The spring meeting of tho Washington
Jockey Club was brought to a close to
day. 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.

This is tho last chance to get even.

which she lins started.
The two-days extra racing announced

other stables.
It has been a highly successful meeting.

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.

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

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

"Slilloli" Next Week.
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.

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. Lndies' matinee, Tuesday,

could othcrwlso bo done. 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

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. They mndo 13 hits with a
totnl of 23 bases, and on thu bases did as

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."
