Yesterday was ladles' day at the ball park ,
and ncvcrnl hundred of the dear creatures
were on linntl to witness the coming cham
pions rcccivo one of the most unmerciful
' 'drubbings they have experienced tbls year.
Can it bo that the fair ones , with their
feathers and ribbons and smiles , ncted as a
hoodoo to the homo team !
It is to bo hoped not.
I Bo that as It may , however , we wcro most
Inglodouslv licked , nnd by the weakest team
in the whole Western association nt that.
Willis was put in the box nt tha last mo
ment , and , whllo ho was hit hard and often ,
it was not his work alone that defeated the
demons , but the general leggy and dispirited
play of the whole team.
To bo sure , the error column gives no In
dication of tbls lamentable fact , but still It
Is true that not a single member of tbo team
played as If ho cared the toss up of u penny
which way the game went. Flies were mis
judged , bases run like ice wagons , and care
less , indifferent work of all kinds marked
their playing through the entlro nlno in
nings.
Crooks took Strauss' place behind tbo bat
In the lust four Innings , nnd caught a regu
lar Dr. Bushong game. Ho was guyed a
good deal from the bleachers , and his mon-
koyshincs In return was about the only life
there was to the game.
Big fat Brodly umpired a vile camo. Ills
decision on balls and strikes , against Willis
In particular , hadn't the soinblanco of cor
rectness or justlco in them and ho seemed to
tblnk that because tie was being lilt pretty
liard ho might us well glvo it to himtoo , nnd
lie did so with a vengeance.
The gumo is unworthy of more than a
passing notice , for it was about the most
dreadful specimen of a game seen hero this
year. The score :

Cleveland Rnccs.
CLEVELAND , 'O. , July 31. ( Special Telegram -
gram to THB'BEE. ] Another favorable day
attended the grand circuit races bore this
afternoon. There was a considerably larger
attendance than on the opening day , and the
contests were oven more exciting. The
scnsatiou of. the day wus tbo fast hcut paced
by the stnlllon , Brown Hal , who lowered the
champion record of 3:13 held by himself to
2:12 > In the same race another stallion ,
lloy Wilkes , reduced bis mark to 3113.
Tbo first race was the 3:27 class , with ton
starters. Sprague Golddust was the choice
at aboiit oven money against the field , but
was not fast enough to .beat Jim Fuller m
the first boat , and the latter lowered his
record to 8:19 > . Then Sprague Golddust
jot a heat and a mark of 2:20 : , but broke
In tha. third when ho looked like u
winner , and Annie Wilkes finished first.
In the fourth inning Annie H. , who had boon
going fast but steadily , sold down and was
first , gottinpr the fifth beat also in faster
time. Sprague Golddust tried hard for the
sixth heat , but Annie 11. was too fast for
lilin , and.cndcd the race in her favor.
A great battle was looked for in the free
for all , and it exceeded all expectations.
Brown Hal was the first onoico. In the early
pools , and just before the start ho sold at 3 to
5 against the field , lloy Wilkes bringing
about the samo. _ The cracks all laid uu lu
the first heat , so'that Jewctt had it his own
way In slow timo. The next heat was a duel
between Bessumer and Hey Wilkes , both
making the Quarters first , but the \Vilkes stal
lion outlluishod Bessemer in 3:13muklng'a : tie
with the best stnlllon record. Hey was a
favorite before tbn next beat , but Browne
Hal was cut loose in this mile , nnd after JCoy
had led to the half in 1:06 Hal came so fast
that Wllkus tired nnd the Tennessee flyer
reached the stand m 2:12 : > . The veteran ,
Gossip , Jr. , also got past lloy. This made
Brown Hal n strong lavorite , but the next
heat hn was laid up and Key Wilkes boat
Bessemer in 3:15 : % Then the lot were tired
and Brown Hal took n heat in much slower
time. The sixth heat looked like a victory
for lloy Wilkes , but Brown Hnl , who was
dead Inmo , came home under the whip , being
carried off bis feet nnd winning a great vic
tory by a short head.
The 3:20 : trot was not started and goes ever
till to-morrow. The 2:24 : and 2:13 classes nro

Up Again.
BisvAncK , N.-tfolt , , July 31. The report of
the committee on ojcctlvo franchise was con
sidered again to-ddy nnd the woman suffrage

power to oxtcnd _ Uxo motion to amend the
rcoort of the judiciary committee so that a
man may bo eligible to the ofllco of judge

