THE BARRE DAILY TIMES, BARRE, VT., MONDAY, JULY 28, 1913.
2 B.A.G. BATS HAD 15 HITS IN 'EM Local Team Gave Two Pit chers a Hard Founding at Intercity Park. DUDLEY TEAM LOST BY SCORE OF 12 TO 4 Davidson Sailed Along Easi ly and Kept Hits Well Scattered Adieu, Phineas P. Dudley! Would that Saturday be your last sojourn in Barre. Acting in accordance with tilie past this person Dudley assembled a group of alleged stars at Intercity park end met defeat by the meagre score of 12 to 4. Fortune smiled favorably on the Dudley crew that figures of the Barre team did not roll larger. After , a campaign of publicity for some time past, heralding Dudley's Athletics as a coming band or world beaters, with a sprinkling of promising major league tal entT the sporting goods man and pro moter of alleged baseball games, breezed into our little hamlet minus two of his etellar representatives, "Rube" Oram, the Brown pitcher, and "Pink" Winckler, the Vermont man, w'ho, according to the widespread allusions, were to be included in the personnel of the Dudley boys. For three or four seasons Barre fan dom has witnessed these agonising eon tests with Dudley in one of the leading roles ball teams that Barnum would have blushed had he coralled. Owing to failure to have Cram, the sensational Brown pitdher, Dudley guided Tuck, a Dartmouth freshman twirlor, to the mound. After two batter had been re tired, the Barre team stole this reputed pitcher's prayer book. Then they swooped upon him and garnered three counters. Acting with good judgment, Dudley der ricked Tuck, offering Mm a change of environment by transferring him to right field. The effect of the change was noticeable. "WSllie" Washburn as sumed responsibilities for Dudley. Washburn was a mere child against the Barre swatsmen, receiving an un merciful pounding. The only available pitcher in the Dudley rangers was Vail, who occupied third base, ail was called upon, but foremost in hi mind was the trimming he received from Barre a. few weeks ago. After a grave and deliberate consultation between Dudley and Vail during the rounds immediately follow ing the retirement of Tuck, Vail posi tively refused to be humiliated by the local fence busters, who were banging the pill like leaguers. Washburn re mained at his post through the re mainder of the game. Only thirteen hits were made off him. During the lat ter part, in order to bring the agony to an end, the locals went out in order along well-founded linen. Tommy Da vidson, the Valiant little Athletic pitch er, did not even dampen his sweat shirt. Realizing his position, he ' took things as a matter of course. Eight scattered hits were gathered off his delivery. The best playing by the visitors was by "Brave" Fowlie, "the St. Michael's catcher, who was drafted into service at an eleventh how's notice by Dudley. 'He Bhowed up to great advantage behind the bat, but his efforts to steady the Hanover pitchers proved futile. Brave's - REST AND HEALTH TO MOTHER AND CHILD. Mas.

Note of the Game. It would take some team to down Barre at the pace they are now travel ling. , ; Should the sporting public of Barre ever permit Dudley to return to Barre, it would be well to have some means of insuring a good ball game. On but one occasion has Dudley brought a mediocre team here; on other occasions he has banded together players whose ability would hinder them from qualifying for high school bull. . Jackie Davidson lent a tone of strength and stability to the infield of the Ath letics. He covered second in admirable style. At the bat his cleaving should have resulted in four clean ihiits, but slow base running by J. Brown, acting under orders from the bench, who was forced, at second on a ball driven be tween right and center, deprived hira of a hit. Only thirteen errors chalked up against the lianover team. Something rare, for "Bill" Johnston to be credited with two errors. The "old reliable" had his off day and tumbled on two occasions. The best hitting of the day was done by J. Davidson and Johnston, each con necting for three hits. Nute, Hoemle and J. Brown each knocked out two. Fast-Going Colt Expected. A colt of which much is expected in the way of speed was foaled last week by Miss Axel and has been named Lam bert Axel, the sire having been Young Dandy Lambert. The colt's mobher was a fast mare and of fast breed, being by Axel with Axtel as sire, the latter be ing three-year-old champion of the world with a record of 2:12.

