Boston, Aug. 18. A long string of zeros
vas marked up against Washington In the
game with Boston at the South End this
afternoon. Nothing but bloukety-blankety-blank
verse resulted in thslr vain efforts to
find Collegian Lewis, who officiated in the
best game of the season. Bat three paltry
tingles weie made by the visitors, and ons
of these was a mere scratch.
Opposing the Amherst boy was "Winfield
Mercer, who was raised in this section, as
It was from the precincts of the Bay
State that Mercer found ills way into the
major league He lias always been ef
fective in thl! city, but this afternoon his
old-tfnie cunning seems to have left him.
Bis support was not the best, as Wrigley,
O'Brien and Abbey were responsible for
three f the Boston runs. Al Selbach
mude rv;o of the Washington hits, getting
a double in the third, and beating out a
till to Collins In the eighth Inning. The
Lome team played a great fielding game,
and up to the eighth inning not a Wash
ington player reached third base.
As a parting salute to Tom Tucker his
Boston admirers presented him with a mag
nificent diamond pin. The only 'Tuck'
was so enthused with the gift that he al
most forgot he was in the game-
For the first three innings Mercer had
matter Ms own way. He served Boston
ufter the thitd with the slow, coaxing ball
of winch he has great control, and it did
not take long to pile up fifteen singles.
The nearest Washington came to scoring
was in the eighth inning. Selbach opened
the im.mg with a single to Collin. Brown
drew a base on balls. DeMontreville, the
next littler, planted one way down in left
field. Selbach, thinking the ball was sare,
ttartedfor theplate. Duffymadeamagnifi
cent Cfrtt'h. and before Selbach could return
to second lip was thrown out. The bases
were Tilled l.iur, as Lowe fumbled Mc
Giilre's grounder and .Lewis hit Tucker.
"With this chance to save a shut-out, O'Brien
hit a weak groundei to Lowe, which re
tlr-d the side
The fir.t of Boston's scoring began In
the second inning. Duffy started with n.
rindc and readied second on Long's sac
n!1ce. Lowe hit a fly straight into Tom
Brown's hand1;, but tile Washington captain
was too anxious t, hold Durfy at third
and dropped the ball. Later Lowc madea
HufT steal for second. McGuire-thrcw to
ratch him and O'Brien in returning the ball
threw wild, which scored Duffy with
the first run.
No runs were made after this until
tie last, halt of lAc fifth. It was in this
inning "Win" Mercer Wat, hit the hard
est. AUr Tenuey had filed out to Do
Mintreville Long was caught on the wrist
with a swift inshoot which forced his re
tuoment. Long was dazed for a moment
and everyone thought the ball hit him
In tin temple. A physician was called
and it whs round that some of the small
"bones in tne wrist were broken. Stlvetw
was put in to run and Allen tcok Lis
place in the field. Stahl hit to deep right
for a bast-- Abbey let the ball get away
fiein him, which scored Stiretts. Hits
followed In sttc-cesslon by Duffy, Collins
and Lowe, which, netted four runs In the
Two more runs wore scored in the
Kixth. Wrigley let Hamilton's grounder
get into tti outfield. Tenuey singled to
right, and a safe drive of Stahl to center
scored two runs. The home team -was
b'anked In the Eeventh, and tcored the
Jpst run after two men were out in the
elgh'.h. AUn hit safely, a fumble by
Wrisriey and Duffy'e third hit sent Allen
Manj thought the Senators would rally
in the ninth as they did on Tuesday.
A Belinblc Hemedy.
The object of opium in medicine is to
deaden and paralyze the nerves tempor
ariall j to stop coughing or pain. Noth
ing promotes the opium or morphine
habit so much as cough mixtures that
contain this nefarious drug. Brazilian
Balm does not contain a trace of it, but
is a true balsam that removes the cause
0f the trouble. Mr. W. T. Barber, 1001
N.43d St., Philadelphia, Pa., says: "Bra
ziliiaa Balm not only quickly removed
all trace of my cold but had a generally
reviving effect upon my whole system
which has been permanent. I recom
mend it as a most -valuable and thor
oughly reliable remedy."
After Abbey had flied to Hamilton.
Wriclpy was safe on Allen's -wild throw,
getting as far as second "Duke" Farrell
came to the bat in place of Mercer, but
'was retired at first, and Selbach ended
the game on a fly to Duffy.
The Burton management tonight sold
tl.e release of catcher Yeager to Provi
dence of the Eaftern League. Manager
Billy Murray, of Providence, was at the
game, and is trying to arrange a deal for
one of Boston's pitchers. The score:

CHANCES OF THE SENATORS
A Condition and Not a Theory
JloJnmcs Said to Have Been Sold
to the Bostons for Outfielder
and a Cash Consideration.
The riddle propounded to Oedipus by the
Sphinx was not In it with the pioblcm
us to what position the Washington Base
ball Club will wind up the pmeiit season
in, nor is it the purpose of this article
to attempt the sclutionot the proposition.
