TWO SI'LEXDIJ) (JAMES. Opeuiug of the AwHocintion Grounds Home ClnbH Farntah Koyul Ble BoHtoiiH Capture the Greatest of All on Xorthtvood'H Shut norlands Win a Crown of Glory. Certainly no better game of base ball, none more intensely interesting, and in the closing innings, none more ex- citing was ever played in this region than that of the norland's against the Big Boston last Friday on the new grounds in this city. That they are both crack clubs is now admitted at home and abroad, but the Hovland's have had credit for containing better players, and so the general expectation was that they would easily win. Both clubs, however, had plenty of enthusi- astic backers, and at the call of Umpire Wilkinson to "play ball" there an anxious interest among the respective partisans as to every anticipated move. Owing to objections to Duryea being allowed to play with the Jioston's, which he was finally allowed to do, all bets were declared off, and the game commenced with the Boston's utthe bat. They scored a goose egg; the Hovland's followed with one tally, and then were compelled to yield to the Boston's, who astonished everybody with a run of eight. This proved to be a hoodoo for the Hovlands, for they only laid goose eggs in their live next innings. In the lit'th inning the Bos- tons made two more, and this was their last, for in the four last efforts they failed to score a run. Tha Hovlands rallied in the three last innings and scored three, one and four, and it looked as though they were playing on their second wind with victory in the air. "With one tally more needed to tie the score, however, Zook sent a fine rlyer into the left field which Duryea embraced and their game was up. But it was mighty exciting and was alto- gether a very pretty game. Notable plays were made by Opsahl, an over-the-fence home run, Morgan, Barrageri, iiuryea and Hayes, and both batteries did exceptionally line work. Another game will be played by these popular home clubs a little later in the season, and they will be sure to draw an admiring crowd. Following is the score: IIOVLAIOI MKK. CO.

Time of Umpire Wilkinson. HOYLAND MERCANTILE CO. VS NORTH- WOOD. There have been some good games in Albert Lea and neighboring cities but there never has been a really great game until the Hovlands met the Xorthwoods on the association grounds in this city last Monday. It was cer- tainly wonderfully well played and was equal to most of those recorded by the league chibs. It is very rare that so excellent a club as the Xorthwoods is shut out, but that was the fate meted out to them, the score standing 6 to 0 in favor of the Hovlands. Each club had a remarkably strong battery, "Wil- liams of the Xorthwoods being consid- ered by many the equal of Harkness, who pitched for the Hovlands, but the catcher of the latter club was the great man of the game, his work being sim- ply faultless. Opsahl did great work; he scored an-over-the-fence, home-ran hit, taking two men home with him, and Briggs made as fine a play in the right field as was ever seen on a diamond field. Standing far back he caught a fly, sent it through the long stretch to the catcher who put a man out with it in the nick of time. It was brilliant and made him a hero of the game. The score is as follows: HOVLAJfD MKB. CO. SiPIA Lowry, 2b.... Blake, c..... Sherd, H) Lloyd, ss----- Harknese.p. Morgan, 11__ Briggs, rf.... Totals..... 32 06 03 04 27 14 NOKTHWOOll. Davey.c.....

There was a big crowd in attendance, Xorthwood having sent a large delega- tion, and a more enjoyable game was never witnessed in the state. Mr. Hovland is entitled to much credit for his enterprise in arranging the game, and deserves thanks of every lover of the noble game for his splen- did management and success in origi- nating the plans for the season's sport, and for his liberality and heartiness in contributing to its maintenance. It is a good advertisement for his house, and it pays, but he is not animated alone by that idea; he is public-spirit- ed, generous, and is always ready to promote, any worthy enterprise that will redound to the credit of Albert Lea, and furnish genuine enjoyment to her citizens. The next games will occur to-day between the Hovlands and the Forest City club at Lake Mills, and between the liig Boston and Noithwoods at Northwood. Many have gone to those towns from here to witness the games. On the llth the Hovland's will play the liockford's during the excursion, and it promises to be a capital game. The gate receipts at the first game were close to 835, and at the second 843, the admission in both instances being 15 and 10 cents, ladies free. The grounds are yet in poor condi- tion and are likely to be until it rains or they are sprinkled and rolled. They are destined to be the scene of many more good games and of plenty of line sport before the season closes. ELECTRIC What IM Proposed in Our Sister Offered Two Thous- and Camlle-Pouer Arc Lamps to Kun All Meht at a Year Each Cannot Albert Lea Do As Austin Democrat. The Electric Light Co. has submit- ted to the council a proposition to furnish 15 arc lights, rated candle power each, to bum all night, for the period of one year, for the sum of SI 000, or for each light. They are to be placed in different parts of the city; and regarding the rate proposed, it is very low, in comparison with the prices paid by other cities. AVe have the Kochester Post of last week in which were published the propositions submitted by different companies for 2000 candle power arc sheet lighting, and we make the comparison below: Rochester Light and Fuel Co............... N. W. Electric Co., St. Paul........ (ieo. 11. Wedge, Kochester.......... 100 Austin Electric Light Co...................... Our citizens had a good opportunity to see the workings of the arc lights during the encampment, and all must agree that they are vastly superior to the kerosene lights. In fact our pres- ent lighting system is a failure. The street lights act as a faint glimmer to see the surrounding darkness by. Where the electric light is a brilliant penetrating light, the little fire-bugs on the corners throw out their faint rays only about four yards. If you figure the actual candle power furnished by the lights now used and compare it with 15 power electric lights, you will find that the city is pay- ing several times as much per caudle power for the kerosene lamps as the are lights would cost. .Some might be inclined to kick on the additional cost to the city of the electric lights over the present ones, and the consequent increase of taxes. Our present expense for lighting the city is from 8700 to 8850 per year. The electric light which will illuminate tne city much better, would cost Xow figure it up and see what your proportion of additional tax would be on 8150 to 8300 per year. It is such a very small matter that no man with common sense would ever rake it up as an argument. It is too small to talk about. THE CITY SCHOOLS.
