For seven Innings tho first "Washington-Cleveland game was quite slow and lireless, and then the UtUo sample of tricky ball, that might be called dirty ball, on Capt. Tebeau's part, woke up both teams and it was lively enough for anybody. Hp to this time "Washington played a dis couraged game, but afterwards ihey kept up a continual run of kicks and fought for every Point. Thcvisitorswereiiotoutbarted, but their hits were scattered aloug in the most discouraging way. McKean made a throw out of ti el bach's grounder. Joyce put a nice one to short center field and the first single was re corded. He tried to steal Eccond, but Z limner's throw caught him. Hnssamaer walked to first, but Abbey flew lo Chi his. Four bad balls gave Burkett a base and McKean singled. Childs was out at first, although he advanced the runners. O. Tebeau was out from Co-jgan to Cart wright, but Burkett scored and McKean went to third. George Tebeau waited for bad ones. He invited a throw to second to allow McKein to score, but the latter was caught at tho plate. One run. "WILLIAM'S TWO-BAGGER. "Washington went out without drawing blood, but in Cleveland's half McAlcerb.lt a grounder to Joyce, which he threw badly and hit the runner. ZImmcr got a base on balls and McGarr sacrificed s'icely. Cup py's grounder to Joyce retired McAlecr at the plate. Burkett singled and McKean hit for two bags, scoring both runners. Childs retired the sido by a grounder fielded by Coogan. In the third inning Malarky Btopped on Cuppy's assist and Selbach's long fly went to Burkett. Joyce walked to first and then Hassamer hit to the right fence for two bases. Joyce would have scored easily but fell after turning third. The ball was fielded in to McGarr and the latter fell over Joyce as the Senator scrambled backtotbebag. McGarrgotuplameandfor" a moment it waB thought that he had been spiked and the crowdhi6ted. The fact was McGarr turned his ankle aud Grem mlnger took blB place. Both Tebeau s got to first on balls, attempted to steal and each was caught by McGuire's good throws to Coogan. That gentleman's assist to McAlcer. INTERVAL OF QUIET. There were no more runsuntilthesevcnth and the game was slow. In that inning "Washington scored one. Crooks singled past O. Tebeau and Cartwrigbt, who had stolen second, scored. Malarky and Sel bach struck out. Crooks picked up ground ers by Cuppy and Burkett and the men were out at first. McKean flied to Hassamer. The eighth offered a little excitement.! Joyce put in a good two-bagger to center field and Hassamer followed with a single that scored him. Childs was too anxious to get in a double and letAbbey'sgrouuder get by, putting Hassamer on third. Gremminger got McGuire's grounder and threw Abbey out at second. Although Hassamer scored, Childs tried to double up McGuire but threw wild. Tebeau here got away with a trick. He introduced the little football, gave Mc Guire a fchouldcr that upsethim audhe never got away from the bag. CLEVELAND'S ROUGH PLAY. The visitors rowed for live minutes, but Tebeau got away with the play. McGuire was caught off the bag by Cuppy's throw a moment later, and McKean threw Cart wright out. This inning put excitement in the gamo and scored two runs. Childs singled and stole second. Tebeau had filed to left, but G Tebeau was declared out for in terfering with the throw. McAIeer singled and stole second. Zim mer got four bad onesandGrenningersingled to right and scored Childs and McAIeer. A bad throw from right field to catch Zimmer at third gave Grenninger second. Then Cuppy filled tho bags by getting a base on balls, and the same gift to Burkett forced in Zimmer. McKean flied to Hassamaer and retired the side after every man had batted. Three runs. Mercer batted for Malarky and singled, but uo good came of it. Cleveland. AB. 31. H.rO.A. E, Burkett, I. f 3 McKean. s. s 5 Childs. 2b 3 O. Tebeau. lb 3 G.

