Ltncubuko, Aug. 21.?A pretty and
warmly contested game of baseball at
the park this afternoon resulted in a
victory for Roanoko by the score of 4 to
3. The visitors played good ball, but
so did the homo team.
In the box both Anderson and Boyd
were in fine form, and both dil splendid
work. Neither was batted much. Roa
noke, however, managed to bunch their
hits in the second Inning. Rut for that
stroko of good luok and good batting the
figures would have boon different, for
Roanoke only scored in one other inning
during the game, and that was the
In the first half of the tenth it bogan
to look like the home boys would win
out, but those hopes were blasted by a
most unfortunate miap.ay. McFarlan
hit to center and Knox tried to send him
to second by a sacrifice. He sent the
ball to tho pitcher on a bound and
McFarlan got almost to second when, to
everybody's surprise, ho turned and
started back to first. Knox had been
put out at first and McFarlan was
caught between the bases. McFarlan
thought the bit to Boyd was a fly and he
was trying to put himself safe on flrBt.
Leahy retired the sido by a strike out
before a run could be gotten in.
Roanoke drew first blood injthe second.

lowed by a scratch hit by Crockett.

Hoyd. McFarlan fifw out to centre,

Interested Crtwd of Boaters Arouud tbe
Bulletin Hoard.
A large and enthusiastic crowd of
rooters gathered in tho store room
formerly occupied by Dugtran & Sauter
yettterday afternoon and watched the
hall game botwoun Roanoko and Lynch
burg portrayed on the largo bullotln
board. Every movo of tho contest was
shown and this way of seeing- the game
was almost as interesting as watching it
When Roanoko scored tbreo runs in
tho second inning the chooting was so
loud that the policeman on tnat beat
thought a fight was in progress and
made himself scarco until tho noiBB
ceased. As the game progressed and
Boyd continued to mow the Hill Climb?
ers down the excitement ran high, and
the rooters rooted ad hard as though
they were actually on the bloachers.
Tbe commencement of the tenth in?
ning was greeted with choors and a
mighty yell went up when Lynchburg
was retired. Enthusiasm was at fever
heat, and when Daniel brought in the
winning run pandemonium broke loose.
The managers have secured a largo
number of chairs and those who attend
to-day will bo provided with seats. All
tho gameB played this week will be ex?
hibited. _
Banken and Merchants Enjoyed Them?
selves on the Diamond Yesterday.
Remembrances of drafts, bonds, rates
of exchange, value of carpets and crock?
ery and the price of eggs and flour wore
all forgotten yesterday by an aggrega?
tion of capitalists, banicers and mer?
chants who mot upon tho diamond to
learn how much thoy had degenerated
as ball-tossors since thoy were boys.
Instead of dry, stale topics cf business
the gentlemen discussed glass arms,
Charley horse, basis hits and errors with
a freedom that proved thoy wore con?
versant with terms evon if thore is
something about holding the sphero and
batting it that they don't know.
Uowovor, an exhibition of ball play?
ing "as sho should bo played" was given,
and, barring Jim Boouo'j effort to catch
a pop fly by Ed Bonnett on tho top of
his head in the second inning, Jamea
Kuykondall's graceful contortions while
at bat, Messrs. Coon and Jones' tumble
in collision at first, "Pop" Vaidon's
stick work and "Big" Michael's errors,
the gamo wab a truly a cake walk.
Walter Turner was selected umpire,
but after bo was knocked from tho
podoatal and was succooded by C. E.
Graves, who lasted ono round and ondod
with a solemn promise never again to
tackle an amateur game, R. W. Ander?
son, who was kooping official tab, and
who marshaled the men in line a? they
Btumbled around the bases, was loudly
called for, the basso of Vaidcn being
distinctly heard. Anderson declined
tho task with regrets and Bud Arm?
strong was prevailed upon to sorve.
The playing of Joseph Engloby, Rob?
ert Ott, Robert Kent, Sparer Gale,
Walter Jones, Edward Michaol and E.
M. JoneB was of tbe gilt-edged order.
Tho rest are amateur ball players, but
as runners and tumblers thoy are fairly
in it.
Tho game lasted seven innings, tho
Bankers defeating tho Morchants by a
score of 24 to 19.
An In%tltntIon That Is Steadily Growing in
Popular Favor.
The management of the Roanoke pub?
lic library desire to thank the following
persons for donations of books: Mrs. J.
U. Sands, Mrs. Porter, Mrs. McClana
han, Mrs. McCoy, Mrs. S. W. Jamison,
Mrs. Lucian Cocke, Mr. Gambill, Miss
Minnie Henderson, Mrs Schwrar, Miss
Kindred, Miss Crane, Miss Leary.
It may bo seen from tho above that
interest in tho library has not declined
during the heated term when so many
people are out of town, but that it has
widened and deeponed.
About seventy-five volumes havo re?
cently been added to tho library. While
many of these are of a substantial na
turo tho majority are to satisfy the de?
mand for popular fiction.
It is tho desire of tho management to
open tho library cn Saturday evenings
in tho fall and to add constantly to the
ehelvos the newest and best in litera?
ture but that requires a hoavy outlay,
and it is hoped that all friends will in?
terest themselves In procuring now
subscribers and donations.

