The idea in a splendid one and will no doubtUcnrried out. Father Output i of tho opinion that no trouble will lie experienced in getting the inHtitution in running onler nnd all with whom ho ha spoken to on tho subject are very much in favor of it. Tho advantage of locating a good and well kept hospital at thin point arc no many nnd manifest that there ran 1m no doubt nor fear of it proving a great success and particularly convenient The undertaking should, and no doubt will, receive tho hearty support of our people. Many of tho men working in tho woods and mine near hero purchase tickets of admission to hospital at Marinette or Menominee, and when a ticket holder gets hurt, ho has to lie brought here to await a train nnd then taken to the hospital. Ho much travel occasions much suffering and often has tens death. The great convenience of a hospital located hero U apparent. An injured or nick craon can lie placed In the Institution hero at leant ono day earlier than at the inntitution nt the mouth cf the river and tho suffering en dured in traveling one hundred mile bv rail i spared him.

Afraid to l'tay Another iinrnt An Inter' eating VolntnuTtr Say a. Editor Thk Diamonii Diulu Dkah Sm: lVrtnit me to uho space in your valuable pajier to answer to an article uppearing in the Norway Current of Septemlsr 'A. In tho tlrnt placelwant to nay that Mr. Atkinson' account of the 1IU1 game and the treatment my club received whilo at Norway i practically true, every wonl of it. And if tho editor of The Diamond Diull wrote hi item in the tlrst twrmm (lingular, and gave the Norway ball player and their admirer a deserved scorching, he only did hi duty, and there i no denying that it wa hi duty to tell hi renders how shamefully we went treated. However, I am not writing thi to clear Mr. At kinson, because everyone knows ho is in the right, but to contradict several things that Mr. Knight know, or should know, nro wholly untrue. Mr. Knight say that: "tho mid-night supjier to which the Maroon were treated at Crystal Full, win the tail end of a Ma sonic banquet, to which several of the Maroon who were Mason were invited by tho fraternity, but which they did not attend. Later Manager Clapp took them into the dining room and gave them each a cup ol coffee no more, no less.' Now, that i a down-right falsehood, and who ever told Mr. Knight such a story just simply lied no more, no less. I gavo the boys a god supjier of which they partook copiously. When my club play ed at Norway 1 took from hero lietwcvn two and thi ee hundred dollars to cover any tiet that 1 could get. 1 made numerous attempts to get bet but could find no ono to cover my money, except my friend Dick Flannigan, whom I re fused to put up uuy money with, for the reason that there were three new men in tho diamond, one of wnom 1 was led to Ulieve would deliver a ball that my boy could not hit and I did not want to chance any money entrusted to me by my friend on any such dead, but this money i still at my command to bet on a game lietween the Maroons iroierand the Crystal Fall club. During the sixth, not tho second inning a Mr. Knight states, a bluff of 510 wa made, which I did not take up, liecauso I ktww that tho umpire was tiartial to tho Maroons, and 1 wa hardly foolish enough to tnrow mv money awny in supporting my club wfien I could plainly see that they were lieing subjected to what is termed tho "grand ruttle-lazxly," liy the umpn-e who had money on the opposing nine. Mr. Knight ha it "from out? of theclnb" that I will not play for more than 51(H). All I have got to say to that is this: let I the Maroon come up with their $1(M), , ! $"iOO, $1,000 or more, just as soon a ; thev can summons tho courage, anil you i wilfseo whether or not 1 will play my men lor more than ?iou, and l mean business too. As to "Messrs. Clapp and Atkinson," as a conclusion, do not feel ns though they arc indebted to Mr. Urowning, and if an apology i made, it should come from Urowning. As gentle men the memlior of my club will com pare very favorably with certain inein tH'i'M of tho Maroons. I have naught but the most friendly feeling for the Maroon, with the exception of Urowning, anil 1 .! njil lil Ii i in luwii lliui lul In Iwil ii miii4 1t- IUW llWb 1 1 t Vl.win. . .n IW V lllr- man, and din's not recognize a gentleman , when he come In contact with one. The Maroons did not live up to their agree ment and treats u dirty mean, nnd the reason they will not play the third gamo i licca use they know that defeat