They have a comfortable lead to date, but not'enough to claim the pennant yet for the Hustlers and the Leafs up the season the latter half of the week by being opposed to one an- ethsr. Toronto will have a decided advantage over their rivals as the games take place in the Canadian city. Immense crowds are expected to attend ths wind-up series.

Dominion Lacrosse Association Ignores the Minto Cup Toronto, Sept. a meeting of the Dominion lacrosse association this afternoon, at which reports from the member clulis were received, the fol- lowing resolutions were passed: "Whereas, at the time of formation of the Dominion association it was decided by all the clubs form- ing part thereof, that no challenge should be made for the Minto Cup, nor should a club in the Dominion La- crosse association go to play for said cup without the unanimous consent of clubs forming the Dominion La- crosse association; "Ami, whereas, the Toronto La- crosse club has won the champion- ship in the Lacrosse association for the season 1912, and if authorized by the league, is eligible to challenge and play for the Minto Cup: "Be it therefore resolved, that the Dominion Lacrosse association sees no reason for changing its policy In reference to the cup, as settled at its formation, and consequently will not challenge for the Minto Cup, nor auth- orize trie sending of any of its clubs to the West to play for said cup. and that Its interests will be further ad- vanced by playing.ojily in the East under its own rules." "Wtereas It Is the policy of in Dominion Lacrosse association to give consideration to the Minto Cup, and "Whereas, the rules of the Domin- ion Lacrosse association prohibit any player from participating in an exhi- bition game without the consent of the club' to which he Belongs, or any club participating in an exhibition game -without the consent of the oth- er clubs; "Be it therefore resolved that the Jjlayers under contract or on thie re- served lists of the clubs In 'the Do- minion Lacrosse association shall not attach themselves to on any team at the coast during the term of their contract with any of the clubs forming the Dominion Lacrosse asso- ciation." v McGRAVV AFTER RECORD If the Glivits win the Nation- al League, as is expected, John McGr.iw will then ennui the late Frank G. Selee's enviable record of manasinr five Na- tior.al League champions. In the old days Harry Wright managed six championship teams for Boston, and "Pop" Anson led five Chicago chain- pions in the 'SO's, while Frank Chance has n record of win- ning four pc-mianls while he has been in Chicago. Harry Wright won three of his championships prior to the formation of the National Lea- sue iu Of course, his connection with the old Cincin- nati Reds would further in- crease the record of the la- mented Harry.

Right now Joe Wood owns a pitch- ing performance ot .888, being credit- ed with 33 victories and four defeats. This record is in excess ot that owned by any pitcher ot modem times.

If Joe can keep up his work of the last seven Weeks he may round out the season with a winning percentage of .900, a mark at which pitchers in tlw days to come can shoot at, but probably never equal.
