The game started off with a good
speed and looked like St. Helens
would hold tho visitors down, but
the ngbr handed batters proved too
mnch for Ballagh's new South-Paw.
Copelan 1 allowed his opponents to
get 8 hits vhlch proved fatal to St.

seemed to put fight Into tin vljltors
after which Ballagh's men were not
able to score again until they put 2
across in the 6th Inning. One more
run In the 9th was all that St. Holcns
I was able to add.
I Stilleto's pitcher proved a bit too
much for the home players. Ho al

His suport was good all through the
game. Every man seemed to be In
the game with plenty of life. They
run one man homo tn the 3rd and
two more In the 4th and one In the

keep that up every frame. But St.

put up a good showing of Big League

London. Suffragettes, for the first

churches and created scenes by at
tempting to harangue the congrega

Westminster cathedral and the
Church of the Oratory, Brompton.
Father Bernard Vaughan had Just
taken his place tn the pulpit In West
minster cathedral at the evening serv
ice when a woman, well-dreasd and
apparently of refinement, rushed up
the steps into another pulpit, and,
waving her arms, shouted: "In the)
presence of the blessed sacrament I

midday mass In the Church of the
Oratory by chanting: "God save Em
mallne Pankhurst and all our noble)
prisoners; open the eyea of this
church and of the priests to put an
end to the torture; in the name of
the blessed Joan of Arc, hear them
In their hour of need."
The growing hostility on the part
of the publlo was shown by assault
Sunday on several open-air meetings.
Speakers were mobbed, stands were
torn down and two men were saved
by the police from duckings or beat
