New York. June i5.?The most
competent man for the position of
referee of the big ring battle be
tween Willard and Dempsey at To
]? d" .-n July 4 is Jack Skeily. of
Yonkers. former feather-weight
boxer, who bears a national repu
tation for honesty and fearlessness.
Skeily is highly regarded by sport
ing men all over the country. He
knows the boxing game from every
engle and never has been involved
in scandal.
He ha.-* refereed numerous bouts
? f Importance and i*> well qualified,
as a result of actual experience in
side of the ropes, to render a fair
decision. It is understood that
Skeily meets with the approval of
the Army. Navy and Civilian Board
of Boxing Control and there seems
to bo no sound reason why he
shouldn't be acceptable to both
Dempsey and Willard.
Skeily should be appointed referee
without further wrangling. His
presence in the ring would guaran
tee a square deal for the principals
and those who fay to see the mill.

While Johnson Is Beaten
1 -0 in Nightcap.
Botson, June 25.?The Nationals and
Refl Sox broke even in their double
bill at Fenway Park this afternoon.
After Washington had sprayed th?
locale nicely with an 8-to-3 setback
in the first clash it looked as if they
were groins to get away with both
games when they sent the sturdy
Johnson to the mound. Hut Boston
got the other?1 to 0.
The Red Sox, after a loose open
ing contest in which their defense
particularly was below par, tightened
land in a fine battle nosed out a vic
| tory. In this contest the 8ox, by
' lire stick work, jammed over a tally
!in the opening inning, and It proved
the only score of the entire game.
.While the^Sox were finding Johnson
' for but five hits?all of them singles
Jones was holding the Nationals down
I to but four bingles, kept well scat
tered throughout the nine sessions.
There was never much doubt about j
the result of the opening game. Raih ;
was sent in to pitch, .with Shaw j
facing him for the invaders. The op
i position appeared not to be greatly
I troubled with the strong man's
shoots, and in the very first inning |
j showered the locals with four runs. !
| By the time the third inning was
1 ended Washington had the home
j folks by a margin that was never
| endangered.
The first four runs were scored by
I vigorous work with the stick. Judge
I sot on with a pass, and he was on
f ihird a moment later when Foster
i clouted a snappy double to the lett I
j garden. Milan delivered a single
| sacker, sending Judge in. while Fos
? ter went to third. The latter, to
: gether with Milan, jprossed the plate
i when Rice crashed a magnificent
j home run that sailed close to the
flagpole in the far center field. Ghar
J rity bange<j oat a single to the center

Th? Sox second run in the fourth
was from Scott's double and Shean's

Approximately $1,000,000
In Toledo to Bet on
Toledo. Ohio, June 25.?Approxi
mately $1,000,000 waa rushed into
town today from all parts of the
country with the instruction: "Bet
it at even money that Jack Demsey
whips Jess Willard on July Fourth."
The bulk of the money came from
the plungt rs in the big: cities who
hoped to find odds against Deifipsey
in their own towns. Failing to lo
cate better than even money they
sent it here with the expectation of
finding; Willardites who would lay
at least six to Ave on their man.
But practically all of that $1,000,-1
000 remains unplaced. There is no J
financial backing for Willard and?
right now there is the belief that j
before fight time Dempsey will rule
a five to four and perhaps a five to
three favorite over the champion.
If that corner about It means a sit
uation without parallel in pugilistic
Never in the annals of American
ringdom has a champion failed to go
to the "post" a favorite. Paddy
Ryan was a li to 1. shot over John I*.
Sullivan, and ihe great Bostonian's
backers laid 4 to 1 that he would
whip Corbett. The Californian was
favorite Over Bob Fitzsimmons, and
Bob, in turn, was a 13 to a ruler over
Jim Jeffries. When Jeff went against j
Johnson he was favorite, while John- j
son was 3 to 1 when he battled VVH- j
lard. ' j
The absence of Willard money can !
be explained in only one way. His j
most enthusiastic friends have lost |
confidence because he doesn't seem,
to be in fighting shape, and thf-y 1
figure an aged and improperly J
trained Willard cannot endure the]
sledgehammer attacks of the cyclonic, i
youthfu^and superbly trained Demp- ,
, The fact that the Dempsey crowd
evidences franti~ eagerness to plunge
on him even before the refereeing
snarl is untangled shows confidence
never before exhibited in a heavy- I
weight challenger.
In all other clashes the heavy ot
fenjngs of money were restrained
until thte "third man" angle had been

