$Tbe Columblas, by winning the Staten Islnnd
$1,000 clinmploti8hIp trophy and defeatiuK tbo
Potomacs, have once more advanced to tho
front ns tho leading rowing organization of this
city. Everything favored the Stnten Island
boys for a successful affair, as Monday last was
n perfect day for rowlne. Tho water of tho Kill
you Kull was as smooth as a mill pond. Thcro
was a largo contingent of local enthusiasts pres
ent, aud tho victory of tho Columblas caused
unbounded jubilation. In fact, the boys bought
up Staten Island from Sir. Erastus Wimau, and
ran It to suit themselves for a while. The host
of Potomac members as well as tho crow who
were present joined In tho jollification, aud ad
mitted that their opponents beat them out be
cause they wero a better-trained and faster
crew. Every one Interested ulready knows all
tho details of tho race and that the Columblas
assumed tho lead at tho outset, wero never
beaded, aud camo homo winners In the remark
able fast time of 4:40J, the Staten Islands sec
ond, and Potomacs third, In 4:57i. The other
crews wero the New York Athletics, Arthur
Kulls, and Tritons. Tho Now Yorks broko n
rudder and retired; the Tritons also unshipped
their rudder, but continued In the race until tho
finish, the coxswain steering the boat by means
of his hands. It was a creditable piece of work.
The rowing of tho Columblas was tho finest seen
on tho course, and their stylo and work brought
on Courtney, thclrtrainer, many wotdsof praise.
Their blade work was perfect, while their re
covery and llnlsh was as near perfect as could
be. They never sent their stroke up over forty
four, but tho power was there, and it made the
boat hum through the water. Courtney claimed
that the crew was fifteen seconds faster than the
one at the national regatta, a statement that Is
borne out by the splendid work of Monday. As
most of tho men are now enthused tho crew will
be kept together, and early next spring will
enter tho aquatic contests with renewed vigor.
The Potomac crew was possibly the slowest ever
sent out by tho club, as a defeat of seventeen
seconds in a mllo race Is something dreadful.
Individually the men arc good oarsmen strong,
hearty, and stayers in pushing races. This
event ends the rowing campaign hereabouts,
and the Columblas are King.
''The meeting of tho Amateur Athletic Union,
October 13, on Analostan Island, will be the
greatest gathering of cracks that has ever taken
place in America," said Howard Perry, treas
urer of the Union and secretary of the Colum
bia Athletic Club, to a representative of Tnn
Heham) on the Staten Island athletic grounds
last week. In corroboration of this statement
the trainers of the New York Athletics and
Manhattan Athletics, Jimmy Oliver and James
Robinson, said that they had more men under
their care than ever before. The New York
Athletics will send this fleet array of talent:
Messrs. W. C. Downes, W. C. Dobm, W. B.
Coster, J. P. Lee, F. W. Kobinson, P. Vreden
burgh, K. C. Fisher, C. J. "Wiegand, and "W. II.
Wright. Tho Manhattan Athletics will send
Luther II. Carey, M. Remington, Fred Westing,
II. L. Ilalloch, A. A. Jordan, A. F. Copeland,
A. B. George, T. P. ConuefT, C. A. J. Queck
brener, J. C. Devereaux, E. W. Goff, F. L.
Lambreeht, It. K. Pritchard, George S. Estes,
and J. S. Roddy. The Bcrkely Athletics will
Fend the Mapes brothers, Herbert and
Victor. Tho New Jersey Athletics will
come headed by that noted cross-country
runner, Willie Day, while associated with him
will be M. O'Sullivan, S. E. Corbett, and the
great E. Hyoitberg. Boston will send her
champion nll-arounu athlete, Daniel Long, to
trether with J. E. Morse and G. L. Batchelder.
Then Detroit will send Champion Owens, while
St. Louis will send Murphy, and together with
the array of talent from the Schuylkill Navy,
Chicago, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and other
places it will bo seen that Washlngtou will be
overrun with strong-limbed and fleet-footed
athletes from every section of the country on
and about October 13. The meeting will attract
a great crowd to the city. The Columbia Ath
letics, under whose auspices tho meeting is to
be held, are devoting a good deal of attention
to the coming meet, and will spare neither ex
pense nor labor to make it successful. Tho
track and grounds on Analostan Island are
already In eood condition, but Trackmaster
O'Nell Is working to make it better every day.
A commodious frame house has been erected on
the island, to bo used as dressing-rooms for
competitors. Tho grand 6tand will be larco
enough to accommodate three thousand people,
whilo a perfect steam ferry will bo arranged be
tween tho club-hou6o and wharf on tho athletic
