Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 28, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta ?TEE LETHBRIDM DAIJ^Y HERALD BASEBALL MAGNATES DID BUSINESS HERE Sam Savage and Frank Grey Met Local Promoters and Plans Were Formulated Which Auger Exceedingly Fine lor in Lethbridge This Year "We're ready to listen to you," was toe slogan of the delegates from Calgary and Edmonton baseball circles Who are on a crusade through Alberta \ and Saskatchewan lining up clubs for a new Western Canada league circuit, Sam Savage and Frank Grey, the well-known baseball moguls of Calgary and Edmonton were here yesterday and met the prime movers 'here in professional baseball last evening at the Dallas hotel. Messrs. Savage and Grey, well load-ed with the bitter experiences of last year in baseball were most amiable and square in their ideas and their attitude was of the "after you, my dear Alfonso" kind; "let Lethbridge speak and be heard." Lethbridge did speak and the policy advocated by the local men was readily ad-opted. The Lethbridge policy was "baseball in keeping- with our means," which implies that the clubs will be run in respect to the gate receipts and a balance of the receipts struck by which the clubs in the bigger cities would not have advantage of the smaller fry* For instance, When the Calgary club plays here they will get a flat rate per game which will be proportionately smaller (in respect to the size of the cities) than that which Lethbridge will receive when tlhis club goeB to Calgary. The same principle will bold good all over the circuit This is a mutual benefit scheme which has never been tried before and it appears to be the only means by which the smaller club can hope to cope favorably with the bigger jfellow. In previous years the big fellow was willing to take al the advantage that siae would give without a thought for the little fellow. The idea of a mutual benefit plan was out of order and was not countenanced by the heavyweights Of the league that have come and gone before and such a thing was scarcely (hinted at by the lightweights. � Lethbridge Among the Small Ones Lethbridge, perforce, is one of the lightweights of the proposed circuit along with Medicine Hat end Prince Albert, the heavyweights being Calgary, Edmonton, Moose Jaw, Regina, Saskatoon. Lethbridge stood out for these concessions and the necessity was shown so carefully, "plainly and simply that the gentlemen from the north couldn't fail to see the merits of the demands. Calgary and Edmonton stood out for a more expensive team than Lethbridge. The local representatives stated that they couldn't afford it, but were willing to agree if ah arrangement could be reached whereby-bhe smaller clubs of, the jeagjpe^ jro^ be, afryyihe. afojegald.coace&aions by the bigger ones. V 9. T..Bckstorm, Tom Long, and H.. Nicholson, represented the local club ;TAe,buHin6asUkeand genial Frank Grey stated before the meeting that &^^tihbridge .would be the steppingstone to the other places to be lined up for * .:; j 1 . J^o^fvaaJiy false alarms Jiaye preyed upon the credulity of the public and Wpih" in^ytj'tuajof this fact it is not becoming that it should be shouted from tihe house,.tops�that ,Lethbridge is booked for professional baseball this year Kj^'i, without �. doubt There are numerous pit falls by the wayside. Besides the i^^.!loo^^difhaa�eB:itii�t'-a|w-':to.-be met, there are the other cities to be drummed %' Medicine Hat is almost sure to follow in the footsteps o* Lethbridge. |fesBas the gas city. Moose Jaw was fi:but.vbf the" game last year, likewise Saskatoon and it la said that they want thefgame>l>aok again in those places and wantit bad. The situatlonjn Regina exactly, but it is>safe to say .that with Saskatoon and Moose Jaw fc-^invline;. Regina can't stay -out. It is a good ball town. Prince Albert is ^ivaUve for> anything in sportdom and will be crazy to get in the league, it is said. ifPhe' ''evangelists" are optimistic >\n the � success of .their pilgrimage in ^'having; the-other cities, fall in with the agreement established here last night. iy^If^the league 1b formed as anticipated, it wilj &"e the best baseball pact �|k-;diati-Lethbridge has ever entered into from the local point of view. The local" fv'-mAgnates are confident that they have formed an agreement which will make the team self-supporting, or;close to it, a thing hardly to be credited by those experienced-in baseball matters. ENGLISH POLOIST ARRIVES New. York, Jan. 27.-Captain E. J>. MilUr, of the British army, arrived here today on the steamer Campania, to maketpreparationsi for the coming ���' of tho U itishcpolo team,, which will ||^&8'meet the Amei^cans:in a series for Klt* ,tbe^James Gordons Bennett interna , tional 9^}ip',June. . '^'Capta^^^^ H 'of AVestS^inaterfc wto;*' purchased se-v- eral ponies for the team, and who is financing the Invasion. "It would not be fair to criticize our team," said Captain- MilleT, "but I will say that it is as good if not better thanMhe one we had two. years ago. We realize we, shall have. a hard struggle with the United States team. Experience has taught us that, but if our horses and men are in good form, I think we ought to be able to lift the cup." New York, Jan. 27.