Hughes worked until the *nd ti e sixth inning, the Athletics having rapred him for ten hits and scored th?'.r eight runs during that time, and then t'a- fatten went on the rubber and stopped further proceedings in the batting mill run-scoring line. Tlie great southpaw. Plank, was on tlie rubber for the Athletics, and. as usual, he was a big puzzle to the Nationals, allowing liut three hits in eight innings. In the final Inning Flank became careless ami allowed three more hits with two out. but then tightened up. and Anderson ended the game with a fly to Hartzel. Hughes opened up splendidly in the first Inning, and as l'lank did the same it looked as though the spectators were in for a treat in the way of a hard-fought contest. But the beginning of the end came In the second, and from that time nn It was only h question of how many. With two down In the second, Si-hreck singled to center and Hughes made the mistake of passing Oldring and laying for Knight, a proverbially poor hitter. This time Knight soaked out a long single to center, scoring Schreck. and ( Kdring also scored, as Jones throw to the plate bounded over Blankenship s head tind rolled to the grandstand. With those two talli-s to their credit the Athletics apparently bad the game won. with Plank In Ifood cjndltlon.

COMMENTS ON THE GAME. The Nationals had a different look yesterday afternoon in comparison with their showing in all their Barnes against New York. Against the Highlanders the local pit< i:.'is di i line work, while yesterday Tom Hughes was off his stride and, of course, ti. it made the rest of ihe team look punky. It was a different aggregation just as soon as Case Patten went on the tiring line, as the g!<;it southpaw was able to fool the VPIITOIIIK UaiBUJCIl, mniiii Uirunj uvuivhstrati d the commanding part played by the twlrlers in all the games. Charley Jones pot only one hit yesterday, but it was a "peacherino" and scored the Nationals' first tally. Jones is given an error for liis throw iiome to head off Oldring in the second inning, but he will have the satisfaction of knowing that it will not be sent to President Johnson, as the official scorer declared he wouldn't stand for a player being punished for trying to make a difficult play. Centerfi* Ider Oldring hasn't been hitting the ball very hard this spring, but at that lie is an improvement over Lord, and evidently had Hughes' measure yesterday. He worked the tall fellow for a base on balls, soaked out a clean single in the fourth that scored a run. and then in the sixth Hughes hit him with the ball. Patten had Oldring >ized up right with a high curve, as he went out on a punky roller to Altizer. W'lion Pvr?cc tont hie rnllor i^nwn fro TT.irfV Davis in the ninth inning, it looked very much as if the first baseman wanted his old chief to have a hit. as he didn't "chuck" the ball to I'lank. who had covered the bag. until Lave was safe on first. The move doubtless nettled Flank, as he is proud of his record, j-nd when he went back into the Ixix he simply tossed them up to Hickman and Altizer, who drove out slnglt s It was lucky for the Athletics that they had the good lead and a rain was coming on, as there is no telling howfar Plank would have gone with his "grouch." Manager Jack Dunn of the Baltimore club >? a.^ Ill III'.- Ill* III IS 1IJI.>I mug IU occ .HUiiUftVi Cantillon about securing one or more players. The Orioles are in a terrible condition on account of several men being sick or injured. and lie bad to work a lame man yesterday ami also a borrowed twirler. Jack says he would like to have Hickman and Schlafly and will pay as much as any one else for the players. If Hickman is let go, Baltimore is the best place in the country for him. as he will be near his business. Both he and "Schat" should more than make good in the Eastern League, as they van i > 11 ic^ i nc uan un inc uca v ui inmcia, and those are the sort of players Dunn needs just now. The work of Frank Kltson yesterday for New York against the Bostons illustrates how uncertain are ball players. Kltson was In wrong here, for what reason no one seems to know, and he certainly was no good to the team. Manager Cantillon always had trouble getting him to work, and the only way he could handle him was to tell him he had to i>itoh and then walk away before he had time to say he wasn't feeling good or his arm was sore. Kitson may like New York better, but the chances are that he will go quite a while on the work he did yesterday. Perhaps the weather bureau will furnish us with something like respectable weather by Monday, and if it does the Washingtons and Athletics will try to get a couple of games out of the way by playing a doubleheader. The first game will start promptly at 2 o'clock and the second game about fifteen minutes after the first has been finished. Manager Mack snid he would probably work the eccentric Waddell and Coombs in the two games, while Manager Cantillon will probably send out Case Patten and his other left-hander, Graham. With anything like good weather the fans should have an afternoon of great sport, as the Nationals are just about due to trim the Quakers, although they are "hoodoos" to the local aggregation. Vitson Won for Yankees. BOSTON, June 1.?Frank Kitson, who only Thursday was bought from Washington by Clark Griffith, pitched his first game for the New York Highlanders team yesterday and won It, although it looked m the first inning as if he was In for a beating The game was won by a score of 4 to 1. Both Winter and Kitson pttehed good ball, but the Boston players, including Winter himself, lacked snap and ginger.. Neither team could score until the sixth Inning, although Boston had a good chance in the first, when Sullivan, the first man up. led off with a doable. Parent was given his base on hulls, and UnglaUb sacrificed. Kitson pulled himself together, however, and the next two men were easy outs. The score: Boston. R H O A K New York.