Tho recent meeting of tho Amateur Athletic
Committee in Now York was unusually pro
tracted. It commenced one afternoon, a recess
was taken, and on reassembling tho committee
remained in session from 8 o'clock until 4:30 tho
next morning. The principal subject was the
Malcolm n. Ford case, which has taken up tho
attention of tho Union for months. It was re
ferred to a committee with full instruction to
investigate and report. Tho Columblas, of this
city, and tho Now Jersey Athletics wero given
power to arrange monoy matters satisfactory to
themselves in tho games of ball for tho Eastern
Chicago has an optlonon tho National regatta
for 1893, and Washington can have it In either
1891 or 1892. As tho last is election year it
wouldn't do to liavo it hero then, but our clubs
should make n move for it next year. Wash
iucton is the placo for 1891, and a strong effort
should bo mado to get it. Let our clubs start
tho boom about December and keep it up all
winter. With such a crow as tho Columblas
there is no reason why championship honors
should not come this way.
Tho Bradford Boat Club Is in trouble, and It
all comes out of tho recent race at Worcester,
when tho Atalantas defeated them. Charges
and countercharges of selling out havo been
publicly made, The question again arises, How
long is tho amateur world to recognizo such
professionals? They are professionals; 60 are
tho Atalanths, and they ought to bo blacklisted.
Tho Columblas will now devote all their time
to tho A. A. U. meeting next month, which is to
be held on Analostau Island. Tho racing last
Monday at Staten Island gave Washington vis
itors a taste of what they might expect hero at
tho championship meeting, for tho best athletes
in tho country aro now in training for tho run
Tho Columbia athletes and sprinters ran afoul
of a speedy sprinter at tho Rockvillo fair last
week. Ills name was Chichester, and ho de
feated Sam King, Dickiusou, and others, whilo
Miller Kenyon was the only ono to knock him
out, in tho 880-yard run.
Tho Potomac Athletic Club will devote tho
rest of tho present season to foot ball, tennis,
and base ball. Tho master of athletics, Mr.
Jilmore, expects to get out a first-class foot
ball eleven, with Mr. J. S. McCoy as captain.
Chichester, tho sprinter who defeated Kiug,
Dickinson, and other cracks of the Columbia
Athletics at Jiockvllle last week, has joined
the Columblas, aud will run for that club in
Tho Columbia Athletics will bo able this sea
son to produce a foot-ball team that will in all
probability be able to hold its own against any
team In America, as they havo enrolled In their
ranks more graduates of colleges who have
been foot-balllsts than any other organization
in tho East. They therefore will have little
trouble In getting a team.
Tho club hou6o of tho Potomac Athletic Club,
tho ono erected on the athletic grounds, was
broken open early last week and all tho sport
ing goods stolen. Tho thieves took every arti
clo used In baso ball masks, bats, balls, bases,
score-book, catcher's gloves and chest pro
tectorsbut showed a lack of good training by
leaving behind all tho tennis material. Tho
affair has been placed In tho hands of de
tectives, anu it is very likely that tho burglar
or burglars will bo caught.
Tho Columbia Club has just issued a noat
handbook of over a hundred pages. Tho book
contains the names of tho officers of the club,
members of tho various committees, plan for
organization, constitution, certificate of incor-
E oration, rules, and a complete roster of mem
ers. Tho Columbia eight has gone out of training
until next spring. Tho juniors will bo put
through a course of training on the machines In
tho gymnasium during tho winter.
Secretary Perry, of tho Columbia Athletic
Club, estimates that3,000 athletes will bo present
at tho coming meeting of tho A. A. U. here, and
bases his results on this reckoning: Tho Now
York and tho Manhattan Athletic clubs, about
three hundred members each. There will prob
ably bo five huudred more from the minor ath
letic clubs in tho vicinity of New York, as the
New Jerseys and Staten Islands; Philadelphia,
between threo hundred and five hundred; Wil
mington, 50; Baltimore, 150; Boston, 50; Detroit,
25, and St. Louis, 10.
Tho fall sports of tho Columbia Athletic
Club will bo held on Analostan Island Thurs
day, September 11, at 4 P. M. Tho games will
consist of twelve events 100-yard dash, 220
yard dash, 440-yard dash, half-mile run, 220
yard hurdle race, standing broad jump, running
broad jump, running high jump, polo vault,
throwing 10-pound hammer, putting 10-pound
shot, andone-mllo safety bicycle heat race; best
two in three. Tho 6ports promise to bo unusu
ally interesting, owing to tho large number of

