who can successfully manage a major
league team, combatting all the forces of
professional competition, take and main
tain their places In the strenuous race for
championship honors such men are woe
fully In the minority. This Is a fact that
has been sadly, but decisively Impressed
on the minds of owners. Take the Na
tional league and you have Just three men
of proven ability as managers and a. fourth
of promising powers and probable auccesa.
The three who have demonstrated their
kill are Chance, McGraw and Clarke and
the fourth man Is Murray of Philadelphia.
Cincinnati and Bt. Louis have found It
necessary to accept the resignation of
their managers, while Boston would wel
come an Improvement and Brooklyn prob
ably could profit by one. In the American
league the situation Is some better. There
are Mack, Fielder Jones, Jennings of the
highest type and McAIeer and Cantlllon of
recognised ability. But look at these names
In the National league and note the stand
ing of the teams they represent and you
have the milk In the cocoanut ao far as
one side of this question Is concerned. The
three men most successful In building up
and managing great base ball machines
Chance. MpQraw, Clarke kept their teama
o far ahead of all the rest of the league
that except for the fierce and unpre
cedented race between Chicago, New York
and Pittsburg the National league aeason
would have been a monotony. Two of the
best managers In the American, Jones and
Jennings, kept their teams up to the top,
while Connie Mack of the Athletics lost
out, but the chances are that a less able
man than Mack would have finished eighth
Instead of sixth with the Athletics of 1908.
The main fact Is the most crying need of
major league base ball today Is more high
grade managers. Several teams are In
the market for them, offering almost any
price. The right sort of man, one who
can win games and bring box office re
turns, 1 more valuable than the franchise
and oan all but dictate hla own salary.
And It la said that Fielder Jones and
Chance practically do even that. The most
cogent illustration today of what the lack
of a, manager will do for a team Is to be
found In the 1908 record of the New York

LONIiON, Oct. 81. (Special.) Taken a. a
whole, the criticism of the new rules has
been eminently favorable, says the lxmdon
Field. All players have recognised that the
new code will be a great improvement on j
the old and that a good d.'al more labor
has been expended on this year's revision
than has ever been the case before. But
during the few months In which the sub
ject has been open for the discussion of all
golfers who Interest themselves In the sub
ject there seems to be a general disposition
among a militant section of players to
blame the rules committeo for their altera
tion of the out-of-bounds rule to loss of
stroke and distance. That is the rule upon
which the largest amount of criticism has
been fastened. But the obvious objection
to the rule Is not the one which Is usually
brought forward. The obvious objection to
tho alteration Is the practical one that will
help to add to the congestion of the links.
Those who are taking a share In the cam
paign against the udoptlon of the new rule
attempt to bring forward other reasons
why the chsnge Is likely to be harmful to
the playing of the game. Their main con
tention Is that the added penalty for a ball
being out of bounds will lead to timid play
off the tee. As an abstract proposition af
fecting the Justice of the penalty there Is
apparently no disposition to question the
fairness of the rule, but It Is being de
nounced because It will lead every player
In a match to abandon a dashing, slashing
game In the tee shot and to adopt the safe
and pawky tactics of all who believe that
the middle way la ever the best.
Now, Is It at all likely that the penalty
of stroke and distance for a ball which has
been driven out of bounds will tend to
make players creep Ignobly up the middle
of the course? No one In his heart can be
lieve that the new rule will ever make the
altghtest difference to any player off the
tee. Those who are pouring out Indignation
at the proposed new rule apparently wish
to claim golfing sympathy for the player
who, whenever a fence or private property
s near, promptly slices or pulls his ball
over It. Flaying out of bounds In such
case Is to be looked upon as a merit worthy
of exceptionally tolerant treatment. Hav
ng played a bad shot off the tee, the out
of-bounds player is to be so leniently dealt
with that he Is to have a second shot In
order to recover lost ground, while the one
who has played the proper game by keep
ing In the middle of the course may be very
badly bunkered, losing two strokes, per
haps, to get his ball out on the fair way
What the malcontents fall to see Is that
the new rule will redress the Inequality of
punishment which at present exists be
tween the straight and the crooked player.
In nine cases out of ten the ball out of
bounds is the- effect of a bad shot. The
boundary fence Is present to the eye of
every player and If he cannot modify his
grip or stance so as to keep his ball from
flying out of bounds, even with the wind

to try out against the harshness or unfair
ness of the rule. The boundary fence Is
always a better marked hasard on the
course than the concealed pot bunkers lying

It comes to be a question of summing up
the treatment which should be given to a

Just cause for grumbling at the Inequitable
working of the present rule, and not those
who escape so lightly when they drive out
The attempted scare about the effect of
the rule In making the tee shot play more
and more timid la not likely to have much
weight with golfers who know their subjec t
thoroughly and can draw upon a wide ex
perience of play. To harken to this outcry
one would Imagine that tho Incident of "out
of bounda" had only been Invented within
the last decade. Musselburgh and St. An
drews, when each was a great school of
professional and amateur golf, had their
boundaries to beware of Just as much as
the most circumspect of park courses In
England today. Uid the fear of driving
into the gardens at Linkfield deter any of
the great Musselburgh players from culti
vating a dashing and alashlrig style of play
which has rarely been equaled? Have the
statlonmater'a garden and Gilmour Tlace
at St. Andrew, created a "timid" school
of professional and amateur golf there?
No; tho knowledge of the disaster which
would follow from gutting out of bounds
nerved the players to a steadier resolu
tion to keep straight and at the same time
to hit one of their best and longest shots
off the tee.
The new rule, therefore or, rather, the
going back to the old out of bounds rule
will have no effect whatever In creating a
new school of "timid" players, and It
would be paying a poor compliment to tho
experienced legislators at St. Andrews to
believe that they will be In the least de
gree moved by the expression of a fear
which Is groundless.

