Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 20, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta G ... ^y.^-y^.'jr:i.'^ IK IB HERALD HmmNG COh LTD. 6. D. AUSTIN, eiitor Hd Maugcr. W. JOmAN.

Lethbrid8� Leads in Fielding With ' Awrage of .945. Secretary Johnatun c4' the Western Canada Basaball League has published the batting and fieMing a^-erages (or the teams up to June 1. As might be expected, there have been very considierable changes since that .tiuie. In the batting, Xunzic, the sturdy little right fielder ct the Lethbridgc tcnm, is first of the regulars, with West of Medicine Hat second, and O'Neil of Calgary, third. The team averages is as follows: BATTING. ' Sfedicine Hat may be a city o( Al berta for twenty-four hours of the day in tn� opinion of its citizciis � who Btay at home. But to the por-�ea outaMe it is a city only half the time. At eight o'clock every night tlM C.P.R. telegraph office closes and ,! the 0�B City is cut off from the rest : of the world until eight o'clock in the morning. Tins condition of iif-faira is a hardship to the prcss'pur-ticularly. All press reports tor morn iag papers must be sent before eight o'clock. In this city, it is ianpos -nible to get the baseball reports until the next dify. LethbPidge has on all-nigiit service. So has Calgary, Red Deer aad Edmonton. Medicine Hat is a dccid-adlji city In most respacta but the C.P.W. allbWB it that priv -liege from aa outalde standpoint (or 'oaly half the time. The result is that BO busiaess over the wires van be done with the citiaena of the Hat by people outeido, and no news uf the city oaanaeh.tJie outside world. It. te up to the people of the Hat to ralM  protest against such treat aMnt by 4he C.P.R. : The Calgary phpers say that Hon. W. H. rCoahiag's remarks at the Konml School cornerstone laying n-dicate that the University site guus-tiOB to yet unsettled. The Red Deer papers say that John T. Moore. M. P.P. deelaras that the selection cf the sH� wiU be settled by the Lag-toiaturo next session.

He quotes e.xten -sively from the Herald of last week but gives credit to "Mr. Simmons organ." This is news to,the HeraW which 18 the organ of tjh individual hut voices the sentimeiits of the public.

Rogers is the boss catcher. taxpayers of Lethbridge in his sense-less and misleading attack on Mr. Siaaaons or in his evident endeavor to introduce party politics into the Board of Trade nwtters. Poor Calgary seems to hevc a hard time trying to he u host. The robee of cijtyhood do not seem to hang well mi their shoulders atid it seems hard to act the part. Prince Pushimi was received in state by tha R.Iir.W.M.I'. The Mayor and Council claim that they were left out alto -gether in the matter. Receptions lo Karls. Princes and all that ore evidently not in Calgary's line.

The city's pub> licity comnwtteo made a rccctnmcn  rtation. to tins Council on Monday night ill favor ot such a sy.stcm, but the report was referred Imck in order that a complete plan might be placed be(ore the Council. Now that the matter is definitely before the ('ouncil, the people should give it serious thought, a* doubtless there uie objections to the proposal. These objections are almost sotlrely ssnt iineotal aitfaougb the expense of get ting out a new plan for the city is to be considered. In the opinion o( the Herald the present is the most opportune time for the change. When the city gets larger the difficulty and sxpsBse of nuking the change that is bound to come sooner or later, will be much greater. This has been the experience of many cities, notably Chicago, which is at present proposing tp spend about a million dollars to make the change.. There will be many short streets thait will of necsatlty be named. These with the centre street awl the osatm avsaue will be sutneient to perpetuate the aiemory bfthosewfaose aanns are bsM moat dear by the dtiaena of Lethbridge.

In the 8th the visitors evened up. Each made a tally in the ninth. Calgary got a move on in the 10th and batted in two runs, while the locals were blanked inthcir turn, ileaving the score 9-7. The series between the leaders and the tail-enders was a revelation to all concerned. With the invincible Works on the slab, the Mad Hatters stacked up big against a supposed easy mark.

The lacrosse season for 1907 is open. In the first league game the local team bad a runaway win, the youngsters from the Oes City being trimmed to the tune of 9-O. The Medicine Hat boys showed commendable pluck in facing the fast twelve that wears the red and w^tite, as they had only three of the old team and the other nine were only junior The young fellows showed good stufi however and were always after a share of the game. Hon. Senator OeVcber faced the ball and blew the whistle after which Referee Mooi^ of Pincher Creek took charge. He had very little to do as the game was devoid of any rough -ness. In the first quarter it was avl-dent n^o wcuM win as in less than a minute Gow scored and inside ol five miinutes Hotoeon found the net. The quarter closed with the score 3 to 0. Ckow bavins got the best of Teel again. The second quarter was ditto except that 4 goals were scored, the last being the result of a brilliant ruo dcwn the ^Id tty Skeith Winkler did some fine stunts in the third, handling three or four of his opponents in ea.son inside homo OHvar Referee-T.
