The Novoinlior nicotlngs of the Western
k , nssnoliulon , tlio National league and the
American aHsoulatlon will bu fraught with
much that Is Important to the welfare and
progress of the great national sport. A curi
ous concatenation of circumstances makes
this inevitable , and everywhere base ball
mdcula and managers are wliottlng their
ctinotors for some wholesale slashing.
The meeting of the Western association
Will bo held In this city on Friday , Novem
ber 15 , and IB liable to hold over a day or two
on account of the bulk of business to trans-
net , That theio will bo no end of surprises
is likewise an undoubted fact , but to hint at
their nature would probably bo only to In
crease the snarl anil bring no good upon any-
ono. Among other things that will bo at
tended to Is the reformation of the nssocla-
tlon , the examination of applications , the
selection of new members and the acceptance
of the resignation of outgoing clubs. At this
early data It would bo impossible to predict
wno will iill the yucanclcs that will occur at
tno end of tlio season. That Dos Monies and
St. Joe are going out there Is no longer a
shadow ot a doubt.
Another matter of vital Importance that
will be urced upon the meeting is an abso
lute provision covering drawn and postponed
games , This will bo vigorously treated in
the meetings of the two major bodies , and it
is predicted here that not only the transfer
ring of games scheduled for ono city to an
other will bo peremptorily abolished but the
doubling up of two games in an afternoon
I also. If by any arrangement two games are
to bo ployed in ono day , lut one of thorn be
Ma the morning and the other in thu alter-
noon , Those games this season Iiavo given
rise to much ( Ussalli. faction , nnd the suspi
cion of unfairness has been attendant upon
many of them.
Another matter that will bo liberally
treated upon Is the umpire question , uml talc-
Ing tlio general sentlmont prevailing among
men who inulco the game a business and a
study , the double umplro system will bo
adopted in the three associations mentioned
In the opening pnrugnipli ,
Thliwlllboa move In the right direction ,
for so clearly has the trial of two umpires
established tholr advantages and elllcleney
over ono that the system is sure to bo
adopted. It is Impossible for a single umplro
to dccldo correctly of the movements of men
on bases and at the bat too , and consequently
many of Ills adjudications must bo Inllu-
encod by the players or purely guess work ,
ono or the other. Tumultuous and threaten
ing 8ccuos upon the ball Hold , arls-
Inj ; from error * of the umpire ,
have boon of too frequent occur
rence to Justify tlio Ignorance of any proposi
tion that will tend to auinllorato the present
condition of things , The double umplro sys
tem Is the happy remedy. A man to dccldo
on balls and sti-lUes , and ono to watch ttio
bases , to alternate every innings. Is beyond
a doubt the way out of this ugly situation ,
And , moreover , Ills bound to come and comate
' Still another matter calls for consideration ;
and that is a chaiigo In the position of the
base bags , but whether there will bo any
notion in this respect remains to bo seen.
liut it strikes an attentive observer of all
the details of play that a great many wrenched
Uuuos , snramod ankles and spiked feet might
bo8i\ved by having the bases Hush with the
srouud and the players privileged to over
run them all , the satno as first. This , of
course , has Its woaic points , but they could
nil bo satisfactorily oHsnnatod by a careful
study of the situation.
As to the work being cut out for the West
ern association meeting , little remains to bo
said. This body , however , should take lull
cognizance of the fact that they constitute
tno third base ball organization of the coun
try , nnd nro , in consequence , entitled to just
and adequate recognition at the hands of the
older bodies. Their views on tlio wants nnd
necessities of the game should bo as cogent
as these of the potentates of the league or
association , and deserving of just as much
consideration. Consequently , they should
not wait and depend upon the notion of the
two major bodies to legislate in their own ,
and while it is only wise counsel to advise
them to adhere legally to and abide faith
fully by the smallest requirement of the
national agreement , it is urged upon them to
make rcrtuln laws and regulations of their
own to speak up and linvo a voice on base
ball matters , and not sit idly by and
permit the thick headed Von Dor Alies ,
the arbitrary Byrnes , the Sterncs , the
Sodons , the Mutrics , Days , Nimlcks ,
Wrights nnd Spnuldlugs.to map out a course
of action for them Irom which they must
not nor aaro not dovinto.
It is this passive dubscrvionco which strius
