Boston, Aug. 16. Thomas Two Lung
Tucker, tire hero of many a fklrmish ou the
toutb end grounds in the days when he was
member of the Boetonb, was a unique
figure in the game today with Washing
ton, willed) Boston won by a score of 5
to 2.
Tucker vns given a great reception from
the small gathering, and Ills store of base
ball -eloquence which he poured forth
throuKhout the entire contest was amusing
Id the final inning whn the Senators scored
two runR. Tommy danced with joy at the
glimmer of -victory
The Senator were beaten purely by
Nicliols effectiveness. The "Kid,'' arter
his long re6t, pltclied wonderful ball, and
ecren Innings Wrigley was the only mem
ber of the "Washington team who could
find the Boston pitcher.
Jimmy McJainca was In great shape,
and had the youngster been backed up
by; a little stick work in the beenth,
sixth and fourth Inidngs, he would have
probably won his game.
Mc3arr.es performed one of the greatest
pitching feats wen In Boston this season.
In' the eighth inning, with the bases full
and two hands out, he struck out Capt.
Duffy on three pitched balls, after three
balls hail bien called. The lieavy Boston
hitter Chick Stabl, fell before him twice,
and only in the sixth inning was he found
to 'any extent. Of the eight hits scored
against him, three were made by Hamilton
The lnlter's two-bagger Was a scratch,
and his single in the third was a fluke.
Al. Selbach played a great game in the
lipid, while McGuire and DeMontreville
fclso fielded well. Abbey's abhlst in the
pxth inning, when tie threw out Nicholas
from deep right at the plate, was one of
the features.
The Beancaters were first to score
Washington Tetlred, Hamilton bit along
the third ufc line Tor two bags. The ball
looked foul,2iud Capt. Brown made a long
I1ck, which Enihlie refused to recognize.
O'Brien's fumble scored Hamilton. The
next thrrc batters went out in order, Me
James striking out Duffy
. The visitors were completely at sea with
Nichols shoots for four innings. In the
third inning, with jone hand gone, Wrig
ley drove the first hit. Duffy let the ball
get away from him, which put Wrigley on
eeond. He played away off the base and
Bergen with one of his lightning drives
caught JUm napping.
lif the last half of -the third Inning
Boston scored one run. NJchols led with
a hit and Hamilton heat out an attempt
ed sacrifice. Tenney's sacrifice advanced
each runner, Nichols scoring on "Long's fly
to the outfield. Duffy was last out on a
fly to Brown.
In the fonrth for "Washington, with one
handtont. Brown drew a base, but was
forced on DeMontrevHIe's grounder to
Long. DeMontroUlle, in attempting to
pilfer second -was easily out. In the
lai4.df.the fourth, McJames struck ouo
Btahl. Lowe and Collins, being unable
to do an j thing with his curves, were re
tired. In the first half of tbo sixth, Wash
ington with a little nerve would have tied
the score. There was ote man out when
"Wrigley found Nichols for his second
blt A passed hall advanced him to third
licJntnPS fanned, and Selbach drew a base.
Eelbach'ttupldly tried to steal second, and
Instead of being doubled between the
lines ran right into the arms of Long, who
received the throw from Bergen, and was
out by ten feet.
In the last half of the sixth for Boston
lie James was hit the hardest. He gave
Collins a base on balls, which was fol
lowed by singles of Lowe, Bergen and
KiCjbuls,,wJiich fcored Collins and Lowe
Bergen came home on Nichols hit. After
Hamilton had filed to Selbach Nichols tried
U( make the plate on 'Tenney'b hit to
Abbey, and -was neatly thrown out. The
total five runs ended Benton's scoring, und
after this inning McJames was notr hit
safely. In the seventh Waj,liington had
another chance. Nichols struck out,Brown.
DeMontreville and McGuire hit for singles,
but both runners vere left on weak hits
to the infield.
In .the hist inning Nichols could not
suit Belbach, Brown singled, and on Stahl'
error Selt.acn crossed the plafe with the
first run Brown reached second on the
error, and after two bauds were gone he
scored wjth the second run on Tucker's
timely hit to left. O'Brien ended the

Pat TJp a Farcical Game Against
the Champions.
Baltimore, Aug. 16. -The game put up
by Brooklyn today would have made any
amateur club in the country hang their
headb in shame. The game was simply a
farce after the fourth inulng. In the
fifth and sixth it simply rained errors.
Kennedy pitched a much better game than
the score shows, but he, too, gave up the
ghost. The Champions Paw that" victory
was easily theirs and did not half try.
Burrell's home run drive in theslxth inning
was the only feature. Score:

who are in lavor of playing thegaineupon
its merits. Patrons of the sport in such
cities as New York, Boston, Philadelphia,

