THE NATIONAL) GAME.
The Lincoln team blew in from the
west to-day. They are all little dumpy
fellows who look as though they had
been swiped on the head with a hammer
in the mewing days of their youth and
had never recovered from the shock.
There are one or two exceptions to this
rule, but when the players first got off
the train the spectators couldn't see
them at all. Everybody was looking
high in the air for the classic features
of the gladiators who were burdened
with such high avorages in tho race,
and it was hard to come down so near
earth. Among the notables in the Lin
coln aggregation, or aggravation as tho
case may be, is Gragg, tho pitcher, who
used to be roasted in Rockford until he
would have to put his spikes in tho
ground and clinch 'em on the other side
to keep from sailing into tho bleachers
Ho will probably be treated 'with the
redpect his beauty deserves this trip,
however, as he is one of tho twirlers
who downed the Rockfords on the oc
casion of the visit of the home team to
tho headquarters of tho relief committee
in Nebrasky. Tho other players are
said to be good filling, and Rockford
should not have much difficulty in mak
ing three Bquare meals off them. Rock

The base ball field is the last place in
the world to look for religious Btrife,
says a brother in the Cincinnati
Enquirer. However, rumor has it that
the present trouble among the Boston
players is due to tho difference in
religious views. The fight between
Tommio McCarthy and Pitcher Stivetts
in the dining room of the Louisville
hotel is said to be incidental to a
religous discussion between some of
the players. For over two years there
has been trouble between the Boston
players on this score. Duffy, McCarthy,
and Tucker are arrayed against Stivetts,
Long and Lowe. Some of the others
have also taken sides. Staley and Cliff
Carroll when they were with the team
also had trouble. It is queer that ball
players can't get along together with
out quarreling about their difference in
faith. It is probably the first time in
the history of the game that religion
has caused a disruption in a base ball
An evening paper gives Manager
Ebright of the Lincolns, an undeserved
aoaBt for his so called clownish actions
in tho ball game Friday, Mr. Ebright
need have no fear that he did anything
to injure the sport in Rockford. No one
thinks he did either. He had a perfect
right to cut up all the monkey shines he
pleased. The same by a Rockford play
er would have been pronounced very
funny. Mr. Ebright won the opening
game here before a crowd of 2,500 peo
ple and he had a right to feel good to
stand on his head it he wished. His big
hit won the game and he made the
prettiest pickup of the day. Quincy
Gussie Alberts called down the wrath
of every lover of respectable ball playing
by his disreputable work in interfering
with Speer when he was catching a foul
fly yesterday. Don't do it again, Gussie.

not dirty work. Rockford Register Ga

The Lincoln Tennis Club has added
several new members during tho past
week and prospects are bright for a very
successful season. Geisthardt is rapidly
approaching championship form, whib
Haggard and Canticld are keeping the
"old man' very busy. There is a gen
eral regret that Fred Shepherd will not
enter the coming tournament. He is
one of the very strongest players. Will
Owen Jones is playing a very swift game
this season with remarkable improve
ment over his 94 play. He is young,
ambitious and full of life and should
mature into a very strong player.
The university of Nebraska tourn
ament has just ended, resulting in the
final victory of G. A. Loveland, who has
rapidly become one of the best players in
city. He will enter the state tourn
ament in June as will several other
university boys. Tennis is booming at
university, this year as never before and
with the new grounds anticipated by
them for another season their club
should take high rank among those of
the west. Messrs Stone and Troyer of
the university club are only playing in
their second season but are showing
much promise. The latter contested

Local lovers of lawn tennis are
awaiting with eager impatience the
state tournament in singles, to be held
on the grounds of the Lincoln tennis
club, 16th and G streets, commencing
June 10th and lasting over through the
12th. The different tennis centres of
the state have promised to send their
very best talent, and Omaha is expected
to furnish an unusually strong dele
gation. It is confidently expected the
tournament will bring out the very best
tennis ever played in Nebraska, and it
is very much hoped that local lovers of
the game, whether they are playing
this year or not, will lend the encourag
of their attendance. Ample seating
capacity will be provided and the
grounds put in first class condition.
The final match between the winner
and the present champion Roy Austin
oughtto test thecapacityofourgrounds.
The modest sum of ten cents will be
asked at the gate and this will go to
defray the expenses. The cordial co
operation of all local tennis clubs and
cf individual players is solicited.
