The game to-morrow between Hie
Athletics and Nationals, piomlscs to
bo one of tho mo3t Interesting of the
Reason. Though tho former nro only
fifth In tho race, yet they are ono of tho
strongest nines in tho American Asso
elation, and about tho only club in that
association that the Nationals could not
defeat hi Aptil. Our own club ot
August is not our club of April, as the
Sttaker City boys will soon discover,
arrwlll pllob, and will probably bo
suppoitcd by Fulmar. You may set It
down as a vietoty tor tlio .Nationals.
Tho wonderfully good ball the homo
nine has been playing lately, has largely
Increased tho iittondanco lit the games,
and no doubt the full capacity of the
gtounds will be tested to-ntotrow.
Tho Nationals played a beautiful
gamo yestotday, and ono well worth
going far to see. The visitors only suc
ceeded In hitting llarr safely twico, and
ho was Biippoited by Trott, without an
error. In fact, only one etror was
mado by the whole nine. Their bat
ting was ipillo fire, Hoover leading.wlth
four lilla. It Is hard to sec how tho
Virginias can beat them as now con
stituted. Following ato the tesults of yester
day's games: Hoston St. Louis, 7 to 2;
Providence Dettolt, 11 to 0; Cincin
nati St. Louis, 3 to I; Virginia Lan
caster, 7 to (!; National Newark, 15 to 0.
The batting and Holding avciagcs ot
tho Nationals for tho season aro some
thing to bo piotid of. Hutch leads the
former and Bur the latter. Hoover
stands a falrehmcoof making 100 base
hits lltet, while Knowlos and White fol
low hint closely.
Manager Scanloit will go with tlio
Nationals on their ttlp tho last of tho
week to Not f ilk and IUchinond. The
club plays blx gnmea and It Is safe to
Etty that thoy v,U win live of them,
PiCbldent, Secretary, 'Iicasurer, et
al. DIddelboek of the Eastern Associa
tion has concluded to accept the Hat of
the association and turn over his papers
to his successor, Mr. Ballard of Nowark.
This I a very scnslblo conclusion on tho
pail of Mr. DIddelboek, and will pro
vent dlsagteeablo consequence.
Mr. Secrotary Young intimated in a
Sunday paper that the Cinclnuatis
would tako the place ot tho Bull'alocsln
the League. The Clnclnnatls would bo
glad to do so if the League would con
sent to Sunday games. This the League
will not do, hence the hitch. About
one half of the season's prtronago in
Cincinnati Is ictelved trout the Sunday
games, and tho dhcetors hold that tho
club could not live without them. The
Critic has it Itoni good authority that
Pittsburg will take Bull'iiloes place, and
that Brooklyn will tako tho place of
Providence hi the League. The "Mets"
will mucly disband at tho close of tho
season, thus leaving three vacancies in
thoAmctican Association, and it will
bo very chilly If tho Nationals do not
get one of thetu.
Tliebloiiti last night lllled the liver

cult matter. The Columblas did not
attempt to take their eight out, but tho

Tin: Cuitio's Monmouth tips have
been excellent lately. Tho races to
day, however, aro somewhat hauler to
pick. For tho llrst event either Sutler
or Richard L. The Eceond tace should
fall to either Ilult'alo or Long Stop. Tho
third race will bo tho hardest to pick,
but cither Pontlac or Richmond should
win It. The fourth race should go to
Bat nes or East Ly tine, and tho fifth
race to Valley Fotgo or Enor.

"Rocoaccio.1' The whole season of
8tiniuier opera wa3 crowned last even
ing by tlio performance of F. von
Suppo'B comic opera, "Boccaccio." with
Mls3 Jcanulo Winston In tho title rolo.
"Boccaccio," although quite as well
known generally us tho other operas of
Stippc, Is almost a stranger In tills city.
Tho opera as produced last night was
somowhat of a rovlslon, but by no
means equal to tho oilglnal. Taken as
a whole, It was the most creditable per
formance yet given by the Winston
company. Mls3 Jeannlo Winston ap
peared at her best, and the rolo Is well
stilted for her volatility. -Her ability
as a commtditnnc was fully demon,
sttatcd In the part of tho giocer's boy.
Messrs. Allen, Hogan and Bell, the
comic Irmnvlrato of tho com
pany, were even funnier than
usual, and their burlcsquo trio
In tho Hi st act captured tho audience.
Miss Roso Lelghton as Pcrontlla mado
a great hit. Miss Annie Meyer, who
has hcrctototo taken a subordinate
part, greatly surprised evcryono with
tho richness of her voleo and tho vivac
ity of Iter action In the (Initio to tho first
act. She was enthusiastically encored.
Her voice Is clear, sweet and strong,
and far surpasses that of many a one
who poses as a comic opcta pilma
donna. Miss Meyer is too good to ie
main lu tlio chorus. With tho devotion
to her piofesslon, which she doubtless
possesses, sho will before long becotno
a leading light on tho light opera stage.
Site has not a commanding stage pres
ence, but with vivacity and chic that
lack will icadlly pas3 unnoticed. Best
wishes for her succeis. Miss Louise
Scat lc sang with her usual sweetness,
the audience being greatly pleased with
her rendition of tho old lovo ballad, In
troduced in the llrst act. The chorus,
which has now such gteat favor in this
city, did what little wot k it had to do
hi a sphlted manner. Tho beautiful
prelude to "Boccaccio" was entirely
omitted hist night. This should bo rcm
Idlcd. "Boccaccio" will run through
tho week, with no matlucoon Saturday.

all tho transactions Fpeclllcd in (he

purchase of butter for thoGrcely Relief
Expedition, and beef and pork, and
the eoutiacts foi ditty boxes
and mattiesses, in all ot these cases he
had confertcd with the Secretary of the

tho Secretary, He donied hi the broad
est posslblo way having ever been Im
properly Influenced hi any way In his
olllclal notion in piitcliaslng supplies
and stores, but that his action had ben
dictated in every cao by a desire for
what he believed to bu the best interests
of tho pcrvlcc. On cross-examination ho
said ho had been Intimate from boy
hood with Mr. Drown, the contractor,
and also with his father, but that had
nothing to do with his olllolal action in
any ease; he knew nothing of a Con
