Ihe . _ _ I r\ 4 rtli unit i' it /irrtfnf ft ho n rrfn-if nvn i r\ t _ lao, It was Allison's match all tho -way. Here is the Courier-Reporter account of the fray: "Neal Allison, Waterloo lightweight, advanced another step toward tho top of his division when lie outfought Char-lio-Scully, Chicago, at the Waterloo theatre last night In one of the classiest 30-round bouts ever held here. For action and upeed shown, the contest could not have been better. Both scrappers wero anxious for victory and while this tended to raako them a bit cautious, there were few dull moments. The big crowd showed its approval by giving both men a big hand when tho final gong sounded. "Allison is given tho decision over Scully because he landed moro hard blows and forced tho fighting. With the exception of tho third round, when Scully was tho aggressor and put over several stiff punches, Allison was master of the situation. match will therefore be a great exhibition between two young and clever boys. f 1 LEAGUE 10 PLAY Toronto President Announces That There Will Be "Baseball As Usual" Toronto, March 6. - President McCaffcry of the Toronto Base ball club, announced that the International League- will be re-organized and that there will be baseball as usual this season. The signed contract of Pitcher War-hop has been received. Larry La-Joie is expected to come here for a conference before the week end. "ARROW form-fit COLLAR CLT7ETT, rEABODY & CO., Inc. Montr**! QUERRIE PEEVED Toronto, March G.-Manager Querrie of the Toronto N.H.U club, has notified President Calder that unless the dates for the play-off with the Cana-dious are changed his team will withdraw. He is not satisfied with the arrangements which requires Toronto to play tho second game at home and claims that his team should have been consulted before the dates were announced. They also accused Manager l>!enuedy of the Canadians of lack, of laith. The Lethbridge rinks chosen to defend the trophy were the Maclead and McIN'abb rinks. Macleod of the Isles (to give htm his proper title) had Nicholson to give him advice and counsel and play 3rd stone, and those wizard sweepers Duncan Duff and .Tack Reid playing second and lead. The splendid sweeping of these men elicited many comments from the spectators. It looked serious for Lethbridge .when it was found that the McNabb couldn't play, as he had to address some gathering on the Question of woman suffrage, but he arrived later to cheer his lieutenant "Johnny Kilmarnock," who skipped the rink, with Sir Colin Campbell Andrews playing third, Charlie Carbevvy and "Kitefcen-; or" played second and "The Doc" lead. The Taber boys got away with a rush mid wero about 14 up at the end of the Gtb, but chiefly due to the splendid work of Macleod's sweepers and the clover; contortionist work of Charlie Carberry, the Lethbridge rinks were three up at the end of the 13i.Ii. Coming home on the 10th end Taber I was three up, but Johnny Walker Mar-noch, by a real "Black Label" shot scored one, and Norrie .Macleod scored two, thus tying the score. Norman had a chance to 'win with his last rock, but the handle came out of it and it landed on No. 3 tee. An extra end had to be played, and it looked like a sure win for Taber when Cook scored "� points. It was now up to Cook's .side-kicker "Pat" to hold the Johnny Walker boys down, but they were going strong and won their 'game by four points. leaving Lethbridge still the holder of the Cadallac by the margin of one point. In fairness to old "Pat" it should be told that he had the hardest kind of luck with \\\%. Inst shot. With a wide open shot to draw to, just as lie went to deliver his rock, both his rubbers came off and the stone failed to get past the hog line. Afterwards when "Pat" was asked the reason for making such a bad miss, he darkly hinted thai he thought either "The Doc" or "Dick" had put glue in the hack.. If seemed quite reasonable, and "Pat'* was advised to stick to that story in any event. months and small though the community may be it certainly has given of its utmost to support tho boxing and wrestling bouts that have been so ably arranged by Mr. M. V. Hutler, the Vulcan movie king. The wrestling match which was pulled off here last week between those two well known wrestlers Walter Anderson and Taylor was certainly a most exciting one and the people were well repaid for their trouble in turning out. Walter Anderson famed the first fall in 12 minutes and repeated this 1G minutes a:ter. These two wrr-stlers have long been after one another and now as last it has been decided that Walter Anderson to be champion of these parts. Ho is a good olejtn wrestler and certainly demonstrated that he knows all the trifk.s of the trade. We heard rumors that another aspirant to the title was anxious to wrestle the winner of the Anderson-Taylor bout and after making enquiries Manager Butler succeeded in fixing up a i bout for Wednesday, March 13th, between W.-ilter Anderson and Guy San-j som. This boy Sansom must be a go-getter as he has thrown Taylor twice in an hour. He weighs about 145 pounds and is confident of throwing Anderson whose weight by the way is around -00 pounds. Quite a large bunch of Vulcnn people witnessed the ! boxing match between Ross and Bren-nan m Lethbridge, now we of Vulcan would offer through the medium of the press a most hearty invitation to this wrestling match booked for Wednesday, March 13. Come and see us and also make yourselves acquainted with the lWest little town in the west. The weather has shown signs of improving now and with it we see the automobiles. Vulcan can produce more uutos to the square inch as it were than any other town of its size. If you doubt this pay us a visit on a Saturday providing it is good weather. 10 RDS. i x Michelin More Mileage and Less ouble Atlanta, Ga., Mar. G.-Ted Lewis, i welterweight champion, and Jack Hrit-' ton of Indianapolis, former champion, fought a ten round no-docision exhibition boxing contest here tonight for the benefit of the Camp Morden Athletic Fund. Lewis fought cautiously throughout the bout but showed speed. Brltton was aggressive from the first and apparently was trying for a knock- i out. Newspaper opinion gave Lewis the third, fourth, fifth and seventh rounds, while Brltton was concede^ an edgo on Lewis in the second, eighth, ninth and tenth rounds, with the first and sixth even. The Barons Millionaires,^bowl-fng fiends extraordinary, have accepted the defi of the local pin-getters with alacrity, and the first game of the home and home series will be played at Barons next Saturday night.

