DENIES SUGAR "INFLUENCE" Senator Newlands "Amazed" at the Mention of Name IN OXNARD CORRESPONDENCE fstpne Explains Dispatches Carried by the Associ ated Press Washington, Juno 20 Every public man whose name wai familiarly bandied about by the sugar protectionists in their written discussions on bow to get the ''right kind'' of men on House and Senate committees may be subprnaed before the Senate lobby investigating committee, Chairman . Overman stated yesterday. In the letters seized in the office of the United States Beet Sugar producers and read in the record, Sena tor Reed, one of the committeemen, said yesterday he saw evidence of a gigantic effort to control legislation and sway public opinion. When the committee convened yester day the first step in investigation of facts cited in the letters was begun. Melville E. Stone, general manager of the Associated Press, took the stand again on his own request to explain references to publicity given through his news organization to the sugar men. If the committee calls all tlie men whose names were mentioned in the cor resDondenc. an extension of time for hearings must be asked of the Senate, Anion? those named in the letters as having been the object of solicitude or interest by the sugar protectionists were ex-President Taft, William Locb, for mer secretary to President Roosevelt; Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, ex-chief chemist; Senator Newlands' of Nevada, former Hood's Bast family physic I)o not gripe or cause pain.

Clarence Edwards, formerly chief of the insular bureau; Representative Mondell of Wyoming and ex-Representative Picked of Iowa. In addition to these men, Senator Cummins wants to call representative of the "big boiler plate" news agencies, who printed "news'' for the beet sugar interests for $2,SI)t) a nmtitli. A subixrna will probably be issued for Robert S. Lovett, head of the Union Pa' cillc railroad, who on Tuesday gave out nn interview saying he had been ap proached by "lobbyists'' seeking jobs in Washington. The subpoena will be is sued as soon as the resolution direct ing that Lovett be called, which was introduced by Senator Norris of Xe braska, reaches the committee. Senator Newlands of Nevada, inter rupted the committee's program by ap pearing at the opening of the session vestenhiv and requesting that he be per mitted to testify. He said he "observed with amazement" the mention of his name in the Oxnard correspondence and denied that the sugar magnate had in any way influenced his views on the Philippines. "My application to go on the Philip pine committee was not suggested by Mr. Oxnard," Newlands asserted. "1 hud Wen in the Philippines with the Taft party in 190(1 mid on mv return expressed my views in full. I urged that we adopt a policy at an early date which would enable us to withdraw from the Philippines and that it would be un wise to tic ourselves more closely to the islands by reciprocal or other trade re lations. "In this sugar contention," Newlands continued, "the refiners, including the sugar trust, the Spreckels and the Ar bnekle are on one side and the beet sugar factories are on the other. I con demn the methods and practices of both as disclosed by the evidence, of which I had but little realization until reeetitly, but I still insist that the foreign in dustry of beet growing is to be classed among' the legitimate industries which the Democratic party has promised in its platform not to injure and destroy." Goddard Was Defeated by Montpelier High School, 5 to 4 TRIPLE PLAY FEATURE OF THE GAME Pitcher Ford Was Largely Responsible for the Loss of His Game Birdie Cree, the star outfielder of the Highlanders, lias suffered a severe slump in his batting this season. Formerly, Cree was looked on as one of the best swatters in the league, but this season since all the Highlanders' games have been staged on the Polo grounds, Oee has not been judging balls with his for mer keenness. He blames this slump to the sun garden on the Brush stadium, which he claims interferes so with his eyesight that when he comes in to bat he can hardly see the ball when it Is pitched. A similar fate happened to Josh Devore of the Giant. Devore, since a change of berth, is making good. Saturday. June 21 CARRE A. C. HARDWICK GAME CALLED AT 3.00 Admission Gents, 25c. La dies, 10c. Don't forget the place INTER-CITY PARK A desperate batting rally by Goddard seminary in the ninth inning of the third of' the Montpelier high school-God-dard baseball series at Intercity P'''k yesterday was of no avail, their spurt being curbed with one run wanting to bring the affair to even terms. Mont pelier won by a scor6 of 5 to 4. The feature of the game whs a triple play executed by the (ioddard infield in the eighth inning, when the sacks were crammed. The play staved off many possible runs, being engineered by Witt, Bishop, Merrill and ICasse. This play is one of the very few that have been reconled in baseball in Barre and the sole play of similar nature to be erpetrated in preparatory school ball if 'ermont this season. In the eighth in ning. after Montpelier had made one run F. Laird occupied third base, Hayden second and J. Laird first. Hancock rapped a short grounder to Witt. By fast fielding. Witt forced rred Jairrt at home and Bishop relayed the ball to first ahead of Hancock. L. ljsird was attempting to make third from first. Merrill pegged the ball across to La Casse at third, putting J. Laird out on a close play. This was" not the only fielding contri bution of the game. Two other double plays were engineered by the fast (iod dard infield. The individual playing of Farrell, Goddard's second baseman, was more conspicuous than that of any other player on the field. Farrell made three beautiful running one-handed stops of wicked grounders and recovered himself on each occasion with ample time to get his man at the first station. The playing of the (.oddard team at times was indifferent and ragged. In the fourth inning a balk by Pitcher Ford, which waa entirely uncalled for, handed Montpelier one run. Two drives in the sixth inning, tagged for sure outs, were misjudged by Feeley anil Tierney, result ing in another score. J, Laird, the Montpelier pitcher, had the Capital City team under his charge and never pitched a better game in Jus career at Montpelier high school. Laird held Goddard to six hits and was a stumbling block at critical moments. "Rnss"' Ford, the Goddard southpaw, was not in good form yesterday. He lacked speed and was rather wild during the latter stages or the game. In the eighth inning his wildness resulted in forcing In one run. Montpelier Scored at Start. Montpelier opened the scoring in the first inning. Smith was passed and stole second From third he tallied when Feeley dropped Bartlctt's fly. Goddard went into the lead in the next session. Witt singled, drawing up at second base when Hayden let the ball roll by him. Witt was sacrificed to third by Mer rill. Tierney was passed and took sec ond when Cosby went out to first. A single by Bishop scored Witt and Tier ney. Bishop was out trying to steal second. Montpelier manufactured two more run In the fourth mid took the lead not to he overcome. Laird wa safe on Merrill's error. Burtlett singled. Hayden singled and H. Jird mired. lUrtlett itiiidc. Jhird , on the play. A hulk hy Ford permitted Barth'tt to am ble home, in the ki.th inning, Feeley misjudged a drive by F. !ird, the hit going for two base.' With two out, Tierney likewise misjudged a fly from .1. laird's bat. F. 1-aird scored on the hit. In the eighth, Montpelier tallied its final run. Burtlett and F. LHird were passed in succession. Hnvilen, try ing to sacrifice, drew Merrill oft first and beat the bunt to first base. J. Laird was ticketed. Hartlett walking home. At this stage a triple play aided the seminary team, to considerable extent. (rocldurd started a grand ninth inning batting rally. IiCasse, first man up, singled. Feeley hit to Smith, who threw LaCawHC out at second. Witt pasted the pill over right center fence into the river, scoring Feeley ahead of him. Mer rill was passed nnd reached third on two wild pitches. Cosby was passed.

