It may bo said truthfully that nnno of tlio

Of playini ; ball on Sunday , had they buen
arrested tor such desecration of the day of
rest yesterday. The nearly three thousand
people who paid admittance and for the lux
ury of scats or bunches to witness n national
pnino were not fairly compensated. Undrr
the rules of this juar the batting and score
record Is certainly expected to be hlghd than
it has been In previous yearn , but It Is not
expected to reach the extraordinary figure
of thirty-nine runs In one game , which was
the result of yesterday's contest. The Omaha
and Lincoln bnso ball clubs were not nlone
playing one of tin ; championship Raines of the
Western tonsrno yesterday. They were also
playing for the pleasure of three thousand
lovers of the sport who had gone to the
grounds and paid their money to see as ear
nestly contested and ns skilfully p'.iiyed ' a
( tame ns the opposing nines were capable of.
The looseness of the playing was , therefore ,
as subject to criticism as Is the bad acting of
& theatrlcalcompany who can do better. Both
the Omaha and Lincoln clubs can play ball if
they try. Yesterday the most ol their play-
lli t was done with their mouths. Kspecially
was tills true of the visltois. From the lirst
Inning to nearly the completion of the came
the captain of the Llncolns , Howe , made

Kicking upon every concel".iblu excuse.

over him. lie then ran off his base to kick
Ulor.avin , and whllo engaged In this sonie-

put out. For a minute a war cloud loomed
In the horizon beeauso Dwver had his war
paint on. The umpire , however , quieted the
{ rouble by personally Intortering and calling
Dwyer in.
The fourth Inning resulted In Omaha In
creasing the score by three , while Lincoln r -
Juld the compliment by adding lour to its
tally sheet.
The litth inning found the score standing
12 to 11. Omaha batted terrifically and in
creased the 1" to ID. Thu Llncolns then
wielded the willow so vigorously that three
runs wore scored before they had really
warmed up to their work. O'Loary was
being hit right and left and ho failed to stop
two palpably easy grounders. Walsh thereupon - .
upon changed him , putting Uourke In the
box. Krchiurycr , who mid been facing
O'Lcary's hot and wild balls like n Trojan ,
Btlll remained behind the bat and caught
well , although It was evident the Intense
beat and length of the game were trying on

vent tlui Llncolns , however , from climbing
two totches higher in their score and the in
ning closed with them ahead one run , the
game standing , Omaha IS , Lincoln 10.
In the sixth Inning both nines played ball ,
and In the seventh inning the game was at
nn equally Interesting point , the Lincoln
club retiring in onu , two , three order , and
the Omahas Again taking tlie lead by making
two runs.

