Tho Bennett Shield competition Is .played under auspices of tho Alberta Association Football League, and Is open to clubs chosen by the various: lassociatlons affiliated yltn the Ttie Overseas'was, there1 fore the chosen club of the Lethbridge City rl'les of the Al- the matches the close of the ng- s Further... the rules of tiie 'Alberta League "say that "with-" In thre-a days after the deciding of it' shall he the duty of the secretary of that association to forward to the .secretary-treasurer of the League the name of the club such association pro- poses to enter for the Shield, along with a list of the bona-fide signatures of the players of such club who were properly registered prior to the last match 1ii which such club parlicipat- ed." Chas. .received-ft telegram asking him "if Patterson, "Whytc.

In passing let me emphasize the in- clusion of Patterson among the ranks of the outlaws, and the omission cf Parker and WlHetts. What does it matter if these men did play for another team this season, when they were all duly and properly registered to represent the Overseas in the Bennett Shield cmopetition, ac- cording to the registration rules of the Alberta League? In this come- and-go country it is quite possible for a football become -but a shad- ow of its former self in the interval which elapses between the "end of the 'Spring season" and the end of September, and the Overseas club were quits Justified in doing every- thing legitimate in order to have a good 'representation Jn the Shield gainep tho telegram published in the Herald hist night; saying that, "after consultation with president of provincial league deeldo -.ou must play Gallies- here, Saturday without Patterson, TVhyte and Ten- naht Thd telegram i igned by Ceo Tailor of the gue, so we must presume that Lea the championship of any -Taylor practically decided the pro- :est. and not "three neiUral persons ipnointed by the president" of the lea- The rules quoted are plain and con- cise. Let us see how they were fol- lowed out. In the first place, the end of the month of September, when the Bennett smeiri series started this I year, can hardly be called "the end of the spring and year it cannot be said that 'the Alberta League lived up to their own ruling. Had they done so, I venture to say the Shield would now be reposing in iLeth- bridge, for around about that time the Overseas club were able to beat any- thing.-in sight. But the Alberta Lea- gue had evidently to wait the pleas- ure of Calgary in this matter, and the latter part of September still found the Northern city in' the deciding struggles of a local league tourney. "Witli regard to the signing up of players, the local position is this: Be- fore tiie last game of the Lethbridse City League, the Overseas liad al- ready lost Hie services of some of their best players, and tenew they ivere going to lose others. That fact did not matter in tho local competi- tion, for -before they met the Sons of England in the final game, ?lie Over- seas had the championship tucked safely away. But ft did matter with regard to the Bennett Shield compe- tition, in Which, when the time came, they naturally wanted to make as good, a show as possible. TO that end they "signed on" Tennant, WlHetts and Parker. The local secre- tary is not sure abo'it Lmning, but is under the impression that the latter also duly registered. In vinw of these facts, therefore, and on a. read- ing of tho Alberta League rules, the players above named were properly registered, and entitled to represent the Lethbridge champions.

And why net bar Parker, TVillets and Linning? .Hay I venture a guess at the reason? Pat- terson was the best back on the when the teams met at Lethbridge: Whyto was good, and Tennant was bet ter.

Fielding Appears on Par In fielding there has not been much to choose between them except that "Yerkes is slightly cleaner in his work. Doyle is not the most finished fielder, 'but he makes up for much slovenly work by the desperate efforts he takes.

The Boston players say Yerkes has as much of this k'fiid of nerve ns any cue, but this is his first world's series and they smash up under the strain and nervous tension. In that.respect I would much rather have Even his critics admit he is are evenly matched, and that a seven- gamy series is not at all unlikely.
