THe Bankers Were Defeated in Cricket Match Saturday In a cricket contest wihicli was marked -by excellent fowling, the LothbrJdge Cricket, club, defeated the local Bankers' team by a .margin of ten wicketa on Satnrday afternoon at the grounds, Hiricks and McGuickin for the 'Hankers, and Or. -Slmmonfls and P. Pott for the winners. The bridge dub was-dismissed in appearance at ;the bat after running iip score of 7S.' The Bankers in their tiirn were forced out with but a total of 20, due to some fine bowling. They folio-wed on and did much bet- ter In their next attempt, scoring 55 runs (before ibeing The score now stood 75-75, and the Lethbridge club again'took fchelr-turn at the tat, and were not long in making the win- ning: run. Aftor tbe game the cricketers were the guests of the tennis club, where tea was served. Not Much Class To Football Game Saturday Night The soccer fixture ball park last Saturday evening between" teams representing Grassy Lake and Lcih- bridgc, was somewhat of a disap- pointment. A high-wind made good football impossible, while to add to ihe misfortune, the club from-Grassy Lake arrived minus five- players and the aid of local men had to be se- cured for Mullen, Gaud well, Thompson, Halkcrston --an-d Tennant stepped into the vacancies and the game proceeded. It was the good fortune of to flush under none more responsive to the mood 'of the moment. See him under a telling at- tack from the front Opposition b-ench He fidgets, frowns, shrugs his shoulders. "This shrug" of the, shoulder indi- cates the Prime Minister's .embar- rassment. H is not exactly a shrug, It is something of a, writhe and thing of a wriggle. It Is tbe action ot a.-man rid himself of an oppressing burden, "Whenever, he has to answer a. par- ticularly awkward question, Mr. As- quith's shoulders writhe, shrug and wriggle, and the action announces to all the House that the Premier is in difficulties. 'Mr. Bonar Law's temperament is revealed, not by his but -by his hands. During a speech they are never still. He begins by placing: them palm down on his dispatch Tciox. He folds them only to replace them on'the box. The next moment he IB clutching the lapels of his coat, wherb his hands are to make swift, sudden dives into his pockets, where he carries quotations from the speech- es of his opponents. "Mr. Bonar Law's mood is never re- flected hi his face. That always re- mnins as composed ami non-committal as the expression of an expert, poker player, but when he is possessed by strong emotion, Mr. Bonar Law's hands seem to contain the nerves .of his entire system. Lloyd George Erratic "Perhaps itho most fascinating study in the House is .Mr. .Lloyd George. He is like one of his. loved mountain erratic, impatient; sometimes sparkling to sunshine, sometimes sullen in .sha- dow. He has the smile of a child and the pugnacity of a prize fighter. When attacked, be thrusts his head forward to meet the onslaught. His eyes harden and his mouth tightens. He watches every .move of his opponents. There Is something curiously catlike in his tension, in his swift the table, In the eagnernesB of hio pounce. He lias not one mannerism, he has a hundred. But one can .listen long to Jlr. Lloyd George without be- ing conscious oi; the circle of irritat- ing phrases, of which the Chancellor of 'the Exchequer is a victim. Hts phrases are well 'worn, and his con- stant and persistent use of words jar on tho ears and tries the nerves like irritating noises on a sleepless night. Churchill Nervous Winston Churchill is 'the mbst nervous man on the Treasury bench j the most nervous in the! House of Commons. A man of tried courage and undoubted resource, he nevertheless possesses the nervous temperament of the .highly imagina- tive. He has a trick of covering bis mouth .with-his hand when disturbed, and.during the ordeal of an import- ant speech, he frequently smiles in- voluntarily. "His nervousness does not affeci his ability, 'but it is always present and never more so 'than when be as- sumes complete confidences. ''Austen Chamberlain is not trou- bled with nervousness. His cool, con- fident manner is mostly disconcerting to an opponent. Nothing disturbs him, nothing can put him out of his He Is as as -an iceberg, and about as relentless. He acts up- on Mr. Lloyd George like a cold douche. He has few gestures. He ia, deliberate, logical and imperturb- able. When the House is glowing with1 excitement, Austen Chamberlain surveys it critically through his mono ,cle. Hardest "McKenna should have the hardest knuckles in the House. He rarely makes a speech without banging an accompaniment on his dispatch box. While ofher ministers- are content to mark important passages -with em- phatic bangs. Also-when'-he is agi- stammers. Mr. Blrrell Is searching for the right word the snaps his fingers, and when Mr. Ramsey-AFacDonald is Impatient he seems to be playing very difficult passages from Beethoven with the fingers of one hand.'"

