2 THE OMAHA DAILY BJDE. FKIDAY. APHIB .20 , 1889.
IT WAS NOT OMAHA'S ' DAY ,
On the Contrary , It Seemed to Bo
Largely St. Paul's.
MOST BRILLIANT GAME YET.
TVon By the Visitors , XVIm "Worked'
Hnra 'For Whftl Tlioy Got
ContcstB On Otlicr
r'
' Diamonds.
' Omnhn nml St. 1'nul.
Si. Pnul went out to the call park ycstcr-
dav afternoon with murder In her eye.
\Vhcn \ she came back In the j gloaming she
had Omahas curls dangling nt her bolt.
The White Legs wont Into the fray with
vim nnd the best Intentions in the world , but
the Apostles used the stick with good effect ,
and besides played n perfect fielding came.
The game was nn exciting ono to look nt
especially-from n St. Paul point of view.
* and the largo audience was very noisy nnd
very enthusiastic , but not half &o much so as
It would hnvo been had Omaha pulled out
ahead.
Some thought the Whlto Logs might hnvo
played bettor than they did , und thcro was
some very rotten strictly base ball parlance
judgment exercised.
But bo their play ns It was. they fought
hard and died game , nnd It Is bettor to cheer
than to Jeer thorn.
w- Defeat must como once Inn whllo , nnd
who cares If wo were accidentally licked by
the Apostolic gang ! That's the best gnmo
they'll get hero.
So thcro I
Sowder's pitching was no puzzle , mid ho
was hit hard and often.
Willis was very strong , but the Saints got
, his range nt the wrong time , or when It
counted hardest.
And fully fifteen hundred people had gone
cut tocheor thu Whlto Legs to victory.
Their cliecriue was nil in vain.
The ono grain of consolation offered them ,
however , was thai Captain Crooks said wo
P eliould have the next two.
So , you sec , there was n silver lining in
I1- yesterday's clouu Gorman silver , though.
For the first tlmo this season. Omaha fulled
to score in the first Inning , going out in one ,
two. three order.
The Apostles cracked the Ice , however ,
and after two men were out ut that.
It made the audience groan.
Hnwes struck out , and Little Willie Mains
retired on n grounder to first.
Then Willis did u very unwise thing.
Ho gave Mr. Overrated Plckott his base
en balls.
And right away afterwards Trcdway was
mean enough to step up to the plate and
mack the ball way out to deep left for a
homo run ,
CacUhng Carroll was thrown out by
Croons.
Bnt two runs were in.
Tbo nlr was growing cerulean.
Silence reigned.
The Whlto Legs wore visibly affected by
this unexpected turn of affairs , and they
stepped up In both the second and third iu-
iugs and carelessly drew two more line Easier
eggs to their swelling bosoms.
Exasperating as It was , Willis again In the
Saints' half of the third repeated his exploit
of the first that is , after two hands were
out. that benevolent streak struck him again
andho made Willie Mains , the largest child
in the world , his base on bulls.
The grand stand moaned aloud.
Plckott supplemented this good luck by a
little scratch , but down toward third , nnd
while Orovor was endeavoring to throw him
out at tlrst , Willie reached the next bag to
homo.
Trcdwny got his base on a fumble by relia
ble Jack Crooks , but Pickett was caught try
ing to malto third on the mistake.
That was a mistake all round.
Omaha players now came in to do or die.
They did.
Hnrr Strauss opened up with a single , and
the Joyous people shouted.
A moment later , however , they fairly split
their throats.
It was the President.
Ho whirled his club aloft , nnd the first
v ball Sowders let go of , ho lifted way out
Into loft center for three bags. Of course ,
the Parisian came homo with the first run.
Crooks and Andrews went out In quick
succession , nnd it looked us If Cleveland was
Pound to bo loft.
Mossott , however , came to the rescue. Ho
laced out n single , and old Buffalo scored.
"Scrappy .Tacit" was warmly upplnuded.
NaghVs out ended the inning , and Omaha
i wan but n run behind.
It was almost ono , two , three order on both
sides until thu eighth rolled round.
Then the band beg.in to piny again , and
everything was lovely and festive.
After C.inavan's out , Willis hit a earlier to
right. Hcrr Strauss followed with a. suc
cessful bunt. Then Cleveland got in another
r safe ona , and then that cherubim ,
fe Jncic Creoles , sent them all Hy
ing homo on ono of the most beauti
ful throo-baggers you over saw.
My I oh , rayl how the electrified people did
shout and each In a to.
But they changed their tune a note or two
when they discovered that the redoubtable
Jock had boon called out for not touching
nccouil.
That is an old , grny-halrcd , decrepit , pal
sied chestnut , Crooits , that dodgincr second ,
and you ought to have a big tin medal for
your cleverness. But you are forgivon.
You say Omaha shall have the next two.
Andrews nnd Mcssltt each followed with a
safe hit , but the Jig was up. Nuglo popped
up a foul which Toll Into Howes' capacious
mauleys.
Hut everybody was now comparatively'
jappy. Omaha was two runs in the load and
almost a sure winner.
Hut lacknday for the uncertainty of this
preat sport I The Saints came right back at
the homo players and before they hardly
knew what had happened their name was
Inud.
After Hawcs hud expired Mains nnd Pick
ett made hits , und Willis made ono , too ; ho
hit Trendway with the ball , nnd the bases
were occupied by three of tbo homllest num
yon over saw.
Cackling Carroll then happened along , and
with an old axe handle ho picked up coming
out to the grounds ho cleared the bases atone
ono fell swoop. It was only a single , how
ever , but ho made second ou the throw-In to
catch Plckott ut the pinto. Illloy struck out ,
butWorrlck sent Carroll homo on n. safe
Drive to right , Broughton How out to "VVaish.
But there were those four great big llfe-
lzod runs , and what nro you going to do
ubout It.
There Is no use crying over spilled milk.
The Whlto Logs made a desperate rally In
'tho ' ninth but what's the use telling ubout
ill They got ono run , b'ut that wui not
enough , and thus the struggle ended.
Too bad , wasn't it )

