RINGSIDE, JERSEY CITY, July
I.?Broken, crushed, bleeding, striving
convulsively to make his horrfMy
punished body obey the comBiAi\d
of his dauntless will, Georges
Carpentier struggled on the canvas
in the middle of the fourth round,
gasping with agony while the referee
tolled the fateful ten which
marked the pugilistic passing of
the idol of France. Carpentier was
outclassed from start to finish and
he put up a fight against unsurmountable
odds that will leave his
memory one of bright and galfant
courage In the hearts of the more
than 90,000 people who saw him go
to defeat at the hands of Dempsey.
the invincible champion of all
champions. After being horribly
beaten and apparently knocked ,
helpless In the first round the
courageous fighter came back and1
then in the second round staged a
rally which brought the great!
crowd to its feet screaming vrith i
excitement. He knocked the chani- i
pion with rights to the jaw and
had him groggy. There was aj
period in the famous second round i
when the Frenchman might have
flattened his foe had he had the
stamina to follow up the advantage
he had gained. Dempsey*#
terrible blows in the first round hail
so weakened him that he was unable
to finish the champion after!
stunning him. This was Carpenter's
When the men stepped In the
ring there was a moment of silence ;
and then a gasp from the crowd, j
It was a gasp of sympathy and j
amazement at the apparent frailityj
of the slim Frenchman in such 1
pitiable contrast with the ferocious I
bulk of the champion.
When they squared off in the first
round Carpentier got his .left to the
Jaw. They clinched. At the break j
Carpentier tried two rights for the j
Jaw. It was ap^rent that the
Frenchman meant to make a toe-to- j
toe flght of it. rather than using his
vaunted speed to run away.
Dempsey punched him terribly In I
the clinches, shooting solid rights;
and lef's to the body and face. The
Fre^nch.nan was like a toy in the '
champion's hands when they came
to close quarters. Dempsey caught :
Carpentier with a fierce left hook '
to the face and blood spurted from I
the challenger's nose. A right to |
the jaw knocked Carpentier half |
through the ropes. They were
clinched at the bell, and Dempsey :
was punishing the Frenchman 1
furiously and only the bell saved !
him from a knockout. Carpentier!
staggered to his corner, apparently j
a beaten man. Descamps. chatter- j
ing with excitement, worked over!
him during the intermission and
poured advice Into his ears. The |
crowd believed Carpentier would be i
unable to last the first minute of j
the second round. It seemed im- 1
possible that he could rally after !
the punishment he had received. At ,
the beginning of the second round j
Carpentier came from his corner!
and instead of covering up and trying
to keep away he electrified the
crowd by tearing into the champion !
and rocking him with deadly rights'
to the jaw. Dempsey clinched and !
held on. At the break the Frenchman
again reached Dempsey's jaw
with heavy rights and again Demp- '
sey clinched. Again at the break |
Carpentier went after Dempsey. but j
he had shot his bolt. He was weary .
and reeling from the punishment
^at he had received and from the \
fatigue of his own efforts in the
Dempsey resumed the offensive j
working in close and punching Car- I
rentier in the face and body in
the- clinches. The Frenchman was i
like a child in the champion's grasp.
It was a brave and pitiful sight. At I
the end of the round the Frenchman
staggered to his corner, bleed-I
ing from a cut in his left cheek and
from the nose. The end came a I
minute and sixteen seconds after
the beginning of the fourth round.
Carpentier was gasping for breath,
h4s legs were shaking, his chest
hoaving convulsively and his eyes
wild with agony. A terrific right
hook to the jaw sent him crashing
to the canvas. He was cool in his !
agony. He took the count of nine and j
forced himself to his feet. They
clinched. eDmpsey fought him I
loose and as the Frenchman fell
fairly away from the clinch, hooked
him another fearful right to the
jaw. The champion fell to the mat
on his face. Nothing was left to him
but the will to rise and fight again.
While the referee tolled off the
fateful seconds, the Frenchman,
with his face in the rosin, struggled
to force himself to his feet. The
tortured, beaten bodv writhed and
jerked at the direction of the brain
that bade it rise. Further effort
was beyond him.
Tho crowd was quiet. The voice
of the referee was clearly audible as
it spoke the numerals that marked
the end of the idol of France. "Six,
seven, eight." Carpentiers slim,
beautiful body writhed on the canvas
like that of a man wounded to
death. At the count of ten he fought
gallantly to regain his feet and continue
the hopeless battle, but it was
beyond his power. He was out, unconscious.
It was only instinct that
was moving him. "Eight, nine,"
Dempsey standing near and watching
his fallen foe with an expression
of sincere sympathy on his
ordinarily fierce face, turned away.
"Ten. that was the end. But the
Frenchman did not hear the word
m*r marked the end of his dreams.
He still writhed and struggled on
the .mat attempting to rise. Harry
Kctle. the referee, turned to Dempsey
and touched his arm. The "hatfle
of the century" i? history.
$rawn had triumphed, not over
brain, because the champion fought,
rf anything, a more heady battle
Mian Carpentier, but it had triumphed
over a lesser brawn. The
saying that a good big man will
alUys beat a good little man was
again proven true. The Frenchman
HaiT proved tha* he was no joke
fighter but he had also proved that
ijo#\nysterious power of will, no
tj-ickk of hypnotism and no degree .>t
t|igh courage can avail against the
afteer physical power and ferocity
such a fighter an Dempsey.
* Dempsey is champion of the world
Vd Carp curler is a broken idol
IJut. one imagines that the champion
in his victory has nothing but
sympathy for the foe he crushed.
One imagines, too. that Dempsey

