Washington Secures Its Klcventh Con
acoutlvo Victory How Its flatnea
Arc WonJnek Hopper' Itenellt
To.Nlglit Kentucky Derby To-Day,
Tho Waehlngtons lmtl no trouWo at
all in defeating tho Wllmlnglons yes
terday In an uninteresting iramc. The
visitors fielded miserably, anil could not
lilt the ball when It was needed, whllo
tho local team played a fault'csi game,
and hit Gllmoro's delivery all ovot tho
fltld. Galllgan was put lu for tho first
Inning, but tho Washington batters
easily solved his curves and Gltmoro
was subslltutcd. Very much to tho regret
of his friends he made n very poor
fchowlng. Wan after man was sent to
his baso on balls, four wild -pitches con
tributed their shato towards run-getting,
and when tho ball was put near .tho
plato It was vlciously.diivcn all over the
Jordan mado a remarkable fly catch,
and so did Coogan. OuUldo of theso
two plays tho gamo was dovold of In
terest. O'Brien was struck In tho head
with a pitched ball In the first Inning
and severely Injured. Ho will not bo
able to play for a few days.
-To-day the eavno clubs will play aqaln..
Tho local battery will bo McCoy and
Nicholas, whllo Btcln and Corcoran will
ofliclato for tho visitors.
Thero will be.but four more games
played by tho local team before it goes
on its long trip.
Saturday will witness tho last of tho
local games until Juno 10, and during
that time the team will play each club
in tho Association. It goes upon this
trip with a good working margin of tho
lead, and If any disaster .should befall
it, it would have to bo continuous to1
puttho club out of first place. Tho
fact Is readily becoming apparent that
tho club. Is out of Its class and too
strong for Its opponents. Yesterday it
won its eleventh 'Consecutive game, and
there is no reason why it should not
beat all previous records in this direc
tion and .win moro games without n de
feat than any other club has dono of
lato years. Tho men have rapidly
acquired tho valuable art of team
work, and although it is often out
batted yet it continues to mako moro
runs usually than it has hits. This has
followed because the men arc clever
base-runners and thoroughly under
stand how to shovo a man around tho
bases by good sacrifice hitting when it
becomes necessary. To this fact alone
is a great deal of its success due. Tho
pitchers nre.all in good trim and play
ing crcat ball, and whllo there arc some
who believe that tho team should have
another twirler in reserve, yet the policy
of having too many pitchers some
times proves disastrous. It Is time,
ihough, to cross a bridge when you
como to it, and it will be time enough
to get other pitchers when the present
ones arc disabled.
Very few people-in commending tho
success of the team glvo the credit to
the persons to whom it belongs. "When
Ted Sullivan took charge he had secured
a number of individual good players,
who were Btrangers to each others "stylo
of play, and it became'his duty to weld
ibe men together and. make them team
workers. This he has dono in much ths
same manner as he did tho old St Louis
Browns. Every play that ,is likely to
occur, or every play which suggests it
self to the ingenuity of tho manager is
practiced at the morning practice, and
the result is that when such a play
comes up in a game the men kmow just
what to do.
It is seldom they are thrown on their
own resources, so to speak. So it Is in
batting. Each man Is told what to do
when he goes to the bat, and when
there is a man on first or second tho
play is made up on tho bench. By this
means head work cuts a bigger element
in the success of the team than most
ppoplo give it credit for. "Whatever the
team does toward winning the pennant
will bo the result of Ted Sulltvau'sJ
labors, and to him the credit belongs.
The attendance at tho grounds ls.be
ginlng to pick up. Popple are begin
lug to realize that wo not only havo a
"good team, but that tbegrounds aro not
so Incligibly located as they thought.
"When one speaks of Seventeenth and
U streets to a man on tho aveuue,
visions of borne point near tho District
line arise and an hour's prospective
ride to leach tho park. For this reason
a great many people have remained
away because they thought the distance
was too far, but after one visit, if they
can be induced to take that visit, tho
fallacy is removed. As a matter of
fact the grounds are. about as near to
the centre of the city as the old one
and it docs not take any longer to reach
them, while the accommodations far
surpass tliose at Capitol Park,
Tho Baltimore American several days
ago said that "wo aro now in second
place and a few consecutive games will
put us in first place." The able writer
for that paper apparently left out of his
calculations the Washington team.
"What did bo think It was going to do?
"Was It to be beaten thattho prldo of
tho Monumental City should step Into
flist place? Well, hardly. The Haiti
mores hayo had a, few consecutive
games, but alas they have been defeats,
and such defeats. Why .every hair of

A SCENE OF THE WAR,
A Captain "Who Hauled Down
Fine to Save nia Cargo.
Fiom the Xew York Star.
