Shy at the gute.
When the war between the Western end
American association was declared off
ire all looked forward te what the politi
cian call a season of unexampled pros
perity, but It doesh't appear to have struck
either of the leagues so far. Omaha Is the
only western town that Is furnlrhlng any
thing; like docnt attendance, and even the
crowds here have not threatened to break
down the grand stand yet. In Denv.T,
which always was good for a crowd, lffs
than VO people paid their way In to see the
lost Omaha game, which was described by
the Denver papers as being the fastest
game of ball ever played in the town, a
contest full of brilliant plays and sensa
tional features, in which Omaha made no
errors and Lenver made but one. Colorado
Springs has been to the bad from .the start.
Lh Moines has turned out fair crowds,
and Sioux City has done much, better than
could bave been expected from the position
of the team in the race. fit. Joseph, with
the fastest team It has had in years, is
giving the poorest support ever noted in
the Missouri town. Why Is this? In Col
orado somo excuse exists, for the business
affairs of the state have been practically
prostrated for months on account of -the
labor troubles. Colorado Springs suffers
especially from this condition, and Denver
has had more than its share of the pre
vailing stagnation; but no such condi
tions exist In the valley, and the teams
along the river are all located In towns
where business Is good and the peaple
prosperous. Sum other reason must be
in the American association the same
Condition is true. St. Paul, with a splendid
organization, a new down town park, and
the very good prospect of winning another
pennant. Is turning out week-day atten
dance around the 100 mark; Minneapolis
isn't doing much better, and the Kansas
City figures are right around the spot they
touched during the war times. One doesn't
know just what reason to ascribe for this
state of affairs. One thing is certain, the
'. attendance must Improve or the team own
ers will be further behind thaa they were
at the olose of the war.
It la a mistake to think that because the
war Is ended and some of the fancy salaries
have been out down that the article of
ball furnished la not up to the standard.
Nothing .could be farther from the facts.
Ail the teams are playing bang up good
bill, and every game Is an example of
this. In the Western league, for example,
the wide disparity between the teams, as
shown by the standing table. Is not at all
an Indication of the merit of the clubs as
playing organization. AU the valley teams
were handicapped by the weather that
prevented preparatory work, while the
mountaineers were favored with weather
that permitted them to get Into good con
dition for the opening of the season. With
long series on the home grounds, both
Denver and Colorado Springs got big starts,
but they did not repeat the string of vic
tories when theyt got away from home,
nor at home on the next showing. Bt.
Joseph has so far played the fastest and
most consistent ball of any of the teams,
and Is making a good stand right now.
Omaha has not yet quite got into the sea
son's stride, but Is coming fast, and Des
Moines Is In the same condition, Sioux
City has suffered to such extent from
difficulties attending the organisation of
an entirely new team that It appears to
be hopelessly last, and yet the new blood
that has been put Into the club seems to
Indicate "that It will have to be reckoned
with all the way from now on. It Is ab
solutely certain that the race for the pen
nant la going to be a olose as any ever
held In the west, and with the normal
degree of Interest, the attendance ought
to be on ' paying basis.
Denver has been the scene of the most
persistent assault on the port of the home
roasters ever known to history. Omaha

j that would rank fair In almost any sort
yiof contest, but the Omaha home roaster Is
a lily-white amateur compared to his Den
f ver -brother. Out in the mountain town
1 . the team could do nothing that would
please a large portion of the populace. It
Is roasted if It wins and roasted if it loses.
Not a good word of any kind . Is heard
for the players or the management. The
team Is one of the best that ever wore
the Denver uniform. It has played good
ball and deserves good support. If it were
'in Omaha It would have it, and It should
get it in Denver. For that matter, the
quality of base ball being presented by
the Western league Just now will com
pare with that furnished anywhere in the
country, and the pennant raoe promises
to be a scramble and not a procession from
now on. The home roaster should be

