MONTPELIER EXAMINER. A. MONTPELIER, IDAHO, FRIDAY, JUNE 2 , iqu VOL. XVII No. 18 TWO GOOD GAMES ON HOME DIAMOND McCammon Team Defeats Montpelier by Score of 3 to 2; Montpelier Defeats Bancroft by Score ' of 7 to l--Home Team in Good Trim, A The base ball aeaaon opened in Montpelier last Sunday afternoon with a game between the McCam mon Independents and the home team, and it was one of the snappi est games ever played on the MonU (TcToae of the first inning it wks plain to be seen that the two teams were pretty evenly matched, with the visitors having a little the beat of it as far as batting was concerned. Over 300 people witnessed the game and they went away with their base ball enthusiasm registering at summer heat and expressing a de. sire to see another contest between the two teams at an early date. Although the score book showed seven errors chalked up against the home team and five against the visitors, the score was held down to 3 to 3 in favor of- McCammon. Montpelier got one man across the rubber in the 1st inning, but the visitors failed to score until the 4th inning, when two men crossed the home plate. Both runs, however, were the result of Montpelier errors. McCammon's third score, in the 5th inning, was also made on an error by the home team. Montpelier got their second score in the Oth inning, and in the last three innings goose eggs were dish, ed up on both sides in rapid succes sion. I (lid out the not Sur C. er dia and lion had be lie can ball the don and is but to go Lawrence Spongberg occupied the slab for the home team, and on the whole be pitched a good game, striking out 8 men. Id the 3rd inning, however, it looked bad for Lawrence. Two men were given bases—one on balls and one by be ing hit with the ball. The bases were tilled by another one of the visitors lining out a safe one to first. They had two men down, and at this critical time Lawrence "saved the day" by faning the next man up. And what a sigh of relief went up from the crowd when the three men "died on bases." Frank Bourne umpired the game and his decisions were so fair that not a single kick was registered by either team. Only once or twice was there a least chance for a kick, and although the decisions were against the visitors, not a murmur was heard from one of them.

Time of game, one hour and 50 min utes. The McCammon team was invited to return here Tuesday—Memorial Day—for another game, hut the in vitation was declined for the reason that several of tbe team could not leave home on that day. Being auxious for a game, Secre tary Dalton wired the Bancroft team Monday, asking them to comç up Tuesday. The invitation was accepted and a big crowd witnessed another fairly good game that after, noon. While the visitors showed up pretty strong at the opening of the game, it soon became evident that they were not as classy players as the boys from the Junction City, and , for five innings Montpelier handed them goose eggs. In the 6tb one man crossed Ute home plate, which waa the sum total of their scores. I On the whole the Montpelier team put up a better game than they (lid Sunday. Carl Spongberg oc cupied the slab and held the visitors down to two safe hits and struck out ten men. At the close of the 8th inning the score stood 7 to 1 in favor of Montpelier and as the visitors were shut out in the 9th, Montpelier did not go to bat.

A dance for the lienefit of the Montpelier team was given at the pavilion Tuesday ni^ht. The at tendance was not as large as it should have been, but everybody had an enjoyable time. The net proceeds of the dance and Sunday's and Tuesday's games will be used towards completing the grand stand. The ball park will also lie fenced right away. Montpelier can then boast of having as good a ball park as there is in the state. The lumber for the fence and grand stand is being furnished at cost by the C. W. & M. Co. and the Sned don Lumber Co. Messrs. Dalton and Sneddon of these firms have also contributed liberally toward the building of the grand stand. There is now about $160 in the treasury, but it will require at least 8150 more to complete the work and that amount ought to lie raised easily. l'he team bas made a good show, ing at the two games played and with proper encouragement and sup port they will soon be in trim to meet any amateur team in Southern Idaho. Tomorrow morning the team will go to Green River for two games, 'lhe line-up will be the same as in Tuesday's game, exoept that Dales man will take Thiel's place.

