Lat Saturday a game of ball was
played In this city between the Liberty
team and the Lebanon. It would
probably have been an Interesting
name had it been finished. But the
Liberty boys, owing to a misunder
standing, at the end of the fourth
Inning, refused to finish. The score
stood 7 to 8.

Wednesday the Oak Creek boys met
the Lebaunns on the diamond in this
city for a match game of ball. The
Oak Creeks came to the bat first and
the game was a hotly contested one
from beginning te end but the Leb
anons came out easy winners with a
core of 27 to 82 at the end of the
st half of the ninth inning.
Lebanons show a marked
i,u.ir practice, but they played a

Alex. Brewster deserves especial
mention for the manner In which he
held down first base and the fly catches
he made in the game. Geo. Elkins
did flue work in the box, and as for
shortstop, no amateur can beat Ed
Aldrich, J. B. Marks made some fine
high-Jump catches, and Henry Smith
did fine work in running bases.
One particular thing that ought to
be shipped In this city, is the noise
that is made by spectators. It was al
most a continuous roar during the en
tire game, and was enough to "rattle"
an iron man. Thore can be nothing
gained by such prooeedure, and cer
tainly It Is very annoying to those who
are not inclined to be boisterous while
witnessing a game of base bull. If it
is continued, it will become a uuisanoe
to the city and complaints to the city
council will undoubtedly be made. It
is no part of good ball playing an d ncr
tnau can play good ball while such an
unnecessary noise Is kept up. Lot us
U.'tve good ball and less noise, and be
abreast with other towns of the valley.
Henry H. Vroom was born at Marilla
Erie Co., Now York, May 81 1838.
Died at Lebanon, Ore. May 31 1894,
early In the morning of his 66tb au-
ulversery. The deseaBed was left an

n lumbering for several years. In
1864 he came west and eugaged In
mining In Idaho. Subsequently he
removed to Marlon oounty, Oregon

hlngles. In 1883 In company with
Ills brother Ellzah B. Vroom, he trans
ferred his interests to Linu oouuty and
continued the shingle Industry, erect-
ng a shingle mill at Cedar Flat. In
1801 they moved their mill to its pres
et location. Henry, as he was known
to all, was of a modest disposition , of
m extremely uuselfiah nature, living
ind laboriug for others rather than for
himself. Kind and courteous to all
frank and honorable in all his dealiugs
of an Irreproachable character, he has
left many friends to sinoerely niouru
his uutlmely death. lie had suffered
for some time from valvular disease of
the heart, aud at last was compelled to
jive up his laborB at the mill, and was
brought down to the residence of J. W.

The fire was discovered about 11:15
last night in the Valley View hotel
which was built about three years

owned and managed by W. R. Hard-

building. It was insured for only

Adjoining the hotel building was
