Baltimohe, Aug. 22. With one man out
In tho eleventh limine, a red-legged Wash
ingtonlan went over the rubber with tho win
ning run, much to tho disgust of tho 048 spec
tators who witnessed to-day's game. Tho
contest was ono ol the best played hero this
season. Elteljorg pitched superbly, only five
hits being made oft his dollvery, although he
was wild at times and 6enteven men to bases
on balls. But ho kept tho hits well-scattered
and wa6 admirably supported. '
McMahou, who has hitherto proved an
enigma to the National batsmen, was batted
hard, and two of the three runs to their credit
were earned. Ho received better support
than his Danish competitor, and pitched an
excellent game. Tho visitors took tho lead
in the third Inning and held it until tho ninth,
when tho Orioles tied the score. Their effort
was fruitless, however, for tho Nationals
batted out a run, and tho
eleventh inning. The fielding

The Nationals have secured Pitcher Inks, of
the Duluths. Halligan, who agreed early in
the month of July to come with the rest of the
Omahas, but deserted and went to Cincin
nati, has joined the team. These men, with
Dukes and Ely, make a great combination of
new strength. The engagement, of these four
players means that 6ome of the players now
In service have got to go, and ft Is said that
Dowd, Alvord, and Freeman are the ones fir6t
slated. Manager Shannon has not been
pleased with Dowd'e and Alvord's work, and
ever since coming here has been anxious to
release them, if better meu could be secured.
The new men or the better portion of them will
be here this week.
There is a hitch over the adding of more
games to the schedule of the American Asso
ciation which comes from the fact that the
Bostons do not take kindly to the scheme.
The Idea was to add twelve games to each
club, six f o be played In the west, and as
many more In the ea6t. Tho National direc
tors are In favor of the movement, as every
one knows that October Is the best month for
ball playing Jn this vicinity. It is to bo hoped
that the scheme will yet succeed.
Duke, the cyclone wonder of the Minneapo
lis team, id about the best twirl er of the North
west and, barring a pec uliar wildness at times
Is the best deceiver of batsmen that over stopped
into tho box. Tho Idea of tho directors Is
to get as many available mou on tho list now
as posslblo In order that they might start out
next season with as strong a team as It is pos
sible. It begins to look as If they will suc
ceed. Thcro was a movement on foot to retire Presi
dent Kramer from tho head of the American
Association and to put Mr. Zach. Pholps In
his place. This gentleman has been a power
In tho Association for years, and Is ono of tho
best-posted bascballl6ts In America. Ho
would mako an efficient chief of the Associa
tion, but President Kramer, with no Intention
of vacating, frowned down tho effort.
Tho Milwaukee Club, as prophesied In Tub
Hkuai.d, Is now a full-fledged American As
sociation club, and Is on tho circuit playing
tho schedule of tho dlsbaudcd American As
sociation team. Manager Bancroft will man
age tho now team, and will take from tho Cln
clnnatls Carney, Dwyer, andCanavan. Presi
dent Gillette Is sure he can retain most of the
old Milwaukee team.
Tho programme for the present week Is as
follows: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday,

Final Game of the A. A. U. Series.
The C. A. C. and the Y. M. C. A. clubs
played the final gamo of tho A. A. U. series
yesterday afternoon at National Park. Tho
gamo was a very one-sided affair, as the score
shows. The Columbias bad out their strongest
team of the season. Wright made his first
appearance as an amateur, having recently
been reinstated, and caught Leach's fine pitch
ing splendidly. Tho Kings on first and third
played their usual good game. Springman
led the batting with a triple, two doubles, and
a single. Sanford, for the Y. M. C. A., dis
tinguished himself by some fine catches in
left field. Burdette played first base, and was
the life of the team. Johnson has a bone
broken in his right hand, and his catching, in
trying to Bhield himself, was very poor, having
five passed balls and making four fielding
errors. The score by innings:
C. A. C 2 13 0 0 15 0 018

