That U the present status of affaJra In
th world of bat ball. During the week
meeting was held at Buffalo, tba ostensible
object of which waa to adopt ualform play
ing rules. Much debate waa had, and
alight modification waa recommended for
the rule In regard to atrlkea and balls. Tba
neat notable feature of (he meeting waa
the admlaelon to full fellowship of delegatei
from the American association. After de
nouncing tnese men a ouiiawa ana pro
Bouncing the ban of excommunication
gainst them. It must have afforded Pat
Powers Iramense satisfaction .to alt' In the
aame meeting', with them. , But Pat
la doubtless a philosopher all truly
great men are aod knows when he
is' licked. In talking aboujf matters
one Western ' league ' magnate ' said
he could not understand how these Amer
ican delegates happened to be present, and
then naively added; "They must hare been
admitted aa representatives of an independ
ent league." To a man up a tree, It would
eem so. Surprise over their admission will
not be very widespread, though, for faith
la Pat Powera' alleged' authority to bind
and loose la not very deep- outside of cer
tain quartera, and even there some skepti
cism exists. In any event, the meeting Is
not likely to be long remembered nor to
have any direct effect on the course of
bape ball, for at hla Drat opportunity Ban
Johnson declared that his league would not
be bound by the rules adapted -there, and
Thomas Jefferson Hlckey aald "mea tooa."
These gentlemen being the representatives
ot the only two Independent leagues operat
ing between the Rocky mountains and tba
Atlantic coast. It la probably all off with
tba Buffalo code.
No, gentle reader.' It Is not a mistake to
refer to the two Americana aa the only In
dependent leagues. The National, a long
lovingly referred to as the "big" league, la
rapidly going the way of other "big" things
in thla country, the "big fellow" for ex
. ample. When Ban Johnson entered the
field the National league magnatea laughed
him to acorn. They wouldn't listen to him,
and Invited him to go bis length. Wail,
Ban Johnson put the "big" league on the
hog, and didn't bait try. He simply went
ahead and organized hla teams In the cities
elected, played ball, made money and now
aarenely faces a world that frowna on all
base ball leagues but hla. In the Interim
the "big" league la split in the middle,
four clubs against four clubs, an effort to
elect g president Is tied up In court and the
whole affair in such condition that an al
most complete reorganization must take
place before any' business can be transacted.
80 the National la a long way from
being Independent. When Tom Hlckey waa
president of the Western league he had no
hesitation in entering as a member of the
National Association of Minor Baae Ball
Leagues, of which P. T. Powera la presi
dent. When Tom Hlckey became president
of the American association he refused to
acknowledge longer the suzerainty of Mr.
Powera, declining to be classed as a minor
league. ' The American association waa Im
mediately denounced aa an outlaw organi
sation, ita sole offense being its, refusal to
enter the 'minor .league fold. Mr. Powers
wanted hi astern league to be considered
the veal thing and waa aupported In thla
by Mr. Tim Murnaae, esq., president of the
New England league, who furnished Mr.
rowers with a very Instructive aad. In aome
, ways, amusing compilation from the census
of 1900, to ahow how absurdly fallacious
were the Hlckey aspirations to major
league honors. But Hlckey declines to be
classed with the minor leagues, and, there
tore, la aeciaxea an outlaw by the power
or Powers. Up to date Hlckey la aeveral
paraaanga la advance of the procession led
by the president ef the Eastern league,
It will, therefore, be easily seen that The
Bee la quite correct In calling Ban John
aon and Tom Hlckey the only independent
base ball presidents In the eaatarn half
of the United States at present. Al 8peld
Ing may be somebody In this class, but Pat
Powers never will.
Another feature of the week was the
postponement of the Western league meet
Ing which waa to have eonvened at Den
ver last night This waa put off one
month. . No very deep research Is needed to
develop the reason. When the Kansas
City mealing adjourned tba circuit was
left Incomplete, and ao far at aurface In
dlcatlona go no great progress baa been
made toward filling the gaps. It la now
certain, that neither Milwaukee nor Indian
spoils, which were so confidently claimed,
will be on the list. In pes Moines the
prospects are the poorest. At Kansss City
little or nothing la known.' The Western
league enthusiasts still claim that Man
