Tennis U Eird by
The week Just pnrscd has seen the bent
tennis tournament ever held In Omaha, and
It successful termination will do much
toward strengthening the game In popular
ity. Throughout the country within the last d If posed of,
tennla languished and Frank took up
bicycle raring and made a nam for him
self In that. With the revival of tennis the
brothers rebuilt their court In their back
t the Country and Field clubs and brought
up many points, which were so apparent
and reasonable that all doubts of the good
which would result to the game were cast
yard and began to get Into the game again, i aside by the few who did not believe In the
This time It was Fred and Frank that were
doing the playing. They won the champion
ship In doubles and Frank won the singles
championship of Kansas In 1S9D. He held
the championship In singles until last year
and was beaten In only two sets In all of
his tournament play during that period.
When the younger brothers decided to
play here this year John and Henry got
out and practiced with them In the back
yard court and, as they were coming up
to watch the play, they decided to enter.
Henry had played little tennis with the ex
ception of his college days at Gettysburg,
when he led the school, but Ms play with
John In doubles was strong and they played
well Into the tournament before being
few years tennis has been growing In popu
lar favor and today Is more firmly fixed In
the public estimation -than ever. It was al
most driven out with the advent of solf,
but It has now found Itself sgaln. City
dwellers have found that It Is the one out
door sport available to them which Is at
once athletic, yet not necessarily punishing,
calling for endurance, agility, muscular con
trol and steadiness, without putting any
train upon the constitution which a man
approaching middle life need fear. It Is the
transition step for the young man of virile
temperament not quite ready for the golf
stage, but for whom foot bull, rowing and
even base ball have become too severe.
Locally Its growth this year has been
very marked, but the play has failed to
bring forth any players above the second
class. The game has depended much upon
the older players, such as Young, Caldwell,
Haskell. Hill and Hopkins. The younger
players, who are growing up, have not yet
reached tiiat point where they can beat the
older men and they are In need of practice
In matches where they will meet strong
men. This Is what the tournament just fin
ished has given them. A number of the
younger players entered and they have
watched with a great deal of Interest the
play as it progressed from day to day. They
all were counted out early Inline tourna
ment, but they have been playing practice
matches with the strong men and have
learned many things that will aid in mak
ing them tennis players.
Featnres of the Taarnasacat.
The success of the tournament has not
been dependent upon any one feature.
Everything has combined to that end. The
players as a class have been of a higher
average ability, the average standard of
play has been higher, the tournament more
largely attended and the management bet
ter than any tournament that has ever been
played In Omaha. Outside of the regular
course of play of the tournament there has
been more of a feeling of good fellowship
and of pleasure at the entertainment received
than even last year's efforts produced. It
has been one of that type of tournaments
which means that next year's will be even
better, as those who have played will
spread word of their treatment and their
belief in the Middle West tournament
through a large circle of players. The en
tries came from six states and were as a
whole the best that these states could send.
The men they-play at home are in their
class or Just a little better and it is these
other men that they will . bring another
The first thing that pleased the visiting
players, when they arrived, was the condi
tion of the courts. Everything that could
be done in preparation had been done. The
Field club spared no expense and Grounds
man Flaverty simply built them over again
In' the few weeks preceding the week
Nowhere could any finer clay courts be
found In the country. The club house
gave thorn ample accommodations la the
'way of locker rooms and baths. "
The men were all strong players and they
started in the first day with a determination
to win. There was no fooling In their play,
They worked. Borne of the good men were
counted out of the play early because of
unfortunate drawing, but most of the
players were paired fortunately In the
earlier matohes. There was a little delay
In the first round because of the Sioux City
tournament holding over Monday. Then
the Bloux City men failed to come and were
defaulted all but Faller, who had won the
Ingles, and Blatherwlck and Holbrook.
Faller Is a Lincoln man and a clever player,
