Certain Preparations of Fruit Will Not Be Reeelved From Franee, The Treasury Department has received, through the Secretary of State, an In quiry from the United States consul at Marseilles, France, us to whether he should refuse consular certification of Invoices of fruits preserved by the application of sali cylic and benzoic acid. The matter was rtferr^ to the Secretary of Agriculture, who reports that in his opinion the im portation of fruits In this manner should not be permitted. The Treasury Depart ment, therefore, has requested that the United States consular officers In France be instructed to refuse authentication of Invoices of such goods intended for ship ment to the United States. The basis of this action is the theory that fruits pre Strved as indicated are injurious to health. Disabled Torpedo Boats.

Pittsburg 08 41 .024 Philadelphia 07 47 .587 Brooklyn 05 51 .500 St. Louis 01 53 .535 The Senators pulled themselves together yesterday at Chicago, playing good ball in both games, but were enabled to win only one, the first contest going to the White Sox by the score of 4 to 3, while the sec ond was cleverly captured in the closing innings by the Washingtons, 9 to 7. Willie Carrick was on the rubber for the Washingtons in the first game and another defeat had to be marked up against him, although his pitching was above the aver age. Carrick cannot blame his support yesterday for his downfall, as the Chicagos very cleverly bunched their hits in the sec ond and eighth Innings and made enough runs to win. Only two errors were made by the Senators, Mercer and Farrell being the unlucky players. Opposed to Carrick on the rubber was Roy Patterson and he did good work until the sixth inning, when he was chased to tall timber through the hard hitting of Dungan, Clarke and Grady. Cal lahan then relieved Patterson and the Sen ators' scoring ceased at once. That erratic southpaw. Case Patten, was on the delivering line for Washington in the second game, and after the first two in nings his pitching was of the sensational order. Patten has been unlucky with his starts of late, the opposing batters general ly getting all their hits in the first inning, but he is lucky to get good support from the fielders and, as a result, he has come to be Washington's winning twirler. In the first game neither side scored in the initial inning, but the White Sox began work in the second. A base on balls fell to the lot of McFarland and Isbell fol lowed with a single. Burke sacrificed clev erly, advancing both runners, and McFar land scored on Sullivan's single. Patterson also singled and Isbell score-d. In the third another tally was rung up for Chicago, as the result of Hartman's single, an error by Mercer, a well-placed bunt and a fielder's choice. The Senators made matters Interesting In the sixth by tying the score with three runs. After two men were out Dungan sailed into the fray with a hard double to right. Clarke chipped in with a single that sent Sammy scooting over the plate, and then Sir Michael Grady lambasted one of Patterson's curves to the left-field bleacher seats and made the circuit of the bases. This was a great rally with the bat, but It was the Senators' dying effort, the Chi cagos scoring another run in the eighth and winning out by a score of 4 to 3. In the second game the Senators started off quite chipper like, scoring three runs, but the White Sox were Just as gay and chalked up five themselves. In the second Inning Chicago scored its sixth run, and then both teams took a rest from scoring for four innings. In the seventh the Sen ators got two more, and in the eighth went to the fore with another pair of runs. The Chicagos were game to the last and tied the score again In the same inning by get ting a solitary run over the plate. But the W ashingtons were out for blobd and won out in the ninth in the most game fashion. Clarke was passed to first and Mr. Grady once more hit the ball for keps, Michael resting up at third on the hit. While Fos ter was being put out at first Sir Michael crossed the plate with the Senators' ninth run. Patten settled down to business in the Chicagos last turn at the bat and the White Sox went out without a run being placed to their credit. Wiley Piatt pitched the first part of the game, but Callahan had once more to take up the running, as the Senators commenced hitting the ball in the seventh. Attendance, 4,000. Score: Chicago.

