Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 22, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, JANUARY 22, 1914 ftFTER JOIN HATIO ASS'N LETHBRIDGE CURLERS WILL TRY TO BRING THE HAT CURLERS IN LINE BONSPIEL HERE SET BACK A DAY -RESULTS OF LOCAL COMPETITION The bonspiel of the local Curling club will be deferred one day, it will take place on the 3rd of Feb. instead of the 2nd. This has been done to rUow of sufficient time after the Medicine Hat bonspiel �which though slated to close on the Friday previous, will not likely close till Saturday and there will be a goodly number of Lethbridge curlers at the Hat taking in the 'spiel. It is the intention of the local representatives at the Hat to try and induce the club there to join the Crows Nest Pass Curling association, and there is every likelihood of their efforts bearing fruit. With the Medicine Hat club as a member the association will be materially strengthened and greater prestige will be inherited. LOCAL COMPETITION The play in the local competition at the curling rink last night was not as close as the two previous nights, but that proved no detriment to the excitement in the games. Sta-cey and Johnson rinks were forced to play extra ends because of a tie, Stacey's winning by a point.

The most notable pilots thus far secured are Joe Tinker of the Chicago team; Mordecai Brown of the St Louis club; Otto Kuabe of the Baltimores; Jimmy Sheckard of the Pittsburgs; George Stovall of the Kansas City aggregation; Bill Phillips, of Indianapolis, and Larry Schafly of Buffalo. The manager for Barney Hepburn's Toronto team has not been selected as yet, but as It Is knowfn Bernard is intent on his club making a good showing, It is likely that a pile oi kale will b� offered to the right man. If the Toronto team gets "Yip" Owens from Minneapolis they will have one of the best receivers iu fast company today. And he is still young, being only 2S. President Gilmore still persists in his attitude of forbidding any 1 players who have signed with or- : ganized baseball to play with the ; Feds, while Dave Fultz threatens to decorate any player who signs with the Feds, with the tinware. It looks as though there might be some action In the near future. ARROW Kotch COLLAR 2 for 2? ecats ClwB. ht>�� * C�.. Inc.

Macleod, Jan. 20.--One of the best carnivals tihat has ever been held in Macleod was the feature at the open air rink last night when about a hundred maskers thronged the ice. ^Miss Small and Messrs. Barnes, McClarty, Craven and ^Milson, who acted as the judges, made the priie awards as follows: Bfest lady skaUr-MU Irene Bruce as Cleopatra. Best gentleman skater - "Scoop"' Hunt as the King's Jester. Best couple in costume-Miss Duns-ford as Butterfly and Mr. Hunt Bast comics-E. Haug and E. Ryan as German Burgomasters.

Chicago, Jan. 21.-Reports of both warring factions of organized and outlaw baseball, the latter as represented by the Federal league, were confident' tonight of future success, j Predictions that the Federal league I would "give up the ghost" in a short time were made by President Johnson of the American league. Charles W. Murphy of Chicago echoed the sea- i timent. ! The Federal's headquarters were filled all day with men who were optimistic for the future of the new league, while about 40 ballplayers, many of them members of ma;or league teams, made calls at the office. The most noted of the players present were Russell Ford and Ed. Sweeney, battery mates of the New ^ York Americans. Howard Camnitz was also a caller. j Chicago, Jan. 21.-The Federal league today notified the powers of organized baseball that their signing of players already under contract with the federals will be fought in and out of the civil courts. This ultima- I turn was in the form ot a telegram ' which President Gilmore, of the Federal League, sent to President Baker, of the Philadelphia >'ationaIs declaring he would "protect" the contracts signed by .\d. Brenan, and Will Kil-lifer.

