After sojourning in the "W-l" league,
Verne Hirsch returned to civilisation
yesterday afternoon, and sauntering
onto the mound at the 11 ayes apple
orchard, played the "heavy" in that
little drama entitled, "Four Balls,
Take Your Hiise. ' When the elongated
port side hurler was in these parts
tsome moons ago, he was about the
wildest proposition ever viewed to
mcat bugs. Yesterday he demonstr.
ed that he had lobt none of his old
cunning, lie must have been "hitting"
the raw meat diet, fo- he absolutely
refused to behave. For one hour and
57 minutes the awe-stricken natives
gazed at a line of red-fire flinging of
the most lurid type. Just 11 walks
were handed to the opposition by
Hirsch, and in addition, two wild
pitches added eclat to the occasion.
Dubuque scored five runs in one in-;
nlng on one hit, and coppi d the old j
game 9 to 5, gathering but five swats
to the 15 chalked up by the blue Hose.
Had Jack London been in the stands I
he could have gathered material for
a new book that would make "The Call
of the Wild" resemble, a pink tea so
ciety novel off the pen of Bertha M.
Clay. It was awful, and that s honest.
WIIKHK'H Till: PLATEt
After Dubuque had grabbed all the
runs deemed necessary to win, the
Sox "chose" Lanky Gregg and ham
mered him for five bread winners well
along towards ui. down. In spite
of this belated rally, the fans refused
to enthuse and .he matinee perform
ance assumed the espect of an under
taker's convention. Along towards the
finale, Hirsch threw two straight
strikes, and a member of the fair sex
ceased yawning long enough to 'ap
plaud, interjecting a "bravo" for good
luck. Hirsch had all kinds of "stuff"
on the ball, but the word "control" was
omitted from his lexicon. His ideas as
to the location of the platter were
about as clear and lucid as those or
the average citl en respecting the
whereabouts of the north pole. The
feature of the game came in the eighth
inning, when Shortstop Spicer startled
the congregation and upset all prevail
ing dope by poling a three-sacker to
the right garden. That clout was
worth the price of admission.

drew a walk, and the two paths were
densely populated. Hirsch couldn't
locate the plate with Gregg up, and
heaved four wild ones, forcing a run.
With Jude up, the untamed southpaw
unbottled a wild heave which allowed
another Dub to register. Finally,
Hirsch got the ball within two feet

New York, Sept. 3. Reversing the
decision of Umpire Brennan, President
Thomas J. Lynch of the National
league announced yesterday afternoon
that the game of Aug. 30, between
the New York and Philadelphia clubs
will count as a victory for the Phila
delphia team. Umpire Brennan award
ed the contest to the Giants by a
9 to 0 score, when the Philadelphia
management was unable to clear a
section of the bleachers back of cen
ter field, claiming that the moving
spectators were a handicap to the New
President Lynch in his decision
states that Umpire Brennan exceeded
his authority in declaring the game
forfeited to the New York club anl
formally awards it to the Philadelphia
team by a score of 8 to 6, w hich was
the score by which the Phillies led in
the ninth inning, when the game was
stopped by the umpire. The decision
of the league executive is as follows:
"In all cases where protest is
lodged against the result of a cham
pionship game the umpire's statement
of fact is of most importance, and
whenever an umpire in making a de
cision is supported by the rules of
the game I will back him to the limit.
The official report cf Umpire Brennan
covering the game forfeited to New
York in Philadelphia Aug. 30, shows
that neither tiu'j had complained of
existing conditions regarding the spec
tators, rnd that the umpire plainly
went beyond his authority in declar
ing a forfeiture, for which action he
had neither the protection of the reg
ular playing rules nor of any special
ground rule. The umpire was clearly
at fault in not having the game played
to a finish.
"As Mr. Brennan's ruling is without
precedent, I waive all technical proce
dure in ruling on this protest in order
that a prompt disposition of the affair
may be had and the best Interest of
the game may be served. Acting
solely on Umpire Brennan's statement
I am compe'led to set aside his deci
sion forfeiting the game to New York
by 9 to 0. The game will be counted
in the records for Philadelphia by 8
runs to 6, this being the score when
said game was stopped in the ninth
inning through error of the umpire."
There were 442 paid admission for
that holiday double-header yesterday
the smallest crowd probably that
ever attended a double-header on a
holiday with such weathef in. the
league. Peoria Journal.
JI ST LIKE DRYAX,
Mr. Fountain is in Mr. Bryan's class.
Bill talks an hour and a half and
collects $300. Fountain had two min
utes conversation with Blind Steve
yesterday and it cost him $50. If the
rule of baseball was to pay a fine to
the umpire. Rabbit could give Steve
counterfeit or Mexican coin, for the
umps is so blind, he'd never get wise.
President J. W. Boyle and J. W.
Plaster, who is vice president of the
Danville association, came ovef- to
view the game. They were anxious
to cop both. They stated that Dan

Quincy's attendance last Sunday

age of 643 per game. The minimum
required by the league is 35,000. Last
year Qulncy fell below this mark by
several thousand. Should one or more
players be drafted, the association
would be able to start next season on
a sound financial basis. As matters
now stand, the association will break
about even, as last year there was a
deficit, which had to be cleaned up.
The president and manager of the
Distillers, W. F. Meidroth, was again
conspicuous by his absense yester
day. Instead of resigning his post
tion, as it was rumored he would do,
he quit the town. The Distillers leave

doubt be back tamorrow afternoon.
