The double-header played at American
league Park yesterday between the Wash
ington and Milwaukee clubs failed to draw
many persons. A drizzling rain prevailed
part of the afternoon, and the muddy
grounds combined to handicap the players
in their fielding. The first game was won
by the Brewers by the score of 0 to 2,
while .the second was captured by 'he
Senators, 5 to 3.
Wyatt Lee was on the rubber at the
start-off of the first game, but he is not a
rainy-day twirler, and after the Milwau
kees had hammered his delivery pretty
regularly for five innings Lee went to the
bench and Gear took up the work. The
latter pitched good ball, and his support
was of the best, not a run being scored in
the four innings in which Gear did the
pitching. Virgil Garvin handed them up
for the Brewers, and the elongated tvirler
had one of his good days, his drops and
curves being almost a complete puzzle to
the batting Senators. Five safe drives
were all that could be secured off Garvin's
delivery, and of this number Cllngman got
two. Before Lee left the game he got in a
beautiful drive off Garvin for three bases,
the ball going to the fence in right field.
In sliding into third Lee turned his ankle
slightly, and this may have handicapped
him in his pitching thereafter.
The Brewers presented two new men in
yesterday's games. Jones in left field and
Bone at short. Of the two, Jones looks the
better. He covered his position in fine
style, and in the first game robbed Farrell
of a three-bagger, getting the ball after a
hard run as it was sailing on a line toward
the center-field fence. Bone looks best at
the bat. and as he was playing short for
the first time with Milwaukee, he may Im
prove hereafter. Donahue began catching
for the Brewers, but a foul tip almost tore
a nail off his index finger, and he had to
retire. Maloney coming in from center and
Hallman going into right. The latter had
his batting eye with him, as he hammered
out two doubles and a single.
Second Game.
In the second game Mercer and Hustings
were the opposing twlrlers, and the local
boy had the best of the argument at all
points of the route. The Brewers scoured
eight safe drives off Mercer, but the hits
were skillfully scattered, and but for an un
fortunate throw by Clarke the visitors
would have been shut out. This play came
up in the sixth inning, and is worthy of
description on account of its unique fea
tures. Maloney had reached first on a sin
gle, but Anderson forced him at second on
a hit to Farrell. Gilbert then hit a little
bounder right in front of the plate ar d Im
mediately sprinted for first. Captain Clarke
gathered up the ball nicely, but >n throwing
to Grady, the damp ball slipped from his
hand and struck Gilbert a glancing blow
on top of the head. The ball was thrown
with such force that it went on a bound
from Gilbert's head clear into the bleachers
in right field. The blow staggered the run
ner for a fraction of a second, but he kept
his feet, and with Anderson cro-53?d the
plate as a result of the bad throw.
Hustings apparently found the wet ball a
handicap to his delivery*, and bad to de
pend upon a speedy, straight ball for lils
efficiency. This sort of delivery seemed to
please Dungan, Grady and Mercer mightily,
as the first-named placed a double and two
singles to his credit, the second a home
run and a single, while the third worked in
two timely singles. Back of Hustings ^he
fielding of the Brewers was a repetition of
what the Senators did in the first, four
misplavs marring their work, the majority
of which were costly.
The Senators behind Mercer fielded with
a vim and accuracy that was enjoyable to
look at, Clarke's error, as told above, be
ing the only misplay In the game. Little
Jack Farrell, at second, "coppered" ten
chances in clever style, while Billy Cllng
man and Coughlin handled several hard
chances in their usual reliable manner.
The ex-Cleveland player, Billy Hart, um
pired his first games in Washington, end
with the exception of losing two beautiful
drives from Grady and Dungan's bats,
which he called foul, his work was above
criticism. Hart admitted after the game
that he lost the hits, but he said from his
position back of the pitcher the drives Ap
peared to go on foul territory. Grady went
out on his next try, but Dungan would not
be denied, and slammed the ball for a safe
one over second. Score:

