' S 9 S S BRATTLEBORO LEAGUE DISBANPED Manager at Keene Died Trouble at Winchester and Ashuelot Clubs Will Play Independently Hereafter Pollcy of Brattleboro Team Has Not Been Fully Declded. The Cheshlre County Baso Uall leaRUo, after a short period of exiatenco, has gono whcre the woodblne twlnoth, to quoto Jnmes Flsk's exprcsslvo phrase. Tho death of Manager Sulllvan puttlne tho Kecno team out of commlsslon, and tho dlfferences between Ashuelot and Winchester cngendered by tho game Sat urday, addd to the comppcatlons. Man ager Amldon was asked to bring the fast new Illnsdale team Into the league ln placo of Keene, but he refused the offer. It was therefore declded 'Wednesday to dlsband the league and let cach team play independently. Tho Winchester manager Is anxious to arrango a series of games betwcen Brattleboro and Winchester. No gamo will be played in Brattleboro this weok, and the pollcy of tho local man agement for tho rest of tho season has not been fully declded. Louis Allen will go next week to Hinsdalo to play as ln llelder for Amidon's nggregation. Flsh cr, of tho Y. M. C. A. team last year, who did good work for Cushlng academy at second base this season, will be Brattle-lioro's- new short stop, and Stolte will cover tliird base. It is belleved that this comblnation wlth March on second and Waite on flrst will givo Brattleboro a stronger infleld than at any tlme this season. KNOCKING SOME. Ashuelot Base Ball Management Objects to Certaln Statements and Pays Com- pllments to Winchester. Tho account of Saturday's ball game between Winchester and Ashuelot at Winchester as In tho Star must have originated in tho fancles of a dlsordered brain. Some of tho remarks aro not only prevarications, but if mado by a person accountable would be consldcred .insulting. It would bo a great deal bet ter If the Star edltor could get somo ono in Winchester to wrlto up the gamea just as they aro played, even If Winches ter met defeat. In regard to umplres we would say that at no tlme has our um plro glven the battery slgnals to tho bat ter, nor has he over coached the baso runner white ho was umpiring bases. Harly in tho season the attentlon of tho longue's presldent was called to tho fact that neutral umplres would glve better satisfactlon, but evldently lio thought ho could wln moie games with Thompson, nnd after seelng how well "Kd" has per formed we ngreo with Mr. Josuro, and in regaid to "dlrty ball playlng" It would bo decldedly wrong for any one to ac cuso any of the Winchester boys of "dlrty ball playlng," for wo all know that they aro very gentlcmanly young men, both in their playlng and in their coachlng, nlways belng careful wlth their language lest they mlght ottend. Not ono of them would evcr thlnk of playlng a mean trick or dolng a dlrty act on tho ball fleld, In fact, wo havo always expected to see them appcar on tho ball fleld in full oven Ing dress In order to brlng tho gamo up to that hlgh moral standlng so well apprecl ated ln Winchester.

Slattery has had an offer to go to tho Plattsburg club in the Northern league. but will remain wlth Brattleboro. "Buck" Morrlson, one of tho rovcrs in baso ball, who was wlth Amidon's Illns dale club, jolned Manchester of tho New England league last week. ln hls flrst gamo ho mado a three-bagger and two sacrifico hlts, ncttlng thrce runs. The game between Winchester and As huelot at Winchester Saturday was a tle, 2-2, ln tho elghth lnning, when Umpire Hewett of Ashuelot called a runner out for interferenco wlth a fielder. A kick followod, the game was stopped, and Hewett awnrded it to Ashuelot, 9-0. Man ager Lesure of Winchester protestcd and probably the executlvo commlttce of tho leaguo will bo called upon to settle tho nuostion of tho result of tho game. Manager Amldon of Illnsdale Is pushing hls newly-organized team wlth hls usual enterprlse. Hls nggregation now includes lllrmlngham, late of Manchester, who has been wlth soveral professional teams, flrst base; I.andy of Holyoke, second; Wood ward, the University of Vermont hard hltter, short; Clark of Nashua, thlrd; Derby, late of Montreal, and Murphy of Keene, a left-hander who was with Fitch burg early ln tho season, pltchcrs. Brooks nnd Carney aro dolng the backstop work, nnd Young, Hann anu Bellevllle, all Illns dale boys, aro In tho outlleld, wlth H. Smlth and Converse as substltutes. Cornellus Sulllvan, captaln of tho Keene club, dled suddenly from heart dlsease In Keeno Frlday, Sulllvan was bno of the old tlmers havlng played ball moro than 20 years. In hls younger days ho was ono of tho best nmateur catchers ln New Kngland. He was a brlght, wltty coacher and kept up nn incessant stream of talk whllo on tho ball fleld. In tho early '80's, when Foley, Georgo Brasor and others wero on the Brattleboro team, Sulllvan's pitcher sustalned an Injury ln a game licro. To the surprlso of overybody Sulll van went into tho box, nnd largcly by hls talk and jollylng worked tho battcrs to such an extent that they hlt hlm but little and ho won tho game. About 20 years ago when Amherst needed a good catcher Sulllvan was drafted to tho collcgo ranks nnd he played good ball thero throughout ono season. After leavlng Amherst ho was wlth professional clubs in Fort Wayne, Toledo, Oswego, Rochester, Sprlngfleld nnd Iludson, Mnss., Bellows Falls, Rutland nnd Havcrhill. Ho had iilled nearly overy posltion in tho Infleld. Ho was 42 years old. Ho Is survlved by a wife, father, threo brothers and threo slstcrs.

