ON LOCAL FIELD
The Unbeaten Globe Team
Plays Horse with Alleged
Fastest Team in Tucson,
RAGGED BALL PLAYING
BY BOTH CONTESTANTS
But the Home Team Didn't
Have to Play to Beat the
Visitors Score 11 to 2
Collins versus Collins.
Tho Tucson Armstrongs may bo a
cy fast team in "tho olilost city in
tho United States," but it would never
bo arrested for breaking tho speed limit
in Globe, oven if thcro was such a thing
in this city. Tho unbeaten Olobo team
added another gamo to their string of
victories becauso of tho visit of tho
Tueson boys ami incidentally made the
latter look liko a bunch of schoolboys.
It was almost a sliamo to tako tho
money, but something had to bo done
to convince tho Ancient Puebloitos that
Olobo is to bo considered in doping out
the territorial championship.
Tho gamo was a slow ono on both
sides, tho homo team putting up the
worst game, they havo played this sea
son, but there ncvor was any occasion
to play fast ball. Tt was Globo's gamo
from tho start and tho only excitoment
during its progress was when Umpire
Prall got his dates mixed in the sovonth
inning and tho rootors took a fall out
if him. He changed his decision in
favor of tho visitors, as was domanded
by tho grand stand, and tho slaughter
was resumed.
Scoro on Error
Tucson scored ouco in tho first inn
ing when Pinyon dropped Mnrdorf's
throw to the pinto, letting in Rolcti,
and in tho seventh Saner scored nftor
ho had been called out at second and
then called back, tho umpire declaring
tho batter out for hitting an infiold
fly, which Shirk muffed. That was all
the visitors got in tho way of runs.
J. Collins, Tucson's twirlcr, was oasy
at all times for tho locals, and Guy Col
lins, Globo's star slab artist, had tho
visitors at his mercy throughout the
game. In tho eighth fivo hits wore
mado by tho homo teaui, all of them
with ono exception being "Texas
leaguers." Tho exception was, a liner
to right by Green, on which the littlo
left fielder took two extra basos on
Mitchell's fumble.
Great Baso Stealing
Tho one feature of the gamo was the
baso stealing by the Globo piny or,
(cno Shute pilfered three sacks and
Green, Shuto and Quinlcven stole
third. The only reason that homo was
not stolen was probably because tho
local boys woro ashamed to do it.
Cordis went in to catch for tho visit
irs, but after doing the seivo act for
three inning, ho was replaced by Pho
lion, who did some bottcr. Few of the
errors made by Globo were costly and
ill of them woro on easy ehancos.

None of tho witnesses was present in
tho house at the time that tho Jasper
woman is alleged to havo thrown tho

tho story of several witnesses, tho Jas

alleged to havo denied thnt she had
done as charged, which denials have
been continued since sho has been in
jail.
The following. is tho verdict rendered
by tho coroner'aniury:
"We,. tho jurors in the abovo entitled

from boing burned August 10, 1907, in

stood tlmt bail to the extont of $50,000
cash will bo offered for Daniel's free
dom until the next grand jury convenes

obesity. These certificates will prob
ably be produced at tho conclusion of

Tho crime which is charged to Dan
iel is tho killing on tho afternoon of
Juno 27 of James G. Brown, a smoltcr

TOM MCSHANE NOT
Former Globe Miner, Thought
to Be Dead, Turns Up
Alive at Kelvin
It appears that tho report of Tom
McShano's drowning in tho Gila about
two weeks ago, was, liko tho roportcd
death of an American humorist, greatly
exaggerated, according to tho following
from tho Arizona Bladp of last week:
Thomas V. McShanc-, supposed to
havo been drowned nt Cochran last
week, has appeared at Kelvin in tho
flesh and apparently nono tho worso
for his drowning oxperionce. It now
nppears that instead of seeing McShnno
fall out of tho boat and disappear bo
Heath tho surfaco of the wator, as was
roportcd, tho parties simply found tho
boat floating down stream with Mc
Shano's coat in it. Naturally enough.'
thoy concluded McShano had tumbled'
out of tho boat and drowned, as they
could find no traco of him. How he
canio to abandon the boat and lcavo
his coat in it is still a mystery.

A Cleveland dispatch to tho World

John D. Rockefeller's answer to
Prosidont Roosevelt's anti-trust litiga

"Tho policy of tho present adminis

PIERTON HEAD
DIES ON STEAMER
GLOBE DRILLERS
WIN BIG CONTEST
Mclver and Pickins Take Down
First Money in Butte, Mont,,
on Miners Day,
NEAREST CONTESTANTS
OVER TWO INCHES BEHIND
Practically Cinches World's
Championship for the Well
Known Local Hammersmen
Page Brothers Participate
That Globo has the two boat rock
drillers in the country was demonstrat
ed Saturday at Butte, Mont., when
Jack Mclver and his husky partner,
Jim Pickins, defeated all the teams
in tho double handed contost that was
the feature of the annual observation
of Miners' Day in the big Montana
copper camp.
Telegrams were received Lore last
evening from Jack Mclvor, who was
then in Salt Lako City, tolling pf the
victory, but outside of stating that ho
and his partner won by two and one
quarter inches, no additional informa
tion was given. Thcro is some curios
ity here to learn how the Page brothers
came out, as they left hero to tako
part in tho contest. The telegrams
wero received by II. J. Adams, chief
clerk of the Globe Consolidated, and
Harry Leonard of the Kentucky Home
saloon.
The victory at Mclver and Pickins
did not cause much surprise among
local enthusiasts, as they showed their
ability to drill during the matches of
last month, when they decisively de
feated Pago brothers, who hold the
world's championship, which they had
won from Ed Chamberlain and Carl
Mako at El Paso in November, 1905.
They still technically hold that cham
pionship, owing to the fact that no
team has defeated them in Gunnison
granite, which is the standard rock for
drilling contests. But the local drillers
seem to have it over them and the Bis
beo team will probably concede the
superiority to the Globe miners.
Tho first prize at Butte was $1,000
and last year the contest was won by
Walter Bradshaw and Miko McNichols.
Previous to that-Bradshaw and Pickins
divided first money at Douglas on July
1, 190G, with Bill Ross and Jack Mc
lver. Last fall Mclver and Pickins
drilled together for the first time, going
to Phoenix to represent the Globo Con
solidated team. Shortly beforo tho
drilling contest at the fair, Mclver in
jured his hand while practicing, and
was unable to do good hammer work,
so that Page brothers were easy win
ners. Pickins left hcie last spring and
worked several months in tho" Huacliii
cas, returning here in June to practice
with Mclver for tho Fourth of July
contest.
Mclver's bad luck seemed to be with
him again, as a few days before tho
big day ho had a steel splinter driven
into his right hand. If the match had
taken place on tho fourth instead of
the fifth he would have been unable to
drill, but on the fifth his hand was in
such good shape that he and Pickins
easily out-hammered tho Bisbee team,
who were, heavily-played favorites. Two
weeks later they repeated tho dose as
a result of a challenge from the Pages,
the local team making tho deepest hole
ever drilled in tho territory.
Both Mclver and Pickins arc mem
bers of Globe Union No. CO and their
friends 'in the union and out aro prepar
ing to give them a big sendoff when
they return. There will bo another
drilling contest at the territorial fair
to bo held at Phoenix early In Novem
ber and it looks liko easy money for
tho local jack-wielders.
