-ARCHBALD'S SUN SETS
ON PUFFYS FIELD
w.The Borough Two-Year-Olds Sur
prised Themselves by Their Tricky
Playing, but Owney McAndrew's
Pitching Was Too Much for Them
and "Tho Pots" Win Out by a
'' Bcoro of 4-3, Notwithstanding the
' StronuouBness of the Archbald
Hooters A Oood Oame.
If any ot the "knockers" or nny
Archbald mnn desires to know how
Owney McAndrew our Owney can
' jiltch, lot hlin ask any of tho players
on tho Archbald team. Nine of them
yesterday had rubber bats or bats with
holes In them when they tried to con-
' ncct with Owney 's mystiners, and only
live of them could hit the ball safely.
That's why the score was 4 to 3 In
favor of Carbondale, and Hint's why
, the conceit was taken out of the "Pot
l'olcrs," and they wore sent home, mak
ing disgusting faces as they swallowed
the bitter pill of defeat. We admit,
not to have sugar-coated the pill, but
the "Pets" have been so busy, so very,
very b usy, winning games that Mana
ger Tappan overlooked this detail. "We
beg tho kind Indulgence of our town-
, betwecn-thc-culm-dump friends for this
' Despite the strenuousness of the
Archbaldlans, their chief characteris
tic no thanks for this touch of ilattery
the game was a good one. Johnnie
Dougher, and he had on a fresh foout
onlere, said It was the best game that
the Crescents ever won, but as Johnnie
Is a thorough Arachbaldlan, we'll over
look his enthusiasm and say it was a
good game; a' snappy game; a game
that was a credit to the fielders of
the Archbald team, and to doughty
Dougher, their pitcher, a bright-haired
young man, 16 years old, the Archbald
people said, who when he becomes a
man, is likely to is sure to shine in
tho base ball firmament.
Dougher, hats off to you. You had
better come to Carbondale, to a base
ball atmosphere, where the climate will
agree with you and where you can
develop wonderfully, as you will In
time; but slowly, we venture to re
mark, if you persist in remaining In
the ancient borough.
We anticipate that Archbaldlans will
have a whole culm pile of extravagant
claims about the superior work of their
team; but who would begrudge this
harmless diversion to the boroughltes?
We can afford to be generous. We
won. That's glory enough for the
"Pets." If the Archbaldlans care to
pay their cash for special street cars
to come to Carbondale and wear out
their vocal cords, who cares? It won't
hurt us and It probably amused them.
This special car came through Car
bondale about 9.30 last night with a
band and an Archbald crowd, which is
the same thing for noise, and a pla
card with the score 5-4 in favor of
Archbald. In their delirium, perhaps
they imagined they got two runs in
the last Inning, which a man In Sala
manca or even Honesdale, had as much
right to claim. But we will discuss
To the game again. Archbald got
three runs, but none of them were
earned. Cuff apparently had an off day
at first base and one of his errors, a
muffed ball thrown by Flannery, at
second; let In three runs. The other
run was made on a long throw from
left by Itosler, after a fly catch on the
outer edge of the field. It was a hard
chance, the ball reaching the home
plate a few second too late.
On the other hand, Carbondale
earned two of its runs, which would
. leave the score 2-0. Murray also had
an off day and made errors, which
The "Pets" found Dougher. They
batted him all over the lot; he struck
out only two men, but In our hitting
wo did not keep them down and they
sailed Into the hands of fielders. Mc
Donald, In left, had four good catches;
Boland, at third, made two wonderful
catches, and J. A. Gaughan, at center,
had two good captures. Here were
eight Hies, a good deal more than ordl-
. nary work for fielders.
But Owney our Owney! Ho showed
Dougher, though Dougher Is a good
one, how to pitch. Ho had nine strike
outs and gave only five hits. Dougher
struck out two men and gave Carbon
dale seven safe ones. Let Archbald
take this record and ponder over it;
'twill do them good perhaps. But one
' shouldn't gamble on It.
Itosler, the "Pets' " fearless fielder,
had another great duy, making two
phenomenal catches, with lightning
returns ot the game. His batting was
"it," too, for his two-bagger brought in
one of the four runs. Murray also
smashed the ball, having two hits,
bringing In the winning run by a two
bagger in the eighth. Cuff had a two
bagger and Emmet t had one and Flan
nery had another. Here were four two
t baggers. Anothf r chance for Archbald
jto compare pitching records.
SS" In the ninth Inning, there was In-
tense cxoTtoinchPwlien two men got on
-bases and with one out a fly was
knocked tg .Hosier. He enptured It nnd

