' r1 A ft fi I ' IS GENERAL SPORTING GOSSIP HOW THE NEW BASE UALL CIAJtt IS COMING ON. Mr. Scnnlon Scorns to Mo Doing; Very Well The Fnrk is All Right Tho Iionguo Reserve Iiist Talk of the Clubs. Mr. Michael Scaulou is doing admirably with his now base-ball venture, without any re served list to commence with, without any players pledged to his agreement, ho has sont his emissary out and tho returns have been most gratifying, as already ho has signed n constella tion that cannot help being a success here. Ho has engaged players that other clubs were after, and to show how strong they are wo glvo below tho average of tho men. In this list is included Donovan, tho great centre-flelder of the Bostons of last season, who it is pretty certain will play here. Ho led the country -at centre-field last year and is a great player. O'Brien and Ma guire, tho battery that is practically secured, though as yet unsigned, are not included. By comparing this list it will be seen that tho men show up remarkably strong, and will naturally improve somewhat this season. Tho list is as follows: Batting. Ftclding. Bcocher, l.f 1502 .880 McQuery, lb 295 .97G Hatlleld 277 .SSO Vlsnor 260 .914 Donovan 250 .037 Smaller 254 .80S Bakeley , 248 .950 Dunlap t 200 .SSS The Permit Granted. The District Commissioners have decided that tho application of tho National Base Ball Club for a permit to erect a grand stand and seats at tho National Park is lawful, and they have ac cordingly directed Inspector Entwistlo to give tho permit to tho contractor, Mr. Dunn. Dr. C. M. Purvis, of Freedman's Hospital, appeared before tho Commissioners on Friday and areucd against tho Issuing of tho permit, but as ho had no good grounds on which to base his argument his opposition was unavailing. Col. w. A. Cook appeared in behalf of tho ball club. En gineer Commissioner Roberts was very emphatic In saying that there was no valid reasons for withholding a permit and it should be given, to which Commissioner Ross quickly assented. Work will commence in earnest Monday, and the contractor will push it until it is finished. Manager Trott last week signed McQuery to play first-base and Visner to play in the right Held and change catcher. Both are regarded as star engagements. Big McQuery, as his as sociates call him, is remembered' here best as a member of the Kansas City team, his hard hit ting and clever fielding calling forth more praise than any other player. He is a grand batter and a speedy base runner, while he has a rather mean habit, to batsmen, of stopping seemingly 6afe hits over in his direction. Visner is a clever back-stop and a No. 1 fielder, and in securing him to play right-field Manager Trott has got a first-class man. He is a hard hitter, a sure catch, and one of the longest throwers in the professon and has often cut ofE runs from the field to home-base. Hoy, despite his reported engagement with the Cincinnatis, last week signed to Dlay with the Athletics of Philadelphia. We protest against this style oE work. Hov bv rlcht be longed to the club of this cit-, and our Na tional people should demand his services. If thoy are going to allow the other organizations to walk over them they do not deserve support; that is, if tho 6tories given out by themselves in regard to promises made by the League to them have any foundation in fact. Hoy is just tho man needed to cement our strong out-field, and a fight 6hould be made for him. With Buck Ewlng at the head of the New York Leaeue Club and Johnnie "Ward at the head of tho Brooklyn League team tho rivalry between the two cities thecoming season will be very great. The schedule committee of the National League and American Association are at work. It will be difficult to please all the magnates, as all are looking for plums in the shape of holidays. Fred Dunlap has been heard from again and ho has signed to captain and play second-base lor the Washington team next season. Wash ington has in the past been a good base-Dall city and surrounded by good players. Dunlap ought to restore tho game to what It was be fore. Boston Democrat. Hueh Daily, the one-armed pitcher who was with the Cleveland League team some years ago, is getting himself into trim. Ho wants to try his hand at the business again and see if he cannot bother some of the heavy sluggers as he did some years ago. Beecher, who dono good work for the Buffalo Brotherhood team, will be a good man for the wasmngton team next season, where he has signed to play. Boston Democrat. Mr. G. A. Lyon, of tho Star, is now doing the Sporting Xicwork from this city. It goes without saying that tho work will be brilliantly done. Tho opening game will take place on Mon day, March 80, but with whom it is not known as yet. George Keefe, the East Washington boy, has signed a contract to play on tho Nationals next season. Kcefo is one of the best pitchers in America when ho is in condition. While he was with the Washlngtons and Buffalos he made a splendid record. Tom Daly, tho great catcher, said he was the best left-hand pitcher in America, and would, with proper coaching, bo without a peer. Ho pledged his word to Di rector Scanlon to live up to