STARTED LIKE WINNERS.
The Orioles Took the First Temple
The Baltimore Sun says of yesterday's
game in that city between the Clevelands
and Baltimores for the Temple cup:
Truly, the Orioles have started out like
cup winners. For the last two seasons big
Cyrus Young has been a terror to the
Orioles, and the games they have won
from him have been few and far between.
He won every game he pitched in last
year's c-:p series and every game this year
except one, and that was because he was
being overworked and had but one day's
rest between games.
But the champions went at him 'yester
day in an entirely different spirit from
that which they usually display before
hbm. They knew that in order to win the
cup they would have to beat the mighty
Cyrus somehow, and they went at him
with a vengeance. The score of 7 to 1 in
the home club's favor shows what success
On the other band, Hoffer. "Wizard"
Hoffer, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, proved
himself a veritable "wizard" of the first
It was a great game-a game worthy of
the two great clubs that played It. Despite
a few mishaps, caused largely by nervous
eagerness to hurry the plays, the contest
was sharp, fast, brilliant to a degree, and
it kept the crowd keyed up to the highest
enthusiasm all the time. It was an ideal
day for base ball, only a trifle, perhaps, too
cool. The crowd was smaller than had
been expected, but it paid as well as a
crowd twice its size, for the price of ad
mission had been doubled. It numbered
3,!95 as it sas. On the housetops over
looking the ground the prices doubtless re
ma!ned the same.
For once the Clevelands seemed unlucky.
Not only Is Cuppy disabled, but their able
commander, Tebeau, sprained his back In
the third inning in hitting at a ball and had
to leave the game, O'Connor taking his
place. Tebeau was suffering so much that
lhe had to leave the ground and was at
tended by a physician in the cottage of
Groundlkeeper Murphy, who kindly offered
him its use. Tebeau may be Out of the
game some days, which will be a blow to
the C'leveland's prospects.
McGraw overexerted himself in the third
Inning and had a. slight attack of weak
ness. Quinn went to third and played it
well. McGraw said he would play today.
If Manager Hanlon, after seeing him
practice this morning, thinks Corbett in
good form, he will probably put the young
ster In to pitch against the Clevelands in
the second game of the Temple cup series
at 3:30) today. If he thinks Jerry Nops
is in the better form, Jerry will do the
Wallace is slated to do the pitching for
Cleveland. He has not shown much effec
tiveness against the champions this sea
son. Wilson is not very well. Cuppy will
probably try to pitch on Monday. If his
hand will not permit Young will likely try
his luck again.

ANOTHER DIG BASS,
A Four-Founder Landed Saturday by
The attention of the local fishermen was
generally attracted by the publication Wed
nesday of the truly remarkable catch of
Mr. Grenville Lewis in Little river last
Saturday. Mr. Lewis' five-and-a-half
pounder stands very near at the head in
the record of local bass catching, but "there
are others," The Star today received a
note from Mi'. A. Gonard of 10 Q street
northeast announcing that he, too, was
favored Saturday by the fiekle fortune that
attends fishermen. He writes that while
angling Saturday In the Potomac near
Sycamore Island, in company with Mr.
C. Fen Keys of 181.3 6th street northwest,
be landed a four-pound bass. Other good
catches are being reported from time to
time, and it looks as though this were In
deed a good year for bass fishing.
Looking for It.
From Household Words.
An Irishman once worked all day on the
prcmlse of getting a glass of grog. At
night the employer brought out the grog
to him, and the Irishman tasted it and said:
"Which did you put in first-the whisky
or. the water?'
"Oh," said the employer, "the whisky."'
"Urn-bum," mused the Irishman, "well,
may be I'11 come to it by ndr by."

