Without favor or pre- judice I believe .the New Yorks look a little the stronger. If Marquard and Raymond continue to go along in any sort of form the "Jinks" are the favor- ites and there isn't much question about that. But do not overlook Frank Chance. He is a wise baseball man, despite anything you may have heard to the contrary and said Chance is never asleep at the switch. Man for man his club doesn't look so sturdy as some of the others and injuries have hurt it a great, deal this year, but the Cubs have been drilling along in the same old victorious way until they have impressed their ability even upon doubters. vadors who were walloped for seven j discovered and the Garden- j 200. ers had a merry time of it. knocking i the crest-fallen "Spud'! all over the! garden. At no time was he a mystery. It was undoubtedly his off day. but the Magrath warriors cared little for this and had a s-weet game of swat- ting at the lad's expense. The game was a splendid exhibi- tion of ball, and was characterized b'y steady. fielding, crisp team, work, and heavy slugging. Grey, Magrath's new j twirler, was a marvel. His snaky benders were too much for the Card- ston aggregation who failed to locate! -them, striking wildly. From the first to the last stage of the game he pitched a winning game for the locals striking out twelve men. Ott, an- other old-timer ressurrected from the j plow field, did the" receiving stunt' and is deserving of a medal for the manner in which, he clawed the hot ones, high -ones, low ones, etc., was simply a phenomenon. One remark- able feature of the game was the gigantic slugging of the locals. They batted like demons, and the Cardston lads seemed bewildered at times.

Cricket and TENNIS CHALLENGE FROM SPRING COULEE one home run of the game was made by Coffee, Magrath's right fielder, who selected an easy one from "Spud's" assortment and clouted the pill with such force that he had plen- ty of time to cover all four sacks.

DETROIT CASTOFF DIGS UP jeer is gaining a strong following, but (never will win the place in the jhearts of the American people that has won. Cricket But a change has come over the 'feeling in England. T.he influx of Am- 'erican business houses, which carry jwith them many native employees, ihas stirred up things across the pond, land there has come a demand for base 'ball. Taking this as his cue. Charles ,Spink of St. Louis, now is in England 'and with all things equal, will en- jdeavor to form a league and ascer- !tain if it can be made a paying pro- 'position. His efforts will be watch- Jed with interest, for the game was .given a cool reception years ago jwhen two professional teams of this Philadelphia has a strong aggregation but not of pennant quality, accord-- ins to the eastern writers. Alexander is a pitching find and Earl Moore a great twirler. Dooin is? as good as they make them behind the bat and the infield and outfield positions are filled satisfactorily, but nobody can see the Phillies for the flag. However, they are certain, so it to make the going tough for the otner aspirants and are assured of a' place well near the top rung of the National ladder. Pittsburg is the other contender and the Pirates have been going at good speed this year, but appear erratic. They haven't the pitching some of the others get and even their best hurlers are inclined to be in-and-outers. But looking over the four of them, can you name the winner? Making Good at Last FLYNN Takes Cold Shivers When Home-Talent Referee is Spoken of Detroit and Philadelphia seem the only ones in the American League] with a chance to bring home the bacon. The Tigers got away in the lead' and got away so far it didn't appear possible for any team to overtake. The Athletics haven't accomplished it yet -but Connie Mack's men are playing wonderful ball right now and bid fair to overhaul the Tigers before the sea- son is much older. Thenceforward it will be a light to the death between two great baseball managers and two sterling aggregations of baseball ability and talent. Because of their performance last year when they won the Amer- ican League pennant and afterward snatched the world's bunting from the Cubs the" Athletics will be the favorites for this 'year's rag if they can suc- ceed in getting on even terms with before long. The Chicago Wliite Sox have proved surprisingly strong. Jimmy Calla- han and his aggressive ball playing methods have done wonders with the .Sox.

Walsh. They are likely to finish right along with the leaders. The Boston .club is another strong member and some folks profess to believe Hal Chase and Russell Ford will prove enough to carry -the Yankees over the ditches to first place, but that is a little too much to expect. Cleveland, Washington and St. Louis seem hopelessly out of it. Can you pick the winner in the American?

June Informed j yesterday that John Kling refused to play any longer with the Boston club, to whom he was traded on Saturday, Cub players attributed Klines action to a long-cherished determination to play only with the Chicago club.
