TEAM CAME OFF VIC TORIOUS" ( jlaymoftd, Jan. 18.-A team from iW Lethbridge Y.M.CJV. played bas-"ketjjjifll Jjere," last night with, the Knight Academy and were defeated � 20"to 15, -The1 first ten minutes the K. Ay ^oyi had it all their awn way� mak-ihgathe 'first basket in less than a miUute after the whistle blew, which - started the game, and in just ten minutes the score stood 8-0 in favor of thcK. A. . The Y. M..C. A. awoke to the situation and landed four baskets in rapid succession, which startled the K.,A .team into speedy-action, who immediately pitched two"field baskets,- and' then the first half was �over .with a score of 13-5 in favor of th&.K. A. �There were few fouls called on either side during the first half. .^ SECOND HALF Turney of the Y M.C A., had a fine chance to land a basket but failed to throdgh. The first foul was /; called'on the '.Y.M.C.A, ,�' - .: :A}len did some splendid work in ' s"the second half and seemed able to ^toTbaskets at will. , �. ANXIOUS MOMENTS ^'.'

As a matter of 1 Tact, It is doubtful that any of the Managers of the other major league clubs, who bid for his services, had seen him play, but all apparently trusted that the man who was recently crowned in the Olympic games as the world's greatest athlete, would make a valuable acquisition to major league baseballs Although Thorpe's records in the Eastern Carolina League are not noteworthy, Mc-Graw','who pays little attention to averages, is. certain that the Indian has the making of a great hall player. Thorpe's play in the South was as a pitcher, outfielder and first baseman. In the box he won a fiew more games than he lost, and in fielding he had a percentage of over .900..He Was not a scientific batter, swinging out at the hall freely, and not being satisfied unless he hit it out of the lot His average, however, wa� over .250. He was regarded as a wonderful thrower, and a speedy base runner, however. *- | Chief -Davis � received a letter from Mr. Flanagan in which he expressed a desire to travel westward and shake hands with some of the Toronto old boysj among then Chief Davis and -, Chief Cuddy of Calgary. Fe stated in his letter that he expected to come to the west, probably next summer, and if he does, he will sure come to Lethbridge. Mr. Flanagan? will'be m\jst welcome. -���;> . .,. . 1 ----~ Dufour and Atkinson have Tefused to jump the amateurs for the Ottawa PrOB." '�'/..." . Vancouver, Feb. 4,-Outplaying their opponents in every period and finishing on the long end of a 7 to 4 score, Victoria tonight defeated Vancouver's all-stars before one of the largest crowds ever gathered in the local arena.- Victoria went into the lead within five minutes of the start, and the issue was never in doubt from then on. Victoria's superior all-round play kept Vancouver back on the defence, and the forwards were unable to make any progress against Victoria's defence. The league leaders outskated, Victoria in all three periods and their shots came from ail angles. Vancouver showed best form in the first twenty minutes, but they were cutlucked, Lindsay .stopping shots that seemed impossible to get. Progers and L. Patrick starred for Victoria, while Jack, McDonald and. Kendall were Vancouver's most effective workers. Vancouver played away below form, and failed to show any signs � of combination throughout. Tonight's victory practically gives Victoria the championship. The Senators have a long lead, and have yet to meet their first defeat on home ice. The line-up: Vancouver-Parr, goal; � F.

Whether or not the limit already decided upon will be large enough will be hotly debated, no-doubt. The largest cities of the league will attempt to have the limit boosted m-all probability and the others will certainly.oppose^anything of the sort Wflien the small clubs estimate their probable receipts for ,the.year and by past records this, can be; guaged very accurately, they find that to .have a salary limit of something like ?1,800 is out of the question and; not commensurate with the revenue, Lethbridge is one of the clubs that cannot afford the maximum -salary;limit and will not likely agree to anything over the amount agreed upon; here a -week ago Monday, when Messrs Savage and, Grey met'the local magnates. The salaries that a club pays its players is a vital factor, in a' minor league's success. That the salary list should be limited is not disputed, 'hot It's: one \thing to make a limit and another to enforce it. How to enforce the limit as big a question as how much shall the.limit be, at the meeting next Friday. Of course there" will be no trouble agreeing upon a limit if'Edmonton and Calgary are going sinto the-league with the. intention of not heeding the limit and doing as teams of the past have' done, without exception, in the Western Canada league-' they all (have taken as1 much liberty as suited their convenience in the past It is no easy matter to enforce the limit for there are many past. It is no easy matter to enforce the limit for' their are many channels by which the rule can be evaded and over-run without detection, although the work of the .offender'can be easily felt. � A salary limit is the only fair' means- by -which a small club can ever hope to cope with places which have a gate revenue three and -four, times as great, and it is .of the utmost importance for the success of the league"'that all clubs-should be anxious to dwell within bounds of the. rule, but such is not the'ease, and if any means can be originated ' at the meeting Friday"whereby the clubs kept from:overstepping the .salary limit, one of the strongest rivets to solidify the. Western Canada League will be driven. Cincinnati, O., Feb. 4.-In "a- letter to President Herrmann of th'^ Cincinnati National league baseball club, received today, Manager.Joe Tinker announced, that he had abandoned all'ef-forts". to "obtain the services of Johnny Kling, the catcher, foT the Cincinnati :_team. He also said in the letter that he was convinced that Kling, .would not play professional ball this year.
