The downpour of rain yesterday afternoon
about :i oclock that swept over the upper
part of the city made American League
-Park unfit for ball playing. and the game
Scheduled between Washington and Cleve
land was called off. The two teams are
playing a double-header today in conse
Manager Barnard of the Clevelands and
Mlanager Donovan of Washington also made
arrangements to play a second double head
er on Friday. so that the two teams can
leave here Friday evening and get to
Cleveland in time for a game there Satur
day afternoon. Saturday is a big day in
the west, and it looked like too good a
business proposition to let the opportunity
slip by without entertaining the big crowd
that is expected when the Clevelands return
bome. The Blues have been going at a
splendid gait of late, and the Cleveland
people are anxious to show their apprecia
In this afternoon's games. Patten and
Donohue faced each other in the first
game. while Jack Townsend and Bernhard
will probably hook up in the second.
Tomorrow the greatly discussed Sunday
School League game with the Senators will
be pulled off at American League Park. the
Cleveland management being persuaded to
stand aside and witness the fun. The thou
sands of followers of the Sunday School
League in this city will turn out to cheer
on their favorites, and it goes without say
ing that there will be plenty of sport at
American League Park tomorrow after
noon. The gates will be opened early, so as
to allow the enthusiasts plenty of oppor
tunity to see the players of both teams
Umpire Betts. who will have charge of
the Sunday school team, has ordered the
players to report to him at the Ebbitt
House tomorrow afternoon. and they will
be taken to the park in the hig hotel
The players of the Sunday School League
team have not been finally decided upon as
yet, but the chances are big that the two
teams will line up as follows:

For substitutes Mr. Betts has Speakman
for behind the bat and Sheckeis. Harring
and Hutchinson to back up Wahler should
he be hit hard. R. Hoffman will be on
band to go into the outfield in case of need
and the team has a very strong look. Each
player will appear in the uniform of the
team of which he Is a member. From the
sale of megaphones and bells down town
this morning there is a chance of somebody
being put out of business by the Sunday
School League followers. If the profes
sionals show any signs of getting rattled
there will be enough noise made to make
one think a sham battle by the local
militia is on.
Manager Donovan's injured leg has im
proved nicely in the last twenty-four hours,
but for fear of further injury he will stay
out of the game for the remainder of the

Wesley and Sixth Played Rxhibitior
The Wesley Chapel Sunday school teani
lost their game with the Sixth Presbyteriar
team on the White Lot last evening by for
feit, owing to the fact that their team was
not fully represented. An exhibition gam
was pulled off, however, the Methodist
boys borrowing Gordon for the occasion,
but were also unsuccessful in this, the
score being 13 to 11 against them.
Kettler and Harries were the opposin8
slantamen. and considering that this was
the former hoy's first attempt this seasol
he handled himself creditably. The Pres
byterians touched him up for fourteen sife
ties, however; but as he kept these well
scattered the defeat may also be attributcd
to the loose fielding in his wake. Harries
served his benders in his usual good man
ner for the winners, but his support was
far from being sensational. and had he not
gone after the little grounders which seem
ed to puzzle his shortstop in the last inn
ing, his team would have very probably
Notwithstanding the loose playing that
was in vogue, the contest proved to be of
great interest to the large number of fans
present, because of the equal manner in
which the errors were divided.
Rider of Sixth, who covered second, and
J. Ellett, who played in the same position
on the Methodist team, divided the batting
hcnors, each securing three hits out of
four times up.

