MmhiM tor governor on a plaform which
provide for county option, la getting the
aff dally now from the Bryan party com
mittee. Purine the Isst week, a prom Ian t
lemocrat who keeps track of thing polit
ically said the name' of Shallenberger waa
mentioned In ten weekly newspapers. Thot'a
all, Just , ten. Ha took thla to mean that
the publicity department of the Bryan
Committee la looking after Mr. Bryan and
allowlnr Mr. Shelleraberger to paddle h'a

"What could Bhallenberger expect?"
said thla democrat who la watching the
campaign-. "He lost .out In the organlia
tion of tha state committee and Bryan
selected hts own brother-ln law. Mr. Bryan
In running for president and he haa no time
to pay attention to any one fine In Ne

Imagine Shallenberger Isn't doing business

. Berate I.earoa for Rait,
George W. Berge, against whom a deal
was put up In the primary, Jeft today for
the cast to campaign for Bryan and he left
with a faint Idea, that somehow and some
where he had not been treated fairly by
the democratic nominee for president. Tie
knew Mr. Bryan had given his permission
and consent for Vila friend. Mayor Dahl
man, to run for governor, Hnd urged him to
stay la the race when Dahrman offered to
withdraw. In view of Mr. Brynn's proles
tations of hla sincerity and responsibility,
Mr. Berg will ruminate a long time dur
ing hla absence. Just where the screw Is
looae. friends of Berge know that Shallori

back In time to make. a speech or two for
ShHllw.berKer and If he does Mr. Shallen-
berrer probably will get out au injiinclloi
to stop him. .
Traveling; Men's Taft Club.
The Lincoln Traveling Men's Taft club,
at Its meeting last night originated an Idea
that will cut some loe In the present cam
paign. The club passed a resolution to Bend
out u letter to all traveling men and to Hi',
newspapers asking for expressions showing
the conditions In 18 or "Then and Now.1'
Tlio beat of these answers will he Hpread
In a book called the "Rnh of Honor " and
will be preserved for future generations to
ace. The letter will set out that the travel
lug men have no record of the condition
of the traveling, man In 18!W, the railroad
employe, tha patron ofjt)). traveling man,
the mechanic, the carpenter- or In fact any
class of workmen. To get that record old
timers are Invited to send' to the club at
Lincoln expressions used by his patrons
when he attempted to sell goods back In
the democratic, days; expressions of the
railroad employes In those days; the cxjire.i
slon of the farmer In those days In fact,
the expressions of everyone who tried to do
bualnesa. The club believes It will have
one of the best histories of the late demo
crats daya that haa ever been compiled.
Tha club says In the letter that those who
desire may 'enclose with the letter from $1
to HO for a campaign fund. Of this amount
the writer may designate just how much
ho oaati to aend on to New York to help
out Oovernor Hughes, who recently spoke
through Nebraska. The remainder will be
used In the Nebraska campaign. Last night
WO was contributed by three members of
tha club,' of which one half goes to the
Hughes campaign fund.

SECTION KOREWA KILLS HIMSELF
Swan Aaderaon of Pender Commits
Suicide by Hanging.
FENDKK, Neb.. Oct.' 11. (special Tele
grsm.) While his wife and children were
decorating tha grave In the Tender cem
etery where a short time ago his son, a
regular soldier, was laid to rest. Swan
Anderson, section foreman of the Omaha
road, committed suicide by hanging.
Anderson had been despondent and wor
ried for many days because the work on
the section of which he has charge waa
not going to suit him. He complained that
he could "not get men to work for the
Omaha Railroad company at the wages the
company waa paying, some $1.40 per day,
and the roadbed was not In tha best of
condition. Brooding over this trouble and
talking about It Sunday, Anderson took his
own life, fearing he would be responsible
for the death of others In a train yreck If
his track waa not kept up.
The method for causing death was un
usual. Anderson fastened a long, smooth
wire over the chimney of his home and
drew It down over the eavea of the house.
After he placed the loop of wire around his
neck he evidently found It waa too long, but
he got down on his knees and threw him
self forward on the wire, causing strangu
lation and the smooth wire cutting deep
Into the flesh. He waa found by neighbor
and hla family when they returned from
the cemetery at S o'clock, and had evidently
been dead about an hour.
Swan Anderson waa E2 years of age, the
father I of six children and has three sons
and a daughter grown. He haa worked
for the Omaha road, cither In the capacity
of a section hand or boss, for twelve years.

