Llttlo 'Dllly ' Traffley randl tils band of
Iioodoos wcro cooked again yesterday out aU
tlio park by the valiant willow wtclders
of McVey. The -Ramo was not very bril
liant , but ovcry known base ball term , with
the exception of a double play , was fully
represented. The bright particular feature
of tha game was the umpiring of Colonel
Haslcell , who for the Ufa of him did not
appear able to tell the difference between a
ball and a strike. Some of his decisions
caused the rabble lo jear and hoot , but his
beautifully modulated voice never shook.
Whltehlll rotated tor the home team , but
the enemy jumped upon Ills tortuous curves
with delightful vim. 'The son of the north ,
Jamleson , was put in during Ihe seventh
and wa lilt only four times , but he helped
them out with four bases on balls. Mc.Mackln
waa In the box for the visitors and was lilt
hard. There Is very lltlle use In giving a
detailed account of the score. Each team
made twenty-one hits and runs came In al
most every Inning. The game was a , see
saw throughout , arul It was only In the last
Inning that we pounded out the seven runa
that cinched lit The errors of several of the
team were sickening and In the sixth. Inning
III11I7 Moran went to sleep and let McFad-
den and Traffley make a double steal. Score :

RACE 1IEETINC AT RUSH PARIt
Entorpiisinir Business Men at Independence
Revive ilin Famous Williams Kite.
FIVE DAYS OF SPORT PROVIDED FOR
Jinny rirnt Home * Will ( lo After tlio Lib

