The Columbian 'Varsity baseball nine
again demotistra tod its strength yesterday
by defeating the btrong team from St.
Johns College, Auuapolis, to the tune of
1G to 4.
At no stage of the contest was the re
sult in doubt, for the local bojs started in
with a run in the first inning, and batted
out runs with a regularity , which held
The pitching of Cummings for Columbian
was the particular feature of the game
The visitors were able to connect with his
swift delivery only seven times; two of
the hits being of scratch order. The gen
eral work of the local team was clean and
fast, being in decided contrast to that of
the Mao landers, who plajed lather a list
Columbian scored one In the first as a
result of Beall's base on balls and Proc
tor's rattling two-bagger. Two more w ere
added in the second by Beall's long hitto
left for three bags, bringing in Green and
Leach, who had gained their basesby gift.
The visitors scored their first run in" the
third inning. Brady gained his base by
the catcher muffing his third strike, stole
second, and on Hotchkiss' clean hit came
home with the initial run.
. In the latter halt of this inning Hillery,
for the visitors, made a sensational catch
of Proctor's apparently safe hit. St.
Johns was blanked in the first half of the
fourth, while Columbian increased her
lead by three runs.
Three more ruus were registered In the
fifth inning and St. Johns was ugain
blanked. The visitors increased their
score by one run in the sixth as a result
of Hillery being lilt by a pitched ball,
stealing second and coming home on a
Columbian made one in this inning, while
in the next four men crossed the plate
before the side waB retired.
The visitors ended their run getting in
the eighth by makiug two tallies. Hotch
kiss' corking hit to deep left went past
Proctor, and the runner took third. He
scored a moment later on Hillery's neat
hit along the right foul Hue. Hill'-ry also
tallied after a steal to second and IIil
Columbian also added two in this in
ning, which were the last of the game.

The L. A. W. Unuble to Send n
Team to Europe.
New I'orlr, April 10. The statement of
Prcsidcut Potter and Chairman Mott, of
the racing board of the L. A. W., that the
organization will be unable to stand the
expense of sending a team of American
riders abroad this year, is discouraging
to racing men. Prominent amateur and
professional riders have been hopeful that
the league would, in some manner, see its
way clear to appiopriate money to send
over a small team to compete in the w.orld's
championship races in Scotland and Ireland
The recommendation, of Chairman Mott
thatthe manufacturers shouldald the move
ment Is approved of by some of the big
firms, and generous douatlons will be made
if the L. A. W. will ask for money. It is
calculated tha6 tin costof sending a team
abroad would average from $2,000 to S2,
500 at the most.

AMONG AMATEUR ATHLETES.
On account of the frequent rains and the
almost continuous high water in the Poto
mac, the opening of the rowing season has
been retarded bcveral Weeks. As soon as
the weather settles the three local boat
clubs here, the Columbian, Aualostans and
Potoniacs, will open their boathouses for
the seabou and launch their shells for pre
liminary spins, preparatory to taking up
the season's woik. "It is proposed," says
Louis A. Fischer, formerly captain of the
Anulostans, "to make this season, so far
as we are concerned, the moat active wit
nessed hereabouts in a long time. "
The other two clubs -will no doubt also
bend their efforts to make the season a
The rowing men on the Harlem River at
New York have been rowing and getting
in shape for the May 30 regatta there, for
several weeks pat, and they do not -coin

the affair earnestly and don't let a little
thing like a bit of cool weather deter them.
If they can row so early why can not we?
and thus the sooner get into shape for the
season's campaign on the water.

The beginning of the present month
marked the opening of the local cycling
Eeaaon, and the arious cj cling clubs
are mapping out their plans for summer
rides over lull and dale.
A great majority of the club runs will,
of course, be limited to points within a
score of miles from the city, but there
is a disposition among many riders to ar
range for more extensive tours than have
hitherto been attempted These plans
have not taken definite shape as yet,
but many interesting trips will undoubt
edly be undertaken.
Nearly all the clubs have arranged a
schedule of Sunday runs Tor the present
month, and the number and enthusiasm of
those who propose to go on them testiry to
the Interest which is relt One or two
clubs have gone so Tar as to arrange a
complete schedule Tor the summer months,
but it ib generally thought that a monthly
schedule is preferable, as conditions miy
arise to prevent the carrying out of plans

are constantly coming m.
It Is generally thought that club support

A feature of the coming season among
the clubs will be the afternoon runs in
which the lady friends of the members
will participate. As a club feature this
is not a novelty, but It has never been so
generally adopted as it will be during the
coming season. Those clubs which arc
so fortunate as to possess connuodtous
homes will undoubtedly make these events
among the most pleasant of the season.
The Capital HI Club inaugurated events of
this character last year, and they proved
very attractive to both the members and
Beside the uniformed and fully organized
male cvcliug clubs of the city, there are
several clubs formed last year and early
this spring which are composed of ladies
and gentlemen Though not cxnctly'curb

organization about them, nor have they any
regular places of assembly. Their purpose
is purely pleasure, nnd when there is a

one or the members.
Clubs of this kind are likely to Increase
greatly during the coming Peason.

The cycling contingent of the club has
increased so rapidly that it exceeds in
numbers all similar organizations. Though

the number even higher. I
Some of the more enthusiastic of the

the wheels, ride from the clubhouse, down

The greatest interest is taken In the
Marshall Hall run, which has been planned
for Easter Sunday. It is the event or the

will be a big number who will make the

the twenty-nine miles will seem long to
