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.
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.
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

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
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

, "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."

Complaints Against a PraotiGe of
the Government Commission.
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.
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.
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.
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

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

price obtained and aked from tbe farmers

What Will the ''Senators Do With

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
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.

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

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
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

They realize that their track has goue be

The books won heavily on the result.
Why then should any question be asked?

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.
