; HOODOOED AS ISI AL.
It Was Seranton's Oarao t'ntll the Ninth,
When Eagan Failed to Aeeept a Chance
to Retire the Side Wilkes-Barrc
Stopped Hitting After Getting a Lead
of Sis Kerns.
Scranton again bowed to the Inevi
table hoodoo and suffered another de
feat toy W'llkes-Barre. which makes
nine games lost out of eleven played
with that club.
By all the rules of equity, justice,
luck or good playing Scranton ehould
have won yesterday's game, and did
have. It won, for that matter, until.
In the ninth Inning when, with two out
and an unaccepted chance offered to
Tetlre the side, 'the hoodoo circled over
the field. Before the thing had flown
away Wilkes-Barre batted in seven runs
and prevented Scranton from scoring
In its half. Until that time Scranton
led by one run in as pretty a game
as one could reasonably wish to see.
When the ngony of that frightful
bombardment in the ninth was ended,
the mind of every doubter must have
admitted that something 'besides good
and bad ball playing permitted Wilkes
Barre ito win. Excepting one passed
. ball Miller, the new pitcher, had twirled
a better game 'than Keenan. and when
the ninth opened and Lesotte Hew out
to Meaney many in the audience
rtarted toward the gate. Sera n ton's
victory seemed doubly assured when,
after safe single. Griffin was forced
at second by Earl.
With two out Wente popped a fungo
hit back of third base, which Eagen
preferred to. stop on a bound rather
than take a desperate chance to catch
it. This one missed opportunity cost
Scranton the game, because McMahon
drew a base on 'balls and Smith, the
next one up, pushed a line single into
right field, scoring Earl and Wente and
giving Wilkes-Barre a lead of one run.
The Fatal Ninth.
Smith's hit was one of the hoodoo
features referred to. He has not hit a
ball for forty years, but -the hoodoo
started Us dire work and Smith's
Vicious swipe connected with the leath
er, and away it went. It's a safe bet
that Smith had his eyes shut when he
The last four runs In the Inning were
made on Keenan's triple. Lytle'a
triple. Bonner's double and a single by
Lexotte. Griffin, the last one up, flew
out to Eagan. A total of eleven alli
gators faced 'Miller in that one inning.
The Scranton cranks breathed for a
minute following Stearns' two-bagger
In the Scranton half, but Miller struck
out and Ward and Eagan were thrown
oat at first.
When the game began less than a
thousand persons had run the risk of
seeing the hoodoo get In its fine work,
but before the contest was ended possi
bly 200 more of the faithful had sneaked
. into the grounds. Each wore the look
characteristic of the ordinary Scran
ton crank at a game with Wilkes-Barre,
a scrt of uneasy expression indicating
fear of a slap In the face or injury to
a pet corn. They sat on tacks for
eight Innings and when. In the ninth,
the game switched around everybody
said to everybody else: "I told you so."
Then all hands smiled a yellow smile
and out of spite sat the thing out, ex
cepting the more tenderhearted who did
not wait Jo see the slaughter.
It Was really a fine, spirited, gingery
game, in which Ward, of the Infield,
and Butler, of the out-gardeners, ex
celled for Scranton, and Bonner did
. that same for his brother alligators,
Stearns, with two two-baggers; Lytle,
.with two doubles, led the punching.
It was unfortunate that Umpire
Timothy Seaside Hurst was called upon
to place everybody on more close de
cisions than one could shake a stick
at. He did his best and while Scranton
In several Instances seemed to get the
short end of it, the samo thing hap
pened to the Alligators. The worst
that ran i be said against the umpire
Is that he vas as satisfactory as any
human agency could be. -'The
Wilkes-Barre opened the sitting with
Jt smart hit to left for two bases. Bon

which was badly misjudged by Grif

third, but Scranton got the lead buck

Springfield. Mass., Aug. 14. The first
of the series between fdprlngfleld and
Providence was a tremendously excit
ing contest, and Springfield lost the
4me In' the ninth inning on singles by
Knight, Rogers and Cooney, which
scored two runs. The game was re
markable for its dirty work, Bassett
tripping three men at third. Bassett
came near (breaking up in a squabble
and Springfield played it tinder pro
test. The runs which Springfield scored

The Callfornlan was wild, and his de

the Toronto side, and fcy placing their

Buffalo wort the game in the Unit In

Touching on the umpire troubles In the
National leotiue, O. P, Caylor.suys In the
New York Herald nobody but President
Young is to be blamed for the condition of
affairs. He also advocates that Tim Hurst
and Charley Snyder, of the Eastern league,
lit secured. To this suggestion all true
friends of the game will register their de
cided affirmatives. Washington Post. No
"true friend of the gume" will ever wish
to see Non Com pus Mentis Snyder wear
an umpire's musk aguln. If he Is too In
competent for the Kustemv he Is too in
competent for any league. As for Hurst,
ho knows where his abllty Is best appre
ciated and will stay where he Is.
J'm Corbett, the pugilist,' has been
"signed" to pluy first base for Scranton
against Buffalo in today's game, and will
give a bug punching exhibition in front of
the grand stanil before the game. This Is
going a little, too far in hlppodromlng the
game. There are enough objectionable
features in base ball without ringing In
prise-fighters to draw a crowd.
Any such "feature" as Corbett would dis
gust the high class of patronage which
Springfield is supported by. Springfield
Union. Scranton won the game and Cor
bett and his brother played well. What
the public thought of tt was best shown in
the large attendance, which Included a
larger percentage of resectable women
than ever before attended a bull game In
Scranton. It was Corbett the ball pleyer
and not a prize-fighter that the public suw.
Whatever may the opinion of the Spring
field Union oracle or whatever may be the
customs of his somnolent town, Scranton
reserves the right to do as It pleases, pro
vided no objection comes from the club
Immediately concerned, as was Buffalo
and not 8prlngfleld. The Implication con
tained In the statement that the "Corbett
featurs would disgust the high class pat
ronage which supports 6printleld" comes
with mighty poor grace when Springfield
is largely supported by the other clubs In
the league. Scranton Is doing fairly well
with a sixth position club, and Springfield
Isn't doing much better with a winner.
If It were In ficrantotv'l place It might
need something worse -than the stimulus
of a "disgusting" Corbett feature. Stop
chewing, Mr. Oracle, and play ball.

the next quarter of a mile she dropped
back again, content to stick at Asote's
