Righting a Wrong.
One of the most colossal exhibitions of gall
nnd malice of the day Is the attack of the
"Sandy" Mc-
Sioux City Times upoa umpire
Dermott.ono of the most efficientfearlcss-and
conscientious umpires In all the country. It
not qnly berates ana vilifies him in the most
unwarranted way as an incompetent nnd nn
Imbecile , but calls him a robber and a thief ,
simply because ho did Just what the rules
governing the game oblige him to do , and
what ho know to bo strictly right.
The Times' wrath all grow out of a deci
sion Mr. MoDormott was called upon to
make in St. Paul recently , whore the Sioux
City team was ploying. Before the game
MoDormott showed both score cards to th
captains of the two teams and they wore ape
proved.In the third Inning Sioux O It-
wanted to substltuto Flannngan for Bingy
ham , their only oxeuso being that the Apostles
tles were "killing" the ball. Solblo was-
down on the score card as Sioux City's sub-
ntltoto , or tenth man , and Flannagon , accor
ding to tbo rules inado and provided ,
bad no earthly right to bo
substituted for Blngham. The umpire
and both captains approved of the list wlta
Belbol upon it , and no was the only legal
substitute. Sioux City. howeVer , < knuw bet
tor , and endeavored to bulldoze McDermott -
mott Into submitting to their demands. Of
course , like the first-class umpire that ho is ,
ho refused , and in consequence the Corn
Iluskors refused to go on with the game.
McDermott waited the legally prescribed
time live minutes and then gave the gamete
to St. Paul.O to 0which was exactly lust ana
proper , and Sioux City has no cause for com
plaint , no kick coming egalnat any ono save
their block-headed captain.
If there was a posiiiblo chance for a squeal
ncre. ono would certainly emanate from
Omaha , as St. Paul , who Is Omaha's only
rival for the pennant , as It looks now , gets a
victory by MoDermott's decision. But she
only wants what's right , and that victory belonged -
longed as thoroughly to St. Paul as If she bad
'knocked it out of Mr. Blnghaiu by a score of
SO to 0. nnd Jim Powell is well aware of the
fact , but ho had to make some excuse to the
olub managers at homo , anil bo did ll by
blackguarding Umpire McDcnuott. The
limes took up this irresponsible player's
story , and now finds Itself involved In a
$10,000 libel suit , which was Instituted by
McDormoH'8 lawyers on Wednesday lost.
Tlio Polo J/onjuo.
Immediately on tbo close of the baseball
season the organization of the proposed
western polo league will bo completed , and
early in October the Coliseum will bo put In
first-class shape for tbo game. Munaecr
Prince has iimuo fine headway with the pre
liminary work , and has no doubt now what
ever of bringing the enterprise to a success
ful Usuo , ' . ' 'ho probable cities that will be
embraced ia this body are Omaha , St. Paul ,
Minneapolis , Sioux City , DOB Moines and
St. Joe. Spauldliig , tto Chicago baseball
mogul , offers to organize a team in that city ,
if membership in the western league is as
sured him , but It is hardly probable that the
Windy city will bo taueu in , lor many co
gent reasons. Kansas City , too , Is ambitious
lu this line , and Jimmy Manning Is already
culing hU lines for players. Omaha will
experience but llttlo difficulty In securing a
good team , ns the material for the nucleus ii

What ia an Amateur ?
There is a vast number of alleged ( porting
authorities who have a very indefinite idea
of the meaning of the word amateur. The
word , as defined by the athletic organiza
tions of this country , hews very close to the
lino.An amateur becomes a professional
the moment ho contests for a money prize or
gate receipts , or when ho teaches athletics
or In any way derives a revenue from his
athletic qualifications , Any game of ball
oven In which one or more players , who have
played professionally In the past , take part ,
cannot be called an amateur contest.
A Seloo's Tcstlinonlnl.
The benefit to be tendered P. G. Seleo ,
manager of the Omaha base ball team , next
Thursday , promises to bo not only nn inter
esting affair , but a big success , The ball
game in Itself would bo sufficient to satisfy
the lovers of the great national sport , but in
addition to this there are to be u series of
sprint races by amateurs and profes
sionals , match base running , lng dis
tance throwing , niwrcstln ; match , nnd
other athletic performances of a marvel and
entertaining character. The grand stand and.
and the bleachers should bo packcd.and there-
Is every likelihood that they will bo. The
Omahas arc rapidly clinching their
hold on the pennant , and If they win it , It
can bo truttiful said that it has boon won by
a club carrying fewer men than ever won a
championship before. This has all been ac
complished by Solec's excellent manage
ment. Ho has given to Omaha the finest
ball team ever organized In the west , and the
patrons of the sport should not fall to turn
out and give him a rousing testimonial
next Thursday.
Tlio Apnllos' Doings.
The Apollo Wheel club Is In a flourishing
condition and is growing every day. It has
been organUcd but two months , and yet has
a membership of thirty all energetic young
riders. Dell Wertz , who has quite a reputa
tion as a rider , is making a good president ,
and the balance of the officers are active
and efficient.
A run will bo made to Honeycreak Luke ,
Iowa , Sunday morning , leaving the club
rooms at 0:15. : Captain Pixloy says this IB
ono of the finest runs within a radius of
fifty miles , and urges tbo members to turn
out. The distance to the lake , which is a
lovely little sheet of water nestling midst u
very bower of vegetation , is in the neigh
borhood of sixteen miles , through one of
the most picturesque agricultural regions lu
the whole state.
The lost weekly run was to Crescent , Ia , ,
and was a very enjoyable uno. Fifteen of
the boys made the pilgrimage nnd they were
all carried away wltti the delightful trip. The
roads were n trifle dusty , but caused no noil-
ous discomfort.
Tno two ambitious youngsters who tried
to run away from the club are cautioned that
this Is not very becoming deportment on a
regular run.

