Seea la Omaha la
. lireigh Collins has had a reversal of
fortrifnom Wednesday and again forged to
t he front by Inning tha special match
from Hayes, tha present holder of tha title
f the Mlddla WmI champion.
The Snatches 'Thursday afternoon were
both' hard fought and full of good tennis.
For this afternoon arrangements have
been hiad to have the finale In both singles
and doubles played, the doubles to start at
8:30 between Peters and Collins and Blath
erwlck and Hay, and the singles at 4
o'clock between Sanderson and Oilman.
Over a- doses autoaioblles were used last
night to take the jrlsltors for a ride around
the city and to tha country. Tonight a
banquet has been arranged.
The Collins-Hayes special match at the
tournament was about the fastest tennis
ever' seen In Omaha and Collins had sn
opportunity to redeem himself for hla de
feat of tha lr before by Banderson, In
tha fourth rtmhfl df tn- Middle West cham
pionship. Collins was considerably put out
by hla. defeat Wednesday and N. B. Updike
conceived tha Idea of offering a cup to give
Collins a chance at the present holder of
the championship. '
An Immense gallery was present for the
afternoon matches and It waa well re
garded, for Its time and attention. Fletcher
defaulted to Sanderson In the semi-finals
of tha championship" race and that left
but Oilman and Blatherwlck to fight It out
for the honor of playing In the finals Fri
day. .J"he addition of the special proved
iff w lit uiantiiK wtf.ro iff hue .aj unu
such playing was a revolatlon to many.
' " Colllna la Determines.
. Colllna hod made up his mind that If he
ever won a tennis match in his life he
would win that match With Hayes, and he
did. Although Hayes Is tha champion of
this section , and Collins comes from Chi
cago. the1 gallery seemed to be with the
Chicago man. . The match consumed a long
time In playing, for each point was con
tested as If -the whole -match depended on
that point- Each player had played hard
matches in tha morning and the odds
seemed to be In favor of Hayes on ac
count of tils' known 'ability to recuperate
and because Collins had weakened under
the Hot 'stiK the day" before tn his match
.with Bahdersoh. " ' ,! ' "
.The gfuse had mors spectacular features
than any played so far. In the four sets
Collins made Ave points more than Ms op
ponent,1 winning 110 to 108. ' The back hand
work of Collins was tha real feature of the
game. He got seemingly Impossible shots
over the net. He had plenty of opportunity
to utie this back hand stroke, aa Hayes put
them on his -left aide ' repeatedly Collins
would also use his little cut stroke over the
net, by which he would force Hayes to run
up, ana wouia men put ine Dan over nis
head. During the entire , four sets there
were not over a dosen lobs, both players
volleying most of the" time. Collins has a
back hand volley Law ford which Is' a shot
peculiarly, hla own. , The ball was back
ward and forward all the time, with speed
on Its every move. Hayes Is a wonder to
run along, tlie back line and covers ground
In a remarkable fashion. How such a
Targe mah can" cover the territory he does
was thewendws of IV-ji.u r . .
'. Peters Coaches OnlltnsV '
In the, fourth set, with , the, score. 4-8,
Hayes leading, Collins; had something put
In his' ear by his ' partner, ' Peters, and he
went after Hayes In a. fashion which made
the women on the porches and In the ham-
mocks sit VP and take notice. 'He apeeded
up his gamt and' Hayes took a point with
the greatestcduncaltyis Neither player took
any -chances on going to the net unless a
most excellent opportunity" presented Itself
to place the .ball. ; All the play waa from
the back' lineal, with each player striving to
put the ball out of the. reach of the other.
Collins has a great faculty of putting the
ball where the other, man Is'nt, and he
seems to Judge this, by watching his op
ponent's -foot movement. If Hayes would
tart,, to the right after the ball, Collins,
"by a .quick, switch,' would put the ball on
the other side,' and by thla won many

For persistency and bull dog fighting the
game between' Oilman, and Blatherwlck in
the semi-finals took the plum. The game
went so tar that the fifth set waa Virtually
a test, of endurance with Oilman holding
out the beat. j A week ago Saturday he
beat the ambidextrous doctor in Just the
same way at Dee Moines. Oilman's reverse
cuts seemed to bother the dootor and were
hard to put back over the net. The fight
waa eloee, and hard all the way through
but Oilman- showed 'he waa the best fighter
and hed'the most, endurance. He played
tut tha string to the last ditch. Blather-

