COOMBS ONLY COME BACK Jack Coombs ts one of tho few baseball players who ever did a successful comeback and is tho real pitching Nemesis of the New York Giants. When Brooklyn beat New York in ten innings recently at the Polo grounds, the champion Dodgers gave 'CoombB his eleventh straight victory over McQrnw's men. Coombs won his first game from the Giants in the world's series of 1911, conquering tho flighty Mathewson. Coombs was'sent back agulnst tlio Giants in the fifth game, but injured, his groin and was forced to quit, with the score. 3 to 3 iu the uintu iuuliig. \ TRAP SHOOT CUP At the special shoot at the Traps yesterday afternoon, the chief event wrt a team shoot between New Dayton and Lethbridge for the "New Dayton Cup." The team from the south was too strong for the local boys and New Dayton won by a margin of six targets. Capt. Kessler of New Dayton, missed only one target in hU 25. The regular Thursday shoot will be held this evening as usual. RESERVE JUDGMENT. London, July 18.-The privy council yesterday resumed hearing of tho Toronto railway company's appeal for a conviction against the overcrowding of oars. After hearing argument by Sir Joha.Sitton, Judgment was reserved. It would soem that baseball has sufficient ^roubles with the war and other influences working against it; but the worst blow in years has fallen, says Hugh -Fullerton. That the club owners in the major leagues face a danger which I have been striving to point out for a dozen years. That danger is the gamblers. There Is no doubt in my mind if there ever was a time in Chicago's history when the hand-booking on racing was as extensive as is the booking on baseball games today. Much more money was bet on races, but this piking betting rolls up to an immense total, so great, in fact, that one man I know, who operates on a moderate scale, told me he handles nearly $7,000 a week. Invade Ball Parks Until last season tho gamblers in Chicago were content to work downtown In saloons, cigar stores and pool rooms. Last year they invaded tho ball parks, especially the Cub park, and this year there is a well defined betting section where the gamblers congregate and draw bettors. In' Boston this evil has existed ever since tho sport started. It has been a recognized industry. The gamblers are known ,and the tact that they have powerful political backing also is known-which may account for the fact that the loud promises \o wipe them out never have been exe cuted. Gamblers Are Protected So strong is the Boston gambling combine that one friend of aaine, an outsider, who attempted to operate there, was ordered out of town by political powers, not because he was a gambler, but because the rival gamblers insisted upon it. He is operating In another city now, and is doing a.tromendous business. In Pittsburg there has been another hotbed. of gamblers, which is in the grundatiinds, and which goes on almost unmolested. In Cleveland gambling became rampant last year. In Detroit the profession found one of the best fields because of the disorganized condition of the entire city, especially the police force. The gamblers have not worked so openly in the stands, but they are accumulating their crowds in two sections at present. Such conditions are certain to result in uprisings such as took place in Boston. They are even more certain to result eventually in the corruption of players. Queeriy, the powers that rule baseball have thought the best remedy for this gambling evil is whitewash -on which it thrives. Baseball and gambling can not prosper side by side, whether in partnership or not- and when gambling, hacked by politics comes in, good night, TO LOCAL TOSSERS New Dayton 14, Lethbridge 11. Fans got a run a cent last night at the merry-go-round staged by tho Lethbridge and New Dayton teams in their first clash of the season on Lethbridge grounds. Fourteon runs seems to be the popular number for the visitors. Something less than fourteen seoms to be tho limit for the localB. It was "sum" game. In fact it was a question in higher mathematics for the overworked scorer. The first inning started out as though it might be a real game. That was just a teaser for the fans. The second inning proved that they had been laboring under a delusion. New Dayton scored five and Lethbridge camo back with three. From then on it was a procession and a conglomeration, with much agony and pains in the region of the liver. At the end of the fourth the score stood 8 to G against us. During that timo "Bondie" worked as if he were trying to hand tho game to New Dayton on a silver plat-tor. Green, shortstopping for a change, couldn't get his glimmers on the pill, wliilo Evans let one trickle through his logs In right field in tho second, which was good for a single if he had picked it up, but wasn't retrieved until it was as good as a home run. In the first of the fifth, Bond was given a seat on tho bench, Walsh camo in to catch while Evans went to third, the right garden being awarded to the attention of Dunsworth. For throe innings Lethbridge played shutout ball, but Snow had received such horrible support in the first four stanzas that he couldn't hold the fort any longer. Once more there was no relief pitcher in sight, and seven hits combined with a wild heave to second let in six runs. Gorrill threw his arm out in the seventh, and Johnston, a portsider, took his place. Ho had something on the ball and Lethbridge was blanked In the last two frames. At the end of tho seventh it was Lethbrldge's game 11 to 8. Snow had no license in the world to loso the game, and would have won hands down had his support fielded with about half the pep he did. During the game he accepted 12 fielding chances without an error and struck out four men. Snow's work was great dope for the fans, who gave him a hand on a dozen different occasions. Snow is likoly to be the regular box- NOBLEMEN CIGARS Made for those who want the best.9* NOW SOLD IN THREE SIZES t Superiores- 2 Invincibles- for Coronas- 25c. s. davis <& sons limited. montreal.

