Wo took another fall from the Illinois
crowd yesterday. Up to the ninth Inning
It W B as pretty a game of ball as any one
could wish to see. Tlio visitors played as
though they hnd some designs on the game ,
and President MoVlttle's aggregation put up
a game that would win anywhere. The vU-
llors , however , were unable to hit White-
hill with any effect , while- the home tenm
batted like tigers.
Wo started right after the game In the
first Inning. Seery and.Munyun got a quar
tet of bad balls apiece and then McVey
tapped out a single towards tlio. left field
fence. Seory was nipped In a commendable
effort to sneak home on the play , but Fear
made It up by lining out a hot ono that
brought both runners homo. ' .McFarlan
fielded Knurkc out at first and Fisher took
care ot Moran's fly.
The Suckers went out easy and then a
couple ot hits with a base on balls yielded
two more runs for the Omahas.
Qulncy scored once In the third. Fisher
made a clean single and Thorpe cracked a
hot ono In an apparently safe spot between
JIunyun and McVey. Everybody started to
score a hit , but Munyun made a running
pickup of the ball that brought down the
grand stand and Thorpe had to go to the
bench. Krehmeyer made the hit that
brought Fisher home , and then a fly catch
by Munyun and DuShane's three strikes and
out retired the sldo. *
Wo tallied three times In the fourth on a
couple of hits , an error and Munyun's
homer over the left field fence. A couple
of clean hits netted the visitors one In the
seventh , and then matters progressed very
peaceably until the ninth , when the local
ball tosscrs gave the visitors a little exhibi
tion ot what they could do when they felt
llko It. McFurlan made a beautiful one-
hand catch of Seery's fly and then
Ilourke's aggregation unbottled a case of
base hits that gave the visitors a touch of
snakes. Singles , two-baggers and home
runs followed each other In such quick suc
cession that the Suckers lost their heads
entirely and a quartet of glaring errors
marred an otherwise brilliant fielding game.
Nine runs crossed the plate and then we
stopped from sheer weariness and saved the
rest for today.
The last game of the series will be played
this afternoon. The game will be called at
3 o'clock to allow the visitors to catch a
train , and as It will be the last home game
for a time there should be a good crowd
out to see them make It three straight. The
Omahas will go- away for a two weeks' trip
tomorrow , and then they como back and
play 'a terles with Lincoln. Score :

