Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 7, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LKTHBKIDGE DAILY HERALD* ~LTL ALU THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS AND WELLS McCarey Bent on Bringing the Two Together July 4 at Los Angeles IE- Los Angeles, Jan. C.-Boinbavdier Wells may have the first chance at Luther McCarty's newly won ring honors, and at the same time a chance lo take the title to England. The proposed Fourth of July International match is squarely up to the Briton 10-�laj-, and Promoter McCarey is awaiting s. cablegram from Freddie "Welsh announcing the result. Selecting Welsh as his ambassador, JJeCarey cabled the Pontypridd lightweight to ascertain Wells' terms and rush a reply.

G.--Roger Bresnahan, formerly manager of the St. Louis National League baseball team, Will wear a Chicago National Club uniform next season, according- to Charles W. iMurphy, president of the club. "He is a great acquisition," said Mr. [Murphy, tonight. "I won't say what salary' Bresnahan is going to get, but J had io outbid Dreyfus, of Pittsburg, tfdr him, and that shows what others think of Bresnahan. I intend to use his as a catcher with Archer." Murphy said Roger had not signed yet, but that a three-years' contract will be mailed to Bresnahan's home in Toledo tomorrow. CICOTTE NOT WITH HIS SATISFIED NEW CONTRACT White Sox Player Ha8 Joined "Hold Out" Brigade Detroit, Jan. 6.-Pitcher Eddie Ci-cotee, of the Chicago American League baseball club, said today that he has returned his 1913 contract to President Comiskey unsigned.

(J.-In one of the best hockey games played in the Pass this winter, Cokuiati defeated the Frank players on Saturday night on the Coleman rink, by a score of 9 to 2. Frank came up feeling confident of vin�ory, and the players and crowd of rooters who accompanied them, hinted that thoy had all kinds of money to back up their convictions, but when called, the men with the money were conspicuous by their absence. A crowd of Blairmore hockey enthusiasts, and many of the team of that town, also came up to see the game, and get a line on the Coleman players. In the first period Coleman scored four times, while Frank drew a blank. In the second period Coleman added two more to the tally, and Frank succeeded in shooting the puck through the net for one goal. During the last twenty minutes of play Coleman shot three goals., and Frank one, making the score 9-2 in favor,of Coleman. The line-up was: . Frank-Scott, Gray, Merrick, Dun-lop, McGowau, iMerrice and McKay. Coleman - Higgins, Easton, Williams, Gresack, Graham, Hogan and Hatfield. . Referee-Benson, of Blairmore. The following is the schedule of games to be played in the Crow's Nest Pass Hockey League: Jan. 8.-Frank at, Blairmore; Cole-1 man at Frank. Jan.10.-Frank at Blairmore. Jan. 15.-Blairmore at Coleman.

