The Catholic congregation of thin plate,
headed by their mdcfatlgablo .leader,
Father Kdw. Chapuis, i seriously think
ing of purchasing the old Jatne building,
on the south-west corner of Fifth street
and Crystal arenuo, completing it and
ooning a hospital, with sister of some
religious order in charge. 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. Tho hospital will
have a full cori of physicians and
surgeon. Such an undertaking should
Uj carried through..

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

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,
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

more than should have t-n said : the
leshehasto say from hi side of tho
qiHstkm the better it will bo for the
Norway base ball club and it snarling
little captain. 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
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."
