FOR CHAMPIONSHIP Toronto, Feb. 21.-The dope proved true and Midland's aspiration for the O.H.A. championship title were buried hero last night by the speedy St. Michael's septette by a score, of 5-2.

WOLGAST SAYS RITCHIE DOUBLE-CROSSED HIM Willie Admits He Did With Hard Rights and Lefts to Ad's Jaw New York, Feb. 21,-Published charges by Ad Wolgast that he was "double-crossed" by WilUo Ritchie, lightweight champion, in their foui> round contest In San Francisco last May, may cost the former champion the privilege of meeting the champion on July 4. Ritchie grinned when asked today for an answer to Wolgast's charges. "It's too absurd to answer," replied Winfe. "The only time I ever 'double crossed' was when I ripped a hMd right and left to his jaiw. That sort of talk 13 all bosh." Ritchie said he would likei to give Wolgast a return match, but add�d It was extremely probable now that h'e would give either Joe Rivers or Packey MoFarland the first chanc?\, meeting �ither ol the t�'o on July 4. Ritchie win laarc New York on Friday for Detroit. LUTHER McCARTY SF�MS JO BE AFRAID OF WELLS New York, Feb. 20.-Is Liuther Mo-Carty, who" holds the McCarty white hopC'championship belt, afraid to try conclusions with Bombardier Wells, the British heavyweight title holder? Wells arrived here recently for the purpose of bosing 10 rounds with Mo-Cartjt in the Garden. The Briton accepted the Garden A. C. terms and Manager Gibson sent a wire to Mc-Carty,'s manager, \Villiam> McCarney, to talk it over. McCamey conlerred wi^ Gi|>son here last, week, but would not agree to' several eminently fair propositions. McCamey in the first place demanded 40 per cent, of the gross receipts. The Garden A. C. owing to the importance of the match agreed to stretch the usual guarantee to 55 per cent, of the gross receipts. Wells accepted an offer of 23 per cent, without a protest, but when McCamey said he wanted 40 per cent., Gibson turned him down. GiibiBon stated thair] Mcuariy could have 30 per cent, after McCamey admitted thait he be-believed the bout would draw; more than $40,000. But McCarty's mana'gpD refused to accept.

The price that Induced McAllister to enter the professional ranks was $1750. Among the little fellows there are no George .Dixons.