the board should organize and wipe out
the evils which are slowly but surely

A Kansas Town.
Chiefly by reason of its newness and of a
certain cosmopolitan aspect, the Kan
sas town dlrfers from villages elsewhere
in the United States, and presents a few
inteiestlng variations from the common
type. The largest townln the common
wealth lias hardly forty thousand inhabi
tants. Most of the county seats In the
eabtcru half ottlie State, wherethe rainfall
Is copious, and where crops are bountiful
and regular, contain about three thousand
persons each. The county.seat is In the
strictest scn.c a country town. Thelnhnb
itants live almost entirely upon the tribu
tary country. There are no factories. The
money that the furmersof thecountyspend
for food, clothing, fuel and the comforts
of the faim home is the cash capital upon
which the town docs its business. This
capital is pased from the grocers to the
clothing merchants, to th druggists, to the
furniture dealers, to the hardware sellers,
und to professional men. In the older
communities of tlte Eastern and Middle
States', necessities lias dcvj-loped far lories,
which convert raw material Into finished
piodtictat. and money from the outside
-vorld comes in. But Kansas is yet hardly
a generation eld, andlt h&s not entered the
manufacturing era of Industry. -Atlantic.

Hundreds of Men Apply Where
Only Fifty Are Needed.
A "Want Ad. In the Newspapers Over
whelms the Tiber CreeR Sewer
Contractor "With Applicants Re
markable Sceue ut Garfield Park
Views of Local Ijitaor lenders.
In response to an advertisement in the
local newspapers for laborers, Contractor
Murphy, who Is in charge of tha con
struction ot the Tiber Creek and Nev
Jersey avenue sewer, jvas yesterday morn
ing overrun bj' applicants seeking work
"Mr. Murphy advertised for fifty laborers,
but when he arrived at the place where
work on the sewer was begun he found
over 500 men waiting for him, clamoring
for nn opportunity ro work The contractor
could only utliize fifty men, so the others
were compelled to leave without employ
ment Ic took Mr. Murphy but a short time
to 6elect thobe whom he desired from
among the crowd. The applicants were J
lined up and as he rapidly walked down
the line, he called out those he wanted
The others adjourned to Garfield Park,
tear by to nurse their disappointment,
while some followed Mr. Murphy begging
for work. Under the condition which Mr.
Murphy is compelled to prosecute the
excavation for the laying of the sewer,
it Is impossible for him to use more than
fifty laborers at a time. Notwithstanding I
this tLe disappointed applicants lingered
around und finally became so Importunate
as to make it necessarj- for Mr. Murphy
to call on the polite to disperse them.
The men went in a body to Garfield Parle
but did not remain there long, but soon
went to their several homes. The men
though greatly disappointed were very
orderly, theie being no boisterous or joud
tulking. -
Most, of them had been out of work a
longtime, and nob a few of them had fami
lies at home suffering for the actual neces
saries of life. One Intelligent and neat
looking white worklngman said:
"God knows I need work badly enough.
My lent Is overdue, andl have alrejdy bad
notice Ut vacate the ho use I live In, and my
children need food.
"I hear some people say times are get
ting bettei. I wish I could see it, but
in all the jearsl have lived here I never
suffered for food before."
Contractor Murphy bald to a Times re
porter that he was compelled to have the
men move out of the park, as they actually
lnterfered with the work on the sewer-
The Mg towers over which the cable car
rying the scoop shovels Is to run, were be
ing erected yesterday, and it was feared
that some of the men might be injured,
as they were standing almost under them
The matter was a subject of general dis
cission in labor circles last night. The
leaders were erj- outspoken on the sub
ject and are satisfied that something must
be done, and that soon, to relieve the situa
tion. The scene jesterdayat Garfield Parle
is, ihej say, being enacted day after day
in all parts of the country, and is Uie best
eidence in the world that the promised
prosperity wave has not struck the coun
try i ct.
Mr. Milford Spohn, president of the
Central Labor Vnion, said?
-'The affair j-eterday morning at Gar
field Park, where hundreds of honest
workingmen were found by Mr. Murphy
waiting to beg for work proves many
things. First, it proes conclusively that
the men who are often seen standing on
thf street corners, and who are generallv
looked upon as "oIuntary idlers, would
gladly work it given the opportunity
It procs also that ah the twaddle heard
abonr the wave .of pretpcrlty and the re
vival of industries is false, for if these men
whom it is proen are willing to work
could find employment elsewhere they
would not remain here "
This condition, Mr. Spohn said, doe not
only afreet the common laborer. The skill
ed workmen is affected as well, and there
'are huudredo who are walking the streets
d ly after day who cannot find work at
any price.
Mr. A. 11. Lawson, master workman of
District Assembly No. Gd, Knights of Labor,
said the circumstance showed plainly that
the laboiing men of the city were ac
tually hungering for work. The state Of
affairs, however, he said, were just such
as the capitalists wanted, and thej- would
do nothing to improve the conditions un
less it was to materially affoct their own
Interests. It was onlj- another phase of
the war betw;eea muscle and improved
machinery, and was. & striking evidence
that the hours of labor In every trade
und calling must be reduced to guarante"
the Common people an honest living when
