The Springfield game was varied by
an encounter between Pitcher Uruber

the result does not change the posi

They cinched the argument in the Ilfth

NEW SCRANTON PLAYERS
Pitchers Esper and Corbett and Catcher
Bowerraan, of the Baltimore.
Have Been Secured.
Manager Griffin has secured for
Scranton Pitchers Esper and Corbett
and Catcher Bowerman of the Balti
mores. One of the two pitchers, prob
ably Esper, is expected to reach here
early today and the other will report
before the club starts on the trip tomor
row noon. Bowerman recently hurt his
hand In practice and may not report
until the club returns home.
Baltimore won 10 and lost 12 games
with Esper in the box last year. He
pitched the only game won by. Baltl
more In the Temple Cup series with
Cleveland, holding the Reds down to
live singles and not having a pitching
error recorded against him. That was
one of the most remarkable pitching
feats of the season. He ranked four
teenth. among the forty-five pitchers in
the league who pitehed fifteen or more
games. Once this year he held Cleve
land down to four hits.
Corbett, who is a brother of Corbett,
the pugilist, is one of the seven pitch
ers who have been carried by Baltimore
since the season opened. He pitched
two or three National games and
showed himself strong enough for Na-
tlonal company. At no time has the
Baltimore management thought of
loaning him until now, when it is cer
tain that the old and tried pitchers on
the Oriole staff are in shape to finish
Catcher Bowerman Is said to be a
cntcher of the first water. Baltimore
would have used him to relieve Robin
sjn oecarli nnMv but for Bowerman's
I lack of Know ice'v of the big league's
In addition to the three National
players, the Barons will probably be
strengthened by Monday by the presence-cm
the team of a minor league
player who is considered one of the best
men In the business In his particular
position, bin who has been prevented
by peculiar eircumstanceii
from being j
obtutned by several clubs who wanted
This afternoon's game with Syracuse
will probably attract a large attend
ance. The Barons and the Stars have
each a game to their credit In the pres
ent series and today's game will be the
decisive game. If Brown returns from
Baltimore or If Esper reports in time
for the game the probability is that the
Stars will lose, as thoy are easy victims
for a south-wing. Harper Is the only
pitcher available if neither of the other
two report. He has pitched twice this
week, which may reduce his chances of
winning, but he Is a player who takes
the best of care of himself and If he is
in condition to do as well as he did
against the Stars Thursday they will
cease to twinkle.

LUBY IN JAIL.
('atelier Pntclirn Has Skipped the
Cnrbondiilu Base Ball Team.
Special to The Tribune.
Carbondale, June 19. The Carbondale
base ball team left town today with
the exception of Pitcher Jack Luby and
Catcher Patchen. For personal and
other reasons these two players pre
ferred to remain behind and will here
after be unable to play In any lea sue
The kick commenced Thursday when
the two men refused tCdon their unl
forma for the game. They were riven
another chance yesterday to take their
old positions, but as they still refused.
Secretary Benton wired to President
Young and had them' officially black
The men were said their salary on

evidently Intended to skip the club to
gether. Rumors that they would leave
spread abroad and Proprietor Williams,
of the Wall street hotel, had Luby ar
rested. It seems Luby and his wife
boarded at the hotel last winter and
this spring had a board bill amounting
to nearly 300. Luby gave Mr. Williams
orders on his salary, and It was because
the directors of the association honored
them that Luby kicked. The salary did
not cover the entire bill, however, and
bo Mr. Williams had the warrant Is
sued. Luby pleaded guilty of obtaining
board on false pretenses, and aa he
could not furnish ball was placed in
Patchen has left for Hornellsville,
where he will play with an Independent
Although both the men had been play
ing well their loss does not necessarily
weaken the Carbondale team. Rafter
Is competent to till Patchen's place.
Anderson and O'Gara will pitch for the
team and when not in the box will pro
bably take turns in right field.

games' is as follows;

The Barons have but one postponed
game to play and that Is at Providence.
All night debauchery is not conducive to
good base ball pluying. It might be re
marked that at least one Scranton player
can testify to the truth of this statement.

Bangor Wednesday. Pawtuckct made ten
hits and Bangor eight, and the former

With a sutlluient number of pitchers
tnere is no good reason wny tne H.irons
shouldn't be further up In the race. Team
work has Improved since "Sandy Grif
fin took tho helm, and the players Indi
vidually seem to put more heart and spirit
Into their work. A "lusher" on the team
Is a bad example, however, and will
undo In one minute more than a manager
can do In two. If a player with cobwebs m
his brain earns his salary he is an excep
tion to a rule.
If Arlie Latham Is not fast enough for
Scranton. for goodness sake what Is he
good for," says the Syracuse Courier,
What's he good for? "Arlie Latham stole
five bases yesterday!" Thnt's what the
Courier man wrote, and seems to be a

STATE ROUTES FULLY DESCRIBED
Set of Fonr Books, One for Kaca
Division of the State, Are Being
Compiled by SecretarrTreasurer
CollinsLocal Consul Will Assist.
To Be Ready for Distribution
Since P. S. Collins accepted the ap
pointment of secretary-treasurer of the
Pennsylvania division of the League of
American Wheelmen one of his pet
schemes has been for an Improvement
In the present method of giving road
information to members. The present
division book Is by far the most complete
collection of Information concerning
the roads of Pennsylvania, and one of
the best books of the kind ever pub
lished, but it has been Mr. Collins' Idea
to give each member detailed informa
tion concerning the roads in his par
ticular territory Instead of information
less in detail regarding the state as a
whole. The idea was at once indorsed
by the balance of the executive com
mittee, and the plan Is now in a fair
way to be carried out.
Arrangements have Just been 'com
pleted whereby a set of four books, to
cover the various sections of the Btate,
are to be gotten out by next spring un
der the direction of Frank H. Taylor,.
and one of these books will be sent to
every new member and also to those
who renew their membership.
INCLUDES NEW JERSEY DISTRICT
The four books are to cover respec
tively the northeastern part of the
state; a territory within a radius of 100
miles of Philadelphia including the
New Jersey riding district; the central
section and that territory west ot the
Allegheny mountains. Each book will
contain a new colored map, drawn on a
large scale, which will show the mater
al and condition of every road In the
district covered, as well as numerous
smaller maps of special sections, which
will be embodied In the next. The
books proper will not only give detailed
directions for traversing every road in
the' territory covered, but will give
much valuable information regarding
points of Interest, together with lists
of local consuls, hotels at which re
duced rates are given to league mem-
era, official repair shops, etc.
To make the lnforniullor complete
and accurate Mr. Taylor, who will be
assisted by Chairman Randall, of the
road book committee, will put In the en
tire summer in gathering the necessary
data, and the more Important districts
will be covered by him awheel. Each
local consul will also be called upon to
make a report of the roads in his par
ticular territory, and in this way much
additional information will be secured.
When completed the books will prob
ably be the most complete collection of
road data ever published to cover a
large state, and ought to prove a valu
able means of Increasing membership
in the organization.
FOR LOCAL RIDERS.
It Is undoubtedly a fact that the vast
majority of riders do not ride more than
a hundred miles from their homes once
a year, and for this reason detailed in
formation concerning the territory in
which he resides must be of more in
