Lethbridge track is as good as anj in the country and better than most and a gang of men have been work ing on it for some time putting it ii perfect condition. The excellence o the track and cooling shed and pad dock, an added feature this year, art factors that will bring the good hors es hero. The cooling sheds and pnd docks will overcome a defect, whici1 has marred tne races of former years There will be no long waits betwee: the events. The horses for each rac will be waiting in the paddock read} to step on to the track at a moment1! notice. Formerly they were brough to and from the stables, .which, being a long way off, made it difficult to keep them In account and ready for mustering. When a horse leaves stables, he will not go back till he has finished all the events in which he is entered. His place while waiting wil be in the cooling shed, and the pad dock. Last year It took the runners any where from fifteen to forty-five ruin utes to get started after being lined up at the post. There will be none of ;hat this year.

And par WARNER GOT THROW-DOWN ON PROTEST Northern Division Dis gusted With Attitude of Southern Club Tho baseball meeting at tho Y. M C. A. last, night, in which the two dt islons of the Southern Alberta leagu were iu, session to consider tho pro ten entered by Warner against Tu her being awarded tho deciding gam for the championship, 'played at Letl bridge August 7, aJid which Tabe was somewhat of a frost. War ner protested the game on tho decl along of the umpire, and claimed hi was -prejudiced against Warner cause of some betting being done on the result of the game. The northern division of the league were courteou enough to agree to meet the south era officials to probe the matter. I the umpire was prejudiced agnins Warner, and it could be proven, the northern division were just as anxioui to see justice done as tho south. However, at last night's meeting the Warner advocates of anothe gara-e being played insisted upon hav Ing the game thrown 'out on a tech Jilcallty that had nothing to do with umpiring. W. MoD. Tait, the southern division secretary, when the secon point of the protest came up, selzei upon an opppi'tunity to push a tech nfpBllty in regard to Uie size of the bases. The rules call for the ibases to be of certain dimensions. The bas es in the championship game were nol of the regulation size, being consider ably shrunken from rain and use, and upon this point being conceded, Mr Tait moved that the game In question lie thrown out as Illegal, He 'was ruled out of order by President H Nicholson, who occupied the chair The chair considered the point out oi order by virtue of the fact that neith er team was responsible for the size or the condition of the bases, because ,he' game was played on neu'tral ground. It was an unreasonable tech- nicality, which, if sustained, would have been the means of throwing out all the games of the season that have jeen played on those bags. Warner naisted upon their point being upheld, and moved that President Nicholson vacate the ohalr. This the latter re- fused to do, knowing well that the fibuthertv Ibtolng- 'in .he majority, would railroad the pro- ceedings through to their own liking. A stormy took possession of the meeting for a few moments, and k was apparent that the southern di- vision were iiot going to be reason- able, the northern division president the representatives from the south north through reating the question. the Boutheri party 'bundled out of with.; the declara- ion'tbat dent; was "going In calling the meeting at all. They ilaimed it wac .itp to sec re- try-to do this, Tait asked Dr. division sec- retary, to call a 'meeting of the two divisions ..later on to.discuss the -pro- est again. This the secretary agreed o do, but there will be no merttnf railed. The northern -division has dls- for the season. This was done after the southern division delegates rtthdrew, when the secrstsxy was or- dered 'to pay back all deposits belong- ng to the four clubs'comprising the >rthtirn "VVarrier may take their protest to Brewery Cup trustee, G.
