A Talk With President Spalillng.
CIIICAQO , Sept. 93. [ Special Telegram to
the UKK.I A reporter to-day talked with
President Spsldlnir , of the Chicago base ball
club , regarding the reported remarks of John
Ward , Now York's short stop , on the Brother
hood of Ball Players. Ward was reported to
have said that President Young , ot the Na
tional league , , has declined to receive any
communication from the Brotherhood as nn
organi/atlon , and has In other ways made
plain his purpose of totally Ignoring It That
. President Young would act In this manner
unless his course was directed by the other
members of the League , Mr. Ward does not
President Spaldlng , In the course of his
talk about this , said : "The matter was
brought up Informally while we were at
Asbury Park a month ago. Mr. Young said
he had received a personal letter from Ward
wanting to know If the League would moot
the players In convention. The matter WAS
Informally discussed nnd It was the prevail
ing opinion that there was no objection ; In
fact , the League would like to do ft"
"I suppose they answered that missive ? "
"I suppose so. The rest of my Informa
tion came through the press. "
"Do you think It would bo possible for
capitalists to step In between now and next
spring or summer and organize a base ball
association with these crack players , pro
vided they got enough of them , in big cities ,
like Chicago and New York and obtain
grounds that would be accessibleto the
public ? "
"That Is a business question that every
man would have to answer for himself. My
experience would not warrant mo In Invest
ing much money In the scheme. "
lu further talk about League affairs Mr.
Spaldlnu said the Sa.ooo limit on salaries had
been a dead letter fur some time , lie has
heard nothing about Clarkson'H alleged In
tention to go to lioston next year and says
the talk about letting Burns out Is entirely
A Base Dall Trureaty.
A handful ot people witnessed a very
poorly played exhibition game between the
Omabas and Hastings yesterday afternoon.
The local team , as usual , opened up In a
promising way and scored two runs. Then
they were unable to knock a man across the
plate until the eighth Inning , when on three
safe hits , two ot them being three-baagera ,
they piled up live tallies. In the ninth they
were whitewashed. The Hastings scored
one In the first , four In the third , two In the
ntth , and the winning rnn In the ninth.
Both teams played In a listless , careless
manner , and the game was a travesty on the
great national pastime. The players of these
two teams evidently think this Is the last
year of professional ball playing and that It
doesn't make any difference ) what kind of a
game they put up. Probably , very likely In
foot , It Is thn last j ear for the majority of
them. Following Is the score :

