STOPPING A GLOVE FIGHT.

AUCKLAND, October 19. At the Police Court to-day seven young men were charged with intending to be present at a fight at the Catholio Institute Hall to-night. It was stated that the defendants had been advertised to compete in a sparring competition. The police considered this nothing short of prize-fighting. Sergeant Clarke instanced the ForgieNicholson contest, five' years ago, when the former died from a blow received. The defendants contended that their exhibition was to be a scientific contest for points, with ordinary gloves, and not a prize-fight. They were ordered to find recognisances in the Bum of £lO each to keep the peace.
