Probably 1,200 people were at National
Park yesterday afternoon to welcome homo
Mr. Wagner's aggregation, whom he lias
termed 'quitters." They were the faithful
cranks in Washington. But what a wretch
ed exhibition of ball playing they witness
ed! The Lome team essayed to defeat the
Orioles Some of tlie Senators did play
ball, but come did not.
Wrigley, Tucker, Brown, and McGulre
part of the time put up a good game, but
Rellly's efforts were like an apprentice at
the paintiug business mixing ochre aud
orange colors. Ills work was so yellow that
his suit became un burned. He was6imply
norrible Selbach showed his weakness
on ground balls, and one grass cutter gut
away from Jiira.
As base ruuners the Senators are not
even in class O. Wrigley and O'Brien
thought their singles weie flexible, and
both went out at Eecond, while Rellly
showed as much judgment as the average
fellow does when he is trying to look
wise and is vary stupid.
McJarnes started the errors, "When he
threw -wild to second in the thiid, and
the bungling fielding which followed aided
the Orioles iu scoring five runs. Then he
settled down and pitched excellent ball
until the eighth, when errors and stupidity
held forth, and in the ninth he was hit
O'Brien seemed glued to the earth and
covered about as much ground as a dear
girl graduate does when her mother forces
her to sweep the parlor on a Fridav morn
ing. The visitors played tlie game to the
fancy of nn experienced magnate and
tneir work wab conclusive evidence that
the men whom Tom Brown is supposed
to handle do not know a great deal about
the most popular sport in this or any old
The most conspicuous feature of the
contest was Rellly's failuie to play ball.
He disgusted tlie audience, and his bluff
at Umpire McDonald when he muffed a
thrown ball from McGulre was in keeping
with his execrable fielding.
The. Senators were the first to score,
sending a run home In the second on Mc
Guire's single, Tucker's force hit, Reilly
being hit by the pitcher and a safe one
McJames singled in the fourth. Brown
hit for two bases, a fielder's choice, and
McGuire's hit over Keeler's head for three
liases, and two runs were scored.
In the f'fth Brown singled after Mc
James was retired. He stole second, and
on Wrigley's single to left went home.
McGuire started the sixth with a single:
Tucker followed with a bape hit; Reilly was
again hit, two runs scoring on O'Brien's
single to rieht, which he tried to stretch
into a double, but failed.
In the ninth DeMontreville batted for
McJamesacclsingled. Farrelltook Brown's
place and walked, The latter was ad
vanced to second on the doctor's out at
third off Wrigley's hit to McGraw. Mc-

Guire's hit scored Farrell, and that waH
the last run made by the Senators.
Tlie Orioles scored five in the third on
singles by Clurke, Keeler, Jenuings, aud
Kellej, and errors by Mc James, McGulre,
Abbey, and Rellly.
In the eighth an error by "Wrigley, a
passed ball, an out, and Doyle's single,
netted two ruus.
The visitors had a regular summer
picnlo in the ninth. MeGraw's two
safeties, Pingles by Keeler, Jennings,
Clarke, and Reitz's three-bagger, mors
by McJamcs and Rellly, a base on halls,
and a hit by pitcher resulted in seven
unearned ruus and the Orioles won. The

To the Editor of The Times:
We see that the wheelmen are petition
ing the Commissioners of the District for
'more protection." Great Caesar! do
they want the whole earth? What are
we pedestrians to do? We are mug
at, we are run over, we are hustled out
of the way for the convenience of these
thronging wheelmen whenever we leave
the sidewalk to cross the street.
The thing is a growing nuisance, more
dangerous by far than the cable and
electric cars. These will not leave the
track to hit you, but you can never judge
where the bicycler will go, especially wheu
he gets that wig-wag motion on his wheel.
The hoodlum on a bicycle is hoisted into
an importance he never felt before. He
owns the whole streetl
The pedestrians rightly feel that on
the main thoroughfaies in the city theio
should be more stringent regulations gov
erning these flyers than now exist. In
making this assertion the lady bicyclers
should be excepted. They have far more
consideration for those who walk than
the men exercise, and I am inclined to
believe that the rough experiences of those
who walk are subjected to come from ill
bred hoodlums, and not from men who
have been well brought up.
My business keeps me much of the time
on the streets on foot, and there is not a
day that I am not incensed by seeing this
illbred class or bicycle men insisting upon
going In front or persons crossing the street
on root, wht n there Is .abundant mum to
pass behind. They ring their bells to stop
you to accomplish this, and ir you do not
heed they will curve out or their way to
gain their point. Why this Is so no one
can Imagine. It Is the plainest fact In the
world that in attempting to head of rpersons
crowing the street, every second or time
renders a collision more likely. One or
those fellows In cutting me off recently
curved from his proper side of the street
onto the track of the street car, which I
was hastening to gain, "and thus be out of
his "way, and after pacing he curved back
to the same side of the track from which
he started, when all the time there was
nothing behind me to prevent his going on
that jide and maintain a straight; line,
though by o!ng In front of me he almost
brushed my face.
I have a friend who was knocked down
one day last week by one of these fellows;
his eyes were blackened by his face strik
ing the pavement, and he was bruised from
head to foot. He was so stunned he could
not rise immediately, and when he did, the
wheelman was fifty yards away looking
back over his shoulder, but further than
this he paid not the slightest attention to
The physiognomist can easily note the
striking difference between those I describe
and the gentlemen. Good breeding and
manners are as admirable on the street as
in the drawing-room, and practically more
necessary where their absence Imparlls life
and limb Give us common decency on the

A Reliable Remedy.
The object of opium in medicine is to
deaden and paralyze the nerves tempor
arially to stop coughing or pain. Noth
ing promotes the opium or morphine
habit so much as cough mixtures that
contain this nefarious drug. Brazilian
Balm does not contain a trace of it, but
is a true balsam that removes the cause
of the trouble. Mr. W. T. Barber, 1001
N. 43d St., Philadelphia, Pa., says: "Bra
zillian Balm not only quickly removed
all trace of my cold but had a generally
reviving effect upon my whole system
which has been permanent. I recom
mend it as a most valuable and thor-
J oughly reliable remedy."
