Accumulate Fourteen Kits and

of Seven to Five.
The Rourkes for the second time
this year demonstrated their clas
yesterday afternoon by lacing the' Mil
waukee American association club, 7
to 5, before less than 200 people.
The Rourkes had their war togs on
yesterday and they hammered both
Goodwin and Feath, the twirling Mil
waukee persons, in a most scandalous
manner, accumulating a total of four
teen blows.
Earl Smith, just returned by the
Cubs, who overlooked a good bet
when they discarded him, led the on
slaught with three bingles, one of
which was a triple. Shag Thompson,
Cy Forsythe, Joe Burg and Hal Brok
aw each combed out two hits.
Three.runs was the toll of trie first
Rourke bombardment m the second
stanza. Cy Forsythe started it with a
single to left. He took second on
Burg's infield out and counted on
Tony Brottem's two-base knock to
left center. Hal Brokaw hit the left
field wall with a double scoring Tony
and Sfter Currie whiffed, Smith
doubled to left, scoring Brokaw.
In the next round Thompson beat
out a bunt and Krug walked. Both
advanced on , Forsythe's out and
marked on Burg's single to left.
Smith's single, Irelan's sacrifice,
Thompson's single and Forsythe's
drive through the box scored two in
the seventh.
Three One-Banded Catches.
Currie and Barham did the hurlitfg
for Omaha. Both pitched nice ball.
Shag Thompson made three one
handed catches in center. One was a
'spear of a line drive by McHenry.
On the other two Shag misjudged
them in the sun and had to make
them one-handed. '
Hal Brokaw was shifted to first base
yesterday. It was discovered he used
to play (hat bag before he became an
outfielder, so Smith was placed in his
old position in left and Brokaw put
on first. He played a good fielding
game and made two solid hits. Rourke
and Krug expect him to prove a" win
ner at first cushion.
The Rourkes play their next game
Saturday, when Des Moines conies for
a two-game series. Score:

Both Pete Kilduff and Brtvie
Krueger have earned jobs wh the
These are the tidings Pa Rourke
brought back to Omaha yesterday
from Kansas City, where Saturday
and Sunday he had a conference with
John McGraw.
"McGraw is crazy over Kilduff,";
Pa said. "He declares Pete i the
best-looking prospect he's seen in
years. He likes Krueger, too, and!
says he will keep both men."
Omaha fans suspected McGraw
would take to Kilduff., Pete is a
scrappy youngster of just the type
McGraw likes. It was figured Krueger
might be sent back, because McGraw
has three Veteran catchers in Mc
Carthy, Rairden and Gibson, but
Muggsy has decided to use Gibson
only as a coach and will not play him
at all.
McGraw alto promised Rourke a
pucner. just, wno we Hurler win

