O. Matheson, (late editor of the Raymond Chronicle and the city treasurer of thot saccharine burg and. still later, defaulter to the tune of S2,0tK�) be true. Not long since, under stress of circumstance, Matheson made confession to a prominent business man of Raymond that he in his capacity of manager of the local baseball team, had agreed to "sell out" an important game last sum' mer to Lethbridge for a consideration of S200. A Lethbridge u\an, not in any way connected with the Lethbridge team, gave him a cheque for 200 before the game was played. Justly or unjustly this statement implicated one or two of the Raymond hoys. When he went to cash the cheque however, he was politely told by the gentlemanly cashier that the cheque had been repudifited. Thus he found himself double-crossed. The boys who were in 011 he deal came around for their whack and it was the predicament thus envolved that caused Matheson to approach this man to help him out.
