At tlio Ball Pnrlc.
The boncflt tendered Prank F. Soloo , the
clover nnd cOlclont manuccr of the Omaha
base ball team , at tlio ball park yesterday
afternoon , by his numerous friends , was a
hearty and substantial one. The stands
were all tilled with a smiling and good-
natured crowd , including a largo number of
ladies , and if an exuberance of spirits nnd
enthusiasm can bo taken as an evidence that
everybody had n good tlmo , then Solce's
patrons did. for they whooped nnd ap
plauded and laughed nt everything that took
place , from tbo bull gama down to the fancy
markmanship of Mons , McMabon.
The afternoon's sport opened with a flvo
inning game of utill between the Omahas
nnd n plckud nine , which included Brouehton
nnd Carroll , of the St. Pauls. Manager
Seleo pitched for the White Sox , and the
barrel of slants , and drops , and curves , and
shoots ho oponcd up for the bonolltof the
picked team would have made Tim Kcofc
or Clarkson turn red , white and blue with
envy. He mowed thcm'down In his mind
111 to tbo timothy falls bofora the scythe.
. After on herculean struggle of oao hour's
duration the Omahns won bv the narrow
margin of 5 to 4. C. M. Jackson "emnlrcdU
the game , and was roasted to a tarn by the
bleachers. His work , however , was equal
to that of a Uaffney or a IColloy.
Following the ball game came a hundred
yard sprint race , with Carroll , of the St.
Pauls , and Willis , Nichols and Messltt , of
the Omahas , ns the starters. It was a beau-
titul sprint , and resulted iu a tlo between
Willis and Carroll , Nichols bolng but an Ini-h
or two behind , and Messltt the same behind
Nick. Messltt stumbled at the start , whlcn
polled his chances of winning. Time , 11
In the base Tunning contest wore Walsh ,
Nichols , Strauss , Canuvau and Messltt ,
Walsh and Strauss tied In making the cir
cuit in 15 seconds , while Nichols ran it ia
15 and Mosiltt In 15 > ( .
Too next event on the card was the long
distance throwing contest , in which were
Brotipbton , of the St. Pauls , and Messltt ,
Nichols , Cleveland and Canavan , of the
Omahas , and young Hart , a clover amateur
or ths | cltv. Hart made tbo host throw , cov
ering ono hundred and cloven yards and two
foot ; Broughton second , with ono hundred
and eleven yards and end foot.
The fancy rifle shooting by Mans. MoMa-
bon. which was quite clover , closed the day's
sports. *

precedented in . .Omaha at this sea
son of the year. , But it demonstrated
two things that the , attraction Is very
popular -with the public and that our theater
goers appreciate a good. play. "The Wife"
is a play that suits them , while Herbert
Kolcey , Georia Cayvan , Nelson Wbeatcroft ,
Henry Miller , W. J. Lo Moyne , Charles Wol-
cot Grace Henderson , Mrs. Wolcot , Louise
Dillon , Mrs. Thomas Widen and Charles
DIckson are players who fill to its fullest
bent their ideal pleasure. It is a story of
domestic misfortune exposed in subsequent
incidental rovolattans , seasoned with a suffi
cient amount of the spice ot every day llfo
to keep an audience thoroughly enter
tained , and those artists handle their
various parts so very skillfully
as to hold tbo interest at a high
tension from beginning to end , It would bo
a bard matter to select from the whole any
of the characters for special mention , be
cause they are so closely allied , so important
to each other and all so well acted
that the performance can with
Justice bo taken i only in its entirety.
True , Herbert Koicoy nnd Georgia Cowan
as John Rutherford nnd Helen Truman , re
spectively , are the central figures around
which tbo others rotate , but in no sense do
they overshadow Matthew Culver , tbo vil
lain , as presented by Nelson Whoatcroft , or
Robert Gray , tbo unfortunate lover , who is
portrayed so well by Henry Miller : nor the
mayor , Homer O. Putuam. G. A. R. of W. J.
LoMoyno ; also th clover work of
Mrs. Charles Wolcot as Mrs. Ives ; Louise
Dl Ion , as Kitty Ives , her daugnter , aad
Grace Henderson as Lucille Ferrant , the
desperate woman. Miss Cayvan is an artist
of such sweet grace , ease and naturalness
that it Is impossible for an audience not to
admire , and Koicoy uialcos such a manly
character of John Rutherford as to
elicit the greatest admiration.
It is a model play in the bands of a model