cipher on the tirat half of the eighth Inning

A. Decided Improvement Follows a
Itonrlali MoTomcnt.
NEW VUIIK , May 8. ( Special Telegram to
the JlKK. ] Whllo the stock speculation dur
ing the greater part of the week wan con-
lined to curators Inside of the walls of the
stock exchange , and while the market at in
tervals degenerated Into a mere trader's one ,
yet there weio some wide tluctuatlons such
as do not usually occur under that condition
of affairs. The boars were In control at the
start and succeeded In bringing about a do-
cllno of nearly 3 points In New England ,
nnd made a lighter Impression on other
shares , but when the railway tralllc returns
for the fourth week of April came to hand
and figures generally showed tin Increase
over last year , whereas those operating on
short side of account had been predicting n
heavy falling ofT , there was a marked rever
sal of the course of prices. This was a com
plete surprise for the bears and they nuulo
naste to cover , the result of which
is an Improvement. The street was
treated to several sensations , ono being
In Fort Worth & Denver City , which jumped
over 14 points on covering by those who had
sold the week short against dnposlta uf the
same in the trust company , according to an
agreement under which subscriptions were
made to the construction company now
building extensions ; and another In Hock
Island , which roe 7 points , the advance hav
ing been started by the reports of a "melon , "
and afterward materially assisted by the
bidding up process on the part ot one of
the boldest of traders. Some oilier stocks ,
notably Jersey Central , New England ,
Tennessee coal and Iron , Milwaukee. Lake
Shore it Western and Alton A Terre Haute ,
rose34f points , nnd the rest of the list to a
smaller extent , the Vanderbllts , ( hangars ,
Wabnsh , and 1'acilic Mall , nnd some of the
specialties having been conspicuously strong.
After the demand from the shorts had been
supplied , and London did not send the buy
ing orders that were expected , the room
traders and wolesslonai boars hammered the
lists , paying particular attention to New
England. While the events of the week ha o
again demonstrated that It Is much easier to
lilt than depress prices , it is to be said that
the market Is a narrow one , and operators do
not wait long on cither sidn for results ,
which conduces to rapidity ol changes.
In railway bomlsa larco business was done
and in some Instances the changes were un
usually Important. Among those- that were
prominent in this resuect were the Wa-
bashes , which rose K@OK points on rumors
of a settlement with the purchasing commit
tee , nnd Green Hay Incomes , which jumped
4 > points on the Increased earnings and on
ieports that efforts were being made in the
interest of ceitain roads to obtain control of
the line.
As the tlmo approaches for rntesof Interest
to rule lower capitalists are more disposed to
place their funds in good railway mortgage1) ,
especially as the tralllc returns of the roads
arc more favorable ) than hnvo been expected
under the Inter-state commerce law.
Governments were lower , particularly for
Is , for which the demand was less active.
Foreign exchanges were alternately lirm
and weak. The limited supply of commer
cial bills would have led to an advance early
in the week had it not been for the light de
mand. The latter had Its influence near the
close , when bankers' bills became more
abundant. With the appearance of these
bills the market weakened and the final busi
ness was done at the lowest Quotations
Money on call , during the greater part ot
the week , was accessible at 4@5 per cent.
At inlurvals rates ran tin to 0@8 aud down
2i$3 ( $ per cent , but they did not reflect the
true condition of the market , which was
comfortable throughout to such borrowers as
are well known at the banks and had accept
able collaterals.
Experiments Soon to He Made Upon
a Now Torpedo.
NEW TOIIK , May 8. { Special Telegram
to the UKK.I The United States naval tor
pedo board , which was lu session at the
Brooklyn navy yard last week , Is soon to ex
periment with a torpedo invented by General -
oral II. liordan. Bordan has recently re
turned from Constantinople , whore experi
ments were made with this torpedo , and ho
has made contracts with nearly all foreign
powers to supply them with it , on condition
that they are satisfied with it upon trials.
The tests are to be made In this country , and
representatives of the governments with
whom he lias contracts are to come here to
witness the tests. General liordan said yes
terday : "When the English navy was
going through Its manoeuvres not lou g ago
on the Irish coast an artist for the Loudou
Graphic made a sketch of. one of the vessels
in the act of letting down n net macto of
steel , used to protect the vessel from torpe
does. The publication ot this sketch was
the Urst knowledge other government * had
of this steel net. The matter had been kept
a profound secret In the Kuirllsh navy. I
had previous knowledge of the matter and
lad for some time been at work on a torpedo
deslcned to circumvent this net. 11 takes a
1,900 pound charge ot dynamite to
penetrate twenty-four inches of armor
whereas a Whltchoad torpedo charge
is only ninety-tnroe pounds , so
that those ships weie safe at sea from all ex
isting torpedoes , even without nets , while
with this contrivance all the vessels of the
fleet could bu made secure. I set to work to
invent a torpedo which could strike the vessel
by going under the net and up under the
center of the hull of the ship. At a point
where the shin Is weak and the gas Is strong
oven a small dlchargo of dynamite will de
stroy the vessel bv uoing up under the hull.
I have succeeded In accomplishing what 1 in
tended to do and this is the torpedo which
the government is soon to test ,
and for which I have already
made contracts with foreign governments.
It consists of an arrangement fastened to
another ship with a ram and pneumatic buf
fer. When this strikes the vessel attacked it
loosens the torpedoes which are fastened by
a cabin to the attacking vessel. Uy tins
moans the torpedoes swing down and under
the net and strike under the hull of the ship
attacked. These torpedoes contain 200
ponnds of compressed cun cotton and there
Is no mistake of their work. Any kind of
boat may bo used , but it Is better to nave one
specially de.slgued for the purpose.

