Drop of Los Angeles in Pacific

San Francisco. Aug. <i. The uncer

percentage column of the Los Angeles
team of the Pacific coast league. A lit

followers of the game were wagging their
heads and intimating tlint the angels were
so far ahead of the race that practically
all interest in the dash for the pennant
was gone and the best that remained was
to concentrate on the struggle for sec
During the interval the improbable lias
occurred and the Angels are battling des
perately with Vernon for the honors,
with the rest of the first division teams
only a matter of a few games behind
which the reverses of a single series on
the part of the leaders will eliminate.
What appeared to be a runaway race
now has developed into one of the closets
struggles ever witnessed on the Pacific
coast, and, at the present time, any one
of the four first division clubs is ac
counted in the reckoning.

Havre Bearcats Disband
Because Interest Wanes
Hester's Aggregation, One of Fastest in Montana
This Season, Discouraged With $105 Gate
Receipts and Lack of Support, Have Dispersed.
Herb Hester's Havre Rear Cats, one
of the fastest aggregations in the state
and claimants of the Montana baseball
championship for have disbanded
because of lack of interest on the part of
the fans. It is understood there is 110
financial difficulty. The Havre Pro
motor has the following to say concern
ing the matter.
"The Havre Rear Cats are no more.
The team was formally disbanded yes
terday. There was just one reason, and
that was 1.1 cU of attendance. At the
game, Sunday, which w.-.* as good base
ball as is seen in amateur ranks, and
better than much professional ball, the
gate receipts amounted ro S1O.1.0O. < »1
course it is folly to continue if the
people of Havre do not want baseball
and are not interested enough to turn
out to a game with as formidable a team
as Fort Benton, when, m addition, there
is an old-standing rivalry between the
two places in basball. At the game be
tiveen Glasgow and Malta, a few dus
previous to this game, there was a ?1,
2(H) crowd out. Six and eight hundred
dollar crowds rule at Malta. Poplar,
Glasgow, and almost anywhere but
Havre. It would seem from that the
Havre people don't want it, so there
will be no more of it this season. It is
regrettable, too, for It gives Havre a
blai k eye as far as the game is concerned
for the future. There is no better inana
ger in the northwest man Manager
Herb Hester, and he Tins put us up -a
good team. It rightly claimed the cham
pionship of the state, and that is pretty
good in Montana. It took every series
played, including the series from Great
Falls Smelters, the series with them
being: Wins- Havre 4; Great Falls 2;
tied 1. This disposes or The Tribune's
claim of the championship for the Smel
ters. But we fear it will be some time
before a man lik" Mr. Hester would feel
like coming to Havre again after tin
lack of interest displayed in the game.
However, another year may be different.
We have had a good deal of distraction
and not any too much money—and. Lord,
it was hot—almost too hot. The team
quit with a clean sheet, there being no
m paid bills, and no one owes them any
thing. Any collections tn behalf of the
team in future aiv not authorized.
"We congratulate Manager Hester for
the way he got a team together and ran
it, and the fans who did attend for the
opportunity they have nad to see some
good baseball. We wish Mr. Hester suc
cess wherever he goes, which will, of
c Hirse be ir. some baseball enterprise.
That's what he lives on."
Ingots May Follow.
Manager Quiggin of the Great Falls
Smelter Ingots, who were considered,
practically all seasons, rivals of the Bear
cats, and also claimants of the state
championship, may follow the Hester
nine in disbanding. Closing up of the
zinc plant here has caused one or two
of the best players on the team to leave
and others are about, to depart, it s
said. This being the case, it will be
difficult to maintain the aggregation at
the strength it has been showing.
The series of games between the
Bearcats and Ingots this season cre
ated a lot of interest, especially at
Havre, where the local team was the
first to give Hester's men a hard bat
tle for the year. Of the six games
played Havre won three, lost two and
one resulted iu a tie. These figures,
furnished by Manager Quiggin, are
slightly different from those published 111

Havre team four victories out of seven

Wolf Point Aggregation Drops
Last Game of Series After
Wolf Point. Aug. •">. Bert hold. North
I>akota baseball players triumphed over
the snappy Wolf Point team of Wolf
Point inthe third contest of a three
game series, the score being 7 to Î5. It
was a fast ball game thruout. The
Wolves had taken the first two contests
4 to 1 and 4 to 0.
All three games are said to have been
remarkably well played. In the first
Wolf Point procured but five hits and
Itertliold four. In the second game
Wolf Point got four hits and the visitors
three. This indicates the air tight pitch
ing that was being done by the twirlers
on both aggregations.
