13th Street All Stars Lose to Mer
chants' Team of This City by
a Score of 9 to 5.
Prom Monday's Daily.
For two hours yesterday afternoon
the fans of the city watched the
struggles of the 13th Street All Stars
of Omaha to escape the inevitable
defect that was headed their way
when the Plattsmouth Merchants
ball team opened the season with a
9 to 5 victory over the Omaha ag
gregation. The Omaha team was lacking the
pep and good playing that they
showed here last reason and were
unable to play the heady ball that
was necessary to win the game while
the Plattsmouth team showed much
good headwork in the stages of the
game where the visitors showed any
dangerous signs of forging to the
William Mason, the choice of Man-
ager Wolff for the mound, pitched a .
good game and held the visitors to
few and scattered hits, although a
few errors gave them their opportun
ity of scoring. Plattsmouth drew
three scores in the opening inning
and from then on kept the lead over
the Omaha gang, and it was not un
til the fifth frame that the visitors
even had a look in at the big end of
the gate money. In the fifth the
Plattsmouth team had a five to one
lead when the All Stars with two
hits and a few bobbles on the part of
the locals were able to register three
runs and brought the score up to
five to four. In the sixth, however,
the Merchants added two more runs
and drew away from the Omaha
team, which was unable to put over
any more runs for the remainder of
the contest.
This was the first real game of
the season and gave the fans an op-
portunity of seeing the team at work s
and the new faces that decorate the
line up this year showed up well
throughout. "Packy" McFarl&nd at
short and Shephenisoii as catcher
Loth showed speed and-' win make
good men for the team. The keystone
sack was held by O'Donnell. , with
Herold at second and Harry Newman
at the third station. Connors, Nelson
and Spreacher are decorating the out-
garden this year, with Bill Mason
filling in when not doing the hurling
The Omaha team was apparently '
not well versed in the playing of the
national pastime and their errors and j
poor playing were responsible for
assisting the Merchants in getting
many cf their runs. The visitors
were accompanied by a number of
rooters from the Italian section of
the street of all nations and who
with their team indulged in more or
less rag chewing that contributed to
making the game as long as it was,
as there were several waits while the
rules of playing the game were dis-
cussed, by the Omaha team and um-
pire Ed Kelly, but in which the
-Ump" came off the winner
During the game yesterday after
noon a foul ball found its way thru
a Tiole in the wire that protects the
front of the grandstand and the foul

Those who were traveling through

amusing incident that occurred near
that place -on the highway. A party
of gentlemen were traveling and had
stopped along the roadside and
alighted from their car and their ef
forts to get back into the trusty

of the onlookers. The parties in get

Young Men's Bible Class of the Meth
odist church enjoyed a fine time at
their class room when Attorney W.
A. Robertson gave the young men
a most pleasing talk on the law,
their origin and their operation. The
speaker held the close attention of
the members and made a plea for
less laws and more simple ones that
would be possible to most rigidly
enforce and thereby create a strict
respect for law which the many
freak measures had had a tendency
to weaken in recent years. The
young men enjoyed the opportunity
of getting some plain facts about
the law and its workings in a series
of questions that Mr. Robertson very
kindly answered.
