TUBBY'S STUBBORN. COLTS
Forfeited the Game to the Light
Infantry Ball Tossers.
Commissioners Team Got Wrathy
BecRUHO tho Umpire Sent Fltzger
. aid to tho Bench.
Tho Departmental League game at
National Park yesterday afternoon be
tween the District Commissioners' nine
and the Infantry team was forfeited to
tho latter by "Tubby" Dickinson's ag
gregation by a score of 9 to 0.
Tho Commissioners on several previous
occasions have distinguished themselves
as rough ball tossers, but yesterday they
played the "baby act" whenever the oc
casion presented Itself.
Notw!thstan'ns tho calling down they
received in Thureday's contest with the
Y. M. C. A. nino, the Commissioners went
into the game with the Washington Light
Infantry team yesterday with the inten
tion of repeating their work, but thclnfantry
boys were up to suuff nfld would not take
"Tubby" Dickinson deliberately told
his men at the beginning of tho game to
slide feet first and spike the Inrantry
men every time they had the opportunity.
Fortunately they did not have the oppor
tunity, for the gnme was brought to a
sudden stop at the beginning of the third
At even innings the score stood tied,
and at the beginning of the third inning
the Infantry were up at the bat. Lee went
to first on Leech's error, Wisner hit to
short, and Lee was caught napping between
second and third. In the meantime Phil
stole second, and on Kleinschmidt's hit
"Tubby" was Availing for him at the
plate, and thought he had Wisner
blocked, but Phil "Ja'le a nice slide under
him, nnd Dlokinsoirfailed to get anywhere
near him with the ball. Umpire O'Neill,
whose Judgment on such decisions Is always
of n high order, called Wisner safe, and
then the kick commenced. The decision
was all right, for it was seen plainly by
every one on the grand stand, and they
all agreed with the umpire.
Instead or the two captains fighting it
out, Fitzgerald came up to Mr. O'Neill and
bgan to "chew the rag." Evidently "Fitz"
received no satisfaction, Tor he began to
abuso the umpire in every manner and
form. Ho uttered such oaths that Mr.
O'NoiIl sent him to the bench and refused to
let him play.
Then "Tubby" tookilupaml kicked awhile
and finally Bob Barr had to got a word in
aud thy discubsion continued until it was
positively nauseating. The spectators later
on lygan to take ahandiii it and thegenenil
scrap that prevailed was disgraceful to
tho league as well fas tb the national game.
Umpiro O'Neill guvo- the Commiss.ouers
duo time to get out Jn the field and play
ball and as they refused to do so, without
Fitzgerald, the gome; vag given to "the
Infantry by a score ot 9 to 0.
From the kicking the Commissioners did
it looked as though they were afraid of their
oppouents and therhad a right to.lw asthe
'score stood 4 to 2 in the Infantry's favor
whon theg&mewaSjCalled. Such exhibitions
as tho one of yesterday should -be stopped
if tho Departmental League expects to be
successful for tho spectators want to see a
game of ball when they pay their admission
and not a prize fight.1
Pitcher Fitzgerald, after the game, in
dignantly denied the umpire's charge that
he bad uted prqtanity. and stated that
the oaths were all on the side of the Sol
diers! WON IN THE EIGHTH.

The bookies wound up the week's sport
at the Island by giving the talent one part
ing shotin the way of awinninyJarkhorse
before they let them go home for the rest
They reserved it for the closing event, and
as-good as 40 to 1 could be had against
it at times. Little Joe was the one to do
the trick and Patsy MoDermott was the boy
to bring him home.
Up to tills race the handlcappers had suc
ceeded in landing three out of five favor
ites and had visions of scoring a victory by
putting the closing race on their side of
The card which wasoffered wasoriginally
a very full one, but by the time the races
were started had been scratched down to a
respectable s'ze, most of the races having
just about enough starters to make good
racing and batting without having so many
horses at the post that it would take the
starter half the day to get them away.
HOT, HOTTER, HOTTEST.
If the regulars thought it was hot at Uie
St. Asaph track on Frriday, they changed
their minds when they struck the Island
betting ring yesterday. In comparison the
St. Asapli ring and grand stand were as
cool as a summer in the Arctic ocean.
The Island betting ri.-g was simply un
bearable. They are not quite as pro
gressive at the Island as their neighbors
down the way, and have not yet added
electric fans to their list of comforts. The
ice cream and water melon men did the
biggest business of the day and were the
best things the talent had a bet down on
at any btage of the game.
Baccarat was at all times a favorite in
the opening race, which was for the young
sters, but a strong play on Princess Helen
kept his price up, and he closed a couple
or points better than he opened. Helen
is a pretty fast filly, but McElmoel's colt
had the foot of iwr and won with ease.
Princess Helen was second with Rapids, a
15 to 1 chance, third.
On his recent races Joe Alack seemed
to hold his field in the second event safe,
and was accordingly made a hot favorite,
closing at 3 to 5.
He did not have such a cinch as was
anticipated, as Finn water, who was a
well played second choice, landed the
money. Joe Mack succeeded in running
into second place, with Arda a good third.
AN EAS 1' THING FOR HIM.
Old Glenall had dropped into a soft place
in the third race, but the talent completely
overlooked him and made Bella G the
first ch&ice. As good as 4 to 1 could be
had against Glenall at post time. Parsons
rode a good race on him and brought the
old horse home a winner. The favorite
was second, with Home Run third.
Mirage simply played with the field that
he met in the fourth race. He was in front
from the drop of the flag and won in a
hand gallop from Odd Socks. The finish
for the place between the latter and Lotion
was very pretty. Odd Socks kept his nose
in front to the wireand gotthemoney.
In the firth event, Eclipse Jr., who was
au equal favorite, with Forest, was allowed
to lead until within a hundred yards of the
wire wheu Murphy let out his wrap on Key
West aud drawing away won handly by
a length from Eclipse Jr., with Sonora

