MEDICINE HAT LACROSSE CHAMPS. Beat Taber in a Listless Game Last Night; Score 8-2 (Special to The Herald.) Medicine Hat, Alta.. Aug. cine Hat won a listless game of la- crosse from Taber tonight by a score ef S to 2. It was a featureless game with no life. Tabor lacked the ag- gressive spirit which has marked their games in the past and did not seem to want to win. Their passing was lioor, shooting and cheeking had. It a walk away for the list. The home team piled up three in the first Quarter while the visitors ,went scoreless. The second quarter the visitors came back strong, but after shooting two goals lost their am to further Increase their score did not locate the goal again dur ing the game. Tho home team from then on scor- cd.at will: Position Goal Point Cover 1st def. 2nd def. Cent-re NATIONAL RACE Tint National League race I-.' surely a dandy one. Tbe meteoric rise of the I'iraU'S w.is one of the remarkable things to date, but the I'irntes are strong and will give any pf them a run for Their inonoy. Mnrtiimrd's good pitching has kept the Giants in the race as Muthewson lias failed to de- liver the goods ihte year -.is formerly. Chicago has a hall that is generally consid- ered to he inferior to the great Cub machine of other years, but in suri'risini; way tbe team goes along with ro- murkahle consistency when It conies to winning games.

The' champion Mack not only beat that record, but fairly distanced ii, and' save [he most spectacular ex- hibition of extreme speed ever seen upon a race course, trolling the half in 1-i, something nmlrc-iined of even by his most ardent admirers. As there was a strong wind blowing tlie trial ny the champion was delay- ed until lat-e in the afternoon. C. K. G. Hillings agMin had the mount be- hind the champion, and he was ac- companied by a runner driven by "Doc" Tanner. Me was sent off on the first trial fairly flying, and when he covered the first quarter in 1-2 it was certain that the record woiiM he shattered. Through the homo stretch the clip increased and the second quarter was covered in 3-1 making the half in 1-1. BRANDON AND MOOSE JAW PLAYED WITH THE USUAL RESULT Moose Jaw, Aug.

As the match grows near the interest increases and friends, acquaintances and. strangers are dally beselglng Jack Curley for in- formation -regarding his man. Cur- ley's days at present arc .not days.of pleasure, for he Is about tho busiest manager In the. country. Besides the hundreds of personal visits to his room' mall is 60 heavy that quires much of his time In opening aud 'answering the And nouo no tinauBwared (row friend or foe, unless tho question is some silly one.

We know Gotch Is 'a wonderful wrest- ler, yet we feel inclined to believe that 'Hack' is so good that he may win from the champion. Tell us hon- it you think ho will win.' Such are the questions that are fired at Curley from early morn until the shades of night drive the fans Into retirement. Naturally it Is to Jack's interest to boom his man, and Jack Is booming the "Lion" hut the boom cornea from thu huirt and not from hte view of a Curley honestly, be- Hack is going to wrest the title from Gotch and he is predlc-. tlhg.it to the world: "This-match needs' no booming; it needs np'false repre- sentation. It is a drawing card In Itielr and no matter what I1 might say for Hack or for Gotch, It would, not influence the- wrestling fans. They know 'that this is going to be a con- test thnt Hack a wrestler capable of giving Gotch the match of his life and that it Is for championship of the world and It needs no further play. Those M-ho have made up their minds to go will be tbere, no matter what Is written or laid, and-those who hare not given the mutter thought up to this will not be among thope present when tkinfs comes oft." "I pride myself at being a good booster, for I have been in the gtmo long, but I standri-eady to say that I have never knowingly' or willfully de- ceived anybody, l.am heart and loul with 'Hack' in! this' match and I cim see nothing that will give Gotch a vic- tory and sentiment Is not forcing tbls statement, either." Hack proved '-his calibre last year. This year he Is far better and In the best of sbape. Me knows as much as Gotcb, is as fast and tricky and has a great deal more strength and endurance._I do not want to Influence any one nor do I want to encourage betting, but. I want to fo down as picking Hack as the winner and when I make this statement Ii Ii as sincere as can In."
