Mr. Rourke promleee to give good ball dur-
In a the summer. In order to do this he
muet have tha support of tha patrons of
tha game. Omaha haa tha reputation of
being a good ball town. It haa stood for
two aeatona of Western leagua ball, and
can probably .get through another. What

So far aa the circuit la concerned, the
Ust week haa witnessed no progress in the
.rr.ir. th. w.t.rn team iTninsa a
Kansas City will never, make a start can I
be called progressiva. ' "Tommy" Burna ot
Colorado Springs, who aeema to be the
circuit committee of the Western league,
continues ta give out assurances that Kan
aaa City aad Milwaukee will both be on
the Hat, but It is hardly poaaible that
Tommy bellevea thia himself. No one elae
doea. Milwaukee never waa a Western
league possibility, let alone "a. probability.
At one time It looked like Manning might
do aomethlng In Kanaaa City. Even now
' he baa grounds leaaed for a park,, and haa
plana drawn for a magnificent baaa ball
plant Lata word from there, hough, la
to tha effect that he is doing absoie'ely
nothing and that people have lost all coa
fldence in tha story that he Intends to put
in a team to compete with ' the American
association. Mr. Rourke saya be does not
know what the circuit committee is doing
other than what is In the papers. All the
pa para that can ba reached by Burna ara
full of hie fulmlnatlona, but the publlo no
longer pays any attention to him. Presi
dent Whitfield must have gone to work.
At any rata ha has quit talking. It is up
to. him to make good right soon now. He
has whllrd away tha long winter in telling
what be Intended to do, and doing nothing.
With tha playing aeason only two months
off, ae-flnda himself the head of a league
with only four certain starters and good
towns a carter than hens' teeth. ' It's sure
a ease of hustle for him now. Here's hop.

food? Tou know that if you stop eating, you
will die. But the mere eating of food dots
not give life. Food can no more give Ufa with
out digestion than coal can give heat with
out combustion. It Is not what we eat but
what we digest that keeps up the motor

The Haley-Murray preliminary would on

event for the main go and it will be tbe
best ' preliminary ever pulled off here.
Haley especially is a tighter of class, which
ha has demonstrated by recent mills in
Omaha and Kansas City, where he is In
good favor. It waa not thought at first that
he could be persuaded to go in a prelim
inary bout, but he bad no dates ahead, ao

Plana for Chaanploaahla Tosrncy it-
Twelve champion pool players from all
parts ef the United Slates are already en
tered tor the world's championship pool
tournament, which will begin In Brooklyn
on Monday, March S, and . continue two
weeks. They are William H. Clearwater ot
Philadelphia, Jerome R. Keogh of Buffalo,
Grant Eby of New York, Patrick H, Walsh
of Nsw York, Irving Long of Boston, H. P.
Btofft of Denver, W, E. McCune or Boston,
John Daly of Chicago, William Wearick ot
New York, Charlea Weston of Phenix. Aria.,
W. W. King of San Franciaco and Oeorge F.
Smith of Hartford. The first three are
former champions. The others ara the
crack playera of their cities.
The open conditions ot the tourney win,
lt Is expected, bring together a larger,
mora representative and better class of
players thaa any tournament previously
held. Though no entries from sbroad are
yet received, aeveral are expected. A half
dosen ot the most prominent players will
compete for the emblem. The playing
schedule will cover ten days, with two days
more for playing off tlea. - Gamee will be
of 150 points, and tbe entrance fees of $50
each will be bunched Into a sweepstakes.
The promoters will also add (400 ln cash, to
be divided Into four moneys or 1175, $100,
$75 and $50.
Equipment will be absolutely new and ot
the highest grade. It Is expected that many
records will ba broken, and several ot the
entries hare already signified their Inten
tion ot going hard after the alngle rua
aoore, which record la now held at 72 by
Grant Eby of New York. The fact -that
some ot the men who are practicing tor the
tournament are already passing this msrk
ta practice makes it look shaky.