.A MEMORABLE BANQUET.
The Fcaat Given By the Doeriug Com *
pnny to Tholr Men.
Ono of the most on joyablo little dinner
parties that ever occurred in Omaha was
held on Sunday evening. Besides the
bounteous ronast served , the object for
which the entertainment was given de
serves particular mention. It was a
testimonial from William Dcorlng & Co. ,
the famous grain und grass cutting
machinery manufacturers of Chicago , to
their representatives In Nebraska for
good and faithful services during the
season of 1887. The dinner was given at
Robert Laws1 cafe in the board of trade
building , and among those who partlci- ,
pated wcro Dion Goraldmo , manager of
the company's business in this state , and
his office force and traveling men as fol
lows : D. B. Smith , J.V. . Kelly , J. A.
Burnett , George H. Cbeevor , 1) . P. Owen ,
Charles A. Foster. W. P. Gavin. D. C.
Callahan , J. H. Lindcrman ana A. R.
Brown. The party sat down at 8 o'clock
nnd it was nearly 11 when the festivities
were over. The entertainment will long
bo remembered , especially by Manager
Gcraldlne , who , besides tiie good feeling
manifested by the manufacturers and
the gentlemen of whom he has charge ,
was the recipient of a Holirt gold watch
and chain from those present.
The Doenng company did well to give
a social nnd practical manifestation of
its appreciation of Nebraska workers.
During the present year its business has
doubled In the stato. April 1 Mr. Geraldine -
dine shipped over 150 cars of the
company's wares to Nebraska. Five
solid trains , consisting of 125 cars , were
shipped as one consignment direct to
dealers throughout the stato. This is ac
knowledged to be the largest consign
ment of machinery over made at any
one time In any country , with perhaps
the exception of n shipment of American
machinery to Japan some years ago.
Hero is the notable difference , however :
In. the former cose the invoice came from
one establishment in the latter there
were the combined shipments of many
houses in the United States. This large
transfer of machinery excited great at
tention nt the time and Mr. Gor-
nhlino's boldness was the wonder
of the day. Many predicted
that Deering & Co. would lind their
machines a drug on the Nebraska market
The result was just the reverse. Wet
only was the entire consignment dis
posed of. but additional orders came in
so rapidly and numerously that the com
pany was unable to meet the demand.
Truly the year 1887 has been n great sea
son for the Deering company and its
representatives in this part of the west ,
and the dinner of Sunday meant much
more than a feast of reason and a How of
soul. " 4
Superintendent James KnthusUntlc
Over Tholr Prosperous Condition.
A BEE reporter had a brief interview
with Superintendent James , of the public
schools , yesterday morning. He is in
high state of spirits and says the schools
never wcro in such a wonderfully tine
condition as they arc just now. This conj
dition of things , too , ho says is especially
remarkable when it is taken into consid
eration that this fall has witnessed an
unprecedented Increase in attendance ,
that about fifty now teachers
have been employed , and other
changes have taken place , which
under ordinary circumstances would
at least temporarily interfere with
the prosperity and smooth running of
these institutions. The schools that have
opened have at lost been fully equipped
with furniture , etc. , and are running like
clock work. There are , however a num
ber of suburban schools that have not
yet opened. Among these are the Ban
croft , Forest Park. Amber Place. West
Side. West Omaha , Walnut Hill and
Orchard Hill schools. Buildings for
these are in course of construction ,
though , nnd will be pushed to
completion with all possible expedition ,
and the 1st of October , will find the en
tire system throughout the city in oper
ation. As nearly as the superintendent
could get at it there will bo , when all the
schools are in progress , an attendance of
7.800 pupils , or 2,300 moro than last year.
Una is un increase of 40 per cent , which
is also , taking statistics as a basis , about
the ratio of increase of the city's
population , furnishing indisputable
proof of the astonishing rapiditv
with which Omaha is assuming
the dimensions of one of the largest com
mercial cities in the country. The super
intendent says there are now about 180
teachers employed. Ho thinks they are
a superior lot , as they have boon selected
from hundreds of applicants after the
most careful personal investigation nnd
examination. The now board has taken
hold of things with the most praiseworthy
energy , and has already demonstrated
that it is fully capable to maintain a
Ntuudard in our public schools surpassed

brick on his new building at South
Omaha. It will bo 300 feet square , and it
is intended to have the structure com
pleted in thirty days. All the men that

size ever done in 'this ' country. As soon
as this building is completed the work of
excavation for the addition to bo erected
next spring will be commenced.
The big sewcr.now in course of con

There was a decided improvement in
the presentation of the "llag Baby"nt
the lioyd last night , though the warmth
of the evening prevented the attendance
of tlio audience which the piece usually
attracts. Mr. Itccd made a more satis

role of Old Sport , and the march of im
provements , sorno of which may bo at
tributed to sedulous rehearsals , yester
day , oven readied tlio tramps. Thcro
was a little moro music in their singinc ,
and with their contortions no fault could
bo found. Reod's' ipicnl song , "Tele

something origlnnf j"at the phono" was

Action has boon brought in thu United
States court ngain.st Albert W. Katon ,
Jolm P. Dutand , Edward Mi McUlllan
aud the Harlem UaUla company , for al
leged crookedness in securing two quar
ter sections of land near McCook , under
the homestead act. It seems that Durand
and Eaton arc in the employ of the Har
lem Cattle company , and it is claimed
that they perpetrated the fraud at the
bidding of McUillan , the leading member
of the company. Although they have
never resided upon or improved the
quarter sections in question , they made
affidavit that they had lived upon and
cultivated the same for live yours , and
thereby received titles which they turned
over to the Harlem Cattle company.
Suit is now brought to annul those , titles

of his left leg by a cross Newfoundland
dog belonging to William Dahlman , the
