|GENERAL YEAR END 1932
Soccer as it is familiarly known in the country of football, is considered to be Newfoundland's national game but for some years it was felt that its popularity was on the wane, in 1932, however there were distinct signs of a revival of interest and there is reason to feel it is fast coming back into its now.
Due to the work of the Executive of the league and more interest shown by the several teams, the Senior League games were better this year than for a number of years past. The teams were in better condition and exhibition an improved brand of play. Three distinct series were played as well as several special games.
In the championship series victory went to Mount Cashel team and the Tie Cup series the Holy Cross were the victors whilst in a special tie cup series the C. L. B. won out. The games were hard fought and most interesting and good football was shown by all.
The league arranged special games wherever possible. Visiting warship were played teams form the Red Cross and Furness Lines were also played . In most of the games city aggegations were victorious. The best exhibition for the year, however, was seen when the teams from the H. M. S. Dragon played. here and defeated the City 6 -1. On the scond game through the result of the first was a draw.
The Most Valuable Player
A special medal was offered by the president of the league for the player considered to be the most valuable to his tem during the year, and was awarded to Mr. Mike Reddy of the Holy Cross team on the decision of the judges Messrs. R. E. Innes and H. J. Phelan, close followers of the game.
The City League
The City league were also well contested and the numbers show a lively interest in their league. Championship was again won by Parker & Monroe's teams who had to play for the honors with the Railway team.
Not sine the early days of rowing was there so much interest in this sport as in 1932. The number of competitors in the various regattas was larger than ever before and some splendid material was developed. For some time it was uncertain as to weather any regatta would be held owing to restrictions placed on the Boat Clubs, but after some lengthy period everything was straightened out and the day was more successful than ever. The annual regatta day was outstanding in many particulars. There was a feeling that because of general conditions the Regatta would not be successful but this theory was found to be without foundation.
St. Joseph's Regetta which takes second place to the annual event was favored with better weather than ever and with more success. Regetta held on Octogon Lake in connection with Topsail and Manuels parish , on Kent's Pond in connection with Portugal Cove Parish , on Quidi Vidi in connection with Outer Cove Parish, and on Mundy Pond in connection with the garden party for St. Teresa's Parish were all supported well and were featured by splended rowing and keen competition.
No billiard tournaments were held during the year except those within the confines of various clubs . Many people would like to see a revival of the championship and club competition but nothing was done in the matter during the year.

GOVERNMENT BUILDING WRECKED BY MISSILES.
Baton Charge Starts Destructive Riot
Public Demonstration Turns to riot When Order to Police to Use Batons as Doors are Forced Awakens Anger of Crowed - Windows and Doors Smashed in Colonial Building, Nearly Score Police and Civilians Injured.
PREMIER ESCAPES WRATH MOD THROUGH PROTECTION CLERGY
Every window of the Colonial Building is glassless: the prime Minister practically a refugee, the law of enforcement of the city turnover to the authority of ex-service men, as the result of discord which marked the culmination of weeks of protest and dissatisfaction with maladministration of the government. A huge demonstration of citizens in peaceful and law-abiding protest yesterday afternoon witnessed a sudden transition, through tactless management by those in authority, to an outbreak of violence that was understandable if it could not be condoned.
At 2.15 p.m. yesterday the Majestic Theatre was filled with men and women, and Duckworth Street was a mass of moiling humanity waiting the start of the parade to the Colonial Building to present to the Honorable the House of Assembly the resolutions passed the previous night calling on the Legislature to investigate certain charges made against the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State.
Before the parade started the audience in the Majestic was addressed by Mr. H. A. Winter, K. C., who outlined the procedure to be followed and implored the people not to make any infraction of the law or breach of the peace, for if they did then the whole spirit of the movement would be nullified.
BEGGED FOR PEACEFUL METHODS.
