After the fourth inning a book maker would have laid 200 to 1 against the Senators winning, principally on account of the Tigers' big lead and "Wild Bill" Donovan's being on the rubber. But Man ager Loftus kept cheering hit. players on, and by sticking persistently at it the Sen ators finally located the ball and batted out as clean a victory as has come Washing ten's way this season. How the Locals Won. There were two things in the Senators' game that contributed substantially toward the victory?a sensational one-handed stop by McCormick back of second, which re sulted in a double play and prevented the Detroits from scoring, and a beautiful dou ble to the right field fence by Selbach In the seventh Inning, which drove In three runs. "Sel" has been somewhat backward in his hitting this season, but he was up in his old-time form yesterday. Charley Moran was the principal offender in the misplay line, and his bad throw to first in the second inning gave the Detroits five runs. Had he got the ball over to Clarke in good shape the side would have been out with only one run scored, but after that the Tigers got busy with their bats and sent five additional tallies over the rubber. It was fortunate for the Senators that all their bad work was done in the early part of the game, because the Tigers got busy in the latter part with errors and headless plays which made run-scoring somewhat easy for the locals. With Lush at short, Yeager at third and Kitson in left field that part of the diamond looked awfully weak. The Senators apparently found this out toward the end of the game and batted the balls in that direction and, as a result, the victory was pulled off. Wyatt I-.ee was sent to the rubber to op pose Mr. Donovan of the Detroits, and the southpaw acquitted himself well, as his work was really fine at critical points. The crowd yelled for Dee's retirement when his curves were hit hard in the second, but he was In no way responsible for the bom bardment, as the side should have been out. In the last five innings he went through his 'work like a thoroughbred, his comrades gave him good support and not andther run was scored by the visitors. Donovan, who did the twirling for the Tigers, worked as though he knew defeat was coming his way, although his own er ror In the seventh Inning started the Sen ators on their whirl around the bases. Scoring the Runs. Neither side scored in the first inning, al though Lush made a clean single Into right. In the second every Tiger ambled up to the plate, yeager started off with a strike out, but Ix?ng singled Into right, and Bue low singled over second. Buelow started to steal second, and on the throw down and return Long beat the ball to the plate by an eyelash. Kitson then struck out, and Donovan sent the roller to Moran, on which the latter made a bad throw. Lee hit Bar rett and Lush followed with a triple to the center field fence, scoring Donovan and Barrett. Crawford also tripled and Lush scored. Carr singled to right and Craw ford scored. Yeager wound up the Inning with a line fly to Moran. The locals also got their first tallies in the second, scoring two runs. Selbach started off with a single over second, but Clarke filed out to Kitson. Coughlin sin gled to right and McCormlcks single over second sent In Selbach and Coughlin to third. While Klttredge was being put out at first by Long Coughlin scored. Both sides were blanked In the third, but In the fourth Detroit got two runs, the last of the game. Barrett started oft with a hit, and In trying to sacrifice Lush was safe, as Lee fumbled the ball. Leo then tried to throw a fast inshoot clear through Crawford's body, and Sam went to the ground for a few minutes, but quickly re covered and walked to first, filling the bases. At this point Barry McCormick got Into the calcium glare. Carr hit a high bounder over second, which Mac captured with one hand, passed to Moran, and Craw ford and Carr were put out, Barrett scoring on the play. Had the ball got away from Barry there is no telling where the Tigers would have stopped. Yeager singled into right and Lush Bcored. Long also singled, but he went to sleep at first, and a quick throw by Lee to Clarke put him out. This was the visitors' dying effort, and they were heard from no more. Started the Senators. The sixth Inning started the Senators go ing, Selbach getting a hit, going to second on Clarke's out at first, which should have been a double, and scoring on Coughlln's single to center. In the "lucky" seventh the locals won the game. Klttredge led off with a single to left, and on Lee's roller to Donovan the lat ter threw the ball into center trying to re tire "Kltt" at second. Robinson's single scored Klttredge and a single by Hendricks scored Lee. Moran tried to sacrifice, but got a hit Instead, filling the bases. Selbach then walked to the plate, adjusted his belt and cap, and then drove out a beautiful double to right center, scoring every one of the locals on the bases and stopping at second himself. It was a timely drive In every sense of the word. After Clarke had been thrown out at first by Donovan Coughlin pulled oft his third single and Sel bach raced home. Coughlin quickly stole second and went home on McCormlck's sin gle Into left. Barry then tried to steal, but was thrown out. and after Klttredge had been given a base on balls Lee closed the inning with a fly to Kitson In left. Lush got a base on balls In the ninth, but he stayed there while Crawford filed out to McCormick; Carr filed out to Robinson, and Yeager closed the game with a strike-out. Score: Wash'ton.