u a in o Nest.
Now York Sun : rora young republic
we were a most dignified people iu our po
litical habits for the lirst thirty years of
our life as tx nation , Porlmps it wns a
keen sense of the audacity of our unique
experiment in "of , by , and for govern
ment" that caused all political operations
to be charactorix.ud by gravity and great
dignity , Presidential canvasses were car
ried on as lawyers argue grave causes
before supreme courts. Schoolboys
and soldiers were permitted to
hurrah , but not politicians. Torchlights ,
bonfires , fun , and fury would have been
thought contemptible auxiliaries of an
election for president , and to display emo
tion was beneath the dignity of mon who
wore sovereigns. Public men spoke in.
formal rhetoric and in Latinized
phrases. Kven Daniel Webster was
magniloquent and in those early
days of his political life. Argu
ments were worthless that were not
ornamented by quotations irom the
classics , and rhetoric puerile that did
not permit the spouting of lines from
Cicero , Dompnsthenes , and tlio pouts.
The pamphlet was an engiiio of political
persuasion. Publius and Agricola , Sencx
and Justitia labored by means of open
letters of prodigious length to prevail
against the monarchical federalists or
the republican-democrats. The press
was great m its political essays , and very
little m its news. It reported the duel
between llurr and Hamilton in ten lines ,
and ratiocinated by the column on
abstruse political theories. The great
conventions that in these days nominate
for the presidency were then unknown.
Grave caucuses of very grave
members of congress placed the can
didates in nomination. Sometimes even
this formality was dispensed with , and
the electoral college voted for the candi
dates who were indicated by whnt is now
called the consensus of opinion. Federal
ists as a party gasped and died soon after
the war of 18ia. Calm respectability aud
conventional decorum prevailed. Pla
cidity followed , and Mr. Monroe was
elected for his second term without the
ripple of a political wave or tlio an
tagonism of an idea. To that point wo
had comeand , the danger that threatened
was that of dry rot. Then of a sudden
our whole system of political activity
was changed. We plunged into the can
vass of 18J4 with a watchword , an in
spiring cry , that stimulated men and
made them enthusiastic. It vitalized
politics. It began the splendid series of
popular and healthy turbulences which
nave eyer since characterized presidential
canvasses , and yet this inspiring cry was
simply a nickname Old Hickory.
"Nicknames , " said Napoleon , "should
not be despised ; " and it is said that
Jackson rejoiced in his sobriquet of Old
Hickory. How he earned it is in dispute ,
but once earned it stuck to him until his
death , and is ono of tlio few nicknames
of the past that have not been forgotten.
It was the first to bo cart ied into a pres
idential canvass , and it was potent be
cause it represented an idea. Andrew
Jackson represented force , courage , vi
tality , popular government without the
frills and the ceremonials of the foreign
courts , energy , and genuine democracy
strengthened by experience. This set the
sluggish political blood of that day .to
dancing , and this canvass , in which men
became enthusiastic and excited , taught
the politicians of that time that thcro
was health and vigor in this stirring up
of men , by appealing as well to their
sentiments aud emotions as to their rea
son. Stagnation had threatened" .
Hut the wild whirl of an exciting pres
idential canvass clarified and invigorated
politics. And it is precisely this most
healthy and needful element of our po
litical life that the so-called civil service
reform of to-day antagonizes. If
we could reform human nature as
well as the civil service there might be no
need of the activity , enthusiasm , energy
and other forces that come from a stimu
lation of the emotions. But while
numan nature remains what it is , we
should get our political oxygen through
these agencies , and that is a benefit that
will bo far bettor than the evil , if there
bo any , in our civil service system of
placing in the administrative ottico-men
m sympathy with the party in power. '
From the time when , under the inspira
tion of Jackson's name , men freed our
political canvasses from the appalling
dignity and solemnity that tirst oliarao-
torized them , the tendency has been to
call into play all the emotional powers ,
and we find this exemplified in the
striking and significant nicknames or so
briquets that were attached to the great
partj * leaders. Men catch at a nick
name. It brings a candidate nearer to
them. It is ono of the cquali/.ing re
sources of democracy. And so wo find
that after the charm of Old Hickory has
shown its power , there was developed
speedily not only a strong , hearty and
vigorous opposition to the party Jack
son resuscitated , but a tendency to
