Clni-kMin,
'Tlio C'lnrkton deal wn tho event of
Midweek in baseball clicks. Its au
dacity is equaled only by Unit which
brought Kelly to IJOhton hist year.
But thcio is a diiTuronco between tho
tuQ.triUiiactions anil ur-scclng base
bull men perccivo it. As Al. Spalding
tersely t-ays: ".llostoii bought Kelly as
an rulvcitiHcmont, but Clarksoi) to
win games," and that is tlio way tho
majority of good judges will look ut
It. Clnrkson's acquisition means u
jpcatdcul for lloston. Ho will pluy
as ho novor did before, for he is de
termined to bring tho ponnant to Now
England if it i possible. That ho is
tho'best jnlchcr in tlio country, nil
things considered, few doubt. Tlioro
arc thoso who will cry "l'uoli,
an6thcr spurt like that last year
sind lloston will fall back whuio
It ibeJongs, fouith place 1" Weio
tho cncunistaiKCs tho s.tino
na thoy were Inst year It might
bo so. Hut tliey nio not. Theio
was constant friction then. Morrill
was manager, and Kelly, by virtuo of
his notoriety, was captain. This
double-headed inonstiosity never wiw
witisfnetory. It destioyod all liar
mofiious action and killed discipline.
There was continual Jealousy of Kelly
zunong Mori ill's fi lends and lm
patience nmong tho players at playing
second fiddlo to a man who was no
better ball rdayor than themselves.
It ijiiiM. bo confessed that Kelly did
not. add lustre to his fame by his pl.iy
ng.last year. He tins an ludlfforcnt
lleldcr. and diopped in his batting.
Men liko Johnston and 1 forming could
not but bo rcsti vo that Kelly should
bo tlio ono player on tho team, Hut
there is no need to hint at tho discon
tent, tho lack of discipline, and,
finally, tho utter demoralisation that
overtook tho nine. Thoy are well
known.
Thin year everything momiscs to
work lniimonioiisly. Morrill will he
rsiptnin and manager. Kelly will bo
treated like tho rest, with tho excep
tion that ho will bo a member of the
Mar '"WO.OOO battery," which will ho
udvcitlscd for nil that it is worth, nnd
t'lnrki-oii's position is so well estab
lished that there will ho libgnim
bling over any special honoispdd
liim. Then, too, tho wholo nine
know how ho an tho risk of being
black-) ibtcd in order to play with llos
Ion. Then, too. he lias won his asso
ciates' good will at tho btaitbydo-1
hiring that thoy aro a better nine
than Chicago. Thcio is not likely to
be uny petty jealousy in lloston this
K'iibon. Tlio old lchablcs have come
to llmo njid signed. An iiiciea.se of
$ 4,000 has been made in tho salaries,
and every disposition slionn by tho
management to bo liberal with tho
men. Willi such a state of affairs,
nothing but accident should keep
Jloston fiom the front this year.
TJie most hatLsfaetory nine in Uiq
Xenguo besides Boston appears to Iw
wsuiningion. ii is wen proviueusuui
lotteries, better than any nine, so far
astliooxporlonte in the eiuly spring
KiimeH lias demonstrated. Gilmoie,
O'Jl.iy, Daily and Whitney in tlio
box, Ueasley, Mack and Miuiaybo
liinjl the bat theso aio a lot that
would bo a cicdit to any nine. Shock
has picked up wondei fully in his bat
ting nnd tho outfield is as good ns
could be asked. O'Hiien is all right
if lie will always play his game, nnd
the only doubtful points nro second
nnd third base. Donnelly is an excel
lent third, nnd wore it not for his
weakness nt the bat, would certainly
j;o there permanently. Irwin covers
tlio base very creditably and is a bet
ter batter than Donnelly. Betwcon
Myers and Gardner the choice Of tho
majority w ill doubtless fall on the
former, for Gardner lias shown no
strength nt the bat And is no match
lor Myers on the base, Thoio is gioat
hainiony among the playeis. When
the Providence crowd wns dropped,
some excellent players, doubtless,
wererlet go. But with them on the
nino'thcrankof the club would never
have been raised. Fundi, Carroll,
Gilljgan, Shaw ami Hines, thoy are
all good, but Washington can play
better ball without them. The nine
is more evenly matched than last
year. The young blood will Infuse
roogo spirit into the baso miming,, n,
thimjiin which Washington was sadly
denciqntlntyoar. Tho inaiuigenient
iviHbomoie judicious, and better 10
wilts enn bo expected. Tho men mo
better satisfied. AVliitney, for one",
who signed on Monday and received
what ho wanted (Vl.000), will pitch
with moie hcait this year. The
younger pitchers, Gllraoiaand O'Day,
will hayemoro confidence in the box,
for tljvy Jvfll feel that they will ho
tflve'u .as good support as if 'Whitney
were pitching, somothing they could
not'bcfBUroof last year.
Although ono cannot udgo how
Washington will nieet n League loam
from, the work done in tho preliminary
oxbJbiUon grimes, yet the stylo of
playing of tho team van bo sci iittnicd
ana tho defects ascertained. Fhsl, it
in noticeable that tho base-running is
generally better than it was last year.
Doling the early games last year Tub
Crone repeatedly called the attention
of Manager Gaitncy to the fad that
the' 'nine was running babes very
jooily,iul urged tbat-espocial atten
tion begiven to its improvement ovon1
attho-uskof losing games. But tho
old manner of tilings went on. The
consequence was that dm lug tho
championship season any nine could
oivo Washington points on stealing
Wes, It is better this year, but
coud still bo improved. Second, tho
playing is moro intelligent. When a
babe iq 7c?t unguarded some ono at
once' covers it. On ft long hit to the
Held a Hue is pushed out to return the
ball, to tho diamond. In base-running
one liinncr will inaken feint to run
to attract tho ball in Ills diicctlon
that his cqinpanipn on tho bases may
bo given a chance for n steal.
TpCEQ are hist a few Instances
liahtjly noted during the games of the
past-week. They indicate that "team
work." and not "giaiid-stnnd play,"
is to be tlio distinguishing point in tho
nine this year,

