Itosv Outlook for Omnlin.
"Well , the managers of the Omaha 'club
are showing algns of llfo at last , aren't they I"
observed an old enthusiast last evening.
"Wo had begun to think that It was going to
bo the old story over again next season , that
they were going to try to palm off a lot of
hnms lor bail-players nnd trust to luck. Their
determination to have Knoll returned here ,
however , nnd the fuel that they nro negotiat
ing with Danny Shannon , with fair prospects
of securing him , gives the outlook a much
more encouraging nnd satisfactory , coloring.
.With . Knell and Clarke and Kitcljorg Omaha
will huvo a very superior trio of twlrlers ,
butter in fact than any cub ) in tiio Western
association can boast. Knell Is nuqueniona-
bly ono of the strongest men in the box there
is in the profession today , while Clarke , with
n harmonious team and good support , will
rank much higher up the scale than ho over
has before. As for Eitcljorg , niAny of the
best judges pronounce him the equal of any
young pitcher in tbo land , ntut expect great
things of him next season. Nvhy look
at Itlilnes of tno Clnclnnatls , Ruslo of the
Now Yorks nnd Luby of the Cblcagos , They
wcro all unknown n year ago , were taken
from minor leagues und yor. established a
reputation In a single season equal to that
of the Clarksous , the Kccfes nr any of the
rest of the old stars. AVhy not Eitcljorg , ho
is young , strong and ambitious and in every
way worthy I t > o you see It looks very flat
tering lor Omnha so far as her plthers go.
"Tho management are deserving of much
additional credit for their commendable
efforts to cngnco Danny Shannon , Omaha's
old captain and second basomuu. It Is doubt
ful If there over was n player hero more
popular than Shannon , und ho was reaUy the
'only competent field captain the Omaha team
overbad. Besides his superb qualifications
In this line , ho was a hardworking player ,
always Interested In tha team , and took de
feat like a personal misfortune. Yes , if
President McCormlck nnd Secretary Brandt
continue lu their endeavors to secure a few
such men as Shannon they will receive such
encouragement next year as they 'have never
dreamed of , For ono , I think IbVU is going to
be the banner epoch in the history of our na
tional game. "
Tlio Club'H Hcupiulicr Card.
The South Omaha athletic club will prob-
a H
ably have two attractions to present for the
month of December. The flrst will bo the
bantam light between Danny Daly of Ban-
gor. Me. , and Tommy White , the pot of the
Cliicago board of trudo , next Saturday night ,
for a purse of $500. This will doubtless boone
ono of the most interesting pugilistic events
over witnessed In this vicinity , ns the two
mon nro verv evenly matched and a brace of
ns dead game nnd skillful little ones as are to
bo found In the whole country. They have
both boon in training near South Omaha for
the past two weeks und are reported to bo in
the llnest- possible fighting llg. Daly will
have a largo following from this city , while
n car full of sports , or a car of full sports ,
Just ns you will have it , will bo hero from
Chicago to put uy the stuff on White. At
any event U will bo a rattling good mill , en
tirely dissimilar from the late Allon-Moonoy
unpleasantness , which , despite every pre
caution taken by the club was the rawest ,
rankest kind of a fuko.
The second event 'will bo a meeting , it Is
likely , between Jack Davis , the
local heavy weight , and Pat
Allen of St. Louis , Mo. , who was
behind his namesake in the light of Tuesday
last. This is not yet n certainty , there being
some hitch ns tothosizoof the purse to bo
hung up. The ? 5X ( ) proposed by the club ,
however , is all Bufllcient , for Judging from
nppoaranccs the St. Louis man wouldn't bo
in It with n go with Davis.
The Pat Sheohoy-Davls match has failed
thus far , to materialize , but should a $200 for
feit bo forthcoming within the next ten days
from the St. Paul man , it is likely that it
will bo consummated.
What John T. Can Do.
Ind. , Nov. 20. [ Special to
Tun BEE.John T. Brush , who owns the
National league franchise for this city , says
that if Indianapolis has a ball club next sea
son it will bo in the Western association.
This city , ho says , can easily get into the asso
ciation , which will play under the national
agreement next year. Ho thlnus the associ
ation will bo mnuo up of Detroit , Toledo , In-
dlannpolls , Milwaukee , St. Paul , Minneapolis ,
Kansas City and Omaha.
[ Tohn T. only thinks ho can got In hero ,
that's all , for ho cannot. Denver. Sioux
City and Lincoln are all in good standing ,
and neither can bo crowded out. If Mr.
Brush is correct in his assertion that bo can
got In the western ho probably moans that ho
can purchase ono of the above named fran
chises. Sporting1 Editor BEK.J
