Gallaudet and Georgetown College
Nines Won.
CURRENT SPORTIXGr NOTES
Joyce's "Giants" from New York begin
a series of four games with the local nine
this afternoon.
The concluding game of the first series
between the Wagnerites and the Brooklyn
Dodgers was won Saturday afternoon by
the visitors, 0 to 8. It was the second la
dies' day of the season, and their favorite,
Winnie Mercer, pitched for the homt' team,
and up to the sixth inning it was about an
even thing. But after the Washington peo
ple had added two runs in that inning,
making their total six to three for their ad
versaries, Tommy Tucker started an on
slaught on Mr. Mercer's curves which add
ed six runs to their score. No more were
made until the local players scored twice,
but could not squeeze in the two necessary
to win. Brown and Wrigley each made an
error, while LaChance, Tucker and Hull
man were the offenders on the side of the
visitors. The home people made eleven hits
off Payne, while his supporters secured two
more from Mercer. The game was a rather
interesting one, but displayed the weak
ness of the home club through the absence
of lteitz and McHale.
The Baltimores made a winning rally in
the ninth, and beat the Bostons out by a
run, in a very evenly played game, by 3 to
2. McJames and Nichols were the contest
ing pitchers, the former having a shade the
better of the visitors" star twirler.
Scrappy Joyce's men finally won a game
frcm the Phillies by 14 to !>, Doheny set
tling down after the first inning, while the
heme talent tried -Donohue, Dunkle and
Murphy on the slab.
St. Louts, 13; ritlnliarg, 1.
There were no games In the west Satur
day, rain and wet grounds preventing, but
yesterday t'ne St. Louis won their first
game of th.i season, easily defeating the
P'ttsburgs by 13 to 1. Hughoy pitched for
the winners, and after Killen had beeli
knocked out of the box, the visitors sub
stituted Gardner, who did but little better.

In the schedule of the Intercollegiate Ath
letic Association of Maryland and the Dis

team of Johns Hopkins University at the
Maryland Athletic Club grounds, Baltimore,
by C to 5. The association includes, be
sides these two colljges, St. John's, West
ern Maryland and Maryland Agricultural
College; and Johns Hopkins has generally
been reckoned the strongest.
The victors won through brilliant battery
work and hard hitting. The fielding was
also a brilliant feature, in spit: of the few
errors, none of which contributed to the
home team's si-ore. Hopkins made a strong
rally In the latter part of the game, but

Gentlemen:
In March we had a freight wreck in our Hagerstown yard. Among the freight saved from
the wreck were about 477 pairs of Indies' Shoes which were consigned to yon. These Shoot
are in fair condition. The principal injury was from being thrown on the ground and spilled out
of the paper boxes, some getting wet and nearly all of them more or less soiled. As these shoes
bear your firm's name, we considered you could use them to better advantage than any other deal
er, so will be glad to receive an offer for them. Awaiting an early reply, we remain.
Yours, very truly,
From a

