Yesterday's rain knocked out the double
header scheduled for American Park be
tween the Washington and Baltimore
clubs, only five and a half innings being
played of the first game when Umpire
Haskell suspended further play on account
of the downpour. 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

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
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.
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.
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
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.
Pillsbury Compelled to Draw With
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. Howell beat
Marshall, and Karplnski vs. Delmar, ad
journed, was drawn. The fourth round
contested yesterday morning brought Pills
bury and Howell together. Pillsbury re
lied on a Sicilian defense, and the pieces
were freely exchanged. The game was a
draw from the start, but an attempt to
win on Pillsbury's part resulted in a lively
skirmish, from which Howell came out
with the honor of breaking Pillsbury's
clean score. A draw was agreed to after
fifty-six moves. Delmar attacked Napier
fierctdy in a Phllidor defense set up by the
former. Napier had a clearly lost game,
but manaaged to stem the tide. Adjourned
in drawn position.
Marshall defeated Karpinski prettily af
ter twenty-seven moves in a Petrol! de
fense adopted by Marshall.

cup races. The Cadillac had weather to
her liking but one day, the first, when she

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

Detroit begins a series with Washington
today. Miller and Mercer will probably be
the twirlers.
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
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
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
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. Just how well the

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
"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>