Jimmy "Chippy" McGarr, well remem
bered In Omaha as a member of the team
here in 18S8 and of other Western league
teams In ether seasons, who played with
Brooklyn and other National league teams,
and who was an umpire one season for
the National, la dead at Worcester, Mass,
his life going out In an asylum where he
has len for some time incurably Insane.
His Insanity is ascribed to his sufferlnfs
from ecsema, with which he had been
afflicted for some years. Jimmy McGarr
was one of the best third basemen- In
the business !.i his day, and was a player
who always had the attention of the grand
stand, the umpire and everybody else
about the grounds during the progress of
the game. He knew all the tricks of the
business:, good and bad, and was In the
game from start to finish, and no one could
ever tell when he was getting ready to
pull off something. If he couldn't think
of anything else to do, he would swipe a
ball or a bat from the opposing team, and
get the players stirred up that way. There
were few dull moments In the game -when
Chippy was feeling right,
Sloux City turned Tommy Hess loose
during the veek and Colorado Springs put
a can on Dusty Coons. His Dustlets Is due
In the Cotton States or some other refuge
for aged and decrepit ball players. . Omaha
showed him up twice, once here snd once
at Colorado Springs, and It was a sort of
solace to Papa BUI to see Coons get It,
for Rourke hasn't forgotten the Jump of
Dusty from Omaha to Louisville. And
maybe Dusty will remember It, now. Still,
there's hope for him. Podge Alloway and
Theo Breltenstein are doing well In the
south, and there's where Goons should head,
Young Brown, who Joined the Omaha
team at Lincoln and won from Des Moines
on Thursday, appears to be sit that his
colllege record promised for him. He has
splendid control, plenty of speed and a
great assortment of curves. With the
proper coaching he will become a 'great
pitcher. The Rourkea are pretty well fixed
in the delivery department Just now, and
there ought to be something doing.
It Is surprising how much faster a man
can learn to do a thing when It's for pleas
ure purpose than when it Is to be done In
the line of work. It doesn't take the
ordinary man more than a day or two
to get on the knack of runnnlng an auto
mobile, no matter If he doesn't know the
difference between a steam guage and a
washing machine and most of those who
purchase auto are of this order when it
comes to mechanics. But If the same man
were to undertake to run an electric car
It would take him weeks of painstaking
labor, and then he would probably go

George Holmes of Lincoln has been
among the Omaha visitors during the pre
sent week, snd while he came on the cars
went home on his own chug wagon over
land. He, saw and fell In love with
White and purchased It on the spot. The
rain had made the road Into rivers
some points, but with a man to wade
ahnd and cast a lead occasionally,
reports that he got along very well. Holmes
was accompanied on the trip by Mr. Sidles
of his own town, who drove a Cadillac,

