Hard luck still stlrka tight to the trail of
the Roukea. In yesterday's gam It was
present at all tiny, although the score
does show that the visitors outhlt the
rioukee by I to 1. The two error made
by the horn teem came Juat when they
counted moat, and each helped the Sioux to
run. In the flrt,j WHh two dcwn, Melter
lodged a shoot ag&inat Qulllln rtba, and
he went to second on Fnlon' hit. Kan
messed Neighbor's, grounder, allowing Qull
tln to acore and Fenlon to reach third,
whence he scored on a balk. In th fourth
Wilson Mt for" a homer with Miller en ec
ond. In the ninth Andreas doubled, Stem
walked, and Qulllen 'singled, scoring An
dreas. Omaha got two In the firat becauae
Alderman was wlld.He hit two. passed one,
waa hit for ,a single, and triad e a wild
pitch. Wilson came In and atopped Omaha
till the fourth, when Gondlng hit safe, stole
second, and scored 6rr Andreas' error. In
the fifth hlta by Morlarty and Welsh com
piled Omuha'i Jirtirth tally. A threatened
rally In the ninth waa'choked off most un
timely. Davie opened with a three-bagger,
Corridon waa hit, and Davis tried to aeons
on Flood's smash to- Hartman, who got It
to the plate la time for a hair-line declalon
against the runner. This ended the chance,
for Kane lifted a fly to center. Score:

Veteran Second-Slacker Should Be Blgr
Help to the Roarke Family.
Tim Flood, the veteran second baseman
whom President Rourke has signed from
Nashville, is in good form and ha been
playing grand ball.
In the last ten games down south he took
fifty-five out of a total of fifty-six chance
at aecond base, having but one error and
he batted around .260. No second baseman
In th country has or can beat that record.
These figures are culled from the box
scores a they have appeared in the Sport
ing News.
If Flood can keep up that lick, Omaha
is all right at second, the hardest corner
of tho infield, and Flood say he knowg
of no reason why he cannot.
"I feel fine; never .better," Bay Timothy,
"and am at peace 'with the world. I cut
out my fighting some time ago and am
down to business."
- Flood is a high-priced man; ha always
been, and he cost Pa a good sum and will
draw a good salary.. Omaha would not
have got htm but for the rigorous applica
tion of the player-llmlt rule In the South
ern league, which allows no team to hold
more than fourteen, jnen. Manager Bern
hard, the old Cleveland pitcher, had more
than the limit an wWup against it.' He
wanted to keep Jrload, but between Pa's
tempting; offer n; certain other- circum
stance within the team, decided to, let
Tim go, which' happened to be much to
Tim' liking.
If any man thinks the Omaha player
are discouraged, , he should visit them at
the Smoke House. '
"I guess we are the first team that ever
lost ten in a row," chuckled Johnny Gond
lng, th Old Reliable. "Well, I once heard
of a team that lost, eleven straight. Don't
w-orry, we are not., W are not going to
finish as low down a we are now, either."
With all the tough luck that ha befallen
Omaha this year, It 1 no worse than ha
come to other Western league teams in
time. Lincoln last- year practically gave
up long before the season was over. It lost
o many games and here it is this year
fighting with the leaders. Des Moine was
aa bad off tn 1908 and yet the next year
It won the pennant.

tour and expect to bring back the bacon.

Pa Rourke Will
Pay Reward for
Ball Players
Offers Cash for Information that
Will Lead to Contract with
Good Men.
Here's a chance for you: If you know
whr to get a ball player who tan de
liver th good, send hi addres to "Pa"
Rourke, and you will receive a cash re
ward. Tola offor Is made In all seriousness;
Rourk i willing to pay wH for any
information that will lead him to a con
tract with a real ball player. M has used
all other mean of getting In tin ,wlth
ome one to strengthen hi team and
break It awful streak of luck. Letter
and telegrams by the doxens have been
aent In all direction, but nothing that
offer encouragement ha been received
In return. Ball player who r able
bodied and fit to play ball can not b
found, It seems.
Louisville announced that It had re
leased two player to Omaha, and the dope
book said they wer both good. Inspec
tion proved that Sullivan wa o crippled
up as to b unable to play; he even de
clined on hi own motion to report, while
Morianlty, who did report, is not in con
dition to play. Th big clubs have plenty
ot cripple to sell, but Pa ha enough uf
these on hi own staff.
Tim Flood joined the team yesterday, and
will soon b in th game. Persona waa
released, having failed to deliver.
Pa Rourke is not discouraged, although
he has reason to feel disheartened. It Is
the first time In hi career a a manager
that he has faced such a fierce run of
adversity. HI effort have alway been
to give his patrons the very best of ball,
and his record nt Vinton Park more than
support this. Omaha ha always been up
and fighting for the prise before this sea
son. When he started thl year, it was
with bright prospect, but trouble has
camped on the trail of th Omaha team
from the very outset, and ha remained
there ever since. Not one In week ha
a single ray of good fortune shone on the
team. In Sunday' games, Lincoln came
mighty near making a record for double
plays, pulling off five, a feat of highest order
and all agalntt Omaha. Even under the
adversity of steady losing, the team 1 put
ting up a good game in the field, fighting
always to hold down the other fellow, but
failure to hit when hit are needed most
accounts for the loss of game after game.
If Welch or Kane could only get his eye
on th ball again, a different story would
be told. ; (H ' 1
Pa 1 figuring' on doing about ten days
scouting on his own hook in the hope of
picking up a pluyer or two. He will start
oma day this week for a swing around
some of tho ball towns, and hopes that he
may be able to land somebody who will
be serviceable. In the meantime his offer
to pay for info.matlon that will lead to a
ball player holds good. '

Speaking ot glad hnnds, Uie one Omaha
extended to Uie Associated Ad clubs ot
America luat night out at the . Ak-Sar-Ben
den was the only real reception ever given
a body of men In the middlo west. It was
Omaha' supreme effort, and It proved
beyond a doubt that Omaha stands second
to none a convention city,.
More thnn 300 guests, as one speaker put
it. "th director of the naUon' commercial
life," gathered from every Important city
in the country, together entered th mystic
realm of King Ak-Sar-Ucn XVI. i and, after
they had met nil the retirements mad
upon on desiring admission, to the Land
of Halley, and had Lcen shown what the
Gate City of the West can furnish In th
way of entertainment, Omaha bad made a
greater advance in tho nation's affair than
It could have done in any other way.
From th time the (Vn special cars left
the Rome hotel until they stopped before
the portals of the king's palace, there wa
one continual cheer; cheers for every town
and city having delegates at the conven
tion, and nearly 'every one followed by a
cheer for Omaha. In the leading car was
the Boosters' band together with about
fifty of the most powerful lunged adver
tisers, and the Journey out to the big shed
was auspiciously headed. "
Two epochs, it mij' eunlly be said, wer
marked by last night s ceremony. The As- '
soclatlon of At clubs, from admissions
made from the speakers'' platform, cele
brated the mos- rousing reception In It
history. Ak-Sar-Ben, with an announce
ment that th total paid membership I now
1,252, firmly established Itself a essential
to Omaha' prosperitj ;, .
