Zimmerman, so dispatches say, is negoti
ating for .1 race with the Frenchman,
Iluben This Frenchman is the only man
on the other tide who ever beat the Auier
race with him OnlKurily Zlinn.erinau lp
icau, and hence t'nV latter's desire to get i
not, looking for races This was shown
when the Lexington, Ky., trotting horse
people offered a pure of $10,000 ror n
race between him and John Johnson The
latter promptly accepted the tempting
bail, but Zliimr-rnrin was too shrewd to be
drawn Into j coldest that might have cost
him a beating.
An Indianapolis man has found a new
field for the bicjcle. He has turned It into
a traveling baloon. He had himself made
a suit of loose clothes with capacious pock
ets Then he loaded hfrusief up with
half pint bottles of bad mm nnd started
out for business. Oil the country roads
frequented by riders he built up a laud
office trade. The officials got onto Thomas
Jenkins and bad him fined.
The purse of $5,000 which has been
hung up by Buffalo for Johnson, Sanger
and Tyler to compete for on Labor Day
is attracting much attention for the novel
way in wMch it is being advertised The
pictures of the riders are dltpljyed In a
Buffalo shopkeeper's window. Around
them are wreathed $20 gold pieces, while
at the foot of the pictures the remainder of
the coin lies In a heap A policeman
watches the treasure night and day.
John S. Johnson is about well again, and
expects to get into the bicycle races at the
Buffalo trottli-g meeting, now going on.
Johnson expects to do some greater riding
even than he has yet done before this
season closes. Johnson was the first
bicyclist to ride a mile inside of two
minutes by flying start, standing start,
straightaway unpaced, standing competi

lie can beat every record he now holds.

No Doubt of the Battle.
The air wan filled -with boxing talk In
every resort In town last night. Every
where the followers of this kind of sport
were filled with enthusiasm. It was alt
brought on by the contest to tako place be
tween Billy McMillan and Pat IlacdT,
which is to take place before the Eureka
Club to night. Perhaps there was ncer so
much Interest taken In a local content as
is being shown in this one. Each man linn
a host of friends, and each will uav e plenty
of encouragement from supporters when
they don the mittens tonight.
McMillan came up from his training
quarters at Marlboro today. He was
accompanied by Peckham As stated yes
terday In the Evening Times, McMillan Is
In better condition than he ever was before
In his life. It Is a well understood fact
that Billy don't take lovingly to the work
that hard and careful training entails,
and that therefore he has been more or less
careless about getting hlmeslf iuto shape
This time, howeer, believing that he lias
a rattier difficult job on his hands, he buck
led to his task, and went through with it
without Hinchiug. lie Is welt pleased with
the experiment. It has resulted well.
Raedy will come iuto town from Ms train
ing place, the Outing Club grounds, this af
ternoon. In the way of getting ready for
an eveut such as he will git into tonight.
Tat is not like his opponent. Ho sems
to like the exercise and discipline that
good training calls for, and he goes into
his work with n reeling of pleasure. I'at
has not been found an easy thing to get
down to the weight agreed upon, but now
that he lias reached it he seems to be none
tile worse off. Ho says he feels good and
strong, nnd capable of putting up Uie best
contest of his life.
Yesterday it was understood Ned Dotinel
ly would handle Raedy la to night'sperforra
ance, but other arrangements seem to have
been made late yesterday afternoon A
gentleman who Is Interested In the money
part of Uieaff air, and who hag been looking
after Pat with much care lately, told the
Evening Times reporter last night that
a Wilmington man would look after Raedy.
This man Is Tony Stannnrd. Tony Is of
the new school of boxers He has been
pretty successful with the men he has had
ucder his care, and is regarded as pains
taking and competent, but it Is doubtful
whether ho wilt do better than Donnelly
could Ktil knows all of the tricks of the
boxing trade Tin re has been no change in
theplans laid nut by the McMiltanparty.
"WITH THE HALL PLAYERS.
Ordinarily, when n man meets with a
mishap, he finds at least rome people who
are willing to sympathize -with him. But
that wasn't the case when Clarke fell a
victim to a mishap yesterday. Hoffer sent
a hot ball in that just tipped the bat and
landed squarely on Clark's wind pipe. The
bleachers seemed delighted. The accident
made the lanky Baltimorean pump very
hard for breathing material, and laid him
off for a minute or two, but he finally
rounded to and wentat bis work again with
a will, and got even by turnirg plump old
Cartwright almost a somersault as the
latter came home for a run. Cartwright
went into the air six feet from the plate
and came down about six feet on the other
side of it.
Big Bill Joyce goes along In bl9 hard
bitting without let-up. Yesterday he was
the king-piu in this line. As usual. Bill had
several tongue fights with the umpire and
Baltimore players. BUI thought ho had
good cause to raise the wind, because of a
decision made by Kecfe. When he went to
the bat the next time he was out for blood.
He looked liko a man who was ready and
quite willing to crew up every Oriole In
sight, feathers nnd all. Ho seized the club
and let drive at tho first ball Hoffer of fered
him. It went up ai.d up until it looked as
though it would never come down. It
landed, however, about the time Hill went
over the plate fcr a home run, and Bill's
wrath was appeased.
It's a hard head that Jack Crooks has on
him. If it wasn't It would be pjtp to-day.
Hoffer hit him a crack on the left car with
the ball yesterday that would have knocked
an ordinary man out. Crooks spun around
like a top, but be kept his feet, inter In
the game Hoffer plumped one Into Cart
wright The thump sounded like a brick
going against a tack of oats, and, although
the boll came In like a shot from a gun,
and made the big fellow wince, 11 didn't
set him pramlng around as most playe
do when they encounter such a mishap.
He soaked the ball lor a base the next
time it came along.
Jake Boyd has Indeed struck a telling
pitching gait. His work yesterday was
fine. Only In one inning did the hard hit
ters from Baltimore get In on him, and then
Just for a minute or so When Jake found
that the visitors were getting too sure he
pulled himself together and stopped fur
ther gnycly. Jake also had his day at hit
ting players. Twice he Hnded on Keeler.
That Individual threw down his bat onco
and started into the field as though he was
going to commit murder, bat afterthought
brought him around to bis wits and he
trotted off to his base.
Manager Schmelz was a well pleased
man yesterday. He set on the bench and
TiSwed I'i? "Ji.""0 ?

