C.-(Speclal)-Wash-Ington and Cleveland drew few more than a corporal's guard to the Phillies' grounds this afternoon, the stiles regis tering "but few over one thousand. Cleve land won what -was a very "dopey" and uninteresting game by a score of 5 to 1. In the flrst inning rhe Indians got Mer cer up in the air and before they had fin ished their work had made four runs, two more than they needed. It happened this way: O'Connor and Chllds singled and McKean did the same thing, scoring O'Connor. Wallace drew a pass. Tebeau then flew to Anderson, Ohilds scoring. McAleer hit to Smith, who threw wild to fcecond to catch Wallace. Wallace start ed for third and McKean for home and both men got across the plate on Rletz's wild throw to Smith. Nine men batted that inning, two being left on base. Cleveland's fifth and last run came in the fourth inning. O'Connor and Childs drew passes, but McKean died to Mc Gulre. Wallace drew a pass and the bases were full. Tebeau hit a fly to Gettman, who muffed the ball, O'Connor scoring. Washington's lonely run came in the third, Donovan and Selbach drew pass es, moving up on Gettman's sacrifice and on Anderson's out, Childs to Tebeau, Donovan scored. It Is a wonder -that Cleveland's score was not much larger. In both the third and fourth Innings Donovan filled the bases with passed men. but luck favored him from any great slaughter. Mercer started the game, but retired in the sec ond in favor of Donovan. The game was without any particular features, and the enthusiasm was at low ebb throughout. Washington's double plays and Gettman's catch after a hard run were the only points of the contest that -were at all worthy of notice. The score: CLEVELAND- AB. R. H. O. A. E. O Connor.

THE CHAMPIONS DEFEATED. A Scene of "Wild EiithuHlnum Fol io vm the Reds' Victory. Cincinnati, Aug. 6. About 7,000 persons today witnessed the first game of the eagerly and somewhat anxiously awaited series between the leaders and the cham pions, next in the pennant race. It was one of tho best played and most exciting games of the season. Veteran Dwyer and young Willis were pretty evenly matched, it proved. In tho last half of the ninth Steinfeldt and Peitz doubled, scoring tho winning run. In the sixth Boston had men on first and third, with none out, but the groat pitching and fielding prevented runs. The players were almost carried off their feet by the enthusiastic crowd and Steinfeldt and Peitz were cheered all the way to the club house.

The payment of Freedman's fines has not been officially stated. Billy Keeler says that bunting Is a very easily acquired art if a. batsman will give the matter careful practice and attention. There Is no deal on between Pittsburg and Washington looking to the transfer of Pa-lden j Washington, says Mr. Wat kins. Scrappy Joyce's Giants are putting up a lively game of ball. Away from the man agerial eyes of the baseball Weyler they attend strictly to business. The game put up by the Senators at Philadelphia on Friday proves what The Times has often said that the team Is capable of playing winning ball. The financial success of the game at Phi'ade.rhia Friday was sadly dlbappoint lng. Tho Cleveland magnate tald ho would have done better at home. Fred Clark, of the Louisville club, has not shot or spiked a man for some time. Ho has the tools to do It with, however, when an opportunity presents itself. J. Earl Wagner is a total abstainer himself, yef he Is not a prohibitionist. He believes that a glats of cool beer Is not harmful to any ball player after a hard afternoon's work. Seeley, of Bcfton, denies that he is af ter Pltuier K-wieri. What he does want Is an out and Infielder with established reputations as finished artists. Where can ho get them? Jack Doyle is quoted as saying that the reason he left the Wasn:ngton club was because there were so many lobsters on it. Jack was the principal lobster while with the team, and a disabled lobster at that. Rushing the growler from S o'clock until 12 in the night and trying to start a beer famine In the neighborhood is deleterious in its effects and will eventually put a ball player out the business, as It makes him stbpid and worthless the next day. Cy Swalm, who has been working hard upon tho home grounds for the past two weeks getting himself in shape for the long series df 'games yet to be played, is socially, mentally and physically in mag nificent condition, and If the team plays any sort of ball behind him he will win the larger per cent of the games in which ho officiates. Wu are told that "Scrappy Bill' served notice on Jack Doylo that he must be seen and not heard on all matters con nected with the New York