CAUSES OF THEIR DEFEATS ,
Why the Omaha Ball Toatn Eudocl
In Fourth Plaoo.
BICKERINGS AMONG THE MEN.
Ami a Pnlr Khi\ro ofThclr Failure At-
trlliutahlo to Iloosc The Club
Will DUImiul Tor the Season
Why Omaha Flnlihcd Fourth.
Thu Omaha b.iso ball team will disband at
Milwaukee to-morrow , and the players go
thi'ir several wajs. They wcro paid off in
full by President McCormick last wceit , and
the parting between the management nnd
the players was of the most friendly disposi
tion liuch ono attested to his satisfaction
as to his Omaha experience , nnd expressed
the wish to return hero when the robins nest
again. The ono regret pervading the team
was that they wore unable to quit the season
in n hotter position than fourth place Vain
regret ' Whoso fault was it that this was the
caso' Now that the season , with 1U
trials and triumph * , Its victories nnd defeats ,
its \c\ations , perplexities and disappoint-
IMiiutmeiiUs Is over , it can hurt no one , but
may do a good deal of good , to enter into a
brmf nnuljsw of the cause of the Omaha
team's comparatively poor showing As far
as the team Is concerned , It was made of
strong material Individually , and it was con
fidently expected would prove so collect
ively , considering the harmony that exited
within the ranks of the victorious Oshkosh
team of the year before , and which was the
same team almost wholly , only being ro-
christened. What changes there were
were only for the best sttougcr , bet
ter , moro skillful men , and yet
nothing panned out as expected.
Omaha hail l-'runk Seleo , the old Oskosh
mnnngpr , too , n man reiwrted to bo well up
in the managerial science an old player ,
thoroughly versed In the game , down to the
ninutcst technicality , and with a long stand-
ng acquaintance with the bust of the profes-
ion In the land. During trying circum
tances , amidst Hi ing breakers and lowing
, ho piloted Oskosh to victory , us ho
lad several clubs befoie , nnd yet he comes to
Dinalia with a much more powerful coiublna-
ion than ho was over at the head of before ,
nil makes but u trillo better showing than
lie chcnnest , poorest teams in the associa-
ion. Why was this , interrogatory is ro
tated. Was it the team , or was it the man
Tno answer is easily vouchsafed. It was
ho team in the main. Whoa they lirst came
lore they gave promise of great things :
hey were well selected , well captained and
ilmlrably managed ; thcyweie confident of
uccens , and determined mid aggressive if
njone dared suppose defeat at the hands of
veu tlio champion Ucs Moines , or the
i\postles or the Cowboys. They weio bull
ilayers , every ono of them , and Omaha was
iroud of them nnd lionized them to an extent
hat proved their demoralization nnd ruin.
iVith the first stroke of ill-success dissension
jcgan to crop out among the players ; Jeul-
uisy merged into enmity and half the tlmo
miny of the players wcro not on
.peaking . terms with each other. There wcro
llciues and clans , and each worked to the
other's dcrrogation. The old Oshkosh ele
ment was especially tabooed by new players
'omlng ' into the team , and the old Oshkosh
lument was responsible for the bulk of the
levilment Internal disintegration soon set
u , and by the middle of the summer the
cam was in anarchy. They did as they
jileasod , defying both management , manager
mid the neoplo. Some of the best , highest
inced and most valuable players black
guarded the directory and the town when
imd where und before whom they saw
iroper. They drank aud caroused , as
.ho whole city know , during the
: nest critical htagea in the champion
ship season , and is it any wonder that they
ilid not or could not play winning ball ) Of
ourso there were exceptions in all the rot-
.cn work ; there was a number of as consci
entious , reliable nnd honorable players in the
Omaha team as in any team in the country ,
but they were decidedly in the minority.
Of course naturally enough Manager Solco
ivas blamed , but ho did all within his power
without disrupting the team completely , and
the public has never been aware of the heavy
lues ho assessed upon these intractable und
recalcitrant players. The trouble did
not sot in until the season
was at its height , and Manager
Solcc was put to his wits ends to get any
kind of work out of his men , nnd under the
peculiar existing clrcumstancss ho did well.
After ono looks over the matter analytically
it doesn't scoui such n wonder after all that
Omaha did not come anywhere near warning
the pennant for ISsO.
The Chicago Mcctlntc.
Manager Selco will bo in Chicago and rep
resent the Omaha ball club In the meeting of
the Western association to bo held at the
Palmer house to-morrow nt 'J o'clock. Why
the cities of this association should go chas
ing about Chicago in the arrangements of
her affairs for another season is something
hard to understand. Chicago will not bo in
the Western association next year under any
circumstances , and it seems that there ought
to bo baseball brains and gumption enouuh
In St. Paul , Ouiuhu , les Moines and the
other western pities thai will comprise the
circuit another season , to manage their own
affairs , without consulting foreign wiseacres
who can only have personal cuds In view.
The Monkey Wort Cantlrnies.
Tlioro is no necessity of reducing the uuin-
her of called bulls to four. It could not DOS
slbly tinvo any Influence upon the batting , bul
Instead make all games redundant with thai
disagreeable feature of bases on balls. Every
body seems busy cudgeling their brains tt
propose some meritorius change in the rules.
As yet no one has met with startling success ,
The change In the distance between pitchci
and batsman is the most feasible and tliomosl
practical change yet suggested , if any change
is to bo made at all. Again THE HKK advise ;
that the present splendid code of rules bi
left Horiously alono.

