JACKSONVILLE , Aug. 4. ( Special Tele
gram to The nee. ) Although the Omahas
had Dave Rowe In the grand stand and the
umplro to help them , they lost today's
jftrno , though they worked manfully for It.
Capllngor put up the finest game In the
box ever seen on the Jacksonville grounds ,
though Clausscn struck out almost as many
men as he. The visitors' pitcher was hit
hard and our guests failed , to field properly.
On the other hand , "our boys" covered the
Held better than they have over done It ,
Kach uldo made a trlplo play , both of which
were of the sensational order. Score :

GREAT FINISH MADE BY Tilt VISITORS
Ten itun * rounded Out In tlio I.nut Unit of
the Ninth Almost Defeated the
Oood Intention * of the Do-
Pumpkin Huskcr wan a now horse. At
least none of the local horsemen had over
heard of him until the starters cavorted Into
line for the great Omaha Derby. The rural
cognomen v > a born a by an ungainly and
awkward a skate as was ever hitched to n
sulky. Ho was sway-backed , rlngboned and
spavined , nn'd just what his owner meant by
entering him In a race against such horses
aa Felix X , who had won every race ho had
started In this season was more than the
Jockeys could understand. Hut ho was there ,
and though bets of 40 to 1 against him
wore going begging , his driver seemed just
as contented as though ho sat behind Nancy
Hanks or Mascot.
The swayback got away with tlio rest
somehow and skated along In the roar , while
the crowd watched Felix speed away to a
certain victory. No ono noticed that at the
quarter polo the horse with the long odds
and crooked logs was taking a new lease of
life. lut ) he was , and In n minute more was
flying down the stretch. Ears laid straight
back , nostrils dilated , and hitting the turf
at a 2:03 : gait , the old nag forged up to
Felix's heels. Five lengths more and he
reached his heels , another and his ungainly
shanks showed ahead. It was only a length
more and the Husker was a length ahead.
Felix was beaten , and the favorite's backers
toro up their checks. Silence for a second ,
and then a shout that raised the grand
stand. Pumpkin Husker had fallen dead
within a yard of the wire , and Felix won
Something just like that occurred out at
Y. M. C. A. park yesterday afternoon when
the Christian ball players collided with a
team of hired men from the third city In
Nebraska , known to fame as Hastings. No
one In the crowd of probably 300 persons that
tilled the grand stand expected to see the
Adams county agriculturists get better than
second place. .U was just a question of how
much In their minds , and as eight and one-
half Innings wore passed It seemed that It
was to be pretty much , Indeed. The Chris
tians were coming at a winning gait , while
the visitors seemed distanced , eleven runs
SCARED AnnOTT ALMOST TO DEATH.
Hut In the last half Inning the haymakers
let out a couple of notches and came down
the stretch at a pace that made the good
young men bellovo that they had been Intro
duced to the Bostons In disguise. Ten runs
scored and but one man out. It looked as
though they were going to pass the favorite
and win In a walk , but like the swayback
In the story , they fell dead at the wire. I3ut
they made a glorious finish , and if they had
had anything like a fair deil In the matter
of un p'ring they would bavo b en wearing the
ucalps of the Christians to church at Hast
ings today. '
Speaking about umpiring , the work of the
young man who officiated In that capacity
yesterday deserves more than passing men
tion. He meant well , ' but a cauplo of the
most inexcusable decisions ever seen on a
ball field netted eight big , succulent runs for
the Christians In the fourth Inning.
Marquette was first at bat and was thrown
out at first. Then Jellen swatted a hot one to
short field. Perry made as pretty a stop
and throw as ' 'one could wish to see and
nailed Jellen ten feet from the bag. By
what mental process Mr. Clark reasoned out
the conclusion that Jell was safe no ono will
ever know. But he did and stuck to it and
the Adams county people had to take It.
Lawler then tapped out a three-bagger that
scored Jellen , and a few more bunts filled the
bases. McKelvey hit to Cope , who touched
Rustln out and threw to second to catclr1
Abbott. It was a fair double play , but again
thy umplro refused to allow It , and before the
Inning was over the Christians had corralled
eight runs they were no more entitled to
than they were to a house and lot on Fifth
The agriculturists have the making of a
first class ball team. Their battery work
was good and Geltman on first Is good enough
for any company. Webster played a brilliant
game on second , Perry being the only man
whose play was weak. The errors In the
outfield were mainly due to the racetrack ,
which they always forgot about In running
after a fly ball. Their great weakness was
In base running and team work. If a ball
was batted to short field with a runner on
first they all went after the ball and no one
seemed to think Is necessary to cover second.
With a little more care in this respect the
.team ought to make It Interesting for the
Christians any day In the week.
For the homo team Jellen carried off the
honors. Ills put outs In left field were of
the brilliant order , especially that of a hot
liner from Perry's bat in the fourth Inning.
Rustln also played ball , whllo Lawler , Rob
inson and Marquette led in the hitting.
Perry and Cope did most of the stick work
for the visitors , while Geltman did some base
steallijg that was good enough for anybody ,

