New York. Feb. 9.-Billy .Miske is one fighter wijo Is not afraid to fight. Having cleaned up' all the available light heavyweights In this section. Miske now Is going to try his hand In 20-round bouts at New Orleaiis. Usually when a boxer begins to attract ft little attention he carefully avoids the labor and risk of a longdistance battle. . f' Miske is "going;'i6 face Gunboat Smith early this mouth in the Cres-.cent City. This should .not be a particularly liard.,task.for the conqueror of, Jack Dillon, but .Miske, in V4is enthusiasm, has been doing so much fighting., of late that there is danger of going stale. Jack Dillon was the promoter's first selection,, but, as expected,' the. alleged man killer refused. I not. It is evident that Jie lias 1;lie greatest respect for the St. Paul man. Endurance Is Miske's long suit. He never seems to tire, no matter how fast the going, and there is no doubt that he would outlast Dillon in a long fight and would have a very good chance to score a knockout. Unless Miske agrees to face the giant Fred Pulton or can Induce Les Darcy to take him on, there will he few good matched in sight for Sliske after he haa taken the measure of Smith, In the few short months since he first made his appearance in New York he has gone right through the list of the lighter heavyweights and now he must either take a chance witli the giants or box return matches with men lie already hag defeated. Apparently Miske has been impressed with Fulton's size, for ho admits that he is not ready to mixi it up with ,the tall man from Minnesota. He would like to meet Frank Mbran, but the latter can see no i)ro'fIt in an encounter with the new star. After what happened to Moran in hls-inatch w-Ith Jack Dillon he Is \satisfled i to confine his oflorls to meeting the big fellows who" are only lesg' alow,'ahd clumsy than himself.; " ^_---�-;-. ; Goiters, beware!

L IRTO NTO GREAT (Continued FEOir Fhont Pjioj) .,Mr. Michener: "If the premier"say.s so 1 am willing to withdraw that paiv ticuiur statement, but 1 think as far as 1 !'.m concerned we had every reason to believe there was an election staged.' Whether or not the premier wjis personally responslblo or whether that resppasiblllty rested upon members of'the government,' fta'a. whole I am not prepared to say and wIlL not say, but I do believe tlifere was'an election staged and I think it would haye gone off but for men yfho put patrlotliin and country before politics ,Stich as Dr. Clark, of Red Deer.  ' �': As to tlie provision of loaas to set- ener, was Rladrto see that the government was tlnaiiy-after 12 yi>ars, just on tho eve of gbijfg out of ptnver, beginning to realize" that Iho opposition had been.right .all those years in advocating cheaper money for the agricultural Intcre'stp' of .^llicrla. The lender of* the opposition was proceeding to criticize the proposals laid before the; U.F.A. by Hon. C. R. Mitchell, provincial ft-eu.surer, when Mr. Mitchell interjected. "We do not Intend to occupy the whole loan field, I said We would be a rescula-tor lor the rate of "interest." Mr. Michener: "I hope that will bo done, that is what we have contended for years, and we ^are i)repared to support to the fullest extent any measure along that line." Dealing with the admiiii.'jtration of the liquor act', he-read a letter, which he said was.written by a.Presbyterian clergyman,, who informed hira that an inspector of the llq.uor departmeut had asked him the politics of the clergymen, doctors antf Justice of the peace in his district,- and'ho asked why was that information reguired for the en-forcempnt of the act?

Forster had instructed him to get the.tBplitics of, any person who had anytWug to do with the liquor act.'' T Denies It Mr. Cross; -''Mr'. Forster will absolutely deny -t.hat, and I absolutely deny the statement." There were loud cries from the goverument side of the house for the-udtrfes/of the minister aiid- the inspectofj/: Mr. Micheuei;>&'|)Ji'ed that he would give them 'Wheii'tjiefe was an investigation. ? � Premier Sll'toii Tvhy do you want an investigation'i'^b'eu you have" the names yj?ursell:?''^^''_f,^;':, .

HARRY HOLMAN, MANAGER THE CAR OF THE HOUR From the earliest dawn of Intell'genc^ man has striven cohsiantly for something' "different-something of value-something better. The early nian was purely Individ-^ ual-by this is meaiit,'he was his own farnner, his own baker, :his ovwn tailor and his. own carpenter. The man of today can only hope to be a success by segregating hlm-< self from all except one vocation. He must either be a farmert"^ a baker, a ta'lor or a' . carpenter,,' In other words, this Is an age of spectalizatton. � i: In the early '90's a blacksmith or plumber might have been expected to build an� automobile. Today It would be absurd to even think of such a thing. No business in. the world Is more, highly special'zed than the motor car industry. T,o properly build an automobile today requires not only one specialist, but a group of specialists and each group of motor car specialists, like the early man, is constantly striving for something different-a car of greater value-a Better Car. With this object In view-to build a better car for its price-the Elgin Motor Car Corporation for nearly two years has been supplying a critical motoring public with the "Elgin Six"-the car that has withstood the m'ost gruelling tests imaginiable Builders of "Elgin Six" represent the leading motor car specialists of America. 'I'hey-have been selected from the most successful automobile factories in the countryr- men of national reputation as leaders in their particular field, engineers, designers, managers and mechanical experts! These are the Masters who have made possible the realization of our ideal in the Elgin Six," the car that is "Built Like a Watch." Inhere has always been a strong demand for a moderate priced motor car that em-, bodies the fine principles of construction found-previously' only in the more costly cars. The public heretofore held the big expensive car as their only criterion, of what a", motor car should be, but to purchase" an automobile of this type was an impossibility, for the family of average means. It was with this purpose fn vl,ew~to build a motor car of moderate price, and one which embodied the attractiveness and-durable qualities of the expenaive cars, that the Elgin Motor Car Corporation gave the public the car that Is "Built Like a Watch."; That the "Elgin Six" has supplied this need is conclusively demonstrated by its tre-;^ mendous demand throughout, the entire country. Its rapidly growing popularity is being heralded*from ocean to ocean and from contlnMt't||k.-�ij)t]tlnept.x- . - ...j SEE THIS CAR at 305 6th ST. S., LETHBRIDGE EARL M.
