Although late in j starting, a good game was put up. full j of interesting features. The S. O. E. i had nearly their full team out, while tho Overseas line-up included several new men. After the first five min- utes the Englishmen got together in good style, and from a fine centre, ny Clayton, Capt. Ilolberton planked a fino shot, which Collier failed to save, tfntl the Sons were one up. i Shortly after, the Sunsiignln showed j their form, and an easy goal was j scored by A. Gurr. The Overseas woke tin to the fact it was time j they were taking a hand in the scoring, and on a rush Mullen put in shot which hit the post, and un a i scrim the ball was placed between, j but the whistle tad gone for off-side.

Contracts recorded show Moose Jaw Calgary and Edmonton clubs within the limit. Have sent afffciavitr to all of them today requesting same to be executed without J Eckstorm. This presents a very amusing situa- tion. It also shows that things Have been a little slack in .the running of the league. It is a certainty- that all the three western clubs named- are over the salray limit and also carry ng more players than the league al- lows. For three cubs', pacing their salary limit of each a month, .would be a mild estimate.
