GEORGE I. GARDINFR OF TOBACCO GROWERS TO ADDRESS MEETING George I. Gardiner, secretary of the Maryland Tobacco Growers’ Associa- i tion will be the principal speaker at j the mass-meeting in the interest of i the tobacco growers to be held in the House of Delegates Chamber at the | State House tomorrow' night. The meeting has been arranged un- j der the auspices of the Chamber of Commerce of Annapolis largely to discount certain reports to the effect that business men of the city are not , in sympathy with the interests of the : tobacco producers of the county. Mer-! chants of the city generally have been invited to attend the meeting, and by ' their attendance demonstrate that the tobacco growers have the hearty sup port of the commercial interests of the city. County Agent George W. Nor ris, acting in co-operation with the Chamber of Commerce, sent out in vitations to a large number of the tobacco men and other farmers, but the meeting is open to the public. In addition to the address of Mr. Gardiner, it is likely that several members of the Chamber of Com merce, also will address the meeting. flameTthreaW TYtO BIG INDUSTRIAL PLANTS Two general fire alartns sounded within a few minutes of one another just after the noor hour today, brought out all of the city’s lire fight ing apparatus. The first was for a blaze in a lot of rubbish in a small alley near the ice plant of the Parlett and Parlett Company. It was extinguished with out damage, except that paint on the side of the ice plant building was scorched in several places. Scarcely had the fire fighters re turned to their quarters than the sec ond alarm was sounded for a fire in the lumber yards of the Meredith Lumber Company, foot of King George street. The blaze burst from a quan tity of old lumber near the power plant, and serious damage probably would have resulted but for the prompt and efficient work of the fire laddies. Origin of the lires has not been determined. Bandits Parole French Captive (By The AwsoHuted I’res.> PEKIN, May 17..—V.

ORANGE OARSMEN HERE TO “PREP" FOR RACES Varsity and Second Varsity eight oared shell crews of Syracuse Univer sity, accompanied by their veteran rowing coach “Jim” Ten Eyck, arriv ed in Annapolis this afternoon to put the finishing touches to their work in preparation for the regatta with like crews of the Annapolis Midshipmen on Severn river Saturday afternoon. The races will be rowed separately, and each will be over a two-mile course. ■ The cedar' shells to be used by the Syracusans have been delayed a few hours in transportation, but will reach here in time for the crews to get in several practice swings before dark ness. The races will close the local season for the Middies, and are at tracting much local interest, as the Orange generally puts up a plucky fight, and its Varsity eight put over the only defeat suffered by the Mid dies three years ago just before they went abroad and won the World's championship at the Olympics. Ten Eyck coached Navy crews over a score of years ago, and he was warm ly greeted by old friends upon his ar rival today. SUM'S HEW ! BOWS TO HOPKINS With Score Tied At 6-All Balti moreans Got Four Runs Across In Ninth Johns Hopkins baseball tossers scored their second victory of the season over the St. John’s College Cadets yesterday, 10 to 6. The game was in dire contrast to that staged at Homewood last Saturday when the Black and Blue won a pitcher's duel 3 to 1. Yesterday’s game was marked by heavier hitting and loose fielding. Both teams did the bulk of their scor ing in the early innings, Hopkins finally going out in front in the fourth by one run, when the score was 5 to 4, but the Cadets tied the count | in the seventh. j Coach Hoban sent Gray to the hill I for his Cadet pupils, and the visitors J early began to touch him. The fourth, | however, proved his Waterloo when ! fl* e Blue Jays got a trio of runners ; home, although he was not yanked out until the fifth after he had passed one batsman and hit another. Standi ford tlum took up the^work and was effective until the ninth when he weakened and Hopkins sewed up the game with a quartet of runs, i It all happened in this way: Stan l diford passed Marrian, but the latter was thrown out at second on Thomas’ fielder’s choice. Smith and Danna tell singled, scoring Thomas, Smith going to third. Danna'toil s.tole sec (Continued On I*iit 2.) Rites For Late Mrs. Lottie E. Reynolds The body of Mrs. Lottie E.

The Severn lads have now won six games and lost three in the Prep School League tournament. Mc- Donogh forfeited to Severn Tuesday. Friends got away to a fast start and took the lead in the third stanza, when they pushed over three counters and this they held until the fifth frame. In the fifth innjng the Severn crew got to the deliveries of Byers, and with heavy stick work, coupled with two errors, opened the way for five tallies to cross the rubber. This lead proved too much for the Friends and they went down fighting hard.
