M. Willlan. To the Editor of The Evening Star: Lender the heading, "Glimpses Back ward," published In The Star of September 7, was a pen picture of M. Willlan, so grossly exaggerated and flagrantly untrue that even at this late day I ask the priv ilege of refreshing the memory of Its au thor and giving to the public the real facts. M. Willlan was truly a Hungarian, but never at any time a "hungry, thin and half starved" one. He began business in a small way on Market space, and later moved to 6u7 Pennsylvania avenue, where he en larged It and conducted In connection there with the first ladles' tailoring establish ment In Washington. His name stands at the top of the list of Washington's honor able and prosperous merchants. His am bition, his genius and his great good heart were well balanced, and while he prospered and amassed a fortune, not one duty to his family, his employes or humanity in gen eral was neglected. It Is an Insult to the Common sense of M. Willlan to picture him bedecked with gems and driving In gaudy equipages. He lived In absolute comfort, drove a pair of well-groomed horses, dress ed In good taate and never for a moment forgot that he was a man and a merchant. This defense of one across the seas Is sub mitted by one who for years was his em ploye and friend. E. A. E. Monkeying With Buss Saw. Cecil Galth?r of Rockville, Md., walked into the Georgetown University Hospital this morning and announced that he had "Just been monkeying with the buzz saw."

The local players Immediately scattered for their homes, while the Bostons put up at the Riggs House. When seen this morning, Manager Manning was feeling quite elated over the showing the Senators had made on the trip, but he had no news to give. "I expected to pick up one or more new players on the western trip, but all my deals fell through," said Mr. Manning. "We ran into several rains, which knocked down our receipts considerably, but as It didn't Interfere with my club's playing I have no kick coming. Our eight victories out of the fourteen games played, were of tbe clean-coat*variety, and with a little luck we would have won three more. "I have been in correspondence with Catcher Luskey of the New England League for some time past, and had quite a talk with him this morning. He Impressed me favorably and he will be In uniform this afternoon. I may put him In the outfield this afternoon, but I would like to have him get acquainted with the other members of the team before trying him out. Lus key's work this season has been exception ally good In the minor league, and as he Is a Washington boy I hope he will be able to play up to the American League stand ard." Tim Murnane. the veteran newspaper writer of the Boston Globe, Is with the Bostons and believes there is yet a fine chance for a splendid finish between the two leading clubs. Secretary Gavin of the Beaneaters told a Star reporter this morn ing that his club was In the best of shape, but that the good stickers had lost their batting eyes for the time being. Their fielding is as good as ever, but a timely hit !n almost all the game* at Chicago would have materially changed matters In regards to the victor. Last Sunday's crowd at Chicago was a record breaker and Mr. Gavin said that he witnessed almost as big a crowd going away from the grounds unable to gain admission as was inside the fences. In the game this afternoon between the Senators and Bostons Cyrus Young will probably be on the rubber for the visitors, while Mercer may hand them up for the home team. The local followers of the Sen ators are quite elated over the team's splendid showing on the trip, which was better than any other eastern club, and the chances are mat a hearty welcome will be given the Washingtons when they go on the field this afternoon. An Even Break a* Cleveland. Cleveland and Philadelphia played a dou ble header yesterday in the former city, the Spiders winning the fins* game by the shut-out score of 7 to 0, while the second went to the Quakers, 4 to 1. Moore's good pitching was responsible for Cleve land's victory, while Fraser did more than hi3 share In pushing the Athletics to the fore in the second. Catcher Bob Wood had his finger split and will probably be out of the game for the nest of the sea son. Attendance, 2.300. Score: FIRST GAME. Phll'd'phJa. r.h.o.a.e.

