Dave Graham, amateur heavyweight of Winnipeg, won the heavyweight boxing contest from Walter Adams, amateur heavyweight champion of Manitoba by a foul at the Auditorium rink last night before a crowd of about 400 people. The affair proved a disappointment. Graham contracted a habit of bending down and holding his hands on the Moor to evade punishment. Adams struck him once or twice while In this position In the second round. The refute warmed Adams, but when half tho third round was over, Graham once more assumed this favorite attltudo and Adams landed him again. Graham's seconds claimed tho fight on a foul and Arthur Stemnyer promptly nade the award. The result of the long looked-for-ward-to event was received with anything but satisfaction. 1 he crowd wanted action and while Graham was a hot favorite, still his friends wanted a moro clean-cut victory. Adam's Friends Disappointed. The result was also a source of disappointment to friends of Adams, who apparently lost his head sufficiently to commit the foul on Graham's Inviting face. They expected him to win easily. Challenges flew hot and fast both prior and after the finish of the feature attraction. Before the bout a challenge to the winner was read from l-i itz Wllloughby of Winnipeg, while Kid Gains, of Brandon, was also present to challenge the winner. Gains by tho way Is a negro. After the bout Adams took occasion to address the crowd around the ring, offering to fight Graham again at any time or place. Graham followed shortly after In a second Impromptu speech to the crowd, statins that he had $100 to bet that he could beat Adams. Fighters Mixed It Up. The bout was scheduled to go ten rounds, but It is doubtful If It would have stretched over that period. Both Graham and Adams displayed a tendency to mix it up, and It looked as if cither one of the mitt artlHts would have gone by the snooze route considerably before the limit, had the bout had a more satisfactory ending.. The boxers were in fair shape. Graham looked to be In better form than when he met Adams last fall, but then lie was still heavy. Adams was in good condition, too. and although both were somewhat fagged out when the unexpected happened, the bout had reached a stage when neither had really any great advantage. Adams again demonstrated that he was more clever with the mitts, but from the fact that Graham had planned a cautious fight and allowed him to do practically all the leading, Adams was forced to take quite a bit of punishment. Both boxers sparred for an opening in the first round and merely tapped fach other, though Adams scored the first knock-down near the end of the round. They began to mix things more freely In the second round and both went to their corners badly winded. Ihere was little to choose between the men at this Juncture. The fighters started at It. hammer and tongs, In the third round and Stemnyer had difficulty In keeping them apart. They both fought wildly, although several telling blows were delivered by each. Graham dropped to the mat to evade punishment and whilo in this attitude, Adams Caught him a stiff uppercut with his right. The ward was made during the greatest excitement The Preliminaries. In the preliminaries Bob Harris was given the decision over "Kid" Buchan after three rounds of sparring, while Jackson forced Evans to ouit in the third round of a welterweight bout. Jackson had the weight and punch and Evans the more science. Jack Skelly refereed the preliminary bouts. Skelly was billed to fo with Weir in one of the preliminaries, but the bout failed to materialize. There was a long delay before the bouts commenced. The seating arrangements were all that could be desired and in view of the fact that there was skating in the rink a little over two weeks ago, there has been some splendid work In getting the rink ready on such quick notice. During the cvenln- it was announced that Arthur Edwards of Toronto, amateur lightweight of Canada, would be In the city next week and would take on any two local lightweights on the same evening.

