The Mohawk hockey team demon strated its ability to "come back" last evening by taking the portage Lake peven to camp by the score of 4 to 3 at the Olaciadom. Monette of Hancock appeared before the net for the win ners and strengthened that aggrega tion fully 25 per cent, stopping many difficult shots. Trcglown was played at coverpolnt. The Ice was fast and the contest was witnessed by a larc crowd, many of whom were from Calu met. Fourteen minutes after play, a com bination by Trathen and Cicotte gave Houghton its first goal. Trathen mak ing the shot. A few minutes later the home team tied the score on a com bination by Bateninn and St. George, the former shooting. There was no more scoring In the first half but two minutes after the opening of the sec ond, Kxley scored for the visitors on an Individual rush. After that, Mo hawk had the better of the play throughout and Hognn soon tied the score on a long shot from center Ice. A Hogan-F.ateman combination gave Mohawk Its third goal and shortly af terward, Uksila shot the fourth on a combination with Tirewer and Hate man. Mohawk protested against Houghton's third goal, claiming It was made from an offside, but the com plaint was not allowed by the referee. Several Mohawk and Houghon men were penalized for tripping and other minor offenses. At one time there were only five Mohawk men on the 1ce. Sev eral Houghton men were guilty of loafing during the latter part of the last half. Mohawk clearly outplayed Portage Lake In combination work last evening, linteman, St. George and 1'ksila being the stars of the 'even ing. For Houghton, Cicotte and Striuid played wonderful hockey and Trathen made a good showing. Monette's splen did showing will doubtless result In his being retained by Mohawk for the remainder of the season. Referee Shields was assisted by Michael Carrlgan as Judge of Play last evening.

MILLIONAIRES MAY BOX. Warren Barbour Issues Challenge To Lord Decies' Brother. New York, Feb. 21. Learning by authentic newspapers of the knockout In the boxing ring of Tony Drexel. Jr., by the Hon. "Bobble" Beresford, brother of Lord Decies, recent amateur heavy weight champion of England, Warren Barbour, tlu millionaire ihoxer who has won the national American championship and the Metropolitan championship, has challenged the Hon. ' Bobbie" to a try with himself. There Is also a possibility that A. J. Drexel Piddle and Beresford may meet In the squared circle. Mr. Diddle intimated at Philadelphia that he Intends challenging the aristo cratic British visitor, and friends who have seen him In action feel sure he will let no titled Britisher come over here slapping the Drexel-Blddle fami ly and get away wjth It. The fact that tho Hon. "Bobble" used to be amateur heavyweight champion of England, It Is argued, would not fease "Tony" Diddle, who has, It is a matter of pub lic record, elevated the game by mix ing It up with Jack O'Brien In pink fifchtf.

Well, that only Increased my deter mination to show the people they were wrong. Just as they have been wrong about me many times before, and I began to get myself in condition. I think that I have succeeded. Anyway, I never felt better In my life than I feei now. I am willing to fight nny man of my class in tho world. Jack Johnson is the man I want to fight. and I have $10,000 In real money to post fe)r a match. "However, most of the American people are 'from Missouri, and they have to 'be shown'. Therefore, I am ready to 'show them. So, In order to convince the public that Kid McCoy is sincere and nas come nack. l am ready to take on the next best man In the heavy-weight class, namely Al Kaufman. I will sign articles to fight him any number ef rounds, preferable to a finish, the fight to take place within tho next CO days, and I will bet $.",000 that I defeat him. That Is how sure I am that I am already 'back'. "All I want is a chance. I have studle'd the heavyweight division thoroughly, and honestly I can't con- vlnce myself that any one of them has the c lass that the public demands In a real champion." With the- Jim Steward-Kid McCoy bout still within memory's reach this statement brings to mind those welsh rarebit dreams. Still, If Seiby really wants to come back well, "on with the dance." DOC REISLING RETIRES. Game Twirler of Nationals is Through With Baseball. Washington, Feb. 21. "Ioc" P.els- Ung has retired from baseball. The veteran pitcher of tho Nationals whose gameeness and willingness to work for the best Interests of his team made him one of the most popular men on the team hist season, has probably stood on the pitcher's rubber for the last time. Kelsling says that he does not care to rIvc any reasons for his retirement It has been stated that his practice as a dentist Is such that he does not think It will pay him to leave It to play baseball during the summer.

Dr. Charles W. Eliot, president emeritus of Har vard university, has Joined the runks of those who believe that the present puritanical laws which work to re strain baseball and other amateur sports and out-of-door games on Sun day should be repealed or amended. He will speak in favor of a liberal law be fore a committee of the Massachusetts legislature next week. "I am In favor of freeing the minor sports from the restrictions of the present Sunday laws," said Dr. Eliot today when asked to lend his aid to the movement. "I am opposed", con tinued Dr. Eliot, "to following the carrying on of theaters on Sunday or moving picture shows or big profes sional games which attract thousands of spectators with an admission charge." Dr. Eliot is now concerned with the framing of a measure which will give entire freoehun on the first day of the week for the enjoyment of all man ner of outdoor sports, for the wit nessing of which no charge shall be made.

"I said, 'Mother, little Adrian Is go ing to pitch this aftcrnoen, and Judg ing from the way he has been going he is some pitcher.' "Pat Dougherty hit the first ball I pitched for two bases.

I'LL JCBUtJ THE SKINCLE.J ON TOP of T MCwJC AND COUNT THEM TO E IF AN CHARGE UNFAIR RING TACTICS ENGLISH FIGHTERS SAID TO RE SORT TO FOULING IN ORDER TO WIN BOUTS SOME INSTANCES. England, which Is supposed to be the home of fair play in sporting mat ters, seem to have something on your Uncle Sam In the matter of mean little tricks resorted to by Its fighters. In New York, recently, one "Digger" Stanley, champion of English bantams and candidate for the world's title, fought a rising young American fight er, Frankie Burns. The latter lacks ling experience and some of the fight ing generalship of his foe; but his In sistent attacks began to do up the Briton, who lost his temper. There upon, says dispatches, the spectators were treated to one of the foulest ex hibitions that ever a referee permitted to continue. Stanley "butted," "heel ed," "elbowed" and hit while holding to such an extent that the evening's mystery was the referee's failure to disqualify him. Over "on the other side" some time ago Freddie Welsh fought a fellow countryman for the British champion ship. Inscriptions of the fight Indicate that Welsh fouled so repeatedly that he at last tormented the mild-mannered Jim Driscoll Into retalllatlng and the fight was lost then and there for "inside" work. In this country few scrappers resort to underhanded tactics. Battling Nel son Is a great "butter." He has wire hair and beard and he was wont to scratch his opponent's face until It was raw. But he never hit while holding, he never brought back his' elbow to his opponent's Jaw after missing a swing and he played fair In all serious matters. Referees have taught light ers In America that they cannot get away with that sort of thing and few of the scraps that are down In the record books as "lost on fiul" are for continued nagging. They ore, in a ma jority cases, for a blow struck below the legal line delivered accidentally in the heat of contest. Probably the lowest of all tricks which Stanley Is said to have turned on his recent opponent was to hit him a succession of blows when his guard was clown following the sounding of the gong. The referee passed this, as having been done in the excitement of fighting and as having, fortunately, caused little damage to Burns. The Yale University rowing authori ties have hired Fred Plaistcd, the vet eran oarsman, as assistant coach to John Kennedy.
