F.Vnntfl 1 - W' THESUNDAY HERALD.SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22. 1S91. 1- Wn! 4 i) SPORTS OF TUB WEEK. A NIGUTOF SPARKING AND WBEST I.1NG AT THE C. A. C. TJio Exhibition Enjoyed by 11 no Audi cnco Tho Unno-ltnll Difficulties Sharp Criticism of Thurinan-Getting tho Now Groumln In Shnpc. Tho Columbia Athletic club-houeo was packed to overflowing last night, tho occasion of the regular fortnightly athletic meeting. Tho usual gymnastic exercises were omitted, and tho house committee instead arranged a programme of wrestling and sparring. Tho change was well received by tho guests. Tho ofllcer of tho even ing was Mr. William B. Illbbs, while Bobby Eider acted as referee of wrestling and Georgo French that of snarrintr. with Dr. Kerr, of the Warren Club, of Wilmington, ond Bobby Brewster as Judges. Tho various events were well contested. Tho events of tho evening were as follows: Hcavy-wcicbt snarrinc Mr. Van llook and Leroy Taylor. Tho latter had trained for tho event, but was outclassed from tho start, as Van Hook showed decidedly tho most science, and was awarded tho bout. Feather-weight wrestling Messrs. Tyler and Baldwin. This was an interesting alfair and after fifteen minutes' hard work it was declared in favor of Tyler, though no fall was made. Little Baldwin resisted all efforts to throw him, and as Tyler did tho most work ho got tho affair on points. Light-weight sparring Jimmy Green and Freddy Maguirc. A splendid exhibition, the clean hitting of Maguire being much admired. Green did some good work, out Maguirc dis played more agility and generally got out of reach. Iu tho second round Magulro struck Green on the neck and came near settling him. Maguire eot it on points. Wrestling Dr. Korr and Mr. Blount. The former weighed 135 pouudB, tho latter 154, but tho tussle was evenly contested, but in 4:40 Blount got tho fall. Light-weight sparring George; Carter and Bobby Elder. This was ono of the cleverest performances of tho evening, the fine work of Carter being greatly admired. His hitting and getting away was the prettiest work of tho evening, and there wa6 considerable surprise expressed when the bout was declared a, draw. The last event of tho evening was a bout be tween Fltzsimmons and Fielden, two young dis ciples of Analostan Island, cared for by Tomaso O'Nell. Tho two kids gave a lively exhibition of sparring. The judges made no decision in the match. It was expected that Mitchell, of the C. A. C, would be hero to wrestle in last night's exhibi tion, but he was called away on business to Al teon a, Pa. The Washington Light Infantry CorpR have organized a first-class athletic club, and intend to take a placo among the organizations of tho country. They will organize a base-ball team and apply for admission to the Amateur Ath letic Union, and the team may play for the championship. Tho club will be composed of some of tho best talent in this vicinity. We wish the soldier boys success in their new ven ture. Jllnmy llanington is developing into a sparrer of the first order and will make it warm for his associates in the Potomacs. Clinton Smlthson, the sculler, Is Professor Carciofini's promising pupil, and it looks as if ho will prove a great man in the middle class. Messrs. O. P. Schmidt and G. M. Fague, of the Potomac Athletics, leave for New York to day to uttend the meeting of tlie Athletic Union. The Potomac Athletics have made all the ar rangements for their musical and athletic ex hibition on Saturday evening next at their club house. It will be made Interesting by some choice singing, an exhibition of Icgeidemain by a prominent naval officer, instrumental music, and a trcatinthe way of athletics. Leroy Taylor, of tho C. A. C, Is rapidly com ing forward as an athlete, and has already shown what he could do as u member of the tug-of-war team. He is now taking private lessons from a sparring teacher, and expects to do a lot of the would-be knockers out. The joint committee of the clubs in relation to the National regatta are quietly sounding the public on the Bubjcct, and from what can be learned they are thoroughly satisfied with the outlook. It Is more than probable that at the meeting next week a formal invitation will be sent to the N. A. A. O. to como here. This is the proper spirit to show. Isn't It time tho Columbia Athletics and their neighbors, tho Potomac Athletics, got together and made some arrangements about tho organi zation of the amateur league of base-ball clubs ? This is the timo for such work, and tho two clubs should be up and doing. Chicago oarsmen are working hard to secure a model regatta course on tho lake front, off Lincoln Park, to bo a mile and a half straight away, Tho bowling tournament at the Columbia Athletic Club closed on Thursday evening. Tho finish was attended with considerable interest and excitement, as on tho lust irames depended tho results of tho maU:b. Mr. John C. Pedrlck won tho match and tho Ledingcup. Mr. George