LAFAYETTE LOST THE GAME
Georgetown Outbatted the Visitors
Nearly Two to One.

an Almost Errorless Game.
Tliere AviU not tc many better plajod
and certainly no more hoUy contested
games on Georgetown Field this bcauon
than the one of yesterdaj , In which the
Georgetown 'Varsity defeated Lafajette
College, the ecorc standing T to 4. The
score last jear over the bame team was
6 to 4. It wata pitchers' battle. In which
the great Kevins came out second best to
Walsh, or the "blue and giay." The latter
Horn the very lirst bah pitched, bcemed
"to have his arm ."and he held it through
out the full nine innings. To hold the
great hitting team of Lafayette down to
seven hits, most of them scratches, and
ttriklug out five of them, and only giving
two passes to first, is certainly a recoiU
to be proud of.
Georgetown ncgoUated for twelve hits
and it. like Lafayette, ischniged with only
The victory of Georgetown is all the
more a creditable one on account of the
crippled condition of the team. Dawson
is still out of the game, and Capt. Mc
Carthy is suffering from a sprained leg and
-was on the side lines eager every minute
to get into the game, and llaloncy, the
plucky little catcher, took in Walsh's hot
Shot with a very badly split right hand.
Maloney led tiic batting with three pretty
lilts, two of them long drives for three
bags, and lie also made three of the
6even runB. Walsh, in addition to his
Ticlding and pitching, assisted in winning
the game with a clean two-bagger and a
einglo, and a clever sacrifice.
Big Mike Mahoney, who now has the
local boys in hand, rendered valuable
6crvices in coaching his players, and he
and Reardon, who was captain yesterday,
liad the men well Jn hand, and fast.snappy
llvo ball was the result.
Georgetown took first turn at the bat,
and Kevins generously gave Kelly, first
man up, hi6 base on balls, and he stole
Eccond, and almost immediately after
scored on Fleming's hit over second. Rear
don fouled out, and on Lamb's pretty
drive to right for two stations, Fleming
scored. Smith and Mclntyre were eay
outs. These two runs promptly put up
the blue and gray stock, and the old war
liorses on the bland and in the side lines
scented -victory for "our side." and they
"scented" well, as already told.
Reese, the first up for Lafayette, was an
easy out from Fleming to Tracy, and then
Walbridgo lauded the second ball pitched
to the road for three bases and scored on
Bray's hit to left. Barclay struck out and
Sigman landed safely, but Kevins was out
on Mclntyre's pick up and throw to Tracy.
Score, 2 to 1.
The second inning was begunwith hope
and confidence, and two scores were added
on Maloney's single past Walbrldge aud
Ins steal and then to third on SValsh's
sacrifice. Kelley was given a pass and he
and Maloney scored on Fleming's single
and Reardon's bcratch past first.
I Lauer put a hot one near Walsh, which
was well fielded, but in his anxiety to
complete the play the gallant pitch ir
threw wild to Tracy, and ere the ball
was recovered Lauer was on third, from
-whence he scored on Jones' long fly und
but to Smith. Score, 4 to 2.
I Neither side scored in the third and
fnnrr.h innine-s and only six men a bide
laced the respective pitchers.
I The fifth gave Georgetown one more on
Fleming's pretty bunt, about six inches in
'front of the plate, and Reardon's single
'and Smith's out, from Sigman to Luuer
scored Elcmiug. In the same inning
'Xarayettc came within an ace of lying
the score, and that after Jones and Reese
bad fanned out in order. Walbndge regis
tered his second three-bagger over Lamb's
bead and scored on Maloney" passed ball.
Barclay hit safely over Reardon's head and
scored on Bray's pretty llnerto deep center.
Bcore. 5 to 4.
After this inning Lafayette failed to
get a man farther around than third, while
Georgetown put in two scores more Just
for good measure, oue each in the sixth
nd eighth Innings.
. The one in the sixth was made by Ma
"loncy on his terrific hit to deep center lor
three bags, scoring on Walsh's aecond
bit over first.
The seventh and ninth were blanks for
the blue and gray, but they bcoied once in
the eighth on Maloney's second threc
bagger and his ttiird lilt, and immediately

