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.

The probable composition ot tbo Western association for next year will bo Oinahn , St. Piiul , Minneapolis , Milwaukee , Sioux City , Denver , Detroit , and Toledo. DulutU and Osuuosli uro .both very desirous of pos' ricsslng franchises in this iissoclntion , but It 2s not probiblo that either will bo quuliflcd.

However , it is Idle 10 talk about ttioso cities , as they Rtniut no show wliatovor to got Into thu Western association. Detroit and Toledo uro both supremely disgusted with the Intorimtionul. as they have lost money , uiul seem to thlnlc that annexation with thu Western association is all that is V necessary tu 1111 their coffers with the coin VK of the realm. That the acquisition would ho a welcouio oiic.un one will i'alii3u.vus it would K make one of thu best base ball eitcults in the It couutry , burring tbo IOIIR jumi ) from Toledo to Denver. It may bo posslblo that the lot' ter city will Uo dropped , and uilothor ( jood city looked up to taku lior place , but hi any event thosti chiefly interested will spare no pains to effect a solid circuit for next year , irrespective of old tics ana associations. TlitKtoiy ol'tlio Nicliols Dral. 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. An Oinntin Mnu Humrostoil In Another uiattnr that will doubtless receive- uUcntloii itt tiio couiliiK annual meetings of tuo IcnKiio nud American association nest month U tlxliiK a regular tmio for callhiK the Kiiiuo in the sprinu' , mid-summer and fal ! months. This very dcsir.Uilo ameadmcnt to 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 mooting. "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 they had things ilxed to boat us at all haz Eards. They had their umpire , this uuiii Onffne.v , und ho called the panic at-I o'clock when every other umpire m the country wa either railing thu guinea at 3 or UUO : The reason for this wai that in casa the lirookl.viis wera in the lead ut the end of the llftti or sintb or seventh inning , und there wu any tiretcst for It under heavens , ho called ( hu uuuiu oh account of darkness aad thus eave it to Hrooklyu ; but if they \\cro tchind , would Uitvc compelled us to nlny the game to a ilnish if it got so dark a nuui louldn't ' borecoenlzcd from base to base. 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 Irst thought. 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" "Sure. " 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. Inviting Ilia 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 acclamation. An Ubiiiuiiciiit ) Trio. It is amusing to read of the many different clubs which tiavo bought Nichols , Cooney mid Nagle. As the papers now tmva It , this illustrious trio will play next vcar in Chicago cage , Cincinnati. I'ittsburg , Kansas City und Brooklyn. Thu fact is , however , that all tlireu of these men still belong to Omahai Thinks It Wont fo. 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.

The Boston Herald says thatE. O , Brandt , secretary of the Omaha baeo ball club , thinks Clarke every bit us good a pitcher us Nichols. Brandt , however , thinks nothing of the sort. The Minneapolis club's ground is about the smallest m thu country , und , consequently , balls go over the feuce that should bu easy outs , The Holder * stand close to the fence , and nigh wire sccens keep llnura from bailing oyor.

On a nice , sunny day ono may still see a number of riders on this boule vard , but the majority are now thinking about putting vaseline on the iiickol-platliig of their machines. There has been 'considerable talk about renting a large ilat for the Omaha wheel club rooms , furnishing it .throughout , and making the club a social one , as well as u bicycle club. The idea is good , and ough to bo en couraged. 'tho present quarters are cer tainly too cramped , and many of the boys have been clamoring for a billiard table and a library. As n social club , many mem bers could ho admitted that are not bicy clists , but who have been uudor the impres sion that only wheelman could belong to this organization , Every morning before dawn two tall und silent wheelmen can bo scon mounting their machines at the club room , and wending their way * towards the south.

The condi tions of thu shoot in question were twenty singles and ilvo pairs of doubles , Ilvo birds , und Parmcleo won. of course , making a total score of 20. llo missed tils twentieth single bird , but scored his doubles clean. Whou it came to settling up the spoils , tiie captain of the Kansas City team informed Parmoleo that some of the club members kicked against paving him the Hwccpstnkex money , which amounted to $72 , and which Parmcioo hud honestly and clearly won.
