A HISTORY OF THE O. H, A. 



The Ontario Hockey Association came into existence 
on November 27th, 1890, and the Queen's Hotel, 
Toronto, was its birthplace. 

The game had attained great popularity in Mont- 
real, Ottawa and Kingston, but had not been taken 
up by the young men of the west until the organiza- 
tion of tha Association. Hockey gradually beeam^' the 
winter sport of every city, town and hamlet of the 
province, and as the players in each locality increased, 
a team was formed, and after a period they sought 
admission to the O.H.A., and to-day the Association 
embraces in its membership clubs from every section 
of Ontario. 

YEAE OF 1890-1. 

Hon. Arthur Stanley, a son of a former Governor- 
General of Canada, was one of the founders ot the 
Association. On coming to Canada he found hockey 
was a mere baby in the field 'of sport. He was cap- 
tured by the many fine points of the game, and soon 
had a club organized at Kideau Hall, and in 1890 he 
urged the formation of an Association. J. A. Barron, 
now Judge Barron, of Stratford, was then a member 
of the House of Commons at Ottawa, and a hockey 
player as well. He talked to his friend Harry Ward, 
M. P. for East Durham, also a devotee of the new game, 
and they, with the Hon. Arthur Stanley and a few 
others, had a meeting called in xoronto. The delegates 
who responded to their call were D. Burke Simpson, 
Q.C., Bowmanville; W. Kerr, Eoyal Military College; 
J. F. Smelli^, Queen's University, Kingston; F. W. 
Jackson, St. George ^s, Toronto; W. Eobinson, Athletic 
Lacrosse ClubL Tofonto; Capt. Evans, "C" Company, 
Royal School ditiifantry, Toront^it!. Hamilton, Vic- 
toria, Toronto; jBCreen, Granites,'Toronto; J. Thomp- 
son, Osgoode. ^Lr. Barron acted as chairman and 
organization was at once proceeded with. The late

Liieut.-'Col. A. M. Cosby was chosen President, and 
later on in the season he donated a cup to the Associa- 
tion. Messrs. Barron and Ward were made Vice- 
Presidents. The tirst Secretary was C. E. Hamilton, 
of the Victorias, while C. K. Temple, of the St. 
George's, acted as Treasurer. P. i). Eoss, Ottawa; J. 
F. Smellie, Capt. Evans, J. C. Garvin, W. Hendrie, Jr., 
Hamilton; A. F. D. MacGachen, of Lindsay, and W. A. 
H. Kerr, formed the first Executive. 

The fees were placed at $2 for membership and $3 
for each team, and they remained at this figure until 
1900, when they were increased to $5. The Association 
condemned rough play in unmeasured terms, and the 
policy of 1890 has been strictly adhered to year by 
year. 

Ottawa won the championship, the final game taking 
place at the Capital, the St. George's, of Toronto, being 
the runners up. 

Morell, goal; Kerr, point; Young, cover point; 
Ross, H. Kirby, C. Kirby and Smith, forwards, com- 
posed the Ottawa team, while the St. George's placed 
on the ice, McVittiie, goal; Henderson, point; Har- 
graft, cover poiuit; Lucas, Thompson, Pemberton, Tem- 
ple and Jackson, forwards. 

Lindsay had one of the best teams in the early 
days. Judge Barron was a star forward, as was "W. J. 
Montgomery, atterwards captain of the champion 
Peterboro seven. 

YEAE OF 1891-1892. 

Gait, Stratford, Granite Colts, of Toronto; Insurance 
and Loan, of Toronto; Eoyal Military College, of 
Kingston; Queen's Own, of Toronto; Queen's Univer- 
sity, Kingston; "C" Company, Eoyal School of In- 
fantry; Osgoode Hall, Ottawa, Varsity, Victorias, of 
Toronto, and Granites, of Toronto — thirteen clubs in 
all, participated in O.H.A. games in the winter of 
1891-2. Col. Cosby was again President of the Associa- 
tion, and H. D. Warren became Vice-President, instead 
of H. A. Ward, M.P. 

Though appearing on the ice for the first season. 
Gait made a remarkable showing, and succeeded in 
reaching the seifli-finals, when the men from the west 
were beaten by the Toronto Granites, whose team was 
made up of C. G. Crawford, goal; W. E. Meharg, point; 

13 



Geo. Higinbotham, cover point; J. S. Garvin, F. Dixon. 
J. Walker, and J. Shanklin, torwards. The Gait play- 
ers were A. Jackson, goal; G. A. Ball, point; A. Cald- 
well, cover point; A. M. Gildersleeve, E. Wand, T. 
Aitken, J. Hume, forwards. Lieut. Laurie, of Stanley 
Barracks, referred the contest. 

The Granites did not qualify for the final round, 
Osgoode being victorious over them by a rather one- 
sided score, 5 to 0. The line-up of the Legalites was: 
W. A. Smith, goal; H. Mack, point; J. F. Smellie, cover 
point; E. C. Senkler, W. A. H. Kerr, F. Anderson, C. 
Swabey, forwards. Ottawa, having won in the east, 
met Osgoode in the finals, and captured the champion- 
ship for the second time, the score standing 10 goals 
to 4. The teams in this contest were: Osgoode — Smith, 
Swabey, W. A. Boyce, of Barrie, E. C. Senkler, of St 
Catharines, W. A. H. Kerr, J. F. Smellie, H. Mack. 
Ottawa — Morell, Jenkins, Young, Eussell, C Kirby, H. 
Kirby, Bradley. 

YEAR OF 1892-3. 

in the faa of 1892 the third annual meeting or the 
Association was convened in Toronto. Toronto Gran- 
ites, Osgoode Hall, Varsity, Toronto Victorias, Trinity, 
New Fort, and Bankers, all of Toronto; Queen's, Lime- 
stones and R.M.C., of Kingston; London and Gait be- 
ing represented. The Limestones of Kingston, Peter- 
boro, St. Thomas and London were admitted to membfer- 
ship. 

The growth of the Association and the marked in- 
crease in the popularity of the game warranted the 
establishment of a second series for the junior teams. 

Col. Cosby withdrew from the presidency, and he 
was succeeded by H. D. Warren, t)f the Toronto Gran- 
ites. The other oflScers for the year were: P. D. Ross, 
Ottawa, and W. A. H. Kerr, Toronto, Vice-Presidents; 
Lieut. Laurie, Stanley Barracks, Secretary; Alex. 
Creelman, Treasurer, a position he held until 1896. The 
Executive was made up of J. S. Garvin, Toronto Gran- 
ites; H. Hartshorn and J. F. Smellie, Osgoode; S. T. 
Baldwin, Stanley Barracks; W. G. Thomas, London; 
Dr. Parkyu, Queen's. 

In the Senior Series five districts were arranged 
(1) Clubs west of Toronto. (2) Toronto City Clubs. 
(3) Peterboro and vicinity. (4) Kingston. (5) Ottawa 

14 



Gait won in the west, Granites in Toronto City, Peter- 
boro in the Midland district, Queen 's in the east, and 
Ottawa in the group of clubs m the district surrounding 
the capital. Peterboro in the semi-finals lost to the 
Queen's University team by 14 goals to 2, the match 
taking place in Kingston, The teams that met in this 
contest were: 

Peterboro — T. H. Dumble, goal; Gus. Sawers, point; 
W. B. Carmichael, cover point; W. "Wonham, W. J. 
Montgomery, J. Parsons, W. Phelan, forwards. Queen's 
— Giles, goal; Guy Curtis, point; Taylor, cover point; 
Waldron, McLennan, Eayside and Weatherhead, for- 
wards. 

The Granites defeated Gait by 13 goals to 6, but 
were afterwards beaten by Queen's. 

The finals took place between the students from 
Kingston and the Ottawa seven and the hockeyists from 
the Capital again displayed their superior strength by 
retaining the championship, though they had to fight 
hard to win. The score was 6 to 4. Ottawa's team 
was almost the same that ranked as champions the year 
before. Queen's was represented by Giles, goal; Curtis, 
point; Taylor, cover point; Waldron, McLennan, Kay- 
side and Weatherhead, forwards. 

The Limestones, of Kingston, had the distinction of 
carrying off the championship in the freshly inaugur- 
ated Junior Series. They competed with Gait in 
Toronto, and won by the overwhelming score of 12 to 
1. The competing sevens were: 

Kingston Limestones — Walkem, goal: McEae, point; 
Irwin, cover point; Sutherland, Lowe, Sears and Harty, 
forwards. 

Gait — Elliott, goal; Eando, point; Cutler, cover 
point; Hall, Wilkinson, Eothwell and Davis, forwards. 

YEAR OF 1893-4. 

When the next annual meeting of the Association 
came around in November of 1893, Peterboro and St. 
Thomas dropped out of the Senior Series, and the team 
from the former place succeeded in securing the Inter- 
mediate Championship. 

H. D. Warren was again President of the Associa- 
tion, while C. A. B. Brown and W. A. H. Kerr were 
elected Vice-Presidents. Lieut. Laurie retired from 
the Secretaryship, and Dr. H. A. Parkyn, of Queen's 

' 15 ■ 



was chosen to fill the pos'tion. The Executive of 1893 
consisted of J. F. Smellie, Osgoode; J. W. Gilmour, 
Varsity; George Irving, Granites; A. McVittie, 
Victorias; M. S. McCar'.hy, Hamilton; Hugh Hart- 
shorn, Osgoode. 

Treasurer Creelman reported the receipts of the year 
1892-3 had been $145.32, and the expenses only 
amounted to $15.81. Berlin, Petrolea, St. Catharines 
and Hamilton were among the new clubs in the OJH.A. 
that season. 

St. Catharines had to play all matches away from 
home as they had not a covered rink. 

The class of hockey in that winter was remarkably 
improved, and the game won the public patronage to a 
much greater extent than in the past. Osgoode got the 
championship of the Senior Series after a lot of close 
contests between competing teams iL the semi-finals. 
Ayr defeated London by 5 goals to 4, the teams being: 

London — Belcher, goal; Brown, point; Baird, cover 
point; Johnston, R. Lind, Skey and Hobbs, forwards. 

Ayr — J. Elliott, goal; Wiley, point; Coldwell, cover 
point; Robson, Davis, Goldie and R. Elliott, forwards. 

In the next round the Ayr team had to face the 
Toronto Granites, and again succeeded in coming out in 
the lead, the score being 5 to 4. The Granites were 
represented by Irving/ goal; Dixon, point; Walker, 
cover point; Murray, Carruthers, Ewing and Dixon, for- 
wards. Though apparently having struck a winning 
pace, the team from the little town in the west, de- 
faulted to Osgoode in the match that was to decide 
the seven men to enter the finals for the Senior Cham- 
pionship. In the east Ottawa, the previous year's 
champions, resigned from the Association because they 
had been ordered to contest the final match at Toronto. 
This action on the part of the team from the Capital 
left Queen's University in the last stage of the series. 
Kingston students and Osgoode played the final match 
in Toronto, and after a stubtjornly fought battle, the 
Legalites won by 3 goals to 2, in the presence of a 
great crowd. The victors were: Alexis Martin, Past 
President of the O.H.A., goal; W. A. H. Kerr, point; 
W. A. Boys, cover point; .). F. Smellie, A. B. Cunning- 
ham (afterwards a member of the O.H.A. Executive); 
J. F. Patterson and F. Anderson, forwards. Their 
opponents were: R. Hiscock, goal; Guy Curtis, point: 

16 



f. Taylor, cover point; J. F. Kayside, S. F. Weather- 
head, D. E. McLennan and E. W. Waldron, forwards. 
Peterboro had little difficulty in capturing the 
Junior Championship. The match that decided the vic- 
tory took place on its own ici, with the Granites, of 
Toronto, and the score was 14 to in favor of the 
seven men from the east. Geo. Dixon, goal; W. J. 
Montgomery, point; J. Parson, cover point; J. Hedley, 
W. Phelan, W. Wonham and Lionel King, afterwards a 
Vice-President of the O. H. A., forwards, made up the 
Peterboro team. The Granites were represented by 
Livingstone, goal; Mc Arthur, point; Holland, cover 
point; Dixon, Carruthers, Lillie and McBrien, for- 
wards. 

YEAE OF 1894-5. 

A notice of motion to permit the puck being stopped 
by the hand was introduced at the annual meeting in 
December, 1894, but it did not win favor, and was not 
again proposed until 1900, when the rules were changed, 
and this proposal adopted. C. A. B. Brown became 
President in 1894, and he was supported by James A. 
Macfadden, Stratford, and J. W. Gilmour, V£.vsity, as 
Vice-Presidents. Fred W. Tiffin, of London, succeeded 
H. A. Parkyn as Secretary, and Alex. Creelman was re- 
tained as Treasurer The Executive was composed of 
A. F. Barr, Varsity; A. F. E. Martin, Osgoode; G. J. 
Horkins, Peterboro; J. D. McMurrich, Trinity; W. B. 
Laidlaw, London, and G.F. Macdonnell, Kingston 

The teams in the Senior Series that year were 
Queen's, Eoyal Military College and Limestones, King- 
ston; Victorias, Osgoode, Granites, Toronto Athletic 
Club and Trinity, of Toronto; Barrie, Hamilton, Ayr, 
Berlin, Guelph, London, Stratford, Sarnia, Petrolea. 
Ayr was defeated by Trinity in the semi-finals. The 
match took place at Berlin and the score was 10 to 7. 
Trinity faced Queen's in the finals, and met a rather 
ignominious defeat, the Kingston team piling up 17 
goals to the Toronto students' 3. This was the first 
occasion Queen's had won the senior honours, and there 
was great rejoicing at Kingston. Queen's team was 
made up as follows: E. Hiscock, goal; Guy Curtis, 
point; F. Taylor, cover point; McLennan, Weatherhead, 
Eayside and Cunningham, who had played with the 
Osgoods team the season before, forwards.

YEAR OF 1895-6. 

For the second time in succession Peterboro won 
the Junior Championship, their opponents again being 
the Toronto Granites, but the score, 7 to 6, evidences 
that the sevens were well matched, and that the hon- 
ours went to Peterboro after a determined Sght. The 
match took place in Toronto, and the teams were: 
Peterboro — Geo. Dixon, goal; W. J. Montgomery, point; 
Sam Adams, cover point; Walter Phelan, Lionel King, 
W. Wonham and K. Davidson, forwards. Granites — 
Livingston, goal; McArthur, point; F. Lillie, cover 
poin'-; W. Lillie, Dixon, Ewing and Johnson, forwards. 

C. A. B. Brown became President for a second term 
in 1895, and the other officers also remained as in 1894: 
A. F. Martin, Osgoode; Geo. J. Horkins, Peterboro; H. 
C. Becher, Loudon; J. Bain, Granites; H. Southam, 
Trinity; A. H. Beaton, Queen's, composed the Execu- 
tive. In his report. Treasurer Creelman presented an 
encouraging statement, showing $191.49 to be on hand 
in the treasury. 

Stratford brought distinction to itself and Western 
Ontario by reaching the. finals in the competition for 
the Senior Championship in 1896. In the semi-finals it 
had met Osgoode, and won out after a remarkably close 
contest. Osgoode placed on the ice McMaster, goal; 
Boy:", point; Carruthers, cover point; Patterson, Ander- 
son, Macdonnell and McLennan, forwards. Queen's 
came up from the east to face Stratford for the cup, 
and the result was most disappointing to the western 
team, the Kingston University men capturing the cham- 
pionship by 11 goals to 4. The competing teams were: 

Stratford — Cassels, goal; Gibson, point; Ewing, 
cover point; J. A. Macfadder. afterwards President of 
the Association, Downs, Mi^Jer and MarFarlane, for- 
wards. ^ 

Queen's — Hiscock,"^oal7 Curtis, point; McLennan, 
cover point; Weatherhead, McKay, Brock and Harty, 
forwards. 

The little village of Ayr made an enviable record 
in the Senior Series by reaching the semi-finals. They 
went to Kingston, and put up a plucky fight, and lost 
by a score of 6 to .3, Queen's and Stratford battling for 
the championships afterwards. Ayr's team that year 
was made up of J. Elliott, goal; J. Wylie, point; F. 

18 



Clarke, cover point; T. Robson, W. Clarke, B. Deagon, 
W. Hilborn, forwards. 

Peterboro again got into the finals in the Junior 
Series by defeating the Victorias, of Kingston, by 13 
goals to 1. In the west the Toronto Granites defeated 
Berlin by 4 goals to 2. Peterboro and the Toronto 
aggregation came together in Toronto, and the ambi- 
tions that the eastern town had to win the Junior 
Championship were ruthlessly cast aside, and the 
Toronto Juniors — though juniors in those days did not 
limit a man to being married and playing with his own 
children on the ice — succeeded in getting the Junior 
Championship after three years' efforts. The Granites 
were represented in that year by Carlyle, goal; Davis, 
point; McArthur, cover point; Crawford, Dixon, Lillie 
and Johnson, forwards. 

Peterboro lined up against them J. Hamilton, goal; 
W. J. Montgomery, point; S. Adams, cover point; W. 
Phelan, J. Parsons, L. King and Eoger Davidson, for- 
wards. 

YEAE OF 1896-7. 

At the annual meeting in' this year James A. Mac- 
fadden, of Stratford, always an ardent promoter of 
liock«y'S( best interests, succeeded in convincing 'the 
delegates that another series was necessary, and as a 
result the Intermediate Series was formed. The O.H.A. 
also decided to seek incorporation, and from that year 
on it has ranked as an incorporated institution. 

The Treasurer's report indicated that the finances 
were on the increase yearly, and Mr. Creelman informed 
the Association that a balance of $236.07 existed. 

Mr. Macfadden was promoted from the Vice-Presi- 
dency to the chair, and Alexis Martin, of Osgoode, and 
Geo. J. Horkins, of Peterboro, were elected Vice-Presi- 
dents. A new man was chosen by the Association to 
perform the onerous duties of Secretary. The choice 
was Alex. H. Beaton, a representative of the Queen's 
University Club. He filled the position from that time 
until 1902. J. S. Noble, Petrolea; R. G. Fitzgibbon, 
Varsity; H. C. Becher, London; E. P. Brown, Trinity; 
A. F. Campbell and F. L. Morrison, of the Wellingtons, 
were elected to the Executive. 

The teams competing in the three series of the 
Association in the season of 1896-7 were:

W. A. FRY 

DUNNVILLE 
Second Vice-President O.H.A., 1919-1920 



The teams competing in the three series of the 
Association in the season of 1896-7 were: 

Senior — Peterboro, Koyal Military College, Toronto 
Athletic Club, Trinity University, Osgoode Hall, 
Queen's University, Varsity and Stratford. 

Intermediate — Victorias, Toronto Athletic Club and 
Osgoode Hall, of Toronto; Frontenacs and Crystals, of 
Kingston; Norwood, Peterboro, Sarnie, Petrolea, Lon- 
don, Berlin, Brampton and Ayr. 

Junior — Peterboro, Norwood, Frontenacs and 
Queen's, of Kingston; Wellingtons, Osgoode, Trinity 
and Upper Canada College, of Toronto; Gait, Guelph, 
Berlin, Hamilton, Brampton, St. Mary's, London, 
Stratford and Listowel. 

A shock came to the hockey world early in the sea- 
son, when the Queen's team met its first defeat in four 
years, at Peterboro. It was a Senior Championship 
match, out the Kingston men failed to induce Peterboro 
to play a return game in the Limestone City, and 
stepped into the finals, meeting 'Varsity, who had de- 
feated the Toronto Athletic Club in the "Western 
group. Home and home matches took place for the 
Senior ohampionship. 'Varsity discouraged their sup- 
porters in the first contest, which took place in Toronto, 
as Queen's came out victorious by 6 goals to 1. 
'Varsity, though failing to win at Kingston, put up 
a marvellous exhibition of fast hockey and succeeded 
in keeping the score at six goals each. 
The two teams were: 

Queen's — Hiscock, goal; Curtis, point; Merrill, 
cover point; Harty, Dalton, Brock and Weatherhead, 
forwards. 

'Varsity — Waldie, goal; Scott, point; E. Parry, 
cover point; Shepard, Snell, Morrison and Elliott, 
forwards. 

This was Queen's third successive championship in 
the Senior Series. 

The honour of winning the first Intermediate Cham- 
pionship fell to Berlin, the Frontenacs, of Kingston, 
being their opponents in the finals. The match took 
place in Toronto, and was a capital exhibition of 
hockey; the score was 3 to 0, with the following men 
representing the two clubs on the ice: 

Berlin — F. G. Boehmer, goal; J. Gibson, point; Jos. 

21 



Seagram, H. E. Wettlaufer, cover point; Ed. Seagram, 
Jas. McDonald, Dixon and Livingstone, forwards. 

Kingston Frontenacs — Lamb, goal; Rigney, point; 
McDowall, cover point; Cunningham, Keynar, Harty 
and Murray, forwards. 

A new team, but one that later distinguished itself 
by capturing the Senior Championship and the Robert- 
son Cup, the Wellingtons, landed on top in the Junior 
Series in this year, defeating Guelph in the round by 
10 goals to 8. Neither team won the games on their 
own ice. Wellingtons got their lead by scoring 6 
goals to Guelph 's 3, at Guelph, while the latter team 
tallied 5 goals to the Wellingtons 4 at Toronto. 

The Junior champions were: "Dutch" Morison, 
goal; Gray, point; F. Morrison, cover point; Hill, F. 
Morison, Donaldson and Rowland, lorwards. 

Guelph 's seven young players were: Johnston, goal; 
Peters, point; Smith, cover point; Crawford, Barber, 
Till and Petrie, forwards. 

YEAR OF 1897-8. 

A strict anti-professionalism clause, fathered by Jas. 
A. Macfadden, found place in the Rule Book at the 
annual meeting in December, '97. Formed as an ama- 
teur organization, the O.H.A. was found that it would 
adhere to the straight and narrow road in this respect, 
and it xound the winter of 1898 prolific in protests, 
the new clause proving the point of dispute in every 
instance. Though the Executive, which was composed 
of the new President, Alexis Martin and Vice-Presi- 
dents F. W. Tiffin and Alex. Creelman, Secretary Bea- 
ton, Treasurer McMurrich, and Messrs. Lionel King, 
Peterboro; F. J. McLennan, Cornwall; J. S. Robertson, 
Toronto; A. A. Macdonald, Upper Canada College; 
E. P. Brown, 'Varsity, and W. A. Boys, Barrie, had 
many difficult matters to adjudicate upon, they strictly 
enforced the rules and emphasized the fact that ama- 
teurism reigned in the Association. 

Brockville and Cornwall for the first time entered 
teams in the Senior Series. In the Intermediate Series 
the new contestants were Toronto Garrison, Orange- 
ville, Waterloo, Hamilton, Victorias, Listowel, Seaforth, 
Collingwood, Barrie, Orillia, Coldwater and Waubau- 
shene. 

22 



Berlin had only played one match when it was sum- 
moned to appear before the O.H.A. Executive, charged 
with professionalism. The club put forth considerable 
effort to disprove th'e allegation, but failed, and the 
team was expelled. 

Competition for the championship in the several 
series was keen, and the season was one of the most in- 
teresting in the Association's history. Stratford 
Juniors got into the Junior final by defeating Guelph. 
The western men afterwards met Upper Canada College 
and defeat as well, the score being 8 to 2 in favour of 
the young collegians. 

Upper Canada College — Temple, goal; Howitt, point; 
Darling, cover point; Petherbridge, Fraser, Morrison 
and Moffatt. 

Stratford — -Rankin, goal; Monteith, point; Perry, 
cover point; J. Rankin, Poland, Irvine and Lightfoot, 
forwards. 

Stratford again found misfortune with it, when the 
senior team endeavoured to reach the finals by defeat- 
ing Osgoode. The law students, after their victory 
over Stratford, had few to encourage them in their 
next battle for the championship. The concensus of 
opinion was that Queen's would retain the char-.pion- 
ship, but opinion was in error, as the score stood 7 to 
3 at the finish of the contest: Osgoode, 7; Queen's, 3. 

McMurrich, goal; L. Cosby, point; Geo. Carruthers, 
cover point; Johnston, Morrison, Lillie and Edgar 
Carruthers, forwards, wore the Osgoode colors, while 
the Kingston College placed on the ice Carmichael, 
goal; Curtis, point; Merrill, cover point; Adams, New- 
lands, Harris and Dalton, forwards. 

Protests in profusion marred the contests for the 
Intermediate Championship. Waubaushene, a new team 
from Northern Ontario, made a fine record and stepped 
into the semi-finals with Listowel and encountered a 
reverse. A protest was entered out it failed. 

