RARE SPORT FOR THE FANS
University Nines Give a Great Ix-ibition
of the National Game ,
CHICAGO BOYS TOOK THE FIRST ONE
Ituln Slopped the Hrconil Which Mill I'ulr

Ho Hnycil Off Thli
Thcro was only a moderate crowd out at
L'niver lty park yesterday morning to wit
ness the first of the long talked of Decora-
tlon day games between the University club
team of thin city and the Juitly celebrated
Chicago university team.
The contest had been advertised for 10
o'clock , but owing to a belated train the
Windy City colleglates did not arrive hero
for fully an hour later , arid did not get to
playing until nearly noon. They had been
telegraphed to enroute and donned their
uniforms aboard the sleepers , and reaching
Omaha were driven forthwith to the ball
grounds. This hustle , combined with the
fatigue of their Journey and the fact that
they had no preliminary practice whatsoever ,
undoubtedly accounts In a large measure for
tholr Indifferent work when they did get In
That the Chicago university team Is one
of the best drilled and stoutudt collegiate
aggregations In the country , If not tlm
ntcllar organization , Is a fact that Is famil
iar to all clos" followers of amateur nth-
lot'cs. The team has had the 'o-nellt of a
thornusli co "so of training under tin ; great
Stare , nnd rs chain ot brilliant comiup.itJ
la abundant evidence of the validity of the
aonvr f > tatciiii-nt.
TV/0 OMA1I.HOYS ON THE TEAM.
Td add much to tha local IntoifM In this
great team la the fact that two Omaha
boys , Henry Clarke and Scott Hrown , arc
members ot the saint- , and as n r.Ulu'r Pe
culiar coincidence both In the Important
position of pitcher. That both are deserving
ot the flattering encomiums bestowed upon
them by the Chicago press was fulld ° mon-
straled by the llttlo that was coon of them
hore. Mr. Drown pitched the morning panic ,
and whllo a trifle wild evinced th ? qualities
of much moro than an ordinary man. The
University club team was only ablu to con
nect safely 'five times with his peculiarly
deceptive underhand delivery , and had ho
possessed better control the Omaha boys
would have been shut out.
Arrayed against Urown was Lawler for
the University club , and he , too , is entitled
to the fullest meed of praise. Ho hail good
speed as long as It lasted nnd for thrco In
nings pitched a la professional. Ills EUP-
port , however , was extremely shabby , and
In the fourth Inning , after chances had been
offered to rctlro the side , the luaty profes
sors from the shores of billowy Michigan
lilt him for four singles and a trlpb , and
this stick work , hltchrd to a base on balls ,
n hit by a pitched ball and two large , mel
low errors , netted eight runs.
PLAYED ONLY SIX INNINGS.
This clinched the game , which by prior ar
rangement had been fixed for six Innings
only , lu order that the crowd might bo
given an opportunity to snatch a mouthful
of luncheon , go see the great Dodge street
road race and get back to the park lu the
afternoon to seethe game of the day.
It was 4 o'clock when play was called
for the afternoon game. There was a largo
and fashionable crowd In attendance and
everything looked auspicious for a great
battle asldo from the dark nnd omlnoxis
clquds which were gathering like evil hosts
along the southwest horizon.
There was little delay In getting down to
business. Clarke and Hoblnson were pitted
against each other , nnd had It not been for
the ungraciousness ot Old Jupiter Pluv the
anxious ctowd would have unquestionably
been treated to a masterly exhibition of
the twlrlers' art. Both jn.cn were In the
pink of form and on their mettle , and but
three hits .were made during the three In
nings played , two of these being off Clarke
end one on * Hoblnson , ono of Omaha's being
of the scratchiest order ,
STOPPED IY UAIN.
The game was developing Into a thrilling
contest when Jupiter pulled the string and
the flood'gates of heaven swung open. After
a short wait an attempt was made to finish
the game , but It was no use. A heavy , soakIng -
Ing rain was at the bat and the thing was
reluctantly'given up and the big crowd dis
persed In disappointment. This was par
tially appeased , though , by the management
Issuing rain checks and the announcement/ /
by Captain Abbott that the Chicago team
would remain hero today nnd play off the
game this afternoon , b ° glnnlng at 1:30
sharps Clarke and Hoblnson will again face
each other and the high class character of
the event should bo sufllclcnt to attract an

