JOHN L. SULLIVAN
TAKEN TO FINAL
Hundreds Crowd Streets to
Watch Funeral Procession
Carry Ring Veteran to
' Calvary Cemetery.
, Boston, Feb. 6. Final tribute to a
great champion was paid today when
the bordy of John L. Sullivan was
buried in Calvary cemetery. In the
crowds .that lined the snow-filled
streets as the casket was borne from
the home of Sullivan's sinter, Mrs.
Annie Lennon, to St. Paul's church,
where the funeral mass was cele
brated, were scores of children bid
ding farewell to their big "pal," whose
watchword was courage and who re
galed them with stories of kings and
presidents he had met.
At the funeral mass were men and
women from every walk of life.
Leaders of the temperance move
ment were there to testify to their
regard for the man who boasted that
his greatest victory was gained when
he conquered drink. Many were
there also whom the former cham
pion had helped in their hours of
need, while neighbors journeyed from
his former home in Abington, where
he died suddenly of heart disease last
Saturday. Nor did the sporting fra
ternity forget their once great idol,
and they came in numbers from far
and near. The burial was in Calvary
at Forest Hills beside the body of
: , f Church Is Filled.
From the home of Sullivan's sister
to St Paul's Catholic church the
funeral procession proceeded through
streets thickly lined with people,
most of them women and children.
On the doorsteps and in the windows
of every house standing on the long
hill up reborn street crowds watched
as the body of the former champion
passed "the scenes intimately associ
ated with his boyhood days. Tfiere
was a tremendous jam about the
church and every seat in the build
ing was filled, with hundreds stand
ing in the aisles and at the rear.
More than half of the attendants
It was much like a big gathering
of neighbors anxious ' to pay tribute
to' the memory of an old friend.
James J. Corbett, who wrested the
championship from Sullivan more
than score of years ago, was not
present. Corbett sent a floral offer
ing and telegraphed his regrets that
he would be unable to come here for
v The Pallbearers.
' In his absence United States Mar
shal John J. Mitchell was substituted
as an active pallbearer. The others
were former Mayor James M. Cur
ley. William Mutdoon, Police Captain
JamesP. Sullivan, Daniel J. McDon
ald, Edward M. Curran, William
Hogarty, Clarence W. Rowley, John
Mahoney and Fire Chief William J.
There were no .honorary bearers.
Ushers at -the church included men
who had been identified with some
of the matches in which Sullivan took
Among the old . fighter's sporting
friends at the church were "Yank"
Sullivan of Syracuse. N. Y.; James
O'Brien of Troy. N. Y.; Thomas Han
ton. Chicago: Willii.ni Hurd. Man-
I Chester, N. H.; Tim Cronin of Law
rence,' Thomas King of Oloucester,
and a ,host of lesser ring lights. Cal
vin Coolidge, lieutenant governor, at
tended as the official representative
jf Sullivan's native state.
'" There was no funeral oration at
the church, as many had expected,
nor was the casket opened.
Hundreds of people who had been
turned away from the church fol
lowed the procession to Calvary cem
etery at Forest Hills, where a multi
tude waited in the bitter cold.
As the funeral party turned home
ward there was a light flurry of snow.
Rut there was not enoueh to leave
in trace upon the grave where John

PRIZE FIGHTS IS
UPHELD IN COURT
New York, Feb. 6. Justice Hen
drick in the supreme court here today
declared the New York state anti
prize fighting law constitutional when
he dismissed a writ of habeas corpus
obtained by a boxer who had been ar
rested for taking part in a bout for
which an admission fee had been
charged. It was claimed the boxer
did not know the audience had paid
to see the exhibition.
"When a man participates in a
sparring match it seems to me quite
reasonable to presume that he must
know whether he is giving the exhibi
tion gratis or whether he receives
compensation," declared Justice Ilcn
drick. If tlu latter, it is only a step
to the presumption that he must know
the sources from which the money U
received. If there is no admission
fee, no ofTeiue is committed. If there
is a fee it is so nearly a part of the
exhibition as to render the participant
amenable to the penalty prescribed.
"Sparring in itself is not inherently
wrong. The legislature has not un
dertaken to declare it so. Nor is
sparring as an exhibition for money
evil in itself. Eut in the judgment of
the legislature it tends to corrupt the
public morals and for that reason it

"Blood will tell" is a saying that
never loses its force, for it is as true
today as it ever was that hereditary
traits for good or for evil are trans
mitted from one generation to an
other. If there has been any imparity in
the blood of your ancestors, you will
not grow to the full physical devel
opment that your body is capable of
nntil your blood has been thoroughly
cleansed and purified of all traces of
impne matter. And you owe it to
yourself to get rid of this handicap

received in Omaha show that plain

the insignificant sum of two bits have
jumped to 90 cents.
Furthermore 'we have heard it sug

a penny a stroke to the Red Cross.
This would be all right for Willie

National league base ball club $50,000,
today declared that if he plays with
the Chicago team next season he must
be paid a salary of $12,000 a year and

denied that he and President Weegh

In connection with the seizure of
Alexander Xevsky monastery, which
occurred yesterday by order of
Madame Kolontay, minister of social
welfare, there was a riot and a sharp
struggle, in which the monks fought
the red guards. One monk, named
Stipetrov, who was wounded, died to
day. The church authorities are arrang
ing a great demonstration in the
Petrograd streets, which the Bol
sheviki leaders are seeking to prevent
on the grounds that it might bring
a clash. The church authorities, how
ever, apparently are determined to
carry out their plan.
The clash of the church with the
Bolsheviki government is approaching
a most acute stage. The p3triarch.
whose anathema is couched in the
strongest language, also has de
manded from the military commis
sion at Mohilev the release of Arch
bishop Gommel and other prelates and
an explanation of their arrest.
When the patriarch's advisers urged
him to revise his anathema so that it
would be less bitter against the Bol

refused, declaring that he was ready
to carry it out to the death. The

Von Kuehlmann Engaged
To German Money Bags
London, Feb. 6. A dispatch to
the Exchange Telegraph from Am
sterdam says Dr. von Kuehlmann,
the German secretary of foreign
affairs, is bethrothed to Frau von
Friedlaenderfuld, who, after Frau
Bertha Krupp von Bohlen und Hal
bach, is reported to be the richest
woman in Germany. Frau von
Friedlaenderfuld is the divorced
wife of the Hon. John Mitford, son
of the late Lord Redesdale.
After declaring that atrocities and
persecutions are increasing in general
and that right and law are disregard
ed, the patriarch says it compels him
to address "to such outcasts of man
kind our menacing word of condemna
tion." "Come to reason," he continues.
"Stop your bloody fratricide. This
work is the work of satan.
"By the power given to us by God,
we forbid you to participate in Christ's
communion. We excommunicate
you. if you still have your Christian
names, if even only by birth you be
long to the Orthodox church. We
pray all the faithful children of the
Orthodox church not to come into
contact Avith such outcasts of man
kind. Throw the evil from among
Ot the persecution of the church,
the patriarch declares:
"The holy communion which
blesses the birth and marriage of

guns, or to humiliation, as in the
case of the Church of Christ, the
Saviour, and the Holy Alexander
Monastery in Petrograd, and the
Pochayeav monastery at Kiev, which
are being .captured by the Godless
doniinators of our time."
Dr. Tikhon has been head of the
Orthodox church virtually since the
overthrow of the emperor. Oppos

Smolny government to remodel the
entire church system along sociologi

expected to exert tremendous in
