Siimx City at Omaha 1.
Toll the boll softly , the White Sox have
taken another tumble.
The Sioux warriors had on their war patnl
ycstorday afternoon , and it took thorn but
ono hour and fifteen mlnutos to flagellate the
It was a remarkably short game ono 01
the shortest on record.
' And It was an interesting camo' , too , replete
ploto with the beauties nnd the blemishes
and the glories and gaubherlcs of the groa !
national sport , and the audience couldn'
help but enjoy themselves after a fashion
But don't repeat it too much of this sorl
of enjoyment is apt to grow irksome.
Crooks and Monk Cllno nddod to thi
affray , moreover , a comedy element whlcl
spiced the entertainment until It was fit fo :
the delectation of the Gods.
But bloux City won , and that's wha
Still , it is gratifying to be able to say that
they didn't win cosily. Tno Corn Huskon
stocked up a mighty stout game , and a luck ;
ono , whllo Omaha's was a trifle ragged , am
they couldn't bat worth a picayune.
They hi ! the ball , though , mind you , as :
rule , but somehow or ether it alwa ys wen
straight to ono of the aboriginal g alaxy ,
Nichols and Webber both pitched In ad
ml ruble form , the latter getting , in a smal
way , the best of it.
The nudicnco was very largo and vorj
quiet. The grand stand wus packed and thi
bleachers a solid mass of faces , while innu
merable carriages and buggies cucompassec
the field.
But lot us see how It all happened. Horo'i
the sad tale :
Omaha bats first.
The French count thinks ho sees one com
! ng that suits him. But ho Is mistaken
The sphere rolls timidly down to nimble Mr
Buruc , aod'ho slams Joe outat first.
The president swung his sapling , the ball
flow , but only to Bradley , who likewise fired
It into first , and Graver wont off to condole
With Strauss.
Crooks then laces out a safe ono to loft ,
and the crowd had half a notion to whoor
her up. But they had hardly time , for Web
ber made a fine stop of Andrews' slashing
drive , and again blonde Mr. Powell received
the bull and the side went out.
Thu authropomorflcCllno makes his debut ,
He spits on his hands , bends bade until he
almost alts on the ground , then bang 1 He
scores a pretty single out toward Cunuvan.
Glenn braces himself , nut "ouch ! " ho gets
n roust in the riha. Then ho trots to first
and the chimpanzee runs down to second.
A sulphurous smell pervades the air , but
soon everything is lovely again.
Powell drives a vicious grounder to An
drcws nnd goes to the bonch. Nichol throws
Genius out at first , and Cleveland does ai
jnuch for Brosnun , leaving Cllno on third
nnd Glenn on second.
Thut wus nice , wnsn't it !
In the second , Coonoy , Walsh and Cana-
van wore extinguished BO quickly that you
could hurdlv see how it was done.
And the Corn Huskers , too , wore done up
with equal acceleration.
The oleaginous Naglo corks out a clover-
nipper as a way of an introduction In the
third , but Nichols immediately forces him
out , and Strauss , by a fuugo to Burke , suc
ceeds lu doubling himself up with the Kid ,
nnd agalnaho White Sox are la the Mulliga
) The Indians do better , for after Webboi
Strikes out , Cline , by tremendous sprinting ,
roaches bag No. 2 on Cunuvnn's mUJudg-
snout und muff of his long high fly. Glenn ,
the falr-hairrd ex-beau outer , drives hhr
lumoon a neat single. Walsh throws the
next two men out ana tlio score stands Siouj
X Omaha 0.
> Again It was ono , two , three for Solco'a
, bets in the fourth , and uguin the Sious
braves got another scalp.
After Brosuun und Burke hud been rotlret
nt first , Bradley , 'ho of the perennial grin
made u hit. Nuglo's wild throw lots him tc
third , und the Kid's ' wide pitch , across the
rubber ,
Thut was bad 1
In the uoxt innlnir Umalm made her one
little lily-bird of u tally.
