"Washington won Its third gnmo of tho
ferlcs from tlio Wllmlngtons yesterday,
In tlio best ployed game of tho trlo.At
ono stage of tho gnmo It looked very
much as If the visitors might succeed
In winning. They caught tho hang of
McCoy's delivery and batted him out of
the box. Phillips was substituted, and
be succeeded in preventing any moro
inn-gelling, but it was not until tho
latter part of tho game that the local
team was ablo to forgo ahead, which 1
did on Jack Wddlo's clean hit to center,
which scored two men.
Ilader made a remarkablo running
catch in the last innln?, which ended
the game. It looked good for at, least
two, If not three bases, and, had ho not
caught It, the result would havo been

To-day the strong Newark team plays

was released by tho local club, will

For somo llmo past tho Washington
managment havo been hunting for eli
gible grounds on, tho other sldo of the
ilvcr on which to play Sunday games,
and it is only a question of a few days
beforo tho negotiations will be settled
and available grounds secured. Tho
new grounds are within a few minutes'
ride of the city and will bo used solely
for tho purpose of playing Sunday ex
hibition games. This wlllbo a decided
novelty In baseball In this city and will
undoubtedly prove successful. Thero
aro so many unemployed persons
on tho Sabbath, who would prefer
to attend a ball eamo than Idlo
their timo away In tho streets that
good crowds can bo counted upon. It
may possibly hurt tho attendance at the
regular c'aines, but that Is a question for
the local manaccment to decide. Sun
day games, jier se, aro not detrimental,
but it is the kind of people who patron
ize them that mako them regarded with
disfavor by many. Whilo thev would
diaw largo crowds still tho policy of the
League in this respect seems to be tho
better, and tho management could well
afford not to play them.
The New York League Club Is play
ing ball In Its old form and seems to
havo about struck its gait at last. The
champions aro now playing in a man
ner to deserve tho palronago of tho
people, and it will not bo long before
they will hate It.
The Brotherhood Is going down. Of
this thero can bor" no doubt. Monday
night ono of tho staunchest adherents
of that organization was in tho city and
in conversation with tho'writcr he said:
"Old man, you were right. I realize
now wo arc being crowded out and arc
going down. 1 hate to admit it, but its
true. Uur attendance Is exaggerated In
tho reports sent out.and altogether every
thing Is not as rosy as it looks." This
was said in confidence, with tho request
that the speaker bo not quoted. In giv
ing it out without his nome no confi
dence Is violated, and It Is done to show
oh what shallow foundation tlio Players'
League rests. There Is nothing In tho
gentleman's- admissions but what was
known weeks ago, and yet It is tho first
open declaration of the waning of the
Biotherhood organization. They may
struggle throueh tho season, but it Is
extremely doubtful, and thero are a
great many people willing to wager
that the month of August will witness
the final dissolution of the Wreckers'
All the racing world today Is on the
qui tire and every eye Is turned towards
Brooklyn where as flno a lot of horses
will start In the great handicap as ever
passed n starter's flag. Tho field Is such
an excellent one that the task of select
ing tho winner seems well nigh impossi
ble owing to tho great diversity of
opinion among racing men. Sir Dixon,
Los Angeles, "Como-to-Taw, Racoland,
Fides, Badge among them will be
found the winner. Thero will bo tons.
of money Invested on Los Angeles to
day and tho Western men will Dtlc their
money on tho daughter of Qlencl; as
long as the book-makers caro to lay
odds. Tho Dwyers dcclaro that Sir
Dixon cannot bo beaten. Badge also
has a large following and whilo'ho has
never proved his ability to go the dis
tance, lts Unlit Impost and pnod riding
by Hnyward ought to bring hiln
out ahead of his field. Fides and
Baceland aro stable companions and
whichever Mr. Belmont declares to
win with will carry the maroon
colors. There seems to bo con
siderable doubt whether llaecland
will start. Kellablo authorities say he
is not as fit as when ho galloped homo a
winner at Sheepshead last year, and tho
stablo Is particularly sweet on Fides.
Coiiie-toTaw is particularly well
thought of. He moves In grand Btyle,
and has improved wonderfully since last
season. A well-known turf writer, In a
special dispatch last night regarding this
horse, said : "Tho objection I.havo heard
most frequently advanced against this
horse's chances to day Is lhat'Day. who,
it Is understood, will rldo him, Is not
powerful enough to hold him together
and thus ensure his doing his best. I
am not at all sure, however, that tho
English jockoy will havo the mount,
mid I should not bo surprised to seo
cither Fitpatiick or Garrison don tho
Hough Brothers' colors at tho finish.
Be this as it may, I am satisfied tlut
the owners and their colored trainer,
Albeit Cooper, firmly beliovo that noth
ing but an accident can rob their horse
of victory. Thero aro two points that
compel mo to adhere to ray selection of
ConiO'to-Taw to win tho Brooklyn
handicap, lie has alreadv covered this
course In faster tlmo than any of tho
hoisesthat will oppose him to-morrow
have ever traveled tho distance. This
is a matter of history.
"I also learned at Gravesend today
from n source which I regard as en
tirely reliablothatComo to-Taw worked
the mile and n-quartcr a few days ago
in faster timo than any of tho others
havo show In their trials. Wo may
leasonably expect that a colt showing
it mill) ami a quarter as a 3-year-old in
2:00 with 120 pounds in tho saddle will,
at -1 years old with four pounds less to
carry, beat 2.08, and that form will bo
cood enough to win to morrow's raco,
'fhls, of course, always supposing that
the hoinu lu question has remained
sound nnd Impiovcd between tho ages
of a nnd 1 to the extent one has a light
"That Como-to-Taw Is thoroughly
found I havo no reason to doubt, and
fiom his general appcaranco ami stylo
of going I am Inclined to believe tiiot
ho will strip to-morrow nt least a llvo
pounds better horsu than bo was the
day ho beat Lougstreet lu tho Brook
wood last Bcason."
Tlio starters will probably bo Raco
land, Sir Dixon, Come to Taw, Badge,
Eric, Fides, Major Dome, Cynosure,
Sorrento, Scadrlft, Castaway II., Cas
sltis, Flood Tide and Vcngcur,
It is Impossible to glvo nn accurnto
list of jockeys. Thero Is do certainty as
to who will ride Sir Dixon, although
Garrison Is generally credited with tho
mount. Hamilton will almo.U certainly
bo on Fides, Hnyward will steer Badge,
Warwick is booked for Krlc, McCarthy
for Flood Tide, Day for Como-to-Taw

