MATTERS OF SPORTS.
THE NEW BASE-IIAIX PARK IS AL
And It Is Going: to So a Beauty Good
Prospects for Amateur Base Ball Gen
eral Gossip of the Athletic Clubs.
A reporter of The Heiuld visited the new
base-ball park yesterday afternoon and was sur
prised to find the work so far advanced. The
contractor, Mr. James Dunn, said that he would
have finished the whole job yesterday Ifthat in
fernal ground-hog hadn't upheld his record, but
even with that drawback he was confident that
oy Wednesday evening of this week ho would
finish up. He has rushed the work despite
weather, for yesterday the grand stand was all
under cove'r, the bleachers were finished, and
the place had commenced to take on a base-ball
appearance. The diamond will bo laid off on
Monday, and on Tuesday evening the new fold
ing chairs that are to be placed in the grand
stand will bo put in position, and then every
thing will bo In readiness for the players and
the crowd. Everything looks shipshape, and
the base-ball enthusiasts will on viewing the
grounds join in the opinion that it is the pretti
est base-ball park Washington ever possessed.
For the Amateur Championship.
The C. A. C. will make strenuous efforts this
season to win the base-ball championship of the
Amateur Athletic Union, an honor they came
very near winning last year. It is probable that
Mr. James Wade will act in the capacity of
manager, as ho is a general favorite with tho
players, 16 well posted on the game, and is
capable of attending to all tho work that comes
along. It would be an excellent appointment.
Mr. Louis Wells will undoubtedly be captain,
as ho has no peer in that position. The pros
pects are that tho team will be selected from
MeBBrs. Daly, WellB, and Dickinson, catchers;
Walsh, Fuller, Homiller, Burke, and Thorn
burg, pitchers; Roman, Green, Springman, and
Wells, basemen; Bolway, short; Walsh, Phil
King, and some of the extra men, pitchers and
catchers, in the field. They ought to get a fine
team from tho above array of talent.
Tho Association has shown some grit.
The League plays winning cards at all points.
Miko Kelly says he will got a strong and win
ning team for tho Americans in Cincinnati.
Cleveland, Ohio, March 14. Tho Clove
land League Club signed Centre-fielder McAleer
Tho following players of the team rtre in the
city: Bakely, Carsey, Keefe, and Ilines. Tho
others will all be here by next Saturday.
The Association, while trying to induce Brook
lyn to join them, said they would drop Wash
ington to admit them. This was ingratitude.
Tho Washington Light Infantry .Athletic As
sociation will get out a strong team this
summer, and they will make the others hustle
to beat them.
The ground-keeper of the now park will be
Tat Fitz, who lor many years has superintended
tho various baso-ball parks in this city. It is a

60ld by Al Johnson to the League were offered
to the new American Association team. When
the proposition was made President Kramer at
once objected and 6aid emphatically that no
contract-breaker was wanted in the Association.
This is quite a contrast to the policy of the
The war of the two associations will be fought
out in Cincinnati, and for a while the eyes of
the baso-ball world will bo centred on that
pretty spot on the banks of tho Ohio.
Notwithstanding tho squabble going on be
ween the magnates, tho sale of season tickets
for the games was very flattering. It looks as
if tho season would be a financial success.
One of the strongest semi-profeseional teams
in this city will be tho Waverleys, composed
mostly of employe's in the City Post Office. If
they get time to practice they will develop into
a first-class team.
The players under engagement for the Na
ional team will begin to arrive this week and
will at onco commence to get In trim for tho
year's play. Bakeley and Keefe are already
putting in some good work, while Hines Is do
ing "gym." work at the C. A. C.
The later developments now make it appear
that tho League was badly taken in by Al
Johnson in tho deal by which it secured his
stock In the Cincinnati team. They paid $10,000
for it, when It could have been secured for one
fourth that sum. Walter Spalding was tho
cause of the bad break.
The sensation of tho week was tho selling out
of Al. Johnson, of tho Cincinnati Association
Club, to the League for $35,000. When tho
news first came in it took tho wind out of cur
Association people, and they were at a loss to
understand the reason for such a change on the
part of Johnson. They had taken him up after
the League had treated him in tho most shame
ful manner. It knocked tho Association peo
ple out, but on Thursday they rallied and
showed a decided warlike attitude by declaring
that tho city of Cincinnati was theirs, and they
intended placing a club there, no matter what
the course would be. This stimulated tho
associatlonlsts, and they onco again went up
in tho people's estimation. They raised
$40,000 to carry on tho war, and the people
of that city assured them of their sympathy in
a substantial manner. Mike Kelly, the king,
came in and signed as general manager of tho
team, and with him came Crane and Radbourne,
tho pltcbors, and Sutcllffe and Vaughn, tho
catchers. It will thus be seen that the Associa
tion has got tho grit and backbone to fight tho
ATHIiETIOS AND ROWING.
Arranging to Get the Regatta.
At tho meeting of tho conferees from tho Co
lumbia, Analostan, and Potomac clubs on Mon
day evening it was unanimously resolved to ex
tend tho invitation to tho National Association
of Amateur Oarsmen to hold their annual re
gatta on tho Potomac River next August. The
Herald in this connection takes somo credit to
itself, as it has been the only paper in tho Dis
trict to steadily advocate the bringing of tho re
gatta here. Tho National regatta is tho great
regatta of the year. It brings together the beBt
oarsincn and scullers of North America and the
contests aro tho best held for tho year. The
cost of the regatta will not reach $4,000, and it
is confidently expected that our merchants and
business men will see tho necessity of helping
the clubs meet this expense. Tho committee of
the clubs Is as follows: Messrs. J. Maury Dove,
Alex Grant, and W. Howard Gibson, C. A. C:
O. P. Schmidt, W. H. Offley, and C. A. Zap
pone, P. A. C.J Samuel Maddox, R. E. Pairo,
and W. II. McKenney, Analostan Boat Club,
and Summer Openin