An announcement was made the Ex-service men, Navel Reservists and members of the Mercantile Marine were to fall in first and after these citizens in general. The route was along New Gower Street to Queen Street, down this street to Water Street, along Water Street to Prescott Street, up Prescott to Duckworth Street to Cochrane Street, up Cochrane Street and Military Road to the Colonial Building. About 2,000 started in the parade and by the time they arrived at the House some 1500 others ined in, both men and women.
Before the delegation from the committee, Mr. J,. M.Howell, Trv. W. E. Godfrey, Mr, J, H. Devine, H. A. Winter K.C., were admitted to the house the Guards band played several selections. At 3.30 p.m., the delegation was admitted and presented their petition. Whilst they were standing at the bar of the House, there was a commotion outside of the door of the House and Rev. Mr. Godfrey was called out. Those outside, awaiting the decision of the house became impatient and started to break in the door, to find out the cause.
TRIED TO REFORM PARADE
The committee, when they were notified that disturbance was growing outside came out and attempted to reform the parade back to the Majestic. In an effort to lead off with the flag some of the crowd sought to prevent its removal and a struggle occurred. Someone started the National anthem, ex-officers of the regiment rallied around , and there was a short lull, but the struggle for the flag was renewed and it was torn from its staff and taken inside the building . The parade to a considerable number led by the Guards band and members of the committee returned to the hall to report the result of their visit to the chamber. These were much surprised on leaving the hall to learn that serious trouble had broken out at Colonial Building.
Soon there was a breach in the doors and as men started to force their way in the police inside some twenty or more with batons drawn, hit every head at it appeared . Then police under orders , charged down the steps driving bystanders before them , many of them innocent spectators. This seemed to get the crow going. Soon there was turmoil and the youth present got out of hand and pelted stones and other missiles through the windows. The mounted police, because of the horses, and their effort to keep order, made further trouble. Constable Lake who was mounted on one of the horses was forcibly dragged off the horse and when on the ground hit with pickets and stones. Some of the spectators interfered and he was lifted off the ground and put in a motor car and taken to the General Hospital. Constable Layman and a civilian named Healey are also in the General Hospital . At an early hour this morning the Hospital stated that Constables Lake and Layman are suffering from scalp wounds and Mr. Healey from injured foot. None of these men are seriously injured.
15 TREATED AT DRUGSTORE.
The representative of the Daily new was on the ground floor of the building when the police charged those assembled outside the house, but from reliable eyewitnesses the following was secured. The police evidently acting under orders, with overcoats off, and batons drawn , charged the people hitting right and left, and doing much bodily injury. As a result of this charge O'Mara Drug Store alone treated 15 injured, including a small child of 10 years old who was hit on the head and his ear cut.
By the time the youths in the crowd had made pretty good headway, with what apparently they though was their job, of smashing all the windows in the building, the doors also, and the window sashes. Stones and pickets out of the park fence were used. Vandalism ran rampant. The rooms occupied by Miss Morris , Librarian of the legislative library, were ransacked her piano was taken out of her room to the park, where it was completely wrecked. Her private papers and books were destroyed, and the fittings completely wrecked. Two deliberate attempts were made to set the building on fire. In both cases the incipient fired was nipped before there was any headway. The Colonial Building last night was nothing but a wreck.
After a considerable time after the House has been adjourned by the speaker, members of the House one by one came down stairs. When leaving the building, none of the members of the House were molested. The crowds outside were awaiting the exit of the Prime Minister and the Inspector General. About 5 o'clock Mr. Cashin and Sir William Coaker left the lower flat of the building and went to government House where he tendered his resignation to the governor. On Mr. Cashin return, from the steps of the Colonial Building, he announced that fact and stated that the Prime Minister would resign today . He also said that the House will convene this afternoon at 3 p.m., and asked all the men to go home and return at that hour. The men's demanded was that the prime Minister should resign immediately and not wait. All during this time the members of the Constabulary were not allowed to leave the building, being pelted with stone and sticks every time they made any attempt to come out.