but Fred Eberhardt defeated him in the
second round. Blatherwlck was a good
player and created quite a sensation with
his changing hands in playing the ball
Holbrook also was strong, but he went out
In the third round.
'Kiit m Noted ' Player,
From the very beginning Reuthen B. Hunt
ef Alameda, Cal., was one of the favorites
In the singles. He had a reputation and
. his play In the early matches, when he met
weaker men, seemed far ahead of that of
any of the player. His list of victories In
the east and the middle west was a long
one. He was ranked as the twenty-first
tennis player In the United Btatea, His
record was searched through and It was
found that he had been champion of the
University of California for three years
and had done great work on the Cali
fornia team during thuae years In
the Intercollegiate tournament. . In 1901
he had won the Oulf Btatea championship
and had been' runner-up In the Trl-Btate
tournament at Cincinnati and In the North
western at Minneapolis. These games
drew men of national reputation and It
was no little thing to hold fcls record.
From somewhere came word tkat he had
been beaten by Krelgh Collins at Newport
In the same year in a five set match, but
that the score had been within one point
twice of winning the match for him.
This year his record Is a long one. He had
played In sixteen events and had reached the
semi-finals in fourteen of them and the
finals In seven. He defaulted to A. C. Snow
In the finals in the Illinois State, won the
finals at Syracuse In the New York state
by defeating Edgar Leonard, the Harvard
champion; with Dr. T. W. Stephens he won
second place in the doubles In the Western
Pennsylvania at Pittsburg; with Miss
Wlmer of Washington he won second place
In the mixed doubles in the Western
at Chicago and sgaln won second prise
tn the doubles with A. C. Snow as
partner in the Northwestern at Minneapolis.
It was a truly appealing record for a tour
nament that had never drawn men of so
high class before. He showed elegant form
at the start and played a superb placing
game. He had plenty of pretty
strokes and played a net game that
no one could touch until he met Fred Eber
hardt. Then he was forced to extend him
self and doubts began to coin up as to
whether he waa really the beet man In the
tournament. The other Eberhardt brother
aispenea all or these doubts and he was
acknowledged to be a fine player, but not
invincible to the Middle West tournament
Quartet of Kaaaaas.
MM n. .
i am name cuernarat was an ubiquitous
one throughout the tournament. There
were four of them, all large and husky
men, and the Kansas contingent declared
that the two younger brothers were good
players and the other two not half bad. and
they weren't far wrong. Fred and Frunk,
the younger brothers, staged In the doubles
as a team until the finals and took one set
In that from Holland and Sanderson. Fred
was the first man who met Hunt that tried
his strength. Then Frank met Hunt In thti
finals and defeated him.
As tennis players the Eberhardt boys
have a name, not only at home In Ballna.
but In all Kansas. In the early kl'i Charles
and John were the doubles champions In
Kansas and John held the einglee chamilon
hi for both Missouri and Kansas. Then
With the younger brothers team work
was the strong point of their play, although
Fred had a nasty serve that made a few ,
points and they smashed uncommonly well
at the net. Frank proved to be the
stronger of them all, as had been predicted,
and he showed a very clever style of game.
His one strong point Is his backhand stroke.
He places well with It and sends It through
fast. Again he lobs well and Is hard to
pass, so that few of his lobs are readily
Bone Other Strong; Men.
, Dr. Sheldon was another of the men from
the south, coming from Missouri, where he
had quite a name as a player. He was
here a year ago and lasted into the semi
finals, when he was disposed of by Hunt.
He let Holbrook put him out In the tourna
ment this year, when he should have beaten
hlrrt If he had not been too careful. He
holds the championship of Kansas at
present and will play through the tourna
ments at Atchison and St. Louis this week
Four men came out from Oalesburg.
Sanderson came to defend his title to the
singles cup, and his partner, Holland, came
to work with him In the doubles. Besides
there was Green and Fletcher. The latter
two men were not as strong as Sanderson
and Holland, but played a good enough
game to carry home one of the prises In
the consolation doubles. And so each of
the Galesburg men Is the happier by a
prise at least.
It ' Is peculiar that the doubles should
settle down between the same two teams
that met last year for the championship
again this year. All four of the men In
this contest happened to be fraternity
brothers and the very fact of their being
so added greatly to the interest with which
the feminine side of the gallery watched
