Co. M. Jubilant Over Result of
Game With Hyattsviiie Quint.
1 *
Anfl*poli< Soldier Boy* Made Credit
able Shiwiag—Phased With
T;at4psrtß*ioa Service
It would be hard to find a more
jubilant set of youths than the bas
ketball team of Company M.tbis city,
Mj4.it* friends, who returned from
Hyattsvilie last riight after defeating
the five of Company F, of that place
* by 24 to 34.
The game was desperately lought
from Ftait to finish, as the Hyatis
ville guardsmen hoped to redeem on
thsirown court the defeat in this
city two weeks ago, hut they were
outplayed at every point, and the
local lads won a most creditable vic
tory hy bstter team play Rtid individ
ual work.
The court was very small,and one of
(He most creditable things to the
Annapolis boys was the way th y met
the situation, and won under adverse
condition*. There was some rough
ness at different portions of the
vame, and there is nn douht that the
Hyattsvilie boys weie the worse
offender, but it was due to eagirnvst
to win rather than deliberateness,and
no hard feeling resulted. After the
gme the company authorities refr sh
ed the Annapolis party with sand
wiches and coffes.
Tht first score of the game was a
goal from the field by Austin, of F,
Boone evened the score shortly, and
then Annapolis forged ahead thr ugh
a goal from the foul line. IJyvUs
ville duplicated this in a few min
utes, the score being again tie. Com
pany M then ran ahead with a string
of four goals from the court, and
were never headed.
The W., B. & A. gave fim service
to the Annapolis party, giving them
a through car both ways, lht return
car being a special for the guards
men. There wire twenty-thr > in
the party, and the trip was success
ful in ev<ry way. The summary:

Finding the result of the injury,
' Surgeon McDowell has ht-e.i relieved

witnesses was before the hoard this
morning, including several natal offi
cers on duty at the Academy. Dr. J.
(’. Joyce, of Annapolis, who is the at
tending physician for young Greer,
was a witness before the hoard yes
terday afternoon, and he described in
detail the nature of the wound in the
injured man's shoulder. No other
civil witnesses have been up before
the investigators thus far.
Just what has been developed hy
the hoard as the result ol its probe is
not known, and will not he until the
repert is forwarded to the Navy I
part me nt. While the ofhei rs. as is
generally the case in a service inves

is plainly evident that they are stir

with their feelings.
Great interest is manifest here
