NEWS OF SPORTDOM TWIN CITIES TOO BIG Omaha .Afraid to Play Ball With Them Any More. i ■ ". -:.:':""« THREAT.TO DROP THE TWINS Millers • Come ' Heme : To-day to Play .' the Lust Eighteen Games of L". >! ': : the Season of 1901. Manager Rourke of the Omaha, member Of the Western league thinks that his town Is getting in too fast company when it tries to stay in the same-league as Minneapolis, St. Paul and Kansas City; and inspires a story to the effect that the twin cities may.be dropped from' the league and that George Tebeau will leave Kansas City for Denver where he is still in control. Rourke is no expansionist and still believes that last , year's circuit With Sioux City, Dcs Moines and Pueblo are fast enough for Omaha. It-is pos sible, however, that the Omaha fans are a little more progressive and ambitious and will resent Mr. Rourke's efforts to cut out- the big cities in the league. - Rourke Intimates that there is lack of harmony in the league, but as the "only new magnate is George Lennon of St, Paul it cannot be that expansion is the cause of the dissension.** Manager Hulen of the Colorado Springs team who has Just bought out his part ner, Tim Donahue, has asked the consent of the other members of the league to a transfer of the franchise to a Mr, Burns. Tho latter ;is a wealthy miner and is ac ceptable to the others. But one game was played in the West ern league yesterday, a postponed game at Denver. The opposing team was the millionaire band from Colorado Springs. It was badly • disorganized and Manager Hulen had to pick up two Denver men to fill out his nine.

GAME QUITE PLENTIFUL CHICKEN SEASON OPENS MONDAY Report- From South and "West Say the Country la Alive With Birds. The hunting season in-Minnesota and the Dakotas opens to-morrow and local sportsmen have been mak ing preparations for the past week for their annual outing with dog and gun. Reports at the . outfitting i stores show that chickens are • unusually plentiful this year, the dry weather of the early summer having been just what the young birds needed. The southern part' of the state is said to be fairly alive with the feathered game, and birds are reported to be numerous along the Great Northern and Northern Pacific lines between here and Morris. From the Dakotas comes the same story. Game Is plentiful everywhere, and sports men are looking forward to an unusually good season. ' \ A party made up of members of the Minneapolis club will leave for the west ern part of the state to-night and expect to be able to send enough chickens home to supply the guests of the club who will attend the dinner to be given to Vice President Roosevelt. The very fact that game is so plentiful has rather discouraged the formation of large hunting parties, and for the most part the local men will go out accom panied by only one or two friends.. They do not have to go far this year, and con sequently large parties will be the excep tion. A number of Chicago, sportsmen stopped in Minneapolis this morning on their way west. They had intended to go to Aber deen, but when informed that game was plenty in Minnesota, changed their minds and left for Morris, Minn. • From - there they expect to drive out a. distance of about seventy-five miles by wagon. They carry, their own tents and cooking uten sils, and each man. has his dog with him. The dogs were allowed to run about the Milwaukee depot this morning, and one of them was knocked down by a parsing Interurban car, but was not Injured. There were seven men in the party.

' London, Aug. 81.—The rumors of Lord Salisbury's retirement are due to the ex istence of agitation within • the premier's own family that he take the step in or-! der to preserve his health. His sons and daughters believe the strain of conduct ing the affairs of the empire Is hound to shorten his life. In this they have been opposed by several less closely related members of the Cecil family and almost all the leaders of the unionist party. The latter, so far as can be learned, are like ly to prevail, for the present at any rats, in their contention that relief from ths duties of premier, would "be a very, doubt ful benefit to Lord Salisbury's health which just now is not band,i considering his age. The unionists admit that the: selection of a successor to I Lord Salis bury perhaps would precipitate an internal struggle. Hence the extreme and, as some of the members of Lord Salisbury's fam ily- consider, almost inhuman pressure on the premier ■to retain . power, which for him has lost all attraction.
