Champion and Carpentier
jSay They Slept Well I
and Are Feeling Fine
Jack Dempsev started for the arena
at 2:3f> p. m. yesterday and was at?
tended most of the waj by a cheering
crowd. Almost no one recognized him,
however, as he entered the arena at
one of the Fremont Street gates at
2:40. most of the crowd outside ex?
pecting him to arrive on the Mont?
gomery Street side of the inclosure.
When he got inside Dempsey became
confused and was on his way to Car?
pentier's dressing rooms, when an
usher overtook him and informed him
of his mistake. A similar error was
made by Carpentier when he entered
Both Dempsey and Carpentier awoke
in the best of spirits, according to all
the indications, ami looked forward to
an entertaining day.
Carpentier Feels Fine
It was 7:45 a. m. when Carpentier
came out of his training quarters at
Manhasset on the run. He pot up at
6:45 and had a light breakfast at 7
o'clock. He seemeel surprised to lind
reporters waiting for him.
"I've had a good sleep and feel fine,"
Accompanied by Gus Wilson, Pierre
Mallette and his police dog, Felipe,
Carpentier started off on a short hike,
pulling his truosers high and capering
about as he set out, to display his red
and white checkered socks.
It was about 9:30 wrhen they got
back, the three men walking arm in
arm and singing "Hail, Hail, the
Gang's All Here." After a brisk rub
down Carpentier read the newspapers
and then changed his clothes for the
trip to Jersey City, which he made in
the yacht Lone Star. The original in?
tention was not to start until after
lunch, but the weather was so threat?
ening that the plan was changed and
luncheon was served aboard the yacht
which made a leisurly trip to Jersey
Jack in Fine Fettle
Dempsey and his party reached Jer?
sey City at 5:17 p. m., Friday, and
went to the home of William Heppen
heimer, at Montgomery Street anel Jer?
sey Avenue, where they were guests
for the night. Dempsey turned in at
10 o'clock and woke up at 7.
"I never felt better in my life," he
said, as he sat down to a light break?
Like Carentier, Dempsey started out
for a short after-breakfast walk, but
the crowd which kept at his heels grew
so large that he gave it up and went
back to the house, where he set a
phonograph going and then played a
He was first at the table at luncheon
and was helped liberally to steak, po?
tatoes, string beans and toast and con
sumeel an entire pot of tea. After
lunch he went to his room for a short
nap before starting for the arena.
Dempsey, before the fight, had
planned to have a "blow-out" in the
evening at the Hotel Belmont and had
invited several of his friends, includ?
ing Mayor Bader, of Atlantic City, to
be his guests. Dempsey was modestly
dubious concerning the part he might
be able to play in this gustatory cele?
bration, but he was determined it
should take place, whatever the out?
come of the fight.
"It all depends on how the old jaw
stands the racket," he said, stroking
the massive pediment of his features at
which it was prophesied Carpentier
would aim his heaviest blows.
Mrs. Mae Brown, of Chicago, who
used to be Dempsey's landlady and
"trusted" him for more than one week's
board when his pickings in the fight
game were lean, came on for the fight
and brought with her two pairs of
white silk trunks anel a red, white and
blue belt, which she had made herself.
Dempsey selected one of the pairs of
trunks to wear in the fight and said
that he'd wear the belt, too. if Mrs.
Brown would take off the rosette,
which he regarded as an unnecessary
bit of trimming, and lengthen the belt
so-that it could bo tied instead of de?
pending upon the hooks anel eyes
which Mrs. Brown, woman-wise, had
sewed on for fastenings.
It lacked only three minutes of 2
o'clock when the Lone Star, which had
loafed all the way from Port Washing?
ton, put in at a Jersey City pier with
? Carpentier and his party aboard. Half
a elo;:en motorcycle policemen were
waiting for them and acted as escort
to the arena.
Somehow Carpentier got separated
from his friends and from the police?
men after they reached the vicinity of
the arena. When the others got in?
side they missed the challenger, nor
was he to be found anywhere in the in?
closure. Scouts were dispatched and
found the Frenchman roaming about
Boyle's Thirty Acres in bewildered
fashion, seeking in Franco-American to
discover from persons he encountered
how one got into the arena.
Only nine of the spectators recog?
nized the tall figure in the light suit
as that of Georges Carpentier, but they
raised a valiant though meagre cheer.

iy "It's JUiit as 1 expected," declared

fight a moment after it was flashed

"Some day." continued the smiling
father, "some one is going to heat Jack,
but that day has not arrived. I ex?

