In Toil/ft comer were .lack Lawrence, Terry Gregory, jack Martin and Young Mendo (Young Mendo spent a few months at Blair-" more about a year ago), while Kansas was looked after by Dan Rogers, Billy i Jessel and Tony Rogers. Dick Nugent, was referee and Frank Klepfel, timekeeper. "Well, Kansas won. and with a good bit to spare, but the fact remains that 19-year-old Clonic Tait was still in the ring, and fit and ready to remain there until further notice, at the end of ten rounds with one of the Jtoughteat and hardest Pittsburg boys in the business. We heard it stated in certain quarters thai Tait was leg-weary at the close of certain rounds. AH we can say is that we were seated within a few feet of Tait's corner during the entire bout, and not once did we notice any signs of it. At the finish he Was quite as strong on his legs as Kansas. It was his work at-close quarters that gave the fight to Rocky; In this department he had the Canadian''tiadly at sea from start to finish, Tait finding it impossible to develop a defence. At close range if Rocky does not connect with his right entirely to his satisfaction he whips it backward like lightning, with jarring effect. He shifts quickly from the body to the head in the clinches, frequently getting outside Tait's arm to the face. Of course the proper thing for Tait tov have done was to stop Rocky as, he came'in with his left, but you can take it from us it will require a mignt& hefty left hand to keep that boy from boring in when he wants to^ and when he gets there, let the best of them' look out. Tait's best rounds were the second and fifth. In the'former he sent both hands to Kansas' head early in the round, shaking the latter up considerably, and followed with anothei right which also did damage. In the fifth Clonie got his left nana going in his best style, and also did better at close quarters. Rounds 2 and 5 to Tait, with the first and seventh fairly even and the rest to Kansas was how we figured it. Clonie. has made many friends in Buffalo and should not lose any by last night s showing. Although undoubtedly defeated it its equally certain that there are very few boys of his years, and experience in good company, who could have equalled his last night's performance. Tait remarked to, the writer in his room at the Iroquois: "I used to read about these fellows and dream about fighting them. Now I've stayed ten rounds with one of the best of them. I have learnt a whole lot. and it has done me all the good in the world.'' Not a word in detraction of Rocky's win, but an admission that the latter with his greater experience had taught him a lesson. Aild this sort of spirit to a grit, which his most severe\cridca will not deny him, and it seems to us that you've got the makings. Clonie, you've got the makings. ^lOTES OF THE BOUT Kansas had no easy passage; it was a fight from start to finish* and at the end of the tenth Rocky had a few marks to show as well as Tait, who made him fight all the way. ' Glonle's nose was again troublesome, and for the last five rounds was bleeding all the time. He says that he /ought twenty fights out west and never had it bleed once, but since .coming east it hap troubled him even when not boxing. expressed himself tickled to with the latter's methods. death Preparations Being Made, It Is Said, For Coming of 1 April After a bath and massage at the hands'.of Jack Martin, Clonie seemed none; the worse *of the battle. Both eyes are puffed and his lower lip split, but his body shows no .signs of Kau-j Saskatoon, Sask., Jan. sas' hard work. Clonic, however, was suffering terribly from hunger and thirst. 0-? --As a It was darned tunny to be in a town where they seemed to hesitate in supplying one with a soft drink. The Hamilton Herald was somewhat more favorable to the Canadian scrapper than the Buffalo sport writers. Here are the opinions of the Buffalo Courier and Buffalo Express: Courier: Rocky Kansas came back and came back good and plenty at the exj*^se of ^.Clonie Tait, Canadian cliafcpmn, listen rounds at the Q. A.C.. membership show at the Broadway auditorium last night. Nine out of the ten rounds were safely charged to the Kansas account, with varying width of raargiu, mostly with much to spare. Orfe round, the fifth, belonged to Tait, the only round in which he was able to .show with his right hand, the maulie that is supposed to carry 'the wallop. What Clonie lacks is a'bit of experience and u lot of schooling at infighting. When they got to close quarters the Medicine Hat boy didn't know that his hands were gloved for the purpose of punching. He contented himself with holding Rocky ,and waiting for the break. In several rounds he held uselessly and without reason. Rocky soon discovered Tait's weakness was an utter lack of infighting, and what ho did to Cldnie in the close t work left nothing to be desired, except by Tait. Backhands, short uppercuts, rousing overhand swipes and a loop-the-loop that was. as accurate and efficient as Ted Lewis* famous wallop, reaching round and over his opponent's clinging arms and smacking him hard and often flush to the face. At the straight out work Rocky, too, was the better. Although handicapped by almost six pounds, he forced the milling, leaping in with left jab and hooks that swung Tait about, itocky cut Clonie's eara bled his nose and had both his eyes in early mourning before the close of the bout. Rocky was strong all through the bout and the way he hit with both hands was proof sufficient his hands-are again in fight-ling shape. Tait will bear emphatic corroboration to this statement. Express: Kouky Kansas, the Buffalo lightweight champion, boxed too strongly, for Clonie Tait, the Canadian champion, last night, and had slashed and pouniled out a decisive victory over, the boy from Alberta at the end of their ten-round bout. Although outweighed and compelled to yield height and reach to his adversary, the little Hercules packed the* power in his punch to bring his adversary down, to nis stature. After early effort to cope with the other in slugging: Tait was compelled to rely almost entirely on a straight left to,save himself and he lasted the ten rounds by its diligent use and by much holding in the closing rounds. It was a rough-and-ready battle, both men trickling crimson, and even Kansas, the victor, at times wearied by the severe nature of/his exertions and occasional punishment he suffered at the hands, of the boy from, the land of snows. The local'club is still waiting for an answer from Tait relative to a match here about February 10. A classy opponent from across the line has been lined up for htm. THE HOUSE OF SERVICE 1 FIFTH STREET SOUTH CETHBRIDGE, ALT A. Tait is not quite certain as to his future arrangements.^ He has been offered a bout in Whmlpeg and a six-round exhibition go with Jimmy Duffy. Should he remain In Buffalo a Tait-Erne bout is spoken of as a certainty for the near future. Iii preparation for Kansas, Tait has been handled by Jack Lawrence, aud / * NONE INJUREO Brookville, Ont, Jan; 24.