Errors and wild heaves lost the same every time. This, how- ever, can only be expected considering it was first appearance of the team together. The interesting features' of the ser- ies was the fact that the Calgary team can whale the ball some. In Cy j Ines, .Carney, Killackley, Duggan and Smith, Carney has a bunch of hit- ters. Against the strong Seattle pitchers, considered the cream of the Northwestern league, Calgary whaled out 28 safeties, including'two home runs, two three baggers, and six two baggers. While Seattle have a hard hitting bunch they only got-2L hits off the Calgary pitchers. It was the intention of the direc- tors to play during the coming sea- son at their new park, but this h'as now been found impossible, so will again have to use Vicforia park.

At present the car line oes not run within half a mile o! he new park, and the city has found t impossible to make the necessary 'Xtensions on account of having no material to build with. The present park is only nine block rom the centre of the city, with good ear service. Copper 'Country League pennant four years ago.
