STAFFORD'S ADDKESS Notably Largo Assemblage of SonB and Daughters of the "Hater Dolorosa of Katiocs" Proiident Koran's Words on Lovo of Country Dr. Shahaa's Thoughts Kelodies by Chores and Soloists. The Ancient Order of Hibernians are an tique in nothing lait their patriotic name. In ail thiugsoise tboy are intensely modem, as was fio pleadingly evidenced by their entertainment last night at the Academy of Music, entitled "An Evening in Ireland." The theater was graced with a notably large assemblage of the Fons and daughters of the country which Dr. Stafford poetically termed the "Mater Dolorosa of Nations." Those who esteem these sons and daughters were alsoliirgely represent edintheaudience. The boxes were draped with the ttars aud stripes, and the hanuors of tlie Emerald Me. Tlte stage was decroated with a chorus of about fitly Ringers, trained for the celebration by Prof. Mania. District PresideutP. T. Morau was the cliaarraanand master of the ceremonies. The guests of liouor were Rev. Dr. D. J. Stafford and Prof T. J. Shaban, D. D., of tlie Catliolic TJmvorslty. -HAIL COLUMBLA" SANG. The "evening" was opened by a fine ren dition by tie Chorus of "Hail Columbia," after which an introductory address was delivered by President Moriin on the origin, history and achievements of the order. He dwelt with esieeial forco on tlie epirit of fraternity of the organization and it broad catholic principles of patriotism, and love of country for their "home" on Uith Bides of the Atlantic. Healeospokortiieerviccs of the Irish m tbe war for thepreservation of the Union, and tlie trust reposed In the representative men of theracobythisuation. He eulogized Phil Sheridan, and men tioned tlie regiments composed bolely of Irish which had done great service in the late war, allof which was loudly applauded. Dr. Shahs u addressed hiawelf to the history or the Irish, and touched upon tbe liberal attitude of the Catholic church to all organizations and societies except Uioae iiMintca! to the church, exemplifying his statement by reference to the policy of tlte church iu the thirteenth century, when tlmt church ruled the world." Dr. Shaban commended the purposes and work of the Ancient Older ol Hibernians. A very interesting part of this address was that in which tbe speaker explained tlie antiquity of tbe Ineh race, following their migrations irom the Tower of Babel to the Atlantic ocean. He said among otherthings that so far as tbe evolution of races was concerned the Irish had as many "long tailed families" as any other nation. DR. STAFFORD'S ADDRESS. Tlie thoughts of Dr. Stafford's address were suggested by the hymn. "The Harp that Once" etc., which be recited with great grace of elocution. He then developed tbe story of tbe harp, the glory 't once oeh'braxed, tbe loss of power rznd prestige of tbe race, and drew a vivid ontiast between the old regime and she Ireland of tbe English. Dr. Stafford paid high ",ribute to the loyalty of the Irishman To 'lie iand he adopts as his own, as is Bhown, '.e paid, especially by tlie devotion of 'be race to the free and glorious condl!io;w of Amer ican citizendnp. Mihs Mamie Donnelly earg very sweetly the "Last Rose of Summer," Mrs. Maina contributed several songs and was recalled several times. Mr. McFarland,JIr.

