For fifty years the Schlitz agencies have followed white men's conquests. They are twenty years old in South Africa. Schlitz beer was famous in Siberia before a railroad was thought of. When Japan and China first began to awake, Schlitz beer was advertised in their newspapers. Almost as soon as Dewey captured Manila 216 car loads of Schlitz were sent there. Today Schlitz agencies so dot the globe that when it is midnight at one it is noon day at another. The quality by which Schlitz beer has won distinc tion has been its absolute purity.

The gloomy weather kept down the attendance, but those pres ent witnessed one of the most entertaining games of the season, which Washington won by the score of 8 to 4. Case Patten was on the rubber for the Senators, and his work was of the medal deserving order. Although he served out four free passes to first, his exhibition of ntrve and accuracy in the six_h inning was simply remarkable and will afford a topic for conversation for the next month. Brodie and Jackson, the first two batters up, had led off with singles and Bresnahan was given a base on balls, the wet ball troubling Patten. Here were three men on bases, no one out and defeat staring the Senators in the face. Karns, the fourth batter, was struck out; the best McGraw could do was a short fly to left, which kept the runners hugging the bases, and Mike Donlin, a splendid hitter, fanned the air three times, making the third out. The small band of enthusiasts went wild with glee and the applause and shouts continued for several minutes. Jerry Nops began twirling for Baltimore, but he is not a good mud horse, and as a result he was hit hard from the start, a triple to the right-field fence by Coughlin In the third inning sending him to the bench. Young Karns, who used to play with the Eastern Athletic club of this city and who is now on the Oriole payroll, re lieved Nops, but his work was ragged, on account of the wet ball. Karns passed the first three batters to first on balls in the fifth inning, but he then pulled himself to gether, Patten hitting into a double play, and only one run resulted. Aside from the good performance of Patten, the shortstop work of Billy Cling man was full of fireworks and really saved the game for Washington. He is credited with only two assists, but they were so re markable as to take the life out of the visitors. Billy's iirst chance came in the fourth, when Brodie hit a slow grounder through the pitcher's box. Clingman ran Into the diamond it full speed, coppered the ball and threw to first without straight ening up, the batter being retired by the narrowest of margins. In the fifth the greatest play of the day was pulled off by "Cling." Two runs had been scored, through Coughlin'3 excusable error, and matters looked blue for the Senators. There were two out wh^n Kelster came to the bat, and the little fellow can hit the ball. But Patten put tne ball over the plate and Keister sent ihe ball on a line drive over second. Clingman found the going hard, but he did Ids best and grabbed the ball back of second with one hand and made a nice pass to Farrell, who covered second. The play shut off the rally and the enthusiasts for the minute forgot Billy's batting weakness and cheered him to the echo. In addition to his brilliant work in the field Clingman was a batter yesterday. He ,?ot in a nice single, was passed to first on balls, so that his batting average yesterday was 1,000. The new first baseman. Jordan, got start ed right yesterday, and his work showed a decided improvement. He fielded perfect ly and rapped out a timely double and a single. Catcher Clarke played his first game for quite a period, and his work was strictly gilt-edged, his timely drive in the first Inning sending the first two runs across the plate. The Senators began doing business with Nops right at the start. After Waldron had been retired Farrell was passed to first, and then Gear hit a grounder to Jerry. He picked up the ball clean, but made a bad throw to Williams, and both runners were safe. Clarke then came forward with his beautiful drive, and Farrell and Gear crossed the plate. Dungan then flew out to left, but Jordan got in his first hit and Clarke scored. Clingman and Waldron got hits in the second, but flies to the out and infield pre vented a run being scored. In the third the Senators hung up four tallies. After Gear had been retired on a fly to left Clarke singled over second and Dungan was given a base on balls. Jordan then drove out a timely double to left center, Clarke scoring and Dungan going to third. Coughlin then banged a liner to the center field fence, clearing the bases, and crossed the plate himself on Williams' bad throw to third. The Senators' final tally came In the fifth, as already told. The Orioles secured their first run in the fourth, on Williams' double and two outs at first. In the fifth three birdlets crossed the plate* as a result of two bases on balls, Coughlin's error and two hits. The Baltlmores had been retired without a run in the sixth, and Washington was at the bat. when Umpire Haskell called the game off, as the rain was then falling very fast. Score: Wash'gton.

