Covering The Entire State of
America's Last White Hope
Additional Proof That Johnson
Has Conquered The Best Of
What Flamgan Said.
America has lost its last white
hope when Georges Cn-pentier
French champion defeated Gunboat
Smith of U. S. A. in London Thurs-
day July 16th. " Smith's defeat
camn in the sixth round ' he referee's
d cision being given to the French
for a foul blow by Smith. The de-
cision is the fubjoct uf considerable
controversy but had the fight wont
the scheduled twenty rounds and
Carpcnticr had defeated Smith in
the very last round there would
have been the same dissatisfaction
fortius fight was the dying effort of
tho American newspnpors to find a
while man to wrest tho title from
No White "Hope" in Sight.
But John Arthur Johnson is still
ttie heavyweight champion of the
world and from present idicnations
is liable to remain such for some
time to coma. Georges Carpentier.
Jbo victor in the last fight admits
himself that he is no match for Jack
Johnson while unprejudiced judges
of the game will admit that at pres-
ent there is no other white heavy-
weight tember in sight. The pro-
posed fight with Sam Langfordnext
claims nttenion but friends of Jack
Johnson feel no concern over the
outcome of that fight.
Can Whip Any Man
Take it from mo Johnson can
whip any man in the world today
black or white said Tom Flanagan
noted Canadian sportmc authority
upon his return from tho Johnson
Moran go. "Anyone sufficiently in-
terested to leain can find out that
Johnson is in tho bst condition and
takes better care of himself than any
other heavyweight doa. Moran a
young husky giant was cut to pieceh
by Johnson who hammered him at
will and it will be remembered that
tho fight lasted twenty rounds "

The following nre excerpts from
President Wilson's Fourth of July
"We set up this nation nnd we
propose to set it up on the righs of
man. Wo did not name any difer-
enco between one raco nnd another;
Wo did not set up any barriers
against any particular raco or peo-
ple but opened gates to tho world
and said that all men who ws to
bo free can como to us nnd thov will
bo welcome. We said this independ-
ence is not merely for us a selfish
thing for our own private use but
for everybody to whom wo can find
tho means of oxtonding."
Going futeor ho said: ''I am
willing to got anything for an. Amor
ican that money can buy except tho
rights of other men. I will not
help and man buy a power he should
not exercize over his folio w-being.''