Raymond and Farnsworth, who held the
championship In doubles. In meeting their
old opponents, were not In condition to give
a hard fight for It. Until Thursday of last
week Farnsworth had not been on a court
this year and had all of his practice during
the last month, knocking a ball against the
side of the barn. Raymond was not strik
ing the gait he did last year,' either, and
with the lack of team practice they were
scarcely In shape to meet any one In a
Local Management Good.
So far as the treatment of the players Is
concerned, they were greatly pleased. The
ordering of the tournament under F. J. Hill
was all that could be asked. The weather
did not Interfere materially at any time
during the week with the play and the
referee saw that all of the matches were
run off expeditiously.
Then there was entertainment galore for
the visiting players and It was of that
kind which Is the most satisfactory In that
It gets them acquainted with each other
and with the frequenters of the courts and
the veranda. There was something for
them all of the week and they all gave
great praise to the Omaha Field club for
what had been done for them.
The work that Sam Caldwell, Con Toung,
Hill and Towle did In attending to all of
the duties attendant upon the tournament
were hard and exacting and much credit
was given them by all of the players for
what they had done so willingly and at a
great sacrifice to themselves.
One of the members of the Waveland club
summed It all up very well in talking with
several of the members of one of the local
teams. "You see In our club," he said.
"Just what the public links have done for
golf with us at home. While we are a
private, organization we use the public
course to play on. Without It we would
have had no team. And the club repre
sents but a very slight percentage of those
that use the course.
"Des Moines has two public courses, one
a nine-hole course and the other a full
eighteen. The park board has kept close
track of the coat of these public links and
they have found out that the establishing of
links ls no greater than making a park out
of the same amount of ground. The cost
of maintenance, which is the other cost
In connection with a course, has been found
to be less than the cost of maintaining a
park of the same size. And there are more
people using the links than ever used the
parks before the links were made out of
the two parks. In fact the placing of a
course In the park has not rendered It
unfit entirely for a park and has added
greatly to Its usefulness. With us It has
filled a long-felt need.
"Every city In the country as It grows
up has taken Up the matter of public golf
links end you find them all through the
east and middle west tn cities much smaller
than Omaha. Des Moines Is not nearly so
large os Omaha, and, If two courses are
used there by a large portion of the popula
tion, what would one course mean to
Omaha? They tell me that you have a
park Rlvervlew, I believe that Is an Ideal
place for establishing links In. If so, I
believe the park board would be doing
rlKhtly If It took up the matter.
"In every city there are many young
men and women who need exercise of some
kind. Golf would give them that exercise,
but they cannot afford to play the game If
membership in some country club Is neces
sary, as the cost Is too great. Just think
of the clerks and bookkeepers men whose
salaries are low and work is exacting and
shut In. What they need is exercise.
With the possible exception of tennis, there
Is no form of sport that they can turn to
that does not take too much time or money
but golf. There are many young boys, too,
who have not reached that point where
they would Join a club for the sake of
playing golf but who would use a publlo
course if they might. In Des Moines there
is a generation of younger players grow
ing up. The high schools have their golf
teams and there are numerous little teams
made up of the younger set. Hero .you
have no players of this class; they are the
older men- who have taken ur the game
after It Is too late in life to become more
than a fair player. One of our best play
ers Is the younger Gounand boy. He Is
not quite 16 years old and he Is a product
of the publlo links. Omaha has no boy
that can play with him at all. Or If they
have it Is some caddy boy that dares not
show how good he can play, as he Is not
supposed to have had any practice. They
tell me that there are caddy boys that can
go around the course at the Field club
tinder 100. But those boys dare not tell
about It, as they are not supposed to have
used the course there, and every one knows
that there Is no place where they could
have learned. If there was some place
where boys like these could play when
ever they wished to you might find soon
that there were some mere boys In Omaha
that could play as good a game as most
of the men."

