VrtSlilnglon' rotnlncd its leftil la tho
Atlnntlo Association by defeating the
weak "Wilmington team on Saturday In
n very onouldcd contest. Tho gamo
Was especially (llstliifiulslictl for tho lino
pitching of JIaloncy, who hold tho
Delaware hoys down to three scattering
lilt. Tho Wn&liingtonn put up nearly
a perfect fielding game, and they seem
nt Inst to have struck their gait In this
respect.
The Ncwarlis nro just behind tho
local team in tho championship race,
and Washington will have to play
tome excellent ball during tho re
mainder of tho week if It expects to
como homo in tho lead. Hill Is the
only man on tho team who Is not com
ing up to expectations, but ho is gradu
ally coming around all right and will
soon bo himself again. IIo has not
been the samo man since ho was struck
in the head with tho ball sovcral weeks
ago, and, from the manner in which ho
has acted, somo of his friends aro in
clined to think that he sustained some
Internal Injury. Ho seemed dull and
lethargic in his play and desired to
Khun his companions .without any ap
parent cause. Within the last few
days, however, ho has brightened up
considerably and is soon expected to bo
all right.
Thero is considerable Indignation in
Atlnntlo Association circles over tho
Xawson case, and tho action of the Bos
ton League Club is being sovcroly crltl-,
cificd. Lawson was a crack pitcher on
tho Wilmington team, and this spring
while in the South pitched excellent
ball. As soon as tho championship sea
son opened, however, ho began to play
carelessly and was suspended for indif
ferent playing As soon as Lew Sim
mons was put in charge of tho team ho
restored Lawson to duty, and that gen
tleman showed his appreciation by play
ing moro indifferently than over. There
upon ho was released, and tho very samo
day tho Boston League Club slgncdhim.
The whole scheme was so transparent
that the minor clubs immediately kicked
against it, and Lawson is In a fair way
to be deservedly punished for his trick
cry. Until the expiration of ten days he
belongs to the Atlantic Association and
any club in it can claim his services.
This will probably be done and the
astuto Lawson, who was carrying out
tho orders of the League team, will find
that he will bedeprivedof his salary for
n month or so, if every Atlantic Associa
tion team concludes to claim his servi
ces in rotation. It avould serve him
right and also bo a lesson to other good
nlaycrswho are tempted from their clubs
to major leagues by offers of higher
salaries.
Just at present the weaker member of
the Atlantic Association seems to be tho
"Wilmington Club, and there seems to
be a pretty well defined impression that
it will not play out the season. This
contingency was provided for at the re
cent meeting, and in the event of Wil
mington going out Providence will como
in. This change would make the cir
cuit a considerably better one than It is
at present and equalize tho Eastern and
Western sections. While it is to bo
hoped that no club in the Association
will fall, yet if any should, there Is con
siderable satisfaction in knowing that
another team stands ready to tako its
place tho moment the transfer Is sanc
tioned by the other clubs.
A small number of sporting men left
tho city this morning for a point Just
beyond tho District line to witness a
prize fight between Hull Miller, a white
light-weight, and a colored man whoso
rinme is cot known. There was con
sidcrable interest displayed in tho
match, which will be for a wurso of
$300. Considerable money has been
wagered on the result of tho mill, and
as both men arc in good condition and
the weights" are nearly oven, a long and
hanl battle was anticipated.
The Uowen-Myers ilght at New Or
leans has been postponed two weeks In
order to allow the Illinois man to get
in trim.
Jack Hopper is still in tho city, and
is endeavoring to get on a match with
somo of the local-pugilists. It Is not
likely to succeed, however, as thero Is
hardly a man among them who Is any
where near tho New Yorker's weight
that is a match for him.
Between now and the time the Pcarl-Murgen-affair
is settled, which will bo
in three weeks, there will be some in
teresting lights arranged among tho
top. sawyers of tho profession in this
locality.
When tho bookmakers began to com
paro their sheets on their way homo
from Elizabeth on Saturday they dis
covered that the cleverest coup of tho
year had been successfully carried out.
