DOOIN REGRETS BATTERY SALE Former Manager of Phillies Praises Alexander and Kllllfer Charles Dooin, once manager of tb.e Phillies and a man who did much to develop and bring out Alexander's great skill as a pitcher, calls his sale by William F. Baker to the Chicago Cubs little short of German ruthless-ness. He is quoted as saying: "I was thunderstruck when I read the news. Money can never replace wonders like Alexander and Killifer. Alexander was the greatest pitcher in the history of the game, and it is a matter of much personal pride to me that I was responsible for his development. "Selling Alexander, to my mind, is something like the practice of the Germans in demolishing a cathedral or destroying priceless works of art." All of which goes to show that there are, after all, some men in baseball who hold sentiment above price-but come to think of it, Dooin is just now out. of baseball."

MEET Three Cities Campaign for Premier Bowling Event In 1919 $30,000 IN PRIZE MONEY Cincinnati, Jan. 15.-This year's fight for the honor of entertaining the American bowling congress and staging the international bowling tournament in 191!) promises to be the hottest battle in the history of the organization. Already the representatives of the bowling associations of Detroit, Toledo and St. Louis have shied their casters into the ring by seeking headquarters at the Hotel Sinton, the official rendezvous for this year's meeting in Cincinnati, and it. is promised that there will be other candidates in the field during the next few days, exhorting delegates to the Cincinnati tournament to refrain from malting up their minds until the full quantity and quality of th'e "milk and honey" to be found in their respective cities is revealed to them. Cincinnati Makes Plans Meanwhile Cincinnati is making arrangements to give visiting bowlers a welcome and a series of entertainments that will completely overshadow anything ever offered the pin knights of America anywhere. Under the able direction of August Herrmann, chairman of the national baseball commission, and former president of the American bowling congress,, the local committee has already made remarkable progress in laying out the entertainment program, as well as making preparations for the proper and perfect conduct 0t the tournament on the 16 standard alleys which are being constructed the spacious' Ohio national guard armory.

Manager Jennings faces his same old troubles next spring. He needs capable pitchers, v en who can take their turn on the rubber with a fair chance of^winning. The Tigers provide all the hitting necessary, but the pitchers have fallen down woefully in the past. v , Erickson w.s with the Tigers, in 1016 but needed experience. Last year he did great work for the San Fraa-cisco club in the Pacific Coast league and was recalled by President Navin. He was considered almost sure to make a place fur himself among the, regular hurlers of 1918. . . . , - EXHIBITION GAMES SCHEDULED Chicago Nationals to Play on Spring Training Trip ? how > 4^ > PLAYERS LIKE PLAN > 1 Various opinions might have >. been forthcoming from divers with more or less emphasis: I am in favor of anything that 5> gives the ballplayer money - I'm sure sore. 1 had counted trying to get, a slice of that 5> world series money for years. >*He's put it over at last.-John *t J.

