A goodshoit-stop and one more outfielder
Dowd's return has worked well for the club,
lie Is a star.
Duulap is moving about, but he will not be
able to play ball this year.
Gerhardt, "Old Reliable Joe," is playing
second-base for the Albanys.
Dowd again injured his hand in Wednes
day's game. He certaiulj' Is unfortunate.
Beecher and Ilines somehow or other
manage to get in their usual errors. Strange
thing for fielders.
Foreman pitched his first bad game on
Wednesday last, but he did not give up
until tho whole gang behind him went "sky
rocketing." The work of removing a number of the
trees in tho left and centre field was com
menced last week, and a largo number were
The Nationals will have thefollowlng games
tho present week: To-day (Sunday) and Mon
day at Louisville, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, and Friday at Columbus, and Sat
urday at Cincinnati. They will also play in
Cincinnati next Sunday if tho municipal au
thorities will allow them.
Tho Nationals surprised themselves by
putting up a splendid game against tho St.
Louis on Tuesday, it requiring ten innings to
decide tho game. This event was too much
for our team, as on Wednesday they got back
lu "public form," and exhibited themselves as
MufTers from Mufforville. When will tho end
of tho string bo reached.
Alvord has joined the team, and from a let
ter received here from Manager Snyder it Is
learned that ho fills tho bill exactly, and covers
so much territory that every "bleeding
bleacher" will bo overjoyed to 6eo bis stylo.
Ho is a lively, go-ahead player, enthuses tho
others, and keeps things on the jump all the
time. Ho is a good pick-UD and one of the
most accurate throwers to first-base that over
filled tho position,
Cincinnati, Onio, May 30. The police
court in a jury trial found Manager Bancroft,
of the Cincinnati Association Club, not guilty
of a violation of tho statutes in attempt
ing to play tho game stopped by
the police last Sunday. The law
forbids playing games, but does not forbid an
attempt to play, and Bancroft says tho game
next Sunday will bo played through and will
take tho consequences.
The Nationals have signed a new fielder
named Lawreuce Patrick Murphy, who has
been playing with the Minneapolis and St.
Paul teams of tho Northwestern League. He
played in tho same team with Hoy and Wll
mot, and when thoy were secured by the
Washingtons two years ago they urged Mr.
Hewott to take him also. lie has
never played outside tho Western
League, and last year be bad an aver
age of .800 on batting an .901 in fielding.
Burns will now be relegated to the Western
Association, as he bos been dissatisfied ever
since ho came hero and did not play the ball
he was capable of. He is also a hard man to
keep in turn.
THE POTOMACS. VICTORIOUS.
Dofont tho W. I.. I. C. Team In n
, One of tho most interesting games played
hero this season took place yesterday between
tho W. L. I. Corps team and the Potomac
Athletics, tho latter earning a creditable vic
tory. It was a royal pitchers' battle between
Wlso nnd Kelly, tho former having the best of
It as rcgaids strike-outs, while Kelly outdid
himself in Holding assists. Tho catching of
Ilodgo and Hayes was magnificent. The
batting of Leach, Ilodgo, and Chapman was
good. The game was excellently umpired by
Mr. Burdette, of tho Duponts, aud there were
few exceptions to hl6 work. Many ladies
were present to witness tho contest. Score:

- The Columbia Team Did Not Go.
The Columbia Athletics did not go to Pitts
burg on Friday eveulug, as a telegram was re
ceived from the Alleghany Athletic Club, tell
ing them not to come, as the heavy rain had
Hooded their grounds and it was Btill ruining.
Tho C. A. C. boys, as might be expected, were
6adly disappointed over the failure of what
promised to be such u splendid tour.
Jimmy Green, of the Columbias, keeps up
his good Bteady work.
Wells, of the C. A. C, will play centre-field
when not in as catcher.
Myers, of tho Y. M. C. A., is the best chaser
after short-hit files in this vicinity.
The Potomacs have three postponed games
to play off on tho District League.
White, of tho Light Infantry, is a great
short-stop, a clean hitter, and a sprinter to
Warner Gordon, of the P. A. C, plaj'B a
clever game at third, while his batting is
Tommy Evers, of the W. L. I. Corps, does
not say much, but he play's winning ball all
the time, just the same.
Fitzmorris, Leach, .;Homlller, Sprigman,
Fuller, Burke, and Walsh, of the C. A, C, are
making records as .pitchers.
Tho Y. M. C. A. boys suffered considerably
by the heavy rains of last week, as it mired up
their new grounds in bad shape.
i Leach, of tho W. L. I. who guards the
third-base so well, is a brother of Eddy
jeacn, me pit-cueM ui3t3A'jiji
Townsend, of tho Y. M. C. A., is working
hard to advance his organization. Ho is tho
only player who uses eye-glasses.
Bolway has been changed from short-stop to
the field. A very unwise move, as ho is too
clever an infielder to bo thus shifted.
Boucher, of the Georgetowns, will play with
the Y. M. C. A. during the rest of the season.
He will strengthen the team considerably.
Hiram Wright, lately of the Syracuse Stars,
according to the lJost, will not play with the
Potomacs, but is a regular fixture on tho
Jesse Ramsburg is alternating with Johnson
as catcher for the Y. M. C. A. He is a better
foot-baller, and with Lewis will make up a
strong team this fall.
Shiboleth, of the Infantry, is regarded by
his friends as the best first-baseman in the
District, llo is a hard worker and plays
ball to win all the time.
Shoemaker, the best all-around general
player of the Georgetowns, has joined the
Potomacs, and will alternate in the pitcher's
box. He is a good one.
Chapman, of the Potomacs, led tho Ohio
University in batting, no hasn't tho prettiest
motion in tho world, but he gets his wagon
tonguo onto the ball very often.
Tho fight for tho A. A. U. championship of
thl6 section between the Columbia Athletics
and Washington Light Infantry promises to
eclipse tho professional race.
llebstock, of tho Potomacs, Is a player of
every position on tho team, as ho can pitch
well and catch a first-class game, while his
fielding and batting aro excellent.
When tho District League championship
series ends O'Hagan and Thornburgh, tho bat
tery of tho Duponts, will play with tho W. L.
I. Corps in tho A. A. U. series of games.
During tho game yesterday Kelly and
Hauptmun was presented with magnificent
iloral offerings from their West End friends.
Both acknowledged tho gifts by striking out.
Tho Potomacs and Columbias tried twice
last week to play, but rain interfered iu both
instances, much to tho regret of both sides,
who were eager to annihilate each other.
Connors, the splendid second-baseman of
the Potomacs, who was injured in tho Y. M.
C. A. game, fell from his bicycle recently and
injured his wounded leg again. It will be
Beveral weeks before he can play.
There is much rivalry In the several clubs
over the securing of good players, and now
that tuition days are drawing to a close there
is a ruBh for the players who have been with
the team representing Georgetown University.
Not to be outdone by tho other amateur
clubs in the matter of good material, tho Po
tomac Athletics have secured Winkleman to
play tho remainder of tho season with them
and alternate with Kebstock, Kelly, and
Shoemaker In the pitcher's box.
The Spalding League ball used by tho
Amateur League Is not filling tho bill, as the
balls rip and tear after a few hard raps. The
clubs cannot afford to pay $15 a dozen aud
have so many of them go to ruin on them.
Mr. Spalding 6hould look after this.

Gettysburg, Pa., May 39. The George
town University team defeated the Gettys
burg team here to-day in a spirited and well
played contest, in which the Georgetown Uni
versity showed off best. Their battery,
Winkleman and Rackey, did great work.
Tho score was G to 8.
Littlo Hodge, the catcher of the Potomac
Athletics, caught one of the finest games yes
terday over seen on a ball field. It must be
remembered that this plucky player only re
cently had a bad accident happen to his left
hand, hence his work yesterday was phenome
nal. There is considerable ill-feeling existing be
tween the Columbia Athletics and tho Wash
ington Light Infantry over the services of
Eddy Leach, tho pitcher. It Is alleged that
he pledged himself to play with tho V. L. I.
Corps, and then turned around and joined the
C. A. C. Tho Infantry claims that when a
player has agreed to play with one club, a
member of tho League, the other clubs should
leave him alone, just as the professionals do.

Y. M. C. A., of this city, aud the Y. M. C. A.,
of Baltimore, was won by the former by a
score of 8 to 3. The gamo was witnessed by
about fifteen hundred people, and the play
ing of tho home team was much admired,
Holbrook, tho pitch'er, doing yeoman's ser
vice, as only three hits were made off of hiin.
O'Hagan, of the Duponts, and Walsh and
Fuller, of tho C. A. C.'s, played with the Y.

Tho athletic and musical entertainment that
tho joint regatta committee is arranging for
June 10 at tho Academy of Mu6ic promises to
be one of tho finest affairs over given In this
city. Tho various clubs will each furnish a
quota of members, who are expected to make

exhibition. It will afford the lady friends of
the club an excellent opportunity to see ath
leticB at Its best, while the musical part will
be rendered by tho leading talent of the city.
Tho Columbias will furnish sparrers, vaultors,
bar perrormers, and high jumpers. Tho Po
tomacs will furnish sparrers, wrestlers, and
fencers. Tho Y. M. C. A. will furnish a
coterie of athletes that promiso to give one of
tho best exhibitions ever seen hereabouts, in

Columbia's Brawny Oarsmen.
Tho prospects for first-class crows lu the
ColumblaB is flattering, and Capt. Gibson is
happy. He has not the largo field of juniors
of two years ago, but he has more first-class
seniors who are able to handle sweeps In the
clock-like style that Courtney drills into his
pupils. Throe of the men of tho eight of last
season will be out this year, namely Javnus,
Kenyon, and Crist, all excellent men, but in
their places have been enrolled Dyer and El