American League magnates were In con ference at Chicago yesterday. President Ban Johnson gave out the names of eight National League ball players barred by the American League from now on for break ing faith with the magnates of the young league to play ball for the season. The men are Dlneen, Willis, Matthewson, Lefty Davis, Sheckard, Dummy Taylor, Heldrlck and Denser. "These men are all contract Jumpers," said Johnson, "and are barred from playing with any of the American League teams in the future. At our meeting today we talked over the plans for the coming year, but nothing definite was decided on. All the clubs were represented and everything moved smoothly." The meeting between McGraw and Presi dent Johnson was entirely harmonious, ac cording to the latter, and the two were closeted and had a long Interview. "We did not fall on each other's necks, but we came to a perfect understanding and everything is satisfactorily settled as far as I know now. McGraw denies all the Inter views credited to him about breaking away from the American League and causing all kinds of trouble. 1 think the trouble Is all past now." Those at the meeting were J. P. Kllfoyle, Cleveland; Connie Mack, Philadelphia; Matt Klllllea, Milwaukee; J as. Manning, Wash ington; J. J. McGraw, Baltimore; Charles Comlskey, Chicago; Ban Johnson, Boston; J. Burns, Detroit. Another question that is requiring the at tention of the club owners of the league is that of changing from 25-cent to 60-cent ball next year. It is not probable that such a change will be made, but the subject has been presented to the magnates for their thought. "We will be In St. Louis next year; that Is a certainty," said President Johnson yes terday. "What club will be there has not been definitely determined upon, but we'll be there. So far as Pittsburg is concerned we have given up Uu* Idea altogether. As to whether we will enter New York, that is too leading a question to be answered jet." BORALMiC beaten. Law?#n'> Crack Trptter Una Colors Lowered by Lord Derby. A big crowd at Charter Oak Park, Hart ford, yesterday afternQon witnessed the defeat of Thomas W. Lawson's noted trot ter Boralma by C. J. Hamlin's Lord Derby. The race between these two was one of the finest of the year, and It was only after five heats had been trotted that the Boston favorite's colors were lowered. Both horses reduced their records. The betting on the race, the free-for-all trot, was very heavy. The starters were Boralma, Lord Derby and The Monk. As much as |90,000 went into the pool box. Boralma was a tremendous favorite before the start, selling in the pools for $500, as against $175 and $200 for the other two. His backers seemed to think he could not lose. "Ed" Geers was up behind Lord Derby, James Y. Qatcomb drove Boralma and M. E. McHenry held the lines over The Monk. In the first heat Boralma led the way Into the homestretch, when Geers shook out Lord Derby, and the race to the wire was a heart breaker. Lord Derby nailed Boralma at the eighty yards distance, and passed the finish line a nose ahead, in 2.06%. The last quarter was trotted In 80% seconds. The betting then turned to $100 on Lord Derby to $70 on the field. Lord Derby made a disastrous break early In the second heat, and well away back. Boralma winning easily from The Monk in 2.07. Boralma was now made the favorite at $100 to $40 for the field. He led Lord Derby .by a length to the half, but Lord Derby made an irresistible rush on the upper turn and won the heat by an open length in 2.07%. Lord Derby was again made a fa vorite at 4 to 1. As in the second heat, he btoke at the first turn and was simply driven to save his distance. Boralma was lapped all the way In this heat by The Monk and won by a short length in 2.09. Lord Derby still remained the favorite, and keeping his feet all the way, had little dif ficulty in takinfl the fifth heat and race in 2.10. MONROE TO RACE McEACHERN.

