NO MARION SCALPS
FOR j THE INDIANS. Baseball Game by Lamp S//f was Watched by One of the Largest Crowds that Ever Enured the Enclosed Grounds at One Time. Red Men had their Wigwams with Them. « The Sioux Indians’ baseball team went down to defeat before the Marions last night before one of the |l largest crowds that ever attended a 1 ^baseball game in this oity. The large, I number of people was drawn there; both by the reports of the good work the Indian team have been doing of ^ late and also largely by the novelty of a game’s being played at night. The diamond, as marked off by for last night’s game is only thjee quarters the size of that ordinarily used and the fielders ph y in different relative positions. That is to say, the short-stop and second baseman play about half way from the baselines to homo plate and the outfilders play about on the regular baselines. Thus the center fielder plays on second base as well as his own position. The ball used is about an inch larger in circumference than the league ball and is soft and rn color white, so as to be easily seen. A bat much thinner than the regular one is used. ilie UlalllUllu ummou u; thirty gasolene lamps strung on wires jnst ontside of the baselines. The visitors had two wigwams pitcheun . nst back of first base which lent a novel effect to the lighted field. One. of the redskins had a long feather in his cap which. however, did not scare the locals. The game itself was close and excit ing, the good playing and experience in handling the ball of the redskins 1 being pitted against the better playing i and inexperience of tne local team, i In the first inning the Marions ' fell all over the sphere and the Indians scored a run. In their half the locals piled up four tallies by ex icellent batsmansnip. Neither side scored again until the fifth inning, when the Indians added another run to tlieir score. In the seventh—lucky seventh—the Marions made two more runs by means of two hits. The Indians braced themselves in tlie windup and made two more tallies, tlie final score being 6-4. While putting the last Sinox out of plav, Mooreliead and the redskin collided in some wav and the popular s >cond baseman suffered a severe nose-bleed. The attendance was remarkably large, there being over 1,100 paid ad missions at the gate. Estimates of the crowd present have been made as high as 3,000. The features of the game were Me Phillip’s pitching, Mooreliead’s con versation, Galvin’s batting and the CAMPERS RETURN. mf Several young men who have been ^ camping at Cheesqquakes, returned to ^ \this city yesterday after a verv enjoy able week. They areJRamsay Crowell, fdward Keasbey, Alvin Fox and t Harry Wight. SEXTON’S PUZZLE.

M. & S. Traction Company Said to Have the Right of Way from Metnchen. MATTERS ARE QUIET. Suggestion is Made that the New Bruns wick Company May Enter into a Deal with#e Public Service—Corporation to Make Connections Between their Lines — Plainfield is Interested In the midst of the trolley activities in Sonth Amboy and Wood bridge in which the Central Jersey Traction Company and the Elizabethpoit, Am boy and Long Branch Railway Com pany are concerned, the Plainfield Conrier-News prints tne following concerning the proposed line to Plain field : “Checkmate has been worked on the Raritan Traction Company in its effort to rou its line into Plainfield from Perth Amboy, The Middlesex and .Somerset Traction Company, Radel’s line, which was recently credited with a desire to get into Plainfield, also through Metnchen, holds the key to the situation. “Both lines have been anxious to run luto this city from Metnchen and each has been working hard to make the way for an extension smooth. “When it became known that the Raritan line, which comes into Me tnclien from Perth Amboy, was working to get into Plainfield, the New Brunswick men, whose line runs into Metnchen at right angles to the Riritan road,grew exceedingly anxious in a subterranenu wav. When the Rnritan men went hunting rvglits of way ont of Metnchen they found the only desirable ones over a consider able stretch signed over to the New Brunswick line. The latter had options covering about four blocks riu’ht in line with the only good route out of Metuehen. “Since the discovery the Raritan line hns remained quiescent. It is not likely tiiat it will do anything further, for the only other plan for reaching this city involves the tan ning back of the track about a mile. Aotive steps have been suspended bv the New Brnnwsick traction men for the time being, bnt they are supposed to be watching their chance to pnsh on into the city. “One of the things that is holding them back is the expected opposition of the local line. There it no donbt that the Public Service Corporation would object verv ranch to a direct line from New Brunswick right into the city under the control of the Middlesex traction men. On the othei hand a connection between the two roads would be decidedly ad vantageous to the local line, and some agreement regarding the exten sion nml connection of trackage is ex pected between them. “One of the men interested in the expected deal said to a reporter yes terday afternoon mat the New Bruns wick and local lines would shortly get together and decide on - some agreement. It is expected rlftt the two lines will meet at Oak Tree. The Arlington avenue line would oily need about two miles of extension to run right to that point. From there the New Brunswick people would construct to Metuchen. Under agree ment. with this line tanning, the fare from here to Oak Tree wonid be tive cents. Round tiips from here to New Brunswick might be offered for a inarter” Rp NEW DRINK Rp Ulj OR/dtse HICKEY l/V Cooling and Refreshing Everyone Likes It.