For months past he has been boasting of how soon he could whip the red headed middle weight champion, but now that Fitzsim mons money is up Corbett backs water, and refuses to go on with tho fight. Cor bett is afraid of Fitzslmmons and would get licked if ho ever met him. It looks now as if Dallas would surely get the Corbett-Fitzsimmons prize fight and that it will come during the Texas State fair and Dallas exposition next October.

SORRY THBY ARE OUTLAWED Tlioso Wlio Try to Haco Honestly Get tlio "Worst of tho Bargain DIs lionest Jockeys and Corrupt Offi cials Thwart Attempts at lteform. Jockeys Hide to tlio Bookies Orders. Tho attendanco at the Alexander Island track has been roduced to a mere corporal's guard. Yesterday there were only eleven bookies doing buslne&s, and thoy Fpent most of (heir time shouting tlio odds. The talk of the day was tho Summertime Naccy affair aud the failure of Governor Morton to sign .the New York racing bills. Now that (his has been dono, however, that difficulty is effectually settled and tho preparations for the Brooklyn Handicap and tho opening of tho Ecason will bo pushed with more vim and snap than ever. As to the former affair, things look pretty dark for the Virgluia Jockey Club. J. M. Hill, Nacey, and Lafe Block all lelt yester day afternoon for New York. They had beeu summoned to attend "a meetlug of the Jockey Club at 8 o'clock in evening, but telegraphed that they could notmanage to be on hand before 8:30. " The action of the Jockey Club in assum ing jurisdiction over racing over all courses east of tho eighty fourth meridian puts the St. Asaph people In a tight place, as a license from tho "Western Turf Congress will now be of no use to them. They will either have to close down or become outlaws. The racing at the Island was, if poa Bible, more rotten and corrupt than ever. "Little Willie," ably assisted by Murphy, did a laud office business killing favor ites. The former rode three of them Just about as badly as he knew how , and the latter got left at the post with another. Murphy's exhibition was, if anything, more bare-faced than any of Ham'a, as the latter at least made a preteuse of trying to win. GIVES THEM THE BLUES. The falling off in the attendance has disheartened the horsemen at the track more than anything else, and many of them were heard to wish that they bad stayed within the pale of tho Jockey Club. This is more particularly true of the small owners, who are uot In the "inner circle." No matter which way they turn or what thev do they lose in the long run. As one of them, who only has two horses at the track, and who has not been admitted to "the rinjr." said. "I am swindled and cheated on every side. More than one-half of the best riders at the track ride to orders from the association and the book makers, and when I do manage to get an houost boy up they are do wn on him because he is straight, and give him the worst of the start nine times out of ten." There are some GOO horses at the track. It Is safe to say that seven-cighhts of the ' owners, trainers, and Jockeys connected wtih them would gie half they possess to be given n chance to race honestly on ligitimate tracks. Even the owner who makes an attempt to race honestly soon finds that unless he conforms to the tactics adopted by bis fellow horsemen he will get the worst end of it every time. The bookies got far the best of the day's sport, as only two favorites managed to land the money for the talent. SIMPLY A GALLOP. Finnwatcr looked to be a pretty hard horse to beat, and 1 to 5 was the best-ob- tainable against her in the opening event. I To a good start she ran back in the bunch J to the far turn, where Bhe came through and . won as she pleased by fou r le'hgths. At this stage of the game the talent began to go wrong. They played Fluellen strongly, sending him to the post at 6 to 5. At the end he could do no better than sec ond, Cashmere leading from the head of the stretch and winning cleverly by a length. Nothing daunted, they came back and sent Little Jim to the post a 9 to 10 favorite. Annie T. went to the front at the Tall of the flag and led to the far turn, where the favorite came through and won as he pleased by a length. Tralee, a 20 to 1 shot, came fast in the stretch and ran into second place. Jersey closed favorite in the fourth event at 6ix and a quarter furlongs. Top Gallant was the tip, being backed from 12 down to 6 to 1. Chance was left Btandlng at the post at the start. Devisee went out and made the running until straightened out for home, when Ontario came up under the whip aud won In a driv ing finish by a neck. The next race, a five furlong spin out of the chute was also takeu iuto camp by a 10 to 1 shot. Pirate Chief was the favor ite, closing at even money. Murphy de liberately pulled him up at the start, after running some thirty yards. Mamie R. and Caroven alternated In the lead to the last? furlong, where Prluce John came fast, and won In a driving finish by a half length. Another odds on favorite, under tho careful riding of Mr. Ham, managed to get beaten in the last event. Plenty was the choice of tho talent, he closiug at 7 to 10. "When It came to raciug "Woodchopper made all the running, and though Eclipse made a strong play for the money In the stretch he lasted long enough to win by a head. To-day's Entries at St. Asaph.

