Puliord, big mogul Pres- ident of Winnipeg Baseball Club, is reported Lo have said the following in the concerning the Western Canada; Ball League: "I am looking forward to a great baseball season in The Western Canada League has now been firmly organized, and what is more to the point organized to stay. At the Begina -meeting oa Mpadayjiiight I was more than surprised at the en.- thuaiasra of eveiy delegate present. Had it been a gathering of major league officials they could not: have shown more interest in the proceed- ings. All of the western cities -ap- peared anxious for baseball, and with this spirit in evidence and everything running smoothly, I see no reason for the league being other than successful J am convinced that the Winnipeg- club is. jiow identified with best' league of its existence. As to the Winnipejf team I .the fans will be pleased, as every, effort will be di- rccted towards landing a. winner. Brandon, Regma, Moose" Jaw, Medicine Hat, Calgary, Leth- bridge and Edmonton. How does this strike you as a-compact baseball circuit, as viewing the former organ- izations with which Winnipeg has been identified? v .Appears somewhat different to the oesitring Winnipeg-Brandon-Dulutli- Pargp league.

It was spirited contest, but the Briton was master of the situation throughout. At one stage he had the Italian trailing along- three laps behind him, but Dorando, in the last mile, jumped into a terrtfflc sprint and' when the pistol shot signalized that Shrubb had fmished victorious; he had regained halt a lap: He. moved away from the plodding Italian so-fast that when he had cov- ered .the first mile .he had a lead of half a lap. The Briton didn't falter rather gained vard after on the Italian, until the end of the second mile saw him running as close behind Dorondo as possible.