the tail-end fight is going to be a merry

Plan Where All Who Want Cen Play
. the Gaaao la Now Being; .
The desire on the part of the local golfers
for publle links In Omaha has grown
greatly with the two days' stay of the Des
Moines players in Omaha a week ago. The
fact that the Waveland and University Golf
club waa an outgrowth of the publlo links
of Des Moines waa sufficient In Itself to
create a stronger feeling for a publle
course. And, besides, the Des Moines play
ers all talked publlo links in the evenings
victories indicates. Papa Bill hasn't quit
looking for a good pitcher and hopes to
add another to his staff before the last days
or the season. One more good pitcher would
be a great lift to the team Just now. How
ever, as George Walker says, the schooling
Faul Companion Is getting this season Is
making him certain as one of the top
notchers for another year. He Is learning
what can't be told him, and really has the
making of a good pitcher In him. Hender

showing, but he Is quite young yet, and

veteran and will be of service to the team
as long as he remains with It.
Developments of the week point to the
breaking up of several of the teams of
the Western league. Hughy Duffy has
been offered and will very likely accept the
management of the Comlskey team In the
American league next season. . Cockman
goes to the American and Gatlns to the
National, and O'Neill will very likely bring
up in Boston American company, as Kill
lea, who already owns Stone, is looking
him over. Fohl and O'Leary of Des
Moines go to Cincinnati, and Dundon and
Jones of Denver will be In the Comlskoy
pack. Schlel Is also quite likely to be
taken on by one of the big league teams,
and several others now playing in the
Western are looking for engagements.
Omaha will not graduate anyone this sea
son, the first time in many years, but this
has been an off year for Omaha In many
Debating the matter of batting during
the week. Manager Rourke gave It as his
opinion that the secret of the light hitting
In the Western is that the pitchers are
generally stronger. "I never saw such a
lot of pitchers as we have this year," says
Mr. Rourke. "They are all strong, heady
fellows, many of them veterans,- and all
with good execution. More than that,
they are backed up by the best kind of
catchers. Take Oonding, Lucia, Messltt,
Bill Wilson, Schlel, Fohl, Doran, McCon
nell and Garvin and you have about as
good a bunch of backstops as anybody
would want to, see work. They are all
working well with their pitchers, and the
result is the batter has to hustle for
everything he gets. And anybody that is
of the opinion that he Isn't getting his
money's worth when he goes to a Western
league game Is entitled, to at least one
more guess. Not only are the pitchers
being well supported behind the plate, but
around the diamond and in the field they
have had the best of backing, and I can't
see why anyone would want faster ball
than they have been getUng all summer
long. Omaha has had more hard luck In
the games than I ever thought could hap
pen, but we've had it and that's all there
is to It."
Mr. Rourke says that Qus Dundon has
not lumped Denver, but will return as soon
as he Is able to play, and will finish the
season with Mr. Packard, as he agreed to.
"Dundon is as square a player as ever got
Into the game," says Rourke, "and he likes
Packard well. He la getUng the money in
Denver, and I know he will keep his word.
He Is sick at his home in Pittsburg, but
as soon as he can get out on the field
again he will be seen In a Denver uni
form." While Denver Is under debate It Is pleas
ing to note that the papers out there are
coming to understand that Omaha la the
keystone to the Western league arch. All
the talk of "firing BUI Rourke" has been
dropped. Mr. Mallon, sporting editor of
the St. Joseph Press, was In Milwaukee
during the week and while there reiterated
the story he sent out from St. Joseph some
days ago that Tommy Burns had said that
the Western Intended to drop Milwaukee
and Kansas City and get -rid of Rourko.
Burns has denied this report, but most
people are inclined to think the sporting
editor of the Press talks by the card. Only
the Western will not fire BUI Rourke. If
Mr. Rourke wants to aell his Omaha hold
ings and relinquish his franchise In tha
Western that Is his business and no one
will object, but if the Colorado Springs
magnate thinks he can "fire Bill Rourke"
he will find he has the people of Omaha
to reckon with. Rourke has made the
Western league and with him rests Its fate.
If there is any "firing" d,one the Western
may as well prepare to put up the shutters.

