WANDERERS THE TEAM TO DEFEAT Percy LeSiieur Believes Montreal Ag. gregation Will Be Very Strong Ottawa, Nov. LeSueur eclares Wanderers to be the team to vatch this winter. He predicts they will he strong from goal straight out, and as they are a harmonious' outfit, will make them ali step. Ernie John- son will be a rare big noise this win- ter, at the six-man game, according to the Ottawa custodian. LeSeuer claims owner Sam Lichten- hein, of Wanderers, is not such a bad actor as he is advertised. In fact, Percy thinks Sammy is a right good fellow, and the fact that he gets on 30 well, and is spoken of so highly by his players, indicates he must be a pretty fair sort. Just like Sir Thorn- as Lipton, for he's a jolly good fellow, it were. Buchanan's RED SEAL The "Best Two Scots JAMES BUCHANAN A CO. ino on the probable successoi Stanley Ketchel. n is the concensus of expert opinion that these lads are the top-notchers In that klngless di- vision, nnd In tho east at least tha victor will ha recognized as the most legitimate claimant to tho honors. McOoorty Is coiilldcnt of success, lie says tho popular impression that Gibbons has It on him In cleverness is a hugo mistake which ho will de- monstrate lo everybody's satisfaction. Mac is also of the opinion that ho can hit much harder and that after finding -Mike with a couple of good punches the St. Paul man's skill will have van- ished entirely and .then, gcod night Gibbons. That's his side of the story. Whether he can solve Mike's es wonderful defence or not remains to be seen. Gibbons is not giving out much talk It la proposed to state a "Philadel- phia Boosters' -Club" with Al Palzer, MIko Gibbons and Eddie Mcfloorty as charter members. These hoys seem to do -well everywhere else, but the Quaker City scribes can't see them at all. Gibbons was the latest tohavo good his reputation "blasted" by the Phlla- ir to delphln, system of picking; winners. Judging from tho enormous advance sale for (he Glbbons-McGoorty match tho New York fans do not take tho verdict seriously. That n very essential .quality call- ed class Is lacking In the ranks of the "whtto hopes" was confirmed, If any doubt existed, by the 'battle be- tween youth and old ago at Buffalo last -week. "Gunboat" Smith, a young- ster weighing ISO pounds and ranked as one of the most promising of tho newer crop of heavies, met tho veter- an Jack scaling 169 pounds, and barely succeeded in earn- ing a to newsparer accounts of the meeting. Sullivan at his best was never champion mater- ial. Stanley Ketchel, a middleweight, knocked "Twin" out in twenty rounds. MARKETS LETHBHIDQE EUvator Prices I'D. 1. Northern by in this country that Qanadian players would quickly grasp tha idea of interference, in fact that It would come as second nature to them. It was likewise, and by the same token, considered that the United States players Would not be able to adapt themselves to our rules. The general public supposed that our men would give the visitors a lesson in tackling; the opposite Droved to be the case. Thus were pre- conceived ideas knocked cold and an- clent prejudices given a most unde- niably severe blast. We had labored under some very false notions concerning American football for many years, and had form- ed opinions baKed on hearsay rather mind it looks very much as though we Canucks can learn a few things from the United States concerning the game of football that might im- prove our game. It was stated by sev- eral correspondents Immediately after the engagement that the United States teams had much to learn, hut the Canadians nothing. We pride our- ilves that this is hardly typical of the general attitude of the Canadian peo. pie in most matters. There is room for improvement-in Canadian football, and it may be that the large amount of experimenting which they have Jeen doing on the other side can he of great assistance to us here In year come. Too Many Players In one detail, at least, it is the opin- on of many prominent football men lere that our neighbors have the ad- jutage. They use eleven men in- tead of fourteen. It will be a good ay for the game in this country when hey cut out two scrimmage men and the full back or flying wing. This -was shown by tho fast work the two teams pulled off In the last quarter of the big game which was played under Canadian offside interference rules. The work of the line was cjuick and snappy. The eleven men formation puts a great premium on speed, and when our unions adopt it the "cart horse" will disappear once and for ill. The dying wing is largely a de- 'ence player, and as such is used in formation plays, which tend to make [he game dangerous and uninterest-' PAGNUELO Cherries in Maraschmo Nuyens Cherry Brandy Delicious in Ices, Fruit Salads and Punches.

