Eli PASO, Tex., Aug. 5 It la tho Great
est pity In tho world Mint HI Paso and
Philadelphia are so far away from each
other. For a baseball gamo that every
"fan" In Philadelphia would glvfl his straw
hat to boo will bo played on tho mc3a of
Camp Stewart this afternoon. It 1b going
to be the hottest game, from both thermal
and sporting viewpoints, that nnybody from
Philadelphia ever saw any time lii hli llfo.
Tho First and Second Regiments, each
having won a game, and each having
iharpcned tho batting eyes of Its sluggers
and having groomed Its pitchers, nro out
for blood. They nro going to play the
first gamo fpr tho First Urlgado cup, do
nated by tho citizens of Philadelphia. They
havo soon a picture of this cup, theso soldier-athletes,
and they aro going to fight
and scrap and battle for It.
Tho baseball Gettysburg will begin at
1:30 o'clock. That Is too bad, because 3:30
on thU border Is G:30 o'clock In Philadel
phia, nnd 5:30 o'ctock here, when tho game
probably will be finished, Is 7:30 o'clock In
Philadelphia. To mako matters worse,
tho nearest pross telegraph wlro i It miles'
away, with a deep-rutted road Intervening.
To got tho score to Philadelphia this after
noon thorcforo Is Impossible.
Probably It's Just as woll, though, as
tho Phillies nnd Athletics, who make an
earnest business of baseball, aro deserving
of support.
But hero Is fan-food, up to the last
Captain "Walton Clark, Jr., a Princeton
star, has been chosen to start tho game In

team, picked Clark from his string of pitch

spoed boy, who struck out 14 men In his
last gamo, hold In reserve. Bradloy will
relievo his superior officer if tho latter's
arm develops stiffness or ho Is sent out on
guard duty.
Carrlgan, tho most vcrsatllo player In tho
First Regiment, has been detained, to use
strict military language, to bring homo tho
bacon for his team. Ho will begin tho
pitching for tho First Regiment, Sergeant
Major MacMulltn. manager, announced. Al
bert Shartlc, left-handed Washington Col
lego pitcher, will finish tho gamo If neces
sary. Solor Sergeant Harry Fryckberg,
captain of tho team, has been shoved up
to tho top of tho batting order, where his
trusty bludgeon Is expected to worry tho
enemy pitchers.
Both teams, strengthened and In flno con

This ruling was made to provent some war
like Tyrus Cobb, lllto Lloutenant Boeger,
from pilfering a liaao while- the catcher rubs
the sand out of his eyes.
No extra guard will be detailed by either
Colonel Allen, of the First, or Colonel Tur
ner, of tho Second, because, as the observ
ant umpire, Lieutenant Rlsler, of the First,
pointed out, there are no pop bottles and
not a single brickbat on all the dry plain.
However close tho game may become, no
disputes are expected to arise. A soldier

Probers Summon Policemen of
Tenderloin to Testify Monday.
Night Revels in Park
Kvcry member of the vice squad In this
city has been summoned to testify In tho
vlco Investigation nnd will appear beforo
tho Grand Jury Monday when that body
reconvenes after Its wcok-ond rccesi.
Startling disclosures nro expected when
these men nro questioned. They will bo
asked regarding tholr knowledge at first
hand of conditions In tho Tenderloin and
In other sections of tho city whero vlco
Tho Grand Jury through questions put
to tho squad will endeavor to learn who
are responsible for tho conditions In this
city which caused tho raid of July 15. Tho
Investigators say that they are not satis
fled with the testimony given them by
Charles I.ce, who was deposed as head of
tho vlco squad.
That tho Jury will continue Its Investiga
tion persistently Is Indicated by the re
marks of Henry S. Bernard, tho school
teacher-foreman of tho body.
"Jf necessary wo shall sit until Christ
mas," ho raid.
It Is believed that tho dissension which
existed In the ranks of the Jurors has been
smoothed over slnco Mr. Bernard becamo
foreman. Lack of harmony had apparently
handicapped tho Jury, but emphatic state
ments aro now mado that this has disap
peared. District Attorney Itotan prophesies that
the disclosures to bo made next week will
be the most startling yet.
In addition to tho vlco squad, iruardB of
the Falrmount Park police will be called
to testify on Monday. They will bo ques
tloncd regnrdlns visits to the Tark late nt
nlsht of parties who havo spent the early
part of tho evonlnR drinking nt cafes near
the borders of tho Park. Complaints havo
been received from persons of tho neigh
borhood that the participants In these mid--night
rovels have frequently been Intox
It Is said that detectives recently have
found In these park cafes women who,
previous to tho raid of July 16, wero
habitues of tho Tenderloin. It Is said that
these women are flocking to the park anJ
the cafes nearby, which they enter unes
corted. The guards will bo asked whether
It is possible to keep theso women under
surveillance when they enter the park
Members of tho vice squad also will bo
asked If they know anything regarding
conditions In Falrmount Park.
This turn to the Investigation is believed
to have been brought about by the receipt
by the Grand Jury of a letter from a woman
who signed her name "Mother."
The investigation may be aided by the
Issuance of summonses for proprietors of
cafes which are known to have "shady"
reputations. In pursuance of what has now
become a custom with the Grand Jury In
the present investigation all of the wit
nesses will be asked whether any attempt
has been made to Intimidate them or to
Influence their testimony In any way.
There Is no session of the Jury today, as
the body adjourned yesterday afternoon at
4 o'clock, not to meet again until 10 o'clock
Monday morning
New Argument Ordered on Appeal
Against Sheehan
President Judge Audenrled, of Court of
Common Pleas No. 4, has ordered further
argument on the "case stated," flled by City
Treasurer McCoach, raising the question
of tho right of Register of "Wills James B.
Sheehan to retain for himself the 3 per cent
fee for the collection for the State of col
lateral Inheritance tax. No date was fixed
for tho rearguments.
The case stated admits the facts of the
controversy, but questions the legality of
the point of law depended upon by the reg
ister to sustain his right to the fees, which,
It Is estimated, would amount to upwards
of 350,000 during hl3 term.
The case seems to hinge on the constitu
tionality of the act ot July 21, 1913, which
provides that "hereafter the salary of reg
isters of wills In every county of this Com
monwealth, containing a population of
1,500,000 and upwards, shall be $10,000 a
year. The registers In said counties shall
pay Into the county treasury all fees or
commissions of any kind earned by them
for services performed either for the county
or for the State or otherwise."

- the occasion of the second anniversary of Great Britain's entry into the
war as follows:
On this tho second anniversary of tho commencement of the
great conflict in which my country and her gallant allies nre en