The atmospheric condition vesterdav interfered to a great extent with the plaring ot both teams. It was no dark at times that the ball was barely dis tinguishable in the air. That home run by Witt was a sc.resch- er. Had La'jtaee got the signal when Teeley was at the bat two of the sacks might have been occupied, which would have tied the score when Witt pounded out his jour-ply hit. Feeley was unable to go bohind the bat yesterday because of a. badly lacer ated finger on hi throwing hand, which he received at Graniteville a few nights back. Bishop was summoned to do the mr'L'afrtn u-nrL" anil n.tmiit luimttalf grandly. Nevertheless, the nonappcar- (S a nee ot feeley as catcher had a. de moralizing cfTect on the playing of the seminary aggregation. SPORTING NOTES Johnny Evers, manager of the Cubs, who is a pretty keen critic on baseball, says that Joe Tinker of the Reds got the better of the big deal pulled off be tween Tinker o' the Redland outfit and McGraw of the Giants. He says that From me and Ames were about event v matched nnd as a result of the dea!, (Jroh and Devore were simply handed away. At last we have found one person of note, who cannot look upon J. K. Haker of the Athletics as a star third saeker. Clark Grimth of the Senators has watched him considerably and savs he don't see where Haker has the qualifica tions tor the ranking he has. Miller Hiiggins of the Cards has by no means seen his best ball days. He is at present leading the National league AMERICAN LEAGUE Results of Yesterday'! Games. At Boston - Boston f, Detroit 4.

George McQuillan, the former Phil adelphia National pitcher, i doing great work in the American association this season. His work is of such a grade that he is expected soon to join the Pittsburg Pirates. New Haven of the Kastem association was successful in landing Crowther, the star Brown athlete. Crowther is a base ball player of exceptional abil-ity. Crow ther is a shortstop but will have great difficulty in ousting Joe Tepe from his berth with the New Haven team, as he is considered one of the best shortstops in the country. James O'Brien of Cambridge, Mass., has been elected captain of baneball at Holy Cross college for next season. He has played for thre years on Holy Crose, preparing for college at Ring Manual Training school. The New York Giants were obliged to turn over $10.IHM) of cold cash to the Superior team of the Northern league for "Rube" Sc.hauer, their sensational pitcher. This is Schauer's first year playing in organized baseball, but he lias great prospects. He waa picked out by Dick Kinsella, the Giant acout. Sehauer has pitohed three one-hit games this season, and also leads the league in stnike-outs. One of the great faults with the Cin cinnati Reds this season is tbat the hit ters are falling down lamentably in pinches. Joe Tinker say that he never saw such a bunch of poor hitters.
