'4, ?f M t--, 4 fc MtdtfMM , The News of -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 omission. ' 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 this later. 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 were costly. 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 -galled It to tjilni io ea'tcl) a runner. The ,ball got away from Murray, but Mc- yAndrow was u'fter It In the crowd upd "-- '. ', i ."

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: CARBONDALE. It. II. P.O. A. K.

Says Whitney, In his latest corre spondence: Thus far, this season, the Susquehan na Stars have won seventeen and lost three games. They played the sloppiest game. In their history at Carbondale. There was little glory In winning such a game. In the Star-Crescent series each club has taken a balloon ascension. Now for one real game of ball! The Stars were treated handsomely In both Honesdale and Carbondale. For this, many thanks. There's a splendid feeling between the Stars and the Crescents, which is more than all else. May this happy condi tion never change. And now let the band play. Courteous and Hospitable, Susquehanna people are lavish In their praise of the courteous and hos pitable treatment received nt the hands of Carbondalians on Sunday, and their greatest wish is to have an opportun ity to reciprocate.

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 committee. Other business were resolutions di recting the sale of the stone crusher to T, B. Howe, of Scrunton; granting per mission to Samuel Smale to make a sewer connection with his Terrace street property, and ordering a profile of Seventh avenue, between Washing ton and Park streets.

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 In September. THE PASSING THRONG. Miss Eula Carey spent yesterday at Crystal lake.
