.15y the prnctlco of a little con. Rnmo the
Dmnlms ngnln provnlloil upon a lot of farm-
irs from Minneapolis to go out to the bull
{ rounds , yesterday afternoon , and play thorn
k game ol ball.
It would have boon bolter for the Mlnnlos
had they rumulnod nway.
For the whlto log * not only won the game
lulto handily , but gave the visitors an un
merciful thrashing.
Verily , Minneapolis' lot Is fur from happy.
There wore only about four thousand pco-
plo present when this hnppcncd , and oh mo I
weren't they glad I
It was bad enough for Morton's aggrega
tion to loose the game , but to bo lumped upon
Etna tramucd in through tlio sod was much
So It can not bo wondered at that Captain
Honglowan us Roro nsn boll last night.
Morrison , erratic Morrison , started m to do
the rotating for the Minneapolis' , but ho Is no
hog and knows when he's got enough. Ono
lnnlnH was about his slzo yesterday. Then
Turner went Into the box , and thu Minnie's
luck changed nnd got worro. Long , lank ,
cadaverous Mr. Jantxcn did the catching.
Willis and Naglo wcrn In the points for
Omaha nnd their labors were superb.
The llrst Inning opened up In an enthusi
astic manner , and the multitude was fairly
tickled to death.
The French count from Amsterdam , known
as Hcrr Strauss , by u little judicious waiting ,
was presented with his base by Mr. Morrl-
Bon. Tlion the ox-prcslilent smashed the ball
out Into the loft garden for a single , the
count/oachmg third. Jack Crooks wan In
an cmulntory mood and so ho Just smacked
her for a bag himself , sending Strauss across
the plato and UufTalo to third. Crooks stole
second , skating In to the bag on his shirt
front , Morrison wus mad , and ho 11 red nway
at Coouoy at random , catching htm In the
calf of the leg. Of course ho went to first ,
and the bags were all occupied. Sir Joseph
Walsh now stepped ut ) to tlio lubber , and as
the slanting sunshine glinted among his
warm tresses , ho looked like the statue of
Stern Hcsolve.
Morrison secured the ball In his sinuous
fingers , bent his body nnd let her go. It
cunio like n rlllo ball and would probably
have gene clear through the grand stand hud
not it been for ono thing
That was Walsh's "club.
The sphere collided with it with a sound
not unlike that mndo by blowing up a pcuuut
sack nnd sitting down on it with great sud
denness. If went hissing out into Mlnno-
han's territory , and both Cleveland and
Crooks ran homo , while little Cootioy scam
pered clear round to third. Walsh Immedi
ately dashed awny for second , and In his
eagerness to nip the young man In the full
Hush of his amhltlaa Minneapolis' elongated
backstop threw the ball way over Honglo's
head , and the tropical-haired boy waltzed on
to third while Cuonoy crooscd the pluto.
The yells of the excited audience wcro
long , loud nnd aggravating.
It was such pretty slcht to sco the
Onnihus gallivanting around the bases.
The next moment Walsh nudcd his tally to
the total score on a wild pitch by Morrison ,
which wus also a missed thitd strike , Nuglo
being at the bat.
It wus tough on Morton's crowd , but the
audience howled with Uondlsh delight all the
Caiiavan , Messltt and Willis went out
and the fun lulled for a few moments.
MIckey Morrison had an olognnt suf
ficiency , and ho changed places with Tur
ner , In middle field. The people sympu-
'tuizcd with him , but they were too happy to
dbsorvo a'rcspcctftil sllonco.
Willis signalled his hppearanco by strik
ing out the two lirst Minnies at the bat In u
llffy. No ono knows what njiffy is , but that
is what a sweet-faced girl said , who sat
right behind the scorer's box , ull through the
Turner and Daly wont back to the bench
in disgust , while tiie people cried , "oh 1 oh 1
That was prottv work.
"Cigar Sign" West took first on four bau
Thut wasn't quite so pretty.
-Ucddy Hnnrnhan , however , flow out to
Crooks , nnd so no harm was done.