T3ie rastest mile ridden on the local track on Hi motor machine was made last Thursday sflgbX-in 1.23 flat, and it is expected that qtfenicthls time will be cut at tonight's meet,., , The twenty-mile matcnVace between the two middle-distance draxsjpg will be probably a neck-and-neck affair, &nd as both men are clever at following pace, a most excit ing contest will be *pe>. outcome of their meeting. McEachertLfa rifling faster today than at any tine diirihtf J)is riding career, and at the present time'. would make some of the top-notchersthe championship race hustle for first honors in a match race. His pace-makers in tonight's race will be Babcock and Thompson on one ma* chine and McFeeters and Zimmerman on the other. Monroe will have Briggs and Relmer and Gaudette and Sherer. The match race between Johnny Hill and Al. Moran, which was scheduled to take place tonight, will not be run off, owing to Moran's slight illness. However, Johnny Hill will make an attempt to lower Mo ran's record for the half-mile of one min ute flat. REED BIRDS AND ORTOLAN. Plentiful Across tbe River and on the Patuxeat. Sportsmen who found disappointing dearth of reed birds and ortolan in the Eastern branch marshes have had their spirits revived by the excellent shooting afforded on tbe marshes across the river near the old race track and at Four-Mile run and further down In Oxon run and Hunting creek, as well as on the Patuxent, where the season opened yesterday. Fine bags are being made of both reed birds and ortolan across the Potomac, while re I ports from the Glebe, Mount Calvert and other Patuxent marshes are to the effect that both varieties are unusually plentiful and In excellent condition. The trouble with the Eastern branch seems to be due to the fact that the heavy rains of the spring and summer made such a high, strong stream that the marshes were considerably washed out. The con ditions, however, are getting a little bet ter, and some fair bags were secured yes terday afternoon and this morning. Ball Player Drops Dead. Larkin Herron, pitcher of the Grays base ball team of Arkansas City, Kan., dropped dead on the ball field yesterday afternoon in a game being played with the Joplln, Mo., nine. In the seventh inning Herron reached second base, and watching his op portunity, stole third. In making the base he had to exert himself to the utmost, touching the bag simultaneously with the ball by a long slide. When the side was retired Herron stepped up to the rubb;r to pitch the eighth inning. He had delivered three balls with all his force when he was seen to reel and fall to the ground. As sistance quickly reached him, but with a gasp or two he expired. Physicians said it was heart trouble as the result of a recent attack of illness, but the players Insist that he ruptured a blood vessel while mak ing his slide. Walthour Won Paced Race. The motor-paced race between "Bobby" Walthour of Atlanta, Ga., and Harry Elkes of Glens Fails, N.Y., was stopped last night at the Madison Square Garden, New York, after eleven miles had been ridden, owing to Elkes' handle bar breaking, which pre vented his finishing. The race was award ed to Walthour. Walthour broke the indoor record for the first two miles, covering the first mile in 1.86 4-5 and the two miles in 8.10 1-5. His time for 11 miles 180 irards was 18.18 4-5. Albert Champion of Trance rode an exhibition mile on a motor 1 tricycle in 1.29 2-5, breaking the world's record. Two New Records at Harlem. Two records were broken at the Harlem race track near Chicago yesterday, one of them the world's mark for a mile and seventy yards, by Jlminez, in 1.42 8-5. Nel lie Waddell covered four furlongs In the Sapling stakes in 47 1-5, beating the former track record of 47%. The world's record for the first distance, 1-43V4, was made on the Harlem track in July, 1894, by Lillian Lee, who carried ninety-five pounds. JVmlnez, with 101 pounds up, is the fastest race run on a cir cular track In this country. McGlnnlty's Bis Offer. The St. Louis club is negotiating with Pitcher McGinnlty, who was expelled for rowdyism and then reinstated by the Amer ican League. Manager Donovan has made McGinnlty a cash offer of $2,000 telmply to play the rest of the season with his team. As he could only be used, at the utmost, ten times, McGinnlty woujd practically be paid $200 a game for his services. Dono van is in dire straits for pitchers, and is willing to incur any expense to secure the famous iron man. Hanlon has also made McGinnlty a proposition to come back to the Brooklyn club, the team he won the championship for last year, but Donovan's ofTer was much the better. In fact $200 a game is the biggest pay in the history of base ball. Base Ball Notes. The Senators play in Chicago again to day. Making an even break yesterday was doing pretty well. The Senators' trip so far has been the best of the eastern teams?five victories and five defeats. Carrlck will be getting superstitious if his hard luck continues. His pitching has been exceptionally clever, but one error generally proves disastrous back of hhn. Three runs after two were out In the first game must have stirred things up a little, and no doubt Michael Angelo felt ex ceedingly comfortable over his great drive to