Brain to Tin : BEI : . ] The old adage , "a good
beginning makes n nad ending" was Illus
trated by the Omaha visitors. Poorman
opened the game with a forking throo-
bnggor , and thenceforth candor compels the
admission that the White Socks were not
in It.
In the third Inning the Corn Iluskora fell
upon Mr. Baker and pounded him unmerci
fully. Towards the close of the uamo ho re
covered his speed somewhat , but II wns too
Into. On thu other hand Bill Hart was un
usually effective for the Hnskers , nnd
pitched ono of his host games during the
But the score hardlv does justice to the
work of the visitors , "heir Holding was
good nnd at many points very stmrp , but
with Baker's weakness In tbo box It was use-
loss. Their only score was made In tbo third
Inning. Dugdnlo got n base on bulls , ad
vanced on linker's hit , took third on a wild
pitch , but went out nt thu plate while Baker
was getting to third base. Baker acored on
Poormnn's hit. Trnllloy's hit advanced
Poorman to second , nnd tie took third on
Flanagan's fly out , but died there , ns Dungan
Hew out.
This closed the scoring of the visitors , but
they had hard luck. For example , In the
second inning , after Dugdalo bad made a hit
and advanced to second base on McClcllan's
sacrifice , bo was caught by a hair's breadth
in getting to third base. A moment later
Walsh knocked out n magnificent three-bag
ger , \Vhitehead ( lew out.
The Corn Hnskers played ono of their best
games and uept tin the lively gnittlioy stnick
two weeks ago. It would bo useless lode-
tall their points. They simply took advan

better game. , The grand stand was crowded ,
but for some peculiar reason tbo plaudits for
the Burllngtons wcra tame In commirison
with these bestowed upon the Nonparlcls.

gave the visitors ono run. tying the scoro.
He subsequently , redeemed himselt however
by his homo run In the sixth. Each of the
three errors made by tno Burllngtons fell
with n dull thud upon their supporters , as
each ono was made on tbo third man. and
each one gave their opponents a run. Sum
Patterson pitched n splendid game , and was
was ably supported hy Crippled Croighton
behind the bat. The visitors played irroat
ball , their errors costing them nothing.
Bradford in center Held made a splendid

NBW YOIIK , July ! ? 0. The stock exchange
was full of fnlso rumors today nITcctlnif tlio
credit of banking houses and commercial
llrms innd the free matinor In which the
names of big houses were handled cauicd anxiety. It was believed by many that
there must bo some foundation for the re
ports and many holders of stocks and bonds
throw over their securities. . Union Pacific
suffered most from the boar attacks which
accompanied this 1 Iquldntlon and sold down
to ; iltjfcor Ji'c below the lowest point. Cotton
nnd other staples were ulso affected by the
Investigation showed that the rumors were
based on a report that n mooting of bankers
had been held in this city , which some ono
conjectured to moan that n banking ItoUsc
was In trouble. It turns out that n meeting
of bankers was held on Wednesday , but it is
said to have been for the purpose of discus
sing the new ocean bill of lading for cotton
adopted at the Liverpool cotton conference
last month. Accordlmr to a cable ndvorso
rumors were nllout in Cnplecout yesterday ,
which cannot well bo dollned , but It is said
said that nn advance of several hundred
pounds which was duo by a , largo house
last Saturday Is still uncompleted , notwith
standing Unit 10 per cent has been offered
, or money. "
' The Evening Sun prints the following in
its extra edition this evening : "For several
days there have boon low wbispors in Wall
street about the credit of the great Anglo-
American banklne bouso. It tins been under ,
stood that in conseinionco ot Its connection
with sorno outside enterprises , the house has
been ij a very shaky condition. The house
in question U one of the oldest on Wall
street , and its foreign house is ono of the
largest banking houses of London. The first
talk about it begun some months ngo , when
the bills of exchange of this house were dis
criminated against. Then about two or three
weeks ago it was understood that the . house
was In trouble and that another largo house
was helping it out of its difllcultics. It was
stated that by tomorrow it would bo doll-
nitoly known whether orliot the house would
pull through. "
Mr. Dicky of the ( Irm of Brown Bros. &
Co. snld ho bad hoard of the rumor , had
heard of it being about the street for a week
past. It wns to the effect that some firm
was indebted In the sum ot JW.UOO.OOO which
they could not pay. "What the firm is , or
whether thorc is any such linn at all , I don't
know , " no continued. " 1 only know that it is
notourllrm and that i nil I know about it.
The man or men who started such a rumor
ought to bo found out nnd sent to the peni
tentiary for lifo. Sucn a crime as that is
worse than nnd does the country
moro harm. I should , be glad to see the per
son who is guilty in tins case run down nnd
caught. I can only repeat that I have not
the remotest idea of any firm to which the
rumor might apnly. "