Waterloo travelled to Kingston and played the 
Frontenacs, who won by 9 goals to 5. The defeated 
team was not satisfied and protested the victors, 
alleging that Harty had played under a false name, 
and that he had been a member of a club in New 
York. Their charge was upheld 'and the two teams 
were ordered to meet again, this time in Toronto. It 

23 



was a battle royal and the men from Waterloo came 
out victorious by a score of 7 to 3. 

In the final match Listowel and Waterloo competed 
and the latter team were successful by the score of 10 
to 4. Listowel filed a protest and the Waterloo club 
was disqualLfied, Listowel being awarded the Inter- 
mediate Championship. 

The two teams who had- gained notoriety before 
the Executive and on the ice, were composed as follows: 

Listowel — ^Ford, goal; Climie, point; Meyers, cover 
point; Livingston, Hacking, Orr, Kidd. 

"Waterloo — Koehler, goal; Forrester, point; Joe 
Seagram, cover point; Ed. Seagram, Dixon, Clemes, 
Hendry. 

YEAR OF 1898-9. 

The conduct of O.H.A. affairs had won for the sport 
many warm admirers, and one of them, in the person of 
Mr. J. Ross Robertson, then M.P. for East Toronto, 
came forward at the annual meeting on December 3, 
1898, and donated for competition in the Senior Series, 
a magnificent solid silver challenge trophy. The cup, 
which is of tazza form, is made of purest Can£.dian 
silver. It is lined with Canadian gold and richly 
decorated with bas-relief of lions, masks and fells, 
which stand out from the piece in high relief. A 
striking feature of this original cup are three leopard 
handles, beautifully modelled and chased. Its weight 
is 130 ounces. It is thirteen inches in diameter and 
ten in height and stands on a plinth six inches in 
height, with six silver Hogarth-shaped shields for in- 
scribing the winners' names. When Mr. Robertsoz 
made the presentation, the delegates were filled with 
delight and his speech emphasizing his faith in amateur 
sport, was enthusiastically received by the gathering. 
Among other things he said that won him the friend- 
ship of hockey enthusiasts, were these expressions: 

"Hockey is practically the winter sport for the 
young men of the Dominion and those of the province 
should stand at the head of the game." 

"A manly nation is always fond of manly sports. 
If we want our boys to be strong, vigorous and self- 
reliant, we must encourage athletics." 

"A trophy is a prize for which clubs may honor- 
ably contend. There is no personal gain to any player 

24 



and yet the emblem is an incentive to each to ao his 
best." 

"Sport should be pursued for its own sake, for 
when professionalism begins, true sport ends." 

Alex. Creelman, who had been Treasurer and Vice- 
President, succeeded Alexis Martin as President, and 
J. S. Robertson and A. A. Macdonald were made Vice- 
Presidents. J. D. McMurrich and A. H. Beaton were 
retained as Treasurer and Secretary respectively. The 
Executive Committee chosen was: Lionel King, Peter- 
boro; ii. P. Brown, 'Varsity; Geo. E. Gray, Coldwater; 
A. B. Petrie, Guelph; F. Morison, Wellingtons; A. Gau- 
thier, Windsor. 

W. A. Buchanan, of the Peterboro Club, introduced 
an amendment to the rules, providing that the Junior 
Series should be limited to players under twenty years 
of age. The proposition evoked strong opposition, but 
the arguments in its favor impressed the delegates and 
the change was adopted. 

The healthy spirit that characterized the annual 
meeting dominated the O.H.A. during the season, and 
very few allegations of professionalism had to be dealt 
with by the Executive. 

Berlin, Guelph, Victorias, Belleville, Ontario Agri- 
cultural College, Preston, Lakefield and Millbrook 
joined the Association. 

With their eyes on the new Eobertson trophy, the 
senior teams put unusual zest into the competition for 
the championship, but Queen's University, bound to 
possess the honour of first holders of the cup, set a 
pace that could not be surpassed, and Toronto Uni- 
versity, representing the western groups in the final 
match, succumbed to 19 to 11. Peterboro put up a 
great battle against 'Varsity, and nearly landed the 
competition against the Kingston team. 

The seven men whose names were inscribed on the 
first shield of the trophy were: Carmichael, goal; 
Curtis, point; Merrill, cover point; Harty, Dalton, 
Harris and Newlands, forwards, xne defeated seven 
were: Waldie, goal; Isbister, point; Darling, cover 
point; Snell, McKenzie, Shepard and Broder, for- 
wards. 

Two Toronto teams — the St. George's and Upper 
Canada College — were left in the Junior finals, and the 
St. George's got the cup, defeating the team fror.i the 

25 



college by 7 goals to 2. Pardoe, goal; Piatt, point: 
Bish, cover point; Temple, Birmingham, Gillies and 
Warden played for the victors. Temple, goal; Hen- 
derson, point; Gray, cover point; Bert Morrison, "Worts, 
Moffatt and Eraser, represented Upper Canada College. 

Protests in almost every important match caused 
the result of the contest for the Intermediate Cham- 
pionship to be uncertain until the first week in March, 
when the famous Guelph Nationals and the Frontenacs 
of Kingston met in the latter city. Guelph was de- 
feated, the score being 5 goals to 2. In the west, 
Guelph had beaten Listowel. Listowel protested un- 
successfully, and then the Eoyal City team went to 
London and were vanquished. A protest was soon 
forthcoming, and London was ordered to play over 
again, because it had on its team three men who were 
members of the City League. This order of the 
Executive was not obeyed, and Guelph won by default 
and faced the Kingston Frontenacs for the champion 
ship, the two teams competing on that occasion being: 

Guelph Nationals — Eaymo, goal; Howitt, point; 
Morrison, cover point; Carmichael, Barber, Snell and 
Shields. 

Kingston Frontenacs — Hiscock, goal; McRae, point; 
McDowall, cover point; Reynar, Wilson, Murray and 
Clarke, forwards. 

YEAR OF 1899-1900. 

The growth of the Association continued at a phe- 
nomenal pace, and at the annual meeting, on Dec. 2nd, 
1899, Secretary Beaton reported that there were nine 
more clubs in the membership than the year previous, 
21 more than in 1897, and 35 more than in 1896. 

Mr. J. Ross Robertson was persuaded to accept the 
position of President for the next year. The two Vice- 
Presidents chosen were Lionel King, Peterboro, and A. 
A. Macdonald, Upper Canada College, Toronto. J. D. 
McMurrich was re-elected Treasurer, and A. H. Beaton, 
Secretary. The new Executive was: J. S. Robertson, 
Toronto; A. B. Petrie, Guelph; Dr. Thomson, Midland; 
Francis Nelson, Toronto; A. J. Isbister, Toronto, and 
Gordon Crawford, Toronto. 

Mr. Richard Garland presented a cup for competi- 
tion in the Intermediate Series. 

26 



The Association decided at this meeting to raise the 
deposit in case of protests from $5 to $25. 

Queen's expectations of retaining the Robertson Cup 
for a second season seemed cheerful until the last 
match was played, the Wellingtons of Toronto over- 
coming at Kingston the lead secured by Queen's at 
Toronto, and captured the cup and the championship. 
It was a remarkable victory on the part of the To- 
ronto team. On their own ice the Wellington were 
beaten by 3 goals to 1, and their hopes were not buoy- 
ant when they journeyed to Kingston a week later. 
Queen's anticipated an easy victory, but when the re- 
sult was announced the college team had lost the 
match in their own rink by 5 goals to 1, and the Well- 
ingtons took the Senior Championship and cup. 

The competing teams were: Wellington — Morison, 
goal; Smart, point; Darling, cover point; Chadwick, 
McKay, Hill and Warden, forwards. 

Queen's — 'Hiscock, goal; Curtis, point; McDowall, 
cover point; Dalton, Merrill, Carr-Harris and Walkem, 
forwards. 

Though a new member of the Association, Belle- 
ville came to the front rapidly in the fight for the 
Intermediate Championship, and reached the final with 
London, who had won in the semi-finals from St. 
George's, of Toronto. The championship battle oc- 
curred in Toronto and was closely contested. London 
came out victorious by 3 goals to 1. The teams were: 

London — Johns, goal; Peel, point; Brown, cover 
point; Ashplant, Ewing, Hobbs, Westcott. forwards. 

Belleville — Winchester, goal; Wallace, point; Du- 
bois, cover point; Lang, Emory, McGuiie, Marks, for- 
wards. 

A lively contest for honors in the Junior Series 
kept up excitement in hockey at Stratford and Peter- 
boro until late in the season. In two matches, Peter 
boro and Upper Canada College made even scores, and 
a contest to decide the winners of the round was 
played at Lindsay, and Peterboro won, leaving them 
in the finals with Stratford, and the western club came 
out best by 12 goals to 9. 

The two teams were: 

Stratford — Woods, goal; Morrison, point; Gordon, 
cover point; Poland, Eankin, Hern and Lightfoot, for- 
warrls.

FRANCIS NELSON 

TORONTO. 
A.A.U. of C. Governor 



Peterboro — Miller, goal; Cavanagh, point; Arm- 
strong, cover point; Lynch, Morgan, Whitcroft and 
Harry King, forwards. 

At Peterboro the score was 6 to 3 in favor of the 
home team, but Stratford overcame the lead of theii 
opponents on Stratford ice, winning by a score of S 
to 3. 

YEAR OF 1900-1901. 

Ten years old and the Association thriv s. The 
annual meeting of 1900 was characterized by a perfect 
system in the conduct of business. As a legislative 
body, tne O.H.A. ranks far ahead of any athletic or- 
ganization in the Dominion. It controls a greater 
number of clubs, covers a vaster amount of territory 
and stands prominently before the public as the lead- 
ing association for the promotion of amateur sport in 
Canada. All the reports and the address of the Presi- 
dent, J. Ross Robertson, emphasized these facts. The 
Secretary reported that the O.H.A. controlled 52 clubs, 
and the Treasurer gave the information that $30P still 
stood to the Association's credit. Mr. Beaton, in his 
report of the Executive, pointed out that in the season 
of 1899-1900 the Nationals of Guelph were thrown out 
for professionalism. 

A year had been spent in receiving and considering 
amendments to the Rules and Regulations of the Asso- 
ciation, and the Executive submitted a complete re- 
vision, and u was adopted. The changes included an 
increase of the entrance and subscription fees from 
$2.00 and $3.00 to $.5.00; the adoption of the goal net; 
permission to stop the puck with the hand; the nomi- 
nation by the President of two members of the Execu- 
tive, the Association electing the remaining four; the 
nomination of officers seven days before the Annual 
Convention, and the fixing of the time of residence of a 
player in the town to which his club belongs at 
October 1, instead of November 1. The Association 
also decided that each club should send one delegate 
with power to cast a vote for every team it entered. 

Mr. J. Ross Robertson was re-elected President 
without opposition. The officers of the year were 
Vice-Presidents, A. A. Macdonald, Upper Canada Col- 
lege, and A. B. Petrie, Jr., Guef^h. Secretary, A. H. 
Beaton. Treasurer, J. D. McMurrich. Executive Com- 

29 ^ *^ 



mittee, W. A. Buchanan, Francis Nelson, Dr. W. P. 
Thomson, Frank Hobbs, H. J. Powell, and George 
Stiles. 

When the annual meeting came around on Decem- 
ber 7, 190i, the officers in their reports indicated that 
the Association had enjoyed a year of unprecedented 
prosperity. The President told about the condition of 
the Association in these words: 

"In the season of 1S99-1900 we had 13 teams in 
the Senior Series; 23 in the Intermediate, and 16 in 
the Junior Series — a total of 52. 

"Last year (1900-1901) we had nine teams in the 
Senior Series, a slight decrease; 31 in the Intermediate, 
an increase; and 17 in the Junior, also an increase — a 
total of 57, This season we have already applications 
from 20 clubs, with a probability of ten affiliating. 

"For tnese additions we feel more than ordinary 
gratification, for many of our new affiliates hail from 
important districts that were not represented last 
year. The correspondence shows that this desire to 
join hands with us is not only from a wish to partici- 
pate in all the advantages for which our competitions 
offer, as the premier Hockey Association of the Pro- 
vince, but from a belief that our determination is to 
make hockey the clean game of the honest amateur. 

"Nine clubs entered in the Senior Series. In the 
preliminary round ten matches were played, bringing 
the .. ellingtons, of Toronto, and Queen's University 
into the finals. Three contests were then necessary to 
decide the winner of the Kobertson Cup. Queen's won 
the first match at Kingston, but it was ordered to be 
played over again, and the Toronto team won both at 
home and in the second game in the Limestone City, 
by a majority of 7 goals to 2. 

"Altogether 68 matches took place in the second

Peterboro, Simcoes, of Toronto, Penetanguishene, 
Stratford and Barrie. Of these Peterboro, Stratford 
and Barrie got into the semi-finals, and then Barrie 
lost to Peterboro, and the teams from the east and 
west competed for the championship, the seven young- 
sters from Peterboro finally winning by a majority of 
five goals. This is the second year in succession in 
which these two teams competed against each other 
for the junior championship. The total number of 
matches played under the auspices of the Association 
in the three series last season was 121. The attend- 
ance on each occasion was a marked feature and in- 
dica/ted that hockey has a large following in Ontario. 

"Our finances are another indication of prosperity. 
In 1899 our receipts were $685.05, and our expenses 
$376.05. In 1900 our receipts were $743.60, and ex- 
penses $458.95. Our receipts this year reach the high 
figure of $1,094.95, with expenses of $451.08, leaving 
$645 to our credit in the bank, 

"Your Executive, in maintaining the honor of the 
genuine amateur of the Association has had to meet a 
good deal of off-side work. We thought that bitter ex- 
perience had taught us all we could possibly learn of 
ways that are dark and tricks that are vain. The Lon- 
don Hockey Club, however, proved that the heathen 
Chinee was a back number. We had yet a lot to learn. 
We found that in the fine art of perjury there were 
men to the fore that could give the child-like Oriental 
cards and spades in this particular line of business. 
The making of a false declaration may rank as a fine 
art in some associations, but your Executive has deter- 
mined that in the O.H.A. it shall rank as one of the 
lost arts. The case has been fully reported in the 
press, so that a summary of it will suffice for my pur- 
post. The game took place on 16th Jan., 1901. 

"London, in its match with stratford, on its own 
ice, played a man who it alleged to be a resident who 
lived in a township naar tha,t city. This resident had 
been given permissionMo play, with London. The night 
of the match everyboay, with the exception of those 
who had arranged the deal, thought the stranger on 
the ice was the man from the township. The belief 
might have been held until ^is minute, and many 
minutes hereafter, had not a spwtator acquainted with 
the township man, discovered that it was not he who 

4 J 

31 ^ ^ 



was playiag the phenomenally fast game on the Lon- 
don teau, but a "tourist," a hockeyist from Mont- 
real. The game ended. London won. Stratford pro- 
tested the match, claiming that London had played a 
"tourist." London defended the ease. It startled the 
Executive by filing an affidavit from the township man 
declaring that he had played on the night oi the 16th 
January in London, against Stratford. 

"A member of the Executive visited the locality in 
order to unravel the mystery. He saw his employer. 
The latter stated that the young man had not been off 
the farm on the night of the 16th January. The town- 
ship man saw the game was up. He acknowledged 
signing the declaration that he had played for the 
London club, and admitted what he had declared was 
false from beginning to end. He then tried to make 
amends. He saw that he was up against the criminal 
code. He realized his position. He said that in order 
to help London out of the hole he had made a false 
declaration, and in set terms made a second declara- 
tion, that he had not played against Stratford. The 
members of the Executive reported the position of 
matters to the London club. Their ignorance indicated 
a large range of possibilities. Your Executive acted, 
and London's career as an amateur hockey centre fell 
with a dull thud. The officers of the club and the team 
were expelled and professionalized. To make matters 
worse, your Executive found that another player on 
the London team had received financialinducements at 
a match in Tavistock, and later that he had been paid 
in London. The Montreal player finally admitted his 
guilt. He told the truth, the whole truth, and, I think, 
nothing but the truth. In an affidavit he gave the 
details of how the scheme was put up and carried out, 
showing the event as a disgrace to all who had been 
connected with it. 

"Your Executive took action. It was guided by 
the best legal advice. It went M the limit of its power, 
and it is not its fault i£Jthe i»vcrs of the law were 
not also exercised. Youy Execmivc did not thirst for 
vengeance, but ^lid think that per.iury should not be 
regarded a.9iB mere boyish folly. The legal adviser of 
the Association — an eminent counsel — gave every con- 
sideration to the eviddSbe. His opinion was that "-here 
wai a ^od case for prosecution, but that the diffi- 



XJ 



32 



culties arising out of local sentiment in favor of the 
offenders would make success very doubtful." 

The championship teams in 1901 were: 

Senior: — Wellingtons, Toronto; Morison, goal; 
Smart, point; Darling, cover point; Chadwick (Capt.), 
Ardagh, Warden, Hill, forwards. 

Intermediate: — ^St. George's, Toronto; Temple, goal; 
platt, point; Bisch, cover point; lardoe, Gillies 
(Capt.), Webster, Hynes, forwards. 

Junior: — Peterboro' Colts; Brundrette, goal; Cava- 
nagh (Capt.), point; Armstrong, cover point; King, 
Morgan, Smith, Whitcroft, forwards. 

For the third time J. Ross Eobertson was re-elected^ 
President by acclamation; Dr. Thomson succeeded A.' 
B. Petrie, Jr., as one of the Vice-Presidents; while W. 
A. Buchanan was chosen as Treasurer, J. T^. McMur- 
rich retiring after having held the position since 1897. 

The Stanley Cup, at that time the trophy carrying 
with it the world's championship, was again competed 
for by 0. H. A. champions. In 1897 Queen's Univer- 
sity unsuccessfully attempted to wrest it from the 
Victorias, of Montreal. Three winters elapsed before 
another team made an effort to win this coveted cham- 
pionship. In the latter part of January, 1902, the 
Wellingtons, of Toronto, travelled to Winnipeg and 
played very exciting matches with the Victorias of 
that city, then holders of the Stanley Cup. They did 
not return victorious, but brought distinction to the 
0. H. A. neA'ertheless. The Winnipeg team won both 
matches — the arrangement had been made that the 
team winning two matches out of three should be the 
victor — the score in each being five goals to three. The 
team sent west by the Wellingtons waj composed of 
Morison, goal; Smart, point; Ardagh, cover point; 
McKay (Capt.), Chadwick, McLaren and Hill, for- 
wards. 

YEAE OF 1901-2. 

The 0. H. A. seaso^^ 1902 was remarkably success- 
ful, one of the featurelrbeingv that competition for all 
the Association championshipsjwas almost void of any *_ 
dishonorable tactics, and pKessionalism seemed to ^ 
have wholly disappeared, an ^floi fuent W^bute to the 
Associations strong stand in faiB of pure amateurism. 

The Senior Series was eomproed of eight clubs, the 

S3 ^ . 



same number as the previous year» The Intermediate 
Series had grown to thirty-four clubs, an increase of 
three; while the Junior Series increased to the extent 
of ten clubs, bringing their to,tal up to twenty. This 
made the total number of clubs, sixty-nine, the largest 
on record up to then. 

The final game in all the series were a marked fea- 
ture of the success of the season. In every instance 
were they well contested, and in at least one case the 
most phenomenal game ever played in a final in the 
O. H. A. up to that time, was witnessed. In the Senior 
Series the extreme east and west met in the final game, 
viz. — Cornwall vs. Wellingtons of Toronto; the latter 
team fresh from their creditable performance in "Winni- 
peg, proved a great drawing card in all games in which 
they participated throughout the season. In Cornwall 
the Wellingtons defeated the easterners by a score of 
4 to 3. The return game, played in Toronto, March 
3rd, favored the Wellingtons, by a score of 8 to 3, the 
Wellingtons winning the round by 12 to 6. 

In the Intermediate Series Peterboro' and Gait met 
in the finals in very keenly contested games, the result 
of which was in doubt until the last minute of the 
second game. In Peterboro' the score on March 7th 
was 4 to 3 in favor of the home club, and on March 
10th, in Gait, the score at the end of time was 3 to 3, 
Peterboro' therefore winning the round by the narrow 
margin of one goal, viz., 7 to 6. 

In the Junior Series, one of the most remarkable 
contests in the history oi the O. H. A. was seen. On 
March 3rd, in Stratford, U. C. C. and the home club 
played a tie, 4 to 4. On March 6th, in Toronto, at the 
end of one hour's play, the sciJre was 5 to 5. Two 
extra periods (or twenty minutes in all) were required 
to decide the winner, the score being 7 to 6 in favor 
of U. C. C, the College team therefore winning the 
round by 11 to 10. 

The financial statement for (he year was most grati- 
fying, the Association havingHinjalance of some $1,- 
066.12, almost double the amount carried forward the 
previous year. ^ 

At the atuilial ineQtjfk on December 6th the only 
iflMBortant amendmentaPopted was that which removed 
thSPast Presidents oWhe Association from the Execu- 



i: 



34 



tive. The new rules provide that only the immediate 
Past President can sit on that committee. 

Mr. J. Koss Eobertson was for the fourth time re- 
elected President by acclamation, and Messrs. A. H. 
Beaton and Francis Nelson were elected Vice-Presi- 
dents. 

Mr. A. H. Beaton, after having held the position of 
Secretary oi the Association for six years, retired, and 
Mr. W. A. Buchanan was elected Sec.-Treas. 

YEAK OF 1902-3. 

In the season of 192-3 there were entered in the 
Association seventy-two clubs, forty-three, of them in 
the intermediate series, twenty-four in the junior and 
five in the senior. 

In every single district the race was as keen as the 
most rabid enthusiast could hope for, several of them 
being decided only after extra games were played be- 
tween the two. leaders. It was a great season for 
hockey and the rivalry was quite as keen after the 
season closed as it was amid the hopes and Growings 
before ice was available. 

The senior struggle was not a great one in numbers, 
but the quality of the hockey played was quite as 
good as could be found anywhere. In the east the 
Frontenacs fell away. Smith's Falls n^ade a gallant 
stand against Cornwall, playing them a draw at Corn- 
wall and losing by a single goal at home. In the west 
the "Wellingtons required their best foot forward to 
overcome the St. George's. They had a comparatively 
easy time of it with the Sault, though the latter held 
them five to three at home. The final game saw a 
grand struggle, and, the vanquished Cornwall seven 
derived quite as much honor out of the games as the 
champion Wellingtons. The two fought a glorious bat- 
tle in Toronto, each scoring 3, and at Cornwall the 
game went to Wellingtons by 3 to 2, after one of the ;' 

gamest and hardest fought matches ever played in the M 

O. H. A. 

The intermedin te series Was divided into thirteen 
districts, and in no fewer than five of them the leader- 
ship depended on the last g*nie played. The winners J^ 
were — Prescott, Belleville, ^^rt, Pei^^ Marlboro 's,,j(ir 
Newmarket, Owen Sound, BalM, Gravenhurst, Thes- 
salon, Seventh Eegiment (LotRou), Listowel, Paris 
and Stratford.

Trcusurer, O.II.A.. 1919 20. 



In the struggle for the survival of the fittest Barrie 
cleaned up the north, Paris the west, Marlboro's the 
centre, and Belleville the east, all by hard games. The 
Marlboro's were pitted against Belleville and lost by 
a total on the two games of 11 to 12. They protested 
Marks as a professional baseball player, and the two 
were ordered to play over, which Bellrville refused to 
do. 

In the semi-final Barrie lost at Paris by 6 to 1, and 
won at home 3 to 1, and the Marlboro's lost at Paris 
in the linal by 6 to 2, and at Toronto by 6 to 5, giving 
Paris a clean cut championship. The ice was very soft 
during the last two series, and the games were played 
on slushy sheets covered with water. 

In this series the O. H. A. Executive considered 
that Penetanguishene had not been fairly treated in- 
asmuch as Midland had been placed at the head of 
the district through the defaulting of Orillia and Cold- 
water in their favor. Penetang was the loser by the 
deal, and they were given an opportunity of playing 
off with Midland for the leadership of the district, and 
won it. 

The struggle in the junior series was quite as excit- 
ing as in the two higher grades. There were eight 
districts, the winners of which were Frontenac-Beech- 
groves (Kingston), Cobourg, Marlboro's, St. Andrew's, 
'Varsity, Penetanguishene, Barrie and Stratford. The 
Kingston team walloped everything to Toronto, Pene- 
tang wiped out Barrie, and the Marlboro's attended to 
the west. Penetang succumbed to Marlboro's by 8 to 
2 at Toronto, and won by 7 to 6 at home, giving the 
Toronto team the round. 