The Washington golfers, Dr. L. L. Har ban and H. R. Johnstone, who played them selves Into the qualifying round of the big tournament at Atlantic City Monday were put out of the running yesterday, both by one point. A. G. Lockwood, the crack player of Alston, Mass., who has champion ship aspirations, was the doctor's oppo nent, and the round was only finished In favor of the eastern men on the last hole by one stroke. Another man from Massa chusetts, J. G. Thorpe of Oakley, turned the trick on Mr. Johnstone, and again the fatal one stroke did the business. Sixteen players are now left of the thirty two championship eligibles who earned their way into the match-play class yester day. The first match-play round yesterday de veloped some surprises, a? is usually the case. One of the greatest of these was the narrow escape of former Chaippion Douglas from defeat. He met a player almost unknown to eastern golfers?George Ormlston of Pittsburg. The latter held Douglass even at the end of the morning round, and the gallery followed the two men in the afternoon, on the watch for a sensational finish. Douglas* weak point In putting was very much in evidence, ana nis playing was far from being good golf. Both men took 88 for the oourse in the morning round. OrmLston led all the w^y until the finish. When Douglas tied the game on the home green. In the afternoon expectations that the former champion would return to his usual brilliancy were not fulfilled. Honors were still even at the twenty-seventh hole. Douglas then played two holes miserably, getting into the bunker, but by a grand ex hibition of pluck he pulled himself out of almost sure defeat and led by one hole on next to the last green. The last was halved, and Douglas Just saved himself for another chance by the slim margin of one hole. . Champion Travis met J. R. Porter fr?"1 Pittsburg, another new man to the big golfing world At the end of the morning round Travis led by five. Porter developed more strength in the afternoon and pre vented his strong opponent from securing a heavy lead, and Travis was satisfied with a win of five up and three to play. The champion started in to play his game in form fully equal to that displayed yester day and make the morning round in 77 strokes, but one more than his record breaking figures of yesterday. He halved the first two holes and won the third, making a dead approach with his third. The fourth and fifth were halved, and the sixth, a short hole, fell to him in three. Porter got the next two, taking the long seventh In five, against his opponent's six. and the eighth in three, against four. Travis captured the ninth, being one up at the turn. On the home Journey the greater ac curacy of the champion was clearly appar ent, and his opponent needed four strokes more than Travis' 87. The latter was then five up. In the afternoon it looked as though the Plttsburger would make things lively, as in the first seven holes he halved five, lost one, and won one. He, however, could not overcome the big lead, and was eventually defeated, by five up and three to play. BROKEN RECORDS EXPECTED. The Pierce-McEnchern Twenty-Mile Race. The twenty-mile motor-paced race be tween Archie McEachern and Burns Pierce, both of Canada, will take place tomorrow night at 8:15, and the contest Is expected to be one of the most fiercely fought bat tles of the season at the Coliseum track. Both men are in fine condition for the race, and fast time will undoubtedly be a feature of the contest. It is the first meet ing in this city of these two middle dis tance riders, and the outcome will be watched with interest. Both men claim the championship for middle distance events of Canada, and tomorrow night will decide who is the better rider. In addition to the match race between McEachern and Pierce, there will be motor races, which have always proved to be the most exciting and thrilling races ever pre sented at the Coliseum. The track is con sidered by all of the crack riders to be the fastest in the country, and being a fclx lap track, the dangers of accidents are less than if it were an eight or ten-lap track. The races will be between four pow erful four-horse-power motors, and will be run off in two heats of two miles each. The final will be for three miles, and in each of the events record-breaking time is ex pected. , . The amateurs will be given a chance to ?show their speed in a mile open, which has been added to the list of events, and the race will probably be a case of sprint from start to finish in order to determine who is the fastest man among the local ama teurs. The riders and pacing outfits for Pierce and McEachern will arrive in this city tomorrow morning, and a trial spin will be made on the local boards shortly after their arrival, with another spin about 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. DORICL.ES WINS ST. LEGER STAKES. Protest Made That He Bumped, bnt Wan Overruled. LONDON, September 11.?Dorlcles won the St. Leger stakes at Doncaster today. Objection was made to Dorlcles being de clared the winner of the St. Leger. The betting previous to the start was 10 to 1 against Dorlcles, 11 to 10 against Vol odyovskl and 0 to 1 against Revenue. Revenue led until going up the hill, when Cynical drew to the front and led to the stretch, Revenue again going to the front there. Dorlcles and Volodyovskl, the latter ridden by Lester Relff. then came up fast and passed