Annapolitans Quickly Grasp Idea
Of Discipline And Eager
To Be Soldiers
EDGEWOOD, MD., July 31 (Spe
cial.) —Just one week in camp and
thc boys of Company "M," look like
seasoned veterans of the military
game, tauned, snappy and ever ready :
to do. They have quickly grasped the
idea *of discipline, and because of
their willingness and eagerness to
learn the business of Uncle Sam’s
Army they have become something of
favorites about the camp. Even the
boys of the Fifth Regiment know
there is plenty of "pep" In that Com
pany "M” from Annapolis.
The boys hear tliat well known old
tune of "Can’t get ’em up in the morn
ing” every year at 5:15 a. m. From
that time until noon they work. Work
is the proper word to use instead of
drill, as Company "M" is composed
of machine gunners. In the after
noon until 3:30 the boys engage In
various athletic games. Company
“M's" baseball team has been elimi
nated in the race for * regimental
championship, but their volley ball
team is at the top of the list and will
represent the regiment in the brigade
championship series which starts to
day, playing the first game with the
10th Medical Regiment. The boys are
confident of bringing tack the silver
loving cup which is the' prize for the
winner. For practice they played and
defeated the Officers of the Third Bat
talion yesterday afternoon. This
week will be the busy week. Gen
eral Pershing and other officers of the
General Staff will visit the camp on
Wednesday. Thursday is Governor’s
day, and that promises to be thc day
of demonstrations and ceremonies.
The boys say the “chow” is good,
and that everybody is well and happy.
They are all sorry that there is but
one week of camp left. They are go
ing after recruits when they return,
because it is a pleasure to belong to
an organization like Company "M."

BELFAST, July 31. —Harry Boland,
formerly representative of the Dail
Eireann in the United States, is in a
critical condition at a hospital in Dub
lin as a result of wounds received in
attempting to evade capture by na

rest at Skerrios early this morning,
Boland drew a revolver and during
thc scuffle that followed, the message
said, he was shot in the abdomen.
Jury Framing
Report Of Belle
Grove Inn Fight
What will porhaps be the last chap
ter in the tragedy of Belle Grove, a
roadside house in upper Anne Arun
del county, where ope man was killed
and several other men and women
were injured in a pistol fight and gen
eral brawl in the early hours of Sun
day morning. July 16. is being writ
ten this afternoon as the jury of
inquest w T as reconvened to frame
a final report and verdict resulting
from its investigations. v
The jury of inquest, of which Police
Justice William S. Welch, of Annapo
lis is coroner, was called to meet
again at 4 o’clock this afternoon, by
State’s Attorney James M. Munroe.
This jury, together with an investi
gation conducted by Police Commis
sioner Charles D. Gaither, of Balti
more city, conducted an exhaustive in
quiry, during which nearly half a
hundred witnesses were examined
None, however, was able to throw any
light on the identity of any of the
principals, alleged to be members of
rival gangs who "shot up” the inn.
In the melee that followed, bottles
and other missiles were thrown about.
Michael Cadora was the man shot to
death, others were wounded less seri- 1
cusly by bullets, and still others sus- j
tained injuries from bottles that were
hurled into the crowd. While some
of the witnesses admitted they had
visited the inn for a "good time” on
i several occasions, all professed they 1
do not know any of’the gunmen. It
appears therefore, that solution of the 1
affair, will remain a mystery.

strumental in establishing the town
ship 30 years ago. Following the
election, a dance was held in the
Community Hall.
Elections at Arundel in former
years excited more than ordinary in

the only place in the State where
women had the right of suffrage, and
those of the sex exercised the pre
rogative with no little pride.

detail. It will be known as “Weiss’s
Garage,” and with entrances from two

Residents Of West River Pay
Honor To Vernon Wayson
Who Fell In France
Residents of the West River section
of the county gathered in the Method
ist Episcopal church there yesterday
and paid honor to the memory of Ver
non Jerome Wayson, martyr of the
World War, who lost his life in the
battle of the Argonne sector. The
services, which were impressive, were
featured by a eulogy by Benjamin
Mlchaelson, of Galesvillc, and a brief
address was also delivered*by Rev.
Robert A. Mayo, and Rev. Gordon G.
Jones, of Galesville.
The address of Mr. Miehaelson, ex
tolling the life of the departed hero
and the loss that is felt in the com
munity, follows;
"We have assembled here this even
ing to commemorate the death of a
fallen hero. History has recorded the
deeds of heroes more illustrious, the
praises of men of greater renown
have been sung, but none, whether
preacher or poet, soldier or states
man, more justly deserves to be pro
perly esteemed or lauded by his fel
low countrymen than does he whose
memory we honor here tonight.
“More than five years ago, when the
principles of free government were
hanging in the balance, and autocracy
and militarism threatened to domi
nate the world, the United States en
tered the World War to save human
ity from a misguided foe. Among the
youth of America who so nobly and
patriotically answered their country’s
call in that hour of need, there went
forth from this village a typical Ameri

“Twilight Baseball League" Had
Auspicious Opening In Contest
At St. John's College Saturday
—Antlered Herd Registered li
to 7 Score
, \
With a fair gallery of spectntura.
many of them members of the fami
lies anil frlemlß of opposing players,
the recently organised Twilight
Itaseball League of Annapolis, got
away to a rather auspicious start Sat
urday afternoon when lodge men of
the Elks and Odd Fellows, keen rivala
of the diamond, clashod. The gamo
was played on the grounds of Ht.
John's College and when the smoko
of battle, lifted, the Antlered tribe
were returned victors by a score of
11 to 7.
Angara Well For Hacoest 1
The game was well played, much
enthusiasm was shown, and, in fact,
everything augured well for the suc
cess of this brand new venture in the
great National game in Annapolis, for
the remainder of the summer season.
As previously stated in The Capital,
the contending teams necessarily will
havo certain incidental expenses, and
to meet these, a collection will be
taken in course of the games, and one
may give whatever he or she, sees ht.
There is no fixed admission price. A
gratifying sum was realised from Sat
urday’s contest, and as attendance
undoubtedly will increaso with each
succeeding game, now that the League
has launched upon the ramps+gn, ft
is expected of course, that better re
sults will be attained. Proceeds will
be devoted entirely to equipment, such
as baseballs, bats, and other para
phernalia and incidentals, and hi the
event there is a surplus when the sea
son closes, it will be turned into a
fund for a more extensive season next
year, or perhaps turned over to some
charitable purpose.
Elks Won On Merits
The Elks won Saturday’s battle, de
servedly. Huff pitched a good game
for the winners, and was given good
support by his teammatos, especially
in tight places. Then too, the Elks
batted the sphere harder and more
timely. The game was not without
one feature play that bordered on the
sensational. This was when Howard
Thompson, first sacker of the Elks,
> leaped into the air, and pulled down
a hot line drive by Colburn. The hit
would surely have gone for a homer.
Thompson said afterwards that he
really did not know that he had pull
f ed the pellet out of the air. Sweeney,
the Odd Fellows hurler, had the bet
ter of Huff in the matter of strike
outs. He had 9 to his credit, against
■ 6 by Huff, but as before stated tfie
► latter was stronger in the pinches,
i John Taylor, who played in the right
garden for the Elks, is feeling a bit
chesty because he poled out a clean
single. The umpires of the game were
Messrs. Fisher and Hantske.
Second Game Today
The Becond game of the League se
ries will be staged on the College dia
mond this afternoon, beginning at 6
* o’clock. The contending teams will
| bo members of the order of Moose,
and the Marines attached to duty at
the Naval Academy. The latter have
1i an especially Btrong outfit, and the
