to-day was played under circumstances to
Impel the players to do their best work. The
Spectators who came out to see a good gumo
Of haso hall without friend or favor , num
bered ten thousand. They were not disap-
Vpolnted. They expected to see the St. Louis
men muko'n closer light than they did , hut
M they witnessed the splendid Holding exhi
bition of the Strait City cluh and tlio wonder
ful pitching of their Gotzeln , they could only
admit that the victors were invincible this
flay and St. Louis must wait till some other
flay. To Gotzoln belongs the principal honor
Of the victory. Ills delivery was too much
for the ordinarily clever batters in the oppos
ing team. When it is considered thut of the
Whole nlno from St , Louis only two men
made clean hits and those in the last inning ,
Jt will bo soon that Gotzeln was out as a

Probably the last game of the season was
) layed yesterday on the old ball grounds , be-
Aveen the Omaha and St. George clubs. The
esult was a victory for the Omahos by 54
nms. For the victors the batting of Messrs.
Taylor , Roberts and .lopp was especially
worthy of notice , the latter gentleman initi
ating his perfoinmnco with n mnsnillcent hit
to les for 0. Mr. Taylor's contribution of 11
Wai the result of his usual euro. The defeat
of the St. Georges was mainly duo to their
lack of practice , as that , they have llnt class
iilayors among them cannot bo denied , of
which the bowling of Mr. Douglas and the
, batting of Mr. Robinson gives ample proof.
Had the weather been a llttlo loss boisterous
the scores on both sides would have been
larger. There is every evidence that next
year , if the club can procure aground , cricket
will prosper in Omaha.

RANDAMj AND CARLISLE.
An Absurd Story Which Causes Much
WASHINGTON , Oct. 15. [ Special Telegram
to the BEE. ] The report that if Sam. llan-
dall will oppose Carlisle in his contest with
Thoobe ho is assured that ho shall have the
chairmanship of the committee of appropria
tions is the subject of a great deal of amuse
ment among the friends of the Philadelphia
congressman. They assert that the story is
too absurd to warrant the slightest notice ,
and the only reason it is noticed at all is the
persistence with which his enemies reiterate
it. Mr. Randall's friends point out that in
the contest between Frank Hurd and
Joseph Romeis , in which the noted
free trader attempted to secure a seat
to which ho had not been elected ,
the democrats werounablo to unite in favor or
seating the democrat and they nrguo from
this that if an attempt is made to unseat
Carlisle thcro will bo enough republicans
who will not participate lu the movement to
insure Its defeat. They reason out therefore
that if Randall should attempt to defeat
Carlisle on the floor of the house it would bo
impossible , for him to carry enough demo
crats over with him to counteract the votes
which Carlisle would gain from the republi
can nido of the house. Further , they insist
that "Sam" will not plead the baby act but
if Carlisle attempts to displace him ho will
find some other means of evening the score
before the session closes.
Death to Birds.
WASHINGTON , Oct. 15. [ Special Telegram
to the BEE. ] Professor Ilidgway , the
curator of birds at the Smithsonian institute ,
says that the specimen , birds which were sent
to him from New York , where they were
found dead near the Baitholdl beacon light ,
are nearly all of the specie known as
"Warblers. " They nro insectivorous. These
birds are night migratory in their move
ments , and thousands have been attracted
from all directions by the brilliancy of the
light and killed by flying against the glass.
Ho says that the scientists fear
that the destruction will bo so
great that the species will become extinct
before many years. Ho also reports that
there have been found a great many crows
and wild ducks near the Washington menu
ment. They fly at dawn when the nests are
thickest and are killed by contact with the
monument , which is hidden in the cloud. Ho
