Eighty-Six is High.
George Redlck stood up before the
traps at the Omaha Gun cjub Sunday
afternoon and proceeded to peg the fly?
ing blue targets until he had accumu
lated enough hits to walk off with the
Fred Gilbert trophy. Redlck busted
eighty-six out a possible 100 rocks, which
Is considerable shooting considering the
wind and weather.
About thirty-five ardent shooters pas-
timed at the club yesterday, and when
they couldn't find a place at the traps
busily burned up powder and money plug
ging old tin cans and the like. Sam
Huntley was second high with eighty
four breaks. '
Oeorge Carter of Lincoln and George
Maxwell, the one:arnwl shooter from
Hastings, were two professionals, who
participated In the shoot, ' although not
eligible to try for the oupn. Charles
Thorpe of Geneva also took part. Thorpe
Is an old personal friend of , Fred Gil
bert and wanted to shoot in a Gilbert
shoot, even though he could not com
pete for the cup.
Hold Memorial Skoot.
The Omaha Gun club has deflntely de
cided to hold a Billy Townsend Memorial
Shoot this year. The date has not been
determined, but will probably be July 4,
as last July i, Townsend shot his last
shell' at a blue rock. Then he took but
one shot, his physical weakness being
so great he could not handle his big
gun ' any further. The gunners woud
like to hold the memorial shoot on Town

advisable as It comes In December,

Famous Phantom Middleweight to
Exhibit at Krug Theater with
Brother Tommy.
Mike Gibbons, acknowledged by all
critics and near critics as the peer of the
middleweight division, per recent victo
ries over Eddie McOoorty and Jimmy
Clabby, will show Omaha Just how fast
and clever lie is at .the Krug theater to
night. Mike will appear with his brother
Tommy, who Is also some tangolnt
Mr, Gibbons Is the well known phantom.
The appellation lias been bequeathed on
him because of his mastery at slipping
In quick but effective Jabs and then duck
ing out of reach. lie Is faster on his
feet than most lightweights and carries
good kick In either mitt, which. If the
opponent Is caught unawares, will send
most anybody into dreamland.
Present day fight critics believe Mike
Is as good If not better than Stanley
Ketchel, who was said to have been the
greatest of all mlddlewelgbts. Gibbons
is a ten-round fighter, but there are those
who believe he can travel the long route
just as well.
In addition to Gibbons and his brother
several wrestling matches have been
carded to fill out the evening. Manager
Franke says the grappling bouts will be
neat ones and well worth seeing.

from the big village to the exposition,
the New York Nationals took the Town-

The Townsends never had a chance. The

their eyes shut and seldom missed. Their
team-work wan an exhibition of a roaster
science and the local guards were help
less to break it up. Ono gentleman named
8chmeek flipped eleven baskets, which la
considerable flipping. The Townsends
might have made a better showing, but
played In spurts, sometimes fast, and
sometimes rather slow. The New Yorkers

schools In the university event cloned
when the offlclil entry of the I'nlverslty
of Michigan wna received. It Is the first
time the big. Wolverine school has been
an attendant at the western claasto and
their entry means that they will attempt
to hold the place In western events that
they have held for several years In the
eastern relay contests. Their entry also
means that every school In the entire
middle west which has even a presentable
relay team will be on the Drake stadium
April 17 to do battle for the western
The teams which have made definite
entry In the university class are:
Iowa State College of Agriculture,

It also Is possible that Notre Dame will
be present with some of the athletes of
that school, men who have a national rep
utation as sprinters and runners, but who
have not been prominent In the relay
racing game, the combination of indi
vidual speeo and. team spirit.
Cnllea-e Entries.
The college class does not draw Its
entries from as large an area as the uni
versity, five state being represented here
as against eight In the university clasn
and the preponderance of schools and
winners being more largely from Iowa.
Three new teams to the carnival will be
seen this year In Penn college and Iowa
Wesleyan from Iowa and Carleton from
Mlnesota. Another, but not a new team,
will be represented In the event. Orlnnell
deciding to cast Us lot with the Iowa con
ference svhools as against the university
class, the change aJlowlng It to use some
of Its star freshmen. Coe and Hamline
have been the tilg winners as Individual
schools In the last two years, but It Is
probable that Grlnnell will be In the run
ning In the half-mile and quarter-mlln
events. Yankton, Brookings snd Knox
are certain to be strong In the two-mile,
ks will Mornlngslde, while the Carleton
team Is aupposed to have a very good
class of sprinters.
The college entries are:
Carleton college, Northfleld, Minn,
Cornell college, Mount Vernon, la.

