That was decided yesterday when the Ontario Jockey Club directors granted the use oi' Woodbine to the Toronto Hunt. Club for an open air horse show on May 24 and 25 and to permit, tlie running of the King's Plate. The purse of $3,000 in added money and the fifty guineas donated by His Majesty will lie given by the Ontario Jockey (Tub which 'will receive no revenue of any kind in return for the disbursement. No other races titan the plate will be allowed at the show, nor will any betting bo in any way sanctioned or permitted -on premises.

Denver, Feb. * 14. - Fred Fulton, contender for the, heavyweight boxing championship, won from Tom Mo-Mahon of New Castle, Fa., hereof on-day night when. Referee "Abe" Pollock of Denver stopped a scheduled 15-round bout in the fourth round, wheir McMahon was hanging on to the ropes, beaten. Pollock awarded the decision to Fulton. Kulton gave McMahon a severe beating. The Pennsylvania battler was unable to get under Fulton's* long reach and Kulton drove lefts and rights to McMahon's fnco at will. McMahon landed only four idea 14 blows during tiie fight, while Kulton cut McMahon's face with Ud'i ami right jabs and closed McMahon's right eye. At the end of the third round McMahon wad groggy.

McMahon di'l not seem to he able to continue and I Itefereo Pollock awarded the fight to ! Kulton. tional agreement for the government of organized baseball recently pro-mulgufed to all Ip.igues and chilis has become operative throughout the country. It has been signed by Presidents Tener and Johnson (>f the major leagues, as party of the first part, and President M. H. Sexton of the National Association of Minor Leagues, party of the second part. The work of revising tiie former agreement was chiefly done by Chairman Herrmann of the national commission. Legislative faults and abuses of rules which have been uncovered during Hie last i;i years are sought to be remedied in this revision. Hereafter all disputes between major and minor loapu'1 (dubs will bo adjusted by the commission, the minor league president and the secretary of tiie national aaso'dat ion. Formerly the national commission was sole arbitrator. The period fur drafting players from minor leagues will be from September *H> to 25. five clays later than formerly, and cancelation of any draft must be madeVithin -4 hours. Clubs can not have nmre than eight plfcyers out on option at. any time, including those/ sent our for a second time. A player purch:tsert from a class AA league, may remain with the minor league until the. close of the season, instead of reporting immediately. Included in the agreement are several concessions made to the players' organization in I90it by the baseball powers, summarized as follows: MuJtt Get 10 Days' Notice Ten days' notice in writing must be given to a major league player, and five days to ;i class AA or class A plaver when unconditionally released. Written notice of conditions of transfer must be furnished to any player released to another club. A player shall be declared a free ageut in case all conditions of a player's contract as agreed to by the parties are not written into the contract and the offending club or its manager chall be fined in amounts ranging from $100 to $501'. Traveling expenses, including sleepers and meals en route, must be paid major league players from their homqp to training ramps. A player who has been in the major leagues for 1" years can not he released to a minor league, except he is wilfing to make such transfer, ami all other major league clubs have waived on his Fprviccp. Must Get Copy of Contract Two new sections of the agreement cover the provisions restricting the sending of a player to a lower league before he has been offered to class AA and class A leagues, thus keeping him in the highesl classification his skill may warrant. A copy of his contract, which shall be considered an original, must be furnished the player. Hereafter when either major league certifies that amendment to the rules is necessary Hie national commission shall set a date not later than March .1 of any year for a meeting of the rules committee, consisting of three members from each of * the major leagues and one from the minor leagues. A majority vote shall be necessary to adopt, review or repeal a rule. Place and da^te of such meetings shall be arranged by the major league presidents, who shall act, alternately, as*'Chairman of the committee. 1 1 With the Nrennan-Kdss bout scheduled for next Tuesday night Hie Lius have, forgotten for a time that Clonic Tait has promised \u exhibit, his wares here against a real initi'-artisf. However Tait still has his eyes turned this way. A letter received yesterday from Canadian champion now in Winnipeg states that he isn't over-anxious to meet Phil Itloom. the tough lightweight from N e w Y 0 r 1;. In fact he thinks Lethbridge is getting pretty classy bringing in boys like Bloom all the way from Chicago. However if Tait "doesn't care to sample Bloom's offerings maybe he wouldn't mind hooking up with the lad pictured above, Neal Allison of Waterloo, Iowa. Allison is a young boy and a comer who is making a good mark foi himself, and he is dead anxious to meet Tait. Allison has a personal friend in Lethbridge in Charlie Cave, and wants to come to Lethbridge. He says if Tait will rieet him and doesn't want to meet Phil Itloom he will stick around a couple of weeks and meet Mr. Bloom himself. Which looks pretty fair. Kurther negotiations are now being carried on with Tait and the fans will know i^i a few days whether they will have the privilege of seeing him in action here before the end of the season. dime during the ambulance fund three- enshion billiard tournament. Kiechkef-er of Chicago, world's champion, last nigot camei within one inning of tying the world's record for the lowest number of innings in a 50-point game. Kiechkcfer defeated George Moore of New York. 50 to in .;7 innings, making his seventh straight victory. The record is rhirf.r-six innings, held by McCotirl of Cleveland. Kiechkefer in a previous game also ran out in innings. f ; \'"w York. Fob. FJ - d-orgc Whitman, tin- Toronto outfielder has been j soid to the L'oston Red Sox, it was an-noiim ed hero this afternoon.