M'NEELEY HOLDS OFF FOR TEN INNINGS
Laeala Plar Erratic " Ball aad
Are t'aable to Do Aartblasj
with Pltehlaa; of Mr.
There are some things that should never
be told. But
Rourke's ossified orphans made another
show of themselves out at Vinton street
park aural net Dea Moines, the performance
lasting ten Innings because Des Moines
could not bat McNeeley effectively so long
as he was given anything like support.
But In the tenth when Bender and
Bassey made two errors the Cham
pions, with the aid of three hits and
a base on balls, piled up three runs, win
ning 4 to 1. Bender had a chance for
a r.eat double by which he might have re
tired the vide without a run, but instead
of stepping on second with the ball In his
hand, he tried to throw It to Howard,
about two feet away, and that caused the
mess. Basaey's error was holding a ball
and watching a man score when he should
have thrown him out.
A u trey marred a brilliant game by a wild
and needless throw to Runkle. But It waa
pardonable aa he waa trying to make a
double play. Ha made one beautiful throw
from right to first after catching a fly on
a desperate run and finished a double.
If Errors Shoald Be Rons.
Seven errors! If Omaha could only se
cure a special dispensation during this
Des Moines series so that It could count
Its errors sgainst the Champions' runs
the home team might have some show of
getting a game, but It looks bad other
wise, especially aa long as Umpire Lynch
continues unable to distinguish a ball from
a strike and vice versa. Brother Lynch
also made a couple of base decisions yes
terday which were disastrous to Omaha.
McNeeley started things off In the first
Innlrg rather mixed. On the first six balls
pitched he struck out the first two men
and then ho passed two, but, though a hit
was made In addition, no run was scored.
. Omaha could do nothing with Clcotte.
Repeatedly It lost fine chances of scoring
by being unable to hit. It's only look-In
waa In the sixth Inning. Bassey led off
with a corking three bagger, Howard went
out and Perrlng nailed the ball In center
for another three bagger, scoring Bassey.
Perrlng attempted to score on a grounder
by Autrey, but was called out at the plate
on .a close decision.
Thla Is to be ladles' day and the same

Beaver City Badly Beaten.
ARAPAHOE. . Neb, Aug. 23. (Special
Telegram.) The Beaver City White Caps
met a crushing defeat at the hands of the
local braves and -after the fourth Inning,
when Arapahoe made nine runs, none of
them earned, both teams became careless
and the game Unties. Besver City had
the Bert rand battery. Masters brothers,
who were batted dut mercilessly, being re
placed by their regulars, who fared but
little better. After the game was won
Bellamy took Tauncr's place in the box
and did equally aa well. None of the
pitchers were well supported. The batting
of Schoonover and Beltser were the fea
tures. The locals, mixed with some bril
liant work several dumb plays, but not In
the same class as that handed by Beaver
City, who played like a veritable bunch of
"mlssflts." The score: R.H.E.

Iowa I.rfcaVae Results.
MARSH ALLTOWN, la., Aug. 23. (Spe
cial Telegram.) Following are the results
in the Iowa league:
Fort Dodge. 3; Waterloo, 1.
Clinton. 6; Maxshalltown, 1
Keokuk. 6; Ottumwa, 3.
Burlington, 6; Oskaloosa, i.
From a distance It looks as If the Minne
apolis aquubble had been settled.
This world's base bsll championship Is
likely to become a paradox a local affair,
The greatest tribute to the managerial
ability uf Frank Chance la the fact that he
let Dodge go after a brief try-out.
Not even Chesbro, nor the mighty name
of Clarkson, was enough to overawe the
White Sox in tne first game Wednesday.
Just think of that old Pop Eyler holding
Pueblo down to two hits! Pop is develop
ing into big league timber in these latter
Bla- Larry has got his Cleveland sluggers
In tnird place, but he can thank Chicago
for It more than himself and his team
The White Sox took a double header
from the Highlanders as easily as If they
might have been a ball team from Boston
Won't It be nice and novel for the two
big league pennants and pushover trophies
to be won by the same cities, respectively,
Chlcsgo and Boston?
In spite of those who refuse to enthuse
over tne gait at which Commie la sending
his men he waa forty-one points ahead of
the Phillies Thursday morning.
Hostetter was put In to play third for
ths Cardinals and won the game by his
timely hlitlng. He made two of the five
bits registered against young Cy Young.
That man Owen la getting to be some
thing awful. He not only wins his games,
but Insists on making hits. He got a pair
Wednesday and tha last time he worked
got a two-bagger.
Who la thla Ous Kooh of Milwaukee, who
is said to havs secured ownership of the
Minneapolis franchise? Is be merely a man

Some Straight Tips from Silk.
"I have often been asked why I tax my
voice so much," says Silk O'Loughlln. "I
want everybody on the field to hear me. I
think the patrons of the game like to hear
an umpire. I think, too, that It enlivens
the game to have the decisions given In a
sharp, brisk way. My voice went back on
me in Philadelphia one day, and as a re
sult the game lagged and waa dull and
people left the ground before the game wns
over. The faster the man In the game the
more alert must be the umpire to make his
Silk has the proper Idea. It Is a tact that
the great majority of fans who witness
the modern game of base ball are deprived
of one-hnlf the enjoyment of the contest
by Inability to hear the umpire's voice or
distinguish his decisions. Besides posses
sing a strong voice and not being afraid
to use It, Ban Johnson nnd Harry Pulllum
ought to get together on a set of gestures
to Indicate a decision on a ball and a strike
at the plate.
In the confusion of the fm today prob
ablv nine-tenths of the umpires fall to make
t ?lr decisions known to the faithful by
either a defective voice or the lack of a
gesture. A slight movement of the hand
up to Indicate a hall and down to Indicate
a strike, or any such simple Signals, would
accomplish much to srld Interest to the
game, which Is deprived of a great deal of
the old game's excitement by the wonderful