Coonoy smashes out a two-sucker , and the
pleaching boards fill the summer air will
This is suddenly hushed , however , as
\Valsh retires on u high fly to thu Monkey ,
{ ( .lion Cannvun , us if to gut even for his la
Uicnlublo muff , lines out a single , and Timing
comes trotting homo. Caiiuvan makes u
proat steal of second , but Is loft , Nnglo dyinjj
at first and Nichol on a sky-scraper to Glenn ,
Young Burku , who is one of the fines !
pliort-stoiw lu the business , varies his fine
work In the ninth by muffing the count' !
pop-up. But the mistake counts nothing
uftcr nil , for on Cleveland's hit the twc
funnors uro doubled up like a jack-knife.
Urodloy threw Crooks out , and the goldoc
Opportunity was lost.
The Corn Hunkers are speedily dls
posed of.
In the seventh not a Binglo pair of white
Jogs saw first. Andrews und Coonoy wore
Retired on long , beautiful horao files tc
Olenn , nnd Burke threw Wulsh out at first
The brawny warriors from up the rivoi
pooro again , nnd everybody saw that the pit
Vras up , awfully up.
Anclunt Mr. Bradley open up with hli
Bccond hit , and roaches second on Crotly'i
uttemptvd bunt. Webber lambastes tin
irenilo zyphcrs for the second time , and 1
looked us if Irial ) would got loft.
But sad to relate , ho didn't
Loose jointed Ciluo happens along with hli
pccond sufo drive , and the old-tituu dead urn
pitcher crosses the pl.ito.
Monk Purloins bccond , but Glenn's oul
ends the innlug.
The Whllo Sox do nothing In tbo eighth
pud the Indians do the sumo. Powell , nftoi
yetting to first on Crook's fumble , unc
LJcnlna are doubled up by a flno Hop of tin
Ivld' , and his throw to Walsh und Wulsh'i
to Andrews. Wulsh also throw Hrosnan ou
fet first.
Thu Omahas came In for their lost , with t
vlld. ravenous look In tholr nyes , but thai
didn't amount to shucks. Wild , ' ruvououi
look * arc not a very potent factor In pillnj
up runt In a game of base ball.
Strauss llow out to Burke and old Buffali
to Gonlus , und the audience begun to uiovi
dejectedly toward the exit. But \ \ hen Web
lior , Just to prolong their suspense a fev
tnouiuaU more , gave Jack Crooks his ban
on ball ? , the only ono of the brtno , they al
fat down again.
Then Genius muffed Audrowi' short lly
and everybody felt just like howling , but
they wore afraid of breaking the spelf ?
Coonoy broke It for them.
Ho drove a long fly out to Glenn nnd of
course Glenn squeezed It. '

CHICAGO , May 18 , [ Special' Telegram to
THE BBE. ] The prediction of bicyclists wa
verified to-night , when Ned Reading , the
soldier boy from Fort Omaha , finished first
In the six-day professional bicycle contest at
the exposition building. His steady , plucky
woik has been regarded with much favor nil
along , aud many have said ho would bo up In
front at the finish. Early in the evening
Reading , who wus n lap behind Wilbur F.
Knapp , of Denver , made a magnificent spurt ,
and , passing Knupp , soou loft the latter a lap
boblud , The positions thus gained wore
maintained to tlio end. When Reading dashed
past Knapp ho was greeted wllh thutidors of
applause. Thu finish , whllo very good , could
hardly be called exciting , the uiem being
nearly exhausted by tholr hard work ,
as most of the time the weather has boon
oppressively warm. Therefore , while the
j-idlug was hard , there wus not much spurt
ing toward the close , Reading's effort being
practically tbo last. Knapp claims that ho
was beaten by being kept in a pocket by the
ether riders whllo Reading was spurting ,
but not miinv can bo found who take sides
with him. Bchock hat virtually been out of
the race for two days past on account of tbo
Injuries ho received by fulls , ana ho looked
very poorly at the finish.
