Sept. chain pionship of the National league which for several days, lias been a matter of doubt only to mathematical is now settled definitely in of the New York Giants tor a second successive year. Ail chan- ces of the Chicago Cuba displacing the leaders -were, by New York's double defeat of Boston yesterday, shattered, although at tho same time, the Cubs defeating Cincinnati. The. standing, with, the pennant cinched by New York, is as follows: KawTorS 99 41 .633 ChlcafO .J S9 54 .622 PitUburg v.

Chi- cago could win ail of its games, and Kew York lose all without displace- ment of the Giants. Decks are now cleared for the championship series with the Boston Americans, beginning ia New York. October S, and from now on Manager John J. McGnrw will un- doubtedly use recruits as far as neces- sary, to let the world's series princi- pals ease up. It is an interesting fact that, with jr.- York's clinching of tie pennant, Al Palzer has deckled to quit the ring for the lime being ami go back to home in Iowa. Tlw reason is that he cannot reach an amicable agreement with his former malinger, Tom O'Rourke. Says Palzer: "I think I will remain on the farm until my agreement with O'Rourke expires. If he would put up a bond to guarantee nw fair treatment, I would allow him to handle my affairs, but he has de- clined to make this concession, so I am through with the game for some time to come, I have been prevented from earning a livelihood, but I'd rather be broke than be Imposed up- on. I've lost a lot of mcuey because; of my enforced idleness, but That can't j be helped. I'm a young man and can j afford to wait for several years be-] fore I make another move to win championship of the world."

Not a Challenge Cup Mr. Graham, now arriving, was in- troduced to the audience, and hi mak- ing the presentation, stated that the cup was not intended to be a chal- lenge cup, but became tlie property of its winners in tlie 1912 season, a fact that is stated on the cup itself. Amid much applause 'the cup 'was handed over to the secretary of the Hillcrest Football Club, filled and passed 'hack to Mr. Graham, who rose nobly to the occasion. It was then passed around among the audience, the band playing appropriate music. The Donors This cup -was presented by Messrs. P. Burns Co. to the Southern Al- berta Pass Football League, and Was won with very little effort by the Hillcrest team, this team from the first tolng always in the lead. Make It Challenge Cup A controversy has arisen as to whether the cup shall become a chal- lenge cup or shall be retained by the holders. According to the donors and the engraving on the cup, It is for the season 1912 only, and !s, there- fore, tho property of the Hillcrest Football club. But na 'there is liable to be some difficulty in getting a cup next year, it has been proposed to make it a permanent challenge cup, re-christening it 'the "HUlcrest chal- lenge cup." It Is very probable that this is Iho course Uiut witf event- ually followed. National Now York Recruit Star New York, Sept.
