Nashville at Montgomery. Shreveport at New Orleans. Yesterday the Legislators and the Barons broke even in a morning and afternoon game at West End park. The score of the morning game, in which the young ‘•phenom” Maxwell and gallant Irvin Wilhelm were pitted against each other, was 2 to 1. with the visitors on the hig end of the tally. The after noon game was token with comparative ease by the Barons, the score being 9 to Ragan and Malarky were t'he opposing t wirlers. The games brought out the largest crowds in t'he history of Birmingham baseball. In tin* morning some n<K)0 wildly cheering fanatics were seated and stand ing in every portion of the held. In the afternoon an ever moving, restless, seeth ing mass of humanity, numbering more than 7000 souls. took possession of the grounds and rendered brilliant base ball an utter Impossibility. The feature of both games was tin1 enormous at tendance. and tlie characteristic of the attendance was the unrestralnable anima tion. tin? strenuous enthusiasm that 'held positive sway. Ground rules were adopted in the morn ing. In the afternoon the same rules obtained, but the great throng of people seriously handicapped the players, and there wa.s little material benefit guined from the adoption of this agreement. Maxwell starred. The morning's game was decidedly t,he better of the two. Young Maxwell, the star of the Pretzel aggregation, ami des tined to become one of the greatest twirl ers of the day, had the llamas completely at his mercy, attd in spite of the fact that Wilhelm held the visitors to a nar row margin throughout the struggle, the Pretzels drew the winning hand. Max well gently set the locals dawn with two hits. The single tally was made as a re sult of an error on the part of Heine Busch Wilhelm started the game badly, his spit-ball, when Hist attempted, breaking In a most erratic ami dangerous man ner. When threatening holes were en tered, however. Wilhelm worked out with comparative ease, and his efforts elicited marked applause from the great hunch of spectators surrounding the Held. The winning^score, at least, resulted from an error by* Shortstop Oyler. The first run was made by Hotitz, alter he reached second on a bad throw by Catcher Gar vin. It is seen, therefore, that an error and a serious mlseue. caused llie loss of the game, in spite of the fact that It would have been utterly impossible for the Barons to win with Maxwell twirl ing, In ease no disastrous error occurred in his support. Oyler was the fielding slar of the morn ing game. The work of the shortstop was brilliant, indeed, and Ills apecln. ulsr performance caused cheer after cheer to arise from the throats of the big bunch of Pretzel rooters seated In the grand stand. Molesworth's fast work in the field was also a feat or Players Handicapped. In the afternoon, the attendance on the game was tile largest in the history of this burg and. perhaps, the largest in the history of southern baseball. This attendance caused a serious handicap to present Itself, and this handicap. It is true, worked more to the disadvantage of the Pretzels than the Barons. It so happened that several of the Barons' drives, which would have re sulted in easy outs, sunk Into the mass of humanity la light Held, and placed runner after runner on second base, at which station, the rules held him. Only once did a Montgomery player turn this neat trick, while Birmingham succeeded In landing a hall In this spot several times. The feature of the game was the heavy hitting of the Barons, the number of doubles being large, and a couple of three baggers, and probably a home run was prevented by the existence of the rule which prevented a runner going further than second. This was notably true in terrific drives sailed to right field fence by Smith and Molesworth. the hit of the former galloping over the ground, and bounding to the topmost plank of the enclosure. First Baseman Meeks is credited with a home run. His drive sailed to right field and 1'mplre Riidderham thought that it went over the fence. Tills view was held, too. by many of the spectators, although now It Is generally admitted that the ball Rlmply fell against the fence, and should have resulted only in a double. Mornlnq Game. When the players trotted out upon the green, there arose from the vast audi ence a cheer that could have been heard In Bessemer, one which floated down Vil lage creek, and resounded over all the hills and vales. It was then seen that the enthusiasm of the fans rvas destined to cut a great figure In the battle. The rooting was especially strenuous on ac eount of the presence of some five hun dred fans from Montgomery, who did not fail to make their presence known. The day started had for the locals, and Houtz. the first up. having drawn a straight ball, due to the Tact that lie had received three bad ones, hit safe to center. Busch, next up. was felled on three strikes, his stick railing In each effort even to appro acli the benders of the Baron twirler. Just at tills moment, however. Houtz started for second and (Jarvin threw badly. Had this man been ■outed.” who can say but that Birming ham would have taken both of the games. No sooner had Houtz stationed himself on second, than a 'spit-ball” broke er ratically. and bounded over the bead of the catcher. Houtz went to third. Schwartz was safe on fielder’s choice, but the effort to retire Houtz at the plate failed signally. When the