FOOT bait experts ara discussing tha
probable development of the game
under the rules adopted last season.
It lai too much to expect that the
poeslbllltlfs of play under the new
tyle wpuld be reached In a single season,
nd now coachea and other who were de
spondent aa a reault of the sweeping
changes sen chances fop many plays that
will add greatly to the valuo of the game
and may even render It more spectacular
it was before. It Is admitted that
tifltiT the, old style the same fell far .h
of being Inspiring for those on the side
lined Even an expert In the stands was
unable to determine with exactitude who
had the ball or what move was being at
tempted In the tlmea of close formations
nd mass ploys. With the open game the
spectator geta a fine opportunity to watch
tha progress of the contest. Maneuvers
hava been devised during the summer that
win relieve the game from a condition
Into which It fell last season, when many
times It became a punting match, and by
the practice of theae new tricks Interest will
ba greatly Increased. That no changes
were made In the rules indicates a desire
on the part of those in control to thor
oughly teat the open style of play In-fore
undertaking further reforms. Coaches and
captains are working on the n-w forma
tions and the present season Is likely to
ee the greatest development In American
foot bail since the "tackles-back" was in
troduced. Omaha has not made an good a showing
on the present trip to the west as the
home fans would have liked. The slump
began before the team left home, Lincoln
nd Bloux City getting away with games
that ought to have gone Into Omaha's col
umn. It Is simply another of the remark
able exhibitions, so numerous In base ball,
of the effects of over-anxiety. The young
sters on the team are all eager to win, and
In trying to be extra careful In their piny
have gone to an extreme of uncertainty,
which has Increased as game after gume Is
lost, until they are unstrung and unable to
play ball. Time enough to win the pen
rant remains, if the boys can only pull
themselves together. Dc-s Moines hasn't
made much better headway than Omaha, but
Uncoln has been coming along steadily and
la now bidding for the lead at the close.
Omaha finishes with Dps Moines and Lin
coln with Denver and Pueblo, so that little
choice ia had In the matter of teams to
fclay, except that tho Contest between
Omaha and 'Des Moines makes It easier In
prospect ffcr Lincoln.
Ths Cornhuskers are to try at least two
Hew teams this season, but nono of them
will come to Omaha. If ever the manage
ment of athletics at Lincoln can get over
the short-sighted policy of staying away
from Omaha and will bring a good game
to the largest city of tha state, the annuul
necessity of going about among the student
body and the buslncas men of Lincoln to
beg for aupport for the team will be done
way with. Omaha used to be the best
patron the Nebraska foot ball team had,
until tha management gave ear to the petty
prejudice against the metropolis of tha
tate, and since that time only minor gomes
hava been played here and but few of
them. Some day, the control of, athletics

It Is now hinted that part of the Isboll

Well. Comniy might as well have two
teams as ons In the league, but addlnc an
other dead one to the list Isn't going to
Improve the circuit in any way, and
Wichita Isn't big enough for class A ball.
Tha Western haa suffered about all It can
tand frrfm 'syndicate" ball, and the Com-Iskey-Tebeau-Cantlllon
combination ought
to know It by this time.
Omaha haa suffered more than any of the
other towns on the circuit from the worst
nuisance of the season that of player um
pires. Something of fatality seemed to
pursue the umps In this town. Either the
electrto lights, the paved streets or the
trolley cars got on their nerves, for thoy
fell harder and more frequently here than
anywhere on the rounds. Here's a 'tip to

Eddie MoFsrland haa again proven tho
value of a drunkard to a team. At any
rate, ha has proven himself thoroughly de
pendable, having fallen from grace lust at
tha time when his sen-Ices were most
needed. This, with Nick Alt rock s Boston
escapade, may well be put down aa having
much to do with the final slump of the
world's champions.
Local supporters of the game reel very
good Over the retention of Captain Kranck
for next season by Owner Kourke. Franck
has been head and shoulders above the
other Western league field captains for
the season, and will bring all his strength

NEW YORK. Srpt. 7 "There they go,

Jimmy McAleer, manager of the St. Louts
Ilrowns, when in a game here not long
ago with the Griffith bunch hia teem went
on the rocks all of a sudden and began
to fall down, all together, on the simplest
kind of plays. "H 1, I wish I was some
where flshin' Instead of here."
McAleer Is one of the club skippers
who take the booting business more to
heart than do some of tho other man
agers. Dut he expressed In a phrase the
under the pelt feelings of all the club
chiefs when he made that wistful re
mark. For all the club bosses curl up
one way or another when their teams
begin to boot the ball all over the place.

Characteristics of ttie Player.
Diamond performers who fall to booting
the ball have different ways of taking their
misfortunes. Smno of them collars so
Sbsolutely from pure nervousness that they
sre all but useless for the remainder of the
game. Others bring their tth together
t with a click after committing some pot u-
llarly raw error and getting the laugh or
the Jeer from the crowd for it. and muster
all their Innate aggressiveness. Still others
have a way of grinning a.'ter an error In a
way that throws the fans off as to t'to
player's real feeling.
For example, Dutch Comedian Schaefer,
the accomplished second baseman cf the
Tigers, has a great way of grinning rls'.;t
merrily at the crowd when he Is getting
the long and loud hoot after making an
error he doesn't boot It often, at that so
that few of the spectators Imagine that
Jennings' coaching partner and Germany
Schafer Is one of the few really funny
diamond clowns of today takes nls error
much to heart. Hut he doea take the boot
ing thing to heart. He says so himself,
and franklyv acknowledges that his grin
after an error Is only a phony mask.
"For," he said in talking about this end
of It, "I sure do hate to let the fan gang
see that I'm worrying over one of my own
punkerinos. The bunch In the grandstand
and bleachers are there with the Arg'is
lamps. 'Nothing gets away from them, and
when they see that a pliyer of the opposi
tion team Is hollering murder Inside of him
over a mlsplay they're bound to hand him
the goad so hard that they'll either break
It off or leave It all Inside of him. It didn't
take me long to dope, after butting into
the game, that the booter who makes a
peevish map over one of his mlsplays lays
himself wide open to the kidding stuff.
Now. nobody In the ball playing business1
has got a shade on me when It comes to

