Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 11, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IrETHBRIDGB: DAmY BEBALP BEEN DEMRED 0 Foley and Ensign Won't Meet Tomorrow Night--Licen8e , i Stands in the Way The Foley-Ensigtt boxing bout billed for the Majestia tomorrow night has'beeu called oft. ,7ack Doherty, the proinoter of the affair, failed to get-thC'liccnSe of $100-lifted ofl by the license comniittee t)f the city- as he had hoped to do. with the result that he has decided not-to have the bout �staged. Jack Doherty informed the Herald ihis morning that he had reason, to believe that in view of the clean and business-like' manner in which the former bout between Foley and Ensign had'been staged by him, that the license fee would not be exacted, (or it was originally put on for the purpose of keeping out the Cheap and irresponsible class of boxers, and re-itainMrs, an element which infested the city some two to three years ago, �when -the city fathers thought a cletm-up was necessary, and straiglit-waiy they tacted on the "Indian Promoter Doherty. paid the license on the first occasion, but he can't see ,tho road clear to paying it again. iTho'licensQ fee eats into the receipts so heavily that little or no incentive Is left for htm to go to the trouble of promoting the sport. It is ridiculous to expect men-of the Foley-En-� sign, type to mix for such a trifle as is left after the ex'horbitpint fee of $100 is paid out of the receipts, and f boxers of;-tJieir class would rather fight for nothing. ; DoKerty informed the Htrald that yi;'hS;feM(j\mteredino oppcw until he met,the chairman of the license com-'ifii'ttee,�pr.-;l,overlng7 who is not al-.itpgeUiei- to;i!ayoc ol prize fighting, and stroigly in favor ^of enfotc-;;ing the!.

'I am satisfied that the 5% .'linbvyledgp/Qf ,boxing renders a man not quarrelsome, but forbearing, for - he'feels that it is glorious to possess a giant's jStrength, knowing it is ic'oFardly to use it; like a tyrant.

There will be a meeting of the license committee of the Police Department tonight to decide what is to ^be done in reference to the boxing contest staged-for tomorrow night. The committee will recommend to the council a revision of the bylaws, so that' no  misunderstanding can creep fn. ' Alderman Lovcriup; was interviewed this afternoon by ^the Herald, and lis position as regards prize-fighting is very strong. He said in part: "I never have, andj never will have any use {or>p^ize>fi^ting. At the same time. I; do notJiU-ant the public to think that I am against good, clean sport; for I am very much in favor ot it. "It the principals in tomorrow nigl^t's bout can show the council that it will be a boxing contest, and not'a light, T think that in future the license will bo removed entirely, or at least reduced ^ to $50 or even $23, But ^boxing contest does not,' in my opinion last for fifteen rounds All the .fine points of the game can be demonstrated in seven or eight rounds, and when the number exceeds eight, the match ceases to be an exhibition^ and is virtually a prizefight.  '; "And furthermore, the bylaws are written, and must be adhered to. It is not in the power of the committee to change them. We can only recommend a change to the council." i According to this ultimatum, Doherty willil have to put up the usual IIIOQ fee, : But Dr. Loverlng said that if- t^s bout proved to be a good, ^lean content, the coimcil would prqb-ibly.iretund a part of the $100, or I liminatc. the fee altogether in future, f ;the contests ;were cut down to sev-ei^ht rounds. Dr. Lovering rt to be more in favor ot wresj;-ig contests than in. boxing bouts, iut is .ready to give his support'to any lontest that savors of clean healthv . f McFarland's Ultimatuin 'i�iew York, March 10.-Packey Mc-.Farland;sald tonight 1% would not ipeat ,\Villte Ritchie for the Ugnt-iveightUitle, lield by Ritchie, If he haa it9mak6i36 pounds six hours before the fight;., "As r have said repeatedly," Mc-Farlpd:i]J?ola!red.
