SOME CHANCE BARGAINS II THE UPHOLSTERY DEPT.
The Sundat IIeuald has steadily urged tho
local athletic clubs to make an effort to bring
berc the National regatta for 1S91, and from tho
despatches printed below it looks as if the idea
bad taken firm hold. It is the proper course to
pursue, and will bring back prestige to the city,
credit to our clubs, and produco harmony.
Now, Analostnns, Columbias, and Potoiuacs, go
to work and make it a great affair.
(Special to The Sunday Herald.
New Youk, Oct. IS. Tho executive com
mittee this evening at the request of
Mr. Gibson voted that Washington bo
given the preference on tho question as
to a location of the regatta of '01. Tho re
quest was suggested by the successful manage
ment of the games of the A. A. U. on Analostan
Island last Saturday. The regatta was asked
for '01, because in '92 it would be impolitic to
undertake it, aud Chicago has the option for '93.
The cross protests entered by the Manhattan
and New York Athletic Clubs against certain
representatives of the two organizations are
likely to react to the advantage of the Amateur
Athletic Union in the.long run aud will prevent
in the future tho indiscriminate rotation of
high-standing athletes from the smaller clubs to
the richer one. Tho Amateur Union was or
ganized to correct all evils that tended toward
professionalism, and they must meet tho issue
squarely if they desire to keep their high stand
ing. Tho New York Athletics and the Manhat
tan Athletics in their greed to secure points for
the Bailey, Banks & Biddle trophy allowed
nothing to stand in their way, and the manner
of securing the services of Queckberner, Mit
chell, and Nickerson from the other clubs was,
to say the least, decidedly tainted with sus
picion. Delegate Storm at the recent meeting
6aw the impending danger and Introduced a
resolution to prohibit tho clubs from keeping
athletes in training year in and year out to
travel from point to point to encage in games.
This alone, Mr. Storm thinks, is outside the
pale of amateurism, for if the average athlete
can do this he has no visible means of support,
and thereby is living on his club and naturally
is a professional. The best amateur athletes in
America are those produced on the banks of
the Schuylkill and Potomac Rivers, and when
the clubs of the other sections follow our ex
ample they will be better off in the light of
The new club-house of the Potomac Athlet
ics, while not very imposing externally, will be
very homelike and extremely pretty on the in
side. It will be fitted up In handsome and
comfortable style. The club has control of
seven rooms, two large hallways, and other
apartments fit for storing stock. The entire
upper or third story is to be used as the gymna
sium, pool, and billiard-rooms, while the second
story will be devoted to the reading and reception-rooms.
The decorations will be in charge
of a prominent upholsterer. The rooms will be
newly papered. The members are Individually
working to make tho place a credit to the or
ganization. The committee expect to have
everything ready by November 1, and then they
will give a house-warming. The fact that the
club has decided to secure suitable quarters has
already commenced to bear good results, as tho
membership committee have a dozen applica
tions on hand.
The Georgetown College foot-ball team is
practicing dally on the campus in front of tho
college. They have now one of the prettiest
fields this 6ide of New York, and Father Har
lan, who has charge of this part of the univer
sity, says in a short while it will be equal to the
best in America. The team, under the captaincy
of O'Donnell, is rapidly getting into form.
Among some of the players are O'Donnell,
Isaac and Ernest Dyer, McCoy, Henchoy, Field
ing, Keys. O'Neil, and Dally, George E. and
S. Smith, Denver, Murphy, Ilennou, Kauffinan,
and Sullivan. It was expected that the Glea
son boys would come back to college this
year, but they so far have failed to put in an
The success that attended the great athletic
meeting here on Saturday last should stimulate
the athletic organizations of this vicinity to
greater activity, and they should strive to bring
out all the talent possible in their ranks. AVith
every facility for practice, there Is no reason why
next year a Detter snowing suoum not oe made
by our athletes. True, the Columbia boys did
not score a point few expected they would
still they made the champions hustle to get away
from them, and this Bhould stir them forward
for greater efforts next season.
It is expected that the Potomac Athletics will
make a move in the line of foot-ball tho coming
week, and that a preliminary game for practice
will be arranged with the Georgetown College.
Capt. McCoy may select a team from the fol
lowing to make the start: Baker, Finckle,
Furaphrey, Noah, Doyle, Elmore, Duffy, Lib
bey, Sawyer, French, Hillyer, Baibarln, Fisher,
and Zappone. It certainly would enthuse tho
members if the measure was tried on. A meet
ing will take place at 4:30 Monday at the boat
house to formulate the movement.
Boynton was obliged to resign his position as
field captain of the C. A. C. loot-ball team be
cause ho could not spare tho necessary time for
practice. Ills interest in the team, howover, has
not lessened, and he will continue to aid them
as much as possible by coaching tho candidates.
His place as captain will be filled for tho pres
ent by Wells, who now plays riht tackle,
"VellB Is u veteran player from Lafayette Col
lege, and Is thoroughly conversant with all tho
polnt6 of the game. Ho is an earnest woiker
and will make a good captain.
The Potomac Athletics have secured tho entire
building at tho southwest corner of Seventeenth
6trect and Pennsylvania avenue for their winter
quarters. The place will bo made as comfort
able as posslblo, and tho committee In whose
charge it Is Messrs. William Ollloy, George
Fague, C. A. Zuppono, and J. J. Noah expect
to lit itup in splendid 6tyle. Every convenience
for tho comfort of tho members and their friends
will bo placed In the building.
Hub Smith could not have desired a better
evidence of his popularity among tho Colum

