If it bftdu't been for the desire of Packard

Omaha and Denver would be playing the

On week before the announced termina
tion of the league season. Manager Rourke
Waa in The Bee office, and discussed for
mora than an hour In a private conversa
tion the affaire of the Omaha team, and at
that time he knew nothing- of the proposed
move. It mual have been known to Sexton,
(or he now ooaoea to the front and says he
bad the consent of the national board, and
thia could only have been secured after
ome preliminary correspondence Thua
one la driven Irresistibly to the conclusion
that Packard and Burna constitute the
Western league, ' that Sexton recognises
them aa euch, and that a little thing like
Omaha doesn't cut an Ice "in the ramafe
taent of the league's affairs.
Kourk aaya the cutting off of the six
ramea that would have been played on the
borne grounds ooet blra 12,j00 or 13,000.
Thia may or may not be true, but It cer

so much of a fuss about their way of

aa baa been stated before, Rourke la will

out, aa la talked of, will meet such lively
opposition that the kickers may tire of

' that he be treated as an equal partner In

and that he be allowed to have aomethtng

In the telegraph columna ' yesterday a
message from Milwaukee told of the In
structions tent by President Bexton to
Porter Higby, the business iranoger of the
Milwaukee Western league team to prepare
for next season. This a cheap bit of blus
ter, and deceives no one, unless It la Sex
ton and Packard. The Hlckeyltea are no
longer concerned about the existence of the
Western league at Milwaukee and Kansas
City, and are absolutely in a position to
dictate. Packard and Burns, . who are
financially Interested in the teama at those
cities, are naturally anxious to control long
enough to get back some of the money they
have aunk there, but it is doubtful If they
will have a single voloe beeldea their own

in favor of continuing the struggle any
further. And It's an odde-on bet that In
neither city will the Western open with a

As to Omaha and the American associa
tion, nothing can be raid further than has
already been said. Under the peace agree
ment the territory of each league was as
signed, and Omaha fell to the Western.
Just what the outcome of the muddle will
be may not be known for months, but
there are many earnest aupportera of base
ball here, men who put up their money to
see gamea, who hope that Omaha will land
in the American circuit
Manager Rourke la atlll tussling with

lie has let all of his men go home, each
with a string to him. Lines have also
been thrown out for several new players,

eastern clubs, and Rourke says he will
have a winner next year. Rourke wants to

He Intends to start Just as soon aa he
straightens out the base ball. The idea Is
to form a league, with possibly six teams,
and he Is making inquiry about the propo

far, but it has been suggested that the
only way to And out whether it will prove
a success is to start with an amateur team.
Rourke's Idea la professionalism, and he is
bent on bringing good players here to show
the sporting fraternity what they can do.
A polo team requires five players and a
couple of substitutes. This means that In

BOWLERS PREPARE FOR SEASON

' The boya over at Clark's are making
ready to Ore the opening guns Jn the bowl

months the thunder of the lignum vitae
f-phere will be heard on the alleys. The In
dications are that the sport will be as pop
ulur as ever. In evory sport there are a
number of playere who take- up the game
and then drop It Just as quickly to take
up any oher new thing that comes along.
Bowling was practically rejuvenated a few
years ago, and the faddists came In large
numbers and bowled their arma oft. then
dropped the game. These were the players
who created the boom, and now the sport
la lively and healthy. The weaker teams
have been put out of the business by the
big league, and aa far aa tournament sport
Is concerned, It Is on a higher plane and la
the only popular play now. The loadod ball
la gone, and even the scores are higher

been adopted by the American Bowling as

There is a joke on at the alleys, anl it Is

Each bowler must make a total of 470 or
less pins to be eligible, and to get out It
requires two straight games of (00 pins, or
one, game of COO. The list of ellglbles is
gradually swelling to a big number and the
boys feel quite elated over the fact that in
this list la found the captains of four of
the league teams who are in the oup aeries.
Of course these experts have all had a
whack at the pins, but it remains to be
seen what they will do when the league

ability for its observance? The national
agreement explicitly stipulates that "No
'club shall be permitted to reserve any I . . . . . .
player while in arrears of aalary to him' who hear " , ood work."
The IMS contracts of the western league
players called for their services until faep-
temner xj, ana wiinout consultation wiin
them the term for which they were cm
ployed waa nhortened by ten daya. Thia
arbitrary action doea not a.Tect the obllga-
tlon of the cluba to pay their men for the
full Wrm of their employment to obtain
the Diivllece of reaorvlua them for 1904.
The national board's approval cannot give
validity to an act prohibited by the national
agreement, but in tne case unaer aiacuasion
the Western league clubs are autnoxnxea
to reserve playere to whom they are in ar
rears of salary for a period of ten daya.
If .a1 league can, by ' apecial dis

here there Is more real interest In the out
come of the post-season meeting between
Pittsburg and Boston than there was In
the outcome of the pennant races of the
two leagues. Each team has Its champions.
One side points to Leach, and Bransfleld,
and Wagner, and' Clarke, and Beaumont
and Phelps, and asks "What s Boston go

