A local sport writer who spent two months in rthe Jeffries camps, both at Rowardennan and JVIoana Springs, said today: "The facts in a nut-shell point to Jim Jeffries being a beaten man before he crawled through the ropes and his fight against Johnson was only for the mat- ter of putting i-t before the public that demanded it. "The big -fellow's nerves went to pieces at Monday afternoon, as near as can be figured. He had just returned rrom -a stroll on the road -with FranK Gotch and had proceeded to his rub room to go under a massage by Roger Cornell. Goxch had noticed the mental struggle because of the big fellows disinclination to talk. He was rational on the outside, but an. old friend -like Gotch noticed -the change Delaney's old sayin; the minute they started oat on the road. east and tried to hedge on their bets. The rest of the story has been .told. Jelfries went into his dressing room at the arena and it was there that his brother, Jack, discovered his real con- dition. 'What has happened to he whispered anxiously in Cornell's ear. "He's as weak as a cat." In a Stupor "Jeffries also 'was troubled mentally.. He refused to "talk and his assistants not raise him from the stupor that has given rise to the rumor that he was doped. There was certainly, a marked change in the man. The writer was present when he was led into the ring by his seconds and he appeared for all the world as though he were in a daze. "Jim Jeffries is such a curious indi- vidual that his condition, was not so noticeable at -the ttnae but following the circumstances it bears out -to a remark- able degree the story of his collapse." Shattered !do! Another prominent local sport writ-. er said: "James J. Jeffries is today a shat- tered idol. You can go even further than that with him. Ypu can call him the idol that has been beaten, trampl- ed upon and disgraced forever. For every one man'who offers sympathy conflict, with -the two former dates.

He received a great- er ovation wherever he went than eith- er Jeffries or Johnson. When Fitz went into a leading cafe for luncheon such a crowd of spectators followed him in that every table was immediately taken up that they' might watch him. Later on he went into the Golden hotel to meet a friend and the crowd filled the lobby so that busi- ness was absolutely, suspended. Final- ly the management suggested to Bob that -he step out into the street in or- der that guests of the hotel might be able to gel to and from their rooms.

The Progress of the Game Winnipeg got three men on bases in the opening round, the fault of Cyrus Pieh. He. hit Krueger first crack out of the bos, who got a free pass to first.
