The main feature of the boxing exhibition last evening in City Hall was the trouble at the gate  when admittance was refused to City Treasurer McGillicuddy, Alderman Darington and several members of the Common Council. Treasurer McGillicuddy and gate-keeper Paul Cloutier had a tussle and were separated by the police. In the boxing exhibition proper, Napoleon Dufresne bested Gus Larrabee in six rounds.

The Twin Cities shivered despite bright sunshine yesterday as the mercury dipped close to the zero mark.

It was hard to believe that spring is just a few days away. The sunshine was bright but those who were up at 5 a.m. found their cars difficult to start in some cases and the mercury was at 8 degrees with a brisk breeze blowing.

The temperature never did get above freezing and the sunshine did nothing to help clear the streets still ice-rutted from recent storms.