noon and was at home all unharnessed at

day to brag about it in about the same
length of time.
w ouia that some of the doubting
Thomases, who believe that sailing a boat
is but another way of loating, could have
been at Lake Manawa last Saturday and
Sunday while the races were In progress,
They certulnly would have been obliged to
take a reef In their opinions. It was
wild hike for the high side of the boats
from start to finish, with a mixture o
"low-brldgo" on a smashing Jibe when
those big sails swung around, and a good
deal of gymnastic work when tho light
sails had to be set. On Saturday the
Manawa won In a heavy breeze. The Argo
lost, partly through the crew getting Its
wires crossed when they tried to shake a
reef. The .Manawa crew on that day sailed
a perfect race, and worked with a rush
that was right. Everything seemed to
come their way except tho swash, and they
shook their reef In an Instant. But the
next day the pride that goeth before
fall got In' Its work from the call of time,
and the crew went down to ignomlnous
defeat. Maybe it was the bright new oil
skins that the Manawa men donned for the
occasion that spoiled their luck. Anyhow
they operated like land lubbers while the
Argo sailors hove away like true sea dogs,
The Manawa's crew didn't come to until
the other boat was so far In the lead that
there was nothing doing. They were beaten
by two full minutes. This gives the Argo
three of the trial races and the Manawa
one, with four more to be sailed. The In
terest as to which will defend the cup when
the St Joe men come after It Is becoming
Intense, and while the Argo has the better
of the argument so far It Is no sign that
It will have when the other races have
been finished. It Is the general opinion
that either of these boats will do all kinds
of fancy blowing around the craft fyom
aown the river. But that suggestion, too,
Is subject to change without notice, for no
one knows the first thing about the kind
of boat that will be sent against the cup
defenders, whichever It may be. One thing
la certain, it will have to be of tl)e flying
machine order to turn the trick. Empkie,
Hass and Rogers compose the committee
to select the defender, as between the Man
awa and Argo, and upon their Judgment
much of the happiness of the club depends.
Manager Chambers of the Field club ball
team is a long way from being cast down
or broken up over the failure of his green
backs to play winning ball. He accounts
for the fact that they have made the heavy
end of the score only once out of five or
six tries on a very logical ground, too. For
one reason and another he has been obliged
to switch the positions of his men In nearly
every game that has been played, and if
there Is one thing more than another that
will file off all the fine points of a team's
playing, as a team, that Is It. Put a man
onto first base or into. left field, or any
other position, and let him stay there until
he has demonstrated that that's his posl
tlon or that It isn't and very soon the men
will begin to fit together In a way that will
win games, but where a manager has to
play his shortstop on first- one day and be
hind the bat the next there are bound to
be errors that will do things to the best
nine players that ever chewed gum. Cham
ber's middle field man who had to cover
second bag in the hard-fought game with
the Thurston Rifle team the other day,
made an error that lost the game by let
ting In two runs In the tenth inning, when
the Field club men had the game p recti
cally won by one tally. And there you are
for a case In .point. Tou couldn't blame
the man, either. He did the best he oould,
but he was out of place and proved it.
That second Field club team that lined up
In Its final form for the first time the other
day Is no slouch, either, Judging by the
way it tore up the diamond dirt around
the vicinity of 'the home plate. If it keeps
to that gait it will soon be able to furnish

That much talked of base ball game be
tween the hard worked employes who kill
time at the city hall and those who eke
out a miserable existence at the expense of
the county seems to have dropped out of
sight with a loud kerplunk. The county
plodders had a challenge all framed up
and partly written by the master hand
of Charlie Moriarty of the district clerk's
offloe, but whether it died a-bornlng or what
did become of It nobody seems to know,
and If they do they won't tell. It's too
bad. too, for that game was to have been
for blood and other liquid things of a
more inspiring and cheerful nature and to
have It passed up Just as tb,e heated term
is getting, in Its strong licks seems a pity.
Meantime, now that the county boys have
crawled into their holes and pulled the
holes in after them, the city fellows are all
swelling up and saying: "Course they
didn't dare to challenge US." But then, the
good old summer time hasn't gone by and

age up to the sticking point yet
Speaking of sclenUflo games of ball, about
the most elaborate one that has been 'played
at In thin village for a good while took
place last Sunday between the married
men and those who are not known to be
married wbo compose the Heidelberg club
and vote, most of the time, in the Second
ward. There were three policemen, two
doctors of medicine, one of law and none
of divinity, and the rest butchers and va
rlous things, and Clyde Snndblad, whose
occupation is somewhat a matter of doubt.
He played on the .unmarried men's side.
The game took place on a back lot In the
Second ward and with the score 67 to 53,
or something like that, at the end of the
second Inning was called on account of
darkness and because the third base com

The nice things that she members of the
Omaha Driving club are saying of them
selves and each- other these days are per
fectly natural, as well as excusable, under
the circumstances that attended their first
and now their second meet of the season.
In . view of the unparalleled success that
attended the first venture the president and
other officers of the organization have
deemed It advisable to go a step further,
and In conformity with this last projeot
Secretary Carr has issued circulars to all
the club members In which he notifies them
that the park commission has finished the
construction of what Is known as the
speedway, along the southwest boulevard,
about two blocks south of Hanscom park.
'and have taken great pains and Incurred
much expense In preparing the same for
exhibitions of speed by the culsens of
Omaha." Without stopping to geny that
any of the "oltlzens of Omaha" are par
ticularly fast it has been demonstrated to
everybody's satisfaction that they have
some fast horses, and for that reason It
has been thought best to ask the club
members and their friends to Join In a
parade and practice exhibition each alter
nate Saturday afternoon, when the weather
will permit, the next meet being this
coming Saturday. These races will be en
tirely informal, and any owner of a fsst
horse or one threatened with speed will
be welcome to contest. Incidentally, in
response to the expressed wish of a num
ber of Council Bluffs horsemen who desire
to become members of the club proper It
has been decided to make a material re
duction In the membership fee for such,
who are so far removed from the track that
they will not derive as much benefit there
from as local members..
One amusement Institution that has
served to while away many a weary hour
for the muscular youth of this city went
by the board last week, when the Gate
City bowling alleys were torn up and out
to give plaoe In the near future to a store
of some description. These alleys were
among the first and beet In this city since
the time when bowling under present rules

