At the meeting of the city council lust
night Mnyor Hurr said that ho had dis
covered that Mr. Liltlellcld , tlio Law and
Order Lcnguo polleeman , is not a clti/.cn
of Lincoln , nud he would have to'removo
him'from the force. As Mr. Lewis , the
attorney of the Longuo , was not present ,
however , the mayor said he would postpone -
pone tlio bouncing performance until the
next meeting , though ho hud intended to
UM ! the ollicial boot now. Mr. Littlolield
was unpointed ou the city police force last
winter at thu rctiucst of the Law ami
Order league1 , who felt that it was neces
sary to have a special olllcer to look after
violations of the law by gamblers , pros
titutes ami Niiloon men. L < or this ho drew
a regular salary of ! ? r > 5 monthly from the
city and a llkn amount from the league.
Llttlelleld bus bi-en very energetic in se
curing prosecutions , and it is hinted that
the mayor is under strong pressure to get
rid of him. If this intention is carried
out there will bo a summary pulling
down of the mayor's political castles ,
timl n sweeping away of his gubernato
rial aspirations , for thu law and order
people will use the hatchet with a re
vengeful force.
Mr. Patrick Kgan , president of the
Irish National league of America was in
terviewed to-day in regard to the dis
patches from Now York to the cdeol that
llio' leaders of the Irish National league
dcsiro to dictate to Parnoll and had
threatened to stop supplies from America
unless ho labored for the actual .separa
tion of Ireland from Kiigland. Mr. Kgan
denounced the entire statement as an un
mitigated , malicious falsehood , manu
factured by some designing knave for
the purpose of damaging the league and
deceiving Parnell. lie also expresses his
conviction that the alleged interview
between Parnoll and an agent of the ex
tremist parly from America was an entire
falsification. "I think"said , Mr. Kgan ,
"I understand the grounds on which the
rumor was ba.sett. A member of the ,
national executive committee of the
league. Mr. Armstrong of Georgia , who
was about to visit Ireland to sec his
relatives , was furnished witli' letters of
introduction to Mr. Parnell and other
members of the party. Mr. Armstrong
mot Mr. Parnell in Dublin and talked
with him of some matters of detail in
connection with league allairs , but tliure
was certainly nothing of the nature in
dicated in tlio cable rumors in the inter
view. It is simply another case of the
three black crows. "
Mr. Kgan , in reply to inquiries regard
ing the Parliamentary Aid association ,
said Mr .Byrne , of Cincinnati , organizer
and prime mover of tlio committee , was
u conceited , impudent , jealous , no
toriety-seeking man , the very counterpart
of a well known crank iu Irish politics ,
whom Mr. Parnell retired at tlio last
elections. Actuated entirely by motives
of personal jealousy and conceit , he
started the Parliamentary Aid associa
tion , and through various influences got
Eugene Kelly and some othur r o.pcotanlo
nnd wcii meaning irishmen
of Now York to join it.
Tiie association brought its labors
to a close early last month and adjourned
sine die. lint this did not suit Mr.
IJyrno , whoso real object was to try and
if'possible disrupt tlio national league ,
and ho has since tried to resuscitate the
committee ami start branches in other
cities , but without any success. Mr. Par-
neil did not , of course , know this when
bo sent his cable to Columbus a few days
ago. Mr. Kgan repeated his statement
that any man who trios to interfere with
the unity and harmony of the Irish
people at tlio present time
as Mr. Byrne is doing , or
anyone who tries to danuigo the league ,
as the author of the New York dispatches
has done , deserves to bo branded as a
traitor to Ireland. The following cables
have just boon exchanged between the
Hon. T. Harrington , M. P. , secretary of
the Irish National league , Dublin , and
President Egan of t lie American leagno :
To Egan. Lincoln , Neb. : The English
papers publish cables from America
saying that Egan ami Sullivan condemn
Parnell's peaceful policy anil threaten to

The examination of Charles Rogers
and James Ryan , the men charired witii
stealing sill : from the stores of Newman
and Herpolshelmor , has been sot for
Thursday next. Pending the examina
tion both men are confined iu the county
jail. Ryan has shaved oil'his moustache ,
and exchanged clothes with a follow
prisoner in tliQ hope , doubtless , of preventing -
venting identification by Newman's
clerks. The man who has thus assisted
Ryan is young \Viloox. who was arrested
two weolcs ago for robbing a granger of
$05 at the IJ , & M. depot. There Is but
little doubt that they all belong to the
same gang , and havuucun working every

