There Is one sign that doesn't fall , even
In dry weather. Whenever a crowd of pople
leave a base ball ground determined not to
go the next day , disgusted with the listless ,
Indifferent losing game , the succeeding name
Is always a hummer. That's the way It
was yesterday , and Omaha won one of tha
very prettiest contests of the season.
Connlo Strothers had a German phenom
enon , Count Sasle ! , In the box , and Omaha
made him dizzy before the first Inning was
over. Ulrich opened with a single , Langs-
ford followed with a double , Seery got a base
on balls , and then Georgle McVey , the boy
wonder , was paraded for Inspection. Time
was called while Umpire McKelvoy presented
the baiter with a.floral offering from ad
miring friends. The bouquet was one of the
kind that does not nesd Irrigation , the Mow
ers being the product of a tinted paper fac
tory at Beaver Dam. Congratulations were
hardly over when a nice , new ball was let
lose by Count Single and lost by the boy
wonder In the weeds over on the river bottom
tom , and three runs were scored , McVey
coming home un Hutchison's two-bugger
over right field fence. Hourke got a base
on halls , Pcdroes fanned and Fear doubled
Papa at second on a little drlv ? to Devlnnoy.
Jacksonville's drat three men were thrown
out at first by Mr. Lnngsford.
Omaha was satlalled with Its lead until the
fifth Inning , when Pa told the boys to add
a few more to the string. Langaford was
retired by Dummy Smith's throw to first , and
then Story folded his arms and watched
Sfagle slide four wide ones out of reach.
McVey rapped out a single , and scored with
Seery on Hutchison's second two-sackcr , a
lone drive Into right center. Hourke sin
gled , and Hutchison scored on Pedroas' two-
isacker over the left field fence. Fear and
Whltehlll Hew out.
Connie's men should never have seen the
homo plate In the game , but they did. After
Dovlnney had been retired by McVey , singles
were made by Snyder and Siagle. Uourke's
fumble ot Letcher's easy one to right let
Snyder to third , and he scored on a passed
'ball. ' Newman was lilt by the pitcher and
Smith drove a long one toward the barn
that looked so safe that Lstcher started for
homo. Uourke saved the fly by a splendid
catch , and retired the side by a splendid
throw which caught Letcher at second.
Omaha ntlded a run In the third on Ul-
'rlch's two-sacker and Langsford's single , and
made U more binding In the eighth when
three runs were made by Langsford's homer ,
Sqery's base by the pitcher's kindness , and
doublesby Hutchison and McVey. This
was- enough , and the boys let it go at that.
A single by Smith , a sacrifice by Strauss
and Strothers' double gave the Jaxs their
third and tlnal run. A glance at the score
will show how the job was done :

ST. JOSEPH. Mo. , Aug. 15. ( Special Tele
gram' to Thu llee. ) Rock Island won today
by hitting Ilrlstow's curves very hard nnd
bunching the hits. The Saints could not
Ilnd Mauck , and the four hits f.ecured were
.too scattered to do any good. The game
was remarkable for the line fielding done
by both teams and fast play throughout.

LINCOLN. Aug. 13.-Speclal ( Telegram to
The Bee. ) Beam acted today as though he
had never heard of such a thing ns a home
plate , and although but live hits were made
off him he lost the game by his phenome
nally wild twirling. Lincoln didn't earn a
slnglo run of her seven , but the game was
carefully packed away to her credit Just

It is very apparent that the local manage
ment wants to redeem Its promise of early
spring nnd give Omaha as good un article
of base ball as the most fastidious crank
could ask. There Is no better fielding team
In the league today , McVey , Hutchison ,
Ulrich and Liuigsford almost make a stone
wall nround the diamond. Their work has
been the delight of the patrons ot the game.
Pcdroes , Seery and Rourke have attended
to the outfield in first-class style. As to
hitting well , ask some of the pitchers who
have faced the Hourkes this season what
they think of it. In the box Omaha has
been weak all season. Mornn and .Fear
have done their part of the battery work
as well as any Flint or Ewlng , but the
pitchers there's where the trouble has
been , Whltehlll has done line work , even
when doing more than his share , but he
has been Omaha's standby. Boxendale and
McMackln were failures ; Camp's health
failed ; Claussen was jailed ; Nenl's arm
gave out , and Lookabaugh has not been In
form since he joined the. team. But Papa
Bill has made a move that will endear him
to the cranks. He has secured McGlll of
Chicago Willy Billy of Cincinnati fame-
through an especial deal with President Jim
Hart , nnd today will present him with
Moran as the battery. This being ladles'
day , there will doubtless be a splendid
turnout. It Is certain that If Captain Mac
doesn't make ? It two out of three the Jaxs
wilt wotk harder- than they ever did In
Douglas county. The teams ;

