The sun broks through a darkly ovensst sky us, the crowds began to arrive today at the scene of ths world's heavyweight championship fight between Jack Johneon of Texas and Jess Wlllard of Kaunas. The setting for ths bstUs was picturesque. A ring had bsen erected directly on the racs track la front of the big steel grandstand. The long slope In front or the grandstand leading to ths track was covered with seats like those of a circus. About the ring boxee were arrangnd and more circus scats were In the field. Ringside box eeats sold for IK, aiope seats cost fiO, while U was paid for grandstand seats. From $15, the prices tot other seats fell Id $3 for general admission, but In addlr tlon to the, fight prices all spectators were required to pay II for tha privilege of wltneeslng tha racing at the conclusion of the fight. It was strongly braced beneath to withstand the weight of the pugilists, Wlllard being probably the largest man who ever entered the prlxe ring for a championship fight. : Two hours before time for the fight, the ring waa being completed. The heavy hemp ropes were wrapsed twice with black tire tape. Clrest care was being taken in preparing ths floor beneath the red ennvas covering and a score of red blankets were placed there as padding. ' Krorn two platforms moving picture mm hlnes were focused on ths ring. Five machines comprised tha battery, three" to be used regularly and two to be held In reeerve. ' FORGOT THE GONG. There was great excitement about 11 o'clock when' It was discovered that no one had thought about the bell to be rung at the starting and stopping of the oundi. Two messengers were dispatched to Havana to purchase a gong. Cuban, troops began to reach ths track at half past 10. Several cornpinlcr'of Infantry and two troops of khaki clad cavalry wars aoon oa ths scene. 'The racecourse ' Is surrounded with hills, some of which are topped with pelme. The fight management, seeing the poenlbltlty of moving picture machines equipped with tclexoplc lenses, operating from the hflls, had guards sU- turned st all vantage points "overlooking me ngnt arena. At 11 o clocg the sua and cloud were Si ?-5a;tX-4f- ! Yy -' 'v 1. still fighting for supremacy. Several very dark clotilds were hanging over ths sea and offering a menace of Tain. ' FORTV-fTVE LIMIT. Forty-five rounds' was tha schedule length of the fight.-but few of the thousands who gathered entertained even a passing belief that it would go that long. That . would mean three hours of fighting, allowing for the one-minute rest between rounds, Tex O'Rourke, one of Wlllard's advisers, thought that in the first' 10 rounds the advantage would be with Johnson, because of his superior skill. After this, O'Rourke said, Wlllard would wear the champion down. In 80 rounds or less, he thought, Wlllard would win. Jess Wlllard hopped out of bed With the rising sun, and after a light arm-stretching exercise, had breakfast. "I am fit," said Wlllard to a crowd of admirers which came over to his training quarters to look the cowboy giant over. "Why should not I be ready? I have worked hard for several weeks and liti down- to my props ring weight cjf .Impounds. I have left Just enough fatTon me to burn off during the fight." i , , JACK'S GOLDEN SMILE, f.f Jack Johnson smiled his famous golden smile at his headquarters while he idled away the time before the fight. The black champion took a stroll before breakfast, but beyond thut did nothing in the line of exercise. Johnson Is undoubtedly over his best ring weight, and though he said he would enter the ring at 1125, he appeared to be 'several pounds heavier. "I'll be there all the way," laughed Johnson, "i know when I have reached my best condition. All this talk of my having lost my punching ability Is nonsense." There . has been little preliminary betting, but there were indications that wagering would beooine more brisk as the day wore on. " Almost every one with money to place apparently waited for an eleventh hour shift In the odds. In ths hope of better terms, Johnson wbs favorite with the odds at S to 5 and 6 to 6. These were the figures obtutned today at the Mirainar Hotel, where the lute arrivals from Key" West and New Orleans flocked before the fight. Uncertain os' to Johnson's real condition and Wlllard's ability are ths factors which , have kept down tha betting, and there was as much speculation regarding these questions as there was a week ago. It is Johnson's skill and' experience agalnst Wlllard's youth, the experts said, TO MAKE 'KM FIGHT' " "jack Welsh, the referee, said he anticipated no trouble refereeing ths Watch.' "There will be no technical champion It I can help It. The win. ner will have to earn his laurels fairly. I have talked the rule over with the flghtera and they know what Is expected of them." Early estimates of the crowd which began to gather with the sunrise placed their number at 17,000. They came from ' everywhere'. The.' hotels emptied after an early breakfast. Most of them were filled with Amer icans w ho had been here-several days ln anticipation of the-hlg event. Before daybreak crowds of natives. Igecjye. Jjj fjje belief And hope that Johnson would retain his laurels, began pouring into the city. The streets were filled with a motley throng, and the training quarters of the pugilists were the center of admirers. Hours before the twp giants stepped Into" the ring the stands were black with spectators.- ... '. They went to the track by auto-bile, by trolley, ln every available vehicle ln Havana and on foot. President Menocal and his cabinet, the congress of Cuba, the governor, of Havana province, the. mayor: of the city, foreign minls'ters and ..hundreds ef-.-women-wer.e In 4he-audianceTh electric lines .were unable to handle the crowds and many walked the ten miles from Havana.. The promoters went during the morning to Johnson's headquarters to pay him the 30,000 which ho was to receive as his share of the gate receipts, win or lose. Under the agreement, Johnson was to receive one-third of the movlng-pioture privilege. Wlllard's share was 25 per cent of the total receipts and one-third Interest In the movlntr pictures.
