Mitchell Amende Plate Plaa.
Mr. Mitchell of Oregon offered aa an
amendment to tha substitute several sec
tions of the original bill providing for the
taking out of Chinese certificate In our
Insular possession and amendments for
that purpose were unexpectedly carried by
the close vote of 41 to 40. The amendment
Incorporates section 12 of the original bill
a part of the substitute and provides
the methods by which Chinese residing In
the insular territory of the United States
(Hawaii excepted) shall take out certifi
cates of Identification, etc.
The decisive vote was then taken on the
substitute proposed by Mr. Piatt of Con

laws, and this prevailed, 48 to 33, as fol

Hoar Against the Prtaclple.
The substitute was further perfected by
an amendment proposed by Mr. Mitchell
providing the judicial procedure In exclu
sion cases in our Insular possessions.
Before the final vote was taken the
passage of the substitute bill Mr. Hoar
gave notice that be would vote against the
measure, and in this connection he made
earnest protest against the principle of ex
clusion. He believed that everything In
the way of exclusion could be accomplished
without Involving the principle of striking
at a particular class or race. Holding as
he did that every soul had Its rights, and
that these right were not dependent on
color or race he recorded his protest
against this measure.
The bill was then passed, 76 to 1, Mr.
Hoar being the only one recording himself
In the negative.
Mr. Lodge of Massachusetts secured an
agreement making -the Philippine civil gov
ernment bill the unfinished business of the
senate, and after a brief executive session
the senate at 6 O'clock adjourned.

Sparring- for Time.
"Sparring for time" best describes the
present status of the negotiations, neither
side being willing to risk a decision which
would break off the present conference.
An agreement may be reached at any mo
ment, but this would more likely be the re
sult of seml-lndependent action by Lord
Mllner and Lord Kitchener at Pretoria,
than of the rather involved conditional de
cisions of the cabinet at London.
The broad lines of Great Britain's terms
sre now known to the government repre
sentatives at Pretoria and on these reo-
resentatlves the cabinet la apparently shift-
ng the responsibility of taking advantage
of all opportunities provided no. cardinal
principles be sacrificed. The government

kept clear to Insure the prompt transmis

ELEVEN INNINGS TO DECIDE
Roufke'i Men Esquire. Two Extra Bounds
to Beat Collegians.
ENCOUNTER FAST BALL UNEXPECTEDLY
indent Find No Tronble In Keeping
Even with Opponents on Stick
Work and Lose Only
Eleven strenuous innings wss what it
cost ths Omaha leaguers to wrest victory
from the University of Nebraska base ball
team at Vinton street park yesterday, and
the only additional attestation of ths merit
of the game necesssry is the score 2 to 1.
To say that the Rourke Rangers were
taken by surprise is putting It mildly. They
were completely nonplussed by the class of
play the collegians handed to them. Two
weeks sgo the -same teams plsyed three
games at Lincoln, on the 'varsity men's
home grounds, and everything was a walk
away for Omaha. The status of affairs yes
terday waa far different.
In fact, there never was a point in the
gams when the students had not equal
chances with the professionals of winning
ss fsr as the Immediate merits of ths con
test went. For ths first three Innings, too,
the undergraduates had the score 1 to 0.
when Omaha finally evened it in the fourth
by a close margin. And as far aa hits went.
the amateurs led all the way, making nine
off Owen, while eight were all the Gate
City stickers could pole off Freshman
Leatherby In the eleven Innings.
Omahans In n Tranee.
So astonished were the Omahans that
they never really came out of their trance
till along in the late innings. Then, when
the score hsd stood st a tie for about four
rounds, they woke up to the fact that tbsv
were up against a game of base ball, snd
from that time all their energies were bent
to pulling out the game. Twice It seemed
thst they had succeeded, once In the eighth
where they got two singles In a row. and
again in the tenth, when sn error snd hit
put two more men on bases. But both
times the clever youngsters from the cam
pus brought about two more ciphers by tha
very prettiest of base ball generalship snd
So the critical final came, and the first
two men up. Gaines and Rhodes, went out
ss usual. Then came "Sticks" DePutron.
with his second hit, and a passed ball put
him on second bsse. Raymond followed
with a hot grounder to third, which "Sticks"
Intercepted with his anstomy, putting him
and his side out.
For Omaha Hlckey went out. but Thomas
followed with a triple, which won the game,
ss on the next play he got home. Owen hit
to Pitcher Leatherby and right there the
"Freshman" made his sole mistake. Thomas
was almost hslf wsy from third to home,
shd Leatherby could have thrown nicely to
third and had the league catcher between
the bases. Instead he threw Owen out at
first, and Raymond got the ball back to
Catcher Bender Just too late to queer that
Collegians Promise Well.
It is a cinch' that If the collegians play
the kind of base ball they showed yester
day when they go en tour among the col
leges of ths middle west in Msy. they will
return with flying colors. They are not
building student nines anywhere to beat
this class of game.
It is another cinch that the small attend
ance of yesterday will not be duplicated
today, for : the, lovers of the sport will be
there tn numbers to watch the kind ot
game that seems assured. Nobody felt bet
ter than the Nebraskans themselves at their
Sne showing snd they vow to nake as goo
