"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 Fuginl" "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. " Chance fern Square Meal , 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 Thanksgiving turkey. The Buzz of the Fnn. Patay Bolivar Tobsuu Is getting up a team u St. Louis to go to Denver for u brief sou- ton , Manager Van Horn , of the Delivers , has etgncd but two men for next season , Scrappy .Jack Messott and Joe Werrlok. Harding , the old St. Joe catcher , who re sponded to the ulckuamo "Jumbo , " is run ning a ropowulk in St. . Louis , Edmund D.

'I'hcrc'a no mistake , Danny Is n promising ball player , anyway. The coining season i * going to ha a tough ono for tlfo hoodlum stripe of players. It is the golden opportunity to got rid of thli cle ment , nnd don't let any ono think that it will be overlooked , Secretary Itrnndt nnd Director Harry Mo- Cornilck will have full charge of the .Otnahii club and team next season. "Undo Dick , " will Just loll back la his easy chair and watch the boys barrel up the sinolcnns. Herman Long , the old Western association player nnd the irrcnt Ucrmnn short-stop , re ceived In the neighborhood of0 an hour , uctual playing tlmo , last season , and ho didn't lump to the brotherhood cith'crpoor fool ! It Is being whispered by the llttlo birds , principally chippies , that Jack Howe will be a member of Brother Dave's Lincoln team next season. That's right Jack , it's about time , row in somewhere , anywhere , Just so you get In. Tim Hurst. Into manager of the Minneap olis team , will bo an applicant for n position upon the National league's stall of umpires. That bo would make n good one. there is little doubt. The only dlfllculty with Tim is his falsetto voice. The Cowboy metropolis is dead certain to evolve a hutch of baseball sensations this winter. All this Indiscriminate ilnttcry being smeared over President Krauthoff nov- tenils something. The Western nssoclatlou must bo argui eyed. Knmsoy Crooks , once a ball player him self , has jast returned from a week's sojourn in St. Paul. Ho says his brother Jaelf Is liner than satin and congratulating himself every day that ho turned a deaf ear to Mark Bald win's seductive song last whiter. Sam Morton has opened up a cigar store in Minneapolis , and Sam knows as well as any body what a nlco box of Garcias makes puffn. However , it wouldn't surprise any one If Sam was seen nt the head of the Omaha management next season. Stranger things have happened. Manager Hanlon of the lamented Plttsburg Brothers , swears , actually swears , that Sec retory Bruncll has Martin Duke'a contract in his inside pocket. Ho also says the club sent Martin $ i 0. The question now nrlscs , what Is Bruncll going to do with iti Proba bly have it stuffed. The Milwaukee club has demonstrated its good sense by ro-cngaging Charlie Cushman to pilot the frisky Brewers through another season. Ho also gets an Increase of salary , nnd In gratitude declares that ho will mnko It eighteen straight from Omahu next season , instead of seventeen. 'Iho report that comes floating in on the breczo from that hyperborean village , Minne apolis , that the sporting editor of TUB HUE wants the management of the Sioux City team next season , is a fairy story that found birth In Dave Howe's sterile brain. Would you give up a salary of 810.000 a year just for the pleasure of following Jakoy Straass and Bobby Black over the country , und being near George Common ? No. of course you wouldn't. ' James Lilllc , In Ills day ono of the most sen sational of right fielders , and regarded as the rival ot Mike Kelly , In the position , died in Kansas City , November Si , ot typhoid fever. Ho had not played ball since the season of 18S7 , when ho was with the Kansas City Western association team. In that yenr ho was married to a young lady of Kansas City who was possessed of considerable means. Ho retired from the baseball field to manage her estate. 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. That's ' all right , Mr. Times , about lookin' forward ; but will she come , think you , in ' 01. The idealistic little homo circjo of Mr. and Mrs. Hen Mulford.Jr. , of East Norwood was broken yesterday by ono of these entirely unexpected visitations of death that como with .stunning swiftness and are entirely un announced until the bereaved ones have nought loft but the precious memory of a llttlo life , that it seems should have been spared ? The victim was "Llttlo Ron , " their first-born , the idol of their hearts a darling boy , with eyes and hair of tender brown , nnd delightfully cute nnd winning ways , whoso disposition seemed to bo made of sun beams woven together. The little fellow- was ill for several days with diphtheria , but there was no reason to- suppose that a fatal termination was promised. Cincinnati Times-Star. Papa Chad wick says : I was very glad to learn of the election ot Mr. Krauthoff , of the Kansas City club , as president of the West- cm association. It would have made a world of difference to the American association bad 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 ern association clubs in securing the services of so able and worthy a gentleman for their president. Talk Among the Amateurs.

