THE WASHINGTON TEAM'S FIRST CON TEST AVITH A LEAGUE TEAM. Tho Approaching; I'ormnl Opening of tho Now nnd Beautiful Columbia Club Houbc "What tho Rowing Clubs are Do ingSome Amateur Base-Ball Nows. The Washlngtons made their first appearance against a League team on Thursday last, and to the ono thousand spectators who assembled in I the rain to see the contest, they gave abundant proof that they were a splendid aggregation of i ball-tossers. The game lasted six innings, and ' resulted In a draw, the score being 2 to 2, though j tho errors of O'Brien and Bird caused the loss i to Washington. The home team fielded ad mirably, and at critical times gave several exhl- I bitions of play that caused enthusiasm among the spectators. They ran the bases well, Jor- ' dan especially distinguishing himself by bis , daring steals, and as a whole played excellently. Al. Myers, who now fills second-base for the Phillies, said that he was surprised at the show ing of the Senators. "Judgine by tho game they are playing against us to-day," lie said, "they are a mucli better team than tho one of last year." Al. ought to know, as he played with the Washlngtons last year. The Atlantic Association teams have more than held their own with the League and Amer ican Association clubs. The Cabinet and every branch of the Govern ment was represented in the grand stand. Mace was yesterday grauted his release by tho Washlngtons. This looks like a mistake. Capt. Gleason has got the boys In good shape, and everything Is working harmoniously, They play ball from the start, and put up the liveliest game ever shown here by a local organization. Secretary Braden, of the Atlantic Association, is out with a card, In which he contrasts the old American Association with the present At lantic, and proves conclusively that tho latter is the better of the two. This conclusion Is un questionably correct, for In the many games so far played between the three leading associa tions of the country tho Atlantic Association has won a majority of the contests. Patrons of the sport will see better ball in Washington this year than ever before, simply becauso the clubs are evenly matched. Jordan is a runner from way back. Atlantic Park Is going to be a big success. The Columbia Athletics made their first ap pearance Wednesday, and, despite the fact they were beaten by tho Lafayette College boys, they made a favorable impression on the spectators. There is plenty of good material in the team. "What tho club needs at present is a good pro gressive coach. This drawback was noticeable in the opening nioie than auything else. Sov . eral times chauces offered to advance basc-ruu-nets by sacrifice hits or bunts, hut unfortunately there was no ono to coach them on this point, for every batsman deemed It his duty to attempt tho feat of knocking the ball out of the lot, which ended generally in his fanning the air. "When this fault is overcome and tho men settle down to club plays, instead of devoting them selves to their own private records, they will bo a very successful organization. In Dickinson they have a splendid catcher, as good as mo6t professionals, Burke and Sprigman are excel lent pitchers. Green, Bolway,and Koy worth are good inflelders, tho latter especially showing up strong at third-base. King did well In left, thotujh Harban and Frye seemed somewhat rusty as Elders. When Butterworth, WellB, and QXtiil take their place on the team there is every reason to hope that the men will play bet ter team work. O'Neil is a good player, while Pat Wells, as soon a6 he returns fromLafayettc College, will make a splendid assistant to Dick inson as catcher. Mastcrof Athletics Stlnemetz and Manager Hanson should feel elated over the first game of their club. They made a credit able appearance in their handsome Spaulding uniforms, which Mr. M. A. Tappau made for them. The Columbia Athletics will play the Ariels on Monday on the grounds of the club on Ana lo6tan Island. On Thursday they play the Georgetown College team. The Hartfords are handicapped somewhat by the illness of several of their best players. Thoy will be here on Monday. A straight fence is needed for a backstop, as tho ball hits in the angle and goes oil into the field, thus delaying the game considerably. Mace, the Washington boy who is pitching for the home team, has shown up In better 6hapc than even his friends anticipated. Jack Kiddle has shown that he is a splendid catcher and able to fill tho bill in any emer gency. The programme of championship games for the present week is as follows: Monday and Tuefaday, Hartfords; Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, New Havens, and on Saturday the Jer sey Citys. The Hiawathas will reorganize for the season of 1800 with the following players: Knltzy, Garner, Evcrs, Wise, Ryan, Taylor, Graff, Koe ner, McGec, Armbrose, and Houghtallng, Veteran Manager Harry Wright says the Washlngtons are much strouger than "he im agined and that there are several on the team ho would like to get, notably Hill at third, Jordan at left, Baderat centre, and Kiddle, the catcher. Manager Barnle says the team is no good nnd that one of his men is worth five of tho Washlngtons, A newly discovered mana ger, Metzgcr by name, of the Richmonds, says the same. Manager Selee, of tho Bostons, says Washington is tho strongest. Now tho public can place tho opinlous of the two Leaguers against Barnle and Metzger, and judge for themselves. For the first appearance tho Columbia Ath letics did not rally round their team as has been the custom in the past. At tho gamo on Wed nesday there were less than seventy-five people on tho ground. More encouragement Is needed. When Keefe and Halllgan are tho battery for the Buffalo team every man is a left-handed batsman, the first time 6uch a thing has ever happened in a base-ball team.

