There has been a great demand for players in Alberta this year, fully a dozen having been secured from Spokane and vicinity. Manager Nick Williams said last night that Barney Kerns, who played third for the Indians for several weeks, and is now managing the Vulcan (Alberta) club, had wired/ for a pitcher and two outfielders. Nick will attempt to' secure George Clink for tho pitching Job. Jifo wonder Vulcan beat Carmangay last Wednesday night 6 to 4. No wonder Carmangay Invaded Groat Falls for tho best they had in the way of ball players. The millionaire wheat towns of the Aldersyde llpe are going strong. Lethbridge invades Carmangay Wednesday with the best amateur timber that can be gotten together, and hope to tuck a pro. scalp in their belts before they return, ASSOCIATION Saturday Games.

Ottawa, July 26.-In the senate today the military service measure was received from the common's and given first reading. On the motion of Sir James Lougheed, the second read-ins iwaa fixed (or Tuesday next. GEORGE AND JOSH MOORE DRAFTED. Fans will remember George and Josh Moore, both of whom used to play with Lethbridge ball team in the palmy days after the pro. team blew up. They are brothers of Bill Moore, the notorious Barons bowler. Word has been received by friends in the city that they have both been drawn for the first draft in the United States. Both are in Montana and will go with the Montana draft. George used to be about the smoothest fielding third-baseman that ever played locally, while JobIi was a heady pitcher and also played second to a'nlc�ty when occasion demanded. '"' Just when the tans get all set tor a good game, Just when their hopes have been raised by two good games in succession, Coaldale comes along and spills the beans by beating the homebrews 15 to 13 in the weirdest game of the season. It wasn't a case of too mucli Coaldale. Lund was in the box and we had his number right from the start. Altogether Lethbridge collectod 18.hits.tor 26 bases, chough to win four games, But it was a case oE not enough Lethbridge. Our infield played like a sieve. Eight errors are chalked up against them. At that the scorer was generous. It might just as well have been 12. The fans are getting about~fed up on bargain games like Saturday night's affair, and the team management will have to take draBtic action unless it wants to see the crowd dwindling away ting the best gates in the history of the burg-better by a long shot than we used to get for pro. ball. We ought to have a team that would go out and play the game. Instead of that, wo have a sort of patchwork affair. It's a long time since the same infield lineup has presented itself to the fans two games in succession. I The natural result is fiasco games like that of Saturday night, which was won with seven runs in the first frame and then just thrown away. What's the matter with the locals, anyway? Cosgriff wasn't in the lineup though he was in the city. The two Gillis boys were playing with the Coaldale team, and they played the whole game.- Joe took 7 chances and Vic 12 without an error. Why were these three players not on the Lethbridge team Saturday night? If there's a reason, the executive had better hold a war council and see who is to blame. Better no baseball at all than ragged exhibitions like Saturday's. v \ With Cosgriff off, Isom shitted over to short. He wasn't in shape as a result of patches of epidermis torn off in sliding in the Warner game. He was out of his element. Things went a little better when Livingston shifted to short, Isom going to first base. Evans had to be brought in from right to fill in at third, while Cherry held down second. Evans and Cherry had nothing to he proud of in their fielding, but oh boy! the way they slammed the pill. A single, a doublo and a,triple each.  There Is no use going into a post mortem as to how we lost the game. Poor fielding did it, while the Coaldale infield, especially the portion that should be playing with Lethbridge, played like demonB. The Gillis boys figured in three double plays that cut enough of our men down on the paths to boat us. . Snow pitched only fair ball. Rut-ledge was on the bench and went in for the last innings, easily disposing of the side in his cool, masterly manner. Noble relieved Lund in the 8th. Dunsworth got his usual three-base clout at his expense, scoring on Schweitzer's single. The box score will tell the rest of the story.

Considerable interest Is being shown by the boxing bugs here, who are anxious to look over the western wonder who was good enough to stop Johnny O'Leary in two different bouts. It is most likely that the bout will be staged in the open air. RECORD YEAR ON ' ONTARIO TRACKS Chicago, July 28.-Ty Cobb has a 32-point lead in the race for American league batting honors.

Tho government will collect about 150 per cent, more in amusement tax from race course admissions this year than in 1916. This 1b due to the increase of the tax from 10c to 25c and the larger attendance at races. Although racing ends on August 1 and there will be no fall meets in consequence, the government will thi. year collect over 1100,000 from tl race courses alone in amusement tax. It is stated that the firm of official accountants will not have their report completed before September.
