The People's ' Clothing House OUR LOSS IS YOUR GAIN The People's ' Clothing House
1303 DOUGLAS STREET. 1303
For the first time since the existence of the People's Clothing House , 1303 Douglas Street , they hd 'e made miscalculations. We announced through these columns last week , that \vc had closed out the assignee's
Bankrupt Stock of Clothing , Furnishing Goods , Hats , Caps. Trunks , Valises and Shoes , also the entire Piqduct ; of an exclusive Overcoat Manafactury. Now the matter stands thus : When we purchased all these goods , wo
already had our entire Fall and Winter Stock bought , but this was too much of a Snap to let slip , and as wc'bccupy a three story Building we expected to find ample room for all these Goods. This was one of our miscalculations. | ,
AltlKHtgh we did an excellent business last week we find our shelves and counters too crowded to handle tlic goods comfortably. Our second miscalculation is that we let the Prophecies of the Weather Prophets , predicting an i
early and extreme cold winter get away with our better judgement. Although it is early as yet in the , season and may yet get coldwe , arc tired of waiting for the same and in order to be on the safe side we wi 11 sell , at prices fi
which will paralyze the Clothing Trade in tlic City of Omaha. To miss this is missing a chance of a Life Time. We will only add , that some goods we sold so cheap last weelc , that we possibly can't ' make a reduction as we
could sell them in bulk to other dealers for more money. Jt costs you nothing to examine these goods , and if you find that we don't do just as we advertise , we don't ask you to buy , as one of our mottos which we strictly live
up to is "NO TROUBLE TO SHOW GOODS. "

Ted Sullivan , who camu to Ouialia a couple -
plo of UTclm ago to buy u pitcher or two , was
authorized by the Cincinnati iimnuL'omont to
give I'rcsmoDt McCormlck a cheek for ? 3IM)0 , )
for "Kid" Nichols , payable on October ! il.
This precaution was taken by Cincinnati bo-
caus ? a contract entered into with a player
before that day would DU illegal. Ttiero was
olio another provision mentioned by Cincin
nati and that was to the effect , that the check
was not to bo cashed uutll Nichols had imula
terms with the PorUonoIis iniuiugemi'
Sullivan failed to fulllil the Instructions of
lusomploynra , but instead gi\vo MeConniclc
u sight check , which hu sent In with hl
usual promptitude forcollcction. Cincinnati
refused to honor it IIH tlio.y hud boon nimble
to tnngotiato with Nichols. When McCor-
inIck tvas notlllcd bv the bank that the check
would not bo paid , ho Immediately tolo-
Rraphod to Cincinnati that the deal wno off.
Cincinnati now alleges that Omlmvis BUD-
sequontly offered u blgi-or price for the Kid ,
untl they purposely limit him out of the way.

the rules was nuirgcstod the other evening to
Captain Comiskey by n well-known Omnhi
nuiUHomont man , and it so favorably struct
the great baao uall ( renoral that he made n
note of it , utth tbo declaration that ho wouh
uco ttint uch a rulu was embodied in the
Amorlc-au association coda at it * coining
"Why1 said Comisky , "it was the absence -
sonco of just such an iiujmrutlvo rule as tins
that occasioned all our trouble fu UrooUl.vn
uud the wonder Is that it lias not boon SUR-
geftted by BOIIIO one long since. In llrooklyi

