Game, Jumps St. Louis
St. Louis, Mo., June 30.—Harry
Sallee, pitcher for the St. Louis na
tionals has retired from the game,'
according to a statement issued by
Schuyler Britten, president of the
club yesterday. The statement of
President Britten folows:
"Sallee told me that he has quit the
game. I wanted to reinstate him, be
cause we wanted him, but he came
out in plain words and told me he
was tired of the game.
"Salle did not ask to be traded.
When he told me that he did not
want to play any more, I asked him
if he wanted to move to another club.
I had an offer of $10,000 cash for
him. and New York wanted to give
me Tesreau for him but I turned
down both propositions.
"He simply said he was getting
tired of the game. 1 hope he changes
his mind. We can use him, but he
informed me that he was not holding
out for more mcney or holding out
for a deal that would take hi'm away
from the Cardinals."
Sallee was suspended two weeks
ago for leaving the club in New York
and failing to report at Cincinnati..

a score of 1 to 0 in the afternoon
game at the big celebration at York,
Starkweather won from Brinsmade

CHICK EVANS JR.
IS A COMEBACK
The Former National Golf
Champ Breaks Course Rec
ord at Minneapolis.
Minneapolis, June 30. Charles
(Chick) Evans, Jr., the amateur of
Edgewater club of Chicago, who two
years ago lost the national open golf
championship by one stroke, bids fair
to win that honor this year, in the
opinion of close followers of the game.
He gained a three-stroke lead yester
day in the annual tournament at the
Minikahda club links here, and leads
the field with a total of 139 for the
first 36 holes.
Evans made. 70 in the morning
round and broke the course record in
the afternoon when he turned in a
card of 69. Wilfrid Reid, Wilming
ton, DeL, professional, was second in
today's play, with 142. Reid made
70 in the morning and was 33 strokes
for the first nine holes in the after
non. Then he started putting badly
and took 39 for the second nine.
James Barnes of Whltemarsh club,
Philadelphia, and Bob Peebles of
Kansas City were tied with 145.
Barnes was 71 in the morning and 74
in the afternoon, while Peebles was
73 and 72.
Bob MacDonald of Buffalo and
George Sargent of the Interlachen
club of Minneapolis were tied for next
honors with 146. Sargent had 75
and 71 and MacDonald's score was 74
Evans played in excellent form all
day. He was .32 out in the morning,
taking 38 in, while in the afternoon
he was 36 out and 33 in. His putting
at all times was accurate. Many times
he sunk the ball from the far edge
of the green.
A rain last night made the course
rather heavy, but it was declared by
experts to be in splendid condition
for championship play.
If Evans retains his lead tomorrow
it will be. the third time in four years
that an amateur has won the open
championship. Francis Oulmet won
the title in 1913 and Jerome D.
Travers was last year's champion.

FLINGER, MAY HURL
Famous Indian Player Here
Yesterday Has 52 Strike
outs in Five Games.
William Gardner, one of the best
all around athletes ever turned out of
the Carlisle Indian school, may hurl
one of the games for Grand Forks on
July 4, when the Grafton team Is here
for a double header. The famous
redskin spent Wednesday and Thurs
day here and consulted with local
manager, W. E. Quigley, about com
ing down. At present he is with the
Fordville club, and may throw for
them today at Inkster, if the weather
permits playing the tournament games
Gardner had clippings showing that
he pitched five games this spring at
Cincinnati, and struck out 52 men in
the five contests, a record which needs
no explanation. Gardner has been
doing professional coaching in foot
ball, baseball and basketball for the
past seven years and has a country
wide reputation as an athletic teacher.
He is perhaps better known as a
football player than a pitcher, having
played on four of Glenn Warner's
famous teams, two years at fullback
and two years at end. In the last game
he played against Minnesota in 1907
he scored the two touchdowns and
Carlisle won 12-10. Capron made one
of his famous long dropkicks in that
game for the maroon and gold.
Grafton will arrive here either Sat
urday night or Sunday morning via
machine. Several of their reserves
will come down on the N. P. Sunday
noon. Sunday afternoon's game will
be played at 3 o'clock Monday's game
at 6:30 and two games July 4, one at
10 a. m. and the other at 3 p. m.
The locals will also have Arnold,
formerly of the Lakota team, and
at one time with the Louisville Amer
ican association team. He will be here
for several weeks and may also play
in the game with the All-Nations here
on Sunday, July 9-' Arnold is an all
around infielder and a heavy sticker.
He should make a valuable addition
to the club.
Purvis, who was out with the locals
the early part of the season, and who
has been averaging about three hits
a game in the city league since then,
will again don a local uniform. If
Purvis plays with the Grand Forks
club like he has been going for three
weeks he will strengthen materially.
Gill to Flay.
Andy Gill, who is at Inkster now,
will also be with the Grand Forks
club. Gill's hitting and field general
ship is invaluable. He has the repu
tation of not having struck out this
year, and has batted against some
first class pitchers. Braseth will
catch O'Reilly will pitch Sunday an
outsider will probably throw Monday
evening and Randall will hurl one of
the games on July 4. Gardner will
Inform the local management this
evening from Inkster whether or not
he can be here July 3 and 4.
After the double header July 4 th»
local team will give a big dance at
the Hotel Dacotah in an endeavor to
clean up the $150 deficit in their
funds. The dance will be open to all.
Tickets will be placed on sale today
in various parts of both cities.
