The National ltltica- grand fair and exhibition for
thelieuentof the armory debt fund will open Hon
dav evening, November '-', and continue two weeks.
The object 13 a meritorious one, and as the entire
proceeds are to bo applied to the liquidation of the
mortgage debt on the beautiful armory, which
now burdens thin honorable and enterprising com
mand. It Is hoped that ccry resident of Ihe District
will lend a hand In the laudable effort. The organi
zation has proven Itself worthy of the lonOdence
and support of our people, and deserves all the
recognition and material aid that can be bestowed
upon It. It la one in which all our people should
take pride. It enjoys a national reputation as one
of the leading military commands, nt this great
country, and tanks second to none in personal de
portment, soldierly training, and social lutlucnce.
Organized onlv live years since, and possessing
uothlngTvlth which to build Itselfnp buttheenergv,
persemance. and good business qualities of its
membership, it has stepped rapidly from the rear to
the front rank of success, and to-day U recognized
as one or the leading organizations In the Untied
states The command receives no support what
ever from Ihe United Mates or local government,
'ihe armory In which It meets to perfect Itself in
drill, to euah'e It 10 act as a well-trained body of
troops In case of an emergency,! heavily taxed by Ihe
District go eminent. Ihe uniforms worn by the
inemtiers are the property of the command, paid for
out of the pockets of the members. Even the arms
carried by ihe command are only loaned to It, and
then only loaned after the officers had gHenagood
and sufnrieut iwnd for their reinrn -when demanded
by Ihe Untied .states. No itreet festuitles take
place here or in Jtalilmore but the Junes are called
upon 10 participate In and help make a success, and
such alfalrs are Invariably at the expense of the
command, ho the contingent fund of the company
and the pockets of ihc members are frequently and
severely taxed to meet these demands. It will be
sen that the military have good nnd Jnst reasons
for appealing to their friends and the public for aid,
" encouragement, nnd support. They give their time
and attention In keeping up the standard of well
trained and well-disciplined soldiers, nnd the cltl
zensof the District should inturn contribute to their
maintenance and support. They are a necessary
adjunct to onr )mlce force, and are capable of doing
au Immense of good In protecting both life and
property In this District If the emergency should
eer arise when their services would lie required,
ho let every one In tho city help the good cause.
Every contribution, be it ever so small, will pay a
fractional part of the debt on the Rifles' home. I et
the fair be a big success.

Dr. nd.Mli. Ihc noted chemist of New York rilr.
nnd who I nt present employed In Investigating Iho
water-works of that cltr, has made, a report to tho
heallh official nt the canse that led to the had taste
of the water last summer. Dr. Kdson attributes tho
Mine to wnai i Known a "deadends." A dead
end 1 that portion of theplpo thatot It furthest
end ha no outlet ; tor Instance. In Washington a
connection nllh the big main at Ninth and I, streets
run sonin, ami at 11 street na a "dead end." Dr.
Kdson fonndthlrty-nvc miles of "dead ends'' In New
ork, nnd he holds that Ihe water through stagna
tion becomes Impregnated with organic matter.
Hot weather, according to Dr. Kdson, caused the
Impure water to expand In volume, and, flowing
hack.mlngled with thu pure water.and with It entered
the service pipes of the houses. In n talk with ono
of the Inspectors of the mains of this city It was
learned that "dead ends "necessarllr exist In this
city, but not, of course, Ilko In New York. Tho
nuaoing auoptcu nero tnrougn me uso of the ore
pitign wor& most aiivamageonsir, ns most of
ihc stagnated water Is removed by that process.
Another method In force Is the "blowlnrnut" s?s.
tern after the pipes are flushed, and which generally
removes nearly all secretions deposited In tho pipes,
or course all organic matter cannot be gotten out In
this way. and It allowed to rest In " dead ends " will
necessarily lead to Impurities. Krom another source
It was learned that " dead ends" had been removed
from tho plpoaof this city covered and reeking with
barnacles and ot her Impurities. 1 1 such la the case,
a remedy should at onco be adopted. Dr. Kdson
proposes in un ici"ri anu u m uacKeu op uy emi
nent engineers ot New York City to connect the

lttlon will bo kent np In the pipes. A similar meas-

Indeed, It Is moro apt to bo regarded n tho stamp of
thepvrvenno. So.lt tho cads who come In Ivy t'lty
with Iheturt gamblers notice tho quiet' lone which
prcvalUbothlndres nnd equipage they really piy
in a compliment, for Iho absence of the shoddy cle
ment Is what constitutes Ihc distinctive clnrm of
Washlngtonllfe. Though there miy be few four In
handsln Ihe Held at IvyClty,thc grand standnsually
contains a greater number ot ladles cf genuine so
cial rank than can be seen on most American race
course. To cnumcralo thoso ot official, diplomatic,
military, and naval circle who attended would take
more spaco than can be spared.
