MUD HORSES HAD THE CALL
Those Who Luckily Spotted Them
Reaped a Golden Harvest.
FRANK R. HARF WAS DEFEATED
Both levina and Ponce do leon Finished
Ahead of the Great Sprinter Sirocco Made
anUnsnccessfulDebut His Draco Showed
Improvement Over Hia Previous Form.
Backers of favorites and followers of "form"
had a bad day at the Alexander Island track
yesterday, only two first choice passing the
post winners. The heavy track may account
for tho roversal of "form" shown by some of
the horses. Tho attendance was large, con
sidering tho weather, speculation in tho ring
was brisk, twelve pencilers supplying tho
wants of tho eagor bettors.
Threo of the successful horses Marguerite,
Lovina, and His Grace to uso sporting lan
guage, "walked in," while Con Lucy and
Finnwater had not much troublo in winning.
Altogether it was a tamo day's sport. Tho
oneo famous sprinter Sirocco made his debut
in the opening event, but was unable to ex
tend himself intno going, and was only third
at tho finish, Con Lucy and Taragon beating
him handily. It is more than probablo that
whon these threo horses meet again over a
good track Sirocco will outsprint them from
start to finish.
Frank It. Harrmot with defeat In tho fourth
race, a sovcn-furlong dash, the consistent
racer being unable to go to tho front In any
part of tho race. Levina -went forward in
the weignts and, fond of "mud," made all of
tho running and won easily, while ov(-n I'onco
deLeon finished ahead of Barf, who barely
escaped being beaten for third money by
The closing event was won by His Grace.
Tho6e -who backed tlio latter at 6 and 10 to 1
very likely remombered that the Dwyer cast
off had been out for an "airing" only in his
previous race. Geiger, who rode His Grace,
must have had a swell bet on his mount, for
he made every post a winning post. Sum

C0UMBIA ATHLETIC EXHIBITION
Local Indoor Record for High Jump
Brokon New and Old .Members
Did Good Work.
Several hundred friends of tho Columbia
Athletic Club enjoyed its first athletic exhibi
tion of this season last night, and were en
thusiastic in their pralso of tho splendid work
of the athletes.
Prof. Crossley has every reason to be proud
of the Btandard his pupils havo reached in
their several lines, and that, too, so early in
tho season for indoor work.
Tho programme opened with exercises on
tho German horse by Prof. Crossley and his
class, consisting for this work mainly of
Upon tho horizontal bar a very finished
performance was given by Eddio Sewoll,
Midgo Boss. Howard Allen, Boyce Hough
and Harry Holbrook. A number ol new and
difficult turns wero introduced. Aftor this
an exhibition in foil fencing by tho club in
structor in fencing, Prof. Daria'lnt and pupil
was well received.
Then came what proved to be the stnr per
formance of the evening. It was a surprise
in every way and tho performers wore heart
ily congratulated, for two members broke tho
club a3 well as the local recordi for indoor
running high jump. Tho record up to this
time wns fivo feet nine inches, mado by Boyce
Hough last year. Last night Hough and
Arthur McElhono wero a tie at fivo feet ton
inches. It was a good squaro jump and
clearing tho bar at thi3 heighth is remark
able. The' tie will be jumped off on Ladies'
Day, on Thursday next.
Frank Waters, Charles Griffith, and Trof.
Crossley then Rave an acrobatic performance,
which was well rounded and finished in every
way, each doing his trick promptly nnd neatly.
Two wrestling exhibition followed. In the
first Howard Allen, at 14.2, and Stratton, at
132, did somo good work. Allen won both
falls, one in three and tho second in two and
a half minutes. Stratton showed moro
science, but his opponent's weight was too
much for him.
Tho wrestling bout between Harry Leo and
Ernest Schaf hirt wa3 deolared a draw, neither
securing a fall.
Several novelties wero given on tho flyinc
rings by Midgo Boss, Watts, Holbrook, and
Prof. Crossley. '
In tho exercises on tho spring board and
horse tho entire class took part.
Tho sparring bouts wero enthusiastically
received, as it had boeji announced that sev
eral new aspirants for sparring honors would
appear. At tho close of the bouts George
Carter, tho instructor in boxing, was con
gratulated upon tho work of his pupils. Oscar
Carter and M. O'Leary gave a spirited ex
hibition in two rounds. Then appeared Clark
and Bynum, who handlod themselves like
veterans. Tbey will no doubt give good ac
count of themselves in tho open sparring ex
hibition later in tho season.
Instructor Carter and Ambrose had a lively
"go." Tho Intter, at 115 pounds, is considered
the best amateur in his class in tho city and
ho will, no doubt, represent the club at his
weight in tho coming open sparring contests.
As these bouts wero all exhibitions, no de
cisions wero rendered.

real league games begin.
In addition to tho organizations which havo
alrendy taken an interest in tho game I am
informed that the National Billes aro nbout
to tako it up.
With tho quantity of oxcollont mntorial in
this popular organization thoro is no reason
why a strong team should not bo gotten to

practice during tho wook.

tween Carroll Institute and Columbia Athletic
Club, and the following week, at Washington

Corps. Games for tho other organizations
have not yet been nrrnnged.
An effort will bo made to secure tho dona

rangement. Such a banner would add
greatly to tho interest of tho contests.
COLUMBIA ATHLETIC CLUB.
Arrangements are being perfected for tho

