Tom Donnelly of this city Knew of'its whereabouts, and after some dickering Is said to have obtained the licit at about the same figure. He nought it live years ago, s.ud prized it highly. He advised John L. that he Jiad the prize, and lately Sullivan evinced lively'interest In. the trophy and several months ago entered Into negotiations for its return. Donnolly listened to the. old-timer's pleading and after much correspondence ant. the personal trip here of a close friend of Sullivan's, who said John was will- ing to pay to regain possession. It was at this figure; it is said, that the belt changed hands, and was re- turned to tile-original owner. This belt, .supposed to he emblem- atic of the world's heavyweight box- ing championship, 'was presented to Sullivan over 30 years ago by the citi- zens of Boston, and the money 'o pay Jor it was obtained by public sub- scrip'tion, headed handsomely by some of the leadjng citizens of the Bay State metropolis.

Johnson yesterday: voiced his usual belligerence toward the independent cause. "The Federal said he, MB Blmjly carrying out the hlut'f It lias been making ever since it took the field. It boasted last spring that it had corralled 50 or 01) players. It got only a handful of men who were worth a cent to organized baseball. And you will find that It will be every bit as unsuccessful next season. "The Federal league is on its last concluded Ban. "It may start next season and. it may. not. Hut it has been a financial frost from start to finish, and will continue so as long as It tries to buck the two major lea- i sues. There Is no room for three ma- j jor circuits, ami nobody knows It bet- ter than the public. Tlie National and American leagues are well establish- ed and have the confidence of the pub- lic. Wherefore they will continue to receive due patronage." Bail Johnson was somewhat disap pointed with the sorry allowing of the Athletics against the, Boston Braves hut looked upon the matter Quite phil- osophically.

AT Y.M.C.A. Big Bowling League Commenced Last Night Th? iirst match in the Y.M.C.A. bowling league was played last night.

THE SCORES I Carhcrry I'' J-JJ Mason }lj Shannon 461 190 81 134 137 152 158 London, Oct. overnight] war summary is as follows: The Germans are attempting not only to advance along the <'oast of the North Sea to the French ports, tut have attacked the Allies at many points from the extreme north to the heights of the Meuse to the south of the battle front. In the north the Holgian army has held Us ground with remarkable ten- acity: while at bahasse, around Ar- rus, between Peronue and Albert: to the east of the Argonne ,aud along the Meuse the German offensive tactics have1 been repulsed. This is the sub-1 stance 'of the Frencli official report, j and in a measure it is in agreement with the German official report, which, while not attempting any de-; tailed description of the battle, de-j Clares that the German forces have met 'with strong opposition at .the Itlver Yser, where the fighting lias continued since Sunday, but that otherwise the situation rather favors the German arms, particularly in the j of Lille, at which point the French have been attacking for sev- j eral days witii desperation, and have been repulsed with heavy losses. j Thirty thousand Germans are re-, ported to have occupied the coast be- tween Ostend and Nieuport, and to have dug trenches along the dykes from Middlekirke to Westende, but later advices declare that they have been repulsed near the latter and that their guns are HOW near Os-1 tend, which to'wn they still occupy. The Russian commander-in-chief an-- nounces tersely that there is no change in the situation, although the Russians are in contact with the i enemy at various points in Galicia and east Prussia. With this the Ber- lin official bulletin is in agreement. A Rotterdam dispatch says that the German marines are leaving Antwerp to join the fleet, and that the ships at Kiel have been extensively provision-1 eel, pending activity of the German; Navy, which has been for the past two.j months at rest in Germany's well-pro-' teeted harbors.

England has been fretting .in the ace of a situation which so far has irecluded any general engagement with the German fleet. Thus the men- ion of British ships as actiye.l off the Belgian coast is hailed with lartfcular public satisfaction. All reports that the Allies had re- aken Ostend proved incorrect, .and not much faith is placed in the dis- patch saying they had occupied Jruges. If they have done so, it would mean that the German line has been pushed so far back as to be vir. :ually cut forces in the vicinity of Nieuport isolated. DEVORE NO.

REASON'S FOR USING BEER AT MEAL TIMES "ALBERTA'S PRIDE BEER" is a concentrated liquid food. Tea and Coffee are in no wise foods. In countries where beer is used as- a table bever- age, dyspepsia is practically unknown. So is stomach trouble in general. In Germany beer is more frequent- ly drank than at nieitl time. The prejudice against strong stimulants has in no wise impaired the value of "Alberta's Pride the most nutritious of'all liquid foods. This beer is absolutely pure. This is no idle clnira, but one that .we can'back up by prool. Come to our Brewery and we will show you. To those who value strong digestive organs we advise "Alberta's Pride Beer" and we recommend it to convalescents because it is a tonic. THE LETHBRIDGE BREWING MALTING COMPANY, Limited ft V ;
