At Vulcan Fair Champion Sets Carmangay Squad Down By 16 to 1 Kvon tho best of them got beaten some times. Carmangay ball team, who walloped Lclhbridgo on a memorable occasion some time ago, went to Vulcan yesterday to take part in a tourney with Champion, Stavely and Vulcan. Tho result was most disastrous to Carmangay, Champion putting them out of the running 16 to 1. McJIorran and Marshall were the Champion battery and they wore going great guns. Beard and McCom-ber composed the Carmangay battery. Carmangay could do nothing with Mc-Morran, a professional from the Northwestern league. Stavely plays Vulcan at Vulcan today, and the winners will then play off tomorrow. With District Ball Teams INTERNATIONAL Toronto 1, Providence 0. Rochester -4, Richmond 2. Montreal 1, Newark 5.

Lund was twirling for Raymond and had the homo team guessing in all but the third innings when Tabor let loose and piled up six rung. The Raymond team gave Lund all the support a pitcher could ask, except in their unlucky, third, when Tabcr's batting sent them all over tho field. Skousen covered center field and did some very good work, Stevens as short stop is a whirlwind. Tod Hunter did tho pitching stunt for Taber, and had Tabor supported him as Raymond did, the game would have been another story. There was a big hole at second and Raymond found it right along. Geo. Birch umpired tho game and gave general satisfaction. LOMOND GAME TOMORROW IS OFF Tomorrow night's ball game between Lethbridge and Lomond has been called off owing to the heavy rain north of the city, making it impossible for the Lo-mondites to motor to Lethbridge. Injuries to the local players have assumed serious proportions. Johnny Livingston, who stopped one of Williams' fast Inshoots with his jaw in practice the other night went to the hospital yesterday for an operation. It is feared that his jaw is splintered. Murphy, who twisted his ankle in Wednesday night's game is also confined to the house under the doctor's care. With a baseball gamo every even I ing and tho Ross-Norway Boy scrap on tho forenoon of tho second day of the stampede, fans from the surrounding district aro assured of plenty of sport, in addition to the regular stampede diet which will fill in the afternoons. The big morning bout is already attracting wide attention. The Foremost branch fans will be hero in a body to see their favorite perform in the ring against a man of established calibre. Tho Norway Boy has a big following not only in .Many-berries but nil along the Weyburn branch. Last winter they were so sure that he .could take the measure of Young Uoss that they were talking a purse of ten thousand that their protege could dispose of Ross inside tho ten round route. His showing at I Orion-on July 2nd has strengthened 1 them in their opinion, and they will be in Lethbridge on the morning of Thursday, August 16th ready to nwl their heads off fprjtUe big fellow. Just who will furnish the preliminaries is not known as yet, but it is very likely that Andy Russell, of Calgary, who put on a four round exhibition here with Kid Evans hist winter, and Benny Miller, welterweight champion of Ontario will go six rounds as an exhibition. The club is now in touch with them at Calgary and if they can he secured, they will furnish a great go. Al Koselton, formerly 'of Lethbridge will act as the third man in the ring. AI is an old ring general himself and knows the game from the ground up. With him handling the bouts all tho boys are assured of a square deal.

T TO I MEXICANS KEEN FOR BASEBALL In Capital City There Are 102 gnnizd Amateur Teams. Or- Mexico City, Aug. 10.-That amateur sport is flourishing in the Mexican capital is shown by the fact that there aro 102 organized amateur baseball nines in tho city and its suburbs and fifty soccer football teams. The season for all varieties of sport in Mexico lasts twelve months a year, as the climate permits play at all times. Even during tho rainy season the mornings are almost always clear and sunshiny and the nature of the soil and the high dry atmosphere makes delay on account of wot grounds almost unknown. ACCOMMODATING. "My, but that popcorn smells good," exclaimed tho girl. "I'll drive closer," remarked her accommodating escort. -Puck. New York. Aug. 9.-The Giants must win the National league pennant this year if the New York club is to realize benefits from player investments totalling more than ? 100,000. Also the judgment of John McGraw in the matter of player values depends largely on the outcome of the pennant race. When McGraw started to rebuild the Giants in the winter of 1915-16 President Hempstead told him to go tho limit to get the players lie wanted. And McGraw went the limit. As a result President Hempstead authorized the spending of something over $100,- 000 for new playing talent, and McGraw picked out the players who caught his eye and set about making deals for them. In dealing on the player market McGraw pulled several David ITarums. He traded players who had long been rated stars of the Giants and got the better of nearly every trade. In purchasing players- particularly from the Federals-he had to dig down deep, and this is where the big end of the money wont. Cost Giants Big Sjjm Kauff. Anderson, Rousch, Rariden and McKechnie were the Federal league stars purchased by the New York ! club and cost the Giants about $90,000 in hard coin, for the Feds weren't in the market to trade or take first mortgages-they wanted cold cash and they got it. In addition to the purchase of those 1 players it must be figured that the ' Giants paid $10,000 for Slim Sallee and nearly $15,000 for Herzog, in completing the deal which sent Rousch, Math-owson and McKechnie to Cincinnati. The Zimmerman deal in which Larry Doyle figured as the chief trade value, also cost tho Giants some good coin, and Lew McCarty did not got into a Giant uniform until Charley Ebbets had received cash and Fred Mcrkle for the player. Took Long Chances In paying fancy prices for some of the Fed stars McGraw took what many called long chances. In purchasing players like Zimmerman, Sallee and Benton-players who were rated as hard men to handle-Muggsy was doing what few big league managers would have done, considering the money involved. But McGraw is getting results, and insofar as the Giants have gone to date it. appears that his judgment. In tho matter of players could not have been better. Won't Support a Loser However, New York is like all other cities in one way. Big as it is, it will not accord a loser the same support that it will give a winner, and although the Giants have played to many a great crowd this year, the expenses connected with the miming of the club are so great that interest must be kept up to the end of tho race and carried into tho world's series if the club is to get good returns for the investments made in players and their salaries. It is timely to say right here that when the New York club was spending big bundles of coin for players it was also assuming some mighty heavy contractu, for the Giants, as they stand today, are said to be the biggest salaried rjub in tho National league, i� not in the majors. t J , ^ -> "V __j""eat talkers aro like leaky kegs, ... everything runs out of thean.