nd Round, Did Carpenr
Victory, and Then
cr?wn the glory and the wealth
that go with its possession to have
the ovation that 91.000 American*
refused their own countryman.
When CJeorge Humphreys, the announcer.
introduced Demosey there
was a scattered bit of cheering that
did not last ten seconds. When
Carpentler was Introduced the great
crowd rose to its feet and cheered
wildly for more than a minuts.
It was a patent rebuke to the
champion. It told him that while
he might win honors and wealth
with his rowerful lists he could not
gain what was freely given the
challenger, the good will and heartfelt
admiration of the thoroughly
representative crowd of more than
90.000 people. The ovation given
the Frenchman, after the cold reception
accorded Dempsey, cut the
champion to the heart. As the
crowd cheered the challenger Dempsey
scowled and winced to the pain
of the thrust, twisting about uneasily
in his chair and scowling
mournfully at the floor. Even as
the victor In what is perhaps the
greatest sporting event in the history
of modern times he was not
the recipient of long or hearty
cheering. Those who sat at the
ringside will always, however, carry
in their minds a good opinion of the
sincere manliness and sportsmanwhip
of the unpopular champion, no
matter what their opinion of his
war record may be. He exhibite-1
no sign of exultation in his victory
except a boyish nmile and the sm.le
was not in evidence until he had
helped carry Carnentier to his cnair
and been assured that his foe waa
on the way to recovery.
His first act after his victory waa
to shake hands with the man who
he had defeated, and his first utterance
after the battle was a sincere
praise of Carpentler. When he
returned to hla corner at the finish
"f "*e fight, he leaned over the ropea
and with a shake of his hear said
to some newspaper friends: "He's
a mighty tough boy; a good boy.'
It was just a few minutes befora
3 o'clock when Carpentler entered
he ring and every seat in the huge
stadium was filled. The mighty motion
of the vast crowd rising to iu
f. et to acclaim the challenger, made
one think of a tidal wave or an
earthquake or some other mighty
force of nature. Carpentler was
accompanied by Descamps. Wilson
and Joumee. He was palpably nervous.
although he did well at carrying
it off with an air ot nonchalance.
He bowed, shook hands with himself
to the crowd and smiled, but when
he sat down in his corner he was
unable to control his fingers They
kept moving nervously, plucking at
the ropes, tapping on his knees. He
constantly wetted his dry lips with
his tongue. When Dempsey entered
the ring the Frenchman rose and
greeted him effusively. Dempsey
met the advance with what amounted
to * rebuff. He nodded curtly to
the Frenchman and his expression
or sullen consentration was relieved
by no answer to the Frenchman's

corner, apparently objecting to
everything that happened. If it was
his intention to annoy the champion.
he failed. He paid no more
attention to him than he would
have paid to a fly on the floor. Between
the rounds Descamps was a
study in impotent agony. He has
always been like a fussy mother
to his charge,. and to ?tllnd he,
less by the ringside and see him
beaten into submission was perhaps
to him a greater agony tkan
Carpentler himsei, was experiencing
at the hands of his opponent. Between
the rounds Descamps worked
over Carpentler furiously and with
tears standing in his beady little
eyes. Carpentler himself was a pic

there was agony, a terrible wild

the climax of his career. It was
the thins: for which he had lived
and fought since his eleventh year
when Descamps. a strolling acrobat*

in France and started to mako of

ever sine* Carpentier can remember

Carpentier's one remaining glory
?the one good height to which he
ittained?was the tremendous ovaion
given him when he entered

On the first round Dean ended 1

perhaps, has there been a
sporting event that aroused such
bitter partisanship on an athletic

There were many strange features
of the affair. And of them
all, perhaps the strsngest is the
tragic fact that Carpentier is
triumphant In defeat and Dempsey
is cruelly defeated in triumph.
I^et no man think that the taste
of that defeat In victory Is not bitter
in Dempsey's mouth. Dempsey
