CGIDEHTS AT'THE RAGES
The Sport at Fort Jlyer 3Iarred
by Two Mishaps,
SOCIETY WAS IX ATTENDANCE
An Unusually Large Crowd Gathered
to -"Watch tlio Gentlemen Races.
Ruin Failed to Dampen .Enthusi
asm 3Jst of Horses and Riders
tiud Officers of the Course.
The gentlemen races, under the auspices
ftf the Foit Myer Hiding Club, were urn
yesterday on the drill field at the Iort.
It was a gala day; the animals were in
fine reUle, and the ildcrs were enthused
with t)ie spitit of the occasion, but un
fortunately, two accidents, which occurred
during the last race, considerably mailed
tltumlcasure of the day's sport.
Tlie accidents happened neai 11. e end of
the race. Lieut- Short, who was in the
lead'ln tlie steeplechase, was tin own from
Ids horse at tlie last, but one, hurdle, and
Sidney Ilollaway had a like mishap alter
clearing the last Hurdle.
As. the accident to Lieut. Short oc
curred at the extreme turn in tlie course it
. was some time before tiie spectators real
ized what had happened. Presently the
crowd hurried to the scene, but by the time
" it arrived the officer had regained his feet.
His horse, "Fiee Silver," was a trifle
longer in coming around.
While all tliib was happening the other
riders in the race came thundering on to
the finish. Up to tills time Lieut. Short
and Master Sidney Ilollaway bad been
alternating in the lead, and when the
ronner went down Mr. F. "V. Page, on
Dare Devil," closed up tlie gap which
separated him from "Bully Boy," ridden
J - by young Hollaway, and started down tlie
stretch lor tlie last hurdle at a breakneck
speed. "Sid," as Master Hallo way's name
was shouted by a thousand voices, was
equal to tiie occasion, and rerused to go
' back to second place. The little fellow had
made a game fight to win, and now the
situation was desperate.
The two rideis reached the hurdle to
gether, and both rose in theairatthe same
time and cleared it splendidly. On reach
ing the ground ''Bully Hoy'' stumbled and
went down, at tlie uninc time, throwing
young ilollaway high over his head. The
game little lad was immediately picked
up, but lie wab in an unconscious condi
tion. lie wab immediately taken to tlie hos
pital up at tlie fort. It was leported soon
urter that he hail regained consciousness,
and tlie only damage was Hie bad shaking
up he bad suffered.
Barring these accidents it was a fine
event. Washington society was there in
full force. Tlie cast .-ide ot the track was
lined with surreys, -victorias, landaus,
drags, tea carts and dog carts, occu
pied by the smart set of capital society.
Shortly after the races commenced, alight
rain began to fall, but this in no manner
interfered with the sport. The racing
kept right on and society held its place,
determined to see the finish of the
racing event of the season.
The half-mile flyer, which was won by
Mr. David Porter, was by long odds the
most amusing eventof the day. There were
six entries. From tlie several directions
taken by tlie riders very 60on after the
start it was evident that they were not
agreed as to the course. To add to this
complication of affairs, two of tlie horses
in the lead bolted and refused to follow
tlie heels of the winner.
Great interest was manifested in the
"pony jump,' for which there were four
ontrie. Three or these Madge, rldrici by
Mr. Wailach; Babe, ridden by Lieut. Short,
and Jack, ridden by Mr. Dm nc tied in the
first trial. In tlie run-off the hurdles were
raised to three feet in height, and Madge
made a clean score and won, with Babe a
Master Sidney Hollaway recovered from
bis slinking up very quickly under the care
or the hospital physician and was removed
to his home at Chevy Chase.
The judges or the races were Dr. French,

