Tue Base Bail ResuME.—The |
River League season has about closed |
and the “Governors” of Bellefunte are
the winners of the pennant by probably
the most remarkable record ever made
by & champion nine. Having played |
twenty-three games, our boys were the |
victors in eighteen and the vanquished |
in five. Only one scheduled game was
prevented and that is still unplayed, and
the indications are that it never will be
played, as the Demorests will probably
prefer not to play at all to playing on
Beilefonte grounds and receiving their
usual medicine of defeat. The wave of
base ball enthusiasm struck our ‘‘sports’’
rather late in the spring, but when it
did come, ard the first River League a
schedule was prepared, it required but a
few days to raise a subscription in the
town amounting to some six or seven
hundred dollars and secure a nine to re-
present us in the first scheduled game at
Renovo. The lot of “starting the ball
rolling,” as the saying goes, fell to
Belletonte, and so on the evening of the
third of July, the first organized nine
to represent Bellefonte in the River
League started to Renovo to play the
strong and experienced team of that
place on the following day. Lack of
practice lost our first league game. On
the 5th of July nothing daunted, they
met the ¢‘crack” Demorests on the Wil-
liamsport Park grounds and took them
into camp to the sweet tune of 8-7.
Defeat had been wiped out by victory
and the sixth of July found the victors
on their way to Tyrone to try conclu-
sions with the players of that hustling
town. But as is well known the Ty-
roners always play their strongest game
at home, and the bats of the Bellefonte
boys seemingly having become filled
with holes made it a not difficult task to
send the team away defeated by a score
of 9-4, but with the determination beat-
ing in every breast of soon showing
their right and ability to deserve the
name of ‘*‘Governors,” which was ap-
plied to them long before they started on
their second trip. Observations made
during the first tour revealed the fact
that material of the strongest character
would have to be secured at any cost to
earn for Bellefonte the winning position
with which alone our citizens would be
satisfied. Telegrams were sent broad-
cast for players of reputation, and with-
in a couple of weeks a team of players
was secured who were not only stars in
their respective position, but perfect
gentleman also, and exceptionally con-
genial with one another. It required
but a game or two to display their skill
on the ball field and ever since they
have worn the black sweaters with the
word ‘‘Governors” across the breast. At
this time the league consisted of the
Demorests, Renoyo, Tyrone and Belle-
fonte nines but later Bloomsburg and
Milton were admitted, the latter dis-
banding after playing but seven or eight
games. The only game lost on the
home grounds was to the Demorests
who played and defeated us before our
“Governors” had come upon the scene.
When the latter were in their
places they werealmost invincible. They
were Roberts, catcher ; Hodson and
Meany, pitchers; Magee, first base;
Reed (captain) second base; Wetzel
third base ; Miller, short stop ; Walters,
left field ; Steele centre field; and
Howell, right field. Their first trip was
attended by marvelous success in face of
the heaviest odds. They played six
games and won six. Such a record
could not be surpassed. They at once
out classed all their opponents, winning
every game where the umpire was at all
fair, and making for themselves a record
to which they will ever refer with pride.
In their series with Tyrone they won
four games hy scores of 8.2, 15-3, 8-3,
and 13.7, lost two by scores of 9-4 and
10-8. They defeated Milton by scores
of 13-1 and 27-3. From Bloomsburg
they won three games by scores of 13-10,
16 8'and 3-1, losing but one and through
an umpire’s robbery by the score of 4-0.
In the series with Renovo, they won
five games by scores of 8-1, 54, 15.8,
3-2 and 5-3 and lest but one by a score
of 8-1. The Demorests who for a time
were generally regarded as pennant
winners, were defeated by the “Gover-
nors’’ by scores of 8-7, 17-1, 7-5, and 2-1.
The Demorests won one game by a score
of 6-1 and have as yet failed to play the
sixth and last of the series which was
necessarily postponed on account of
rain. Summing up, the games won
numbered eighteen, they lost five and
one postponed. A record brilliant be-
yond compare. Ye worthy ‘Governors’
you have acquitted yourselves most
creditably, you have by your gentle-
manly conduct won the admiration of a
host of friends, you have by your athlet-
ic skill won not only glory for your-
selves but for Bellefonte, who is proud to
claim you as her own and we are sure
that we voice the sentiment of the
community when we express the desire
to see each and every one of you back
among us next year filling the same
places on the field and in the esteem of
our citizens. Farewell for the succeed-
ing months and happy success follow
you in whatever business you engage
until you return to us in the base ball
season of 1894.

