II in GAME
Locals Lose Second Game of Season
to Fast Springfield Bunch
Score 8 to 7.
From Mo-iay's Dally.
In what was probably the fastest
game seen on the loral diamond this
season the Vlnita baseball team yes-
terday afternoon went down In defeat
before the douty Sprinfleld Frisco
squad of baseball chasers by harvest-
ing the short end of an 8 to 7 score.
The borne boys made a heroic effort
to wrest the laurels from their old-
time adversaries and It took eleven
innings to decide the contest but for
the second time this season were
compelled to acknowledge defeat at
too hands of what is conceded to be
decidedly the best team to visit Vin-
Ita. How the game was played:
There was nothing doing In the way
of run getting by either the visitors
or ltldenhour's colts until the last
half of the third Inning when Vinita
scored one after two men had been
put out. Chouteau hit a hot one to
short stole second and third bases
and scored on Dewes hit past first
Tanent next man up struck out.
In the visitors' half of the fourth
they took sweet revenge for the one
score made by the Vinitans by shov
ing five men over the'home plate. Af
ter one man had struck out. Thomp-
son gained first through an error by
the shortstop and scored on Moore's
hit. P. Myers struck out and Moore

scored on Dubuque's hit the latter I tlon which he keeps to himself. I come
scoring when Walters hit one to left
field fence the ball being recovered
by McClure In time to stop -the batter
at second. Murphy struck out W.
Myers hit safe scoring Walters and
came home on. a passed ball. Score
Vlnita 1 Friscos 5.
In the eighth inning the Springfield
boys added another score and It look
ed to the fans like it was all over but
the shouting. However the hone boys
got their second wind and scored two
runs In their half of this Inning by
a safe hit by Rallies a bunt by Wun-
letiick who was safe on first stole
second and third and scored when
Itagby knocked a long fly to center
and was caught out.
There was nothing doing for the
visitors In the ninth they being re
tired In one two three order. For
the Vinita team iindsay walked. Parks
got a clean hit that advanced Lind-
say to second and landed him on first;
McClure walked Lindsay was tagged
at third and Parks and McClure both
scored on Chouteau's hot one through
third. Chouteau scored on a passed
ball tying the score 7 to 7. Haines
fanned retiring the side.
The tenth was barren of results for
either side but In the eleventh inning
the visitors shoved the winning run
over the pan. It was a good game all
the way through with the exception
of two bad half Innings one for the
home team and one for the visitors.
Manager rtidenhour will try to have
the same team here for two games

Washington I). C June 12. Yes-j
terday was a bad day for t he finance
committee not from the standpoint of
votes for those always are ready
but from effective criticism. No soon-
er was Senator Cummins through w ith
his accusation that the committee w as
sure to destroy the republican party
than Senator LaFollette made a bitter
attack on the leadership of Senator
Aldiich had waited until certain
amendments offered by LaFollette to
the woolen schedule had been voted
down. Then he had explained to the
senate how ignorant the senator from
Wisconsin was of the woolen business
and how he had led his followers to a
vote for Indefensible proposals. They
would have difficulty in explaining to
the constituents Aldrlch asserted.
"The senator will have more diffi-
culty In explaining his votes" Clapp
"I shall have no explanations to
make to the people of Rhode Island
for my votes on this bill" Aldrlch re-
plied. This gave LaFollette his op-
portunity. "If what the senator from Rhode Is-
land says is true" LaFollette exclaim-
ed his voice Btlll hoarse from his long
speech of last week quivering with
anger "then his own words are an im
peachment of his leadership. For he
has refused to supply the Information
necessary for an understanding of this
bill. Hut with all his craftiness he
has produced nothing here that will
"I take him now as he would wish to
be taken as a man of vast Informa-
from a state where people demand a
reason for what their representatives
do. That is not the case with the
senator from Rhode Island. He
comes from a state where 11 per cent
of the voting population controls the
legislature that elects the senators
and where a senator wqa able to put
through the legislature a franchise for
an electric line for ninety-nine years.
Instead of encouraging men to trust
his leadership he has insulted or re-
buffed the men who sought In a legiti-
mate way to get information. The bill
stands alone with no explanation of
the changes made by the finance com-
mittee. There must be a reason. Con-
ditions have changed since the days
when competition stood ready to heat
down excessive prices that might find
shelter behind the tariff wall. That
Is not so in these days of monopoly.
"There is a special and particular
reason In the minds of some senators
and the people for the recent treat-
ment of the tariff bill. It brings up a
question with respect to the leadership
on the republican side. If duties are
to be maintained at the present high
standard with combinations prevent-
ing the people from having competi-
tion It Is just as well that the senator
from Rhode Island should put through
this tariff bill without discussion. Rut
the senator cannot with a legislative
trick Injure us with an argument ad-
vanced after the amendment Is dis-
The angry Wisconsin senator was
leaning lorward shaking his finger in
the direction of Senator Aldrlch who
.sat smiling through most of the
speech. Finally Senator Callingcr of
New Hampshire went over to the
Rhode Island senator. It was impos
sible to tell whether he was beckoned
to or went on his own initiative. When
he returned to his seat he arose to a
point of order demanding the rule to
be read which forbids senators from
impugning the motives of any senator.
He had never he said heard so many
charges as tluse implied In the speech
of the senator from Wisconsin. La
Follette admitted then that he had
transgressed the rule. But he called
attention to the fact that it was con
stautly transgressed and that organiz
atlon senators who had Impugned the
motives of the progressives had not
been called to account.
The vice-president ruled that the
language used was in conflict with the
rule and expressed the hope that here
after all senators would take care that
the rule should be observed.
The Income tax discussion w as post
poned as was expected until next Frl
day when Senator Aldrlch expects to
have the tariff schedules out . of the
way. Senator Italley accepted the
Cummins amendments fixing the tax
at 2 per cent Instead of three and pro
viding against double taxation of in
conies derived from corporations. Sen
ator Aldrlch hopes to be able to defeat
this with his proposal for a 2 per cent
tax on the dividends of corporations
P.ut neither he nor the opposition Is
certain of the outcome.

