AFTERMATH OF THE TOURSEY
Tennig k'n D.light to Ttm the TitM
SOME PECULIARITIES OF THE PLAYERS
ummrts Jallylac mm Half
Earaeat Jaagllaa; that Aaaaae4 t
Ballery While tha Matches
ine interstate Tennla tournament Just
conciuaea was tba most extensive and sue
eessful tennis event aver held In Omaha and
seems to promise a great future here for the
game. Everything about the affair from
start to finish arouaed nothing but the high
est commendation of all participants. The
Field club courts, six In number, were amnl
for the purpose, and were cracked up by
sucn men as rarker, Sheldon. Sanderson and
Petera ka tha best clay court they had ever
teen. All equipment was perfect and tha
prises were generally dubbed magnificent
With that beautiful challenge cup on Its
nanas, trophy that ha now cost $170 cash
It Is a cinch that the club will hold a tourn
ament each year with tt aa tha principal
pnif, ana Its ram will draw each season a
wider apread list of entries. This morn
ing's trslns are taking the visitors out of
Omaha, but they all say they are coming
back. Ths who go home without even a
consolation prise, and their name Is legion,
say that they have had the time of their
Uvea, and are coming back aure. Dr. Sbel
don, the merry Kansas City dentist, who
waa booked for a winner in both single and
doubles, but wh didn't get a thing, is hap
plor than any of them. Said he: "Why,
I've toad mora frtenda than anyone. I'm
coming back aure."
And that seems to bs the spirit all around.
Meanwhile, the Field club shares It. The
directors feel that the exptns Involved in
tha tournament has been mora than repaid
by tha success achieved. Omaha baa given
one great tennis tournament, and given it
right. Nothing was lacking that ahould em
bellish a cosmopolitan affair of tha kind.
Everything was elaborate, and the Field
club men feel that tha Satisfaction of know
lng this la alona full return for all trouble
The fate of the Chicago men, Petera and
Aahcraft, bringa prominently to mind tha
great amerence Detween ttte game aa
played on grass courts and clay. There
is no denying that grass courts are regu
lation, being according to the national
rule. All the big matches now progress
ing In the east, at Newport and other
places, are on grass. And not everyone
understands how perfect these graaa courts
can be made. To most people the name
grass court" brings up vision of on
certain bounces, ruts and hollows. Not
ao. The grass court for a championship
match la Just like a carpet. One can
hardly believe It grass, so even and level
Is it. You can bet on a true bounce from
them Just aa safely as from a clay court
The only difference la In the degree and
. " .. . . m . o o , Ht,, iuoiv ilea a
great discrepancy. Tha, grass bounce Is a
alow one, an unwilling one and a ahorter,
lower one than from clay. The ball seems
to settle In the grass and anuggle down
for a second before rising.
Thia beat Farnaworth at Chicago, when
ha came wltbing on point of taking the
match from Ashcraft. Farnaworth said it
Waa Ilka learning a new game to be com
pelled to go ao low all tha time. The
aam thing undoubtedly contributed to the
downfall of Peters and Ashcraft here. They
simply round a livelier ball to play. But
of course it is much harder to go from
clay to grass than vie versa, aa a man
can alwaya play a high bound, while a low
one la 'deceptive and harder to get.
There ia undoubtedly a great difference
In the gamea and In the style of play
adapted to each. Strokea which clay court
playera no will not da at all on grass
courta, while atrokea which are puxsling
and effective on graaa lose their potency
and become easy balls on clay. The day
of grass courta In thia part of tha west
cannot b aald to be near at hand, ao it ia
probable that clay playera will continue to
win Interstate prlxea around here.
Another Interesting feature of the tourner
was that It brought ao Dfalnly Into comn-
tltlon the two old points for dispute, "style"
agalnat "winning." As long aa there are
atlcklera for "form" thla will be agitated.
One olasa of players Insist oa a "style" or
a lorm" play and acquire that before thev
learn to win gamea. Othera play anything
that wins, and there you are.
When It'a all aald, la not tha man who
wins the gamea the on who ia playing In
real "style" after all? If ha can win aa
his gam has be not the proper "form," in
stead of his opponent with an elaborate
Latwford and other standard atrokea which
ha refuses to change for any play? Harry
Vardon, the golf champion, says that the
beat "form" 1 what brtnga you th best
results, and so he playa: Hla game ia like
no one' else, and causes tha conventional
one to have epaama. Their aeathetlo senses
are Jarred. Ia not thla true also of tennis.
Should not each player develop hla own
form," adapting it to his physlaue. to hla
temperament? If "etyle," ao-called, doea
not win, why play la 'wtyler
There were plenty of both classes In the
tournament her. Aa th extreme repre
sentative of "atyle" take Parker. He had
style," akd Iota of It, but ha also could win
aomewhat. That waa because his game
was wonderfully develoned. Hovn
Farnaworth .without a cartlcl of "atyl"
beat him out. Parker aays aFrnaworth
playa In "awful form." but what did that
get Parker T "Awful form" beat him.
Aahcraft is another with considerable
form." and where did he landT His "form"
strokes led him out of court and Into the
net most of the time." Ms gee haa great
"atyle," and Bee what It doea to him. How
mairy of hla beautiful atrokea doea he land
safelyt About one In three. He dropped
before Saymond In th second round.
