POLLUTION OFTHE POTOMAC District Commissioners Requested to Take Measures to Prevent It i<iueduct Authorities* Point Out Their Inability to Do So?Some Inter esting; Correspondence. The Washington Team Took a Best | Yesterday. Dr. William Pope Young, secretary of UTie District of Columbia Game and Fish Protectee Association, recently addressed a letter to the District Commissioners, calling their attention to the recent article In The Evening Star describing how the Potomac was being polluted by the body of a d-ad horse In the river at Edward's Ferry, a few miles above Great Fall?. The Commissioners referred Dr. Youns's letter to Colonel Theodore A. Hinghnip. In charge of the Washington aqueduct, wbo yesterday replied to it. In the course of his communication to Dr. Young, Colonel Bingham wrote: "This office has Invariably tried, so far as lay witain its limited means, to prevent or cure such occurrences as you apeak of, but It hes never been possible to extend this supervision above Seneca dam, which Is about eight miles above Great" Fails. So far as this "Aire knows, there is no authority, further than perhaps the local authorities along the banks of the river, charged with keeping pollution out of the Potomac river. With its limited means it Is absolutely impossible for this office to exercise such supervision as would be necessary, and I doubt if there is legal authority for th-j assumption of such Supervision. "Undoubtedly, such supervision should be exercised, and this office will be glad to co-operate as far as may be possible." Upon rcceipt of this letter. Dr. Young Pent a copy of it to the District Commis sioners, requesting them to refer the mat ter, so vital to the citizens of the national capital, to the Maryland authorities, whose Jurisdiction over the Potomac is claimed to extend to low water mark on the Vir ginia shore. If necessary, it was suggest ed, appeal should be made to Congress. RESULTS OF WESTERS GAMES Gossip From Cincinnati About the Club. CURRENT SPORTING NOTES Todny's Schedule and Weather.

Earl Wagner, the president and owner of the Washington club, who is one of the most enthusiastic rooters in the profession, was so sick Sunday that he could not leave the hotel. It is the first game play ed by the Washington club in five years, at home or abroad, that President Wag ner has missed. He makes It a practice to make all the trips with his team. There are few better posted base ball men than Earl Wagner. He knows the game in all its most minute parts. The question of abandoning the double umpire system was introduced during the course of a conver sation with the president of the Washing ton club last night. "I will strenuously oppose any move ment looking to the reduction of the pres ent staff of umpires," said President Wag ner. "Not only will 1 oppose It, but I am of the opinion that there will be a howl go up from the public if an attempt is made to go back to the old system of um piring. No matter what a few grumblers may say. the present system of umpiring has been a great success." "What clubs are in favor'of reducing the staff of umpires?" was asked. "None that 1 know of but the St. Irfiuis and Louisville clubs," was President Wag ner's reply. "They argue that the times are too hard to carry such a big staff of umpires. It would be a bad policy to cut off such a fine feature on account of a few dollars. If the staff of umpires was to be reduced to six it would save each club about $700 or $800. It would be a nice thing to go before the public w!th such a plea. Another thing, there is not the necessity for retrenchment that there was some time ago. Everywhere the in terest in base ball is increasing. The at tendance at all the parks is on the mend. Now that the interest in the war has sub sided a little, the people are coming back to base ball. I expect the season to be a gcod one after all. Here is something I teceived tonight from President Young." said President Wagner, at the same time displaying a circular from the head of the National League. The circular requested President Wagner to name the men on the piesent staff of umpires who. In his opin ion, were Incompetent. "Every club in the league received one of these circulars." said President Wagner. "I presume this circular Is to get a line on the ability of the umpires to guide him in his efTorts to improve his staff. There will be no trouble about my reply to that circular. I will tell him that the present staff is perfect ly satisfactory. We have only lost one game* this season through bad umpiring. That game was with the Clevelands. My team is a mystery to me." "In what way?" was asked. "It is a mystery what good ball they put up against good teams and what bum ball they play against the poorer members of the league." was the reply. "They play ball to suit the team they are up against. Look at the kind of bail they played against Baltimore and Boston. " We won one out of three from Boston and three out of the last four from Baltimore. On top of that wh go to Louisville and lose three out of four to the Colonels. If we could play against the Colonels anything like the ball we do against the top noteh ers, we would make a clean sweep. That is the trouble. We fall down at the most unexpected times and places."

