Hamilton also hit two batters. Wheattey, a recruit, pitched the first sevenjanings for Detroit. FOOTBALL Remarks on the "Stavordate" It was unfortunate that weather conditions interefered with (lie sched- ule of Wright Charity Shiald matches this week, and caused n postponement of the Callies-Overseas tic. Unfor- tunate 'because the nights are draw- ing-ill now, and it will be hard to get tho boys out in time to finjsh the gamo before darkness intervenes. However, the Football association ex- ecutive are meeting tonight, and 'will probably f> things up so -that the game will'.bo played to a satisfactory conclusion. PltUfaurfl Shut Out St.'Louis' St. Louis, Sept. kept St Louis' hits well scattered, while his team-mates hit when hits meant runs and Pittsburg today made it two games in succession, 8 to 0. Several recruits were in the local line-up. Brooklyn Three Straight Brooklyn, Sept. made it three straight with Boston, after another close battle today. The score was 2 to 1. Wheat made the first score for the home team, when drove the ball over the right field fence. The winning run came in the fourth, when, with two out and Fish- on second, Perdue Enrin Cleveland Manager Sevurely j intentionally, taking a chance on Cur- HARRY DAVIS COULDN'T STAND THE GAFF 3O RESIGNED Criticised Fop Poor Showing 4 ft Harry H. Davis didn't last 55 manager of the Cleveland club in th-e American league. The poor showing and the fact that been, subjected to severe citktcism by public and press are-.given as Davis' reaaons for resigning. Davis came to the develtnd club last spring, after many years of ser- vice with the Philadelphia Americans first and captain. He had 20 previous managerial .experience, but Charles Somets, oivner of the Cleveland clufx expected laat through fcis long confection with the Trorld'3 champions tieir veteran manager, Connie produce a wln- Bing team. Davlg succeeded George Siovall, i present manager of the St, Louis Am-1 erican league team, who had been traded to that clob notwithstanding he had landed the Cleveland team in I third place in the 1511 race, although wh-sn he took charge it was in sixth place. For a time this Cleveland team did fairly well. As the season .progressed, however, it began io lose its grip. On the recent eastern trip It lost fifteen of seventeen games. Since-coming home it his'lost two out of three. As the team sank in the percentage column criticism be- gan. Lately the newspapers have been sarcastic in their comment tis, who singled, scoring Fisher. j Curtis held the visitors down to one hit until the 'eighth, when Houa- er, batting for Perdue, doubled and geared on Campbell's two-baggw.

McConnell easily outpitched CraUb, but the. breaks fav- ored' the Athletics' pitching recruit. The New Yorks'niade only two runs oh fourteen hits aiid six passes, and ah error br Collins ;let in one of these runs. The- visitors -won in the uinth, when Baker singled, and 'Mclnues at- tempted1 to sacrifice: Chase threw wild to-force" Baker, and when -let the throw go through, him; Baker scored arid Mc- IjinVs.: reached'Vihird. Barry scored Mclnnes.. I saw it staWd somewhere this week, after the Sons of Enghtud-St. Cyprian game had 'been decided in favor of the former, that the Shield might as well be handed to the winner of the other semi-flmil tie. Cal- Hes or Overseas, as which ever of the two teams entered the final would be bound to win the Shield. While I am prepared to admit that on the sea- son's form, the Sous apparently woulc stand to lose against either the cham- pion Overs-eas or the Caledonians, I do not take the pessimistic view of the Englishmen's chances that my friend above quoted docs. less frequent than they should have been. Tins young man has a nice turn of speed, and is a good shol and against a less clever player thai Willetts his efforts, would have be-ei more llolberton, at back Kas much better than in the previou match with Westminster. Hawkins in goiil, was, as usunl, tho inalnsta: of his fact, he performs more than ever, and I an afraid but for their goalkeeper the score against St. Cyprian's woui have beon much hirger than -two goals to nil. I understand Hawkins is signed up for the S. O. K. In leagu football, but in the cup and shieh i.'ointetitlous prefers tc assist the Church team, and although the Sons are "hard up" for K goalkeeper, one cannot but admire the spirit which prompts a player to stick to the weaker team. SASKATCHEWAN TO HAVE BIG EXHIBIT .Watch the Sister Province Make Good at the Congress MARKETS International Toronto beat Buffalo Buffalo, Sept. hit the hall hard and often today, defeating Buffalo, 10 to 4. Lush held the Buf- falos to two hits in six innings, and did some slugging himself, getting a three-bagger, double and two singles in four times at bat. Champions Win Another Rochester, Sept. pitch- ing and sensational work in the .field enabled the champions to beat the Royals again today, by a score of 9 to 4. Jack Quinn, the former Yankee, besides pitching gcod hall, drove in three runs and scored twice himself. He hit safely every time up. Cun- ningham was spiked in the fourth inn-, ing and had to retire. He will be out of the game for a week. Football is a same wliere oae nev- er knows what is likely to happen, and, especially in a cup-fiiial, the popular favorites often go down be- fore the less clover side. Not iliat I claim the Sons to be inferior to either of the other two teams in knowledge of the game. The only thing wrong with Englishmen this season been an inability to hold their play- ers, and evidence of that fact is to be found in the number of men who have appeared on thsir line-up this year. Indeed, with a new goalkeeper and a little practice together, I am inclined to beli-eve that the team which ap- peared for the Sons on Tuesday will give the winner of the Callies-Over- seas tie, a run for their money in the final, Th-e date set for that event Thanksgiving Day will pro- bably see the football season in Loth- bridge -wind up with one of the best games of the year, no matter which aid's wins nexi Week's match. The Sons all played well, and it dit one good to see the old colors be borne to victory once more. Let us hope they will have a little luck in the final for the Shield, for the win- ning of this competition would go a long way to liven up things in the English camp. A good goalkeeper and a man to take Holberton's place understand the latter wishes to quit quired to make a the Sons. all that are good team for American Errors Won far Cleveland Chicago, Sept. gave Cleveland today's game with Chicago to eleven hard-fought inn- inga. Jackson opened the eleventh inning with a pass, Lajoie singled, Birmingham bunted to Benz. who tossed the ball wild to first, Jack- son scoring. G-raney sent a long fly to Lord, who made a beautiful run- ning catch, and then threw wild to third to catch Lajoie, 'who kept on running from second and scored. An- other single scored. Birmingham. Davi contract 'was for but one year. He has not announced his fut- ure intentions. Joe Birmingham, who assumes charge of the team, is one ot" Its veterans. Great Pitchers' Battle Boston, Sept, Wood beat Walter Johnson today, winning his fourteenth straight victory in a spec- tacular pitchers' battle, which John- Bon sought in the hope of protecting his American league record ot" sis- teen consecutive wins. The score was: Boston, 1; Washington, people saw the game. The loae tally came in the sixth inning, with two out. Speaker hit into the crowd in left field for two ba-ses.