The final between the Frontenac-Beechgroves and 
the Marlboro's eclipsed all previous records in the 
closeness of the contests and in the excitement raised. 
At Kingston the Frontenacs won by 6 to 4, and lost at 
Toronto 3 to 1, leaving the two a tie on the round. 
The final at Port Hope was a' record-breaker. At half- 
time the Marlboro's led by 1 to 0; at full time it was 
a tie, two all, and it was not until after exactly an 
hour's extra play had been indulged in that the To- 
ronto team pulled out a victory and the championship 
by a single goal, winning by 4 to 3. 

The champions and runnera up in each series were 
as follows: — w 

37 



Senior — Champions Wellingtons — Goal, Louden; 
point, Pringle; cover point, Ardagh; forwards, Hill, 
Worts, Cnadwick, McLaren. 

iiunners-up — Cornwall — Goal, Hunter; point, War- 
wick; cover point, G. Stiles; forwards, McMillan, H. 
Stiles, Eastwood, Allen.

Earls, Birmingham, Ferguson, Reid. 

Junior — Champions Marlboro's (Toronto) — Goal, 
Geroux; point, Gall; cover point, Brown; forwards, 
Smith, F. Toms, C. Toms, Anderson. 

Runners-up — Frontenac-Beechgroves (Kingston) — 
Goal, Macdonald; point, Robbins; cover point, Harold 
Clarke; forwards, Kidd, Herb. Clarke, Potter, Wil- 
liams. 

YEAR OF 1903-4. 

The hockey year of 1903-4 marked another stride 
forward in the number of clubs .competing. Ninety- 
seven began the season — twelve in the senior series, 
fifty-four in the intermediate and thirty-one in the 
junior — a substantial advance in each of the sections 
over the year before. 

It was Mr. J. Ross Robertson's fifth year in the 
Presidential chair, and the season was a fitting one, to 
mark the rounding ofif of the period. He had with him 
Francis Nelson and D. L. Darroch as Vice-Presidents, 

A. W. McPherson, Treasurer, and W. A. Hewitt as 
Secretary, replacing W. A. Buchanan, who resigned. 
The Executive was Messrs. Duff Adams, Paris; J. A 
Washburn, Smith's Falls; E. G. Porter, Belleville; H. 
D. Jamieson, Barrie; W. Wyndham, Hamilton, and A. 

B. Cox, London. On the death of A. B. Cox, the 
President appointed J. G. Merrick, of Toronto. The 
financial statement showed receipts of $2,121.74, in- 
cluding a balance of $1,066.12 from the year before and 
disbursements of $898.72, leaving a balance of $1,243.02 
The winter saw the best hockey in each of the series 
that the Associatioiv. ever experienced. The severe 
weather gave ice in plenty, the one diflBculty being the 
unique one of towns ^ing snowed in and unable to 
meet their dates on time. 

38 



The senior series was divided into three districts — 
two in the east and one, embracing two Toronto teams 
and Barrie, in the west. 

Some little difficulty was experienced in the east 
tlirough a little too extended a schedule in one of the 
districts, which was, however, happilv settled and 
plenty of time given for the final games. The first 
district had a close race of it, the first three teams 
being tie on the first round. Prescott won out only 
to succumb to Perth by 18 goals to 12 in the semi- 
finals. The winners had captured group 2 only after 
a close race, with Brockville right on their heels. 

The western section furnished the greatest hockey 
the 0. H. A. ever saw in Toronto. The Marlboro's had 
a clean sheet of victories, defeating the strong St. 
George's seven both times they met, but only through 
the closest and cleverest kind of hockey. Barrie lost 
all four games, but their defeat on each occasion was 
no disgrace, particularly at the hands of the two To- 
ronto teams. 

The final games between the Marlboros and Perth 
showed the western team to be much superior. They 
won at Perth 9 to 3, and at Toronto 19 to 6. 

Fifteen groups accommodated the intermediates. 
Two of them were sub-divided and two were amal- 
gamated, making actually sixteen districts. The east 
furnished two groups with seven teams; central On- 
tario five with eighteen clubs; the west two with ten 
representatives, and the north four with thirteen 
sevens. The winners in the first round were Brockville, 
Belleville, Stouffville, St. George's, Marlboros, George- 
town, Midland, Bracebridge, Sudbury, Thessalon, Wat- 
ford, Stratford and Welalnd. Burk's Falls had beaten 
Bracebridge in the deciding game m group 8, but was 
disqualified for playing Eobert Morison, of Guelph, 
an ineligible man. Kincardine drew a bye in the 
first round, but when it came time for the second round 
their communication with the outside world was by 
me*ns of the telephone and telegraph lines only, and 
the snow banks being unnegotiable, they were obliged 
to withdraw from the series. 

The second round developed as winners Belleville, 
St. George's, Marlboros, Midland, Thessalon, Watford 
and Stratford, and the third «brought to the front 
Belleville, Midland and Stratforcf. 

39 •^ 



Meanwhile it developed that Belleville had em- 
ployed ways that were dark, and the Association was 
forced to throw out the games in which Angus McMil- 
lan played for them, leaving Midland and Stratford to 
fight it out under d deluge of injunctions Irom Belle- 
ville. The championship went to Stratford by 13 to 11. 
As usual, the junior struggle furnished some of the 
cleverest and most scientific hockey of the season. 
Nine groups faced the starter, which, with two sub- 
divided, made eleven actually, but Guelph had a bye, 
and Owen Sound coming in later took their place when 
they dropped out. 

The east and north again brought out the Fron- 
tenac-Beechgroves of Kingston and Barrie, while Co- 
bourg, Whitby, Upper Canada College, St. George's 
and Listowel filled in space between. The Kingston 
seven outclassed Cobourg, and Upper Canada had an 
easier time with Whitby than they had in landing their 
own district froni the Westerns of Toronto. Barrie 
won from St. George's and Listowel had a default 
from Owen Sound. The Beechgroves and Listowel 
were returned for the final, which the snow blockade, 
which isolated the latter for a week or more, held back 
for ome days. The Kingston youngsters, in splendid 
hockey, cleaned up the sudden-death game in Toronto 
by 9 to 5. 

The champions and runners-up in the three series 
were as follows: 

Senior champions — Marlboros (Toronto) — Goal, Ge- 
roux; point, Charlton; cover point, Wright; forwards, 
Birmingham, Philliips, Winchester, McLaren. 

Kunners-up — Perth — Goal, Eutherford; point, Elliot; 
cover point, R. McLaren; forwards, W. McLaren, Lan- 
non, Wilson, Rooney. 

Intermediate — Winners, Stratford — Goal, Woods; 
point, Eason; cover point, Forbes; forwards, Edmunds, 
Lightfoot, Lloyd, Hern. 

Runners-up — Midland — Goal, Thompson; point, Han- 
ley; cover point, Fenton; forwards, Gould, Kempt. Eng- 
lish, Miller. 

Junior — Winners, Frontenac-Beechgroves (Kings- 
ton) — Goal, Macdonald; point, Harold Clarke; cover 
point. Van Home; ^rwards. Herb Clarke, Potter, Wil- 
liams, Derry. , 

Eunners-up — ListoVel — Goal, Spears; point, Meyers; 

« 40 



cover point, Bruce; forwards, Taylor, Hay, Brooks, 
Hacking. 

For the third time the O. H. A. champions strove to 
lift the Stanley Cup, emblematic of the world's cham- 
pionship, held by Ottawa, The two previous attempts 
were made by Queen's University in 1897 against the 
Montreal Victorias, and by the Wellingtons of To- 
ronto, in 1902, against "Winnipeg. As on these occa- 
sions, the Marlboros were also unsuccessful, but made 
a clever showing, leading by 3 to 1 at half time in the 
first match, which, however, they lost 6 to 3. The sec- 
ond one also slipped from them by 11 to 2. 

During this year the Association was involved in a 
law suit with Belleville over the declaration that 
Angus McMillan, of Belleville, was ineligible to play 
for the latter team under the residence clause. The 
question arose and Belleville ignored the Association's 
request for a defence. Finally affidavits were sent to 
show that McMillan had been in that town before 
October 1st. Proof was, however, secured that Mc- 
Millan had resided in Smith's Falls up to the last 
week in October, and the Executive declared him in- 
eligible and threw out the games he had taken part in. 
Belleville secured injunctions preventing Peterborough 
competing in the semi-final matches. The suit was fin- 
ally decided against McMillan with costs. 

The Peel case was made a great issue during the 
year. Harry Peel, of London, who was thrown out 
with that team in 1901, in the historic Wynn case, and 
during the next year played professional hockey for 
$20 a week in Pittsburg on his own acknowledgment, 
again made aplication for reinstatement. On Dec. 
10th, 1903, at a full meeting of the Executive, the re- 
quest was refused by a vote of 9 to 1. On Feb. 13, 
1904, during the absence of the President, he was de- 
clared an amateur by the Executive on a vote of 5 to 
4. On Nov. 30th, 1904, the Executive at its last meet- 
ing confirmed the action taken at the first meting on 
December 10th, and declared his reinstatement illegal. 
The declaration was as follows: — 

"That, whereas the Executive of the 0. H. A. has 
always acted upon the principle that (a question once 
decided) a decision once rendered, cannot be re-opened, 
reconsidered or reversed (the same season) without 
fresh evidence, be it resolved that the Executive here- 

41 ^ 



I 



by affirms the decision of December 10th, 1903, refus- 
ing the application of the late A. B. Cox for the rein- 
statement of Harry Peel, and that the said Executive 
of the 0. H. A. declares that all proposals or resolutions 
purporting to vary, reverse or in any way alter the 
said decision of December lOth, 1903, are illegal, of 
no effect, and contrary to the fundamental law of the 
O. H. A., and that the said Harry Peel is still a pro- 
fessional, according to the rules of the O. H. A., and 
the final decision of this Executive." 

At the annual meeting on Dec. 3rd, 1904, the "Peel 
case" was made an issue by London, and an attempt 
was made to override the last action of the Executive 
and reinstate Peel. After a discussion of two hours 
involving a pretty warm debate, the meeting, by a 
vote of 43 to 26, confirmed the resolution passed by the 
Executive in its meeting of Nov. 30th, 1904, in the fol- 
lowing resolution: — 

"Whereas, the Executive of the 0. H. A. has always 
acted upon the principle that a question once decided, 
a decisioi , once rendered, cannot be reopened, recon- 
sidered or reversed during the same season without 
fresh evidence, be it resolved that this Association 
hereby" endorses the decision of the Executive of 
Thursday, Dec. 10th, 1903, refusing the application of 
the late A. B. Cox for the reinstatement of Harry 
Peel, and that this annual meeting of the 0. H. A. de- 
clare that all propositions or resolutions purporting to 
vary, reverse, or in any way alter the said decision 
of December 10th, 1903, are illegal, void, of no effect, 
and contrary to the fundamental law of the O. H. A., 
and that the Association declare that the said Harry 
Peel is still a professional according to the rules of 
the O. H. A., and to the first and only legal decision of 
the Executive, and directs the incoming Executive to 
enter this resolution in its minute book." 

The total votes registered at this meeting were 74, 
of which 69 were cast on the Peel resolution. The 69 
included the names of the President, Mr. Robertson; 
the First Vice-President, Mr. Nelson; the Treasurer, 
Mr. McPherson; the Secretary, Mr. Hewitt, and Mr. 
Merrick, of the Executive, who all had one vote each 
and voted "yea." Mr. Darroch, Second Vice-Presi- 
dent, and Mr. Wyndham, of the Executive, voted 
"nay." The yeas were 43, nays 26, total 69; 5 clubs 
did not vote.

The following clubs did not vote: — Gait (2), Inger 
soil Juniors (1), Lindsay (1), Port Hope (1) — 4. And 
Mr. J. A. Washburn, of the Executive; Mr. Hunt, ot 
Gait; Dr. Sinclair, of Ingersoll Juniors; Mr. O'Neil, of 
Lindsay, and Dr. Wood, of Toronto, did not vote. These 
representatives were unavoidably absent when the vote 
was called. 

Following the Peel case came the amendment by 
J. M. Martin, of Barrie, which states in as many words 
that henceforth no professionals shall be reinstated. 
The principle "once a professional always a profes- 
sional," which had long been the spirit of the rule to 
those who had the best interests of hockey at heart, 
was thus once and for all embodied in the rule book. 
It was passed unanimously. 

The changes in the constitution, the regulations and 
rules of competition made were in brief: 

That a club refusing to obey the orders of the 
0. H. A. or its Executive suspends itself. 

That the annual meeting be the second Saturday in 
November, instead of the first Saturday in December. 

That the schedules of the O. H. A., where other 
leagues are concerned, have precedence. 

That no professional can be reinstated. 

That the ice size in rinks be 60 x 160.

That city and town league players be permitted to 
play in the O. H. A. 

That when mileage is below 80 miles the referee is 
allowed mileage for 80. 

That in addition to the regular time-keepers there 
will also be a penalty time-keeper, and that all time- 
keepers are controlled by the referee. 

That the goal umpire reports the goal to the referee, 
who awards and announces it. This takes away the 
power of the goal umpire to award. 

That play shall be started by "dropping" instead 
of "placing" the puck. 

That the referee may be an amateur or a profes-

During the year a scandal arose in the Toronto 
Lacrosse Club in the N.A.L.U., resulting in the pro- 
fessionalizing of all but three by the C.A.A.U. The 
C.L.A., whose professional leanings had been grow- 
ing apace, came out during the season in its senior 
series without the trouble of wearing the amateur mask 
except in its rule books. As a result the president 
placed the ban on all senior lacrosse players, whether 
in the C.L.A. or in the N.A.L.U. His action was up- 
held by the Executive, in the following resolution: 

"That this Executive hereby affirms the funda- 
mental law of the O.H.A. in that it is an amateur and 
not a professional organization, and that its definition 
of an amateur as contained in its rules and regula- 
tions is absolutely the standard under which players 
will be allowed to become members of clubs in the 
Association. 

"That this Executive hereby endorses the action 
of its president in notifying clubs that players of 
senior lacrosse in the C.L.A. and N.A.L.U. cannot 
qualify for membership' in the O.H.A., and that there- 
fore all such players are precluded from entrance into 
the annual meeting as delegates." 

The annual meeting was held on the 3rd Dec, 
1904. For the first time in six years Mr. J. Eoss 
Robertson had opposition for the presidency in Mr. 
William "Wyndham, of Hamilton. The vote was 49 
for Mr. Robertson, and 22 for Mr. Wyndham. Francis 
Nelson received the first Vice-presidency by acclama- 
tion, and W. A. Hewitt was given the secretaryship, 
and A. W. MePherson the treasurship by the same 

45 



route. D. L. Darroch, CoUingwood, defeated J. W. 
Chowen, of Stratford, for the second vice-presidency 
by 45 to 26. The Executive was elected as follows: — 
J. A. Washburn, Smith's Falls, 59; D. J. Turner, Mid- 
land, 57; Dr. D. J. Sinclair, Woodstock, 49; and F. D. 
Woodworth, Toronto, 39. The President's appointees 
were W. F. Nickle, of Kingston, and J. W. Chowen, 
of Stratford. 

The financial statement for the year showed a bal- 
ance in the treasury of $1,078.12. The receipts totalled 
$2,488.67, made up mainly as follows: Balance from 
preceding year, $1,243.02, and club fees $605.00. The 
disbursements reached $1,410.55. 

YEAR OF 1904-5. « 

There v/ere 88 teams playing this year, 10 senior, 48 
intermediate, and 30 junior. The senior championship 
was, foT the second consecutive year, won by the Marl- 
boros, of Toronto. The series was divided into three 
districts, the winners being Morrisburg in No. 1, 
Smith's Falls in No. 2, and Marlboros in the 3rd. In 
the semi-finals Smith's Falls defeated Morrisburg 
decisively, but lost to Marlboros in the finals. 

There were some unpleasant features connected 
with the final matches. Home and home games were 
first arranged by the Executive and th^ first game was 
played in Toronto, the Marlboros winning by 8 to 3. 
In the return game at Smith's Falls there was con- 
siderable rough pla}' and at half-time the Marlboros 
claimed that only two of their men were able to con- 
tinue, the remainder being incapacitated by reason of 
injuries received during the match. Smith's Falls con- 
tended that as five Marlboro players were playing at 
half time, they should be compelled to put, at least, 
four men on the ice. The upshot of it all was that the 
game did not proceed further, the referee, under the 
very unusual circumstances not giving a decision, but 
leaving the matter entirely in the hands of the Execu- 
tive. The Executive decided to cancel both games, 
and ordered the teams to play a single match on neu- 
tral ice at Peterboro to decide the championship. The 
game was played and Marlboros were victorious by a 
score of 9 to 3. 

The intermediate championship was won by Victoria 
Harbor, who defeated Berlin in the finals by 3 goals. 

46 



The first game was played at Victoria Harbor, tHe 
home team winning by 7 goals to 4. In the return 
game at Berlin the score was a tie, 2 all, so that Vic- 
toria Harbor won the honors by 9 to 6. The district 
winners were as follows: No. 1, Smith's Falls; No. 2, 
Peterboro; No. 3, Markham; No. 4, Orangeville; No. 
5, Welland; No. 6, Victoria Harbor; No. 7, Parry 
Sound; No. 8, Thessalon; No. 9, Gore Bay; No. 10, 
Berlin; No. 11, Stratford (after Woodstock had been 
suspended for importing three iplayers, E. Larose, B. 
McCourt and A. DeGray, from Cornwall); No. 12, 
Goderich. 

The junior championship went to Stratford after a 
hard struggle with St. Andrew's College. Stratford 
won at home by 10 to 3, while the Collegians won in 
Toronto by 7 to 2. Stratford, therefore, won the round 
by 12 to 10. The district winners: No. 1, Queen's III; 
No. 2, Cobourg; No. 3, Uxbridge; No. 4, St. Andrew's 
College; No. 5, Parkdale; No, 6, Owen Sound; No. 7 
and 8, Stratford; No. 9, Gravenhurst; No. 10, Meaford. 

The players of the champion teams and the runners- 
up were as follows: 

Senior (winners): Marlboros — C. K. Tyner, P. Charl- 
ton, H. Armstrong, E. Young, H. T. Birmingham 
(Capt.), B. Eidpath, E. Winchester. 

Eunners-up: Smith's Falls — Le Sueur, Wylde, May, 
Cowan, H. Smith, Serviss, Fraser. 

Intermediate (winners): Victoria Harbor — D. Be-

T. Bronson. 

The 16th annual meeting of the O.H.A. was held at 
the Temiple Building, Saturday, November 11, 1905, 
with President J. Eoss Eobertson in the chair. 

The president's address, reviewing the season's 
work, included the following declarations of principles 
of the Association: 

"We may differ in regard to questions of policy. 
There may be one, two, or a dozen policies for the 

47 



advancement of hockey, and the good government oi 
the O.H.A. There can be only one principle if the 
O.H.A. is an amateur organization. That principle is 
amateurism without reinstatement. 

"The U.H.A. has so 'far navigated a troubled sea, 
and the whole coast line of that sea is strewn with 
the wrecks of organizations that professed amateur- 
ism and practiced expediency. 

"We make no man a professional and no man an 
amateur. The man makes himself a professional and 
the O.H.A. should never unmake him. He goes wrong 
with his eyes open, and must abide by his own choice. 
He chooses his class and should be content to play 
in it." 

In announcing his retirement from the office of 
president, which he had so well filled for six years, 
Mr. Robertson said: 

"The office is not one that can be grouped in the 
sinecure class. No; it is an office that requires a 
watchful eye, a tactful mind, so that decloions well 
digested may prevail, and that in tho varied questions 
that come up for settlement, no injustice may be done 
to even the most humble junior whi. swings a stick in 
the smallest club in the smallest town on the roll of 
this Association. 

"The years I have spent as President of the O.H.A. 
will always be a green spot in my memory — yes, 
pleasant as the thought of summer time amid the 
storms of a winter night. 

"We have a great game — a great country and a 
great empire. If you gentlemen are as great as the 
possibilities of the O.H.A., if we Canadians are as 
great as the possibilities of Canada, and if we Britons 
are as great as the glory of our empire — the flag of 
amateurism in your hands will be as safe from harm 
as the Union Jack was in the hands of your fathers 
and mine." 

By a standing vote, the Association adopted the fol- 
lowing resolution over the retirement of Mr. Robert- 
son from the office he fiUed for the past six years: 

"The Ontario Hockey Association records the high- 
est appreciation of the invaluable services of our 
retiring President, Mr. J. Ross Robertson, who, for the 
past six years, has directed its affairs with such wis- 
dom and energy that it has grown to be the most 

48 



useful, the most powerful and the most respected gov- 
erning body connected with the national winter game. 
His connection with this Association has been a mat- 
ter of pride and profit to us, and will always be remem- 
bered with gratitude and affection, and we feel 
assured that, no matter what his relation to the active 
government of the Association, the orgi*nization will 
always retain his genuine interest and support." 

Vice-President Francis Nelson also retired after 
many years' valuable service to the Association. 

The statement of the Treasurer, A. W. McPherson, 
showed a cash balance of $1,205. The receipts from 
final games were $754.77. 

The following changes in the rules and regulations 
were made: 

No offsides to be declared on the defending side 
taking the puck from the goal-keeper within a space 
of three feet in front of the goal. 

Referees shall be required to measure the goals 
before each game. 

Sticks are to be composed entirely of wood. 

Annual fee raised from $5 to $6 in order to pro- 
vide each club with ten copies of the rule book. 

Date of annual meeting changed from 2nd to 3rd 
Saturday in November. 

Players' certificates are to be issued to all players, 
Senior, Intermediate and Junior. 

Mileage raised from five cents to ten cents for 
eight men, to guard against loss in defaulted games. 

Enforcement of personal service on any of the 
recognized officers of the club, or service by registered 
post on either the president, secretary of a club is to 
be sufficient service in the matter of protests and evi- 
dence in them. 

The contest for the presidency resulted in the elec- 
tion of Mr. D. L. Darroch by 36, to 25 for Dr. C?. K. 
Clarke; J. C. Makins, 1st Vice; F. D. Woodworth, 2nd 
Vice; W. A. Hewitt, Secretary, and A. W. McPherson, 
Treasurer, were elected without opposition. The vote 
for the Executive was: L. Blake Duff, 49; H. D. Jamie- 
son, 35; D. J. Turner, 32; R. J. Burns, 31; H. E. Wett- 
laufer, 31; Mr. Hamilton, 25; Mr. Brebner, 19; and 
Mr. Doyle, 15.

TEAR 1905-6. 

The Association was hampered by a very open win- 
ter, but managed to get all the championships decided. 
There were 85 teams entered; of these, 80 played — ^9 
Senior, 46 Intermediate, and 25 Junior. 

The Senior championship was won by Berlin after 
two great games in the finals with the Argonauts of 
Toronto. These clubs were the winers of their re- 
spective groups, Berlin going through without a single 
defeat, while Argonauts won out after losing the first 
game of the season at Midland. The Berlin and Argo- 
naut teams were very evenly matched. The game in 
Toronto was a tie — one goal each, while Berlin cap- 
tured the return game at home by 4 to 3, thereby 
winning the championship by one goal. Some time 
subsequent to the second match the Argonauts put 
in a claim for consideration on the ground that they 
had not been given credit by the referee for a goal 
which they claimed they scored, and which was not 
allowed by the goal umpire, Mr. Welch, of Stratford. 
The Executive declined to reopen the question, accept- 
ing the referee's report as a finality. 

The Intermediate championship was won by Peter- 
boro, who defeated Goderich by 6 goals in the finals. 
The first game was played at Peterboro, the home team 
winning by 10 to 3. In the return game at Goderich 
the home team won by 5 to 4, so that Peterboro won 
the championship by 14 goals to 8. The district win- 
ners: No. 1, Invincibles, BroPkville; No. 2, Peterboro; 
No. 3, Uxbridge; No. 4, Milton; No. 5, Welland; No. 
6, Berlin II.; No. 7, Stratford; No. 8, Goderich; No. 
9, Alliston; No. 10, Parry Sound; No. 11, Sturgeon 
Falls; No. 12, Gore Bay; No. 13, Orangeville. 

The Junior championship was won by Port Hope, 
who defeated Woodstock in the finals in a sudden- 
death game at Toronto, by 7 goals to 1. The district 
winners were: No. 1, St. George's, Kingston; No. 2, 
Port Hope; No. 3, Lindsay; No. 4, Waterloo; No. 5, 
Woodstock; Nos. 6 and 7, Owen Sound; No. 8, Mid- 
land. 

