After four straight defeats the news of a victory was most welcome, as the Washington enthusiasts had about made up their minds that the Senators wouldn't win again until they got home. A Winning Twirler. Case Patten was the bright particular star of yesterday's game, from a Washington point of view, and this sturdy left-hander seems to have developed into the Senators' winning twirler. Toward the close of last season Patten was pitching about the best ball in the American League, and It was the general opinion that he was a slow starter, but a good finisher, the hot weath er apparently helping his speed. But Pat ten's work this spring dispelled that idea, as the young man'seems to have come to stay at all seasons, and can be rated from this on as a reliable twirler at all points of the route. For four innings Patten kept the Bostons from making a hit, and in the fifth a bur.t was pulled off that should have been out, but for the mixed intentions of the twirler and Wolverton. The ball rolled toward third and Wolverton thought Patten wanted to field the hit and kept out of the way. Patten thought Wolverton would tsike care of it and through the "Alphonse and Gaston" act the runner was safe. The wise spectators predicted th^it the play would be the beginning of the end of Pat ten's good twirling, but the auburn-haired boy took a reef in his trousers, braced himself and for two innings more the Bos t< ns failed to land the sphere safely. In the seventh the first real hit of the game was made. Ferris led off with a nice single and the Boston "fans" let out a yell of en couragement, but Patten continued his good work, and the next three batters went out in order, and Mr. Ferris failed to score. Located Patten Successfully. In the eighth the Bostons located Patten successfully for two, a single and triple, and scored the only run. Stahl led off with a single, and "Buck" Freeman's triple sent him over the plate. Hickman then hit a slow one to the infield and Freeman tried to score, but Ely nailed him at the plate with a pretty throw to Drill. Patten con tinued his good work in the ninth and the battle was over, with the majority of runs placed to the credit of the Senators. George Winters, the Gettysburg boy, was on the rubber for the Bostons and he. too, pitched a good game, but his support was very much on the order of that given Town send by the Senators on Wednesday. Six mispiays marked the Beaneaters' work, which being mixed up with six timely hits, scored the five runs for the Senators. The work of the Washington players was exceptionally brilliant, but one misplay be ing charged against the Washington ag gregation. this a fumble by Wolverton. Ely. Carey. Drill and Keister simply killed off budding base hits the veteran shortstop having apparently made up his mind that one off day was enough for the season. Keister on Second. That hard-working lad, Billy Coughlin, was out of the game on account of injuries received in Wednesday's game. Coughlin likes the game and wants to play at all times, but his injured hand was too much of a handicap, and Manager Loftus sent him out to watch the turnstile. Billy Keis ter was pulled into second base and Wyatt Lee went into center. The Baltimore lad demonstrated that he had not forgotten how to play an infield position by accepting six chances in clean style, while Lee gathered in two flies and hammered out a timely double. The Senators broke the ice in the first in ning. getting one run. Ryan hit to Collins and was safe on the latter's bad throw. Jimmy started to steal second on Warner's | bad throw and continued on to third. Keis j ter and Wolverton failed to score the Sena J tor. but Del tore off a timely single and | Ryan crossed the plate. J In the second another tally went up for Washington. Ely going to second on Ferris' error on his hit and scored on Drill's good drive. Winters then put or steam and for five | innings the Senators failed to score, but In the eighth the third run was hung up. After Patten had been given a base on balls and forced at second by Ryan, and the lat ter had been forced at second in turn by Keister. Harry Wolverton drove a ripping liner into right, which Mr. Freeman al lowed to get away from him and Keister scored. The Bostons also made a tally in this in ning. their only score. In the ninth Wash ington added two more for good measure, as a result of Parent's error on Delehanty's hit and two doubles by I^e and Carey Following is the score: BOST ri ? WASHINGTON-. R.H.O.A.K.