nJng and Nichols will put la a team there
to compete with the American association
but the publio expression all seems te dls
credit this talk. Colorado Springs, Den
ver, St. Joseph and Omaha are the only
towna the Western la certain of. Preal
- dent Whitfield la reported to be negotiat
ing with Peoria with a fair degree of auc
ceea. No other reaaonably available can
dtdate appears. With only about all weeks
left to make up the circuit, It la plainly
up to the Western to hustle.
Tom Burns, the Colorado Springs money
burner, baa acquired the magnate habit
for fair. He doesn't sleep at night, owing
te the pregnant thoughts that aurge through
his teeming brain, each big with poasl
billtlee for the league In which he has
staked bla base ball reputation. When
daylight cornea each morning he bunts up
the nearest reporter and outlines to him
another campaign of triumph. This one Is
tsken at raadom from a choice collection
of Ihtervlewa furnished the Colorado press
during the week by the effervescent Mr.
The. story that haa ben going the ro-jnds
of the prees to the effect that the Western
league will dleband In a day or ao has riot
the slightest foundation. 1 have said that
the American waa on the run and I atlll
say It. When I was ea-t the other day
Manning and Preeldent Whitfield strongly
urged me to allow the entire Western
league situation to htt printed, but I would
not agree to It. Therefore, 1 don't feel
that I am privileged to give out any secret
information at preeent. .
Friday next Van Brunt of St. Joseph and
myself will be In Milwaukee to look oyer
the situation. The manager of the Mil
waukee Western league team will ac
company us. It in my opinion that the
American association will never play ball
In Milwaukee. Havershaw, half owner of
the team with Harry Quln, la at outs with
his partner and wants to come over to the
Western, bag and baggage.
In Kansas City I predict that the situa
tion la going In favor of the Western ee
fast as it can and I don't think Tebeau will
ever play there. Hlckey has offered to
make concessions to Van Brunt and myself,
but I did not care to talk to him. The
American association magnates are '''
and ersred badly. They have two cltiee
that they can count on, Columbus and
l,oulsvllla, which are good ball towns for
the first mon'h, but poor afterward. Tney
are tied up everywhere else and are ready
to confer with ua If we care to have them.
Toledo wants to come Into the Western
and hns offered to pay the expense of the
Western league circuit oommlttee If It will
come there and look over the aquation.
They have got plenty of backing. Watklns
of Indianapolis now wants to accept our
propoaltlon, but I have not decided about
Mr. Burns could confer no greater favor
on aeveral thousand Omaha ball cranka
than to allow the Whole altuallon
In regard to the Western league to be made
public. What we want to know Is the
truth. Pipe stories have lost their grip
here. Omaha expects to have a team In
the Western league this sesson. Expects
to get good ball and will give It good
patronage, as It always has, but Omaha
wanta to know something more definite
than has yet been confided to the public.
Three or four weeks ago the people here
were worked up to a fever atage over the
prospecta of getting Into faster company.
That prospect was blighted and the blight
1s properly . ascribed to Mr. Bums. Now
that It Is certain that Omaha is to be in
the Western league, the faithful, here
would like to know what they are going
to get. The "Just wait" story la getting a
little monotonous. At the time of the Kan
sas City meeting Omaha was -the biggest
toad In the Western puddle. Now that
Omaha Js fixed, the tune has changed aad
It la ''Van Brunt of St. Joseph and My
self" who are running the show. Well,
so far aa Omaha la . concerned, Messrs
Van Brunt of Bt. Joseph and Myself" are
welcome to the lime light If they will only
do something. We are weary, oh, so weary
of the fairy tales we have been told. Let
'Van- Brunt of St. Joseph and Myself" get
action and quit talking to us about pulling
towna out of the American association. If
we are to have Peoria, Sioux Cits, Wichita,
Emporia, Pueblo, Lincoln, Wahoo, Pacific
Junction or any other towna to make up
the circuit, let ua know it. ' Omaha haa the
most loyal, lot of ball cranks In the world,
but "this suspense Is killing ua." Please,
good Mr. Burnk, the next time Van Brunt
Manning, Whitfield or anybody else asks
yon to give up the situation, do It. Baae
ball in different from a raining deal,, you
know.' Tou must have publio support to
make a ball. team go. .
Teeterday the Western' lesgue magnatea