Allen nnd Ferrlter were the old rollables in the outlleld, the one error by the formcr belng excusable. Ferrlter s three bagger ln the mornlng was ono of the prcttlest drlves cver seen on the grounds, nnd would have been good for a liotner ordlnarily. Tho work of Hanley behlnd tho bat, Drugg at Hrst and (5. Thompson at short was of a hlgh order for inchcster, and tho Thompson boys pltched well. A. Thompson ln tho aflernoon had tho locals on the strlng to an extent not credlted to any other pitch er this year, holding them down to four hlts and strlklng out 12 men.

Co. s Store Nlght Before the Fourth Nlght Was Unusually Qulet. The only Instanco of mallclous mls ehlef In Brattleboro on the nlght boforc the Fourth, so far as rcported to tho pollce olllccr.i, took place between 11 and 12 o'elock, when bullets were shot at tho wlndows In Jnrdlno & Co.'s store, tho comer store ln the Urooks Houso build lng. one window belng pierced nnd another belng broken and both belng shattcred for a radlus of several Inches from the IMilnt of Inipart Tho wlndows whlch were struck were the two next north of the maln cntranre to the Brooks House. In tUe mornlng a bullet was found on tho sldefcalk under tho tlrst window nnd another bullet was found Inslde tho store under tho second window. A thlrd bullet struck the Iron post between tho two wlndows nnd fell to tho sldewnlk, wliere It wns found. I'eoplc who s.it on the Brooks House balcony knew when tho shots were llred as the report was differ ent from that made by blank cartrldges, nnd one man at lea.it looked over tho balustrade, but saw nothlng to Indlcate who flred the shots. The bullets struck on the same level and to all appearances they were flred by one person who was walklng nlong. It has been suggested by some that tho bullets may have been mlxod In wlth blank cartrldges unlnton tlonally, but It seems strange that nny ono could be gullty of such crlmlnal care lessness. Tho baillffs of tho vlllage have oflered a reward of $25 for informatlon whlch will lead to the arrest and convlc tlon of the person who fired tho shots. F. C. Crosby, ono of tho owncrs of the hulldlng. says that it will cost not far from 125 to replnce tho wlndows. Tho pollco otllcers say that asldo from this shootlng Incldent tho Fourth nnd tho nlght before wero unusually qulet. The small boys wero out ln forco nnd several bontltes wero bullt on Maln streot and elsewhore. An old huggy whlch cost Carl Henkel $10 was taken from near Mr. Henkel's automolillo house back of Dr. J. S. Dutton's barn nnd burned ln front of the BrattlelH)i-o House. The boys told tho otllcers that Mr. Henkel gave It to them. Its nppenraneo tndlcated that the boys wcr6 telllng the truth. An old slelgh whlch was brought to light from somo unknown souree wns thrown off tho Maln street brldgo Into Whetstono brook. The nlght beforo the Fourth, belng Sunday nlght, wns generally respected, but occas lonnlly a flrecracker was heard, There were no sorlous nccldcnts Monday. In the evcnlng more than the usual number of home celebrntlons wero held. The Late Deacon Royal Streeter of Whit ingham. In the death of Deacon Royal Streeter, whlch occurred recently.

Ho was also director of tho choir for 34 years nnd could slng In a clear, unbrokcn olco nearly to the day of hls death. Hls volco was a baritone, but he was ablo to cover a range of threo octnves.