Silicic. Igr Allx.
A great racing- meeting will begin tomorrow
afternoon at Hush park , Independence , la. ,
on the trnck mmlc famous by the rise anil
fall ot Charley Williams. This"la the kite-
shaped track which first attracted the at
tention of harness horsemen toward the west
and especially Iowa , and Is the bit of turf
which will always bo'connected with the
names of Axtcll and Allerton. Williams
made the ( rack and town , spending$2pO.OOO
for that purpose , but reverses came he
tried to do too- much and ho Is now manager
and part owner of a track over at Galesburg ,
III. The track which ho built at Independ
ence is probably the finest kite-shaped course
ever constuclcd , and besides bringing out
the fastest clip of the trotters antl pacers ,
gives horses a tiptop record , something
desired by every breeder and owner. When
Williams broke up In business It was given
out that there would bo no more great racing
meetings In , Iowa , but a number of enter
prising citizens thought differently , and they
formed themselves Into the Independence
Driving Park association , and during the
next five- days they propose to show that
'ho spirit of Williams goes marching on In
that town , just the same as when tha noted
horseman waa at the zenith of his turf glory ,
The officers of the new association have or-
ranged a program of twenty-one trotting
and pacing racea for purses aggregating
$25,000. The money Is nil on deposit In ono
ot the local banks , and when , the winners
are announced from tha judges' stand Ihi
owner can go to the secretary of tjie as
sociation and get his check ( or the amount
he Is entitled to. Such men as Charley
Thompson , Zach Stout and A. II. Farwell
have charge of the affairs ot the association
and they have secured 400 entries for this
meeting , among whom there are 130 nnlmals
with marks below 2:20. : Thirty-two last
horses from. Nebraska are entered and they
will glvo the hdrses of the Hawkeyc state
a hot chase for the money In every event.
The managers have arranged Monday ns
their "BlueIllbbon day , " and will admit the ,
ladles free on that day. They have secured
reduced rates on the railroads , and will
have a special attraction In the shape of
a fine horse show In "ie of the largo stables
In the paddock. Tha racing will continue fet
flvo days , and there will bo four events on
each day's program , so that the people wll
get their money's worth. Another tlitnjj the
managers have done , which will be ap
preciated by the public. Is that they have
fixed the price of admission at 50 cents anc
this admits any person to all parts of the
grand stand or grounds , except the quarter
stretch , which Is reserved for the owners
and horsemen who are specially Interested In
tha meeting. All the managers need now
to make this meeting ono of the most suc
cessful In the middle western states , Is
The Idol of the trotting turl , and. In fact ,
of every true turfman , Just at present , Is
"Sweet Little Allx. " the beautiful bay'mare
owned by Morris Jones of lied Oak , la. , nml
who Is now being cdlnpalgned with Monroe
Salisbury's speedy string of California horses.
The animal captures the hearts of loVers of
horseflesh at first glance because pi lier
docile , kittenish manner , her beauty of Jorm ,
being oneot the most perfectly formed ani
mals oiu the turfv and her pure gait when
she Is out In a race , as .v-cll as her game
qualities on the track. Probably , more In
terest Is centprert.ifln this little mar ? now
than -has cvar ( been glven < any other- turf
performer because 'of her ease In traveling a
mile at Washington park last-week In a raqe
In 2:05V4. : She beat the track record and
came with In a second and a quarter of
equaling Nancy Hank's mark of 2M ; ( , and
horsemen freely predict that Allx will , lower
that before the close of the season , In fact
Andy McDowell , her driver , has agreed to
flend her against the Nancy Hanks record
at Terre Haute sometime In the near future.
Allx Is one of the colts bred by Dan Hayes
of Muscatlne , nnd by him was sold to Morris
Jones In his Chicago sale In 1889. She repre
sents more crosses of Abdallah I. than any
other horse now on the turf. She took to
trotting naturally , and has never needed
the whip In any of her races , In fact Jones
avers that he never struck her wllli the
bud bul once , and that was to cure her of a
slight fault , which she has never repeated.
Allx , Nancy Hanks and Dlrectum arc the
only three trailers who have traveled as
fast as she did at Washington park. Du-
Bols , "Pa" Ilamlin , John Kelly and other
horsemen ure of the firm belief that the
track was from one and a halt to iwo seconds
ends slow , and predict that If she can find
as favorable circumstances for her trial to
break all records ns did Nancy Hanks at
Terre Haute sue will get a record of 2:03.
When Jones was In Omaha In Juno he pointed
to Ally's record uf 2:07 : % and said : "Allx
and I will lower that mark more than four
seconds before I put her Into her winter
Quarters. " Can the gallant little animal go
that fast !
Allx knocked a half second oft her Terre
Haute record of 2:05i. : made the second week
In August , at Washlnglon park last Monday
by traveling ah exhibition tnllo In 2:05'/i. :
The track was fully two- seconds slow when
she made the efforl. It had bcn announced
that she would go against Nancy Hanks' rec
ord of 2:04 : , but owing to tha unfavorable
conditions nnd slowness of the track , Mc
Dowell said lie would .only try ( o beat the
track record of 2OGU. : She reduced this
mark , a second , and finished strong and
fresh. She went the first , half In 1:03"4 : , and
thoii completed the mile in 1:02 : , and Mc
Dowell Is authority for the statement that
she could have beaten this time a full second
end If he had pushed her lo the talk , As
It IE , her'performance Is really more cred
itable than that of Nancy Hanks under the
most perfect cf conditions. The exact time
of 2:05 % has. been taade by three trotters.
Nancy Hanks trotted to that record at In
dependence , August 31 , 1892. Dlrectum did
his mile in the same time at Nashville Oc
tober 18 of last year , and Allx has now
slopped to the same figures. Before Allx
was started , ' C. J. Hamlln , owner of Fan
tnsy , a possible rival of Allx , remarked that
Allx nor any other trotter could make the
mile In less than 2:06 : % , Afterward he said :
"It was n grand performance , " with big
emphasis on the "grand. " and repeated ! "A
grand performance , most decidedly. The con *
dltlons. were not the best , but certainly bet
ter than liad she gone earlier In tha day. "
The consensus of opinion evcrywhere among
horsemen was that the track was slow , much
slower than at Terre Haute , and while her
performance Monday did not compare ;
with her race record , It was rated as among
the very best , If not actually the bbst , miles
ever trotted against time.
Billy Paxlon's Two Strikes was In a hot
race lu the 2:11 : pace at Wathlngctn pirk
on Wednesday , He ktarled In the race as n
poor choice for place , but after the first' heat
the pools sold on him were 1 to 3 for place.
and once It looked as If he was going to win ,
but his rival , Fldol , was too strong a finisher ,
und won the race In straight heats , but had
to be driven to thC limit In each heat to beal
the Omaha horse. Two Strikes pushed Tldol
under the wire In tha secnd brut In i':10Vi : ,
nnd lost by less than half a length. Coler
idge , one of the eastern crackcrjacks , was
drawn from this race , and It was thdughl
that Fldol would have -walkaway for the
big end of the purse. In. the flrsr. after
Hockcr had carried the- favorite to t'.id
of tlie stretch , Fulliigui brought Two Strikes
along with a ruih en the outside , anil JUven-
burg had to go to the whip , and saved the
heht for Fldol by but a length , In 2:14. The
finish and the time made U look as 1C Fidel's
speed had been overestimated , but he ei
all doubts at rest In the Becnd heat by lying
close to his flelil to the bead of the stretch
and then ulepplng homo In 0'305i , with the
Nebraska horse a hot second.

