Wallace's slashlng hlt to rlght-flold ln the fourth Inning, wlth.' two down nnd men on second and third, virtually won tho game for tho Law inakera, for ln tho nlnth Salve let down slightly, and wns touchod up for the second and third hlts gotten off hls . dellvery for the nino rounds, and whlch scored for tho visitors tho run whlch would otherwlse have tled the j score. With the exceptlon of the reckless mnnner In whlch the southpaw, Salve, doled out hls six passes. the young mnn wns ln remnrkable form. As a matter of fact. hls offoring of basos on balls but added zest to tho gamo, ? for he would walk ono or two men and then calmly retlre tho others on : strlkes or force thein to pop :yi weak flles, whicli wore woll takon care of by tlio. flelders.

Rube occaslonal'y i showed excellent form, several tlmes ! pulllng hlmself out of nasty holes and nalllng down tho ltd. One example of thls happened in the second, when, wlth- but ono down and bases (ull, he . got by wlth hls Job by allowlng but one man to scoro, and that was any? thlng but hls fault, as he throw to '? Edwards to catch O'Nell at the plate on Hlnton's choice, and tho catchor miscued on the heave. In tho flrst Inning Wallace received the glad hand from the 8.000 loyals who had assembled to wltness tho',. strugglo by a beautiful throw from deep contre to flrst, thoreby holdlng Doylo at the inltlal snck ln flne style. - It was not only a long one, but flow true Into Pop's glovo, and barely nilss xed catchtng Doylo off tlio sack.
