Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHB RIDGE I) A T L \ HERALD 1MJR STOOD OF WARNER IN FAST AND FURIOUS BOUT Texas Wrestling Marvel Failed to Throw Taylor Twice in Hour and Lost-Warner Secured One Fall Ear'y in Match but Couldn't Repeat-Taylor on Defensive (Special to The Herald) Modlcine Hat, Alta., Jan. 8.-Warn-�; the Texan light heavyweight grap-�plisr, failed to make good his hot in his wrestling match with Jack Taylor, of Lethbridge, in the Opera House tonight, which was that he would throw the'ex-cop iwice in one hour. The best that he could do was to put Taylor's shoulders to the mat once in the allotted time. Warner is a clever mau, and he had Taylor in some very tight holds on many occasions, some of which only required very little to give the Texan his coveted victory; hut Taylor prov-v.& as elusive as the proverbial eel. He wriggkd and squirmed out of tight Traces time and again. Just when It seemed as if al! was over but the shouting, Taylor would, with a mighty effort, break his opponent's hold, or else slip out of His grasp. WarntT secured his only fall in ten minutes with an arm-scissors and toe hold. For the first part of the match, Warner played for the toes and neck, hut in the latter part ho used the arm and head hold. Taylor did not take a hold of his man at all, but he played the defensive all the way through. Warner, in the latter part of the match seemed to lose his temper, and he went at Taylor with a vengeance, rushing him aTound the mat And hurling him around. However, this did not get him anything, as he only winded himself, and his science and skill were not as effective. Taylor was calm throughout the whole bout, sprawling around the mat with Warner at him every minute. At one time Warner started to use the finger hold, but desisted in favor of the a-rm and toe holds, and flopped his huskier opponent about a great deal. Jack Rogers refereed. At the close Taylor announced that in a short time he would hs prepared to meet. Warner in a straight match. Last night's victory for Taylor gives each man a win over the other, and .he next .30,. which will decide which is the better man, should prove u great drawing card.

LACROSSE IN ALBERTA The time to promote and enliven a sport that has become, dormant is about six months ahead of its playing season to ensure ieturns for time and labor invested. The Edmonton Capital sees the logic of this pertaining to lacrosse. A recent issue contained the following apropos the Canadian national game in Alberta: Professional Lacrssae for Alberta While the lacrosse season is still some months away it is not by any means too early for the enthusiasts of tne great Canadian game to begin their work for the coming season. The game has a firm hold of the athletic loving public of the city and this year if the interest holds there should be some good lacrosse seen in northern and central Alberta. From Montreal there comes a story to the effect that on the quiet an effort is being made to secure thp services of a number of the crack pros of the east for Calgary and Edmonton if these two cities are al-. lowed to enter the British Columbia league. An Edmonton man has signified his willingness to back the proposition ?1000 worth and while that is but a drop in the bucket, it is also the forerunner of good tidings and awakened interest. .High River,, Taber and Medicine Hat would enter a lacrosse league should one be organized and it is up to the Edmonton enthusiasts to' put their bands to the plow and turn riot back. The game is one of the best from a spectators' point of view ever played on sod and always attracts a crowd. .;. > >> Baseball Manager's Salary for Three Year's Service The salary being paid Frank Chance by the New York American league club to take the managerial reins for the next three years is stupendous, and is an excellent tribute to his peerless ability. Chance is to receive $75,-000 straight for his three seasons' work at the Highlanders' helm, besides an interest in the club's earnings, which is estimated will make the position worth $12,000 for the term. It is the highest salary ever paid to a baseball league manager.. Chance, in turn, will be expected to give New York a pennant-contending team in the American league. He will be given a free hand and plenty of money to build it up. The Highlanders' last year for the greater part of the season was the tail-end club of the league. Chance has his work cut out. When Charles Murphy, president of the Chicago Cubs handed Chance his release, he did the game inestimable good unintentionally. The agreement between the New York magnates^ and Chance was "di*awns up yesterday at Chicago; '' -v ' '� " ''.

