The fight for the plane of th holding of
ftir tournament promises to be fat and
fi rlnus this year as there are three cltlea
In active competition for the event and
several others whh h would take It If It
wan offered to them.
Omaha, from the viewpoint of the western
tennla playera and a good number of the
eaatern members alao, ha the strongest
claim for the honor. When the tournament
was proposed It was more or less of a Ven
tura and It was given to Omaha because
that was the only city that made a real
campaign for It. Omaha made a success
ful tournament of national Importance out
of this slim chance, and It Is now a plum
worth th while.
However. In the coming meeting, to be
held the first week In February In New
York, a record-breaking fight la expected.
The Pittsburg Athletic club, with Its new
ll.eoe.OOo-elub house and gTounds, is out for
the tournament and Washington and At
lanta are also strong candidates. Cincin
nati and St. Louis, will make application,
but It Is understood that they are neither
of them prepared for a strong fight on the
Working far Omaha).
The Omaha Field club tennis committee,
headed by 8. 8. Caldwell, has been work
ing hard for votes of the representative of
th meet In favor of this city. There are
L'iO clubs In the National Tennla associa
tion and many of these are eastern organi
sations. However, the west and aouthwsat are in
favor of Omaha and several clubs in the
middle west have already declared In favor
of Omaha. The Pes Moines man, who lead
the tennla players of Iowa, passed a resolu
tion lately. In favor of Omaha and word
was reoeived from Brandon and Barton, the
great tannla playera of South Dakota, John
Hailey of Oklahoma, and various others of
the tennla men of the west, that their men
would boost for this city.
Dr. P. B. Hawk, a member of the execu
tive committee of th tennla association of
the United States, wrote from Illinois that
he would help Omaha In every way possible
and that although a hard fight was on It
looked aa If Omaha would get th a vent.
If Omaha can capture th tournament tnr
the year 1111 It will make th national clay
court championship an annual event for
this city. The tournament will undoubted)
stay In the west on account of the strong
feeling now on between western and eastern
tennla playera, which this ruling- would
help to soften. ...

as It has been since the National commis

The re-election of AiiRiist llerrmatin. bet

of the commission, promises a continuance
of the present capital state of affairs. In

The player who enrolls himself today In
the professional class knows that he is
assured of a respectful consideration of
any claim which he may make, and If the
merits of the case are with him he Is cer
tain of a decision In Ills favor. ,
Hard Problems to Kolve.
There have been knotty problems before
the National commission in the past and
there will be knotty problems In the future,
but there has yet to be shown a disposition
on the part of the men who compose it to
act other than from the slncerest motives.
Players occasionally believe that their
rights are" Infringed upon. They thought
so when the National commission ruled
am'ainxt post season games of doubtful de
sirability. Yet the player must learn that,
to maintain his own livelihood, and to pre
serve the national game in the higheet re
pute, ha must lend his assistance as heart
ily to its good as the owner.
fo the player It may appear a light trifle
that a world's championship team, or any
part of It, should go to another country
fcnd be beaten In a series of games. .The
player understands the reasons better Mian
the casual observer. The player knows
that the same amount of energy and de
termination to win is not as. likely to be In
jected Into a game in which a champion
ship is not at stake as will be in evidence
In the persistent effort of a league season
In the United States.
The man who does not study base ball
with thoroughness, but looks upon it solely
as an attraction, is more inclined to take
a surface view nf the game and consider
that any championship team which has
been beaten has had Its prowess "smudged"
More than that. If It la right to play
post season series with one set of players,
it I quit a right to play them with all
seta of players, ..nd the first thing organ
ised base ball would have to face would
be a series of contest in which discipline
would be thrown to the winds and the
reputation of player would be blighted.
If baa ball is worthy what the American
public considers it to be worth, it cannot
afford to have shadows cast upon a euo
cesxful season by a very dlsgracefuj and
ordinary post season.
The player should feel every bit a muoh
pride In their achievements as Is felt by
the owner more, if anything. They should
never be guilty of conduct which mars th
esteem in which they are held by th
Their interest in the Integrity and good
repute of has ball Is aa Important, or more
Important, If anything, than that of th
club owner. To them it I a livelihood.
Better, therefore, that all possibility of
scandal ba eliminated than that there be
the slightest morsel of scandal to roll under
tongues which are as keen to relish It In
one kind of sport as another.
vr Drafting Role.
Not all may understand, under th orna
mental verbiage which la necessary to pro
mulgate base ball rulings, the new depart
ur taken by the commission in regard to
the drafting of players.
In brief, it clearly provides that no major
league club In the future Is to be permitted
to draft some player from a minor league
club for the benefit of another minor
league club or major league club.
A severe penalty haa bean provided, which
will probably put an end to that sort of
thing, if it aver existed. The rule I well
Intended and will be well enforced.
Kucli base ball club in the game should
stand for iteelf, whether It be a major
league team or a minor league team. It
Is manifestly unfair to players and to other
clubs If any one club organisation shall
work conjointly with another to recruit
players for a third. The new rule meana
that the opportunity in base ball tor a
free and open trade and exchange of play
era ia to be kept strictly on an honest basis.
The unfairness of permitting any one
team to help build up another at the ex
pensc of six other clubs In the same league
is so evident that It needs no particular

been a warm advocate of Bender's during

Dr. Clapp sold that he was satisfied with

abolishment at Nebraska. The secretary
aald that he favored th abolishment, but
only for th time being, and ha had heard

"The members of th conference wer

wa not to the liking of the Cornhuakers.
"They all beleve that base ball can be
played at their schools without the assist
ance of those who engage In aummer base
ball and, further, that they can prevent
the misrepresentation which often allows
men to make the team, although debarred

they want to give it another tiial, and that

V.V.IUN(iTON. Jan. II "We contend
thai rates are ample, but that the expense
of cpeiatlon Is excessive; that wages are
not too high, but that, as the management
Is unscientific, labor, materiel, equipment

management, tinder which the railroads
shall get 100 cents for every dollar ex

fundamental reason. In his mind, why
freight rates should not be advanced as
proposed by the railways.
Mr. Rrandeia declared that no railway
company operating In official classification
territory had Introduced into any of its
departments the principles of scientific
management. Me believed these principles
were as properly applicable to railroads
as to any other Industrial enterprise.
Attention was directed to th statement
of the railroad officials that the proposed
freight advance would contribute to the
operating income of the railroads In the
eastern territory only $27,010,000.
"This sum." said Mr. Hrandels, is little
more than 3 per cent of the aggregate
operating expenses of these railroads. It
cannot be seriously doubted that If a de
termined, co-operative effort were made
by these railroads to reduce the operating
costs It would be found possible to affect
a saving of 3 per cent even without the
aid of scientific management."
No Actnal Co-Operat Ion.
lie pointed out that no actual co-operation
existed among the roads with a view
to reducing the cost of any particular op
eration. If there were co-operation anions
the roads, the highest measure of efficiency
could be obtained and the saving of 3 per
cent of the aggregate cost, or even far
more than 3 per cent, readily could be ob
tained, he said.
Co-operation, also In .Mr. Brandeis' opin
ion, would secure reductions in the cost
of steel rails, In the price of whioh. he
believes, an enormous saving could be

Mr. Brandeis, "have altogether sixty-five

he continued. "This would result In re
ducing the present operating cost of the
railroads an average of 30 per cent."
Mr. Brandeis then presented figures to
indicate that this estimate wa moderate.
A saving of 20 per cent In official classifi