C. at Berlin Street Grounds POOR EXHIBITION . BY THE VISITORS Beaton Pitched for Locals and Was Never in Danger Two hundred, fans and a band were afforded a dismal afternoon at the Ber lin street park Saturday afternoon when the Italian Athletics entertained as their guests on the diamond between 3 and 5 an aggregation of players styled on the posters "Hardwick A. C." Let it be said here that it wasn't tihe Hard wick team of old, the team that used to wage close battles with the best that Barre fforded. The game, fortunately the term da an arbitrary one, had an 11 to 4 issue in favor of the locals. It was simply a round of disappointments, for everybody came expecting to see a repe tition or at least something like a re petition of the diamond events in which Barre and Hardwick teams formerly fig ured. (). baseball what crimes are com mitted in tihy name! Dannie Beaton commanded the artil lery works of the locals and he didn't have to exert himself greatly to fan an even dozen of the Caledonian. Opposed to the East Barre favorite was Hitch cock, who had a uniform labelled "Hard- wu-k Reserves' and little else. Hitch cock started to do some mowing, but he failed to twirl consistently when that kind of pitching counted. Evidently the visitors wad scoured every highway and hedge in Hardwick and environs, in their vain endeavor to get together a team that could cope with the strong I. A. C. Rumor had it that the line-up, as finally completed, was one part Hardwick gram mar school, one part Hardwick W3nd Jam- mers, a sprinKimg oi me vinage ueavy Hitters, a dash, and a faint dash at that, of the old Hardwick town team and a representation from the Grange team. For the locals. Clari and Williams con tributed most of the heavy hitting. The infield played with some of its old-time vigor and occasionally the combination pulled off something that threatened for moment only to enliven the contest. Bottigi, as usual, figured an a hair-rais ing clutch in left, while the other fielders hal little to do all aitemoon. Ap parently Lyons and Jacques were the only men of unquestioned calibre in the Hardwick line-up and even the former played lis a schoolboy at times..

MUDDLE GROWS WORSE Open Threats to Impeach Sulzer, Who Wants Mur phy Indicted 'CHAOS," SAYS WILLIAM BARNES Declares State Government is a Laughing Stock and Farce New York, July 28. Thfr dispute be tween Gov. Sulzer and Charles F. Mur phy reached a crisis Saturday. The im peachment of the governor is threatened openly. The governor replies that Mur phy is to blame for everything. The condition of chaos is unique in the his tory of this state. The Frawley legislative committed, which has been investigating the con duct of the governor before and after he entered office, promises to bring forward itroof that the coventor received and spent campaign contributions which be did not reKrt to the secretary of state in his official return of campaign expenditures. If the committee cstab lishes its case, the trovernor will 1 found euiltv of a criminal offence and his impeachment will follow. Mr. Sulzer in an interview says that the whole trouble with the state admin intra t ion is Charles F. Murphy. Mr. Sulzer, it appears also, tried to induce District Attorney Whitman to cause the indictment of Mr. Murphy on the charge of conspiracy, or ' for anything else, which the governor is quoted as saying. W illiam Barnes, chairman of the Re publican state committee, at this mo ment an acute but disinterested specta tor, told The Sun yesterday that the entire administration of the state is de moralized; that there has been riotous appropriation of state money with no results; that the government oi the state is paralyzed and has become a laughing stock of the nation. Mr. Barnes laid the chaotic condition to the factional fight between Sulzer and Mur phy for the control of the Democratic party in this state. Gov. Sulzer, who was described on Fri day by Lieut. -Gov. Martin H. Glynn as the prince of liars, replied Saturday through his secretary that Mr. Glynn was the chief of "ego-maniacs" and that the lieHtenant-governor's interest in impeachment plans was clearly owing to his desire to succeed to the governor ship, which he would do hi the event of .Mr. Sulzer's ouster.

WILSON TALKS OF MEXICO Embassador Continues His Activities as Talking Diplomat TARIFF MAKES GOOD PROGRESS Tho Chemical Schedule Goes Through. All Amend ments Voted Down. Washington, July 28. As a talking diplomat Embassador Henry Lane Wil son continued his activities Friday in Washington. H,is interview in Xew York Friday was amazing to the corps. He denied much that was accredited to hira there but Saturday he discussed Mexican affairs here freely and alto gether volubly. He even criticised the president for sending William jiayara Hale to Mexico to study the situation, although the president has denied that Mr. Hale went there as his special rep resentative. And it came as a surprise Saturday that Secretary Bryan has ap parently had a Spanish-speaking rep resentative in Mexico for some weeks, lteirinald F. Del Valle of Los Angeles. In former times such diplomstic frankness would have been sternly frowned upon at the White House. Of course F.mbaasador Wilson has been at1 tacked, as he believes very unjustly, and wishes vindication. He was sent to Mexico by another administration and has long been anxious to relinquish his post. He has been through very trying times, is credited with liavim? carried himself superbly and accordingly oecu pics a very independent position. His talk with president Wilson today and other conferences are expected to clear up the Mexican situation materially The embassador says he expects to re turn to Mexico next week. His tslk with Secretary Bryan Satur day morning was cut short because the secretary had to appear before the for eign relations committee of the Senate, anent the penning Xicaraguan treaty. At this bearing there was some discus sion of Mexico. . There seems to be no disposition to change this existing law with regard to shipment of arms into Mexico. I he House Saturday was in . session but four minutes. The Senate worked through the afternoon and completed tlte chemical schedule. This makes for progress, although it is to be remem jered the tariff bill schedules run from the income tax provisions and adminis trative features. Any of these are like- to provoke long discussion. There continues to be a Republican indisposi tion to delay with set speeches. Lxcept on capitol hill Saturday after noons are now periods ot inaction at Washington. President Wilson Satur day threw aside official cares. All the departments were closed. GIRL DIED IN SUICIDE PACT Man With Her Evidently Repented Aft er Part of Poison Was Taken Ha Is Sought by Police. Boston, July 28. A suicide pact is believed to have led to the death of Rose Fivanson, 20 yesrs old of Hartford, Conn., who died of carbolic acid poison ing yesterday. The police are looking tor the man who registered with the girl at a local otel Saturday night, and who disap peared shortly after she was found dying. 1 he young .woman came to noston recently to work as a nurse for a doc tor in a hospital. Yesterday morning the man appeared before the hotel clerk and asked for a doctor. He appeared ill and later the girl was found dying in their room and was rushed to a hospital. Two bottles of acid were found in the room, one entirely drained and the other half empty. It was believed the man took some of the poison and then changed his mind. A note in the girl's hand asked the police not to blame "Billy" and said she was "tired of the life I am leading and I am doing this with a clear mind." HANGS HIMSELF IN CELL.