Paddy Murray and George Stout met last
night nt Koutsky's hall , Twentlclh and Q
slreets , South Omaha , for n $300 purse. It
was only a three-round affair nnd Stout
stopped his man so suddenly lhat ho never
knew what struck him.
At 9:00 : the llghtej-s entered the ring nnd
Referee Gonzales threw the two-ounce
gloves on Ihc floor. In Ihe lirst round both
men sparred for wind. In the second there
was some hard lighting , nnd It was plain
to be seen lhat botli llghlers were In
earnesl. Murray got a couple of vicious
dabs on the nose which made the gore
How , nnd his face looked like n pounded
beefsleak. Stonl had agreed to stop Mur
ray in four rounds or less , and when time
was called for the third round ho went to
work with a will. Murray fought hard
and died gumo. When the knouk-oul blow
enmo Murray never knew wluil slruek him ,
for he fell to the floor like a losr. Men who
had placed their money on Stout carried
the victor from the ring on their shoulders.
Murray's gambler friends left In disgust.
Notice had been given that the mill
would bo pulled off nt Surpy Mills , conse-
qupenlly Ihe city authorities paid no at
tention to the matter. The rain , however ,
caused a change of program.

1'EOniA. III. . May 30. ( Special Tele
gram. ) The Omahas were butchered today
o make a Peorla holiday. The home team
took the visitors Into camp for both games ,
making It three straight against the Omahas
during their visit here. Their nearness to
Irst place seems to stimulate the Distillers
to heroic efforts , and they were assisted by
seine very dizzy playing at times on the
part of the Omahas. Large crowds were
irescnt at both games. The morning game
was an Interesting one , and for a time It
ooked as though Omaha had It won. The
score seasawed along , tied or with a small
advantage In favor of one or the other , until
the ninth inning , when Omaha led with seven
runs to her credit as against four for Peorta.
Then the Peorlans started In to do business.
Flynn rapped out a single and Fisher was
Mt by the pitcher. Hallcr achieved n homo
run , which so rattled Darby that every man
who came to the bat after that had no
trouble In hitting him hard. Selsler made a
three bagger , Bennet a single , Francis a
double , Dugdalc a single , and Nulton flew
out. Pitcher Leltman then got his only hit
of the day and the Peorlans started In on the
batting again. Flynn got another single , as
did Fisher , Haller , who had made a home
run on the first round , could do no better
than n thrco bagger. Selsler made a single ,
Bennett a double and then Francis and Dug-
dale ended the agony by flying out to center.
Thirteen runs came In In the Inning and
they were Indeed the unlucky thirteen for
Omaha. Score :

In the afternoon game Peorla started In
determined to make It three straight , and
win first placa for herself. If Lincoln would
only be kind enough to loso. And yet they
might not have succeeded had they not
changed their battery. Hanson and Dugdale
started In with the game , but the Onnlias
seemed to have little difficulty In finding
Hanson , and only the magnificent playing of
the fielders and basemen prevented their
scoring liberally. Thomas and Collins were
finally substituted , and then the trouble be
gan for the Omahas. They could do llttlo
with Thomas , while the Peorlans nearly ham
mered Egan out of the box. Toward the
end of the game the visitors crawled up until
the score ended at 12 to 8. Score :

