Ward advanced a base on -a bad throw by the pitcher to first, Grayson came along and cut a hot one through- the pitcher's box which Short-stop Beers attempted to intercept, but between his legs it went and rolled on merrily to the outfield, while Ward waltzed in. Lezic scratched and put Grayson on second'. Mackin popped up to Edmunds. Head place a nice liner between short and third and Grayson scored. That was all just then. Chick fanned ond. Six ruas.

Old-timer Phil Lezie was back in the game and though he has not hit his old stride yet he was there good and sufficient with the proper mater- ial for lifting the scalp 'of the enemy. He started out a trifle wild but when he found himself slipping he gathered himself together, vanished' that non- chalence smile and took on his fam- ous cold-storage stare and the rest was simple. He had it on his opponent slab artist forty ways. His work was steadier and bore superior confidence. Lczie struck out eight of the would-be hitters and walked four, two of whom he might have as easily fanned or al- lowed to hit wrong if he cared very much. For Beers and Rossbach ting the ball back to the infield and Krueger raced on to third. Lohr scored Krueger by putting a grounder between Mackin's legs. Isbell fanned, and in his last swipe bit Lynch's mit, causing Joe to drop the ball. Umpire Longenecker immediately call ed Isbell out for interfering, but Lynch didn't hear him and threw the hall to .first, which- unfortunately went wide, and Lohr was allowed to score without trouble. Beatty then retired the side. Our two came in the following Nice Trimming Medicine Hat June Cham- pions had a night off field this evening and gave Pitcher Wilson poor support eight costly- errors being mnde. Poor work on the bases con- tributed to the loss, two men being caught napping on the bags. Hein- rich's three bagger scored three of the runs. The score: Brandon 7 1 Medicine Plat 8 8 Heinrich and.Cooper; Nelson and Davidson. Umpire Smith. were considered .the easy marks of the evening. The visitors' pitcher was not so the game and that horrible beating for the majority of the errors made by his mates were hideous in the ex- treme, while the support given Lezie was almost gilt-edge. This team of ours is made for hit- ting and there is sure to be'an argu- ment no matter what the opposition might do, and we are also there with something in the base running line too. Dudley and O'Hayer are built ex- pressly for speed and are bound to go. Last night, thej' rapped tne ball, hit- ting thither and yon> skated ihe bases like sand flies mad with heat and stood the Maroons on their heads. How it Was Done. i The famous Larry Piper was the first man to brave the lire. He walk- ed. Krueger next up was an easy out. Then Lohr, hit to right for a "single and Piper halted at third. Isbell and Beatty, the following swatsmen, were duck soups and the danger was over. We went right after Winnipeg at the start Mackin coolly took a walk Head bounded a nasty one at Holmes which got away from the latter. Both safe, Mackin advancing to second. Chick dribbled another down gase line and got safely through.Bases full. Lynch fanned. Dudley smashed a hard one into Lohr's territory which the little Winnipeg Manager picked out of the air with a bare-hand spec- tacular catch. Mackin scored on the throw in. O'Hayer hit to Holmes and Head was forced at third. j Nothing remarkable happened in the manner. Lezie lined a nice drive .be- tween short and third. Mackin pop- ped up a fly to Beers. Head got a charity. Chick walked. Bases full. Lynch then dribbled' to Rossback, who fumbled, allowing runners to all go safe and Lezie to score. Dudley next hit to Krueger, forcing Lynch out at second, but in the meanwhile Head skated home. O'Hayer finished it. BROOKIN'S CASE MAKES TROUBLE President jt W, of the Regina Club, In the City Regarding the Decision of C J, Eckstorm Prcs. Smith, of the Regina baseball club, was in the city yesterday to interview C. J. Eckstorm in regard Taking long chances on the bases spoiled good chances of scoring in the sixth by the localites. Ward and Grayson were caught stealing r third and second respectively. Winnipeg was easy lor us in this innings. Two more --.were added to the Min- ers' pile of scores in the seventh. Af- ter Mackin and Head were easily" dis- posed of, Chick got safely on first Rugby practice to-night at seven o'clock, sharp, at Mounted Police Barracks. A full turn out' is re- quested. Winnipeg looks just as easy to Min- ers this year as they did last. H you want to see a fine likeness to Hans Wagner, go down to the hall park and take a look at Ed- munds, the Maroons' -backstop. Umpire Longenecker made a ques- tionable decision on Isabell's steal to second last night, but outside of that he was good, although the fans bel- lowed on some of his rulings on balls and strikes.

The man- hind first for a single and Chick'flew player with Regina, who has been de- barred from the Western Canada League, by order of the president of the League, because Medicine Hat and other clubs have objected to playing with Brookins on account of supposed negro blood in his veins. Mr. Smith has many objections to the course the-president took in the case. Principal among them are the facts that Mr. Eckstorm, he says, did not consult the Regina club in the matter, and that the case of Brook- ins was not' thoroughly investigated, and Mr. Eckstorm took radical ac- tion without' sufficient foundation. The Regina president says he will push the case to the highest tribunal to show that Brookins is not a col- ored man in any particular, and Mr. Smith thinks he can procure conclus- ive proof in support of his plea. He has received word from the Catholic College in St. Louis, which it is claimed Brookins attended, verifying the player's color as that of white with Indian strain. A prominent sporting writer of St. Louis also has written to Regina in support of Brookins. Mr. Eckstorm will .be asked by 'the Regina club to reconsider his decision upon further investigation.

