"One of these days the fans of "Lethbvidge are going wake up to Lite fact that lJhil Harrison is h top-uotcher and is going to clean up on Dillon1, O'Dowd and a lot more of the middleweights in the next year or two," declared a fistic fan to the Herald yesterday. He was evidently in receipt of sominside information for he observed that the Chicago club bad been keeping Harrison under cover. "He'lf go out and clean up for them, and some day the fans here will consider Young Hoss did mighty well to stay ten rounds. You mark my words." In his opinion Harrison is a better man that Kraniue K. O. Brennan who meets Hoss here on Tuesday evening next, and the coming bout will be a better one because the two men will be mere evenly matched and Ross will be in bolter shape than he was last time. That is the opinion of tbo majority of the fans who want to see Brennan in action before they bot against the local favorite. Big crowds have been up to the Plaza, every day this week to see Ross work out, and declare that lie never was in better shape for a hard mill. . . . for that purpose by the presidents of the National and American Leagues. The result of their deliberations was announced at the close of the annual schedule meeting of the American league last night, including the ten per cent war tax the list of prices will bo as follows: 2j-ceut seats, 30 cents each: .10-ccnt seats, r�5 cents; 75-cent seats, SO cents; $1 and %i:i:> box sea flu, $1.1 o and .$1.10 respectively. Those prices were adopted to avoid^tho trouble and delay which would he caused by making change in pennies. The excess charges over the amount of the regular war tax of 10 per ceut. of tbo and 75-cent admissions and the 1.26 box scats may be retained or given to charity at the discretion of Uie individual clubs. The playing schedule of I'A games' for the lhi.7 season was adopted at the American League's session, and it was announced that owing to the difficulty in obtaining drill sergeants there would be no military drilling exercises for the players the coming season. President Krazee of the Boston Red Sox, and Connie Mack of the Philadelphia Athletics, were in consultation for a long time regarding the players the Boston club is to give in return for First Baseman Melnnes. Four players are to bo sc^t to Philadelphia but at the end of the conference no definite arrangements had been made and it looked as if the Boston management would have to purchase them in order to complete the deal. 1 Clark Griffith, having obtained the necessary waivers on Catcher John Henry of the Washington club, sold him outright to the Boston Nationals. and Cranbrook.

They want to see him in action against men of good calibre. Down Winnipeg way they have a sneaking feeling that Bonny Haskell is just good enough to take Tait's crown, and Haskell, in a recent letter, voiced the same opinion. He lias been training all winter, for just this chance and is going to make tho best, of it when he steps Into tho ring here on February L\Sth. CONFIDENTIAL, BUT ALL HEARD Little Town Team Was Too Strong For Them-Juniors Win Game Three Deaf Baseball Officials Held Conference As for Phil Bloom, he stands pretty close to Benny Leonard in the elite, of tlie lightweights. A clash betweeu Bloom and Tait bcrc would be a fitting climax to a good season's boxing sport.

All three of these estimable gentleman happened to be extremely deaf, and when they had to hold a meeting about some new-players McCarthy had discovered you'd think the root was coming down. AID three were bellowing at the top of their voices, and the uproar, roused people in buildings half a mile away. The DetYibnrtge "Y" basketball teams went to Stirling last night, winning the j junior game but receiving a severe ' drubbing by the seniors. -The scoria respectively were 33-1.7 'and 30-G5. The first game, although well contested, was an easy victory for the "Y". The Stirling boys, it is easy to see, were green, and although they played good combination, the shoot-in:? was not accurate. The local 2nd team, at first lost in the mysteries of the strange floor, played,a good game all the way through, but their shooting was poor in places. For the locals Will" Murray played a whirlwind game, making continuous brilliant individual dribbling plays down the floor which very often meant a basket for the Jack Shand played his usual steady game.