There is some doubt whether Dick Pholan ,
Des Moincs' .second baseman , will bo able to
nlav ball again this season. The injury ho

Phelan feels his inforced lay-off keenly , as
he was playing the game of his life this sea
son , and was bound to make a record.
No team in the country is more prolific in
nicknames than'.tho Omahas. Nearly every
member of the team is known to the
"bleachers" by some endearing cognomen.
There is "Grover" Cleveland , "Big Fat
Jnkoy" Struss , "Snapper Nava" Coonoy ,
"Tit" Willis , "Well Well" Crooks , "White
Wings" Walsh , "Dad" Clarke , "Kid"
Nichols , "Scrappy Jack" Messltt , "Old
Horse" Andrews and "Jainosey" Canavan ,
Kid Nicholas , says the Kansas City Times ,
Is the star pitcher of the Western associa
tion , and is not only doing fine work but lots
of it. Last Saturday ho pitched two games
against Minneapolis , winning both. Minne
apolis made only ten hits off of him in two
games. Although Nichols is young enough
to still bo called "Kill" he is big boned and
strong , und eighteen consecutive innings do
not wear on him as much us on some of the
old-timers. Ho has n contract with Omaha
that provides that ho'shall not bo reserved ,
and in all probability bo will bo pitching for
Kansas City next season. Nichols
has no such contract with Omaha ,
nnd if ho pitches for Kansas City next year ,
Kansas City will pay the Omaha manage
ment a great big gob of money for him this
It seems preposterous to attribute unsuc
cessful ball playing to poor , Innocent , in
offensive uniforms , but it Is rather singular
that no club that has adopted the black uni
form has had any luck until the somber gar
ments wore discarded. The Clnclnnatls wore
pigmies In black , and lost gaino after game
with such horrifying regularity that it drove
half the ians down in Porkopolls crazy.
They threw their black Nadjys aside , and
have been trotting along with a full measure
of success ever since. Cleveland adopted
the undertaker's colors Immediately after
their first successful eastern trip and climbed
right up on the toboggan. They have dis
carded them within the past week and are
again being Rinllcd upon by queer old Daino
Fortune. Will Oinutia bo compolbd to shoot
her raven togp ? It loolcs that way.
Eastern base ball writers are continually
harping upon the desirability of Jersey City
and Nowrrk as American association cities ,
in case of any vacancies In this body next
season. But the fact Is , that neither ODD of
these cities has a ghoat of a show of ever being
tu It on In tbo American association , nt leant
while there are such thriving , wide-awake ,
go-ntioad towns as Minneapolis , Milwaukee ,
Detroit and Buffalo to draw from. There
will bo a vacancy or two in this organization
there seems to bo but liUlo doubt just now ,
nnd in case there is. the prediction Is made
hero that either Minneapolis or Milwaukee
will bo the city which will hnvo the first call.
Minneapolis has demonstrated this season
her capability of holding up her oud In any
base ball organization , nnd this is probably
her last year as a member of a minor league.
As a base ball town , Omaha isn't to bo men
tioned In the same day.

Under the rose Is a thorn wo know ,
And ever In life wo find it so.
Under the sweetest flowers that blow ,
Hides the thorn that hurts us so.
Under the rose , but the rose Is sweet ;
Fairest of all the flowers wo moot ,
And never in life will it seem loss sweet ,
For the thorn that pierces unwary feet.
Under the rose that wo pluck In joy ,
Is tlu\ sharpest thorn Its ono alloy ;
So pain and pletisuie , grief and joy ,
If It wore not so would sweetness cloy I
Under the rose that wo pick to day ,
The roio that the months are speeding

The thorn lies hidden unfely away.

Under the sod where the wild crass grows ,
Under the leafy trees ,
Where the moaning sons : of tbo sad wind
Llko the murmur of the seas
There , whore ray thought * all end In sighs ,
There's where uiy heart lloi.
Where the llfelusn leaves rustle ana fall ,
Wedded to the ground ,
Where the night bird's coo Is the onlycall
That breaks the stillness round ,
There , whore my spirit of darkness flloi ,
There's where my heart lies.
The wind blows low , for death hoins here
Its silent ruign supreme ,
And never the force of u driflng tear
Can wash away its dream ;
And there , In the grave where love ne'er
There1 * where toy lieart lies.

A correspondent who dined in Japan
describes vividly the sensations pro
duced by eating raw fish : "Tho whole
fish was there , his head and shining
blue eyes , his tail and llns , but at a
touch the shape came apart nnd lay in
thin slices upon the bones , a miracle of
the carver's art. I took n chopstick
full. The first taste of caviare and
onions is nn event in a lifetime : the un
known ollvo and pungent garlic Imvo
made episodes in every career , but to
close the jaws on a slice of cold , raw
jiah , and have the clammy , rubber-like
tlesh ciulvor and slip under the tooth
has a horror peculiarly its own. The
sense of its being something lately
dead , something corpsoy , is sickening.
Ono slice filled mo almost to ovorllow-
ing , nnd I confined myself to the gar
