Baseball riots seem to be the pre
vailing autumn stye in the Cactus
league. Sunday afternoon another mob
that beat him in i scene from Julius Caesar was nulled
off at the Bisbee ball park, with um
pire Toman, the same who appeared
as leading man in the mob scene here
when Douglas was playing a return
engagement, was the leading man. It
was in that ever loving ninth again

man was Heinie Maag,
who took his nerve with him and at
tempted to steal home on Ables's wind
up. . Toman's decision at the plate was
adverse to the home team and the side
was retired in defeat.
. This was the cue. The field- was in
stantly filled with fans and the air
with profanity, which was mostly di
rected toward the umpire. Sheriff
Jack "White rescued Toman from the
crowd and toted him off in an auto.
One overenthusiastlc fanlet got his face
slapped by one of the sheriff's deputies
for overacting the part and the ensu

As a sideshow attraction, captain
Graham, of the Maroons, is said by the
Bisbee papers to have impeached lit

result that ithe duck resented it with
all the heat' of his southern (Indiana)
blood after he had been ordered to
the bench and to turn in his uniform.
Marshall, the big .pitcher for the
Maroons, is also reported to be off the
reservation and to have packed his
ditty bag for Los Angeles. '
Bisbee will appear in El Paso for
a Friday, Saturday and Sunday series,
all of which will count in the schedule,
according to the local directors. '
