"What's the charge against the
prisoner?" asked His Honor Mayor
Keister, seated on the commodious
grandstand at the Allison Hiu base
ball grounds last evening at the close
bf the contest.
"This player, 'Eggie' Fetrow, is
charged with robbery," replied City
Detective Carson, who brought the
player before a court, not unlike the
Roman amphitheater of old. Internal
Revenue Inspector Heefner was
called as a witness and testified that
in the fifth inning. Center Fielder
Fetrow of the Galahad team, had
robbed "Bill" Fortna of at least a
three-bagger in the presence of 2,100
people. Special Officer Shickley, as
well as two regular policemen, who
handled the crowd well, also gave
evidence of the brilliant bit of field
ing done by the Galahad centerfield
er. E. A. Heffelfinger, president of
the East End bank and President W.
M. Hoerner, of the Allison Hill Trust
Company, tesitfied that the same
Fetrow had -earlier in the evening
pleased the fans by driving out a
home run
This gave his Honor a new idea,
and tho Mayor sentenced Fetrow to
duplicate his home run feat every
night that he appears in a Galahad
uniform. Men and women too, from
all walks of life, are called from thpir
vocations nightly, where they forget
the worries of the day seeing good,
wholesome baseball at Seventeen
and Chestnut streets. Bank presi
dents. doctors. lawyers, bakers,
teachers, men from all walks of life
can be seen on the grandstand. Then
there's the meat trust. Among the
most interested and most loyal sup
porters of the league are Messrs.
Charles, Kerr and Zeiders. who pos
sibly are in a better position than
anyone else cn the grounds to tell
when one of the players "makes a
ham." It is they who control the meat
situation on the Hill, but still find
time between cuts, to take in a hot
ball game.
Without changing your seat on the
grandstand, one hfts an unobstructed
view of what's "doing" out at Pax
tang Park. The balloon' ascension
and fireworks, add to the attractions.

i Two home runs, two two-baggers,
and three fast double plays featured
the 7 to 3 victory of the _Galahads
over the Rosewood, bringing the
"Knights" a step nearer to first place.
At present Galahad, in the opinion
of many of the critics, has the best
team that ever represented the club.
They play a consistent contest.
Galahad won the game in the sec
ond inning when Lutz wqs given a
base on balls. Lutz also walked.
Reilly's single sent in Lutz for the
first score. An infield hit and error
and a two bagger brought the total
to four runs. "Black and Fetrow
scored in the fifth when the latter
sent a ball out into deep right field.
"Snaps" Emanuel drove out a slash
ing hit that went to Black's garage
for a circuit of the bases.
The Rosewood aggregation pulled
two fast double plays, while Galahad
was credited with one. Every one was
taking a creak at the ball so that
there were few strikouts. Lots of
action with Galahad always in the
lead "kept the crowd keyed up dur
ing the hour and a quarter of play.

Detroit, Mich. Fred Fletcher.
There is no open season on buffalo

by the Canadian Government from
the United States Government in
1907. A herd of 750 was then pur

Not until the Engineers and Fire
men in the West End Twilight
League had been walloped last eve
j ning. 13-2, by Commonwealth did the
j players realize it was Friday, 13;
; then First Baseman Klugh knew why
I he had nearly sacrificed his life by
cutting into the wire fence aftei a
foul hoist.
Six errors were only some of the
misplays credited to the Engineers,
and Firemen who played the
game like a bunch of eripples on a
holiday, while Commonwealth' slug
gers continued to pole drives with
the ease and precision of a man put
ting coal in your cellar.
Commonwealth went at the task
seriously in the third, when Eisen
berger walked and scored a minute
later on Klugh's three-base hit.
Klugh came trotting home when J.
Smith singled.
In the fifth G. Killinger singled,
but was caught stealing. W. Smith
hit to center for a base and scored
on Field's triple. E. Waltz hit the
ball in front of home plate but Mod
den dropped Bennett's throw and the
runner was safe. On this play Fields
came home. Kohlman was then
walked and on Eisenberger's triple.
E. Waltz and Kohlman scored.
Eberly in the sixth handed out
passes to J. Smith and G. Killinger,
W. Smith hit to second and Killing
er was retired. Singles by Fields
and E. Waltz, coupled with a wild
pitch by Eberly, permitted W. Smith
to cross the plate, both of whom
scored on Kohlman's triple.
The Travelers continued their
marching in the seventh, when Gor
don Ford, who succeeded Eberly in
the box, issued a free piss to Klugh.
E. Killinger and J Smith fanned and
and they were followed by G. Kil
linger, who hit to short Boss fum
bled the ball and the runner was
safe. W. Smith followed with a hit
to the same part of the field, whtch
Boss again fumbled and Klugh
scored. Fields then came through
with another W4ple. scoring G. Kil

