Refe^ Rendered D^w Dedsioii CHICAGO, Dec. 4.-Patrons ot a wrestling match between William Demetral, the Greek wrestler and'Jack Linow, billed as the Russian Lion, staged a Haymarket riot, which drew scores ot police to the Haymarket Theatre when Referee Johnny Myers gave a^aw decision at midnight last night. Hopping the match. . Demetral Von the first tall in So:20 and ijnbw had a headhold on Demetral- when ;Mie referee stopped the match.' SOenery, .box curtains, footlights and othor decorations were torn down and smashed by the audience, which clamored against the halting of a "finish" match by a draw decision. The few policehien present at the bout were powerless until reserves arrived and swept the rioters out into the streets.

MAKES NEW BILLIARD RECORD NEW YORK.-Charley Peterson, the fancy billiard shot expert from St. Louis, estajbliflhed what Is believed to be a new world's record for speed in clicking off caroms when he made a riln of 1,020 points in 5 minutes and JO seconds. Peterson holds the record for 100 shots-27 seconds. By W. A. Phelen I>ont forget, among the memories of the raceut seriea, that Clarence Mitchell, of the Brooklyna. broke ail records in baseball history. Mitch, iu two successive times at bat, put out five ot his own team, and that's something without a parallel. It was Mitchell who hit into the famous unassisted triple play-and the next time he came up he slammed Into a double killing. Babe Ruth refuses to stay quiet. The other day, he announced that he would not accept a vaudeville contract fpr $3,000 a week because they wanted him to do four shews a day. Next, he will probably refuse a movie eon-tract that rcqulrSe him to wear a dreas-ault In the aeeend reel.

FORMER n (From Our Own Correspondent.) CARMANGAY, Dec. 8.-Preparations are in progress to make hookey, Canada's speedy national winter aport, boom along this line this winter. Hockey enthusiasts have in mind the formation ot a league consisting ot Vulcan, Champion and Carmangay. Barons would also be included if the tans want to put a team on the ice. Vulcan is organizing and will have a speedy crew in the field. Champion has done nothing tangible yet, but according to representations from that town, she would be included in such a league as is now being tentatively discussed. Carmangay Onganlaes Carmangay is wild for hockey. Last night an enthusiastic meeting was held and the Carmangay Skating and Hockey club formed. Mr. Skinner, ot Taylor's store, was elected president, Chas. Messinger, eecretary-treaaurer, and Tom Goodgsir, Stan McGiflnis and A. F. McKfbbin were named as a rink management committee. Thhy were empowered to employ a caretaker for the rink for the'season. Season tickets will be sold to meet the overhead expenses of operating the rink. The hockey team will probably be self-supporting. The ticket drive commenced this morning, the executive leading in the sale. The rates are: Children's tickets |1, family tickets |2, and adults $2. Good Material Carmangay has some good hockey material this year. Several new boys will be seen on the ice. Two fast lads will be missing from the line-up, Dar-rel Hummon, who is at the University of Alberta, and Lester Snyder, a Claresholm A. C. student. Some of the old-time hockey players will likely be seen in play again this season. Altogether the outlook here is rosy. Curlers Going To Scotland Can Georges Carpentler defeat Jack Dempsey? James J. Corbett, conaueror ot John L. Sullivan, .tl^O greatMt ot his generation; Wiliio Ijbwis; for years the idol ot the Amerl.can ring; Jack Mc-Aulifte. the world's nndeteated lightweight champion i and^oe Jeaiiette all agree that the idol of Franca, lUis nifore than a Chinaman'* chance oricat>tUring the world's championship. ' Lewis, who ought to know something about it,.havtng given Carpentler the most senaattonal fight of his career, does not 8tlb|) at discussing the possibilities ot the outcome ot a Car-pentler-Dempsey meeting. He declares with positive anaUrance that Carpen- REPS DECISION Didn't Like Delaney Getting Best of Bad Perrill in Bout at Calgary CALGARY, Dec. 4.-Cal Delaney, the Cleveland lightweight, won a referee's decision over Bud Perrill ot South Chicago here last night after 15 rounds oif fast milling. The crowd booed the referee's decision, claiming the worse that Perrill should have received was a draw. Although Delaney proved himself to be a rugged, tough battler, Perrill was Just about as clever a boxer that has been seen in Calgary and put up a stonewall defense, besides rocking Delaney with a straight left and a "knockout" right. In the semi-wlndup Al Ross, scored a technical knockout over Harry Davis in the second round. They were mlddleweights.. CUTS TRAINING SEASON OF THE RED SOX TO THEEE WEEKS ONLY tier will knock out Dempsey* and he is willing to bet money, on his dope. He points out that the French boxer was fighting Klaus,, Papke, Dixie Kid and Jeanette when, ha In his teens. With the wealth of ring. experience he has gained in fourteen years of fighting, and his natural, speed and ability, Carpentler should bbat Dempsey, Lewis says. And listen to McAnlltte: "Don't forget that when Dempsey faces Carpentler he is going to look the fastest fighter ot the generation sQuarely in the eye. Carpentler makes the fastest flghtec look slow. And with his speed he carries a wallop that is a haymaker. When he hits 'em he hits 'em hard. What's more, Georges is a fast thinker. I think.he's causing Dempsey worry right now." After watching Carpentler fight four rounds in the "movies'.' last night, the writer is forced, to come to the same conclusion. Jt.ia why they call Georges the "idol of .Franco" after seeing him go'through his paces botb'aa a fighter and as an actor. Georges is a perfect picture., As a writer said recently, he has made boxing truly a manly art ot self-defence. Indeed. Carpontier'S boxing is about as artistic a treat as the writer has had in many a day, and the visitor from France apparently; packs a wicked wallop. But what impressed the writer most was Carpentier's physique. Although he seems slight in his str^ft^dress, he looks altogether ditrerent^wben stripped. His massive legs and magnificent back and arm muscles dissipate the Illusion of sllgbtness and show the man as he really is-a compost, swift-moving, sure-hitting fighting machine. And, after all, he is not so much smaller than Dempsey. T A I L O R BOSTON, Dec. 4.-The training season for the Red Sox in 1921 will be cut to three week's instead of the cus-: ternary month or six weeks, accord-! ing to Manager Duffy. He expects the squad to be, mobilized' at Hot Springs, Arkansas, about March 9.; Last year the team made a thruO thousand mile trip after the training season was over and' returned to Boston a tired lot, ot players.