An unknown mare of Mike Daly's ran
on Friday at long odds, and finished
hack in " ihe ruck. The bookmakers
laid ridiculous odds against her. They
took in unsuspectingly ninny little $
bets at 30 and 40 to 1. When the de
spised outsider galloped In an easy
winner they found that thoy were maoy
thousand dollars losers. Eolo lost if 0,
(100; Johns, $4,000; Carroll, $5,000, and
so on. Not a bookmaker escaped. It
Is estimated that $70,000 was taken out
of the ling. .Jockey Fltzpatrick won
nearly $1,000 with $15. Daly himself
must have won a cartload of monoy.
Betting on the spring handicaps goes
on steadily. For th'o Brooklyn tho book
has been filled on Kingston, Loantaka,
Longstrcet and Major Domo. Badgo
and Sir Dixon are backed down to the
position of favorites, with Fides a close
second. Raccland remains at a stand
still, as thero seems to be a doubt as to
whether ho will star,t. A rush has been
made on Los Angeles, and fioin 25 the
California mare has risen to 10 to 1.
As to tho Suburban, the important
changes aro that Fides, Ofaleco, and
'Penny have all been backed for a full
book. Ilaceland has not moved a peg.
Firenl has come up and is now afO to
1, Salvator has gone back, so has Long
btitet. Of couiso, tho Ofaleco business
Is absurd, Tho maro has only 03 pounds,
to be sure, but the idea of backing her
at that to beat the class of horses she
will he likely to meet seems lidiculous.

ltnle Fishing In the J'otomnc How It
Id Dono,
Fishing with hook and lino Is now
fully In season, and tho owners of rod
and reel aro taking advantage of tho
lovely weather to Indulge In their fa
vorlto pastime. The resorts across tho
Long' Brldeo, notably Four-Mile ItUo,
and tho rocky points above tho George
town Brldcc aro belmr souizht bv manv
locnl anglers. Tho principal sport is .
uau wim mo gamey oiacK uass in tuo
upper Potomac, whllo not a few great,
lazy carp nto hauled in now and th6n
by tho Ushers. Black bass pair off in
April and make a circular nest In mod
erately shallow water, scouring away
the sand by tho action of their tails and
fins. Tho parent fish guard both tho
nest during the process of hatching and
tho young fish when hatched until thoy
nro largo enough to tako care of them
selves. During tho heat of summer they
usually remain in ' moderately deep
water, only going to tho shallow places
in quest of food. Tho best time to
catch them Is early In tho morning
(unless after a bright moonlight night)
and late in the evening.
Bcforo 1803 black basswero unknown
In tho Potomac, and it is said to be duo
to tho energy of a devoted angler of
Cumberland, Mr. Shriver, that tho
Potomac was stocked. He had mado a
study of the fish, and was convinced
that they would livo and thrivo and
propacato in tho Potomac. Ho made
several trips to the streams on the west
ern slope of tho mountains, and re
turned each tlmo with a number of this
variety. Thcso wcro brought over tho
mountains in tho water tanks of
tho locomotives of tho Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad and placed
in tho canal basin at Cumberland,
where being uninterrupted they rapidly
multiplied. They soon mads their way
into tho river, and thence into all its
tributaries. The largest little-mouth
bass ever captured of which any record
is known was taken from tho Potomac
Elver at Knoxvllle, October 30, 188S,
by Mr. Adolph F. Drcsel. It was
weighed at tho B. and O. -Station tho
day after it was caught, and' tipped tho
beam at seven pounds one ounce. The
fish was on exhibition at Dukchart's
for a day and was then sent to tho
Smithsonian Institute, where a plas
ter cast was made.
Tho best method of angling for bass
Is with tho artificial fly during tho
warmer months, or casting with min
nows at any time. Success is had also
with other baits, notably frogs, craw
fish, helgamltc and angle-worms. FJy
fishing Is done both from boats and
while wading. Tho wading fisher will
dress in n woolen shirt, short woolen
ti misers, long, thick woolen stockings,
thick-soled,, hob-nailed canvas shoes
that come above the ankles, and tho
coolest that he could find. Tho proper
tackle consists of a rod 10 to 11 feet
long, welching from 7 to 1) ounces, a
narrow click reel, holding 30 to 40
yards of enameled silk lino of a thick-
ness proportionate to the weight of the
md, say, D, E, F or G, as the case may
be.
