The southerners did not hesitate to state In their letter ^that they had, not lost a game as yet this year, and there can be no doubt that' they will be fast or they would not be travelling as they are. , But perhaps what pleases the fans the-most is the early prospect of a game with Raymond, scheduled 'to take place Friday, January Z5th.

They will play oft the Southern Alberta *championship^ hy a series ot three/games, the winners of the best two out ot three games'to represent thej south against Calgary and Edmonton in a championship match.

Walters, formerly^ of the Western Cahada league, is ihe smallest, and Hannah the largest catcher, in professional baseball - In class AA or higher company - and the largest ca_tcher Is going up to the majors as' the understudy of the smallCBt catch- This also brings up the fact Hannah was a fixture with the Sacramento dub in the coast league, when Walter McCredie considered Walters too small tor a catcherr and turned him loose without permitting hl'm to catch a full game, \ Ottawa, Jan. 12.--That carbon coal briquettes- can be laid down at many points in the prairie provinces-but more particularly in JIanltoba and Saskatchewan-al a lower cost than anthracite is tho findIng.of tho committee on mlner.ils ot the commission of conservation just made public. The report whlcii was prepared by W, J^ Dick, mining engineer to the commls-slon. Is the result ot an investigation made by him Into the possibilities of the lignite coal fields ot Western Canada as a source of coal supply for domestic purposes, Mr. Dick in his report gives the following estimate of the saving which would result from the use of carbonized briquettes instead of anthracite In certain cities and towns In Manitoba . and Saskatchewan and points out Incidentally that the price of anthracite Is certain to Increase. Portage La Prairie, nothing 'to 45 cents; Carberry SO cents to �1.30; Brandon 85 cents to $1.10; Vlrden 95 cents to |2.30; Moosomln 95 cents to $2.20; Wolselcy |1.45'to |1.70; Reglna $1,75 to $2.40; Moose Jaw $1.70 tb $2.50. . ' The estimated cost of laying briquettes down at Winnipeg Is $10,15 p-ar ton, or slightly more than the cost of anthracite. The report recommends the estib-lishment at either Estevan or Bioii-fait of a plant,^ith a capacity of :oa tons per hohr; but it would be opernt.;.! up to halt its capacity only until phur-en. The briquettes could be mate from fcoal waste or slack which could be purchased.from the mines at a low figure. ' "It win be "seen," says the report, 'that Reglna and Moo^e Jaw could con-' aume the total output from the proposed plant and that, at these Dbints the minimum difference in favor ol the briquettes over United Stales anthracite coal is 11.70,per.ton. In the Intervening country districts the saving would bo greater. Assuming-that, in order to give. the' consumer: some benefit from the mahufacture of (hese br'quettes the retail lllng ^rlce be $1.70 below tho prlqa o( anthracite coal, there would still ha a profit ,dl $1.00 per ton, or $30,000 on the thirty' thousand tons made, equal to 7 1-L' per centj on the Investment.' In addition tv this profit there would be kept In Canada, annually, some $200,000, ni "halt the total money spent on the plant. There Is a possible market tor this class of fuel equal to at least nine times tho capacity of the, proposed plant." ; \ RAILWAY EARNINGS GAMES POSTPONED HompBtead'will make an effort In Cincinnati captain ot the I while doing them he explains the bene- TMy Wear Longer to trade Charlie Herzog.iJYn'lloojnK ,-...........e Giants, to Chicago or P"*** During his perform-some other club.