CALGARY BASKETBALL TEAIM TO TAKE TRIP Team That Defeated Moose Jaw Plans to go Upon Barnstorming Expedition Australian Billy Murphv who annexed tlie featherweiglit championship of the world by defeating Ike Weir at the old California Athletic Club in San Francisco t'wonty-four years ago today, had a career very much like that of Bob Fitasimmlns. His language was a pronounced cockney dialect ju-st like Ruby Robert's. Like the great Pitz, he bogan fighting In New Zealand and, also like Bob, later went to Australia. In that country he whipped the best of the little men, and many welters and lightweights. At that time Ike Weir was featiherwetght champion, and the members of the California -Athletic club were an.xiou� to get somebody who could whip the Be'Ifast Spider. The -skiprer of the Zeiilandia, which ran between San Francisco and Aus-trnlla, was a great sport, and he told the Californiaius about. .Murphy. The capt.iin was commiasion'AAiN ST. WINNIPEG Calgary, Alta., Jan. 21.-The Calgary Y. M. C. A. Basketibali club contemplate a trip to the east very soon. As champions of .Alberta lor the season of 1913, they will go as far east as Winnipeg, playing at Regina. Moose Jaw, Brandon, and ending up at Winnipeg, where they 'ivlU play a game against the champions of that cita. If it is possible they will play off for the 1914 oiiampionship against Edmonton before going, but the trip Is expected to be made before the Alberta provincial cJiampionships can he played. There is no doubt that the Calgary "Y" team is in very fine condition at the present time, and their Intention to tour should receive hearty support. It looks as if they had a team that could hold its own with the best in the farthest and middle west, and the opportunity will be given them. Moose Ja'w, a'ter their defeat of last night, are anxious to have a return game, and the Calgary boys may expect to have the hardest game of their tour, perhaps, at the Jaw. If there Is one city in the country which is not in the Federal League, but which is giving it a bit more attention than po.ssibly any other place, that burg is Philadelphia. The reason is plain, for there are just eight players who were on the Quaker payroll last year whose names are mentioned as sure to go over to the opposition before the playing season arrives. Until Monday night folks in Philadelphia placed little credence in reports concerning the defection of tlieir players, but wlien Knabe put his name to a Baltimore contract they sat up and took notice. Now, with the names ot ilagee, Cravath, Bron-nan, Alexander and Killifer mentioned, to say notliing of Doc Miller and Walsh, the fans of Philadelphia are decidedly wrought up over conditions. Fourteen years ago, when the battle between the American and National League.s was on, the Philadelphia team found its ranks riddled more than any other club in the cir^ cult. History may possibly repeat itself. FEDS. STRONGEST IN CHICAGO �, �.

REDCLIFFE AND MEDICINE HAT WON HOCKEY GAMES In the southern division of the Alberta Hockey assoclaton. Medicine Hat defeated How If4l.Tnd, 10 to 4, and Redcllffe defeated Taber, 0 to L Committee on Elevators Report _(Continued From Front Pago) Legislative committee. Some weeks later, tho secretary at Calgary was informed by members of the government over the telephone, that certain individuals claiming to represent the board ot dlroctoi-8 and local unions of the United Farmers of. Alberta wore endeavoring to have the net as en-doi-sed at the meeting of February 11, materially changed in principle, and your e.\ecutive who, with Mr. Boving-ton, formed tho sijiccIkI elevator committee, were obliged to return to Kd-monton at a few days' notice. Your committee again met the government representatives when the whole act was gone through once more, clause by clause, amd its acceptance once more re-affirmed in accordance with the instructions of the board of directors at the meeting held on Feb-niary 11. Unfortunately, however, at this time a number of articles appeared in the Press from some source or,other, makiag certain statements in regard to the want of unanimity on our board as to this iparticnlar act. It was, therefore, deemed advisable to call another special meeting of the full board, which was beld on March 17. At this meeting, after some discussion, the act as then before Parliament was finally accepted by unanimous vote of the full hoard. Your Legislative committee, in whose charge the bill had been left during Its passage through Parlla-me.nt, worked very hard for the act, meetlttg tihe cabinet, memibers of the government, and the Opposition on numerous occasions. Eventually the act received Its third reading, and was placed on the statutes of the province by unanimous vote ofi both government and opposition parties. Your Executive committee, who, under the act, became provisional di-resctors, then took charge of the organization work, and full reiport of what was done by them has already been published in connection with the first annual meeting of the new company, "which was held in August, 1913. A Siiort History Possibly a few words, tracing the progress of the work in connection with the bringing into existence ot the jMberta Farmers' Co-Operative Elevator Company, Limited, may not be out of place. It will be remembered that this matter has been before the various associations for a number Of years, a definite policy first being placed on record by the associations at the meeting with the premiers of the three provinces, held in Regina, 1908. At that time the policy of the associations was that of a straight government ownership