Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta i�AGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY JIEIIALD THUI^SpAY, OCTOBER 17.19tS CONSPIRED!TO DEFRAUD Sun Francisco, Oct. 16.-Klasou ti, Williams, field-socrotary ot the NH' tluual Ddfonao I^oague o( Callfurnia, was arroated hero today by todoral ot iiclala 'on a oharge of conspiracy tc deffaud through the (.Jnitetl, Staten malls In con'nectlon with thd allogud emb'ezzliament oC f20,000 of tho organ izatlon's funds. The ii?an In the, restaut^nt regarde,they would come later in the week. Then followed an- clared themselves champions ot Al berta. Tha Hat junloft disputed the claim. Arraljgements wer,e made for, the Monarchs to come tb-Medicine "Hat to play a three-game series to settle the question, the Monarchs preferring to come here" inasmuch-as . gate-receipts in Calgary would have been totally Inadequate. Then the Monarchs flunked the series, and instead, the "Vies," bolstered up by players from other teams, came down. They, were trounced badly. To Be Five-Game Sepiea Then the Calgary Monarchs said they would play the Hatters in Calgary and offered ?50 guarantee and percentage of coUsctlon taken on the grounds (the latter amounted to less than ?15), tv;o games to be played in Medicine Hat on the following Monday and the Hatters to hand over to the Calgapy team a like amount. It was further-agreed that if the issue, was not'then decided, the fifth game would be played here the following day. This arrangement was' following the ethics of championship finals as conducted in the world's series. �* ^ _ BRETON ARROW _ COLLAR ClOB^MBBTING cut OP FBONT SHOWING A BIT OrcHAVAT BAND O-tt,Pe�bo�lyltCo..rfC�a�Jt.Lli�it>^ The locals could see a nigger in the woodpile. On the holiday the Calgarians could rakfe together their strongest team, could make the journey without night travel (on Sunday), and therefore be in the very best of shape. TIow different with the locals, who had to travel at night, secure permission from various employers to lay off work for more than a day and lose considerable ot the filthy but neccessary lucre which is of such importance in the, days ol the reign of Old Hi Cost o' Living. Offer Various Excuses. Well, the Calgary hoys- were hera on Sunday and on Monday won the second contest of the double bill, making it necessary to play a fifth game on Tuesday. Then the craw-fish stuff was put to work. Some ot the players could not be released 1 from duty. If the locals would arrange with the employers in Calgary the team would stay. The wires were kept hot last night and the necessary -arrangements with employers made. Furthermote, after handing over ?64.85 to the 'Calgarians, the locals said they would hand over the total receipts from Tuesday's game to the �visitors. The Calgary boys edged away and put in a claim that one ot their players was indisposed and the team could not do Itself justice. They probed around for.information as to whether Mier^ would pitch again, and when Informed "possibly so," It was suggested that if Chief was" "In no condition" to hurl the visitors would take a chance. It would appear that Lewis, had spent himself in his iron-man stunt and that the visitors placed no reliance in their own mound staff-rfor, be IV known, Lewis has been for a conpiderable time a regular pitcher in the senior league. .Flunk, Pure and Simple It is a case of flunk, pure and simple. Expenses had nothing to do with it. The Hatters' got $65 to go to Calgary, the Calgary team was given 51t)0 so the press stnt^) by a Calgary fan, received $65 here for Monday's games and would have received the totitl gate today. The Medicine Hat juniors are champions, taking tho honors reluctantly through the flunking ot the.boastful Monarchs. In the double header at Medicine Kat, the Hatters won the first 6 to 5. and lost the second 9 to 4. ORECRUIIBALL IN FHOI kWi Former Stars Now In Service Wfite of Great Material Behind the Lines. New York. Oct. Jo.-The war has wrought many changes in American institutions, but it is doubtful if baseball magnates in the past would have thought of looking to the army for diamond recruits. Such is the case at present, however, and it is not unlikely that after the close of hostilities many youths who have worn the khaki of Uncle Sam will change for the uniforms of the major league clubs. Reports from prominent baseball men, now serving overseas, are to the effect that" there are plenty ot young men playing the game behind the the second round, winning 4 holes, the other five being halved, gave Mackenzie, the Macleod crack, the match by 2 holes.

Mc-Leod, Lethbrldge, match, went in favor of the Pincher pliiyer, who played fine golf, and although new to the course, never was in difficulties.

Kennedy and Wilsou, Macleod, played Skeith and Duff. Lethbridge, a return foursome ot long standing, and after a very exciting tussle ended, in favor of the Macleod pair. Messrs.
