O.-E. Down went the CalHes by a score of two goals to nothing at the Athletic Park last night before a crowd of over three hundred football enthus- iasts. The Overseas did the trick hut it mirst be admitted .they were lucky in having won the toss, as they had a; stroug gale behind them m the first half of the during which period they made their tallies. It was only after three minutes' play at the opening of the that Joyce head- eti Uie first goa.1 past ilclutyre, who was well watched by the opposition, and nad no possible chance to save. The wind was rather friendly iuclin- ed towards the Overseas, who kept the play at the Callles1 end, and try as they, liked the Scots could make little headway. Not content with their lead of one goal, the Overseas continued to harass the Scots, whose goalkeeper was ag.iin called upon to extend himself, only to be beaten .a Uttlp fatPr deceptive shot from Beinbridge which he could only partially stop. After a series of ex- changes play was transferred to the Overseas end, but the Tbig defence were right on Uie firing lin-e s and saved the situation. The Callies, with determination written on their fates, came right back at Sumner, but lbe> were again driven back. Play. at. this point was not 'by any of means interesting on ac- count of the gale, although the Cal- lies were fighting hard to reduce the lead. It was quite apparent that the Scots were bent on a purely defen- sive ganie, although it. must be con- ceded that in point of combination play they were just a bit better, than their redoubtable .opponents. The of the Scots obviously troubling the Overseas who, how- ever, succeeded in keeping the en- amy at bay. The air tight- defence of .the Scots now beldi the leaders in. check. Just towards the close c-f. this period Knight and Winning shone reaplendently in as nice a piece of football as one could wish to see but their efforts were frustrated by the opposing defence who would not yield one iota. Exciting On resuming the Callies set to work to wipe out the Overseas lead and aftei some spirited play m front of Sumner. Tennaut sent in a light- ning shot which missed by inches. OPPONENTS HAVE AVERAGED 2.5 RUNS AND HITS PER GAME Rube- Marquard pitched the Giants into the National league pennant last season and apparently is out to repeat. to date the gianl left-hander hasten 12 straight games, and lost none. Since, the Qt season manager MeGraw has worked ilar- quard every fourth day, and the man who cost the Giants ?11.GOQ and went two ye.ars- without earning a nickle for tha'.team has fulfilled every pre- diction of the little Napoleon. Christy says Marquurd was useless for two years because he joined the Giants press-agented as the highest priced pitcher on earth, and went to the firing iine hi response to John T. Brush's request and ngainst McGraw's judgment before he wai ripe He lost his first game and with it his confidence and it -required two hard seasons to regain his stride. Marquard started as a semi-pnifes- aional hi Cleveland, Ohio, aa Richard de Marquis He was nicknamed Rube" JIarquard, and it His first notable work was with Indian- apolis, for which team he won the American Association pennant in 1903 and was" sold for the record price as the result. ''Biggest Swindle In Baieba Marquard .was referred as the 'biggest swindle in and lite stock valued oa a par.with a certain yellow product that helped mate -Mes- sina famous. Today Giant fans call him "Richard the Laon Hearted." nst yciu was unbeat- able. He established a league record for strikeouts and shared honors wltli Jiathewson. Now .he has taken the place held by "Big Six" for years in the regard of fandom. Marquar'd's great nsaet .is his "smoke." He has terrific speed which he has learned to control, and with it an "assortment of curve's, such as left- handers only ever seem to acquire. When iMcGraw was being roasted to a nice brown for keeping Marquard he said, "I'll keep'him because I know he is 'there.' Any youngster with the 'stuff' he has needs When he does come ho will be a And Jiarquard has shown McGraw was right. The one-time failure is the great sensation of baseball today. He com- menced right where he left off last fall and has won steadily. He has not pitched any one- or two-hit games nor established any wonderful strikeout records, but nine hits are'the most made off him and but once haa he given more than four bases on balls. Marquard is fortunate in having the Giants play splendid ball behind him. The team hits and steals bases when he is on the mound, as a glance at the statistical table proves. la 11 games NewyYork has made 81 runs for 106 hits and stolen IS bases, while their opponents have made .25' runs for 61 hits. The Overseas -were now having a merry time keeping the Scots out, and excitement amongst the crowd rose to fever-heat, but the gallant and impregnable nature of the Over- seas defence.-kept them out. The Scots could 'not shake the hoodoo rOU' LL find coolness and comfort in these 2 Piece Suits. They are fine English Flannels and Serges. Tailored expressly for hot days light enough to keep you fine enough to make you look your bedt in the new English with natural shoulders. nils McKELVIE McGUIRE. and there was no getting past the opposing defence. Brennan tried Sumner with a burning shot, hut Snmner was right there, and-tipped the ball over the bar .at the expense of a corner, which however proved fruitless. A minute or two later Lin- nmg sent in scorcher but' again the saved aimpst mirac- ulously, Matters "were .now .looking blue for the Callies who fought like ivild men but without success. Thom- son of Oie Overseas after cavorting n mid'Held, beat the opposing for- ward hut it resulted in nothing vrhile later Knight for the Scots shot fast and sure like a rocket, hut he forgot to reckon on Sumner, who saved brilliantly. Linning a few minutes later came along on: the run and shot only missing "a score by a hair's breadth. The Callies fought gaanely and played excellent, football, hut they were beaten by a team which, although not revealing the filler touches of toothall perhaps, just had the happy knack of resisting effect- nelj any attempts on_ the part of its opponents .to and atter all that is what counts. If the Callies had 'won the toss the result would have beon different, but of course you can never tell. At all events it was an interesting game and both teams never let UP until the whistle blew, while the crowd put on the finishing touches by cheering their favorites. The teams were as follows: goal; Bamier- man backs; Ness, Whyte and Brennan, half backs; Knight, Llnnlng, Glon, .Tcnnant and McMur- trie, forwards. 'Horns and Paterson. backs; Cauldwell. Mul- lon and Hallierslon, half backs; Bern- bridge, Thompson, Brciinan, Slmm and Joyce, forwards. J, Gurr acted as referee and kept the players well in hand, while K. Tennant and J; Bannerman made ilclent linesmen respectively .for tho Callies and Overseas.