(Special to the Herald) Raymond, .Mar. 6-As a side stepper Stirling wins. They had promised to come here tonight and everything was arranged for including a record crowd, when Stirling side-stepped for their own convenience and called off all games. This is "had" for Stirling and it makes it "bad" for tho locals, as the contest has been extensively advertised. Very little time Is left to circulate the notice of games postponed. Tho Knight Academy boys are very anxious to get a crack at their Stirling opponents on the local floor and play to the 1017-18 official rules. This round bout. Moha regained consciousness five minutes after receiving tho count, but collapsed again as he was leaving tho ring and was taken to a hospital. Almost any night is opon to Stirling to come to Raymond and play the return games. The junction town boys say now that they will come Monday next. (Continued from Fkont Pagx> With regard to the training of the returned men in agriculture., it -was true, said Mr. Marshall, that th�re was not a very great demand from them for such training tip to the present time, but he anticipated that a very large body of the men who came back sound In body and health after tbe war was over, would take up agriculture as an occupation. The men who had come back had not returned in condition to do very heavy work on the farm, they wanted to take up a small piece of laud out of which they could make a reasonable livelihood. There were from twelve to fifteen at one of the schools of agriculture last spring. Farrn Labor With regard to farm labour 1 the minister stated that the United States government had now consented to allow some men to come out of the western states. Central employment agencies were being established for looking after them, and he had wired Bruce Walker at Winnipeg asking if they in Alberta would have the privilege of sending agents across the border to select their help. He thought they -would be able to get over into Alberta qufte a number of men in this way. Help for Farm Women Help for the women, on the farm, said Mr. Marshall, was equally exig-ious and he repeated what he had told the women's institutes conference that help in the farm households would be well paid for. It was hoped they would have some organization to help all along the line. Big Crop Area Arrangements were also being made to get men to leave idle land which could be broken up, and prepared for cultivation by men occupying farms. He expected to have more new acres broken up this year, he said, than ever before in the history of the province in spite of the fact that there were fewer men available. Council of Production Mr. Hoadley said that if tho war i were ended now the problem of increased production would still be before them, and would be before them for years. He commented on the fact that they had no concrete scheme put before the people as a result of the conference at Ottawa and gave the instance of Germany as an illustration of the value of co-ordination. The greatest want today, said he, in Dominion and province was in not having some man or men at the head of the different departments twho could appeal directly to the people for production. Mr. Hoadley thought' the provincial government should create a council of production. On it there should be representatives of labour, agriculture, and of the government. This council would act in an'advisory capacity. It would have attached to it an exclusive staff which would administer1 affairs according to its direction in the various parts of the province. Labor, he said, was being dissipated at the present time, commenting on men leaving the farms, and coming into the cities, and declared that every man should be compelled to work If he | wanted to or not. Men In the internment camps should also be employed in cultivating the land. Labour bureaus should also be established that would I be in touch with organized labour and he insisted that the members of the house could not divest themselves of their responsibilities, and leave them at the feet of the minister. Premier Stewart, interrupting, mentioned that he had that afternoon been informed that the Hon. Charles Dunning, the representative of the food control board, would be in Edmonton on Thursday. He would no doubt desire to address the legislature and then they would have aome definite proposition before them. After that they could get* down to definite discussion of production. Mr. Hoadley, concluding, said they wanted big business men to take charge of the situation. That was what was being done in Britain. On the motion of Hon. George P. Smith, the debate was adjourned. STILL (CONTIVPBD fiiOM FHONT PaO�^* I the absolutely erroneous Impres'rton' purposely given by the British method of drawing up shipping statistics. Th� captain of a neutral merchant steam* er received by an English customa of� fleer whose tongue had been loosened by grog, In answer to his question to4 the reason of his being sent by British) officials from one port to another, and after a short time r.lwaya sent on* again, was given the reply that tfct* was done in order that the number of incoming and outgoing ships might hm Increased for the statistics. The pofc" icy of secrecy concerning the staking^ of the German submarines by BrlUahi forces. Sir Eric asserts, ia continued because it has an effect on the nemg of the German submarine commander. We reply to this that our submarine) commanders have such strong nerve* that they have been able to endurei the lies told about them by the English, without turning a hair. How much more easily will they be able to endure this English secrecy* the real reasons for which we can so well un* derstand. "A false statement which frequently occurs and one which has been often refuted by us, is that concerning the 'strikes and mutinies on board our submarines.' In conclusion the first lord criticizes the military achievements of our submarines by saying that timorousness .reluctance and gen* erally lower efficiency is evident. So far as we know our submarines are doing their work below water and are therefore beyond the observance of English critics. It is characteristic of the impertinence and arrogance of an Englishman that he should go as tar as to deceive public point on. We will abstain from further comment of this criticism, and we will allow our submarines to speak for themselves."