tho runner Interfered and was called
out. This would have retired the side.
The runner on third started home and
Flannery, recovering himself, threw to
Lofttts, who fairly bogged the runner,
ending the game and blocking the run
that would have tied tho score. How
ever, there wns a bit of unfair ball
playing that would have ended the
game, regardless of whether or not
Loftus caught his man, An Archbald
concher stnrted down the line before
the runner to deceive the Carbondale
players. He bumped against Loftus,
who touched him with the ball and nlso
touched the runner. In the meantime
the man who was disqualified nl sec
ond ran the bases, after Umpire Burko
declared the flrfjt runner out at home,
ending the game, leaving the score 4-3
In Car'bondnle's favor. The Archbald
team was dissatisfied, however, It was
hard to lose, and they went homo claim
ing the score D-4. This was the occa
sion of the outlay of cash for special
cars and n band and the trip to Car
bondale Inst night.
"That's the way we celebrate our
victories (V)" suld a bright-hatred
Archbald man, as the car went through
Carbondale, to the amusement of tho
"Pets," who won. We guess the Arch
bald man is right, at that. The score:

Complaint Made at Select Council by
Property Owners of Terrace Street,
with Reference to Excavating at
Attorney Louis Gramer appeared be
fore select council last night, in behalf
of Terrace street property owners, with
respect to the excavating that Is being
done for the proposed furnace room of
the Methodist church.
The property owners on the easterly
side of the street, judging fiom their
own sidewalk line, are of the opinion
that the excavating ut the church en
crouches on the roadway for ten or
eleven feet, and feel thut It the work
be not stopped that this will be estab
lishing a precedent, and that another,
If he chooses, can chop off ten feet or
so of the roadway, as In this Instance,
There Is no sidewalk vdiere the exca
vating is In progress, and council Is
asked to establish, by ordinance, u side
walk line, to determine whether or not
this is an encroachment, on the road
way, us the property owners claim.
T. C. Robinson spoke for the church,
uud assured council that nothing would
be done that was opposed to the rights
of others. If this be an encroachment,
but the contrary was believed, then the
wprk would be stopped.
The matter was referred to the street

EDITOR OP SPORTS.
Thomas V. Nenlon's Progress on the
Trenton. True American.
It Is always pleasing to take notice
of the progress of a Carbondallan, who
Is away from home hewing out the
path to success, amid strange surround
ings. The news, therefore, of the con
tinued progress of Thomas "V. Nenlon,
on the Trenton (N. J.) Dally True
American, will give renewed pleasure
to his numerous friends and well-wishers
in Carbondale and vicinity.
Mr. Nealon Is now editor of sports on
the paper. This means a good deal
more than one would suppose, as tho
True American has nearly a whole
page devoted dally to all the sports,
base ball, golf, horse racing, yachting,
etc. There Is an Immense amount of
detail work connected with the "get
ting up" of these "stories," all of which
Is under Mr. Nealon's supervision. The
trust that Is reposed in him is not only
a compliment to ljis well-Informed
knowledge on such matters, but Is a
greater compliment to his judgment.
Thomas V. Is at home In dealing with
sports; he Is thoroughly posted on ath
letics and is so familiar with sporting
vernacular that his reports are always
refreshingly breezy and spicy. There
was evidence of this In his work for
Carbondale papers, among them this
department of The Tribune, having
contributed various articles during last
fall and early this spring.
More convincing evidence that Mr.
Nealon has caught on with the Trenton
paper Is the fact that he wns for some
time special assignment man on the
True American; that is, he was given
the big "stories" that are out of the
ordinary routine of everyday news
paper work. Copies of the True Ameri
can received at The Tribune office each
week show that Thomas V. Is crowd
ing the older men of the paper In the
matter of good stories. Numerous ot
his stories are Illustrated from photo
graphs taken by himself.
The newspaper men ot Carbondale
join In the felicitations that are due
their former co-worker and renew their
wishes for his continued success.
Mr. Nealon will spend his vacation in
Carbondule, commencing the first week

After much discussion on this question
It wns decided that the council should
Investigate tho matter. Tho Chestnut

asked to have 11 culveil opened up on
Jlaple street, between tho Delaware and
Hudson ui II road nnd Hill street, to carry

sent to have tho work done as tho stieet
has not been accepted by the borough.
