Dr William Tlndall Secretary to the
Board of Commissioners has informed
them thnt T W ItlUy and W W Itlley
have iiot jet given bond as required by
law for the use of the fish -wharf Dr
Tindnll further states that the llilejs say
they do not see the need of giving the
bond as it has not been required since
they held the privilege Dr Tindall sug
gests that the opinion of the Attornej bo
obtained upon the points whether the
law requiring the bond and return of one
fourth of the cross amount received for
wharfage IS still In force and whit steps
should be taken to enforce the District s
rights in the matter
Dr Tlndall encloses the following mem
orandum of the law as contained in
Webbs Digest for the Information of all
concerned
The law of the corporation of Wash
ington requires that the owner or pro
prietor of the site established as a fish
wharf and dock shall return to the
Register one fourth of the gross amount
received for wharfage for the use bene
fit and revenue of said corporation Js
this law still In effect It docs not ap
pear to have been enforced since the re
vocation of the charter of the city of
Washington presumably from the fact
that section 14 of the act of the Legisla
tive Assembly entitled An act prescribing
theolutles of certain officers for the Dis
trict of Columbia and fixing their compen
sation approved August 23 1S71 does not
Include that provision
But the act of the Legislative Assem
bly entitled An act to provide temporal-
officers for the cities of Washington
Georgetown and the county of Wash
ington approved June 2 1S71 creates the
office of Register and in s ction 3 pre
scribes that the functions of the several
officers and the duties salaries and fees
of the said several officers slnll be the
same as arc now defined by the acts of
Congress and the Hws and ordinances of
the corporations of Washington George
town and the Levv Court for the offices
and officers of like dtslgnation so far as
they may be applicable and not in con
flict with the act of Tebruary 21 1S71 as
aforesaid 1
The act of the Leglslatlv e Assemblv
entitled An act creating certain offices in
ana lor tne District oi umumuu ami au
thorizing appointments thereto also cre
ates tho office of Register but does not
define or refer to the nature of his du
ties
Section 11 of the act of the Legislative
Assembly of August 23 1S71 before re
ferred to as not embracing the law on
the subject In Webbs Digest does not in
terms exclude that law

the grade of the aley adjacent to the Co

Walter C Allen the Electrical Engi
neer has called the attention of tho Com
missioners to the need of a cable to carry
the District wires across the Navy Yard
Bridge He suggests that the Anacostla
and Potomac River Railway Company lie
requested to make a deposit of J3S120 w 1th
the Collector of Taxes for the cost of
such a cable In reference to the matter
ilr Allen sajs
Several times recently the wires of
this department on the Navy Yard Bridge
have been broken and the fire alarm and
police patrol Instruments connected to
them damaged by the wires coming In
contact with tho trolley wires on the
bridge The telephone company has ex
perienced similar trouble with their
wires the jarring of the bridge by the
passage of the heavy cars over it causing
the wires to break and fall over the trol
lev wires To remove this difficulty the
telephone company has placed Us wires
In a lead covered cable
After several conferences with the rail
road officials they have agreed to pay
for the cable for the District to replace
the Individual wires across the bridge I
obtained a price of 22 0 cents per foot
for this cable from the Standard Under
ground Cable Company who have a con
tract to furnish cable for this department
I therefore recommend that the Ana
costla and Potomac River Railroad Com
pany be requested to make a deposit of
J3R420 to cover the cost of the 1700 feet
of cable needed for the bridge the cost
of Installation will be borne by this de
partment

