Those "sport enthusiasts" who
were planning a heavyweight cham
pionship fight between Fred Fulton
and Jess Willard had their plans
knocked awry last night when Ful

fouled Carl Morris in a New York
The majority of the ringside crit
ics hint that the Rochester man was
not careful in placing his blows and
didn't care much where they landed.
He had plenty of Morris' goods and
was willing to let the affair go by de
fault. The foul was a blow which
doubled Morris on the flodr.
While the fight lasted Morris had
all the better of it and peppered Ful
ton almost at will. The blows he
took in return lacked-power to hurt,
and Morris made the fight according
to his own plans. He battled. at close
range and Fulton had no defense to
combat that style.
Tom Jones, manager of Willard, is
afraid there can.be no fight between

LABOR HITS AT WAR.
The Chicago Federation -of Labor
last night sent the following war pro
test to President Wilson:
"The common people do not want
war We believe they will vote over
whelmingly against war if given the
opportunity, the trust-owned press
to the contrary notwithstanding.
The strong defensive policy along the
line of armed neutrality already laid
down offers every protection that
could be obtained through a declara
tion of war. Our going to war will
not 'bring peace; it will prolong the
struggle indefinitely. If we stay out
and protect our own rights, if we re
fuse to be guarantors of the aims of
belligerents or of war bonds held by
American bankers, we believe peace
negotiations will come before July.
No nation that allows itself to be
driven into war by its reactionary
element is acting along the line of
