There were dumb plays on both ldes, wllh a preponderance on the iue of the visitors. The crowd at no time felt sure of succeKs, and a lead of two runs failed to enthuse them, as would have been the case against a team of Inferior batting ability to the ftroutheis outfit. It evident from the Jump that Persons had control of the ball. The grcuiids were drier than on Saturday, but still not in first-class condition for fast fielding. Errors were made on cither side that would never have occurred on a perfectly dry diamond. Chattanooga started out with a vim that iooked ominous. In the second lr:-niiiK two runs were scored. Strouthers went out on a hit to short, Gilligan followed ruit. Hoth hit to Bennett who rumb'.fd, allowing the runner his base. Spratt singled to center field, advancing Uoth to second.

The death of Freeland Is a severe loss to the New Orleans team. "What will Nashville do to us?" is one way of putting it; but "What will we do to Nashville?" is the popular style of expression. 1 It Is exceedingly doubtful whether Nashville can line p an array of sluggers equal to the Chattanooga giants. At any rate, the pennant leaders will get a run for their money. New Orleans will scan the Shreveport returns with intense interest today. Manager Ashenbach made a change In the fielding positions yesterday, switching. Norcum to center and Mc-Farland to right. Good move, old man! Shreveport is not likely to win pennant honors this season, but she will put In a strong bid next year. The Selection of Your Doctor in Shreveport is a secondary consideration.

Norcum, by his fast work on the bases and with the wl -low, has won more than one grand stand for Shreveport. Yesterday Norcum proved his worth to the local club In the seventh inning. With Gilligan on third and Roth on second Spratt hit a line drive to left center which had the earmarks of a double. As the ball left the bat Norcum started after it. Gilligan and Roth had no idea the great player could get near the sphere. He did, however, and doubled in up at second. Jleits covered the bag. The catch prevented two runs which wou'd have tied the score end possibly saved the game. New Orleans is pleased with Montgomery. Shreveport is elated and gratified with the work of Norcum. Goodbye Chattanooga. It is safe to say you will make any team you encounter know that they have been to a ball game. If there was a weak batter among the Chattanooga outfit yesterday he wasn't visible to the naked eye. While it is true that neither Strouthers nor Dur-rett are credited with a hit, they are far from being weak with the stick. In Durrett's case it was a left-handed batter against a left-handed pitcher, which is always a difficult proposition. Well, what do you think : of Page leading the batting record yesterday. The Corner Club defeated the Independents yesterday by a score of 10 to 4. Batteries, for the Corner Club, Rudy and Morlzot, for the Independents, O'Brien and Vic. .

Even at Its inception the scheme was a mammoth one, but not Mr. Clergue himself then dreamed of the magnitude it was to ultimately attain. Already upward of $35,000,000 have been expended a sum equal 4o the total cost of the New York subway when completed and the plan now In hand call for further outlays within the next four years Wiat will amount to $117,000,000.
