It was a snappy exhibition throughout, the locals fielding like champions, and pulling off two of the most brilliant double plays seen here this season. For seven innings it was an even break, but in this, innings D.unn, who had been pitching great ball, weaken- ed a trifle, and the little Picker back- stop, who was put in for a pinch hit, made good with" a clean four-sacker over tho fence, making it C-l in favor of 'the locals. Dunn made one of the best strike-out records of the year, fanning twelve Saskaioonians, though light hits were chalked up on bis de- livery, while the best the Robins could do was to make five off Backoff.

A BLUFF The Cup Please, Says Taber, and LetK- bridge Laughs Taber advances a claim to the District Baseball League cham- pionship honors without further competition. The following com- munication to the League secre- tary, is self-explanatory: Taber, July B, 1011. Dr. J. H. Rivers, Secretary, District Baseball League, Lolkbrldgc, Alta. Dear our baseball sea- son now closed for Ihis year and in view of the fact that Ta- ber has the largest percentnge of the would ask lluy. you ar- range to send competition cup down as soon ns possible. Thanking you for the great in- terest that has been taken in am- ateur baseball, and wishing yon every I am, Yours very truly. TAB'ER BASEBALL CLUB, T. A. Simdal, Secy. It Is very evident from the ab- ove sratemenl that Taber's view of the -affair is this: That the schedule of the league having run Its fixeJ leaders of tho league at that Juncture should be awarded the championship--with- out any consideration for unlook- ed-for occurrences that have crop- ped up. This 'may or may no', be a correct view. It will take a de- cision of the league executive to establish the -right or wrong of Ta ber's claim. Lethbridge fails to see eye to eye with Tabur in the matter, and will play their postponed game wich Raymond next Saturday. This Is the contest on which the question is blnglng. Should Leth- bridgo win, a lie will he claimed with Taber, making ii post series or a single gnme necessary to es- tablish the leainie champions. At present Taber has six wins and two defeats, and LeUrbrldge five and two, being a percentage of .750 for tho former and .714 fov the latter. T.lher's curt message is accept- ed here with a laugh, being re-, cognized as merely a cute as it were. The wording of the message admits of no doubt and the ring of it is heavy -with-diplo-' macs'. A post series of games is al- most likely to be played.
