control at first was good, but by no means
perfect. He quickly steadied, however, and
pitched superbly until the sixth Inning. It
was here he went to pieces and the gamo

lowed Walsh to walk and a moment later
hit Hahn In tha nose, breaking It. A doc

for Hahn and finished the game for him.

The bases were now full with nobody out.

'' Nationals strike Oat.
On their part the Nationals started but-
like winners. In the first Hoffman sent a
clean single to center. Bheckard struck
out and than Hoffman killed alt chances
to score by trying to steal second, where
lie waa thrown out. The next moment
Bchulte doubled to left, but it did no good,
for Chance went out, Isbell to Donohue.
Thereafter till the ninth the Nationals
never gave a hint of designs on the home
plate. Walsh held them completely at his
mercy, apparently growing stronger and
steadier every inning. When the game
opened the Nationals swung viciously at
his offerings, but before the contest was
half over they war fishing for the ball,
seemingly trying merely to touch It. Any
kind of e hit would bar looked good, but
mostly when they did not strike out they
rolled puny gTouuders to second or short
and ware out easily.
In the ninth Gwasler went to bat for
Pfelster and reached first because Isbell
fumbled hi grounder for a moment. Hoff
man went out via Isbell and Geesler
reached second. ' Bheckard for the second
rime missed three good ones. Gessler beat
Sullivan's throw to third because the
catcher juggled the baft for a moment. A
bit ; meant a run, but Bchulte became a
victim of Walsh's curves and the third

Request of Commission.
LOb ANGELES. Cal.. Oct. ll.-Whatever
may have, been the plans of the llairlman
lines for Interpreting the railroad rate bill,
their first endeavor did not meet with the
approval of the Interstate Commerce com
mission, as shown by letters received from
J. Charlton, chairman of ' the Transconti
nental Passenger association at Los Ange
les. Mr. Charlton quotes a letter from Chair
man Knapp of the Interstate Commerce
commission to Eben E. McLeod, chairman
of the Western Passenger association, ask
ing what road sent out a certain letter,
through the association, announcing that
It did not regard 'he new law us prohibit
ing the half rates allowed to army officers,
their families and servants, the United
States reclamation service employee,
teachers and pupils of Indian schools and
employes of the United States geological
survey. This letter, Mr. Knapp recalled,
had bfld the exceptions In section f of
the rate bill to be "Illustrative and not erf-
elusive" and refetred to the supreme court
as authority fur so regarding It; also that
it would continue granting the half rates.
at least until tne question or legality can
be passed upon by the proper tribunals.
Mr. Knapp continued by saying that wheu
tills act came to the notice of the Inter
state Commerce comniiaaion lie telegraphed
Mr. McLeod that the commission would not
stand for being placed lu such position and
that half rates positively must not be
granted to any of the persona mentioned
unless the government required such rates.
Mr. McLeod Informed the Interstate Com
merce eommlss'on then that the road In
question was the Union Pacific.
Chairman Charlton states in his letter
that the Union Pacific now has withdrawn

Chief among tha developments In the
Rummt-lhart murder cape Thursday was
the fruitless termination of the clue which
the South Omaha police, assisted by twa
detectives from Omahs, followed Wednes
day and Wednesday night. The man they
trailed aas finally located and arrested,
but he proved not to be the man they j
tliought they were following.
The negro they searched for wus sus
pected of being the one who terrorized the
women in the vicinity of Rlvervlew park, i
and anlde from the fact that he was wanted i
for the acts committed there the police !
held the theory that he might know some
thing of the murder. Ernest Wilson was
arrested In this connection Tuesday night
by Omaha officers, but he was not Identi
fied as the Rlvervlew park (lend. Then the
South Omaha police got a clue they thought
a good one. The second arrest proving a
mistake, the police are left to take an en
tirely new Murt.

the four young men were thrown out and
all more or less Injured. The team got
away from them and was finally caught at
the home of Charles Meyers, about thre
miles north of Florence. This was about

happened near tho Meyors' home snd Mr.
Meyers helped repulr the tongue of the