It Is greatly to be hoped that a few Inexpensive
Improvements will bo made beforo tho spring meet
ing. The most Important ot Iheso I a lengthening
of the poot lawn, and the erection ot an open stand
at Its end llko that nt Plmllcn. This enables a largo
nnmbcrof persons to get tip within lew ot a raco
after they cry " They're off," and relieves the crowd
ing on the steps ot the stand. Persons belated on
the lawn at the start now havo llttlo chance to see
tht horses during any part of their course.
As for the sport It was aa good as ha been seen
at any meeting of Ihe year. Iho llelda wero of high
quality, and Ihe very first dash gavo nneat exhibi
tion ot horsemanship, when llwyer's Lulu, coming
with a rush, carao near nipping Strathspey on the
post In very fast time. Iho two year-old slakes Ihe
same day also camo near tarnishing an upset, lor
had Mcdlnger'a F.'.kwood, who got otr badly, been
well ridden, ho would have outrun ncss, for at tho
llnlsh he was at her head and gaining at every stride.
Tho second day saw the first victory for tho Western
string and a good race between Strathspey and Jim
Douglas., which tho latter won In 1:3, tho fastest
rallo ever run over this track. Tho talent overlooked
public form when they made Mnthspey favorite,
tor.the Callfornlan has time, and again shown him
self the faster horse, and beside ho had seven
pounds thebest of the weights. Under thoclrcum.
stance the odds ot 11 to fi against hint were surpris
ingly liberal. They would undoubtedly have been
moro rreelv taken but for the lurking suspicion the
bettor always ha when ho sees what looks like a
good thing, that the bvokraaker havo secret Infor
mation Ruonl the condition of tho horses. 'Ihe
other dump of Tuesday was tho defeat of a lot of
platers, ot which the Brighton Bencher, Cardinal
McCloskey, was the f av onto by Tony Foster, who,
although he had McLaughlin up, waa au s to 1
chance. Ihe last race ot Tuesday waa another de
feat for tho talent, for though tho renowned Mc
Bowling was fresh from various victories In fast
company In Kentnckr, they could not believe him
speedy enough to oulfoot Frankle B. of Brook wood.
He did It, however, and made a very pretty race.
Frankle took tho flrat heat easllv lu liicvf. But
this apparently only warmed the Westerner up, for
be took the track. In the second beat, and making
all the running, won It In the samo fast time, 1 :18.v.
McLaughlin, on Frankto B., linding the pace pretty
stiff, iu the homestretch eased up and let
DrooVwood chaao McBowling In. The youngster
ran well and finished c'osa up, and It he had
not got off badly might perhaps have made a
close thing nt It tor McUowllng. 1 he most surpris
ing thing about thl race was that the third and de
ciding heat, In which Oodfrey pursued tho same
taciica with McBowllug ot making the pace, waa run
In exactly the same time as the two others.
On Thursday, having had a whole rainy day to
look the Held over and ux things, the Brighton ging
camo out In great style and showed the people who
bet on public form that stable-owners kuow how to
prepare for the long winter months when horses
will be eating their heads off. 'ihe Brighton starter
did not trouble himself to bsvo appearances by
keeping the horsea at the post, but as soon aa he saw
Soverlegn Pat and Jim Douglas so far down the
stretch that they could make a show ot trying with
out risking anything, he promptly dropped hts flag.
Lnlu and Resale had a running start In iho lead, and
galloped over the course In the suprlstngly slow
time for the weights ot 1 :47,v. Holloway on Doug
lass made a hollow pretense of riding, but It Is ridicu
lous to suppose that If the horse waa meant to
win he could havo been beaten In snch slow time
even wltn the start he got. But to prove that he
waa ridden for the bookmakers, though he made no
effort to beat Luln, he waa whipped the last few
strides In order to beat Bessie U. for the place.