Jesse Burkett Says Rules Hfcve Killed Good Base Ball From the Cleveland l'laln Dealer. "They can talk about the Improvement of the game, If they want to." said Jesse Bur kett, "but for me, give me the old days. To tell the truth, they have Improved the game until it is not base ball any more; and the American is just as bad as the Na tional League. In fact, neither can come up to the old National League. Take that team of ours in Cleveland. Put it together again, and it would make these teams to day look cheap; and 'we had only three hitters, at that. We had good fielders and pitchers, though, and, what counted more, we had nine men in every game, and never lost a contest until three men had been put out in the ninth inning. That's what won game's for us. Nowadays you do not see any such fighting for a game. The team that has the luck wins?and that-'a all there is to it. People used to go to games and get so excited that they whooped her up from start to finish. Now the pitcher is the whole thing, and most of the games are like funerals. The other day we beat Bos ton 5 to 1, and, so help me, you would have thought you were In a graveyard. Neither team made any noise, and the spectators were like clams. It is not the players who are at fault, but it is the rules. Give the player a chance and he will open up. But what's the use? The minute you try to fight for a game, it's to the bench with you." EKWANOK GOLF TOURNEY. Byers Put Out Captain Low in Second Round. In the second round of the English-Ameri can golf tournament on Ekwanok course, near Manchester, Vt, yesterday tho feature was the defeat of J. L. Low, captain of the Oxford-Cambridge, by E. M.

Five thousand weather-proof racing en thusiasts made the trip to Gravesend yes terday despite the storm and the possibility of not reaching the track at all. Owing to delays on the surface roads the Brooklyn Jockey Club officials decided to postpone the running of the first race from 2:18 to 2:40 o'clock, and even then hundreds did not arrive In time. Tho heavy gale blew down a section of the fence outside the field stand, which made a dozen Pinkertons busy all the afternoon keeping out deadheads; while Just as the horses were at the barrier for the second event a piece of the glass roof over the betting ring fell to the floor with a crash. Fortunately the crowd had gone out to see the race. After that the Pinkertons warned people away from the spot where the glass had landed. Probably a hundred women were present In the grand stand, where they sat huddled together for three hours trying to pick win ners. This was not particularly easy, as the track was a sea of sloppy mud, while the gale, blowing straight up the home stretch, made the midget Jockeys hang on for dear life. But for the hackneyed music of the band the afternoon would have been funereal, even though the clouds began to roll away Just as the crowd started for home. The scratches were, of course, numerous, there being seven withdrawals from the Willow stakes, for two-year-old fillies, at five and a half furlongs, yet a field of some class went to the post. The crowd made S. S. Brown's Sir Dixon filly. Audience, fa vorite at 13 to 5, but she never got into a position to be dangerous. August Belmont started two, Marjoram and Fine Art, and as the former is by Hastings, always a great mudder, the pair was played heavily at fives, while a tip that was on every body's tongue caused Turquoise Blue to be backed down a point. But there was noth ing to it but Marjoram, who was hustled to the front by Bullman, sending a shower of blinding mud in the faces of the others. She soon led by half a dozen lengths, and won, pulled up, by five, in 1.09 1-5. Hicks never stopped whipping Fred. Gebhard 3 Golden Drop, a 10 to 1 shot, and she took second money by half a length from John A. Drake's Ocean Tide, 8 to 1. In spite of the fact that Major Dainger fleld looked to have the handicap for all ages at a mile and a quarter at his mercy and was the choice at 4 to 5, John W. Schorr, Pittsburg Phil. Bud Meyer and others proceeded to hamhier Janeway down from 20 to 1 to 8. The Schorr colt had W. Fischer, a stable boy, up, and was in re ceipt of twenty-eight pounds from the fa vorite. At the weight he was the best horse in the race, but Fischer was unequal to the emergency and could render little or no assistance to the son of Top Gallant when the crucial test arrived. Janeway got oft in front, but Dainger fleld passed him as they entered the back stretch. Janeway hung on to the turn, where, as Sheriff Bell and Moon Daisy moved up, Fischer allowed himself to be Jammed to the rail. He got clear sailing In the