DISTRICT GOVERNMENT NOTES.
Items of Intercut Picked Up at the Com
Mr. F. X. Stevens, through who3c energy
the appropriation for the construction of the
free bathing beach was obtained, was at tho
District Buildings yesterday to confer with the
Commissioners as to the regulations to be en
forced there. The houses have not been
entirely completed but most of them are in
order,and for a few days the boys congregatign
there have been allowed to utilize them. A
policeman is detailed there to keep order.
Upon recommendations of Captain Lusk
the Commissioners have decided that the bar
rooms within the mile limit of Soldiers' Home
will have to pay water rent for the full year,
although their licenses expires October 31.
This decision was based on an opinion of tho
attorney for the District, which stated In ef
fect that the Water Department cannot re
mit any portion of a charge for water rent
made on July 1 of any year and determined
by the character of the premises at that time.
Captain Rossell's plan for tho purpose to
which the present Bennlng's bridge should be
put when the new ono is built is to reconstruct
it where tho M street extension crosses tho
Eastern Branch. This street extended will
lead directly to the Bennlngs race track. The
proposed work could be done at little ex
pense to the District.
Upon the recommendation of Major Moore
Private M. W. Qulnlan, who for several years
has been hack inspector, has been appointed
a member of the detective force. This Is tho
first of the new detectives to be appointed.
Private 8. A. Graff has been detailed a hack
George T. Howard, sealer of weights aud
measures, has been appointed market clerk,
in order to give him the necessary authority
to regulate teams around tho market.
James J. Taylor and Frank Wagner have
been appointed privates In the FIro Depart
ment, vice Richard McGrath, dismissed, and
R. T. Cross, resigned.
The Last Tour of the Season to Nlucura
Falls Via Pennsylvania Railroad.
To meet the wishes of many of Its patrons
who wish to enjoy a short trip in the early
autumn the Pennsylvania Railroad has de
cided to run another excursion to Niagara
Falls on Monday, September 7, leaving Wash
ington at 8:10 a. m. The popularity of these
tours is Bbown by the fact that 305 persons
left Washington on the tour of AugUBt 20.
Tickets willbe spld at the rate of $10 for the
round trip, good for ten days, and valid for
stopoff at Watklns or Rochester in either di
rection. They are also good for returning via
Buffalo and for 6topoff at that point. Parlor
cars will be attached to the train for which
the rate is $2 to Niagara Falls or $1.50 to
Watklns. A tourist agent and chaperon will
accompany the party. For further informa
tion apply to R. A. Parke, passenger agent,
Sixth Street Station.