Captain Robert Watson Fuller, an
old-time commander of Amei loan sail
ing vessels, died In Brooklyn yesterday,
at the residence of his son-in-law, John
Gay, thepubllsher, 1121 Bergen street.
Captain Fuller was in his 93d year.
The last ship ho commanded, tho sail
ing vessel Metropolis, was seized and
burned by General Butler at New Or
leans during tho civil war. Tho Me
tropolis was loading at Now Orleans
when the war broke out and was seized
by the Confederates. She was re
leased upon condition that her captain
would haul down the Stars and Stripes
and replace them with Dixie's flag.
This he consented to do In order to save
1 ship and cargo.
, After he got out of tho Mississippi
River and into the Gulf of Mexico ho
j fell in with a Federal cruiser, which
promptly slezed the Metropolis as a
prize. Captain Fuller's cxplantfon as
to why the stars and bars flew at his
i masthead was unsatisfactory to the
I Union authorities, so the Metropolis was
burned. The identical flag which was
lowered at the request of tho Confeder
ates will be burled with Captain Fuller,
In accordance with his last wishes. It

A Visit to the Old Houso In which Ho
Had Ills Ilendqnnrters In 18U1.
Colonel Baxter Smith contributes tho
following recital of n recent Interesting
reminder of tho early days of tho war,
which Is an entertaining pen plcturo of
tho cmjncnt Confederate:
Having ibcen called to Bowling Green,
Ky., piofesslonally, a fow days ago, I
was Invited to dinner by Judge Du
lahcy, with whoih I had business. Upon
reaching' his residence upon one of tho
principal streets of tho city, tho sur
roundings seemed quite familiar to mo.
I paused a. moment nnd looked around,
and as I did so I recognized tho house
in which Gencrnl Albert Sldnoy John
ston had his headquarters during his
occupancy of Bowling Green nnd that
part of Kentucky, from September,
1801, till the middle of February, 1802.
I had not seen tho houso slnco shortly
before General Johnston's evacuation,
but It looked as natural as when I last
saw It, time having dealt gently with it.
It is nn unpretending, old fashioned
brick structure, ono story, with a base
ment, tho upper story being reached by
stono steps. In tho basement General
Johnston had his headquarters, and It
was from thero that orders wero Issued
of tho most momentous character relat
ing to tho movement of troops In his
department. Tho room was plain arid
plainly furnished when ho occupied It.
It was my fortune to havo a good deal
of business with General Johnston
whllo stationed there. Ho was a grand
man grand in appearance, grand in
character and in all tho qualities
necessary for a military chieftain. Mr.
Davis Is said lo have regarded him as
tho gteatest of his generals. But, great
as ho was, thero was no man moro ap
proachable. On ono occasion, late at night, and
after I had finished my business with
him, I asked General Johnston about
his Utah expedition, nnd ho conversed
freclybout it. Knowing that ho was
then iti tho cavalry service, and being
in that scrytco myself, I ventured to
ask him what branch of the servlco ho
preferred. Ho replied, the cavalry. He
then spoke about tho great efficiency of
mat arm oi tno service, it properly
drilled and handled, laying great stress
on the drilling.
Being a young officer, without mili
tary education or experience and, ns ho
seemed to take an interest in mc, I
asked him if ho would not put his sug
gestions In writing in tho form of a
letter addressed to mc, In order that I
might navo tlio ucneilt or. tuern in a
permanent form. This he readily con
sented to do, and wroto thorn witli his
own hand, which proved to be of great
service, and was n real vade mceum to
While at Judge Dulaney's he related
to me a very Interesting incident In tho
life of General Johnston that I had
nover heard before, ,11c said that ho
had heard It from his father, who had
commanded a troop In the Black Hawk
war in tho Northwest, Johnston was
then a lieutenant, and was thrown with
his command in an encounter with tho
Indians in a field or prairie, in which
there was very high grass. Thclndians
wero concealed, and; suddenly spring
ing from their ambush, drovo back tho
When the latter rallied at a point of
rendezvous, it was found that two of
the paity wero missing, a Swiss soldier
whose hoiso had gone back with the
troops, and Lieutenant Jphnston. Tho
wiiue iroops returned to iook tor uicm
'and found, the Swiss, but could seo
nothing of Johnston or his horse. At
this juncture, the Swiss suggested that
he canicd a whistle in his pocket, and
after going a short distance, he blew it,
maklnc a bird like noise. When this
was done, Johnston, who was at a dis
tance, raised his head above tho tall
grass, discovered tho troops and joined
them. When the Indians mado their
attack, they killed Johnston's horse,
and he escaped by concealing himself
'in the grass, and eluding the wlley sav
ages, and his life was thus saved.