first score was made, the en SPARKS FROM THE GAMES The fans from Montgomery never before saw such a crowd. They admitted it yesterday. There were throe openings into the park. A new' bleacher ticket office was in force. One scrap occurred at the park during the morning game. It happened in the bleacher section, and the swarming of the people to that portion of lhe field, tem porarily delayed play. A foul ball in the afternoon struck a lady and rendered her unconscious. On account of the big crowd, the name of the injured person could not be learned. The hurt Is not serious. One man and wife had with them their baby, presumably 2 years old. The man stated that there was no one at homo with whom to leave the child, and he just had to sec the game. The infant slept, perfectly oblivious to the screaming fouls that occasionally swung near its head. One fan, climbing upon the grandstand, pulled off his hat, coat, collar, cravat and shoes. Fie was prepared to enjoy him self. when a policeman “called him down. The cars held at the park for the re turning crowds In the afternoon, were Inadequate. Fairground and BSnslcy cars aided in putting the vast throng home again. Hausen, the big catcher of the Pretzels, was put out of the game for kicking Smith was safe at home in the morning ■ by a narrow margin, and this made the I catcher sore. He was ejected. From the press box. it looked ns If the runner was untouched by the catcher, although it did appear as if Smith's foot was never In touch with the rubber. Mullaney was loaded down with coin when he boarded the train for Montgom ery. Tin? visitors did not know’ that there was so much money in Birmingham. “MULL’S” TERRIBLE TEMPER Dominick Mullaney will not be a suc cess as a Southern league manager. He has a temper so violent that it will con tinue to break forth until his career will meet with a sudden check. Twice yester day he displayed that temper, and at neither time was it necessary. It is said that "Mull,” the "Turk," tries to be a good fellow, but that his temper is so great that he cannot control it. Irritated by tvhat he considered a bad decision on balls and strikes, Mullaney, immediately after Hausen was put out of t'he morning game, called down censure by kicking the umpire’s "plate brush" among the spectators. Rudderhain spoke to him concerning this, but did not eject him from the park, as he should have done. Again, Mullaney, in endeavoring to catch a foul, ran over a small boy some 10 years of age, and knocked him flat. It Is possible that this was acciden tal. When he missed the fly, however, there was no excuse for his picking up the fallen hoy's hat and sailing it con temptuously Into the crowd. During this procedure Chief Weir had to interfere to maintain peace. Accord ing to a statement of the chief Mullaney shook his fist at someone among those standing in front of the grand stand, and challenged 'him to a fisticuff. Mullaney behaved badly beyond a doubt. This temper will eventually cause Ills downfall. It was first displayed on local grounds. It is remembered that "Mull" entered the Southern league as a Baron. He was fired, however, immediately after he struck an umpire with a bat when he thought his umps was discriminating against him. “OWN RISK”—FANS WARNED Birmingham is the greatest baseball town In the south, and from point of population, is one of the greatest in America. This fact was proved conclusive ly yesterday, when the attendance on the two games at West End aggregated some 12.000 souls. For the first time in the history of file city, hundreds were turned away. Probably for the first time in the history of. any southern city, six men were em ployed to notify the people surging to ward the entrance gates that they would enter the field at their own risk, that there were no seats, no standing room, and that their attendance would prob ably prevent the conclusion of the game. In all. the club officials believe, some 3000 people who were prepared to pay admission, were either turned away, or dissuaded from entering. The grand stand was packed and jammed. The smokers were one solid mass of humanity. The press hox was Invaded by ladles. Hundreds of people occupied chairs and benches arranged In front of the grand aland and smokers. Hundreds more stood In small space be tween these Improvised seats. Hundreds more stood In the right field, and many others, standing close together, make a complete circle of the park. Such nnother crowd has not been seen at West End. Every suburb of Birmingham was rep resented. Five hundred fans were present from Montgomery. AH of the hustling North Alabama cities sent their fanatics. The cars leaving town for the park were crowded to the doors, and men hung from the front and rear In large, numbers. Such a large crowd was never more orderly. Everyone was thoroughly Imbued with the Fourth of July baseball spirit, and while there was much "jolly ing" no serious blows were struck. thusiaam of the Montgomery fans was unrestralnable. Tills enthusiasm increas ed rapidly when the graceful Maxwell began lopping them over in a manner that completely sailed the Barons in the air. It was in the fourth that the first of the two hits yielded by him was ob tained The Score Tied. In that Inning. Smith, first up. lilt safe to right. This was tlie ot)ly legitimate hit scored by the Barons. Aloock was safe on fielders’ choice, and Smith was safe when Busch made an inexcusable error. Smith was gradually chased around to third, from which position lie scored on a “squeeze* play worked by Dale Gear. Walters and Oyler were easy outs. Had Walters attempted the "squeeze.