to Local Athletes.
The national regatta has come and gone
aud our citizens have had tho plcasuro of
witnessing some of the finest rowing events
that ever took place In this or any other
country. The excellent arrangements of tho
local committee wero carried out to a nicety,
and every detail was as perfect as it could
be. Tho executive committee was profuse in
its expressions of thanks, and said that
nowhere In America, whero small pleasure
crafts abounded, and shipping was a commer
cial mark, could tho course have been clearer
and more freo from all obstructions. From
the start to the finish of tho races not a foul
or an Interference marked any of tho them, a
feature unprecedented In the annals of two
days' racing. It also showed tho visiting oars
men what a grand course tho Potomac river
Is for just such events and how it ought to bo
used more frequently. It Is but just to pay
a tribute to Harbor Master Sutton, for his
indefatigable work In patrollng and keeping
clear the coast. Special Officer Frank Bur
rows had tho whole Virginia side roped In
and kept tho small boats within bounds. Tho
success that tho national, as well as tho local,
committee met with In tho regatta fully
justifies the assertion that Washington is the
place for the national regatta.
Through the foresight of Mr. Eugene John
son a number of the friends and fellow mem
bers of tho Columbia Athletic Club wero af
forded an excellent opportunity of witnessing
the regatta of last Tuesday and Wednesday.
Mr. Johnson chartered tho ocean tug Samp
son, and soon secured enough subscribers to
defray the expenses and attract a Yery pleas
ant party of ladies and gentlemen. Tho races
both days wero thoroughly enjoyed and as the
tug was the fastest on tho river an excellent
view of the different events was obtained.
Among those who made up the party were
Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Ranier, Mr. Ford Thomp
son and Miss Schubert, Mr. and Mrs. George
V. Balch, Dr. W. T. Harban and Mrs. Har
ban, Mr. E. E. Whiting and Miss Cox, A. B.
O'Leary, the Misses Watklns, Mrs. La Gorce,
Mr. L. A. and Mrs. Coolidge, R. J. W. Brew
ster and Mrs. Brewster, Mr. and Mrs. J annus,
Mr6. W. H. Gibson, Miss Jeannie Williams,
Miss Ella Beall, Miss Delia Henrv. Mrs. R. J.
Beall, jr., Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Smith, Mr. and
Mrs. Peters, Mrs. General Field. Mrs. S. W.
Stinemetz, W. Hamilton Smith and Mrs.
Smith, Mr. and Mrs. Stockbridge, Miss Annio
McGowan, L. P. Pepin, H. B. Mason, B. F.
Whiteside, John Oliver, B. V. Sims, Walter
Doxson, and R. C. Ballantyne.
The eight-oared race was the race of tho re
gatta, and the scene on the river as tho four
crafts 6teered up stream was an inspiring ono
and aroirsed the enthusiasm of the spectators to
its greatest pitch. Up to the mile tho four
crews Kept weu togotner ana came up tno
river almost even. At this pomt a small
steam launch got out on the Maryland shore
and came puffing up stream, the Columbias
and Falrmounts catching the wash constantly.
From here the New York clubs forged ahead
as they wero off further in the middle of the
stream, and the gallant youngsters of the New
York Athletics at Easby's Point put on a
spurt that seemingly carried them a length
ahead of the champion Atalantas. It was a
beautiful sight to 6ee the boys pull away from
their heavy rivals, and the cheers of the people
were echoed back from the hills amid the
shrieks of steam whistles. While this was
going on an Interesting race was occurring be
tween the Columbias and Falrmounts for
third place. From Easby's Point the Colum
bias gradually drew away and won third posi
tion handily, thus In a measure wiping out the
defeat of tho four-oared crew the day before.
The time was, New YorK Athletics, 7.47, At
alantas, 7.53J; Columbias 7.591; Falrmounts
The abuse that has been leveled at the local
committee was unwarranted. They had a
largo committee to take care of, besides
the referees, umpire, timer, and judges, so
when they counted noses there was little room
for more. Tho passenger limit on tugs in this
vicinity is very small and the inspectors from
the Treasury Department refused to allow any
more to be carried. The following is tho list
of winners: Junior singles, Mr. Wright,
of Toronto; senior singles, William Caf
frey, Lawrence, M.ass. This is tho second
year he has won it. Quarter mile dash Seulor

The first annual championship meeting of
the Atlantic Division, A. A. U., of which
Washington is a member, will take place on
Saturday, September 19, at Baltimore, uuder
the auspices of the Baltimore Athletic Club.
The champions at thiB meeting will be entered

Dr. B. M. Ilopkinson, B. A. C; Gastavus
Ober, B. A. C; Howard Perry, C. A. C; W.

with James II, McClellan, B. A. C., as chair
man. At the meeting of tho executive committee of
the N. A. A. O. on Wednesday tho following
officers wero elected: President, Henry W.
Garfield, of. Albany; vice president, Charles
Catlln, of Chicago; treasurer, H. K. Hlnch
man, of Philadelphia; secretary, W. Howard
Gibson, of Washington. The affairs of the
concern was found to be in a healthy condlt ion.
The re-election of President Garlleld waB a
deserved recognition of his good work, while
that of Secretary Gibson was to be expected,
as he is unquestionably the best officer the
club has ever possessed.
Athletic and Rowing Notes.
The Potomac Athletic Club did not give
their usual hop on last Friday night, but
those present at the boathouso found them
selves the guests of President G, M. Fague,
under whose genial auspices refreshments
were served on tho balcony, and an Informal
danco was kept xiv until after 12 o'clock.

