There was a bumper crowd in at- tendinie, halt of die spectators Ixinj Tabar and supportora, and a more excited throng would -be hard to conceive over an issue of the kind. All were filled with the spirit the occasion and none were backward in giving vent to their feelings, the lad- ies not exoepted, aod they were represented there. Warner Looked It was somewhat of a tough lose for Warner. They had the game very muoh their "way until the fifth, the score standing G to 1 in their favor. In the fifth with tro down Tabsr started a rally which the boys from the south faJledvto off until their opponent! had evened up mat- ters. However, Wimer took the lead in the sixth by tacking on a couple more tallies, and tint was the last time they figured Jn the run-get- ting department. But Taber WM not through; in the sixth they again broke through Warner's defence and the score. There was nothing do- ing on side in the seventh, but Taber came back in the elfhth and locred the winning run on a waft, a. hit and an error.

They failed to "touch all bags and suffered the uiual penalty. Therefore Bnglehart's lomer with the baaes full suffered a discount. Warner Piles Them Up Berg and Fulmore brought War Jler's score up to four in the third taking advantage of some poor field Ing-, till again Warner tallied two more In the fourth on Bnglehart he ing hit hy Duggan and Gorril coming across with a single, loose playing being responsible for the runt Warner 'went down easily in but in the ilxth Gorril, with two down, hit aafely and scored on a, hit to left by Berg, Tabor's outer gardener let- ting the fcall get by while tie runners purloined'the bates; Berg later scor- ed oa a aincle by Fulmer.

Orr came along with a single aud scored both run- ners and then he scored on an error at abort in the fielding of. Leper's hit. Leper then, immadlately scored on hit by Campbell. Judion fle-w out. Wiag singled, and A. Lee retired the aide on a grounder to third. That ended a moat disastrous chapter for Warner. Two more in the sixth and one in the eighth and the victory be- longed to Taber. Evenly Matched There ware too many errors to term 'the gane a cissty exhibition, but 'the mishaps were well divided, ami the teams thus were battling up- ,bn even merits, and after tie fifth it was anybody's game until the last man was out under. The interest by the crowd was extremely and what the lacked was retrieved by the evenness of the last half.

Commodore Mclnenly and his lieutenants promise to ;kecp up their good work and push aquatics to the front. They contemplate big things and the fine patronage that has heen accorded them in their ef- forts makes their work encouraging.
