At tho beginning of the season the all bunch-d their errors in one innings. Last week thev started to bunch tlv.-ir hits and won u-amt-'s hand ov-.-r fist. The News called Lethbridge for the first vis- ion of thf- k-itgue ai'u-r siting the j team play here. I HAT TRAVELS IN HARD LUCK Hat Xews) The Medicine Hat team while out on the league circuit has certainly been in hard luck as far as running into rain storms goes. At Leth- bridge. where the attendances prom- ised to be extra large, only One game was At Edmonton, with 3.OOO tickets sold in advance for the first day, not a single game could be played. The threatening weather mitigated against big crowds at Calgary. the team goes to Moose Jaw a game is won and a game is lost, and the whole city, is up on end to see who wins the de- ciding game. Again it rains. The very same thing- happened at Hegina. All this plays havoc with the finan- cial end of the baseball and even if the team has decent wea- ther and big crowds in Winnipeg the exchequer will still be very low. This fact taken into consideration along with the magnificent showing which has been made from home by the boys, should result in every effort being made to make the local series of games a record breaker in regard to attendance. A RUB FOR DYER In its account of Monday night's game at Winnipeg the Free Press says Several familiar faces are in- cluded in the Lethbridge line-up. "Chesty" Cox was given a warm welcome by the bleacherites and as usual commanded a lot of attention. He stung the ball har.'l, but failed to get it safe. Chesty, oM sport, is getting up in years, but he showed he was still in possession of his fac- ulties by repeating all the ancient g'ags in his own inimitable style. Joe Lynch is another ex-Maroon. He was utility man for the pennant winning Maroons back in 1903. He is back stopping for the Mormons. Jack Corrigan is one of the old stand-bys of Northern League base- b'all- Jack is manager and right fielder for the visitors. He grabbed two of their three hits. We were introduced to the lourth member of President Fleming's staff of umpires, a Mr. Dyer. He has a carefully groomed voice, and 3oo'--s a nice young fellow, hut he got away. with some absurd decisions last even-; ing. He seemed inclined to form a decision too quickly. A GRAVE FOR DYER (.Calgary Hera id) Down in Lethbridge they are dig- ging one of the coal shafts seven j niilvs deeper. They are going to drop j Umpire Dyer inio it the first time he visits the coal town. THOSE INVINCIBLE REDS The jRcd were again defeated by the North Ward Junior Terrors in a seven inning game. Bill Pitney handed out the goods from the X.W. box and held, the big fellows down well till the lust half of the seventh, whf-n darkness somewhat spoiled the game. The Xorth Wardites batted the Red's pitchers all o'-er, who seemed somewhat confused and wild. Score. North Ward Red Sox 16. BOY'S CLUB WON The Boys' f'luh defeated the North Ward Juniors on their own grounds j last night by a score of 21 to 14. line-up for the "winners was V. Redmond, ratrher F. Geyer, pitchor R.

O. F. WON The football match last I an interesting- one between the Maple Leai's and the Ancient Order of For- i esters, "the Foresters broke the hoodoo that has been on the blue sweaters and won the first match j that has been won by that uniform, this year. It has been v.-om by sev- j eral clubs, but each time the boys in blue have lost. The line-up of the teams was as follows A. 0 Eundal backs, .Hooker and Wellington half backs, Wilson, Turner Dupen forwards Hudd, Doe, Bartholomew, Wallace and Gouchee. MAPLE LEAFS Goal, White 'bucks, liar vie and Brown half backs Asquith, Stewart and Carr i'or- wards, English, Fairbrother, ilcKay, Fleming and Ranard. Referee, Hol- berton. Score .2 to 1 favor A.O-F. The play throughout, fluctuated from end to en-d, but the 'defence of the Ma.ple Leafs was weaker than the ;A.O.F. forwards, who played rather good combination at times. The whole team play of the A.O.F. was much improved over the previous efforts. While many of the Maple j Leafs made good individual plays, .still their team work was very weak. I Their defence stopped several hot shots resulting from corners but fail- ;ed to stop the two goals scored by I Bartholomew, while Fleming scored I the lucky shot for the Maples. These two teams are now tied for the wooden spoon, though the A.O. i F. now have a smouldering spark of ambition tuid hope yet to give the i leaders -a. hard chase. Lost night 1 they surprised the Maple Leafs, and j after a while may surprise the Cal- or the S.O.E., who have to cle- jfeat the MX. and A.O.F. before they can win the championship trophy. I Owing to the baseball games there j will be no schedule football games till July 6.
