THE S1L VER GRILL BRITISH BOXING IDOL VERY DECISIVELY DEFEATED BY PETE HERMAN; 17TH ROUND DOES IT American Bantam Scores Stops Boat JUNIORS OFF TO PINCHER CREEK LONDON. Jin. Herman at New Orleans, former bantam- weight champion ot tbe world, to- xtignt decisively defeated Jimmy Wilde, flyweight champion. The end came in the 17th round when the re- fttree interfered and stopped the bout to save the little Welshman from the ignomy of u knockout. Although in the last round Wilde three times had been knocked through tho ropes, he was coming back tor more punishment when the referee 4aught him in his arms, ended the flfhi and gave the decision to Her- BAD. The fight had been advertised it being for the bantamweight chanv pSonobip of tbe world. The men had agreed to weight at 118 pounds but Herman was half a pound overweight. The first five rounds were in favor of Wilde. Then the advantage alternated until the 15tb, when Herman's weight began to tell. Wilde Through Ropes Early in the seventeenth round a right to tbe jaw snnt Wilde through the ropes. This was twice repeated and tha referee ended the contest. Herman surprised tho crowd by his boxing, which discounted Wilde's ag-j The bantamweight j fought a oportsmanlike contest j throughout and was well received by} tbe spectators. Ho will sail for borne' Saturday and hopes again to meet: Joe Lynch to whom he recently lost, tbe title in New York. Although defeated, Wilde is still' Great Britain's boxing hero as be is I considered to have saved tonight's program from being a complete fiasco by entering the ring against Herman, notwithstanding the inability of bis opponent to make the stipulat- ed weight 15 minutes before the nght. Ten thousand persons, including the Prince of Wales and other not- ables witnessed the fight and evinced enthusiasm throughout the tight, es- pecially in tho 15th round when there was a terrific battle on the ropes. Herman, with a left to the ribs and rights to the jaw, appeared to have i Wilde nearly out, but the hell saved j him. I Battling Levinsky, tiib light-heavy-' weight, was to have fought Bombar- dier1 Wells, but he injured his right arm yesterday and the icutch had to be called off. Knox junior hockey team will open ita season of out of town' games to- morrow wben they will invade Pin- cher Creek. Tbe Plncher boys are anxious for a game and have been trying to get a local sextet to travel their way ever since the season opened. The locals expect a hard Bght but think they will come out of the fray with the >ug end of a close score. The team likely lineup as follows: Leech, goal; Sang, Fralie, Douoon. defense; Rose, Greenway, Morrison Ferko and Button on the forward line.

But the local squad is confident of putting another game in the safety deposit box. Raymond has mtatantialiy team as worked last year. Our old i friend Walker, of the broad smile and J awful reach, will not bo seen in ac- tion. Jim says he has quit the game. Meldrnm, Stevens, Fisher and Fair- banks are again in the line-up.