Mr. Dempsey's sweetheart is Miss

She is a petite blond?the honest-to

Rickard or Pecord, Toledo
Official, Are Only Ones
Now in Race for Job.
Toledo, Ohio, June 26.?Tex Rickard
or Ollle Pecord will referee the bout
between Jack Dempaey and Jess Wli
lard, according tci the^best lnforma
tion obtainable here "today. Willard
hag practically refuaed to accept any
referee other than Rickard, but Tex
la holding back. It was believed he
might be able to convince the cham
pion that Pecord is competent and ac
ceptable. *
Kickard has had practically no ex
perience as a referee. He is a fight
fan and knows boxing, but his ref
ereeing is practically limited to hlfc
session in the ring with Jack Johnson
and Jeffries when they met nine years
ago in Reno. Tex was forced Into
the ring at that time when the prin
cipals refuaed to agree on ?ny man.
As a referee he is a mere amateur,
but Willard places great reliance In
his honesty. He also would be ac
ceptable to Jack Kearns, manager ot
Fecord's Candidacy has received
a great boost by the tactics of
Willard. for Jhe Toledo boxing
commission has entered the argu
ment with a strong hand. It bas
sent word that It will brook no
wrangles of any kind that are
likely to cast a shadow on the box
ing game, and Willard will have to
do something soon. He is throwing
up the only barrier to an appoint
ment of a ring official. Rickard
and Kearns are agreeable to sev
eral competent men.
The name of Jack Welsh, who
was third man inside the rop?s
when Willard won his title from
Jack Johnson, has been mentioned
with considerable frequency, but
his appointment is now considered
a very remote possibility. Kid
Mi-P&rland. who lias officiated In
some important bouts in New Vork
most satisfactorily, also has been
brought into the argument.

Bowie-Marlboro Tracks
Banned by High Court
Munroe Claims Fred Lost
Nerve Before Dempsey
Fight Had Started.
(Wrlttra Bpeelnl I) fmr The Wuh
lngton Herald.)
?"red had been badly dazed more
than once from heavy punches on
the chin. A1 Reich had him ai
mo?t out, but lila fear of Fulton's
punch prevented him from follow
ing up his advantage. Then there
were a number of peopta who
thought that Fred dldn t relish the
furious fighting: put out by Carl
Morris when they met in New York.
? red won that scrap on a foul and
I there were those who thought that
1wa" mighty glad to get away
with it on I not score. I saw that
rbout and pcisonally I don't blame
rulton for objecting to Morris'
foul tactics which have no business
in the make-up of a fair lighting
man. *
Dempsey Won Bool. ' !
Dempsey to my mind won the I
fi^ht before it started. I had a
seat very near to Fred's own cor
ner. He was the first man to enter
the ring Shortly afterward Demp
sey arrived on the haiyj scene.
Jack had on a bath-robe and a cap
pulled rakishly on one side of his
head. Jack then peeled off the robe
and with boyish enthusiasm began,
pounding his chest with hi* pow
erful list.*. The resounding thuds
of knuckles on solid muscle evi
dently attracted the attention of
the plasterer.
1 remember that a second was
obstructing Fred's view of the
diagonal angle and Fulton craned
his head considerably to one side
in order to get a look at his man.
If I am riot mistaken the color of
Fulton's face disappeared and took
on a hue almost white, although
lie had been training in the open
for several weeks.
??We'll Com* Out FijcMlaa.**
Then came the little stratagem,
if it was ?u<-ant for such, which. I
think was as instrumental in win
ning th? fight as the finishing blow
itself. Dempsey strode nonchalantly
over to Fulton and extending his
hand r? marked: "We ll shake now.
th?n we can come out fighting."
That maneuver, probably calculated
to worry Fulton, gave the tall
Plasterer a lot to think about in
the few minutes, before the clang
of the bell anndfcncing hostilities.
Quirk Knockout.
Kighteen and three-fifths seconds
after the brazen notes of the gong
had died away Fulton was stretch
ed senseless on the canvas. Thi.
Wouid seem to bear out the argu-,
ineni that big Fred was liek'-d be
fore the ran(f although it is
true that quick knockouts are of
ten registered with both men en
tnusiastic for battle.
Jack's first blow as he rushe<l
in .low was a pile-driving left
to Hilton's body. Fulton with an
a*.onizei] , xpression doubl-d fr..m
the waist line and Dempsey. in ,he
"Id J,m .-..rbett fashion, whipped
the ?am. hand to Freds lon?, lean
angular jaw. Fulton swayed to the
leu from th* deadly impact, fairly
in the path of Demps-y's swishing
light which also connected with'
precision. Fred collided with the
canvas In a sort of sitting position I
his neck against the rope. From
this posture he gradually moved
until almost flat on his ba k It
was also as clean a knockout as
I ve ever witnessed.
j Fulton has since stated that the i
bout was a "frame-up." but to the
best of my knowledge and belief
airaff* n? "Vld, nce of a Prearranged

trick before the gong sounded re
minds me of another battle which
was won in almost the same man