ANITA , la. . Aug. 13.-To the Sporting
Editor of The Bee : There Is some doubt
about the decision of an umpire hero lii li
game of base ball. The pitcher Is standing
In the box , In position. A base runner on
second bane steals third while the pitcher
Is delivering the ball. It Is n passed ball ,
but It passes the catcher before the runner
reaches third base. Runner then ran home
on the same passed ball. If the catcher
had caught the ball he could not throw It
In time to catch the runner at third. The
umpire sent the runner back to third base.
( Umpire was wrong. Unless expressly
stipulated and agreed upon between the
captains , a. base runner Is entitled to one
base on any passed ball that strikes an ob
struction within ninety feet of the home
plate , und ns mnny more ns he can get. )

Itallroad Commissioner..JOSEPH FLOIU
Before the convening of the republican state
convention this morning ths Kansas Cltj
delegation went Into caucus and adopted a
resolution declaring for Colonel L. II
Waters for temporary chairman , Major
Warner's name not being mentioned. He-
fore reaching an agrcsment , however , an ad
journment was taken to the convention hnll.
The hnll , which was profusely decorated ,
wns packed two hours In advance of the
mooting of the convention , which wns set
for 11 o'clock. Chauncsy I. Fllley and Major
William Warner were heartily cheered upon
entering the hall. Although both nssertct1
the convention would be harmonious , several
lights were known to b ; on the tapis , and a
lively time was anticipated.
Promptly nt noon Chairman Uothwcll of
the state central committee called the con
vention to order. There were DIG delegates
After much wrangling , Colonel Warner
was finally decided upon for temporary chair
man. The hour of convening the convention
having besn delayed , was re-set for noon on
account of the fight. Colonel Walters will bo
made permanent chairman.
With a few Introductory remarks , Chair
man Ilothwcll presented Major William War
ner of Kansas City , as temporary chairman.
Major Warner spoke as follows :
In the political tidal wave that swept over
the country two years ago we In Missouri
were defeated , but we kept our powder
dry and today with renewed energy nnd In
creased confidence we are "standing up for
Missouri. " The republican states that
went after false gods In IS'JL' , after the bit
ter experiences of two years of bouibon ,
popullstlc and anarchistic misrule , while
feeding upon the husks of financial ruin
and living amidst prostrated Industries
blighted by the mildew of democracy , now
realize that In leaving the republican party
they sinned against light and reason ,
against their homes and the republic and
are anxiously awaiting the opening of the
ballot box In November to bring forth fruit
meet for repentance. They will return to
the republican party the secure haven of
Amcilcun Industries , American dlnnnces ,
American prosperity , American homes and
American public schools.
That tidal wave brought to the surface an
Incongruous crew of democratic statesmen.
They seized upon the olllces and manned
the old ship of state , throwing overboard
the republican chart and compass under
which It had weathered many a storm.
The old ship drifted aimlessly about on the
troubled waters of democracy. Its Incon
gruous crew have been and are still in a
state oC mutiny , while the ship Is hope
lessly floundering in the trough of political
discord. The success of the democracy In
running the ship of state has only been
equalled by that of the 'traditional bull
running a china shop. That party has
demonstrated that its capacity for blunder
ing is greater than its bitterest enemy ever
dared to predict. Democracy ns a theory
may In ; tolerated , but as a condition is hard
to endure.
As surely as the tidal wave of democracy
passed over this country In November , ISO : ; ,
so surely will a cyclone of republicanism
sweep the country In November , 1891. For
the Ilrst time since 1SG1 the people in 1SC !
Intrusted to the democratic party the exec
utive nnd legislative departments of the
government. Instead ot managing thesu
two great department ! ) In union for the
common good , they have been waging war
each against the other ; Instead of being
