ball News and Gossip.
Tho Nationals returned to tho city yester
day, and near 'y 2,000 peoplo crowded through
tho turnstiles to sco them piny. Tho team
kept up their had work and gave a eomowhat
tonic exhibition of weakness at tho hat and
miserable base-running. Griflln mado his re
appearance and showed tint ho was tho star
player of the team. Carsoy wns In to pitch
and pitched well up to tho olghth Inning, whon
tho Athletics by placing a lot of chanco hits
secured five runs. The came opened auspi
ciously for the Nationals, as Dowd reached
first on Hallman's mull of his high lly, a clean
steal to second, and homo on Griflln's clean
hit to centre field. Sutcliffe also hit safely,
but McGuiro and McCauley wore retired,
leaving two men on bases. Tho Athletics
evened up affairs in the second, as after two
men were out Corcoran hit for a base, wont (to
third on wild pitch, and scored on Sutcllffc's
' In tho third Lawrence Patrick Murphy hit
a pretty one to left, Dowd sacrificed him
to second, and then he camo homo on Griflln's
hit. Sutcliffe reached first, Griffin going to
third and Sutcllffo went to second, but again
McGuIre and McCauloy failed to score them,
McGuirc striking out and McCauloy being
thrown out at first. In tho seventh tho Na
tionals had three men on bases, but owing to
the deception of Brother Gus' curves they
could not advance them abase. Tho Na
tionals scored their last run In the
eighth. McCauloy and Hatfield secured
bases on balls after two hands were out,
and on Corcoran's wild throw of
Alvord's grounder McCauley scored. In tho
eighth came tho Waterloo, as Carsey
started out by presenting Woods and Mc
Tammany with bases on balls. Larkin and
Milllgan followed with hits, scoring the first
two. Corcoran hit a savage one at Carsey,
which caromed off his leg and allowed Larkin
to score. Mulvey then hit safely, scoring
Hallman, and to add to the misery Corcoran
scored on Sutcliffe. This closed tho agony, as
in the ninth the Nationals failed to connect,
and another defeat is added to their long
list. The score in full is as follows:

by a red-hot batted ball hitting him on the
ankle. Kelly essayed to pitch, but outside of
furnishing a great deal of fun for the audl--ence,
it cannot be said that he is a success as
a twlrler. Dwyer finished the game after the

Von Der Alio Says Nay.
St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 15. King Kelly and
the Cincinnati aggregation reached the city
-this morning and played tho first game of tho
last series with the Browns this afternoon.
.President Von Der Abe was seen by an Asso
ciated Press reporter at noon, and whon ques
tioned as to the report that the Cincinnati
Club would be transferred to Milwaukee, tho
'Boss President said: "Not a bit of it: no, sir;
the Cincinnati Club will stay just where it is.
This is official." As President Von Der Abo
holds a controling interest in the Porkopolls
Club, it is very likely that his word will go.
President II. E. Gillette, of tho Milwaukee
Club, arrived in St. Louis this morning.
President Von Der Ahe and Mr. Gillette had
a consultation, regarding the franchise which
the latter Jb trying to secure in tho American
Association, Mr. Von Der Abe assured the
Milwaukee magnate that his city would be
represented in the Association, taking Louis
ville's place, as that club Is for sale. Mr. Gil-
lotto will know poslttvcly about tho Louisville
matter this ovening or to-morrow morning.
Notwithstanding what tho great "Boss"
President says, as quoted in tlio abovo dis
patch, tho Impression is strong hero that tho
Cincinnati Club Is doomed. In fact, a tele
gram was rocclvcd hero yesterday stating on
what tonns Marr and Mains would come here

The Omaha Club has Issued a manifesto that
Is causing considerable uneasiness among tho
magnates of tho Leaguo, especially as tho
manifesto bears the Indorsement of Mr. L. C.
Krauthoff, president of tho Western Associa
tion, and a member of tho national board of
control. The manifesto is an expulsion of
tho following playors who lately left the
Omaha ranks to seek tholr fortunes else
whore: E. W. Sutcliffe, A. McCauley, J. B.
Donnelly, L. G. Twltcholl, T. C. Griffin, W.