SAVED BY CLERGY
About 7.30 p.m. the Prime Minister left the building, accompanied by Mr. L .E. Emerson and Mr. Myles Murray, and surrounded by 10 or 12 men. Just as the prime Minister got to the waiting car he was recognized and the crowd made a rush. Those with him hurried him down Colonial Street and pushed him into a residence. Rev. Fr. Pippy stood on the steps of the house and with him were Rev. W. E. Godfrey, Rev. Fr. Gibbs and Rev. C. H. Johnson. When a search of the house was made the prime Minister had made his escape though a back door. Before he made his exit from the house, Rt. Rev. Msgr, MacDermott, all the priest at the Palace, Rev. H. L. Pike, Rev. Dr. Wylie Clark and other clergymen were in the grounds surrounding the house exhorting the men return to their homes.
About 8.30 p.m. the Inspector General Made his escape by way of the rear of the building, and sometime after 11 p.m. when the War Veterans patrol came on duty at the Colonial Building the members of the police force left.
At the request of the Inspector General when in captivity in the house of Assembly, Lt. Col. Paterson issued a call over Station VONA for all ex-service men to report for duty to take over patrol of the city last night, according to a statement made to the Daily News last night by Lt. Col Paterson, president of the G. W. V. A.
Five patrols of about 20 men each were placed on the street before eleven p.m. to look after the banks the West end Controllers, Central and East End, the House of Assembly , shopping district and Government House.
Between six and seven o'clock last night about 8 men secured a crow bar and broke off the gate at the East End Controllers. A little time later they came back and broke in the door and took about 40 bottles of assorted liquor. Twice before eleven o'clock the West End Controllers was looted and a great portion of the stock removed from the building. At about 1.30 a.m. some of the crowd who were at the West End came down to the Central controller's.
Early this morning windows in some of the stores on New Gower Street were broken and goods taken from the windows. an attempt was to break and enter the premises of the Marine Agencies but this was frustrated by the police. A general order was issued late last night calling out for duty all members of the police force. An appeal is made this morning by the G. W. V. A. for 250 Veterans and other citizens to volunteer for duty on the City today.
THURSDAY APRIL 7 1932
CITY SETTLES DOWN - NORMAL CONDITIONS
Attempt to Break Into Controller's Dept. and Some Stores broken Into Only Disturbances
Splendid work By Special Police.
ONE THOUSAND MEN NOW SWORN IN
With the exception of one organized attempt to break into the Central Control Department yesterday afternoon and the glass in several stores in all parts of the city broken with the evident intention of looting, the city was quite yesterday and last night and the citizens went to rest with easy minds because of the splendid work which was being performed by the volunteer police under the direction of the G. W. V. A. (Great War Veterans Association)
After daylight yesterday morning it was seen that during the night many of the stores on New Gower Street and several on Water Street had been victimized after the glass had been broken. In one or two places entrances were made and goods stolen but generally only what could be taken out of the windows are missing when the proprietors were called. Many drunks were on the streets, the result of the break-in to the West End Control Department, but they were cleared off by the police and G. W. V. A. Nearly twenty were arrested and others were sent to their homes. During the forenoon everything was at a standstill, but the opportunity was availed of to organize the special police and how efficiently this was done was evident in the afternoon and last night.
ATTEMPTED BREAK IN CONTROLLER'S DEPT.
At three o'clock a very large crowd assembled at the Colonial Building grounds, in the expectation that there would be a session of the House of Assembly. A number of those who were prominent in the rioting on the previous day, gathered in front of the building and were addressed by some of their members who claimed to have been injured on the previous day. Finding that the Assembly was not in session and because Mr. Cashin had told them on the previous day that it would sit, a number of them left the grounds to seek him. They proceeded to his office on Duckworth Street but finding that he was not there declared their intention of going to his home. Proceeding west on Duckworth Street, however, they reached no farther than the Controller's where they gathered around and endeavored to force their way into the building. The first attempt having failed, some of the younger members of the party went to Bowring's wharf where they secured a large stick of wood and a number of "gaffs" with which they returned to the attack. The large stick was used as a battering ram and with its help they broke one of the panels in the door as well as the glass. The patrol on duty there withstood the raiders until the arrival of reinforcements.
