Then Barre A. C. Walked
Away, with xaxne by a
10 to 3' Score
Tommy Davidson Savedrthe
Game by Masterly
St. Albans made it an interesting
game lit Intercity park Saturday as far
as the sixth inning, after which Barre
A. C. won with eae by the score of
10 to 3. St. Albans got all its runs in
the third inning off J. Brown, after
which T. Davidson went to the mound
and held the visitors scoreless.
In that inning Brown passed Shappy
but threw him out at second on Dike'
rap. Pike went to second on a balk and
went to third on a wild throw by Hoernle
to catch him at second. Xeiburg wan
passed and when Hoernle threw to sec
ond to get Xeiburg stealing, Dike scored
and Xeiburg himself got second. Wood
ward hit over X. Brown's head, scoring
Xeiburg. Woodward was thrown out at
second on Larry' rap to short and Larry
then went to second and third on wild
pitches, coming home on Satchell'g safe
drive to left center.
Barre scored one in the fourth base
running by Hoernle, who made his sec
ond bit and went way to third on J.
Brown's sacrifice and home when Moore
fumbled Maiden's grounder.
Again in the sixth, Hoernle started
things, beating out a hit to short and
taking third on J. Brown's hit. Brown
started to steal second and while the
bewildered St. Albans infield was try
ing to run Brown down. Hoernle scooted
for home, drawing a throw which was
so high that Brown also completed the
circuit. Maiden was passed but died
stealing. Gay hit to left and advanced
to third while Davidson was being passed
and scored on FeduzisPs safe drive.
The Barre score was augmented by
five runs in the seventh inning that
placed the game out of danger. Wright,
the first batter up, was passed. Johns
ton laid down a neat acrifiee and scored
Wright a Dike threw wild over third
base, attempting to head him off at
third. John Brown was passed with
two out. He stole second. Maiden was
passed. Gay lammed out a double down
right field line, scoring Brown and send
ing Maiden to third. Davidson was
passed into left field, good for two bases.
Xute ended the inning by flying to
Larry, y
Johnston negotiated for a hit in the
eighth and went to second when Hoernle
grounded out to first. Johnston scored
on Larry's error of J. Brown's hit. The

bans team, was conspicuous by his ab
sence. There was little doubt in the
minds of the fans, though, that Dike,
the former Bro-wn pitcher, was in better
form to attempt to twirl against Barre
than Hatch. Hatch, in his last appear
ances in this city, seemed to be waning.
Dike left the battery in the fourth in
ning as he desired to reserve his strength
for a game Sunday, which he was to
twirl somewhere in Canada.
In the St. Albans line-up were the
faces of several former St. Albans high
school ball players. Included in this list
are Larry, Reagan, Quebec, Xeiburg, all
good ball players.
Murray, the local umpire, gave excel
lent satisfaction to both teams, al
though many were prone to question his
decision of a balk in the third inning.
Some means should be taken soon to
make necessary repairs to the infield at
Intercity park. With the exception of
the territory around third base an In
fielder can well be credited with an In
excusable error on ground balls, owing
to the wretched conditions that prevail
throughout the infield.
She Tells Circumstantially of the As
sassination of the Late Mexi
can Ruler.
Washington, D. C, July 21. Senora
Madero, widow of the slain president
of Mexico, Francisco I. Madero, jr., said
Saturday that her husband had been
murdered bnually. She backed up cir
cumstantial allegations of the way Pres
ident Madero was killed with photo
graphs of the apartment in tho Mexican
national palace, in which, according to
her story, he met his death. For this
government to recognize the Huerta ad
ministration would be atrocious, she
"Who accepts Huerta, accepts his
acts." added the widow.
"At the moment my husband met his
death, he was unclothed," Senora Ma
dero related. "These photographs show
his clothing, his hat, his shoes and all
his other apparel. Here is a photograph
of the rooms of the superintendent of
the national palace in Mexico City,
where he was held captive when he was
arrested, and on a wall hook is seen his
hat, on the floor are his shoes, and his
other clothing is in various places.
"If he waa shot when trying to escape,
in the yard or near the penitentiary
when he was being taken to prison, as
Huerta and Dias asserted, how comes it
that he did not dress himself before
"He was slain in one of the rooms of
the superintendent of the palace after
he was asleep in bed. Cardenas, then
captain, now colonel, has exhibited the
knife with which he stabbed mr husband
and the 'revolver with which he struck
him on the head when he was asleep."

First Match to Be Sailed on
Sept. .40, 1914, Off
Sandy Hook
Similar to Those of 1903, Ex
cept for Change in Rules
of Measurement
Xew York, July 21. A series of races
for the America's cup will be sailed in
eastern waters during September, 1914.
This was formally announced by the cup
committee of the Xew York Yacht club
Saturday night i
ihe Koyal Lister Yacht club of Bel
fast, acting for Sir Thomas Lipton, ca
bled the Xew York Yacht club committee
Saturday that the conditions prescribed
by the X'ew York Yacht club had been
accepted and signed and were on the
wav to America.
On the receipt of the cablegram, the
club officials announced that the tenta
tive dates for the races had been se
lected as follows: Thursday, Saturday
and Tuesday, Sept. 10, 12, and 15, and to
continue on succeeding Thursdays, Sat
urdays and iuesdaye until three out of
five races had been won by one of the
contesting yachts.
It was stated that the races would be
sailed under practically the same condi
tions mat nave governea lormer Ameri
ca's cup matches, with the exception that
they are to be held under the "present
racing rules and rule of measurement now
in force in the .New lork iacht club."
This latter clause refers to the techni
cal methods of measurement and other
details incidental to the cup race, and
not to the size of the yschts. On this
latter point the cup committee main
tained policy of extra silence. It was
said, however, that the cup defending
club was not committed to either a o
or 80-foot yacht and would not make
public announcement of its decision in
this matter until later.
Three-Year-Old Peter Johnson Trots in
s:x3 on a Heavy Track
at Pittsburg.
Pittsburg, July 21. The Xew England
trainer, Walter Cox, was the particular
shining light of the final proirram of the
grand circuit meeting at Brunot's island
track Saturday afternoon. On account
of the continued postponements caused
by ram, the class races were all declared
off, five stake races being raced, the ag
gregate value of which was $10,01X1, and
of these the teamster from Dover won
three, and was a money winner in the

