It is the fondest dream of all the
farmer boys in Monongalia and ad
joining counties in this State to get
positions on the State University base
ball club when they “get big ” When !
the next map of West \ irginia is pie
pared. it should show, in addition to
the coal deposits and the oil sections,
the base ball belt, which includes sev
eral counties iu this State, and contin
ues up into Pennsylvania, embracing j
Uniontuwu and surrounding cuu-trv. j
That section has produced some crack
players, anil the l niversity t air. is a
training school for many of them.
"Jakie" Hewitt is a product of the belt,
and "Sint;h” Whaley is another. Hick
man. who is having all kinds of fun at
the exp* use of Interstate batters tnis
season, got the fever while behind a
plow and finally got a place on the W.
Y. U. team. Hickman didn’t know just
what position he was cut out for, but
something in his inter.al mechanism
kept up a continual buzzing and he
couldn’t ri'l himself of the notion that
he was a ball player. He didn t sign
with New Castle as a twirier, but his
muscle was hardened by felling tim
ber in the tall. ..ad after he di.-covered
himself, he put in his spare time prac
ticing curves and fast and slow ones.
He put in the winter at the barn down
on the farm, and with the aid of a i
Hand Book on Pitching, he developed ;
himself.
Hickman is the real thing now. lie
has speed to auction, several varieties
of twists, and an out-shoot that would
capture the first priz anywhere.
It wasn’t Hickman's fault that New
castle lost yesterday. For the most
part he made monkeys of the loeal
hitters. When they connected with the
sphere it went up into the air, or gave
the infielders easy chances. In the
third inning, jus. to show what he is
capable of. he struck out the three bat
ters who faced him. Up to the seventh
inuing only two hits had been made off
his delivery, and not a single gray uni
form got <o> far as second base.
In'the seventh inning Wheeling j
played ball, while New Castle played
marbles. It was not a good day for
the “rooters." but they were out about
a thousand strong, and they were pre- j
pared to let loose on the slightest prov
ocation. Coyle faced Hickman in the
seventh, ami when he reached first on
four wide ones, the bleachers cut the
string and let out a miscellaneous as
sortment of Comanche veils. After
that it was very much Jack Darrah.
They disturbed the peace for about ton
consecutive* rainutrs. and the “Yane
gars" suddenly contracted a bad case
or raiues.
Lyons followed Coyle. Two strikes
were called on him. but for the third he
bunted between short and third. There
w is a mix-up of black uniforms in that
locality. The hit was a slow one. and
was fielded clean, but Lyons beat it out
In a sprint race to first, while Coyle
was pedaling at a two minute clip to
ward 'ho third bag, which he reached
ir safety. It was ball playing of the
gilt edged sort, and it took away the
breath "f the Yanegans. McGinnis
tried hard to send the sphere for a
bath in “Back’* river, but he lacked
.ream, and the ball dropped into Mil
ler's basket.
Curtis next faced Hickman. While
the twirler was mixing 'em up on him.
Lyons purloined a bag. Curtis hit to
the infield and Coyle took a long lead
off third, but the ball was not fielded
to first. Claud was doing a two-step
between third and the home plate, and
' matters began to assume a dark blue
tinge. The Yanegans were closing in
on him near the bag. when Donovan
threw the ball too high and it went
out to left field. Coyle scoring. Lyons
was on third and Curtis on second.
Whaley smashed the sphere for a nice
single over second base, and both run
ners scored. Tate threw in from cen
ter field to cut off Curtis at the plate,
but it was an exceedingly bad shot, as
it allowed Smith to get around to third.
Mossett sent a high fly over the fence,
but it was inside the foul line. He
tried to make it good, but the ball fell
short, it was gathered in by Gill and
Whaley scored.
This gave Wheeling four ru s. and in
the next two innings the home club
went out in one. two. three order.
New Castle commenced slugging in
the second inning, and failed to connect
safely in bu one inning afterward.
Coyle saw that tke hits were distribut
ed'in such a way that they did not
count for runs. The base running of
the visitors was very poor.
New Castle scored tlu.1 first run in
the second. With two men out. Tate
hit against the high fence in U ft field
fi>r two bases. Donovan hit to Taylor,
who threw wild to first. Hickman
made a scratch infield hit which al
lowed Tate to score, but Donovan was
too anxious to connect also and was
caught between third and home, retir
B Nat”
tress singled, but tri£d to stretch it to
a double and was put out at second.
Russell made a two-bagger, and on
Gill's hit to centre tried to score, but
was thrown out five feet from the
plate by Curtis. The second run for
the victors was made in the fourth
inning. Miller and Ross led off with
singles but Ross and Tate were retired
on a double play. MMer was brought
la on a two-bagger by Donovan.
New Caecle bad men on bases m
everv inning but the eighth, but were
prevented from scoring by Coyles ef
fective work and. good fielding. In the
ninth, with one man out, Grafflus went
to bat in j lace of Hickman, and drew
a base on balls. N'attress went out on
a tiy to McGinnis. Fleming singled to
left! Another single would have made
the situation very ticklish, but Russell
popped up an easy foul fly to O'Brien.

