Results of the Pour-nail Rule.
rMionoincmxl pitchers this season are a rar-
/ty , Indeed. They uro all getting it in the
ncek right along , from the incomparable
Keofo and Clarkson , down to the most obscure -
scuro twlrlcr In thu minor leagues and asso
ciation. The lilts are averaging ubout ten a
game nil through the base ball belt , aud it Is
seldom that any pitcher holds the opposing
team down to a number of hits under eight.
'Thin ' must all bo attributed to the four-ball
rule , as there is nothing else that could have
brought about such a condition of things. It
would bo absurd to claim that there
has been such an improvement in
the batting ability of the profession ,
for that Is an impossibility. AH that is
o bo acquired In that line tins been acquired
long since. It Is not the siced ; , or the drops ,
or in nnd out shoots that is proving the pitch
ers strength to-day , but cool judgment , a
knowledge of butters and the delivery of n
ball that suits them least. A twlrlcr that
docs not loose his head , but nt all times re
tains the oven tenor of his way , is the man
In the box to pile up the victories. While the
four bull rule has undoubtedly increased tbo
batting , u long erled-for Improvement , it has
nUo brotiaht about moro bases on bull * . In
thn eighteen games so far played
in the Western association , .17:3 : men
huvo been given their basns on balls ,
nnd n goodly number of these at the hunus of
Omaha's pitchers nt that. Notwithstanding
this latter drawback , the base ball publto is
Immensely pleased , for the more men who
get on buses the more inspiriting , the more
exciting nnd Interesting the game. U is quito
probable , however , at the next nnnuiil meetIngs -
Ings of the two leading associations , the
American and the National league , which
malco nil the rules nnd regulations ot the
great game , that something or some way
will bo devised und adopted to' relieve the
pitcher of the burden of the handicap ho now
Buffers. Pitchers all over the country are
kicking hard , and many first-class authori
ties aver that many of them are pitching wild
ball purposely , so us to render the four-bull
rule unpopular. However , it will slick , and
twllers , If there are any of this kind , uro but
culling off their proboscises to spite their
lovely countenances.

and was valued at $ 'Cii , > X > .
On the slope the Cznr was considered the
finest nud inpst promising three yenr-ofd In
the world , Ho was a beautiful chestnut ,
with -8UinU star and four white stockings.
Ho Etood fifteen hands und three inches high ,
nnd pulled down the scales at 1,11X1 pound * .
Although of u liner coat und different color ,
ho bore a utrlKiug resemblance to his famous
brother , Emperor of Norfolk , nnd many
connoisseurs of fust horso-fldsh con
sidered him several seconds luster
thau the latter. As a two-year-old ho
throw out a couple of curbs which interfered
much with his training , anil ho was started
only twice , but won on both occasion * . Ills
llrst start wus for the I'alo Alto stakes , a
handicap of a milo f5r Uvo-yoar-olcls. In
that event ho curried 110 pounds , and ran the
distance In IM1 , bcatuiK WildOuU , Shannon

November 13 , ho carried 115 pounds ana won

established him us n leading candidate for
the American Derby was his victory in the
Pucilic Derby , ono mile und a-half , run April
-'J. In this race he defeat eel Lorrcnto , Wild
Oats , Joe Courtney und Godfrey , and ran
the Derby distance In 2:30 , which was the
best record for an event of the kind until

champion lady rider of America , ut
Los Angeles. Time , 0:97. : She is
a great rider nnd coniiduntly expects to bent

The llfth annual fair of the Omaha Fair and
Exposition association will bo hold at the fair
grounds , this city , September 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 and 0.
This'is the great annual agricultural exposi
tion of thi ) state , and in whlcu every busi
ness man ana uvtory farmer should taka a
lively interest. It is also the greatest live
stock show held west of the Missouri river ,
and as such is bccomlnir f vnous all through
the western states. The racing programme
this full is confidently expected to eclipse
that of any previous year , as the list of en
tries will bo three-fold luiger than over
before. All the well-known hortes In
the western country will bo hero , und there
will bo some very interesting sp'eclal events.
Thu management hnvo also determined to
add many now features to tbo list of attrac

