Tho weather -was most propitious, tho
day all that could be desired, and In many
other respects the celebration enjoyed
tho 6miles of Fortune. There was lees
friction -than on previous occasions, -a.
greater number of organizations turned
out, and there was generally, so far as ap
peared upon the surface, a feeling abroad
of concord and amity.
Owing to the delay in starting It was
2:15 p. m. before President Cleveland
stepped forward from tip front door of the
Executive Mansion, and with tall silk
hat in hand bowed in acknowledgment
of the salute from Chief Marshal Alex

C. MURPHY'S CLEYER TflDB
SticKs to a Runaway Without a Bridle
for Three Miles.
He JWas Loudly Applauded Whon Ho Bo
turned to tho Stand Capt Mad
dux's Ella Beats Koy "West.
An unusually large attendance was pres
ent at tho Alexander Island track yester
day. The card promised some good sport
and looked easy, so the talent turned out
in full force.
Twenty members of the bookmaking
fraternity put up their slates with tho
expectation of downing the talent, but
could only succeed in making an even
break, three favorites and as many long .
shots getting tho money.
The grand stand at the track has been
much improved by taking out the glass
front, which has been up all winter. During
tlie past few weeks it has been very close
even with the windows up.
Jockey C. Murphy gave a very clever ex
hibition of horsemanship in the second
race. He was riding Lady Danby, and in
one of the breakaways her bridle rein slip
ped from her head and she started off like a
shot. Murphy took the martingale from her
neck and attempted to get it on her nose
and choke her off. As fast as he would
get it in position it would slip off. At
last after running three miles the filly
commenced to Blow up, and while going
down tlie track stretch for the fourth
time, the boy jumped lrom her back with
out hurting himself. When he returned
to the stand he was loudly applauded for
his pluck and clever riding.
Key West, on his race of Saturday, looked
like a good thaig in the first event, and
went to the post a 4 to 5 favorite. Ella
was fancied by many and closed at fives.
The large field made a good btart very
hard to manage, and Cassldy sent them orf
somewhat straggling. Ella got in front
in the first iurlong and was never caught,
winning in a hard drive by a short head
from the favorite, Key West. A. O. H. was
third, two lengths away.
Nothing daunted by Key West's defeat,
the talent came back and simply flooded the
bookies with Bellagio and Dama money.
The former finally closed an even money
favorite with Dama at8 to 5.
It was in this event that Lady Dauby
ran away and they were delayed attliejiost
nearly an hour. When they did finally
get off, Rienzl was left Blandiug stock
still. Dr. Parktwnr went to the front
to the far turn, where Tommy Lally com
menced to move up, and getting in front
as they swung into the stretch, was a wiur- '
at the end in a drive by two lengths. Bel
lagio second as many before Dama.
Hughey McCarreu's pet, Trinculo, was
in tho next race aud as good as G to 5
could bo had against him. Con Lucy
being heavily played to beat him was the,
cause of this liberal price.
Trinculo took command at tho fall of
the flag, and running under the bat the
whole way won a game race by three parts
of a length fromForest, who beat Tammany
Hall a neck.
The public scored again in the fourth
race. Gallatin was an even money favor
ite throughojt the betting, with Margue
rite next in demand, at threes.
To a fair start Marguerite cut out the
running to the far turn, ..where Gailatin
came with a burst of speed and won as
he pleased by a length. Pat Woodcock
came foot In the stretch and got second
money from Marguerite.

Creary Pitches a Good Gamo Altman in
Fino Form Bradley Was Everywhere.
Harloy's Throw-in Same Teams To day.
So different from the game with Yale!
It is al ways the unexpected that happens.
It was a cold day in more waya than
one on Georgetown campus yesterday.
The admirers -of Georgetown Univer
sity baseballit toom felt sure It would
gain a victory ojjer the Princeton Tigers
In tho gnrao yesterday afternoon, but it
was Georgetown's oft day, and the gamo
went to "01dNassau" to tho tune of 12
to 7. t .5
It was a game full of good playing, with
Just a littlo of tho saffron on both sides
to set off tho shade of blue which crept
in as tho excitement of the game and the
awfully poor pleco of umpiring allowed
errors to mako their presence and effect
It is not intended that the loss of tho
game by the local 'Varsity is to bo
charged to the umpire, but true it is that
blB-'decis.ions were in a number of in
stances, as tho bleachers would say,
"rotten' aud cost the homers several
Tuns awl possibly the game.
IT WAS A GALA SIGHT.