H. Clark, and H. Elteljorg. It will be ob
served that tho contingent that joined tho
Nationals of this city is named, excepting
Shannon, but these and the others do not
cause half of tho gossip that the name of Hal
ligan does. Ho joined the Leaguo team of
Cincinnati, and that club has persistently re
fused to surrender him, and as the Omalias
are members of the national agreement and
Air. Krauthoff is a member of tho board of
control, it will bo perceived what a pickle the
clubs of tho national agreement arc In. Man
ager Shannon, of the Nationals, was not ex
pelled with the rest as he had a special ar
rangement. The Clncinnatis have walked tho plank aud
their place is to be filled by the Milwaukees.
It will be a relief to'.tho American Association,
as the Cincinnatis have been a dead weight
on the other teams.
Ou Monday tho Nationals will play tho
Athletics at National Park. This will bo tho
last gamo at home for some time. On Thurs
day, Friday, and Saturday the Nationals play
Maybe old Cy. Sutcliffe isn't hitting the
ball In great shapo just now. If he continues
ho will make himself tho best hitter of tho
Beechcr, formerly of the Nationals and
afterward of tho Athletics, has been signed by
tho Philadelphia League team.
Manager and Captain Shannon's absence Is
a severe drawback. He is a good team
worker and a good general.
Tho Nationals have played good ball but tho
other teams have played better. We are out
classed. Eiteljorg has not proven as successful as his
friends expected him to be with tho Nationals.
Roach, of the Post, Is tho best man that
journal ever had to do its baseball work.
Tail endcrs. It sounds very natural.
It seems to please the fancies of our peoplo
to be back at tho old mooring.
McCawley connects with the ball in a good
Glvo Freeman a show. Ho Is a pitcher.
National Park looks very pretty.
Caph May Point, N. J., Aug. 15. Presi
dent Harrison, accompanied by Mrs. Dlm
mlck, visited the grounds of the Cape May
Athletic Association this afternoon and wit
nessed a gamo of baseball between the Gor
hams, a team composed of colored profes
sional playors, and the Cape May nine, which
was won by tho former by a score of 5 to
nothing. The President appeared much in
terested in tho game and applauded all tho
The Washington Light Infantry had a splen
did team early in the season and It was thought
that they would give the Columbias a lively
fight for the A, A. U. honors. Unfortunately
there was little concerted action on tho part of
the team, and at important games some of tho
best players absented themselves. It is to be
hoped that next season John neydon will run
tho team, as his work last year was the causa
of tho club's success.
Tho Olympics of West Washington have
not lo6t a gamo this season and they have met
some of the best teams In this vicinity. Thoy
aro a sprightly set of youngsters and ero tho
season closes would llko to get in a series with
tho Columbia Athletics. The Columbias
should accommodate them as tho contests
would bo excellent practice affairs for tho A.
A, U. meeting.
Hiram Wright of tho Columbia AthleticB,
who played professionally with the Washing
ton and Troy teams, has had his disabilities
romoved by tho Amateur Athletic Union and
ho is now a full-fledged amateur. Ho will bo
a great help to tho club in the championship
Tho Boston Athlotic team will visit hero
shortly to play tho Columbia Athletics a game.
These Boston boys aro putting up a great
gamo of ball and aro sweeping things before
them in the North.
The amateur season has demonstrated one
thing very forcibly. That is that this city has
plenty of first-class ability to fill up gaps In
tho professional teams.
Maybe "Kid" Fitzmorris of tho C. A. C.
isn't hitting the ball in great shape. He Is a
Mr, Betts, who has officiated as umpiro in
tho amateur aeries, did his work well and ac
ceptably, Tho Columbias have not lost a game In tho

Held The Comploto Entries.
Already there aro a largo numborof bronzed
and brawny young mon In tho city, gathered
horo from all parts of tho country to
participate In tho great national rogatta
of Tuesday and Wednesday. To-day and
to-morrow tho rush of visitors will bo at its
height, and It Is already apparent tho rogatta
will bo tho greatest ono over hold by tho
Association. It Is expected to eclipse tho ono
hold In 1876 at tho Centennial in Philadelphia.
Every detail of preparation has been attended
to by tho joint commtttco consisting of Messrs.