Dolly Dillon Won the First Heat of
the f 10,000 Trot.
Despite a light rain, there were fourteen
good heats at the breeders' meeting at
Readville, Mass., yesterday, while the
horse show feature of the present race
week was wound up. The track grew very
heavy as the day wore on, and the remain
der of the card was called off at 3 o'clock.
It was announced at the same time that the
Cresceus-The Abbot race was off, but that
The Abbot would try for the track trot
ting record.
The 2.10 pace, which came over from
Tuesday, proved easy for Louise G.. al
though the mare dropped the first heat.
The judges had trouble with one or two
drivers, and Trout was put up in Gillie's
place behind George Wilton In the 2.17
pace. The change did no good, for Lady
Bayard won in straight heats.
There was more trouble In the 2.23 trot.
Turner being displaced by Geers oehlnd
Ben Hal. This race was unfinished. The
Futurity was easy for Admiral Dewey, who
won by many yards in each heat.
One heat was trotted in the big $10,000
2.10 trot, which Dolly Dillon won with ease.
In the horse show the Gerkendale stables
carried off many ribbons, including one of
the championships, while the Jordan horses
were also quite successful.
Jimmy Michael Defeat* Southern
C'hamplan in Hollow Style.
In the language of the cycle track, "Jim
my" Michael, the little Welsh cyclist, "rode
rings around" Robert Walthour, the south
ern cycling champion. In their match race
of fifteen miles, paced by single motors, in
the Madison Square Garden, New York,
last night. Michael led from the start, and
won by exactly four and a half laps of the
ten-lap track, or almost half a mile. This
is a lap more than Michael's margin of vic
tory over Harry Elkes on the same track
Monday evening, and conclusively demon
strates the little Welsh rider's superiority
in middle-distance, motor-paced racing on
indoor tracks, at least. His easy victory
last night was unquestionably due to clever
and fast riding, as no accidents of any
kind occurred, and the accomplished man
ner In which he followed the pace set for
him by Albert Champion, the French chauf
feur, won for him round after round of r.p
plause. Credit is due to Champion, too, for
the excellent judgment with which he set
the pace.
Walthour, on the other hand, was plainly
not at home on the ateep Indoor track, and
did not seem to be riding his best. He rode
higher up from his pace and further behind
. It than Michael did with his, and seemed
afraid to get in close, as Michael, thanks to
his diminutive size, was able to do.
Big List of Starters In the Tuxedo
Golf Cluh's Tourney.
The annual invitation tournament of the
Tuxedo Golf Club began at Tuxedo Park,
N. Y., yesterday with a qualifying round
at 36 holes, medal play. Among the start
ers were two former amateur champions,
Findlay S. Douglas and C. B. MacDonald,
who played together.
Over fifty entries were carded for the
preliminary round, and there were very
few absentees. A light, drizzling rain was
falling as the players started off, but later
on the conditions improved. Since the last
tournament was held at Tuxedo, a year
ago. the course has been lengthened 555
yards, so that the entire playing length of
the links now Is 5,2.~>5 yards.
Findlay S. Douglas, Nassau, made the
best score In the first half of the 3l5-hole
medal play round, turning In a card of
75. C. B. MacDonald, Meadow Brook,
came next, with 78. Devereaux Emmett,
Garden City, had 81, and W. C. Carnegie,
Allegheny Country Club, Pittsburg, fol
lowed with 82.
The best sixteen scores yesterday quali
fied for match play for the principal prize
?the President's cup. The second sixteen
qualified to play on for the governor's cup
and the remaining half dozen will have a
contest for the consolation cup.
As a mark of respect to the memory of
the late President there will be no playing
on the Tuxedo links today, the semi-final
and final rounds for all the prizes being
deferred until Saturday. In addition to the
semi-final and final rounds for the princi
pal prizes there will be a 36-hole medal
play handicap on Saturday, the prize for
which Is the Tuxedo cup, the entries for
which will close Friday night.
Great Filly Stakes Awarded to Whit
ney's Blue Girl.
The stewards of the Coney Island Jockey
Club yesterday sustained the protest of
Jere Dunn against the filly Leonora Loring
in the Great Filly stakes and disqualified
I the filly.
Much Interest was taken at the Graves
I end track yesterday when the decision of
the stewards became known. The deci
sion gives the rich stake of 124,000 to Wil
liam C. Whltnex, whose filly. Blue Girl,
was beaten a short head after a questiona
ble ride by Shaw, for which he was sus
pended three racing days. The matter
must now be submitted to the stewards of
the jockey club for their approval.
Jere Dunn protested Leonora Loring on
the ground of irregularity in entering the
colt. She was nominated for the Great
Filly stakes by Maj. B. G. Thomas. She is
said to be owned jointly by L. M. Myers
and John Daly, but Myers appeared as the
sole owner, and, under the rule, the names
, of both owners should have appeared.
Base Ball Nates.
Cleveland opens up a series With Wash

Mr. Case Patten will probably do the

Clingman evidently intends to retire from
base ball in good form, the way he has
been fielding all season and hitting of late.
Big John Anderson comes very near to