FIRST HOAD RACE A THING OF THE PAST
llollotrny of 1'lnttntnnutli Took the Tlmp
Prize and tlio hol.llrr Beat Tlium
All In Large Crowd
If you Imvo nny Ooubts nt all of the grsat
holil that wheeling 1ms taken on the good
people of Omaha you should Imvo boon a
spectator of the road race on the Dodge
street macadam yesterday afternoon. It
was the first road race undertaken In the
city and was given under the auspices of
the newly organized Associated Cycling
club and was ono of the greatest successes
of the season In sporting circles. It will
not bo tlio last road race , for yesterday's
success was so great that wheelmen are
already talking of making It an annual
feature In sporting circles. There Is no
reason why It should not bo made as pop
ular as those run In Chicago , Denver and
other cities In the country , and If It should
become a fixture next year's race Is sure
to bo witnessed by 10.000 people.
Decoration day Is quite proverbial for Its
usual downfall of rain , and the aspect of the
sky yesterday was not such as would tend
to discourage this expectation. The entire
sky was concealed by n curtain of cloud ,
with little cloudlets floating hero and there ,
and In the southwest there was a great
banli that seemed to bo filled up to the
brim with water. Hut Instead of keeping
them Indoors this prospect of rain , which
brought before their mind's oyc visions
of the big , Juicy cars of corn , great fat
hogs and lingo vegetables of next fall , over
spread the faces of the people of this great
city with a sunshine that would have ri
valed the beams of old Sol , and they came
out to revel In tholr Joyousness.
There were fully 5,000 of them out there.
Thsy came In all manner of ways , afoot ,
horseback , on wheels and In carriages and
buggies. They were all kinds of people ,
too , not only us common folk , but thora were
representatives from the 400 of both ex
tremes of the social string. Thcro were car
riages there by the hundred , some of them
the swell outfits of the town and containing
their swell owners. Hunnlng between their
wheels and their horses' feel were hundreds
of the small boys of the city , the street
gamin , who came out to see "do Western
Union kid show do guys how ter ride er
wheel. " Hut the great mass of the crowd ,
however , was composed of the people , these
that came out on the street cars as far as
they could and then walked or rode out on
their wheels. There were good looking ,
happy-appearing men , some of them fat and
warm , and pretty and fresh looking glrli
and women. <
WHEELS WITHOUT NUMBER.
There appeared to be countless wheels all
about some ono estimated there were 1,000
there. Some of them were light scorchers
and some of them heavy Ice wagons , and be
tween these extremes all grades. Ths riders
were as varied In character. Fat men and
thin men , young men and old men , men who
were scorchers and men who rotlo along as
If they enjoyed It , men who rode a straight
line and men who wobbled , men In sweaters ,
In shirt sleevea , with coats on , and wheel
club uniforms of all colors were represented.
And the blcycllennes ! Hundreds of them ,
some of them In pretty , modest bloomers
and , others without them ; some riding by
themselves and others on tandems with their
escorts or with their companions on a wheel
by their sides. Many of them were pretty ,
lithe , fresh looking girls , with fair com
plexions and rosy cheeks that presented an
almost overpowering temptation to the male
The course was over the white macadam
road , over hills and down into dales , five
miles and back again. People were scattered
all along It , but were crowded along the
eastern end. At the starting point , at Fifty-
eighth street , the foot of a hill , It was dllll-
cult for the officials to do their work on ac
count of the crush. It was the same all the
'way to the top of the hill , which was crowned
by a solid mass of carriages and people. This
was the best place from which to watch the
race , and every one who knew it went up.
It was only a few minutes after 2 o'clock
when the men who had the greatest handicap ,
four minutes , were lined up for the start :
Fred Edwood , H. S , Thomas , J. U. Hathmann ,
W. F. Clark , O. A. Fnchs , II. Edghlll and C
A. llonham. The pistol In the hand of Ilef-
frce Sandy Orlswold cracked , anil the riders
were pushed off and flew up the hill. Over
the hill they disappeared and the men who
had a handicap of three minutes were lined
up C. M. Edwards , T. 1 > . Huston , II. A.
Hanssn , J. Ross , II. L. Underwood and Wal
ter Burdlck and snt off. As they bowled
over the top of HID hill the two-minute men ,
W. S. Illgdon , II. Holloway , F. C. Stocking ,
W. D. Staley and O. G. Salgle , and then the
one-minute men , G. I ) . Miner , John Hynes
and U. E. McCullough , were started. Finally
a minute later the pistol cracked again , and
the last bunch of the twenty-eight starters ,
the scratch men , II. C. Gadke , E. L. Totter
II. E. Fredrlckson , W. A. Plxley , J. C. Cnl-
ley , James Mach and C. K. Denman , shot
away , Fredrlckssn In the lead , with the oth
ers pushing him close , except Culley , who took
a tumble and started off with several yards
to the bad.
WAITING FOR THE RETURN.
For the next thirty minutes the officials at
the starting point spent their time In pressing
back the overflowing mass of carriages and
people from the track and speculating as to
who ths first man In would be. The people
at the top of the hill followed The course of
the riders as far as they could , and then
waited patiently until they appeared In view
on their return. Meanwhile the racers flew
along the course and went around the turn
In prsctlcally the same order they came In ,
Edwood first and Clark eecond. Of the
scratch men Fredricksen rounded It first , but
was closely followed by the others. The pret
tiest racr was between these scratch men
and between Edwood and Clark , and the
prettiest portion of the race was from the
bottom of the secund hill from the finish
and over the next hill down to the tape.
Suddenly from the watchers at the foot
of the hill a great shout arosa : "Thcro they
come. " It was no false alarm this time ,
although soy. ral similar shouts had precodeA
it. The mass at the top was quickly divid
ing to allowa wide pathway , and two riders
suddenly shot over the crown of the hill as
If from the clouds. Down , down the hill
they flew , as pretty a race as one could
wish to see , nock and neck to within a
do7n feet of the tape , when ono shot ahead
and won the race by a length. "Who Is It ? "
cried every ono. It was a surprise. The
winner was Fred Edwood and the other was
W. F. Clark , both four mlnuto men.
The excitement was not over when an
other rider Jumped over the top of the hill ,
all alone and apparently not exerting him
self In the Itaat. He was riding easily , but
for all that ho was going. Then two "came
popping up ono after the other , and the
usual cheers greeted them , nut the wildest
yelling met the filth rider , Edghlll , the lit
tle Western Union messenger boy. clad In
no brilliant uniform , but only In an under
shirt and pants , pumping Ills machine In a
way that was surprising. He had ridden over
the course for the first time In the morning.
He then attempted to borrow a lighter
wheel from a firm In the city , but It did not
think ho could ride and refused to lend him
one. So he had to enter the race with MA
heavy machine of thirty pounds , not at nil
geared for a race , but he Intended to show
that he could ride , and ho did. Now that
bicycle firm Is kicking Itself for a chump.
A moment after Edghlll came In another
followed , and then another and another ,
until the first of tho. scratch men , Will
Plxley , came In like the wind In 0:31 : flat ,
the thirteenth In the race , after one of the
gamiest races of the day. The other scratch
men followed , and then others came In and
gome didn't come In at all ,
The time prize was won by Holloway In
32:13 : , Plxley was second In 0:34 flat.