As Missouri Valley will not have a team next season it may bo well for some ot the ' n [ hcuom' ! hunters to cast their eyes in that di Ircction.'as : all oi lost season's team uro still in the city. The item in ono of last Sunday's local papers about "Spud's City Champions" is all oosh.

Before the alleged match between McMahon and Soroklchl was consummated , Billy Hawley accepted the lattor's challenge In behalf of Baldwin , through the sumo sourco'tho Jap's dolll reached the public , the columns of Tun BBC. If Matsada wants a good straight match hero's his opportunity. Ho and Mc Mahon can wait , for it is a well known truism that everything comes to "men who wait , and it begins to look as If these worthies want everything.

The indications now are that the number of entrltw , both in the fancy and oa the bench will exceed anything of the kind over booked in the west. It Is gratifying to the lovora of thorough bred fowls , standard dogs and pedigreed pigeons to show all Omaha , whoso citizens are known over the land as progressive pushing and'cuterprUing , has taken so much' interest in tills exposition. It is n most encouraging fact to the poultry industry of the west that more money is be ing paid for thoroughbred stock , and inoro money is being received for thoroughbred Btot-K in the state and in the great volley of the Mississippi today than over before. Fowls nro niovintr. iu stockmen say of homed creatures. Specimens are selling from $25 to $ .23) ) each. As in all other lines of good breeding , rare specimens sell readily , while grades or culls go a-begging on the market for buyers with short money. What Is the rosultl Why , people are anxious to spo a bird that goes quickly ut long money. When people see such forms nna feathers , some ono In the crowd wants it. Ho buys it , breeds it , reproduces Its like , nud thus stimulates an Industry that is third on the list as a resource of the country ( cot ton nnd corn only bringing a greater rev enue ) . But Omaha , assorting herself , through the secretary of the State Poultry associa tion , puts It over. the east la the matter of money awards In , n- manner that is characteristic of. tbo Gate city the city whoso portals open to" tbo grains , and meats , and minerals of the world , and whoso resources are inexhaustible. Never before the years 1839 and 1890 did the brooders of fancy poultry , east or west , witness the payment of large money ore- mhims for successful competition , There is a dignity In mouoy which is a part and parcel of its intrlnsiu worth. The slang phrase puts It that "money talks. " True enough. But wo will go further and say that whether money talks or not , there is n po tency nnd power in the oratory of that silence which prevails while a man Is descending to the southern extremity of his pockets to bring to the surface gold dollars and puts them upon tbo occau of Undo for value re ceived in fine specimens of the feathered world. Wo nil love money ; we love to handle goods that move tbo shlucts toward us. Them is money in poultry , rightly handled , Brains go with all successful effort. In tbo show next week may ho seen dis plays of poultry that will at once tell the visitor ot tlmo , experience , money and labor spent in their production. Those who love the beautiful in nature ( und who docs no',1) ) have n feast before them in this exposition. The public is wont to speak of a man who Is an enthusiast on chickens ns a "chicken crank. " That's all right. "Cranks" move the world , and have since the days of Pythagoras , Edison is a crank , and that crank has turned many a usofu 1 Skillful poultry fanciers were a better phrase , perhaps. Ifoworor thnt may be , the production of thoMufclibrcd fnncy fowls Is nn Industry now reco ulzod by such men as yniidcrbllt , Secretary Uusk. the last "Long John"Ventworth , ex-Prosldent Hayes , Sec- KlnryT,1Jolrt ) WPurniw , the queen of Great Britain nnrt hundreds of other notables. Lot us ifot call ttiis .great Industry n "small business" more. Tfhio to null ihat talk. When a man like 'K\Uk counsels wise con gressional legislation In respect of so great n gourcoof rovenuc ( it ceases to bo "small. " This ho has ifono. When thei tircuR cmnos wo nil pay our llttlo BO cents nnd the clvwn carries It nwny by the thousands nnd wo urb the poorer for his hav ing como nnd gone. But the dog nnd poultry exhibit brings ui entertainment not'only , but whnt llttlo money It costs us to se It stays nt homo.