club. Is this tho great Jack Doyle, the Marshal Ney of baseball, who has been so ignomin lously relegated to obscurity and who once occupied such an exalted position In public opinion? Andy Freedman, through the Tamminy Times, is saying some very naugnty things about Mr. Pulitzer, of the World. With a subsidized dally and a weekly organ and a special deta:l or seventy Hve of the finest of the Metropolitan police, to say nothing of the help he expects from tho National League officials, It dots seem like Andy may avoid the payment of the $1,000 fine which the law demands. An enthusiastic fan was reading in a sporting paper a report of a very disas trous trip the Senators had out West, in which it wa.rstated that the St. Joe team had wiped up tho earth with them. Throwing the paper down, he went into a spasm of violent rago. "'I'll be flam gusted," said he, "if I ever saw anything like It. Going out to St. Joe and letting those havseeders and berry-pickers, who don't know baseball from 'puss wants a corner,' beat our boys like that. It Is a dodgasted disgrace to tho Capital City and wo ought not to stand It any longer." Upon being Informed that the "Senators" referred to composed tho Columbus club of the Western League he said: "I thought thero was a ball muffed some where." A marked copy of tho Tammany Times has reached this office. An excellent por trait of Boss Croker ornaments its nrst pago and a small snapshot representation of Andy Freedman occupies a more ob scuro corner. Mr. Croker has evidently learned sinco his arrival home that his baseball hired man Freedman has been plaj lng Hades instead of baseball during his absence, and that matters around and about the Polo grounds are significant of internal disturbances that threaten un pleasant consequences. Therefore he sig naled the office boy of the Tammany Times to call all the staff to quarters, with instructions to open the port and stern guns of that journalistic cruiser and if possible to cover Andy's retreat. The woods around Harlem have been thoroughly shelled. A brisk cannonading from the Tammany Times' rapid fire guns were directed against the Sun, Jour nal and World.three formidable ironclads, that have had Andy bottled upon the har bor of righteous Indignation, but no dam ago was done, as the "organ" shells went wide of the mark. There seems nothing left for Andy but unconditional surren der. Tho ocean of public opinion is filled -with re-enforcements for the blockading fleet, which makes his escape impossible unless the Intervention of President Young and his league staff opens a way for his safe retreat.

A GONSCIENWUS WORKER HIh Rapid Advancement Into the Front Hanks of the Crude Follow er of the Cinder Path Schade and Le Co in pte Fall VlctlniH to IIIh Proii chh AVorlc on Local Trade. In tho match race tomorrow evening between Jimmy Michael and A. C. Mo ran, the local public has been quite well informed of the little Welsh wonder, thougn but JJttle has been said of the local man. It has probably been thought that Moram is perhaps too well known to need any extended comment, but there are a good many who will attend the race meet tomorrow evening who know comparatively little of the man. He is almost n new rider, having made his first appearance on the track two years ago. and last year was one of the most successful amateur riders of the season. In the fall of 1S95 he did some good exhibition Tiding, establishing the third of a mile track record, unpaced, at the International Park; time, 0:42 1-5. He also won one race, got a place In two others, and won three hea.:s, but he gave no promise of Jumping into prom inence the way he did last summer. "Zlmmy" first began to show his ability at the annual Decoration Day meet nt the Athletic Park last year wihen he wus only beaten by an eyela-ih ifjr the cham pionship of 'the Dlstrtdt by Wilson. It wus a beautiful finish. Qlontn jumped fchft Knrint awnv rntinH frinm the nutiiter Pole. He tirrned 'Into the stretch riding I like a demon, with Wilson close behind. He seemed to 'be winning easily, but jui't about fifty yards from the finish he ap peared 'to slack up, and dn an intrant Wilson had taken advantage of th's and shoved his front 'wheefl a'cross the tape, not more thtm an inch in advance of Moran. On June 23 Moran won three firsts at River View, and on the following day two firsts at the International Park. The first of these latter races was the one-mile handicap, and he was not given much credit for winning, as both Wilson and Halstead fell. However, when he meit both these men In the mile open, and again demonstrated hte superiority by winning, it was evident that It wab not mere luck