Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LE7HBRIDGE DAILY HERALD, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1909. SPORTS AND AMUSEMENTS Judges Give Race To Knowlton (Special News Service, The Herald.) Frank, Alta.. Nov. mix-up over the Thanksgiving Day Marathon j race at Coleman, arising from the j fact that J.

As has been previously stated, the other entrants in the race protested Knowlton on the ground'of profession alism before the race run, but the Indian ran and won from Andrew had become professional since Sep- tember, J.908, the judges have render- ed a decision giving Knowlton the race and Miller second. Bels.-the paying of which was ordered held in i abeyance in the meantime, will be paid in accordance with this decision.

ECKSTORM Ri-ceiiily chosen president of Western Canada Baseball. League for 1910.. His knowltrvlgti of the ganif and high regard for the square deal fits him admirably for tht hv-ad of this or-, saniaztion. fjt STORY OF CANADIAN BOAT BUSTED >ssiol one >f his own clubs, the Royal Ulster or Royal Irish Yacht Club, and not to favor some Canadian club. Besides, the deed of gift requires that the challenger must be built in the coun- try .from which the challenge is is- x Reason Why If a Canadian built boat should win: the cup the next races would have to be sailed in Canadian wa- ters. The whole thing was imprac- ticable. For th? same reasons the boat could not be built in the United States. If the Racing Committee of the :Kew York Yacht Club agrees with Sir Thomas Lipton's ideas the race can be .arranged immediately, this he hopes, for. Sir Thomas simply asks for fair treatment. Have Race Anyway "For the sake of .international sport. I lose, let's have a race. It is now six years the last international race, .and in 'this long period there been opportun- ity for any other cfmntry to come along and challenge" for the famous trophy. No other country- has come along. I want for the snke-of the sport to the arena.; and make one-more bid for the blue ribbon of the ocean." Bids For the Big Fight 1 Chicago, Nov. G-leason, pre sident of the San Francisco baseball club, in the Pacific Coast league, and a man -widely kaOwn in the world, passed through Chicago yester J route to .New York, he goes to land the Jef-j fries-Johnson heavyweight champion- ship battle. Although Gleason remained in Chi- cago but a few hours, he announced j that he is prepared to outbid his San j Francisco rival. James W. Coffroth, for the fight. He further announced that he is prepared to erect an arena j just on the outskirts of San Francis- co in which to stage the contest with I s seating capacity of persons. "According to the articles of agree- ment for the said Gleason. "the men will fight 45 or more rounds. The laws of San Francisco permit only twenty-five round bouts, but it will be necessary to stage the battle outside the country. There- fore I have planned to build an arena at Ocean V-iew, which is only a 35- minute street car ride from 'Frisco. I have the tacking to carry out the proposition, and will surely lead Mr. Coffroth a merry chase to secure the contest. i SPOKANE SPORTS I WANT BIG FIGHT Spokane, Wash., Nov. Bill- iard, (Wash.) Athletic Association, through its president, Jesse J. Jones yesterday sent a telegram to Sam Bcrger, manager of James J. Jeffries offering, to post if he hold, the Jeffries-Johnson fight here.
