NEW YORK, March 13. Mr. Hugh Mclntosh, promoter of the Burcs-Johnson prize fight, interviewed in New York, said that if Jeffries could get into shape, and would meet Jack Johnson, he thought he could arrange a contest to take place either in England or France. ° If not he would take the combatants to Australia. TEMPTING AUSTRALIAN OFFERS. •MELBOURNE, March 7. Mr. John Wren has secured first option respecting Jeffries' services in the event of that pugilist consenting to meet Jack Johnson for the championship of tlie world. He thinks that if a contest is arranged at all between the men it will take place in Australia, and probably in Melbourne. He has offered Jeffries £10,000 to figK Johnson in Australia, win, lose, or draw. The option Mr. Wren has obtained over the men is that if a very tempting offer is made to Jeffries in other quarters he will have an opportunity of making a still better one. After Jack Johnson won the championship from Tommy Burns at Sydney, Mr. Sam Allen, a member of the Victorian ring, offered a purse of £ 15,000 for a match between Johnson and Jeffries. Mr. Allen, when asked whether his offer still held good, replied that at present he did not know how he exactly stood in the matter. J-ohneon had been a party with him to the offer, being exceedingly anxious to meet Jeffries. When Johnson reaches the home of his mother at Galveston, Texae, U.S.A., he will send a cable message to him (Mr. Allen).
