Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 7, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta CO" ALL THE LOCAL WORLD'S FOScMOST FVENT8 LIN! UP AIM HAT Fate of .Baseball '� in Western Canada to he Decided Today Harmonious "'Meeting Predicted and Nominal'Salary Limit WillPrevail WHAT WILL THE ANSWER BE ? Thos. Long, C. J. Eckstorm, and bert and Medicine Hat. The local pol- (Special to The Herald) Medicine Hat. Pel). 6.-The fate of baseball in Western Canada is bdin settled in Medicine Hat, today. Sam Savage, Calgary: Frank Gray and R Horner, ofljdmontoa; C. J. Eckstorm anfl T. Long, of Letkbridge, and A. J. N. Terril, of Medicine Hat,-, got together and held a preliminary meeting in the morning, going over the constitution to expedite .matters for the afternoon meeting.^ All eight clubs will he represented when the meeting opens at two o'clock, and all are willing to enter the league if suitable terms of salary limit and' game guarantees 'are made. It is expected that the sal-aiy-limit, will $9, agreed at either $1,-400 or $1,600, including manager's salary. Question'of grounds is causing .'worry to-two-or three clubs, but it is thought this can be arranged before the season opens. The, meeting^tiis afternoon has'every prospect of being harmonious and successful. "Jack" Morrison are the local delegates at the meeting of the Westfcrn Canada League today at Medicine Hat. These three gentlemen are thor. oughly posted on baseball affairs of Western Canada, as well as the local situation, and the meeting of the Leth-bridge enthusiasts at the Dallas Hotel last night for the purpose of sifting .the local situation and getting down to cold facts and brass tacks felt assured that the interests of the club here would be competently and careful.'/ ICC'' "�.' r^-*'- *h*t* marinates. Of course, they are instructed delegates, but not tied down and anything they do outside of the plans 'adopted last night will be. accepted as the best under the circumstances that arise at the meeting at the Hat today. Just what the local club will advocate at Medicine Hat will not be given out minutely until the meeting. A conference on the side is aimed at by the local delegates of the three minor cities of the league whose interests are identical: Lethbrldge, Prince Al- ley will be exploited to these other two cities, and It they fall In line with the major cities of the league will be asked to conform with a policy. .Though it hits them pretty hard, it is the only fair and square policy by whlchr the league "can ever hope to be a success and continue from year to year. This Lethbridg^ policy may cause consternation in the ranks at certain quarters, and the local delegates might be referred to as hon compos mentis, but be that as It may, cold facts and figures and past eAjiii. ttu-ces have taught many lessons, and have pointed a way by which the Western Canada league has a fighting chance for its life, something It has never had from It's inauguration. It may be said that the local policy is of the mutual order, In which a good healthy spilt of all gate receipts, both at home and away, will be included, and falling this a flat rate basis per in respect to the population of the various cities.. A salary limit of $1400 will be advocated.

McGraw has- beaten it into his club that batting and base running are the two big factors in tile winning of games and ihe will v 'not endure having anyone on his team' * who refuses to learn thiB lesson. On the defence the club is mediocre in . - :tHe extreme, with a poor outfield, an is- Inferior shortstop, and an erratic, thpugK hard-working second baseman. iButV with good pitching, the dub goes far because McGraw has the men on their toes all the time .and never allows them to let up.for a moment. :^':>"'^i^9y.,r.'are>taiigtatV'Uiat' the scoring of runs is the main thing in a ball game ir-^.'.'afl.d.i their energies are constantly ..... tient to that,end.

When stacked up;against a smooth outfit like the Cubs or the Boston Americans they .show their lack of re,al class, but they .win ' their pennants by playing their ;&;�;-!-Teiy';fbest against the jweaker clubs &-'in>,the league, which is part of Mc- Vancouver, B. C, Feb. G. - The growing popularity of ice hockey on the coast is attested bj- the large at-1 tendance recorded at the various games played so far in Vancouver and Victoria. At the capital the seating accommodations of the arena:hooves sold out for every game and standing room has been utilized, making the average attendance at the Victoria james range over 4,00ft. In Vancouver 'the, tremendous seating accommodations of the arena which allows for 10,500 spectators makes a 4,000 crowd look small, and even an attendance of 6,700, the official figure given dut for the game last Tuesday, L.ij.ul, I^ala :L^t \'z ;r r"�-T�- moth building. The crowd on Tuesday night, it was announced today, was 500 short of the record attendance at the opening'game of the season., when 7,200 spectators witnessed the play.- No.other city in the Dominion has seen such a large attendance at a hockey game as at ; the game here on Tuesday, for the simple reason that no other rink in the Dominion-will come within 1,500 or 2,000 of accommodating that many spectators.

Local players have charged that the four players have agreed among themselves that the club must meet the demands of the quartette before any will sign.

Coleman, Feb. 6. - The Coleman hockey team played two games this week, losing one to Blairmore and winning one from Frank. The game with Blairmore was played on the local ice Tuesday night, with the thermometer hovering around 20 to 2o degrees below zero. The home team were a trifle too sure of- winning, holding the visitors aSJ'"easy," and the result showed their "mistake. During the first 20 minutes of play both teams scored twice, and in tlis second period the visitors shot the puck into the net twice while Coleman scored' one. Thete was nothing fto.'ncr in senriiler iHiyv. ifi'.-thp final .period, and it .was anyone's game up to the call of time. The visitors won by superior combination and team work, in which the locals developed a decided falling off from their usual standard. The final score was -1-3 in favor of Blairmore. New York, Feb. G.-No use talking about luck unless you give the palm to Tom O'Rourke. The New York manager and procoter sailed a few days ago with big Al Palzer for Paris, where Palzefi. will make a couple of flights in preparation for a twenty-round contest at the Hippodrome in Paris next June with Jack Johnson. Al Lippe has practically closed the match. This will be Johnson's first Spearnnee in the ring since he gave Jim Flynn such an artistic trimming at Las Vegas, N. M., on the Fourth of July. get back to O'Rourke.

How any one could get excited Over Pateer is a mystery. All the wise ones were next to the'fact that he was.nothing more than a dub and not a man who could fight championship battles and win them. If Jack Johnson i� not as feeble as Uncle Tom, of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" fame, when.he meets Palzer, he will give him "theK worst beating he ever received.