-It will be Joe Jeannette and not Al Palzer whom Jack Johnson i will box in Paris . on June 24, the eve of the Grand Prix, should Johnson be permitted to leave thls: country, according to Dan McKettrick, . a prominent boxing promoter. McKettrick, Who sails today to stage a bout between Willie Lewis and Adrian Hogan, one of the latest French middleweights, said he had a signed letter from Johnson wherein, he agreed to meet "Jeannette in a twenty round bout in Paris on June 24. sHe exhibited the letter In which Johnson said the guarantee of $50,000 win, lose or draw, was satisfactory, and that he would foe ready to sail.for Paris as soon as the final arrangements had been made. McKettrick said/he had been assured by authoritative sources that Johnson would be able to make the trip to Paris'. k ; CHANCE SENDS WIRE TO MURPHY Former Cub Manager Objects to Statements Attributed to Head of West Side,Club Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 27-Because of what President Charles W. Murphy, of the Chicago Cubs, has said and written, Frank Chance, manager-elect of the New York Yankees, is wrought up, and after reading the latest article by Murphy, sent a.telegram to his former boss, as follows: ~ � -.; "I consider it beneath my dignity to answer any of your insinuations regarding myself. However, if I hear of any more interviews with you derogatory to me, I will shut you up as auickly as I did last iall. This goes." Chance says he is weaTy of, reading the Innuendoes that Murphy is heaping upon him in interviews and signed stories and Intends that ft shall cease. Chance says that if the White Sox do not care to ^retain Shortstop Joe Berger, last season with Los Angeles, Berger can find! a place with the Yankees. ! (Special to the Herald). Fernie, Jan. 27.-The first of a series of two exhibition games .which were arranged between the pelsoa Hockey team, champions oU Wost Kootenay and the Fernie aggregation, East Kootenay stars, was played tonight in the Fernie rink and resulted in a tie, 5 to 5, after an hour of as good hockey as has been seen here this winter. The ice was in good condition, considering the fact that the last two or three days have been rather mitd. An enthusiastic crowd of about four bandred witnessed the match. When the game was called by Referee James Miller, of tho P. Burns staff in this city, the following men lined up for the contest: Nelson.........Position...... Fernie Greyerbeihl.........goal ...... ... Cadden Atkins................point ......... Wallace Williams........j....cover ............ Milne Cochrane............rover ......... Gordon Bishop...............centre ......Thrasher Hacking........right wing ......McQuinn Saunders.........left wing ........Dunlo.p At the beginning of play Fernie rushed the puck into Nelson ice and in two minutes Gordon scored from centre ice, and for the next fifteen .minutes Greyerbeihl was kept as busy as continuous shots could make him. At the end of sixteen minutes Fernie had landed another goal, which brought the spectators to their feet Play now shifted to Fernie ice and a minute before the whistle sounded for the end of the period Saunders gob one past Cadden, making the score for the first period 2-� in Fernie's favor. The second round started with rush on the Fernie goal and in minute of play. Saunders had tied the score. In five more minutes Fernie raised the figures to 3 to 2 and in another minute Saunders had tied the score, ahd^again in twenty seconds by a clever piece of combination Sarun-ders slipped the rubbed past Cadden, making the score 4 to 3 in Nelson's favor. The second period saw the puck mostly in Fernie ice, and a rush on the Nelson goal in the last minute of play barely failed to tie the score again during the first two periods not a penalty was imposed by the referee. TIE THE SCORE The last period started with a rush and in two minutes Cochrane played Nelson's >fifth goal in the net: s^For the five; minutes, play shifted from! one, end 6'f-4he ice to the other and finally at the end of eight minutes McQuinn'scored Fernie's fourth goal. The excitement was now intense and the.- teams went to work with renewed--energy. In two minutes Gordon had ohpe more tied the score and the UbUnt was 5 to 5. 'this was the last goal made, although the play was fast for the remainder of the game. With one minute to play the referee put Atkins and Milne on the fence for the rest of the period. Saunders and Bishop were the stars of the visiting team; although all were in excellent trim. Wallace was suffering from frost bitten feet and was not in his usual form. Otherwise the Fernie septette put up a good game. The team was somewhat weakened by the absence of Burland, who had. his feet badly frozen in the" game with Taber a few days ago. The game was clean and the best of feeling existed between the opposing teams. They will play again tomorrow night and a record crowd?is expected. will be well worth witnessing.- Tuesday, January 28,1013.'

