TENTH VICTORY. The Pottsville - Wilke6barre Team Easily Easily Vanquished In Good Game. Those who saw the Pottsville - Pltts - ton game of basket ball in Kirby's hall last evening witnessed one of the fastest fastest games of the season. The game was to have been with the regular Potts - vllle team, but It is said that all but two of this team failed to catch the train at that city, and consequently three of the Ninth regiment team played in their places. Scheetz and Dodge played well for Pittston, the former preventing the renowned Tag - gart from throwing a single basket. Swaying, said to be one of the best center men in the State, was also powerless, powerless, as Blackburn guarded him closely. Anthony and McGuffle both played good games at forward. The line - up was as follows: Pittston Anthony Anthony and McGuffle, forwards; Dodge, center; Scheetz and Blackburn, guards. Pottsville Swaving, Potts - ville, and Taggart, Wilkesbarre, forwards; forwards; Whltehouse, Pottsville, center; Keller and Haas, Wilkesbarre, guards. Baskets In play, McGuffle 6, Anthony 1, Blackburn 1, Whitehouse 2. Thrown on fouls, McGuf&e Taggart 2, Kel - lar 1, Swaving 1. Referee and umpire, William Francis; timekeepers, J. Francis O'Neill and John Voigt.
