The final score was 5-4. "Cyclone" Taylor had tied the score a jsouple of minutes previous with one of his sensational rushes, and it looked like anybody's game when Dunderdale broke away at centre with the" puck, rushed up the left wing and slipped the rubber across into the Vancouver net and broke up a game �h�t was replete with sensational rushes, effective checking and wonderful .work by the opposing goal cus-tcdians.

Haw many points does this ;.iBand'coimf-and'alBo boir:jnsny points can you count with :,the tour fives-alone, and what Is Ihe highest possf-. b]� count in crihbage.': Thanking you, fhr this information, I am. Yours ver}'. . truly, G. N. TBN-NANT. . Coutts, a!*sa.  7?he � Sporting Editor of the Herald does not settle ,bets, but here is an answer:  , Tbe> hand in question is .the king pin hand In the crib'game.--It is the best possible. It'is worth 29. - -Here'is how it is counted:-. . The' four fives,, with the jack, .make ���� 15-9- �� ' The four fives of themselves make lq-8.' ' >  The four flvas make six pair, worth ( The Jack, being of the same, suit as. the deck- head, 'is worth another point: . ; ' Th$ four fives alone are worth 20, being 12 for pairs and eight for 15*s.   Had the five on the c|eck head been in the hand, and Ihe jack been on the ' �Je,ck h�ad, the hand would have been WQrtaV;28, .for "his. nibs" would not have counted the extra, one. Any three fives, together with the jack of trump in the hand, and the other.five, on the dock head, will con- , .stftute a hand worth 29.  Any time anyone gets a 29 hand playing cribbage, he can bank on it thit he has counted the best hand the 52 para's in the deck can produce. And lie. can likewise bet any old thing from - his small change to a million that his 'opponent's hand is second best. If vhe'j^wants to go a little further, and , shove up some coin on long odds, he can take himself on that he will not ^hdld'as good a hand in several moons ,10* come; _ \ rTliisis the little mittful every veter-an/crib player is always looking for. �;7t's�like-a''circuit clout at a ball game -comes just often enough to keep the- game interesting. ilhmcapolis; 'Minn., .Ian. 21.-At a mecLins; of thq dub owners and base-bs(l'nicn l'rom^I innipeg, Duluth, Superior, Fori WiTlianr, Virginia, Grand I-Torks. Minneapolis and St. Haul today at the West Hotel, tentative plans for the formation of a new league to be known as .the Northern were formed and the league will become afact' as soon as the National .Commission and National Association have given their sanction. At a recent meeting of the American Association that organization granted permission for the invasion vi the Twin Cities by a minor league ami the' meeting of today was-called to consider ways and means for the new baseball circuit. Moose Jaw. Jan. 21.-Before a pack ed house tonight. George Gion, of Nebraska, defeated Clarence Ecklund, of Moose Jaw, for the light heavyweight championship of Canada wrestling belt, and ?2,000 a side. The first fall went to Gion in SI minutes with a hamraerlock. while the Nebraskan took the second in six minutes with a similar hold. Ecklund injured his right ,arin, and was obliged to practically forfeit the second fall. v An immense amount of money of money changed hands! Mayor Gaynor will assign 400 policemen to preserve order when John MeGraw and Rube Jlarquard meet. SALARY LIMIT QUESTION WILL BE INTERNATIONAL STUMBLING BLOCK NOT LIKELY WITH THAT CALGARY AND EDMONTON WILL AGREE SOUTHERN CITIES - UNION ASSOCIATION ABOUT "ALL IN" lu the opinion of C. J. Eckstoru?, On that question'Lethbridge and Me-the Union Association baseball or- diciue Hat will take issue. We know gaiuzation will not sec the light of j here that we cannot afford to pay day this year. Mr. Eckstorm is well, a team a salary, including the man-posted oir the aiiairs of the Union! ager, that will be more than $1300 Association, and he fails to see how per month-and under the present the league' can exist another year conditions here ?1300 is going some. owing to the breadth of the circuit, which is somewhat after the old eight-club Western Canada league - tqp extensive^. * Even as the great length of the old Western Canada circuit, wliich included Winnipeg, was npt commensurate with success, so is the Union Association circuit in a like circumstance", which is bounded Whether a S1300 limit will appeal to the moguls in the north as a jo'*:c or not, it still remains to be seen where Lethbridge can do better. It is not likely that Great Falls and the other Montana cities will sec their way clear in raising the- limit advocated by Lethbridge. Great FalU may not seriously object to a higher on the north by Great Falls, and on figure, but Helena, Missoula and. the tne south