Game Today Chicago at Detroit.
CHICAGO, Oct. 11. After eight innings
of clockwork base ball today, "Wild Bill"
Donovan, premier pitcher of the champions
of the American league, weakened under
the prolonged strain and the Chicago
world's champions captured their second
game of the present series; S to 1.
Detroit's hopes, which were high after
even innings. In which Chicago had made
only one hit, were dashed In the eighth.
In that sensational portion of the ' game
Donovan was hit for a home run, s, triple,
a double and three singles. Incidentally
he walked one man and allowed another to
score on a wild pitch. Overall, on the con
trary, waa steady throughout the game,
holding the Tlgera to four hits and one
run. That run marked Detroit's despairing
effort In their Tialf of the ninth.
Nothing could have exceeded the excel
lence of Donovan's work up to that fatal
eighth. He had speed, an assortment of
curves, which he mixed up In baffling
style, and he cut the corners with the
greatest precision and speed. He had the
best of Chicago's batsmen, swinging wild
and twice struck out the . redoubtable
Kllng. Not until the fifth did the world's
champions connect with his wizard curves.
Then the distinction fell to Overall, who,
considering the ' high class of ball he
pitched, did not need the added glory. But
he did It poked a short fly Just beyond
Downs and the Chicago enthusiasts cried
loudly for a run. It was their first legit
imate chance for ridding 'themselves of
their excitement. Donovan, however, only
smiled and a moment Inter the side was
retired on a flashing double play.
Doivna Reaches Second.
Not a runner on either side reached first
base until the third. Then Overnil passed
Downs and the latter was aacriflced to
second, where his obaequies as a runner
were performed. This was farther than
Chicago went. Overall reached first base
because Rossman, who stopped his
grounder, Instead of covering the bag him
self, waited for Donovan to do so, and the
latter dropped his throw. But the big Chi
cago pitcher got no further. Again In the
sixth Overall reached the initial Hack on
his single, but with thesi two exceptions
Chicago could do nothing with Donovan's
delivery, that la, up to the eighth. Then It
overall's pitching was masterly. Ho waa
found for only four scattered hits, no two
of which came in the same Inning, and onn
of which has to be counted because Meaars.
Overall and Kllng both went after Schaef
rr'B bunt, and each stopping for tho other
to field It. He Issued passes twice. Craw
ford and Mclntyre, who hit above .300 all
soiiaon were unable to connect safely with
his delivery. That he was effective In hold
ing down Crawford with the kind of ball
ho pitched, was remarked by critics of the
game. Crawford Is known as one of the
surest hitters of a high ball In either league
yet Overall curved them around his nock,
or shot them straight across without get
ting into trouble. Each 'aide- waa Credited
with an error, but neither of them figured
In the score.
Weather la Cool.
Up to the eighth the game waa a pitcher's
battle, with both sides for the moat part
going out one, two, three, le began to look
as though the experiences of last year a
championship series, when the same pitch
ers worked, would be repeated, namely, a
tie game. There was comparatively little
noise. The spectators were too highly
keyed by the neck and neck struggle to In
dulge In much cheering. And besides, de
spite the bright sun the air was rather
chilly, which had a subduing effect. There
were a number of rugs and blankets used
with comforts In various sections of the
stands. The main grandstand held a fair
sprinkling of women, whose headgear,
when It happened to be of the latest sweep
ing model, nearly always created consider
able merriment, which was not untlnged
with malice. The stand was crowded and
In one wing men and boya stood up and
cheered wildly when ever a woman with
tho gigantic fall fashion In hats walked
down the aisles. Outwardly the applause
was good natured. but It had Its Inception
In the fact that one of these hats would
block the view of half a dozen spectators,
while anyone sitting at the side of a woman
thus bedecked had to lean far" aside to
keep out of range. However, with the be
ginning of play the mockery of cheers
-teased and the fair spectators saw the
game serenely through.
Home Rnn by Tinker.
Te Joe Tinker belongs the credit for
breaking the spell which Donovan has held
over the Chlcagoana for so long. Steln
feldt had struck out, and Hofman had
reached first because Schaefer, after a
beautiful one-handed pickup of his weak
grounder, had thrown low. The crowd
scarcely hoped for more than a single
and hardly expected that when Tinker
came to bat. Donovan sent a fast walat
hlgh Inshoot over the plate, that la to aay,
partly over It. It never got all the way,
for the atocky Chicago shortstop, who
had already popularized himself by fast
fielding swung victoriously. The ball
soared high, ao high that It seemed cer
tain that it must drop into Cobb's hands,
as that player was playing well back as a
reBUlt of previous experlencea with Tinker.
But there was an unusual amount of
energy behind the hit and It sailed high
and clear Into the stand In right field.
Tinker, preceded by Hofman, trotted
around the circuit amidst tha first real
cheering of the game. Horns were blown,
bells rung, and throats strained to In
crease tha ovation. Manager Jennings
sought to persuade Umpire Kiem that tha
hit should go for only two bases, but
Klem only smiled. Such have always gone
for home runs. The ground rules provided
that hits Into the overflow crowd should
restrict the runner to two bases, but thla
certainly had nothing to do with that
tremendous wallop of Tinker's.
Two-Base Hit by Kline
The application of the rule was Illus
trated by the next man at bat, "Noisy"
John Kling. Kling drove the first ball
pitched Into the overflow crowd In left
field and stopped running when he had
reached aecond base. This onslaught had
affected Donovan, but ha still smiled and
retired Overall on a weak grounder. Ha
went to pieoes, however, when Sheckard,
the next batsman singled over aecond and
cored Kllng. The whole team. In fact,
seemed to be stunned by tha suddenness
of it all. Bheckard made & vrta steal
of second and went to third on Evers' aafe
bunt. Roasman, tn a moment of absent
mindedness brought about hy the general
catastrophe which had happened . to De
troit's aaplratlona. allowed Evers to flaah
away from first and reach aecond, stand
ing up, while the ball remained In tha first
baaeman'a handa. Schulto tripled to deep
left center, scoring Sheckard and Evers.
Then to finish mxtters up, Donovan 'threw
a wild pitch, and Schulte tripped across
the plate with Chicago's sixth and last
run. Chance walked and stole second,
while Schmidt was mining over the ball
In Detrolfa audden fall In fortune, but
Stelnfeldt flew out, retiring the side.
Jones Replaces O'I.eary. -
Detroit substituted D. Jonea for O'Leary
for a final try tor victory and the substi
tute was given his baa on balls. He went
to second on Crawford's out, and scored
when Cobb singled to center. Rossman,
however, hit Into a double play and the
game was Over. The attendance, due
largely to the chilly weather, was only
17,700 paid admissions, according to official
figures made public after the game. The
gross receipts were S36.927.
Late candlelight, there is such Illumina
tion In certain quarters of Chicago, saw
thin, shivering, blue-lipped lines before the
various ticket windows. Some of them,
who might be distinguished by the camp
stools they carried, had been there all
night. Some Tiad had their breakfast, but
many others, with coat collars and should
ers hunched over against the sharp October
chill, drew on the larders In their pockets
for sustenance. Thus they stood while
darkness disappeared and daylight came,
for hours until the wickets were thrown
back and the ticket sellers appeared. Later
many of those who had oeen In line all
night or since early In the morning were
to be seen attempting to dispose of their
purchases at a slight advance In price to
late comers. Many of them, however, were
compelled at the last moment to unload
their tickets for less money than they paid.
A number of professional scalpers, who It
la said, hnd procered a larg? number of
general admission tickets in the end sold
out at a discount of from 50 to 73 per cent.
When play began and the grandstands
were filled there were few unoccupied seats
In the bleachers. To restrain the overflow
crowd, low board fences were erected In
left field. In right center field and along
the four lines beyond first and third bases.
Some spectators preferred to stand behind
this fence ra'her than to sit In the more d s
tant bleachers. Two hundred policeman
under tho personal direction of Chief
Bhlppy experienced no difficulty In keeping
the crowd behind the barriers.

