Thin-cheitcd , holloiv-oycd defeat foil to
the lot of the Minneapolis team in the open
ing game of the championship season on the
1'ocnl grounds yesterday afternoon , Ilka a
thunder-storm upon an African camp-meet-
A victory was all that was necessary to
complete the grandest testimonial over paid
the national game In the Gate City. at
The crowd < n attendance , in both quantity
and quality , equalled that of any previous
week-day game over played upon the
Omaha was fairly beside herself with bnso
ball yesterday , and nothing was talked about
but tlio opening of the championship season.
The banker , doctor , lawyer and merchant
dropped business for the nonce to discuss
base lilts and batting avcragos. The cable
car conductors , the chop-house flunkies , the
boot-blacks , the newsboys , In fact , almost
everybody gnvo everything the go by to
speculate about Sclco's men's chances with
K the stocky Minneapolis team.
F Shortly after 1 o'clock both teams , m thin ,
natty , now uniforms , paraded the principal
thoroughfares in barouches * , headed by the
Musical Union band. The spectacle brought
out the pcoplo by hundreds , and as early as 2
o'clock there was an avalanche of enthusiasts
tiainmcriug at the park entrance for ad mis-
At it o'clock the grounds presented a very
cxhlllrating appearance. The blue sky ,
warm sunshine and starting grass made a
background to the scene that was pictur
esque indeed. The stands were crowded ,
ixnd the gay spring bonnets and rich cos
tumes of the hundreds of ladies present told
of Ti'hat a hold the glorious sport is getting
upon the gentler sex. On either side the
bleaching boards were llllcd with men and
boys , while a cordon of buggies and carriages
stretched all about the outllcld.
But the game ,
Omaha cnmo out on top with a vengeance ,
and , of course , everybody was happy.
Sundry representatives of the Minneapolis
team were also on hand , but somehow or
other they became lost in the shuttle. When
they were not engaged in chasing three-
baggers and other curious things over the
velvety outllcld , they were slicing the wina
into thin layers and expending their strength
in delirious and impossible stabs at tbo warp
and woof that Daddy Clarke was weaving
across the plato. When the gurno ended but
six of the Minnies had skated around the
diamond , while no loss than seventeen of the
snowy-hosed lads had performed this feat.
In some quarters it was reported
that Daddy had a rabbit's foot
In his insldo pocket. In others it
was said that his best girl sat in the grand
stand with her rosy little countenance
expanding with smites and Yucatan , and this
enabled Dud to wrap the sphere arouud the
necks of the Mlnncsotans.
At any rnto , when the battle ceased ,
there were but eight base hits to the credit
of Minneapolis , and its heaviest hitters
were alllictod with symptoms of parasls.
Joe Strauss was the first man at the bat ,
and as ho lined out a safe hit to loft the over
joyed populace arose and made the welkin
ting. Cleveland's bnso on balls sent .Too to
second , but a moment later ho was caucht by
Duedalo as ho was trying to make third : tbo
ex-president , however , took second sack on
the play. *
Right hero Captain Jack Crooks , ho of the
musical qhln , made his debut , and. , the first
ball cut loose by Mr. Morrison got it smash
In the nose , and as It moved down the peop-
ing-clovor , on its way out toward Daly , old
Buffalo scored. Again the people shouted.
On Coonoy's sacrilico Crooks went round
to third , and a moment later galloped < jniiuo
on Joe Walsh's slashing single.
Oh , my , how the glad hozannas did float oa
Naglo flow out to the dapper little gentle
man with inflammatory curls , who plays
short for Minneapolis , and for the time being
the } ig was up.
But there were two runs in , and everybody
thought it was so nice.
It was short work that was made
of the visitors. Turner struck out ,
but Daly got his base on four
bad balls. It looked as If ho would surely
score , for a wild pitch sent him to second
and a passed ball to third. However , ho an
chored hero. West being thrown out grandly
by Cleveland to Mcssltt and Hanratmn by
Walsh. The while logs gathered iu another
tally in the second.
Can a van smashed the ball to loft for a
couDlo of sacks , went to thira on Messltt's
out , and scored on n wild throw over Mil
ler's head by Pearso. Clarke was thrown
out from short to llrst and Strauss expired
on a long lly to Turner.
In their half , the Minneapolis lads cor
ralled their llrst run. After Miller had gene
out to Cooncy. Kcnglo hit safe , took second
on Pcarso's hit , and scored on a wild throw
by Nnglo. Dugdulo and Morrison were
In the third old Buffalo again took the in
itial bag on balls , and after Crooks had Doon
declared out on n foul strike. Coonoy urovo
him homo astride a corking two-packer.
Walsh then went out on a high fly to Turner
mid Naglo was tossed out nt flrst.
It was one , two , three for the visitors , In
such rapid order that it fairly took their
Iu the next inning Canavan hit a little
f ungo to the nltchor and was oxtinqulshcd ,
"but sturdy Jack Mcssltt sent the sphere
hissing out Into loft. Ho stele second by a
daring slide and scored on Poarso's second
Wild throw over Miller's head.
Again It was ono , two , three for our hy
Cleveland was given a lift In the fifth
by Miller's error , but was caught try
ing to purloin second. Crooks got his
base on halls , stole second , and scored on
Coonoy's second two-Backer , the llttlo middle
Colder trotting homo u moment after on
Naglo's hit. Canavan followed this up with
bis second safe drive , but no more runs re
. In their half , the Minnies distinguished
themselves , for after Poarso and Dugdalo
hud been disposed of , Morrison got his base
on balls and scored on Turner's magnificent
homo run hit to the extreme right Hold. Ho
was tumultuously cheered. Duly wont out
In the sixth Omaha piled up throe more
runs , Strauss , Crooks aud Coonoy scoring on
C B base on balls , a two bagger and a single.
For the Minnies , West made a three-baser
and scored on Miller's out.
The seventh was unproductive , but the
I eighth was a Waterloo for Mr. Morrison ,
and for about live minutes It was smack i
biff I bang ! In a way that must have mudo
tnoyoungtwirlor's luwd swim. After the
nmoke hud cleared away , no loss than seven
additional runs were to bo scon accredited
to the Omnhus , Every man wont to the bat ,
end Cleveland , Crooks and Gooncy twlco
each , and every man made a hit , save Walsh
and Clarke , and Cleveland got two , u tlno
homo run over loft Held fence and a single.
Crooks , too-madu a beautiful drive way out
against the right Hold fence for four sacks ,
and .lack Mcssltt did the same thing ,
For u moment pandemonium reigned , and
, the people got the worth of their money out
of this single Inning.
U was three straight outs for Morton's
gang in the seventh , but In the eighth and
ninth they scored a single tally each.
It was a great game , and no mistake. Tlio
homo team put up great bull , and as the
score fully tells the tale of the individual
work , no comment Is needed hero.

