In the Athletic Club Grounds?Homo
Jtuns .slid i in i i?- Haue lilts Were Nu?
merous onfjtlto Side of the Homo Team.
Tho Roanokcs won tho series from
tho Forest Hills by defeating them in
yesterday's game, tho scoro standing
0 to 1. P.oyd pitched for the home
toam and he held the hard hitting Rich?
mond boys down to live hits, two of
these being made by Tupper. ? Ho also
gave fire men bases on balls, but they
did not count for anything because he
was at his best when a bit was needed.
Lemon, for tho visitors, also pitched a
good game, but tho homo toam bunched
their hits and earned three of their six
The scoring commenced in the first
inning. Kain, the first man up, struck'
out. Foster was given a life at first by
Wigraoro's error, and in the attempt to
steal second, Daniel threw tho ball over
Wigmoro's bead and McCinniss allow*d
it pass him, Foster scoring on the errors
This was tho only run they scored dur?
ing the entire game. It looked as
though they might score again in the
fourth. After Napier went out on a
fly to Wigmore, Tupper made a two
base hit, Morgan followed it up with a
single, but was caught when Meado
threw tho ball in to Colliflower to head
off Tupper at third, Morgan attempting
to go to second on the throw-in, but Col?
liflower throw the ball to Wigmore in
time to head Morgan off. The best
Hodgr, the next man, could do was to
hit a little one to lloyd, who easily
threw him out.
In the seventh occurred tho prettiest
play of the game. Morgan had been
given a base on balls, and McCreery
struck out, Lemon, the next batter, was
also presented with his base. Lemon
played a little too far olf when Royd
sent tho ball to first like a rifle shot.
11 looked as though it was going over
O'ilagan's hoad, but by a groat jump in
the air hu pulled it down with ono
hand and touched Lemon out before ho
could get back to the base. This play
undoubtedly saved one run, if not more,
hh there was a man on third and do
served all the applause it received.
Tho home team started scoring in
the second, Royd doing tho act through
errors of Tupper and Kain. They earned
one in the third on O'ilagan's three base
hit and Daniel's single. They tallied
again in the fifth on WIgmore's single,
his steal of second, a passed ball by
Foster and Foster's throw to McCreory
to catch Wigmore off the base, but Mc?
Creery was asleep and tho ball went out
in left Heid, Wigmore scoring on the
throw. O'Hagan scored again in the
seventh on his second throe-bagger and
Morgan's error on the throw in. In the
eighth Daniel led off with a single but
was forced out by Meade on second
Colliflower, the next batter, sent one
down in the extreme right field corner
for a home run, the first clean one that
has been scored when tho ball was in?
side the grounds, scoring Meade ahead
The features of the game was the
first base play of O'Hagan, a groat one
hand stop of Morgan at third and Mc
Oinniss' and Hodge's fielding and the
batting of O'Hagan, Tupper and Daniel.
The Cherubs can got what consola?

QUIET DAY IN CONGRESS.
Hill States His Position and Hits
Burrows and Springer Mako the Speechen
of tho Oay in tho House The Latter
Tnhcsj the Occasion to Applaud the
President's Action and Policy?To-day
the Strife Will Come.
Washington. Aug. 25.?Nothing sen?
sational transpired in tho House to?
day. ABido from spoeches dellved by
Burrows and Springor there wero nono
that commanded atten tion of tho mem?
bers and these two speechos were not
listened to with tho interest thoy de?
served. To day was a day of calm?tho
precursor of tho storm that will come
to morrow. Silver dobato was begun
promptly by l'ondloton (Dom., Tex )
who expressed his intontion to voto for
free coinage of silver at any ratio that
had been suggested.
Bowers (Rep., Cal.) said the vote to
be taken next Monday would bo a vote
as to whether silver should bodestroyed
as money and tho country placed upon a
Pigott (Dem., Conn.) spoke briefly in
favor ot repeal.
