That this was based on something tangible was borne out on monday night last when Monson failed to get into the ring under his agreement with or t j. Hobby. To contest his title of middleweight Champion of Australia with his challenger. Pud Segar. Most of. The regular habit uses of the Unley stadium did not put in an appearance because of the More or less authentic information that was Given out during monday afternoon which was in effect that Monson would not get into the ring to fight for his title. There was a Small crowd in attendance arid when the doors of the stadium were thrown open it was announced an behalf of the management that should there be no fight patrons would have their Money refunded to them. Later in the evening this was altered it being stated that the nominal charge of 1/, 2/, and 3/ would be charged for. The evening s entertainment and this met with the approval of those present who received a rebate when leaving the building. _ Segar at the appointed time entered the ring. Insofar As Segar was concerned he fulfilled his part of the agreement. He got on the scale and weighed out in the presence of or. L. J. Pellew and other officials tipping. The beam at list. When Monson failed to make his appearance it was then announced from the ringside by the official referee of the stadium or. Son Reynolds that through Monson s non appearance. Segar now claimed the australian middleweight championship. If this is the Case then the state middleweight title will revert to Monson from whom Segar had not so Long since wrested it those in attendance when this announcement was made took it in a sporting manner and sent up a round of cheers for Segar who at the present time is right at the top of his form and incidentally very popular with boxing fans of this state. Sis Gar then boxed three rounds with Albert Lloyd and pleased All his admirers with his display. As in usual circumstances the prelims were gone through and to make up the night s entertainment an eight round contest was staged Between Bruce Day 9.6and Bob Leslie 9.0and after a fast and even contest the former gained the verdict. In the other prelims the first one Between Clavell and Goombs was the most interesting and aroused a Good Deal of excitement in the last round when they stood toe to toe and traded punches to each others head in monotonous regularity. When the Gong went son Reynolds gave the Only and popular decision of a draw. So appreciative were the spectators of the lads showing that they floored something like �2 10/ for the lads. Archie Bailey 9.6and Sam Lawn 9.2 slogged at each other for four two minute rounds at the end of which Bailey got the decision. Fox s easy Victory Over Spargo. Victorian s below form showing the fourth encounter of Bert Spargo 9.2 with the former British featherweight Champion Joe Fox 9.1 attracted a fair House Only at the stadium in Melbourne last saturday night. To that Date Fox had won the Ruber but Spargo s Brilliant recovery of form against the negro Bell a month ago gave Prospect of the score being levelled. In the first few exchanges however it was evident that this was one of Spargo s off nights and that he was in for a rough handling by the Crafty englishman. After the third round in which Spargo came within an Ace of being knocked out. Fox practically did As he pleased and his pleasure was patently a Points Victory and not a summary ending. He let Spargo off so clearly that it can Only be surmised that he mras feeling generous towards an honoured foe who for the time being was below form. In the Early rounds Spargo appeared impotent at Long Range particularly in respect to Fox s lefts which prodded unchecked into the victorian s face. Spargo made no attempt to Brush them aside or pick them off in his usual manner and seemed unable to the blows As he stood blinking and worried heavy footed and an easy sitting target for Fox s leads. With his queer inimitable shuffle the englishman came a Spargo in the second round with a Clever feint slipping the right cleanly to the jaw five times before Spargo beat him Back with a sweeping swing to the left ear. For snapped the right twice again to the Chin and flicked a series of lefts unchecked to the face As Spargo retreated. Something must have been radically wrong with Spargo s sense of timing and distance for him to have suffered Fox to Knock him Back with left leads so Easly As 111 the opening of the third when the victorian s head went Back .l2in. Under the Impact of a Short stabbing Lead. Lashing out desperately. With the right Spargo landed a glancing blow Over Fox s left shoulder but almost simultaneously Fox connected v with a right Cross that nearly finished the bout. Spargo As badly