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

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
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.
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

only one run of the day being earned.

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.
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

home team.

Captures All tho T"lejd Events Cam
eron "WnlkH a Fact .Mllo with SulU
van Close "Up Three-legged Raee
- "Was Very Funny and "Wus "Won
by Dixon and 3nNli. '
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.
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
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.
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.
The results of thq events yesterday
were as follows: .

Dyrenforth's Snle.
Dyrenforth has made an Important move
in the history of Washington merchan
dising. 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. Before this cau be at
tempted, however, the entire stock on
hand, and amounting in value to $150,000,
must be closed out at great sacrifice.
This must be done to avoid its belngspoiled
or seriously damaged during the alter
ations and changes. A reduction of one
quarter, or, 25 per cent, will be made, and
Washingtoniane will reap the benefit.
Seldom, if ever, has such an opportunity
occurred to secure the finest grades of
clothing in wonderful variety and in all
the very latest styles at such prices. The
sale will be a revelation and every one
should call and see the bargains Uiat will
be offered, beginning to-day.
Even the wintry winds could
not stem the tide of steady buy
ing which prevailed here yester
day. Of course we shall be ac
cused of ruining the
business spoiling you
ing money for ourselves,
matters little to us. We are
not guided by what others do.
We started out to make this

ing social feature, -were held yesterday,
beginning at 9:30 a. m. and closing at 3
p. m., at the Marine Barracks.
The school is composed of the young
officers who are assigned to the Marine
Corps from the last class at the Naval
Academy. There are also under instruc
tion there a class of non-commissioned
officers, the instructor being Capt. l'aul
St. Clair Murphy, at Marine Corps head
quarters. The object of the special course
is to supplement the school of the sailor
ivith that of the soldier. The curriculum
consists of theoretical studies in maps,
papers, section room and practical work in
drill, tactics in the company, battalion,
battery, signals and torpedoes.
Tho class to he examined -was composed
of Lieuts. Dawson, Lowe, Davis, Russell,
Maclin, and Borden, of the last grad
uated class. The board of visitors was
Capt. Coofcc, of the Navy; Major Keid,
of the marine corps, and Capt. Chase, of
the artillery.
The exercises' were opened with the re
ception of the board of examiners. The
course of instruction was then explained
to tho young officers, and the non-commissioned
men on all the topics heusad in
the curriculum of the past year. After the
examinations m the book studies the prac
tical work of the field was commenced.
There were four companies of marines m
attendance, which tho young officers were
required to handle, and there was also a
launch on which they gave an exhibition
in their proficiency in torpedo service,
the direction, handling, explosion, etc.,
of these engines of war.
There were two especially interesting
details of the school practice, one ot which
was the assault and demise of a given
position The mtriues were divided into
two armies, one of which, the attacking,
was in command of Lieutenant Dawson,
the defendlug, by Lieutenant Davis. Tills
There were used, of course, only blauk
cartridges, but the spectacular effect of
a battle is always grand euuugh to all con
cerned except the killed and wounded.
It was a scene of much animation with
tlie charges and couuter charges, clouds
of smoke, rattle of the guns, and the
taking aud retaking of the impromptu
T,he other special movement of inter
est was tlie construction of hasty en
trenchments, the kind that are put up on
the spot, and often during an engagement.
While all this was going on, Prof.
Fauciulll and the Marine Band inspired
the soldiers with a rine selection or music.
Capt. Murphy accompanied the board as
an observer. The success of tlie day and
tho admirable exhibition of hl3 pupils must
have been a sorce of great gratification
to that accomplished officer.
Among the attendants were Col. Com
mandant and Mrs. Heywood, Admiral
Hussell, Mrs. MIcon, Mrs. Major Held,
Mrs. Gen. Ordway, Mrs. Capcrton, Miss
Noyes, Mrs. and Miss Kobson, Mrs. Howell,

Attorney Tusgnrt's Contention in
Heirs' ltlpurlan Suit.
Assistant District Attorney Taggart
took up the time.of the District Supreme
court in general term yesterday in argu
ment against the claims of the Easby heirs
riparian privileges from Seventeenth street
and of Littlerield, who are demanding
to Twenty-seventh.
In the conveyance or the squares for
which river front is claimed, he said, the
limits are determined and It is specif icaHy
declared in the deeds that the government;
is entitled to such grounds ax it needs
for streets. The most the claimants cau
ask is that portions of their lots in squares
148, 129, 89 and 63 can claim is pay
for such pans of their land as lie north
of the street which rorms their southern
boundary of the squares and are taken
by the government.
The value should he estimated, too, as
of the time when the ground was taken.
All land reclaimed by the government, he
was sure, belonged to it.
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
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."
Manley Hickes. a little boy, eleven years
ot age, got caught between tho bumpers ot
two freight cars, on which he was playiDg
on Monday evening, and had both legs
badly crushed.
The soldiers' nine, from the Washington
arsenal played a match game on the Col
toss grounds yesterday evening with the
Old Dominions ot this city and defeated,