NKW YOIIK. Aug. 25. Futurlly day was
an Ideal day for a summer oullng. The
brtezo came In from the sea ; It was cooi and
comfortnbloi nnd one of Ihobest days for
racing In a month. About 25,000 persons
were present at the Coney Island Jockey
club track. Long before the first race was
run the bookmakers began lo lay odds
against the starters In the Futurity. Butter
files was the choice by n largo majority , and
C to G was the best price obtainable on her ,
closing at 4 to 6 odds on , The others ranged
from G to 1 against Monaco , H union and
The first betting was made at that
tlmo and was as follows : Waltzer , JO to 1 ;
nultcrflles , 6 lo 5 ; Sadie , 30 lo 1 ; Salvation ,
30 to 1 ; Gutla Percha , 20 lo 1 ; Agllalor , 12

Brandywlne , 10 to 1 ; Cromwell , 25 to 1 ;
Counter Tenor , 7 to 1 ; Manchester , 10 to 1 ;
Connolrcur , 8 to 1 ; Monaco , 4 lo Ij St.
Veronica and Bombazolle , no betting.
Turf lovers were out bright and early
and with anxious eyes scanned the horizon
to find any Indication of unruly elements
that might Interfcn with the day's sport.
A shadow crept over their faces as numerous
dark clouds appeared In the heavens and
the dampness of the utmogphero fanned
their countenances. However , these un-
picpltlous signs did not deter them from
getting an early start for Shecpshcad
Bay and every .boat for Coney Island after
the .dawn of day was well filled with people
anxious to secure a favorable seat from
which the great Futurity race might bs
seen. The Indications were for a record at

la the featureof the year In the racing
line , from a financial standpoint , it la
wcrth a forluno lo Iho winner belween $50-
000 and $60,000. In fact. It Is also a bl ( *
bitting race. Every horse In the race had
a financial following and probably $600,000
will change hands on the result. The liorscs
without exception wore on the razor's edge
of condition. There were fifteen horses
named as starlcrs , and , as Iho owner of
each horse had to pay 4370 for the privilege
of starting , they must all have considered
that their own horses had a fair chance of
bringing In UID cold. Leading sportsmen
and the morning papers were almost unani
mous in declaring Gideon & Daly's Butter
flies to be the favorite , because of her
previous trials and the position of her
owters. She sold favorite In the Louisville
pools last night' . Among the others who
received popular support , however , were
Iluppert's Counter Tenor , O. II. "Belmont's
Drandywlne , Dr. Knapp'o California , Gideon
& Daly's Wallzar and Louis Stuart's

HOW THE FILLY WON IT.
The race was called al 4:20 : , but Ihe delay
al the post seemed Interminable. Break
after break was made , After fifty mlnutoa
delay they wore senl away lo a good alart ,
Butterflies ahead. In , front of California.
Down to the quarter polo they flashed , and ,
curious to relate , five flllles wcro leading
the field , and all looked to ha going well.
Butlerfims ahead. The pace was hot , and
soon began to falter. When the Jialf mlle
post was reached Butterflies had a load of
two-tcnlhs , and Griffin was looking back at
the others and easing his mount. Agitator ,
under the slrong urging of Taral , had come
up lo second place , and was a head In front
of Connossleur. Gutla Percha was fourlh
nnd California flflh. Around the turn Into
the main track they came with a mad rush ,
and while Dutlerflles seemed to be going
easily , the olhers were being urged to their
utmost to catch the fast flying filly. It
seemed to be all over but the shouting , when
suddenly a darky , wearing a maroon and
scarlel Jacket , astride of a beautiful chest
nut with a white Maze on his face nnd four
white feel , shot out of the bunch behind
and set sail for the apparently easy winner.
It was Drandywlne coming with the wind.
Griffin heard the thunder of his hoofs be
hind , and glancing back , saw the streak of
chestnut lighting , with Clayton riding like
mad , after him. There was no lime lo
wasle now , and dowi. t ie clever lightweight
Jockey sat , digging with his heels and rid
ing for dear life. He could help his mount
but little , for she waa tired now , and with
every Jump Brandywlne was catching her.
Now he Was at her tall ; then his white nose
was at her saddle , and Griffin saw It poked
under his eyes , and he had realized that ho
had to ride as hard as ho know how to land
the rich stakes for Gideon & Daly and win a
small fortune for the thousands who had bet
on the filly ho was riding. Inch by Inch the
colt was gaining on him. and ho was strain
ing his eyes for the finish , now only a few
yards away. A few moro jumps , and ( ho
Iftnlsli line was passed by a tired boy on a
tired filly , and the rich stakes were won by
a head. The crowd cheered the filly , but It
would have been , cheering the colt had the
race been fifty yarda farther. There was
plenty of cheering for G'lffln when he- came
back to be weighed , and all the way to the
paddock he waa carried. In a floral Jockey's
chair. Gideon & Daly were happy and BO
was the trainer , John Ilyland. for this added
one moro to the jnany rich stakes they have
won this season. Butlerflles Is a bay filly

