was shot yesterday. All of the teams did
not finish at l,00?)-yard range at sundown
Thursday evening and the match was continued
until yesterday. The national match
was immediately followed by the national

conditions as in the team match. In this

Is greater than any year since the national

present from the District will be entered

from all over the country. Ideal weather
conditions prevail and everything is moving
along very satisfactorily.
According to the present plan of Mai.

will start for home this evening about

Telegraphic communication with the outside

The regular army has taken a hand in the

from here, where the wires connect with a
switchboard. The men are prepared to
shoot any intruder caught in the act of

The second of the national team match
opened with bright weather conditions, with
a slight haze hovering over the range. A
puffy wind was blowing from the southeast
at the rate of four miles an hour. As the
day progressed conditions improved and
high scoring was a feature of the day.'
Over two thousand riflemen are participating
in the matches this week. The largest
attendance was last week during the
matches of the National Rifle Association of
America and the Ohio State Rifle Association,
when over 15,500 riflemen participated
In shooting contests.
The conditions for shooting in the skirmish
run were excellent. The light on the
targets was just bright enough for the
shooters, the overhanging clouds making the
n?ht ?teadv and not glaring to the eyes.
The wind was blowing from the northeast
about four miles an Jjour. There was no
mirage to speak of and the riflemen had
everything in their favor.
The team from Ohio headed tlie fortyeight
teams with the top-notch score of
907, thirty-four points above the cavalry
team of the army. The team from the District
of Columbia finished in twenty-first
place, with a total score of 7<>7, exactly 200
points below the leaders at this stage of the
District Boys' Game Fight.
At the 000-yard stage the District boys
put up a game fight and stood their ground
well In comparison with the other teams. It
was the first match of the day and the contest
proved a most exciting one. Sergt.
Ollie M. Schriver was high man again at
this distance, scoring 46 out of a possible 50.
His nearest competitors were Relchelderfer,
Bischoff and Holt, each with 45.
The scores were as rouows: acnriver,
Reichelderfer, 45; Holt, 45; Blschoff, 45;
Cookson. 44; Alderman, 44; Dennlson, 43;
Heldenrich, 41; Groome, 41; Robblns, 41;
Summers, 40; McAnally, 39; total, 514.
At the conclusion of firing at the 600-yard
stage the men proceeded to the 800 and
1.000 yard ranges. The total score of the
District up to and including this stage of
the match is 2.247.
Sergt. Ollle M. Schriver led the District
boys In the skirmish run, with a score of

with 8) points in his favor. The scores
of the District men in the skirmish run were
as follows; Schriver, TO; Cookson, 89; Robbins,
65; McAnally, 65; Holt, 65; Heidenrelch.
57; Summers, 56; Alderman, 64;
Qroome, 53; Reichelderfer, 52; Dennlson, 47;
BlschotC, 45; total, 707.
When the District man faced the ^0-yard
range the light on the targets remained
about the same, with a four-mile breeze
blowing steadily across the range. The
boys evidently got the "buck," as they fell
below their average in rapld-flre work.
Eacft man was allowed ten shots at this
distance. Lieut. Col. L. H. Relchelderfer
and MaJ. A. P. Bobbins were high men
with 49 out of a possible 150.

The team followed uo work at rapid fire
by shooting at the same distance, slow fire,
with two sighting shots and ten for record.
While the scoring was not as good as at
the rapid fire, the shooting was an improvement
over last year. Last year the team
scored 500 points, while this year they
reached 511. eleven points to the good.
The scores of the District men at 200

At the 200-yard stage, slow fire, Lieut.
Ralph Alderman led the District contingent
by three points over his nearest competitor.
The District is eighty-nine points ahead '
of the sctfre made by the team in the three
stages of the 200-yard snoot a year ago at
Sea Girt in the same match. While the
team lost eight points in the rapid-fire
work at 200 yards, this did not make the
men feel downcast, and when they started
shooting at slow Are, 200 yards, they were
determined to improve in their work. As a
result of that determination they scored
eleven points over a year ago, leaving them
a net gain of three points, which added to
the gain of eighty-six points made in the
skirmish run as compared with last year
gave them a total net gain of eighty-nine
points. This more than encouraged the

advantage of the night half rates, for directly
after midnight?thai is, at 12:01 a.m.,
or a few seconds earlier, If possible?the
night rates will become the same as the
day rates, by order of the Bell and affiliated
companies, which met In New York
last week and decided on the change.
On the immediate lines of the Chesapeake
and Potomac Company t'he difference will
not be so noticeable, for Its chief long-distance
line is between Washington and Baltimore.
For service on that line the day
rate for three minutes' use Is 30 cents and
the night rate 25. Hereafter the night rate
will be 30 cents. But the American Telephone
and Telegraph Company owns the
other long-distance lines patronized largely
by Chesapeake and Potomac subscribers.
On those lines the night rates after C p.m.
have been exactly half of the day rates.
After midnight tonight they will be equal
to the day rates.
This action, it was explained at the office
of the Chesapeake and Potomac Tele
phone Company, was made necessary by
the fact that most persons having occasion
to make long-distance calls, waited until 6
o'clock In the evening when the night rate
went Into effect. The result was that calls
became so numerous between 6 and ? o'clock
that frequently the business could not be
CONVICT TO SUE STATE.
Lost Hand In Elmlra Reformatory and
NEW YORK, August 31.?When ex-con
vlct John Joyce, who had lost four lingers
running a planing machine at Sing Sing
prison, died last Sunday the plan of his
lawyer, Joseph Shay of 300 Broadway, to
discover how far the state is liable for InJury
to its wards apparently went to pieces.
But yesterday a new client wl$h the same
sort of a case turned up and Shay will go
ahead with a suit for 125,000.
The client is James Manning, who was
sentenced to Elmira reformatory by Justice
Gildersleeve in 1886. He says that two days
after he reached Elmira he was compelled
to go to work with a circular saw and thut
within the first five minutes he lost his left
hand. yvms an RhsnJutA nnvipfl nt that
kind of a job, he tells the lawyer.
"Up to that time arid since my discharge
my character will be found to be excellent,"
Manning writes, "although I find It very
hard to get along. As they reformed me
they deformed me also."
Lawyer Shay will take the case to the
court of claims. He says that the point
Involved has never been ruled upon.
KAISER, UNHORSED, WILL TREAT
Will Furnish "Bowie" for the Army
Corps, According to Ancient Usage.
BERLIN, August 31.?The kaiser's experience
the other day, when he fell from his
horse during the Hanover maneuvers, entailed
a quaint, self-imposed penalty.
It appears to have been a custom, dating
from the time of Frederick the Great, that
an officer unhorsed during a parade must
set up for his comrades a copious quantity
of a German drink called bowle, which Is
a species of hock cup. The kaiser apparently
recalled the custom almost before he
touched the ground, for his flrst words to
his aid were:
"This will be a costly amusement. I
have to pay for a glass of bowle for every
man in the army corps."
It is understood that the kaiser is going
to pay the score.
