' Resolutions, Too.
The Methodist Brotherhood Sunday
adopted these resolutions on the mar
shalship matter:
"As a brotherhood we would earn
estly oppose any- attempt to engage
this organization In partisan politics,
but we do sincerely assert our right
as American citizens to express our
opinion and to act In accordance
therewith, when a question of good
government in either .city, state or
nation is concerned; believing that
such a crisis has arrived In the his
tory of our city we do most hearitly
endorse the action of the commercial

pointment of a city marshal, and re
quest the city council to take action

to get something straightened out.
Ellsworth, June 21. Ellsworth de
feated Abilene In a fast game of ball
Saturday afternoon by the score of
5 to 8. Abilene had Ellsworth out
classed' at the bat and should have
had the long end of the score but the
football scrimmage with the Abilene
catcher and an Ellsworth player lost
the game as It let four runs across
the pan.
Not until . the third did the scoring
begin. In the first Thompson hit to
left, and was advanced on Bechtold's
bunt, he being safe because no one
covered first to take the throw from
Wood. Miller flew to center, and
Klernan fanned after Brltton had
gone out to pitcher to first. ' White,
for Ellsworth, hit for two bases, and
stole third. Davis walked,' and stole
second. Brinker went out, short to
first; McKee wag out on fly to sec
ond, and Lewis retired, second to
first. No scores.

out with both sides.

son hit safe, and advanced on Bech'
told's out at first Miller got on on
Lewis' error. Brltton lost out at first
Wood was out at first White hit
hot one to second that went for a hit
An error by Abllene's short fielder
gave Davis a life at first, White hav-
lng advanced to second on a balk.
Brinker went to first on error of
right, Davis going to second on the
play. A single at this point to left
by McKee, and a bad throw to catch
runner at home allowed four runners
to romp home.
Castle, the first , man up in the
fourth went out from short to first,
and Woods whiffed Young and Mal
Ion. '
Army and Sommers each got a life
at first, but there was nothing do
In the fifth, the first three men up
for Abilene went out. Ellsworth got
one in this inning on a base on balls
to McKee, who stole second and scor
ed on Lewis' hit.
Abilene got her three runs In the
sixth. Miller walked; Brltton hit
safe, and hits by Klernan and CaBtle

Abilene Outhit the Sallna Bunch But
Could Not Make Good When It
Came to Errors Poor
Umpire and Darkness
Against Them.
Sallna, June 22. The game be
tween Abilene and Sallna was called
In the eighth by umpire McKee on
account of darkness when the score
stood 8 to 3. The game was fast
and Interesting but several costly
errors were made on account of the
heavy ground. The Abilene team
had the Sallna aggregation out
classed at the bat and Thompson had
the Sallna pitcher, Heftner, nested,
as he struck out 10 men to Heuner's
8. Burton the first man to pick up
a stick, dumped out a - . and got
transportation to second uy a passed
ball; Ellis went out by the grounder
route, then F. Wilson flew to right:
Burton who had gone to third on the
Ellis play, started for home after the
ball was caught but seeing that he
could not make It, started back to
third. The ball was thrown to Heff-
ner, but he let It dribble through him
and Burton registered.
After Ergot had gone out In the
second, T. Wilson took one In the
slats. Miller went free on a differ
ence of opinion, Wilson managed to
run around Quigley who had the
ball at second and both men were
safe. Brltton allowed Wilson to
cross the joy pan by hitting a two
bagger, :
The locals had some soup In the
third inning, off of errors made by
Abilene. Brltton receiving Krepps'
grounder threw bad to first letting
Krepps gain to second. Quigley drew
a pass and Krepps went to third sta
tion on a passed one. Strong popped
out to Ergot and Thompson dropped
Leonard a fly. Heffner .popped out
just like Strong did; Horrlll bit a
grounder which was thrown to first
and T. Wilson let It go througn
him with the result that Krepps and
Quigley counted.
There was nothing more doing un
til the eighth Inning. Botn teams
played fairly good ball now but It
was beginning to get dark. Thomp
son was having the best end of the
pitching deal right along but his
mates could not bunch hits.
Abilene made one In the eighth
by singles by Bechtold and Ergot
allowing Bechtold to score.
Sallna duplicated by Quigley hit
ting and Strong doing likewise.
Quigley stole third and scored on
Leonard's high fly to center which
Miller gobbled op and pegged home
very nearly getting the man at the
A cloud in the west now maae it
too dark for ball playing so Umpire
McKee called the game.
Bechtold played excellent ball at
second and got thre hits out of foar
time at bat Brltton was also the
gun at the bat getting a two-bagger
and a single. Thompson was a
world beater la the pitchers' box
yesterday or Sallna's pitcher was
very rotten but undoubtedly Abllea
had a much better batting eye.
Thompson let Sallna down with four
hit and' struck out It men.
TJmplre McKee mad good decis
ions at th eases but wat rotten
otherwise. Th Abllea rooters that
escorted the teas mad more' aots
than the lot fans la th grandstand.

Baseball Gossip.
There Is not a long face among
the fans but bright and beaming
watermelon grins are visible on all
their faces. Why? Well you see It
Is this way, Abilene has now what 's
called a baseball team whose mem
bers are all sluggers, base runners
and snappy players.
Wilson, the new manager, cer
tainly has been a great find for Abi
lene as he Is an gllaround baseball
player and understands his business
as manager of the team.
- Although Abilene was Just a little
slow in organising her baseball team
It has sow picked out a team and a
manager that will make the other
towns around the circuit sit up and
take notice.
Abilene has been dubbed around
the circuit for years a being the
poorest town In attending the ball
games,- However If It Is, It had a
larger attendance at th exhibition
games than Ellsworth bad at It open
ing game. Guess old Abllea still
has soma baseball enthusiast left
