It is doubtful if there is a more potent influence for the building up of a strong na- tional manhood than, good clean sport But the bane of sport is the crooked- ness that creeps in. To prevent this crookedness in their great national game the United National Base, ball Commission has decreed that the name of the man who was provr ed to have attempted to bribe the umpires at the national champion- ship gaine. last fall be sent in confi- dence to every major league owner with- instructions to bar him from their grounds. This is a step right direction but it would be better if it applied to all bribers at all games and if their, names were ordered to be published so that all sports could be on their guard against them. This is the law .and practice in England regarding those found in dishon- est practices in connection with horseracing. to be good, must be clean and there is no better cure for dishonesty in sport than the fullest publicity. of the wrong-doing and the punishment of the crooks by banishing them -from the places where the sport is carried on. CHEAP GUNS (Toronto Star) F. T. Congdon, the M. P. from thej_ Yukon, Ascribes himself as "an .un- repentant free -and believes that an impetus would be given to in his big- constituency if ma- chinery for the treatment of quartz were admitted free of duty." There is one article-of trade, how- ever, of which the Yukon, has an ov- er-supply. "I can buy a gun cheap- er at- home than you can in Toron- he said yesterday." The reason is that so many fellows came in to the Yukon with guns and revolvers, seemed to imagine that the EVANGELISTS Lethbridge is to be favored with" a visit from the" well-known -evangelists Messrs. Gale and Hatch. Reports have come from Calgary ...Edmonton and Regina regarding nature and success of their work. The church members and others of this city will see and hear for themselves and form their own opinions. Different peo- ple differ widely in their opinions of evangelists, their methods and the results of their work. But whatever differences there may be as to per- sons and methods there is little-dif- fe fences of opinion as to the neces- sity for a call of some kind to the higher life of the individual and the citizen. The movement among men of all ranks and stations of life to lead the life that calls out the best within them and. to persuade others to do so ia stronger today than it has been at any previous time in the his- tory of the world. Good men hon- estly differ as to methods of .attain- ing this end but there is no difference among men of any station, creed or nation as to the main object which is to make individuals, communities and nations better and stronger. OUR POINT OF VIEW The water wagon was still conspic- uous by ite absence yesterday.
