Grover has won 28 games and lost eight for .765. To heat Walsh's record Alex, would have not only to pitch more than one- haif the games the Phils have to play, but win 'them.

CHAMPION SHOT KILLED I London, Sept. A. N. V H. Ommundseu of Edinburgh, Scot land, champion- shot of the British Empire, is reported, to have been kill cemoer uit ed while lighting in F'iauders. Lieut. of gl.OUnd. Ommundsen was the winner of the chief prizes at the shooting tourneys held at Bisley, England, including the King's Prize, which he took at the' meeting of the .National Rifle associa- tion in 1910. He has been a member international rifie teams. heavy fighting earlier in tlic year. There the Germans bad built what considered almost Impregnable fortifications. Attack a Complete Success Tho attack was made in co-opera, tion with the British, ivho attacked on liither side of La Basscjc canal. The attack to the south ol" the canal was, Field-MarshP-'l Sir .John French re- ports, a complete success. Trenches five miles in width, urn! about 4000 yards In depth were taken at this point. Tills push forward gives the British possession of the road from Lens to La Bassee, which was used by tlic Germans for moving troops and sup- plies north and south, and threatens o outflank the German troops which lold the town of Lens. Hill No. 70, one of llie positions tak- en on the road, is less than a mile' directly north of Lena, while Hulluch, which also fell into Hie hands of the British, is at the end of the road near La Bassee. It is only twelve miles from Hulluch to 'Lille, the capital of Northern France. North of the canal the British, al- though they fought all day yesterday, were unable to hold the ground sain- ed, and had to fall back to the trench, they had left in the morning. The attack, however, accomplished one purpose. According to Field-Marsha'! French, German, reserves were sent to check this move, thus giving the British-- south of the canal an oppor- tunity to consolidate their new posi- tions unmolested, and the French to make further progress. A somewhat similar manoeuvre took place to the north and south of the Menin road, east of Ypres, and the results were the same. North of tile road the British were unable to hold the ground taken, while to the south they gained about 600 yards of the German .trenches and consolidat- ed the ground won. So far as is reported, the British took 2600 prisoners, with nine guns and "a considerable number of ma- chine guns." Incessant Bombardment For several weeks there has been almost incessant bombardment with liig guns, which, late last week, in- creased in. intensity, particularly in the sector where infantry attacks took place. The French, who have the most im- portant gain to.-their credit, .made their chief onset against the Barman lines around Perthes, Beasejo.ur and Sulppes' in Champagne, where in De- eember they made a considerable gain leaving ilii! public to take cure of the freight. So far us the situation with gard to the unemployment ill the do- mestic mines of this section, and the markctiiiK or this coal was con- cerned, Sir. Grothers did not see just what he could do to relieve the situ- ation, and further than what had been done, lie willing to meet the miners and discuss the matter, hut he believed the difficulties of the, situation were economic ones which had to be adjusted by time. Lemieux Act Hon. Mr. Crothers paid a tribute lo the industrial disputes act. "I do not take any particular credit to my- scli for this said he, "it was framed by the Liberal administration, and it is a good act. With the amend- ments to the act which wo hope to put through next session, which will remedy defects which have been made apparent in the operation of the act, I believe we will have one of the most perfect pieces of labor tegisla- ion in the world. The labor men are oming to realize this more, and are nakinR use of the act. Its operation ms been exceedingly satisfactory.

Tribute to Missionaries The lecturer first spoke of the pio- neer missionaries, the first white men to venture into the wilds of the North American India, the chivalry of as he termed them, who had come out to the new land with the sublime mission 01 converting the Indian. He paid a beautiful tribute to the noble Jesuit fathers, and there was not a corner of the north-west where these had failed to break the bread of eternal life. He spoke feel- ingly also-of the wonderful work of [the missionaries oi the evangelical churches. These early pioneers, he said had not come to the new land for its many beauties, nor for a love of adventure. They had a grander purpose in view. They came to rescue the living temple of God, to snatch the priceless jewel of the human soul from the jaws of savagery. They came at the command of the master builder to lay broad and deep, the foundation of the spirit oi the com monwealth to buld up Christianitj and to extend the reign of Jesus Christ.

General Ivanoff apparently Is de- termined to hold back the Austro-Ger- laus, and his efforts are meeting a considerable measure of suc- uess. The fortress triangle, which in- cludes Dubno, Rovno and LtltBjc, is al- most entirely in the possession of the ussians. In Galicia, the Austrians have been driven hack across the rivers which run parallel to the border.
