Wednesday Night's Retnrn Bout Between Local Favorite and Montanan Due to Fact ThaO Winner Will Meet Chicago Determined to Stay the Route. Never before in Lethbridge sporting circles has so much interest anil en- ehusfasm over any event as Is now being manifested OTCr the Hoss-Moqre clash tor tomorrow night at the Majestic Theatre. That the big- gest crowd of boxing enthusiasts ever assembled. In1'Southern. Alberta will greot the lwo: boys night Is.-now a foregone1 conclusion. Yesterday', .an order for a Build block ot twenty one seats came from Taber, and reservatlona from Barons, Mac- leod, How Island, far north as Vulcan and High River have.been received by the promoters. Moore is working out diligently, and, the reverse to tho majority of ring events, he is putting OQ weight Bllght- ly in place of 'taking the avoirdupois In his last fight Vlth Ross he claims that the loss of weight hurt him to such an extent that he was weaker than ever.'before. His best1 fighting weight is rq the light heavy class, around one hundred and seventy five pounds. For [he last fight with Ross llie articles called tor one hundred arid Billy five pounds. This morning Moore "1 never felt better In my life than I feel right now. 1 am eating nd Bleeping well, and am my old fighting weight. agrJn, which means that, when I step Into tie ring ou Wednesday night, will meet a different man entirely what he met before. Hoss is boy, and I-'ivro found him there with bis right, and shifty fdolwork. Anyway, I know his style now, and while I don't want to appear over-confident, I would- to go.on.record for making the raent that I .will wager I can stay distance wiih Hoss, and unless I miss my guess earn over him. -Tud I'oJey suits me fine ai third man roilLATAM World's Champion Wrestler Falls Victim (o Disease Which Attacked Him in 1916 in the ring."

Gotch, .retired champion heavy- weight wrestler of the world, died at noon today at his home, Humboldt, Iowa, of uraemtc poisoning. He had been in failing health for two years. Gotch was 41 years old. Tlie record books, detailing the events of his life give his age as 39 years, but these are inaccurate. He was born April 1876, on a farm near Humboldt. Ills wife and son were at his bedside when death came. It is said that the famous athlete was conscious almost up to the time 'of his death, despite the rumors that have been In circulation during the last two mouths that he was ir- rational part of tho time. Golch won the undisputed wrestling championship ot the world In 1908 by! defeating George Hackenschmldt, the j A CHALLENGE This is to certify that 1, P. J.

A ,fine preliminary card has been arranged, and, as an added attraction Duke Nelson, a clasay boy who was last season with Klngllng Brothers circus, will a novel acrobatic ex- hibifion. J Word was received last night from Phil Harrison, the Chicago boy, who will meet the winner of the Ross- Moore go at the -Majestic on New Year's eve, Monday, December 31st. Harrison expresses hie willingness to come, and states he will be deo-llght- ed over the opportunity to' take a fall out of either of the two boys. To his credit, has a win over Knockout Brown, over Tony Caponl, over Len Rowlands, and U present with Packey MacFarland.

