FENCE AND THE
COMBAT IN GALE
Scoreboard Blows Down and
Infield Flies Drop Safely as
Jackson's Men Lose to
. ( Saints. '
The scoreboard, a couple pf sections
of the fence", several base hits, and the
ball game were blown away by, the
high 'wind at Rourke park yesterday.
The score ef the ball (tame -was 6 to
5. With little more judicious play
ing the Rourkts might have copped.
Except for one inning' it-, wai- a
pretty good ball game. That particu
lar inning was the fifth. It was little
less than a nightmare. , If we recall
correctly that is the inning during
.which the scoreboard passed .away.
The fans had narrow escapes. ,'
Bachant, Callahan and the wind
started the inning. Bachant hit a high
fly. -The wind began to toy with the
pill and Callahan began running in
circles. The ball landed several feet
from where Car happened to be while
riding the merry-go-round. Then
Luschen poked one to right. Again
the wind took, a hand and the ball
eluded Bashang's eager grasp. The
wind also began to bother Fuhr and
he walked Cooney, filling the bases.
Daniels popped up another high in
field fly. Callahan and the wind got
into a wrangle again and the wind
won. The ball dropped safely, Bachant
scored and the bases were stilt loaded.
Watson made the first real hit of the
round, a single to right. Luschen
arrtreri Crinnev alan ram, Vinm at.
though Bashang's throw tnight have
nailed him had Fuhr not blocked it.
But Fuhr blocked it two feet from the
plate. He turned and heaved the pill
at Pratt as though Larry was half a
mile away. Larry ducked and the pill
sailed to the grandstand. Darnels
. came home and Watson hiked to
third. That was all, but it was
Omaha scored one in the first on
Bashang's triple followed by Jack
sen's single; two in the fifth on hits
by Callahan, Bashang and Jackson a
couple of bases on balls; one in the
seventh on Fuhr't double, Bashang's
safe bunt and Jackson's sacrifice and
one in the eighth on a walk to Holder
man followed by Callahan's itriple.
The Rourkes had several chances to
win the game, but lacked the punch.

. OMAHA TUESDAY
Twilight base ball for Omaha.
W. A. Rourke, owner of the Om
aha Western league club, announced
yesterday that starting next Tuesday
ail wee day games in Omaha will
start at 6:30 in the evening. Satur
day and Sunday games will start at
the usual hour of 3:15.
The reason for the change is a
hope of bettering attendance at week
dajr games. Attendance at the games
this year has been pitifully small.
At the games thus far the attendance
has been less than 300 persons. The
grandstand and bleachers seem al
most deserted. One would imagine
a couple of village teams in a trolley
league were playing. - As a result the
club owners are losing money by the
1 . Rourke : hopes twilight ball will
make an improvement in the at
tendance figures. So today will be
your last chance to see a week day
game at the regular hour of 3:15 as
the Rourkes go on the road after to
Boxing Bout Barred.
Portland, 'Ore., May 15. Negotia
tions for a aix-rnunrl hour her h.
tween Fred Fulton, challenger of
Jess Willard, and Frank Farmer, a
Tacoma, Wash, heavyweight, were
abruptly , ended today when the
Fortland boxing commission refused
to sanction the match on the ground
that it would be one sided.
Notes of the Game
St. Joseph again today. Oam atarti at
Watson made a ripping on handed catch
of CaNahan's drive while on the dead run tn
the second Inning. 1
It looked aa though Omaha would tie the
score tn the eighth. Callahan waa on third
and only one waa eut But Pratt and Fuhr
Intereat In tha ball gams almost ceased
toward the latter part of the game when a
house nearby caught fire and begun to go
up In flames.
Big doings are promised for today. The
Krug Park band, accompanied by a couple
of nlghtengalea, will dispense instrumental
and vocal melodies tor the benefit ot the
Luschen caught Hanford off flrat In the
fourth and then Joined in the running down
process to put Charley out. He did so at
tha Itmnu tit Ma hnlaaw a.t.ll. - .
. . j " , ,1 vwiv (lull
second best In a clash with Charley's SDlkes A
Today will be your last chanc to sea the'J
nuurnca paaums on a weex aay at tha reg
ular hour of t:il. If you are an afternoon
customer you had better aee today's game.
Starting next Tuesday when the Rourkes
return from a brief road trip twilight ball
goea Into effect
Cooney pulled one on Callahann the fifth. J
After Callahan had watched the second fix.,
urop oesme mm ana waa therefore some
peevish, Cooney squatted on second base,
held out. his hand aupealingly and yaltai:
"VTbrow It to me." And Cal obligingly did.
Fortunately, no damage waa done.
The most thrilling moment ot the after
noon occurred when the huge scoreboard In
left field blew down with a, crash. Juat a
few momenta before a section of the fence
on Vinton atreet went down. For a time It
looked aa though the press coop would luc
cumb to the gale. It began . to wobble
perilously and two scribes with safety flrat
dispositions fled precipitously. Mike Mooney,
the demon telegraph operator, however, re
mained at nls lost.
