Young RlTe.ru defeated Billy Cap pelle. la ten rounds; decision. ' KM Dull.mi and Morrie Bloom drew In ten rounds j decision. JAY DAVIDSON Morris Bloom, the clever Chicago light weight whom Joe Levy brought to Los An geles to begin a chase after the lightweight championship, made an inauspicious start last night when he wan lucky to (tot I draw in hi» ten-round debut with Kiel Daiton. In the early rounds lie seemed to bo doing nicety and sure to outpoint the spaghetti champion, but h« weakened in the Ins: (half of the fight, under the effect of a con tinual volley of rights and lefts to the stom ach and was forced to fight on the defen she almost throughout the last (lv.i round". Dalton was outclassed as far as clever boxing goes, as Bloom kept sticking his left Into the mush of Dalton ■until It eeemed that It might got stuck In the mire after awhile, but Kiddo did not falter for a moment and kept on slamming away with rights and lefts that got to th» i.hlcago iboy's stomach and ribs with great regu larity and effect. Bloom rallied In the ninth «nd "had a shade by reason of his clever work, but In the final round, when both (hoys were trying to make a winning fin ish ' honors were even. If not shading 'lightly in favor of the hard-hitting, pm,- Jihln« Dalton. It was a good fight and the fane had plenty of opportunity to yell their heads off, regardless of who they war. root- Ing for. The fight by detail follows: Neither did any damage or any very effective work In the opening round, sparring ann clinching mostly, with Daiton aggressively forcing the issue! Bloom did a .Tack O'Brien etunt with his feet and hands In bong constantly on the move and avoiding anything that looked dangerous. Bloom opened up nicely IB the second, when Tialton came running to met him In the center of the ring, and showed a punch that was a most effective accompaniment to his clever ness He Jarred Daiton several times with I pretty r.irht hooks and tippercuts, and easily had the shade in this round. Dalton went after Bloom sgirresstvely In the third, and while he stopped many a. straight left with his mouth, which soon he gan to grow red with a tiny stream of claret, he did some effective work and had a slight shade at the gong. Tie sat Bloom on his haunches with a left hook to the jaw as they broke out of an early clinch and kept Bloom on the go all the time. Dalton continued to Increase his lend In the fourth by an oggre?slvo policy which was most effective, despite the footwork and clev erness of Bloom. Palton played his right effectively to the wind and ribs and occasion ally chased It over the head. Bloom u«ed a right uppercut that was a dandy and effective, but he could not Flow down the spaghetti champion. Bloom got back on his stride In the fifth (md at least held honors even In I fast slug ging session. In which both boys used their right frequently and with effect. Dalton shawed tho b?tter wallop, hut Bloom was so fast that he minimized In a degree the damage. Dalton I"i 1 s Hirrht shade nt n lively session in the elxtli. playing his right hard to the stomach with great persistency and forcing Bloom onto the defensive practically through out the round, Bloom led only seldom and sometimes counted, hut Dalton forced the fighting and linrt a good shade nt the gong. Doll gave imm a fearful lacing In the pevetith, and it seemed that th? Chicago boy wns a bit worried at the effort of til many pokes that Dalton pent to his mldseotioln. Dalton , i;,-. d him all over the ring and pounded him unmercifully without much return. ■ Blnom cam" bnelc for the eighth with fresh courage and hli old assortment of straight left find rjclit lippereiltn, which he worked to good advantage, with an occasional right hook to the Jaw. Bloom had a fair shade in this round. Tim Chicago hoy began to make a finish In th" ninth, and by clever boxing and fast foot work lie succeeded in putting over several stiff hooks to the Jaw and right hooks to the body .nd law, taking a gdod lead In the round, His left was Uie most effective weapon, and he rocked Pulton's head almost continually with It. The final round was fought desperately by Jmth boys In an effort at puttlnE a winning touch upon a close score. Each punished the other with stiff punched and swings to the body and head, and at the eong it was about on even thing: for the round. Cornell Fefeats Fusco The first preliminary was a six-round bout t>etwoen Willie Cornell and Mike Fuuco, wel terweights, neither of which seemed to know anything at all about tin- business In which they were engaged. They were so awkward that they fell down and tumbled over the ropes In their wild rushes and