OPEN DAY AND NIGHT W.S.Cook E.�.Peck 308 Second Ave. 8,-Phone 665 Edmonton Journal.-Clonie Tait, of Edmonton, lightw^ght champion ot Canada, put the lid on the rising hopes of Knockout Chaliff of Regina in the third round of a scheduled ten-round bout at the Empire theatre Monday night by ending the matter via Jhe K. 0. route after the prairie city youth had taiien a count ou fire previous occasions. Chaliff, who came so highly recommended, was at no time a match for the champion and the fans who expected to see Clonie up against a fast opponent were out of luck, for Chaliff's fate was in Tate's hands from the clang of the opening gong until the final punch put Saskatchewan's pride out of the limelight for an Indefifinite period. From the minute that the Regina hope entered the ring the champion gave him no peace, and with his arms whirling madly in all directions, and wth eyes glued to the floor, Chaliff smelt the resin time and again. Dr. McCormick was the third man in the ring, 'and Nat Bell bandied the time-piece. With Bun Hazza and Earl Wolf on the job, a good raft of preliminaries were staged. Bouts between the wjighta of eighty-five younds and the weights of eighty-five pounds and the the large crowd who journeyed from far and near in the hope of seeing a snappy man make Clonie exert himself to gain the decision and retain his championship. The first bout of the evening between the Drayton twins ended in a draw after some fierce tussling. Fighting Kid Simpson and Curly Thompson were the occupants of the ring for the second preliminary and the decision was awarded to Simpson. The bout between Young Galiard and Young Rankin ended abruptly in the first round when Rankin was forced to retire with a damaged hand. A bout de luxe with five entries, one in each comer and one in the centre, provided a riot of fun. The centre man proved the only casualty as he suffered a tapped claret, and the bout was called to allow the next preliminary to be staged. Billy Barton, a brother of Barton, a Martini find, had little difficulty in disposing ot his opponent, G. Brown, in a three-round bout. .One of the snappiest curtain-raisers to the main event was the four-round bout between Morgan and Freddy Tait, the latter getting the decision. Morgan had a slight advantage in the first round, but Tait was on top in the remaning three. Lou Scaler refereed the preliminaries in his usual satisfactory style. There was quite a wait between tlte last ot the preliminaries and the main event owing to the manager ot the Regina hope insisting on a boost of percentage and a guarantee or no fight, a fact that was quicldy remedied by the promoters, who rather than see the fans disappointed agreed to Chaliff's terms. Chaliff's manager, Man-deli, did not do his protege much good as his way of doing business did not meet with the ways of the local pro-motors, who were doing everything in tlieir power to give the fans a good I show. The promoters were evidently under the impression that Chaliff had suffered a severe attack of cold feet, and conceded to his requests. Providing Cionie's hand, which was broken in a bout with Billy Miller at Drumheller, June 3, does not trouble him any more, he will leave shortly for the east on an extended trip. He expressed his willingness to meet such boys as Frankie Bull and Fleming, and has sent word to the eastern promoters that he is ready to defend his title. On his trip east Cionie will hook up with any legitimate lightweight, not forgetting Ritchie Mitchell in his old home town, Milwaukee. The attendance at the bouts last night was large, and the leading tans are talking over the establishing of a boxing club during the coming winter. Tait states that he realizes what a benefit it would give the youths of the city and expressed his willingness to return to the city and render ^ny assistance possible in the developing of the club. The. club when formed will be named after Edmonton champion and a location is now being sought. Following are statistical lists ot the Boston Americans and Chicago Nationals: Chicago Nationals. Name.

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" Games in which no one is left on base, though hits are made, such as William Elmer Jacobs of the Phillies pitched against the Cardinals recently, have not been numerous in the National League. In six years there have been just six-an average of one to the campaign. The freakiest conflict ot this kind was one that Pol Perritt pitched for St. Louis against the Giafits, on Aug. lath, iai3. The New Yorkers scored six times, made eight hits one man reached first on a pass and ope on an error, and yet no one was left. Ivy WIngo saw to that condition of affairs by throwing out the four men who didn't score. There have been the other games since 1612 in the National League in which no one was left: - Oct. 3, 1914-Cincinnati did not have any men left on base in a game with Pittsburg, Htjrmon pitching. Reds made two hits. May 19, 1915-Philadelphia did not have any men left on base in gama with St. Louis, Griner pitching. Phillies made two hits and Cardinals made two double plays. Sept. 4, 1915-Brooklyn did not have any men left on base in game with Boston, Neht pitching, Superbas made one hit and Braves made one double play. June 29, lOlR-New York did not have any jiien left on base in game with Philadelphia, Rixey pitching. Giants made four hits and Superbaa made three double plays. The American Red Cross has allocated the sum of. $25,000 to Britain's National League for Health, Maternity and Child Welfare, to promote the eatab-Jishment of maternity centres and day nurseries in areas where much war work in being done.