In the second the Parisian secured first on
a wild throw by Tumor , who luut taken
Mlko's plnco in the box. Ho wont to second
on Cleveland's second safe hit , stole third ,
and then actually stolu homo.
The wnv the audience greeted this exploit
made the Minncsotans sick.
Old Buffalo timblod clear round to third on
Crooks' out from Turner to West , and
scored on Coonny'o drive to right. The latter -
tor got to second on n passed ball , third on
Walsh's lilt , but wus onught nt the plato as
ho endeavored to score on Walsh's steal of
second. Heuclo made n great throw , and
was deservedly applauded. Naglo struck
But seven runs In the llrst two innings was
In their half , the visitors got the first of
their two runs. Coouoy made an inexcus
able muff of Farmer Miller's long high Hv ,
nnd Honglo sent him homo on a lucky two-
Turner was sei/ed with a generous streak
Jn the third , nnd ho mndo botli Canavan and
Mossitt n present of Urst on eight wretchedly
bud balls.
They stele second In conccrtaifd a moment
later Willis drove them both homo by u rat-
tlinc drive to loft.
Right hero the trenchant air was again sot
8-nulvor with chin music.
Strauss went out nt first , but President
Cleveland reached first on Daly's muff of his
fly , but Crooks nhd Willis were doubled up ,
nnd the Omuhus had to bo content with u
pair of tallies.
The Minnies were Chlcagocd , Turner and
west striking out , and ilanrahan dying nt
llrst. Daly , howuver. hud reached Urst on
Hut why continue this monotonous storvi.
Won't it sufllcn to know that the White Legs ,
on two hits , two errors nnd n b.iso on bafis ,
scored three time * more m the fourth ; once
In tbo fifth on n hit and a couple of sacri
fices , nnd live times In the sixth , on Mes-
silt's throo-basjgor , Willis , single , Cleve
land's base by being hit , Crooks' three-
bagger nnd Cooney's base on balls ; once in
* the seventh on u couple of singles and a
couple of steals , nnd onca In Ihu ninth on
Canavan's magnificent crack over the left
Held fence for u homo run.
The Minnies wore blanked with dreary
monotony up to the eighth , when on on
error , a lovely two-sackor and a single they
managed to squeeze la ono more attenuated
little run.

Ittaljlnod With Domollahocl Struc
tures of Early Omaha.
Where the llcoVtis Born , nnd Where
tlio youths or Mnny Ycara Ago
Assembled to Develop
An Early Sanctuary.
The orootton of the proposed Com
mercial National bank on the corner of
Sixteenth nnd Fiirnmn struqta has resulted -
sultod in the demolition of the old
Rcdlck rookery ami the "first Congre
gational church orcotod In this city.
The last brick of the latter has hardly
boon rotnovod from its place , but the
little structure , with all its associations ,
will now Hvo but in the memories of
these who love the past. Yesterday ,
there stood upon the curb an
ugod lady , clad in mourning robes.
Despite tlio clouds of dust from the
disintegrated mortar and the danger
from passing teams , she watched the
work of demolition with an interest
which was displayed in every feature.
Oncn , when n section of the wall fell
with u dull sound upon the debris , the
lady's eyes flashed as if she considered
the destruction an act of vandalism.
She was alone in the world. It was that
little church in which , as n girl , she
had llrst worshipped in Omaha. It was
in that little sanctuary that she had
llrst scon the gentleman to whom
she was afterwards married.
It was within these walls the matrimo
nial alliance was consummated.through
the agency of u minister who has since
been called beyond the tomb. There
were her children baotizoa , and there ,
too , bereaved and hoart-brokon , she
llrst appeared in widow's weeds. Burn
ing tears arose in the old lady's eyesas ,
with tottering stops she loft the affect
ing scene. But she had viewed for the
last time the little house of prayer
which was so intimately connected with
everything she hold dear in life.
The church was organized by the Rov.
