ORK Copyrurht, 19S6. New Tork Tri heme NEW YORK, March 4. Jack Dempsey will met Gene Turtney in a 12-roxmd no-decision battle for the heavyweight championship of the world at Boyles' Thirty-Acres in Jersey City on Thursday, August 26 or the following day, August 27. Txmney has signed for the match and his contract, countersigned by his manager, Billy Gibson, Ls now in the hands of the promoters of the affair. Dempsey has already given his word that he would accept Turuney's challenge and the .match is rearded as closed. WILLS TO BE CENSURED. When the New York State Boxinj? Commission meets tomorrow afternoon it is probable that an announcement will be made that Ilarry Wills, colored heavyweight and generally considered as the lofrical contender for the heavyweight title, had lost the support of the local boxing; authorities because he went west several months ago and signed articles with some very-vague promoters for a championship contest to be staged next summer at Kenton Harbor or at some other point near Chicago. Tex Rickard will he the promoter of the Jersey City content between Dempsey and Tunney although he was not ready tonight to admit this. It ;s a fact, however, that Rickard has the match signed, sealed and delivered and that it will take place in the big; bowl. Tunney was signed in Florida a neck ago and negotiations with Jack Dempsey were completed in his room at the Hotel Alamac, Tuesday afternoon. Although he denied that he came here in connection with any future contest or the arranging of any bout for the heavyweight cliampion-Mi:p it is known now that Dfinpsiy's nit hTf wa.s for the sole purpose of concluding arrangements for his meet-in- with Gene Tunney. STONEHAM BIDDING. Charles A. Stoneham. owner of the New York Giants and proprietor of the Polo Grounds is bidding for the match, and is negotiating with Dempsey through Frank Flournoy, former Speaking About Himself, Firpo Tosses Boquets About Recklessly Bl K'OS. AITtKS. Marrh 4. Lni An-jrel Firpo said IoHaj that there is nn trntb in the rnmor (hat he will definitely retire from the ring after his, bout with F.rniinio Snalla. the Italian heavyweight here on April 3. On the contrary, he said he i looking forward to a tour of Canada and the t'nited Stale in the near future. He pointed out that he was never more fit than today, with his weight at 224 pound., which is a mere eig-ht poanda aoove fighting weight, and adding- that he i only 30 yearn of age. doe not Mnoke or totjeb alcoholics and connlderff he Hat. 10 pood years of boxing ahead of him plenty of time to proye he is not a buck nutriber. l-lrpo claims that since, he has pot himself in the hand of a competent trainer, he is a better man now than he was hrn he fa-ed Jack Dcrnpsey. CLASSY TEAOT BIGGEST FEATURE K BUGS' TCD9n Drury and Conacher's Passing at Goal Plays Prominent Part in Listless Win Recorded By Cleghorn Clan; Milks Gets Four Goals Unassisted; Adam s Also Stars. BRUINS WIN OUT OVER MAROONS; SENATORS VANQUISH NEW YORK By SAM K. SrGnKE. Itib Milks was fighting mad last night. And it is a good thing: for the Pirates that he was. Otherwise the Cleghorn crew might have had a much harder time trimming the St. Pats. The Pittsburgh icers went into the combat with the full knowledge that they must set back the Toronto lads if they were to stay up within striking distance of the third place Bruins. Despite this incentive, the Pirates went about their work very listlessly. They know well that Toronto, according to the dope, should be defeated, so they didn't bother putting on full speed. Fortunately, Ilib remembered Odie Cleghorn 's admonition to win. so he piled up four goals, three of which were unassisted. The final score was Pirates 7, St. Pats 2.

Major Rupert lC-wis won the event, ahich was wrtDeued by a lars crowd. matchmaker for Tex Rickard. Flournoy left for Chicago this afternoon with Ptoneham's final bid. This proposition, which will be turned down by the champion, calls for a bout at the Polo Grounds some time in August with Tunney and it provides a guarantee of J.iOO.000 for Dempsey. It was as the ageut of Stoneham that Flournoy went to Florida a few weeks ago although it was generally supposed that he went there to act in behalf of K;ckard. Fiournoy talked witJi Tunney and with Billy Gibson. Gene's manager, and is understood to have arrived at some sort of a tentative agreement for a bout with Dempsey. Rickard'a sudden departure for Florida was decided upon when he learned of the purpose of Flournoy's trip. Rickard started out with the purpose of beating his former matchmaker to the goal and he has apparently succeeded. AND Tilt) FIGHT WAS ON. The game got under way as usual with the Garden orchestra playing the National Anthems. The Pirates were still standing at attention when the puck was fated by Keff-rec Dave Richey. Ilib beat Adams to the drop I and like a flash he was off. Dye. how-i ever, snitched the rubber from the ; speedy Pirate center and was well in 'on Conache and Smith before the lo-calrf awakened to the fact that the i game had started. Conny nonchal-i antly flipped the disc away from Dye, then leaned back on bis stick again. while Darragh picked up the puck and carried it way. This sort of thing seesawed back and forth until Hib got peeved and knocked the rubber out from a scrimmage near the Pirates' net. In attempting to pa.ss it, he shot off side and the play was recalled. Again beating Adams to the drop. Hib picked up the loose puck, tricked his way past the St. Pats' center, who incidentally is one of the smartest centers in pro hockey, and set sail. Like a flash he rode past Cain and j McCaffery straight in on Dye and Day. Cleverly overskating the puck, he made as if to reverse himself, then retrieved the rubber, pulled Roach out of the net and dropped in the first All in Vain! PITTSBURGH"". Worters G . .
