Beach park was not overcrowded yester-
day afternoon by people to witness the
closing scene of the first half of the most
successful baseball season Texas has ever
enjoyed. But those faithful rooters who
did attend wsre treated to a first-class ex-
hibition of the game, notwithstanding the
fact that there was no real incentive to
earnest effort other than a desire to give
the public its money's worth and a possi-
ble chance for Galveston to land in second
place, should Houston drop both games to
Paris was again the other end of the at-
traction, and, though they fought bravely,
the timely hitting of the Pirates proved too
much, for them. They were escorted as far
aa Houston by the Sand Crabs and sent
on to Dallas labeled "Easy Game." It
would take very little to make Paris a
very strong fielding team. With Hobright
in the game and a hard hitting outfielder
they would, prove very formidable oppo-
Dicks, the young giant twirler, who has
furnished so much amusement for the
spectators in the last series by his awk-
wardness in the field and at the bat, graced
the slab for the visitors. He was secured
in the east a couple of weeks ago by the
railroad and baseball magnate and politi-
cian, E. H. R. Green, and sent by him to
Paris to rejuvenate his tai'.-end aggrega-
tion. He has pitched five games and lost
all of them, and his only value seems to be
as a souvenir of Mr. Green's first "gold
brick" in his baseball career.
The locals go to Austin to-night to open
the new season and will be absent till July
24, with the exception of two games on July
5 with Houston, so lovers of the national
game will have to content themselves with
the amateurs and watch the work of their
favorites by perusing the scores. The Pi-
rates beg-in the new season under much
more favorable circumstances than they
did the first, especially in the pitching line.
With Roach. Sparks and McDonald in good
form, and Huston available in cases of
emergency, Galveston should make a good
showing this trip. But the fans should not
expect any team to go out on a three
weeks' trip and play on any kind of old
diamonds and conie home in the lead. The
Pirates will have the advantage of finishing
the season at home with a long series of
Both teams inaugurated run making in
the first inning. Huston scored Galveston's
first run on a muff by Nolan in right field,
followed by two singles. Burns led off for
the visitors with a single to right. Stein
bunted cleverly down first base line and
beat it out. Nie sacrificed and Boland hit
to center, scoripg Burns and Stein, but
was caught at second in an attempt to ad-
vance on the throw-in.
After two were out in the third inning
Dicks gave Tommy Hess a base on balls,
Nance followed with a clean double to left,
scoring Hes«. and scored himself on Dil-
lon's muff of McGann's long drive. Thus
the score stood 3 to 2 until the eighth,
when the Pirates made a desperate spurt
and cinched the game by adding three
runs to their total. A double and a single
gave the Parisians an earned run in their
half of the eighth, but "Lefty" McDonald
was not disposed to let a game get away
from him at that stage.

Houston Wins Two Games.
Houston, Tex., June 27.—By winning both
games from the Denison Tigers to-day the
Buffaloes have settled all doubt as to who
will finish second in the first series for the
pennant. Galveston and Houston have been
neck and neck, with only one game between
them for the past few weeks, and both
teams fought hard for the coveted honor.
Houston has won, and every lover of the
national game is proud of the Buffaloes
end their splendid record. The boys started
off in bad shape, but by good team work
and honest ball playing have finished next
to the leaders.
The first game was similar to the one of
yesterday, no one's game until the last
man was out in the ninth inning. Denison
started off In the first as if the game was
to be theirs in a walk. Stultz was hit for
two doubles, a triple and a single, and
when the fireworks were over three runs
had crossed the plate. After that the Ti-
gers got five hits and two runs. Stultz
pitched a magnificent game, holding the
hard hitting aggregation down to nine hits
and three free transportations to fiist. Mc-
Gltinis was on tlie slab for the Tigers and
was pounded all over the lot to the tune
sixteen hits, but all were mostly bare, two
men were out and tlie bases unoccupied.
TTp to the eighth inning the score stood
3 to 8. After two men were out in the
eighth the Tigers made two mns on two
hits and a free pass to first. With the
score standing 5 to 3 against them at the
beginning of the ninth inning, the Buffa-
loes came to bat and. with grim determi-
nation and a resolve to win. jumped on to
McGinnis and hit out three scores. Cote
went to first on balls but was forced out
on Kiinmerer's hit to short; Shaffer hit
safe and advanced "Kim" to second. Pen-
dor hit safv to right and Kimmerer scored,
Shaffer going to third, when a moment
later he crossed the rubber on Knox's safe
drive to right. The score was tied and
the large audience went wild. Pender was
thrown out at the plate on Meyers' hit to
McGinnis. Meyers started for second. Mil-
ler made a bluff throw to the pitcher,
which he got out of the way of. the ball
went clean into center Held and Knox trot-
ted across the home plate with the winning
run. Becker went out to center and the
side was out. The Tigers went out in
regular order and Houston had won a hard
fought and interesting battle. The base
running of Knox was a special feature of
this contest. Chiles was hit on the right
hand ear'.y in the ^anie and had to retire.