A TRANSFER BOX BURNED
The Fire Caused Much Excitement
While It Lasted.
A Coal Oil Stove Exploded and Four
Alen Were 1'nnJc-Strlelten.
The Losis $1,000.
Everybody who has ridden any con
siderable number or times on the cars
or the Capital Traction Company have at
one time or another had occasion to pro
cure a transfer ticket ut the little box
at the corner of Fifteenth and G streets,
directly in Iront of the Treasury building.
At that particular box no more tianslers
will be Issued, for yesterday afternoon
it was burned to the ground, and of its
charred ruins there remained not enough
to be taken away in a wheelbarrow.
People who changed cars at that point
last night looked surprised at the pec.liar
little shanty from which transfers to
Georgetown and Fourteenth street weie
handed out. Then they looked again, and
observed that something was wrong, but
just what was the matter the average
traveler was notable to explain, and then,
as a rule, while wailing for their train
they made inquiry.
ixecoruing to the estimate, made by the
night transfer man, he told tlie story of
tlie burning of his business habitation
over 3,000 times. Perhaps ills staloment
was a little exaggerated, but he repeated
tlie story or the fire so often that when
a Times reporter made inquiry, be was
able to give the account in a very lucid
manner and with gestures.
Policeman Emmert, who is detailed at
the junction of Fifteenth street, New York
and Pennsylvania avenues, went Into the
transfer station to get a drink or water.
There were thrccother persons in the little
building at the time, and it was conse
quently crowded, so that, in some manner,
in turning to go out, his coat caught upon
the coal-oil stove and upset it, and an im
mediate explosion followed.
The four men made a dash through the
door to escape, and two ladies, who were
approaching the window to secure their
transfers, heard the explosion and nearly
swooned in the stieet. In an instant the
box was on file, and an alarm was sent
in, to which engines No. and 0 lcspondtd,
but were only able to save a portion or
the shed over the sidewalk and under
which the building stood. The depart
ments had just turned out their thousands
of clerks, and there was soon a tumultuous
crowd and much excitement. The fire
had Its amusing Incidents as well, for the
crowd could not suppress its shouts when
the truck company arrived with its lad
ders thirty and forti feet Jong to aid In
extinguishing a fire in a building about
seven fcefc tall.
The entire damageis estimated at nearly
$1,000. Besides the loss or the building,
which was finely constructed, it. con
tained two complete punting outfits, in
cluding piess and considerable typo which
is usedin printing the transfers, and which
were made especially for the company.
Besides these theie were also burned' sev
eral overcoats belonging to employes and
considerable other properly. Policemu.fi

A peculiar incident In connection with
the lire is the fact that the stove which

A score or persons iconnCcfed with the
Tension Department viidted ex-Deputy
Commissioner II. C. Bell ilist,, night, at nis
home, No. 18 Foiirtii street southeast.
Mr. and Mrs. Bell g5vc"ufem a cordial
welcome, while wondering what had
caused the unexpected visit? of so many.
They were not keptlqng in suspense, for
Mr. AV. T. Pierson, chufrman of the board
Of pension appeals, took the center or the
room and made a clever speech. He re
ferred to the twelve years' service
of Mr. Bell in the Pension Department,
and particularly to the last four yeais as
deputy commissioner. Air. J'lcrson com
inc'iuled his administration, and declared
that wlnlo Mr. Bell is an Intense partisan,
he never permitted politics to interfere
with the discharge of his duty, nor per
mitted it to stand in the way of merited
promotion or preferment.
Mr. Pierson, having said many very
pleasant and truthrul things about Mr.
Bell, he in the name, or 1G0 members of
tlie Pension Bureau presented the ex
deputy commissioner with an elegant gold
watch, chain, and cliami. The front case
of the timepiece bore tlie. initials of the
recipient, and the obverse side had on
It "1897." On tlie inner case was this
"Hon. II. C. Uell,' from his fiiends iu
the Pension Bureau, April 7, 1807."
Mr. Bell was deeply effected by the ele
gant token of regard his former sub
ordinates had given him, and it was not
without effort that he was able to express
Ills appreciation. After a row rambling re
marks his seir-posression returned, aijd
he made one or those eloquent speeches
that becntnu noted during the campaign
last year. The guests passed a pleasant
evening before returning to their homes.
k DRUNKEN ITALIAN'S PLOT
Attempted to Blow Up a Train
A rolicetnnn Grappled With Him,
and, Assistance Coining:, Tie Wuh
Mount Vernon, N. 1'., April ".-'An ex
traordinary outiage, by which hundieds
of lives might have been sacrificed, was
attempted by an Italian at West -Mount
Vernon late last night.
Ballidinl Picanini, an Italian labnier,
in a di unken frenzy, deliberately attempted
to blow ui the midnight local with dyna
mite, ami bad his purpose remained un
discovered for three more minutes the
town would undoubtedly today have been
plunged into universal mourning for many
or its foremost citizens. I
Just before thenorthbound train was due
to pass a spot near West Mount Vernon,
Policeman Bovcaugh saw -an Italian sitting
by the track. He had previously been ob
served to be acting in a mysterious man
ner, and the policeman, determined to in
vestigate. . ;
When he npprouched the nian the latter
appeared to be lying close.. Co the north
bound track in a lielplesKAtate of intoxica
tion, but closer inspection 'showed that tlie
ltallaa held two big bars of ia substance,
which by the light of his lantern, Devcaugh
quickly recognized as dynamite, immedi
ately over the rails of the track.
When asked what he traK. doing there,
the man surlily replied1 tlmt.he was going
to blow up the next train that passed.
Devcaugh seized the Italian and at
tempted to drag him .from the place, but
his diabolical adversary was of extremely
powerful build, and a terrific struggle
The policeman cried loudly for help,
nml It was not until four more jolicemen
had come to his assistance that the
frenzied Italian could lie carried from the
place. The next moment the New York
train, with its merry crowd of returning
theatergoers, all unconscious of the peril
they had escaped, dashed past the spot.
It is believed that Picanini was actuated
by nnnrehistic motives to attempt the dia
bolical outrage. On Saturday night last a
meeting of about forty Italians was held
in the Italian barracks at West Mount Ver
non, and many incendiary and violent
speeches against capital and capitalists
Picanini was at this meeting, and his at
tempt to wreck the train was probably the
result of fanatical anarchism. '

