Our boys mm in on the morning train yester day, from Montgomery, were they j took two of the three games played. The Parkersburg team c&me in later and are a fine looking bunch of play- j ers. They say that they are going to take two of the three games to ! be played here. Manager Mack says 1 he will have something t" say about; that. A new left hand i itcher has | been added to the tiam, manager; Mack getting him from Charleston- : The Charleston manager had ? so! many pitchers signed up that it was necessary for him to let some o'; them go. We are . tied with Par- | kersburg for third place and who, ever wins the game today will be j occupying that position. Had it not rained yesterday, there ! would have been at least one thousand people out to the game. People j were here from Pomeroy, Middleport. Mason City, and all up the K. & M. as far as Charleston. Bed Henry was down and tells us the doctor ? says that he will be able to get back in the game in a couple of weeks. Saturday's came.

Lefty Brown's home run in the j game Sunday at Montgomery, lias won him a home. Brownie is surely alright. The new left hand pitcher, signed from Charleston, will probably pitch j one of the games against Mont gomery. Yesterday was salary day with the players and Sec'y John Hutchinson made their hearts glad when he pres ented them with their checks. Keep your eye on that man Pickles, 1 on the third sack. He has the stuff with him that puts players in the big league. The [wipers away from here have nothing but praise for catcher Hun te.\ You don't see anyone stealing > second while he is on the job. A record breaking crowd will greet Montgomery, here next Sunday.Ex cursions both ways on tlie K&M. and B.&O. will bring lots of people RECOVER : APPOINTED FOR THE HOCKING VALLEY -WILL BE CONTESTED. Columbus, Ohio. May 16.?It wis announced tonight that tomorrow at j torneys for the Hocking \"alley Rail way company will apply to Federal | Judge Saler, for an order to head off !? receivership for the Hocking Valley established today by Judge E. B. Kinkead. of the common pleas court. Judge Kinkead appointed John M. Sheets, former attorney general of Ohio, and Henry J. Booth, local at torney, as receivers for the Hocking ^ alley. A few minuts later he over ruled the motion to have the case transferred to the federal court. . The court enjoined the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway company from ???ting stock in the Hocking Valley -ceently acquired and held that the last election :,f the Hocking Valley ?it which the Chesapeake and Ohio interests asserted theic control, by the election of Chesapeake and Ohio men as officers and directors of the Hocking Valley, was illegal. In the ??ourts's judgment the Ches|>eake and Ohio was within its rights in buying Hocking \ alley stock as an invest ment but not for the purpose of con trolling the company. New York, May 16.?The Chesa peake and Ohio Railway company, which owns the majority of the com mon stock of the Hocking Valley Railway company, issued astatement here reviewing the proceeding which 1 resulted in the receivership today :.nd j attacking the plaintiffs in the actios. 1'laintiffs in this suit" says the i statement "acquired a few shares of preferred ,-tock in H?0!>, which j holding were immediately made the! basis of numerous dem ;nds upon the officers and directors of the Hocking \ alley. It has been frequently charged in open court a nd never denied that the plaintiffs purchased their stock for the purpose maintairi? in?j this litigation. We need hardly say Chesapeake & Ohio and Lake Shore are not engag-. ed in any combination in restraint of' trade or otherwise. The Chesapeake ond Ohio hasj purchased its interest in the Hocking ^ alley in absolute good faith for the purjiose of developing its business. " ROUTE NOT CHOSEN. In a recent issue of the Manufac turers Record, there appears an in man's successor in the railroad world m which he says the C. & O. will build a connecting line with the Hocking Valley, but he doesn't state that the line will be across the Ohio river at Portsmouth, as the Times of that city recently asserted. Mr. Hawley stated that the route has not in realty, been definitely set tled nor will it be until all engineers reports are in. Lt is very probable that the Huntington-Wellston route will be adopted, that presenting the bes grade for crossing the Ohio and the best grade through to Symmes Creek \ alley whereby to reach the Hocking Valley road. J- C. FRANKLIN COMPANY. Out of compliment to Mr. J. C. i Franklin, President and Treasurer, and the largest stockholder of E. B. Sisler and Company, the stockholders of that company have changed its name to J. C. Franklin Company and have received from the Sec-' retary of State a certificate that said change of name is authorized ' by law. Th -re is not a first baseman in the league, that shows up with Mullen camp. He's hitting the ball too. After the three games, with Mont gomery, we go to Charleston for three games, returning home for three with Charleston. Your Uncle Joe Mack is leading the teams batting average. Pitcher Schaefer's wife joined him ' here, Monday. COUNCIL VOTED TO GRANT THIRTY-TWO SALOON LICEN SES AT CHARLESTON. At the meeting of the Charleston City Council Saturday night twenty seven licenses to retail spirituous liquors were granted and five whole sale licenses, the vote on the question of the permits standing 21 for, 16 against and three absent or not voting. Grant Hall and Judge Shepherd,: of the county court, were Saturday night, heard to sav that if the city I council voted to grant the license per mits, the court would grant licenses, j when the applications come to that i body. One license was refused; this being to J. 1'. Clark, who applied j for a license to s#-ll whisky outside : of the district bounded by an ordin- [ ance |Missed by the city council in j 1006. Councilman Rav was absent when the roll was called at 9:30 o'clock but came in later. Before the per mits were presented to the council for action upon them. Mr. Stephen son moved that the council allow persons who were present to address 1 the council before the matter of the i license jiermits was taken up. Dr. i Rubins amended this motion by ^ moving that no permission be granted , as the question had been thoroughly j discussed by persons other than the | couiicilmen at a previous adjourned ^ meeting. This amendment carried 1 and the permits were than taken up. ? There was little or no argument I about the jwrmits between the wet and dry factions, the separate vote on each ]>ermit being taken with ; clock like monotony. HIGH SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT.
