GREAT GATHERING OF EXPERTS CLF.TAIN
Entries Already In Assure Attend
ance of Rent Cracks and aa tn
asual Camber la Kipreted
for Ols C lassie Week.
Judging from the responses which have
been received to date by the tennis com
mittee of th Field club, the Middle West
ton n la tournament for 1V0 will be the bet
of the aerlea nt the Field club since the
! organisation of that claaatc. The commit
tea hu been holding meeting during the
Inst week to complete all arrangement for
the comfort of the vlaitora at the tourna
ment. The committee on prises, consisting
of Toung, Kohn, Caldwell and Wood, u e
committee on courts consisting of Young,
the entertainment committee consisting of
Martin. Collett. Hughes, Kohn and Cald
well and the press committee consisting of.
Wood. Young and Kofan have all organised
and arc ready for business.
More money will be expended for this
tournament than for any yet held and an
especial effort has been made to prepare
for ratn, so the tournament may be finished
up In week and not be compelled to drag
M has the Kansaa City tournament which
took nearly two weeks. To provide against
rain the committee has bought n tarpaulin
100 by-fifty feet which will completely cover
the tournament court and shut out the
rain. This will keep the courts dry so
play may be resumed In the morning or
Immediately after a rain. The tarpaulin
Is to be of eight ounce duck and then
water" proofed. The committee has also
bought a surface heater almllar to those
used by the street pavers. This will dry
off the courts after an ordinary shower.
These extra precautions should make It
possible to play off the tournament during
the week in spite of any ordinary rains.
Prises of Trmptln Value.
The prises are of the highest standard
and some are now on exhibition at the
Field club. The club will expend IfiOO In
real money and this Insure some prises
worth playing for. This sum Is sufficient
to get prises which wlfl exceed In value
any yet offered in the west. The prises
last season were of such high grade as to
elicit the warm encomiums of all the old
tournament players In attendance, who
said they were the best prises of the year.
These will be surpassed by those which
are offered this summer. Of course, the
value Of tha prises Is not the only Induce
ment to a tennis man to play In one of
these tournaments, but they go a long
ways toward making Mm decide whether It
la worth while to give up work for a week
in a effort to have a good time.
There now seems to be no doubt the
tournament will be the largest and bent
ever held In the west. Twenty-three en
tries have already been received from
oat-of-town players, and more are coming
In every day. The fact of these early en
tries Is taken as a good omen, for here
tofore the entries have been held back
until the last minute, but the reputation
of the Field club has gone abroad In the
'land and players are anxious to attend.
Entries., have already been received from
Chicago, Galesburg. Bt. Joseph snd Kan
sas City.. From 'Chicago will come Peters,
Gardner and By ford. By ford Is the player
who has twice this season defeated Hayes,
the present middle west champion, and
who defeated Waldrter In the single finals
at Kenwood; Vernon.' Sheldon and Wilder
have already sent their entries from Kan
sss City, and the Sioux City crowd will
send down a good Relegation.
One of Year's Bis Events.
The tournament will be held under the
auspices of the United Btstes National
. lawn Tennis association, and the rulea of
that association will govern the play. The
committee la especially anxious that the
representatives from the tennis clubs of
the state will be numerous. The Middle
West Is recognised sll over the county as
one of the big events of the year, and the
committee would especially like to work
up more of an Interest from the players of
the state In the tournament. Borne of
these player may think they are not of
the caliber that would have a chance to
, win In the tournament against the cracks
Of the country, still there will be minor
events In which they can compete and
their entertslnment will be Just as gnod
as that of the crack's. Here Is a chance
for players of the state to take a little
vacation and have the time of their Uvea
for no palna will be a pa red to make their
entertainment complete for the entire week.
Several towns from the stste hove sent
player up each year, but the committee
would like to hear from many more. The
Field club directors have laid aside a large
sum of money to see that all visitors have
a good time, and the accommodations at

