very best article of the game Is expected and I
I Is the strength of the new material that
yet remains anywise problematical. The last L
year's record made by all these men , how
ever , Is exceedingly encouraging and under
the intelligent tutelage of Joe Walsh and D\e
Rowe It Is but natural to expect the do .
velopment of nothing short of a high degree
of efcieny on the part of most of these
I may be that Omaha wl bo BO fortunate
ns to find
fnd several embryonic stars :
among her untried forces. She hus
- done this before , notably under the
memorable regime of Uncle Dck
McCormick. There was Kid Nichols , , Tom
Lovett , Dad Clark , Jack Crooks , Litti C
CooneyJhnmy Canavan and many others , who
Blnce those days , at one time or another , have
lerched upon the topmost rung of base hal II
fame , and I Is said that history never hal
to repeat Itself. The new men Captain
Walsh has secured to assist him In battlin g
for the coveted pennant were the cream of
the various ranks In which they fgUred durIng -
Ing the past season , and there Is good
reason to believe that , In a measure , they
wilt plug up many of the holes that existed
In the team last year. Fans should not be
too sanguine , however , but at the same time
they may rest assured that Captain Walsh
wilt get the best work possible out of the
new recruits , as well as out of the older
players. " "

came down to enterIng upon the real thing
In 1 championship race. But We wi wai I.
and , pray and hope for the best.
In order that the local fans
may once more have the
r opportunIty to size :
up the team that will represent them on the I
fold of acton this year the personnel Is once
more given. On the pitchers' slab will be I
seen John Eagan , George Carrlsh , Louis NapOleon -
pOleon Dalsz , Joe Hussle , Frank , Donnely
and George Darby , an even half dozen. In
this batch are two or three weU known me fl .
notably Darby , Donnely and Carrlsh , and . It
V Is but reafonable to expect that auf of the
other three at least one capable man v ill
be ( level ope. Eagan Is a St. Louis boy ,
who has cut a prominent figure over there
during the past two years In amateur Cl Ic-
cles. He was signed by Manager Rowe on
the recommendation of Long John Healy , the
. Egyptian. Ho Is said to have wonderful
speed . good control of the bal all the
J.stamina . necessary to go the route at least
every other day. Joe Hussle comes from
Kansas City , and Is said to be the double of
New York's famous twirler. He Is highly
spoken of by no less a personage than Ralph
Stout , 1 , local magnate of blessed memory ,
now the efficIent cIty editor of the Kansas
' : City Star Hussle weighs 200 pounds and
stands six feet one In his stocking feet , when
he 1 lucky enough to have a pair on. He
has the speed of a Krup gun , an eye like an
V eagle , and something le a halt bushel of
V extra curve slants , shoots and dro pa.
: nalsz was with Lincoln the later part of last I
'sorson , and whie he failed to distnguish
himself with any special eclat. he has been
pitchIng great bal out In California during
' the last winter and Manager McVlte , who
V Is nothing when not sanguIne declare he
will shine with the brightest of the big
luminaries In the association. For ba ch-
stops there Is Rust Pace , a bIg Californi an .
who Is saId to be a second Chancy Dennet
behind the plate , and a hitter from the Vi 217
center of the city of Itersvle , and ver .
Wlalen , from the high altitude lands of
Montana. Whalen Is unquestionably a good
one , a fact amply proven by his record. He
throws like a shot and as unerringly as a
sharp shooter , stops everything that comes
wIthin a half dozen yards of him and hits I
up among the three hundred boys. So far
thes are the catchers signed , but Rowe Is
still negotiating with one or two good men ,
wih a fair prospect of securing at least one
of them. On frst will be Eddie Hutcblnson ,
& or "Old Hutch " as he was facetiously dub boil
, ' _ by the bleachers last tall. That ho will not
' . be found wanting In an position off the
. slab Is fully guaranteed by the t
admirable work which marked his play at
the close of the past season. Edward M es

