"There Is nothing In the world that can compare with the honor of the British sport. Britain can thank me for getting Bombardier Wells to re- enlist. There isn't any question but that his joining the colors has drawn many hesitating youngsters into the ranks. Wells was in the dressing room after I had knocked him oul and his eyes filled with tears as I shook his hand and told-him not. to take his defeat too hard. 'I'm done for, he said.

Betting men, practically with- out exception, today picked the Rod Sox to win the Amerl- leaf.ue pennant. However, they have a wholesome res- spect for Hughey Jennings Tiger as evidenced by the odds of 6 to 5 on Boston to win against the field. The White Sox are finding few supporters in New York al- though 4 to 1 Is quoted that the Chicago clan finishes in the first division. Following are some of the'odds offered: Six to 5 on the Red Sox to win; 5 to 3 that the Tigers fin- ish above White Sox; 4 to 1 that the White Sox flntoh in the first division; even money the White Sox don't finish with a COO percentage; even money the Nationals In the first division; 3 to 1 that neither Cleveland, phia or St. Louis finishes bet. ter thim sixth. e. the prob- FRED SNODGRASS Another surprise has been sprung upon unsuspecting fandom. Fred Snodgrass, famous outfielder of the New York Slants, has been given his unconditional release. Snodgrass lost the world's championship in Boston In 1912 when he dropped an easy 1 fly ball. It was -Manager opinion that thlj unhappy event would make Snougrass a better player than >ver, liut it evidently preyed upon ilm and loit him the respect of New York fans. He has steadily deterior- ated since he made the fatal error. f.'il in on ton, Aug. the leader of the opposition legislature, is mentioned as a able as is Mr. Justice Sratt of tlic Alberta su- premo court. It was reported some time ago that Governor Hulyca would be ap- pointed to tlw utility commission, hut that seems most unlikely. 1 hat will likely include John Stocks, dq.- utv minister oi public works, Judge: Carpciilrr ol Calgary, and a promi- nent business man either ol bdmon- lon or Calgary. A new position will be created at the coming session of the legislature, the official to have charge of the administration ot the Alberta Liquor Act just passed. It is understood that Mr. Hulyca will probably be appointed to that position. He is a very pronounced temperance man.

Boxing brought about a lot of that spirit, simnly because the fee ing.of friendli- ness was created from the time the French took up boxing. The French Way "At first a Frenchman would -box until he felt the other man getting the upper hand. Then he'd graceful- ly bow his way out of the ring, and call it a day. In order to encfturage the men to continue to the bitter end of a contest, the French boiing au- thorities formed the Societe d Eueonn Gement de Boxe, which pre- sented a gold medal to every French contestant if he fought gamely.

Stone, who is a clever boxer, but no means a slug- ger abandoned his usual tactics and tried to mix it with the rugged Kes- terson with fatal results. The hoys tore into each other like a pair of wildcats, and there was lots of ac- tion while the bout last-ad. Cloney Tait gave Wulff a boxing lesson for two 'rounds, but in the third the latter gained some confi- dence and landed several heavy clouts which made the :round .look even. But Tait had piled up an over- whelming lead.in the first two rounds and the decision was his by a city block, though one of the judges vot- ed "draw." O'Neill was no match for Alec Tait, the bout. being stopped in the second round to save the former from any further punishment. Howie got the decision over Mildon in a tame bout, the latter hardly landing a blow. Howie's gloves were covered with burnt cork, and the judges had no difficulty keeping track of his points.