IX THE BOWLIXO ALLETS.
The bowling team is at last striking its
gait and encouraged at its succss upon its
alleys, and at the Buena Vista Club, there is
little doubt but what it will reach and hold
tho place it deserves In the league.
Masonis one of tho mainstays of tho team,
and it was lucky in having him as a substi
tute. He now seems to be a regular.
It is still "Beliable" John Walker. Ho
saved the team a game on Thursday.
Tho cocked-hat bowlers aro getting in lots
of practice for tho "small ball" club tourna
ment, which bojiins shortly.
The basket-ball team of tho Carroll Insti
tute has every reason to feel very proud over
its victory in tho game with the Baltimbre Y.
M. C. A. team last week. With tho good re
sults which must como from practice for
team work, tho team will bid for a hish
placo in the league ranks. Wbat it now
lacks more than anything elsa is a" captain.
This all teams must have, for somo ono must
direct players and tbe plays to bo made, and
with no head, or as it now is, all heads, no
team can successfully compete with a prop
erly captained team.
Prof. Joyce is pleased with tho increase of
Tho recent largo addition to tho member

good nll-around work.
Prof. Joyce is hard at work on a brother
act with Moran as a top-mounter. This and
several other novelties aro promised for tho
exhibitions to bo given early next month.
Mat liorno is quito an expert at club
swinging. Ho will bo placed in charge of a
boys' class to teach them in thi3 branch.
Tho ladies' classes, under Prof. Joyce, aro
making rapid progress in their work nnd
with splendid results. An exhibition for
ladies only is promised for the near future.
Tho bowling team is not satisfied to lend
tho league by only a few points. It will
strive by hard work to put several addi
tional points between itself and tho second
Bice is a strong addition to tho team. Capt.
Schulteis is bowling a steady, strong game.
Armstrong never tires of winning. Ho i3
very enthusiastic over tho make-up of the
ronxG men's catholic club.
Tho bowling team of tho Y. M. C. C. has a
good excuse for its failure to mako a better
showing in tho league games.
It has been deprived of several evenings
practice each week on account of tho re
hearsals of the play in tho gymnasium ad
joining tho bowling alloys. Aftor tho holi
days it promises to mako up for lost ground.
Tho team has good material which will mako
itself evident before the next return games.

WIDOWS ftUST WORK.
Otherwise They' Cannot Draw Pensions,
Says Assistant Secretary Beynolds.
Something of a stir has been created among
Congressmen by tho announcement that tho
Pension Bureau will refuse pensions to wid
ows whose income from other sources, added
to tho proceeds of reasonable effort on their
part, affords thorn comfortable support.
This policy is provided for In a ruling of
Assistant Secretary Beynolds, based on tho
"Juno 27, 1860," act. In his decision the
assistant secretary says: "It was evidently
tho intention of Congress to supplement the
widow's means of support from her own
labor and all other sources by
tho pension, only when such means
wero insufficient for her comfort
able support. Undor ordinary circum
stances, without intending to lay down an
arbitrary and inflexible rule, wnen a widow
is shown to havo an income considerably in
excess of the pension prodded by tho third
section of the act, from sources independent
of her daily labor, she does not occupy a
pensionable status thereunder."
Judge Beynolds has also held in tbe case of
James Keating, of tho Fifteenth Begiment.
United States Infantry, that where a soldier
died before final action by tho Bureau of
Pensions, and his claim had been subse
quently rejected, tho attorney of record has
no legal right to appeal from such rejection
without first obtaining from the widow of the
soldier a power of attorney to continue its
HER HOT SOUTHERN BLOOD.
Mrs. Mnrburc is a Modern Portia and
Would Shoot to Kill.
A talkative littlo woman, whose dark cos
tume was relieved by a bright red silk waist,
answered to tho namo of Mrs. Virginia Mar
burg in Judge Miller's court yesterday and
appeared 03 prosecuting witness against
David S. Townsend, a veteran, who was
charged with assaulting her.
Sho assumed a striking attitudo on the wit
ness stand, and exclaimed dramatically that
sho was tho discarded wife of William A.
Marbur?, tho millionaire Baltimore tobacco
nist. Sho said ho had left her a "prisoner of
poverty," and she was going to show him up
as a man who leads a dual life.
"I can stand any other burgh for life, but
not a Marburg," she said. "I am to appear
before tho public in a few days In the cos
tume of a living picture, as "modern Portia,
and will lecture on 'Applied Christianity,'
'nnd will Dlead the cause of the prisoners of
"She declared that sho was a Southern
woman in all that tho term implied, and that
had she hnd a revolver when Townsend in
sulted her she would have laid him dead at
her feet. After testifying against tho defend
ant sho said "the Bible says blessed aro tho
merciful." and asked his honor to dismiss tho
defendant, which was done.
DEATH TO THE DEATHTRAPS.
Congress Asked to Require Railroads to
Block Their Frogs.
Hon. Michael J. McEttrlck, of Massachu
setts, yestordny introduced a humanitarian
bill in the House. Tho bill provides that rail
roads shall block their frogs, thus preventing
tho men from having their feet caught in
these deathtraps and holding them fast, while
tho engine bears down upon them, resulting
in almost certain dentil.
Anyone familiar with railroad switches and
frogs readily appreciates how easy it is to be
caught in these iron vices. Many devices havo
been invented looking to tho prevention of
such occurrences, thus providing for the
greater safety of tho railroad employes, but
no matter which of tbe many .methods Is
adopted, it will be hailed with delight by tho
thousands of railroad men.
Mr. McEttrick has been tho champion of
tho interests of workingmen during all his
long public service, both In the legislature of
Massachusetts and in the House of Bepre
sentatives, and if ho pushes this measure with
his customary vigor thero is every hope mat
it will speedily become a law, and thus de
servedly receivo tho gratitude of all rail
road employes, as well as of those who aro
interested in tho cause of humanity.
