Cynthiana played errorless base
ball behind Rorer and Rehkamp in
in the game at Cynthiana, Thurs
day with the Paris Mammoths, shut
ting out their opponents by the
score of 3 to 0. The game was full
of features. Fast fielding by the
Cynthiana outfield robbed Paris of
several chances to score. The bat
teries were: For Paris, Wills and
Dugan; for Cynthiana, Rorer, Reh
kamp, Willis and Mcllvaine. The
game went an hour and fifty min
utes. Gay umpired.
Lexington undoubtedly has the
"hoodoo sign" on Paris. Paris is
the only team in the Blue Grass
League with a respectful batting
average and yet the Parisians are
the only team that has not defeated
Lexington.
Paris took the scoreless end of a
shut-out game in Lexington, Sunday
afternoon, when the Studebakers
"goosegged" them to the tune of 8
to 0. In the first inning Paris used
four pitchers, Lexington taking the
starch out of them in the swatfest
that followed. This makes the fifth
time the Paris aggregation has tried
I to down the Lexington bunch, com
ing to grief each time. The old hoo
dood still seems to be in good work
ing order. Lexington made six runs
in the first inning, and one each in
the second and fifth. The four
Paris twirlers who made offerings to
the Lexington sluggers were Wills,
JMcCord, Miner and Parsons, the lat
ter being a new recruit. The result
of Sunday's game puts the Lexing
ton team a game and a half ahead
jof the Paris team. In Sunday's game
Paris played without an error being
chalked up against them but
couldn't break the hoodoo. The
game lasted an hour and forty
five minutes, and was umpired by
Day, who gave satisfaction all
around. The game was witnessed
by a large crowd of Paris fans.
The Lexington Herald's sporting
writer pays tribute in Sunday's pa
per to two Paris players as follows:
"Nippert, the Miami University
product who is playing left field for
the Mammoths, has played in six
games and has hit safely in each
one. This is the longest hitting I
streak extant in the league just now.
Miner, the Paris southpaw, didn't
look to be a wonder yesterday, and
he may not be. But just now he is
running a neck and neck race with
Monhollen, Lexington's star left
hander, for strikeout honors in the
league. Miner has whiffed 62 men
in 59 innings pitched."
Representatives of the clubs in
the Bluegrass League will meet at
Cynthiana to-morrow night, for the
purpose of taking action on the pro
posed new three games a week
schedule, to take the place of the
present schedule, of two games
weekly. The announcement was
made by President Thos. M. Russell,
of Maysville, while in Lexington. If
the new schedule is adopted Mr.
Russell said, it will probably go into
effect on Sunday, July 9. Under the
proposed schedule the games would
be played on Thursdays, Saturdays
and Sunday. Some of 'the baseball
people got their dates mixed and
went to Cynthiana last Wednesday
night, only to find they were a week
ahead of the real date of the meet
ing. The only difficulty anticipated
is to satisfy the Lexington club,
which has been holding out for all
Sunday games in which the team
participates to be played in Lexing
ton.
In reference to the proposed
change from two to three games a
week, some of the clubs object to
the change on the ground that
Saturday base ball will hurt small
towns in the League. The Lexing
ton team objects to the change, that
is, if they are to be deprived of
their Sunday games at home. From
the past week-day .games, Manager
Jesse Morton states that the contests
on Sunday are the only ones that
are paying, and if the club has to
lose these games at home it would
almost force them to withdraw
from the circuit. However, before
the schedule can be adopted, unan
imous consent of the six clubs must
be had which at present looks very
doubtful.
A team composed of players select
ed from the four clubs of the
Church League, played a team at
North Middletown, Saturday after
noon, winning out by ascore ot 11
to. ' -
RAILROAD SHOPMEN IN "A
WALKOUT"
In obedience to instructions from
the leaders of their union, about one
hundred and eighty railroad shop
men employed in various branches of
the work in the South Paris yards
of the Louisville & Nashville, laid
down their tools and "walked out"
Saturday morning, being a part of
the nation wide protest against the
wage cut instituted by the Railroad
Board at Chicago. The strikers re
fused to couple the air hose on out
going trains, but made no other
demonstration.
