It was a case, therefore, taking speedy action to proven! a calamity. A meeting was held | at the city hall on Saturday morniug, | SCOTLAND TOOK ENGLISHMEN INTO CAMP SATURDAY International Match Goes To Scottics For First Time 3-0 -Great Crowd on Deck SCOTLAND 3, ENGLAND 0. Scotland took England's measur? in with the commissioners, Charles Pea-1 soccer at the Ball Park on Saturday cock and Tom Longworth, of the vet-1 evening for the first time In the city b orarta, present. The president ot the ;lbbrldge, I have vfivei Charles Peacock to make Sfiraiisementa tor return o� men to city mine." ; With the above -win *ny further actipn was not necessary in regard to the city mines. That the oity mine would not,be closed w^b the firm dfef�ft-minat!on" of 'the yetet^'ns and other citizens. In the' iliort space that intervened hctweeii the sending out of the order to cajl the city miners out and niidnlgfit, there was organized a committee of one hundred to get ready to wperato the city mine. The gas company had also been com-muiiicated with and arrangements' surprising as the Scotchmen were almost always on top in the league tabhf Of course, there were positions in England's team, which could have been improved upon, but great difficulty is experience*4n getting the men out, and there is nowhere near the amount of enthusiasm among the English footballers that there used to be. And not only is this noticeable on the Ueld, for it is just about as hard to stir up any interest among the fans. This is to be regretted, for' all will agree that the old rivalry between the thistle and the rose was the making of football in i Lethbridge, The Scotchmen earned their victory on Saturday, they were the better team but not. by throe goals. True, they took more advantage of their op These two players rrefjuontly drew forth applause from the grand stand for their remarkable shooting, as did the Scotch defense tor their saves. Westley and Coffey both tried with good shots, but half time arrived with Scotland leading by one to nil. The second half gave Scotland her chance to press home her victory, for with the help of the wind they kept England in her own half for the majority of the half. Jjinning scored i early, with a hard shot which carried � Walton Into the net with it. After 'some pretty work and good combination, Linning again .secured from Whyte and sent in No. 3 which left no doubt at to the result. Walton made some groat .saves and it seemed impossible th^t three could have got by him. Allan shot over the bar, and several others tried shots, but the scoring was finisbed, although the whole English brigade made rushes onto the Scotch defense. Jimmy Ourr retereed, and the game was a v^ry interesting one, and a far better one than the score would suggest. The attendance was good, but in no degree comparable with the crowds of previous internationals. The teams lined up as follows: Englartd Walton Nesbltt Walton Parsons Holberion Firth Wesley Cottey Mcintyre N. Gurr Hincks Thompson Allan Tennant Linning Robertson Mcllvena White- Hutton ] r Easton' -Anderson ' Dunlop Scotland come to for running � ga� pipe to' P'"-'"""'^^ were quick in press-the powerhouse it necessary. Feeling j >"S ^^^"^ England played was high and much indignation was i aroused in the city by the high-handed bard till the end and several times should have scored. Dunlop is.prob-, ably the man most responsible for Englaiid's inability to score, for he sure played a great game, and added to hi.s reputation of being the'City's best goalie. At the other end Walton, , who stepped into the breach at the Treasury notes to the amouut of; last minute is worthy of praise, and $2,000,000 will be issued.'by Calgary to i but for his saves the score would have, clear up all llabilltiog that sliould have � been greater. Baston and AiideriJon a press and lie'.', their oproneuts iii.ll'eir own half lor t)i? majority vS the first period. Time and time kgain. one could not see how a score couiO b.j missed, but when' the shots tlew stritight, Dunlop was always there, and many were the times that the shots went wide. The ball was behind for a great part of the half. After ten min-utej! of hard fighting, the boys in biue got away, and gave Nesbitt a great run up'the field, but with a smart h'f of work he took the ball ofi; the toes ot Linning and returned it to his toi-wards. Mcintyre had the ball and the fans shouted "shoot," but he was late,, and was