stretch, but then he could not put up a strong finish, though the colt was full of running and game. As a result Dalnger fleld won easily by a length and a half In 2.0tt 4-5, with Sheriff Bell, 5 to 1, three lengths before Moon Daisy, 10 to 1, and Janeway three parts of a length back. What was intended to be a trial for the champion steeplechase to be run at Morris Park turned out to be a farce, owing to wholesale scratching. Lavator, a prohibi tive favorite, galloped over the course un molested and had 100 lengths to spare when he trotted past the Judges. Gascar was 200 lengths In front of "Mr. Cotton's" Gortnagalean, who actually climbed over the last three Jumps In order to secure third money. Cephalalgia, the only other starter, having thrown his rider headlong In the mushy turf. The time was 5.23. Because she was asked to carry 140 pounds In the high-weight handicap for aU ages at about six furlongs. Wealth, who had won her two previous races Impressive ly, was neglected, and her price went to 8 to 1, while the wiseacres went to Paul Clif ford. Slldell, Biserta and Race King. But Wealth stood the others on their heads and won ridden out by two and a half lengths In 1.18 2-5, Biserta making up a lot of ground lo the stretch and beating Slldell by the same margin. Race King: was virtually left at the post. "Agnes Brennan Is in!" said the smart fellows whon the betting on the fifth event, for two-year-olds at five and a half fur longs, began, and they promptly made the Dr. MacBride filly a 9 to 5 favorite. But she was not "In" at all, but was a most heartrending disappointment, as she fin ished In the ruck. J. L. Holland's Bob Murphy, backed dowfi to threes, was the real thing- Hiatus fed no trouble In tak ing him away from the bunch, and he won In a big gallop "by five length* in 1.09. Father Bill Daly'p.San Remo, a 100 to 1 shot, who In preVfous races ran as if his legs were tied, slijw<5d a wonderful form reversal and finished second, two lengths In front of Wistaria. 12 to 1. James Galway's Beverly, who was the odd starter In the Africander-The Picket struggle at Sheepshead Bay, was up against a lot of ptaters hi'the last race at a mile and seventy yards, and those who were clever enough to fcee' the handwriting on the wall backed him down from 8 to 1 to 7 to 2. Ho was away back for half a mile, then ran over his field until In a heavy drive he got to the wire first, a neck In front of Queen Elisabeth, 7 to 1. who was four lengths before Wllliamstead. 7 to L The favorite, J. El Madden's Medal, was nowhere. The time was 1.81. Only two favorites won. but three second choices made the talent pick up some loose change here and there. HIGH-CLASS TROTTING. Only * Small Crowd at the Breeders' Meeting. Only a corporal's guard attended the light harness races of the breeders' meeting at the Readvllle track yesterday afternoon. The sport was of an excellent quality. Shank drove Caspian two miles, each in 2.0714, In the 2.09 trot, which equals the record made by Billy Buck and McKlnley. All the favorites got a toss. Kinney Lou was the choice In the 2.20 trot, but after winning one heat he had to give way to Jay McQregor the next three trips. In the only pacing event on the card Centrlflc was thought to be the fastest, and she was a favorite over the field by almost 3 to 1. She won the first heat mainly because Knapp did not try with Claymore. When Knapp did cut loose there was nothing to It, and Claymore's mark of 2.07% In the second heat gives him a new record! For not try ing to win the first heat the Judges Imposed a fine of $50 on Knapp. It was The General that the talent thought was good enough to be an even favorite over the field in the 2.10 trot, but after making one start the banner was. shut down In his face. Alberto won the race, having Miss Janette as the contender each trip. In the 2.0U Maxin* made the going to the stretcn In the -first heat, then broke and Caspian won the heat by a length. The second heat saw the field well bunch ed, with Mftxlne leading again into the stretch and Caspian second, while Haw thorne and the remainder of the field were close up down the straight Caspian won. TURF GOSSIP. The Rhymer, Broken Down, Retired to the Stud. After burning up a ton of money for his owners. The Rhymer has been retired. After his disappointing race last Tuesday he vir tually broke down, and after an examina tion yesterday Snapper Garrison, his train er, decided it would be useless to try again with him. The horse was sold at Brighton with the idea of starting him in the pro posed match race between Waterboy and McChesney, and later he ran In the name of the Manhattan stable. It was reported