Toronto, March 26.-Taylor was not seriously injured on Saturday night and will be in his usual position tonight in the third game of the Stanley Cup series. Vancouver Should Win. Montreal. March 25.-"If the Vancouver club gets protection it has a good chance to win the world's championship series with Toronto," said Art Ross, back from Toronto today, where he refereed the Saturday night game between the champions of the east and west won by the westerners. "The Blues gave a most brutal exhibition," said the veteran player, "and unless the western club gets absolute protection from the referees, they will be all killed. Randall particularly was offensive and in addition to the numerous penalties which he served. I gave him a fine of ?15 for using foul and abusive language. Mummery was also conspicuous by rough work, his efforts being so crude and brutal that he was hooted by the Toronto fans." Ross said he was doubtful whether he would handle the next game to be played under western rules between the two clubs as he consented to act Saturday only as a personal favor for his old friend, Prank Patrick. Knowledge of the western style of play was not so essential, he declared, as having the courage to deal strictly with the Toronto players in the face of verbal attacks of a biased crowd, "i thought the Jubilee Kink fans were pretty one-sided,'' said Ross, "but they have nothing on the Toronto bunch." Frank Calder. president of the National Hockey League, says: "The match on Saturday showed that till we have uniform rules for east and west, these cup series will always be unsatisfactory. Perhaps an arrangement may be reached before President Patrick goes west again." Tonight's Officials. Manager Querrie has lodged a protest against the appointment of Irvine as one of the officials. He considers that President Patrick had no right to select him to act in Saturday's game in view of the fact that he refused to allow Adams or Crawford to play in the series and he alleges that he was tricked. As for the claim made by the visitors that the game was unduly rough, he states that the referees were largely to blame as the Blues did not indulge in illegal work until they realized that the officials were incompetent. Mr. Querrie also states that the game was mild in comparison to some contests staged in the N.H.L. this season. Marsh and Valr will handle Tuesday night's game under N.H.L. rules. Newspaper Comment. Toronto, March 25.-Following are the Toronto newspaper comments on the Stanley Cup game Saturday night: The Globe. "Judging from the exhibition of Vancouver in the second game of the Stanley Cup series, it will never be received with anything like unbounded enthusiasm here. Vancouver captured the second game of the series by six to four in a game that bristled with rough, brutal, illegal tactic:-;, and in which good hockey apparently was the last feature considered by the players of either team." The Mail and Empire describes the game as a "regular Donnybrook," and says: "The hockey fans of the city of Toronto are now revising (heir views of the Vancouver Hockey club. The need for this change of heart and retraction li'\s in the fact that on Saturday night, Vancouver defeated Toronto in the second game of the Suuloy Cup series l>y tho score of W to 4 and in doing ho tied the series with a victory and a loss each. 'The win for the coast team came as a distinct surprise to the majority, for after watching Vancouver in action in the first game they dm" not look to have a chance against To- ronto. It is therefore necessary under tho circumstances to modify the statement after the first game that the Stanley Cup would remain here. "The next game is on Tuesday night and will be played under N.H.L. rules and a royal battle is due to result. A fourth game is now necessary and It is very possible that also a fifth will be played." ^ The Nfrws. "Vancouver stock has gone up considerably by virtue of the western team's victory in the second game of the series and it is now the prevailing opinion that the cup session will go to the limit of five games." APPROVED RATE FOR THE PAIR Baseball Team Getting Lined Up Prize Fight on Easter Mondav /From Our Own Corr^sf.ondent) Vulcan, March 15.-"Shorty" Grey, the ball club organizer, has been kept very busy these last few days rounding up the various towns regarding the schedule for the coming session. LTp to date the following towns have agreed on terms: Stavely, Lomond, Champion and Vulcan. We have yet to hear from Carmangay and Lethbridge. Visiting teams can be assured of a first rate "gate" in this town, as we have some of the best sports around here that it is possible to find. Support is the easiest thing possible to secure and it can be maintained right through the season if the standard of ball playing is high class. Everybody i.= ready for those old ball park phrases that have pretty nearly become part of our lives. Two of the players of last year's splendid ball team are still with us in the town-"Shorty" Grey and "Buck" Laprj-and in these two we havo the start of a first rate club. Pr*z& Fight. We are all looking forward to Easter Monday when the famous K. O. Brennan will again give us an exhibition of his prowess. This time it is not just an exhibition of four rounds, but promises to be a 'lO-round live "go." He is matched to fight Billy Miller, the welterweight champion of Canada and also the conqueror of Andy Miller. ! This should be one of the best scraps that has ever been pulled off around Southern Alberta for some time, and through the medium of the press we extend a hearty welcome to Vulcan to all boxing enthusiasts. The Rebekahs are putting on a dance on the same night and these affairs are always of the highost^stand-ard. M. P. Butler and his famous orchestra arc supplying the music and the towns from Vulcan right down to Lethbridge (inclusive) can all vouch for the quality of this orchestra. A Fire. On Thursday morning a fire broke out at the home of R R. LommaUsch, four miles from Vulcan, and before ai;y help could be secured tho place was a mass of ruins. The wind being so strong that day, it just was a matter of a few minutes. A slight mishap which might have turned out very serious happened during the fire. A car was chartered to drive four or five of the town hoys out to render assistance, and after travelling about three miles the offside front wheel came off. Fortunately the car stayed on the ground ami nobody was hurt. Some of our young "blood" around town imagine they can go and get married and come back as though it was nothing. Roy Ferguson and Stella Mertz, two of our esteemed citizens went to Calgary on Friday last and "did the deed." The family ar-rived back on Saturday night without