AMUSEMENTS.
"Slilloh" at tho National.
' The success of this beautiful play In
creases nightly, and it is certoinly well
deserved, possessing as it does so much of
dramatic element. All plays which tell
a ttory affectingly, appealing to human
nature, make tho strongest impression
upon the auditor, and when joined to
grand scenic display as "Shiloh" is, must
necessarily draw largo crowds of people.
This week closes its performance at tlio
New National Theatre, but we have uo
doubt it could run much longer.
Chance of Ulll at Kcrnan'a.
Among tho new features that will be
introduced at Kernan'a Theatre to-night
arc fresh pictures of tropical luxurianco
; and Oriental splendor, in which the Creole
belles and Kgyptaln beauties will appear
in the most lavishing, exquisite and novel
costumes. Besides an endless variety of
new songs, a number of new sensational
lances will be introduced, adding to the
;ulrcady charming entertainment an irre
sistible charm. The Creole and Egyptian
dances, possess a degree of superiority
aver other terpslchorean artists that is
due perhaps to captivating abandon, com
bined with native grace aud astonishing
skill. Nimble, unerring in executions,
the Creolo or Egyptian whirls around
dreamily, but swiftly, imparting to every
movement a thrill of delightful enthu
siasm that steals over nnd enchants tho
bewildered spectator.

Wretched Fielding (lives the Cincinnati
Team nn Overwhelming Victory
Tito Locnl Men llndly Demoralized
What the Oilier Clubs Hnvo Done
Diamond Dust,
The biggest crowd, except the ono which
witnessed the opening game, of tho sea
son thronged National l'ark yesterday
nftcrnoon tosco tho home team take a
gnmc from Kelly's Cincinnati team, They
were disappointed, for the local men gavo
an exhibition that was positively disgrace
ful. Thero can bo no excuso for such
playing, and when managerial incapacity
contributed to the demoralization of tho
team, as was so plainly evident, It was n
foregone conclusion that his men wcro
destined to an overwhelming defeat.
Miller was put In to pilch, and tlio first
two men who faced him gave easy oppor
tunities for outs, but Hatllcld and Loh
man mado tho rankest kind of errors. It
was horrlblo support, and tho Jcrsiy
twirlcr lost his head. The noxt man went
to his base on balls, and Canavan made n
triple, clearing the bases. A couplo of
passed halls, n base on balls, aud a single
sent in another run, and then Manager
Snyder concluded it was time to take
Miller out, and did so, substituting Maco.
Krrors were as plentiful as hits, however,
niul when tho inning ended -Cincinnati
had seven tallies, liases on balls, two
errors, and threo hits gave them four mora
in the second, and Mncc gavo wav to Hat
Held, who, for the remainder of tho game,
pitched creditably.
Crane, under tho circumstances, proved
well nigh invincible, and was Given al
m rst perfect support.
When tlio slaughter ended the score was
17 to 2, and by innings It.is as follows:

