STILL WAITING FOR
Judge Hollistei's Opinion on tho Jef-
fiies-Ruhlin Fight Is Due Today.
fly Kxclushf Wire fim I he Aweelated l'rc.
Cincinnati, Pel). IS. The prepara
tions for the contest between Jeffries
and Ktihlin iiuil between Mai tin and
Chllds luxe pi on uded here today thu
same as usual, and tho promoters ex
pert the ex ems to take place on time
next Prlday night. Over fl.OOO was
taken In for tickets todaj, making an
aggiegnte of over $13,000 to date. If
the application for an Injunction Is re
fused on Thutsday morning, the pio-
moteis expect ordeis to bo numerous
that day and on Fildax.
While there has Deen much talk
about postponing the contest, no ac
tion has been taken In that dliectlon
and nono will be taken befoie Thurs
day afternoon . Theio were various te
poits toduv and tonlgnt about meet
ings of the Saengeitest Athletic asso
ciation dliectois for the purpose of
postponing the contest. Intel x lews
with those directors show theie an
i'o lerttlar mee lng o the board to
day and that theie will be none until
Thin sday afternoon.
The decision of Judge Holllster Is
looked for at 11 o'clock Thursday
morning, but It may be noon before it
Is announced. Theie Is much specu
lation as to what will be done alter
the decision becomes known.
If Judge Holllster Issues the In
junction against the contest, tho at
torneys tor tho piomoturs say thit
they xxlll then appeal the ease to a
blghci couit and thence to the Sn
piemo court. In that exent there Is
no doubt about the directors of tho
Saengei test Athletic association meet
ing on Thutsday afternoon xlth Man
agers Brady, Madden arid otheri and
postponing tho date of the contest lor
tx'o or tlnee weeks, do as to gtxe
them time tor the cose to hi caul d
to the couit of last lerort Mean
time, theie Is much comment oxei the
actlxe piepaititlons of Ooiernor Nafh
In having txo or thtec companies of
mllltl 1 nxvaltlng orders to pioceed to
Clin Inn.itl. It Is claimed the goxeinor
v 111 use the tnilitl.i to enfore the In
Juni tlon of Judge Holllster. The pio
niotois say that they xou!d In no
event attempt to conduct the event It
an In tunc tlon should be lsued against
them They xxould then appeal the
case and postpone tho contest so as
to gix'c ample time for tho cat rx lng
the ease to the higher courts.
If Judpe Holllster should grant an
Injunction against the pilze light and
not against such a boxing contest ns
that lor which Mayor Flelschmann,
has Issued his permit, then It Is quite
piobable that the promoters xxlll go
ahead undei their oilginal claim that
they piopose lo glxe a bovlng contest
that eoiuen xxlthln the laws of Ohio,
and not such a prl:e fight ns xiould
xlolnte the state laws. In that event
It is anticipated by many that Ooier
nor Nash xxould Interfere and that
theie might be setlous complications.
The concensus of opinion Is that Judge
Holllster xUI assume Jurisdiction and
giant a peimanent Injunction
Theie was the usual activity today
mound the tialnlng quintets of Jeff
ilts, Utihllu, Jiailln and Chllds.
Messrs. Hiady, I'ook, Madden nnd
othiis aie kept busy with the aunnge
ments In tho city, and seem confident
that the decision of Judge Holllster
will bo against the Injunction and Hint
they will hold the contest on schedule