idealize its great loader by a sobriquet ,
and in 18'Jl the rapidly crystallizing
whig party began to talk of ' 'Harry ot
the west. "
The younger generation cannot appre
ciate the tremendous power there was in
that sobriquet. It idealized Clay. It
typified his magnetic qunlitics. It made
a political equal of a great intellect. It
matched for the whigs the enthusiasm
created by the mention of Old Hickory
among the dcluocrats.
Old Hickory's heir apparent was Mar
tin Van liurcn , aud bo went into the
White House , after a splendid canvass ,
in which the nickname of "Tho Little
Magician" played a potent part. William
Henry Harrison was then beaten by the
Little Magician , but four years later
there was a canvass for the presidency
that can only bo described as magnifi
cent. ICvory citizen was made to fool
his sovereignty m it. It was a cyclone
of political activity. Harrison was nick
named , and in every cross-road corner
men shouted for Tippecanoo and Tyler
too. Old Tip , Hard Cider , Log Cabin ,
nnd the refrain
Van , Van
Is a used-up mnn.
All these emotional stimulants stirred
men to their marrow , and vitalized our
politics so thoroughly that the effects
were felt for years.
In 1844 , four years later , "Harry of the
West" was tlio whig watchword usedand
it aroused an enthusiasm fully equal to
that displayed for Old Tip iu 1810. The
democrats had nominated a man whom
it was impossible to apply a sobriquet to.
Ho was not well known. His personality
aroused no enthusiasm , and the host they
could do for Polk was to cry : "Polk and ,
the Tarill' of ' 43. "
In 1843 tlio democrats again nomin
ated ono of the old school , General Cass.
He was not a man to idealize by a nick
name. But Taylor was a character that
suggested plenty of them. "Old Ucuna
Vista" gave hint of his military renown *
but the sobriquet that was m , every
whig'a mouta during the ctinvaaa was
"Rough and Hoadv'What a nickuamo
for a hero picked from the masses ! And
it played no unimportant part in winning
rotes for old Xach.
Fremont was idoli/od as tlio pathfinder
but perhaps tlio most batching motto of
his canvass was that invented by some
"Fremont and Jessie "
inspired genius , ,
aud thcro were tlimmmh of mon who
voted for Fremont oh'account ' of Jcisio.
Lincoln was characterized as Old Abe ,
Uncle Abe , the KalhpHltcr , but only ono
of his three antagonists had a nickname.
That however , was n lundid , "The Little
Giant. " It was worth ns much to Doug
las as many of Ins speeches , and you will
find men even to-d ywho > speak with
tender recollection of the Little Giant.
Wo have had no striking nickname
since 1800 , if wo except that given in
voluntarily to IJlaino by Hob lugersoll ,
"Tho Plumed Knlglit. " Grant was
known in the army simply as "Tho Old
Man. "
Now York state has furnished almost
all the nicknames for parties aud factions
within parties. Thirty-live years ago
the whigs derisively dubbed the demo
crats locofocos. It was rnro that you
hoard a whig speak of a democrat as any
thing but a iocofoco. Vet tlio name was
applied originally almost by way
of jest , and arose from the use
of Iocofoco matches at a
democratic meeting in old Tammany hall
( now the sun building ) . It is something
of a coincidence tint from that same
building in later years should have come
the appellation which has been univer
sally accepted as applying to the self-
appointed remnant in polilics-tho appel
lation ot Mugwumps. The great fac
tions of the Democratic party forty years
ago received their distinguishing nick
names in New York. These were the
Barnburners and Hunkers. "Tho Silver
Gray Whig" is also of New York origin.
Later it was a Now York Republican ,
lloscoo Consling , who dubbed the great
factions in the Republican party Stal
warts and Half Breeds.
In view of the part that enthusiasm
and emotional vigor hare played in all
succcssfuj canvasses since 1828 , demo
cratic politicians'mnst regard the canvass
of next year as ono which will call upon
all their resources to excite their healthy
passions. He will be a genius indeed
who will invent a nickname for Presi
dent Cleveland that will stimulate men
when they hear it. And he will be even
greater who will coin the watchword for
the . "Turn "
canvass. the rascals out ,
won't do. That was one of the cries in
" 84 , but they were not turned out much
faster than big lenses for telescopes
are. Reform ? Yet Colonel Wattersou
asserts that the star-eyed goddess weeps.
Wipe out the surplus ? But that would bo
twilling on facts , it would be a sarcasm.
In order to have the watchword and the
sobriquet that expresses a living , genuine
democratic idea , there must bo found the
man. There are some. There would bo
n heap of enthusiasm , for instancein tlio
laconism of Governor Hill. " 1 am a
democrat. " Tliat would bo a platform.
There's enthusiasm enough bottled up in
that exprrssio to sorya for a dozen cam
paigns. Yet it would not be likely to win
the mugwump vote. " *

