The value of L fielding pitcher was neveri
better Illustrated than In the same yester
di,y. Perryman pitched a remarkably good
Kume of buh. und should not l>e too seven y
criticised for not winning, One run Is nni
?hough to win ball games, and the club
resting under a blank has nothing to
charge tho pitcher with. Ineffective hitting
Is ?hat really lost the hall game, and the
only person who really surfers because ol
Ferryman's blunders Is ferryman. Not our
of the seven hits made by the Colts came
ai the proper time. They were scattered
along the route, ami at least two wore morn
or less off color. But back to Perryman.
He clear'.y had ftoanoko at Ms mercy. Ths
men behind him were giving excellent sup?
port. The worst he was entitled to was a
no-?coru tie.
Then something happened. With KneSVSI
giving him the easiest kind of a chance he
appeared awkward. The ban was by no
means hard to handle, and Perryman took
his t!mc about going after It, evidently ar?
guing that he had moments to spare- and
could inaka up the lr.st time by throw to
rtoiey. IPs line of nrgumont wasn't bad,
?xceptlng that he fulled to take into ac?
count that Knesves Is a very fast man.
After fielding the ball Perrymun found that
he had nothing to spare, and was forced
to throw without steadying himself. Tho
result was a poor heave, Which pulled
Itul.-v way to one side and made it next to
Impossible to cat Oh tho ball. After that
:;. .-. s-..\v wr.rk allowed tho rur.n? r to ad?
vance to third and then cap his feat by
Mealing home. The one run Is directly
chargeable to Perryman, but at that, the
tuns should never havo been won by that
lono score. .
TTmpIro OTlrien missed one yesterday He
hies been uniformly good In the two series
he has worked here, but when he called
Lafltte'S cloutli to the Inside of first four,
he was wronr. The ball was Mt fair, ntid
r*antto should have been on first and
Kneaves on third. That was In the seventh,
too, and but for O'ltrlen's decision Perry?
man nicht not have had to resort to an er
lor und slowness to allow Itoanokc to score.
riinn simply romped nwny with everything
which cams his Way. He had rix chances,
and several of them were great catches of
hard irles. Indeed, tho whole rtoanoko
elub played In grand style, while Gardln
was never In better condition, nor has ho
delivered In more effective style.
Durke'a catch, of lignite's drive in tho
fifth wns also a fine bit of work. It re?
quired a long run and good Judgment to
time the ball, as the wind was blowing
with considerable force, always a hard con?
dition for a fielder.
r.rlff sought to g..| the greatest offensive
strength out of his club yesterday. There?
fore he sent Charlie Strain to left In p'.aco
of German. Oarman is a left-hand hitter,
while Btrain smashes with his right.
Graham slole three bases .Ifneaves two
find Newton and I'ressly each one. Seven
stolen bases In one game I* running wild
aonie. >ve should opine.
Oardln -bowed his perfect control all the.
way. II? walked Orlffln twice perfectly,
but outride of that not even the suspicion
of a free trip was noted.
When batl clubs ?Ivo up hope the lighting
spirit Is badly assailed. Washington and
Philadelphia are out' of the running, and
Boston Is conceded ,the flag for the Ameri?
can League, Tim one pretty rtglit In that
omaoUatlon Will bo bctwse-u the NaJJoaala
and the Athlctlca for second place. The
Cimnta ore bavins their hands full keeping
the quintet of games to the good. How?
ever the concensus of opinion Is that the
world's series will be between Botton und
Now York.

I I Special to Tho Tlmes-Dlspatch]
Winchester, Va., August 29.?"Jn my
mind, thero Is no longer any doubt
about the election of Woodrow Wilson
as President of the United States at
tho election In November, and I ara .
confident tlie distinguished son of Vir
Kliilu* who is now Qovornof of the great
.State of New Jersey, Will poll ono of
tho largest majorities In the history
of tho United States," declared Llcu
tenunt-Governor J. Taylor Kllynon
while In Winchester to-day, en route
to address the Hhcnandoah liaptlvt,
Association at Ucr.-yvllle.
Speaking of condition.*; us lie llndn
them Iii Virginia. -Mr. Ellyson said that
last week he made trips into several
of the lighting districts of the State.
"I wait, greatly pleased w ith the Wilson
and Marshall sentiment In the Ninth
Dlatrlot," lie said, "und tho Democrats
never before had a more favorable op?
portunity to redeem tho Ninth than
they have in this campaign. They aro
conducting a clean and honest contest
down In the South western section of
out State, and with all tho Clements
united there Is every reason to expect
the Ninth to contribute a lutga share of
Wilson's majority this fall, and also
elect General Aycrs to Congress.
Likewise In the Fourth and Sixth Dis?
tricts, all tho party men seem to bo
eager for tho opportunity to honor
Wilson by voting for him."
"The Democrats of the country aro
now more firmly united than I have)
ever found tho pa.rty In all my experi-.
ence." said the Lleutenant-Governor;
"in fact I have not found one Demo?
crat to say he will not vote for Wil?
son. During my travels since the Bal?
timore convention." continued Mr. F.lly
son. "one thing in particular has Im?
pressed me, and that Is there Is no
great exclt? rnent among the Demo?
crats, but there is a vast amount or
nutel and sober determination. The
people of to-day arc doing their own
thinking, and they will elect Wilson
and Marshall."