Bendereoa haa some "style," but It doea
not atlck ent much. Tet he la a winner.
He can make monkey of any of the "atyle"
extremists around her. He la not afraid
to drop hi stylish stroke for a winning
on when he cannot aa it It pays to ha
a plugger and a winner.
There were many amusing occurrences in
connection with the tournament. As usual,
there were some fellows whose shirts ware
alwaya pulling eut and flying t th breese;
there were other who were constantly get
ting hit la th head with a wild ball from
som other court; others mho would turn
awkaard somersaults la attempt to get a
paaa; but aa real merrymakers tha doubles
team of Jerome Mage and Dr. Sheldon had
all the reat lasbed to the mast. Every game
thla pair played waa one continual dog Bght
oa their aide the net. Neither could do ear
thing t plea the other; every stroke waa
wrong and each took delight la letting hit
partaer know of hi defection.
Tha rallying waa half In Jest, halt In earn
est. Each pretended to all th credit for
the gamea. and delighted In ahowtng up the
fault a of the other. Thia led t aome en
tertaining oHaloguee wh'ca were by no tueaas
in sotto voce, and from th ftrst day a big
gauery always erwwtec around a court
here theae mea war oa duty, not to aee
their play, but t hear their "rag chewing."
Saturday mornlag especially, when Sander
so gad Holland bat thla pair, they were
eapeclally Irascible. Each was coaching the
other in Do gentle voice.
"Now run! Get on your own aldet Why
didnt yoa get that? Don't bat everythln
into the bet! Now try to win this point
just for once!" These wer some of th
things Ms gee kept handing to Sheldon In
angry tones. The latter waa mor remon
stratlve and querulous In manner. Every
time Magee would try a reckless amash at
th net and drive the ball Into th methel
Sheldon' fsce would assume a most rtdlcu
lously pained expression, and he would
"Don't take those chancea, man."
And when Magee made five double faults
In one gam 8helden waa la clover. "Why,
that ain't what you want to do," he would
aay. ''Tou want to knock the ball ever
tbe net I can get aome of theae barefoot
kids around here to serve doubles."
Then Magee would turn red and go up
ia the air. Seising the balls for another
serve, he would start for the back Una
saying briskly: "Now, we'll brsce up and
take thla game." Then he would serve
another double fault, and Sheldon would
"Not that way. my boy."
On sharp exchange was cleverly at Shel
"Why don't you play tennis f" he in
quired of Magee In a proteatlng tone.
Why, I've only knocked two balls out
thla game," replied Magee.
"Well, I haven't knocked a single ball
out," waa Bheldon'a rejoinder, given la
"But I've. knocked a few in, too," an
swered Magee quickly, and the gallery
Fred Sanderson, Who won the alnrlpg.
la the nicest fellow in the world to play
against or ba beaten by. He alwaya has
a good word for a good pla that beats
him and sympathy for bad luck. Thla
same trait placed him in a peculiar pre
dicament Thursday. Sanderson was play
ing Sheldon In the semi-finals of the sin
gles. He waa beating Sheldon plenty, and
to cheer him up waa saying, "Hard luck,
old man," after every break the "doc" made.
In the second set Sheldon made a rally
and ran a game to forty-love. Aa he mad
the last point by placing the ball clear
out of Sanderson's reach, the latter ab
sent mlndcdly said: "Hard luck, old man."
Sheldon threw down his racket and looked
up in amazement. "What's the matter
with you.V he said. "Do you think I'm
out here trying not to get beat?"
Peters and Ashcraft, the Chicago play
ers, were feeling very badly at the result
of the tournament. They are both mighty
nice, quiet fellows, with not a bit of blus
ter or blow about them, but they did
rather expect to clean tip the boards out
here. Said Peter Saturday:
"I Just feel so ashamed I cannot bear to
walk out in front of these people. I want
to hide In the locker room. It Isn't that I
care about getting beat. I am an easy loser,
ana so la Asncraft I do not mind those sin
gles at all. What hurts me Is that we
haven' shown any tennis at all. I did hope
that we would do something the last day
Just to show the peopitf here tat we can
play tennis. So her we come out this
morning to play Farnsworth and Raymond
doubles. It seemed lik our golden oppor
tunity to show what we had In us In a sort
of good-bye match. Instead of that w
played even worse than w have all week,
and I tell you It hurt me when I know that
the people out here expected ao much of ua."
"The finest set of prize I ever saw gath
ered at a tourney," aald Sanderson. And it
waa about true. Th usue offering at a
western tennis tourney cawnot b compared
16 what the Field club showed. Said one
tuan who played at Chicago In th western
championship a few week ago:
That challenge cup ia simply grand
Why, It beats the western championship
cup clear off th boards. The first prlie
enp, th on to be taken permanently, la
almost aa good aa th western champion
i The two Oalesburg men took their share.
Sanderaon got his nam on th challenge
cup In singles, took th first prli loving
cup for keeps, and get a ahavlng act of
aeven ratora, "one fbr every day," as eo
ond in doublet. Holland took a cut glass
cigar Jar aa Brat prlxe In consolation
alnglea and also received a aet of aeven
rasors aa hla plunder from th doubles.
Farnsworth and Raymond wer not far
behind. The former took the traveling
caaea aa second prlxe In single, and a
Cross kit bag a first in doubles. Ray
mond got another bag for hla doublea.
Both get their namea on th challenge
cupa In doublea.
Meanwhile Young took aecond In con-