They kept the Ottawa forwards shooting at long range, and of the numerous shots which Nicholson handled few were difficult to deal with. Lake and Shore were brilliant until they encountered the Tecumseh defence, and there they stopped. Ronan and Darragh had the same difficulty. Broadbent was unable to shine, and Denuison and Westwick were frequently used. Benedict subbed for Leseur in the last five minutes, but had-little to do. Throop was the most brilliant man on the ice. He back-checked with great determination, and rammed his way through-the Ottawa defence when ever he felt like doing so. He got three ot the Tecumseh's foin- goals and lined a dozen shots dead on the goal. His final goal of the game was a beautiful effort from the left hoards. Thu puck landed like a rifle shot in the top of the net, and completely fooled Leseur. Vair, not yet in condition, also performed with great credit. Harry Smith was' outr.kated throughout, but put in some of his good shooting. Cor-bean dropped bnck on, with the McNamara brothers in the final period, and the Indians played safe. At the same time the Ottawas threw Shore on an attack, and in the final ter^ minutes a fierce onslaught was made on Nicholson's nets, but without avail.

BIG jCROWD SAW LEAGUE LEADERS WIN BY ONE Montreal, Jan. 8. - The onward march of the Canadiens, the leaders of the National Wuckey league, was kept up last night when they defeated the \Wanderers by a score of 4 to A, before nearly 5000 people at the arena. This was the first meeting of the two local clubs and t'.rre was considerable speculations as to the result of it. The winners lined up with their regular team, while the Wanderers were without the services of Gordie Roberts, who is confined to his bed ns the result of the accident at Toronto last week. . Tho match was one of the closest of tbe season and the result was in I doubt, and in fact it was the sound-, jng of the gong Tor ihs expiration of j time that prevented the score being tied as .Spraguc Cleghorn had work-| cd through the Canadiens' defense and shot just as time was called, ih�| belt beating the puck to the net. The play was mad'ed by dazzling end to j end rushes on the part of players of both teams, the defense of uach being kept busy in turn. The stopping and clearing of Vezina and Boyes was the cleverest exhibition of goal keeping that has be3ii seen here this season and was responsible for keeping, the score down. Rough pla�y was conspicuous bv its absence which is best shown by the penalties, the officials with one exception, imposing nothing but minors. Dubeau mixed it with Hyland and was given a major line for cross checking. Canadiens Wanderers Goal Vezina ....................,..........Boyes Point Dubeau.......................................

Following the opening, the market was comparatively dul, but firm, and prices further advanced Vr, to 1t, with March leading. Speculative offers were light, and there was a good demand for both Australian and Cunadinn wheat and marts covered. Expectations are for Ui'-re Argentine shipments this week, and the "teadier feeling In political circles served' to check the advance. At 1.30 p.m. thd market was firm, \i to % higher than yesterday. Corn opened unchanged and later advanced % to i/i, with offers light. The strength in Buenos Ayrea at the close, lighter Plate offerings and the firmness in American offers caused shorts to cover.

A., and sporting editor of the Toronto Star, writes regarding the Wau-derer-Canailien j^mie: "Six-man hockey Is like baseball without the short-stop-t-a, big hole in the lino without rhyme or reason." "Hockey on an ice the sine of the. Toronto arena requires at least seven men to a side for the best exposition of tiie line points of tho name. "Tho prettiest thing about- hockey is the combination team attack, the pasBing and re-passing and the b$ck checking which are apparently 'impossible under the six-man rule. / "The exhibition by tho professionals was a succession of one-man rusih-es (some ot: them brilliant) wllfh a little 'or no attempt at combined play. Had there been five men a sidft, or even four men a side it would pavo been just as sensible with even tnore openings for individual rushes. ) "Baseball could be played withj' eight men a side, or seven or six, )but it wouldn't be baseball, The saJtae argument applies to lacrosse anjd football as well as hockey, j "The pros, will �lay the ertnascul ated game for the first half oi| the N.
