Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 11, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALP Saturday, January 11,1013 Cincinnati Manager Lands the Veteran Pitcher in Trade With the Colonels BUCHANAN'S RED SEAL 99 Chicago, Jan. 10.-Mordecai Brown Isn't through with the major league ;.pt Joe Tinker, newly appointed manager of the Cincinnati Reds thinks the lion hearted twirler, formerly with ths Cubs, is still carvicenble, for laBt night the news cnme from Red ville that Tinker had trader Grover Laudermilk to the Louisville club for Brownie. Laudermilk was one ot the Cubs T/hp went to Cincinnati along with Tinker in the big trade that landed the managerial job for Joe. It was said at the time that Tinker was willing to-accept the tall Cub pitcher because he knew T-oulsville wanted him and niighi trade Browrie for him. -Wore than a week ago Tinker conversed with Brownie here and declared at that time he was going to ^ct him for the Reds if a deal could be made. New the trade has been made and i'.ll that remains is for the Cincinnati club to procure Brown's signature to si contract. If the terms are all right, Brownie will be pitching against the Cuba nest year, instead of for them. | Released During City Series While Brownie belonged to the I.otlisvil!e club he bad not played there, for he was not released from the Cubs until after the regular playing season had closed. President Murphy secured waivers from every National league club on the three lingered pitcher and much to the surprise of every one, announced during the city series that Brown had been released to Louisville. Cincinnati must have waved claim on Brown at that time, but as scon as Tinker obtained the job as leader of the Reds, he (began dealing to get Brown. At the present time Mordecai is livi'ng in Chicago and acting as tutor of baseball curves to Fowler McCor-mick, the grandson of John D. Rockefeller. Whether he pitches next season fcr the Reds depends entirely on Wliat terms are offered, and it seems that Tinker must have known that sufficient inducements could be made or he would not have turned the trade. Last spring Brown refused to sign the flvst contract offered him by Pre-btucfit Murphy of the Cubs, and not until after the team had left for the training camp did the famed twirler oome to terms with the Cub boss. Brown never had received a fat salary during- the years when he was largely j'esponsible for the Cubs' success, and determined a year ago that he would | either get a big salary or quit the game. -  Brown obtained the big salary, said to be $7500, and signed a contract for' three years at that figure with verbal assurance from Murphy, so he said, that he would get the money for three years, even if he never pitched � game. , Brown was permitted to take bis own time in getting into condition last spring and didn't round into form until about June 1- Then he seemed �to have regained all his former "stuff"' and pitched a couple of shut? out games, one against St. Louis and One against Cincinnati. In the latter ho> injured his right laiee sliding into second base and didn't recover sufficiently to pitch another game all sea-�on, His arm seemed as strong as ever-, hut until his injured knee got well he was unable to stride properly. �He took treatment continually and in the fall thought the knee was :-.ooul ail right again and surely would �be all right by next spring, but while engaged in helping as much as possible to beat the White Sox in the fall series, he was informed by President Murphy that he hod been sold to Louisville. Of course that meant that the fat salary would be cut, in half at least end Brown declared he would not play at Louisville unless a big salary coujd be paiid. Consequently he was undecided what to do next year and in the midst of thjs uncertainty the oiler came to act as tutor to young E'c.vUr McCormick. Since then Brown has announced that the work of tutor, ing lis so pleasant and so remunerativethat be would like to have a class oj.aspiring school boys with college ambitions.

