Gomes Back.
Chicago, 111., Aug. 25. (Special Tel
egram.) The best ball player in the
Western league, according to Bill
Rourke, was purchased today by Pres
ident Weeghman of the Cubs when
he bought Outfielder Earl Smith of
the Omaha club. Bill Rourke was in
Chicago and personally conducted the
business with President Weeghman.
Here is about what Rourke said about
young Mr. Smith.
"He's just a youngster, about 23
years old, hits right handed or left
handed, is five feet eight inches high,
weighs N5 pounds, can run a hundred
in 0'i seconds, is hitting .325 in the

The starters were horses that had

turned to as the favorite, and paced

A record-breaking crowd is expect
ed to attend get-away day at the
Driving club's' Great Western Circuit
Hundreds of horse-racing fans, both
in Omaha and contiguous territory,
have waited all week for the closing
day's program, which will be featured
by the classic event of the meeting
the free-for-all pace, Alamo Engine
purse of $1,000.
Country's Fastest Pacers.
Entered in this race are some of
the fastest pacers in the United States
and Canada. '
Some of the Grand and Great
Western circuit luminaries that will
start in the free-for-all pace are out
to settle old grudges. That a new
state record for pacers will be hung
up is practically a certainty.
O nthe face of things, the famous
Grand circut star, Baden Direct, who
has circled a mile track in 2:01 J-l,
looks like a winner; one thing is sure,
if the famous son of Baron Direct
is "right," the other starters will be
compelled to show phenomenal speed
to beat him.
Ben Earl Looks Good.
If Ben Earl. 2:04!4. Edward Peter-

doubt he will, Braden Direct and the
other turf kings will have super-ani-mils'
jobs on their feet to keep him
from returning a winner:
Then there is Lillian T., 2:02?4;
Sayde Densmore, 2:02; Shipmaster,
2:0554; Knight of Strathmore, 2:03?4;
Columbia Fire, 2:04, a Nebraska
sensation; and a host of other cham
pions that have been entered in the
Horsemen are expressing keen re-'
gret that Hal McKinney, Tom Denni
son's famous stallion, cannot be seen
in the free-for-all today. Hal Mc
Kinney was injured recently when
he was struck by a bolt of lightning
at Mount Pleasant, la., and although
he has about fully recovered from the
effects of the mishap, his owner does
not deem it the wise thing t odo to
ship him here just yet.
The Rotary Club purse of $500,
another event on the closing day's
card, will bring out some of the fast
est trotters in the country eligible to
the 2:19 class. There are thirteen
entries. Nine colts of Great Western
circuit merit are entered in the three-year-old
pace, Burgess-Nash purse of
The driving club's fast half-mile
oval is in excellent condition; a rain,
this morning, in fact would make it
even better, so old J. Pfuv., if he does
not rear up, and then have a heart
betore the races start, can t do any
damage to gel-away day.
Starting Judge Oliver Lehman will
get the horses away in the first event
promptly at 2:30 o'clock.
