' 'Wonder Many.
Uurprlse ' were the order of - t,ha day
Wednesday at the third day' play f the
Middle West -tennis- tournament at the
Omaha PleM club. Of course the greatest
surprise waa the defeat of Collins, the
great 'Chicago champion, by Sanderson of
Galesburg. Oilman also took an unexpected
victory from Holland and Blatherwlck beat
Pfrters. ' '
The putting out of .the twa Chicago crack
wss- entirely unlooked for. Both these
players were looked upon as being the moat
likely, jnen for -the, semi-finals, and, their
dofeat was a complete reversal of the dope
booh, Collins haa.the finest form In tennis
of anyone .who -ha , appeared on these
oosrt for raaoy year, but that alone will
Hot fount, as waa shown last year, when
Hayes beat Peters. Peters waa playing In
perfect form, but Hayes had more ability
to gt over the ground. Tha Chicago Doys
are usetf to grass courts, and on these the
cuts' are most jnncient, but they are of
little use on the fast clay courts of the
. Field, club. On the grass court the ball

, n the clay courts H keeps on Its wsy: Their
t-noie Js moat beautiful to watch and their
troxc are perfect, 'but When an athlete
with ability to cover "the ground, a Hayes
and Blatherwlck hare, com along, ' the
grass court men are at a disadvantage,
for In a long game they seem to wear out
and succumb before the more athletic fel
low. Another Instance of this waa when
Frank Eberhardt beat Hunt here several

Collins showed himself a thorough sports
man in,.hl mntchtwlltK Sanderson when he
refused to - take' a, decision of the umpire
which he 'dld not' think waa right.' and
served a double fault .Into the net to even'
up matters. , 4,4-..: s,. ',,-'
The two matches' In tJitt feirdftnals will- be

The victory of ..Sanderson over Collins
In, the fourth .round -Was toe surprise of the
week. . Collins had been generally 'picked'
as" the wlnnerof tha tournament and many
thought, 'after aeelrig tyrn ploy, that he'
would fc have little, difficulty In. defeating
Mayes, the present .bolder, .AH were sur
prised when- Sanderson Jumped out and
won the first three games of the first set.
Collins seemed to. lack, the life which
usually chaaaetarrses .his. play and could
do nothing, with Sanderson's high lobs.
Sanderson seemed to excel at this style
of -day 'and won' the first set, 8-4.
Collins braced In the 'second set and won
fast' ' Here "he played' all,, around Sander
son and passed him . continually, . keeping
the ball nearer the ground than had been
the caae iw (he first set. He "waa full of
ginger and. showed something of his real
form? ' Thar fast work of this ' set ' seemed
to tlrs Collins, .who. seem to be not .much
of' an athlete,. and the hot rays of the sun
wore him 'down-, so' 'the laat set was easy'
for Sanderapn and i.-tha . gallery wondered
If It, wss really aCraigrt Collins, who had

seemed to outdrive the Chicago lad. He

Is -helped. considerably by the ability to use

Important match of the afternoon, and the
remarkable thing about the match waa that
but one game of the whole match went to
deuce, and that was won by HUes. The
net work of Fletcher was superb, and HIloe
seemed unable to pass him at any ' stage
of the proceedings. Fletcher 'was nearer
to his- old championship form than at any

"The Middle West this "year is one of
the best managed tournaments 1 b.ave ever
attended," said Krelgh Collins, the hero-i
of many a tournament. "The - men -. In J
charge surely understand - their, business
and everything Is run oft. with-an eolat
which Is refreshing. We have tid wslts,
but everything ' Is run off according to
schedule. - The gracious . entertaliuncnt
which is .extended to the visitors cannot
help but make a man feel that Omaha is
a good place to visit, and, win or rose, I
will sutely come here again. Hospitality
is on of the, prerequisites of' business and
when you can make t-atranfeera fel.. at
home, as the visitors have been' made; to
feel at this tournament, it Is surely a
great-help to the city. 'The courts At the
Field club are as well situated as any I
ever saw, for the gallery and 'the people
of Omaha show thy - appreciate this by
turning , out whenever a'- good ' match Is
billed." After bis defeat Collins said that
what he had aald at 114 went, as "the beat
man had won." - - " '

