The people of Oklahoma, are anxious to have .Tack Johnion i^'hlpped and tlie champion-Bhip restored to the white race.

JVlcFarland has not yet given out any announcement as to the acceptance of the offer, but so far as the weigh't is concerned he would have DO objections. ' Wells's claim to t:be English title is Ills vlolory over Freddie Welsh in a 20-round bout last week. Wells fought In New York last year and did not make muoh of an impression on the critics. He was given a decision in a ton-round go with Johnny Dohan at the Falrmom A. C. in July and won from Jimmy Howard on a foul in a scheduled ten-round affair. Howard had him beaten all the way through, but the Bnglisiimap claimed a foul in the ninth. WeUs lost to Paddy Sul-'llvan In ten roiunds at the. Fairmont A. 0. in August. He was repeatedly knocked to the ropes in this scrap. Hie record ia not one that causes any apprehension on the part of Packeys followers.
