Stunts and It Takes 11
Innings to Win
In a thrilling diamond battle at
Roaring Brook Park yesterday, Bar
ton forced the invincible uebec Roy
al Giants to go cleven innings beforc
acknowledging defeat. Out of 70
games which the coloreu players
lrom Canada have played in, but fivc
have beendefeats. esierdaysvictoiy
over Barton was the 33d consecutive
scalp which the Giants have annex
ed. Yet if the veteran Barton short
stop had not been guilty of a pair of
uniortunatc miscues iti the 8th stan
za, the ebony skinned whirlwinds
would have been turned back with a
6 to 4 defeat.
The visiti ng aggregation under-cs-timated
the strength of the Barton
nine and for several frames indulgerò
in vaudeville stunts and amuscd the
huge crowd of fans with clever re
partee. But in the third, Barton
batted completcly around and tallied
a half dozen times, using to the best
of advantage two extra base drivi-s,
a couple of singles and three pilfered
sacks. Kid Heath was' safe at first
on an error and then stole sccond.
Snyder selectcd one of Carter's fast
pitches which he cloutcd for a doublé.
Heath crosscd the rubber and Berney
Lee scorerò Snyder with a clean single
Teck Barrows hit safel" and Ted Lec
fOashcd out a long triple to right.
Both the lattei' and Pubois scored
on Beor's fly to loft. Barton main
tained this lead of six counters until
the eighth, when the visitors managed
to cross the rubber twice, the way
being paved for them bv Kid Heath's
two unfortunate bobbles.
Sanger, who formerly twirled for
Fitcliburg in the New England
Jeague toed the mound for Barton
and kept the hits wcll scattererò. He
pitched steadier ball than did Carter
of the Quebes Giants and had he
been accorded perfect support he
would have emerered from the hard
fought tussle a victor. In the tenth
Emory was sent into the box and
hcld the Barton nine to a single
bingle in two innings while his team
mates amassed a quartet of runs.
Bowdon, backstop for the Giants,
displayed a peculiar tendency to get
ting hit by the opposing "itcher. He
wa.s awarded first base on three oc
casions after twirler Sanger had hit

RICHFORD 10 TO 4
Fairbrother Proves Puzzle
to Visiting Team In
Exciting Contést
Ncwport's f.tst Sunset Leaguc
again carne through to a victory yes
terday when they bested Richford by
nine inning contest on Gaines Trot
ting Park. The game was calice! at
3.10 p. m., with a fair-sized crowd in
the stands, and it was a "hum-dinger"
of a contest in every way. The play
in the field brought forth but few er
rors, and three doublé rdays were
made, two by Richford and one by
Newport, while at the bat, Ncwport
casilv led their opponents and used
up two pitchers.
The visitors failed to solve Fair
brother and even the )assionate
cheeiing and coaching of Coach Pond
on first base could not rattle him.
Newport had a new player on sec
ond, Monili, who banged out three
hits out of four times at bat, and hit
a liner into a doublé play the first
time up. His hitting brought in
three runs, and his ficlding was very
satisfactory. McCarten of Newport
was also a strong addition to the
team, since he batted for 1,000 and
fielded his position clcvcrly at first
base.
Harvey, Richford's leading mounds
man, sought to terrify the batsmen
vvjth a red necktie and a Kelley green
sweater, but his left handed groovers
were exactly to the liking of many
batsmen and in the fifth, James, a
younger man, replaced him, and he 1

Henry J. Fuller Addrcsses a
Large Audience at K. P.
Hall Thursday Night
Members of the Commercial Club
and their guests to the number of 150
mot in Pythian hall Thursday evening
and listened to a most informing ad
dress upon South America by Henry
J. Fuller of New York, prcsident of
E. & T. Fairbanks & Co. Mr. Fuller
was most cordially greeted by ali and
beforc the meeting closed was made
an honorary member of the organiza
tion. In the absencc of the prcsident, Ed
gar R. Brown, Vicc-President Hizen
jiiesided and at the Urici' Uusiness
session these members were elected:
H. W. Cary, Fred L. Follensby, Rcv.
Dr. A. P. Glint, Fred G. Johnson and
Charles B. Rathbun.
Mr. Hazen presented Mr. Fuller in
a most felicitions manner and the
latter said it was always a pleasure
to come back to St. Johnsbury, and
that he regrctted that his short
stops here on business did not per
mit of the social visits that he always
enjoyed. He then spoke for an hour
in an informai and most entertaining
miiiner ot a trip to South America
which he took in February, l'J19. The
Panama canal was the- boat's first
stop, and Mr. Fuller said in passing
that this was the one example of gov
ernment efficienev in the country.The
first South American country he vi
sitaci was Perù where it rained only
once in fure or six years and where
the machine shop he visited was right
outdoors and the machines ali in
good order. At Callao he saw two car
loads of Fairbanks scalcs and also
witnessed a revolution and a changc
of government.
The leading bankers and progres
sive farmers of the country were Ita
lians or of Italian ancestrj the Spa
niards being too orpud to work. The
business in ali the South American
cities was conducted bv the Italians,
tlte English, the Germans and some
times by the Americnns. At Valpa
raiso in Chile Mr. Fuller described
tlie disadvantages of foreign ex
change and said that until rccently
Chile had been receiving nearly
?2(M),000,000 in export duties of their
valuable nitrates. This country pos
sesses two of the largest coppcr
niines in the world, the Cerra de Pas
co and the Braden jnines, and Mr.
Fuller described his visit to the latter
mines where Farbanks scales were
usrd and 12.000 men were employed.
He said the trip across the Andcz
was dissapointing and inferior to the
Canadian Rockies or those of the
United States, butt hat the ride
across the Argentina pampas to Beu
nos Aires was awonderful trip. To his
great sui-prise husked corn was used
as fuel ali alon the railroad as it was
impossble to get coal for fuel. Buenos