Connie Mack is doing some tall hustling these days to find some way of further out witting Colonel Rogers, the injunction hun ter, and from the latest reports he will turn another trick lira few days that will clean up the legal fight so far as Philadelphia is concerned. It Is reported that, in order to dodge any move Rogers might make to secure Monte Cross, the latter will be sent to W ashlngton, and Fred Ely, who is play ing shortstop for the Senators, and who played with the Athletics last season, will go to Philadelphia. This is rather hard luck for Monte, whose home is in the Quaker city, but rather than allow the Na tional League to get him this move is con templated. Some excitement was caused yesterday by the report that Elmer Flick, who was sent to Cleveland to dodge the Philadelphia court's decision, had changed his mind and was on his way to St. Louis to join the Phillies. Word was received last night from St. Louis stating that nothing had been heard of Flick. Manager Mack is not much disturbed over Colonel Rogers' latest threat regarding Monte Cross and Flick. He said yesterday: 1 hi' west is not a National League coun try, and the state of Ohio is not Pennsyl vania, and possibly Colonel Rogers will not find the same easy sailing there that he has in this vicinity." AFTER MORE PLAYERS. Magnate Rogers Will Ask for Injunc tions Against Flick and Cross. From the- Philadelphia Times. The base ball controversy will be reopened in a day or so, and the fight for players be tween the Philadelphia National League club and the clubs who signed former Phil adelphia players will be continued in earn est. Col. John I. Rogers has been arranging plans for carrying on the fight, while the opposition feels rather hopeful since the de cision of the Missouri court, which refused to grant Injunctions to the St. Louis Na tional League team against Wallace, Held rick and Harper. Col. Rogers, when seen about the Phila delphia courts yesterday, said that the Philadelphia club has had bills in equity against Flick and Cross prepared for the past few days. He explained, however, that the suits were not filed because of negotia tions between the two players and Manager Shettsline looking to an amicable settle ment of their differences. These negotiations, he added, were opened by the p'ayers themselves telegraphing from Washington and asking for interviews on fixed dates. The players neglected to keep the engagements. Afterwards Flick telegraphed to Mr. Shettsline at New York that he could not see him at the time stated. "We understood from other sources," con tinued Col. Rogers, "that Cross and Flick desired to talk business in view of the court s decision, and we, therefore, did not want to harass them needlessly with in junction bills, and, furthermore, we did not desire to cause unnecessary trouble and liti gation. "I understand now, however, and see it reported in the papers, that Flick has been traded to the Cleveland club. If this is true we will retain counsel in Cleveland and one or two other American League cities, inclu sive, most likely, in Boston, and see if the courts in those cities will not follow the un answerable law and equity of the suprem? court of Pennsylvania. "As for Monte Cross, he is a resident of this city, and the same urgency that is needed in any other case against our play ers is not necessary in his case. We expect him, as a law-abiding citizen, to cease being a contract-breaker, and report for duty without further notice or legal process. We will not file a bill against him until we feel sure that such summary action and com pulsion are necessary. As for the three en joined players, their salaries will start as soon as they report for duty, and no sooner." Mr. Rogers' attention was then directed to the decisions in the St. Louis courts, and he had this to say in regard thereto: "The decisions of the St. Louis courts are those of Inferior tribunals; certainly not higher In dignity nor Importance than our local common pleas courts. I feel sure that the supreme court of Missouri will reverse their finding the same as our supreme court did the original action of common pleas court No. 5 In the Lajole case." MORRIS FARE RACES. Old England Demonstrates That He is the Best Sprinter. Among the sprinters that have thus far performed at Morris Park, Green B. Morris" three-year-old. Old England, by Goldflncl., dam Queen Bess, has shown himself tho best. Over the last six furlongs of the Withers course yesterday he won the Crotona han dicap much more decisively than he did the Toboggan handicap last Saturday. He dem onstrated that he could ran around turns fully as well as he could descend the Eclipse hill, and he was equal to any pace or any company. O'Connor, who