Bisbee, Ariz., May 4. Since the Sun
day game Eisbee is satisfied and so is
everybodj' else on the circuit. An even
break was looked for all around, al
though some predicted that Cananea
would take two garner from Harbuck's
Huskies. From all accounts, however,
the Pass Town bunch gave Cananea
something of a showing up in that
opening game Saturday and Gray
proved himself some tv.irler.
Hand it to O'Donovan, however, for
landing a valuable man in pitcher Ell)
Gates. He didn't seem to be exerting
himself in the least on Sunday, and
made the statement after the Sunday
game that he didn't know he'd gone
throuerh nine inniners. However. thres
hopes yet, for the best of them get it
handed over once in awhile.
The big feature of Sunday's game is
being argued. It is whether Redford's
hit down the first base line in the
eighth inning was fair or foul. Home
fans- are equally divided. Those who
stood along the first base line say It
was foul, while those in the third base
bleachers say it was fair, and cut the
fh-st sack before rolling foul. Iouglass
official scorer says he saw It cut first
and claims Redford was cheated out of
a home run. The Bisbee scorer did
not see the ball until it was a few feet
back of 'first. Then it -vas two feet
Bisbee's lineup is now complete for
the season. Van on first, Graham at
second and McCarthy at short are cer
tainties. At third there are two good
men to fight It out, Homer Plake and
Louis Lamar. At present it's a toss

Douglas, however, has raised an aw
ful howl; accused Goyheneix of being
crooked and wants him fired from the
league. Jack, however, isn't worrying
over the job and the Douglas bunch
has probably recovered from its wrath
by this time. Cananea thinks he's the
whole show and he looks good enough
to Bisbee to stick around a spell.
"I'm not infallible," said Goyheneix
after the game. "TVe all make mis-

Pitcher Ben Fehrman, released over
two weeks ago from the Maroons by
manager Dal, has gone to Cananea.
He was sent for by Walling and asked
to report immediately. If Fehrman
shows up like his friends here think
he can, he's secured a berth with the
across the border team for the season.
His release by the local management
caused much dissatisfaction, fans claim
ing he wasn't given the proper oppor
tunity. They're all pulling for him to
stick with Cananea.
Louis Lamar, late of El Paso, showed
up well in Sunday's game, his first ap
pearance in the home lot. His four
assists to first were on hard chances.
Tho wind was responsible for one of his
two errors. While he didn't get a hit
he got on twice, being hit by the
pitcher and drawing a base on balls. He
scored on the latter when Doan hit for

Clarence Marshall, the elongated
twirler, late of the Three I league, had
a fine chance to test his running quali
ties about 4 o'clock Monday morning
and certainly made good use of them.
Justice Murphy, secretary of the ball
club, was to marry a Slavonian couple,
according to their desire, at daylight.
Thej' lived out in the Sulphur Springs
valley about 25 miles from Bisbee. He
asked Marshall to take' the drive 'with

His greatest difficulty on theyflight

"The field was only 120 yards long
