The city fathers are making themselves sIrons in the hearts of tho hockey and skat'ng enthusiasts of iho city with the lively interest they arc taking in promoting the great winter sports.

The city fathers are going to purchase an ice planer to ensure a glass-like finish to the ice and a hydrant will also be installed close by for flooding purposes.

With the right kind of weather the skaters of the city will be enabled to enjoy skating conditions never equalled here before. Have Hockey Separate The council was of the opinion that it would serve better to have hockey and skating apart from one another, to give full sway to both while the ice weather lasts. Anent to this proposition the city hockey league will he asked to erect a hockey rink adjoining the rink already planned.

This should prove a very acceptable proposition to the hockey league and will no doubt be favorably treated by the league. The matter of lighting is always a difficult problem, anil with (his taken off their hands the hockey fraternity will have easy sail- ing and will not be confronted with the difficulties of former years.

So claimed a copy reader on the sporting desk of a prominent paper once when told by a city editor to handle a story having to do with the shooting of one track man by another. And he was right. When a sporting man, or a man from any other walk in life, becomes entangled in meshes of tho law, he is meat for reporter who public inform ed in regard to crime and its causes. So mucii has been written about Jack Johnson and his lapses of late that to add a jot of criticism to the things that are being said would savor of turning the hose on a drowned ro- dent. But th-ere's -a sporting angle to the Johnson case and it invites dis- cussion. A Knockout It seems to the writer that Johnson lias been eliminated as thoroughly from tho pugilistic outlook, as though he had been signally defeated by some rival heavyweight. Even the rein-et that no one lias 'been found capable of beating him is expressed no more. The disgust ut hJ3 misconduct fs such that no one wants to think about him in any connection. The last straw came when Hugh c.Ir.tuoU uf Australia cabled his agent to call off negotiations with Johnson at once. The action wng so spontaneous that one can readily im- agine- how quickly feeling against tho big negro was aroused In Australia when news of his latest escapade reached thero. If the deal with Mclntoah' had gone hrough Johnson would have received so that it may bo considered 10 has been Inert that amount already, laid that in ig pretty severe iiinishment. Of COUTSf) tELUft Wilt Langford fight now so far as Australia is concerned, and .there is equallj small chance of the pair meeting in this country or'England.. The writei is inclined to however, that the tightening of around John- son so far as the jboxing outlook is concerned is not bothering Jack. Re- cent revelations concerning- his pri- vate life have a suspicion that-John- son had no" thought of re-entering the ring and that he would like nothing better than to continue in his present environment. As a Parisian Attraction Tho exposure nrttde may 'make Johnson feel like leaving the country for a if ho continues a free such being the case, he might entertain'; one of the offers placed before him some tim-e 'ago by the Paris promoters. There is a pos- sibility, of course, that' oven Paris may withdraw" Its Invitation to John- son to appear in till ring, and as a steer in a pen, for the chain disbarment will reach around; th world. The White Hopes Even with matters as they there is a good for the whit heavies to engross public attentio if they have sense enough to rise t the occasion. White hopes have bloomed tin white hopes have faded but we str have with us Al Palzer, Jim Flyn and Luther McCarthy, and a three cornered fistic-argument among these having for its purpose the settlemcn 01 the question of supremacy, shoul keep the fires of interest bumin briskly for a year at least. So far nary a one of the hopes seen to be displaying undue impatience ti at one of the others. If, can b< claimed in Palzer's case, of course if this Is done will be as completely corralled, pugilisticnlly, REGlMA WANTS A GUARANTEE OF Hitch in Rugby Final at Winnipeg Next Saturday Winnipeg, Nov. is a between the.: Winnipeg'Row- ing club and Rcgina club In nection with the proposed final Rugby game for ilie championship of Westerri Canada.