Work In Bauer Fight Shows He Has Much to Learn About Game BEDIENT FOR BOSTON Star Pitcher Has Accepted Terms for Coming'Season Boston, Jan. 27.-Hugh Bedient, the Red Sox pitcher, whose brilliant work wa& one of the sensations of ,the last world's series, has sent in his signed contract for next season. Bedient is the only member of the world's champions' regular pitching staff to agree to terms thus . far.. President Mc-Aleer said yesterday that the absence of the other players' contracts is causing the club officials no alarm. KENORA THISTLES MADE ST. BONIFACE LOOK EASY Winnipeg, Jan. 27.-The Kenora Thistles trimmed the S't. Boniface seven by a score of 13 to 3 before a crowd of over 3,000 people at the amphitheatre rink here tonight; Chicago, Jan. 27.-Although Jess Wiilard won an easy victory over Frank Bauer of St. Charles at Fort Wayne on Wednesday night, the big fellow failed to Impress the fistic authorities with his fighting ability. Naturally Wiilard looked good when boxing a -man forty-five pounds lighter in weight and over whom Jess had a decided advantage in height and reach. Close followers of the sport like Tom Jones and Fred Gilmore, however, asserted after the mill that Jess had a few things to leara about the. game before he tackled Luther McCarty. Wiilard displayed plenty of speed and footwork, and it was because of his dancing around the ring without being set to deliver a'blow that brought the most criticism. In \he first two rounds it looked as if JeSs was "pulling" his punches. He feinted Bayer into leads any number of tirpes, but failed to take advantage of the openings left by the St. Charles miller. Wlllard's judgment of distance! was bad at times and several times he missed Tight .uppercuts by six inches. If any of these had landed on the vital spot, Bauer certainly would have taken the count earlier in the contest. . Wiilard should have stopped his opponent earlier in the contest. It looked as if he wanted to give the fans an exhibition of his cleverness and allow Bauer to stay until he got ready to deliver the "sleep producer." When the big fellow did cut loose, he stopped bis man in clean cut fashion. By using his left hand to feint Bauer in-,to .an uncovered position Wiilard, stung him with a hard right uppe-r-out, which sent Bauer to the canvas Bag the referee refused to allow the boj{ continue after. Bauer tried, to ataiger to his feet. - After the bout it was-learned that the blow which clipped Frank under the chin cut the flesh to. such an:extent that it was necessary to have four stitches put in at a hospital.. Bauer never had a chance to win, but he showed the fans around the ringside that Wiilard. must learn a few things before he can hope to beat MoCarty or any of the other first class heavyweights. The injury to the knuckle of Will-ard's right hand will keep him idle for. about two months, according to the physician who is treating the injured member. The doctor said that no-bones had been broken after he had taken an X ray picture. The ligaments were torn and it will take them longer to knit than a fracture.. * � 2 Alberta Rod 3 Alberta Red 4 Alberta Red No. 5 Alberta Red Bran, per ton .....
