The arrcw at the right points to the site, which Is in the very heart of the downtown buslne*s. financial and shopping districts. The arrow at the left shows the site of the present temporary clubhouse on Farragut Square. The dots represent the location of members of the club. These dots bunched on the edges of the map represent members situated north of M street, west of Nineteenth street, south of Pennsylvania av enue. and east of Eleventh street. The densest membership. It will be noted, is within a block or two of the site of the new clubhouse. Statistics show that 50 per cent of the 1,500 members of the club are located within two blocks of the site and that 85 per cent ar^ situ ated east of Fifteenth street. Thus the new clubhouse will be only a few steps from the offices or places of business of most of the members of the club and will be easily accessible to members' wives when they are downtown shopping. Was Carpentier Trained By a Lady, Question Bernard Shaw Asks Georirc Bernard Hhaw, noted Brltlnh author, write* his veralon ?f the Carpentier-Beckett flaht for The Herald, dUplnylnic a knowl edge of prise flabtlajr which exceed* that of nay Brltlnh ?porting authority?he picked Carpentier to win the minute he taw him en ter the ring. Like all sporting audiences, it con sists mostly of persons who mani festly cannot afford the price of ad mission. My seat has cost me more than ten times what I have paid to hear ?'Parsifal" at Baireuth, or Beethoven's "Ninth Symphony" at a very special performance at the opera in Paris. Certainly there are people here who can spare 10 guineas or 25 easily enough; honorables and right honorables, explorers, sporting stock brokers, eminent professional men, plutocrats of all sorts; men with an artistic interest in the dis play?like Robert Lorraine. Granville Barker, Maurice Baring, Arnold Ben nett and myself. But the prevalent impression is the usual one of a majority ot men who have sacrificed a month's wages to i be present, and hope to retrieve it by bets 011 the result. Here and 1 there is a lady. Not any particu lar sort of lady or no lady; Jos' an ordinary lady. The one who) happens to be sitting by me is oii< next whom I might And myself in the stalls of any theater, ar in church. Crowd Gvri Wild. Then the cheering began, rather localized, because from most of the seats little could be seen except the j platform. Even the Prince of Wales had had some diffltulty in procuring 'silence for his brief speech when he | entered, and several people believed I for some time that it iiad -<becn made by Carpentier. As it happened, I was ! near the gangway by which the cham pions came in, and, therefore, saw at once that the cheering was for Mr. Joseph Beckett, who was approaching I in an unpretentious dressing gown. Mr. Beckett, though the descriptive I reporters insisted on making him play Orson to his opponent's Valentine, is by no means ill-looking. His features are not Grecian, but he can be de scribed exactly as a very sensible looking man. and I may say at oncc that he behaved all through, and has behaved ^ince. more sensibly than most men could in a very trying sit- J uation. 1 liked Mr. Beckett very well and did not change my opinion later on, as some of his backers did. He mounted the scaffold and w#nt to his corner. A burst of louder cheering made me look around again to the gangway, and this time I was startled by a most amazing apparition; nothing less than Charles XII. "the madman of the North." striding along the gangway in a Japanese silk dressing gown as gallantly as if he had not been killed almost exactly 301 years before. I have seldom received so vivid an Im j pression. and T knew at once that as thir*could hardly be Charles, he must be either Carpentier or the devil. Genius could not be more unmistaka ble. Being In that line myself I was under no illusion as to genius being Invincible. I knew that Mr. Beckett might turn out to be Peter the Great, and that Charles might be going to his Poltava, but genius is genius < all the same, in victory or defeat. Carpeatler Well Liked. The effect of the audience on the . two ihen was very noticeable. Beckett, too sensible to be nervous,1 put up with the crowd of people staring at him as a discomfort that was all in the day's work. Carpen tier rose at the crowd, and would have had 40.000 instead of 4,000 if he could. He was at home with It: he dominated it; he picked out his friends and kissed hands to them in his debonair way, quite naturally, without swank or mock modesty, as one born to move assemblies. The descriptive reporters began to scribble thei* tale of a frail French stripling and a massive British co lossus. Utter nonsense. The physi cal omens were all against the Briton. Beckett, who was trained, tf anything, a little too fine, has a' compact figure, a boxlike chest. I Lloyd George Rewards Old Business Partner (By Herald Leased Wire) London. Jan. 10.?Premier Lloyd George's old partner in the solicitor business. Arthur Rhysv Roberts, head of the firm of Rhys Roberts and Company, of Queen Victoria, has been appointed official solicitor to the j supreme court in place of 8ir William Winterbotham. who has retired. Mr. Roberts, confirming his appoint ment. said he had been in partner ship with the premier In London for eight