Painters Cut Own Wages
Reduction of Six Cents an Hour
Announced in Utica
Spcc:al Vitpalck to The Tribune
UTICA, .July -'. Members of the
painters' union here voluntarily have
cut their pay six cents an hour, effect
!V.? Tuesday. The action was an?
nounced at a meeting of the painters
and representatives of contractors
' emnloving union help.
The' new scale calls for 85 cents an
hour, instead of 91, for painters, nnd
90, instead of Oti, fot??, paper-hangers.
' The union statement said this was a
fair reduction and called attention to
the fact that the painters had been the ;
most poorly paid of any of the build?
ing trade. They also noted that theirs '
Hits a seasonal occupation.
The wage reductions made by the
men constitute about one-half of the ?

Is French Tribute to Fighter
Carpentier Smiled and Kept on Smiling When Power
of Muehine-Like Forman Crushed
Him to Defeat
By James Hopper
Among the spectators at the ringside
1 believe that is the consecrated
phrase was Monsieur Andr? F?nfter,
"pilote aviateur" and "r?dacteur sportif
au Progr?s de Lyon." All this, which
1 found on the visiting card he gave
me, means that he was, during; the war,
an aviator, and that he is now sport?
ing editor of the Progr?s de Lyon,
which is a daily newspaper published
in the city of Lyons, France. As in
Prance there is really only ono city
that counts- aiul that is Paris I sup
poso we are not very far wrong or in?
sulting in saying that Monsieur Andr?
Fanper is slightly provincial.
Well, Monsieur Andr? Fanger had
landed this very morning in America.
From the clocks he had crossed dire.iiy
to Jersey City and to the arena so in?
adequately known as Boyle's Thirty
Acres. He had seen of America only
the New York docks, the Jersey City
railroad yards, the arena, and about
five rather dreary preliminary bouts.
Then, to the suelden awakening of the
huge human howl in a clear acclaim, he
saw France step upon the white ring in
the person of its statuesque and frail
champion. And immediately it was

erful gladiator, black-thatched and
Frenchman's View of Fight
Afterward, when everything was fini,
I saw the French journalist again. He
was sitting in the press stand and
leaning across the rough desn, was
looking far, far away. So I crossed
over to see what he thought of it all.
On his desk, all written in nice, clear,
longhand was his little story, all ready
to go o<r to Lvons par telegraohic sans
Now, he did not look at all like a
writer. He. was stout and strong, with
hair cropped short and that brick-red
complexion often 3een in the region of
France from which he comes, where
they have lots and lots of good old
Burgundy. But you know, as I have
said before, and as I repeat now being
a very stubborn person
"You never can tell what a French?
man will do."
I asked him what he thought of the
fight, and in return he gave me his
little story, lying there already for
the wireless which, on the wing of
invisible sparks, was to send it to
France. And here was the whole thing
?what had happened, ?told so aptly, and
briefly and with such measure, noth?
ing too much and nothing too little,
and yet so completely that I promptly
swiped it, deciding that the journalist
from Lyons, France, had said it ever 80
much better than I, no matter with
what effort, could say it.
"Carpentier," this was his first sent?
ence, "was conquered by La Puissance."
Do you know that word, Puissance?
It means power, and strength, and en?
ergy, endurance and iron ruggednes-,
all rolled up in one.
"The Frenchman," M. Andr? went on,
?"fought a most courageous battle. He
? attacked and attacked ceaselessly, seek
? ing to 'impose himself upon his oppo
! nent. And in the second round he al
? most snatched victory from the fates,
? from the rude, material law. Victory
i for a moment was before him, hanging
| by a thread.
"But he was pitted against a most
powerful and admirable fighter, a rn-in
who, although seeming to move slowly,
moved all of the time and always for?
ward. As long as the Frenchman boxed,
sending in his lightning like blows
from a distance, he rather had the ad?
vantage. But in the in-fighting, the
powerful American, shaking him off
punished him severely. And after thai
second round, When Carpentier almost
j performed the impossible, I merely
i awaited the knock out which I knew
I must come."
There it all is, I think, and said with
For the French champion, frail ant
f physically outclassed, fought a super):
| battle. And when at the end he laj

