COULDN'T HIT ESPER.
Clevelands Beaten In the Fourth
Temple Cup Game.
Baltimore put Esper in against the Cleve
lands yesterday at Baltimore and won.
Esper has always been invincible against
the Clevelands. When he was with Wash
ington the Spiders couldn't touch him. It
has been a cause of wonder that the Bal
timores didn't play him at Cleveland. Only
five hits were secured off him Yesterday.
Both teams played good ball, but the Orioles
batted Cuppy often and won by 5 to 0.
The playing seems to 'ndicate that the
home team will make it three straight, and
that the seventh game of the Temple Cup
series will have to be played. More than
10,000 people saw the battle, and the en
thuslaim was unbounded, so much so. in
fact, that some of the rougher element for
got themselves and offered some in-lignities
to the visitors. Paper balls, peanuts, one
or two eggs and finally a rock were thrown
at them as they left their hotel for the
grounds, and after reaching there they
were hissed by a smill part of the crowd.
but this was frowned upon by the majority
and there were no further attempts at in
suit during the game. .
The run-getting began in the second, when
Brodie got home on Carey's rattling two
bagger to center, after ha'ving reached first
on a force hit and qecand on Gleasor.'s sac
rifice. Two more were made in the third,
McGraw and Keeler coming home on a hunt
by McGraw, another by Keeler, a single by
Jennings, a hit by Esper and'a long fly by
Brodie. This performance Aas --luplicated
in the seventh, Keelel- going to first on balls
after two men were out. to third on Jen
nings' single and home on Kelly's single to
left, which also brougnt Jennings aertes the
plate. The visitors, as a rule, went out in
one, two, three order, and at no time did
they seem dangerous. The scnre:

association come to be so heavily in debt
at that time, In order that the public may
know what are the legitimate receipts and
expenses of a Y. M. C. Association, we ap
pend, in detail, the financial statement of
the year 18-'95:
Membership, $4,950.60; contributions, jubi
lee fund, $1,187.54; contributions. Post fund,
$1,450.68; contributions, current expenses,
32,150.70; Corcoran Fire Insurance on fur
niture in old buildirg, $1,000; rent, $488.10;
Association Monthly, $502.75; loan. $1,250;
miscellaneous, $137.47. Total, 113,216.74.
Salary to officers, $4,210; salary to jani
tors, $630; salary to ed. teachers, $579.96;
postage, 5346.93; printing account (general).
*815.96; printing monthly, $640.58; repairs,
$W-2.22; telephone, $100; park rent, $115;
gas, $474.38; taxes, $75; rent of rooms, $100;
electric likhting, 304.91; hymn books, $54;
expenses week of prayer, $114; state work,
$50; electric light, $140.45; notes, $2,805;
Interest, $2.5.51; coal,232.55; miscellaneous,
$1.041.64. Total, $13,568.00.
From this It will be seen that the young
men of the association pay about 60 per
cent of the expenses of the association. Of
the otter 40 per cent of expenses about 10
to 20 per cent is contributed by observing,
and broadminded citizens whose names are
recorded on the books of the association;
citizens who In some way become familiar
with some good work of the association
and know that it fills a need In the com
munity which no other organization can
fill, and. wish to recognize this in a sub
stantial and appreciative manner. For In
stance, the late Justice Strong never failed
to come into the association each year, and,
after saying a good word, leave sometimes
$50, but usually $100, toward our annual ex
penses. Our secretary, Mr. Pugh, could
spend hours in telling of similar Instances.
The yearly deficiency of the association,
sometimes 20 or 25 per cent, and rarely ever
as low as 10 per cent, must therefore be
carried along as a doating Indebtedness,
when It cannot otherwise be taken care of.
It Is a fact ti at association statistics show
that in very few, If any, associations are
the receipts from the membership so large
a percentage of the expense of running the
association as In the Y. K. C. A. of the
District of Columbia. In view of this, the
finance committee feel that they are en
titled to go to the public-spirited citizens of
the District of ColumbIa and ask for $200,
000 for a new building, and the buildng
committee are now considering plans to
present to the association and the citizens

ed attention to the fact that the number of
applicants had decreased, notwithstanding
the very hard times, and expressed the be
lief that the work of the society was re
sulting in a permanent decrease of the
need for charity, owing to the work of the
organization in placibg applicants for alms
on a basis of self-help. He thanked the
members of the ladies' Sewing Society,
who last winter, under the direction of Miss
Bertha Baar, rendered Valuable aid. The
sum of $550 was received from the District

