HAVEllFORD, Pa Sept, 28. As a re
ult of tho third round of match play In
the Invitation tournament of the Merlon
Cricket Club here today the two remain
ing Boston representatives were elim
inated. Playing extremely steady golf, C. B.
Buxtpn. of Huntingdon Valley, defeated
J, H. Sullivan, of the Brookline Country
Club, 1 up and 3 to play. It had been
expected thnt Sullivan would reach the
final, but Buxton won on his merits. The
Huntingdon Valley man showed much
better Judgment than his opponent. Time
and again Sullivan misjudged distances,
and it frequently led him into trouble.
Buxton's approach shots and putting
were extremely accurate, and It was In
this department of the game that he
completely outplayed his opponent.
B, W. Estabrook, the second of the Bos
tonlans, succumbed to U M. Washburn,
of Merlon, but only on the 18th hole. The
match was the best contested of the'
morning, and Washburn deserved, np lit
tle credit, for at one stage of the match
he was -four down.