between the girls of the Eastern and Central

played yesterday morning at Carroll Insti

the Central girls were concerned, they
having commenced the contest with the

The fans are hoping thatold "Hard Luck"

this season to put salt on the tails of
their togas, and from their showing against
the Athletics yesterday the few who wit
nessed the game feel as if the leaguers
are going to cutout a lively pace against
The Wagnerians played an errorless game
and put into execution such pleasing plays
as "dumping the ball," base stealing, and
hitting und running. Such tactics win
games and win pennants.
The fact that the Athletics are a snappy
aggregation of minor leaguers, who are
In the push all the time, icnects the more
credit on the Senators. As between the
Philadelphtans and the Nbrfolks, who ic
cently appeared at National Park, it would
seem that the former have a shade the
advantage of the Virginians, but rot
enough to make a strong comparison, and
it should be a close race between them for
the Atlantic League flag, esteeming that
the other clubs arc not superior.
Though tne Athletics have been at prac
tice at the League park in Philadelphia,
yesterday wnb the first time the team had
lined up in regular play this season. They
had no trouble in getting together, ns the
majority of the men have been associated
for the past three seasons. During that
period they won two pennunts and fin

iiie visitors blanked the big leaguer.-) in
the rirst inning and held the lead until the
fifth, the score standing 2 to I in their
favor when the Seuators came In for their
crack at the ball. Then the run-getting
commenced. Five hits and a seri-is of
stolen bases placed five of Capt. Brown's
men across the plate, and the game became
Washington's property without the shadow
of a doubt.
In this inning a couple of pretty double
steals were executed by Capt. Brown and
Charley Rellly In one Instanre and by Ai
bey and Lush a few minutes later. The
other feature of the inning was a beautiful
scientific bunt by Lush. Billy dumped the
ball to the left of the plate and was safe
on first when it was picked up by the

"sure death' on every chance offeied him.
"Zeke'' singled In the fifth and tallied on
Selbach's hard drive to left center. In
the seventh he tried to score on Selbach's
long fly to left, but was caught at the
plnte as he came plowing In head first. As
a slider "Zeke'' Is a regular "chute the
chute,'" but he should be more careful In
his base running.
In the third Capt. Brown and Rellly made
difficult catches of flies to their territory
and in the fifth Lush ran through the mud

treme right field.
Kimble pitched five Innings, he and Far

becomes more and more apparent every
day. He is certainly playing the game
of his life this season.

J. HART BRITTAIN,
Local Manager, 452 Pa. Ave., Washington, D. C,
Dear Sir: As the season advances we find the demand increasing- beyond our ex
pectations for the $50 Hartford bicycle. We were prepared to make a good many of them,
but it is too late now to increase our facilities, for, by the time we had done so, the trade
would slack off. We have, therefore, decided to adopt heroic measures- The Hartford
bicycles at $75 are the best value for the money that there is on the market; we believe
they are equal to any bicycles made, except the Columbia. We are proud of them, but
the demand seems to be more largely for the Columbia and the $50 bicycle; therefore, in
order to relieve the demand for the $50 Hartford we have determined to reduce the price
of the $75 Hartford to $60, and of Patterns Nos. 9 and 10 to $55, knowing that there are
no other bicycles on the market, except the Columbia, for which one will receive so much
value for the mouej'. We believe that a large number of the buyers of the $50 Hartfords
will see it for their interest to strain a point and put out $10 more to obtain one of these
valuable machines. They ought not to be sold at less than $75, and would not be if we had
enough l's and 2's to meet the demand. This is an opportunity which the economical
buj'er cannot overlook, if it is properly put before them.
The new price will go into effect on the 12th instant.
Of course we believe that a person who has money enough will be better satisfied
to buy a Columbia and have that nameplate on his bicycle than to buy any other.

