Cleveland Defeated tho Senators Because
of Had Coaching.
Tho Spiders won yesterday afternoon first,
because the Senators ran buses like amateurs;
secondly, beeauso of bad judgment in not
waiting nt the bat, and thirdly, because tho
visitors hit opportunely.
Tetty was in the box for Cleveland, nnd
had tho locals waited many mora of thorn
would havo gone to baes on balls. He was
succeeded in the seventh by Cuppy, just
about tho time the Wnshingtons begun to
realize the importance of pulling themselves
Selbach and Abbey made wonderful catches
in the eighth Inning and their work was re
garded as having won tho game, but in the
ninth Tebeau mado n threo-bngger with Mc-
Kean on first, and ho was followed with a
single by McGarr, nnd the Kpidcrs had one
run to tho rood with but one mnu out.
In the third inning Kadford nnd Mercer
singled. Petty hit bhlebeck and Dugdale
went to first on balls. Tebeau made an
error nnd tho Senators had two runs when
the inning closed.
Mercer's safe hit in tho seventh. Cart
wright's double, Shlobeck being hit by the
pitcher, Dugdale's bae on balls, Ilassamer's
double, nnd McGuire's singlo rulted in
bringing the locals' score up to eight run".
At this stage of the game it looked as though
they had it safe, but they failed to score after
The isitors found Mercer in tho first In
ning. Burkett hit safely and scored on Me
Kean's homo-run drhe. McGarr's triple nnd
McGulre's failure to hold Shlebeck's assist
scored a run In the fourth.
In the sivth O. Tebeau's triple, Shlebeck's
error and singles by G. Tebeau. and McAIeer
scored two runs. The seventh was a re
peater. Cuppy hitting for a double, Burkett
and McKcnn for singles and McGarr a double.
The Msitors won in tho ninth as described.

EDGERLY GOES TO LAW.
Ue Sues the General Manager and Editor
of tho Washington News for Crimi
nal and Civil Libel.
Agreeably with his promise Prof. Albert
Webster Edgerly, of Martyn College of Elo
cution and Oratory, has instituted criminal
and civil libel proceedings agaln$t the Wash
Edgerly procured from Warrant Clerk
Washburn, of tho police court, warrants for
tho arrest of It. B. Gelatt, general manager,
and Charles Mackey IUppey, editor of the
News, upon tho charge of criminal libel.
The accused appeared yesterday before As
sistant District Attorney Pugh in response to
nerbnl notification that tho warrants had

college, as his counsel.
Meantime, the former pupils of the college,
who hold tho public indignation meeting in
June last, are proecutlng,with tho aid of a de
tective, a vigllnnt inquiry Into Edgerly's past
life. In the course of his quest tho detective
Das. in the past few weeks, visited every city
in which Edgerly is belleed to havo resided.
It is said that a vat amount of documentary
evidence has been secured, which will be
used against Edgerly wheneier an opportun
ity is afforded. The ox-pupils are very bitter
in their denunciations of their former precep
tor iu tho dramatic art, and they, individually
and collectively, assert their Intention to
strew with thorns his path in Washington.
They expect to hold another meeting in the
near future, and Edgerly will beinitedto
nttend for tho purpose of making public reply

choose. Edgerly's father-in-lnw is snld to
havo taken a band in the "matter and is lend
ing tho pupils nil tho aid in his power. His
moth o is said to bo tho disobedience of his
daughter in mnrring Edgerly. to whom he
was violently opposed. The father-in-law
has, it is said, paid the detective for his work
on tho case.

A Suggestion for .Mr. Eckels.
EntTOR Times: The address of Comptroller Eck
els to the ew York State Hankers' Association
alludes to defects in the monetary laws aud
grievances between tho law-makers and the
power at the disiosalof the Secretary of Mate,
but tho Comptroller does not formulate a propa
ganda that would deal with tho business of bank
ing ou the question of currency for a great na
tion. The following incidental version of part of the
English system ot banking may bo of interest at
this period. Therefore for our subject let us
deal with a producer, who, with capital and
credit, obtains possession of a property-produc-inc
crop, cattle, or coal:
This producer in Great Britain goes to the
nearest bank it may be that he is solicited to
go and readily obtains a credit on his note of
hand, which bears a revenue stamp, promising
to pay at a given date. This note of band Is
discounted by the btnker nt a slight advance on
tbo Bank of England rate and probably redis
countcd by a financial house.
The crops, cattle or coal in time pass into the
hands of others (say dealers), probably on note
of band, which the producer's banker discounts
and probably rediscounts The dealer probably
sells on note of hand, which his banker dis
counts and probably re-dlscounts, so that until
the product actually reaches the consumer the
probabilities are no metallic mouey has
passed. Consequently a stack of hay or coal
worth nominally $1,(XX). with the ramifications
cf inter-trade and credit, may on note of hand
represent f 10 0110, or even t2U,0uO in manufac
tured articles the banker making a profit on
The English bankers discount paper with de
positors' money and not with capital. Take the
balance sheet of one bank, say the London and
Westminster. That bank holds current and
deposit accounts representing 123.(W6,3ti0,
whereas the cash tber hold In hand only
represents iS,2?to..1G5, tho difference being
absorbed in circulation under disccunt
and rediscount, and this accounts lor
the enormous volume of banking business that
presents itself daily in Great Britain, which en
ables that country to encompass so much finance
on a gold standard. It is the note of band
with tho ret enue stamp on the face of it that