A BIAGNIIMCIINT GIFT.
r.uml Donated for the Lutheran Unine
lor the A cod.
The announcement was made by Rev.
W. E. Parson of tho Church of tho Re
foimallon yesterday that Queen's Chapel
farm, containing twenty-seven acres of
picturesque territory, had been presented
to the Lutheran Church as a slto for the
proposed home for the aged. The donor
is Mrs. Sarah TJtermehle. Tho location
is near Ivy City. It is practically in the
city, being but twenty minutes drive
from the Capitol Building. It is said
that tho new Institution will he known
as "The TJtermehle Homo for the
Aged," and will add another philan
thropic Institution to those now at tho
nation's capital.
An Addition to the Shoroliaui.
Vice-President Morton, says tho
Building Register, will enlargo the
Shoreham. Dr. C. E. Ilagner's house,
No. 1507 II street, has been purchased,
and will be torn down to make way for
tho new structure, which will have an
area of 30 by 120 feet, nine stories high.
Tho new building will bo similar in con
struction to the Flats. Tho plans wero
made by Hubert, Birsson & Hoddlck of
New York, and are now In tho hands of
Architect Flemlne: of this city, who
will be in charge of tho work.
High School Actorn.
Tho principal scenes from Sheridan's
Masterpiece, "The School for Scandal,"
will be given to-morrow evening at the
National Rifles Armory. The actors
will be bright pupils of the High School,
and the proceeds will bo for tho benefit
of the school library. An excellent
musical programme will bo participated
in by somo of tho best local talent, in
cluding Professor Bisehoff, Miss Nellie
Wilson-Shlrkllf and others. Tickets
aie on sale at Metzerott's music store on
F street.
First Cable Car Accident.
Benjamin F. Warner was thrown
fiom the platform of a cable car at the
Intersection of Seventh and N streets
Saturday night and was badly bruised
up. He will probably know better In
the future than to spring upon a rapidly
moving cable car. This Is tho first acci
dent of any importance that has hap
pened on tho cable Hue, and It might
have resulted moro seriously, as Mr.
Warner narrowly escaped being
dragged beneath tho wheels.
Laudanum Instead or Hunglng.
A Washington woman who has bocn
addicted to the laudanum habit for
some timo has written to Governor Hill
of New York succestinc that instead
of killing Kemmler by electricity he ho
quietly and painlessly "put to sleep In
death" by a dosu of laudanum. She
believes the use of this drug should
supersede hanging generally 'through
out tho country.
Was Thla Murder?
The body ot a colored infant was
found by Ofllcer Jones in the canal
near the Arsenal Sunday afternoon.
The child was a month or six weeks of
age, and evidently had not been in tho
water long. Tho body was taken to
tho moreue and Coroner Patterson no-
titled. Ho Is having an Investigation

Tho Bay of Fnndy forms a cul-de-sac
at which tho Atlantic Ocean seems to
have taken a eplto and at regular inter
vals pours In Its waters viciously and
with Intent to da all possible harm, Tako
for instance, tho harbor of St. John, In
most parts of the world a tide of from
six to ten feet is quite sufllqlent to satlsfv
all rcasonablo demands. In St. Johh
Harbor tho tide rises twenty-ono feet on
an ordinary day, and occasionally varies
tho monotony by pushing tho mark up
tin ce or four feet, as the humor seizes
it, and I was never struck so much with
anything In my life as with this advanco
and receding of tho waters.
I have described tho narrow gorco
through which tho St. John River Is
forced into tho Bay of Fundy. At low
tide, where tho vator drops Into tho
bay, there Is a fall of somo ten foot, the
channel being very rough and totally
impassable for vessels of any descrip
tion. At high water tho fall is tho other
way, tho bay falllne Into tho river.
