Valparaiso, Ind., April 12.—The Chinese revolution and the Mexican rebellion are mild forms of amusement compared with what this town went through last night. And it all started with a harmless little game of baseball started by a few students of Valparaiso university.
It was a good game, and quite interesting to watch, and probably there would have been no argument about it had not the students selected the main street of the city for a diamond.
[Police arrested the team captain and] what Sherman said war was, broke loose. Three thousand students stormed down town; drove the police and fire departments outside the town limits; smashed windows, fired revolvers; bumped innocent citizens on the bean, and generally behaved like a healthy bunch of London suffragettes.
They smashed the theater furniture, and had a dickens of a good time all over the town until they got tired and went home to their beds.
Police questioned Bojo, Magic, Butch, and Radar, but no arrests were made.