their power to make it odious and to

Biianco. TlirotiKh rates have buon ( jrcady
ndvancrd without local rates
being lowered. No disposition lias
been shown to nnply to tlio commission -
mission for Iccitinmta cxeniptions
from the long and short haul clause or
for tliu privilege of making special rules
under special circumstances. In short ,
cverytliing which could inlluenco tlio
public mind ngnlnst the now law has
boon skilfully brought forward nnd used
and thn benefits to arise from tliu law as
skilkully kept in the background.
Hut tlio railroads liavo not been en
tirely successful lu their attempt to pull
tlio wool over the eyes of tlio people.
Even hero in San 1'r.uicisco n strong rep
resentation of business men have entered -
tered into n vigorous protest with
the commission against tliu suspen
sion of tlio long nnd short lirxul
clause , anil the Protestants urn men of
standing in the business community , rep
resentatives of large amounts of invested
capital , and have the interests of the
state anil city quite as much at heart us
those who have opposed tlio enforcement
of section 4.
The commissioners have , it is possible ,
ncteil discretely in temporarily suspend
ing this section of the law , although it i.s
not clear that they have not exceeded
their jurisdiction tn so doing. The sus
pension was granted in order
to give tlmo to hoar and de
termine the conflict which has
grown out of the long and short haul
section ; but if tlio railroad companies are
to be allowed to interpret it as they
please , without objection from their
patrons , the suspension might
ns well bo made perpetual.
It is possible that nt the next session of
congress some umendment of the law
may be advisable , in order to diminish
the friction in some particulars , hut the
law must not bo repealed. It is founded
upon principles of justice and
equity , and only aims to
compel common carriers to per
form their obligations to tlio people , and
such a law , even though it may require n
readjustment of detnils , is too valuable to
be allowed to disappear from tliu statute
books. The great underlying principle
of the law must lie preserved , and the rai-
road companies must be compelled to ad
just themselves to it. They must learn
that the people have rights which even
railroad corporations must respect ; and
ns soon as this important lesson is per
fectly understood by them , there will bo
no further difficulty with the intor-statc
commerce law or any similar legislative