A , Epenotcr received by express from Boston yesterday , a handsome thoroughbred Irish setter from Major E. L. Franklin of the Boston kennel cluo. , Harry L. Goodman , ono'of the best known bench show judges in the world , now con nected with American Field , Chicago , has been In the city several davs " , the guest of I. W. Miner. Big Baldwin took a llttlo conceit out of the Jap down at the Musco im evening or two since , by putting up the ponderous liSO-pound club with easo. There are some people who think thnt Baldwin could put up the Jap , club nnd nil. The continued warm wouthor has nil but put an end to the wild fowl shooting. Ucoso , however , nro now reported to Imvo again come In along the Platte in goodly numbers , and bettor sport may ba expected for the next two weeks. A now shell , is in tbo market.

The last tlmo William Muldoon was hero lie wns asked : "Did you ever meet n man jou did not feel sure of boatliiKl" nnd ho replied ! "Yes ; Clarence Whistler wns n wonderful man. " Had Whistler taken euro of himself ho might have attained the rank of the greatest athlete - loto the world uvcr saw. Cincinnati Com mercial-Gazette. The exhaustive disquisitions running in the American Field , ostensibly to tench the young Idea how to shoot , nro worth Just so much n column. What the aspiring sportive young American wants Is experience. Pull on your wndcrs , shoulder your gun , nnd take n trip out the Platte or up the Missouri , and see how different It is from shooting ducks nnd KCOSO on paper. Ono day out Is worth seven hundred columns ot the choicest In structions over written. Another thing , two- thirds of the stuff written on hunting and fishing , Is from the pens of men who don't know n prairie chicken from n gllluguloo bird , or a wild goose from a "thunder pump.

Robert Morris of New York says : " 'Sport ing' has the call nt present among our people , nhd nearly every lady and gentleman of the rising generation in this community is In terested hi It ns much if not more than In politics. " Mr. Morris refers to the 'TO's ' , when there vrero but three sporting editors in Now York , Uncle Joe Elliott of the Herald , . "Topp" Mngulro of the Sun , nnd Mr. Crlck- inoro of the World. They devoted their efforts principally to horse racing and prize lighting. Now every dally paper in the metropolis has its corps of sporting writers , nnd the Sun and World have a small army of specialists who nro under John II. Muudlgo mid Gcorgo H. Dickinson resi > ectively. Arrangements nro being made for n shoot ing match which , from a pecuniary stand point , will totally eclipse anything in the history of oueh.contests. The principals in the project ore Champion of America J. It Elliott of ICnnsas City nnd Charles MncAlllstcr of Philadelphia , MacAlltstor has the record of having shot for the largest purse ever com peted for by shooters. The contest was lost spring with Dr. Knnpp of New York , nnd over $75,000 changed hands on the result. Knnpp was defeated. It Is estimated that if the proposed contest takes phico at least $250,000 will bo wagered. The two contest ants will each put tip $20,000. The proposed match will probably take wlaco nt Philadel phia some time m the spring. ( Questions and AiiMVOrs.