young blood and comes from the Eastern

known. Ho Is well spoken of , however , and

ACKSONVILLE Ill. , March 25-To the I
Sprtng Editor of The Dee : The prospects
for base bal In Jacksonville durIng the I
season of 1895 are very flattering , In faet ,
more so than they have ever been befc ire .
The citizens ot the town have determined
that they will support base bal In spite of
everything else and the committee which was
sent out some time ago had no trouble In ob
ta ming persons to sign the subscription Ii S i
for various sums ot money for this fund. lst
new park has been arranged near where the
old park was and Is abut 700 feet squ tro.
This vill be provIded with two
wi wih grandstanls
and bleachers and will be capable of acke
commodatng' ' largo crowds Jacksonville will
not allow Sunday games to be played In the
city , but an arrangement has been made
Whereby all Sunday schedule game will be
played at Springfield . and the probabili ties
are that our Sunday attendance will be
larger than any other In the wi Ion .
Manaler Ayd2lot has taken his time to sign
tile team and It Is safe to say that the men
he has contracted for to play with Jacki ionte
vie are the finest that could be had for the
m oney. He has taken special care to get
gopd batters and the majority of them have
hattng averages above the 400 mark ; they
also have splendid
records In their various
positons end It Is safe to say that Jackc iono

windup of the season The following Is the

one or the most pleasant runs he can take Is i
via Council Bluffs to Gienwooml. Leving
Omaha , he crosses the Douglas street wagon
bridge , follows the cedar block pavement to I
the first street west of the Council Buls
pumping staten , and turning south one block ,
he follows the dirt road running parallel with
Bro adway. Here he fInds this much beter
riding than the block pnvement ' \ llch him Is
becme almost unrldeablo within the last
year or so , on account of the holes and ruts
causetl by heavy traffic. Following this road
straight cast he arrives at Daylss park ] ,
Counci Bluffs. Here turning south for a few
blo cks . then east , to the tot of the Bluffs , he I
fin ds himself al the main road leading past :
the Deaf and Dumb institute : straight on for
a couple of miles he comes to a fork In lle I
road , followIng the one whIch turns to the
right , he spins along the foot ot high bluls
covered In the summer with wild flowers and
grases of all kinds , from which the gent Ic
breezes carry a delicious odor to him. So t
far he has traveled about eleven miles , and
has encountered but few small hilts. Now Ito
approaches some quite steep ones coming to
where the road forks , he fellows the ono
to his left , and after about two miles' rIde .
he arrives at Ole top of the bluffs . along.
crwh ese base he has just been riding Here
a pretty sight greets his eye , the scenery
Is beautiful. He looks down over the green
fie lds and sees the "Big Muddy" wInding I its .
way toward the gulf . He Is now opposite' '
Bclevue college , Eplnnlng on he finds the rad
quie level for 1. mile or so , when he. begins
to descend the steepest Inclnl on tie rom id ,
knewn as Pony Creek hill , and using Ine' romioi ,
as a brake , down It he shoots his momentum' '
crrying him hal way up the ' hill that les
before him on the other side. After climbi rmg
this he agaIn comes upon almost level road
and Is within about 'tour miles of nomd. .
I ho wIshes to quench Ills thirst , he stops
at a farm ouse , and water never tasted as' '
geed as the cool , fresh cup full he gets from I
the well. He mounts , and Is off again , passes
by many orchards which later In the seam Ion '
are usually laden wIth delicious fruit. Gb ? n- :

latter Is usualy preferable as It Is traveled
more and Is In better condition . There are ,
however h , no his on the bottom road , which
Is a point In its favor. Deciding to tko the
telephone road he goes east from the hotel
two blocks , north three thence cast to the

