The petition favo' *ng the continu

legally qualified names. The remon
strance petition to be effective must
have one-eighth more names than the

Opponents of the farm bureau pre
sented a petition with 734 names, but
Upon investigation the board deter
mined that a great many of the slgn

Removal of these signers soon made
fie petition powerless to demand
Six supervisors were present at the
smeeting, with Attorney J. C. Cook on
hand In behalf of the petitioners. Re
monstrators were not represented.
Although it Is known that there are
members on the board who oppose the

the statutes lay down the laf? in re

The action of the board brings to •
climax the annual battle between the
elements for and against the farm

But Omaha Cattle Dealers
Have Entirely Different
View of Things
—— . ■ - <
Lincoln, Neb., Oct. (Special)—
Wertheimer & Degen, Omaha cattle
dealers, and Fred Schrelber, Stanton
banker, have gone to the legal mat
over the proper Interpretation of the
law of sales as applied to cattle. The
Omaha men sent a shipment of 120
head to Carl Spoerlng, farmer near
Pllger, who had corn to feed and no
money to pay for cattle. He was sick
at the time and did not sign the chat
tel mortgage demanded by the seller
until after the cattle had reached
Stanton county. There the banker
caused the sheriff to levy on them to
satisfy a Judgment he held agulnst
Spoerlng, and seeks to make the at
tachment good by pointing out no
mortgage was of record at the time.
The dealers take the position that as
the consideration for the sale was the
'signing of the mortgage they did not
lose title until after the signature, at
which time Schrelber has ievied on

Lincoln, Neb., Oct. ; (Special)—La
Follette headquarters men are busy
sending out warnings to supporters
In Nebraska not to follow the advice
of certain progressive party leaders
to vote that ticket straight on the
claim that this will be an easy way
to cast a ballot for LaFollette, As a
matter of law and fact a straight pro
gressive party vote Is not a vote for
anybody for president, as it has no
candidate for that office, and Is a
different organized party from that
which carries the names of La Fol
lette and Wheeler. The two have the
same electors, but under the Nebras
ka law, electors are not directly voted
for, and the governor names only
those representing the party that has
the most votes. The suspicion Is en
tertained that some of the progres
sive party leaders were not acting In
good faith, as a straight vote is a
vote for the democratic opponent of.
Senator Norris, who also Is on the
progressive ticket.

