Toronto, Jan. 19.-Saturday night's game at the arena, which Quebec won from the Tecumseh's by four to two, suited the fans better than any other national association game seen hero this season. There was a perfect playing surface for the teams and the pace throughout the entire game was terrific. ThoJ.score at the end ,of the first period*was one all while the Indians .were in front at the. expiration of the-second period, two to one. Quebec ran away from the Te-cumsehs in the l.^st ten minutes of the /I'.-.il period, scoring three goals, and blanking the Indians. As in many of their former defeats, it was speed that beat the locals, the ancient eapitols had speed all over the ice. Iu that respect they reminded the spectators of the Canadiens, in tlie latter's game here. Vair and Throop were the only members of Nicholson's team .jvho had "foot" enough to check back effectively with the easterns. The Stanley cup champions opened a barrel of spe?d right at the commencement and kept on handing it to the Tecumsehs steadily until the latter wilted on end and Quebec, apparently a beaten team, emerged with a two goal lead and rafter starting the funl' period with the score 2 to 1 against them. ST. ANDREWS CRACK JUNIOR O.K.A. TEAM Jim Corbett's Ring Comment All other Old Country games were reported in Saturday's issue. (By James J. Corbett, former Heavy-(his consistent performances against - weight Champion of the World) J all comers. While the calibre of his adversaries in local bouts has not PLAYED IN HEAVY AT IN WANDERERS DEFEATED TORONTO TEAM, 3 TO 1-POOR EXHIBITION There are boxers who have the great gift of making friends and of keeping them in defeat the same as in victory. I have known boys of little skill, and to whom success in the ring was the exception and not the rule, who could boast of regular armies of admirers. The meTe announcement of a match in which one of these boxers was a principal menat a guarantee of a house well filled with boosters. Then there are. others who never succeed in striking the popular chord, even though .their ring careers are brilliant. When Jimmy Britt was in the hey-day of his career and winning every start, he was one of the most cordially disliked boxers who ever claimed San Francisco as home. The antipathy to-. Britt was intense and the majority of those who went to see him box did so with the hope that he wouid be- soundly thrashed. He. never knew ' popularity in his home town until he had tasted defeat. Leach Cross occupies a like position in NewYork to that Britt held in San Francisco. Leach is a good drawing card because a great many fans would delight in seeing him licked and for fear they might miss that pleasing performance, attend regularly. While the authorities have decreed that all persons who patronize boxing matches must) conduct themselves in manners befitting gentlemen, the aversion to Cross is so marked that it is an exceedingly difficult task to prevent the hoodlum element from giving expression to  their feelings. During the progress of a bout his opponent is invariably applauded and encouraged and Leach, reviled good and plenty, and at times the language is not of the choicest. This reverse rooting has not seriously Interfered with Cross' success, but in ihe opinion of the fans is largely because he is a shrewd matchmaker, and has so far sidestepped the classiest lightweights with the exception of Joe Rivers. New York is getting so few good matchee these days that the sports ?iare rooting hard that nothing will 'happen to "crab" the Packey McFajr-land-Jack Britton bOut scheduled- for �"February 7 at Madison Square Gar-; den. It would be a hard 'blow to the - fans if this match were called off. ThereMs considerable ill-feeling be-tween the beys and for that reason the "faithful" anticipate a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

New York, Jan. 18.-Edward G. Barrow, president of the International Baseball League, will be in Chicago at the National Baseball Commission meeting to argue against the salary limit of $6,000 a month for Class AA clubs. This rule was recently made elective iu the National Association of Baseball Clubs. Barrow contends that the International League cannot operate under such a.limit, although it subscribed to the rule at the annual meeting in December. He declares that several of his league clubs have found themselves in hot water because some of their hightsalarled men are likely to be lost.

WILL PLAY RUGBY TB SUIT OWN IDEALS WESTERN ^CANADA UNION WILL ACT INDEPENDENT OF EASTERN BODY Regina, Jan. 19.-As a protest against the attitude of the eastern rugby authorities, t.^ie Western Canadian Rugby Billon, at its second annual meeting held here on Saturday, night decided to break away from the Canadian Rugby union, formulate playing rules of its own, and altogether ignore the seif-appointed eastern rugby authorities. A Western Canada �Rugby Union rule book will be published, containing the playing rules and other data-Including the constitutions and bylaws of the affiliated unions. This radical action came as a result of the attitutde of the East towards Western rugby men during the past two years. The refusal of the Canadian union' to consider the sug-gestipns made by. the, Alberta Union being the immediate cause of the drastic action. .... > The rules under which, the Western Canada Union will play will be but slightly changed this year ftqm those of the Canadian Union. They /will be merely a revision of the present rules with the redundancies and contradictions removed. However, this does not signify the Western Canadian Union is unwilling to break from the beaten track as far as rules are concerned, but it was thought advisable for the first year to devote the energies to the perfection of the organization of the union rather than to the details of the game. Three-Year Schedule It was decided to adopt the following schedule which would cover three years, and would assure all provinces of at least one game: 1913, Alberta at Saskatchewan; Manitoba, at 'winner; 1914, Manitoba, at Alberta; Saskatchewan, at winner; 1915, Saskatchewan, at Manitoba; Alberta, at winner. The setting of dates, and the places of playing next year's game caused a very warm discussion.. Alberta thought that at least one of the games should be assured for itself.. C. H. Bellanger was,chosen president of the Western Canada Union for the year 1913, and the place of the next annual meeting was fixed for Calgary; Murray Thomson was elected secretary-treasurer. - Another action, which is of considerable importance, was. the. decision- to have a fixed Bum guaranteed to bach team for transportation. CURLING Ladies Play A unique exhibition of curling was seen at the local rink on Saturday, when a number of lady exponents of the game were pitted against one another in regular style. It 'was a match in which the married ladies, skipped by Mrs. Stacey, contested honors of victory with, single ladies skipped by Miss Aird. It was some game. Which side won has not been exactly determined yet. It will take considerable figuring out. The per-sonel of rinks: Mrs. Stae'ey, 'skip Miss Aird; skip Mrs- Blah.chard Miss B.
