' ABN8T TO QUIT ROWING GAME Ex-Champion Professions;! Sculler, Ri-cer&ly Beaten by Barry, Will Settle in Sydney The iee at the lake has been cleared of snow, and the skaters may make merry to their heart's content tonight. However there is a danger of the ice. flooding. It appears that the snow caused the ice to sink in toward the centre, opening up a large crack at the edge, from which the water has a tendency to ooze out and run in the direction of the dip. In order to prevent the skating being spoiled, Mr. Jack, the superintendent of Civic amusements, has had the snow banked up along the line of the, fissure In the ice, and the water is prevented from spreading over the path of the skaters. If the water breaks through the snow embankment the skating may be spoiled. INTERMEDIATE HOCKEY Aquatics and Sporting Goods Play at the Lake Tonight The Aquatic line-up for the intermediate hockey game tonight with the Sporting Goods is as follows: . Watscn, goal; Matters, point; Horn, c.-polnt; C. ButleT, rover: E. Butler, centre; Crawford, left; McGuire, right. Tho Johnson-Flynn fight pictures were shown at the Morris Theatre this afternoon for the benefit of the press and police. They are reiuark-i able pictures of their kind. The ! films were sho\vn in Calgary and Ed-l monton, and the press reports classed the pictures as far above those ot any that have been taken of any big pugilistic encounter for clearness and detail. The press reports from the north are true. The pictures are decidedly above the average, and there is not a point iu the historic pugilistic 'battle that has been lost by the "movies." All the dramatic incidents are shown in clear relief from the training quarters of both fighters and from the first til! the ninth round.

Jan. 7.-Basketball is just now the prominent topic in the sporting circles of the Bouth country, a league having been formed under the auspices of the Y. M. M. I. A., comprising four teams: Magrath, Stirling, Raymond First Ward and Raynortd Second Ward. Tonight the local five clash with the Second Warders of Raymond and an interesting game is anticipated. Magrath is very fortunate In having a good building in which to play. The Electric Theatre being all that could be desired for basketball. Some fast sport is promised by the promoters, and Coach Bennion Is drilling his team strenuously. The opening game should have been pulled off at Stirling on Friday, Jan. 3rd, but the fierce snow storm prevented the local team from driving over. They started, however, showing that their intentions were right. There are sorao good teams in the Mutual League, not least among them . . , being Stirling, who carried oft' the r tiaimng ilonors |aBt year, trimming Calgary, quarters, half a hundred race horses Tfle U.Q Ilaymond teama are reported famous in Western Canada, matnees, to be stroug The Pim Warders will and all the rest arc on the bill which miss the unparalleled Don Skouson has been worked out by exhi -ition tnis vear, he having lost a hand whl'a authorities.- It is one of the biggest working on a traction engine this has ever undertaken in this direction, and the racing card at the fair next June will be one to attract uwuers all over the west.

The police stopped the fight because Flynn in their opinion was a hopelessly defeated man. Leading ring critics at the fight don't share the opinion of the Mexican police. Many have an idea that Johnson was as much in distress as Flynn, and believe that the bout was stopped under mistaken impression, and because of lack of experience and knowledge. Fight fans were never left in greater perplexity after a bout than after the Jobnson-Flynn go. A sight of the pictures will do a lot to satisfy the fans as to whether the critics' views were prejudiced or not. > *? > i* > .j. .;. �> TOMORROW NIGHT * _-- ^ ? The Sporting Goods and Y. ? ? M.

