Butte, 'Mont., Jan. 14.-The Butte chamber of commerce lias gone on record as being unequivocally opposed to racing, as it is conducted in Sliver .Bow county. In a report of the executive board adopted almost unaii-mously by the chamber the thirty-day meetings in Butte, together with the 14 day meetings 'in Deer Lodge and -Anaconda are denounced as an unmixed evil detriment to the community. Inauguration of a niovameut for limitation of race meetings to 15 days in this county and aboiition of bookmaking and pool selling is strongly urged. Further investigation will ibe made with a viev of bringing about an ultimate result of 15 iayaof racing In Butte ana limned periods in other counties uader diruc-tion of a racing commissian. "1 have purchased the best car of wheat ever sold in .Vlberta, and paid the highest price per bushel in Alberta. The car wont to Mlnneapolta where they pay a good price. I'm not going to tell you what it was, but you can say that 1 know what 1 am talking about when i mention wheat, and you can use my nanin," \m. D. Flnley. signed and sworn to. The wheat In question came from the prize lot owmed 'by Nick Taltlinger, of Clareeliolm, who has won many prizes at various places for his grains. It went to the A. Huhn Elevator Company at Minneapolis. The farnierr, i around Grassy Luke had spasms they ! other day when a man was heralded I as offering 87 cents, and Mr. Finlejj has fears that the farmers of this district would have worse than that 1� he disclosed the price he paid ^Ir. TaltUJiger, but says that the fact that the shipment came from one of the best known grain growers in the west, Is evidence onougli that it was high class, and that anything really high class commands the price.

The meeting decided to ask that a ' I board of appeals be appointed by tiie 0 i American Trotting Association for the 0 territory covered by the Western 2 Canada Racing Circuit, the board to 3 be composed of one representative of M, an exhibition and cne representative 0 of the horsemen from Manitoba, Sas-^ kaichewan and .�Vlberta, of which the president of the .American Trotting ' Association would be chairman. This board to meet once a year to settle ^ cases arising in Western Canada, and j with the right to appeal, if desired, to - the general board of appeals, which 0 ; meets in Chicago. The running races " i will be conducted under the Pacitic ^ I Coast racing rules. The American Trotting Association will be asked to include in their rules conditions for futurity races. .V number of applications for start-i ers were presented tc the meeting, and after careful consideration, Jas. Osborne was selected to start the j running horses over the entire circuit and Dr. John Scott to start the harness races for the meets of the circuit, commencing at Regina spring : meeting. The question of the exclusive use of i muluels over the circuit fcr 1914 will i be decided by their local boards. The nieeiiiig recommended to each lUfniber the advi.oabi!ily of including in their race program a class for foals of ISll or iS'i:; for trotters anil pacers, and for foals of I'.MJ for runner.-;, open to horses foaled in Western Canada. Those prc-seni at the, meeting were entertained at lunch at the .Metropole Hotel by the Regina Kxhiijilion Koard. and it was evident all through thi! meetings held that each member was prepared to do everything in liis power for the harmony and welfai-o of the circuit. Each member present realized that they could not expect to have every decision rendered to suit them, and the best compromise for the general good was arrived at ia each case and made unanimous. D. E. Macdonald 410.5th Street Asent Indian Motor Cycle Xew York, Jan. 14.-The lead-off man on a big league bail club plays a most important part in the game. His ability to "get on" whether on a hit or a pass often has helped to win more than one game. Last season, strange to say, not a .300 hitter led off for any of the sixteen major league clubs, but there were several lead-off men wno were more valuable to their clubs than the stickers and these were players who managed to get on the bases more often than the heavy sluggers. In 19i;{. the St. Louis clubs claimed the best lead-off men. They were Mliler Huggins of the Cardinals and Hert Shotten of the Bro\vnB. Hug-gins' value as first man at bat was apparent because of the fact that he drew 92 bases on balls. But Shotten was even more valuable, as he walked 102 times during the season. Eddie .Murphy, of the Athletics, however, was the leader of them all He strolled only 68 times but hit for .295. Bush of Detroit, another man of small stature, also was valuable drawing 80 passes, Fritz Maiael, the Yankee's tliird sacker. proved to be a good man to lead off for the Yankees, for 51 games he made 4S hits and accepted 3C gifts. .Moeller of Washington walked 72 limes, but he struck out more than any other player in the American league. Hooper of the Red Sox and Weaver of the White Sox were only fair. The former hit for .289 and took i!3 passes, while the latter hit .i;72 and walked 21 times. Next to Huggins, Tommy Leach of the Cubs was about the best leader-off the National League had as the veteran averaged a hit to a game and drew 74 passes. Rob Bescher proved an excellent waiter, walking 94 times and also batted well. Little .Maran-villc of the Braves drew 68 passes, almost averaging a hit to a game in addition. None of the other .National league lead-oft' men, Snodgrass, Burns Dolan, Byrne and .\Ioran made much of a sliowing, Magrath, Alta., Jan. 14.-The jMa-grath senior and intermediate basketball squads won two splendid victories last evening in the Electric theatre, when they routed two picked teaULS representing the Knight .-Vcad-emy, of Kaymond. Both local teams showed splendid form, and the score was never in dangerous bounds. The lixst game was won easily by the local quintet, tlie-.score being rather onesided throughout the efl^gement. The K. A. boys worked liard, but they were plainly outclassed. The senior game was more exciting, although the result was never in doubt. The Magrath tfcam introduced some fast combination work, which could not be solved by the visitors. The first half was a clean shut-out for the Academy, Magrath piling up eighteen baskets. In the second half, however, the ball was in the. territory oi the K. A. considerably, and with rather slack checking on the part oi Magrath's guards, four baskets were caged by the t'wo Eider brothers. This put the homesters on their mettle again, and thej' came back strong with eight baskets. The final score wa.s 3.5^6 in favor of the local team. The game was a good exhibition, clean and gentlemanly. The K. A. boys are a good bunch of sports, and will always find a cordial welcome in the Garden City. The senior teams lined up as follows : Raymond-Harris, centre ; Stev.ens and Christensen, guards ; C. Elder and M. Elder, forwards. Magrath-Wooli, centre ; Bridge;and Scott, guards ; Rasmussen and Mercer, forwards. JeHrey, Raymond, referee, and a good one, too. Instructors Tanner and Allen accompanied the K. A. team from the Sugar City, as well as a number oi the fair rah rah girls, who encouraged their favorites wonderfully. ALLEN TO DEFEND TITLE IN SEATTLE In order that those who are unable to attend church may listen to all that is going on, and still remain in their homes, it is probable that a system of telephonic communication may be established between Knox church and the homes where invalids or others unable to go outside reside. / The matter was broaohed last night 4t the annual meeting of the congregation, the suggestion being made by Dr. ^fcClure, who had prepared data on cost of the proposed scheme. It was moved that the matter be left in the hands of the board of managers after it had been ratified by the session. The mover remarked in 'proposing his motion that personally he would be tickled to death to remain in bed on Sunday morning and listen to the strains of the mu�ic by Knox choir. It was also suggested that subscribers to the convenience be put on the envelope list, so that collections would tiot decrease. It is understood that the cost of installing such a system would be very nominal, and ail seemed to be in favor of it. There are many who are compelled to lie in bed through illness w;ho would enjoy the music and sermons.

