The interests of that body, while sitting in solemn conclave, are Inimical with those of the newspapers. The executive, meetings ol' the board of trade will hereafter be star chamber. At the first meeting of the council of the board held last evening, the following motion, moved by R. E. Mc-Arthur and seconded by John Home, was unanimously passed: "That representatives of the press be requested not to attend council meetings of the board, and no business be given out for publication uu-less it has been dealt with by the board, and that the press be, given such reports only as may be prepared by the secretary and approved by an. officer of the board." The above motion is the culmination of a long drawn out fight between the boaTd and the press' of the city as to the rights of the press to attend executive meetings of the' organization. During the past year newspaper men attending th� meetings have had to fight for their cause at different times, but always prevailed. This year; however, a new. order of things obtains. Evidently the board does not intend to ask the city council for a grant, and as it will be more or less of a closed corporation, its business will be transacted in secret, and the preBs -will be given only what the executive deems it wise for the public to know. The old sore was opened by President Ives at' the conclusion of -the meeting'. Someone had moved an adjournment, and the newspaper representatives were getting ready to leave. The bomb was then exploded, and before the smoke had cleared away they had said bood'bye to all their friends on the executive for the year-1113-at least in. so far as any expectation of meeting them at future meetings is concerned. The president said he - bad been misrepresented in the morning paper regarding something he had said about raiding the fee, which he claim-ed made him look quite too ridiculous. John Home said the Herald had made too ' many prognostications about what was going to be done that evening regarding the G. N. R. freight rates case. He thought it 'was' so much, bunk, and didn't mind saying so. John Taylor was of the opinion at first that the newspapers were not b'o black as. they sometimes appear, but he changed his mind after lie had been told about the numbeKof d^nls which had been queered owing to ��. premature publication. It was. the general concensus of opinion that tUts, newspapers should not butt into private affairs, and if'there is anything; to be given out the secretary ttIJI? do.:> to ask just when the papers might� expect to receive the specially pre-. pared reports. One gentleman remarked that waiting, from onejWeek to another to give Out reports mUght seem like asking the papers to ppjiit a chapter of ancient history. How-': eyer, the president said they, "would have to wait until the secretary, gpt ready to hand them out, and that was all the satisfaction, the press could get for their trouble. .. �*���>;'� Several other matters relating to industries and finance were discussed at great length. > , Mr. and Mrs. George H. Pedlar of Qshawa have given $10,000 for a surgical wing to the ihospital as a memorial to their son, who died two years ago. BASKETBALL ECHOES FROM THE SOUTH Magrath, Jan. 23.-As the Mutual basketball league progresses excitement increases, and it would not be safe to predict the cup winners",: although Stirling is looming up. bjg. They have played three games; 'all with Raymond teams, and woiv every: game. But happily the end is' in sight, aud the Junction Bquadron, if the humble opinion of your correspondent is worth anything, will receive a serious blow soon to their "hog" bus|ness. Steed, the backbone of the Stirling team, and the Frank Chance of basketball in the south;'.are quitting this neck of the worlds next week; He is leaving for Utah, whore lie will take up a course in the. Mormon nllli""l> (rwmiinuinm . o (� Mult- T;i�lrA' in athletics and coaching. His place will 4)6 difficult to fill, and the other teams of the league are secretly rejoicing. Stirling still has a fast team, and the aggregations will now be more evenly balanced. ...The- two Raymond teams are iu splendid form. They clash Friday night in the Knight Academy gymnasium. . ft promises to be a tooth and nail conflict, your scribe picks the First Ward team as winners. They have it on their enemy in science, which "after all countB mainly in basketball. In weight they aro pretty well balanced, but in reach . and accuracy in the shoot, Walker, centre for the Second- Warders,, has no respectable competitors. ' Rlugrath's future-that is, banket-ball future-Is a little uncertain yet. Sim iu mi .f||� wilv all j'IkIiI.. luit bow large is a question.
