Arena, East Reno, July is jinove at Rick's resort during the early ready for the 'big. .battle for the world's championship. Jim Jeffries and Jack Johnson surely will-face each other with tout a short delay after the announced time of 1-30 o'clock this afternoon in the ring in this place. Both men are in grand shape arid at this hour, noon, Pacific time, there is a -tremendous. throng at the 'arena pressing its way into the huge struc- ture. The seating arrangements are'only fairly good and there is confusion in getting the great number of spectators seated. But this was only to foe expected considering that the seating plans had been made for- the arena at San Francisco and had to be condensed to suit the small structure at this place. The fighters spent a feverish morn- ing. Both men were up early, and busied themselves after the careful fast with their final preparations for the ring. The actual packing of the pharaphernalia -was not undertaken at this time. Both fighters are to re- turn to their camps, one a glorious champion and the other humiliated in ..the dust of defeat Both are to leave Reno and its pleasant or unpleasant memories as the case -may be, behind tomorrow night, one for his home on the Pacific coast and the other for his new home in Chicago, where news j is wired here that a regimental -band morning. Johnson's face was marked by the first serious look it has since his arrival ihere. He moved about with -much excitement. All of the de- tails of the match were thoroughly rehearsed toy Manager Flanagan well in advance of the hour. Everyfbody connected with the camp" knew what to do" and did it without -further ado. There was; a tearful parting down town between Johnson and his wife. Chicago, July services were 'held yesterday morning and evening and this morning, "and other special services were held in four negro churches of Chicago to pray for the success of Joh-nson when he enters the ring to, fight Jeffries for the heavyweight championship. At Johnson's home his mother, three sisters, two brothers, -brother-in-law, nephew and niece, were waiting, hop- ing and praying today, and throughout the whole black .belt of Chicago there was one idea, one hope, one prayer, one topic of conversation, that "Little Artha" would "bring home the -ba- con." Johnson's family received the fol- lowing telegram from Reno: "Every- thing two days more, and I will be on my way home with the same title I came away Both Confident Arena, Reno, July fighters and a big parade of automobiles have were confident of victory today when arranged for his reception. cannot make a -finish of this "black man than it's not in one, that's all. I -will die fighting -to the last ounce if de- feat is to toe my portion." Said Johnson in his dressing room: "It will toe a hard -fight and a long one and will take at least twenty rounds. I will wear Jeffries down in that time. I fully toelieve he will then be J easy -to -beat I excel Mr. Jeffries in all points of the game." Billy Delaney, former manager of Jeffries, ibelieves Johnson will win without any trouble. Jeff's Complaint Jeffries is roaring ahont the ring. He does not like the present scheme of padding, claiming there is not "give" enough to it to suit him. The ring Jms psdding of Brussels carpet upside down and is considered saf and fast Berger brought word that Jeffries would not box unless the ring in changed, Reno is overrun with crowds and swell estimates of the crowd at the ringside to eighteen thousand. The number of colored sports is large. intense Heat at Reno Ringside Arena, Reno, July 4. At 1 o'clock the arena -was nearly filled. The heat was intense as the roid-day sun poured its rays into the crater- like structure. The odds are'titlll at 10 to 6. Johnson and his attendants started for the arena at- one o'clock out. The work of. the. Cavalry and Ar- tillery in "the; morning was most in-: teresting. I was much struck with the excellent. material of both men and horses. .The men rode wonderful- ly well and displayed much "dash and go." I feel siire they are a, very val- uable and useful force.
