Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago struggled all season for first place, never being far from each other in the percentage table and not until today could the winner be picked. St. Louis put Cleveland out of the running yesterday leaving the field to Detroit and Chicago. Chicago's fight has been an uphill one, but Manager and Captain Jones never despaired until the last of the Chicago players had been retired today. Had Chicago triumphed the pennant would have come to this citv but the defeat of the local team in the final left no subject of debate. Detroit's victory was clean and de cisive. Jones used three pitchers. While, Walsh and Smith, but he could not subdue the Detroit. Donovan pitched the kind of ball that will win almost any game. His team-mates coming first to bat lent him confi dence in the initial inning by knocking liite out of the box and putting four runs over the plate. All told he struck out ten men. Behind him errorless hall played and and hits were made v hen hits w ere needed. There w ere 'thirteen of them, a fatal proportion of them, from the local viewpoint, being in the first inn ing.

Vox Populi had its inning yesterday and no pustake If Mr. Brvan really wants to know whetTTer the people have any voice in what is going on he should have attended the republican county convention that was held here yester day. Its achievements appear at the head of this column where the world can see. That the work was satisfac tory to the convention is proved with the announcement that everything ac complished was done by acclamation and there was never a written vote, nor a wrangle, nor even an expression of differing sentiment, save once, and that was when a leader of "the com " .on :uoide" wanted to thro'.v an ex tra bouquet at Roy S. Goodrich and he. being something of a "commoner" him self wouldn't stand for it. That the work of the convention was satisfac tory to everybody else is demonstrated by the compliments paid the republi can delegates by the democrats tarry ing in the town when they heard the sad news. If anybody doubts that it is the strongest and best ticket ever nominated in Maricopa county, let him ask almost anybody lie meets except a democratic candidate. If he should still be wanting in faith, all he will have to do will be to wait about a month and he will hear the candidates making a noise that will sound like hallelujah. The convention was called to order at the appointed time yesterday morn ing b George A. Mintz, chao'in in of the county central committee. After liar naoing of the call, Mr. M nlz ins made temporary chairman, H. F.
