League as Schedule Nears Close.
After a week of freedom tha tour teaau eoa-
PiUdi the Rallroao' Bowline Infoe tpt the
Young Man's Onrlatleo Association will coatlaee
their ibarp competition on toe allryi of the
aasodatloo tonlfht. Tbere Is aver Isdlcatloa
that there will be a more thao ordinary In-
tereat ahown bv tbe bowlers la their game
tonight because of tbe end of the schedule being
oalv a week away. Despite tbe fact that the
Orioles are a Terr rood team and hold a rather
comfortable lead over tbe other teams of tbe
league there la a fair chance that tbelr over-
throw maj be accouipllabed In the remaining
ail gsmee to he bowled. The 8 unset team has
been rolling mightily of late and must bo con-
sidered as a serious contender for champlon-
ahlp honors. Tbe Owls snd Hustlers while prac-
tically down and out In tbe race may yet spring
a surprise on tbe two leading; aggregations to-
night. Tbe bowling will start at7:4o o'clock
and all vlaltnra are cordially Incited to attend.
On alleys 1 and 3 tbe Sunsets will clash with
tbe Owla team. It la a fair assertion to make
that this will develop into one of the fiercest
conflicts ever fought out locally In tbe optilar
game of bowling. True tbe Munerts are strong
not no are tbe Owls when tber feel fit and
steady. Ho far this fast outfit have howled an
erratic game low one game sud wonderfully
high the next. If Captain Crtmuilns ' can keep
bia team together for a few lileli scores tonlgbt
the death knell of tbe Hunnets might yet he
sounded. At any rate the Owls will put forth
all of their available skill to do it. and If they
aucceed they will hare performed a stunt for
which they will be deserving of great honors
In days to come.
The Orioles snd Hustlers will bowl on sllevs
2 aud 4. The furmer team Is worthy of much
credit for tbe successful manner in which they
bsve routed the best teams of the league. They
have been the only team to put the larkneta
of defeat around the Hunset team which sites
4o slmw tlist tbe Orioles crowd Is certain to be
present when the turkey in served. t'aptaln
Martlu has succeeded in strengthening his team
by a special ainnunt of extra practice so It
Ken without ssyliig that his bunch will be
