It was a perfect day: there was not a breath of wind, the sun shone warmly and the thermometer registered (degrees above. Tin.' players were garbed in the identical costume that would adorn them in a game in July and very few spectators appeared with even a fall overcoat. So much the weather, now for the match Lethbridge simply won in a canter. Calgary's players acted as though they had. been up all winter and hadn't thawed out. The local, battery, Anderson and Honk, couldn't be solved by the visitors. Anderson a steady pitcher and no man ;ould handle his delivery better jchind the plate than Houk. Mc- Lean, the man Calgary placed in ,he box at first, came close to jetting the ball over uie plate as 3eorge Houk could come to get- ting metre' into a verse of poetry or Fred Rooney could come to stand- ing on a pair of roller skates. McLean was jerked out after he had given Lethbridge a Lead that Maude'S. in her palmy days could not have overtaken, with a handi- cap.

Calgary managed to slip one run into the score card in the third innings. pitched the last few innings for Calgary, did well, not allowing Lethbridge to score. There were some striking plays during the match, the Leth- bridge field handling the "high to the delight of their sup- porters. Calgary chased the ball about the field as though they were playing blind man's buff.. A. E. Humphries umpired the match, and as he is still living and bears no marks of mutilation, it is needless to say his decisions were acceptable. The Lethbridge liberal associ- ation at its annual meeting last night pronounced in a most em- phatic manner in favor of the provincial government demanding a money deposit from every com- pany seeking a railroad charter and compelling the company also to guarantee to construct the road within a certain lime. Failure to carry out this provision, would re- sult in the money being forfeited. The resolution, which also included a clause that a railway act should be adopted, regulating rates, charters, was moved by W. C. Simmons, seconded by Win.Oliver and unanimously carried. It was pointed out by these gentlemen and Dr. Galbraith. M. Young and John Brotlie that legislation of this sort was necessary to safeguard the interests of the people. An act was wanted that would make the railroads sit up straight. They did not wunt a repetition of the C. P. R.'s conduct in passing by the towns of Macleod and Pincher Greek, just because these places would not be held up by the cor- poration. The meeting was largely attend- ed and much interest was evinced in the proceedings, Win. Oliver presided until the new officers had been elected as follows: Presi- dent. A. M. Grace; 1st vice presi- dent, John Brodie: 2nd vice presi- eent, E.N. Higinbotham: secretary, C. V. Bennett: treasurer, Brown Pipes: Galbraith, John Bruce. M. Young. W. Oliver. M. Oleson, A. B. Stafford, 'Fred. Rooney A number of new mem- bers were elected. The necessity of a strict game law was emphasized. Attention was drawn to the reckless slaughter leer by the -Stoney Indians. It was suggested that the government should provide for a gun license and pay game guardians for en- forcing the law. Tl e retiring officers received a hearty vote of thanks before the meeting adjourned. TAILORING Now is the time to place your order for a Suit or Overcoat cr extra Trousers.

It is quite possible that physical drill will be introduced in the pub- lic schools of: the town. A com- munication came before the bocrd of education at a meeting Monday night from J. R. Edwards, offering his services as instructor, in case they decided to have military or physical drill. In consequence a committee was appointed to confer with Mr. Edwards in regard t.o the matter. The trustees seem to favor the idea. The teachers in the schools were instructed to keep a record of the temperature in the class rooms during February. An application from Miss Alice B.
