That is the date of the big Trades and Labor council excursion to Fernie, when Lethbridge labor men will combine with the Pass camps in the biggest Labor Day celebration in years. It is expected that 1,500 at least will go from here on the special train. A big sports program will be the afternoon feature. In the evening will be the Ross bout and a dance.. Just who Ross' opponent will be is not known yet but it would not be surprising if "Durable Ike" Cohen of Great Falls, were to make another attempt to show the Alberta favorite the way to handle his mitts.

Two Teams Want To Stage a Game on Local Diamond After Calgary Tourney Though the curtain has been rung down on baseball by the local club, there Is a possibility that anothor game or two may be played on Eck-Htorm park diamond before the season is over. M. P. Butler, manager of tho Vulcan team, intimated to the Herald that Vulcan and Champion would like to stage an exhibition game or series here aftor tho Calgary tourney and before tho breaking up for tho season. These teams are playing almost as fast ball as the Northwestern league did this season and would give local fans a pleasant surprise. The curtain was rung down on the lmsoball season in Lethbridge on Saturday evening so far as the locals are concerned. Coaldale essayed to plaster one on the locals as a season finisher, hut tho best they could do was to drag out a fi-G tie. The game went the whole nine innings and the sprinkling of fans had the worth of their money. Joe Gillis and Bill Potter were the opposing slabsters, and each was touched for nine safeties. Lethbridge had the game won in the eighth when everyone expected Umps to call it. But he chased tho home-brews out on the lot for the last frame, and two singles which went for'.doublcs in the dark let in a run, tying the score. Lethbridge started out to win air.iex-ing two in the first on a single, an error in centre and a passed ball. Coal-dale got it back on a walk and a throw through second to centre field. Coaldale added two more in the third on three singles, and' a dropped throw by Bond. McKillop made a perfect throw to the plate to cut down Green, but Bond was too anxious. Lethbridge came right back with two in the third putting them one up. Schweitzer got a life on McCann's wild peg over first. Dimsworth doubled, sending Schweitzer home. C. Gillis tore off a triple, sending in Dimsworth, but McKillop, last man up, whiffed. Coaldale made it two more in the fourth. Lund and Potter singled, and C. Green leaned against one for three sacks. It was one of the longest hits of the season in Eckstorm park. Two runs. The locals came back and tied the score in their half of the stanza. V. Gillis was hit by the pitcher, worked his way around to third on a couple of infieyl outs and came home on Schweitzer's single. Coaldale drew blanks for tho next four innings, while Lethbridge put themselves one up in the 7th. L. Dimsworth singled. Went to second on a dropped fly to centre, stole third and scored on Walsh's timely bingle. Then came tho ninth. Lethbridge got two on, after Coaldale had tied the score, but the last three men were easy outs. Tho box score: Coaldale- AE R II PO A B G.