awing*, but they did some slugging at that. The affair ■was so unsatisfactory to the fans that they threw oranges into the ring and expressed their disapproval in hoots. Cornell probably had a shade the better of whatever slight milling was done, hut he achieved nothing to he proud of. Artie Reynolds, the new pre liminary referee, made his maiden appearance In the local ring and handled this bout, Ha tied nothing 10 do beyond assisting the? clum ■y fighters to arise from the mate after they had stepped on each other's toes and fallen. Rees Stops McFarland The second preliminary was a classy exhi bition between Kid Rees and Tommy McKar- Jand. scheduled to go ten rounds, but It ended in the third round up*.a orders from the po lice, after McFarland had bee.n put down three times. Up to the moment that Reea connected with McFarland's jaw with a slag ccring right hook the fight was very even, ■with both boya goint? at v fast clip and show ing good class. This punch to the Jaw made 2VJcFar!aJil groggy, and a moment later, after 11 fierce mlxup, rura whipped a hard right under the heart und McFarland went d/jwn find fell 11s he tried to arise. He was up in a moment, however, and went Into Another liard wallop to the riba that Jtgttin put him down. When he arose this tinie he was so ' irrOKfry thai he could nut adequately defend : himself, and was again put down with a body blow. Then the police, through Danny Ix>ng, ordered Referee Reynold! to .stop the bout. Rivers Outfights Cappelle Two game and clever little, fighters fur- Dished the third number on the program when Billy Cappelle of Han Pedro and Young Rivers met In a scheduled ten-round buut. Hirers Is a slashing fighter, with speed to burn, considerable cleverness and a, terrlflu wallop, while Cappelle was willing to follow the stiff, pace he set. It was lie vt tho fas-test and most exciting minor event battles itaged. at Naud Junction It) many a day and, while Rivers won In every round, Cappelle put up a good fight, but Rivers was entirely too Bpeedy for him, outboxing and GUtaluggtng him in every round and always being on the aggressive. Rivera will be a. good card with boys of better class than Cappcll and prob ably will bo- given a. chance to climb. Langford Gives Exhibitions The exhibition bouts between Bam 1-anpford as principal attraction In each and his spar ring partners, (Jeorgo Byers and Boh Aim strong, cams next, and as the great negro lighter entered the ring he wits accorded an unusual reception in applause that amounted almost to an ovation. They boxed with tin: largest sized, or training, glove! with which they could hit as hard as they pleased with out danger of a knockout, and they went at It as If in earnest. They hit each other witli resounding sinacka li every round and mixed in a little minstrelsy to put the fans in a ■rood humor, showing clever boxing with liractleally no dartmgo resulting.

The decision ordered the. raelaaa on a writ of habeas corpus of W. W. Roberts, who was arrested recently at Emeryville for acting aa a stakeholder for a bet on a horse race. Referring to the flrist clause, th» decision ■ays: "As plainly as words can declare It for bids every person from receiving money bet or wagered by or for any other person upon the result of a horsa race or upon any con tingent or unknown event. It may require some stretch of credulity to believe that th« legislature could have enacted a penal law making un act which may be so trivial a felony, but when a reading of thai act dis closes that It has been enacted there can be no misunderstanding of its meaning or ef- | feet, if it stands alone and without qualifi- i cation." Tha decision then recites that both ele menu of a crime must exist, and tliat sine j Roberts did not own, lease or operate a place for accepting such wafers as he was accused of taking, as provided for by the second clause of the Walker-Otis act he could not be guilty of the offense charged. The statement that the second clause is irreconcilably In consistent with the Brat was given us the j point of the decision. Shaw's interpretation of the law was concurred in by Justices An gellotti and lloes. In a concurring decision written by Justice F. W. Henanaw and concurred In by Juatlca i I .origan the tame conclusion is reached, but ; based on the decisions of the New York I courts sustaining oral betting in that state. Henshaw summed up his opinion as follows: . "As the law does not denounce the laying j of a wager, It would be preposterous to say j It denounced as criminal one who became a i depositary of such wagers." The release of Roberts and the return of his bonds were ordered by the court.
