Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta I LITTLE WILL MAKE TROUBLE Lacrosse Meeting Last evening about twenty plavers Under conditions that were favorable owing to the .western breezes, the gun club its weekly shoot last evening; ,-scores made were creditable to the "participants. The gold spoon and 'button were won Robson, who made the high .record of 23 out of a -possible Following are the scores: John- R. Stafford, A. Withers, Robson, 9-0; Livingstone, F. "Livingstone, Johnson, K. Kelsey Don't Be Alarmed Some peopJe are unduly alarmed over the fact that we have, a black world's heavy weight chamipon. They are setting up the cry that if John- son makes himself too .conspicuous will foe shot and killed, and this will be the end of pugilism. Well, to be truthful, there are a lot of in the world who would not resitate a second to shoot Johnson a second to shoot Johnson fries, 'but please do not class such individuals in ithe sporting fraternity. They are pure and simple, and the sooner some constable shoots those kind of cranks with a shotgun I'ull .of calf tbrains the .-better off we will ,be.

Little's friends are strong In their denunciation, of the and as soon as fche champion's former manager returns from the west startling counter-charg- es are expected. Those who defend the deposed man- ager yesterday asserted they had in- formation from reliable sources that Johnspn was the first to bring up subject of throwing the fight ap.d ask- ed Little to find how much there would be in it. It also was asserted that Johnson taken an ungrateful attitude toward the man who furnish- Jd money to bind.the match with Jef- 'ries and also on many other sipns. Little is expected back today' and should he arrive before Johnson leav- es for New York is- expected. Little's friends say the former man-a- ;er will go direct to the champion's home and either make -him retract some of the statements or else make public ithe entire-story-of'his relations with Johnson, since he took''up the reins of management shortly after the Johnson. from; Australia. .More Things Under Coyer Johnson simply his golden mile yesterday and expressed the wish that" Little ".would reach town ore, be 'left. "I" will, stand pat" on very statement I have John- on said. "Further than if Lit- le wants-to stir up-any; trouble I will make things a little'hotter than be hinks I can.

"For s sake i kept th-e .story secret coast and in Repo, I was fraid tbe "authorities might' run him ut.of town or try to prosecute him for rying to perpetrate the coup on tbe public. I firmly "crelieye the. poison which was given to my friend George Sutton was meant for me, and it was only a miracle that I did not get It in my food, I have paid him every cent I'owe him and a little more, and I am through with him forever." H The champion spent yesterday In his racing car riding around town and renewing aid acquaintances. One of tbe first things hs did was to go to a bank and deposit The rest of the money which he made out of the fight he kept to pay some ex- peases of the trip. Presents Motor Car to Mother After visiting tbe bank he rode to an automobile' concern on Michigan avenue and purchased a touring car, a present for his mother and which-will be .for her exclusive use. The car Is painted red and it had no sooner pulled'iip in front of the house than his mother and sisters piled into it and a taken over the boule- vards. In victory Johnson did not forget his friends of boyhood days. Jack yes- terday said he had sent 'to his old home, town, Galveston, Tex., to be distributed to, his old friends who are the best of circumstances. It is ..said; .he -has given away nearly an equal amount in the colored belt since his return xfrom Reno. He 'has received numerous requests for finan- cial aid .from various colored institu- tions; _. In the champion's mail yesterday al? sorts of were received. The ma- jority of them'were from fanatics, thte general; being that Jack is not a real champion and that he would not have lasted long, in the days when Fitzsimmons, Corbett, and Sharkey were in th'eir prime. Others stated they were glad Johnson Jeffries, who never was a good fighV er, while, a -lot of the letters came from the. colored women in' different country and...stated 'that, ad -named their chiidren afte'r Toronto, July Pip- er, wife of .Larry Piper, the well known Winnipeg base 4. ball player, .is dead after a month's illness..

Weak on the Stage Curious .persons continued .to gather around the champion's home to'geCa glimpse of the first man who defeated Jeffries, There was no demonstration but Jack was kept busy shaking the bands of admirers. The only definite; plan Jonnson has for the future is a week's engagement at Hammerstein's roof gar-den in New -York next week; His act will consist of three rounds of boxing, a .tune or two on his bull fid: die, and .a brief talk on the fight li> all ne will .be before the footlights twenty minutes at each performance and be will receive "-for. the' work.

Then watch the Miners cut ice in this pennant race. Oriet played here in 1907 under the name of O'Brien.

CLEVERWLLE BEAT BARONS Cleverville, July remarkable game of ball was witnessed at. Bar- ons on- the 12th. Cleverville went over to Barons and displayed'i their talent by defeating the Baron teas. 3-0. The features of the'game were the fine control that Harper displayed in the also the batting of" St. Luke, both, of Cleverville. This is a fair illustration of giving your home boys the preference. Cleverville has been in the habit of securing outside talent which did not seem to come up to the standard, and they have been losing all along. This time, however, they played their own town men, and outclassed Barons. It is to be hoped that in the future they will profit by this lesson. Stick to your own boys and clay them.
