Ol 7-9 21 O St. OPPOSITE CITY HALL
Nebraska has made progress along other lines than the develop
ment of her resources. She has developed wonderfully along political
lines. Here she is, right in the middle of a presidential campaign, and
khe isn't sweating blood, rending her nether garments or pawing the
circumambient atmosphere. She is attending to business, looking to
the future with hope and possessing her soul in patience. Twenty
years ago this time she would have neglected everything looking like
l.usiness to get out upon the corner and yawp in seventeen languages.
Her children would have been lugging evil-smelling kerosene torches
or blowing through flambeaux. Not so now. It takes an orator of
international reputation to get out a crowd as big as an ordinary dog
f-ght would attract. And it pleases us mightily that this is so. , It
demonstrates beyond question that Nebraskans are thoughtful stu
dents, close observers and quite beyond the danger of political
We have never succumbed to the automobile bug, and for a num
ber of reasons. First, we never had money enough to buy one, and of
course the other reason are not material. We admit, however, that
we've spent enough for baby carriages in the last twenty-five years to
l ave purchased quite some buzz wagon. Other than this kind of
a horseless carriage we never expect to own.
October 1 every newspaper, magazine and periodical in the
United States must file with the postoffice authorities full information
concerning itself its owners, stockholders, editors, publishers, polit
ical affiliation, etc. Will Maupin's Weekly will forestall the govern
ment in this. It is owned absolutely by AVill M. Maupin. It is edited
by him, and published by him. It is as independent as porker on ice,
its circulation is all that is claimed, there are no strings on it, and the
subscription price is one dollar a year whieh we need.
Rube Kissinger Recovers Lost Ball
From Behind Catcher's Mask In
Time to Retire Batsman and
Win Game for His Team.
Odd occurrences in baseball are ot
Interest to the fans, especially if they
! are acquainted with the players who
figure in them.
Arthur Irwin used to tell of how he
iron a game for Boston with a hit that
bounced through a knothole in the
' fence, and of another occasion when
he scored from first base on the in
field grounder when the ball got tan
gled up In the shortstop's sweater
poat. " ' :
Al Shaw hit a ball in Macon that
bounced into the pocket of a work
man's coat, which was hanging on the
i fence. A smart outfielder secured the
ball in time to hold Shaw on second.
But Elmer Steele, Toronto's pitch-;
er, has a story that puts all these
plays in the remote background.
It is no less than a pitcher making a
strike-out by himself, and thereby
irinning the game.
The pitcher was Rube Kissinger,
well known in Toronto and on the In
ternational league circuit, and the
game in question was" played at New
ark, with Providence and Newark the
competing clubs. Steele was pitch
ing for the Grays.
Newark led by 2 to 1, but Provi
dence had two men on bases in the
ninth and two out. A hit would win
the game, but Kissinger was equal to
the emergency. He cut one across
the middle of the plate.
"Strike one." the umpire said.
- A spitter fooled the batter, who
missed it a foot, and the count was
Then followed two "wasters," but
the batter would not bite. Another
tpitter right over the heart of the
The batter took a good healthy
swing, there was a tick of the bat,
and everybody started to run.
Larry Spahr, who was catching foe
Newark, looked around aimlessly in
rain search for the missing ball.
"Staad Btill, Larry," yelled Kiss
inger, "don't move," and he ran to
wards the plate.
Spahr followed instructions lnv;
plicitly, and stood stock still.
Kissinger came running up, reached
for Spain's neck, and pulled out the
ball, which was stuck between the
mask and the pad.
"Foul ball, three strikes, batter out,'
announced the umpire, and the game
Kissinger was given the putout In
the official score, as he made the play,
and Steel says he is the only pitcher
that ever struck a batter out In this
Kansas City Ball Park Burns.
Kansas C'.-Association park, the
home of Kansas City's American asso
ciation baseball team, was destroyed
by fire Sunday that also burned a
plant of the City Ice and Storage com
pany and two residences, all near the
park. The total loss was $100,000, of
which $60,00-was sustained by the ice
company and 120,000 by George Te
beau, owner of the park and of the
local association - team. A motor fire
engine valued at $8,000 burned when
the engine stopped and firemen were
unable to move it.
Unless somebody lies like sin, it is going to be interesting to note
the information filed by such newspapers as the New York Sun, the
New York Press, Cincinnati Enquirer, St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and
others of their class. And such magazines as Harper's, Scribner's,
Tudge, and others of like class. The intent of the law is all right, but
like a lot of other "reforms," it is the same old kind of an irridescent
dream that John J. Ingalls mentioned. - '
SHECKARD IS REAL VETERAN
1's none of our business, df course, but we feel impelled to admit
that we can not understand how Robert Beecher Howell can hold on
to his job as member of the republican national committee, and at the
same time be a member of the so-called progressive party. Maybe
Brer Howell can understand it. But it strikes us that he is much in
the position of a Baptist preacher who would renounce belief in bap
tism by immersion and still hang on to his job as pastor of a Baptist
church. We admire Brer Howell for his many admirable traits, but
lie is disappointing us by not doing the square thing and resigning
as a member of the committee of a party he no longer affiliates with
i nd whose candidate he is seeking to defeat.

The Stite Horticultural society will hold its annual apple show
in the Auditorium in Lincoln. We have not consulted any of the offi
cers of the society, but we'll venture to say they will gladly give
space to exhibits from the much vaunted 'apple country of the north
west, providing our northwestern friends will guarantee a fair state
ment of the facts in the newspapers of that region. We are right here
to say that when it comes to apples, apple lands and possibilities for
orcharding for profit, Nebraska has got the northwest states crouch
ing behind the refrigerator and pleading for help.
What a lot of kindly assistants the editors have these days. They
offer to provide us with all the copy we can possibly use. Here is a
long article from the "progressive national "committee," telling why
Thomas A. Edison is for Roosevelt. We are notified that we are at
liberty to use the article and that it may be published any time after
September 2:. By the side of it is a wad of stuff from the republican
national committee, and we are assured by the aforesaid committee
that the people are yearning for just such reading matter. Again we
are at liberty to use it, paying the composition bills out of our own
pocket. And the democratic national commitee pats us on the back,
paregorically speaking, telling us what a fine fellow we are and ask
ing us. to print about seven columns of hogwash written by some
political hack writer who has got a stand-in with some big man on
the committee. And while these committees are asking the "country
press', to publish their stuff without price, they are paying enormous
prices for space in the big magazines. You'll look a long, long time
tre you see any of this "national "committee" hogwash in the columns
of this little newspaper.
