McAuliffe and Slavin were arraigned in court yesterday the inspector of police who made the arrests justified them by slating that the proposed contest was not to be a mere boxing match, but a genuine prize fight. He produced the articles of agreement, and pointed nut that they provided for an unlimited number of rounds with four- oitneu gloves. The gloves which were to be used lust night hail teen on exhibition in the of a sporting newspaper establishment, ami were evi.'.euily con- siderably smaller than ordinary four-ounce gloves. They were made very thin around the knuckles, and would not hinder severe punishment being ium'i ted. The secretary of the Ormonde club de- posed the gloves were the same as those The affair waste be strictly a boxing contest, governed by Queensberry rules. No breach of the law was intended. The police had been in- cited in this matter by a jealous rival club. The inspector rejoined that nobody out- side of the police authorities had known that the warrant was issued. The magistrate directed the police to produce the gloves before lie would pass upon the illegality of the contest. Mean- time, if thi! prisouers ventured to fight they would be severely dealt with.

Crown Counsel Osier ilnished his presentation of the crown's cose against lilrchnll at i. m. yesterday, and immediately called William Mi-Donald us the first witness. iIcDonnld said he became ncquainted with Mrchall when the latter came to him as a arm pupil from England. Birchall hen known A. Somerset. He stopped A McDonald's farm one day, then went to Voodstock, saying he was not brought up .o such work. McDnnald's evidence threw considerable lew light on the pupil farming business. Ie admitted that he was agent at Wood- lock for Ford, Rathbun England, who sent pupils to place on farms, the armer getting bonus and the agent 86. The farmer got half the amount at he end ot the lirst month if a pupil was atisfied and the balance at the end of six months. McDonald said he flrst knew Nevelle H. ]icthall when the latter came out as a arm pupil five or six years ago, and saw lira last on Sunday in Woodstock. The names of pupils placed by McDonald were jiven by him no Jnraes Young, Hertlook Wheeler, Long, Pardoe, Dud- ey, F. A. Somerset. Witness said Dudley was placed by him i Picthall'-i farm, but stayed only-a month, and the bonus was paid just he same, hnlf going to Dudley, who went o Detroit, committed robbery imd fled to Niagara Fulls. McDonald contradicted timself a good deal, and. was given a cru- rittl cross-examination by Bluckstock, onnsel for Biruhail; He admitted ford, Hn-hbuu Co. wrote that Birchall complained that McDonald was windfing Kiigllsh farm pupils, lie said Birchall borrowed from him considerable noney and repaid all bui Raymond Pelly, tbe young English man whoaccompanied t he Birchall. tenwell pnrty to this country, followed, Ic told his arranycnientK with Birchall to inter into a [unniiuj partnership iu Jiuiuda; said told him he had a arm near the Falls ot two hundred acres, ived in good English style, kept En- ;lish servant, had a good brick house ami me of thcstableswaslighted by electricity; ilso siwakiug of his overseer as a man lame.l McDonald and two brothers named Peacock who worked on tlie farm.
