An OBleer to RealgUi
:i;,At-tb next rmeetljrg pt the city council on
Tuesday .evening Captain Billy Wood, station
boose keeper, will present his resignation as
aucb officer, to take effect immediately after
the appointment or bla successor. If Billy
stays until tbe cily council secures as good a
man for the place, he will hold the postionfor
a long time. His course In the matter
has been carefully considered, and It Is at the
earr.est solicitation of his many friends, who
know his ability and know that he is deserv
ing ol better things, that he gives up a posi
tion which be haa filled with so much credit
to hliLself and to the city. Billy has now
had charge of Ihe station bouse
for almost three years, and without any
reflection upon his predecessors, It is safe to
say, and only just to bim, that tbe station
bouse has never been ke t so well as during
that time. It is one of tbe best kept prisons
lo tbe State, and to Mr. Wood the credit is
due. During bis admliilstratlon there
have been but few escapes, and at tbe
same time the number of prison
ers bos been much laigir than ever
lefore. Billy did not go in as a "green"
h'ind, however. Durlug tbe administrations
of E. G. Coffin and the first term or James
Foley, as Sheriff, he served as dep
uty, and in that position, as well
as In every other which be has filled nothing
can be said against bim. By bis resigna
tion, the constabulary force of this city loses
an efficient member, and be leaves with
the best wishes of all with whom he has been
associated, aa well aa of those of hia many
friends. He has had reveral positions offered
him, but bas not yet deEoently decided as
to bis future course.

A Fine Game Played Yeaterday Afternoon
at Aaaoclntlon Park-Heavy Uniting by
the Aprlngllelue nnd Poor Fielding by

Clnb to Play In Cleveland Today-The
iAtnlevllles Next Thursday-Notes and
Newa of Intereat to Unas llnll Ail.
Tbe third and last game of the series ot
exhibition games b'tween the Springfield and
Dayton clubs was played yesterday afternoon,
at Association Park, and was won by the
Springfield's by the score of 0 to 4. Only
about three hundred people witnessed the
contest, whiih was the best played on the
grounds this seaso". The home club was In
excellent con Iltlon, and the error
column of the appended score will show that
tbebojs are gelling down to good work
On the other hand, It seemed to be Dayton's
"off" day, every pliyer making an error
with the exception ol Stein, it was only by
sheer good luck that he did not make two, as
twice during the game the ball bounded
out of bis haads but was caught
again before touchlug the ground.
Faaiz did some magnificent work behind the
bat, playing the entire game through without
an error or a passed ball. Kelly pitched the
best gamb that he bas pitched this season, be
ing bit for only six base hits with a total of
eight bases. Considering that this was only
his third game this year, this la good work,
and his admirers believe that he will do some
very effective work during the season.
The finest playing was done by
Ardner, who made several magnificent
catches of fly balls, for which he had to run
a considerable distance. In batting Faa'z
took the letd bavinga three baggeranda two
base hit to his credit, and making two runs.
Fisher played a good gams at first, but made
one wild throw to third base which let in the
first run for the visitors. Huey also did some
very fine batting, making two singles and a
two bagger. Masram was hit for twelve base
hits with a total of eighteen bates. This is a
fine showing aud is a good indication that
Springfield has a heavy batting team.
For the visitors, Schwartz led the batting
with two singles. The fielding was very
poor, as will be seen by the error column.
Up to the fourth Inning per'ect play on the
part ol the borne club kept the visitors from
seeing first bsse. The game commenced
with the home club to bat. After two men
were out Baker made a base hit, and never
stopped running until he hail crossed the
borne plate, coming in on a bad error ol Har
per in right field. In the second inning
Huey led off with a base hit, went to second
on a muffed fly by Wilcox, and scored on a
base bit by Fisher, which advanced Sboupe
to third. Fisher stole second and both he
and Shoupe scored on n base hit
by Kelly. Ardner and Pecklnpaugh
went out at first, ending the inning and leav
ing Kelly on third. In the third inning an
other run was scored by Baker, on a muffed
fly by Williams, and a base hit by Arundel.
In tbe fifth inning after two men were out
Faatz scored on a two base hit by himselr,
and another single by Arundel. In the sixth
the borne club were retired in one, two, three
order. In the seventh Peikinpaugh led
off with a three bagger and after two men had
been retired, scored on a single by Huey
Tbe last two runs were made in the ninth, on
a three bagger by Faatz, a two bagger by
Huey, and an error by Crogan.
The visitors scored their first run In the
fourth inning. Crogan led off with a two
bagger, and scored on a wild throw by Fis'.er
to third. They scored again in the
fifth inning on a single by Hughes,
and a muflled thrown ball by Ardner.
In the sixth inning Crogan got to first on a
fumble by Baker, stole second, and scored on
a single by Schwartz The later scored on a
two bagger by Klussman, who was put out
at third base. This ended tbe run getting,
only one man of the visitors being able to
reach first hase in the remaining three In
Ings. The following Is tbe full score:

Although the attendance during the past
week at tbe ball park has been sufficiently
large to pay expenses, still the club is
not receiving the encouragement that it de
serves from the base ball public ot this city.
There is nothing that encourages a club so
much as to see the grounds crowded.
Tho Dayton and Springfield clubs are about
evenly matched, and the rivalry between
the two dining the season will probably be
as great, although not as bitter, as last Bea
sod. The Dayton club is managed by a jier
fect gentleman, who will not Indulge in the
practices of his predecessors.
