Tho wcnlhcr was raw and blustery to day and in consequence tho crowd that watched tho runners was considerably Munllcr than usual, although tho racing was excellent. Notwithstanding tho chilly weather a number of Indies wcro present, nttracted by the stccplcchaso for gentlemen riders. This was tho social event of the meeting nml ottractcd a large number of society people. The betting was brisk and the belting ring was crowded by tho men, who found it the most convenient place to keep warm. Six races were on the card, five on the lint and one over the hurdles and all the fields were large. Ycstcrdny'si Duces. First llacc Mirabonu was thought to bo a good thing In this race and was well played, although Lotion and Gypscy Queen were fancied. Syracuso lumped into tho lead at tho start, however, and was never headed, winning by half a length from Mlrnbeau, Gypscy Queen third. Second l'acc Kxclusion was made tho favorite, and tho race was between her and Coldstream, and sho won by a length without urging, with Cutalong in third place. Third ltn.ee L'lnlriguanto was tho only thing in tho Potomac Handicap. Mabel was also well played, cspcciallv for the pla'ce, and n few thought My Fellow had a chance. Bclisarlus made the paco and got off well in the lead, but coining into tho stretch the Morris fill' ran away and won handily, Mabel getting the place from Bclisarlus. Fourth Dace Oppressor was a big favorite, nlthougli Ninnoc was heavily played. Thiers L, made tho running and was leading in tho stretch, when he com menced swerving, and Oppressor cot tho decision by one and a-half lengths,"ThIers L. second, OurOwn third. Fifth Itace Hercules was of course a favorite, Pal Oakley selling second. Dela ware led to tho water jump, when Pope commenced riding and put Hercules to the front, and ho galloped homo an easy winner, Delaware second and Oakley third. Points from tlio l'niltiock. Fred Miller pulled off a good thing" with Syracuse. The horso was tipped for 1, 'J, 3 tho day previous but showed no sur prising form. The Queen City stable had to vav a pretty penny to save Hercules. He was entered in the steeplechase to be sold for $l,f)00, and after the race an effort was made to buy him in ami the price was run up to 1,G10. Delaware wns well played in the steeple chase at 7 to 1. The judges have decided that Day did not intentionally foul Bellevue in tho l.owlandcr race of Tuesday. 'Intriguante has proved an excellent filly at any distance up to seven furlongs. Fergus, n five-year-old gelding belong ing to Clark Maxwell dropped dead on tho track at the conclusion ot tho second race. Oppressor rewarded his backers yester day by taking an easy race. The Dumblane Hunt Club will hold its third race meeting on the Ivy City track on Thursday and Saturday of next week. EAST WASHINGTON. CAPITOL HILL. If any person over makes the assertion that the East End has not aa many pretty iiirls within its bounds as any other sec tion of tho city ho will make an error. At least it seemed so to a Critic-Hecord man who dropped into tho Virginia ave nue Masonic Hall last night upon tho oc casion of the reception given by the A. L. and S. Club to th'eir gentlemen and lady friends. The second lloor contained about forty of the prettiest maidens who over graced a reception room, and the gentlemen present deserve credit for their successful efforts to mako the occasion one to be remembered by the guests.

William L, Crounsc, tho correspondent of the Now York HorW, for whom a war rant was issued yesterday afternoon for criminal libel, at tho instance of Dr. Wil liam A. Hammond, came into the Police Court this morning and gave himself up. He was accompanied by his counsel, Mr, Alldrcw A. Lipscomb. Tho warrant had not been returned when Mr. Crounsc called. Ho simply wanted to know how much bond would be required, nnd ho was told that $500 se curity would bo sufficient. Mr. Crounso went out with his attorney, and returned nn hour later with John Joy Kdson, who went on the bond. Thocaso will probably bo called some day next week. COMMENCING WORK ON THE NEW FOURTEENTH STREET CABLE RAILWAY. The First Rail Will lie Laid Next Hon tiny Many Dllllcult Feats of En glnee ling to be Performed In the Stringing of tlio Cable Around Curves. On Monday morning tho civil engineer, Mr. D. 8. Carll, who will superintend tho laying of the new cable railroad, will go to tho top of tho hill at Fourteenth street extended with a largo force ot workmen and begin the work of laying the new cable road, Tho reason assigned for going out Four teenth street first is to accommodate the city officials, as they will shortly begin the concreting of that street, and the work can be completed In much less time after the cable tracks arc laid than it could be done prior to that time. Mr. Carll says that when the work is once begun it will bo pushed forward with the greatest rapidity and that when the track and yokes are put under ground as far as Florida avenue the work on that section of the road will bo stopped and commenced at Georgetown mid pushed through to the Navy Yard. In this route some fine mapping out of work by the civil engineer has been done as there aro twelve ugly curves, nnd tho difference of half an inch in the width of the laying of tho tracks would wreck a train. But in this matter Mr. Carll has shown his training and experience and every unncuiy or oostacie, nomatter now great, has been overcome, and when tho work is finished Washington will have a cable road second to none in the country. When the Market street cable was laid in Philadelphia the press of that place thought that the most difficult cable track had lieen laid, as at tho foot of Market street, the