A new catarrh cure has recently appear
ed which so far as tested has been re
markably successful In curing all forms
of catarrh whether in the head throat
bronchial tubes or In stomach and liver
The rcmdy Is In tablet form pleasant
and convenient to take nnd no special
Becrecy is maintained as to what It con
tains the tablet being a scientitic com
1 lnatlon of Guaiacol Eucalyptol Sangul
naria Hvdrastln and similar valuable and
harmless antiseptics
The safe and effective catarrh cure may
be found at any drug store under name
of Stuart s Catarrh Tablets
hcther the catarrh Is located In the
rose throat bronchial tulies or stomach
the tablets seem to act with equal suc
cess removing the stuffy feeling in head
and nose clearing the mucous membrane
of throat and trachea from catarrhal se
cretions which cause the tickling cough
ing hawking and gagging so annoying
to every catarrh sufferer
Nasal catarrh generally leads to ulcera
tion in some cases to such an extent as
to destroy the nose entirely and in many
old cases of catarrh the hones of the head
become diseased Nasal catarrh gradually
extends to the throat and bronchial tubes
and verv often to the stomach causing
that very obstinate trouble catarrh of the
stomach
Catarrh is a svstcmlc poison Inherent
In the blood and local washes elouches
salves inhnlers nnd sprnvs can nave no

An Internal remedy which nets upon the
blood Is the only rational treatment nnd
Stuarts Catarrh Tablets Is the snfest of
all Internal remedies as well as the most
convenient and satisfactory from a medi

Dr Eaton recently stated that he had
successfully used Stuarts Catarrh Talir

ceration had extended so far as to destroy
the septum or the nose He says I am

Wnlah ns n Bnie Stealer The Score
Hugh Jennings red stockinged warriors
from Cornell proved themselves Inferior
to the Georgetown University balltossers
yesterday afternoon The Ithacans were
defeated on Georgetown Field by a score
of 7 to S The principal feature of the
game was the manner in which the Blue
and Grey was helped along to victory by
costlv errors on the part of the Ithacans
Seven black marks made a dark showing
ror the visitors error column and nearly
everjone was in part responsible for
Georgetowns runs
Fay was on tho rubber for Georgetown
and for the first five Innings he did splen
did work allowing the Ithacans but two
singles After that the representatives
of the red and white began to push out
an occasional timely hit and at the end
of their half of the seventh were one run
to the good
Blewett replaced Fay In the middle of
the seventh Inning and put a decided
crimp In Cornells run getting ability Fay
had pitched good ball up to this point and
six of the Cornell batters had gone to the
bench after vainly having swiped the air
In Georgetowns half of the seventh
Inning Walsh did some daring base-running
nnd scored on a much needed single
by Olinra When his team mates came
to bat in the following Inning two more
runs gave the Blue and Grey a total of 7
and the game closed with the score at that
figure
The day was idenl for baseball and a
large crowd witnessed the game The
Georgetown rooters displayed little en
thusiasm until Cornell tied the r core
Then a little lively cheering was indulged
in After Georgetown was safe once more
the enthusiasm again subsided and not
even the college yell was heard when the
game closed
Cornell went first to the plate Fay
started off by striking out Brewster
Lvon secured a hit but failed to get
further than second The side was re
tired by Robertson and Harvey going out
Georgetown fared worse than the visitors
In their half of the first They did not
get a hit Drill walked to first and got
around as far as the third comer of the
diamond on a wild pitch Connors and
Moran went out on flics and Walsh struck
out
An easy grounder fielded o first and two
Infield flics easily gathered In was the fate
of Drake Chase nnd Costcllo when Cor
nell came to bat Georgetown scored their
first run in this inning An error by Har
vey permitted OHara to ggn the Initial
bag Devlin sacrificed advancing OHara
to second Apperlous drove a long fly
Into deep left where K wrfs muffed bj
Brewster while OHara scared Dowling
flew out to centre and Fays out retired
the ade j
Brewster partially redeemed his muff
of Apperlous fly in tho third by driving
out a single after Brown apd Whlnnery
were both put out tho farmer at first
and the latter on threevstrikes In Cor
nells half of the fourth Brewster ven
tured too far off the first cushon and
was put out by Devlin on a quick throw
by Fay Drill lined out a single In the
third Connors and Maran were then
both put out Moran drpv e out a long fly
of which Lyon made Sensational run
ning xatch Captain YavtanJ proved the
salvation of his team by contributing a
single which scored Drill Then Walsh
stole second and befqreenvone realized
It had purloined the third cushion
OHara walked to first and then Devlin
smashed out a single scoring Walsh
OHara was cut off at third
Neither team made a score or a hit in
the fourth and not a runner progressed
farther than first base Fay struck out
Chase and Brown In the fifth and Cos
tellos out retired the side
How to Help the Other Side Get Runs
was tho principle which the Ithacans
illustrated when Georgetown came to
bat Connors flew out to right field Mo
ran secured a single and the comedy of
errors began when Walsh drove a high
fly right into the hands of Brewster who
dropped the ball Moran reached second
Chase tried to catch him napping at sec
ond but was unsuccessful The ball hit
Moran on the thigh and rolled Into the
outfield while he galloped home and
Walsh who had been waiting on first
reached third in the meantime The
Ithacans then braced up and retired the
side in quick order
The visitors went to work In clever
style In the sixth Brewster and Lyons
were both hit by pitched balls Robert
son scored the former with a single and
himself went to second when Harvey
walked to first Drake scored Ly on on a
timely single and Robertson was cut off
in a daring slide to the plate Chase re
tired the side by striking out Apperlous
donated a single when he stepped to the
bat for Georgetown but was forced to
stand on the initial bag while Dowling
Fay and Drill went out In order
- Cornell went one point to the good in
the sixth and their followers in the
grandstand did a little rooting Costello
went to first on a hit and was advanced
when Brown walked Whlnnery made the
only two bagger of the day and Costello
scored Brewster hit an ensy grounder
which Tny Juggled permitting Brown to
score Blewett then went in the box in
place of Fay Lyon hit a high fly to
tnm TinhprtRnn ilrnve out a long one
and It looked as If it woald roll Into the
gully west of the grounds nnd be good
for a home run Apperlous made a long
sprint and a sensational catch of the lly
which won him plaudits Whlnnery scored
after the lly had been caught Harvey
then flew out to Moran
The Georgetown rooters began to cheer
but at first their enthusiasm seemed to
have little effect Connors and Moran
both went out on outfield flics Captain
vvnish htintid and beat the ball to the
base He then stole second and also
third by the boldest kind of base run ling
O Hara scored him with a single and the
score was tied OHara stole second Just
before Devlin made the third out of the
Inning One two three was the way the
Ithacans went out In eighth
hen Georgetown came to bat Apperl
ous opened up matters with a single
Dowling galiicil first on an error by Cos
tello nd Apperlous scored when Robert
son threw wild over Costello s head He
was followed across the plato by Dow
ling Thus Georgetown was two runs to
the good and so thq gamo closed After
that the batters were retired as fast as
they went to the platej Cornell was un
able to place a man oni first In their half
of the ninth The score