Bertram, Dundas, Out., from wounds, Is report ed in advices to his undo, Brlk-Qen Sir Alexander Bertram. "How much is it? One, two, three, four, five, and five are ten, and ten makes twenty dollars. When do you fight again, Bonny." Such was the partial scolding that Benny Leonard, the new lightweight champion fighter of the world, received from his father, one night five years ago when Benny returned to his East Side home after boxing Young Cross a six-round no-decision bout in Newark, N.J. The boy, who was destined later to wrest tho world's title from Freddie Welsh has won his biggest purse up that time time, $20 in bills. Had the amount been the usual |5 it is probable that Benny would have stopped his ring career right then and there and Welsh would still be champion. But ?20 is $20, even in the best regulated of lower East Side families, and Fnther Loiner was anything but a poor business man. From that Herman was fighting at Billy A.C., and Benny his little pals made up their minds to see the bout -free. Half a dozen of them were pressing close up against a side window of the club house to get a better view of Herman in action when suddenly the window gave way and Benny and his friends crashed through and into the club house. Gibson, who had been annoyed before by such boyish pranks, made a dive for the scared bunch and grabbed the one nearest to him. It was a lucky grab, for the boy who struggled in the Gibson grip was Benny Leiner, alias Benny Leonard, coming lightweight champion. Retaining his hold on the seat of Benny's pants, Gibson said: "Wbatv do you want to break the windows for? If you wanted to see the fight why didn't you come around to the gate? What do you want, anyway?" "I want to fight," said Benny Leiner, which same remark has been made before, but never with more earnestness. "Who did you ever lick?" from Gibson. "I beat up eve/y kid on my block, and I can lick a lot of those fellows I've seen fighting in your club." To condense history, Gibson, finally time on Benny kept on fighting with increasing regularity and success, until today the most admired object of art in the wide world In the Leiner | agreed to put Benny on the following home is a portrait of a pair of box-.week in a four-round preliminary ing gloves or anything that savors of the boxing profession. Benny went on to trace his gradual ascent up the ladder and recounted the battles he had fought with the champions of Sixth, Seventh and Eighth streets, and he was always victorious and then the Leiner family moved up to the Bronx, and with the change in residence came the change in Benny Leiner's name. Benny was about 15 when he moved, and one of tho heroes he worshipped devoutly was a certain Kid Her man, a third-rate boxer at the local clubs. One night toward the end ot bout with Mickey Finnegan. Pete Prunty, who was announcing, asked Benny his full name and was told, but Pete made a mistake and announced that "Benny Leonard" would meet Finnegan, so Leonard tt was, and has been ever since, and Benny knocked out Mickey in three rounds. Leonard' made good so rapidly that he was soon boxing in the main bouts. Joe Shrugue and Frankie Flaming were the only two boys to defeat Leonard-Strrugue in March 1912, and1 Fleming in June, 1913. Both fights) were stopped by the referee to save Benny from a knockout and Leonard admits it. STANLEY WHITNEY, of Lethbridge, whose fancy roping was one of the features of the Medicine Hat Stampede.