every agreement. The Washington players who are to become members of tho Natloual Club have received orders to report here on March 15, Tho contract for tho erection of the grand stands, fences, etc., for tho National Park has been awarded to Mr. James R, Dunn, tho same gentleman who in past seasons erected the ones at Capitol and Atlantic Parks. Tho prJco named in tho contracts is nearly $10,000, and It is stipu lated that the work must be finished in time for preliminary practice. Mr. Dunn generally does his work in an acceptable manner. It is now said that Bassett will cover Balti more's second-base. Pittsburg wants Bas6ett also and has the best chance of getting him, he be ing a League player. Manager Trott has telegraphed that ho has signed Bakeley, tho great pitcher of tho Cleve land League and Players' League teams, to play here next season. It is the first part of tho bat tery end secured for the team, and every one admits that it is a grand beginning. Bakeley has a magnificent record, both as a pitcher and batsman. At a meeting held February 9, 1891, tho Waverleys, a club composed of ex-professional and semi-professional players,wero permanently organized. Tho club intends to ..take short trips and play all tho local clubs of Hie. su'rround Intr country. Tho following players have signed: Kebstock, Bishop, Fogarty, Lackey, Winkle man, W. Gordon, Connor, Hennessy, J. Gor don, and Malone. Mr. Georgo F. Smith, of the City Post Office, has the management, to Whom all communications should be addreeed. Tho Brooklyn League team are tho first to se cure dates for this city. They will play hero on April 9, 10, and 11. Tho Bostons, FNew Yorks, and Pitt6burgs have written for dates, but Manager Trott has not closed with them as jet. BASE BAIili. The Rescrvo List Troublo Abend Swcnr Ing DlroVonjjoanc.

Re leased, McCormlck,.Beck, Conway, and Morris. President Thurmau is to hold his position for only ono year and is to bo succeeded by Mr. Rogers who after a like term will give way to Mr. Kraithoff. Tho base ball board of control this afternoon rendered a number of decisions in cases in which two or more clubs claimed the services of a player. Louis Bierbauer was a member of the Athletic club of Philadelphia in 1SS9, but went over to the Players' League when it was formed. When tho frauchiso reverted to tho Association, his name was .omitted in some way from tho re served list. Pittsburg was quick to take advan tage and signed Bierbauer. Injsumming up, tho board said: 'Undoubtedly tho Pittsburg Club has the legal right to the man, but morally it has not. It ought to withdraw its claim: but as it does not we must reluctantly decide in favor of Pittsburg. The case of H. G. Stovoy was ex actly the same as that of Bierbauer, except that ho was claimed by Boston, and the board was compelled to decide in favor of Boston. Tho slap administered to these clubs in these cases was a severe one. Connie Mack was given to Pittsburg. He was claimed by tho Boston As sociation Club. St. Louis was given Denny Lyons over the rival claims of Chicago. Tho board also adopted a classification of leagues and associations based on the salaries paid, tho number of clubs, and tho population of their cities. It is proposed that a club in any class may hire any player from a lower class associa tion by payinir an indemnity to tho club ho is drawn from." Tho Bierbauer-Stovey decision did much to dissipate the feeling of brotherly lore and fel lowship which until this afternoon has appar ently characterized the meeting of the base-ball magnates. Following the decision managers Bar nie, of the Baltimores, and Irwin, of the Philadel phias, will be pulling their hair and swearing dire vengeance. According to the statement the great hoard of control is of no earthly good and does not know its business. In this connection it is an interesting fact that Mr. Kraithoff, one. of the members of the board of control, filed a supplement to the decision intimating that if the matter of dispute took place since February, the date of the present national agreement, the result would have been different. He says there was no jurisdiction to enforce an equity under the former national agreement, and adds that the jurisdictional question is not likely to present itself a second time. Irwin and Barnio were busily engaged tho balance of tho afternoon in buttonholing every other representative of the Association clubs. To say that there is only a small amount of dissat isfaction expressed by tho Association clubs ig putting it lightly. Especially are thoy angry at the action of the president of tho board of control, who, while still president of the Amer ican Association, voted against the Athletics and the Bostons. They threatened to get their rights by common law, though it is probable that Mr. Thurman was thoroughly posted on the law in the case when he cast his vote. There is nevertheless a clause in the na tional agreement which 6ays all disputes shall bo judged in equity. If this clause holds good, and Irwin, Barnie, and several others claim it is the law by which matters ought to be settled It is possible the decision of tho board may bo