BOXING. CANADIAN "CHAMPION" A FROST. Sydney, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Daily Argus — 7 January 1909
? BOXING. CANADIAN ' CHAMPION' A FROST. Sydney, Wednesday. 1 Sanguinary is the word- which most fittingly describes the contest at the Stad-'um to-night between Jack Black more and Joe Summers. The Iattar was comyletely outclassed from the com mencement. Before the first round had progressed for many seconds Blackmore drew blood with a vengeance, and the Canadian ' champion's' unfortunate proboscis was made the special objective of Blackmore's playful sparring there ? - after. Summers tried gamely, but, his efforts only elicited smiles from Black more. Before the end of the seventh round the Ganadian presented such a ghastly spectacle that Sub-Inspector Matthews was more than half inclined to stop the fight. But Summers protested, against the advice of his seconds, and the contest was allowed to proceed. For two more rounds he acted as a chop ping block, and then his seconds wisely skied the towel. The attendance of the public was very poor.

But wih.en one is custodian, of other people's mo ney, and especially when lie is called upon to act in a public capacity, and as the representative of a nation, to approach the head of another nation, the case becomes different. Mr. Fisher, as a citizen, has doubtless handed iu his donation to one or other of the many relief funds which Jvavte been inaugurated. But, as Prime Minister of the Commonwealth., he has ...