Harrigan into the wings nnd said ho

Incidents or tlio Gront Show,
Had Gibbons or Macauloy or any
other of tho Tamous hlstoiians" seen tho
production of Nero at tho circus lost
night they would want to rovlso It. If
onfc wants to study Roman history ho
wants to chum nnd chat with Nero aud
indulgo In small-talk with grave nnd
reverend Senntfirsln their stately togas,
patricians in their gorgeous costumes,
censors In all tho prldo of ofll
clal dignities, mincing courtiers
and stalwait gladiators, and
latt, but, by no means least, tho ox-eyed,
creamy-skinned, midnight-haired, lissome-limbed
darlings who mado tho
Boman life n dream of beauty and a
dnnco forever in tho olden days. You
want to bo crowded by Hctors and
jostled by gladiators nnd havo bowitch
ing glances thrown at you by vestals.
In other words you want to go behind
tho scenes and sec the burning of the
Eternal City from tho rear as a Ciutio
reporter did last night.
All is confusloji. You seo long
vistas of looso canvas and towering
heights of rigid canvas long tables,
which aro piled high with helmets,
spears, shields, bosses nnd bucklers.
Near tho main entrance Is tho dressing
room for tho colored participants.
Magnificently proportioned negroes aro
putting on tbcfr showy opparcl. Fur
ther on is tho dressing-room of tho
ladles, through which tho reportorial
eye may not penetrate, hut through tho
canvas walls como tho murmur of
many voices, and ono sees in silhouette
relief tho forms of the divino belugs
who led to tho fall of Bomo.
Now one is In tho centre of tho stage.
Thero Is a stretch of brown canvas, a
lot of pino frames and somo mysteilous
figures in black. Further on Is a long
pine table, two men arc preparing for
tho dcsttuctlon of Homo. Iron scoops
arc being filled with red flro, which is
taken out of barrels by the spadeful.
Masses of cotton, as big ns beer koss,
nro saturated with alcohol nnd placed
in shallow metal pans. At the extromo
end of tho apptan way aro tho dressing
rooms of tho supernumeraries. All Is
glitter, glaro and movement.
Suddenly tho leader sings out: "Pro
cession form," and the visitor has just
time to retreat to tho side, as tho
ladles of tho ballet begin to pour out of
thcii- dressing-rooms. What a dream
of loveliness was there I Three-fourths
of the ladles aro Spanish or Italian,
and their drapery gives ono a glimn3o
of necks and arms and shoulders which
would havo destroyed St. Anthony's
place in history, had ho witnessed It.
There aro girls with stately, pr petite,
or slender, or, plump, or willowy
forms. There aro girls with brown
eyes, which melt, orbluo eyes, which
dance; with flushing black eyes and
questioning hazel eyes. And tho mau
who watches thanks his stars that the
nineteenth century, or tho North
American climate does not permit of
such girls wearing such bewitching
costumes as these which pass befoio
him in kaleidoscopic display.
Tho first scene progresses and a dozen
men ascend ladders. Suddenly a whis
tle, and brawny arms pull back the
hundred yards of tho first scene. Tho
triumphal procession moves onto tho
stage ready to delight the thousands of
spectators. You aro no longer in pro
saic Washington. You "leap a chasm
of centuries and stand midst by-gono
things." You nro living in tho ilavs
when Homo was at the height of its
splendor and cruelty. Nero, that mag
nificent madman, rules the destiny of
the mistress of tho "world. You look
over the Immortal city seated on
her many hills, and scc.her gardens, her
palaces, and her coliseum. Herdsmen
from the neighboring Campagnn gaze
in rustic astonishment at tho rich dresses
of the patricians. A wrestling match
