This was accounted for by the visitors having had some practice, while the Macleod rinks had not even met as a rink before, but the good playing of the visitors evidently did the wore, tin Thursdav monrns; thev nri. again for the district medal, when the visitors again were the winners of the medal. By one pom I they carried the day, and with it went the district cup, also the. district medal. Th:>se were ud to he won and the best players took them. The Lethbridge curlers included Messrs.

PIECE OF ICE City Hockey TeamjSays Ice is In Bad Shape and Lighting Is Poor The Sporting Go^ods say there will �be nothing doing in hockey at the lake tonight, as far as they are concerned, if the ice is not in better condition than it has been. While the skating rink sheet is all .right, the hockey sheet is too rough to play on to ensure any semblance of real hockey, and it is dangerous, too. The lighting himself," Abe explained, "so I went to also is inefficient and something will the dressing room afterward and saw him. 'Who's your manager?' I asked. "'Haven't any manager,' said he. 'Would you like to have me manage you?' He would sure. He weighs 125, and he's been fighting lightweights and welters. So I took the boy and I'm going to teach m a lot and make him a topnotcli, �*.

No, never again." have to be done in this respect; the players are in danger of having their, eyes knocked out qrWetr blocks torn off by the puck. � . FIGHT PICTURES N. H, A. TEAM AFTER MARITIME PLAYER .Sydney, N.S, Jan. S.-Harry Scott, the hockey player; awarded to the Crescents by the M. P, H. A., today told the W. A.. P. correspondent that he had received a tempting offer from a N. H. A. team for his services, and would possibly leavfi for the upper provinces after, 'tomorrow's. gain densan A! Tlerneyj. tji;Chicago, official stakeholder; :S}m'ith,' -riii eree; Jack Curley,t-promoter: of the bout, and Boh McDpnald, president of the Bdmonton Athletic Club. Oren V. Woody- will lecture on thr-.pictures today, '..,- It is a trlhute to tha ability of Chance as a baseball leader to have bpjjjt /Tinker and Elvers admit that it would be impossible for them to play on; the same team unless Chance was sitting on the bench. Ill feeling between the pair never cropped out to the detriment of the Chicago team while Chance was in charge. He 'was able to handle the two play-era ..to the best interests (of the team, and just as soon as he was let"out arrangements had to be made to separate them. Chicago would never have thought of parting with Tinker, ouo of the greatest shortstops in the game, had it not been for the fact that there was no chance for him and Evers to works smoothly together. So long as Chance was handling the. Cub r�ins it made no difference in the playing of either. San Francisco, Jan. S.-Ice skating, figure and fancy, and hockey games Will be one of the features at. the World's fair, which is to bo held in Golden Gate park in 1910. Word received here from Montreal states that several largo Canadian hockey pro-rnoters intend to build a 250,000 arena here to be used while the fair Is in progress. It is the intention of the promoters to bring the best hockey talent in the Dominion of Canada here to play games. The work on the big artificial .rink will bo started in 1914 in plenty of time to have everything in re/idinoss for the opening of the fair in February. �me men who are back of the project aro the Patrick brothers, who aro booming the Pacific Const Hockey association of Canada. Frank Bulk, director of concessions and amusements of tihe fair, has already advised Frank Patrick that the fair authorities favor the plan. It is Patrick's plan to build a handsome rink in the fair groundB, to open toward the end at February, 1915, at the conclusion of the hockey season in British Columbia, when he will transfer the teams in tha Pacific, coast league here and play exhibition gamBS during the world's fair. A site 200 feet by 450 feet has been set aside for Patrick, which will give htni ample; room to construct au ice palace similar to Montreal's and Quebec's annual ice palaces, in addition to the rink. The Ice Palace > The ice palace is to be a big feature of the plans, and the Vancouver promoters think it will prove a wonderful box office magnet. It will be so arranged that the various blocks of ice will bo colored brilliantly and f,llluminated -by electricity, and as the palace will be under cover, there will be.no difficulty in keeping it Intact. Patrick figures In investing about $260,000 in the worltKs fair project and he is confident he will secure ample returns for the investment. The building will bo designed much after tho fashion of the Victoria arena, which seats'about 40,000, but the exterior will be designed with an eye to beauty as well as service. The world's best fancy' and speed skaters will all be given a world's fair rink. The length of the fair, a whole year, will make a varied program necessary and Mr. Patrick' figures to have a multitude of attractions in addition to the best hockeyists in the world. The three teams which comprise the Paplflo coast league will be signed up for a wihole year instead of the brief -northern winter season, and they will ba the headline attraction at the world's fair arena. When the information gets around among the hockeyists of tho Da Mnion Patrick will likely find himself deluged with applications for places on the teams of 1914, 1.ETHBR1DGE MARKETS Elevator Prlcea 1 Northern"'........................
