. MS" I THE OMAHA DAILY DEE: SUNDAY, PETTEMHEH 18, 1901. V.i II ? , i ' I I V I 1 r SP0HTH.B GOSSIP OF THE WEK They all look alike. Omaha has certainly created havoc among the western teams during the lsst two weeks, and It looks at If the Rourke famllr Intended to go through the rest of the sea aon In lt preent rampageous form. At anr rate, the eight successive victories off Denver and Colorado Springs were the re milt of the fastest aort of ball playing and the general condition of every man on the team suggests that It Is not too much to expect that eight of the ten gajnes that till remain to be played will be Omaha victories. One of theee games will be piayed with Colorado Spring on Tuesday, closing the season" schedule with the Millionaires. This Is a very Important game for Omaha, for with It the season's series will be a standoff, while If It goes the other way. It will put Omaha two to the, bad with the Springs, and make the only aeries lost by the Rourke. Thus It will be seen that Papa Bill and his bunch will go after It with all their might. Tommy Burns was In town during the week and expressed himself as extremely anxious that his team get this game for the same reason that Omaha wants It The rest Of the games will be played with Bt. Joseph, and If he Saints are no harder for Omaha than they were for Denver and the Bprlngs, they should afford the team merely a stroll. ut It must also be remembered tnat Bt. Joseph has played Omaha to a standstill so far during the season, and there s no telling what Webster and his bunch will do this time. It's a cinch, though", that they'll have to play ball to keep the gait with Omaha. It Is now up to Dca Moines to make good. Both Df-nver and the Bprlngs have to play the Hawkeyes on their own grounds, and If Billy HofTer can even go half way with the Coloradoans. the rag Is Omaha's. Hof fer's bunch is In good shape, and has been playing a very steady and consistent game for the last three weeks, and this gives much promise that the mountaineers will havs trouble at the Iowa capital. Sioux City Isn't out of It, either. The Sioux will welcome the strangers on their own hunt ing grounds, and It will be funny if they don't get a scalp apiece from them, and maybe more. Flemming has had his pres ent team in action longer ihan any that v.. iha Rinux niv uniform this sea son, and as the players are getting a little ' used to each other. It Isn't at all unreason- , able to expect them to win some games. Jarrott and Dindamann are both good pitchers, anp Kostal and Cadwallader rank as fair, while the fielding and batting of the team Is good. It has been In team work that Sioux City has been deficient, and this is developed, but not to a degree that makes the aggregation actually strong. the first gun In the bombardment that would follow. The very excellent punch Then landed on the fresh yonng roan's face probably didn't knock any sense Into his empty noddle, but it did relieve the feel ings of a mighty honest and conscientious ball player, who was eminently correct In resenting the insult offered him. Wonder If that cub has noticed any sign of throwing games since Thell has Joined OmahaT We haven't. Just to prove that those eight victories were not mistakes, the following statistics are offered: BATTING AVERAGES. Last AB. R. H. Av. W'k.