*' Al coek would have been brought home, probably, and the day saved. From the time of the tielng of the score until the second run of the visitors was made, the game was filled with sen sational playing by both sides, the pitch ing of Maxwell, the unusual cleverness of Wilhelm, the work of Oyler anti Busch being still tlie prominent features. Both pitchers managed to work out of desper ate holes, the little result depended on a lilt that didn’t come. The support of the pitchers was excellent In spite of the fact that the errors made were extreme ly costly ones. The Winning Run. The run on which the Pretzels won tlie game was made In the eighth inning by ilelnie Busch, who was able to cross t lie rubber on a safe sw’at smashed to left by Charlie Schwartz. In that in ning. two legitimate hits were made off the delivery of “Little Eva’’ and this caused his downfall. Maxwell, first up. was an easy out. Houtz lilt safe. A grounder to Oyler off tile bat of Busch offered a beautiful chance for a double. The lightning short stop fielded the ball perfectly, dashed to second in the twinkling of an eye, but threw 'badly to first, and opened the path to second. From the keystone Busch tallied on Schwartz's single, in the eighth and ninth, the Barons made valiant ef forts to regain the lost ground, but every move was counteracted by the su perb work of Maxwell. He held the Barons secure and when they did manage to send his spheres to the outfield, a splendid support prevented their falling safe. In the ninth. Houtz robbed Walters and Oyler. Both sent drives to left that de parted from the infield bearing the label. •Safe." The alert outfielder, however, was always at his post. The Second uame. Whether Malarky was In bad form, or whether the Barons had donned their bat ting clothes, since the morning. Is not recorded, but it is a certainty that the star Pretael twirler was easily found in the afternoon, and in the middle of the sixth was unmercifully hammered from the box. The Barons simply hit every thing that the pitcher delivered, and lmd Mullaney not ordered his retirement, it is probable that the locals would still he approaching the plate and stinging doubles to all portions of the lot. Rur num, the Atlanta cast-off, succeeded Ma larky. and held the Barons down to two scattering hits. The second game started as the first. Houtz. first up for Montgomery, hit sale, and eventually scored on the hit of Apperious. The Barons evened things up just a trifle, however, in their half of the first. Molesworth hit safe to cen ter and scored on Smith’s double to right. The fourth was when the Barons piled up enough scores to assure victory. In that Inning, two singles, two doubles and two sacrifices chased Alcock. Meeks. Walters and Garvin across tlie rubber. In the fifth, after Alcock had hit safe, Meeks smashed his alleged home run to right. After Garvin was hit in the slats In the sixth. Molesworth and Smith successively doubled. This hitting netted two runs, and caused the retirement of Malarky. This ended the scoring of the Barons. In the sixth the second Pret zels score was made, an error and a hit contributing to this end. Atlanta Awaited. The Firemen from Atlanta will arrive ir Birmingham this morning at 5 o’clock. Three games will be played, the first this afternoon, the second tomorrow and the third Saturday.' Ycsterduy the Firemen took two straight games from Nashville and the reports mre that they are feeling quite chesty. However when last the Firemen were encountered by the Barons, in spite of j the fact that they were on their own i territory. Vaughn’s men succeeded in taking their scalps. Smith lias promised the Atlanta fans a reversal of this deal during the present series. As much friendly rivalry exists between the two aggregations a large attendance is certain. The two usually play excellent games. The official scores: The First Game. Birmingham— AB. R. H. PO. A. E. j Molesworth, cf. 4 0 0 2 0 o Smith, rf... 2 1 1 0 0 o !

Much good natured rooting on all sides. Mullaney's Jeans were lined with gold. The coming twirler of the world—Max well. The visiting fans made things quite lively. The Atlanta aggregation is after re venge. Birmingham led them all easily in at tendance. Shreveport is now hotly contested for the lead. Busch's error prevented a shutout in the morning. Bet's hear some more about the “rubber ball" matter. Another series won by the locals. About the tenth straight. Oyler's work was brilliant. His error lost the first game. too. The Firemen are proud. They took two straights from the Finns. Hand a bunch to t'he Atlanta Firemen, and you will have done well. Ragan has evidently forgotten the road to defeat. He wins them all.

Tf Meeks of Toronto could only field and run bases as well as he can hit he would be the best first baseman in the league. At that he Is a valuable man to have around.—Minneapolis Journal. Walthour Wins With Eeate. The races at Smith’s park yesterday afternoon between Russell Walthour and Henry Norton were won by the former with ease. The motor of Norton worked Imperfectly. Bussey, one of the amateur racers, w'as slightly Injured in one of the events. Bus sey states that he will endeavor to get up an amateur tournament in Birming ham next week.