The men on strike are orderlv and
no trouble is anticipated here. The
Louisville & Nashville has placed
several guards at important stations
in their local territory, as a matter
of precaution. The men are taking
the situation very philosophically,
and their leaders scoff at any intima
tion of possible trouble. It is their
belief that the rail strike will be
settled satisfactorily within ten
days. Local interest was centered
yesterday in the possibility of a call
from the meeting at Detroit for the
maintenance of way men, trackmen
and others to join the ranks of the
strikers. A conference of strikers
was held Sunday afternoon, at
which the situation was thoroughly
gone into, but no details were given
out for publication.
The strikers are jubilant over the
fact that only five of the different
branches of the service which went
on strike have remained at their
work. Opinions differ as to the ef
fect on the running of trains. Rail
road officials say there has been no
change beyond a delay of a few
minutes in the schedule. The strik
ers, however, claim that the freight
service has been crippled, and that
no freight trains northbound from
Corbin have passed through Paris
since Saturday afternoon. It was re
ported that the five men who refus
ed to walk out Saturday morning
had reconsidered, following an inter
view with a committee of strikers,
and had joined their associates,
making the strike here one hundred
per cent.
A dispatch from Chicago to the af
ternoon papers yesterday stated:
"The six railway shop crafts unions
which went on strike Saturday were
outlawed by the United States Rail
road Labor Board to-day.
"In a formal resolution the board
declared that the unions, by their
action, forfeited all rights before the
board as railway employes and that
new organizations of shopmen tak
ing the striking men's jobs should
be formed to represent the shop em
ployes in disputes before the board."
COMMUNITY SERVICE TO GIVE
"NEIGHBORHOOD NIGHT"
The Community Service has plan
ned several kinds of entertainments
for the summer. One of the most
enjoyable will be observed Friday,
July 7, and will be known as
"Neighborhood Night." The object
of this is for the people of different
sections of the city to get together,
to meet old friends, and to make
new ones, in fact, to have a good
time generally.
Everyone is invited to come out.
Everything is free. In your neigh
borhood you will be hosts to the vis
itors, and it is up to you to see that
there is a crowd waiting to receive
them and to make them welcome.
There will be four stopping plac
es, and the court house will be the
starting point. There will be trucks
to accommodate those who help to
do the entertaining, and there will
be music, singing, and different
kinds of stunts. At each point one
or more of our popular speakers will
make short speeches. All who can
sing, or who wish to try will meet
at the Y. M. C. A. Thursday night
at 7:30 o'clock, for rehearsal. Fa
miliar songs will be chosen, and the
young people are especially urged to
participate.
Remember the meeting place,
court house square, Friday, 6:45 p.
m., and the stopping places, Nine
teenth and Main, 7:00 p. m., Fif
teenth and High, 7:30 p. m., Sev

NEWS OP THE COURTS
In the County Court Saturday
morning Judge George Batterton
heard evidence in the case of Frank
Hanks, of near Millersburg, charged
with selling moonshine liquor, and
Henry Feeback, of near the same
place, who was charged with having
liquor in his possession. Hanks
was fined $200 and given a ' jail
sentence of sixty days. Feeback
waived examination and was held to
the grand jury in the sum of $500.
A few days ago two men, wearing
blue overalls, claiming to be from
Mt. Sterling, came to Millersburg.
After strolling around the city for a
time they asked a man if he knew
where they could get some moon
shine whisky. They were sent to
Feeback, who was then in Millers
burg. Feeback is alleged to have
told the men that he could get them
any quantity desired. The men fur
ther stated that they wanted to buy
a good still. According to the story
Feeback had just what they wanted.
They then bought a half-pint from
Hanks, and one of the men went
with Feeback to inspect the still.
When they arrived at the Feeback
home it was found that his stock
had been previously disposed of, but
a deal, it was alleged, was made for
purchase of the still. When the two
men returned to Millersburg they
were arrested by Marshal Linville.
The two strangers proved to be pro
hibition officers.
