Bleacheritei Manifest Dis
pleasure at Decision Arbiter
Makes on Trapped Fly
at St. Louis.
St. Louis, Mo., May 26. Angered
by a decision of Umpire Owens in
the second inning of today's game, a
portion of the crowd in the right field
bleachers surged upon the field in pro
test, Scott, first up for Boston in this in
ning, hit a low line drive to right,
which Jacobson fielded near the
ground. The umpire ruled the ball
was caught on the short bounce, but
the St. Louis players argued that it
had been caught before touching the
ground. The bleacher fans broke
. through gates and rushed toward
Owens. They were stopped, how
ever, before reaching the diamond.
- Police, players of both teams, the Bos
ton men being armed with bats, drove
. the crowd back. Play was resumed
after a delay of about ten minutes.
Boston won, 11 to 7, by hammering
four St. Louis pitchers.

Good Catches of Bass
Reported at Lake Manawa
Good catches of bass are being re
ported at Lake Manawa. Thursday,
within an hour, Mrs. At Foil, living
in a cottage at the lake, caught six
pounds, the largest weighing three
pounds. One other six-pound catch
was recorded and another bass weigh
ing over three pounds was exhibited.
It was feared fishing, for game fish
in the lake would be ruined by the
river getting into the lake this spring.
Fishermen deny this is a fact. Along
the shores they are catching good
strings of crappies and out in the lake,
fishing from boats near the rushes,
the bass are biting good. Worms
and minnows are being used for bait.

So Declares Pat Moran, as He
Expresses Confidence in
His Quintet of Pitch
New York, May 26. "If we get the
right kind of pitching we'll win the
pennant," said Patrick Moran, man
ager of the Phillies, a few days ago.
"The Giants are not invinicble. Neith
er are the Brooklyns. The Boston
Braves are perfectly harmless. But
the Phillies it', stronger than last
year, particularly in the box. Alex
ander, Rixey and Demaree were the
only dependable pitchers I had last
season, yet the Phillies were not
beaten out by the Brooklyns until
two days before the schedule ended
"Alexander and Rixey are sure to
repeat. In place of Demaree I have
Jim Lavender, who should pitch-with
better results than he did for the
Cubs. Mayer, who was of no value
because, of illness last seasonr-is in
rugged health and will win many
games. Oeschger, who is ripe after
two years' of seasoning, also looks
like a winning pitcher, tie snowed
all kinds of stuff when he smothered
the Braves the other day. Fittery is

INTO COURT MIXUP
Friends of Carl Stangel Want
Him to Get Writ of Mitti
mus Against Association
for Barring Him.,
By FRANK QUIGLEY.
It was rather wet for a bone dry
state last Sunday, but the Omaha am
ateur baseballists seemed to relish the
wet goods, as none of the mixes were
The amateur directors last week
turned a deaf ear to a plea for a re
hearing of Carl Stangel, barred from
base ball because he is alleged to be
holding a sweater belonging to the
Omaha Gas comoanv. The vote on
the rehearing was 6 to 5 in favor of
the Mangel contingent, but President
Isaacson refused to grant the rehear
ing on the grounds that a two-thirds
majority was necessary.
A threat to have Stangel get a writ
of mandamus against the Omaha
Amateur association was made by
Stangels' friends last week and Wil
liam Lvnch. president of the Nonpa-
icil club, offered to do the legal work
connected with such a move. So the
Omaha Amateur Base Ball associa
tion may play some of its base ball
in the courts.
A few other things happened at the
last convention of the directors. The
protested bout between the Tomaneks
and W-H Newsboys was ordered to
remain as played, a 5 to 4 victory for
the Newsboys. It was protested be
cause the adjudicator called the fuss
at the end of the seventh paragraph
because or rain.
A motion was introduced and
passed unanimously that the' Walnut
Hill Athletics and the Townsends
should cough up their forfeits and
dues before the next meeting of the
association or be suspended until the
defection was remedied. These two
teams are members of the American