The statement thaf'it is the intention of Lord Rosebery to create no more peers," may be taken at a very low valuation. In the first place, it he had formed any such Intention he would hardly be likely to make it public, because, in the second place, any such announcement would have a disas trous effect upon the party war chest. It is rather brutal, perhaps, to talk about the "price of a peerage," but it is a fact that nearly every peer created in recent times for political services has contributed at least 10,000 to the funds of his party. 1 -London Figaro.

Provisions of tbo Gray Haclnjr, tho Wildo Bills, and the Supplemental -Bill Ifixinz tlio Tax. Albany, N. Y May 9. The Governor has signed the Gray racing bill, the two "Wilde bills, forbidding pool-selling or gam bling of any sort, and the supplemental bill fixing a tax of C per cent, of the gros3 receipts of racing associations. The Governor names as the commission to govern racing: August Belmont, of New York; John S. Banford, of Amster dam, and E. D. Morgan, of New York. The Gray racing bill, the "Wilde auti-pool-seltlng bill, and the supplementary bill levying the tax of 5 per cent, on the gross receipts are now all laws of the Btate. By the combined provisions of the three bills horse racing is allowed under the supervision of a commission of three mem- hers, to be appointed by the Governor, to hold office for five years, races to be run under the rules of the Jockey Club or Na tioual Steeplechase Association. Pool-fcelling is forbidden absolutely, and unrecorded bets or wagers between private individuals are the only things In that line j allowed." Before obtaining a certificate f"h payment of capital stock must be cer- j tified to. Trotting associations are entitled to all tho privileges of the acts. The two "Wild's bills passed forbid any person to engago in pool selling, book making, etc., and also make it a felony for any one in any way to atsist them in doing to, which means that every person who puts down a bet or offers to do so is liable to a heavy fine or imprisonment for not more than two years or both. Gambling on the future price of stocks is also provided against, and almost every form or tpeculative investment, except in surance, is forbidden under very heavy penalties. -H Poolrooms doiifg a so-called commission business are expressly mentioned, thus extinguishing the last hope of those engaged in the business apart from the track.

