Cochrane Polo Club

     The Secretary desires us to state that the Polo Game advertised in the Calgary News-Telegram as forming one of the attractions of the Coronation Day Sports at Cochrane on 22nd June next, will not be played by -- or under the rules -- of the Cochrane Polo Club.

     There was a full turn out of players on Saturday last for a practice game on the new ground, and all seemed thoroughly satisfied with the choice that has been made.  The members present included the Captain O.A. Critchley, A. McPherson, E.H. Abell, O. Johnson, G. Hinds, J.G. Tweed, D.V. Saunders, C.R. De la Vergne and P. Kerfoot.  The ground rode well and most of the ponies out took kindly to the game.

Motor Cabs in London

     The enormous and rapid growth of the motor cab industry in London is shown in the figures given by Mr. H. Smith, President of the London Cabdrivers Trade Union, before the committee appointed by the Home Secretary to inquire into the conditions of the trade in view of the demand made by the men for higher fares.  According to Mr. Smith, there were two motor cabs on the streets in 1904, and 19 in 1905.  At the end of 1909 there were 3,956 and at the end of March this year the number was well over 7,000.
