YOKEL WINS THE CONTEST j Holder of Police Ga zette Belt Is Thrown Twice in an Hour Salt Lake. Mar. 20. Mike Yokel, middleweight champion of the world, won in straight falls last night from Joe Turner, who was picked by a N'ew York illustrated weekly as the champion of tho world, okel got the first fall in :- 1-2 minutes, beginning hie decisive Rrlp with an inside crotch and half-N'elson. bnt switching' with lightning-like rapidity and ob- j taining the actual fall with a bar and head clancery, the hold with which hi- conquered Honrv Gehrins The second fall required 6 minutes and 10 sveonds and was obtained with a crotch and arm hold yokel simply pit 'red Turner up slammed him to the floor and held his shoulde rs to the mat Turner took his defeat in a sports- I manlike- manner, making a speech In j which he conceded Yokel to be the beat middlewetghl wrestler in the j world, yet saying he wanted to come here thirty days before tho next match and then play a return en gagement. Turners talk was heerd to the echo. He made thousands of friends. Turner at th verv outset of the bout began uslns every roueh bit. of tactics not forbidden by the rules and Mike paid him back In his own coin. Roth punished each other severely, but so adroit were they that the ref eree had no occasion to caution them The majority of the fans voted it a J better match than the Yokcl-Gehrlng engagement. The belt now reverts to the weekly that gave it and will probably, but not I certainly, be awarded bj that publi- I ca'lon to Yokel Fighting lllo two ancient cave men, ! with onlv their hare hands for weap- I ons. Mike Yokel and Joe Turner, in the Auditorium last nlqht, put up the j fastest wreslllng bout that was ever Been here Turner, although only 20 j yenrs old. has done so much wrestl- I inc that ho has familiarized himself with every trick and device, all of which he employed last nieht. but it was futile, because his endurance was not nearly equal to that of Yokel Despite this Turner gave the 1 fr'iPidt! of Yokel many more anxious moments than they had at the Ge aring matrh The last seven minutes preceding the first fall was furious. Turner had rubbed his hand on Mike's : sore oar and over his nose He had ' picked Mike up and with Mike's feet In the air had flung him to the mat j more with the object 'f inflicting pain than in galnlnc any real advantage Mike bore it patiently for a while. P'vlng his entire attention to oppor tunities for getting a good hold, but the last time Turner flammed him to the floor Mike decided he w.is tired of It.

Yokel s Fierce Rush, Turner's breath was rapidly disap pearing under those tactics and Yokel kepi right alter him every second.

He would not have been criticised if he had done so, for he was palpably v f ak, but Turner showed his game neps by sending out word that he would be nut in fine shape and that he intended to win the next two falls Nobody believed it, but everybody ad mired a brave man's defi when he was in the last ditch After about eighteen minutes' rest Yokel climbed through the ropes for the second period, fries of 'Oh. ou Mike" were all that could he distin guished In the cheering Turner ap peared a moment later, and he was roundly cheered for his gameneBS and his display of skill. lie put on a brave front, but his heaving chr-u and straining muscles showed he ecu Id not last long Even after the rest his breath was Irregular and came In half gasps Turner did his best, however, and the brief second period lacked much of the rough work of the first. The visitor seemed to realise that Yokel was quite competent to pay him back twinae for twinge of any plain caus ed .Tne was a little more careful Turner got behind Mike for a brief moment, but Mike was in a hurry. He had told Mrs Yokel he would be Ik me early, so he picked Turner up bv the leg and arm and slammed him 1o the mat. Moreover, he had the Btvens:th to hold him there with his shoulders pinned to the mat. Mike Is Lionized. When the great crowd saw Referee Ben Harker slap .Mikes back there was a roar of applause, and after It had subsided a little. Turner, with his dressing gown over his shoulders, signified his desire to make a talk I In crowd was asked to be silent, as Turner's breath was not equal to the task of talking loud. Alter a mo rrent to get his breath, Turner said. "I came B long was to meet the man whom I now concede to bo the heel middleweight wrestler in the world. I lost fair and square and have no fault to find This is the first time I ever set eyes on Yokel, bul I want to say he is the most gen erous adversary I ever met. I only hope that I can come here thirty days beforehand to train and get a return match " Cries of "yes, yea," and the friend I'.si jipplau.s. erected Turner as he was hurried off to his dressing room. Th. stormy night did not keep the crowd away from the great world's championship wrestling match, for ev ery seat was filled, and standing room was sold at the same price as the $1 seats had been. The carpenters had not had time to build bleachers all around the auditorium but the big structure was comfortably filled Per haps WOO persons were standing. Be tween 2500 and 3000 persons saw the bout There was onlv one preliminary, for Promoter Harry Heagren realized that the crowd wanted to see the stars and would not wait patiently if asked to enduro two preliminaries. George Nelson, tho Salt Lake fireman, threw Frank McCarroll of Idaho in 21 min utes, but was uuable to throw him again lu the nine minutes remaining of the $0 minute limit McCarroll had no time to show his offensive skill because he was kept on the defen sive almost every minute by Nelson The crowd thought McCarroll was much the lighter man and for that reason he had a lot of sympathy, but the weights announced were McCar roll 176 and Nelson 180 Star Men Appear. 1 1 was exactly 9 15 when Yokel appeared in the ring and the dem onstration made by his admirers was deafening At ! 17 Turner crawled through the rupes and was generous ly applauded Hen Harker called the wrestlers to the center of the mat and gave brief instructions The wrestlers grappled at I. 21 o'clock Kir6t one was behind and then the other in bewildering rapid ity At 9 25 Turner was behind Yo kel for a full half minute and then al 9.28 Mike bore him to the floor and caught hold of his toe and held hlru fast, but at 9 29 Turner was behind Mike again. At Mike had Turner on the mat and was tr;. ing hard for a head lock, but Tur uer bridged and did a spin deal through the ropes At 9 32, after both men had been brought bark on the mat.

