FIGHTING OVER A LAWYER'S FEE
Cox GraiitH an Order Iti'strnintns
rayment anil Collection of. It.
A $10,000 fee is the subject of contro
versy in a suit brought yesterday by Belva
A. Lockwood and James Taylor against
Edgar M. Marble, George iC Hazleton,
Norman A. Newell, and Secretary Car
lisle. A Treasury draft has already been
issued to George C. Hazelton in payment
of the fee, and it has been turned over to
Mr. Marble, whose office is in New York.
The complainants ask that Messrs. Mar
ble, Haaelton and Newell be restrained
from collecting and Secretary Carlisle
from paying it.
The bill states that Mrs. Lockwood,
James Taylor and J. J. Newell mado a
contract in 18S4, which was renewed in
1894. for a pattnership in the collection
of claims for the Cherokee Indians, both
Eastern and Western, by which they were
to unite their several contracts with the
Indians and to share equally the .proceeds
of their combined efforts.
On January 25 the Western Cherokee
claim for $832,297 was awarded, and
35 per cent, set apart for payment of
fees, expenses, etc. Upon adjudication
of claims $10,000 was awarded to Lock
wood, Taylor and Newell. Mr. Newell,
fearing he might not get his money, em
ployed Messrs. Marble and Hazelton to
make the collection for him, nud the Treas
ury Department issued the draft for $10,
000 to Mr. Hazelton on February 12 last
The complainants say they are informed
that Mr. Newell is now dead, and previous
to his death bad assigned his interest in
tho fee to his son, Norman Newell. They
think, they have reason to fear that if the
fee is paid to Marble orHazclton they will
not be able to collect from Mr. Newell's
Cox granted a restraining order.