The Mont SnccesHfiil In (lip Illxtory
of the WivMhlngton Club.
The most successful meeting in the his
tory of tho Washington Jockey Club closed
at the Benning track Saturday afternoon,
when the largest crowd seen at a local
lace course for many years witnessed the
sport. The attendance of ladles was par
ticularly large, and their bright costumes
made the grand stand and club house bal
cony brilliant with color. The gathering
was a distinguished one. official, diplomatic
and social circles being well represented.
The Marine Band rendered a program of
patriotic and popular music, and added
much to the pleasure of the occasion.
The card called for five races, four on
the flat and the fifth one over the full
steeplechase course. The second race, the
first Washington Nursery stakes, of $4.1*10
value, was the richest race run for here for
very many years. It was for two-year
olds, at half a mile. Fil^jrane, It. W. Wal
den & Sons' bay colt, by Imported Galore,
out of Killette, the 7 to 10 favorite, won
easily from start to finish, beating Caout
chouc two lengths, she several more
lengths in front of Counsellor Wernberg.
The winner carried 118 pounds, and Kittle
field merely had to sit still, the distance be
ing run. after thirty-five minutes spent at
the post, in 00% seconds.
The third race was the Washington han
dicap. at a mile, and six went to the post.
The event had special interest for the local
race go';rs. as Thomas Cat, one of the
starters, whs purchased a few days age
by Mr. W. C. Kustis. Trainer Burcli
thought the horse could hardly beat Ban
ncck. but Mr. Kustis' entry, getting off
fourth, gradually forged to the front, win
ning a good race by beating Bannock a
length, ha being a head In front of Don't i
Care. The result was n very popular one, I
and Mr. Kustis was heartily congratulated
upon nis success.
The third stake race of the day was fifth,
the Benning full-course steeplechase. Tho
starters were Decapod, Jack Pot. Mars
Chan and Ingot. They finished in that or
der, Byrne riding a beautiful race on th-j
winner. Varus, the even money favorite,
won the first race, and Gen. Mart. Gary, a
second choice, won the fourth, for maiden
two-year-old?.

Washington Turns Out En Masse to Witness

Itrown-llaUed Men ?>f the Nallonul
Guard ( hecreil on Their Wiij ?
Street Scene*.
The department clerks ami those em
ployed in the business houses did not have
the streets and street cars to themselves
as usual between 8:30 and fl o'clock this
morning. Scores of other people, who sel
dom move out doors until an hour or two
later were early astir, and by 8 o'clock
there were lines of blue-coated, brown- !
hatted and brown-Ieggined men, young,
lusty, vigorous and expectant striding
sturdily in the direction of National Guard
headquarters at Center market. They
went in couples and threes and more, but
a large number of them were accompanied
by their mothers or sisters, wives or sweet
hearts, the anxious faces of the latter
showing in strong contrast to their loved
ones' eager countenances. When the part
ing place came at the bridge leading to the
armory there were many tears shed and
many kisses exchanged, but each brave
fellow went over with a load of good
wishes and loving counsels to cheer him
on the way. I
There was an Immense crowd present
when the various columns of the guard
turned out. and as they Hied away?pictures
of real war seen before in the capital city
by few now living?cheers went up spon
taneously.
Geaeronnljr Greeted.
The crowds were generous in their greet
ings, but. ot course, the scoffers and unbe
lievers were there.
"Dey luks mighty putty now," said a
doleful sore of an old darkey, with a por
tentous shake of his head, "but dey ain'
gwineter he so booUful when dey bin out
dar er chawin' hard tack an' er drinkin'
puddle water "bout two er tree munts."
The old man evidently had some incident
of the late war in his mind's eye.
"Vi?u fellows ought to be out there In
line," said a slick-looking young man with
an unmistakable southern accent, address
ing the old darkey. "There's a chance for
you now to pay the debt you owe for your
freedom."
"Huhi" ejaculated the other. "Freed'm.
Shuh, man, I'd jlst gib my rite ahm ter
hab dem slab'ry times back ergln!"
With this unanswerable argument the de
bate closed.
The crowds followed the soldiers along
up the avenue, and when the halt was
made and the soldiers turned back there
were all sorts of surmises as to the cause.
John Fitz, the irrepressible ex-king of the
newsboys, cocked his eye knowingly at a
crewd of the curious.
"Shure." he remarked paternally, "don't
ye know phwat's dthe matther? Whol, ole
Gin'l Roo&le Algy don't want dthe b'ys t'
git wit."
This humorous explanation seemed to be
ccr.tagious, and the tendency to fun on
that account was pretty widespread. But
even those who indulged in it were loud in
their praises of the way the Uistrlct,
Guardsmen bore themselves.
"So play soldiers in that crowd," said an
old retired army officer casting a critical
eye over the column. "They look business
from head to foot, every one of them."
The RecnilUc Ststlo*.
The turn out of tho guard inspired mar
tial desires In many hearts, and perhaps to
this was due the Increase in Inquiries at the
recruiting office of the 7th Regiment of Vir
ginia Volunteers. This is located in Cos
tello's Hall, on O street opposite the city
post office, the entrance being marked by
a hot-time-ln-the-old-town-tonight sort of a
sign, bearing in red and block letters the
following:
"War! War! Wart
Volunteers
Wanted.
7th Reg. Virginia Vol. Inf.
Col. Geo. Pickett.
/ Remember
The Maine!"
? crowd of boys and men loitered near
the door, before which paced a man clad In
uniform with form bent forward out of the
true military line. The reason for this was
evident when he turned in his stride and
displayed, hanging from his cartridge belt
In front of him. In a black holster, an im
mense plstoi.
The Virginia Volunteers will go over to

