Let's reason this thing a little.
The magnates of the 'Western learns
have decided that Norris O'Nell la a good
enough president for the league. , They
profess to believe that If he will attend
business a little closer, that the affairs
of the league will be administered suc
cessfully, and that each team will get all
that Is coming to It. This being the de
cision of the managers. It must satisfy the
public, for the magnates own the league.
All the public can ask Is that the ball
games be played fairly, without rowdyism.
and that competent umpires be secured,
Poor umpiring Is the bane of ball play

whose decisions make or mar a game. As
to the private business of the league, the
public la not concerned with that.
In regard to the attitude of W. A.

cepted the decision of his business part.
ners and has .said not a word concerning
the outcome of the meeting, or, rather,
conference In Omaha last Saturday. The
papers throughout the circuit, except In
Omaha, have all had expressions from the
ether magnates, some of them favorable,
some unfavorable, to Mr. Rourke, but he
has kept his own counsel, and will wait.
The other members of the league are

they are content, he must acquiesce.

it least his expenses for going to Denver
and Colorado Springs. When Burns laid
down at Colorado Springs last season.
Rourke and Mike Cantlllon made the ar
rangements for the tram at Pueblo. All
these things sre known to the men in
onnneotlon with base bait.
In the recent trouble Mr. Rourke did not
say he would break up the Western league;
he did say that he would close his gates
and disband his team before he would per
mit on his grounds another such exhibition
aa was furnished by Cantlllon and Doyle,
aver which the trouble started, and he did
say he would withdraw from the league
unless some relief from the conditions com
plained of was furnished. The Omaha fran
chise In the Western league Is worth all of
$15,000, and Rourke Is not foolish enough
to throw this away Just to gratify a bit of
pique or personal spite. He Is a bsse ball
man solely, and knows that he must be In
a well orgsnlzed, properly governed league
to. prosper. It Is unfair to him to hold him
responsible for statements made by news
paper correspondents. Since the meeting of
the magnates here last Saturday he has
positively refused to say a word for publi
cation, and all statements sent out as
coming from him are manufactured. He Is
satisfied to abide by the will of the ma
jority of the Western league owners, who
are his business partners and associates.
What he wants Is good play and proper
conduct on the field.
Rack of all this Is the all-pervading hand
of the American league. Rourke Is get-
lng to be too big a figure In the base ball
world to satisfy some of the men who are
directing the destinies of the game. If he
were Identified with the Comtskey crowd,
things would be all right. But he Isn't.
He Is allied with the National league, and
has been at all times. He was close to
James A. Hart, and Is now close to Chsrlns
W. Murphy In Chicago. His communica
tions with the American league magnates
have always been friendly, but never con
fidential. The American association Is di
vided Into two camps, and Rourke Is In
sympathy with one of them. This happens
to be Bryce-Watklns-Grlllo. Over against
this trio stands Tebeau-Lennon-Havenor.
Comtskey Is interested with the Cantlllons,
and this brings the connection Just a little
more plainly Into view. Teblau cannot
afford to let Rourke get the upper hand In
Wetsern league affairs, for this will weaken
the control of the league by outsiders.
Tebeau and Cantlllon, and through these
Comlskey, now dominate the Western.
Rourke Is a minority member. They do
not want him In base ball, but he owns
the franchise In tha best town in the West,
era, and one of the best towns In tha
country. If they oan drive htm out of base
ball, a franchise worth anywhere up to
$15,000 will fall Into their hands. The rest

The yachtmen at Lake Manawa have
been a little slow this spring In getting
started with their racing and warming-up
events, because of tha changes In the boat
noose, which have required considerable
time and attention from the members.
Rivalry, as of yore, exists aa to who are
tha best sailors, and this will have to ba
threshed out before the races come off.
The changes at the club house have made
a great hit with the members, who now
have vastly better accommodations and
more room of all kinds. Several new cot
tages have been built at the lake this
spring. One of these belonging to Gould
Diets, was a little beauty until the cyclone
carried it away. Mr. Diets had bou.ht
ins Dimgaiow at tne lumbermen s con
vention In Omaha last fall and had It re
built at Manawa and a couple ot carloads
of lumber added. The wind struck It and
all that remained was a klndllnc oile.
Mr. Diets was not to be dismayed, so he
has built larger and better than before
and now has a splendid plaoe for the en
tertatnment of his friends when he spins
from Omaha In hla apeady auto. 'Fishing
at Manawa haa also been good. Just as at
Cut-off, and many splendid strings of
crapples have been caught.

horses could ba had and the Interest is
here, the track Is available and all that
Is lacking Is some one to promote the
deal. Successful meets have bean nulled
off In this city and more can be If they
are promoted In the right way. The trot-
ting horse men hsva about given up the
Idea of doing anything In that line be
cause tha ownera refuse to give a lease
for more than one year, and they aay It
would not pay to fix up the grand atand
and barns for one sesson.
The tennla men of the oity have been
quite active during the last week, and a
team haa been chosen to go to Sioux City
for an Intercity match between the teams
of Omaha and that town. All of tho
courts have been put to the best of use
during the last week, .especially at the
Field club, where more players are using
the game of tennis as a recreation and
exercise tnan ever net ore. The seven
courts are kept in perfect condition, which
makes It a pleasure for the experts to
work at the game.' The date of the city
championship haa not been set, although
It will come before the Middle West, which
will be two weeks earlier than last year.
The committee is already in receipt of
letters from players of note saying they
will be present.
Golfers at the Field and Country clubs
are all keyed up over the approach of the

