There was gloom In the camp of Omaha

Kane was hurt playing basket ball and
might lose the tlht ot ono eye. In whloh
event he would never play professional

more Joy than there was gloom. Kane

Jeff Gan Come
Declares He is Now in 'Good Form
ajid Will Be Normal When He
' Meets Johnson.
Frank Gotch, champion wrestler, who Is
traveling with Jeffries, says Jim Is O. K.
and will whip Johnson. He sums up the
case In these words:
I believe I 'have been associated with
James J. Jeffries long enough to be able to
write accurately about him. 1 n all the
time that I have been with him 1 hav
not discovered any weakness In the retired
champion's makeup, and I can see no rea
son why he should not go into the ring
Juiy 4 In the very bet condition.
I do not agree with the pcsstmlxts that
he has suffered" oy his long layoff from
active pugillstlo duty, and 1 am firm in tn j
belief that he will be very nearly as good
as the Jeff -who mowed down Runlin, t'ltz
slmnions, Corbett, bharkey, et al., If not
s good as he ever1 was. ,
Many Questions have been raised about
Jeffries since hi; first announced that he
woum light joiihson. Ths cry from every
Quarter of the globe haft been: "He can i
get baf k In shape. He may be able to go
a rew rounds, out in a long fight he
surely will be whipped by the colored fel
Everyone knows that I take' good care
or. myself, and l arn free to confess that I
am about all in after a fifteen-minutes'
stunt on the mat. Walt till Jeff gets into
his training camp and does a few stunts
in tne mountains and you will see how
good his wind Is.
He will have plenty of breathing capaotty
because I know; his lungs have not been
nurt during his ans-nce from the rinnr. All
he netds Is plenty of good, hard work and
ne will go into the ring In fine fettle.
The other day we wrestled for a half
nour and he finished fully as strong as I
did. . Of course, he Is not a finished g rap
pier, but he gave me a hard battle.
I was forced to use the Uraoao-Roman
style of wrestling, "because he did not want
me to work on his legs. In the thirty mln
utes that we were tussling I was able to
pin mm down btit ones. This should show
how great. Is his strength, because he
knows little of the wrestling game.
Those, who have been doubunir Jeffries'
sincerity and his seal in training for John
son snouia travel with him for a while.
Uhey soon would become believers in him.
When I started out with the Frasee show
I was not a great admirer of Jeffries. In
fact, I was one of the doubters, but 1 have
grown to see that he is honest and that he
Is working as hard as any man could to
gt-t Into shape.
I have left the columns of the doubters to
be one of his staunchest supporters, and
the main reason for the change- Is the
manner or life Jeff Is living. He Is follow
ing the straight ah narrow path, and if he
Is beaten It will not be because he has
dissipated while preparing tor the fight.
In the eight weeks that I have been with
him I havt not seen him take a single
urink, and I think I am safe In saying
no liquor hai passed . his lips In that
Another great- point hi favor of Jeffries
Is his determination. If ever a man had a
set purpose, that man Is Jeff, and the pur
pose Is to defeat Johnson. While he is go
ing .lo fight for one of th greatest sums
a lighter evrr commanded, I really be
lieve the pleaiiure of deflating Johnson
would be a greater reward for him than
all the money in the world.
He would not stall for a second In order
to enhance his profits from the pictures of
the Dout, or tor any other reason, and
when the fight comes off, my opinion on
this matter wilt be proven true.

Leniro to Stay Fixed,
LAMRO, 8. P., Jan. 21-(Speclal.) Tha
people of Lamro wish to correct a mis
taken Impression which has become current,
to the effeot that the building and busi
ness of the town were being moved to the
new townslte of Winner, two miles north
of here, because the .latter place was on
the survey of the proposed extension of
the Northwestern from Dallas. This report
Is erroneous, as the business men of Lamro
are not moving and have no Intention of
moving to Winner or any other site. They
do pot credit the claims' of the new town
that the railroad will miss Lamro by two
miles, and It would not Influence their In
tentlon to stand fast In the old town If
the thing was assured. The report that
the town was moving ffrew out of the fact
that two of the four bank in Lamro had
been moved to 'the townslte of Winner,
together with one of the four hotels, one
hardware firm and one general store. Ths
removal of these firms does not affect ths
business of Lamro, except to remove a con
gested cmdftlon in these lines. The busi
ness houses 'moved were bought bodily by
the promoters of the new townslte. Lamro
being the county seat of Tripp county, It
is not worrying Over the matter, but wishes

exists. It Is one of the llvest wires In the

NO APPLICATIONS TfBT ENTERED
Commissioner Dennett Says Alaska
- Claims All Held Up.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 23. Aecordlng to a
statement issued today by Commissioner
Dennett of the general land office, none of
the applications to enter Alaska coal lands
has passed to entry. It Is also shown that
of tho Alaska coal cases preliminary ad'
verse reports have been received covering
about 700 entries. The Cunningham group
of thirty-three entries, upon whloh payment
was made In 190$ and 1907, and which wilt
cut an Important figure tn the Balllnger-
Plnchot inquiry, are now in hearing upon
adverse report of agents. Final reports
nave oeen received upon about 100 entries,
upon a large number of whloh the general
land office has recommended criminal pro
ceedings . Adverse proaeedlngs to cancel
entries have been directed upon most of the
entries finally reported upon by agents.
In the United States at large final ad
verse reports from agents have been re
ceived during the last twelve months upon
cases Involving over 150,000 acres of land
within the United States. Much of this
la coal land.
It appears from these reports made dur
ing the last eight years, coal lands within
the United States have been obtained by
fraud to the extent of more than 60. 000
acres. These entries usually cover the
very best of the coal and are estimated as
being worth $10,000,000. It Is declared that
if mined on a royalty sufficiently low to
enable independent operators to compete
with existing coal combinations the returns
to the government would reach over $100,-
000,000. All of these patent are from five
to eight years old.
Indications are that the fiscal year end
ing June, 1910, will show 50,000 acres of pat
ented land recovered and that the cash
collections will approach or exceed the
$1,000,000 appropriated for the work. Re
ports Involving over $3,000,000 In timber tres
pass also have been made during the year.
Suits have been filed tn many of the cases.
During the six months ending January 1,
$347,621 was collected on account of public
lands and during the fiscal year 1908-0t),
$403,441. The collections for the entire pre
ceding four years were less than $500,000.

It Is probable that the active trials of
criminal cases for th February term of

In February The November term was only
completed a week ago and It was expected
