THE ccDAILY POST" TOURNAMENT. NOTABLE CROWD AT I THE EMPIRE. The ancient gladiatorial displays in the great amphitheatre of Rome could not have excited more interest, than did the monstre boxing tournament in aid of the "D;.ily Post" War Prisoners' Fund, at. the Swansea Empire, on Saturday afternoon. There was an immense "house"—packed t > the doors- and .it is no exaggeration to say that never before has so much money been taken for a single performance as on this occasion. Every available ticket had been sold days ago, and yet people were actually outside the "Daily Post" offices as early as seven o'clock on Saturday morning in the hope of securing the necessary passport., whilst large sums offered for seats that came to hand by the first post had to be returned. Nor was the interest confined to Swansea. Pte. Billy Rowlands, of the 23rd Regiment (the crack Welsh fly- weight) was matched against Jimmy Wilde (the world's champion) in a 20 round con- test for a purse of 50 guineas. This was but one of the many "star" turns. And by the kind permission of the officer commanding, the regimental band and 100 of the men came down bv SDecial train from Porthcawl
