Ball Enthusiasm at Low Ebb.
Is baseball enthusiasm on the de
cline? Well, It would seem so. Kear
ney and Columbus have dropped out.of
tlte state league and the other towns
are suffering from financial wobbles
due to tho lnck of support. Now conies
President O'Nell of tho Western League
with the statement that players in that
eaguo must accept reduced salaries,
or play the remainder of tho season on
a percentage basis. In the event that
neither of these propositions aro ac
cepted the league will go out of busi
ness. The leaguo managers will meet
n Omaha June 17th to discuss the sit
uation. Undoubtedly tho automobile
has affected the attendance at ball
panics, owners or cars prererring to
spend their money and time in that
lilnd of recreation.
