BUSINESS MEN WIN.
Nolan's Filching Provai an Enigma
for the Olyphant Browne.
ffecial to the Hcranton Tribunt
Olyphant. Pa., June 21. A gam of
b;ise bull was pleyed here today ba
twoen a picked nine from Olyphant and
Scranton aud the Olyphant Browns. It
was a game abounding in rocky, yellow
play, bad judgment, foolish baserun
tiing, wild throws and everything that
goes to make tip a gnms that is a dis
graoe to the national pastime. Potner
and Bchlaeger were in the points for
the Browns and Nolan and Gillespie for
the business men. Of the two. Nolan
was by far th most effective, giving
the heavy hlttors of the Browns but six
bits, while Posntr was touohed np for
a beautiful fonrtaon, every on of wl lob
came just it ws3 ni-odcd.
The tmne was lost to the BruwnB af
ter the third inning when the business
men with three hits, one of which wes
a home run by K that plied, np three
i ons. AftT that the Browns were not
in it. Time after time they would get
men on bases with good cluuc-is to
score, but with foolish base running
and good head work of Scran ton's iv
leastd pitcher, Nolan, they failed to
score. The first luge play of Griffiths,
of the Browns, was a revelation to th
Olypbant people. That generally steady
player is credited with no less than
tive errors, aud out of four times at
the Pat he struck out throe times.
Outside of the pitching by Nolan the
only redeeming feature of the whole
game was t tie play of both short stops,
Welsh, of tho Browns, with six assists,
and McIIale, of the Business Men, with
fonr, Mcllule having one error which
was almost excusable. Score by iu
nlnes: BUSINESS MEN. I BROWN'S.

WILL SCRANTON MAKE CHANGE?
Bingharnton days It Will Finish Soa
son in Eastern League- -Other
Opinion on tho Subject.
Fpeeial to the Scranton Tritium.
BlNQHAUTONi N. Y., Jnuo 21. At
the meeting of the Board ot Directors
of the Eisteru League here today the
playo 1 May 29 was credited as decided
by tho umpire to Wilkes-Barre
The oiler of the Albauy N. Y , State
League Club to purchase the traucblse
of the Biughamtons was refused. The
local directors have determined on
Sticking the season out. No notion was
taken regurdiug the admitting of the
Scranton, Pa Lvague team into the
Eititern League. E. F. Bogert, of
Wilkes Barre, was iu attoudauce.
Tho following telegram on the satno
subject was sent one from Wilkes
Barre last night: ''It is reported here
tonight ou good authority that the man
agement of the Scranton b ; will team
: bueu changed. A deal is beiug
mado today to nave Binghnmtnn dis
band and allow Scranton a place in tne
eiutsru leugue. Should mis occur,
Scrauton will play the fir-st game hero
with the borne team on the 4th of
Manager Kunche, of Syracuse, was
iu the city all day yeaterday, but would
say little about bis miision Here, or
whether or uot it wxs connected with
league business. He expressed the
opinion last uight that the Biugbamlon
cub would uot last uutil July 1 He
would like to see Scrauton iu the
l'tecident Patrick Powers, of the
Eastvru league, was expected in the
city last uight to consult with the local
directors ou the subject of taking an
Eastern league franchise, but did not
appeur, nor gtiad any message bseu re
ceived from him up to a late hour.
If Scrauton can go iuto the Eisturn
leagns uuemcuuibered by the Bing
bamton's percentage and is also given
some assistance in the way o utreugth
eniug lb olab, tho stockholders of the
Scrauton club are in favor of making
the change. Wilkes-Barre would lik u
very much to see Scrautou in the East
The rnmor that Scranton wonld ac
cept a franchiss in the Eastern league
has caused much comment in State
league cities, and The Tribune was
queried last night several times by pa
pers in State league cities as to the
truth of the rumor.
Several weJks ago tho Scrauton club
would have been owued and controlled
by au aggregation of representative
local business men, including several
well known mine operators, lawyers
and mercbauts if the present stock
holders had asked a more reasonable
pries for their stock. Harry P. Simp
sou has conctived the idtu that with
proper munagt ment, a modern park
and membership in the Essteru league
the club repres.-utlug Scrauton would
prove a paying investment.
An option was obtained on tbs John
son lake propsrty from the Lackawanna
Iron and Steel romp my aud the club's
stockholders requested to name a price
for their stock. The figure set by the
holders was $300 psr Bhiire, which sum
Mr. Simpson uud his friends refused to
Miy, The par value of the stock is $30
..ud tbo prospective owners were will
ing to pay over double this sum, but
stopped negotiations when the ficti
tious valuo was mentioned.
Mr. Simpson said to a Triuune re
porter last night: "Our idea was to so
cure the franchiso of the Bingharnton
or Syracuse club or some other E istern
league representation, merge the Scrau
ton players and from the two clubs
retain a winning team, We would
then enter the Eistern league and are
egotistical enough to think we could
manage to make money and at tho same
time merit the public's snpport.
'"We proposed ereotiug a modern
grnnd stand and to put the sport in this
city on such a level that it would be
appreciated by the better olement. In
addition we intended to equip tho park
witn a track, field, and all tho appur
tenances of a complete utblattiu ground
where tournaments, bicycl-j rac;s and
athletic contests of all kinds could be
"The idea of establishing such a p irk
has not been given np, neither has the
project of gaining oontrol of the Scran
ton Base Ball club been relinquished.
However, we shall not piy a ficticious
price for the stock."
It is understood on the best of au
thority that Pat Powers has been ap
proached iu tho interest of Mr. Simp
son and his collengnes and has signi
fied his willingness to further their
plans to nny extent which lies In bis
power. Whatever may be the out
come of tho various Ideas and projects
nnder way, THE Tiuhunr Is Informed
that tho Simpson contingent means
buidness and, if their plans are ful
filled, will spend enough mousy to
bring in a finanoinl return and at the
seme time please tho public.
WANTS TO BUY HODSON.
Manager Eillle Barnit Has Offered $600
Lonisvllle wants to buy Pitcher
Hodson from the Scranton club. Man
ngor Billin Barnie of that clnb has
offered $500 for him. Yesterday he
telegraphed the directors of the Scran
ton clnb that he would arrived in the
city at 11. 15 lsBt night and niked for a
confrenc with the Scranton directors
on the subjeot.
He failed to arrive at that honr but
will undoubtedly be here this morning.
It is very probable that Hodson will
be sold and Pitcher Wallace of Frank
lin and Pitcher Black now in this city
giro a trial in his place.
