The plan of President Hewitt to inaugurate
Sunday ball-playing ut Atlantic Pane, in
tub city, was kuocked awry yesterday after
' ' " 1 " "" I " j... I ,- .,,-,.. , , ... .. ,!,., .. . , ,, , .
noon by tho issuing of the following per
emptory order by tho Commissioners: "lhat
tho Major of Police is hereby instructed to pre
vent the plaviug of a proposed game of baso
ball by tho Washington Baso Ball Club in the
city of Washington or tho District of Columbia
on Sunday, Juno 15 instant." Accompanying
this letter was another one stating that in case
the game was persisted in tho Major of Police
was instructed to use such forco as might be
necessary to prevent It. This emphatic order
was signed by Commissioner Douglass, as presi
dent of tho board, and was delivered by special
messenger to President Howett at his place of
Immediately on receiving tho notice Presi
dent Howett recognized tho foolishness of
kicking against tho whole police forco of tho
District and negotiations woro at once resumed
with tho owners of tho Driving Park, near Four
Mile Run, and a contract was quickly entered
into for a lease. The game, therefore, that was
to have been played at Atlantic Park to-day
will como oft at tho Driving Park, and trains
will run out of tho Baltimore and Potomac
depot every ten minutes if the crowd justi
Tho Commissioners baso their position on tho
old common law of England, which held that
the Christian religion was part of that law. Ball
playing on Sunday is a violation of tho Chris
tian religion, the Commissioners hold, as it
violates tho Fourth Commandment.
President Howott said there was no law to
justify tho action of the Commissioners, but ho
bowed to their authority and would not causo
any infraction of their order at his park. Ills
attorney, Mr. Harry E. Davis, formerly United
States District Attorney of tho Commissioners'
office, ridiculed tho nctiou of the Commis
sioners as far as law was concerned, and said
that in a court it would not stand for an In
stant. Tho Sunday rest people yesterday were
very jubilant over tho action of the Commis
sioners, and hoped that a law could bo un
earthed that would prevent tho leaving of
trains for such gatherings.
Wilmington, Del., June 14. The Wilming
ton Club to-day secured control of the ball
paik at Atlantic City and will play champion
ship games there on Sundays, beginning to
morrow week with Washington. A portion of
the club's "home" games will also be plaved at
Easton, Pa., June 14. Manager Parks and
leu members of tho Easton Base Ball Club of
tho Interstate League were arrested this even
ing on tho charge of violating the law in play
ing a game on. Sundaj last. Parks demanded,
aud was given a hearing on writ of habeas cor
pus before Judges Reedcr aud Schuyler, aud
the manager and players were discharged from
custody, Judge Reeder holdinc that there had
been no breach of the peace, and that the play
ers could not be hold for trial at court. All
that could be douc is to fine the men under the
act of 1794. The club will play to-morrow.
Several players have been released by one
Players' League club to another without a cent
of ''blood" money passing between the two
clubs. Docs anybody suppose the Chicago Na
tional League Club would have released George
Vanllaltren to Brooklyn, the Philadelphia Club
Daniel Shannon to Now York, or Boston Richard
F. Johnston to New York without receiving
"sales" money? Not much. Tho Players'
League has no use for the methods of the Na
tional League aud will not resort to them.
Every club in the National League is losing
money. To change tho schedule now would be
too much of a humiliation. Yet that's what the
old magnates must do or ruin themselves. They
sowed the wind aud are reaping the whirlwind.
Rev. J. II. Darlington, of Christ Church, one
of the aristocratic churches of Brooklyn, is a
great admirer of baso ball and Ward's team,
and last Sunday night preached a sermon on
base ball, to which he invited AVard and his
team. Tho boys all went to church, and with
pleasure heard the reverend gentleman com
mend them for the Brotherhood's firm stand
against Sunday playing.
King Kelly has got into hot water because he
released little Dickey Johnson, tho greatest
centre-fielder in America, in order to keep
Brown on the team. All the enthusiasts of
Boston are mad as hornets, and say that John
son was released because he wasn't an Elk.
Johnson was immediately signed by the New
York Brotherhood team and is playing great

Bird is, all and all, as good a general player
as Washington has secured in a number of
years. 110 is a spienum muer, a lair catcner,
and above the average as a fielder.
Daniels does not exactly fill the bill, for ho
has pitched amateurish ball ever since he joined
tho team. Phillips and Underwood are first
class, and if another like them could bo secured
afllairs would go on better.
The games at Atlantic Park tho present week
are as follows: To-day and Monday, Wilming
tons; Wednesday aud Thursday, Nowarks;
The Wilmington Club has decided that no