How the Catcher's Mask Was Intro
Thu Tlrst One Mnc'o by Cnpt. Tlinycr
nnnd Worn l y Cntclicr TyitR
Two Xotctl Ilnrvnrtl Unit
Players of Itonu
Old ball plaj-ers in Omnha and lovers
of the sport , who Imvo watched the gnmo
for tlte last seven years , will remember
the first professional nlno nrgnni/cil in
this city In the fall of 19T9. It was a coed
nine , including the two Whltneys , Han
dle and Nibben. In two of the most im
portant games played the nine was roln-
forced by a clerk trom tlio II it. JI. head-
qtmrturs , I'rctl. Thayer , wlioo brilliant
: u ul tromenilons batting elicited
tumultons applanso from the audience.
Thnycr was the famous cajitaln of tlio
Harvard university nine of ' 70 and ' 77 ,
and is now brought Into prominence
through being the winner of iv heavy pat
ent suit , involving tlio invention of the
catcliurv masks. Thetlobo ( , of lloston ,
lulls the story as follows :
Xo catcher thinks of playing behind the
bat now without having his head encased
ina mask. In fact it woiild.bn almost sui
cidal to attempt to catch the rillo-sliot
pik'lung of the present day without wear-
nig this greatest invention in the base
ball world. Kvon the small boys who
play tliis game on the common and va
cant lots about the cily provide their
backstops with the regulation wire- cage
Tlio fact that tluiro are about I'-.OOO
catcher's ma.sks sold every year , shows
the universal u.so of this invention. It
lias been brought morn prominently be-
lore the base-ball world this week by the
decision in n patent ami which has'boen
won by Wright & Ditson , and Fred
Thayer , the inventor , who sued Al Spald-
jug , tlio president of llio Chicagoes , for
Comparatively few pconlo who arn in
terested in the national game to-day ,
know that professionals owe this neces
sary implement of warfare totnn ama
teur. It was conceived in the ingenious
brain of a Harvard college student , who
was one of the best players in his day ,
and probably as good a captain as tlio
University uino ever had. In the winter
of 'TOanu ' 77 the candidates for tne Har
vard nine were practising as usual in the
old round gynasium , anu Captain Fred
Thayer was traininc them. Harrold
Krnst , the greatest pitcher the Harvard
nine over had until Nichols made his debut -
but , was to do the pitching , and Jim
Tyng was expected to catch him. Al
though straight arm pitching was still in
vogue , Krnst had a remarkable swift de
livery , and after awhile Tyng informed
Capt-nn Thayer that he would not cateh
such pitching unless ho could have some
contrivance to protect his face. Tliayrr
knew that without Tyng the nine could
do nothing , because Ernst would bo use
less , Ho immediately wont to work on
tiie matter , and for awhile ho dreamed
of fencing masks and bent wires. Vari
ous e.xpernnccts were tried , and finally
he completed a rude but satisfactory
protection for Tyng' 's phvsiognamy. This
was accomplished in the spring of " 77 ,
and though Thayer had spoken of his
success to some of the professional play
ers in the city , uono of them saw tlio
mask until ono day shortly before the
season of 1877 opened.
"Ono day Fred Thayer came into the
Boston club room , which was on Eliot
street then , " pays UeorgQ Wright , "and
took out of a small bag what looked to us
like an iron bird cage. Ho said it was a
mask ho had invented for Tying to wear
when catching , and ho wanted us to try
it. My brother Harry and Harry Schacfer
wore there , and wo all put on the tiling
and found we could sec very well. Then
Schaefer put it on , and wo amused our
selves by throwing the ball at- his face ,
which the mask protected perfectly , i
saw at once that it was a good thing , and ,
as I was iu tlio base bail business , I made
arrangements with Thayer to introduce
it. "
"It cumbersome afl'air and
was a re
sembled n fencing mask , except that it
had the chin and forehead rests. The
patent , in fact , is on these rests , which
form tiie essential feature of the whole
thing/ '
"Iid the professional plaj'ors adopt the
mask at once ? "
"O , no. The tirst game iu which the
mask was soon was at Lynn , when the
Harvards played the club of that place
und Tyng wore the 'cage,1 as the specta
tors called it. A little later tiio Ilarvards
played the Hostons on our grounds , nnd
Tyng wore his mask. Tito spectator * )
were universally amused , and wanted
him to 'take oft' the muzzle , ' and 'try ' it
wjthout a bird cage. ' The Boston catcher
tried it but ho could not sec witli it , and
it was not used during the season of ' 77
liero in Boston. Some professionals
adopted it , but it was not until the no.xt
season , iu 1878 , that the Boston club be
gan to use it. The catchers who had
laughed at it saw its value , anil very soon
every backstop in the country wore a
mask. "
Tlio mask of to-day is very difl'eront
from the original one. When itfirstcamo
into use it was very largo , and the front
line was further away from the face than
at present. In front it was made like the
bow of a vessel , and so made that a ball
striking it on either sidn of tlio ridge
would glance on" .
All improvements in the mask have
boon to make it moro compact by bring
ing the front nearer the taoo. The mask
as made at present is heavier than the
original style , though smaller. It also
hits openings through which the catcner
can see , Before the mask came into use
there was many a broken nose among
the catchers , but now the only injury is a
slight cut from an occasional broken
wire ,

