Miss Cameron, however, will not be released until after Johnson has been tried for a violation of the Manu White Slave Act. It is feared that should the girl be released, she might again fall into the hands of the prize fighter. STRENGTHEN GIANTS FOR NEXT SEASON That McGraw will strengthen the Giants before next season is it cer tafnty. He has never been a stand potter, and with the Pirates n whole lot more formidable than their per- centage in last season's race would indicate, McGraw realizes that he will have to improve his club to be in front at the finish. With Meyers, Wil- son and Hartley for catchers and a pitching array headed by Mathevrson, Mnniuard, Tesreau and the much- tooted Demaree, with four or five others to help out, he is all right in ihe battery department, although doubtless another good right-hander would be welcomed. Merkle at first and Fletcher at shortstop cannot be counted absolute because he is a bit lacking up to top and always was, and Fletcher because of his inherent weakness with the willow. Red Murray In the outfield looks sure; but Snodgrass and Dei-ore will have to fight for their places. McGraw turned his team upside down after beating the Athletics in the world's series of 1905, and he will be busy along much the same lines the coming winter. Trouble Getting.

Th Patronage of the skaters was excel lent two years ago, when the rin] was located at the ball park, but th' patronage at the hockey matches was null and The spectators were too exposed to the wintry blasts both in going to the games, and when they got there to view them. 0 course, the street cars may. now make a difference, and the people of Leth bridge may have leaning toward the game, and all that, but th, betting on paying crowds attending hockey matches at the ball park is ex- tremely questionable. It may be said that the hockey games two years ago were not 'worth soiiig to see. That may be true, but LEIhbridge boasted oTa city league at that tiino that will take some bcat- ng for rivalry among the teams, and here were six of them.