very satlbfuctorily oil Wednesday by defeating

good material, but play an individual game, and
do not work together as a team. To a certain
extent tho same can be said of the Columbias.
Their work lacked the snap and vim necessary
for success. They were slow to play tho ball,
and lined up in a tardy manner. Tho backs
should play more together, and aid one another
in their runs. A great deal of fumbling was
done, and the necessity of some practice in fall
ing on the ball was plainly evident. The play
ing of Butterworth, Wells, Hacker, and Harban
is to bo commended. Dashiell did some good
punting. These faults can be easily overcome
by steady practice, and they will become more
apparent to the team when they meet some well
drilled college eleven. Messrs. Boynton and
Tyler were referee and umpire respectively.
The Columbia team was as follows: Rushers,

A Field Day at Georgetown College.
Tho campus of Georgetown College was

their friends, who assembled to witness tho an

weather helped to attract many ladles and tho
open stands wero well filled with them and
their beautiful dressing mado tho sight a pretty

creditable, notably tho 100-yard race, which tho

Philadelphia, Oct. 18. A prettier or closer
game of foot-ball was never played on tho
grounds hero than tho match between Lehigh
aud Pennsylvania to-day. Both colleges put
the best teams they could obtain In tho field.
At tho outset Lehigh rushed the playing and
succeeded iu keeping tho ball dangerously near
their opponents' goal, but they failed to score.
By a remarkable run from near tho centre of
tho field Church, of tho Feunsylvanias, made tho
first touch-down for his team. No goal was
kicked, and tho first half ended 4 to 0 in Penn
sylvania's favor, During this half Lehigh lost
tho services of her captain and end rush, Emery.
Dashiell, her crack half-back, was also obliged
to retire, and Walker, tho other end, was dis
qualified for slugglug. Crippled in this fashion,
Lehigh finished the game and held Pennsylvania
down to another touch-down. Tho game closed
with a score of 8 to 0 In favor of Pennsylvania.
Thegamo was won on its merits, however, and
Lehigh was fairly defeated.

The base-ball situation is getting Into very
peculiar 6hape, and it is evident that the old
League still maintains tho upper hand in tho
deals now going on. It will bo remembered
that about this tlmo last year, when tho players
revolted and cut away from their old employes,
they said that in tho future they would manage
their own affairs to the exclusion of tho monop
olists who had hitherto controlled them. Well,
they organized stock companies, and In overy
Instance placed at tho head of affairs men who,
If not monopolists, wero very anxious to become
such, and the consequence "was as tho season
advanced they found themselves in the tolls of
men just as tyrannical as those they had cut
loose from. The tyranny complained of in tho
first instance was only a strong law of disci
pline, but tho players could not bo argued into
tho belief that it was for their good, hence they
broke tho halter, strayed away only to find tho
reins tighter in tho now field. Now, theso capi
talists whom they placed at tho head of affairs
have commenced to dicker with tho old League
magnates for terms, and tho old Leaguers, rec
ognizing that It would bo suicidal to continue
tho struggle, have willingly met the representa
tives of the Brotherhood, not tho players, for
they refuse point blank to dicker with them, and
the chances are decidedly favorable for a cessa
tion of tho fight. President Young says that
tho deal is on simply with the controlling men
of the clubs, not tho players, and he is confident
It will como out successful. If it doesn't, It
means that base ball Is dead for 1891.