Drawn Dispute "With Duro Knuckles.
An Interesting schoolboy controversy
with bare knuckles was interrupted yes
terday afternoon by Policeman Wagner, of
the Ninth precinct, the contestants being
Willie Mahoney, aged twolve, and Joe
Krlchter, aged thirteen. The cause of
the struggle was a little school girl in
knickerbockcr dresses, to whose love each
boy thought the other less entitled. Be
cause of the intervention of tho policeman
the debate was called a draw.
Princeton Could Not Resist Their
MAHONEY F1TCHED GREAT BALL
Both Teams Flayed Loo3oly at Times, but
tno Bosnlt Waa Wot Much .flffectod
Thrco Homo Runs by tho Locals Also
Thrco Three-baggers Threo Pitchers
Tried by Princeton and All Fara Badly.
Tho Georgetown University baseball tearif
profited by its experience or Tuesday, for
yesterday it played fast, suappy ball arid
won the second game with Princeton with
comparative ease, with the score 17 to 11.
While errors and loose playing bobbed up
occasionally, neither were very costly, and
the players made up for them by putting in
generally good team work, better base run
ning and the fierccstkiudof batting.
Princeton was also guilty at times of loose
and careless playing.
Big Mike Mahoney pitched the full game,
and repeated his success in the game with
Yale. He was especially effective with men
on bases, and performed the remarkable
feat of striking out throe "Tigers" in suc
cession, with two men on bases. He fielded
hisposition well and made his batting a feat
ure. He was admirably supported by Sulli
van, whose playing was perfect, and who, in
addition, led his team in batting.
On the other hand Princeton could put
up no pitcher who had any terrors for
Georgetown, and three pitchers were tried,
with no success.
Tho mighty Bradley, who was almost
invincible in the Princeton-Yale game last
year, succumbed to the bombardment of the
Blue and Gray in thu sixth inning, and
then came Wilson who took a like dose,
and then the slender Easton was put up
for a mark in the last half of the eighth,
and he did best of all.
Reardon played in right field and ban
died everything well that came his way.
He also bntted well. In the eighth he
made a pretty two-bagger, bringing in
Murphy, stole third, and on Sullivan's
scratch hit, Rcardon tried for home and
was caught between bases, the whole team
going for him, but by skillful dodging and
passiug.cvaded the bunch and landed safely
on the rubber. It was too easy a chance
for Princeton to miss.
Cannody at first and E. Mahoney and
Murphy fielded their positions well and the
errors charged to them were caused bj low
throws from the infield. Harley had little
to do but dld.it well. McGratti played a
perfect game at short and McCarthy took
care of his two chances.
Little Williams, Princeton's crack catcher,
again played like a veteran and steadied his
pitchers, two of them being as wild as colts,
when they were not batted all over the field.
Brooks at short is an out-and-out excellent
ball player and will help hiBteam win many
a game at bat, at short and on the linns.
PLAYED SNAPPY BALL.
Altman at right and Ward on second
playeda snappy ball and accepted all of their
chances. Payne at left tried for everything
and consequently he had more running
exercise j-esterday with poor results than is
good fo r one day's work.
Gunster showed a little improvement
overyesterdav's work when he nodoubthad
n little or the rattles.
The firstiuning wasproductiveof two runs
for each side. The homo run by Sullivan,
which brought in Mahoney, was the feature
of the inning, and tho crowd, which num
bered about 1,500, many of whora were
ladies, settled itself for a hard hitting
game by Georgetown, and as the total of
nineteen hltsshos, the audience did not
settle in vain.
Three more in tho second on a terrific
hit for three bags by Carniody, and a gift
of bases to Mahoney and McGrath. Blanks
for both sides in the third. Ono run more
for the locals in the fourth on a home run
by Reunion, and then the battle began in
BRADLEY GOT WILD.
Bradley was weakening and getting wild,
and felt more slugging ahead, and he felt
aright Carmody began the music with a
safe one. and McCarthy's fly was muffed,
and he, too, was safe, and then big Mike
scored both on his long drive. One man was
out, and McGrath sailed one past Gunster,
and Mahoney came home.
In a twinkling the sphere flew from
Murphy's bat for four bags and pushes Mc
Grath in ahead of him. Reardon flew
out to Gunster and Harley was left on third
on his hit when Mahoney went out on fly
Princeton made it lively for Mahoney in
this inning. Bradley hit safely, but was
put out on Gunater's hit for two bags.
Ward was struck by pitcher and he and
Gunster scored on Altman's three-bagger,
and the next two were struck out.
Bradley then gave way to Wilson, and
Sullivan promptly hit safely, but was
doubled with Carmody on his hit to short,
and Mahoney out at first closed the sixth
inning. Wilson's home run was greeted
with applause. Otto, tho Blonde, drove
a fierce one at E. Mahoney, which was beau
tifully stopped, but tho throw to Carmody
was high and the Blonde was safe on second
and came home on Williams' out Brad
ley and Payne were easy outs, the score
standing 15 to 9.
WARD LANDED SAFELY.
In tho eighth Ward hit safely and
landed on second on the low throw to
Carmody by Mahoney. Altman made
another hit, Gunster punched out, and
Ward scored on Brooks' fly and out.
Wilson struck out Score, 17 to 10.
STILL ANOTHER PITCHER.
The Tigers felt like pulling the game out
of the fire and would take no more
chances, and little Eaton was put in
to stem the tide, and he promptly struck
out McCarthy, G. Mahoney, and Mc
Grath. One more chance for old Nassau, but sho
was not equal to the occasion, for the blue
and gray was on edge and promptly put out
the necessary three after Otto had scored
on Williams' long drive, and the agony for
the one and theparade fortheother wasover
and Georgetown again plainly demonstrated
her right to the claim of having the strong
est batting team among the big colleges.
And all this with Mike Mahoney in the

