The Base Ball Comedy Presented by the Chit-ago and All-America Teams. It vai perhaps a good thing that the Presi dent went down the river yesterday, and was thus unable to attend the game between the All-America and Chicago round-the-world teams. H? told them that he liked to see a good game, but he would have been sadly disap pointed had he witnessed the game of yester day. As it was, about 2.500 people, who had made the pilgriraago to Capitol Park with the expectation of seeing some good ball playing, were treated to as poor an exhibition as is usually presented by professional players. The score was IS to 6. in favor of the Chicago team. The game was won in the first inning, the Chi cago m. n piling up H runs before they were re tired. Crane and Karle, and Baldwin and An son were the batteries. The people were gener ally hopeful that Healv would pitch, in order j to see the kind of man the Statesmen are going to have in the box this year. Ward evi dently wanted to show the people here as little i favor as possible and put Crane in the box. j making i.n evident mistake, for he pitched a ; lazy. ineftiei."iit game, and was very ineffective. P'Oth pitchers were very wild, sending man after man to bases on balls. Crane seven and Baldwin eight. Chicago batted hard and often, and their hits were well aided by the miserable j fielding of their opponents. There was a lack i rf spirit noticeable throughout the game on I the part of both teams. Anson's men seemed to hit the ball simply because it was easy to do and they liked to see it sail to the sky. They ran bases because the air was cold and the wind keen, and some kind of exercise was necessary to keep warm. Ryan and Burns were terrors at the bat. each making four hits, Rye.n with a total of six bases and Burns live. Earle captivated the hearts of the crowd and pro duced about the only enthusiasm by his work. He played ball every minute and hit the ball for three bags twice in succession. ward's reception. Ward was treated very fairly by the crowd. He was greeted with applause when he came to the bat. and he started oat under good aus pices. But his work was very poor in the field, and the spectators, believing that he was tair game, welcomed each of his three errors with derision. Before the game was over Ward was the laughing stock of the audience. lie not only made three misplavs. but threw so badly twice that errors were credited to Carroll, who played first, anil on two occasions displayed bad judgment in his work as a captain. The second basemen. Manning and Pfeffer, both did beautifully, their playing standing with Earle's in markt d contrast to the rest of the exhibition. A brass band did what it could to enliven the occasion. Chicago made 17 hits and 5 errors and All-America 7 hits and 7 errors. Other games?New York. 2o. Princeton. 4; Brooklyn. i>.

Brilliant Opening of the Old Guards' Entertainment?The l.adies in Charge. The "Garden Bazar" of the Old Guard was opened hint night at the National Pities' armory in the presence of an audience that crowded the spacious room. Secretary Noble was ex pected to deliver the opening address, but he sent a note excusing himself on account of a previous engagement to dine with the Chinese minister. The secretary's place was filled by G< n. M. M. Bailie, an ex-representative from Illinois, who delivered on address which the audience punctuated with applause.

