PRESCOTT
EASILY
WINS OPENING
(From Sunday's Daily.)
Prescott
"' 6
........
For sis innings, yesterday, ther
was as classy a baseball game as has
been pulled off here since the mem
orable ten-inning game between the
old Grays and Phoenix, when neither
team had scored up to the ninth
round. It was brilliant ball, yester
day, up to the seventh, when MeCorm
ick, the twirler of the Highlanders,
went to pieces, and he was batted
out of the box. In fact, the battle
started with an armistice, which last
ed four innings, with not a nian on
either side crossing the plate; then
there was a skirmish in the next
two encounters with honors in favor
of the visitors, and finally it ended
in a massacre.
As the game does not count in
the pennant race, neither team put
forward its best twirling material.
Grijalva, who superseded MeCormick.
in the eighth, is Flagstaff's star man
in the box, and be will be stationed
there this afternoon. Smith, for Pres
cott, has not a fat assortment of
curves, but he is a heady player, cool
as an iceberg, and with a big stock
of judgment constantly on tap. He
weakened some towards the finish
and the visitors found him for a
bunch of hits. Sizing up yesterday '.s j
exhibition, it is evident that i lag-

work and fast fielding. Dodge rap

FIVE RUNS IN ONE INNING
AND THE REST IN
PROPORTION
(From Tuesday's Daily)
There was a baseball game here,
Sunday. That's what it was, al
though very few people ever had an
opportunity to witness anything like
it. Flagstaff had the most luck,
and consequently, won the game. It
was exciting, every minute of it
a-ou could never tell who was going
to drop the ball next. Home runs,
two baggers, scratch hits, errors and
overthrows followed each other in
quick succession. Of course, there
was a good deal of parliamentary ar
gument with the gentleman who de
cided what was a ball and what was
not a strike, but that only showed
that the players were interested and
were not willing to take things as
they came if they could help it. It
was not what is commonly referred
to as a pitchers' battle, as the sup
port given both Gill and Grijalva wa
equally poor. Of course, there were
a few near-fatalities. Jess Wilson
suffered a badly injured finger, a
swift throw tearing the nail loose,
and the Flag catcher that poor Flag
catcher suffered more damage than
Madero's army. Here is a partial
list of his injuries: One slam in the
jaw, another of the same sort fonr
inches southeast of the appendix,
severe blow on the right instep,
frightful twist of the right knee cap
and all this in addition to being
unkindly treated, as he thougnt, ny
"His Honor," the "Umps."
Clow, who had been a source of
disappointment to his admirers Satur
day, sent the ball over the left field
fence for a home run, in the first in
ning. Ford did the same for Flag
in the eighth. McClellan knocked out
a pretty single in this inning, which
tied the score, by bringing in two
runs for Prescott.
The sixth was the only inning in
which both sides played real league
ball, only seven men facing both
pitchers.
After the smoke had cleared awav
a bank clerk .armed with a Burroughs
adding machine, went out and fig
ured up the score. His latest revised
report says that Flag got 15 and
Prescott had 10 to her credit: but it
was a good game, just the same.
Everybody had something to say.
There was a big crowd present and
the weather was fine.
This is the way the ball was pun