Reuben Gaylord , widow and son
survive him in this city. lie was a na
tive of Nor/oik , Conn. , and u graduate
of Ynlo college. Ho arrived hero in
September , 18-55 , and on the following
Christmas day was joined by his wife
and daughter. Ho commenced to preach
in the council chamber of the old terri
torial house on the last of December.
His services wore hold in the afternoon
and his salary was $ GM ( ) per year. On
the 4th of May of the following year
Mr. Gaylord organized the First Con
gregational society , the membership
consistingof butninopooplecomprising ,
as the reverend gentleman mentions in
some of his recollections , nine people ,
namely , Mr. and Mrs. O. D. Richard
son , Mr. and Mrs. B. H. Chapman ,
James W. Seymour , a Mrs. Alien and
the clergyman himself with his wifoand
daughter. The year 1830 arrived before -
fore stops wore taken to erect a church
when T. G. Goodspood , E. Estabrook ,
still in Omaha , and Lorin Miller , de
ceased , wore appointed as a committee
on construction. In those days the
population of the city did not exceed
oOO. The site of the church had boon
donated by the ferry company. In his
notes , Mr. Gaylord says that the work
of mnkinjr contracts and getting ma
terial devolved upon him and
that it was no easy task. "Tho saw
mill on the bank of the river , owned by
Mr. Salisbury , was continually besieged ,
and to got the timber as fast as it was
needed , it was necessary to have a team
ready to haul it away as fast as it was
cut. The work .was done during
illness in the clergyman's , except
when his family physician , Dr. Miller
volunteered to aid bun.
While the church was in course of
erection1 , services wore at intervals hold
in the dining room of the Douglas
house , on Harney street , near Thir
teenth. On the 20th of October , 1850 ,
the structure had boon so far comoloted
that the congregation was enabled to
hold services in the basement. A Sun
day school was organized , under the
direction of Mr. KoTlom , and the mem
bership of the association was increased
by six worshippers. The building was
completed in 1857 , the carpenter work
being done by James E. Boyd and his
brother John Boyd , the former of whom
is too woll-known in this city to be
further referred to. The painting was
done by Mr. Robb and the trimming
by Mr. McAusland. Completed , the
building was but a little coun
try church , with its sugar-loaf
spire resting upon a white square base ,
such us may even now bo found in ten
thousaurt cities and hamlets in the land.
The dedicatory exorcises did not take
place until the Oth of August , 1857 ,
when there was gathered a very largo
audience to do honor to the occasion.
In 185S and 1800 the church oujoyod
successful revivals , the lust continuing
for several weeks.
Rov. Mr. Ciiiylord continued as pas
tor until 1804 , when be retired to ac
cept the agency in this state of the
America Homo Missionary association ,
leaving the church with ninety-six
members. The cost of the church was
81,600 , and was supplied by the proceeds
of a fair , the llrst of the kind held in
Nebraska. It took plaeo in the St.
Charlod hotel , then on Harnoy street
between Thirteenth and Twelfth
streets. After many years of success
ful labor , Rov. Mr. Gaylord died in
Omaha , January 10,1880 , leaving the im
press of his character upon .tho minds
of many people now in this city who
still fondly cherish recollections of the
saintly divine ,
In this connection many of these
curly wornhlppors will bo pleased to
tcnow that , about the end of Juno , the
widow and uou of Rev , Mr. Gaylord
will publish a history of that gontle-
IDIUI'H ' lifo , which will necessarily bo
largely a history of Omaha during the
period between 1855 and 1880.
A brict p-irugraph in these columns ,
bnvoral days ago , told of the demolition
of the house in which Tins DICK was
born. The structure was of frame , was
old and dry and although it wont down
in the millet of u rain storm , the clouds
of dust which filled the air rpmindod
ono of the breezy days not lonif ago ,
when a y.ophyr could and did fill in the
atmosphere witn dust so thick as to
inulce it almost unboarablo-
The house in question stood on "tho
southeast corner of Dodge and Twnlfth
streets , and was long known as the Rod-
liohl house. Like many another ancient
btructuro , it had a history which it }
aptly told in a little Bomi-occasiunul
Bliuat published last January by M. U.
