The attendance has been good and the baseball has been high class. We will play against Brandon tonight, and though we trimmed Morrow twice when here, yet' Brandon was about as good us any of the visiting teams. Though we have the best hall team in the.league; yet we cannot expect to win every game. All that Carney suggested for the road was. GO pet- cent, of the games played, and that is pretty high.- V The Alberta teams wided 'into the eastern teams and' as the Albertan predicted weeks ago, trimmed them to a finish. played them 43 games in all, winning 3C and losing seven, which is pretty much of a record. Two weeks ago this morning the eastern teams came triumphantly into Alberta prepared for the best or the worst, but the worst be to split even with the Alberta teams. Winni- peg had just been dispossessed of first place and was just one game be- ihind Calgary. Regina .was even up for fourth place. Brandon was in fifth and Moose Jaw in seventh place. After three weeks of basebairin this prov- ince the entire aggregation goes back badly demoralized. Winnipeg has dropped 10 a poor fourth, with Leth- bridge .right on its trail. The other eastern teams are trailing at the tail end. It is doubtful if any ag- gregation of teams, ever had such a fate at any time or all time. Calgary lost but one game, and that to Winni- peg. It won ten games. Here thus the difference'in the standing in the two weeks. Here is a statement of the encounters and casualties. Be- low is given the victories and defeats and percentage of victories of the sanies played during the invasion of the eastern teams'here. It has a good and-healthy look for the teams. Here it is: Won Calgaryr 10 Edmonton ''....___ 10 Lolir's brigade failed to win a game at Kdmonton or Lethbridge, and though they played good ball, but one contest was marked up in. the win col- umn at Calgary. Only one game was won at Medicine; Mat which makes two on the trip. There is good reason for the repeat- ed losses iu the enemy's territory, and that is poor stick work. It has been a long time since Winnipeg has sup- ported such a batting team as the present one. With the season only nicely started, and when the men should be hovering around the- thi'ue hundred mark, most of them are under the. two hundred figures. The latest averages, which inchide.s all games up to yesterday shows only four men bat- Uug over 200 mark. Jack Beatty has the best average with .263, while Krueger has climbed up'the ladder, to 2C2. Jsbell is hitting about" the same, clip, whae Holmes has dropped to The fielding in the present trip was, not as good as fwhen at home, but it not be expected to be. How- ever, there is no fault to find in this department of, the game. Piper leads in runs, while Krueger and Beatty are the best base stealers with nine each. These two players are doing.the best all' round work of the bunch. Beers has only made three hits out of 20 ;ames, and .has not counted 'a bingle on the trip. There certainly is room for a new shortstop. The boys will be at home on Monday. EDMONTON BULLETIN The present series has been a very successful one for the Eskimos. They have won 15 games and lost 4, and tied another with Calgary.

Smith made a stand up walloping match of the affair and more than once stag- gered Stanley with chopp swings to 'he head. Furthermore he annexed all the honors of round one and had little worse than an even break in the second period. -WINNIPEG FREE PRESS That the Winnipeg Maroons are eitn- er a poor road team or tire not in the same class as the Western clubs'in the Western Canada Baseball league seems a certainty. The Winnipeg bunch lost the championship last year by being unable to win games while away from home, and though it was thought that with Lour behind them this year, they would at least make a favorable impression, they have not fared any better. return there will be a break of three days in the series. This is at Ihe last of the month when they will play during the fair in Calgary. There will be two games here on the holiday. When Brennan gets back in the game the infield of the Eskimos will be about .the fastest in the league, and the best throwing bunch. CALGARY NEWS "Strike Tew" -was again pulled by Umpire Smith last night and the pea- nut kid came back strong. "Smokers, Tew for he yelled.

Failing to do this In the allotted time Koxy Viij be from the league. "If men like Walters are al- lowed to do as they please we may as well quit playing the says the president. "Morrow, Hulen, Lohr and the majority of the other man- agers and their teams know how to conduct themselves; why can't Walters and his men do the same?

It is early yet, however, and, with the permission of Mr. Eckstorm, a rever- sal in conditions may result. Although" the .unjustifiable and un- expected ejection of Brooking from the game, had _much to do with the poor showing of Walters'; men in Alberta, the fact cannot be denied that several games were, lost through other rea- sons. For oTie thing the pitching staff does not shape tip strong enough.

REGINA LEADER Chorus of Regina fans: "We hate to lose games, but oh! you Eckstorm. the McFarland-Welsh fight an- other international fistic mntch goes into history as having an unfor- ending. The British sporting Press, which is a whole lot fairer than ttany American imagine, deplored the decision that made the bout a draw the full 20 rounds, but the Amer- Jcan won all the honor there was to he gained from the match. And as for a verdict against him would hardly have been as expensive for him the present situation. It was one thosc cases in which the referee, a above reproach, erred. wretchedly his decision, just as was the case Moran got all the worst he fought out on the Paci- flc Coast a few weeks ago. en i The trip that is now concluded has been a most disastrous one, not only to the Maroons, but to all the eastern teams. The locals have faired just as well, if not better, than the other clubs, but that is nor saying much. The Regina ball players can hardly be described as prodigals although they have been forced to feed on husks served a la Eckstorm on the western trip.

Regina got away to a good start, scoring four runs in the first two innings when Clanin was wild and his support shaky. After that the big twirler was boss of the situation. Sage pitched gilfcedge ball excepting in the seventh and ninth. Sage contributed largely to his own downfall by hitting the first man up.

Wolgast, -the'.'lightweight champion, last Friday night, at Mil- waukee, had a narrow escape from defeat at the hands of an old enemy. Jack Redmond, of that city. In the first four rounds he was working sav- agely and was landing almost at -will, with both hands. In the ever, there was a sudden change and the crowd was amazed at the manner in which Redmond appeared to be fight ing his way to a possible title The fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth ro.unds were almost Redmond's.

ESKIMOS WIN THE FIRST FROM WINNIPEG Winnipeg, June took the first game of the home series here by knocking Rossbach out of the box in the third inning when six runs were chased across 'the rubber. The Maroons got away to a good lead with two runs in the first, but Rossbach got wild in the third and after passing three as many men scored. Miller then relieved him and three more came across the plate. Outside of this spasm the game was fast. Features from a Winnipeg standpoint was a home run of Piper in the fifth when he. brought Edmunds in ahead of him. pitched grand ball and was given strong support in the pinches after the first round.

J.une Sharkey's ambition is to be champion heavy weight of the world. He made this statement today and looked fit enough to battle tor the title. Sharkey has been reading the accounts of John- son's lack of training and his craze for fast automobiling, and he thinks July 4 the colored heavy weight will injure himself, and he wants to take a third crack at bis old- time opponent. For the past month he has been working daily in the gymnasium and has also been out on the road. All he asks is. three weeks' preparation, and he will prove to the satisfaction of ilie public that he is capable of de- feating either Jeffries or Johnson. Sharkey will be at the ringside on 4, and will challenge the winner. He will have a friend with him, who will put up a certified check for 000 and 25 crisp bills to bind a match with the victor. 10 injurtom turpentine.
