three runa, and again in the sixth for two
more. Omaha managed to get In three in
the fourth, starting with a single by King,
followed by three baggers by both Hhoon

one in the seventh but could not tie the
lead taken by the Indians.

Itiggerf placed a two bagger and Lotx
scored the first run. Another run was
made hi the sixth when Kane was
passed' and Schlpke sacrificed. Two
errors by Kllroy in left field jt long files
by Kneavea and Oonding brought him In.
The real fun started in the seventh when

COLUMBIA, M6.k Oct 9.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) Rolla exemplified modern foot ball
against Missouri on Rollins field yesterday,
and, by using open play and smashing up
the Tigers formation, held them to a 0 to 0
score. Twice Mlssodri was given big chances
by: the Miners, when Macomber. their star
halfback, rushed trie ball to the Tiger five
yard line, but each time Hollenbeok's Cubs
rose to the occasion and threw back the
Invaders. Alsio Missouri threatened to score
twite when Lemiere's line plunges took the
pig' skin to Holla's twenty-yard line, but
misdirected signals -and poor attempts at
forward passing held the Tigers scoreless

Go to Coasf
President Williams Expresses the
Opinion that in Time Betting- Will
Be Permitted in New York.
NEW YORK, Oct. R. (Special Tele
gram.) Tom H. Williams, president of
the California Jockey club, will leave for
San Francisco Sunday night. He Is
greatly pleased with the success that has
met bis efforts to procure horses for the
cos st tracks, and said today:
The coming racing season on the coast
will be the most prosperous one in the
history of coast racing. Many famous
race horses will be seen there this year,
even though we are, racing under a new
set of rules and lawa that will In a meas
ure take away a good bit of sport In horse
"To me the present racing situation In
New York Is a sad sight, snd what used
to be the greatest racing center In the
world Is a mere shadow of Its former
self. I think that eventually the law pro
hibiting betting will be abolished and
old conditions will prevail. Betting on
horse racing Is what fosters breeding
of thoroughbred hcrses, and the thor
oughbred horse Is an absolute necessity
to the country.
' I don't wish to be understood as say
ing that I favor betting. It is Imma
terial to me, but I think a man should
be allowed to place wagers on a horse
race if he wants to. The whole game of
life Is nothing but a chance, not a whit
different than betting on a horse race,
and to those who can afford It, It la
simply a pleasure and adds r.est and
life to the race. It is no different than
a man who takes a chance In opening a
business where there Is strong competi
tion. Of course, excessive betting by
people who cannot afford it Is a men
ace to public morality, but that could
be fixed by proper legislation. This
will be done, and soon, . for as aoon as
the people realize that the future of the
American thoroughbred horse Is lndanger
they will demand that the betting laws
be modified. If necessary to protect the
families of men who cannot afford to bet,
and in my opinion It won't be long be
fore such laws are passed."

Beat Alumni in
!.' Hard Game
01d-Timer Show Great Form, but
Cannot Stay the Face from
. Ill Condition.
The first alumni game ever held at
Bellevue .took place Saturday at Belle
vue. Many ef the stars who shone for
Bellevue In former years were In the game,
and their fierce play shows that but little
of their old time form has been lost. Al
though they .lost by the Bcore of 13 to 0,
they were not easily beaten. The contest
was not cinched for. the varsity until the
last quarter. Kearns, an old All-Nebraska
star, was the mainstay of the
alumni line, often nabbing the Bellevue
quarter before he could pass the ball.
Stroud, an ex-guard, also broke up many
of the varsity plays behind the line. "Nig"
Dow was hack in his place at left end.
Ohman, '08, ran the team, at quarter as
though he had captained it all aeaaon.
Bellevue scored In the first three min
utes of play, Jones left end, racr.ng twenty
yards on a fumble to the Alumni two
yard line. Claubaugh carried the ball over
on the next play. Johnson missed goal.
Score, 5-0. In the second quarter the
alumni backs missed a punt, which rolled
over the goal line and waa touched down
by a Bellevue man. Clabaugh missed goal.
Score, 10-0. In this quarter Bellevue again
threatened the alumnf goal, carrying the
ball by line plunges and short end runs
to the four-yard line. Here tha alumni
took a brace and held like a stonewall,
the ball lacked only a:x Inches of being
over on the third down, when time waa
called. There waa no scoring in the third
quarter although the play was in the
alumni territory. Bellevue forced the
alumni back to their own four-ard line,
and Moore fell back to kick, but instead
caught the varsity asleep and ran the ball
back alxty-Qve yards In the last quarter
the alumni began to show the r lack ot
training, time was taken out frequently,
and though, there was no let up In nerve
and spirit, they were unable to advance the
tall or come back hard enough to hold
the better trained varsity, who carried the
bal through the alumni line to tha f f teen
yard line, where Johnson scored the last
three points of the game by a drop kick
Time was called with the ball again dan

