The Baltimore Sun says of yesterday's game in that city between the Clevelands and Baltimores for the Temple cup: Truly, the Orioles have started out like cup winners. For the last two seasons big Cyrus Young has been a terror to the Orioles, and the games they have won from him have been few and far between. He won every game he pitched in last year's c-:p series and every game this year except one, and that was because he was being overworked and had but one day's rest between games. But the champions went at him 'yester day in an entirely different spirit from that which they usually display before hbm. They knew that in order to win the cup they would have to beat the mighty Cyrus somehow, and they went at him with a vengeance. The score of 7 to 1 in the home club's favor shows what success they had. On the other band, Hoffer. "Wizard" Hoffer, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, proved himself a veritable "wizard" of the first water. It was a great game-a game worthy of the two great clubs that played It. Despite a few mishaps, caused largely by nervous eagerness to hurry the plays, the contest was sharp, fast, brilliant to a degree, and it kept the crowd keyed up to the highest enthusiasm all the time. It was an ideal day for base ball, only a trifle, perhaps, too cool. The crowd was smaller than had been expected, but it paid as well as a crowd twice its size, for the price of ad mission had been doubled. It numbered 3,!95 as it sas. On the housetops over looking the ground the prices doubtless re ma!ned the same. For once the Clevelands seemed unlucky. Not only Is Cuppy disabled, but their able commander, Tebeau, sprained his back In the third inning in hitting at a ball and had to leave the game, O'Connor taking his place. Tebeau was suffering so much that lhe had to leave the ground and was at tended by a physician in the cottage of Groundlkeeper Murphy, who kindly offered him its use. Tebeau may be Out of the game some days, which will be a blow to the C'leveland's prospects. McGraw overexerted himself in the third Inning and had a. slight attack of weak ness. Quinn went to third and played it well. McGraw said he would play today. If Manager Hanlon, after seeing him practice this morning, thinks Corbett in good form, he will probably put the young ster In to pitch against the Clevelands in the second game of the Temple cup series at 3:30) today. If he thinks Jerry Nops is in the better form, Jerry will do the twirling. Wallace is slated to do the pitching for Cleveland. He has not shown much effec tiveness against the champions this sea son. Wilson is not very well. Cuppy will probably try to pitch on Monday. If his hand will not permit Young will likely try his luck again. RAY:PIMOREU. CLEVELAN4D.

The attention of the local fishermen was generally attracted by the publication Wed nesday of the truly remarkable catch of Mr. Grenville Lewis in Little river last Saturday. Mr. Lewis' five-and-a-half pounder stands very near at the head in the record of local bass catching, but "there are others," The Star today received a note from Mi'. A. Gonard of 10 Q street northeast announcing that he, too, was favored Saturday by the fiekle fortune that attends fishermen. He writes that while angling Saturday In the Potomac near Sycamore Island, in company with Mr. C. Fen Keys of 181.3 6th street northwest, be landed a four-pound bass. Other good catches are being reported from time to time, and it looks as though this were In deed a good year for bass fishing. Looking for It. From Household Words. An Irishman once worked all day on the prcmlse of getting a glass of grog. At night the employer brought out the grog to him, and the Irishman tasted it and said: "Which did you put in first-the whisky or. the water?' "Oh," said the employer, "the whisky."' "Urn-bum," mused the Irishman, "well, may be I'11 come to it by ndr by." TO OPEN TONIGHT The Fall and Wer Season of Local Chess-Players. TOURTrNT TOEGII IV R 11 Rules Governing Handicaps Have Been Modified. MATCH WITHR BROOKLYN The Washington Chess, Checker ard Whist Club will open the chess season this evening in a team match, in which all the members in the city are expected to par ticipate. Messrs. James Patterson and W. A. Gwyer, Jr., two of the strong players of the club, will lead the respective sides. The teams will be chosen at 8 o'clock, und play era who arrive later will also he paired. Non-members are invited to be ,present, and should there be enough tables to go around they will be given an opportunity to play. The annual tournament of the Washing ton club will begin November 11. As the tournaments of the club are for the pur pose of promoting chess playing in the city, it has been decided to open the tournament to all players in the District. Entries will close November 4. The entrance fee will be $2. All the entrance money will he ured for the purchase of prizes.as follows: Thirty per cent to purchase the first prize, twenty five per cent to purchase the second prize. twenty per cent for the thidd prize, fifteen per cent for the fourth prize, and ten J.er cent for the fifth prize. Under this appor tionment there will be five prizes, and the difference between one prize and another is slight. Each competitor plays but one game with every other player, and but one game is required to be played per week, un less the number of competktors