MAKES FANS PONDER Why This Sudden Collapse of the Local Team? SHOULD HAVE WON YESTERDAY ft. Paul . Defeated by Denver-Dei Molnei Bite* the Omaha Likewise. Were the millers playing ahead of their fait out west, or how does the manage ment, be it Beall or Glasscock, account for the loss of two out of three games to the Colorado Springs club, which was picked for tail end honors? From the official records the team could have won yesterday, but they only came near it. The springers made a few more hits, but any advantage in that direction must have been outweighed by the wildness of Pitch er Ream. He passed nine millers to first and passes ought to be almost as good as hits when Tim Donahue is behind the bat. A ball player who can't steal bases when "Bridget" is the bumper for the balls ought to take up come other profession. The millers did make quite a spurt in the last inning, but the- visitors had tak en *uch a lead that three runs would not •yen tie the store, much less win the game. The attendance was great, greater than It will be if the team does not show better paceß. The spectators encouraged the players most loyally while in the park, but the din of the kickers on the home ward journey is said to have thrown the cars of the track. The Minnehttha grounds were anything but Ideal for the players. The diamond is very rough and cleaa playing is impos sible. The argument that one side has no more advantage than another is a very poor one to the fans, who pay more money to see fast, clean work. The score: •Mpls.— r hp c j Col.

A remarkably fast and close game was played at Omaha yesterday, the junior saints and the kidnappers being in fine con dition. The saints won, for It was on the cards that all the home teams in the Western league should go down to de feat. Artie Herman held the Omahas down to three hits, but two of those came in the sixth inning in close Juxtaposition to a free trip to first base.

COLLEGE^ GAMES Minnesota Beats lowa. Minnesota university won from lowa uni versity at baseball last Saturday and won so easily that the hawkeyes seemed to be outclassed. Neither side played perfect ball, but the visitors' errors were stupid and costly. Williams played well at short for lowa, but the other iiifielders put up a jagged game, Struble, catcher, and Humes ton, second base, making two errors apiece. Metcalf and Plymat did the best work for Minnesota, Freeman for Minnesota and Hurst for lowa were about tied for pitch-. Ing honors. The- final score was 8 to 2 in favor of the Minnesotas.

K. C'S EASY LEAD It Is Running Away From Other W. L. Teams. DES MOINES TO GET THE "BOOBY" Minneapolis \eeda Better Base Run ning to Win the Pennant— Baaeball Talk. Up to the present time the Kansas City team has simply run away from the other teams in the Western league. Seemingly it is fully ub good a traveling team as any manager could desire, so good that Man ager Tebeau was not afraid to leave it and go off to watch other clubs perform. Still, if he is financially interested in the Denver and Colorado Springs clubs, as has been insinuated, he had as much right to be iv the twin cities last week as in Dcs Moines. The cowboys are his special pets and if he does not tempt the Kawtown fans to come to the games it is not because he does not offer a winning team for them to bet their money upon. Mr. Chase's team at Dcs Moines is in need of some kind of an overhauling, or it can claim the "booby prize" right away, if no changes are coming. It was expected that the Denver and Colorado Springs clubs would be steady losers when they etarted out on the road, but if the mil lionaires can have as good success every where as they did in Minneapolis, they will be headed for the top before the others will know what they are up to. The Minneapolis club needs several things to win the penannt, but especially better base running and better team work when at the bat. The batting is heavy enough to win games, but it is not always timely. The fielding is usually very satisfactory. AMATEUR BASEBALL \orllnve»teru Games. Specials to The Journal. Neche. N.

Here for six weeks athletes will rest, diet and exercise. Then they will be brought back to Lincoln to begin the hard work of the season. The camp will be located somewhere on either the Missouri or Platte rivers. Repre sentatives of the team are now seeking a location. High ground, an open meadow near by, shade around the camp and a good swimming place are the desirable features. Aspiring players will be taken into camp about July 15. Large tents will be used for sleeping and living rooms. An experienced chef will be hired. The players will be under the constant su pervision of Coach Booth and Dr. M. H. Everett who helped get the men in condition last year. Signaling, light line up work and punting will be the dally oc cupations. Long walka and other ath letic exercises will make up the daily rou tine. The party, which will include eigh teen candidates for positions on the team, will return to Lincoln about Sept. 21 and will immediately begin the severe work of the season. The second feature, one which the uni versity of Nebraska has never had, will be the training table. The diet of the football men will be rigorously guarded during the summer months at the camp, and the training table will be continued all through the season. For this purpose alone the alumni of the university have pledged the sum of $500 and $200 more will be raised to pay the camping ex-' penses. Hunting: Practice Active. Captain Westover has had a large squad of men out for punting practice every af ternoon for several weeks. Ringer, Ryan and Klngsbury are all showing up well. So great is the desire for a skilled punter that a prize has been offered for the man who shows the most skill in kicking. It is a neat silver cup and the contest for its possesssion will be held May 28. All the men who have attended spring practice may compete and the best punter will take the cup.

