Last Sunday’s Milwaukee papers gave the fielding averages of all the players in the Wisconsin-lliinois league. Among the outfielders Miller of Wau sau, ranks twentieth with & percentage of .959. Among the first basemen, Brady, of Wausau, is tied with Tracy, of La Crosse for second place with .984 to his credit. Moll’s figures for second and third base are decidedly off as far as Wausau’s players are concerned. He gives manager Ferguson credit for a percentage of 959 as a second base men in 47 games and does not mention Fox in that position. He gives Fox a credit of .933 as a third baseman in 107 games and McAuley .926 in the same position in 115 games, a total of 222 games, whereas Wausau only played 126 games. Again the wooden head. Among the shortstops he places Beu miller last with a percentage of .889. Among the catchers Wausau fourth, giving Erickson .985 in, 112 games. In the pitching staff Lang is first in the Wausau club, ranking fourth in the league. In 50 games played he had a tieldiDg average of .982 Dunbarranked twentieth with an average of 955 Dooner vas third with an average of .936 in 31 games played. Bartos fielded a percentage of ,931. Fox played the third base position nearly all season. Ferguson played Fox’° position only while the latter was laid up with a wounded knee and while McAuley had a bad ankle, yet President Moll, appar ently gives him credit for playing the whole season or else Wausau was short a second baseman 79 games, which is all the more to the credit of Wausau, it winning the pennant with only two in fielders. On the other hand Moll cred its Fox as third in the league among third baseman with a percentage of .933 in 107 games and at the same time he gives McAuley a percentage of .926 in the same position for 115 games—a total of 222 games for the two. Among the shortstops Buetniller of Wausau is last with a percentage of .899. Erickson of Wausau ranks fourth among the catchers with a percentage of .985. It is rumored that the Minneapolis team has drafted Catcher Erickson of the Wausau club. This, if true, will mean a serious loss to the Wausau club CITY COUNCIL At Friday night’s meeting of the city council the ordinance providing for an issue of $20,000 worth of city bonds for the purpose of providing better fire protection for the city, was carried by a unanimous vote. The ordinance to bond the city in the sum $15,000 for the purpose of improving the water system, was also passed by a unanimous vote. The mayor appointed Aldermen Wolf, Roloff and liitlemen a committee to canvas the vote on the bond issue. They reported figures as given else where in this issue. The council refused to pay the Wis consin Telephone Cos. for the use of the latter’s poles on the Town voad in carrying fire alarm wires. The council took this action because the company has the use of the city’s streets, for which the city receives nothing. The committee on claims rec ommended that the sum of S3OO and sl2 monthly be offered Mrs. Delilah Pierce in settlement of her suit for $5,000 dam ages. Mrs. Pierce fractured both arms in falling over a broken sidewalk plank on N. First Ave. a year ago. There will be another meeting of the council Nov. 18. COMPLETE TABLE. In this issue of the Pilot will be found a correct, condensed statement of the result of last Tuesday’s election. The figures are taken from the tally sheets of the board of canvassers and are absolutely correct. The table is more complete than any heretofore published and is so condensed that it can be put in a scrap book for future reference. This our readers should do. Put it away where you can find it at any time. You will want to refer to two and four years from now. The getting up of such a table as this represents cousid. . able labor and we hope our readers will appreciate our efforts. A study of this table is inter esting. It shows in what portions of the county each candidate was strong est and where the other fellow had his friends. The candidates themselves will want to refer to it when about to it make another campaign, if they con template such a move. THE ELECTION RETURNS. Elec;ioo returns were received at the Wausau club house od Tuesday even ing until a late hour. Refreshments in the way of sandwiches and coffee were served to club members. Returns were also received of the democratic arid republican headquar ters, as well as at the Y. M. C. A. build iug. The demonstration on the streets was not what it usually has been.

In spite of the snow and wet field, Wausau and Antigo played a good game Saturday, a game that was worth standing out m the cold to watch. The first half was rather slow but the sec ond half was as fast as coul ’ be ex pected with the field in tnc conu lion it was. The last ten minutes of the game was exceptionally fast for the Wausau team as all the scoring was done in this time. It looked at the beginning of the second half as if neither team would score but Wausau soon warmed up and had things'moving their own way. The first half opened by Antigo kick ing off to Wausau who were stopped on their 30 yard line. Antigo held and M u mm punted to the center of the field Wausau in turn held Antigo and the ball was sent down in Wausau’s terri tory by a fake punt. Wausau lost the ball ou their 25 yard line on a fumble. Antigo, by making their downs twice had Wausau’s goal in danger but Wau sau held and Antigo was not able to score. Wausau soon had the bail out of danger as Murnm went about 30 yards on 1. quarter back run with Wiek making 20 yards around the end In nearly every”game of the season, Wau sau’s goal has been threatened during the first five or ten minutes of play but each time the opposing team has been kept from scoring. In the next play, after Wiek made his run, Wausau lost the ball on a forward pass bat got it hack again soon on a similar mistake ot Anti| ’s. Wausau then forced the bail up to Autigo’s 25 yard line where they were forced to kick. Munun tried a place kick but the ball fell short. Antigo got the ball and puuted. Dur ing the remaining few minutes of the tir.-t half the play was in the center of of the field. At the beginning of the second half Wausau kicked to Drake who made about 20 yards before he was tackled Antigo tried a forward pass but it was so low that Sampson caught it. The local team then carried the ball inside of the visitors teu yard line. Here Wausau tried a pass which was fumbled and one oi he Antigo team fell on it in back of the 'ine making a touchback. After the touchback, Antigo kicked from the 25 yard lide to Gearhart. Wausau took the ball up the field for about twenty yards and then Murnm kicked over the goal line making an other touch back. The visitors again kicked from the 25 yard line and this time held Wausau in the center of the field. Wausau lost the ball but got it back by Sampson falling on a fumble. Wausau saw that they had tc score soon or not at all and so by a united effort of the whole team the ball was soon within'twenty yards of goal. From here a long foi w tra pass to Taugher and a short run oy ui gave Wausau five points. Ant the point was soon added by Murnm k.ctiug goal. Antigo kicked off to Sampson and Wausau soon had the ball on the visi tors thirty yard line. Here Wausau fumbled but Wiek picked it up and be fore all the Antigo team knew what was going on he had made a touch down. He was tackled just as he crossed the line at oue corner of the field. Murnm punted out for a place from which to place kick but on ac count of the slippery field Johnson slipped and the right to try goal was forfeited. There were only about two minutes more of play and most of this time was taken up by Antigo kicking off to Wausau. Taugher is generally fine on handling forward passes but last Saturday he was above the average. Alexander was handicapped in haudling passes by a lame leg. Murnm was punting better than usual Saturday and in his quarter back runs were one of the features of the game. His generalship of the team was better all around last Saturday than iu the other games. The line up was . Wausau Antigo J.
