The two banking: Institutions named In the schedule were the People's bank cl Uast Alton, and the Smithboro bank ot Smithboro. It is thought that the total liabilities of the two instituions v ill amount to JSOO.OOO, with assets running half that amount. Both banks are p r n a t e institutions.

C llunday 1165.000 worth v-itn doubtful security. William L.orl- imr also owes the bank $165,000 on open account, according to the schedules. PUT ASSETS TOO HIGH.

' · Niagara Falls, Ont, June 27--Some of the principals to the mediating conference here began to lose "hope tonight that General Carranza ever would permit his representatives to participate in the proposed informal conferences with the Huerta delegates for the solution of Mexico's internal problems. No word came to any of the mediators today as to Carranza's intentions and skepticism began to manifest Itself, especially when news dispatches from Monterey showed that not only was a telegraphic communication .with the Constitutionalist chief in excellent condition but thatt he had spent the day in amusements, The Impression here is that while the Constitutionalist representatives in Washington with whom the mediators are informally communicating say they are desirous of b r i n g i n g about the meeting, General Carranza t h i n k s otherwise and the m i l i t a r y successes of his troops probably will Increase his self-confidence and independence.

Paris, June 2T-- Jack Johnson, heavyweight champion fighter, tonight retained the title by defeating Frank Moran of Pittsburgh in a 20 round contest on points. There was plenty of hard hitting on the part of Johnson, but not a single knockdown or anything that looked like a finishing blow. JOHNSON BLOODLESS. Moran's face was bleeding from cuts on the nose and under the left eye: Johnson showed no marks Towards the end of the fight the crowd jeered a good deal at some of the tactics of Moran who hung frequently on Johnson to save himself. When the gong rang Referee Carpentier immediately announced Johnson as winner. MORAN GAME. Moran was game and stubborn. He did most of the leading and although disapproval was shown of gome of Mfe tactics toward the end. he made many friends. Johnson's superior skill and his effective uppercutting wore down his opponent and won the fight which at times seemed rather amateurish. Terrific uppercuts, on which Johnson had relied In many of his previous battles, were again brought into play on his y o u n g adversary, who was unable effectively to block them. They weie repeatedly sent to Moran's Jaw when he least expected them and several times with such force that the Pittsburgher was sent wabbling Among the crowd in the great amphitheater were several hundred women in handsome gowns, applauding. Some of the women were titled personages of note. WHITE WIFE APPLAUDS. Johnson's white wife occupied a pi eminent position, wearing as many d.jmonds as most of the ladies. She cried out shrilly from time to time: "Hit him daddv' "Come along pop! "Now then Jack let him have another!" Gloved hands Joined in the applause that rang through the b u i l d i n g as the two gladiators struggled for the su- premacv. INTERNATIONAL CROWD. It was an ama2ing:ly International ciowd. Spencer Eddy, former Ame r i- can minister to Argentina sat near the ringside. Three feet behind him sot the Duke of Westminster, while not far away were Louis Barthou, former premier of France, the Marquis De Lafayette, the Duke D'Uzes and other titled personages. Here and there were dalk faces, some of them negroes from Senegal, Dahomey and West Indies, while other dark faces Included Prince Dhuleep SInds of India and Omer Sultan Pasha of Egypt. Several hundred Americans were In the best Beats. They Included Mortimer Schiff, Richard Croker, Jr., Osdon Mills, Herman B. Duryea and Alfred Vanderbllt. JOHNSON BREAKS RECORD. After the fight Johnson pointed out that no champion of his age ever defended the title and won. (He Is 3fi years old). He appeared l i t t l e the worse for tho battle. "They thought I couldn't last twenty rounds," he said. "Well, didn't I? I am satisfied. I have done nothing for two years except ride fast. In another six weeks I will be ready to box anybody. PRAISES MORAN. "Moran? He has a real hard punch with either hand. I know, because I have been there. If they always landed, there isn't anybody who could stand up against him. He is a jjood boy. all right, and I enjoyed the fight. Carpentier was a fine referee." MORAN CLAIMS DRAW. Moran after the fight said"At the worst It should have been a draw. I was the aggressor t h r o u g h o u t the whole twenty rounds and I was not hurt. The cut over my eye is only an old one reopened; It was received in training. I believe I had the best of nractically every round. "The blow that really h u r t was on my nose and for this Johnson was warned. That stopped my breathing and sent the blood trickling down my threat. That was the only real h u r t Johnson gave me." TIME. Time was called at 10:3* ROUND ONE. Round 1--Moran f o u n d an opening and landed first lo the stomach and head. Johnson succeeded In landing on Moran's jaw They mixed it hard. Johnson landing on the PlttsbiJrgher's stomach. End rounfl. TWO. Round 2--Moran forced the fighting, but Johnson managed to get some hard uppercuts to Moran's jaw. Moran in return landed hard on Johnson's head. Johnson sent a light left hook to Molan's cheek. M Vlocenne, the chief manager of the fight, says the rules are those of the International Federation, which do not allow holding and are a slight modification of the Queensberry rules. THREE Round 3--Johnson gave Moran several terrific u p p e r c u t s to the jaw while Moran responded with several jolts to the negro's stomach. Johnson landed a hard jolt on Moran's eye and followed with hard knocks on the (Continued on Page 5, BOGGS AND ENOCHS ARE NOMINATED For Circuit Judge In Sixth District-Both Urbana Men--Vote Is Light.

Judge E. J. Hawbaker of Mon- tlcello Is the Progressive party candidate. He had no opposition. ARE URBANA MEN. The two victorious men are Urbana citizens. The two defeated men, Judge Shonkwiler, Republican, and James Hicks, Democrat, are residents of Montlcello But Monticello citizens have some solace. Judge Hawbaker is also a resident of that fair town. Mr. Boggs carried four counties. DeWitt, Douglas, Moultrie and Champaign, the last, hio home county, by a majority of 1,555. Piatt county rallied to Its son. Judge Shonkwiler, giving him a majority of 613, hut It was not enough to overcome the lead given Mr. Boggs by Champaign county. Judge- Shonkwiler also carried Macon county. VOTE LIGHT. The vote was exceedingly light, probably only one man out of ten or twelve voting. There wre 7,538 votes cast with about a, dozen small precincts to hear from. The Republicans polled almost twice as many votes as did the Democrats a-nd Progressives togethei, as follows: Republicans--1,9 S3. Democrats--2,30«. Progressives--299. ENOCHS STILL, LEADS. The race for the Democratic nomination wa s especially close, and should the remaining few small precincts in Moultrie, DeWltt and Douglas counties he found to have gone unanimously to Mr. Hicks, the latter would be nominated. But that is considered hardlv likely. With those to hea.r from. Mr. Enochs Is In the lead sixty votes And he was r u n n i n g ahead of Mr. Hicks in most of tthe precincts in Moultrie and Douglas counties. Mr. Enochs, late Saturday night, a f t e r caiefui consldeiatlon, estimated his majority over Mr. Hicks at from 75 to 100. Mr. Enochs carried three counties and Mr. Hicks three.