ED GILKEY, MANITO First of the Season's "Take" of Fish Stories. WHAT ED FOUND IN A PICKEREL A Marriage Certificate Lout by an Indian—A Prior Lake Romance. Special to The Journal. Prior Lake, Minn., May 20.—With the opening of the fishing season comes a re vival of interest in all things "fishy," and, of course, the man who tells fish stories of a high order finds himself oc cuping an exalted position in the eyes of his contemporaries. Such a man is "Ed" Gilkey, who has blossomed out with some new stories this spring—at least, they are new as far as the present genera tion is concerned; but it is whispered about among the older fishermen that Ed's so-called new stories were old when there were more Indians than summer guests, about Prior Lake. Notwithstanding, the old fellows find a keen delight in hearing the stories again. Consequently, Ed's rep utation as a story-teller is not in the least impaired. Ed's versatility is only equaled by his disdain for one who would sacrifice a good story for the sake of veracity. Ed is also noted as a hunter, trapper, fisherman, carpenter, farmer and woodcutter. Ed is fishing "long shore" nowadays, and a few days ago your correspondent found him fishing from an exposed rock, entirely surrounded by water, off Clark's point. The following conversation ensued: "How are they biting, Ed?" "Middlin' well, considerin' I ain't took a drink in a month." (According to Ed's philosophy, the only way to insure good fishing is to drink to every fish landed.) "Say, Ed," I said, as my boat grated against the rock; "you spin that yarn you've been telling about the snake skin, and I'll let you wet your whistle with some sure-'nough moonshine from eld Kentuck." "Well, mister, jes' let me sample that air moonshine —I ken tell it by the smell, all right—and I'll tell you 'bout the truest and strangest thing that ever was." A Bargain I» Struck. The bargain was struck and old Ed's eyes brightened wonderfully as he put a fresh shiner on his hook and contaminated the clear water with a stream of tobacco juice. "You've heard of that old Injun, John Bluestone, who used to be 'bout these parts, I reckon? Wa'al, old John and me used to do a pile of huntin', trappin" and flshin' together away back in the sixties, and I reckon we wuz 'bout as chummy as a white man and an Injun ever got. "We had a cabin out in the brush about a mile west of the old Injun reservation. One night—l disremember the month 'cept it wuz late fall —arter I had stowed the supper things away and wuz settin' afore the fire, sorter softenin' up on a full belly and a pipe of good terbac, old John comes in with a pack of bacon and flour on his back. He'd been into Shakopee, and wuz chuck full of firewater and fight. He rum maged around and got some grub; then he lit his pipe and laid down on his bunk. " 'Heap talk Chippewa dogs come Shako pee one moon more; much fight; maybe Sioux get licked, then Chippewa steal squaw; me got one sweetheart there. She Catholic. Guess me get married,' he says. "I didn't give a hang if the Injun did get married, so I says: 'Go ahead, John, jes' the thing yer want to do.' "Wa-al, the next mornin' he went back to Shakopee and I moved up to Fish lake, leavin' the cabin empty. " 'Bout a week arterwards, I wuz fishin' at the lower end of this lake and I caught a corkin' big pickerel. I toted him over to my Fish lake shack and cut him open, and darned if he didn't have a small sized prairie bull-snake inside of him — that's what I thought it wuz, anyway, un til I examined it and discovered that it wuz a snakeskin purse, jes' like old Blue stone had, and inside that air purse wuz one of these hitching certificates —yer know one of them papers a feller gits when he gets hitched to a gal. I made out the names, John Bluestone and Annie Iron Toe, and the next day I struck out fer the shanty and found John and his wife livin' together. "I shoved the paper under his nose, and I never seen an Injun get bo goldarned crazy. Annie, too, she spluttered around in Sioux and white folks' lingo, fit to kill. "As soon as they'd quieted down, old Bluestone he says: " 'Blackcoat marry me en Annie; much talk good medicine; me put paper me get from paleface chief in skin of snake and make big walk for tepee, take canoe cross lake, Annie she hold skin of snake, drop it in water. Heep big pickle swallow mighty quick; me no think get back. Ed Gilkey manito." —J. R. Hull.
