So much alicml the weatjif-r. now for the nialch jjethbndge simply won in a canter. Calgary's jjlayers ac'C'l as ! hough they lia.d been fro/.c'ii up all wintiT and hadn't thawi'd oul. The local battery. Anderson and Honk, couldn't be sol\-ed by (he visilors. Anderson is a steady |)itcher and no man could handle his delivery Ijetter behind the [ilate than Houk. McLean, the man Calgary placed hi the box at first, came as close to getting the bull over tlie plate as (leoige Honk coidd come to getting metre into a verse of poetr\'or Fred Kooney could come to standing on a pair of roller skates. McLean was jerked cut after he had given Lt-thbridgi: a lead that Maude S. in her palmy days could not have ov(u-taken, with a handicap. Ill tlie Hrst innings the savagris chalked up five, in the second, three, in the third, two. in the fourth, three, but nothing after that, the total tally being 13. Calgary managed to slip one run into the score card in the third iniun'gs. Irvine, wlio pitched the last few innings for Calgary, did well, not allowing Lethbridge to score. There were some striking play* during the match, the Lethbridge field handling the "high balls" to the delight of their snjj-i:>orters. t'algary chased the ball about th(- field as though they were ])laying lilind man's bntf. A. E. Humphries umpired the match, and as le is still living and bears no marks of mutilation, it is needless to say his decisions were acce])talile. ELECTEDOFFICERS Annual Meeting of Lethbridge Liberals! A. M. GRACE ThTnEW PRESIDENT HOT LI NEKS Andeison will do. thanks. Only seven innings were playt^i. Who said thirteen was an unlucky nniuber';' The Culgary boys weri^'taken for a drive arouiui town after the inalch. Fred lv(>nny got a blow in the eye. but it did not lea\-(> much of a mark. Mayor Rogers officially opened the haseliall season by throwing the first ball. One youngster cha.llengo;d a Calgary player to a game of marbles after the match was oviT. Tin,' only silk hat in town got a good viev.- ol llu! match. It occupied a resi-rved seat on Cieo. Hotik's head. Houk. jr.. is as good a catcher as Houk. sr.. is an I'nthusiast. and everybody knows that to mean he is a dandy. .Moore. Simmons. Anderson and Houk scored two runs each and the rest of the team one each. J'etrie pulled in the only run for Calgary in the third innings.

The Lethbridge liberal association at its annual meeting last night pronounced in a most emphatic manner in favor of the [)rovincial government demanding a nioiKjy deposit from evtuy company seeking a railroad charter and compelling the company also to guarantee to construct the road within a certain time. Failure to carry out this provision, would result in the money being forfeited. The resolution, which also included a clause that a railway act should be adopted, regulating rates, charh^rs. etc., was moved by W. C. Simmons, seconded by Wm.Oliver and unanimously carried. It was pointed out by these gentlemen and Dr. Galbraith, M. Young and John Brodie 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 straiglit. They did not want a repetition of the C. P. R.'s conduct in passing by tlie towns of Maclcod and Piucher Creek, just because these places would not be held up by the corporation. The meeting was largely attend-etl and much interest was evinced in the proceedings, Wm. Oliver presided until the new officers liad been elected as follows: President, A. M. Grace; 1st vice president, John Brodie; 2nd vice presi-eent, E.N. Higinbotham; secretary, C. V. Bennett; treasurer. Brown Pipes; executive--Dr. Galbraith, John Bruce, M. Young, W. Oliver. M. Oleson, A. B. Stafford, Fred. Rooney A number of new members were elected. The necessity of a strict game law was emphasized. Attention was drawn to the reckless slaughter of de(!r by the Stoiiey Indians. It was suggested that the government should provide for a gun license and pay game guardiaiis for enforcing the law. Tl 0 retiring officers received a hearty vote of thanks before the meeting adjourned. STRUCK LIVE WIRES George Stafford's Narrow Escape from Deatii. Geo. Stafi'ord. a young man employed at the Electric Light Co.'s power house, and son of Wm. Stafford, met with a serious accident on Thursday night last. After eating his lunch in a room where live wires abound, he, thoughtlessly, leaned l)ack in the chair he was sitting upon, and in a Hash a live wire struc^k him between the shoulders. He moved qxiickly but the side of his face also came into contact with a wire Help came imme haven't had any \viliter here yet. The music could not liave been better, the Taber orchestra providing a programme that won heaps of praise from the dancers. The supper served at the Palace Cafe at midnight reflected credit on caterer Hart. The concert and social given by the choir of the Methodist church on Friday evening was a pleasant alfair. A select program was rendered including an histrumental piece by the Misses Tifhn and Keiver, vocal selections by Mrs. Button aud Mr. Cherry and readings by Mrs. Daniels. Miss Grace and Mr. Sage. Refreshments were servitl and aferward a series of couipefitions were carried torough. F'ive ladies vied with each other in a laughable attempt to drive six nails in bl6cks of wood. The prize fell to Miss Beryl Nimuious. A mon- amusing competition was the effort of six gentlemen to excel in hat triniining. Jas Benton won the pri/.e. The proceeds. $35, will go .o the pipiJ organ fund. luibf. Jardine, a resident of Lethbridge since Ibb."). died Friday morning after a prolonged illness.
