THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE- MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1902.

A SORRY LOT OP

sure of 6,000 Persons by Retiring
, from Duffy's Field Because of Um
pire's Decision The Scoro Was 7-2
in the Sixth Inning In the Cres
cent's Favor A Disgusting Exhi
bition of Scrantonians.
The Scrnnton Amateurs (?). who
vomprlsed over half of the Feml-pro-fesslonal
tcnin of the Electric City,
came to Cnrbondnle with fairly good
opinions as genuine sports preceding
them. Those same Scrnnton Amnteut-Heml-Professlonals
left the home of
"Our Pets" Inst night with the repu
tation of being a sorry lot of iiultters;
quitter.", mind you, that you spell with
Five thousand rooters, Including the
Scrnnton rooters who live In Archbnld,
"left the Hold dlgusted with the ex
hibition that the scooped-together
eiowd of Scrnnton ball tossers and
klokeis Bavo In overflowing measure,
and sore and sorry of the fact thnt
tlii're weio In existence such a bunch of
q-u-l-t-t-t-t-e-r-s within sixteen miles
of the Anthracite City, it wna an px
hlhitlon that the cranks here arc not
fucustomed to. Their own team never
played quitters; quilling is foielgu to
their nature: there Isn't a particle of
It In any of the Crescents' playeis
make-up. and It was enough to make
ono Ri-Ieve In .see the sport of base ball
toyed with In such a Inofo, reckless,
unfair and uncalled for manner. Noth
ing like the circumstances of yester
day would ever Justify the withdrawal
of a Iomm from a diamond; nnd any
team th.it ran away like the Scranton
bunch did yesterday h.ts no business
coming to Carbondale. It has no busi
ness being In base ball. The gold brick
business, selling green goods, miming
o loaded sweat board at a county fair,
or any Illni-flam or short change game
would be Just the caper for such a
crowd. At tills, they would he Johnny-on-thc-spot,
and would give them a
cinch on the sunny side of easy street,
where awnings a foot thick would bo
Tho hundreds of persons who paid
to see the game were entitled to hav
iug the Roods delivered to them, in
stead of being held up and fleeced,
from a sportsman's standpoint, as they
were by these Amateurs, these ama
teurs from Scranton; these plungers to
fair play and square dealing.
The Amateurs Amateurs from Scran
ton can plead what specious excuses
they will, hut nothing that they may
say of this game will Justify the bunco
game that they practised on the several
thousand persons who came to see the
contest, but were fleeced of their rights
by the hard-loosers and quitters from
Seranton-wny. Kvery Carbondallan,
when he went home to his supper, had
a bad taste In hN mouth, which Is apt
to return every time lie thinks of the
exhibition of the Scranton ciowd.
Twice this year the Crescents had am
pler reason than the Scranton team
supposed it had to. leave the Held; but
did they'.' .o, never, while thcv'ro
"Our Pets." That's what makes C'ar
bondnlians feel so proud of their team;
they are true sports to the last drop
of sporting blood In their veins. They
feel what they owe themselves and the
crowds before whom they play, and no
matter how they would smart under
adverse umpiring, they would never
desert the Held. Anybody who was at
Ilonodulo and at Lake Lodoie on Au
gust "7, Will confirm what Is hero said,
that the Crescents aic no quitters, it's
dollais In burnt matches that the.
"Pets" would no longer be such to
Carbondr.Ilnns If they committed such
nn offense as did the Scranton team.
Anything but a quitter In any sport!
,.Away with him! Hack, back, Scrnn
ton,, to your three-feet stalls, which,
even at, such a small measure. Is too
big for the nanow splilts you showed
, In this farce and fake you Inflicted on
Before we go any further, It might
be well to say that the game was given
Jo the Crescent by Umpire Hurke, by
"the uuul score of forfeited games
8-0. The actual score, when the Ama
teur.' the Amateurs from Scranton
did their quitting stunt, was 7-2 In the
"Pets" favor, In the last of the sixth
lulling. It threatened to be 11-2 In our
favor, and this explains why the Klec
trlct city deserted their places and In
quired for the (list lunch counter. The
bad taste was evidently In their, own
mouths, and they sought to remove It
with some pleasant flavor.
, The kick was over a batted ball thnt
Ilairlfon, of Scranton, who pitched for
us, sent down with express speed to
v Crnno hi left field. He was the llrst
muu at bat for Carbondale, but the
heavy slugger of the Crescent) were
to follow, and 'twould never, never do
to kcp a half dozen inoie runs idled up
and the game thus lost beyond nil hope.

Wouldn't It make your friend mad to
tell, her shu wuh la reality a drunkard,
.but.umny women are drunkards uneon-
i-sulously from the usu of coffee, which
Avrecks their nervous systems, and they

A lady In Philadelphia, Pa was very
.badly uffected by coffee, causing her to
have nervous prostration, and she flnal-
"ly woke up to tho fact that she was in
reality a corfee drunkard. Her doctor
, had told her thut she must give up cof
fee, but she seemed unable to do It.

in at all and soon found I felt much
better-.i' Continued use stopped my
"headache and blllouBness, and I soon
noticed that my nervousness had evl-

A kick, therefore, on any old thing,
and then a retrent from the field If
the kick be not sustained, would be
Infinitely better than Btlcklng It out
for a falrly-admlnlstered walloping.
This la the way Captain Franz, of the
Scranton crowd, and some of his men
thought, and they, proceeded to put the
Idea Into action.
Harrison made his way to third base,
when the ball was thrown by Crane
from the crowd In left field. Fran?,
fell on Harrison, In the Judgment of
those close by, had tho base, though
It was mighty close. Umpire Hurke
allowed Harrison the base because of
the ball being blocked. He didn't
says anything as to whether or not
Harrison wns touched out; he simply
noted on the blocked boll proposition.
Then there was a Scranton howl,
headed by Catcher Jlmmle Kaup, who
If a basket of peaches nt kicking nnd
grumbling. Mojiager Ruune Joined 'In
the kick, advising Captain Franz to
give up If the decision be not recalled.
Huike would not recant, as he had no
authority. Harrison had clearly made
second base on Crane's failure to
gather In the hit, and on the blocked
ball, therefore, he was entitled to an
other base, nnmely third, which he
held. Uut when this was explained,
Manager Ituane began to kick about
McTIerney having spiked Pitcher Heed,
which JIcTlerney explains by declaring
Reed put his feet out, ns If to trip
him. The growling and grumbling of
Kane. Franz, et nl., continued, agree
ing however to go on If Umpire Burke
be put out of the game. This woifld
have been notoriously unfair to Burke,
under the circumstances, and the Car
bondale team would not stand for this
stigma resting on him. Accoidlngly,
the game ended by the decision being
In favor of Carbondale. Thus ended
one of the poorest exhibitions ever wit
nessed on a Carbondale ball field.
The Crescents outplayed the Scran
ton men at every stage of the game,
and that's why the game broke up.
Only two hits were gotten off Harri
son In six Innings. We got eight. Hos
ier had one, McTIerney one a two-
bagger: Cuff, two, one two-bagger;
Flannelly and Kmmett one ench, and
Harrison two, the second n three-bag-gpr.
Only one man made errors on the
Carbondale team. McTIerney had two,
though not costly. We got eight hits,
