BY GUS MALBERT.
Petersburg, Va., September 6.?What little advantage Heinie
Busch gained by defeating Roarioke in the Jirst game of the pen
nant-deciding series yesterday wj? lost to-day, when Pressiey
copped the second, holding the Goobers scoreless while he was
pushing two oi his warriors around the horn.
So far as the series is concerned, the two club* stand to?
night just where they did before the Tiger* began the last in?
vasion of Gooberviile. The two games to-morrow will decide, and
the Goobers are now force,1 to extend themselves in order to take
both ends of the double-barreled entertainment.
Though given a ball game which should send every spectator
home in a pleasant irame oi mind, things are tipt quite as jubilant
over here to-mgiu as they were yesterday. Not that the populace
has quit. M?st ?f the loyals are il 1 firmly impressed that Busch
can deliver the calico regardless of anything. The more sober
minded are willing to concede that Roanoke ha? a chance. As
for Bu.-ch, he is determination itself, arid will never be convinced
that he hasn't the very best ball club in any class "C" minor
league In this country.
The truth ot tlie matter is that
the two clubs are as nearly evenly
matched as two clubs can well be.
As lias been hinted by us bei >re,
the breaks are what will count.
Certainly Petersburg is not nearly
so much of a favorite as Peters?
burg was last night after winning
the first game. Then it looked
as if a hitting stride had been
struck by the champs which woulJ
throw consternation into the hos?
tile camp. To-day that same
sticking quality was missing.
Though, the Goobef? outlilt Koarioltu
by one blnglc, lamping the box score
one finds that no two ot the eight
came together, while nearly every one
ot the lioauuko swats were delivered
at the proper moment,
Jap lillrd didn't really outpltch
?aiiy Crleger as much as thu victory
makes It appeal'. The one advantage
Which the visitor had was that he was
steadier in the piit,ciics. Both \vore
as true ot aim and as sure-lire- as the
proverbial eight-day clock. It started
out la Whirlwind style and kept up
the pacu every minute.
There is no question but that both
clubs aru tceHon tlie strain. lioth
Busch and Pressloy are after the men
the moment the game 1 is ov<Jr, and
neither manager is satisfied until ?.< r
tain tliut Iiis uhurgta tiro safely
titcked away under the covers shortly
ufttr the white light burn.- Thilt'? why
the men are un edgd and why they
tre Able to give the battles witnessed
in these llrit affairs.
Excursion from Boanokr,
But if the players are seated on the
anxious bench, the Support? rs are even
more to. Wo had pleasure of list?
ening to the Goober din yesterday and
to-day, and we could alniost hear tlie
quivering and trembling of the Boa

But back to the ball game, Roanoke ,
looked aa much better than Peters?
burg to-day as Petersburg looked bet-'
t>.r than Roanoke yesterday. Some-1
how or other Busch's men -.^il to look I
their best on th< paths. They clout1
good and bond and get In. but stagger
along the lines until some wining
Hanoke d. fender comes along with tho
lall und tag:. Hum out. Another con?
tributing cause of the defeat was a
.-tiung tendency to hit at the first ball
6v?r Instead of walling out at least
one. Tbl? was particularly true in
the earlier Innings when Bflrd was a
bit wobbly. He pulled out of one or
two bad places by the overanxlety on
the part of tho CJoobtts to smite the
leather, offering at the liiti one tossed
over. The opposite was true In the
latter singet. Jap had recovered and
had as tnucii control as a Tammany
.?!... Ilaln. l"llldlnn that Busch had in?
structed his men to look over the, rtist
one Jap started grooving the tlrst
ball and had the baiter in the hole
beton he aiurted. It was just a:-, ex'1
chance Of strategy With itoanoku out
g ut bsI Pctt i? urg.
The TigerS piled the game open with
a run. That one run grew larger und
larger until at the end It was quite
enough to Win. Graham was the
lucky youngster. He caught Howedell
llatfdoted on Ills bUnt and easily
ui at it out. Buck Pressley kill
10 Busch hut Graham had too big a
'.-.id to be I:. aded and so Pressloy d:.d
at tirst. Instead ot Chubby Green,
t'rcsSiuy had in left Joe Holland, Jusi
from ii spell ot sickness und It was
Joe's pig RlUb which scored the run
after Glnn had Down to Qinn in centre.
Jot hit the tlrst bail over too. It
Sailed to left centre, giving Graham
time to spaii- counting from second.
A Gcbher opportunity came also In
the opening frame. Lester Simmons,
starting Jutl us lie did yesterday, heat
his tup at Shields. Unfortunately,
however, Morrison hit straight at
EnTd and gave the opening for nn
e i ly double play, which was com?
pleted. Simmons being forced at sec1
or.'., and the hitter retiring at first.
At that stage of the game, with a
start In sight, the double certainly

By the noon hour the large grounds
wero packed to their fullest capacity.
The horse show events, in the hunt?

good, and elicited the usual enthuslusm

the llrtlt to enter tho ring. This pa?
rade represented, and well represented,
the history of Vlrglnlu In every epoch
from its earliest settlement to the
present era. The display was finely
conceived and beautifully worked out
Then came Uppervllle with a larger