robbed by Whyte, who pass-el to Allan, the latter sending oat to Robertson, who made a breakaway right up the field, and had nobody to beat but Walton, which he did with a Boot'. shOit which Walton could not fo\ich. Great work and a groat .snr-. prise to all. Bcotland were one up. ' This put new life into the game and England renewed the attack with force and twice tested Dunlop, but lie was Johnny on the spot, iillhough ho tttmh-[ led one vf'r.r dnngprously, but recover? ed, pulling tlio ball behind. Westley put in a good corner, but the blues, cletired fvnd the game was tra:n�jvred to ithe other end where'Nesbitt nlscT conceded a corner. Back came the ', rod and white brigade, and once more Mcintyre was in good shooting po�i-i tlon 6ut daili6d too long wlOi the ball und lost it. Scotland played well agaiiiat the wind, and seemed to bear .a charmed life, for tbrougli Gurr and Holberton many good shotu went iti. cine. Hat, leaving at 2.40 and arriving at the Hat at't o'clock. The day train from Medicine >Hat arrives here at 4.20 p.m. leaving for Calgary via Alder-syde at 4.35 p.m., arriving at Calgary at 9.40 p.m. The eastbound night train arrives at 2 a.m., leaving at 2.15 a.m. The west bound-arrives from Medicine Hat at 3.25 a.m. leaving at 3.45 a.m. The night train for Calgary via Aldersyde leaves at 2.40 a.m., arriving at Calgary at 7.50 a.m., while the night train from Calgary will arrive at 3.20 a.m. I ------- I In tlie matter of the arbitration board asked for by the city employees I the granting of the same, or otherwise, it appears, is entirely In the hands of the city comraiasioners. This is set forth in the following tfelegrani ne-ceived by the city clerk from P. A. Ackland. Deputy Minister of Labor. The telegram says 'AiJplication has been received from oRicials of Civic Employees federal Union, Local No. 70, requesting establishment by Min-I ister of Laljor ot board ot concilifition (and investigation as between your cor-j poration and vai;jfeU8 clRsses ot employees, members of union named, to deal with dispute as outlined. Minister has expressed his willingness to establish board immediately, providing consent of municipality is received. As you will bo aware where dispute arises  between a municipality and its employees the Minister does \ not claim jurisdiction under the Industrial Disputes Investigation Act save by mutual consent of parties concerned. Minister will be pleased to have word whether or not your council concurs with employees in having dispute dealt with by conciliation board. FOOTBALL M C. P. R. SUMMER sen! JUNE J No Great Changes Except in the Through Cardston-Calgary Service Tonight on the Duff Addition grounds the boys of iHeetwood and Central schools will be put through a course of training for soccer by those �well-known players, Billy Holberton and Johnny Easton. Also on the north side, Billy Hutton and Geo. Parsons "will put the boys through it at Adams Park. Parents, get out and see-the boys play. Tomorrow, at the ball park,' Xprth Lethbridge will meet the Vets, "rhls Is the ilrst fixture for these two teams, and it is likely to be a great game, coth teams are considered "the Iwt," and tomorrow night at tlie ball p%rk will see a game you should not miss. Players are re'quested to ibe on the ground at 6.45, to start at 7 sharp. CltUens, support the boys. They are piittlnf up a great class of ball. .Many municipalities have found It convenient to deal with a dispute in thi.^ way; in other cases municipalities have refused. Wire reply." In answer to the above the council wired their willingness to accept arbitration, naming as their representative on the board, Mr. E. 11. Wilson. This brought a wire from the deputy minister advising that Messrs. AVilson and Donald -McNabb, the representative named by the employees, should confer together to name a chairman. Failing naming the same within five days the minister will, appoint tho chairman. The city in their wire naming Mr. Wilson brought to the notice ot Mr. Ackland' that as their nominee had to leave for the Old Country on the 14tli of .lune, it was important that the board should be held as soon as possible before that date. To this the deputy minister stated that there wis no, reason why the board should not begin its Nsittings this week and that it, should not take more than three days to dispose of the matter in dispute. The arbitration board will consequently be held some time this week.