The second game was called ten minutes
after the conclusion of the first contest and
was a tiresome and uninteresting contest.
Hayes is the complete cause of the Tigers'
defeat, Ills delivery was a complete puzzle
to them. They did not score until the sev-
enth inning, when he let up and they hit
out six runs. Bristow was easy for the
Buffaloes and his slow delivery was pun-
The hitting of "Beoronie" Becker, the
base running of Cote, the fielding of Alex-
ander and Shaffer and the hitter's homo
run over the left field fence and the pitch-
ing of Hayes were the only redeeming fea-
tures. Houston goes to San Antonio to-
night to open up the new series with the
Bronchos in that city to-morrow. Ail the
local fans wish them godspeed. Reed is
disabled and won't be able to get in the
game for at least a few days.

Two Games at San Antonio.
San Antonio, Tex., June 27.—In addition
to the regular schedule game of to-day the
Champs and the Dallas Defenders played
off the game that was postponed Friday on
account of rain. The Champs won both
contests. The first game was a pretty twirl-
ing contest between "Red" Herbert and
Beckwith, McCloskey's dudish wonder.
They both did high class work. The score
was 7 to 4 in favor of San Antonio. Mc-
Closkey put Jake Volz, a local amateur
with a phenomenal record, on the slab in
the second game, as he wanted to save
Gus Weyhing for the first game of the new
series in Dallas to-morrow. Volz was wild
in the first two innings and the Champs
got enough hits and bases on balls to pile
up eight runs. After that he steadied down
admirably and gave up only four more hits.
If it had not been for his tired support he
would have made a much better showing.
Umpire Mason, who is being given a trial
by President Heuermann, was responsible
for two of San Antonio's runs by calling a
ball which Knau knocked over the right
fence fair when to most people It looked
two feet foul. McCloskey's men are no
longer called the Descenders in this com-
munity. They ale playing superb ball and
of the kind that ought to keep them near
the top from now on. The Defenders leave
for home to-night to open with Paris to-
morrow and Houston comes here.

the prettiest seen here this season, his only
error being excusable. Ills batting was ter-
rific. Pabst also hit well. Reynolds played
clever ball. Umpire Brennan was again

Fort Worth, Tex., June 27.—With to-day
the first series of the Texas baseball league
closed, and with to-morrow the second half
of the series begins with Denison here.
Manager Ward of the Colts announces to-
night that he is in the fight for first place
in the second half. Said he: "I have signed
Ernie llodge and Sam McMaokin, who are
well known to ball lover® in Texas, they
having played in the past with Dallas. I
have also signed John Dolan of Newark,
N. J., said to be a first-class pitcher. Hodge
leaves Washington and McMackln and Do-
lan Newark to-night for Fort Worth, and
so soon as they arrive they will go to work.
I am not complaining about the ball to
date in Texas, still I am in the field to win
the pennant of the second half of the se-
ries. It is my Intention to keep the Colts
strong, and this 1 can do by carefully
watching for weak spots and strengthening
up when the time comes."

