EASTERN CANADA HOCKEY LEAGUE New Professional Hockey Circuit in East, Now Hatching, Will be Known as E. C. H. L. MONTREAL, Nov. That the new professional hockey circuit now hatching will be called the Eustern Canada Hockey League, and will be a four - club affair, Is about the only news forthcoming today concerning the tangled pro. situation. Ottawa, Canadiens and Wanderers are certain to be members of the new series, and Toronto may be tho fourth club. If Quebec gets a franchise in the new league the ancient capital club is expected not to operate, and the franchise will be turned over to the Toronto Arena Company, who are mostly Montreal men, and who will control the Toronto Hockey Club. While, for the mere sake of making the thing look decent, the local magnates disclaim knowledge of the new league, these are the facts. The crux of the situation is Quebec. If Quebec comes in Toronto will be out. If Quebec retires, Toronto with a team backed by the arena company, will get a franchise. That, in a nutshell, is the situation, according to the best of authority. ALASKA BALL TITLE Perseverance Nino of Juneau Captures 117 Championship. SAJf FRAXCISCO, Nov. 17.

SPORT GOSSIP Here and There A HEAP OF TROUBLE FOR MINOR LKAGtLS. What will the minor leagues do and how many of them will be on the way to the trenches or In army camps ready to answer the call when the season of lilt rolls around? Already several hundred of the future greats of the grand old game have joined the colors and several hundred more are bound to be called. This naturally will thin out the ranks, but still there will be many ball players to keep the game going, for seventeen leagues have sent In their lists of rescrvedd players. True, these seventeen did not wind up the season of IS 17. In fact, but eleven of them did this, but the seventeen figure on making a start in It 18 and want the material to do it with. According to Secretary Farrell, of the National Association of Minor League Ball Teams, there is going to be a heap of troubte before the status of many players is settled. It is noted that several players are reserved by more than one club. In a few instances clubs of disbanding leagues, it is understood, paid their salaries in full, but in a majority of the cases the disbanding clubs paid up to the suspension only. Farrell says these players are free agents, and if this contention is lived up to the Taclfic Coast League and those leagues which plan starting again next season will have little trouble getting players. Ferhaps that Is a reason why the Coasters and many other leagues did not put in a draft. They knew what was coming. e a THE HARDEST HITTER BASEBALL PRODUCED. Someone started an argument recently as to the hardest hitter or the hardest hitters that baseball ever produced. The range included some fifty years and from 16,000 to 20,000 entries left plenty of room for debate. Th?y began with Pop Anson, picked up Larry Lajole and ended the 1817 list with Babe Ruth. A few veterans, still left, who had seen them all, were asked to vote. The vets put in two entries, Ed. Delehanty and Bam Crawford. It was the combined opinion of these judges that Delehanty and Crawford could hit a baseball harder than any other men up and down the roster not overlooking Anson, Lajole, Wagner, Baker, Schulte, Cravath or other home - run monarchs known to the slugging fans of the sport. Certainly the last ten years have produced no harder hitter then Sam Crawford. The Wahoo Barber had the wal lop beyond all competition. But the old birds say that Delehanty could outhit even Crawford when It settled down to a matter of force. The ver. diet was that for the 117 season Babe Ruth headed the parade with the Istlest punch. And there was also Wallp Plpp, an erratic hitter, but one blessed with terrific driving force once he connected with his complete power. LIGHTWEIGHT TSNT SO BACKWARD AFTER ALL. Outside of David who dropped Got lath, we recall no lightweight who ever aent a heavyweight into the dust. But by the way of gradual margins it Hockey League Awaiting Decision of Draft Board IJTDL. TITLEHOLDER TO COMPETE AT FRISCO SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 19. The coming of Baptiste Thomas, a full - blooded Vancouver Island Indian, as a lightweight entry In the international boxing tournament to be held here Nov. 22 and 23, Is being awaited with great interest. Thomas has won the western Canadian championship for two years, but for various reasons was unable to defend his title. The Vancouver Island Amateur Athletic Association Is sending four fast men to the International affair. Most of the Interest in thin delegation centers around Thomas, who is declared to be both a boxer nd a fighter. COMMISSION MAY HANDLE RACING Chris Fitzgerald is Suggested as the Man to Head This AffairIs Gaining Favor. LONDON, Ont., Nov. 19. The plan to resume thoroughbred horse racing In Canada next year, restricting each Canadian track to only one meeting, with a government commission to control the whole situation, is said to be gaining in lavor with the military authorities at Ottawa. Mr. Christopher J. Fitzgerald, form erly of London and now of New York, the noted authority on racing and at the present time the most sought racing official in the United States, would be just the man whom the Canadian government could entrust the running ft next year's racing circuit un der the patriotic scheme. Mr. Chris. Fitzgerald has done more to clean out the objectionable element throughout America than any other single individual, and the breeding and racing of thoroughbreds in Canada could have no better foundation laid than to place him at the head of a government commission to control racing in Canada during the war time. There are many patrons of racing In Canada who would like to see the race tracks and racing placed under the control of the Canadian government, and to adopt such a measure in war time would be the proper step towards that end. Patrons would soon prefer racing under such conditions that they would ask to have it stay in their hands after the war. Canada is the only country interested in the world war in which breeding of the thoroughbred is not being encouraged. Racing was revived with the permission of the governments of France and England this year and even Germany and Austria have their race meetings, despite the fact that the war is closer to their doors than it is here.

