Calgary, Dec. .'il.-Calgary carried off the chief honors of the Alberta championship swimming meet at the Y. M. C. A. natatorium last night, taking the club honor.s by -U points lo 30 for Edmonton, and winning the Black trophy for a team race, after the most exciting contest seen in this province for a long time.

Had it not been for the lino 'display by Holmes, the Coleman goal-keeper, tiic score must have been at least double figures, that player saving all kinds and sorts of shots from the Blairmore boys, who seemed, more especially during the last 30 minutes, in irresistible form. There was a largo crowd of supporters of ( both teams present. When the puck | was faced off, Grieshach of Coleman, immediately forged ahead, only lo he , heavily checked by Lewis, whose de- I fense throughout the whole game was a great help to the home team. During a scrimmage in mid-ice, Williams broke away for Coleman, and taking a sudden shot, had the gratification of -seeing the puck pass Briscoe, the result Coleman being one up. The home goalie should easily have saved the shot, hul by some unaccountable action on his part the puck sailed easily by him, although later in the game he retrieved himself by making one or two clearances, although it cannot be said his work inspired confidence in the rest of his colleagues. See saw play took place for a while, Coleman crossing over at the first period leading by one goal. During the second twenty, and by some splendid work by Grace, Turner and Turcott, the Blairmore boys eventually wore down the defense of tlie Coleman team, Turner succeeding in equali/Jng. There is no denying the faci; that the Coleman boys were not up to their standard of a week ago, when they succeeded in beating Bellevue by 'i to their work and shooting upon the present occasion being very poor indeed, Gricshack alone playing anything like his usual game. During the second period one or two stoppages took place for minor injuries to the players, osving to the soft nature of Ihe ice, which was very soft owing to the summevliko weather prevailing. I pon the commencement of the linal twenty a great change came over the Blairmore attack, there was no holding llicm, and it could be easily .seen that either the Coleman del'enso would have to extend themselves more,-and they were playing a great, game up to now,-or Holmes would again have lo use all his ingenuity to prevent the Blairmore Icain from scoring as practically the whole ot the players from point to rover, were intent upon getting a goal. By skilful combination, backed up by a -solid defense, more goals were added, Blairmore being winners as stated. With the exception of Briscoe being a little on the nervous side, and God--dard sulTcriiig from the effects of a previous accident, the whole of tho Blairmore hoys displayed a class ot hockey that must carry them well forward in the league. Of the Coleman team it is hard to say, maybe some of them were suffering from the New Year's festivities. Holmes aU'l tiriesback e.xceptcd.