Revenue. Dorlcles winning by a length. Three lengths separated Volody ovskl and Revenue, second and third horses respectively. An objection was made to Dorlcles win ning, on the ground of bumping, but it was overruled. The Soldier Team Won. The team from the Washington barracks hospital corps defeated the strong Maroons at American League Park yesterday in a close and exciting game by 7 to 0. This is the second defeat of the season for the Maroons, but they were defeated only after a hard struggle. Both teams played an ex cellent game, full of life and sensational plays, and not marred with numerous er rors, the soldiers making but one and the Maroons two. Carr pitched an excellent game for the soldiers, but five hits being made by the Maroons. Mizell, who caught for the victors, threw out four players in the attempt to steal bases. Lorrimer, Doyle, Wilson and Turner also played well for the soldiers. Hook played a great game at third for the Maroons, while Clarke and Walker were close behind him for first honors. Boston After Waldron. A special from Boston says that the directors of the Boston National League team will make every possible effort to se cure one of the best outfields available for next season, and will not stint money in that direction. They are completely dis gusted with the work of the outfield of this year, and they consider their weakness in that department as responsible for the low standing of the team. Barrett and Holmes of Detroit and Wal dron of Washington are men who are under consideration. It is known that President Brush of Cincinnati has been requested to give his consent to the club to open nego tiations with Barrett, and that player will be secured if a munificent salary will be any inducement. Arrangements have been made by which Joe Rickert, formerly a Pittsburg farm hand, will Join Boston at the close of the Eastern League season, September 28. Thelre has been talk about a change in the management of the team, and Manager Se lee says he will find out where he stands before the end of the week. Canadians Playing Better Cricket. The Canadians sprang something of a surprise on the Philadelphia cricketers at Ottawa yesterday when they went in for the rest of the first innings, the over-night score being 77 for 8 wickets. Chambers was caught and bowled by Clark and For ester and McGiverin became partners. The pair added 51 runs to the total before they were separated. The total was 128 runs, or 40 behind the Philadelphians. When the Philadelphians went In Graves put up 56 before Gillespie bowled him. Clark got 28 in good style and the Innings closed with a lead of 196 on the Canadians. The Canadians then went in and had put on 42 for three wickets when time was called. Base Ball Game Postponed. CLEVELAND, September 11.?The base ball game scheduled for today between Cleveland and Detroit will not be played on account of the G. A. R. parade. Two games will be played tomorrow afternoon if the weather permits. Broke 05 Out of lOO. Harvey McMurchy of Syracuse, N. Y., was the victor in the New Utrecht Gun Club handicap at Interstate Park, Long j Island, yesterday. He broke 95 out of a pos sible 100 and secured the lion's share of the subscriDtlon. This event was the principal one of the series which made up the first day's match-. I es of the forty-third annual tournament of the New York State Association for the Protection of Fish and Game, the whole being under the auspices of the New Utrecht Gun Club. Thirty-five experts from all over the country engaged in the main event, which was at 100 targets. 'C. C. Nauman of San Francisco was second, with 90, and PL Stearns of RiOAmorf#, Va., third, with 87, while Hood, 8^ Tattman, 86; Fannin*, 88; Ellison, 85, and J^roy and Fulford, 84 each, followed In order and divided the money. Brewer Breaks Swimming Record. SAN DIEGO, 'Cal.,i!September 11.?In the one-mile championship swimming race be tween Howard *F. Brewer of San Francisco and Wilbur E^Kylfc of this city Brewer won in 28 mini&es 8114-5 seconds, breaking the American Anateur record of 28.52 2-5, which was made by Otto Wahale at the pan-American $fpos^tjon on July 9. Easy Victory fbr Census Team. The Census Office team strengthened Its hold on first jftace $festerday by defeating the Government Pricing Office nine. The tabulators' viotory was an easy one, as they simply scored at will, and after five Innings, when darkness put an end to the game, they had piled up eleven runs to their opponents' one. Brown, who was the serv ing end of the battery for the printers, was batted for ten safeties, and when the ball was driven into the printers' hands they would most invariably make a mess of it. On the other hand, Fulcher, who pitched for the tabulators, was invincible, allowing but two hits, and he also received excel lent support, the team only having one error charged against them. Grand Clnmlt Trotting. The feature of yesterday's races at Syra cuse was the defeat of Frank Jones' great four-year-old mare Eleata in the $5,000 purse for 2.24 class trotters. While the track is very fast, It is also very hard, and -the Dexter Prince filly did not like the foot ing, and in the stcond and third heats made breaks, while in the next three heats she was easily beaten. The third and fourth heats furnished very, close finishes between Country Jav and Neva Simmons, but the big mare outlasted the Kentucky gelding and won. The Hero won the nec essary