GOOD DAT FOR THE BOOKS
But Two Favorites Landed the Money
at the Island Course.
CLASSIC HAD AN EASY TIME
The Clio Filly Made a 8how of the Other Two-year-oldi
Opposed to Her, Winning in a
Common Canter Wyoming Upset the Snrs
Thing by Beating Telephone.
The best two-year-old yet seen at the Alex
ander Island track made her first appearance
yesterday In the Clio filly, now known as
Classic. She has won a race or two nt tbo
big tracks, and just before being brought
here worked a half mile in 48 seconds. Yes
terday she opened at 4 to S and was backed
down to 1 to 2. It was only an exercise gal
lop for her, as she won in a common canter
by ten lengths, while Burgeon, another now
one, was second ten lengths before Outsider.
McFonso was last and Murphy looked dis
gusted as he dismounted.
Jockey Neary was blamed for the defeat ot
Telephone, the strong choice for tho long dis
tance race. Donnelly had the mount on
W-oming, and sent" tho latter to the front
from the start, and had a good lead turning
Into the stretch. Neary waited too long with
Telephone, nnd as a result could not get up
to the leader, being beaten a neck.
In the opening race Forest Bird was made
a 1 to 2 shot, and he won cleverly by a half
length from Consolation, tho latter being well
supported for the place. Pilgrim was made
favorite for the third after Criterion's odds
had fluctuated between even money and i to
1. finally closing at tho latter. W. Becket's
Pickaway, with Foster up, was in the race,
and 5 to 1 was on offer, roster didn't do a
thing but hustle Pickaway to tbo front In the
stretch, the latter winning easily from Pilgrim.
Imported Frolicsome Lass opened at een
money for tho last event, but went back to 2
to 1. Tioga's price remained stationary at 2
to 1, while Lyceum's odds receded from
3 to 5 to 1. Tioga led all the way around and
won alter a sharp tussle with Lyceum, tho
latter making a bold bid and was only beaten
a halt length. Summaries:

Mr. Bail thought the committee could very

the new policies offered to them. Tho Indi
cations, he said, were that tho Alliance was
The chairman report!! on behalf of Mr.
Browning that tho committee ought to tako
some positive and affirmative action; for in
stance, that "it is the sense of this committee
that the Endowment Association is still in ex
istence, and that we advise the policy-holders
to continue to pay their assessments.
QUESTIONS OF IJtW.
Mr. Mackey was opposed to making such
declarations, as they involved questions of
law that had been remitted to the company's
attorney. He thought It would bo throwing
money away to pay it Into the coffers of the
Endowment Association until it was shown
there was a chance of getting somethlng.back.
Mr. Miller then took the floor and made some
interesting statements and especially when
taken in connection with tho fact of the al
leged sudden and mysterious dissolution and
sale of the association by Mr. Gardner. lie
"I have taken a great enl of interest in
this matter and I regret that the president is
not present. I havo known Mm for several
years. I have always regarded him as an
honorable gentleman in every scuse of the
term, but I think it Is a duty he owes to this
committee, appointed by 475 policy holders,
that he should havo been here to explain tnis
unfortunate affair: There will be none to do
him more honor than I if things turn out all
right, but otherwise no one will condemn blm
more. I wish to say that a gentleman con
nected with the Commercial Alliance called
upon mo to-day (the vice president). Tho
conversation was on the form of the new
policy, and he expects in a few days to glvo
us further Information and a better policy
when he gets home. He desired to know It
he satisfied this committee beyond contro
versy that the New York company was in
first-class financial condition, whether it
would bo likely wo would go in. I told him
that depended on circumstances. I expect to
near irom nim in a aay or two.''
This, by tbo way, looks like an offer ot
compromise, or at least in tho direction of
conciliation. Mr. Miller then paid his re
spects to Mr. Gardner's letter.
"Now, I have listened with great attention
to the remarks of the various gentlemen, to
Mr. Garener's circular letter, and to his letter
read to-day. It appears that on the 31st
day of December. 1893, Mr. Gardner showed
that he had, by returns filed in the office ot
the recorder of deeds, capital stock jalJ up,
420,000; assets, 583,083.77, and liabilities,
oahdver THoroirr it solvent.
"I understand that ho says that the ap
praised valuation ot the real estate at 519,
554.08, Is below the market value and that it
should be twice that amount. That would
make the assets J103.3S3. and the liabilities
$39,371, leaving still assets to the amount of
$69,617. besides various amounts which have
been collected from the certlllcate-hoiders
from that time up to the present when he
transferred tho company. AU this shows
that Mr. Gnrdner thought the company per

