RECOUNTS JOHNSON VICTOR FROM FAR AND NEAR Sharp Shooters From Many Points Attend Local Tournament Results of First Day's Shoot Veteran Tells How White Giant Wen Down Before Negro in Reno Ring John L. Sullivan) San Francisco, July John son proved himself the master of Jim Jeffries Monday battering his foe almost at will for fifteen rounds. From start TO finish the giant negro from Texas kept up a rain of blows and an incessant fire of.ban-tering talk, which .at one time brought reproof from the referee. u'he contest resulted in clinch after with Jeffries doing most of the holding in an effort to .save "himself. .The colored man not only failed to show the streak of fear many had ex- pected, but at times' seemed absolute- ly careless in his attitute toward the man who could not retain the ring title. From almost the first round Jeffries apparently was doomed, iiis blows fail- ed to reach and his judgement DJ. dis- tance was woefully at fault. In the he was only saved from a knock- out by the action of Johnson in re-1 .framing when he saw his opponen .hopelessly crushed. The first interstate Association reg- istered Tournament held by the Alber- ta Gun Club, opened in the city yester- day with 'twenty-four guns attending. 1 Of these four were professional shoot- ers, or trade representatives.

The game was interesting to watch and far su- perior to the recent match between Calgary and Lethbridge. Some of the players on the home team's line-up, from whom most was expected were not there with the nec- essary ability. Too many usually bril- liant lights were lacking in lustre. In fact, man for man, the Lethbridge team was outshone in every point on the field, with the exception of Mc- Corvy who was as brilliant as of old and seemed -to be the only member of the blues who was there with a fin- ished and capable argument.
