Toronto. Sopt. 4.���It is seldom thut
a lacrosse match is witnessed such ns
thut in which thc Now- Westminsters
und Torontos figured nt Rosedale yestorday afternoon. The game wns full
of excitement from start to finish.
The lido of buttle flowed lirst one way
mid then the other, and the spectators
were kop! un edge right to the r( f-
eree's whistle calling for cessation
of piny, und even after Hint too, for
when the game ended with the score
a fie. four goals ouch, there wus quite
un argument on thi' field ns to whether the game should continue till one
or tbe other side should score n winning ..oul. The Torontos were eager
to play on. but tbe Westminsters concluded a draw wus good enough.
llob Cheyne wns hit ill the eye soou
after tlie commencement of the match,
but nut until the fourth game did be
quit. Gray went Into goal thotf. The
defence wns moved back nnd Uyall
went on the home: Thun AlleU Her
got nn ugly Hinn.sb on the head, a big
gash resulting therefrom. The
wound   wus   stitched    up    nnd   Allen
played on, Great, ix took u cramp in
the noxt game und they hud hardly
started playing again when Jimmy
Murray wns scut to tho grass by a
crack on tho cranium. The seventh
game scarcely got under wny when
Prlngle received n blow in the eye
which put him out of the game. Latham went oil' to even up.
Tbe New Westminsters showed up
as :i sturdy bunch of athletes, all
strong heavy follows with plenty of
speed and Btaylng ability. 'They
checked closely, watching their opponents carefully. Quickness in uncovering seemed to be their strong
point. Whenever n player got away
ibcie wus hardly nny catching him
and he wns always utile to get rid of
the bull to advantage. The visitors
played a good Bcorlng game but the
powerful Toronto defence held them
well in check. Their own defence
wus u capable one. The Hugs were
nearly always protected by ut least
two players uml never left unguarded
fur a Binge minute, Kvery one of Toronto's gouls were scored with a clns-
ler of struggling players between the
shooter und goal.
The Westminsters were in the game
ut nil BtOges mid it wns just, by    tbeir
method of allowing no chances to slip
by thnt tbe Torontos were prevented
from winning. They gave mi example
of what tbey might do if not watched
closely by Bcorlng the seventh game

though the match wns In reality an

The game wus hotly contested but
the western Icnni showed Itself dctd-
edly stronger nnd though tho Capitals
ruined down shots on the 11. C. goal
tbey found Westminster's defence line
Impregnable. The visitors were heav-
lei men and afforded the large orowd

TIIK MUX'S ARE GROWING
Sir Richard Cartwrlghl allows the
Government n .������ Idc margin, but bo is
tho lirst Minister tu put II limit on the
period w Ithln which the nexl general
election is to be brought off. In no*
ceptlug 11 fonoiiiinntioii for bis old Oxford   1 Btltuency   thc  other dny, he
told bis friends that it would be hold
within the nexl eighl months. If
within eight months, there is no
groat reason why the ovent Bhould not
tube place within eight weeks, Ministers could advance n good excuse
for another session, it thoy could sec
the possibility of utilising the census
that will be taken In April nexl In
the composition of it measure of redistribution thai could be disposed of before the limit of tbe present Parliament expires- some time in July.
Um if ii is not proposed to wait for
the census, tbe comfort nnd convenience of the mass of tho Canadian people would he best consulted If the
election were brought on before November was well advanced, Unfortunately, however, it is thc eonvenlonco
of Ministers that will govern in thi
matter, nnd should the signs Hint
poini most propitiously for them Indl-
cato midwinter, midwinter it will
be.
Ii is observed, howev r. that the activity "l the Ministerial party, wbioh
ii is only natural to assume is moved
by the spring i of inspiration, continues as great us over, nnd in fuel is
every day pun Ing on the appearance
of grimmer earnestness. The organs
especially   are    beginning   to    wear
n 1 palgn aspi el    Their columns nro
fast filling up with the Indiscriminate
praise  of   I he   party leaders  ihm one
looks foi  he occttsl f n   (ienernl
eleotion. Some weeks ago a New
Yoil; prate Hlonnlcorrespondent wrote
in fulsome adulation of sir Wilfrid
Laurier, and from the universality of
its reproduction wc enn only conclude
that the campai n managers huve issued orders to give the panegyric thc
widest publicity. We do not know
thai American appreciation of Canadian methods in polities nmi statesmanship will count for n great deuti up