"I see that Tom Gallagher has given
up billiards and ono back to newspaper
work , " said a well-known sporting man
the other day. "Ho went to ( " "lilcngo and
knocked 'em all out nt billiards and made
n good pile. When that Hock Island ex
press robbery ami murder occurred Tom
was sent for by the News and asked to
work it tip forthbnii If any one can un
ravel the mystery Tbm's the man. He's
a born detective , and when he was on the
St. Louis Globc-bomocrat ho got ono of
the biggest scoops on record.
You remember what an excitement in
St. Louis Mary Churchill's ' disappcaranco
caused. She was a bright , lovable girl
and a general favorite in society. The
papers nail several columns of theories
every day to account for her disappear
ance. Every reporter in town was on the
lookout for the i-luo wbieh would load to
her diicoverv. Tom was then doing Po
lice for the Globe-Domocrat , ami onoilay
ho told McCullocli that he'd lind the
girl inside of two woeki , if the paper
would pay tlio expense of his tourney.
MeUulloeh , who had great confidence in
Gallagher , readily assented and gave
Tom the necessary money. Ho had
never seen the girl , but had an
excellent photograph of her. He
had a certain theory in re
gard to the case which turned out to
bo the right ono , but which ho never dir-
closed. Well , Tom worked around for a
few days ami linally traced the girl to
Indianapolis. He didn't dare work open
ly for fear tlio local papers would lind out
what ho was doing. I In searched the
town the insaim asylum , which seemed to
bo the most unlikely place , for the last.
Finally ho went out there and found that
a girl answering Miss Churchill's descrip
tion was working in the laundry. Slio
had gone home to spend the night with
a friend of hers also employed
in the laundry and Tom wont to the
house where ho found her. Under a
pledge of secrecy the girl conllded to him
the reason for leaving home , and after a
long conversation she was persuaded to
return to her parents in St. Louis. Tlio
story she confided to Tom that evening
has always remained sacred , and she and
Gallagher are the only parsons in the
world who know it. Yes , sir , if anybody
can brinir the train robbers to light , it is
old Tom Gdllaghor. "
That the Chinese in California do not
understand the real moaning of the boy
cott is shown in the following : A San

oil' tlio train in this city when a young fel
low accosted him with , "I say , John , but
were you driven out ot California by the
anti-Chinese men ? " "Not muchce , "
said John , "they no driveo any Chinese
out. Eberyblody onto there heap talk

shown by the following :

The sympathy inherent in every man ,
woman and child was beautifully illus
trated at the Uiiion Pacilic depot in this
city htjst Wednesday evening. Quito a
number of gcnticnion and ladles were
sitting in the waiting room laughing ,
talking and having a. pleasant time. Ono
of the railroad employes came in and to
another said , "A man was just run over
at the east end of the yards by the dum
my. " The people hoard it. Laughter
ceased ; talking also ; and each and every
one of thorn shoved plainly that they
wore affected by the horrible news. One
kind-hearted-looking old lady burst into
tears , and exclaimed , "too bad ; too bad. "
It is always the same. Sometimes they
do not show it as much as on the above
occasion , but they fool it ; it is human
nature , and therefore cannot bo
avoided. _
" 1 have scon a great many powerful
men in my day , " said Cily Jailor Picronet
the other day , "but I believe tlio most
thoroughly muscular man I over laid
eyes on was Jem Mace , the great slugger
who traveled through the country with
Slado a few years ago. Why , the biccp
muscles on each of his two arms looked
like a small mountain. I remember when
1 was making the run on llio Union Pa
cific from Cheyenne to Uawlins as con
ductor , Mace was ono of my passengers ,
I noticed that in the morning his wife
was in the habit of combing and brush
ing his hair for him. Ho would sit there
for all tlio world like a great big baby
until tlio little lady had smoothed his
disheveled locks into something like or
der. I grow curious about it , and asked
him why ho didn't comb his own hair.
Ho cheerfully volunteered an explana
tion. 'No , ' ho said , 'it is not because I
am too lazy to do the work myself. The
muscles on the fore part of my arm are
so Heavy that I Imd it impossible to bond
it milliciontl.y to reach tlio top or back of
my head. And so I make my wife useful
as well as ornamental. ' "
The young ladies of Cuming street-