Three boss checker pluyura wTU come over from Baltimore this evening o test their skill in a game with three of the Washington experts, the games to be played at the rooms of the Chess, Checker aud Whist Club, on Twelfth street north west. There is a great deal of quiet Interest attaching to this announcement. Two spirited contests are already a matter of record, and it is "a tale of two cities" that Washington came out ahead iu each. The first was played in Baltimore, result ing in a score of 20 to 9 in favor of "Washington.. The return game, played here, showed" 7 for Washington. 9 drawn, and Baltimore a great big naught. There will be an interesting contest tills evening, and it will doubtless attract a great many spectators. The teams are: For Baltimore, Baker Pryor and Ritter; for Washington, ilun delle, McIIardy and Ward. The "staying qualities" of two of tho Baltimoreans are not kuown to their Washington opponents, neither having been engaged in the previous bouts. price considering that they ran of ii Bass, Perch, and Other Fish it Shady Nooks. SEASON FOR SPORT HAS BEGUN Potomac Water Is Clearing and Yarns Are Belns Unwound by Hen "Who Follow In the Footsteps of "Walton. Hesorts Alonj; theHlver lave Bait Hailed in a Tub Favorite Tackle. Every foot of water along the Potomac will, before the summer is over, have been thrashed Into foam by the local Isaac "Waltous , and with what results no one ever knows, for there never was a man who could tell a straight fish story, ilauy "Washingtonians who dt-sire a day's outing go after the gudgeon and other small fish. "which abound in the Maryland streams, Others, somewhat more scientific in their angling, swk the hiding places of the perch. The true sportsman, however, dis dains this style of fishing, and goes forth, to battle with the game, wily bass, which will make him light for victory. Prom the Little Falls to South Branch this noble fish uownsestothesurfaceof thebroadPo tomac to take the fly, aud some were re ceutly caught even near Occoquan. Live bait has always been used in fishing for bass until within the last few years. Now the spoon and fly are employed al most exclusively. Air. M. A. Tappan, who loves sportfor Its ownsake and is a true disciple of Walton, yesterday expressed the opinion of many of bis class when he said: "Using the spoon Is a sort ot butchery. It Is brutal, and doesn't giva the fish a chance." YET IN ITS INFANCY. Fly fishing for bass Is as yet only la its infancy, but the fish will soon be edu cated up to taking the fly, and the ef forts ot lovers ot fishing are directed to wards bringing about this result. The water has been muddy all spring f and this has spoiled the sport in a large measure, but during the last few days it has commenced to clear nicely, and the anglers or the city are testing their tackle in anticipation ot big fish. The perch are now going np the rivet and they are being caught in great num bers by the persons who line the banks and also from boats. The stones that come from the Potomac are assuuiiag their usual piscatorial flavor, and there is, even this early in the season, a man whosweara that he had a fish on his line which wasas big as a good-sized dog. This fiah, of course, got away. Ilere comes one from that old veteran. Joe Farrell, a name dear to the heart ot i evrv aier He, with some friends, the other day caught six white perch thai weighed over seven pounds. When this was told to a "Washington man yesterday hia lips puckered up and a prolonged whistla followed. Aftera while he managed to suf ficiently recover and gasp , "Who caught "em?"

There are any number of resorts along the river where fine sport may be obtained, such asBig Falls, Point of Rocks, Weverton. and Harper's Ferry. The old guides and tavern keepers are getting ready a new stock of yams for their city visitors, and it is said that George Chick, so well known to local fishermen, has some stories that recount tilings little short of the miraculou3. In the matter of tackle, there is a wide range from which to select. The split bamboo Is preferred by some, while oth ers are more fond of the lance wood. The Betharaba, the Greenhart, and the steel rod all have their admirers, who swear by them. As far as bait Is concerned, in fly fish ing it requires the eye of the expert to de termine what color, shade, and kind of insect is suited to the water, weather, and fishing place. This cannot be learned from books; experience is the only teacher. 8 ; por ordinary hook and line casting it was formerly necessary lo go over to George- ' town to'get bait, and then to return, before going on an expedition. Some enterprising young men in the neighborhood of Sixth and D streets have fitted up a bath tub in the cellar or one of their homes for bait, and they are now en joying a lucrative trade. From now on the fishing will be good and a great num ber of persons yesterday took advantage of the fine weather to try their luck. PROTECT THE FISH. There is a subject which is beingagitated amongthose of the District who have the good of the sport at heart, to secure legis lation which will preserve the fish now found in our waters. At present there is no close season. From one end of the year to the other men may fish for the noble bass whenever they choose. The fish spawn between the first of ITa-y and June 15. In that period fishing should be prohibited by law. ir tho present conditions are allowed to exist It will not be long before the bass will be unknown in our waters. The big-mouthed bass obtained from the fij.h commission about three years ago by Joe Hunter and then put into the Potomac, are large enough to bite this year. Uuless some measures are made for the protection ot these fish, in a few years the river will be as bare cf them as formerly. 1 SS1.25- ExcurslontoBaltirnoro $1.25. via Pennsylvania ltallroad.
