Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Pace 6 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD LOCAL TEAM IMPED Trimmed to a Finish in Hockey Encounter at Calgary Last Night Prominent in Eastern Hockey | *- -* ' A rather bum aggregation of hockey players it was who represented Lethibridge in Calgary last. night against the Shermans. The jteara was not representative of this city's best hockey materipJ, and even if it was this team had its nerve going up against a bunch of well-seasoned players- the plck.of Calgary-without practice in team play, and it was a Bcratch squad at that. The best that Lethbridge could possibly round up with weeks of practice .together, wouldn't be good enough to hold its own with Bill Sherman's brigade probably, Lethbridge in hockey was made a laughing stock at Calgary last night. ' Ti LEAGUE TO MEET Magnates to Gather at Edmonton Today-What Calgary Has to Say '(Special to the Herald). Calgary, Alta., Jan. 14.-The Calgary, Shermans trimmed the Lethbridge team' here last night to the tune of fourteen to one. It was scarcely half a minute after the blowing of the starting whistle: that Alex. McHugh netted the dis; i for the first score. Bishop got the j disc,.but it was taken away from him by Taylor. The visitors made an attack, but the scsne was reversed when the Calgary forwards got their combination working. McHugh got the puck on the rebound from, the boards and the rest was easy. Sex-smith netted again within another half minute. Then immediately after the third face-off Sexsmith pessed to McHugh, who shot the puck through a crowd at the goal mouth with score number three. Sexsmith broke into the calcium a minute later with a pretty angular shot. The scoring -was so rapid that the scribes could scarcely1 keep count. Terry McGovern got the puck and made a brilliant individual run, shot against the ^oal tender's pads and McHugh followed up and scored number fire. SOME FISTICUFFS The scoring was getting monotonous, so Terry McGovern and one of the Lethbridge team livened up matters with a one-round encounter. They were torn apart by the judge of play but the game continued. The spectators' interest in this affair was interrupted by Sexsmith, who scored number six, number seven came half a minute later, also scored hv Sexsmith. Alex. McHugh was guilty for number eight and also for number nine and Denny Manners for number ten. The game had only been in progress fifteen minutes and ten goals had been scored. ' .The game, or rather the scoring, was 'delayed for a' few minutes by the locals, who played with their opponents, begging them to score, but there was nothing doing. Archie Bishop, then netted the eleventh goal of the evening. Lethbridge finally broke Into the score column, McGillis, getting a rebound from the boards and shutting his eyes, banged the puck between the flags, the score at half time was 11 to 1. ' ' SECOND" HALF Alex McHugh scored the twelfth goal for the local team within a minute of the start of the second spasm. Archie Bishop came down within a minute of the start of the second 'Archie Bishop came down within a minute after the twelfth goal, corkscrewed through the helpless defence of the visitors, then passed to McHugh, who netted the hoodoo tartly. Terry McGovern pleaded guilty for number fourteen. That was about all there was to the game worth mentioning. . The teams lined up as follows : Shermans Goal FRANK HEFFERNAN The former Ottawa College athlete who Is starring for the Toronto A. A. .Hockey club this winter.

President Dewar called the meeting last week, but whether there will be much accomplished at the meeting is another matte1-. Sam Savage will represent Calgary at the meeting. An invitation has been extended to all the eastern cities, viz., Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw, Brandon, and Win nipeg, to send representatives to the meeting, and talk over a league for next year, but it is doubtful if anyone from these places will attend. "We must have a league next year," said Sam Savage last night, "that will be much different from this year's We must get some of these eastern cities interested, and form either.a six or eight team league, with rivalry between western cities much greater than can exist in a league composed of all Alberta, towns. There will be about $200 left in the treasury, and I think it "would be a good plan to use this money in paying the expenses of someone to visit these eastern cities and endeavor to interest them in a good league. If the eastern cities send delegates to the meeting on Tuesday at Edmonton, this will be unnecessary, but I think it will require a little talking up.before interest is again awakened in the cities we need." Mr. Savage went on to state that the the local club lost greatly last year, but he is going to stick with the ship. Fernie Better on Combination Play Than Their Heavier Opponents (Special to The Herald) Fernie, B.C., Jan. 13.-In the first of the Crow's Nest Pass League games to be played here, Blairmore's septette went down to defeat in a game of fairly good hockey with the Fernie aggregation in the Fernie ring tonight. Three twenty-minute periods were played. At the end of the first period the score stood, 2-2. At the opening of the second period tl'* Fernie boys began to get a more satisfactory combination, and the score immediately went to 4-2. Sur-ette, of Blairmore, refused to leave the ice when penalized by Referee James Miller, for tripping, and a delay of fifteen minutes annoyed the audience. A truce was finally patched up, and play was resumed with Beuson, of Blairmore, who had been judge of play, as referee. In the next few Fernie scored five goals and Blairmore one, the second period ending 9-3. In the third period play was not very snappy, Fernie scoring fouT times and Blairmore once. Although the Blairmore boys were heavier than the Fernie team, the superior combination of the .latter won the game. The_Fernie line-up was: Goal, Cadden; point, Walace; cover, Milne; centre, McQuinn; rove* Thrasher; left wing, Dunlop; right wing, Durland. The Blairmore team wCjS: Goal, Ford; point, Lewis; cover, Rourke; rover, Turner; centre, Sur-ette; left wing, Godard; right wing, Paul.