had ridden Old England at Oakland last winter, begged Green Morris to let him pilot the colt in the Crotona, and obtained the mount. Arthur Featherstone, O'Connor's employer, scratched Arsenal, In at 107, and put a big bet on Old England Frank Farrell and his friends showered money Into the ring, to be placed on The Musketeer, and followers of W. C. Whltney'8 colors backed Ballyhoo Bey almost as con fidently as they did when he ran In the To boggan. Whiskey Klnk was backed and also tipped as a good thing. Easy for Old England. After The Musketeer had delayed the start by wheeling, plunging and kicking, the five were sent away to an even break. Once fairly In action the big Goldfinch colt made a dash that drew exclamations of surprise and admiration from the spectators. In a furioiig he had liis neck and shoulders in front, and O'Connar was-;nlmost rigid In the saddle. ? As they came around the turn he was flanked by The Musketeer on the outside and Whisktfy King on the inside, with Bal lyhoo Bey two open lengths away. Before the stretch was reached The Musketeer and Old Engrand shook off Whlkey King, and as they straightened for home there was no perceptible difference in favor of either. The Musketeer's backers began to exult when that colt's neck showed in advance with less than a quarter to go. Their happiness was of brief duration. When O'Connor let out a wrap the big coif under him easily resumed the lead and strode away from his companion. After he had assumed a lead of two open lengths he was taken In hand and loped by th* judges' stand in 1.14. Whiskey King finished strong, half a length behind The Musketeer, who was fully ex tended. Ballyhoo Bey was eased home by Burns. He was audibly wheezing as he passed the finishing line. Mr. Hitchcock's Success. Thomas Hitchcock has for years been rec ognized as'a liberal patron of the turf and a clever horseiman. This season he is training his own horses, and with signal ability. He has transformed Dr. Riddle from a cheap selling plater to very near a handicap horse. The manner In which Dr. Riddle yesterday won the Harlem, a selling stake of a mile, with so good a performer as Intrusive be hind him, was equally astonishing and Im pressive. He rated behind Leischen to the stretch, and there went to the front, finally finishing alone. He carried 111 pounds and Intrusive 123. Intrusive is highly esteemed as a weight carrier and a stretch runner. He was with in striking distance at the end of three quarters and was expected to have little trouble In getting the stakes. His backers were grievously disappointed, for Dr. Rid dle, without being touched, beat him at the stretch,running game and actually ran away from him. Along with a number of other horses belonging to Mr. Hitchcock the win ner was wintered at Aiken, S. C. Chilton was an almost prohibitive favorite for the first race. At 1 to 3 he was backed by several big betters, including his owner. George E. Smith. The race was hardly good exercise for Chilton. He won, pulling up, by four lengths, In 1.15. In the last stride Neither One beat Khltal for the place. Charles Elwood had a field of nine two year-old colts the last five furlongs of the Eclipse course. A dash of four and a half furlongs down the hill, for fillies and geld ings. brought out a field of twelve and went to Alan, with the heavily played Prlda of Galore In the ruck. Old Ethics, Himself and Surmise meas ured strides with Watercolor In the handi cap of a mile. Watercolor's weight was 120 pounds, and he made his field look like hacks. Even at 2 to 9 he was heavily played. CRACK TARGET SHOOTERS. C. W. Floyd Won First Prize in Grand American Handicap. In decisive style C. W. Floyd of New York yesterday carried off first prize In the Grand American handicap at Inanimate targets, held under the auspices of the In terstate Association at Interstate Park, Queens, L. I. Floyd made a score of 94 out of a possible 100. The winner shot from the eighteen yard mark. Hi3 tokens of reward were $138 and a silver tea set, valued at $100. Second money, amounting to J114, went to R. B. Guy of Mechanicsburg, Ohio. In all $1)50 In prize money was divided. The competition was decided under favor able weather conditions. There was plenty of light while the shooters were at the traps and there was very little wind blowing. Floyd shot from the same mark as E. C. Griffiths of Pascoag, Mass., who won both the live bird and target competitions last year. Ninety-one men faced the traps this year, as against seventy-four last year. Although he has completed In numerous live bird and target contests, the winner never before figured conspicuously in an open shoot. Scores credited to prize winners are: Competitor. Score. C. W.

