Tlic first shut-out of the season of tThe
Tlmcb Juenilc League was admiDlstcrcU
to tlic OrienU by the Potomac-sat Arsenal
Park yesterday, when the score stood 20 to
0. -K Is ton hail the Orients completely
at liNnicrcy, only three hits being made off
bis delivery. The support given lilmwasof
the gilt-edse order, the work or the team
behind tiimabouudiugln pretty pUys, seem
ing base lilts being cut orr, and Hies pulled
down with great ease.
Dalrj mplc of the Orients also pitched good
ball, but his support was wretched attimes.
While it is hard to see how the Orients
could hae won jesterday, with better sup
port of their pitcher they would have held
their op)onenl8' score down, and with a
little timely batting saved a shut-out.
TOOK THIRD PLACE.
There was no discount on the work of
the Potomacs, and it shows that the team
Is determined to posse-,s The Tiiueb' trophy
if earnest effort will secure It.
By wlnnlngyesterday the rotomacs moved
Into third place, at the Mime time shoeing
the Orients down the ladder.
The game this alternoon will be be
tween the Senators and Zephyrs, and
as these 'pains are among the clubs tied for
fourth place they -will liotb strive hard
for the game. 131a ud and Lowd will umpire.
As a change in the schedule Is contem
plated, only tlic two games for tomorrow
"are announced, the first one, at 2 p.m.,
being lN-iween the leaders of the league,
the Cliffliurn", and the Eastern Eagles.
CLOSE GAMES EXPECTED.
As the Eagles have strengthened consid
erably they will make it very Interesting
for the Cliffburns, and a close game may
be looked for. The leaders will have to
play ball all Ihe time to win the contest.
Kinslow and Ilillon will umpire this game.
The second game tomorrow will bring
together the Defenders and Potomacs,
when Ilauuanuin and Meync will um
pire. The second game will start at 4:30
p. in., and an interesting game Is expected.

Hilly Clingman Is playing a great third

Some Louisville people also thought this.
If Hilly keeps up his present good work he

The Boston plaj-ers to a man declare as
untrue the paragraph published in a local
paper to the effect that Tcnney Is more
popular with the public than with the

an Injustice, and that he, too, wants
an emphatic contradiction of the state
ment. Manager Mack is surely having his
troubles. When a pitcher Is In form then
the field goes up in tbealr.
The Boston club is securing good patron
age, but critics are harshly talking of
the parsimony of the management in re
fusing to expend a little money in posting
the scores of other games upon a black
board for the benefit of patrons. This Is

compete. This will add great interest
to the tournament, as the Philadelphia boj-s
have alwajs made a good showlug In the
championships. Besides Philadelphia,

Chief Consul Conway W. Bams of Balti
more wus In Washington yesterday evening
for the purpose of arranging the details for
a scries of inter-city bicycle races between
a team of three men from Baltimore and
three from Washington, the events to be
decided by points, and to take place alter
nately on the Park cycle track of that
city, and the Washington track. Mr. Sams
met W. S. UcKe.iu, secretary of the Wash
ington track, and Chief Consul W. T. Rob
ertson of the District of Columbia.
Mr. Sams had Baltimore's proposition
rcadj-, but the officials of Washington were
In no position to talk business, as the track
officials nnd Chief Consul Robert-sou failed
to the Washington contingent the ideas of
Baltimore cjclcrs as to the manner in
which the races should be run, and the
prizes widen should be given. He ex
plained that his statement was only a sug
gestion, und he wished to hear similar sug
gestions from the Washingtonlaus as a
basis for a mutual agreement, s
The Washington cjclcrs seemed to un
derstand Mr. Bams' position, but could
not negotiate until they had arrived at
an agreement among themselves. They
tald they hoped to accomplish this agree
ment during the week and notify the Bal
timore end of the arrangement by Monday
evening. The Mar j land division is ex
ceedingly desirous, for the events and
stand ready to gn to work.
The plan of the Mar j land off icials was to
select the best three amateurs from each
city Tor a series or five races for a cup
and Individual prizes, the event to be de
cided upon the total number of points
ecore.l at the end nf the season.
When this affair was first broached to
the Washington people they accepted the
suggestion with avidity.and declared them
selves as ready for the fray. Since then
they seemed to have had some dirftculty

