A largo num- ber of the well-wishers drore up Jrom tho two towns mentioned to see their champions wins, and Lhey were not disappointed. Blalrmore alio sent a goodly contingent of spectators, and the seats about the courts were liroriged with lookers-on. During the afternoon the lady mem- bers of the Coleman club, assisted by friends, served a dainty luncheon. Play 'began at 3.30 sharp, and It was after' seven o'clock 'before the last came 'was finished sad the racquets tossed aelde. Col em an players won the majority of the men's and the mixed Cornwall, winners of tho National Lacrosse Union c-lmmploirsblp, will b> the flrst eastern learn to go west tills season after tbe Mlnto cup.

New Westminster will be tbo club that Cornwall will attempt to wrest the trophy from. Although the coast league schedule has not boeu completed Ih9 monbellles cannot be ousted from Brat place. They could loso ovory same and Btill be champions. Toronto looks like a- winner in the Dominion Lacrosso Union and they, too. will be aloug with a challenge for the Mlnto Cup shortly, If they keep in the lead. The cup trustees may ask for the two eastern champions to play off for tbe privilege ot coming west for the cup. However, Bato receipts will bo n big factor In this question.

The season Is 'becoming well-advanced nnd If the Washingtons or Athletics expect to overtake the Speed Boys they will have to tmrj-y. At this stage of tbe game.