The players of the champion teams and the run- 
ners-up were as follows: — 

Senior (1906) — Winners, Berlin — J. Mickus, P. 
Charlton, N. Gross, G. Cochrane, W. Knell, J. Mc- 
Qinnis, C. Schmidt.

The Barrie Hockey Club, President H. D. Jamie- 
son, and Manager McLaren, were suspended from 
membership in the Association by virtue of the clause 
in the Constitution which provides for the automatic 
suspension of clubs and members that refuse to accept 
and obey the rulings and decisions of the Executive. 
This arose out of what is known as the Eowe case. 
The player in question, Robert Price Eowe, was granted 
a playing certificate by the sub-committee on the 
strength of a sworn declaration by Eowe that he had 
only participated in two games with the Houghton, 
Mich., club, and those when a boy of 15, before the 
Houghton club had been put under the ban of the 
O.H.A. This was soon ascertained to be untrue, and 
Eowe was suspended by the committee, wi+h the privi- 
lege of appearing before the sub-committee later lin 
the week, to show his innocence if he could. Instead 
of appearing, he took legal action against the Associa- 
tion, with the endorsation and backing of Messrs. 
Jamieson and McLaren. Eowe, being declared a pro- 
fe^ional, was not allowed to again participate in an 
O.H.A. game, and the injunction proceedings eventu- 
ally wound up in favor of the Association, the courts 
ordering the Barrie contingent to pay all costs. 

F. D. Woodworth, 2nd Vice-President, resigned 
during the year, and A. G. Webster, of Toronto, was 
appointed to his place by the Executive. 

The seventeenth annual meeting of the Ontario 
Hockey Association was held at the Temple Building 
on Saturday, November 7th, 1906, with President D. l' 
Darroch in the chair. Other members of the Execu- 
tive present were: Past President J. Eoss Robertson, 

51 



fl. E. Wettlaufer, K. J. Burns, L. Blake Duflf, anu Vv. 
A. Hewitt. 

The annual address of the President and the an- 
nual reports of the Executive Committee and the 
Treasurer, were read and adopted. The Treasurer's 
report showed a balance in the bank of $1,625.74. 

The principal changes were the establishment of the 
Residence Rule as the 1st of August instead of the 
1st of October, and the adoption of a motion making 
playing certificates revocable without notice. 

A rule was passed debarring players from taking 
part in exhibition matches where an admission fee is 
charged, without the sanction of the Executive. 

The affiliation of the O.II.A. with the Canadian 
Amateur Athletic Union was approved of, and the Ex- 
ecutive empowered to act as it thought advisable. 

The immediate Past President was made a member 
of the Executive by virtue of his office, and the voting 
power of clubs was limited to one vote for each club, 
regardless of the number of teams it may have in the 
Association. 

The Executive was given power to issue change of 
residence certificates to players. 

The only change in the playing rules was to remove 
the peremptory requirement of the referee to stop 
play imemdiately on the occurrence of any irregu- 
larity. 

The election of officers resulted as follows: — 

President, D. L. Darroch, Collingwood, acclama- 
tion; immediate Past President, J. Ross Rober«-son; 
1st Vice-President, D. J. Turner, Toronto, acclama- 
tion; 2nd Vice-President, L. B. Duff, Welland^ acclama- 
tion; Treasurer, A. W. McPherscn, Toronto, acclama- 
tion; secretary, W. A. Hewitt, Toronto, acclamation- 
Executive — E. Gould, Midland; H. E. Wettlaufer, Ber- 
lin; A. M. Edwards, Gait; Bert Short, St. George's. 

President Darroch, in his address, said: — 

"What has been done during the year by the offi- 
cers of the Association has been done for the advance- 
ment of the great game of hockey throughout the 
Province, and to keep the sport on the same high 
plane that it occupied during the tenure of office of 
our predecessors. I think I can say, without fear of 
contradiction, that this has been successfully accom- 
plished, and that the name, 'Ontario Hockey Associa- 

52 



tion,' stands for the very highest type of amateur 
sport. To maintain the exalted standard of the Asso- 
ciation has not been the easiest task in the world. 
Those of us who have been entrusted with the burden 
of office have found that our positions were not easy 
ones, but rather seething centres of activity, requiring 
constant vigilance, sincere aplication, and strict ad- 
herence to enunciated principles and firmness of de- 
cision." 

The thanks of the Association were tendered Presi- 
dent Darroch for his bold and unselfish stand for the 
interests of the O.H,A. during the past year. The 
motion was offered by Mr. Nelson and seconded by Mr. 
Robertson. 

The thanks of the Association were voted to Mr. 
Francis Nelson for his efforts on behalf of amateur 
sport. 

YEAE OF 1906-7. 

This was a strenuous season for the Association. 
There were 85 teams in the three series — 10 Senior, 41 
Intermediate, and 34 Junior. The hockey season 
was just about to open when Secretary W. A. Hewitt 
was taken ill, and did not recover until the season was 
over. His work was thrown unexpectedly into the 
hands of J. P. Fitzgerald, who did splendid work, de- 
spite the handicap. A prolonged thaw also mixed 
things up badly. 

The Executive had a lively time with what was 
known as the "Irving charges." The Gu 'ph club 
and management were expelled for professionalism, 
and Mr. N. F. Irving, manager of the Guelph team, 
preferred a long list of vague charges involving a 
number of teams, including Stratford, Gait, Peterboro, 
Midland, Argonauts, Marlboros, St. George's, and 
Lindsay. The charges were, on the whole, largely 
general suspicions. A rigid investigation was in- 
stituted, but nothing definite enough to convic< was 
ascertained. The Berlin club had a player named Mc- 
Ginnis under suspicion, and when he was suspended the 
team turned professional. 

The Senior series opened with five teams in Group 
1, and the name number in Group 2 The Kingston 
team celebrated their first year in the Association by 
capturing the first group, beating Peterboro out

STRATFORD 
Member O.H.A. Executive, 1919-20 



through winning from Midland in Toronto, in a game 
which, according to agreement in schedule, counted 
two. As a protest against the O.H.A. for not giving 
them a chance against Kingston, the Peterboro team 
withdrew from the Association. 

Guelph was maKing a runaway of Group 2 when 
they were expelled. The Berlin, Stratford and St. 
George's were running aeck and neck when the "Fly- 
ing Dutchmen" came to grief on the professional 
rock, leaving Stratford to beat St. George's in a close 
contest. The home-and-home finals were delayed 
through the regrettable death of poor Charlie Eankin 
in a train wreck, but Stratford showed a superiority 
and annexed the John Eoss Eobertson cup. 

The Intermediate series had thirteen groups and 
forty-one teams. Of these, three defaulted. The 
group winners were: Smith's Falls, Cobourg, Port 
Perry, St. George's, Port Golborne, Orangeville, Sim- 
coe, Berlin, Paris, Goderich, Collingwood, Parry 
Sound, Sudbury, and Little Current. In the north, 
Sudbury devoured Little Current, to knuckle in turn 
to Parry Sound, which went down to Collingwood, 
which also trimmed Orangeville, and, later, St. 
George's. The centre saw St. George's beat Simcoe, 
while Berlin whaled Paris and Goderich in turn, and 
in the east Cobourg walloped Port Perry, to drop out 
before Smith's Falls, Collingwood and Berlin, and the 
latter won out. 

The Junior series had nine groups and thirty-four 
teams. The group winners were: Belleville, Lindsay, 
St. Michael's College, Parkdale, Stratford, Paris, 
Markdale, Collingwood and Bracebridge. Ties de- 
veloped in groups 1, 6 and 9, necessitating .playing 
off. Belleville and Picton fought it out to the last 
ditch in Group 1, and the former won, to drop before 
Lindsay, defaulting the return game. St. Michael's Col- 
lege spent their first year in the Association by going 
through the college district without a defeat, and cap- 
tured the series from Parkdale of Group 4, after 
playing a tie in the first two games, and going over- 
time in the deciding contest. Stratford took in Paris, 
while Markdale lost to Collingwood before their in- 
iquities were found out. Bracebridge had a tie to fight 
off with Gravenhurst, to go down and out later. 

Lindsay beat Collingwood, and there were left the 

55 



pair of midgets, Stratford and Lindsay. The finals 
were delayed because of the railway accident, but 
Stratford, who had beaten St. Michael's soundly, as 
easily trounced Lindsay at home and abroad. Lind- 
say, Stratford and St. Michael's went through their 
groups without defeat. 

Markdale and Ingersoll Junior clubs were sus- 
pended for bold violation o^ the regulations. Mark- 
dale's secretary, C. H. Telford, who was a player him- 
self, sent in a false declaration of age, and was ex- 
pelled. Ingersoll played a man on his brother's certifi- 
cate, and the club was suspended. The CoUingwood 
club was suspended for failing to pay monies to the 
Association and the Berlin club. 

The players of the champion clubs and the runners- 
up were as follows: — 

Senior — Stratford, winners — K. MacLaren, C. Rob- 
ers, D. Forbes, W. Hern, A. Killer, C. Lloyd, W. 
Easson. 

14th Kingston, runners-up — Hiscock, J. Richardson, 
Van Home, Potter, Bernier, Powell, G. Richardson. 

Intermediate — Berlin, winners — A. Karges, C. Rose- 
kat, V. E. Cochrane, J. Brinkert, L. M. Watson, J. M. 
Cochrane, F. Roschman. 

Runners-up, CoUingwood — ^Law, Newbold, Cameron, 
Wright, Fryer, Collins, Belcher. 

Junior — Stratford, winners — R. Rankin, W. Rich- 
ards, Ramsay Rankin, F. Simpson, F. Rankin, J. Pres- 
ton, R. Dunbar. 

Lindsay, runners up — Newton, Koyl, Sullivan, Stod- 
dart, McDougall, Randall, Cotey. 

The 18th annual meeting of the Association was 
held in the Temple Building, Saturday, November 16th, 
1907, with Vice-President D. J. Turner in the chair, in 
the absence of President D. L. Darroch. Mr. Dar- 
roeh's address was a splendid review of the previous 
season. 

During the season the O.K. A. had cause to mourn 
one of its most efficient referees in the death of 
Charlie Rankin, of Stratford, who was killed while re- 
turning from a hockey game in Toronto, in a terrible 
wreck near Berlin. 

The report of the Treasurer, Dr. A. W. McPherson, 
showed a balance of $1,451.75. The receipts from the 
final games were $646.95.

I 



The following resolution was unanimously carried: 
» "That in view of the invaluable services to the 
Association and the game of hockey by Mr. J. Boss 
Robertson, for six years President of the Association, 
he be elected a life member of the Association and of 
the Executive." 

It was also decided to make the C.A.A.U. repra- 
sentative a member of the Executive, Mr. Francis Nel- 
son continuing in that capacity. 

YEAE OF 1907-8. 

There were 81 teams in the three series this season, 
and they provided a splendid winter of hockey. Of 
these, 7 played Senior, 45 Intermediate, and 30 Junior. 

In the Senior series there were three teams in 
group No. 1, and four teams in group No. 2. A tie 
developed in group No. 1, between the 14th Regiment 
team of Kingston and the St. George's of Toronto. 
In the play-off the Kingston soldiers won, and went up 
against Stratford, who had again won their group in 
handy fashion in the finals. Home-and-home games 
were played, and the 14th not only captured the cham- 
pionship, but also achieved the distinction of winning 
both games, the score at Kingston being 4 to 2, and at 
Stratford 9 to 7 in their favor. 

The Intermediate series had eleven groups, and 
forty-five teams started the season. The group win- 
ners were: 41st Regiment of Brockville, Lindsay, Port 
Perry, Simcoe, London, Preston, Collingwood, Midland, 
Sudbury, Hamilton, and St. Catharines. In the second 
round Lindsay beat Brockville, Hamilton defeated St. 
Catharines, London won from Simcoe, and Midland 
beat Sudbury. Port Perry, Collingwood and Preston 
drew byes. 

In the third round Lindsay won from Port Perry, 
London beat Preston, Collingwood trimmed Hamilton 
(after an extra game, due to the temporary suspension 
of Tom Collins), and Midland drew a bye. In the 
semi-finals, Collingwood beat London, and Midland de- 
feated Lindsay. 

The finals developed a unique situation. Colling- 
wood won the first game at home by 12 to 8, and Mid- 
land captured the return game by 7 to 3, thus creating 
a tie on the round, the first in O.H.A. finals since 1903, 
when Marlboros of Toronto and Frontenac Beech- 

57 



groves of Kingston played two tie games in the junior 
finals. In 1902 Upper Canada College and Stratferd 
also played two tie games in the junior finals. A de- 
ciding game was played on neutral ice at Orillia, 
Midland coming out victorious after a hard-fought 
and exceedingly well-played game by a score of 8 to 
5. This was Collingwood's second consecutive year 
as runners-up, while it was Midland's first cham- 
pionship. Midland made a splendid showing, only 
losing one game during tho season, and that in the 
finals. 

The Junior series, as usual, had many interesting 
features. There were 30 teams, divided into 9 groups 
The group winners were: Kingston, St. George's, Pic- 
ton, St. Michael's College,. Eurekas of Toronto, Strat- 
ford, Paris, Barrie, Midland, and Gravenhurst. Mid- 
land had a tie with Victoria Harbor for district hon- 
ors, out came out victorious. 

The second round saw some big surprises. Barrie 
lost the Drst game at Gravenhurst by 15 to 2, but won 
the round by four goals, scoring 20-3 at home. Picton 
land the Kingston St. George's away. Stratford won 
from Paris, and St. Michael's beat Eurekas after a 
couple of the hardest games on record. In the next 
round Stratford, fet. Michael's and Picton drew byes, 
while Barrie and Midland settled the championship of 
the north. Midland won the first game at home by 
11-3, but Barrie made another phenomenal finish, and 
at home reversed the score 9-1, tieing the round. On 
neutral ice at Orillia, Midland won by a single goal. 

In the semi-finals Stratford beat Midland, though 
the latter played them a tie game — 6 all — on Stratford 
ice, and St. Michael's won from Picton, defeating 
them in both games. 

The final resulted in an overwhelming victory for 
Stratford, though St. Michael's won by a single goal 
on Toronto ice. At Stratford, though, the home team 
had a big margin, the score being 21-4, and therefore 
captured the championship with ease. 

The Hamilton team protested Collingwood, charg 
ing that Tom Collins had been paid for playing three 
games with Portage la Prairie in 1905. Collins was 
suspended on suspicion, and, so as not to delay the 
series, Collingwood was ordered to play Hamilton in 
Toronto. Later on, Collins produced evidence refuting 

58 



the charges made against him, and was restored to good 
standing, playing after that one game against London 
and three against Midland. 

John Wiggins, a player of the Goderich team, was 
expelled for life for assaulting a referee u.l Clinton, 
and the team was suspended for their share in the riot 
that followed. The referee is the official representa- 
tive of me Association at all games, and must, and 
will, receive absolute protection. His authority can- 
not be questioned by any club or player, as he is di- 
rectly responsible to the Association itself. 

The players of the champion clubs, and the run- 
ners-up, were as follows: 

Senior — Winners, 14th Kingston — E. Hiscock, J. 
Powell, G. Van Home, K. Crawford, A. Bernier, T. E. 
Kennedy, G. Eichardson. 

Eunners-up, Stratford — McLaren, Forbes, Eamsay 
Eankin, Hern, Edmunds, Baker, Easson. 

Intermediate — Winners, Midland — F. Cook, J. Han-. 
ley, A. McLennan, E. C. Gould, E. Switzer, F. Chase, 
W. Beatty, H. Hastings. 

Eunners-up, Coilingwood — Hammond, Cameron, T. 
Collins, Belcher, Bums, Freyer, Prebble. 

Junior— Winners, Stratford — E. Eankin, W. Eich- 
ards, Jas. Preston, F. Eankin, B. Borland, D. Brad- 
shaw, E. Dunbar. 

Eunners-up, St. Michael's College — Doheny, Tim- 
mins, Dissette, McCool, Laflamme, Bulger, Kelly. 

The annual meeting was held at the Temple Build- 
ing, Toronto, on Saturday, Nov. 2L President Dwight 
J. Turner was in the chair. 

This amendment, by J. Eoss Eobertson, was' car- 
ried: 

"No member of the Executive shall be eligible to 
serve on the ExeciTtive or on any committee in con- 
nection with any protest or question involving directly 
or indirectly the club he represents, nor shall any mem- 
ber of the Executive be eligible to vote on any ques- 
tion raised by or affecting the club he represents." 

Francis Nelson moved that "A Junior certificate 
used in Intermediate matches, or an Intermediate cer- 
tificate used in Senior matches, shall have the date and 
occasion of such use written across the face by the re- 
feree, and two such uses shall cancel such certificate for 
the series for which they were issued." 

59 



W. A. Hewitt's amendment in regard to defaults 
was carried. It was as follows: "A club defaulting 
any match in the series shall be debarred from further 
competition in the series; all scheduled matches played 
by such club shall be counted as played, and all un- 
played matches shall count as wins to the team sched- 
uled against the culb defaulting." 

It was decided that the Executive shall have no 
power to refund protest fees. 

A motion to have club secretaries furnish complete 
lists of membership was defeated. 

It was decided that when clubs are tied on the 
round in two club groups on home ice, the tie shall be 
played off in the second game. 

The following resolution was carried unanimously: 
Moved by Louis Duff Blake, seconded by J. Ross Rob- 
ertson, "That the Ontario Hockey Association, in 
annual convention assembled, desires to place on record 
its high appreciation of the services of Dr. A. W. 
McPherson as Treasurer of this Association, and re- 
greats that circumstances have rendered it advisable on 
his part to no longer accept office in this Association. 
Mr. McPherson has been Treasurer from 1903-4 until 
to-day, and his work has been of a most superior qual- 
ity, and he has played his own part in creating the 
gratifying success of the O.H.A. The O.H.A. will 
never have a more careful, efficient and reliable Treas- 
urer than Dr. McPherson." 

Mr. Moody was elected as Dr. McPherson 's suc- 
cessor without opposition. There was a tie for fourth 
place on the Executive Committee, between Mr. Han- 
ley and Mr. Dyment, with 26 votes apiece. The three 
elected on the first ballot were: Mr. Farquharson, Mr. 
Irving, and Mr. Rule, with 30, 28 an^ 27 votes, respec- 
tively. On another vote for fourttl place, Mr. Dyment 
was elected by one vote. The complete list of officers: 
President, Dwight J. Turner, Toronto; Past President, 
D. L. Darroch, Calgary; Life Member, J. Ross Rob- 
ertson, Toronto; C.A.A.U. Governor, Francis Nelson, 
Toronto; 1st Vice-President, L. Blake Duff, Welland; 
2nd Vice-President, H. E. Wettlaufer, Berlin; Secre- 
tary, W. A. Hewitt; Treasurer, R. A. E. Moody, To- 
ronto; Ijxecutive — Charles Farquharson, Stratford; W. 
P. Irving, London; Norman Rule, Collingwood; John 
Dyment, Barrie.

YEAR OF 1908-9. 

This was another fine year. There were 89 teams 
entered — 5 Senior, 45 Intermediate, and 38 Junior. 
There were no less than 10 ties in 24 districts. 

St. Michael's College, of Toronto, with a young 
team, fresh from the junior ranks, won the Senior 
championship, defeating Kingston 14th Regiment in 
finals by 11 to 8, at Toronto, and 12 to 9 at Kingston, 
a total of 23 to 17 on the round. 

In the Senior series there were two teams in group 
No. 1, and three teams in group No. 2. St. Michael's 
College cleaned up the honor in No. 1, winning easily 
from the Simcoes, also of Toronto, in a double sched- 
ule. In group No. 2, a tie developed between the 14th 
Regiment of Kingston and Toronto A.A.C. Home-and- 
home games were played, and the Kingston soldiers 
came out victorious. They expected little difficulty in 
retaining the championship which they had won the 
year \»efore, but St. Michael's College upset all calcu- 
lations by beating them decisively, not only in To- 
ronto, but on Kingston ice as well. 

There were 44 teams in the Intermediate series, 
comprising eleven districts. The group winners were 
as follows: Lindsay, Port Perry, Toronto Rowing 
Club, Milton, Niagara Centrals of St. Catharines, Gait, 
Stratford, Brantford, Ingersoll, Wiarton, and Colling- 
wood. In 5 of the 11 districts there were ties for the 
championship, viz.: Lindsay and Peterboro, Niagara 
Centrals and Niagara Falls, Stratford and Goderich, 
Ingersoll and Simcoe, and CoUingwood and Midland. 

Three games were found necessary to decide the 
winners between Niagara Centrals and Niagara Falls. 
In the second round Toronto Rowing Club defeated 
Port Perry, Midto^yyi beat '€ralt, Ingersoll won from 
Brantford, and Wiarton beat CoUingwood. Lindsay, 
Stratford and Niagara Centrals drew byes. In the 
next round Lindsay beat Toronto Rowing Club, Inger- 
soll beat Milton, and Stratford beat Wiarton. Niagara 
Centrals, having still their district to win, drew an- 
other bye. 

The semi-finals brought together Lindsay and Ni- 
agara Centrals, and Ingersoll and Stratford. Lindsay 
scored an easy victory over the St. Catharines team in 
a sudden-death game at Toronto, while Ingersoll and 
Stratford, having tied on the round in home-and-home 

61 



games, were ordered to play a sudden-death game in 
Brantford, Stratford eventually winning out. The 
final was another great struggle between Lindsay and 
Stratford. Both games were desperately contested, 
but Lindsay showed their superiority by winning at 
home by 7 to 2, and at Stratford by 5 to 3, a total of 
12 goals to 5. 

The Junior series, with 38 teams, divided into 11 
districts, provided a great season of hockey for the 
youngsters. The group winners were as follows: 14th 
Regiment of Kingston, Picton, Whitby, Eureka A., Ber- 
lin, Mount Forest High School, Stratford, Orangeville, 
Barrie, Midland, and Haileybury. Ties developed in 
four districts, between whitby and Port Hope, Moui-t 
Forest High School and Listowel, Stratford and 
Woodstock, and Midland and Gravenhurst. Three 
extra games were necessary to decide the winner of 
the Mount Forest-Listowel group. In the second 
round Picton beat 14th Regiment, Berlin defeated 
Mount Forest, Eurekas beat Orangeville, and Barrie 
won from Midland. Stratford and Haileybury drew 
byes. In the next round Eurekas beat Picton, Strat- 
ford won from Berlin, and Barrie beat Haileybury. In 
the semi-finals Stratford drew the bye and Eurekas 
defeated Barrie. 

The final games between Stratford and Eurekas 
were magnificent contests, the game in Toronto result- 
ing in favor of Stratford by 7 to 6, while they also 
won at home by 6 to 5, a total of 13 to 11 on the 
round, the closest of any of the series. This was Strat- 
ford's third consecutive win of the Junior champion- 
ship. 

The champion players and runners up were as fol- 
lows: ^ . ; 

Senior series — Winners, St. "^lichael 's College — 
Thompson Timmins, Dissette, Roche, Laflamme, Rich- 
ardson, Lowes. 

Runners-up — 14th Regiment, Kingston — Hiscock, J. 
Richardson, Powell, Crawford, Bernier, Davidson, G. 
Richardson. 

Intermediate — Winners, Lindsay — Newton, Koyl, 
Sullivan, Stoddart, Randall, Cotey, Blomfield. 

Runnera-UD — Stratford — Rankin, Forbes, Dunbar, 
Easson, Simpson, Verner, Barlow. 

62 



Junior — Winners, Stratford — Dillon, Richards, Pres- 
ton, F. Rankin, Borland, Bradshaw, Simpson. 

Runners-up — Eurekas, Toronto — Shank, Kyle, Mc- 
Eachren, Lane, McCreath, Matthews, Pridham. 

The 20th annual meeting was held at the Temple 
Building, Toronto, on Saturday, November 20th, with 
President Dwight J. Turner in the chair. The acting 
Treasurer's report showed a cash balance of $2,396.97. 
Treasurer Moody resigned during the year. Mr. Hewitt 
presented the report. 