Nearly 18,000 i pplo wore in attendance
to-day aud this evening. The amateur races ,
which were finished to-night , wore very
good. At the close of the professional race

Story of Miss R Miiaon's Now Opera
The l
Bella Hoblnson's now romantic opera
"The Smuglers' 6T'&chooton , " which will hi

full of guests who have cbnio out from Lon

Walter Is brave and determines to solve the
ghostly mystery. He sends to London foi
soldiers und disguises them as female ser
vants. One night Lady Penelope , a sister ol
Lord Walter , sees the ghost , mid ruahinj
into the room , relates the legend of the cas <
tie , which is to the effect that many yours
ago the lovely lady Anne was murdered
while singing her infant to sleep , and her
ghost still haunts the spot , always singing a
lullaby. After much search and Investlga
tlon Walter finds that the strunga noises
and wicrd sights are occasioned by u band ol
smugglers , who nightly hold revel in the
ruined part of thu custlo. Ho also Duds that
his sweetheart , the Lady Eleanor , whom he
supposed hud gone to Franco , was in the
possession of the smugglers. Ono night ha
takes up a position in u commanding part oi
the custlo , und is recognized by Eleanor , whc
rushes to his protection , but is soon after recaptured
captured by the smuggler chief. During the
Christmas festivities Lord Wultor gives a
musk ball in honor of his London guest j ,
Whllo the ball is progressing Lady Penelope
entreats her partner to reveal his fnco Jusl

The opera will be presented by the best pos.

Wild West show opens to-day to the public ,
The inaugural corouiony yesterday must be
recorded as a great success In every way
There Is a seating accommodation for 12,00 (
at Nouilly. There wore lo.QOO present at tin
opening performance. It is difficult to hi
too strict as to the exact number of person )
Who secured admission on one ticket nt the
complimentary performance. Notwithstnnd
ing all the good will and tact exercised bj
the stewards yesterday , there must have
been thousands standing. The passages to
the different stands bore a striking resemblance -
semblance to the promenade at the hippo
drome Friday evenings. In fact , the number
bor of persons standing In front of the boxes
considerably Interfered with the view of the
occupants. The official programme pub
lished in the Herald yesterday was closolj
followed. McLano arrived , accompanied by
the boys in blue. At 2:30. : precisely , the
president of the republic , accompanied by
Mmo. Cfurnot , General Brugoro nnd Colonel
Lichtonstolu , arrived nt the private
gate , which was thrown opoti
for their carriage. The mayor ol
Neullly , Crawford and Nate Salisbury
wcro waiting to'rccelvo them. Brugero tele
Cruwford that as the president would not bo
nblo te remain long on account of another
appointment , ho and Mine. Carnet woulO
prefer to visit the camp before tnkinc ; scats
The presidential party walked through the
camp. The Indians wcro already behind the
scenes ready for action. The fifty tents were
empty , but Carnet examined them with interest -
torost und asked questions respecting the
mode of living of the inhabitants. At the
entrance to the tribune the president was re
ceived by Minister McLnno , who conducted
him nnd party to boxes , tastefully decorated
with tri-colorcd bunting. Tlrard , president
of the council , had arrived previously with
Spuller , minister of foreign affairs.
The United States marines , commanded
by Captain Cochrane , inarched across the
arena and took places behind the American
commUsionors to the exhibition. As soon us
the president hud taken his scut the Richmond
mend orator explained In capital French the
performance. The whole troupe defiled be
fore the president , the names of the chiefs
being announced by the orator. Last but
not least came Buffalo Bill , who rode like
the wind on n beautiful ground tjrny mus-
tnng nnd stooped in splendid fashion before
the presidential box to salute. The Ameri
can ling , carried around by an old Indian
Jlgbtnr , elicited , a hearty round of
npnlausc. Then the show began. The
French , always great admirers of
anything connected with horses , wore
loud in their applause at the marvelous
riding of the Indians and cow boys. Annlo
Onkloy came in for hearty cheers as she
shot glass balls that were thrown into the
air. The attack on the caravan of emigrants
and that Oil the Deadwood conch wore wit
nessed with immense interest by the audi
ence. Many of the French portion had
never scon such a realistic performance be
fore. Carnet had Invited McLano to remain
in his bor , nnd before ho left expressed
the great Interest ho had taken in the per
formance and his intention of returning at
an early date to see it again. Mme. Carnet
took a lively Interest in the whole thing and
continually asked McLano for explanations
of certain details which she did not
qulto understand. During the afternoon
Carnet asked McLano to present Mr. Wliito-
law Heia. The outgoing American minister
wont to the box in which his successor was
Bitting , In company with Miss McLane , and
conducted Mr. Raid to the presidential box.