Proud Title of Monarch.
HIS FAST MILE AT CLEVELAND WON IT
Wonderful lUt of silo Mllcn Turned Off In
Juno nnd .Inly Oiilln ' Dcfrut nt
Cloioluml n Disappointment
( losilji of thu 'Iriickn. '
The result of the free-for-all at Cleveland
leaves Robert J the undisputed champion of
the pacing turf. His dam Is acrnldlno , by
Jay Gould , and ho wns purchased by Mr.
Hamlln of Buffalo In 1802. That fall , al
though a green horse , he raced Olcndetints ,
and old campaigner , to death In a six-heat
race , winning the last three heats. In the
great free-for-all pace at Cleveland last Fri
day , July 27 , Robert J won the last three
heats , traveling one of them In 2:05 : W. which
goes on record as the fastest heat traveled
so far this year and the fastest mlle trav
eled on any course during the midsummer
Grand ClroJlt meEt.rgs. This Is a half second
faster than Flying Jib's fastest exhibition mlle
at Union Partt here In Juno. The following re
view of the performances of the fast nags
this season cannot fall to Interest horsemen
In all parts of the country :
Maud S. , the former queen of the trotting
turf , made her record of 2:08 : % at Cleveland
July 30 , 1885. U was at , that time the only
mile In 2:10 : or better by cither trotter or
pacer prior to August. It was four years
before another mlle In 2:10 : or better was re
corded for July , and that was when the
pacer Johnston turned the Detroit track In
2:091,1. : July 26 , 18S9. Three more years
passed without another extreme mile at either
gait during June or July. Last year , however -
over , the horses commenced to crack In fast
miles very early In the season , nnd by the
time August arrived nineteen heats had been
trotted or paced In 2:10 : or better , all but
four of them being races and all but three
of the number by pacers. Mascot had paced
six fast heats. Hal Pointer three , Saladln ,
Guy and Flying Jib two each , nnd Ontonlan
one. Little Albert and Walter E. had each
put In a mlle In 2:10 : at Detroit and the
black gelding Guy had trotted an exhibition
at Cleveland In 2:09 : % . Thus It will be seen
that In all previous years the months of
Juno and July have furnished but twenty-one
miles In 2:10 : or bolter. The marked Increase
In speed Is therefore clearly defined when
it Is stated that the present season has al
ready presented forty-one miles In 2:10 : or
The 4-year-old pacer Rnbenstcln wns the
first addition to the extreme list this year ,
with his record of 2:09V4 : at Windsor , Ont. ,
which equaled the previous world's record for
the age. He was followed by V'assar , 2:09 : % ,
also a pacer and full brother to the fast trot
ter Relic Vera , 2:08 : % . Then followed Lord
Clinton with a mi o In 2:09 : % at-Colmnbjs , O. ,
and another In 2:09 : at Detroit. Azote , 2:09 : % ,
was the fourth to enter the list , which ho
did at Detroit In Impressive style , and he
was followed at the same meeting by the
pacer John R. Gentry , who went a second
heat In 2:09' : . The Cleveland meeting fur
nished live new ones. Including the cham

