hix innings M. A C. was unable to score,
eo effective was Nichols for the District

runs on yellow fielding, combined with a hit
to left field whicli was badly Judged. The

The Yv'ashin.gtons will conclude their at

Baltimore, commencing this afternoon, at
4:30 o'clock-also play tomorrow and
Thursday, the Senators will open their
tour or the middle West, at Pittsburg, and
will then go to Cleveland, Chicago,
St. Louis, Louisville, and Cincinnati, In
succession, making a total of eighteen
games rala or other unavoidable ex
Istencies not arihiug.
The series with Baltimore, to be in
augurated this artenioon, will allow the
local supporter i-f the club to get exact
lines on the team, and afrord an op
portunity or Judging what can be expected
of them on the Western trip.
Should they give the champions hard
rubs in the trio of games, whether they
win or not, hope will be revived, and there
will be anticipation of an even break n
the gimes o be contested on the settlng
sun side of the Alleglienles.
It is like threshing old straw and re
telling an oft repeated tale to hay that the
Scnatois' present trouble Is due entirely
to weakness with the bat. The pitchers
seem to be in good form, and the fielding
or the club ib gilt-edged.
And while not accredited as sluggers,
yet it is a fact that in O'Brien, Do-Montrevillc-.
Selbach, McGuirc, Farrell,
Mercer, Maul, Abbey and Brown, the team
Is composed of a consistent lot of bitters
and only need to focus their eyes on
the ball to drive it out rarely. This im
provement Is bound to follow, and perhaps
may become evident In the Baltimore
series, commencing this afternoon.
In the gunic this afternoon either Mercer
or Maul will be detailed on the rubber.
Should Mercer get the assignment he will
"pitch his arm off in the attempt to win
from Baltimore. It is a remarkable fact
that in the three years Mercer has posed
as one of the great twirlers of the League
and as often as he has been successful
against other clubs, not for one time has lie
defeated Ealtlmore, though he has gone
In against them as many as a dozen times.
He is confident of dispelling the hoodoo
this reason, and if he Is sent to the slab
this afternoon the Orioles will have trouble
and plenty of it.
Maul will certainly be used In one of
the games either this afstcrnoon or to
morrow. Al has practiced diligently while
the club was away and has pulled off a
lot of flesh as well as limbered up his
"salary arm," He says he feels per
fectly nt and Is ready to take his regular
turn on the rubber. He will accompany
the Senators on the Western journey.
There was a great deal of talk while
the Senators were in Boston or trades and
deals. One gossipy fan told The Times
that ho had it from the "inside" that
McGuire and Cartwrlght would bo ex
changed for Tucker and Tenny. That
Tucker would be placed at first base
and that Tenny would alternate with
Farrell behind the bat. It would be a
newsy story, if true; but it Is only
chronicled m this column In order to
afford the opportunity of saying that the
fan is entitled to "another guess."
In the past, or since the lengthening of
the distance from the pitcher's slab to
the home plate, It has not been the habit
of the League's twlrlers to show up
strong and effective in the early spring
games. There Is a remarkable exception
The youngsters, and even the veterans,
arc pitching July ball already and aie
giving the weak hitters barrels of trouble.
Whether this means a let down later re
mains to be seen.
The snowing thus far evidences- that
either the twlrlers have mastered the in
creased distance or that aware of the
fast class of ball demanded by the public,
have learned to take care or themselves in
lu this connection it will prove inteross
Ingto recall the length of service given the
respective League clubs by the pitchers
most prominent at this time.
"Adonis" Terry, of the Chicago team, is
the oldest pitcher in the League in point
of service. He began work in fast com
pany in 1684 and has pitched every year
since then in major organizations. Charlie
King and "Berry Wall' Maul are next In
rank, havlug fir.st played In fast company
in 18S7. King retired for two years, but
during that time he did not play in minor
league company, so that he may safely be
considered as a regular leaguer. Cunning
ham began In 18S8, and Dwyer, Rusic,
Stivetts, McMahon, Foreman, Sullivan and
Ehret belong to the crop of 1889. The
J following list shows In what year the J
pitchers who aro not new this year began

The Boston club, on starting on the

and field like a fiend. It is a strange con

"This is a question that I am unable to
answer accurately. From memory, how
ever, I wlil say that, as a rule, the
winner or a first fight generally van
quishes his opponent In a second en
counter." This is tantamount to saying

A Fan's Kind Words, for the Senators
To the Editor of The Times:
Now that the Senators have broken the
hoodoo spell by beating the Bostons Satur
day, It Is only reasonable to expect that
wltli encouragement from the ball fans
they will all get their eye on the ball and
line them out as they did last season, and
even better. I have attended nearly all
the games at the park for the past thtee
yeais, and it has been my observation
that the players or our team do nor, get
the encouragement Trom the ball fanswhlch
they deserve. For instance, if one of our
players makes an error or knocks a j-op fly
when a hit Is needed, the fans immediately
transfer their support and yells of en
couragement to the opposing club and
make ridiculous remarks against the Sen
ator who, In their opipion, have s'nned
beyond pardon. And If that home rooter
who is so quick to condemn, would think
for an Instant, surely his better Judgment
would tell him that the player so of rending
Is much more mortiried at his error over
his failure to make a hit than the public
can possibly be. For, as we all know, the
belter the mechanic the better his MUniy.
The same as to the ball player, wno is ever
trying to improve his value to his em
ployer that he may obtain more money
for his services. Therefore, he isr always
trying to do his best for his club The
season is very young yet, so ansc. turn
out strong to witness the games with the
Baltimores. Let us give the Senators eeiy
encouragement In our power, and if an
error Is rnade.instead of indulging In yells
of derision, give the home boys a yell to
go "at 'em." It is my opinion, with en
couragement from the ball fans, that the
Senators, finding they have the support
of the rooters, will go "at 'em" and bar
out many victories before the end or the
season. A. S. B.

HANLON, Lawyer, 1114 G st. nw.
in the parish hall, or the Bible class, which
a small number or the congregation attend,
the rector went out of bis way to assert
with vehemence that the negro who sweeps
out the Church (taking the pains to glvo
his full name) or any of his race had as
much right to occupy any part of that
church as anybody had: then went still
further out of his way to state- that somo
time ago a party of clergymen from New
York went, on a special occasion, to tho
Theological Seminary of Virginia and took;
a negro minister with them, who "was
given accommodations In the servants
quarters," und with virulence of look and
tone declared it to be "the most outrageous
and disgracerul act he had ever heard ot
In hislire." The rector was, or course, very
sure of his audience, there being not moro
than three or four Southerners present, and
the proportion of Southerners in the con
gregation being so small that the with
drawal of. them all would make- no appre
ciable difference in the size of it. As to
the vestryman named, Wylie a person
with whom I am not acquainted-and his
free and impudent comment on the private
act of another man's wife, which could
In no way Concern him. bis conver-ion to
the rector's views must be recent. Judging
from his assertion made iu the presence ot
witnesses the first time that a negro
preached in St Mark's, when a large num
ber ot negroes attended: "It was not us;
we had nothing to do with it. It was tho
bishop. It Is an altogether exceptional
affair, and may never occur again." Sup
posing that the "we" included the rector,
I and my family continued to attend tho
pro-cathedral until we were effectually
undeceived on the above-mentioned Friday
evening, when we. with others, left tho
church. FREDERICK FAIRFAX.
