The hall game to be played at Globe tomorrow between the Globe and Miami teams promises to be a more spirited contest than the onesided affair lie re last Sunday. The local team has been strengthened materially during the past week by the acquisition of three new players and it is hoped that at least one of ■the numerous players .for whom the management is still angling for will reach town tonight prepared to take part in the game tomorrow. Fuller, Bennett and Hearn are the names of the new players secured during the past week. All of these men have had considerable experience in fast company and should be able to stop some of the gaps in Miami’s lineup. Bennett is the old-timer of the trio, having played five years in the major leagues before going to Vancouver of the Northwestern league, where lie put in five more years. Last year he played with Aberdeen. Fuller Is a product of the Cotton States league, where he played for several years. The last two years he played iu the Western Tri-State. Hearn lias considerable reputation as a ball player in western baseball circles. Last year his good work having come to the notice of the management of the Sacramento club of the Coast league, he was signed by that club and played a number of games with them. Tennant, who made his first appearance in Miami in last Sunday’s game, is better known throughout the middle eastern states than in the west. He has played in various minor leagues in that section and last year was a member of the Lud-ington team in the Michigan State League. The lineup for tomorrow’s game has been “doped” out by Manager Brown as follows:    Hearn, ss; Ben nett, 2b; Tennant, If; Guynup, lb; Felts, cf; Fuller, rf; Ramos, 3b; Taylor, c; Johnson, p. A letter has been received by Manager Brown from the manager of the Army team at Camp Douglas, requesting that a game be arranged to be played with the team here on August 23. The Army team is to play Hayden, llay and Superior on the trip they are now making through the state and as they have that date still open would gladly come to Miami if arrangements can be made. Manager Brown states that if the Miami merchants would agree to close their places of business during the hours of the game in order to give their employes a chance to attend the game the receipts would probacy be more than enough to cover the guarantee asked by the Army team. A canvass of the business houses will be made early next week to ascertain if such a proposition is favorably received. MARKET QUOTATIONS (Furnished by Broker J. A. Wilson, of Globe.) Bid.
