The Bancroft boys had not agreed to play the world and place & fence aroutid It fof Swea City, especially as it was for money, but thought, oven if they were defeated, they would have more glory than Swea City If they put up a good game of ball. The Bancroft boys wade five scores, white' washed the combination twice, and Per* kins made a home run. they played a stiff and nervy game throughout, although they knew they would go down to certain defeat. The combination had only 16 scores to their none and two men Were put In the 9th Inning when a pretty fly ball was hit at McLaughlin, who had a cinch on it when Palmer ran into htm -and knocked, the ball out of his hand. After this, in the same inning. Forest City m&do 11 scores on Palmer's pitching, Which mad& their lead a pretty long one, The Bancroft boys offered to play their ;own men against a straight Swea City nine for any amount, but the Swoa City captain dl<? not want tO'be interviewed on the subject but took his money and hied himself ,tpthe northwest, hdteVeristdppJttgto'tako In the band concert. The Bancroft boys only lost 126, and had gate receipts enough to pay expenses, but we presume Swea City was not so fortunate, for they had to pay cold cash for their imported players.