Rodliold. It had not pretensions. It
was a plain frame bujldlng , of two
storieswith rough sides and windows on
every dido. Thousands of people in all
the years it has stood the attacks of tlo )
elements liuvo passed little thinking of
the part it has played in the enlighten
ment of the people of this section of the
country. On iiiU subject , the gentle
man referred to , writes :
"There clusters around the Redliold
printing house , from which this jiupur
emanates , nnough of newspaper hUiory

days , and on such occasions tlio Herald

nnd friendships were formed that will

our history must begin : "
Mr. Rodtlold then tells about the es
tablishment of the Agriculturist by
Jeremiah Bohm , January 1 , 180 ! ) ; the
Dally Argus , October , 1870 , by Charles
E. Redfiold , and then refers to TUB
BKI : as follows :
"Ono of tha proudest offshoots of the
Redliold printing house is Tun OMAHA
Bun , the first charge fop which appears
under date of .lune 19,1871. Mr. Ed
ward Rosewater wca at that time super
intendent of the only telegraph com
pany in this city. Ho was possessed of
several pieces of property , including
that in which Tun UUK is now printed ,
nnd ono of the lots on which iscon
structed the now Bun building , whore
Mr. Rosewater resided in a small cot
tage. The first issue of the paper was
tv quarter sheet 21x 0 , only ono
side printed , and wa < distrib
uted free. Mr. Frank Kasuar.
present councilman of the Second
ward , was ono of the carriers. Mr.
Rosewater had an idea of establishing
a permanent paper , but still the llrst
issues were published as experiments.
The following entries from the order
book of that time show what THIS BKK

the 17th of July , the same year , when
Mr. Rosewater rented u room in the

MINNEAPOLIS , April 31. The first serious
disturbance which pccurrod in Minneapolis
since tlio general tie-up or car lines , a weolc

moned , and they were stoned , Some persons
received severe hurts , but were hustled out ,
of the way by friends. The police wore
called from all other hues of the city , nnd
the mob was dually dispersed. Owing to
the withdrawal of all ollieers from other
lines , all street cars in the city were btoppcd.

AVIiloh Speak Volumes Kor
the Onto City How Chicago Has
Been Distuned ! In Percentage
of Increase.
Cm in ti For tha Croakers.
OMAHA , Nob. , April 10 , 1889. To
the Editor of Tun BUB : Since your
publication of my estimates of our present -
ont population nt 121,485 , parties have
asked if I wasn't too high. It is un
necessary to say these were residents of
Omaha. It is a fashionable vice with
some Omaha men to disparage their
own city. It makes other men regard
them ns oracles , especially eastern men
who come hero to locate or invest. Be
sides , their oracular utterances glvo
Omaha a good reputation abroad.
Something like this from a Chicago
capitalist : "It is impossible to got
money in Chicago to invest in Omaha. "
"Havo soon a dozou capitalists in Chi
cago. Not ono will Invest in Omaha. "
Of course this is a repetition of the old
contest between Now York an Chicago ,
when the latter was no larger than
Omaha is now. Chicago wont around
Now York and got till the capital she
wanted in Now England nnd elsewhere.
It is a hopeful Sign for Omaha. Bat if
the work of these croakers is pleasing
to the average citizen of Omaha , wo
have a good deal more complacency
than wo want. Bettor ship eomo of it
to any place that needs It. There is a ,
'silver lining to the cloud. " If Chicago
cage refuses to invest her capital hero ,
others will not nbido by her example.
Ono eastern capitalist visiting Omaha ,
witnessing our splendid growth and
steady advance in wealth and popula
tion , writes mo thus :
"Hurrah for Omaha ! "
"It IB to have 350,000 people in 1000. "
The wonder is how this gentleman
ovor'gotout of Omaha allvo , .If ho ut
tered those sentiments ouunly without
consent of the croaking guardians ( ? )
of the city. Perhaps they thought him
insane and harmless. They might have
boon asleep. Ho is , however , regarded
as a very shrewd business man by his
acquaintances. At any rate it was a
dangerous experiment.
