llio base ball championship came to an end
on the local grounds yesterday afternoon
with a rather bum game between Omaha
nnu DCS Molncs.
About three thousand spectators witnessed
the battle , which was won by Omaha after a
long drawn out nnd spiritless struggle.
The bleachers hod moro fun than anybody ,
nnd from the opening to the close they did
llttlo hutveil and hoot nnd guy the players ,
both sides coming In for about an equal
ftliaro of their attention.
Wahdoll , the man with the largest lungs
on earth , was in his reserved seat Just back
of the reporters' pow , and kept the autumnal
atmosphere vibrating with dissonant vocifer
Many of the spectators drew a long sigh of
relief when the contest was over , and \Van-
del gave ono lost , despairing screech ana ran
across tbo lleld nnd climbed into his $4
They were overjoyed to get rid of the old
Clarlto nnd Mcssitt were In the points for
Omaha , but neither distinguished himself.
Dad pitched an indifferent guino , and as a
consequence- basted hard.
Bart aid the rotating for the Hawkoyes ,
nnd it was biff I bang ! smash 1 from the
moment Docechor yelled "play fialll" until
the last man wont out.
But to describe the game by innings would
bo a usfllcas waste of n couple of cents worth
of lead pencil , nnd the gentle reader will have
* to rest content with the information they can
get out of the score.
It might bo well , however , to state that the
i DCS Molncs team , played like n lot of do-
crupid old women , nnd they ought to go
liomc , split up their bats into kindling wood ,
onJ go back on the farm ,

I'roBjincts Kor Next Year.
Omaha ball patrons can rest content that
the Gate City will bo represented next sea
son by a good strong team. All the present
players will bo reserved and none of them
sold , with possibly the exception of Clarke ,
as the inanagomcnt.hos concluded that it will
bo moro to them in the long run to keci > the
present team intact. Several now faces ,
though ; wlll'surely ' bo soon hero next year ,
and the regular team selected from the men
s gncd. Those showing up best in prelimi
nary spring practice will constitute the regu
lar playing force. Another thing TIIE UEB
Is enabled to assure the lovers of the game is
that now grounds will surely bo secnred lor
next Benson. It would ho a breach of contl-
denco to divulge their location , but it can bo
said that they are not quite half as far
from the postofllco corner as the present
park , and most admirably situated
as to transportation facilities. The di
mensions of the new grounds will ba 375x
825 , a trlflo small , yet still ns commodious as
many that are being used In the country.
Handsome now stands will bo built , and nil
the accessories of an improved character.
This , It Is hoped , will tend to increase the at
tendance and enable Omaha to indulge in
the hope of getting Into ono of the larger as
sociations at no distant day in the future.

Ornatin's Crack flattery.
Kansas City's claim that she will have

next season is an idle one. Nichols will bo

DBS MOINKS , Sept. 23. [ Special to Tnn
BEB. | The "go-ns-you-plea o" ticket nomi
nated by tbo democrats at Sioux City this
wcotc already begins to show signs of dis
integration and It IB donbttul If it can hold
together until they moot tholr "Waterloo"
The bourbons seemed to have become
somewhat weary of tholr railroad allies and
gave the cold shoulder to several corporation
cappers who aspired for places on the ticket.
Boles , the candidate for governor , however ,
is a tnlak-and-thln railroad lawyer nnd hulls
from ono of the ntrongost corporation centers -
tors in the state. The railroads tmvo made
Waterloo what It is , and no candldato from
that town could bo expected to develop any
positive opposition to the wishci of his uono-
faotors. The democratic farmers who belong -
long to the alliance will swallow Boloi with
n wry fnoo , and some of them nro likely to
kick clear ever the traces and vote for
Bestow , tlio candidate for lieutenant gov
ernor , Is much moro acceptable to the farm
ers , ho having already , as a member of the
state senate , nindo something of n record as
Judge Brnnnnn may poll his party vote , but
being pitted nnainst so popular a cnndidato
us Judge Given ho can not hope to make any
alarming inroads into the republican col
David Morgan , the democratic canuldato
for railroad commissioner. Is an anomaly.
Ho is a Quaker and , it Is said , is ulso n
radical prohibitionist. Justhawnnd through
what influence ho was led Into the demo
cratic fold Is not known , but It Is suspected
that ho is only a democrat by brevet ,
and if the truth were known ,
ho is only a little sour ever some local mat
ter and Is only willing to stay In the demo
cratic party so long as ho has sonic assurance
of securing an office. His neighbors all
agree in saying that ho is an excellent man
nnd a true-bluo anti-monopolist , and if this is
the case he will retire from the ticket anil
move to make the election of Spencer Smith
unanimous. Wells and Liund and tlio rail
road combine- proved a disastrous failure last
year , and only served to run up a majority of
00,000 for the republican ticket.
Ttiis year the democrats have gone to the
other extreme nnd the result will likely bo
the same. The republicans are quito well
satisfied with Sprnccr Smith , and his
majority of lust year will not be mate
rially reduced , even should both the demo
cratic and union labor candidates remain in
the field. The moss back democrats , so far
as heard from , do not take kindly to the
ticket. All three of the leading candidates
were republicans during the war , and "war
issues" have not been entirely forgotten by
the average bourbon. To vote for three
"black" republicans , even though running
on the democratic ticket will bo moro crow
than they can swallow without a special
effort , and they are not likely to enthuse
very easily as the campaign progresses.
The license plank , wbiuh was finally
adopted , is very acceptable to the "slough
water" districts , but is gall and wormwood
to the river counties. The local option fea
ture is very repulsive , and the minimum fee
of $500 is too high in the estimation of the
enterprising bootlegger of Dubuque or Dav
enport. The average democrat of the river
counties , where prohibition is not enforced ,
prefers the present policy to a strict license
law ns contemplated In the resolutions
passed bv the stuto convention.
The effort to make a breach between the
Farmers' alliance and the republican nomi
nees for governor and lieutenant governor
bos fallen flat. Both Hutchison and Poy-
nocr have defined their position on the rail
road question and both endorse the position
taken by tbo recent state mooting of the alli
ance. The alliance only asked that tbo pres
ent law bo maintained and strengthened by
giving the commission power to make joint
rales over two or more connecting lines , nnd
this will undoubtedly bo done. It looks now
as if the campaign would bo devoid of any
special interest. REX.