when every other umpire m the country wa

The reason for this wai that in casa the

Yes , you can go uroko that the American as-
ociation noxtjcar will have a regular pre-
cribcil tune for calling her games. "
CumUkey on the BrotliRrlinnil.
a ho brotherhood scheino is still in the
liadow , but tuero Is no cessation in the
peculation us to thu outcome , and it really
icgins to look as there \vns not quite HO much j
'alto and bluff about it as many wisoacrcs at
In a coiivorsutlou with' Captain Churlia
3omibkey , the greatest b.iso ball general in
he profession , last Wednesday evening , in
ho presence of a number of co ngcnlal
spirits , ho inquired of tuo writer , who has
jecn one. of the many wtio took no stock m
the alleged consplracy.or its successful issue
at least , what ho thought of the scheme.
"Think the whole thing is a huge bugaboo
it will all end in bluff , " was the reply.
"Well you were never more mistaken in
vour life , " continued Comnicy with warmth ,
'I tell you it is as sure a go as death or
taxes. Even should the league condescend
nt this tlmo to uialco the concessions long do-
nandod by the players , it cannot prove abor-
ivo. The players are bound to go ahead
they 11 ro nil signed , and thcru is no backing
out. The cities that will have brotherhood
teams have all been correctly named
md more than suflluient funds to oparato the
clubs has been pledged. Don't you deluda
yourself any longer. I know what I am
talking about , and in Mny next you will BCD
the brotherhood Bturt oft in the full llusli of
what , will bo a successful antoruriso "
"With all duo deference to your knowl
edge and enthusiasm , captain , " retorted the
scribe , " I can't help but think that it will bo
a ilnsh in the pau remember thu old Union
association and its fate ! "
"Uahl" interrupted the Napoleon of the
diamond , "tho two projects have no
similarity with each other that was it
case of cue man endeavoring to ac
complish uhat the hone and sinew
and muscle- and brains of thu whola base
ball Htructuro intends to perform. You pre
pare yonrnclf foru big surprise , for I tell you
It is coining. "
" \Voll \ , you haven't signed a brotherhood
contract , have you ? "
"I um In the American association and I
don't havu to. Wo arc not in the light UH
yet , " and Comuiey's "as yet'1 had a good
deal of covert Rlgiiillcanoo In It.
After n little further couvnrsatlon , ami
observing that his declarations had not car
ried the weight to which ho considered them
entitled , Comiskoy said :
"Now I'll ' toll you what I'll 110 I don't
want to inulce nuy bet but if , tbo brother
hood schema doesn't pan out Just as I have
told you , you co to your lending tullor and
order the llnest suit of clothes ho can make
uiKl send mo the bill. Will you do tlmU"
Then a few moro were blown off , and
hinting that bo would like to see the Coun
cil UlulTs bridge , the party went down to
look ut it.
At the coming annual mooting of the
National league and American association ,
it is proposud to dovoio ono day to a confer
ence with the representatives of the minor
leagues , which is all very charitable upon
the purt of the omnipotent magnates of the
major bodies ; but what will It all amount
to ) Nothing uioro uor less than an augmen
tation of Uio uujunt rights and powers of
thcso older bodies , In some shape or otherund
razeeing of the prerogatives the lessor or-
gunlzutioiia Imagine- they onjoy. It is simply
a bluff Uv the louguo and American associa
tion at the minor bodies , to uiaku thorn bo-
llovo that they nro working for the good of
tlu whole and their fostering care Is to bo us
liberally bestowed upon the weaker combina
tions as upon themselves. It would bo amus
ing to listen to the iiuislo of the chins of the
minor loacuo representatives at u meeting of
the National league. They will bo nothing
moro nr loss than a row of wall-flowers. Bo
fur in the history of base ball u minor asso
ciation has yet got to suggest its first move
In the Interests of the great sport that will
bo adopted by the moguls of the older bodies.
A Jluo article of justice the minor bodies got
for being allowed to pay hundreds and thous
ands of dollars to huddle together under tbo
safeguard of the wings of the wonderful na
tional ugreotnent. However , tbw condition
of affairs is simply because thcso minor
bodies have never yet developed n man who
dare say his soul is his own. Quasi base ball
magnates aru thcso minor lenguo owners
and supporters , without snnp enough
to conceive anything good Tor themselves , or
even to assort their rights. Bui the tlmo is
drawing on apace whou thera will bo a
change. The ISrothcrhood-Leaguo cmbrogllo
must certainly revolutionize base ball af
fairs very largely , and the popularity of tbo
sport i.s menaced with considerable danger.
Sootier or later the minor leagues must rjsu
up In their might and formulate their own
cede , make their own protective rules und
regulations , or the. avaricious anil voracious
major organisations will swallow tlicm up
body and soul. It is the apogaa of injustice
for thcso arrogant and dictatorial bodies to
levy this species of blackmail upon the
weaker , younger struggling organisations.
To whom does the league and association
pay bounty for the privilege to live ?
Solid For MaCormiolc.
Tnn Ucu's paragraph concerning the re
election of J. 8. McCormlck as president of
the Western association lias elicited the
warmest corroborative comment from the
press of all the cities in this circuit suvo
Milwaukee , who lire tends to bcliovo that
McCormick and Sum Morton nro in collusion
with each other to run western base ball
uffrtlra with the single view of their own
emolument. Milwaukee. Imivovcr , is dis
gruntled over her own failure in hogging the
persimmons in the way of loading oIllciulR ,
meetings , committees , etc. , nud through
her sore-headed secretary , one Quln , takes
this method , of venting her spleen. The con
sensus of opinion of the Western associa
tion , it is pleasing tn note , is that McCor-
inick's c'jiuil is not available , and it is
predicted hero that ho will go through u.y

