E, Miller INFANTRY TEAM HAD SNAP They Demolished the Treasury Nine Without Trouble. rntiKiiully.Good Game Vnt Up by tlio Military Capt. Jeager Itesiuu as Custodian of the League. The Washington Light Infantry team may liave played -weak ball In the past, but tin? game they put up against tho Treasury Department nine at National i'ark 5 gtenlay afternoon -was undoubtedly tlie pri-tUeet exhibition' of all-arouud hall playing seen on the grounds fora long time. The cold snap muht havlf been the mascot, for the boys played the game like veter ans. They gained the lead in the btart, and held it to the fiuish. The Treasury Department team -was some what weakened by the absence of Far rell, and were obliged to play a substitute who -was badly in need of practice. Phil "VMsner, as usual, held down third base in good stjle for the Infantry, and "Doc" Kleluschinldt made bcveral beau tiful running catches m left field. Glea son, although a little "wild, pitched a good game, and was excellently supported behind the hat by Gilroy. Heydlcr made a couple of nice stops at short, and Winkleman covered the territory around second bate very ciedltably. Gil roy, Heydlcr and Gleaton did some timely stick -work. Mills pitched a good game for the Treasury nine, hut his wil!.ess at times -was very costly. Harrows caught -well, hut threw to bases -wildly. Gardner played fctirfly at short, and Buchanan and Thompson batted "well. There -was one thing that everybody missed during the game, and that was the presence of Cupt. Jeager, who has resigned his position as custodian. The league had a good custodian In the capiamaiid will iMJobligodtpgelauANo. 1 man to fill his place. The score: Treasury Dept. It. n.

"Washington at Louisville. New York at Chicago. Philadelphia at Pittsburgh Bostou at Cleveland. Louisville. Ky May 14. The Senators took to-day's game in one inning and by a streak of batting. It was in the seventh inning, when the score stood 4 to 1 in favor of the tnil enders. MeDeruiott's delivery was easy. Carlwiight started off with a double. Coogan got four bad balls and Cartwright stole third, scoring on "Welch's wild throw to catch him. After .Abbey had gone out Stockdalo hit for three bases, scoring Coogan. This rattled McDennott, and he gave Crooks a hnsc on balls. Crooks stole sec ond, and then Scrappy Bill Joyce knocked out a two-bagger, and Crooks scored. Selbach got a life on Glascock's tumble, and both he and Joyce were advanced by a patted ball. AND THE GAME W-AS AVON. Ilabsamaer's out to center scored Joyce, and the game had been won. Tho hatting on either side was light, considering that both teams were heavy hitters. Errors made possible most of the runs, only one run of the day being earned. Joyco led the batting with a single and a double. One of Hassamaer's singles drove in a run. The home team was only able to hunch hits in the second inning, when aided by two errors, three runs were scored. The Colonels made their runs in the first two innings. In the firbt Sweeney wailed for a base on balls, .sacjiricMUa Eafe and scored on Crookb" error. A double play cut off other scores, made possible by Crooks' offense. In the sec ond Preston hit for two bases, and Sel bach muffed Clarke's fly. McDennott got first on Coogau's error. The error and a single by Sweeny tallied three runs. That ended the Colonel's run-getting. Aside from the five runs made in the sev enth, the Isitors made one in the sixth on Joyce's single, Selbach's out and Hassa maer's single. Bad running and a bad eye of Tim -Keefe, saved the game from being a tie. In the seventh Luby sli-gled.jind got to third on an out. Sweeny got a base on balls. LUBY TRIED A DOUBLE STEAL. In attempting a double steal Luby was slow to start, and was nipped at the plate. Then in the eighth Shugart hit down the right foul line, and made thinl hi safety. Keefe was behind" the catcher, Shugart being the first man up, and did not see the ball pabs on the fair side of first babe. He called Shugart back. Glasscock's single following would have brought him home. Clarke opened thc ninth with a two bagger, but the next three men put up flies, and the last hope was gone. Monday's game will he played off to morrow. Mularky or Mercer will pitch for "Wash ington, and Cunningham is down for the home team. Louisville.

