The parade or tlie 6triklng garment workers this morning was not the imposing demonstration hoped ror by President Ileiehcrs and the other labor leaders. Notwithstanding tlieir confident asser tions that between 5,000 and 7,000 btrikers would march in the procession witli tlie view of showing the btrength of the fclrikers to the public, there were less than 2,000 persons in the line when it passed the United Press offsets at Baltimore and Calvert streets. The Hue formed at Hurugari Hall, tlie headquarters of the 6 inkers, and moved west on Baltimore strec tat 10 o'clock, pre ceded by a band ofmusic, Anr traversing the district In which most or the clothing manufacturers do business, the paraders re turned to their headquarters, where a mass meeting was held.

DON IS DIXIE'S Hi I It Will Soon Swarm With Ball Clubs. i&DDEN CHANGES NOT GOOD Several Managers A ?r.s.e to Ooing Ton I'm Sduih Old-Timer "Well Cared For The Senator May Lead at tlie Starr Joyce and Crooks, In Training. Out of the South will now come the most of the news that will gladden the eye and please the ear of the baseball fans, says the Philadelphia Press. Several of the clubs are already in the Siatrs beyond Mason's anil. Dixon's line, and the others are ready to take possession of tin terri tory, where they will take the kinks out of their muscles. If there is imj occupation in which the employer caters more to his employes than that of baseball it would lake a lengthy exposure of the X rays to discover it. Tlu-se pampered sent of labor are to be envied for the good things in life which their pliable muscles have brought their way. Not only are they paid well in the coin of the country, but their hours are the shortest and nowadays, to be thoroughly up to the times, the magnates have to go down into their sinking rum! to produce the wherewithal to get them into condi tion .even before the time for their regular service to begin. ThN year eleven of the twelve clubs in the National League will take the journey to tlie land of cotton and early rruit, leaving behind them the Senators, who will have to get into condition on their big lot in Washington. It is not known whether the Senators are kept at home to see that none or the Presidential booms now being hatched at the Capital escape to parts unknown, or Congress is kept in session until the time comes Tor J. Larle Wagner to distribute passes among the members of the Senate and House. But the ball tosser& who are under Gus Schmelz's management will have to do without a trip to the South at someone's else expense. PHOUAMLL GRAND STAND LEAD. Even at that, though, it would not be surprising to see Gus Sehniclz'h crowd make a grand stand play for the lend when the season opens. The theory of spring tours look.-, well on paper, but the shrewd managers now get their men back to the cooler climate or the North long berore the championship race starts. The sudden change or air is as bud on a man's muscles a6 a switching orr rrom Sweiuer to the product or the American cheese factory is distasteful to his palate. The Charley horse and other muscular ailments are fashionable about that time, and the servi-cs of many a gocd man have been lost for several weeks by the change from the South to the Noilli a few days before opening day. The oldtimers are the most affected, while the young bloods are not likely to feel rheumatic pains in their limbs. As it is tlie oldtimers that the most depends on at the start, however, they are as well taken care of as a king's lirst born. Some of the managers are known to be averse to Southern trips and many now refrain from entering too far into that territory. SENA TO IIS GETTING INTO CO.VDITIOX. A letter to the sporting department or The Times rrom Andrew Jackson Plan ner, or the St. Lotus Sporting News, states that Jack Crooks is no louder Imp Tat and within a rouple of weeks will be down to weight. He has rescind his position as ticket seller at Chris' dinky track and is putting in his time t ranting under the memor-dup of Long John Ilealy. Neither of t hem believes in indoor exercise for a ball player and all their work is done in the open. They lake a hot water bath three imiesa week and on otherdays indulge in long walks. Healy goes through the motions or pitching over an hour each day with a ball attached tothe wall by a rubber hand. He increases his "speed" gradually and is sure that he will be fit to twirl for a man's life when the season opens. Crooks played handball to get himself in shape last winter, but you can't get him near an alley tins year. "1 was anxious to make a good showing on my reappearance in fast company." said Jack, "and I worked hard in a handball court for sixty days. CKOOKS DISLIKES HANDBALL. "Or course, 1 lost nesii ;uid I wasjollving myself with the idea that I would be right in It when we started our practice game in the South. I really felt sorry for the rest of tlie gang, and in my dreams I'll have visions or this Schmelz throwing bouquets at me and holding me up as a n.odel to others. "Well, when we goi to Charleston. Gus ordered us out ror a three-mile run. I was tickled for I wanted to show him how fit 1 was, and I'd gone broke that I'd be the Hrst man back. Recollections or that day are unpleasant. When I started I was a frisky as a two-year-old. but I broke dowu audit it hadn't been for a Iriendly street car, I'd have never got back to the hotel. "This experience taught me that a man can't tram himself by indoor work for out door exercise. I am doing track work every day at Sportsman's Park. That is I run from three to five miles around that sandy course and I feel all the betterforit." JOYCE IN TRAINING. Planner says Billie Joyce and Jack O'Con nor have been inseparable, companionssince January 1, when they began to fit them selves Tor the next campaign, but from now on until he starts for Washington, the Sena tor's captain will have to get a new running mate Tor O'Connor has gone to Hot Springs along with the other Spider-. Billie is hopeful and Jack is confident about the prospects of his team and each is pulling Tor the other to have a successful year. Both arc glad that Mike O'Connor. Jack's brother, will get a chance to gain fame on the diamond and Joyce savs that the youngster Is sure to make a success with the Dubuque club. "He's made of the rights! uff." taid Billie, "and with a little experience, he'll make the best of them hustle. Pat Tebeau wanted to give him a trial with the Spiders, but we persuaded him that it would be bet! error Mike, ir he began lower down and worked up. If Pat had known about the Port Wayne 'farm,' he'd probably have put Mike under the care of George Tebeau. who, I understand, will have chitrgc or that team." DIAMOND DUST. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Cartwrlght arrived in the city last, night. They will be at home during the baseball season at 1 701 Seventh street northwest. Captain Ed is looking as fat as a fiddle and says he is readv to play ball tomorrow. His looks verifv'the assertion. Ted Sullivan, owner and manager of the New Haven club, has secured the release of Jack Thornton, who was reserved by Norfolk, of the Virginia League. Thornton Is a Washington boy, and is one of the most promising of the young Inflclders in the profession. His position is at first base Thornton played first, on Sullivan's Dallas, Texas, club a part of last season and was sold to Norfolk. FOR FIFTY YEARS! MRS.