S. SCHEUER & SON New Jersey's Reading Grocers WAS RUN DOWN: IN SMITH ST. _ Man who did not Give his Name, Grabbed Step of Carriage to Save Himself. RUNAWAY PREVENTED. l A great deal of excitement was caused in Smith street last night when a man, who was crossing near Elm street was run over by a carriage and only saved himself from serious : injury by grabbing the step on the | vehicle and allowing himself to be dragged until the horse could be I stopped. When this was done the fellow disappeared in the e-rowd be fore anyone could learn his name. It was about 7.45 o'clock when the crowd was going toward the encloseii grounds to see the baseball game. How the man came to be struck is not known, but he apparently walked directly into the rig and tbe front wheels passed over him. He grabbed the steps before the rear wheels touched him and was dragged for some distance. The whole thing happened so sud denly that those in the carriage, some of whom were ladies, were greatly startled and they began to scream. This, together with the cries of the man, frightened the horse, and, but for the quick action of Mr. LaBrec, of Brighton avenue, a runaway would have resulted. He grabbed the animal and stopped the rig. The man, who was clinging to the step was not seriously injured. NANSEN AND PARDELLO. Wrestling Match has Been Ar ranged and Date Fixed for August 27. H. P.

J. f A FIRST SHARK WAS CAUGHT YESTERDAY. | - Morris Audsley. of Plainfield, had a Young Man Eater on his Line Landed it in the Boat with a Crab Net—Carried Away the Hook the First Time and Put up a Game Fight. __ ■■■ A party of fishermen had every reason to helieve that the sea serpent had really arrived in Raritan bay yesterday. They were quietly fishing for weaK fish and had tied their boar to a stake a short distance west of the lighthouse when Morris Audsley, of Rlainfield, one ot the party, felt a tremendous tug at his line. He gave it a jerk, but the resistance nearly bent his pole double and he thought he had hooked fast the bottom of the bay. Something gave way, however, and when he pulled up, he found the lower end of his line was missing hook and all. The party exchanged remarks as to where the line had gone while Mr. Audsley placed a new one on his reel. He threw it overboard with the re mark that he was ready to catch a whale if such a fish was beneath them. About a minute later there was a second jerk on Mr. Andslev’s line. The boat rocked nnd it appeared as if they were being towed up the river. While Mr. Audsley was giving all his attention to his line and keeping himself from being hauled out of the boat, the others in the carry were thinking about throwing out an anchor in PflRP thp Rfnkp tn trliinh thn Imot was tied broke. , The excitement increased when two or three vicious tucs on the line as sured the fishermen that something alive was on the other end and it was something unusual. Mr. Audsley had a great deal of trouble in hauli^ in. The fish or serpent, he knes which, was giving him all kind game, but the line held fast and ly when near enough to the surf! it was found that a shark was cans all the commotion. With'Xhe aid | a crab net the shark was' into the boat. It measured a vard length. Mr. Audsley who is a cousin of Madam Audsley. of this city, took his prize home with him and feels that he has made the biggest catch of the season. Besides the shark, the party caught twelve weak fish. HIT WITH CUE. §‘ One Man in Jail and the Other in Bed Hearing Later. Andrew Rusko was arrested last night on a charge of atrocious assault.
