Pittsburgh Brown University, southpaw recruit, out Boston today while tho Pir- ates scored three runs. Plttoburg's tallies all came iu the seventh when Dickson was batted from the box Gibson had a perfect record at the bat, getting four singles. Much has been said about the Ov erseas but one usually finds the there be such a ly evenly distributed ou the footbal field; and, 'with tho exception of the last twenty minutes of their encoun- ters with the 'Sons of England on Tuesday, I am not prepared to admit that the 'Seas have had any -more luck than their opponents. If they were lucky at all.'it was in being able to keep their team together right through the schedule: Patterson's ac- cident in .the second anatch with the Sons let Chisholm in for one game, and Bannerman played in place of Bembridga last Tuesday; otherwise the team was intact from first match to last. But it requires more than, luck to keep a .team together, as more than one. football manager will ad- mit. It seeing strange, however, to see the Callies and S. O. E. occupying in- ferior places in Lethbridge football, though, after all, it is but following the universal law about th'e old order changing. At the beginning of the season both teams looked good, and as'a matter of fact were good, but the 'Seas'proved themselves to he just a trifle better. The latter- kept right on improving with every match, while the two older they cer- tainly never came up to their old- time standard, .in either case. The Overseas are not, strictly speaking, a classy bunch of players, but collective- ly they play a brand of football which invariably wins matches, and which 'will of'tea. beat a team stars. Overs OH s Callies Sons The shows pretty conclusively, I think, tho superiority of the Over- seas team; .tho most about. their per form a nee, us already indicated, being that they went through the entire schedule with only thirt-eeu players, .Chisholm nnd Uiuv nerman displacing Patterson and Bembridge iu one anatch. The players who appeared in every match were; Sumner, Home, Multen Halkfireon, Joyce, Sinnn, Brennan and Thorn p sou. J. J. McDermott ii Winner of U. S. Professional Golf Championship 'Buffalo, N. Y.

J. Brady of Wollnston.. During the afternoon JlcDormott went to first place anil won the title by a score of 71, Brady turning In a card of 79 which dropped him into fourth place. The Caledonians utilized the ser- vices at sixteen players for their six those going tho full course Banneraian, Glenn, White and Linning; Hasten, Brennan, Tennant; McMurtie and Knight appeared in five games; Oli- ver in four; Hcllvena in two, and Ilementson, Smith -lieJllllen and Ness in one. American .White Sox Beat the Highlanders Chicago, Aug. was hit hard today in the opening with New York and Chicago won.5 to 3. Chase's base running and hitting featured the game.' Detroit Shut Out Aug. bested Willet on the mound today and Wash- ington shutout Detroit 4 to 0. There were no features to the game outside the work of the pitchers. St. Louii Lost'Again St. Aug. hit Hamil- ton and Powell hard while Wood pitch- ed his usual strong game and St. Louis lost the third game of the series 9 to q. Much of the credit accruing to the -'Seas must go to Sumuer, their goal- keeper, who has played a consistent- ly good game during the season. He has saved his team on many occasions and his selection on the Lethbridge People's Shield team was conclusive proof that he ie the best goal-tender in the city. Mclntyre, of the Callies has run him pretty close, hut the lat- ter is so well protected 'by his backs that he does not get tho same oppor- tunity to shine as the Overseas luan In the Cup games, which start next week, I expect a great 'struggle be- tween the three .senior teams, and shall not be a bit surprised to see the .Overseas "lift" everything in sigh this season.. The'. Sons of Eiugland called on no :ewer than men in their endeavor to gain a prominent place n .the standing. Of these, FlrtJi, Leo, Willett's and Parker were the only go through every engage- uent; Farris, Holberton and Bsst- vick appeared in five; Ashman in our; Freeman, Coles and Gurr in llree; Fairbrother in two, nnd Jordan, Bennett, Huggett, Clarke, Chiswick, Dalzell, Faunch, Trier, Ball, Woller, .Holberton and Palmer in one each, 'rom this it will 'be seen that the Sons have ample material from which o select, and explains, in a measure, both their lowly place in the premier division and their ascendency in the junior ranks: for, while the quantity is there, tile quality does not pan out to what is'required among the sen iors. The Englishmen should, if pro- per methods are ladopted, be able to put. out a much improved lean! next GOSSIP OF FOOTBALL LEAGUE IN THE PAS3 Lille has Pfobably Dropped Out- Players go to other cluba Hillorest, Aug.

In the secon half of .that game the rare- ly in the picture, and certainly the Sons deserved to win.' The latter however, ft seemed to me, were jus asJifcless in the first half. They nei er seemed to get together, and i looks as if .the Sons their bee when playing against odds. True, they were carrying a passenger or two on their team, and probably a furthei change in -their forward line, even in the last ten minutes of the game might have brought victory. Bestwick arid Parker were their brightest stars but they were poorly supported, and many of iihelr beat efforts 'were nul lified by.slackness on the part of .their team-mates. Northwestern Spokane 12, Vancouver i. Seattle 9, Tacoma 5. Portland 6, 0. For genuine escltment, let me re commend a junior Sons of England and CalHo match. There was one at ihe Ball Park on Thursday night TO decide tbe championship o-f the inte-r- medJa-to .league. The Sons won, us they deserved to-do, because, on the whole, they were the better team. The ground and the weather were ag- ainst fast play, but the junior Socs "stayed" better than the Callies, who, strictly speaklug, cannot bo tru'hftii- iy styled and towards finish many of the latter were deold- edly "all In." There arc a. few clev- er youngsters working for the Eng- lishmen just now, notably Jordan, Ball n.nd Roach, all of whom may ba scon in tho senior nuks for the cuo series. It was a
