The Frank Moran-Fred Fulton match ! that fell through last summer is on again and this time it may go through according to schedule. When thi3 pair was matched before Fulton was &^iur.rari^ not s> \ ^ ���& to nesB uuffer in Grecian quarters, so something had to be "did." An 6.O.S. call was sent to the real Windy City for a real scrapper, and soon "Mr. Harrison' was on his way from VChi" and matched up with "Young* Ross. In training boats tho visiting gladiator didn't look so much to the local - fans. In fact, "clr-ss" was only conspicuous by its absence and the "sports" were eager to place their hard-earned coin on the local favorite. Strange to say, there were some mysterious people who were only too willing to take all the bets. Well, the scrap came off and Mr. Robs was snowed under by the gent from Chicago, who by the way, turns out to be a Jew of Greek nationality who can fight. In addition to cleaning up about $5000 real mon�y, the Greeks put a crimp In the popularity of one "Young'' Ross, restauranteur. The truth of the matter is that Ross and Hudson had not gone into the restaurant business when Harrison was picked to meet Ross. Ross was chosen by the local club early in December and the bout was to have come off New Year's Eve. Ross didn't acquire the Plaza until a couple of days before New Years. At tor Ross' popularity being on a is the Becond season for the Old-Timers to capture the honors in the Charity Bonspiel.

Magnates Mav Feel Like Gambling With Star P\ayen New York.-With the arrival of thov new year major league club owners* are preparing to line up their players jfor tho 1918 season and the time for mailing out contracts will soon arrive. Ways and means of putting retrenchment policies into effect were discussed at the Cincinnati meeting and it is a certainty that salaries are to be trimmed in every direction. For the first time since the death of the Federal League, the form of contract which calls for a bonus is expected to return to favor among the club owners. With the salaries trimmed the club owners can afford to gamble with their stars and pitchers In particular will j be promised bonuses for winning a certain number of games. Club owners of both major leagues admit that their total expenses this year will be much heavier than in the past, oven with salaries reduced. Railroad transportation will be proportionately greater, hotel rates have risen and the cost of playing equipment, uniforms, shoes, bats, balls and gloves has gone up. the treasury temporarily by sale of star material. Hendricks talked at length regarding the proposed sale of Honrsby to the Cubs. In part he said: "Right now the Cubs need more help to build up a ball club than do the Cardinals. For years I have been keeping close watch on the major league clubs and I think I am fairly competent to judge of the strength of the various teams. To me it seems it j would be easier to build the Cards into a pennant contender than to patch i up the Cubs to the same extent. Card Talent Outshines Cubs "Why should St. Louis sacrifice its ball club to help the Cubs? I am not ! claiming any pennants for the Cards right now, but I am saying that I will go the limit to be up there in the fight all the time. And even though the Cubs have Alexander and Killifer, I am satisfied we have better material on which to construct a pennant winner than Mitchell has. "The idea in baseball is always to beat the winner. That means to beat the team that copped the pennant in I the previous race. It helps the whole league, in tho matter of attendance, to have the champion clubs set on the rocks. That's just baseball. I've met It all through my experience in the game. Every one is always out to beat the winner. St. Louis Deserves Winner "But in this case, if the idea is to beat the Giants, why not let the rest of the teams kick in with players to the Cardinals and let us be the ones to beat McGraw's men. St. Louis is a great ball town-perhaps the greatest in the country, if given a chance to root for winners, as have Chicago, New York, Boston and Philadelphia." Hendricks was not picking on the Cubs particularly when he related his views on the sale of stars. Jack has no grudge against Chicago, for this has been his home practically his life. His comparison of the relative prospects of Cards and Cubs was brought out because the Cards have figured prominently in print recently as being ready to dispose of their star talent for cash in hand. Hendrlck would not mention Honrby's name In his talk in connection with sales, but because the Cubs have been so hot after Hornsby it is fair to presume he had the crack shortstop in mind. seemed to think the risk was too great, considering the small purse that was offered at that time. But since Fulton's talk of meeting Willard he has become a greater attraction and Promotor Tortorich of New Orleans was able to make the men an offer that neither could afford to pass up. As the battle will be a 20-round affair one or the other of these men will be completely ellm inated from the running in ail probability. When Moran met Willard two years ago it waB clearly proved that he had ;io chance to beat the champion at that time, but since he was not knocked out I'Dran still is able to pretend that he thinks he could beat Willard in a longer battle. However, the general public lleves that. Moran has shot his and never again will be considered n dangerous contender. For that reason interest in the coming match will center in Fulton's performance. If he should happen to stop the game Pitts-burger Fulton will be in a position to force Willard to fight or quit. On all form Moran shouli be an easy mark for Fulton, but the fact that Moran is easily the gamest heavy-weight now in the ring, while there is a doubt regarding Fulton's courage, may completely tipset the dope. It is because Moran has so much courage and determination that he is considered the best man to test Fulton's nerve. number of men of military age who, owing to their nativity, are not subject to military service, and who at the same time are holding down jobs that could well be filled by women. Many of these men are cookB, more of them are waiters, and more still are blacking boots and doing other odd jobs that should either be cut out entirely or placed in the hands of women. If these men will not go to the front, and will not of their own free will take up work, ^hich would be of real benefit to the community, Buch as farming or other productive occupations, they should be organized under the Militia Department and assigned to proper occupations, else they should be required to leave the country. A few thousand of these citified foreigners placed on the land and obliged under military law to do their share of cultivation under a fair but not a high rate of wage, would do much toward relieving the present serious situation as It pertains to production. These men are now consumers, but not producers in any sense of the word, and it would be far better to be relieved of them entirely than to have them in their present occupations. This is a case where the proper authorities should say, "iJIther get out of the country, or go to work." cording to a ruling made by the TJ. S. authorities the other day, American citizens living in Canada will be required to pay income tax to the federal treasury at Washington. This, however, it is thought, does not preclude them from paying income tax to the federal treasury at Ottawa so they are up against two income taxes. This will affect quite a large number of Southern Albertans, farmers especially, who have never taken out thei^ naturalization certificates though they have lived in Canada for a number or years. The expected result will be l rush on the part of these people u swear allegiance to King George, INI ELIMINATION OF be-bolt CHARGED WITH PLOT TO DEFRAUD MERCHANT FUNERAL MADAME MERCfER Montreal, Jan. 17.-The funeral of Madame Mercler, widow of Hon.
