WYANDOTTE DAILY CRICKET THE "KEEP IT UP FOR KANSAS" I. No. 272 KANSAS CITY, KANSAS, MONDAY, JUNE 9, 1913 Price 1 Cent TEN CENTS DOLLAR MONA THEY TURNED THE TABLE GAUNTIERS CAME BACK AT MERCHANTS WITH 7 TO 6 WIN. Daniels Beat Bowman Speers- Stevens Won Two -Dicks and Floods the Victors at Brenneisens Park, Two rather close, but slow and interesting games were played at Heathwood Park yesterday afternoon, amid the most exciting surroundings ever seen at the little resort. A woman seriously wounded by a foul ball, and several fights between negroes and whites, withdrew the attention of the crowd from the game at different times.

Mrs. D. A. Burton of 1919 N. Seventh street, was struck above the eye by a ball batted by "Bill" Barrett, the Merchant catcher.

The first game the Daniels White Sox took from the Bowman Spears by the score of 5 to 3. The wildness of Ebeck helped the Sox to the victory. He alle only four hits, but his wildness was coupled with errors, which served to turn the tide of victory against him. L. Wise pitched good ball for Daniels' team, allowing only 5 bingles, and fanning 16 men.

The Daniels scored a run in the first and one in the second, the first one on an error by Stinson, catcher, and the second one on Read's home run. The Bowman Spears collected their first counter in the third, when Tarry threw the ball into center try. ing to stop a stealer and the ball went through the right and center fielders in turn, allowing the runner to score. The Gauntiers took the lead in the fifth by tallying two on thre singles. The Daniels regained it in their half of the fifth with two runs on Newitt single, Lorfing's walk and steal of second and an infield out.

The big third baseman showed some base running of the Ty Cobb style when he scored from second on this infield out. The Sox added one more to their count in the eighth on a walk, a steal and an error. The Sox ran the bases wild on Stinson, their former team-mate, swiping seven sacks, Read getting four of these. Read, in four times at the bat, got a home run, was hit once and walked twice, He scored two runs. Gauntiers Take Second Game.

The Gene Gauntiers, by hitting Joe Lillis hard in the pinches, came back after their defeat of last Sunday at the hands of the Merchants, and' took the latter team to a trimming by a 7 to 6 total. It was a loosely played affair, although sharp fielding livened things up at intervals. The Merchants started out in the first with one tally. Three errors by Hanna, and a single by Vail counted the run. A run was killed at the plate and one runner was thrown out at third in this stanza.

The Gauntiers came back in their half of the first and tied the count. An error by Lillis and a double by Garnahan did the work. The Gauntiers took the lead in the fourth while the Merchants were resting. Vail's error and Hanna's first dauble lead to the run. The Merchants rested till the fifth, when they set off the big foreworks.

An error, a passed ball, four singles and a double in a row were the producers of five runs, which apparently put the game on ice with the score 6 to 2. But Lillis proved unequal to the task of holding the theatre boys off. The next inning saw them getting two tallies. A single by Trickett, and twobase blows by Groves and Carnahan made the two. Stuck's team won the game in the seventh.

A pass to Carnahan, doubles by O'Neill and Hanna, and another timely single by Trickett pushed around three runs and won the game for the Gauntiers, their sccond win of the season. Hanna, with two doubles and a single in four times up; Trickett, with three singles delivered in the pinch, and Carnahan with two doubles, led in the batting. Hanna pitched good ball outside of the fifth frame. In the last four innings, following the big fifth, he set the Merchants down in order. Each pitcher struck out 13 men.

Catches by Hendrickson and Foerschler featured. Batteries Lillis and Barrett; Hanna and C. Wise. Dick Bros. in 7 to 2 Game.

The Dick Bros. team handed the Brenneisen Burch's a lemon tag: ged 7 to 2, and made the defeat more stinging by bagging four four bag clouts. Two of these came in succession. Compton twirled good ball for the Dicks. In the first game the B.

Floods slipped over a 5 to 4 defeat to the Steno Athletics. Stevens Take Two at Chelsea. At Chelsea Park the Stevens of the Inter-City League won two 3 to 2 games. The first was a 7-inning affair from the Fraternal Order of Gobblers. The second was a victory over the Fosters of the Semi-Pro League, and was featured by the masterly pitching of Schultz for the Stevens.

DROVE HER TO WOODSHED So Judge Brady Sent John Rebeck, 19, To the Workhouse.

"I will fine him $100," said udge Brady, "You had better go home and bring the boy a pair of overalls," the court told the mother, "as the work in the city workhouse may not go well with the suit he is wearing."

CROWDS AT TAYLORS. The Low Prices on Groceries Attract Many Cricket Readers. The grocery bargains advertised by the Taylor Grocery Co. in the Sunday Cricket yesterday attracted scores of buyers to their popular store at Fifth and Union Avenue.

After Fining Osage Hotel Keeper $500 On Liguor Charge Judge Brady Gave Frequenters a Dose For $25 Each. John Christenson, a hotel keeper, 33 Osage avenue, was fined $500 and sentenced to 300 days in the city workhouse this morning by Judge Joseph Brady in police court on a charge of maintaining a liquor nuisance. Four frequenters were fined $25 each.

When the police raided the place Saturday night, according to their testimony in court this morning, they found two cases of beer and several half empty bottles of beer in a room where the men charged with frequenting. the place were found. All the men arrested on the frequently charge told the court that they did not see any beer sold or being drank at the place. "I do not believe you," Judge Brady told the men, "and I am going to fine each of you $25 for telling a falsehood. GOOD LAW FOR OLD SOAKS.