Online proved to bo a great disappoint
ment to his admirers In the 2:10 : class pace
at Cleveland , but It does not seem to have
boon the fault of this great little pacer , for
he traveled the flrat two heats In 2:07',4 : and
2:0714. : In these heats critics contend that
Chandler pushed thn horse faster than was
nccessary-and raced him out ot speed. Up to
the third heat the race looked like a gift to
the Nebraska horse , and betting on the heats
had stopped. IJut Rellcctor won the third
heat by a neck In un exciting finish In 207 ; % .
This heat beat Online out of the race , ' and
Moonstone , driven by Goers , took the next
three heats and wop the race In from two to
four seconds slower than the first three heats
wore traveled. There seems to bo n sus
picion among Onllne's admirers that Driver
Chandler ran against a combination of east
ern drivers , who were out for no other pur
pose than to down the fast little brown stallion.
However tlila may be , Online showed a won
derful speed , and with more careful driving
he might have easily won first Instead of
BillPaxton's pacer , Two Strikes , won
second money In the free-for-all at Janes-
vllle , WIs. , last Friday , winning ono heat
In 2:14. : , The best time In the race was 2:12. :
nilly also won second money In the 2:20 :
class trot with Mary , bay mare , by McCulla-
more. Mary landed tlio second heat In
2:21 : % and made a new record for herself.
Paxton has a good string this season and
expects to largely Increate his Htuble earn-
The laat day of the races at Syracuse was
full of excitement nnd the 2:33 : trot had the
appearance ot u hippodrome. The driver of
Julia L was unseated In the fifth heat and
Van Aukcri was put up behind her , but she
waa evidently weary and could be landed
no bettor than In second place In the two
succeeding heats nnd fourth In the final heat ,
In the fourth heat Glassware , a bay mare
owned by Nathan Strauss of New York , broke
her hind left leg juat after the horses were
sent off. H snapped like the report of a
pistol. She won the- preceding heut and was
the favorite In the pool selling. The animal
was valued at 13,000 and It Is not decided
whether to keep her for breeding purposes
or to kill her.
There has been some fine racing at IluN
falo dUrlnc the pait week , but the records
liaro not been smashed o recklessly its they

plain that the fields ot starter * nro getting

An eastern paprr describes the. course ot

Is undergoing whllo being fitted for the

the throngs at Old Orchard beach every

queen of the trotting turf , Martha Wllkes.
For some time Martha has not been In lit

WlRgln , Is confident that ho has located the
trouble , and Is now preparing her for the
fall campaign , In order to mueclo her up
In good shape Mr , Wlggln gives Martha
Wllkes n , swim In the ocean every day.
This Is a new thing In the preparation of
the trotting horse , but the plan has been
used successfully with the runners. Kvcry
day Martha Is led to the beach , where a
dory Is ready. Mr. Wiggins sits In the
end of the boat with the halter rope In his
hand , nnd the great mnro Is walked along
till deep water Is reached , whoi > she Is com
pelled to swim. The first lesson was n
tough ono. The cx-queon had never been
In swimming , nnd bellowed and tugsed at
the haller In vain attempts to reach solid
footing. After the first lesson the mare
took n fancy to her new training duties , nnd
Is ns eager as a child to get Into water.
After the lesson she paws the beach Im
patiently and tries to get back. This klni
ot excrclso Is proving very beneficial. She
has developed her muscles wonderfully. "