game meant the top-notch for the Orioles,

progressed. Never a time during the after
noon did a smile brighten his countenance,
but he drew a sigh of relief when the
agony was over. It was a trying day for
You hg Mr. Hoffer got I nto ft Very hot place

simply had tbalr true batting strength with
them, and they gavo it up. No pitcher in
the League could jiavc stopped them ester

THACK AND STABLE.
WJlllaru Penn, the great trotting stallion
that went lame nt Cleveland after his hard
race with KiamaTh at Detrolt.-rs still In
bad shape, and it Is doubtful whether he
will be able to start at Buffalo. Penn
trotted the third heat of the 2.10 race
at petroit In 2 07 1 4. He is a wonderful
horse and his owner will lose a fortune
if he should turn out to be permanently
injured. Penn Is believed by many to lie
the fnstiwt trotter in the world. Raymond,
the owner of Klannth , who got a record of
2 08 1 4 at Detroit, and who beat Penn
again at Clevelaud, does not hesitate to
say that Willl.iru has got a great deal more
speed than Klimath. and that it was
simply bad driving at Detroit that gave
his horse the race.
They are talking In the West of matching
O'Connell against any six furlong horse

Dell, fays that, while he believes bis horse
can beat antyhing living at that dltance,
he does not care to place a big bet, but
that other Wctcrners can do so If they

There's talk at Buffalo of bringing the
pacers Afrite and Fldol together in a
match. Neither of these horses had a mark:
better than 2-14 when this season's hnr
ness racing began, nnd now both have
records below 2 06. They are both vc.ry
game horses that fight every inch of every
heat, and the woukl make a splendid race.

FIRE DUGS ACROSS THE KIVEK.
Jlluzo in Alexandria Supposed to Bo
Jt Incendiary Origin.
The grocery store of J. W. Goods & Bro.,
at King and Patrick streets, Alexandria,
was, at an early hour this morning, dis
covered to be on fire.
Policemen Ferguson and Sherwood, who
were in the vicinity, hastened to the spot
and dise-overed a woman leaning out of
a second stor- window, calling for "assist
ance. She said the building was Id flames and
She couid not get ouWD stairs. Olficer
Sherwood went to the Columbia engine
houso, nnd Officer Ferguson ran a square
"tor a ladder with which to -rescue her.
When Officer Ferguson returned the
woman, overcome by the smoke, had falleD
to tho floor on the inside of the building.
f olicemeii Atkinson and Parks, who bad
meautline arrived, entered the window by
means of the ladder and brought her to
the street. Sho was Miss Betty Monroe, a
seamstress, who occupied the secoud story
front room. She was carried to the home
of llev. Dr. Hall, across the street, nmi in
an hour recovered from the effects of the
In the second story back room lived John
Burns and wife. The police and firemen
made a search for them, and, not being
found, it was thought they had perished
on tho first rtoor while trying to leave the
building. Later Burns was discovered' In
the crowd and it was learned that both he
and his wife had escaped and hod first
given the alarm. Miss Monroe said she
was awakened by the smell of smoke and
tho crackling of the flames. The entire
fire department was called out and in half
an hour after the turning in of the alarm
the blaze was extinguished.
An examination leads to the belief that
tho firo was of Incendiary origin. It was
discovered that the blinds had been rorced
open, the window broken and a fire started
under the wiadosr. This was in a room In
tho roar of the store.
The building where-the fire occurred Is
a three-story brick. The damage to stock
was about $1,200 or $1,600, with an In
surance of $1,200. The damaged to the
building amounted to $500, covered by
insurance In the name of Mr. Evans, the
owner, who lives in Washington.

BOUNTY StiOAR ALREADY SOLD.
Between 00 and 95 per cent, of the sugar
for the production of which bounty is now
asked ha s long since been sold and delivered
and could not be located or identified.
That remaining In stock will be examined
and inspected by tbespecialforceappointed
to assi-t the collector in New Orleans, who
is charged with the adjudication of claims.
A liberal policy was adopted by the Oov
ernment toward the sugar planters. The
latter are allowed to offer in evidence bills
of lading and any papers showing thecona-
mercial weight of sugar sold which will
be considered as cumulative testimony in
settling the claim.
In addition, the affidavit or business
managers, roremen. and those in charge
or plantations tending to show that the
planter actually produced the sugar on
which ho asks bounty, may be tiled. Any
testimony collected to corroborate the
original claim Is accepted for consldera lion.
But the planters were not satisfied with
this unusually fair treatment, but raised
annproar to the eflect that the Government
should take their weight as given by their
own bjreau and require no Turther evi
dence. It is safe to say that this course
will not bo pursued. - - -