west, and many are the hard-fought team
battles and many the hair-raising shots and
scores that have been made upon them.

grain of braggadocio In the statement that

The Country, club has been challenged
and accepted the defl to play a return
match with the Field club on the morning
of the glorious Fourth. It is to be an
eighteen hole match, and whether the Field
club managers have selected the morning
of the Fourth In the hope and belief that
the opposing players will have celebrated
so vigorously the night before as to be
unablo to handle their sticks beg pardon,
clubs as effectively as heretofore, does not
appear on the surface. It is a fact that
the same players will not be pitted against
the Country club players as were so un
mercifully walloped by the latter a week
or two ago. Under a new order of things
the men selected to uphold the golf prowess
of the Field club this time will have . to
win their spurs to wear them, on the
Fourth of July occasion. In other words, a
team of twenty men is now enrolled at the
Field club, divided into four flights of five
men each, graded aeeordlngto the work
they do. It is the privilege' qf any man
In any of the subordinate classes to chal
lenge a man in the next class above, and
If he succeeds In putting him Into clear In
regular play on the course then Mr. High
class man steps down a peg and the chal
lenger moves up a notch.' By the same
token, any player of the club not a mem
ber of either of the four classes may chal
lenge the play of any man In the lowest
class, and thus, If he be able, work his
way to the society of the high five. In
this way It Is expected to determine who
are the best players In the organisation,
without any regard ,to race, color or
previous condition of servitude.
Bpeatflng of the Field club golf and Its
players: They now have something that la
worth striving for, If' ever a club had In
the magnificent silver oup that has been
presented them by Charles D. Beaton. It
is of the loving cup style, with three
ebony handles, heavily mounted, and stands
upon an ebony pedestal. The cup Itself
stands eighteen Inches high, Is gold lined,
and. altogether, a truly beautiful souvenir
that cost something more than $100, and Is
a trophy that any man might be proud to
possess. It Is engraven with the name of
the donor and is to be known as the Beaton
golf cup. In order to become the abso
lute property of any member of the club
It must be won for three seasons. It
Is to be played for at handicap medal
play the second Saturday of each month,
the first game of this series having taken
place yesterday afternoon. At the end of
the season the winners of the summer will
line up and play off to see who shall have
the oustody of the trophy for the first
year. Besides being valuable In Itself, the
cup cannot fall of creating an Interest and
rivalry that will unquestionably improve
the general play of the club.
The seven splendid courts of the St
Croix Tennis club are at last in perfect
condition and have so been for several days,
and already two or three of them are under
gamea all of the afternoon and evening
hours. The club bouse Itself has not as
yet materialized and, discouraged with the
difficulties encountered, the managers of
the organization will make no further effort
to get the bouse built for the present They
have come to this conclusion on the ground
that they would rather have the courts
without any house during the time that the
game can be played than have the tennis
spoiled for a major part of the season, as
It doubtless would be by the building, and
thus be without either house or courts.
Meantime, a large tent has been ereoted
that serves for a shelter and nearly every
other purpose that a really and truly house
could be utilised for and the game jroas
merrily on without Interruption. Already
a handicap tournament has been arranged
and begun, the first sets having been played
yesterday afternoon. The entries number
nearly thirty of the best known players of
the city, among them buing Young and
Chase, who figured so prominently In the
Field club tourney last week, and a number
of other equally good players, not members
of the Field club, who will give the young
sters mentioned a good run for their
money. One of these Is Ovltt, who has a