CLAHICS , Neb. , March 27-To the SportIng -
Ing Editor of The Dee : More sportsmen Srmoni'e
for the first time been disappointed In their
spring shootng of ducks and geese this ycar :
than ever berore. Not a single good "ku "
has been made on the Plate In this vicini
during the sprIng fight this year and already
the birds have entirely deserted the Plate.
Colonel Richmond , Captain Hoyt and other
local l sportsmen made extensive lwepanatio :
as early as March 1 to entertain visltii
hunters and slaughter the wid fowl on their
usual favorite roosts on the Platte. No feed
In the fields and no water In the creeks and
canyons , together with the fact that the river
was early lined wih tents and doted over
wIt h blinds , caused the wild fowl to move on m
to better and more peaceful feeding ground , .
The recpton of the goose or duck un-
fortunate enough to bend Its fight along the
course of the historic Plate might well be 1
compared to that tendered the federal gu U-
beats when they tried to run by the batten ea
at VIcksburg. Ten camps , equipped with
about twenty-five blinds , were located on i
the Plate wIthIn eight miles , traveling cast
from Carks , so that you wi readily understand -
stand that It would be Indeed a weary amI :
thirsty fowl that would dare venture to rest
on the bars or sip of the waters of the Platte
In that vichmmity. Of course some of the
campers were out for fun and necreati on
and the shooting was only the nominal ebb ct.
One party of five I observed occupying u
bli nd . In which they bad a large jug , which
{ suppose contained theIr ammunition , and
they were enjoyIng a social game of cards ,
occasionaly dropping a poor hand to take ni
nt some sky-scraping geese or mora
frequenty at the jug.
A quart flask was found by Joe Wells , near
Columbus , containing the following mcssage : :
ON TIE PLATTE RIVER , East of Carks ,
Marcb , 22 , 1895.-To the finder of this leter :
I am alone , abandoned on a sandbar In the I
Platte , surrounded by three feet of swif ;
running water , which glides over ten feet of
quick santi. I wlsb that I had one of Sandy
Griswold's articles on the beautes of nature ,
as they are presented during a spring shoot.
The sky some way fails to reveal the beautes : ;
he so vividly represents and the cloud torr 'ma- '
tons have been overlooked ; the cry of the
alarmed wild fowl Is not properly adjusted
to the music of the wInd and wave. Already :
{ feel the exhiaratng and elevating tnf enc
of my surroundings , In every joint and m
si new. Sandy , I have been victimized by
ycur poetIc imagination. Yet , perhaps , If I I
had at hand one of those articles It might
deceIve me again and reconcile me to my sad
fa te. Nature Is beautiful In her place but
hereafer she can have her place and I Ii
take Goodie Drucker's for mine. Defer I
start out again for 1 goose hunt , should I
escape alive this time , I will take a Ii ( tie
proper training , by pushing a loaded hand :
cart across the Saham. Save my life by
replenishing this fasl < ! 1
Drop It Into the north channel of the Plate
from the Clarks bridge. Don't drop It In
unti after dark , I shall look out for it. Put
a floater on I. Hopefully ,
All time camps , with the exception of Colonel
R icimmond's . have broken up. JACK Ii 1.
GREAT BEND , Kan. , March 27.-To the
S porting Editor ot The Dee : The fght of
the festive feathered fowl has come and gone ,
and by this I refer to geee and ducl < s. Their
sojourn here was briefer this year than any
formcr season known , 10 I am told by the
suprannuated local sports , men who once
enjoye hunting , but are to old now to par-
ti cipata. Game generally tarried here quite
a while , the surrounding country affording
good foraging ali the Cheyenne bottoms cx-
c eilent trysting grounds for them These bottoms -
toms t arC sixteen miles long and seven miles
wide , Including mora territory than J at first
supposed , As plentiful as I bave seen game
there , huntng Is not as satisfactory as J
have experienced In the northwest If bag
alone Is considerEd , but It Is more exciting
and replete with amusing Incidents. excitng
most successful and at Limo same time enjoy-
able method Is for a party of two , with a
Igbt l buggy and gentle team , but one that Is
trainEd to the sport and when necessary can
run a lightning gait , to "mosey" around time
b ottommi. The driver , whim the lines over his
lef l arm and his gun ready for acton , guides
the team until we are wihin shootng dis-
( once. After the ( frt shot the team will
stampede and felow the game and all you
have h to do Is to pump It Into them. I you
are fortunately ont on a windy day and successful -
cessful In driving the game against time wind
b y working thIs strategy you can oren get
right under thermm I durIng the ehasl you
run Into a chuck hole and Ire unceremoniously -
monlously dumped In a heap Into a pool of
water , this ( adds zest to the sport , providing
you nor the horses are hurt , Last Saturday
M. George Mrthal and myself rode over
there for a couple of hours' bunt and a more
oxhlaratng time I never have had As we
care to the blur overlooking the expansive
valley , here and there we could leo bunches
of whie brant scatterell promiscuously with
bunches or Canadas and black brants. " 'I V
consumed a little time chasing a large dir-
ablel Canada , but his wings were all rIght
and he eluded us , A flock of whIte brant lit
a quarter of a mile from us and to them we
started Allowing the team to saunter along
slowly and keeping our guns out of sIght

Ing nearer all limo time. I whispered to
George to taco team to game but they
were on to the trick and Immolutely
arose. Tht horse knew their business and
the race commenced , wo firing as they ran-
only a bag of four , we simoull have killed a
dozen , as there were 600 or 800 in the flock ,
Don you believe in time charmed life of s
wimite goose ? We poured four loads into one ,
apparently filling It si'itb lead , but it comm.