ing. Hollldav , Stearin , Alvord , Van Dyke
and Manager Morton , who played short , wore
the ttlayers who thus disgraced themselves.
Shafcr , Phclati nnd Traflley were sober ,
although the latter gentleman's playing was
rather groggy. A fc.ituro of the game , which
the homo team won by a score of 11 to 4 , was
the work of Karlo behind the bat , ho taking

The bets of $30 to $30 that Harrison will be
elected , nnd that Now York will go republi
can uro still posted on the board at the Turf
nud Field pool room , with no takers. The
alleged calling of the bluff by Jeff McGoath
nnd a friend , is one of the ludicrous breaks
of the campaign. Who over heard of n
gambler entering n pool room and o tiering to
take the management's proposition , provided
he put the stakes up with soma reliable bank.
Pool rooms , the country over , make
their bets to win , and make their
propositions partially for the advertising
there is in them. If the bets uro taken the
room holds the stake , and win or lose deduct ?
their legitimate per cent. Jeff McGcath , Jim
Crawford or no one clso is compelled to take
any of these bets , but If they do their money
will bo deposited in the pool room. Stop up ,
gentlemen , the bets are still open to you.

An Accident That Notioily Knows
A serious and possibly fatal accident oc
curred nt the IJurllngton depot yesterday af
ternoon , mid the profit ami Idss account of
the company has to bo charged , with two
men injured , ono onglno disabled , ono coach
damaged ami ono express oftlco demolished.
About 4110 switch engine 100 was backing up
bnKKago car , the pay car , and the private car
of General Manager Holdrodgo , and placing
thorn on n sldo track that ended close against
the express oftlco of Wells , Fargo ft , Co.
When about Eighth street , there was n break
in the machinery , n rush of steam , and an en-
glnoor and Urcmati Jumping from the cab ,
whllo the train loft to Itself reached the cad
of the track and ornahud Into the express of-
flco burying Charlie Speiuor , day chock
clerk , George Taft , depot , agent , and C.
A. Goldsmith. bill clerk , In
the ruins. The entire end of
the oftlco was crushed in , the heavy iron snfo
tossed to one sldo with the door wrenched
from the hinges , and the flooring and parti
tlons ground Into match wood. Spjncer was
found beneath the ear with n broken leg and
a badly crushed chest. Taft was suffering
from Internal injuries , and Goldsmith had n
miraculous osenpo from death , being
knocked down by the car and thrown almost
Inquiry among the Burlington officials led
to the fact that not one of them know the
name of the engineer or fireman , that not one
of them know how long ho had been em
ployed by the company , not one of them
knew positively whether ho was competent
or not , not one of them knew that an oftlci.il
report had boon sent In , or that tlioro was
anything in It for publication , but all of them
knew It was an accident In which no blame
could bo attached to anyone. Ono version
of the affair was that the "boiler head plug"
had blown out and the cscnpidg steam had
forced the engineer mid fireman from the cab.
Another was that the "quadrant stud" had
blown out with the same effect , and n third
was that the water glass had burst. Enquiry
on the side showed that the engineer was
named Charlie Sewer , ntul that ho was but
little moro than a month in theservice. Some
b.\slanders who claimed to have seen the
whole atlalr say that when the steam filled
the cab ho lost his head , and instead of re
versing the engine , as he attempted to do , ho
pulled her wide open on the back motion and
sent the train with increased speed Into the
express odlce. They also state that- even If
the "plug , " "stud , " or "water glass" had
blown out , there was no necessity for him to
leave the cab , as there was no chnnco for him
to bo scalded , and accidents of tliu kind are
of common occurrence aud easily overcome.
