by his players into the notion that lie is
up-to-dotc as a plaver; in this way he lost
his influence as a strict disciplinarian, as
the Chicago club for years liab played
brilliantly one day and indifferently the
next. This President Hart has noticed,
and Is anxious for a charge.

Should Anson be retired, Tom Burns,
his able assistant or ten years ago, will

Easterns "Won Their Second Lenguo
Gnmc of Basketball.
Notwithstanding the Inclemency of the
weather last night over 200 lovers or the
sport assembled at the Lijjht Infantry
Armory and saw the Eastern Athletic
Club defest the Century Cycle Hub in a
game or basket-ball by the score of 10 lo 0.
The game was the fifth in the old Dis
t'ict Basketball League series, and was,
nol withstanding the onesidedne.ss of the
score, an interesting contest.
The game was singularly free from unnec
essary rough playing.andthefivofree throws
divided between the teams were penalties
fot close .scrimmages and holding the ball.
The Century players surprised the crowd
with their good placing and Tree passing,
which, with them ab with the Easterns,
was one or the features ot the game. The
E. A. C, as usual, put up a .strong game
and played fa-t, and the team is now one
of the best in the league.
Dunn, or the Eastern Athletic Club,
played a good game, and his goal throw
ing from field was one of the notable
features, six of the total goals being made
by him from field play, and several of
tltciij were of the difricult ouler. Ho is
bu-. two goals below the record made by
Burnett, of the W. L. I. The playing
of Ellis, Colhriowcr, Gooding, Bolger and
Varclla was noteworthy. The latter two
plajed remarkably well, considering that
this was their first game-. For the Cen
tury Club Counschiian, Abel! nnd Posey
led In fast free passing.
The E. A.C. scored twice in the first
inning on Dunn's fine throwing, and in
the second inning Dunn again landed two
field goals, nnd Varclla scored one on a
backhanded throw. About five minutes
aiter play was begun In the third, Dunn
made a goal, and two minutes after that
landed another on a difricult cross-field
throw. Ellis scored on a gift throw, and,
after passing the pigskin backward and
forward over the field, Yarella got the
ball out of a scrimmage and madea pretty
Winners, to Arrange With Columbia
A. C. Jrs. for Christmas:
Since the championship of the .District
blgt -School "was determined by the winning
of that great honor by the Eastern High
School a team has been oiganlzcd which
is composed of the best players rrotn
the Eastern and Central High Schools, and
Is to be known as tu-; Washington High
Schoo' team. The eleven must necessarily
be quite a fo.mtdable one, as the admirers
of the sportwho saw the high school g.itn'js
already know how well each school played.
Capt. Oyster and the ilt-upln boys put
up u game throughout the season which
is wcUhy of the highest praise. The
other players on the ne.v team are all
earnest, hard workers, and fill their ic
spcctUc positions "well.
The eleven is ready to play games as
long as Uie open weather labts, and has
already arianged for several contests
on the gildiron. The most Important gime
it has on hand is scheduled for next
Saturday afternoon, at National Pirk,
with the Columbia Athletic Club Juuios.
The latter team, under the capable man
agement of J. H. Cabrera, has made a
veiy excellent showing this season and
has played a very strong game against
first class school teams. Although some
what lighter than the high school team,
the juniors expect to hold their own
agab't the students, making up 'n j-iit
and ner. what they lack in weight. The
two teams may be expected to put up a
close and Inteiesting game, and the lowers
of the spoitcan look forwaid to a contest
where scieiioe and snap will predominate.
On account of the strength or the teams
it has been suggested the the winners of
next Saturday's game arrange for a- game
011 Christmas Day with the Columbian
'Varsltj team. "Because of the great
drawing power or cither of the first,n-uned
tenmo," said an old admirer ot the port
last night, "it would seem to be the w;s.st
kind ot a move, not only from an tth
leUc point of view, but rrom a financial
one as well, to pitnext Satuiday's winners
against the 'varsity. I believe it would
draw aE well or better than any game
v. e have had this season."
The C. A. C. Juniors would draw larg.-ly
from lis parent organization and the oilier
eleen,il it wins, would draw out several
thousand "looters" from among the :arge
following thev have. An effort will le

