A Hot Ball Game. j
One of the hottest base-ball games
of the season, was the one which took v
place at Westchester yesterday after- s
noon between the teams of Westches- v
ter and New England. The playing (i
of everyone was excellent, there being j.
only eight errors in the whole game.
The bad condition of the ground was a
the cause of so many runs being t
made. The playing of Francis Wells, s
Will Ridgley and fcecil Davis, three
Fairmont boys, was the feature of the j
game. It might be said that their a
playing was the whole game for West- c
Chester.

SHOOTING
' AFFRAY
AT EVERSON TOOK PLACE LAST
NIGHT-?OFFICERS ARE ON
THE HUNT OF THE PARTICIPANTS.
As the result of a drunken brawl
at Everson last night about 7:30
o'clock, two men were shot more or
less seriously.
Three Americans had an eight-gallon
keg of beer at "Brother" (M. C.)
Davis* house, and while the beer was
being disposed of, four Italians came
along, and were invited.to neip. wnen
the keg was emptied, some one proposed
taking up a collection to procure
another.
This the white men agreed to, but
the foreigners refused. Davis and
Aaron Thorn became very much incensed
at this and Davis hit one of
the men. This started the battle. One
Italian ran out of the house and up a
bank, pulled a revolver and opened
fire. Thorn was shot through the
hand and head. The ball entered just
above the right ear, plowed along the
scalp and came out the hack of his
head. Davis was shot through the
left arm, the ball breaking the bone.
Dr. Alkire, who dressed the wounds,
says that neither of the men are dangerously
hurt.
As soon as the shooting was done,
the Italians ran in the direction of
Monongah. One of the four was captured
immediately after the light, but
it was proven he did not shoot. The
others have not been captured yet
but officers all along the river are
looking for them. They will unundoubtedly
be caught.