not likoly to pay nny moro fancy

"dhlcld, jBVor, two bfirs of red, three

designated a star upon the Stars and

fievcral noted hcraldlo writers have in
'Sl'jttd that tho mullet should nltvoys bo

nolo in which the spurrowel turns.
Sometimes thero is, confusion between
tlio representation of mullets and stars,

Whilo tho English telegraph fiystom, is
conducted in tho interest of tho people,,
nnd 85 per cent, of tho messages arc Social
in character, in this country tho Western
Union system is Conducted for tllb benefit
of tho company, rather than public con
venience, and only 15 per cent, of tho busi
ness is social. Tho company would
rather carry a small business at high rates,
than a largo and diversified business at
low rates. Ho argued that tho-Westcrn

reflecting upomtlio subject must nrrivo at
tlio same conclusion as lilmself.
English Is entirely banished fiom the

in Gernian iu.Iangungo adapted to tho
student, nnd the words aro impressed up
on his mind through tho medium of weil

for ono lias all the advantages of hearing

DISTRICT SUFlcJlAGE.
An Inlonlow wltti Architect Mullctt
an tho' Subject,
'You aro reported as being hostllo to
tbb present form of government of this
District and anxious for n change. Is
this correct?1'
j'My position in this matter Is entirely
misunderstood and misrepresented. At
ndtimo sincollmvo resided in the Dis
trict havo its nflairs been administered,
in my judgment, with moro integrity or
fidelity. 1 havo no personal grievances
against tho District government or its
representative. I foe), on tho contrary,
giatlflcd that tho appointment of citizens
of this District ns Commissioners for tho
first time, has, in spito of tlio opposition
tllbrcto. proved to bo a success, and I do
not believe there is tho slightest ground
fo'r suspicion that tho boardas n board, or
that any member of tho board, as an In
dividual, has-noted from any but. tho best
arid purest motives, or that thoroisany
ground for the slightest charge of cor
ruption. "My objection to the present fonn of
Government arises from tho fnct that I
wis educated as an old-fashioned Jcffcr
sonlan. in tho doctrine that pcoplo are
capable of and entitled to self-govern-meilt.
It is not, therefore, a personal
question, but ono Involving my politi
cal creed and inv belief. I hold, as
did the founders or this Bcpublic, that
the right of tax-payors to representation
is an inalicnablo right of all'tax-pay-ere,
hnd so lone ns tho pcoplo of this
District nre dppiived of all voice in tho.
expenditures lor which thoy nro taxed,
that tho Government is unconstitutional
aud revolutionary. Tlio United States
should pay all bills which thoyincurorau
thorizo their representatives to Incur. I
held tothisbciiof when I was n member
of tho Board of Public Works audrcfused
as a consequence to sign a single assess
ment certificate, holding that I was a Fed
eral ofllccronly and could not therefore by
any act of mine, incur n liability on tho
behalf of tho citizens orthis District.
"Then you do not seem t6 be advocat
ing svBl rage?"
1 r,I am-in favoif of suflragc, but not Of a
sluimsufTrago that enables the paiipor.
tho loafer and the vagabond to control
tlio polls and drive away decent mon, and
also of a proper registry Jaw that will
protect tho ballot against such persons.
1 would prefer to submit to tho evils of
the present .system, entering, however,
my protcstrogalnstjtcsothatl shallnot
bo considered as consenting to any law
I deem unconstitutional."