' Yesterday was field day at Georgetown College. It was the one day in the collegiate' year, at least as Tar as athletics arc concerned, in which all the students took especial interest. This arose from the fact that yesterday was the date chosen for the members of the College Athletic Association to give their final exhibitions of skill preparatory, to taking part in the intercollegiate tourna ment which will be held at Mott Haven, N. Y., on May 24 and 25. There is an old saying among the students that it is only necessary 10 advertise a. game and adelugeissurctofollow. Though it did not rain yesterday, the plentiful show ers that fell on Monday prevented the carrying out or the programme as pre viously arranged. GROUNDS NOT" IN GOOD SHAPE. It was the Intention to have the field and track events comea off yesterday, but the campus grounds were soggy and in no condition for swift running. The track, events, therefore, were postponed until to-day, when it is hoped the grounds will bo in better condition. The cullies jesleruuy were the pick of the athletic association, and these did such exceptionally fine work ris 16 cau'be the boys to conclude that they would be "right In it" at Molt ll.iveu. "Big" George Mahoney, the particular prjde of the college athletes and the star pitcher of the baseball team, got rirst place in every event. W. E. Fox proved he could do the 100 yard race pretty close under ten f-eeomls. W. C. Cameron surprised everyone by covering the mile walk in eight minutes. Joe Suuhnn was the other entry in this event wjio did not drop out, and he came in ton seconds behind Cameron. The most amusing event of the afternoon was the three-legged race. There were ten entries, T)ut only two could stand the pres sure Dixon and Walsh and McManus and O'Brien. In the team race the claps of '95 fell out. This not owing to lack of skill or endurance, but becausq Mr. Raymond Baby's russet shoes stuck fast in the mud and left him in his stockings. "VERY GOOD SHOWING. When it is taken into consideration that -the athletes have njt peen practicing for some time; also the unfavorable weather and the bad condition of the grounds the showing yesterday was .unusually fine and great hopes are entertained that the "boys" will bring bact several firsts from ,the intercollegiate, meet. The coming anuual field, meeting of the Intercollegiate Associataouj is of consid erable importance to the Colleges all over the country, as those whojtake first place will represent the American colleges abroad in their contest wath the English universities of Cambridge and Oxford.

But with the first fall of the flag to morrow a new system of racing will be inaugurated. In it there is promise of that honesty and fairness which alone will bring with a whipping finish a resig nation to the fact that the best horse has won. Out of the original thirty candidates for the Brooklyn but twelve remain, and the chances are that at least two of these will not go to the post. Only a few of the horses wore declared out In February, nmong them being Old Banquet and Don Alonzo, well up in the weights, who were sentneross thccccan. Gradually, however, the others dropped by the wayside in the struggle for con dition, until a round dozen are at the pres euttimcschcduledtofacelheslarter.

This well-known clothing house has leased the large second floor of the building in which their store is located, and will very shortly commence the great alterations and Improvements necessary to complete their work of progress and development.

Tke Alexandria county grogshop keepers whose application to sell liquor at Jackson City, Rosslyn and other points in Alex andria county were refused at the meeting of the excise hoard of the county on April 30, brought great pressure to hear upon the members of the board at the meeting held in the county courthouse at Alex andria yesterday to have a rehearing of their applications. In each case they were unsuccessful, and went away very much disappointed, though they have by no means given up hopes that in the end they will get their licenses. The meeting of the hoard was held in the courtroom. Only Chairman Trout and Secretary John Stone were present. Only one new application for a license was made, and that was by D. B. Johnson, for a barroom on the Columbia pike, a short distnace from Arlington. No objection ap pearing, it was approved. A protest against the granting of any more liquor licenses in the county, signed by about fifty prominent residents, was among the papers read by Chairman Trout. Joe Nermas and Boh Cunningham, of Jack son City, Mrs. Reynolds, of Rosslyn, Wil liam M. Hodgson, of Columbia Pike, all ot whom have been refused a renewal license, pressed their claims for a rehearing, but it was useless. Chairman Trout would not listen to them, and repeated the statement that he had made at the April meeting, that he woald not grant another license to any parties against whose places complaint had been made. Since the April meeting the hoard has" reconsidered their disapproval of the ap plication or W. A. Haley for a barroom at Jackson City, and ot James T. Patter son for one at the main entrance to the Virginia Jockey Club grounds, and both these applicationshave since been approved. Rev. Dr. C. L. Richard, ot Providence, R. I., delivered the seventh of the series ot Rcmicker lectures at the Virginia Theo logical Seminary yesterday afternoon. His theme was "Books andReading."