The bazar will continue two weeks. The Faulty Street-Car Tracks. To the Editor of I hl Evemno .Star; Your article on the dreadful accideut to Mrs. Febiger laid stress on the dangers of smooth asphalt pavements, but the reports of the affair | say that the actual crash occurred at lltli | street, where the strctt-car trarkx makr a long \ curr-and are paved with granite blocks! This is by no means the worst cur-track crossing in the city. The dangers incurred where streets are fairly gridironed with rails, and the con stant damage to wheeled vehicles and to horses' hoofs in crossing them, shows that the Commis sioners ought to use the power vested in them by Congress of enforcing the use of the best I rails and proner paving by the car companies. | Such a tragedy an that of Sunday ought not to j be needed to confirm the lesson. Tuavelek. The Philadelphia Club. The members of the Philadelphia club met last night at Grand Army hall and adopted a I constitution and by-laws. The club is com- i posed of Philadelphians holding government i offices in this city. The following officers were ^ elected: Col Chas. Fair, president; A. P. Mars- 1 ton. first vice-president: S. M. Thatcher, second vice-president; M. McCullv, financial secretary; E. S. Wilt-r. recording and corresponding sec retary; Daniel Itamey. treasurer; A. M. Sprague, doorkeeper, and a finance committee composed of Joseph W. Deneane. chairman; John C. ' Hogan. and Wm. H. Miller. Postmaster-Gen- i eral Wananiaker and Gen. J. K. McCammou were elected honorary members, as were also th- four republican congressmen from Phila delphia, Bingham, O'Neill, Kellev, and Harmer. i An Anniversary Banquet. Nine survivors of the original membership of the National Bides, organized in 1H61, cele brated the anniversary of that event hutt night by a quiet little banquet at Freund's. Mr. E. T. Matthews presided. Those present were Col. A. T. Bntton. Noble D. Earner. G. Y. Atl^ee, E. N. Leonard. J. 31. t iavtou. Gilbert Towles, J. T. Clements, and Mr. Brandt. Letters of re gret were read from Col. W. G. Moore, Colonel Sundberg. Mr. Mayuadier, G. M. Dresser, Joseph McMackin. and ltev. Charles M. Pyue. Where Were the Police? To the Editor of The Rveni^o htab: It seems strange that such a disgraceful up roar could happen in the very heart of this city as that which occurred Sunday night at about 11:30 near the cornerof 12th and Ietreeta , northwest and yet not attract the attention of 1 cringle member of the police force. A col- ! ored woman, who was evidently drunk, bawled out: "Murder!" ? Murder!" "Murder!" and atten d the most blasphemous oaths at the top of her voice- too obscene to iqipear in print?and wns heard three squares off by a citizen who afterward appeared on the scene, expecting to find some one murdered. The woman who canned th" disturbance disappeared in an alley way on 12th street between I and New York ?venuo. No policeman put in an appearance. 8. AMUSEMENTS. Albai"oh's Opera Horse.?The New Ameri ! can Opera company gave a rather uneven ren ! dering of "Faust" last night before an audience which pooftiblr miffht have been more respon i rive and lews inclined to be coldly critical if they ' had paid a higher admission fee.' The attempt to give grand opera at reasonable prices seems I somehow to excite the prejudice of a large sec tion of theater-goers. who invariably watch , effort* of the kind with an ill-concealed bos- ' tility that makes the work of the artists doubly difficult. On the principle of the "boy about town" who lives very high immediately after pay day and starves for the rest of the month, these people eagerly pay fabulous prices to hear : one great singer, aided'by a corps of preten tious mediocrities: but for a company contain ing several really good artists, with the inevita ble others who are not so good, they refuse to make any allowances at all. Washington audi ences have in the past frequently paid fancy j prices for much less meritorious'performances | of '"Faust" than that of last night. Of course, it was easy to pick flaws in the work of the chorus and of some of the principals. 80 it always was with the big troupes Mapleson used to give us. On the other hand there was much of great merit in last night's perform ance. Miss Natali's Marqtierite was conscien tiously if somewhat heavily acted. She has a true and pleasant voice of good range, and she 1 used it with honesty and effectiveness without i attempting any of" those vocal pyrotechnics with w hich only artists of the very first class are ever really successful. It is not easy to re call a more thoroughly satisfactory Slephitto than that of Vetta. He filled with power every scene in which he figured, and his clear, flexi ble. and splendidly dramatic voice forced the ; audience out of its reserve. Partic ularly moving was the scene with Marguerite at the opening of the third act. The part of Siebel was almost equally well taken by Miss Lizzie Macnichol. whose many friends were delighted to hear again the rich*, resonant tones of her fine coutralto. She played the part with a modest reserve that j was artistic and delightful. Alonzo Stoddard's ] Ynlentine was admirable in every way. His voice last night seemed clearer and stronger than ever before, ami the death scene was in tensely dramatic. Mr. Castle's t'liuxl was less of a disappointment than might have been ex pected. His appearance aroused many pleas ant recollections in the minds of a large' part of the audience. This evening "Maritana" will be sung. National Theater.?That very interesting play, "Jim the Penman," was weil acted at the National theater last night by a company which includes among its members Joseph Whiting, W. J. Fergnson, Clarence Handyside, Harry Eytinge. and May Brookyn. Harris' Bijou Theater.?De Mille and Bar nard's realistic railroad drama. "The Main Line." was given by a good company to the manifest delight of a large audience at Harris' last night. Much of the scenery and mechan ical effects used in the production is very in genious and the action is full of interesting and amusing incidents. People fond of sensational plays will And "The Main Line" well worth a visit. Mr. Hubert Sackett gave a manly and intelligent impersonation of the artist. Miss Laura Dinsmore, as a telegraph operator, won the immediate regard of the audience by her j bright ways and pretty face and figure. Keunan e Theater.?The Boston Ideal j "Uncle Tom's Cabin" Company gave the old drama with some new features and "business" at Kernan's last night. The audience was large and seemed to find a great deal to interest and amuse them in the familiar story. The Bischoff Concerts.?The closing pair of these entertainments will be given at Con gregational church this andto-morow evenings. I>r. Bischoff will give an organ recital each even ing. To-night he will be assisted bv Miss VesceliuH. contralto, of New York, and to-mor row night Miss Nellie Wilson will be the vo calist. The Cantata of "Queen Esther" will be repeated at Masonic Temple to-morrow evening for the benefit of Grace M. E. church. Ohio Republican Association. The Buckeye republicans held an enthusiastic meeting at their headquarters, 51C 9th street, last evening. Col. J. M. McCrew, presiding. A letter from Senator Sherman acknowledging receipt of certificate of membership as an hon orary mepiber was read. A resolution was passed congratulating Col. S. A. Whitfield, second assistant postmaster-general; Hon. Thos. B. Coulter, sixth auditor of the Treasury; Maj. E. G. Hathbone, chief inspector of the Post-Office department; and lion. Geo. W.