Jack Hughes and Herb Kohn took a fall
out of Ced Potter and' -Robert pinning In
the doubles. Potter had been- to Okobojl
and had not played any sinew the city
tournament, so waa out of ' form. Th
local players are considerably - outclaaaed
by the players from abroad thia year, and
while this makes a better tournament, it
doea not give the gallery any .local men
to pull for.
Holland and Young had little difficulty In
inning from West and McConnell. They
did not have to exert themselves In this
match aud their stock' has gone up con
siderably1' In the double. The strong play
of the team was the ernes-court cutting of
Young. McConnell had difficulty in . re
turning some of the hard drives ;whlch
were tired st' him' by the' older men. al
though he was more accurate In hi re
turns than' West. ' " i - ,
COllfna and PeterV had a walkaway In
the match-with Perry &imJ. Potter, "winning
6-i, 6-1. Many have ptcked this team as
the' winner bf the doubles, although ther
are several other strong teams to be reck
oned with. 'Voth these players are finished
plakers and can oover th ground. Both
have good serves and watch for an opening
to place the bail. . .
Hayes and Blatherwlck had a-workout
with Atterbury and Sullivan,, but had little

8-6. 6-8, 6-8. '
The Behr-Larned contest waa In the second-
round of the all-comers tournament,
and the score was 6-4, 6-4, 7-5.
The result of the doubles was expected
by many, but Lamed' s defeat was unlooked
for. Behr waited -until the -first set was
well advanced before he bea-an running
his service. After that he played very fast.
The doubles match was a much harder
fought contest than that of last year, when
the same quartet met In the challenge