O.lf-i WEDNESDAY'S GRAIN MARKETS And Scouts the Idea of Breaking Record of Successive Championships Tbe National League reaches far back into history, but in all that time only five managers have succeeded in annexing three pennants in a row. Johnny McGraw has an excellent chance of shoving this number up to six next season, for he has a veteran, fast, intelligent baseball team, and he will infuse it with his own dash and spirit. And he wants to join that highest honor class, what's more. "Now, you know I don't talk a whole lot about this sentiment stuff," the "Little Corporal" said the other day, "but, do you know. I'd work my fingers off to the bone if I could class with 'Baby' Anson, Frank Selee, Fred Clarka, Ned Hanlon and Frank Chance in this pennant winning stuff. I've been looking up the dope, and I find there is just one more step between me and the last honor of all. , "You know, when you start into this baseball thing you And it's a deep game, much deeper than the majority of folks think. There's many a slip, too, between spring and fall. You may start out the way we did last year, run away from the whole bunch and . look to have it cinched,' and then some-to f thing goes wrong and you begin to slip. Gee, many a night last August I thought the Cubs would pass us. "But I'm just stuck on copping my third straight, pennant with the New I have a great team- great pitchers, great catchers, great fielders and great runners. I think I've got a chance to do it." That's a fact, too, only five men since 1876, when the National League was toddling along in its best bib and tucker, ' have landed three pennants in a row.

VDN COMPETITION SPORTING GOODS TAKE UP CALGARY DEFI Bill Sherman, of Calgary, is bringing outside teams to the Al'crta rnetropols to compete with a hockey septette hearing his name and he has been in touch with Physical Instruc- j bringing immortal fame to their mar- The president's rinks wove again proven masters of the vice-president's retinue in the second and final matches of tho president versus vice-president competition at the curling rink last night. Monday night the president's rinks won by a goodly, margin in total number of points, and last night the victors did even better against their rivals. The match-fit glimpsed the greatest honor of all, es resulted as follows : hanging up their third successive gonfalon In their own front yard arid calling on all folks to see it. More than 10 years passed before another club managed to equal this glorious achievement. Frank G. Selee, one of the greatest baseball brains ever connected with the national. pastime, came through with his Boston club in 1891. 1892 and 1893, tying Anson for the honor. Ned Hanlon's great: Baltimore teams of '94, .'95 and '96 were next to march along with the three-play glory. Mugsy McGraw played in those teams, too, and knows how it feels to be on a three-winner managed by somebody elfee. No wonder he's envious and wants tho honor himself. In 1901. '02 and '03 Fred Clarke led his Pittsburg Buccaneers to a three-time pennant victory, dropping the world's championship the last year to Jimmy Collins' famous Boston Americans. Frank Chance is the last of the three-ply victors. In 1906, '07 and,'08 his Chicago Cubs battled their way to the line ahead of all the others, thus President W. L.

Chattering Charlie Murphy can't see this last statement, but it's true nevertheless. McGraw had a chance once before to seize the greatest ^jonor of all.

Jan. 7.-Charles (Duke) Farrell, the veteran catcher of the Boston Nationals and the Boston American baseball clubs, wva signed by the Red Sox today for the coming season.

Perhaps that's why he is so intent on copping iu 1013'. In the American League Hughey Jennings stands alone with a three-time victory, his Tigers chewing their way to the top in 1907, '08 and '09. Thus it may be easily seen that Johnny McGraw can be understood when he seeks to join this exclusive class of triple winners". Ho has a good chance, too.

TOM McCAREY OBJECTS TO NEW WEIGHTS Los Angeles Promoter Says the Limits Will Not be Observed Out of New York State Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 7.-That the New York boxing commission is not capable of drawing up a set of weights was the opinion put forth by Tom McCarey, fight, promoter at Vernon, who has had years of experience. Hp figures that the weights set by the New Yo-rkers will not hold good outside New York State. McCarey also  said that Cofforth, of. San Francisco, and himself, had been invited to participate In the setting of weights, but that he had refused to be a party to the changes. "Why should the featherweight limit be raised from 122 to 125 .pounds?" argued Mc-Carely. "That would do Johnny Kilbane out of his title. It would not be fair to him. It is said N that the new set of weights would do away with the arguing over poundage,. The only weight over which there has been any kicking is the lightweight. Putting that up to 135 pounds would not change matters. The same bickering- would come tip as before. "In the past ten years there has been only one trouble about weight. That was about nine years ago, when Terry McGovern and Young Corbett fought at 128 pounds for the bantam title. No matter who s.ets certaiu weights, the champion will always dictate terms. I believe thftt the weights -as they now are recognized in this country should stand. The big argument put forward by advocates of the hew measure is that they will correspond to those of: the National Sporting Club of London and the clubs of France. Let 'them come uround to America's way of thinking." 22?875 ;
