Saturday, June 1, 1012 FOOTBALL Remarks on the "Slavordale" There wort! many happy tool.lmllcrs mid football fans 111 (he oily on Tues- day night, and ihoro we're likewise many unhappy. It has become nil- cipiH hlslory Hint on Unit night tliu prliie of Jiiiglaiid ITOS humbled by Ibo Ovcrscns football team lo the extent of three Koafe to two, and it did one Kociil to see tho laughing fates of -Hie red nnd white shlrted players us they danced off, tho Held, the victors In mi hour and a halt's football. And It Is good for Ullibrldgo football thin the same reunited as it did. Tiles- day's result brings th Oroiveu to the bead of Hie leimne tllblo nnd mnkes them it very serlonn factor In the ultimate decision of the iNo longer will It be a case of nip ami luck between Hie Sons of Eiiglnnil and Ibe Caledonians with the rest nowhere. And that is good for football. But It was perilously near lo being; another drawn same, In which con- tingency .ill Ilireo teams would have been eijiial.1 That it was not so, we have to thnnk a kindly fate and a sturdy Overseas defence. Having obtained three good goals in the first half, without a reply from their opponents, the Overseas were determined that Hie Sons should bo kept out" hi the second Half, when the Englishmen had the assistance of Ibe strong breeze TIiov ivcroi successful In so far that they prevented the Englishmen (retting oil c'liual terms, though their fortress was twice pierced by the S.0.0. sharp- shooters. On -the run of (be play It must be confessed that the Overseas deserved tlieir victory and even, under normal conditions I believe they would have won. The Sons did not exert themselves to any great extent In the first hah, evidently being under the Impression that any lead which the Overseas mlghv obtain with the assistance of Ibe wind would bo overcome in the second half, lint In this they were sadly mistaken, for with the wind against, them, every man on the Overseas 'line-tip ployed with a dash and n clb-or-die spirit, which usually brings victory, am! on this occasion it did. They were not content either, to simply act on Ibe defensive, hut look several excur- sions into IheY opponents' territory, and more than once came near scor- ing. IJJC!

Doors open 7 p.m. Prices the same, 1.6 Considering the conditions under which" the game played It would nardly be fair to enter Into a critical analysis of the play on either side. Jlut it must be said Hint the Overseas players seemed to have the better conception of tho game to play with tho wind blowing as it, and proof of tills is forthcoming the fact that not only did they obtain a substantial lead when they had the elements In their favor, but they held the Sons well in check when conditions were against them. It was of course, not to be ex- peeled that, they would prevent the Englishmen scoring, but they certainly did, by their all-round good judgment, keep the Sons from equalling their own performance in Hie first1 half, and thus won the match. .f. The Sons of Kngland had'rc-arranged their team somefchat. The pop- ular "Bob" Chiswick was the most notable absentee from the team, and, if .one must believe the rumors that are being spread around town, It is said that Chiswick will assist tho Sons again. If tills Is so, it will be a decided loss for the Englishmen, for not what one would class as n great player, was a .decidedly useful man on the field. Holberton was also an absentee from the line-up. though he was a spectator at the game, and hh presence was decidedly in evidence at half time by ills offer of "evens" on the Sons, despite their three goal handicap. "Hilly" is a popular favorite with the fans and I hope he has 'not forsaken the playing arena for the stand- indeed. the Sons can stijl use him to advantage. If one may judge from the display of some of their men on Tuesday night. "Bobbv" Fail-brother was also an absentee. The new men introduced were Dalzell at back, Firth going to the half hack line, and Beatwick, and Paunch in the forward's Hue. Of these throe, Best- wick impressed' me most favorably. Faiinch, of course, has. been out of the game for some time, and I will want to see him perform again before commenting on his play, but I do not think "Ted'' is an outside whig man. Had the Sons played him right .-ilong. I believe Paunch would, bv this time have been a clever little player, but 1 suppose, ill-health to blame for hie prolonged ah-seiice from tbe game. Dalzcll at back put in some good work and he. and F.irris no doubt make a useful pair. Many were inclined to blame Coles, the goal keeper, for his display in s ay this match, .but. I. think they do so unjustly. True, ho entirely misjudged the ilight of the ball from two of the shots which beat him, but did not every player on tbe field blunder from tlie same cause? Coles has won games tor the Englishmen before, and, if not. will dn so acalu. Piirlrpr was probably the mosl useful, man! on the side 'of, the.

