CIrlJ«(« nrlnjrlnjr JJlunhew to Their
Check"— Thcr Sl»n Hooker, the
JHaneliei.<«T Pitcher:
Throe thousand five hundred spectators
caw the Brownies, the leaders of the Tri-
City League, defeat tha Chicago Stars nt
•the Broad-Street Park yesterday ' after
noon by the score of 3 to 0. It was a tie
pmc up to the last half of the ninth
inninp." neither side having scored, when
Darby hit a corking two bagger to the
/eft-field fence, was sent to third on
Eacho's sacrifice, and scored on Jim
McEvoy"s grounder to Gage, which the
latter could not gather up in- time to
HUt Darby off at home.
It was an old-time crowd that turned out
yesterday, reminding one of the palmiest
*all days in Richmond. The grand stand
yras completely filled, a large number of
ladies being in . evidence. The sheltered
bleachers were packod. and a big overflow
filled the spare space along the fence in
left field. President Donati wore a smile
as big as his Falstnflian anatomy when he
counted the box receipts for not in years
have so many paid admissions been regis
tered at a ball game in this city.
WILL JOIN THE GILS.
Immediately after the game. Hooker,
Tvho pitched part of the game for the
Visitors, signed a contract with Manager
I. B. Olson to play with the female
[ossere for the remainder of the season.
Hooker has been doing some good work
■with the Mp.nchestcrs, but he was so
charmed with the good company he will
have until the season closes that he has
shaken the local team and will accompany
the Chicago ladies on their southern tour
ob far as Cuba.
As 10 the game. It was not the best
specimen of ball that one would care to
boe. for there was a suspicion of lameness
and "playing off" during the earlier part
sf the game that took away much of the
lnterost. But as a spectacular amuse
ment, pure and simple, it pleased the big
crowd, and that was about all that it
wanted.
GRACEFUL AND DEBONNAIRE.
Miss Maud Nelson, who did the twirling
Tor the ladies in the first six innings.
was easily the piece de resistance of the
game. She was graceful, . debonnaire,
and handled the ball with an easy in
difference and accuracy that won her a
bunch of friends from the start. Miss
JWaggle Burke, who looks the name, re
ceived an ovation after her splendid run
ning catch of Ha'gan'o long fly to left in
the fifth inning. Miss Burkes face is as
full and bright as a rising full moon, and
when she smiled in recognition of the
storm of applause that greeted her the
clouds that hung over the diamond in
lowering ugliness were pushed away, and
an effulgent radiance spread over the
field.
Mary McLane's description of herself
was cheered to the echo when she pulled
down Morgan's long fly to right in the
eighth inning. On approaching the play
ers' bench in front of the grand stan<l,
t>he was applauded again, and blushed a
scarlet hue as deep as the color of her
BUft."
THE GANG WENT WILD.
All the crowd wanted, as an excuse to
cheer was for any. of the girls to catch
the ball, and anything thai looked like
fapt ball playing on their part was enough
1o set the fane wild:. Special mention can
he made of Yeula Robertson's work at
first base. She is as fair arid as sunny and
as cute as her name would imply, if read
in a yellow-back novel by Laura Jean Lib
bey. Miss Robertson covered the position
in capital, style, and picked up the half
bounces, traps, and straight ones right
along. The ladies were greatly strength
ened by the presence of Gage at short,'
and Russell behind the bat. They are
both fast players, and covered a lot of
ground, but they are males, and cannot
' come In for a share of the general
praise- due the team, which is known as
tho "Young Ladies' Champion Base-Ball
Club of the World, Travelling in Their
Own Special $10,000 Pullman."
THEY COULD REALLY THROW.