In the meanwhile our real estate men
are wondering why eastern capitalists
do not jump over each other to buy
Omaha property. Of course they will
come in to buy and build when told by
the so-called best citizens to keep out ,
especially when these citi/.ons are re
garded by their fellow-citizens as oracles
cles and apostles. If the real estate and
business men of Omaha like this , and
they appear to , by the deference shown
these croakers , they are not to bo en
vied ,
"Contentment with godliness is grout gain. "
But to the purpose of this communica
tion. Thinking I might have boon in
error I looked into the matter , and
found the estimate of the presidential
vote also gave the city an average of
120,000 pooulo , hence that based on the
school census is conservative.
In 1800 Chicago had about 100,000
people. This was all in ono solid city.
Count Council Bluffs , Omaha , South
Omaha and Albright as one city and wo
have something like this , in round
numbers : .
Council Bluffs 40.000
'Omaha ' 120,000
South Omaha : 12,000
Albright ? , OJO
This is 74,000 greater than the popu
lation of Chicago in 1800.
Looking over the United States cen
sus of 1880 , and other authorities , the
population of &evoral cities will range
thus :
ISfX ) 1S70 1SSO 1SSO
Chicago 100,000 293,977 503,183 850,000
Omaha llOSa , 30,518 121.158
Couacll bluffs 10,020 18,003 4JOUO
South Omaha ia , ( > CO
Albright 2,0iO- (
As I sot tho. percentage of increase in
Omaha lor the next eleven years at 200
per cent , it will bo soon that of Chicago
for ton years ( from 1800 to 1870) ) , was
nearly 109 per cent , or 219 per cent for
plovon years. At the Chicago rate of
increase for the ten years in question ,
the four cities below would run go as
follows by A. D. , 1900 , viz :
Council Blurts , 120,000
Omaha ( one solid ) . .802,000
South Omaha..i city by V. . iid.OOO
Albright { that time j . . 0.000
Total 521,000
This is 20,000 greater than the popu
lation of Chicago in 1880.
With the exception of Lake Michi
gan , which wus of little or no use until
tbo completion of the railroads , 'tho
natural resources of Omaha are greater
than those of Chlc.vgo.
north of Kansas City , or east of San
Francisco , with 2,000 miles of tributary
country scarcely touched , and abound
ing in minerals , the precious nictale ,
chemicals , coal , petroleum , agriculture ,
and live stool : on the vast ranges and
farms , with railroads radiating in every
direction by that time , I can see no
good reason why the population of
Omaha should not incroabo as rapidly
by 1000 as that of Chicago between 1805
and 1870 , when that great city got its
wonderful start.
To uhow that Omaha is now increas
ing more rapidly , in proportion , than
Chicago was then , hero are the percen
tages of Incroabo for the two cities.
1'er Ot.
Chicago , from 1SCO to 1870 10U
Omaha , from 18SU to 1600 ! )3l )
For the following the percentage of
increase will raugo about as follow ? :
Chicago , from 18SO to 1690 70
Council liluffa , : < rom I860 to 1800 145
Omaha , from 16SO to Ib'.K ) 3:11 :
With South Omaha nnij Albright
united to Omaha , by 1890 , our percentage
of increase in the tun youn * now dosing ,
will bo HB1 nor cent.
This is what has happened , with the
exception of ono year to cotno. It is an
accomplished fact to all intent and
purposes. Still there are men hero ,
ulironiu croakers , who are cherished us
valued , honored and respected citizens.
With her prodigious growth since 1880 ,
such has been the rapid increase of the
state , Omaha has boon physically un
able to maintain her quota of one-tenth
of the population of Nebraska. Kvory
energy has been taxed to the utmost.
Millions upon millions have boon in
vested , and the gigantic work is still
progroBfaing. 15. V. TJCST.