a surpriseto whK-lmcn. Fredrlckscn had
been picked out for the winner of the time
prize , but had to bo content with seven
teenth place In the race. It was also con
ceded before the race that some of the
scratch men would como In for a prize , but
none ot them did , the prizes falling gen
erally to the men who received the biggest
handicaps. On this account the handicap-
pcrs were pretty generally criticised for not
olzlng up the capacity of the starters with
proper care. The giving of two minutes
handicap to Holloday was especially unsat
isfactory , ns It was considered that his
proper place was among the scratch men.

CHICAGO. May SO. The annual Decora
tion day bicycle road race from the Llncolu
monument to Evanston and return , a dis
tance of tuciity miles , was ridden tod.iy
and was witnessed by from 45,000 to 50.00J
people scattered along the route.
The race was a splendid success. Tha
weather was Just right for hnrd riding. Tha
sky was overcast about two-thirds with light ,
fleecy clouds , which protected the peoplii
from the scorching sun. The wind was juat
strong enough to lazily flap the American
flag which hung from the wide crossing ever
the starting point. The general opinion
agreed that there were at least 20,000 pcopla
within sight of the start , net to mention tlm
bright scene along the route. Of the 627 en-
trie ] about 400 started.
Big "Fatly" Bliss and Joseph B.idcnoch ,
the limit men , got under sail under the nolso
of the crowd and llio tooting of tally-ho
bugles. Bliss' 310 pounds were hard lo get
a-going , and before ho was really In motion
Uadenoch was almost out of sight. Then ,
came the Ion-minute bunch , seven in num-
bsr , and they were started In good order.
The system of holding n tupo In front ot the
squad * and raising It as the starter gave the
w-crd worked admirably until the seven , six
and flve-inlmito men began to crowd things.
Then for a time the confusion augured a gen
eral mix up of the starting. Men rushed
under t'no tape and tried to gel away ahead
of each oilier. Before Hie three-mlnuto
group was reached order had been restored ,
and the subsequent disorder could not have
made any difference In the result. When the
three scratch men , llalnbrldgo , DeCardy and
Peck , came to the line they were riotously
cheered. They waited several minutes for
the word and when Ihoy were sent away t'iiey
started abreast up the drive , each waiting
on the other lo set the pace. Balnbrldge was
IIr. l to see the necessity of "culling out , " so
ho shot Into the front and they starled In
pursuit In single file. The race was now en
In earnest , ard the friends or the respect
ive riders were doing their best to Justify
their prediction * of victory , or at least honor
by cheering lliolr colors as they flashed by.
Every rider had been firm In the belief for
sonic time that ho had a chance to win
and every enthusiast thought he had a dead
cinch on the winner. A rough computation
reveals Iho facl that there must bo all the
way frcm 2,000 to 20.000 dlsappolnlcd people.
Each cycling club had a man who csuld not
lose and plenty of dark horses who would
make n good run. Talk with the cyclists at
the start showed that every man had a tala
aboul Iho wonderful work his club favorlto
had done. Marvelous records had been maJo
under cover of night and surprises were
promised by the score.
The flrst man In was J. M. Dwcrak of Iho
Ccnlral Cycling club , who flnlhlied Iho
twenty-mile run In 53 minutes and 45 sec
Of the Ihree scratch men William Do-
Cardy finished flrst and William Ihtlnhrldgc
Dworak crossed the lape flrit , but his claim
to flrst place was contoslcd. Edwin Fry of
Milwaukee ran second lo Dworak , but his
position , with that of Dworak , was disallowed ,
It being claimed that these men had not
ridden the full course as laid down In the
chart , whether wilfully or by mistake
was not said.
Accordng to the decision of the JiMgcA Iho
following are Die flrst ten men who finished ,
with their handicaps and lime :