After the presentation , Carnet remained
some t'tmb In conversation with the now
minister , who will not bo officially presented
until next week. The president remained
until after the buffalo hunt und then loft
quietly by a private door in order not to dis
turb thcjaudionci3. After the performance
thp Imm'onco uudionco streamed slowly out
Into the picturesque camp nnd examined the
tonts. The occupants of Buffalo Bill's '
tout wore .naturally the center of at
traction. Cody held almost an open
reception In tbo camp. Cody received the
guests with easy urbanity , which indicates
familiarity with pcoplu of high degree.
During the day the Herald correspondent ,
the French general nnd other army officers ,
officials of many grades und prominent mem
bers of the Amoricun bocioty passed in quick
succession. Colonel Cody hud an uppropi mto
greeting for everyone. Some of the pretti
est members of the American colony were
there , helping thu colonel through with the
Interviews with these visitors who could only
apeak French , Buffalo Bill said to tlio
Herald correspondent that as fur as ho wus
concerned he wus more than pleased with
the opening. Ho only hoped thut the public
would appreciate It. Miss Annlo
Oakloy , the champion rifle shot ,
bud qulto a court of admirers. When
asked what she thought , she said : "I am
delighted with the reception , but I am so
hungry that I must go , to dinner. I was n
httlo nervous for the first time in Franco ,
but I feel that I have su many friends thut I
shall do bettor than I huvor ever done be
fore. * Major Burke , general manager , was
eloquent. He hud spotted trlcolorod hand
kerchiefs in honor of the French rupubllo
and escorted the chosen band of Americans
and English journalists around the camp.
Major Burke was highly amusing in explain
ing to an Italian journalist who
understood a little French that the
object of thu show was not to present a
circus performance , but to give a true pic
ture of American frontier life with the real
character ! ) who had played a part In tbo his
tory of a portion of the American continent
which would soon bo a thing of the past.
"Even the buffaloes , " sold tbo major , "nro
the lost of a race. In a few years tboy will
live but in history. This Is only why our
show is of real interest. In ten yearo the
people who reud of buffalo hunts will recol
lect what wo have shown and what tboy will
never have a cbanto of seeing again. To
give the names of the people present at the
phenomenal premier * . It would bo necessary to
represent the aristocratic portion of tbo

WASHINGTON , D. U. , May 18. I
It Is said that Commissioner Tannnr in
tends to establish an entirely now division In
his oQlco. At the present time the eliilms of
soldiers go to different examiners , according
to the state to which the soldier was as
signed when ho entered the sorvfco of the
government. It has been the custom for all
examiners to hasten what are called original
cases ( nt the expense of the applicant ) for an
Increase of pension. The result Is that while
the original case * are wol < up , the claims for
mcroaso are for behind. Commissioner
Tanner proposes to hnvo one division In his
oQlco devoted entirely to increase claims , no
matter what may have been the original residence -
idonco of the applicant. It Is believed that
this course will have n decided effect in
hastening to llnnl action cases , which In
some Instniico , have been delayed as long
ns three or four years.
Mrs. Harrison has suont the past week In
busv preparation for leaving the white housn
for the heated season. The executive man
sion has boon thoroughly overhauled , the
woolen carpets and curtains have every
where boon replaced by matting , oil cloth
and linen shades. Mr. J. McKcc , the presi
dent's son-in-law , will arrive from Indian
apolis next week to assist In removing his
family to Deer park and In establishing them
there comfortably for the summer. Tno
jaunt down the Potomac that was postponed
on account of the death of Mr. Allan Thorn-
dike Hi co who was n personal friend of the
president and of the secretary of state , will
probably occur next week. Secretary Blaine
had Invited the members of the diplomatic
corps to moot Sir Julian Pauncofoto , the
now British minister nnd It was to bo , and
will bo , the event of the wcok in
which it occurs. AH society sees
more and more of Sir Julian Puuncefoto it
has more and more occasion to congratulate
itself upon the really valuable acquisition to
its circles. In private life Sir Julian Is found
to bo an interesting man. Ho is n good
talker and is not a bad raconteur. Ho can
stand upon his dignity with a grand air , but
as a rule ho Is courteous to nffubillty and
kindliness. He is seen to the best advantage
nftor dinner , when the strains of music are
heard In the drawing room. Ho is a U > oh- musician of high quality for an ama
teur. Whether Washington society will
make the most of the Hritlsh minister's
social qualities remains to bo scon , but cer
tain it is , as ho hu j repeatedly expressed his
opinion of It , that he looks forward with
much pleasure to his term of residence In a
country where ho has already many a close
A very unique case , under the postofllco
department , will como up before tlio United
States court In this district shortly. Yes
terday the postofllco inspectors arrested
Charles D. Poston , who was formerly a del
egate in congress from Arizona. Mr. Poston
is charged with using the frank of Senator
Stewart , of Nevada , and Delegate Smith ,
of Arizona , for Bonding out newspapers. Ho
waived examination and was committed to
bail. This Is the first case which cycr came
before the courts for criminal proceedings
against a man for using a congressional
frank for defrauding the mails , and the out
come will bo watched with a great deal of
interest. Poston's friends can not under
stand why ho descended to this potty species
of fraud.