friends , they arc Implacable enemies. The
power with which the people clothed the
democracy for good ban been used only
for evil and that continually. The power
intrusted to Its hands luiH been used with
less wisdom than was the strength given to
the blind Sampson of old.
Kvery promise made by that party two
years ago has been broken. It went Into
power pledged to the free coinage of silver
nnd death to the "robber tariff. " Its
first legislative act at the command of
Wall street was to blast nil hopes of placing
silver nnd gold on a parity. Instead of
giving to the people free coinage , as
pledged , it established a gold standard as
the only measure of values. Its president
was no sooner elected than he became the
champion of monometallism and the Im
placable enemy of bimetallism.
The democratic party In Its puerile at
tempts at tariff reform has been governed
by a spirit of sectionalism and Incompe-
tency. As clay In the hands of the potter ,
It has been the pliant tool of gigantic trusts ,
corporations and monopolies.
' Its foreign policy has brought a blush of
shame to the cheek of every true American.
Wo have seen an accredited minister of
this country to n friendly power present his
credentials with oily words of friendship
while he wns the bearer of secret instruc
tions to aid In the overthrow of that gov
ernment to the end that an effete and cor
rupt monarchy might be restored. Wo have
seen the chief executive turn his back upon
a brave people struggling toward a repub
lican form of government while he showed
his sympathy for the discarded monarchy.
The conduct of the State department has
made this people , irrespective of party , long
for thf return of that spirit of American
ism that characterized our foreign policy
under the genius of that greatest of Amer
icans , James G. Blainc.
We hi've fcoen the party In power attempt
to dishonor the brave men who placed their
bodies a living wall between the Hag of our
country nnd those who would tear It down.
Tens of thousands of honest pensioners ,
whose claims have been adjudicated In the
tribunal provided by the government , have
been arbitrarily stricken from the pension
list , the nation' " roll of honor , without the
poor privilege of a hearing , a privilege
granted to the lowest criminal In the land.
This arbitrary action , this crime against
fair play , aroused the sense of justice of
the American people , compelling the com
missioner of pensions to restore to the roll ,
with few exceptions , the names he had ar
bitrarily and wrongfully stricken there
from. But this was not done unlll they
had undergone the cheese-paring process of
the Boldler-hatlng knife.
The Inability of the democratic party to
solve the problem of government Is what
might have been expected from Its past
history. For n score or more years , before
it came Into power. In 1892 , It had been a
party of negation , a party of obstruction.
There Is not a law upon thu statute books
of the nation enacted since 1801 which has
contributed to the wondrous growth nnd
prosperity ot the republic that did not at
the time of Its enactment meet the blind
opposition of the democratic party. To the
cur of national prosperity It has always
been n brake and never a propelling force.
The. control of the legislative und execu
tive 'departments ) of the government brought
their attendant responsibilities , responsibili
ties that the democratic party was unable
to meet. la had no creative genius for
legislation. lit ) old habits of negation anil
obstruction clung to It. The people , ever
quick to detect Imbecility and Incompeteney
In their servants , have long since lost con
fidence In the dominant party. This \aia \ at
confidence has produced a paralysis of bus
iness , a stringency of the currency und a
shrinkage of values heretofore unknown In
the history of this country. The democratic
party has been welshed In the balance of
public opinion and has been found wanting.
The verdict of the people Is made up. That
verdict will bo placi'd In the ballot box
next November. When read , It will bo no
tice to tin- democratic party that Tom
Reed will be the next speaker of the house
of representatives and that the next presi

