Won by 25 year old H. D. Bates, of Ridgetown, Ontario after 8 men tied at 25: J. L. Smith, H. D. Bates, C. F. Ayling, J. R. Malone – 2nd, Col. A. G. Courtney, Dr. A. A. Webber, Tom A. Marshall, and Phil Daly – 3rd.

"The Parker gun which Phil Daly Jr. shot in the Grand American Carnival and won third prize, was one which he borrowed from A. W. Du Bray, the Parker representative. Daly never saw the gun until the day before the big event, when he killed 15 out of 16. In the big event he was shot out on the 32d bird."

James Malone, the winner of second place, shot a hard race, but luck was against him. His first barrel kills in the shoot-off were simply marvelous, many fast birds being doubled up without a flutter the instant the gun cracked. He used a Parker gun, weighing 7-15, 3 1/2 drams Schultze powder in U.M.C. Trap shells, 1 1/4 oz. 7 1/2 and 7 shot.

I wonder if the Parker Daly borrowed from duBray was his AA Pigeon T/A hammer gun?
