LYONS BASEBALLERS WIN AT ECHO LAKE'S CLAMBAKE
Every year the Echo Club of Clyde watches summer out and fall in with a big clam bake down the river below Clyde, and the members always invite their friends. This year it took five automobiles to take the Lyons guests down. The bake was a crackerjack, everybody says, but the real feature of the day was a ball game between Lyons and Clyde. Lyons won. Just how many innings were played and what the score was nobody can say, but everybody says Lyons won - that is everybody from Lyons. In Clyde no dought everybody thinks Clyde won. That would seem impossible, however, when one looks over the line-up of the Lyons ball team. Here it is:
Dan Mora, c; Henry Schreiber, lf; D.P. Chamberlain, p; Eugene J. Smith, 2b; William H. Mapes, ss; William H. Egan, cf; Jim McDermott, 3b; Ad. Calkins, rf; "Squeal" Young, 1b.
These regulars were in the first line trenches all through the three hours of battle. In reserve were Sheriff Valentine, Deputy Sheriff Jerry Collins, Private "Bling" Collins, U.S.A., and Karl Woehr.
Short Stop Mapes featured the game with his steady work in the field, and his home run created a near sensation. He hit the ball at the pitcher and it went through eight men, but he was around the diamond by that time.
John Hak, president of the Echo Club, master of ceremonies at the clambake, and chief of the Clyde Fire Department, added to his cares of life by undertaking to empire the game. The Post Office Department would bar this paper from the mails if we undertook to report one of a thousand of the "compliments" that was directed toward John.
BLAMES CROSSING FOR THREE DEATHS
Coroner George D. Winchell of Rose has filed his findings in the matter of the killing of Clarence Reed, William Connors and Margaret Ryan, in the town of Savannah September 5th, when the party was run down by a car on the Rochester, Syracuse & Eastern.
The coroner exonerates Motorman Irvin A. Clark, saying that he used all means to prevent the accident, and was in no way to blame. The coroner also in his findings states that the crossing where the accident occurred, in his opinion, is the worst one between Rochester and Syracuse, and advises the railroad officials to place a signal at this crossing.