No man in the last administration received
so much merited abuse us William A. J ,
Sparks , commissioner of the general land
oOlce. Every settler in the northwest wtio
hud anything to do with Sparks' administra
tion knows how exceedingly difllcult it waste
to secure the signature of that gentleman nn
his papers , which was a necessary prelimi
nary to securing a patent for the public land
which bo had taken up in coed faith. A
great many of the decisions ol Commissioner
Sparks arc now coming up for review on
appeal by the homesteaders and pro-omp-
tionors , who fulled to secure the considera
tion to which they think themselves en
titled. Assistant Secretary Chandler has
general charge of till tluwi appeal
cases iu the interior department , and
Mr. Chandler shows not only marked legal
ability , but what la so much more to bo de
sired , common sense in handling these cases.
There was au Instuncn of this to-day when
an appeal Irom the decision of the commis
sioner of the general land olllco made on the
28th of October , 1SS7 , in the case of George
T. Ward , was decided. Commissioner Sparks
rejected the flnnl proof of Ward on his pre
emption declaratory statement for the south-
cast quarter of section . ' 10 , township ill n ,
range 48 w in the Children district of Ne
braska. Ward proved that ho had complied
with all the requirements of the law. Ho
hud taken np the land , hud resided upon it
continuously , had spent several hundred dollars
lars upon improvements , hud broken up the
required number of acres of land , and hud
earned the money to make these improve
ments by working ut his tr.ulo , in tlio town
of Chudron. Sparks rejected his llnul proof
Bolcly upon the ground that his wife and nlx-
childrcn did not live on the place. Wnid
proved Unit his wife I'tid declined to follow
him from lowu simply because she desired
to educate her children , and found the facili
ties In her old homo in the Hawkuyo state
greater tliiin were offered in the compara
tively now settleniont in the vicinity of her
husband's ' home. Sparks hold thut
Ward's wife continued to reside In luwuthat
thernforo his entry was fraudulent.
Assistant Secretary Chandler tukos
an entirely different viow. Ho finds
thut the man lias complied with all tlio
requirements of the luw and that he pre
empted the clulm in perfect gooJ faith. Ho.
therefore , holds that the ilnul pi oof should
bo accepted , and thut Ward's title to his
quarter section should ho perfected ,
There wus another Nebraska land cuso de
cided by Assistunt Secretary Chandler to
day , which wus the uppciil of Isulh V. Vol-
Bom , from the decision of the commissioner
of the general lund olllco refusing hlr appli
cation to amend his timuor culture entry of
June ! ! 0 , IbSO , from thu southeast hair of thu
northeast quarter , and thu northeast half of
the southeast quarter of section 0 , township
ill north , range JIT west , of the Valentino
district of Nohrnsltu. This was a
cuse wherein the oluinml , in pointing
out the land which ho had selected
got mixed on the map , and unconsciously
filed Ux | > n land which he did not dcslro to
enter. Assistant Secretary Cliiuidlnr holds
that timsmui : ) ) us the error was natural for a
man who wus not familiar with maps , the
decision is modified so fur to permit a now
ontrv upon the lands which Folsom Intended
to enter , provided they nro subject to timber
