We feel assured fbis season will be a banner one for Edmonton, with the emphasis on the "Banner." BY C. C. STEIN. SPORTING EDITOR WINNIPEG TRI&UNE Somehow or other one cannot Jirlp but compare the basi>ball fan to the robin. The latter is said t.,. be the real harbinger of spring, but its tree hearted song at this time of year is no brighter than the general deportment of the diamond enthusiast. And when the self same fan two or thrtr week^j bifoie the actu.'itonipd time breaks open the shell and commen^-es to show manifestations of that protract ed .some-wliat askaiii't a! the change. I'revi-oiish there had al\va\s been inlerna-ti(iiial (onipititior and such not only ;e!l in with Ihi' views of the ordinary fans, bi;t with the large number of .\mpricans in this city. As a result tlie Western Canada league was no! popular at first. The I'atis resentcil the idea of Winnipeg beini; associated with such smalt places as Kdroonlon. Moose -law.

This year the club is capitalized for $15,000 of which �10,000 has already been subscribed, so that the club is on a good financial footing. The directors believe they made a wise move in solecting Bill Carney to manage the team, and the confideace placed in him, has, they consider, been amply repaid. Carney has got together a very fast, hatd-ttittlBg bunch, ones which should be able to hold their own with the other cluba around the rircirit. Taking the dope from the exhibition games with Seattle and Tacoma ol the Nonbweatern league, it can be seen that the Calgary manager .has a good bunch. It is true that Carney lost each gaane with Seattle, hut only by one run, the scores being 4-9 5-4 and 9-%. Errors and wild heaven lost the game every time. TW�. how-l^ne to cheer for. ever, can only be expected consideriBg it was tbe ftrst appearance of the team together. The interesting features ol the series was the fact that the Calgary team can whale the ball some. In Cy Ines, Carney, Killackley, Duggan and Snrfth, Carney has a bunch of hitters. Against tbe strong Seattle pitchers, oonaidered the cream of the Northwestern league, Calgary whaled out 28 safeties, including two home tuns, two three baggers, and six two baggers. While Seattle have a hard hitting bunch they only got 21 hits off tbe Calgary pitchers. It was the intention of the oirec-tors to play during the coming sea-sen at their new park, but this has noa' been found impossible, so will again have to use Victoria park. Tbe new park is situated about two miles out in a picturesque spot along the Bow river. \t present the car line does not run within half a mile of the new park, and the city has found it impossible to make the necessary extensions on account of having no material tt> build with. The present park is only nine blocks from the centre of the city, with a googht�vslgM Adolph Wolgaat, Cadtiiae, Mich., age tt. (OcrmaB.)