Extraordinary Time Expected by tlie Motors at tlie Coliseum. The four motor teams for tonight's races at the Coliseum arrived at the track last evening, and began at once to get their motors in condition for the live and ten mile races. These cycles are all new ones, with the latest improvements, and all fitted with four-horse power motors. Each team expresses confidence in its ability to win, and the racers say that with the motors In perfect order, and on the fastest six lap track in the world, they will break all records. Every one is betting that he will win. Joe Nelson, the boy wonder, has arrived with his motor "Black Joe." He is a midget, and how he holds pace with a four horse motor is surprising. He is in fine form, he says, and will smash the five-mile paced record made at Buffalo Wednesday. By riding in Baltimore last night he is on edge, and he says he will ride faster than he ever has done. One of the features of tonight's meet will be a match race between H. G. Quail of the ninth precinct and A. C. Lynn of the eighth. These officers rode in an Austra lian pursuit race last Friday night, and there was great excitement over the award of the race to OflScer Lynn, a great many persons claiming that Lynn never passed Quail. They have decided to race tonight, each taking opposite sites of the track? and riding a pursuit to a finish. It will be an exciting contest, as both men say they will win. The races booked for Baltimore last night were postponed until Friday night. This Is favorable for Washington patrons, as the motors will be in fine order, with new tires. Joe Nelson will be fresh and fine. Spectacular and thrilling races can be looked for. The motor racers will be called on at 9 o'clock n.m. sharp. The winners of each of the five-mile heats will ride in a final of ten miles. Nelson Yellow Boy motor made a mile on the local track this morning in 1 min ute 21 8-5 seconds. Nelson's Yellow Boy motor made a mile ute 22 seconds, ani this with the track in a damp condition from yesterday's rain. With clear weather the track will be in perfect condition for this evening's races. BIG HARNESS RACES. Onward Silver Won the Bonner Me morial In Grand Style. Onward Silver won the Bonner Memorial, a $5,000 purse, at Brighton Beach yesterday from a field of game and fast horses, and showed once more that he Is one of the best racing trotters In America. He has started four times so far this season and has not been beaten, though each of his races was a split heat affair. Thia event was the feature of the pro gram, and speculation on It was about as lively as could be. May Allen was a slight favorite In the opening betting, but after the first heat her price was almost any thing one might have wished to make it. Onward Silver reeled off the mile In 2.10%, fighting his way through a field of ten and winning handsomely. He broke Just after leaving the wire in the second heat and did likewise on the backstre<tch in the third. This gave Dolly Dillon and Cor nelia Belle each a heat, but the heats they scored were mere baits. In good time On ward Silver went to the front and won the fourth and fifth miles and the race. Hetty G. won the 2.00 pace in fast time, and in each heat she had to extend herself fully. Riley B. and Bonny Direct each tried to collar her, but their efforts were about as effectual as the traditional water on the duck's back. The finish in the third mile was one long to be remembered. Ri ley B. and Hetty G. fought it out from the three-quarter pole home, and the mare won by only a half length in 2.06%, the fastest mile of the race. She was a strong favor ite in the beating from start to finish. The victory of Capt. Bracken in the 2.24 trot was something of a surprise to the ad mirers of Easter and Henrietta. The for mer won the opening heat, but each time after that she gave it up on the home stretch like a quitter of the yellowest dye. WOUND IP IN A DRIFT. Conntltutton-ColnmMa Contest a Draw for Want of Wind. After a drifting match of three hours and forty minutes yesterday off Newport the Columbia and Constitution gave up the race and were towed back to the city. At that time the wind had fallen to a flat calm, neither boat had steerage way and the outer mark was stiil over four miles away. The race will not be resalled today, as both boats have to be on hand for the Larchmont event tomorrow. When the race was given up there was notning to choose between the two yachts. So fkr as could be Judged the distances to the turn ing buoy were about equal. The Constitution was the first to run Into the calm streak, being then about an eighth of a mile ahead and slightly to windward. The Columbia carried her wind a little longer and ran up on even terms. Then for half an hour there was not wind enough to stir the "racing pennants, and seeing no hope of a finish till long after dark, at 8:22 both boats gave it up. CHESS TOURNEY. Pillsbury Compelled to Draw With HowelL Play in the tournament of the New York State Chess Association was continued Tues day night at Buffalo. The Interest centered in the game of Pillsbury vs. Marshall, a queen's gambit declined by the latter In novel fashion. He held his own through out the middle game, but lost In the end ing. It was brilliantly played by Pillsbury in thirty-three moves. Karplnski did well In a Sicilian defense, wherein Napier played poorly at the outset, but later re trieved his position, emerging with the bet ter ending. Karplnski played Into his hands and has a lost game. Delmar selected a queen's gambit, which Howell declined, the game being scored prettily by the former after an exciting contest of thirty-eight moves.

The Cadillac won one. The In vader Is built rather for light winds r?nd smooth sea. These prevailed during the cup races. The Cadillac had weather to her liking but one day, the first, when she won easily. The Invader won yesterday's race with comparative ease. Up to the first buoy it was a very even race, and one of the pret tiest ever seen on Lake Michigan. Both the skippers were on their mettle, and honors were fairly even all the way, al though Thompson scored over his rival at the start. All kinds of maneuvers marked the trip to the first buoy, and here the race was really decided. It looked for a time as if Thompson wouht round the stake first, and If he had it is more than prob able that he would have been able to hold his advantage on the run home, for it was in Just that kind of a run that he gained over the Invader in Saturday's race.