the Western association of its virility , its
force and independence and render * U little
moro than a subsidiary branch of tlio older
bodies , nullities its laws , and makes it insig
nificant in the eves of these wlio are wall
aware of tlio rights and prerogatives to
which they ere entitled.
Let the November meeting of the Western
association bo a meeting of the Western
association , and not a ratiticatlon convention
of the meetings of the National leuguo and
The Ouiobor Slioot.
The Gwin and Dunmlro grand annual trap
shooting tournament will ho held upon their
grounds across the river Tuesday , vVodncs-
day and Thursday , October I , 3 and 3 , and
promises to bo a highly succcsstul
affair. There will bo many notable shots
In attendance from all the adjoining stales ,
as well as largo delegations from the Lin
coln , Kearney , Hastings , Grand Island and
Fremont gun oiubs. The management pre
dicts tlio largest assemblage of local sports
men that has gotten together hero for yoars.
There will bo live pigeon , blackbird and
Kngllsh sparrow matches , in addition to arti-
llolal target shoots without number. There
will bo no handicapping , only In sooelal
matches , no ono barred and no favorites
played. Messrs. Gwin & Dunmlro Intend to
do llio thing up right. Tnoy are making
elaborate preparations for tlio occasion and
visiting sportsmen can rely upon most satis
factory arrangements as to accommodations ,
conditions of ttio shoots and all minor de
tails , Tlio shooting grounds , which are in
line condition , are only live minutes'
ride on the smooth-running motor from
tlio Mlllard corner , and no inconvonlonoo
will ho experienced In gutting to and from
the grounds. In fact the tournament will
bo conducted on a strictly tlrat-class basis
from the opening "pull" to the closing crack.
A row Cold , Hard Pnots ,
The annual hunts of the Omaha and Lo
FovraGun clubs will both coma off during
the last two weeks In October , and alraady
the members are getting the fever bad ,
These club hunts , however , should bo
deprecated by all honest and legitimate
sportsmen who have an Interest in the pres
ervation , protection and propagation of our
game birds and animals ; in sootli , they
should bo frowned down and abolished as a
regular yearly practice forever. They are
literally nothing moro nor less than a wanton
slaughter of game ; nothing escapes that
wears hair or feathers , it amounts just tlio
sumo to the emulous gunner whether ho
bags a suow-buntlug or a geese , a ground
squirrel or antelope , they all contribute
toward swelling his Individual score , and
that Is what he is after , to uiako the blgirctl
Then again , so far as the writer 1ms been
able to judge from what ho has soon of theio
hunts , they never fail to create ajanglo
within clubs aud tholr discordant notes nan
bo heard tingling throughout the lontr win
ter , or until the time arrives to begin talking
about another hunt. And this Is not all. As
every member of these two clubs well knows ,
there is nothing fair or equitable about the
mode of conducting thcsa hunts , or annual
slaughtering oxpcditons.whlcu ! would bo n
moro boH ting appellation. While a larger
majority of the participants doubtless re
turn an honest count , there are not a few who
do not. With the latter element it is any
thing to augment his side's score , and as n
consequence they run In Kamo killed days
before the hunt , buy it , hire men
to shoot for them , or got It
in any manner possible just so
it is rncordod to tholr credit. Under these
circumstances , of course , the result is no
test as to the capacity of the respectlvo sides
f s flold shots , nnd the sldo actuallv making
the best score is just as apt to have to defray
the expenses of the supplementary banquet
as the siilo that was honestly defeated.
These are plain , cold facts , well known to
the members of both clubs , nnd can give no
There is no argument necessary. Those
annual club hunts arc pernicious in all tholr
results , nnd It would bo wisdom on tbo part
of each organization to call a halt.
It is a well known fact that Milwaukee has
been endeavoring to break Into the American
association for the past five years , but the
American association bus steadily declined to
allow any such occurrence. Secretary
Qulnn now says :
"Yes , sir , wo will undoubtedly have the
ilrst clunico with the Americans. The man
agement knows just in what consideration
wo hold the American association. As soon
us there Is an opportunity to secure a vacancy
wo have the Ilrst call. 1 have attended all
the meetings of the directors , and I know
their views in regard to Milwaukee. They
will recognize us as the ilrst applicant. Yes ,
I think Milwaukee will bo In the American
association the coming year. "

