ST. JOSEPH WALLOPS
(Off Day for Marty 0' Toole,
Who'' Lets Drummer Boys
1 Pound Him All Over the
; ' Holland Lot. '
St. Joseph, Mo., June 14. (Special
Telegram.) Fain tfcut to League
park today expecting to see a real
pitchers' battle, when it was an
nounced that Babe Adams and Marty
O'Toole were to oppose one another.
The memory of that nitreteen-inning
ame was still fresh in their minds
and this led to the belief that it would
be a tight little old game when the
two stars of former days perhaps,
one should strike out the"former'
walked upon the field.
Instead, they saw almost a dupli
' cate of the game on the preceding
day, the score this time being almost
reversed. St. Joseph scoring twelve
runs, while the best the Rourkes
could do was six.
Day for Sluggers.
It was a batting test, not a pitch
ers' duel, which was witnessed, and
perhaps all the more enjoyable to the
fans because of that. The fan who
likes hitting and plenty of it surely
received full value. The weekday
crowd was a large one, attracted by
- the eminence of the gentlemen on
the mound and few left the park be
fore the game was finished. "
Omaha made four errors, and the
worst of it all is that Manager Marty
Krug will have no one to blame for
it today, no one to criticise, the
speedy little shortstop manager mak
ing two of the boots himself. It is a
rare thing when Krug does and still
more rare when he. does it two days
in succession, as he now has.
When Omaha made four runs in
the third inning the Drummer fans
settled back with a sigh confident
that the game was lost, but when the
Drummers came right back in their
.half of the lame inning and tied the
score, hope grew apace.
' Drummers Perk Up.
Then in. the fourth the Drummers
scored three more runs, which would
have been enough to win the game
'although the Rourkes threw an
other scar into the St. Joseph fans
1 in the fifth with two more runs, mak
ing their total for the game the half
dozen, which the score board reg
istered at the final.
In ; the seventh the Drummers
scored fonr runs after having made
one in the fifth and the game was
put on ice for all time.
The players of both teams fat
tened their batting averages through
out the game and every player on
the St. Joseph team, save only Babe
Adams, got at least one hit, and
Babe was robbed of a beautiful hit
by a splendid running catch by
Schick. ; , .

Sunday Base Ball Opponents
Fined for Sunday Fishing
Belvidere, Neb., June 14. (Special.)
Sundav base ball is not a violation
f law under conditions provided by
tne statute, but seining tor nsh is, so
two retired farmers at Belvidere
learned after Deputy State Game
Warden John Q. Holmes had made a
visit to sandy creek in this vicinity.
T. W. Wall and Charles Dado were
convicted of seining before Justice of
the Peace S. I. Tripp this week and
nned $.1 and nsh. iheir catch con
sisted of ten little carp that cost them
$50 and costs. The fishermen had
been strong opponents of Sunday
base ball, but were ignorant of the
game law against seining Ash. The
deputy went from Belvidere to
Hebron, where several hoop nets and
traps were found' In the Blue river.
Te Be Ce's and Armours to
Play Double Bill Sunday
The Te Be Ce's and Armours will
cross ats at Holmes Park Sunday in
a double-header, the first game start
ing promptly at 1:30. This battle
promises to be close and exciting as
the results will have great bearing up
on the finish in the Greater Omaha
league race and with both teams hav
ing perhaps the best slab artists it)
the league on their line-up a pitcher's
b-ttle is looked for. "Pepper Adams
with his famous ellusive "cokey" ball
will probable oppose "Andy" Graves
while Pete McGuire will hurl against
nanson, the Council Bluffs speed ball
king who has just joined the
Armours. Several new men will be
seen in action on both clubs and fol
lowers of the game prophecy some
exciting times before all is over.

The coppers got away to a flying
start by pounding Oliver, much-touled
fireman hurler, from the mound in the
first three innings. In these stanzas
Francl's crew scored eight runs and
led 8 to 2
Oliver, was derricked, however, and
Toe Vanous took up the mound duty.
Joe didn't allow many hits but his sup
port .was punx ana ne was sugntiy
wild. The firemen began to hit Hiatt
in the fourth and in the fifth they put
over six runs and took the lead, mak
ing the score 10 to 8.
Vanous' support wobbled woefully
in the sixth and the beat pounders
chalked up five tallies and once more
went into the lead. It was shortlived,
though, the firemen tied it up in their
half of the same stanza.
Neither aide scored in the seventh

