THE VICTORIAS OF MONTREAL.

THE Victorias, with the McGill College team, are the pioneers of hockey, and to them is due much of the credit of developing the game into a science, because it was they who were instrumental in drawing up the first Code of Rules.

They held the championship of the A.H.A. of C. from 1894 to 1899, and the "Stanley" Cup for four years out of the seven during which it was offered for competition.

They have traveled more and are perhaps better known throughout Canada and the United States than any other team.
