OMAHA MEETS FIRST DEFEAT
Peoria Pirates Put a Crimp in tha Bonrke
GAME THE BEST SEEN THIS SEASON
Throaah an Error af Stewart's In the
lsth the Visitors Raah la
Two Rana and Win
ueiore a crowd of 6.000 people the
Omaha baseball team met its first reverse
at the hands of the Peoria Pirates Sun
any aiternoon by a acore of 2 to 1. In tho
sixth Inning Captain Ace Stewart of th
Rourke Rangers committed an error of
Judgment that cost the Rame, allowing
Peoria both of Its tallica
Despite the disappointing result the
game was easily the best yet seen here on
the present season's schedule. From the
very beginning the result bung in the bal
ance with the turning of a hair aufflclent
to decide It, and the great assemblage
which overran bleachers and grandstand
ana nowed out onto the field by hundreds
was in a state of excitement from Inning
in tne nrat Inning Genlna scored for
Omaha on hla own atnale. followed h
Fleming's double. From that time the
visitors fought to overcome the tally, but
did not auccecd till the sixth. Then Stone
hit safe aa first man up and Truby followed
with a ground ball to Stewart. It waa
alow, and Ace ran It up well into tbe dia
mond. He waa then cloee to first base and
could easily have caught Truby there, but
some strange twist of his Instinct led blm
to turn around and try for 8toae at second
Dolan caught the ball, but It was too late
and both men were safe
Then did "Podge" Alloway gird up his
loins and pitch baseball, and Lazotte and
vaugnn went out In ahort order. Not ao
Maloney. With a single already to his
credit he hit the double that won the
game. The next man up flew out
Ronrke'a Men Serlona.
More serious play than Omaha showed
during tbe next four tunings was never
seen. Every man who came to the bat
quivered as he faced the twlrler and
gnashed his teeth when he failed to do
execution. So vital waa the situation that
even Johnny Oondlng teased a double out
of bla usually disappointing willow In the
aeventh, but It availed naught. Pitcher
Cox waa on hla mettle and proved equal
to the occasion at every turn. Meanwhile
Podge waa alao Invincible, and Peoria
could not better ite lead, despite errors
in the aeventh by Dolan aad Hlckey.
To add to the climax rain threatened and
huge dropa fell and the visitors exercised
every creed of their craft to delay the game
till It rained so hard that It would be neces
sary to call it. But Pluvlua waa with
Omaha, though he alone of all the gods
showed the Rangers favor yesterday. He
held off the rain and allowed the game to
go on to the end
Tbe ninth came, and Peoria was put out
one, two, three. Dolan came to bat and
made a single. Stewart sacrificed him to
second. Hlckey batted him on to third.
going out himself at first. Two out, with
Oondlng due. Jack Thomae was' substl
tuted, and tbe crowd waa fairly on ita
knees In prjyer that he might repeat hia
wonderful performance of the ninth Inning
In the laat game with St. Joseph, when he
batted for Oondlng and made a home run.
Thomae Haa Stage Frlarht.
But the responsibility of 5,000 heart
aches and 260 points ot percentage In the
league standing waa . too much for Jack,
He took atage fright, and made fouls out of
three balls, then striking out.
Peoria showed a great ball team, and
Cox la a pitcher. Alloway, too. deserves
much praise. Neither team hit well, though
Peoria batted when it waa needed, and
Omaha did not. Stone, whom Rourke haa
farmed to Peoria, waa a great favorite
with the crowd, and Bill Wilson, tbe old
Gate City catcher, was met at tha plate
hla first time to bat with a huge bunch of
roses from old admirers and frlenda.
Maloney did wonderful hitting, batting two
Ingles and a double-out ot three times

NAVY YARD TO BUILD A SHIT
House Bill Frovide for New Oruiser in
Answer to Publio Clamor.
COST OF VESSEL TO BE CAREFULLY NOTED
tntlrlpated that In Thla Manner Itel.
alive Cheapness of Government
and Contract Work Can
(From a 8taft Correspondent )
WASHINGTON, April 27. (Special.)
Chairman Foss of the house committee on
nsvsl affairs, iu speaking of the action ot
his committee authorizing the construction
of one of the proposed new vessels in one
of the government yards, said today: "It
Is an open question as to whether or not
It Is wise to build veseels In government
navy yards. The general belief Is that
money can be saved by giving such work
out under contract. This belief la based
upon the fact first, that government em
ployes work eight hours a day, while
those In outside yards are employed nine
or ten hours. Second, the rate of wages
for government labor Is relatively higher
all along the line than outsiders rav.
Third, the government allows Its employes
two weeks vacation each every year with
full pay, and in addition to thla there are
six or seven public holidays during which
employes do no work but are paid full
wages Just the same.
"I have made a personal investigation
and quite an extensive one at that Into the
methods prevailing among European gov
ernments. I find that In England about
one-half of the vessels now building for
the royal navy are being constructed In
private yards and the other half In yards
belonging to the crown. As Dearly as 1
could ascertain the cost of construction is
slightly lower In the private yards In Eng
land than In those of tbe crown. During
the recent visit of Prince Henry the chief
constructor of the German navy called on
me here and we bad a talk about this sub
ject ot tbe relative cost ot private and
public construction of vessels of war. The
German admiral said that In spite of the
fact that wage are lower In the govern
ment yards than they are In the plants of
private builders a great deal of money could
be saved by giving out contracts to the
private individuals and corporations.
Yields to rnblle Demands.
"We have decided," continued Mr. Foes,
"to make the experiment because of the de
mand from every section of 'he country
where the government yards are located.
The eecretary of the navy will be author
ized to have a battleship or a cruiser built
tn one of tbe government yarde. He Is In
structed to keep an absolute account of
every .dollar expended on this vessel so that
by the time it Is finished congress will be
In a position to Judge as to tbe advisability
of building vessels in the public navy yards
rather than through the contract system."
Representative Hugh Dinsmore of Ar
kansas has won out in the primaries and is
sure of another term In congress. Mr. Dins
more Is a man who Is moat cordially liked.
His .friends stretch from one side of the
bouse to the other and it Is doubtful if there
i another man tn congress In whose suc
cess In bis primary campaign so many of his
associates were eo sincerely Interested. Mr.
Dinsmore has served In the diplomatic corps
and haa had a military training. He Is a
member of the Army and Navy club and Is,
besides, one of the regents of the Smith
sonian Institution. These latter facts were
used by bis opponents in an attempt to de
feat him. A statement was made on the
stump something like this: "Dinsmore Is a
member of tbe Army snd Navy club In
Wsehtngton. ' That club Is composed of men
who are heroes la war and loafera In peace.
He Is also a member of the Board of Re
gents of the Smithsonian Institution. That
organization is one of the swell social clubs
or waemngton. Its members are all dudes.
Do you want to be represented by ouch a
renow as this?" But Dinsmore won out In
spite of the fact that be remained In Wash
ington Instead of proceeding to bis borne ta
rerute these peculiar charges.