At 9:36 Mike was on his bauds and knees with Turner astride of him, and utter one futile effort Mike rose up and In a fierce struggle sent Tur ner to the floor At 9:3'J both men were sitting on the mat face to face with arms and leg In an app.irein l hopeless tangle, but with kaleidosco pic rapidity and at 9 40 both were on their feet and Turner was hissed by B fen for Jabbing at Mike's eyes A.I 9.41 Turner got away from a bad arm hold, bul MIki held 'he advan tage until 9 I when Turner got be hind Mike At 9:45 Turner was behind Mike, who wa6 sitting on the mat, and Tur ner, stooping over, worked him up ind down like the handle of a churn Mike grabbed Turners leg and Tur ner, In almost .i panto, let Mike gel behind without apparent opposition At i 48 both men were on their feet, but when Mike made a feint Turner, expecting a dive, dropped to his knees and looked foolish for an instant A. 9:48 Mike was on top and was trying lor B head scissors Then Mike lift ed Turner In the air and made him do a clever headspln Turner a mo ment after held Mike in the air ;inl hurled him to the floor.

At 10 o clock both men were on their feet and were practicing at jlu Jitsu on each other's arms. At 10 05 Mike had Turner down, but Turner managed to scramble off the mai Turner now showed signs of weak ening Every time he went down Yo kel was able to hold him a little lon ger, and a6 for roughing, there va nn even break al this stage, although Turner seemed to have commence ! It, Rules Not Violated Those who hissed forgot that the rules permit all that Turner was do ing and that a man who aspires to the championship must be uble to give and take as Mike did last night. About seven minutes before the finish, how ever, of the first fall. Mike became thoroughly enraged at Turner's tac tics He went for him savagely and ufter that Turner never had the ad vantage. Mike followed him about the ring, and even when Turner dodged outside the ropes or played leapfrog Yokel was after him every minute. Fans were greatly excited, but. greatly relieved, for it was apparent the locul man was soon to win The last seven minutes included moro actual wrestling than most 30 minute matches do. The crowd was so Interested it torgot to cheer Fans were tense and silent. At last Mikt got Turner where he wanted him and the Hnl6h soon came. The second fall was leys exciting, because everybody predicted It, but Turner put up a good defense.

San Francisco, March 20 It must i be that Manager Tom Jones ol the Ad Woigast camp has heard of Jack Cur ley's scheme for corralling nil the champions of the different classes and forming a pugilistic wild west show.

"Here's the thing In n nutshell.' said Jones "The suggestion came from Jeffries himself. He has never I quit brooding over whai happened al Reno, and he still harbors the sus picion that he was drugged by some body. "Ho went on the water wagon sev eral weeks hko and -stands to lose heavily In wager? if he tastes booze inside of a year. He has been train ing on the quiet and he is full of the notion that the present day heavy weights are a lot of no-goods' He told me In the presence of his broth er Jack that he believed he could lick the best man In sight at pres ent, and that he had a good mind to hop back into the game. "1 bald to him, 'Why don't you do It, then9' and Jack chipped in with the remark that his big brother was foolish not to take another whack at fighting. We talked the matter over from every angle and Jim told me to go ahead and make whatever announcement I saw fit, tho under standing being that I was to act as his manager if any matches were ar ranged.