CLIFFORD GETS A BAD START
Western Crnck Practically Left nt the Post

Itaco Track OnlcluU All
Placed Under ArrcflU
BROOKLYN , Mar 15. A better day could
not have been desired for the opening ot
the race season In New York stale and
the running of the great Urooklyn Handicap ,
valued at $25,000 , at the Grarcscnd track
today. The sun rose with a clear sky , be
lying tlia promise of the night before , and the
air was clear as a bell and a warm breeze
swept across the track.
At 2 o'clock the horses named for the
first race were hoisted on the bulletin
board , and the 112 bookmakers , three more
than the best on record , began chalking up
the orders. Out on the lawn when the race
was called there was a sea of heads , their
owners packed so close together that It
looked llko a solid mass , and others were
struggling to get out In the ring , whnro they
could see a small part of the race. It was
estimated then by good judges that at least
40,000 were present , and many were going
homo unable to get anywhere near the
track. It was the biggest day In the his
tory ot the Brooklyn Jockey club and must
have been an Immense money getter , for
nearly alt paid their admission , the free
passes having been reduced by at least 75
per cent. The place was crowded with
ladles , not ono of whom got In without pay-
Just before the first race was run an offi
cer appeared at the Gravesend track and
notified President P. J. Dwyer that a warrant
had been Issued for his arrest and told him
that he must appear before Justice Walali In
Brooklyn tomorrow morning to answer. No
arrests ot bookmakers were made.
JUDGES WERE ARRESTED.
Just before the third race was run Da
Lacey again made his appearance. This
time he was In greater force , for Sheriff
nulling , with a host of deputies , came on
with warrants which were likely to take
him the whole afternoon to serve. The
sheriff and Ills deputies wont Into the judge's
stand enclosure and had a talk with Presi
dent Dwyer and Secretary Mclntyre , but the
two latter refused to state the object of the
visit. It was apparent , however , Immediately
after the race was run , for the Judges , Colonel
nel Simmons , Clarence McDowell and Victor
Smith , were arrested after they placed the
horses In the third race , and In company
with John M. Bowers , counsel to the club ,
and Senator McCarthy were driven to the
town hall In Gravesend.where bail was given ,
and they were released after some dclay had
been caused to the Brooklyn handicap. Sher
iff Bulling had other warrants , and It was
said that ho intended to arrest the other
officials , but he rested content with the ar
rest of three Judges and went away from the
track. An effort was made to discover the
character of the affidavits on which the war
rants were Issued , but further than an un
official statement that It was for conducting
a lottery nothing was learned. During the
rest ot the day there was little excitement
and the races proceeded without delay.
It waa a few minutes past 5 o'clock when
the candidates for the $25,000 stake began
to move up. When the horses were all at
the post the spectators settled down for a
long wait , for Starter Howe had not been
doing any better thus far than ho did last
\ MTIDYAREOFF . '
Thirty-two long minutes the assemblage
waited , and _ fumed , ind thjsn Immpdlat ly
after a long break , Rbwe dropped hla flag- ,
swishing through the air. ami the start was
made. And such a start as It was. Lowlander -
lander , the winner ot last year's Suburban ,
was standing still , and did not get away at
all , while Clifford , the heavily backed fa
vorite , seemed to be practically left at 'the
post. A howl arose from the crowd , for they
saw that with , such a disadvantage It was
an Imposiblllty for the western champion
to do anything whatever. Copyright was the
first away , with Henry of Navarre second ,
Herald third. Dr. Rice fourth , Blltzen fifth
and the others bunched as follows : Banquet ,
Sir Walter , Comanche. AJai , Bassetlaw and
Diablo , while Clifford and Sport were al
most' standing still , although they got in
motion immediately and started on a stern ,
hopeless chase. Down the stretch they ran ,
gathering speed with every bound and thun
dering past the judges' stand , a quarter mile
from the post , with all running well. Copy
right , with his mouth wide open , ahead , In
front ot Dr. Rice , whom , Taral had taken
Into second place. Halt a length away was
Henry of Navarre under an easy pull , with
Herald and the despised Blltzen following
closely behind. There was a bunch In this
order : Banquet. Comanche , Aax. Sir Wal
ter , Bassetlaw and Diablo. Twenty lengths
bshlnd were Clifford , the pride of the west ,
and Sport In the dust kicked up by the
others , with no chance of winning unless all
the leaders fgjl. A groan went up
from tlio thousands who had bet ,
for Clifford was now without oven a chance
of having a run for their money. , It was
disheartening to the owners' ot the" crack ,
who had cent him so far for the race.
Aro'und the turn they flashed with , .vary
littla jostling for so. sharp a turn and so
narrow a track , and when the half-mile
mark was reached and they were straight
ened oUt for the run throtigh the back
stietch Dr. Rice was a head In front of
Copyright , and thus far a very few Inches
only had separated their noses as they ran
side by sldo so closely that a blanket would
have covered both. Two lengths behind was
Henry ot Navarre , a head In front of Herald ,
and all running easily.
SIR WALTER MOVES UP.
Blltzen was still hanging on to fifth place
In good style , while Doggett thought It was
about time to bring Sir Walter up and ho
was sixth at the half-mil ? . Comanche was
still In the seventh place. Banquet had
fallen back to eighth and Ajax was be
ginning to hold'out signals of distress In the
ninth. Bassetlaw and Diablo followed and
Sport and Clifford were far In the rear , un
able , to gain an Inch on the flying field.
They passed thn three-quarters mark with
Henry of Navarre In the lead , a head In front
of Copyright , with Dr. Rico within striking
distance , Taral handling him In. & masterly
fashion. Sir Walter was fourth and Basset-
law waa becoming dangerous , for he moved
up five pegs and looked good for much more.
Comunclio was sixth , Banquet seventh and
Diablo eighth. The mlle was covered by
Navarre In 1:42 , and ho was u , head In front
of Dr. llic > , who had come up. Copyright
had dropped back to sixth place. Sir Walter
was a .Ipnglh behind Dr. HIco and two
lengths behind Bassetlaw , who was 'still
very much In the race. The . .otherswero
running In the order they passed the three-
quarter * polo and completely out of It.
INTO THE STRETCH.
Into the stretch the horses flew , Sir
Walter ami Bassotlaw getting whip and spur.
Dr. Klc < ? began to wear down the gallant
3-year-old and Clayton was urging Navarre
to his utmost , but hla horse was stopping
fast under him. Bassetlaw was hanging
on to Sir Walter , with Comanclio close be
hind. The frantic yells from the crowd
were heard , and , as thu watch ticked 2:0714 : ,
Dr. Hlce , tha tastoff from the Gideon &
Daly stable , flashed under the wire a length
In front of Henry of Navarre , with the
great Sir Waller one and a half lengths be
hind and two , lengths In front ot llassetliw.
Comunche wa fifth and the others any

Hats went Into the air , and for the second
year -succession Taral waa placed In the
tloral jockey's chair and carrfed off by the
crowd. It uaa a true run race and well.won.