W. Lewis won the first prize for the largest in dividual tcore, Fred Thompson Iho second, and Mr. William Dove tho third. The average of tho six highest men in the tournament was as fol lows: John C. Pedrlck, 177; L. S. J annus, 174 8-15; W. M. Dovo, 174 7-15; Georgo W. Lewis, 174 2-5; J. B. Jones 1723, and James B. Keenan 1701. Mr. Lewis, winner of tho indi vidual score, announced his lntoutlou of re donating his prize, to bo contested for by tho above-named men, the ono making tho highest average In ten games of two separate innings to bo declared the winners, they contributing enough to muko up a second prize. Tho men have accepted tho donation and will arrange the games for tho last of tho present week. THUflBIAK'S DOUBLE DEALING. WhnOtettHr. Heiinctt and Scunlun Suy of tho Vutio-llull Imbroglio. Some new light on tho present base-ball em broglio, especially tho action of President Thur man, waB shed yesterday by President Bonnet and Director Ecanlun at baso-ball headquartere. Some weeks ago President Thurman was in this city and in a general way went over tho buse ball troubles and the anticipated action in rela tion to the disputed players. Ho asked Mr. Scan Ian what ho thought would be tho best way to arrange tho now agreement In regard to tho salo ofplayer6. "Why," said Mr. Scanlau, "tho way is clear enough. Prohibit tho clubs from carrying 60 many players on their reserved and regular H6ts.Mako It obligatory that no more than thirteen men shall be carried by any team, for when they have more it is only to make capital out of the men by bartering them to the highest I bidder." "That Is my opinion exactly," 6&id ' President Thurman, "and I 6hall Insist on It." President Thurman and Mr. Scanlun later had a discussion about tho Buffalo players, the latter Insisting It war. absolutely necessary or Mack el at, to lume back here, and M. Thurman agreed. W hen tho conference took jlace In New Xork aud Mr Scanlan reiterated his do- I mandator Mai L, Hoy, Haddock, and Beecher, J President 1 hurman argued looguith him about j tho matter, showing that Mack had signed n contract with tho Boston American team, and that Spalding and tho rest recognized It as a valid and bona fide claim. Yet he goes to Co lumbus and Intrigues with tho League counsel, Col. Rogers, and gives Mack to Pittsburg, rob bing an American team of a star player, whom ho had previously asserted had signed n legal contract to glvo him to a Leaguo team. If this wasn't doublo dealing what was It?" "Tho Association is well rid of him," 6ald Pres ident Bennett, "and tho struggle will go on, and you may rest assured no concessions will over come from our sido of tho house." Chicago, Fob. 21. War to tho knife is tho ultimatum of tho national board of control. Tho gauntlet was thrown down by tho Ameri can Association when that organization bolted tho national ngreemont. Tho challenge was taken up, and at tho meeting of tho board of control this afternoon tho following was given out as tho result of the members' dellbera tions: The national board has received the notice signed by William Barnie, vice president of tho American Association, announcing the with drawal of that body from tho benefits and privi leges of tho nutlonal ngrccment or February 18, 1801. No reasons arc assigned for this notion, nor does this board understand that there is tho slightest justification for so unwlso a step on tho S art of tho organization. If wo are to takoand ellevo tho published accounts for tho action, thoy cannot be regarded ns more thnn pretexts for repudiating tho now national ngrccment, so recently nnd so solemnly entered Into, nnd tho maintenance of which Association pledged by tho strongest considerations of truth and contract. Tho resulting consequences or this ill-advised actiou must rest on that body. By its own action it has annulled the approval of tho contracts its clubs have made wlthplnyers, ond its clubs havo released all their players from reserva tion. These players are now free to sign with any national league. Western Association, or other national agreement club. Tho players under reserve by these last-named clubs remain subject to their contracts and to reservation and to all the provisions of tho national agreement. Nor can any national agreement club play a gamo with any American Association Club nor with a club which has played with such asso ciation club. (Signed.) A. W. Thuhman, Chairman National Board. N. E. Young, Secretary. Baltimore, Feb. 21. Manager Barnie, vlco president of tho American Association, and manager of tho Baltimore Base-ball Club, was shown to-night tho pronunciamento of tho board of control issued nt Chicago this after noon and signed by "A. W. Thurman, chair man National Board, and N. E. Young, secre tary." Barnie said: The American Association is no longer in lead ing strings, nnd tho League bosses should not bo so much exercised at tho Association setting up in business for itself. A counter