Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 11, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Page 6 THE LETBtBRIDGE PAILY HERAIJ) *9- Moiiday, August 11,1913 STOP T POOLS" ON BALL h Proprietor of N.Y. "Bureau" Arrested for Violating Lottery Law New YorV, Aug. 9.-The first step in an attempt lo smash the "baseball pools" being conducted in New V-ork came today vith the arraignment of Henry F. Loren, arrested on a charge o� violating the state lottery laws. uLoren, it is alleged, is the head of & concern known as the Metropolitan Baseball Jni'orniation bureau. Subscribers to the "service" of the information bur?au paid 25 cents a week, according to the charges against Loren, and either selected or drew from a "blind pool" a combination of teams in the .-Vmerican, National, International and New York State leagues. The literature of the concern advertised "$1,000 in case premiums given away to subscribers of our service," and the understanding was that the combination 6i teams, scoring the most number of runs during the week drew the high prize. .'Vfter an investigation the district attorney's .oJfice decided that so many combinations ivere possible by taking teams froai four leagues, that lioren's scheme amounted to nothing more than, a lottery. Women, men and even yoiuig girls were "subscribers" of the bureau, it is declared. It IS charged that there was nothing to mark Loren's concern as an "mfcarmation bureau," and that his onh',^ business wasithe copducting ol the pool. : There arc many such concerns in New York, according to information r.eaqhiiig.;,the district attorney's office and other arrestsmav be made.

The gam? broke up to a raw. The standing in the Western Canada Cricket tournament at Winnipeg Is as follows: Team W. L. D. Pts. Manitoba A ...... 4 1 1 3 Manitoba B .. .. \. 3 I 1 2 Saskatchewan .... 2 2 0 0 Alberta........ 0 4 0 0 * * * Earl Cooper, driving a Stutz car, won the fifth annual Santa Monica road race on Saturday, making the 8.4-mile course fifty-three times in six hours one minute 52 seconds, or an average of 73.86 miles per hour. The record for 445 miles Is 74.25 miles per hour. Barney Oldfield, in a Mercer, picked by many to take first place, finished second |n six hours seven minutes 45 seconds. * * * Canadian and American oarsmen divided honors about even the opening day of the N.A.A. regatta at Boston. Toronto was the foremost winner of Canadian points. Robert Dibble, of Toronto Dons, won a senior single heat, as did J, B. Kelly, of Philadelphia. Dibble's time was the fastest. Dibble also won the quarter-mile championship from his rival, Butler, in a sensational and close race. The Argos, of Toronto, won the International fours; the Vespers, of Philadelphia, claimed a foul, but it wasn't allowed. * * * William Johnston, of San Francisco, won the New York State lawn tennis championship in the singles on .Saturday, and becomes the^successor of Maurice E. MoLoughlin, also of California. In the final match of the tournament at the Crescent Athletic club the seventeen-year-old boy defeated S. H. Voshell, of the Borough Park club at 6-4, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. The point totals were 119 to 103. * >;� * Sam Savage's declaration that he was tired of putting money into the Calgary Ball Club, which was fast becoming a financial bottomless pit, has stirred the baseball fans of Calgary, to action^ and it is now practically assured that all the rest of the home games will be played in Calgary. The threat that Edmonton might have the pleasure of watching our Brooks per-form In the last few scheduled home games in this series went-home.pretty hard; and Jate last week President Sam was interviewed by a delegation of five prominent men, representing about forty others, who proposed with some outside help to raise a certain sum Of money, v^hich would be handed over to the club on oendltfon that they would make an experiment at the next home series, and charge twenty-five cents. for general admission to the ball grounds. In a "wet" test tournament at Victoria, Medicine Hat Fire Brigade won the championship. They were quite prominent in the foot races, too. Desmond, sire of Aboyeur, winner of this year's Derby, and also of Crag-anour, which was disqualified for jostling Aboyeur, and thereby lost the Derby, was found deal In his stall recently at the Port Union stud, Adare, County Limerick^ Ireland. Up to the present Desmond's produce have won In stakes $692,435. This will probably be his best year as a sire, as so far his stock have won $90,000. * * * "Newsy" Lalonde was greatly instrumental in the Nationals winning their "Big Four" fixture at Montreal on Saturday with the Irish-Canadians. Showing a final burst of speed, the Irish-Canadians made the "Flying Frenchmen" drive at the finish to beat them by a score of 7 to 5. Greatly strengthened by the services of "Newsy" Lalonde on their home, the Nationals started out to make a runaway^race .of it, and not until the Frenchmen had 'scored otsven goals did the Irishmen seem to strike their stride. The Irish-Canadians were played to a standstill in the first two periods, while the Nation^ls^scored at most at will. * * *  A most spectacular spill marked the ruohing'vof a race at Dufferi/j Park, Toronto, last week. Jockey Stirling, who rode The Parson^ n 8 to 1 shot in the betting, was bumped, at the start and all but unseated. He gamely went on with one foot caught in the stirrup, and a strangle hold on the reins. In this awkward position he was carried along half way up the stretch before he could get his foot loose and then after running along a few strides he fell, turning a-complete somersault. His escape from � injury was miraculous. As it was he was badly shaken up anti bruised.' Nancy Orme, the horie which caused the trouble, led^ until close to the finish when Laura overhaulecl her to win by two lengths. P. Ashcrc^t .' -H/O R. Seldenbepivi^ T. Evans. ^ H. Moore....... BO V.

Hari-y Pilling will bear watching when it comes to the city championship, two weeks from,-Saturday  Some of the tyros, are practicing hard at the traps so they will be able to get full benefits from early'morning trips in their benzine buggys. Some of the baseball ^oys were out for the first tline the other night.

Social ostracism and rank rebellion marked the progress of Jack Johnson, the . black lighter, across the Atlantic, according to the .story told here today when the "Corinthian" came back from London and Havre. Ho had a merry time at sea, in spite ol the trouble his presence made the purser of the vessel. A Montreal, lady, Mrs: Jane Radford, rebelled when the pugilist and his white wife were quartered opposite her cabin, and the result of her protest was that Johnson had to be given another room. The trouble was not unexpected, tor just us soon as the "Corinthian" knew that one of her passengers vro-s to be the champion fighter she knew her troubles would not require seeking. The ship had just cleared Que-!667 l^*"^ when the Montreal lady sought the purser, and said that she -svould nob live for ten days opposite Mr. Johnson and his white wife. Tlie ofhcial tried to prove to her that he was a �yery quiet man, but his explanations did not go. Nothing but his removal would suit her. The purser sought the fighter and suggested that he take cabin No. 13, on the upper deck Where he woul