You Can't Lie About Having No Booze Under New Mahin Law. (Verified by Frank Holcomb.) "Is the country going to be saved?" State Senator I. N. Mahin, of Smith Center, was addressing a bunch of delegates to the recent Topeka harmony meeting. "A country is not worth saving that robs us of our personal liberties," a Leavenworth delegate observed, and pointing a long, bony finger at Mahin, he said: "You are the fellow who has put the last clamp upon us in the passage of the now celebrated Mahin liquor law." "My friend, you should cheer up and look at this new law in a more favorable light," Mahin said.

"I have evidence that it is the greatest boon to 'old soaks' ever conceived." Senator Mahin then explained the benefits of the new law to the boozers who simply 1 must have their liquor. It was this way. Going from his office to his home one evening, Mahin was accosted at the mouth of an alley by an "old soak" who was "soaked." Putting his arms around the Smith county senator, he said: "Senator, your Mahin law has saved my life many times. Before it went into effect I had a hard time getting a drink from any of my neighbors and friends. When I would drop around and suggest that I was dry and needed a little something, invariably they would tell me they were out.

I knew they were in the habit of getting consignments from Kansas City. I tell you I suffered all kinds of torture. "Your law has proved a blessing to me. Before I start out to call on my neighbors who are in the habit of having a little something in the cellar I go up to the county clerk's office and look over the list of shipments. If they lie to me simply refer to the official records I have examined and then the booze is forthcoming.

I tell you I am for the Mahin law strong." MRS. BURTON MUCH IMPROVED. Eye Hurt By Baseball Removed at Hospital. The condition of Mrs. D.

J. Chambers, 62, Attempted Suicide This, Morning. T. J. Chambers, 62 years old, for many years a gripman on the old cable line in Kansas City, attempted suicide at six o'clock this morning at his home, 2534 Alden avenue by severing the arteries in his wrists with an old paring knife.

What's the Difference Whether They Know If They Waste City Money Anyway, To The Cricket: I am informed recently the water and light commissioner of Kansas City, stated, that he had 000.00 of the first bond issue which had not been spent.

In checking over this account two or three days later the city treasurer found that only 000.00 of the bond issue had not been spent. It seems that is giving a great lee way between $53,000.00 and 000.00. The tax payers are wondering just what manner in which the accounts are handled that a mistake of that amount could be made. -A taxpayer in this city for 40 years. PLENTY OF GAS AT OLD RATE NO CAUSE TO FEAR SHORTAGE, JOHN DAWSON SAYS.

Kansas Attorney General Declares. Scheme To Advance Price Has Been Blocked For a Long Time To Come. Topeka, June consumers of natural gas need not fear a lack of natural gas or an increase in prices for a long time to come, according to John S. Dawson, attorney general, who returned yesterday from Kansas City, where Judge John Marshall of the federal court has turned the Kansas property of the Kansas Natural Gas company over to the receivers appointed by the Kansas courts. "Judge Marshall's decision is sweeping victory for the state," said the attorney general.

"The ease will make plenty of work for the lawyers for a year or two, the public may confidently assume that the eighteen months' campaign of the gas company to exact higher rates is effectively blocked for a long time to come. The fact that for the time being the federal receivers remain in charge of the properties in Missouri and Oklahoma is not important. I think there is no property in Missouri to speak of. In Oklahoma, to be sure, are large sources of supply, but I am bound to believe the federal receivers will act on the square and give us all the gas possible, while the state receivrs, who are thoroughly experienced gas men will probably enlarge and develop the Kansas field. There is no danger of losing in the higher courts the victory the state has won before Judge Marshall.

The judge frankly said that his decision was reluctantly given, but it was imperative in view of the long line of decisions of the United States supreme court, supporting our contentions in this case." COMPLIMENTS PROBATE COURT. Bonding Company Agent Says Judge Sims' Records Are Par Excellence. E.

Call at 1038 Troupe K. C. K. 6-9-15 HONEYMOON TRAIL NO RICE (Copyright.) CABLE DODGES BEHIND DUST BAG. Tries to Fog the Issue on His Criminal Extravagance by Talk on Cheapness of Municipal Light.

Jim Cable is getting busy with his dust bags again in spite of the fact that he came out with a great phony boast that he was going to quit trying to explain his waste of public money. He is printing letters about the cheapness of municipal electricity. Now the advantage of municipal light has never been called in question by the Cricket any more than commission government has been. It's the criminal waste of public money at the city hall that this paper is fighting. Half the people who use city electricity in the town are paying for it and half are not.

Of couse if the city blunders around and gives 235 consumers $2 to $18 worth of current for 75 cents a month, it's cheap. But somebody has to pay the loss. In this case it's the taxpayers. Why not have a competent management at the city hall and have municipal electricity that doesn't rob one man and cost another nothing? As long as a commissioner can go out every year or two and get a quarter of a million dollars more in bonds he can blunder along in most any way till he gets the town hopelessly into debt and the people are bound for the next generation and it's too late. down on Boeke and north of Central and south of Central for half a dozen blocks.

Follow Gilmore east from Tenth. See the poles all over that vicinity with nothing on them and no excuse for putting anything in the way of wire on them. Within 600 yards of Central and Boeke there are a lot of poles which were put there last fall or late last summer. Jim Cable had a lot of poles and wire on hand and so they were set up and run everywhere and anywhere. Later the gang went and took the wires off to use somewhere else and the poles are there yet, to be moved some other time at a waste of $600 more.

Ask anybody along Tenth Street about the blunders, one after another, for weeks and weeks, made in setting the poles along that street. And 98 out of every 100 of Jim Cable's expensive blunders are absolutely inexcusable and chargeable to nothing in the world but astounding stupidity. Such blundering can continue only so long as you go into debt for more and more bonds and more and more interest on bonds, Mr. Taxpayer.
