A lady at whose house Mrs. wharton f i?nd refuge after leaving the Windsor Hotel says that she saw her as she came all the way down, und that there were no firemen present at the lime, it is also true thai there were no lire escapes on the.Fifth avenue side of the hotel? only the lifelines'. It could not be pos? sible, therefore, that Mr.?. Wharton was the lady who was caught four stories above the ground and brought down on the tit" escapes. This must have occurred either on Forty-sixth, or Forty-seventh streets. Letters from other parties describing enses of res? cue have been, as yet, unable to Iden? tify Mrs. Wharton as the one whom they assisted. Alms lton?e Committee Jiceta.

"The Freemason street Church In Norfolk is one of the most Important and promising in the entire S tilth.

General Manager Thomas .1. Ander? son, of the Tidewater Carnival Asso tla ti?n, receives quite a number of letters every day regarding the Mlschlnnzu, and yesterday received about a dozen communications, some from <'hio, some from Indiana, from people who were not aware that the spring jubili o hud been postponed. There were also several letters in the mail yesterday from Net-folk people ex? pressing regret at the postponement of the carnival and suggesting thai the Mlschlahzd be held in September. Mr. Anderson is fully aware of the great benefit that Norfolk and vicinity will derive from Bitch an entertainment as is contemplated, regardless of the time it is held, and will give the matt all the assistance in his power. How oVcr, it is doubtful if he can give the affair his personal attention, as he is ? ngaged in other matters and may pos? sibly accept a position that has been tendered him that would preclude his aivihg the jubilee the personal atten? tion he would like to devote to it. Mr. Anderson says he hears n great deal about the matter and there seems to he a general desire to hold tic car? nival Jn September. NEW ENTERPRISES. Til!-: GRATIFYING RECORD OF A WEEK.

The erstwhile tall emlers ot tho Na? tional League met the boat makers of Newport News yesterday afternoon at Rlvervlew Park, nnd when tho llnal reckoning was summed up the Senators had crossed the rubber eighteen times, while the Newport News ball tosstrrs-| had scored only a quartette of tallies. The game yesterday, afternoon was practically the llrst contest on the dia? mond in this locality this season. About two hundred admirers of tho sport were present, Including n score or s,> of ladles, and though the game was one? sided, it afforded sport for those who bruved tin- stiff breezes that whistled through tin- grand stand and tie' bleechers. < >f course, n<> one expected to seo Nowuort News win, nnd few there wort who thought that the ship? builders would score. They get on to tin- Senatorial twirier in the fourth, however, and hammered out four runs, tli.ily Inning they succoeded in scoring. SENATORS IN' FINE SHAPE. Tin- Washingtons are fast getting Into National League shape, and it was in? deed refreshing to watch their quick Play- Every man is fast on his feet, Mercer and Casey being particularly heel of toot. Some ->!' the men are still it little sore and stiff, but this will nil disappear in tho next few days, when the Senators will be in condition to keep < ut of tie- mil i ml position._ Arlie Latham, the yre.iicst tun RuTR or that ever went on the coach line, is with the Sonntors, and his couching yesterday was thoroughly enjoyed by the i tow.I. lie was not In the pi ly, but was sent to the bat several times and gave full evidence of ids old-time clev? erness with tho stick, nnd excellent base running.

O'Brien, Who recently hin t his knee, is getting along finely and w ill be back in the play again in a few days. McOllire, the prince of back stops, donned the liver pad for four Innings yesterday nnd gave meat evidence that he is all right for tin- Ivo .season.