Nebraska golfers are all ready for the
big tournament of the Nebraska Golf as
sociation which will he held this week,
beginning Thursday, at tne Omaha Countty
ciuh. This Is the second annual tournament
of the association, the first being held last
year at the Omaha Field club. The ofllcers
of the association are C. W. McConaughy,
president; H. T. Lemlst, vice president, and
frank J. lloel secrets ry and treasurer.
The other directors are E. H. Sprague,
C. F. Morey, W. 8. Cornutt and I. N. Ray
Entries should be sent to F. J. Hoel
Thirteenth and Leavenworth streets,
Omaha before Wednesday night as the
drawings will be made at that time. Post
entries, however, will be received at the
first tee. Towns already heard from are
Nebraska City, Lincoln, Holdrege and
Hastings. And of these probably will send
representatives, although the only loam
entry receives so far has been from Ne
braska City and the Field club and
Country club' of Omaha.
The association has hung up prises for
everybody. A prise Is offered for the low
medal score, the Nebraska lynateur
championship, the consolation prise, the
directors' prise, for the finals of the first
round of the Swatfest, for the finals of the
second round of the Swatfest, for play at
medal handicap, for the Nebraska Club

be given to the runners up In the several

Prettiest Course In Country.
When the players assemable for the
matches they will see one of the prettiest
golf courses In the whole country. There
may bo some to tie It for perfection of
finish but none to excell. The course is
pronounced by all who play It as a dulsy,
and no golf course In the United States Is
kept In better shape. The greens are per
fect and the distance on the whole course
Is fine. Several changes have been wrought
In the course, necessitating the preparing
of new acore cards. The circus ring on
No. 7 is the talk of the town. From the
top of Pike s Peak the drive Is 12S yards
to the circus ring. Bogey on this hole Is
three, and It Is attracting as much at
tention as the famous nine hole of the Glen
Echo club at St. Louis.

try club will be open to all who expect to
play In the tournament and several four

"All we want," he declared, "Is more
labor and less rain. The labor problem
has been partly solved by the employ
ment of Spanish workmen. We have also
advertised for Chinese laborers. Yellov
fever has not appeared in a long time
and for the nine days previous to my
departure no smallpox was prevalent."
Mr. Shonts said that the enginecr'ng
work on the canal was now well under
Mr. Shonts said the West Indian negro
labor had been very unsatisfactory, adding:
"We can only get a 60 per cent efficiency
out of the negro workmen.
"A man has already been sent to Spain
to secure Spanish labor. We want to get
from 8paln about 500 men a month to make
up the loss In the working force and to
bring the force up. We want the sturdy
laborers from tho north of Spain and we
expect to get them.

"Within a very few weeks advertisements

this class of labor and the present lot will
be In the nature of an experiment. But It
Is possible that a large force of Chlncsj

