Gilbert Killed 26 Pigeons Straight? Ruhlin Knocks Out M&her ? Base Ball News and Gossip. The rising temperature of the last two days has greatly encouraged the horse-own ers at the Benning track, and a continua tion of the same conditions will And the po nies in very fair condition when the spring meeting starts next Tuesday. Nearly all the horses at the track were out for light work this morning, but none of them did more than it three-quarters spurt. Hopscotch stuck gamely to the track and covered a mile in 1.54. Slldell negotiated six furlongs In 1.1SH4. Gwynn did the same distance in 1.21. Cherries went the hair ia .53. The Rogue also covered six furlongs in l.lP'/t Ohnet took it easy and went the ssme distance in 1.24, while Decanter cov ered five furlongs in 1.09. There was quite a group of onlookers this morning, including a number of ladies, and the work of each horse was watched with considerable interest. The track is getting better each day, and the chances are that a fairly fast course can be expected by the public next Tuesday. With all the improvements made at the tiack the management would be doing the Letting public another good turn by hang ing numbers over each bookmaker or a let tt r. so that in the hurry and bustle a bettor not familiar with the fares of the odd layers can easily recall the book with which he dealt. This suggestion comes from an old-timer, who appreciates the trouble of the novices in the betting ring. Superintendent l,ee has his hands full In getting everything ready for the opening, but with the exception of some little brush ing up here and ti'ere, putting the finishing touches on, so to speak, everything is ieady. now, and the plant presents a met ropolitan appearance. Belmont's String Coming. The horsemen are beginning to show up in numbers, but there are several stables yet to arrive at the track. The Gough acres stable string reached the track late yesterday afternoon. All the horses are looking well. A string from the stable of August Bel mont in South Carolina is due to arrive to morrow, in charge of Assistant Trainer Whalen. This Is proof sufficient that Mr. Belmont will lend his assistance In making the meeting, from a strict racing point of view, worthy of the improved plant and conditions generally. ? The management ofc the Washington Jockey Club has decided to experiment with the prices of admission to the track. Owing to a 50-cent fieldstand having been erected, it has been deemed advisable to raise the price of admlssioii to the grandstand to $1.50. Heretofore the general admission was $1 to all parts of the inclojgnre. To Make Room for Patrons. Secretary Dangerfleld says It Is merely experimental, and the only method that could be devised to thin out the ring. Last fall the ring was so crowded that at times it became congested. It is hard to tell now just how good the racing will be. A reliable authority inti mates that "Bill" Daly will sweep things up pretty clean with his stable, owing to the backwardness of the horses that have wintered here. It Is said that Unmasked has worked six furlongs in 1.18, and was extended all the way. while Daly's Himself covered the same distance at Brooklyn in less than l.lfi, pulling the boy out of the stirrups. These are the two horses well thought ol In the BenniiiKs Handicap on the open ing day. The same authority declares that he has seen but few horses hereabouts that are within two weeks of a race. From this It can be judged that the stables of Daly and Wyndham Walden must be well considered by speculators, as well as the few horses that come from the south and west. EIRST BASE BALL GAME. Local Season Opened by Gallaudet and Emerson. The local base ball season opened with the advent of spring. The Gallaudet and Emerson Institute teams met yesterday af ternoon on the former's campus and in an eight inning game the mutes easily de feated the irstltuto boys by 19 to 3. The winning team had Its pitching corps out yesterday ar.d each one had a try on tho rubber, the bes: record being made by Roason, who In three Innings did not allow a man to reach first base. Sheckles pitched a good game for the first fe w innings, but in the third he had to retire to the bench fiom the hammering that he received at the hands of the mutes. Prince's fielding at second was the best put up by the Emer sons, although as a team they fielded very v.ell. Their great handicap was weakness a*, the bat. MAGNATES TO MEET. National League Officials, to Get To gether and Arrange Schedule. That the National League Club owners will have a meeting in New York city next week is no longer being denied by the va rious magnates. They may change the date from March 24 to 25 or 26, but they are surely going to get together and at least frame their playing schedule for the season. Two semi-official announcements were made yesterday to the effect that the mag nates will be in New York on Monday and meet Tuesday, and also that a schedule will b'e promulgated before next Saturday. From Chicago comes the report that A. G. Spalding Is now on his way east and will be within call when the magnates or their representatives, meet. It has also been learned in Chicago that so eager is Andrew Freedman for an assurance that the National league wiH begin the season with a circuit of>ight iclubs that he is willing to remain Away^from the meeting altogether and leave his interests in the hands of a representative. With Spalding and Freedman out of the meeting it is thought the diplqmata .and peacemakers can bring about a'ffucer The magnates have been bothered about the legal way to cpll their meeting, buf Col. Rodgers of Ptfttade^hla claims he has surmounted the difficulty. One plan