of Minneapolis , Milwaukee , Omaha , Kansas

Columbus In place of Toledo. H.v the forma
tion of a six-club 10,11:110 tbo teams can ba
greatly strengthened by the surplus of play

'Why , " ho snlil"it's funny thatthelcaguo
is going to pieces alt at once and no ono out-
sldo of Milwaukee know It. Mr. liarllott
may know what lie's talking about , but I
don't. In fact this Is the lirst in
timation I have had of the dissolu
tion of the Icaguo other than what
cumos from 1'ltuburg and Loinsvillo. In
these big leuguo titles there is unquestion
ably a desire to break up the Western Icaguo
in order tuat players muy bo secured , but I
do not IhlnU tbat any Western club will bo a
parly to thntsehomo. Omaha is in good con
dition financially and very well satisfied to
go on as she is. "
"Fake1 , " said Gus Schmel ! ! , and his lam
brequin bobbed nervously , "puro fake and
Milwaukee fuke at that. First 1'vo hoard of
it. Columbus is doing right well , and I liopo
to keep nor where she is at the head of the
Western league. "
Might Tiihii Ilernt HIT Word.
It Is quito a reasonable presumption in the
case of Milwaukee , as with I'ittsburg and
Louisville , that the wish is father to the
thought. That ttm team has ahvays been a
disturbing element In tliu Western 'icaguo is
patent to all who havu watcbud the course
of affairs during the past few years.
It has been the ambition of the
magnates of that town to bccomo
members of the National leacuo. This.samo
bco buzzes In tno head of ' 'Huron" Ily Haeh
of Minneapolis. Of course this ib laudable
r aud should bo oucourngeu , but nulortuniitoly
for the aspirations of these cities
they are both so far olT "main
traveled roads" that there isn't tnti remotest -
motost possibility of their over getting
Into the big league. Ai nn outcome of ttio
guerilla warlaro waged against tbo Na
tional and Western last year bv the
American , Mlhvauuco was given a place In
the latter association to the end tbat the
Western might bo wrecked. And howoaeorly
the magnates of Schliutown accepted the
proffer ! It was nothing to thorn that the
interests of savon other cities should bo jeopardized
ardized so long as there was tu.
opportunity to udvanco their own pros-
pi'ctB. Well , according to tholr own
confession , thnt niovo cost them all
of $ I0UUU ! , their bust players ( Schrivor ,
Victory , School : , Alborts , C3rim , Campion )
and when the season was ended und tbo
great mojiuls of the game began to.mukoup
circuits for the new your Milwaukee was
not considered at all. Have the
Milwaukee- bosses forgotten the hours
they spent outside the door at
the Indianapolis mooting waiting to bear from
the liiHlilo concerning their fate ? Have
they forgotten the answer given whou thov
kicked on the Indemnity awarded thorn in
the reorganization Kottlumont.and werotold to
take It or nothing I May bo thov ' have. But
Iho pooplu haven't forgotten tho'tronchorv of
thosn ulcKurH in times gone by , an it it Is easy
to ace the animus of their dusiro to create anew
now six-cluu leugc , without Columbus und
Fort Wnyne. Columbus has the championship -
ship ; Milwaukee wants it sue )
If Fort Wnyiio drops out and Milwaukee
disbands , the six test towns of the circuit to-
main Intai-l , ami the elements of weakness
mid discontent aiv removed. Why not take
Milwaukee at her word I Let her uisband ,
and then lot the six clubs remaining in linish
the schedule. If the other c.ubs
show H little lirmnoss in this matter
Milwaukee will bo glad enough to gel Dark ,
and without dictating terms.
The Western Icaguo is the strongest bnso
ball organization In the country today , Its
tl nan cos are In good hlmpo , every city'savo
Milwaukee is contor.t , and there is no danger
of ttio loapuo'n disruption.

