TO BUILD WHARF
___
AriirdclOn The-Bay To Have Better
Commissary Facilities
At a meeting of the Commission
ers of Arundel-on-the-Bav yesterday,
the offer of ('apt. N. G. Nowell, of
West River, was presented. Captain
Nowell offers to build the wharf off

der to run his boat in everyday and
carry supplies to the cottagers there.
The Commissioners accepted the
offer.
At present the commissary facili
ties are faulty, merchants* in town
declining to serve tin- Arrundclita
with groceries, provisions, etc., as
formerly, notwithstanding large hills
of goods are purchased by cottagers
i thero every week-end throughout the
winter, not to mention the large hills
of goods ordered in summer.
The Commissioners decided at tlu*i r
meeting to have better lighting fa
cili ies, to increase the number of
lamps on the hoard-walk, and to place
tin- lamp posts nearer the boardwalk
than they are now.
Other routine matters were dis
cussed by the Commissioners.

Visiting Players And Home Aggregation
Dined Bv William H. \ aii-anl Yes
terday
In the doube-header games between
the Annapolis and the Maryland Meter
Association nines on St. John’s Col
lege damotid yesterday, the two teams
celebrated the Fourth by splitting
even on their contests. The visitors
took the first game in the morning by
a score of 8 to 3, and in the afternoon
the locals retaliated by drubbing their j
visitors to the tune of 10 to 8.
The day was marked by an increased
interest in the success of the Annap
olis club, and by the gaining of a
strong and substantial friend for
them. Following their game in the
, morning, Mr. W. 11. Vansant,proprie- j
tor of Vansant’s Cafe, on State
Circle, entertained the visiting team
for the locals at dinner, and repeated
this at supper time, following the
second game. He then gave a
“spread’’ for the local team.
Mr. Vansant’s generosity made a
distinctive hit with the players of
both teams, and gave the Annapolis
nine’s management a big boost in a
financial way, as it is by no means a
small part of the local’s financial bur
den to feed and properly entertain
thr visiting opponents.
During the spread for the Annapolis
team, after their opponents had left
for Baltimore Mr. Vansant was toast
ed many,many times, and Mr. August
Lutz, who has also manifested much
; interest in the welfare of the home
club, which he helped to organize, was
also toasted and commended.
Annapolis has a good team that un
doubtedly deserves more support from
the townspeople than it has been get
ting and the example set by Messrs.
Vansant and Lutz will be followed by
others.
The games themselves yesterday
were well worth the watching, al
though the visitors did capture one.
The morning contest was lost largely
through the inability of the local men
to connect safely with'the delivery of
Fauwell, who was on the slab for the
visitors. The result by innings was:
Meter 2 0 11 0 1 2 0 1
Annapolis 300000000
Things went better for the locals
in the afternoon game, in which they
coupled with ' Cooper’s delivery for a
i total of fifteen hits. The inning
I csore in this contest follows:

DEATH OF MISS STEVENSON
Former Annapolitao Passes Away In
Philadelphia
Miss Elizabeth Stevenson, formerly
of this city, died yesterday in Phila
delphia after a lingering and painful
ilness. The deceased was a great
sufferer for two weeks and death
came as a blessed release to her
pain-racked body.
Miss Stevenson was a sister of Mrs.
Frank B. Mayer, widow of the well
known artist, who lived here, and
whose work “The Burning of the
Peggy Stewart,” and other historic
paintings, hang in the State House
rotunda and galleries. Miss Steven
son lived here with her sisters, Mrs.
Mayer and the late Mrs. Brown, for
some years on Market street, but
later removed to Philadelphia, where
the funeral will take place tomorrow.
'1 he deceased was a woman of
wonderful force of character, highly
intellectual and cultivated. From
early childhood she had been alllicted.
having to be wheeled in a chair most
of the time. Despite her affliction
she was always cheerful.good-natured I
and happy. Although the sunshine of
her own life was overcast by shadows
of affliction and suffering, she always
cast sunshine into the lives of others.
Naturally of a happy disposition,
she strove to make others happy.
She was wholly unselfish and thought
always for others rather than for her
own comfort. She was constantly
busy that others might be brnefitted,
especially little children, for whose
welfare she gave sums of money and
devoted much time.
Always deft with her needle, she
did most artistic work to be donated
to hospitals and charitable institu- j
tions, mostly in Philadelphia. At
one time she gave a beautiful exhibi- ;
tion of her work here for a local
charity. The many Annapolis friends
of Miss Stevenson sincerely mourn
her death. She lived well. Her life
was an inspiration and her memory
is a benediction.

: A NAVY ROMANCE
Lieut. Hutchins To Wed Sister
Of Margaret^Anglin
MET HER ON HIS SHIP
An Episode That Pegan In Antipodes lias
Its Denouement In New York
. House Party
A romance that began in the anti
j>odes has its denouement in the me
tropolis—New York.
A marriage license was issued
at the City Hall, ir New York city,
on Saturday to Lieut. Charles Thomas
Hutchins, Jr.,, U. S. N.. stationed at
the Washington navy yard, and Miss
Ellen Mary Warren Anglin, of 23
West Fifty-ninth street. New York.
Miss Anglin is the sister of Miss
Margaret Anglin, the actress. Lieu
tenant Hutchins is 30 years old and
Miss Anglin 27. The wedding will
take place on July 11 at St. Patrick’s
Cathedral, New York.
The engagement of Lieutenant
Hutchins and Miss Anglin is the re
sult of a romance associated with the
cruise of the Atlantic fleet around
the world. When the fleet reacned
Australia in August, 1908, it became
known that Margaret Anglin was
playing in “The Thief” at Mel
bourne. While the battleships were
at Sydney a rivalry arose among the
officers as to who should be the first
to entertain Miss Anglin on ship
board when the fleet reached Mel- j
bourne.
The officers of the Louisiana, on
which Lieutenant Hutchins was sta
tioned, won out. They sent an emis- i
sary overland from Sydney to Mel
bourne. He* arrived there the day
preceding the fleet’s arrival, which
was on a Saturday. The emissary se
cured Miss Anglin’s promise to be the
guest of the officers of the Louisiana
at luncheon on the ship on the next
day. Miss Anglin asked that she
, might bring her sister, Miss Elieea,
1 who was her companion on her the
; atrical tour of Australia. At the
! luncheon Lieutenant Hutchins first
met his pospective bride, who by
mere chance had been seated with
him at the table.

KIRK GETS THE DECISION
Outpoints tiabriel In Aggressiveness Dur
ing Bout At Colonial Theatre
When they came together or their
second bout,Battling Kirk was given
the decision over ’•Kid” Gabriel,
colored, in their six round go at the
Colonial Theatre yesterda y aterpoon.
i The battle was a pretty one and
vas witnessed by a large crowd,
which had. in a measure.been drawn
to the theatre in anticipation of
the returns from the big Jeffries-
Johnson tight.
The initial round was full of sparring
without any great mixingup of things
hut in the second session Kirk went
after his man in aggresive style that
brought forth plentiful cheering from
the large audience. He kept his
work up in the third, fourth, tifth and
sixth rounds. He pounded the negro
at will and several times had his oppo
nent groggy, hut seemed unable to
deliver the decisive blow that would
have scored a knock-out.
The decision of Referee Murray
proved u popular one. Two good pre
liminaries were also held and man
aged to keep the crowd in good humor
while the returns from the big battle
at Reno were coming in.