He Informs the Times What His
Course Will Be.
Col. J. Hampton H?ge, whom the Re?
publicans of this district have named as
their candidate for Congress, was at his
desk in his law office in this city yester?
day. During the day he received many
calls and congratulations from friends.
The gentleman was asked by a Times
man to outline, briefly, his plans for the
coming campaign. Colonel H?ge, in
his statoment. informally challenged
Major Otoy, the Demccratlc nominee, to
discuss the issues of the day from the
same platform. Said he:
"I shall either open my canvass at |
Bedford next Monday or at Christians- i
burg Tuesday. There Is no opposition
to my candidacy in the ranks of my own
party, as far as I am informed, and the
Republicans will be united in a vigor?
ous, active and fearless campaign.
"My opponent, Major Otoy, Is one of
my personal friends. I know of no un?
kind word I can say against him, and if
I did 1 would be the last man to utter it.
I will make the fight clearly upon the
issues of the day, intonding not to rosort
to nor jubtnit to the employment of
personalities. I consider it moral or
political cowardice to attack a man be?
hind his back, olther by word of mouth
or through the press.
"I hold myself in readiness, if time,
place and terms are fair, to discuss with
Major Otoy the issues of the day. I re?
gard him a man of high character and
ability, and I have no doubt but thai he
will fully champion the oause that he
has been called upon to champion.
"There are no heart burnings any
whoro in our party over my nomination,
which Is universally regarded has hav?
ing been made attor a fair fight upon a
high plane, and the Democrats will find
that none of the candidates for the
nomination will be found shirking in
the fight.
"I am oppesed to tho present admin?
istration because I believe that its use?
fulness has been destroyed by the powor
of trustB and combines; that our money
interests bavo boon destroyed at tho
interest and dictation of Wall Street,
and that the commercial relations of
tho country havo boon ruined by foreign
powers and tho worth of agricultural
products reduced in tho interest of capi?
tal and trust*.
"I am in favor of such reciprocal laws
as will extend and onlarge our commer?
cial relations with other nations on such
a basis as will add commorcial valuo to
tho surplus products of farming. I favor
the iminodiato incroaso of tho curroncy
of the country and the coinago of both
gold and silver upon the ratio of 10 to 1.
"I further state that I am in favor of
protection to Amerioan labor, American
industrlos and American products, and I
earnestly favor tho adoption of, and
rigid enforcement of, laws restricting
foreign pauper immigration. I regard
thoir addition to our population as
ruinous and fatal to American labor, and
dangcroua to our institutions.
"I havu always recognized that Tut:
Timks has boon against mo politically,
but it has never resorted to any dishon?
orable practices. All I ask is that tho
ballot?tho evidence of tho will of tho
people?will bo cast, and counted as
cast, and I shall fearlessly expose any
and all efforts at fraud."
