' "The man who administered the knockout blow was none other than Ted ("Kid") Lewis, the present welterweight champion of the world. "But the peculiar part of the affair was the fact that Ritchie was not one of the participants, but only the referee. "Harry Brewster, forraeriy welterweight champion of the world, was the man who was matched with T6d Ijewis, and tlie bout was one of the best ever put up in the south. '"Phe two boys had fought several furious rounds, and close to the end of the fourth round Heferee Ritchie, in an effort to separate the two men in a clinch, received one pt Lewis' blows to the jaw and fell l.n a heap.

Carrothers, who was extradited from iievr York and charged with | false pretenses was commenced Wednesday, morning in criminal court before Mr. Justice Walsh after being adjourned from the last criminal sittings. H. H. Robertson apeared for the accused while S. B. Woods,'k.C. and E. B. pogswell acted for the crown. After the jury was empanelled Mr. Woods outlined the case of the crown in the following allegations: Carrothers was in 1916 and 1917 at the head of the "Alberta School Supply Co.." in Edmonton. This firm not only supplied school furniture and fittings but made a business of contracting for the building of country schools and selling the debentures of newly formed' districts. The firm did Us banking with the Union Bank and from that institution Carrothers procured a lino of credit.. This credit was advanced on the security afforded by.a number of school debentures deposited with the local bVanch of the bank. Thus to get $20,-000 credit the accused had to have ?20,-000 worth of debentures on deposit. After running up a line of credit Carrothers went east and the bank found thatlthe debentures they held wpi;e not worth the :p^per they were written on. Allege Duplicate Bonds. Mr. Woods told the jury that the crown would prove that the accused � made a practice of sending debenture j forms to the new school districts and 1 after these were signed and returned j to him he would inform the school; boards that there was some mistake and flew forms would have to be made out. Then he would retain the first debentures for his own use and when the second form can;e back would obtain the signature of the minister of education and sell them according to reigu-lar procedure. This would, of course, render the first form of no value /whatever. , Before the evidence was taken Mr. Robertson stated that the accused was charged on three counts but could not be tried on all of these since he was extradited from the United States on only a portion of them. The first witness called by the crown was Norman Leslie, a former accountant of the Edmonton branch of the Union Bank. This witness declared that he was familiar with Carrothers' signature and identified the signature of the accused on several letters written by the school supply company to various rural school trustees. Mr. Woods intimated that this witiiess would be recalled. Acadia School District. Sydney B. Hepburn, secretary treasurer of Acadia school district was next put in i'ue box. He told ti^e court that he had had business dealings with Carrothers and that the Jatter had sent him debenture forms to be signed. Carrothers was to have them countersigned by the minister of education and then sold. A short timejatei-, tlie witness said, another letter arrived from the accused saying that since the dato had been .changed on the first form he would have to send another one to be filled in and signed. This was done and the last debenture was sold to the Grown Life Insurance company in a regular way. The witness then said that one of the coupons from the school debenture was sent to a local bank for payment and since payment had already been made on the genuine debenture no attention was paid to it. Found Servlos Ssitlsfactory. Under cross examination by Mr. Robertson, the witness admitted that he had always found Carrothers' service quite'satisfactoryi^ud that he had recommended him , to another newly formed district near by. Mr. Woods was at this point about to recall the first witness to prove Carrothers' signature again but the defence agreed to admit the lettesrs in order to save time. Practically the same story was told by Joe Ardell, sfeeretary treasurer of Fertile Forest School district, who was then called to the stand by the crown. This witness declared that Carrothers had supplied him with a debentnre form which was signed and returned, Forin Was Illegal. Another letter t^en came from the accused in which it was pointed out that the first form was illegal. Another one was then signed and the school board being under the impression that since the minister of education had not countersigned'the first one there could bo no reascin for demanding its return to them.-:'i' The morning session rested at this point. Proof that Carrothers deposited the debentures' with thebank as security rather than: for safekeeping"has not yet been forthqomlng although it is. possible that t^ie defence may rest its case on this pdijjtii \.