The Columbia senior eight Is to be heartily
congratulated for their spirited finish in their
race. Had their course been an in6lde one
the result would have been changed.
The only drawback to tho entire success of
that great elght-oared contest on Wednesday
was the starting out at tho quarter-mi Io point
of tho steam launch Curlew, with several
members of tho Columbia Athletics and
Ariols, of Baltimore, on board. They got

Tho defeat of tho Columbia four-oared crow
by tho Falrmounts, of Philadelphia, was the
greatest surprise of tho regatta, as every one
supposed tho C. A. C. had a cinch on tho race.
It was a hard-fought battle, as a scant length
separated tho crows tho entire distance.
Coxswain Joo Welsh, of the Columbia
6enlor eight, became convinced that tho re

To Visit Glon Echo.
Mr. Edward Baltzley, president of the Glen
Echo Chautauqua, has extended an invitation
to the American Association for the Advance
ment of Science to visit tho grounds of the
Chautauqua on Monday. Tho start will be
made from tho Columbian University at 4
o'clock p. m. Arrival can be made at the
Glen Echo Railroad power-house at about
5:15 o'clock. Quitting the power-houso at
say 0 o'clock, tho grounds of tho Chautauqua
can at once bo vlBlted, allowing till 7 for in
spection of the various points of interest.
The concert can then be attended, lasting
till S, after which supper can be had at the
bridge at any hour the members may deter
mine, and the return to Washington made
according to desire.
The fourth annual meeting of the Shenan
doah Driving Park, at Berryville, Va., on the
19th and 20th, gave additional evidence of the
success of this racing organization. Berry
ville being the centre of a country which is
just now giving special attention to the
breeding and development of both
thoroughbreds and to trotters, it was
to be expected that tho race6 would
be of more than ordinary Interest. The at
tendance was very largo and the contests ex
ceptionally Interesting. Tho novelty race on
Thursday made them run at all stages and
was won by William Garths Katie C, in
good style. Maddox's Ella getting the first
half only. Tho attendance from both Wash
ington and Baltimore was large.

Tho two sons of Zenes Crane, who makelhe

ment notes aro printed, were at the Fifth
Avenue Hotel yesterday. Their father was
tho inventor of tho paper and explained Its
value to Secrotary Salmon P. Chase,, who
adopted it for tho greenback issues. It has
never been successfully counterfeited, and the
sons have got tho secret of Its manufacture
from their father. J. Murray Crane, who at

active man of perhaps 85 years of age.
There Is a 6tory told in New England that
when tho paper pulp, made of pure linen
stock, is all ready for tho final touches at the
mills, J. Murray Crane appears on tho scene
with a black gripsack. Tho grip and tho

POKER AND POLITICS.
Good Politicians Said to lio Well Up in
the Game of Draw.
"I asked a well-known politician the other
day," said Ralph Wells, at tho Anderson yes

said to bo good poker players. I have always
understood that politics and poker are closely
associated. He replied that It was easy to ex
plain. "In sitting around a card table caste and
position In lifoare forgotten. Poker crowds
aro the most democratic in the world. The
game Is exciting enough to keep everybody
interested, and tho players feel at liberty to
indulge in free and easy remarks without
giving offense. A gamo of poker is the best
kind of an introduction. Friends who meet
over a card table never forget each other. It
is a good opportunity aho to study human
nature, and get at the weak points of a man
that you wish to use. It frequently happens
that some of the cleverest political bargains
are made during a friendly gurae. This is why

Tenny, should uphold the honors for tho city,
and much regret was expressed to-day that
Tenny's temporary bad form prevented the
plan being carried out.
Nevertheless a remarkable contest, it was
conceded, would of necessity ensue with
Kingston, known to be in splendid condition,
being chased by the Kansas City crack, Verge

and tho fresh Kentucky beauty, Marlon C.
Aloha looked fine and strong, but Vergo D'Or

and swiftly did they come that the eye could
scarcely follow. An instant more and the
big Kentucky mare with the dashing Irishman
bestriding was seen to have the mastery.
Whipping and spurring they came, but in
vain. Such a volcano of cheers as now broke
forth was probably never before heard on a
Western race course.
Fitzpatrick, panting, was carried in triumph
on the shoulders of the crowd, while he took
down the silken purse, handing it to a farmer
looking Individual in shirt sleeves. Tho latter
was no other tham J. Milton Young, of Lex

Jockey Hamilton, standing by, gloomily

sides of the defeated champion Kingston.
