Jimmy Vlox, last season with the Leafs, has quit the Kansas City club of the American association, owing to a disagreement over salary. Joe Birmingham, who managed the Loafs for part of last season, has refused to accept a cut in aalary in tho New York State league ,and has secured his release. Umpire "Tex" Irwin in the New York State league, and former Rochester catcher, has been called to the colors. President Ban Johnson, of tho American league is now in Boston to assist the Boston club to eliminate tho gambling element from the games at Fenway park. The Aurora team in the OA,LA. Junior series, has retired from active competition. A decision handed out by the O.A.L.A. was not agreeable to some of the Aurora players and they docided to drop out. Not since the days of Kid Lavigne and Joe Gans has the lightweight division boon' represented by a greater champion than Benny' Leonard, says an eastern fight critic. He has ^prov-ed since ascending the throne that he does not purpose to be a champion in name only. He has proved that, he does not Intend to follow the load of those champions who have immediately preceded him and seek only the golden shower that goes with tho title. He has shown that he intends to give the fans a run for their money any time ho faces the barrier in the ring. For the last few years it has been Referee Jud Foley raised Young Ross' hand in the fourth round of 1 the scheduled ten round bout with tho Norway Boy at the Majestic this morning and declared him tho winner by a technical knockout. At the time the fight had readied a stage where it was just a case of how much more punishment the Norway Boy could stand. In the third round Ross tore into his opponent in hammer and tongs style, and with a series of right and left uppercuts had tho Xor-j way Boy rocking on his feet and groggy when the bell saved him. The decision of Referee Foley was right in every particular and pleased the fans. Norway Hoy's backers could see that at best, ho couldn't last more than another round. His gimp was gone and he couldn't keep up his guard effectively against- Ross' boring in style of battle. Altogether the result was unexpected to many, who had conceived the idea- that Ross wasn't as good as lie was last winter when he fought Iko Cohen. But although Ross is heavier, he has lost nouo of his science and he never went into the ring in better shape. In the first two rounds the Norway Hoy used his 25 pounds extra weight wrestling Ross round tho ring in an endeavor to wear him down but Ross was^nover fazed. His condition told. The big fellow looked to bo in good shape and when he stepped into the ring it looked as if Ross couldn't win against the odds of weight, reach and height. It was the nicest fight Ross ever made here, and there was plenty of action. The first round was a sparring affair, the two feeling each other out. The Norway Boy smiled confidently. Ross-showed that he was In training. His blows were better timed mid judged bettenas to distance. Jt was an oven round. Round two showed Ross shoving ahead and getting confidence as ho fathomed his opponent's style. Ross played for the jaw and tho heart. It was Ross' round though little damage was done. Ross drew crimson on Norway Boy's nose. In tho tihird round Ross wont at his job in earnest. Norway Boy slipped over a swing early in the round and Because we have made good cigars for over 70 years, and thousands of smokers will smoke no other.

The champions immediately before Leonard were In the habit of striving only to protect their titles. They argued, "If I injure my hands, who Ib going to pay mo for the big sums of. money that I will miss while I am laid up?" There was no answer. And as a result they did not try to hit hard. They were content to get in tho ring, be paid big sums for merely .tabbing and getting away. Thoy wore defensive champions. There are many who will argue that Kid Lavigne was greater; that Joe Gans could take all the Leonards of the prosent day and tie them ' into knots when Gans was at his best. But could Lavigne.or Gans do it? That's a question that only memory serves for a comparison. , Leonard can not possibly enter the ring against either of them. And memory is deceptive. With naught else to -guide, memory is apt to make those who have lived in the past far greater than they really were. ' This Is not written to make Lavigne and Gans appear less'great than they were, for Lavigne and Gans were two. of the greatest boxers and fighters the ring has ever known. But it is written in all fairness to Leonard. Benny ras reversed the order of things since he became champion. . Apparently ho Is not trying to save his hands; evidently ho Is willing to give the fans a run for tho money they pay at the gate; seemingly he has placed tho commercial side of the sport secondary to tho sportive side of boxing. And for this reason he deserves every bit ot praiso that is coming to him. CLOSE FISHES MM RACES AT THE BIG STAMPEDE Track Was Fast and the Cards Fairly Well Filled-Race Again Today IE OVER TABER, 6 TO 4 Good Game But Small Crowd- Locals Pulled Off Some Fast Ball on to tho end of tho round Ross went aftor his man at every opening, upper-cutting with right and loft to the jaw just boforo the bell, sending the Norway Boy to his corner with his daubers down. The end was In sight. The fourth found the Norway Boy swinging wild and unable to keop his arms up. To save him punishment, Referee Foley did the only thing left and called tho fight with Ross winner. The preliminaries wore all to tho merry. Andy Russell, who Is no stranger to Lethbridge fight fans, appeared In a six round event with Billy Miller. Thoy put. up a classy scrap for six rounds, the bout being declared a draw.  Russoll was ten pounds lighter than his opponent, but his classy -.footwork saved, him punishment and he landed ms rtany blows as did Miller. Miller is a heavy hitter and likes inside fighting. His blows this morning were not so well aimed as they would be if he was in training. Russell's footwork was a pleasure to see. He ia a two handed fighter, stands square to his man 'and isn't taking any punishment that isn't coming to him. These two boys are likely to appear here later in a ten round bout. They got a great hand from the crowd. A two round preliminary between George Kennedy Rnd George Thompson, two bantams, was plenty of fun lor the crowd. The boya weren't afraid to mix It at any stage ot the aerap. . *l Josh Heuthorne, ot Calgary, with his o win 'illimitable voice was present and acted w official annouueer- Some neck and nock finishes marked tho horse racing at tho stampede yesterday, and although tho track records were not broken, the different heats were closoly contested and furnished some excitement for tho big crowd. In tho 2.30 pace, 2.25 trot, there were five entries, but Baron Cross and Carbon were drawn, leaving O. C, owned by Coulombe of Calgar, Ravencress, owned by Moreland of New Dayton, and Pathfinder, owned by E. Luehia of Nobleford, to fight it. out. Jack Wales piloted O. C. to victory in tho first heat after trailing all tho way. He came up on tho back stretch and nosed Pathfinder out in the stretch. Pathfinder won the next two heats, fighting it out with Ravencress. The best time of the race was 2.25. Tho track was fast and in good condition generally. Tho three-eight'as mile run was won by Martha McGee, a Calgary hoi-ao owned by A. C. Hcdford. Another Red-ford horse, Luo Hill, carrying 122 pounds, won the mile run. Luo Hill loci from the first aftor getting away to a good start.

