The Man Behind" Has Num her of Interesting Football Topics This Week MORE TROUBLE .FOR JOHNSON, WHO IS WORKING HARD TO GET OUT OF JAIL San Francisco, Cal., April 7. "Itj never rains but what it pours." This i seems to be especially true with Jack j Johnson, who is now serving out a twenty-five day jail sentence for vio- lating the speed laws here. Today Jack is plainly worried, for while he Is cnged behind the bars of the Ingle- side Jail a da-aage suit aguiust him for IB coming up in New York, and as Jack's attorney there puts it. the fighter must be on the ground or iose. Already the champion luis lost over in theatrical tiue. The Eastern case is called for April 10. j Johnson's attorney will today again go before the Court -here and ask the conqueror of Jeffries be permitted to leave the jail on parole. The colored champion visited Dis- trict Attorney Fickert and explained the situation. He promised it he was released on parole he would not only agree never again to violate the speed would dispose of his auto- mobiles. Fickert refused to give the cham- pion any encouragement.

"Do I like the scheme of eye ex- amination? Sure thing. Some or'; these noisy fans can see a play bet- ter from the top row in the bleachers than the umpire can from a vantage point hundreds of feet closer. If the umpire has a certificate provhig the correctness of his vision, he has some- thing at least on the irrepressible Jones. "The average fan is about as rea- Isonable in his judgment of an um- pire a? a bull is about a red rag. To them an umpire is simply a tolerated evil and oue to be away with if i possible. A close decision against their favored team is as bad us per- sonally insulting them, and their ac- tions are governed accordingly. Truly the umpire is most unhappy man. No even the ball players stick by him, and from this source comes the greatest j portion of his trouble.

April Torchlight, edited and published by'negroes at Danville, and claiming to be the leading negro news- paper iii Kentucky, hands Jack Johnson, tho fistic champion, tho following editorial wallop in its current issue: have never been able to see in Jack Johnson anything worthy of praise and emulation. We have always regarded the incident ut Reno as the meeting of two vulgar braggards, neither of them representing the best in the race to which he belonged, and neither of them a worthy character to be held up to tho youth of America as a hero worthy of their respect and veneration. IJ.ut it seem? that Johnson is determined to outdo himself as :i lawless, reckless tough. Surely his attention has never been called to the passage in Holy writ which says, 'lie that, ruleth his spirit is might- ier than he that taketh a city.' Johnson has not only become a nuisance to the public, but he has humiliated every one who had any confidence in him or who was willing to accord him friendship, while he has heaped upon his race eternal shame and disgrace. No honest, intelligent citizen hug any respect for the lawbreaker, and when a little money so turns a fellow's head that he thinks he can trample upon the law with imp.unity a good term in prison is the best thing that can come to him. Johnson seems to think his money and notoriety have given him Immunity, and that he has special privileges which his fellow creatures have not. Six months at. hard labor would do Mr. Johnson more good than all the money he received from the Reno bout, and perhaps save the race from further humiliation." POLITICAL TRIUMPH OF BALL MAGNATE AL.