proclamation Will not be issued. The Association is "In it" to play ball this year and tho succeeding years, nnd proposes to give tho patrons of tho gamo in the cities in which tho clubs are located "tho best ball" they over witnessed. It's childish I will not play with you. Of course, the Leaguo clubs will not play with us. How can they? Tho Bal timore CJub has its own contracts with Its own players. They were never submitted to N. E. Young for approvnl, with perhaps two excep tions. All should get to work to please tho peo ple, and let us have peace." Georgo W. Townscnd, of Philadelphia, Balti more's well-known catcher, has signed for tho season of 1891. CnicAGO, Feb. 21. L. C. Krauthoff, of Kan san City, president of the Western Base-ball As sociation, is here to attend to-day's meeting of the board of control, no has taken a voto of his leaguo by telegraph on tho action of tho American Association in withdrawing from the national agreement. Tho result was unani mously in favor of standing by tho leaguo and national agreement. Boston, Feb. 21. Manager Irwin, of the Bobton Association Club, received a dispatch from Third-baseman Joyce this morning in which ho accepts the terms offered by tho club and asks that a contract be forwarded to him. Georgo Haddock, who formerlv playad here with the Washingtons will receive $3,000 next season with the Bed Stockings. This is a splendid salary for tho young man, but then George Is a gentleman and If big salaries aro to be paid it is a pleasure to note his advance ment. Ferson has written hero again stating that he is in better health than over before and capable of pitching finer and truer ball. He may como on here for a trial and if satisfactory will bo engaged. In speaking of tho old Cleveland team Mr. F. II. Brunnell, a great Western authority, recently said this In relation to tho players of that team who will como to Washington: "Tho notables turned adrift aro Faatz, Twitchell, Bakelv, and Gllks. Radford, Strieker, Gruber, aud d'Bricn aro held for commercial purposes alone. Not one will bo on tho Cleveland team of 1891. Tho Boston Reds have a notion toward Bakely, O'Brien, Gruber, and McAleer. Washington would like a couple of them, and St. Louis is said to want McAleer, although they haven't asked about him yet a peculiarly Von der Ahelsh move. Mac is a most manageablo and talenjed player, and O'Brien is ono of tho most valuable pitchers In America, with a knack of hitting the ball and easily acquiring n lot of popularity. Gruber, too, Is a most valuablo pitcher, aud outsldo of one weakness well known Bakely is aB good or better than he. Leadloy leaned toward Catcher Grimm, gone to Milwaukee, and Jim McGuiro, colng to Wash ington, but expects to get Buckley, and was theicforo forced to drop his leaulng." Owen Clark, tho well-known catcher, has signed to play hero next season. Clark has many friends hero and will be welcome. Manager Trott is after another battery, and though ho refuses to divulge their names TnB IIiskald guesses that It is tho Btar ono of tho Athletic Club, of Philadelphia, Chamberlain and Cross. If this proves true it will bo tho means of strengthening tho team wonderfully, as It Is perhaps ono of tho best working bat teries to-day in America. Cross is ono of tho heaviest hitters in tho arena. Carsey, a California Leaguo pitcher, is living in this city at present and Is anxious to get a chance to play with tho Nationals, Ho is a fine looking young man. Bakely, tho pitcher, has arrived iu town and la getting Into shape, Tho Sporting Life had a splendid picture yes terday of our handsome manager, Mr. Samuel Trott. It made "Babe," as ho is called, look tho Adonis that ho is. Tebeau yesterday signed a contract to play Jn Cleveland with the Leaguo team. It was given out that ho had jumped. Contractor Dunn is busily at work getting the new ball park in condition, and expects by Wednesday to havo tho place cleared of all trees and other obstructions. Then the pegs for tho graud stand will bo driven and by the end of tho week tho work on that important structure will commence. Sea6ou tickets will bo 60ld at $20 for all games at Natioual Park during the beason. This will bo welcome news to tho enthusiasts, It can now bo definitely stated that Maguiro has signed a contract to play in Wa6hiuEtou durluir tho coming season and will play here. ThU is a splendid pick-up. Tho grumbling that has been going on for some time in tho baso-ball arena culminated on Wednesday In tho Americau Association de posing President Thurman and the election of Mr. Louis Kramer, of Ciucinutttl. in his olaco. If all came from the action of the hoard of con trol giving-to Pittsburg and Boston ieaguo teams the services of the two reserved Ameri can Association players, Stoyey and Blerbauer. Looked at calmly and dispassionately, tho American Association people havo good grounds for their manly and dignified course. Tho Leaguo has been hagglntrlt for years, using