The girls played well all round. When
they threw the ball it went in the direc
tion aimed— something- so unusual, that it
pleased the spectators to death. There
was some neat exhibitions of team work,
and the principal point of weakness shown
by the team was its base running. Miss
Maggie Burke hit a hot one to Eacho in
the second inning, which he* slightly fum
bled, and Maggie should have reached
first, but she seemed to be carrying
•weight, or age. or dressed in a divers'
cult with lead in her shoes, and could not.
make the journey to first in time to beat
out the ball. Hooker did excellent pitch-
Ing for the girls when he was put in the
box, and made such a good impression
that he was forthwith signed for the rest
of the season. The girls should have
Beared in the ninth inning— or rather the
male portion of the girls' team should
have done so— for with Gage on third and
Russell on second, and the crowd rooting
to beat the band. Hooker ingloriously
struck out, and Miss Maud Nelson, the
next hitter up, dribbled a slow one to
Gathright. 1

OF THE INFANTICIDE.
Conrity Police Have Clue to the.Wo
. man TVho Threw. Her Bal>y
. Away. ' -
"I am of the opinion that we are hot on
the trail of the woman who threw her
baby away in the county road -back, of
Chimborazo. Park on Tuesday of last
week, and have great hopes -that she will
soon be under arrest," was the statement
of 'Squire George W. Thomas, at the
Henrico county court-house yesterday af
ternoon.
Mr. Thomas declared to the reporter
that he has two me/i Hunting for the
woman, and that one of them will be
enabled to recognize her on sight. He
says that he has been able to develop
the fact that a citizen of the county saw
the woman on .the day the. child, was
found, on the road leading down' over
Chimborazo toward the Government road,
in -the direction of the spot where the
babe was found. Th 6 woman had in her
arms a package wrapped in newspapers
that corresponds .exactly to the way the
baby was wrapped. Her actions attract
ed the. attention of the man, and he
watched her dodg-e from the view of seve
ral passers.
The woman is described as of medium
build, with an elastic step, and apparently
about 20 years of age. When she was
seen withthe bundle in her arms she was
dressed in a black skirt with a white
shirt-waist, and wore a hat trimmed with
black crepe.
•Squire Thomas is using every effort
to locate the suspected woman, and hopea
that the mystery will be unravelled in a
few days.
WAR GAME IS 01,
(CONTINUED^ FROM FIRST PAGE.)
son has stationed ensigns all along the
shore to report the enemy the instant it
is sighted. These naval officers will be
reinforced. by all marine observers along
the coast.
The "White" Squadron must be in port
for six hours without being confronted by
a superior force. Within that time, Ad
miral Higginson, if he held his heavy
ships midway between the extremities to
be defended, Rockport for instance, could
reach his enemy by steaming ten or eleven
knots an hour. From Cape Ann, which
is just outside of Rockport, to Cape Cod,
is only forty-two miles and a half, and
from Cape Ann to Elizabeth Light, out
side of Portland, is only fifty-eight miles.
ARMY MANOEUVRES.
Regulars and Militia Both to Parti
cipate — Fort Riley the Scene.
{WASHINGTON, August 20.— An order
was issued at the. War Department to
day, directing the mobilization of a mixed
divisjon of regulars and militia on the
large reservation at Fort Riley, Kan.
The Governors of all the States were
invited to send a , contingent of the va
rious State forces to participate in these
manoeuvres, but very few of the States
found themselves able to participate. Ar
kansas will send one battalion of Infan
try, Kansas two regiments of infantry
and two batteries of field artillery, and
Nebraska two regiments of infantry. A
number of Governors of States have'sig
nified their intention to send officers to
witness the manoeuvres.
It is said that President Roosevelt will
review the troops participating in the
manoeuvres, but the date of the review
has not been determined definitely.
The regular contingent of the division
will go into camp at Fort Riley Septem
ber 20th, and will be followed by the
State organizations September 29th. It
is Intended to continue joint manoeuvres
for a period of ten days after the division
is organized. The benefits to be derived
from bringing together regiments, bri
gades . and divisions is so apparent that
the War Department has fully determined
upon this policy for the future.