Driscoll play competition to date indicate that (be interest fa this play-writing contest Is steadily maintained and extending in tho area covered. Competitors from all parts ot the Dominion have signified their intention of sending in'plays and have signed the necessary contract form's. As previously announced, contest May 31st next. Many Inquiries have bean recetred as to subjects, and it Is wlUi the ob- ject of aiding competitors'by sugges- tions that the following notes have been compiled: Further information and details ot conditions of contest, Mr. Driscoll will gladly give by dresatng him to Ills Majesty's Theatre, Montreal, Good comedy is always welcome. But the comedy that Involves an in- ordinate amount of slang, and which depends for, Us points upon exaggera- tion of types, Is steadily falling In pub- lic popularity. Comedy should either deal with developments from somo amusing contretemps, some awkward situation, or some' genuinely humor- ous Incident. Plays of society are'apt to degen- erate Into long-drawn out dialogue, and unless dialogue Is of execeptfonai brilliance, it will not suffice, unaided, to carry any play to success. The public demands action as well as speech. Way's dealing with the underworld, with vice problems, aniwlth the sor- did side of life, unless relieved by sin. cerlty of motive and'dlscrettonof sit- uitton and dialogue, are apt to pall. The public Ii tired of the "drain dra- and there Is a general demand for return to the cleaner, prob- lems of life for consideration on the stage. i Historical plays that do not demand elaborate neftlnj and mounting, and thai avoid the spectacular i a domin- ating element are likely to win a Urge measure ot public They ore, however, by no means emy to construct, and offer pijfalls which do not present themselTes to walk- lac on better beaten tracln. MmpHeltT of plot, simplicity of art- tlag, aad lack of Tartety la are by no meaas faults. Indeed, tor UIOM without ranch experience In plaT-wrlt- Ing, they are qualities to be studied. A simple plot, well, worked out, ay- peali to aa audience nnch more thai a complicated plot Indifferently de- ;reloped. A long cut Is neither necessary nor !ln the great Majority of cases, Is It desirable. Ixmg speeches are things ;to be abided as a general rule. Spec- tacnlar effects often larolve Intricate stage machinery, and can be avoided bjr brief utterance, M a (rule. Too'evldent action h better im- agined off the stage, than acted oa It. Emotional scenes tboakt be brM ulesi coming M the ftaal climax to a {play. Krea tken they are to degenerate Into anti-climaxes, unless the tenseness is maintained steadfast- ly throughout. Conversational slylo Is a thins to be cultivated In dialogue. Nothing kills an otherwise good play more quickly than stilted speech. Avoid dialect unless you. have a thorough knowledge of it. A's a gen- eral rule, plain English Is good enough to put into the mouths of your char- acters. Avoid changes of scene during an act. A play that is worth while act- Ing, needs no change unless the com- plex nature ot tho story demands ono. Th3 prospective competitors [or the Gco. F. Driscoll play competition arc advised to keep in mind three themes which are most likely to meet with public approval: a play containing up- roariously funny dialogue and situa- tions, with good', clean, wholesome comedy; a coutainiug plenty of good comedy dialogue and situations and interspaced, with 'dramatic situa- tions, moral as a Uieme; we site for instance. "Turn to 'the HIght" which had an unprecc- dentedly successful run last season in New York and Chicago, two companies playing at the same time; a good pow- erful mclo-drama, setting forth some overy day happening which has profo- tbly never Into dramatic form. As has been announced previously, a prize of for tho best manuscript submitted Is offered, with a produc- tirfn'guaranteed that the prize winner ia to receive 2ifc% of the gross re- ceipts from such production.

Icebergs of Steel Come and see them pouring the molten mixture-, for the armour plates nickel and chrome-steel-.-- from the furnaces into the moulds. Men with blue goggles are hurrying about and ono of Ihem presents the- visitors with lorgnettes of blue glass. White heat of degrees centigrade blazes from the crevices of those gas- furnace doors. Tho naked eye winces at the glare, but-through the protect- ing "specs" one may gaze 'Tvitb im- punity. The interior of the furnace they have just opened presents an ex- traordinary appearance. The blue glass turns it white. Ukc-au Ice cave in the polar regions It looks, like a little grotto hanging with cool'stalact- "stalactites" are nothing but drlns ot white hot metal. In tho un- thinkable heat ot this furnace blocks of cold, hard metal melt like butter on a hot stove. As we watch on the other side of furnace, an attendant prizes a stopper of clay. With a burst of light and showers of brilliant white sparks, which oddly enough do not burn, outj I rushes a molten torrent, to pour, a fiery Niagara, into the fire-brick lined ladle which awaits Its "recep- tion. An awesome; sight it is to see hardened steel reduced to liquid and tossing right belowe one like a kettle of Jam. And as with the homely jam pot a dross its top.