EHERALD ISLE GLORIFIED Thestomach is belter supplied with blood vessels than any oilier organ of Uic body except tlie brain. Hence the clo'.e rela tion between the two. If the brain be comes congested or irritated in any way blood is drawn from the Momucli that should be there to assist digestion. In many cases of so-called nervous dyspepsia it is not tlie stomach that is at fault, but the great nerve center. Dr. R. A. Walker's great and almostphc nomenal success In tills disticssing dih order lies for tbe mosl part in the fact that be learns the cause of his patient's symp toms, wlille other doctors tieat the symp toms. Many people needlessly lose their lives because they fall into the bands of phy sicians whose work covers, of necessity, "too large a field. A .doctor who has to pull teeth, cut the baby's gums, and saw wood enough to do over Sunday can uotbc a nervologist, as that is a piofeusion by ilself. Dr. R A. Walker, of this cily, is one of the lending fpocin lists of the world in the line of nervous, brain, and special diseases. Many come to him after other physicians have f.illcdi as In tlie case of Philo H. Gar rett, the well-known nurseryman, resid ing near Washington. , "Some time ago," said Mr. Garrett, "I was taken Willi palpitation of the heart, accompanied by dizziness. There was a terrible burning .cubUtJuii oer my heart. I became so weak and sick I thought I should die. My doctor told me it was tn-thing j?erious, and certainly his medi cine did not help me. For months I con tinued to suffer. My food distressed me; I was troubled greatly -with gas, had se vere pains, was almost too weak to walk, and a horrible foreboding was pontiuually over me. At last I went to Dr Walker, the specialist, and I am satisfied that lie fcaved my life My heart disease is cured, and I can cat anything without distress. Dizziness no longer troubles me, and I am strong and cheerful. In fact, I am in perfect health." Dr Walker may be consulted at his well known sanitarium at 1-111 Pennsylvania avenue northwest, near Willard's Hotel, from 9 a m to O p. m From 7 to 8 p m on Wednesday and Saturday even ings, and from 10 to 12 on Sundays. UrllEuIi Complaints Against a PraotiGe of the Government Commission. FARMERS BUY ITS CATCH Sells For Less Thau Eegular Fishermen- Charge That tbo Proceeds Go Into the 1 Pockets cf Officials Chief Clerk Gill Says thoThintr Has Been Done For Years Honey Goes to Pay Seine Haulers. The fishermen of the Potomac, and es pecially those in the neighborhood of Bryant's Point, are indignant at the United States Fish Commission engaging in the sale of fish. This 6alc by tlie commission of the fish caught in its Bcinc at Bryant's Point, it is charged, seriously impairs the business of tbe local fishermen, reduces their revenue, and is conducted, they say, on the principle of underselling those legitimately in the industry. Mr T. D Ilayden, one of these ftahernien, called at The Times office Saturday night; and made a complaint concerning the above points, on bis own behalf and that of bis fellow-fishermen. The specific charge of Mr. Haydeu is that the United States Fisli Commission is en gaged in tbe fish trade at Bryant's Point; (bat Capt. L. Harron Is in charge there; that the commission sells shad and herring I in the Wasi'iisglon m irket and to the larni era, belling in oneday 75,000 herring, shad aud other fish, and realizing in a season over S3, 000. THREW AWAY THEIR FISH. Mr Hayden said that ho and his brother had many a time to throw away their fish, as tbe market at Alexandria and Washing ton was overstocked by the United States Fish Commission. Also tbat the com mission sells for $3 a thousand, while the tishciiiicn should receive $4 n thou sand. He said further tiiat Mr. Welch, who attends to the sales for the commis sion on tuoie. .-vaal li.ai he hanOIfi ail Uic inou.y for tbe sale, and that lh- rv ipts for the commission for 1892, 1893, were between three and four thousand dollars. t;apLHj.rron. he.sayi.haboeiiJMs ini' or a week or more, catching more fish than any of the fishermen, and if report be true, is selling fish for lets money than any other' fisherman." This complaint was referred to Chief Clerk Gill, of the Fish Commission, in ttie absence of Commissioner Macdonald from the city. CHIEF CLERK GILL'S STATEMENT. Mr. Gill said that the statement that the Commission sold the fish caught in the seine was true. There was no secrecy, whatever, in the transaction. Tlie fact that the Commission was using a seiuc to catqti shad had been known to Congress for years and the subject was discussed when the Commission was Investigated by a Scuate committee in 1890-91. The tales ot risli are made to pay the ex penses of tlie seine-haulers, and for that purpose only. If the fish were given a way the fishermen would complain, and it would be a very questionable policy to throw them away. Mr. Gill, without reference to the books, says that the statements of Mr. Hayden appear to be very much exaggerated. Mr. Gill quoted fiom the testimony given before the Senate Committee lo show that in three consecutive years the revenues from the sale of fish exceeded the ex penses of the cine-haulers by about $40, and that this was carried forward to bo applied to the next year's expenses. Capt. Harron testified that the average take of tlieacine was from 700 to 1 ,000 shad. FISHERMEN'S BEST CUSTOMERS. Mr. Gill cited statistics to show that the fchad taken in the river was only j'bout one-seventh of the number used by the com mission, aud that the rest was bought from Hi'" tinermen and gillr.et xnen. the com m.ss'oa bemg thus one of their bc&fc customers. By using its own seine the government can .secure a million eggs for $22 or $23, while a nullum egs Ojunt irum the gui.iei men and other fls'im hi""3 cosLT he govern ment from $80 to $85. Mr. Gill fcaid that The Times could at any time obtain .all tbe information It wanted on I he subject at the office of the commission. They scil their lish tumugh a commission merchant of tins city. The price obtained and aked from tbe farmers and everybody else is merely the wholesale price. Xorthero f-u-n, i uo.