our Missouri , the brightest star In tha gal

racy. "
A resolution wns Introduced by Colonel
t""ii of St. Louis on the A. P. A. as fol
lows :
m inlvotl , That the republican party of
Missouri , speaking for Us tlmo-honorod
principles , Uti tolerance , Its genius and the
Institutions of the American people as laid
down by the framers of the constitution ,
deplores and condemns any attempt made
under whatever guise or secret organiza
tions , that has for Its purpose the Inaugu
ration of religious bitterness nnd dlsson-
Hlon In the political affairs of our country.
Resolved , That the democratic party em
phatically declares against the Importation
of such fornlqn doctrines to our midst ; and
such oath-bound organizations under what
ever name , whoso secret professions nro
hostile to the religious beliefs of any to-
llglous denomination nr church organisation
and we declare that no such secret organi
zation shall have the- countenance of the
republican party. Be It further , *
Resolved , That the republican parly of
Missouri repudiates the participation or af
filiation or religion with thu politics of this
country. The constitution of the United
Stntes , the supreme law of our country ,
utult'r which we have become the greatest
nation of the world , forbldw the Inter
ference with any man In his worship of
God , according to the dictates of his con
After the selection of committees the
convention adjourned until 4 o'clock.
During the recess the real work of the
convention was done. The committee on
credentials had a light to decide a contest
from the Thirteenth wurd In St. Louis , but
It did not take long to settle It , nnd Dr.
Stark nnd his delegation were seated. The
committeeon permanent organization agreed
on Colonel L. II. Waters of Kansas City
for permanent chairman und William Ilobha
of St. Louis for permanent secretary.
With the committee on resolutions , however -
over , all did not go so smoothly. First
the silver plank caused untold trouble. The
chairman of tlio committee , Nathan Frank
of St. Louis , was said to be opposed to the
silver clement , but a majority of the com
mittee was composed of silver men , nnd
they carried the day.
Another stumbling block was met In the
shape of a 'resolution Introduced by Hlchard
C. Kerens of St. Louis tacitly condemning
the A. P. A. Then a long-continued fight
was waged. The A. P. A. had representa
tives on the resolutions committee , and as
soon as the Kerens resolution was presented
the combat began. Inasmuch as Mr. Kerens
declared that ho would hold out Indefinitely
for the adoption of his resolution the pros
pect of an early report was not good.
The convention reassembled at 1 p. in.
nnd the report of tlio committees on cre
dentials and permanent organization were
presented anil adopted. Nominations : For
supreme judge , Hen. W. M. Robinson of
Jasper county ; for superintendent of public
instruction , J. R. Kirk of Jackson county ;
for railroad commlsoliner , Joseph Flory of
St. Louis. Then c.ime the selection of a
chairman of the state central committee , and
Chaimccy I. Fllloy of St. Louis wns unanl-
innuslv nominated with a hurrah.
At 8:20 : the committee on resolutions sent
word to tlic convention that they would not
be ready to rcrort for three hours. The dfl-
egates became tired of waiting and n motion
to adjourn until S:30 o'clock was carried.
After sitting In continuous session seven
hours the committee on resolutions could
reach no agreement on the American Pro
tective association question. The religious
Question would not down until in despera
tion the committee sat down on both the
American Protective associalion members
nnd those who wanted to insert a plank con
demning that organization. At 10:30 : Chair
man Frank appeared with the platform.
He was greeted with cheers as he proceeded
to read It. Knell plank was well received.
At the last moment Colonel Kerens wns pre
vailed upon to permit tlio American Protec
tive association question to remain In the
shade nnd did not carry out his purpose to
bring war Into tlic convention. After the
adoption of the platform Ch.iuncey I. Fllley
of St. Louis addressed the convention. A
the conclusion of Mr. Filley'si remarks the
convention adjourned sine dlo.
The report of the committee on resolutions ,
which was unanimously adopted , declares :
The democratic party has been In con
trol of this government for a period of the
past eighteen months , nnd during that time
a condition confronts the country that beg-
ifars description nnd causes the people to
look to the future of our nation witli dis
trust and undisguised alarm. Therefore ,
the republicans of the state of Missouri
present the following declaration of prin
ciples :
Wo again declare , for a syrtem of pro
tective duties , adjusted so that every Amer-
can resource can be developed by American
labor , receiving American w.ifes , and we
nslst. upon n tariff that will accomplish
these ends. We have but to mention the
llsnstrous results that have followed the
mere mennco of free trade ns conclusive
evidence of the wisdom of the republican
policy In the past upon this subject.
Wo favor the enactment of laws that will
iruhlhlt the immigration of anarchists anil
Ipinand the strict enforcement of the Im
mlcratlon laws.
We rcafllrm the unswerving devotion of
Missouri republicans to the supreme , sov
ereign right of every qualified volcr , richer
or poor , native or foreign born , black 01
white , to cast the free ballot In the public
election , and to have that ballot counted
ns cast , nnd wo condemn nil Impediments ,
under cover of law , preventing qualified
voters from depositing their ballots nnd
laving them counted.
We extend to the people of Hawaii In
; holr struggle to establish and maintain
Iberal and free Institutions for tholr gov
ernment our hearty sympathy , and we as
sure them that the conduct of the present
idmlriistratlnn In Its endeavors to force
upon them by hostllo means a corrupt and
semi-barbarous monarchy doM not meet
with the approval of the American people.
Wo declare that the Interests of nil the
> eoplo demand that every dollar , paper or
coin. Issued by the eovi'riunent , shall be as
good as any other dollar.
Wo favor the largest possible colnago of
silver that Is consistent with the permanent
malntonanco of pqiml mirohn-dng rind ilcbt-

