A complete constitution and set of rules was adopted ,and offlceis elected for the first season. The Alberta Big Four is the name by which the organization will be gen- erally known, hut In the constitution adopted tire organisation has been called the "Alberta rtngby Football and provision lias been made for senior, intermediate and junior divisions. More properly, the name "Big Four" is to apply to the senior division, .the membership in this division .being limited to four 5 j senior teams. The teams which aie lo compose the Big Four are to be selected eacli year at the annual meeting. .There is a chance that U'e inter- mediate section will be filled np this 0 fall, and in that case Lethbridge will c- be sure to put a team in that divi- sion. ttous. 1 believe that the only thing to j will not be the same financial trouble do is '.'o take the franchise of the i to deal witli ac tbere was last, and club.

Yesterday these promoters j b'egan work on what will bo Iho best open air rinli ever constructed In tlie city. It will be located on the vacant lots in front of the V. M. C. A., owned by St. Patrick's church. Centrally lo- i cated as It will be, there iy not tho least doubt that it will eclipse the SUCKSS of Iho open air rinks of the two previous winters, and the skaterc of Lothbridse will not be Ions in lo.- eating this centre of attraciion when Jack Frost lias got In his digs. 'The rink this year will be by far the best ever put up in the city. It will be IL'O faut long and 7S feet In width, giving a fine "surface liiith for and hockey. One feature" about the rink which will he greatly appreciated iu that the dressing rooms will open right on tbe ice, making it very conVeni'ent for the skaters. A ten foot wall will surround tho entire rink, giving ample protection from the wind, and making the enclosure com foriable in all kinds of weather. On the west side also will be elected a spectators gallery running the full length of the sheet of ice, so that hockey games will be in comfort also. Another feature of the rink will be the lighting. This matter was given sertouy consideration before tbe con- struction was started. It is always i hard matter to light an Olieu rink but a scheme hay been evolved whereby the ice will be ighted by as many hundred candle power lights as may be found neces- sary. Nothing much has. been said yet is regards hockey for the winter, but. low that a rink is as-snred the play- ers will begin to think about tire 1 lockey end of the sport, "and a city eague will certainly he formed. Then -here be the district league, and he boys wilt have a chance to get back at Tabor for the druhing of last Anyway, a good winters sport s assured, and the promoters may be sure of a lilieral patronage. Skating nil hockey are both taking hold li-ere ind it is only a matt-er of a couple of years before a closed rink is built. MAJESTIC THEATRE W. I. IHERMAN. M.n.gtr.
