Uoleraan and Lelhbridge both have a chance to tie it up with 'Blairmore. for a chance to fight it off in a series of home and home games to decide the final renting place of the cup In this league. Lethbridge had two games to play: the Coleman protest on Blainuore ice next Friday night and the Ptochor game here Tuesday night.

Willard strongly supported by Blairmore, came to tile meeting to put up a big fight for the gains which had been protested liy Lethhridge. They presented a strong case, but the older members of tho league evideut- ir felt that Coleman, in refusing to finish two sames this season, should he disciplined and tlio order for a re- play of the game on neutral ico was the result. The Blairmore Protest, I The Blairmore representative. T-I. Chappell, also made a strong pro test against the action of the league president in disallowing the Blair- j more protest against the playing of j Grant by Lethbridge in last Wednes- i day night's game. In this he was snp- ported by the Coleman delegate, but again the older members of the lea- j yue, after hearing the president's statement of the case, supported by a letter from Judgo Jackson, A. A. U. i governor, ruled that the action of the president, bo sustained. A warnin was then issued by the president that hereafter, all protests against the de- i cision of referees will be thrown ont as fast as thoy are received. The ent method of supplying referees for j Barnes is not at all satisfactory, the i president said, but it wag the best i that could hn done, considering the league's and for the sake of the spurt and the protection of the public which pays Us money to see hockey games, th'; referees, as the league's representative on tiie ice at nil he Kupportofi in tlieir rulings.

Dear Sir: With reference to the article published by the Lethbridge Her. aid on this date, stating the decis- ion of President Long, of the Crow's Nest Pass Hockey Lea- gue, to throw cut the protest handed to the referee on the ice before the Lethbridge-Biairtnore game of February 2nd, 1921, we beg to state that we are prepared to challenge the powers of the President In this action; this pro- test must be laid before the ex- ecutive of the League for consid- eration. We are further prepared to car- ry this protest to the Alberta Branch of the A. A. U. of C., if necessary; we consider that this step will probably be compulsory for the reason that President Long is a LetKbridge man, and therefore naturally opposed to our protest. We Issue this statement only as a preliminary one, and with the sole object in view of protect- ing cur supporters in Lethbridge well as Blairmore and other towns. Please give this statement good prominence on your sport- ing page, and greatly oblige, Yours very truly, Btairmcre Hockey Club, per W. H. Chappell, Jr., Pros. When shown the above letter, the league president stated that the ac- tion of the league executive on Sat- urday in upholding his ruling was the most satisfactory answer he could Taber would live up to the hopes of Lethbridge and come out the victors hut Blairmore after they had got their stiffened limbs loosened up com- menced to dash those hopes to the wall and in a hard fought game beat the visitors hy four goals to two. Barbour walked through with nil stiff knee ev'rything" and pushed in two of the goals for his team while little Tony Valprava got in one and Billy Turner got the other. McFar- land of Taber made some great dash- es to the Blairmore goal and once succeeded in beating both Harbour and Turner only to flnd that Rhynas was still in goal. Taking the game ail round it was one of the cleanest that Las been played on this ice. The Taber boys were entertained to supper at the residence of Mrs. Raool Green after the game everyone tried to make them feel at home in the same manner that Taber did when Blairmore paid them a visit. The winning of this game pnts Blairmore back to their rightful place at the top of the league for de- spite the crowiug of the reporter on the Lethbridge game, Blairmore is without doubt the best team in the league. Possibly it is late in the day to pass remarks on the Leth- bridge-GIairmore game hut we must say that the league leaders clayed a hard luck game all through on that occasion. It must be admitted that on points the Blairmore team were tho winners but t'. elr hard luck at the Lethbridge goal lost them the game as far as the scoring went. That was some write up the Leth- bridge Herald reporter gave on that game. It took up three columns of the space ol that valuable paper and it was all about what the Lethbridge players did and how fine they handled the game when really most of the game was Blairmore's.

That's sufficient: any curler understands exactly wha! is meant. The Cadillac Cup has been "It" for just two years now, and there has been a number of endeavors to tag it, but all proved unsuccessful til! Saturday the 5th. The Cadillac Cup left Lethbridge in March of 1919 when the Stewart and Arthur Young rinks came from Mac leod and lifted It. The Cadillac Cup is a two rink com- petition, and when Stewart and were defending, it was like saying it was in a safety deposit vault. The Stewart rink, three brothers and Alex McDonald, are more than! locally famous, havinjc visited Calgary and Winnipeg spiels and ahown with credit on every occasion. The other rink of the defenders needs no intro- duction in Southern Alberta. Arthur Young's fame Is as old ILK the game in this part of the curling world; then ho had "Dad" Stewart the curling an- cestor and proud parent of the Stew- j art rink; D. O.

About it and Reviews League History (From Our Own Correspondent) BLAIRMOKK. Feb. received a great surprise on Saturday morning when news was flashed over the wire that the Taber team was on its way to this town and that the local team must be prepared to play off the postponed league game with that team. Tho orders for the game coming on top ot the news of the defeat ot the groat Lethbridge team by Macleod led ike people of Blair- more to think ihat thero was some motive behind tlio orders and after the Lethbridge Herald reached here and tho nasty shirs were read in that paper regarding the "soft ice" on the Blairmore rink and the "suspicions" of Taber over the postponement of tho game it was easy to surmise that the league heads had an idea that there was a yellow s'reak in the team and thnt, they would call their bluff regarding the soft ice and at the same time throw the fresh Taber tpam wimt they probably thought wouiil IK "all that was left" of the niairtnori! team after Leth- the once, Cl.ev will now meet 1 llrl'Igo "won thelr Ereat victory" twice.

If Lethbridge will look up this standing they will find that Blairmore has won seven games and lost two while Leth- bridge has won five and lost four, and still Blairmore is playing the same men as they opened up the sea- son with at Coleman. Why not put Blairmore in large letters in that table the same as Leth- bridge was printed after they were lucky enougli to slip one over Bla4r- more. We look to the Lethbridge Herald to give us and the other teams in the league as fair a write up as they do the Lethbridge team when they happen to make a win. Items such as "Blairmore was out to put Boucher away" and "Macleod proved too much for a crippled team'1 are un- fair.
