By this win Tutor seises. plnee h "so what's the ami they stayed at home. Hut It was a surprise to the SS who came. When the team took the field It looked as If the selection had been made from the grand stand and the harvest field. Long trousers were conspicuous among "the coats of many and one pair of long boots ran bases. It was whispered that some of the regular plavers didn't care how the game went, aaci when it was seen that Clarence O'Brien was not in the box, the Raymond reporter decided it would be "a for a Lethbridge man to write about, and put his notebook in Bis Docket. To another class the game was a great disappointment. They live in Lethbridge and .Magrath. Doubtless Lethbrmge came down Uj win. A -.'.'in would have tied them with Taber and given them a chance of winning out tor first place. A win for Lethbridge would have put Raymond into fourth and so there was disappointment ,lu Masrilth. A third class 'was affected. They live in Taber. With them the. game was au occasion of great joy. A report comes to the writer from a reliable source that Taber had all kinds of money for the Raymond pitcher that would pitch a winning game against Lethbridge. One man offered standing, with Lcihbridgc second; and we're looking for Rayinoiu third. Speaking today with Manager Amos of Raymond team, he sniiu "Loth-bridge evidently expected Raymond to mnd them the- gamp. They deserm to lose tho saline because of the way thev played. .Meyers was the easiest thing been up against this year." All the scores for Raymond were made in three innings, 7 runs being recorded in the sixth. Considerable dissatisfaction was expressed by Lethbridge because they were not allowed play the seventh inning. Thev went to bate but owing to' the darkiiess the first hit could not' be seen and so the umpire called the game. It is certain the seventh could not be finished and so the score would have to go buck to the s xth. There was considerable speculation among the spectators as to why Clarence O'Brien was not in the box. The Herald reporter approached President O'Brien today with n query that would arplain, but lie said that it was an arrangement between the two brothers of which he knew nothing. The lie game between Magrath and Raymond will be played in Raymond next Saturday.

Without 'a doubt fans generally regard Papke as the heat.mjddlewelght of them all, but several tough fellows In the division are running ground loose and William must meet and defeat these if he expects to be regarded -as a real champion. His last fight was with Jim Sullivan over In England and the American won easily in spite of the fict that Sullivan was regarded as a real fighter in London. This vic- tory has given Papke greater prestige than ever and since his return to this side he has been beseiged.-wHh offers for fights. Cyclone Johnny Thompson, who gained a decision over PapUe in Aus- is clamoring loudly for a crack at the title, and undoubtedly will get the first chance, although he cannot be conceded much of a show against; the champion. Papke fought Thompson a kind of a Joke fight on the other side and lost 'the decision because he tried to go through without administering any grcait amount of punishment. Cyclone Johnny IE some scrapper but it innst be remembered that he -Is twenty years Papke's senior and would not do much business with the Illinois fighter in a long, tough scrap. Leo Honck, Frank Klaus anil Hugo Kclley also want a chance at the title, and possibly Papko 'will meet the best of these fellows in ten-round bouts in Milwaukee, before taking any of there on for longer contests. Although Papke knocked out their great favorite when he dropped Sulli: van, the American middleweight Is very popular over in England and can fight at the National Sporting clnb whenever he wishes. He trained ao care- fully and went about so quietly in his fighting preparations that British sport- ing'men -generally liking, to him and his: victory rather a popular one. Papke's style of fighting too, tickled the Londoners and sporting critics on the other side were unanimous in ttie kind things said about the American. They consider him the best man at the weight they ave ever seen in a ring and 'are willing to concede him the mlddlev.-eight championship without a struggle. Causing Annoyance in the Canada- League Brandon, July the popular the Western Canada- Base- ball league is lo tie niaintalued at Its beot standard, tlio (incation of um- pires will have to be made tho sub- ject of more'serious consideration than has. been the rase up to the ireaent.' There are now officiating iis league umpires, two. cx-Urbndoii players, Mor- row and Leicher. whose prc'sonce on I he 'neat .is by no pro- ductive 'of satisfaction among tho supporters of the game here. Morrow's umpiring in Brandon was without any serious grounds Cor com- plaint, nnd his decisions in all the james. he controlled were better than .hose oE the average holder of the In- dicator. A different story, however, is told of the sanies at Winnipeg In which the Brandon team was concerned, though there are, of course two sides to that nuGstion. Officiating in Brandon at the present moment Is Tom Letcher, a Brandon cust-off. .Tom may be doins his best to give both, aides n square- deal, but such is far from the opinion of the avetage Brandon fan. In last night's game he showed a. r.mrkud inability to distinguish between balls "and strikes is delivered hy Hinrlchs, but experi- enced less- difficulty In the case of Mannltg. His decisions on stolen jases were also away off, and failed :J> please the ciowd. Din-Ing the pro- gress of the game Tom was openly accused, rightly or wrongly, by a spectator of having threatened to "put it over" the. Brandon team. Now all these things point to a state of affairs of a most unsatisfac- tory nature. The aliened threat against the. "local team 85 a player, but till s.uspi6ion undoubtedly existed In the minds of a section of the Cans that ho is working against the Bran- don to.am-'and- under these circum- stance.'''the-'aooncr lie is replaced here the better. It is a decided mistake .to allow .an- -Id player to umpire the game in wl.ich his old eiub Is Interested. He is to give dissatisfaction to either one side or the other, no matter how honestly he works. There should be no difficulty in BO locating umpires that neither Morrow nor.. Lfttcher, ever, handles-a game lu ich Brandon .is interested, and if the, league, is .to continue ..in harmony something of this soli will have to be done at once.

RUNG PICKS CUBS TO WIN THE PENNANT Boston, July KlinjS former ly of the Chicago Cubs, now of the Boston Rustlers, has'issued a rather interesting pennant forecast. Surpris- ing as it may soeni, Kling names the Cubs to win tho the Rust lore. Reasons why Chicago will take Lanother National league flag are pre- sented moot plausibly.

But I roust say honestly 1 do not think there in. "Of couse be, wrong, but it Is my opinion that Chance still has the best team In the league. Philadel- phia looks good, and, so does the Giants' team, but the Cubs surpass both. Why, Chance does not seem to have a -weak ipot on eliib. Hit pitching staff is not by any means. Find me a of twlrlen who ran surpass Brown, Ruelbach, Mcln- tyre, Cole, Ritchie and Curtis. Look at the, way his team is hitting, and fielding.
