8evera) ' hundred Carhondule eratiks
swaggered into this city yesterday af
ternoon. They came .to root and cheer
and yell and tear their hair in frantic
endeavor to encourage Marty Swift's
enthusiastic agfireRtttlon of State
league hall players on to victory. The
rooting part of the programme was
carried out all rlsht but the Curbonilnle
players were spanked and sent homo.
Anderson, their pitcher, is probably
hearing yet the giiig-liiiT-riniiK music of
McUermott's batsmen, while the whole
(.legation of stars is looking lehlnd,
above and beside Itself to Ret a Rllmpse
tof the curves and shoots and things
that Johnson pitched. If Marty Swift's
hired men didn't dream of snakes and
lightning last night It was because they
, forgot all about Sir Thomas Johnson,
The Carbondale rooters were the peo
ple before the game. They came down
on the steam cars and' the trolley cars,
and some walked down, and more
walked back. They all clenched their
t-eth tightly upon cigars held at an
.angle, talked much, owned the earth
anil had all kinds of good money to bet.
This sort of thing, with a great deal of
noise on the side, lasted until the fourth
inning when with no runs in the Car
bondale column and two men on bases
and none out "lllg HIM" Mnssey, the
pride of all Anthraiitedom, struck out.
Strike-outs are not unusual things but
When the greut Wllllum Massey chases
ItiMhoots, jumps away from outshoots
und swipes high and mightily at slow
drops there is something very offensive
lir Denmark. Kill fanned, and Carbon
lale's heart was broken.
TEAM IN t'SOOD SHAPK.
Over 1,00 persons saw the game; In
this number are Included the severul
hundred t'aibondule cnthusinsts. lie
fore the entertainment was started
there appeared some excuse for believ
ing that the visitors would pull out
victorious as theirs was a team in
which every position was occupied by
its regular player while the whole
Scranton infield, excepting second base,
was composed of emergency men In
cluding Deltrlek. the ex-Cunadlan who
Is being given a trial at third, and
"Horkey" llrooks at short.
The hitting columns tell the story.
Kvery Scrunton batsman touched up
Mr. Anderson for at least two hits
uplece, while Chiles smote him four
times, one of the smotes being a homer
and another a double; Ward was sat
isfied wlth a triple, two singles and a
sacrilice, while Meuney's portion was
three merry singles and a bunt. Cnr
bondale would have been kept down to
n solitary run but for a muff by Meaney
In the fourth and two low throws by
Hrooks to first in the sixth.
Of t'ai'lionilHle's three errors, the one
by Sules In the seventh cost a run and
so did Luby's In the eighth. Cargo's
error did not affect the result.
JoIhimoii was never solved. In only
one Inning, the eighth, did he permit

two hits, and in that rase the two were
widely separated. His control was
splendid. That Carbondale wasn't hit
ting in hard luck Is shown by only six
ilyouts to the Scranton outfield.
"Purkey" Brooks learned more than
theory and the alue of x at Princeton,
tlis experience of four years as a
'varsity shortstop was of some profit
to him and he showed this yesterday.
He accepted nine of eleven chances, and
some of the acceptances were beauts.
His two errors were for low throws to
first after making a phenomenal stop
in each instance. Only one of the er
rors cost a run.
THE NEW PLATER
Deltrlek. the trial third baseman, had
no opportunity to show his lielding abil
ity. Stick work is said to be his weak
ness but his three tlyouts to the outfield
were sky-scraiiers and he made two
hits for three bases. Meaney redeemed
himself for his mult in the fourth,
which caused a run, by pulling In a long
hard drive by l.uby in the sixth.
Meaney got It near the fence at right
center and was on the jump at the time.
Had it been safe it would have been
good for three bases and it would have
scored Massey, who later died at sec
ond. Raffcrty did some pretty back
McQuald in left Harden made three
hair-raising running catches for Car
hondale ami Lucey did some clever
catching. He was weak with the stick
but gives promise of being heard from
later. Sal-s' third base playing was
snappy and brilliant, and Massey
plaved his usual strong game at first.
With the hits 23 to 6 and the detailed
score to isinder over, a detailed re
sume of the plays seems superfluous.

Springfield, Mass., April 29. Manager
Hums said today that Tom Power, the
Spracute first baseman would be in this
city and play with the Springfield team
Friday in the opening championship
game against Scranton.
Hurna maintains that the contract
signed by Power in September cannot
hold under the national agreement, and
that President Young's decision will
not be sustaiiiLd by the board. He will
fight the case on these grounds.
Power will captain the local team
while he plays here.
When shown the above dispatch last
night, Mr. Simpson, of the Scranton
"Scrunton will refuse to play the
opening game with Springllcld or any
other game with that club If the
Springlield management attempts to
put Power In the game. I shall wire
Presidit P. T. Powers, of the Eastern
league, to this effect tonight.
"I'nderstand, we have no fliiht with
Power (the player) In this matter.
President Young, of the National
board, decided that Power was proper
ly reserved by Syracuse. He has a
perfect right to appeal from this deci
sion to the National board, but while
his npeal Is pending he must keep off
the diamond. It sfems to me thut
Power has been misguided In the mat
ter. "I don't think it' Is his own choice
that he goes to Springfield. Evidently
Manager Rums has made Power be
lieve he has n, right to pluy with
Springfield while his appeal Is pending.
We want only our rights In the deal.
We have purchased Power's release,
and we will not submit to his playing
elsewhere until the .National board says
he 1-ah do so.
"Manager McDermott will get posi
tive Instructions not to begin a gaino in
Springfield If Power Is on the grounds
and wearing a Springfield uniform."
First Baseman Hassamer and Short
stop Hutchinson, of the Loulsvlllcs, will
pcsltlvely pipy with Scranton. The ne
gotiations were completed yesterday
andVhe players will reach Springlield
In ample time for Saturday's game.
Four hundred dollars wns paid for
their release. Hassamer at first de
clined to play here and a new deal was
begun for Hutchinson. Hiissamor
changed his mind during" yesterday af
ternoon and submitted his terms.
Transportation money was sent to
Louisville by telegraph lust night with
instructions for the men to leave at
once for Springfield.
The Scranton players will leave hole
at noon today. They will reach Spring
field In time for u fpiod night's lest.
The first game will see the men In
much the same positions us jcHft iiluy.
excepting thut Mugulro will play third
and Deltrlch short. Brown or Johnson
will pitch. In Saturday's game It is
likely that Eagan, Meaney and Chiles
will compose the outfield and Hassam
er. Ward, Deltrlek and Hutchinson the
infield. With Hess In the game, the
only two players whose hitting will be
uncertain will be Deltrlek and the