What the Porkopolls Papers Say About the Senatorial UutHt. Those Senators know a whole lot about batting. Everybody on the team except Si Swalm can "blngle," and even old Si "put one down," and beat it out in yesterday's game. He was cheered to the echo. "I can't remember the time that Pink Hawley evefc won a game from us," said Earl Wagner in the grand stand yesterday while the game was going on. "He has pitched good ball against us, but when we were not hitting there would be a 'break' that would whip his side." The Washington and Cincinnati teams went to St. Louis on the same train last night. President Wagner and Captain Ewlng will have a chance to talk the Sel bach matter over again, and the negotia tions may yet result In Selbach coming here to .ielp out the Reds. It Is understood that Wagner not only wants big money for Sel bach, but a couple of pluyers thrown in "to boot." It was positively painful to witness the futile efforts of the Cincinnati Reds to hit Our New Credit Way.

It was not a Nichols, a Rusie or a Oor bett that made the pioud league leaders "pop up" little flies, or start very weak kneed. spindle-shanked grounders on their trip that almost invariably ended with the painful "You're out" of the umpire. There was no "on the side" healing balm for yesterday's knockdown. It was no one but tall, lanky, plain old SI Swaim, the Cadwallader schoolmaster, who stood on the slab and dealt out the occult to the local crew of club swingers. Old Si Just toyed with the national topnotchers like they were a lot of Reubs from the neigh boring "deestrict." He put on all the shoots and curves and slants that he had In his repertoire, and, after a disgraceful exhibition by the localites, the ninth inning found them with four little hits to their credit, or rather discredit. Think of four hits, one of them doubtful, and another a bunt as the aggregate ef forts of a team at the head of the league against a pitcher of SI Swaim's caliber. "Earl said that all of his players, except McGulre, were for sale," said Captain Ewing. "From that statement you would think he wanted to sell. When you dicker with him you will find that his players are for sale like the Cincinnati players are. I suppose President Brush would sell any player's release that he has on the pay roll, provided he was offered^ enough money. If he got an otter of $50,000 for McPhee's release I suppose he would take It. The same price would get Corcoran. That is the way It Is with Wagner. Of course, no such sum as $50,000 figures In the contemplated deal, but the figure he has named for the player we have talked about is so exorbitant as to be beyond all reason." From this the opinion is formed that President Wagner has asked a fortune for Selbach's release. Boston, Of Pittsburg, 5.

Two victories in St. Louis and the re cord of the Senators on this trip will be the best ever made by a Washington club. One win will make it five victories out of twelve games, also a good record. Selbach made two errors in the two games in Cincinnati. Both were muffs of easy flies. Bert Myers got to first every time he went to bat in Sunday's game, draw'ng three bases on balls and making two hits. The Senators' first run on Sunday was made by Anderson, who was hit by a pitched ball, stole second and third and went home on a wild pitch. The Cincinnati papers are stuck on the Senatorial outfield and will gladly take' either Selbach. Anderson or Gettman ofr of Mr. Wagner's hands, Gettman's speedy pedaling patching their eye especially. A rousing reception awaits the Washing ton club's return to National Park next Monday morning. The club Is plnying great ball and should make a sensational lecord during the sixteen straight games that begin with next Monday. The Cleveland club has started a whole sale transfer of games. Yesterday thry completed arrangements to play the games scheduled for Cleveland with the Browns in St. Louis. St. Louis was a great base ball center yesterday. Four National League teams were In the mound city, the Cincinnati, Baltimore, Washington and the home ciubs. and of course there was lots of base ball talk on tap. Hanlon has received a flattering offer to play the Fourth of July games In Phila delphia which are scheduled for Baltimore, but has concluded to refuse. Each club gets half the receipts on holidays and as the Phillies are playing good ball now, it Is safe to say that 25,000 persons will wit ness the two games on that day, as against about 8,000 In the oyster city. Chicago Is also after Hanlon to transfer games to that city. A special from Boston says that GalTney will begin work for the parent organiza tion next Monday. Presidents Brush and Soden brought pressure to bear on Mr. Young, it is said, and brought about the change of mind. Gaffney has had about six chances to behave himself while act ing as an umpire, but each time went by the board. Now It Is said that the once king has not touched liquor for nearly a year, and is in good condition. HOBART AND MS1IET DEFEATED. Americana Played Well, bat (be En glish Champions Won. In the lawn tennis tournament at Wim bledon, England, yesterday the brothers Doherty, holders of the doubles, beat Ho bart and Nlsbet, 6-4, 0-4, 6-2, for the cham pionship. It was a much harder contest than the score indicates. The American expert, Ho bart, was especially brilliant, at times sending the balls at such a pace that the Dohertys could not handle them. But both Hobart and Nlsbet were Irregular. Many of their balls went out of court and Into the net, and the steadiness ana accuracy of the champions finally won each set. RECORD OF DEATHS.

