General H.. the greatest rac- ing stallion in America, was in the city, having just arrved from Calgary where he has been wintering, and is on his way to New York from which point he will be shipped to Russia where he will be made a welcome ad- dition to Czar Nicholas' racing stables. He was shipped to Lethbridge over the C. P. R. in a special freight car but from Lethbridge he will be sent to New York by express. The C. P. R. refused to take the risk of handling him in this way. so arrangements are being made with the A. R. I. au- thorities to deliver him to the Great Northern and he be shipped over this line. The price supposed to have been paid to Parslow. of Calgary, the own- er of General JH., is a staggering one to the ordinary layman. Parish, of i Cleveland bought the horse from Parslow for the sum of S45.000, the deal having been brought to a quite recently. B.ut this does not begin to compare with the price Czar Nicholas will hand over for the stal- lion. It is understood on good au- thority that the -Russian Emperor will pay Parish for General H. laid down in his stables in St. Petersburg. General H. is a standard bred horse, and was raised in Lexington Kentucky. I He was brought to this country bv I Sam Parslow. of Calgary, but it" is to the great training he received at rhe i hand? of his trainer, that thy of horse flesh to Alberta as the home of some of the best horses ever pro- duced in America. MAGRATH GOSSIP Magrath. May? interest is being manifested in the coming bout between Frank Francis and Jack El- lison for tbe middleweight champion- ship of Alberta. The match is now an assurity, the necessary deposit having been made and the agreement signed, and will take place in the Electric Theatre here next Friday ev- ening. Both men are reported as .be- ing in fine condition for the match, and a hard struggle may be expected. Kllison has claimed the provincial championship now for the past three years, but some are inclined to doubt his powers when be is pitted ag- ainst Francis. Early this spring they met before a local audience and Fran- cis gave Ellison a difficult tussle, al- though he was not in proper shape for the ring. The coming hour is for a hundred dollar side bet and gate re- ceipts. Ringside seats are selling fo ?l.OO, and already a considerable num ber have been disposed of. orse owes his reputation. Last year BASEBALL TOMORROW Arlvices from Chicago intimate that there is a deal on between the New orks and the dibs'for jf Pitchers Reuihach" and Ames. It is iclieved thai a change of base would benefit both men, as they are now very much in the rut. Ames has been very unsteady, although considered by many experts to have the most wonderful curves of any pitcher in i the business. Reulbach is a big, hus- ky feilovv, rtftii going right is a very good twirler. There will .be a keen con- test in the City Baseball Lea- gue tomorrow evening when the, Y. 31. C. A. and Maroons come together. The two nines are about as squarely match- ed in strength as could be could be wished. .The Y. M. C. A. have a win to their cred- it, while the Maroons have failed to carry home the ba- con as yet. Tomorrow even- ing they will make a terrible bid for the honors. The race track is the scene of grea activity these days, and some fast driving and running -is in evidence Horsemen are being attracted from all over the province to the Agricul- tural Society's track, as it is one of the best to be found anywhere in the country. Among the number in train- ing is the famous Pathfinder, the win- ner in many fast races throughout the -West last season. 1 Next Friday Taber will- meet the local team in the first game; of the, season in the Southern Aiberta: Lea-. gu.e. The local aggregation. under the able management of Sam Mercer; is out on the field evening, and are getting into excellent shape the opening game. It is expect- ed that some rare playing -will be seen on both sides. evening the Taber team will be tne guests of the local club, and their entertain- ment will be well attended to. r OVERSEASVfVS WEST.MIN-. ___ __j The Overseas and VTest- minsters piny at the Athletic park this evening.

BATHS New York, June English and American polo teams motored down- to Meadow-brook today, hoping the weather would permit the first match for the international polo cup to be played this afternoon without further delay. Early conditions look- ed promising. A hard night's rain tivat left pools of water'all over the polo field ceased just before dawn, and at breakfast time the bright sun and a dry'northwester were at work drying up the turf. The prospect of playing on a sodden field instead of a hard aiid fast one wa.s regarded by many mitigating against the long hitting and hard running Americans and yesterday's odds of 5 to 1 on the match dropped today to 4 to 1 and i even three to one.
