E. Painter, of Taber, was a visitor In the city yesterday and called on the Herald. Mr. Painter ac-conipanied the. Taber hockey team to j Calgary on their recent trip, and re-jpbrted the matnh for the Herald. He is confident that Taber can beat the Shermans of Calgary when the teams meet again, [which will be next Monday, in all probability, and according 'to Mr. Painter,- Calgary people are afraid such'will he the case. ''The 'Chefs' never created a better impression thai} when they tied the Shermans, Calgary's premier hockey team, the other ,night, and a great crowd will be o.ut at the next match," said Mr. Painter. ( The 'Chefs' will make a tour of the north pext week, playing in the principal towns along the line of march to; Edmonton,; where they wiil cross sticks with the lhest they have in the: capital .

There is {^movement on foot here now, started by close friends of Harry Edwards, the "'fight, club owner and manager, to get Thorpe to sign a contract placing himself absolutely under the care of a-competent trainer and boxer. Harry Bdwards .discussed the matter today from the. standpoint of a fight promoter.  �- � . � � '�� "There is no reason 'why Thorpe should not be trained to become a heavyweight, chamriion," said Ed- wards. "He has shown' that he has the nerve and his all-round ability in athletics, shows that he has the brains He excels in almost everything he attempts. He has a magnificent physique, and he has the weight. Put him in the hands of.a capable trainer and there is no telling- what he would do. I believe he has the mailing of a first-class pugilist in him.'.' According to. the plans," which are EtllJ in a formative state, Thorpe will get a guarantee of a lzrge salary for five years, whether he makes good or not, Besides this, he will receive a percentage of the profits in every battle in which he takes part/ Cardston, Feb. 5.-Magrath, 5; Cardstcn, 0, was what the. score board read after the hockey match last night. The Magrath team arrived on the local; and the game began about 9 o'clock. Both teams were in excellent trim, and the few spectators thnt turn-Ed ^oBt were given the worth of their money. . Magrath had tho stars, though, and the puck was not in play long till this was quite apparent. Men like Beasley~ are tco fast for most teams in'the west, and pitted against Cardston, with their little practice, victory was an .easy matter.-Scott 'abd � ..-Mathiesao,' for ;Magrath' also played good hockey. Cardston's defence was the strongest part of its team. Lynn played a good game at point, and.Sugdon on left wing, showed that he knew the game.' Where Cardston fell down was in lack of practice. The pace got too fast and they went behind. The ice-was good, but the light poCT for hockey. Following is the line-upi Magrath-A. Mercer; goal;. Mathie-son, point; J.

Rsferee-Dr. Christie, Quebec, Feb. 5.-This evening the Stanley Cup holders turned the tables on their old rivals, the Wanderers, by defeating them by the close' margin of one goal, the malch ending, Quebec 4, Wanderers 3. The first period was hotly contest-ed, the play being both fast and even, the Wanderers having slightly the best of it, but in the other periods the Quebec men were certainly well to the fore. In the second periqd Boyes was giv en a major penalty for striking Hall on the head with his stick. For Quebec, Moran, Crawford, Mummery and Hall were the stws. Boyes, O.

" 5.T-Tb� Toronto* have come into their own. The blue shirts handed Ottawa one of the most decisive beatings of the-year at the Arena tonight, a shut out; at that. Ottawa never had a look in at any stage of the game. Ridpath's men had the-play; for fifty-five minutes out of the hour, and the final score was 2 to 0. It was Toronto's first home fixture under the seven-men style, and it is safe to say that the crowd was anything but pleased with the brand of hockey offered. Seven-men hockey as played by the amateurs Is good, but the seven-men games of the professionals are not. , .The players were in each other's r ay all night, and no combination was tried. Tho thrilling rushes that featured the earty season's play were impossible. Six-men hockey is Toronto's choice. The line-up: Frank Neighbor, of the Toroutoa, improves 'with every appearance. His playing in the last two games < has been nothing short of sensational, Toronto-Holmes, goal; Marshall, point; Cameron, cover; McGlfftn, rover; Wilson, centre; Davidson, right, and Neighbor- left.