noon the Remingtons and Houston and Tex-
as Centrals crossed bats for the first time
this season at Forest jmrk. This is the first
of a series of games to be played between
thes'e clubs. The contest was brought to a
close at the end of the seventh Inning, the
Houston and Texas Central boys refusing
to continue the game, claiming seven in-
nings was the number specified to be played,
The scoro at that time stood 12 to 9 in their
favor. The Remingtons claimed the gaune
on this account, but it was not allowed.
Considerable baseball rivalry exists be-
tween the two teams, and when they meet

Beaumont, Tex., June 27.—The Americans

Beaumont was too much for them. Both
teams supported their pitchers, but Murray
played them to a finish by himself. With
men on bases in two different innings, with
no one out, lie fanned three Americans and
then he batted hard. Murray got fifteen
strike outs. Wells, for the Americans in

GENERAL SPORTING NEWS.
Poughkeepsie, N. Y., June 27.—Tho posi-
tion of Cornell on college boat rowing is
made known as follows: First, Cornell will,
a9 victors, receive almost any proposition
from Yale and Harvard that those colleges
wish to make, but will not present a propo-
sition as to future engagements.
Second, no proposition will be accepted
by Cornell that compels her to join In an
exclusive class with Yale and Harvard at
the sacrifice of her friendly relations with
Columbia and Pennsylvania.
Third, Cornell, Columbia tuid Pwuiay]-
vania will combine for races, probably upon i
this course, and will invite the university I
of Wisconsin to come in. Yale and Har- |
vard may also enter, if their exclusive dual ,
Fourth, Cornell may try to arrange to
race again in England with purely Amerl- I
can methods and as the representatives ot j
American college rowing. '
Cornell holds that her victory over the
two other colleges compels recognition if
Harvard and Yale wish to hold or attempt
to hold the record for American college
rowing-. Cornell also holds that as Cornell,
as victor, condescends to row with Penn-
sylvania and Columbia in a spirit of sports-
manship and to make the American cham-
pionship as great a victory as possible,
Yale and Harvard should come into the
combination till at least such time as It is
demonstrated that they are superior to
these other colleges.
Coach Courtney of Cornell says: "Cornell
stands ready to meet Yale and Harvard
and willing'to row them at any and all
times, but is not ready to be an unwelcome
guest in the three-cornered arrangement.
American spirit is against withdrawing
while beaten. It has been customary over
here to keep at it until pluck and skill
crown the efforts."
Captain Andrew Boyle, a Pennsylvanlan,
is even more emphatic. To-day he said: "l
do not wish to throw cold water upon any
scheme that will lead to wide open com-
petition on the part of all the rowing col-
leges in this country, but I do not believe
that Harvard or Yale will row with Cornell
again unless Cornell agrees to a three-cor-
nered race. 1 am quite positive Cornell
will refuse to listen to such a proposition,
but will insist that Pennsylvania and Col-
umbia be admitted. What we of Pennsyl-
vania expect to see is a quadrangular race
on the river course between Cornell, Penn-
sylvania, Columbia and the university of
Wisconsin. Wisconsin would undoubtedly
like to come in and I think she will be in-
vited. Of course if Yale and Harvard
broaden out they, too. will be welcome."
Cornell is very much averse to the prop-
osition to again have two sets of races and
one of the directors said to-day: "Cornell
will not agree next year to row twice, it is
our idea that it is too trying, and as the
victors we believe that we should have the
say as to who shall bo allowed to row In
any one set of races which we may ar-
Prof. WTheeler, who dominates the affairs
of the Cornell navy, says that Cornell is
perfectly satisfied, and he believes It al-
most a perfect course. Dr. Walter Peel is
an enthusiast over the Poughkeepsie course
and Mr. Ward of Pennsylvania and Cap-
tain Doyle t^re In favor of the course.
