Inadvertently take a wrong View and thus get himself out of the position of publicity agent for the democratic party in this Community. Representatives of the Batesville Tribune accepted his invitation since no explanation of the democratic position on the league was Foi Tchoming from the Herald and listened with interest to or. Spaan s presentation of his and the democratic party s attitude on the league. Or. Spaan is a candidate for Congress from the seventh District and has won a reputation for himself As a Crini Inal lawyer so when a gentleman of his mental Caliper appears upon the platform his audience May expect to hear a logical discussion even though their views May not agree with his. A Fine audience composed largely of men greeted him and he held the close attention of the audience throughout his discussion of the league As this is the vital Issue of the Campaign and a subject in which All voters Are much interested. Many of those present had also attended the Watson meeting and consequently were in a position to weigh both aides of the question and to know just what Jim Watson said and what or. Spaan credited him with saying As he progressed in his speech. He began his address wet ii the state poot that War is no longer necessary. And to. The Man who says it is Niece Ary to development is a of said Tike Diw what of peace stands ? is he a liar when he says England can therefore because of this provision control 6 votes when Australia Canada new zealand India and South Africa her possessions each have a vote in the Assembly the charge of liar was made by or. Spaan and by the Herald against or. Watson. Let s have the proof. Did or. Spaan Ever hint in his address that a dispute might be referred to the Assembly or that the disputing nations had no voice whatever in the proceedings or that a majority vote might control in the Assembly where the British Empire could control 6 votes ? not a word. He did t try to explain this but merely answered the "6 to 1 vote Quot proposition by saying that the United states could control More votes than the Empire. He said we could control Cuba Hayti san Domingo Panama Costa Rica Guatemala and All the South american countries. These countries Are Independent while Canada Australia new zealand South Africa and India belong to the Antish Empire and hence great Britain could control them while our control of the Afore named countries on this Side of the Ocean is entirely problematical depending on the nature of the dispute to be settled and the uned states runs no chances. T next he discussed the Council an teaching corps filled the St. Paul baseball team accompanied by a Large number of fans came Down Here sunday and surprised nearly everybody who saw them play As Well As themselves by taking the locals into Camp the score being 5 to 2. Nieman did the twirling for Batesville but seemed to be out of form and he had practically nothing on the Ball in the first three innings when St. Paul secured eight of their thirteen hits and did nearly All of their scoring. After the third Kiemm pitched his usual Good game and Only run scored by the visitors after the third was due to an error. Fischer who did the pitching for the visitors must have carried a Horseshoe with him As he was twirling in Luck All afternoon. Our boys Toudie him up for fourteen hits including three doubles and hit him safely in every inning but the first and eighth but they were Able to score in but one innings the second. Under Ordinary circumstances the locals would have scored seven or eight runs on this Large number of hits but the Quot Breaks Quot seemed to go against them in this game. The visitors made two fast double plays one in the third and another in the fourth and they were Large factors in keeping the score Down As our boys were in the midst of a batting rally on each occasion. The game was interrupted several times by Quot rag chewing Quot Over the decisions of Umpire favors of St. Paul who seemed to favor his team on All close decisions and some that were not close. On two decisions in particular one at second and one at first his work was so poor As to raise the ire of nearly All the local players and Many of the fans in the stands. There is a treat in store for the fans next sunday when the Strong Arlington club comes Here for a double header with the locals. These two teams Are pretty evenly matched having met twice earlier in the season each team winning a game. Nieman and Moorman will do the twirling for the locals and every one of the Home players will be seen in action in one of these games. The Eureka band will give a concert during the afternoon. The. First game starts at 1 30 and the second will Start immediately after the first game is finished. Be sure to see these games and enjoy an afternoon of real fast baseball. Greensburg comes Here sunday oct. 3, which will no doubt wind up the season on the local Diamond. Summary Batesville Lightner cf.4 a a. Wernke.1 Weigel 3b.3 , 2b.2 j.