Alex. Grant, Samuel W. Stlnomotz, and W.
Howatd, oftho C. A. C; Oscar P. Schmidt,
W . M. Ollley, and Claudo It. Zappono. of tho
P. A. C, and Samuel Maddox, W, A.
McKlnnoy, aud R. E. Pairo. of tho Analostan
Boat Club. All that remains to crown tholr
efforts with success Is fair weathor and clear
water for tho contestants. On Tuosday morn
ing tho local committco will turn over tho
affair to tho regatta committco of tho National
Association of Amateur Oarsmen, consisting
of Mr. C. G. Potcrson, of Now York; Charles
Catlln, of Chicago; M. A. Mullin, ot Nowark,
N. J.; Harry McMillan, of Philadelphia, and
W. Howard Gibson, of this city. It is ex
pected that Mr. C. G. Peterson will act as
reforee. Tho course has been laid off and Is
perfect In every respect as to lines, finishes,
and starts, and thero Is no advantago to bo
galnid by any of tho crow In any position.
The pollco boat Joo Blackburn, Harbor
Master Sutton In charge, will bo on hand to
keop the courso clear from small boats, and
keep out of tho courso tho steamers that will
bo al'owed to Heat tho finish.
Among tho arrivals yesterday wero tho fol
lowing: Varuna Club, of Brooklyn, Quill and
Belyer in double sculls and Frcelhln a single
scull; Vesper Club, of Philadelphia, McGowan
and Van Ullch In double eculU and Hcdley In
single scull; Atalantas, of New York, Lau
Brouthcrs In pair oared, Pawton In single
scull; Acquacknock Club, of Passaic, N. "J.,
Berry In single scull; Institute Club", 0 Now
ark, Carney In single scull; Albany Rowing
Club, Monohau and Mulcahy In double sculls,
Snyder in single scull. Tho arrivals to-day
will bo as follows: Arlington Club, of Massa
chusetts, a junior four; Arlels, of Baltimore,
a junior four; New York Athletics, an eight,
two pair oared, and a single; Crescents, of
Boston, two single sculls; Ravenswood, of
Long Island, a doublo scull; Falrmounts, of
Philadelphia, an eight and a single four.
Tho oarsmen already in the city can bo easily
distinguished as they sport a great quantity of
silken badges of almost every hue, while
others who have been fortunate in the affairs
of the oar are decked with more medals than
a Freuch field marshal on dress parade.
Tho scene on tho river yesterday afternoon
was a lively one. Standing on tho deck of
ono of tho Trinidad sci ooners at Easby's
Point an excellent view i-ould bo had of tho
rowers as thoy sped by uiuier the skillful oyo
of their professional t oaches. Tho famous
Atalanta eight attracted most attention, as
they have been many times winners in big
races, and the members of the crew sport
enough medals on their coats to set up a
junk shop. Thoy pull in beautiful shape,
their blade work being marvelously correct.
It is a sweeping stroke with something llke
the Bob Cook finish, only faster. The Nep
tune junior four, in their new shell which
Mike Davis built for them, attracted much
attention. Their boat is a beauty. Plais
ted says it is twenty seconds faster than
any paper craft in tho water. Tho
Dempsey brothers in a pair wero having a
brush with Smlthson, of tho Potomacs, while
right behind them camo Hlggins, the Wor
cester sculler, accomDanled by his trainer Ten
Eyck. Quietly resting on his sculls over
against tho barks was Hawkins, tho Man
hattan Athletic man intently watching the
style of Hlggins. Then comes tho Columbia
senior four down the middle of the stream,
passing In review as it were, before Courtney,
who is over in the higb grass watching them
closely. They are rowing in a stylo to please
and thoy will bo well up with tho leaders.
Their junior eight is giving them a race and
tho way tho two crows are hitting It up makes
It pleasant to look at. Tho Potomac juniors
were also out and appeared to bo getting
some speed out of their craft. The members ol
tho club do not expect much out of them and
will besatisfled If tho crow make a fairly good
showing. The Potomac eight is running
along with them to keep tho crow up to its
work and make them row properly. Then
besides these there wero Pauton, of tho
Atalantas, in his single, Lau Brothers of, tho
same club in pair oared, Buerty, of tho
Neptunes, In his single and many others. Tho
river was dotted with pleasure crafts of ovory
description and the rowing of tho various
contestants was carefully noted and laid
away for future reference.
