THE STEIKE SITUATION
There is no danger of the "big
four" railroad transportation broth

thetic strike, even should negotia

crafts "workers fail.
This was the declaration made by
Warren S. Stone, president of the
hrotherhood of locomotive engineers,
and D. B. Robertson, president of
the brotherhood of locomative fire
men and engineers, on their return
to their homes in Cleveland, Ohio,
from New York and Washington,
where for ten days they have at
tempted to mediate the shopmen's
Neither would comment on the
progress of the negotiations. "I
can't make any comment on the pro
gress of the negotiations," Mr. Stone
said. "Too much has been said al
ready." "We were acting as mediators
and mediators only prejudice their
usefulness by talking," Mr. Robert
son said. "I would rather not bs

Asked what position the brother
hood will be in if the negotiations
fail, Mr. Stone said they "will be in
the same position they were in be
fore. The strike 'will simply go on."
Mr. Stone also refused to com
ment on President Harding's ad
dress placing the strike situation
before Congress, which he said Pres
ident Harding had discussed with
the brotherhood chiefs.
PROTEST HIGH STREET BEING
Residents of High street are mak
ing a vigorous protest againts the
street being used a speedway for
aspiring motorists and reckless
speedsters. A Paris business man
who resides on South High street
called THE NEWS yesterday after
noon and asked to call attention of
the authorities of the city to the
utter disregard of life and limb and
the anti-speed ordinances, shown by
these drivers, especially on Sunday
afternoon and night. He stated that
at times it was almost impossible to
Set across the street, except at the
risk of being run over by the speed
demons. Cutouts wide open, light
less headlights, machines left stand
ing with engine running, in fact, al
most every conceivable kind of vio
" lation of the speed laws that are es
pecially prohibited by ordinance,
were noted by him, forming the ba
sis for his complaint.

There were three shutout games
in the Blue Grass League Thursday,
batting averages being devasted ev
erywhere except in the Maysville
lineup. But strange as it may seem,
each of these games was played in
two hours and ten minutes. There
isn't much speed, especially for
pitchers' battles. In the three
games only seven runs were scored.
It took eleven innings of heart
breaking baseball for the Mammoths
to down their jinx opponents, the
Lexington Studebakers, at League
Park Saturday. The game seesawed
back and forth, gooseggs being plen
tiful, Paris finally putting across a
winning run in the eleventh inning.
The score was tied ' several times,
then somebody would pull off some
play that relieved the tension. The
sum and substance of the story is
that Paris won the game by a score
of 6 to 5. For the first five innings
it seemed to the spectators that the
Paris team was doing all they could
to give the game to their opponents,
or the old Lexington hoodoo was
still working. But by hard hitting
and fast fielding after they had be
come thoroughly awake, Paris over
came the Studies and landed a vie-'
tory. Brockman hurt his finger so
badly in the ninth inning that he
was forced to retire from the game,
Hurst taking his place behind the
bat. Parsons, who took the mound
after he had gone in to run for
Blakefield in the ninth, pitched win
ning ball, and gets credit for the
game. Cicona's running catch in
the fourth inning robbed Charlie
Ellis of a ' three-bagger. Parsons
did not allow a hit in the two in
nings he pitched. The batteries
were: For Paris Parsons, Blake
field, Brockman and Hurst; for Lex
ington Walton and Monk. Time of
game, two hours and forty minutes.
Lexington came right back at
Paris in the game played at League
Park, Sunday afternoon, and, in the
presence of what was undoubtedly
the largest crowd of the season, de
feated the victors of the day before
by the score of 8 to 4. Paris used
all their pitchers in an effort to
down the Studies, but the odds were
against them. The game was a bat
ting rampage, with Lexington ham
mering the ball to all parts of the
lot, and Paris chasing. Dean,
twirling for Lexington, held Paris
safe. Bush Meadows, Lexington
outfielder, hit the ball for a homer
over the center field fence in the
seventh inning, and some cynical ob
server asserted that it was passing
Cynthiana when last heard from.
The drive brought in Monahan and
Ellis, who had singled ahead of him.
This same homer sent Parsons to
the bench, Blakefield and Hurst fin
ished the game. The absence of
Brockman, whose finger was hurt in
a previous game, caused a considera
ble change in the Paris line-up.
Hurst has played every position on
the Paris infield, plus pitcher and
catcher. Nippert covered himself
with glory by pulling down a long
hit by Ellis that seemed good for
three bases, taking the ball almost
off the top of the fence. The batter
ies were: For Paris, Wills, Parsons,
Blakefield, Hurst and Macke. Time
of game, two hours and twenty-five
minutes. Eilers umpired.
Rush Meadows, who performed
so spectacularly for the Lexington
team in Sunday's game, will be in
the right field garden for the Paris
team in the game with Lexington at
League Park, Thurjjday. Valentine,
the best in the 'business, will be on
the twirling mound, which is ample
guarantee of increased gate receipts
and a big attendance. Billy Kuhl
man, old Blue Grass League star,
will play third base in this game.
Kuhlman will be remembered as one
of the best third sackers who ever
held a mitt in the old Blue Grass

PRAISE FOR OUR "GOODIE"
The sporting writer on the Cyn
thiana Democrat compliments TJm
nire B. F. Goodman, of Paris, in a
recent article, in .The Democrat, as
"What is a mystery to Cynthiana
fans is why Umpire Goodman is not
assigned to more games in which
our team plays? Goodman is with
out doubt the best umpire in the
league and always gives each team
what is coming to it. But instead
of Goodman, Cynthiana has to put
up with Bob Spade at home and
such as Webb on the road. Spade is
a good umpire when the moon and
other signs are right, but they
haven't been right for Bob' for some
time. Webb is no umpire at all.
It is said that Business Manager
Jess Morton, of the Lexington club,
refused to allow Webb to umpire in
a game in that city recently and
that he had Goodman sent there.
Goodman had been assigned to the
Winchester-Cynthiana gme and by
Morton's request the change was
made. Cynthiana should try to have
that stunt pulled on Spade and
Webb". Goodman was at the park
and umpired bases. Spade balls and
strikes and Bob was unsually bad
in his decisions."

STOLEN CAR, POUND NEAR PARIS
An Essex machine, belonging to
the Tiptop Taxicab Co,, of Lexing
ton, stolen Sunday morning, was
found Sunday afternoon abandoned
on 'the side of the Lexington pike, at
a point about three miles from
Paris. The machine was found by a
garage mechanic who had been sent
out from Lexington on a still hunt
for it. On the seat was
found a revolver belonging to Robt.
Stewart, driver, from whom the car
was stolen, with a card attached
bearing the message: "Be careful
and do not drop this or you may
hurt yourself. I thank you. Boots."
Stewart stated that he had two
passengers Sunday morning shortly
after midnight, and he had taken
one to an address on East Third
street, in Lexington, and while at a
point on the Russell Cave pike, near
Lexington, the other man had held
him up at the point of a revolver,
taking the machine and $2.00 in
cash. Stewart came back to Lex
ington and notified the police. The
Paris and Bourbon county authori
ties were notified, and instituted a
search for the stolen car. The ma
chine was found to be in good shape,
except that it had run out of gaso
line. GENUINE ORIENTAL TREASURES