changed. The Association people say it will bo reversed. Mr. Thurman says it will not. Mr. Thurman was very wrathy at some of the remarks let drop by tho Association men, He was greatly excited when he was met by A. C. Spalding in the hall on tho third floor of the hotel. In a loud voice, trembling with passion, he related to Mr. Spalding what tho Association saiu or Mr. uowen and. others. "If they make anyfuss over this matter or dis pute the fairness of our decision," ho declared, "I'll leave the Association and resign from tho board." Mr. Spalding hurried away and saw every member of tho Association and endeavored to quiet them, which to at least seme extent he did. The board adjourned subject to tho call of the chairman and tho members are now on tho way home. Tho Western Association com pleted its business to-night by adopting the schedule prepared by tho new committee. ROWING AND ATHLETICS. On Saturday evening the Columbias will civo their usual fortnightly athletic exhibition. Capt. Stinemetz is arranging an entirely new programme. He will do away with tumbling, vaulting, and tho flying rings, and will have nothing but sparring and wrestling, in which tho best talent of "tho club will take part. Among the sparrers will be Dickinson, Irwin, CarterT Green, Maguire, Wells, Runnier, Dash iell, Webb, Freyhold, Brown, Walsh, Sprig man, and others, while tho wrestlers will bo from among Kerr, Oliver, Mitchell, Lewis, Blount, Jannus, Duke, Shafhirt, and others. The Potomac Athletics will give their fourth exhibition ou Friday evening next at their quarters, Seventeenth street and Pennsylvania avenue. The musical part of tho programme is being arranged by Mr. J. G. Traylor and will be excellent. The athletic pari will embrace sparring, wrestling, and fencing, In which tho most scientific men will appear, Admission will only bo on invitation of members. Tho committee hopes to mako it more interesting than their last affair, which was undoubtedly tho finest ever held in this city. Bobby Elder, of tho C. A. C, who injured bis arm at the last exhibition, hopes to have it in condition for the next. Fuller, who formerly pitched for the Wash ington League team, has been elected a member of tho C. A. C, and will play with their ball team next summer. Ho presented affidavits from the managers of the old Washington club, 6aying that ho never received a penny for his service while on their team. He will bo a big addition. There Is a young amateur 6parrer named Bateinan in Georgetown whom tno Potomacs will probably secure for their organization. Ho i6 a perfect hurricane of a fighter aud weighs in at 116 pounds only. The New York Sun had a long article in its columns recently golmj for the athletes of Phil adelphia. It chargeu them with unfairness, selfishness, and lack of all sportsmanlike man ners toward visitors to their meetings. This bears out tho statements mado by visitors from this city to recent affairs. Tho Navy is for Philadelphia all tho tlmo, and a visitor has got to win decidedly ero ho gets the medal. Wesley Cook, tho champion 120-pound youngster of tho District, and ono of tho most oxport sparrers for points, will tako part in tho Potomacs' ontcrtainment on Friday night. John Irwin, tho heavy champion of tho C. A. C, is fast recovering his old form, and when ho gets thero again ho intonds to mako some of thoso who disputo his titlo run to tho corn or. John is not only scientific, but a gentleman sparrer all tho time. Tho Middle State Regatta Association will givo their big affair this year ou July 4. This will conflict with tho People's rogatta ou tho Schuylkill, which tho Middlo States' pcoplo aro inclined to combat. Tho rowing men of tho C. A. C. have com menced, undor tho caro of Capt. Stinemetz, to get in shapo for tho time to launch their craft. Thoy aro now doing "gym" work to re duce their surplus llegh. It is expected that about fifty men will try to got in tho various crows this summer. Lieut. Kennedy, of tho Aual'ostans, boliovcs that his club will put out a junior crow this summer that will do justico to tho organization. Thoy havo a now four-oared shell, and tho ma terial at hand is tho best tho club has over had. Tho Potomac Athlotics that Is, tho progres sive members of tho organization aro thinking of getting up a first-class athletic entertainment at ono of tho theatres, tho proceeds of which aro to go toward purchasing tho steam launch that is to run betweontheir house aud tho athletic grounds during tho summer. Thoy hold that ouough local talent can bo secured to assist that from Philadelphia and Now York to mako it a big success. At tho entertainment on Saturday ovening next of tho Columbia Athlotics, for tho first time, a uumbor of outside athlotes will tako part. Amone thoso who will officiate is Mr. Charlc3 A. Glazier, tho skillful and scientific heavy-weieht sparrer of tho Warren Athletic Club, of Wilmington, Del. Ho has a splendid record, aud will bo put up against DicKlnson. Among others who will como will bo H. Walter Schlccntor of the Schuylkill Navy, a promising light weight, a companion of champion Rocap. He will spar with Freddy Maguire. Horso Races Yesterday.