MANAWA SAILORS AT OSHKOSH
Local Tacht Club Will Start Twe

The Manawa Tacht club will make its
first bid outside of its own waters this
week for sailing honors. The occasion
Is the annual regatta and races of the In
land Lakes Yachting association, which the
local club Joined last spring. The boat,
which is a Class B boat, la a local boat,
having been built and designed In Omaha
by Al Stevens and John McAllister. It
was started on Its overland trip to Osh
kosh a week ago last Friday and the
crew followed last Friday.
It will be with a great deal of Interest
that the outcome of the races will be
watched, as the local men are not exactly
certain where they stand in boating of this
class, and this will give them an Idea of
the ability of the boats and of the sailing
knowledge of the club members. A great

Is the club representative, particularly In a
heavy wind. It is not a light wind boat
at all, having been beaten at Manawa
quite regularly In light breeses. But in a
heavy wind Argo has proven well nigh
invincible on Manawa and has beaten out
all of the other boats with ease.
The real reason why the Manawa sailors
have such confidence In Argo is because of
Its showing against Manawa. Manawa is
a Jones & Laborda boat and Jones & La
borde are considered to be the best build
ers of boats of this class In all of the
country covered by the Inland Lakes
Yachting association. For five years they
have built the winner of the Class A
races and, when they built Manawa, it
was expected had turned out another mas
terpiece. But Argo, home built and home
planned, outsailed her from the start.
In a heavy wind there waa no comparison
between the two boats, and in a light
breeze Manawa did not greatly surpass
Argo In sailing qualities. From the very
start and all through this season Argo
has been the boat on Manawa and it was
generally conceded almost from the start
that she would be the boat to be sent to
Oshkosh. With a light breeze she will
hardly win, and with the heavy wind It
should be certain that Argo should win.
However, Lake Winnebago is a far larger
lake than Manawa. It Is thirty miles
long and twelve wide. The waves In heavy
wather will be higher and the blunt nose
of Argo may dip under. If It does Che will
not be able to win in heavy weather either.
But all of this Is mere guess work. Argo
Is a good boat, the best on Lake Manawa,
and she la certain to be in the racing at
Oshkosh, If not one of the winners.
Lew Clarke, captain of the boat, is prob
ably the best sailor on the lake and he
knows Argo's every point. What can be
gotten out of her he will get. The other
two of the crew are Al Stevens and John
McAllister, while Arthur and Paul Cooley
and Jim Wallace have gone with thera and
may change about with some of the crew
before the race. Argo really needs four
men te sail her and an attempt will be
made to have them allow her to carry 25
pounds Instead of 40). With this sxtra

twenty-flve pounds the crew could be
selected so that she would have four men.
In Class B there will probably be twenty
boats sailing against Argo and many of
them will be crack boats and the men In
their crews are all experienced In the work
of sailing on just such Iskes as Winnebago

The delegates to the meeting of the as
sociation at Oshkosh are John McAllister

On Manawa the bulk of the races have
fallen to Argo this year and she has won
the June series, the club series, which
takes the Lindsay cup, and has two In the
holiday scries, practically assuring that to
it. In the challenge cup series Argo has been
badly out of It, not having a point, while
Manawa leads with eight points, the'
Andover Ave, and Xenla three. Next year
the club will form g syndicate and build one
class A boat for the Oshkosh regatta, while
a second class A boat may be built by
private enterprise. It Is expected that the
Council Bluffs Rowing association will
be made a member of the
association and four boats