This was tho first timo that I had ever
seen a river with tho water flowing
from its mouth toward its source, and
this occurs every day in tho St. John,
One good effect of this tide is this, that
when It is half up or half down tho
river is level with the harbor, and then
tho immense number of timber barges
and other craft which have gathered in
tho river while waiting for tho rlso and
fall aro able to run nicely nnd easily out
Into tho harbor. St. John, bo it under
stood, is a great port of shipping. At
any day you can seo a dozen of tho
largest ocean going vessels loading deals
for different parts of tho world. Tho
timber mainly comes down tho St. John
River.
I saw the tldo como in around tho
headland at the Minas Basin, and it is
a sicht worth colnc lo sec. The head
of the advancing tldo is called a "bore."
If you can Imagine a straight wall of
water eight feet high, curling over at
the top, advancing upon you at tho
rate of ten miles per hour, you will get
.an-Idea of what a "boro" is and what(
a turn of the tido means. At the Minas
Basin this wall of water comes tearing
around the headland llko an oxpress
train, and tho man who was down on
tho flat sands of tho bay at this tlmo
stood a remarkably good chanco of
never leaving those sands alive. If ho
got a good start of 'tho "boro" ho
might escape, but if not ho would bo
drowned.

Mr.'iclioileld llomombors tlio Introdue.i
tlon of Woollen Mniiufncturcs,
From the Hartford Timet.
Thomas Bchofleld of North Lyme,
Conn,, who will bo 100 years old next
year, was ono of the pioneers In manu
facturing woollen cloth In tills country.
IIo is a native of Yorkahlfe. Ennland,
and was an infant when hls'Tathcr John
nnd undo Arthur emigrated to this
country. At tho timo England pro
hibited tho exportation of mnchlngry,
and tho two men built, In Charlcstown,
Mass., ono of the first, if not tho first
hand loom nnd spinning jenny for use
in an American woollen mill. Before
tho year was ended their machinery
was running In Charleston nnd Now
buryport.
In the following year they started
their first extensive business in Byfleld
Parish. Later, when thoy removed to
Montvillc, Conn., Thomas and his
brother James had grown old enough
to help In tho factory, and eventually
to take charge of It. Their Uncle Ar
thur located near Plttsfield, and ho
offered to merchants of that placo his
first plcco of American broadcloth. It
was gray mixed cooda. No ono would
buy and it was sent to New York and
sold there. A few weeks nfter Josiah
Blsscll, a leading Plttsfield merchant,
mado a trip to New York and brought
back two pieces of ''imported cloth"
exactly llko Schoflcld's. Ho sent for
the latter, to show him "cloth that was
cloth." Ills feelings may be imagined
when Schoflcld showed him on tho
cloth his own private marks. It was
tho very cloth he had less than a montli
before rejected.
In 1808 Schoflcld manufactured thir
teen yards' of black broadcloth, and pre
sented it to President Modison. From
It his inaugural suit was mado. Thomas
established the first satinet factory in
Connecticut, nnd was actively employed
until ho retired, six years ago, at tho
ripo tfgc of 03 years, to rest from his
iabors. Thcy'had not always brought
tho reward to which ho was entitled.
Onco he mct-with reverses and lost all
his property. But with the family pluck
ho began again at tho bottom and worked
out of his troubles. One chief cause to
which may 09 ascribed this result, as
wen as nis great ago, lsuouuuess iounu
In his cherry statement: "I never wor
lied much." In his 100th year he is
halo and hearty, with undimmed mind
and sight.
Aside from $10, which he paid when
a boy of 10 for-having a leg set that had
been caught and broken in the gearing
of the mill, he has not in his whole life
paid over $1 for personal doctor's hills.
To-day he claims ho could earn wages
sorting wool with tho best of them did
ho have to. lid has chewed tobacco
seventy years, is chewing yet and has
always taken a drink when he needed it.
His needs never led him to abuse tho
bottle.
Only one thing has occurred in recent
years to disttirb.the even tenor of his
temper. It was when a rival nonogena-
rian was written up In a local paper as
the oldest citizen In that county of aged
men. "The chiclccnl" fretted Scho
flcld when he read It, "ho ain't within
six months of my age."