The act also created periods of rest for the employes. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad company attacked the law as uncon stitutional on the ground that it applied to inner.state as well as to inter-state railroads and employes. The order by which the Inter state Commerce Commission placed the law iqto operation was attacked also. The railroad claimed that congress could Dot and did not attempt to delegate to the commission the power to require ieports of violation of the law; that the labor and ex pense necessary to make the reports constituted a taking of the railroad's property without due probps of law and therefore in violation of the constitution; and that it compelled self.incriminating by officers and employees of the railroad, also in violation of the constitution. The objections to the law were met with denials by the government. Both the law itself and the order, drafted by the Interstate Commerce Commission, were upheld as consti. national by the Circuit court of the United Slates for the Distriot of Maryland, where the case originat the of the a of ed. IS MONTPELIER GOING TO CELEBRATE Is Montpetlier going to celebrate 9 Well, it doesn't look like it, if we are to judge from the number who attended the meeting last Friday night, which was called to deter mine whether or not tbe eagle should scream here on the Glorious Foarth. In response to the call published in last week's Examiner and the 40 postal cards sent out by the secre tary of tbe Commercial olub, just four men showed up at the club J22BM. - Naturally those four were in fav or of celebrating, but they didn't feel warranted in taking any action on the question, in view of the lack of interest shown by tbe business men generally. Montpelier was "a dead one" last year on tbe 4t.h, but it shouldn't be this year. There is lime yet to get up a creditable blow out for tbe 4th, but we will have to get busy p. d. q. if We do it.

The first issue was printed at Centennial, Wyo., but the plant will be moved at once to this place and will oc cupy temporary quarters until the Inew office building is completed,/ tor which ground has been broken A n a site opposite the opera houBq Tfie hrst issue, hurriedly gotten up, contained some good articles boost ing Cokeville for the county seat, hut owing to an error in stating the date of election, the issue was not generally circulated as bad been in tended. The editor, V. V. Ten nant, has been promised snbstan. liai support by the business men And citizens and will iriake Cokeville his future home. Last Saturday and Sunday the Cokeville base ball team crossed bats with the Green River team at the latter place, with the scores re sulting 17 to 3 and 0 to 5 in favor of Green River. News of the de feat here was somewhat softened by the explanation that the umpire was suffering from a severe case of "Partialitis," but it will take more than Western Uniou dope to relieve our grief. Following this run of bad luck at base ball, the team went over to Rock Springs, where on Monday they were flattened out by a score of 18 to 2. On receiving this sad news at Cokeville the absent team was dial, longed by wire to play the "Rag Heads" (Hindus) at home next Sun. day. Tuesday our team somewhat redeemed themselves by turning the tables on Rock Springs by a score of 5 to 2 in their favor. The boys, accompanied by the mayor and others, returned home today, look ing none the worse for their six-day trip.' Send in your proposals for future games, they have "come back."

L. R. Clough, mariagci for the company's plant at Caldwell, was here a couple of days last week and was so favorably impressed with the field he expressed the belief that the company would later on establish a creamery here. Mr. Small informed us Wednes day that his shipment of cream this week would reach nearly 200 cans and by next week it would exceed that number considerably, company can be relied upon to always pay the top price for butter fat, and their patrons can depend upon receiving a square deal and prompt payments.

Yesterday after noon he addressed a fair sized audience in the court house at Faris hut only about fifty turned out to hear him at the Odd Fellows hall in this city last night. He explained his position in a plain and straight forward manner and showed the benefits that would be derived if the plan of assessing property at full cash value was strictly adhered to in every county. He takes the stand that the law requiring a minimum 5 mills levy for school purposes and 2| mills for state purposes is not mandatory and that the various boards of county commissioners can fix the levies for those funds at such figures as will raise just the actual amounts neces. at day ter ous He of K on He set by H. of al «ary. Wh«*n asked about what valuation would be placed upon the railroads, the governor said he was not pre pared to say at this time, but all information possible on this subject was being obtained and he felt con. rident that when tbe state board of equalization meets in August, they would lie prepared to place a fair and equitable valuation on the rail road, telegraph and telephone com panies.