Two Bagger By Peckinpaugn
In Last Frame Breaks 3 to 3
Tie and Brings In Winning Run
Mar berry. Relie* pitcher For Washington, Real Haro of
Second Battle of World Series—Strong Rally in
Last Turns Trick For Home Team Sunday
Universal Service Corrsspondent.
(Copyright, 1924.)
Washington, Oct. 6.—One, two,
three—the cudgel-like arm o* big
Fred Marberry of the Washington
club rose and fell in the ninth inning
of the second game of the World
Series Sunday afternoon.
One, two, threo-»the arm cata
pulted the ball, white and whirling,
past the swishing bat of young
Travis Jackson, short fielder of the
New York Giants, while "Whack"
Wilson fretted at second base with
what would have been the winning
run for the Manhattan Islanders.
One, two, three—then the shrill
voice of the Umpire Bill Klem, in
toning ‘‘he’s out."
It was the out that ended the In
ning, the out that closed a mighty
rally by the Giants, leaving the score
a tie at 3 to 3 for the moment.
Big Marberry, a tall Texan with
arms that dangle loosely from his
shoulders, moved with feh^rtibling gait
back to the bench of the Washington
club and sat there through the last
half of the ninth watching his team
mates break the tie and win the
game by the score of 4 to 3.
“Peck” Turns Trick
Roger Peckinpaugh did it with a
two bagger oft Jack Bentley, follow
ing a base on balls to Joe Judge and
a sacrifice by Bluege.
Marberry watched these incidents
stolidly. As Judge crossed the plate
with the winning run and 40,000 fans
were tongueing Washington’s Jubila
tion and tossing hats and cushions
out on the field the lanky Texan
arose, shook himself and shambled
oft toward the dressing room.
He acted no pext of the baseball
hero. He probably did not know
then that he had entered diamond
history as the winning pitcher of a
World Series game on three pitched
Marberry relieved Zachary, the
Washington lefthander, in the ninth
when the game Giants struggled up
through a two run lead to even terms
with the Washlnton club. Marberry
had been warming up” for several
innings over in front of the right
field pavlllan, his big arm lifting and
falling steadily. Occasionally he
turned his head to look at the game,
then would resume his “warming
Great “Relief Pitcher”
Marberry has generally been
“warming up” during the past sea
son when the Washington club was
on the field. He has been called the
greatest “relief” pitcher that ever
lived, “a relief’ pitcher being the
man of the baseball emergency who
is rushed In, generally at the last
minute, to stem the tide of defeat.
Marberry, who is little more than
a recruit, has been In more than
60 games for Washington this season
and has started only a few. In most
of the games he went in to hold a
lead when some other pitcher was
floundering. It Is not a role In which
pitchers win their greatest fame.
The Washington battle line was in
full retreat when Marberry came
shambling up from the "warm up”
station Sunday afternoon. It was
crumpling under a surprise attack
from the Giants delivered at a moment
when Washington seemed to be a
sure winner.
Jackson Dangerous Man
Young Travis Jackson is a dan
gerous hitter at any time. He was
particularly dangerous at thia mo
ment, under the conditions. A single
would score the fast “Whack” Wil
son, the baseball pride of the little
village of Lelpersvlile, Pa., from sec
ond with the winning run.
The big crowd, depressed by the
unexpected turn of events Just aa It
was celebrating & Washington vic
tory, probably had little hope as
Marberry came In, passing the de
jected Zachary on his way to the
bench. A baseball crowd always
fears ths worst for the home team,
Marberry, a towering figure on the
mound, wasted no time in prelimin
aires. He lifted his arm—one! The
ball driven with all the power of
Marberry’s muscles, fairly slashed
the air as It passed Jackscn and fell
Into "Muddy" Ruel’s fat glove with
a thud. Jackson did not hit at the
ball and Klem called It a trike. He
made furious swings at the next two
pitches and missed the ball each time
fully a foot.
“You can’t hit ’em when you can’t
see’em,’’ o!d_ Ping Bodie once re
marked. Jackson prcDably didn’t sea
Zachary Pivchcs W2II
Zachary, another montcf of the
tall, lanky species of pitener which
Is a distinct tribe In Itself, and who
comes from North Carolina, pitched
fairly well up to the ninth. ’ His full
name is Jonathan Thompson Zacn
ary. When he came into the big
league, some writer thought he
needed a more picturesque title, so
Jonathan Thompson Zachary became
Jezobel Teeumseh. But his name is
Jonathan Thompson Just the same.
He has a way of “slopping" the
ball up at the batters, slow an«l, that bothered the Giants quite
a bit. Big Jack Bentley, McGraw’s
$66,000 southpaw from Maryland,
pitched well until the ninth when ha
turned In that base on balls. A base
on balls Is never good pitching, espe
cially when it becomes the winning
Bill Klem, umpiring at the plate,
had one very close decision which
caused the denizens of Washington
to scowl at him afterwards. It gave
the Giants one of the two runs they
scored in the ninth. The final score
was the same as the scoro in tha
12 Inning game Saturday. It >■
developing that these are two bull
dog teams that are fighting this
series, both of them dead game and
evenly matched. The fur will be fly
ing all week.
Game Full of Thrills
The game was full of pearls of
playing. Bluege, the Senators young
third baseman, revealed most re
markable judgment in twice going
after close double plays with a Giant
running home from third. In the
first Inning, after Tom Zachary had
gotten off to an appaling bad start,
he shot the ball to complete a double
play to end the Inning just as Freddy
Llndstrom crossed the plate. He al
lowed George Kelly to score the
Giant's first run in the seventh In
order to make two outs and remove
the Glams rrom threating positions
and possibly other runs, there being
none out at the time.
Bluege, Harris and Judge handled
these double plays In lightning
fashion. Peck also showed a great
pair of paws In the field.
There was only one error, marked
against Harris, who threw a trifle
high to Peck for a forced play at
second but many thought this was
stretching a point. It was very close
play any way.
Zachary allowed only six hits In
eight and two thirds Innings and had
the sympathy of all when withdrawn
and Fred Marberry sent in after the
Giants had tied the score In the ninth
with two runs on a pass and two
hits. Bentley also allowed but six
hits, but two of them were homers
by Goslin and Harris, and Zachary
had the edge, though Inclined to get
in the hole at times.
Frisch’s Injured finger didn’t seem
to bother him the slightest and few,
if any* could have duplicated his
scoring from first by Inches In a
diving slide under Ruel when Kelly
singled to right In the nlntn and Rice
and Harris collaborated in the bril
liant relay.
We doubt If Groh, out with a
twisted knee, could have done better
at third than the 19 year old Freddy
Two of the four passes by Zachary
were converted into runs. But so
were two of tour Issued by Bentley.
It was n^ame in which the most was
made df everything. The Senators
played ftfl- more steady than Satur
day. As Helnle Miller, sports editor
of the Washington Herald, remarked
"They had too much sentiment la
their heads yesterday, but today they
had only baseball and fight in mind.”
Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 5.—(Special)—