afternoon. Hesajs that wo invited other
gentlemen, but extended nono to him. I
certainly thought nn invitation wonld have
been extended to nil connected with the
The chairman: "We certainly wonld have
been most happy to have bad him. Wo are
Interested in him. He could give us just as
fair a statement as he could to tho press. We
would like to know from him whether we can
have possession of the books so as to com
pare what we get there with his statement
when published. If I understand my in
formant correctly Mr. Gnrdner is willing to
give us any statement that is contained in the
books we ask for, but is unwilling to let the
books go out of his hands. I would move,
therefore, that our committee of expert ac
countants call upon Mr. Gardner with tho re
quest that they be allowed to examine the f-
book. Action nn tnu was deferred.
At this point Mr. Browning explained that
he did not make an effort to see Mr. Gardner
on the day that he had invited the directors
to tbo meeting. Mr. Mackey said that it was
a mistako not to have hail before them "a
man who had been condemned by the direc
tors." Right here Mr. Wolf repented almost ver
batim, evidently, what took place between
him and Mr. Gardner on Thursday night nt
the Shorebam. It is interesting as it out
lines in a certain plnce Mr. Gardner's de
fence, and Is otherwise good reading.
Mr. Wolf snld: "I saw him last night, and
he promised to be present to-dny. He said he
didn't know ot any reason, unless he changed
his mind, why ho should not bo present. I
waited all day, nnd not hearing from bim I
took it for granted that be wouldn't be here.
I think I stayed with bim nearly an hour,
Col. Tracy, an Intimate friend of him and me,
being present. Mr. Gnrdner bad been with
the vice-president of tho committee of the
Commercial Alliance. I said to him that
having heard the statements made before the
meeting and the committee snch statements
ought to be corrected or denied if they were
WOCLD XOT OIVE W THE BOOKS.
"I told him that Director Edson had been
to see me during the dny, and I told him
about tho interview at SomervIIIe's house.
He said that .there must have been some mis
understanding; for ha (Gardner') would cer
tainly not give up the books. Wo could ask
for a statement, and when made he would
allow the experts to compare it with the
books, but he would not allow a regular in
vestigation into the books and papers of the
office. He also stated positively, if he didn't
come, it would be either from the fact that he
was advised not to come, or because he did
not wish to have personal controversy and
altercation with one or two members of the
committee who, as he said, had 'vilified him
publicly.' I assured him that he would bo
just as safe here as in his own home. That I,
as presidents wouia protect mm; mat i wouia
allow no insults to pass, and thatno ono of tbo
committee would indulge in anything of the
kind if he wouldn't forget himself. He said
that an attempt had been made to make a
scapegoat of him, but that if w waited long
enough we would see that if there was any
thing to blame in the matter it would not at
tach to him alone." This last clause was
greeted with smiles by the committee
"Mr. Gardner said that ho didn't know
why this controversy arose. It was a stock
concern. He had investigated tho matter.
He had gone to Now York. He thought tho
Commercial Alliance a bona fldo concern.
That for a year he bad been nearly crazy with
this thing. He didn't care a snap for his
stock. That he was n friend of this people.
Ha had acted honorably and manfully in tho
matter, and ho wouldn't allow any man or
sot of men to placo him In the position of
having his motives impugned and assailed,
because ho had done nothing except what
HE WAS WILLISO TO AID.
"I asked him whether bo couldn't bring
back the corporation to the status before tho
alleged transfer. He said ho diJn't know,
but was willing to aid In that direction it
anything could " bo done If anybody wni
willing to assume the liabilities he was will
ing that it should be done, and he saw no
reason why it couldn't be done except that it
was too late. I said it could bo done. He
said he would consult with the Commercial
Alliance and think the matter over. At the
conclusion of the talk he said: 'Well, I see
no reason why I should not bo present at
your meeting to-morrow."
After this statement the motion to havo the
experts examine the books was withdrawn.
Mr. Mackey offered tho following resolu
tion, which was adopted
"Resolved, That it is the sense of this com
mittee that it would be inadvisable for the
certificate holders of the Endowment Associa
tion to accept at present tho offer of the Com
mercial Alliance Life Insurance Company of
Mr. Wolf then made a personal explanation.

COTEB A CLOCU.
At tho place ot meeting, but not during
the session of tho committee, an article from
the Kew Tort Chronicle was circulated and
rend. This articlo, substantially, expresses
surpriso that tho Washington Beneficial En
dowment Association should havo permitted
itself to "be taken in" by tho Commercial
Alliance Life Insurance Company, of Xew
Yrk. Tho articlo nsVs the Now York super
intendent of insuran;o If he (knew what he
is doing when ho allowed this concern to "re
insure anything." It is niso stated that "tho
superintendent's department is making a
wretched exhibition of itself in withholding
its special report on tho condition of the com
pany." This publication from a reputable journal
Is taken as evidence by tho Endowment peo
ple to mean that tho Commercial Alliance U

fact leaves it under a cloud.
