rniLADEttfnu, April 2L Tho gamo hero
this afternoon between tho Phillies and Wash
ington opened tho championship season In
this city, and the public turned out nearly
15,000 strong In honor of the occasion.
The result of the gamo was most satisfactory
to tho big crowd, as the homo team won In a
canter. Espcr, who held tho Phillies down to
six hits on Thursday, was In tho points for
tho visitors, but the left-handed twirler just
lasted two Innings when Mercer was substi
tuted. Such slugging S3 was seen In tho Phillies'
Bocond Inning has seldom been witnessed In
this city. Out of tho 6ix runs scored flvo
were earned. When tho smoto had cleared
live two-baggers and a homo run wero sot
down against Sir. Espor. It wa3 a splendid
exhibition of hitting tho ball and sufficient to
retire Esper to the bench. Mercer did well,
but the game was already gono and his good
work went for naught Even Sam Thomp
son, who never could hit Espcr before, got in
a couple of solid whacks and obtained rovengo
for previous futile efforts.
Career did tho pitching for tho homo team
and held the Senators down to three hits, but
ho gave nlno bases on balls. Several of theso
came together in the sixth Inning, when
Washington scored two runs, all they made in
tho game. Abbey singled to left, and
after Mercer had filed out to Thompson, Car
sey gave threo bases on balls in succession,
forcing in tho first run. Sullivan then made
a scratch hit, scoring McGuire. Radford left
threo men on bases by Hying out to Allen.
Tho rhillles fielded superbly and mado a
fine Impression by their clean work, the spec
tators being liberal In applause. Tho do"feat
of Thursday has been wiped out in tho memo
ries of the fans by the victories of Friday and
to-day, and Irwin's men claim they will surely
bag Monday's game. Tho score:

EASY' FOR GEORGETOWN.
Columbian University Met with n Bad
Defeat at Baseball.
A young man named Dalzell faced tho
Georgetown sluggers at Capital Tark ester
day aftornoon, and when the latter got
through Mr. Dalzell'a delivery had been pun
nishod for nineteen hits, including threo
homers, two triples, and one double, with tho
remainder all singles. It was an easy victory
for Georgetown, and the Columbian Univer
sity bovs wero outclassed la every depart
ment of tho national game. Tho team from
over Rock creek put up a slashing good
game, their batting and fielding being both
excellent. Little Ilennon pitched good ball,
letting the Columbians down for one run and
four hits in tho nine innings.
Carmody gavo a pretty exhibition of field
ing, making two circus catches of fly balls.
Murphy also did finely at third, while Sulli
van and Iiarloy hit the sphere hard and often.
Ilennon made" the circuit of the bases four
times, and proved to bo a good all-round
G'reene and Bolway, of tho Y. M. C. A.
team, did tho best work for tho Columbians,
whilo Shlller looked after second In good
style. Tho only run made by Columbian
University was the product of a base on balls
to Hume, Laughlin's sacrifice, and singles by
McCammon and Greene. Georgetown scored
ono or moro runs in all bnt the fifth and
eighth innings. In tho ninth tbo unusual
feat was accomplished of the cntiro George

POLO NOW THE SOCIAL FAD
First Contest in the District Flayed
Yesterday at Chevy Chase.
MANY FASHIONABLES PRESENT
Capt H. M. Earle Led the Befenderi of the
Beds to Victory Amid the Applauso of the
Spectators If atches Will Be Played Every
Saturday During the Season.
The first game of polo over played in tho,
District attracted a largo number of the fash
ionables to the Chevy Chase Club grounds
.yesterday afternoon, nnd the new sport was'
mOBt successfully introduced. One year ago
H. M. Earle purchased a couple of ponies and
interested several fellow members of the
Chevy Chase Club in polo. The result was
seon in tho game yesterday, when the partici
pants, mounted on ponies, gave a creditable
exhibition, and from the enthusiasm dis
played by tho spectators their offorU woro
There were four playors on each side, known
as the Reds and Blacks, tho Reds being rep
resented by H. M. Earlo, captain, Collier,
Marrow, and Halloway, and the Browns by
Broome, captain, Ryder, Moore, and L. Earlo.
In addition to tho ponies a ball and mallets
comprise tbo paraphernalia of the game. Six
periods of ten minutes each wero occupied in
play, with flve-mlnuto intervals for rest
In the first periods the time expired with
out a goal, and the Blacks drew first blood in
tho second, when Mooro made goal. Then tho
Beds tied tho score, and the Blacks followed
with another goal in the fourth period.
Amid applauso tho Bods ngaln tied the score
in the fifth. Tho sixth and last period of play
was hotly contested, tho ball going from
one end of the field to tho other, tho Reds
finally scoring, thereby winning tho game by
3 goals to 2.
Owing to tho constant action the game is
similar, to a succession of pony races and
necessarily interesting to onlookers. Tho
Beds were greatly aided in winning through
tho clever team work of Halloway and H. M.
Earle. When one had the ball the other's In
terference was somewhat akin to football and
was very successful.
As a result of the Interest taken by tho club
members regular games will bo played every
Saturday, and later on matches may be ar
ranged with out-of-town clubs. Yesterday's
contest was rofereed by Capt. Edwards, V. S.
A., who gave entire satisfaction.