is to resolve all the representatives who attend the meeting into a committee of the whole. The dates will be discussed In open meet ing and a subcommittee appointed to get up the schedule. O oq Killed Twenty-fiix Birds Straight. Fred Gilbert of Spirit bLake, Iowa, again took the honors iff'the'1 Limited Gun Club shoot yesterday at -Indianapolis, winning the Grand Central, handicap, with a score of 20 straight. He had to fight it out with V E. Hicks of Columbus. Ohio, who killed 25 straight, but who missed the first bird of the shoot-off. All through Hicks set the pace. He had a bit the advantage, for he shot from the 28-yard mark, while Gilbert was on the Si-yard mark. The two men divided first money and shot off tor the medal. There were thirty-seven entries in all and the first money amounted to $277.50, retting each man *138.75. The second m-*n were Rhades. Head of Peru and Fox, who divided $208.10. The third men were Ahlrrs. Vories of Craw fordsvllle. Helkes of Dayton and Budd of Iowa. They spilt $138.75. TBs JfoVth men were Rlke of D*yfc>n. Cla#, Phil Young All the Local Clubs Unusually Prosperous. PLANS OF THE SEASON GREEN COMMITTEES REVIEWING THE WINTER'S HARD WORK. Washington, Chevy Chase, Colombia and Dumbarton Clubs Make Many Improvements. From the present outlook the approach ing golf season promises to eclipse any of its predecessors from a legislative or play ing standpoint. The United States Golf As sociation. which has been rather storm tossed for some years, is in far better shape than ever, and is at present constituted of officials whose knowledge of the require ments of the game is only equaled by their loyalty to the sport. The effect of the re cent reconstruction in the governing bodj is becoming more apparent daily, as sug gested reforms which have been hanging fire for years are assuming tangible shape, with the result that the next amateur ar.d women's championships will be run off un der approved conditions that have been ad vocated for many years. As all the local organizations belong to the IT. S. G. A., it is a foregone conclusion that the recom mendations for handicapping will be adopted at all the tourneys. The four dubs of the Di<*trict of Columbia have attracted consid erable attention all over the country on ac count of the clever playing of their repre sentatives. and 't is a foregone conclusion that they will share In the game s prosper ity that is sweeping the country. The Pioneer Club. The golf enthusiasts of the "\\ ashington club are looking forward to an unusually good season, the prospects being mo3t promising that their hopes will be gratified. The Washington club is the pioneer golf club of the District of Columbia, and there are many members who want all the so cial features cut away from the organiza tion. so that all the time and money can be spent on the great Scotch game. Ball, the professional of the club, and the green committee have been working like Trojans during the past couple months upon the course, and without fear of con tradiction the links can be said to be In the best condition since the club was organ ized It is a nine-hole course, but laid out in a way to gratify the most ambitious of ^It was the intention of the Washington club to hold its annual Easter tournament at the usual time this spring, but the con tinued bad weather will probably cause a further postponement. When this tourna ment is played its chief prize will be the President's cup, a splendid trophy donate*! by President Henry May of the Washington club This c\ip should have been played for iast Christmas, but a continued run of bad weather resulted In a postponement. The contest for this trophy is a handicap match plav and has always created consid erable Interest. As heretofore, the Wash ington club exp?cts to be as prominent as possible in the local golf world, and will contribute its share toward the advance ment of the sport through its three regular tournaments, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. . The members of the Washington club were unusually gratified and elated over the good-news that came from Palm Peach. Fla last Tuesday night, telling of the vic tory of Miss Elsie G. Jackson of Connec ticut avenue, this city, who is a prominent member of the organization. Miss Jackson was entered in the handicap foursome match and captured the handsome cup of fered for the best gross score. She is very popular among the golf enthusiasts of this city and being one of the charter members of the Washington club, that organization has reason to be proud of its fair represen tative who has done so well on foreign links. . xw Attorney General Knox Is an enthusiastic golfer, and with Solocitor General Richards can be seen on almost any pleasant day tramping over the links of the "Washington club, of which organization both are mem b^rs. Secretary and Treasurer Edward Rlggs re ports a big increase in the Washington club membership, and says the outlook is most promising. Mr. Riggs is one of the veter ans of the local golf field, and has all the data at his finger tips. In speaking of the advancement of the game in the last ten years Mr. Rlggs recalls the fact that In the early days of the Washington club the expenses for the year were kept within the $2.