Manager Snyder not only demoralized
tho team, but made the worst possible
move he could, when he took Miller out
of the box.
Do not blame tho pitcher. That only
two runs we're earned by the visitors
shows where tho blame belongs.
Four errors and two passed balls, with
only one hit, ore hardly sufficient, Man
ager Snyder, to justify a change of
pitches.
Crane outdid himself yesterday. Tho
long lead his club had was sullfeient to
e.ncouragc the veriest amateur to pitch
winning ball.
President krawcr has written to Presi
dent Von der Ahe that everything looks
favorable for a decision in the J'eilly case
in their favor. If the decision goes that
way. President Von dcr Ahe will light for
Pitcher King, as it is a similar case, and
uv lunula jiu uuu will 11.
The League had lots of changes yester
day. Boston tied Chicago for ilrst place,
Philadelphia aud Brooklyn were tied for
third, and New York and rutsbnrg for
fifth. Thero wero several bad dumps.
Cleveland has dropped to soventh place.
Foreman and McCulre will be in the
points to-day.
"Kel" was so glad to win yesterday
that he amused tlio spectators in'ghlv by
his buffconroy.
Tho strong University of Pennsylvania
nine is being sadly weakened. Yesterday
tho Louisvitles signed big Jerry Darragh,
their first baseman, and on noxt Monday
Watts, the left-llclder. leaves the team to
play in die Western League. Watts and
Darragh aro big men, weighing over 180
pounds, and standing over six feet. They
are fair fielders and hitters.
Every man on tho team yesterday mado
an error except limes and McGuire. It
was a horrible exhibition of fielding.
Pitcher Frank Foreman, who lias just
signed with the Washington Clnb, paid a
visit to his former home in Woodberry,
yesterday. In the afternoon says tho
Baltimore Hun ho donned one of the
old gray uniforms in which he did such
successful work for the Orioles in 18S9,
and practiced in Vnion Park. Ho says
ho is in fine condition, and is anxious
to get a chance in Washington. "I am
glad of my change," ho said, "because
Washington is so near Baltimore, and I
can sometimes visit my relatives in the
playing season. I have not been allowed
to pitch a single camo in Cincinnati this
year, although 1 have played in tlio out
Held several times. The trouble with tho
club is that it lias two factious which aro
working against each other, and it was for
that reason that I was released. Tho team
is playing very poorly, and no ono need
be surprised because It is at the tall end of
the League. Latham is captaining tho
club excellently and is in great form this
season. I do not propose to surrender my
rights under the threo years' contract 1
signed will) ex-President Stern, and I can
compel its enforcement If I desire." Fore
man expects to report to-day in Washing
ton, with whoso club ho signed at the rec
ommendation of the St. Louis olllcers.
He was delayed on his trip cast by a rail
road accident at Newark, Ohio. Fore

Secretary Munson of tho Browns, who
os President Von der Aho's representative
has taken on aclivo part in tlio affairs of
tho Cincinnati Club, has received advices
tliut Sunday games will be played hereaf
ter regularly in that city, Petitions to
counteract Mayor Mosby's stand against
the games have received 10,000 signatures,
and Mr. Munson believes that many more
can bo obtained, if necessary. "Tho
theatres are open in Cincinnati on Sun
day," he said, ''and the people, if allowed
access to such amusement resorts, want to
have baseball also. They object to unfair
discrimination, and If a popular vote wero
taken on tho subject, they would dccldo
in favor of Sunday Tjanies by a great ma
jority. Hereafter the players will bo ar
rested and lined small sums after every
game, but the exhibition will not bo in
terrupted." President Von der Alio expressed hltn
scf severely about tlio umpiring of Mat
thews after tlio game yesterday. Ho com
plained, according to the Baltimore Hun,
especiallv about tho decision on Fuller's
hit In the third inning, aud at once telo
graphed to President Kramer of tho
American Association as followt,: St,
Louis formally protests to-day's game.
Matthews decided unfairly against St.
Louis. By a decision, not allowing a fair
hit ball, good for a home run, Matthews
robbed St! Louis of two runs. Captain
Comlskcy notified him that under tho un
fair decision he would protest the gamo,
nnd only played it out on those grounds."
Mr. Von dcr Alio said; "It was a pood
came of ball and my men would have
hnd n hard tlmo to win without having to
play ngalnst tho umpire. Matthews is
against St. Louis for reasons best known
to himself, and 1 was told beforo 1 came
hero that 1 would bo robbed. Ho isn't lit
to bo an umpire, and I was against his
appointment in tho first placu. I just
want to teach him n lesson. Maybo our
protest won't go. but Matthews will surely
receive instructions .that ho must lni
piovo In his work. I don't caro so much
about losllig a game, but I don't llko to bo
robbed."

The young men of South Washington
seem to have almost lost the spirit of tlio
days when this section produced sonio of
the best amateur baseball clubs that ever
played in Washington. Ouo reason for
tliis is the fact that tho former grounds

Arsenal grounds, however, may bo used,
and on tho Hats there are level stretches,
which might easily be put in excelleut
shape.