A Nl ht With Iho Wolves.
The wolf chase took place nt the Coliseum
last evening , there being In the neighbor
hood of a thousand ftpcotator * present , Pro *
ceding1 this there were several amateur
blbyclo races , and at 0 :80 : the first wolf wu
liberated on the track. Ho was not a very
enthusiastic wolf and wont off as If ho had
Just finished a hard day's plowing. The
hounds were promptly unleashed , but In
stead of leaping away eagerly after the
quarry , they began to look around for n soit
place to lie down. Manager Ingram , however -
over , infused ono big flop-oar with the coal
shovel , and ho ran up alongside Br'or Wolf ,
smelt , him once or twlco , then curled up and
lay down. The other dogs by this time had
boon stirred up , and all at once , in full cry ,
broka after the denizen of thicket and copse ,
and in a moment dogs , boys , wolf and the
manager were rolling around in the dust in
nn inextricable mass. They were finally
disentangled , however , and some moro
wolves and some moro dogs turned loose ,
and for a time the excitement was of thnt
order that lulls ono to Bleep. The big black
wolf ran up the stairs and went and sat
down by the base drummer In the band.
The big German who beats the gong gave
him n chow of tobacco , and the wild , wlord
scene cnmo to n close. The dogs were curled
up about the track in delightful slumber ,
whllo the wolves and llttlo boys were play
ing bide and seek among the orchestra chairs.
It was n thrilling night , and will long bo ro-
mombcrcd by every ono S3 fortunate as to bo

Edgar Rothory will make the flrst trial
flight with his cote of homing pigeons on
Wednesday next. The birds , Lady Patter