heat in the unfinished 2.14 pace. Only one of the amateur events was de cided, as the horses failed to appear for the second, which was declared off. In the race for the 2.16 class trotters three Speed way and matinee horses, representing as many states, contested for silver cups. Mr. C. Q. K. Billings' mare Louise Jefferson was a big favorite for the race, but she was beaten in both heats by Ralnforth. driven by his owner, Mr. C. R. Meyers of Colum bus. Ohio. The 2.18 pace was a hard race of seven heats, and finally resulted in a victory for the local mare Birchbud, The Abbot and Cresceu* Matched. A proposition for a match race between the trotters Cresceus and The Abbot, at Readville, Mass., for a purse of $20,000, winner to take all, was yesterday tele graphed to Ed. Geers, trainer and driver of The Abbot, now at Syracuse. C. W. Jewett, secretary of the Readville track, met George Ketchurh, owner of Cres ceus, in New York yesterday and offered this purse for a meeting of those two great trotters. Mr. Ketchum readily assented, and the terms of the proposed match were wired to Mr. Geers, who has full power from John J. Scannell, the owner of The Abbot, to act. Mr. Geers yesterday afternoon wired the managers of the Readville track that he accepted the offer to race for the $20,000, and the great contest will come off Sep tember 19. Bane Ball Notes. Luskey is In good shape at last and will be in today's game. The weather mart' heard that Manning was coming frdme last night and down .. . :rT n came the rain. Boston doesnVt wajirt much in Waldron, Barrett and Holmes.' All these players will have to break" contracts to be with the Beaneaters next seaj&n. Pitcher TowtiAend/ who Is slated for Washington next season, got his "bumps" yesterday froirt* Pittsburg. But the way the Pirates are plajrtng Just now they are likely to take any pitcher's measure. The game at Chester yesterday between the Athletics of thaf place and the Sena tors resulted in favor of our representa tives, 0 to 0. Grady, Clingman and Gear did the best batting. It seems to be all tover but the shouting now as regards the National League cham pionship. Pittsburg finishes at home and should continue the winning stride to the end. In the American League Chicago has a great big start, but there is no telling what sort of reception the White Sox will get on the closing trip east. With Griffith, Calla han, Patterson and Katoll in good shape Chicago's chances of winning out are of the very best. Earl Moore struck out Lajoie and Sey bold in succession in the first inning yester day at Cleveland after Davis had singled over second. Base ball has a number of urgent needs. Close to the top In the list that might be enumerated is the need of more earnest work on the part of players during the game. Certain features of the "back lot" games could be copied by the professionals with profit. The Hartford base ball club refused to play yesterday afternoon and will forfeit the game scheduled for today to the Wor cester team. It is claimed by the players that their salaries have not been paid since August 15. This action of the players will probably end the Eastern League base ball season In Hartford, as the franchise will be lost. A veteran player of the National League expresses himself as completely disgusted with the foul strike rule. "If they wanted to shorten the game," he said, "why don't they back up their umpires? And if they wanted to help the pitcher, why didn't they move him forward a few feet. Under the present rules a catcher can muff a foul and still it counts as a penalty against the bats man. That does not look like base ball to me." George Davis said yesterday that before the team made its next trip west, which will be In about two weeks. New York would have some new players, and that they would be as formidable a set as ever played on a diamond. He would divulge no names, but said that they are all known to base ball enthusiasts. The veteran A. C. Anson says: "The great railway lines which parallel each other run In healthy competition and live. To my mind there is every reason why the same conditions can exist in base ball. I believe that nearly every National League city will support two teams when the peo ple have once become educated to it. I am certain that Philadelphia, New York, Chi cago and Boston can, and I rather think that the same Is true of St. Louis and Pittsburg." Connie Mack, the manager of the Phil adelphia American League club, has not been losing any time in the grab act for players. It is learned on good authority that he has secured Burkett, Flick and Hartzell for his outfield, and Dugglesby and White for his pitchers. Dave Fultz will be used as utility man and none better can be found. His infield will be the same as this season's, with a possibility that Ely may be elsewhere. Ely signed with Mack for the balance of this season only, but it is quite certain that Mack will make every inducement to retain "Bones" Ely.? Milwaukee Evening Wisconsin. Center Fielder Barrett of the Detroit team has taken qu^te a slump in his hat ting. He lets strike after strike go over the plate without attempting to hit the ball. In the redent series with the Wash ington team h? secured but two hits, both being of the sqratc^. order. His lnfielding is as fine as ever ahd the young man ft surely the best ana fastest fielder In the American League. His batting eye will re turn.?Detroit News,..

