Harrison, who has friends in Moose Jawf will stop off there for a day on the way up. He saya he is in great condition for the go although he would have liked to have had an additional five days to train. This is the first time the local club has gone east for an opponent for Ross and the fans are voicing their appreciation. The stamp of approval set on the Chicago mitt-artist by Edw. Smith, well-known referee, and also by our local townsman, Chas. Cave, has satisfied the fans thDt one of the best In the middleweight section will give Ross his next battle, and they will then get a line on Ross* real fighting ability.

Herald) Los Angeles, Jan. 5.-J. W. McCIain, proprietor of the California Stock Farms, announced today that he had sold "Homer Mac", 2.0614, to Wilfrid J. Skinnard, of Medicine Hat, for $2500. Alexander Soon Will Be Hasbeen Says W. Baker Next to General H., owned by Haig of Calgary, a few years ago and sold by him to the Czar of Russia, Homer Mac was the best horse ever owned in Alberta. J. W. McCIain, owner of the big McCIain ranch at Monarch, had him on the western circuit a few years ago and the following year he was on the grand circuit where he cleaned up big money. Medicine Hat will now get this noble trackster through the enterprise of Mr. Skinnard, who is well known in Lethbridge. The deal is one of the most important in the turf history of the province. (By H. C. Hamilton) -Now York, Jan. 5. - The sale of Ornver Cleveland Alexander to the Chicago Cubs did more than merely shako I he foundations of the National league with a cold and rasping rattle. The news laid hold of Philadelphia skeletons as it skidded up and down Peacock alley and rattled the old bones of hidden Philly skeletons until magnates, fans and critics amoat trembled. William F. Baker opened up the casket and displayed the bones of the carefully hidden skeleton. It seems that Uaker grew considerably peeved when criticism began to whizz around his head for the sale of his star battery. So he immediately began giving hia reasons and apille'd the news that Grover Alovander is one of the boys who do not keep themselves In the best of condition. Alexander, according to President Baker, was sold for just that reason. Baker does not believe Alexander's effectiveness will bo so pronounced next season, and declares he sees a beginning of tho end for tho power that lurks in the famous pitcher's right arm. He believes if he had tarried a year to cut the strings that bound phiycr and club together his star's value would have decreased until it would have touched at about $15,000, Alexander's habits, according to Baker, are rapidly cutting the sfcur'a worth and soon will lay him among the has-beens. Baker, however, declared he parted from Alexander with the friendliest of feelings. He pointed to the brilliant path the star right-hander has left as a monument in Philadelphia and asserted there isn't another pitcher in the business who would have been able to keep up under the strain of such hard work,. The case of KUlifer, who goes to Chi- cago with Alexander, according to Baker, is considerably different. There is a distinct peeve existing in Phlladeh phia over the way Klllefer has acted. He antagonized Baker last fall at the end of the season, according to the club president when he flung himself out of the Philly office and announced he would quit baseball. He had been informed a salary cut would be necessary. According to Baker, Kille-fer was on the market and would have been traded to some club without Alexander being included had the Chi-cago offer not come along. Another cog is expected to be knocked from tho Philly machine, before spring. Fred Luderus, It is said, vill be released. NIGHBOR FOR OTTAWAS Ottawa, Jan. S.-Officers of the Ottawa Hockey club stated last night that there was no truth in the report, Issued at Montreal today, that Frank Nighbor would go to the Torontos. Nighbor is under contract with the Ot-tawas and the locals hope to have him down in a few days. Their negotiations with the Torontos were not successful. Jack Darragh has retired from the Ottawa team, and it is likely that Marry Hyland, of the Wanderers, will be signed to replace him. Big Crowd Will Be on Deck for Tomorrow When Pictures Will Be Taken More than a dozen golfers were making the rounds of the course at Henderson Lake yesterday. That number will be doubled twice over this afternoon and tomorrow. H. A. McKillop, one of the 1917 beginners who established a record as a consistent player, Went round In his shirt sleeves, doing the nine holes in 50, and states that the course was in great shape. H. W. Crawford, E. H. Wilson and uudge Jackson were among the others who were enjoying the balmy January air of the links. Arrangements are being made to take photographs of the course and the crowd tomorrow. N. Y.

