London, March 15.-Sir Thomas Lip-toh will reply through the Royal Ulster Yacht club next week, to the rejection of his challenge for the American Cup. The full text of the New York Yacht club's answer has just reached him by cable. Sir Thomas today expressed some surprise at the New York yachtsmen in comparing his challenge in 1907 with the present one. The former challenge, he said, was mkde under the' universal rule, which would produce a boat cai> able of racing everywhere after the Ainerican cup race, while the boat which would have been built had the latest challenge been accepted, would have been a freak, to be thrown on the, scrap .iieap after the race. No decision has yet been reached by Sir Thomas as to whether challenge will be, modified.,' TABER'S KOTED.

If Ihcre is one mtlmdual in Taber more proud than the rest, of these facts, it is Charlie Ramsay, who has been the^ official trainer of the baseball and / hockey-team for the last three years.

In the Eskimos we see a team of e:^eme second-raterB, riepresentlng themselves as Alberta's beBt,'who certainlij^ had no license to challeinge for the oup from the stand-point of ability and Jjfere onljr abW to gala right-of-way by the cheapest kind of methods. The :^klmo8 are playlilg in Winnipeg tonight as the foremost team in Alberta, aft^r being vanquished by the Taber "Chefs" but by the, grace of unsustained and, trivial charges the "Chefs" were rubbed off the slate by the men who rule', in Alberta amateur hockey and their coveted opportunity to battle for tl^ Allan cup nulUfled, also their status as amateurs. >,. * What happened to lead up to this dtftmal situajtlon of affairs may be summed MP In a nutshell: . "-{i"  The champions of three-sections of the province were ordered to play off for the Alberta cbampions!hip. The Edmonton Eskimos won in the north, Calgary Shermans In the centre, Taber '.'Chefs" In the routh. The Eskimos and the "Chefs" played oH their games and the northern team came out a bad second best, the score running,6 to 3. Then It behooved Taber and the Sherman's to meet, iii ''uie finals,' twp games being arrange^. iThe game never came off, for at the eleventh hour the "Chela" sprung a bombshell b,^ charging a menjber of the Calgary team with professionalism. Of course, they are all professionals, but this was a chance to make a killing and the Taber-Ites went after it The Calgary team was caught" with the goods and the Taber team was implicated and they were both thrown out of the provincial league, the Sheriiians just for a while, the "Chefs" perhaps forever, the latter long enough at a'riy rate to queer them being in the rimning for the Allan cup. The Shermans fared fared differently. They were forgiven by some mysterious cute manipulation of the charges brought against them and were asked if they would like to start all over again and play off with the Eskimos for the championship, but Manager Harry Turner ,of the Shermans, didn't have the nerve apparently to be connected With such a raw affair, or possibly he failed to-see but little business in.sights for the public were disgusted, and the stipend of the players would be cutting in to no advantage-^anyway, they disbanded without delay and the Eskimos were automatically champions. of the province, not because they have the best team in the province, noit because they have no professional-tainted amateurs within their ranis, but because they have never been caughit with the goods on them, because the Calgary Shermans quit, and because the "Chefs" come from a small city with a small influence with powers that guidja amateur athletics In the province. In the south,-here, we don't wish.ithe Eskimos any hard luck by the way of railroad accidents or anything of the like, but we unanimously and sincerely hope that'the Allan cup holders slaughter them to the Kings' taste, when they meetithe Bdmontonian-false alarms tonight.