Persistant AavavUalnf Is the Hold to
WILLPLAYEBS CASH CHECKS?
Big League Presidents Think They
Will Not Do It.
HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE MEN
President l ynch gave the Mars nM.
Use that Their Rood ftalarlea for
l Months Depend on Keeping;
naae Ball Well Organlaed.
Presidents of the big leagues say that
the checks advanced to the players who
expected to play In the post-seaaon all
star series will be returned by the players
and that no trouble Is anticipated. Both
Lynch of the National and Johnson of the
American are confident the all-star series
candidates will not act on technicality.
"I am taking no stock In all this talk
of the players who were given checks In
advance to play In the all-star games tak
ing advantage of any technicality and
cashing these drafts on the date when the
series was to begin," said Tres:dent Yynch.
'There Isn't a ball player connected with
either of the big leagues or with the
minor leagues for that matter who doesn't
realize that the very life of the game-the
Income he receives six months In the year
through his skill on the diamond-depends
upon his individual efforts to keep the
fport clean from all suspicion of unfair
dealing or crookedness. Consequently any
effort to place a player In the poslntlon of
doing a dishonest or unworthy act Is cer
tain to meet with failure, for your ball
player of today isn't built along those lines.
"I have been Interested In base ball for
nearly thirty years. In that time I have
come In contact with thousands of players.
some of whom were hard to handle, while
others were tractlble In every sense of the
word; but of all those thousands of men
with whom I had personal dealings not
one ever gave me reason to believe that he
wasn't on the level that he was not al
ways thinking of the high standard of the
game and doing all In his power to avoid
casting any reflection upon the sport that
might be construed Into anything dishon
est or not strictly on the level.
Admiration for Backers.
"I have the greatest admiration for the
Cincinnati men who were willing to risk
a small fortune In trying to bring off this
series. Of course, we must acknowledge
that they were 111-advieed when the pro
jected this series of games. At the same
time they acted like true sportsmen In
every phase of the enterprise. They were
liberal in their terme with the players;
they went after none but the best men for
their teama, and when the National com
mission and the club owners decided that
the games could not be played under the
rules of organized base ball they grace
fully and unprotestlngly accepted the de
cree of the base ball officials, said nothing
about their losses, actual and prospective,
and-promptly called off the games.
"Nor can the players who were signed
to play in these games afford to be less
sportsmanlike. I note with pleasure that
several of the men have already returned
their checks, and there is no doubt In
my mind that the others will do so In
due time long- before the date set for
the assembling ot the teams in Cincin
nati for the beginning of the1 series. They
can do no less, and I am certain that
they all feel that -way about It. 5 Do you
auppose for an Instant that any ball
player, whose name has stood for every,
thing that la honorable and good and
high sclaaa In base ball, would run the risk
of being pointed out by thousands of
spectators at every game spectators
made of the highest type of men, women
and children in America aa the man who
held out on a check to which he was not
entitled; In other words, who had welched
on a sporting proposition by falling to
make good under all the laws that govern
fair and square sport? . Would he take
the chance of being singled out as the
man who couldn't be trusted; who, through
taking advantage of the slimmest kind of
technically In a financial transaction,
might be expected to draw an equally thin
line In the matter of right and wrong per
formances on the fold? Not for a moment.
"I don't believe that there la a player
In the business who would Jeapardlze hla
high standing with the public and the
clean record of the game Itself by work
ers who were signed 'to go on the all
star tour are being urged to do. And I
feel certain that before the world's series
is over every check that was sent out by
the Cincinnati backers of the all-star tour
will have been returned to them."

senatorial Investigating committee yester
day. President Johnson of the American league
was equally emphatic In hla declarationa
of confidence In ball players In general,
and In the men who had signed to go on
the all-star tour In particular.
"I am certain that every player who
signed to go on this tour, and who received
his check for his services In advance, will
be as straightforward and sportsmanlike
as Livingston and Wllbern were in the
matter of observing and obeying the rules
of organized base ball," declared Mr.
Johnson. "Neither of these men hesitated
in calling off the tour and accepting their
loss gracefully as soon as they were In
formed that It would not be possible to
stretch the articles of the national agree
ment to fit (he enterprise they had pro
posed. And it Is not to be expected that
ball players, whose salaries are main
tained and whose future as players Is as
sured by this same national agreement, can
or would do leas than these men, who are
outside the pale of organized base ball,

Two Important viewpoints of the auto
mobile tire question which owners are very
liable to neglect entirely or to consider
only in a hurried manner are those of
load placed upon the tire and the Influence
of flexible chassis construction on the life
of the tire," says Ouy Smith of the Frank
lin agency. "The rapidity with which
automobile tires wear out la approxi
mately proportional to the square of the
excess load. That Is, If one car weighs
twice as much as another using tires of
the same size, the tires on the heavier
car will wear out about four times as fast
as those on the light car.
"When the load to be carried and the
carrying capacity of the tire are consid
ered there should always be an excess In
favor of the latter. With the same carry
ing capacity a small load can be carried
a much greater distance than a heavy one
before there Is a breakdown or a general
"The tire that la not overloaded or
crowded to Its carrying capacity will not
blow out unless from some violent external
cause, the greater factor of safety being
sufficient to take up the usual strain of
"Besides weight a force contributing
largely to the wearing out of tires is ex
cessive road - shock. On cars using semi
or three-quarter elliptic springs the rigid
portion transmits the shock back through
the frame and allows practically the full
weight of the car to pound the tires during
travel over rough roads. With proper
spring suspension the weight of the car re
bounds with 'a light spring motion that
absorbs all the violence of the shook and
reduces wear on all vital parts of the auto
mobile, particularly tires, to a mlmlmum.
"On a car with tires loaded cloae td their
carrying capacity the matter of sufficient
air pressure is one which Is 'rather gen
John P. Davis of the Pioneer Implement
company says: "Out In Paakenta county,
California, where the sheep men flourish,
the' automobile has come into its own and
has supplanted that faithful friend of man,
the sheep dog. Sheepmen are using Jackson
cars for driving herds of sheep from Corn
ing to Bed Bluff, a distance of twenty-five
miles, in one day. Under tne old-fashioned
way but ten to twelve miles can be cov
ered. The Paskenta county owners are
now scheming to Jerk up the rear wheels
and use the motive power of the Jackson
to operate sheep shearing machines. O. C.
Mitchell & Sons of Corning, who were the
first sheepmen In southern California to
try the automobile for driving sheep, say
they can double their work each day by
Its use." -
Colonel Jim Deright says: "One of the
proudest boasts of Napoleon I was that he
would be not the descendent but the
founder of a great family. The blood of

not a few of their name have achieved
