Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Dally Herald. Wednesday, August TIT BITS Page 7. Western Race Close. The fight for leadership in the West ern league race has narrowed down two teams, Denver and Sioux City The Grizzlies, .by a desperate effort have maintained a scant lead during the past week, but the advantage is slight. Both clubs have 'been playin 'wonderful baseball. Adams Victim of Nerves. Fans who have been watching the 'Pittsburg Pirates, have noticed that Babe Adams, the Denver twirl- er and hero of the 1909 world's series, has not been in the game for some time. reason is explained in a dis- patch to the effect that Adams has suf rered a complete breakdown. He has worried himself into such a condition that he will ,be out of tho game for the rest of the season.

A letter has -been received here from a man who desires to have his name, withheld, in which, it is stated that, in accordance with the lavr, per- mitting prize fights in the state of Nevada, Jeffries and Johnson were both examined by a -board of five phy- sicians.

PRESS CLWB DEFEATED AT TA8ER YESTERDAY The Press Club went down to Taber yesterday afternoon to try conclusions with the team of that town. A week ago the local boys- were in Taber and after a hard fought game the score resulted in a tie, and the locals were 'determined to retrieve them- selves yesterday. But it was not to be, for Taber won a close game, Inability of the Press Club to hit Stokes opportunely was the cause "-defeat. Josh Moore pitched a steady game for the Lethbridge boys, and at the receiving end Bruce Davies got everything in sight. physically unfit to enter the ring. These physicians strenuously advised Jeffries not to fight and frankly told him that he was in poor condition. Un der the Nevada law the Board of Ex- amining Physicians had to be unani- mous in granting permission, for the pugilists to proceed, so pressure was to -bear on Drs. Hood and West from all sides. It was shown that the1 amount of money at stake was too great to war- rant a fizzle and that Reno wanted the fight for business reasons. As Jeffries wa-s also anxious to go ahead and take a chance, probaibly -because Snodgrass Keeps Up Hitting, of .the -big loser's end, the two physi- Snodgrass keeps up his heavy bat- clans were finally won over after they ting for 'New York, and has been had been informed that if Jeffries be-, stinging the ball in the west, even if came weak his seconds or the referee'the Giants have been losing. would prevent him from sustaining serious injury. "Rickard, Corbett, Berger and oth- .ers close to Jeffries knew before he started for the arena on July 4 that he was in poor condition, but "they kept back the truth because of the money. Johnson was allowed to re- main in ignorance of Jeffries' real con dition until he learned ii himself in the ring. _ new law prohibiting prize fights in Nevada will go into effect in Octo- ber, and will prevent a repetition of this gigantic swindle. I don't know whether Governor Dickerson, of Ne- vada, knew at the .time that Drs. Hood and West had pronounced Jeffries' un- fit, but if he didn't somebody was to blame, if he did it seems rather strange that he -did not prevent the 'ight himself, in spite'of his old friend ship for Rickard, the chief promoter." Governor Dicterson, it will >be re- membered, made it clear that unless he fight was on the level he would promptly interfere. If it is true, ac- ording to the above communication, hat two physicians in compliance with the law examined Jeffries, found him unfit and then agreed to let him fight, sporting men believe that there should -be an investigation.'

It was a good exhibition and some classy work was done 'by'-both teams. In the first "inning Dunn injured his leg and had to be replaced by Whisman! Gordon pitched good (ball and held the Miners down good and solid. In the sixth inning the Miners went up and the Berry Pickers rushed in no' less than 'six runs. In the seventh they scored one more.

Gans got back home yesterday afternoon- to die. A mere skeleton of his form- er sinewy self, unable to talk above a whisper and absolutely helpless, the former light weight champion of the world's prize ring, was lifted tend- erly on a cot out of the drawing room of a sleeper attached to the Pennsyl- vania Limited, which reached the Un- ion station at o'clock. "Al" 'Herford, the fighter's former manager, was there with a private am hulance, to take his dying protege to the home of Gan's mother, on Ar- gyle avenue. According to Dr. Southworth, who came all the way across the country with Gans from Prescott, Ariz., the former pugilist may live a week or ten days yet, but his doom as a victim of tuberculosis remarkable is sealed. Gans ..showed rallying powers after leaving Chicago. While in that city it was necessary to pump oxygen into him almost and his life seemed to be single breath. hanging almost by a Once he sarted on the last lap of his run to Baltimore, how- ever, he showed such a marked change as to astonish the doctor and other members of the party.

Then I can die peacefully. .That's ail I want now- just to get to good, old Baltimore ag- ain and say goodly to the folks." Just after leaving York, Gans said, slowly; "I'm going home to die.