I snaps after I've booted a few of them
around the yard, but away burk In the days
when I played on the skinned lots I
schooled myself not to let the bunch see
how. bad I was taking my own mlsplay."
Ellierfeld's System.
Elberfeld, the Tobasoo Kid of the Griffith
clan, has "got a system on that boots
thing," as he puts It. and he believes in
this system Just as implicitly as ho believes
In eating three squares a day.
"This Is my dope on It," he explains.
"When I make one punkerlno I know that
there's another going to trudge right on
the heels of it. I've watched It work out
that way for years and It hasn't often
failed. I can't say as to other players,
but the boots gag always goes tandem !
with me. Nowadays, arter I've juggiea
one, I don't feel like going after the next
thing that comes my way at all. I hate
the sight of It. I don't care If It Is pasted
right at me. In the air or on the ground,
I feel like standing and looking at It.
for I know that the chance Is auout
twenty to one that 1 11 play Jacks with
It. Pretty often, at that, I let the center
gardener take care of It. And when I do
that stops tha booting thing so far as
I'm concerned."
Wee Willie Keeler, the right gardener of
the Griffith troupe, doesn't boot many of
' them. He expresses himself briefly but
pointedly when asked how he feels about
it on one of his rare booting days.
"Like as If I'd never put up a roar
again to the club's business manager for
a lower berth In the sleeper," he says.
I "Like as If I ought to apologise to the
bat boy for living."
Imperial Larry's Notion.
Tha renowned Larry LaJoie, skipper of
the Cleveland layout. Is ons of the most
taciturn men In the game, but he has
some strong views about the booting busi
ness. . "I'va noticed," he said a while ago,
"that few ball players are of any use
for the remainder of the game after
they've made one bad error. If It were
practicable that Is, If I had enough
men, or could carry enough I'd yank a
player out of the game immediately he
made his first error and put a fresh man
In his place. It does not, aa d matter
of course, always mean, when a player
makes an error, that he Isn't In good
trim, but when a player boots one, espe
cially an easy one. It's bound to shrivel
his nerve. He'll fret and fume inwardly
over It. and then the booting thing is
liable to spread to the other fellows right
away. For example, there never was an
Infield, no matter how strong, since the
game began that wasn't likely to go
ballooning once the booting business
set In.

early stages of a game the only thing I
can root for Is that the opposing team
will follow suit! And that's Just what

make me feel so cheap as It docs make
me sore. Sore with myself and every
body. Especially when a roller goes

fourteen miles through quicksand to break
some aged man's arms with a fence picket.
Nothing that I eat tastes any good to me
for twenty-four hours after I've had a

Bob Ganley, the crack outfielder of the
Washington crew, Is superstitious about
the booting thing. He swears by the
teeth of the mask carved horse chestnut
that ho always carries with him as a
talisman that he Invariably dreams of It
the night before he Is going to boot one
muff an easy fly, that Is to say In his
meadow on the morrow.
"I haven't known that dream dopa to
fall In all the years I've been In the game,"
he says. "Whenever I dream that I'm
going to let one grease through my mitts
I know for a dead sure thing that I'm
going to make a show of myself In the
game on the day following the dream.
Just nervousness because of the dream?
Well, It may be that. But, whatever It Is,
through my butter fingers the eld pill
slips, as sure as hops, and I'm left stand
ing out there In the glade looking like
something that's been sleeted on. The
worst of It Is that when I boot one my
batting wicks are filmed for the remainder
of the game, because my goat Is gone and
with It goes my vision. I don't know If
It hits any of the rest that way, but after
I boot one In my lot I can't hit a trolley

Inside of It."

and unobstructed view of the gladiators
In the roped Inclosure. As the fighters will
battle on a raised platform about four
feet In height a spectator perched on the
topmost row of the bleachers will have a
perfect view of the arena and will be ablo
to see each and every blow struck during
the course of the conflict. There will be
no dim light to obstruct the view for an
Instant, such as often mars a fight held at
night In a poorly lighted pavilion. In
Illustrating this point Gleason pointed out
how well the bleacherltes could see the
pitcher go through his motions on the
rubber, and as the ring will be high enough
to enable the purchasers ot admission
tickets to see over the heads of the re
served seat patrons, the boxes will be In
view to every person In the park at all
The properly holders and their friends
who are figuring on getting a free peep
at Jimmy Brltt and Joe Gans when they
are battering each other with the stuffed
mitts will be sorry to learn that steps have
been taken to obstruct the vision of all
such deadheads. Canvas will be used to
cut off the view of all outsiders, so that
the owners and renters of flats will not
be able to sell choice locations at bargain

Clean Breaks la Phllly.
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 7. The municipal
authorities here have sounded a warning
to the boxers, particularly from New York
City, against what they style rough-and-tumble
fighting, now that the really busy
season Is about to open. They take tho
stand that for a fighter to pummel another
when the latter Is not In a position to de
fend himself Is not a square deal and Is
conducive to a free fight, and therefore
tho Philadelphia boxing clubs will strictly
enforce the rule of a clean break this
winter. The first fight In which this rule
Is to strictly observed will be the Murphy
Hylsnd bout, which Is set for September
11. The authorities add that all fighters
who do not care to observe the rule need
not look for matches In Quakertown.
