Dr.: De Veber, the twenty-five mcmbera ot the provlnuial legislature Imv* given five doUara each towards the purchase o( a cup ,that shall repr reffent .the lacrosse championship of the province. It is understood that the total of one hundred and iwenty-flve dollars is already on hand for that purpose. A local cohimittce is now at work drafting a constitution for what will be known as as the Alberta Anieteur Lacrosse ' Association. When the draft is completed, it will be sub- the locals to the lacrosse clubs of 'Alburta towns and cities to send here to discuss the formation .of an association, ll is expected that Calgary, Edmunton, Ifedicine Hilt, Wctaski -win, Bed Voer. StrathcoD*, ^High Bivcr and other towns will send dutegates. All cluba in ^Alberti will be eligible to Join the iMiiue. i The proposed coilstlttttion 1 has stringent provisions'otalBst ! pro foasionalism and rough play, tss it is the object Of thd prbnwtirs to have clean gentlemanly, amateur la croBse.

The suggestion has been imade by a proBiineut business man of the city tkist instead of building an incline railway, that an effort should be. made to secure a tramway across the! Bew C'.P.R. bridge. This tntnt-way coi(ld bo operated by the city, by the C.P.R. or by a company.

Wages and living ex -penses Iiad gone up while the price of horses and cost of fodder had been unchanged. Moreover each succeeding year logs had to be taken a greater distance to the mills.
