First Games of the State Ball
League at Helena, Butte and
Great Falls and the Home Team
Play at the Athletio
A Return Game to Be Played To-morrow
-Sehedule of the Games 1Ending
Sept. 25.
At Helena, Butte and Bozeman to-day
the umpires will say "dplay ball" and the
season of 1892 of the Montana league will
be opened for a series of sixty-one games,
which are to ehd on Sept. 25 nest. The
promise is bright for a nucesesful season
and of course Helena is out for the $50 silk
pennant of the national colors. The open
ing game in this city will be played this
afternoon between Helena and Great Falls.
Miseoula will play at Butte and Philips
burg at Boseman. The Helena game will
be called at 8:80p. m. at Athletic park. The
grounds have been rolled and are in good
shape. Both electric lines have made ar
rangements to put on extra oars and make
quick trips to the park and bask. Under
the regulations of the league the price of
admission is 50 cents. If the game should
be stopped by rain before the end of the
fifth inning the home club will issue rain
checks good for any succeeding game.
Helena and Great Falls will play their seo
ond game to-morrow. The visiting team
is entitled to receive $75 guaranty from the
home team for each game or 50 per cent of
the gate reeipts. Manager Dallas has the
home team in good form.
The batting order of the home team is as
follews for to-day: Earley 8b, Forbes s.s,
Crotty 2b, Twnesham o, Smith a.f, Griffin
Ib, Stingley r.f, Waggoner l.f, Freeman p,
Mullen bench. Freeman, the corkscrew
twirler, arrived in Helena yesterday from
the Bound. Freeman was in the box one
season for the St. Louis Browns. Mana
ger Dallas calls his center fielder a star.
Smith was in the Washington state league
last season. Twineham was with the Den
ver team last season where he made a good
record. Griffin is well known in Helena,
Butte and Missoula. He was with the
Maryeville team when they held the cham
rienebip of Montana. Waggoner is a fa
miliar name to Helena cranks. While
away from Montana he was in the Califor
nia league. Early was with the Butte Else
trioes last season. Stingley is a local man
who can play good ball. Any one who ever
sow the Helena Maroons when they held
the state championship will remember
Crotty and his fog horn voice which he
need with such good effect on the coach
line. Forbes has a good record and shows
p well in practice. Mullen played last
teason in Oregon.
The visitors were placed yesterday as fol
lows; J. W. Buchan 8b, Robert Emerke p,
Thomas Menefee e, J. W. Conly Ib, W.
Madison a.s, Fred Hemmingway 2b, Arthui
Stevens r.f, Frank Miles c.f,. Lee Tutt If.
Murch and Miles are change pitchers and
Stevens change eatcher. Some abanges in
the above order may be made to-day.
The Great Falls league is thoroughly or
ganized and it is confidently predicted by
the base ball enthusiasts of that city that
the Gleat Falls aggregation of ball tosser.
will take the league pennant to the Cata
ract city next fall. There is undoubtedly
some good material in the club and if the
other clubs in the 'state league expect to
have a picnic with the club from Great
Falls they are very likely to meet with a
big surprise. To be sure the men have not
yet had the advantage of practicing to
gether but all are in good trim and capable
of doing good work individually. The 'fol
lowing brief sketches of these men is fur
nished by Manager W. G. Friend, to whom
great credit is due for the thor
ough organization which has been effected:
Robert Emerke, pitcher, played in '90 with
Des Moines and Spokane Falls. Thomas
Menefee, catoher, played with the North
west league in '90 and in '91 was with Ta
coma, but finished the season with the
Erie, Pa., team, making a good record as
catcher, batter and base runner. J. W.
Buchan, third base, was also with the
Northwest league. F. W. March, pitcher,
is a good batter, a speedy pitcher and a
speedy base runner. He played with the
Tacomas last year, and with practice
should develop into one of the best players
of the Montana league. W. A. Madison,
abort stoPr is a local player of great prom
ise. He played on good eastern teams a few
years ago. Fred Hemmingway. second base,
is also a good ball player and is well known
in Helena and Butte, where he played with
the local clubs during the past four years.
