Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald. Tuesday, August The Regina Situation Kegina, Aug. baseball situation in Regina is still .in a precarious condition. Demise seemed Imminent early in the week, there was a turn for the better, ;and now there is a relapse with grave .prospects of dissolution. AS intim- ated in the Leader some -days ago, the company in control of the Regina franchise decided it could no longer finance the club, in view of the poor patronage on the home grounds, fol- lowing heavy liabilities early in the season, and the failure to receive the .support promised in certain quarters. the announcement was made that the franchise would be turned to .the league, several Regina cit- izens immediately bestirred them- selves and it semea quite possible that suck arrangements would be made that they would take the franchise and carry the team' for the (balance of the season. yet 'be done, but, if so -action can >be no longer -delayed, and to-day will tell the tale.

Though the Western clubs are not complaining several of the eastern baseball moguls claim that they have had pretty near- ly enough, as practically every club in the league lias dropped money this year, and stand to drop more before the season closes. The long jumps to the Western cit- ies, which is longer than the Am- erican or National leagues, entails considerable expense, and as most of tlis tcSnis in uis Eastern division 01 the league have been unable to com- pete against the West, the crowds have been poor, and it has been a case of the stock holders going down deep- er deeper in their pockets every ors to Great air now being held in Lethbridge. will find it very much to their advan- tage if requiring anything in the Men's Wear line, to call at store and get his prices on his high grade stock of -Men's Clothing, Hats, Ties, Hosiery, Underwear.

Nearly forty players have signed Maroon contracts dur- ing the season. Many proposals have been made, but one of the latest which conies from the Winnipeg club is to form a league from the eastern clubs comprising Winnipeg. iJoose Jaw, Brandon, Regina. Saskatoon and some other town large enough to support a professional hall team. Portage la Prairie has been mentioned, while if an eight club league was desired it is thought that 'Fort William and Port Arthur could be induced to put teams in the field. But the lake towns would eat up a lot of railway fare which would hardly make them a pos- sibility. The Edmonton Journal, commenting on the situation, prints the follow- ing: "From Regina comes plans for a new baseball league. The idea is not by any meaag new, nor has it commended itself to those vrho have thought seriously about it. The teams which are suggested for the proposed league are Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Moose Brandon and Kegina. The league would be called tne Saskatchewan-Manitoba league.

It is esti- mated that Chance "will clear 000 if the C'.ibs win this season. He will make if they land under first place. Chance's contract called for a year until 1909.

Lethbridge Up Against It. Lethbridge has started to look for j more money, as the nine of the mining city is not paying for itself. Moose Jaw, with a high salaried bunch of ball players, is said to be drawing well at home, while Brandon, though not making money, has been drawing much larger crowds than last year. Winnipeg has shown a marked in- crease in attendance over last season, but the club hag had so much trouble in bringing new ball players and ex- perimenting with them that the trans- be greatly cut down, as the Western cities, especiaJly Calgary and Edmon- ton are the best paying towns in all three provinces. Too Fast. "If the league has not been a par- ticularly brilliant success this year, it has not been so much the distance it was necessary to travel, but the fact that the Calgary and Edmonton teams have so far outstripped the oth- er teams that the fans in the losing towns do not care to see their teams outclassed. "If the new league is organized next year the same difficulty will be met with. Winnipeg and Saskatoon will have teams that "will make a run airay just as much as the two Western teams have this year. "If it were possible to form an Al- berta league, it would be a great im- provement on the quality of ball play- this year. Unfortunately, there are only three towns in Alberta that support a professional ball team. Med- icine Hat has been proven incapable, and could not be considered. Cal- gary, Lethbridge and Edmonton form the nucleus of a league that could play almost as good ball as the Northwest- ern league. So far this year the east- ern teams have been but a hindrance to the league leaders." his glove he got into an argu- the umpire.
