So, much baa boon written about Jack
Johnson and his topics of late that to
add a jot of criticism to the things that

Is a sporting angle to tho Johnson cose
and It Invites discussion.
It scorns to tho writer that Johnson
has been eliminated an thoroughly from
the puglllstlo outlook as though he had
been signally defeated by some rival
heavyweight. Even the regret that no
one has been found capable of beating

at his alleged misconduct Is such that

The last straw came when Hugh Mo.

that one can readily Imagine how quickly

Of course there will be no Johnson

The exposure made may moke Johnson

that Is, If ho continues a free man
and such being the case he might enter
tain one of tho offers placed before him
some time ago by the Paris promoters.
There Is a possibility, pf course, that even
Paris may withdraw Its Invitation to
Johnson to appear in a French ring, and
if this Is done the champion will be as
completely corralled, puglllstlcally, as a
steer In a pen, for the chain at disbar

Even with matters as they are now
there Is a good chande for the white
heavies to engross the public attention
It they have sense enough to rise to the