Nr.w YORK . Is nbund-
, April25.A man who -
nntly qualified by his connection with the
centennial celebration commlttco to speak
advisedly , told n reporter yesterday that
the trouble with the diplomatic corps
over invitations to the ball , Instead
of having boon settled satisfactorily , ns
was stated in n recent document issued
for publication by the entertainment com
mittee , had become so serious that the prin
cipal members of the corps had finally
and positively refused to como. "Not
n member of the diplomatic corps. " said ho ,
"will bo in attendance at the ball with the
possible exception of the Brazilian minister ,
Baron do Ita Jupa , or , in his absence ,
Senor Jose Augusta Ferrolra da Costa ,
secretary of legation. The trouble wttn the
diplomats originated in the omission by the
entertainment commlttco to inclose to the
foreign ministers invitations to the bull for
the ladles of their families as well as for
themselves. " '
The sixteen ladles who will dance In the
quadrille of honor nt the centennial ball , ac
cording to the Tribune , have at last been
determined upon , us follows : Mr * .
Benjamin Harrison , Mrs. Levi P.

The ArlcaiisiiH Billet Box Cases.
LITTLE ROCK , April 23. There was some
thing of a sensation in the federal court to
day , when the grand Jury marched into
court with C. G. Reid , a young attorney of
Morrillton , und announced that they
had asked him questions about
the Plummorvlllo 'ballot ' b'ox ' theft
which ho refused to answer. The question
was : "Did O. T. Bontly have..my conversa
tion with you Jn relation to , or did ho toll
you anything about , the theft of the
Plummervillo ballot box ? " In court , Held
ngalu refused to answer , nnd the Judge asked
him If ho nnd Bently sustained the relation
of client nnd attorney to each other.
This Reid refused to answer , nnd the judge
gave him until to-morrow morning to answer
one of the two questions. O. T. Bently is a
deputy , nnd , according to Taylor's confes
sion , was ono of the party who went from
Morrillton to Plummorvillo with the crowd
that stole the ballot box.

Scattered all over the broad prairies
of the northwest are hundreds 'of , s61f-
roliunt , true blue , young1 heroines , liv
ing in small , isolated ctibns } called
shacks , proving up claimst titorlng
homesteads and making money.
Four young ladles in Dakota last
year put tholr heads together nnd hit
upon un ingenious plun whereby they
could each secure n , claim and yet all
live comfortably together in one ITOUBO
and each bo upon her own laud. Instead
of building four shacks with ono room
each , they constructed ono shuck with
four rooms , but BO nicely planned that
each room of thu Bquuro ouilding wan
on a different quarter suction. Each
had her own bed in her own room and
in that way each claimant at night
slept upon her own land.
Society ladies of tbo city will wonder ,
not so much how these young lady set
tlers gut along without social privileges
as how they dared to live so fur away
from the doctors. Why , bless' you !
they uevor thought of being side. Doc
tors uro not half so much of a household
necessity as city people are in the habit
of thinking.
For all the ordinary ills of life the old
fashioned roots and liorlis remedies are
moro effective , and much flafcr in re
sults , than modern doctors' pills and
potions.
It is always safest to follow natural
methods in treating disease. The old
tlmo roots and herbs remedies , which
our good old log cabin grandmothers
know bo well how to prepare , were the
best medicines the world oyoiicnovr ,
bacuu&o they were nature's romodfos.
Tlo ( modern world needs them. In
Warner's Log Cabin remedies , and
especially such as Warner's Lo ? Cabin
Sarsapanlla and Warner's Log Cabin
Cough and Consumption Remedy , the
people of to-day huvo an opportunity to
secure the healthy medicines which
our rugged nnuobtors used with such
splendid results.