J. W. Conly, first base, played last season
with Bates City and is a ball player of good
promise. Arthur Stevens, catcher, is a
local player, an excellent catcher and a
sure fielder. Frank Miles, center field, is
also a local player of note;, ad a first-class
fielder. Lee Tutt, left field, needs no intro
duetion to the base ball cranks of Helena
and Butte, where he has often won the ap
plause of the spaetato: by his clever bat
ting and daring base running.
Missoula commencee the season with an
amateur team. As far as their records go
the members will have the honor of begin
ning their careers in any kind of a league
with the Montana league. On account of
inability to procure players on whom Mis
soula had counted for the opening game
the team is slightly handioapied but they
hope to be in line within a short time. 'lhe
offlcers are: Frank S. Higgins, president;
Col. S. G. Ramsey, vice-president and man
ager. C. W. Blair, secretary and treasurer;
J. Morin, captain. The members
of the team are, James Border,
c., Hugh Camubell, p. and infielder, Ike
Harpster, c,. and outfielder, Jack Harkness,
outfielder, John Morin, 2b, James Mc
Keevez. as., George MoVeigh, c. and 3b,
Walter McKee, lb, Paul O'Brien, p., Rich
ard Sniith, outfielder.
The make-up of the Butte team is: Wil
son, catcher; first professional engagement
was in 1890 with the Creston, Iowa, club.
In 1891 he played the first part of the sea
son with the Kansas Citys, from there he
went to Salt Lake City. hay Harkness,
pitcher; was with the Minneapolis team in
1890, and Evansville, Ind., in 1891. Larry
Gleason is a Butte boy and well known in
Helena. He willplay first base. Flannery,
second base, In 1890 played second base for
the famous Picketts, of St. Paul, and in
1891 with Hastings, Minn. Jud Smith,
third base, in 1889 covered third base for
the Aberdeen, S. D., team. In 18'90 he was
with Portland, Ore., Pacific Northwest
league, and in 189)1 with the Champion, La
Grande, team in the Oregon and Washing
ton Interstate league. J. E. McCormick,
short stop, played in the Eastern league,
Illinois Interstate league, Pacific league
and Dakota league. He will manage and
captain the team. For fielders Butte has
Burns, Sloan, Evans, Hall and Marr, all
local players. They have not been placed
yet. loan and Burns will also act as
change battery.
Philipsburg will doubtless have the
cheapest team, as far as salaries are con
aerned, of any in the state, as the total
amount paid in salaries comes considerably
undor the $200 per month limit allowed
each club hb the state league. Among the
repoats in airculation throughout the state
is one that Phillpsburg is paying her play
ers to the extent of $700 per month, which
is pronounced wholly untrue by the press of
that town. In the first nlace,the Philadelphia
organelztion intend to keep strictly within
the bounds of the laws laid down by the
state league, and in the second, Philips.
burg or any other town of its size could not

Mines Flooded and Many Lives Lost by the
PESTH, May 13.-An immense waterspout
burst to-day in the neighborhood of the
collieries situated at Fuenfkirohen, in
county Baranya. A huge volume of water
innondated the surrounding country and
poured into the mines, causing terible loss
of life. Water poured into the mines so
quickly that the unfortunate men received
no warning of danger. Water rose rapidly
and in a short time every avenue of escape
was shut off, and the men perished miser
ably. It is known there are twenty-two
men dead in one pit, and many others lost
their lives at different points. The men
who lost their lives were working in the
lowerlevels. Those in the upper levels es
caped, and they, with the assistance of
thole who flocked to the mouths of the
pits, went to the resene of the men in the
flooded levels. As news of the catastrophe
spread, immense crowds hastened to the
:cene and the entrance to each pit was
soon surrounded by a surging and wildly
excited mass of men women and children.
the lamentations of those who had rela
tives or friends in the mines were heart
rending, and many pitiful scenes were wit
nessed. Some bodies have already been
recovered, and the work of rescue is being
steadily carried on.

Large Amonnt or Business Transacted at a
Special Meeting.
A special meeting of the city council war
held last night to take steps to acquire the
strip of ground necessary to give Warren
street near Lawrence the uniform width.
Alderman Fuller, from the speeial commit
tee, reported in favor of giving Mrs. EIfi:
R. Foote $870 in city warrants for a strip
fifteen feet wide and 150f feet long, on the
west side of Warren street. The amount is
the same as paid by the Foote property as
assessment for opening Lawrence street.
