Lincoln got lmpplly out of tho state league,
of base bull tennis. When sho did drop out
she was awarded no end of sarcastic censure
by some of the smaller sister cities who took
up the burden Lincoln laid (low 11 , mil started
out with tho utmost bruvndo. Among the
most snreastlo of all criticisms ennio from
Fremont and riattsiiiouth. In tho furmer
city tho brightest lights of tho newspaper
profession waxed exceeding and excru
cintingly funny because Lincoln concluded
to drop out of slow company. Itittheiefore
surpiislng to note that tno dead ganio sports
of Fremont wero tho (list to conclude that
the state lenguu was not a very good thing
to tie to. I'lattsmoutli soon did an ignomin
ious likewise, If tho expression may be per
mitted. The league now constitute Beatrice,
Hastings, Oinuil Island and Kearney, who
nre clinging 011 desperntely In the hope of
retrieving losses that hnvo been sustained.
One thing hns been npparent Irom tho start.
It Is that Nebraska cimiks want good ball or
none. If tho stnto lenguu reorganizes next
year it will doubtless lie with an increased
salary limit tint will securo ball pliiyeis. As
It W now some of the tennis have gone so far
past tho limit that they have forgotten all
about it, but they haveu't played ball to any
Oho of 4he evening pnpera which usually
rides its hobby horse backwards has started
out for once fnce foremost. It advocates
opening up and beautifying the city park.
Itlsn pioject which should command tho
support of the people, were it advocated by
a circus poster, and probably will in this in
stance be In due time successful. One mem
ber of the council had started out with thnt
end in view ero the project was publicly ngi
tnted. With slight expense the present city
park could lie mndo n )iopulurmid attractive
resoi t. The shede, the biond wnlks, the grass
and the breeze are already there. A little
ltoHshlng, modest Moral decointlon, a few
fountains mid tho requisite illumination
would be nil the elements uecessnry to popu
larity and usefulness. The wile fence should
l.o torn away, not only because It is unsightly
and unnecessary, but because it Is dangerous
mid unlawful. Councilman Veith ami his
colleagues, If any ho may have with him in
the project, are on the rhht track.
There aro quite a number of Individuals In
Lincoln who would shine as favorites at
Monte Carlo. They thrive olf the avarice of
their associates. Their cultivated wits and
tricks enable them to win the favor of Dame
of Its minions, few or them have access to
sK't table homes. Now and the.ll some paper
starts 11 noisy mid braggait criisiulo against
tiiein, hut they go quietly along in their
beaten path mid in a short time the crusade