malnder of his life. After a thorough
Inspection with the librarian of the fear
fully overcrowded condition of the Library
in its present quarters in the Capitol, he
made a powerful and graphic speech in
the Senate nearly twenty years ago.tctting
forth the facts and the necessities of the
case. This speech made a grcatimpresdion
on his colleagues in the Senate. It was
one of the first that he made in that body.
They gathered around him as he spoke,
listening earnestly to every word that
came from his lips uad afterward he was
congratulated by them all, Including the
eloquent Mr. Blaine.
Prom that time on he was untiring in his
efforts toward securing prompt and ef
ficicntr action by Congress to remedy the
evil by building an edifice adequate for Ihc
accumulation of the nation's books. To
gether with Senator Morrill of Vermont, he
took the leading part in selecting and ap
proving the plans ulumately carried out.
It may certainly be said that the Con
gressional Library building 13 due to Sena
tor Vorhees' efforts more than to anything
else. It is probable that it would not have
been completed for many years except for
his untiring persistence in urging Con
gress forward, and it is also probable
that the building would not have been Mich
a perfect one, bo adequate and complete in
every way, a building for mote than a hun
dred years, except for him.
"Librarian Spofford, who was on in
timately friendly terms with Mr. Voor
hees from the time he first cumc to Wash
ington, in 18G1, spoke of him thus to a
Times reporter yesterday,
"Senator Voorhecs has been notable
since his first service In the House of
Representatives, In the Thirty-seventh Con
gress, for his Intellectual vigor and inter
est In all political subjects brought for
ward, drawing liberally upon the stores
of the Library for facts, arguments, and Il
lustrations. He was especially interested
In historical and geographical literature,
and had from early years a strong fond
ness for what may be termed the art ot
public speaking. His favorite writers -were
the models of rhetoric, and he never tired
of Maoauley and other noted British es
sayists, whose genius contributed to form
his lorclhle and effective style of speaking.
Senator Voorhees spent the lost few
months of his life in Washington. Of his
daily life during this time his Intimate
friend and colleague, Senator Turple, has
kindly given this account:
"Mr. Voorhees left his home in Terre
Haute two days before the commencement
of the last session of the Fifty-fourth
Congress. He traveled with me to Wash
ington, I joining him at Indianapolis.
He was in feeble health and was yetunder
the care of his physician, though very
much better than he had been during the
Bummer and fall preceding. He spoke
very freely of the business of Congress
in the session -which was about to com
mence, and seemed to take even more
lie feared, however, that he would not
bo able to take his usual part in the
than usual interest in public transactions,
active business of the Senate.
"This proved to be true, for he attended
the Senate but little after that When
he did attend he remained only an hour
or two. Mr Voorhecs did considerable
work in committee In consideration of
matters pertaining to the Library and on
private bills in which the citizens of In
diana were Interested His health Im
proved, but slowly, during the winter
"Since the 1st of March he had been
subject to quite frequent attacks, acute
and painful, and yet he appeared to be
gaining strength. His spirits also, al
ways very cheerful, had almost wholly
resumed their customary tone of hope and
encouragement. During the session and
6ince the adjournment he had been quite
busily engaged in preparing lectures for
public delivery. He spoke always In a
very animated manner respecting his
campaign to be made on tne lecture plat
form. He had selected for subjects very
attractive themes, and employed himself
in reading and meditation for the par
pose of composition.
"I heard him read only last Monday
afternoon an extract from one of these
discourses in the most excellent manner,
with full voice and elegant rhythm. On
the Wednesday evening before he died I
passed two hours In his rooms at his resi
dence in very cheerful conversation, oc
casionally broken with his momentary suf
fering from his illness. Yet he seemed to
recover from these pains and appeared to
be as full of expectation for the futura
and hope of successful labor In the field
he had chosen as I have ever observed him.
"I spent three hours with him at the
new Library building on one occasion
since the adjournment of Congress, only
a few days ago, In fact. We made a very
thorough survey of the whole building.
He told me In conversation during this
visit that he thoucht he micht Justlr
claim to be one of the founders and authors
of the new edifice and system, and that
he felt his hopes had been realized and
the whole country and the civilized world
might be congratulated for that splendid
residence, which had been erected in this
republic, as the dwelling place for the
harvest of thought, all that is already
gathered and stored, and all that may In
the future be deemed worthy of being
deposited for safety and preservation. In
that grand edifice."
He was busily engaged with his lecture,
"The Public Men of My Own Times," all
these last days, and it is completed, with
the exception of two or three pages.
Fifty-nine pages are corrected aad revised,
and as he wished them This lecture con
tains a glowing tribute to the Uvea of two
other great men ot his time. Lincoln and
Grant. Those who have seen the manu
script, and they are very few, prononnceit
one of the greatest, if not the greatest,
effort of his life- He was most careful
In its preparation, using references freely.
After the rough draft was completed he
went over it again carefully, making many
alterations. The pictures of Lincoln aud
Grant are complete.