ensues, and It begins to look bad for the
aristocrats when ono of them throws
back his hood and discloses the features
of Nero. The scene changes, and It Is
fete day In the heart of Rome. Nero's
Irlumphnl procession approaches in tho
distance. It is tho grandest spectacular
display ever a(tempted, and beyond tho
power of pen to describe.
The fete Is proclaimed and the audi
ence Is treated to the gladiatorial com
bats dear to ancient R mic. Then comes
tho dancing, and what dancing! In sea
green, In pinks, in rose lints, in white,
In pearl, in all varieties of costumes
they dance no, thoy do not dance. It
Is but tho floating of summer horn
gossamer; the sinuous movements of
wavelets; the undulations of a roso
twig when the blossoms aro
heavy tho quintcsence of tho
poetry of motion, tho apotheosis
of shapely forms, the rhvthm of bodies
and limbs and nrins. But the revels
draw to an end, and suddenly Rome
begins to blaze. Down goes the cur
tain, with tho Emperor laughing In
fiendish glee, whilo tho spectators come
back to the stern reality of life in
rainy, electric-lighted Washington,
1,800 yeais after tho scenes they havo
But the audience would haTO realised
more from tho magnitude of the enter
prise had they been on tho grounds a
short while beforo and seen tho erec
tion of tho tents, and the other
woik connected with this small
world of pageantry and display. At mid
day only tho big tents which cover
eleven acres of grouud were In position,
and tho hundreds of employes were
scattered over tho placo driving stakes,
unpacking boxes and putting up tho
scenery in tho vast amphitheatre.
When the parado returned to tho
grounds, shoitly after 1 o'clock, the
confusion was doubled. Tho heavy
wagons were wheeled Into placo In tho
menagcilo tent, and tho whole scene
seemed a pandemonium. But order
was quickly brought out of chaos, and
tho performance commenced on
Not tho least entertaining poition mo
tho incidents that occur at tho main en
trance, and when tho doors wcro finally
opened and tho 18,000 peoplo begau to

Thero were mnmmas, with half adocn
little tots, miniature duplicates of thorn

Thciowas tho young fellow with his
best girl, determined sho should Havo n

which floated all the peculiarities of
those that go to mako up a great as

thociowdwas the wuy In which the
dormant dlshnuesty of tho human

Queer J'eoplo Telegraph-. Operators
Ilate to Ileal With Occasionally,
Telegraph operators with a sense of
tbo ludicrous sometimes find their dull,
every day routlno enlivened by the
amusing messages handed in by their
customers. An operator In a small
Western town, says" the Youth' Com
panion, was sitting alone In his office
when an old lady entered, who Informed
Him that she wished to send n message
to her daughter.
"How much will It C09t?" sho asked.
"Fifty cents for ten words."
"How much for five words?"
"The same. Wo do not send any
messago for less than fifty cents."
"All I want to say is, 'I will come
home to-morrow,' and that will bo tho
same as If thero wero ton words, eh?"
"Well, I may as well have my money's
wuth," she said reflectively. Then
holding up one hand and counting tho
words off on her fingers, she added:
"Johnny cut a tooth yesterday."
"There," she said, "you send that
along, too, to make us even," and with
n comfortablo sense that she had not
been defrauded by the company sho
went on Her way.
The operator was of too sympathetic
a nature to be amused ovor tho distress
of n young man who, three minutes
after tho departuro of the last train for
tho day, rushed up to tho window and
dashed off tho following messago to be
