Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETUBBIIIGI? DAILY HERALD Jtfonnity, July ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS PICKED TEAM TO INVADE WKT Baseball Successful Here This the Professional Brand Warner and Taber Willj Battle for the Brewery Trophy in -Southern Alberta has enjoyed popularity this year than for a long time, and with the clou of the season the nerves of the fans edge for more. Locally the year has success, although the borne boys did not succeed in bringing home the Brewery emblematic of toe cnampionshtp of The south. The team has put up a very fair'brand of ball, taking one same with another, and the fans.have not been disappointed in many of the Eames they attended. And just in passing it might be well to. mention that the attendance at amateur games this summer has been so good that the local club fin- ishes up the season with a few shek- els to the good. That is a distinct fain the years when Lethbrldge teoasted of a professional team. The baseball spirit has been fostered, and if Lethbridge gets another year in amateur 'ball, it will be about ripe to break into a professional league and stay: there. However, the game is not over for this year, even if the league is ended. Taber wants to play a few exhibition games hers yet, "Warner is coin- ing up to try conclusions with the Lethbridge teamrin order to test their strength against one of the teams in the northern division before stacking on the Back" for the Lethbridge People's Shield Challengers by Outsider Prince Albert, July 25, 1912. Sporting Editor, Herald; I have just returned from a trip to Winnipeg when 1 was fortunate to witness the games in the "People's Shield Com- petition." I fell 10 enthusiastic over the dean cut, clever exhibition put up by the team representing your city, that It would be unfair upon my part not to write and tell you 10. Your men are not only brilliant, heady and conscientious, but displayed a true spirit of sportsmanship In their atti- tude towards their opponents and the public in general. The citizens of Lethbridge shine In the reflected glory and I am cer- tain that a volume of advertising, almost beyond calculation, has been given your city and district. Never have I seen a belter game than the Lethbridje-Prlnce Albert contest, for while It was hard fought and dash- ina from start to finish, there was not a single untoward Incident. Such a competition dignifies the fair name of "sport." With best believe mf, A. Holmes, President, Prince Albert Football Team. Barry Had An Easy Win Marry, or England, .today London, July champion sculler won tho world's professional tltlo by denting the holder, Hit-hard Arust, of New Zealand, over the famous Putney to Mortlnke course, alter rowing his opponent to a standstill.

This was the decision of' Harry Cowan, president of the association, who also awarded the J500 forfeit to the Vancouver club. Royals Claim Game, Too In Westminster the team turned out at Queen's Park, and a solitary goal was scored to back Westminster's claim to the game that was to have been played there, according to 'the or- iginal schedule. Rev. J. S. Hender- son, of St. Andrew.'s Church" at West- minster, who has for years been a staunch upholder of the Royal city team, and an official of their club, stood behind the goal, and officially witnessed the score. half way way with a, clear lend at Barnes Bridge, which kJ Improved-to two lengths. This he gave up Just before the winning: post. Tho victory of the Englishman was received with great enthusiasm, as an Englishman has not won .the world's championship since 1S75, when J.' H. Sadler -beat R. W. Boyd, only to lose to Trlcketit, of New South Wales, in tho following year. Since then the world's -title has been held by Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, ;hut not by the Mother Country. Arust has held tho title since 190S, when he beat W. Webb, of Australia, who had captured it from O. Towns the previous year. In 1909 Arnst beat Webb, and on tho Zambesi river, in the summer of 1910, he defeated the challenger Barry, by two lengths.

The'weather for the :game was excellent and the majority of the loot- bailers in Bellevue accompanied their team over to watch the game. A high wind somewhat spoiled an otherwise first .class game, but apart from the wind the conditions .were ideal. Towards the endT'of the .first half, "Casey" Jones, a young player who has hitherto; never been given a place on.-the first distinguished him- self in a spectacular run up the field, his efforts culminating in a well placed shot Bradley amVthus gave Hillcrest the, first soal ,of the game. Bellevue immeafjuely; gave up their attacking play and played a good sound defensive game, making only an occasional dash. down the field. Their play was rewarded a few min- utes before half time when the ball was put through past Dawson and evened the score. At half'time the score remained at 1-1. Jones Again During the second with the wiEd behind them, Hillcrest adopted the method of play Bellevue had used earlier in the game, and in these rushing tactics Casey to the best advantage. Here, there and everywhere, Jones had the Bellevue defence completely demoralized and toy dint of'some fine combination'' play between Casey and Grimshaw, the Hillcrest team soon had another goal to their credit, settled down to Upon this Bellevue real 'hard playing, an indefinite suspension as a resuli of his failure to leave the fielS prompi ly, when ordered off iby Umpire Sher idan in New York on Thursday, Washington captured both games oi a double-header.

Baskette, who relieved him, ed but little better, while Cleveland got only one hit off Grcom after the fourth. St. Louis and New York divided a double-header, the Yankees winning the first game, in which errors by St. -Louis in the first two innings gave New York a lead of five runs. Two relief pitchers failed to' stop the hard hitting New Yorkers. St. Louis came back strong in the second game, and, hitting Fisher .hard, won. Detroit made five runs on four singles, a base on balls and -'two er- rors in the first' inning. After that Plank was invincible. Philadelphia tied the score in the fifth and won out when Wlllett weakened in the tenth, and they scored four .runs. Sunday Detroit S, Philadelphia i. 'Boston 4. New York 9, St. Louis 4.

The supply of stock here first three days of this- week was very light and as a result the market was very sorting on everything, in fact a shade stronger than the closing days of Jast. week. On Wednesday we sold one car of Alberta grass steers aver- aging 1277 Ibs. at 7.20. This price is very high for this season of tile year, and fully per hundred higher than a year ago. v We also sold 75 averaging 215 Ibs, at 8 cents. Today the receipts are more liberal and all grades of cattle are selling strong, quarter lower than yester- day. The bulk of the cattte on tho market today run to common ami' medium grades of-mixed butchers, no real choice cattle being on sale. With liberal receipts we look for a eongid-. erablc decline from .-present quota- tions, but expect to values remain, a lot- stronger than they were last fall. Very few stackers and feeders and no jdiange in prices. We rolther ex-- 'to-see a few more find their way to market from now on. Milters a-nd springers remain unchanged. We quote as -follows, delivered, fed Best milkers'and springers, to' common to medium and springers, f30 to J40; best -butcher, steers and heifers, fi.50 to 6.76; fair to good butcher steers and .heifers, 5.75 to (i.25; common butcher steers 5.00 to 5.25; good to' choice'butcher cowsi 6.40 to 5.76; medium cows and heifers, 4.50 .to I 5.00; common cows, 3.50 to 4.00; beat hulls. 4.25 to 4.75; medium bulls, 3.25 to 3.75; best stackers and j feeders, 4.25 to 4.75; light stockers, j 3.50 to 4.00.
