three more hits with two out. but then
tightened up. and Anderson ended the game
with a fly to Hartzel.

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.

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

that they had the good lead and a rain

and lie bad to work a lame man yesterday
ami also a borrowed twirler. Jack
says he would like to have Hickman and

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

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
Vitson Won for Yankees.

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 game was won by a score of 4
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.

In a very gingery contest yesterday afternoon.
which lasted for seven Innings, First
defeated the Bethany team by the score of
4 to 3. First just barely squeezed out a victory,
as after the seventh the umpire railed
the game, declaring it too dark to work
another inning. A fielder's choice and a hit
gave the winners their last run. A fast
double play by the winners was the fielding
feature. The score:

Treasury Lads Shut Out Post Office
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
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.
The hole at short seems to have been
plugged by Post Office. McGraff. after slipping
up on his first chance, put up a good
game. The score:

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.

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.

JOHN BALL BRITISH
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland, June 1.?In the
final round of the tournament for the British
amateur golf championship yesterday
John Ball of the Royal Liverpool Club beat
A. C. 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. B. Melville, after a tie. In 18!>5.
Winning first In 1S88 and 18iH). both times
tercollegiate track and field meet were held
| here yesterday afternoon, and the results
were about the same as the Mopesters figured
out before the events were pulled off.
In the 100-yard dash Cartmell of Penn,
Read of Amherst, Gamble and Rulon-Miller
of Princeton all won their heats, with
three Yale men, Stevens, Butler and Burch,
and Bowman of Michigan, second men.
In the half-mile run Parsons of Yale,
Ramey of Michigan and Haskins of Penn
were winners of their respective heats, and
I the other men to qualify were Lewis. TuwnI
send. French and Chandler of Cornell. Coe
of Michigan and Baker of Swarthmore.
The UO-yard hurdle* brought forth a fine
with J. fc;. Lialulay as runner-up, Balls next
win was In 1802, when he beat H. H. 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
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. Since the war his gulfing
has been raggert, Dut during tne present
season his name appeared as the maker of
some low scoreB.

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,
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. . Play
was finally called on account of rain with
the score, two sets all. and 4?3 on the fifth
set in favor of Cake. Whltlock won the