"Kid" Williams, Ex-Bantam Champ,
in Mahoney s Comer Monday Night
A letter from Max Waxman, man
ager of Young Mahoney, to Joe Bar
rett yesterday assured the Steelton
promoter that the Baltimore light
weight will be in the steel town to
morrow morning to finish training
for his ten-round bout with Sammy
Schiff, before Barrett's club, Mon
day night at the Quartet Hall, cor
ner Front and Washington streets.
This, alone, has put Barrett in
high spirits, arrd the assured fact
tha.tc Kid Williams, the ex-bantam
champion- of the world, and acknowl
edged to be the greatest man of his
weight of all times, will be on hand
ito look after his fellow townsman
during his fight with Schiff. Dur
■ ing the war Williams volunteered
! his services to Uncle Sam, and had
[ charge of the soldiers at Camp Ogle
j thorpe, for which he refused to ac
i cept but a single dollar for his ser
j vices. The balance he donated to
! the Red Cross.
The decision given against the
Baltimore tiger in his twenty-round
, fight with the present champion, Pete
! Herman, in Herman's home town,
| Xew Orleans, is still spoken of
| throughout the land as a rank in
justice to the little ln
! fact, the writers of the New Or
leans papers present at the ringside
on that memorable night, claimed
that Williams was a dethroned, but
not a defeated champion. The ad
vice Williams can give Mahoney, and
the natural fighting ability of the
little Irishman-, is what the local boy,
Schiff, will have to overcome to up
hold the honors of Harrisburg in
| the battle, and while Schiff is na
j turally a favorite in this city, there
I are many Y)f his friends yho think
lit looks like the local boxer will run
home on G. Ford's hit. Ford took
second when an attempt was made to
get Hoover at the plate, and scored
a minute later on Eberly's hit.

into his first real defeat in this sec

honey say they will not be satisfied
with ar.-ything but the same dose
Mahoney handed to his last three
opponents, Joe Jackson, Terry Ket
chell and Eddie Loeckner, who were
all knocked out in less than four
rounds each.
If Schiff should run foul of Ma
honey's knockout pun-ch, the local
sports would surely be a downfallen
lot, but how would it look and feel
if Nate Isaaeman, another local fa
vorite, should run afoul of Young
(Bull Dog) Silar's punch and take
the count. Stranger things have
happened, and from all accoun-ts
from York, where the 28th Division
lightweight is preparing for the
fray, money is wagered that Isaac
man will not go the limit. Silar
is touted as another Jack Dempsey,
who carries a terrific punch in eith
er hand, and knows nothing of the
word "stop" when ir.- the ring.
Two other local boys are on the
card, Billy Morton, who carries the
punch of a middleweight, will meet
Paul Wagner, while another 28th
Division boxer, Young Wampler, also
of York, will meet Bill Attieks of
this city. Can these four local boys
win out is the talk of the town.
It is remembered that Barrett is
the samp man who brought Williams
to the front, and as the kid is now
a free lance, having discharged his
former manager, it should not sur
prise the sports if the veteran adds
the cx-champ to his string of fighters
he is getting together. Tickets for

JULY Ist coal prices will actually advance 30 cents
per ton.
September Ist prices will again advance another 20 cents
per ton. How much more will he added to the price during the
winter we are not prepared to say.
The railroads require an advance in freight rates in order
to meet the growing deficit and ever-increasing expenses. This
increase in freight rates will probably further advance the price
of coal 25 cents or 30 cents per ton.
Coal shipped in summer is easily worth Si.oo more per ton
than that mined in winter under an avalanche of orders, when
operations must he speeded up to the limit.
We estimate that you really save 5i.75 in the value of the
coal bought in June; 50 cents scheduled advance, 25 cents, pos
sibly, increase in freight rates and SI.OO for additional value in
summer shipments. Figure it out yourself.
Phone in your order at once. The coal
must be delivered before July 1 in order to
get the advantage of the present low prices. ,
