With Arlett on second base by rea-.
son of his fluke double, Dan Murray
lofted fly to short center. Maisel
came tearing in while Corhan scooted
out to get it. Just as Corhan turned
to take the ball, Maisel bumped ' him
and the ball fell safe. Maisel picked

of the bay in the afternoon to greet
the new champions. It was just an
ordinary game of balls, with the cham
pion showing their class, but there
were no outstanding features. Billy
Lane helped himself to ft- home ran in
the first inning, and that was abso
lutely all Chief Johnson allowed in the
way of runs.
Speed Martin was selected to show up
the new champions, and he, pitched
good bail, but h could not win. A dou

Charley Pick legged in with the third

peppery third sacker trotted home.
The afternoon game was ended when
Hack Miller, drove ft liner . into the
