the Cadillac man. Ad had all the bet
ter of the last two rounds, forcing
the fighting and boring in. Both
men were fairly well bruised up at

In New York Benny Leonard com
pletely worsted Champion Freddie
Welsh, having the Briton in dire dis
tress on one occasion. In every de
partment of the game the young New
Yorker was the superior of the title
holder and inflicted the most punish
ment Fred, because of his agility
and ability to cover up, was not se
verely injured. The general opinion
of the ringsiders was that Leonard
could have won in a long fight
It is doubtful if Leonard is as good
as last night's fight might indicate.
The champion has a way of pulling
himself now and then, looking to be
a flivver, then coming back later and
cleaning up his next opponent How
ever, we cannot go behind the re
turns, and on the result of this fight
the next logical battle is between
Leonard and Charlie White.

HANG A MAN EVERY FRIDAY
ADVISES GRAND JURY
Have a haneine every Friday for
I six months and the shameful list of
yearly murders in Chicago will dwin
dle. Such was the advice contained in
the grand jury report submitted to
Judge Fitch, criminal court, yester
day. "From the great number of mur
ders committed, many apparently
upon the slightest provocation, it
would seem that there must be an
impression abroad in Cook county
capital punishment has been elim
inated as a penalty for crime, and we
strongly urge upon courts and juries
that it be re-established and inflicted
for the wholesome effect it would no
doubt have," reads the report
"If there was an execution every
Friday for six months we believe
that the number of murders would
be greatly decreased."
The jury also delivered an attack
on the adult parole system.
