Aga'n HilHry Swalm was theblgstoneof
the diiiiHond yesterday afternoon at Na
tional Park, and he and seven other Sena
tors defeated the Brooklyns in a game
replete with sensational catches and In
cideutally some glaring errors in the
out! iW. Only five hits were made off the
tall sveamore of the Buokeye Stale, and
be pitched with as much vigor as the
bide bound Populist shouted for Coxey
when the latter was nominated for gov
emor the other day at Columbus.
The Trolley Dodgers, tried every con
ccUablc way to rattle the yearling, but
lie kept right along, putting the ball some
v. horf- uf&r the plate. He was a little wild
and rent six. men to bases on bails and
bit one, but with men on bases he was
remarkably steady.
Abbey wa- exceedingly fast and hi
ligl-tning throw to Wrigleyin the first cut
Jones dow n atthird. He also captured two
difficult flies At the bat he found Payne
ut two opportune times.
The Senatorial shortstop's fielding was
as sensational as one of Tillman's anti
Cleveland speeches in the upper branch of
Congress DeMontreville went way out
of his way to throttle the desires of
several Trollej Dodgers, and he very gra
ciously 4td unostentatiously prevented
them from swelling their batting averages
by marvelous catches. His one error
was of the excuble kind, and it availed
naught, as a moment later be completed
a double play with Tccker in fast fashion.
At the bat be was progressive the first
two times up, and then fell orf.
Selbaoh covered a great deal of ground
In the latter part of the game and in the
last two innings he retired four m2n.
They were not diificult flies, but never
tholes." he had to get on a swift move
to handle the leather.
O'Brien bit the ball each time at the
bat, but onlj reached first once, but that
time his run was earned. He has fhowu
wonderful activity of feet and mind of
late and the spectators gave him much
encouragement. He retii ed the last man
of the visitors by Jumping in the air
and pulling down Ehindle's liner.
Tbd Old Roman of the Statesmen had Ids
strong right arm with him yesterday, and
two base runners died at second. The
old man. bovvever, got too gay at first
and Southslder Payne caught him napping
by about three f&it.
There were three men on earned bases
when Zeke "Wrigley came to the bat in
the sixth inning, and the visitors one run
to the gord The first ball was a btrike
Rnd the next a ball. "Hit at any old
ball ' yelled an enthusiastic rooter. Wrig
ley, suiting his action to the kindly advice,
caught the next ball square on the nose.
It wjpat Into short left center and two runs
bcored Cy S walm won applause by bang
ing a long fly to Jones, on which Abbey i
Tom Brown's humiliation was akin to the
little boy who stuck his finger in the pie
and was caught in the triok. He struck
out three times, muffed two files, and let
Barrill's hit get away But then these
Epclls come to good as well as mediocre
Payne was touched up in a lively manner,
hut he fielded his position in clever style.
Bhoch and G. Smith were also strong in
the field, and their work had much to do
-with keeping the score down
Giii'fiu again dropped a fly, although
his record only will be affected, as the
batsman got no farther than first bas",
Anderson horribly misjudged Abbey's fly
In the eighth, which resulted In two runs.
The Soaators scored two runs in the first
after they had retired the Brooklyns by
eharp fielding. Eelbach sent the ball
into the bleachers and tipped his cap
as he crossed the plate -with a homer.
DeMontreville lilt tafely, out was forced
at cecorid by McGulre, who came home on
Tucker's long two-bagger.
Paype was very effective until the
tlxth, tbfeu Tucker, O'Brien, Abbey, and
fy'rfgley HugU-d, and on Swaim's Hy to

Two more were scored In the eighth, on
