Up to the fifth inning the Chicagos only
made one hit off Mercer.
New York and St. Louis are tied in
eleventh place, with .333.
It looks now as if the Senators would
capture a couple from Chicago.
Chicago scored their first run in the
sixth on Lange's two-bagger and Reillj's
single to center.
Capt. Jovee made a clean steal or peer nd
in the eighth and scored on Cartwright's
pretty tingle to center.
"Gentle Little Willie" Laiige was the
only Colt who was able to successfully
solve Mercer's mysteries.
Mercer made the first error for the Sen
ators but it amounted to nothing as the
Colts did not score in the inning.
Dahlen's error in the seventh on Cart
wright's grounder was costly. Abbey aud
Belbach scored on the mlsplay.

We only figured on one from Chicago,
Cant. Jovee. but. of course, if you can
grab a couple, or all three games, it will
be all right all right.
To climb into the first division on a hard
trip away from home is double credit to
Capt, Joyce and his men. Washington is
proud of its ball club this season.
The Senators are in the first division.
It Is hoped that they will not get dizzy
In their new and, to them, strange sur
roundings and fall off the ladder.
Griffith, whom the Senators pounded so
hard yesterday, was a stumbling block to
them last season, as also was Terry, who
will probably pitch against them today.
Cart wright is hitting the ball hard and
timely. And our Jriend, "Piano Legs,"
Is plaving the same steady game at lirst
base that made him famous in '94 and '95.
Good for the Colonels'. They put the
kobosh all over the arrogant Orioles in a
way that -won them applause from one
end oi the League circuit to the other.
The Senators' percentage a jeur ago
today was .300 tJ games won; 14- lost.
Quite a difference between those figures
and .519, which represents their stand
lug this morning.
When it was announced at Kernan's yes
terday mat the plucky Colonels had shut
out Baltimore there was a roar and tumult
equal to that when the operator stated
that Selbach hud made his second three
base hit at Chicago.
The Baltimores haye sent Doyle and
Clarion back to Oysterland, and they will
uotjoin the team again until the next East
ern series. Dojie's. injured ankle is bother
ing him, and there are pitchers enough on
the trip without Clarkson.
Jim McGulre was the only Senator not
to get a hit off Griffith. Jim smote the
Spalding right on the snoot, but was
unlucky in landing it safe. Hut there
are other days ajcoming, aud the "Old Re
liable" will be found doing business at
the old stand.
There are more paragraphs going the
rounds of the papers of the League about
the Senators than any other club. The
rejuvenation' of tho club under Joyce
has put all the pencils a pushing. This
induces the remark, "Noihiug succeeds
Varney Anderton will hardly have any
trouble in re-engaging with a National
League club. lie would materially
strengthen scleral teams that are now
losing nearly every game on account of
weakness in the pitcher's box. Either
New York or St. Loui- should lose no time
in doing business with the clever twirlcr.
In the light of McDermott letting Balti
more down with two hits yesterdny, per
haps we have no kick coming on the rain
which prevented the Senators from play
ing in Lou.sWUe Tuesday and Wednesday.
McDermott would have been in the box
and hi:- great work against the champions
indicates that he is fit to put any club to
Tom Brown is so fast on his feet that
he can rail down between liases and then
score in a pinch. Yesterday he was at
third and started home on Joyce's drive
to Everett. He fell down about middlo
way while Klttndge and Everett were
trying to tag him and as Kittridge ran
over liim he sprang to his feet and beat
them all to the plate. It was sensatioual
base-running and won the applause of the
"Players may say that it don't hurt for
the people to yell 'take him out,' " says
Preo Clarke, the fast Louisville outfielder,
"but I I ell j ou It does. I have only ex
perienced it a couple of times, but I tell
you it hurts. A player may be doiug his
best and make errors right along, because
the balls bound wrong or something, and
when the ieoplc yell 'take him, out! take
him out." it Just knocks him all tp pieces,
and he doesn't know there he is. The spec
tators don't always understand why a
ball plajcr makes errors."
Enquirer In answer to your query, will
state that Al Maul was the champion bats
man of two leagues in 1887 the Southern
aud National. Maul led the Southern with
a percentage or .484 and topped the
National League list with .450. Anson
was next with .421. As Maul only played
16 games to Anson's 122 the latter was
accorded the honor or champion bats
mati. Maul was with the Nashville club
or the Southern, and with Philadelphia of
theNational League, in 1887. He pitched
for Nashville the first part of the season
and was sold to Philadelphia for $2,000.
Tom Kinslow of this city will play the
remainder of tho season with the Louis
ville Club, and will join the Colonels at
New York on the 30th instant. When
seen yesterday afternoon, Tom had on a
red sweater and golf cap, and was other
wise dressed in training attire.
"Yes," he said, in reply to The Times
man's Inquiry, "1 will go with Louisville,
though I have not yet signed a contract.
But Manager McGunnlgle and I will have
no .trouble at all in coming to terms.
Mac is my warm, personal friend, and I
would go out of my way a long distance
to do him a favor or any kind. He
evidenced his confidence in me, and his
appreciation of my ball playing qualifi
cations, by offering me a situation the
minute, you might say, that he took charge
of the Louisvilles. In return Tor his
friendship I shall attempt to give him
the best service or my career. Over and
above my natural inclination to want to
play good ball, I want to aid McGuunigle
In the hard task be has before him. There
Is good material In the Louisville club,
and it will be my object and pleasure to
develop it so far as I am able. For my
self I will say I never caught a poor
Sitcher in my life. They might have
een wild and erratic when I took hold
or them, but my success with Daub. Stein.
Kennedy, Hawley, Killen, and others I
could mention, bears me out in the asser
tion. No pitcher ever proved an absolute
failure with mo catching him. I hope
to be equally as successful with the Louis
ville staff of young twirlers, not only
for my own sake, but for McGunnigle's as
well. I shall commence real hard training
tomorrow, and will keep at it until I
think I am in fit condition. Then-1
will go in and work as I never worked
before with a mask and glove."