Sullivan lost his title as the world's premier fighting man to Jim Cor-bett, he 'was saved from defeat and disaster only by his indomitable nerve and his ability to browbeat his opponents until the blood turned to water in their veins. Twenty-six years ago tonight the Old Soman faced^Patsy Cardiff, in Minneapolis, in what was scheduled to be a six-round bout. Cardiff was a great fighter, a finished boxer, a champion save only for his lack of courage and sameness. That night in the Minnesota metropolis, he had the heavyweight championship of the world in his hands, but the beetling stare from the fierce eyes of the greatest of gladiators frightened him, and his fingers relaxed the clutch on the victory that was within his grasp. Early in the battle, Sullivan broke the radius of his left arm. The injury caused excruciating pain, but the Old Roman made no sign. His lips were a little more compressed than usual, his glare more terrible, and the, injured arm hung useless at his side. He f :ught on with his one good arm, and Cardiff thought John L. was but manifesting contempt, or that the left was but reserved for some terrible wallop when an opening came. Thrctigh the six rounds Cardiff showed greater fear of the "bum" left than of the good right. With more courage and aggressjveness he must soon have discovered John L.'s plight, and made short work of the champion of champions. Fear held him back, and the opportunity was lost.

GIVE LETHBRIDGE WIDE PUBLICITY Allan Jack received a communication from Geo. T. Haag this morning to the effect that ho was pleased to know that the Lethbridge fair association hab only a kid, and it may be the licking will prove a blessing in disguise. A reverse at his age should not do him any harm. Anyway it will reduce tho bump of conceit that had assumed abnormal proportions since his 'wins' over Kaufman and Wells. There "never was a fighter of ac" count who didn't carry a fair stock of conceit, and without it his case is hopeless. But an over-supply of self-esteem is not good for the young. Palzer now knows that the only way he can hope to recover lost ground is, by dint of hard work. If I know Tom O'Rourke, the youngster will get plenty of it from now on. I presume McCarty will be billed throughout his theatrical tour as the "hea%yweight champion." But-there is much for Luther to accomplish, be^ fore he can justly lay claim to that title. While Manager Billy McCar-ney announces that he will pay no attention to the claims of Lahgford, Jeannette & Co., a fair-minded sporting public may have something to say about that. ' True, Luther cannot be* rompelled to box any man he does not wish to, t>ut it would seem that his claims to the championship are a trifle premature while either of these men emain undefeated. Luther is not any too secure on the "white heavyweight" throne either. He first has an account to settle with "long" Jess Willard who is the next logical opponent for the Nebraska hoy. Willard has better claims to recognition than any other white heavy, if only based on the bout with McCarty at Madison Square Garden last summer. The announcement that Luther is first to meet Bombardier Wells will not make the hit Manager McCarney anticipates. Willard has a better claim, and justly contends that Wells was eliminated from the race by Palzer. Of all the challengers it looks to me as if Willard is next in line for a meeting with McCarty. When these boys have met and settled their differences it will be time enough to take up the Johnson-Langford-Jean-nette proposition. It is time enough to cross a bridge when you come to !t, and possibly by that time the solution of the championship proposition may not look so difficult. Prank Klaus, the Pittsburg boxer and a leading man in the great middleweight drama, iB 'back home fcr a short visit. A very short one, Frank says, as he is booked to fl?ht Billy Papke in Paris March rith for the championship of Europe. If successful in that match Klaus will be ready to take on Eddie McGoorty for the world's title. Barring the proverbial lucky poke on the chops the representative from Pittsburg looks . the probable winner over the member from Kewanee. Upon learning that the Ne'w York Boxing Commission has raised tiuj welterweight limit to 14fi lbs., MIke-j Gibbons announced he will stick to that division and Is prepared to defend the title- at 145 poijjjds, -Just who wished the title on the olever MlchaeJ I don't Know, hut he migbt as weJJ have it as anyoue else. You cwi count the good welterweights of the country on the Angers of one hand. In Canada they think pretty well �f Hilliard Lang who recently outpoint" ed Ray Branson, and who held Gib- bons even on two occasions before either was known to fame. The real classy match would bu between Gibbons and_ Packey McFar-land. Don't laugh. At 145 ringsiilo Mike would have a couple pounds the best of the weights, but he would bo facing the cleverest man he ever boxed. It would make a great exhibition, worth going miles to see, and would pack any New York club house at grand opera prices. t * * Speaking of Packey McFarland, that young man has decla.ed himself on the weight question, as per the request of JBllly Nolan, and offers to da 135 pounds four hours before the fight If Willie Ritchie will eonsent to meet him. There is as much chance of Packey getting a match under those conditions while Nolan looks after . the champion as there is of my returning to the ring and challenging McCarty for the "white" heavyweight championship. And from the way I feel right now Luther's honors are safe so far as yours truly is concerned. Ritchie's manager recently announced that Packey would bo favored over other aspirants and intimated there would jbe no necessity of making 135 ringside, at which figures be took good care to point out'how Willie won the title. But I have a picture of him acquiescing to Paekey's suggestion about the, poundage. I am afraid Maq will never get a match out of Ritchie unless- the. champion himself outgrows the division. If the boys could only agree on weight it would make a pretty inatch between the master and his pupil. JAS. J. CORBETT.

