Kid Nichola' crew of Kansas City slug
gers turned the tablet on Omaha Sunday
afternoon at Vinton Street park by dtsn
Ing tip ecven run, in tbe eighth Inning and
ending th, game by a score of to s.
Bunny title, and warm alf brought out
4.000 of the fani and they cheered and
Jeered, clapped with glee and jangled as
they felt like It. The crowd waa In good
temper and gave Kid Nichola an ovation
when he stepped Into tha box.
In the first Inning Kanaa, City scored a
run oa a double to left .field by Waldron
and a single by Miller. Miller's grounder
dm a hot one and Dolan mado a stab at it
nd fumbled. Then he got mad and atared
at It while Waldron ran home. Then ho
picked It up and threw Miller out at sec
ond for trying to stretch his hit. After
that Johnson kept the hits scattered until
the eighth, when they landed on him good
Meanwhile the Omaha men started In to
do things. They had their tatting raga
with them and hit Nichols freely, but with
out success until the third. Then Johnson
waited and got a para ' to first. Carter
went out at first and Johnson reached sec
ond la a cloud of dust. Oenins sent a hot
one out through the diamond and Into the
middle garden, and Johnson sauntered cjef
the plkte. The crowd got exoltel with the
score tied -and went wild. 8o Preston spat
oa bis . hands and swatted a pretty curve
out Into right field and stretched It Into
two baga while they were trying to stop j
Oenins from getting to third. Wright tried
to hit teo bard and failed to touch the
bait, and Dolan popped up a wee one to
the Infield. ' ,
Add Brae of Raaa.
la the fourth Stewart slammed into a
floater with encouraging results, landing
on first In a jiffy. Patterson sacrificed him
to second, Thomas singled and Stewart
sauntered over the plate. Big Johnson was
up next and he took his pick of th ball
and laid It against the right field fence
and Thomas rippled over the plate. But
that was all tor that Inning.
With seven bits against him In five ln
nlngs, Nichols took to the coop and Hess
began retailing curves. Thomas saw the
southpaw in all of his tall awkwardness
first and smiled a smile that landod him
on third. . Hess got mad and struck out
two men, but Oenins refused and sent the
ball down tbe third base line so fast that
It whistled like an automobile. It waa
good (or two bases and brought Thomas In.
In the seventh Dolan straggled onto the
first cushion while they were putting
Wright out at second. Hess crossed hit
fingers and started to do things with Ace,
but It was no go and a double rippled Into
tt Sialyl 1B.a.AM W
and then there was) Thomas. He landed
oh the ball genUy. and got a base for his
trouble', "while Ace came In. Things were
running as smoothly as a church wedding
and the score was I to 1, with Omaha on
the credit side of the ledger.
. Visitors Tavke Their Tara.
, But things were not what they seemed.
. Hess was anxious for revenge and he rapped
out a single In the first of tbe eighth.
Ketcbam got" another and Waldron flew
jput. Miller,. . the star, hitter t the.Kaw
aggregation,-tapped "th ball gently and It
. went out Carter's way, but Carter failed
to hang to It. That let Hess In and Kahl
drove the ball way out to the tall, tall
grasses beyond Oenins. ' It was good for
three baga and scored two. "Big" Johnson
was mad and Immediately struck out Web
ster end felt better. Then Messltt slammed
the ball and the score that tied cams la.
Weeks swatted the ball and It went up
- where the swallows fly and Wright slg--,
sagged and circled around the diamond
'after It, only to drop It when It did come
down. Ulrlch got a single and the seventh
ruu came In. It was Hess, long and angu-
lar. to the bat. and ha still foamed with
what they had don. to h.m He took W.
bat like a broom and swept the ball out
Into left and got a couple of bases and
brought In two more runs. That was the
list of It, though. Omaha could not get a
mah beyond second during the rest of the
tamo, and sven the Kansas City men for
got to kick on O'Neill's questionable judg
ment of balls and strlkss.

