Tho manager of the National ' Club and
Directors Bennett and Scaulon on Friday had
an Interview with tho members of tlio team
and in a straightforward manner laid tho law
down to tho men. They wore given to under
stand that tho directors were not satisfied at
all with their playing and that Unless thoy did
hotter sovcral of them would bo relegated to
tho players' bench without pay. Manager
Snyder waB very emphatic and told Bccchcr
that unless bo braced up and played bis game
bo would bo tho one to first fcol the disci
pline. Burns was Informed that Kansas City
would not get him at present. This
startled Burns, for ho did not know tho
management waB oato bis dickers with
tbo Kansas City Club. It was deemed best to
leavo him homo on this trip, and it Is more
than likely he will bo released before tbo club
returns. Miller was also left behind in order
to build up and get Ills twirling arm in shape.
Ho is a good man, but tho grip took.nll tho
starch out of blm. Bakcly " was released on
probation, but tbo manager on Friday rein
stated him, ho agreeing to an Iron-clad reso
lution to 6in no more. Tbero will bo several
familiar faces missing ero tho team returns,
and among them will In all probability bo Fop
Smith. Tho directors are determined to havo
a good team, even if they have to rid them
selves of every man on tho present one.

of tho hardest-fought struggles for supremacy
that the two teams havo over had. When de
feat seemed Inevitable for Yalo tho Princeton
men became rattled, and what should have
been a score of 1 to 0 In favor of Princeton
was quickly transformed U'to a score of 4 to 1
in favor of Yalo.

A rest now until Juno 11.
Ono Is a big crowd for such a team.
The club plays at Louisville to-day.
Will they win ono game while away ?
Big Jim Davis waB mustered Into service
Hlnes has won moro games by his batting
than all the rest together, ,
Dowd, the star player, will resume bis old
place in to-day's game at Loulsvlllo.
Manager Snyder has our sympathy for the
way his players are showing up.
The Columbus aro tho toughest and dirtiest
ball players ever seen in this city.
Quarles, the Virginian, showed rare judg
ment for a beginner. Ho won his game.
Charley Snydor hasn't forgotteu how to
play. His playing on Thursday last was of
tho star order.
Charley Jones, tho umpire, was unfortunate
to incur tho bleachers' auger. Ho Is a good
umpiro just tho same.
Big Jim Davis is playing a magnificent gamo
at third, and Is also using judgment in hitting.
While in this mood he should bo kept at work.
There Isn't as much team work about the
Nationals as tho 'Llttlo Goats," of "Goose
Level," of this city, possess. In fact, the
"Little Goats" could give them pointers and
havo plenty to spare. Tbo work of tho club
during tbo wook was tbo worst that any pro
fessional club over gave In this city, and it Is
remarkable how well tbo attendance kept up
in spite of the exhibitions.
Tho team In tho first gamo will be Bakeloy,
p.; Maguirc, c; McQuory, lb.; Dowd, 6b.;
Alvord, 3b.: Ilatflold, b.b.; Bcechcr, l.f.;
nines, c.f.; Davis, r.f.
"Babe" Trott is laughing away down in his
' shoes over tho deplorable plight of tho Na
tionals. They certainly have shown no Im
provement In their playing.
Kuehne, who played hero last week, wasn't
good enough for tho Nationals; but did you
notice tho groat gamo ho put up? It Is to bo
wished the homo team had something like
The game scheduled for yesterday was post
poned by mutual consent until Juno 7, as tho
club was anxious to reach St. Louis in time to
take a rest after tho long railroad jburnoy,
and bo roady for tho game to-day.
Dowd, tbo ono bright star of tho team, was
badly injured last week while prafctliiing. Ho
was stopping a hard grounder whim it, caught
his right hand off eldo and split.lt wide, open.
He will not play for at leaBt twp.wccks, and
his absence takes away one of the club's surest
props. , ,
Alvord, of tho Cleveland Lpaguo'tdam, has
signed to play with tho 'NjUtoinate, ;dnd will
join tho team at Louisville." llo Is a great
fielder and uses his stick to advantage. Judg
ing from tho way Jim- Davis Is playing It
would bo a good plan to play him at. second or
in tho field in place of Smith or Beecher.
The Nationals left last night via the Balti
more and Ohio for St. Louis, where on Mon
day they open up against St. Louis in the first
of their Western serlcB. The following players
wore taken on the trip: Pitchers, Carsey, Mil
ler, Foreman, and Quarles; catchers, Lohman
and McGuIre, and McQuory, Smith, Hatfield,
Beecher, Hlnes, and Burns. They will play
In St. Louis on Monday, Tuesday, Wednes
day, and Thursday, and Friday and Saturday
In Louisville, playing two games on Satur
The National Club before it returns to this
city in June will probably be minus some
of Its famllar faces, among whom will bo
Smith, Beecher, Burns, and probably ono or
two others. Manager Snyder is determined to
secure a team, no matter what tho cost will
bo. Alvord has bean secured. Gilks is about
as good as signed, whilo several players from
tho Northwestern League are being, negotiated
with. Tho batteries, too, are to bo looked
after and some of them will be changed. Tho
directors realize that this city is one of tho best
paying places in America, and tho poor show
ing of the team has humiliated them beyond
measure. No favoritism will bo shown and
the pruning knife Is now being sharpened.

One of the finest games played here this
season occurred on Tuesday between tho
Georgetown College and Potomac Athletics.
It took placo on tho campus of tho college
aud was witnessed by several huudred specta
tors. The Qeorgetowns won by a score of 0
to 3, five of which they made in the first
Inning on errors, and so cleverly did tho
Potomacs work that they were only able to
mako one more during tho game. The bat
tery work of Winkleman and Rackoy and
Kelly and Bishop was first class, whilo tho
contest was devoid of sq'zabbles.
