HULED OFF AT ST. LOUIS He It, Now Dohitf a Thrifty BuhI ncss at isau Francisco Under the Very No.-e of the Jndu "Yho De tected His. Fii-ht Attempt ut Crook ed 'NVorlf. The publication of the article regarding -the running hore Caprice, that ik supposed to have been worked as a ringer on one Of the Marjland tracks a few dajs ago, has brought to light some facts that will be of interest to horsemen In this section, and, in lact, thioughoutthc country, for Cipiice has been made to do duty under various titles in nearly cicry rod of it. Capnce. or Caprice Colt lie should be cillcd, is owned by parties in this city, but to them he lias been of no service for two years, thouglr he has won a number of good race, and m the aggregate, a con siderable sum of money. Bought "When a. Two Tear Old. Capnce Celt was sired by Young Luke. His dam was -Captice. The colt was bought when a two-year-old by It J Kennedy and Otto Rupert, both well-known gentlemen or this city He made his maiden effort over tlio,Benning track in the snow or 16U3 It was a half-mile event and Caprice Coll won it easily in fifty seconds In the rollowing spring Caprice Colt was shipped to Unity, but he was not started there. At Itoby lie was placed in the hands of Ed Trotter, a veil-known trainer, who took him to the St. Louis fair grounds. At St. Louis Tiotter entered Caprice as a two-year-old as "Greenwood" and in the name ot It. J Kennedy, who was then in Washington and knew nothing of the occurrence. "Greenwood" started in the pools at -10 to 1, and was pounded the country over until his price fell to 1 to 2. This abtonishlng proceeding naturally aroubed suspicion and when the horse appeared upon the track he was called to the stand by Judge Burke, who had a veterinary examine him Thcanimal was pronounced a three-year-old and he was bent to the stable, and it was here, after further in vestigation, that "Greenwood" was found to be no other than "Capnce Colt." The colt was then shipped to Washing ton and placed in a private stable here, where he remained for about two "weeks While lie was hen- Tim Ljnch. a running horse man, made a proposition to his owners tliat lt- would take Capnce Colt and pay all expenses incurred by him and divide the colt's winnings with them This the owners accepted Goes, into New Ilnnds. Lynch took the colt to Flushiug, L. I Here, on June 2S, lb94, he won a race with bun. Later, at the same meeting, he won another race. From Flushing Lynch shipped Caprice to Nashville, Tenn. Here he is credited with making a killing with him, the colt winning a three-quarter-mile event against a field of good ones, m 114. At both rius-hing and Nashville the colt was entered under a fictitious name. Lynch then went to Birmingham, Ala., but if he started the colt there nobody here knows it. From Birmingham Ljnch proceeded to San Francisco with Caprice, where he and the colt now are, so it is plain that the ringer that stirred up the Maryland con tingent a few days ago is not the St. Loins "Greenwood," as has been clulmed. Caprice, colt, was taken to California in the same stable with Hyman. He was ruled ofr at St. Louis by Judge Burke, but notwithstanding this fact, and strange as it may seem, he has been running on the coast, under Judge Burke's very nine, and Jias won race after race. One race h' won as late as December, ISflG. Caprice is running in California under the name of Mount Ray. r OWNER BOTD SUSPENDED. Charged That He Had the Ilor-e Uaymurket Pulled. Ean rrancisco, Jan 7 J II R"c6e and J. W. Wilf on. Judges atthe Ingleside track, have handttl down a decision in the case 3f the horse Haymarket, his owner Bold and Jockey Stanford,, who were engaged In a suspicious looking race last week. Just be fore the race, which wasa steeple chase, Haymarket, who was the favorite, receded fo much in the betting that the Judges tojk down Stanford and put up an other Jockey Stanford afterward told the judges that the owner, Bojd, had asked him to pull Haj market, but he had re fused to do so. as() that he had been im portuned to pull that and other horses several times. The derir.on is that Jockey Stanford be fined $2" and suspended for the rest of the Ingleside meeting for not having told them when he was first lequcsted to pull the horses. Owner Bojd has been in definitely suspended, and his entries, In cluding the horse Haymaiket, will be re fused in the future. FOOTBALL A DISTURBER. May Cause u Big RniupuB in the Missouri University.

