The other lour dead are boys and young men among Uie spectators. Five thousand were wit- nessing the finish of UIE race, when the daring rider took his fateful plunge. He was riding high on the bank of the track when the whole of his heavy machine swerved and struck tlie upper rail.

His hod) was shapeless from broken hones when it was picked up almost at the feet of his wife, seated among the men and boys in the bleachers. Some of the spectators were hurled high in the air and landc.d-.in the laps of those seated behind. A scene of panic among the spectators generally, followed the tragedy. The stadium where the accident oc- curred is in Vailsburg, a suburb of this city, where bicycle and mo; or cycle racing has been popular this year.

He saved a number of shots that 'R-nre Tor the fhigs. any one else but Clark in the West- minster nets the Vancouvcrs would have run ecore up into doable figures. He let four go through in the Th-st quarter, but after that the locals found it Impossible to pene- trate the Westminster citadel. No Rough Work A. pi-easing feature of the match was the absence of rough phvy. It proved to foe the cleanest match play- oti this season, only two penalties be- ing iiamlcd out, "Newsy" Lalondo and Johnny Howard engaging in a mix-up in the first quarter, that necessitated prompt action on the part of the ref- eree, Jim Kavanaugli. After that nothing occurred that approached rough play, and those who woro tak- ing their first look at the game would have thought that the players were life-long friends, and with no rough work the teams served up a b-attei brand of lacrosse- than has been wit- nessed for some time at Recreation Park, oven though the grounds' mid weather conditions were more suited to fishing than to lacrosse.