Devotees of the royal game had a field day yesterday afternoon and evening, the occasion being tho visit of 0. Mar-ocy, the Hungarian chess master, whose coming has been heralded in the daily papers for some weeks past. The exhibition is taking place in Manitoba hall. The feature of the afternoon was the exhibition game between Maroczy and Magnus Hniith. This oontset had almost an international aspect, each player being the champion of his respective country, Maroczy won the choice of colors and elected to play white. The game was very close until the 22nd move, when the Hungarian gave a bishop for two pawns, forcing a strong attack on the king's side. Smith defended ably, but a weak move a littlo later enabled Maroczy to force the exchange of rook sand gain a winning position. Smith then resigned. A number, of chess enthusiasts watched the game with great interest. At the evening performance simultaneous chess was on the boards, and nineteen players put up a more or loss successful defence. Defence, however, was the highest achievement of any of them, only three. Spencer, Elson and Magnus Smith succeeding in obtaining draws. Sixteen wins, three draws nu no losses constituted the record for the evening's play, no mean showing even for so formidable a player as Herr Geza Maroczy. Some of the losers, however, made a good fight; Bruce, for instance, played his game to a pawn ending but being one pawn down could not prevent his opponent breaking through. A noticeable trait in the great master's play is his readiness to make apparently costly sacrifices to improve the position of his pieces; chess, indeed, is par excellence the game that admits of briliancy of description, but it requires a touch of genius, frequently, to do this effectively. In the gamo with Spencer Maroczy evinced this quality by sacri-attiujn 6nti ii.wrcd b jo j nooi h Suioy an impending deeat into a draw. Following are the results of the evening's play: 1 Magnus Smith, Spencer and Elson, drew. The following lost: C. Blake (French defence); E. Nemenyi (Fian-chetto); D. E. Simpson (Giuoco Piano); H. H. Burrell (quen's gambit, Marshall's defence); W. C. Turnock (Falk Berglieder gambit); H. Burr tking's bishop's opening); P. Barry (king's gambit); J. Cn.rniichael (kings gamhet accepted); W. T. B. Kennedy (Falkerlie-der counter gambit); H. A. Cartin (king's gambit); . H. Belton (king's bishop declined); W. E. Anderson (king's bishop declined); J. Wildman (king's gambit); M. O. Smith (Falken-lieder); A. V. Bruce (French defeuce); G. Lunt (king's gambit declined). The arrangements for today's programme are as follows: In the afternoon Herr Maroczy will play an individual exhibition game against Mr. C. Blake. Play to commence at 2 p. m. In the evening Herr Maroczy (blindfolded) will play against six picked players. Play to commence at 8 p. m. prompt. Geza' Maroczy was born in Szeged, in Hungary, iu 1876. He learned to play chess at an early age, and showed great aptitude for the gahie. Maroczy studied at Budapest university and took a high degree in philosophy, obtaining a professor's certificate in rnathematics and physics. At this time he frequently visited the Hungarian chess club, and had the opportunity of improving his play by meeting Marcovitz (the then chess champion of Hungary, now dead), and Charousek, one of the best players of the day . In 1894 Maroczy entered for the Vienna tournament where he won his master's certificate and then commenced to take part in international games. In the international championship for the world held at Nuremburg in 1898, Maroczy came out sixth, Lasker winning the ehajnpionship. In this contest Maroczy tied with Csigorin (the Russian cnampion) and JJr. stelmtz,one of the best known of the old masters. In Munich, shortly afterwards, Maroczy again mei L,asner and rmsDury, in competition for the Munich cup, and these three players tied for first place. Maroczv was in noor health when the deciding games were played and earned seconu ana tnira place, with iillsburv, His next performance of note was in 1902, when he won the Monte Carlo challenge cup, Pillsbury and Dr. Tar- rascn oeing among nis opponents, in 1905 Dr. Tarrasch won this cup, Maroczy being second, but in 1904 ho again Vinn it and alon in 4ha fr.llnu,l .,an- thus becoming the absolute owner o the oup, and 10,000 francs. In 1905 Maroczy won tho Ostein! cup, a beautiful gold plaquette, and 5,000 francs. Dr. Tarrasch, Pillsbury and Marshall were among those who endeavored to carry off this valuable prize. Maroczy now issuea a cnanenge to Lasker to play a series of games for the world's championship. In New York, recently, Maroczy demonstrated his skill as a chess player of high rank, by defeating Fox and Delmar (tho American masters), and also Marshall. He gave two txhihitions of simultaneous play at the Manhattan Chess club. In the first he played thirty games, won twenty-one, lost two and drew seven. In the second, against twenty-five selected nlavers. he won Lnineteen, lost one and drew five. r o n . i , mn;i:,jr was inarriea iasc year to a Hungarian lady. Unlike most wives, she takes a great interest in his play, and is herself one of the best Hungarian lady players of the present day. KNOX YOUNG PEOPLE.