terminus of the road, the track, turns in Mich a manner as to form tho letter U. At that time that was the most difficult plcco of work of its kind ever done, but thn road here between the Navy Yard and Georgetown, will contain two S shaped curves, and on Fourteenth street from New York avenue, there is one, al though not so short as either of the curves on the avenue. Tho work of laying the cable proper through theso curves will be no small job. "Tho majority of persons have no idea of half the amount of work to be done iu laying a cable," said President Hurt to a Ciimc-Rr.cor.i) reporter. "There are openings at regular intervals, say twenty to thirty feet, to be made to allow the oil ing of" tho little wheels on which tiie cable passes and the putting in of theso wheels is nn important part of tho work and has to he done with the utmost cau tion and precision. "If some of tho people who are un acquainted with the modem street rail ways would go to tho Seventh-street power house and see the work which is being done there, their eyes would open "Has the cable been ordered yet?" "Not yet; but as soon as it is convenient the tcn-milo niece of wire will be shipped." "When do you think the road will bo completed and the cars put on? " "That is hard to say, and as yet we cannot even form tho remotest idea. Work on the Georgetown end will be de layed some time, and while tlie authori ties aro lowering the six-inch water pipes on Bridge street we will be at work at Mount Pleasant." m TORPEDO WARFARE. Coiiiniiiixler Folgcr on tlio Work of tlio Almlranto I.yncli. As appeared in yesterday's, Critic Rr.coni) the subject of torpedo warfare is engaging lively attention in naval circles; but until a delinite circumstantial narra tive of tho encounter of tho new Chilian torpedo vessel Almirante Lynch, with the rebeb battle-ship Blanco Encalada, is forthcoming, even tho best informed of llccrs will hardly be prepared to give a conclusive opinion. It must bo remem bered, too, that it has been a long time since there was anything like a naval battle. The nearest approach to It has occurred in the little warfare In the Chilian waters. Hence tho effectiveness of modern-equipped torpedo boats al ready displayed, and which may yet still further be shown in the Chilian war, is remarked with the greatest interest by naval authorities all over the world. Commander Folger, chief of the Bureau of Ordnance of the United States Navy, flunking of tho Almirante Lynch exploit, says: "The Blanco Encalada had n very pjor im(i-torH'do armament, but seven ma chine guns and four other light guns, in cluding boat guns. She had no torpedo nets nnd poor search lights, if any at all. We also know that sho was out of ammu nition for her small guns, so that her anti-torpedo battery had practically ceased to exist. Her bottom was very foul and she could not steam rapidly or maneuver well. She was therefore at tho mercy of the Almiranto Lynch, a new vessel re cently tested, fresh from the hands of her builders, iu perfect order and perfectly equipped in all departments. Look at the contrast between tho Illanco Encalada and the new battle-ships being built in this country. These battle-ships are to have twenty-four anti-torpedo boat guns, effective at great range. They will have double search-light outfits, sweeping tho horizon in every direction, and will bo supplied with tho best torpedo nets. "'The range of the guns will not be lim ited by the torpedo, which Is so limited iu range as to make it always subordinate to the gun. These battle-ships are being built for use at a distance from the enemy's ports, where his torpedo boats cannot come. They must be built to light other battle-ships. Naval war Is not di rected against an enemy's ships alone, but against his forts ns well, nnd hero artillery must bo used. Torpedo boats are not to bo neglected, however, and my Idea of n lighting unit would bo to have each battleship accompanied by two torpedo vessels, which would steam behind her, and in action would keep off tho enemy's torpedo boats, leaving the battle-ship free to use her guns acainst similar vessels be longing to tho enemy. Torpcdos aro of great importance as auxiliaries, hut they will always bo subordinate to guns on ac count of their limited range." i i MiirrliiK) t'luoiisort.

Gossip of the Green Diamond AVIint tlie Players are Doing In Oilier Cities Talk of the Field and the lltenchlng Iloarffs. It wns a cgld day for tho St. Louis and Washington teams. to plny ball yesterday, but just n little too frigid for tho Nation als. Forsoven innings it looked justas easy for tlio new homo team. Only one error had been made, tho fielding ww brisk and clever, and tho batting looked strong enough for a very credltablo vic tory, llakcly was pitching masterfully, only two hits having been made off his delivery. The turning point which chilled tho onco warmed-up bleachers cninc iu the last half of the eighth inning nftor two men had easily gono out. Then third bascmnn Lyons of tho visitors drove a long liner in centre Held for two bags. McCarthy sent one like a shot ngnlust the nnntomy of Bnkcly nnd mado first beforo the hall could be recovered. The laltor would havo been caught on a steal to sec ond had Hatfield held McGulro's quick assist. Comisky brought his colleagues ncross the plate with another clean two bnggcr, nnd scored himself on n daring run on a ball driven to short right Held by Boyle and one over which Dowd fell in his eaecrness to make tho Play. It was net an unpardonable accident, but it proved bad enough to clinch tlie winning inn. Tho score by innings: Washington.. 0 0 1110 0 0 0-3 St. Louis 0 10 0 0 0 0 3 x 1 Earned runs St. Louis 2.