Wffl WEEK OF LAWN TENNIS
Arrangement ! Making for the Forthcoming
Interstate Tournament ,
AN EXPERIMENT ON A LARGE SCALE
Onmlin Club Offer * lnn ! | rd * of 8130 In
1'rltM mid lUpecM I'liijcr * from AJl
Surrounding Slnlm , with it
Contingent from lovm.
No stone Is liclnR left unturned by these
who Imvo the ninttor In hand
, not only to
make n success of the Interstate lawn tennis
toiirnilnicnt that Is billed for the courts of
the Onmha club week nfter next , but to ,
nmko such n record on thnt occasion tl\at \ In
future yonrs. when the event Is repeated , ,
thcro will bo no trouble In making It annually
ono of thp leadlnK events of the kind In tha
western country. Already. although It Is too
early to make any very definite statement
as to who will bo present , promises have
been received from enough outsiders to ninka
a very brilliant success of the meeting.
Very energetic committees have been at
work for a week now In ono way and an
other soliciting subscriptions and In ono way
or another looking up an Interest In th
city. Nearly 100 merchants and other promi
nent citizens have already put down their
names as palrons and enough money has boon
guaranteed to enable the club to offer some
valuable prizes. First and second prizes
will bo given In each event gentlemen's sin
gles and gentlemen's doubles. The winner
of the singles will get a cup valued at not
less than $50 and the winners In the
doubles will be given a pair of silver punqh
ladles , valued at $35. The second prizes In
each event will also bo of considerable mon6-
Monday , August 20 , Is the day for the
opening of the event , and the Intention
Is to nil In the week with a series of
matches that will exceed In the standard
of play and In the Interest that will b.o
taken us to the result anything that has
over been scon In Omaha , If not In the
country west of the Mississippi river.
Hitherto tbo Interest that has been mani
fested by the general public In thu tourna
ments that have been held In Omaha has
been limited by tlio almost absolute cer
tainty with which the winner could bo
picked out In advance. This tournament lias
been arranged with the Idea of bringing
together a collection of players who aru
not only unknown to the public of the city ,
but who do not even know each other's
prowess , at any rate with any degree of
IOWA'S LARGE DELEGATION.
Thcro will bo a large contingent from
Iowa , the town of Lemars alone being ro
lled upon to furnish several experienced
and doughty competitors for the honors that
will accrue to the winners of the two events.
Kansas City has promised at least ono
team , Denver Is expected to bo represented
and among the other cities which have been
heard from and which nro expected to send
a delegate or two ore Lawrence , Kan. ,
Cheyenne and ono or two South Dakota
towns. In addition to all these several
players In Chicago have already been In
communication with the managers of the
tournament , and the secretary Is also In
negotiation with the St. I'aul club , which
has a tournament billed for the preceding
week , with a view to Inducing some of the .
men who take part In that event to come
on to Omaha.
Exactely how many Nebraskons will enter
Is not very certain , but there will bo very
little missing In the way of quality. 0 , S.
Culllngham fully expects that his hand will
have sufllclently recovered by the time the
date for the opening comes around to en
able , him to participate. Ho has been
through a long siege , or what Is" as bad
as a siege , but the wound la now practically
healed , and If ho can only recover his
strength sufllclently in the next two weeks
ho should bo able not only to bo a com
petitor , but to uphold the honor of Ne
braska against the outsiders who will bo
present. At present , however , he Is weak
and much run down In health. Hey Austin ,
of course , will bo on hand , and will beabla
at any rate to show that this state has
some talent In the tennis way. Hicks
and probably ono or two others
will como down from * Lincoln If they carry
out their present Intentions. Hastings will
send down ono or two men , If not more , and
It Is not at all unlikely that some new
men , from other cities In the state , who
have not been seen on the Omaha courts
before , will bo here.
Intending competitors niro asked to remem
ber that their entries should bo made as
soon as possible to Mr. CJeorgo Haverstlck ,
at C30 South Twentieth street , Omaha , who
has been appointed secretary of the tourna
ment committee. Entrance fees are Jl for
the singles and $1 per team for the doubles.
TO ENTERTAIN VISITORS.
Arrangements arc being made to ensure
that all visitors will be well entertained
during the week they arc hero. Most of
the leading hotels of the city have granted
.specially cheap rates for them and ovfiry-
thlng possible Is being done by the club
members to make the expenses of their
guests as light as possible and to ensure
that , these who Intend to make the week
a part of their vacation , will bo so well
satisfied with themselves and more especially
with their guests , that they will make up
their minds on the spot to come again next
year. It Is felt by all that are In any way
concerned In the affair that this Is an ex
periment and that great application Is neces
sary for the next three weeks , that Is until
the tournament Is over , to make a success
of the meeting In luturo years. Much mora
effort IB needed to make a reputation for a
tennis tournament , as for other things , than
to maintain It when It has once been es
Hut It Is not only the players who nro to
be well looked after. The club Intends to , "
accommodate a largo number of spectators '
during the week that the play Is In progress ,
and If the Omaha public has any love fdr " '
the sight of a really scientific exhibition of
n game that If carefully watched has as
much In It to Interest them ax any game
they could go * to see , thcro Is no doubt but
they will turn out In full force. Season
tickets good as long as the tournament lasts
can bo purchased for $1 , Additional seats
are being provided and other matters are
under consideration with a. view to making
the courts an attraction during th'o after
noons and evenings for ladles and gentlemen
who have no other pressing engagements , !
If the following list of patrons , which Is
not complete even up to date , can bo taken
as any criterion of the Interest that the
city Is taking In the efforts of the club to
make a immu for Omaha among tennis players
ors that they will remember and that will
bring to the city annually a larger and
larger number of lending western players ,
thcro Is no danger of their efforts falling ,
