The track was in excellent condition and the son of Bingen made the circuit in 1.58 Hat. This breaks the world's record for a trotter, which h^sretoforo was held by lx)u Dillon. IJhIan was driven by his trainer, Charles Tanner. KLING TO RETIRE Manager .Johnny Kling, of tho Boston Nationals, in a letter to newspaper friends in Boston, announcse his retirement from baseball. He states that he is satisfied, after vainly seeking for a conference with President Gaffney, Of the Bcat�n club for over a week, tliat tho rumors of George StalUngs being his successor are true. POPULAR TORONTO PITCHER MARRIED Richard Rudolph, the srack pitcher ot the To-ronto ball ciab was married at St, James Cathedral, Toronto last week and a photographer got him and his bride with others of the party on the front steps. In the circle is the officiating clergyman Rev. A. A. Bryand and the guests Included from left to right, Master Roderick Barker, Mr. Alex Craig, Miss Ethel Craig bridesmaid, Mr. Thos. Church (best man, Mrs. and Mr. W. B. Craign, father of the bride, Mrs. W. J. Turnbull, Mr. W. J. Turnbull. In the lower large picture are Richard and his bride. U is nimoat a cei't&lhty that Jack ,[6hn�on, the hcftvywcight cliampton will got back Into the ring, and that UlB llrst ongngoment will be in, far awny Australia, tho country wherc he won the world's title from Tommy Burns. Johnson has bei'n undecided for the past couple oC months as to whether he would re-enter tho ring or not. During tho tlnio ho was training tor Jim Flynn, at Laa Vegas, New Mexico, Johnson signed a contract with Hugh D. Mcintosh of Auslrnlin, to meet Sam Langford and Sam McVen in that country, within six months' time. He was to get practically $50,- 000 for tho two fights, and was also give an offer for a Uilrd fight with Joo Joanctte. When Johnson returned to Chicago, after defeating Flynn, he opened bis f.unous Cafe Champion, and was making motley so fast that ho could not see Australia nohow. The big oh'er did not aijpear as tcnjpting to liim as when he signed th� contract at Las Vegas, and after a great deal of dickering back and forth, he announced that ho wna tliroush with tho ring; then camo the Joanetto offer from New York, Johnson's acceptance and tho tlnal blow-out, which prevented his getting the easy money in Gotham. Following this setback camo the hardest blow ot all, the suicide ot his wife; it changed Johnson's future. Prom that time ho had a desire to get away from the oafo in Chicago, and made up his mind to get away from everj-thlng connected with it for the time being. It was then that W. C. J. Kelly, who was coniipctcd in the sporting goods business with Mr. Jlclntosh in Australia, came over liero on business, and expressly to try and get Johnson to go hack, with him. He succeeded this week. Johnson stated :iiat he would nmUe tlw trip and practically carry out the terras ot the contract signed at Las Vegas. He met Mr. Kellcy in Chicago the first week and settled all details, and is prepared to sail for Australia early In November. "It will b-3 a case ot doing some bard and honest training for mo,' 'said Johnson, "for I am going over to beat hoth of the-contenders for the heavyweight crown, and while I am at it, I will also give Mr. Jeanette an opportunity to show where he stands In the heavy-weiglit line. I will meet afl the legitimate claimants, as challengers, while 1 am at It this time, and then retire for good." Edmonton the Mecca for Baseball Players ?

We have no prejudice for or against either Isague, 'but, regardless ot where they have played, have selected, the team which appeals to us as tho strongest which mlsht be gathered under conditions named above. We know well enough you won't agree with our choice In many instances. But then this is "our" team-not "yours." And in spile of your discontent with the choice, wo arc fairly sure that our team, as gathered, will bo somewhere In the race and a fairly spirited contender through tho greater part of the stretch. Another better one might bo picked? Very well-It is ' your, next choice. 'Edmotiton, Oct. 17:-Edmonton is fast becoming a meoca for baseball players, and if Johnny iMackln had all tho men under contract who were in the city yesterday he would have the material for a team which would ro.mj) tjirougii the Western Canadian lea(5ue. ,,?
