The Came at the Ball Park Yester
day Played In Mud--Hastings
Won From Grand Island
No Game at
Lincoln 8. Plattsmouth 2.
When the mud Iihh readied the
(leith of about nix inches on the
level and the cloud threaten every
moment to add just a little tnoie to
it, then it is hardly to be expected
that the populace will clamor at the
gates to get a chance to spend
their good, hard-earned cash for :
This Htate of weather existed yes
terday and on that account a small
crowd was present to see the great
and only team on the face of the
earth bury itself in ssickclolh and
ashes and nwal low great, toothsome
bowls of soup.
Plattsmouth has the pennant win
nersin our imagination. Yester
day the despised Lincoln team
went out to the park and disported
themselves like mud horses with
the carcasses of the alleged win
tiers. Ihev had with them a man
named Castone. His name re
minds- us of the bitter past when he
came into this village with a sable
club known as the Lincoln Giants
ami cruelly and without provoca
tion swiped the earth with our
beloved base ballists.
Hut let the dead past bury its
dead. Castone yesterday repeated
his former success. IMattsmouIh
couldn't touch him at any time
when they wanted 1o. When the3'
didn't need hits they had them in
strings, but when thej- did need
them air was the only available
circumstance in sight.
IMaiismouih started out wilb
Long at the stick. lie got to first
on an error and then let Mr. Fear
throw him out when he sprawled in
the mud. Long was indiscreet.
Then Johnson struck out. John
Patterson then Hew out to right
When Lincoln came in Fowler
went out to Johnson. Pender got a
base on balls, and, aided by a
couple of timely hits shoved in by
Fear and Van Ariiam, tallied. Fear
was kindly permitted to tally on
Van Arnam's hit and a brace of
Then in the third inning Fear got
a base on balls and added another
unearned run to Lincoln's string
later on. Van Arnam also in this
inning got first on an error, and,
aided by an error and a sacrifice by
Here. the score stood 4 to 0, in
favor of Lincoln. And then House
worth wanted the game called.
The local management became
afflicted with the idea that the peo
ple were chumps, or something
similar. They called the game and
tried to dismiss the crowd. They
gave back no rain checks or return
tickets, but asked the multitude to
disperse. The multitude did not
disperse worth s cent. It hungered
for more massacre, and it got it.
In Lincoln'.-; half of the fourth
there wer- inati3- and nun.erors
errors and base hits concealed
about the teams and thev combined
together and gave Lincoln 4 runs
in their part.
Sow the score stood 8 to 0, in
favor of Lincoln. It looked like a
shutout, but it wasn't. Kennedy
harvested a run in the sixth for
l'lausmoiuh and Myers got
anoihe.- ?n tue sevenl'.i. and the
gmie ent'ed 8 to '1.
The change from Kee es to Yapp
was effected Ii the fifth 'lining and
was a good one. No scoes were
made off Yapp. Maupin led in
batting. Fear and Castone hit the
ball for Lincoln.
There was one feature of yester
day's game that ought to be cut off
short. The habit ol "roasting" the
umpire by the crowd is one that
the management cannot tolerate,
fli eusel's work yesterday was excel
lent and no fault should be found
If the Pla smotlh crowd v 11
lea ':i to disperse .".s applause
where it will do the most good, in
stead of f-ricg it iuio the d'amond
at random, then the home team
may be encouraged to live. Yes

taken from the Lincoln Journal:
A disastrous wreck in which three
lives were hurled into eternity with
out a moment's warningoccurred on
the Burlington at Squaw creek three
and a half miles west of Crete at 0:10
yesterday morning. Train No. 4,
due here at 7:15, was thundering to
ward Lincoln, carrj'ing its load of
drowsy passengers, all unconscious
of the impending danger, when the
engine plunged into a washed out
culvert. The scene that followed
was indescribable. The mail car
next the engine was hurled clear
over the locomotive and landed
crossways on the track. Three oth
er ca i s were derailed and piled one
upon another, while the front of
the engine was resting in the ditch
The greatest confusion reigned
among the passengers and train
men. The mail clerk in the car that
was hurled over the engine, was res
cued and escaped with comparative
slight injuries, incredible as it may
appear. Kngineer G. R. Ford es
ca'.u .v",.i silgi;. injuries, while
Fireman II. P. Shriner was instantly
ki'led. The bod'es of two unknown
tramps who were presumably steal
ing a ride were found cold in death.
