Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 18, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGfc DAILY HER AX D Saturday, January 18, 1913 LEAD INCOAST LEAGUE Fast Hockey -Vancouver was Loser in Close Game Victoria, B.C., Jan. 17.-Victoria nosed out Vancouver in a clean game here tonight, by a score of 4 to 3, and went to the lead in the Pacific Coast league. There was but a shade between the teams, and that shade must he allotted the Victoria team. ^They never checked better, nnd their drives were bad, but they scored on a lucky chance they had not earned, in the second period, after Victoria had scored once, the Vancouver team came to life, and for a few minutes it was fast hockey. "Cyclone" Taylor became "cyclonic" for a while, taking the puck in for two goals and the other was scored by Harris. In the third period honors were even. JOHNSON TORMENTED BY THE "SPOOKS" Chicago, Jan. 16.-Jack Johnson, suffering from an old fash'oned case of "bants," limped into the o'Vico of Chas. F. Dewoody of the federal department of justice and complained bitterly because he was detained in one of the death cells of the county jail Tuesday night after his return from Battle' Creek, Mich. The .negro swore "spoo's'' made merry around his cell all nirht, some of them dancing about the floor and others amusing themselves by keeping on the outside of the iron caa;e. "For the first time in my life, I'm suffering from a weak back," Johnson said. "That's due to my thrashing around, all night when the 'spoo s' were-bothering me. Look here-," and he displayed a part of a large porous plaster on his back. "I thought you had a larvae comfortable room','' Dewoody said. "NTo complaint about the size," the negro replied, "but just think o� sleeping in a room where men have spent their last night on earth. I'd rather jump from the top of a 20-storey building tnaa repeat the experience." " x SEEKS TO STOP PRIZE FIGHTS California Senator Introduces Bill Limiting Bouts to Ten Rounds . With Eight Ounce Gloves Sacramento, Cal., Jan. 17.-Iu the State legislature today, a bill was introduced by Senator Brown, of Los Angeles, which has for its object the stamping out of prize fighting in Cal. iforaia, His bill reads: "Boxing exhibitions, at which no admission fee is received or charged, directly or indirectly, may be held within this state, said boxing exhibitions must he of limited number of rounds, not exceeding ten. "Contestants must wear gloves of not less than eight ounces each in weight and receive no prize other than a medal cr trophy to be awarded: to the "winner, not to exceed in value the sum of $25, which said medal lor trophy must have permanently engraved thereon the name of winner and date of event.'' SIX-DAY RACER HURT Belgian Collided With Frenchman-^-Former in Grave Condition Paris, Jan. 18.-While riding in the six-day bicycle race here last night, Cyril Van Houwaert, the Belgian champion, and Petit Breton, a Frenchman, collided. The Belgian when picked up was found to be suffering from a broken collar bone and internally hurt. His condition is grave. FAST GAME AT REGINA Regina, Jan. 17.-The fastest hockey: game in the provincial league was played here tonight, between the Capitals and., the Reginas, when the two Regina teams clashed, the former win sing by 5 ,to 4. by appointment to (By James J. Corbett, former Heavyweight Champion of the World) Jack Johnson and Al Palzer are to meet in a finish fight in Paris next June-maybe. It depends on the result of the legal battle the United States authorities are now waging against the colored champion. If Johnson is lucky enough to escape the bastile the match will take place. The color line is not drawn in Paris. And Palzer is not partieular in the matter of coior, either. In fact, he has long cherished the ambition to fight Johnson and considered Mc-Carty and other white men as mere stepping stones to the chance to box for the title. It was his over-confl-dence that, contributed, not a little to defeat In the New Year's Day battle with McCarty. Tom OMipurke has not lost Palzer. He still thinks Al will some day be the champion. Tom had, 'tis Said, practically arranged 2ov ii-o Johnson bout before McCarty clashed with Pallet. When the latter was beaten the match was offered McCarty, but Luther refused to bcx Johnson or any other negro. It is no sure thing that the match will, ever get..beyond the signing of articles of agreement. Johnson may have' other piasters to attend to in June. The federal courts will decide ttte| point. Bint if it does go through Palzer will be|& lucky fellow. It will give him the "chance of a lifetime, and' one that seldom comes to a defeated fighter. And should he prove the winner Palzer would be . recognized as world's, champion and in a position to dictate to McCarty, his erstwhile conqueror. Truly, this would be a peculiar state of affairs. There is some talk of Luther McCarty meeting, Jess Willard in a ten round bout within the next few weeks Although Luther and his manager both insist that they will not consider a proposition calling for a match before July the Fourth, it is known that the Garden and Empire clubs of this city are angling for the "white champion" and the bait is said to be very enticing. It may be McCarty has no intention of deserting the ring for the foot- lights and that'the talk of not fighting again until next July was a scheme of the * shrewd Billy McCar-ney to get the promoters' to raise their bids. The two Macks will do well to ponder over what happened to Al Palzer during his five ct six months' lay-off. Palzer was a bear cat last spring.. From all accounts he was a very tame feline on New Year's Day. McCarty will never become popular in this locality until he consents to box Willard again. Those who were present when the boys met last summer concede Jess an excellent chance to beat Luther while admitting that the latter must have improved wonderfully to trim Kaufman, Flynn and Palzer. They were both very green in the Garden bout, but there was no question of Willard's superiority. He outboxed ; and" outfought McCarty from beginning to � end. It would seem to me that Luther would be anxious to wipe this stain of defeat from his escutcheon, but it may be he entertains too great a respect for the great strength and hitting powers of the gigantic Texan^ 'However, "Willard need not despair. There is Al Palzer ready and willing to fight anybody at the'drop of a hat. If nothing else can be said in his favor, Palzer -can never be charged with cowardice. He fears .no man and would much rather fight than train. A match with- Willard would be most welcome. It is pa-rt of Tom O'Rourke's plan to fight Palzer as often as. possible and Willard Would be given preference over any of the other heavies. There is no doubt that Willard is splendid pugilistic timber and if he can "put it on" Palzer, he could force McCarty to recognize his challenge. When Jess boxed Soldier Kearns a few weeks ago he' showed marked improvement over, the form displayed against McCarty. Particularly was this observed of his hitting. H* wasted little strength in wild swings and appeared to have mastered the art of ^punching straight from the shoulder, something both he and McCarty were totally ignorant of last summer. Altogether WillaTd impress- j ed local fans more favorably than any other "hope" seen in New York.

