Wallace The Smoker's Headquarters WITH THE UKIMOt The, announcement which in the column? of Bel Win that the Edmonton baseball team would work out in Edmonton for a few before the opening of the West- ern Canada League was received with pleasure by the fans of the cap- ital. It.will give them a chance to become acquainted with the boys who will wear the Edmonton Colors j this year and to size up Dinny Me- i Guirc, who has received more adver- I tiding throughout the West this spring than any other manager in the league. The directors of the Selkirk Cen- tennial are dying to know how it was done. remarked one of them, "if we could advertise our ex- hibition for 1912 like that we would sure make it a success." "The secret of it." replied a wise old fan. "is that is there with the goods.

We know it, because we have had experience, A lot of finicky Ed- jxnontoc people did not Hke to have the Edmonton people did not like to have the-.Edmonton team called -Ea- qulmos. They thought it would give the outside world the idea thit this a frozen clime, whereas 'well, very salubrious. So they kick- ed against the Esquimos. But lEsquimos we are today and Esqui- mos we will likely and now we don't mind it, indeed rather like the name. The city and the people are big enough now that 1-hey can af- ford to disregard anv false construc- tion which- might be placed on name. will have -to go. Coal Miners is all right to ring the changes on. occasionally, 'biit it can't compare with Mormons. Besides, the Mormons are all right and they will" probably not object to having.a baseball team named after them.' Western. Canada Baseball League! opens May 12 and closes September 6th.
