THE BARRE DAILY TIMES, BARRE, VT., SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1914.'
"WIN" ADAMS
TOO CRAFTY
Held Barre A. C. Batters
Safely and Keene
Won, 4 to 1
DAVIDSON STRONG
' EXCEPT. IN 2 INNINGS
;A Fast Article of Ball Was
: ; Revealed at Inter
( v city Park ;
Baseball tinctured of the long-cher-'ished
game displayed in the palmy days
of the old Northern league was shown
t Intercity park yesterday afternoon,
when the Barre A. C. lost by the score
of 4 to 1 in the firstt encounter of the
two-game series with the Keene, N. H.(
' club of the Twin-Sfeate league. The
Keene team, although generally ac
knowledged" to ' hive assembled one of
the. strongest organizations ever affili
ated with the Twin State circuit, found
a very formidable : .adversary in the
Barre team. ' Interest in the game was
always manifested. '
The ' standards of victory flew over
the dugout of the Keene. club because
of the superb twirling of "Win" Adams.
the: well-known- Tufts college athlete.
Nevertheless, the hopes of the Keene
club were not solely pinned on the big
Tufts star previous to the game, but
were center in the potentiality of its
, excellent assemblage of players, who
represent some of the best college talent
';. h. vi The Keene team on the
field presented the appearance of the big
tent show, especially the infield. Ihe
play of the inner works was stonewall,
and many hits were held up by the fast
fielding of the quartet. ' v ,
During the first three innings, Keete
'secured five hits, scoring its quartet of
tallies in the second and third innings.
After those innings, the Keene lads
wielded the ash sticks , with good effect
but were unable to score further.
Barre never entered within the danger
zone until the last session. With one
down in the.ninth, the Barre lads start
ed to flirt with victory, by a battmfe
rally. Barre admirers pulled hard for
victory, but the rally was smothered
with but one run. The, rally threw a
scare Into the camp of Sullivan's pro
teges, and emergency pitchers were con
spicuous in one corner of the lot, pre
pared to enter the game. ,.
That the Keene victory did not reacB
greater proportions is in some phases
. miraculous in view of the accident in
the fourth innine. when both members
tif the Barre battery met with injuries.
In this inning Adams skied the ball to
a lofty altiude. 'Both Davidson and
Fowlie signaled for the ball, which was
to land oh fair territory. Alter a con
tinuous exchange of courtesies to the
other, both lunged after the sphere ana
. collided. The impact threw both heavily
. to the eround. Fowlie was rendered
semi-conscious and before play could be
resumed the game had been suspended
about fifteen minutes. Fowlie received
nn injured noge, a discolored eye and
bruised cheek. One of Davidson's lamps
' was discolored and partly closed. Both
players leturned to the game, receiving
laud plaudits lrom me stanas.
"Win" Adams pitched after the fash
lon that gained repute for him.in college
:circles. His easy over-hand' delivery
brought forth a very deceptive ball to
the Barre batters. He used an excellent
vhango of pace and had his opponents
?. baffled from the start. Adams was hit
; safely but three times and managed to
, fan fifteen batters during the nme-in
' nina frav. The three hits off Adams
.were well scattered,
"Tommy" Davidson proved a sturdy
opponent for Adama He was hit rather
neeiy aunug ine nrsi uirue iijiiiun,
but after that he heaved masterful ball
and guided his teammates safely out of
danger.
" The features of the game were the
i hitting of McElwee, Murray and Sulli
Ifvan of the Keene team and the brilliant
'fielding of Nute, the Barre lad, in the
' ehort field. Nute's wkVa short was
the best seen at Intercity this season.
He ambled about the field with sur
prising agility and by some clever stops
and throws staved off many hits. Mur
: ray and McElwee each secured three
'hits and Sullivan embraced a duo of
binglea.
The Scoring.
. Murray opened the second with a dou
'tle into center field. Meehan, the Dean
, lad, ftied to Toraasi. Sullivan leaned
against one of Davidson's shoots for a
;,ingle into center field, scoring Murray
from second. Sullivan was forced at
second on Carroll's grounder to Beck
with. Adams closed the inning by fan
ning. Johnston's wild throw to Stuart of
,Lynch's grounder, after one man had
, been retired, started trouble in the third.
.McElwee singled to left field. Pedum
threw to third to head off Lynch. The
'ball took a bad bound, Lynch scoring
. and McElwee perching on third. Lee
patrolled and stole second base. MurTay
pounded out a single to right, scoring
(both base runners. Murray was thrown
out trying to make second on the throw
.'.in. Meehan closed the inning when Pe
'duzzi pulled down his hard drive.
Barre's only opportunity to score
' rame in the ninth session. Nute fanned.
Stuart singled to right field. Johnston's
line drive was dropped by. Meehan in
left field, Stuart advancing to second.
Fowlie was hit by a pitched ball, filling
the hassocks. Beckwith hit to McElwee,
-who threw bis man out at first. Stuart
cored on the play. Tomasi ended the
rally by fanning. The score:

Sidelights on the Game.
To-dayfa game will be well worth
seeing.
"Cap .Lee, the old Uoddard player, has
not yet fully recovered from the effects
of his recent illness. After a complete
recuperation, Lee should be of great
service to the Keene team.
One of Barre's deficiencies was the
weakness of hitting by ita outfielders.
Fish, tine Keene catcher, who entered
the latter part of the game, is said to
have received flattering offers from the
Baltimore Federals. It is rumored he
will join Knabe's Terrapins within a
short time. - . -
The work of Pedum in left field was
worthy of comment. The fleet-footed
little fellow pulled down three pretty
files.
A perfect score, six assists and four
putouts, was turned in by Nute. His
acceptance of chances in the first inning
of grounders by Stafford and Lynch was
of high order. He ran behind third base,
after Johnston had fumbled Lynch s
roller, and by a clever throw retired the
batter at first.
The personnel of Sullivan's Keene
team contains many well-known college
players. . Stafford, Lee and Adams form
the bulwark of the Tufts team. McEl
wee, the Bowdoin inflelder, is rated high
ly in Maine college circles. Meehan and
Murray, the Hardwick lad, secure learn
ing at Dean academy. Lynch played at
the Catholic university during the past
year. Carroll was the mainstay catcher
at Holy Cross this season, and Fish
claims Seton Hall as his alma mater.

A squad of New England ball players
scurried out from under the paternal
wing of Coach Breckenbridge at the Ber
lin street grounds ' yesterday afternoon
and did battle for 10 innings with ths
Italian Athletics. It was a nip-and-tuck
affair for nine chapters, six all it stood
on the threshold of the 10th when the
locals aeroplaned into the nether spawn
long enough to allow Brattleboro five
runs and the victory. The Twin Staters
won, but in all truth it was by a rare
piece of luck. The successful flight of
Professor Langley's rejuvenated biplane
a few weeks since had nothing on that
dirigible ascension of the Italians in the
last round.
It cannot be safely said that the
I. A, C. was up against the team that i
to represent Brattleboro in the Twin
State league this summer. Not if Brat
tleboro is to have a look in on the pen
nant race. Coach Breckinbridge's aggre
gation is swift enough to set our own
boys a merry pace, but Its choppy show
ing against the calibre of college and
ex-league men in the days to come will
never do.
Speare, the University of Vermont
twirler, was on the bill for the home
team and against him Brattleboro
matched Sturtevant, f youngster of some
pjomise, but still lacking in the per
formance. Sturtevant was touched for
some real saucy slaps even while the
Twin State men were getting to Speare
good and hard. Brattleboro hit in the
pinches and profited continually by bad
blunders. The game was a curious ad
mixture of wizardry and baleful mis
takes. In one moment someone would
get away with a hair-raising stunt in
the field or at the bat and in the next
someone else's showing would put to
shame the merest schoolboy. But it was
a highly diverting afternoon, neverthe
less, and it'a a pretty long shot that
fans who stroll down to Berlin street to
day will see. the finest exhibition that
has been uncorked thus far.
De vine's clean wallop to left and puer
ile work on the part ot Giacamuzzi and
Speare made possible the first two Brat
tleboro runs. Devine tallied from second
when Lund hit to Giacamuzzi, who foo
zled. Counter returned the bull to
Speare, who slid it over second in try
ing to catch Lund. The latter went to
third and scored in the next moment on
a wild pitch. With a man down in the
sixth, Barrett singled to right and went
to the nt pillow on Maidens boot.
He scored when Davidi fumbled a roller
from Brazill. There was a man gone in
the seventh when Sturtevant singled to
right and Roeler duplicated. Both tagged
the plate on Barrett a smacking double
to the boards. That was all for the sev
enth, for Devine's high and far-away one
fell a prey to the winged Bottigi In
the best catch of the day. Delaney had
already shot an easy one to Davidi.
Ricciarelli's inexcusable muff in the
eighth and Speare's wild throw brought
the total up to six. With everything
tied up in the 10th, Devine flied out to
Giacamuzzi and then the pyrotechnical
display began. Lund got a crack in the
thigh and Maiden made a poor attempt
to field Brazill's roller. White was hit
by a pitched ball and the corners were
occupied. It was Sullivan who cleared
the circuit with a steaming double to
left. Sullivan tallied on Sturtevant's
single, Sturtevant went along a peg on
Calcagni's miscue and registered on De
laney's sacrifice fly to Counter, who
made a prime throw home.
How the Italians Scored.
There were errors by White and Sul
livan that contributed to the Italians'
first pair in the third. Comolli got the
only hit, but a free one to Davidi kept
the ball arolling. In the fifth Riccia
relli got a life on Rocler's fumble, wa
sacrificed to second and third by Maid
en, and came home on Davidi's nice sac
rifice to center. Although Calcagni was
an easy out in the eighth, Davidi got
a walk and came over the pan on Joe
Comolli's well known triple to the
bushe. Joe added another run when
Counter bounded the ball to first. The
latter made a weak effort to gain second
and was caught out by a ridiculous mar
gin.
It was in the ninth that the game was
almost negotiated and then passed over
to the invaders with hardly a struggle.
Speare singled and was sent to second
on Giacamuzzi's sacrifice roller to first.
Little Steve Marchesi, whose name would
have been on every tongue last night
had the hometowners won, was sent in
as a pinch hitter. Stevie did nothing hut
pole out a splendid double that tallied
Speare. Marchesi went to station No. 3
on Maiden's neat single to shallow right.
And Maiden went down on the next ball.
It was here that Maiden, freBh from the
rollcge campus and tutelage of Coach
Winter, attempted to pull something
that works about once in a season out
side the big time. Willie thought to
score Marches! from third by drawing a
throw from the box. He succeeded only
so far as he drew the throw; Marchesi
scampered home in time to be tagged out
by less than three yards. That made
two men down and Calcagni, next up,
fanned. Three ment went down in order
for the Italians in the 10th. The score:
Brattleboro.