COURSE TO BE TffiEJ AT MAMA Dewey Will Demand Capitulation When Reinforcfem&nts Coma AUQUSTI'S GLOOMY REPORT LONDON, June 29.?The Dally News pub lishes the following dispatch rrom Berlin: "The following semi-official note has been published here, apparently with the object of preparing the world for the landing of German marines at Manila: " 'As yet no statement has reached here about the landing of German marines at Manila, but It Is a matter of course that Admiral von Diederichs will interfere as soon as it may become necessary for the protection of Germans there. Such a meas ure would have no political significance whatever. Neither at Washington nor at Madrid have negotiations occurred on this matter.' ??The assurance that a landing of marines would have no political significance is very nice. The only question is whether the United States and other powers will share this opinion, or whether the other powers will see in the landing, an act of interfer ence compelling them to follow suit. Denry'a Intention*. LONDON, June 2!).?The Daily Telegram prints today an article from Manila which says: "The report that Germany will not per mit a bombardment is exciting deep irri tation in the American fleet. Admiral Dewey intends to demand a capitulation the Instant reinforcements arrive. He told Prince Henry of Prussia that he would be glad to see the German officers at Man ila, but It would be well to caution them to keep out of the American line of fire. It remains to be seen whether Germany has really given such promises as are pretended. "Two attempts have been made on the life of Gen. AgulnaMo, in order to secure the reward placed on .his head by Capt. Gen. Augusti. "The United States cruiser Boston has gone to Bolinao to establish there, so it is reported, a base of operations. Capt. Gen. Augusti has arranged a conference with the foreign admirals, presumably on the subject of protection for the lives of non combatants. "The situation Is growing unbearable. The population is in a state of terror. No details have leached here as to the fate of Capt. Gen. Augusti's family. The provin cial garrisons have been starved into sur render. The belief, first entertained, that Germany would help Spain Is growing faint er, and it Is now feared that she will share in the partition of the Philippines. There are now seven German warships in the bay." The Hong Kong correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, telegraphing Tuesday, says: "I have consulted with the German authorities, who declfrte 'unanimously and emphatically that thei reports from Manila of German interference are Impossible. Whatever the Spanish, ;ma.y have done, the German admiral has held out no such hopes or promise." Manila Mast Fall Soon. Madrid advices, da(gd. yesterday, state that the government has received the fol lowing dispatch from. Captain General Au gusti, at Manila on June.^3: "The situation is sfi|l grave. I continue to maintain my opposition inside the line of blockhouses, but tl^e en^.my is increasing in numbers, as the rebels occupy the prov inces, which are surrendering. Torrential rains are inundating' the' intrenchments, rendering the work ofcdclenso difficult. The numbers of sick among the troops are in-* creasing, making the situation very dis tressing and causing ^ucreased desertions of the native soldiers. "It is estimated that the insurgents num ber 30,000 armed with rifles and 11*0,000 armed with swords, etc. "Aguinaldo has summoned me to surren der, but I have treated his proposals with disdain, for I am resolved to maintain the sovereignty of Spain and the honor of the flag to the last extremity. "I have over 1,000 sick and 200 wounded. "The citadel has been invaded by the suburban inhabitants, who have abandoned their homes owing to the barbarity of the rebels. These Inhabitants constitute an em barrassment. aggravating the situation, in view of the bombardment, which, however. Is not seriously apprehended for the mo ment. "The governor of the Vlsayas and Min danao Islands cables that he has defeated the Insurgents In an engagement, during which Chief Arco, Aguinaldo's representa tive, was killed. He adds that tranquillity now prevails throughout these Islands, and he further asserts that the principal Malay chiefs of the Mindanao group declare they desire to fight on the side of the Spaniards against the invaders." The rebels who are besieging Manila ex ceed 25,000 men. The city Is completely Isolated, and the arrival of the Spanlgh squadron Is anxious ly awaited, for the position of Manila & un tenable. CAMARA'S StU'ADROX. It !? Stated That They Ape In Sean ilalouH Disrepair. LONDON, June 29.-A Port Said dispatch to the Dally Chronicle ctatjs: "Admiral Camara's squadron Is in. a most slovenly condition. The bottoms of most of his ships are foul, and the repairing of the machinery of the torpedo-boat de stroyer Audaz would take at least a week. The Buenos Ayres, Isla da Panay, Cova donga and Colon have been removed to berths assigned to ships likely to make a long stay. The captain of the Pelayo has landed his sick.

