Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta t THE tETHBRIDQE DAILY HERALD, FRIDAY, AUGUST M, If SPORTS THOSE UMPIRES A FAST GAME OF FOOTBALL s. o: E. Played a Tie Last Night There is department in which the Western Canada League of i900 stands supreme over all other organ- izations in the realm of baseball >r.d will continue to stand rupreme and alone upon the pedestal of fame 'for all time no doubt. 'Ever and anon with the inarch of time the pre-eoiin- t'lit-o it has gained in at least a single instance will be looked back upon with wonderment but not with ad- rather disgust. And that i is the umpiring. It has always been rank, crude, fierce, inefficient. t The league has been a success equal if not greater than was anticipated upon its birth. However in the mat- ter of umpiring it surely has been a sad failure. No better demonstra- J tion to decide the calibre of officials himi to ha'i-lle the indicator in this league could be derived than was made Wednesday night at the ball park when the Winnipeg Maroons j and the Lethbridge Miners battled win the game. Umpire Shuster plain- ly showed that he was inefficient when he called Larry Piper third when be surely was out feet, and the way he used Lezie n part of the-game the crowd began to f corner strikes mortifying. It sit up and take notice- when the Cai-1 made the grand stand creak and its Iks got busy as the game was draw- j occupants groan. Was it delibe.'-ite j ing to a close and succeeded in dup- j robbery? Sure. But Shuster "lit Heating the score made by the Eng- high climax of and show lishmen in the first half. It was himself up' in his meanest dress when born of despera-: for no apparent reason he o as Holmes, the (Maroon 'h.'rd Vbasenian to the bench and fined him The Caledonians and Sons of Eng- land put up one of the most inttrest- ing and fastest games of ball .that have been played this year. It was good football from start to 1 finish and although the Englishmen promise of a win in the earlier a. case of courage tion and their courage rose daylight, fell. Th'e game was called at 6-45 and th-> Englishmen, had it all their own way for a while holding the _ ball in. the Scotchmen's territory the biggest part of the time. Clark the- right forward missed some good chances to shoot in the earlier part of the game al- though he made some excellpnt rush- es later in '..The Sons got a corner Mck on the the kick 'off but Boss secured the ball and got it safely harm's way. The Callies were "being crowded pretty hard and two more corners followed closely but with no.reaults. Then the ball got down to the Englishmen's ground but Clark sent it back with, a .kick and a bunt i not the usual five, the unusual ah extreme fifteen but was inhuman enough to "take advan- tage of his little brief authority and had the call to impose a fine'of twen- ty-five dollars and put the player cut of the grounds to boot. Now. if Holmes was a scrappy or a rowdy player, and had done some- thing radically wrong and against the rules the purpose of the ih-e might be understood. Holmes at- Itj? when conducted himself :to all appearances in. an entirely inoffens- manner and what he was for no one could tell. The offender ap- pealed to the would-be-IT-man with the indicator and important bearing almost_ placed it between the asking him why he -was being p-i.al- but almost did't cou-nt much. .Then Chiswick, who played a whirl of a game, got busy asd some close 'work took place around the Callies' goal but nothing doing for a score yet. They kept the ball pretty well for- ward almost the -whole time. He was everywhere at once. Head or feet, it was all the same to him, and he put it where it counted too. There seemed to be an 'over supply of, corner lacks off -the Scotchmen, 2 more following in quick succession. The ball was no sooner out of the "way -when it was very 'much in the way again. Chiswick made a pretty shot right- through the centre to Boss who got it safely. Another corner off Anderson's head went behind the goal, spoiling ano- ther chance for a score. Holberton got a fine chance a little later but went -wide and Faunch got busy on another good shot and hit the ridge pole. The Callies were beginning to think it was getting warm alright and by a strenuous effort got "ie sphere down to, their opponent's stronghold. Page had a good chance but shot away high. McMurtrie on. the left wing had the field to him- self for a couple of good tries a little .later but proved that even the canny 'Scot gets excited and" hasty some- times and Mac iailedi to make thp chances good. It was give, and take then for a short time and the hall made fast _ progress' up and down the field until toward end of the first half when it struck again on the Callies' ground and Holberton placed it between the posts making the first score of the evening for the S. 0. E.'s. 'Mr. E. Tabrum was refers and it must be said that he handled the game Lethbridge is for- tunate in possessing a footballer whose knowledge of the game is so extensive as Mr. Tabrum's and of impartiality there can be no doubt. The second half op-ned- up in pret- ty much the same fashion as the first but was met with an icy and no answer, other than to off the field. Larry Piper, the Maroon nianag jr., got somewhat inquisitive over the -ub j ject and made a like request and had a time v.-atch pulled on him. So Lar- ry took to the grass in fear of the fate of his 'team mate. If the President allows fines like this to hold good he is liable to get himself in bad odor all over the cir- cuit. This league can't stand it and such- an exorbitant penalty is rare even in the big leagues. He doesn't give the players a show and creates discontent. LETHBRIDGE CITY TEAM FOR CALGARY To Play in Bennett Shield Next Week The city football executive met last night, the most important 'inp the selection of learn to meet the Calgary Caledonians la .lie Bennett competition ,'o in Ca.-rary some tim week. The finalists in this ar.- eligible to play Ia the People's Shield which is to be competed for on Friday next. Much regret is exressed that "Bob" Chiswick, star centre half and captain of the S. 0. E. team will not be able to travel with the team to Calgary. His place, however, will be ably filled by Bill White, of the Callies. The following is the team selected with Anderson as captain: Goal, Boss; backs, Farris and An- derson; haf-backs, Stephenson, Whits, McIIvennie; forwards, from Holberton, Oliver, Bartholomew, Barber and McMunrie. Crawford, Page, Joyce. This team should give ;i good account of themselves, give the champions a run for their money. When we met them on May 24th, the Callies only j and contented sturdy defence. the Englishmen keeping the ball jthe winning goal five pretty well forward till it began to grow a little dusk Tvhen they fell back with a Then the Scotchmen sounded the 'war note of Lochiel' and swooped down on thf bent -o destruction, but its coming was de- layed.

The caniv was .soon after as it was almost impossible to see ball players across the, field. TKa't meant a tie and so victory is to bo decided.