said be would send a man who will

Liner St, Louis Has Many Narrow
Escapes From Sub seas and Mines
New York, April ?. Running safely
through the dangers of the German
submarine blockade of. Great Britain
and without sighting a. periscope
either oti the outward or homewaid
journey, the American mail and pas
senger liner St. Louis arrived at its
home dock today,. The St. Louis was
the first American' passenger boat to
be armed and travel through the dan
ger zone around the British isles since
Germany's declaration of : January 31
and it was well armed for the trip
The homeward vogage was a stormy
one. A hundred miles off , the coast
of Ireland, a gale threatened the de
struction of the life boats which, bad
been partly lowered, and it -became
necessary to lie to for two hours while
they were made secure. There was
an anxious time, as the stop was made
directly in the normal path of tier
man submarines returning to their
home base. -
Now that the American ship has
completed its memorable voyage, it
is possible to tell how good luck prob
ably saved her from destruction.
There appears no room for doubt
that the German admiralty knew of
its departure and took steps to de
stroy it. The British" patrol, fleet
knew this, and so did those in com
mand of the St. Louis before it was
far. into the war zone. Running at
full speed during the night, with the
coast of Ireland and its submarine-infested
waters in the distance, "S. O.
S." calls of ships in distress came to
the watchful wireless operator of the
St. Louis.
A ship had been torpedoed about
seventy-five miles ahead of the St.
Louis and directly in its path. Soon
another call for help showed that
another steamer had met the same
fate a hundred miles south, while a
Austrian Ships in
United States Ports
Seized by Officials
New York, April 9 The Austrian
steamships Martha Washington and
Himalaya, self-detained in port here,
were today seized by the customs au
thorities: ,
Philadelphia, April 9. The collec
tor of the port of Philadelphia today
took physical possession of the Aus
trian steamer Franconia.
Boston, Mass.', April 9. The Aus
trian steamer Erny, war-bound here,
was seized today by port officials after
announcement from Washington that
Austria-Hungary had broken off dip
lomatic relations with the United
States." The Erny is the only Aus
trian refugee ship at this port.
Newport News, Va.,April 9. The
Austrian steamer Budapest, tied up
here since shortly after the outbreak
of the European war, was seized to
day by fedeVal officials.
New Orleans, La., April 9. Three
Austrian steamers, the Clara, Anna
and Teresa, were taken in charge by
federal authorities this afternoon.
Houston, April 9. Deputy mar-;
snals late this afternoon seized the
Austrian steamships Morowitz and
Campania. The . captains and crews
of the seized ships are to be taken to
immigration headquarters on Pelican
island, Galveston, for further orders
from the government. ;
A later investigation revealed that
the boilers of .both ships had been dis
abled, rendering these ships unfit for'
service without considerable repairs.
Under oath the two Teutonic cap
tains, Rakos of the Morowitz and
Lupis of the Campania, said they had
crippled the machinery on orders, but
would not say from whom the orders
had been received.
Cottet, Advances Over
Five Dollars a Bale
New York, April 9. One of the
most sensational advances in the cot
ton trade occurred at the market's
opening today. May contracts sold
up to $5.55 and July $7.80 a bale
above Thursday's closing prices.
The upturn was attributed principal
ly to the continued unfavorable
weather east of the Mississippi, with
the strength of the spot situation as
an added factor.
Here Is Prompt Relief From
That Tired,
That aMicti so many people just at
this season.
If you are easily fatigued, if you
find your appetit failing,- and art
gradually losing your energy and a
feeling of weakness and lassitude is
creeping over your entire body, do
not disregard nature's warning signal.
These symptoms mean that you are
about to succumb to the impurities
that have 'been accumulating in your
system all winter, clogging up your
blood supply and ' rendering you
totally unfit for the Important change
in seasons about to take place. .
It is highly important that you give
your system a general housecleaning,
that you purify your blood and
cleanse it of all impurities, so as to
third tokl of the destruction of a
British boat far to the westward out
of the German war zone and in the
path the St, Louis iad traveled.
The St. Louis rrived off the bar
of Marsey .before dawn. There was
no pilot boat at hand and the Amer
ican linear was compelled to steam out
side the bar where it was known a
German submarine had been work
ing th night before, until driven
away by patrol' boats. During this
time a neutral steamer which had
been in the harbor had attempted to
go to sea. It was caught dropping
mine inside the bar, eighty of them
being strewn about, it was reported.
Patrol -boats picked up or destroyed
all but two-of these.
The St. Louis crossed the bar and
went up the narrow channel about
10 o'clock in the morning. About an
hour later the British 'steamer Kel
vinhead crossed the bar, struck one
of the lost mine and sank. The St.
Louis could not have missed this
mine by more than twenty feet. How
it escaped destruction was a mystery
to the British officers and the amazed
Americans were congratulated when
they reached their docks.
It was the report around the Liv
erpool docks that' the vessel caught
strewing mines was a Swedish boat.
This was not confirmed by the Brit
ish. Nor is the fate of the officers
of the Swedish ship knowq. These
things are not given out or even
talked about by England's ; sailors.
The decision in their cases was not
long delayed.
It was the belief of the British that
the big guns aboard the St Louis
held no terrors for the German sub
marines. The fortune of war was on the side
of the Americans.
Minister Who Said

