THE BIG WRESTLING BOUT What will undoubtedly bo the class- iest wrestling match over seen in Lethbridge is scheduled to come off coniurht in Oliver's Hall at 9.30. when M. Matsuda and Andy McFad- come together to decide the championship of the west in the welterweight division: McFadden who came to Liethbridjxe from Dakota a few weeks back, claims to be the champion of the state he just left, at his xveight. There is every evidence to believe 1 that a high class wrest- J ler from the exhibition he gave he met aotd threw Matsuda at the Eureka theatre t a couple of weeks ago. McFadden on that occasion j proved a great surprise to the Jap j and the latter was not exactly prc- j pared for the strenuous argument he I was up against.

It was" conceded, generally, to -be the fastest fight seen, here and it was easily apparent at the first that the men could not keep up the gruelling contest for fifteen rounds and that a knockout was inevitable in the early stages of the game.

Clean conduct marked the two combatants in .the ring1. They broke clean and were not un- due advantages at any time.

They both were intent on scoring a knock out and were taking all kinds of chances to gain the required punch. The end of this round found the men in a terrific melee with both willing to take and give. The Amer- ican Tvid went to his comer bleeding profusely from the nose. The third round opened up with the same zest as its predecessors. The two antagonists jumped to. the centre of the arena and started in to welt one another unmercifully. Clarke scored a number of -decisive punches and crowded the Kid to the ropes.
