Vinton Express Team of Omaha is
Trimmed Up by a Score of 5
to 1 Here Yesterday.
From Monday's Dally.
Yesterday afternoon the well
known Vinton Express ball team,
hailing from that portion of Omaha
made famous for its ball park, jour
neyed down to mix it up on the local
lot and as the result of the meeting
with the Merchants of this city, the
local ball tossers were the winners
by the store of 5 to 1.
Right away in the opening stanza
of the sporting event, the visitors
started cutting up and McCulloch,
the first man up was safe when he
binged a nasty one to third that
"Hons" failed to connect with, and
the result was that the Oraahan was
safe at the keystone station and ad
vanced when Baker registered a safe
hit off one of Mason's slants and ad
vanced to third while Schwer was
striking out. Emkey, the husky
backstop of the visitors, drove one in
the direction of the second bag that
Mason attempted to snag and the
result was an error that allowed Mc
Culloch to score. This was the only
tally of the game as far as the Ex
press boys were concerned and al
though they were threatening in
the third and fifth innings they were
unable to get far.
In the third inning. Garvey, who
had been hit freely, as well as show
ing signs of a blow-up, was relieved,
and Rocheford substituted, and he
worked very effectively the rest of
the game.
In the sixth, the visitors had a
general shake up and the changes
made strengthened the defensive
work of the team to a great extent.
Garvey during his three innings was
nicked for eight hits, gave two walks
and had only one strikeout. Roche
ford faired better however, as he
was nicked for only two hits, struck
out three and gave one walk.
For the local team the opener saw
two runs placed to the credit of the
home guard. Herold lifted a foul to
Wages at third while O'Donnell se
cured a scratch hit to second and
traveled around to third and scored
when Garvey let loose of a wild one.
Newman rapped a clean hit to center
field and was followed by Shepherd
with a safety that scored Newman.
McCarthy hit into a double at third.
Shepherd being thrown out at sec
ind and Joe at first.
In the second round the locals pro
ceeded to put the game on velvet as
far as scores were concerned. Gro-
meter was retired on a strikeout.
Burns drove a clean one "to center
and later scored on a wild heave of
Garvey toward the home plate. Wink
Spreacher was walked and advanced
when Mason hit to second. Herold
hit safe to right and scored Spreach
er and Pete scored when two hit3
by O'Donnell and Newman to right
opened the way for an easy tally.
Mason in his six innings on the
mound allowed one safe hit, struck
out five and passed three and Joe Mc
Carthy, who relieved him in the
seventh struck out seven men in
three innings and did not allow a hit
or a walk.

Gather This Year at Park at Weep
ing Water and a Large Num
ber Participate in Event.
The annual reunion cf the Cook
family was held on Sunday at the
city park in Weeipng v ater and was
one filled with much pleasantness
for the members of this pioneer fam
ily, whose history has been so close
ly identified with the progress ol
the county in the last fifty years
It had been planned to hold the
reunion at the home of the eldest
member of the family, Mrs. Bina
Kitzel at Alvo, but owing to her poor
health it wa3 changed to the park
at Weeping Water where ample ac
comodations were found for the ar
ray of descendants cf this family
who came from all over Cass county
and points at a distance.
As is usual at these family gath
erings the time was spent mainly in
visiting and having a real reunion
of the family and which was the
most pleasing part of the day to ev
eryone. Other features included the
musical numbers on the piano and
short talks by the elder members of
the family and the recounting of the
stories of early days in Nebraska and
Cass county.
It was decided to form an associ
ation to handle the reunions in the
future and for this fvpose Frank
Cook of Alvo was. elected as presi
dent and Miss May Drenmer of Lin
coln as secretary. It was also decided
to hold the reunion next year at
the Weeping Water park.
Of the original family, three of
the brothers, Philip Cook of Norfolk,
John of Beaver City, and J. D. of
Ord, Nebraska, and one sister, Mrs.
Kitzel, were absent from the family
There were over 100 members of
the family present and the occasion

Well Enough to Travel
Lincoln, June 19. Governor Mc
Kelvie today received a telegram
from Dr. L. N. Kell, prison physi
cian at Rawlins that Brown was re
covered sufficiently to travel.
The Siefken murder looms as the
biggest charge against Brown, in
case witnesses decide he is the man
they saw fleeing from the scene of
the shooting or lurking in the vicin
ity just before the crime was com
mitted.' It was also said at the police sta
tion at Omaha last night that Brown
is the man who held up an automo
bile party of Loyal Cohn's near an
exclusive West Farnum residence
shortly before the Siefken slaying
took place.
Gus Hyers yesterday wired County
Attorney Shotwell that the latter's
wishes in the matter would be hon
ored, but Shotwell decided that the
better place for Brown to recover is
the Lincoln penitentiary hospital.

met with a most generous response
from the business men of the city to
that the Elks band wil be secured for
the entire day to play in the parade
as well as on the street in the morn
ing and at the park in the afternoon.
Owing to the expense incident to
the turning exhibition and the tour
nament that is to be staged by the
representatives of several of the
cities of the state here on that day.
it had been planned to make a small
admission charge but this has been
changed and the admission to the
park will be free.
The parade which will move from
the K. S. hall to the main portion
of the city and up Main street and
back to the park will be made as
general as possible and every society
or order of the city that desires is
invited to participate in the parade.
The program will be one that will
cover the entire day and will be well
worth attending.
