CRICKET AT TORONTO GtmjMtition for Robertion Trophy U SCOTT CUP GAME TONIGHT, BASEBALL AND AQUATICS TOMORROW NIGHT, AUTO RACES THURSDAY There is something doing iu the sporting circles of this fair city Just at present. Tonight at the Athletic park the first game of the Scott Chal- lenge Trophy will be played. Tomorrow night AVaruor and Taber will come together in the final game to establish the supremacy of one or the other in amateur baseball of Southern Alberta and while tae game is in progress the Lethbridge Aquatic association will be entertaining at Henderson Part lake. Thursday afternoon at the fair grounds Barney Oldfield and his company of auto speed merchants will give a demonstra- tion of the art of playing with death. Football Game at 6.45 me football game tonight between the Overseas and St. Cyprians, which commences at 6.45 gives promise of being well contested. The Overseas are the favorites in predicting the outcome, hut that doesn't shako, the Saints' confidence. They trimmed the 'Seas last week and although.the latter had somewhat of a scrub up, the outcome of last'week's match has some bearing on the result of the game tonight The usual admission of 25c will be charged and a good crowd is expected to be in attendance. iumper Crowd for Ball Game The interest being taken in the championship game at the Athletic park tomorrow evening between the Taber and Warner teams all over the south, speaks well for the size of the crowd that be. at the game. There will undoubtedly be a train-load from Taber to see their nine do battle, and "Warner too, will be sure to have a. large following from their home town as Weil as other parts of the south country. Lethbridge is also expected to contribute largely to the attendance rod the grand is expected to be tested to its fullest capacity. Aquatic Sporti at the Lake The ball game tomorrow evening will Have a strong counter attraction in the aquatic snorts at the lake, hut Lethbridge .has enough sport patrons to ensure a fair division of pleasure seekers and neither attrac- tion will be wanting in patronage. A good program of sports is promised at the lake by Commodore Mclnenly of the local aquatic association and he promises that they will be no hitches to mar the program as on the former occasion. Everything is well organized now and the canoe and swimming races and other exhibitions will be worth see and the admission to sights is nil. Auto Racss at 4 O'clock The exhibition of auto speeding at the fair grounds Thursday should bring out even a larger crowd than that which attended the aviation exhibition here last year and that was some crowd. Aviation doesn't vie with auto r-peeding as a thrill-producer and there is nothing that allures the crowd like excitement In Barney OlaBeld, Lou Heima-n and "Wild Bill" Fritch the public will have an opportunity of witnessing an exhibition that they have only had the pleasure of seeing heretofore in the moving picture shows. The first event on tae program will be run off at 4 o'clock, which is a popular time to give most people a chance to be there., At Roglua Saturday Barney Oldfield was successful In breaking tbe Gnu udlau record for. nutos for a mile on a half-nillo track, boating the record made by Lou Disbrow at Toronto recently by a trillo over four seconds, if tho despatch be- true. Now OldfleM has come across" with statements re- peatedly, that he never niads a record that he could not better, and it be- comes us to. come buck with the re- mark that it is up to him to clip a second or two off the half-mile record when lio performs here Thursday af- ternoon, if the conditions warrant it, and there is only one possible hind- rance that is likely to thwart his efforts, and that is bad weather. Orvillo Hurst, Barney Qldfleld's man- ager, lias vouched for the track here and even goes to say that It is the best in the west, and he has seen the I Regiua track and all the others in. the 'big cities. Therefore, with good weather Conditions there is no reason why the speed king or some of his noted companions should not bring down the record, in the mile, or sdine of the other distances. Although Toronto papers are firm in the belief that Disbrow's time atj the Queen City was record breaking time, Oldiield disputes this. He claims to have done better time than Disbrow's 'mark on repeated occasions but has never kept any record of his performances; the American Auior mobile Association doesn't recognize half-mile tracks, and then there are several kinds of 3ialf-rnile dirt banked and cinder hanked and unbanked.

The weather wag stormy and consequently several of the crack yachts did not start, notably the White Heather in the twenty-three metre clau, in which the Kaiser's Meteor was opposed by another German racer Gernninia aid SHr Thomas Both German yachts conceded the Shamrock 7 minutes, 40 seconds start The Meteor abandoned the race when her gaff was carried away. The 'falling block seriously injured one of the crew. The yacht in trying to make the starting point, got into shallow water at low tide. The mainsails fluttered in the stiff breeze and strained the masts, but the crew promptly hauled the sails down and soon brought the Meteor safely ashore. The Shamrock gave up before the first round and the Germania finished alone. THE PASS FOOTBALL LEAGUE CHANGES ITS RULES may be termed an unbanked course, similar to the .Regina and Toronto tracks.

This makes a radical change In the rulee of the league, as issued at the beginning of the present sea- son, as one of the original rules par- DEWAR'S "SPECIAL IJOIIEUR" tieularly stated that all points have to be played for. But the committee in setting aside the original ruling de- cided that the resolution as passed and carried would have a more bene- ficial effect in making the competing teams more, punctual and not post- pone their games on.the smallest pre- tests. The only exception allowed by tho resolution is in cases of bad weather or in other cases 'when it is agreed between the two competing teams before the scheduled date of the game. It was eipectcd that the resigna- tion of Lille from the league would be handed in at thin meeting as there is no possible chance of the Lille team getting together again, but to the surprise of all present the Lille man was conspicuous ,by hig'absence. After appointing Messrs. Copeiand, Graham and Cruikqhank as referees for the balance of the games to be played this season, .the meeting was adjourned until Friday, August Oth. Form Rifle Club It has been proposed to form a rifle club in Hillcreat this fall and a com- munication has teen sent to the illn- Ister of -Militia at .Ottawa asking for Information regarding tbe grant made by the government in cases of thlg kind of rifles, ammunition, etc. About twenty young men have signi- fied their Intention of Joining the proposed club provided the expenses It.