sgalntt $1,001,69M3 of Imports, giving an
excess ot exports of $413,190,271. Exports
never reached $500,000,000 In a single year
until after 1870. In ' 1880 they passed, for
the first time, the $750,000,000 line; In 1832
they sxceedsd $1,000,000,000, and In ths
twelve months ended March lsst, they were
$1,414,786,S4; and should the exports of
April, May and June average as high ss
those for March they would bring the total
exports for the fiscal year past the $1,600,-
Imports Greatly Increase.
The growth In Imports has been espe
cially marked during the past five years.
In ths twelve months ended March, 1883,
they were $660,000,000 In value; In 1900,
$838,000,000; In 1902, $902,000,000, and In 1903,
$1,001,696,483. While It Is not customary to
state the foreign commerce by annual per
lods ending with March, the fact that ths
figures just presented by the Treasury Bu
reau of Statistics which cover the twelve
months ended March, 1903, show for the
first time a total importation of $1,000,000,
000 la a twelve months' period, Justifies a
presentation of tha ' figures for an annual
period ending with March and covering a
term of years.
The following table shows the total 1m
ports and exports In the twelve months
ending with March, from 1895 to 1903:

Imports are not yet - completed by tho
Treasury Bureau of Statistics, tha figures
for February and for the eight months
ending with February show a marked In

1903, 61.3 per cent,. were manufacturers'
materials, while In February, 1902, cly
47.4 per cent were ' manufacturers' ma
terials. In the eight months ended Febru

