It is expected that he will re. n to Montreal today when action y be forthcoming. Mr. Calder axed the Ottawas, following the ne at Montreal on December 28, t a repetition of the rough play Cleghorn would result in Spra- rs suspension. The Ottawas, as nted out In their letter to Mr. Ider. accepted this assurance in fed faith, and now that Cleghorn a disgraced himself and the league Bin. they put It up to the presl- fit to carry out bis promise. Considerable comment followed ditesday s game, due to the fact t the police did not arrest Cleg- n. Sereeants Hardon and Ma rie were present with a number of hstablea. but their task was made fftcult by reason of the fact that aru, uenneny ana NigUDor all reed to lay charges against the sterous Canadien player.

Que. r Mr. Calder: - following the Ottawa-Cahadien me at Montreal on December 28, we w your attention to the dissrace- tactics or player sprague uieg-i, of the Canadiens. On that oc- ton. you will recall. Cletrhorn In- ed George Boucher and Clint Bene-t severely and made deliberate at- rupts to cripple other members of uttawa team. - xou were present the match in euestfon- and after eiving the report of - Referee per smeaion you notified us that you had gone Into the situation thoroughly with Manager Dandurand, of the Canadiens, and with Cleghorn nimseii. xou gave our duo the aS' surance that there would not be re netition of the rowdyism on Clee. horn's part; plus the understanding that If Cleghorn again violated the rules of the N H.U In such a way he would be permanently barred. This we accepted In good faith. Unfortunately, we must report that mere nas Deen a repetition oy Uleg-horn the most brutal exhibition evet witnessed on ice in Ottawa. In the Canadien Ottawa game here last night. Cleghorn slashed Frank Nighbor over the left arm In the first period, inflicting Injuries which resulted in his retirement for the Balance or the match. Nisrhbor Is In the Protestant General hospital for examinations touay ana ur. Lome Graham, our physician, fears that a small bone has been broVen, He Is out of the game indefinitely. In the second period Cleghorn smashed Capt. Eddie Gerard over the left eye. inflicting a ragged gash that required four stitches. Gerard was also obliged to retire and had to be- rushed to Dr. Graham's office ror surgical attention. His eye is swollen so much that it Is impossible to ascertain whether or not it Is seriously injured. - After abusing Referee Marsh throwing his stick on the -Ice and making a general exhibition of him- seit in tne rinai period, Cleghorn with less than a minute ' to play cross-checked Cyril Denneny into the boards and thus put him out of commission also. Denneny had to be assisted off with his nose and right eye cut. One stitch had to be drawn in his nose and three over his right eye. Referee Marsh notified us that he considered Cleghorn a detriment to the game and the spectators were worked up to such an extent over the incidents that it was necessary to provide Canadiens with police protection and to smuggle Cleghorn out tnrough one or the side doors. The police offered to place Cleg horn under arrest but could not do this as our players mould not lay assault charges against him. Our club has endeavored to foster and promote clean hockey, and our record reflects the success we have met. in this respect. Last night's Play was atrenuous. but the Canadien team ought not to be condemned be cause of the conduct of one man. Hockey at its -best is a strenuous game, and there are times when even the most gentlemanly players may lose their heads and break the rules to some extent. However, Cleghorn' attacks on Nighbor, Gerard and Denneny were so glaring and bo uncalled for that we feel you ought to act immediate ly. The remedy is in your hands. We would request, therefore. In view of Cleghorn s repeated attacks on members of the Ottawa team and his attitude toward Referee Marsh, and the necessity of keeping professional hockey up to the high standard that it has previously enjoyed, that you expel mm without delay,. Very truly yours, ' ' Ottawa Arena Hockey- Club President and Secretary. ERARD, NIGHBOR AND DENNENY WILLBE ABSENT AGAINST TIGERS peal Stars Under Physician's Care and Unable to Line Up.

William Steinmetz, of Chicago., won the international amateur outdoor skating title by garnering 20 more points In the closing events of the three days' meet here today. His total number of points was 100. Steinmets won the title,- notwithstanding the fact that he failed to finish first in a single event today. The 440 yards dash was won by Charles Gorman, of St. John, N.B., with Steinmets second, while the senior three mile event was won by Joe Moore, of New York, who has failed to score in any of the previous events. - ' Charles Jewtraw, of Lake Placid, N.Y., who was Steinmets' runner-up, with 70 points, was the victim of an accident today, although he profited by the misfortune of others yesterday. In the final heat of the 440 yards iasri. he was tripped by Bus-sell Wheeler, of Montreal, who fell at the first turn, but Jewtraw recovered his balance, and although trying to win a place, was out-distanced. Wheeler strained a ligament in one oi nis legs. - After Steinmetz had taken second place in the 440 yards, virtually assuring him of the title, he appeared to the spectators to content himself in the three-mile race only with keeping up with Jewtraw in the rear. The result was that the two leading skaters of the meet, and Roy Mc-Whirter, who won the national cham pionship at Plattsburgh last week, were lapped by Moore, former na tional title holder. It was the first time since the days of Edmund Lamy that several leading skaters were lapped aVlhe local rink. The three mile event was skated in a snowstorm, which followed a heavy rain in the morning. The junior honors for the meet went to Chicago, Edward Reed, of that city, winning the 220 yards dash, and mile events for 16-year-olds. Ernest Graves won the championship for boys of 14 years.

