(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN. Neb., July 5. (Special.)
Politics has been very quiet around Lin
coln the last week. This Is duo In tomo
respects to the fact that no one has filed
for the republican nomination for con
gress during: that time, so that tho eight
now In the race have clear sailing for a,
time at least. Another reason may be
that a good many of tho politicians have
been out of town making speeches.
Governcr Morehe.id has been circling
around tho state. Superintendent Delzell.
who wants to go to congress, has found
It convenient to visit schools. Deputy
Bob Elliott, who aspires to tho shoos of
his chief, thought he saw a few weak
places out In tho state. Auditor Howard.
Who desires to represent the Omaha dis
trict at Washington, circulated around
the Second district.
Tom Hull's Acttvltr.
Tom Hall spent a great deal of tlmo at
Kobcrts' dairy drinking buttermilk: Fred
most of the tlmo when he wasn't visit
ing his potato patch Just outside of tho
uty Auditor Minor stuck to the office
However, tho main reason for most ot
the sllcnco was no doubt due to tho fact
that Colonel John O. Maher Is In tho
dumps. Frlnco Charllo Bryan has BOt tho
fighting colonel on the griddle. Colonel
John filed for the democratic nomination
for governor for the express reason that
ho wanted to meet the prince In Joint
debato after the latter had filed. Now
tho prince has failed to file, and gives no
Indication of doing so. However, he has
a well signed petition In cold storage,
and that Is what Is worrying the colonel.
Mnlier I'p Stump.
Colonel Mahcr, It Is said, would like to
pull out of the fight now that there Is
no chance for any fun with the prince,
but ho dare not do so as long as that pe
tition is on fllo in tho office of the Com
moner. Should John withdraw. Charlie
might file. Should he not withdraw It
will hurt the chances of his friend and
business associate, Andrew Morrlssey, for
continuing another two years as private
secretary to Governor Morohead If the
Berkman knocked around some himself,
while Secretary of State Walt wa fre
quently seen on the street with that little
mysterious basket which Is supposed to
be filled with Abraham Lincoln monu
ment postal cards for distribution. Dep
lattcr should be elected, and result In
the nomination of Georgle Berge. a thing
Maher does not want to see. John had
laid great plans for a campaign of great
unort flshlne for the scalp of tho prince
hut as the thing looks now there will be
no fun for the colonel. Talking anu
woman suffrage Is about all there seems
to bo left for tho valiant colonel.

