Bt. Oeoboi, Mar 80. Memorial Day in tho
afternoon and tho second came of t ha dr be
tween the Oiants and Hooslers.
I The morning gamo was not inch as the pat
rons of the New Yorki are accustomed to aee
them pnt up.
If Hatfield had been properly supported in
the field he would hare won the same; but tho
ficldwork of the Giants was at times of a very
listless, not to tay lazy sort, and their errors
were sandwiched in with thoir opponents' hits.
Those fond hearts therefore that hoped for
four straight were disappointed.
One short half hour before tho time for the
afternoon same to begin, everything on and
and about the srounds was as lovely as a Bum
The sun sbono warmly, the breezes were soft
and uncertain, tho sky had just that tinge of
dark blue running into the lighter that the eyes
of a ball-player love to dwell upon.
Small boys ran riot over the diamond, chasing
impossible dies knocked from the player'
Tho reporters, refreshed by a hearty lunch
tendered them by Manager Mutrie, were in cen
tre field, unconsciously imitating the small boys
in front of the stand. ',
The grand stand was fillod to overflowing with
its expectant human freight and the bleacheries
were well flocked by people.
Then all of a sudden a ohange occurred.
A few fresh puffs of air, a quick appearing
aloud and then fast falling drops of water put a
damper on the whole outfit.
The players fled for shelter, some to the club
house, while others improved a cabin or lean
to by placing boards at angles up against tho
fence in centre field. .
The oooupants of the bleacheries, for the most
part, fled from their rain-struok resting-places
and suddenly became empowered with an over
whelming desire to swell the coffers of the home
club by contributing 25 cents for tho sake of
crowding the grand stand.
The shower lasted for fifteen minutes and
then at the stroke of the GlanU' practice bell the
clouds, aa if pulled by strings worked by Man
ager Mutrie, poshed apart and allowed a strug
gling and suffering sun to get in its work on the
wet grounds and the outraged feelings of the

The Shamrock and Titania were early on the
scene, v. ith mainsails shaking in the breeze aud
both tugging at their anchors. Tbe Titania was
in charge of ('apt. Haff, of Volunteer fame,
while Capt. Smith carried out tho directions
given him by Mr. Maxwell.
When waiting for tho mist to clear away the