Sidelights.
Well, one good thing about the
game nobody got killed.
"Everybody worked hard, especially
the chap that had to mark up the
score. Some mathematician, that.
Somebody in the crowd yelled
"Sic 'em, Tige!" but it was unneces
sary. Both teams were rady to
"sic 'em" on the slightest provoca
tion. Allen proved to be a pretty good
substitute. But that did not tend
to make Jess Wilson's finger any
the less painful.
That Flag first baseman was nine
feet tall, when it came to picking
them out of the clouds.
"Ole" gets the credit for the first
home run of the season. Here's to
you. "Ole!"
There seemed to be a lot of peo
ple who wanted to have the honor of
occupying the Flag bench. One of
the Prescott players said it was
cooler over there. Wonder if they
gave him a frost f
Talk about football being a brutal
game! Wasn't it a shame the way
that catcher from Flag suffered?
. Will somebody please turn off tho
jsun when one of our Prescott play
jers wants to catch a high fly? If
j you won't do that, why donate a
j pair of smoked glasses,
j Old "Umps" yelled just as loud
j as that chap with the megaphone.
1 Wonderful what a difference of
opinion can exist over such a small
. thing as a ball or a strike! But
I then, why get excited? You can
the picture is going to look.
How would you like to be an um
pire? Anyone who kept count of the er
rors had a mean disposition.
How high is that left field fence.
Ole! Oh, well, it doesn't make anyj
diiierence. iou can oang inem over
it, just the same.
Grijalva showed good judgment
SUNDAY
when he hit Brown. If he hadn't
hit Brown. Brown would have hit
one of his "drops," and then every
one would have gone the rounds.
Mae saved his reputation when ho
banged that grounder out along tho
f.rst base line.
None of the Eastern leagues have
furnished a game that compares with
the last Prescott-Flagstaff contest.
Not when it comes to the size 01
the score, anyhow.
Why not have a couple of foul
flags, so everybody can tell the bad
ones?
Xo wonder the players were tired.
Look at the way they had to ruu
around!
SUDDEN DEMISE OF
POPULAR SALESMAN
PHOENIX, Ariz., April 25. F. A.
Ford, a traveling clothing salesman,
died in terrible agony this morning,
about 1 o'clock, at his home, located
at Eleventh and Jefferson streets. It
is believed that his death was
brought on by ice cream he ate three
hours before, though his wife, who
was served at the same time and
place, suffered no ill effects.
On their way home from the Col
iseum about 10 o'clock, Mr. and
Mrs. Ford stopped at a local con
fectionery ami ordered ice cream.
About 11 o'clock, after they had re
tired for the night. Ford complained
of terrible pains in his stomach.
Soon thereafter white froth came to
his lips and he vomited a quantity
of the liquid. Mrs. Ford busied her
self placing hot applications over
her husband's body, but he experi
enced no relief.
Soon after midnight Mrs. Ford be
came thoroughly frightened and hur
ried to a neighbor's house to tele
phone for Dr. Roy Thomas. Before
the physician arrived Ford was dead.
Coroner Johnstone was notified,
and this morning a jury was 'em
paneled. The investigation was con
tinned until 2:30 this afternoon.
Ford was about Go years old, and
his" wife is about 30. He was a
man of splendid personal appearance,
apparently hearty and in perfect
health. For many years he has made
his headquarters "in Phoenix, and his
family has lived here while he was
making his trips abont the territory.
He returned only yesterday from
Tucson. Besides his wife he leaves
three children. j
Mrs. Ford says that two or three
months ago her husband suffered a
similar attack after eating ice cream,
but she applied hot cloths to his
stomach and he obtained speedy re
lief. She has no doubt that last
night's attack was also brought on
by ice cream, though she ate the
same preparation and did not even
become ill.
TO BORE FOR ORE
UNDER TOWN OF RAY
PHOENIX, Ariz., April 2C Frank
H. Probert, engineer of the firm of
Weed & Probert, and consulting en
gineer of the Bay Central Copper
company, is now at Ray for the
purpose of supervising development
on the Ray Central property.
Mr. Probert believes that good
ore exists under the Ray townsite
flat, which was prospected by the
Lewissohns, but without satifae
tory results being obtained. Th"e
Lewissohns went to 300 feet in one
place, and while drilling was stop
ped when two of the holes were in
ore, the Lewissohns relinquished the
option.
Mr. Probert 's idea is to go to a
depth of 500 feet. The Keystone
drill has been brought down from
the Calumet property and is now
sinking a hole between the Tribolet
market and Marden's ice cream par
lors. Another hole will be put down
abont 100 feet to the southeast near
the corner of the Ray Central prop
erty, within the Hercules ground. An
other will be sunk near the postof
fice and two or three holes will be
drilled on the west side of Main
street.
Treatment of ore is also a matter
under consideration by the. Ray Cen
tral people. The location and capac
ity of the plant are to be determ
ined upon, and may be done at an
early ' day.
Work is now 'in progress in four
underground drifts and each is in
good ore. In two of the workings
the ore is showing an average of a
little better than 5 per cent, and on
the fourth level the entire breast
runs 7 per cent of chaleocite ore.
There are now sixty men on the
pay roll.

In reviewing the pilgrimage of the

returned yesterday, expressed himself
in terms that reflects the wisdom or

admirers of Prescott residing in that
city was Dr. E. B. Ketcherside, for
