Omaha May Secure
Next Base Bali Meet
Although Omaha lost out on the Na
tional Association of Professional IJase
Hall leagues convention for 1913, It is now
almost certain that the 1914 meeting will
come to Omaha. The word was conveyed
to base ball headquarters In a letter from
Bill Uourke, who has been attending the
convention In Milwaukee.
The Omaha representatives" were not
overly hopeful of securing the 1913 meet
ing when they left here. A partial prom
ise had been made to Columbus, but the
local tnen figured It was worth a try
anyhow. The convention of 1915 will go
to San Francisco, due to the Panama ex
nosltlon In thai city in 1916. But Omaha
j has been given an option on the meeting

Bird Dog Deteotives
Are Used to Catch
WITCHITA, Kan., Nov1. 15. To stop tho
smuggling of quail across tho Oklahoma
Kansas lino the use of bird dogs as de
tectives has beeu Inaugurated by the
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe. tho
Chicago, Itock Island & Pacific nnd tho
St. Louis & San Francisco railroads In
southern 'Kansas and northern Oklahoma.
Shipping quail from one stato to another
Is Illegal and trio railroads are held
responsible for game thus transported on
their lines by quail smugglers.
Trainmen have been unable to detect
suit 4cases filled with quail. Dogs are
bent through the coaches during the quail
season and) permitted to sniff the bag
gage. If there be quail the dog points
and the owner of the baggage must dis
close what It contains. At times the
canlno slouths have been taken In by a
cold fried chicken In the hunter's hamper,
but trainmen say contraband quail In
variably Is located. The plan Is said to
bo proving so successful this season that
the railways will make It permanent.
The Omaha Gun club will stage its an
nual Thanksgiving turkey shoot on the
afternoon of Thanksgiving at the club's
grounds. Just east of the Douglas street
bridge. Fifty of the best Missouri tur
keys have been purchased by the club

secured, and the biggest turkey shoot In
the. history of the club Is planned. There
will he both rlflo and shotgun contests.
The dlstances.ln the rifle contests will be
fifty yards and in the shotgun tests clay
birds will be shot at from different distances.

Omaha High to Play
Arrangements have been completed by
Athletic Director C. B. Reed of the
Omaha High school for a game on
Thanksgiving day at Bourk park with
tho Lano High school of Chicago.
Heretofore it has been the custom of
the local high school team to play with
one Chicago team on Thanksgiving day
as a climax for the season. Until a few
days ago It looked as If the Omaha team
would not secure a game, but everything
Is now completed.
The Chicago team tills year Is the
second best In the state, having only
been defeated by the Oak Park High
school, which Is a prep, school for Chi
cago university, Howover the Oak Park
teamwon by but a very small score and
It Is therefore certain that Omaha will
meet a classy team.