Chairman Woodward's Report or
the Society's Financial Condition.
NEW OFFICERS ELECTE]
The annual meeting of the Y. M. C. A. for
the transaction of business and the electior
of officers was held last evening at the
present quarters of the association, in the
Lenman building. The reports showed that
the association is in a satisfactory condi
tion, notwithstanding the loss it incurred
in the burning of its building during the
sum'er. All the talk was of the most
hopeful character, and constant reference
was made to the urgent need of a new and
larger building.. The belief was expressed
by' several of the members that such a
home would be secured in the near future
through the appreciation and generosity of
the people of Washington, and that in such
an event the burning of the old building on
New York avenue would prove to be a
blessing in disguise.
The president of the association, Mr.- L.
Cabell Williamson, occupied the chair at
the meeting, and Mr. J. H. Lichliter, the
recording secretary, was also present. The
principal business of the evening was the
reading of .the report of the financial com
mittee and the election of officers. The
latter resulted in only one change in the
list of officers. Judge Anson S. Taylor was
elected to succeed Mr. F. W. Vaughn, who
was one of the oldest members of the board
of directors, but was compelled to decline
re-election on account of ill health. The
meeting passed a resolution expressing the
association's gratitude to Mr. Vaughn for
his long and devoted service. A similar
resolution was adopted in the case of the
general secretary, Mr. James E. Pugh, who
is seriously ill' from an attack of typhoid
Report of Religious Work.
The meeting was opened with a religious
service, after which a long list of appli
cants for membership was favorably pass
ed upon. J. S. Barker. chairman of the
commfaittee on religious work, reported for
that committee, showing that notwith
standing the destruction of the building,
there had been but the most trivial inter
ruption in the services. The religious work
of the rasociation, which is. of course, the
most important work, has been done in a
thorough and systematic manner, and it is
reasonable to believe, has accomplished a
great deal of good. During the year past
an average of 2(X) young men have been
reached a week through the agency of the
religious services. The committee express
ed its gratitude to the officers and members
of the Foundry V. E. Church, which was
placed at their disposal for its Sunday af
terioon services and on other occasions.
Yet the falling off in attendance, which had
been noticed at these meetings, proved con
clusively the need of a new building, for
it is evident that young men are more
ready to attend in a building that is solely
for the use of the Y. M. C. A.
In the Educational Field.
Chabman W. C. Henry of the committee
on educatiwn said that the association has
every reason to be proud of the work it
has accomplished in this field. When the
year book is published it will show that
the Washington association is in the front
rank as an educational institution. During
the year 355 individual members of the as
sociation have taken advantage of the op
portunities placed at their disposal. and
from this it is easy to see how much has
been dote in the way of preparing the
young men of Washington for a successful
carcer in life. Reference was made at the
recent conventior of Y. M. C. A.'s at Spring
field ard the educational exhibit held on
that occasion. There were sixty-six ex
hibits in forty-four different studies, and
the Washington association carried off four
first awards, a very creditable reccrd. when
one considers the equipment that was avail
able in the old building. Great credit was
due to Secretary Pugh for his efforts and
untiring labors in the interests of the edu
catic-nal branch. Religious work has gone
hand in hand with the educational work,
and teachers and students alike have kept
uppermost in mind the fact that the asso
ciation is, first of all, a Christian asso
Some Financial Statements.
Mr. Wcodruff, chairman cf the committee
on rocms, reported what had been done in
-the way of securing rooms and fitting them
up after the big fire. The sum of $1,255.2
had been spent on the rooms, and besides
this generous donations had been received
from a number of friends, which had been
foLnd of great service in making their
temporary quarters homelike. Mr. Swart
iout spoke of the gospel work that has
been done at the jail by members of the
asrociation during the year, and Mr. W. B.
Matthews spoke of the White Cross Army,
its purposes and growth.
,Mr. J. C. Pratt, the treasurer of the as
scciation, presented' a brief resume of his
arnual report, which was embodied in
greater detali in the report of the commit
tee on finance. Yesterday Mr. John loy
Edson was asked to make a thorough ex
amination of the books of the association
to see if he could make any suggestions
for improvement. A letter was read from
him last evening, in which he said that he
had gone over the books carefully, and had
found them correct and the system busi
ness-like. In concluding his letter Mr. Ed
"'I am convinced, from what I have learn
ed, that the Young Men's Christian Asso
ciraticn is accomnplishing a vast amount of
good at a minimum expense, and feel sure
that any work which the association may
undertake in the future, if conducted in the
same thorough, practical manner, cannot
but be productive of still greater good to
the mental and moral welfare of the young~
men of Washington."~
The utmost interest attached to the re
port of the committee on finance, as show
ineg just what the condition of the associa
tlon is now, several months after the lire.
The report was read by the chairman ofI
the committee, Mr. S. W. Woodward, who
has devoted a great deal of time and laboi
to the association, and has used his bus
irness skill and ability again and again to
further its interests.