Dowllna Chicago, Sept. 5.-With clear and warmer weather predicted the Chicago Nationals and Boston Americans at 2:30 this afternoon were scheduled to make a belated start in their battle for the baseball championship of the world. Weather permitting, the clubs will play here tdday, tomorrow and Saturday and will entrain Sunday for Boston, where the remaining games of the big series will be 'staged, beginning Monday, until one' club has won four games. Despite the fact that the present series marks the swan song of baseball until after the war, interest was at a lower ebb this year than ever before in the opinion of world's aeries veterans. Threatening weather may have been partially' responsible but only a handful of spectators gathered for the "early morning watch" yesterday, even fewer today. Advance Sale . The advance sale, of tickets, however, it was announced, was up to expectations. Managers of both clubs said today they contemplated no eleventh hour changes in their line-ups. There was a possibility, however, that Dave Shean might be replaced in the Boston infield as the result ot a split finger suffered in practice Tuesday. Jack Coffey was picked to play in case the injured second baseman proved unable to perform. The Batting Order Following is the batting order: Boston-Hooper, rf.; Shean, 2b.', Strunk, cf.; Ruth, If.; Mclnnis, lb.; Scott, ss.; Coffey . or Thomas, 3b.; Schang, c.; Mays or Bush, p. Chicago-Flack, rf.; Hollocher, ss.; Mann, If.; Paskert, cf.; Merkle, lb.; Pick, 2b.; Deal,. 3b.; Kiilifer, c; Vaughn or Tyler, p. "Vaughn for the Cubs and Maya for the Red Sox were considered premier mound possibilities. Manager Mitchell was expected to put his best bet foremost by starting with his giant left hander, while Manager Barrow i% most likely to start Mays, and hold "Bullet Joe" Bush for use later on in the coming crisis, should they develop. Visiting magnates were unanimous in the verdict that the present series is demonstrating beyond all doubt that interest in protesBional baseball has waned, for the duration of the war at least. CEL[ DAY IN BIG STYLE All Day Program a Success Two Accidents Occurred, Not Serious (.Spcciiii to (he HcraW) Fernie, Sftpt. 3.-What at first gave gloomy promise for a good day of Bi)ortH because of threatening weather, turned out to be one of the fine^it days over enjoyed by the people of near-by Pass towns, and more than three thousand people visited the sports which wpvo hold at the city park yesterday. Twenty-two iiundred, paid admissions were recorded at the gates, and no one who has ever been at a public gathering in Pernio will be disposed to dispute the statement that there were, at least a thousand children, under' fourteen ^eai's of age on the groiiads motto, "No Man's Land.' and there were sure no men in that car. It was filled with handsoipie girls dressed in wliite with red ribbons binding up their hair. It is a suspicion among other contestants, that it was the handsome girls, rather than the flags and otlier commonplace ornamentation; that biased the jlidgment of the committee. It was a handsome car. and Mrs. Todd has the credit of much of the designing of it. Second and third prizes in this contest went to the I.O.D.E. car driven by J. Perry, and the Junior I.O.D.E. car driven by Miss Henderson. These cars were handsomely decorated and had for passengers, girls dressed in Red Cross costumes. There were scores ot other cars in the line, one of them that of Mr. B, K. Stewart .was most tastefully decked out with asters, shasta daisies, sweet peas and golden glows, the hood ot the car appearing to be a bank of sweet peas. The sports began about two o'clock and wero thoroughly enjoyed by the big crowd. The baby contest, always an interesting event, brought out many handsome future Canadian citizens of tender ago, but full ot iito.. Little G. Ashmore got first prize in the infant plass and M. E. Glover came second. In the one to two year class, James Clark was first and A. Morris second, though none ot the youngsters seemed to have aa much interest in the proceedings as did their proud mothers. In the mile horse race, an Indian horse from Tobacco Plains, ridden by Moses Prank, got first and a bay ridden by J. Cameron took second place, In the mile bicycle race, first and second places were taken by R. and George Laurer. The mile foot race, open to all, was close; John Long-Time-Star, an Indian, taking first; Spencer Kennedy, second, and Moses Prank, another Indlau, third prize. John Long-Time-Star also got awaji with first pliico in the 440 yard rac(!, A. Gruvallc coming home next to him. All the other competitions were 1111-ed but the list ot winners is too long to be. recited hero. The Coal Creek boys, with their line of games, shooting gallery, merry-go-round and other attractions, took in a good sum of money which went to swell treasury ot Patriotic Fund. The 1. O. D. B. ladies took in seven hundred,dollars, which, with gate and other receipts of the day and the dance last night in Violoriu' Hall, brought the sum total of collections to a little over three thousand dollars, all of which, excepting that taken by the ladies of the I. O. D, E. tor the Red Cross,-goes to the Patriotic Fund. Ail told, the day was a most successful one, making a record for the town in the line of sports, and in the handsome amouiit ot money which goes to such worthy causes. The Pernio Band furnished excellent music during the day and are deserving of much credit for the aid they rendered the committee in their arrangements for the entertainment of the big crowd. The young man, Casirarnen, who sustained a broken thigh, was taken to the Fernie hospital in an unconscious state, but is reported today by Dr. Garner as doing quite as well as could be expected under the circumstances.

So numerous were the kiddies that in one of the horse races a small child was knocked down by one of the running horses, and Injured, though not seriously. One other accident wliich resulted in a broken thigh and other bruises happeaed at the Aerial Railway, a wire cable Incline, from which those who paid the price huner, suspended while they made the flight from the upper to the lower end. In starting in one of these flights, Louie Casirarnen, a young miner, miesed his hold on the pulley support and fell to the ground, a distance of some thirty. feet. But this little mishap did not! hinder others from taking flights and the patriotic fund was the gainer by the results. The trains brought hundreds from outside points, and many came in cars some as far as from Eureka, Montana. Most of the business houses and hotels were decorated with flags and bunting and every body woro the best smile possible in addition to other bright clothing. The programmo began with the auto parade from the upper end of Victoria Avenue to the Park. ' The first prize In the contest for the best decorated card went to Miss Wlnnett Whose car was covered with two flags of large dimensions, one, the Canadian flag and the other the Stars and fltripes.