QUARTET OF STAR SKI JUMPERS WILL BE AT ROCKCLIFFE MEETING Pinault, Sundberg, Lockeberg and Quesnel, Along With Thirty Others, Will Tackle the Hazardous Leap in Competition for City Championship and Duke of Devonshire Sup, Saturday Afternoon. , ' The contest for the Ski Jumping Championship of Ottawa, which comes as a fitting close to the Great Carnival Week, arouses the most intense interest, and all the admirers of clean sport that is the whole population of Ottawa will hike to Kockcliffe Park on Saturday afternoon. Other equally famous contests there may have been, in distant lands and cities, but the meet for the championship of the Capital city of Canada and for the Duke of Devonshire Trophy stands second to none. The four main participants Pinault, Sundberg, Lockeberg and Quesnel are among the best ski riders in the world, and there are thirty others, all aspiring to the championship. The contest is to be held on a spot that seems to have been designed by nature for the purpose, on a hii! where Canadian ski jumping records were made on several occasions and which the great Ragnar Omtvedt. champion of Norway and of America, declared to be the equal of any in the world. Added to this are the scenic effects of Rockcliffe Park, somewhat neglected during this week ot Carnival, but which, if they were better known, would attract thousands of visitors. The Ottawa Ski Club has built a new tower for the purpose a huge structure towering high into the skies, the highest yet this side of the Rockies. At.the foot stands a trestle work, twenty feet high and fifty feet long, which the contestant must clear to land on the slope below. When standing at the top and looking down upon the frozen surface of the Ottawa river, some two hundred feet below, one wonders how any one can mus- ter sufficient courage to take this terrific slide and the gigantic leap from the take-oft. No sport requires such stout heart and such consummate skill. The slightest hesitation, the slightest deviation from the correct Inclination, and a jump that might have placed the contestant among the victors of the day. ends in disaster amidst a cloud of snow. Fortunately a tumble In a heap of snow offers no great danger, but only the trained skier know how to take a tumble harmlessly. A special feature of the meet is that the jumps wiil be far more spectacular than any that Ottawans have been accustomed to see in the past. On the average jumping hill the take-off is five or six feet high, possibly ten. but the take-oft of the present tower of the Ottawa. Ski Club stands over twenty feet above the top of the slope. This means that the ski-rider will be thrown some thirty or forty feet high in the air, about the height of the trees surrounding the jump, and from that height he will continue his glide into space, soaring like a bird, until he hits the steep slope of the landing, from which his speed will carry him almost across the Ottawa river unless he checks his journey by some scientific Telemark or Christiania. This is the kind of lumnlnsr that Ottawans will see in Rockcliffe Park on Saturday, real ski-jumping, that leaves the spectator in awe and wonder, the kind of ski-jumping that requires nerve and skill. The facilities are there and the contestants are all men from Ottawa. Saturday should be a red letter day in the ajinals of ski-jumping in Canada.

H.A. hockey situation, the Kitchener Record has the following to say: "The Toronto bosslsm of the O.H. A. should cease, and that immediately. That is the consensus of opinion among Kitchener fans after last night's disgraceful performance here. All year long there have been mur-murings here against the dealings handed out to the out of Toronto teams In the senior O. H.A. hut It was fanned into flame last night by actions of Steve Vair, the Toronto re-tcree at the Aura Lee-Kitchener game.

Walden, of Wonolancet, N.H., driving five half-bred American huskies, descended from Peary's famous dog Polaris, was the leader in points today at the close of the first day's run in the eastern international championship 120 mile dog race. Walden's team . romped over the 52 miles from Berlin to Colebrook today in 7 hours and 41 minutes, reaching this town, the end of the first stage in the race, in fine condition, strong and fit for the second leg of their trip tomorrow. In actual time a Canadian team, the six great mongrels driven by Jean Lebel. of Bersimis, Que., headed Walden's huskies, making the dis-tnce in 7 hours, 4 mins. But the Lebel dogs gave their best on the first day, according to those skilled in the Arctic sport. The team limped into Colebrook at 3.04 this afternoon, five strong, the sixth dog riding on the sled sick. On points, which include condition as well as speed. Walden has a long start on the field. Early tonight only three of the four teams entered in the dog marathon had made Coiebrook. Henri Skene, of La Loutre, Que., winner of last year's event, who left Berlin this morning with a team of five dogs, mostly Russian hounds, arrived here with four survivors, one dog having been left at Errol in poor condition. Canadian Dog Tired. Skene took hours. 38 mins. for the trip, and his team was very tired tonight. The Canadian claims that severe weather conditions encountered during tha long "mush" from Canada to enter the race, sapped his dogs' strength and weakened their feet. - Jacaues Suzanne, nf Lalre Plnei N.Y., regarded before the race a a strong contender, had not arrived here early tonight. Renorts received at Colebrook- stated that his dogs, pure Eskimo stock, found the mild weather trying, and were sick. Suzanne was freported as proceeding slowly, conserving ' the animals' sirengin. All the racers agreed that the weather conditions were as bad as could be imagined for a dog race. By noon the rain and sleet ot the morning had cleared up, but - the roads were left in a heavy condition, and the mild temperature made the going hard for the northern dogs.