The first game was fast and Interest

pitching. Sanders was on the mound for

The second game was full of slugging

Olson did well, but the Brewers went up

Rlckenbacher learned the fundamentals
of tho racing game while selling Firestone-Columbus
machines In Omaha and
won about nine out of every ten prizes
at tho races held at the Omaha speedway
Just west of Elmwood park a couple of
years ago. Rlckenbacher drove a steady,
consistent race from start to finish, and
when the Judges announced his time as
3:49.02 the crowd of some 40.0CO spec
tators who were watching the sweep
stakes event rose with one accord and
cheered the plucky llttlo driver time and
Finishes on Dare nlm.
Coming down the stretch at over eighty
miles an hour Rlckenbacher was but
thirty yards from the finish line when
his right hand rear tire burst and was
flung forty feet In the air, but tho for
mer Omaha boy clung tightly to his
wheel, prevented his machine from skid
ding clear around by a masterful twist
and sailed over the finish line and mado
his extra lap on the bare rim. It was a
fitting climax to a wonderful race, and
many a driver would have been unable
to stand tho pressure. For the final ten
miles of the race Rlckenbacher and hla
mechanician both realized that their rear
tires were fast crumbling, but they dared
not stop for fear of being passed by
Wlshart, so they only trusted to luck
and Rlckenbacher's ability to hold tho
car, should the anticipated blow out ma
terialize. Winner Lend for 100 Mile.
Rlckenbacher took the lead at 200 miles,
lelng Just two minutes ahead of
Wlshart at this distance. From that
tlmo on Rlckenbacher and Wlshart ran
neck and neck, each maintaining about
the same speed, and they finished with
tho two minutes tlmo between them. At
the start Rlckenbacher was back In the
lists and at 100 miles was only In third
place. At 100 miles Patschke In his Mar
mon was leading, with Wlshart a close
second. Wlshart was second at tho start
and he held that place with a few varia
tions until tho very last.
Wlshart drove a grueling race. Llko
Rlckenbacher, his average speed was
close to seventy-eight miles an hour. The
diminutive millionaire drlvor stuck to his
pace and never faltered for an Instant.
Ralph Mnlford's Tronble.
Probably the biggest surprise of tho
race was the winning of third place by
Ralph Mulford. Mulford started In a
Mason Special, but was compelled to re
tire at the fifteenth lap on account of
engine trouble. On the seventy-eighth
lap Thomas Alley, Rlckenbacher's team
mate, drove Into tho pits for gasoline.
Tho heat ot the engine Ignited the gaso
line and Alley waa badly burned about
tho face and eyes. Quick work on the
part of pit men with fire extinguishers Is
all that prevented a serious explosion.
After the fire had been extinguished
and Alley had been rushed to the hos
pital Mulford offered to take his place
at the wheel. At the time the second
Deusenberg car was quite a ways In tho
rear, but Mulford, spick and span in his
white shirt, starched whlto collar and
minus the usual head-guard, entered the
race once more and with his blondo hair
waving In the wind came home In third
place after a desperate tusslo with Gil
Anderson in his Stutz. Mulford's ap
pearance on the racing track Is a thing
to wonder at. He never protects himself
beyond a pair of goggles and always
wears the same clothes he does on the
street. At the finish hla face was abso
lutely free from grease or grime while
every other driver on tho course was
black from head to foot
French Engine Falls.
The hard-luck racer of the big meet was
Billy Knlpper, In the same Delage car
which Rene Thomas piloted to victory at
Indianapolis on Decoration day. Knlpper
was among the leadero at the start, but
his engine went back on him time and
again and it was all he could do to force
the French machine under the wire
ahead of Wilcox In the race for sixth
place. Toward the latter part of the race
Knlpper drove on three cylinders and
then mado time that registered nearly ns
fast as that of the leading drivers.

thinking and Instant execution In a tight
pinch was displayed by George Babcock,

Tough Time llenohlnn (Irounils.
The Omahans who made tho trip on
tho special train mlwod tho start and
first few mllea of tho race. The train
was a bit slow In arriving, and then a
tedious procedure was necessary to ar
rive at tho speedway prounds. which nre
about eight miles from Ploux City over
In South Dakota. Tho Omahans worn
hustle! Into cattle cars, which a starter
assured them were regular street cars,
and thev wore hauled at a reduced rnto
of speed for about four miles out Here
they were bundled out and Informed that
thev must take tho shuttle train over the
Milwaukee railroad to tho grounds.
When the street cars nrrlved at tho
Milwaukee station It was already flvo
minutes to 11 and the races started at 11.
After a wait ot a quarter of an hour tho
shuttle train put in nn appearance but
It delayed starting in order to gUe a
through train to St Taul tho track. The
train arrived within a halt mile of tho
grounds at 11:15 and the races had been
In Progress for some fifteen minutes.
Then It was discovered that the rcserv-ed
seats purchased would not nd'8
slon and another lump of coin was
coughed loose by every Omahan In the
Tickets being purchased. It was then
necessary to find tho proper entrance
gate. There were two of these gates,
some two miles apart. Many were com
pelled to make the circuit tour of tho
track, which is considerable tour.
Some miscreant worked hlmeslf Into dis
favor with tho Omaha crowd which came
up In automobiles. Ho gravely Informed
them that tho mob of autos making for
the speedway would make It Impossible
to approach within two mllos of r. gate.
As a result many took the cars only to
find that It would have been a simple
matter to drivo their machines directly
Into tho spcedwny. When tho miscreant