POLYGAMY-BY HUN ORDER According to despatches from Rome, reports reaching the Vatican declare that polygamy Is encouraged openly by the military authorities of Germany. .  The Catholic clergy recently came into possession of several copies of pamphlets which have been distributed widely among ^he troops at tlje front. The booklets are entitled, "Lateral Marriage; the only means for the formation of a new powerful armed force and for ennoblement of morality." One copy, forwarded to "Rome, exhorts married women, in the interests of the Fatherland, to obtain the necessary permission from their husbands to contract lateral marriages, based up personal inclination, with married men, who, in turn, must obtain their wives' consent. Such lateral marriages, it is stated, can be dissolved after children are born. Their object is to in-I crease the birth rate and to mitigate conditions brought about by the war. London, .Tan. 14. - In anticipation that the present week mubt see the final phase of the discussions of the Irish convention, the Times discusses the prospects with evident anxiety over the result. "Everybody," it says, "is still entitled to hope that the last days of the convention will yet produce unanimity hut it would be sheer folly to ignore the risk of a different result, or to minimize the disastrous issue which would follow failure. For this reason we emphasize that the plain duty of the government is to be prepared for either event. "We ourselves disbelieve that total failure is any longer possible. Sir Horace Plunkett's (chairman of the convention) public utterance that at the worst 'we shall leave the Irish question better than we found it,' does not represent to common knowledge the actual facts of the situation. There notoriously has been an approach' to acquiescence in certain broad principles. "If, as we fear, the convention haF not yet reached that substantial mea sure of agreement which would mere Iy require the blessing of the imperial parliament^ it will at le%st be able U give the government a new lead 1;; dealing with the problem." The Timoj then appeals to the government to have their own plan ready dealing with the problem Immediately, and dwells on the great importance of a settlement to the empire, to the progress of the war and to the relations with the United States. Prominence to the question is also to be given by the Daily Chronicle, which prints a- four column article from its Dublin correspondent under the head: "Critical days for the Irish convention." The writer makes a strong plea for agreement, and, referring to Sir Horace Plunkett's statement as quoted by the Times, which has been construed in some quarters as foreshadowing possible failure, says: "This prospect of a possible breakdown of the convention makes observers a lit'le uneasy." SECESSION TvlOTION MAY BE RULED 00 / T Quebec, Jan. 14.-Whether the Fran-coeur motion before the assembly is in order, according to parliamentary rules, is a question that is being considered by a number of leading members of the house. When the motion i3 reached, should it be reached, this question may be submitted for the consideration of (he speaker. It is pointed out that the motion does not ask the house to vote on a definite proposition but merely to express an opinion in the event of the other provinces being of the opinion that Quebec is a drawback to confederation. It is pointed out that no particular provinces are specified, nor does the motion ask that theopinion's of such other provinces shall be secured, nor oven make any suggestion to the Quebec government to secure the opinions of the other provinces. toreqIsInall -u.s. sailing vessels Washington, Jan. 14.-Requisitioning of all American sailing vessels was forecasted today when the 'shipping board requested the department ot commerce to report the location of such vessels.

OIL PLANT HERE TO BE EXTENDED Additions to Cost of $50,000 To Be Made, For Increasing Business That extensions will be made to their local distribution plantthis summer which cost between $40,000 and ?50,000 was the statement made to the Herald by V. E. Green, local manager of the Imperial Oil Co. Ltd., and with this extension Lothbridge will be established permanently as the distributing ceftre of the company for Southern Alberta. Work will start as early in tlie spring as weather conditions w'll permit. The extensions, which will include two new tanks 25 feet in diameter and 30 feet high and a new brick and concrete two-storey building, will increase the storage capacity of the plant from 40,000 gallons to 250,000 gallons, giving storage for about 20 tank cars of oil. This will allow for the sh'pment from Lethbridge of tank cars to 3S sub-stations in Southern Alberta which had hitherto been supplied direct from the refineries, and will do much to relieve shortages of oil in the busy .'seasons when congestion of traffic is most likely to occur". The foundations for the tanks are already here. The big new bu'lding will be used for u general warehouse for petroleum products. Additional lubricating oil space is also to be provided. The company has also purchased 100 feet additional trackage from John Taylor adjoining their old property, giving them now 250 fe^t in all. Mr. Green sees a very big demand for oil in sight for the coming summer, especially on account of the great increase in the number of small farm tractors now in use. This .will bring into use the lower grade oils such as" kerosene and distillate. The company, which recently changed its name from the Imperial Oil Co. to Imperial Oil Ltd., is preparing for this by building a pipe line from Wyoming to the refineries at Regina. A new stock subscription of $5,000,000 has also beeu made for construction purposes. in civil service act Ottawa, Jan. 14.-Hon. W. J. Roche, chairman of the civil service commission, when asked as to the report that the commission had recommended to the government the placing of the outside service under the jurisdiction of the civil service act intimated that no formal report in regard to the latter Is in course of preparation. The commission, he said, at. the request of the government and following a conference between the commissioners and the deputy heads of the; department had submitted a memorandum to the government, containing all available information relating to the matter but no further report making definite recommendations is contemplated at present.
