The coming championship meet has brought forward the name of William Beach, of Melbourne. Australia, who won the championship from Edward Hanlon, of Toronto, in a race on the Paramatta river, in Australia, and fended the title successfully against Jacob Gaudaur, of St. Louis, on the Thames. After this victory Beach (retired and turned 'the championship jover to H. E. Searle, a yo.ung Austra- lian oarsman, who defeated W. O'- Connor for the championship, theoi died. Some persons believed that Searle was a greater oarsman than Beach. There was, however, only lit- tle difference between Beach, Han- lon and Gaudaur when in their prime. i When Beach beat Hanlon in Australia Americans and Canadians thought the antipodean had a decided shade over Hanlon. inasmuch as the race was rowed over a course that Beach was thoroughly familiar with. Hanlon made the long trip for the race and had little or no acquaintance with the Paramatta river. Beach is now living a retired life. Tough for Yankees in 1912. There is bound to be rough sledding mpic program. It is noteworthy'that the changes under consideration are in events in which in the past Ameri- can athletes have decided su- premacy. Bar Fight Pictures in Africa- The international discussion over the Jeffries-Johnson fight pictures extended even to far away South Africa, where they were barred at Johannesburg, teaches a valuable lesson: Why advertise prize fights? In England and Europe the game is lomparatively safe, but' if my advice were asked as to the American situa- ion I would say: "Eliminate the moving pictures and hree-fourths of the newspaper adver- is-ing of boxing." That is the best way to settle the difficulty. I see no eason why the pictures -should be pro ibited in London. In certain parts of America race roits might have result- d, but here.

Umpire Lougenecker. Ewry, America's three best point 'winners, will have ended their athletic days before 1912. There is no doubt that Americans still are improvins as athletes. There will be many favorable changes in the next two years. The Swedes and other nations also are coming along fast, and dr. will not be only the Britons who will have to be beaten as was the case in former Olympaids. Again. Hie odds in 1912 will be all against Uncle Sam. The Americans will be up against a combination The fact that Uncle Sammy has made therfest of the world's athletes look like a bunch of snovices in the past doesn't set well with the European crew. It was "anything to beat the Yankees" in London, and it will be even more so in Stockholm in 1912. The Swedes already have conspired with the Britons in an attempt to handicap the Yankees.

SHAMROCKS WON FROM CORNWALL Cornwall, Ont., Aug. Colts were beaten again by the rejuvenat- ed Shamrocks after the most thrill- ing game of the season, being after the first quarter not merely a clever exhibition, but a fierce contest for supremacy. The Shamrocks scored twice in the first quarter, But each tallied in the next, half time score being Shamrocks 3, Cornwall 2. In the third quarter Mike Cummins, a youngster, scored his second goal of the game for tne Montrealers, the score 4-2. In the Cornwall attacked the last quarter Shamrock's goal en .masse and later had to con- centrate for their defence, but the Colts were not to be denied and scor- ed.