So far the record stands six victories for Washington and four for Detroit. Jordan has been receiving a great deal of encouragement from the right field crowd, which generally roasts everybody to a turn. The Baltimore crowd wanted yesterday's game in the worst way and resorted to cheap tactics to win out. one of the breaks being in trying to foul Coughlin, who was running for a high fly. Leon DeMontreville, who was injured in a trolley accident near Syracuse some time since, is home, and has to go about on crutches. Leon would like to get his re lease from the Syracuse club, but the man agement refuses and has not paid him a c?nt.since his injuries. The Detroit aggregation arrived in Wash ington late last night, and every man is in the pink of condition. The pitching staff has been doing good work, and Magnate Burns wants all the games in this city. "No, I don't believe that Brooklyn will be dropped," says President Ebbetts of Brooklyn. Just the same, there are those who say that Freedman has decided that Brooklyn must go, and what Freedman says goes nowadays. So far as slugging Is concerned, Sam Crawford of Cincinnati is making a much better showing that the mighty Delehanty, who held the honor of the league's pre mier long-distance hitter for years. And Sam is a young man still. Manager McGraw of the BaJtimores yes terday received a letter from President Ban Johnson, stating that he would fix the period of suspension of First Baseman Hart for assaulting Umpire Haskell at ten days, beginning August 6. He also im posed a fine of $25. Hart will be eligible to play tomorrow. So far the season has been a highly prof itable one for the National League, despite the opposition of the American leaguers in Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago. A prominent club owner a few days ago said that every team in the league will make good money this year. Hanlon has a harder proposition con fronting him this year than he bad last season. Then he had only one team to fight for the leadership, and now he has three, each of which is traveling at a clip that threatens to leave the Brookiyns far behind. Pitcher Claude Elliott and Fielder David Jones of the Rockford dub of the Tristate League, the acknowledged stars of the minor leagues this season, were signed by the Milwaukee club for next season yes terday. Elliott has won twenty-seven of thirty-three games pitched. Jones leads the league in batting, with an average of 415. It had been reported that Brooklyn had signed Elliott, but such is not the case. Cincinnati and Chicago were both after the two men. There is no denying the fact that there is a vast amount of smoke hanging over the base ball horizon just at present, and if there is any truth in the old saying of "Where there Is smoke there is fire," the aforesaid fire 's apt to break oub at any moment, which will mean plenty of fuel for the lovers of the great national game. Jim Hart and Ban Johnson are talking peace. Both admit it. Johnson says: "While it might be better for us to go along as at present, ior the public likes a fight, I dread a winter campaign. Wo have kept clean no far and intend to do so, but the bickering and scrambling for players, charges and counter charges will hurt the game. A base ball war rarely lasts two seasons, one or the other of the organisations going to the wall. It is prob ably better to compromise, but there are so many angles the situation is a trying ona." Col. Rogers of the Phillies was quoted yesterday as having said that he is now and has always been kept constantly in formed of the doings of the American League, and is, therefore, in a position to meet the Johnsonites at every turn and frustrate their plans.

If Brooklyn jumps to the American there will be a foothold for Johnson hi Greater New York and no expense either. Further more, it is said that when the Brooklyn club finds it compulsory to take an Amer ican League franchise, the name on the players' uniforms will readily be changed to "New York." This is the Brooklyn trump card. John T. Brush's usually even temper was somewhat ruffled yesterday at Indianapolis on account of the story sent out from Chi cago to the effect that a Cincinnati busi ness man had told President Ban John son of the American League that the Cin cinnati base ball plant was for sale at a stated price. Mr. Brush said: "This is about the thousandth time that the Cin cinnati club has been sold or placed on the market without consulting Its chief own er. Please hang a hundred denials on your sale of ball club hook,, to be used from day to day, iis the fakes appear, and when they are used up I'll give you an other bunch." Mr. Brush says he will b? in the base ball business at Cincinnati next year, notwithstanding all stories to the contrary. "Give me a couple of men like Caruth ers and Foutz again and I could win any pennant in the country," says Comiskey. "Those were the ^ame fellows. They play ed base ball because they liked it and be cause they liked to win. Do you remember when I played that world's championship *ith Chicago and won It?when I was with St. Louis? If ever two pitchers got in their work, Foutx and Caruthers did then. After losing the first game here Carutfeers said he wanted to pitch. 'I will win. Cap. There's nothing to it. I have got to pitch this game.' I let him pitch it, and he won. but before he began he asked me to promise him another chance on the following day. I had to make good after he won the game, but I lost the third contest myself by muffing a hard ily. Then we went down to St. Louis, where we won three straight games and the world's championship. Ca ruthers pitched in two of them. He would not listen to any other man going into the box, and be would have pitched the whole six games if I had let him."?Chicago Beo> ord-Herald.