JOE RIVERS EXPECTS TO WIN Mexican Getting in Shape'for Bout With Leach Cross ? St. Louis, Jan. 6.-The claim of Roger Bresnahan, former manager of the St. Louis National League team, against Mrs. Helen" Britton, th� owner, was compromised today. It is reported that Bresnahan was p�id, 120,000 for cancellation of whatever claim he may have had against Mrs.-- Britton for alleged- violation of the contract nnder which he was to manage the club for five years. > ? ? > > ? �� New Yoi'k, Jan. S.-"Do you expect to do much to the Cross family?" was asked Joe Rivers, the Mexican "hot tamale," as he was getting under way for Rye, N. Y., where he has started in training for his bout with Leach Cross. "Yes, double-cross them," Rivers responded, his face wreathed in a western smile. "I have heard a whole lot about this man, Cross," he added, "but I hope to win." Joe has made a very favorable impression on the Broadway sports, but he has woefully disappointed the Broadway newsies. They expected to see a senor, wlith a sombrero on his head, a mantilla over his shoulder, a knife in his belt, snurrinos on his h-eele and a cigarette flirting between lip and eyelashes. Si, senor! That's the way they figured the Mexican fighter would look. But Joe does not look that way at all. BOYS' BOWLING TOURNEY McKain, Winner with a Good Average for Youngster The boys department of the Y. M. C. A. have concluded a very successful bowling tournament. G. McKain was the highest pin scatterer with an average of 14S for six games. H. Schweitzer was second with an average of 132 to his credit and Percy Irwin better than 125 for six games. CANADA HOME OF CHAMPION PACERS Los Angeles, Cal, Jan. U.-Fairly dazed nro the ftstie fans over tho remarkable victory of the new champion, -Luther McCarty. Another Jim Corbett, only greater, is what many of the wise ones are calling.'McCarty. The champion is not yet of age, but he is of moro sturdy build and probably possesses more strength than did Corbett at his best. Right now it would be ridiculous to say he is as clover as Corbett, or as crafty a ring gvaeral, but that ho will develop is almost certain. McCarty is the cleverest big fellow tcday, and that he knows the rudiments of the game is plainly evidence when he shapes off in the ring. He knows how to hit and direct his punches, and will improve with experience. Rise Due to Manager j To McCarty's manager, shrewd Billy i McCarney, we must attribute his re-; markable rise to the top. Immediately ' after the Flynu victory McCarty was censured for taking tho Palzer match so quickly. Billy knew the ability of his man aud unhesitatingly closed the. match. Had McCarney passed up the | Palzer bout he might not have had tho opportunity later, and in the meantime Luther might have encountered a tough one. Within one year McCarney has brought his protege from obscurity to the championship. It was in December of 1911 that McCarney found Luther in Chicago bogging for a chance. Billy took charge of his affairs and took J^m to Springfield. Mo., where he defeated Joe Cox. McCarney and McCarty have been inseparable ever since. The hoodoo number 13 has played a part in McCarney's career. The Palzer bout was McCarty's 13th fight and his first mill in 1913. There are 13 letters in McCarty's name and the same number in McCarnay's.. McCarty to Buy Property Both fighter and m^najjer looked over some property a: Venice iucently. McCarty is impressed with the Beach resort and intends to build a home there. McCarney will go east to look over the ground and decide which of services he will accept. One offer of J the numerous offers for his fighter's ?2,500 for a week at a New York theatre and another of 51,000 a week for 10 weeks in vaudeville have been received by McCarty. The new champion will remain'here for at least days. imisir.v 7. l�>i:$ Smokeless Shotshells "leader" and "Repeater" The merits and weaknesses of shotshells are soon shown in trap shooting. Both amateur and professional season's averages were won Winchester Loaded Shells- in 1911 with "Leader" and repeater."

Two close matches were played, and two others completed the number which went in favor of the president's men by rather long odds. There will be a second series of matches tonight in this competition. Last night's scores were as follows: President's Vice-President's N .T. Mocleod, 14 D. McNab, 7 R. R.

CENTRAL SCHOOL LEADS Indoor Baseball League teams at "Y" of School LANGFORD COMING HOME VERY SOON 10 During the season of 1912 the pacing races of the Grand Circuit and the other big meetings which bring together the best harness horses in America were completely dominated by the Canadian horses, Joe Patchen II., Knight Onwardo and Grand Opera. Patchen was the greatest money winner of the season, and the only race he lost all year was won by Knight Onward. Last week a new star was added to the Canadian galaxy when Royal Grattan got his public trial in the 2.30 pace at the Toronto Driving Club's meeting. This green horse, recently bought by Mr. J. E. Gray of Toronto, from Mr. Chas. Barrett of Park Hill, Out. demonstrated his speed and his racing ability. It was-agreed by the experts that Royal Grattan can- go as fast as a horse is wanted, and Mr. Ed. Baker was quite justified in offering to name a purchaser if Mr. Gray would take $10,000 for him, an offer that his owner declined. MACLEOD BOWLERS AFTER A MATCH Macleod intends to keep up a dust in the bowling realm this winter. Matches are being arranged bv the experts there with teams from the neighboring places. R. A.
