BASEBALL BOXING RACING HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING WORK STARTS ON LARGE SCALE ON Willard-Fulton to Sign Tuesday Offer $125,000 for Big Bout Chicago, Mar. 20.-Final articles of agreement for the world'* championship fight between Jets Wlll-ard and Fred Fuiton for July 4 will be signed here next Tuesday, according to an announcement made today after a conference between tha representatives of WII1-ard and Fulton at which the details of the fight were discussed. % "The terms and plans for the fight are satisfactory to me and the contract will be signed in Chi- cago next Tuesday," said Wlllard. "We expect at least three bids for the fight. At present I have no idea where the battle wiff be staged." There were present at today's meeting Willard and his manager, Col. J. O.

PITCHERS STILL A IX FOR HUGHEY \ field, especially in driving This Year No Exception-Team a Good Run Getter But Poor On Defense CBy Hugh Fullerton.) Tn military service, 6. Liable to immediate call, 3. Detroit's Tigers furnish one of the queerest problems of baseball. For year3 this team has scored from 38 j to 100* runs a season more than any ; other American club league. It aver-J ages usually between 4.5 and 5 runs5* per game, while the average American ; league club averages 4.1. It is the, greatest run manufacturing machine j in baseball and has been for many years-yet it cannot win. Ordinarily any manager of any league can get a strong defensive team but few ca*n get that extra punch and wallop that belongs to Detroit because the team' makes many runs, and as a rule, it is easier to.pitch for that kind of a team, because a pitcher can take chances, knowing that his team can make up runs even if the worst happens. Yet here is a team averaging 4.5 runs a game last year, which could not hold its opponents below an average of 4.7 runs per game, Can't Figure Pitchers. Jennings has admitted that he is not a judge of pitchers. He has had good pitchers and not achieved results from them. The team has been hit in a vital spot by the enlistment of Ehmke, who, in spite of his mediocre work last year, at least could beat Boston and who ougbt'to be much.better this season. Unless Detroit can get pitching that will reduce the average number of runs per game scored by opponents n cannot be counted as a permanent factor as, year by year, its run-making power is falling off. It probably will score 40 more runs this season than any other ciub in the league, but its punch is waning. Strong in Outfield. The team is very strong in the out- power; mediocre behind the bat, although better fortified this season than usual, and it needs some bracing on the first base side of the infield. There is a big chance that George Burns, who has proved a capable if not a great first baseman, will be in military ser-ice, and that event evidently is expected, since Dressen and EJIue are ready to grab the job, and Heilman might be brought in from the outfield. Young is not a great second baseman, but steady and reliable, and he is dangerous at bat and could be capably understudied by Bob Jones. The effort of the management, it Is evident from the dope, has been to fortify every position on the team against the possibility of the demands of the war taking away players at the critical moment. Detroit could lose one whole team and then put a respectable one on the field. The other effort has been the annual one of trying to develop winning pitchers. Jennings has decided to give his once great Harry Coveleskie a final chance to make good. He has Dauss, Erickson, Finneran, Herb Hall, Kallio, Polsen, Boland Cunningham, Carroll, Jones, and the Bills-James and Mitchell. Numerically he has plenty, hut in the light of past performances the aggregation does not look so strong. Jennings Missed Something. It would seem that Jennings lost a great opportunity during the whole-sale trading of the past winter in not swapping a lot of his excess talent, which cannot be used, for one strong pitc-her. There were several on the market. Given one strong arm who could pitch forty games and win close to thirty and the Tigers again would loom up with their annual challenge of the champions. It is a team that is very hard to dope correctly, as we will see when we reach- the figures, because of the fact that one strong winning pitcher, backed by the tremendous punch of the te?am, might change it from a second division club into a pennant runner up in a few weeks. There is not a sign among the newcomer^ of any such a development thus far, but it will pay us to watch the Tigers closely during the spring training. "Chuck" Wortman, Cub ehortstop, has been working in a Chicago haberdashery store since the close of the 191" season. lie rises to remark that Mr. Hollocher will have a real task on his hands when he tries to win the shortstop assignment.

The contract for the Cardston Creamery association was recently awarded to a Calgary firm and work is being rushed with all possible speed.