The Senators still have a fighting chance

President Kilfoyle of the Cleveland Amer
ican League club yesterday signed W. R.
Armour, manager of the Dayton Western
Association club, to manage the Clevelanda
next year in place of McAleer, who re
signed last week. Armour has landed the
pennant for the last three years for Day
Hans Wagner almost has Hickman's rec- i
I ord for all-round playing this season tied.
Wagner has playeu every position with the
Pirates except catcher and pitcher, and he
may have an opportunity in those positions
when the Pittsburgs have the pennant
cinched and can afford to take chances.
The Boston Herald says that Jimmy Col
lins is in need of a better hitting outfield,
and adds that every outfielder should be
able to bat at sl .300 clip. Dowd and Hemp
hill are the outfielders on Collins* team
whose stick work is being criticised. Neither
man is hitting strongly
What a pity it is that the present base
ball war will prevent a meeting between
the pennant winners of the National and
American Leagues. In case Fittsburg and
Chicago, win out, and there is now no good
reason why this should not occur, a series
of games between the clubs would not only
produce some first-class sport, but would
be, worth a barrel of money to the club
owners and the players.
Comiskey does not regard the coming
eastern trip as a particularly hard one
and says his White Stockings have the
American League pennant as good as won
The team plays thirteen games on the
trip, and an even break will cinch the pen
nant. This should be easy, as Griffith and
Callahan are once more in good shape and
can be depended on to do their full share
toward winning games.
There would not be a great amount of
weeping or wailing in and about Cincin
nati if some American League club would
swipe Harry Steinfeldt. The man with the
cast-iron throwing arm has not made good
for the Reds this year, being very weak
at tho bat and slow in the field. The '
chances are that should any of the crop
of youngsters who are to be tried make
good, Steinfeldt will be passed up by the
Reds.?Cincinnati Enquirer.

in a big league last Sunday, and some of
his work in left field was phenomenal. In
the eighth inning he ran from his position
nearly to the place where Conroy stood and
caught a hard fly w!lh one hand. A few
moments before this he had run back Into
the crowd and gobbled one that looked safe
His only success in the batting Hue was a
home run in the second inning of the first
game.?Chicago Chronicle.
Fred Clarke of the Pittsburgs was asked
last Monday in Cincinnati to what he at
tributed the excellent work of his team
this season, and he replied: "In the first
place, we had a strong ball team when we
started into the race. It was in good con
dition, and when a weak spot developed
Mr. Dreyfus did not hesitate to get a man
to fill it to satisfaction Immediately. Fur
thermore, our pitchers have been of the
l*est, the team has played together and
there has been no swell-headedness In our
ranks. Every man on the team Is satisfied
with his lot; we have all worked together
and perhaps we owe something to good
luck for they say that all winning teams
do. I never saw a crowd of players more
interested in their work, however. They
appreciate the club's kind treatment, and
I want to say that the players feel as proud
of their good showing In the race as does
the club of its team."
The season has been a most profitable one
for Comiskey. Even allowing for the exag
gerated attendance figures given out by en
thusiastic partisans. It is safe to estimate
total receipts on the south side grounds
at $11.M)00 Add to this sum about $30,000
as the White Sox's share upon the road, de
duct possibly $45,000 paid out to visiting
clubs, and Comiskey has about $100,000 out
?t to pay h,s bllIs- The salary list of
the Chicago club will run to about $34,000?
that is. for players alone. Rent, ground at
taches and the innumerable expenses of a
club will easily double this for the whole
season. Seventy thousand dollars may be
accepted as a good estimate of Comlskey's
expenses, and a profit of $30,000 will closely
represent his velvet for the year. No won
der that the old Roman thinks base ball in
Chicago is a paying business.?Chicago
Coal Fanner Raftfry Drowned While
Swimming From His Ship.
Chief Clerk Neagle, acting judge advo
cate general of the navy, has rendered an
Interesting decision In regard to the burial
privileges of enlisted men of the navy who
lose their lives while violating the regula
tions of the service. In the case In ques
tion R. G. Raftery, a coal passer attached
to one of the vessels of the Asiatic squad
ron. attempted to swim ashore without
permission while the vessel to which he
was attached was lying hi port. He was
drowned In the attempt and his body was
burled in a local cemetery. Under the
rules of the naval service the bodies of
officers and men who die abroad or who
are killed in action in a foreign land are
brought home at the expense of the gov
ernment and reinterred in the United
States whenever such action is requested
by the_ family or relatives. The brother
of Raftery asked the Navy Department
to take this action In his case, and tho
q"est[on arose at the department as to
whether such privileges extended to cases
iiKe this, where death was not actually
incurred line of duty.
The acting Judge Advocate-general recom
mended, in view of all the, circumstances
of the case, that favorable action be taken
o" the request for the removal of the re
mains to the United States, and the Navy
Department has issued orders accordingly.
There 'was no evidence to show that Raf
intended to desert, the presumption
being rather that he simply desired to go
ashore for a few houri to tWeet a friend.