A motion was adopted to reduce the maximum age 
in the Junior series from 20 to 19, the same not to go 
into force until the season of 1910-11. It was decided 
uO get suitable Intermediate and Junior trophies. A 
suggestion that all Junior games be played in quarters 
was defeated. The following officers were elected by 
acclamation: President, L. Blake Duff; 1st Vice-Presi- 
dent, H. E. Wettlaufer; 2nd Vice-President, Chas. Far- 
quharson; C.A.A.U. Representative, Francis Nelson; 
Secretary, W. A. Hewitt; Treasurer, Dr. W. G. "Wood. 
Following was the vote for the Executive: J. Dyment, 
25; K. Casselman, 21; Rev. A. F. Barr, 19; Dr. A. W. 
McPherson, 18; Bert Short, 16; Dr. S. A. Weismiller, 
7; H. J. C. Burgess, 6. 

The following amendment was carried unanimously: 
"Each captain must wear a four-inch armlet, distinc- 
tive in color from the color of his sweater, marked 
with the letter C, and to be worn on the right arm be- 
tween the elbow and the shoulder, to distinguish him 
from the other players." 

The following amendment was carried: "Moved 
by L. Blake Duff, seconded by John Dyment, That this 
convention recognizes that the Junior and Interme- 
diate cups are not fit trophies to be held by our cham- 
pion teams in these, series, "and a recommendation is 
hereby given to the Executive to take the matter into 
consideration, and to take such action as it may pro- 
perly do to secure trophies suitable and aproprfate to 
the respective series." 

The new President, Mr. Duff, then took the chair, 
and made a very strong speech of acceptance, which 
was greeted with loud applause. A vote of thanks to 
the retiring President, Mr. Turner, was moved by Mr. 
Robertson, and carried unanimously by a standing 
vote.

YEAE OF 1909-10. 

The season of 1909-10 was from every point of view 
the most successful ever held in the history of the 
Association. There were 89 teams entered in the three 
series, St. Michael's winnig the Senior championship 
from a field of 11, Collingwood the Intermediate 
against 41 elubs, and Kingston Frontenac, the Junior, 
with 37 opponents. 

The Senior champions of the O.H.A. brought further 
glory on themselves and the Association by winning 
the Sir Montagu Allan Cup, emblematic of the Senior 
Amateur Championship of Canada, and afterwards 
successfully defending it at a few days' notice. St. 
Michael's had to battle for their lives to win the 
championship of their own Association, but they went 
right into the camp of the enemy and captured the 
trophy, defeating Queen's University team in Kings- 
ton by 5 to 4, on Wednesday, March 19. Three days 
later St. Michael's defended the cup in Toronto by de- 
feating the Sherbrooke team, the St. Lawrence League 
champions, by 8 to 3. This left St. Michael's undis- 
puted champions of Canada, Queen's having previously 
beaten the Ottawa Clififsides, the Inter-Provincial 
champions, for the trophy. 

In the Senior series there were three teams each in 
groups Nos. 2, 3, and 4, while Stratford and Kingston 
Frontenacs had a bye in groups Nos. 1 and 5. In group 
No. 3 there was a three-cornered tie between Parkdale 
Canoe Club, University of Toronto, and Toronto A. A, 
C, the ultimate winner being the Parkdale club. The 
Argonauts won in group No. 2, and in the second round 
defeated the Frontenars both in Kingston and in To- 
ronto. St. Michael's CoUoge won i^ffroup No. 4 with- 
out losing a game, but in the play^Wiwith Stratford in 
the second round there were two great games, a tie, 8 
all, at Stratford, and 4-3 in Toronto in favor of St. 
Michael's. Parkdale disposed of the Argonauts after 
two gruelling battles by one goal, which they scored 
just ten seconds before the call of time. 

St. Michael's and Parkdale had a grand struggle 
for the championship. The first game was a tie — 4 all 
— and the second game went 20 minutes overtime before 
St. Michael's scored the winning goal, thereby defend- 

64 



ing the John Ross Eabertson Cup they had won the 
year before. 

There were 41 teams in the Intermediate series, 
comprising 12 districts. The group winners were as 
follows: Group No. lA, Trenton; Group No. IB, Lind- 
say; Group No. 2, Cobourg; Group No. 'd, Newmarket; 
Gjoup No. 4, Drumbo; Group No. 5, Milton; Group 
No. 6, St. Catharines; Group No. 7, Paris; Group No. 
8, London; Group No. 9, Goderich; Group No. 10, 
Sarnia; Group No. 11, Wiarton; Group No. 12, Cilling- 
wood. In four districts there were ties for the cham- 
pionship, viz.: Cobourg and Whitby, Newmarket and 
St. Paul's of Toronto, Milton, Preston and Guelph 
Lyons; Sarnia, Watford and Strathroy. Wiarton and 
Collingwood won their districts by default of Owen 
Sound and Midland. 

In the second round Collingwood beat Wiarton, 
London won from St. Catharines, Trenton defeated 
Lindsay, Cobourg beat Milton, and Drumbo laid Paris 
away. Goderich drew a bye. 

In the third round Collingwood won from New- 
market, London defeated Sarnia, Goderich beat Drum- 
bo, and Cobourg put Trenton out. 

In the semi-finals Collingwood beat Cobourg and 
London defeated Goderich. In the first series of home- 
and-home games Goderich won by one goal, but the 
game at Goderich was successfully protested, and or- 
dered replayed, the teams tieing on the round. The 
play-off took place at Stratford, London winning by 5 
goals to 2. 

The finals between Collingwood and London furn- 
ished two excellent games, though the teams were 
handicapped at London by ^oft, watery ice. Colling- 
wood was beaten at -London by 6 to 4, but won the 
return. game at home by 5 to 1, thereby having a two- 
goal margin on the round. London made a most stub- 
born defence, and it was not until near the expiration 
of time that the championship was won. This was the 
first championship for Collingwood, though, in 1907 and 
1908, they were runners-up. 

As usual, the Junior series, with 38 teams, divided 
into 12 districts, produced some great hockey, and the 
record of the Preston club, runners-up for the cham- 
pionship, will not likely be equalled for many years to 
come.

LINDSAY 

Membtr O.H.A. Executive 191il-.i0. 



The group winners were as follows: Group No. li 
Kingston Frontenacs; Group No. 2, Oshawa; Group 
No. 3, Peterboro Collegiate; Group No. 4, Siracoes A. 
of Toronto; Group No. 5, St. Michael's College; Group 
No. 6, Preston; Group No. 7, London; Group No. 8, 
Markdale; Group No. 9, Barrie; Group No. 10 A., Grav- 
enhurst; Group No. lOB., Midland; Group No. 11, Ni- 
agara Falls; Group No. 12, Markham. To win their 
group championship, Preston had to play 60 minutes 
overtime in the second game with Berlin. Markham 
and Niagara Falls drew byes owing to their late en- 
trance in the series. In Group No. lOA. there was a 
three-cornered tie between Gravenhurst, Braeebridge 
and Huntsville. 

In the second round Kingston beat Oshawa, Barrie 
won from Markdale, Simcoes A. defeated Niagara Falls, 
Markham beat Peterboro Collegiate, Preston won from 
London, and Gravenhurst beat Midland. Kingston 
was compelled to replay its first game with Oshawa 
owing to the ineligibility of one of its players, who 
was successfully protested by Oshawa. 

In the third round Kingston defeated Markham, 
Simcoes A. won from St. Michael's College, Barrie beat 
Gravenhurst, and Preston put London out. An extra 
game was necessary for Preston to beat London, the 
teams having been tied on the round in the home-and- 
home games. Barrie and Simcoes A. were protested 
by Gravenhurst and St. Michael's, and the games 
ordered replayed on the protests being sustained. Grav- 
enhurst then defaulted to Barrie, while Simcoes A. won 
the round from St. Michael's. 

In the semi-finals Kingston defeated Simcoes A., 
and Preston won from Barrie after one of the most sen- 
sational series of games on record. It took four and 
a half games to beat Barrie. The teams were tied on 
the round in home-and-home games, and in the first 
play-off at Toronto went thirty minutes overtime to a 
tie, when the lights went out at midnight. In the 
fourth game Preston put Barrie out of the running. 
Previous to the Preston-Barrie series the record for 
O.H.A. hockey was held by the Frontenac-Beechgroves 
of Kingston and the Marlboros of Toronto in the final 
for the Junior championship in 1903. The teams were 
tie in home-and-home games, and in the play-off at 
Port Hope went eighty minutes overtime before the 

67 



Marlboros got the decision. Thus the total in this 
series was four and a third games of sixty minutes 
each, against four and a half in the Preston-Barrie 
series. The scores are worthy of reproduction: 

At Barrie — ^Preston 8, Barrie 6. 

At Barrie — ^Barrie 9, Preston 7. 

At Toronto, first game — Preston 2, Barrie 2 (three 
overtime periods). 

At Toronto, second game — Preston 4, Barrie 2. 

Total on four games — Preston 21, Barrie 19. 

The final games between Kingston and Preston for 
the championship weJe great struggles, and were wit- 
nessed by record crowds in both places. The first 
game, at Preston, resulted in favor of the home team 
by 6 to 3, and the three-goal lead seemed enough to 
win the championship in the return game at Kingston, 
but the Frontenacs made a sensational finish and 
scored 3 goals in the last six minutes of play, winning 
the round and the championship by 8 goals to 7. The 
goal that decided the location of the cup for the year 
was scored just 40 seconds before the expiration of 
time. 

The players of the champion teams and the runners- 
up were as follows: 

Senior — Winners, St. Michael's College — W. Thomp- 
son, P. Spratt, Jas. Dissette, C. E. Roche, W. J. La- 
fljamme, H. Matthews, Wm. Richardson. 

Runners-up — Parkdale Canoe Club — Wallace, Kyle, 
Lawson, Lane, Rennie, Hunter, Bidpath. 

Intermediate — Winners, Collingwood — F. Cook, B.

hardt, Mallen, Orr, Prodgers, Carrothers. 

Juniors — Winners, Kingston Frontenacs — R. W.

B. Hunt, R. Somerville, Leo. Millan. 

Runners-up — Preston — Short, Bowman, Rahn, Walk- 
er, Beith, Scherer, Sullivan. 

The largest cash balance in cha history of the As- 
sociation, $2,948.93, wag reported by the Treasurer, Dr. 
Wood. The Association took in $636 in fees, and 
$828.51 in their share of the final games. The expenses 
totalled $1,062.65. 

At the 21st annual meeting of the Association, 

68 



held at the Temple Building on Saturday, Nov. 19th, 
1910, President Louis Blake Duff, of Welland, occupied 
the chair. 

J. Eoss Robertson presented two handsome cups to 
the Association for competition in the Intermediate 
and Junior series, and to be known as the J. Ross Rob- 
ertson Intermediate and Junior Cups. 

It was moved by Francis Nelson, seconded by Rev. 
A. F. Barr: "That the annual convention of the On- 
tario Hockey Association endorses the President's 
acceptance of the J. Eoss Robertson Intermediate and 
Junior trophies, and tenders its heartiest appreciation 
and gratitude to their generous donor, whose increas- 
ing interest has done so much for the Association, for 
the game, and for the spirit of sport throughout 
Canada." 

It was decided to retain the age limit of 20 years, 
and to compel all Junior players to furnish official 
declarations of their ages before being granted cer- 
tificates. Conveners will be required to give 24 hours' 
notice of meetings. It was decided to make the fee 
for referees $5, and an allowance of 10 cents per mile 
one way for all distances, with a minimum of $8 for 
fee and expenses, except where a local referee acts. The 
honorarium of the Secretary was increased from $400 
to $500. 

The following officers were re-elected by acclama- 
tion: President, L. B. Duff; 1st Vice-President, H. E. 
Wettlaufer; 2nd Vice-President, Chas. F?rquharson; 
Secretary, W. A. Hewitt; Treasurer, Dr. "W. G. Wood. 

For the Executive the following vote was cast: 
Kenneth Casselman, 41; Rev. A. F. Barr, 38; Norman 
Rule, 34; H. J. Sterling, 34; R. M. Glover, 22; John 
Dyment, 11. The first four were elected. Mr. Sterl- 
ing was moved to Winnipeg before the season opened, 
and the Executive appointed Jas. Sinclair, of Wood- 
stock, in his stead. R. M. Glover and Jas. T. Suther- 
land were apointed to the Executive by President 
Duff. 

Mr. Robertson moved the following resolution, 
which was carried unanimously: 

"That the Ontario Hockey Association, assembled 
in its twenty-first annual convention, sends its mes- 
sage of greeting and good wishes to our former Presi- 
dent, Mr. D. L. Darroch, and expresses the hope that 

69 



he may soon be restored to his wonted health and 
strength — this in remembrance of his long and faithful 
service to our noble game." 

YEAR OF 1910-11. 

The season of 1910-11, the twenty-first year of the 
Association, which was most succesrsful, opened on De- 
cember 28th, and continued steadily until March 7th, 
exactly ten weeks and one day, without cessation, 
nearly 300 games being necessary to determine the 
various championships. The winter was steady in most 
parts of the Province, and the schedules were complet- 
ed promptly and on time. The final games were com- 
menced on Wednesday, March 1st, and concluded on 
Monday, March 7th, all six games being played on per- 
fect ice and before capacity crowds. There were many 
surprises, only the Junior champions repeating. St. 
Michael's College and Collingwood, last year's Senior 
and Intermediate champions, did not get out of their 
own groups- 
There were 88 teams entered in the three series. Of 
these, 8 played in the Senior, 38 in the Intermediate, 
and 42 in the Junior. In the Senior series there were 
three groups. Group No. 1 was won by the Argonauts, 
who defeated University of Toronto in both games. 
In group No. 2 there were three teams — Parkdale, St. 
Michael's College and Stratford. The district pro- 
duced some great hockey, and witnessed the downfall 
of the champion St. Michael's, who were beaten in 
both games by Parkdale, the winners of the district. 
Batons won the honors in group No. 3 from Toronto 
A. A. C. and Toronto Rowing Club without losing a 
game. Batons drew a bye in the semi-final, and Argo- 
nauts put Parkdale out of the running, though the first 
game was a tie. Batons and Argonauts had a keen 
struggle for the championship, and the J. Ross Robert- 
son Senior Cup. The first game was a tie — 3 goals all 
— but in the second game, Batons showed their super- 
iority and won a hard-fought contest by 7 goals to 4, 
thereby capturing the round and the championship by 
10 goals to 7. 

There were 38 teams in the Intermediate series, 
comprising 11 districts. The group winners were as 
follows: Group No. 1, Trenton; Group No. 2, Whitby; 
Group No. 3, Markham; Group No. 4, Broadviews; 

70 



Group No. 5, Grimsby; Group No. 6, Drumbo; Group 
No. 7, Preston; Group No. 8, Listowel; Group No. 9, 
Watford (by the disqualification and expulsion of Ghat- 
ham); Group No. 10, London; Group No. 11, Midland. 
In three districts there were ties for the champion- 
ship, viz: Trenton and Peterboro; Listowel, Stratford 
and St. Mary's; Chatham and Watford. 

In the second round Whitby beat Markham, Mid- 
land won from Broadviews, Preston defeated Drumbo, 
and London put Grimsby away. Trenton, Listowel and 
Chatham drew byes. 

In the third round Whitby beat Trenton, Preston 
disposed of Listowel, and London won from Chatham. 
Chatham, however, tried some crooked work, and were 
summarily expelled, Watford being given another 
chance by the sub-committee. Midland drew a bye. 

In the semi-finals Preston beat London handily, and 
also disposed of Watford in a game on neutral ice, 
while Midland defeated Whitby in two close games. 

The final games between Preston and Midland 
aroused tremendous interest, and were keenly con- 
tested. Preston won the first game at home by 6 goals 
to 3, and Midland had to make a tremendous up-hill 
fight to win by 7 to 6 on their own ice. Preston, there- 
fore, won the round by 12 goals to 10, and became the 
first winners of the J. Eoss Eobertson Intermediate 
Cup. 

The Junior series had the largest entry on record 
in the history of the Association, 42 teams playing in 
13 districts. 

The group winners were as follows: Group No. 1, 
Kingston Frontenacs; Group No. 2, Oshawa; Group 
No. 3, Peterboro; Group No. 4, Toronto Canoe Club; 
Group No. 5, University of Toronto; Group No. 6, 
Upper Canada College; Group No. 7, West Toronto 
Victorias; Group No. 8, Preston; Group No. 9, London; 
Group No. 10, Seaforth; Group No. 11, Orillia; Group 
No. 12, Chesley; Group No. 13, Collingwood. There 
were three ties for district honors, viz.: University of 
Toronto and Argonauts, Woodstock and London; Oril- 
lia, Penetang, Midland. 

In the second round Frontenacs beat Peterboro, 
Oshawa won from Upper Canada, Toronto Canoe Club 
defated Collingwood, Seaforth put Chesley out, Orillia 
retired the University of Toronto team, and Preston 

71 



beat West Toronto Victorias. London drew a bye. 
The Frontenac-Peterboro games were replayed owing 
to the ineligibility of Kay Marchand of Kingston. 

In the third round Frontenacs def^ated Oshawa, 
Orillia won from Toronto Canoe Club, Seaforth beat 
London, and Preston drew a bye. 

In the fourth round Frontenacs and Orillia drew 
byes, Preston put Seaforth out. In the semi-finals 
Orillia won from Preston, while Frontenacs were idle. 

Frontenacs and Orillia met in the finals, and the 
Northerners furnished one of the big surprises of a 
season of surprises by winning from the Kingston 
champions on Orillia ice by 6 to 5. However, in the 
return game at Kingston, the Frontenacs showed their 
superiority, and won by 16 goals to 5, thereby winning 
the championship for the second time in succession, 
and becoming the first possessors of the new J. Ross 
Robertson Junior Cup. 

The champion teams and runners-up were as fol- 
lows:

7t 



The Markdale club failed to defend a protest en 
tared by Wiarton in regard to tK? eligibility of a 
player named B. E. Fletcher under the residence rule, 
and were suspended. Chesley afterwards protested 
Wiarton for playing George Sinimie and George Solo- 
mon, neither of whom was eligible, and the Wiarton 
club was suspended. In both of these cases the trans- 
gression was due to an imperfect knowledge of the 
rules of the Association. Trenton protested Peterboro 
Intermediates, and the game of January 24 was ordered 
replayed, a certificate having been issued to Maurice 
Park, a Peterboro school teacher, under a misappre- 
hension of the facts. Park's certificate was cancelled. 
The Ayr club entered a protest against Drumbo, ques- 
tioning the residence qualifications of some of the 
Drumbo players, but withdrew it after hearing the 
previous ruling of the committee. 

The Simcoe, Ont., club was suspended for leaving 
the ice December 30 at Simcoe in their first game with 
London, because several of the players disagreed with 
the referee's ruling on a question of fact. The Brace- 
bridge club was suspended for playing David Jocque, 
an ineligible player. The Baden club was also suspend- 
ed for failure to furnish the Association with proof of 
the residence qualifications of J. V. Arnold, one of 
their players. Expulsion was the punishment meted 
out to the Chatham club for crooked work in their 
final game of the season and also for having players 
on their team not properly qualified under the resi- 
dence rule. Arthur D. McLean and Daniel McDonald, 
of Goderich, who played under assumed names for 
Chatham against London, were also expelled. John M. 
McCoig wag President, and F. C. Smyth, Secretary cf 
the Chatham club, and the players were as follows: 
H. Dennis, K. Marges, Norman Glidner, C. Brundage, 
E. C. Briscoe, Clarence E. Stringer, H. C. Higgin- 
botham, H. Gowan, W. C. Livingstone, Earl Miers, W. 
Gemmell, Miller Begley and K. H. McKae. The Tren- 
ton club was allowed a claim of $21.50 against the 
Belleville club, and the Drumbo club one of $15.55 
from New Hamburg club. 

The Allan Cup, which was won and defended by the 
St. Michael's College team at the end of the season of 
1909-10, after winnig the Ontario Hockey Association 
championship, was not played for last season by our 

73 



champions. The trustees, contrary to the terms of 
their own deed of gift, ordered St. Michael's to defend 
the cup on February 20 and 22 against the Victorias 
of Winnipeg, whose championship season had ended 
before the 2nd of February. The St. Michael's had 
not won their 0. H. A. district and it was manifestly 
unfair and in direct contravention of the Allan Cup 
deed of gift to make such an order. St. Michael's de- 
clined to play under advice of the sub-committee, and 
the trustees, after much correspondence, notified the 
0. H. A. that the cup had been awarded to Winnipeg. 
The 0. H. A. disputed the authority of the trustees to 
make any such ruling or order and retained possesion 
of the cup, inviting the trustees to test the matter in 
the courts. 

The 0. H. A. contention was that the trustees, as 
well as the cup holders, were bound by Section 2 of 
the deed of gift, which says: "The cup is to be com- 
peted for only at the end of a season between clubs 
having won the championship of some recognized 
league or association in Canada." 

As a matter of fact, that was the ruling of the trus- 
tees themselves, who, in 1909, refused to allow a chal- 
lenge from St. Michael's College to hold over until the 
following season, on the ground that St. Michael's 
might not be the champions of the 0. H. A. the next 
season, or Queen's (the holders) champions of the In- 
ter-collegiate. 

It is worthy of note that the first game for the 
cup in 1909 was played on Match 16. In 1910 the 
first game for the cup was played on March 12, with 
subsequent games on March 16th and 19th. This year 
the O. H. A. concluded its championship season on 
March 4, and notified the trustees that the cup holders 
would be willing to meet all comers after thai; date. 
As a matter of fact, St. Michael's failed to win their 
group, and if the Allan Cup games had been played as 
ordered it would not have been a test of the represent- 
ative 8trength of the Association, nor would it have 
been fair to the Eaton team that subsequently won 
the championship. 

On December 5, the Allan Cup trustees withdrew 
the cup from competition, unconditionally, and the 
trophy was returned by the O.H.A. to the original 
donor, Sir Montague Allan.

The 22n(i aanual meeting of the Association was 
held at the Temple Building, Toronto, November 18, 
1911, with President Louis Blake Duff in the chair. 
The residence rule was made a little tighter and a 
little clearer in the cases of sailors and residents of 
rural districts. Home teams are to be made respons- 
ible for providing goal nets without defects. The 
duration of penalties is fixed in actual playing time. 
When a puck strikes the goal cross bar it is not a goal 
unless it goes into the net. 

Dr. Wood, Treasurer, reported that the Association 
has a cash balance in the bank of $3,567.31, as against 
$2,948.91 last year. 

The following officers were elected by acclamation: 
President, H. E. Wettlaufer; Amateur Athletic Union 
Governor, Francis Nelson; First Vice-President, Chas. 
Farquharson; Second Vice-President, Kenneth Cassel- 
man; Secretary, W. A. Hewitt; Treasurer, Dr. W. G. 
Wood. For the Executive the following were elected: 
A. E. Copeland, Midland; E. M. Glover, Peterboro; 
•Tas. T. Sutherland, Kingston; J. E. Beaton, Ingersoll. 
The defeated candidates were: I. A. Bernhardt, of 
Preston; James Sinclair, of Paris; A. G. Simpson, of 
Lindsay, and Geo. T. Stott, of Cobourg. Dwight J. 
Turner and J. F. Paxton, of Whitby, were appointed 
to the Executive by President Wetlaufer. 

On motion of Jas. T. Sutherland, of Kingston, a 
■ resolution wa^ passed extending sympathy to Bruce 
Ridpath, who was the victim of an accident. 

YEAE OF 1911-12. 

The season of 1911-12 opened on January 1st, and 
continued without cessation until the 27th of February, 
when the last game of the season was played, a record 
of early closing. The winter was the steadiest for 
many years, and after the first day of the season there 
was not a single postponement for any cause whatso- 
ever. The final games commenced on February 17th, 
and the six games were completed in ten days' time, 
with record attendances at all points. Five of the six 
teams in the finals the year before qualified this year, 
the Argonaut Seniors being replaced by Toron! - Canoe 
Club, who won the Junior championship. Kingston 
Frontenacs, last year's junior winners, reached the 
finals in the Senior series.

GEO. B. McKAY 

Member O.M.A. Executive, 1919-1920 



The winners of the three ■championships for 1911-12 
were the Eaton Hockey Club of Toronto, the Preston 
Club, and the Toronto Canoe Club, who thereby become 
possessors of the J. Eoss Robertson Senior, Intermed- 
iate and Junior Cups. 

The Eaton club challenged the Winnipeg Victorias 
for the Allan Cup, and were beaten in the two games 
played at Winnipeg, March 9th by 8 to 4, and March 
11th by 16 to 1. Winnipeg had. an exceptionally clever 
team, won absolutely on their merits, and were entitled 
to possession of the trophy that had been given them 
to defend by the trustees after having been withdrawn 
from competition by the trustees and returned uncon- 
ditionally by the O. H. A. to the original donor, Sir 
Montagu Allan, 

There were 113 teams entered in the three series. 
Of these, 8 played in the Senior, 56 in the Intermediate 
and 49 in the Junior. 

