MONTPELIER EXAMINER. VOL. XXV. MONTPKLIXR, IDAHO.

J Montpelier _ • ••**» ? ■ * The Wyomlng-ldaho baseball league opened last Friday in the coldest weather of the season, arctic breezes, blowing at both Kemmerer and Rock Springs. Interest in the new league drew good crowds at both places, however, showing that the league will receive the support necessary to be a financial success. In the league openers Kemmerer handed Montpeliqr a package, 19 to 4, in a loosely played game,and Green River/trimmed Rock Springs 8 to 6. Saturday's games were called off at both places because of the weather. Sunday's games make the succese of the league assured, as all four teams played A-l baseball before good crowds. The Kemmerer outfit came to Montpelier witji expectations of another walk-away and barely nosed under the wire on the long end of a 7 to 6 score, and Rock Springs turned the tables of the Green River Brewers 9 to 8 in a 12-lnning game. The Camels received an unmerci ful drubbing in the league openef at Kemmerer. The coal miners simply walked away with the game, ably as sisted in said Jaunt by Vealey. The two Innings he lasted he aided and abetted seven mén to get to first with walks and handed them five hits, the total debit being six runs. Pugmire went in in the third after sitting on a cold bench, in a cold wind with a cold wing and fared no better, the Kem merer sluggers slamming the ball to all corners of the field. Carl Spong berg then deserted first base and en tered the box for the first tipie in years. He held the Kemmerer outfit down nicely, pitching a splendid game, allowing only one real bit, and walking no one. Kemmerer won the first game from a conglomeration of causes too nu merous to enumerate. MontpeHer piled up errors in stacks, coudn't hit the ball, and neither the pitchers or the team had support. It was simply a case of unpreparedness, assisted by rotten weather. Montpelier's four lonesome tallies came in the fourth and sixth Innings. In the fourth'Jack son, Spongberg and Garrison scored, and in the sixth frame Bronson nego tiated the sacks for one tally. Score Kemmerer 19, Montpelier 4. FRIDAY'S GAME. Kemmerer -.

We seem to have ignored the beautiful tribute of President Wilson ss he stood at the graves of our sol dier dead in far-away France that "our thoughts and purposes now are consecrated to the maintenance of the liberty of the world and of the union of its people in a single comradeship of liberty and of right—it was for this that they conscientiously offered their lives." Memorial Day this year waa the most fitting In the history of the country and was universally observed throughout the land—made so be cause there floats In France the plain tive call of Ups. the echo of which Is heard around the world. The sig lcutce of the day impressed the IliBns of people who assembled to •t'rred at the sight of soldiers. But In Montpelier there was no marching beneath the flags, no ora tor to laud their sacrifices, not the remotest sign of an assembly to hear a program for the sacred dead. How anv community with a heart in Its breast. a lover of humanity, could • ignore so great an occasion is beyond ' conception or belief - . -r There were bevies of beautiful cut tjifi £ flowers snd plants in readiness for a fitting tribute to the dead who rest In the city of the departed, and tba cemetery wax the only place that re R H Montpelier .

Both teams played good ball and the Kemmerer aggregation was lucky In winning 7 to 6. y ,\ ,1 r I Montpelier took the lead from the start, scoring four runs in the first inning when Bronson, Hartman, Jackson and Spongberg touched all four sacks. In the sticond frame Kemmerer scored one, by Siegel, and in the fourth H. Smith and Swanson scored. Sharp clouted a two-bagger in the sixth, scoring himself. Unfor-T', tunately no one was on bases whe^ he made his clout. Kemmerer too i the lead in their half of the slxtt, scoring four runs, when Harve r weakened, making the score 7 to 5./ *'Ace" Vealey relieved Harvey qii the slab and partly redoemed himself by striking out five men and allowiii# no runs the last (wo innings. Mont pelier's chance for a win came In the' ninth. With one down Hartman scored, cutting Kemmerer's lead toJ one run. Jackson got on, made aec ond; Spongberg fanned. Polly Lehr bas, who took second base when Gar rlson sprained an ankle, slammed one over second base, advancing Jackson to third, and stealing second himself. Montpelier had a chance to score then—men on second and third, and : two out. "Ace" Vealey had a chance to win his own game with a single, but couldn't cut the mustard, whif fing three times.
