"Tit Willis Is the only man we Imvo signed
PO far , " said Unrry McCormlck liwt ovcnlnff ,
"and wlint's more ho Is the only man wo In
tend to SK ! for some tlrao to come. There's
Jio hurry. "
'Hut you Intend to strengthen the team ,
don't you ! "
"Of course wo do. Wo have thirteen good
men on our reserve list now , but the proba
bilities are that several of them are not good
enough , and will Imvo to bo lot out But us I
remarked before , there's no hurry. Tl'o '
Brotherhood Hunk has filled the mur-
Jcot with peed material , and the West
ern association Is going to get the
pick nt pretty near Its own price. I think
the day of absurd salaries Is over , and that's
u glorious good thing for the game , too. It
Vould bo anything but.tho fnlr thing for the
league to lut any man out who stood by them
111 rotm-h Iho rocky days of lust season , and
ivhe put up anything like the work required ,
bf him , to make room for seine brotherhood
deserter , and they will not do It cither. Is
thcro a National Icnguo club in the country
"who would release an honest and competent
player for a man like PIckett , Joe Mulvcy or
JiiKJiiUolIcekloyl I hope not , any way. So
you see there Is going to bo a llttlo army
of ball players who will bo plud to get a Job ,
1 nnd the glnddcst of all of those should bo the
precious trio I just mentioned. "
' Has any of your men tried to burl the harpoon
peen vet , that Is , your reserved men I1'
"What , advance money , you moan ! Well ,
yes , wo'vo received several Invitations to for
ward u slice , but vo hiwcn't advanced n sou.
nnd do not Intend to. The Improvident ball
player must bo Content with snowballs
this winter ; for he'll get but few
nUvanco cart-wheels from any source. That
Is another disagreeable feature of the busi
ness done away with , for the coming season
t least. "
"Anil our prospects this coming- year ! "
"They ought to bo llrst-class considering
the healthy feeling of security that has been
restored by the defeat of prohibition , and the
pcncral activity that Is noticeable In all
branches of trade. But you can't tell ; base
ball Is us uncertain as the wind. It may catch
on with a tremendous boom next spring , nnd
ugaln. may not. The Interest In the game
liail all but petered last season , and it may re
quire tlmo to coax it back. The business men ,
of Omaha , even these realty fond of thesport
do not lend tho'ald and encouragement to the
game that they should. They iiro all equally
interested , and should not expect , ono or two
or three men carry on such an uncertain ven
ture alone nnd unassisted. The city gets un
equalled advertisement through her baseball
team , and what the city gets certainly tends
to the betterment of her trade , and the busi
ness men should clvo us every encourage
I ment within their power. If they will but
do this , we'll clvo them a team that will give
them all the dust. "
Omaha's Twirling Quartette.
"Tho Omaha team will not bo so bad off for
pitchers 'next season as most people seem to
think , " remarked ox-President Dick last
evening ; "Tho brotherhood buot-up gives us
Knell again , and with Clark , ICncll , Fagln
nnd Willl1 } , I think we'll como pretty near
holdlnp our own. "
"Then you ore coulldcnt of getting Knell
back ? "
'Of course I nm. Didn't wo buy him In
83 of St. Joe , nnd didn't wo reserve him at
the end of the season I Well I guess yes. So
you see ho Is ours. Ho jumped to the broth
erhood lost spring , and of court > o wo had no
redress nnd wcro compelled to let him RO. Ho
pitched wonderful ball for the Philadelphia
brothers during the past season , nnd I think
ho Is ono of the greatest twlrlers in the coun
try. Ho need fear no unjust treatment
nt our hands for deserting
us , for ho only followed the cxumplo of older
und more experienced heads , and wo uro too
well satisfied to get him back. "
"Hnvo you heard anything from Knell
yet ! "
"No. But Milwaukee Is evidently aware
of how the land lays , and Is negotiating with
him ; but It , will do them no good. Mr.
Philip Knell must make up his mind to play
In Omaha next season or not pluy at all.
Milwaukee offers us big Morrisboy and
small monetary consideration In exchange
for the young man , but wo have declined
with thuuks. "
"And you also Intend to kcop Count
"That depends. If wo can dispose of him
advantageously , of course wu shall do so ;
but for the present ho will remain on our re-
aervo list. "
GoiiiK to Join the Hand.
"What do you think of the Western asso
ciation's chances of becoming a party to the
National agreement ! " was asked of Secretary
Brandt an evenlnjcor two since.
"Gpod. The board of arbitration meets In
December nnd President Krauthoft will bo on
Band to moke an effort to have this associa
tion granted representation on the board , and
nnd that it become a party of the first part
to the National agreement. That is
certainly our right. Wo ore as
much a major league as any
in existence : our bull the past sou-
son was equal to that furnished either by the
Icnguo or brotherhood , and superior to that of
the American association ; wo hav6 a circuit
of 'tho liveliest and most enterprising cities in
the country , Just as able and intelligent men
'in the control of our affairs , 'nutl intend here
after to assert ourselves. "
' 'That Is something Tun BCK has hiu-pcxl
upon for three years or more. "
"Yes , I know that , but the tlrao for real
action lu this matter has Just arrived. "
"And you think President Krauthoft will
succeed in his inUsionl"
"Yes , I do. I have been Informed that all
the National league clubs nro favorable to
this recognition , excepting Cleveland , and It
isn't very likely that the tall is Rolng to wag
the dog Iti this instance. "
"So then the Western association Is going
to besomo pumklns at lost ! "
"You bet , wo are going to Join the band. "