ancial conditions are conductive to a
good business year la the opinion of
Robert Schlberg cashier of the Guth-
rles National bank In a statement
on banking matters issued locally yes
terday. During the last eighteen
months he says the situation has
passed from one extreme to another.
While in January H8 currency was
scarce forcing institutions 10 reson
to issuance of scrip within the year
the supply has Increased until a ple-
thora of unemployed capital is found
In every monetary center.
"As the Interest rate always de
pends upon the supply of available
money" Mr. Sohlherg says "the In-
terest rate has gone to the lowest
point during recent years and yet
even witu this low interest rate me
banks are carrying large epiantitlcs
of currency In their vaujts and on de
posit In reserve banks."
What Is true of the country at
large Is also applicable to the Insti-
tutions of the southwest. Mr. Sohl-
"The healthy mean between the two
extremes which have existed in the
monetary market is now being await-
ed by all people who ure Interested In
the welfare of the country. An ad-
justment of monetary affairs Is being
earnestly sought by all business and
banking interests. Congress has ap-
pointed n monetary commission
which is working zealously on the
situation. It is collecting data from
various sources In order to reach a
conclusion as to the proper legisla-
tion which should be passed. The
Influence of this commission la being
felt everywhere. All financial legisla-
tion s being referred to It. An ex-
ample of the commission's activity
occurred w hen on th 28th day of
April 190!) reports were called for by
the controller of the currency and the
state banking departments of every
state In the Union. This meant that
for the first time In the history of the
United States every bank and trust
company made sworn statements on
the same day.
"The prospect of an abundant har-
vest Is also having Its Influence upon
the financial situation. The effects of
'winter killing' which Is the largest
element of determining the volume of
the agricultural products of the coun.
try are known as at the present time.
The experience of bankers through
out the country during the past years
affords the assurance that August will
bring a large demand for ready funds
In order to move the crop now ma-
turing In the fields of the great west
and south. This demand will confine
strong until the 1st of January at
least and in anticipation of this cle-
mand the money market Is growing
stronger and more certain.
'When all things nu Carefully
weighed in connection with Ut finan-
cial situation theie is every prospect
of a prompt return to the good times
which this country has had with the
exception of the recent depression for
the lust twelve years. There is every
prospct of unusually good prices for
farm products and fair wages for la-
bor. A dlsjHiskion !s shown on the
part of all business men to ac t upon
the optimistic side of the situation
and do their part in creating active
business com! It Ions."

pauper faninles; of one-third the
ther or mother was dead and of moree
than one-half the father or mother
was Intemperate. Out of the hundred
one-fourth of the so-called truants at
the expiration of their term In the

we are learning and recording the ex