WANTS TO LEASE BED OF LAKE Ottawa, Aug. is given in this week's Canada Gazette of the ap- plication of W. M. Ellis, of Vancouver, Cor p. lease of the Submerged bed of Cheam on ihe railway belt, Bri- tish Columbia, for the purpose of pumping or dredging from the lake a deposit of disintegrated lime 10 be used for fertilizing purposes. The Department of Agriculture for British Columbia recommends that :he leiise be granted, as there IB a ;reat need for crushed lime rock for 'ertilizing.

GENERATION OF THE BRIT- ISH NAVY London, Aug. new scheme elaborated by Winston Churchill, First Lord of the 'Admiralty, for a regeneration of the navy, by. the fa- cilitation of promotion of warrant of- ficers and men to commission rank which was at first bailed with uni- versal approbation and joy is now beginning .to find critics. The origin- al announcement certainly presented u glowing picture, according to svhicli a boy of exceptional character, ability and able to. rise not merely to .the rank of lieutenant but to. the-highest command. Nothing better .could be asked, but here enters .the first handicap in the question'.of pay. A-lieutenant'of less than eight'.'years' standing receives only 10 shillings a day, which is very little.for a.commissionc-d officer, even when unmarried, and it. is impossible for a married man. The naval officers' have to .''depend principally oh private incomes, and from the lower deck.arc not likely to have pri- vate resources 'or they would never have enlisted. A second objection is well put 'by 0. N. Barnes, ;a Labor M. P.- from Glasgow. "Even when seamen have attained commissioned he says, "they find difficulties in, the ward room. .Some time ago 2B com- missions were'.'.givcn to artificers and engineers iit but not a sin- gle one of these .officers has been em- ployed afloat for the single reason that they cannot get on with the other officers of the ward ,room. I will not say'whose fault it is, but it is true that these .officers' are employ- ed on shore duties, such as the in- spection and coast guard servicci.

No Loss of Time from Work SENT ON SIXTY DAYS OTTAWA GETS RID OF TYPHOID AND THINKS PARLIAMENT WILL 'NOW MEET THERE FOR CERTAIN Ottawa, Aug. that- the typhoid epidemic is practically over, it is unlikely that any more will be heard, of the movement to have par- liament adjourn and meet in some (.While it was very doubt- ful whether the government would have -listened seriously to such a move, even if it had been considered necessary by any members of parlia- inent'is'now considered unnecessary. Clarence Jameson, Conserva- tive member ior Digby, N. S., -who was one or those interested in pro- moting the round robin, says that the movement to have parliament meet .elsewhere, is still on toot, but has not yet been reduced to writing. Last.-week members of parliament Prom the Maritime Provinces and the Pacific coast were quite serious re- garding the movement, but it is pre- sumed that their mood will change with the end oi the typhoid epidemic. It has been stated that'it would bo necessary to amend the British North America Act in order to have parliament adjourn irom OUawa. This, however, is not so there is nothing in the act to compel parlia- ment' to sit in -Ottawa. Section six- teen merely enacts that Ottawa shall he the capital unless the sovereign decrees otherwise. All that would be necessary would be an ordeivin-couu- cil.
