theatrical company at Albaugli's. Tlio
controversy between tho friends of tho
two clmmpions as to tho roluttvo merits
of their favorites has resulted in an offer
by llosmcr to row a match with Leo next
spring. , .
As a. puarnntoo of his intention to fill
his part of tho offer, Hosmer .and his'
backers, Messrs. Jefferson and Taylor,
proprietors of tho "Dark Secret,' will
meut Leu's friends, if thoy como, at tho
Ilnrris IIouso this afternoon at 5 o'clock,
to put up a forfeit. Hosmer was scon
this morning by tin Evismi.no Post re
porter. "I am perfectly willing to row Leo,"
he said. "I havo met htm thlrty.ono
times nnd defeated lilm twenly-tlirco
times, and am not nfrahl to row a match
with him. Hut I could not row until
noxt season, as my engagement with tho
'Dark Secret" will prevent. My backers,
Messrs. Jefferson and Taylor, will btanil
by me, nnd if Leo means business ho can
Just romo over hero this afternoon nnd
put up his forfeit."
Mr. Leo and Mr. O'Connor wero found
at dinner at "Dick" Morgan's, ou D
street. On the table was it juicy and
temptingly tender looking leg of mutton,
into which heavy inroads lind already
been inndc. A stack of thick slices of
brown bread nnd a lavish supply of
vegetables completed the midday menu
of 'tho oarsmen. "You see, they don't
cat anything," said Mr. Morgan, pointing
to tlio noarly finished leg of mutton.
"Oh, wo must eat heartily," replied
O'Connor. "Wo cat n whole leg of mut
ton every day for dinner, und manago to
got away with a right hearty breakfast
and supper also."
When ask od about tho reported chal
lenge from Hosmer, Lee said:
"Well, I know of no regular challenge
I understand Hosmer will put up a forfeit
to-day for mo to cover, but 1 will not
tako any stco in this matter. I will say
this, however: If Hosmer wants to row
a match with mo let him go to somo
reputablo newspaper nnd put up $500,
draw up a challenge and I will sign
nrticlcs to row with hliu in tho season.
But I will pay no attention to anything
other than this regular way of making a

Tho brawny oarsman paused in tho act

"Wclli'I donTbeTIovo in useless talk

Mr. O'Connor expressed himself
well pleased with tho course over which
ho is to row and his only fear is that tho

ished by tho residents in that section of
tlio city. They think that tho attorney
for tlio District should look out for tho
interests of the people of thu District.
This morning a delegation of South
"Washington citizens presented the fol
lowing to tho Commissioners;
"In the interest of tho citiens of
South Washington, and acting for tlio
South Washington Protective Associa
tion, wo aro constrained to nsk your hon

all in violation of tho law. You o.vam
ined tlio records of your ofllco and was s,o

you referred tho matter to your attorney
for his opinion.
"About two weoks ago ho sent ybu a
written opinion, which stated that tho
acts of the Kallroad Company iu both
instances wero in direct "violation
of the law; ho advised you at tho
same tlmo ngalnst forcing tlio llail-toad-Company
to comply with tlio law.
One of tho reasons advanced was be
causo he was weary of fighting tliu Bail

think it good policy on your pajt to get
into a content with them, even to protect
tho citizens of South Washington against

ho gets n Intgo salary to defend tho citi

also slated how in his opinion tho South
Washington Association people could
proceed against the railroad company,
as well as how the railroad company
could bnfllo them iu that proceeding.
Ho took it upon himself to give you his
opinion of the South Washington Pro
tective Association, in paiticulnr, and
the South Washington people In gen
eral; he called tho former a syndlcato
nnd spoko of the latter as carrying ou an
endless war with tho railroad company,
all of which seems not to meet approval.
"His opinion in this icgard wo ocllovo