Manipulating Kates.
Cmciao , April 05. la splto of strenuous
efforts to conceal the tacts It was ascertained
to-day that the St. Paul and Northwestern
wore the roads guilty of manipulating rates
on coal and colco from the east to Omaha ,
St. Joe and other western points.
J. W. Ellsworth , the coal merchant is the
shipper In whoso Interests the rates wore so
manipulated as tocut the rate to htm 83
cents n ton. President Hughltt , of the
Northwestern , refused to answer any ques
tion on the subject
Of Ellsworth , one pi the moat prominent
merchants In Chicago said : "Ho has piled
up mi Immense fortune solely ou Ills ability
to work railroads into manipulating rates In
his favor. I doubt if for llvo years ; I have
laid down n ton of coal In Chicago that lias
not cost mo from 22 cents to $1 inoro than
Ellsworth pays. "
Railroad men scoff nt the Idea of any one
bo Ing punished for the manipulation. Tha
proof is absolute but it Is the general belief
that the parties will bo whitewashed.
A very caustic letter has Just been sent by
Chairman Blauchnrd to Freight Traitlo Man
ager Bird , of the St. Paul road. Mr. Bird
wrote Mr. Blnnchard that the St. Paul was
In recelut of n proposition to join n line north
of Milwaukee in through rates from Chicago
to points on the north Atlantic seaboard ,
special reference being made to expert busi
ness. The now line proposed to open n route
in connection with the Canadian Pacific and
the "Soo , " and offered the St. Paul far more
than the 10 per cent division of the through
ruto now allowed by Chicago cast-bound
roads. Mr. Bird added : "Wo hnvo not given
this proposition consideration further than to
rolled upon our relations with the lines ,
members of the Central trufllu association.
Two or more of those line Imvo joined hands
with the Canadian Paolflu and the 'Soo' in
terests on trafTIo to the northwest , which has
had a serious effect on our trnfllc.
"Wo consider that It is us legitimate for us
to accept the proposition recently made to us
ns for your lines to keep open the routes that
nro now working with the Canadian Pacific
and the 'Soo1 from middle and western states
points. "
To this. Chairman. Blauchard answered :
"If my information Is correct , this proposition
is made to your company by the Milwaukee
and northern , and is in clTcct a proposal to
take freight around three sides ot the square
against roads operating on the fourth and
short s'de. ' On the general subject of form
ing such circuitous lines , I bollevu that more
general hnrm has resulted from them in
broken rates and depleted revenues than
from any other cause. The proposal to
niako lower rules for this longer line , espec
ially in export trafllc , which Is the cheapest
carried to Boston , , is to permit your great
company to doinqnvlize , rather than upbuild.
Generally speaking , ' I believe It would in
jure the inturustisyou have In connection
with our roads , ifwo found you entering
the Chlcaco marttoUto deplete our legitimate
traffic and rates \ki an illegitinate goats-
horn route like this' ; The time has gene by ,
I had hoped , for Sniy such folly. There is
neither prollt nor sbnso in it. "
Northern t'nolllo Aff.i'r * .
Nn'w YOIIK , April 25. At a sueclal moot
ing of the Northern Pacific directors the
resolution ngreornR'to ' arbitration
im con
tract for the controgand harmonious opera
tions of the roads In the Pacific Northwest
was rescinded. TUiis ends the scheme to ob
tain a guarantee of u dividend
on Oregon SfjiVigation stock from
the 'Northern"Pacific jointly with
Union Pacific , and throws the burden of the
lease on the Union Pacific. A proposition to
operate the Wisconsin Central on a percent

