The ;game only went six innings, and the score was Ii to 3. It was one at the sharpest games of the season but at that it was lacking In those elements which inspires the ginger and pep. 'The fielding was par excellence, with, the exception of a conpte of" wild "heaves, and the pitch- ing of Phippen and Murphy, steady and strong It wasra dark and cold night, and this Is probably the secret of the players' listless they moved about like a bunch of dyspep- tic Chinks.

Wells, the visitor's home lun artist, was up again, and again he hit, it had all the appearance ot another homer until the old war horse, Jobh seen in a hot sprint to intercept its mad course No one thought that Josh vvould get under it and all held their breath, but he was there with the basket, taking it on the dead run, whipping around and shooting the pill to first and shooting dead Mr Farrel, who had taken the liberty to beat it toward second The side was out The locals scored another in .the last on a walk and hit by Seidenbeob er and then Umpire Wheeler called the, game. The fielding of the' locals was gilt- edge, one error being up against them Maeleod had several.

Inline past .this .race- has gone to England or France, and the best we have done is to run third This year, with Jones, Berna, Scott, Boiihag Ktviat, Tabor and Wikoff to pick fiom, we have a. better balanced team than any whicll can be started against us t Our principal points mil he scored In the running up to the 5000 meter race and in the pole the i mining high and running broad jumps, the hammer throw, the shot put and the hurdles In the Marathon lace we have an excellent chance, with one the best coipb of long distance men which ever wom our colors, I am looking forwaut to this race to prove that we best long distance afc well as the leaders in the other events. One thing that has been impressed on. the, athletes is that there must be no protesting against the decisions, no matter what happens, and I Wish to state that the Amerlcaa.tommitteo will not protest the 'entrj of John Flanagan in the hammei throw as a member of the Bnglish team, and no other man will be protested tor any reason Wo are going through this Olympiad without giving any country a chance to pass unfaioiable com ment on our sportsmanship, even though we sufter for it.
