Testerday's Game With Kock-
The LncnK ,11H1. Without K!Tor:-ToO
Many Ki rorn Hemp e
Yes. gentle reader, there W89 a game
Testerday but not a game of ball, at
teast not aa far as the locals were con
tented, they played horse many different
mes during the game and allowed the
Tisitors to carry it off by a score of 10 to
Once or twice they braced up and
acted like ball players, but it didn't last
Jong and was too short to avail of much.
Collins, the new pitcher, pitched a good
tame and gave general satisfaction. He
as a very deceptive drop, fle'ds his posi-
Jion well, an! to all appearances is just
what the team needed. Both teams did
ome good hitting, but the miserable sup
3ort that the home team gave the new
twirler allowed them to score almost
whenever '.bey pleased. There is some-
ihing decidedly wrong in the playing to
5he locals of late that ought to be speedily
remedied. The management is fully
xware that certain members of the club
ave been dissipating, acd the fact could
jot be concealed from the public, espec
ially that portion that attends the games.
il iii not the disposiiion of The A kg us to
attempt to interfere in the mansgimtrt
of the team, but whtu a large portion of
the bast ball loving public demand a
change, it is time to speak and speak out
loud. The management is beginning to
complain to the public that the attend
ance is dropping off, but this will no
doubt continue until a disposition is
hown to give it what it dt minds. The
iotne club is carrying 12 men on its pay
io while other clubs in the league get
along with 10 It might be a good idea
.o reduce the expense by dispensing with
some men; then if the public does not
support a team run on an economical
basis, it cannot complain. The tri-cities
will undoubtedly support a ball team am!
iupport it well, but in return it expects to
.ee ball and not horse play. If a team is
Jteady and shows a disposition to play
wincing ball, the public is always with
them, but when poor playing from good
players results from lose management,
:he patrons certainly have a right to enter
protest It is to be hoped that those in
charge of the club will see fi it to give the
public what it demands, and if this is
done, there will certainly be no trouble
about patronage. The following is the
score of yesterday's game:

Fielder Roberts is improving and will
probably j in the team again in a few
days. He is one of the best fielders in
Ihe minor leagues.
Evety day that the home management
delays in getting the team in winning
shape is loosing it money and also killing
.ocal interest in the game.
"Ducky" Hemp, late of the Terre
Haute team, and who is now well known
to many here, has been signed by the
managem-nt to play center field. He is