wanted to go home and Pa advised him to
wait and seo If they had killed the fatted
calf. If he hasn't heard yet he can get a
fatted calf or most any other old thing
from a whole lot -of fan here In Omaha if
he. will only go home.
If Omaha had had a pitcher In the first
five and two-thirds ' Innings yesterday It
would have won that ' game from Des
Moines hands down,, for It lambasted Mr.
Oillen from on end -of the field to the
other. The only reason In the world that
the Champion had a look-in on the score
was that Dodge couldn't see the plate. He
looked like a man working under a high
state of excitement throwing rings at a
circle of canes. .H. simply cut loose and
let the ball go, and- sometime It went over
the plate; other time It bored a batter In
the back or gave him his base. He did
bout everything - a pitcher could do h
struck out batters, hit them, waa hit by
them, gave them their baae on balls and
made one balk. The score was 18 to 9,
Omaha getting fifteen hlta to Des Moines' 9.
Six Rnna In First Inntnar.
Dodge didn't only go up In a balloon after
he got to the grounds; he went out there In
one and never got out. Schlpke, the first
man up, was given his base. O'Leary, the
second man up, was given his base. Then
the unexpected happened when Perrlng
failed to get a short grounder of Welday's.
Dexter at this trying moment banged out
a two bagger. Then Andreaa singled, Ho
grlever struck out, Magoon singled. Wolf
struck out and, evidently afraid things
might lag a little, podge gave out another
pass to Gillen. Then Schlpke, his second
time up In the Inning, singled, and O'Leary
went out from Rnnkle to Dr5n. Net re
sults: Four hits, three buses on Valla, sis
' This, was enough to send everybody home,
but through sympathy -most of the fans
stayed. It transpired that tho Rourke had
brought out their batting clothes, which
they always do when Oillen Is In the box.
Bassey get two strike and then sent the
ball kiting to center tight for a clean thre
bagger. Howard fanned and Perrlng went
out from short to first, scoring Bassey.
Autrey walked and Welch got a double, but
Dolan couldn't ante.
Omaha Adds Mora Rnns.
Des Moines was blanked for three sue
cesslv Inning, while Omaha kept adding
rnna to its list of one obtained In- th Aral
Inning. Runkle opened the second with a
single and Oondlng followed suit and Dodge
mind you, sacrificed.. Baasey was an easy
out, but Howard singled, giving the sld
two runs.1 In the third Welch, after two
are out, gets his .second two-bagger and
old Joe plants one against the center-loft
field fence for a' double,, scoring Welch,
Runkle popped up a foul to the catcher,
making two outs', but "Gondlng drove the
bail tb the fence, for thre base just the
same, sending Dolan across the plate; or
rather Corns, who-had run In from second
for Joe. This made it to, I and m tha
fourth Inning Omaha tied the cor on a
single by Perrlng and a double by Autrey.
The Champions added one in the fifth and
in the sixth Dodge 'reached his climax and
was relieved by-MeNeeley. Before going
Dodge hit BohlpkeWrW -Wetday and when
McNeeiey-iftepped fhto the box two men
were on baseV' Andreas cracked tha first
ball Mae, pitched for a single and by the
time th Inning ended three more run were
on the the list. Pes Moines got another
one in the seventh....- '
' That Errof, of Perrlna's.
Omaha's error column shows two against
RunMe. On was palpable, the other was
a hard chance. Howard's one bad error
marred, an otherwise brilliant game. Per
rlng' error, the first he has mad In a
long time, came . at, a moment when . it
meant the opening wedge for two run
If not more. Two men were on baae and
no run In when Welday dropped the ball
In front of George who was playing for a
bunt... It fooled Perrlng and bounced once,
going through . his legs. It afforded a
splendid chance for a double play, but
Instead six runs came in after the play.
But.lt is doubtful 1 even this would
have kept Mr.' Dodge from giving the
game away.' Perrlng played his regular
gilt-edged game after thatv getting two
put-outs and four assists, making some
of the greatest sort of throws.
Johnnie Gondlng. and Howard led at
the bat with three hits apiece and Autrey,
Welch and Pei ring. came along with two
each, Autrey' and Welch' being two
baggera. Every hit of Omaha' was clean
cut and hard, allien 1 one of the easle.U
pitcher in th league for the Rourke.
Autrey I not only making good at the
bat, but 1 fielding his position in great
shape and is wide awake at every turn
of th run. He looks like a great find. -
It wa Sander' day to pitch, but h
had a sore hand and Oh, mercy, what a
Lynch proved badly oft frequently on
ball and strikes, but neither team got th
worst of th decisions. Th same teams

Cases of Kelley nnd Lydlard Referred
to National t'ounalsslon.
MILWAUKEE. Aug. Sl-The caae of
Manager M. J. Kelley and Secretary L. A.
Lydlard of the Minneapolis btuie ball club,
who were cited to appear and show cause
why they should not be expelled for thtlr
alleged connection with the charges
against Umpire Clarence Owens, who was
accuaed of wagering money on the Mlnne-apolia-Columbus
aeries played In Minne
apolis several weeks ago and who was
Utbi aisiulttwd, came to an abrupt ending
this evening after the passage of a resolu
tion offered by Charles S. Havenor of Mil
waukee and seconded by T. J. Bryce of
Columbus, referring the whole matter to
the National Base Ball commission. This
action was taken in view of the fact that
earlier In the day the control of the Mln
neapolia club passed Into new hands, the
new owner being Gus Koch of this city.
Kelley and Lydlard, by disposing of their
stock, sever their connection as officers of
the club: this situation rendering it un
necessary for the board of directors of
the American association to take action in
The resolution includes a request that
the National Base Ball commission, at the
earliest possible opportunity, take such
action In reference to L. A. Lydlard and
M. J. Kelley as In Its Judgment seems best