Paris, is to revive Mozart's which Is to be given as nearly as possible as it was produced when first performed at Prague in 17ST -under the composer's personal direc- tion. In connection witli the perform- ance n hitherto unpublished letter written by Hichard Wagner to Felix .Alottl in 1882 has just been printed, and the New York 'Sun's Paris cor- respondent reproduces it. In it Wag- ner speaks of "Don Juan" and Mozart with admiration and praises French i composers in terms somewha-t unex- pected from such a quarter. The let- ter reads: May My Dear am told that you are going to produce "Don Jtian." am glad of (lint for your who understand "Tristan and Isolde" so well, i believe that you will under- stand better than any one in the world whatMove is. You have developed in my, "Tristan .and Isolde" ap much beauty and divine charm that I am only too proud t0 be able to entrust my works io you; The present leader of flic orchestra at the Opera wrii.es to me that lie has spoken to you of me and has dis-] cussed my works with Reyer, ivhon the French place ,in the first rank pi their musicians, Henceforth I ing tho minuet tills morning and I am entirely captivated by it. Look at Offenbach. lie can do what the di- vine .Mozart does. .My friend, in things like these the French hold the secret. There are very many things for which I have good will toward them. But this truth, which is as clear as noonday, must be recognized. Offenbach eouhl have been a .Mozart. I believe that Auber would have come n-aar it also. Restore the grand finale of the sec- ond act-. That is urgent and abso- lutely necessary. You me that you are at tho piano yourself for the fi-rst. Accompany the" recitatives, if you pl-oase, with the piano, the latter ones also. 1 know you to be a pa master, in that. With a hearty nan shake. RICHARD WAGNER much praise from the press and pub- lic lor their work. The performances given by the company are said to be Invested as a rule -with genuine musi- cal merit, the ensemble- and solo i work especially eliciting high .ni-aiso. I Each production is said to be i tionally well'staged and this should enhance the work of tbe company. On .Monday evening the organization will make its initial appearance here. s a py rom an ngs pont of view that his strenuous efforts to score did not meet with better success in this game. His ivonder.ru! overhead! shot into goal was the cleverest piece of ever seen on n Lethbridge football field, and if it failed of its'object to register a point for the that was only due to the agility of Smiraor, the Overseas' goalkeeper, who, on this evening was in first class torm. -F Sunnier is, in fact, a really good goalkeeper, and if he would only dis- pense with those "playing to the gallery" mannerisms of his, his perfor- mances would be eve--.! more appreciated than 'they are now. Home -Hid Pat- terson al back, had a fairly easy time in the first half, but things were more lhan -balanced in the second period. They came through Hie prde.il excel- lently, however, and kept the English forwards well iindencontrbl. Indeed, to these two, no little of Hie credit for the victory is due. The Overseas' half- bocks, loo, 'were in splendid form. Mullen's presence was, if anything, more in evidence than ever and he proved a thorn hi the side of the Sons. 'As one time- in the. match it was thought that the popular "Jock's" services were lost to his team. One of the Englishmen managed lo get his boot to the neigh- borhood of .Mullen's face, and down went tbe big fellow as if shot. A blow- ing of the whistle brought the players around "Jock" who, much surprised at the stoppage, nnd nibbing his eye, was on his feel in an instant. impression on the stand was that "you can't kill Jock" .Mullen. The general Cauldwell and Hnlkersoji are also deserving of a of praise for their Tvork. They, like every otheV man on the team, played to win, and played well too. "Freddie" Simm received a pretty bad kick -towards the end of the first half, which caused him to retire, though he resumed again after tho Interval, Binim in good form up to the time of his accident, and helped consider- ably in the attacks of the forward line. Joyce was -not comfortable playing in the does not suit, his style of play, but nevertheless managed pot in some pretty good -shots at goal. Blmbrldge, Thompson and Hren- nan all played well up to.for mand are entitled io smire in the credit com- ing ip the Overseas for iheir great win. I and shirts have started on a path which take them, pretty near, if not up to the championship of the league. Next Tuesday we have the Caledonians and the Sons ing hoiitllities again, and we may bo sure of seeing n strenuous contest. J nm glad the Intermediate League has at last got underway. If the players of (he various teams entered stick together it cannot help birt be a success, a-nd should do much fo boost the game in thla city. Overseas and Calliea is a first fixture In this league on June Thursday.

Between you and me, you are nof wrong. I must t-ell you how you- should con- ceive Don Juan, lie resembles my Tristan in liis .enthusiasm for love and in inspiration.

I must, confess that the French, today better than ever, to make them- s-elves worthy oC such a fine opera of love. Take.great care of, the minuet, the quadrille and the German dance which composed for the act j of the ball, which 1 am sure will be' part of your production.
