FRIDAY, AUGUST 21, 1914 THE LETHBR1DGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE Hit STRIFE KNOCKS CUBS OUI )issension Among Players the Cause of Chicago's Failure to Hold Position (By Chrltty Mathewson) Tho start on this western IIL-asion in totter shape, than., they have een on either of the two preceed-ng trips. When the Eastern clubs go vest, there will be two important uertlona to be decided on the trip One is how high the Boston Braves an climb and the other is whether the can get BO far m front on this nvailon that club can' afford to laekeh up a little hit. Up to this sea-ODi ire have always been a good road earn, tut our road work has fallen own, this year. I figure the Cubs to be stopped. The hree out of four games that the Slants took from them when they played at the Polo grounds last were lot responsible for this so much as he run' of defeats they met: a Phila-ielphia A little row helped up he playing of the clubs while it -was 11 'the: series wiUi the Phillies. O'bay suddenly decided to take out he veteran, Frank Schulte, between he games of a double-header in this series, and he sent Kiuse-y to take Schulte's place without tell-n j the latter anything about it. This naturally Irritated- Schulte, so that ho sought out O'Da.v when Henry got lack to the hotel and bawled him out. "You're indefinitely de-. dared O'Day. I'll 'wait until I hear from Mr. Thomas to replied Schulte. Then ic threatened to jump to the Federal eagne, and began to flirt with its agents. And there the situation stood when .he team came to New'York, with the players taking sides "and the club Ips-jig1 its punch: "Knisely did not make a ill from the 'time: ho got into the pahie regularly, and 'Schulte kept em-'iiaaiziiig this tact to O'Day. "He hasn't gob a 'hit since he came nto the league." said one of the Schulte's' side. Finally---Rogei' -Bresnahan appeared n the role of' a peacemaker, and the row- was adjusted. It seems strange to think ot Bresnahan as a pcacemak-Br in a -conflict-to which O'Day is one There is no doubt but that the squabble hurt the. team, as sciuabbles lave hurt other teams in the past. Such rows have split up the Clevelpnd e ub this year, and a mixup ripped open the Boston Red Sox when Stahl was turned out. But I don't the 'trouble on Chicago team hurt Chicago any more than the suspension of McGraw [Or arguing with the umpires hurt the giants. The team was run during 'Mac's" absence by "Mike" Donlin, "Larry" Doyle and myself, with Just outside' the gate, where he tould see what was goiiig on and Football Clash of the Season Tomorrow IRES Philadelphia 1, St. UmU 0.

LETHB Tomorrow evening at the Athletic Park at 6 o'clock sharp, the football clash de fuxe of the sea-ion Is scheduled to take place. Medicine Hat Callies and Leth-brldge Callles will stage a battle for the Bennett Shield, the emblem of the championship of Alberta In the world of soccer. Medicine Mat champions will come here practically as dark horses. Very little is known of the calibre of the Medicine Hat team, but one thing we know, and that 'lo that they don't do things by halves in the 'Hat, and there is no doubt but what the champions of the gas city are coming here with a team that will be worthy of the Callies' steel. There is, too, a super- amount of rivalry between Medicine Hat and Lethbrldge in all lines, and to hand a nice little package to BALL PARK, At football plenipotentiaries will suit the boys here down to the ground, and they are going to bs out with the best talent they poa-sess to, turn the trick. The Lethbrldge Callies, champions of the City and District Football league, are in.ths race for the Bennett Shield with might and main, and if they don't land the trophy their opponents will surely know that Lethbrldge has been a factor in the contest, it Is a remarkable fact that the champions in the four big cities of the province -who are entered (or the Bennett Shield are all Callies. Fame and -glory to the Scotchmen, and may the local Scots top the heap when the battle Is over. Every loyal football fan In the city will be out to see the game tomorrow night.

HoWr ever, the. club came through the series in fair shape. The Federal league is stirring again. Word comes to me from a Chicago source that the Feds .are trying to sign up two' of the biggest players in the American league, figuring 'that by getting these two, they can- make their league. All kinds ot money ms been offered in advance, and sufficient security to protect the players for. three years.

Not a shot was fired by the Belgians when the entry Into Brussels was yesterday by an advance guard of German cavalry. This advance guard, it was reported, were to be fol- lowed today by a strong contingent of German troops 'encamped in the vi- cinity. After the departure of the Bel- gian troops from the capital, communi- cation was cut off between that city and other parts of Belgium and abroad. The temporary capital of the coun- try Antwerp whither the Belgians have retired, is understood to be strongly fortified, and military correspondents declare the preparations for Its de- fence extend over an enormous area, while It has been provisioned for 2 British and French warships bom- barded and greatly damaged Cattaro, an Austrian sea port on Wednesday. Libau, the Russian Baltic seaport, was badly damaged during Its two- hour bombardment by a German fleet, according to the captain of a Swedish steamer. The inhabitants were panic stricken. German warships are, reported to have destroyed the harbor works at Hangon, Finland. Japan Is making active preparations in view of the approaching expiration on Sunday of the time limit of its ulti- matum to Germany. It is expectco1 she will at once move on Klao Chau, the German protectorate in China. The Germans have taken Brussels, the capital of Belgium, already rich In warfare's history, and in art and cul- ture. It was here that the Duke of Wellington danc.sd at nighty and sailed forth In the morning .to meet his army at Quatrebras for the battle of Wat- erloo. Once strongly fortified, the cap- ital for years has been without arma- ment with which to resist attacks. The German army, it was officially reported last was pressing Its advantage at Brussels by throwing large numbers of troops Into the city, while the Belglums were retreating unmolested to Antwerp, to which city the seat of government was moved a while ago. The official announcement of the German victory at Brussels did not mention the casualties on either side. French official advices today are that Mulhausen, in Alsace, had been recaptured by the French from the Germans, who were said to be retreat- ing on the Rhine, but In Lorraine, it was admitted, the Germans had forced he French to fall back on their fort- ress.