Lethbridge the now famous Brookins' n I n T Yf__l_ T-fc I. stick-handlers journey to High River, j affair: What the ultimate outcome will be is i As a result of a message received yesterday from J. H. Farrell, secre- tary of the National Association of baseball clubs, the Regina club ac- cepted the ruling of President Eck- storm, and dropped third baseman Brookins from the team. Mr. Farrell did not declare Brook- ins ineligible; he simply left the matter in the hands of the West- em Canada League president. The matter "wilh not be dropped by the Regina club, but in the meantime it is forced to accept the ruling. Mr. Farrell's message, which is rather indefinite, read as'follows: L. Smith, Sec., Regina Baseball Club. "Brookins case referred to league .president for decision as it is an affair involving two clubs, and should be league presi- dent, who is on the ground. "J. H. FARREL, Sec'y." Didn't Understand Situation. It is evident that Mr. Farrell was not in possession of the facts of the case when.he sent this message. It was received in reply to a wire sent to" him a meeting of the local directors. At this meeting it was decided that the club would insist on playing Brookins unless he was barred by Farrell. President Smith was deputed to go to Medicine Hat and a telegram was sent. to Eckstorm asking him to meet Mr. Smith there. To this Lethbridge man replied: Eckstorm's Careful Deliberation. "J. W.

Up to then it was anyone's game, 1-1, but as. usual the Callies wore them down and finally beat them by 4-1. There were three penalties given, which is quite a big number for one game. The penalty rule should not be abused and I think that at least one of Tues- day's penalties should not have been given. Although a foul' is made in the penalty area, it does not neces- that all the games should be given to him. .He will get stale, and then the crowd begin to accuse him of un- fairness. When one man has to rcE- crce two, three or four games in one week, and that continues week after week, what is the result? He gets heartily sick Q[ it, and it is only like- ly that he will do so. I am sure there are all kinds of men who un- derstand the game that would make good tjeferces, if they will only come forward and hand in their names to T. Hall. I see by the paper that Mr. Arnold has again been appointed ref- eree in the two games scheduled for this week. The draw for thfc Wright Charity Shield took place on Friday last and resulted as follows Callies vs West- minsters, Y.M.C.A. vs But why were the S.O.E. and Britannias given a bye. Only one of those teams are entitled to enter the next round Then a bye should be given, but that it is against all rules that two teams should be passed into the next round when there' is an even number like be drawn from. 1 would like to hear other people's opinion in this matter. There wil be just the same number of matches played, but I contend that either thc S.O.E. or the Britts are entering the second round without being entitled to do so. They should play for thei promotion just the same as the oth cr four clubs are doing. A good game may be expected to night between the Britts and the S O.E. I fully expect the S.O.E. t win, but not by a very big margin For Thursday's game I would no like to predict a winner. The West year, the Brookins' affair Is a closed incident. "C. J. ECKSTORM. "Lethbridge, June 3." Countermanded It _ The message from Secretary .Far- rell was received after five o'clock on Friday night, and previous structlons sent to Manager Walters insist on playing Brooking immediately countermanded. As a result he was forced to put crippled team on the field at "the last minute. Was This the Reason. According to information recelv- ed from Manager 'Walters a threat was made in Lethbridge that Brook- ins would be forced out of J the game, and that its was a matter of spite. It came about this way. Knowing -that Chesty Cox was about to be deposed as manager Roxey induced him to'release first baseman O'Hayer to Regina, the former Moose Jaw player 'being an- xious to play on Walters' team. The Lethbridge club learned of this and demanded that O'Hayer be turned back to the Miners. Walters re- fused, he says, and one o! the Leth- bridge club directors made 'the statement that "he would see ,that the nigger did not play any more." And from this you may draw your own conclusions. The above statement simply exploits one or two truths wliich we have been unable to fathom satisfactorily. ''Wal- ters' letter shows thai Chesty .Cox and he were in league.with one an- other previous, to Chesty's release rom the club. Cox denied to the ierald that he let out O'Hayer for purpose of bsing picked up by the Regina club. Notice the sentence n the paragraph which speaks'about 'alters' letter, which reads: "Knowing that Chesty Cox was bout to be deposed as managar, oxey induced him to release first asernan O'Hayer to Regina, the form- Moose Jaw player' being aiiviuus o-play on-Walters' team." Providing this letter is Iru3. a de- ided "black eye" is registereod in all oncerned in the miserable deal and ontemptible tactics. They are Cox, Falters, O'Hayer and the Regina lub, if they sympathize with Walters n what he has done. This is the most effective way to reate dissension in the ranks of the Vestern Canada league
