The ball park at the Hat is of a sandy substance and the game yes- terday might have been played as far as the grounds were concerned, it were in very muddy state acid would, have been detrimental to a large crowd, so the opening game was reserved until to- day, when things are in a.better condition for celebrating the occa- sion. John (Toicahawk) Taylor will in all likelihood hold down the Leth- bridbe third base. His disabled hand from the opening game here is now healing nicely and is not in too bad a condition to prevent him play- ing.

Last season Jennings could not make the tribe claw in union for some time after the opening, and predictions were made that the champions of the year before had become household pets. But this was soon changed and the brick-haired grass puller led his crew over the line by the width of one of those blonde hairs referred to as "such fine hair." But it's different this year. The Tigers began snarling crack of the gun, and are going so fast they promise to open all sorts of distance between themselves and No. 2 before midseason. And just think of it Jennings hasn't loosed his royal Bengal up to date. He is holding.him until the kettles, finish boiling in the maple bushes, .for fear his coat will be mussed. The question bothering the league is "If Detroit can remain in front without Donovan, what's go- ing to happen when Jennings slips his leash Football GIANTb FIND .CHEAP WAY OF GIVING FAVORS TO FRIENDS to the ingenuity of "Bugs" Baymond, it is rumored several of the players on the Giants have been rolling in favors. The players .say that "Bugs" would call up Secre- tary Knowles every morning and as- certain if there was to be a game. Being informed that would be .played that day .he immediately asked for a few passes for that day and handed them around with a lav-" ish hand. This ingenious method not only strong; :but also saved :the "club money. Hube Wad- dell will have to go some to that one. THE LATEST CREATION FOR SUMMER WEAR ALL THE COMFORTS OF A TURN DOWN EFFECT.

A" largo enthusiastic crowd lined grounds arid cheered loudly when a good play j was made, and laughed good natur- edly when a player happened to slip and fall awkwardly on a muddy spot in.the grounds. The line-up of-the teams was pub- lished in yesterday's'Herald: so repi- tition is not necessary. E. B. Tab- rum was referee .and seemed to give general satisfaction. When the teamSo lined I'up in. posi- tion and the S. O. E; had won the toss the honor of the kick-off was given to W. A. Buchanan, 1LP.P., who has generously donated the Bu- chanan Championship Shield which will -be the prize for contention ia this city till won three years in suc- cession iiy one team. Last night's contest between.the Caledonians and the S." O.. E. -was the first battle for the 1909 championship. ,and meinbers of the .other .competing clubs, the Maple iLeafs and. A; 0. F., viewed the game cheering any good play made -by. either party. The ground was in splendid shape considering xhe wet, weather- of the few! days previous, but still the ground and ball were not-in condi- tion for perfect, accurate kicking and passing.; All the players would as- suredly have done better on ground less slippery and with a But training- tells, and the victory of. the" Callies was "no doubt largely due to the efforts of the Caledonian trainer.

O' Brien in pftrticular was delighted at the opportunity of meeting the big colored :fighter. He said "I have no fear of the of tomorrow night's battle with Johnson. I had an opportun- ity of viewing the pictures of the re- cent Johnson-Burns fight in ATwtral- ia and-believe me; if Johnson the same tactics against me, he. did against Burns, there will be a different tell. I am heavier and much faster than Burns and yet it took Johnson fourteen rounds to accomplish the Canadian's defeat. In my twenty round fight, with Burns in California, the, latter could not (de- feat me, and yet I failed to train properly.. For this fight with John- son I have trained more conscien- tiously than I ever did in my life, and have taken on. weight instead of reducing." While Johnson's course of traicinK has not been so severe as that of O'Brien, his manager claims he is nt to make O'Brien go six fast The colored man is not in such per- fect condition as O'Brien, but immense difference in weight will used by Johnson to great in the, clinches.
