Four   decision-;  were   on  falls     and    two   on   points.  The shortest  bout   was 'bet-we.ou Ken-  worthy,   of  Yale,   and    Whitehead   of  Cornell     in   the heavy  weight   clans.

In  spite of      the  fact  that  the visitors  were    by      far the   heavier  team of  players,   they  were simply  lost- when  up  against  the  men of this  city,  and  their  play completely   outclassed.  However,  they did   their best aud  put     up  a clean  game,   faking their  healing Hie men.   .They  were defeated eight to one.  .J.

Thc match on Saturday can hardly  be termed interesting, it being too  one-nided.    The score  was opened by  Kev; Dr. Sutherland, superintendent of Methodist Missions, arrived  at -Vancouver on Friday. lie was  met at the station by Rev. W. E.  Prescott, Rev. R.