THE SOUTH OMAHA BUDGET ,
Rumors of n , Ohantro In the Stock
Yards Managomont.
THE OFFICIALS DENY THE STORY.
P. D. Armour Snld to Have Scoured
an Option on the Property Mo
Slinun nnd Pnxton In
terviewed.
rho Stock Yard * .
It la reported on good authority Hint n deal
Is pending which If consummated , will result
In a change of ownership of the South
Omaha Block yards.
An Individual who claims to bo fnmlllar
with the transaction , states that the prop ,
crty of the Soutn Omaha stock yards
company is likely to pass Into the hands ot a
syndicate of pork nnd beef packers nt the
liomlof which la Phillip D. Armour , the well
known capitalist. It is said that whllo Mr.
Armour was In Omaha on his recent trip ho
effected an option for the purchase of
n largo block of stockyards stock
held by AVilllnin A. Paxton and
John A. McShano. Slnco Mr. Armour re
turned to Chicago It Is reported that the pur-
ctmso was effected and that the same re
sulted In the controlling interest being put In
the hands of the packers. It is also re
ported , nnd the statement comes from n reliable
liable- source , that W. A , Paxton , vlco presi
dent of the slodtyards company , has ten
dered his resignation , to take effect nt an
early onto.
Mr. Pnxton was seen by a reporter yes
terday , nnd when asked concerning the
matter assumed a Sulltvanlstlo nttltudo nnd
said * ! "I hnvo nothing to say. The less said
about it now the hotter. You fellows are
always creating trouble. " The speaker
then retreated through nn atmosphere savor
ing of brimstone. Being pressed for an
explanation ho positively refused to talk.
Mr. McShano'a Statomo nr.
"No , sir , " sold John A. WcShano with
emphasis , ' -there Is no truth in the report
that the packing houses control the Unlon _
Stock Yards or are buying stock to control
the yards. The facts are , the packing
house companies are Acllintr Instead of buyIng -
Ing stock. "Why , Swift & Co. , alone sold
575.000 worth of stock. It is true that
Philip D. Armour has bought nome I stock ,
but that was done two years ago. Mr. Ar
mour sold $100.000 worth of Chicago , Mil
waukee & St. Paul railroad stock , preferring
to hold stock of the yards. The packing
companies don't own one-sixth of the stock
and never can control the yards. Them is
not n particle of truth in cr foundation for
the rumor that there is to bo a chnngo and
reorganization of the ynras. "
"Hut has not Mr. Paxton sold his stock ,
nnd will his place not have to bo filled ? "
modestly inquired the reporter.
"No. sir. True , Mr. Pax ton has sold his
stock , but that wan six months ago , und a
man does not have to bo a stockholder to bean
an ofllccr. There Is no contemplated
chnugo. "
"Hut , Mr. McShano , " queried THE BKK
representative , "there is a seemingly well-
founded rumor that a syndicate is bolng
organized to obtain control of the stock of
the yards. What truth is there in it , or
what is the foundation for such a report ! "
"There is not a word of truth in the mat
ter , nor is there any foundation for such a
report. The truth Is that In u largo institu
tioa like the stock yards more or less stock
is being constantly transferred. "No , sir , "
said Mr. McShano with significant emphasis ,
' there will bo no change in the stock yards ,
its management or control. "

AN ELEVATOR BOY THE VICTIM ,
Ho Steps Into nn Open Shaft and
Is Proolpltntcd n Distance ot
More Tlmu Thirty
Foot ,
1'Vll Down a. Shaft.
A most uufortuimta combination of nlr
cumstnncos occurred last night , whloh uiay
result In the death or Fred Armstrong , a
young lad about seventeen years old. Hu
has been employed for some time past In
running the elevator In the Ware block nt
night for the convenience of the Unlon [ club.
Last night after bis tour of duty was ever ,
ho ran the elevator up to the fourth floor
nnd stepped Into the club kitchen to exchange
a-word with ttio cook , leaving the door of tlio
elevator shaft open. A few minutes afterward
an elevator boy from another building , ,
whoso name could not bo learned , rang the
boll for the oluvntor several times. Ho iind
loft hla coat with young Arm.itrdiig nnd
wished to got It.
His ring not being responded to nnd think
ing , perhaps , that Armstrong had gone homo
ho opened the door of lha shaft and pulled
the elevator down. It had ronchrd n point
Bomowhcro between tbo first iind second
floors when young Armstrong came
from the club kitchnn , on tho/ourth lloor.
In answer to the summons , and stepped
through the door of the shaft into what ho
supposed was the clovitlor. Ho was precipi
tated onto the top of the elevator , about
thirty feet below , striking the double Iron
beam extending across the top of tlio clo-
valor. Ho landed ou his buttocks , nnd also
struck thu back of Ills head with suQlcIont
force to cause n severe scalp wound. '
A companion who tird been In the Itttchon
with him heard a noise nnd stepped lo the
olevntor. Hearing gro'uns bi.-low , ho ran
back into the kitchen , exclaiming , "My God ,
Fred Is killed , " nnd then ran down stairs
und Into the street to give the alarm.
A crowd quickly assembled nnd the boy
was lifted gently out ana placed on tlio floor ,
whllo others nottllud the patrol wagon nud
city physician.
Other physicians were also summoned nnd
arrived ut the scene In a few moments. An
examination disclosed two severe contusions
near the lower extremity of the spinal col
umn and two more on the back part of each
thigh , besides the sculp wound on the back
of the head. The physicians wore of the
opinion that no bones were broken. The
contents of tlio stomach wcro thrown off.
Under the dlicction of the physicians the lad
was placed on u stretcher uud convoyed to tlio
place \vlicro ho has boon boarding , No. 304
North Fifteenth street.
Dr. Halph arrived ou the scene at this
juncture ami volunteered any assistance that
might bo required. Ho also made an exami
nation und expressed the opinion tbub thu
boy would not live , us the shock had boon
very bovuro.
Young Armstrong's parents have boon out
of the city for about two months , and ho and
his brother huvo been boarding ut the above
number. Thu brother loft for DjnvorouTues
day last. Fred has been working for Spolmuu ,
thu plumber , during the day , and run the
elevator In thu Ware block at night as a
means of Increasing his income. Ho bears a
most excellent rciiutullo'i , und Is spoken of
by nil who huvo come in contact with him as
being an honest , hard working lad , always
ready to oblige , and having u pleasant word
for nil his acquaintances.
It is most unfortunate that there Is no
light in the elevator. Had there boon alight
the boy would have r.oilced Its absence and
the accident would not h.ivu occurred.