A little gossip as to the possibilities of
the situation may not, however, be amiss.
The fact that numerous theories have
been advanced, only to be knocked Into
a cocked hat, is neither here nor there.
As a well-known New Yorker once re
marked, "Hitting the ball at the right
time ie what wins games;" so the Sena
tors at the present time llnd themselves
confronted with a condition, not a theory.
That Lite Senatorial tongerles can play
the game according to Hoyle, their win
ning streaks that shine forth with the
beauty of a rainbow bear witness. On
the other hand, chrome-colored work has
been handed out in chunks ut times, the
result being u falling off in percent
age for the team and a corresponding fall
ing off in the hopes of the fans that their
lepitsentativcs on the dlumond would oc
cupy a snug berth In the first division.
However, now that all thoughts of a
first dlvibiou position have been laid aside
the question suggests itself, was it not
too much to expect of thti team? The club
is practically the same as last year, and
w Idle it can play very good ball it wus
hardly reaso"able to supisose it could per
form the feat of jumping into the first
division without having been strengthened.
Since returning from the last Western
trip the Senators have braced up wonder
fully and it Is yet possible for them, by
keeping up the good work, to climb to
near the top of the second division, which
would be a creditable showing for th
season after all.
A itng stretch of games on the homo
grounds will begin this afternoon with
the Wesn-in teams, most of which are
considerably weaker than the Statesmen,
three of them being less than 100 points
away, and it only remains for the lionm
team to continue the good work of which
theyure capable, a-nd they will bid eleventh
place gcod by, It is hoped, forever, as it
will then be possible to strengthen the
team by the addition of new players, and
then make a try for that long-sought
goal, the first division, with greuter pros
pects of lauding there.
There is talk among the ball players of
the Washington team that McJames has
been sold to the Boston club for a cash
fnusideratlon and an outfielder. Be this as
it may, the home club will not bo weak
ened very much, and the chances are noU
at all. The new twirlers algned can easily
fill his shoes, nnd perhaps land the States
men further up the list In the League race.
DTJHYEA DEFEATS S1SSON.
Tho Veteran Croquet Crack Falls
Before the WuHhlnirtou Iiui.
Norwich, Conn., Aug. 18. Heavy rains
this afternoon interfered somewhat with
the enquet tournament here. Some in
teresting games were played. Young
Duryea, the boy player from Washington,
beat the veteran Sisson in the closest
and most Interesting game ever played
on the grounds here since the national as
sociation was founded, In 1882.
The other boy player, Bird, of Baltimore,
distinguished himself, beating Wahly, of
Washington, one of the best men in the
country, with ridiculous ease.
Wreotlingr nnd Boxing.
The athletic committee of the Washing
ton Athletic Club is busy preparing for
tne big smoker to be given ut their spurious
clubhouse tomorrow night. They have se
curedsomeof the best loxing and wrestling
talent in the District, for that occasion.
Chief among the events will be the wrest
ling bout, for the championship of the Dis
trict, between R. Roy Mackey, or the W.
A. C, and Samuel Eurton.or Philadelphia.
This match is creating qulbj a btlr, as
both men are heavily bncVrtl by their
rrlends, with odds on Mackey. In addi
tion tv the events alove named, there
will be three three-round boxing exhibi
tions and two six-mitrate wrestling exhi
bitions Tne match 'jetween Burton and
Mackey will be to a finish.
Duty on Silk Ribbons.
The Treasury Department has ruled that
silk ribbons are dutiable under the new
tarirf at 50 percent ad valorem, as manu
factures of silk, and that they arernot
dutiable as trimmings at GO per cent.
This is the first instance in which the
lower rate of duty has been fixed. The
dispute arose between the collector and
purveyor at the port or New York, the
collector maintaining that ribbons were
trimmings, and'thcrefore came under the
rate or GO per cent. The 4bame contro
versy arose under previous tarirf laws,
and involves very large amounts of money.

!. GEORGE WATTS. DEAD
The Woll-Known Telegrapher Is
Stricken With Apoplexy.
Seized With Hluess In HIh Apart
ments and Expired Before a
Physician Could Reach Him.
Mr. GeoTgeWatts.a well-known telegraph
operator, was stricken with apoplexj lust
evening at 6:50 o'clock in his apartments
uttheEiktonllotelanddieda few minutes
after 8 o'clock.
Mr Walts had been feeling badly since
Suuday but none of his friends had any
fears of his illness icsultlng fatally. Iu
fact, his condition was such that neither
he nor hla friends thought it necessary
to call in a physician. He had rested quietly
during tbe early part of the day and In the
nfternoon he decided to get up for awhile.
When l.o got out of his bed, however,
hj found that Ills strength was failing him
and called fcr help. Mr. Henry 0. Wooden
was the first to respond. He found Mr.
Watts lying on the floor In an unconscious
condition. Mr. Wooden called Mr. Martin
Kaln. another friend of the sick mun, and
together they placed Mr. Watts on hid bed.