Portland, Me., April; 9.-The Rev.
Charles E. Joy, pastor of the First
Unitarian church, the oldest and one
of the richest ones in the country,
was burned in effigy in front of his
church by a party of unidentified men
last night after he had preached a
sermon in which he was repcrted as
saying in his opinion "the war in
which we serve is an unrighteous
war." '
During his sermon Dr. Joy it said
to have declared that neither by act
or word could he aid hit country in
what he believed was its wrong do
ing. ' '!
"I believe my country has failed in
th. moment of its. great opportunity,"
ha said. "We have taken the discred
ited weapons of warfare to defend
ourselves against an attack which has
never been directed against ls. From
this pulpit prayers shall ascend for
Germans and Americans alike. There
will be no orayer that victory may
crown the arms of America." In clos

Statesman Who Made Great
Reputation in Deal with Brit
ain k Dead at Boston.
Boston, Mass., April 9. Richard
Olney, secretary of state during Pres
ident Cleveland's administration, died
at his home here last night
Mr. Olney, who was 82 years old,
had been ill several weeks, although
it was not until yesterday that his
condition became serious. In an an
nouncement issued by the family to
day it stated that he died suddenly at
8:45 o'clock last night. Mrs. Olney
and their daughter, Mrs. George R.
Minor, of this city, were with him at
the end. Mr. Olney's other duagh
ter, Mrs. C. H. Abbott, is residing
temporarily in Paris.
Recently while unable to leave his
bed, Mr. Olnejr had displayed very
deep interest in the international
situation. It was said that he warmly
commended the action of the gov
ernment when members of his family
informed him on Friday that Presi
dent Wilson had signed a proclama
tion of war. ,. 1
His Greatest Triumph.
Richard Olney served successively
as attorney general and secretary of
state during the second administra
tion of President Cleveland, and al
though at the head of the State de
partment for the short period of one
year and nine months only, he won
reputation as a statesman of com
manding ability and force. His great
est triumph was his successful in
sistence upon arbitration- of the
boundary dispute between Great
Britain and Venezuela.
Imperturbably disregarding the
warnings that a rigid maintenance of
the Monroe doctrine might plunge
the United States into war with
Great Britain, v President Cleveland
and Secretary Olney carried out their
own ideas of diplomacy.
. Although Lord Salisbury at first
refused to submit to the American
demand, upon further representations
he receded from his attitude and
agreed to the arbitration of the entire
: Mr. Olney's firmness previously be
came familiar to the American public
through his action in the great Chi
cago railroad strike and subsequent
riots, when as attorney general he
upheld the right and duty of the gov
ernment to employ troops to crush
the disorder. .
In refutation of charges that this
attitude indicated his hostility to la
bor unions, Mr. Olney, in a special
brief filed in a federal court in Penn
sylvania in the case of a railroad
trainmen's strike, on the Reading rail
road, only five months after the end
of the Chicago strike, upheld the

right of labor to organize and urged
that all labor troubles should be arbi

Mr. Olney was born in Oxford,
Mass., in 1835. His father was a tex
tile manufacturer and banker. In
the years following his graduation
from the Harvard law school in 1K58
Mr. Olney won high distinction in his
profession and became an authority
on matters of probate, trust and cor
poration law. His sole appearance
in public office before going to Wash
ington was in 1875, when he served
one term in the Massachusetts house
of representatives. President Wilson
urged him to accept .appointment as
ambassador to Great , Britain and
later offered him the position of gov
ernor of the Federal Reserve board,
but in each instance Mr. QJney de
clined. His public utterances always com
manded thoughtful attention and at
tracted widespread comment. Long
after his retirement from his compar
atively brief career in public -office
Mr. Olney's counsels were eagerly
sought by members of the democratic
American Ship Seward
Sunk Without Warning
Washington, VPf'l 9. The Ameri
can steamer Seward was reported tor
pedoed and sunk without warning in
the Mediterranean by a German sub
marine, in a dispatch to the State de
partment today from Consul Gaulin

Raising of Irish Flags at

London, April 9. Some excitement
was caused on O'Donnell street in