Whilst the men were gathered on Duckworth Street, Mr. Cashin arrived and addresses them. They told him they wanted larger dole orders and he promised to immediately see Sir Percy Thompson and Mr. Penson in this connection . he said he would tell them what the answer was to-day.
STATEMENT BY MR. ALDERDICE
At six o'clock yesterday evening Mr. F. C. Alderdice, leader of the Opposition , issued a message, which was broadcast from local stations, read wherever crowds were assembled and posted in various places throughout the city. The text of this message appears on page 3.
Last night one thousand men had registered for special police duty at the C. L. B. Armory and after being sworn were detailed for duty at various parts of the city.
One contingent was on duty at the Colonial Building and others were in charge of other public buildings, Water Street premises, etc., whilst several patrolled the streets. The C. L. B. Armory was used as the headquarters and reliefs were sent out at regular intervals. Motor trucks were also in attendance and three or four of them were continually on the move. At the Masonic Club, the C. L. B. Armory and the Crosbies hotel, hot tea, coffee and oxo was supplied to the men during the night.
Reports that an attack was to be made on the Central Liquor Store after midnight came in, but it did not materialize, however, and after that hour the patrols doing duty on the streets rounded up all stragglers and sent them home or if they showed signs of being troublesome they were arrested . About half a dozen were taken to the police station before daylight.
Amongst the stores entered after midnight were those of Butler Bros., water Street, J. M. Brown at the Cross roads and William Mugford, Munroe Street. There was little destruction however as the "specials" were on the scene very soon after the alarm.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Harry Brown, of Mullock Street, who was in the Colonial Building grounds and was knocked down by a horse, had his leg slightly injured, was taken to the General Hospital.
About ten o'clock last night a lady who lives on Brazil's Square, fainted as she was standing on Duckworth Street. She was taken into the Daily News office and after about five minutes she regained consciousness and was able to return home, assisted by a friend.
About three o'clock this morning a motor car driven by Mr. A. Coady going west on Duckworth Street, ran full tilt into the wire barricade, stretched across the street, and carried away a section of the iron railing on the east side of the steps by the Avalon Telephone Company office. The car was not damaged.
Editor Daily News:
Dear Sir: - It had been stated in the press and elsewhere that orders were issued from the inside of the Colonial Building to the police to charge the gathering outside, on yesterday, with their batons. I wish to state that this statement is entirely untrue. No orders were issued. What really happened was, the ten or twelve men inside of the main entrance, on looking through the space in the main door where the panel had been broken in by an iron bar, saw Constable Hearn being roughly treated and of their own accord rushed out to his rescue, Supt. O'Neill had just left me after a conference and had gone out the side entrance and I had gone into the Speaker's hallway.

Missed the Point Of Demonstration
Last night, Noel Thomas, broadcasting for the Literary Digest, and over the Columbia System, made the following announcement "United press reports that 15,000 un-employed men, protesting against unsatisfactory unemployment relief, went yesterday to the Nfld. House of Assembly, when they wrecked the building, and brutally treated the Prime Minister, who was saved by Rev. Fr. Pippy. Lady Squires passed out through the crowed, who let her pass, doffing their hats".
A listener-in who heard this broadcast furnished ll the above to the Daily News, with the comment that it was grossly unfair and misleading, in that the reason for the parade to the House was mis-stated. The presentation of resolutions asking for an enquiry into certain charges made against the Prime Minister, was the reason, and not for the purpose of protesting against unsatisfactory unemployment relief.