years. According to the reference books, the official solicitor to the supreme court draws a salary of a thousand pounds (normally 16.000) a year. stout, stumpy arms, useful only for punching, and a thicklsh neck too short to take his head far out of harm'* way. Carpentler. long and lithe, has a terrible pair of arms, very long, with the forearms heavy just where the weight should be. He has a long chest, a long reach, a tong, flexible neck. and. last, but not least, a long head. Nobody who knew the A B C of boxing could doubt for a moment that unless Beckett could wear him down and outstay him. and stand a good deal during the process, he could not win at the physical odds against him, except by a lucky knockout. When the men stood up, another] curious asset of Carpentier's raised the extraordinary question whether he had not been taught to box by a lady. Some years ago Mrs. Diana Watts, a lady athlete whtf believed that she had discovered the secret of ancient Greek gymnastics, repro duced with her own person the pose and action of the Discobolus and the archer In the Heracles pediment in the British Museum, both or which had been up to that time considered physically Impossible. Her book on the subject, with Its interesting photographs, is still ex tant. Her method was to move and balance the body on the ball of the foot without using the heel, and to combine this with a certain tech nique of the diaphragm. Carpentler To* Fast. Now the moment "Time'' was called and Carpentier was on his feet In the ring it was apparent that he had this technique. He was Tike a man on springs: and the springs were not In his heels but In the balls of his feet. His diaphragm tenue was perfect. Whethe- his lady instructor was Mrs. Diana Watts or Dame Nature, she has turned out a complete Greek athlete. This really very remark able and gymnastically Important phenomenon has been overlooked, partly because it has not been under stood. but partly also because the change In Carpentier's face when he sets to work is so startling that the spectators can see nothing else. The unmistakable Greek line digs a trench across his forehead at once; his color changes to a stony gray: he looks 10.000 years old: his eyes sec through' stone walls; and his expression of In tensely concentrated will frightens everyone in the hall except his op ponent, who Is far too busy to attend to such curiosities. There was no ft3ht. There was only a superb exhibition spar, with Beckett as what used to be called a chopping block. For a few moments he wisely stuck close to his man; but Mr. Angle gave the order (I did not hear It, but was told of it), to break away; and Beckett then let the Frenchman get clear and faced him for outfighting. From that moment he was lost. Car pentier simply did the classic thing; the long shot with the left; the lead off and get-away. The measurement of distance?and such a distance!? was exact to an Inch, the speed dazzling, the Impact like the kick of a thoroughbred horse. Beckett, ex cept for one amazed lion-like shake of his head, took it like a atone wall; but he was helpless; he had not time to move a linger before Carpentier was back out of his reach. He was Utterly outs peed ed. Three" times Car pentler did this, each hit more bril liant, If possible, ftian the last. Beekett Daaed. Beckett was for a moment dazed by the astonishing success of the at tack; and in that moment Carpentier sent In a splendidly clean and finished right to the Jaw. It l? not often that perfect luck attends perfect style In this world; but Carpentler seemed able to command even luck. The blow found that mysterious spot that is In all our Jaws, and that Is so seldom found by the flat. There was no mis taking the droop with which Beckett went prone to the boards. In an old ? e i tight he would have been carried by his seconds to his corner and brought up to the scratch in half a minute, quite well able to go On. Under modern rules he had to lie un helped. and at the end of ten seconds Carpentier was declared the winner. Carpentler had made the spar ho In tensely interesting that the seventy-] four seconds it had occupied seemed like ten; and I could hardly believe that four had elapsed betwaen tip moment when Beckett dropped To the boards and the Jub(Jan*-?prlng into the air with which Carpentler announced that the decision had been given In his favor: Ue was as unaffected In his dellgftf as he had been In his nervousness before. "Time" waa called when lie had asked his bottle-holder for a mouthful of wafer and thereby confessed to a dry mouth. The uaua! orgqf followed. Pugilists are- a senti mental feminine species. much given to kissing and crying. Carpentler was hoisted up to be chaired, dragged down to be kissed, hung out by the heels from the scaffold to be fondled by a lady, and In every possible way. given reason to envy BackstL 1 ACCOUNTANTS' UNION PLANNED ?i Committee Named to Draft Constitution for Organi zation H.ere.

Jan. 10.?General Leonard Wood arrived in this city tonight for his first visit sinec he became an ac tive candidate for the Republican nomination for President. ? Gen- Wood made no comment on his candidacy, but went directly to the Harvard Club, where he was received by a party of old friends, including State officials and prominent New York business men.
