[from the Washington correspondent] The Ward deal which has been the subject of conversation (amongst all interested in baseball), the past ten days, has been declared off, and the management of the Washington team will have to get along without him for the balance of the season. Everybody in this city trusted that the deal would be consummated, and the hopes of seeing Johnny playing short for the Senators was expected to be a certainty. But now comes work from Gotham that Ward would not be released from the New York club under any circumstances, any therefore the high hopes of all have received a great blasting, as it were.