Wo do nnt want monometallism of ollhor

continue the work for. bimetallism , to bo

Your enthusiasm gives hopeful signs of
Coming sucoss. Surely the gloomy foro-
bodlngs and PI-OIWKOM of defeat heralded
lu the opposition PIUHI-M has had but lit-
tie olToot.
. } , V ° . , " ' ' ' . niet under peculiar conditions ,
still UglitliiK the battle of the people to
relieve them from the burdens of u sys
tem of taxation created a Kcncrntlnn ngo
through the noconilllos of war- burdens
then placed under tin ; promise that so
mum as peace reigned relief should come.
Wo came Into possession of the govern
ment , but with ii dnplotod and empty
treasury , nml crippled and embarrassed also
through the ontulluro of uxtriivagant ap
propriations leitohlmt beyond the close of
republican control cif public affairs and
forcing upon tholr successors the passngo
of dellcloncy bills ami IsMtianci- bonds
to maintain the credit and honor of the
government. Decoptlvo and corrupt poli
cies and reckless extravagance In the administration -
ministration of government through publlo
olllclnls seriously niTt'ot the morals
and Integrity of n peuplo nnd encourage
like conditions In the iiiun.igrmciit of the
private affairs ) of the citizens. The result ! )
have been witnessed In ( ho widespread
financial and commercial depression that
swept over the country. An.l now wo
see n once great party socking to escape
public condcmimtlnn for Its mischievous
policy , and still deceiving a long suffering
people by charging those results to thu
accession of the democratic party.
One by one the democratic pledge * nro
being redeemed through the heroic effortH
of our rcpri'seiilnllvcH In congress. The
iniquitous and unjust federal election law
has fallen benmth our sturdy blows , the
promise to repeal the silver purchasing
clause of the Sherman act IIIIH been ful
filled , ami the belief rnneted Into law that
no special or prlvllcind class of property
shall escape Its just share of the burden
of tnx. The struggle must bo brave and
earnest , for the lIcrciMt opposition Is to bo
encountered along the lino. Siege has
been laid to the sltonghnld of republican
ism Its protective ttirllf mid the day of
a broad commercial freedom Is surely dawn
ing upon us. Step by step wo light our
way , camping un cvory vantage ground ,
until we shall stand amid thu purpling
heights of victory won and succes ; )
achieved. Wo may nut In the present
measure and through the present congress )
secure nil that may bo desired , but It IH
just as sure ud night shall follow the day
all legislation that may give relief In thu
direction of true tarlir u-form Is to re
main upon the statutes fixed nnd secure.
It may bo added to ami advanced , but It
will never more bo tak"ii from or moved
backward , it matters nnt whether ( ho re
publican or the democratic party may bo
In the ascendancy. True tariff foform.
a broad commercial frtedum , a rovenuu
taxation based upon oiconomic oxiwncll-
turc has como lo sot IN heal upon nil
future legislation of the government.
No grander opportunity was ever pre
sented to n political party than that
placed within the roach of the demo
cratic party. We Mini ! earnestly oppose
and bravely meet mi open , honest foe ,
who , by Inheritance and teachings , may
never have been with or for us. Jtnt
those who are nu'rchliu : undur the banners
of democracy almnlonlng democratic prin
ciples and forgetting the sacred cause of
the people , would place obstacles In the
way of localizing tlio great national truths
of government , let th > m bcwaro of the In
dignation of an amused and outraged
party. Where President Cleveland , trusted
lender , shall lead wo shall bo brnvo enough
to follow. The democratic party has nt
times suffered doiVat lu the past , and may
meet temporary defeat in the ! future , but
it never surrender. The line marked
out by President Cleveland In his mes-
K.igo of 1SS7 end Ills recent letter to Con
gressman \Vllson , th" platform In 1891' .
will be strictly mlhc-ied to and followed
until a complete tevlslon and reform In
national taxation Is attained' The ninsPuH
of the democratic party are honest and de
mand that their leaders shall be honest
and faithful to the trust Imposr-d upon
thorn. Through storm and through sun-
slilno the democratic party has been the
poMlstent friend , able advocate nnd bravo
defender of silver. I do not hcllevij the
day has come when we propose or .can
afford , In the Interest of the people , to
turn our backs upon this metal. H la
an Important product of the country , and
from the days of uur fathorH down through
all the wondrous and amazing growth of
our country wo luivo found it a useful ,
safe , valuable medium of circulation ,
At the conclusion of Oovernor Mntthows'
speech the platform was read nnd ndopted.
It endorses the record of the democratic
party In Indiana , .anil continues : "Wo iimrre
our opposition to the vicious system of clnsfj
legislation miscalled protection nnd pledge
ourselves to continue tlio battle against It
until eviry species of extortion and robbery
fostered by the McKlnley act slnll bo ob
literated from our rcvntie system , and Hie
people enjoy nil the blessings of commercial
liberty. We denounce- tariff protection of
cvory kind ns a fraud end robbery of the
great American people for the b'neflt of
a few. We maintain that no tariff * tnx
should bo levied except for purposes of
revenue , und that such tnxts should bo lim
ited to the necessities of the government ,
honestly nnd economically administered.
