The same scheduled between

," Seven hits in a row in the first In-1
. ning prbved the undoing i of Marty
O'Toole yesterday Aand the ; lowly
Coon Creekers romped off with the
first clash of the four-game series,
6 to 4. i
Cass started off the game by Seat
ing out an inficjd hit. This so en-
i touraged F.wofdt, , Shanley, Hunter,
Hartford, Murphy and Coffey that
' each and every one pried off a single.'
Five runs right off the bat. Wowl i
That settled the hash of Pa's Pets.
-'The Pets slapped the offerings of Mr.
, Drtssen thirteen times, but they
couldn't make 'em when they meant
runs which is a bum time to make 'em.
Woody Williams and Ben . Shaw
were the only Rourke performers who
were in the ball game yesterday.
Woody and Ben both connected for
four hits and if their teammates had
been in a similar mood this story
might have a different eliding. One of
; Woody's clouts was a triple and two
yere doubles.- Also Williams pulled
off a very sensational one-handed
catch insight field. '"',.'
No game today.

Phil Ball, owner of "the club, hurried
to Sportman'a park today to find some
of his players on the verge of re

as saying that some of the men were
"laying down" and that only .three
players Austin, Sisler and Severid
were giving the club -their best, serv
ices Ball faced the players it the club
house and demanded to know what
was the trouble." , -
"We want to know if the statements
credited to you are true?" one of
the players said, v "Jid you 'say we
wete laying down? Did you say you
would, cut salaries $100 for every
$1,000 you lost on the season?" -
Ball explained that he told the re
porter that some of his friends had
told him the players were laying
down, but that he (Ball) was not
competent to judge. He declared that
he meant what he said about the sal
aries cut. 1 ?I will pay for the kind of
ball I receive," he said. "That's fair,
I think you will agree.' ' V