LOUISVILLE , Mny 15-Over 15,000 people
ple assembled at Churchill Downs to see
the contest for the .twentieth renewal of
the Kentucky Derby : Although this race
has steadily dep-oil'fttjd In Impoitnticc ns
a turf event for seven ? ! years , the hi.'ior
of taking this cl.m In the trophy Is still
keenly sompotjd fo > - by the Kentucky
breeders , as It la ruiMrdcd ns the highest
test of thorou < jh'jrid ' colt to take up JJ !
pounds over a mile and n half In tiK.lnir
time nt the bcglnit n * of the season , and
frequently th'3 winner and many of the
paitlclpanla tire broken down and end
their turf careers as a result of the prep
arations for und participation In the
Long before noon the free field was
packed with the nondescripts who , In ac
cordance with old Kentucky racing cus
toms , take a. holiday on tills rcc&slon.
The smart thunder shower had no effect
upon this clement. It probably Improved
the track , laying the dust r.nd leaving It
In good condition , as the time made In
other events on today's card Indicates.
Lexington , the Blue Grass capital , had
not sent a local champion thin year to
contend for the Blue Ulbbon and Turf
stakes , but ns the FTUsetto colt. Chant ,
came from the Lexington to this course
they supported him as against the Louis
ville trained horse , rather than be without
a champion. This support and the fact
that practical turfmen , who regard racing
as a business and not from a sentimental
standpoint , favored a horse who had al
ready run and won as against unknown
quantities who luul not faced the nag save
In their 2-year-old form , made Chant A I
prohibitive favorite , and the result of the
race showed the wisdom of the Judgment
ot the many , as Chant "won all the way"
as he pleased , and might have easily dis
posed oC a much better field than he met
Pat , the Scoggans' colt , while of good
enough quality to have made the race In
teresting , was withdrawn today on ac
count of a split off sustained In exercising.
The horses got away at the second break.

COLUMI1US , Jlay JE. ( Special Telegram
to the Bee. ) The nineteenth annual tourna
ment of the Nebraska '
State Sportsmen's as
sociation opened up hero on the local club's
shooting grounds this morning under na
favorable auspices as has distinguished any
of the former shoots. In fact , there Is , ono
noticeable feature about the present tour
nament that has always been absent at these
annual gatherings , and that Is an entire
absence of foreign professional talent. A
largo majority of the participants are pure
ly Nebraska sportsmen , and those who nre
hero from adjoining states have never fig
ured with any degree ot consplculty within
tlm expert ranks. Heretofore such sure
thing artlsta as "Chippy" IJudd , Holla Hicks
S. A. Tucker , Fred Qulmby , Charlie Grim
Jim Elliott , Scdam. Mechllng Haywood
and a score of others were always on hand
and were always "In and In" on all the
events. This , of course , was discouraging
to the local shots of lessor caliber , ant
many , of the events would dwindle down tea
a simple strife between professionals. This
spring theru are none ot these familiar old
faces on exhibition , yet there are a number
of local shots hero who take rank with the
'finest shots In the country , noticeably
Frank S. Iarmclec , G. W. Loomls , C. E.
Latchshaw , Ted Ackerman , H. I ) . Kennedy
J. C. Read , "Uncle" Ucn , J. C. Duer , Pete
Slmpsoa and others , and while the shootIng -
Ing will In all probability bo up to the high
est standard , the best ot feeling prevails
and the different events will bo well filled.
The local club , which consists of G. D.
Spctcc , G. A. Scliroedcr , A. Q. and H. J.
Arnold. J. S. Wells and D. F. Davis , have
made all their arrangements with the very
best judgment , and the shooters are lavish
In their praise.
The attendance here this morning Is fully
up to that of the first day of any previous
meeting , and promises to be doubled when
the evening trains arc all In. Among those
on the grounds are : Frank Parmelee , W.
H. S. Hughes. Goodley Brucker , Fred Blake ,
J. C. Read , Will Townsend , H. B. Kennedy ,
J. W. Gwln , George W. Loomls and O. E.
Eplnetter of Omaha ; Emll Lcuck , Ted Ack

tings ; J. C. Miller , York ; Dan Bray , Syra

largo number of others whose names arc not
just now obtainable.
The day would have been perfect for the
sport had It not been for the wind , which
came from the south In a veritable hurri
cane , sweeping straight across the target
range and dead away from the live bird
traps , rendering good scores a rarity. This
was noticeable especially In tlm target events ,
and the ridiculously low scores of some of
the very best shots Is thus accounted for.
The Merldan hotel , by reason of
a handsome contribution on the
part of Its genial proprietor , Jolin
O. Pollock , was made the headquarters of
the visiting sportsmen , and right royally
are they being" taken jiare of.
