Forres- ter, lecturer for prohibition, !iu or- giiuiKutfou was cft'ccled of workers for the temperance cause lor 'the Oardston constituency. Perhaps u hundred were pa-neat at the meeting which was held iu the assembly hall ul 8 o'clock. After u. brief summing up of the situation by Mr. Forrester, and the answering of queutioiifi, were proceeded willt. Tlie elecl-ioiiK resulted an followH, acclamation be- ing the cane iu every iitutauce I're- sitlunt, Martin Wooll, M. 1'. P.; vice- pros., 15. N. Marker secretary, .J. i.

Woolf oxprc-sscti his intention of working continuously for the cause untii the finish of the eampaitpi, aud thai be fully expected to nee from 80 to per cent, of the voters of .thlB constituency cast their ballots I for prohibition. He concluded by rc- futing several mis-statements which i had been made in paid advertisements which had been inserted m several newspapers by the liquor advocates. I Last evening the Latter Day Saints service in the large tabernacle was placed at the disposal of Mr, For- rester, who delivered a forceful lec- ture in favor ol his cause. j The heads of the three churches in Cardston were appointed executive members oK-olficio. They are Fres. E. J. Wood, of the Mormon church Rev. Canon Mowat, Anglican, and Rer. Cameron, Presbyterian. All go on record as being hearty supporters of prohibition. FAILURE OF TO WW1 AS FOOTL1GHT PERFORMER HE DOES NOT TENTION COMMAND AT- OF PEOPLE New can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't know the rest. Mr. Public is a patient personage, and will.swallow much before'complaining. When the complaint is entered, there's lio doubt about its sincerity. For a score of years massive Inilks of humanity, whose main claim to fame was a rather freakish physical construction and ability to mow down other giant hulks with their fists, have preyed upon the good nature and incjuisitiveness of the public by for- saking their usual Hno of activity, and posing as actors, or, rather, stage at- tractions. The public's inquisitiveness enabled thorn to get away with, it, and gather .in much coin under false pretences. Meant Stage Career "Victory in a heavyweight champion- ship bout meant merely the beginning of a stage career, and the desertion, of the fistic ranks for a lengthy per- iod. Why anyone, should have paid good money to see Jim Jeffries or Jim Corbett or Jack Johnson punch a bag and show some shadow boxing and make a ridiculous speech on the stage is beyond us, but they did. The ring is the place for the boxer to show his stage is not. There is no doubt about that. Having gently submitted to being bunkoed in the past the public has finally reformed. No Drawing Card Jess Willard Isn't the howling suc- cess on the stage that his predeces- sors were. Failure of the people to flock into theatres where Jess per- formed has forced the conqueror of Johnson to try a-new scheme to get that million-dollar- bank account, which his backers declared he would get on the stage following a victory over Johnson. Willard has been forced to join a wild-west show. Perhaps he will have greater success there. Perhaps ho will not. It would be better for his chosen profession if he were forced to abandon that work, too. When the fans reform completely and insist on paying money to cham- pions only when those champions box, then, and only then, will we have a better grade of heavyweight titie-nold- Match Him With Coffey In .fact, it seeing now that Willard" will soon be forced to accept a match and defend his crown. It will be a matter of only a short time, unless the signs are misleading, when he will fail to be an attraction, even with the wild west show. That will mean the arrangement of a bout with Jim Coffey or some other of the big fel- lows, and the return of interest in Willard. As a final word, it should, be roen- tloned :thaf Willard is not to blame for the system he ii pursuing. .He has expressed himaalf in favar of de- serting tlie 'stage and ongaglBg him- self for, a. bout. His manager. Tom _ to listen to ent. Kentkhmen Hold Annual Meeting The annual meeting of the Leth- bridge Kentish association was held last night in St. Mary's hall. Pros. E. Hagell occupied the chair, and a large number ol members were pres- t. The annual reports of the president and secretary-treasurer were read, the former reviewing the .work of the past year and proving by the many kindly acts of the members for those less fortunate, the justification of its existence. The financial report of the secretan'-treasurer was the best yet in the history of the asso- ciation, despite the lack of employ- ment among members, and the fact that several grants had been made for charitable purposes. The present actual membership is 66, and several new members were proposed last night. This, with a satisfactory bal- ance in the bank, makes prospects look rosy for the association. The election of officers resulted as follows Hon. Pres., E. Hagell Pre- S. T. I'etts 1st vice-pres., i C. Wakelin 2nd vice-pres., A. White- head sec.-treas.j F. T. Robins au- ditors, P. Miles, A. Knowlden ecutive, E. Rossiter, F. Smead, W. Hawkins, T. Turner, H. King, J. Hooker, sr.; social committee, S. Doe E. Dunk, J. Uuss, W. Knowl- den, C. Doe, F. Mies. It was decided to send cigarettes to the brethren now on the battle- fields and those in hospitals. A hearty vote of thanks was ac- corded the secretary-treasurer for his work since the formation of the as- sociation, and short speeches Here made by the officers elected, all bear- ing on "the good times enjoyed by being and the excellent prospects for the future. A splendid program of song and story was carried out after the close of the meeting, refreshments -were served as is usual, and the national anthem concluded one of the -best meetings yet held.