should ren der it necessary. The pairing of the players is to be done l.y lot. The time limit will be forty moves for the first two hours on each side, and twen ty moves an hour thereafter. Handicap Rules Modified. The rules governing the continuous handi cap tournaments at the Washington Chess Club have been modified, beginning on the 1st instant. It was decided to separate the players into five classes, viz: A, B, C, D, E. One class gives players in the iext class below KB pawn and move; two clIsses below, KB pawn and two mov.aa; three classes below. QK odds, and four classes below QR odds. Draws do not count. The number of prizes has been increased to tive. including a special prize for the player winning the greatest number of games. To be eligible for a prize, a player must play at least forty games in the three months, with at least eight different play ers. and at least five of the games must be played with a player or players in the same clat s as the prize winner. It is ex pected, now that the cool weather has returned, that there will be a marked in c ease in the num)er of games played in the continuous tourneys. Tharp-Tlbketts Match. The third game In the match between Messrs. L. Tharp and E. A. Tibbetts was a French defense, defended by the latter. It was a well-contested game throughout, and was won by Mr. Tibbetts on its merits after about eighty moves. Mr. Tharp was pressed for time in the middle of the game. 'Ihe fourth game between these parties was a ques-n's gambit delined, and resulted in a draw, after sixty-five moves. The score now stands: Tharp, 2; Tibbetts, 1; drawn, 1. The match by eprrespondence between the Washingtcn aVd Brooklyn chess clubs has been resuted, after an adjournment during the summer months. The Brooklyn Eagle says of these games: 'At an early date -in this contest. owing to mismanagement and neglect of the com mittee then in charge, the games were al lowed to lapse into a very precarious state, so much so that defeat was staring Brook lyn in the face almost from the start. By careful nursing, however, the positions have since been put in shape to some ex tent, and now one of the games at least presents an equal state of affairs, as far as Brooklyn is concerned, with possibly a slightly stronger position. The other game, thcugh, is, if position goes for any thing. welinigh beyond redemption, having been, in fact, an uphill fight against hope since the opening, a Ruy Lopez, turned in to a four knights' game. and defended on Showalter's favorite, but unsound, lines. The club members hereafter will be kept busy analyzing the changing positions, and it will not be through lack of effort that either one of the two games will be lost." The Washington players figure on surely winning the Ruy Lopez, and at least get tlng a draw in the queen's gambit declined. The moves in the games to date are as follows: Gnme A--Queen's Gambit Declined. (White.) (Black.) (White.) (Black-) Brooklyn. Wash'n. Brooklyn. Wash'n.

The Buda Pesth tournament begins Mon day. It is doubtful if Lasker will partici pate, because of his physical condition and match with Steinitz, which commences on November 10. The latter will probably not be one of the players, as he will desire to save himself for the big match with Las ker. Capt. Cooke is again an attendant at the chess club. He leaves the city again short ly for a prolonged trip on the Brooklyn, of which he is in command. Mr. I. Y. Knight, one of the veteran chess players of the city, has just returned from a trip to Philadelphia. FIELD AND TRACK SPORTS. Opening the AMhletie Season at Georgetowis University. The field and traclt athletics at George town University have commenced, and the men are all getting in condition for coming events. Every aftegoon after the studies for the day have concluded the athletes get out on the track and limber up. This year the 'varsity has a large number of promising men. T1k Ioss of "Big Mike" Mahoney, while it fill be felt to some ex tent in the athleticgt will be more felt on the ball team. In sprinters and runners the university has a number who prom ise good things as soon as they get into corndition. None hav 'et taken to the hur dles, and it is likely that none will until a week or more. Trainer Foley arrived durin~g the week, and jis reappearance was greeted with delight., He is looking well, and is ready for at hard season's work. From all appearances he will have his hands full attending to the large number of pupils who are now in training, thrs year promising to be the banner year in this respect. The plans for the fall games are now be ing laid. It was originally contemplated to hold these games on October 24, but cir cumstances will not permit the use of that date, and another date has not as yet been decided upon. This will be done some time during the week, however, and things will be pi.sahed for the meet. It is proposed to make it an invitation affair, and already promises have been received of men from Fordham and Princeton, wile the Uni versity of Pennsylv.ania will send down its crack relay team to win back the honors w rested from them last year by George town. It is also likely that Columbian University of this city will also be repre sented in thanes.m 'rhe gneae this ye'i HOEKE'S. | H Hoeke===th We've made a name for our guarantees satisfaction-that This is the store where a d< the reckless buyer.

