The two niggers, Sam M'Vea and Sam Langrord, met in the stadium at Rushcutters' Bay, Sydney, last ruesday morning, to light for what may be called the championship of the world in. the absence of the holder jf the title—the /nvincible Jack lohnson. On the last occasion when ;hese two nigs, met in Paris, the result was a draw, but on this occasion M'Vea was given the decision on points after a twenty round go. By a great many the decision of the referee, Snowy Baker, was received with derision, and such good judges as ex-champion Tommy Burns and "Amateur," of the "Referee," were strong in denouncing it.

Some say that the damage to the right optic was due to a bump from Is ...
