OKLAHOMA CITY. Okl., March 21.
(Special.) Somo one blundered, somo
one In the Chamber of Commerce, one
who should have known better, when
ho referred President llourko to tho
management of Davis park when the
Omaha mnn was In search of n place
fur his team to play. On the eve of tho
rim exhibition game with Lincoln,
Haturdny, Jlourhc has discovered that
the only street tar lino reaching the
vicinity of the base ball park has less
than ono dozon cars ut Its command;
does not tap the center of the city and
even should every one of the 70,000 In
habltantH of Oklahoma City destro to at
tend the Omaha games this spring, not
more than 1,004 of them can be trans
ported by the street -nr company.
There are three base ball diamonds at
the state fair grounds and street car,
facilities to that pluco uro such that
70.000 person could be handled with
ease, but the die has been cast, the con
tract for Davis park la signed and
Itourke must make tho beat of It.
It was eccentricities such ait the locat
Ins of a base ball park at such an out
oMhe-way place that took Oklahoma
City ff tho base ball map. Abner
Davis, w'jho owned tho local franchise In
the TexSjS league, wont broke, sold his
franchise to Austin through spite and
then orgunlxed the Oklahoma State
league, built tho present park In an. In
accessible place merely to spite a large
street railway company which has sixty
miles of track In Oklahoma City, Be

transfer system It not In operation here

praotlcally 03 per cent of the city It takes

An Innocent victim or these conditions,
the Omaha president has but one chance 1
to get a crowd, and he Is being backed
In hU efforts by many of the leading
clttzena of the city and the Chamber of
Commerce, which la willing to do all It
can to remedy Its original blunder. That
Is to effect n compromso between the
warring factions, or rather a treaty for
ono-month, so that tho rival railway lines

and possibly the larger company can he
prevailed upon to Man additional cars.
If this should not be effected, the ex
hibition games will be patronized by prob
ably not moro than one-third as many as
would like to attend If tho baso ball park
were- easy of access. However, with
nearly J.000 automobiles owned and
operated In tho city, and with asphalt
paving to the very gate of the park, he
should draw more than an ordinary at

passes within half a block of the park,

Its refusal of Sir Thomas Upton's chal
