A wrestling match, the best two out of three falls, in the Lancashire eatch-as-catch-can style for the Light Weight Championship of the World between Yukio Tani, of Japan, and J. Mellor, of Stalybridge, was decided, at the Tivoli, in London, on Monday afternoon. The conditions were that the men should weigh in at 9st. 41b. two hours before wrestling, and should be on the, mat at 3 o'clock. If no conclusive result was arrived at before 5 o'clock the contest was to be declared a draw. The match had aroused considerable interest, for Tani, who has never been beaten in the Japanese style of wrestling, had not taken part before Monday in a match under catch-as-catch-can rules; while Mellor had beaten all comers at his weight in this method. The match was won by Tani by two falls to one. Mellor gained the first fall after 60 minutes' wrestling, but Tani won the second in 19min. 33sec. and the third in 18min. 11-isce. 4 WOOLWICH WIN AT BRADFORD. The postponed match in the Second.