The two grand stands were filled and
the two sides of thogfjgld'were crowded
with spectators, and all tho space re
served for carriages was taken. It was
a gala sight to see the field and stands
dotted with the "yellow and Hack" of
Princeton and the "blue and gray" of
the local college, and above all to hear the
sputter and nioiin and roar and explosion
L of the college yells and cries intended as a
means or. encouragement anu discour
agement. Tho vlsitois came prepured, and expected
to find "a hard row to Loe," and they
wcra not disappointed, for the locals put
up a good game of ball, brilliant at tames,
but always strong, except in one inning,
When some hodoo or other broke the charm.
Georgetown's three errors were costly.
The mighty Altman was in the box for
the "Tigers," and he pitched the game
for which ho has become famous. Ho has
excellent control of the ball and a very
deceptive lot of curves, but succeeded in
striking out ouly three locals.
-He was touched up at times in lively
manner, but with no damaging' results, as
the fielders behind him gave exceptionally
fine support and especially did Bradley in
right garden hhlne out prominently In this
Hue. Hits seemingly good for three bags
were nailed with uppurentease. .
Williams, tlie doughty little catcher,
played his position without an error, his
throwing being cspcciully fine.
It was reserved for McCreary to fill in
the points against the Tigers and he
pitched an oxcellent game and was well
received by the genial Sullivan, who, with
two or three exceptions, handled every
thing well that came his way.
In the ninth, when it was just a little
too late, G. Mahoney exchanged places
with McCreary, and the tide was turned
a little, for the score was mounting along
to where it took two figures to express it.
By the lime ho got his arm warmed up tlie
game was over.
SURPRISES AND DISAPPOINTMENTS.
; As In the Yale game Jwth teams drew
nblankin t he .first inning. ThcnPrincetou
opened and succeeded in getting a man home
on a base on'lmlls and an out and pretty
hit over short; Jy Bradley. Georgetown
followed suit and tied the score. At the
end of the third inning it was still a tie,
and the score 2 to 2.
Sharp, brillfcrit fielding on both sides,
together with magnificent work ou the
part of both jiitchers made it impossible
for either side, to score in the fourth, fifth,
and sixth. In-.the last half of the latter
the umpire began more than ever tomakehis
density felt. With two of Georgetown out
and Murphy .-on first, Altman .muffed Mc
creary's fly, aud on the play Murphy
landed on second safe by a yard, but he was
called out, much to the eitrprlse of Ward
and the dismay if Murphy.
It was Princeton's chance now and with
a niElt three rubs were made in the seventh.
With no one out and Eastonon, first,
Otto, the Blond, cracked out a hit along
first base line which Mahoney made an
able erfort to get, bnt slipped", and Easton
was easy on third, and Williams at bat, to
do or die. He did the latter on McCreary's
pick-up and throw to Mahoney, holding
Easton on third, a pretty play. Altman
was then up.
His grounder to third was splendidly
stopped by Murphy, who easily cut off
Eaton at home. Altman safe at first.
Now came Payne, and the excitement
was intense. "Will he bring In his men?"
was asked. Jle did, by a pretty hit over
second he brought in Otto and Altman, and
he himself second, on a passed ball by Sul
livan. Ward's hit passed McCreary, and
Bradley's liner went through Murphy and
on the prettiest throw-In of the day Hariey
cut oTf the runner at home.
McCarthy was the first raan up in
Georgetown's half of tho seventh, and he
was implored to do something to save the
game, and he was promptty hit by Altman,
who was getting wild.
G. Mahoney sent along one out toward
the tennis courts, but the spry Bradley
was there with his little basket, and Big
Mike was out; hard luck for him. Mc
Grath followed suit, and then by another
extremely doubtful decision Murphy was
declared out at first, and the score
stood 5 to 2.
The "Tigers" were unsatisfied with
this lead, and added five more in their
half of the eighth.
BIG MIKE CHEERED THEM.
Big Mike shouted "Cheer up" to his men
when Wilson took the place of Altman.
McCreary led off with a base on balls, Bar
ley followed with a bit, and then Ed Ma
bonoy flattened one out past third. All eyes
wero now upon Sullivan. Would ho cut
down tho enemy's lead. He would. His hid
and on the play Mahoney tried for third
and wassafe by ayard, buthe waspromptly
declared out amid the moans and hisses
of the crowd. It wasa robbery.
Carmody theii advanced Sullivan, and
McCarthy followed with a safe hit, and
Sullivan .scored. McCarthy died at second,
and Carmody came in on McGrath's hit.