No theme has moro universally attracted
tho thought and 'been; tho subject of discus
Bion by both philofi6pnoraudd"butanto than
that of "Life." The school boy, after he
has written a dletettation on tho "Cow,"
thinks himself in a ji red to enlighten the
world on tho sdbject of "Life." After
all the philosophers, old and young havo
written and tajd on this bubject, What is
Life? Nerve powert nothing more, noth
ing less. This nerve power, or energy, is
dealt out to each of us by nature In certain
quantities. It ifl ours to spend as wo wish.
How often do young mou wasto it, oven
before they learn the value of it3 mysterious
esseuco. Through ignorance, excesses and
vices known at firat only totheniselvesthey
lay the foundation for profligate expendi
ture later on and oven while yet young his
nerves begin to bend, his system begins to
show tho bad effocta of his own follies and
ho awakens to a realization of tho fact that
he must havo help or perish.
It is to thisunfortunnto clas Ethat Dr. R.
A. Walker has devoted his life.
At his well-known sanitarium at
1411 Pennsylvania avenue, near Wil
lard's Hotel, ho may bo consnlted daily
rrom 9 a. m. to 5 p. m., and from 7
to 8 p. m.' on Wednesday and Saturday even
ings, and Sundays from 10 to 12. His work
covers all chronic, special and nervous dis
orders. Here is an opportunity for thatlargo
class of sufferers who have tried to get well
and have failed. Many consult a gonoral
practitioner and failing to get relier think
themselves Incurable. All muny such need
is the skill of a specialist. All such owe it
to themselves for the sake of friends, for
the sake of loved ones, for the sake of those
who are ormay become dependent oiitliem;
for the sako of tho future, whose mysterious
destiny still remains unrevealed, to do tho
duty that lies before them and make an
earnest erfort to get well, by consulting Dr.
Although his practice Is large and exten
sive and steadily increasing, and his time
is in constant demand, he has always firmly
adhered to his system of small fees; he never
makes a charge of any kind forconsultation,
examination or ndvico. This places the
wonderful benefit of Ins great skill within
the reach or all. In addition to the large
number of cullers ho sees daily, he yet finds
time to uuswer personally thu many letters
he constantly receives from out-of-town suf
rerers who seek his a.d or advice. Dr.
Walker makes it an iion-clad rule to only
accept for treatment thoie cases he KNOWS
he can cure; others aie candidly told their
condition and sent away.
In his specialty or nervous, brain, spinal,
andchronic diseases to which he hasdevoted
the past twenty-rour years of his life, he has
made a record unexcelled; as is attested by
the hundreds of autcgraph testimonials he
has on file frcm patients ho has cured.
Young or uitiilc-aged men tuffering from
the effects or their own follies, vices or ex
cesses, or men contemplating marriage who
are conscious of any in.Vedlmont or disquali

vigor and power declining should consult

The exercises were opened with prayer
by Dr. Sampson, after which the company
sat down to the music of the Y. M C. A.
orchestra, and a bountirul repast.
There wore several pleasant episodes in
the way of su rprises on the unwritten pro
gramme. Mr. Halley recited "The Royal Archer"
Prof. Hines was presented with an um
brella by Mr. Shepherd, an appropriate
speech being made' by donor and receiver.
Then Mr. Taskor. in his usual witty fashion,
presented Prof. Henry with a carving knife,
a fork and a sharpener. This called for a
speech in rosponso and it was neatly given.
President Williamson spoke briefly, but
pointedly and instructively, on the educa
tional department, and congratulated the
students on the present occasion and their
work of the year.
The certificates were next distributed by
Mr. W. S. Washburn, who took occasion to
speak on tho face value of the diploma and
the weight it would carry, as being from
such an excellent institution as the Y. M.
Field Secretary F. W. Lang was Intro
duced by Secretary Pugh, and made the boys
quite a neat little speech.
There was then a demand for Prof.
Sims, the athletic instructor, and he re
sponded, commenting on the excellent order
and conduct of tho young men during the
evening, and drawing from this the lesson
of the value or disciriiinc.
Prof. Hines .offqred a resolution to
the effect that the company was indebted

A GOOD MATCH RACE.
The match race was the outcome of a
claim that E. J. Downham had made to
the judges that Rciff had pulled Equity
in her race on Monday, when she was
beaten by both Logan and Little Mat.
The judges did not allow the claim, and
J. J. McCarferty, for whom Reiff rides,
orfered to bet $1,000 against $500 that
Logan could beat Equity.
The bet was mado and the horses ran a
very exciting dead heat. Many peoplo
thought that Equity beat Logan by a fchort

Keefc got the best of the start with Mable
Glen and cut out the running clear to the far
turn, where Oxford, a 20 to 1 Ehot, camo up

Paladin was a hot favorite in the fourth
race, and closed at G to 5. Copyright was
not much fancied, and receded from bis