illustrious trio will play next vcar in Chicago

NiniitASicv Cirv , Oct. 20 To the Sporting
Editor of Tun I3ni : : I notice a short article
in .vour Sunday edition regarding tho'
proposition to tax guns , in which it in evi
dent you aru in favor of such taxation. Being
decidedly a lover of sports in the Hold as well
as shooting ut tbo trap , though not nn export
at either , it has boon with great regret that
I have been compelled to watch the wanton
destruction of our beautiful game birds on
the pralrins of our own aim neighboring
states , as well au tbo fearful destruction
that is ut this very tlmo going on to an iiliirm-
lug extent on the hills and valleys of western
Nebraska , \ . : nud Montana , of the
few remaining untolopu , as well us deer and
elk , which uro rapidly growing fewer and
fewer. No man , not to say sportsman , with
a particle of manhood and Immunity , but
deeply deplores this state of affairs , und I
ngreu with you , that there U not a season tube
bo lost , nor a day In fact , in taking such
measures as will put a stop to It. Buthowi
If you will reflect u llttlo I believe you will
give up the gun tax Idea as not only Imprac
ticable but absurd. Does any ono suppose
for an Instant that It would bo productive of
the good desired , or prevent tha killing of a
single gauia bird or animal ) No , for reasons
Innuir.oriit'le. The pot hunter you speak of
would only bo obliged to murtfet moro game
in order to meet his correspondingly
greater expense in the form of tax , Then
again the pot hunter is not the man that
owns the high priced gun. HUeun may bit
Is nn old muzzle-loading shotgun that cost
him not over f 10 or 115 und very likely an old
army musket which can bo bought any place
for f-J. ilow can you place tax high enough
on those cheap guns to prevent his owning
ono ) and I assure you I am statlug the abso
lute facts In the ceso. If you do tax his gun ,
how can you urovent Ills borrowing his neigh
bor's gun and doing the same thlngl Then if
you do tax his cheap gun so high bo can't
afford to own It you must tax tbo high priced
gun owned by gentlemen sportsmen , which
has never tasted the blood of game , corre
spondingly high , ar.d how would you ilko
tum yourself , presuming thai you nro a man
that enjoys a little shoot at glass balls or
blue rjcks ? No , sir ; thcra is only ono way
to bring about tho'desired rosnlt and that is
the enactment of severe laws , where such do
not already exist , and the enforcement of
them , ana to enforce them game wardens
should bo employed , say four of them for
the state of Nebraska , and they should be
paid , and paid well , for their services bv the
state. They should bo men who -votild do
their duty rcn'ardlpss of friendship or favor ,
ntul the good resulting for the faithful dis
charge ot their duties would make the bur
den of their expanse to the stuto seem very
light iuaeed. ANTinrxTXX.