to TUB BEK.I 'iho two great rival Irish
picnics were given nt Ogdon's Grove nnd

thb auspices of the ndhcrouts of the old
Clan-na-Gnol " " and the latter
- - "Triangle" con
ducted .by tha Personal Rights' league ana
friends of Dr. Cronin. The money derived
from the Cheltenham bench affair will bo
turned Qvar to the Cronin investigating com'
inlttqo , to 60 used In aiding * 'tho proscoutioa
of the assassins , while the funds gathered at
Ogdoti's Grove will bo sent to Mr. Parnoll.
The rivalry between the picnics to-day was
not started by Dr. Cronln's ( loath , but the
fooling of the different factions of the Clan <
nn-Gnclwas bitterly Intctislfled by the trage
dy. The two- picnics business dates bnclc to
the split in the Ancient Order of
Hlborncans , which finally led to the
factional fight In the Clan-n n-Qael.
The mutual dislike of the parties in control
of the different picnics to-dav is very strong.
The Ogdon's Grove people think that the
men who originated the Cheltenham beach
affair-arc trying-to fasten the crime of Cro-
nin's assassination on tbo whole Irish people

the imputation. . The Cheltenham , beach

2:30 o'clock that the picnic was at Its height.
At that hour the Cian-na-Gaol Guards , brll *
liant with their bright regalias and green
plumes , the Hibernian Hides , with their mus
ketry and habiliments of war , and the An
cient Order of Hibernians in full dross uni

in earnest. Everybody was in the best of
humor and looking fora good time. From
the tall flag staff at the entrance of the grove
tbo utar spangled banner floated in the
breeze , and as Is usual m such cases , the flag
of Ireland had boon run up to iceop it com

