Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 2, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETIIKKIDGE DAILY HKItALD MORE ABOUT RAYMOND GAME S-POR-T-S ATHLETICS SADLY TROUNCED HOOK Will be Applied to Bran- don and Winnipeg Fail to Come up the Scratch PRO. BASEBALL FOR US IN 1912 PRES. ECKSTORM INCLUDES LETHBRIDGE IN ALBERTA LEAGUE FOR NEXT INTERNATIONAL- DROPS EASTERN CLUBS Edmonton, August J. Echstorm, of of the Western Canada Hascball league, who is In Edmonton as a member of the delegation from the Licensed Victuallers1 association wljich is meeting fii? Attorney Ocnernl snggr-st mrNitti amendments to the liquor license laws. Mr, Eckstonn has piloted the Western Canada league through stormy seas for two seasons. lie said yesterday that the league this year would undoubtedly make a hotter financial showing than last year. Winnipeg' has been a disappointment to the league president. "Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg in order are the best paying cities in the league. The attendance at Winnipeg ought to bo just double what it is. President Eckstonn outlined the league as lie would have it in 1012. There would be eight teams in it. Winnipeg anil Unimion would be drop- ped and the teams would be, -Moose Jaw, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton. Red Deer, Calgary. Leihbrldgo and Medicine Hat. This league, he thought ought to be a success. There was only one other formation that ho would prefer to it ami that was a league of .Montana and Alberta cities. It was not improbable that such a league could be organized next year with a little effort as the Lucas Union league in which Montana joined this year with Utah and Idaho has not been proving successful. Edmonton, Aug. asked by the Bulletin what he thought about; the threat-which came from Winnipeg! about the dropping out of the Maroons and Brandon from the league, I'resi-1 dent Ecltstorm, who is In the city just j now. said there was another side to the etory. At the last meeting of the league representatives, which was j held in Brandon gome time ago. Pro Blackburn of the Winnipeg club, said that'his home club was ex- ceeding the salary limit and the limit raised on account of the suspic- ion of other teams being over the limit.

Winnipeg has beer, the sore spot In the circuit all season and they are always, about something. Be- fore the league started this year they took no steps to form a team until the eleventh hour and seeing now that they have not as good a team as the western clubs, they set a horrible howl about the salary limit, a bad, schedule, etc. A short while ago Win- j nipeg put up a cry that the other clubs could not exist unless they got the >big percentage which they dre of 3 to 4.
