Although s :arge percentage of the youns nien of the country were overseas in uniform, thoroughbred racing was more popular than ever. The largest crowd in the history of racing in Australia saw the recent nuning of the Melbourne Cup, which' Is the biggest event of its kind in the country. It Js estimated that over 90,-000 persons were in the enclosure on the'day of the race. Of these *2,000, paid admis�]pn,and the others were ad; mitted trfee pi pharife. Ra'cing in {Australia pays~a Wg dividend to the government.

Cincinnati will not have to loolivery far tor a manager now that Pat Moran is free. The Cincinnati clj^ last night w-lthdrew its ?5000 offer-to the Red Sox for the release of Dick Hob-litzel, who was spoken of as a possible successor ,,to Christy Mat'ie^v-son. There, is no one In sight with better Qualifications to head the Reds than Fitchburg Pat. The Newark Internationals will hare to come to some agreement with the major league over the use of the Harrison hall park or secure new grounds. Wiedenmayer's park no longer will hi avaUable. A dye concern has purchased several plots of the' AViedenmayer ^ park holdings. While not- sold in its entirety. 'Wiedenmayer's park Is killed as tar as baseball use ir concerned. Jimmy Hiclanan of the Dodgers and "Casey" Stengel of the Pirates have been, discharged from the navy and now are in civilian attire. Stengel had a short confab with Barney Dreyfuss. There is some doubt about Hickman returning to taseball this season, as he has a good position ^vlth a steamship company and may not be able to Sevote any time' to baseball. Con >I''Vey, veteran ringster, and trainer^ who was In Jim Corbett'a corner in all his famous battles, was an iaterested spectator at the ringside in Philly the day of the Jack Dempsey-BiUy MIske bout and saw Reams' tighter in action tor the first time. "He Is the first heavyweight," said McVey. "who looks like the old bunch. 1 -would call him a slightly smaller edition of Jim Jeffries. He is one of the best two-handed punchers I have ever seen. And another thing in his favor 48 the fact that he is always on top of his rival. He can whip iliske any time and Miske knows it. Dempsey is still a little clumsy on his feet, but he will get over this. Jack has the call 6u all the heavyweights of today and I firmly believe that he can stop Willard inside of 20 rounds." Joe Jfandot, who ^yas once making a'bid for the lightweight title some foift- or five years back, has lost all pugiliBtic form, according to eastern writers. In his recent loround bout in New Orleans he was outpointed by the third-rate Pat Moore. Reports of the battle describe Mandot as slow, wild and ineffective as to hitting. It was Leaches Cross who started Man-dot down the decline of defeat. Cross stopping Joe In the lOth round. Bud Anderson then knocked Mandot out in the 12th, and in 1915 Benny Leonard knocked out the Crescent City boy In the seventh. Mandot won a 20-round verdict over Joe Rivers. CAR OWNERS!

[Editor, X^lhbrldge Herald: Sir.-Found a piece in your paper dated Barons, the 22nd October. It says that Olaf Follestad of Barons lost a little girl on that day from the 'flu. But I don't believe there was much 'flu about fhat case. The girl had always been weak and delicate ever since she was born, and through the ten years we were allowed to have her with us we more than once expected her to drop off suddenly without much warning. Although she had for the three last years Improved wonderfully, and we were in hopes that .slie would outgrow her weakness. But in the spring about Eastur time she was taken down with the measles, which seemed to leave her again in a weak condition, arid a short time after while in school one day she fainted and since then she didn't seem to get back to the strength she had liRined through the last years, but complained about being tired and that her heart worked so funny once ! in a while, and when taken sick the J last time all she complained about was her tliroHt and ;her heart. Dr. :\Ic;Mil!an, of Claresliolm, thought it was diphtheria, but also that her weak heart was the cause of her sudden death, and I am sure his statement Is right. The next that her-fkther was refused transportation on the railway when he tried to take her to Lethbridge on Monday, the day before she died, must be aTmlsiinderstand-ing as he never tried to take her on the railway that day nor at any other time. But Tuesday morning early he went to Barons to try to get some one to lake us to Lethbridge in a car, and even if he liad got someone to take US she would have died on the road. MliS. O. l!t)LLESTAD.

McKenha Defeated Reginald McKenna former chancellor of the .elchequer and a staunch supporter of F,ormer Premier Asqulth, was defeated in the Pontypool division of Monmouthshire, Wales, by Thomas Griffiths, Laborite.

Of these, 122 already have been returned, either unopposed or for the universities wheye conditions enable an Immediate declaration of the results. Those returned comprise 51 Coalition Unionists; 31 CdaJition Liberals, 12 Labor-itcs, one Independent, one Irish Nationalist and 26 Sinn Feiners. The general IndiiTerence over the election justifies the expex;tatlon Of small polls and with the exception of the professional politicians nobody is excited over the results. Some newspapers confidently predict a big victory for the Coalition government under the leadership of Premier Lloyd-Gebrge. This is based mainly on some Indicaticpns and does not take into account the votes of soldiers and sailors abroad of whose attitude toward the various parties little Is known. According to some reports the .soldiers and sailors were mostly indifferent to the election and did not trouble to vote. Other reports differ and the estimates of the number of soldiers and sailors who voted are from 30 to 70 per cent, of the whole. The Laborltes apparently ar^ bank- Expresses Views to Delegatloi< Headed By Viscount Grey, , Representing Organization V � LONDON, Dec. 38.-President WiV' son ,at the American embaBBy today received a delegation from the league of nations' union.
