PEG HOCKEY TEAM DISPLAY FORM IN DETRO ed with an aspersion against .Mr. Mitchell, which was completely refuted l>y the minister. Hon. Chas. Stewart men. However, the sheepmen are not content to let tlie matter drop there and appointed Messrs. Colpman, ilc-ninger.

'i"ho matter of the embargo on wool lias not been discussed fully as yet. However, it is important if the growers arc to have the benefit of foreign competition in selling their wool clip. There Is an embargo on wool out of Hon. Charles Stewart, who rose at | Canada to the United States, but i:. Detroit. Mich., March lo.-By the decisive score of 3 to U. the Monarchs of Winnipeg humbled the hitherto invincible Detroit arena seven here to-niglil. The appearance' of the westerners was. tlie signal for the largest turn-out of spectators seen in this city for years. )-"or the first time in the history of the game here the fans got a glimpse of what is real championship form. 'i'he Monarclis skated rings around the Detroiters, and right there is the explanation of the victory, which might liave been by as many as half a dozen goals had the western speed merchants cared to extend tUemsolves. The dizzy pace of the Monarclis in the first period acted as a soporific, which apparently lasted throughout the game. As far as the teams of Canada which have appeared here are concerned, the Winnipeg lot are in a class by themselves. Picking Winner in American League KABANKOFF OUTPOINTS COULON St. Louis, Mo., March 15.-Harry Kabankoff, of St. Louis outpointed Kd-dio Coulon of New Orleans, and won the referee's decision in an eight-round bout here tonight, Tito raoii weighed in at IIG poiiuds.' ASSEMBLYMAN FAILED TO PREVENT BIG BOUT u.iO. continued the debate with eulogistic reference to the members who had enlisted. He gave a review of tlie.work of tlie public works department. Last year wis the most strenuous of all and he regretted that there i were many things tliey were unable lo do but so far as revenue permitted, he thought the work performed would compared favorably witli any government in Canada. Mr. Stewart gave the figures showing public buildins undertaken and said tlie building to be provided lor the mentally deficient when completed would cost over two hundred tiiousand. The minister next dealt with the co-operative' elevators. He is as confident as ever that the company is bound to succeed. The history up to this year did not show as elllclent management as lie would like to see. This year there was a permanent inspection with marked results. He was ^ot satisfied with tlie cost of constructing in l!)i;!""and but there was absolutely no fault with tlie lOlo program. He said this is justice to the management, but did not intend to relax vigilance in seeing that the work was kept up to standard. He giive some figures not credited In the inspector's report, wliieh reduced the excessive expenditure from $li;6,000 to ?8(i,000. He announced tliat a deputation would interview tho committee of agriculture tomorrow in reference to guaranteeing tile bank account. Albany X.Y., Marcli 15.-Tho attempt ot Assemblyman Martin G.

McCue then arose to a quostiou ot personal privilege, and assullol a sjiovtlng writer on a New York newspaper, who had questioned his motives. He repeated his charge of last week that tlio Willnrd-Moran contest would not be an honest one. S. buyers may buy here under a 11 cense from Ottawa and slili) their wool to the other side. There Is 110 telling, however, when tliese licenses may be cancelled, and the embargo enforced, with the result tliat U. S. liiiyers are afraid to take a chance in this market, 'i'he asBoclation, however, will likely forward a resoiutioii to Ottawa asking the government to Slate definitely what is the Intention in this regard, asking also that tho U.

The lambing season has already started with the sheep raisers of the south, although the season proper will not be on till next month. R. C. Harvey of Raymond has bad one band of early lambs running'about for two weeks past, while other sheepmen report that the new crop is appearing. Sheep bands are in good condition, having recovered from the cold wea-lier, and the owners are looking forward to a big lamb crop and wool clip. .Again in V,i]'i the commiasionerK using the ]!I14 H|)eii(llngH as a guide, cut down the estimates nearly onethlid and Willi the assistance of a citizens' committee again got estimates down to whiii WHS ((msidered the lowest point ((iiisistenl with cfiiciency. Duiiiig this year tlie commissioners followed the same plan of keeping all expenditures carefully analysed month by mouth; keeping down expenses wherever the analysis made it seem possible. The most rigid economy enabled tlie commissioners to come out with sixty-two thousand surplus, pie reason for tho above explanation Is that lliese savings are in uncollected taxes antl amount to one liuudrcd and forty thousand dollars, ot which it is conliilcntly expected that at least 75 p(!r cent will be paid into tlie city's exchequer either voluntarily or through a tax sale, while the oilier 25 ptjr cent will ho more or less of an iiHscl ill the hands ot the city in tho shape of unredeemed property. A tillralion plant will cost roughly about one hundred thousand dollars. Commissioner Grace thinks that a gravity system of water works witli filtration beds, etc., all complete would cost approximately five hundred thou sand dollars cash. If It were decided to put a filtration plant alongside of tho present power plant at an apjiroximate cost of one hundred thousand dollars the may or feels quite certain lie could mortgage tho unpaid taxes by treasury bills to meet the cost so that the work could be started shortly. If it is the will of the people. It it were desirable to seriously con sider the gravity system (the commiS' slonors are all agreed that on account ot tlie cost of pumping at tho pi'esent plant and Ijecause the gravity system has to come eveiilualiy) the two bun (Ired thousand dollars ot bonds mentioned above and the one hundred and � tony thousand also mentioned aliovo, would repre.sent about By Bill Donovan Tho addition of Home Run Baker lias put the HighlBUdors in a gvont s|)ot, so far ns winning tho Ainorlcan League pennant is concerned.