READY TO FACE THE FLAG Horses at Bemiings Are Advanced in Their Work. Several Stable-, nt tin Track and Many to Arrive Thl "Week. It is all life and activity at Denning these blustry March days. Anarmy of carpenters and helpers are at work on new buildings and repairing and remodeling the old ones, und dozens of hands are employed in arranging tlie machinery or a first-class race track for a regular meeting. Yesterday was a busy time with Superin tendent Gorman. It was pay day. He was engaged for a great while in liquidating the pay roll of the jockey club. In all, including the stable men, jockeys, palloping boys and trackmen, a hundred men are now employed at the track. The ladies' club house is nearly finished and isa pretty building wit hall conveniences. The old club house has been remodeled and rearranged until It is quite up to date. In fact, Benning Is almost new all over and former patrons will be both surprised and pleased when they make visits during the race meeting next month. Superintendent Gorman says the track is in excellent condition ready to race on at any moment. He says it is the best mile track in the country for early spring running. It never freezes to amount to anything and is of the proper composition to yield quickly to tliecareorthetraekmen. Upward or a half hundred thoroughbreds are stabled at the track at present and in a few days the number will be increased three fold. The stables in training at Gravescnd and Shecpshead will begin arriving litis week. The Belmont stable, winch runs under the name or "Blem'.on." has engaged thirty two stalls, and Johnnie McCafferty will bring twenty-four head after the loth inst. J. A. Bennett will stable elevui runners at the track tomorrow and William ("Bal timore") Jennings will locate fourteen bread and stake winners. Of the horMS at the track now Waiter Jennings or Washington has eleven: r. F. Clark of Shecpshead thiee: H. C. Hooper or Boton eight, and I'. A. Tselnrfeley of Washington rour. The horses or the above stables are In training every day and the majority of them are ready to face the starter's flag at a moment's notice. The Decker stable will ship eleven head from Gravescnd tomorrow and a huge number will follow in a feiv days. Jockey Slack, who I. a, a reputation as a hurdle rider.

IN TH15 KING. Joe Bateman, the well-known light weight boxer, stated to The Times last night that Hughey Lyons, who was treated at the Emergency Hospital Saturday for a broken nose, did not receive the injury at the manly art exhibition of his class of pupils in Georgetown last Fiiday evening. Lyons is a horseshoer by trade and his nasal appendage was contused by a re fractory equine who' disliked lo have nails driven into Ills hoofs. Joe says another ex hibition by his pupils will be given hi tlie classroom next Friday night. Pat ICaeily, who will box Tcckliam on the night or the 31 st Inst., was uptown yesterday looking like a four-time winner. Pat is down to 155 pounds, and says he is as hard as nails. He is in training at the Walkaway Club of Northeast Washington. The new Eureka Athletic Club, formerly theFuritan A. C, of Long Island City, will throw open its doors for the first time on Monday, March 10. Carpenters have been busy for some time in relitting and repair ing the clubhouse. The principal event on the opening night will be a twenty-round bout between Joe Walcott and Scott Col lins, better known as "Bright Eyes," of Dallas, Texas. The latter is considered a wondcri n the Southwest and ha. snever been defeated. lie has a twenty-round' draw with Jack Evcrhardt to his credit. Tom O'Rourkc has posted $500 with the Police Gazette to match Walcott against any light-weight, welter-weight or middle weight barring Bob Fitzsimmons, for $2,500 a side. The advance sale of boxes and reserved seats for the MeAuliffe-Lavigne six-round contest at Madison Square Garden next Wednesday evening gives every indication that the bout between the light-weight champion and the conqueror of Joe Wal cott will attract one of the largest gather ings that the garden has seated in years. The management has decided to give a short first-class program or five bouts three specials for decisions and two exhibi tions. Tills will put the McAulilfe-Lavigne 1 bout on about 10 o'clock. Tom O'Uourkc will try and get "Kid" MeParlland to meet Skelly for ten rounds at the opening of his show on April 1G. Steve O'Donnell says that IT tlie National Sporting Club will laise its offer to $1, 500 and expenses he will accept Owen Sullivan's challenge. Toe Butler, the Philadelphia middle weight, who is able to bother the Lest of them, has gone to Boston. Butler expects to make a match with George Godfrey. Billy Madden, who is now in London, is trying to arrange a match for Buticr with Dan Creeclon. "Voiing Griffo" will be seen for the first time since his lecent illness, in Pater son, N. J., on Thursday. March 12, when he will meet "Paddy" Kearney, a local man, and two otlicr good lightweights for four rounds each. There will he six other lx)uts including "Solly" Smith and a good local man. It will probably Jjc the best show ever given in Pateron and a gcod many New 1'orkers will go toscc if Griffo retains his old time form. Speedy Skater Jumped Ahead al the Turn.