Captain Gets Real Kick Out
Of Winning Battle For
Captain Washington Senators.
(Copyright, 1924)
Washington, Oct. 5.—I’ve lived *
lot of thrills in my time and known
a lot of happy moments. But I’v®
lived none nor known any joy greater
than came to me Suifday afternoon
when I was able to reach one of Jack
Bentley’s twisters and bust up a ball
When I saw that old horsehid®
whistling safely through the Infield
t?nd saw Joe Judge making a wild
and successful dash for home withr
the winning run in the ninth—welt,
that was glad stuff.
The game wasn’t an awful lot un
like the opener. The Giants Jumped
Into their lead Saturday with two
home runs. We did the same S n
day. We tied it up in tlie ninth Sat
urday; the Giants did it Sunday, f-nd
then the team which had the curly
lead finally won out Just ns it did
The Giants proved again and agaira
that they are real warriors. When
we went into our first inning lead,
the Giants began the desperate effort
to catch up with us and then to pas®
us. They made a groat rally In th®
fourth, another in the seventh and
then came through with two runs and
a tie in the ninth.
But we beat them in the end be
cause moments when Zachary was in
trouble our boys rallied with sumirl*
defensive work and pulled Zac!*
clear. In the ninth when Zaeh falt
ered. we called on “Old Reliable" Fred
Marberrr, and Fred delivered like th®
marvelous pinch pitcher lie has been
all through 1924.
Assisted by Stanley Harris, Ossi®
Bluege made a great play in the first
inning which really saved the gam®
for us. The Giants had the sack®
loaded, only one out and the hard hit
ting Emil Meusel up. It looked bad
for us. But Ossie and Stanley came
through with a chain lightning doubt®
Goslin’s terrific clout In the first
was the most terrific hit of the series.
His home run drive Into the center
field bleachers travelled with rifi®
bullet power and scored Rice ahead,
giving us a two run lead which w®
never afterwards surrendered.
Our victory Sunday gives us un
faltering confidence as regards win
ning the series. We got by with
Zachary. I think George Mogridg®
and his slow ball will bother th®
Giants. And then we can come back
with Walter Johnson, who had all th®
hard luck In the world Saturday, but)
will have another kind when he face*
the Giants again.