Mr. W. C. Protzman, secretary of the 1'atapsco
Navy, writes Tun Heiiald that the regatta of
tho Baltimore club3 on tho 25th promises to bo
a first-class affair in every respect. Tho navy
has been rather free In expenditures, and for
tunate winners In the several events will receive
very handsome medals, besides silken trophies
to the club. Tho Varunas and Nonpariels, of
Now York, will send junior and senior scullers,
aud tho same Is expected from the Potomacs
and Columblas, of Washington. Tho Ionas,
Vespers, and Pcnnsylvanlns, of Philadelphia,
will also send scullers. Junior fours aro ex
pected from the Columblas. of Washington, and
probably tho Potomacs.whilo tho Arlels and Nep
tunes, of Baltimore, will make entries In this
race. Tho senior four will bo contested by tho
crack Ariel crew, consisting of Vansant 1, Ren
wick 2, McClelland ,1, Slack stroke, aud one
from tho Fotomncs, and probably ono from
Philadelphia. The gig race will find tho Arlels:
Hartllg 1, Holton 2, Shrcvcn 3, Protzman
stroke, with one probably from tho Columblas.
In tho clght-oared shell race tho Arlels have
borrowed an eight from the Columblas, of
Washington, and will place the following crow
In it: Hartllg 1, Holton 2, Shrlvcr 3. Pratzman
4, Vansant T, Renwick 0, McCIelian 7, and
Slack stroke. Tho famous Vesper crew, of
Philadelphia, aud tho Potomacs, of Washing
ton, aro expected in this race, so It will be seen
that tho affair really gives promise of being 11
big affair. Every attention will bo shown visi
tors during their visit to tho regatta.

greater this season than for the past three years.
It looks as if there was to bo a big revival in
this grandest of all out-door sports, similar to
that which the North is at this time experienc

four or five fours, two or three gigs, several
singles, and the barges of the several clubs on
tho water at tho same time, and as they all
skim along, each oarsman putting his best work
in, it makes a decidedly attractive sight. There
is no jarring this season, but all moves along
smoothly, affordine; reasonable hopes for a big
regatta here in September.
Psotta is training on Lake Wildemere, out of
reach of the Loudon sports, who besieged him
last year aud lured him into the frivolity which
ruined his chances. With fair luck he will this
year take the llenly diamond sculls back to the
New York Athletic Club. The English amateur
champion, Guy Nickalls, who defeated Psotta
last year, says he will row this year. Ho has be
gun training. Gardner, ihc stroke of Cam
bridge, will also contest, and the race promises
to be excitiug.

Philadelphia, Juno 14. The fifth annual
field meeting of the Athletic Club of tho Schuyl
kill Navy was held this afternoon at the grounds
at Stenton. Tho entry list contained 237 names
and embraced nearly all tho leading amateurs
of the East. There was a lurge attendance,
and the events were all very interesting. Among
tho athletic clubs represented besides tho Ath
letic Club of tho Schuylkill Navy were tho New
York, Manhattan, Berkeley, and America, of
Now York; New Jersey, of Bergen Point; War
ren, of Wilmington; Columbia, of Washington;
Kings County Wheelmen, Wilmington, West
Side, and Brooklyn wheelmen, and many local
clubs. There were fifteen events on tho pro
gramme, and tho New York Athletic Club car
ried off tho honors, with four first and threo
second prizes. Athletic Club Schuylkill Navy
got three firsts and four seconds. Tho Co
lumblas, of Washington, did not get a mention
in any of tho ovents.
Tho weather tho past week has been so warm
lhat our tennis players were compelled to for
sako tho courts almost completely. Tho Balti
moro tournament has given a zest to tho interest
in the game hero, so much so that it is now pro
posed to hold inter-urban contests at intervals
of two weeks. Such a plan would undoubtedly
do much to improve tiiopiay 01 tno w asiungton
men. Their showing at Baltimoro was gratify
ing In the extreme; still, if anything can bo dono
to Improvo our local standard, tho opportunity
should undoubtedly bo seized. Tho establish
ment of periodical iournoments between Wash
ington mid Baltimoro cannot but result in great
good to tho tennis players of each city. With
tho exception of Mr. Post, tho Baltimoro men
aro ou a lovel with us, and tho meeting
of contestants so evenly matched
would evidently bo a good thing. Tin:
Hr.itAi.D has been at all "times iu tho front
rauk on all athletic sports, and heartily wel
comes the proposition to establish inoro inti
mate tennis relations with our slstor city. Wo
learn that tho movement receives tho hearty
approval of tho Baltimoro players, who tiro en
tirely iu touch with us on tho plan suggested.
As soon as tho Intenso warm weather Is over
wo may look for somo very interesting bouts
at tho net between the leading players of both
cities. Let the tocsin sound all along tho lino,
and let our players put on their very best tennis
form and carry off a majority of tho contests to
tho credit of our city.
Mr. Charles McCawloy, who was tho winner
of tho singles ut Baltimoro, has decided to 6top
playing until fall. Ho finds that tho oxerclso
Is too violent for tho summer mouths, aud uutll
cooler weather sets Iu will bo merely a "looker
on in tenuis."
Kennon Peter, nothing daunted by tho ex
treme heat during tho past week, was a familiar
figure at tho Bachelor courts.
It is with pleasure wo chronicle tho return to
the city of John Pope, who has been absent all
too loug. Ho has again assumed control of his
racquet, and his play during tho past week
shows that his haud has lost nouo of Us cunning.
