Invincibles were all smiles Sunday night, having met the Somerton base ball nine and vanquished th- m in the tenth inning by a score of 16 to 9. The day was an ideal for baseball. A purse of $50 had beeu raised for the winning team, chairs and benches placed on the hill and levee overlook ing the grounds and everytwing done to make the assemblage confortable and the contest interesting. The game was one of the closest and most stubbornly contested game3 that has been played in Yuma this year. The following is the personnel of the teams: Yuma Martin, catcher; Balsz, pitcher; Coons, 1st base; Ramirez, 2d base; Rile', 3d- base; Shannahan, short stop; Shuckman, right field; C. Meeden, center field, B. Meeden, left field. Somerton Harris, catcher; Mar shall, pitcher; J. Liberger, 1st base; Flood, 2d base; Shorny, 3d base; R Liberger, short stop; Huckaby, right field , C. Liberger, center field ; Brinley, left field. Yuma went to the bat first ami Ramirez went around the diamon:! like a whirlwind scoring a run. Soni ertou, amid the din of tin horns and the yells of the bleachers, scored a couple of tallies. The second inning was not fruitful of a run for either nine. In the third inning Raniirtz again added a tally to the. Invincibles" score, and Flood, the "yellow kid" also scored for 'he Somerton's. It was in the third inning that the Yuma boys. made a grand stand play. Three men were on bases, no outs, and at bat; the man at bat sent the ball to short stop and in the excitement that prevailed, Flood, on third, got home, but the three men died dead on bases. At this juncture Riley took the pitcher's box and Balsz tX)k third. In the fourth inning the Somerton's became rattled, and the Yuma boys scored seven runs. The next two innings the Somertons caught up with the Yumasand the score stood nine to nine until the tenth inning. Good playing was done, but when Yuma ook the bat in the first half of the tenth inning, the Somsrton's weaken ed and let them run up a score of seven, making the score 16 to 9, which the farmer boy3 culd not break, Some excellent playing was don on both sides, and some very poor playing was also done. Martin had his bat ting eye with him and never failed to make a good hit. Brinley in the left field was death on flies and never made an error. Ramirez, while a whirlwind ac the bat, made several errors at sec ond base, which detracted from the reputation ho gained in playing short stop. Barney Meeden had lost his batting eye, and failed several times to live up to his reputation as the best batter in tho nine. It is safe to say, however, that Louie and Barney's ofi day will not occur very often and that they will continue to be the best bat ters, base runners and the most relia ole of players. Riley is a star pitcher. He has full control over the ball. He is not a very swift thrower but he can put the sphera in several different kinds of curves. His most famous throw is a drop rf which the batter seldom ever fails to bite at and seldom if ever hits. Marshall, the human catapult, lost some of bis prestige and the Yuma boys found him much easier than at the previous game. Harris behind the bat is a stone wall and Flood at second base is sure poison. The remainder of the players held up their parts of the game last Son day in an admiraMe manner, and the umpire, Muliord Winsor, escaped without serious injur . NfX't.

Development Work Coniiaenciul on the Lagnna Lauds. The Yuma Colorado River Geld Dredging company, which owns placer grounds at the Laguna, has empby e I, Chas. Feige with his two man and machinery to sink three prospecting shafts on their landB. To state the exact richness to the cubic yard of some of this ground would be making a bid for the reputation of a colossal liar. A good conservative estimate is 50c. per yard. Dredgers are working on Snake river, Feather river and the basis of Idaho on ground that aver ages 15 to 20 cents, and $2500 per month is the profit realized ou a $30 000 investment. There are dredger proposition outhe Col rado river that will in the near future prove veritable Golcondas, and after men who own and operate dredges come to realize the enormous wealth of the dredger lands along this river a boom will be added to Yuma county the like of which has never been known in the whole wide world. And the day :s not far distan t. c The company above mentioned re cently refused a cash offer of $200l for 400 acres of land, which proves that capital is coming to realize the possibilities ol these lands. Mr. Feige commenced work la9t week and the company has in hand consi derable development work to be in augurated shortly. Col. T. W. Brooks, president of the company, left Monday for San Fran cisco at the solicitation of dredger capitalists to submit propositions for the operation of a d edge on the land. Col. Brooks is very enthusiastic over his ultimate success and it is safe te p edict that within the next six months a dredge will be operating on these lands. -- Resolutions of Respect.
