More Arrests in McCarty Death
Bums Held in $10,000 Bail.
More arrests came yesterday as a
result of Luther McCarty's death in
Calgary Saturday during his fight'
with Arthur Pelkey. Promoter Tom
my Burns, Billy McCarney, manager
of McCarty, and Referee Ed Smith
were held by the Alberta authorities,
Burns on a charge of manslaughter,
and the other two as -witnesses.
Burns' bond "was fixed at $10,000 and
that of the others at 3500 each.
Pelkey was given a preliminary
examination and entered a plea" of
not guilty. It is probable the trial
will not be held before October.
Charges were made by the authori
ties that the coroner's jury was se
lected from men favorable to Burns
and that then- verdict was biased.
Burns filed a suit for criminal libel
against a Calgary minister who de
clared from his pulpit that the affair
was murder.
A physician, acting for the defense,
declared he believed McCarty's death
was due to a blow recetvedln a form
er fight and that the slightest injury
would have caused death.
Smith and McCarney left Calgary
today with McCarty's body forPiqua,

pion's parents. McCarty's wife, who
was peeling potatoes in a' saloon res

This is fine weather. Tomorrow we't

these statements, because of the un-:
certainty of both combinations, but
we have the dope to back up the
statements at the presenttime.
Not that we want to back them up. t

the coin.
The article of ball put up by Evei
men yesterday was good enough, to
beat any team in the National
League. They were weak at the bat,
but fielded, superbly. Al BridweH and
Heinle Zim deserve special mention.
Bridwell handled six, chances at his
stand, and one of them was a spark
ling one-handed pick-up of a-ball that
bounded badly. He covered an acre
or so of ground during the aftenoon.
Zim has never been heralded as &
world-beaiec at fielding his position,