Murphy again made an apparently safe hit
and easily beat the ball to first, but again
the umpire showed his grudgo and declared
Things were becoming exciting, and the
visitors began to show nervousness. George
town was playing aplcndid uphill game.
Now for the last inning. Mahoney took
McCreary's place and presented Eaton with
a base, Gunster having been given ono
by McCreary. , With two out op a pretty
double play-ffom E. Mahoney to MeGratb.
to G. Mahoney, Williams put up a fly
which wasii.ed by Carmody, but was
recovered in time to throw him out at
second, and. the score stands 12 to G.
Ono more little chance and the blue and
gray began ita half of the last. With
McCreary out at first, Hariey hit safely,
and in quick succession stole second and
third, and tioirio ou Sullivan's out. Car
mody flew rouF and the gamo was over.
Score 12 td, 7C
Murphy eyidptly had an off day, his
playing was in and out. He is capable of
better workl. McCarthy's and Carmody's
hitting and.'ficldlng were a feature. Har

Bettors Who Don't Intend to Get
the Worst of It.
MAKE THE JOCKEYS RIDE OUT
Thoy Station Themselves at tho Head of tho
Stretch to Boa That Fair Flay Is Given.
Secretary Tompkins Drops His Horses
Into SoftPlace3, a Frocosding That Would
Hot Be Allowed on Any Other Track.
"It is impossible to teat this game,"
said a well known trainer as he passed
out of tho gate at Alexander Island yes
terday. He echoed the feeling of ninety,
nine out of every hundred of the crowd
that, filled the train on tho homeward
journey, for while tho racing during
the afternoon had been a little bit cleaner
than the usual run, there was still ample
grounds for complaint.
Public form at the track is a farce, and
betters who make a business of following
the lines laid down in racing charts, never
attempt to follow them at this place. To
do so would be a waste of both time and
money. The one way that a better stands
a chance is to follow the "gang" in their
play. To bet against them is like burning
money up. They control nearly all the
riders at tho track, and that gives them
an immense advantage.
This is not of course honest racing, but
no one who has ever visited the track
looks to see there anything that might be
termed honest sport. The place started In
wrong, aud no attempt has ever been made
to better it. Those in control are getting
rich, but tho public are paying dearly for
it. There is just ono result for thoe who
continue to bet on the apology for races
run over the track, empty pockets. When
shallow-minded yoaths-uru permitted to de
liberately pull horses, whon certain owners
aro allowed the utmost leniency In the run
ning of their horses, when bargains for
wrong doing are openly made with book
makers without the slightest attempt to
check it, how can anyone look for honest
Some hoped that the big increase of
revenue brought by tho opening of St. Asaph
would bring a show of vigilance from those
incharge, but, in place ora bettering, things
have become worse. Tlie vultures have
found larger and richer crowds to prey
on, and their appetites have been satisfied.
Their nests are well feathered, but they had
better beware, as a perfect tornado of dis
gust is arising among those who have- been
fleeced, and when it bursts some one la
liable to get hurt.
SPORT FAIRLY REEKS.
The race-going public are the most pa
tient people in the world. They will stand
abuses otall klnd3 for a time, but once their
feelings are aroused they must be satisfied.
The clas3 of sport that has been furnished at
the Alexander track during the last six
weeks fairly reeks. The place has been run
with one object to fill the pockets of those
who class as the faithful. The very scum of
the turf have been pampered to and re
ceived with open arms. Ownera and jockeys
with reputations besmirched have been
looked on as most desirable members of the
flock. Bookmakers known to make a busi
ness of layingagalnst horses whichtheyknow
are not "meant" have flocked to the place.
Their coming has brought a lessening of
the profits of "The Embalmer" and "The
Morgue," but the carcass daily brought to
their domains is stiil of generous propor
tions, and all the buzzards find it easy to
fill their maw.
A word of advice to these pirates of the
ring: Hoist your black flag as high as pos
sible. Nail your halyards to the pole and go
on with your thieving work at a rapid rate,
for the time for your devastation is limited.
The seas have been cleaned of bucca
neers, and so will the turf be cleaned of
plague spots, such as that at which you
hold forth. Steps are well under way to
close the place, and when the order comes
it will be obeyed, ami the closing will be a
The public at the track have already
started in to do something to protect their
rights. A number of the big bettors, who
do not boast of the confidence of "the ad
ministration," have banded together and
styled themselves "the Vigilants." Their
plan of action is to line up at equal dis
tances, from the head of the homestretch
to the paddock, and watch for some boy
that Ismore desirous of being last than first.