National hank at. Fremont at 13 in , The dis
tance , air line , is about forty-one miles , and
Mr. Rothery expects Lady Patterson , at
least , to roach her cote within twcnty-
llvo minutes after liberation.
A Cocking Mnlu.
A cocking-main of no llttlo magnitude took
place at a suburban resort just outsldo the
west city limits yesterday afternoon. Five
battles were fought , and with the exception
of ono nil were evenly and hotly contested.
In ono of the buttles ono of the contestants
took death in the pit , lighting gamely to the

Senator Payne , of Ohio , announces that bo
will hot bo a candidate tor ro-olcctlon , as ho
will bo eighty-two years old when his pres
ent term expires. This will make It Impossi
ble for Mr. Holstcad to lock horns with Son-
jiAtmisox's sotmtcnN POI.ICV.
A largo number of squthorn republicans ,
among thorn several well known colored
inon , called at the white house to-day and
congratulated President Harrison on his so
lution of the southern problem. They told
him that his policy of appointing whlto men
to flll ofllcos In whlto districts , and recogniz
ing the colored voters as far as possible
through the north , and these located In the
south by getting them positions In the execu
tive departments hero , was the only true so
lution there was of the race question , The
president intends to give the colored voter
n full measure of recognition In thu
distribution of offices , but it is
proposed to avoid friction in sections of the
south where there has boon trouble on ac
count of colored federal ofllccrs , by putting
white men Iu the places. In thu heavy black
districts of the south whore there are com
petent aud popular colored men who are in
dorsed for appointment , there will bo n recog
nition of the colored race. The president
will also refuse to recognize that transitory
clement in the south that has been holding
many of the ofllccs and which Is familiarly
known as the "carpet bagger. " The colored
men tlud no cause for complaint , whllo nil
classes of whlto men are loud In their pratso
of the now departure.
Major K. G. Uathbono , the newly appointed
chief Inspector of tlio postofllco department ,
Intends to make a complete reorganization of
the special agency division of the postal sor-
vico. Ho had In his room at the poslolllco de
partment this afternoon almost a wagon load
of applications for postofllco Inspectorships ,
nna was rapidly going through them with a
vlow to making recommendations for re
movals and appointments. "I came into this
work , " said ho to your correspondent , "with
out any prejudices , and in organizing the
special agency division I intend to secure the
very " best men I can got in tha country. It Is
to bo"regretted that the appropriations fen
employes In this sorviqo are not more
liberal so that the very best talent
can bo procured. The postmaster-general
has asked the president to rescind the order
which extends the civil service over this
branch of the postolllco department , so that
wo can employ rriojt with the solo object in
view of sceurinfT the peculiar ability wo
need. It is very unfortunate that nuy ono
over thought nbout'cxaminlng a man umlor
the civil service rules who wants to be a
special detoctlvo.j As a rule the special de
tectives are not ouucatdd mon , that is , they
are not up in the &spccial [ branches of learn
ing which would enable them to pass a civil
service examination. ! ' hope the president
will throw oft the hit jiyhlch holds down the
the special ngencySdivliiion of the postoftlco
department and pepfmltius to employ the best
men without examination. Major Hathbono
was chief of the specif } ) agents for the pen
sion onice under .Comaissloner Dudley , and
displayed such axcclljmt executive ability
that ho was souga out ; by Postmaster-Gen

YELLOW KlTVlEll TIIIIEATENED.
Dr. Hamiltgn , . , surgooiigonoral of the
marine hospital service , ( luhks there will be
another general yellow foyer scourge la
Florida this season , Ho says thcro are evi
dences of it already a't Jacksonville and
Tampa. Under the state laws of Florida It
is a crime for a physician to hide a case of
yellow fover. If the fever is reported by n
physician to the state authorities as some
other malady or disease , the physician so re
porting is liable to bo arrested and prose
cuted on a criminal indictment. Tills , Dr.
Hamilton says , is having the effect of induc
ing the physicians to refusp to report the
fever , and it is new developing in some sec
tions without nnv olllcial notillcation on the
part of the authorities. Under the present
condition of affairs it may prevail to u very
considerable extent in a section of the state
without there being any official record made