of preparing the contract will be slow,, for

all be complied with and the treaty regula

(inmprri Objects to Coolie l abor.
WASHINGTON. Aug. ll.-Samuel Gom
pers, president of the American Federation
of Labor, today Issued a statement con
cerning the action of the Isthmian Canal
commission In deciding to introduce Chinese
coolie labor to the work of constructing
the canal across the Isthmus of Panama.
The statement Is as follows:
It seems that those In charge of the
Panama canal construction have regard for
neither law nor principle. Tlrst, In the
most extraordinary manner, the eight-hour
law Is nnnulcd In the greatest public work
ever undertaken by the government under
the pretense that conditions uhere are
different than In tho -Cnitcd States. It
must appeal to the veriest tyro that if
eight hours work is regarded as sufficient
In the comparatively temperate zone of the
I'nlted States certainly ten, eleven and
even more hours of labor a day In the
festllentlal and miasmatic atmosphere of
he Panama sone are not only Improper
but outrageous and brutal.
The existing law excludes Chinese labor
ers and coolies from the I'nlted States or
sny of Its possessions. The Panama canal
zone la an American possession and It Is as
much a violation of the law to bring Chi
nese coolies there as It Is in other portions
of our country.
Some time ago In an Interview I had
with Chairman Shonts I protested against
the employment of Chinese coolies in the
Panama canal construction as had been
published in the newspapers It was the In
tention of Mr. Shonts to do. He there and
then emphatically stated that It was not
the Intention then to employ Chinese coolies
and they would not be employed under his
ShoulM HCiillrs to (iompers.
Mr. Shonts tonight gave out the follow
ing statement with regard to a statement
lsued In Washington today by PreelUt nt
Uompers of tilt American Federation of
The eight-hour law does not apply to un
skilled labor on the isthmus ot Panama.
llie entire pi t sent unskilled labor force is
alien. We cannot secure this class of un
sullied labor from the United States. lt is
therefore not aevn why a law passcu In the
interest of American labor at home should
be made applicable to alien laborers who
probably never heard of Its existence. Its
application would have Increased the labor
cost or the canal several minion dinars.
The American laborer In this country
would have to pay his share of the conse
quent increased taxation without any com
pensating benefit to himself.
At the time of mv Interview with Mr,
Gompers, In dlwusslng the eight-hour law,
aside from what 1 have already said, I
stated that my understanding of the rea
son for the enactment of the eight-hour law
In this country was primarily to give to tne
highest type of labor In the woria longer
hours for mental recreation ana improve
mwnt hut that with the lowest class of la
bor as at I'anama It was more helpful and
Improving, more In their Interests and more
an act of kindness thnn otherwise, to per
mit them to work ten hours a day and Jay
them for it because they are paid by the
As to the statement of Mr. Gompers that
the existing law excludes Chinese laborers
and coolies from the United Slates or any
of its possessions. The Panama canal
sone Is an Amercian poasesslon und it Is as
much a violation of the law to bring
Chinese .coolies there as in other portions
of our country. I can only say tne com
mission has secured the opinion of the
highest 1 Kill authorities of the govern,
merit. It has been held that such law does
not apply to the canal zone. The law ex
cluding Chinese from the United States and
Its possessions was passed in March, 1H03,
and specifically set forth that such laws
should only be applicable to territory at
that time, subject to tho authorities of the
United States. The canal zone was ac
quired subsequent to that date and con
gress has not extended its provision so as
to embrace the canal zone.
The canal must be dug and the first re
quisite Is to have labor to dig It. We do
not believe It wist or economical to depend
only on the West Indian negroes. We can
not secure the unskilled lalxir In sufficient
volume from the United States. It is not
therefore not in competition to our own
labor and any agreement entered Into will
provide for the return of Chinese direct to
China upon the completion of service on
the canal work.
In conversation with Mr. Gompers, the
well known views of Mr. Shonts as to
labor on tho isthmus, both with respect to
the possibility of the futuro employment of
Chinese and otherwise, were practically
set forth ss above and any contrary un
derstanding must have been due to a mis
apprehension of his position.

tions In the yeung and middle-aged, sapping the vital forces, undermining the
foundations of manhood, clouding the brightest minds and destroying all
noble thoughts and aspirations.
There are thousands of partially and totally wrecked constitutions among
young men of today from abuses and Indiscretions In early life. Their weak
ened vitality, shattered nerves and exhausted energies tell a pitiable story.
Multitudes hsve brought upon themselves the horrors of disease or weakness
through excesses, abuses snd unnatural drains, which ssp the very foundation
of life, destroying their health and strength, leaving them a mental, physical
and sexual wreck.

be cured? We hsve devoted ms.ny years exclusively to treating tills class of
troubles, attended with great suocess, and we sre thus enabled to give such
sufferers the benefit of our extended experience In treating diseases of this
nature. The specialists of the State Medical Institute are eminently quatlflsil
to advise, direct and treat such esses. W are thoroughly conversant wlrh
every minute detail connected with such cases, and encourge and counsel the

The republicans were condemned "for their

their attempt to defeat n railroad commis