MAKE THEM RIDE OUT.
When they see him apparently asleep,
so far as making an effort to win goes, the
the shout that tells him "to go on" comes
like a cloudburst. "You thieving rascal,
go on and ride, or well knock you off
that horse," is the chorus that greets him,
and sometimes, if the case is an especially
bad one, the language used is not quite so
Bad as tfie riders aro, they seem to fear
this shout of warning and in at least half
a dozen cases during the past week horses
have been in the placed three that were
plainly not meant to bo.
It goes without saying that the manage
ment will put a stop to theso attempts at
self protection by their patrons.
A "dead one," "resurrected" is rather
costly to the bookies and the motto
of the place seems to be, "Protect the books,
no matter what tho cost."
To keep the racing straight would require
a man every few feet of the way, shouting
and screaming at the willing tools of the
ring. "Tlie Vigilants" work has beeu, in a
way, a success, but it i3 not probable that
they will ba allowed to continue.
Secretary Tompkins started two of his
horses yesterday. In both cases it looked as
if the races had been made to order for
them, but neither won, Bellagiobeing beaten
out by Tommy Lally, and GrandPrixf Hush
ing in third position. Thero was no chance
tocomplain at the mannerin which they were
ridden. Both were plainly out for "the
stuff" and were beaten on their merits, but
the general opinion expressed was that this
fact of an official owning horses is wrong.
Horsemen grumbled and quietly whis
pered that they were glad to see them
beaten, as it is not fair to havo a secretary
running horses. He has an advantage that
he should not have, and what is more, It
would not be tolerated at any other track
in the country.

Amateur Actors to Play "Still Watera
The Carroll Institute Dramatic Club has
"been hard at work rehearsing for a repro
duction or that sterling English comedy,
"Still Wators Rnn Deep," to be given at
the Institute hall on Thursday nfeht.
Their first appearance last year in a
number of Shakespearean sceaes Js still
pleasantly Temembered by a critical pub
lic, who at tho time predicted for them
a brilliant future.
This prophecy it seem is about to be
fulfilled, as "Still Waters Run Deep"
was recently rendered in a manner that
compared very favorably with, the best
The secret of their success is the careful
attention paid to details, and they never
allow a character to te slighted, as every
part, no matter how small, is placed in
tho hands of people of ability.
Mr. Edward J. Walsh, to whom the club
is indebted for its existence, is a graduate
of St. John's College, where he took the
gold medal for elocution. As Mr. John
Mildmay in "Still Waters Run Heep" he
adds another link to his chain of successes,
and in hi3 capable bands the part is made
one of great prominence and power.
Miss Anita. Hendne is one of the test
known elocutionists in the city, aad has
done some excellent work in leading fe
of the German Dramatic Club. She is
seen to best advantage in heavy roles,
and as Mrs. Sternhold wina for herself
praises that would te flattering to older
and more experienced persons than her
self. Mr. J. Travis Cocker has beea before the
public for some time, and has been suc
cessful in every role he has undertaken.

Shakespeare last winter will remember
his work as Melvalio, wbicli won for him
unstinted praise. He has appeared in a
number of comedy "bits" with Ws sister

Wilton Lackaye, who has often pleased
a Washington audience. She has had
experience as Golden Hair in "Golden
Hair," Countess Constantino la "Queen
Blanche of Castile," Mrs, Eva Tbomley in
"A Social Glass," and Portia in "The
Merchant of Venice." She has shown her
versatility by making a decided bit in
the light comedy role of Mrs. Honeyton in
"A Happy Pair."
Mr. Percy Leach, son of the late Dr. Ham
Leach, comes of a Thespian famMy, and is
so well known that it is only necessary
to mention a few of his hits. He is wed.
remembered in "Lord in Livery." Marcus
Grove in "Comrades.'' and as Sir Andrew
Aquecheek. Mr. Leach has been doing
a good deal of juvenile work, and when he
was cast for the part of old Mr. Potter
it was with fear and misgivings that his
frieud3 awaited the performance. He
made, however, such a decided hit as to en
title him to recognition as the most ver
satile amateur in the city.
Miss Nora Cocker, the ingenue of tho
club, is as sparkling and effenreseent 33
it is possible to be m everything she-aader-takes.
She Is a sister of J. Travis
Cocker, and the brother and steter are
counted among the cleverest of amateurs.
Mr. John J. Nolan has graduated from
St, John's College and gotten a gold medal