thut carried him through. Up to this time Moran had not met Schade, and the meeting of tlie two cracks was looked forward to with great expectation. They came together at Frederick onl Julyi 3, and "Zlmmy" came on top both times. Besides Schade, he met and defeated Haytead and Smltli, and all ofi the best of the Bal'I more riders, including LeCompte and Wllkerson. Julyi he came to the front, and captured ihej mile, open in the fast time of 2:14, whlcii Ut"lhe record for the track In competition;' also two-mile han dicap, one-mile team race, and ran sec ond In the mul tlcycld race. Jloran's Great 'Jwo-Mflc Race. These three rareg mode him ten con secutive firsts. HIr -rille in ihs two-mile handicap on mis1 day was something to be long remembered b those wtoo saiw It. He had juat ridden a.iaird hea't, and al raon immcd.a"elye wan called out for tho finals. Macchett nntl ,Wrenn had one hundred nnd twesyty xaitje, and. they set a .terrific pace. ! seomctl worse than Ubeless for the fcsratcih. men fo try and overtake them. Schade evidently thought so, for he dropped out aftttr (the third la.p. Moron, however, plugged on and on ithe very last lap he &hat awuy from Wlllson and George Smith and pass ed m'an atior man, and vt was only -when a few lyards -from hecne that he passed Matohett. It vras a wonderful exhibition of pluck anU endurance, and was only equaltU. by ithe irtiencmensil ride In tho multicycle race. With a handicap of only 200 yards, he apparently waited for the tandem with Schade and Halstead, which passed him at a terrific clip. He, however, caught them, nnd tacked on to their rear wheel until overtaken by the triplet, mounted by Greer, Wilson and Smith, to which he transferred his attention by tacking on to them. In doing this he displayed rare judgment, and despite the repeated efforts of the triples, crew to shake him he hung on to them to within a hundred yards of the tape, "when he sprinted, finishing well up past the middle man, beating tho tandem out by two lengths. This was the occasion for another ova tion to the stocky little rider. From this t!tme on he had one accident after another. He .fell at Stauntn and cut his ear almost entirely off. After the doatfor had sowed it up, 0io insisteu on riding in the final of the mile "open, and Schhdc only ibeai him after a. desperate struggle. He had only begun to recover from the effcot& of the fall when he went to PhJladsaphQa, and in the very first heat in w!rch he eritered he fell on the hard surface of the Willow Grove teack and it twok the surgeon an hour to pull the splh-Jters of iwood out of his head and -arms. On Labor Day. however, in splto of these falls, he won the mile open in one of the prottiest finishes of the year. Moran, George Smfth, Wilson and Schade finished in the order nameU. ami so closely bunched that no one but the judges could tell who had nvon. He received a bad fall at Norfolk shortly after this, from iwhioh he has never fully recovered. His ankle was -badly wrench ed hy being thrown ru'ght thibufh a pickeit fcrace. In spite of this terrible strain he rode at Petersburg the follow ing Saturday, and won seveiial prizes. Defeats Schade and LeCompte. One of the most important of his sea eon's successes was his match race with Schade, whom he defeated with appar ent ease at Georgetown Collese. At Norfolk he established two Virginia Stato records, riding from scratch In the two-mile handicap in 4:36; and also riding In the thcee-mlle handicap in 7:09 2-5. In a local trial against time he rode a quarter ofrsa mile, unpaced, flying start, straightaway, In 20 seconds Hat, which Is a remarkable performance. This year his rjdlngl has not been bo succesbful, but IL is attributed to his training at the beginning of the season for middle-dlstanae work. During last winter a match race for twenty miles was arranged with G:iW. LeCompte, of Baltimore, to take plate in that city. He trained hard nnd faithfully for the event, and when Jhe match came off he easily defeated hs man. The time of the race was a lllttlet over 55 minutes. The time was sIqjv. jving to the fact that both riders Xell, , and were injured more or less. He was looked, un'on as the winner of the District championship race, which was held on June 23, but un fortunately on an adveres report of the local referee, who claimed that he used indecent language in an argument with him, Moran was suspended by the chair man of the racing board, which barred him for the race. A short time after ward he was transferred to the profes sional class. Perhaps his best perform ance this year was the riding of a paced mile, exhibition, in the fast time of 1:15. This was while he was