The rankings are based on the stand- Basil ing of the players for the season of on, but Lake was out with the Otta Evas, tonight, as well as AVestwick and Leseur, both of whom had offers. Lowry and Dufour were with New- shall remain, here an attention to business." Kling made .the above statement informed that Cincinnati and Pittsbiirg were lioth frying to secure him for next year. The Southerners smiled ill pity at the ignominious display of knowledge. "Glad to see you here! Awfully-wonderfully jolly to come up to swell the crowd. Wo certainly havo n galaxy "of swimming talent here. I'm afraid you fellows won't have much of a don't be discouraged, we are glnd to BOO you chaps here anyway." The Southern representatives of the swimming championship just held in Calgary .again smiled their gratitude and appreciation ot the remarks. That was the greeting the four representatives from Lethbridge re- ceived upon their appearance at the scene of the Alberta swimming cham- pionship. It was handed out to them by Physical Instructor Dawson, ot the Calgary Y. II. C. A. We can well picture the dismay of the Calgary physical director and the other Calgarians, too, when young Howard ConUrite of Lethbridge, in tho 25 yard junior event showed the young bloods of 'Calgary the way to the goal. Then when the tall form of Aleck Oliver of Lethbridge cut iis way through tho.water with speed and agility of an eel, the wise ones of Calgary again opened their mouths' and stood !aghast'and amazed. But Lethbridge stars didn't fade trom 'the flrameiit with these triumphs alone. Again young Conkrite, in the 50 yard shone forth in nil his splendor, when he made his young competitors .stern chasers. Nor was Lethbridge through yet.

The monument is lilt of Vermont marble ami granite nd is one of the most imposing In the emelery. It is 12 feet, 6 inches in, eight and 8 by t feet at the base, j upon a verdict is plainly cost said Judge J. T. Ronald, in the Super- I lor Court today, to a jury that had re- i ported its inability to agree on a ver- diet in a criminal case. !'If-you had arrived at a verdict it would not have been 'worth thc paper it was written on. You are discharged." j This was the sequel to an incident in the jury room last night, after ten men and two women had taken the case early in thc afternoon. I The court bailiff heard them debat- ing until nine o'clock. Then thi voices became subdued. The bailiff put his ear to the keyhole, and he somebody say: "If ycu had played n spade that time you would iave taken the trick; gim- me the cards; it's my deal; hero cut 'em, and cut out the conversation." bailiff walked In. There was a card party sure. He didn't stop to learn what the game was, but dennnd ed tho pack. There was a disposition to finish the came, but the bailiff In- sisted, and the cards were finally stir rendered with tiie suggestion that th. bailiff was an old mutt. When the Jury reported this morn Ing. the bailiff repcrted the Incident. ROLLER AGAIN BEAT FRENCH WRESTLER In the closing pericd rushed through five goals, while Victoria only netted one.

Had he tried, he no doubt could have done s.ome reco'rd-ureaklng in 'that event also. Watch his smoke In the neit swimming championship when he will be properly conditioned and trained. Howard Conkrite is bound to make a name for himself in the swimming world. The local school boy has all the ear-marks of a "comer." It is peculiar to note that neither the News-Tote am or the- Calgary Herald made any reference to Oliver winning the 75 yard event. Also, the reports- from Calgary gave Conkrite as second in one of his events In w'hich he came first. They didn't like it at all in Calgary, this carrying off the medals by outsiders. The Lethbridge contingent are unanimous in declaring that Edmonton got a raw deal in the 100-yard event. "Crockett won over Mundy clear and clean." declares "Scotty" Gordon. "There is an iron piping around the swimming pool extending out some inches. It was clear to everyone that the Edmonton swimmer touched the concrete wall of the pool as" the C gary man grasped the iron railing.
