A. football grime was played .between Lethbridge 7and Piucher Creek players the evening, and although the home players, some of whom did not have a practice for two years, put up a pretty good game, they were easily outclassed by visiting them two brethren, .who defeated goals to none, One goal was scored' in' .each half. The first went to Gurr, who shot one that proved too much for the Pincher man between the nets. The next -was the result of a scrimmage i near the goal, Parker doinjr the (feed.

CORINTHIANS WON'T BE HERE Famous English Football Eleven Change Their.Plans and Incidently Forego Visiting Lethbridge The Lethbridge Rovers and Jlac- leod meet on Wednesday evening, at the ball grounds. Game commencing at Wm. Raisbeck, of Grassy Lake will referee. An effort is being made to arrange the "Bennett Shield game, lietw n Lethbridge and Calgary Caledonians for Friday the 25th, failing this, Leth- bridge Caledonians ami Sons of Eng- land .will meet in the semi-final ,pf tile "Wrlg'llt Charity Cup" on that date. Owing to the game in Calgary with the Corinthians on the 26th, it is pro- bable the 'Bennett Shield' ttes will Be postponed tor another woek and the Callies and Sons will provide a game for the 25th. The English'' Corinthian football eleven will not be seen in action Lethbridge. The famous English team have changed their nland anil in- stead of returning by the Crow's line as first proposed, they will come back from the coast by the main line {New' Westminster Stopped Their Rivals in Hot Clash vhich apparently seems sufficient rea- son for them .passing up and killing the fond hopes of The '.ov- ers of football here who had. been !ooU- eleven in action.

Football enthusiasts will derive con- solation from the fact that they see ihe Corinthians as they in Cal- gary on tile 26th. The Calgary Board of Trade are giv- ing the Corinthian team their utmost attention, as they recognize the bene- fits to be derived therefrom in the way of publicity. A big crowd of enthusiasts is expected 10 make the journey to Calgary, and a great game should be seen. Aug. the most sensational lacrosse ;K'aine played on the coast, fi to 5, the winning goal being scored three seconds before time. Players were knocked out'frequently and the time .that the teaiss were on the field ex- tended over three hours. It was the beet game play el! here this seaeon, 'both twelves playing tet- ter lacrosse than ever before. With the score standing four each about the end of the fast quarter. Newsy La- loutie. broke through Westminster's defence and put the ball in the net, biit' the point was disallowed. The Westminster goal umpire made to put lip bis hand when the ball hit the in- Bid c of the net but when it 'bounced out again he dropped it down just ax quickly, .and while Vancouver players were claiming the coal West- minster rushed down and 'scored, but the referee'-apparently saw Lalonde'i shot hit. the net and h> whittle before WestmlnBter scored. A near riot occurred when the Van- couver goal was disallowed aa thous- ands of fana the shot hit toe net. It was, in .the. view of Vancouver, case of robbery. The teams played, fast lacrosie .all through the game. Vancouver having the better of the game- after the Oral quarter. Westminster tank the lead early in the game, getting two goals to Vancouver's one in the first; but the teams were even lip, three each, at half time. Vancouver took the lead' for the first time ill the third but tho Rdyals equalized soon afterward. The teams battled fiercely for twelve minutes in the last quartar befor-a Cliff Spring put -Westminster'ahead, and it looked all off with Vancouver. Fitzgerald took the from the face off "and ran past Westminster's defence and brought the of Vancouver supporters to their feet, cheering. goal came immediately after and it would have practicallx ciuched the cup for Vancouver. Cllfi' Spring dashed in just befor-2 time and gave Westminster another chance to hold the cup. Johnny Howard was dropped by Westminster for breaking training rules but he was stripped ready to take Glfford's place wh-en Gifford was carried off the field. Vancouver still lea-ds ttie league, five to four, and the final game will be plnyed in Nrew'Westminster Labor Day. The attendance was CON JONES A SORE LOSER Vancouver, Aug. Mlnto Clip contest is still the chief topic In sporting circles. The rcfercelng in Saturday's match was the subject of much adverse comment In Vancouver, says the Newa-Advertts- er's sporting editor. The. executive of the Vancouver'Lacrosse Club is dlsEntlsfled to sar Hie least and unless an eiiual line IB drawn between it and the New Westminster Club in the matter of appointing officials for lames, it Is probable that no-mulch will played next Labor Day at New Westminster. Con Jonoi, of the Vancouver Lacrosse Club, Issued the following statement: "I consider the gsme was handed to Westminster by the referee and goal umpire and that there will be no game on September 4t.h unless Vancouver bus some in the selection of the referee for Miat day, of which they have not so. far this year." In tho opinion of non-partisan lacrosse enthusiasts, however, New Weatmlnater won on merit, superior generalship and home play. Van- undoubtedly had more opportunity to score but failed through faulty team-work." Trouble in Camp and Caps Lost Shamrocks administered another defeat to the Capitals Saturday by. a score of 10. to S. There was some sort of a mutiny in the Capitals' ranks during the week and though Coach Smith managed to smooth matters over or two, of those who have been playing regular were among the absentees when the red shirts trotted out. Louie Foley, their goal keeper did not report and Alex Cnrrie was also missing. The Capitals thus placed Ashfield in the nets and switched their field around to make room for Gorman.
