THE BOERS HIT
THE BALL HARD.
But Mr. Mitchell Grew Suddenly
Blind And Called The Game.
NEW MAN COLEMAN PITCHED.

"Man's inhumanity to man makes
countless thousands mourn" is a favor?
ite quotation with the people generally,
and one which unquestionably carries
with it a great deal of truthfulness.
And that an Utnplre'8 very unfair work
makes hundreds ot rooters pore is
equally true, as demonstrated at
League Park yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Mitchell, who tor two days In
succession had handled the indicator
and had general supervision over the
game and the players therein at the
Portsmouth ball park, and whose work
as a Judge of the game has been highly
complimented In these columns, cer?
tainly acted very unfair with the
Portsmouth team yesterday afternoon
There Is not the least complaint to
make about his work in umpiring the
frame proper, the kick Portsmouth lias
coming being on his very unexpected,
unjust and astonishing determination
to call the frame at the beginning of
the fourth inning, und that, loo, in the_
face of the rules of the game and every"
His conduct came to the two hundred
people assembled there as sudden and
us startling as a clap of thunder from
a. clear sky. and tor a few moments the
people w.-re so dumbfounded they ut?
terly failed to comprehend Mitchell's
action. ?'The game is called." Bald he
and started to leave tin- Held without
any explanation whatever, but the cry
came from every direction. "What is
the matter. Mr. Umpire," and being
pressed closely for an explanation of
his conduct, said: "I can't sec the bad
and you don't suppose 1 am going to
endanger my life for a game of ball,
Then it was that the little quiet con?
fabs he had been having with the visi?
tors became apparent, und his slowness
In starting the game and his asser?
tion that there would be no game was
shown sufficiently plain to induce those
present to believe that It was a pre?
arranged, affair. Mitchell senrched the
rules carefully, surrouned by the "Cher?
ubs." to Hud the least loop hole to call
the game off. But there were other
peoPle searching over the rules, too,
ami when it was made so plain that a
wayfaring man, though a fool, could
not err therein, he reluctantly, nt 4:40
o'clock, with not a drop of rain falling
and tlie grounds in very fair condition,
indeed, called "play."
The "Bluebirds" chirped and fluttered
and showed signs of great distress, and
their tactics were amusing In the ex?
treme, and were of that nature which
said in the plainest language possible.
We are afraid of these Portsmouth fel?
lows; let's sneak out of the contest by
hook or crook. At any rate, let's sneak
out of this contest. And the sequel
showed that their little scheme was
And they had a right to feel afraid,
for when tin- "Huers" started in on that
bunch of "Bluebirds" the grounds were
literally strewn with feathers of every
hue. and the chirp of the "Bluebird"
was changed Into the squawk of the
crow, and the hing, blng of the hits as
they landed up against the out field
fence si ruck terror to the "chlrpers,"
who usually show up a bold front to the
hunters looking for game, and they
longed for a place to roost long before
Mr. .Mitchell gave them that opportu?
nity without rhyme, reason or justice.
There was a young man by the name
->f Morris wlio did the stellar work for
Mr. Boyer's boys, and what the "Boors"
did for him would make a pitcher look?
ing for n job think twice before going
up against the Portsmouth boys yes?
There were only three Inning? play?
ed, and Portsmouth made ten bits and
twelve runs to Richmond's three hits
and four runs. Of the ten bits made by |
the home team one was a triple by
Longley and two two-baggers by Kom?
mer and Murray, and a home run. the
first of the season, by Kemmer. which
was a "beaut." over li ft field fence.
Colemnn, the new pitcher for Ports?
mouth, occupied the box, and Knln, the
first man up, fanned the air, soon fol?
lowed by Dranby, who swiped three
hits at the sphere without hitting It.
He showed lip in splendid form and
gave unmistakable evidence of being a
tu irler of tiie first class, and would
have undoubtedly won his game in a
walk hut for the unfair and arbitrary
action of Mr. Mitchell.
Tiie fourth inning had just begun,
with the score 12 to l In favor of Ports?
mouth (Kohnle walk, tl on four bulls
and Longley sent one with whiskers on
it past Horte; Coleman was on third
and one man out: the bases were
Crowded and Murray up) when, with?
out the least warning or any one hay?
ing the least expectation of the game
being called. Mr. Mitchell threw the
mask from hlrl face and gave the Ports
mouths tbi? "razzlc dazzle" spoken of.
The time of day lyna 20 minutes to six,
ami there was sufficient light to have
played at least three more innings, thii=
man calling the game just r.T minutes
?sooner than Craig culled it last Thurs?
day. There was, of course, n great pro
l> -t from the people: they saw at a
glance that Mitchell was acting wrong,
and Mitchell himself knows that his
notion was very unjust, but be b id sai l
previous to the beginnin-r of the game
that there would be hone, and be kept
his word. There was no vain falling,
and everybody knows that there was
plenty of l'r*!it to play ball at 20 minutes
to six- o'clock yMterday. Everybody
knows that yesterday afternoon was
not n.-? dark as hist Thursday after?
noon, yet the boys played ball nt the
park just :i7 minutes longer, and was
still light o-nough to see the ball then;
and Mitchell's excuse of "endangering
his life" Was a flimsy pretext of such
glaring Injustice that even the Rich
mond players give him the laugh after
they had worked him.