Amateur Hockey (By Beck in News Telegram) Now that the hockey season is with usf the story of the United States amateur, hockey championship last year, is rather an interesting one. About this time last year the writer was on the staff of a Syracuse, N. Y, newspaper and was endeavoring, to introduce hockey as one of the winter sports there. A magnificent $100,000 artificial ice rink had just been opened and, after some trouble, we got a hockey team organized. Most of the players were,former intercollegiate stars, but they stood about as much chance against a good Canadian amateur team as a junior would stand with fhe Wanderers or some other crack pro organization. Well, the team wept along with fair success against Rochester, Buffalo and other American sevens, but Rochester had an idea that they had to wallop Syracuse, so a scout was sent around the O. H. A. circuit and a hunch of star players made their home in Ro= Chester. When the team visited Syracuse what they did to us was a shame. Now there is as_ much rivalry between Syracuse and Rochester as there is between New Westminster and Vancouver or Calgary and Edmonton. It "wouldn't do to let Rochester crow so one of our representatives made a trip to the Ontario cities. He trrought back about tt dozen star play ers and we soon had jobs .for them Each and every man had his O, H. A, card of amateur standing. Cleveland A. C, had, in the meantime e'eaned up with Toledo,. Detroit, Duluti . and some ether western sevens and was out for the V, 'S. amateur title: ' TJje n$w Syracuse seven soon snow-ed' to. settle aria for final tryout we got the Kingston jTrontenacs ,to come down, and Jimmy Sutherland' brought his, bunch of fine fellows over. And say, they could play some hockey; When thp handful of fans, saw the Frontenacs and the new Syracuse sev-en in action, they got a taste in a tic mud lhc teams arranged to play it off next night. We had a packed house this time, but the Frontenacs proved better in team play and won. We felt elated and issued a challenge to Cleveland, which was about to invade Boston to play the internationals and Boston A. A., both of which had walloped the New York champions. The Cleveland manager had eeen cur aggregation of collegiate misfits and supposed we had the satno team for he snapped at the game. He even wired a Syracuse hotel 'man to take bets up to ?4000. The hotel man didn't have any trouble getting the money covered. When the Cleveledaml leum struck town and saw our lineup there was. an awful yell, but every man had qualified for residence and had an amateur card and Cleveland had to play. They had figured on saving up Gunter, Mar-chand and some others of their stars for the Boston game, but they took no chances with our new team and sent their strongest seven onto the ice. It was a whale of a game, but tho Syracuses were too fctrong for thv Clevelands and won a close^gamo and, incidentally, the bucket's of the team cleaned up a nice bit of change. Cleveland didn't h:ive much money to bet against Boston. However; they trimmed the two Boston teams and then tried to reason out that Syracuse, he-cause of its imported team, could not claim the U. S. championship. But we did. .  Cleveland ovarlookird the fact that their team wis also an Imported aggregation. Marehand iisea to pluy with the Kingston Frontenacs and was the prize goal tender of the O. H, A. Gunter and some others whose names I forgot, were also former O. H. A-stars, It. nmy interest the fans to know that Eddio McCafferty, former secretary of the Montreal Wanderers, is now manager of the Syracuse arena and he h-'tsn crack seven which includes several of the players who composed the team 'which boat sl�s�-land find won tho chnmplonshiD. 7 ;