In the Senior series there were eastern and western 
groups. Frontenacs of Kingston won the champion- 
ship of group No. 1 from University of Toronto and 
Argonauts of Toronto without losing a game. St. 
Michael's College defaulted in this group. In the west- 
ern group were Eatons, T.A.A.C, and Parkdale teams 
of Toronto, and the Stratford team. Though losing the 
first games of the season on their own ice by T.A.A.C, 
the Eaton club won the group honors. Eatons and 
Frontenacs then played off for the championship and 
the J. Eoss Eobertson Senior Cup. Eaet team scored 
a decisive victory on its own ice. Eatons won at home 
by 13 to 4, and in the return game lost in Kingston by 
B to 3. This, however, gave the championship to Ea- 
tons by a total score of 16 to 12. 

There were 56 teams in the Intermediate series, 
comprising 13 districts. The group winners were as 
follows: No. 1, Peterboro; No. 2, Cobourg; No. 3, Mark- 
ham; No. 4, Argonauts of Toronto; No. 5, Preston; No. 
6, Elmira; No. 7, St. Mary's; No. 8, Mount Forest; No. 
9, Paris; No. 10, Strathroy; No. 11, Tillsonburg; No. 
12, St. Catharines; No. 13, Midland. In four districts 
there were ties for the championship, viz.: Cobourg 
and Oshawa, Mt. Forest and Listowel, St. Catharines 
and Niagara Falls, Midland, Colllngwood and Victoria 
Harbor. In the second round Peterboro beat Cobourg, 
Midland won from Markham, Preston defeated Elmira, 

77 



St. Mary's disposed of Strathroy, Mt. Forest trimmed 
Argonauts, and Paris put Tillsonburg out. St. Cath- 
arines drew a bye. In the third round Midland de- 
feated Peterboro, Preston won from St. Catharines and 
Paris beat St. Mary's. Mt. Forest drew a bye. In the 
semi-finals Preston won* both -games from Paris and 
Midland defeated Mt. Forest in a sudden-death game 
at Toronto. The first game of the finals was played at 
Midland, when Preston won by the remarkably large 
score of 18 to 17. The return game at Preston was a 
much better contest, the champions again winning by 
6 to 4, thereby capturing the round by a total of 24 to 
21, the largest final score since the series was estab- 
lished in 1897. 

The Junior series had 49 teams entered in 13 series, 
and, as usual, furnished some of the most interesting 
hockey of the season. The group winners were as fol- 
lows: No. 1, Trenton; No. 2, Peterboro; No. 3, Oshawa; 
No. 4, University of Toronto; No. 5, Toronto A. A. C; 
No. 6, Toronto Canoe Club; No. 7, Berlin; No. 8, Wood- 
stock; No. 9, Seaforth; No. 10, Alvinston; No. li, Col- 
lingwood; No. 12, Orillia; No. 13, Dundalk. In the sec- 
ond round Peterboro beat Trenton, Oshawa defeated 
Toronto A. A. C, Woodstock won from Alvinston, Ber- 
lin put Seaforth away, Toronto Canoe Club won from 
Dundalk, and Orillia defeated CoUingwood. Univer- 
sity of Toronto drew a bye. In the third round To- 
ronto Canoe Cllub won from Oshawa, Orillia beat Uni- 
versity of Toronto, and Berlin defeated Woodstock. 
Peterboro gol> the bye. In the semi-finals Orillia beat 
Peterboro, and Toronto Canoe Club won Irom Berlin. 
In the first match of the finals, played at Toronto, the 
Toronto Canoe Club won by a score of 7 to 2, while in 
the return match at Orillia the home team were vic- 
torious by 5 to 3. Canoe Club, therefore, won the 
round and the J. Ross Robertson Senior Cup by 10 
goals to 7. 

The champion teams and runners-up were as fol- 
lows:

and ordered replayed. The certificate of H. Troup was 
cancelled. Waterloo protested Joseph Karges of Ber- 
lin, and his certificate was cancelled and the game or- 
dered to be replayed. The certificate of H. Hergen- 
roeder of Waterloo was also cancelled. 

The 23rd annual meeting of the Association was 
held, at the Temple Building, Toronto, on Saturday, 
Nov. 16, 1912, with the President, H. E. Wettlaufer, of 
Berlin, in the chair. After a spirited debate it was 
decided to debar from membership any club playing 
under the name of any commercial organization. This 
excluded the Eaton Hockey Club, Senior champions of 
the Association. Juniors were given the choice of 
playing one Senior or one Intermediate match during 
the same season with their own club without disquali- 
fication, and teachers were put on the same footing as 
students in regard to the residence rule. The Treas- 
urer's report showed a cash balance of $4,337.38. 

For the first time in the history of the Association 
all of the officers were re-elected by acclamation, and 
President Wettlaufer made the same apointments as 
the year before, leaving the Executive composed as 
follows: 

Past President, L. Blake Duff, Welland; President, 
H. E. Wettlaufer, Berlin; Life Member, J. Ross Rob- 

79 



ertson, Toronto; A.A.U. of C. Governor, Francis Nel- 
son, Toronto; First Vice-President, Charles Farquhar- 
son, Stratford; Second Vice-President, Kenneth Cassel- 
man, London; Secretary, W, A. Hewitt, Toronto; Treas- 
urer, Dr. W. G. Wood, Toronto. Executive Committee 
— A. E. Copeland, Midland; B. M. Glover, Peterboro; 
Jas. T. Sutherland, Kingston; J. E. Beaton, Chatham; 
Dwight J. Turner, Toronto; Sheriff J. F, Paxton, 
Whitby. 

President Wettlaufer gave notice of motion to 
change the date of the annual meeting from the 3rd 
Saturday in November until the 1st Saturday in De- 
cember, and it will go into effect in 1913. 

YEAR OF 1912-13. 

Notwithstanding unfavorable conditions, the regu- 
lar schedule was maintained and played out in all 
three series, commencing on the 26th of December, 
1912, and concluding on March 17th, 1913, both open- 
ing and closing games being played on artificial ice in 
Toronto. 

There were 108 teams entered in the three series. 
Of these, the Toronto Rowing Club, Lourdes, and St. 
Paul's Club of Toronto decided not to play, leaving 
12 in the Senior, 53 in the Intermediate, and 43 in the 
Junior. 

In the Senior series there were three districts, the 
winners beii^g as follows: Group No. 1, St. Michaels 
of Toronto; »«roup No. 2, Toronto R. & A. A.; Group 
No. 3, Midland. 

Peterboro, University of Toronto, and Kingston 
Frontenacs were in Group No. 1, with St. Michaels, 
while Preston, Stratford, and Parkdale Canoe Club 
were grouped with Toronto R. & A. A. St. Michaels 
and Toronto R. & A. A. went through their groups 
without a defeat, while Midland and Toronto Canoe 
Club wore tic in their district when Collingwood and 
Toronto Sinicoes defaulted. In the play-off, at Orillia, 
Midland beat Canoe Club by 3 to 2, though the North- 
erners were behind 2 to 1 within 20 seconds of full 
time. In the semi-finals, Toronto R. & A. A. drew 
the bye, and St. Michaels and Midland played four 
memorable games to decide the supremacy. In the 
first series of home-and-home games, the teams were 

80 



tied, and in a similar play-oflf St. Mikes won by a fair 
margin. The finals furnished a surprise in the defeat 
of St. Michaels by Toronto E. & A. A. In the first 
game the Torontos secured a lead of five goals, the 
score being 7 to 2, which St. Michaels were unable to 
overcome, although they won the second game by a 
score of 6 to 3. The Torontos, therefore, won the 
championship by a total score of 10 to 8, in a series 
of games that tested the capacity of the new Arena 
in Toronto to the limit. 

In the Intermediate series there were 50 teams 
entered, comprising 15 districts, the winners being as 
follows: — Group No. 1, Peterboro; Group No. 2, 
Whitby; Group No. 3, Markham; Groups Nos. 4 and 5, 
Simcoe; Group No. 6, Berlin; Group No. 7, London; 
Group No. 8, New Hamburg; Group No. 9, St. Thomas; 
Group No. 10, Goderich; Group No. 11, Wiarton; Group 
No. 12, Sarnia; Group No. 13, Collingwood; Group No. 
14, Gravenhurst; Group No. 15, Brampton. 

In five groups there were ties for the champion- 
ship, viz., Peterboro and Cobourg, Berlin and Elmira, 
Loudon and Paris, Chatham and Sarnia, Midland and 
Collingwood. In the second round, Whitby beat 
Gravenhurst, Markham won from Brampton, London 
defeated Sarnia, Berlin disposed of New Hamburg, and 
Wiarton beat Goderich. Peterboro, Simcoe, Colling- 
wood and St. Thomas drew bye^ In the third round, 
Whitby beat Peterboro, Berlin trimmed Simcoe, Coll- 
ingwood won from Wiarton, London defeated St. 
Thomas. In the semi-finals, London defEratod Berlin 
and Collingwood beat Whitby. The final, between 
London and Colling-wood was a record-breaker in point 
of interest and closeness of the score. Perhaps it is 
not too much to say that two more evenly-matched 
teams never faced each other on the ice in the O.H.A. 
In the first game, played at Collingwood, the home 
team won by 6 to 5, and in the return game, at 
London, the Collingwood boys were beaten by 2 to 1, 
in a desperate struggle on water-covered ice. This 
tied the teams on the round, with seven goals apiece, 
and the play-off took place in Toronto on March 17th, 
Collingwood coming out victorious by 3 goals to 2, 
after another grand contest, thereby winning the 
championship by 10 goals to 9. The last previous tie 

81 



In an O. H. A. final was in 1907-8, when Collingwood 
and Midland were tie, 15 goals all, in home-and-home 
games, and Midland won the play-off in Orillia by 
8 to 5. 

The Junior series had 43 teams entered in the eleven 
sections. The group winners: — Group No. 1, Kingston 
Frontenacs; Group No. 2, Oshawa; Group No. 3, St. 
Andrew's College; Group No. 4, Varsity III.; Group 
No. 5, New Hamburg; Group No. 6, Guelph Victorias; 
Group No. 7, Woodstock; Group No. 8, Stratford; 
Group No. 9, Owen Sound; Group No. 10, Collingwood; 
Group No. 11, Orillia. In the second round, Orillia 
beat St. Andrews, Oshawa won from Varsity III., 
Stratford beat New Hamburg, Woodstock defeated 
Guelph Victorias, Collingwood beat Owen Sound. 
Kingston Frontenacs drew a bye. 

In the third round, Oshawa beat Kingston Fron- 
tenacs, Orillia defeated Collingwood, and Woodstock 
won from Stratford. In the semi-finals, Woodstock 
drew a bye and Orillia won from Oshawa. 

The final games, between Orillia and Woodstock, 
were won by the former team by the same score, 7 
goals to 4, making a total of 14 to 8 on the round. 
The first game was played at Stratford, owing torink 
diflSculty at Woodstock, and the return game at 
Orillia. The wiunors^lnyed fine hockey and had the 
distinction of bcinp '*jrie only club to go through the 
season without a defeat in their championship series. 
Also, it is-jEorthy of note that ttieir list of penalties 
for the seiSron was the lightest in the Association — a 
record for clean play that should be envied by every 
club playing the game. 

The champion teams and runners-up were as fol-

The Alerts, Limited, of Hamilton, imported a team 
of hockey players to that city and secured admission 
in the Association. Their membership was cancelled 
when certificates were applied for, and the players 
in question were declared ineligible. The list included: 
Eay Marchand, E. W. Gustin, H. G. Mohan, Eeg. Boyer, 
E. C. Langman, Clayton Frechette, Fred B. Denison, 
and B. V, Hunt. Players whos^ suspensions were raised 
included: A. D. McLean ancl Ernest C. Briscoe, of 
Chatham; Dan McDonald, ofrGoderich; Earl Jliers 
and Norman Gildner, of Wiarton; Hajry Gowan, of 
Toronto; John C. Wiggins, of Goderich^ 

Seaforth protested a Goderich game unsuccessfully, 
the referee's decision being final on questions of fact. 
Niagara Falls Tecumsehs and Hamilton had a dispute 
over a game at Hamilton regarding time, and as it 
affected the group championship it was replayed later. 
Elmira protested Berlin regarding the appointment of 
a referee. The protest was disallowed, there not being 
sufficient grounds to interfere with the result, as the 
game was played. The Guelph Victorias registered a 
complaint against John Timm, of Woodstock, contend- 
ing that he did not qualify under the residence rule. 
The Committee found that Timm was eligible, and 
dismissed the complaint. The Waterloo Junior Club 
was suspended for playing ineligible players. Two 
of the players, Oscar Gies and Wm. Wendell, were

expelled for furnishing fraudulent declarations of age. 
The 24th annual meeting of the Association was 
held at the Temple Building, Toronto, on Saturday, 
December 6, 1913, with the President, H. E. Wett- 
laufer, in the chair. The Treasurer's report showed a 
cash balance in the bank of $6,049.12, an increase of 
$1,711.74 over the previous year. It was decided to 
give the players of police villages the privilege of 
playing in their nearest O.H.A. towns. The rule re- 
lating to bounding shots off goalkeepers was amended 
so as to legalize offside play ten feet from the goal- 
keeper instead of three feet, as formerly. Clubs will 
be required to have auxiliary jumpers for their play- 
ers, and more definite rules were made regarding over- 
time games and timekeepers' duties. It was decided 
to designate players as follows: Goalkeeper, Right De- 
fence, Left Defence, Eover, Centre, Right Wing, Left 
Wing. 

Officers were elected as follows: Past President, 
H. E. Wettlaufer, Berlin; President, Chas. Farquhar- 
son, Stratford; Life Member, J. Ross Robertson, 
Toronto; A. A. TJ. of C. Governor, Francis Nelson, 
Toronto; First Vice-President, Kenneth Casselman,

YEAR OF 1913-14. 

The weather conditions in the early part of the 
season, especially during the last tVo weeks of January, 
were entirely unsuited for hockey, and it was with diffi- 
culty that the preliminary round was completed within 
a reasonable time. However, an opportune cold snap 
set in early in February, and good ice was obtained 
from then until the end of the season in March. 

There were 107 teams entered in the three series. 
The St. Paul's Club of Toronto decided not to play, 
leaving 8 in the Senior, 48 in the Intermediate, and 50 
in the Junior. 

In the Senior Series there were two districts, the 
winners being as follows: Group No. 1, St. Michaels 

85 



of Toronto; Group No. 2, Toronto R. & A. A. In the 
group with St. Michaels were Frontenacs of Kingston, 
University of Toronto, ami Osgoode Hall of Toronto. 
St. Michaels wore beaten in Kingston by Frontenacs, 
but the latter lost to Universit}- of Toronto in Toronto, 
and the group championship was settled before the 
game in Kingston was played. 

In Group No. 2, Toronto R. & A. A. had worthy 
opponents, in Midland, Toronto Rowing Club and Argo- 
naut Rowing Club and only won the district after a 
hard season. The group winners lost the final district 
game at Midland, but it had no effect on the champion- 
ship. 

The final games between Toronto R. & A. A. and St. 
Michaels broke all attendance records in Toronto, and 
resulted in two stirring contests. Toronto R. & A. A. 
proved themselves superior in both games, winning the 
first by a score of 6 to .5, by scoring the winning goal 
in the last 10 seconds of play, and winning the second 
by a score of 3 to 2. This gave them the round and 
championship, by a total score of 9 to 7. The paid 
attendance at the first game was 6,506, and at the 
second game 7,127, the latter constituting a new record 
in Toronto for a hockej' match, either amateur or 
professional. 

In the Intermediat^Beries there WCTe 48 teams en- 
tered, compi;i«ing 11 mstricts, the winners being as 
follows: Gro^ No. 1, Peterboro; Group No. 2, River- 
sides of Tororto; Group No. .3, Hamilton Hockey Club; 
Group No. 4, Dunnvillc; Group No. 5, Berlin; Group No. 
6. New Hamburg; Group No. 7, London; Group No. 8, 
Sarnia; Group No. 9, Stratford; Group No. 10, Wiarton; 
Group No. 11, Orillia. 

In three districts there were ties for the champion 
ship, viz., Berlin and Preston, Sarnia and Alvinston, 
and Orillia and Midland. Instead of a sudden death 
game on neutral ice, Berlin and Preston were allowed 
home-and-homc games to break the tie, on the under- 
standing that they should return a winner, and as a 
result of the arrangement had to play 50 minutes over- 
time in the second game at Berlin before a decision 
was reached. In the second round Orillia beat Peter- 
boro, Hamilton won from Dunnville, Sarnia defeated 
London, Berlin beat New Hamburg, and Wiarton de- 

86 



feated Stratford. Riversides of Torontc drew a bye. 
In the third round, Wiarton beat Riversides and Sar- 
nia defeated Hamilton. Berlin and Orillia drew byes. 
In the semi-finals, Berlin defeated Sernia and Orillia 
beat Wiarton. The final games between Berlin and 
Orillia indicated that the teams were evenly matched. 
Berlin won on their own ice by 4 to 0, but were beaten 
at Orillia by 3 to 1, thereby winning the round and the 
championship by 5 goals to 3. The Orillia team were 
the surprise of the series. The Berlin team, however, 
had a splendid lecord during the season and proved 
themselves the better team. 

The Junior Series had 50 teams entered in the eleven 
sections, and the games furnished some of the best 
hockey of the season. The group winners were as 
follows: Group No. 1, Kingston Frontenacs; Group No. 
2, Belleville; Group No. 3, Oshawa; Group No. 4, Upper 
Canada College; Group No. 5, Varsity III.; Group No. 

6, Berlin Union Jack; Group No. 7, Hamilton; Group 
No. 8, "Woodstock; Group No. 9, Stratford; Group No. 
10, Owen Sound; Group No. 11, Orillia. 

In the second round, Kingston beat Belleville, 
Oshawa defeated Upper Canada, Varsity III. won from 
Hamilton, Berlin Union Jacks beat Stratford, and 
Orillia defeated Owen Sound. Woodstock drew a bye. 
In the third rou&d, Kingston beat Oshawa, and, being 
successfully protested against, dropped out, and Oshawa 
beat Belleville in the play-off. Berlin beat' Woodstock. 
Varsity III. and Orillia drew byes. In the semi-final 
Orillia defeated Oshawa and Varsity III. won from 
Berlin. The finals, between Orillia and Varsity III. 
furnished a surprise, inasmuch as the collegians won the 
first game in Toronto by 4 to 3. In the return game 
at Orillia the home team won by 10 to 3, thereby cap- 
turing the round and the championship by 13 goals to 

7. This was Orillia 's second consecutive win of the 
Junior championship, after being runners-up in this 
series for two previous years.

After frequent and exhaustive hearings in the 
charge that Messrs. Frank Walsh and Bert Short of 
the Toronto Rowing Club had offered a monetary in- 
ducement to certain players to play with the Toronto 
Rowing Club^ the decision was that the charge had not 
been proven* After consideration of a year-old charge, 
the committee found nothing to justify any suspicion 
that the Parkdale Canoe Club Hockey Section was, or 
had been, carried on in other than as a strictly amateur 
organization. Players whose suspensions were raised 
included: Le Roy Devitt, Walter Mickus, Theodore 
Wescloh, S. Uffelman, N. Jacobi, of Waterloo; Law- 
rence Clayton, of Berlin; Fred. B. Denison, of Peter- 
boro; Reg. Boyor, of Kingston; E. C. Langman, of Ham- 
ilton. Certificates were refused the following players 
to play with the Sarnia Club; J. C. Dore, Louis Imbleau, 
J. C. Grannary, Harold Farlow, and H. G. Proutt. A 
certificate was refused Vincent Whitty to play with 
Trenton. The ban was lifted on the Syracuse team and 
rink. A protest of T. R. & A. A. against Midland was 
allowed and game ordered to be replayed. N. H. Arm- 
strong, of Midland, had his certificate cancelled, being 

8S 



declared ineligible under the residence rule. Biver- 
iales successfully protested Eoss Summerfeldt, of Mark- 
ham, under the residence rule, and game was ordered 
replayed. On protest of Oshawa Club, the certificate 
of Rupert Milan, of Kingston Frontenac Juniors, was 
cancelled under the residence rule, anf' teams ordered 
to play off on neutral ice. Kingston declined to play 
and Belleville, who had been beaten by them in the 
second round, took their place. A protest by Belleville 
against Thomas Eiordan, of Oshawa, was dismissed, 
there being absolutely no evidence to support the 
charge made. Three overtime games were played in 
three different districts within a week without a winner 
being decided. They were Niagara Falls Hockey Club 
at Dunnville, Toronto Riversides at Markham, and To- 
ronto R. & A. A. v. Toronto Rowing Club, at Toronto. 
The rules provided no penalty, so the sub-committee 
ordered all the games to be replayed. The Midland 
Club appealed unsuccessfully to the Executive Com- 
mittee against this ruling in so far as it related to the 
game in Toronto, their contention being that each team 
should have been credited with a loss. The certificates 
of Ernie Freyer, of Collingwood, and Cyril Giroux, of 
Peterboro, were cancelled for unbecoming conduct on 
the ice. The Collingwood Olub was warned for not fur- 
nishing proper protection for visiting teams and 
referees. 

The 25th annual meeting of the Association waa 
held at the Temple Building, Toronto, on Saturday, 
Dec. 5, 1914, with the President, Chas. Farquharson, in 
the chair. The Treasurer's report showed a cash bal- 
ance in the bank of $6,867.3, an increase of $817.91 
over the previous year. It was decided to make it 
obligatory for a student, not only to register, but to 
attend lectures regularly. Players living in villages 
were given the privilege of playing in their nearest 
O. H. A. town. It was decided to play games in three 
20-minute periods, instead of two 30-minute periods, as 
heretofore. An assistant referee will be used in semi- 
final and final games if considered advisable. It was 
decided to limit all overtime games to 30 minutes extra 
play and when, ver clubs agree to abandon a game or 
decline to play upon order of the referee in any of th« 
extra periods a loss shall be . barged. Substitutes will 

89 



be allowed only in case of injury to goal-keepera. The 
sum of $1,000 was voted to the Canadian Patriotic Fund 
and $2,000 to endow an 0. H. A. Cot in perpetuity in 
the Hospital for Sick Children. 

The greetings of the newly-formed Canadian Amateur 
Hockey Association were brought to the convention 
from Ottawa by Dr. Taylor, of v>innipeg, the President 
of the national governing body. Dr. Taylor was au- 
thorized to offer the Hon, Presidency of the C. A. H. A. 
to Mr. J. Ross Robertson. 

The officers: President, C. Farquharson, Stratford; 
Past President, E. Wettlaufer, Berlin; Life Member, J.

YEAR OF 1914-15. 

The weather conditions were splendid for hockey 
from early in December, and very few postponements 
were necessary until the ^^eliminary round- had been 
finished. However, there wore no serious postpone- 
ments, an(l the, season was endeU on the 11th of March. 

There were 98 teams entered in the three series. The 
St. Paul's Club of Toronto decided not to play, leaving 
8 in the Senior, 45 in the Intermediate, and 45 in the 
Junior. 

In the Senior Series, there were two districts, the 
winners being: Group No. 1, Victorias of Toronto; 
Group No. 2, St. Michaels of Toronto. In Group No 1 
with Victorias were Riversides of Toronto, Kingston 
Frontenacs, and University of Toronto. Victorias lost 
the game at Kingston, but it had no effect on the 
standing. Riversides, who finished second, made an 
excellent showing for their first year in senior company. 
In Group No. 2, St. Michaels had as opponents Toronto 
Rowing Club, Argonaut Rowing Club, and Midland. 
The last named club dropped out after playing and 
losing a game at home with Argonauts, but the other 

90 



three clubs had keen contention for group honors, St. 
Michaels winning and qualifying for the finals. 

The final games between Victorias and St. Michaels 
attracted the largest crowds that ever saw hockey 
played in Toronto, and resulted in two splendid con- 
tests, the Victorias winning the round by a single goal. 
The first game was won by the Victorias by 2 to 1, 
neither side scoring until after 46 minutes of play. 
In the second game, a tie resulted, each team scoring 2 
goals, so that Victorias won the championship by a 
total score of 4 goals to 3, The paid attendance at 
the first game was 7,366, a new record for Toronto, 
and at the second game 6,982, a total attendance of 
14,348 for the two games. 

