Tlie loyal rooters liad a gala day at
Kational Park yesterday afternoon. There
were two .games Willi the Chicagos, and.
besides this attraction, it was ladies' day.
and Fox and Gettman -were in the game.
The fair inns "Were out In goodly numbers,
and they Were most vigorous in applaud
ing the sensational plays by the players
of both teams. 4
Fox became a hero in a whirlwind
catch of a line bit off Callahan's bat,
on which he completed a double play;
but in the next inning his hands were all
feet. However, his two errors were more
than compensated for by bis all-round work
in the double-header.
The'VKveleror the Texas League," Gett
niaii, looks eiery mcb a player, and ne
created a favorable impression. He is
very fast on his feet, goes after fly balls
"with a motion that is attractive and very
effective; throws well, and his flrat go ac
League pitchers is evidence that be can
line them out. He has much the swing
ing walk of Old Roman McGuire, but the
acevb-rated pace is wholesome, and will
land many runs to the score of the Sena
tors. Selbach and Brown won applause by
marvelous catches, and a liberal audience
cheered Ryai. when he made a tjensational
catch or Eelbacb'fc long fly. Tha Coltturned
bis back upon the coming sphere and
spurted away with the alacrity of a
chicken thief pursued by a bicycle police
man. Then turning suddenly be threw out
his lert hand and held onto the ball.
Lange also robbed the German baron
out of a bit, by reason of his extraordinary
sprintlngabillty. He made awllddash, tak
ing the ball close to the ground, completing
n double play at second Games in which
this man takes part are, as a rule, full of
life, and 3 esterday was by no means an
The Senators lost the first game by a
xre of 6 to 2 McJames" erratic pitching
bad much to do with losing the contest
Fox and Gettman, the new finds, were
in the g&m; and were much in evidence, tho
latter being credited with a triple and a
double and the former doing excellent
work in the field.
"Wlille Fox has two errors to bis credit,
they bad but little to do in shaping the
result The race up to the sixth Inning
was errorless and neither side had ncored.
In the ri.vtb, however, Wrigley put the first
mark in the error column. Kittridge drew
a base on balls and then Decker sent a
ucac'y down to Wrigley, who not only failed
to handle it clean, but threw it wild to
Very soon after this DeMontreville
made a mi splay which gave the Chicago
ans two tallies. It was in this inning,
bowever, that Fox made as pretty a
play as was ever seen on a ball field.
The bases were full when Callahan sent
a hot liner toward right field. It was
btgh and off to the'left of Fox, but the
latter got it and doubled up Ryan, who
was only about three feet off first
In the seventh the visitors led off with
a base on balls, and again scored twice
Two runs were made in the ninth, one
of which resulted from a base on bals.
Tho Senators could not bunch their
bits on Danny Friend and that is the
reason that they fell &nort in runs when
the game ended.
Gettman was the first Senator to reach
first base, hitting to lert in the fourth
Inning for thiee bates. He also scored
In the ninth, after again sending the
ball to left for two bags.
Six double plays were the features

Hillary Swaim was on the rubber in
the second game, and again demonstrated
that lie can pitch. The Colts could not
hit him consecutively, and the tall syca
more won his sixth successive game.
He had fair control, and, like all his other
victories, was steady with men on bases.
He gave four men passes, but neither
one succeeded in getting across the home
Fox had nine chances, and he handled
all of them in clean htyle. He is quick in
touching men, but lost Ryan in the fourth
while running to t-econd. He, however,
threw quickly to Tucker and caught iic
Cormlck. Jtyan made a very clever play in the
sixth. DeMontreville had walked-to first,
and Farrell sent a fly to right. Ryan
caught the ball and passed it to Lango.
Then Genu stalled for second without re
turning to first. The big fielder then
threw the ball to Dahlen, who In turn aent
it to Anson and the runner was out.
DeMontreville was a regular ball fiend,
not only did he field well, but he made a
borne run and a double in the fourth.
In this inning the Senators look Briggs'
measure In thefashion of af irst-class tailor
The lilts fell thick and fast, and the
twlrler from the Windy City must have
thought lie was caught in a Kansas cyclone.
Yet be f lid not give up, and thereafter the
Senators did Utile with the slick.
Senator Brown sent his men first to the
bat, and for three innings could not do
anything with the erratic Buttons. In
the succeeding turn at the bat, however,
Gettman flngled and was driven home by a
terriric drive to lert center. Farrell walk
ed, and scored on Tucker's swipe into the
right field bleachers. Fox, Wrigley and Sel
bach followed with singles, and Brown
doubled Gettman, on his second time at
the bat. flew out to Decker, Selbach cor

The Statesmen kept up the good work

second aided in scoring two runs. The
Chicago catcher threw wild in an effort
to catch Swaim going to the middle tag.