Could Adopt This Rule In their efforts to eliminate the dan- gerous and injuryrinfllctmg plays the United States rules committee'have put a. ban on a player receiving as- sistance from another by 'means of pulling or shoving. The man with the bail must apply his own motive power. As a large percentage of the twisted legs, broken ribs and other Injuries peculiar to the game are inflicted in the piling on which always results, and shooting forward of the player in front ol the player behind, it would 1 seem as though we might very profit- ably annex this rule. It would do away 'with a few massed plays, bu it the line were reduced to seven men, and speed accentuated, it woult improve the game from the special ora' standpoint, and make it less dan gerous for the players. Forward Pass If it Is thought that the withdrawal of the dangerous tandem bucking rule would he too great a handicap for the attacking side, would not the forward pass as In vogue in tlie States prove a spectacular and entertaining substi- :ute? It is a play which is not in the east dangerous, and which could be taken whole piece and placed in our game without embarrassment. It vould certainly tend to make our game more sensational, and give the general public more its money. Interference Players Our rule regarding offside interfer- ence on the wing line is a bit oul of date. No attempt is made to follow out the letter of the rule.. The natural result Is that the players don't know where they are at. One official lefs so and so go, another jumps on the play and penalizes the team. Two the gams, between Queon's and McGIll at Kingston a few weeks ago. They en. forced the Interference rule, and both teams and the crowd wore dlssatis- lied. Surely some definite rule can bo worded so as to give an ambiguous and clear-cut Interpretation. If we must have interference on tlie line, have it clearly limited. Game Not Perfect Canadian football Is a great game Perhaps it Is the greatest game playe. with an oval-shaped football. It de- velops great players, and is spectacu- lar and exciting. It Is nol, however, a perfect game. Reducing the number of. players to eleven and the -width of field correspondingly would sure- iy vupi-ove it. Elimination of. mass bucks would render It less dangerous and the Introduction of the forward pass might, make it more spectacular.

In (he last round lie put Thompson, down for the count oi nine twice. In the earlier rounds it was hard to choose bet.iveeu the men, as the fighting was. sdjcven, There were times when Thompson's telling straight lefts seemed to give him an advantage. Up until the tenth round it was anybody's battle. Alter that Ihe fight was al! Hyland's. LALONDE FOR MANAGER Vancouver, Noy, La- londe, Ihe lacrosse and hockey player in Canada, will manage the Canadiens of -Montreal in tile Na- tional Hockey association this season. Yesterday's Con Jones, tho local lacrosse magnate, the star la crosse and hockey player, declare tnat'ke'has come to terms with th Montreal club, and has accepted Ken nedy's terms to become playing ma-n ager. He received 42300 for the sea son. REGINA WISE NOT TO ACCEPT'THE CHALLTNOE Regina has decided on a 'wise cours, in declining to accept tile offer of the Toronto Argonauts. Rcgiua and West ern Canada appreciate the invitation of the great eastern team, but Regina certainly acted wisely in deciding not to piay the Argos under the circum- stances, when a number of their men, nciuding Captain flitter, could not nake the trip, and when the team did not have any practice for two weeks.. Had Regina sent a team lack- ing practice or a crippled team to the east It would have been badly beaten. This would have hurt the game In the west greatly. Since Reglua has been recognized by tho Argos next year's western champions can prepare for the trip, and no doubt rugby will ho greatly improved in the west by that time, and whether it is Regina or some other team that W'lns the west- ern championship the aggregatian Will no doubt be more formidable Mian this year's champs, and will thus be able to put up a stronger argu- ment. In declining to accept the offer Hitter and his men showed their us- ual good Judgment. Had they known earlier that they were to have a chance they could likely have made arrangements for the Saskatoon Phoenix. _ the local clubs" in a tan round boul tfitli Oharlii Coleman, and now the wise ones I the champion is ready for the tobog 1 gan. When Kid -Williams, the Balti- more youngster, shaded him a montii ago Coulon admitted his work was poor and offered as an excuse the long period of idleness which, he claimed, had made him rusty. But lii the Gold- man match Johnny had 'no such "alibi" to offer. His judgment of dis- tance was very bad and he boxed like a novice; he appeared to have lost stamina and hitting powers. In the opinion of local students of the game Coulou is in danger of los- ing the title to Kid Williams when the pair meet in n return engagement the middle of next month. If Bombardier 'Wells, the British champion, does not change his mind we may expect him over here to help liven things up in the heavyweight ranks within the next few weeks. Wells will be made welcome. He is one of the extremely few of the young- er big follows who knows how to put .bis hands up. With more experience mbardier might prove worth He had Al Palzer licked to a ilegcd communications.