French Flannel Blazers, in Blue and Black, at

From this it will be seen that tho affair Is in
charge of a capable set of business men, who
will push it to a success.
In the O. A. C. Gymnasium.
The approach of spring seems to stir up the
athletes at the Columbia Club. Tho gymna
slum and track are now filled up with tho men
who tho coming summer will carry tho winged
arrow to victory. In one corner gather tho
rowing men, discussing tho subject uppermost
in their minds and canvassing their chances In
the National regatta. Another group is made
up of baso-ball men, with brawny Paul Hines
in tho centre giving them occasional points.
Tho sprinters speed around tho track, little
Jerry Elliott leading, and showing his heels to
quite an array of the men, while in tho centre
of the room Professor Crossley and his largo
class of acrobats aro tumbling, tossing, and
swinging in great style. It is a busy scene, and
the busiest man is Capt. Stinemetz, who Is kept
moving from ono group to tho other making
suggestions and encouraging tho boys. Capt.
Sam is ably assisted in his work by Lieut. Rich
ard Ryan. Tho C. A. C. boysaro a hustling
set, and tho idea uppermost in each man's mind
seems to be to do something to honor his club
Oolumbias' Fortnightly Exhibition.
Another ble crowd filled tho C. A. C. house
last night to witness tho entertainment given
fortnightly by tho organization. Mr. Bobby
Elder acted as master of ceremonies. Among
6omo of tho events wore:
Junior high jump Gregg won, 4 feet 10
inches; McElhono second.
Spring-board exorcise Dashiell won by a
clean leap of eight feet; Crossley second.
Elder, Brlckonstein, and Sewell also com
peted. Sparring A clever exhibition between Pro
fessor Ikey Simmons and Jack Ranier, which
created a furore. Simmons made a Bplondld
Trapeze A splendid performance by Sewell
Broadswords ProfcsBor Hointz and Lieut.
Wrestling Shaffirt and Harrison. A good
tussle without a fall. Given Harrison for doing
tho most work.
Half-mile run In heats, the final being won
by Tyler in 2:24. Elliott, Bolway, O'Leary, and
Sparring Dickinson and Dashiell. A piece
of work which was thoroughly enjoyed by tho
Smlthson, of tho P. A. C, will devote his time
to 6inglo-scull rowing the coming summer.
Perkins, of tho AnaloBtans, will make a very
ofllcient officer of the club. Ho is progressive
and wide awake.
Eddy "Walsh, of tho C. A. C, desires to give
up pitching and play in tho left-field. He finds
his good right arm not in the shape he would
llko and believes his pitching days aro over.
If tho base-ball men show up In sufficient
numbers to warrant tho outlay it 1b probablo
the C. A, C. will select another team to bo
known as the "Seconds." It is a good idea, and
will servo to develop tho players for places on
the first team.
Among those likely to bo elected governors
of tho Potomac Athletics at its next meeting is
Mr. James 0. Addisou, one of the oldest mem
bers and a live business man. He will make a
good officer and tho club should endeavor to
get live more like him.
Georgetown College will be represented this
summer by a strong team, and unless all signs