About that Section.
Prospect for a baseball league of a
serai-professional character in Rutland
county and vicinity are unsually bright
just now, according to Manager Harry
Shedd of the ( enter Rutland team. Man
ager Owens of the Granville, N. Y., team
has been in communication with Mr.
Shedd, and seems favorable to the idea.
If a league is ultimately formed it
will consist of teams representing Cen
ter Rutland, Proctor, Poultney and
Granville. Manchester cannot put an
organization In the field. A four-team
league would lend itself, it is believed,
to a satisfactory schedule. Within a
few days very definite steps will have
been taking looking to the formation of
a league, or the matter will be a dead
issue.

New London, June 20. By four inches
Yale won the varsity four-mile race from
Harvard yesterday, in a struggle which
will stand out in rowing history.
When the shells flashed by the finish
flags, first the blue flag and then the
crimson were waved from the judge's
boat leaving the crowd in hysterical un
certainty until it was decided Yale had
won the first varsity race in seven years,
with Harvard a fifth of a second later.
The shells drifted side by side after
the finish. Stroke Appleton, Yale, lay
prone in the bottom of the boat, Shel
don was doubled over until his head
touched the planking and. Harvard hung
limp on the slides, stunned by the Y'ale
victory, but quickly recovered and gave
Yale a feeble but sportsmanlike cheer.
From the start both crews rowed side
by side, Yale alwaye setting the pace,
Harvard responded stroke for stroke, one
prow slipping a little in the lead and be
ing quickly overhauled by the other, nev
er once open water showing between the
shells.
The blue held half a length advantage
at every half mile flag, except at the
three and a half mile station. Here the
crimson spurted and for a few hundred
yards led.
Appleton raised the Yale stroke and
the Elis regained their lead by inches,
never relinquishing. There is no ques
tion of Yale's right to the victory, the
officials differing only as to inches.
Yale's victory was explained by the
blue sweeping across at the heiirht of its
strofce, while Harvard's shell lost head
way as the eight oarsmen were reach
ing forward for another grip on the water.

200 MEN TRAPPED IN MINE.
Only Half of Shift Escapes When Fire
Starts in Belgian Shaft.
Liege, Belgium, June 20. Fire broke
out in the coal mines near here yester
day and two hundred miners were en
tombed. When the fire was discovered the
alarm was sounded and about two hun
dred of those underground succeeded in
escaping. Every effort ia being made to
rescue those who remain trapped.
THE INCREASE IN EXPENSES
In our previous statements we have shown that the receipts
of this road during its sixteen years' operation have never, in any
year, been sufficient to provide for the depreciation of the prop
erty or to pay any return on the money invested. In this adver
tisement we will explain how the operating expenses have recently
been increased and will continue to increase through circumstances
entirely beyond our control. ... ..
The new method of taxation adopted by the state of Vermont
assesses taxes on this company on the basis of an appraisal of
its property made by state authorities. During the current year
alone, this method has increased our annual state tax by nearly
$600. This one item means an increase of over one per cent, in
the road's operating expenses.
In the matter of wages, this company faces a still larger annual
increase. It will be recalled that in February last, while nego
tiations were in progress with motormen and conductors looking
to a readjustment of the wage schedule, a strike was called. We
were urged to submit the question of wages to arbitration, which
we did, and as a result of this arbitration the company is com
mitted to an increase in the wage schedule each year until Febru
ary 1, 1917.
Without criticising in any way the award of the arbitration
board, it is only fair to point out that because of it our annual
deficit will be automatically increased, and even if we were in
clined to do so, we could not prevent this addition to our operating
expenses. Only under a receivership could the company avoid