It looks even better for Omaha, The team won eight out or nine games aved during the week, which Is consid erably above the 80 per cent figured on. and If the gait Is continued the pennant is aue for the flagpole at Vinton park. And this prospect Isn't nt all pleasing in Denver, where they had it all figured out that the Grizzlies were a cinch when they left home the last time. Omaha wasn't on the map then. Shepherd of the Times takes It most to heart, and resorts to his customary ex pedient of roasting the team and everyone connected with the league. He can't con ceive of Denver losing on Its merits; It must be bum ball, or the Grizzlies would be first every time. He Is now appealing to George Tebeau to send all his good players from Louisville and Kansas City to help Hallman through to a successful close. About the only thing that would make Shep really happy would be to have "Muggsy" Me Graw's Giants and Jimmy Collins' World Champions located In Denver, and let them play alternate days, with a ground rule that If the visiting team should happen to win a game. It would count double for Den ver In the standing table. He's a little bit tho hardest loser known to the game. And while we have up this matter of senseless knocking of the home team, it must make the Des Moines fans feel good to watch the splendid work that is now being done for Omaha by Otto Thell, and reflect that If It hadn't been for a half fledged orltio on one of the Des Moines pa- . pers Thell might still be in the Hoffer band. Omaha certainly owes a debt of gratitude, at least, to the brilliant youngster who. In his chagrin over losing a game to Omaha, accused Thell of throwing it, and then met him on the street and told hi in the shot he had already had In the paper was only Dates for the post-season trip through the country are being made by the Omaha team, and a number of Nebraska towns are assured of seeing the' fastest aggrega tion that has worn an Omaha uniform for many years. Other applications are coming in. and it is not Improbable that the boys will have at least two weeks of steady work In the country after the lost game is played here this season. Manager Rourke is tak ing care of the matter for them, and clubs wishing games should write to him. During his stay in Omaha Tom Burns an' mad verted to soma degree on the w lather that has been experienced by the Western league during the season. Out of the seventy-two days his team was sched uled to play at home only two were clear. Quite a record for "sunny" Colorado. The spurt of the Omaha team has started several tilings locally, and among them a youthful poetess, who breaks forth Into gladsome melody after this fashion: OMAHA TO THE TOP. Omaha Is climbing to the top I tell you that. Who can doubt It as they see the boys come up to bat. Howard still a-playlng second Just the way we've always reckoned. For Howard surely is a peach. On first we see Jack Thomas with the mlt. The fans all seem to think that Jack Is "It." He is fast upon his feet, And his smile is always sweet. When he gets the ball and puts the runner out At third we see young Schlpke strong and bold. And Dolan playing short as In the days of old. Playing ball that's good to see Fast and cltan aa it should be, For Joseph can play ball with the best. Jos I tell you is the pilot, the pilot of the crew, He It Is who always knows just the right thing to do When the boys get In a tangle And begin to chew and wrangle It's Joe who brings them through without a scratch. In left a small-sized chap by name of Otto Thlel, He gives you the Impression that he was born to steal. He Is swift upon his legs Though they only look like pegs, Tet Buck Is proud of them and to the team Is leel. , In center Arid looms up Harry's tall glgan- tlo frame Though he seems so far away he Is always In the game. And with Carter out In right We have them all cinched tight So opponents can go way back and be tame. The handsome face of Oondlng we see be neath the mask And Freese always ready to relieve him of the task For better lads than these One very seldom sees, Nor would the crowd two better catchers ask.

The summer has gone, and looking back over the past It Is observed that It has been one of which Omaha sport' Ing men can well ee content. There have been Improvements In every line. Better tennis, better golf, better horse racing and. best of all, more interest has been taken In the various sports by the public. It Is about the time of the year when the plans for this season are being closed and new plans being made for next spring, and from present outlooks the following year will be more of a success than the one that is passing away. The first plan In the sporting line to be made for next spring was the Idea of hav ing a cricket club in the city. Borne years ago Omaha had one, and It was no slouch of a club, either. The idea of reforming the club was started by the challenge sent out by Sioux City cricketers last week. When the committee In charge got to pick ing an eleven It was surprised to find the number of new cricketers that have settled In Omaha since the old club broke up, and this led to the Idea of having another club here. When a Darty of Englishmen settle In a strange land, they first put up a cricket pitch, next a mission house, and then a field battery arrives, and tho land Is a part of the British empire. But first the cricket pitch, without it the field battery and the mission house could not survive. Being so, it was with great de light that Britishers here and in the state hall the formation of a club In the city, and as the Kroner men are behind tho scheme, there Is every chance of It