and operation of all line elevators. That meeting led to nothing, the premiers deciding that the question could not be handled by, the three provinces acting together, tout that ea-ch must act for itself. The immediate development of the meeting was, however, that at the next annual meeting of the Manitoba Grain (Growers' association, official announcement wa.s made toy a representative of the government that a system of government elevators would be Instituted at an early date by that province. At the Saskatchewan convention an oficial statement was made on behalf of the government that a commission -would be appointed to look Into the matter, while in Alberta it was stated that as soon as a satis-factoiy pla-n was submitted by the farmers, the government would accept it. In the 'working out of these various scTiemes, so far as the Manitoba one was concerned, it was found that government ownership and operation of the elevators was an absolute failure, largely due to the fact that the recommendations made by the farmers for the appointment of an independent commission, and the taking over of ail the evelators was not accepted. In Saskatchewan the commission appointed reported in favor of the organization of a line of elevators on a mor'e or less co-operative basis, in-clmling the orgamixatlon of locals at different points where elevators 'were required, the farmers subscribing 15 per cent. of. the cost of the elevator, tho government advancing 85 per cent., to be repaid with interest out of the (profits of the company during a period of twenty years, the government :being secured by finst mortgage against the elevators and personal property of the company until the loan'was repaid. This report was accented by the farmers and the gov-"rnTient, the final act being accepted by the legislature in March, 1911, eince which per'od in all our deliberations on the elevator nuestion, the Saskatchewan act has been accepted 33 the mode! on ''hlch the Alberta sygtem should be baped: Polnta Needed Clearing It will be remembered that In the reroort of the Elevator -committee accepted by the last convention, and in rhe dlscuaslon which took place on that report, It was pointed out that '.�here were a numiber of points In the Saskatchewan plam which were not allogetber clear, and which, attter careful consideration, your committee had decided were far from satisfactory from the point of view of the farmers, and recommended that wtioever had dhargo of tlie drafting of the Alberta act would be instructed to eliminate these weak points, and provide lor Alberta a eyatera in which the absolute control and management was in the hnnds of the farmers themselves, 'with every possible chance of Intereforonce from any other source eliminated. Your committee acted on these recommendations, and tho present act, incorporating the Alberta Farmers' CoHOpprativo Elevator Comiiany la based entirely on tho Saskatchewan act, tho only mntorini difference being in the financing of tho elovntors, where as had already been discovered, lay the chief weakness of the Saskatchewan system. In Alberta it was felt that we nuLst provide the" means for rnlsing sufficient funds at each point where nn elevator 'was built to �Inanco tho purchasing ot grain at that .nolnt from our own rosoiircos, and at the same time provide tor other business than tlie handling of grain at that point. It was also necessary to provide against tho powerful opposition of the elevator combine, which woukl most certainly have to be faced. It was, therefore, essential that in drafting tho Alberta act that the financial end of the business bo guanlod very carefully, and every possible means taken to provide against any possibility ot the company being hold un for lack of funds. Your committee believe that tho report of the 'work of tho company, and the experience the company has been through up to date, more than iustify the precautions which were t-.ikon to ensure the absolute stability of the comnnny, and its absolute inde-nendence from all outside Interference. Your committee do not feel that it would be proper iu this report to make any defence of the criticisms wTiich have been levelled at them, as doubtless ample opiportunity will he given tliem before the close of tlio convention, but in connection with the Grain Crowers' ComTinny, we wish respectfully to point out that on every ocptFlon which this matter has been referred to during tlie last two years, the recommendations of the board of directors and the annual conventions have been that negotiations should be entered Into for the handling of the business of the company, and that the Grain Growers' Gmin Company has always been sne-elfically mentioned as being nreferable to any other. In closing this report, your committee wish to re-affirm the attitude 'which thev have mnintaine. BUOKINGHAJI. Reports Optimistic in Strain ANOTHER DEATH IN THE PRIZE RING Santa Rosa, Cal., Jan. 19.-Phil Shindler, known as "Sailor" Sharkey, a Santa Rosa pugilist, who was Friday night knocked out by Chas. Kir-by, of Canada, a middleweight, died tonight. It is believed his neck was broken. Klrby struck iiira an overhand cross to the base of the brain as he was reeling from a right uppercut to the jaw. Spectators and referee called it a clean light. Klrby Is in jail. Sergeant Harper and Constable Stevenson arrived at Lake Saskatoon with the prisoner, Hunting, who with an abducted girl, built a shack 135 miles north of Lake Saskatoon. Harper took the prisoner and travelled for thirty days, using eight horses. Two horses died, the others played out. He was away three months.