Thrilling Story of Numerous CrimcH
Conoliuleil In Miirdcr. *
CmivnxNHVyo. . , July 110. ( Special Tel
egram to THE Bircj. ; United States Marshal
Hankin reached toivn today from Buffalo and
lodged in jnll James E. McDermott , who is
cnnrgcd with robbing the United States mail.
McUcrmott was. postmaster at Bonanza
in the Big ' Horn basin. About
n year , nj p a letter was
sent from Billings , Mont. , to a man living in
the neighborhood ) of Bananza. The letter
contained J100 and never reached its destina
tion Jn
, f
McDormott'swyo ; now charges him with
the destruction of the letter. Antedating
this arrest is ncsefics of crimes. McDermott
and a man imtnoJ 'Madden were neighbors in
the basin. The latter , it is said , was too in-
tnnato with MdUicrmott's wifo. There was
bad blootl i between the men of
the two families. Ono day on
coming homo McDermott found his
wife missing. ' ' Ho took his llttlo boy and
wontovcr to Maddens to llnd her. On the
way ttioro ho mot Madden , who opened llro.
McDermott instinctively raised his llttlo boy
as a shield I'-iiMl the child wns kille'd
and the- same bwlot Injured MoDermott
in the temple. Madden was subsequently
ncquittod on the ground of self-defense , the
belief having been that McDermott had n
trun. MoDcrmott then had Madden arrested
for being the leader of a gang of horse
thieves , and Mrs , McDermott had her
husband arrested for robbing the mull.
Neither of the latter cases have yet como to
trial , but the prevailing belief is that neither
of the men concerned nro oettor than they
should bo and the country would bo well rid
of both.

To Reorganize Catholic
HOME , July 30. The holy see has just ap
pointed an extraordinary commission of car
dinals to reorganize the Catholic missions.
Two years ago Cardinal Slmeoni prepared
and communicated to the pope a plan of re
forms In order to bolter regulate the action
of the propaganda , but the coming of Car
dinal Simooni .from England on a special mis-
Mon to Pope Leo in reference to colonial
questions had the effect of postponing the ex
ecution of the projected reforms , as the
propaganda did not wish to awaken the idea
that the reforms were made in consequence
of an arrangement with England. Any
suspicion of such an arrangement would have
roused the greatest jealousy In Franco. Leo ,
who has alwaj's boon in favor of the missions
taking a leading part la the work of coloniza
tion , had revived those projects of reform.
The inquiry of the commission of cardinals ,
will , it is said , extend over the whole of the
npostollo works. The Vatican does not In
tend to allow the question of social reform to
drop , now that ( ho pope's encyclical letter
tias been published. It is stated that in
quiries are still being maio : and instructions
sent to the prelates of all countries to encour
age Catholics to do their utmost towards
ameliorating the condition of the poor and of-
fcciiug the social reforms urged in the en
Herr Schloosor , the Prussian minister to
the Vatican , will soon leave Homo for his or
dinary vacation. His recent nominations
with the holy see have had llttlo success.
The Vatican Is greatly dissatisried with the
tardiness with which Prussia is inclined to
trout the most urgent ecclesiastical affairs.
The recent economic crisis at Homo has al
most ruined.many of the ancient families ,
such as the Borghose , Solarr and Barberlni.
The Borgheso families appear to have been
the greatest sufferers. Paul Bor
gheso , Its present head , is said to
have ordered the most-rigorous economy In
the management of his properties In order to
gnt over the great losses recently sustained.
Ho has distributed the works of art which
composed the celebrated Borghoso gallery
among his nine brothers so as to enable them
to lease the apartments given np to the art
collection to n bank One hears expressions
of regret on all stiles at this action. It is
feared that the example may find imitation
on the part of the other great families and
that there may thus bo a gonon.l breaking
up ot the line " nrlvnto art gallery collections
at Homo.

