"j&omhardier, Wells is here to do business with .-.any of the leading white rheavies,. Luther McCarty preferred. Driscoll comes to arrange a match for the international featherweight championship with Johnny Kilbane,: the American title holder, while  Welsh is after the scalp of Willie Ritchie, our "- premier light-weight.' , When \l !sh was last here the demand for, his services was not very brisk. -Itwas'thpught the fast little Briton-had shot his bolt as a boxer of the highest olass. He spent several weeks in Gotham in a futile attempt to get a match, and finally sailed away in disgust at' the turn things had taken. But it is Very much dif- one. Freddie has a: decision over Wil-'lie and it is up to "the .latter to wipe that stain from-his scutcheon. Welsh also calls 'attention to his achievements of the last: few months, during which; time he. defeated Matt Wells and Hughey Mehegan, cbam-. pions of England and Australia re-1 spectively, and -points-.,out that ore-' cedent and rin?; etiquette de'n and that Ritchie should he the challenger. I believe Ritchie would .welcome a return match with;. Welsh; It was only bv the narrowest of m^r^ins that Freddy scored on the mother occasion and Willie was. hardly more than a beginner at the ''time. Now that he has won his spurs and pained the experience and confidence that goes with a.title, he is an entirely different proposition, as the- clever Welsh may learn to-his sorrow.

There should not be more than two series In "Winnipeg for the cup and �with the play-off-system among the challengers, the matches will be between the strongest clubs in the country,. After a hard, .season to get possession or retain it. of the Allan Cup, the world's champions should not be called to do more than this. i LCTHBRJDQB 'MARKET* Elevator Prices No. 1 Northern ........ 66 No 2 Northern 63 ... 58 63 ' � . .., 65 . ...

ERNIE BARRIEAU LOST'ON A DOUBTFUL DECISION Ooq.uitlam, B.C., Feb. 7.-Charley Rellly, the San Francisco lightweight, was awarded the decision over Ernie BaTrieau, of Vancouver, here tonight, after six rounds of fast milling. A large number of fans thought Reilly was not entitled to the award, claim- ing that the -worst Barrieau should have got was a draw. R^iJJy.had considerably the better of the first two rounds, but in the last-four Barrieau put up a great fight, and at the end was much stronger than his opponent. The fine display of Scott Duncan, substituting Jack Rutherford, was the talk of the ground in the Newcastle and Oldham match.

However much Mr. Magrath's absence was felt, nevertheless- a tme henchman of-his, in the -person of ->yr old friend "Doc" Stewart, was there to fill his place, and no one, however hard he tried, could have put the boys in a happier vein than did "Doc." In making the presentation of the shield to President Wan-less, of the Overseas-club, the: doctor stated; that it gave him the' greatest possible pleasure to be amongst the boys last night, and hoped he would be at a good many pf their future gatherings: He went on to remark that, while only one team could be successful, in winning the trophy each year, yet he wasvglad to know that the members of the less successful clubs were there last night, which showed that they were all true sportsmen. "Apart from winning anything," remarked the doctor, "football is a great game to stimulate that healthy vigor which is the making of mankind." (Applause). The doctor remarked that he would like to see athletics compulsory , in . our public] schools, and ventured to remark that if they were, there would be less specialising by doctors. In his concluding remarks he congratulated the members of the winning club, and hoped they would be successful next year. "But perhaps," added the doctor,, "you may not win." President Wanless, in accepting' the trophy on behalf of the club; said thai, it gave him -the greatest, pleasure,of his life, to be where.he wfis last night, for during the season of 1912, the whole of the team had worked in harmony togetheri and the reward they were now receiving waB worth more than all the trouble they had had.
