New York.-It seems that the United States has lost the championship of Europe to Canada. Newspapers arriving from London tell all about it. It must have been quite a social function as the account published in tho Sunday Dispatch, given below will prove. But the society reporter who wrote it overlooked one of the principal entertainers-Arlie Latham, no less. Think of it, telling all about Princess Louise and not mentioning Arlie! He is one of the United Statesers, herewith describort: Among Those Present Twelve to three-that was the score in favor of Canada when "time" was called in the great baseball game at Lord's yesterday, betweon Canada and the United States. Among tne many well known people present there were Princess Louise (Duchess of Argyll), Mrs. Waldorf As-tor and Lord Hawko. The demonstration of the favorite outdoor sport of North America was a high grado one and in every department on this occasion the Canadians (who are all active members of the Dominion Army contingent) topped the bill. The Yanks began well, but when the pressure came they got rattled and the ball ,was hurled in overy diroction but the right ono. One of the most sensational "stunts" of the day-and there wore many-was a one-hand catch by Shorty Humphreys, of tho American team. To Shorty also wont the credit of making the longest hit. Stanley, the Canadian "pitcher" was the star on the Dominion side, some of his curves and "iu-shoots" being remarkable. Come On, You Yanks In quite a friendly spirit tho United States representatives were greeted with such remarks as "Come on, you Yankees; let's see what you can do now that you have joined us." "Guess we'll put up a fine fight," was the humorous retort, but the pitching of Stanley, combined with general all-round good work on the bases, resulted in tho United States side not scoring, with the result that Canada was two up after the first inning. As time went on Canada increased the advantage, and at half-time had the game well in hand. When "time" was called, leaving the Canadians victors, the scene of enthusiasm was indescribable. Wounded men threw thoir crutches In the air and caught hatB thrown by their comrades. But the Americans are true "sports" and took their licking llko "sports." Anent Tyrus Cobb "Tho game is to worry the pitcher and he is worried either by the public or the players so does enthusiasm prevail,'1 said a Canadian. "We are out to win every time. The champion bat of the States lives at Detroit, and draws more money every year than the president of the United States. But all the same, he Is a real good chap, and all our fellows appreciate him as much as they do our own champion." other city in the league. "Reports from the International league say that the Toronto players swear by Lajoie. He has a forceful it quiet personality, and while not domineering like Frank Chance, tew men are apt to trifle with him twice. "Of course it may be that Colonel Ruppert wishes to give "Bill" Donovan another chance with the Highlanders. But if he feels that "Bill" has had every opportunity and Is seeking a new leader he will look a long time before he sight* a better prospect than Napoleon Lajoie, nonpareil of second basemen." � New York, Aug. 23.-The indifferent work of the New York American league team, which many followers of tho fortunes of the Highlanders believe will inevitably result in the deposition of Manager "Bill" Donovan, has created considerable speculation as to who will succeed him. Among the names most often mentioned in that connection is that of Manager Lajoie, of Toronto, whose selection for tho job would meet with the unanimous approval of the fans of New York. Voicing tho popular view, the New York Mail says: "Colonel Ruppert is looking for a new leader, and he need not look very far. Why not snare Napoleon Lajoie from Toronto? Lajoie is proving a skillful manager in the International league. Years ago when a young man and at the height of his wonderful playing career the Frenchman handled the Cleveland team. He did not win any pennant, largely because of accidents to himself and other star players at. critical stages of races. But he was up there in the fight every year. "Larry retired voluntarily from the Cleveland managership. He felt it best to devote all his time to playing. Now be is past forty and should be much better equipped to handle men. "Ho is making a great showing at Toronto. He has his team leading the league. He Is an Idol in the Canadian city, where despite the war, base- JACK ELLISON Cardston Grappler Has an Easy Time Defeating Travelling Mat Artist at Fair .Tack Ellison of Aetna la still a classy performer at the mat game.