The report was adopted and an ordinance
appropriating the amount was passed.
The Helena Consolidated Watercompany
presented a petition, which was referred,
setting forth that the service pipes supply
ing Main street with water from the main
are of iron and have been in use a great
many years, consequently have lived their
lifetime and are now badly rusted and de
fective and have been giving out, breaking
and leaking for some time pest; that this
breakage and leakage will continue because
of the unsafe and defective condition of
these service pipes and will necessitate a
teoring up and excavating of the streets to
repair the pipes unless remedied. The
company say that to pave Main street and
cover up the service pipes in their present
condition would result in great annoyanoe
and inconvenience to the people, and great
expense to the owners of property. To pre.
rent this inconvenience, annoyance and ex
pense the company say it will be necessarJ
for oroperty owners to replace the iron ser.
vice pipes with galvanized or lead pipes,
which would not require one-tenth the ex
pense that would be entailed in repairing
the old ones. The counoil is asked to no
tify the property owners on Main street to
replace the iron pipes with galvanized or
lead pipes.
Alderman Wieber offered the following,
which was unanimously adopted:
Whereas, The present and increasing im
portance of that pbrtion of the city of
Helena, designated as the Sixth ward, does
warrant for its inhabitants a greater meas
ore of consideration at the hands of the
city council, and
Whereas, the least that citizens and tax
payers resident in this locality may be en
titled to expect from the city government
in return for their contribution towards
sharing the burden of taxation is proper
and adequate protection for their lives and
their property; therefore,
Resolved; That it is the sense of this
council that the present fire department, as
existing in the Sixth ward is entirely in
competent for the absolutely necessary re
quirements of this portion of the city, and
that one of the first steps necessary in the
direction of the improvement sought, is the
enlargement of the present hose house.
L cemsuiei uiug somrmioree,
together with the committee on fire depart
ment and the inspector of buildings, be
and is hereby instructed to prepare plans
and specifications covering such improve
ments to the Sixth ward hose house as was
suggested in the report of the fire depart
ment committee April 26, 1892, together
with an estimate of the cost, and report to
this council at its next meeting.
E. W. Fiske, contractor for the audi
torium, stated to the council that the
school board had requested him to get the
building ready in time for the commence
ment exercises on May 26. He was happy
to say it would be ready. He himself would
ask permission to have a promenade dance
in the building on the 27th. Alderman
Jackson said the Elite orchestra had al
readv gotten permission to ppen the build
ing with concerts, the proceeds of which
would go to buy a piano for the auditorium.
They had calculated on the curiosity of the
people to see the place bringing a large
crowd. If some other affair were hold first
the curiosity would be gone. Contractor
Fiske pledged himself not to carry away
any of the curiosity and the permission
was granted.
A resolution offered by Alderman Roeec
was adopted, requesting property owne a on
Sixth and Seventh avenues and Warren
street to put their sidewalks in proper con
dition leading to the auditorium. City Eu
gineer Keerl suggested some changes in the
graae of Warren street near the auditorium,
but the council decided to allow it to re
main as it is.
Alderman Fuller called attention to the
fact that it is customary to have an exam
ination of the city treasurer's books each
ear. Mayor Curtin said he had thought of
the same thing, and an examination will
very likely be ordered.
On recommendation of the sewerage con
mittee the council decided to extend the
time of A. T. Newberry from June 1 to Nov.
1 for payment of rent on the sewer farm.
The bonds of City Treasurer Walker and
Pelice Judge (*age were approved and filed,
All bills against the city were, on moration
of Alderman Reese, ordered piesented by
the third day of each month.
United States Deputy Marshals Waitlag
for the Now Men.
There arrived in Helena last night at
10:20 from the west a car containing thirty
rough appearing men. This car was at
tached to the regular east-bound express
on the Northern Pacifis, but was dropped
off and side tracked here. 'I he men took
breakfast at a hotel near the depot, but kept
to themselves during the day and were very
reticent. Late in the afternoon one of the
party said the men were all deputy United
States Marshals from Boise, Idaho, who
had been sent here to meet a car contain
ing a number of men who had been enm
ployed in the east to work in the C(urr
d'Alene mines. He said in addition that
they had on the car two eases of rifles and
two eases of ammunition, in case of nred.
The men from the east were expected in
Helena some time last night.