When one con  sidcrs that owing to lack of funds early in tlic, it was necessary to cut organization work to a minimum, and thai this groat growth was entirely voluntary and due to local induence, tlic above figures arc sucli as wo may well bo proud of. Another point worth noting perhaps, is tlial the demands for .'iiip-plics luivo increased no less than l.'in per cent. Whatever the signilicancc ot tliPSP liguros, those in close toucli with the central olTice cannot fail to appreciate the fact that our members arc at last beginning to take themselves seriously." The serrotary is oppo.sed to tlio constituency idea insofar as it relates to organization work, and suggested the division of the province iu-Ui ten sections, as nearly equal in r-en as poKsiblfi for a systematic organization campaign, with a competent organi-/,er in charge of each. That tho U. V. A. is being recognized all over the world a.s an iiu-portanl body to ho reckoned with in connr-ction with national life ami prosperity, is readily comprnlieniled by tlie secretary's closing remarks which ga\c data proving the statement. CO-OPERATION The difTicult task of dealing witli this tromcndouH question of the day, on which so many volumes have already been written, was cfTicicnlly handled by the committee on co-operation. They urged�that the organization of such societies for the selling of farm produce was imperative at the present time, recommending tho adoption of tlio resolution already passed by tho Manitoba Grain Growers. COUN^CIL OF -VGRICULTUUF. The report of the Alberta section of tho Canadian council of agriculturo is very significant at this time. Tho council was given very little satisfaction at the hands of tlie government at Ottawa as will readi'y bo seen by the following extract from the report, which was read hy I\fr. Cars-well of Red Deer. The manufacturers' association adroitly avoided a meeting with the fanners. "The reception of your representatives by Mr. Borden , and his cabinet was very courteous and careful attention was given to their representations. On the tariff and preference questioriS, your committee f'^el that very little will be done at the present time in the direction asked for. On sample markets, your committee were told that the matter had been postponed indefinitely. We worn told that the required amendment to the Canada Grain Act in regard to the turning over of the inspection ot weights and scales in line elevators to the Board and Grain Commissioners would be passed at the next session of Parliament. Our resolutions on tlie removal 06 the duty on wlieat ami wheat products between Canad-.i and the States were encouragingly received and your committee arc in hopes that the removal of the duty will shortly become an accomplished fact. "In the matter ot arranging a meeting with the Canadian Manufacturers' association, we regret that negotiations fell through, the Can.a-dian Manu�acturers' association finding it impossible to fix suitable dates, while our delegates were in the East. Your committee are in hopes that the meeting may yet be arranged. GOVERNME.N'T READY TO AID The legislative committee reported that the provincial government has received all of the association's requests for protective legislation with the greatest concern, indicating tho readiness of the government to aid the faxmers. The many matters brought to tlie attention ot the governments of the province and the Dominion were covered very thoroughly hy the report of the board of directors. Tlie report includes the following reinarlss : The resolution from Stcttlcr Union was citectively brought before tho Government and received special attention from them. The resolution re Columbia river route for the western shipment ot grain was forwarded to the Dominion government also the board of railway commissioners and is further dealt with in the report 0! the board 61 directors. The resolutions re Consolidated schools were courteously received and acted upon hy the Provincial government. The resolution rc contracts fbr telephone poles was acknowledged, but your committee h-is not yet heard whether any action will be taken thereon. The resolution as to roads and bridges in extreme Southern .Mberta, � received careful consideration from the government and your comraittoo are led to believe that a considerable number of improvements wore made as a result. Tho resolutions aflecting the tariff and other matters were submitt�
