For the State Capital Ball
Tossers in a Series of
Three Games.
By Superior Playing-The Second
Game Was a Sligging Match.
The Club's Jon o y.
he predictions of The Gazette that
he Billings baseball club would take
two games out of the three games with
Helena has come to pass. The local
team accompanied by about a score of
rooters and backers departed on the
early Saturday morning train for the
state capital, where they proceeded to
teach the boys of that place how to play
the national game as well as to bet.
The Helenaites were not of that peace
able mind which usually occupied a
place in their craniums and on Sator
day they held to their wads with a
death grip and if any bets were made it
was at great odds In favor of Billings.
Our boys played the game of their lives
and bested their opponents.
The Helena Independent. of Sunday
morning says of Saturday's game:
Nine nimble and capable cowboys
whose present post office address is Bill
ings came to town Saturday morning
and roped the home players in good
style in a ball game. Briefly stated,
they outplayed the homers at every
point, though not to the extent indicat
ed by the score, which was 14 to 6.
The game opened auspiciously for the
Helenas. They made two runs in the
first on an error by Rose and three hits
in succession. The side was retired by
a neat double by Rose, who gathered
MoDonough's grounder, touohed Ryan
and threw to first in time to catch the
batter. Billings drew a blank in the
first, Casey got .a hit but was forced at
second a minute later. Scott had pre
Sviously hit anu easy one to Burton and
Marshall fanned. It looked like an
, even thing.
But after the cheerful first, the
homers could do nothing much with
MeNeeley's benaers. Though they got
a total of fifteen hits they were scatter
ed that not more than one run resulted
in any one inning. The second, third,
fifth and sixth innings were sad and
gloomy occasions, the total result being
four goose eggs.
Billings broke the ice in the second,
getting one cake of it, and they never
failed to take at least one when they
came up with the willow, sometimes
getting several more than one. In the
fifth they landed on the sphere for so
many hits in a row that the grandstand
lost counot and runs came around in
bunches, In the seventh they came
I- near repeating the performance, getting
' three, one of them a beautiful drive far
over center fence for four bases, a pair
of shoes, and several pieces of silver.
I Zearfross was behind the willow which
connected with the ball in such violent
fashion. McDonough and Scott lined
out triples during the afternoon. Bar
ring the sensational home run by Zear
Sfross, Flannery was the bright partiou
lar star of the day with the wagon
tongue, for out of five times up he got
five hits, two of them being doubles.
There were probably 800 spectators
in the grand stand.

the start off, but he was not given de.
cent support. In the first inning Hel
ena had one score with two men out
and two men on bases, when Freeman
muffed a fly in right permitting the
runners and batter to score. In this
same inning two more scores were
made, one by safe bitting and the other
on a home run. In the second inning
two runs were made, Harker having
two strike-outs to his credit. He was
then replaced by Sporer, who only
stayed in one lnnug and a half. He
allowed the Helenaites five scores, al.
though he had three strike.outs on them.
Marshall, the third baseman, was then
placed in the box. From then oil it
was a slugging match. The boys could
not ginger up a little. Marshall had
eight strike-outs in his five innings.
He had great speed and the Helena boys
said that they would just as soon be bit
by a cannon ball asq by a baUil thrown by
Home ruas were plentiful in the
game. Helena made four and Billings
three, Flanuery, Marshall and Me.o
Neeley having the credit for opr club.
It is thought by those who witnessed
the game that had Harker been given
a fair show by keeping him in the box
the game would have been much
differentwith a possibility of Billings
wvinning out.
Roy Evans, who accompanied the
team, returning homne yesterday, says
that Injustice bas been done the boys
by the report that they were out on a
carouse Saturday night. He says the
boys conducted themselves very gentle
manly and they lost Sunday's game be
cause they were out of luck.
lnllings Plays alu N udl Dfeate
The third and last game with Helena
was played yesterday afternoon. Mo
Neely was again in the box for Billings
and as in the first game he proved too
mnuch for the Helenaites. It was a
hard fought battle as each club had
one game to its credit and the last one
was to decide the championship. The
Billings boys were determined to win
it if good ball playing could do so.
The reports of the game which reachbed
Billings last night were meagre, but it
must have been a splendid exhibition
in which our boys again carried off the
honors, the score being 12 to 9.
The Gazette received a telegram last
night from the editor, who accompanied
the team to Helena, in which he stated
that our boys out-played Helena at
every point.
The passenger train which is to brAng
tbe rooters home is about eight hours
late and will not arrive here until'
about 4 o'oclock this afternoon.
The ball club will continue its weste
ern tour, having left Helena today
for Pocatello. They will play one
game there tomorrow with the strong
est team in the west. Then they go to
Ogden and Salt Lake for three games
each, returning to Butte for a series
with the Boston & Montana's, and
playing two more games at Pocatello
on the way. The club will arrive home
in time for four games during the
fair week with Helena and Butte.
* * *
One of the great games of the season
was played at Butte Sunday between
the Pocatello and the Boston and Mon
tana clubs. The score was 2 to I in
favor of the former. It was a pitcher's
battle, but seven safe hits being made
during the game, three off the Butte
pitcher, and four off the visitors. The
errors were six on each side. Pocatello
made one score in each the third and
sixth innings, while the Boston & Mon
tana's scored in the sixth.
Accounts of each day's game on the
trip will be bulletined the evening of
each day at The Gazette office and R.
E. Nix's Sideboard saloon.

Flannery, their former crack center

The Pocatellos have sent word that

very fast ball club and likely to prove
all that Butte can handle.
To Bring thie Montana HoyM Home from
Man Franelano.
At a meeting of the citizens of Butte
last Thursday night it was decided to
emulate the exoample of several other
states in raising money to pay for a
special train to bring the soldier boy.
home from San Francisco. In this in.
stance Butte intends to do the thing,
the whole thing and nothing but the
whole'thing all by itself and since it
has started the ball to rolling there Is
no saying it will not accomplish its
purpose. Butte intends to raise $80,.
000 among its own citizeolns, which in to
be used ini bringing the gallant. Mon
tann boys to that city in a special train
and then giving them a rousing reoep
tion. The list war started by a sub
scription of $2,500 from W. A. Clark
and $1,000 from Charles W. Clark.
A handsome sterling silver badge
will be given to each of the soldiers,
and in places where the ranks are va
cant the badge will be turned over to
the family of the missing man. The
state legislature will be asked to make
the appropration, so that the gift will
be from the state, but pending this ac
tion Chbarles W. Clark will pay for
them and take hif chances with tile
Charlers W. Olark's offer was accept.
ed and a handsome solid silver badge
with a bronze crossbar was selected.
The badges at factory price will cost $8
apiece, and Lieut Calkins was anthot
ized to order 1,085 of them through J.
H. Leynon, who represents the manu
feotarer, Gorbham Manufacturing com
pany, of Providence, Rhode Island.
The badge will consist of a silver disn
about the size of a dollar, suspended
from a bronze crossbar with a red
white and blue ribbon. On the face of
the diaseis a picture of Liberty orown.