isters, they were in a sadly depleted
condition. J. King and Clifford Cole
were entertaining sprained ankles.
Manager W. E. Wolfe owns a broken
arm, Carl Lutes was spiked, as a con
sequence an ugly wound is adorning
one of his shins. Selden Smith, their
curvester, tore a few muscles loose
in his back and Coke Carmody was
zipped in the attic with a fast one
and he was seeing stars instead of
base balls. And the latest bulletin
received says that Manager W. E.
Wolfe will have to unharness from
the managerial reins, according to his
physician, because of his nervous
temperament he will in a coupie of
weeks be a candidate for a sanitarium.
Carl Lutes is assigned to the task of
Dennison Pulls Neat Trick.
Although reported that Guy Hol
land, kinkcr for the Melady Maver
icks, has quit base ball, the wise boys
have pegged a slick maneuver by Dy
namo Dennison. Fans remember that
Dennison and Holland are business
partners as the proprietors of the
West Side pill dispensatory. Holland
will not sign up with any other team,
but if the Mavericks need himjt will
be soft for Dennison to release a man
and re-sign Holland. It it a two to
one shot that Holland will wiggle sev
eral games for the Melady Mavericks
Tie in Greater Omaha. . J
Either the Meladv Mavericks or the
Holmes White Sox will be wondering
nuw it uappcncu at six wnisiics mis
evening, but it is going to happen as
sure as the stars will shine. At the
present writing both of these teams
ire tied, with one game lost, for the
top story of the Greater Omaha
ieague. One or the other will have
to take the count. Both teams are in
tip top shape and an interesting de
bate is expected. Andrews will prob
ably kink 'em for the north end
tropue and Grant will dish out his
offerings for the southern lads. Con
testants for the greasy pig event will
have to register at the park before
3 p. m. The pig party will take place
at about 3:15 p. m. and a live wire
tussle is anticipated. The human that
catches the pig will win him for the
prize. Game called at 3:30 p. m.

Rourke park will be the scene of a
nifty battle this afternoon when the
Brandeis aggregation attempt to wal
lop a bunch of former professional il
luminations, the majority of which are
Uill eligible to land on a salaried pay
roll. Such stars as James Kane,
George Stone, P. Musser and Red
Stiles will work against the Brandeis.
Last week at the meeting of the
magnates of the Inter-City league an
industrious, peppery chap labeled Pat

for president, to fill the gap left open
by the departure of Blunt, who re

Nebraska Speed association loop,

course at the suburban racing plant
and horsemen predict state records
will go by the boards.
. Driving club officials are endeavor
ing to give the meeting a patriotic at
mosphere, a proposition having been
put to the Red Cross people to give
all profits derived from the races to
the Omaha chapter. Whether or not
it is to be accepted will be decided
Otis M. Smith, superintendent of
speed of the Driving club, said yes
terday that nearly 100 fast horses had
been named in the early closing
events. Between 150 and 200 horses,
including stars from some of the mid

money for which was donated by
business men of the town, giving the
plant six barns, equal to any in the
Start at Omaha.
Stables which will begin the sea
son's racing at the Omaha meeting
are arriving at Benson daily. Many
owners plan to pass up the Kear
ney and Aurora affairs and give their
favorites the first call at the Benson
meeting. Fred Jenkins, one of these,
hung up his blankets at the suburban
barns durjng the last week.
Edward Peterson, president of the
Omaha Driving club and owner of a
string of Grand and Great circuit
champions, bought another star last
week. He has added to his stables

latest acquisition will be prepared
here for a campaign down the Grand
circuit next year.
Creighton Nine's Tour of
West Called Off by Faculty
Athletic authorities at Creighton
called off the remaining games of
the varsity base ball schedule at a
meeting held last week. An extensive
trip through the west had been
planned, but on account of the war
situation and because of the fact that
members of the team have enlisted
for farm work and military service,
the faculty cancelled the games.
It was announced, however, that
the foot ball schedule, thoughest ever
attempted by the school on the hill,
will go through unless something un
forseen happens. The Kansas Aggies
were angling for a game in Omaha,
but Creighton's only open date is
November 24 and the Aggies could
offer only November 17. The official
schedule is as follows:
September 2S Cotner.
October 5 Peru.
October 11 Drake.
October 30 South Dakota at Sloui Palls.
October 17 Dubuque.
November 1 Wesleyan.
November 10 North Dakota.
November 17 Haakell.
November 24 Open.