Wash ington. with Hanlon and Manning fighting with their all-star stunters, will be the seat of battle of the tsro leagues.?Chicago Chronicle. The race for the American League pen nant is developing Into a very pretty con test, but It is a singular thing that only three clubs have shown any increase in percentage over a week ago, and neither of the leaders is among them. These are the Athletics, Detroit and Milwaukee. Chicago, despite the fact that It has played at home, has had Its lead materially lessened, and the same Is true of Boston, whose showing of late has bee* disappointing. Still, with three weeks of the championship remain ing, there Is reason to believe that there will be several changes In their present po sitions, so closely bunched are the clubs.?

"There Is the coming second baseman of the country. I have seen them all, and this young fellow comes nearer to filling Mc Phee's shoes than any man I have seen. Though the position Is still new to him, he is covering more ground than any man in this league, not even barring Lajole. On double plays he hasn't an equal. He Is quick as a flash and a strong thrower, and he doesn't have to wind up his arm to send the ball to first. Farrell cannot be appre ciated until you see him play ten or twelve games. He Is a wonder, and It was a lucky thing for Manning when he shifted him Into that position.?Interview with Mike Grady In Cleveland Leader. TO FACILITATE TRADE. Proposed EstabHnhment of a Chtno Jnpanese Bank. The State Department has received from United States Consul Lyons at Hlogo, Japan, under date of August 1, a report concerning a resolution recently passed by leading Japanese business men, which are significant as showing a very friendly feel ing In Japan toward China. It 1s stated that at a meeting of the Japanese Foreign Trade Association, which Is composed of leading Japanese merchants of Kobe and Osaka, a resolution was passed that the Japanese government be memorial ized to set apart a portion of its Chinese In demnity fund for the purpose of facilitating commercial transactions between Japan and China. It was also advised that a bank for Chinese and Japanese merchants be cre ated so that the peoples of the two coun tries might be brought into closer touch. The resolution stated that of the gross capital of $14,940,000 the government should be petitioned to lend at least $4,980,000 at an Interest of 2 per cent, out of the indemnity to be obtained from China, and that the bank thus created should be entitled to Is sue within a certain proper limit gold and silver convertible notes. The bank, It was urged, should also be made to exploit the resources of the Interior of China. The or ganization of the establishment should be created. It was stated, under a special patent by the government, and should be of a Joint stock formation, with the capital subscribed by the peoples of the two coun tries. TO LIST NEW YORK "REDS." Police Commissioner Murphy Ordera a Census to Be Taken. Police Commissioner Murphy of New York yesterday Issued a general order to all the commanding officers In the police department directing them to take a cen sus of all anarchists living in their dis tricts, and to forward the list to head quarters, where the detective department Is to conduct a general surveillance upon the anarchists of the city.

J.,was visited yes terday by six secret service men at the meeting hall In that city of the band of anarchists known as the "Right of Exlst tence" group. He was subjected to a close examination, but so far as could be learned nothing connecting the Paterson anarch ists with the attack on President McKln ley was elicited.

