on the occasion of the last match
will probably Hi* made with the
steamer .Joan to have that vessel
make a special trip in the evening to bring over a steamer-load
of wrestling-enthiisjn.sts from Nunn-
imo to see the match and return
immediately  after.
"It is prpbtaule that ir order
lo prevent any possibility of a dispute about the genuineness of a
fall, such as existed on the occasion of tho las-t match, that flying-
tiiiil    I'olliiiy   falls   rt ill   be barred
in the coming match and pin falls,
insisted on. This will be a wise
provision,- as flying and rolling-
falls, besides not being it fair test
of respectiv�� science and ability
always leave an opening for a
difference of opinion between contestants, referee and spc'c.talor*.