To the Baseball Editor : In an Horn In last
Sunday's edition of the World-Herald np-
poarcd a paragraph from a disinterested par
ty , asserting that the Crane company had no
right to claim the local championship as their
Victories were mostly from out of town clubs.
I bavo this much to say to the disinterested
compiler of baseball averages , that ho has us
down as losing two games to the City Steams.
Correct. Onogainoout of thrco to the Non
pareils. Wrong , Wo only mot the Nonpa
reils twlco last season , and each club scored
R victory. Ono gome that wo lost to the City
Steams , Andy Cuslck , the umpire , admitted
that had ho given it the second thought ho
would Imvo given the decision In our favor ,
which would have given us the game. Now
if the aforesaid compiler is so disinterested as
to keep a record for the season perhaps ho
would like to bank some of his earnings ( not
from dlslntercstlng baseball compiling ) on the
Nonpareils at the opening of next season. If
ho will , U will be the llrst ono that wo have
found to init up mouoy enough to make It an
object to play for. If anyone will produce n
team that bos hold up the fame for which
Omaha amateurs uro noted , any where near
the manner lu which wo did last season , only
losing to ono club , the City Ktoams , produce
It and call at Crane company's nnd got n

The fight to pull down this great sport has
been long and llorco , but the battle is won nt
last. The old ling of the national agreement
will continue to wave over the scores of pro
fessional fields in 1801. The Brotherhood and
Players' league are virtually things of the
past. To use a street phrase , "it Is all over
but the hollering. " Aud thcro must bo no
time lost in "hollering. " The disastrous
season just ended can bury itself. Let us all
look to 1801 nnd help replace the game where
it was at the close of 18S9. Editor Cnylor.

Papa Chad wick says : I was very glad to

Mr , Krauthoft been elected successor to Mr.
Wikoff In 1889. In that cose the "combine"
could not hnvobeen successful and the
Brooklyn club would not have been driven to
resign from the association as it was by the
policy of the "combine. " By the way , how
creditably the Western association stands
out this season as the exceptionally success
ful organization of the professional fraternity
for 18'JO. I heartily congratulate the West

There is a dignity In mouoy which is a part

whether money talks or not , there is n po

commenced to use pneumatic tires ho was

There can bo no donbt that the ladles blcy-

the idea of a woman riding around ou two

finally made u bicycle with two wheels of ex

nearer the ground than on the man's bicycle.
The Idea was perfected nnd the modern