ANOTHER VIEW OF IT.
Errors Plenty on Both Sides, But
Chicago's "Were Costly.
(Special to The Times.)
Chicago, May 21. Won't somebody
please go and buy your Uncle An6on a bull
A public as patient as a spring lamb
in a snowstorm, and as long-suffering an
a man standing on his head with a boil
where his hair parts, will rorgive an
occasional beating.but when tothe crushing
burden of two dereats from the despised
men from Gotham is added another by
the Senators, patience becomes a felony.
Washington won, but they were hardly
to blame- They made as many errors as
the Colts, but they were of the harmless
funny sort, which areapplauded by laughter
instead of groans. The Chicago's errors
were made with the deliberate malevolence
or a small boy who has been whipped
by his father. They occurred at the
critical points of the game as though they
had been carefully picked out berorehand.
Dahlen played the worst game within
tho memory of Jim Hart's dog, and the
dog is older than Arlie Latham's Jokes.
Bug juice was the most charitable reasou
assigned for his interference with the game.
The play which passed within reach of
him without being spoiled was as lucky
as the man who dodged the avenging wrath
of a disappointed brickbat.
Truby is still in the hospital but the
game Reilly put up at second was as
superior to his attempt of the day before
as a ten-case note is better than a promise
to pay from a deceased fruit peddler.
MERCER MADE A MUFF.
The funniest error of the game was
Mercer's muff of a pop up in the seventh
Inning. It was as easy as sleep in a
millionaire's bed, and Winnie dropped It so
neatly that tho ball never knew how near
it had beentoadeathaswelldeservedas the
man who tellsthestory aboutthcbalkymule
and kicks bis interested auditor in the same
way the mule was kicked. DeMontreviHe
made two errors but they were harmless
and the only really bad one was McGuire's
throw to second.
The Colts played a game of ball thatcaused
every spectator who was not a Washington
rooter to weep the tears of a broken hope.
The error column shows but flvemlsplays.
There were at "least twice 'that many,
which made the scorers wish t$-t a change
In the rules that they might chalk them
down. The main portion of the Senators'
runs were bunched in two innings, but
CAN BE CURED.

At the same time Washington bunched
its hits, Chicago bunched Its errors. They
seemed to work together as neatly as a
The Colts richly deserved their defeat.
For their sake the score bhould have been
larger. In the firth Mercer opened with a
single to center, but was caught in an at
tempt to steal second. Brown slugged
a three-bagger against the back fence.
Joyce h ltto Reilly.wlio.inanattempttocat ch
Brown at the plate, threw so high that
Kittridge could not have gotten it "with a
ladder, and, of course, Brown scored.
SELUACH'S LONG THREE-BAGGER.
Selbach tripled to left and scored on
Cartwright's single. CartAvright and Mc
Gulre went out on the only double play
the Colts made. In the seventh inning.
Joyce opened the appearance of the entire
Senatorial company. He let one of Grif
fith's slow ones strike him on the leg.
When Abbey hit the ball, Dahlen hap
pened to remember a new feature or Ins
jag. and let the ball go by. Selbach singled
and Joyce scored.
Cartwrlght donated another one, al
lowing Abbey and Selbach to tally. Mc
Gulre flew out to Flynn. and Rogers
scored Cartwrlght with a double, which
Dahlen transformed into a triple. De
MontreviHe duplicated the tilt, scoring the
runner. Mercer went out to Decker, and
Brown failed to reach first.
The Colts didn't rind Mercer until rhe
eighth. In that inning they made five hits
and three runs, three of the hits being two
baggers. In the last inning they made two
more hits, and two runs.
This makes the score look better, but
there was no hope for a Chicago victory
after the fifth.
Just when the Colts will crawl out of
the swamp of destitution where they
are living now, nobody knows. The score:

Original Evidence m the Hands

MORE AFFIDAVITS Flt-ED
They Are Suid to Substantiate TIiomo
Now In Churges Regarding -Mnnd
LHIey Corroborated by a Young
Lady Channel Through Which tho
Investigation Will Bo Made.
The examination of the evidence sub
mitted for an investigation of the manage
ment of the District Jail is progressing
From thief Justice Bingham the state
ments passed into the hands of the other
justices and already Judge McComas has
read' them carefully. He is anxious that
an Investigation of the matter begin at
once and from present Indications it looks
as though rapid progress will be made in
In spite of Warden Leonard's denials
that a female prisoner wasallowed tocarry
the keys of the female ward und at times
to lock up prisoners, additional statements
came to light yesterday tending to verify
those of tiie ex-prisoners.
FEMALE TRUSTY CARRIED THE KEYS.
Miss Florence Russell, a young lady who
lives at No. 429 Eleventh street north
west, and whose aunt, Mrs. Baden, is an ex
matron at the jail, told The Times that she
knew positively that Maud Lllley had car'
ried the keys of the female ward. Shesald:
"One day in the early part of March 1
went to the jail In company with Mrs.
Baden. Wc went to her, room in the
womun's ward and I there saw Maud
Lllley holding in her hand a bunch of
keys, which I recognized as the jail keys.
I had ofteii seen them before.
"I asked my aunt if the trusty girls were
allowed to carry the keys nnd she relied
that she had never allowed them to &o so.
Mrs. Baden was not then matron and when
I saw the girl I thought from her actions
that she must be the new matron."
Owing to the criticism of the evidence
not ail being verified by oath, Mr. Cook
was engaged yesterdayln having the state
ments sworn to and will re-f lie them today.
He says since the filing of the evidence ha
has come In possession of corroborative
Information which is more important than
that heretofore filed.
JUSTICES WHO WILL INVESTIGATE.
The last investigation or the District
jail, made in response to a complaint, was
conducted by Col. Cecil Glay, of the De
partment of Justice, at the requestor an
Englishman, who never appeared to press
At that time every prisoner was closely
questioned, and, according to statements
published, Col. Clay was very much sur
prised when one prisoner told him that
he had only beeu allowed ten minutes
at a time for exercise. Col. Clay in
formed him that the rules gave him an
hour for exercise arter each meal, and
that he should demand au hour and protest
until he got it.
It is the opinion of the Department of
Justice that the expected investigation
will not be made through that orfice, as
it bad not been originally filed there.
In the Burke inestigation the complaints
came through the Department of Justice
and the examination followed in the same
channel. In the present instance it will
pass through the hands of Chief Justice
Bingham and Associate Justices Bradley,
McComas, Cole, Cox, and Haguer.

MYSTERY IN BLINDNESS.
Told by a Man Who Is Dlnif elf Color
Xeic Yurk World.
"I'm color blind," said the man to the
policeman, who had Just told him to take
the next green car.
"Then you ought to get a dog," retorted
This may have been smart, from an
official point of view, but it rcmainds me of
the fact that a- very large proportion of
men are more or less color blind, and that
some are absolutely so. Whether the defect
is a natural one or whether it is a quality
of ignorance that might have teen avoided
by proper culture, I have never seen satis
factorily explained. I myself cannot dis
tinguish green from blue at night, nor tell
certain shades of red from brown, or blue
from purple at any hour of the day.
One of the most singular things Is at
least to me thutthe absence of the knowl
edge of color does not necessarily destroy,
or even weaken, the Judgment of harmony
In colors. I have seen the experiment tried
at the water color exhibition, where a man
practically absolutely color blind, and al
most as totally ignorant of pictures, was
able to pick out with as much accuracy as
any artist present the best pictures of the
great and varied display. Inharmonious
colors in dress are as sharply ofrensive to
my eyes as ir I actually knew the names
ot them and could distinguish them. I wish
some expert would enlighten us upon this
subtlesuodi vision orasense.

Insurance Against Twins.
What worse domestic calamity can be
fall a poor man's home than the advent of

prospects of the concern. As a financial I

Cnuxrht a 350-Pound Shark.
Some soldiers at Tort Blair a little time
ago captured a shark weighing 350 pounds,
aim nine feet ten inches long, with a
girth of five feet three inches. The shark
anpears to have given Its captors a lot of
trouble, towing the boat In which they
were at work all over tbe harbor for nearly
two hours. The captain and some officers
of the lphin6tone went to the soldiers'
assistance and speared the monster, which
furiously struck at the boat with its tail
in the last struggle, nearly causing it to
upset. When cut open two bullock's horns,
ten inches long, with teeth and several
large bones, wero found. The shark is