Thirty Tllah Schools F.ntrr.
Thirty high schools nlresdy have en
tered, these schools representing all cor
ners of the state. It Is expected a few
more will bo allowed to compete If they
can show records worthy of entrance. To
make arrangements for so many high
rchool teams It has been found necessary
to add a fifth event to the high school
list. The new event will be a novelty In
Iowa relay circles.
Three or four committee of Drake men
already are at work making the prelim
inary arrangements for the big event, and,
while the other relay carnivals have been
managed as if run by clockwork, it Is
hoped to make the machinery for running
this event, moat certainly the largest ath
letlc event of the year, still more perfect
than that of the past. It has been de
cided that the meet will start at 2:S0 and
the time schedule, which alwsys hag been
adhered to, calls tor the starting of the
last event at 4:30.

Chief Justice 'Notes that Supreme
Court is Keeping Up with
Work This Year.
Although the supreme court of
Nebraska In two years behind Its
docket, end the problem has long;
been how to expedite the work of
that court and catch up once for all,
Chief Justice A. M. MoniBsey at a
banquet at the Pontenelle Saturday
night, which marked the quarterly
meeting of the Douglas County Bar
association, declared that the court
had kept up with the grind since
January 1. He said he had had made
an estimate of the cases handled and
filed since January 1, and had found
that while seventy-eight were filed
In that time, eighty-three had been
disposed of. Thus the court has
gained five cases In two and one-
half months.
Judge MorrUscy, however, did not
promise that this pace would be kept
up. He did not announce it aa the
solution to the problem, but gave It
as an Interesting incident. The cases
disposed of normally In the supreme
court lu a year, he said, were about
350 to 360, while the normal or aver
age number filed annually amounts
to 600, thus throwing the court every
year about 150 cases further behind
In Us work.
The Judge said he had no boasts to
make of plann to reorganise the supreme
oourt, or to reform It or Its methods, but
promised that he would simply do the
best he could whUe In the office of chief
Two hundred attended the banquet.
Charles McDonald, president of the asso
ciation, was toastmaster. Judge W. A.
Redlck discuaxed the Initiative and refer
endum, especially In its connection with
the recall of Judges,snd declared the re
call of Judges feature to be dangerous t)
a representative form of government. Ho
urged the lawyers to use their Influence,
sgalnst the psssage of legislation tending
toward a system of recall of Judges.
Judge E. B. Elliott or Rapid City, B. D.,
now sitting In the Omaha division of fed
eral court, bad been Invited to the ban
quet by the toastmaster, Charles Mc
Donald. He had told the toastmaster also
that be wished to be excused from speak
ing. Rut someone Insisted and he had to
get on his feet It was Chief Justice
Mnrrlssey who mentioned Judge Elliott
and asked to hear from him. Judge Elliott
said it was Impossible to disobey the man
date of a supreme Judge, ma he spoke
briefly, confining his remarks to a fetch
ing little story of "the old swimming
hole" days, that took all the legal lights
back a good many years.
Judge Lee En telle told some southwest
ern stories In big Inimitable style, and
concluded with remarks extolling the
honor and Integrity of the bar. He called
attention to a minister who had once bit
terly criticised the legal profession, and
answered that minister by saying the
Savior himself would not have had a
burial had It not been for the lawyers.
Judge Willis a. Sears, the last speaker,
told several good stories. He began with
the story of tho man charged with mur
der who was released from Jail In the
northern part of the state in the early
days to play the fiddle for a dunce when
It was found there was no other fiddler
In the neighborhood. He told of how this
man through the connivance of the sheriff
waa later allowed to break Jail, because
no one would try him for murder afUr
he had served the dance so well. He fol
lowed with teveral others snd left his
hearer In excellent spirits.