He Twisied Uie Lion's Tail.
(Prom the Chicago Ne.vs.)
The man silting on a salt barrel had a
hand on which only two finders were lert,
and sizing him up for a veteran or the war I
asked him if he hadn't been wounded by an
''No, not as I remembers ot," he replied,
as he held up his hand and turned it over
'I thought that might have been the case;
but you probably got caught in some sort
''No, not exactly machinery, sor."
"'Gun explode in your hands?"
'No; no gun didn't explode."
I gave it up at that, but after a few
minutes the man looked up ami said.
"Stranger, you've seen a lion, I reckon?"
"Seen 'era caged and looking as harmless
"Yes; tbey generally look that way."
"That's the way I sized up ono In a cage
in a circus. He lay there, looking so sleepy
and good-natured and harmless that I
thought it was a bwindle on the public
aud I'd try to rouse him a bit."
"AnO so you poked himV" I queried.
"No, sir; no pokiug. I jest calculated to
gin his tail about throe twists and make
him foel that lifo "wasn't all beer and bones
and sunshine. I waited for my chance and
then I reached my hand in. How far is it
from a lion's mouth to Uie middle of his

"1 thought it was about a rod, but I
know better now. 1 hadn't more'n got
hold of his tall when he got hold ot me

He wanted the hull hand and arm, but
they beat him off. I thought at first I
wouldn't explain matters, but then 1
thought 1 would. I look a good deal like
a fool, don't I?"
"Well, you do, and that's why I explained.
1 was fool "nutr to want to twist a lion's

The best football elevens contained so
irau y fine players tliat to select an 'Mil
America" team offhand, is a hard task,
says the New York Sun. After consider
ing all ,points of play and the personal
characteristics of the various men iihile
in action, it Is difficult to select eleven
players in their respective places who may
be called the best in America. It Is easier
to single out the three or four best men
in each place, and then discuss their -relative
Sifting the matter down, there is one
conclusion to be drawn thnt Yale and
Pennsylvania possess nearly all the btar
rush-line men. Nobody can deny that
Boyle,ol Pennsylvania, and Ilazen, ot Yale,
are the best left ends. Boyle did not
play up to form against Cornell, but his
work in all Hie other big games was o!
sucha superior quality that lie Is generally
looked upon as llazen's peer. The latter
did .not shine as a first-class man until
the game with Princeton, when he put
up some wonderrul football. Cabot, or Har
vard, -1b rated next in ability, but ho is
Jiot very far ahead ot Tracy, of Cornell,
who surprised the critics with his fast
work aguiust Pennsylvania. Cabot, a year
ago, wah considered to be the star lea
cud, but his work UUs fall was far be
low the standard, probably due to his
extra Cuties as captain.
Tlie left tackles foremost In their (lass
are Goodman, of Pennsylvania, Roclger,of
Yale, nnd Holti or Princeton. Rodgers
played superbly in the games against Har
vard and Princeton, but in the early part
or the season lie was cpiite severely handi
capped because of Illness- In gro md-gain-ing
he did better work than any 1 lan In
tlie Yaleliuc, and also performed some beau
UIul Interference. Goodman and Holt, lioth
heavier men than Rodgers, have uot rail the
experience In the plare that the Yale cap
tain has had, but they are about his equal
In ground-gaining, though not nearly so
rast on their Jet.
Hare, the big Pennsylvania freshman, is
about tlie uest left guard. altlumgh ne does
noiliafre'inuch of a margin over Chadwlok,
ot "Yale- Hure's ability to run with the
ball, though, makes himiuorecffeetivo than
the Yale, man, who did not play regularly
unUl tlie epd of the aasju. Ch.idwick never
played ' faster football, however, and his
worl: in the Princeton game made him rank
higher than he otherwise would. Rinehari,
Lafayette's giant guard, comes next, with
Bouve, of Harvardi close up. Reed, of Cor
neUf and,Crowdis. of Princeton, are about
on a 'paralthough the latter was a much
better player" a year ago.
Cadwulader, Yale's ponderous freshmu.i,
is thought by many to bi tlie star cem-r
rush in Overfield, of Pennsylvania, is a
lighter, f .an and perhaps faster, but Jad
walader possesses "vigor and staying nual-
'itfet!iat,'ince 'him Tihefrd 6t the st-ir-'y
Quaker. -"Doucette, Harvard's center, pi iy
ed bettercrootball than evar before in lus
career, but he cannot be placed in the
same class with, the two leaders. School,
of Cornell, aud Booth, of Princeton, can
travel by themselves, the latter taking a
big drop in his encounter with Cadxila
der. Brown, Yale's freshman, is perhaps the
leading right guard, bur McCracken, of
Pennsylvania, is close on his heels, Bro vn,
fo a practically green player, handled both
Bouve, of Harvard, andCrowdis.ot Prince
ton, in a sutprlsingly easy manner. Mc
Cracken is possibly a better ground gainer,
but he Is not up to Brown in a knowledge
or fine points. Edwards, or Princeton, and
Bernis Pierce, tlie captain ot the Indians,
round out a very formidablequartet.
Outlana, of Pennsylvania, is a shade
better at right tackle than Chamberlain,
of Yale. The former Is a harder man to
down when he Is running with the ball,
but the Yalensian is a fiercer tackier and
is in all the plays. Hillebrand, of Prince
ton, is not much infeiior to these men,
and is regarded by many as second in
older. Scales, ot West Point, Is also
rated high, for he is a splendid football
player in all departments. Donald, of
Harvard, and McLaughlin, ot Cornell, arc
about equal in point ot skill.
Cochran remains the best right end in
the country, despite the fact that he "was
Injured in the game with Yale. In truth,
tbero is no faster end in America than
the Princeton captain when he is fit and
well. Hall, ot Yale, Is next in oTler,
slightly in advance of Moulton, the best
end on the Harvard eleven. McKcever,
of Cornell, appears to ba the superior of
Hedges, of Pennsylvania.
There are three starquurterbacks. Young,
of Cornell, taking into consideration his
wonderfol rushing ability, his kicking, both
punts and drops, nnd his snappy tackling,
appears to be entitled to the paha. De
Saulles.or Yale, is no doubt a better rusher,
but I13 cannot kick. Baird.ot Princeton, isa
phenomenal kicker, but ho lb not much ot
a g-.ound gainer. He knows the game like
a liook, though, and runs a team with ex
cellent Judgment, but his real place is at
fullback. Hudson, the phenomenal kicker of
the Carlisle Indians, would be a great
quarterback if he could run with the ball
after catching punts. But he seems only
fitted to make goal trials, and, is, there
fore, outclassed by Garrison, or Harvard,
aud Weeks,. ot Pennsylvania.
There are so many fullbacks that there
is a greatrdifference or opinion as to w.'io
are the1 best men. Dibblee, at Harvard,
appears to have the call in many quarters,
and Kelly.pf Princeton, comes ne?t. Fulu
and Gammons, ot Brown, are a fast pair,
but they art' equaled by Whiting, of Corujll,
and Dudlex,bf Yale. Nesbltt, of West Point,
and Bannarjl, oC Princeton, are also in the
same class. "Walbridge, oC Lafayette, is a
great it.tlividual player, and would proba Iy
be a star oa a team as strong as Pennsyl
vania 01; Yale. Jackson and Morice.or the
Quakcrsi drfe only ralr.
Minds', of Pennsylvania, is by farthe best
fullback besides being one of the finest

