In a telegram received from Tom Walsh at Chicago yesterday he said the Detroit middleweight would leave Chicago on Friday for his bout v/ith Young Al Ross in Lethbridge next Tuesday evening, Jan. 19th. This should bring him into Lethbridge on Sunday, giving him two days to rest and show the fans his style in a public workout on Monday. Owing to the sudden change in the arrangements it is impossible to get Brennan here any sooner, but as the famous -dleweight is right now in f it  '. ".ondi'ion there is no ne-cei ry for him to train here. Young Rose has put on an extra spurt in his training campaign since he heard Kayo-Brennan is to be his next opponent and the fans ece him hard at work every afternoon over the Plaza. Ross is doing roadwork for his wind, and with his tonsils removed he should not have the same trouble from this source as he had in the Harrison mate* where his wind was very bad that match owing to the har ,rk it was for him to get hi: ^ath he could not keep his chin uown and covered as is his usual fighting style and thus he left himself open more than is his custotn when mixing it in the ring. The fans are highly elated with the opportunity to see Brennan in action. Any man who has gone the route with such men as the Gibbons Bros., George Chip, Jack Dillon, etc., puts him away above anyone who has ever appeared in action here in point of reputation, though there are many who doubt that he can be any better than the young, and coming F 1 Harrison. The fight is destined j draw the biggest crowd ever, and orders for seats are already pouring in from outlying points. M.

This moans business, so that from now on tho southern championship and later provincial championship will not have only two principal southern contenders, but as Steed says, Stirling is going iu to win.

"Dr. Ferguson seems to think thnt the Mom�;ns are a menace to ("ana-dianism, ami the institutions of Canada. Men high in CVnadian official life, who have made the statement, t that tho Mormon people are among the best, colonizers, and settlers, that have eome to the Canadian west the most thrifty and frugal. The history Of the .Mormon people is interwoven with the settlement of the great west, and through their industry have caused great arid regions to blossom as a rose, by turning the mountain streams over the parched__soil, thereby redeeming it. and earning for themselves the distinction of being the fathers of irrigation iu modern times. In reference to polygamy, which Dr. Ferguson seems greatly alarmed over, i will state that in the year 1890, what is knowi^ as the "Manisfesto," was issued by President Wilford Woodruff, and since that time the church has ceased soiomnizing plural marriages. 1 Plural marriages since that date have i not been more frequent-than bigamy 'among Methodists, or any other se.-t.

The, weather man has been called up and abused somewhat the last few days. Dune Duf called him up last night and said: "Send that thermometer down aii inch, inch and a half, or two inches." So when Did; Andrews looked out of his window this morning he remarked: "1 knew you could do it.'" There will be four games played tonight, three in the city championship which will bring this competition out into the fours, and one game in the Colts competition. Letters are being sent, today to the clubs advising them to pack their tarns and their brooms and be all dressed up roaring to go to Lethbridge for next Monday morning.

Now the sports up north proceed to suggest games and terms whicrf are all to the merry for the Eskimos. They oven suggest the organization of a j committee to control basketball, overlooking the A.A.I.J, basketball committee, of which Cecil B. Hace. of Edmonton is chairman. Here is the latest, rei^rt from the far north: "Considerable controversy has arisen in basketball circles regarding how I be schedule for the championship of Alberta is to be decided.

NOT ONE although between forty-iive and fifty thousand cars have been equip- ed that they be broken up into two tennis - namely, Namao and the Y.M.C.A.-and that (hese teams journey to Calgary and play a schedule for the championship. This evidently would take the form of a three-team contest, two Edmonton loams and one Calgary. While this proposal is flattering to Edmonton, the sturdy basket tossers from this city were not horn yesterday, and, although- they feel that they could yipe Calgary off the map even with their teams broken up. still they are taking no chances, and have proposed the following: "That Uaymoud and Lethbridge play off to decide the southern title; Calgary Y.M.C.A. and Edmonton Y.M.C.A. play homo ami home games to decide Hie inter-ciJy title, the first game to he played in KdinTmlon on February 11. when Calgary can take advantage of the cheap rates prevailing for the Notary Club convention here.