the happy couple. It was rumored that they would return Sunday night on the flier and it did not take long to round up tho young folks for a reception at the depot. The bridegroom is a'rather wise young man and he thought to get home before the fun started, but "nothing doing.' Me was hustled into a buggy, which was nicely decorated with flags and tin cans, closely iuiiew&l by hix i According to officiate of the Northern Navigation company, that IVe will not operate steamers on tbe Georgian Bay run this summer. wife. Tho buggy being hitched to a Mitchell ear, and then the fun started. Fortunately the town policeman did not catch them speeding or there might have been somo sad and sorrowful young folks around. The weather conditions have changed theso last few days and it is the intention of the farmers to soon get busy on the land. There have been one or two land deals lately and things generally seem I to be opening up. building is still going on and we will have quite a city here if it continues at the present rate. (Special to tho Herald) Edmonton, AHa., Mar. 25.-The rate of taxation under the supplementary revenue tax act, which is being enacted primarily to recoup the general funds of the province the $800,000 being subscribed to the Patriotic fund, of one mill in each dollar on the assessed value of rateable land in every urban unit, and at the rate of from two cents to four cents an acre in rural units was approved by the commit- j tee of the whole house at the sitting of the legislature Monday afternoon. On the motion of Hon. C. R. .Mitchell, "Rateable land," was defined to mean land, and any estate or interest thereon liable to taxation under the provisions of a municipal act, exclusive of the value of buildings or other improvements upon such land. The spread of taxation of between two and four cents an acre was again raised, and some members of the opposition thought that the spread should be from one to eight cents. Hon. George P. Smith admitted that it was rough justice but it was a much fairer plan than that under which subscriptions had been obtained for the patriotic fund to which a portion of the money would be devoted. He instanced the case? of a man who was worth $50,000, who had never subscribed a cent to the fund. In that sense the tax was better than the voluntary system. "If," said the minister, "there are any such discrepancies'as have occurred in the last two years In connection with the Patriotic fund then we will haVe nothing in defence of it." The only way to avoid serious discrepancies was to narrow down the spread of the tax, and he Instanced the case of a man whose land could only be assessed at one cent being assessed at eight cents because most of the land in the district was worth that. Premier Stewart reminded the committee that there was no equalized assessment in the provinces outside the cities. No such thing existed in rural districts. He admitted that if the tax were to be continued there would havo to lie a defined system for its collection with all the attendant expense. A Saving Clause Mrs. McKinncy said that there was one saving clause in connection with the tax, and that was that the expense of collection was much less than in the case of the land tax. That would perhaps make tho municipalities overlook other things. James Voir said that he had received correspondence from all parts nf the province objecting to the principle of direct taxation. Not Enthusiastic Mr. Mitchell ventured the opinion that when the government would not be asked for any more grants tlte rate of taxation would be reduced. Mo was not enthusiastic, he said, about the amount of revenue that would bo received from the tax, speaking from his experience of the levying of taxation. George Hoadley observed that if the tax were to be continued the government would have to devise a more equitable system of collection. He quite understood the difficulties of the government in the way of that now. An amendment was passed providing that no documents shall be allowed by any municipality in connection with { the payment of the tax. Another amendment excludes from exemption under the act of land belonging to or used by the owners of any manufacturing, industrial or other business having special exemption from taxation in any municipality. Major Ouikshanks, Returned From Front, Says Enemy Will Sacrifice Army "They are coming on with an enormous weight of men, and of course they are making gains. But they are paying the price. And if they wish to continue paying it they can advanco still further. Still I do not think there is anything to become unduly alarmed about." This was the statement made to the Herald on Sunday afternoon by iMajor Cruikshanks, M.C., a veteran of the war who has returned on two months' leave, and who is visitinp Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Bwert. Major Cruikshanks is an officer of the 54th Canadians and has seen some of the heaviest fighting through which the Canadians have gone. He was decorated by King George. "It was to be expected that the Germans would make some advance if they were witling to sacrifice to gain ground. But the further they go the harder will be their progress and that they will be stopped is beyond question. The allies have been preparing for just, such a superhuman attempt of the Huns to gain a decisive win on the west." Regarding the long range gun bombarding Paris Mr]. Cruikshanks said the military experts seemed to be in doubt about it. Certainly nothing like it had been invented up till now in this war. Amsterdam, March 25.-The Independent Socialists were the only-members of the German reichstag to vote Friday against the approval of the peace treaties with Russia and Finland. The majority Socialists abstained from voting while all the other parties voted unanimously for the treaties. After passing tho treaties, the reichstag adjourned until April 10. During the debate on the treaties reference was made to tho Armenian question. The government reported the Turkish government had assured the German government that tho Armenians would be treated considerately, that Turkish troops would be under the most strict discipline and that Turkey would not make the Armenian population responsible for the excesses of individuals. postpone it. 1 Amsterdam, March 1'5.-A number of the members of the Prussian upper house, according to the Lokal Air/.ei-ger, have decided to postpone the exclusion of Prince Lichnowsky, German ambassador in London at the heglnn- . ing of �ho war, in accordance with the ' rule by which "any member who has shown himself unworthy can be excluded by a vote of his fellow members." The newspaper adds that the proposal is sure to have an overwhelming majority.