There will be no effort to iirlitate the
great manoeuvres .which take place an
nually in Europe. The government in
tends to utilize its own -reservations for
this work, whereas in Europe the manoeu
vres practically cover a space as great as
the whole of New England. With their
long experience, in these matters,; they
have become able to manoeuvre over this
great property under some just and equi
table arrangement for compensation, but
In America any attempt.to,do r this would
be followed by a flood of claims for.dam
ages, and no such scheme ever could be
carried out. . .

\ Democratic Snccess, Says Mr.
s - Tlioni— XcwliightHoTise Tender for
.Virginia— Are Roosevelt and Little
ficld Out? '
WASHINGTON, D. C, August 20.—(Sep
cial.)—Among Virginians in Washington
the opinion- prevails generally that no se
rious /bitterness or soreness will, be left
among the Democrats of the Second Dis
trict' as .a result of the recent campaign
and renomination of Congressman May
nard, Republican .politicians of Norfolk
and' other places in the district have been
hopeful: that; considerable bitter feeling
would be left, and that they would pro
fit by it. They intend to nominate a can
didate for "Congress against Mr. Maynard
and pretend to have some hope of success.
One of the factors counted on in the as
pirations for a Republican • triumph is
the supposed feeling that would be en
gendered by the race that has just been
concluded. .
Among the Norfolk people in the- city
to-day were Alfred T. Thorn, division
counsel 'of the Southern railway, and
William H. White, former United States
Attorney for the Eastern District. The
latter joined his Wife' here for a trip
North. Mr. Thorn; said to the Dispatch
correspondent: ' xhe Democrats all over
the district will acquiesce in the result,
and will' do so most cheerfully. There is
absolutely no chance for Republican suc
cess." - .
The !managers of the Democratic con
gressionalcompangn here say that not a
dozen votes will, be lost by the feeling
growing out of the primary, and that the
number will probably not be that large.
There is 'not the slightest fear of losing
the district.
■Friends of - Congressman - Maynard in
this city ' have deluged him with tele
grams of congratulation to-day, >and his
mail for the next. few days, from his host
of friends everywhere, .will be extremely
large. -
NEW LIGHTHOUSE TENDER.
At the Lighthouse Board it is stated
that the contract tor the building of the
new tender for the Fifth Lighthouse Dis
rrict> to replace- the twin-screw launch
Bramble, has not yet been approved by
the Secretary of the Treasury. The Fifth
Lighthouse District includes Virginia and
the Carolinas,- and a new boat to go by,
the name of Juniper is to b,e built to take
the place of the Bramble for service in
this important district. .
The Bramble was built in 1579, and is. a
twin-screw launch of about thirty-two
gross h.urden. During me fiscal year end
ing in June, 1900, she attended to the gas
beacons in the sounds of North Carolina.
During this period she was under steam
620 hours and ran about 1.503 miles. By
act'of June 6, 1900, Congress appropriated
520,000 with whicn to build a vessel to re
place her. Bids were offered for tne con
struction of the new vessel and were
opened-on July 3, 1901, but all were re
jected for the reason' that the lowest call
ed for a contract price greater than the
amount appropriated. The needs of the
service, however, and the higher price of
material caused .-±e board to recommend
that a tender such as would suit all needs
of the service should be built for $32,000.
Congress, therefore, appropriated an ad
ditional 512.000 for the construction of the
new lighthouse tender.
The' name of the ship is to.be the Juni
per. She is to 'be ninety-five feet long,
of eighteen feet beam, and eight feet
depth of hold, and to draw tour feet of
water. She ' will have two cylinder en
gines, 12-inch cylinders, 12-inch stroke,
and driving two propellers. She will be
equipped with a surface condenser. Steam
is to be furnished by a water-tube boiler.
Gas will be supplied by a number of gas
tanks situated in the hold. Dis
placement, 108 tons, and the boat will,
have about 200 indicated horse-power.
The Sperdden Ship Company, of Balti
more, has the contract, which calls for a
contract price of $27,000. The Juniper Is
to be completed within seven months after
the approval of the contract by the Secre
tary "of the Treasury. Secretary Shaw
will approve the contract in a short while.