BIG CROWD ATTENDS
LAST DAY'S RACES
Helen Chimes Shows Sterling
Form and Wins 2:11 Face,
Miss Sexetta Class of
. 2:16 Trotters.
By RUSSELL PHELPS.
Omaha the sports loving element,
which takes in all classes, from the
"200' 'to the "200,000," both men and
women, not to mention the children
yesterday allowed its enthusiasm for
clean-cut, metropolitan horse racing
to overshadow consideration of the
made-over axiom, "What is so raw
as a day in June," and turned out in
record-breaking numbers for an early
meeting to attend the Omaha Driving
club's program at the .Benson track.
It was the closing program of a
three days meeting, and the crowd,
which surged into the stands early
in the afternoon and remained till
dinner time, saw the stellar races of
Paramount from a standpoint of
real, exciting . horse racing, good
enough to thrill the fans on any
track in the United States, was the
2:11 pacing class, in which all the
starters but one were Nebraska speed
Shadeline Out of Field.
This race dished up a disappoint
ment for hundreds of fans, for Shade-
line, Judge Sears' sterling pacer,
didn't win. He paced two great heats,
but was forced to be content with

form and won in straight heats.
Roy Owens, handling the ribbons
on Helen Chimes, was "sitting chilly"
in the brush on the home stretch, both
times. The West Point stepper got
under the wire in each heat in 2:12)4.
Cecil Boy, a Shelton, Neb., gelding,
won second money, and Major Har

Beeiley, Beau Brummel of western
reinsmen, crowdd out a third in both
Judge Sears' game pacer was forced
to go the long mile in the face of a
stiff northeast wind and could not cut
down that handicap enough to grind
out better than fourth.
Miss Rexetta Wins Trot
The 2:15 trotting class event proved
duck soup for an Iowa mare, Miss
Rexetta, the favorite, who had little
trouble in capturing the second heat,
though was hotly pressed by Otto
F., a Denver animal, in the first heat,
until the latter "blew up" on the home
In the fist heat Otto F., was with
in seeing' distance of the wire, when
he broke and ran through the stretch.
The judges placed him fifth in the
heat for this erratic performance, but
he came back in 4he second heat and
followed Miss Rexetta home, grab
bing third money in the race.
Velma Todd, hailing ffom Geneva,
Neb., trotted like a Trojan and got
the sacond batch of coin, placing sec
ond in the first heat and third in
the next. Colonel Chitt.nden went a
good mile in the initial tilt and grab
ber third, but slowed down in
the second effort and had five horses
only one more in the r.inth. Some
unfortunate -fire laddie with two out
and thre on bases, fanned in the ninth
and eAded the game. His name is sup
pressed for charitable motives.
Mayor Dahlman was scheduled to
chuck tire first ball, but was late in ar
riving so the game started without
this cercmoy. Before the game Ma
jor Todd and Fourth Nebraska sol
diers conducted flag raising exercises.
Hiatt, hurler for the cops, pulled
the star play-of the game. He made
a beautiful steal of third base, but
neglected to notice that a copper run
ner was already occupying that Sta
tion, much to the glee of the firemen
rooters who started a five-miriute
chant of "Merkle, Merklc." i Hiatt al
so made a threw from first base to
second that was a beaut. It stopped
when it hit the bull sign in centerfleld.
Hiatt made up for it all, though, by
fanning that above-mentioned un
fortunate laddie, in the ninth.
George Armstrong made a fancy
one-nanaea stao ana eaten ot a drive
in the fourth. Two firemen- were on

He got fourth money, because of his
third in the first heat.
Fastest All the Way.
Both of Miss Rexetta's miles
2:15 J4 and 2:15 were clippers and she
showed she was the speediest horse
all the way through.
A "dark horse," owned ty the same
man, who brought Axtien, conquerer
of Heir Reaper on the previous day,
to Omaha, spilled the contents of the
dope bucket and grabbed the 2:22
pacing class in straight heats away
from a field of eleven starters.
It was "buggy riding" most of the
way for the winner, Samuel, the
property of Samuel Hartis of Ply
mouth, 111., and about the only com
petition he had was Empress Togo, a
Kearney, Neb,, mare with lots of
speed, but hardly in the Iillinois ani
mal's class yesterday.
De Sheril, the favorite, hailing from
California, wormed out a third in the
first heat, but finished sixth in the
next, getting third monev in the rare
- Only Two Starters.
The free-for-all pacine class nar
rowed down to a field of two starters,
Columbia Fire, ohe of the Cornhusker
state's first water stars, and Lillian
T., a 2:02, pacer, jowned by the E.
tteckwith estate ot Aurora, III.
It was Columbia Fire's n? rlav.
Both horses got away in fine style in
the first heat, but the son of Pactolus
went to pieces on the back stretch and
Lillian I. soon had the mile cinched.
The time for the first heat was slow
Columbia Fire seemingly couldn't
stay on the straek and the second
heat found him rroing good for a
while, only to "blow un again and
allow the' steady-going eastern ani
mal to romp home with the grapes.
Lillian T. went the second mile in
2:09f without straining herself.
