The Brooklyn Federal league team defeated the Pittsburg Rebels by a score of 1 to 0 in the opening game of the Federal league season here yesterday. The at tendance was about 14,000 and the saw thrills enough to suit the aver age fan! The young Brooklyn left fielder, Cooper, who was taken by stealth from John McGraw, went into the crowd several times for fly balls and generally came up with the sphere in his hands. Tom Seaton was invincible all the way. He had his curve ball working and the home men nearly broke their backs trying to place the ball safe ly. Elmer Knetzer, the former Dodger, who pitched for Pittsburg, was unfortunate in the tenth inning, when he and his infield wavered for a moment, just long enough to lei the Tip Tops came under the wire first. In the fatal tenth Hof man Walked. Then Capt. Oakes or dered Knetzer to walk Murphy, who looked dangerous. Besides. Wester zitl had, been easy for Knetzer. But this time he hit between McDonald's legs for a single, scoring Hofman with the only run of the game.

The an nouncement yesterday that Charlie Hann, the former Harvard first base man, had injured a bone in his right ankle and would be out of the Co lumbia lineup, in today's game with Holy Cross at South field did not de press Head Coach Lush much. Lush said that the team was in such fine fettle, that Hann could be spared to rest up a few days without a defeat resulting from the move. Buncke, who hit so well in the Penn series at Atlantic City, will move .from right field to first base. It . will not be new to him, as he played 1 the position' part of last sea son. Danny Meehan has been show ing so much improvement in his few days' practice that he probably will play in the outfield today., Coogan, the former Georgetown man, will not play, as he has not been declared eli gible as yet. Jim O'Neale will start in the box for Columbia and Coach Coakley says the slim youth is still in winning form. FLYNN IN NEW ROLE. v Maurice B. ("Lefty) Flynn, the .famous Yale fullback, has been elect ed a member of . the New York A. C. He is a possibility for the all-around athletic championship. Before he became a pigskin chaser "Lefty" was a good hurdler and shot-putter. On account- of his strength and speed the experts believe "Lefty" can be de veloped into one of the best all around me in the world. He will be eligible to represent the Mercury Foot in the junior championships in both the metropolitan and national meets.

Mitch ell, the amateur heavyweight cham pion of North England, was knocked out last night by the French cham pion, Georges Carpentier, in the first round after one minute, and 35 sec onds" of fighting. At that, he man aged to last twenty-two seconds long er against the French man than djd Bombardier Wells in his bout, with Carpentier at the National Sporting club in London a few months ago. Mitchell is the nephew of P. H. 111 igworth, the chief liberal whip in the British parliament and hails from Bradford. He stands six feet three inches, and weighs 177 pounds about the same weight, as Carpentier. He had the advantage, however, of hlb great height and reach. in the single round of the fight, Carpentier knocked the Englishman down five times. Four times he' man aged to get to his feet after the count of nine, but on the fifth knock down the referee counted only as far as six and then said: "Gentlemen, the fight la over. This man has had enough." Mitchell entered the contest, he said, in advance, with no idea of beating Carpentier, he was merely cu rious to see how long he could last. He displayed pluck and managed to land one or two blows on the Frenchman's chest and shoulders. .Before he was finally disposed of, he essayed one vicious swing which would doubtless have knocked , out the Frenchman, but it failed to find the mark by a fraction of an inch. The geniuine sporting ( nature of the match and Mitchell's modesty aroused great interest in England and France, and the gymnasium where the . contest took place was crowded to the doors. , ' .

Har vard beat Bowdoin, 5 to 1. in a light hitting game yesterday, the visitors playing loosely in their opening game of the year and their errors opening the way for all of the Crimson's runs. Frye was hit hard In spots, but fine fielding, notably that of Nash and Frlpp, prevented the Maine collegians from doing more damage.

Cheney went sir and a fraction Innings for the Cubs and doubtless made a record for himself by unlimbering five of the wildest pitches imaginable. All were costly, and eight bases on balls also helped make Red runs flood across the pan, with often nary a hit to help them along. Koestner went on the mound in the seventh and also was afflicted with the wild pitch habit, . his ', two causing some more Bed runs.