Liun Banks was riding along the highway
on his bicycle near Rajtown. Mo. He was
happy and care rt'Etcd lightly upon his
shoulders. He could have stcod quite a load
of care above those pneumatic tires. Some
where near the city limits Linn rode upon a
rattlesnake. The reptile was stretched
across the raid like a dead limb, and the
rider thorghtit would be gcod fun to ride
over ids snakcshlp's head and end Lis con

the wheel directly at the snake's ejes and
struck him fairly.
There vras a report nnd. -i hiss, and the air
went out of the front tire as it dues out of
a defeated politician's boom. The fangs of
the snake had bored through the rubber

No Truth in Rumors Concarning

A Haltimorc paper this morning published
a story to thccfrcct that Mr. O. P. Staples,
proprietor or the Rlggs House. In this city,
will probably secure control or the Grand
Opera House in a few daj-s. The story
"Mr. Staples holds a second mortgage of
$40,000 on the property, which belongs to
the Washington Light Infantry, and the
Interest rell due oa June 1. owing to the
extension of time granted the lessees of
the opera house on their rent, the interest
was not forthcoming, nor has it jet been
paid. This morning Mr. Staples made the
Light Infantry a proposition to buy the
S110.000 or bonds which form the first
mortgage, to furnish the money for the in
terest due, and to hold it for twenty years.
The orrcr will probably beaccepted."
"The absorption of the; first mortgageby
the second does not necessarily mean a
cliange in the management of the theater,
although that may follow. It is assert.-d.
that the lease held by Mr. E. II. Allen
for the Grand Opera House Stock Com
pany Is void under Its own terms and can
be terminated at any time. But neither
the Infantry company nor Mr. Staples with
to close the leas, as the terms are regarded
as especially favorable.
"Mr. Allen's connection with the theater
has been rather unfortunate. He took It
Just at the beginning of a disastrous the
atrical season at a" rent almost CO per
cent Higher than had ever U-cn paid be
fore. To obtain an entrance on Pennsyl
vania avenue he had to rent a store, ut
$3,000 a year and spend thousands In
fitting up the lobby. In addition, the Im
provements in the tb eater nnd renovations
cost several thousand doira;-, mere. More
over, witli three llrst-clnss houses to di
vide the patronage which formerly Tvent
to two, all suffered more or less. Mr. Allen
several times had attrac,tiQU3 represented
to be firat-class which turned out to be
so bad that he had to close down fur
the week to maintain the reputation of
his house. It Is fair to him to say that
he did this willingly to maintain the pre
tige ol the 'Grand. .As Mr. Allen is
very popular in this city It-is hoped that
under the new management another agree
ment can be made by which the present
lessees retain control of the house."
A Tiii.es reporter called upon Mr. Allen
this morning in regard to the rumored
change, but that gentleman stated he had
nothlnt: to say .at present. Mr. Staples,
however, was not so tetltcnt. He unhesl
tntluglj denied most or the story, raiticu
larly that part in regard to his tecuriug
contrr.l of the house.
"It Is true." he said, "that I hold a
mortgage on the property and that the in

been adjusted and cverj thing Is now all

saved from death by the assistance of
several men in a neighboring field. They

He was in the center or the big field, and
had no means or derense. With head down

The deputies in their boats make tho

sters with thousands of eggs tucked away
under their broad tails; scrape out the eggs
and turn the lobster looe. They pay the
fishermen 10 cents for each roe-lobster.
The eggs are carried to Wood's Holl or