In the Intermediate Series there were 45 teams en- 
tered, comprising 13 districts, the winners being as 
follows: No. 1, Picton; No. 2, Brampton; No. 3, Coll- 
ingwood; No. 4, Hamilton A. A.; No. 5, Port Colborne; 
No. 6, Berlin; No. 7, Drumbo; No. 8, Seaforth; No. 9, 
Ingersoll; No. 10, Sarnia; No. 11, Orillia; No. 12, 
Bracebridge; No. 13, Wiarton. In four districts there 
were ties for the championship, viz., Picton and Peter- 
boro, Port Colborne, Dunnvill^ and Niagara Falls, In- 
gersoll and Paris, and Orillit, and Midland. In the 
second round, Brampton bejrt Picton, Collingwood de- 
feated Hamilton, Berli^i, won from Drumbo, Sarnia 
beat Ingersoll, Orillia defeated Bracebridge, and Wiar- 
ton won from Seaforth. Port Colborne got a bye. In 
the second round, Orillia beat Brampton, Collingwood 
defeated Port Colborne, and Wiarton trimmed Berlin. 
Sarnia drew a bye. In the semi-finals, Orillia defeated 
Collingwood and Wiarton beat Sarnia. The final games, 
between Orillia and Wiarton, were splendid contests 
between two evenly matched teams. In the first game 
at Orillia, on fast ice, the home team won by 5 to 1, 
but were defeated at Wiarton on soft ice by 3 to 1, 
thereby winning the round by 6 goals to 4. Both teams 
were excellently balanced and ripe for senior company. 

The Junior Series had 45 teams entered in the 12 sec- 
tions, and the games furnished some of the best hockey 
of the season. The group winners were as follows: 
No 1, Kingston Collegiate Institute; No. 2, Lindsay; 
No. 3, Oshawa; No. 4, St. Andrew's College; No. 5, 

91 



Varsity III.; No. 6, Welland; No. 7, Woodstock Col- 
lege; No. 8, Western University (London); No. 9, Ber- 
lin Union Jacks; No. 10, Collingwood; No. 11, Mid- 
land; No. 12, No winner. There were two district ties, 
viz., Collingwood and Barrie, and Western University 
and Woodstock. In the preliminary round, Port Hope 
and Hamilton Rowing Club finished first in Groups 
Nos. 2 and 7, but were disqualified for using ineligible 
players. Lindsay and Peterboro played off in No. 2, 
the former winning, while Woodstock College replaced 
Hamilton R. C. Both Owen Sound and Markdale were 
disqualified in Group No. 12 for using ineligible players. 
In the second round, Lindsay defeated K. C. I., St. 
Andrews beat Oshawa, Varsity III. defeated Welland, 
Berlin Union Jacks defeated W^oodstock College, Coll- 
ingwood won from Midland. Western University of 
London drew a bye. In the third round, Varsity III. 
defeated St. Andrews, and Berlin beat Western Uni- 
versity. Collingwood and Lindsay drew byes. In the 
semi-finals. Varsity III. defeated Lindsay and Berlin 
won from Collingwood, an extra game on neutral ice in 
Toronto being required to determine the winner of 
the latter round. Tlie finals provided fine hockey. 
On soft ice at Berlin, the Union Jacks and Varsity III. 
played a tie, 7 goals all. \J!he return game at Toronto 
attracted a large crowd, and was won by Varsity by 
9 to 4, who thereby became champions by a total score 
of 16 to 11.

Owen Sound successfully protested Markdale Juniors, 
and a counter-protest by Markdale was also allowed. 
Secretary J. E. Mercer, of Markdale, was permanently 
suspended for furnishing a false birth certificate for his 
brother, Harold Mercer, who played under the certifi- 
cate of his dead brother, Kendal Morden Mercer. The 
Markdale Club and the rest of the players were sus- 
pended for the season. The Owen Sound Club was sus- 
pended for the seasop for playing Truman A. Bell, who 
did not qualify under the residence rule. The Hamilton 
Rowing Club Juniors lost their chance for the cham- 
pionship by playing Alex. Murray under the birth 
certificate of his brother Frank. Alex. Murray was 
expelled from the O. H. A. and Frank Murray sus- 
pended. The Woodstock College team were declared 
winners of the group. The Port Hope Juniors were 
suspended for the balance of the season for playing 
Wilfred Hills under the age certificate of his brother, 
Robert L. Hills. Wilfred Hills was expelled and Robt. 
L. Hills suspended. The peculiar feature of this case 
was that Wilfred Hills was not over age, and there 
was no apparent reason for the deception. Oshawa was 
required to give substantial assurance for the proper 
protection of visiting teams or O. H. A. hockey will be 
forbidden in that town. The officers and members of 
the Peterboro Intermediate Hockey Club were sus- 
pended because of the discovery that Joe Tetrault had 
played on that team under the name of Joe Moines. 
Information was laid for the arrest of Tetrault or 
Moines on a charge of attempted fraud. 

The Victoria Hockey Club of Toronto, Senior cham- 
pions, played at Melville, Sask., on March 6th, 1915, 
contrary to O. H. A. instruction, and automatically 

9S 



suspended themselves from the Association. Subse- 
quently the club permanently disbanded, and the Pre- 
sident, Mr. F. N. Gooch. reported to the O. H. A. that, 
so far, he has been unable to secure a proper financial 
statement, but that proceedings were being taken to 
secure the same, and any balance recovered will be 
turned over to the Patriotic Fund. The trouble at 
Melville occurred over a misunderstanding between 
the O. H. A. and the Canadian Amateur Hockey Asso- 
ciation, as to the application of the three month resi- 
dence rule. The C. A. H. A. ruled that it did not go 
into effect until this coming winter, while the O. H. A. 
held that it applied to last year's teams. The question 
of jurisdiction was also raised by the C. A. H. A. 
officials, and befogged the direct issue which was solely 
regarding the eligibility of certain Melville players 
under the residence rule. The Victorias showed a 
singular lack of loyalty to their own Association, es- 
pecially the officials in charge of the club, and in con- 
sequence of their action have put themselves out of 
the Association. 

The Executive decided that individual players prac- 
tising with regular professional teams or given trials 
by such clubs should bo considered as professionals, as 
it would be prima facie evidence of professionalism, 
and would, therefore, debar such players from getting 
O. H. A.' certificates. 

The Executive called the attention of the Provincial 
Government to the danger at hockey rinks from fire 
and snow accumulation, and asked for governmental 
inspection of all rinks under the jurisdiction of the 
0. H. A. The Government replied that such matters 
were under the control of the municipalities, and not 
of the Government. The Executive urges every club 
to have its rink thoroughly inspected by the local 
authorities and every precaution taken to have it put 
in an absolutely safe condition. 

The 26th annual meeting of the Association was held 
at the Temple Building, Toronto, on Saturday, Decem- 
ber 4th, 1915, at 10 a.m., with the President, Charles 
Farquharson, in the chair. The treasurer's report 
showed a cash balance of $5,041.41. It was decided 
that enlisted men, no matter where located, may play 

94 



with their home team, their regimental team, or with 
any team in the town in which their company or bat- 
talion is located. The 0. H .A. will see to it that only 
men who are properly enlisted and passed for overseas 
service are granted these options. It was decided that 
any player who is under suspension from the O. H. A. 
for any cause whatever arid who enlists for Overseas 
Service shall automatically be reinstated and eligible 
for membership in this Association. This, of course, 
does not apply to professionals. Henceforth players 
will be compelled to sign their names in full on certifi- 
cates and duplicates, and a new rule compelling all 
players to sign their names in full on the referee's 
report, and the clubs to keep a set of ".ash and expense 
books, open to inspection, was also passed. Players in

Toronto, to the Executive. 

YEAR OF 1915-16. 

An unusual mild spell towards the end of January 
and the first week in February delayed the settling of 
the group championships. It was a military year with 
many of the players and officers of clubs in khaki. 
There were many teams composed exclusively of sol- 
diers. The winners of the three championships were 
the Riverside Hockey Club of Toronto, the Sarnia 
Hockey Club, and the Aura Lee Hockey Club of To- 
ronto. None of these clubs had ever won an O.H.A. 
championship before, nor figured in the finals. There 
were 101 teams entered in the three series. The St. 
Michael's College Club of Toronto, Upper Canada Col- 

95 



lege of Toronto, the St. Michael's Senior Hockey Club 
of Toronto, St. Paul's Intermediate Hockey Club of 
Toronto, the Cobourg Intermediate Hockey Club, the 
Lindsay Intermediate, New Hamburg H. C, Con- 
naughts of Ottawa, and Welland Juniors, decided not 
to play, leaving 18 in the Senior, 43 in the Interme 
diate, and 40 in the Junior. 

In the Senior Series, there were four districts, the 
winners being as follows: Group No. 1, Frontenacs of 
Kingston; Group No. 2, Riversides of Toronto; Group 
No. 3, Berlin; Group No. 4, Seaforth. In Group No. 
1, with Frontenacs, were Brockville and Queen's Uni- 
versity. Frontenacs went through their group with- 
out a defeat, but had several players injured, and 
were weakened for the semi-finals by reason of the 
fact that several of their soldier players had to leave 
for the front. 

In Group No. 2, Riversides had as opponents Argo- 
nauts, 40th Battery and Toronto R. and A. A. This 
was known as the "Toronto Group," and a double 
schedule between equally matched teams made the 
season a notable one in this city. T. R. and A. A. 
failed to win a game during the season, but the other 
three teams were almost on a par, and nearly every 
game resulted in a sensational contest. Unfortunately 
the 40th Battery teajii were called overseas when they 
were at the top of their form, and with a royal chance 
to win the group. This left the Argonauts and River- 
sides to fight it out, and the oarsmen, by virtue of 
winning three overtime games, tied up the district 
with the Riversides. In the play-off the Riversides 
won out, and were undoubtedly the better team, 
though the Argonauts were weakened by injuries to 
plaj'ers. 

Group No. 3 had a compact group of five clubs, in- 
cluding Berlin, Preston, Stratford, Elmira and Water- 
loo. Berlin went through the group without a defeat, 
though there were a number of close games.. 

Group No. 4 had three clubs entered: Seaforth, Sar- 
nia and Hamilton R.C. Sarnia defaulted to Seaforth 
in the first round, and Seaforth beat Hamilton Rowing 
Club decisively in liomc and home games. 

In the semi finals Riversides beat Kingston Fron- 

96 



tenacs by big scores both abroad and at home, viz., 
10 to 1 and 18 to 2. Berlin also won both games from 
Seaforth by 7 to 3 and 4 to 1. 

The finals were rather disappointing, as Eiversides 
defeated Berlin in the first game at Toronto by 8 to 1. 
The Toronto team showed their class oy winning in 
Berlin, the score being 4 to 3, though the home team 
made a much better showing than in Toronto. 

In the Intermediate Series there were 43 teams en- 
tered, comprising 11 districts, the winners being as 
follows: Group No. 1, Belleville; Group No. 2, Peter- 
boro 93rd; Group No. 3, Oshawa; Group No. 4, Bramp- 
ton; Group No. 5, Port Colborne; Group No. 6, Paris; 
Group No. 7, Sarnia; Group No. 8, Seaforth; Group 
No. 9, Midland; Group No. 10, Wiarton; Group No. 
11, Alvinston, a bye. There were no less than 7 dis- 
trict ties, viz., Belleville and Picton, Peterboro 93rd 
and Peterboro Electrics, Oshawa and Bowmanville, 
Brampton and Weston, Midland and Collingwood, and 
76th of Barrie, Gravenhurst and Orillia, Wiarton and 
Markdale, and 147th Battalion, Owen Sound. 

In the second round Belleville beat 93rd of Peter- 
boro, Sarnia defeated Alvinston, and Seaforth default- 
ed. Oshawa, Brampton, Paris, Port Colborne, Midland 
and Wiarton drew byes. In the third round Bellevills 
beat Oshawa, Sarnia won from Paris, Midland beat 
Brampton, and Port Colborne won from Wiarton. In 
the semi-finals Belleville won from Midland, and Sarnia 
defeated Port Colborne. 

The finals showed the most remarkable reversal of 
form of many seasons, and the most exciting finish 
to a championship in years. Sarnia first visited Belle- 
ville, where they were soundly beaten by 14 goals to 
5, and with a 9-goal lead, it looked all over but pre- 
senting the trophy to Bellevile. However, in the re- 
turn game at Sarnia, the home team won by 14 to 4, 
and captured the championship by a single goal. To 
do this Sarnia had to score 3 goals in the last six min- 
utes of play. They tied the score in the last minute 
of play, and scored the necessary goal with about ten 
seconds to play, 

The Junior Series had 40 teams entered in 13 dis- 
tricts, the group winners being as follows: Group No. 

97 



1, Kingston C.I.; Group No. 2, Port Hope; Group No. 
3 A, Belleville; Group No. 3B, St. Andrew's College; 
Group No. 4, Aura Leo, ot Toronto; Group No. 5, Sim- 
coe Norfolks; Group No. 6, London Ontarios; Group 
No. 7, Sarnia St. George's, a bye; Group No. 8, Berlin 
Union Jacks; Group No. 9. Collingwood; Group No. 10, 
76th Battalion, Barrie; Group No. 11, Toronto High 
School Association, a bye; Group No. 12, Owen Sound, 
a bye. 

In the second round Kingston C.I. defeated Port 
Hope, Belleville beat St. Andrew's College, Aura Lee 
won from Owen Sound, Berlin Union Jacks beat Sim- 
coe Norfolks, London Ontarios defeated Sarnia, St. 
George's, Collingwood beat 76th Battalion of Barrie, 
Toronto High School Assocration drew a bye. In the 
third round Belleville beat K.C.I., Aura Lee defeated 
Toronto High School, and Berlin Union Jacks won 
from London Ontarios. Collingwood drew a bye. In 
the semi-finals Aura Lee beat Belleville, both in Belle- 
ville and in Toronto, and Berlin Union Jacks won 
from Collingwood after an extra game in Toronto, the 
teams as in the year before), being tie in the home 
and home games. 

The finals were very closely contested. The first 
game was played at Berlin, where Aura Lee beat 
the Union Jacks, who were without the services of 
their rover, Corp. Art. Schnarr, by 4 goals to 2. Schnarr 
played in the return game in Toronto, where the teams 
played a tie game, 2 goals all. Aura Lee, therefore, 
won the championship by a total of 6 goals to 4. 

The players of the champions and runners-up were 
as follows: Riverside Hockey Club of Toronto (Senior 
Champions): E. J. Collett, Glenn Smith, Plomer Y

The season was singularly free from trouble, and 
there was only one protest heard by the Executive 
Committee, and that was after all the final champion- 
ship games had been played. The decision, which in- 
cludes the charge, was as follows: "Resolved: That 
the ground of the protest of the Belleville Hockey 
Club against Sarnia, in the case of T. G. Hillman (viz., 
that he was in Ottawa after August 1st, 1915) does not 
involve a violation of the residence rule; also that the 
statement of fact alleged by the Belleville Club is not 
maintained by the evidence." W. Harold Birks of 
the Brockville Club, was suspended for the balance of 
the season for inciting an attack upon a r-^feree. 

The twenty-seventh annual meeting of the Associ- 
ation vvas held at the Temple Building, Toronto, on 
Saturday, December 2nd, 1916, at 10 a.m., with the 
Acting President, Sheriff J. F. Paxton, in the chair. 
The treasurer's statement showed a cash balance of 
$5,065.29. The' delegates expressed themselves as 
against six-man hockey in small rinks and as opposed 
to the abolition of body-checking. The only amend- 
ments to carry were to the regulations and the rules 
of competition. It was unanimously agreed that in 
the case of a returned soldier he may play wherever 
he desires to locate, and in the case of an honorably 
discharged soldier he may play in his home town — in 
both cases the credentials to be passed upon by the 
Executive Committee. Clause 6 of the regulation was 
amended to read as follows: "No player shall play for 
any of the cups for more than one club in the Associ-

Member O.II.A. Executive, 1919 20. 



ation year, and no one who is not an amateur in good 
standing shall be allowed to play in any Association 
match." It was also decided to put the onus of noti- 
fying the Association regarding the referee upon the 
"home club" instead of "either club," and to allow 
players who compete in "county, military district, and 
interscholastic" teams to also play in the O.H.A. 

The officers of 1914-15 were re-elected by acclama- 
tion, and the following resolution adopted on a stand- 
ing vote: "Eesolved: That the minutes of this annual 
session of the Ontario Hockey Association record the 
congratulations of the Association to Captain J. T. 
Sutherland, now with the Canadian overseas forces as 
quartermaster of the Casualty Training Battalion, on 
his unanimous re-election to the office of president, 
and make this formal appreciation of his long and 
valuable services to the national game and the Ontario 
Hockey Association, and express our hope for his 
early and safe return to our councils." 

YEAR OF 1916-17. 

There were 17 exclusively soldier teams in the 
various competitions, and nearly every team engaged 
in the game had some of its players in khaki, even to 
the junior teams. The winners of the th^-ee cham- 
pionships for 1916-17 were the Dental Hockey Club of 
Toronto, the Hamilton Hockey Club, and the Aura Lee 
Hockey Club of Toronto. Aura Lee repeated their 
victory of the year before in the junior series, but 
with an entirely different team. It was the Dentals' 
first appearance in the O.H.A., and they achieved a 
notable victory in winning the senior championship 
on their first season out. It was also Hamilton 's first 
hockey championship, and the intermediate cup was 
won by them after a most successful season. In addi- 
tion to winning the O.H.A. championship, the Dentals 
went to Winnipeg, and took part in the annual com- 
petition between the senior champion teams of the 
various provinces under the auspices of the Canadian 
Amateur Ho^'key Association, and won the amateur 
championship of Canada, represented by the Allan 
Cup. There were S9 teams entered in the three series. 
In the Senior Series, there were two districts, the win- 

101 ■ 



ners being as follows: 1 — Riversides of Toronto; 2 — 
Dental Hockey Club of Toronto. In Group No. 1 with 
Ei%'ersi.Ies were Queen's University of Kingston, 
228th Battalion of Toronto, and Aura Lee Hockey 
Club of Toronto. Riversides went through their group 
without a defeat, although Queen 's and Aura Lee both 
gave them hard games. Group No. 2 was in two sec- 
tions. In Section A wnth Dentals were St. Patrick's 
of Toronto. T. R. & A. A., and the 227th Battalion 
team of Hamilton. The Dentals lost the first two 
games of the season, and had to win the balance of 
their games to take the group honors. This thej' did, 
although they had several close calls. The 227th 
team started off in whirlwind fashion, but faded to- 
wards the finish. St. Patrick's showed great improve- 
ment near the end of the season, playing Dentals to 
a thirty-minute overtime tie. In Section B Preston 
beat Sarnia in home and home games. Dentals then 
played off with Preston and beat them handily in 
both games. ] 

The finals were in keeping with the best traditions 
of the O.H.A. Dentals and Riversides were very 
evenly matched, and attracted two great crowds. Den- 
tals, however, won both games, the first by 3 to 3, 
and the second by 2 to 1, and thereby demonstrated 
their superiority and the right to claim championship 
honors. 

In the Intermediate Series there were 44 teams 
entered, comprising 12 districts, the winners being as 
follows: No. 1. Depot Batteries, Kingston; No. 2, 
Peterboro, 247th Battalion; No. 3, Oshawa; No. 4, 
Brampton; No. 5, Hamilton; No. 6, Niagara Falls, 
176th Battalion; No. 7, Kitchener; No. 8, Milverton; 
No. 9, London, 118th Battalion; No. 10, Glencoe; No. 
11, Collingwood; No. 12, Owen Sound. There were 
two ties in this series. Brampton defeated Weston 
f) to 2 in a sudden death game at Toronto, and Owen 
Sound beat Markdalc on neutral ice at Chesley, 3 to 2 
in the play-off. In the second round 247th Battalion 
beat Depot Batteries; Oshawa won from Brampton; 
Hamilton beat 17Pth Battalion; Kitchener defeated 
Milverton; 118th Battalion won from Glencoe, ana 
Owen Sound beat Collingwood. In the third round 

102 



2'i7th Battalion won from Oshavva, Kitchener defeated 
Owen Sound, and Hamilton beat llSth Battalion of 
London. In the semi-finals Hamilton beat 2-17th Bat- 
talion, and Kitchener drew a bye. The finals were 
very keenly contested, but Hamilton secured such a 
big lead in the first game at home that Kitchener was 
unable to overcome it. The score at Hamilton was 
8 to 3, while Kitchener won the game at home by 
3 to 1. The teams were well matched, but Hamilton 
had the "punch," and played aggressive, clever 
hockey, and deserved the honors. 

The Junior series had 34 teams entered in 10 dis- 
tricts, the group winners being as follows: No. 1, 
Kingston; No. 2, Peterboro; No. 3, De LaSalle C. I.; 
No. 4A, Aura Lee of Toronto; No. 4B, Newmarket; 
No. 5, Kitchener; No. 6, Brantford; No. 7A, London 
A. A. A.; No. 7B, Ingersoll; No. 8, no winner; No. 9, 
Goderich, a bye; No. 10, Barrie. There were two 
group ties in this series, De LaSalle beating Unive- 
rsity Schools 3 to 2 in a single game in Toronto, and 
Kitchener winning from Stratford 5 to 4 iu two 
games. In the second round Kingston defeated Peter- 
boro, Aura Lee won from De LaSalle, and Ingersoll 
beat Brantford. Newmarket used an ineligible player 
against Barrie, and the latter club was awarded the 
round. London A. A. and Kitchener drew byes, and 
Goderich dropped out. In the third round Kitchener 
won from Barrie, London beat Ingersoll. and Aura Lee 
and Kingston drew byes. In the semi-finals Aura Leo 
beat Kingston, and Kitchener won from London. The 
finals provided a big upset. Kitchener won the first 
game at home by 3 to 2 after a very evenly played 
game, but in the return match at Toronto the Kitch- 
ener team was outclassed by Aura Lee, who won as 
they pleased by 16 goals to 2, thereby taking the 
round by IS to 5. The Aura Lee boys rose to tlie 
occasion, and every one of them played brilliant 
hockey. 

The players of the champion teams and the run- 
ners-up were as follows: Dental Hockey Club of To- 
ronto (Senior Champions) : J. Mac Sheldon, Charles K. 
Stewart, E. H. Hodgen, Dr. W. J. Laflamme, Willard

The NewTirarket junior club in the second round 
played David Pugsley. who was over age, on the cer- 
tificate of his brother, Harold, against Barrie, on 
Wednesday, January .31st, at Newmarket. The game 
and round were awarded to Barrie, and the Newmar- 
ket club suspended, the Pugsley brothers also being 
barred from amateur sport as a consequence. 

At the 28th annual meeting of the Association, 
held at Temple Building at 10 a.m. Saturday, Decern 
ber 1st, with the President-elect, Sheriff J. F. Paxton, 
of Whitby in the chair, it was decided to change the 
rules of the game, reducing the number of players 
from seven to six. with a one-man substitute and to 
retain the present penalty system. The convention 
also granted privilege to play to civilians on national 
service, who failed to qualify under residence rule; 
gave O.H.A. towns of under 5,000 population permis- 
sion to use players from adjacent towns where there 
is no O.H.A. team; adopted amendment in regard to 
oflf-side off a goalkeeper increasing the distance from 

104 



10 to 20 feet, so as to speed up the game and prevent 
sjrimmaging in front of goal; voted for the suspension 
of the annual meeting of the Canadian Amateur 
Hockey Association, and the retention of the present 
officers, and the continuance of the AVlan Cup com 
petition. 

Treasurer Turner reported a surplus of $5,973.50, 
and on motion of Mr. J. Eoss Eobertson, it was de- 
cided to invest $5,000 in Victory Loan bonds. 

The following officers were elected by acclamation: 
President, Sheriff J. F. Paxton, Whitby; fiirst vice-

Captain James T. Sutherland, of Kingston, and life 
member and chairman of the sub-committee J. Eosa 
Eobertson of Toronto, are also members of the exe- 
cutive committee for the season of 1917-18. 



YEAE OF 1917-18. 

The winter was cold and steady from early in De- 
cember, and the ice held right through to the finish 
except for the senior final at Kitchener and the junior 
final at Barrie, where soft ice was encountered. The 
winners of the three championships were the Kitchener 
Hockey Club, the Collingwood Hockey Club, and the 
De La Salle Collegiate team of Toronto. The Kitch- 
ener Club not only won the O.H.A. senior championship, 
but they also defended the Allan Cup, emblematic of 
the championship of the Dominion, in two series in 
Toronto. In the first series they easily defeated the 
Columbus Hockey Club of Port Arthur, champions ot 
Thunder Bay Association, and in the second series 
with the Ypres team of Winnipeg, champions of the 
Manitoba Hockey Association, won out after two 
wonderfully exciting games.