-—The failure of Liveright, McCoy
& Co., one of the largest soft coal opera-
ting firms in the Clearfield region, was
announced at their Philadelphia office
last Thursday and it is thought that the
foreseen crash is what caused the late
Col. McCoy’s suicide as he was a mem-
ber of the firm, being cashier of the
Tyrone bank. Judgments aggregating
$81,428,834 have been entered against
the firm.

finishes the post office appointments in
Centre. There are the Lemont, Millheim
and Pine Grove appointments which
have been due some time waiting for the
decision of the department, for each of
which there are several applicants, the
one at Clarence for which there is but
one Democratic applicant, and the Phil-
ipsburg and Bellefonte offices which are
not yet due, lgaving but about a half-
dozen appointments yet to make. Of
those appointed four filled the sam®

of the legislature giving the children of
soldiers of the late war the privilege of
attending the public schools in the dis!
tricts outside of their own homes is not
generally understood and frequent in-
quiries are received at the department of
public instruction for an interpretation
of it. Deputy Superintendent Stewart
says the law does not give to the chil-
dren the right to go to schools of ad-
joining districts from their own homes
the same as to schools in the districts in
which they reside. He interprets the
act to mean that such children must at
least have a temporary residence in the
district where they attend school. Mr.
Stewart says an arrangement made by
these children or their parants by which
they would temporarily reside in the
district in which they desire to attend
school would entitle them to school
privileges therein, but without such an
arrangement they cannot claim admis-
sion under the terms of the act.

‘planting trees, ete.
County Superintendent Gram ley has
made kis report of the condition of the
public schools of the county, from which
we get the following facts :
“No enthusiastic spirit has bean shown to
improve scheol grounds by way of fencing,
While a few districts are
moved to a just sense of duty in this respects
too many utterly neglect this work, by provid-
ing no grounds at all, or locating the houses on
the edge of some forest, where private proper-
ty in the form ot a large uncultivated domain,
is supposed to answer the purposes of that
playground. Many out-houses are in bad con-
dition, but recent legislation will, no doubt
bring about much nseded improvement.”
“We still have a number of poor houses, but
they are fast disappearing. and giving way to
a popular demand for better facilities. In a
number of instances I have noticed that
teachers succeeded in arousing an interest on
the part of patrons by way of decorating the
the school rooms,and thereby make school
life home-like. Some have shown taste in
this direction that is highly creditable. Do
we err when we say that beautifully decorated
school rooms are indicative of good dicipline
and successful teaching ?” “
‘Seven new houses were built during the
year. Space forbids to give details ofeach
one; all are good buildings, furnished with
improved seats and desks. The house in
building, containing four rooms,—~1 model of
convenience and comfort, and certainly re-
flects great credit upon the directors under
whose supervision it was erecied.”
“Credit must be given to some of our boards,
for the interest shown in furnishing school
rooms with valuable apparatus; many mote
boards should do likewise, but a suggestion
kindly given may not be amiss. Buy the
needed apparatusat fair prices, but give no
audience to agentswho come asking exorbi,
tant figures for ordinary material, and} whose
sole object is to deplete your treasuryand re-
plenish their own purses accordingly ; also
require yourteachers to use the apparatus
The increased state appropriation has stim.

