Clarke and nourko agreed nt noon that
It would be possible to play, but after
Clarke's athletes had galloped around tho
park from 1:15 to I o'clock Clarko decided
that th wind was too brink Tho Pirates
then clambored aboard their closed car
riages and(rtourke regretfully Informed
tho 200 bugs already on hand that they
could get Ihelr money back at tho gate.
Fully WO more fans appeared on the scene
before the hours of 3 o'clock and they

had ever been scheduled to appear In

Too Cold for Plnrlnir.
The Omaha boys were ready- lo play.
But not so Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh play

In tho right yesterday. If was too cold

and fpn. The thwarted bugs also stuck
around to watch the players In their
anttea. Johnny Clanoy and King Brady
formed a vaudeville team and dispensed
big time comedy by the yard. They
helda, wrestling match on top of first
basa which set the bugs Into spasms of
laughter nnd nearly ruined their hand
some features by promiscuous swinging
of spikes. Joe Bell, and Crosby entered
the battlo and piled on top of the atrug
Sling athletes, Jn a minute a battlo royal
started which ended with Brady and
Clanfy dominating the field arid Bell and
Crosby on the run for the prqtectlon of
the club house.
Amnsetnent for Spectators,
Alexander and Bhannon played pitch
and toss before the admiring glances of
tha fans. Alexander showed them hU
low ball and Shanon showed them how
easy It is to drop 'em. After the wrestling
match King Brady butted In and pro
ceeded to show Alexander bow to throw
a. low ball. Tho bugs thought Brady
was gome pitcher, but after viewing tho
night for a minute all agreod that Brady
ought to take lessons from Alexander. j
Brady was the last man to leave the
field. Alexander and he started at the

of hauling his first basemaVs mitt was

The Pittsburgh team Is still In town.
They will do mortal combat today unless

Signs for a game are far from bright, but
what's the difference? If thero are no

When Fred Clarke, tho famous man
ager of the Pirate , team, blew into
Omaha at noon with hla galaxy of basa
ball satellites to engage In a two-game
series with the Rourkes, tho first thought
that entered his mind waa a reminiscence
with Pa Rourke. Pa and Kred are old
friends of 'long standing and they are
well equipped to chin over base ball wars,
post and present, and the old playing
days and everything otso dear to tho
heart of the base ball player, manager
Clarke Is a western man. While en
gaged In baso ball business In tho east
Clarke haa a big ranch In Kansas and
thinks as much of that ranch as he does
of Hans Wagner. It is completely equip
ped with all modern conveniences, inas
much as modern conveniences aro found
In Kansas, and he enjoys a winter's
recreation and Is ready to assume, war
togs the next summer. Clarko likes tho
west and. makes no bones about it. Ho
Is a western man and Is proud of it. .
According to Clarko tho' Pirates have
been meeting favorable training weather
this spring. While tho cllmatlo condi
tions could have been much' bettor at
many times, he can't complain because
nearly all the other teams fared so much
orse. ; JW, . .. .. , '
Sneaking of the Federal loqgue,, Clarke
had llttlo to say. The Injunction suit
against Camnlti was filed by Dreytuss
and Clarke; himself, did not enter the
muss. Ho lost' only Camnltz and mado
up for the deficiency In the twirling staff
by tho annexation of Bob Harmdn. Clarke
docs not predict failure or success for the
Federals, but merely takes the unbiased
judgment of "You never can tell what will
happen In base ball."
Clarko has a likely looking team this
year and many an expert predicts it will
cop the rag. The added strength of Ko
netchy, Harmon, Mowry, Kelly and
others will mako his team much faster
than last year. Joe Leonard, the Des
Moines lad, is making a hard fight for
third base, but Mowry Is too finished a
performer for him to beat out. But he
may stick an u utility man because ho can
hit better than Mowry and Is almost as
good a fielder. Joo Kelly Is a fixture. The
St. Joseph player has filled the hole in
center field and Is playing great ball. Rip
Watson, tho other St. Joseph man, Is
Playing good ball, but hla accident Is
llablo to prove fatal to his chances to
stick in tho big leagues.
Clarko likes Western league ball play
ers. He saya that ho finds them fast and
eager to work nnd also saya he finds that
they know something "when they arrive.
