' FORFeiHEllSH Montreal, March 27.-Freddie Welsh, in a ten-round exhibition bout at Sohmar Park last night, showed the members of the Canadian Athletic club that Max Lustig, of New York, is not in his class. Welsh had the bout on ice in all but a moment in the eighth round, when Lustig caught him in a corner of the ring and they fought toe to toe. The champion worked and began left-hoolfing in a way that staggered Lustig, who clinched to avoid punishment. Lustig landed scarcely a dozen times through the light, while Welsh landed almost at will. Sporting writers say that the fighting was mteresting only in the fact that the world's champion was giving another fighter a boxing lesson.

Pugilistic Championships Not Decided on Sundays Havana, Cuba, March 27.-Havana "was engrossed today in dlBCUssiou of, the hlgr fight to be staged here on Monday, April 5, when Jack Johnson will defend his title as heavyweight cham-ipiou against Jess Willard. It was j-emln'lBcoiit of the scenes in Reno five years ago,' before the battle in.which Johnson"'lowered the colors of Jim Jeffries and thereby established his right to the heavyweight iitle. There were countless rumors and reports following a midnight conference of all those concerned in the fight, and' then came the anno.unce-ment of the postponement of the battle to Monday, Sunday haying been Bet as the date originally. Opposition to Sabbath Date The postponement .was due to the great pressure brought .to bear,upon the-government officials by many persons, who 'declared tliat to. hold the fight on April 4 would be to desecrate Easter Sunday. There was a surprising sentiment in Cuba against the holding of the fight on Sunday, despite the fact that the lirst day of the week is a general holiday on the Island. Objection also was raised by/influential citizens in the itlnlted States. Wllliam.E. Gonzales; minister from, the United States to C.uba, and President Menocal of Cuba tece.lyed  some six hundred cable dispatches and telegraniB protesting ag-ai^�i(:ftie^hdjding.�f the ^ght on Easter Sunday. , . , ' . President Menocal decided to interfere, and requested the promoters to select another date. Both Willard and Johnson eagerly seconded .the idea of postponing the batfJe; Tiie pugilists exhibited many letters "from fight laris requestiiig a postponement from Sunday to.a week da,v. Salat Already Reach $55,000 It is understood that the promoters' 'books tonight showed sales and reservations for the fight amounting to $55,-000, and that these are increasing steadily. Several women society lead era hayi engaged bbxos at the ring side. ,Reservation have been made Jrom New Orleans, Galveston,, and a dispatch '^as received stating that the first special party of 86 was sailing from New Orleans tonight. j The pugi'Jiats had a still workout today in the' presence of good-sized crowds. 'The challenger roughed his partners fiercely. He i)roke Walter Mona.han's iiose; a bo.ut with Hemphill was stopped near the knockout point, and ^Jim Savage was exhausted ty the rough-work. If the promoters ot the Johnson-Willard heavyweight championship bout bad adhered to .their apnounce-mcnt to hold the cohtcst on ISaster Day, April i, it would have been' the /irst time, that a ring match ol this calibre had been held on a Sunday. Championship bouts in many classes have been held on holidays in all parts of America and Europe, but pugilists and promoters have heretofore confined their ring activities to days other than tlie Sabbath. Johnson won final recognition as the world's champion by defeatiilg Jellries at Reno, Nev., on the 4th of July, 1910 ; Bob Kitzsimmons won the heavyweight title from Jim Cor-bett at Carson City, Nev., on St. Patrick's Day, 1897 ; Jack Johnson gained his first claim to champion--ship honors by defeating Tommy Burns at Sydney, N.S.W., on Dec. 26, 1908, which is known as Bo/cing Day throughout the - British empitc: Because of the difierencct in time,thc result of this battle was .known throughout the United States on the preceding day-Christma*. In other weight classes holiday bouts in which championships changed are numerous. Young Corbett's victory over Terry McGovern was won on Thankggiying '.Day ; Battling Welson lost his lightweight title to Ad Wolgast on Wash-ingtbn's birthday, 1910, and the list might be continued almost indefinitc-Ij-- Sporting events oi various kinds are held on Sunday in Central and South America and Continental Europe, but ! aside from basketball, bicycle racing, ! track and field athletics and assooia-jtion football games. Sabbath sports have never been popular in the Unlt>-ed States. In Mexico, Cuba and South America, bull fights, cocking 'mains and minor sports are or were held on the first day of the week. In Europe several classic turf events, including the French Grand Prix, are always scheduled for Sunday. Ring records show that few bouts ot importance have been held abroad on Sunday and American tabulations show an equal scarcity in this re-^ spect. Where they have been held on Sunday the contests were those ot ! the early periods ot pugilism and the {selection of the day due to police activity, which upset the plans of the promoters. Such a case was the Jack Dempsey-George La Blanche battle, held on a barge in Long Island Sound early Sunday morning, March 14, iim. ram ANENIS..S.WHLETICLEAGyE MEET London, March 27.:^Following are the results of today's scheduled League football games, played on the grounds of the first-named cliibs: FJrat Dlvl�ion Bradford 2, Middlesborough 0.

When a boy fails on his third trial at any height he is declared t)u't of the testpanu IS givfen credit" for the last height which he cleared! Knocking down the bar is counted as a trial. Running ander the bar is couhted as a "balk." Three balks are counted as-a trial. The boy maj' run any distance alhd from any direction beforie making his jump. The height at each jump is mcasurr ed by holding tlic free end of the tape so that it just touches the ground directly beneath the centre of the bar, and reading the height on the upper side of the bar or stick.

BATTERY SILENCED �There was a battle at the exhibition grounds Saturday-no sham battle cither-a red hot soccer tilt in which the battery doys and the prison guards locked horn-s. The battery came oft' victorious by three goals to one. It was the deterred clash billed for Thursday evening in which the guards accused the battery ot piking out ot the issue. The batiery boys are not inclined to pike out of anything and the reason they were unable to meet the guards oh Thursday was through the interference'of the bivouac order of last week. The battery boys entered the tray Saturday smarting under false accusation and were determined to show the guards where they get on at and off at and they succeeded. However, the guards were not "pie" for the furious shot and shell dispensers and during the course ot action they were made to feel'that they had "some" proposition on their hands. , The game was full ot ginger and exciting from beginning to end.
