C ARPENTIER ON
RETURN TO PARIS
European Champ Says English
Showed Great Sportsman
Fight in France.
" Paris, Dec. 8. Georges Car
pentier, the French fighter who won
the championship of Europe from
Joe Beckett at London, returned to
Paris Monday evening.
"I have signed nothing. I am
waiting for offers. I want a little
time to think it over," he said.
Seldom has a conquering hero re
turning from a victorious campa'gn,
received such a welcome as did Car
pentier. Fully 15,000 persons were
crowded into the north station,
cheering and singing "The Mar
sellaise." Promoters Pleased.
The French promoters are pleased
that Carpentier has not signed an
agreement of any kind with C. B.
Cochrane, the British promoter. M.
Decoin, manager of the Wonderland
Sporting club of Paris, who on Sat
urday sent a ' cablegram to Jack
Kearns, offering to deposit whatever
amount Jack Dempsey would ask for
a 20-round fight with Carpentier,
on July 14, informed the Associated
Press that he will deposit 1,000,000
francs with the Equitable Trust at
Paris tomorrow to guarantee
Dempsey's end, although the Amer
ican champion has not yet replied to
his message stating his terms.
Lauds British Sportsmen.
Carpentier spoke' highly of the
sportsmanship of the British public,
but added that he was sure Amer
icans would be equally fair. Never-
heless he preferred to meet
Dempsey in France.
"I am glad Dempsey does not ob
ject to coming to France," he said.
"A great show surely can be staged
"Asked what he thought of his
chances with Dempsey, Carpentier
"I understand Dempsey is a great
fighter." , .
Paris last autumn cheered and
showed wonderful enthusiasm on
the visits of royalty, but never with
such spontaniety as in greeting the
fighting champion. Carpentier was
seized by the crowd when alighting
from the train and separated from
Descamps, his manager, and was
temporarily lost in the mad throng.
His right arm was slightly hurtj
"Nothing serious," he informed
the correspondents, "but a boil

BAN JOHNSON ON
WAY TO ATTEND
NEW YORK MEET
American League President
And Five Loyal Owners.
Call Off Chicago
Chicago,' Dec. 8. President Ban
B. Johnson of the American league,
accompanied by five "loyal" club
owners, departed Monday night for
New York to accept the challenge
of the three "rebel" directors and at
tend the meeting called for Wednes
day to settle the contest for the
presidency of the league.
The controversy will be fought out
on the grounds chosen by the minor
ity directors of the league Charles
Comiskey, owner of the Chicago
club; Harry Frazee of the Boston
club, and Colonel Jacob Ruppert,
owner of the New York club. The
decision to attend the New York
meeting was reached, by the five
loyal club owners at a secret meet
ing this afternoon. After the ses
sion President Johnson announced
that the meeting called for Chicago
Wednesday had been tailed off. This
action was taken on 'the advice of
counsel in the belief that the quick
est way to straighten out the tangle
was to compel the opposition to lay
its cards on the table of its own
George W. Miller, counsel for
President Johnson and his associ
ates, said that the majority club
owners did not by their action ad
mit the right of the directorsto call
this meeting, but it was their desire
to compel a showdown.
1 "If the three club owners Messrs.
Comiskey. Ruppert and Frazee met
in New York and the 6ther five in
Chicago," Attorney Miller said,
"there might be further litigation to
embarrass the league. The three di
rectors might set up the elaint;that
their meeting was the legal one, and
not hiving a quorum, might adjourn
and throw the league into endless
"To circumvent this possibility
the majority club Wners decided to
meet the minority on their own
grounds and settle the dispute at
- Meeting Harmonious.
The meeting Monday was not a
protracted one, and at its conclusion
all parties to it maintained that it
was both harmonious and confident.
All five "loyal" clubs were fully rep
resented. Those in attendance were:
B. S. Minor and Clark Griffith of
the Washington club; President Phil
Ball and Business Manager Robert
Quinn of St. Louis; M. Shibe and
Manager Connie Mack of the Phila
delphia club; Frank Marvin of the
Detroit club, and James C. Dunn of
President Comiskey of the Chi
cago Americans, who is aligned with
the faction opposed to Johnson, also
left for New York tonight.