Treasury Lads Shut Out Post Office Team. Treasury and Post Office, neither of which had lost a same In the Departmental League, clashed yesterday and the Money Counters took the measure of the Mail Men 2 to 0. Having started Post Office on the way to its first defeat by passing McCarthy in the first inning. Torney laid down a neat sacrifice . Lord popped up a high one back of short. Both McGrafC and Bacon tried for tt and the sphere fell from Bacon's hands. McCarthy counting. Lord stole second. Fulcher then dumped the ball in front of the plate. Lord intentionally overran third, drew the throw and shot home ahead of the throw to get him at -the plate. It was heady and daring base running. Donaldson's curves, especially his yardwide outshoots. had the losers guessing the entire route. Kraft getting the only single In the seventh on a line drive to left. Just a few inches too low for Torney to reach. Honing was in the same good form that won two games for Post Office, except that lie was a trifle wild, passing five, McCarthy getting three and Torney the other two. He was tapped for tnre<? safeties in the ninth, but they didn't count, as the drizzle which had been intermittent throughout the game became the real thing and the umpire called the game after Treasury had scored two more runs and Post Office had two men down. Bacon made a beauty catch ofT McCarthy in the seventh, getting the ball an Inch from the ground after a hard run. Vic Blelaski, after falling down on an easy chance in the same Inning, made a sensational catch of Wahler's liner and doubled up Fenton at first.

YANKEE GIRL'S GREAT FINISH AT RFI MDNT NEW YORK, June 1.?In a most sensational finish after running a greater part of the way in the ruck, C. K. Ellison's Yankee Girl, by Sir Dixon, won the Ladies' stakes, for three-year-old fillies, one mile, at Belmont Park yesterday afternoon. Yankee Girl, who won the City Park Derby last winter at New Orleans, was backed from 0 to 1 down to 13 to 5. James R. Keene's Court Dress, by Disguise, who was the best two-year-old hlly last season, was ? lukewarm favorite, going back in the bet ting from even money to (i to 5. while R. T. Wilson, jr.'s Adoration was also in demand at 14 to 3. Miller rushed Court Dress to the front when the barrier went up, attended by Adoration. Yankee Girl, slow to begin, dropped out of it in the run up the back stretch and seemed to be beaten. But Radtke gradually made up Jiia ground, until at the head . i the stretch he had moved up into thiiu place. At that stage Court Dress was lead nit, !>y a length and a half, with Adoration si. lengths in front of Yankee Uirl. But Radt. then sat down to ride in earnest, with i :e result that Yankee Uirl, by leaps and bounds, rushed up to the pacemakers, who were tiring rapidly. Court Dress, who was evidently sh<jrt. soon stopped, and Adoration, under a hard drive, looked the winner at the sixteenth pole. But Yankee Girl, running lasier ana stronger man ever, was irresistible, and won the race, .going away, by half a length in 1.40 3-5. Adoration had two lengths over Court Dress. Ironsides Neglected. H. P. Whitney's Ironsides, neglected at 12 to 1, made all the pace in the handicap at a mile and a sixteenth, and won easily by a length from J. W. Fuller's Tokalon, l? to 5 favorite, who got a weak ride from Hooker, yet took the measure of Mr. Keene's Philander, 11 to 5, by a length. The latter also received poor handling from Miller, who had been shut off several times. The race was run In 1.47. Mr. Keene's Grimaldl, 15 to 20 favorite, ran off with the first race, at seven furlongs. He was galloping at the wire, where he beat the Oneck stable's Klamesha, 17 to 10, by four lengths, in 1.2(1 rtat. Marster, 10 to 1, was a poor third. The finish of the second race, for twoyear-olds, four and a half furlongs, was so close that only the judges could place the tlrst three.

