Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta ML THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOeVT EVENTS THE LETimRIDGB DAILY HERALD ,Tilly II, 11U2 FAST AND CLEVER BALI GAME WON BY LETHBRIDCE Small Score and Lots of Hitting and Spectaculalar Fielding-Threft Home Moore Kept the Hits of the Visitors, Scattered and'Scove Ended 3 to 2 WOULDN'T STAND FOR LEZIE IN THE BOX Notwithstanding the threatening Weather that prevailed last evening i 'comfortable crowd made their ap pearance at the ball park and were thVgueits ol the Pinchcr Creek and, Litibridge teams in the slickest base ball tUt that has been, seen on the diamond for many moons, and the local artists attached another scalp to belt withal. The score was 3 to i The fielding oi both teams was and the. exhibition of bos Work of the slab men 'wau something home about. The hits were just iii sufficient numbers to keep the fielders busy and the; way they gob- bled them in was a: feast for the fans. Double Play GUI in the first innings roped in a jofty hit by Oeo.. -Moore which lyrought the to its feet with a cheer. The crowd again hi the fourth was by a great spear by Gep. Moore who with one down aud Hail on, third, leaped in the air and. caught Lee's swat due for left field, a Texas leaguer, doubling Rau, who Judged the hit an impossible catch, and made for home on the strength of it. Seidenbecher There Another stellar catch ol the game was made by Seldenbeclier in the last innings, when, with Dapper on eecond, Pickett put up. a poj> which" looked all to the good for. a Texas Leaguer between centre and left. SeHenbecher, with the sound of the oH the bat, rusted tack; and ran with the tall, taking It on tbe run While going toward the outfield. It wasn't as important a catch as Geo. but was the 'best seen on the diamond for some time. The Ball Wet Ground halls were going between short and third with great regularity and were picked up slick and clean. Though on a chance each, iMoore and Seldenbecher spoiled their play by a nad throw, they might be forgiven for these offences 'because the ball was wet. Wouldn't Stand for'Lezie Josh Moore was in -the box for the locals. Lezie was on deck, ready to i'tart, hut Pincher refused to play him for good flnd ob- vious reasons.. Pineher got five sin- lies, a two-bagger and a. three-bagger Josh's delivery, but the home run was the only one tnit netted them anything. He kept the Bits well scat- tered, and fielded his position like a Trojan. To him half the victory is toe. Finned Six Jim Dapper, Pinchsr Creek's cele- brated manipulator of the alusive looked like big league stuff 'boi, and got away good, but the visitors saw .fit to. take him 'out mi the sixth and substitute Bell, .who was. holding forth in right "field, Dap- per taking his place in the garden. Bell probably had a little on Dapper though ha did not show it in the as 'Pulley and Green both sln- jled. He came hack-in the seventh mad eighth, liowever, and 'made a up, fanning six Lethbridge men toil of Hitting The hitting what the 'crowd, Mind. It made them fight tooth and nail. 'Pulley walloped but home run in the second spaam, making the first score of the game. Pincher tied the store in the fourth, arid then. Seldenbecher poled out an- other homer. Bell for Pincher in. the iMt innlnie also contributed to the rim'department with a beauty to field which permitted him to the four with ease, Lethbrldie had scored, however, In the fifth on hlti by WrlKlesworth. and doing the trick with a 'AFTCR YOU" (an the polite noieulto said) lave imoked n f ljar, we're (lire n'K no other.

Oaa'tb. .The end of the eighth saw the score with the favorites up, and Bell's homer in the ninth brought tie visitors just cue behind, And the samo took on an exceedingly hot fin- ish. Lethbridge didn't need their half of the and the game was called. Bum Bate Stealing and Pulley for Letbbrldge, and Bell for Pincher, were the heavy scatters of :the, game. Evans got a single, a double and a single; Pulley smashed put a homer and two sin- gles.. He spoiled his last single in the sixth, as did Green on a pieca of ium base-stealing. They were killed off by a mile when 'there was no occasion for their vain attempts. Bell for the eneniy got a single, a double and a home run. Ran got a three-bagger In the' fourth but was doubled, out on. drive to Geo. Moore. Speedy Game '-The speed of the game might be guaged by tie fact that it was all over by'ten minutes after eight, the first iall being thrown at seven o'clock.

Tomorrow Night Tomorow night in the parlors ot the Y.M.C.A the meeting of the canoe and swimming club aspirants takes place and there Is every reason to he- Hove that the gathering will be an enthusiastic and large one. A special attend is extended to Y.M.CA. members. .The hope of Mr. P. J Me nenl? who is fostering the ,dea, is to have a boating and swimming associate, that will eventually be in a class with those popular clubs m east Mr Mdnenly has a vision of a large and club by the la'tert edge with a dancing pavilion in connection,, which in the wirter time would be adapted for skaters on the lake. River Suitable for Motor Launches Party of Enthusiasts Anxious to Promote Alluring Form of Recreation Here The Belly River has all the appearance of being adaptable for motor ipatlng in many.places and the Country Club grounds there is a stretch of water that is admirably '.suited-for that recreatinn. This s the declaration of T. H. Haig, recently of Toronto, now a resident of Leth- bridge, who is one of a party who are enthusiastic in promoting tne scheme for a motor boat club here. Lethbridgo ,ls just awakened to Its possibilities n the matter of boating and Mr. Haig.has a vision of this river being turned nto a pleasure vesoit beyond the finest dreams of the oldest inhabitants. Motor boats are now built to such an acme of perfection as to render :hem almost beyond the dangers that characterized them when they first be- came popular a Jew years ago. Explosions are extremely rare and the sinking of a motor boat is seldom heard of now. While the Belly River waters may he hostile to the row boat and the canoe, it is reasonable to believe that the motor boat would be In its glory upon those waters and their .reacherous ways set at naught. Henderson Park lake would be excellent for motor launches, but canoes will be popular out there, and canoes and motor launches seldom get along ogetner on small bodies U water. The motor boat is a dangerous enemy o the canoe, the swell from the motor haa a tendency to make things un- pleasant and hazardous and the autlioriiieB usually put a ban upon the boats vhere eanoes have sway. Therefore the river is ,the It might bo a the best place from its peculiar and allurdng advantages. The motor boat is rather an expensive plaything, and is not a possibility with everyone, but to those who can afford a launch, especially in Lots- bridge, where recreation is limited, a happy possessor of one may exclaim with Monty Cristo, "The world Is mine." The Herald is anxious to aid in promoting tne inception of plensm-e launches on the river and anyone who is interested will confer a favor on those who are pushing the scheme, if they will address a communlcat.on to paper apropos the idea. You may have somthing new to Impart. Let us hear from you. MARKETS LETHBRIDGE MARKETS A further decline la noticeable to- day In grain-prices on (lie local mnr- kot.
