Indicting the entire fan army on a
charge of a low order of sportsman
ship because of the rowdy tactics of
a few at the close of yesterday's
game between the Giants, and Cubs
is manifestly unfair. The vast ma
jority of the 23,000 spectators were
there to see a baseball game, and
when it was over they were ready to
go home.
But there were a few vandals pres

in the crowd were endangered by the
flying pads.
Not satisfied with this, mud balls
were then brought into play and Rig

gobs of wet clay. So far as could;
be learned, no arrests were made.
The best thing the management
of the North Side club can do is to

an overflow crowd is present (for it
is on these occasions that the rowdies
get in their work) and demand the
arrest of every person who throws
a cushion, or who by his actions in
any way oversteps the bounds of;
President Weeghman and his asso

and .baseball lovers of the city.