Whist Club will open the chess season this
evening in a team match, in which all the
members in the city are expected to par
ticipate. Messrs. James Patterson and W.
A. Gwyer, Jr., two of the strong players of
the club, will lead the respective sides. The
teams will be chosen at 8 o'clock, und play
era who arrive later will also he paired.
Non-members are invited to be ,present, and
should there be enough tables to go around
they will be given an opportunity to play.
The annual tournament of the Washing
ton club will begin November 11. As the
tournaments of the club are for the pur
pose of promoting chess playing in the city,
it has been decided to open the tournament
to all players in the District. Entries will
close November 4. The entrance fee will be
$2. All the entrance money will he ured
for the purchase of prizes.as follows: Thirty
per cent to purchase the first prize, twenty
five per cent to purchase the second prize.
twenty per cent for the thidd prize, fifteen
per cent for the fourth prize, and ten J.er
cent for the fifth prize. Under this appor
tionment there will be five prizes, and the
difference between one prize and another is
slight. Each competitor plays but one
game with every other player, and but one
game is required to be played per week, un
less the number of competktors should ren
der it necessary.
The pairing of the players is to be done l.y
lot. The time limit will be forty moves for
the first two hours on each side, and twen
ty moves an hour thereafter.
Handicap Rules Modified.
The rules governing the continuous handi
cap tournaments at the Washington Chess
Club have been modified, beginning on the
1st instant. It was decided to separate the
players into five classes, viz: A, B, C, D, E.
One class gives players in the iext class
below KB pawn and move; two clIsses
below, KB pawn and two mov.aa; three
classes below. QK odds, and four classes
below QR odds. Draws do not count.
The number of prizes has been increased
to tive. including a special prize for the
player winning the greatest number of
games. To be eligible for a prize, a player
must play at least forty games in the three
months, with at least eight different play
ers. and at least five of the games must
be played with a player or players in the
same clat s as the prize winner. It is ex
pected, now that the cool weather has
returned, that there will be a marked in
c ease in the num)er of games played in
the continuous tourneys.
The third game In the match between
Messrs. L. Tharp and E. A. Tibbetts was
a French defense, defended by the latter.
It was a well-contested game throughout,
and was won by Mr. Tibbetts on its merits
after about eighty moves. Mr. Tharp was
pressed for time in the middle of the game.
'Ihe fourth game between these parties was
a ques-n's gambit delined, and resulted
in a draw, after sixty-five moves. The

The match by eprrespondence between
the Washingtcn aVd Brooklyn chess clubs
has been resuted, after an adjournment
during the summer months. The Brooklyn
Eagle says of these games:
'At an early date -in this contest. owing
to mismanagement and neglect of the com
mittee then in charge, the games were al
lowed to lapse into a very precarious state,
so much so that defeat was staring Brook
lyn in the face almost from the start. By
careful nursing, however, the positions
have since been put in shape to some ex
tent, and now one of the games at least
presents an equal state of affairs, as far
as Brooklyn is concerned, with possibly a
slightly stronger position. The other
game, thcugh, is, if position goes for any
thing. welinigh beyond redemption, having
been, in fact, an uphill fight against hope
since the opening, a Ruy Lopez, turned in
to a four knights' game. and defended on
Showalter's favorite, but unsound, lines.
The club members hereafter will be kept
busy analyzing the changing positions, and
it will not be through lack of effort that
either one of the two games will be lost."
The Washington players figure on surely
winning the Ruy Lopez, and at least get
tlng a draw in the queen's gambit declined.
The moves in the games to date are as

RAZOR KNIGHTS AROUSED.
Barbers' War Against Colleges In
From the New York Times.
In every barber's shop in this city and
twenty-seven other cities in New York
state razors were drawn with unusual care
and persistence yesterday over whetstones
and strops, and there was a glitter in the
eyes of boss barbers that boded no good to

"Down with barbers' colleges!"
"Perdition to the mushroom hair clip

From Rochester came the call to battle.
It was thundered out by Charles A. Prinz,
president of the Barbers' Protective Asso

to band together against shaving schools
and their graduates, and through his asso

required to pass an examination; in fact al
most every trade and profession in the

"Is the barber protected? No! Why not?
Simply because the barbers have not had
the gumption before to look out for their
own interests. But now they see to what