WE THANK VOl\ His Third Division Baseball Team Bust Up-Was a Great Aggregation Edmonton Journal: - Deacon White, spending ten days' leave in Paris, his first furlough since*joining the 4'Jth regiment in France, has written an interesting letter to Fred W. Brown, in which he tells of passing through the Passchendacio "scrap" without receiving a scratch. Deacon's letter, in part, is as follows: "My third 'division baseball team was broken up the latter part of July and the players ana myself returned to our units, after defeating all-comers by such one-sided scores that tiie games were devoid of interest. You see, after winning the championship of the Canadian corps in scheduled tournameut games, we were brought together at divisional headquarters to perform for the entertainment, of the troops who' happened to be out at rest. "We played eames every night against the best teams we could find in the corps and slaughtered them all. We gave the 2nd division, who were eliminated by the 1st division in the championship contests, a trial against us. And> who do you think was captain of the team? Our old friend Eap-ley. Del Gauchee was playing left field for them. We beat them 14 to 5 and 11 to 4 on their own grounds. 1 must say that I had a bunch collected that could step into the Western Canada league and hold its own. There was nothing in alt Europe at that time in the same class with them. There was great talk of sending us to London, but the trip did not materialize and when the whole division went out for a rest all units were so separated that the ball team was disbanded.. "I have been with the battalion ever since. Put in two trips north of Lens around Hill 70 and two trips at Ypres, going over the top with the battalion at Passchendaele and being one of the lucky few to come out whole. It was probably the hottest engagement the Canadians have been engaged in since operations commenced." The Deacon senilis New Year's greetings to his many friends. t The >V: tit M i;v, \ tu M & T s ii - ^ � � "13" may be an unlucky number, but if you were earning $12.00 a day, you would not refuse an extra dollar. t The pocket nerve is the most sensitive.

DAVIS & SONS LIMITED, MONTREAL. 397 THE ALBERTA SAVINGS NTOS TO SUE i I Toronto, Jan. 4.-The Toronto professional hockey club will enter suit against the Wanderers, if the Montreal club does not put in an appearance tomorrow night for their scheduled game at the Arena. It is also announced that the local club will force the payment by j President Lichtenstein of the $5,-i 000 forfeiture bond. In the divis-( ion of the Wanderer-; players the Torontos will demand thnt Holmes and either Hyland or Mncdonald be turned over to them. The Hon. C.R. Mitchell, provincial treasurer. Honorary treasurer of the Halifax Jtelief Fund, announces that the committees in charge* of the campaign are doing splendid work. As In the Victory Loan canvass, their unselfish and patriotic efforts have met. with a ready response from tho public generally. It is only fair to say, how-tver, that better results were expected from some parts of the province than have been forthcoming. The appalling nature of the disaster has been further added to by recent disclosures which show that the loss and suffering are intense. Each one, therefore, should recognize his individual responsibility in the matter and help the Fund by a prompt remittance. To correct any misunderstanding that may exist with reference to collecting and forwarding contributions,! it may be again stated, that all hanks or other organizations or individuals, authorized to collect for the fund, have been instructed to send their remittances, from time to time, to the central committee tor deposit to the. credit of the provincial treasurer's Halifax Relief Fund, out of which payments are forwarded to the central fund at Halifax. Payments nude to the provincial treasurer direct will be acknowledged by official receipt. Remember, it is not yet loo hue to Kive. Tiie fund is .still open. A good illustration of what printer's ink can accomplish when applied to a?i honest and popular idea is shown in the results obtained from advertising Province of Alberta Savings Certificates. A small sum was set aside by the provincial government for the purpose of familiarizing the .public with this excellent savfngs plan. Advertisements were inserted from time to time in the daily and weekly papers of the province and also in the various farm journals of Western Canada, with tho result that savings sertificates were sold in five provinces^ in Canada, four states of the Union and a small amount even in far-off China. The eastern and 'western extent of this territory is eight thousand miles, while its northern and southern limits extend from the Peace River in tho north to the State of Kansas. With all due regard to the attractive form of investment, it must be admitted that without tho wide i publicity that it received, the above successful results could hardly have been hoped for. The provincial treasurer is fully satisfied with the success of the plan to date, as coiisiduribln amounts of money have been deposited in the provincial treasury.