Base Halt association held at the Nebraska
National name this uiternoon it wns con
cluded to let the club ctisbana nnd that
Hoatnco would go out of the boio ball busi
ness , at least for this season. The cause
for the dlshandmant of thu club lies in
the fact that the State league ro-
( inirod of Hcatrico that she should put
up n guarantee of S-U ) for each gamu
played hero and would net only S-jfi
when the LJontrlco team wont away from
home. The unfairness of the scheme "was so
pulpablo that IJualrico , rather than submit ,
will ( jult the business altogether. The mum-
bers of the club wore paid off tonlirhl ana
released. Thochibinct and decided to dis
band this ovuning.
' 1'bo to.im is the strongest in thu stnto unu

ulthoUL'b n brisk wind placou the horses nt
some disadvantage. Thu spectators , though
not so numerous : is yesterday , made a largo
assembly. The program opened with the
unfinished race of yusterdiiy , the S'2 ; $ trot.
Since the closing heat last nieht the race
was conceded to John \V. and Idavan , soil-
inc even inonoy botwoou the two. At 1)0 : ! )
the race was called , and the excitement ran
high as the horses appeared , increasing

lead well chased by IJlack Prince. Lady
Dophine third , and King HolMday fourth.
The foals of 18'Jl ' trot , ono milo dash ,

admiration for the olforts of the yearlings.
It resulted in Lady Kusaoll taking Ilrst
money , Hilly MeKlnloy second , and Saint

ing Dark Night for third.
The y-yeur-old trot was the last event of
the day and was expected to be of unusual
interest. Mary was everybody's favorite
and pools were soiling 10 to 5. In the
opening heat Mary soon had a good
lead , which she hold nobly till reaching
the last quarter post. She became friirhtoned
at its shadow extending across tuo track und
ran into the funco , throwing the driver to
the ground. Ho stnycd with the reins , and
had almost regained his seat when the ani

the only survivor of the three men who
descended in tlio balloon yesterday , told tbo
story of the trip as ho lay on a cot In the
hospital today. Ho said :
"When the balloon arose In the air wo an
ticipated nn euloynblo trip. At first it
seemed ns If tuo balloon would talto n wes
terly course , but u strong wind from the
west suddenly h'rbso uud swept it toward
South JUoston. ft'was ' soon oviOont tbat wo
were heuJing for'tho ' harbor. It was then
hat Piof. U6'fer ' ; s'aid that ho would
laud on Thoiripson's Island. To fail of
this , wo all know , 'mount to bo carried out to
sea. The professor seemed to reali/o this ,
ns ho became u : trifle nervous. Ho pulled
the escape vnlvo cord , but the cord remised
to work. It was. then a question of life or
death. Again and Wain ho pulled. Fora
moment the buiro rtass shook and quivered.
Soon our position became uncoinlortiiblo
because of the ' odor of the gas. To mlt-
Igato this the hold ou the cord was
relaxed. To our nmnzomont the vnlvo
refused to close. > Prof. Kogers kept his
hnnd ou the rope. , , Suddenly a noise over
head unused us. to look tip. There was a
sir.nll rent In the b'allon , which , as the gas
escaped , increased < 6n yard. At lirst slowly
and then like an1 arrow ; the balloon decended" .
In this awful moment It occurred' to rae that
two carrier pigeons wura in the bot'.om of
the caiv With 0110 wrouch 1 opened the cage
and tnoy were free , A moment later wo
struck the water. It seemed as if 1 wont ton
feet below the surface. I know wo would
have to swim , and so before wo struck the
water I bail thrown my coat away. I haa
not time to remove my shoes , but while in
the water I lay on my back and removed
them. Thun I became tanclod up In the not-
tin ? . When I came up I wriggled free nnd
jumped from the basnet.
' The land soemcd far away , though I am
told It was only 000 yards. AU this time I
heard Prof. Rogers behind mo nnd I sup
posed that ho too was swimming for the
shore , t felt faint while swimming from the
effects of the gas , ami if 1 hail not boon
picked up quickly I would have givou out.
"Whether Prof. Rogers died from the
effects of tbo gas or trom the fall I do not
know. lie was near mo nil the time until bonk
' -nk in the water. "