The officers for the Athletic Association of the college for this year are as follows: President, Rev. Father Becker, S. J.; vice president, Richard J. Watkins: secretary. Morris Head; treasurer, F. X. Delaney. manager of field and track, Julius S. Walsh; assistant manager, W. W. Dixon. The of fice of the manager of base ball is vacant at present, but will shortly be filled. B. J. Wefers. the champion sprinter, will race at Montreal. Canada, this afternoon in the 100 and 200 yards run. From this place he will return directly to the col lege. The 'varsity athletics has been strength er ed considerably by the addition of Theo dore McGirr, a young Georgetown boy. who last year at Philadelphia developed some wondcrful speed as a long distance runner. Gcorgetown University has never had a long distance runner in its ranks, and young McGirr this year promises to add laurels to the c-lege reputation. His ree ord of a five-il lie cross country run In twenty-nine minutes is remarkably fast time, and on the track he can lower this time corsiderably. Dan McCarthy, the popular captain of the base ball team, returned to town dur ing the week. He is taking a medical course, this being his second ye ar, an'i orce more he will lead the blue and gray team on the diamond. --- 0 RAZOR KNIGHTS AROUSED. Barbers' War Against Colleges In Their Trade. From the New York Times. In every barber's shop in this city and twenty-seven other cities in New York state razors were drawn with unusual care and persistence yesterday over whetstones and strops, and there was a glitter in the eyes of boss barbers that boded no good to somebody. The knights of the razor and scissors have been called to arms. All over toe state the slogan has been sounded: "Down with barbers' colleges!" "Perdition to the mushroom hair clip pers and face scrapers who invade our province with diplomas!" From Rochester came the call to battle. It was thundered out by Charles A. Prinz, president of the Barbers' Protective Asso ciation of that city. He wishes employers to band together against shaving schools and their graduates, and through his asso ciation has called a convention of barbers. to meet November 17 in Syracuse, Bing hamton or Utica. "We want to legislate the incompetent barbers and the so-called barber colleges out of existence," said Mr. Prinz, "so that no person can manage or be a proprietor of a barber's shop without passing an ex amination before a competent board of ex aminers. The lawyers, doctors, dentists. plumbers, druggists, horseshoers, and even policemen, mail carriers and firemen are required to pass an examination; in fact al most every trade and profession in the land is protected. "Is the barber protected? No! Why not? Simply because the barbers have not had the gumption before to look out for their own interests. But now they see to what it will lead unless something is done to legislate the incompetent barbers as well as the barber colleges out of existence. Years ago it was custiomarv for ana ap prentice to serve three years at the trade before he was considere I a barber. But now the majority serve about six rmontht and then start in business for themselves. What kind of work cani such a barber do, or a barber who nractiont cight weeks in a barber college? They certainly cannot do good work, conseouchitly they must cut prices. "At this rate how loang before the whole country Is overrun by cheap barbers' sh.,ps and the good barbers will have to go out of business or else cut their prices accord ingly. This must be prevented by the bet ter class of barbers, who understand their business, banding together for their mutual protection." .John S. Everly, the Ashland House bi'r ber, is in hearty accord with Mr. Prina's ideas. "Why, it's awful, the kind of workmen these barber schools are turning out," he said to a reporter for the New York Thnes. "They are a positive menace to the public safety and good looks, "When I learned my trade we didn't think a man knew it all until he hadl had about six years' experience. We began with lathering customers, and it was a long while before we got to handling the tools of our trade. "Now these schools are turning out butchers and hackers of hair after five or six weeks of alleged training. "If one of them gets into a shop he is enough to ruin a good trade. Do you sup pose that a man who loses a section of his nose In a barber's chair will come back to sacrifice an ear? And is it likely that a man will develop such an appettte for soap that he'll come In every day to get a mouthful? "These barber colleges should certainly be legislated out of existence and kept out." Carl Schuhr, the Young Men's Christian Association barber, thinks that none should enter his business who has not served a thorough apprenticeship and passed an ex amination. "We have to keep the public looking clean and neat," said Mr. Schuhr, "and we ought to do it good and without hurting. We can't cut a man's face into strips and expect to have him say 'Thank you.' Eh? I guess not: and that's what these barber college fellows do. Let us have laws to stop them."* Mr. Prinz has drawn up a law against tn competent h. rhers and barber colleges, and it will probiably be presented at the next session of the legislature. Must Have Deen a Sparrow. From the San Francisco Past. An Oakland nilnister has been greatly annoyed by English sparrows all summer. They stuffed the fancy cornice on his house full of debris and ate up all the fruit from the half-dozen trees he had In his yard. The pastor has condemned the little pests in very vigorous language. At the dinner table the other day the pastor asked his six-year-old boy why he had mixed the ink and the mucilage in his study. "I didn't-er-" "Don't deny it, sir," interrupted the father, "I know that you did." "How do you know, papa?" "Oh, a little bird told me." "I suppose it was one of those condemned OEKE'S.