awaits them. Yours truly, Lou Claim. For one so young Mr. Knight made quite an effort to defend the Norway Maroon. He had a column of stuff in hi last Current which was no doubt in tended to hood-wink tho public and lay tho editor of Thk Diamonii Dium, up for repairs. Mr. Knight might write n dozen volumes larger than dictionaries and still the ieop1o would lie of the same opinion regarding the treatment tho Crystal Fall boso ball club received while at Norway. Knight get funny und trie to Im sarcastic, but as usual all ho succeed ed in doing was to make an as of him self. "Claude" may lie a victim of a di. torttl imagination but his account of that Imll game was correct and every line of it based on fact of tho most for cible kind. Tho editor will correct a few little irregularities which appear in Knight's hist slim and untimely effort and he will rvfrnin from using italics to bring his isiints out. When Mr. Warren umiared the game hcrv he wa square nntl did right by all pa i ties concerned, but hi action during tho game nt Nor way were decidedly not right by no man ner of mean. Ho made derision that were rank and which would not have lvn taken had ho lieen at an' other place Inside Norwnv, now that' true. The big "1" which Mr. Knight ha so much to say nlsiut, i eminently capable of sitting in judgment over the people of Norway, on occasion of tin kind. Tho big "I" brought out a few thing that did not go down very well, more particularly to the Norway hall players. Tho Current' editor makes use of thi remark: '"Wo have not the space nor tho wish to worry our render with three col umn of such 'stuff ns was isud from Tin: I Diamond Duiu.oince." There are several reason for thi. Ono of them i that there wa no occasion for him to WHAT IviB 00 will buy nn elegant, or dolman." ?

He did not positively deny one charge mode in that three col umn of "stun" a he see tit to call it, because it shows up things that is not sublimely congenial to resident of Nor way. Manager Clapp doe talk big money and he can Wk all he says, and if you don't believe it, Ivt Maroon i make nn effort to down him nnd how it will work. Why did not the Maroons, or some of theif Uickers take up the bet of SI 00 offered by one of our club after the game? Tho truth is, they did not dare to. They knew they had got the gamo dishonestly and were afraid to mil up money on a fair ileal. Looks that wny don't it? Again, Knight gios to Florence to find a charge to bring up against one of our players. Ite thechargo true, or otherwise, what has the conduct of our lKiy while at Florence got to do with the case in question? At nny rate it's a mighty small play tor a full grown editor to is? doing. lVrhap one of our isiys did do wrong at Florence : we have only Knight's say at nit It and by that wo may bo lead to Ulieve that the mem ber of the Maroons are sainU above re proach, but they are not. hi1c they were hsif ono of them filled hi epider mis so everlastingly full of good and lirnl whiskey that ho became a nuisance. Thi young man who in tho day time posse forn jsrson above the average, got so full of coffin varnish that he im agined ho wa two people and wa con tinually trying to pursuade "isjor Tom my" to take a drink with him. 1 at McIIugh wngood enough for Mm nnd he enjoyed himself hugely in Mcllugh place. Ho went to a dance ami made himself particularly obnoxious to tho Indie and finally when ho Urnine so Uastly intoxicated that hi frail H' would no longer sustain their animated liquor casket his friend took him to hi hotel in a hammock. Thi little -cur-renco would never have leen mention! had Mr. Knight remained within Isninds It i made clear that the Norway lvall olayer aro not ono whit nicer than our Isiys nnd their tet ball playing i at no stage in the game equal to tho very for est done by our home club, and then' no denying it. Mr. Knight' last week effort had U tter ls-en U ft unsaid, as the less thi matter i stirred up the U tter it i for Norway and its ball lln.vyr. Prank Stevcns.thehireilpitcherhirtheManion, hi conversation with one of our Ih'V a day or so niter tho game said: 1 let I sorry for you Uiys. you got the dirtiest deal I ever saw. 1 played in some year ngo in which wo git it lwl, the worst I ever saw. 1 thought no club could possibly ever get such a deal n we got, but I telf you your club got lt just nlsuit twice aUid a we did. rheir l no such a thing n discounting the treat ment you received." :7 FAIR. ft I Married. 1 James Ilrown, of this placo and Misa !