gued that the organisations might easily
enter Into such a series and that the
women's side of the game would thereby
receive greater Impetus and develop
ment. The other plan haj as Its chief factor
the desire of the women to meet the
leaders among the men In actual tourna
ment play upon the courts. It Is thus
that they receive their best practice, and
the Misses Wlldey, Miss Moore, Miss
Wacner, Misses Hamilton and the Misses
Fish are all eager for such play. The
Idea Is to encourage handicaps with a
mixed entry. This has been tried on the
King's county courts with success and
now the women wish the field broadened.
WOMAN'S PLACE IN LAWN TENNIS
Kew Avenues Opened for Them Dar
NEW YORK. Oct. 3. Women are
fast finding their place in lawn tenuis.
New avenues of endeavor with the
racquet have opened to them this season,
and In this respect the metropolitan
tournaments of this city have come emi
nently to the fore.
The most notable feature of the
renaissance of the women's game Is
the hard hitting of the playoiu. Mr..
Barger-Wallach, the winner of the out
door title, posseases a forehand drive
which is the equal of anything displayed
by those masters of powerful driving, the
English. Miss MaHe Wagner, the Indoor
title holder, accomplishes an amuzlntf
amount of racquet work. Into which he
puts an aggressive physical energy which
has carried her along to prominence. On
foot work the women who aro leaders
excel the men, and tt must be admitted
that a number of them do not lire even
after a long session on the courts. This
fact was made evident by the perform
ance of Miss Alice L. Fish, who accom
plished a feat of continuous play by con
testing eighty-three games. This was In
the final of the Hamilton Grange tour
nament, In which the good qualities of
Miss Fish's game so asserted themselves
that she won four out of five matches.

MORAW 13 AFTER NEW ONES
Giants Hope to Infuse More Life Into
NEW YORK, Oct. 31. When Johnny
McGraw announced a few days ago that
he had forty-four players on his roster
for next season he didn't mean that these
men would atart the Beason of 199 with
the Giants. The chances are that not
more than about twenty-five of the forty
four will accompany tho team to the south
next spring. But there will be more than
twenty-four In that party, and this means
that a lot more young material will be
corraled before the spring training starts,
and all of this new material will not be
made up of untried youngsters and minor
McGraw says that the Giants next season
will not be a two-pitcher team. There Is
a great deal of significance In this state
ment. True, he banks a whole lot on Mar
quard, Durham and Crandall to help out
Mathewson and Wlltse, but McGraw Is too
wise a manager to start a aeason with such
a staff. He knows this from experience
during the closing days of the 1908 pen
nant race. Just one more seasoned pitcher
during the Cincinnati series last month
would have landed the pennant for the
It can be stated with authority that next
season the Giants will have at least one
more seasoned pitcher to start with. The
club had a very prosperous season and Is
willing to spend SX.OUO for classy pitchers.
Who can tell but that deals are pending
There Is another breach to fill In the
ranks of the Giants before another sea
Bon rolls by. A high class left fielder
and hitter Is required. And maybe there
will be two changes In the outfield. Sey

of an inside player to suit McGraw. Sey

classy pitcher has little trouble getting
the best of him.

This is just a short talk on Rheumatism, rointine out its causes
and some or the reasons why so many fail to find a cure for this
painful and often far-reaching trouble.
No other disease is more persistent and discouraging than Rheu
matism. Those persons in whose blood this painful ailment has taken
root, often grow disheartened, and sometimes conclude there is no
permanent cure. Patiently they have blistered and rubbed their aching
joints and muscles with liniments, oils, etc, and faithfully taken pot
ash and other mineral
salts, only to find when
the treatment is left off
the disease returns,

OSCAR J. PICKARD
For County Commissioner
In recommending Oscar Plckard for County Commissioner for the 3d
District, will say that I have known Mr. Plckard for the last twenty-five yearg.
His unquestioned integrity and good and honest business qualities is what tho
taxpayers want In guarding their interests in spending the large amount of
County money, to be expended for a Court House, and other extra improve
ments. He has never been mixed up with any questionable transaction, either in
buBlneBB or politics. This is not a political office and should not be run as
such, as all parties pay their share of taxes.
His record was easily obtained, for he was born In the City of Omaha, ano
always lived in Douglas County. A man should be Judged a great deal by the
business he 1b in and the way he conducts it for himself. If be is too greedy
for money, he is not safe.
The temptations are great with the officers of County, City and Btati
when they have large sums of public money to spend. Some men and offlcen
of very good reputation think it not a sin to, I might say, steal from a Clt
County or State.
From my long experience in public life, and the great Interest I have ir
the welfare of Douglas County, I recommend Mr. Plckard as the safest and
best man to elect as County Commissioner of the Third District at this time
Oct. 30th, 1908. F. W. CORLISS, Ex-County Commissioner.

There are four thousand more Republicans than Democrats registered in this County
this year, and every man of them should vote for T. A. Hollister for County Attorney.
Twice the Republicans of Douglas County have elected a Democrat to this important
office, and now he is asking a third term at their hands; but there is no earthly reason this
year why Republicans should not vote for their own candidate.
When your candidate is at least as good a man for the place as the other party's candi
date, and he certainly is in this case, you should stand by your own candidate; vote for
him and he will be elected by an easy four thousand majority.
Elect Hollister and you will have one of the best County Attorneys who has ever held
that office in Douglas County.