<>00 mark, while now $10.0<)0 will hardly suffice to cover all the expenditures. Chevy Chase's Bright Prospects. Notwithstanding that the course of the Chevy Chase Golf Club has the reputation of being almoSt a perfect one. the green committee, under the leadership of Mr. Oden Horstman, has not been idle during the past winter. Acting under instructions, James Douglas, the clut"*~ professional, has seen to It that the gr< i ns have been ten :lerly nursed, and when they are thrown open to play the first week in April it is promised that they will be the finest the club has ever had. I^ast season crab grass caused considerable trouble, but it is be lieved that all the roots have been dug up. and that the bothersome weed will be kept off the Chevy Chase for evermore. Another decided improvement is looked for on the eleventh and twelfth holes. The ?leventh hole will be shortened something like 125 yards, while the twelfth will be lengthened fully 200 yards. The green com mittee made a careful inspection of the ?ourse last week, and after due deliberation lecided upon this improvement. It is also expected that one or more bunkers will be idded to the course. On all bright days during the past win ter enthusiastic golfers have been out on the course, and. although the substitute greens had to be used, the scores recorded were unusually good, demonstrating the substantial advancement of the younger set of players. Although nothing definite has been decid ed upon, Mr. Ormsby McCammop informed i Star reporter this morning that the regu lar spring tournament of the Chevy Chase 3olf Club will probably take place about the first week in May. The records were proken last fall in the number of entries to :he tournament, but with anything like pleasant weather. It is expected that still i larger list of names will have to be hung jp. Washington golfers have created very favorable Impressions on foreign links, with :he result that It is more than likely that several of the crack golfers of the Metro politan and Philadelphia districts, as well is several from the west, will have their names among the entries of the Chevy ?hase club this spring. A promised event this summer, which should create unusual Interest, Is an inter ;ity match between Philadelphia and this llty. The teams will comprise ten of the pest players of the Quaker city district and ten of the cleverest selected from the four ilubs of this city. Chevy Cnase will proba Ply have the larger number of players on the Washington team on account of its irestige gained on hard-fought fields in sea sons past, while the cream of the Columbia s.nd Washington clubs will be asked to Join the representatives of this city. Columbia's Many Improvements. Prosperity with a big "P," and prospects of the brightest, covers, in a few words, the outlook for the coming season of thar vig prous young organization, the Columbia Golf* Club. The present membership Is the larg est since the club was organized The Colum blas vie with the Washington in pushing the fascinating game to the front, as no other sport is considered in this organiza tion. A big majority of the members have only been playing golf for a couple of yeara, and there is no enthusiast like the begin ner. The green committee last fall laid out an entirely new set of greens, and as they have been tenderly nourished and cared for during the winter the prospects are that they will be almost perfect when the reg-. ular season opens. The course ia in charge of Arthur Smith, who came here from Pittsburg, and as he Is one of the heat exerts of the country all the little details have been looked after with untiring inter 1111 u 111 ui i i tn i i m i1 |n?

He has had the entire course rolled in the most thorough manner, and the ruller will be kept continuously at work up until the last moment. Mr. Smith has a most congenial temperament, and every member of the club has voted hiin a splendid f? 1 low. The cutting through the course of Illinui avenue has seriously handicapped the cli:i for the past year or more, and after . warm agitation by the members a permit was secured for the erection of a wagon bridge over the avenue. This work has been let out by contract, and It is expect* d that work on the structure will commence next week. When completed the bridge will fill a long-felt want, and be an im provement appreciated by every member of the club. Another Improvement in con templation is the erection of a building out side the club house for the use of Mr. Smith and the small army of caddies em ployed by the club. The details of this im provement have not been worked out yet, but it is expected that everything will be In readiness to begin work before the sea son Is far advanced. The chief event of the season will be the regular spring tourney, which has been scheduled for May 15, li? and 17. It will be an open handicap, and it is expected that a great list of names will be handed in before the opening day. The advancement of the Columbia players has been most marked during the past two seasons, and it is not Impossible that several crack players will be developed this summer. Already the club possesses a quartet of the best players of the District, and it is to be hoped that at least a half dozen more will be able to Join ti**8 group and advance the club's standard In the playing line. Dr. L. L. Harban and Mr. John Davidson, two of Columbia's premier players, left last night for St. Augustine, Fla., where they will take part In the big tournament at that place next week. Dr. Harban played sensational golf on the St. Augustine links last spring, and carried off the chief trophy of the event, not to mention several other highly prized mementoes of the meet. The doctor has kept himself in good condition by occasional play during the winter, and his host of friends wish him all sorts of good luck on his present trip. Mn L. W. Weaver of the Columbia Club has been dowp in Florida taking part in the different tourneys this winter, and last Thursday made a splendid showing in the play for the Joseph Jefferson cup at Palm Beach, working his way down until the srmi-flnals. when