PAIUS , July 30 , M. Fnvotto , ch'of ' of the
ministry of commerce nnd industries , grunted
the Chicago fair commissioners a most cor
dial interview of over two hours' duration
todny. He nsked the commissioners ques
tions in regard to the fair and received satis
factory replies. Ho assured the commission
ers that the position of Franco townrd the
world's fair hud never been doubled and
that now she was now moro nrdeKt than over
and her intorasti would bo well rep

the chambers of commerces In various cities
and had found thorn decidedly favorable to
French representation. France expects to
make the finest art exhibit at thu Chicago
fulr that she has over made. Numbers of
the leading artists nad promised the most-im
portant examples of their works. There
would bo no doubt a largo wall space and llio
interest in the exhibit would bo so great that
n separate building for thu French art dis

In regard to a report that the American rail

lerworth assured M. Favotto that the report
was untriio nnd showed him u tuleirram from
the president of the exhibition olllcl.illy
stating Unit exhibits would bo returned tree
of freight charges. Having sntlslled M.
Favotto regarding uftectivo protection for
patents and copyrights and the effect of the
American contract labor on attendants mid
cafe ana restaurant privileges the deputa

existed to favor foreign exhibitors at the
expense or the Fronen or any other country.
In conclusion M. Fiivelto oxprosiod great
pleasure at the Interview and appointed u
meeting for Saturday to discuss details.

American minister , who conducted thnin to

lUt/mtnnr , Md. . July ! H ) . Alt Associated
press reporter called tonight on Cardinal
Ulbbons In relation to the controversy bo-
Uveon the bureau of Catholic Indian missions -
sions and the commissioner of Indian affairs.
The cardinal snld " 1 have given tbo sub
ject of the Catholto lmll.ui bureau In Its re
lations to the interior department much anx
ious thought dtirln ? the tail two WOOIM
mid have taken all the information Unit
could bo obtained from the bet t and most
trustworthy sources. 1 am now happy to bo
in a position to communicate facts and con
clusions which ought to dhpol the fears and
encourage the hopat of these Intimately con
nected with the Catholic Indians of the
United States. Undue Importance , I am now
satisfied , has been attached to the recent
controversy between the commissioner of In
dian affair. ) , Hnu. T , J , Morgan , and the
bureau of Catholic I'ldlnn missions.
"Mr. Morgan tins thought it iidvlsnblo for
the moro olTectlvo expedition of business In
his district to have nil contracts of schools
signed by the several .superintendents of such
schools rather than by the director of the
Cuihollo bureau , as heretofore practiced. I
do not sco how this ohango can in any nufn-
nor nlToet the real Interest of the Indians ,
nnd therefore It is a point which should not
disturb us. The bureau of Catholic Indian
missions Is still In n position to labor
in many fields of usefulness. In
fact the signing of contracts was not origin
ally comprised in the scope of its work. At
my request mid In obedience to his own
hearty sympathy for the Indians the arch
bishop of bt. Paul paid a visit to Mr. Mor
gan. The commissioner received him most
kindly and gave him ample and positive as
surances of his disposition and Intention to
treat the Catholic Indian schools with equity
nnd generosity ,
"Mr. Morgan promised that all of last
year's contracts shall bo continued , and
furthermore , in view of now applications . . - *
recently made to him , he is , lie said , appro
priating nn additional sum of .flU.UOO over
nnd nliovo the amounts heretofore assigned
for the support of Catholic Indian schools.
"Archbishop Ireland N personally
satisfied that Mr. Morgan's ii stiriiiiros will
bo carried out , and Is delighted with tno
result of bis Interview. 1 have every reason
to believe that the president and secretary
of the interior aro" benevolently disposed
toward the Catholic Indian schools. Thorn
can bo no doubt that tbc.v will treat tlio .
schools in a Just nnd uijnitablo manner. I
am persuaded that at all times , especially in
the present Juncture , the cause of the poor
Indian will bo much moro benefited by good
temper and forbearance , nnd a disposition to
waive minor points than by harsh crlticlsn , '
and Intemperate speech.
'Wo should remember that nlnn In high
places have conllicUng interests to subserve ,
nnd they nro required to consider tlio views
and demands not of a section of a community
but of tbo on tire people.
"Catholics have many reasons to thank
Uod for the blessings they enjoy as citi/.ons
of the United States , It" is biit just to say
in conclusion that the bureau of Catholic In
dian mission sinools has never obtained for
Itself nor for any of its employes ono cent of
the government's money. Tlio checks il has
received from the treasury of the United
Status were endorsed over to the superin
tendents of their respective schools. Its own
expenses have been entirely defrayed by
private contributions. "