CIIICAOO , May i7. Tp'Uio Snorting Editor
of THE BKU-Sir ; In jjour Sunday's issue 1 ,
noticed a largo paragrapii to the effect that
Miss Williams the ; Omiha so-called bicycle
"wonder" would shortly' eiigago in a match
with Miss Lotto , Stanley -who Is now in the
east in the Now York /BOO and bids fair to
bo beaten , 100 miles.j Do Miss Williams
and her backers and numerous managers
wish a soft mark for a/match I It seems so
In soliciting Miss Sanloy ( for a race. I
take exceptions to the title Miss Williams
arrogates to herself as "champion of Amer
ica. " . The' cnampUm of ; America ( and thn
world ) is Miss Jeislo Oakes , of London , who
won the Chicago race , would have won the
Omaha race , but for her fall , as everybody
knows , nnd is now winning and beating all
records in the Now York raco. Miss Oakes
has swept all before her , und can sweep all
female Americana on wheels oil her track ,
and this claim by ( bo soumlnely infatuated
and blind admirers of MUa wjlllauib , whom
J glvo credit for hpr great speed will , result
in a rude awakening whepever the little
Britisher meet&xthe American girl. To be
sure Miss \VUllams IE speedy , and why
ghouldn'tsbo bql Trained dally on the same
coed tracK , while Miss Oakes i winning
championships against untold quantities on
strange tracks' , , with a change ot diet , differ
ent climates , etc. , which uiy experienced
trainer nnd athlete knows to bo injurious.
If Miss Onkcs had these ad
vantages , a comparison of speed
in the Indies would be like comparing Spok-
nno ( winner of the Kentucky Derbyto ) n fat
roadster so far would the Omaha " 'wonder"
bo loft behind. Miss Williams' backers
need not look to Now York fern match as I
shall be in Omaha in a week's time prepared
to put up cash for Miss Oakes to contest any
kind of a race against all so-called "won
ders. " Yours in the race ,

The western association race is becoming
very interesting. Some people seem to think
St. Paul has n walk-over , but this is not n
fact. Omaha is playing great ball , despite
hur reverses , and it is very probable that In
the eourso of another fortnight she will over
take the Apostles.
Grand Island is mopping up the ground
with everything that dares tackle her. The
players uro ns follows : Hourke , pitcher and
short ; Snyder , catcher ; Heady , first ;
Hughes , pitcher ; Pond , second ; Camp ,
third ; nnd IIIcKenbergor , Hayes aud Qninn ,
the outfield.
Jnck Crooks is making an excellent captain
for the Omaha club. His work is already
utmarcnt. Aside from being an enthusiastic
player , ho watches nil the points of the gumo
very closcfy , and seldom fails to nmko the
proper piny. Another good fo.ituro about his
work is that ho encourngos the pitchers and
inspires them with c-onlidonco.
Old Buffalo is plnving a remarkable third
b.iso for the Omaha team. He is admirably
suited for the position. Ho Is n magnificent
thrower , and us quick ns u cat In "handling
ground balls. Since the opening of the
season ho has made plnvs that would even
cause the { matchless Jerry Denny to turn
green with envy. Omaha is fortunate-
having n man who Is so capable of playing
the position , which Is conceded to bo the
most difficult to 111 ! of any on thu diamond.
Canavan Is Droving thy phenomenal fielder
of the Western association. Some of his run
ning catches hnvo been of the miraculous
order , nnd there is no ball comes to his terri
tory but what ho is likely to cut , no matter
how far or how hard ho has to run. So fur
ho heads thu association In fielding nnd ranks
way up among the battora. Ho Is belce'a
most valuable find.

overruled Morton nnd decided that thu sign

tmmt of any of the regulations of the base
ball law , but , inasmuch ns the board of di

chnso Kansai City's franchise nnd team it is