"What good are your sluggers against

fans get together the merits of the teams
are taken up, and the debates never end.
National league advocates insist that the
Colllna team would have bad to hurry to
keep at the head of the second division in the
National race, and the American boosters
Insist that Pittsburg would have been
working to finish second in the American.
And there you have it The debate as to
whether Lajole or Wagner is the greatest
player that ever lived Is nothing compared

When the Twenty-aecond Infantry, V. 8.
leaves Fort Crook net month for the
Philippines Emll Relchardt, the veteran
bandmaster in the army, will go with it
r.d bid Omaha a last farewell In an official
capacity, for before the regiment returns
ha will have served over thirty years. But
Leader Relchardt has made many warm
personal friends in Omaha and will un
doubtedly visit In this city, and may make
It his home when ho returss to civil life.
For a score of years- Leader Relchardt
has shared the good and bad fortune, and
the easy and hard stations, of the Twenty
second regiment, having been appointed
leader of Its band after being seven years
In the crack West Point band, to enter
hlch it was necessary to win In a com
petitive examination. This will be hla
third trip to the Philippines, for he waa
obliged to return home on account of Ill
ness shortly after his first' trip to the
Islands, but returned thither when he re
covered. He was also with the regiment In J
Cuba, and is credited with having had some
interesting experlencee there, especially on
one occasion when carrying water to the
soldiers during the fighting around Santi
ago, but for publication he only talks about
army bands and music.
Bands Do Good Service.
"I believe that the bands have played
their full part In the Philippine islands,
and that the more the natives hear our
muslo the better it will be for us," he says.
While we were there before we gave a
concert every day and the natives would
come out of their trenches and places of
concealment to listen, coming much closer
than under any other circumstances. Borne
of them would have on only shirts and
breechclouts, and the mud would be stick
ing to their lega, but they neverthelesa
showed a line sense of appreciation. They
would greet classical muslo with applause.
but there waa not even, a 'glad hand' for
the popular or rag-time music, with one
notable exception. Thia was 'A Hot Time,'
which was the tune of yie day when we
first went over there, and which they 'be
lieved to be our national air. We played It
frequently, and the natives soon com
menced whistling and then playing it upon
their own Instruments, and one time when
band of them serenaded some of the of
ficers they played it at the beginning and
end of their serenade.
"No, we will not play Hiawatha' when
we go back, for they might take It up and
think we had adopted a new national air.
The women and children were among the
most attentive and enthuslastio of the
audlenoes at our concerts. Sometimes the
men would take a shot or two at 'us after
they went back to their own lines, but
still I believe the music, as a whole, had a
tendenoy to 'soothe the savage breast' and
make vuem niore friendly.
, Cause sf Changes.
The Bpsnlan-American war and the serv
ice In the Philippines," continued Laauer
Relchardt, "made other change beaidaj
the discarding of the bearskin by drum
majors. Previously the members of the
bands had no guard duty, but In the Philip
pines they were obliged to take their turn
the same aa the other soldiers. The abol
ishing of the canteen, which was opposed
almost unanimously by the older officers
and the best soldiers, also had an effect on
the banda, as a percentage of the receipts
of the canteen was turned over to the
band and was used In the .purchase of new
music, and without this money the bands.
If they are to have plenty of muslo and
get the latest as It comes out, must depend
upon voluntary contributions.
"The Twenty-second regiment Is well
known as a hard marching regiment, las
well aa an efficient fighting regiment, but
It also has another record which Is not so
well known. It la that while band leaders
have come and gone by the tens In other
regiments the Twenty-second Las had but
two band leaders in forty-five years. My
predecessor, Leader Clark, was, with the
regiment twenty-five years and I have been
with it twenty years.
Blgrher Pay for Bad Members.
'T have heard something, but not much, of
a movement to make the army bands larger.
and to Increase the pay of the members.
the argument, as set forth in a recent
magazine article, being that better musicians
and better mualo would thereby be ob
tained. I have not taken an active in
terest In the matter, but the argument
certainly seems to' be a good one. The
band leader must of course have a musi
cal education before they enter th army
and the members of the band must know
something of music, and be musically In
clined, but the knowledge in many cases
is very limited and higher pay might be
an Inducement for others to Join th army
bands. The privates now receive 113 per
month, tne eight corporals and four eer
geants receive 12 additional per month, the
principal musician, who takes the place
of the leader In his absence, receives 13,
per month, and the drum major receives
$25 per month. , ' I
"There are only two married men In the
T,wenty-seoond Regiment band, one of the
sergeants and myself, .and we will leave
our families In this country. One year In
foreign service counts two of home serv
ice, and as I have twenty-eight yeara of

soon reach the retiring point. But I ex-'