London, April 21. James J. Corbett, cham
pion pugilist of tho world, made his first ap
pearance on the stage in England at Drury
Lano theater this evening. The champion
was greeted by a large audlonco, but thcro

pected. The entrance of Mr. Corbett upon
the stage was loudly cheored, and throughout
the play tho actor-pugilist won considerable
"Gentlemen Jack," howovor, was con
demned generally as a play, but as a means
of exhibiting the champion it was pro
nounced a decided success.
The punching hag scene was a positive and
startling revelation to the British public.
They were perfectly astounded at tho clovor
display mado by the champion and loudly
demanded "encoro," until the American
kindly obliged the audience by a second ex
hibition of his skill at bag-punching.
When Corbett appeared, stripped for battle,
in the last act, his form and appearance called
forth loud demonstrations of approval, nnd
at tho end of the act he was called before tho
curtain amid cries of "sneocli."
Tho critics who passed opinions upon Cor
bett this evening after having seen htm in tho
training scene and stripped In tho last act
are unanimous in the opinion that ho is pro
bably tho most perfectly trained and skillful
boxer ever before the public, and nobody
wonders' that Mitchell suffered defeat at his

AFFAIRS IN INDIAN TERRITORY.
Senate Committee Sent to Investigate Re
turns With Information.
Senators Teller and Piatt, of tho Senato
committeo which was sent to Indian territory
two weeks ago to investigate tho relations of
the Indians and tho whito ccttlcrs, have re
turned and wero in their seaU yesterday.
Speaking of tho condition of nftairs in tho
territory, Senator Teller said it was very un
satisfactory, and that be had told the Indians
that ho should recommend to Congress that n
change bo made. Ho says that In some parts
of the territory there are ten whito porsons to
one Indian and that the whites have no rights
of citizenship at all. They are not even per
mitted to send their children to tho Indian
schools, which outide of tho towns nrc tho
only schools, nnd justico is very loosely ad
ministered, owing to tho system which pre
vails. He told them that it they hail not in
vited tho whites to tho territory they could
have continued their present system, but with
the whites there at their invitation something,
would have to be done for the improvement
of their condition. Senator Toller favors
tho establishment of n government upon tho
lines of tho ordinary territorial form of gov
ernment, nnd thinks tho lands should be di
vided in severalty among tho Indians nnd a
part of each man's holdings made inalienable.
Ho also thinks thnt Immediate- steps should
be taken to improve the court facilities.

