nnfiiinrit hli"f. bsstd on a caieful
survey of the atuaaon, that Memphis
cannot lo3e nnleps serious err ois ares
made in center uia at cntic-u points
in tne pa ine. Atlanta's three fcucceto
sive deft a s hy Nashville proves lit r to
be by to mems as formidable as we
have beun ltd to expect by her easy
victories oer Macon and Augus'a.
Sue be t Micon four straights, and Au
cinta three out of four. Memphis
cama wi:hiu one (same of doing the
eatne. A great huriah baa been rmde
over the sliigKiriK abilities ot tLe At
lanta team, but the mnue tney U cid
an averaie p.tcbrr they eawed the air
like monkeva. We have before us the
official record nf f mr games played by
A tlau'a. one of tbem with Auausta and
t iree with Nashville. In the first gims
of the four niemoned the so-called
At'aata flugkors faced Holacher, Au
gusta a best pitcher, itiey got given
base hits ofl him. Against tbe tame
nitcher Mtmotis made eight base
hits. Cliue and Purcll, their crack
elugjera, couldn't hit Holacher at all.
What show will they have againrt
Knouff, who pi' ches to day. He will
make monkeys of tbem.
Now, let's take tbe three games re
cen'ly played wilh Nashville and let
us ees what the a leged sluggers diJ.
Againtt Eaker they got five hits, two
goirg o Mai: pes, one to Mcore, one to
I'urcell, aiid one to Lynch. Agains;
Dundon they made three hits, while
Nashville ponnded Shaffer for nine.
In the sicond game against Baker
they nude six hit), while Conway
wts aga'n hit far eight bases. In
vftQTriiv's enmo tbcv were defeated
10 to 3 with Dundon in tbe bcx for
Nashville. Now, to one in his sober
senses will for a moment contend tnat
Dundon is to be mentioned in the
same breath with Knouff as a pitcher,
yet Dundon wen both his games with
Atlanta, Atlanta will prouably share
tliafate of Ai Bus'a. who came here
leaders and lelt with a tatttred repu
tation. It 1b an admitted fact ttiat
Atlanta has but one pitcher of even
averase ability, Conway, who is not
nnlv a fair tttirler. bnt does reSDect
able work with the (tick. Shaffer and
Wells sra not t oublesome, and tbe
fact that Conway is not very lormida
ble is shown by the pounding Savan
nah save him. In the first game at
Savannah, May 6th, Savannah msae
eleven hits ofl Uon way, only two etna
ing nut. In the next game tbey
met B'ven bi s, on'y one striking
out, Fioda making a home run.
In the third pane Savannah made
ten hits. Fields. Moruritv and Striif
getting in it ree baggers and only four
striking out. If Memphis can't lug
such Ditching s that she hod tetter
take iu her sign as a bts ba'l club
Now. let ua e back a moment and see
what SavaiiL'ah's heavy hitters did
with Knouff. lathe first gime ths
entire club sot three hits. In the
game aciir.st O'Leary they get saven
bits and in tire List gtus (against
Knouff) they got ceven more. Does
anybody dcubt that on the surface of
things we've vol the best of Atlanta?
The Appeal li s co hesitation in say
ing that the inexorable logic of tbe
situation points to a victory for Mem.
phis, and only costly errorj can aveit
tinch a remit.

Our esteemed contemporary, the

lowing: "ihe pools were offeiing
odds of three to one oa Cbtttanoo.a,
and the result shows beyond doubt
that they wre playing with eyes
wide open. Now tneques'ion is, how
did they know all this and whtre did
they get the tip? Andrewc was sick,
aim B'ouehtou did not play."
TIim is an error The bet ing at the

