DRAMATIC SCENES WHEN NEWPORT DEFEATED SOUTH AFRICAN ELEVEN "_______ PALZER WILL MEET WINNER OF BOUT Los Angeles, Nov. Palzer, the New York heavyweight, will meet the winner of the Flyn-n-McCarty fight scheduled for the Vcruon arena, on December 10, in the heavyweight elimination contest to determine the championship cf the "white hope'1 clas? Promoter McCarry has concluded negotiations 'with Tom O'Rourke, man- ager of the New York fighter, an-d the light will occur on New Year's eve. Bruce Riclpath seems to have two good men in McLehn, of Westminster, and Cameron of Port Arthur, snys tho Toronto News. Thsir reputations ook classy enough to hold them in the big league. The first rushy team in the old disallowed, Newport's lead looked country to defeat the toivring South Africans, was Newport, by a score of an old country exchange. Never was there u more dramatic finish to a. match. In the very last minute- of the first half that wonder- ful match winner. F. W. Birt, dropped a glorious goal for Newport from the "25" line, aud the home team crossed over with a four-point Ifad. The enor- mous crowd, a record one for the- New- port grounds, had gone mad with ex- citement, and those intrepid enthus- iasts who had climbed on tn the roofs of houses and 'were sitting of chimney pats looked in imminent dag- ger of broken necks. As usual in Wales, enthusiasm show ed itself in song, "and an enormous im- promptu choir, numbering at Jenst 000 voices, burst into the "Soldiers Farewell." but keen as the excitement had been it was nothing to what to follow. The South Africans, seeing that their title to their mascot, the spring- bok bead, was seriously threatened, set off at a rare pace, and for a time kept their opponents tightly penned In Newport defended desperately. They bad drawn first blood, had tak- en the lead, and they meant to hold it tight. But after a desperate strug- gle, Stegmann liatl the .jail, shot through the Welshmen, handed to Morkel as he drew near the full-back, and llorkel grounded the ball right tiehind the posts. Luyt took the.place kick, and when the impetuous Welsh- men rushed out and the charge was gone'. Very deliberately Luyt took the kick but to everyone's amazement the ball went wide, and Newport still led by four points to three. Now the South Africans fairly ran over Newport. Stegmann crossed She- line, but his fool had gone into touch. Then II. Luyt. looked a certain scorer, but was pulled down just in time. Newport held on grimly. At last, heeling out on thur own line, the ball went to Birt, and a wonderfully fine kick found touch and brought relief to the harassed Welshmen. A cheer greeted the plucky' de-fenders and grew to" thunderous proportions. Wet- ter, the Newport centre, had gathered the ball and cut through. The Afri- cans were at sixes aud sevens for the moment, and Wetter jnmted over the back's head and over the Hue. A des- perate race for the ball ensued. A South African reached the spot first, but the ball bounced away from htm, and Birt, that opportunist, just reach- ed it in time and touched down be- hind the posts and then converted his own try. The crowd went mad for a time. This goal spelt victory, for there were only three minutes now to go, and Newport led by nine points to three. IE was impossible for the Springboks to score twice in three minutes. The South Africans were entertain- ed at dinner by the Newport Athletic Club, when the mascot of the South Africans, a springbok's head, was pre- sented to the Newport Club as the first side to defeat them.

Last night at Henderson Lake, a number of the younger set were tint cutting figure eights for first time this season. The ice was smooth, but hardly thick en-, ough to ensure safe skating, ami as a result three stag figure-eight artists, who were performing.in the vicinity of the bridge, crashed through the thin crust, and suffered a cold ducking. The ice was safe enough close to shore but hazardous in the. middle. Wagner Still the Boss Al Y1CA Pittsburg Veteran Has Not Hit Below .300 in 16 Years SCOTCH WHISKY "BLACK a ITS There was abundance of good short- stopping during the season of but it was mostly done ;by the veter- ans. Although the minor leagues were combed for good shortstops during the fall and winter, and a platoon of young shoristoppers tried their skill on southern fields, not one youug man. showed up with such impressive style that he was given rank amoTi'g the truly great ones of the game. The old hoys were tho when you count every point of all- I'onnd value to his team, the oldest one of all, Honus Wagner, takes the crown. The only slowing up to he seen in Wagner's work during 1912 was in his failure to steal as many bases as in earlier years, and even then, few, if any of the other shortstops swiped any more cushions. The great old Dutchman still Ilit hard aad often witlt the usual pro- portion C'f .long wallops where they canntsd most. As for bis shortstop- ping, there was no flaw in his style j or execution. j In that clumsy, lumbering hut effective way he continued to get over acres of ground, handled every i kind of drive as well as ever, and, In j summarizing it all, was just llonus i Wagner, meaning that he w-as the best of them all.

M. C. A., and during the next month the boom as no other game has boomed there be- fore. A league of four teams is he- tug foriiKd, which will include the Business and Senior classes, the Dor- mitory boys and a school team. There is a lot of fun playing indoor baseball. It is a fast aud furious game, without being necessarily rough. The "Y" patrons are taking to" it like ducks to water. -When the first league game is announced, no one should miss see. ing the teams in action. The gym- nasium gallery is thro'wn open to the pnBlic without charge. Indoor baseball will hold sway un- til the New Year, then it is the desire of the nhysicial instructor, Mr. Gil- more to have basketball hold the boards. Ottawa, Nov. before his departure for the coast, Fred Taylor, who v.-as accompanied by Carl Ken- dall, of the New Euinburghs, gave one of his principal reasons for de- serting the Ottawa club in the crisis. Taylor turned down big terms from Bruce Ridpath yesterday, though the Torontos offered him much more than the Patricks. "I am sorry to leave Ottawa, and have nothing but the best of words for tbe Ottawa club." said Taylor, "but I happen to know for a fact that I would not have been permitted to play with them this season. Why, Sain Ijichtenheim owns one of the Toronto clubs aud I learned that their plot was to send me to Toronto. The Ottawas could not liave secured my services under any circumstances. Lichtenliei.m is running the league be- cause he controls at the very least two of the clubs absolutely. I don't like' the idea of being bought, sold and ordered from place to place like a slave. I've always tried to be on the square with hockey and every other kind of sport, and have done my best for that I had the pleasure to play for; but under the circumstances, I could not conscien- tiously stay In the east this winter."