rattled As he has been for years floundered perceptibly and stood automatically weaving his guard in the Centre of the ring while Fox deliberately stood away and gave him time to recover. Pulling himself together Spargo rallied to the attack with a couple of swings that landed on ribs and Elbow but backed away before a series 01 stabbing leads. In the fourth round Fox won every Point coolly out boxing his opponent without pressing his advantage. Stung to desperation by his inability to Parry Fox s left Spargo roused the House with an outburst of Energy in the fifth in which he landed a resounding left to the ribs and knocked Fox half off his balance with a right on the ear followed by a similar swing before Fox could Clinch. Here in the infighting Spargo appeared More confident but Fox using his arms to lever out of position., kept Spargo s doubles confined almost entirely to rib in Ching while he jarred Home Nasty Little jolts to the Back of the Neau. A solid right seemed to rattle Spargo again just before the Gong but Fox was beaten to a Savage left to the Side of the head As he moved Back to the Centre. Crouching Low Down the englishman staggered Spargo with a solar plexus right and hammered Home two More jolts to the jaw As Spargo smothered up in the referee s Corner. Continue Fily checked by left leads Spargo Stop Ped a couple of rights on the Point and was then knocked full length on the floor by a straight left thai caught him unbalanced. He was up immediately into a Clinch and a moment later fought Fox Back with a Trio of swings to the body finishing with a great right to the ribs As the Gong went. Standing off and hitting cleanly Fox took matters quietly in the seventh Spargo was attacking with plenty of weight in Hir swings but missing repeatedly. He rallied again half Way through the eighth Landing solid right swings to the head. A punishing solar plexus right steadied Spargo again in the ninth and towards the end twisting in the clinches against a Tattoo of jolts to the same Mark he turned and suffered a quartet of solid blows on the Back ribs. Uppercuts beat Spargo badly in the tenth and a steady play of lefts checked him in the eleventh. In less than a minute before the Gong Fox prodded no fewer than 14 lefts clean to the face finishing with a right Cross that knocked Spargo off his balance a the Gong. Spargo picked up a trifle Between rounds 12 to 15, inclusive., but his heavy body swings made Little of Tio impression on Fox who was Content to keep Well ahead in the scoring by easy leading. Spargo won the thirteenth in which for the first time he beat the englishman to the of and and battered solidly at his ribs. In the sixteenth Spargo was Well nigh worn out and More bruised about the face than for Many years. Although Spargo has fought no fewer than 40 fights in Melbourne in the last four years he has rarely been marked. Fox had his Mouth bleeding freely towards the end while Spargo s left ear was swollen to twice its usual size. Fox was withholding the use of his right a lot in the closing rounds Only slipping it across now and again when Spargo got out of hand in his rallies. O11 the night Fox was far too Good for the victorian and caul 1 be credited with having Avon 16 out of the 20 rounds leaving Spargo the Winner of the thirteenth and three rounds even scoring. Whybrow knocked out. At the Brisbane stadium on saturday night last Eddie Lynagh 9.9 knocked out Harry Whybrow 9.12 in the fifteenth round. Lynagh was the better Man from the beginning punishing his opponent heavily in the face and body. Whybrow showed extraordinary lameness and ability to withstand punishment but he gradually weakened until t lie fifteenth round when he went Down from a left to the jaw and an almost simultaneous right to the body. He gamely tried to Rise but his legs refused to perform their office. A Marquis on gambling. A plea for the tote. The late Marquis of Queensberry father of the of boxing who will be remembered As having once paid a visit to Australia in the Long Long ago once gave his opinion of betting which is Worth reprinting it seems to be a popular impression that sport must necessarily be associated with gambling. This is not so. Gambling is not by any Means necessary to sport and Many sportsmen and prominent owners of racehorses never made a bet in their lives and follow sport in All its branches for the pure love of the game. Of course in racing it is practically impossible to eliminate gambling entirely or rather the backing of horses to win. Racing is a business the same As any Ether by iness and owners in Many cases must make their stable pay. And for the life of me i cannot the difference Between putting Money on an animal that has Cost