BIG PRICE FOR LACROSSE PLAYER K r >T: v: _ t S-P-O-R-TS kj A vy iv i kj DISTRICT FOOTBALL TONIOfT 6Jfl J INDIANS WON FAST ANDJLOSE GAME the of 5-4 Baseball Fixture at the Park Last Night; Indians' Sixth Victory Good Pitching arid Fielding The Cardston-Lethbridge- game of Coronation Day went down on the lo- cal records as the premier game'of all amateur performances at the Ath- letic.Park. In fact it was .equal in every way to anything of a professlon- il character seen thwe.' It was a keen contest but it had very little on the tilt .of last evening between the Maroons and the Indians in which the latter, carried1 the day and made it their sixth win of the season. The concluded 54, and the gfime went the full route of nine rounds, j Not a very great crowd was present, though everyone anticipated that the game would be a good one. Probablj the tear-shedding aspect of the clouds kept many away. However, those who were on deck had nothing but favor- able comment to pass on the exhibi Trigger and Trap letting anything get away from him niglit. He was after this one like a house afire. He grabbed it with a mighty leap and a rush, elec- trifying the crowd-and standing the .Marooiis on their heads as it were. Getting mcu on the bases, to the infield and players getting caught between the bases and run down to their doom were many times features worthy of credit. They were plars n which the proverbial bonehead j work was possible, but there was noth ug doing in that line. They played j he game according to the book and) showed their speed and cleverness the while. Evans, holding down short for the Indians, was the consistent sticker of the game, getting away, with three j bingles, while Shorty Gray in thp same position on the opposing line-up did the heavy clouting.

The city league is in flourishing ren- dition and if the bn the icbedule brings the out ds as the first, this will be a ban ner year for amateur ball.. the boys continue to play after the calibre of last night's game, even, greater 'sue cess will undoubtedly be experienced. .The clais of ball Is certainly on ".the and the spectators who the contest last evening- were mighty pleased with the imprd- .vements apparent. It was so'mewhat icrf. a pitchers battle, Tate and Mey- time up met the ball on the beak fair and fufl and in the sixth repeated the same thing for a double bringing in :wo men. He was about the only one who opposed Tate that seemed. to have him solved. How Runs Were Scored Maroons at bat first. They went out in one, two, three order. Indians their turn scored two. Bingles bj Seidenbecker and Lenper, and a dou- ble by Nicholson scored the runs. The Maroons in the second. A hit by Pulley and a wild lieave to first by Tate to retire Green let Pul- ley in.

The Indians failed in their half: In the third the Maroons draw blank, -while a hit by Evans, a sacri- fice by Lepper and an error on third gave the Indians another tally. The fourth saw.the Maroons retired in .quick succession but the Indians made another score on a single by and Da-vies and a steal: home, while Pulley threw to catch Tate pil- tering second, previous- ly been retired, Tate setting on fay being hit Green the run.

They were 'both there wi! lots of stuff. .Tate allowed but five bingles off his assortment, Meyers gave away eleven, but they were so well scattered that Tale's apparent superiority was lessened to a mlnt- mum. i The game had Its thrills too. Nich- ols' tarmyspearlng of Pulley's scream- Jng smash In the seventh, which threatened to. tie the score was the stellar ptoce of work of the evening. Pulley Is in the habit of cracking Ihe pellet to the left, Nichols knew it ana laid for him good and deep. But al that the terceof Pulley's smash made the Indian left garden tender break ground at a lightening pace. It was jnore of s drive than a fly and a label "good for the whole route" wai attached thereto with the pro- jnlw U It gets by. Nichols was not tier were dangerously close to tbe coring department, -however. Lep- er and Nicholson got on, worked a ouble steal, -but their hopes were asted by the superb work of Meyers this pinch. He struck bolh Nichols and Green out, retiring the side. The sixth was the rallying session for the Maroons. They scored two, making it 4-4. Pulley walked, Green singled and stole. Kinnear grounded- to Tate and Pulley waa caught be- tween home and third.