Sentence of an Insurgent Captain Dis
approved by Gen. Chaffee?De
tail* of Atrocious Deeds.
An official mail just received at the War
Department from the Philippines contains
the records of a large number of atrocious
crimes committed by- natives and others.
The accused were tried before military
i commissions, mostly at Manila.
Eroberto Gumban, an insurgent captain,
j was tried for the alleged murder of Presi
dente Gobuyan of the Pueblo of Pavia.
He was convicted by the military commis
sion and sentenced to be hanged. General
Chaffee disapproved the sentence and re
leased the prisoner, however, on the ground
that his action in the premises was In ac
cordance with civilized warfare. It seems
that Gumban proceeded to the Pueblo of
! Pavia with thirty soldiers for the purpose
of attacking the American garrison. After
, disposing his command for such attack,
and while arranging for a general assault,
' the deceased presidente approached and
I asked his intention. He was answered that
the garrison was to be attacked. He im
[ mediately protested and attempted to re
tire. Captain Gumban informed him that
he was a prisoner and grasped him by the
shoulder. The presidente seized the cap
tain by the throat and attempted to take
his revolver from its holster, whereupon
the Insurgent captain drew his dagger and
stabbed the presidente in the abdomen.
The presidente wrenched the dagger from
the captain and made his escape, but died
a few days later from the effects of the
wound. After the struggle with the de
ceased Captain Gumban and his band with
General Chaffee, in reviewing the case,
said that the accused was acting under a
regular commission, was part and parcel
of the hostile army and was acting under
tho rules of civilized warfare. "His rank
and office was well known to the deceased,"
says General Chaffee, "and that accused
was supported by a force of the hostile
army was evident to him. The apprehen
sion of deceased as a prisoner to prevent
the defeat of a military movement against
a garrison of the enemy was a legitimate
act of war. The deceased resisted that
arrest at his own risk, and although the
resistance was a brave and admirable act,
and the death which resulted is to be de
plored, a felonious killing cannot be dis
torted from the facts."
One of the cases was that of a native
named Juan Bautista Confesor, who was
charged with violating the laws of war,
aiding and abetting the enemy, arson and
perjur>r. He was convicted and sentenced
to be confined at hard labor for twenty
years. It seems that Confesor, while hold
ing an important office in the Pueblo of
Cabatuan, under the occupation of United
States troops, secretly contributed food,
money, clothing and tobacco to the insur
gent soldiers. It is also shown that after
voluntarily taking the oath of allegiance
I to the United States he conspired with the
I insurgent leaders to burn the town of Ca
batuan and surround and attack the United
States troope garrisoned there. He also
encouraged the police force to aid the In
surgents in these acts. The result was that
nearly one hundred houses of the town
were destroyed.
A Number of Atrocious Deeds.
Two other natives were convicted of mur
der and sentenced to be hanged. It was
shown that they enticed Private Eugene R.
Lyons, Company K, 5th Infantry, to an
isolated place in north Ilocos, killed htm
with bolos and buried his body.
In another case Ave natives were con
victed of murder and sentenced to be
hanged. The record shows that these men
seized three other Filipinos, took ;h?m to
an isolated spot and hacked them to death
with bolos, some of the accused adding to
the horror of the crime by assaulting the
women of the families of their victims.
The motive for this crime was revenge on
the part of the leader of the band because
one of the victims had dammed a stream
and diverted water from his land.
A native named Damasclo Biatin* was
condemned to death for the murder of Pri
vate James T. Burgey of Company C. 20th
Infantry, while the latter was acting as a
guard of prisoners at Baratoc, Pana. The
accused was within the American lines dis
guised as a paciAco.
Two other natives were convicted of kid
naping and murder and sentenced to be
hanged. They were members of a band of
armed outlaws that seised and carried off
two friendly natives, whom they delivered
to a band 01 ladronea, tor execution be
