It has been tho most successful race meeting ever held in this section, not only in n pecuniary senso but from the character of the races. Although there litis been some dissatisfaction nbout some of tho races tho club olllclnls havo worked faithfully to glvo tho public hon est sport and succeeded admirably, Tho club have been exceptionally fa vored with pleasant weather, and to tills cause is due a good deal of its success. Tho attendance has been uniformly large, and the club ofllclals arc thoroughly well satisfied. A contlmianco of tho good weather brought out n largo crowd to-day and tho grand stand was well filled. 'Six races, nil on tho lint, were on the cards, nnd the sport furnished was excellent. Yvstortlny's Itnccg.

It has been a highly successful meeting. AN ENTEM'IUSINti FIItM. Organlnllon of a New tnir ami Iteut Instate I'lirtnurslilp. One of The Cmiic-lttconn's young men, passing along F street, saw at 1331 some new signs, one of which reads, "Chase A Slater, Law and Claims Company," and under this "J. G. Ejlatcr, president, G. T. Chase, secretary; J. II. Kothcrt, treasurer." This excited curiosity, and ascending to tho third floor the reporter found J. G. Slater, one of the most enterprising busi ness men of AVashington, in a handsome suite of five rooms, opening into each other. The rooms were not all completely furnished, but those that were snowed thnt they were being fitted up in good style for law offices. Mr. Slater stated that this company had just been incorporated under tho laws of Virginia for the purpose of prosecuting all classes of claims against the Government and that he intended to press it to the front. As a matter ot fact Mr. Slater is ono of the few men who, no matter what he undertakes, always puts it in the front rank. He is now president of tho Capital Trust Company, of the People's Fire In surance Company, n director of tho Na tional Capital llank, of tho Columbia Title Insurance Company, of tho Capital Brick Company nnd of various other business enterprises, in all of which ho displays almost unequaled energy and business ability. He is well known as one of the most enterprising citizens of AVashington, one of AVashinglon's largest real estate holders, and with Mr. J. II. Kothcrt, a successful business man of Baltimore, is now investing largely in AVashington real estate. Mr. Itothert, the treasurer of the new company, is, as stated, n wealthy Baltimore business man who believes with, Mr. Sinter, that AVashington property is bound to increase In value and that any well selected property pur chased at (i fair price will prove a good in-, vestment. Mr. Hothert is so delighted with AVashington as a residence city that ho expects toremovehis family hercsoon. Messrs. Slater and Kothcrt now have contracts out for tho erection of forty houses in various parts of the city a row on Nineteenth street and a largo numocr on uipitoi inn. Mr. Chase, the secretary of tho com pany, is well known in the city, and was formerly bookkeeper of the Citizens' Na tional Bank. He lias been for somo years engaged in tho collection of claims from the Government, and is thoroughly posted in all tho details of that business. Lately Mr. Chase organized tho AVashington Mortar Company, of which he is secretary, and which Is erecting its works at the corner of South Capitol nnd I streets for the purpose of ninking nnd delivering mortnr nlrcady prepared to builders, a business which every citizen who has to walk around tho huge mortar boxes erected on the streets will heartily wish success. Ho isalso secretary and treasurer of tho American Co-operative Banking Company, which is organized upon tho system of tho postal savings banks. Competent attorneys havo charge of tho law business of tho company. Thut the new company will meet with success there is no doubt. AVitli such a man as John G. Slater at the head of nn enterprise it Is sure to win. Tin: Ciutic ItKcoiii) wishes the Chnso & Slater Law and Claims Company all the success it can desire. Tho forest Glen Hoti'l.

Those who linvo watched the progress of Comic opera in this country will re member thnt one of the most substantial artistic successes was achieved by "Myn heer Jan." The Carlcton Opera Company begin ono week's presentation of this opera next Monday night, and their suc cess with the Mikado gives every reason to expect n most entertaining perform ance. Tho opera offers tho company every opportunity to attain tho most pleasing results. It is ttnlquo in style, both musically and as to tho libretto, ''It is by the authors of "Krmlnie," tho musi cal composer being lCdward Jacobowskl and the librettist Hnrry Pnulton. Musi cnlly tho work shows exceptional merit, Its numbers being charming to tho car, but above tho grndo of thoso which be come so promptly tho property of every street whistler. Tho dory deals with tho time when Holland was occupied by the Spaniards, nnd tlio situations which are evolved aro complicated nnd amusing. W.T. Carlcton is seen lo decided advantage In the role of Karl, a student leader of tho Daisy Gultll. In the second net Mr. Carlcton will sing Molloy's populnr ballad, "Koso Mnrlc. There is n pnrt in tho opcm well adapted to the talents of Miss Jcannio Winston thnt of I'rnneit, which has been assigned to her. J. K.