THE DAY NEAR AT HAND
Mass Meeting of the Local Cornmon
wealers Enthusiastically Attended.
GLADLY WELCOME THE ARMY
Coxeys Crowd Will Not Come Here Searing
Anns Commonweal Song Extra Precau
tions Being Mado for Guarding the Treas
ury and tho Capitol Mora Police.
There was an enthuslastio meeting of the
people In sympathy with tho movement of the
commonweal last night at Coxey headquar
ters, corner Four-and-a-half street and Penn
sylvania avenue northwest, to perfect ar
rangements for meeting and entertaining tbo
army upon Its arrival in tho city. The hall
The meeting was called to orderly Col. A.
E. Bedstone, who requested tho election of a
chairman. A. M. Cook was pelocted, but ho
was not present, and Mr. J. R. Mahoney wa3
unanimously elected to the chair. On the
platform were tho speakers of tho ovenlng,
Mrs. Anna L. Diggs, CoL Redstone, Mr. Y.
Dewitt, and ex-Congressman Wiso, of Penn
sylvania. An earnest opening address was
made by John R. Mahoney, in which ho said
that he was a Coxeylto only so far as any
man would go out in his feelings toward an
other man in distress. Ho had great admira
tion and sympathy for this band of men
crossing tho mountains despito tho severe
snowstorms and ice, and favored the move
ment, inasmuch as tbo idea was to relieve
the distress of thousands of persons all over
tbo country. Tho people should exert their
Inflnenco to have the army met with loaves of
bread and not with fixed bayonets.
Col. Redstone said thnt arrangements had
been made for muslo at the mass meetings,
and Introduced Mr. A. Tregana, who will bo
in charge. Then tho audience sang tho six
verses of "Tho Commonweal Song," ending
each verse with the rousing chorus:
"Hurrah! Hurrahl let Congress hear our plea.
Hurrah! Hurrah! the people now decree.
Laws that speak for Justice and for true hu
manity. While truth la marching on to victory."
Mrs. Anna L. Diggs, of Kansas, then ad
dressed the meeting. She compared the
Coxey army to the body of men who marched
on the Capitol yesterday. The difference be
tween tho two was that the men of yesterday
were able to come in cars, wear good clothes,
and stop at hotels. They represented corpor
ations or moneyed concerns, and asked for
the passage of certain laws that would benefit
the capitalists, while the Coxey band are
tramping across the mountains, sleeping
under the chilly canopy of heaven, and they
ask legislation in the Interest of the whole
population to benefit every legitimate indus
try In the country, and not for any particular
class. Tho men are coming not as Republic
ans or Democrats.' but as American citizens,
and If there ore any thieves or tramps in the
city the people will bo protected by the Coxey
Mr. Roberts, of Tennessee, said that they
were there last nlgbt, not as citizens of Wash
ington, bnt as representatives of the whole
country. The movement Is to carry out a re
lief principle for the people of this country,
and Congress will not decide the question on
which so much depends, but the people will.
Ho mado some decidedly emphatic rerrnrks
concerning the arrest of the rrimrose men,
and referred to Judge Kimball as tho "shoe
Ex-Congressman Wise, of Pennsylvania,,
said that tho men who were coming wero
born and educated as citizens of the United
States, nnd their conduct would bo no refle
tion upon the people. He had faith in Con
gress and faith in the pollco force, and be
lieved that the men would be treated fairly.
The final speech was mado by Mrs. Clara
Colby, editor of the Woman's Tribune.
Committees were appointed as follows: On
public comfort, G. O. Cook. P. J. White, J.
DeWitt, P. J. Dougherty, P. J. Maddigan, T.
H. Godney, Mrs. GofT, Mrs. Maltby, Mrs. Da

suitable location for tho encampment of tho
army. As soon as ho mado this offer he re
quested to have his name taken off tho com
mittee on permits and locations.

TRAIN WILL TALK,
And Col. Redstone Talks About George'
Francis nnd Ills Coming Visit.
CoL Albert E. Redstone was en evidence at
Reehabite hall yesterday, as usual. As Thb
Times man entered tho colonel was examining
a big plug of tobacco with wbioh he had just
been presented, and to which was attached a
card that bore this legend:
"For CoL Redstone. To keep the Coxey army
norves quiet 'They havo bit off more than they
can chew.' "
"Who havo bitten off moro than they can
chew, the army or Its antagonists?"
"No matter, but the Coxey boys say that
the stuff chews all right."
"Any fresh news in relation to tho move
ment?" !Yes. I have received word fromGoorgo
Francis train that he will come hero and hire
a large hall, in which the Coxeyites may
bivouac free of cost. Train says that the
Coxey commonweal is only the flying battal
ion of 4,000,000 American citizens with hun
gry stomachs. He claims that ho turned on
tbe psychic force that set the Coxey army in
motion. Ho will deliver several speeches
during his sojourn here."
"Colonel," said The Times man, "what
ever became of the loaf of bread that was sent
from Arkansas in care of President Cleve
land for the benefit of the Coxey army?"
"It Is as yet in n mysterious hiding placo.
The express company agreed to deliver it at
the commonweal headquarters if not left In
tho care of tho person to whom it was di
rected. It should bo forwarded to Its destina
tion." "Yes," spoke up one of the Coxeyites in tho
hall, "wo want It that we may have it
photographed and scatter tho pictures of it
all over the land as a souvenir of tho move
ment." "Colonel," queried The Times commis
sioner, "what of all this talk that trouble is
being created for Coxey by the 'Unknown,'
tho 'Veiled Woman, ct aLV"
"Bot! Nothing In it! Plutocratio lies!" and
the colonel left.

Is This a Former's Joke?
Organization of a farmer's army, several
hundred strong, with a march to Washing
ton as tho object, and the movement confined
to Virginia and Maryland, is the substance of
a letter received at the Interior Department
yesterday. Tho informant is a farmer of Fau
quier county, Va., who asserts that there are
well-founded rumors of a general organized
movement among the farmers.
Ho declares that they will come to Wash
ington to demand an explanation from Coxey
for demanding protection frjm the govern
ment when tho farmers have not yet taken
action. Farmers, it is claimed, have no rep
resentation in tho Ohioan's rank nnd file nnd
a demand for General Coxey 's reasons for
tho discrimination is one of the objects of tho
trip. Tbe scheme is looked upon by tho
officials as a hoax.