The statement made that the Junior

ladies' reception in Washington Hall last

joyable evening is promised, as good
talent has been secured, among them
being Messrs. Frank and George Dcpro,
the well-known comedians. Those
quarterly receptions have been largely
attended, -and the monthly stag parties
never failed to bring out the members
and their friends. This reception will be

next season will be held in September or

He will probably be charged in thoPolico
Court to-morrow with assault on James
Watson, a negro.
Sanford struck the negro last night nnd
knocked him down. Then, it is alleged,
that he kicked him a number of times
and when Special Officer Richard Ander
son attempted to interfere he cursed him.
Anderson had him arrested. After fining
tho officer Judge Kimball suspended
sentence.
Conl n Surrenders Himself.
John R. Collin came into the Detective
Office last night and gave himself up. Ho
is wanted hero for the forgery of a check
for S20 on Darius Baldwin, the South
Washington grocer. The name of J. W.
Morris, the patent attornoy, was signed to
the check, on which it is alleged he got ft
lot of groceries and money.
Mr. Coflln has been in Now York for
two weeks and he told Detective Mat
tiugly that as soon as he heard of tho
charge against him ho started back to
Washington to answer it. He did not
have the money to pay his faro ond ho
sold his clothing to buy a ticket. Collin
was locked up in the First Precinct Station
to await an investigation of the charge.
He is in very poor health and o physician
from the Emergency Hosnital is attend
ing him. "
CRIMINAL COURT.
Tho MeCIclIanrt Trlnl.
Today was the fourth day of the Mc
Clelland manslaughter trial in the Crim
inal Court and considerable of the morn
ing session was taken up with tho cross
examination of tho defendant by District
Attorney Cole. Tlio witness told of on
assault that Benton committed upon him
in Cohen's saloon on Virginia avenue,
and thai tho proprietor had to pui, Ben
ton out and keep his place closed up for
two hours in order to avoid a disturbance
Benton also assaulted him at tho corner
of Seventh and D streets south west shortly
beforo this and declared his intention of
doing him up.
McClelland testified that ho was not
owore neither did ho supposo that Benton
was jealous of his (McClelland's) atten
tions to his wife. He admitted that he
had met her quite frequently beforo tho
shooting and several times after he had
been admitted to bail, but he thought ho
had a right to as she was living apart from
her husliand.
McClelland stated in direct testimony
that he had never pulled a revolver on
any ono in his life, but acknowledged to
having had somo trouble with n man at
Fanny Blair's that did not amount to
much,
William C. Drury, the commission
merchant, was called to testify as to tho
characterof Benton, but District Attorney
Colo objected to its admissibility. Mr.
Smith argued that it was proper to show
that Benton was a dangerous person, but
Judge Bradley sustained tlio objection,
John II. Mugg swore lie was present In
a restaurant on Seventh street, when
Benton was beating his wife, Ho aud
McClelland separated them and Benton
accused McClelland of hitting him In tlio
head with a catsup bottlo aud threatened
that he would get oven with him.
Nathan Cohen testified as to tho threats
made by Benton toward McClelland in his
saloon on Virginia avenue. Ho used vilo
names, and said lie would get satisfaction
if it cost him his life.
Tliero 'was recently exhibited in Dublin
a new burner for lighthouse use, possess
ing twice the illuminating; power of the
largest burners now employed. It is cal
culated Unit this now burner, in connec
tion witli a specially doviscd system of
lenses, will transmit a light equal to
about eight millions of candles, which far
exceeds tho most powerful light at present
used.
At n prayer meeting ono brother prayod
that tlio Lord would "carry tho lambs In
his bosom and lead t hem on to greater vic
tories." Another that "tlio wheels of the
Gospel chariot should go to tho hearts of
sinners," Still another asked tho Lord to
bo ''a father to the fatherless nnd a widow
to tho widowless."
At a ministerial conference tho pre
siding olllcer announced that F.liler II.
would, at tho afternoon session, read a
paper on "Tho Devil," and added: "l'loaso
bo prompt in attondnnco, for ltrothor II.
has n carefully preparod paper and is full
of his subject."
