April 19.-Boxing returned to Calgary last nigbt before a jammed house at the Columbus Club when Sergt. 1-ou^s (Kid) Scaler staged four fast bouts every one of which pleased Ij^ the fans, and it is confidently expect-' ed that the crowds for the coming fights will be greatly increased.

Ross worked the left to the face in the first round, but Miller came back strong and drove in with hard right and left hooks.

April 18.-Vancouver and New Westminster lacrosse officials made another step forward yesterday in their move to revive the national game on the coast. The Now Westminster players definitely decided to field a team against Van-rwuver, elected Gordon Spring mana-10T atid unanimously agreed to organize a second team to be composed of juniors and intermediate players and Con .Tones, representing Vancou-Ter, will draft a season's schedule. May 22 is the tentative date fixed for the opening. A match between the Junior teams of Vancouver and New -Wettminster will proceed each senior game. The junior teams in the two cities will be equipped by the senior organizations. The rival leaders will also select a third party who 'Rill adjudicate upon all disputes between the clubs. The New Westminster players at the meeting decided to ask Mr. W. K. George of Toronto, Minto Cup trustee, for permission to defend the trophy this season. Con Jones is going east tonight but says the trip has nothing to do with Jacrosse plans. When he returns he will get busy lining up a team. OUTFIELDERS LEAD THE .ATTACK Are in TOMMY GIBBONS ON POINTS. Scranton. Pa., April 19.-Tom Gib-tons, of St. Paul, Minn., last night won on points over Clay Turner, the Indian boxer, the bout going the full ten rounds. the Heavy Artillerymen Baecball Offenaive. New York.- The outfielder is the heavy artilleryman of baseball. He Is the lad who shoulders tho bnmt oE breaking down the fences and defences of the opposition. He is the one who must "i be fleet of foot in the field and on the bags, and he must pick tricky fly balls out of any old kind of a sky. In addition to this all an outfielder has to do is to trap the short drives, pick the long ones off the fences, hit like a pile-driver, run like a tv,-in-six and throw farther and truer than anybody else. Out of some sixty-odd outfielders who earn their sinkers and coffee in the major leagues there are perhaps IB or 20 who are good enough for any man's ball club. But there are among this number, outstanding stars. Every baseball fan, from the .smallest urchin to the oldest bleacherite, agrees that there is only one Ty Cobb, and that when you have said Cobu you have expressed the last word in outfielders. For 12 consecutive seasons Ty Cobb has hit better than .300. He has always been a great fielder and base runner, and he lias always had a strong throwing arm. Rating the outfielders for their value to a ball club means startiiig out with Cobb. Second among the gardeners h Tristram Speaker, and no one will argue long over the selection of Tris as the runnerup. Speaker is the only player in his league who ever ousted Cobb from the batting leadership since Ty budded into a star. Tliird place goes to Joe Jackson, consistently great as a hitter and a good, all-around, seasoned player in every respect Fourth place In the rank, as we see it, goes to Eddie Koush, a new-found Likewise the annual dues are in order. The secretary would like to be ahle to report a par score in this department. New York.-Wounded soldiers as caddies. By "wounded" we mean thoiie who are disabled from either ;'urther fighting or strenuous labor of any sort. It may be that we shall see here, as in the case in Britain and France, more than a few crippled warriors who are minus an arm, or two perhaps, with others who have been badly gassed or suffering from contracted tubercular trouble, all of which conditions obtain across the water. When first the condition arose there, and it was seen that the men thus put hors de combat could not hope to live comfortably on the pension given by tho government, it was suggested to the golfing officials that perhaps the links might afford a haven of rest and comfort to many of these chap.s who needed the fresh air as much as they did the money. Boston, April 19.-Boston took both morning and afternoon holiday games today from New York. Bush pitched his first game tor Boston this morning holding New York,to four hits and won 2 to 1.

The men would be selected and allotted by the board of trade, and an effort would be made by this honorabln body whenever possible to place tlie men at clubs near by the districts where they formerly lived. When this was not found tea.siblt; or possible it should be the duly of the members of the board to find a suitable lodging place within a reawon-a'ule distance oflhe links. When men are discharged tliey are classified a?. excellent, very good or good, and it was the prevailing thought to select particularly those who were in tlio first two divl.sions. national Won New York....... ?

In Britain it is planned also to give a weekly wage to these men in order that they need not feel dependent upon the weather and the amount of play by the members. In order that there might be a sufficient amoimt of money available tor this purpose subscriptions at the various clubs were voted as the best means of insuring a weekly wage and this has been the system developed, v/ith very good results. The wages are to be further supplemented If Sunday work is had, and the general run of details left to the Individual clubs.

We had a baseball manager, and he was wond'roua wise; He boasted that he knew the game, like all the big league guys. Occasion-al-ly, though, he erred; sometimes his foot would slip. Like the day he passed up Derrill Pratt to take a chance on l^ipp. IL We also had a pitcher, the smartest . little lad; At strategy be made Jack Coombs et al, look very bad. But now he rests beneatli the turf- they called the undertaker, The afternoon he passed up Pipp to take a chance at Baker, flf. And then Bill Jones, the catcher; that bird could beat them all At anything connected witii the good old game of hall. Alas, poor Bill; he crossed his signs, and now the angels sing Of the day he ordered Baker pas.sed to take a chance at "Ping." IV. So now we take no chanves in ourj bush league bayfthall town: We lay the ball across the plate, then all hands flatten down. For we know when Pratt or Pipp or Ping or Baker's duo to hit. That passing one to take a chance won't help a LITTLID BIT. (From Our Own Corrpsnonilpnt) Nobletord, April K.-^Dayllght saving on Sunday was at a discount heie. Some had it, some hadn't.
