Cnpt. Brown and Capt. Joyce, two vet
erans of the diamond, consulted yesterday
afternoon at National Turk and concluded
that it would be best for old joints, weak
arms and Charley horses not to play on
wet grounds and in the damp air. Ilrob
ably it was a wise conclusion fiom tLcir
standpoint, because it would scarcely pay
either team to run any risk in playing In
the rain. The veterans on the New YcrUs
need all the. warm weather they can get,
and the youngsters on the Senators also
need the sunshine for their benefit. Um
pire Lynch was also a factor, for he told
them that if they began the game In the
rain they would have to finish It. But
they did not guess the weather a blr,
as it turtle J out to be a fine day.
As a result of the agreement there will
be two ,;ames this afterncon, the first
of which will be called at 2:30 p. m. and
the second soon after the completion or
the first. These will be royal battles.
The Giants will struggle to increase their
present percentage, while the Senators
will endeavor to get closer to the Quakers,
who this morning arc only 27 points aw ty
and are plajing a superior club.
Joyce will work Rutie and Mcekin this
afternoon and King and McJatucs will
twirl for the home team. The playing of
two games will draw a large crowd, and
Joyce will then know Just how the public
Is rooting for the Senators.
Had the game been played yesterday
Wrigley would Lave covered the short
field, as DeMontrcville Is suffering with a
wre ankle. It is not known whether he
will be able to play today, but the chances
are that he will be sufficiently healthy
and strong to do himself proud in his usu ll
position. Both King and "McJames are in
fit fhape, and as the Senators ate batting
like fiends the appearance of Itusie and
Meekln docf- not scare any one.
The day's rest will be of much benefit
to Tucker, and he no doubt doctored
his injured hand, and by this tin.e has
it in fair condition. Selbach's ankle is
not in the best of shape, and he, too,
will be benefited by the lay-off.
The appearance yesterday of Tom Brown
and Bill Joyce in similar positions on
the ball teams was of more than ordi
nary interest. They both played tinder
Schmelz. Joyce was really forced off
the Senators because of the discord be
tween him and Gus Schmelz. He was
traded to New York, and at once be
came one of the most promiuenUnanager
captains in the League; and today he
cuts quite a figure among the bright
lights on the diamond. Joyce weut a
year ago, or thereabouts.
Yesterday he grasped the hand of Tom
Brown, the successor of Gub Schmelz hi
a large degree, and what he said to
hira the genuine rooters can imagine
The two men confabbed, and each have
won distinction without the aid of a
non-playing manager. Joyce has a year's
start on Brown, hut If the latter con
tinues to get good work out of bib
men, he will one of these days be a
big star among the high men in the

The Drawing for Positions Gives
'Cornell the Outside Coarse.
Poughkeepsle, TT.Y., June 24. The
three crewn which are to do battle to-mc-rtow
all went out on the river this
morning. Harvard got into her shell and
rowed one mile up the river and back.
Coach Lehraann followed them on his
launch. The boys started out with a
stroke of thirty and then hit up to thirty
two. The oarsmen wanted to raise it
btill higher, but every time they tried
it Mr. Lehmann .objected. After Mr.
Lehmuun returned to cpiarters he had this
to say of Harvard's chances for tomorrow:
"The crew Is In the pink of condition and
Is very plucky and enthusiastic The oars
men arc In a condition to uphold the
credit ot Harvard."
Yale's 'varsity crew went out at 10:30
o'clock and practiced for half an hour.
Bob Cook took them tip the river for half
a mile under the lee of the'west shore, then
crossed and brought them down to their
quartern on the eastside. He did not work
them hard, but paid attention to the
work in the btern of the boat. Therein a
break between No. 4 and No. 2 in the
Yale shell and Mr. Cook is trying to
heal It. Cornell was also out this morning.
There is a wild race for tips on the
result of the great race tomorrow, but
the nearest upproach to conviction on the
part ot any of the experts Is that Cornell
will finish in third place. The talk is
that tlie crew has gone stale, and that
Splllman, especially, Is doing very poor
work. He favors in practice his lame
wrist, and In doing bo, skips strokes.
Courtney had the 'varsity crew out tonighs
practicing stretches, paced by a mixed
crew ot substitutes and freshmen.
The 'varsity rowed raggedly, but thlB
may all disappear in tomorrow's races.
Courtney was seen at the boathouse, but
he looked glum and had nothing to say.
Fred White raid that Briggs will stroke
the crew tomorrow.
Bob Cook Is around the Nelson House to
night, but had nothing to say about Yale's
Columbia rowed eight miles this morn
ing, going below the boathouse and back.
Thlf afternoon tho crew came to town and
were submitted to a medical examination.
As a result of It, Shattuck and Longacre
are out of tho 'varsity boat for good.
Longacre has a trouble ot long standing
awl Shattuck has strained the muscles of
his back. Oddle has taken Sliattuck's
place, and Elmer Longacrc's. The three
Pennsylvania crews went up the river for
their practice this morning . At the Ice
house the crews started on equal terms
and rowed a hard race to the bridge.
The two shells shipped a great deal ot
Of the many stories going the rounds
one of tLe most confusing is that "Ward