The first day will bo devoted to tho prelimi
nary trials, though It Is probable tho junior
fours may bo rowed that day. Tho comploto

It will be seen that tho list ot eutrics Is tho
very pick of tho amateur ranks and tho spec
tators will doubtless witness some of tho
rarest sport ever seen in this country. Un
fortuuntely tho local commltteeo failed to
erect a grand stand at tho fiulsh so that those
who are not going on steamers will havoto lo
cate on Lasty's Point or take up a position on
tho newly-reclaimed Huts. These aro excel
lent points to f,co the races as right thero the
final strucgles wjll bo made In every race.
On Monday at 10 o'clock the executive com
mittce of the N. A. A. O. will meet at Wil
lanl's Hotel to transact regular business and
at 3 o'clock tho drawing of heats will take
place. On Wednesday night the prizes will
be distributed at Wlllard's Hall.
Athletic and KowinK Notes.
Secretary Gibson, of the N. A. A. O. re
ceived a telegram from tho Toronto Rowing
Club, asking the privilege of entering a junior
four In tho regatta. This could not bo done
under tho rules unless all tho clubs agreed,
and Secretary. Gibson Is now awaiting
responses from the other entries. Of courso
tho Potomac Club would not be in a position
to object, as being a home club it is their de
sire to see as many entries as possible, but all
the same tho Canadians had plenty of ttmo to
make up their mind and not wait until this late
The Donohue Brothers who will row
double on Tuesday next, have been training
for several months in Toronto with Hanlan
and O'Connor, and the new pair aro very
speedy. Thoy will represent tho Manhattan
Athletic Club, and as skaters thoy have a
world-wide reputation. Joo Donohue, who
pulls bow, has defeated the fastest skaters
in America and Europe, and last winter won
tho world's championship in Holland. They
aro at the Potomac.
Tho junior crow of tho Potomac Athletics,
ituiuu was guuen logetner on such short no
tice, suffered a reverse last week, for on
Wednesday Mr. A. H. Mills, who was stroking
tho crow so nicely, was taken sick and had to
rotiro. His place has been filled by Mr. U. S. '
Roulette. Though somewhat handicapped by
lack of tralulng, tho crew hopes to make a
good showing. If they finish two or three
their friends will bo satisfied.
Thero Is no junior elght-oared race at Staten
Island on Labor Day and hence tho crew of
tho Columbia Athletics who havo been train
ing all summer for tho event, aro to be sent to
Boston, Mass., on that day whero thero will
bo a junior eight race. It is a good crow,
though the taking out of Welsh and Staylor
somewhat weakened its ability. Solden and
Perry, however, aro getting down to good
Kern's, the patenteo of tho now stylo row
locks and braces as well as a new system of
In-door training for eight oared shells, had
ono of the latter contrivances placed In the
gymnasium ot tho Columbia Athletic house.
Last night nearly all tho visiting oarsmen
went there to see an exhibition by tho famous
Atalanta crew on tho machines and it was
Tho first visitors to arrive last week wero
tho Dempsey Brothers of tho Now York Ath
letics, and Hlggins, tho senior Bcullor from
Worcester, Mass. Tho first named obtained
quarters at tho Columbias and tho other at tho
AnalOBtan House. James Ton Eyck, tho fast
professional 6culler, accompanied Hlggins as
Tho celebrated Atalanta eight Is stopping
at the Columbia Athletic house. Tho Fair
mounts will bo at the Potomacs, while tho Now
York Athlotlcs will find quarters at tho
Analostans. Hawkins and tbo Manhattan
Athletic people will make tho Potomac
Athletic house their headquarters.
Enterprising firms along tho shore aro erect
ing grand stands, tho courso is being flagged
off, tho club-houtes aro being decorated in
bunting and tho whole front of tho river is
taking on a gala appearance.
Among the now arrivals is Tim Donoghue,
the great oar-makorof Nowburgh, N. Y., and
father of those world-renowed champion
skaters, tbo Do noghuo brothers.
