It was felt that the war time objection to title decisions was not well founded, now that conscription is in effect and there are no shirkers of military duty. C PIM \ i THE B EST PlAN? Umpire Billy Evans Thinks It Is Doubtful Failing More , Often Than Not > ? *> > > New York. - Bat Nelson is still on 803 j earth. Bat is playing small towns with a "wild animal circus." Deponent say-eth not the character of the rest of the wild animals. From a number of country papers Bat has sent we gather new and amazing bits of information about the former lightweight champ. Here are a few choice paragraphs: "Bat is the one big freak of the circus.'' "The Battler was never knocked out." "He reigned (as champion) for over 20" 'Just two days before he opened the circus he foughi Eddie Welsh for the^J championship and ran Welsh around the ring faster than he was ever chased before, and Bat had the champion on the verge of a knockout four different times." "Bat Nelso'i's act is very educational, as he does a lot of exercises that are very good for one's health; also, while doing them he explains the benefit or each one. During his perform-' ance ho shows how,' with just two i minutes', time daily, 4t Is possible to keep the physical condition in shape, and if a person's health isn't worth two minutes' time daily it isn't worth having. The great Dane finishes his performances by boxing three rounds with Lammerson of Los Angeles. Bat i says Lammerson is the best boy he * > * jever came across in his 21 years .before Friends of Bryan Downey, Ohio welterweight, are wondering why he fails to get the support of his home town papers in Columbus, Downey, according to reports,-is the idoi of the Columbus fight fans, but can not get favorable publicity in Columbus. When he fought Ted Lewis, the title holder, a few weeks ago and gave the Englishman all the fight he could handle* for*l2 rounds, Columbus papers, it is asserted, refused to give him credit for the performance. The result is that Downey has pulled up stakes and moved to Chicago. He will make his home there in the future and his affairs will be handled out of Chicago by Tom Jones. With Downey there also migrated to Chicago the entire'Downey family, consisting of "Pa" Downey, who is always in his son's corner for every fight, and a couple of battling brothers who show promise. Although he has forsaken Columbus, however, Downey has not turned his back on the entire Buckeye state and' etxpects to appear in bouts at Akron and other cities . where boxing flourishes.

Cincinnati, O., Jan. 14.-The National baseball commission announced today that pitcher Earl Yingling, who has been carried on the roster of the Washington club of the American league as a voluntarily retired player, has notified the commission that he is desirous of entering the service of the club next season. w In reinstating Yingling the commission says: "As the player's explanation of Jiis failure to report to. the Washington club last year is confirmed by President Miner, who unites in his request, he is.*hereby restored to active standing." j1' Amsterdam, Jan. 12.-The German j newspapers have begun violently to 'quarrel among themselves regarding their respective views of President Wilson's recent address to congress. The Taeglische Rundchau of Berlin, for instance, under the caption "The pied piper of Washington," attacks the comment of the Socialist newspaper Vorwaerts, which it pillories as despicable backbonelessness while the Khenische iVcstfaelische Zeitung, under the head of "Wilson's last hope." turns fiercely on the Berliner Tage-blatt, the Chemnitz Volks Zeitung and others, which it'accuses of having confirmed President Wilson in the belief that Germany some day will "oblige the entente by surrendering the fruits of victory." ^ The greater part of the Berlin newspapers that have reached here, such as the Tageblatt, the Vosslsche Zeit-ung, the Lokal Anzelger, the Tages Zeitung, the Taeglische Rundschau, the Kreuse Zeitung and Vorwaerts, and also the leading provincial news-papers, of the type of the Koelnische Zeitung and the Frankfurter Zextung, printed the president's address fully, the Nord Deutsche Allgemine Zeitung, printed only the fourteen points and the Hamburger Nachrichten did likewise, but added the concluding portion of the speech. The Catholic organ Gerthanla printed a summary of the address with especial attention to the parts affecting the Russian situation, captioning the article "Wilson on Brest-Litovsk," and so far has added only the first four of the fourteen points. Several of the newspapers did*not receive the whole text in time for their Wednesday evening edition, so that their publication of it was split into two parts, one appearing Wednesday evening and the other Thursday morning. These Can Be Laid Down Cheap er in Manitoba and Saskatchewan Flight-Lieut. O. Thamer, son of E. H. Thamer, of Kitchener, has been officially reported interned in Holland, after having1 been forced to make a landing owing to machine trouble. � BIG CATCHER UNDERSTUDIES . WALTERS Speaking of Harry Hannah joining the Yanks next spring as the understudy of Al Walters brings up a peculiar angle of the national game. Walters, formerly of the Western Canada league, is the smallest, and Hannah the largest, catcher in professional baseball - in class AA or higher company - and the largest catcher is going up to the majors as the understudy of the smallest catcher. This also brings up the fact that Hannah was a fixture with the Sacramento club in the coast league when Walter McCredie considered Walters too small for a catcher and turned him loose without permitting him to catch a full game. Ottawa. Jan. 12.-That carbon coal briquettes- can be laid down at many points in the prairie provinces-but more particularly in Manitoba and Saskatchewan--at a lower cost than anthracite is the finding.of the committee on minerals of the commission of conservation just made public. The report which was prepared by W. 3. Dick, mining engineer to the commission, is the result of an investigation made by him into the possibilities of the lignite coal fields of Western Canada as a source of coal supply for domestic purposes, Mr. Dick in his report gives the following estimate of the saving which would result from the use of carbonized briquettes instead of anthracite in certain cities and towns in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and points out incidentally that ihe price of anthracite is certain to increase. Portage La Prairie, nothing to 45 cents; Carberry SO ceDts to $1.30; Brandon 85 cents to $1.10; "Virden 95 cents to $2.30; Moosomin i)5 cents to $2.20; Wolseley $1.45 to $1.70; Regina Sl.Tn to $2.40; Moose Jaw $1.70 to $2 .SO. ) The estimated cost of laying briquettes down at Winnipeg is $10.15 p^r ton, or slightly more than the cost of anthracite. The report recommends the est 'b-lishmetit at either Estevan or Bf? i-fait of a plants with a capacity of oi tons per hour, but it would be oper . .1 up to half its capacity only until pr en. The briquettes could be ma le from coal waste or slack which could be purchased frem the mines at a low figure. "It will be seen,1' says the report, 'that Regina and Moose Jaw could consume the total output from the proposed plant and that, at these points the minimum difference in favor ol the briquettes over United Stafes anthracite coal is $1.70 per ton. In the intervening country districts the saving would be greater. Assuming that, in order to give the consumer some benefit from the manufacture of these brquettes the retail MHing price be $1.70 below the price of anthracite coal, there would still he a profit ol $1.00 per ton, or $30,000 on the thirty thousand tons made, equal to 7 l-'j per cent, on the investment. In addi lion t^ this profit there would be kepi In Canada, annually, some $200,000, or half the total money spent on the plant. There is a possible market for this class of fuel equal to at least nine times the capacity of the proposed plant." * # �g> : .> > �j. RAILWAY EARNINGS ?