Capt. McCarthy's Great Catch in

"Wiik Lucking; and the Profes-
The crippled collegians from across the
creek gave the big leaguers a wurm argu
ment yesterday. The game was"scrappy"
and snappy enough to remind one of a de
ciding Temple Ciqi Contest between the
Spiders and Orioles.
The 'Varsity boys fought for every inch
of ground, and beset Umpire Ileydler at
times like veterans in the art of kicking.
To the regular fans their pugnacity "was
refreshing and enjoyable, and gave basis
for the belief that when they meet Yale,
-Princeton, and "Pennsy" they will talk
'em out of the game il they fail othei wise.
Coacli Kelly, of the Baltiniorcs, must have
injected a whole lot of ginger into the
youngsters, ns It boiled out of them eater
day upon the slightest provocation on part
Owing to the accident to Dawson, Ma
loney's bplit finger and .McCarthy's lame
ness, the team was not at its best, though
the substitutes for the above trio per
formed their parts well .
The re-entree, for this game only, of
George Mahoney strengthened the students,
or course, as the presence of "Big Mike '
alone gives them nerve and determination.
"Mike"' was not iu the pink of form, ow
ing to lack of regular practice, but at that
he frequently showe.l theold-tlmebrilllancy
and dasn that earned him theproud reputa
tion of the best all-round college ball
player hi tlie country. Though his hands
were not hardened to the task, he caught
the entire game, and, barring a single bad
throw to second, his work was perfect.
Mahoney was given hearty applause when
he walked on the Held, and that the
Georgetown folk retain confidence in his
ability was evidenced whenever he came
to hat, ami the rooters would importune
him to "line her out Just like you uster."
It was not his "good-eye" day, however,
a punky Utile hit towunl third, which he
beat out, and a single to lert Tieing his
achievements with the stick. The hit to
lelt, though, was full of steam and ripped
tiie grass like a bull-tongue plow.
Previous to tlie game Capt. McCarthy
thought he would be unable to play, but
arter warming up hi practice lie attempted
to fill his position. But the exertion was
too much, and in the fifth inning he gave
his glove to Tracer. l)eiplte his lameness,
McCarthy, while in left, played brilliantly.
His one-hand hack ward catcli of DeMontre
villc's hard drive in the fourth was far
and above the greatest rieldlng feature of
the contest. Such a catch is only seen at
long Intervalb on a bull ground.
Claucey, who has hair to spare in great
big chunks, pitched the Mrst five innings
and tnen retired In favor of Baeh, aTeutouic
lad with a white head-covering, an arm
like a blacksmith, and whose name is
pronounced like the beverage very popular
with the thirsty people Just at this time.
Clancey was liberal with bases on balls,
but with one or two exceptions be kept
the Senators Trout getting continuously
familiar with his curves. Bach was aluo
troublesome to the big leaguers and kept
them on their toes all the time.
Manager Schinelz gave a quartet of his
twirlers exerilsc, Mercer, McJames, Ashe,
and Norton facing the collegians In the
order named. McJames had trouble in
locating the plate. Four wild pitches are
recorded against him iu the two innings
lie essayed the discomfiture of the opposl -tion.
The 'Varsity, with their Usual habit,
pounded the leather at a lively clip, and
neither of the Senatorial twirlers escaped
without several scratches.
Lush had a lame leg, the result of
tangling up with a base strap in Tuesday's
game, anil m the fourth retired, and Abbey
covered right field. .McGuire caught four
innings, and Farrell finished. DeMontre
ville was succeeded by Wngieyin the fiist
half or the ninth.
Rcilly was in a run-getting humor and
nccepteil five chances very neatly at tlie
third corner. Charley also landed on the
Spaulding lor a clear three-bagger in the
The wind tempered itself to the oc
casion, and the audience enjoyed the
game without suffering the discomfort of
Tuesday. The crowd was almost as
large as that which witnessed the initial
contest between the clubs Monday, and
the Georgetown contingent, if possible,
were more partisan and demonstrative
than on the first day. They rooted hard
and long, and brought to their aid bugles,
bassoons and other contrivances calcu
lated to disrupt the hearing and jar the
President "Nick" Young couldn't hold
out any longer and hied himself to the
grand stand, Where lie occupied an
"orchestra" seat and gazed attentively
upon the performance in the field.
Father. McTammany, treasurer of the
university, was also a distinguished visi
tor. He selected a k cation bnck or the
Georgetown players' bench, but was forced
to shirtntnn early stage owing ton pen
chant foul balls had of hunting him up
and bombarding his anatomy. The gcod
gentleman stood a couple of shots, and
chen esteeming discretion thebetter partof
valor, moved camp and sequestered him
self behind tlie big wire screen.