A call meeting of the Departmental Baseball League was held in the rooms of the Washington Light Infantry last night. The meeting was for the purpose of tak ing steps to reorganize the league for the season of '90. There were present: Mr. Sousa. president of the league last year; Mr. Hazen, vice president; and Mr. Fisher, secretary. The delegates from clubs desiring mem bership were: Messrs. House and McOube, W. L. I.; Fisher and Hazcn, District Com missioners; Miller. McCauley and McQuirk, Bureau of Printing and Engraving; Kcllar, Treasury; Johnson and Kirkpntrick, Fort Myer; and Mr. Both, of the Canterbury Athletic Club. The delegates expressed their confidence in a prosperous season for amateur baseball and said their respective organizations would enter the league rally able to carry out a schedule and play the season through. A new rule was adopted, allowing de partmental clubs to go outside of their offices toselecttwo or three capable players to strengthen their teams. This rule will result in the clubs being more evenly matched and. as a conse quence, close scoies will bo prevalent. At the next meeting of the league, on March 10, a complete organization will be errectcd. President Sousa is very enthusiastic and FROM Alter trying all kinds of mid:cinc and con sulting many physicians, without receiving any permanent relier, we determined to try the I. C.

Sealing Treaty So Modified a to Ho I'rnetleully Nullified. Ottawa. March 9. Much Indignation has been called out here by the receipt of official advices indicating the practical rejection by the United States of tlie treaty to provide a commission to assess damages for alleged seizuie of Canadian sealers ns provided lor in the award of the Paris tribunal. Government officials are reticent as to the exact facts, but it is known that the proposed treaty as signed by the British ambassador, representing Canada, and Secretary Olney, representing the United States, lias been so modified by the United States Senate that it has been virtually nullified and acceptance of the proposed changes by Great Britain and the Canadian authorities is rendered impossible. It Is asserted that even the wording of quotations taken from the award of the Tarls tribunal has been changed by the amendments inserted in the treaty by the United States Senate. The whole in strument therefore falls to the ground and the owners or the Canadian sealers who were tendered $-125,000 as compen sation by the late Secretary Greshani may have to wait years berore they receive any compensation whatsoever.

There is danger in the wharves. A repetition of the calamity which oc curred at North Point, near Baltimore, on a July day some years ago, when a party or excursionists were ou pleasure bent, and who went home to mourn, is said to be threatened at the water front or this city. Last month the water in the Potomac was so very low that a thorough ex amination or the wharves was made practi cably possible as to completeness and thoroughness, than ror some years prev viously. Sucn an examination was made by John II. Cooper, inspector or hulls, and hi- as sistants. From the explanation, tlie r.ut became patent that the majority of the wooden wharves at the water front .ire "in a very bad condition," to quote the Inspector literally. More particularly and etces-ively i this true in regard to the Seventh street and the one adjoining, the under parts of which are terribly decayed and tutally unsafe. The report of the Inspector to the super vising inspector of steam vessels. Gen. James A. Dumont, has just been made puniic, and the inspector says that in his judgment the two wharves particularly mentioned and, in fact, all the wooden wharves on the water front, should either be condemned or measures taken to have them put in safe condition. The fact that the Seventh street wharf is used so much in summer by excursion ists embarking on steamer Is pointed out as one of the main features of a general reason why repairs should be made im mediately. The timbers in the wharves were put in years ago. They have been water soaked and susceptible to all the decaying In fluences ever since, and as a reult have gradually rotted away until now they are in a most dangerous condition. The result or the report will most prob ably be the ordering or new wharf build ing in some portions and extensive re pairs in others. HATH EH TOO EFFUSIVE.
