ORDINANCES Validity Challenged Trespassing Charge The validity of the ordinances made in pursuance of the Seat of Government Administration Act was challenged   during the hearing of a case in     Queanbeyan yesterday. A prosecution was instituted by the police of the Federal Capital Terri- tory against T. O'Brien, of Canberra, on the ground that he had suffered stock to stray in the grounds of Fed- eral Parliament House. Mr. W. T. Tucker, the solicitor who appeared for the defendant, submitted that the or- dinances under which O'Brien was charged were invalid. Section 52 of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act, he stated, vested in parlia-   ment the exclusive power of making laws for the peace and order and good government of the Commonwealth, with respect to the seat of Government of the Commonwealth, and all places ac- quired by the government for public purposes.

The contest took place at Philadel- phia at 9 p.m. on Thursday, before a crowd of 120,000. Special trains from all parts of the country carried thous- ands to Philadelphia to witnes the fight. The receipts wore estimated at about £350,000, of which the former champion's share, win, lose; or draw was to be £150,000. Tunnoy's end would bo in the neighborhood of £40,000.