GOXDIXG TALKS OK MINER BROWN
Veteran Catcher Says Morderal la the
Nerviest ot Men.
At least one man In Omaha waa not sur
prised that the Cubs beat the Giants in that
great play-off game In New York, when
ha learned that Miner Brown waa In the
box for Chicago. That man waa Johnny
Gondlng, Omaha's veteran catcher.
Gonding haa caught Brown when he was
breaking In, when he was pitching for
Omaha and preparing to take his place as
the greatest pitcher In the world. He had
more to do with training this young man
than any other catcher. He had a largo
work In taking off the rough edges and
putting Brown In shape for faster company
Gonding knows Brown like a book and
when the -score of that crucial con teat was
flahrd from New York, Johnny said:
"When I aaw by the ticker that Morderal
was In the box. I made up my mind Chi
cago would win. Mathewson Is a great
pitcher, the Olanta had the advantage of
being at home and all that; but I knew
Brown and what he was capable of ac
complishing. I tell you the equal of that
man In point of Iron nerve and doaved
stamina never lived and he's the headiest
nltcher In the business. He's got every
thing In the p'trhtna art that a great
pitcher needs and beslile that, better than
that, he's ant a nerve that no nr man
In the b"!neas poeees. At 'nes llle
that In Nw Vork mnt pitchers wold

course, I mean this condition will soma
aboot rrovidlne the pitching rulea remain
as they are todav.
"What's doing It T Well, the spit ball has
aa much to do with it aa any other one
thtnr, perhaos more. The anlt ball Is some
thing no batter can pui or guard against.
Even tha pitcher doesn't know where It's
going When It leaves his hand, but it'a
sure to put a battar off watch. It Is prac
tically unhlttable. Aceidenta will happen
sometimes and a batter hit one of these
mvsterlous curves, but not often. The re
sult of tha spit ball haa been to cut down
the percentages of some of the greateat
batters baa ball aver saw.
"My gueaa Is that tha man who rah hat
.MO In a year or two will be regarded a
slugger. Of course, that doesn't contem
plate the prohibition of the spit ball, aa Is
now being advocated In some quartera.
The chancea are thry won't outlaw the spit
ball right away, although most big league
managers are In favor of outlawing It. Rut
even If they do, pitchers will discover some
other sort of curve to take Its place. The
fact la. pitching Is developing more thnn
any other department of the game and
that means reduction of batting averages.''

Aa the next best thing the first and
second teams were lined up for a gama.
The feature of the gams was the diffi

he seems at tlmea to feel that he is doing
a favor to the team Instead of appre

The Bhubert attorneys contend that this

Though the proceedings were begun two
months ago, tha question of the validity
of the contract Is no nearer a solution

for the hearing. The Shuberts hope to take
up this matter directly with the United

the appeal before Judge Pollock today the
attorney for the Shuberts, being required
to give a bond for costs, asked that Wood