The Kind You Hare Always Bought Bears the Slgaatv of POLICE DISMISS MURDER THEORY Decide That Woman Found in Lake Mich igan Shot Herself Because She Could Not Find Work. Chicago, July 28. Letters found near where the body of a young woman was recovered from Lake Michigan Friday night convinced the polic Saturday that she had committed suicide because of her failure to obtain employment. The victim was supposed to be Miss E. Lee of Elmo, W5 although her iden tity has not been made positive. The fiistol which brought her death was raced and found to hav been sold here on Wednesday to a Miss Lee, who gave her residence as Elmo. There are sev eral Lee families near Elmo, but none of them knew of a woman answering the description of the victim. The two letters, which explained the woman hsd been out of employment and had been unable to get work, bore no wording to indicate the city from which they had been sent. The coroner's in quest was continued until Thursday to allow the police to make further inves tigation. REPORT 20,000 MASSACRED Americans and Englishmen Are Said To Be Among Bulgar Victims at .

Twenty thousand Greeks and many Mussulmans and Jews are reported to hav perished in the town, which after wards was pillaged by the Bulgars. Xo confirmation of the reported mas sapTe has been received from any other source. TO REDUCE DEATH TOLL. Mine Interests and Surgeons To Have Conference. Washington, D. C, July 28. Mine op erators, turning engineers and "mine sur geons, representing practically every im portant mining company in the United States, will gather at Pittsburg, Pa., on Sept. 22 to discuss methods for re ducing the death toll in mines and quar ries. These men are members of the American Mine Safety association, which held its first meeting one year ago in Pittsburg. Here is the problem they have on hand. In the year 1011, 3,603 men were killed in the mines and quarries of the United States. Sixty-three thousand three hun dred and one were injured during the same time. The death rate for all min ing that year reached 3.58 men in every 1,000 employed. The men who will meet are the leaders in what is known as the "safety first movement which began in the United States about five years ago through the influence of the federal bureau of mines. In that time several hundred mine have been equipped with rescue crews to save life following disasters, and first aid crews to give succor to the men who are injured. The development of this humanitarian work has led to a confusion of methods and the object of the Mine Safety asso ciation is to discuss the different meth ods and recommend the use of only the best. In discussing the object of the as sociation, H. M. W'ilson of the bureau of mines, said to-day, "In the hope of reducing the number of these accidents and shortening the period of disability of the injured, it was felt that there should be greater uniformity in the methods of conducting rescue operations in mines after explosions, fires, or oth er disasters, and to give first aid to the injured. 'Workingmen s compensstion acts have in recent years been passed an fifteen states, of which ten were enacted in tfh year 1911 alone. The rapid spread of legislation compelling employers to care for injured workmen clearly shows the importance to the employer of reducing the liabilities by every means at his dis posal. These are of two kinds, namely, safety or preventive measures and pro tective or rescue and first aid meth ods. ".Mine operators now realize that it fs more expensive to restore wrecked mines, costly to fight damage suits through the courts and less profitable to pay regulated liaDiutv charges or even workmen's compensation, than it is to bear the cost involved in reducing these charges by means of diminishing the number of accidents and the duration of the resulting disability by the adop tion of improved safety, rescue and first aid methods. "Since fifty-eight per cent, of all in dustrial accidents are shown by statis tics to be due to negligence, carelessness or lack of knowledge of employers, or employes, the vital necessity of learning everything possible about the causes snd means of preventing these accidents must be evident to every man concerned in mining. To the operators it spells busi ness success or failure; to the miner, life or the physical ability to work and sup port a family." The meeting at Pittsburg, which will include Sept. 22, 23 and 24, will open with a mine-rescue and ilrst aid contest in Arsenal park, Pittsburg. The next day the members will visit the experi mental mine of the bureau of mines at Bruceton, Pa., where a coal dust explo sion will be made in order to show the members that coal dut is even more dangerous to the miner than gas. On Sept. 24 there will be various meetings to discuss methods and in the afternoon a visit to the experiment station of the bureau of mines.
