There will be two games between the
Senators nnI the Colonels this afternoon
The first one will lie called at 2 o'clock
sharp. The Senators will go to battle
again fully banged up, but they promise
an Interesting game at tli.it.
Crooks is hardly fit to play, but he Is
anxious to do the best he can to help the
home team alone, ami has volunteered to
work In both games.
Mercer and Jack had a talk this evening.
I'll tell J on what I'll do. Jack," said
the former. '-If jou will go in I'll agnti
to pitch both games and will beat those

SORK AT BOSWELL.
Manager Sihiuclz was considerably work
ed up this morning over the conductofBos
well "He promised faithfully to be here on
Monday," said the manager, "but didn't
come, wiring that he would surely be here
on Thursday. When that time rolled around
Boswell again failed to turn up, and nothing
has been seen or heard of him since, and
now he don't need to trouble himself about
coming. We don't -want him. In my Judg
ment, Gilroy is a better pitcher than Bos
well, and we can utilize him "
Scblebeck is 011 his feet to-day, but there
is little prospect of his getting into the
game soon. Tom Brown's finger was not
hurl as badly as it looked to be yesterday,
and, barring a little stiffness, will be all
right for work this afternoon
SCHMELZ IS HOrErUL.
Manager Schmclz thinks the Senators
have a pretty good show to move up a few
pgs In percentage to-day and Monday. It
is looked upon as a foregone conclusion
that Baltimore w ill beat the Browns, and
there is n good chance for the Senators to
beat the Colonels, notwithstanding their
.badly broken up condition. On Monday
Labor Day Baltimore and St. Louis will
play two games.
If the weather is good, the Senators and
Colonels will also play two games on Mon
day, nnd on Tueeday the same clubs are
scheduled for another double header.
Jim"McGulre, It will thus be seen, has a

Baltlmorc, Aug. 31, George W. Burn

for Chicago to-night, where he will In the
future give his undivided attention to his
three tioot-blacklng parlors.

game and umpiring," said Mr. Bumham.

long as this continues the umpires im

must be upheld.
"In my short Berice on the staff I have
had trouble in Boston and Brooklyn. When
I sent Tommy Tucker to bench, Conant held
up his hands lu holy horror, and told me
such n thing had never tieen heard of before.
Then, In Brooklyn, when I rerved Manager
McCloEk"y, who was on the coach line, in
the enme way for offensive criticism, and
followed it up by taking McDcrmott out of
the box, there was a big howl.
"An umpire must be firm and never
change a decision. If he does so he com
mits professional suicide. In the umpire
business a man has more chances to make
mistakes than in any other work I know of,
yet he must never admit he's in the wrong."
Speaking of the Baltimore club. Mr.

"Times are not like they used to be for
boxers," said big Billy Woods to a Times
man yesterday. "A few jears ago a boxer
witb anything like a good reputation could

were not as numerous then as they are
now. You can rind them by the score every

their services is eagerly grabbed at. "It
is only the best of them who are wanted
by good clubs now, and at that the money
hung up Is not what It was a few yeais
ago. About five years back I held an en
gagement here at Kcrnan's. I was meeting
all comers, and my salary was $500 a week.
That was but one of mauy Jobs of thebame
sort that I held during my earlier boxing
Joe Lyons, wbostated through The Times
yesterday that he was readj to meet any of
the boxers here at 133 pounds, is a dear
eyed, healthy-looking young fellow, who
acts and talks as though he meant Just
what be said, and it Is not improbable that
if he is given a chance lie will rendcragood
account of himself. Lyons is built on the
racehorse order, though he is apparently
well knit and strong. He looks as though
but little work would be needed to put him
in good fix.
There was talk around the Eureka Club
headquarters yesterday about a finish gd
between Jack Daly and Mike Leonard. The
latter was seen at Kernau's during the
afternoon and expressed willingness to

There was also talk about a match being

friends who went around to the newspaper
offices and told the story that was pub

got Into print. I didn't rush around to get
any statement published about it.
"The papers have keen fit to try to make

Important concessions ever gained by an
