However be had a very close Call. Williamsport is honestly dissatisfied at the treatment handed them by Monticello in Sundi b game at Bak it seens llo ucello has lost its Seizun of sportsmanship and fallen Difato he win at any Price policy. The fast that the score is in favor of Mont iniello quot to the tune of 13 to 6 is not to their credit Ais they absolutely repudiated their contract and resorted to my it ship tactics to gain in advantage. The local team is not disgruntled because they do not acknowledged feat. They simply ask for fair play and a Chance to meet Monticello on Neutral ground in a contest presided Over by impartial umpires. If Monti cello accepts the. Challenge and agrees to play tie same men on the team As they had sunday the local team will do the same and will meet any Wager the enemy May Namee. The difficulty in enforcing the terms of the contract in sunday s game is that it was made via Long distance phone but was thoroughly understood and honestly entered into by the Home team. A Promise of $100 and 40 or 60 per cent of the Gate receipts was guaranteed by the manager of the Monticello team but when asked for the Correct amount manager by Ker claimed that there was a misunderstanding. Instead of the amount Promise so he offered $25 to the manager of our team which was flatly refused. Not Only did the team receive a crooked Deal financially but one of the umpires was either bought off or very partisan. Three times Williamsport had the bases filled but it was of no Avail for the Umpire called balls strikes on the latter and in every Way tried to retire our Side before it scored. It would be unfair to the Home team to roast them about their defeat As they really had a better team than Monticello but no to am can beat nine men and an Umpire.