lively for the Holders. Both these batsmen
commenced scoring rapidly , nor were they
separated before they had Increased the
score by thlrly-sevcn runs. Lnwrle , after
making two , vyas caught , and Doyle , with
sixteen lo his credit , was retired by an
easy ball from Douglas. O. II , Vaughan ,
with eight lo his credit , ami Uvason , with
five , "not out , " were the only others on the
side to moke decent scores. The last
wicket , -\7itli eight extras , fell for two runs
short of vhe century.
With ninety-eight runs staring him In the
face , Captain Nealc sent Messrs. Coffee and
Innes to Ihe wickets to face the bowling of
Messrs. G. Vnughan und Doyle. The first
two or three overs proved disastrous to the
batsmen , as Coffee had to content himself
with 1. nnd Innes with less. Bowers and
Shepherd , after malting 6 anil 1 respectively ,
had to take a back seat. Of the remaining
batsmen , J. Strlbllng. Taylor , Gunner nnd
Barnetl were Iho only ones to do anything ,
and After accumulating 33 the Shops were
put out of their misery.

The Interstate tennis tournament hold m
this clly the first flvo days of 5u.it week de
veloped the most. Interesting tennis It has
been the Ktoil fortune of the enthudasts of
Ihls city ever lo sec. From a tennis stand
point the tournament waa a very decided
success. Many crack players from outside
the city were present. Three state chain-
plena were here , Whltonun , champion of
Missouri , Furqtilmr of Iowa n'nU Austin of
Nebraska. . ' And what Is of great Interest
la the' fact that It was most conclusively
shown that Omaha has players of very high
rank. Contrary lo expectation , both the first
prizes wcro kept here.
From a financial point of view the tour
nament was not so successful , The manage
ment of the tennis association , from the
president I down to little. Sammy Dyer , who
was most Industrious at the door , worked
hard It I to nuke It a success. But with all
efforts they nro considerably behind In
the treasury. The
people did not turn out
as the affair deserved , and Ihcrcby nol only
worked an Injury lo the assoclallon. who had
gone to BO much trouble nnd
expense In ar
ranging and bringing off the tournament , but
missed games that were almost ns grod as
those of the national tournament
at Newport -
port 1 , and there were very few that were
not above mediocrity ,
It Is to be hoped
[ that Iho efforls of the association will bo
bolter appreciated In the .future. To bo
sure , the tlmo for holding the tournament
was somewhat unfxrtunate , Omaha being lee
much disturbed politically. Hut still there
should.have been a much better attcnUinco.
WILL IIB IlEPEATED N13XT YEAH.
Dut despite the financial discouragement ,
so successful was the tournament from the
ttnnls polnl of view that It will bo .repeated
next year. By that time It Is proposed to
have the association become
n member of
the United Stales Lawn Tennis assoclallon ,
and the records will then become official.
Doubtless , also , more outside players will
attend In that case , It would bo belter If
the tournament occurred earlier in the sea
son , to cnablo such players as wlahec ! , to
aUeml the Chicago tou'-iiamont and later
those of the east ,
The management of the tournament was
very pod. The courts were kept In flno
condition and there was very llttlo delay In
Betting the games started. This has not al
ways been the case In past tournaments In
he city , and perhaps the thought of this
lept many away. Tlio umpires wcro efllctcnt
and dealt fairly. In closely contested matches
It might be well hereafter not to select all
the Hnetnen from Omaha players. This Is not
meant to Imply any unfairness In the work
ot these who officiated , but a man cannot
help being partial to a player from his own
city In doubtful plays.
The matches In the doubles wcro all good.
As Ins been stated , the result was a great
surprise and many are still Inclined to be
lieve that Ihe best team did 'nol win. Far-
quhar and Nicholson , Ihe Lomars team ,
played an Inferior game In the final * . Their
play in the matches with Austln-ll.ittlu and
Caldwcll-Haskell much superior. Hart
and Young played a good name , however , and
duo credit must be given them. But 'they
are not the best team tint could be picked
from Omaha talent. Austin and Ilaskcll ,
from Ihe play of the week , would be much
stronger. Battln cannel play with Austin.
Ilaskcll and Caldwell make a strong com
bination. The weakest pair In tha tourna-
inant was , the It-incog City , team , Hmmort
and Whitman. The strongssl was Farquhar
and Nicholson. The team work of this pair
was fine. Of tha two Nicholson is the better
double player , his net work being something
remarkable. Faniubar Is more al homo In
SINGLES WnitE GOOD.
The later rounds in the singles brought out
very good games. In the semi-finals the
players were the champions and Oullmbtto
of Hastings. This latter player put up a fine
game throughout the tournament and ap
peared to bo familiar with fast players. Aus
tin's playing In Ihe finals waa n surprise
and will place him , If kepi up. In the first
rank nex year. '