He is a good kicker, but hits strength lies
in a wonderful ability to tear up the oppos
ing rush lines. Wheeler, of Princeton, may
be regarded as second best.chieriy because
or his kicking ability. McBride's all
around work entitles him to third place,
and Wilson, of Cornell, is a far better player
than Haughtou, or Harvard. "With these

IN THE WORLD OF LABOR.
Although opr-n hostillUes have not been
declared, t is patent to those familiar with
the situation that the two factions )f or
ganized labor in the District, the trades
unionists and Knights or Labor, are quietly
marshaling their forces for a pitched battle,
and when it comes will no doubt result in
tlie extc lation of one or the other of
As a matter of fact these two factions
have been making warfare one against rhe
other since tlie trade unionists secured a
firm foothold in the District by the organ
ization of the Central Labor Union. Sev
eral or the organizations of which the
union is composed not long ago were in
very friendly terms with the Knight3 of
Labor, through their afriliation with the
local Federation ot Labor. Since tlie forma
tion of the Central Labor Union this friend
ly relationship ceased, and, unfortunately'
for both the ractionsi have been drifting
rnrther and farther apart. And now, in
stead of the feeling ot friendship which
once existed, the bitterest hatred prevails.
The internal troubles in District Assem
bly No. 66, Knights ot Labor, have been
closely watched by the trades uuionists,
who openly proclaim that the organiz.i
tion is on the verge of disintegration.
In that event the unionists would have
a clear field for operations in the city,
for, under the circumstances, with the
exception ot the few assemblies with
national trade connections, the skllbd
workmen of the city would have no other
place to look for protection of their in
terests or the betterment ot their condi
tion. From what can be learned, how
ever, nothing seems farther from the in
tention or the Knights of Labor than to
disintegrate, either so far as a disruption
of District No. G6 is concerned, or the
withdrawal of any of the assemblies rep
resented. The differences which create dissension
among the members of the Assembly refer,
It is said, to upholding of the principles
of the order and not trade matters. And
no matter to what extent they may dis
agree itoong themselves on the interpreta
tion or the laws governing the order, they
are always leadyto unite against any at
tack from outsiders. Pretty much the
same condition of affairs exists now as .lid
a year ago, when the ''Simmons case" was
the talk of the hour, day and night ror
more than six months. It "was intimated
then that the District Assembly would be
disrupted, butinstead it habgrown stronger
It is true, two or three assemblies with

