BASK ball OAWK A iii mmkk.
The ball game Sunday afternoon be-
tween the local team and the strong
Jones team of Muskogee, was the best
game that has ever been played on the
local diamond. It was a closely con-
tested battle throughout and althougn
the visitors wen' victorious it took
them eleven innings of the hardest
kind of fighting to turn the trick. The
final «core waa 5 to 2. Claremore
earned her two scores while the major-
ity of the visitors' scores were secured
Claremore scored one in the first in-
ning and neither side could count after
that until th' sixth when Claremore
pushed Storey across the plate for an-
other score. At this stage of the game
it looked like Claremore, but in the
eighth Muskogee secured her first score
and again in the ninth with two men
out. and two strikes on I.ee, the hard
hit'' r of the visitors; he lined out a
safe single scoring Meagher and tying
the score. In the tenth neither could
score, but in the eleventh a few errors
bunched with a hit and a pass aliowed
the visitors to count three men, cinch-
port to all questions affecting the int-
erest of the people of my state and I

railroad bill wrrrkrit.
The Taft-Elkins-Aldrich railroad bill
waa introduced to repeal the Sherman
Anti-Trust law respecting common
carriers. The 'railroads were to be
exempt from its provisions, and the
people were to be denied its protection.
These republican standpat leadera ex-
pected to ateal a march on the public,
but thedemocrata and insurgents of the
two houses have been doing some fine
team work, and Jt thia time there ia
nothing left of the railroad bill but the

however, is at this moment in New
York finding out from the railroada
what to do in thia dilemma.

in New York at from 23 to 28 cents a
pound. It is not the farmer who is re-

The wisdom and efficacy of a law
pasaed by Congress at the present ses-

JONESES BEAT CLAREMORE.
The R. M. Jones company baseball
team made a journey to Claremore
yesterday, and there took into camp
the strong aemi-professional baseball
team of that city. The game was one
of the best that was ever seen on the
diamond, and reaulted in a victory for
the Joneseys by a 5 to 2 score in 12 in-
nings. Dunlap was on the mound for
the Muskogee lads, and hi* pitching
was one of the most enjoyable features
of the game. He whiffed twelve of
| the Claremore team, in the sixth in-
ning with three men on bases and none I
down, he fanned the next three men. ,
The other features of the contest were '
the batting of Lee and the fielding of |
Meagher in center. Lee made five'
hits out of six times up, tieing the
game in the ninth with a single that
scored a run, and winning it in the
twelfth with a double that scored three
men. The results:

The game Saturday afternoon be-
tween the Preps and the Muskogee
High School team resulted in a victory
for the locals. The final count was 5 to
6 and was stubbornly contested through-
out. It wan a seesaw affair from start
to finish, several errors on both sides
contributing their share towards the
rungetting. The game was highly in-
♦eresting and shows that the preps with
a little mo:e practice are not a bad lot
by a long shot. They will go to Tahle-
quay this week for a return game with
the Seminary boys.