RIOTOUS ACTION CAUSE MUCH LOSS
Food Supplies Are Apparently Unsought
Several police are injured and one seriously so at the General Hospital, eighteen arrests have been made and Special patrolmen are on the street. All the plate glass windows in the front of the Royal Stores were broken, the entire front of the business premises known as " Cheapside" New Gower Street, was broken out and all the stock in the window in the store owned by M. J. O'Brien was broken and a quantity of oranges stolen, the window in the bakery store of Mr. Ford Basha , New Gower Street, was broken and fancy pastry taken , the plain bread were not touched besides several stores, including nearly all the Chinese laundries on New Gower Street had their glass broken last night by the crowd of older and young men estimated to be not more than two hundreds. It is impossible to give an accurate estimate of the number as from the beginning citizens, urged on by their curiosity, had been following wherever that mob was doing damage and mingling with them made it look larger that it was.
RUMORS OF TROUBLE
The trouble did not come as an entire surprise. Yesterday afternoon there were rumors that last night there would be some trouble if there was no definite new that the loan had been secured. Some of the Stores, banks, etc were notified to be prepared. There was a meeting of the unemployed on the Barrens and after that the parade began. In notice to the greater number of the unemployed it may be stated that by for the large majority of those who had been attending the meetings for several days past, took no hand or part in the proceedings. The more needy men did not believe in acts of violence and last night these were void in their condemnation of what was happening.
SOUGHT ACTING PRIME MINISTER.
The crowd first visited the home of the acting Prime Minister Hon. H. A. Winter who lives at Winter Place. Not finding him at home they returned to the city but on the way out some of them did damage to the new fence recently erected around the Fieldian Athletic Grounds where pickets Etc were broken off.
At the Royal Store the crows stoned the windows from the opposite side of the street and proof that it was not for food the sought was the fact that the first window broken was in the ladies apparel window. The police were on the scene almost immediately and dispersed the crowd from there and another squad was doing duty on the Court House Steps to prevent any attempt at entering there. Thereafter the police were kept busy all night endeavouring to break up the crowds that were congregating.
About midnight a crowd marched down Barter's Hill in mass formation and entered Water Street where they were charged by the police and soon dispersed . All night long and up to a late hour this morning crowds thronged the streets everywhere and made the work of the police very difficult as when the raiders were dispersed they always mingled with the spectators and the police did not know who were who. When the fire alarm was sent in for the fire on Water Street the crowd rushed there and the police had again to charge the crowd. It was at this time that the damage was done to "Cheapside". Up to press hour this morning reports were coming in of damage having been done in various parts of the city and when a survey is possible this morning it will probably be found that damage amounting to many hundred of dollars was done.
The G. W. V. A. were again alive to the situation and as soon as the trouble started made arrangements to have a special patrol on the street. By one o'clock this morning about forty men were out and provision had been made for increasing the number by over one hundred today.
During the night the police were busy and wherever it was possible to make an arrest of anyone found guilty of doing damage it was done. At four this morning eighteen arrests had been made.
The point emphasized by the police is that on this occasion it is not al only young fellows who are doing the damage, but they are joined by some of the older ones and it would appear as if there is some influence behind it.
That the damage was not done by genuinely hungry men is also shown by the fact that at the royal Stores no attempt was made to take food, that the store most damaged on New Gower Street was a dry goods store, that at O'Brien's only fruit was taken and at Basha's only fancy pastries.
ONE POLICEMAN AT HOSPITAL
About ten policemen were injured by stones and sticks. Constable Slade is now at the General Hospital with injuries about the ribs, the exact extent of which is not yet definitely known. Constable Bradbury had injuries to his head but was able to leave the institution after being attended by the doctor.
GOVT. AGAIN SEEKS TO EVADE ENQUIRY
PRIME Minister Attempting to Propose Motion on Petition is Advised by Speaker to Leave The House - Dallying Produces Outbreak Outside Before Motion is Put.