When the Juniper is completed, Virginia
and the Carolinas wnl have one of the
finest lighthouse tenders in the service.
ROOSEVELT AND LITTLEFIELD.
The itinerary of President Roosevelt's
New England trip, . made public to-day,
fails to provide for a visit by the Presi
dent to Rockland, Me., the home of Repre
sentative Littlefield. It is recalled here
that the President's trip to Maine was
originated by an invitation extended him
by Representative Littlefield to visit the
latter at his home. The invitation was
accepted. It was the first extended the
President for a New England trip and
was. the ' first accepted by him. All the
other plans have been made since. It is
now regarded as peculiar that Mr. Little
field's, name is not inemded among those
of gentlemen to be visited by the Presi
dent. It: is believed that the President and
Mr. Littlefield had an understanding to
call off the visit,, or, probably, to have
no "announcement of it made in advance,
if ! the President is really going there.
Possibly, the President did riot care for a
revival of the trust discussion of some
time back,' when r the announcement was.
made that Mr. Littlefield is at work on a
trust 1 bill to be submitted to Congress
that will have the backing oi the Presi
dent. There has been no disturbance of
the relations between the two men, and
there is nothing in this direction to. cause
a change in the programme of a visit
to Rockland,' but- the matter is exciting
interest; at any rate.

A VIRGINIAN IN NAPLES.
Mr. Brodie Nalle in a. Letter Gives
Him Impressions in Hnmoroni Vein.
CHARLOTTESVILLE. ' 'VA.,' August
20.— (Special.)— A letter to Dr. W. A. Lam
beth, from Mr. Brodie C. Nalle, a medi
cal student of the University of Virginia,
who is travelling with his. friend Mr.
Charles C. Tennant, of Rchmond, also a
student of the University of Virginia, "af
fords some pleasant quips from the genial
Brodie, which' his friends will find at
tractive. He writes from. Naples:
"Your letter caught us at Rome, and
* am sure that no one has rejoiced more
In that burg since Nero fiddled at his
house-warming than I did upon getting
your epitome of what was going on in
God's country. With all your guesses yOu
did not locate us two seekers of informa
tion. We were in Holland frivolling with
those Dutch damsels as they made their
Edam cheese, and admiring their klne
faced cows, or perhaps trying our luck
with the flounders in the Zuyder-Zee. * "
"Charlie didn't tell you. the exact truth
about the downfall of the Campanile, but
only prepared you for the truth, which
he wants me to tell you. Well. Doc, you
know we did it, and we were ringing the
bell.whenvshe fell. Of course this is not
generally. 1 known among the Venetians,
and I know you won't expose us, for we
had to do something to commemorate our
visit to this distant clime, and we tfaought
this small enough.
"The next worse thing we did was to
come vto Italy. Of course, tve enjoyed
Rome . through and through, meandered
through the catacombs, admired St. Pe
ter's and all the other fine churches,
buildngs, museums, etc., climbed to the
balcony of the Coliseum, and last and
least, , paid the Pope a short visit. He
seemed to be very glad to see us, and .was
especially taken with Charlie.
"Went to the Blue. Grotto "yesterday,
and it is fine. Have just. gotten back to
day from Vesuvius. • *.-•• Of course,
our bad luck followed us, so, It suffered
from indigestion while we were there and
disfigured us slightly; but, despite that,
and the fall of the Campanile, we are
still game to try Paris, although my grip
of experience is about full. -Naples-must
be the dirtiest place in: the world, for
never have I seen such poor, pitiful, flea
bitten, mosquito-eaten people. We had
to go' through the toughest part to get
to Vesuvius, and it beat any thins I have
ever seen. * * "■;,,* -*_„.!
"We leave here to-morrow (August oth)
for Paris, which we hope to reach in a
few day?. From Paris to London:, and
probably sail about the 26th of August."
