Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD Thursday. September ii, HU2 ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST F.VENT1 Bayley Completely Outclassed Allen Ottawa Boy Never Had a Look-in With Victoria Scrapper-Two Clergyman Among the Spectators Calgary, Sept. Bay ley is now tho undoubted lightweight cham- pion of Canada and at noon today he scored a knockout over Billy Allen. uf Ottawa, from whom he won the. title at Bassano in June and who to- day had his chance again at the title. Two vicious- right swings to tie stomach turned the trick in the third round and Billy Alien went down, first to his knees and then to his fcack. He was beaten. A! Green- his second, realized this and jumped into the ring. Technically, .tks ended the bout, so Tomuy Bums nof- count him but, but there was noJchaRce for Allen to get up and contijGiie. ETCH after his seconds had raised him, Billy seemed-badly dazed but m 3 couple of minutes he was lating Barley. Allen did not put up the fight tliat be did at Bassano in the last battle agaiusi Bayley, but the little Vie- Torian champion fought like a demon, atut. there was no time during ihe three rounds that Allen seemed to hare a chance. The large crarcsi at the arena show- ed the popularity of the boxers, aad the decision announced the fans fairly ive-at wild. It was plain- ly seen that Bayley was favorite, but great deal of respect -was for tie .el-champion and Ottawa bor. Bayiey can now claim the champion- ship, and there can be no dispute, :or the "woa entirely on the iserits of the western boy. Bayley raised on the shoulders of his ad- mirers and carried from the rins to the dressing room. He showed that he the proudest-boy in the city. Tommy Burns acted an reieiee, and his work was favorable. Very few expected the bout to be so short, but the hard blows administered by Bar- ley in the second seemed to wear Al- len down, and wben he took his seat ia the comer before the third and last round it was plainly seen that he suffering. He started into the third round, however, hard, but soon Barley landed the taps that fee was alter, and it proved Allen's fate. Al- len showed that be was came to the core, but there is little doubt but that be usel a better man when he ran up against Bayley. The doors of the arena were open- ed at 9.30 o'clock and the crowd started in with a rush, the bleachers filling quickly. The sun came out, giving those in upper seats a fins viev of the Rockies- The moving pic- ture machines were installed on tbe south side of the ring. The spectat- ors had considerable trouble in get- ting to tbe grounds, although there were six special street cara in opera- tion. Automobiles commanded practical- ly any price the drivers wished to charge, even then hundreds were un- able to get to the grounds. At 11 o'clock, when the attendance about Burns en- tered the ring and requested that good order be preserved. Kid Bnyd. of Los Angeles, and Jack Tyidsley, of Edmonton, were introduced as tlie principals in the first preliminary- They were featherweights. Tommy Burns announced that he would icf- erce all contests himself And the De- cision would be given according to Marquis of Queeiisbury rules. In the crowd two clergymen iu uni- form were noticed and many rftht fans from every part of the Tbe mounted police gave strict cr- ders that there was to be ntt belling" and stated that they would urrest anyone who violated their Round sparred. Bayley hooked to the head, and Allen led with the right. Bayley put two rights to the kidneys. Alien swung a right to the head. Al- len rushed oa Bayley with a stiff right and Bayley met him with a right to the body. They clinched. Bayley got two rights to the face, one being blocked. AHen rushed with three left swings, Bayley jabbed a right to the face. Allen put a left to the body, and Bayley missed a right swing. Al- len led right and left swings, but they were blocked. Joe put a swift right to tie body, and the bell rang. It was Bayley's round by a shatle. Round Two Alien covered, while Bayley tried to get under his guard, and got three rights to the body. Allen uncovered Trith to the face, and shot ever a right nppercut. Allen swung two rights to tbe shoulder, and Bayley gave him right to the stomach, as he mshed. They exchanged rights and lefts to the face, and 'Bayley mlse- ed an uppercut, Bayley was warned for not breaking clean. Alten swung right and left to the head and another left to the face. In close, Bayley put a right to the stomach and again to the face, and they traded short jabs. Bayley "was. again warned for not step- pine; hack In the' break. This was Bayley's round by a shade. Round I'hree After this round Allen seemed to be siiafeen. up, and did not show the speed that be had at Bassano. There was some ineffectual infight- ing, and Allen gave right and left swings to the head, Bayley ramming right to the stomach. Bayley was playing for Allen's bcdy, and rushed nim to the ropes, Billy returning sev- eral lefts to the face. They traded straight rights and Allen swung two lefts and an uppsrcut tc the face. They infight and Bayley sent in two hard rights. In close Bayley puts rwo hard rights to the body. Alren drops to his knees and then to his back, and is counted out. Fight over. KILBANE WON Xew York, Sept. Kil- bane, of Cleveland, holder of the fea- therweight title, easily outpointed Johnnv Dundee in a ten-round bout here tonight. Dundee rushed itorn the start but was met unvaryingly with left jabs to the face that ren- derR.1 his efforts futile- At no time did Dundee have an advantage while Kilbane apparently did not at any time extend himself, easily outpoint- ing his opponent. Abe Attell was in- troduced at the ringside and issued a chalicngr trie winner.

