AU'-en- the running and harness filled, and judging from tries for have been the' correspondence from horsemen in Alberta, the North Western States and British Columbia, there is every reason to believe that the meeting on the 24th-and 25th of May will be one of the most successful mtjetings ever held in Western Canada. The Lethbridge ball team left for Hedicirie Hal on the early train this morning. They are scheduled to open up a four-game series there this afternoon. The merchants of the have unanimously agreed to close up their places of'business for i the afternoon, and the whole town will likely turn out en masse if the j weather is fair, for the gas town is red hot for baseball. The weather has been better at Medicine Hat than here, and the likelihood of rain preventing the full series of games being played is not anticipated, and the grounds there being of sand, the chances of games being prevented through wet grounds are reduced to a minimum. They dry very quickly and are fit to play on after any amount of soaking. What are Lethbridge's chances of winning today Well, no one seems to give any reasonable theory just why the Lethbridge nine should trim the Hat today, but nevertheless all fans alike possess an indescribable feeling which surely spells defeat for to!

The JLethbridge boys may -be excus- ed- for some of their misplays in Fri- day's game, having had but little practice .in comparison to their riv- als. The team-has experienced noth- ing but -cool and clammy weather since organizing. To the "practiced eye of the -fan it'was apparent at first glance that the Lethbridge bunch were not able to play the calibre of ball that as in them, be- cause of mere want of practice to- gether.

THEY CONDUCT THEMSELVES LIKE GENTLEMEN When Jack Corrigan was engaged to manage the Lethbridge ball team he was .instructed -by the magnates Lo procure players who knew how to conduct themselves with propriety; on and off the field. He was told that they were the only kind of play- ers that Lethbridge people cared have representing this city. Jack, in "It has al- ways been my. policy ,to procure gen- tlemanly players ami I would not tolerate rowdyism and habits for a moment." And Manager Corrigan has certain- ly a team of ball players wno know how to conduct themselves. Although only a short time here the impres- sion they have made upon people who have met them -has been of the best, and it is hoped that they will continue to rise-in the estimation of the Lethbridge public -as they get better acquainted, not so much by their superior ball playing us their gentlemanly conduct.

The Calgary team -placed the claim before Secretary. Farrell, of the Na- jtional. Baseball Association, who. in- structed the team on. Saturday "that .jJBarnsteady belonged to Calgary. He stated that he had instructed Medi- cine Hat i to that .effect, and .that team was warned not to play him. Jini Jeffries has said that he will fight Jack Johnson. Jack Johnson says he is tickled to death, over the news. The fight at best is ten months off, as JefT demands that much time. But on the strength of the fight ten months away, Johnson has called off his match with Stanley Ketchel. -He says maybe be'] 1 fight Jack O'Brien. He says he docs, not expect to fight Langford, Probably Mr. Johnson knows what be- intends to do. No- body else can figure out. The coun- try is getting tired of his buncombe. Perhaps he is no worse than other fighters, so far as talk goes. ..But he is getting mighty monotonous.