by Salt Lake. The gate other smaller cities on the other side receipts fail to meet the travelling would not fall in line and Great Chicago, Jan. 2i,-O'Conuell's gymnasium, the largest private gymnasium in Chicugo, and the training place of all of -Chicago's listic four hundred, has closed its doors against Jack Johnson, the nesw-o heavyweight. The closing was no mere act of surrendering to popular opinion on the part of O'Connell, who hns known Johnson for many years and who regards, him merely as a foolish, money and notoriety mad man, but followed a concerted move on tho part of the e'-i'.er fighters who train there. At least a dozen of the well known knights of the gloves, including Pack-ey McFarland, Jess Willaril, Charley White, Charley Cutler ami' more of the same class of men, went to O'Connell and declared that unless the black was barred from the use of the gymnasium they would feel compelled, to look elsewhere for accommodations, as they would not train in the. same quarters with Johnson. No ban was placed upon Johnson by the other fighters because of his color, because "Kid"' Cotton ' and Cleve Hawkins, negro lighters, were training there and it was expressly stated to O'Connell that the objector* did not care to have them barred,* only the man who disgraced the "pro. fession" by his conduct. Johnson, when told oveT the phone of his being persona non grata, is said to have been almost broken hearted. He had never before realized how deep seated was the feeling of men of all walks of life and all colors against him. "It was the knowledge that his own kind had turned against him that broke Jack up," said O'Connell tonight. "He had no idea up to that time how much in disfavor he was. 1 have known him a long time and his sunny disposition has always made him a great favorite with me until his actions made it impossible for me to feel kindly toward him. I hated to rule him out; but it was only fair to the others that I did so. He can never box in my place again." TOM O'ROURKE SUES AN ENGLISH PAPER The ice at the lake la in better condition now than at any previous time of the season. It Is smooth as glass, and without flaw almost. The weather and the ice conditions of late have not been very congenial for skating, but last night the elements took a most agreeable turn, and the lake again presented an animated appearance, notwithstanding that it was but little known , that the ice was cleared c^f snow and in good condition for skating again. If the weather holds good, there will be. a boom in skating, no doubt, and greater crowds than ever will tax the street car capacity in conveying the skaters to and from Henderson Park. MARKETS JOHNSON AND LYNCH BID FOR SERVICES OF CELEBRATED ' UMPIRE TWO GOOD ONES TO FIGHT HERE FOLEY AND ENSIGN HAVE ;'' DRAWN UP AN AGREEMENT ',. � ' -DATE NOT SETTLED ' Articles were signed up this morning between Jud Foley, the New Dayton scrapper and At Ensign of Whit-la, which will bring these two together in Lethbridge son?e time during the first two weeks of February. Both Foley and Ensign are well known in' the south, and have put on some good exhibitions of the fistic game in the past. Foley says he fell down in hit; recent light with Rogers owing to lack of training, and "to avoid v> repetition' of his showing he has Kid Cutler o.f Great Falls, in-New Dayton training with him. The exact date of the fight is not known. Kid Cutler is taking advantage of his stay in Canada to take on a Canuck fighter, in the person of Miller of Milk River. They will fight at Sweet Grass on Jan. 31. Falls would not go contrary to them in all probability. Failing a suitable agreement vyith the cities to: the north, Lethbridge ! expenses over such a large expanse. With the blow-up of the Union Association will come an attempt on the part of the Montana cities' to . _ (Jorni the already-broached interna-; has another alternative which looks tional league with Alberta cities. In ! mighty good and, in fact, just a little that connection there is one menac- i better than a league including Cal-ing drawback, which is ever present gary and Edmonton. It will be in the prospective from the local , broached at the proper. time, ppint of view-the salary limit question. If Edmonton amd Calgary decide in favor of the International project they will undoubtedly want a limit with which we can't agree with here in Lethbridge, or at Medicine Hat: : In the. north a salary limit not less than 51500, not .including the manager's salary, will be aimed at. SASKATOON'S MAMMOTH BONSPEIL OPENS TODAY Saskatoon, , Jan. 21.-Saskatoon's big bonspeil will open tomorrow, with eighty-three rinks competing, which is the largest number of rinks that has competed in any bonspeil outside of Winnipeg.

