fullest strength , nnd two close and hnrd
fofoght battles will bo the result. Everybody
Omnlia UVi , Sioux City O.
Sioux City , the team that cnmo down hero
flvo or six weolts ago and lambasted Omaha
for three straight games , is back agnln.
Yesterday afternoon they wont out to the
r ball park to see whether they couldn't white
wash the White Sox ono inning out of nine ,
and' they did U , but it was the closest kind
of n shave.
The Oiuahns had It In for the Corn Husk-
cr i and they all but wiped them from Iho
fnco of Iho car tli. .
In the very first inning Mr. Webber , who
was In Iho BOX for ttio visitors , fell Into tlio
sizzling puree , nnd It made the crowd of fif
teen hundred people very Jubilant.
They remembered Mr. Webber a lew
weeks back , when his drops nnd shools and
other productions pluyod such havoc with
the White Sox ,
But lot's sco how it all cnmo to pass.
In the opening inning Willis. Cleveland
and Strauss were sent to lirston bad balls in
rapid succession. Jack Crooks then c-.iiuo to
the pinto , and deluging It with u mouthful of
Yucutnn Juice for luck , ho cried :
"Get ready there , now , all of you , nnd
when I kill It , cnmo in. "
Then Webber sent him ono of his choicest
drops , nnd Jnclc met It cordially , making a
beautiful line hit to left field , on which
Willis nud Cleveland Scored.
What n shout Ihero was at that.
Everybody thought , you know , of course.
that the struggle was going to bo hot and
furious , and wanted to hooray while tlioy
Lad a chance.
The next man up was the lad with the
terra cotla curls , and before anybody real
ized it ho had smashed the bull way out over
Holnun's head for three sucks ; then
Andrews followed wilh a homer over Hie
fence ; Nnclo got lo first on nn egrecious
- muff by'Powoll ; Clarke struck out ; Willis
f \vas lilt with the ball , and Cleveland made n
fine drive for three cushions , and the result
of this fearful cannonading was nine largo ,
fat , corn-fed runs.
"Oh , Webby , Webby 1" cried the crowd.
'What ails you ! "
In tncir half the visitors also scored , but
I ono tally , however , and Cline got that. Ho
, knocked out n thrco-buzgor , and came m
after Willis had caught Powell's fly.
I Then the White Sox stepped right up for
eight moro consecutive innings , and bounded
out ono or more runs in every ono of them ,
save the last , when a bil of sharp fielding
closed them out.
Gracious , how the crowd did cheer and
i ; Jeer and guy the Corn Hushors , and when
the gnmo was over they looked like a crowd
of dyspeptics.
They did some clover stick work , however.
nnd there is no probability that Clarke found
it necessary to lot out nny extra kinks in ins
Derby last night. In the sixth inning 'they
KOt his range beautifully , and on live cork
ing singles drove in four runs , nnd had it not
liavo boon for superb fielding , would have
made as many more.
They were hopelessly behind , however ,
nnd played In a dispirited , perfunctory sort
of a way , nnd seemed only anxious to got
through with the game as quickly us possi
ble.
ble.This morning they will have Siobel in the
box , and this afternoon , Flunmignn ; and
Captain Brosmin says ho will bo woefully
disappointed if they don't take both garnet.

Cnnm ASSEMULT Qnotwns , July 8.
[ Special to TUB Bni : . ] It is evident that the
crowd Is dally increasing , The Crete as
sembly tins a largo constituency of the best
nnd brightest people of Nebraska ; it has
eight successful years behind It , nnd can not
bo superseded or in any way diminished by
any now organization of the kind. It was
the first Chnutnuqtm assembly over estab
lished In Nebraska , and will probably always
remain first , both m numbers nnd In real
merit. The unusually cool weather of last
night nnd this morning created a great de
mand for wraps and woolen nuparol. Trunks
were ransacked and grips were emptied of
their contents in the search for something to
keep warm , and sighs wcro breathed for
shawls and overcoats left behind. However ,
by 10 o'clock the genial rays of the sun had
sulllclontly warmed the ntmosphoro and dis
pelled the dampness , nnd comfort again
rolgu3d among the tent-dwellers.
To-day being lawyers' nnd editors' day the
thought of the morning prayer meeting
turned to those iwo great professions. The
loader road extracts from St. Paul command-
lug the keeping of the law , nnd showing that
the beginning of the law is in and from God.
Prayer was made for lawyers that they
might bo able to interpret Iho law correctly ,
and help people to understand it. The
mighty power for good or evil that the news
paper exerts was dwelt upon , and prayer
was made for editors that they may under
stand the Importance of their work , and use
their great inlhiuiico always only for the
things that are honest and pure nnd of good
report ; lhat they may servo the Lord with
their hearts and with their papers.
The regular classes of the forenoon met as
usual , and with tholr usual attendance and
interest. Dr. Duryoa's bible students' class
seemed oven moro interesting than usual.
The instructor grow so animated that ho dis
carded the chair on whicti ho usually sits
during this hour and dcltvored lo-dny's '
lecture standing. In his sludy of Iho books
of tlio bible ho has now como to the books of
Moses. The framework of these live books
Is bislory , and Iho history received some
additions after bis timo. Thu people of Israel
were responsible for these books , nnd took
care that no ono should tamper wilh thorn.
The lecturer showed the Importance of these
books to us. There is no bettor written book
in all literature for its purposes , than the
book of Genesis. It is both scientific and
philosophic , and it shows the making of the
Hebrew people a people without whom
there would have been no Christianity , u people
ple moro important in many respects than
any other Iho world has ever known. In
referring lo Iho fact , lhat Hie Hfo of Moses
was made up of twenty years of pupilage ,
twenty years of rellection and preparation
and twenty years of ollleient work , the
lecturer emphasized the furt that Moses
spent forty years in getting ready for his
work , and regretted that to-day people spent
so little time in preparing for their life work.
In showing that patriotism is second only to
love to God , ho took advantage of the near
ness of the national holiday and delivered
quite a Fourth of July speech , but speaking
in scathing terms of the neglect or IndilTor-
enco of Americans to many things tuat go to
make a righteous natlou.
At ' 13 p. ui , occurred the principal event of
the lawyer's part of the day the lecture on
"The Art of the Advocate , " by Hon. J. W.
Dotiavan , of Michigan. Moro than a score
of lawyers ocuupied seats in the large audi
ence. Upon the platform were three Judges
of as many Judicial districts in Nebraska.
After a cornet solo by Miss Park , Judge
Donavan was introduced by President Foss ,
and began ono of the finest lectures ever
deliverel on the Assembly platform. The
judge is a man of line appearance and great
ability , and has power to Interosl common
people as well as lawyers. His address was
pointed and Illustrated by many real inci
dents from Iho cotirt room , told with the
peculiar zest of ono familiar with such
scenes. The lecture must be heard to bo
appreciated.
At 5 o'clock Hon. William Cumbaclc deliv
ered hislecturo on "Tho Model Husband" tea
a largo and appreciate nudionco.
In Iho evening Mr. Bushnell , president of
the State Press association , delivered Iho
annual address to the editors. ' 'In the City

repealed it.
Maryland passed n prohibitory law in