The use of the telephones in seventy
three drug stores scattered through The
city will l>e stopped Saturday next. This
was the announcement made at the mot-t
ing of the Pharmaceutical Assix-iutiori of
the District of Columbia, which was held
this morning in the College of Pharmacy,
on I street between fcth and "Jth streets
northwest. This result, however, was not
reached at the meeting this morning, as
the readers of The Star are aware. The
druggists of the city have takt-n a promi
nent iiart la the movement of the citizens
against the exactions and eharges of the
telephone company, und for some lime it
has been known that the members of the
association did not propose to renew con
tracts with the telephone company for the
coming year at the proposed tali**.
In the case of a majority of th? m?*ml>ers
the contracts expire Saturday, and it has
been decided to suuid together in this mat
ter and refuse to continue the use of ll.o
'phones.
The ItcNolulionx Idopted.
The meeting this morning was more for
the purpose of a final confrenee than any
thing else. The president of lh> association,
Mr. Robert X. Harper. announced lual
seveniy-tnree druggists had signed an
agreement which reads as follows:
"We, the m.'mhi rs ot the District of Co
lumbia Pharmaceutical Association, unani
mously agree hot to sign any of the con
tracts that have been submitted by the
Cl.esapeake and Potomac Telephone Com
pany.
"Further, we hereby agrei to continue
with our present contract, and unanimously
indorse the auiendme-nt to the District of
Columbia appropriation bill regulating I ho
telephone rates Ir. the District of Columbia,
which passed the House of KepresentaUves
February 2. ItslW
"We hereby agri e to the i-bove resolu
tions and will abide by the same."
It was staled that there were not more
than eignty-livi 'phones in use by the drug
gists of the city.
A Sew Proposition.
In the course of the Interchange of views
the fact was brought out that different
druggists had been approached in the In
terests of the telephone company with a
i proposition to sign a new contract, which
would be good for a month or two months,
and then for the balance of the year. If
the subscriber should so desire. The opin
ion was expressed that this was merely a
device to win over some of the druggists
so as to prevent united action against the
! company.
In view of the agreement they had signed.
It was stated by some of the meml?ers. they
had refused to accept a new contract.
The secretary was Instructed to notify
the signers of the agreement thai the use
of the telephones would cease Saturday,
and that the company was to be notified to
remove the 'phones, and also all wires from
the buildings.
The I llimatum.
To make use of a war time expression,
the druggists have Issued their ultimatum
to the telephone company, and Saturday It
will go it.to effect. It was stated that the
main reason why the druggists have taken
this action is becarse the regulations of
the company prevented the g^ant.ng of the
accommodation to the public which the
druggists had been accustomed to accord,
so that people are now obliged to pay when
they want to call a physician or to use '.he
'phones for some other emergency.
Proper notice of this action of the asso
ciation will be sent to the Association of
Telephone Subscribers and also to the
Medical Association.
Barracks at Peaaacola.
Orders have been given by Commodore
Endlcott. chief of the bureau of yards and

Fla., for 1300 men. They will be used for
the accommodation of men recruited for
the navy and who are awaiting assignment