the increase in membership in the remain

the loss sustained on account of the with
Very soon after the organization of the
tr-de unionists into a central body they
locked horns with the Knights of Labor
over the boycott which the latter had
placed on the products of all the local
breweries. In fact, it "was on this issue
that, the labor forces of the District split",
all the local bodies dominated by traJes
unionist principles refusing to indorse
the boycott. As a consequence, the brew
ery proprietors contracted with the trades
representatives for union labor on till
buildings and improvements. After a
long fight, the Knights of Labor finilly
made terms with the brewery proprietors,
and also entered into a contract with ihem
for union labor. It "was stated at the time

tliat the trad.s unionists used eery ef

tliat time the relations between the two
local factions of organized labor hate lieen
Several other cau'ses have occurred since
the brewery troubles which tended to
widen the breach between the two factions.

the Consumers' Brewery in Rosslyn. Next
came trouble Wtw een the members of the
painters' trade while at work at the Sev
enth street wharf. Immediately follow'ng
these troubles differences arose between
the two ors&nlzattouaof musicians. Allot
these, however, were settled without the
arraying of the forces of the factions one
against the other.
Unfortunately for the influence ot or
ganized labor, rew cause1 of trouble have
arisen. For some time past the trades
unloulsts have complained of their tre la
ment by the local brewery proprietors.
Several at tempts were made to bringabout
a conference in order to effect an agree
ment, but this, so far, has not proven suc
cessful. The two organizations of brewery
wurkcrs are at daggers' points and accuse
each other or working under a charter
which does not rightfully belong to them.
This difficulty, however, has been prac
tically settled by the National Brewery
Workers' Union, by issuing a duplicate
charter to Brewery Workers' Union, No.
118. The brewery troubles, however, are
by no means ended, and Mr. Charles F.
Bechtold, seereturyof theNational Brewery
Workers' Union, is expected in the city
within the next few days to try and
straighten out matters. The local trades
unionists leaders have arranged for a con
ference between Secretary Bechtold and
the directors of the Consumers' Brewiry,
and It is expected that the claims of the
Knights of Laburaud trades union brewery
workers will bethoroughly investigated and
Besides this old sore, which has been ag

within the last few days other troubles have
arisen, winch, It great conservatism is not
used, must surely bringabout. a fierce war
between thp opposing factions. As in the
other instances the trouble referred to Is
the outgrowtt ot the organization or
duplicate trades unions to those ilready
formpd by the KnightyS of Labor. Th2
immediate cause ot trouble is the formation
ot a union of bakers drivers. This is
looked upon by the Knights ot Labor as the
throwing down of the gauntlet.
Such action, they say, is not in keeping
with the professions of "harmony and a
common interest" or the trades union
ists. For a long time the memliera or
the bakers' trado and the bakers' Jrivers
have been working in harmony, having
formed a combine known as the Bakers'
Council, in the interest ot all connected
with the tiade.
At the last meeting of the Klectrical
Workers Representative Sherman, or New
York, and Senator Cullom of Illinois, were
severely criticised for the part they took
during the last session or Congress m at
tempting to have an anti-ticket tcalping
bill railroaded through Congress. Such
legislation, the worklngmen maintain,
is directly in the interests or the railway
and steamboat companies, and Uetrinietital
to the laboring classes.
The resolution adopted by the Electrical

states: "We, ns a laboring class, reel it a