The Cairo correspondent of the Dally 1 Mail says: "Lord Cromer has stopped a French firm from coaling Admiral Ca mara's squadron, pending Instructions from London." A dispatch to the Dally Mall from Port Said Bays: "A distinguish 3d naval officer, who has examined Admiral Camara's ships carefully, laughs at the Idea of Admiral Camara attempting to reach Manila. The Spaniards, he says, are wise to keep the flfcet out of the Americans' way.

Kelly against William 8toa4 Abert, Glenn Brown, David T. Cfskelll John Schneider and Chas. F. Schneider Was brought to an unexpected close In ?trcylt Court No. 1, Judge Cole presiding, at 11 o'clock this morning. The plaintiff In the ease desired to amend in an Important particular the original declaration. It appeared from the evidence that there i^s ay unused well be neath the building, and as this might have had a bearing on the, case. It was deemed advisable to include the fact in the declara tion. This was objected to by counsel for. the defendants, who Insisted on the continu ance of the trial. The plaintiff's attorneys then bad a juror withdrawn, Snd the case went over to the fall term of court. The suit Is one for $10,000 damages, and grows out of-the collapse of the new build ing at 1200 and 1211 Pennsylvania avenue northwest during the wind storm of Sep tember, 1890. The plaintiff, Mr. Kelly, was proprietor of a restaurant, situated next to the Abert building, which was totally de molished by the falling walls of the larger structure. Kelly claims that the collapse of the Abert building was due to defective construction. . The case had been on trial for several days, and much expert testimony was be ing taken, when the interruption occurred, .The trial will probably not be resumed un til qpxt October.

Arthur Holloway, a young man. aged twenty-one years, who says his home is in Clem, near Carroiltc n, Carroll county, Ga? was today sent to jail by Judge Kim jail for six months for having a pistol and a pair of brass knuckles concealed on his person. He was also required to give a bond for for his future good behavior or serve three months additional in the work house. Holloway was arrested last evening shortly after St o'clock by Detectives Par ham, Hartigan and Phillips for alleged suspicious conduct on Pennsylvania ave nue. The evidence showed that Holloway went to a house on fith street northwest, where furnished looms are rented. and tried to secure f room for the night. As he had no baggage and acted in a manner that the proprietor of the house did not like, he wao refused admission. He after ward went to another house in the same neighborhood, where he had a similar ex perience. Holloway then went down Cth street to Pennsylvania avenue, being followed by the man who had refused him admission to his house, and the latter there met the detectives, whose attention was called to Holloway. The suspect was seen to go from one saloon ir.to another. Detective Hartigan followed him into one finally an 1 noticed that he seemed to be taking very particular notice of every man in the bar loom. As so'in cs he left the place De tective Hartigan stopped Holloway and de manded that he explain his previous ac tions. Almost at the same instant Hartigan no ticed that Holloway's clothing was bulged out, and upon examination it was found that he hail a pistol in his hip pocket, llo was then taken into custody and after ward searched. Detective Parham found in the prisoner's possession a pair of knuckles. Detective Phillips also found in one of Holloway's pockets two letters, one of which was signed "Eva" and was written from Clem. The second was signed L. Harris and dated at the same place. The MmanKM. In the first named letter "Eva" said she was sorry to hear about Holloway's shooting scrape, but glad it was no worse than it was. The writer also warned Hol loway to keep out of gambling- places, as If he frequented them he would be sure to get into trouble. In the second letter, which Is signed "L.. E. Harris" and evidently written by a woman, the writer speaks of how lonesome she is because of Holloway's long-contin ued absence, and informs him that she has attended to some little matters, as he had asked her to do, and hopes to see him soon at her Georgia home. In reply to questions from Judge Kimball Holloway said there was absolutely no foundation for the reference in "Eva's" letter to a shooting scrape except that In a letter to Miss Harris he. In a spirit of "kidding." wrote that he had been in trou ble of that kind. Merely >? Exrnae, To a Star reporter Holloway said he wrote to his friend that he had shot a man In Columbia, S. C., and had visited gam bling places, but that he did so to offer a reason why he had been so long in reaching Washington, his destination. As for shooting any one he had not done so, nor did he gamble. Upon leaving home, shortly before Christmas, he said, he went to Arkansas to visit some of his "kin folks," and thence went to Florida, where he remained awhile. But a day or two since he reached Washington. He explain ed that when going from one place to an other, as he did last evening on the avenue, he was trying to find the place where he stopped the night before, ?.nd as for the weapons, .they came into his "possession le gitimately and lie was 110; aware that he was violating any law by carrying them.