Isadore Ephriam, a prosperous clothing
merchant, of San Antonio, Texas, was lured
Into the park between Fifteenth btrcetand
the White Lot, by two white men, on pre
tense of directing him to his bonrdliiir
place, and then sandbagged and robbed
him or his gold watch, a drart for $50,
a Masonic emblem, and $40 in money,
about 10 o'clock last night.
Mr. Ephriam arrived hi Washington yes
terday afternoon on his way to New York
city, on a business trip. Thinking to re
main a few days in this city, for the pur
pose of sightseeing, he procured a room
at a hoarding-house, No. 916 Fifteenth
street northwest. Last night after daTk
he went out alone to stroll about the
btreets and walked ui- and down the
Avenue until nearly 10 o'clock.
Being unfamiliar with the city, when he
conic to start for his lodging place he
discovered that he liad lost his bearings
and was unable to find the way. Near
Fourtecuth btreet and Pennsylvania ave
nue he approached two fairly well dressed
men who were standing talking upon the
sidewalk, and politely requested them
to direct him to No. 916 Fifteenth street
"Come with us, wo are golnj; right past
there, aud we will show you," said one
or the men. With that the three walked
along the Avenue to Fifteenth street, and
there turned down toward the Monument.
The men convBScj pleasantly und the
Texan suspicioncd" tiothing wrong.
After walking -about two squares Mr.
Ephriam asked IfWejr were sure they were
going in the right direction, and upon be
ing assured that ftiev were lie continued,
and entered the pfiftk, thinking that he
was making a short? cut.
Upon reaching an isolated spot near C
street one of thcyjnen' quickly turned about
and struck the merchant a stunning blow
upon the forehendtth a blunt weapon,
thought to have'bqpn a sandbag. He was
stunned and felljjtOjthe ground, whereupon
the robbers qufckly rifled his pockets.
They then fledJ?rfjljItlly in the darkness,
and as soon as Mr. Ephriam was able to
lecover himself he'shouted aloud for help.
His cries brought to his nsslsfcnncu Mr.
Shlnn, a lumber merchant, who was Just
leaving his off iceon Fifteenth street. With
Mr. Shlnn's assistance the injured man
managed to reach the Emergency Hos
pital, about one block distant, where his
wounds were dressed by Drs Turner,
Hooe and O 'Conner.
Mr. Ephriam Is a one-armed man and
was consequently helpless to ward off the
blows of the thieves. He was sent to a
ward, and Policemen Flather, Schuyler
and Kilmartln started out to rua down the
Mr. Ephriam was. able to give a good
description of the men, but aside from
this there iff no other clue for the offi
cers to work upon. Mr. Ephrlam's condi
tion is not dangerous, but he will be con
lined at the hospital for several daya.