SPEAKER ADJOURNS HOUSE.
As soon as the House opened the delegation from the citizens Committee consisting of J. M. Howell, Chairman, J. H. Devin, Secretary, Rev. W. E. Godfrey and Mr. H. A. Winter K. C. , appeared at the bar of the House with their petition which was handed to the Clerk of the house who read it.
HON. THE PRIME MINISTER moved that the petition be received and referred to a select committee of five members of the House, to be appointed by the Speaker, to ascertain and advise what steps the House should take to carry out the prayer of the petition.
MR. EMERSON rose to a point of order in that the Prime Minister has a principal and should not be permitted to make a motion in this connection; whereupon Mr. Bradley said he would make the motion.
MR. PUDDESTER thought that the Prime Minister should leave the House whilst the matter was being considered.
HON. THE PRIME MINISTER asked the Speaker if he should leave and was told that whilst it was not absolutely necessary he thought it was better that he should do . The Prime Minister then left the Chamber whereupon Hon. Mr. Bradley again moved the above petition seconded by Hon. Mr. Bibdon.
MR. EMERSON held that the appointment of a select committee called for a notice of motion which would mean further delay. When a petition is presented two courses are open ; either to consider the prayer of the petition or if it is a matter of administrative action . It is a petition that asks that the prayer be heard at once.
MR. ALDERDICE was of opinion that an attempt was again, being made to evade the issue. Already there were a few thousand people outside the House of Assembly and unless this matter is disposed of promptly there will be many more in a few days.
MR. BRADLEY did not see how a reasonable solution could be arrived at in any other way than in passing the resolution he had moved.
MR. ALDERDICE again claimed that the attempt was nothing more or less than one to evade the issue.
HON. THE SPEAKER felt tjat in order to dispose of the matter, if the committee was appointed it could sit whilst the House was in session.
MR PUDDESTER asked if he meant by that the House should adjourn whilst the committee was meeting in his opinion the only proper courser to take to adjourn the house until the committee was ready to make its report. This thing has gone far enough now and he thought that unless the House adjourns no more business would be dealt with until the charges made in the House had been proved or disapproved..
MR. EMERSON pointed out that although the matter had been dealt with twice, before there has been no suggestion from the government side of the House as to enquiry and now for the first time the Government was proposing an enquiry and it is simply because once again they are responding to force. An enquiry must be held and he reiterated what Mr. Puddester had said that no more business should be done until an enquiry be held.
MR. PUDDESTER asked if the mover of the motion was prepared to adjourn the House until the matter was disposed of.
HON. THE SPEAKER said that as far as he was concerned he was prepared to do whatever the House thought was right. Anything was satisfactory to him although he could see a technical difficulty.
MR. ALDERDICE asked the House if anyone could imagine a state of affairs where the Prime Minister is openly accused of forgery and robbery and he will not answer the charges or permit an enquiry to be held into them. All kinds of difficulties were being seen now instead of giving exactly what the petition asked for.
MR. SPEAKER again reiterated that he wanted to know what the House desired and whatever it was he be willing to do. He placed himself in the hands of the House.
MR. PUDDESTER pointed out to Mr. Speaker that when he put himself in the hands of the House on former occasions the opposition motion was voted down by the government majority. This was a matter that required a quick decision and the only way was to adjourn the House until the committee is ready to report. Otherwise the first thing was be found is that the Usher of the Black rod will be summoning the members to the council chamber before the committee has time to do anything.
HON. MR. BRADLEY said he was willing to accede to the suggestion of Mr. Puddester and would , after this resolution was passed, moved for an adjournment until Monday Next.
After some further deliberation it was practically agreed to pass the motion for the committee and adjourned the House until Monday. Before the motion could be put, however, an uproar started in the gallery and in the midst of it the Speaker declared the House adjourned until this afternoon at three o'clock.