Brutally Attacked His Stnge Man ager and Is Fined. Detroit, Mich., Jan. 7. It developed to day, despite the most strenuous endeav ors of James J. Corbett's friends to keep the matter quiet, that he celebrated his De troit opening Monday night by a brutal at tack on his stage manager, Orlando Bat taglia, and was fined for It yesterday by Justice Sellers. It appears that the show was late in reach ing town, and the scenery coiilST not be placed In time to open the performance at the advertised moment. In tlie third act Corbett has a live scene, which for Its ef fectiveness depends on the blowing ot a steam whistle. Battaglia Informed Corbett th.it the com pany whistle could not be made ready in rune, and he would have to use the house whistle. Corbett missed one of his cues by the whistle failing to blow. At the drop of the curtain, It is said, "Gentleman Jim" rushed fiom. the stage direct at the stage manager. He picked Battaglia up by the shoulders andshook him as a cat would a rat. After shaking tlie life nearly out of him, he dropped him, and with the left and right sent out full force, smashed Battaglia, knocking him flaton his back ten feet away. As the stage manager is but five feet five inches tall, he was a puppet in Corbett's hands. Battaglia swore out a warrantnext morning, and Corbett was quickly summon ed to appear at a private session of thecourt. He pleaded gu'lty and pjId his fine. To Spite His Mother.

Thls-texhlbUion will take place on Monday evening, and on Tuesday a similar performance will be .given in Scrantou. This is, the.city. which . was so anxious to enter a rider in the Washington six-day race. The great rivalry, between Scranton and Wilkcsbarre caused the former town to break that commandment which relates to envlousness, on the occuslon of Rice's great triumph. Hence their desire to enter a man whom they thought better than Bice. From Scranton the team will skip to Rochester, N. ,'r, wjiero a chance will be given the Inhabitants to view two world's champions, on Thursday evening. Buf falo will then come in for a qncriiight stand, but bejond that Plummer has not arranged the itinerary. Pluininer, with hi.-, team, will probably remain In this country about two months longer. He has not decided whether he will enter any of his men in the Chicago six-daj race, which commences at the Coliseum, February 21. Ot course, Hale, Chappie, Hunter, and the others would have time to get lu condition for that event, which is. juore, than a month distant Waller wilt very likely enter the Chicago race, which will be a go-as-you-please affair. Ashinger, who is still in t,his city,, will very likely to be seen there also, aa beseems unable to keep out of the game. With the exception of the Chicago af fair, uo other six-dav races have been decided upon, though there is considerable talk iu that line among various Southern and Western cities. SKATING CONTESTS.

The attraction at the Convention Hall Ice Palace next week will be a. series of races on the stills between Joe Donoghue, JohnNeilson, and John Lawson, the Terrible Swede, and a number of local cracks. Joe Donoghue is well known in Washington on account of his appearance here at the rink last season, and as he is even in better shape than- at that time he confidently expects to regain his championship speed. John Neil.son is the new comer in the aggregation, but he enjoys a wide reputa tion, and will no doubt give the two toetter known skaters a hard tustle for the laurels of the meet. Lawson, the Terrible Swede, is excet'lingly anxious to get a race with Donoghue and he will be gratified in this respect next week Lnv son enjoys an excellent name as a skater, being the champion of Sweden, and is confident that he can heat out the graceful Joe in competUion. It is very probable, too, that some of the local fast men will be given a chance to try their &MU with the professionals, and it they arc accorded this opportunity there" wiirbe'n numbt'r'of entries to select from. Besides the competition rates there will be a number of attempts against fime.'and it" is expected thawltlrtiie better knowledge of the track Donoghue and Lawbon will have over last season tliat some new iiiarks' will be established.