declared that Yale would win tomorrow.
This story is vouched for by a responsible
Tiie drawing lor roFitlons ton'cfht gave
Cornell the outside course, Harvard the
middle, and Yale the Inside, or course

place as yesterday, and Yale and Cornell

There was a copious shower ot tears
in Baltimore, last evening, when tho
news or the Boston-Orioles game reached
the Monumental City.
Roger Ccunor has left the Fall River
team, of which he was captain and man
ager. He will play first base for Giaud

Boston and Baltimore are having a bit
ter battle. The first thing they know they
will run themselves off their feet, and
some ot the "trailers" will come up and
beat them out.
Three games out of four from theCl2e
lauds, followed by three out ot four from
the Baltimores, is a record which the
Giants have notmadein a long time. They
open In Washington today, whera they
will play four games.
Nick Young has decided to employ no
more umpires who have not had experi
ence in minor leagues. It would not be a
bad idea to send seeral of the present
staff to minor leagues to get a l.ttle more
experience. New York Journal.
President Hait, of Chicago, docs not be
lieve that Baltimore will again win the
pennant. "I do not think," eaid the Chi
cago magnate recently, "that Hanlon's
team can finish betterthan third. They arc
too weak In the pitching department to
hold either New York or Boston, and I feel
sure that both these clubs will lead the
Orioles nt the finish. Cincinnati, too, is
well in the running and may overtake
Baltimore before the season is over."
"Mike" Sullivan, the Giants' twliler. is
the rolling stone of the League. He began
his career in 1SS8 with Washington.
Since then the Bostoa lawyer had worn
almost every uniform in the League.
In 1890 he pitched for Chicago, and then
followed Boston, Baltimore, Cleveland,
Cincinnati and St. Louis. He has had
two engagements with Washington and
two with New York. Despite ins long
service the big fellow's arm has lost none
of its cunning, and the last Cleveland
game proved him to be one of the best
pitchers in the business.
The New York Evening Telegram says:
Once more were lovers of baseball In this
city shocked yesterday when the news
came that the New Yorks had again de
feated the champion Baltimores. It was
an agreeable shock one that thrilled the
nerves with joy. Three victories out of
four games played with such a strong team
as the Orioles is a record which local
cranks can shout over for many days to
come. Baltimore patrons of the game, who
have never had any love for the Giants,
turned about yesterday and cheered
Joyce and his men, recognizing, as they
did, that the players from Gotham had
outclassed their pets in three of the four
games played. It was, indeed, a great
triumph fur the New Yorks. It was War
nci's forty-first game of the season be
hind the bat, which Is the catching record
of 1897. He kept up his heavy batting by
making three hit?. By their victory yester
day the Giants enabled the Dnstons- to
agnin take the lead in the race for the
LETTERS FROM TIMESREADERS
Mr. Love's Case.
To the Editor of The Times:
In your columns I read of the con
viction of Merchant Love in the police
court for scorching. It appears that the
word of the police otticer was of higher
character and stood him in better stead
than the oath of a reputable citizen.
Upon what rule of law or evidence such a
ruling can be sustained, I cannot imagine.
Usually it takes one witness and cor
roborating circumstances, or two or more
witnesses, to overcome the testimony of a
defendant. It 1b also a rule of law that
the burden of proof is on the plaintiff,
tho District of Columbia in this case.
I do not desire to impeach the correctness
of the officer's statement, but It Is Just
as possible for an officer to be mistaken
as any one else, and where a eittoen cf
good standing makes a statement to a
com 5 that he was keeping within the law,
and there is but one witness to prove
him incorrect, It seems to me the court
would be justified in dismissing tho case
with a word of caution. That the of
ficers are right In a very great number
of cases Isapparentfromthefactthatinany
persons forfeit collateral, but that is also
a strong reason why a man would not
come to trial, unless honestly of the
opinion that he was in the right" It is
reasonable to predict that the court of
appeals would not sustain such a finding.
Itia also true that if one pcrsoncan swear
away the rights of the citizen lna"scoroh
ing cose," the same rule could be appplled
to others of more serious character.

a white man deliberately put out his foot
and tripped one of them, which resulted
in her beiug thrown almost to the floor

for his indecent aud outrageous act and
when the girl remonstrated with him he,'