crease the teachers salaries, while in eleven

quite a number of districts was diminish.
ed, on account of the increased liberality of
the state, thus necessitating a misapplication
of the appropriation.”
The above, with the exception of
brief references to the kindness of the
retiring superintendent, Columbus day,
the county institute proceedings and
the dilatorious results of allowing chil"
dren to absent themselves from school, is
the report, us made to the State depart-
Superintendent Gramley in generaliz-
ing his report, has followed the |prece-
dents furnished by his predecessors, but
we doubt, if in doing so, if as much
good has been accomplished, as if he had
boldly struck out on a new practice and
given - each district credit for such im-
provements as they have made,; and
have told the public plainly what dis-
tricts“in the county are negligent in
furnishing buildings, books and supplies)
in ‘beautifying grounds, and in? that
general interest in the control of the
schools that is so necessary tojmake them
According to the report but eight dis-
tricts in the county have increased the
salaries of teachers and but eleven
lengthened their school term, while a
number have decreased their tax levy,
asa consequence of the increased) liber-
ality in stale appropriations. What
districts these are the publicis left to
conjecture, and just here is where the
short coming, in such a report is made.
There is nothing that ‘stimulates good
work, like proper credit being given for
that work, and the generalization of a
report, without indicating what districts
deserve credit for eommendable efforts
to improve their schools or sehool pro-
perty, leaves those who have done their
duty in the same unenviable position, so
far as public appreciation goes, that the
indifferent, negligent or incompetent oc-
It would be a good thing in future
reports, we believe, if the superintendent
would specify what districts are doing
the best they can and in what districts
directors fail in the ;pertormance of the
duties they owe to their own districts
and to the State alike.
A counterfeit $5 silver certificate has
been putin circulation by shovers of
the “queer” in several of the eastern
cities. It is of the letter B series, issue
of 1886, with a portrait of General
Grant. Itis said that the work on the
bill is dark and scratchy and the figures
and numbering are not uniform. The
back is of a dark bottle green also, in-
stead of the yellowish sea green of the
original. The counterfeiters have also
made a curious error. In the old style
silver certificates with dark green backs,
a large brown seal was used. The new
style certificates have a small pink seal.
The counterfeit has this pink seal in
connection with the green back. The
threads of the genuine note are imitated
by black lines. Some of these notes are
in circulation.— Ez.
Hick’s Says WE WiLL HAVE A
CoLp WiNTER.—! Winter, according
to Dr. Irl. Hicks, will begin with
storms of more or less severity about the
middle of November, and ‘‘March will
prolong it al the last. We may reason-
ably say that we expect upon the whole,
a hard winter.” He adds a word of ad-
vice: ‘We candidly think that tne
man who begins early and prepares well
for a.disagreeable and hard winter will
have no regrets, but cause of rejoicing.”

more or less of a figurein our county
court since 1885, was settled last Friday
when after a two weeks triala jury re-
turned a verdict in favor of the defend-
ant. The history of the case is 43 fol-
lows: Clinton Loyd brought suit
against the Lehigh Valley Coal Co., to
recover a tract of supposed coal land in
Snow Shoe township comprising about
two thousand acres. The land origin-
ally belonged to the Snow Shoe land
company from whom the Lehigh Co.,
purchased, Loyd having claimed that it
was vacant and he paid the taxes and
bought it at Commissioners’ sale. De-
fendant showed a title back to July
1st, 1792 however, and got a verdict ac-
cordingly. The case’ has been tried
many times.

we are unable to see, but they did and

‘“ Governors” won their last game of the
season on Friday last, when they de-
feated the “crack’’ team from Corning
N. Y. after victory seemed assured to
the latter. . A large crowd from Belle-
fonte and the Pennsylvania State Col-
lege attended the game. By two or
three careless errors of the home boys,
the visitors were enabled to secure a lead
of three runs the score standing 6 to 8,
which the Governors’ could not over-
come for several innings. But in the
glorious ninth with an amount of nerve
rarely witnessed on a ball field our boys
went to the bat and with a click, click:
click, drove out singles, doubles and
tripples until five men had crossed the
home plate. It was a wonderful piece
of work and the pandemonium that
reigned supreme while the boys were
scoring the runs that meant victory after
all, evinced the thorough appreciation
the crowd felt for the noble efforts. Tha
score at the close of the contest was 8
to 6 in favor of the “Governors.” The
next day the latter disbanded and went
to their respective homes.