the bleachers. Waldron wasn't feeling very well yester day and asked to be excused, Mercer tak ing his place. But "Wally" was called in to relieve Carrlck In the ninth while at the hat, and the ex-Brewer responded with a timely single. AtWetIcs crowded into the first division yesterday, and another vie tory or two will push them into third place. Baltimore and Detroit being the sufferers through the advance. Eugene DeMontreville won Boston's game yesterday over St. Louis with a timely home-run drive in the ninth inning after two were out. As a "pinch" hitter Gene is strictly all right. Manager Donovan of the St. Louis team gave ex-Senator Magee a trial yesterday against Boston. Magee did well for seven innings not a run being made olT his de livery, but he was hit hard in the eighth, and Powell relieved him. A peculiar play came up in the Brroklyn Cincinnati game yesterday. A wild pitch bounded Into the grand stand, and, striking one of the seats, bounded out again in time for Farrell get the ball and retire Stein feldt at the plate, thereby saving the game. Shortstop Magoon of the Cinclnnatls had a wonderful record yesterday, putting out ten men and assisting five times. This is almost the record for a short stop. Two errors marked his day's work. Virgil Garvin says that If he could hit the ball as far as he steps away from the plate when at bat he would be a wonder. Virgil certainly has a long step. Latest averages have Lajoie leading the American League in batting with .441. FYeeman is second and Seybold third. In the National Doheny Is first with .395. Most of the home runs scored by Sam Crawford this season have been on high flies that have gone so far that Sam usual ly was turning second base before the ball finally landed. Few of them have been on line drives between fields. The Athletics continued on their winning streak yesterday and put themselves within reaching distance of third place by admin istering a double defeat to Detroit, and if they can win today they will have third position. Charlie Zlmmer will be of little or no use to the Pirates for the remainder of the sea son. The Injury inflicted on aim by Jesse Burkett In St. Louis a month or more ago refuses to heal properly, and Zimmer can work only with the greatest difficulty. A good base runner usually is at the head of the list of base purloiners. Many chances have to be taken in trying for an addition al base, and the runner Is frequently caught, when he usually has the anathemas of the home crowd heaped upon him, or he is called a wonderful base runner If he suc ceeds In the attempt. Texas Jack McAllister Is now cavorting behind the bat for Detroit. This useful man with the excelsior shavings head is one of the best all-round players in the business, so far as fielding goes, for he can pltdh, catch or cover any place, infield or out. Manager McPhee ran Into a bit of news not yet confirmed at New York yesterday. It Is claimed that the Cincinnati club has landed George Winters, the youngster wtiose pitching has done so much to keep the Boston Americans near the top. He is one of the twirling finds of the year, and has worn better than Matthewson. National League players are of the opin ion that as soon as the Beason In the Amer ican League closes Joe McGinnity of the Baltlmores will Join the Brooklyns and as sist them In fighting their last few battles of the year. According to an agreement entered into between the magnates of the National League the Brooklyn club Is pro hibited from playing McGinnity?tout such agreements usually are made only to be broken. Jack Farrell, who Is now covering second base for Manning's Senators in such a re markable manner, is one of the best-na tured players that ever put on a ball shoe. He has a smiling face, and, regardless of the kind of game he is playing, good or bad, he never loses his pleasant smile and happy disposition. He is always cheering and en couraging those around him. He is a prime favorite of Manning's, and the Senators' manager if proud of the fact that he was the one who picked Farrell as the coming second baseman.?Milwaukee Evening Wis consin. President Ban Johnson was "not In" to Shortstop Shugart yesterday. Shugart called at the oflUce of the president of the league yesterday morning and asked for an audience, but word was sent back that the audience could not be granted. "I can't see why President Johnson won't at least hear my side of the story," was Shugart's com plaint. "All I wanted was to get his ideas on the trouble and why he picked me out as a mark. He stated at the time of the trouble that he regarded McGinnity's of fense as worse than mine. He has rein stated McGinnity after the latter called on htan. I shall report this to Comiskey and Griffith and appeal to the board of directors immediately. Comiskey Is president of the board, but, of course, will oe barred from sitting with It because I am on his club. The other members are Mat KUlilea, Jimmy Manning and Sidney Frank, president of the Baltimore club."?Chicago Chronicle. Oa* Psist o< View. [ From the Detroit Wee Press.

A young Baltimore couple was married here yesterday evening, after considerable difficulty, the contracting parties being Mr. Thomas T. Pattison and Miss Edith I. Barnes.
