Macleod, June 3.-Macleod hammered through a victory over Lethbridge here today in a Southern Alberta Baseball League fixture by a score of 10 to 9 in a close and hot contest. It was a mixed exhibition, neither team playing what might be termed ftellar ball, but nevertheless it was a thousand per cent, better article than was produced at Lethbridge May 24th, by the same antagonists, when Lethbridge copped the victory by an f.leventh hour rally. Baohelder pitched (or Macleod and was hit freely enough by the hard hitting nine from Lethbridge, but even as lie got bis assortment pounded 'Powell, 2b. !the visiting boimen goi theirs just a ; Farral, cf. trifle harder,, the hits generally being consistent with the score. Meyers led for Lethbridge in the pitching department, and gave way to Josh Moore in the seventh. Moore should have bean called to the slab earlier, nd the visitors' chances of carrying off the day's honors would have been greater. The support given the pitchers on both sides was nothing to write home about, but there is a good excuse to be advanced in their favor, Hie grounds were rutty and generally inimical to perfect playing. Lethbridge led the way for the first three innings, scoring two in the second and one in the third, while Macleod gathered in a single tally in CANADIAN FIGHTER HELD DOWN McFARLAND Peru, Ind..

June 4.-The championship pocket billiard match between Alfred Deoro, challenger for the title, and Edward Ralph, the title holder, which was scheduled to end last night, was not finished owing to an argument between the players and will be decided on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights of next week in a 600-polnt match. The argument arose over the failure of Deoro to call a ball which he afterwards made with -the score favoring Ralph, 587 to 583. The referee decided that Deoro dirt not call the ball, and afterwards declared that he did. LEACH CROSS PUT IT OVER K.O.BROWN Latter Made Strong Finish but Got Shade Worst of Mill New York, June 3.-Leach Cross defeated Knockout Brown in a ten-round bout with which Madison Square Garden was reopened tonight as a boxing institution. Cross weighed in at 133{ at the ringside and Brown as 2 pounds lighter. Brown had the better of the first two rounds, the third was even. Cross took the next six and Brown finished strong with slightly the better of the last round Brown played to the body with lefts, using his right occasionally to the head while Cross jabbed with his left and used right upper cuts. Cross scored two knock-downs, one in the fifth with the left to the face and a right swing to the jaw, and again in,the seventh, but Brown was up in an instant fighting back hard, and in the tenth round rallied remarkably with clever infighting.

Although Pincher drew with Taber on a former occasion the score tonight, taken ; in conjunction wi.h the drawn game, | does not mean that Taber and Pfnch-er are equally matched. However that may be, the game was a most interesting one from a spectator's point of view, and although errors crept in Bellevue Hand the Coleman Soccerists a Goose Egg SCORE WAS 3 TO 0 Coleman, June 3.-Coleman played their fourth gam* in the Crow's Nest aeries at Bellevue, on Saturday, losing by a score of 3-0. The absence of McGeckie, left full back, occasioned a ahake-up in the regular line-up, which in part accounted for the result, as the forwards could not work together to advantage, having no work-outs in preparation. It was freely admitted that Bellevue showed higher class, playing their opponents "off their t>9t." But for the' good work of Coleman's half back line, the score would probably have been larger. Bellevue'a defence was Invincible. Two of the goals were scored by Varley, and the o&ther by Huttdn, both Utside wing men. The line-up: Coleman-D. Sudworth, goal; Mooro and Fraser, backs; Roughead, Jack-on and. Easton, -half backs; R. Sudworth, Holmes, Kellock, Emerson and Stothers, forwards. Bellevue-Bradley, goal; B. Dug-dale and T.

DRI6COLL KNOCKED FRENCH CHAMP OUT London, June 3.-Jem Dris-coll, the featherweight champion of England, tonight knocked out the French champion, Jean Poesy. The fight, which was before the National Sporting Club, went twelve rounds. Pincher Creek Eleven Triumphed Over Blairmore Coleman Walloped the Crow's Nest Nine on both sides, a very high class of ball was exhibited. Duggan for Taber pitched a fair game (or the first five innings, Gray then coming in. Until the sixth innings play was fairly even, both sides playing hard, and the basos were never full. In the sixth, .however, Taber succeeded in getting in the first score, A. Lee crossing the plate on a three-base hit by Roy Lee.~ In the- seventh Taber crossed again, Oray;�acjDring on a home run. In the '.eighth Pitcher sent a n.'an over the'plate on an error at third, and for a while things became interesting, especially as in the last of the ninth Pincher succeeded in getting one man on first on a safe hit. Gray, kowever, struck out two men and the third was' thrown out. TABER AB R H PO A p Lee, A., c........ Lee, R., lb.......

Pincher won by 3 goals to 1. The match took place on the athletic grounds at the west of the town, the ball being kicked off at 2:30. Blairmore chose kicking eastwards as both a bright sun and a strong wind were to be faced from the west. This fact did not greatly assist the visitors as they missed a dosen fine opportunities of scoring. The high wind spoiled good ball as the sphere kept bounding outside at least half of the time The first goal went to Blairmore in 2u minutes and the second to Pincher Creek 10 minutes later. The end of the half found them a tie. The home team scored two minutes alter game was recommenced. They did it again in SS minute* more, then missed goal after goal with reckless wilfulness, the wind playing such a splendid defence that the brfll was In dangerous territory for the visitors throughout the entire half with the exception of an occasional spasm on the part of I what is a fairly good forward line on Coleman, June 3.-Coleman played baseball at Crowsnest, B. C, winning by a score of 14-6. The first five innings of the game were interesting, fast plays being pulled off on both sides.

Newcomer Came Up From Rear and Won Big Event of Blue Bonnets Meet Montreal, June 3. - The holiday helped the Blue Bonnets attendance today and about 6,000 witnessed the races. The track was dry but not dusty, and weather conditions were The steeplechase was the feature and1 was won by Newcomer, who was under restraint until the honr�s stretch, but then passed High Hal, who was carrying more weight and did not last. Lenape fell at the third jump, Jimmy Lane threw his rider at the thirteenth, and at the eighth Gun Cotton lost his rider. Giddy Girl refused the tenth and at the twelfth fAgii Hal went in his knees, losing a couple of lengths. The favorites failed to come over in the majority of the races, Priscillan's victory in the fourth at 10 to 1 being a notable exception. Cock-O'-the-Walk surprised the crowd iu the second, when he ran away from the field and won without ever being seriously challenged. � * * S. O. E. HAVE TO WIN The rivals of old play football tonight at the Athletic Park. The S. O. E. must defeat the Callies on this occasion, or they are out of the city league championship running. Raymond, .June 4.-Last Saturday the Raymond junior baseball team journeyed to Magrath to play a return game with the lads of the Garden City. They drove over in two buggies, returning that evening, the game was a very fast one, and again victory crowned the efforts of the local artists. The score was 23>to 29, but this by no means tells the story of the game,'for it was really a clean speedy exhibition of ball. A large crowd was \in attendance, and much enthusiasm was displayed. K". Mathe-son was the umpire and managed the game very fairly. The Raymond team consisted of the following players : Jones, catcher ; Nalder, pitcher'; Stevens, -first base1; Strong, second base ; Wasden, short-stop ; -Palmer, third base ; Fisher, right field ; O. j Wasden, centre field ; Harris, left field. This is an exceptionally strong | aggregation, and they wish to extend a challenge to any nine south of | Lethbridge, under the ago of fourteen ' years. Next Saturday the Magrath team will probably be over, to Raymond to play off the third game of the Rajmond-Magrath series. This game will likely attract a large crowd of fans.