by George w. Perkina of the firm tf J P.
Morgan A Co., and also chairman of th

Mr. Corrlgaa aays Lancaster admitted
that when be made the affidavit he did
not know It was to be used in anr stilt
and that he wa governed only by hi
Impressions, a he understood that th
affidavit waa to be uaed only in an advlaory
way In the matter of atock Investment.
lorrigan goes on to ewear that Lancaster

found out a few daya after making th
affidavit that th affidavit wa being used
in ma tei corporation suit and that he
proteated to David Lamar, who got him to

the state and western country generally.
Tnen Mr. Bryan waa Introduced. Hla re-

laughter. The following Is the gist of some
of hi points:
"Ladles and Gentlemen: I am here partly
because Mr. Smyth wished me to come, who

if there la any service I ean .do for the j

am glad, for I will have to do a great deal
to get even, as during the campaign I had :

doea so much for mankind. I am alBO glad
to have my cousin here. I do not cons dor
myself a curiosity, but thought that a mem
ber of n.y family who succeeded in politics
would be a curiosity.
"But I will not make a political speech.
I have plenty of opportunity to make thoaa
and little for other words. . I have made
political speeches for several yeara and have
com to th conclusion that people do not
like them. Peop's don't Jump on those who
preach sermons, so I thought I would dis
cuss Christianity. During th last four
icontha I have been developing a moral
philosophy. I find that the fundamental
truths of human life are the great political
truths. I have taken the word 'civilisation'
for my subject, and am aurprlsed to find
how little haa been apoken or written on
th subject, and how little I knew ot the
word. I looked In the dictionary and en
cyclopedia, but waa forced to make my
own definition. 'Civilisation Is the har
monious development ot tbe human race,
physically, mentally and morally.' What are
we doing to raise up the civilization of
which we are a part? We all have a part
In thla civilisation, our vice lower Its level
and our virtue raise It tip. The moral
element ia paramount in civilisation. In all
nation which have fallen, th moral decay
ba preceded the political. I have heard
people aay that nation grow and then de
cay aa human belnga do. I deny any an
alogy between man and natlona which
make thia inevitable. Nations are made
by generatlona and I ae n reaaon why
future generation ahonld not be equal to
tha preaent; nor why the United States
ahould not. In the future, be greater thai
at preaent. If the nation fall it will b
because of moral decay."