even n' theso odds the bets went beg

Aa Ontpnkes) Member of the Force
Taluk There's Another and
Better Way.
"How doea the Utest order strike
you ?'' asked an A itkal man yrster-!
day of one of tbe brightest, mcst e'-'
ficient and most feirless membets of
ths Police Department.
"The standard of the force shculd
bs raised," he ssid, "and that may bs
the way ti do it, but of all the ill-ad
vised amateurish methods to come
from man of affairs, it strikes me as
the most miserable."
"In wlut way?" was asked.
"In every way. It lcoks to me very
much like an effort to appear to want
to do great deal without being will
ing or anxious todo anything. It is a
hair triggered, impracticable sort cf
thing, unwor by of a man of Mr.
Hadden's experience. Haeta-ts out
by sayirg thut t'u men a e to lu
droppid Lext year. Why say ten, or
ppeci'y any number? It t'ie whole
lorce is g red, ktep teem ell; ;t nit,
make a clean swiep. If ton men nn
the force aie wo.-th'ess, which is t he
infoience, why keep teem for eijjit
months longer, a dtaa; on t ho depm
ment? II President Iladden and the
Commissioners are reahy anxious to
do something 'o incrfaetheetlii incy
nf tbe force, why don't they call Chi-f
Davis up and ask him to name the
men who sre inelluMut, and put
orhers in t'jeir places? He knows
tbem nil by thoir bark', aad this
ttiing of keeping ia ly won't do.
Why. soma ui these fellows will go
around like wo.v s, seeking whom
they may devour, under the impres
sion tint the man who makes most
streets will be given the bUhest cred
it . It is not r r c'icnl common senss,
and it will lead to all sorts of compli
cations. The thing for the Commis
sioners to do is to get good men for
the beads of tbe various depaitments
if the pteient incumbents canno: be
trusted, and bold them re spons ble.
Did you ever see the Mikado t Well,
now, President Hadden is a regular
"Pooh-Bah." As that awful individ
ual says, it is his "degrading duty to
serve this nimtartcity as First Lird of
the Tnasury, Lord Cuiof Justice,
Commander-iu-l hi if, Lord High Ad
miral, Master nf Buckhounds, Groom
ol the Bock Staiis, Archbish
op ot Titipu and Lord May
or, bo'h acting and elect,
all rol'e 1 i-.to one, and at a salary ! A
"Poo-Bah" paid for Lisseivices. Itio
volts tiiui but he does it. Now, 1 am
conviccrd that bn means it all lor ths
good of the city, but it don't wora out
tnat way. It all comes of the sort t f
Japanese government which results in
a dia'oKue between him and callers at
bis otHce.soniathing alter th;s style:
"Is the Mayor in?"
President of Commistioners?"
"President of Biard of Health?"
4 City Engineer?"
"Hospital Physician?"
"City Carpenter?"
"Chief cf the Fire Department?"
"Chiafofthe Police Department?"
"Can I see thorn?"
"Yes; which ons?"
"All of them."
"Step ligtt this way," he says, and
leads the visit )r into bis private ollice
and shuts tbe door. He will spend
two hours settling a row between
neighbors about their bens scratching
uo each otter s seed, a note in toe
sidewalk or a broken crossing. In tbe
Police Uourt In the morning he gives
ordeis to a crowd of negroes and a few
police which should go to tne uoiei
Whv.the Chief rarely ever hears any
tning first hand. He and his captains
are nothing mora tban errand
bovs for l'rrsident Hadden, who
ban bv that means nearly de
stroyed the Chief's usefulness. Take
aey from tbe Chief his power
to set under the law, in a general way,
as lis sees boot, and let it bo under-
et)ud tnat any man under him can
wa k over his head to the President
aLd he becomes a mere figure
head. I blame the Chief, too, for not
difn'avinz more courage. He is one
of ine best men and best officers who
ever donned a uniform, and fully a'iU
to run Mi department ii it was tuinei
over to him, ss it should be. He has
been looking to Mr. Hadden for orders
about trivial matters so li ng, however,
that it wi 1 tnk him some time to get
into shape again. He would be ra'tled
if r e knew there was a member of the
ioicj talking to newspaper man tnis
way, but a little rattling won't hurt
him. 1 am nis iriena ana i mnw
eeehim impo;ed oa. Don't g'vsme
away, or you will get me fired; but
you can put it down that if Mr. Hal
den follows out his present Pooh-Bah
policy he will worry nimeen into an
early grave, ani si emasculate every
Chief he has that none of theia will
be worth their feed by the tn his
ttrmisout." "

To the Honorable Senate of the I'nited
Bute I :
Uknta-imkn Inasmuch as the
House of Representatives has deemed
it proper by certain amendments to
the river and harbor bill, which passed
that body, to ran discredit npon the
Mississippi River Commission, and
either to effectually deprivesaid River
Commission ol its proper (unctions in
controlling the work of improvement
of this great stream, or at lea t to cre
ate doubts and apprehensions in the
mir.dj of the people touching tins
matter, your petitioners lespeitfully
rrav that you will rescind the objec
tionable amendments refeir.rd to, or
at h ast that one offered bv Mr. Hep
burn, which is evidently d signed to
etuascnlnte the River Ceuiitiii sion ;
for it it is ncn-efljctive, ss some C in
gressmcn maintain, it should bs re
moved from the bill as only lerving
t ra so unuocestarv doub's and create
ainbiKiiiiy,aiu1 if it has the effect which
its mover designed we f, el certain that it
ii prove exceedingly hurtful ts the
vast commercial iuieru ts hi"h we
in part rcpreeont, and which we con
ceive are dependent upon a wise and
mi ell K ut conduct of the wotk ft
improving the navigation cf the Mi
B'sdppi river, whicti was so nu pi
c ons y begun and carried forward
under the able management of the
River Coiniiiiesion until it was unfor
tunately brought to atop by the re
fusal of the Forly-Kighth Congress to
make provision tor its continuum e.

in the act on of tbe several river im
provement conventions held at mo
dry times and places during the pait
year, have entire cor U lence in the
wisdom and ability of tho Miesirslppi
River Commission to deal with this
great problem, end we feel every a -Ftirance
that if allowed to proceej in
