TAKE SCALP OF HARRISONS Pottawattamles Tot l' Too Swift a Game (or Visiting; County Officials The Harrison county offukvs have among their number several good ball players, but nevertheless they went down In de feat before the Pottawattamles yesterday afternoon at Lake Manawa. At the close of the seventh Inning the scalps of the biaves from Logan, tho county seat of Harrison county, were dangling at the belts of Freeman and Reed and other offi cials of -Pottawattamie county. To In part compensate them for their defeat the men who administer the affairs of Harri son county were the guests of the Potta wattamles at dinner at the Grand hotel at the close of the game when the bravea doffed their war paint and once more as sumed the garb of civilians. The Harrison county men, 125 strong, headed by the Royal Highlanders' band of Logan, journeyed to Council Bluffs In a special train over the Illinois Centra!, reaching here at 3 p. m. They arrived fully confident of downing the Pottawat tamles but despite their brlllant dark green and red uniforms they were forced to re turn home acknowledging that they had met their Waterloo. The game was, taking everything into consideration, a very fair exhibition of ball and was much enjoyed by the large crowd which filled the grandstand. In size and weight the Harrison braves easily out classed the Pottawattamles but the up, down, In and out curves of Dr. Wyland of Underwood for the home team told the tale and brought defeat to the visitors. The team of the Harrison county men was made up of the following: C. L. Huff, deputy county auditor; E. S. Garri son, cleric of the district court; H. L. Har vey, county recorder; D. W. Owens, deputy recorder; T. M. Adams, deputy treasurer, A. W. Blackburn, deputy clerk of the district court; A. J. Shlnn, sheriff; G. W. Atkins, deputy auditor; D. E. Bralnard, county surveyor. Pottawattamie county was represented by Freeman L. Reed clerk of the district court; Tracy Rod well, deputy clerk of the district court; Dr. Wy!and, county physi cian. Underwood; Harry M. Brown, clerk of the superior court; Ed. Canning, former deputy sheriff; G. Balrd, of the recorder's office; E. Smith, jr., of the recorder's of fice; BUI Nye, unattached; William Amd, count:' trea&urer. W. R. Adams of the county treasurer's office of Harrison county essayed the role of umpire and bravely defied the threats of lynching that was freely made. Deputy Sheriff Groneweg of Council Bluffs and G. E. Ferguson of the Logan Nucleus acted as official scorers. Freeman Reed pitched the first two ln nlnta for the Pottawattamles .and his work was a revelation to his friends. After the second Inning his arm gave out and he retired In favor of Dr. Wyland who pitched the rest of the game. Bill Nye was behind the bat and In consequence he has "-several sore spots on his hands and ehlns. For the visitors County Treasurer Harvey pitched for the first five Inning and then made way for Deputy County Auditor Huff. Harvey's retirement from the box was due to the fact that part of his rnlnmcnt met with an accident and he was compelled to seek a change. E. 8. Oar rlKon, clerk of the district court, was be hind the bat and showed that It was not the first time he had essayed the role of catcher. To describe the game In detail would be nuperfl uoua and the official scorers not be ing versed in the Intricacies of the great national game did not keep a very accurate score. The game ended, however. In favor of Pottawattamie by the score of I to t For the first tour Innlnzs Harrison county looked like a sure winner, but the Potta wattamles were ra iled by Dr. Wyland and at the cIoko of the fifth Inning It was a tie, eurh side having secured I runs. At the close of the sixth It was I to I In favor of Pottawattamie and at the close of the first half of the seventh It was again a tie. Then In the last halt of the last Inning the Pottawattamles scored two men and won amidst the applause of the ad mtrins multitude. Dinner was served at the Orand betel when the game was played over again and the visitors returned to the con dries of their own county much pleased with their trip, leaving behind them an Invitation for the Fottawattamles to Invade Harrison county and piny a return game. The In vitation, It Is understood, will be ac cepted. liny Voting- Contest.