he succumbed to Mr. Tappan by one stroke. Mr. Weaver will probably join Messrs. Harban and Davidson at St. Au gustine, and between this strong trio one of the trophies should be won. Dumbarton Club's Plans. At the Dumbarton Club the definite plans for the spring season wait on a meeting of the greens committee next Monday evening. At that session Mr. Reginald Looker, who is captain of the course, will outline to his associate members of the committee a series of club contests and matches with other clubs which will probably exceed In number of matches any other record of the club. Interest In golf among the Dum barton members is more active than ever before. Recent rains have left the course In rath er bad shape. One hole. No. 8, has been under water for several weeks, and many of the other greens have been greatly dam aged by water which has backed up from small ponds. These ponds are nearly all caused by constructions now in progress in the neighborhood of the links and will disappear with the completion of the work. Wherever this is not the case efforts will be made to prevent a recurrence of this spring's experience by building small bar riers to prevent the back-flow of the water toward the greens. In addition to this work the greens committee will put the course In the best possible condition, devoting par ticular attention to the fair greens. A club tournament has already been scheduled for May .'to. Other matches have been practically agreed upon as follows: With the other clubs of the District for The Evening Star Cup; with the two golf clubs of Baltimore; and club matches on the various holidays of the year. District and Maryland Golfers Or ganize. A most important organization of golf interests was effected in Baltimore last Monday night,when the Golf Association of Maryland and the District of Columbia was formed at the Baltimore Country Club. For several months the formation of the association has been a subject of discussion among the golf clubs of the District and the adjoining state. Mr. Alexander Pay son Knapp, chairman of the golf commit tee of the Baltimore Country Club, becom ing convinced of the desirability of such in organization, proceeded to correspond with the state and District clubs and got together much data of interest. As a re sult, early In the month Mr. Knapp sent In vitations to the following clubs, request ing them to have representatives at the meeting held in Baltimore last Monday night. Elkrldge Hunt Club, Woodstock post office; Annapolis Golf Club, Annapol.*. Md. Naval Academy Golf Club, Annapoli- V I. Clifton Park Golf Club, Baltimore: land Bicycle Club.

Sudbrook, Md.; Luthervtlle 3olf Club, Luthervllle, Md.; Washington Golf Club. Washington; Columbia Golf 21ub, Washington. Some of the clubs failed to have per sonal representatives present last night, but they all favored the Idea and will join later. The association is limited to organised clubs in Maryland and the District of Co lumbia and to clubs having links within three miles of the District of Columbia. This last provision was made for the reason that the Washington club has Its course over In Virginia. A constitution and by-laws modeled after those of the Western Golf Association of Chicago were adopted. It is the intention to have every autumn a tourney to deter mine which member is the champion for the year. The following officers were elected: Mr. Alexander Payson Knapp of the Bal timore Country Club, president Mr. Oden Horstman of the Chevy Chase Club. Washington. D. C.. vice president. Mr. ft- W. Graves of the Sudbrook Park Golf Club, secretary. ? ? Mr. F. R. Parks of the Colombia Golf CHib of Washington. D. C., tiwurer. These officer*, with Mr. N. Winslow Wllr of the Klkrldfte Club, will constitute the executive committee. This committee win govern the tournaments and attend to th* other business of the association, and win hold office for on* year. The a?si (lues of each club in the association are to be 115.

The only unusual play was at the four teenth hole. jvhere Cory drove onto the Kreen. but Ir.'water. The rule is that the ball must be dropped behind the water when on a putting green, and as the water flooded the ground for thirty yards or more, Cory was compelled to drop the ball thirty yards away and play a masliie shot over the pine trees. Cory played golf that was hard to beat. DOWN THE ALLEYS. Business Men Slaughtered the Golden Eagles. The Golden Eagles bowling team took on one of its erratic flights last night, in its contest with the Business Men's club, and as a result, when the dust had settled, the latter had placed three straight games to its credit. The poor alleys of the Business Men discouraged the Eagles, but It would seem that players of their class should be able to bowl over the 800 mark on a tow path. Not once did the Eagles reach a flrst-class score, while the Business Men put up two very good games, and won one by the narrow margin of one pin. I,elm back of the Business Men was the star of the evening, capturing high-score honors by knocking over 12*Ki pins, and also the best average, lfvl. Brandt and Ludwlg, two of the top-notch bowlers of the District League, did poor work last night, and went away down the list. Following are the scores of last night's games: FIRST GAME.

The contest took place In the National Guard gymnasium before a large gathering, ft was the lowest score made by any one team in the local league this season. Every kind of stratagem known to basket ball was Indulged in by both teams last night, but to no advantage, and the only score that was made in the first half was secured by Rice of the Mortons, who la.ided the leather Into the net on a free throw.