tho Association as a sort of catspaw, but this sea son they struck a different set of men nnd now they are realizing tho position they are In. Tho masses are with tho Association and will patronize them In prefcrenco to tho monopo lists. For tho interest of tho game, peace and harmony Is best, of course, but in tho face of cxlstingfacts it is hard to see how else tho As sociation could act. May thoy havo tho courage to keep up the fight and at last run tho League to cover 1 There is an important meeting of tho Leaguo and board of control to-night at Chi cago, and it is not improbable that a trues will bo declared, as It looks unreasonable for tho Leaguo to contluuo a fight In tho faco of such desertions as Kelly, Nash, Brouthcrs, Richard son, Bockly, Staley, and others that aro already announced, with tho prospect probably of more to follow. Tho Association has tho whip hand. Tho grand stand at tho National Park will bo furnished with tho finest seats In this country. They aro tho newly-patented, highly-polished folding oak chairs, similar in some respects to those in tho Polo grounds, Now York. Sam ples aro now on exhibition at Director Scanlan's aud arc much admired by those who frequent tho place. Tho contract calls for 1,500 of them for the grand 6tand. Prcsidcut Krauthoff, whom President Young 6aid was the brainiest legal mind in base bali decided against Thurman and Rogers in tho Blerbauer and Stovey cases. In summing up tho caso President Krauthoff called attention to tho fact that last year the American Associa tion proved steadfast and true to tho Leaguo in its fight against tho Players' League, and it was 6hameful and distressing to think that now tho Leaguo was going to stab them in tho back by stealing its property. . THE UNIVERSITY CLUB. An Election Last Night A Mngnifloent New OIub-Housc. An election was held last night by tho mem bers of tho University Club to select a board of governors to serve, respectively, one, two, and three years, according as the new board may determine. Tho University Club is the old Meridian Club, re-Incorporated last January, having in view tho increasement of its member ship of college graduates, and tho estab lishment of a club similar in nature to tho uni versity clubs iu other cities. Tho membership ha6 greatly increased in the last month, tho active members of tho club now numbering over 200, while the list of non-resident mem bers is about 50. It is expected that Chief Justice Fuller will be elected president at the next meeting of the board of governors, and in case he should de cline tho honor Justice Harlan will no doubt be asked to accept the presidency. Tho club contemplates either building a mag nificent house somewhere on Connecticut ave nuo during tho next year, or leasing for a num ber of years the old Russian Legation, on K street, for quarters, as tho present house is not roomy enough, with tho increased membership. Tho election last night resulted in the choice of the following-named persons: W. V. R. Berry, Barry Bulkley, Robert S. Chil ton, Jr., W. D. Davidce, Pickering Dodge, John C. Edwards, Henry Wise Garnett, S. Herbert Gie6y, Judge A. B. Hagner, Admiral Jouet, Woodbury Lowery, Marshall McDonald, E. S. McCalmont, F. D. McKenney, J. R. McLean. Maj. J. W. Powell, R. C. Ray, Dr. T. R. Stone, Samuel D. Trimble, T. C. Trescot, Dr. A. H. Wltmer, and John Sidney Webb. Last Meeting of White Ribboners. The last meeting of the Association of White Rlbboners, under tho auspices of tho Natioual Woman's Christian Temperance Union, was held in the First Congregational Church yester day afternoon, and was a mass-meeting for children. Notwithstanding a steady down-pour of rain, at 3 o'clock a long procession of children marched into the church with music and banners. Mrs. Wood, superintendent of juvenile work for the District of Columbia, presided. After prayer by Dr. Newman, tho pastor of the church, Miss Willard was introduced to the children and spoke briefly. Her remarks were greatly enjoyed by her bright young audience. Several of tho little people recited poems. An address by Miss Anna A. Gordon, Buperidend ent of juvenile work for tho World's W. C. T. U., was enthusiastically applauded by the young people, who fully appreciated Its wit and wi6dom. After the song, "Rise, Temple, Rise," the meeting was adjourned. District Attorney Hogo's Successor. Mr. Charles C. Cole, who was yesterday nominated by the President to succeed Judge Hogo as District Attorney, is a well-known lawyer and his appointment was well received. Mr. Colo is a native of Maine, but camo to Washington from West Virginia, where ho set tled in 1807. Ho still claims West Virginia as his legal residence, and was indorsed by tho Republican Congressmen from that State for tho District Attorneyship. The New Commerce Commissioner. Mr. Martin A. Knapp, who was nominated yesterday to succeed Mr. Shoonmakcras a mem ber of tho Interstate Commerce Commission, is a prominent