He is to succeed Johnny Kling, who says he is very glad to give up hia present job. Tuesday's game -between the Sons of England and St. Cyprian's was a good sharp contest, 'while it lasted, and though the Sons always held the upper hand, the Saints gave them a more strenuous time than they really expected. It was by HO means a classy exhibition of the game; the j Church team being not yet up to] grade, but they played that bustling, kick-anti-rush kind of football which usually upsets the sci-entific side. One of the features of the match was the persistent feeding of. that brilliant player Bestwick, by his team-mates on the English sid-2, and it 'is but right to add that he made good use of all the afforded him. It is fortunate for the Sons that Best- have had occasion already this season to say a good word about Jor- dan, ;i lad who knows the game, and, what IB better, plays it. Gall, another youngster, gave a good exhibition of half-back play on Tuesday, and with Fred Willetts and Mimday L-ae, made up the best half-hack line that has done duty for the Sons this season. Frier, too, fulfilled his earlier promise and 'was easily the t-est back on the field. Parker was good, as usual, though -his junior opponents .bothered him not a little, while "Billy" Holber- ton, first in gcal and afterwards on tho outside 'right, gave his side good son-ice. "Charley" Westley, in a G. O. Smith-like costume, was press- ed into service finite unexpectedly at 'the last moment, and interchanged positions with Holberton. It is suf- ficient to say that "Charley" finished the game with his and his costume Unsullied.

St. Louis Hrooklvn MATTY HAILS TESREAU AS SAVIOR OF THE GIANTS o New York, Sept. Tesreau, the greatest young spitball artist of John J, McGraw's champion Giants, looms out as the greatest hope of New York's pennant chances, according to Christy Miitlicwson, the greatest pitch- er the game has ever developed. Matty is not the kind to up in the heat of stiff argument. He insists that Chicago wlli have a much harder time In cutting down the present Giant lead than it had in getting with- in striking distance of the league leaders. Yet on Tesreau and Mc- Graw he banks the chief reliance of the Impending struggle. HM picks Tesreau as one of the greatest pitch- ing finds of the year, a youngster who is at his very -best the hotter the sit- natlons. Mathewson gives nil the credit of the lead the Giants now enjoy to the pensp.tional performance of "Rube" Marnuard, who appears to havo gone The S. O.

Ball and Jordan were all included in Tuesday's team, and shared equally with the ohier members in the credit of the victory. Gurr was another man playing on this occasion who has made spasmodic appearances for the Sons this season. There may, of course, -be, seme reason of which I am not aware, for his infrequent inclu- sion in the team; but Gurr is a really good footballer, and it is a pity that the Sons have not engaged his ser- vices more often. "Charley" "Westley and "Billy" Holberton both had to take the field on Tuesday at a mo- ment's notice, and although neither of them did anything particularly bril- liant, it 'was more through lack of opportunity iban anything else. St. Cyprian's had quite a changed line-up in this match, compared with the team which did duty for them tho previous week against Westminster. Hut that it was an improved team is altogether problematical. The half- backs were ;i sturdy trio, and made up In weight and checking capability for any lack of science. The forward line was improved, though the evil of dallying clth the ball haa not been entirely eradicated.
