Will Champion went to Salida a week ago Friday and while there he played with fast Salida team against the War Eagles of Denver. This team was played on Saturday and Sunday and he got a three aacker and a stolen base In each game. The War Eagles, who were to have played Rockvale on Tuesday, called the game off because of the fact that several of their players were so alck that they were not in a condition to play a reliable game. The Rockrale team at present is on a still hunt for the so-called cham pions of Fremont county but thus far their diligent search has been in vain. Anyone knowing the whereabouts of that aggregation will confer a favor up on Ed Agard and the other members of the Rockvale team by Informing them of the exact location of said team. It seems that Penrose and Florence are claiming the championship of the county totally without regard to the claims or the record of Rockvale. The Rockvale men do not intend to stand for this and ir games can be schedul ed they will leave no atone unturned to firing the honor home. Recently the Florence team defeat ed Salida and in the write-up given the event by the Florence papers It was stated that Rockvale had played the same team and had only gotten two hits, but that la a mlsfatement according to the score book which shows that Rockvale got 13 bits on that day Bear Gulch had a pay day on laat Wednesday.