the grounds. Entries will close Monday, Sep
tember 8. Appropriate medals will bo given to
those securing first and second places.
Foot ball will probably be tho absorbing in
terest at tho Columbia Club this fall. A hard
working and enthusiastic committee has been
appointed, consisting of Grant Burroughs, W.
II. Welsh, Jr., and R. W. Lee, and they arc
putting forth their best efforts to secure a team
which will reflect creditably upon tho club. At
a meeting of tho committee held last Wednes
day Ralph W. Leo was appointed manager and
Charles II. Boy'nton is temporarily to have
charge of the team upon the field. Regular
practice games will bo begun as 60on as tho
weather moderates sufficiently. In the mean
time practice in passing, kicking, and other
rudiments of tho game will take place. Man
ager Lee has secured a big card for Thanksgiv
ing Day in arranging a game with tho well
known Lehigh University team, which made
such an excellent record last fall. Tho
University of Virginia will probably play In
Washlngtou on the 14th of November.

Despite all rumors to tho contrary, tho Broth

healthy financial backing.
There is considerable flirting going on be
tween tho American Association and tho Broth

Tho Columbia Athletic Club base-ball team
won a good game from tho Alerts on Wednes
day by a score of G to 3, Tho Alerts wero
beaten by timely battlnc by the Columblas, and
not by good fielding, for this feature of tho
game was missing. Kcyworth pitched a 6trong
game, but was not as well supported as usual.
HUNTING THE WRECKERS.
Ono of ii Series of Contemplated Train
Albany, N. Y., Sept. O.Tho leaders of tho
strike persist that tho train wreckers wero not
strikers, laying tho blame on every ono imagin
able except their own brothers. Several of tho

Robert A. Plnkerton said to-night that tho per
sons who placed tho obstructions on tho tracks
would surely bo ferreted out and ho added
when they wero it would bo found that thoy
did so at tho instigation of a man high in tho
councils of Knights. He believed this to bo ono
of a series of contemplated train wrecks by
tho same parties.

Long Island City, N. Y., Sept. 0. During
a quarrel between August Plobman and John,
Feehan, at Ravenswood, last night, tho latter
drew a clasp knife and stabbed Plobman twenty
four times in tbo head and body. None of tho

ing. A QUEER CALIFORNIA COUNTY.
So in o of Its Oddities us Discovered by u
From tho Pomona Progress.
Col. Fred W. Clemons has been telling us
about the strangest county he over knew. It is
Alpino County, located in Central California,
close to tho Nevada State line. Tho county is
almost inaccessible from California, aud every
ono who goes Into tho county must go into Ne
vada and take a long and somewhat hazardous
journey on a coach from Carson City. Thoro
aro only about 3,000 acres for farmiug in the
whole county. Mountains occupy nearly all tho
territory, and bheep-herdlng is tho exclusivo
business. Tho population is less than 350, and
of these only about 100 live- In families, tho rest
in mountaiu cabins. Tho only village in tho
county is Markleoville, tho county seat, where
tho population is 143. There is but ono doctor,
ono barber, nine professional gamblers, ono
lawyer, two merchants, four bar-rooms, two
post offices, and one hotel in tho county. Tho
county has lost over 120 of its population sinco
1880. Col. Clemons is employed by tho Census
Bureau lu examining tho records of tho county
clerks' offices in order to find tho mortgage in
debtedness and tho number of real estate trans
fers recorded for tho past ten years. He tells
us that tho county clerk and treasurer of the
county is ono man, aud it was a whole day be
fore he could bo found to open tho ofllco for uu
inspection of tho books. He said ho had not
opened tho ofllco before for over six weeks, and
that ho had no business as a couuty official
sometimes for four or five months. Col. Clem
ons found that sinco 1880 eleven mortgages aud
fourteen deeds had been recorded. In 1883 and
1880 neither a mortgage nor a deed was placed
on record. Tho county clerk and treasurer
says his annual fees aro generally about $33.
He would reslgu his position, but ho likes tho
honor of his olllce.
A Russian Cure for Toothache.
From tho Herald of Health.
A Russian practitioner recommends tho uso of
hyoscyamus seeds for toothache. His plan is to
burn tho seeds, and to convey tho smoke through
a little paper tube to tho hole iu tho tooth. Ho
declares that iu nearly all cases ono application,
or at most two, will suffice to cure the toothache.