A private letter received here to-day gives
the details of a very peculiar wager on the
election , which was paid this week in the
village of East Aurora , N. Y. It seems
that a youm ; business man named Maters
had made several bets , when a IBuffulo
drummer named Hawortn came along and
wanted to back hii opinion that Cleveland
would bo re-elected. Mulors said that ho
had posted all the money ho cared to on the
result , but the drummer was persistent ana
Mniers II n ally said : "I will make you a
proposition. 1 will hot my trousers against
yours that General Harrison will
bo elected president , and further that he
will carry New York. It shall bo under
stood , however , that the loser Is to pay his
bet whenever and wherever ho may bo mot
by the winner after the election. "
'Done , " said the drummer , and thn bet
was recorded. Haworth , the drummer did
not make his appearance In the village until
this weolc. Ho wont there at night and did
not go near Malcrs' store , but. closed up his
business by noon the next day and was on
his way to the railroad station when Mulors
caught him. "Give mo my brooches , " was
all ho said. Haworth saw that ho would
Imvo to peel and lost no time In doing it.
The blinds of the neighboring windows were
hastily drawn and tha drummer hastily dis
robed. Ho was ten minutes walk away from
thu nearest clothing sloro , but it did not
take him moro than three minutes to reach
It and to gral > a pair of "hand-mo-downs. "
Ho missed his train , and m order to have
peace in the family , ho w.is compelled to setup

The County Commissioners Iliro
The board of county commissioners has , nt
last sat down on Architect Myers , of the
now county hospital. A new architect for the
building will bo appointed next Wednesday.
At yesterday afternoon's meeting of the
commissioners County Attorney Mahonoy's
opinion on Mr. Myers' contract with
the board was read. It was
quite lengthy. The contract with
Myers , said the county attorney , made
no provisions tor discharging the architect
of the hospital , but did provide in the event
of the plans and specifications being defec
tive or ambiguous , the' board of commis
sioners had the right to employ a
competent architect to supply the deliclency
and charge up the cost for such
to Myers. This the hoard could do if the
plans were In any respect defective. Whether
such defect existed was a matter to be de
termined by the board. Aside , however ,
from any express condition in the contract
with Myers , the board had the same right
which other employers have to discharge an
employe who crossly neulects the perlorm-
uncc of the duty which ho has undertaken.
After thu reading of the opinion Mr. An
derson moved that it bo accepted and placed
on Illo. To this Mr. O'ICeeffo agreed on the
condition that ho bo allowed to amend the
motion by having the board proceed at once
to appoint a now architect , his com
pensation for .services bo charced to
Mr. Myers. Mr. Anderson accepted the
amendment but wanted the appointment
positioned until Wednesday. To delay the
appointment , Mr. O'KcofTo thought , that the
architect would have a chance to got
hero , but as no ono cared if ho
did como , Wednesday was the day
for the selection of another architect.

The Admiral Writes of the Wreck nt
WASHINGTON , April 20. The morning's
mall delivered nt the navy department to-day
brought two letters from Admiral Klmborly
referring to the wrecking of the American
fleet at Apia. The llrst letter was dated
Apia , March 10. It mentions the assistance
rendered by the natives sent by Mataafa
Maltictoa to the American steamer in
saving public property and stores
from the wrecked vessels. The letter
states that the natives risked their lives to
save these of the American seamen. Two of
the natives lost their lives whllo rendering
this assistance , and Knnborly thinks dome
recognition of their services should bo made.
Under date of March 31 , Admiral
Klmberly writes that the Nlptlo was
got off the night before and Is
now nlloat without a rudder or rudder post.
Ho says that If ho can save the Nipsio ho
will send her under Iconvoy to Auckland to
bo docked aud repaired , Klmborly suggests
the sending of wrecking vessels to Samoa to
save the Trenton's ' heavy puns , ammunition ,
etc. Ho makes mention of the kindness of
Captain ICaul , of H. B. M. S. Calliope , and
hopes the department will not forgot him.

gives the details of the disaster ns related by
the Associated press corrcsiKJiidont in his
full report from Apia , although much less
fully. The following points of Interest are
taken from the admiral's report : Klmborlv
says indications of bad weather appeared dur
ing the forenoon of Friday , March 15 , and
at 1 o'clock ho commenced preparations to
meet the gale by sending down the lower
yards , housing topmasts , lighting the llres ,
and raising steam. Ho refers to the fact
that most of the water came Into the Mag-
ship through the hawse pipes , ns related in
the * Associated press reiwrt. The admiral
says that all efforts to prevent this failed ,
owing to the force of the waves driving out
everything used to stop them.
