weights . lh 'the gymnasium. ' There '-was
nothlng; spectacular- in the work -and It
did not ' have as much , Interest for the
visitors as boxing, but it gave them- an
excellent opportunity to Judge Jeffries' con
dition. -For 'half an 'hour Jeffries hauled
away at the weighted ropes. Then fob
lowed shadow boxing, rope Skipping and
bag punching for an hour and a half. ''
Jeffries explained that his prolonged ses
sion with the chest weights was to limber
up his neck and shoulder muscles to avoid
any future attack of the cramp which
suddenly stopped him Friday In the-mlddle
of a boxing bout with Bob Armstrong;.
Jeffries has done no boxing sines' that time,
and his masseurs have paid" particular at

WESTERCAARD IN FINE FORM
Says He Will Make Zbyszko Go the
rOLISII FAIR BACK FAVORITE
Some Offering; Odds Against Dane
Preliminary Rrtwrrs Ilokoff
and Pabrlkn Attrartlna
Interest. ' "If Zbyssko wins that match tonight he
will have t go the whole route," said Jess
Westergaard this morning, when asked
what hlo prospects for winning the wrest
ling match with the Pole at the Auditorium
looked like to him. -
"I am In good fcnape and am able to go
the whole distance unless some element of
luck enters Into the contest that I cannot
foresee. I have been ' Working hard since
I was here last and I know I am In the
best condition that I cquki wish." .
He looked the part, too.
' "After the accident tojny ankle after the
last match with Zyhszko, I went" to Hot
Springs and got it back in shape and since
that time have done Iota of rough work
and find that It is as good as ever.
"In, the last match- here with the
Polander I had a fine opportunity to try
him out and I know more about him than
I did before. I believe: that at this time
I am getting in better, shape to go up
against his game than I have ever been.
I never go lnte a match unless I am In
good condition and when I say I am feel
ing fine and expect to give my opponent a
game, the public must take me seriously,
for I have never 'fooled anyone yet."
Scat reservations are being made trom all
parts of the, state and Manager Gtllan of
the' Auditorium looks for one of the big
gest houses that has ever witnessed a
match of this kind In Omaha.
The Bohemians of the city are displaying
Interest In the preliminary match between
Ilokoff and Paveika. Both are Bohemians
and the country admirers bf the game are
betting their money oil Paveika while the
the city sportsmen' are wagering theirs on
Hokoff. And there Is quite a little activity
In the betting-end at that.'
In the big match the Polish population Is
willing to back Zbyszko to the limit and In
some oases are offering odds.

Lower: Hrase la Likely to Pnaa Rail
road Bill this Week.
WASHINGTON, April 18.-U looks, after
all, as If the house will, beat the senate
In passing the administration railroad bill,
notwithstanding the faot that the latter
had a start of two pr three weeks In tak
ing up the measure.
About the only advantage in this priority
Is found in the fact that the new law for
the control of - transportation lines, while
prepared almost entirely by Attorney Gen
eral Wlckersham, will bear the name of
Representative Mann of Illinois Instead of
Senator Elklcs of West Virginia-
Preparations have been made In the
house for the early closing of debate on
the measure, Mr, , Mann yesterday secured
the adoption of a motion by. which night
sessions, may be held tomorrow .and TUP-
day. It Js expected,, that by next Thurs
day general debate, will have been , con
cluded and that on Friday the bill will
be placed before the house for amend
ment under the five-minute rule. .Repub
lican leaders believe It can be passed by
Saturday. . Several days will elapse in all
probability before the . railroad bill Is
taken up again In the senate.
Consuls ration of the rivers and harbors
bill will be resumed Monday, and Senator
Mewlands will speak In advocacy of a
more complete co-operation on the part
of those responsible for the various im
provement projects. When he concludes
the bill will be considered.
Tremendous pressure is being brought
to bear on President Taft to take some
part in deciding the claims of rival cities
for the honor of holding an exposition In
1915 n commemoration of the completion
of , the Panama canal. During the latter
part of next week he will receive Governor
Glilett and a large delegation of San
Franciscans to urge the selection of the
Golden Gate city. New Orleans and San
Diego citizens have been here already and
Washlngtonians are shouting their bids
on every occasion when the opportunity
The confidence of the delegations that
the canal will be finished In 1915, and that
the government -will take part In the cele
bration In soma, selected city Is sublime.
All of the cities named apparently are go
ing ahead with their plans, for that date
without a thought of what will happen If
the canal la not. finished them. Thus far.
the president has given nothing, but kind
words to tbe exposition boomers.
' Now that the Standard OH and the Amer
ican Tobacco company cases - are to- be
reargued, the corporation ' tax cases move
up into first rank among those In which
decisions may . be. expected In the near
future. It Is not Impossible that decisions
may be handed down In these cases when
the court meets tomorrow.
Secretary Wilson expects to set an. ex
ample for cabinet members this year. He
Is now planning his vacation to make It
serve some purpose for the advancement of
the Department of Agriculture. There are
several big problems confronting the de
partment, among them the forestry Ques
tion, and It, is ILkely that he will make an
Inspection of the forestry servjoe. Secre
tary Dickinson will spend his vacation
visiting the Panama canal and other In
sular possessions, and Secretary Meyer Is
talking of going to the several navy yards,
making leisurely visits.

CATHOLICS HO.-VOR ST. JOSF.PII
Father Dooley Tells of the Just Man
Who Was Exalted.
Roman Catholla churches In Omaha on
Sunday celebrated the feast of St. Joseph,
the patron of the' universal church, with
fitting ceremony. Pope Plus the Ninth,
during his reign aa head of the church,
recommended that St. Joseph be selected
as the patron of the churoh, as well as the
head of the holy family.
Rev. W. F. Dooley, a J of St. John's
Cathollo church, spoke of St. Joseph at
the 9 o'clock mass. He said that scrip
ture Is strangely silent concerning the life
of Joseph and sums up his character In the
phrase that he was "a Just man." Father
Dooley said that this was a very high
tribute, as the virtue of Justice contains
within Itself all of the other virtues. "A
man to be just," he said, "must be Just
to God', his neighbor and himself."

but during the later years It hns been
sadly dilapidated. The police have prob