lawyer of Syracuso, N. Y., aud re cently c&me within a few votes of securlug tho Republican nomination for Supremo Judge of tho Syracuse District. Ho is a very popular man aud was indorsed by both tho Hiscock and Belden factions of Syracuse. A Successful Firm. Tho assertion is frequently heard that Wash ington can never bo a manufacturing city, but many facts can bo adduced to prove that manu factures can thrive hero as well as olsowhero wheu they aro directed by enterprising and in telligent men. For instance, tho firm of Andrew J Joyce's Bons, carriage builders, 6hows what can bo done in Washington In this difficult lino of manufactures. This firm, by care, perseverance, iutcgrity, and intelligence, has established one of the most successful carriage-building businesses in tho country, and specimens of their work aro to bo found in almost ovcry American city. Their Connecticut-avenuo ware-roouiB contain as fine a collection of broughams, victorias, spider phaetons, carts, coaches, as well as a complete and elegant as sortment ef harness, blankets, lap robes, rugs, Imported whips, and, in fact, all stable belongings as can bo found anywhero Tho specialty of tho Joyces has alwayo been work made to order,and many of tho most unique equipages In tho country haye been built by them iu pursuance of tho designs and plans of their owner architects. Mr. Georgo W. Joyce, tho senior member of tho firm, has been identi fied with tho house for seventeen years. Ho Is vice president of tho Carriage Bulldors' National Association, also a proml ucut member of tho Technical School for Carriage Draughtsmen and the Ad vancement of Mechauics, to which ho is a liberal subscriber. Mr. R. Edwin Joyce is tho junior member of the firm. For Professor Henry's Daughters.

VeerhofC's hand some new art galleries at 1217 F street yester day was attended by hundreds of Washington's art connoisseurs and patrons. The galleries, threo in number, presented a beautiful effect, with their innumerable pictures grouped In classes and departments. Tho first gallery is devoted exclusively to the exhibition of fino etchings, engravings, and other similar works of a high standard, and contains many fine examples of American and foreign etchers and engravers. Among these aro Leigh Hunt, who Is represented in his now etching, a semi-marine scene, "Early Morning in Rotterdam." Tho latest from Marcus Stone Is also exhibited, a delicate soft mezzo tint, entitled "The First Lovo Letter." Then there Is Percy Moran, King, Hamilton, Kuntks, and dozens of other famous etchers. The second gallery, which Is given up to the display of the magnificent collection of oil paintings secured by Mr. Veerhoff from tho fino collection of Mr. Ilazcltine, of Philadelphia, Is filled with scores of superb pictures, all of an uuexceptlonally high order. Prominent among these aro productions of tho most noted artists. Hero may bo seen Munkacsy's "Last Days of a Condemned Man," a picture which Impresses deeply by tho conflicting emotions portrayed in tho countenance of a lugged, fierce, and desper ate mau; Do Penno's picture of threo expectant setters, "Waiting for Their Master," in which tho artist oxhiblts to the be6t advantage his wonderful skill in delineating tho graco and beauty of tho cauiue form; Jean Beraud, a ship ping scene; Boughtou's " Sunshine" aud "Shade," two full-length portraits of feminine grace; Zamacol's "Waiting," Nollon's still-life study, Berne-Bollecour's (tho painter of French military life) "Refreshments by tho Wayside," Honner's "Lucilo," an ideal head produced In tho 6oft, misty semi-tones peculiar to this great artl6t; Lambert's "Study ofjja Cat," and many others whose standing In tho world of art is as high. The third gallery is filled with dainty water colors and finest reproductions in colors. Among those whoso works appear aro such well-known names as Jullon Rfx, who lately furnished Jlar)ers Magazine with such attrac tive and beautiful work as to call forth the ad miration of art lovers in this as well as other countries, and Walter Satterlee. Clover sketchy effects, as well as tho more complete works, aro hero In unlimited quantity, and the walls present a spectacle of brilliant hues. Each de partment Is in charge of an experienced attend ant, and the arranging and grouping of tho beautiful wares is certainly artistic. Owing to the inclemency of tho weather, which certainly prevented tho attendance of hundreds, Mr. Veerhoff has decided to keep the galleries open to-morrow until 9 P. M. The opening will be continued until Wodnesday, and those who take an Interest in art matters should attend, There aro few galleries in tho country that can preseut 6uch a beautiful aud carefully selected collection of etchings, oil and water color palntiugs. Besides these Mr. Veer hoff exhibited tho latest designs In art mirrors, and they in themselves form a collection well worth tho attention of any art enthusiast, Australian Ballot Adopted.