Trouble in Giants' Camp.
From the New York Journal.
Rain caused a postponement of the games
both at the Polo Grounds and American
League Park yesterday afternoon. The
fact that neither Devlin nor Mertes was to
have played with the Giants yesterday
caused rumors that there was some ditl
culty between those players and Manager
McGraw, but they could not be verified.
Devlin was reported to be "injured." and
Mertes "under the weather." Devlin was
all right when he arrived from Elmira yes
Roger Bresnahan was wired yesterday to
Toledo to report at once. He may possibly
arrive in time to play today.
If Devlin or Mertes is not able to play
this afternoon probably McGraw will go to
third and Dunn to left.
BBIGHTON BEACH RACES.
Four Favorites and Two Second Choices
Landed the lgoney.
The finish of the Seashore handicap, one
mile and a quarter, at Brighton yesterday
was so close that only the judges were able
to select the Winner. At an angle it looked
as if Hurst Park had won by a head, but
as a matter of fact August Belmont's Lord
of the Vale, the four-year-old son of Hast
ings-Lady Violet, was victorious by this
margin, and was so placed by Judge Mc
Dowell. Associate Judge Pettingill, Stew
ards P. J. Dwyer, Andrew Miller and W. S.
Vosburgh and Assistant Secretary of the
Jockey Club Algernon Daingerfld. who
were all In the direct line of vision, back
ed up McDowell to a man, while other
turfmen who were close to the finish line
had no fault to find with the ruling. Yet
the crowd hissed and groaned, feeling con
vinced that Hurst Park should have re
ceived the ver-dict. The track was sloppy
with mud and the talent made Major Dain
gerfld the lavorite at 1.3 to 10. The Major
ran one of hIs bad races and was dis
gracefully beaten, finishing absolutely last.
Hurst Park piisked up 1261 pounds and
gave twelve to Lord of the Vale, who was
ridden by C. Kelly. Hurst Park went back
in the betting from 8 to 5i to 12 to 5, while
Lord of the Vale was played all along the
line at 11 to 5I. It was a duel between
Lord of the Vale and Hurst Park all, the
way, They were neck and neck at the
beginning of the far turn, where Hurst
Park drew away. At the head of the
pstretch the latter tried to run out and
IHildebrand had all he could do to keep him
straight. When Kelly went to the whip
Lord of the Vale made a tremendous spurt
and gained so rapidly that Hildebrand
drew his weapon too. Hurst Park was half
a length in front at a point 100 yards from
the wire and was still ibearing out, Lord
of the Vale. under punishment, then swerv
ed over toward the inner rall, and when the
tow horse passed the judges the crowd was
in an uproar. Many ran tio the stewards'
stand when Lord of the Vale's number was
hoisted, but there was no disorder beyond
a hissing and jeering which was entirely

P. Ryan's Honiton, 7 to 5 favorite. Re
liable could not run in the mud, some of
the sharps said, and there was 6 to 1 in
some books after he had opened at 5 to 2.
Ibut he was soon backed down to 16 to 5.

Ward and Wright Won Hard Fought
Matches at Longwood.
Expeditious work by the committee
brought the single matches in the Long
wood. Mass., Cricket Club's tennis tourna
ment to the fourth round yesterday, so
that the twenty-three pair entered for the
eastern doubles championship will start
today with a well-cleaned field. The play
ers found the grounds in far better condi
tion than Monday, but many suffered from
the humid weather conditions.
The best match of the day was between
Holcombe Ward and A. E. Bell, the Cali
fornia champion. Although the eastern
man won, his opponent gave him a stiff
four-set battle, playing the same net game.
In the first set Ward could not get into his
swing and was very unsteady. Bell won,
9-7. Ward then braced and won the next
three sets and the match.
One of the best matches of the day was
that between Wright- and Hooker. Hooker
made a good start and played some bril
liant strokes, covering his court well, while
Wright was content to take things easy.
Wright took the first set. 6-2, and after
Hooker had forced the games to deuce in
the second took that also. In the last set
Hooker tired badly and defaulted before it
was finished. The summary:

The Boston Americans have been in the
lead since April 19.
Donahue of Chicago made his first home
run last Friday. He has not made an error
at first in thirty-two games.
Selee's team went down badly before. the
New York Nationals. That clinches the Na

The New York Herald says that Jones,
Green, Callahan and Davis constitute the
fastest string seen at the New York Ameri
can League park this season.
Billy Reidy, the hero of the slow ball, who
was released by Brooklyn a few days ago,
has been signed by Louisville. Billy only
pitched one fast ball in his Ufe, and that
nearly killed Kruger of the Pirates last fall.
Orth can do more with a good head and
perfect control than some pitcher. can do
with the speed of a ganelle and curves that
would put a summer girl to shame.
There's a one-armed pitcher out in Iowa,
Stephens by name, who has been doing all
sorts of effective stunts. The record for
one game this year credited to him 1. twelve
strike outs, a three-bagger, two bagger and
single, two stolen bases and three runs.
"Mike" Lynch is malring go with a ven
geance. In the six games plyed by hMm he
has hatted for .318. He made one double
and one triple, and only twenty runs have
been scored off him in his first six games.
The departure of Barrow from Detroit
was bound to come. He was not popular
with the player. and one of them said when