Dockery (Dem , Mo.) spoke in favor
of bime'a llsra.
Moon (Rep , Mich ) was also in favor
of bimetallism, which he believed would
relieve the people from present strin?
Cobb (Ala.) argued that the Wilson
bill would place tho country on a gold
basis, and he was therefore opposed to
it unless it was amended.
Burrows (Rep., Mich.) then claimed
the floor and asked unanimous consent
he bo permitted to speak for forty min?
utes Bland objected and Mr. Burrows
declined to address the llouse for live
minutes. Bland withdrew his objec
tion and Burrows proceeded with his
Ho held that if wo coined our silver !
dollar at a ratio of 10 to 1 or 20 to 1 wo
would have a dollar intrinsically less
than tho gold dollar. To such a propo?
sition lo could not give his assent.
Those who favored the repoal of tho act
of 18H0 were the only real bimetalliats,
and they were pursuing the only course
by which bimetallism could be main?
tained. Free and unlimited coinage of
silver at any of the ratios named would
destroy bimetallism and would reduce
this country to a single standard?that
of silver?and that depreciated.
Marsh (Hep., Ills.) was outspoken and
direct in favor of free and unlimited
coinage of silver.
Josep (Dom., N. Mex ) spoke in favor
of free coinage.
Compton (Dom., Md.) said he had
been in favor of free coinage of silver,
but his opinions and convictions had
changed and he would now vote for the
unconditional repeal of the purchasing
clause of the act of ls'.io.
Money (Miss.) said lie bad also
changed his front, if not bis views, and
be intended to vote against the repeal
of tho purchasing clause.
Durborrow (Dem., 111.) argued that
the United States alone could not adopt
Springer followed. He said: I attri
bute tho actual condition which now
exists in the country to three control?
ling and fundamental causes. First.
The tariff legislation since tho war,
the protective tariff laws which are
imposing enormous burdens upon the
people of tho country to protect favorito
interests. There has been overpro?
duction by this unatural stimulant:
there has been overborrowing, over?
trading, overdraft!p.g and thus inevi?
The second clause in my judgment for
tho present financial condition is found
in demonetization of silver in 1873, and
tho third causo tho authority given by
the Sherman act. Shall wo answer this
demand for repeal for which we are
called together with the statement that
we will not repeal tbe purchasing clause
of the Sherman act until Congress
agrees to do something else on some
other matter? It is just as parliamen?
tary, just as reasonable to insist, that
the moasure for the demonetization of
silver shall also bo incorporated in that
Some have charged, ho said, that
President Cleveland will not ct operate
with tho representatives of the people
upon this subject, that he will not sign
his name to a measure giving re.ief to
the people and carrying out our pledgo
to make the largest oossible use of gold
and silver as a part of the money of the
country. If it be that be will prove
false to his trust it were better for him
that a millstone were tied about his
neck and that be be cast into the sea.
I do not believe that any gentleman
upon this floor contemplates such trea
son. I do not believe for a moment that
(.irover Cleveland would in the slightest
respect prove false to the pledges bo
Sykes, of New York, gave four reasons
why the Sherman act should be repealed.
Catchings interrupted the proceedings
long enough to report the rules of the
House without reading and they were
Hayle (Rep, N Y.) said be would
vote for the repeal of the purchasing
clause from a high sense of public duty.
Taylor (Dem., Ind.) spoke for bi?
metallism. Brawley (Dem.. S. C )
advocated tbe Wilson bill.
Breokinridge i Ark. i. though he might
not occupy tho position he now did,
undor tho circumstances he would vv.-:v
for the repeal of the Sherman act.