--Yesterday morning, shortly before 7 o'clock, G. T. R. passenger train No. 18, Toronto to Montreal, was derailed at Gladstone Point, about: thi'ee and a half miles east of Maitland. No persons were injured. The passengers were transshipped to another train. BARRED FROM MAILS. New York, Jan. 22.-The Irish World, the Gaelic-American and the Freeman's Journal, three of the leading weekly publications in this country espousing the cause of Irish Independence, have been barred from the mails, it was learned from the editors of these papers today. result of the law which prohibits the shipping from ono province to another of liquor after April 1 next there is more activity among local concerns with outside provincial connections for the distribution of intoxicants than ever before. One concern with Saskatoon connection has three.,times as many orders for liquor from Alberta and Manitoba, especially the former, as it can handle, although they have put on more than double tho regular staff of men. One shipment of four carloads of liquor left Saskatoon fast week for Alberta points, most of it being Consigned to Edmonton, Lethbridge and Calgary. The orders for most of this liquor were obtained through the free lance system of (distributing blanks among persons who are believed to send orders to outside points. Another method practised among the mail order houses put out of business last year is to send out catalogues to former customers of those mail order houses. One liquor dealer said last week that after April 1 those customers would be supplied just as readily as they were being supplied today. He said warehouses had been secured in both Edmonton and Calgary and supplies of liquor worth between $73,000 and 9100,000 had been divided among three Alberta'cities to be distributed by the bottle and case after April 1. At least $40,0.00 worth of this has been consigned to Edmonton for distribution in the Edmonton district and the Peace River country through the medium of an organization of bootleggers which has^>p erated with considerable success siuce the first liquor act went into force. Only two of its members have ever been caught aud a conviction was returned in only one case and that was before the liquor reached the north country. SET FORTH IN LETTER TO HOLY F of tho enemy, that tho royal government, has examined into the possibility of contributing in the measures depending upon it toward tho realization of the double desire which inspires tho pontificial message: To hasten the end of the present war and render a return of similar catastrophes impossible by tho adoption of guarantees destined to assure the supremacy of right over force. "At tho beginning of September the royal government informed his holiness that it must reserve decision regarding its action on the propositions) contained in the message until tho powers at war with Belgium had clearly made known ^their war aims. It added in any case Belgium would make no expression of peace terms and the organization of international relations excepting in full accord with the powers guaranteeing its independence, that have done honor to their obligations toward her and whoso arms fight with hers for the cause of right. "Nothing has modified the situation that existed at tho moment the royal government made known that point of view to his holiness. However, Belgium seizes eagerly the occasion furnished it by his holiness to repeat before the civilized world what, it wrote nearly a year ago to President Wilson: " 'Before German ultimatum Belgium aspired to live on good terms with all its neighbors. She practised with scrupulous loyalty toward each of them the duties imposed by this neutrality. '"How was sho recompensed by Germany for the confidence she showed in her? If there is a country that has the right to say it took up arms to defend its existence it assuredly Is Belgium. She desires passionately that an end be brought to the unheard of sufferings of its population but She would accept only peace that would assure her at tho same time equitable reparation .and security and guarantees for the future.' "The integrity of Belgium, the territory of the mother country and colonies, political, economic and military independence without condition or restriction, reparation for damage suffered and the guarantees against a renewal of the aggression of 1914- such remain the indispensable conditions of a just peace so far as concerns Belgium. Any settlement that! . would not recognize them would shake the very foundations of justice, sjnee it would forever more be established that in international domains violation of right creates a claim for Its author and may become a source of profit, "Since the royal government a year ago formulated Its conditions, it permits itself to recall ihat the reichstag voted resolutions called "peace resolutions. The chancellor and ministers of foreign affairs have followed^ each other, in the German empire, and more recently in the central empires, and have published notes replying to the message of his holiness, but never a word has been pronounced and never a line written clearly recognizing the indisputable rights of Belgium that his holiness has not ceased to recognize aud proclaim." ~. DISCLOSED AT Havre, Jan. 23.-King Albert, in enclosing the Belgian government's reply to the pope's peace proposals, wrote u personal letter as follows: "Very Holy Father: I take note, with lively sympathy and interest, of the message your holiness was good enough to send to the heads of belligerent countries in the month of August last and have submitted to my government which has studied it with most serious aud deferential attention. The result of that study has been recorded in a note which I am happy to communicate to your holiness. "In associating myself with the wishes of the holy see that a just and durable peace may promptly put an end to the evils from which humanity and particularly the Belgian people, so rudely tried, are suffering,.. I beg your holiness to believe in my filial and respectful attachment. , (Signed) "Albert." in ijarj. The government's, reply says: "Already in his consistorlal allocution of January 22, 1915, the Holy Father had proclaimed before the world that he reproved injustice and he condescended to give the Belgian government the assurancetthat in formulating that reprobation it was the invasion of Belgium he had directly in view. "The honest people of all countries will rejoice with the Belgian government that the injustice of which Belgium was the victim and the necessity for reparation have been proclaimed and that the highest moraT authority of Christendom remains watchful amidst the conflicts of man. "It was because of the gratitude felt on this account, which was augmented by the numerous charitable Iacts of the holy father in favor of so many Belgians, victims of the violence ......i Halifax, N.