Two Lare Halls Have Been Rented ' on C Street Present Quarters "Were Too Crowded. The board of 'managers of the Worklng ntnn'B Library Association and Labor Bureau have practically decided to move their headquarters from the present lo cation, No. 316 Eighth street, to 609 C street northwest. President Jamea Mclver and Manager C- A Maidens yesterday called on Mr. W. C- Butler, who had kindly offered the association the use of one of his hails free otrentforoneyearandinadearrangenients 'for both the large hallB at No- 609 C Btreet The present quarters have been found too "small for the accommodation of the as sociation, especially as regards room for the library. From a business standpoint the leasing of the place has not been a financial success on account of the limited accommodations afforded. The managers have been compelled to refuse good ten unts for assembly halls aud so, in a measure Veep away from the library as sociation organizations wlmu otherwise would have become contributing member. The new quarters, as stated, will consist of two large assembly halls on the second and third floors, which can be uwd as lodge room" or meeting places by organisa tions. This gics the asciatlon an op portunity to double its monthly rent roll, which the officers feel they will be able .to do Ylthout trouble. In addition to this the members of the association will have great accommoda tions for themselves and plenty or room Tor the library, which is daily increasing. It has not been definitely deteniiintHl when the removal to the new quarters will take place, but it Is very probable that It will be about January 15. The matter .will be finally settled at a meeting of the association winch will be held tomorrow evening. ECHOES OF SEELEY DINNER. JPoJice Captain Chnpmnn Wu For mally Placed on Trial.

WILL CONTROL THE POTOMAC "Work of Seining the Canal Beinic JSagerly Watched Already Greut Numbei-H of Black Huhh Have Been Saved All CurnivorouJFiHh X.ike Carp nnd Eels Are Killed. The anglers of three States and the Dis trict of Columbia, all true sportsmen, and deeply Interested in the preservation of the better grade of fish in the Potomac, are engaged In the task or procuring legislation that will prohibit the taking of bass from the waters by other means than the rod and line. In addition, they have combined to save the bass from the canal by seining them from the deep holes along its course and transferring them to the river, thus pre venting their wholesale destruction when the canal bed goes dry. It is the Intention eventually toform a National Anglers' Association, ?hus ex tending the scope and Influence, .t the organization and providing for a mure ex tensive work lu the Interest of n.h culture and their preservation from the spoiler. The combination now operating has already succeeded in securing the adoption of stringent measures in two States Mary land and Virginia against fishing out of season and prohibiting the use of a trot line, nets and other devices for the slaughter of the finny denizens or the Potomac, and a similar measure is to be (submitted to the West Virginia legislature at the session which begins on the 13th instant, wirh every prospect that it will be adopted. Control the Potomac. Upon the passing of this third enactment the anglers will be in a position to control the Potomac fishery, and following this will come the movement to organize the association mentioned, which "will em brace among Its members a number ot well known Congressmen, judges, and others of prominence and influence. Tho movement is said to have originated with Dr. Messmore, principal warden of the Game Association of Maryland, but there are enlisted with him many inter ested citizens in his own State, Virginia, Marjland, tho District, and other sections. The present operations are conrined to the work along the canal. At each recur ring season the canal becomes filled with young bass, and when the winter weather renders it impossible to operate the boats, with profit, and the water is drained off, the fish seek the deep water holes that are left. The anglers are this year having those places seined and are transrerring bass and perch to the river, while the carp and eeK and other coarse fish are thrown out and killed. Fish Will Be Saved. It is estimated that not less than 25,000 fish wili be saved this year, and that from these 6,000,000 will be produced. Anglers all regret the introduction of the ferocious German carp into the Potomac, and their extermination would be gladly welcomed. The carp is described as the English sparrow among fishes, so far as pugnacity is concerned, and a veritable cannibal as well, preying upon spawn of every species, and destroying the young in great numbers. Their presence, how ever, is an evil that cannot well be eradi cated and tho move next best to their obliteration is to foster and protect the better classes of fish, and this the pros pective association will do.