deliberation, 4hat there is no prospect of
the Western having a team In Indianapolis

There will be a novel contest on the
Omsha Gun club grounds March 6. On
that day an all-Nebraska team will com
pete with the Omaha Oun club team In a
twenty-five' live bird event, ' The conteet
'111 be interesting from the fact that
mong the all-Nebraska team will be four
men who have always shot in the Omaha
team ana they are resolved to bring upon
their whilom brothers an ignominious defeat.
In the Brat place the challengere of the
11-Nebraska team apeclfied that the Omaha
team should be composed only of residents
of Omaha, South Omaha und Council Bluffs.
Then they gav the namea of the all
Nebraska team. The first man mentioned
was Dan Bray of Syracuse, one of the most
rellabje shots in the Omaha Oun club.
The second man named was Frank Beard
of Herman, the "B 27" entry, whoae acorea
have been the pride of Omaha In many a
closely contested match. The third name
was Dick Lindarman of Weeping Water,
another man whose average Is close to
the perfect mark. Then came the- name of
G. A. Scbroeder of Columbus, who has
often brought victory from the Jaws of
defeat when the Omaha Gun club was la a
close match. The other namea submitted
were George! Carter of North Platte! cap
tain; Terryberry of Louisville, Beverldge
of Fremont, Solvers of Grand Island, Burke
of Elgin and Blmpklns of Lttacolaa
The challenge has not been accepted, but
It undoubtedly will be at the next meeting
of - the club. A probable line-up . of the
contesting parties haa been made 'as fol
lows: Parmelee against Bray. Dick Kimball
against Llnderman, "Grant" against Beard,
Townsend against Scbroeder, Fogg' against
Carter, Lewis against Slmpklns, Hard'.n
against Terryberry,' Montmorency against
Burke, Beershelm against Solvere and
Burke against Beverldge. Such a combina
tion. It ia believed, would make a good
race and land the Omaha club-winner, al
though three of lis best men have gone
over to the enemy.

More shooting enthusiasm Is apparent In
Omaha during the present month than for
long time previous, snd the sportsmen
say that this and other indications are
that the coming summer. will be tbe best
shooting season In years. The member

Tournaments have followed fast on each
other's heels this month and there are
still a half-dozen In view. At St. Ed
ward. Neb., Pete Simpson, the old Omaha
shooter, who now lives out in the burg
named, will give a three days' ahoot on
February It, 1 and 20. Five Omaha ahets
will go out and show Pete a time.
Then on February 20 and $1 there will
be two shoots In progress, one at Hast

A large attendance la promised at both.
The biggest shoot of the month, and
therefore, one wnicn will attract more
Omaha sports than any other, la the one
which J. L. Forkner will give at Carroll
la., on February tS, II and 17. There will
be $400 added to the regular money, an
tbe prospect haa caused ten Omahana to
announce already that they will be there,
April, too, will be a gala month, for
then will come the biggest shooting event
of the year for Nebraska, and It will be
held here In Omaha. That Is the annual

champions wae practically the aame ae that
of the week before, being thirty-nine pins
lower on total score. Meanwhile tbe Ger
mans were tbe bit of the week by making a
great leap from fourth place te tie with the
Clarksons for second. The Germans beat
the Westerns three gamee straight, and
their total was 1SI pins better than the last
one they made.
The Clarksons fell down miserably, thslr
score dropping 120 points in the week, aad
the t. Charles team took three from them,
but the latter men did not have to play
very hard to do It, ao their own score
showed a decrsase of lit points from that