Thlt wa> the official announcement a'v- en out to the Herald thi> morning. GOINGTO BATTLE AGAIN Managoff and Taylor to Wrestle to a Finish-An Answer to Ellison Jack Taylor announced to the Herald last night that he had been retained to appear against Bob Managot, for'a finish bout, two out o fthrea falls, at the Morrlt theatre next Wednesday evening. "I recognize what 1 will be up against when 1 tackle Managoff in this way and 1 credit him, with ability equal -to his reputation every bit, but at that I.think that I have more staying power "than he has and all kinds of confidence that I can beat laid Taylor. Managoff called at the Herald office this morning flashing a check for which he is ready to bet that he can beat Taylor. In regard to the challenge that appeared In Herald day from Jack Ellison, who has a protege whom he anxious to up against Taylor, the local man had the to say: "Let Ellison post his money, any- thing from 5100 to and I will be ready to cover it and meet his man Bermotz at any time or place.

BRITAIN AGAIN EXPLAINS WHY Its Athletes Fared So Badly at Olympic Games London, Sopt. failure of Great iJritaiu to secure better re- sults at the Olympic games at SloeU- hotm is explained today in the report oi the British Olympic commit ten which says: "It was not meru spe- lization which eiuibletl Sweden ami tiro United States to do bettor than the IJritish Empire. The only win- ner of three gold medals eamo frnm Kinhuid. The I'eutlialon and the cathlon were won by an American who showed quite extraordinary all- round ability. Sweden won all the points in the modern Penthalon and obtained more points than any other nation in the whole n[ the games by sedulously cultivating, every form ut physical ability possessed by her in- habitants, and her strength and ca- pacity as a nation have been uaor- mously increased in the process." The lack Of serious interest in the ;ames on the part of the British pub- lic is declared by the public to have greatly affected the enthusiasm of the British competitors. Owing to want of funds these also were de- prived of for training under trainers acquainted with the best scientific methods. It rests with the British public, says the report, whether this state of things shall be remedied in the future. The Standings National New York...... Chicago....... Pittsburg......

September '21 is the date selected for Ad and Pnckay to mingle. Johnny Kllbano lmn been mirsimdod to visit New York somu time next month, when ho.'ll give Johnny Dundee the chance lonjj hankered for. The day and date for this racket have not yet been assigned, Johnny Co u I on Will Box Eh'en the very UUIe fellows have not been alighted in arranging the plans for the boxing carnival, Jolnmy Coulou has promised to -box hero whenever the promoters Jiiul him an opponent and come through with the "sugar." Johnny is only a little fel- low, but 1ms big ideas when it comes to appraising his services. Kid Will- iams, the. Baltimore whirlwind, who has been trimming all the'little fel- lows around here, may be the first to tackle the Chicago fighter. Will- iams is the coming bantam champion, so iho wiseacres predict. He knocked out Young Solsberg recently, some- thing Coulon could not accomplish. All of which added to the intense rivalry existing; between the two big local clubs, and the prospects lhat several new organizations will enter the field this fall assure Yorkers an abundance of high-class fistic en- tertainment for some time to come. If It is found necessary the foreign fields will 'be invaded and the best talent imported. Wil Be Classy Bout. As a purely sporting proposition the Me Far land-Wolgast mill Is the class, Ad Wolgast will draw something like for boxing Packey McFarland; also a slice of the picture money. The Garden magnates had to come through iberally. Manager Gibson had dreams of losing prestige as Gotham's lea-d- ing matchmaker, so he took the limit. off and bet them high. Ad has the worst of the bargain in the matter of weight. The article; say the boys 'must hop on the scale at aEturnopn, the weight at that hour to be 135 pounds. Pretty soft for Packey. The champion is a legit! mate 133-pouud'er. In fact, he can do a couple less and still be good, and it would appear that in this match he has handicapped himself a bit. Me- Farlcnd should weigh around J3S at post time, and he's a bear when not trained down too flue. But that 500 la a lot of money for 30 minutes' 'work and Ad is -willing to take the worst of the weight to get his rnitts on that big bundle. May Cause Trouble With Manager It may be the match will cause a split in the relations .existing between Wolgast and Manager Tom Jon-es. It is said Jones objected strenuously, as he helieves the champion needs more time to recuperate from th-a ill effects of that appendicitis operation and the and wear and tear of training for the Rivers bout. Ad's work In the Rivers engagement did not overptease his admirers, and Jones holds the view that if the champion could do no better than win a questionable vic- tory over the Mexican, a youth of comparative inexperience, it is absurd to hope for a decent showing in a limited bout with the Wizard Packey. Ad. though, entertains a-different opin- ion, .and believes he can 'beat McFar- land under any old conditions. He is ii kid, anyway, and then it would be little short of criminal to pass up that.S22.oOO.