FAVOR THE OLD RXIXE
A Batter Get a axe When Hit
by a Pitched Ball
President Nick Young said last night
that he had received replies from a ma
jority of the league clubs favoring a re
turn to the old rule giving a plaver his
base for being hit by a pitched ball un
less he plainly avoided making any ef
fort to get out of the way of the ball
from the pitcher and thereby permitted
himself to be so hit
This rule was abolished at the spring
meeting but so many protests have been
made against It that the question wa3
submitted to the different clubs In View
of the replies already received the rule
will undoubtedly be reinstated

Street New York has been purchased at a consider
able reduction on regular prices and is offered begin
ning this morning just as we secured it
The purchase is the largest that has ever been made by any local concern and
the sale is important becans e the clothing is of the very highest grade in mate
rials and workmanship and because it is offered at much lets than regular prices
2sine out of ten clothiers making such a purchase at this time would put it in reg
ular stock- and get regular prices for it fearing that such a sale would interfere
with the selling of their regular stock which at this time is necessarily at its best
We have taken no such view for we know that we shall be able to turn these
over to you in a hurry and in doing so we shall make a host of friends
Every garment in the 4000 goes in the sale tables are stacked high with them
the front windows have been filled to gie you an idea of the very great values
As stated above this clothing is of the very highest grade for this concern
makes no cheap garments and we unhesitatingly stand back of eery sale by guar
anteeing you satisfaction as to the wear the workmanship and the lasting ap
pearance of every suit
