SATURDAY GAMES New York . ... 000 010101-3 6 0 Cleveland..... 000 000 000-0 4 1 One of the big events of the bowling season was concluded on Thursday last, when Scott and Hamly turned the trick on their opponents, Fairley and Cameron, who had worked their way up through the different rounds by consistent bowling. As usual Bob Scott had all the "luck," and with the able assistance of his team mate Hamly, who has been playing a splendid game all season, they, had but little trouble in winning the majority of their games. The deciding game, while not as exciting as some others in the series, brought out some real clever bowling, and at one time the game was conceded to Farley and Cameron. However, when the 15 ends were over the Scott-IIamly combination had it over their rivals by a score o� 15 to 13. This game concluded the "doubles" competition, and to the winners go a pair each of Taylor best Scotch bowls, which were kindly donated by W. A. Buchanan, M.P. Touchers Harry Fleetwood is going strong in the "singles," and has his monogram all ready for the bowls. Calgary may be here on Labor Day with a dozen crack bowlers.

DAVIS & SONS, LIMITED, MONTREAL. s DEFEA1 CHAMPION TEAM 4 TO 2 �Calgary, Aug. 27.-Vulcan won the championship of the S.P.A. baseball tournament by virtue of their victory over Champion in the final game at Mewata park on Saturday night by a score of 4 to 2. IP was by far the greatest exhibition of ball during the entire series and the stellar pitching of Webb, for the winners, was the feature of the contest. He held the Champion team to three scattered hits and struck out no less than 12 men in the six innings, while the losers used up Meyers and Mac-Moran in an endeavor to stem the tide of defeat, but the latter was rather wild, though both of them managed to keep tho Vulcan batters to four hits. Five hundred dollars went back with the Vulcan boys as (their share of the $850 purse put up by the S. P. A. executive and the Champion lads were credited with $250 as a reward for the showing this week. Calgary's all-star aggregations will meet tonight to decide the winner of the remaining $100, offered as third prize. Lacombe and Drumheller were tho other two teams eliminated in the early stages of the series. A three game ball series has been arranged between Vulcan and Champion for a $1,000 side bet and the championship of Alberta on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, as. an aftermath to Saturday's game between Champion and Vulcan, and certain dissatisfaction which followed on account of the shortness of the game. Manager Danny Harper or Champion, threw out a dell at Manager Butler, of Vulcan, for a three-game series for a $1,000 side bet to be played here In Calgary. Manager Butler has accepted. Vulcan played rings around Calgary "B" team in the afternoon and the majority of the fans were more than disgusted with the showing of the locals. The final score was 20-5. PITCHER LOSES BALL IN WINO-UP WHILE RUNNER TAKES THIRD Stealing third on a pitcher without the twirler delivering the ball was the odd stunt pulled at a game between the Crescent Athletic club team of Brooklyn, N.Y., and an organization of collegians, this year. The funny part of the play was that the base runner probably didn't Intend to steal right then at all. In tbe course of the pitcher's elaborate wind-up, the ball slipped through bis Angers and bobbed over his shoulder, landing about fifteen feet behind him. The runner was off like a shot. The second baseman and the pitcher both went after the ball, the latter getting there first. The runner reached third long before the ball did. The pitcher's team mates were slightly incensed over tbe Incident. BARRIEAU GOING EAST Frank Barrieau, the Coast middleweight champion, will soon more east If his manager, Fred Wlnsor, carries out the program he has In mind at present. Wlnsor has wired Tom Andrews of Milwaukee, asking for a match with Jeff Smith, one of the topnotchers among the world's middleweight*, and If the match is forthcoming Barrieau will leave for the big time within % couple of weeks. L Miss Fanny Durack, undisputed all-around woman swimming champion of tho world, will face the hardest opposition she has ever been called on to meet at the international water carnival at Honolulu in September. For this event America will send her best talent to try to wrest from the Australian marvel swimming honors she has held for tour years in all distances from 50 yards to a mile. Miss Durack is perhaps the most versatile woman champion of all time. Her records from the shorter sprints to distances well over a mile have never been seriously challenged and swimming is a great deal like running, different styles being needed for diiferent distances. Miss Olga Dorfner, of Philadelphia, perhaps has the best chance to best the Australian water witch in the shorter distances. She haB negotiated the 50-yard sprint in 20 seconds, tying Miss Durack's world record for the distance. She alBo holds the American record for 75 and 100 yard sprints, the latter Is 1:08 3-5, a trifle more than two seconds over Miss Durack's record. Miss Dorothy Burns, of Los Angeles, an excellent middle distance swimmer may be Miss Durack's chief rival in tho 200, 220, and 300 yard swims and Miss Claire Galligan, of New Ro-chelle, N.Y., will challenge Miss Durack's speed over the 440 and 880 yard and mile distances. Miss Galligan has never come close to equalling Miss Durack's records over these distances, but is is young and improving every day. Her slow trudgeon crawl stroke makes her the most formidable contender over the longer distances. Miss Frances Cowles of San Francisco, will also be entered in several of the events. This mermaid has beeu creating a sensation in recent meets on the coast, especially over the short routes. But a glance over Miss Durack's record shows that the American mermaids have a big job on their hands. Her records for 50 yards have been tied by Miss Dorfner at 26 seconds; she has % record of 49 4-5 seconds for 75 yards, a second faster than the best American record. At 100 yards her record of 1.06 is 2 3-5 seconds faster than MIbs Dorfner's fastest century. Her record of 2:57 for the 220 is 37 seconds faster than the best American mark. She has covered the quarter mile in 6:17; Miss Galligan's best time is 7:20. Her time far the half mile and mile Is 12:52 and 26:08, respectively. Miss Galligan has never done better than 15:15 and 31:18, respectively. But Miss Durack's records were made in 1913 and 1914 In home tanks at Sydney. That she had not improved since then is shown by the fact that she has never been able to beat her own records.