V. O. Strlckler and Paul Vandorvoort In

like to have Its hondiiuartew located lu this

a liberal contribution to the expenses
of tbo committee , The nnmo of
Dr. S.D. . Murcorvns montioncd as
ono of the oxpactod contributors , nud It was
iutimnted thnt ho would uonnto board nuu
lodging at bis hotel for the chairman and the
bocrctnry nnd perhaps two some money
besides. The doctor's recent experience with
the republican state commlttoo was dwelt
upon nnd the Improssnn win given out that
ho was about to desert the republican party
mid Join the Independents. It was stated
thnt other Omaha citizens would probably
contribute suniolent 'to provide rooms for
headquarters and employ n stenographer.
A motion wns made to appoint n commlttoo
to confer with the citizens Interested mid
ascertain what they would do. Several members
bors , solicitous for llioir dignity , objected to
taking nn uetion th.it would h.ivo the uppoar-
nuco of bogging , pnrticulnrly from the chair
man of the republican state commlttoo , nnd
Messrs. Vuniturvoort and Strlciclur were
giV-'u to understand that they must get a
dPllnito proposition and In writing in order
to have it seriously considered.
AVImt < ] IMMV Out f Tins.
The circumstance gave rise to the rumor
that Ur. Murcfr br.d determined to resign
his chairmanship und join ttio third party ,
nud the recent proceedings of thu republican
committee lent color to the report. . It was
argued that the doctor's ohniicus for the
gubernatorial nomination had been spoiled
by the action of the committee in making Us
apportionment for the coming state conven
tion and that ho hail ir. coiiseciuonco bueomo
so disgruntled bo ttilrstud for revongo. The
know-it-alls went on to explain that the
doctor saw in the third party movement nn
excellent moans ot defeating the republican
ticket in the coming oloution und thereby as
serting his power. The doctor Is ambitious ,
they explained , and sues in the now move
ment nn opportunity to gratify his desires ,
believing that his wealth and apparent power
as demonstrated in the coming campaign
will make him n peculiarly available man for
the people's party.
That was thu gossip last night. A friend
of the doctor , however , offorqd another viovv
rtf I lin * > 'i t.n
I'nroly u ISiislness Jlntter.
"Dr. Mercer , " ho said , "is the owner of a
new hotel nnd lias a pride as wull ns a
pecuniary interest In building upn patronage
tor it as speedily us possible. Ho
evidently looks at this matter from a
business poiut of view without
reference to his political position.
Ho probably reasons that il ho had the
national headquarters nt his hotel the
politicians of that party when in Omaha
would naturally stop n't the same house.
During the next four months the heau-
quurters will probably bo visited bv
hundreds if not thousands and if any ono
hotel cau corral all their patromigo It will
bo worth thousand ! ) of dollars , if the price
is not ton hi , ? ) ! it looks like u very shrewd
business stroijo. "
Mr. S'.ricklor , when interviewed last night ,
said : "Several citizens hu"o oxproisud a
willingness to contribute toward tlio expense
of securing the headquarters of the people's
party , but I do not euro to mention mimes
because there is nothing dellnltu yot. 1 have
not scon Dr. Mercer , out understood Mr.
Vundorvoort had some talk with him about
this matter. Wo could not afford to accept
a contribution from him Individually and di
rectly , but of course if thociti/.ons of Omaha
as a body make up the suggested contribution
it is none of uur concern who the individual
contributors aro. Wo do not want to know
or recognize thorn * as such. It would bo a
great advertisement for Omahu to huvo the
headquarters and I am in hopes wo may so-
cura them. "
The selection of headquarters was referred

No man in the fiftieth congress was bet
tor informnd on parliamentary rufes , as bo
conclusively proved by holding tlio house In
a itcadlocK for several davs on a question re
garding the Oklahoma ro-orvation. liven
then he was recardud as u sort of stormy
patrol in politics , not a straightout democrat ,
and certainly not a republican. In his lirst
campaicn ho scarcely had the backing ot any
party , and his nomination was , in the poli
tician's phrase , 'docldoillv irregular , " yet
ho made n crossroads canvass among the
farmers and defeated 0:10 : of the br.iiiilest re
publicans lu the stato.
In 1SS4 the republican candldatu , Captain