Kicholson Easily Excusable For Hi3 Error3 In Saturday's , Game St Louis Gots Out of Last Position. Notwithstanding the fact tbat the Sen ators have lost both of the games which they have played in the race for tlie pen nant, and are sbarlng with Cleveland the honor of being tlie lariendera, the patrons of tbe team, who aj-ftJWe followers of the game, are not vjery-iidown-hcarted by the jsho wing made withBoston. The team is amtfch better one in many respects than it1 whs last year. Crooks as a second baEgtnoi'can give card3 and spades to Ward, -wjiq covered that position last year. Tbe orrojRi that Nicholson made were entirely excusable. The infield at National Park s fccmethmg horrible. It was given out tbaUt had been much im proved, but the boys fail to bte whoie it comes in. In a conversation with Joyce last night he said that the boys are capable of put ting up n much better article of ball than they bad yet shown. . They were all some what nervous ou Saturday, especially Nicholson. The game that the Bostons put up stamps them as more than likely to be In the firht flight at the finish. Irdeed, if their first two games are a fair sample, they appear to have the pennant well in hand. It is very probable thntMallarky or Maul will pitcli in to-day's game, and McGuiru will likely go behind the bat. Only two games were played yesterday. St. Louis made a spurt and jumped up from last position. The Clevelands must liave been pretty son: after the game with nil three of them lost to Cincinnati. This boosts the latter team into firtt position. The attendance at today's game will likely lw considerably smaller than that of Saturday, but there will be a big crowd of looters on bond. When the last inning has been played aud the Wn&hlngtous ale returned winners, oh, what a yell will go up aud bow those who roasted the team will crawfish. Now boys play ball.

MANAGEMENT GETTING SCARED They Realize That Their Queer Ways Are Becoming Too WeU Known Legitimate Bookmakers Withdrawing from tb.3 Stands Despair Wins a Race With An other Boy TJp ana the Eooks Were "On." The first thing heard as the crowd en tered the grounds of .the Old Dominion Jockey Club at Alexander Island Satur day was tfa&t -Secretary Tompkins bad handed in his resignation. Investigation proved that the rumor was correct aud with the last race Saturday night his of ficial duties ceased. The relations between the management and Mr. Tompkins are friendly in every way, they say, the resignation being brought about by a desire on bis part to give bis entire attention to his stable of horses. All this sounds well, but tbe truth of the matter unquestionably is that those in charge were made to realize by The Times exposures that something must be done to put a show of respectability on the place. They know only loo well the injustice that has been done other owners by per mitting Mr. Tompkins to run his horses, but they did not care to realize this wrong until compelled to by the perfect torrent of protest that has been brought forth since The Times called attention to the faet. TRYING TO SQUARE THINGS. They say a drowning man will catch at a straw. President Jones and his as sociates arc now in similar position. They realize that their track has goue be yond the limits of safety, but Secretary Tompkins resigning wont help to win friends for the track. It only serves to snow how near the end really is. J Tlie fact tbat Grand Prix, Bones, Bel lagio, aud the three or four others that sport the pink Jacket with the evergreen clover, were occasionally dropped into soft places, and were invariably well treated both as to weight and position in send off, is only one ot the many methods of the place tbat is at variance with hon esty on the part of those in charge. If the place was to be cleaned of its plague spots, the work would be of a herculean order. It -would mean tbe dropping of judges who have proved them selves time' and again blind to the misdeeds that, bave taken ptace under their very noses. It would mean a sweeping from the grounds of the black-legs ot the turf that now strut about and ply their trade without fear of molestation. It would mean the ordering from tbe ring of the dozen or more pirates rlio, under tlie guise ot bookmakers, vio with one another to rob the public by bargaining with owners and jockeys to have horses stopped. It would mean tlie driving from tlie track of tbe apologies for jockeys that pull horses 1n the most bare-faced mannejj. It would mean the closing of the gates to the confidence men, the shell game rollers, the touts aud the painted-faced females who daily swarm to the place iu droves. Do this, President Jones, and,your track might work its way back to the level of decency, but to expect this, would be ex pecting too much. Those that would have 1 lo be cast out, have made tho place. -v a; ' -y,-'?- 1TT4 IM) ?' -'AV r.MM mBBE; 5 i 4 .