There has been a decline of 13 points in Ohio, 8 in Indiana. 2 In Il linois. Iowa and Texas and 3 In Nebraska. In Kansas and Missouri the local gains and losses about counterbalance each other and in these states the condition of the crop as a whole Is represented by the same figures as on August 1.

LOOKING VP MAGGIO'S RECORD. Man Who Predicted the Shooting of President McKlnley. A dispatch from Kansas City, Mo., last night says: An Investigation of the local record of Antonio Magglo, the Italian who is said to have predicted the death of President McKlnley and who Is now under arrest In New Mexico, reveals the fact that he was the leader of a considerable band of anarchists In Kansas City two years ago. These men held regular meetings in the rear of & barber shop kept by Magglo, mid it Is stated that the "removal" of the President of the United States was the principal subject of discussion. Magglo and his associates, all of whom were Italians, were disciples of Emma Goldman, for whom Magglo had a sort of veneration. It was from her, it is said, that Maggio irrbibed his anarchistic ideas. One of Maggio's associates, still In the city. Is known to the police, but has not been ar rested. Edward Andrews, manager of the An drews Opera Company, with which Antonio Maggio was formerly engaged as cornetist, is in this city. "Several members of our company," said Mr. Andrews today, "were in the habit of discussing economic and social questions, and Tony cut in with his anarchistic doc trines. Maggio said no man had a right to rule another, and one day said the blood of every soldier killed in the Philip pines was on President McKinley's hands, and the only way the common people could assert their rights was by assassination. Early last February he told me distinctly to watch for an important event before October. He assured us that President McKinley would be killed before that month came." Maggio left the company at Silver City, N. M., Mr. Andrews said, because his sym pathies were enlisted with an anarchist prisoner there. SILVER CITY, N. Mex.. September 10.? Antonio Maggio, the alleged anarchist who was arrested yesterday at Santa Rita on suspicion of being implicated in the at tempted assassination of President McKin ley, was placed In jail here today to await Instructions from Washington. No report ers have been allowed to see the prisoner, and the officers all refuse to talk about the case. ? ? ? CZOLGOSZ NOT A MEMBER. The K. G. E. Order Not an Anarchistic Organisation. Prom the Evening Times, Union City, Ind., Sep tember 9, 1901. Statement of the supreme chief of the Knights of the Golden Eagle: In view of the faot that Czolgosz, the President's cowardly assailant, wore a K. G. E. pin, some of the dally papers are ?printing glowing statements concerning the Knights of the Golden Eagle as being an anarchist association. A more damnable fabrication was never uttered, and It is only fair to demand a retraction and a ces sation of any and all such statements. The Knights of the Golden Eagle Is very similar In character to the Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias and Red Men, and teaches charity, fidelity, honor, courtesy, temperance and hospitality. No more loyal, patriotic or fraternal or ganization exists in America today, and these cheap, amateurish reporters and de tectives who are seeking notoriety at the expense of this organization, whose char acter and standing abhors anarchy and so cialism In every form, are assuming a dan gerous position. The fiendish assault upon our chief ex ecutive could not possibly have been more regretted, caused more sorrow or witnessed more profuse expressions of sympathy in any fraternal organization than it prompt ed among the American citizens who deem H an honor to home and their country to hold a membership In the Knights of the Golden Eagle. S. M. HARLAN. Supreme Chief. Panoramic View of Washington. Mr. John L. Trout, after a year and a half of the most painstaking care, has pro duced & panoramic picture of Washington In watercolor that will rank as one of the most extraordinary works of its kind. The picture is four feet long by two feet wide. At first glance the picture looks like the usual impressionistic panorama of Wash ington, but on close inspection it will be discovered that every publlo building is re produced in detail. Every building of any importance in every square of the entire city is represented so true to the original as to be instantly reoognlzed. Mr. Trout has painted a picture that combines much artistic merit with a poet ical value almost inestimable, and nothing of a similar nature In existence can be compared favorably with It. The nearest approach to the work done by Mr. Trout was the scenlo panorama of Paris made for the exposition of"1886. Malaria Makes Impure Blood. Oim'1 Tsstelms GhUl Tmle cms Malaria.