On Monday night there will be no end of military display at tho National Theatre, in tho production of tho now war play "Slilioh." There will bo enough martial music and gunowdcr to excite tho memories of veterans of the war, whilo thoso who have not had a taste of actual warfare, can seo n very good repre sentation of tho reality in tho battlo scene from "Shiloh," which is said to bo tho most realistic picturo of battlo ever given on the stage. S. C. Dubois, a well-known actor and manager, who's responsible for tho stago production of "Shlloli,'' has been hero all this week, drilling tho su pernumeraries. Thero will bo nearly 150 people on the stago in sonic of the scenes. xcw onu pjcturesquo scenery will ocuscd for the five acts and Seven tableaux of tho production. John A.

Considerable interest amoni the local mllltnry orcanizations is being taken in the production of "Shiloh." Tho Na tional Kifles expect lo attend the opening performance in full uniform. Harris' llljuu. "Irish Luck" is the promising title of the play which will be offered at Harris' Bijou Theatre next week. The company is one of extraordinary merits nnd the play tells a storv which, though simple in plot, cannot fail to bo interesting us well as funny. Owen MeDlllou, a warm-hearted Irishman, comes to this country in search of his recreant nephew, whom ho wishes to apprise of tho fact that he is heir to a fortune. He gets into all sorts of en tanglements incident to n debut in metro politan life, and his mishaps are always ludicrous. Mr. Magec has won many ad mirers through the manner in which he has presented this very amusing charac ter. The company includes an extraordi nary fund of specialty talents. Mr. Magco himself is a very clever artist, and his lightning crayon portraits of prominent men are both interesting and entertaining. There is a great deal ot music and danc ing introduced. Among the songs sung arc "Three Leaves of Mhamrosk." "The Mothers' Appeal to Her Boy," "Winktho Other Eyo" and others that are sure to be popular. Miss Lillie Macey introduces a skirt dance which has never failed to elicit strong demonstrations of apprecia tion. Lots of clever people, with lots of clever work to do ought to make "Irish Luck" a big winner for Harris, Britton and Dean. - Creole nnd Kgyptlnu llcniitles at Kor iiun's. The rarest, most radiant beauties of the two hemispheres, the gems of the Occi dent and the pearls of the Orient, will bo found in Sam T. Jack's Creole Burlesque Company, whicli will open at Kernau's Thcatro next Monday, for one week only, and which is the only organization of its kind on earth. Besides tho most charm ing Creole belles, and the most bewitching Egyptian beauties, thero arc twenty shapely dancers, imported recently from the AVcst Indies, and four merry eunuchs, liberated from far Stamboul. This is n combination of tropical and oriental beauty that is positively without parallel in theatrical history, constituting a genu ine novelty. Scenes of tropical luxuriance and Oriental splendor will charm the eye. The stage-scttlncs are tho most elaborate ever designed. Added to this are the most ex quisite costumes, worn by none but the lair natives of the sunny tropics and the dark-eyed daughters of the Nile, whoso faultless forms are never completely draped, but peep proudly from the grace ful, careless folds of their gauzy mantles. Klch, musical voices of vivacious vocalists will greet the car, singing their strange, sweet native songs with tho delight of nn ecstatic bird. Dances that havo never been seen hero will bo executod by pretty terpsichorean artists, who are nimble and shapely, and who possess a decree of wild, native enthusiasm that is enchanting. A'aried talent is exhibited during tho en tertainment. The beautiful artists en liven a macnificcut first part, contribute to an excellent and refreshing olio, and brighten a resplendent burlesque. They appear in gay gavottes, matchless marches nnd pretty poses, and intensify interest in an endless number of sensations, adding to fresh features a charm that is utterly irresistible.

Bakcly's work in the box was of tho poorest description, but even tho best pitcher would bo unable to pilch any kind of ball, with such sup pott as he received. It was simply a case of how ninny runs tho St. Louis would mnke and tho team from tho Mound City piled up runs until the men were tired, finally stopping at nn even score.

Eleven straight defeats. It was a AVaterloo. Every man but McGuirc took a hand in tlio disastrous work. Maybe a few fines, Manager Snyder, might possibly put some life in your ag gregation. Becchcr and Hatfield made the star play in bad fielding. Hatfield let a ball go through his hands and then Bcecher allowed it to pass him, so that tho batter reached home before the ball was recov ered. Comiskey's boy was one of the sights of tho game. The little fellow, who is not yet 6 years old, amused tho crowd by his ontics'and relieved the monotony of an otherwise poor exhibition. From the display of sprinting shown in tho field ono would judge the Nationals to bo base runners. They aro not, how ever. If AVashington loses to-day it will tic the record for the largest "number of straight defeats ever inflicted on a AVash ington club. Miller has reported and will pitch in to-day's game. Captain Anson came out triumphantly from a general shaking up in- the League yesterday. Ono of tho many changes in standing which resulted from the games placed Chicago in tho lead, and another lowered Philadelphia to sixth place. It is predicted thnt the Phillies will not make much of a showing in the race on account of poor pitchers. Manager Powers of Buffalo says of his offer to succeed Sharslg in charge of tho Athletics: "I have neither accepted nor declined as yet. I am somewhat dis couraged with the meagre attendance at the games in Buffalo thus far. and if it is not to be any better I think it would be a matter of business for mo to accent the Philadelphia offer."
