Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 20, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta iBRIDGE HERALD HINTING co., LTD. O. to. AUSTIN, Editor aid Mtiafer. W. JORDAN, Sift, of Job Dttartmnt -Si f.TheWorMof Spcrt J p: SUBSCRIPTION: In A.dvano�3  1.00 � year Othtrwlaa �a!oo a year J? ADVERTISING: �>�r Month  91.00 Per Inch i. K OUR POINT IF VIEW Medicine Hut may be a city of Alberta for twenty-four hours of the day in tne opinion of lis citiiens who stay at homo. But to tho person outsMe it is a city only half the time. M eight o'clock every night the C.P.R. telegraph office closes and | 1 the Qns City ia cut off from the rest of the world until eight o'clock in the morning. This condition of affairs is a hardship lo the press'pur-ttcularly. All press reports (or morn ing papers must bo sent before eight o'clock. , In this city, it is Unpos -flible � to get the baseball reports until the next dify Lethbridge has nn all-night ser  vlco. So hos Calgnry. Deer nod Edmonton. Medicine Hat Is n decidedly city in most respeclw but the C.I'.Il. alluws it that prlv -liege from an outside standpoint for only half the time. The result is thut no business over the wires can be done with the citlsena of the lint by people outside, and no news of the city can reach the outside world. It to up to the people of the Hat to raise a protest against such treat by on Saturday developed into one of the most exi-ltlng si rug -gles of the season. Calgary started ofl for a runaway, getting n the ninth, t'ulgnry got a move on in the loth nwl batted In two runs, wlillo the locals were blanked inthelr turn, ileaving the score 9-7. The series between the lenders and the tall-cndors was a revelation to all concerned. With the invincible Works on the slab, the Mad Hatters stacked up big against n supposed easy mark. But the boys pounded tho leather all over the lot. getting I ten hits for six runs, while the lead-.945'�rs were picking out five hits which 9�il| netted three runs. The feature of satisfy tho management. .290 .221 .212 Mntuigor Morrison made a mistake in leaving the box. He Is the best general rind the hardest pitcher to hit on the team. If he had stayed In, not oioro than two runs' would have come in. But It's easy to talk after It Is all ovor. Klpport Is a good emergency man, but it is n hard proposition for a man to come in from left field to relieve n situ.i. lion ami do it every time. if the change of pitchers had been effective. It would have bstn i> great stroke of' generalship on Morrison's part to hav�. tiuidc the change. Mackin Is u little hero. He Is il-wnys mixed up In the run getting and the crowd feels comfortable if a fielding chance comes his way. He Is Johnny on the sp^ all tho tlni". And can't ho steal bases'? Well, 1 guess. The Lethbridge funs are learning how to root. The 4imn to hel|> tho player Is he does It, not after. | The after applause is mere upprecia-! tion. I Throe straight at the I tit and the j two teams will cidkangv plao.-s Here's to it. An oven break on the tour will �MM ��  Great Opportunities The Calgary phpers say that Hon. W. H. Cashing'* remarks at the Normal School cornerstone laying n dicute that the University site question is yet unsettled. The Red Dser papers say that John T. Moore, M P.P. declares that the selection a the �Ke wilji be settled by the Legislature next session. The Edmont in Bulletin announces that the Govern -mailt has purchased 2S8 acres of tits Simpson estate at Strathcona *i.r $150,000. Who knows'? "Lcthbridga Taxpayer" has another hallucination. He quotes e.xten -sively from the Herald of last week but gives credit to "Mr. Simmons organ." This is new� to.the 1 Torsi which is tho organ of nu Individual but voices the sentiments of the I public. "Lethbrldge Taxpayer" can easily assure himself that ha is not representing the sentiments of the taxpayers of Lethbridge In his senseless and misleading attack on Mr. Simmons or in his evident endeavor to introduce party politics into the Board of Trade matters. Poor Calgary seems to have n hard time trying in he a host The robes of ci.tyhood do not m�m to hang well on th.-ir shoulders ami it seems hard to oct the part. Prince Fushimi was received in state by the ' R.N.W.M.I'. The Mayor and Council claim that they were left out nlto -gether in tho matter. Receptions to Earls. Princes and all that are evidently not in Calgary's line. Medicine tint............................918 the g.tmc was the pitching of Kipper! who came in from left fieldwhen the visitors were beginning to solve the problems handed out by Schurch. Not satisfied with humbling the mighty once, the followers of Mor  rlson did It again on Tuesday evening by the roost decisive score of 13 to 5. There was great Joy in the hearts of the fans. Ifollis, the fnr-fnmrd southpaw vvns batted out of tho box and Pennington, who relieved got ofl no better as the same old Immhardmrnt was kept up until no less than 16 large Juicy hits woro taken by the unsatiable Miners. Kip-pert picket out three singles ami a double in five times up. Itogcrs and Kogarly were satisfWI with three each. Schurch whs on the firing line and enjoyed a sweet revenge. HAT TAKES THE LAST.

And th�\v had it. It like a sure thing with the score 3-I ut the end of the sixth. But then the seventh en mo, that awful seventh, and before it hadgone the gam.' was irretrievably lost. And this is how it happened. ZMrlng put a clean single past second. Morrison gave Perry a pass. Benny popped u lly over Jack's head and the basos were full. 'Vtwn the said Morrison made his first mistake in generalship He retired from the box and put Kippert in. llulli.s reached first on a j sacrifice hit. llumilton smote tho ball, amain for a smashing thrvc-bng-ger and all that tlio miners had worked for vanished. 3,runs were in. West hit scoring Hamilton, Totman picked out one, Hopkins walked anJ then Harris plunked a double over Nunzie's head for two mere. It was a terrible siege.
