C'g that Stralhcona had defeatod Ijdmonton 'J-2 and 'that t'nljrary had a bunch of tooted stnr.'4, it looked like a sure thing for Calgary. Hut it was not so to be. On their own grounds, after making a runaway race of it for the firt't two rpiarlers, the lif)in�'teani fad. Playing with KdmciHon agains>t the Piiie Ulike Cricket *.:iub, A. O. Lucas formerl.v of Lethbridgc ba'lted i!l runs and at bowling took three wick-etc for 30 runs, and is credited with four iBui'don.s. lOilmonton won the lUSE OiV BALLS.

Not until the pitchers' jj, gpneialiy acknowledged, but as to there, you seo, how the �gambling element, is going to ge't in and ruin the ball game, unless some nnothod Ik taken to check this gambling in Western basehall circles. The entire' Wi->�t is given to betting, which Is not at all desirnbl/> and which is very objoctionablo. In the'meantime, the western Canada league would do well to absolutely prohibit any betting among players and Anc any oD'snders. Itasolmll mui^t be kept straight and if gambling continues. It will not be kept straight. The hitherto despi.'s��d Maclcod football team put a serious crimp in the amhitions c.i the Tabcr team, on Friday. Fresh from their great .>�tand against the Maple Ix^afs, the men of the east felt confident, of an easy victory, hut Macleod proved stronger, at home than abroail and took the measure of rhe \'lsitors Ixy 3-O. The gam� was play�l in a heavy rain which prei:luay, to pla.v the football team of the Hocky town. Kmb�>Meried wHK their success ag -ainst Tal)er, the Macleod boys miny until they have a .strike or two on the Ijotsmen, will thoit! lie fewer games lost through loose pitching." This was the oi�lflion givi?n by J�s. McAlecr, loader of the St. Ixnils Browns, tailenders of the American league, as expros.sed in an interview recently.