Vancouver, Jan. 14-The Pacific lioi;ki;y league has been remarkably unfortunate so far this season in being crippled by injuries to players, and every team in the league has suffered in this respect. New Westminster has been particularly unfortunate. With Ernie .iohnson just recovering from a out foot and Charlie To-bin still on the hospital list with a ukinned ankle the team is further weakened by the retirement of Ed. Oatman, who sustained a broken toe in the game against 'Vancouver last Friday night. Frank Patrick stepped on Caiman's foot in attempting to hurdle and the little toe was fractured. Oatman may be out of the game lor six weeks. Seattle, Jan. 14.-Bennie Allen, of Kansas City, pool champion of the world-pocket billiards it is called now-win defend his title in Seattle, January 28, 29 and 30, playing James Maturo. The games will be played at Brown & Hulen's, for they outbid billiard hall men of Denver, LiOB Angeles, San Francisco and Portland for the matches, Allen recently belS Cowboy Weston, who challenged, and right now he is at the top of his game. This will be the first world's championship match ever played here and the games are certain to pull big crowds. 3 for 2S cents ARROW Unit, Cardston, Jan. 15.--A. hog stealing story oi some interest comes from the Owendale, Woolford, and Kimball districts. For several months it is alleged that porkers have been missing from the pens of the residents ot ' these districts, and the local Cards- ' ton paper has been carrying lost advertising for several herds and single animals that were .supposed at first to have strayed away. It now comes to light that a lai'm-nr in the south country has been shipping more hogs than he had raised himseif and his hills of sale do not show the purchase oi as many as he has running on his place. It is further stated that this man .shipped nearly a carload of porkers at one time, most of which are said to have been taken from the pens oi other I people during the night. The same in- j dividual is said to have been caught butchering hogs in the dark hours of the morning, and that the.-ic hogs were sold locally. The case is being investigated and it is thought that evidence will soon be forthcoming that will convict the party guilty of the crime. .�\ bill consolidating the railway net, its various aniendments as well as bills relating to the oivil servico iHid to trust and loan companies will bp siibniiltcd for vour consideration. . WESTERN �SEN'.VTORS Several other hills will he subinit-tcd, including measures providing for increased representation of the province of Manitoba, .Saskatchewan, /Vlberta and British (.'oUinibia in Ihe senate. The volume of immigration during the present fiscal year promises to be greater than that of any preceding year. It has come in greatest measure from the Rritish Isles, and from the United States but a large amount of dosirable immigration has also reached our shores from other countries. AG R t C L"LT I' R A L EI) 1' C AT I OX Vou will he pleased fo learn that satisfactory arrangements have been made with Llic various provinces under the agricultural instruction act passed at the last session. My advisers are convinced that the co-operation between the Dominion and the province which is thus alTorded will accomplish excellent results in assuring better agricultural instruction and needful improvement oi existing methods oi agriculture. R AILWA Y DE V lOLO PM EN T The work on the National Transcontinental railway has been rapidly advanced during the past year, and notwithstanding the difhculties attending the construction of the Hud-Bon Bay railway and the provision of terminals every possible progress has been made in bringing that important project nearer to completion. .NOTHING ABOUT FREE WHEAT In connection with the highly important subject ot transportation of our products the provision oi adequate terminal facilities at our great national ports has received and is receiving the aliention ot my advisors. You have doubtless learned with satisfaction that the new government terminal elevator at Port .Arthur is completed and tliat it has been in operation since October last. In conjunction with this a system of interior terminal elevators has been begun which will provide largely increased ' facilities for the farmers of the great grain producing provinces. SAFETY AT SEA The international conference on safety of life at sea which has been in sessiC'H in I^ondon for several weeks, has had under consideration questions of highest importance, and it is hoped that its deliberations may I result in more cflective measures for assuring the safety of the passengers and crew.'; oi ocean-going steamships. Representatives of Canada were appointed by order-in-council and may have been in attendance at all sessions of the conference. Gentlemen of the House of Commons : The accounts for the last fi.s-cal year will be laid before you. You will he pleased to know that the revenue has hqen ample to cover both ordinary and capital expenditure. The estimates for the next fiscal year will he submitted at an early date.
