While the dt�trict - bonspiel has already'heen held at Fernlc, stilt the curlers couUl not overlook such grand curling weather and it will provide a few days' sport (or those who ^ere unable to take in the Crows Xest spiel. There are four open competltlojia, the Brewery, the > BIHson, the Summit Llmo Works and a GonsoUaatfon with, tlie possibility of a i^uble rink competition (or the Cadillac Chal^nge which is open to all rinks In Southern Alberta. ' . ) The committee in charge ftt the spiel wilt ba L. W. Clarke, J. S. Kirk-ham, Duuc Du((, Huglf Boyd and Dr. Leech. \ . Play for'Wrl9ht Shield . What wU^bc a young bonspiel in itselC will be started tat the curling rliik about B^bruary �th. This will be an open rink knockout competition for the Wright ghiold,- omblanmtlcal of the city championship. Th& "Wright Shield is one of the (Inest trophios ever put up. in the history ot the local club, and was donated "by 11. A. Wright to be played for each year for ten yearif and to.boeome the property of the rink winning It ofteneat in that time. Hach rink will be as strong ne can be got together as the curlers are all anxious to be the first to get a Htlie engraving done (or themselves. Thistehould sob about tv^elve rinks drawn. ^ Skips will make their antrles at once to t). W. Clarke. / V '  r For the Colts another competition wlU be played off at the same time.

This will also prove a boomerang' to the majors, as the latter will not be able ta�end their surplus to th^ aseootation, as taas beeii the case in the ^unt. - It is possible that the International league will not start the-season.

Ba.seball circles in. this city nne rife with talk, and a boycott Of the Athletics seems imminent. Any semblance of prestige the Athletics may have- enjoyed hero has dLsappenred, and It Is doubtful whether a corporal's guard will attend ^lic games at Shibe park during the coming .season. Even the few tans who have stuck to the Athletics through th?ir trials and tribulations while Mack has been breaking down his once famous baseball maohlhc have turned against the club,/and there Is little likelihood of the club's receiving any support unless Mack performs a miracle and makes a winner ot the mediocre material he appears to have at hU command. 3uat wliat players will com6 to Philadelphia In exchange (or Mclnnls has not been announced. It is said AfacJc has not yet made up his mind. It-is unofficially reported that thcreasou for trading Mclnnis was salary d!ff�;r-' ences between the player and the club. It is understood Mack wanted to'', cut Mclnnls' salary and that Stuffy refused to agree to proposal. Mack hB3 finally succeeded In writing another chapter to "The Last ot the Mohegans." Mclnnls was the last member ot the tamoifs Athletics who at one time had a corner on the baseball championship market. , Mctmiis'jolned the Athletics in 1909 and soon succeeded Han-y DaTia as regular first baseman.