McRae (Ark ) attributed the present
depression to the evils of tho McKinley
Dolliver (Rep., Iowa) advecatt-d the
Wilson bill, (irout (Rep., Vt.) spoke In
favor of repeal, as did aUo Campbell,
(Dem . N. V.), while Knloo (Dem ,
Tenn ) walked on the opposite side of
McBtrick i Dem . Mass.) supported
the Wilson bill. Sipo < Dem, Pa.) and
Uelsaenhelmer (Dem., N. J i spoke in
Tonn.) advocated free coinage at any
ratio. Simpson (Ivans ) asked consent
for the considoration of a resolution
authorizing the Speaker to appoint a
committee of five members to investi
gate the allegation that certain banks
were not paying their chocks and in?
quire into the condition of Secretary
Carlisle and Comptroller Eckles in the
premises. The Speaker ruled that the
resolution was not in order and at 5:35
tho House took a recojs until 8 o'clock.
in THE senate.
At the closo of tho routine morning
business, which comprised no matter
of public interest except tho pro enta
tion of communications of the Treas?
ury Department adverse to any special
legislation in regard to penalties on the
whiskey tax. Hill addressed iho chair
and was recognized. He yielded, how?
ever, to Vest, who sent to tho c erk's
desk and had read a coinaaunioation
from the director of the mint, giving
statistics as to tho purchase, cost
and coinage of silver. Hill then re?
sumed his speech from printed slips. His
voice was strong and clear and though
he indulged in no gesticulations, he
used much emphasis and turned his
face alternately from one Bide of the
chamber to tho other. There was perfect
quiet and stillness in the chamber
while he spoke and the closest ation -
I tion was paid to the speech both on
the floor and in the crowded galleries.
Tho existing financial disturbances
he attributed to three causes: First, it
is a natural or inevitable result or Inci?
dent of many years of real or fictitious
prosperity. Besides we are suffering
from the evils of over production, the
balance of trade has unfortunately
been against us, we bavo sold our rail?
road and o.her securities abroad instead
of at home, and the interest as well as
portions of the principal have been
coming due and must be paid in gold.
Unquestionably some of the present
difficulty may bo attributed to tho
uneasiness of our protected industries
which have boon accustomed to rely to
& certain extent to a governmental
favorite to support thorn. I do not
disguise the fact that such uneasiness
exists and that it contributes its share
to tho general existing disturbance.
Tho Democratic party, he said, is
pledged to tariff reform and it must
redeem its pledge, come what may.
Some portion of tho present panic may
bo traced to a concerted elfort on the
part of numerous monomotallists to pro?
duce It, in order to further discredit sil
vor as a patty of tho standard money of
The Sherman silver purchase law
h is been at least, in oart, and possibly
tho most largely Instrumental in pro ?
ducing tho existing complications. No
one now defends U. Few apologize for
it, It has been asserted that the
President himself, in his hostility to
independent free silver coinage, was
disposed at other times to regard with
favor or acquiesce in the provisions
of the Sherman law, which has
been the instrument or means by which
such free coinage had been defeated.
Whether this be so or not tho fact re?
mains and has not escaped observation
that while the Democratic national
platform denounced the Sh. rman law
and demanded its repeal?denounced it
not as the result of a "truce," but as
a "cowardly makeshift"?yet Mr. Cleve?
land neither in his spercu delivered
at Madison Square (lardon, Now York,
in answer to the notification ot his
nomination, ncr in his subsequent
letter of acceptance nor in bis
inaugural address in March last, criti?
cise tho Sherman law tur made any
(illusion to it whatever. The Democracy
of Now York wan'.ed that law repealed
because it blocked tue way to free hi
metallic coinage and not because it
would aid the cause of monometallism
That is exactly my oositi >n to day. 1
am a bimetallist I do not believe in a
single gold standard nor a single
silver standard, but I do be?
lieve in the use of both gold
and silver as the h andard money
of the country anil in their free coinage
in our mints at a proper ratio, without
any ditcrimination in favor of one or
against the other, and as such bimetal
list, I waver the repeal of tho Sherman
law, becaase it la undemocratic, illogi
cal, dangerous in its tendencies and re?
sults, an impediment to freo coinage
and a disgrace to tbe silver cause.