S Half Mile Pony Race Kitty, Kinsoy, Raymond, .......1 Last night's ball game which Lethbridge won from Taber 6 to 4 was not so well attended as might have been expected considering the crowd in the city, but tho stampede events did not finish until seven o'clock and very few stampedors were able to attend. Those who missed the game missed ono of the best of the season. Lethbridge and Taber put up a pretty argument for seven innings. After the first two innings the boys settled down and played fast ball. Taber got three in tho first off Rutledge, a cou-plo of errors behind him contributing to the merriment. But after that he held them in good style, one run in the fifth being their only other chance. Rutledge pitched nice ball working the batters in good style. It was his second win before a Lethbridge audience. Taber started Emard of Burdett on tho mound. Emard pitched some grand ball at tho Medicine Hat tour ney, but the locals fell on him hard last night. In the second innings Taber aviated, and after four runs had boen scored, making the score 6 to 3, ISmnrd was yanked and big Lewis came in from left. He did a nlco job in the box, Lethbridge being blanked for the remainder of tho game. � The locals pulled off some fast work during tho gamo. In the second, Hut- ledge poled out a triple, driving In a man, but was caught himself off third. C. Gillis made threo catches In the sun field that brought the stand to its feet. Green made a running catch in centre that robbed Taber of what looked like a sure hit, and his peg to the plate, glueing a runner at third was all to the merry. Walsh Is beginning to look very much at home on third base. His work around the awkward corner last night was high class. Cosgrlff played for Taber and his stick work was all to tho good. He collected three safeties. The score by innings: Taber..........300 010 0-4 6 5 Lethbridge......240 000 x-8 8 3 Emard, Lewis and,Lewis; Rutledge and Bond.

New York, Aug. 14.-The estimate of 130,000,000 placed on the estate ot Alfred G. Vanderbilt when his will was tiled is shown to have been much too high by the transfer tax appraisal ot the Lusitanla victim's estate, filed in the surrogate court which places it at $16,769,314. The net estate amounts to $12,748,436, the largest deduction being $2,000,000 which went to Mrs. Margaret Emerson Vanderbilt, the widow, under an ante-nuptial agreement. The estate as appraised includes a trust fund of $4,612,086 from the estate-of his father, Cornelius Vanderbilt. His first wife was not mention-oil in his will. � COULDN'T ESCAPE With pathetic tears on her baby cheeks, little Ethel ran up to tho big, stalwart policeman. "P-p-ploase, sir," she sobbed, "will you come and lock a bad man up?" "What's ho been doing?" asked the man in blue gently. "Oo-boo-boo," wailed Ethel, "he's b-b-broken up my hoop wif 'is nasty bicycle." "Has he?" replied tho bobbie angrily, as he saw her tears flow afresh. "Where is hp?" "Oh, you'll easily catch *lm," said Ethel, drying her tears. "They've just quit! oil 'im into that chemist's shop on a shutter!"-Argonaut. SEIZE AUSTRIAN MERCHANTMEN Shanghai, China, Aug.