They were not allowed to go through the

In ull departments of all the rouJs did all
they consistently could to nld the committee.
Tbo round houses were visited , our assistant
Rcncrnl secretary walking clear over to the

conclusive answer of nil Is the fact that

A Very , Very , Fishy Story Told By n
Denver Matt.
Dc.Nvnn , Cojo. , April 2o. ( Special Telegram -
gram to "Tun BF.E. ] F. A. Vnnhuson , n
wholesale dealer In tobacco at 520 Eight
eenth street , entered polloo headquarters
Into last night and said ho had boon knocked
uown find robbed of $16,000 on Stout street ,
opposite the high school , at S o'clock last
night. Mr. Vunhusen states that ho WAS
assaulted by two men. Ono struck him from
behind twloo , and knocked him senseless.
His coat was cut open , nnd when ho recov
ered two packages of money , containing re
spectively $10,000 nnd $5,000 , were gone.
Vmihuson U unable to glvo an a ecu rate de
scription of the men. Ho was struck baok
of the right car. nnd It Is believed with n
sand bag. Vanhusou's ' having $15,030 In
his possession was the result of n peculiar
concurrence of circumstances , nnd his
being assaulted demonstrates that ho had
been shadowed from the tlmu the money was
placed In his hands. Vanhuson and Mr.
A. M. Ghost , n real estate dealer , contem
plated nn investment In Albuquerque. They
intended leaving on last night's train for
that point. About 2 o'clock yesterday
afternoon they wont to the Gorman National
bank nnd drew 510,000. , They then drew
$5,000 inoro from the State National bank.
They went together to the oftleo of the express -
press company for the purpose of expressing
the money to Alburqucrquo. The express
company's rates for the cara of the money
Avcro too high and they decided
to deposit It again nnd get drafts.
Upon returning from the express
oflico they found the banks closed. VatihURon
was on his way homo with the money. The
two packages were In his Inside vast pochot ,
The two men came up behind him on Stout
street. As they approached ho stepped aside ,
and Immediately they struck htm on the back
of the head. The first blow did not stun him
completely , nnd ns ho fell against the fence
ho turned to light , nnd struck nt the man
nearest him. Ho then received another blow ,
which knocked him senseless. When ho re
vived ho was lying on the walk. His coat
and vest were both torn nnd rut nnd the
money was gono. Upon investigation to-day
It was found thut Vunhuson had told differ
ent pcrsonsiliffnrcnt stories. Mr. Wing , the
partner of Mr. Ghost , visited the banks to
day nnd discovered that his partner had not
drawn n cent from thorn.
Chief nf Police Brady says : "In conjunc
tion with detectives I made u close inspec
tion of the circumstances surrounding this
case. It certainly is very mysterious. When
Vnnhusen came to my ofllco lost night ho
told very conflicting stories. Ho said that
ho had been hold up for 15,000. nnd to prove
that ho had struggled ho showed mo scratches
on his hand , Then ho guvo a detailed ac
count of the affair , nnd'when ho had finished
failed utterly to account for the wounds on
his hands. Ho said thu pockets on his coat
had been rlppuddown. The pockets were torn
entirely out. VunHusen told mo that
ho did not ewe n dollar. I find that lie owes
several thousand dollars , and yesterday his
store was attached by his own brother for n
debt of $1,01)0. ) To-day n note which ho g.ivo
ninety days ago for $2iJiO ( fnila due. Ho
nlso told mo that ho drew $1,1)00 ) from the
State National bank yesterday , which ho in
tended to put with $3,100 ho had In his office
to make up thu $5,000 , as his share m n pro
posed land deal. On Investigation I lind
that ho did not draw a cent from the bank.
I visited the scene of the alleged
hold-up last night and found the books
which Vanhuson says he dropped In thu
stuigclo , laid carefully to ono side. The en
velopes out of which ho says the money was
taiion were very carefully und neatly torn ,
showing no indications of haste. "
Several mombcra of the deloclive force are
debating whether or not Vuuhuson was not
his own robber.
Of Interest to AVar Veterans.
WASHINGTON , April 25. War veterans en
titled to commutation for loss of their limbs
by disease or Injury , uro now filing their
claims in vast numbers. Notice is given that
all such claims can bo settled by letter to the
surgeon-general of the army without Incur-
ing nny expense to the claimant.
Commissioner of Pensions to-day rendered
n decision by which the pension of Henry
Dembitz will bo increased from 530to ? 72 per
mouth. The pensioner in this case has been
receiving a pension of fr30 per month
for what is known as Peregoff's amputation
of both foot. This amputation is the re
moval of the entire foot , with the exception
of the heel bono und Integuments of the
heel , which nro brought forward to cover
the ankle joint. The case was pre
sented to the commissioners to-day , and
ho hold that the legal distinction between
the loss of BO much of thu feet us was experi
enced in this case , and the total loss of the
leet , was u mere technical difference , nnd
that the claimant was entitled to u pension
of $72 per mouth. This decision will apply
to a number ot other cases of line nature.
