An en- deavor to form a company to take over the franchise .did not material- ize and -the franchise has been duly handed over -to the league. left Regina for Moose Jaw a series u there, the defunct club provid- ing sufficient funds -to carry the team to its destination and from no-w- on the team must look to the league to see" them .through remain in the Western Canada circuitr The last act of Rdxy Walters, who acted as manager for .the late club, was to release himself and Pitcher Hueston, and they two have hiked to Edmon- ton, where they will link their for- tunes with the Eskimos. The Regina team, under which name, until the league president decrees otherwise, the aggregation still travels, left here with Letcher acting as special manager, while G-urney will fill the position of business manager until such time as President Eckstorm makes other-arrangements. The feel- ing .locally is that it.was no use con- tinuing the uphill fight. The fans had ceased to support the team, and ev- ery day saw the club getting deeper and deeper in the hole, and the fin- ishing touch was given by the disas- trous home series-just concluded. PHILADELPHIA Has the Best Balanced Infield in tiie Game Although it takes four men to make an irfield and only three for .an j fieid, there are more good -infields" than outfields.' It seems to 'be easier to find four infielders who.as a group measure up to, the standard than to find three such outfielders on one club. True, the infields have more of a chance to show what they can do, but the fine work in the outfield such as throwing and cutting ofiMbng'bits doesn't appear even -relatively as often -a.s fancy infield work. NO GAME AT THE CAPITAL There has was soon sup- planted by Pansy, who held the lead until the finish Earlwood's driver claimed the heat on the ground that Misinferna and' Pansy had delib- erately pocketed him.

New York, Aug. a poor day now when somebody, in this, broad land does not dig up the one mancwho can lick Jack Johnson, and thus bring the heavy weight championship north of the color -line. Something has gone wrong ia fanddm when the sun sets without heralding of a great un- known who is as big'as "Jeffries ar- ound the chest and considerably 'big- ger around the heart. In other words, the silly season for finding champions is on, and it's on all the more .because if the indus- trious explorers of Fistiana happen-to pick a live one they will have a whole yardful of geese laying golden- eggs so fast it would take an adding ma- chine, to -count them. .McGowan the First. About the first unknown to break in- to .print was Mr. Bill McGowan, the great -rough house fighter of Olympia, who .has ranged all over the country- side from Roslyn to Centralia and has never been slipped the -bitter pin of de feat.

There is a heavy weight iboxer in this country whom many expert auth- orities on -boxing figure to ;be the right man to challenge Jack Johnson, the big smoke, for the heavy weight honors. He is William Warren Bar- bour, who, on April 12 last, won the heavy weight amateur championship at Boston. This young giant stands 6 feet 2 1-2 inches and weighs 204 pounds stripped to fighting .togs. His few performances stamp him as a worthy opponent for any man of Jiis weight, and such good judges of fighters as Charley White, Jim Corbett and Jim Jeffries figure him to have a chance with the best in his class. During Jim Jeffries' tour last spring he donned the gloves and sparred a lively three ro'jaid 'bout with Banbour while in Philadelphia. Barbour land- ed several solid punches on Jeffries. solid, in fact that the big Cal- if ornian complimented the, Philadel- phia athlete after the 'bout on his also sparred with Barbour. and was- much impressed with the collegian's skill, footwork and blocking. May Seek Johnson's Title. Jack Johnson stands alone In his class, and as there is a dearth of white men in the ring to-day young Barbour might be induced to continue his -career in the ring and defend the white race for individual supremacy. Comparing Johnson and Barbour in size, the latter is an inch and a quar- ter taller than the champion, and at fighting weight would weigh about the same as Johnson did in his -bout with Jeffries, 208 pounds. He is game without question, as his form- er instructors, Jack Cooper and Jack Doyle, will vouch for. They were the two men who first gave Barbour in- struction in boxing and developed and trained him for his bouts in Boston, when he won the championship. Colonel William Barbour, million- aire thread manufacturer, father of the amateur champion, who takes a keen Interest in the art of self defence is not enthusiastic about his son en- tering the professional ranks pug- ilism.