V -f I've croaked 240 men; I've done nine stretches in the '"pen"; I've "borrowed" 1,900 horses-with me, such things are matters of courses. I've frisked 915 leathers, and burgled in many climes and weathers; I've dealt in the goods that are known as green, and tapped old ladies on the bean. I shoot off pistols that aren't loaded; I oft say "gosh" when I am goaded; I eat with my knife and rock the boat, and at stealing kids' candy I fairly gloat. I've forged 14S names; I've married 21S dames; set fire to 426 houses, and rustled thousands of other folks' cowses.  I've sold gold-bricks and lightening rods, de luxe editions, and heathen gods; I've voted twelve times in a single day-such things for me are but child's play. Ananias, I take it, had nothing on me; I could have taught Nero a thing or three; Jesse James was a tender, kind-hearted man -I've wrecked more trains than his whole clan. I run over people in my auto-mo-beel -the "soush" of their bodies I like to feel, and their dying groans sound sweet, so sweet, as I speed onward down the street.

It. would not be. correct to assume that the losses by submarine will continue to decreane or that the production of merchant vessels will continue to increase at the same rate of progress as is shown in the last few quarters, although a rapid and continuous increase in the output of merchant tonnage will inevitably follow the united efforts of all engaged in merchaut shipbuilding in this country. "On the subject of losses the admiralty disclaim any desire to prophesy about so uncertain a thing as war m its submarine phase. "The results of the last year have shown the ability of our seamen to get upon! terms with the submarine menace and gradually to gain the upper hand. This result has been achieved in spite of an imperfect conduct of a new and barbarous method of warfare and of a scarcity of suitable material. Our material resources for this war are already improved and are being rapidly augmented while scientists are placing at our disposal means of offense and defense of which we have been in need. Subject to this technical device and to a warning that undue optimism is fatal, the admiralty considers that facts with regard to tonnage losses speak for themselves." ELDERLY MR.

Everyone Bear3 An Equal Share the Burden If you were to investigate the claims of those of your acquaintance who object to paying taxes you would find that in nine cases out of every ten the grievances rested on allegations of unfair assessment. The great majority of people dp not object to being taxed, so long ad they are convinced that everyone else in their class and circumstances is made to bear an equal burden. This passion for justice, is one of the chief characteristics of the Anglo-Saxon genius. H ban been the determining factor in the up-building of Britain's world empire. It has flamed forth as a torch to light, the true way at every critical period in.'the history of the 'United State.". And it is the solvent which has enabled the free peoples of the earth to present a common front to a common enemy, at this epoch-marking period in the World's history. The income war tax of the Dominion government is a logical outcome of this passion for fair play. It is based on the broad principle of ability to pay. Every unmarried person and every widow and widower without dependent children, in receipt of an income of $1,500 and over, and every other person, oh well as every money making organization in receipt of an income of $::,')0'i and over is liable to the tax. Moreover, tho tax is graduated In such a way that as the income increases above the limits set, the percentage >.o be p:iid u�e government in-creases in due proportion. in all lines of number but by the quality of its livestock." "I am very glad to say," proceeded the minister, "that the province of Alberta since the war began has made a very large increase in its livestock. In 1914 the number was 1,081,000, and the number in 1917 was calculated at 1,535,000 or an increase of very close on half a million cattle or nearly 50 per cent since the beginning of the war. That is a very satisfactory re suit, and 1 hope, and I know from the working of the cow bill last year it will be continued. By the act. we have been able to put into the hands of farmers livestock they would not have been able to obtain, but for it. "I am quite satisfied," commented the minister, "money could be loaned at a higher rate of interest in the province. I am very confident nothing can be of so much value (o the future of farming in Alberta than the getting of livestock into the hands of our farmers," he added, "ho was very pleased to find that the farmers in the southern country buying the last two years a great many first-class cattle and horses, and bringing into tlin province high class stock that would lay the foundation of successful farming for the future," The minister concluded by informing the house they had got the information from the head office of the Merchants Bank a day or two ago. They could now go alread for this year, and before the end of 1918 they would have been able* to put a million dollars worth of females into the hands of the struggling farmers, because these were the men who were the borrowers. pure Bred Bulls The department was arranging through the department of agriculture of the Dominion to secure purebred bulls.

Wholesale Murder Petrograd, March 21.- -(Mail and Empire cable-Wholesale murder is now the normal feature of Russian life. In the small town of Glukshow. in the government of Ghernigoff, 50o members of the local middle class were massacred in a single night. Details now come to hand of the latest massacres in Sinferopol and Sobasto-pol, are revealing beyond description. In Sebastopol for instance, the sailors decided to execute a general massacre in two streets inhabited by the most well-to-do people in the town. After the massacre the bodies were thrown into the sea. The widow of ono of the murdered men asked a diver to go down and bring up the body of lie:* husband. A few minutes after immersion the diver hurriedly pulled bis rope and was drawn to the surface, lie was in a state bordering on insanity and for a long time could only utter one word-"meeting." The bodies of ithe murdered men had been thrown into the sea with stones tied to their feetfand there "was a throng standing upright, swaying under the water.