The national executive committee of Amateur Oarsman held an important meetlug on Monday evening lust at the Ollsey House, New York. Lake Qulnslgamond, near "Worcester, Mass., was selected us tho regatta placo on August 12 and 111. Tho several scullers, Rogers, Carney, and others, who were disqualified at Boston la6t year for competing again6t a professional, wero reinstated. The oiler of a prize for a sculling dash of a quarter of a mile was accepted from Mr. St. John, of St. Lous, and this stylo of race will be added to tho events at tho regatta this year. Tho formal openinu of tho new home of tho Columbia Athletics, on O street near Seven teenth street, will take placo on Friday evening next, and will be a gala affair in every respect. The programme hitherto published in Tun HiuiAi.i) will be carried out. It is expected that of tho four thousand invitations issued for tho event more than one-half will be present to wit ness tho opening and inspect the magnificent decorations and fittings of the imposing build ing. Tho full Marino Baud, under the direc tion of Professor Sousa, will be on hand, and will play several new airs composed in honor of tho occasion. The Harlem regatta will take placo on Dec oration Day, and one of the novelties will be a junior eight-oared race. All races will be one rallo straightaway. The race for the Now York Herald cup for eight-oarcd shells takes place on May 31, and is to be rowed over a two mile course. The new eight-oared shell that Capt. Zapponc, of the Potomacs, has ordered from Waters fc Co., of Troy, N. Y., will bo mado on tho samo model as that of last year's Yale Collece boat. It is to be supplied with all of Davis's latest rig, and will be modem in every particular. The first big rowing race of the year takes place on May 2-1 between the Yalo College 'Var sity eight and tho champion eight of the Ata lanta Club, of New York. It will bo four i miles and the course is over New Haven Bay. The Patapsco Navy, of Baltimore, have elected Dr. D. II. Barclay as commodore. Ho is a prominent member of the Ariel Club, and Is a single sculler of some credit. The Navy has se lected June 25 for their annual regatta. Psotta, who is to race for the diamond sculls at tho Henley regatta, is training for tho event at Cornell College under Charley Courtney. He is confident he will win the sculls this time.

It is rather aggravating to the lovers of aquatic sports In this viclnitv to read of arrance- ments making by tho Patapsco Navy, Schuyl l kill Navy, Passaic River Association, Harlem Association, and tho .Middle State Rowing As sociation for their annual regattas, aud no movo of the kind in this locality. With tho best facil ities for rowing in America, with three as good clubs as exist, it is too bad that somethlnir Is not done in tho matter. Work on the now athletic grounds of tho Potomac Athletics commenced on Thursday. Ono of tho features will bo a perfect quartor mllo track aud a stralght-away 220-yard course. On tho field alone tho club will expend $1,000. Jimmy Green, a graduate of the Manhattans and Jaspers, of Now York, is ono of tho best all-around athletes In the Columbia Athletic Club. Ho is not their best ball-player, but as a sprinter, wrestler, and sparrer ho 6tands way up near the top. Tho Analostans are rapidly fllllng up tho racks of their pretty house with pleasure boats aim shells, i no members aro very enthusiastic, and It wouldn't bo surprising to seo a call sont out by this club for a joint local regatta. Tho Old Dominions, of Alexandria, intend making a move this year, and if tho Washington clubs get up a regatta thoy will enter a gig crow. Thoy will probably race at Baltimore on tho 25th of Juno. Governors Elmore and Sawyer aro working very hard over the now grounds of tho Poto macs, and aro anxious to get them In shape for the men by next Saturday. THE TURF. Dorby Spring Sleeting.