The anglers were out in force last week.
From early morn until after the curfew
rang those Who "love to steal a while
away" hied themselves to the banks of
Cut Off lake and fished and fished. Al
though the old world has new Inventions,
new theories advanced every day, new
ideaa In this, that and the other thing,
fishing Is Just about the same today as
It was In tha so-called "good old days"
before the rate bill went to the senate
and before voting machines were intro
duced. Fishing Just means fishing. Man's
Ingenluty hss not devised anything which
will successfully take the place of getting
spade and going out and digging bait-
that Is, nothing "quite so good." Then
to Just amble along to the lake with a
sack of "smokln', " and sit down and Just
fish and fish and fish! The song says that
"fishing depends on the kind of bait," and
that la true In most Instances. The fisher
men of Omaha have king desired some of
the comforts which go along with fishing,
and to that end have Joined the Omaha
Rod and Gun club, which will soon be
ensconsed In Its new club house. Memorial
day saw the old lake lined with anglers
trying for the finny beauties with which
the lake Is well stocked. Since the con
viction of some of the poachers the seiners
seem to have stopped operations at tne
lake, and Omaha, by the aid of the fish
commissioner, will soon have as good fish
ing as any community.
Tha Nash party, consisting of F. A.
Nash, W. W. and E. M. Morsman, Caspor
E Tost, C W. Lyman and Sandy Grls-
wold, returned Wednesday from a ten
days' wrestle with the musklcs of north
ern Wisconsin. Mr. Nash made the big
gest catch of the trip, but he failed to
land the beauty, which must have weighed
over thirty pounds. He broke the rod
and smashed the boat and got awajf.
Numerous muscallonge, black bass and
wall-eyed pike were hooked and a general
good time was had by all the party.
Another party consisting of Ed. Palmer,
Fred Schamel, Charles Dyball and Mr.
Barlght returned from a short outing at
Lake Washington. Luck was with this
bunch aa far as fish were concerned, but
not with Barlght, who mode two enor
mous holes In tbe lake by falling In
twice. Local fishermen are pleased with
the announcement made by General Man
ager Smith of the Omaha & Council Bluffs
Street Railway company that hereafter,
during the summer months, the cars will
be run every half hour to Courtland beach.

Locust streets on tha half hour and re

adequate by the fleshermen, aa it is a
simple matter to time the going and
coming to the half hour. Tha work of
remodeling the club house Is complete

at the meeting of the American Intercol

not the aim, such statement may be taken
with a grain of salt, for If one reads
between the lines It Is easy to see that
such will probably be the case. Not only
is this quite sure to prove true, but Walter
Camp probably will also be as much In
predominance of the grldron situation a

ference lies in the fact that out of all th
subdivisions of the country New Englajid

Jcpted It unanimously In -the form of

the submitting of lists of officials by the

Managers or representatives were present

Union, New Tork university, Rutgers and
West Point, the principal Institutions of
New Tork and New Jersey. The College
of the City cf New Tork promised to

following recommendations were adopted:
That a list of officials be adopted by the

Bill Bradley of the Cleveland Nationals,
one of the greatest third basemen In the
world, says that the third sack proposi
tion is one of the hardest In the business
and that only heady players may aspire
to the distinction of being able to hold
down the Job with good results. Here Is
what the great Bradley has to say on the
It Is no soft snaD to rjlav third base.
There Is no doubt that it is one of tha
most Important positions on the diamond,
but when a man becomes acquainted with
it the proposition Is different. I contend
that In playlns" third a man must keen a.
close tab on the hitters as do the catchers.
It is necessary to know Just what batsmen
can bunt and be able to anticipate by a
bitter's movements whether he is aolne- to
mi nara or lane a cnance at beating out
a uunu xnira Dasemen nave been fooled
time and again. A hitter will make an at
tempt tp bunt and when the thlrd-saoker
has been drawn in will bolt away for dear
life down the left foul line. It's eight
chances out of ten that the -third baseman
is out of position to stop the ball. Any
way, the speed with which It has been hit
renders It sood for a s Initio or two base..
Half of the success of a capable third
baseman lies In the study ot Miters. I
can't tell how to field, for natural ability
covers this only. A player must have a
stroDg arm and be fast on his feet. Time
and again a third baseman is forced to
neia a Dunt with his throwing arm and
shoot it to first at the same time in order
to get It there ahead of the runner. It
la also a good point to watch the base run
ners closely. Block the runner at your bag
whenever there is an opportunity, for if
you lose the play at your sack the runner
is generally sure to score later, it is easier
to get home from third than from second.
Tou must keep your brains working all the
umg wnen you piay iniro.
Test of American Nerve
A couple of our American tourists were
making a hurried tour through India, and
darkness had overtaken them in the forest
before they could get home. They ' both
knew of a little hut not far away in which
they could get shelter.
On retiring, the younger of the two met
drew the blanket not over his whole body,
but across his lower limbs. He was awak

blanket on the lower part of his legs felt
strangely heavy. He noticed a peculiar
smell, like the odor of raw potatoes, which
the cobra gives out. It was a cobra, sure

Dne glance was enough; it was a partlc

this reptile la the death warrant of the
