that Murphy, Titus and Cabanne can ride

that 'no prizes that they may win shall be

mlle world's record at Springfield will no
doubt bring John S. Johnson to the front
agalu. Johnson held this record before
Slarbuck got it. and he is not likely to lay
down and not try to regain it. Star

Johnson can lower this mark, and when

(Special to The Times. )
Philadelphia. Sept. 14. The first game
of ball between Ihe WiisMngUii and Phila
delphia teams will be called at 2 o'clcck.
The weather Is fine and a large crowd
Is expected and e Senators' stock is
n way up since Ihey were able to defeat
Brooklyn two straight In one afternoon.
The Senators expect to get atlcust one
of the two games to-day, and say they
will repeat yesterday's "performance at
National Park if Ihey get a fair deal, but
Murray will umpire, and HuTt will be a
Manager- Schmclz will pitch ills new
"phenom," Molrsworlh, In the first game
and lioswcll or Uoyd, or both, in the sec
ond. McGuire will do the catching, and! with
Ihe end or the second game will have
back-stopped bis llUth consecutive" con
test Of the present season. He now holds
the world's record as u catcher, havi
passed by several games the famous mart
made by Zimmer, of Cleveland.
Abbey's throw to Joyce of Shlndle's hit
to right In the first game, which retired
Griffin at third, was a beauty, that set, not
only the bleachers, but everybody" else to
howling with delight. Tlie ladles went into
ecstacl-si and applauded Charley vigorously.
It was by long odds the neatest and prettiest
play of the game.
Stein seemed to be about as much of a
hoodoo to Tom Brown as Mercer was to La
Chance, though Tom took his medicine with
more fortitude. Stein struck Tom out twice.
It has been many a dav since a pitcher
has put up better work in Washington than
Mercer did yesterday. He was as cool,
collected and dignified as a court Judge,
and the way hemystlned those Bridegnsim
wasa wonder to behold. Such ball as Mercer
pitched yesterday would have hypnotized
any club la tbe League.
Murray did not wholly escape criticism In
Ihe first game yesterday, but he did not
commit any grievous mistakes. Hit calling
of balls and strikes now and then seemed
lo impress the crowd as being tinged with
yellow, but he gave one side no advantage
over the other in this respect, and on the
whole, his work was good.
Crooks put up a nice game yesterday. He
went after everything that looked his
way ami got It, and his work did much to
win both victories.
Moleswortb. the young Virginian, that
turned up ot the park a day or two sicce
awl asked to be tried as a pitcher touted
the liali around bawcen games yesterday,
aist Immediately marvellous storirs almit
him began to be be told. One was that In
a game a rew days ago he struck out
twenty two men. und that In another,
afterward, he bad struck out sixteen men.
Another story was that he has lieen play
ing all season and that he has not yet
been struck out. and that he has made a
liomc run about every other time he has
wielded the tiat. If Molcsworth Is as good
as these stories he will prove a valuable
riisl, I ndrcd.
Pop Alison has a sbow ror his $3,000
worth or bets yet.
The work ot the Brooklyn outfield yes
terday was villainous In spots. Shock and
Grlfrin played like a pair or wooden men.
They were a little more animated, but
scarcely more brainy.
Tlie two wins yesterday by tbe Senators
and the defeat ot the Browns, by Cleve
land gives the home team" a lead over
St.iLouls of about twenty points. Yester
day they were only rive points.

The Brook! n's big baseman, La Chance,
seemed to have the horrors about every time
he went" to bat in the first came yesterday.
He would let a strike or twobe called on him
and then make a feeble swish at the ball
and retire. He could do nothing against
Mercer, and would walk away with an air
ot reller when he was declared out.
