Unprejudiced experts agree that Freddy Welsh, beyond a doubt, earned the "decision which lie was awarded over Willie Ritchie and which carried with it the lightweight championship of the world. Although all resident Americans and tourists who witnessed the fight.? were bitterly disappointed that Ritchie should have lo3t his title on a . de cision, it was admitted that Welsh bad piled up sucn a lead id the early rcunda of last night's fight that it was impossible for Willie to win unless he administered a' kneckout. Ritchie rallied remarkably in the last four, rounds, but even his stiff punches, always carrying more stmg and inflicting greater damage than Welsh's, were not sufficient to offset the Welshman's' ,lirlier points and stragetical defense.- : "My greatest concern was to avoid Ritchie's right punch." said Welsh to day. "He has Improved greatly in de livering , this blow, and therefore I played safe from start to finish." Ritchie took his defeat gamely to day. ' ..;; : . ; "I haven't any excuse to offer," the ex-champicn said. '1 was simply beat en by a quicker arid cleverer man." L No date has vet been fixed fcr the return match which Ritchie, with far- sighted caution, stipulated In the. fight articles. .should be granted. , Tho; arti-" cles provided tliat.ihls return . match occur In the fall.

T- AMERICAN ATHLETES MAKE GOOD SHOWING IN BRITISH EVENTS As.UCittfl tTVS4 XKW YORK, July 22. The showing made by the American athletes in the Englfsh track and field championships again demenstrates the fact that in this particular department of sport the 'United States performers can hold thoir own against the world. In an n?ry list of close to 240 there were seven Americau competitors, three of whom participated In two events, ply ing this country a total entry of ten. This little band competed in nine of the nineteen events composing the program, winning two '. first, two sec ond and two third places, five of the seven cptrants being placed in the finals against a field which included athletes from all parts of the British Isles, South Africa, Sweden, Austra lasia and Canada. These entries were either personal or club entries andwere in no 'way official United States or Amateur Ath letic Union entries. The expenses of tbe athletes were paid by themselves or by their respective clubs and Hie conditions under which the athletes trained and traveled abroad were far different from those governing a. rep resentative American team competing in either Olympic or international track and field games. "Hobey" Ma ker, the former Princeton university football and hockey captain, who went abroad with several of the athletes who competed at the English games, in writing of the trip, states: "It was amnslng to talk with train er Jack Kelly In charge of Homer Ra ker of the New York Athjettc club and Harry Smit of the Rronxville Church House, the well known dis tance men, while on their way to com pete in the English championships. The steamer on which we made tho voyage was poorly adapted to train ing purposes. The passengers li'tle realized the importance of practice anc hampered the runners In their practice by crowding the decks so that Kelly was forced to get his charges u:i early in the morning and give them another workout late at night. Kelly was very optimistic because he ha J in Homer Raker one of tho best half miiers in the . country; Baker's best time in the half mile previous to the games was 1:.6. Melvin Sheppard of the New York Athletic club holds the present English record of 1 : 54." Baker came within two-fifths of a secend of this record and. established a new record for the.

Oler cleared feet 2 1-2 inches, while his team mate was winning the half mile, which Is I 1-8 inches below his world's Interschc. astic record made la 112 while a scholap at Pawling school. B KILLED WITH irhtDJif mi mi The Garden Island carries the fol ic wing account of a tragedy at the home plate, which recently occurred in a ball game played on Kauai: Francisco Buenaflor, a Filipino be longing to Chas. AkFs camp near Ia wai, was hit over the head with a baseball bat in the hands of one Isa bello de la Cruz at Homestead at about noon Sunday and died in the Koloa hospital at 11 o"clock that night De la Cruz is under arrest and will be charged with manslaughter. The Filipino -team from the camp had gone over to play a game of baseball with the Portuguese team of Kalaheo. During the game the vic tim of the accident who, was playing first base, made a wild throw to third as a result of which all of the runner's scored. ' Antonio. Pangelina the catcher, gave Buenaflor a severe calling down for his wi.- throw and there was a hot argument De la Cruz at that Jucture stepped up from be hind, being ready to go to bat. and entered the argument; Buenaflor said to him : "You are another one al ways accusing me; I can lick either tone of you.' Stories as to just what happened next vary, but Buenaflor evidently moved toward de la Cruz and a sec ond later received a hard crack over the head with a bat, which laid him out De la Cruz claimed that he struck the man, not to hurt him but to stop him. as he was evidently starting in to fight. ; The Princeton university class of "84 proposes to establish, a. hall ;of fame for former Princeton, athletes. tThe members plan to Inaugurate thi3 project with a tablet to their class mate.