Mavse a committee to wait on Senator Sherman and arrange a convenient time for the association to call and pay their respects to him before his trip to Europe. Sheridan Commandery.

Yeager; major, M. B. C. Wright; chaplain. J. E. Engel; surgeon, William Grim stead; officer of djyr, William P. Seville; officer of guard. T. J. Iiiegart; quartermaster. Philip Metzgar: adjutant. R.

Mr. Lemuel Williams, the veteran under taker of the West End, died yesterday in the eighty-fifth year of his age, at his residence, No. 1707 Pennsylvania avenue, a few blocks from the place of his birth. Mr. Williams was one of the few residents of the District who remembered the destruction of the capitol by the British in 1815.

The deceased after attending the schools near his home learned the trade of cabinet making and under taking with his eldest brother. James Williams. He was ten years old when the British invaded Washington and remembered well the exciting scenes about that time. He remembered weil the erection of the Foundry M. E. church, of which he became a member over sixty years ago. and remembered when the First Baptist church was on the site of the Nineteenth-street Baptist church, at the corner of I street, long before its removal to 10th street, between E and F. the building now occupied by the sur geon general's office. As early as 1825 the de ceased was a member of the "old Union Fire company, and was also for years a member of the band of the Washington guards, a military organization commanded by the late Col. Sea to n. When a young man he was a good singer, and for many years led the choir of the Foundry church. Mr. Williams served a num ber of terms in the city councils. He always had the respect of those who knew him. As an undertaker he assisted at the obsequies of President William Henry Harrison.

Stid to Have Been Assaulted by ? Xtgro. A mysterious case of alleged assault is being investigated by the police of the South Wash ington police ?tation. A white woman, named Cora Monroe, about forty Tears old is the i victim. Her home is at No. 327 Maryland are ' nue southwest.

That's where we pro pose to remain. That's where you can always find us?ahead in all things pertain ing to the wants of the rising generation. From our impregnable position we ran offord to look pityingly on the noisy claims of the buyers of ''Job lots," and on their frantic efiorts to reach our plane of style and excel lence by such methods.