There were 71 teams in the three scries, the de- 
crease being chiefly in tlie Intermediate ranks. 

In the Senior Series there were two districts, the 
winners being Dental Hockey Club of Toronto, and 
Kitchener. The Dentals had their chief opposition 
from the Crescents of Toronto in their group, but St. 
Patrick's made it close for them on nearly every occa- 
sion. Queen's University of Kingston also played in 
thia group, and performed better on Toronto ice than 
they did at home. In Group No. 2 there "were five 
teams, viz., Kitchener, Hamilton, Sarnia, London Mili- 
tarj Hockey Club, and Preston. Kitchener had the 
best team in the district, and went through the group 
without a defeat. The finals between Kitchener and 
Dentals produced some great hockey, and attracted two 
large crowds. The game in Toronto was a tie, 4 all, 
while at Kitchener the Dentals were beaten 3 to 0, 
thereby giving Kitchener the championship bv 7 goals 
to 4. ■ 

In the Intermediate Series there were 20 teams en- 
tered, comprising 9 districts, the winners being as fol- 
lows: No. 1, Depot Batteries, Kingston; No. 2, Oshawa; 
No. 3, Port Colborne; No. 4, Gait; No. 5, Thamesville 
Unions; No- 6, Brampton; No. 7, Collingwood; No. 8, 
Toronto Military District League; No. 9, Sarnia. 

In the second round Oshawa defeated Depot Bat- 
teries of Kingston, Port Colborne won from Gait, 
Thamesville Unions beat Brampton, and Collingwood 
and Toronto Military League drew byes. Sarnia de- 
faulted. In the next round Oshawa beat Thamesville 
Unions, and Collingwood won from Port Colborne and 
the Toronto Military League champions. In the finals 
Collingwood and Oshawa had a magnificent struggle, 
requiring three games to reach a decision. At Colling- 
wood the home team won bj'^ 4 to 1, and the return 
game at Oshawa the home team won by 3 to 0, tieing it 
up on the round. The third, and deciding game was 
played in Toronto on March 22nd, and won by Colling- 
wood by 2 to 1, who thereb}^ annexed the championship 
by 6 goals to 5 in three games. 

The Junior Series had 40 teams entered in 13 dis- 
tricts, the group winners being as follows: 1, Cornwall 
Junior Hockey League; 2, Kingston; 3, Oshawa; 4, 

107 



Peterboro; 5, University of Toronto Schools; 6, De La 
Salle Collegiate Institute; 7. Woodstock; 8, Seaforth; 
9, Kitchener; 10, Owen Sound; 11, Barrie; 12, Midland; 
13, Dunnville. In the second round Kingston beat 
Cornwall, Oshawa were beaten by Peterboro, University 
of Toronto Schools won from Dunnville, Woodstock 
beat Seaforth, Kitchener won from Owen Sound, and 
Barrie beat Midland. In the third round De La Salle 
beat Peterboro, Barrio won from Kitchener, U. T. S 
defeated Woodstock, and Kingston drew a bye. Tu 
the next round De La Salle beat Kingston and U. T. S. 
while Barrie drew a bye. The final games between 
Do La Salle and Barrie were strenuously contested. De 
La Salle won the game in Toronto by 6 to 3, while 
Barrie won the return game on their own ice by 5 to 
4. This gave the championship to De La Salle by a 
total score of 10 goals to 8. The teams were very 
evenly matched, qnd play was close all the way.

The Niagara Falls Club protested N. J. Gildner and 
Earl Miers of Port Colborne under the residence rule, 
but after an exhaustive enquiry the protest was dis- 
missed. The Kitchener Union Jacks played Earl K. 
Jamieson against Barrie in the first game at Barrie, 
and the sub-committee finding that he was not eligible 
under the age rule, cancelled his certificate, and at the 
request of the Barrie Club, ordered the game re-played. 
The game played at Seaforth on February 8th, and 
won by Mitchell, was ordered re-played because Mitch- 
ell played H. A. Tuer, who was ineligible. The Cobourg 
junior club was suspended for playing two boys, Clif- 
ford Maher and Joseph E. Drumm, on certificates of 
other players. The protest was lodged by the Oshawa 
Club, and was not defended. The Barrie Club unsuc- 
cessfully protested the De La Salle Collegiate club 
on the ground that John Cain did not qualify under 
the age rule. The De La Salle club established the fact 
that Cain was born March 22, 1899, and baptized 
under that name, though he was incorrectly registered 
at the Parliament Buildings under the name of Den- 
nis Francis Cain. 

At the 29th annual meeting of the Association, 
held at the Temple Building, Toronto ,on Saturday De- 
cember 7th, at 10 a.m., with the president, Sheriff J. 
F. Paxton, in the chair, it was decided to amend the 
playing rules so as to allow for two substitutes to be 
used at any time and an extra goalkeeper in cases of 
injury to the goalkeeper, and abolished offside rule 
on defending team within a zone twenty feet out from 
its own nets; also to number all players on the ice and 
to penalize habitual "offside" loafing. An amend- 
ment to change date of annual meeting to third Sat- 
urday in November was defeated, as was also one re- 
quiring players to remain with the club with which 
they sign until that club desires to release them. The 
war-time residence clauses were extended to cover the 
current season. It was decided to consider the estab- 
lishment of a memorial of an enduring character to 
O.H.A. members who have fallen on the field of war.. 

The retiring treasurer reported a balance in the 
bank of $2,107.12 in addition to $5,000 in Victory 
Bonds.

vote: 

"Moved bv Francis Nelson, Toronto, seconded by 
Frank Hyde, Woodstock, that the Ontario Hockey As- 
sociation, in annual convention, and at the height of 
its success as a governing body for the national winter 
game, bereft through the death of Mr. John Eoss Rob- 
ertson, life member and past president, of the aid. 
counsel, and guidance so unsparingly bestowed by him 
on our affairs for more than a score of years, hereby 
acknowledges with heartfelt gratitude those invalu- 
able services which went so far to bring the Asso- 
ciation to its preser* bigh position, and records its 
deepest regret at the loss to the Association and the 
community at largo suffered by the death of one who 
so pre-eminently combined the qualities of a good 
sportsman and a good citizen, and in both capacities 
stood as a shining example of the good which an earn- 
est man may do his fellows."

YEAR OF 1918-19. 

There wjw a marktsl increase in teams as a roflult 
of the armistice being declared just previous to the 
annual nieetimg. This increase wa,s most noticeable in 
the internie<liate scries. The winter turned out to be 
unu.sually mild an<l many games were played on very 
fioor ice. The winners of the three cilinmpionships were 
the Hamilton Tiger Hockey CluJ), the CoUinigwood 
Hockey Club and the University of Toronto Schools 
Hockey Club. The Hamilton Club also successfully 
defended the Allan Cup, emhleniatic of the senior cham- 
pionship of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Associa- 
tion. The Quol>ec champions defaulted to the O. H. A. 

110 



( 



chaniipioiiis iu tlie first iioumdj, wthile theiSelkirkSj.of Mani- 
toba, eliminated the Columbus team, of Port Arthur, 
Thunder Bay cliampions, by 23 g'oals to 8. The "West- 
ern champions from Selkirk then met th© Hamilton 
team in Toronto and were defeated by one goal in a 
two-gaime series, overtime being ne'cessary in the second 
game to decide the winners. The Tigers won the first 
game by 6 to 1, and at the expiratio^n of full time in 
the second game Selkirks had scored 5 goals to 0. 
Hamilton sicored their only goal of the .game in the 
first minute and a half of overtime, and as there was 
no further score in the balance of overtime play Ham- 
ilton wom the round and the cup by 7 goals to 6. It 
was a sensational finisih to a splendid series. In mem- 
ory of those who fell in the war the Association de- 
cided to present what is known as "The O. H. A. 
Memorial Oup" for Dominion-wide competition in the 
junior series, and' the Canadian Amateiur Ho'Ckey Asso- 
ciatioin, at its aninual meeting, adopted the trophy as 
the championship junior cup for the whole Domiinion. 
The O. H. A. Memorial Cup was successfully defended 
by the University of Toronto iSchools' team, junior 
champions of the O. H. A., first against the Melvilles 
of Montreal, junior champions of Quebec, in a sudden- 
death game by the score of 8 to 2 and afterwards against 
the Patricias of Eegiua, Saskatchewan, junior cham- 
pions of Western Canada and winners of the Abbott 
Oup, by 14 to .3 and 15 to 5. All gamts were played 
in Toronto under the ausipices of the O. H. A. and con- 
stituted the first Dominion-wide competition ever held 
for junior clubs. 

There were 93 teams in the three series. In the 
senior there were two districts, the winners beiag.. No. 
1, Hamilton Tigers; No. 2, St. Patricks, Toronto. Ham- 
ilton and Dentals were tie on the round after a doiible 
schedule liad been played and homc-and-home games 
were played to decide the winner, the Tigers winning 
the round by one goal after two exciting contests. The 
Veterans' Club of" Toronto had a team in this group, 
Ixit did not win a game. In Group No. 2 the three 
teams, iSt. Patricks and Newman Hall of Toronto, and 
Kitchener, the 'cluampio-iTs and cup-holders, were very 
evenly matched and ' every game was a battle to the 
finish. St. Patricks played a tie game at Kitchener 

111 



on soft ice, after thirty minutes' overtime play, and 
by winning the play-off of this game at Toronto, cap- 
tured the group honors. The Newman Hall team was 
always a keen contender. Hamilton won the cham- 
pionship by defeating St. Patricks in the finals by a 
total of 11 goals to 8. In the first game, at Hamilton, 
Tigers easily won from St. Pats by 10 to 3, but in the 
retuTn game at Toronto St. Pats turnod the tables and 
won by 5 to 1. 

In the intermediate series there were 40 teams en- 
tered, comprising 12 distriota, the winners being as 
follows: No. 1, Cornwall Hockey Leatgue; No. 2, King- 
ston; No. 3, Osihiawa; No. 4, Hamilton; No. 5, Niagara 
Falls; No. 6, London; No. 7, Preston; No. 8, Seaforth; 
No. 9, Collingwood; No. 10, Gravenhurst; No. 11, To- 
ronto Beaches Leaigue; No. 13, Glencoe-Thamesville. 
In round two Kingston beat Cornwall, Oshawa won 
from Gravenliurst, Hamilton beat Preston, London de- 
feated Glencoe-Thamesville, Collingwood beat Niagara 
Falls. Seaforth and Toronto Beaches drew a bye. In 
the third round Kingston beat Oshawa, Collingwood 
won from Hamilton, Seafort^h beat London. Toronto 
Beaches Hockey League drew a bye. In the semi-finals 
CollingTFood defeated Seaforth and Kingston won by 
default from Beaches. Owing to the mild weather and 
the soft ice, the finals between Collingwood and King- 
ston were played on the artificial ice at Toronto and 
resulted in two splendid games. Collingwood won both 
contests, by 6 to 4 and 3 to 2, and thereby captured the 
championship by 9 goals to 6. 

The junior series had 43 teams entered in the 14 
districts, the group winners being as follows: No. 1, 
Cornwall Hockey League; No. 2 A, Kingston; No. 2B, 
Picton; No. 3, Lindsay; No. 4, Belleville; No. 5, Uni- 
versrty of Toronto Schools; Nos. 6 and 7, Aura Lee; 
No. 8, Woodstock; No. 9, Kitcihencr; No. 10, Stratford;

Subsequent to the junior final game in Toronto, on 
Saturday, March 15, the Woodstock Club asked for a 
meeting of the Executive to investigate a complaint 
tha^ the iclothirag and skates of the Woodstock team 
had been tampered with prior to said game, in the 
dressing-room at Arena Gardens. The committee ioun<l 
that there was no evidence that the skates had been 

113 




( Al'l. IAS. I. SUTHERLAND 
KINGSTON 
Former President O.H.A. 



tampered with, and this part of the co'inplaint was not 
pressed. It was shown, however, that five straps, which 
had beeai left on a radiator, had been smeared with 
pepper and eowitch by someone unknown, but this was 
discovered by C'oach Breen of the Woodstock team 
prior to the dressing of the team and three new ones 
procured. It was admitted by the Woodstock manage- 
ment that none of the straps tampered with had been 
put on or worn, and that no player had suffered any 
physical discomfort. It was also shown that every 
latitude was offered the Woodstoek team by the officials 
befcre the game to procure new clothing before going 
on the icei, and that the refereeis were instructed to 
hold the game until the Woodstock team were per- 
fectly ready to proceed with the play. In view of this 
evidence, it was decided that no action should be taken 
by the Executive and the game should stand as played. 
Investigation by city and private detectives failed to 
discover the culprits, though both report-ed that, in 
their opinion, every reasonable precaution had been 
taken by the Arena Gardens management to prevent 
such an oocurrence, by the employment of watchmen 
and keeping the doors of the rooms and eorrido-rs 
locked. 

The 30th annual meeting af the Association was 
held at the Temple Building, Toronito, on Saturd)ay, 
Dec. 6, at 10 a.m., with the President, R. M. Glover, 
Peterboro, in the cliair. The following policy was 
unanimously adopted: "In cities anid towns desirous 
of playing in the senior series no club is to be ad- 
mitted to me^mbersihiji unless it represents what is 
regarded by the O. H. A. Executive as a bona-fide, 
permanent and general established amateur dub or 
association, and that in all towns and villages repre- 
sented in the O. H. A. in any series precedence be given 
to civic amateur organizations representing the whole 
commnnity. " It was also decided to adopt the sug- 
gestion to have all hockey i)layers hold A. A. U. of 
0. cards. That will come into operation next year. 
It was decided that the winner of the intermediate 
championship should be allowed to comj>ete for the 
Allan Cup through a play-oflf with the senior O. H. A. 
champions. Whore a club has both senior and inter- 
mediate teams the seniors must register at least six 

115 



bona fide players, iiione of whom can play in the inter- 
mediate series during the current season. The clauses 
in the re«ideace rule giving soldiers special privileges 
were withdrawn. It was decided to increase the mile- 
age for clubs to 15 cents a mile for ten men instead of 
10 cents for eight men. Referees will be paid at the 
same rate. The Executive may appoint two referees for 
any game. The Treasurer's report showed a balance 
of $2,212.30 and $5,000 Victory Bonds. 

Officers were elected as follows: President, R. M. 
G-lover, Peterboro; 1st Vice-President, A. E. Ck)pelanid, 
Midland; 2nd Vice-President, W. A. Fry, Dunnville; 
Past President and Treasurer, Sheriff J. F. Paxton, 
Whitby; A. A. U. of C. Governor, Francis Nelson, To- 
ronto; Secretary, W. A. Hewitt, Toronto; Executive 
Committee, R. Butler, Lindsay; Geo. B. McKay, King- 
ston; W. W. Davidson, Toronto; "Wm. Easson, Strat- 
ford; (appointed), H. H. Ferguson, I^ondon; Angus D. 
Campbell, Cobalt.

PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Delivered at the 30th Annual Meeting, held at tho 
Temple Building, Toronto, on Saturday, December 6th, 
1919, by the President, R. M. Glover, Peterboj-o. 



To the Officers and Members of the Ontario Hockey 
Association: 

Gentlemen : 

This, the 30th Annual Meeting of your historic 
Association, is being held under more normal conditions 
than any previous meeting during the past five years, 
and I feel that I should express, on behalf of the 
Oiiicers and Clubs of the O.H.A., the pleasure with 
which we welcome home from their gallant services over- 
seas, the splendid men from the Senior, Intermediate 
and Junior Series of our Association, who in the past 
year have returned to us. 

Familiar names are re-appearing in the sporting 
pages of the newspapers, after three or four years' ab- 
sence — the names of former O.H.A. Players, who fight- 
ing in France, in the North Sea with the British Navy, 
or in the Air Forces of the Empire, have helped to 
establish the imperishable fame of Canada. 

I am sure you all rejoice with me in the home- 
coming of our comrades and in the fact that they will 
be found again this winter engaged in our great na- 
tional winter sport, the horrors of warfare, we hope, 
fading out of their recollection. And in welcoming 
them home, we will not have forgotten those who will 
not come back, the gallant players of our Association 
who sleep beneath the wooden crosses of France and 
Belgium. Their memory will be ever dear to us. 

The season of 1918-19, I am happy to be able to 
say, in spite of unusually mild weather, was a splendid 
one from all points of view. The Secretary's report 
will cover the details of all the games, but I will take 
the liberty here of mentioning several of the special 
features. The Hamilton Club, our senior winners, suc- 
cessfully defended the Allan Cup against all comers. 
Collingwood, for the third time since 1910, won the 
Intermediate Series, while the U.T.S. Team, winners of 

117 



the Junior Series, also captured the O.H.A. Memorial 
Cup, emblematic of the Junior Championship of Canada. 
All Clubs in the Association, 1 am sure, are proud of 
the records established by these worthy Champions, and 
to them I extend my heartiest congratulations, and 
assure them that the prestige of our Association has 
been enhanced greatly by the extra honors won during 
the season. 

In some respects, this is to be one of the most im- 
portant meetings the Ontario Hockey Association has 
held for some time, as you will require to deal with a 
iletermined policy outlined by the sub-committee, fully 
considered and accepted by the Executive, and to-day 
to be presented to you at the Annual Meeting of the 
Association, with the unanimous recommendation that 
you accept the report of the Sub-committee in this mat- 
ter. I refer now to the notice that wijl be given that 
all Senior Clubs must be represented by what we regard 
as a bona fide and permanent Amateur Club or Asso- 
(iatiou, and that in any series precedence shall be jriven 
to Civic Amateur Organizations. We hope that the 
tendency to have iiockey in some of the cities, towns and 
villages in our Assocdation, controlled by a small clique, 
as has been unfortunately too often the case, will be 
checked by this amendment, which, we believe, will be 
an iniportant stejt that will benefit not only hockey but 
all other forms of amateur sport. 

It is felt that our decision in this matter will lead 
to the formation throughout Ontario of a large number 
of Amateur Athletic Associations, which will assume 
charge of all brandies of sport in tiieir neigliborhood. 
If it has this happy result, the cuniulativ** effect will 
be felt in all j)arts of the Province, where clean amateur 
sport is desired. 

The Ontario Hockey Association is looked to 
fliroughout Canada to take the lead in all matters that 
will tend to keep the game of Hockey clean, both on 
and off the ice. The object of the .Association is to 
I>rovide the young men of this Province with a widely 
competitiAe oj>|K)rtunity to be first-class athletes, and a 
first-class athlete in any game shoud bear all the ear- 
marks of a gentleman, and if your officers, in the course 
of thr-ir term of ofTice, see faults they do not rectify, 
tiiey are not living up to the ideals whii'h pi()rni)tc<l the 
formation of the Association. 

118 



A state of affairs existing that will allow of a youug 
man jjosing as an amateur in sport when in reality he 
is a professional, is not conducive to the betterment of 
that young man 's morals, or of developing a strong 
character, and cannot help but be an adverse factor in 
a business or professional career. 

We have no quarrel -with the open professional who 
conducts himself properly and plaj^s the game fair, and 
there are any numljer of them -uho do, but as the recog- 
nized and most influential Amateur body in Canada, we 
must take issue with the hidden professional in our 
ranks, and meet the situation in such a manner as will 
tend to give the players whom we control the proper 
surroundings that will assist in guiding them in right 
channels, so that when their athletic career is over, 
they will have^ no regrets and will have developed into 
men of ambition, straightforwardness, resourcefulness, 
honesty and other good qualities, that a proper and 
carefully looked-after sporting career is bound to assist 
materially in bringing about. 

I am sorry to have to state that if application is 
made for certificates to play in this Association by some 
of our most prominent players, that your Executive 
have recommended that they be not issued. This drastic 
action was not taken without the most careful investiga- 
tion, and there was no other course that could have been 
followed, consistent with our conception of what our 
duties as officers of your AssiO'ciation should be. In this 
action Ave also ask your support and co-operation. 

The resignation of Mr. Frank Hyde, of Woodstock, 
Second Vice-President of the Association, is a loss to 
the Association. His best efforts were always given to 
the Association. His judgment was excellent, and his 
decision on all questions fair and impartial. The Execu- 
tive regrets the circumstances which brought about Mr. 
Hyde's resignation, for as a future President, he would 
have been a credit to the Association. 

We will miss greatly, for the balance of the season, 
the excellent services of Mr. Francis Nelson, who was 
a member of the subcommittee, where his careful 
handling of difficult problems in the course of a season 's 
hockey, made him a most valued member. 

The financial statement, when presented, will prove 
to be a very satisfactory one. As our playing rules 
have been adopted by the Canadian Amateur Hockey 

110 



Association, in order to provide the same style ot 
hockey liy all amateur bodies in Canada, any proposed 
changes in the paying rules can only be discussed and 
referred to the C.A.H.A. to be dealt with. The amend- 
ments to the constitution I leave for your consideration. 
In your Secretary, Mr. Hewitt, and Treasurer, Sheriff 
Paxton, I can assure you you have most excellent offi- 
cials, and to them and to the members of the outgoing 
Executive, T wish to express my heartiest thanks for 
their co-operation and for the constant attention to their 
important duties, and assistance in guiding the destinies 
of your Association, during the past season, in a man- 
ner that I hope will have met with your approval. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. M. GLOVER, 4 

President Ontario Hockey Association

netting, or is passed by any of his team mates within 
a space of 20 feet out from the goal and extending to 
the side of the rink, and a line shall be drawn across 
the ice of the rink to desigilate the distance.

12. The puck may be stopped with the hand, but 
not carried or held or knocked on by any parrt of the 
body. 

CHARGING, TRIPPING, ETC. 

13. No player shall raise his stick above his shoul- 
der or throw it along the ice. Charging, tripping, 

140 



collaring, kicking, cross-checking, or pushing shall not 
be allowed. And the referee must rule off the ice, for 
any time in his discretion, a player who in the opinion 
of the referee, has deliberately offended against the 
above rule. If a player makes any unfair or rough 
play, or disputes any decision of the referee, or uses 
any foul or abusive language, the referee may rule 
hira off for the remainder of the game or for such 
time as he may deem expedient, and no substitute 
shall be allowed. If, in the opinion of the referee, a 
defending player has deliberately committed a foul 
to prevent a score he shall not stop the play until 
that play has been completed. 

WHEN THE PUCK LEAVES THE ICE. 
14. When the puck goes off the ice behind the goal 
line it shall be brought out by the referee to a point 
hve yards in front of the goal line, on a line at right 
angles thereto, from the point at which it left the ice, 
and there faced.

be similarly faced three yards from the side. 

When the puck hits the referee play shall cease

lo. The goal-keeper must not during play, lie, sit or 
kneel upon the ice; he may stop the puck with his 
hands, but shall not throw or hold it. He may wear 
pads, but must not wear a garment such as would give 
him undue assistance in keeping goal. The referee 
must rule off the ice, for any time in his discretion, 
a player who, in the opinion of the referee, has offend- 
ed against this rule. 

CHANGE OF PLAYEES. 
16. Two extra players may act as substitutes on 
each team during a match (making eight players alto- 
gether), and a change of players may be made at any 
time by the substitute or substitutes reporting to the 
referee, when that official has stopped the play, but 
must not get on the ice while play is in progress; such 
substitute or substitutes must be all ready to play and 
must take his or their position without delaying the 

141 



game. Tlie player for whom the substitution is made 
nHist also leave the ice promptlj' when the substitute 
appears. In case of injury to the goal-keeper an extra 
substitute may be allowed, but he must play in goal 
and in no other position. Should any player be injured 
during the match, break a skate, or from any accident 
be compelled to leave the ice, his side shall immediately 
put on a substitute to equalize the teams, and the 
match proceed until such time as the player so com- 
pelled to retire because of accident is ready to return- 
Should more than two players of one team (eixclusive 
of the goal-keeper), be compelled to retire because of 
accident, the opposing side shall drop a man to equal- 
ize the teams. No player shall resume play until he 
has received permission from the referee to go on. In 
event of any dispute, the matter shall at once be de- 
cided by the referee. 

STOPPAGES. 

17. Should any match be stopped by the referee by 
reason of any infringement of any of the rules or 
because of an accident or change of players, the puck 
shall be faced again at the spot where it was last 
played before such infringement, ^iccident or change 
of players s-hall have occurred.