Hemy Door of New Orleans was referee. ! I CURLING The curlers were hard at it again last night and four good games were played the three in the Wright Shield j resulting in wins for Aird oyer Nel-t son. Leech over Marrs and Kirkham I over Davidson. In Uie Colts Dr. Gib-f son's Terriers put it over \Y. L. Mc-Ivenzie's Yolts. The draw for tonight: Aird vs, Shepherd, (Wright Shield 1. Dr. Gibson vs R. A. Smith, tColts). S. Smith vs J. C. Hendry, (Colts). Jno. Hied vs R. It. Davidson,^(Summit). The winner of tiie Aird-Shepherd game plays Kirkham to get into the finals of the-Wright Shield. The Bonspiel The bonspiel committee were in receipt of a letter from Johnny Bruce, the veteran curler of the local club, who is at present on hisN'anch. Johnny may not be able to come in to curl ! at the bonspiel, but he certainly does | not forget the boys. We see by some of the correspondents' letters, in the Herald that the outside clubs are coming in strong with blood in their eye for the bonspiel, which starts Monday fnext. The committee is getting the prizes ready and the weather prophets predict cold weather for ten days, so it looks as if nothing could postpone ! the "curlers* days of real sport" this time. CHICAGO MAN IS CHAMP BOWLER Joe Shaw Wins Singles Title at Minneapolis Tournament 1 I CADDOCK WOnVt WRESTLE now t Bijou Motor Parlors Limited THE HOUSE OF SERVICE FIFTH STREET SOUTH LETHBRIDGE, ALTA. f Omaha, Neb., Feb. 14. - Earl Cad-doek, champion wrestler, will not take part, in any more wrestling matches for a while. is in the training camp at Camp Dodge.

The locals are (looking for nothing other than thc toughest game yet. taking full stock of Steed, the Stirling coach's statements. The Stirling team will very likely consist of two Micholaons, Spackman, Brandley and Ostlund. Their centre, "Tiny" Micholson. is the biggest man in the south country and forms the hub of their play. Spackman and Brandley, both played five years ago, and Ostlund was seen in action on . several occasions. Their second team is in good shape ami will take some (beating. The local second team will need to line up their strongest. f 1 Minneapolis, Feb. 14.-Joe -^.haw of Chicago won the singles .championship and Li. YYilke and C.