This article, illustrated with photographs of local service and civilian players and ponies, comes under the head of desirable publicity for Oahu. and will probably open the eyes of malnlandcrs to the polo possibilities of Hawaii. The book is dedicated to Major general Wm. H. Carter, now command ing the Hawaiian department, the ded ication reading as follows:. "To Major-General Wm. H. Carter, U. S. A., to whom the Mounted Service SchocI owes Its Inception and who. for many years prior to the establish raent of the schcol and the resultant fnterest in military horsemanship ami the service mount vss the foremost exponent of. the study of the sorvlce porse. this book Is dedicated." The following are extracts from tho sketch of Hawaiian polo: v. "As a matter of fact. Hawaii Is one of the oldest polo centers in the world, and the game was .In high ponnlar favor In the Islands when it was hari Iv more than a name In contfncntal United States. 'For 38 years tho Ha waiian stick swingers have been busy, and several generations of polo play ers have come and gone, while the game has had Its ups and downs; Its periods cf prosperity and its lean years. Now and then some player fjom Hawaii '"would get a chance to nerfcrm cnthe mainland, -fields jnittse ' 2100 miles cfcean between Honolulu and San Francisco and the high cost cf transportation for men and mount3 proved an effectual barrier between Hawaiian polo and its general exploit aticn. It was not until the spring of last year that a polo invasion, of California was finally accomplished, although it had been talked of for a decade past, hut although the expenses of the campaign ran many thousands over the estimates, the islanders. con sidered their money well spent for they won five cut of nine big tourna ments, held at Coronado, Pasadena and San Mateo, and their rood show ing and good sportsmanship spotted Hawaii ! firmly on the polo map. "While the game has been pfayed in the Hawaiian Islands since 1876. It is only within the last ten years that a new clement one that revived the flagging Interest and stirred up com petition, was Infected Into the sport Army polo has been the spur to local pride and now the service la always represented in the Inter-lsland 'chan plcnsh.'ps which take place on the island of Oahu In August or September every year. A supplementary tourna ment Is held at Schofieid Barracks af ter the championship, in which the sec ond teams cf the cavalry and theOahi nolo chib, the men who have taken the hard knocks and furnished the oppo sition "and many of the mounts for the first string players for tie season, get their Innings. , "To date army teams have., not shown the class cf polo that the best Island fours display, tut the time Is coming when the cavalry, field artil lery, and possible an Infantry team will give the locals all they rare for ?n the way of ' competition. The an swer to civilian supremacy on the polo field is twofold mounts and experi ence. The cavalrymen have never been able to get together a string that could show . the foot of the Island mounts, and this Is not surprising, when It is remembered that two Ha waiian oon'es. Carry-the-Nca'S, owned Sy Dr. Will Baldwin, and Helen C the property of Walter F. Dillingham, were used In both internaticnal matches In 1913. while F. F. Baldwin's, Dandy, an other of the Hawaii string, was eonsid ered good enensrh fo be shipped east and was only out cf the game because of Injury sustained in practice. Harry Paynft Whltnejr played Carry-the-News twa fbll periods in each game and thucht so much of the uony that he sked'Us owner to set his own price. Dr. Baldwin, however, refused to sell, nd the three ponies made the trip back to Hawaii, too Iate,however. to take part' In any of the local tourna ments. At the timc 'of this writin?