Pitcher "Dummy" Taylor of the New York team, who Jumped Cleveland and re turned to the Giants Wednesday, says posi tively that McCarthy, the outfielder, and Bradley, the third baseman of the.Cleve lands, would follow his example and return to the National League. McCarthy and Bradley will rejoin the Chicago National League team, according to Taylor, within a few days. "The only reason McCarthy and Bradley did not jump last winter," said Taylor yes terday, "was because of the fight In the National League, which made them feel a little shaky about the success of that league. Now that everything is going smoothly they will rejoin the Chicago club. Pitcher "Wright Jumps Cleveland. CLEVELAND, Ohio, May P.?Pitcher Clarence E. Wright of the Cleveland Amer ican League club is said to have followed the example of "Dummy" Taylor and jump ed the local team. At the office of the Cleveland base ball club Wright is said to have left for Pittsburg late last night, where he will join the Brooklyn National League club today. Wright signed contracts with both Cleve land and Brooklyn for the present season. Junior Base Ball.

In the second period the Englishmen be gan piling up goals so rapidly that they checked the Americans' enthusiasm. The score stood 5 to 1 until the fifth period. Thereafter the visitors added two goals to their score. Mr. Keene played only ten minutes to test his form, and found he was very weak. Before play Mr. Keene said: "In regard to these preliminary games, they are simply practice. We do not at tach much importance to whether we win or lose. We have got a lot to learn about the English rules. The chief thing is for our fellows to play as much as possible, and we think we shall show a much stronger team than now when the first cup match is played, at the end of the month."

Davis, judge advocate general, has made a statement to Adju tant General Corbin of the case of Private E. C. Rlchter, Company I, 28th Infantry, who Is alleged to have died of ill treatment at the hands of Lieutenant Sinclair. The statement says, among other things, that the charges against Richter were serious, involving insubordinate conduct and dis obedience of orders. According to the statement, Richter was so abusive in his treatment of Lieut. Sin clair and to other prisoners where he was confined that a member of the guard was ordered to throw cold water In the prison er's face in order to get him to desist. The water was thrown from a distance of about eight feet, and was continued at intervals when cursing occurred, covering a period of about three minutes. As the abusive language continued, with a view to put an effectual stop to the abusive and obscene language, Lieut. Sin clair ordered the prisoner gagged, which was done by the sergeant of the guard with the assistance of the members of the guard. A transcript of the testimony of Sergt. McDermott is incorporated in the state ment to show that no undue severity was used toward Richter. The statement relates how Lieut. Sinclair later in the night, upon being aroused, went himself for a surgeon. When he returned Richter was dead. A post-mortem examination of the body was made by the post surgeon. Many organs of the body were found to be normal. However, both lungs were so much Involved as to cause surprise that Richter had been able to pass the physical examination required of recruits upon en listment. In the opinion of the examining surgeon, Richter's death was caused by the accidental entrance of vomltus into tra chea and bronchial tubes. Whether the foreign substance would have been expelled had the prisoner been of normal lung capacity no opinion is ex pressed. The cause of death assigned was apneumatosia. or choking, due to the pres ence of a foreign substance In the bronchial tubes. The death of Private Richter was prompt ly reported to the department commander, who immediately ordered an investigation. The facts were fully stated to the inspec tor, who recommended, after a thorough In quiry, that no further proceedings be had. The recommendation of the Inspector was not accepted, and, upon the receipt of the Inspection report, the case was ordered to be Investigated by a general court-mar tial. The proceedings of the court have not yet reached the department. HYATTSVTLLE AND VICINITY. Base Ball Club Organized ? Building Boom?Bridge Ordered. Special Correspondence of The Erenlng Star.