Tho new cutter Iverna, owned by Mr. Jameson, was launched at South ampton to-day. Mr. Jameson denies that ho has sent a challenge to tho Now York Yacht Club for a raco for tho America's cup. Tho Iverna, ho says, was not designed to raco in America,; though sho may do so when her powers aro tested. Tho Field, referring to the report that a yacht Is being built to raco for tho America's cup, says that nothtug will bo done In tho matter until autumn. Tho same paper declares that tho drawings of tho now cutter Irex, published In Boston, aro bogus, and that the dimensions of tho yacht given In that publication aro more guesswork. Georgetown Athletic Notes. Tho Georgetown 'Varsity base-ball team has opened its season, and time far has made a fair showing. Great trouble is experienced in getting tho propor amount of practlco out of all tho players on account of tho departments being situated in different parts of tho city. However, this will soon bo overcome, as every player will bo required to practice a certain amount of time every day, On Wednesday last tho Alerts, who claim tho championship of tho District, played with tho Varsity nine, and wore completely 6hut out. At tho end of tho gamo the score stood 11-0 In favor of Georgetown. The Alerts found it im possible to hit Shoemaker. Ho was well sup ported by Rackly. The playing of C. Gleason on first and W. Gleason on 6ccond and the homo runs of Hennon aud Shoemaker wero features. lu justice to the Alerts it should bo said that they only had fivo of their regular team, On Thursday tho 'Varsity nine- crossed bats with the crack Lafayette College boys, aud wero defeated by a scoro of 11 to 1. The George town boys as a rule failed to solve tho decop tivo curves of March, A gamo will bo played on Tuesday, April 22, against Kendall Green on tho Georgetown Col lego grounds. Scene on a B. & O. Sleeping-Cur. A young sportive passenger invites several fellow-passengers to join in a gamo of euchre. Four-handed gamo made up; cards called for; the sorter supplies them. Flay continues dur ing an hour or two. Bedtime arrives; gamo closes. Young sportive passenger refuses to pay for the cards; disputes with the polite porter, who appeals to tho conductor. Y. S. V. not only persists in refusal to pay, hut offen sively swears at conductor for "interfering." During the unseemly colloquy, another of tho players, in tho interest of peace and good order, offers to pay for the cards, but Y. S. P. yields ungracefully, pays tho porter, and, with an oath, threatens to "get even" by "licking" tho conductor the first time ho catches him off his car. At end of tho journey Y. S. P. leaves the train unhonored by his fellow-passengers, and s lost In the crowd. And the conductor still lives. Supreme Court Building Bill Passed. On motion of Mr. Morrill the Seuatc bill authorizing tho purchase of a site for a build ing for tho accommodation of the Supremo Court of tho United States (tho square directly east of tho Capitol, aud corresponding with the new library site) was taken up yesterday; and Mr. Morrill mado a statement in which he mentioned the cost at about $000,000, and spoke of tho importance of obtaining It at onco and of erecting a building on It in harmony with the dignity and power of tho Supremo Court. He alluded to tho desirability of having In the central part of tho Capitol tho painted sandstone material replaced by white marble. Ho might not live, ho said, to seo that accom plished; but there wore many Sonators present who would. Tho bill was passed without further discussion aud without a division. The Statue of Gen. R. ,E.
