By the Associated Press VERSAILLES, June 28.—An official report from the Hall of Mirrors to the State Department says that President Wilson and the American delegation completed the signing of the peace treaty, .making a formal end of the great war at 3:14 o’clock this afternoon. The treaty was signed by Dr. Hermann Mueller and Dr. Johannes Bell for Germany at 3:12 and 3:13 o’clock, respectively, they being the first to attach their signatures to the famous document, tilt most important peace treaty of peace in the world's history. Premier Clemenceau, president of the peace delegation, put the direct question to the Germans whether or not they were willing to sign and execute loyally the terms in every particular. The answer of the German delegates was favorable and the signing went forward. The delegations from the Allied nations were seated in the Hall of Mirrors when the Germans entered, and they kept their seats while the enemy delegates filed into the historically famous room. After the signature of the Germans came the signatures of the American delegates headed by the signature of President Woodrow Wilson. The British names followed the Americans, and the remainder came in the order set forth in the treaty. The    Chinese    delegation,    shortly before the hour set for    the    signing,    reiterated    their determination not    to sign.

Dempsey fought sixteen ring battles last year and scored thirteen knockouts. One of these, with Arthur Pelky at_ Denver, went 15 rounds; two of them ended in the sixth, Carl Morris and Bill Brennan, being the victims but eight of them were abruptly finished in the opening round.

Aside from the actual purse money of $127,500 signed for by the two pugilists, $100,000 of which is guaranteed to Willard, win, lose or draw, the enormous amount of cash which will be handled in connection with the coming bout, dwarfs all previous ring contests into financial oblivion. The “gate,” from the sale of tickets and concessions is expected to pass the one million dollar mark which would make the receipts of previous fistic carnivals look very small in comparison. Tex Rickard, the daring promoter who is bringing the two big men together in this bout, generally does things on a large scale. He secured the Johnson-Jeffries fight for a guarantee of $101,000 and at Reno, his receipts amounted to $270,000. Of course the promoter was at an enormous outlay in bringing that con- j    o’clock, test to an issue, having been fore-    The game BASEBALL TOMORROW I The season come first baseball to be played off tomorrow i i the Iiy the Associated Press CHICAGO.

It will arrive at Brest on Sundav morning, where the president will board the steamship George Washington, which sails about noon. On his arival in the United States, President Wilson will go straight to Washington to lay before congress the results of the peace conference.

At first glance this seems reasonable but Rickard is going to pay the regular wrar tax of ten percent on all tickets purchased and has guaranteed the local authorities a percentage also The United Stains government however, will have a big claim for income tax so that when everything is deducted from the “gate” Rickard’s margin of profit will probably fall far short of the results he attained in some of his previous ventures.
