CARPENTIER ADMITS DEMPSEY IS GREAT CHAMPION; TO REST Ringside, Jersey City, July Georges Carpentier took his defeat gamely, and praised Dempsey as a great champion. In his dressing room, after the fight, Carpentier dictated this statement: "I stake my all to win in the second round. I hit him hard, but could not drop him.

I tried again in the third, but a right to my neck seemed to daze me. I do not know how he got through my guard in the fourth. "America should be proud of Dempsey, He is a great champion." Georges returned immediately to Manhasset on the yacht Lone Star. He will rest for three or four days, and probably will receive no visitors until Monday. His manager said "they would announce their future plans to-morrow.

Descamps and Wilson both said that Dempsey's weight and power were too much for Carpentier. AWAIT RESULT OF BEER PROSECUTION TO DECIDE POLICY Police Board Considers Present Trial a Test Case The City Police Commission's beer policy will be based largely upon the present prosecution of the Army and Navy Veterans' Club and will not be finally fixed until that trial has been completed, Mayor Porter, chairman of the Commission, stated to-day. As the case will not proceed until Chief of Folice John Fry returns to Victoria three weeks or so from now, the whole beer question here will remain somewhat obscure for a time. "The beer question offers us considerable difficulty and the Mayor said. "We have the ruling of the Liquor Board that no beer must be sold in clubs, but then there is the question of whether clubs can distribute beer to their members free of charge.

That question, it seems, remains to be solved. The present prosecution of the Army and Navy Veterans' Club probably will determine this matter. Chief Fry went into the Club, of which he member I understand, and was given some beer, but no money was taken over the counter. The case is purely a matter of law. "The idea is to make the prosecution 2.

test case which. of course, will largely determine the policy of the Police Commission on the beer question." MR. MEIGHEN'S CONFERENCE WORDS MAKE LONDON TALK (Continued from page 1.) In a speech at a Dominion Day banquet, Mr. Meighen, following the Duke of Connaught and the Hon. 1 L.

A. David, of Quebec, laid stress upon the exceptional difficulties with which Canada is faced by reason of her biracial population, her special transportation problems and the ing influence which the United States exercises upon her destiny. He then paid tribute to British magnanimity in holding out a steadying hand to support the wavering fabric of European civilization. "That we in Canada have some part in assisting this work is clear," he said, "but must not forget that we represent our own country, whose interests must be in the forefront of our own minds. Unless we do keep Canada's interests to the front we shall fail, not only to serve it, but we shall fail grievously to serve the Empire of which is a part." Unity He admitted the obligations imposed by the necessity Empire unity and said that the selfish interest or viewpoint of any one nation in the British League of Nations must must not be pressed so far as imperil the best and highest interests of the commonwealth.

Concluding with the admission that he did not know what he might have to say if he returned to London ten or fifteen years hence, Mr. Meighen roused considerable merriment by adding that he did not mean if he returned as Prime of Canada. "Probably never that," he Minister, said. "I do not know if that would be my good fortune or not." JAPANESE PACT TO RUN FOR ONE YEAR (Continued from page 1.) Banquet.