an amateur, and lowered the world's record for the dis tance, which a short time before h.id been made by Wilson. As a professional rider he' has not yet made his mark for sprint events, though this will be only a question of time. Ho has the speed at his command and all that he wants Is a little good luck. He was selected for tho match race with Michael, because it was believed that he was the best rider in the city who could be obtained for the purpose. Picking him from the field of local men can only be re- I Sterling For i HI Fai : if 1 Ul Castelberg, 935 Pa. Ave. garded as a good compliment. It Is cer tain that he would never have been chos en had not his speed been good. Another fact that was In his favor was his train ing for the match race earlier In the sea son at Baltimore. This helped him con siderably. A Conscientious "Worker. Moran has always been a conscientious worker, and his hard .tra'.ning is prover bial among local racing men. During all of last summer, even on the hottest days, when the mercury tried hard to clirab out of the thermometer, he could always be found In the forenoon and in the afternoon, working on the Itrack. Ke rarely rides less than five miles and this nt a terrific pace. His endurance is won derful, and there is no one in the Dis trict that can stnnd the strain he un dergoes every day -when in active train ing. At present he Is working harder than ever, and h'.s dally course of train ing Is rather elaborate. He rises early in the morning, ana In company -With hi? trainer, "Pop" Ringgold, malces a run of tlhree'or four miles, landing on hl3 toes all elf the timeito render the muscles more active and pllahle. Upon his return to the city he is tciven a rub down, and then a good breakfast, mostly of rare roast beef and bread, with very little liquid to drink. After this he visits the track and rides from five to ten miles behind the fastest pace thafcan be furnished him. After a light lunch he returns to the track In the afternoon and rides some more, practicing following pace, and changing off, accomplishing this with no loss of time and no extra exertion on his part. At the same time the pacing crews are trained to suit his wishes, something that will be of val uable help to him In his race Monday evening. Tho president of the Park Bicycle Club, J. D. Lasley, who Is managing the coming race against Michael, stated to a Times representative that he re garded Moran as the best available man to put against the Welshman. "I might add," said Mr. Lasley, "that Moran will most likely surprise everybody by his riding. In training he Is following pace in a beautiful manner, hugging the rear wheel of the front machine, and switch ing off In a splendid manner from one pacing machine to another. While he has been In training for some time, ex treme hard training since becoming a member of the Eclipse team about a month ago, most of his work has been for sprint events. He began the season training for middle-distance events for his race against LeCompte, tho Baltl niorean, which he won. "Since then he has found it hard to get back to eprint -work. He has now been put back to middle dtunce training, with, os I said Ibe'fore, encouraging re sults. It is a case where his hard train ing of the early season has proved fts great advantages. By the end of the week Moron ought to be ob'e To follciw the fastest pace that can be set by a local team, and he .ought 'to be able to go ten imiles in eighteen, minutes, or theretdbcuts. My Idea iwais, -to s-t the fastest local man possible to ride against Michael, ibcoause I leal ceiiaSn iat Uhe race Is going to ibe the eycJcGT event of the city fk far this season. You may de pend -upon it ithat we will put p a good I raca at this end iaf the line, and St we o not win we will come somowhere very near doing so." MCKAEL DEFEATS ifiFDUEEIE.

Tod Sloan today signed to ride the horses of Sydney Paget for the rest of the season. There was some talk of his being engaged to ride for the stable next year, but nothing defi nite was agreed upon. Fears of an Ice Famine. The enormous consumption of laa dur ing the last hot spell has pretty nearly exhausted the stock of Ico in tha city, and unless some vessels arrive very shortly, the people will have to content themselves with taking their drinks at a tepid temperature. It Is to be hoped that this will not happen, as Tharp's pure Berkeley tastes better with a littlocracked ice in it, and it is especially tempting In a mint julep or a high-ball. However, it Is always good in whatever manner It is taken, and though the Ice crop should run short, there is still a largo stock, of Berkeley on hand at 812 F Street.
