Tomorrow at noon the vessel will be

is fair, and many of the passengers
will fnr the lirst time get a glimpse of

writers will be met by the mayor, a
a delegation of citizens anil two mem?
bers of the Virginia Press Association
- President Pugh and Mr. A. C. Smith.
? There will also he a brass band. The

only city in the State where no action
has been taken in this regard But
no doubt this will be done immedi?

on towards Otey, who threw another

THE ?A5IK YESTERDAY.
Lots oi run for tlie Bow* Satnrdny.
There was lots of fun at Riverside
Park yesterday afternoon, at the ball

Walter Budwell yelled,' "play ball,"
in a voice that could plainly be heard
on dead head hill,and from that time
Until the game was called the 800
spectators had great amusement. The
boys are beginning to play good ball
and marly all the players had nice
plays to their credit. Cobb, the
pitcher for Roanoke, played an ex
oellenl game, and although this was
his lirst game this season, only one
scratch hit was made from him: that
by (iray in the fourth inning, and he
had twelve strike outs. The Roan?
okes got twelve hits from "Patty" Da?
vis, and several of them,notably Reef?
er's, were corkers. Three errors were
charged to the big lellows, Drodie's
column, showing two and Cobbs' one.
Brodie's two were both excusable, as
he had a long run and took desperate
chances. If Beck had played his posi?
tion properly, no error would have
j been charged to Cobbs' account.
A beautiful tripple play was made
in the eighth. Cray knocked a hot
liner, with whiskers on it. to Brodie.

Mr. Budwell,the umpire, was struck
in tbe forehead by a pitched ball in
the seventh inning, which stretched
him at full length on the ground, but
he quickly jumped up and called a
"ball'1 on the pitcher, while the
bleachers yelled at his pluck.
The features of the game were the
three-bagger of Alex. Brodie aud the
excellent work of Cobb in the box.
The boys are getting in good shape
and handled themselves with some of
their old time vigor. Assistant
Manager Patterson, of last year's
Roanokes, is going to manage the
Virginias this season. They played
fairly well yesterday and got the ball
up in good"shape. "The score was 19

day circulated, and" numerously
signed, asking that the marshy bot?

enlarge the lower floors, and also to
build another story on the present