The management has selected as a eoc cessor to Secretary Tompkins Ralph Bay ard, a well-know turf writer. Mr. Bayard has the sympathy of all honest rac ing men. Hia reputation among horse men ishigh. As a wnter his articles have been just and fearless. He baa given credit where it was deserved, and lias criticized where cnticwm was called for. His engagement was a clever move on tbe part of tbe Island management, but H. will fail Its pu rpofce. So far as lies in hi power things will be run "dead on the level," but tbe cloak is not big enough to hide the weakness of other spots. Saturday when it came time for the books to draw on. only fifteen slates were put np. This is a falling oK of six or a difference ot $600 in the "club's" profits for tbe day. The faithful were on line, tlie absentees being the better element of bookmakers who have been at work trying to do a i lcgitiuiate business. Seeing that those around them did not work on similar lines, they -very wisely decided to give np tbe J attempt. "Tbe Morgue," "The Embalmer," i "The Undertaker," and the other fa miliar faces were eagerly calling for the jwbiic to step up and contribute to their bask rolls, i but the response was not as hearty as usual, i the betting being unusually light. t The afternoon f urniehetl the regular num- I bcrot bewildering exhibitions of form. The crowd grumbled and growled but with the officials everything was serene and lovely. DEPENDS ON THE JOCKEY. Not many days ago the "pet" jockey of the administraation rode Despair in a manner that called forth a protest from every lover of f airplay. Saturday Despair i had another boy up and he won a good race in fast time. Little Jim who was an odds on favorite failing to even get a place. The books won heavily on the result. Why then should any question be asked? In tlie maiden race which was the third event on the card the favorite was Judge Onl. He was entered in tbe name of J. B. Gleason who is supposed to represent M. J.Daly. Judge Ohl was held at a short price until the last few mmutebof the betting when the odds began to climb, themoney at the same time pouring In on Savant. The latter mnp'in the name of the Hartford stable, generally reputed to be another nom-de-coursc for the Daly family. Savant won the race aud Judge Ohl was beaten off, hiB rider seeming to be entirely content with his position. Of course all this may have been legitimate but few believed it to be and some of the comment heard alter the race was hardly complimen tary. It was stated yesterday that a representa tive ot the Jockey Club is at Alexander Island looking up tbe ownership of certain horses believed to be the property of Orlando Jones. If the necessary evidence is round, Bandit and Sue Kittie will not be allowed to run on the legitimate tracks. Tin AlexKnder Truck Charter. From the American Grange Bulletin. With genuine regret tbe Bulletin recently called attention to tho sale of a grange charter issued by tho Virginia legislature "for tbe promotion of agr.cuiture," &c, to a racing association and thus brought disgrace to the firm namo of the grange. The position of the Bulletin need, not be misuuderstood by any, for it is simply and emphatically a demand in bebair of the good name of tho order, for either the revoking of the charter as sold or such change of title as shall perfectly sever the name of the grange frdm it. - CoKtu Uic a ,ul tiuiilcnsalii.
