lt_ ST. LOUIS, Mo., December 8.?In
t a fast game Alfredo De Oro of
t Cuba last night wdn the first of
three matches that will determine
the three-cushion billiard chamEUi
n_ plonship of the world, defeating
If. Thomas A. Hueston of St. Louis,
rs, 60 to 44. The championship conT"
test is for 150 points, and the re**
malnlng 100 points will be played
a tonight and tomorrow night.
The match last night lasted less
than two hours and both players
were at their best. De Oro's avered
age was .60 and Hueston's .61.
De Oro's high run was four and
Hueston's ten. This remarkable
ne run advanced Hueston from 12 to
iy 22, giving him a lead of four over
tie his rival; a lead, however, which
,y he was unable to maintain. Huese*j

The national commission has ruled
against Pitcher Bill Malarkey, who was
released by McGraw late last season.
Malarkey was sent to Buffalo, and asked
for the difference between what he received
in Buffalo and what he would have
received had he finished with the Giants.
I Although his New York contract was assumed
by the Buffalo club. Malarkey lost
about $160 because the Eastern League
season closed two or three weeks before
that of the National League.
The California State League swat averages
are out. Joe Nealon, the ex-Pirate,
is the rightful leader. In 61 games with
Sacramento he hit .372. Hal Chase,
though, tops him. In 21 gaipes with
Stockton Harold slapped .383. Up 81
= times, he punched out 31 safeties. He
i- also 'tallied 20 runs and swiped Ave bases.
"Jake" Wolter, the ex-Cardinal, had a
fat time. On the slab for San Jose, he
|e bagged 25 of his 28 games, besides tying
s one. His peroentage of victories of .926
is about the best ever. WoKer took part

>t night in the second game of the season In
t- the Military League, the contest resulty
ing in a victory for the former by the
score of 28 to 12.
? The Engineers were greatly handicapped,
as it was their flnt venae thin seanon.
is Their work last night -is regarded as an
i- Indication of a flrst-claaa team before the
season is concluded. Troop F was given
* the battle of its career in the first half,
as at the end of the half they led by
n only three points. The second half was
ie very disappointing to the followers of the
,0 Engineer quint, as the boys simply.went
j, to pieoes and were outclassed at every
)f stage. They seemed to be tired and
piayed out.
It Fergus easily took the honors of the

son of strength between the Preps and
s- the teams of the new organisation. The
>y Oeorgetowners are not to be represented
a in the league, but the Y. M. C. A. Is, and
le therefore if the hilltop crowd wins two
of the three games arranged with the
Christian association lads It will be able
a~ to challenge the league champions for the
J Interscholastic title.
Manager Framiieim also announces that
*' Western High has canceled the series ot
ts games which the Red and White was to
10 play against the embryo oolleglans. However,
the West Bnd High team is willing
to meat the Preps in a series of post5;
season games after the league schedule
8 has been played. 'The High School boys
" do this because they think it would be
a- impossible to play outside contests and
& also be able to hold the,r own In the circuit.
In case the Red and White wins the
pennant a series of games with the Preps
[P would be a great attraction and would d? ?

American Olympic Committee to Answer
Latest Charges. ;
NEW YORK. December 8.?The trouble
between the Amateur Athletic Association
of Great Britain and the American O ym- '
pic committee growing out of the disqualification
and eventual suspension of Carpenter
on the ground that he had fouled <
Lieut. Halswelle and other unpleasant incidents
will not down.
A pamphlet written by T. A. Cook, a
member of the British Olympic council,
under the title "The Olympic Games of 1908
in London?A Reply to Certain Criticisms"
has been distributed so widely and in such. !
a way that the American committee feels
ca'led upon to answer it, and for that i
purpose will hold a meeting in the next 1
few days. 1
The bitterness of the feeling abroad may
be judged from the following short ex- 1
tract from Mr. Cook's pamphlet:
"For a long time?many will think far
too Ions?we have remained silent under
the calumny and abuse which have been i
heaped upon the management of the I
Olympic games In the stadium last Ju'y. <
But apparently our silence, which lasted I
until the games were brought to a con- elusion
on October 31. has been misinter- '
preted, and a limit was placed upon any i
further forbearance by the deliberate .
statements made at a public banquet in
New York by Judge Victor Dowling of
the supreme court, by Mr. James Sul'l- !
van, the American commissioner to the '
games In London, and by Mr. Conway, ]
president of the Irish-American Athletic 1
Club. A pamphlet has also been pub- '
llshed by Mr. Gustavus T. Kirby. an Amer- <
lean member of the committee d'honor, <
who was present, at the games. The other \
American members were Gen. Drain, Mr. <
Bartow S. Weeks and Mr. Sullivan, and
I may add that Gen. Drain Is here entirely
dissociated from anything said or done by i
his companions. I knew him at tba games. :
He was uniformly courteous, and the ex- 1
pressed himself as entirely satisfied with 3
all that had come within his experience.
"James SUllivan, however, is in a very <
different category. He has several times i
dilated on 'the prepared shoes worn by i
the Liverpool policemen in the tug of war. i
and the work that dishonest officials did !
in the committee rooms.'
"This he repeated at the banquet of September
21. and he has now forfeited every 1
jhred of tolerance or consideration here
>y leaving uncontradicted what he knows
o be untrue and by striving to shelter
his unpardonable conduct under the plea
:hat he represents the President of the
LTnlted States. From all that Is represented

iie true patriotism of President Roosevelt
md the best of his compatriots, Mr. Sullvan
has put himself wide/as the poles :
