It certainly is going to llnnilv for the players. "The game is new to Seattle, ai last night's play brought the spectators to their feet. The hardest part to..understand is how they play it and live. "Armed with sticks and razor-hlad- cd skates, the players use their wea- pons in a careless man- ner. Houghing in football is mild compared' to .-toughing in hockey. "If you accidentally take a swing at tin puck and hit a man's head, why, it's all right. The man's head didn't have any business there. If, in trying for tbe puck, a man is (lying into tbe side fence, no one worries. The man-should out of the -Way.

TRAVELS OF AN OVERCOAT .Macleoil, Pec. oi steal- ing an. overcoat, value the pro- perty oi Kider Davis of Macleod. C. Sickles, a young man, who has re- sided in for many years, was acquitted by Judge MeNeill in the district court, his honor holding there was not sullicieat evidence to -on- vict. Russell Hamilton, a stranger to tov.'n was also accused oi receiv- ing the coat, but was discharged without being called upon tor his de- fence. The facts of the case are briefly as follows On November 13tb Mr. Davis at- tended a card party in the lied Cross depot, .given in aid oi the funds of that society, and left his coat just inside Hie "door. The entertainment took place in the basement of ths building and on coming upstairs to get his coat Mr. Davis at once miss- ed it and gave information to Chief Lawson. No trace of the coat could be found until November. 30, when Hamilton, who .was travelling with another man's wife, left on tbe train for Lethhridgc. Chief Lawson had suspicion of the man and on hearing he had gone, at once phoned Cliiei Skeiton, giving a description ol the man and asking him. to locate bim. The chief oE police oE Lethbriclge, who is undoubtedly an exceedingly smart man, at once acted on the informa- tion and within ten. minutes Chief Lawson a message from Chief Skeiton that he had arrested the man, who was wearing tbe coat. When asked to explain where he ob- tained the coat Hamilton at once said ho had exchanged it with Sick- les. Sickles was then arrested and in his defence said he bought the coat from a man in the Chinese restaur- ant, who was very hard up at the time, and had not enough money to buy a meal. This explanation was ap- parently satisfactory to the jndRe, who discharged both the accused men without any comment. The' woman who was travelling with Hamiltoii, is quite a young and rather attractive girl, was also charged with being in possession of a' stolen hat, but no evidence was offered against her and she was .dis- charged. Crown Prosecutor M.. Campbell, K.C., appcareii for the crown, and most ably .defended by Joseph, Hicks. W. S. Gray (Macleqd and appeared for'the accused Hamilton.