Mr. Kain then hurried to call a physician,
but it was some time before one could bo.
found, and then Dr. Bailey responded, but
arrived only a few moments before Mr.
Dr. Bailey gave certificate of death from
apoplexy, and the coroner was notified.
Mr. Watts was recounized as an exnarr.
In his profession. He was well and favor
ably known in this city, having been, for
the last two years, in the emnlov of th
Postal Telegraph Company, at the main
office, near Pennsylvania avenue and Four
teenth street. He had for many years
served the Western Union Company as
Mr. Watts was born in Providence, R. I.,
but left that city shortly arter lie reached
his majority. He leaves a wife, but no
children. Mrs. Watts is at prcseut out of
the city, visiting Mr. Watts' father at
Providence. Mrs. Watts and other rela
tives were notified last night by telegraph
of the sudden death of Mr. Watts.
It is not probable that an inquest will
bo held, as Coroner Dr. Carr viewed the
remains and concurred with Dr. Bailey
as to the cause of death. The remains
will be sent to Bee's undertaking estab
lishment where they will be embalmed
and then sent to Providence, R. I., for

AMONG THE WORKMEN
Stone Work on the Chicago Post
office Disturbing Labor Unions.
Disruption of Friendly Relations
Between Two Organizations
It is quite probable that matters con
nected with the bulldlngor the Chicago post
office may lead to a disruption of tho
friendly relations existing between the
stonecutters' and granite cutters' national
organizations. Both these bodies, through
their local unions in Chicugo, are keeping
a watchrul eye on every detail pertaining
to the construction or the building, and
from the presentoutlook.no matter what
influence prevails, organized labor will be
Some few days ago a committee repre
senting the Sort Stone Cutters' Union t.f
Chicago visited this city for the purpose
of having a conference with the United
States supervising architect relative to the
matter, and now it is understood that some
time during the latter part of the week a
committee representing theNatlonalGranlte
Cutters will visit tho Treasury Department
for the same purpose. Although theae two
committees are working in the interest
of organized labor, there appears to be a
wide difference in their methods of ac
complishing their object.
Thecommittee of stonecutters which was
here a few days ago announced that their
object was to persuade the supervising
architect to have all the material fcr the
nw postorflce building prepared for use
in Cook county, Ills., by union labor and
at union wages. The object of securing
such a promise from the supervising archi
tect was to prevent the powihility of the
stone to be used iu the construction of
the building from being prepared for use
on the postorrice by cheap labor at the
quarries. In reference to this the visiting
stonecutters, before leaving the city, said
they were perfectly satisfied with the re
sult of the visit. From this it would be
thought that they had received some con
cessions from the architect on the subject.
The granitecutters, however, takea very
dlfferent view of tbe situation from
that taken by the stone cutters. They
maintain that all matters relative to the
construction of the building have already
been practically settled and do not place
much faith in the announced purpose of the
visit of the Chicago stonecutters. Thegran
itecatters feel that the stoncmen have some
other object in view, but whatever it Is
the granite cutters are confident thatthey
will not be able to change or in any way
modity rne original specifications, pro
posed for the construction of the Chicago
So far as the preparation or the ma
terial for the building is concerned, the
granitecutters say that the specifications
call for granite, and that their national
union, after a month's deliberation, de
cided that all the quarrying and other work
pertaining to the construction of the build
ing should be done by union labor, at
union prices. Under this agreement the
granite cutters maintain that it matters
not where the granite is prepared for use
on the postorrice it shall be by union mju
and at unlou wages.
SHRINERS BIG EXCURSION.
Hundreds Unable to Board the
Steamer for ilnrshall Hull.
The Mystic Shriuers or Almas Temple
and their friends, numbering about 2,000
in all, captured Marshall Hall last even
ing. The occasion was the regular an
nual outing of tho local Shnners and it
proved one of the most successful and
enjoyable entertainments ot the kind given
this season .to the historic Hall.
Unfortunately, only one steamer, the
Macalester, was chartered for the accom
modation of the Shnner.s and their friends,
and as a result more than 500 prospective
excursionists were loTt on na wharf.
Capt. Blake, of the Macalester, saw the
situation and tried In every possible way to
charter another steamer to take the over
flow crowd down to the Hall, but failed.
Many ot those who went to the wharf were
determined to mako the trip even it It
were a little late, so they waited until
the River Queen made her return trip at
9 o'clock and boarded bar.
A most provoking thing about part of
the excursionists being unable to go down
ou the 6-30 boat was that part of the
talent on the program was left behind.
The program, however, was so varied and
well arrnnged that there was plenty to
entcitaln and amuse the excursionists.
Those who were unfortunately left be
hind were notforgotten and many were the
expressions of regret heard on all sides.
On the arrival of the excursionists ia tho
olty last night the management asked that
it be stated that those holding unused
tickets could have their money refunded
today on application to any of the fol
lowing gentlemen: Mr. Harrison Dlng
