Senators, are good. The Senators have
been turning out in great shape during
the week for practice. One night 17
men were on hand. This is more than
double the number that turned out last
year, and shows the increased interest
in baseball here.
Manager Baker has constructed a
batting cage for use in practice. An
other will be built for visiting teams.
The cage is constmcted in such a man
ner that balls cannot go back, over or
to either side of the batter, and the
result is he must send out hits, and
those on the benches or in the vicinity
are in no danger. Fouls are impossible,
the wire netting extending over the
Manager Baker has received a com
munication from the Westorn Bloomer
Girls, requesting a date hero. He will
endeavor to arrange for a game during
the chorry festival. Mr. Baker's sister,
who is now visiting him, saw the team
play in a Michigan city, and the crowd
was larger than that attracted by a
league team. The girls play good ball,
and are different in every way from
the Boston Bloomers Girls, it is stated.

General Joseph E. Johnston, with the
lost armed force (of any importance)
of the Confederacy, surrendered to Gen
eral W. T. Sherman 48 years ago on
April 20, 1865.
On the 18th of April Generals John
ston and Shermau (they wore lose
friends, by the way, and remained such
to the last) met at Durham Station,
N. C, where a conference was held
which resulted in an agreement.
Johnston telegraphed the proposed
agreement to Mr. Davis and was by
that official ordered to accept it. Iu
the meantime, the Washington authori
ties (Presidont Lincoln was now dead)
rejected the basis of agreement, and
Sherman notified Johnston that in 48
hours he would resume hostilities
against him. This was on tho 24th. On
the 26th Sherman had another confer
ence with Johnston, at which he con
vinced him that further fighting would
be "murder," and offored him the
same terms that Grant had given Lee.
With Buch understanding, Johnston sur
rendered. Sherman's original terms, as offered
to Johnston on tho 18th, were in strict
keeping with Mr. Lincoln's purpose,
and it is certain that had tho groat
president lived they would nevor have
been countermanded. The surrondor
would havo takep place upon that
broad, noble basis, and the "10 years