you an enormous lot of Money to rear and train and buying a Large amount of mining Stock in someone else s mine or for that matter of the insuring risks on lives and ships. After All in Plain English an insurance company gambles on life Ana risks on a business basis just the same As the owner of a Derby horse puts Money on his horse in the Hope of its winning and recouping him for some of his outlay. I think France has got betting Down to its proper level. The totalisator system there is absolutely perfect. No one can Hurt himself As every bet must be made in ready Money and you bet wit the government so your Money is Safe. A certain percentage of the Gross receipts is devoted to charitable institutions and. The balance Given to the advancement of scientific horse Breeding. In England there is a Large amount of betting on football matches but it is strictly illegal and mostly conducted from agencies in Holland and Switzerland. I altogether disapprove of betting on football. But the Plain fact is that people will Gamble in some form or another. If they can t bet on horses they will bet on wheat or Oats or Coal or hogs and where is the difference f think what k government ought to do is to legalise it in some form As it is done in France and then half the evils Are swept away. In Italy Public gambling is conducted by the government in every department in the orm of weekly lotteries perfectly lir and perfectly managed so that the poorer classes can have their Little Gamble of a sum As Low As l believe even 10 cents and it Lave a Chance of winning quite a Large referee declares no fight j at the contest at broken Hill on saturday night last Between Dave Palmer and Pat Gleeson. A very unsatisfactory ending was the the eighth round Palmer claimed have been hit Low. The referred or. Reardon who was not satisfied called on or. Dobbin to make an examination. Or. Dobbyn could find no Marks of a foul blow. The referee then declared it no fight and i left it to the boxing committee to Deal with.

The series of successes achieved in England recently by Charles John Smirke the 17-year-old jockey discovered two years ago by Stanley Wootton at whose stables at Epsom Smirke is apprenticed has aroused great interesting in the racing world. One saturday recently. Smirke whose apprenticeship still has three years to run., steered ragout to Victory in the chief race at Windsor. It was the fourth race the boy had won during the week. On the tuesday he won the Leamington Handicap on the thursday the Derbyshire Handicap and on the Friday won the big event on Pom Rae to Yale at vim door. Smirke is altogether an exceptional boy and it looks As though he be Tup of the list Stanley Wootton told a daily chronicle representative. He May turn out o of another Frank Wootton. He is mad on racing and studies the methods of older jockeys closely in order to learn the game. He was recommended to me by a Friend and i liked the look of the boy so much that i took him on. He is very Clever. And Wei fitted p sic ally for Wootton denied a statement that owners have gladly paid �200 for Smirke s services for one i Ace. He has eared As much As �100 for one race Wootton but his usual fee is round about �25." Smirke is the son of a London tradesman. A racing correspondent writes of him Charlies John Smirke the jockey of the moment is one of the great discoveries by Stanley Wootton. Few outside Treadwell House knew of Charley until two years ago and now he is., without doubt our Foremost lightweight rider. Last season he was criticised for being reckless but this i put Down to Youthful enthusiasm. He certainly does not spare dash and now tha he has cultivated judgment of Pace he has few equals at his weight. Smirke is a Little fellow who indulges in boxing As a pastime. He is a bit useful too. With the gives. Boxing As a business. An anglican Clergyman the Rev. A. C. Williams talks interest edly on boxing boxing is one of the Manly arts. It teaches men Good manners self control honesty and clean living. It helps to keep Young men in the straight path and makes them sound in mind and body. Boxing is the greatest enemy of intemperance for its practice gives men strength of mind to withstand temptation besides building up the body and helping to fit men for the. Battle of life. Boxing is a Fine a splendid pastime the profession of boxing is an honorable occupation. Nothing can be said or written against it when properly and fairly conducted parents should engraft the love of boxing in the hearts of their children. So that in the years to come they might be better men women. So Long As boxing is free from dishonesty in intention it is not for me or any one else to say that it should not take place.
