The final score was 7-6 in favor of Burdett. In the seventh innings the score was a tic and in the play-off Grassy Lake lost.

Los Angeles, Cal., April 2!).-Frank Conley, bantam weight champion, won a newspaper decision over Dan Webster in a ten round fight before the Pacific Club here last nlg'ht. Webster was knocked down twice in tlie fourth round, and saved bM the bell. Jack Johnson sparred two short rounds with Georse Cotton and Nark Cutler as a preliminary. Johnson dis played great cleverness and showed his strength by placing the palms of his glove against Cutler's jaw and lifting him half way across the ring. Jolmson made a speech lauding Jeffries, and promising to get Into perfect condition for tlie figlit on July 1th. Franlf Lohr is keen on teaching his Maroons that inside stuff. Judging from the record they made away from home last year. It is outside bail they need to learn.-Kegina Leader. 4* 4* *1* Brandon citizens and business men came to the assistance of tlie Brandon baseball club with subscriptions for stock, going a long way towards wiping out the deficits for the last two years. In a general canvas of this section not one refused to buy stock, and there is a general indication that the people appreciate the fact that the ball team has publicity and is benefitted by the people being drawn from outside points by the pastime. Advice from Manager -Morrow says he has among the pitchers and outfielders a bunch of hitters that will be a revelation to patrons in Class C ball. 4. 4. 4. After much delay the schedule of the Western Canada Baseball League has arrived. It ought to be fairly satisfactory to tlie fans, inasmuch, as it gives Edmonton the greatest number of home games on the circuit, there being 5!t. Winnipeg ties with Brandon for second place witli 5S. and Calgary is third with 55. On the whole, the seliedule is better arranged than last year uud longer. The series are shorter and more freQuent, and tlip mileage does not seem to have boon incieaspd. The cities wiiicli .showed the largest at-I tendance last year have been given I the gi'eatest number of games. Al-I iaongh Kdmonton did not have the largest gate in the league last year it cortaiuly had the largest for the number of games won.-Kdmonton Journ;il. The Kegina Spectator says: Some difficulty has arisen with regard to the question of grounds to be used by the local bail club. It seems that there Is more than a possibility that tlie present grounds may be so far interfered witli by the new C. P. K. freight sheds as to render tliem useless for bail purposes. This would necessitate the utilization of Dominion Park, which has already been secured for certain nights in the week by the football association. This would undoubtedly cause some re-adjustment 01 dates should a cliange of grounds be necessary, but no difficulty should be encountered in this regard. 4, 4, 4, Tlie Leth bridge team was billed to play in -Macleod yesterday with the semi-pros of that place, but rain put the kibosh on it all.

GARRrSMESSAGE Brought Johnny Kling to Hit Sense* in a Hurry, JACK JOHNSON AN UNDESIRABLE HOTEL GUEST Los .Xngeles, Cal., April 2'.).-Jack Johnson, [he negro pugilist, was refused accommodation in Los Angeles hotels on arriving hei-e. He first went to one of the leading hotels with a considerable party of attendants. He entered the lobby, but a tew moments later the party de-pai-lo(l and tried another hotel. The sanip e.Kciise was offered for not receiving the black, champion. .Ml rooms occuiiied. .\s Johnson refused to try to find lodgings at cliea;ier hotels, arrangements were made for Ills entertainment last niglit at the home of the negro editor. Cleveland, Ohio, April 26.-"That's ail there Is to the matter," said Garry Herrmann tonight, referring to the message he dispatched to-day to Johnny iKling, Chicago Cubs catcher, ordering him in the name of Messrs. Herrmann and Lynch to report to Clii-coga by next Monday or stand suspended till the season of ISlll. The Cincinnati member of the iMational Commission declined to go into the matter deeper than the face value of the message. ""fhe message speaks for itself," he said. "It means just what it says-you can see as well as 1 can explain." The message reads: "John G. Kling, Kansas City: Unless you report to Cnicago next Monday our finding on your application for re-instatement will be suspended for one year." It was signed by Garry Herrmann, Chairman National Commission, and 'I'. J. Lynch, president National league. The message was drawn out, and this Herrmann concedes by the announced intention of Kling to employ next week on the vaiidevile stage, to earn |700 wherewith to pay his fine. President Lynch protested to Herrrmann against permitting Kliiig to make a farce of organized ball, and its ruling body's orders by such a foray into the vaudeville treasury.

As stated in Saturday's Capital, the piovlnclal meet of 1910 of the Alberta Amateur Athletic Association goes to Lethorldge. The vote Of the governors was very close, standing four to three: ,^ ' Hon. W. A. Buchanan, lcthbridge; Dr. G. A. Stanley, High River; M. S. McCarthy, Calgary; W. A. Moore, Red Deer, were the governors Who voted for Lethbrldge; and Hon. C. W. Cross, Kdmonton; J. W. Ward, Eklmonton, and F. A. Walker, Fort Saskatchewan, were with Edniuuton. As predicted by us a couple of weeks ago, the governors lined up iNorth against South, but we were wrong In our dope about W. A. Moore, of Red Deer. We had him lined up with the E/dmonton supporters, but he was found wanting in his allegiance to the north. We still maintain that Edmonton should have been the logical choice for 1910, but now that the meet has been awarded to iLetbbrldge, the only thing left for Edmonton athletes to do is to send down a strong team and sweep all the prizes from the board, as was done in Calgary last year. The only thing that rllea us Is that the secretary of the association should use what little influence he does possess in the Interests of Lethbrldge. Our idea of a secretary Is a man who follows out the orders of the board of governors, not one who attempts to dictate what shall and shall not be done. There is one thing certain, that Is, Kdmonton will he well represented at Lethbrldge, and it is our one best bet that they make the Calgary athletes take second place.
