That there is something rotten in Den-
3MTk in connection with the management
3 the Twin City base ball club at pres-
t, no one will now deny. To have a
m go out on a trip with three high
jaJaried pitchers and in the first game to
)e shot out by the weakest pitcher in the
apposing team by the humiliating score
)f M to 0. ought to be sufficient
mise for an investigation, and a rigid
MM at that. From the reports sent out
Pashman was first put in the box, and
"hammered until the Hustlers were tired,
hen Manager Sage conceived the brik
lant idea of substituting Paddy Dale,
" they, of course, took heart again
and went at him with a will, a total of
IS hita being made off ihe two. It is
ropposed that Manager Sage knows his
usiness, but it is certainly difficult to see
a reason for his putting Dale in the box
yoaterday with two good pitchers on the
teach. Jt i9 not the purpose of tnose
v-t connected with the management of
ike team to say what should be done, but
it is a right and privilege of those who
are ttiancially interested and who have
:ie reputation of the city as a basr
kail town at heart to insist that some
move be made that will put the club in
kape to play winning ball, instead of
"ailing for chance games to keep the
'earn in its standing in the percentage
Jt has not been long since the Twin
Cities, then in second place, led all clubs
elow it by over a hundred per cent, but
'feeing five games out of seven with one
'm sent us down the toboggan at such
1 rate that the base ball public cries out
"atop us;" which it is the duty of the
nanagement to do. There is no excuse
Jor the home team putting up the kind of
a)l thai has characterized the past few
Tames. The club with a few exceptions,
i composed of good, consciencious, hard
working ball players, who themselves
ive reputations at stake, and some of
wkotn ate trying to work up to better
agues, and it is an injustice to them as
) as to the public who are paying for
ihe team, to allow mismanagement to kill
f both patronage and local pride. The
'oilowing is the summary of the game:

Every day Manager Sage is getting
further away Irom the top of the list
and if be were deliberately planning to
io it he could not accomplish it more
