It was one of (he most interesting games seen here this season. Both sides took a great many chances, and the result was some fine open play, and a good deal of sensational running; work. Both teams made numerous chang- es in their line-ups, and thus kept the players fresh, which added to the zest of the game. Hamilton was without (he aid of their star punter, Lockie, of the Alerts; but Toronto did not have Gall, so they contented them Late John T. Brush, Of New York Nationals punting for the rugby football union team this year. The absense of any star players helped to make It a run- ning game. Craig, of the Alerts, and Whale, o the Argonauts, were absent, because of injuries. Lawson was playing right up to his best form, and he made three of Toronto's touches, two of i hem by long runs, and the third by a fine piece of line-smashing. llaynard was also back in good shape once more. He and Hal de Crutehy worked one of the nicest combinations through a broken field seen here this season, going over for a try. Manson, the sensational inter- mediate of the Hamilton Rough Rid- ers, more than made good in senior company, and promises to be very much in the limelight next year. Me- ICIvey, Calenby and Isbister. of the Ti- mers, were the most conspicuous men on tile Hamilton line-up. mne so i.ney contented tnera- selves with the Upper Canada Col- Rifvrlp Rirlpr Frnm MPT lege lad, Hal de Crutchy, who was D1CyCle rafler from Mai of the Globe Entered-Mak- Fast Time WHITE-HOPES Very Rare Species Bill McNaughton, Airs His Ex- peri Views of the Heavy- weight Pugilistic Situation San Francisco, Dec.

His latest victim was Young Savior, the Indianapolis light- weight, for whom not so very long ago ;reat things wore predicted iu the lighting line. couple of mouths ago when Britton and Saylor met in Boston and tbe latter was so badly worsted that the newspapers accused him of fouling to avoid being put way, 1 stated in this column that lirilton had demonstrated that he was he better boxer and outclassed the .ndianapolis lad. The latter's man agcr took exception to my remarks and in a letter to the press intimated hat I was prejudiced and that Saylor had been given the worst of it by the referee, or words to that effect. no desire to rub it. in, but in justice to myself 1 wish to say that I do not allow friendship or prejudice to in- llnenee me where a matter of com- parative skill of boxers i.s concerned. Al thi! time I was convinced 'liritton j was tho better iimn am] frankly said j.-o. The result of the Davlon battle the utlier niijlu proves 1 bad the boys sized mi right. For some reason Packey Macfarland maintains a discreet silence when the subject of boxing Jack Britton is men- tioned. Can it be that the marvellous- ly clever Packey has outgrown the "mis-fits' 'class in which he and Brit- ton have long been ornaments. .Mac has several times been on the verge of gettlug a crack at the lightweight championship, only lo have something interfere and upset the plans, and now when the title has changed hands and there is a probability, that the weight limit is to be raised, It would be hard luck indeed if he has grown too heavy to make the 135 pound mark. I know- that Packey has been piling up weight for a long time and the process of tak- ing off the poundage became a great task. At the same time I think the matter of a few pounds one way or the other would make little difference so far as Britton is concerned. At any rate, we would like to hear from Packey about the proposed Hritton match or friends will begin to be- lieve the report that he- intends lo re- tire from tin: rliiB. while the knockers ill boldly assert he Is afraid to lake i chance with the skillful Uritton.

Palzer is matched to box the winner of the Jim Flynn-Luther McCarthy bout, which is to be held at Tom Mc- Carey's Veruon arena next Tuesday. The big fellow has been suffering- from a very bail cold, but it is thought the milder climate of Southern California will speedily cure him of the ailment and allow two or three weeks of hard work. NEW TEAM RACING DISTACE EVENT Regarding the Flynn-JlcCarthy bat- tle, it looks to me that the veteran Flynn ought to bring home the bacon. Unless, of course McCarthy is vastly improved over his New York form. The rules prevailing In the west should help Jim, as his long suit is n-fightlng. McCarthy, I think, is too green for the Pueblo man. Palzer should prove more of a match for His style is of the saint! rush- ng variety and he is no stranger to clow range lighting, as O'Roiirke has mil him sper-lalizn in that department of the game if training camp.