from attorneys formerly employed , and ask
ing if the asset tions therein made were true.
Tlio said clients are parties who , having been
previously robbed by claim agents , eagerly
grasped the opportunity for relief oy trans
ferring their cases to this bureau when eon 1
gress opened the door by annulling previous
contracts. Now , the aforesaid claim agent
cormorants , fearing they may bo balked of
the prey they have so long entangled in their
meshes , have begun to Hood the country with
circular letters In which they constantly
harp on two themes , v\/ \ . : That congress hni
no power to annul private contracts , nnd Unit
their powers of attorney are Irrevocable bar-
cause coupled , with mi interest , namely , u
contingent fee , .
Wo do not oroposo at the present time to
advertise the utimei : of those parties who now
masquerade under the cognomen of nttor
noys , though strongly tempted to glvo them
the celebrity their ounsi-Iltoraiy-lugal en
deavors so richly merit , Ono in particular
deserves special recognition , by n maudlin
communication of eight pages in which ho
jumbles useless facts with innelful theories ,
garbles Judicial decisions , and so inextricably
entangles his words that in ninny instances
tlio closing part of his sentences havu no np > -
parent connection with the beginning.
To any ono versed in the law of tlio bind
such idiotic letters are a matter oniv f ridl-
culo and tunuso'iionl. lint when wo consider
that the average claimant In tlm west Is nec
essarily ignorant of the law governing the

The question of extent to which congress
may go In Its Interference with private con
tracts , is undoubtedly ono on which HOIIIU of
the most eminent legal minds hnvo differed ,
nnd It were easy to wnto n volnino on either
side. However , the philosophical and politi
cal arguments pro ainl con nro something
with which wo at present have no conco'-n
We conllno ourselves to the cold , hard logla
of facts , That thu last congress illd specill-
Ciilly nance I and annul all existing contract *
between ulnliniintK and attorneys in the Ir
dlau depredation net of March : , , Is a
fact which not oven tlm squirming i-Jjjiw
agents deny , and whleh anyone interested
may read for himself ny applying tu us tiu , i
eopv ot tlio law. Possibly tno onilnent con-
stithllonrd lawyers and Jurists In the sonnto

consulted those ob-iouro claim agents before
passing the act which HO seriously

The second legal problem Involved Is that
of revocation of powers of attorney. When
and under what ciriuimstaneus the claimant
can recall an existing power und employ
another attorney. Our eight page frloml
