Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta DAILY HERALO Sahihlay, January Taber Will go Against I, Calgary in Semi-Finals Macleod Anxious to Play MaMi GY PIEH Lethbridge Pitcher Heard Froim Married v Ye sporting editor has just received from Cy Pieh, of local baseball fame, a little intelligence of the latter's do- ings at home in Euderliu, North Dakota. Cy wants to be on the linkup of the Letibridge club next season if there is one, and says he is not look- Ing for a berth at any place else. "When I am next seen in says Cy, "1 will be accompanied by Jlra. Pieh." J.uet when he turned the trick the jovial oue doesn't say, but it m-as quite recently we have reason to believe. Cy enclosed a clipping from a Min- neapolis paper which he thought prove of interest to the fans here.- It concerns the Western Canada League and -what Patrick Flaherty thinks of it. Flaherty, it will be re- membered, wag, for a period last sum- mer, included among President Eck- piorin's diamond dictators. This is it: who played third for the Louisville club sway hacli hangs out now in the North and is at present located at Moose Jaw.

P. Veale) Tiber, Jin. to four, speak it gently, because it Is not what Macleod likes to hear. Nevertheless that is the way Taber put It over their opponents last night in what was one of the fastest games ever played in Alberts. Macleod came down in a special i-rain with a crowd of lustily JLhged supporters, fully confident of carrying off the honors. The game was started at be- fore a crowd of at least 500 and three twenty minute periods were played. The ice was in good shape and at the opening theywtather con- :-wert alL'that -'could -be 'desfr- This is Cy in Taber led off at a brisk pace, scor- ing two goals within four minutia from the start: gaining an advantage which they never lost. Macltod worked hard and succeed- ed in finding the net once after ten minutes play, but Taber put in two more in rapid succession just before the bell rang. The second period opened' in startl- ing fashion, Taber taking the puck right into the net before Macleod knew what they were doing. Mac- leod Immediately got busy and the gams waxed fast and furious, the vis- itors finding the net sec- ond period ending with a score 5 to 3 in favor, of Taber. The third period started with the wind rising, and the snow drifting, making it difficult at times the puck. The speed seemed to, be.telling .on the Macleod boys, for Taber got in .6 goals to Macleod's 1. After the "first five', the third period, Macleed hadn't a chance, Taber skating over thtm ill the time nd though neither side showed any real combination work worth speaking of, Macltod could never get Cock agsregatien. Taber set a fast pace and wore.MscIeod out. The game was reftreed by Doc Gib- son, of Calgary, President of the League, who expressed the opinien that the Taber team, with more at- tention to combination, will give any team in the Province a cteee run fer the pennant. ._._.. At present Taber is the champion for the Southern Division, whilst the Deacons of Edmonton are the leaders in the North. The Central Division games are not yet decided, chances being in favor of Calgary City and St. Mary's, with Lacombe close third. "What will .be made for playing off the finals will be I decided at the next meeting of the League. Doc Gibson congratulates the Taber boys on winning the Southern Cham- pionship the first year, and thinks they-stand a good chance of winning the pennant. old baseball days and also about some of the-stuff they "puff in the Western Canada league at times; which takes us iack'to our bush league experience. He'writes: "In your issue of Jan. 1, comment- Ing on abusive treatment to players in some of the- cities in the National league, "particularly Cincinnati and Pittsburgy I agree -with yo.u that the greatest players give way un- der ..this strain. I write from the standpoint cf personal experience, bar- ing" played third base for Louisville in 3S94. under tuc management of the late Billy Barnte. "However, I believe it remained for one. Jimmy Burke, now manager of the Indianapolis team, to discover the cor- rect remedy, whioh he dmributed in up-to-date fashion. Daring the time he xianaged and played third base for the Bt. Lbttit Cardinals he became the tar- sTet for all kinds of epithets and vile remarks. One fine day he assembled m. crowd, called the Goose Hill of Louis. He provided for. them with the necessary amount oi passes to the tjame, 40 In number. They were placed according to Burke's directions, in the Tileachers directly back of third base. Everything 'was lovely until the game :when the roasters and knock- ers -broke out wtth Burke the object their taunts and jeers. ''In the next minute the greatest bat- tle royal you ever heard of was being, waged in that bleacher. Knoc-kers and A C> roasters that could get away went 1 I Vvefy direction, oven out on tfao field, and the game was stopped until the excitement died down. There were several arrests made. In the mean- lime play 'was resumed and there -was no.more trouble that day, or any day after that. "During the remainder of Burke's regime there were no vile remarks directed at tbe third baseman. He says that the clubs in" the North are making money, having the lowest travelling expeneec, whilst 'Calgary draws the largest crowds, having the best accommodation. More clubs are expected next year, neces- sitate a re-arrangement of the-, dis- tricts, and an effort will get a Junior league going. Tiber AvGL Cook _ C.'Cook J. E..Cook A. Barbour W. H. Cook G.

Macleod Puts Forth Defiance 'The Macleod hockey special which passed through There last night 6 o'clock, was on its return stalled in Lethbridge for sev- eral hours. The Macleod players in being interviewed .upon th- re- sult of the game, hsve no excuses to offer, admitting that they were completely outcUssed by the Taber aggregation night. Whatever may have been the turn of affairs last evening, Mac- leod cannot conscientiously bring themselves.around to believe thst has a superior team, especially on covered tee and "Spud" Murphy, the mainttay of the Macleod line-up, says' authority from the backen of team to atate, that they are prepared to bet that MacSeod can beat Taber on any enclosed rink in Alberta. "Spud" tayc his statement is a serious one and may be accepted as a challenge fay Taber. Now that Macleod is shut out for the 'championship of "the i Southern District through their defeat last night, and but an- other game to play, and that with Lethbridge, their line-up is likely broken. VSpud" Murphy and Gardner, the best of the Macleod team, have received invitations to go north and play with Lacombe, of the Centra! Division and It is altogether likely that they will go. Murphy has all kinds of respect for the Taber club, buf says they will have to develop better combination and general team work if they wish to be contenders for provincial honors.
