THE aiOIiJOSTGr TIMES, SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1897,
A gentleman remarked yesterday that buying clothing at the
prices we are quoting "was a regular picnic." So it is ! Anything
other clothiers may say to the contrary, it is not possible for any one
of them to quote anything like as low prices we are naming on the
stock of the CONTINENTAL CLOTHING CO., late of 11th and F Sts.,
recently bought out by us for cash ! It is pitiful to see their puny
hippodroniing efforts to belittle this sale of ours ! You men know
values ! You know what you have been paying ! Just come in here
at any time to look at this immense, magnificent new stock of Suits
(not a few odd lots) going at exactly half the Continental Clothing

Tom Brown and the other members of
the "Washington Baseball Club who, with
exceptions, J- Earl Wagner has dubbed
quitters, did not play in the League circuit
yesterday. They evidently took a reEt iu
the Mound City, and those who had a notion
that they could pick winners went to the
races, as that occupation is consider
ably more difficult than playing baseball,
the chances are on fonn they were not
It was learned last night that Mr. Wag
ner, owner, is now somewhere looking
after additional material and will spring
the now faces on the public when the team
opens here next "Wednesday. It is not
known who be is after, but as there is a
universal demand for changes in the In
jmd outfield, it seems that four men arc
required who can materialy strengthen
The most ardent rooters of the home team
arc in hopes that Mr. "Wagner, knowing
what quitters are, will not land any more
of that kind of men. There are plenty of
the crappy kind, on the Tucker order,
jmdlt was thought that when he purchased
the Beaneater's release ho would not stop
then and there.butkcepup the good ffofS
It seems, "".however, that about that time
lie was influenced by a feeling held by
old players against youngsters so decidedly
prevalent not only in the "Washington, but
In most every teamin the major League.
President Young is having his troubles
just now with the umpires. The useless
piotcstlng of players has been so frequent
that the veteran head of the National
League hardly knows which way to turn.
However, he has one or two men on his
staff who have plenty of sand. One of
these Is Shendan, who officiated at Pitts
burg on Thursday and was shamefully
treated by Pugilist Hawley and several
citizens of Brooketown and vicinity, who
bombarded the umpire with eggs "frith a
Ehcridan, however, had the requisite
nerve, and manfully stood up against the
howling mob, and did his work, and it is
Men's S25 Suits, SI2.50
now the duty of the National League to
stand by their staff, and discipline the
few ruffians who are playing ball under
contracts promulgated by the baseball
President Young had wired Sheridan
Thursday afternoon to report at some other
city, at that time not being aware of the
trouble in Pittsburg.
Later in the evening Sheridan replied
to Mr. Young's telegram requesting that
he be permitted to remain in the Smoky
City, no doubt desiring to demonstrate
that he had sand enough to face an unruly
crowd and umpire the game, lotten eggs
to the contrary notwithstanding. Presi
dent Young was so much taken by (he man
ifest grit of Sheridan that he granted him
what hehad asked, and Sheridan umpiredin
Pittsburg yesterday In the fame impartial
way that usually characterizes his work.
It is more than likely that the League
officials will take action in Ilawley's case
after they have the evidence necessary to
properly Judge the wholeaffalr. If they act
prompuyand Justly they will be commended
by every rei-pectable admirer of the great
game. Any player who deliberately as
saults an umpire should be expelled from
the League. No matter how valuable he is
to the club, his dismissal would be Justi
fiable. Only one leison would be necessary
to check the disgracrul conduct, Just as did
the expulsion of Devlin and others of the
Louisvilles who were in the hands of the
gamblers, stop the nefarious practice which
at that time was running wild in baseball