The principal features of the two demon
strations were tha resolutions , or "ad-
drosses" adopted , by each. At Ogden's
Grove the address Issued 1jy the executive
committee and adopted by the assemblage
says :
* "it has been asserted by those instru
mental in covering us with defamation that
we wish to screen the murderers of Dr.
, Cronin.Ve meet here to-day , among other
reasons , for the purpose of vehemently de
nouncing his atrocious murder in our capac
ity as American citizens ; but wo hold that as
Irise-Amerlcans there is no more reason to
hold us responsible for that foul atrocity
than there is to hold any other element of
our body politic for crimes committed by
persons to whom they are kindred. We de
voutly hope that the officers authorized by
law will succeed In bringing to justice the
assassins of Dr. Cronin. "
Wo repudiate , both as American citizens
and as Irih-Amaricans , tbo claim made by
tho'enemles of our race that the Irish element -
mont bas any desire or any purpose to make
the soil of America the theater of acts of
vengeance because of the feuds , factions or
disagreements growing out of political dif
ferences or personal heart-burnings. Wo re
turn our slnccro and most gratjful thanks to
Hon. John M. Thnyer , governor of Nebraska ,
for bis magnanimous defense of the honor of
our race against tbo reckless slanders of a
society of professional foreigners. "
The Cronlnitos' platform says :
"Pledged to tbo maintenance of law in
this land , wo cannot see two sides on which
law-aoidlug people'can stand. Tnose who
are not with the authorities in the execution
of the laws are against them and are dangerous -
gorous citizens. Wo cannot apologize for
crimes and bo law-abiding people ;
hence wo doom it the duty of law
abiding citizens to denounce with all the ve-
bomenco of their nature the most heinous
crime of the nineteenth century , the malic
ious assassination of the patriotic , Christian
citizen , Dr. P. P. Cronin. We also denounce
with no less vehemence the attempt to place
the responsibility for that assassination upon
the Irish people by defaming the honorable
reputation of our murdered follow citizon.
Here , in our midst , In the garden city of the
republic , was conceived , planned and exe
cuted this most heinous of crimes ; hence It
is meet and proper that here in our beloved
home , and by this Immense demonstration of
her Benevolent societies and assembled citi
zens , who come together to bear witness to
tbo character , patriotism and virtue oft our
murdered brother as well as to place on rec
ord the indignation of civilized humnnitv at
the commission of an atrocious crime.
AVe declare that the men who conceived these
crimes are infamous beyond description ;
and wo demand for them punish
ment in accordance with the degree of their
crime , and that the law bo fully vindicated
by the rigid execution of tbo saino.
"Follow citizens of Irish birth or extrac
tion wo have an additional duty to perform.
While the world Is satisfied that the Irish
people , as a people , had no hand in the atro
cious crime , we cannot close our eyes to the
mistakes of our people that led up to this
crime. A few years ago union and a broth
erly solf-sacrlflcing spirit of patriotism pro-
vaitod among our people. To olcvato our
country among the nations of the earth , to
call into its service the able , the competent ,
the honest men of our race was the ambition
of all true patriots. In an ovll hour the ma
lignant , selfish and nrlmo-statned offspring of
the enemy , with slcok ana hypocritical faces ,
clothed in the garb of Irish patriotism , caino
among us. Tlioy showed acfianca to tha
enemy and gallantly waived our own im
mortal green 4,000 miles away from the
"red. " With seemingly earnest words and
glittering generalities they diverted us from
our tried and faithful guide , substituting the
modern patriot with pnoo > o and both bands
on American ofllco. They filled us with
promises and at the same tlmo
filled English prisons with our patriotlo
brethren. In the name of Ireland they rent
into factions every patriotlo Irish society m
America. In the name of Ireland they set
brother against brother. In the name of
Ireland they called for your money. In the
name of Ireland they failed to ucoount for
It , In the name of Ireland they betrayed
Irishmen into the hands of tbo enomy. In
the name of Ireland they attempted to In
vestigate these great crimes. In the name
of Ireland they led their criminals and
dupes to the Carlsuu cottage and murdered
Dr. Cronin. la the name of Ireland they
would bury his body in Laico Michigan uud
his memory m infamy. la the name of Ire-
laud tneso dupes and allies would prevent
the punishment of these murderers , because
they say it would dwgrnoo the Irish pcoolo.
In the name of Ireland this criminal minor
ity would stab American law to vlndUato a
faction. Was ever a people so betrayed I
Was over a people so disgraced I Was over
a people so curtodl Was over a people so
stupefied by the artifices ot cunning and
criminal tirrognncol Was England over
bolter served I Was ever Ireland so deliber