amounted to $320,000,000, against $270,000,

Mntno Treohle interest Experts,
Naval sxperts will . pay close attention
to the repairing ot the battleship Maine at
the Cramps shipyards at Philadelphia,
where It was built. The vessel only placed
In commission within the last few months,
typified. It waa believed, the highest de
velopment In tbe art of building war vessels
up to that time. That the mounting of Us
guns should have proved defective Is dis
appointing, whether due to a mistake In
the plans or not. It is confidently ex
pected, however, that while the repairs are
being made much valuable Information will
be gained as to the proper mounting ot
guns on ' war vessels. It Is well known
that as the length of the recoil ot a gun Is
shortsnsd, the strain becomea more severe
and the parts sustaining the strain must
be correspondingly strengthened. Thst
they were not so braced In Maine Is quite
as likely to be due to' inadequate provision
In the plans as to ' fsnlty construction.
Intimacy of the closest character neces
sarily exists between the gun and Its
mount and an Increase la the caliber or
range of the former calls for a change In
the latter to meet the new requirement.
A failure to properly adjust the car
riage to the gun ia nothing new In naval
annals and 'the accident to the guna on
Maine has recalled to ordnance experts the
fate of the cruiser Brooklyn. Scarcely had
Commodore Schley hoisted his flag on the
vessel In Hampton Roads, preparatory to
his departure for the West Indiea at the
beginning of the Spanish war, than. In the
placed so as to render extensive repalra
necessary. Tims did not suffice to remove
Brooklyn to tbe Cramps yards, where It was
built, so that It as taken to Newport
News and work prevtecuted night and day
until It was pronouaMd fit for duty. But
still the mounts were Insecure, for In the
battle of Santiago all the five-Inch guna
were again similarly dMablsd.
Qld Tube Wtur Revived.
Conflicting views ars held of the reported
damage on the boilers' of Maine. Acci
dents to boiler tubes are ot common oc
currence and all ships using the water
tube boilers carry with them extra tubes
so that aa weaknesses develops they may
be replsced by new ones.
in tne case ot juaine, nowevar. ex-
ceptional interest attaches as tbe repairing many months languished In a Transvaal
ot its tubular boilers ao soon after it was Jail under sentence of death. Timely in
Disced In eommtaaion. aa it furnlahaa Rar tnrventlon of the American and British
Admiral Melville, chief constructor, an ad-
dltional argument against the use of the
Nlclausse tollers with which Maine is
equipped. A contest of vast Importance to
the bollermakers has been In progress In
ths Navy department for some time. Simi
lar contests have been waged in ths naval
establishments of Great Britain, France
and Germany, the prlsea being of great
value. All tbe water tube, are protected
by patents and the official Indorsement of
the government means millions of dollars
to ths firm manufacturing those which can.
Aside from the tact that It would mean a
virtual monopoly ot furnishing all boilers
for government vessels, ths standard aet
by the navy la so high that tha business of
furnishing boilers for the merchant
martns would naturally follow.
Tbe English admiralty recognised the
grave responsibility attaching to an official
Indorsement and after examining aad test
ing thirty-six types reported that none
showed such unquestioned merit as to
Justify Its recommendation as a standard
for naval uae. A particular test wss mads
of the Bellvllle, but the committee coc&ntd
its choice for large veiaela to the Nl
clausse, Babcock and Wilcox and Purr and
Yarrow. The committee compared the
merits of tbs cylindrical and water tubs
boilers and reports that while the au
perlor economy of the cylindrical boiler
vm uuitusauuavu, mm n nuMvary yuuu t
view, that Is, the necessity of making steam
quickly, the water tubs boiler must be
deemed more suitable for naval purposes.
In order to meet all emergencies, there
fore, the committee recommended a mixed
battery of boilers of both types, the
cylindrical for steaming at ordinary speed.
and the water tube boilers tor raising speed
Melville Has Sew thanee.
In the I'nlted States navy the water tube
boiler I, preferred and Admiral Melville
strongly favors the Aabcock and Wilcox
boilers. His opposition to the Nlclausse
boilers Is aa pronounced as his sdvocscy ot
the Babconk and Wilcox, and when the
specifications for ths new 16,000-ton battle
ships recently contracted for were drawn
be secured tbe Insertion, almost at the
last moment, of a clause requiring the use
of the Babcock and Wilcox boilers. A fierce
contest ensued for the manufacturer, of
the other boilers felt sn Injustice hsd been
done them In shutting .them out from com
petition and the Howenatein, Nlclausse and
others, struggled for recognition. The bid
ders also protested against being compelled
to Install the Babcock and Wilcox boilers
for as tbe makers of this type were thus
given a monopoly they were enabled to
charge what they pleased. It Is said ths
Babcock and Wilcox boilers will cost the
contractors, the New York Ship Building
company, and the Cramps, respectively,
early $90,000 more than If the Nlclauass
tyoe could be used.
Contractors for war craft have almost
uniformly maintained that as they are re
quired to g-uarantse the speed of the ves
sel they should be entitled to choose the
type of boilers.
It may be reasonably expected that Ad
miral Melville will use the accidents to
the tubu of the Nlclausse boilers on Maine
as an evidence of the correctness of his
conclusion that this type Is Inferior to the
B. ss W." and as a confirmation of his re
fusal to permit the Nlclausse boilers to be
substituted for the "B. ft W." In tbe new
The opponents of the Nlclausse boiler
sought to make capital out ot the reported
failure of Maine on its offlclsl trial trip
to reach the required speed of eighteen
knots, the preliminary report giving It a
fraction less than that speed. It was shown
later that the drifting of certain stsks
boats carried It slightly out of its courao
and the revised figures gave the official
speed of eighteen knots, snd It is believed
It could make eighteen and a half knots
under favorable conditions.
It Is pointed out that accidents to ma
chinery have been known to happen before
and that when the navy Is opposed to a cer
tain type of gun, vessel or machinery, its
desirability Is pretty certain to be demon
strated In time.
PONY VISITS IN white house
Archie Roosevelt's Desire to See His
Pet Is Gratified by Ingenious
WASHINGTON. April 26. Archie Rooee
velt, who Is recovering from an attack of
measles, had a visitor tbe other day, whose
call will do more to restore him to health
than all the medicine the doctor can give
him. ' Soon after Archie began to ronvaleace
he begged to be allowed to see his spotted
pony, Algonquin, which Is his constant
companion when he is well. It was too
soon for Archie to leave his room and Mrs.
Roosevelt wss tempted to decline the re
quest. Charles, the groom who looks after
Algonquin and who also Is a great chum
of Archie, thought the matter over and
concluded that It Archie wanted to sss hla
pony he should do so.
Without confiding his plan to anyone, he
led the pony the other day Into the White
House and along the corridor Into the ele
vator. Tbe attendants were too much sur
prised to say a word until after tbe ele
vator had disappeared. When the second
floor waa raached Charles led the pony into
Archie's room. To say that Archie was de
lighted expresses It mildly, and the pony
also seemed to enjoy the visit. This is the

This plan Is to have all liquor dealers

desirable than the bonds usually given.
A member of tbe counoll said to a Bee

the suggestion. Bonds In a surety com