Hockey is supposed to be the lineal descendant of the "hurley" game as played in Ireland, before Canada occupied' the large place it does now on the map of the world, and the game is now accepted as purely Canadian; but it is the Dutch from whom we learned to skate according to a writer in the Toronto Mail and Empire. "The name of the inventor," he says, "is lost in obscurity with the name of the inventor of the first stove," but we know that so far as modern .times are concerned the first; manufacturer of skates was a Dutchman, and the first skater was a Dutchman. "Passing over the days when every skater was the author of his own skates, we find that in the middle of the seventeenth century the Dutch had cornered most of the trade and were admitted to be the best manufacturers of skates in the known world. The Holland model was copied on all hands and the. Canadians who skated then were dependent upon the Dutch for their styles. Then, as now, the blade of the skate was composed of iron or steel. It was attached to the-foot by means of a wooden platform. A skater simply stood upon his skato and had It lashed upon his foot. It was some time subsequently that-the strap was; invented, and for many years the'raaft�r the skate was ' a curved blade of steel* with a wooden-top, which was attached to the skater by means of'Btraps. A peculiarity of the early Dutch, skates was the: curve In front. It. may have been deemed immodest tp end the blades in a point; more/pwhaljly it w^s considered dan-gerous^sjn^ny-event the skate ended in a'wiiorl; bfvsteel, the skater ,being of '.gpinjon :l;hat: flhe curve prevented him from stubbing his toe or trippping on the ice. ' \i(nd 'the boot and skate- are attached totte foot at the same time. We iiare disc too, the advantages- of the, stra^ht blade, and the ancient curve has be: abandoned. In Europe the demand fo speed has not been so insistent, and there the curved blade remains to give the Europeans an advantage in fancy skating, while to this continent of the straight blade they have yit-.ided I'm? palm for speed." London, Jan. 22.-Sporting circles here are agitated over the'.forthcoming libel suit by Torn O'Rourke, the boxing contest 'praJnpl-r and manager, of New York, 'against the proprietors 0f "Boxing"' a London Sporting paper. The courts today fixed February 11 for the hearing of-the case. The paper charged O'Roiirke with discreditable practices in connection with various big bpSing contests promoted or managed by hint in the United States mentioning what it calls specific instances. O'Rourke is, of course, claiming heavy damages. Many well-known American sporting men are coming over as witnesses and for their and O'Rourke's convenience, the case has been put back to February 11. ? : : > ? > >>> CANADIAN SOCCER / To Be Affiliated With Old Country Federation' London, Jan. 22.-Fred Bar- > ker, president of the Dominion >>" Football association, sails for .> Canada on Friday, with official will be admitted to member-ship in the federation. >;. .> .;. .;. ^. �;. .;. ^.

' TROUBLE RIFE IN ENGLISH RUGBY London, Jan. 22.-A sensation in amateur rugby football circles was caused today, when it became known tbatv following the wholesale suspensions of clubs and players by the Rugby iUnion, which 'controls the game, on charges of professionalism, an official of the union is investigating similar charges against Oxford University players. These players are alleged to have-taken part in a French tour at Christ-; mas, "without authority of the governing body, for which they received 'expenses.' " Chicago, Jan. 21.-That a good umpire always is In demand Is being demonstrated these days in the baseball world. Hank O'Day Is so besieged by both major leagues that he's afraid to "go out" of the house after dar The- National league wants to take him back and the American league desire's to put him on the staff. Hank is up in the air on the matter and threatens to turn down both. ' week ago Ban Johnson, president of the American league, cornered Hank and offered him n swell salary if:he would make decisions in the games next season. Johnson seemed confident or landing the veteran, and expressed joy over it. It was thought by: this/ he would have the signature to a contract. But Johiison 'wanted polite in' the matter, realizing lliat O'Day had previously been an official in the National league.. He decided to wait until Tom Lynch, president of the National, had been here, so that he might first procure his .permission, Baseball law doesn't require much permission on the matter of umpires, but baseball umpires do. Lynch Fails to Sign O'Day Lynch was here for the meeting of the National commission on Thursday and unexpectedly balked. When asked' if he had granted permission to Jobxson to sign p'Day,: he said: ,"0, no: Hank O'Day belongs to the National league. We want him to umpire for us. I'm going to see him before I' leave (own." Lynch did see O'Day yesterday morning and plead- | ed. >vith him until time to take the noon ^train for New York. He departed without signing his man. "I didn't agree to work in the National league," said O'Day last night. T don't know yet what I'll'do. There are other things to do in the world betides umpiring ball games, and I may dec!d,e to do something else. At least, I'lr not decide to accept a job With either league before Feb. 1." Last year O'Day quit umpiring and took the job of manager of the Cincinnati Reds. At that time he never expected to go back to the old job. But Hank was not engaged to manage the Reds again, and .apparently there 'were no other jobs in the major leagues as manager. Consequently, it left Hank without employment. ; Johnson Tries to Land Umpire Then Ban Johnson reasoned that as O'Day'had quit umpiring in the National and acted as manager of one of the National league clubs, it would, nejer do for him to go back as an umplre.ih that league. The fans might roast Hank-for-coming back and the ball players in the league might be Inclined to. chide him about his former, job as manager. Consequently, Johnson saw; the -best thing for Hank to do would he to take a job as umpire." in. the American league, where apparently'he .thought no one would knb'W Hank. Lynch, reasons differently and sees no^cause'tfor not having O'Day return to .the'National league as an umpire.