but she alone failed to pay expenses, fin
ishing out of the money.
Del Rey, on account of his splendid
race at Xorth Randall last week, was
conceded to have a mortgage on the rich
Fort Pitt stake, and after he had just
breezed the first two heats it looked to
be all over but paying off to the mount
of Cox. In the third heat he was in the
lead, entering the home stretch when he
broke and did not regain his strike until
he was past the wire, Tom Murphy
easily landing Frank Bogash, Jr., winner.
Del Rey made no mistakes in the next
round and won as he pleased all the
Race Xo. 2 for Cox was the three-
vear-old trottintr stake, in which the lo
cal filly Sweet Alice was about an equal
favorite with the Cox colt In the books.
The latter was very unsteady, while Pe
ter Johnson looked like a stake trotter,
taking a record of 2:13Vi in the second
heat, a fast mile when the condition of
the track is taken into consideration.
The winner is owned by James M. Bout-
well of Barre, t., and is a candidate for
all of the rich futurities.
Manager of Fireworks Plant Was Found
Unconscious Half a Mile
Winchester, July 21. Escaping death
moat remarkably, Ernest Borolli, man
ager of the Xew England Fireworks OoT
was found unconscious Saturday half a
mile from the plant after it had been
destroyed by an explosion. . Three work
men were picked up also, and all were
at a local hospital Saturday night with
even chances of recovery
The explosion occurred in the after
noon, and shortly afterward portions of
Borolli's clothing, his eyeglass case, and
several coins he was known to have car
ried in his pockets were found scattered
about the scene of the disaster. When
found he was unconscious, his clothing
had been burned from him, and he was
near death.
What caused the accident has not been
ascertained as yet. Borolli, with several
workmen, was engaged manufacturing
rockets at the time of the explosion. . It
came without warning, and all of those
within the factory were blown up with
the destruction of the building. The
monetary loos was slight, the building
being only a small one anu of little

The Seattle "Times" and . Closed
Saloons Get Temporary
Seattle, Wash., July 21. Mayor
Ceorge F. Cotterill enlargrxl the city's
police force Saturday night'by swearing
in half of Seattle's firemen'as special of
ficers and is endeavoring to prevent a
repetition of last night s riots, when
sailors from United States warships led
mobs of their comrades and citizens
against Socialists and Industrial Work
ers of the World.
A provost guard from the Pacific fleet,
whih is here for the festivities of the
Irolden Potlatch, is also assisting the
police in keeping order. The guard was
called out last night after the rioting
sailors and marines had helped to at
tack the Socialists' county headquarters,
one of their halls and two hall used
by fthe I. W. W., from which furniture
and books were thrown into the street
and burned.
Mayor Cotterill failed in his attempt
of this afternoon to close all saloons
for the balance of the day and to sup
press the Saturday and Sunday editions
of the Seattle Times, which, he charged,
published an article which caused last
night's rioting.
He was thwarted in both instances
through temporary injunctions issued by
Judge Humphries of the superior court.
The injunctions were made returnable
next Wednesday, three days after the
fleet leaves the harbor.
The mayor held that the Times in
printing an alleged distorted account of
a speech made by .Secretary Daniels of
the navy before the Rainier club on
lhursday night had incited a riot, lie
heard the secretarys speech himself.
After conferrinc with Secretary Daniels
and Gov. Emet Lister, Cottrill decided
to take action to prevent the further
publication of inflammatory articles.
The times in its afternoon edition,
which was held up until after 3 o'clock,
described the riots as an "attack by the
Col. A. J. Blethen, editor and propri
etor of the Times, said that if necessary
he would apply for a federal injunction
Monday to keep the mayor from inter
fering with his publication.
No Intention, as Reported, of Cleaning
Out the New Haven
Xew York, July 21. Theodore X. Vail,
president of the American Telephone 4
Telegraph company, denied as absurd a
published story that the new president
of the X'ew Haven railroad, whoever he
may be, will get orders to clear out all
the subordinate officers who have been
lieutenants of Mr. Mellen.
'"It woul be the most foolish and de
structive policy we could adopt," said
Mr. Vail. "Our object rather will' be
to retain as many of the officers as pos
sible and do our constructive work
through them."
Mr. Vail with J. Ficrpont Morgan are
regarded as the two leaders of the com
mittee of the .Npw Haven directors which
is to select the new president. The
American Telephone &- Telegraph com
pany is one of the chief interests of the
Morgan firm. Ihe late Mr. Morgan re
garded Mr. Vail as the greatest construc
tive big business man of the country.'
Mr. ail made it clear Saturday that
the nominating committee has no man in
mind for Mr. Mellen's position and will
not have until it meets next week on
Tuesday at the Xew Haven offices here.
They Refuse To Return Under Old Con
Boston, July 21. Strikers at two
ITyde Park manufacturing plants con
trolled by Gov. Foss voted unanimously
at a ma.s meeting Saturday to refuse
a proposition for settlement contained
in the report of Ixiuis r. Post, acting
United States secretary of labor, who
went to Boston from Washington in an
attempt to end this strike. The only
offer which the governor would make to
his workmen, Mr. Post reported, was
that they return to the factories under
the conditions which existed when they
