Five Games Forfeited by
Non-Appearance of Nines;
Good Fielding and Bat
ting Features.
Although five games two in the
American, two in the Booster and
one in the Inter-City leagues were
forfeited yesterday afternoon on ac
count of the opposing teams failing
to appear, nevertheless the fans and
followers of local amateur base ball
who attended the various games at
the municipal parks were well enter
tained, as a number of hard-fought
contests were played.
In the City league the McCaffrey
Motor Co., under the new manage
ment of Neil Smith, who succeeded
Horace Rosenblum, on account of
the latter being barred for two years
by the officials of the Municipal
Amateur Baseball association, won
a fast and snappy affair from the
Mickle Victrolas at Thirty-second
and Dewey avenue by a 4 to 3 score.
It was a pitchers' battle between
Ray Maxwell, of the motor crew,
and Johnny Hoffman of the "talking
machine" crowd, with honors slight
ly in favor of Maxwell. Although
both pitchers allowed but four hits,
Maxwell whiffed seven, while five of
the motor crew went via the strike
out route. The fielding of Pezdirtz,
Frank Mirasky and McCague were
the outstanding features. The Mc
Caffrey's would like to secure an
out-of-town game for July 4. Call
Manager Smith at McCaffrey Motor
Union Outfitters Strengthen Hold.
Manager Pascal and his Union
Outfitting crew, by winning a hard
fought contest by the score of 4 to
0 from the Willard Storage Battery,
strengthened their hold on first
place in the City league. Nufer, the
"iron man" for the Outfitters, again
pitched a great game allowing but
four hits, while the Outfitters se
cured a half dozen off Fratt. Only
one man of the storage crew
reached third base. The catching of
Guinotte, Potter at first and Stucker
at short, also were features. This
was Stucker's first appearance in a
Union Outfitting uniform and he
had the honor of accepting six
chances and secured two hits.
Two errors by third Baseman
Skomal and a walk in the eighth in
ning gave the Omaha Printing Co.
three runs, and robbed Pitcher
Zeikes Vilhume of the Bowen Fur
nitures of pitching a no-run, no-hit
contest. The Bowens won the af
fair by the score of 17 to 3. During
the nine frames that Wilhume was
on the mound the printers failed to
secure a hit. He whiffed IS batters
and had them at his mercy all
through the game. With the excep
tion of the two errors by Skomal.
the Bowens gave him brilliant sup
port. Each player of the Bowen
team made two or three clean drives.
Favorites Lose.
Although the Sample-Harts were
favorites in their game with the
Paxton-Vierlings, in the American
league, the iron-workers were at the
big end of a 7 to 3 score when the
battle was over. Beers, on the fir
ing line for the iron-workers, pitched
great ball and allowed but two bin
gles, the Hubatka brothers, namely
Manager Frank and Dode, being the
lucky men. He struck out 14 men.
Krejic and Scheef hurled for the
Sample-Harts and also pitched good
ball, allowing the Paxton-Vierlings
seven hits.
By this victory the Paxton's go
into second place, while the motor
crew is set back to third. The Riggs
Optical won a forfeit from the
American Railway Express and the
Universal Motor team did likewise
from the J. B. Roots.
The Trimble Brothers in the
Booster league by winning a for
feit game from the Maney Milling
team, on account of the latter fail
ing to appear, went intd first place
in the league, while the Ramblers,
who have held the lead practically
all season, lost to the World-Herald
team by a score of 12 to 1. The
World-Herald's victory puts them
into second, while the Ramblers
dropped to third, in a tie with the
Benson Merchants.
The Leavenworth Merchants also
won a forfeit from the Daily News.

Kid Graves Sees Both of Big .
Boys Work With Trainers
Sporting Editor of Bee Reserves His Decision on the
Winner Until He Sees More of Willard and
Dempsey in Action.
Toledo, June 29. (Special Tele
gram.) Well, here I am on the bat:
tie ground after some little delay in
Chicago, so that I dicr not reach
Toledo until this morning. Suppose
you will want to know all about
what is going on in Toledo.
I dropped into the Hotel Secor at
about 10 o'clock and the first man I
met that I knew was my esteemed
competitor, Sandy Griswold. A few
minutes later I ran into Charlie
Mathieson, who used to be my boss
on the New York Boxing Record.
Reminiscenses were in order, but
before Jess Willard blew in, Charlie
relieved himself of the opinion that
Willard was a cinch.
Bat Masterson figures the same
way, and for some time he has had
$500 posted with Tex Rickard to
bet on Jess. Otto Floto of Denver
took exception to Bat's opinion and
covered the money. The betting on
the bout is at evens when there is
any, but I am informed there is
little going on.
See Both Train.
The champion and challenger
have a unique system bf shaming
the pre-battle profits. Willard starts
his training at 2:30 and Dempsey be
gins shortly after 3:30. The bugs
watch Jess box and then hustle, over
to Dempsey's camp, a mile away
and see Jack perform.