As'a matter of fact, Pat's middle name is Confidence, and he .possesses a world of it. "' , "It's this' way," says be,, ''ZybazKo must throw me twice within an hour to win the handicap. I don't have to do any aggressive 'wrestling, and I think I'm a good enough man on the defensive to beat out the best wrestler ever born.

I'll be' there to gain a fall"myself if I can see a possible chance to do $6." Taber, Jan. 18.-�In-a.district league hockey match here last night, the "Chefs" had no difficulty in defeating the team from ; Lethbridge. The, score, which was S to. 3, is a good indication of the comparative strength of the teams. The "Chefs" were in better form thans in their previous game 'with the visitors, when they were stood off 5 to 3, and with Doo Barber back in the game, the winners had an inestimable amount of added strength oyer the team that faced Lethbridge before. Lethbridge put up a hard fight, but they were hopelessly outclassed. *- JESS WESTERGAARD AFTER ?�JNG ' HONORS Duluth, Minn., .Jan. 17.-Claiming to possess a'i reach - greater than Jack Johnson, weighing 218 �pounds, and standing six feet three inches in height, Jess Wes-tergaard, the wrestler, announced here today that he was going after the heavyweight boxing championship.

BOWLING MATCH POSTPONED The visit of Macleod bowlers to Lethbridge today In their return engagement with the local trundlers, had to be postponed.

This draw saw the largest score so far in the 'spell hung up, when A. G. Gillespie soundly trounced Gosnell by the  .ore of 22 to 8. Moffatt, of East Calgary, created a surprise when he won from D.