Palmer, also an Englishman, by 6 un onH A tn nl a v Palmer is unknown here, but Johnny Ball is one of the world's heroes on the links. This Is the sixth time Ball has won the amateur championship, and, coupled with the prominence until the closing rounds of H. H. Hilton, would indicate that the old guard have little to fear from any of the youngsters?in brief, the time is ripe for a grand young golfer to arrive. Ball's preeminence in winnings Is the more remarkable because no other amateur has ever won more than twice. Those to do so have been Horace Hutchinson, In 188?J and 1887, the first years it was played; J. E. Lald'.ay, the late F. G. Tait and H. H. Hilton. Ball was runner-up in 1887 to Hutchinson and to L.

Hilton by 3 and 1 at Sandwich. Two years later Ball gained his fourth win at Hoylake, beating Mure Fergusson by 1 up. The next year came his tie with Belfour-Melvllle, to : wtfom he lost on the play-oflf. The fifth , victory was In 1800, the final having been extended to thirty-six holes in 1806, Ball tying with Talt and winning a thirty-eight hole match. In 1SOO Ball won the open championship. In that year holding the double crown. Ball went to the Boer war as an officer of volunteers and received a parting gift of a handsome charger and equipment from his golfing friends.

MIDDLE STATES TENNIS TOURNAMENT Franklin Geoghegan defeated Homer Dels upon the courts of the Bachelors' Tennis Club, M street northwest near Connecticut avenue, In the finals of the middle Atlantic states tennis tournament yester aay arternoon Dy u?l, 0?2 and tt?i. it was thought by many of the friends of Dels that after hia defeats of Glazebrook, llackett and Parkea that lie was In good shape to make Geoghegan do some tall playing If he was to meet Conrad Doyle In the final for the championship, but hi this they were mistaken, for at the beginning of the match it could plainly be seen that Geoghegan's work was at the top notch, and that he would play his opponent to a standstill. Geoghegan with his lightning returns at the net and the rear field from the start proved too much for Deis, who lacked the speed necessary to compel his opponent to yield a point. After the first set Deis seemed to get a bit wise as to Geoghegan's play, but could only make one point better than the first. In the third he did much better and made four points, while Geoghegan was making six. The final for the championship, it Is stated, will probably not be played today on account of the wet grounds. Doyle will doubtless have to defend his title Monday. Miss Wimer in the final round of the ladies' singles defeated Miss Evans of Richmond. The score was U?7 and 6?2. Dels and Geoghegan began the finals In the men's doubles with Doyle and Doyle, but with the score 3?2 in their favor wertT" compelled to stop on account of rain. In the second round of the men's doubles, Hills and Parkes beat d'Adhemar and Bernsdorff, 0?1, 0?3. In the semifinals Doyle and Doyle beat Hills and Parkes, 6?3, 3?0, 6-1. The other match in the semi-finals of I he men's doubles was won by Geoghegan and Deis, who beat Glazebrook and Davidson, 6-3, 6-3. The mixed doubles were lyrought to the final round. Miss Doyle and Mr. C. Doyle winning from Mrs. Newbold and Dr. Glazebrook. 6?2, 7?o. and Miss Wimer and Mr Ballenger winning from Miss Lincoln and Mr. Lincoln, 6?0, 6?2. Miss Doyle and Mr. Doyle will meet Miss wimer and Mr. Ballenger In the finals. W'hltlock and Cake had a hard match in the finals of the men's consolation. .