The South Africans beat the Canadians at rugby by 6 to 0. Rugby is not played in Canada, and the soldiers of the Dominion were doubtless unfamiliar with the game as played in the Old Country. Canadian football is not rugby, but an evolution of that game, as is also American football . A copy of tbe London fcportsman just to hand described a game of rugby between Canadians and Englishmen In which it Is said the colonials tackled hard and brilliantly. but their untamlliarity with the game resulted in their being badly beaten. WALTHOUR IS BACK Well Known Bicycle Racer Returns to the States. NEW YORK. Nor. 19. Bobby Walthour, the Dixie Flyer, who has raced in Europe all summer, returned to this city yesterday from Havre, France, aboard an American liner.

In a hurry to leave the city for a visit to some friends, Walthour stopped long enough to Inform reporters that bicycle racing is still popular in France, despite the war. Walthour gave his services gratis to many war fund races. WILLARD GETS OFFER. MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 19. Joe Hin - ton and Eddie Reddy, St. Paul fight promoters, announced here that they have offered $45,000 for a fight be tween Fred Fulton and Jess Willard, on the condition that Fulton wins over "Gunboat" Smith here next Tuesday night. WILL IANAGE TORONTO. TORONTO. Nov. 19. Charles Querrle, the famous lacrosse expert, will manage the Toronto team in the National Hockey Association this season. might be proved that a lightweight isn t so backward after all. Follow the system: Leonard knocked out Welsh; Welsh fought a draw with Fackey MdFarland; McFarland fought a draw with Mike Gibbons; Gibbons outpointed Jack Dillon; Dillon whipped Frank Moran; Moran easily remained the limit with Jess Willard. Tet between the two extreme gaps the margin of weight is nearly ISO pounds. Leonard won his title around 1IJ. Willard weighed 20 when he fought Moran. This might be used as proof that the comparative score I iivtera isn't any too sound a way of I arriving at results.

Each of these men dreamed of World Empire, but they failed. I am dreaming a dream of the German World Empire and my mailed fist shall succeed." What are YOU going to do about it? Those words written by the German Kaiser many years ago show what he has been planning all these years. He expected to make England, Prance, Russia, United States and Canada mere , Provinces of the Hun Empire. In the face of such conditions the duty of every Canadian is plain. No man of honor can have a moment's doubt as to the course he should follow. Every real Canadian is against the Kaiser and for the British Uiion Jack.