ful finish between Little Joe, Tear Drop and

Berlin, Aug. 10. The war celebrations
that have taken place this week have been
complete successes In all the German States
where they were held. This proves the
realness of the popular enthusiasm for
Daily demonstrations occurred in front
of the Niedrawald monument at Ruedsheim.
On Thursday a hundred delegates from the
veteran societies of Dortmund and Hoerdt
deposited on the base of the statue a huge
laural wreath and palm branches.
Major Harz then delivered a fiery pa
triotic speech to tho veterans and the
crowd that had assembled to witness the
ceremony, and he was frequently Inter
rupted by applause. One hundred and
sixty delegates from the Saxony Chas
seurs and infantry societies deposited six
huge oak wreaths at the foot of the statue,
after which they gave cheers for the em
peror, the empire aud Prince Bismarck.
The town of Tuebingen celebrated the
battle of Woerth by a field service in the
cemetery and a procession in the Market
Place. The Rev. Mr. Geramler, rector of
the university, delivered a speech. The
celebration was attended by all the pro
fessors of the university, the officers of
the garrison and the members of the vari
ous societies and guilds of the town. la
the evening a banquet was given at the
museum, salutes were fired, and the town
Prof. Phlelderer, in a speech, said:
The Bavarian veterans' generous act at
the beginning of the celebrations was
everywhere approved. They, in the midst
of a great crowd, had deposited a beautiful
laurel wreath on the tomb of the French
soldiers killed in 1S70 and 1871 and buried
at Munich. The secretary of the veterans
in depositing the wreath said:
"I place this laurel wreath in the name
of the veterans on the tomb ot the French
soldiers. They, too, fought and died for
the!r fatherland. They doubtless were our
enemies, but in death there is neither en
emy nor friend. We pray in silence for
them." - -
Berlin alone has as yet taken o spirited
part In the celebrations. The Socialist
leaders are greatly displeased, seeing that
great numbers of Socialist workmen else
where are taking part in the celebrations,
they believing that the patriotic demonstra
tions will result in a slackening of the
workmen's allegiance-to the party and in
weakening party discipline.
The Berlin chamber of commerce has
issued its report for 1S9-1. The general
state of business Is described as unfavorable
except In certain branches.
The latest census of Berlin showing that
the city does not contain near as many in
habitants as it was supposed it did has
caused the shopkeepers to shake their
heads and to remark that formerly the pop
ulation rose from fifty to sixty thousand
yearly, while now It is nearly stationary.
It appears to be hopeless for Berlin to over
take Paris, which is now 800,000 ahead
Vienna is pressing Berlin closely, while
St Petersburg progresses more rapidly
than the German capital. In Berlin there
are now more than forty-five thousand
apartments without tenants.

Is devoted very largely to a discussion
of Germany's relations with Great Britain,
which do not Improve despite the acqui
sition of Lord Salisbury to the Briti--h.
premiers.hip. The anti-British feeling has
bnen growing here since 1S94, when Lord
Roseberry's policy toward Russia was re
garded as an attempt to procure the pohti
cal isolation of Germany.
It is Great Britain's treatment of smaller
questions, especially of colonial matters,
that Germany complains of. The Sampan
question and questions pertaining to sev
eral districts in Africa, which are pend
ing between the two countries, are Irri
tating to Germany. Unless Great Britain
shows a good will to meet Germany half
way she must be prepared for sharp re
prisals. The Hon. Theodore Runyon, the American
ambassador, returned to Berhn to-day from
Baden, and will resume the duties of his
office on Monday. Mrs. and Mrs Eunyon
have not yet returned.
Mrs. De"Kay, the wife of the American

VICTLM OF TROLLEY POLES.
Auditing: from a Car.
Another victim ot the deadly trolley pole,
Mr. Stephen B. Callahan, of No. S02 North.
Capitol street, islying in a serious condition
at the Sibley Memorial Hospital- While
riding on an Eckington and Soldiers' Home
electric car Wednesday night, Mr. Cal
lahan desired to get off just bfeore the
road curves at the Eckington station of the
B. & O. Railroad.
He called to the conductor to stop the
car, but that official, it appears, paid no
attention to the request. The car was
bowling along at full speed, and in hi3
anxiety to get off and not be carried into
the deep cut just beyond the railroad sta
tion, Mr. Cailahan, after again calling upon
the conductor to stop, tried to alight
from the moving vehicle. As he stepped
from the platform he was dashed violently
against one of the iron trolley poles and.
the next instant lay bleeding and un
conscious on the roadway.
Dr. Suddarth was called and Mr. Calla
han was removed to his home. On the fol
lowing morning hi3 condition became seri
ous, and theinjured man was taken toSibley
Hospital, where he Is now being treated by
Drs. JamesSuddarthand John VanRensse
lacr. He is seriously injured about thg
shoulders, breast, hips and head.