KINBAB CITV , Mo. , Sept. 20 , 1SS9. Presi
dent McCormiclr , Omaha , Neb. Dear Sir :
As your team will have disbanded by the 151 Ii
of October nnd you will bo unabla to play us
a series at that time , I would ask that you
give mo the use of your park for two games
between Kansas City and the St. Louis
Urowns on Tuesday and Wednesday , Octo
ber and 23. These games are two of n
series of eleven games that Kansas City and
St. Louis arc going to play for tbo cham
pionship of Missouri for $1,000 a sldo , A
reply at your earliest convenience will
greatly oblige. Yours respectfully ,
W. H. WATKINS.

This thing of doubling up games to suit
this and that team manager who is ambitious
to boat some other minuter out of a place ,
is becoming extremely obnoxious to honest
and fair-minded baio ball patrons. Why , in
Sioux Citv the other dav they played no loss
than four games , and Sioux City won them
all. That is simply ridiculous , nnd all
but ono of the eamcs wag very properly
thrown out. Rvon two iratnes of ball ,
especially nt this time of the year is entirely
too much of a good thing , and Is sure to en
tail moro discomfort than pleasure. Even
the most continued crank is apt to get a sur
feit and leave t ho park disgusted. Tlio day a
are too short for two games this late in the
season , and the air too decldonly impreg-
uuntutl with the nipping breath of Jack
Froit. These drawoatks. however , nro not
the chief ones. The unfairness of the prac
tice , and the serious trouble it Is liable to on-
tall upon the associations , Is sufllolout to
warrant legislation upon this head , and it is
sure to couio at the November meetings.

Omaha a portion of last season during P.
O. Connell's lay-off , died Monday last at his
homo in St. Louis of quick consumption.
Jack was quite a well known ball player , a
quiet , gentlemanly fellow , and tlio only sup
port of a widowed mother. The news of his
death was received with much regret by all

Itlnnazer Frank Seloc.
Inasmuch ns Manager Frank Seleo leaves
Omaha this evening and will not return
again until spring , a few words to his credit
will not bo out of place. Ono thing the gen
tleman has demonstrated to the satisfaction
of a great majority of the lovers of the na
tional game , is that ho knows bow to mauago
a base ball team as completely as any man
In the country. His success In moulding out
of tbo present team the easy champions of
the Western association this season is abun
dant evidence in substantiation of this state
ment. Ho has a policy peculiar to himself ,
nnd leniency and consideration of his men is
its chief feature. Ho is undemonstrative
and not given to roasting or fining players.
His methods are quiet and Inoffensive , and
ho handles his men with the perfection at
tained by the strictest disciplinarian. Every
man in tbo Omaha team has only words of
pralso an d esteem for Solco. They llito him
nnd are ambitious to win bis esteem in re-
turr. . Scleo , too , besides being a most
cfllciont manager both on and olT the flold , is
ono of the best judges of u ball player in the
country. Ho > has made comparatively few
errors in selecting men , and has brought out
many of the stars of the day. The univer
sal dcsiro is to BOO Frank bacn In Omaha
next spring. The base ball publlo have con-
lldenco in his ability to give them ns good
ball ns can bo had in the country , and his
resignation as manager would cause much
regret. However , should Mr. Soloo go elsewhere -

loarno'I ' the secret of the marvelous success
ot the Omaha base ball club. Some months
azo ; a Denver lud , named Willie Ivers ,
climbed to the top of tbo eight-story block
known ns the Railroad building , nnd foil off.
Down , down ho went like a. bundle of old
clothes thrown out of n tenement house
window. Straight down tumbled Willie's
small body until it struck a network of telephone -
phone wires two or throe stories from the
ground. Then It bounded oft the wires and
went thumping down upon the back of a
horse that was passing In the street. A
dozen horrified bystanders rushed out to
pink up Willie's mangled remains. But
Willie wasn't dead. Ho wasn't even badly
hurt only somewhat bruised by his fall of
eight stories. Soon after Willlo's ndvonturo
the Omaha club was in Denver , and , hearing
the story , Manager Soleo at once signed
Willie as a mascot. Willie is still with the
Omaha club , and Is said to win moro games
than nine husky men , J. W. Field has evi
dently been played for a siickor. The Omaha
team never heard of Willie , and take no