ONCE FAMOUS JOCKEY Arrested for Stealing-Made Pile of Money in His Prime PASSING -UP LETHBRIDGE Lethbridge as a factor in Western Canada league baseball for 1913 has as yet not received any recognition. The league holds a meeting today in Edmonton.' Whether this'city will'be included in any of the schemes for a new league that is being contemplated is a matter of conjecture. Lethbridge may have to 'map out its own destinies in professional baseball, but even yet the gentlemen who will be in session tonight at the capital may find it necessary to make gentle overtures to Lethbridge "to join them in the game before long. New York, Jan. 13.-Grover Cleveland Fuller, a jockey^ who made $300,-000 for James Keene and $75,000 for himself in one season ten years ago, pleaded guilty today to having stolen a pocket book containing a few pennies from an acquaintance in an uptown saloon.

HE SHOT TEN' GOALS IN GAME OF SOCCER New York Devotees of tire Game Marvel at the Work of Ralph Siate Revolver and Pistol Cartridges Some people take a lot of care in selecting a revolver or pistol, and then buy anv cartridges whatever. No wonder they don't always get good results. There is just as much difference in cartridges as in firearms. Always get Winchester make of cartridges and you will have cartridges that are reliable and uniform in shooting and give maximum velocity. They cost no more than inferior makes. LOOK FOR Tim RED W ON THE BOX. New York, Jan. 13.-Association football interests are discussing American record in soccer, established by Ralph Slate, of the Albion Club, at Jersey City recently, when he shot ten goals in a single game. The contest was a Metropolitan league championship fixture, in which the'Hibernians, of Jersey City, lost to the Al-bions, by a score of 14.'to'0. During the^first half Slate found the Hibernians' net four times. Time after time, he corralled the ball in mid-field, and each time he rushed the entire length of the field for a score. The six goals he placed in the.second half were equally spectacular. finally decided that he will meet Zbyszko, the last week in April, provided the giant Pole in the meantime disposes of all the other big fellows who have been howling for a chance at Gotch Dver''since the latter sought seclusion. If the championship bout between Gotch arnd Zbyszko materializes, 'it is likely to be held in this city. A syndicate of local sporting men has mad i all arrangements for a purse of $30,000 for the battle. If the contest is held here it will probably be staged in the open, if possible, on Memorial Day.

NELSON AND SUNDAY Wayward Team of City Hockey League Handed a Jolt NEW HOCKEY LEAGUE Winnipeg and Kenora Teams Compose It-Played Startling Game Winnipeg, Jan. 13.-The Independence Hockey league, the new senior organization of Winnipeg, wtiioh includes two Winnipeg and one Kenora team, sprung a real surprise on the two thousand fans, 'who watched the opening game here tonight. The Kenora and Strathconas were the opponents, and they put up the fastest exhibition of hockey that has been played here this winter, in which the local boys were returned the winners by the close margin of 8 to 7. Setting a fast clip at the start, the players never let up until the finish, and the excitement was intense throughout. With ten minutes to play the Kenora boys came from behind, and notched three goals, making the score 8 to 7 against them, and'the game was marked by 4he greatest excitement The Sporting Goods have (been fined $5.00 by the City league for deliberately defaulting their game with the Aquatics on January 10. They preferred to go. to Taber, and play instead of fulfilling their obligation to the City leargue. It is believed that the Sporting Goods are not anxious to continue in the league, and if they fail to turn out against the Y. M, C. A. tonight they will be automaticaliy drppped, and the Rovers, a/ new aggregation, will take their place. The behaviour of the Sporting Goods has been roundly condemned on all sides and unless they can show some substantial reason for their actions, the club will in future be tabooed in local sporting ciTCles. A good deal of time and money has been expended in boosting hookey here this winter, and the least the clubs, can do to help the game along is to flsht shy of unnecessary trouhle:. the elements will give quite enough, without borrowing more.