Pitcher Ely. of Mansfield, appears to

pace.
The Youngstown Vindicator wants

Dayton has .signed Marty Hogan, said
to be the fastest outfielder in the
world. He started out under Torrey

sprinter. "
It is said that Rhinehart will bp re
moved from the management of the
Springfield club, and Curran will take
his place. Curran is said to he dis
satisfied with this arangement. but it
is likely that his kick is only a “bluff.”
It was a hard game for New Castle
to lose, but they may become accus

fifteen bases, and only two runs, ’.s

sprinkled, in order to prevent the dis
comfort caused by the clouds of dust.
The hoy choir will bo over, and will
occupy seats together in the grand
stand.
Either Easton or Garvey will go on
the rubber for the home club to-day,
while Jekey Hewitt will probably pitch
for New Castle. “Fans” will be satis
fied with one of the two remaining
games, but would be “tickled to death"
to get both. Mansfield took two games
out of six from the Yanegans, and
Wheeling has taken two out of four.
It was Hickman’s first defeat. He
has pitched six games, and won five
of them, and if he is in anything like
the terra ho was in yesterday, he will
keep up the same proportion through
out the season. Hickman has develop
ed wonderfully since last year, hut
New Castle will make a mistake in
allowing him to go to Washington. He
needs another season iti thp Interstate,
and the Yanegans need him Vadly.
Work has already begun on the new'
base ball park. Workmen yesterday
went at the job in a manner that
indicated the determination to have
everything in shape for the opening j
game of the next series, which occurs
May 24. with New Castle as the oppos
ing tam. The diamond will be as
level and smooth as possible to make
it. and Toledo will then have, without
questioning, the finest base hall park
in Ohio. The grand stand and
bleachers will he on the east and west
side the grand stand to face the dia
mond directly back of first lto.se—To

It was stated last night that the pitch- I
ers in the game at the Island park this
afternoon will he Lipp for New t as:! and
Garvey for Wheeling. Lipp has pitched
four games for New Castle and won all o.
them. Wheeling gave Hickman his first
defeat yesterday and should do the same
for Lipp.
Pitcher Jack BaktTTins been r. leased by

A Costly Blazs at the Big Benwood
Plant Last Night.
The Mold Shop and Foundry En
tirely Consumed by Fire—All the
Costly Patterns of the Mill
Burned—Loss Will Fwun Up Into
Thousands of Dollars— Firemen
Could be of No Service-Fire Star
ted From a Hat Casting in the
Mold Shop.
A great deal of excitement was occa
sioned in Benwood and South Wheeling
about half-past ten o'clock last night
by a fire at the big Riverside mill. The
mold shop and foundry of the plant
was entirely consumed by fire, and the
loss will run up into thousands of dol
lars.
For awhile it looked as if the whole
plant might catch fire, and this
would have been the result had it not
been for the construction of the other
buildings and the efforts of the work
men to keep the flames from spreading.
The Are originated in the mold shop,
and is supposed to have been caused by
a hot casting igniting with the wooden
molds. This building is constructed of
wood, sheathed with iron. The wood
part was soon ablaze and the iron
sheeting, being covered with several
coats of paint, also burned merrily. 1 ha
fire had gotten a good start and it was
some time before it was discovered by
some of the workmen in the othfcr de
partments of the mill. The workmen
and others who assisted could do noth
ing, however, towards putting out the
lire, and it literally burned itself out.
The mold shop and foundry are built
lip1 against the blast furnace and are
near the other parts of the mill. The
iron covering was all that saved the
rest of the plant being consumed by
me me. me num *****
very intense and the flames made quite
a brilliant light. The Eighth ward
engine and reel was sent for, but were
summoned too late to lie of any ser
vice. When they arrived the structure
was nearly gone, and they did not even
connect a hose. The lire burned out
the electric lights and left the lower
end of the town in darkness. Included
in the loss was all the various and cost
ly patterns of the Riverside plant which
were burned up in the mold shop. This
forms a principal item of the loss and
will amount to a number of thousands
of dollars. The fire burned out quickly
and did not last longer than an hour.
DAUGHTERS OF THE REVOLUTION.

Klr*t Kfegular Meeting I.H*t Evening.
The members of the Elizabeth Zane
Chapter of the Society of the Daugh

Mrs. C. W. Brockunier; the selection of
"l'atiI Revere” was spoken by Miss
Edna McCourtney: a history of Fort
Henry was read by Mrs. Andrew Wil

INNES GREAT BAND.
An extraordinary entertainment has
been prepared for the people of V' heel
ing. Innes and his world famed con
cert band has been engaged to play at
Wheeling Park, two concerts, matinee
and evening, June 1st. The mpn who
play with great concert bands like
Innes’ are a different class of musicians
from those who arc employed in divers
occupations part of the time and pick
up pin money by playing with some
military band at odd times. Concert
band musicians blow their Instruments
and do nothing else. They must lie
proficient in playing and .thoroughly
educated in music. Their union fixes
a minimum rate of wages, which is
about $0.00 a day. and they command
as much over that figure as their mer
its jutify. Some of the soloists with
Innas get as high as $130 a week, and
tho band is composed of fifty instru
mentalists and special soloists.

To tlie Editor of the Register.
Sir:—New England theology was
once classified as. Orthodoxy. Hetero
doxy and the Beecher Family. Is
Presbyterianism to have the Briggs
family substituted for the Beechers?
The last class at Centre College had a
woman. Miss Briggs, high on its roll,
in fact, second, and seventeen of eigh
teen women are enrolled as divinity
students for the next fall term.
Methodists who have wrangled for
several years over the vexed question
of “allowing” wc^nen to vote, can have
their views altered by going to hear
Presbyterian women preach!
The world moves, those are safest
who move with it. X.