Daly's filly, of course, carried some place money,
but a Douglass had not been backed except 10 win
this little spurt was of course In the Interest of the
bookmakers, who had offered ridiculously short
odds against Lulu and long onea against
all the others for the place. The time In
which the next race a stake race waa made proves
conclusively that Lnln'a win was a put-up Job. The
Bard, a two-year-old, carrying its pounds, two
pounds more than Jim Douglass did, won easily In
I M, only half a second slower, while he was lapped
ont by Bess, who carried 117 pounds. Lulu and
Bessie II. must be even poorer than they were
thought. If such moderate colts as The Bard aud
Bess can beat them forty pounds. The Washington
Stakes looked (suspiciously lite another bookmaker a
race. Although on public form the right should
have been between Sprague and Barnum, and al
though the state of the track favored the latter, he
receded In the betting as soon as It was seen that he
waa to be ridden by niggs. Tho race wis a farce,
for Maynard on Spragne made no effort, and though
Higgs appeared to force the pace along the back
Btretch, he slowed up around the turn and allowed
strathspey to come home In a canter. He may have
ridden to orders, but In that case whoever instructed
him knew he must lose If he obeyed. It Is notplcas
ont to have to write these things, but unless the
managers of the National Jockey Club show some
determination to repress such swindles the lorf In
terest here will soon go to the dogs.
On Friday Swllt waa scratched In tho Ilrst race,
giving an easy victory to McBowllng. Bersan won
the Potomac states in a big gallop, and coses ihe
season as he-began It tho three.year-old champion,
Volante, despite his want of condition, ontfootlng
the others for a place. Fosteral ran a good race for
the Congress Stakes, and Bob Miles showed Ihe ef
fects of his recent bruising contests, for he was
beaten away off, and the light-weighted but disap
pointing Enigma ran into the place Barnum won
the first of the mile heats, carrying 119 pounds, like
a real race horse, and the way ho won It showed
that ne" didn't try "the day before. The twnoiher
heats were taken handily by Heel and Toe. Yester
day's card contained Ave regular races and one
extra, of which last moro anon. Bessie B. took the
two-year-old stakes handily, Frank Ward and Wait
awhile having a close Bght for the place, the favorite,
Elkwood, making a poor showing. John C. wan a
good race at seven furlongs after a close finish with
Uberto, Queen Esther, the favorite, Unlading In the
ruck. Bersan was scratched In Ihe 1", handicap,
and the public having been taught tho lesson that
owners are entitled to all the money when their
horses wlu, the big Callfornlan Jim Douglass was
let go and romped home easily In spite of his top
weight, Swift handily dropping right where sho was
wanted, to save the books, Into the place. Perhaps
she could not have beaten Douglass at th weights
and distance, but her owner was not disappointed,
for aha waa apparently not wanted to get any nearer
the front than sho did. Colonel Spragne, who could
not ran a bit when Strathsjey waa In front ot him,
and who was excused because he was said to be
"all gone," came around all right yesterday and
galloped In an easy winner In 1 :ux. The despised
Jumpers vindicated public form by running tho best
horse flrat and the poorest last, and It Is a pity for
the dab that the day's sport was not allowed
to finish with the steeplechase, for tho bo called
gentlemen's riders performance was as barefaced
a swindle as was ever seen on a race-course. We
only know what appeared on the surface of this
affair and havo no desire to Inquire too closely Into
whst occurred behind the scenes. The young "gen
tlemen" who rodo may have supposed they nero
actually engaging In a race. But Mr. Ilarnood
ought to know that It adds nothing to the reputation
of a gentleman or a sportsman to accept a mount on
a horse which on public furm ooght to have a
chance to win, but which, when It comes to tho teat,
cannot run a bit. It needs no argument to show
that tome one Anew that Ecuador had no show In
this race, even though Clark's chance had an
parently been Impaired by having already rau a
hard race with Col. Sprague. Jn this connection It
la proper to remind the managers of the Jockey
Club that there was no little unfavorable commen.
upon the reinstatement of W. C. Daly. It would
have been better for the club to have kept him off.
If he Is to come back and Is given a chance to become
either principal or accessory In such outrageous
perforniancea as the last race ot yesterday. Below
will be fouud the details of the racing ;

A gentleman prominent In base-ball mattcra said
to Tub Hekai yesterday that the recent base bull
convention at New Y'ork was called to consider two
questions only, viz: the new national agreement and
me mailer ot salaries, and that the question of ad
mitting new clubs to the League or American Asso
ciation was one that would be determined at the
regular meeting In December, at which time bo was
assured that tho National Club would bo admitted.
He also said that the hue and cry of stealing players
was exaggerated, that but nue manager had at
tempted to take any of the players, while assurances
had come In from oihcr clubs that, while they would
like to have several ot the Nationals' men, they
would not Interfere until the question of their admit
tance to the League or American was determined,
as they were satisfled this club would be admitted to
one or tho other association. It Is also said lhat
lhat none of the Nationals' players will sign until
this question Is eellled.