The champion boxed three rounds
with Jack Hemple, two with Walter
Monahan, shadow boxed a round
and then stepped another with Mon
ahan. For the most part he stood
flat-footed and blocked nearly every
thing sent at' him, but he sprung a
surprise today, disproving the opin
ions that his legs were in bad shape.
He took Hemple and Monahan en
tirely by surprise by stepping away
This is the second consecutive time
that the News has forfeited its game,
last Sunday to the Ramblers being
the other occasion.
Highland Parks Win.
The Highland Park Pharmacy
added another victory to its credit
by taking the Harley-Davidson's to
a 12 to 7 trimming and went a few
notches higher in the percentage
column. Barton's pitchinjr for the
Beddeos, who allowed but five hits
and struck out 10, proved too much
for the Curo Mineral Springs, and
the former won by a 9 to 5 score.
The Hardings are back in second
place in the Inter-City league by
winning a forfeit from the John Day
Rubber Lo.
Six innings prove enough for the
Originals against the Beselins and
the former team lost by a 17 to 6
score. The Omaha Prints Juniors
took the McKenney Dentists into
camp by a 13 to 9 score and are
but a single game behind the Town
sends, who are leading the Gate City
league. The gunners also won, by
defeating the Hermansky Pharmacy,
y to 2. Joe Ort of the Townsends
sent 14 of the Pharmacy boys to
the bench via the strike-out route
and allowed but one hit, that in the
seventh, when Phil Lang singled
after Ort had walked three men.
Wallop in Near-Beer
Is Entirely Dependent
on Mind, Barkeep Says
Columbus, O. The former bar
tender stood back of the mahogaiiy
where he had mixed many a drink
from eggnog to Picardy rum high
balls, when a stranger floated in.
"Gimme a glass of that near beer
stuff," he said.
The barkeep turned the spigot
through which many barrels of beer
had run and set the amber colored
something on the bar.
. "Looks like beer," commented the
"Yep," said the bartender as he
wiped the glasses just as he used
to wipe them when it was beer.
"Got any kick at all?" asked the
"Well, my friend," said the for
mer dispenser of alcoholic bever
ages, "that depends a good bit on
the condition of your mind."
and sidestepping a number of times.
Not Too Heavy.
This wasn't the only surprise for
the sparring partners either. He
would go along rather easy for a
while and then tear loose a punch
that would lift Jack or Walter off
the floor a foot. He'd laugh like
a schoolboy when he did it, but for
the most, part was very business
like. He looks good and appears
to be carrying no more extra flesh
than a man of his size needs to
have to box 12 rounds.
At the Dempsey camp, Bill Tate
opened with the challenger, going
one round. Jamaica Kid stepped a
round and Jock Malone went one.
Then Tate came back and Jamaica
and Malone in order, making six
rounds in all, two with each. Jack
works tast and looks like a million
dollars. Malone makes him box
fast, but Dempsey seems to enjoy
it. Bill Tate is using his head and
feet both now, for he won't let the
challenger near him without falling
into a clinch.
Ready to Polish Off.
Picking the winner of this scrap
in advance is going to be anything
but a snap. The big boys will pol
ish off from now -"n, just so they
will be on edge by t Fourth.
I may have a selc tion for you
on the third, after I see how the
men go about the last days of
preparation. Many a battle has been
lost in those last few days because
of over-hearty eating or ill advice
from someone in authority.
,. I will visit the camps again to
morrow and also go out to the
arena and pick out my location.
Battling Levinsky is here for his
match with Billy Miske on the third
at Rossford arena. Basing my opin
ion on the dope and past perform
ances, I am picking the battler to
have an edge.

Battle Still on Over Referee
for Independence Day Bout
Between Lewis and
A gentleman from St. Louis is
said to be eager to wager $5,000
that Joe Stecher will not last an
hour with "Strangler" Lewis when
they face each other on the wrest
ling mat in the Auditorium July 4.
Of course the man from St. IUuis
may be right, but Nebraska follow
ers of the game can see no reason
why Stecher should lose at all. Of
course Lewis has perfected his head
lock, but experts fail to agree on its
James P. Sinnott of the New York
Mail declares that the agitation
against the headlock is mostly bunk
and that it is not the punishing hold
it seems.
Other close students of the game
say it is extremely difficult to get a
real headlock clamped on a first-
class wrestler. Few will dispute the
claim of Stecher to rank with the
elite on the map and his scissors
hold makes him a doubly danger
ous foe.
Lewis should give Steelier a hard
battle, but if he does not run away,
the Dodge county boy should carry
home the winner's end of the purse.
No decision has been reached on
a referee between the principals and
it appears that neither man will
weaken on his choice for the third
man. Stecher insists that a Ne
braska man be chosen while Lewis
is equally as emphatic for a man
from the outside.
The match is the best that has
been staged here this year. It may
explode the Lewis headlock bubble,
and it has definitely been agreed by
Gene Melady, promoter of the match
and manager of Champion Earl Cad
dock, that the winner shall have a
chance at the title.
The early advance sale of seats at
the Auditorium and downtown ho-
tels exceeds the sale of any matcH et"
ever held in Omaha. The Indica
tions are that every seat will be sold
when the doors open on the after
noon of our national birthday.