i could not, there feil upon the vas
arena something like a stupor. Tin
silence that comes to men who hav<
witnessed something magnificent be
yond the gift of expression, and whicl
they will never forget.
When first he came on to the ringoc
platform he looked pale and drawn

I more apparent than ever before.
Carpentier Had the Smile
But he smiled. As they say it
French, "he had the smile." Tha
strange half enigmatic smile whicl
used to puzzle us whenever we saw bin
in his workouts at his training quar
ters. And he continued to have i
throughout the desperate duel; had i
at its most despairing moment; wen
down with it and, I fancy that, evei
i as he lay on the canvas, unconscious

j It was the smile which a dauntles"
? heart has for the forlorn hope. Th
: smile, half of contempt, with whicl
: once faces the conspiracy of matter.

And there was a moment where his
fury had almost upset the laws of
Matter. In (ho-second round his long
rapier-like blow found Dempsey squar?
ely, and the giant rocker anel racked
with glazed eye?, profoundly shaken
physically and mentally.
But Carpentier, already sapped by
the infighting of the first round, could
not. quite finish. The hell gave the
champion respite, and Carpentier,
though once more he attacked at. the
beginning of tho third round, was
never abio again to muster all of his
nervous force in a burst equal to that,
which, in the second, had placed him
but the thickness of a clown's tissue
paper hoop from success.
Meanwhile the champion, moving ever
forward, slowly but relentlcsslv. was
gradually killing the brilliant French?
man. He was like a bear in the clinches,
lenning his whole weight upon the
slighter man, shaking himself sav?
agely loose and, in close, driving his
lists in like the stamps of a mill crush?
The first eloquent sign I had of the
coming end was when I saw in one of
those clinches Carpentier's both hands
seize Dempsey's fist, not in n boxing
parry, but as one, with both hands,
grasps a dagger which has sunk deep
in one's very vitals.
Rickard Makes $500,000
As Promoter of Battle
Expects Dempsey to Fight Again
Lahor Day, Though Oppo?
nent Is Hard to Find
Tex Rickard, promoter of yesterday's
heavyweight championship battle, said
last night that according to incomplete
returns his individual share in the re?
ceipts would be somewhere between
$500,000 and $000,000. He added that
he had twenty men still figuring up
the gate money and that his own actual
profits might not be known definitely
The aggregate proceeds of the fight,
Rickard said, would probably be in
excess of $1,500,000.
Two more championship bouts are
bring arranged for the near future,
Rickard said. One has been tentative?
ly set for the end of this month and
the other for Labor Day. Jack Demp?
sey is expected to be one of the prin?
cipals in the latter engagement.
"Finding a suitable opponent for
Dempsey presents a difficult problem,"
Mr. Rickard said. "The only logical
man at the present time is Jess Wil
lard, bul I doubt whether he could be
induced to enter the ring again.
"The next championship battle here?
abouts will probably involve the light?
weight title, bringing together Benny
Leonard and a man of the caliber to
give him a real fight."
Rickard denied last night that any
money in his possession belonging to

Betting at Ring Light,
With Jack Big Favorite !
What wagering was done at j
the ringside just before the fight
marked Dempsey a fop-heavy
favorite, but Carpentier sup- j
porters were- satisfied with a
price of 2 to 1 for their money.
Their was considerable betting
at the ringside, though the
volume of last-minute wagering
did not begin to approximate the
customary amount in ring battles j
of such pretension. It was plain- i
ly evident tnat there had been a
I great switch of sentiment toward
