WARNER BALL CLUB'S PROTEST Warner-'baseball protested-, the game played, in.- Lethbridge ..Wednesday night and which won b> the Ta ber team, 9 LO 8 The points of pro test reflect. :no credit on -Warner's sportsmanship as >vill be readily -seen by. anyone. T7ho: knows baseball and has a knowledge of the rules ot the game. The protest, is as fol- lows Raymond, Aug. S. Dr. J. H. Rivers, Sec.-Treas: Northern Division; Southern Alber- ta League 'Of Amateur-, Baseball Clubs, Lethbridge, Alta, Dear am -instructed by the manager of the''Warner ball team to protest tho game between Warner and Lcthibridgc on Wednesday night, Aug. 7. The reasons I am instructed to give are theae: 1. The umpire'did not see Luker fall to touch third base in" the fourth innings.-" '2. The bases, with the exception of'first, were not legal size and were not staked, and therefore runners did not need to base's.1 the fifth innings one Taher player failed to touch the homo film out. 4. The umpire stated that he was interested 'in money on the i-irtually that he was bought. 'Fbr -these' Di- vision in this (league has seen lit to enter this arid would ask you kindly to consider it as soon as convenient. Yours fraternally, W, McD.. TAIT, Respecting point No. is-a mat- ter of the umpire's 'judgment' and the rules of-the game plainly state that' there is no recourse for a club if the coiirao they might of him from further duty In that game, but that a jcisiona given IB out of order. The rules that under no circumstan- ces shall of the umpires judgment ind'fre'cision on a piay bo disputed." according to Spald- ing, and tlie league'constitutionally is playing under these ;rules Point two" Is particularly ridiculous. Th-e 'bases were there'to touch, im- material of their size or whether they were' spiked or were not. Taking War- 'ner's contention'' as correct ' ers would be abl-e to "cut" pleased. Failure to touch'-the bases is considered bush ball at its worst. The rules say all the bags must be touched or the player pays the pen- alty. Protest three .is .again a matter.of the umpire's judgment and there is no recourse, .and who .is going .to sub- stantiate the fact, if the words of the be Regarding protest four the Herald sought a statement from Umpire Wheeler but found that gone .to 'work in fields. But this much .was vouched for in ;favor of. the. umpire, that upon a certain player "intimating to him that he had ia friend who was financially interest- 'ed in, the outcome .of the match, he, Wheeler, was for instantly throwing up his job as umpire and begged the' teams .to get.some one else, the statement that be would not be ac- cused of having, money on a game that he It .might he said further In Wheeler's favor that the .decisions handed, out -by him in the .game seemed .with the ap- proval of tho spectators and the too. There was not even av- erage kicking. The above remarks are certainly not made through prejudice.. In fact at this end the feeling was generally for Warner to win. If Warner's-pro- test were worth anything nine out of every ten games in the country would bo protested. ..The executive bf ,the..league. consider the. matter ami If .the Warner club ,haa further claims .can. sub-; atantiato the present ones the, south- ern division champions may, he ijuro of getting a square deal.