being a success. cricket never will be popular with an American crowd, on account of the length of time necessary in finishing a game. For that reason foot ball draws a larger crowd In England than does a cricket match. Fifty Englishmen will go to a county cricket match where 60Q will go to a local foot ball match. The Amer icanized Britisher will watch a base ball match In preference to a cricket match, but ho would play cricket rather than any other game. Apart from the sport Itself there are old associations connected with the wickets to a cricketer In a land where cricket Is not. Old times, old memories of me days when, a chubbr-faced fa h strode to the "crease" in class matches and under the guldlns- of a prefect learned that to funk a "yorker" was a tning dishonorable and a deplorable lack of school etiquette, and then later, when he had risen tO the much-envlaft ft? a "sixth form boy" and bad another cnuoDy-racea youngster as his own par. iicuiar rag, he made that hit for six which won the match for the Old School, and then perhaps later still, when he won his place In the College eleven and was a greater hero than the best come flocking back to him, and these ",UUB" oi earner days are In a great measure the cause of the intense fascina tion cricket has for Englishmen. It Is but natural that It should be so. He would certainly be a Door American u not stand up for the glory of the diamond. morning tne cricketers will meet at tho Field club for a practice game, pre paratory to their game with BIoux City It Is expected that Omaha will play Sioux v..., umt, aoout September 26, but the exact date has not v k upon. Games will be played on matting. One more exhibition nt . i " . . u ,auilg uuu trotting and the Omaha Driving club will closo Its season at the Sprague street driv ing park. But this matinee Is certainly going to be a buzzer. Besides the ordinary pac ing and trotting events there will be a nsmber of running races and some humor ous events, including a slow mule race. It has been conclusively shown this year that though the grandstand is willing to watch trotting and Darlnr a .v O " " iCMiy enthusiastic over a running pace. T see me riders round the corner for the home stretch In a bunch is a sight that makes the man without a drop of sporting blood In his veins rise from his seat and holler. This scenic effect, this dash and vim, this high pitched excitement Is seldom to be found In a trotting race and as the crowd Is continually looking for something spec tacular rather than aclentlfln th. tacular will' have to be" provided before the crowd comes. This was shown In the pony races held a short time ago at the Sprague street driving tracks and in the horse breaking exhibitions at the same place. In the first event, the animals were com mon ponies, the riders were dressed any old way and riding any old way: yet the gal lery which during the previous trotting and pacing events had shown Its pleasure by a few desultory hand claps now turned into a yelling, shouting and highly ex cited maSS Of DeODle. In the hnraa hronb- Ing exhibitions, though an admission was cnargeo, me crowd was twice as large as any that attend the .regular Saturday afternoon matinees. If cow pony races get the people "holler ing," what will a properly conducted running race with good horses do? Of course this Is not to say that running races should altogether take the place of pacing and trotting events, but the mati nees would certainly be patronized by a large number of people who declare they oould not spare the time to watch nothing but pacing; and trotting events. Nearly every city of any size In the state has Its annual meets In which running races form the greater part of the program and why should not OmahaT It has the horses, It has the men end It will get the crowd If those In management will put up a show that pleases the people.

Of these the Union Stock Tardst team Is reputed to be the best and some are Inclined to believe that It will make a mighty good showing for the trophy at the end of the season. The trophy Is a silver tenpln donated by the Brunswick. Balke-Collender company and will go to the team winning the largest number of games In the season. The Waverlys car ried off the prize last year by a score of ,5S7. Many changes have been made In the teams this year and no one team seems to be better than any other. A close and exciting season Is looked for. News comes from Paris of an offer of $10,000 by M. Charley to the first owner of an auto launch to cross the Atlantic. One entry has already been received and plans are being made for two more launches. The race will be known as the Interna tional Transatlantic cup and the offer will be good for two years. American manu facturers are of the opinion that the feat cannot be done, and S. B. Bowman, one of them, is said to have offered S16.0U0 to M. Charley If It is accomplished.

Tramps Stay Away from Mountain. "You never saw a cat bathing In the sea. You never saw a" tramp In. a mountainous country. Fach spectacle Is of equal rarity." The spenker, a geologist, smiled. "I know what I am talking about," he said. "In quest of geological truths I have traveled the country over many times, and I have yet to find a tramp among the mountains. Tramps avoid mountains as they avoid soap. "Hence New Hampshire, Vermont and the other mountainous states are singu larly free from petty thieving and from all such troubles as hoboes cause. And hence, In those states. It is never necessary to lock the doors or the windows. "Tramps avoid mountainous districts be cause the walking Is all uphill there and because the farms are few and far be tween.
