I RATIFICATION ss Resumption of the Liquor Traffic Rests With Action of U. S. Senate. OEMPSEY IS VORLD CHAMPION PALMER'S OPINION CITEO Cap ':X Dre Acce Former Tltle-Holdcr Is Whipped From the Start He Never Had n Chance Was .Knocked Down Seven Times In the First Inning. Dempsey Is taking bows as the latest , Chnmplon of the heavyweight boxing migndo. He won the championship bo fore 50,000 spectntors. t Jess WUlnrd quit In his corner nftcr three rounds, during wjilcb he was fuiucKeu uown seven tunes ami punched Into u bloody muss around ithe fnce. He wns whipped from the ilmnp nnd never had a chance with the tremendous and cyclonic Dempsey. All )f tho knockdowns occurred In tho opening round. Wlllard actually was counted out once, the last time he went down. But no was saved by the gong, which rang n fow seconds before Iteferee 01! le re cord had finished the count. Pecord In ills excitement stepped over to Demp fiey nnd lifted his hand In token of vic tory. Dempsey rushed back to his corner, ducked under tho ropes and started to scamper down one of the long aisles. Jack Kcarns, the Dempsey manager, nnd entered the ring during the mlxup and heard the timekeeper, Warren Barbour, shouting that Wlllard hnd not been counted out before the bell rang. Then there was a mad scramble. ICearns nnd a couple of seconds rushed down the ulsle and brought Dempsey bnck. Wlllard, who had been punched dizzy, wns sitting In his corner with a silly smile and did not know what It wns all about. lie answered, the bell mechanically. Then they went ahead without much to ruflle the situation. Dempsey's long, swinging left hooks did the business. First Round. Jess was first to lead with n light left to Dempsey's fnce. The cham pion followed with a short choppy right to hend after tnking another left to face. Dempsey shot a left to tody, a fierce mlxup followed, with both punching left and rights to head. Both stood up under the punishment. Suddenly Dempsey rushed In and pnsted Wlllard to tho chin. He took the seven count and looked foolish, nnd when ho got up Dempsey shot an other right hook to the Jaw. Demp sey tore nfter J6ss, handling out ter rific punishment to the champion's chin. Again Wlllard went down, but Dempsey never let up In that furious attack. Ho simply punched WUlnrd crazy. Throe more times he knocked "Wlllard to the Moor, and finnlly the bell on tho last knockdown found WUlnrd sitting on the ennws, silly but not un conscious. It was a terrific round for the champion to cover. Dempsey thought he hnd won nnd jumped out of tho ring, when De Forest grubbed him back. Jess' right eye was closed from right-hand hooks and he was In snd condition. - j Second Round. The minute's rest helped Wlllard, but Dempsey came right back wl?h the gong, but continued to batter big Jess unmercifully with a left hook to body nnd right to Jaw, with punches J that carried the force of a pllo driver. , The champion tried hard to fight j back, but his efforts wert feeble, no 1 bad been punished too much. WUlnrd stood up all olj the second round nnd bo took punches thnt would fell an ox. Dempsey hooked rights nnd lefts for body and then for the head, and when the gong sounded It was most welcome news to tho champion. Ills lip wns cut and he could not see out of his right eye nt nil. .Third Round. It was nothing short of murder In this round, for tho ripping, tearing Dempsey tore into WUlnrd In the most furious fashion that was over seen in any ring. He shot lefts to tho body, rights to the body and rights to tho Jaw, whllo Wlllard did the best ho could do to stave off tho knockout, l)ut It seemed Inevitable. WUlnrd's face was punched to n pulp. Ono side of his fnce on which thoso left hooks had landed wns swol len badly and when he wobbled to his corner nftcr taking all this punish ment he ulmos( fell to his knees. The champion was gone. Ono more punch of any sort would have finished him, und with his fnce almost completely covered with blood his malinger, Arch- or, threw the towel Into tho ring nnd n new champion was hailed.

The house Ju diciary committee probably will meet next Monday to report out a straight bill for enforcement of wnr-tlnie pro hibition so ns to stop the sale of 2fc per cent beer. At most, It Is said, 2 nor cent beer would bo on the market loss than two weeks. This plan virtually wns ngreed upon after leaders had decided to defer con sideration or ull prohibition legislation until next week. House leaders said that If the bill were reported by the committee Monday or Tuesday, it would be passed without extended do--bate nnd sent to the sennte. Test cases on tho sale of beverages containing more than one-half of 1 per cent of nlcohol will be brought imme diately by tho department of Justlco In nil Jurisdictions whero such cases are not now pending. "Wo propose to mukc Immediate nr rcsts of persons who violate tho wnr time prohibition law according to our Interprotntlon thereof," Attorney Gen eral Pnlmer said. "The department does not Intend, however, to be swept off Its feet the first day that prohibi tion comes Into effect. We will proceed In an orderly fashion to establish whether Intoxicating beverages pro scribed by the law Include those hav ing less than 2 per cent alcohol. Mr. Pnlmer reiterated thnt all par sous vlolntlng the luw might expect "early and vigorous" prosecution. While there remains a question ns to whether 2?i per cent beer Is Intoxlcnt lng, the department of Justice' will not nttempt wholesale arrests, but If n de cision In the pending case at Baltlmoro Is favorable to the government, prose cution will result promptly. Tho attorney general said tho test enses In Now York resulted In a deci sion requiring the prosecutftin to prove that tho beer in question was Intoxi cating In each Individual case, and thnt, therefore, n decision In the Balti more case was desired to give n clear cut Interprotntlon of whether 2 per cent beer was, in fnct, Intoxicating. If upheld by tho Supreme court, such a decision would be uppllcnble to tho entire country. Mcnntlmo tho attorney general is hopeful thnt congress will pass legis lation for tho enforcement of wnr-tlmo prohibition, which would do awuy with existlug uncertainties. When Informed of reports thnt sa loons in Atlantic City were continuing to dispense whisky und similar drinks, Mr. Pnlmer said: "Well, there Is no uncertainty in ensos like tliut." Chicago, July 2. A Washington dlspntch to the Chicago Dally Newa snys : "The sennte of the United Stntcs alone can say when tho prohibition regulation which has Just gone into effect can bo removed.

Until tho senate hns ratified tho pcaco treaty President Wilson will not proclaim thnt Amer ica hns emerged from n state of war. "This action is forecast by Attorney General Pnlmer himself. As the prin cipal law bfiicor of the government nnd legal ndviser of the president he has rendered u Judgment that It will be unlawful to , trade with the enemy until pence hns been proclaimed.