that he was really the property of E. E. Smathers, but this was positively denied. Still, it Is a fact, that in recent races Mr. Smathers has backed The Rhymer for large amount#. On Tuesday It was said that the stable wagered 120,000 on him as a last resort. The Rhymer is a five-year-old horse by The Bard, and will probably go to the stud. Those who Inspected the steeplechaser Cephalalgia in the paddock before yester day's race at Gravesend wondered why the officials allowed him to go to the post. His ankles were clearly In bad shape, and before he had made the first circuit of the course he was In evident pain. His rider put him under the whip and drove him to the first Jump In the backstretch without mercy. There the old gelding stumbled and fell, In helpless condition. Turfmen were inclined to criticise O. L. Richards for sending his game little two year-old Race King to the post at Graves end yesterday in this first race under the weight Imposed by the handlcapper. Race King took up 123 pounds, twenty-one pounds more than his scale weight. He gave four pounds by the scale to the five year-old Wealth, twenty-four to Demurrer, twenty-six to Mary Street, thirty-five to Blserta. thirty-two to Paul Clifford, thirty eight to Choate and forty-three to Slidell, who ran third. Paul Clifford, who was made the. favorite In the first race at Gravesend yesterday, pulled up so lame that many pronounced him on the verge of a breakdown. Starter Fitzgerald fined O'Neill, Bullman, Michaels and Hlgglns |2T> each for running at the barriers In the Willow stakes. This race was won last year by J. G. Follans bee's Astarlta. W. C. Whitney withdrew Mineola, Hortensla and Armenia from yes terday's stakes and added Mimosa. John W. Schorr's stable at Sheepshead Bay was totally wrecked by the storm yesterday. Trainer Rowe had a busy time propping up the Keene barns nearby. J. L. Holland won big money when his colt Bob Murphy took the fifth event at Gravesend yesterday In a gallop. It is said he took $30,000 from the layers. Waterboy has a chance to meet McChes ney In the second special next Saturday, and horsemen are wondering If Joyner will take a chance. BOWLING TOURNEY.

The Post Office Department and Census teams played another fast game yesterday, the former winning by the score of 7 to 5. The feature of the game was the heavy hitting of Leonard of the Poet Office and Jack Hart of the Census. H Seay, at first, put up a fine game for the Post Office. Base Ball Votes. Senators and Detrolts again today. Howard Wilson will pitch for the locals. Yesterday's game was a good one, as It demonstrated that victory is possible until the last man is out. Moran tried to sacrifice in the seventh. Lush rushed to second to get the play and Yeager to third, but Donovan stood still and the ball rolled Into safe territory. It made the Tigers look foolish. Selbach batted like an outfieldee should yesterday and showed how strong the Sen ators would have been on the season with he, Ryan and Delehanty hltUng up to the mark. Joe Jackson of the Detroit Free Press Is with the club, the only newspaper man ac companying tha Tigers. Jackson is an eastern boy, but he has done so well in the west as to attract attention in sporting circles. Bill' Clarke belongs behind the bat. He has done well at first, but the work Is tell ing on him, as be is thirty pounds under weight. He has gone to pieces at the bat on account of continuous play. Bill is not of a robust physique and quickly shows the wear and tear of playing dally. Robinson performed nicely in center, dancing around like a circus performer, but he managed to get under the balls and al ways hung on to them. ? Only one "rooter" at the park yesterday had the nerve to stand up for luck In the seventh Inning, but he was the mascot. Just the same, and started the fun. All the Detroit papers took detailed ac counts of the game, and the scribes In the press box had a merry time sending In the seventh inning. The wires could hardly carry the surprising account of the Sen ators' consecutive batting. Manager Barrows cast envious eyes at Bill Coughlin yesterday. The Scranton bo^ was going good all the time, getUng three hits and stealing two bases, but In the fielding line he had a clean sheet, as noti*? lng was hit his way. Out Detroit way, Joe Jackson says, Coughlin is considered thj real thing as a third baseman. It'a the same here. Charley Moran conldn't account for his poor throwing yesterday, as his arm felt strong and he was considerably chagrined over the mlsplays. The ball wouldn't gO straight and that's all there was to It. Moran has done so well this season that he can stand an off day.