McGuiro ought to have known belter than to throw to second when two men wero out and a man on third. It was a bad error of judgment. Stivetts will pitch for the Browns to day. Comiskcy was equal to the occasion and to him is due a great deal of credit for tho victory. Tho Columbus Club mado an attempt yesterday to restrain Third-baseman Charles G. Reillv from playing with Pitts burg. No injtwition was granted, but the ease will Lfefheard on its merits in the Court of Common Pleas next Saturday. President Kramer has Issued tho fol lowing instruction to all the umpires: "You are hereby instructed to forbid any interference with tho performance of your duties or with your decisions by any manager, captain or player of any of the Association clubs. You will also prohibit them from engaging in any argument or discussion with you in regard to your de cisions. In case of any violation of this order you will impose tho necessary fines. I am determined to prevent wrangling and quarreling with all the umpires upon tho ball Held. At tho same time you will refrain from any arbitrary action and conduct yourself with coolness and sound judgment. I am resolved to sustain tho the umpires as long as they discharge their duties faithfully, intelligently, hon estly. You will, on ail occasions, require tho captain or nianagerand all the players to remain iu their proper position on tho field. If this order does not have the de sired effect 1 will recommend to the As sociation to clothe the umpires with the additional power of suspending any nlavcr. eaiitnin or manauer for a noriod not ex cccil inc ten days as a penalty for violation of these instructions." I.oh man, the new catcher, will be hero to-day. Anson seems io be doing pretty well for a man who is playing his twenty-llrst sea son. Everybody is satislied with Pop Smith at third and Burns in tho mlddlo garden. Bakely's delivery was excellent, but his fielding on two occasions was absolutely stupid enough to take the heart out of a pitcher's support. Hatfield doesn't seem to be able to hit the ball at home. Dowd played, Melded and batted beau tifully, as usual. Two line, clean, singles and one of tho prettiest bunts ever mado was tho way he led at the bat. But it wns a pity ho fell down. After all it was a good game. The team of the visitors showed tho capital good stuff of which it is com posed by tho manner in which, after it seemed Impossible to bat Bakely's de livery, by tho way in which' they snatched success in the eighth inning. The locals outbattcd tho visitors. It should not bo forgotten McQuery Is playing first base without a Haw as well as hitting the ball hard. A New Itellof Association.

NCVJ YORK, H. Y, SOUTH WASHINGTON. Captain VV. E. Stuart stales that the coldness of tho water docs not account for the fact that iish are coining to tlio market iu small quantities just now. This Is a point upon which the experts are at var iance, n great many people maintaining that tho supply of llsh is affected by the weather. Mr. Francis Itcesidc, lato expert inspec tor of asphalt pavements for the District, has gone to lirigantino beach, near Atlan tic Citv, where he will remain until next fall. At Rescue Mission last night tho ser vices were led by tlie Rev. Air. Parker, from the southeastern section of tho city. Mr. John Barnes will lead to-night. On E street, in front of the police sta tion, yesterday afternoon, Charles It. Riley wns taken In tho act of dellverini hie chunk of tho celid commodity, win he distributes from one of the big yellow waeons of tho Kennebec Ico Companv It was not a policeman who performed the ceremony, however, but Mr. Riley's big tide-partner, Thomas V, Halley, who used n photographic camera for tho pur pose. 1 hose who have seen the picture aro unanimous in praise of the artist. The attitude of tlio central figure likewise comes in for much admiration. He stands with his eyes lifted in the direction of an imaginary purchaser and his left leg is extended for a firm yet graceful stride, while tlie aforesaid chunk dangles with airy grace from his good right hand. It will be astonishing if there is not a big demand for the photograph on the part of the gentler sex. "Close betting at long range is the surest way to come out on top," said a South Washington sport tit Monte Carlo yester day, as ho buttoned his coat and struck a bee-line for homo after figuring in live races without having staked a copper on one. Something didconio very near dropping at Benning's yesterday, inasmuch as iler cules stumbled at the last hurdle. How ever the old rellablo gathered himself in time to curb Delaware's vaulting ambi tion, nnd South Washington's wad re mains intact. The iceman presents a desolate and dreary appearance as' ho sneaks in and out of tho various business houses in the southwest on these frosty mornings with icicles a ynrel long swinging from his dilapidated chin whiskers.