A special from Oaklnnil , Md. , to-tiny , re
ports that Maor-Goncral ] Crook arrived
there yesterday to Join Mrst Crook nnd that
ho was ready to talkr about the Sioux quos-
"Slttlnc Bull , " said General Crook ,
"would not sign the treaty. Ho 1s too buffed
up with his own importance. If'ls a wonaor
to mo how BO great n fraud ns fitting B .11
could bo made such a here of. Why , a wlfltd
woman from the east actually wont out to
the reservation and'proposed mnrrlntfa'to
him , which ho discreetly declined' , ns ho Im'd
already several squaws who would probably
mnko it uncomfortable for her. She Is not
the only woman , however , who hai given
the fellow ciuiso for his conceit , for many
orders como for his photograph.1'
"But did ho not really display great brav
ery in the Custcr llghtl
"No , " said the general , "ho showed Rth
white feather , ran away , und afterwards got
nil tlio glory umong the white mon. With
the Indians Sitting Bull has no reputation ns
a bravo. By them he is considered a modi-
clue man. "
General Crook said ho had done n great
deal of traveling since the 7th or May , when
ho started for the Sioux reservation. Ho
BjysthaSioux reservation is. as long ns the
state of Indiana , nnd Is occupied by moro
than 1,500 ! Indians. The tract is too lurgo
for any prnctlcappurposo. 'Ihoy can not cul
tivate it , nnd much of It luys In the land of
the Dakotus , A peculiarly rich section.
There are sovcn agendas which own thti r
reservation in com mon. What the govern
ment desired was that each agency should
talto a reduced reservation and own itlndo-
pondently , and then soil the land lyingbo -
twcen the seven reduced reservations to the
government at a moderate price. The In
dians objected on the ground that if they'
should sell pnrt of the little laud loft them
the whites would after a while take It all.
General Crook Is of tbo opinion that the
Indiana had been bribed not to soil , but by { i ,
whom ho had no knowledge , but thought tho- f'i
cattle men or railroad companies might have '
had a hand In it. '
It Is now generally conceded on all sldus
that there will DO an extra session of con
gress. It Is believed that the president hna
at last mode u his mind uotlnltoiy to call
boch houses together by the first.swcok in (
November. Those who pretend to know tbo s
inside workings of the president's mind say
the ono thing which madu him hcsitato so '
long before coming to definite conclusion (
was tbo uncertainty which existed as-to the
position which might be assumed by so ma of
the southern republicans in tbo organization '
of tbo houso. There is no longer any doubt-
on this score , ir there over was any at all.
Each and every republican from the southern -
orn states hai been heard from. Every man
among them has expressed his determlna-
tion to stand bv the cuucus and to vote for i.
tha caucus nominee for tbo spcakorship. 1
TIIE srr.vKKiisirip oun.ooic.
Wbilo the preponderance of opinion hare <
is that Mr. Heed has a long lead , in the >
spuakorship race , no ono thinks , ho has secured - '
cured enough pledges to yet tits cloo-
tlou. Some ol the friends of Mr. ) Burrows ,
of Michigan , say that he has developed
a great deal of strength la unexpected quar
ters recently und that there is moro reason1
for Mr. Hoed to fear him than any otbat >
man. The impression is. gaining-ground tt > at >
Muior McIClnley docs not care very mucty
whether he is elected or not , and tha )
In fact ho would prefer to withdraw volun
tarily from the Taco rather than * > to
run the risk of defeat. McIClnloy undoubt
edly expects that in the event of his failure
to secure the spoHlcership ho will get tbo
chairmanship of the committee on ways and
means , and there are many reasons why this
place would be more pleasing to him tuani
the first place. As to the other positions ,
there is nothing to bo discovered as yet. The
south will without doubt be given ono of the '
last , probably the speakorshlp , not that tbU
ofllco is in itself more desirable than a clerk
ship or the position , of sorgcant-at-urms , but
there is moro patronage attached , to iv than
all the otliur places togotbor.
There is hut dly u chance that the con
tested election cases can bo settled before
tbo holiday recess , but the llrst committee
appointed will bo the committee on election ,
as ; after that thu commfttoo on rules
1ms been named. By the time that tbo house .
organizes the public printer will have all i
the papers and testimony ia print , and iioth- \
mg will prevent the early consideration of I
tbo contests. But the democrats have already - I
ready announced their determination to Hit- j
buitor , and uuless there are radical changes ?
iu the rules of procedure , the fillbustcrors |
will bo enabled to prevent action for '
many weeks , and perhaps thov may bo nblo
to keep some of the contests on the docket
during tha ontlro uession , in splto of the ,

W. II. Hnri , of Frankfort , Tnd. , who was j
recently offered the position of third auditor /
of the treasury , after Mr. Hurloy declined ,
arrived in the city last night and visited the
third auditor's afliuti to-duy in company with
Congressman Choadlu. Mr. Hurt bus not
yet made up his uimd whether or not bo will
accept tbo plncc , iuia will probably wait until -
til the return of the president and Treasurer
Huston before reaching a determination.
Mr. Hart was a candidate for tbo pension
agency nt InOIiinupolls , and hU reasons for
hesitating to accent the place which was
given him are piuuly of adomcstiochnrticter.
Ho does- not care particularly for llfo In
Washington , and hesitates about bringing
his family horo. If lit/ shall conclude to sot
osldo his preference for llfo in Indiana , ho
will probably talto hold of his newoQlco
early next week.f
