The real story, according to th Calgary News, is that on the night icUc-.viiig the- laliiijiia euxLiou in "West Elgin in which Donald iicSish was triumphantly elected for the last time to be the representative of that constituency, a number of politicians and others were on their way to Ot- tawa by train.

The Calgary Albertan says: .The se- lection of governors made by the Am- ateur Athletic Association is very wise. A. Buchanan, for some time was secretary of the Ontario Hockey Association, and did excellent work. Dr. Stanley has shown his devotion to athletics, and his value also as secretary to the lacrosse association. Mr. Darroch was chairman of the Ontario Hockey Association, and left a very line record behind him. He is strict, but fair and square. Hon. C. W. Cross is an ex'-ellent choice. In his younger days he was a very clever lacrosse and Rugby football player. Frank Walker of Fort Saskatche- wan is a most enthusiastic sport and all round good fellow. H. Ballantyne, the secretary of the Y. M. C. A., will make a good secre- ary. He is to a great extent re- ponsible for the good start made by he association.

When they got back to the Pullman it was generally agrerxl that-Preston's message had been sent although no one could remember the exact wording that had been given. In fact, the wording remained a mys- tery until it was discovered that Thin can Bole and others had been guilty of corrupt practices in the election and Donald McN'ish was unseated and driven from public life. Then the wording of the telegram was discover etl to be, "Hug the machine for and the most surprised man in Cana- da when he read the telegram was W. T. R. Pros-ton himself.

There vas a large crowd and e. good game was played. Mayor Henderson pitch- ed the first ball, which Umpire Gra- ham was forced to call "ball one." The Press team got a good lead in the early stages of the game and held it until the sixth, when the rail- way men evened up. During the next two innings it was an even struggle, darkness calling the game at the end of tho eighth. Excitement ran high and though errors were plentiful the crowd enjoyed the game as much as if it did the professionals of last; year. At that the play was very good for the opening game. In thi first innings Maveety walked tlouk and Kenny but they died on bas es as Barber went out Maveety to Ni- cholson, Bailey fouled out to Pulley and Culbcrtson flew out to Nicholson In their half the Press did things. Hinneher walked into the ball. Pulley r find (laughters ot the farmers, all of whom now declare that they will nev- er don the overalls.
