fern "WiiiH II.
A very Interesting gamn of ball rewarded
ilia small crowd who went out to the local |
I Kirk yesterday afternoon.
Although the homo team lost their playing
was masterly , and if they can but take today's
fjamo It will not be so bad.
jt Contributory to the loss of the game was
the very canary umpiring of Blogg. In fact
JJlogg had ovldnntly made up his Lillputlnn
mind tluvt Omaha should not have the game
under any circumstances. Homo of the boys
wanted to punch his head for his miserable
work of Tuesday , and ho adopted this plan of
Betting cvou with them.
This wns all nuts for Sum Morton , who sat
1 ack on tlio bench [ and smiled In such a
way that n party of German tourists
who wore In the grand stand mistook his open
inotith for the entrance to the Mammoth cave.
Anyway , one of them Inquired If that was
1 ho case , and ho almost swooned when In
formed that It was only Morton'o mouth !
As everybody knows when a team has the
umpire to fight u well as the opposing nlno
it requires the sharpest kind of work to win.
Omaha wasn't equal to the effort yesterday ,
nnd , and if Colonel Blogg is go'ng ' to ollleiato
ngnln thfs afternoon Captain Andrews might
us well wrap the gnmo up nicely and give it
to Mr. Morton in advance.
The game opened up in 11 lively way. and
the audience settled themselves for u lively
and stubborn contest.
Lengthy Mitchell , after several wide balls ,
pave Canavnn the one he wai waiting for and
lie sent it whizzing out into left. Walsh's out
from pitch to tlrst boosted him to second , nnd
on a bad throw by Dngdalo he trotted round
to third. Then ICcnrna Hew out to Foster ,
but Phalcn made a lilt and Jimmy scored.
On Cleveland's grounder Phalcn was forced
at second.
However , one run was better than none.
But Morton's men were not to be outdone ,
no Carroll , too , led off with a hit. Then Fos
ter went out from Can a van to Andrews , and
the Minneapolis captain stole second. Mln-
jieban then swatted the bull for three sacks ,
und Carroll ran home , where ho was quickly
followed by Minnchan on Kyu's single.
Jlonglo succumbed to Cannvtm. but O'Day
was given his base on balls. Ho was left ,
though , along with Hyn on Mitchell's out to
Vrqiiahart.
The score wits speedily tied.
Andrews stopped to the plate , nnd catching
the Ilrst ball pitched ] u. t right , ho sent it for
three busjs w.iy out near the carriage gate.
] f some 0110 could only have shoveled in an
other bucket of coal U'nlly would have got
liomo on it. As it was , however , ho crossed
the platen moment later on Willis'safe one.
Q'hen followed a singular sequence of plays.
Moran forced Willis ntsecond , Urqimhart did
n lilto service for Moran , and Cauavan did the
same for Urquahart.
But it was horse and. and the spectators
were fairly well satlslied.
Minneapolis' half was a heart searcher ,
mid what looked Immensely like a Imshel of
runs , resulted in a great big healthy goose
egg.
egg.And this ia how it was dono.
Old Farmer Miller took his base on four
wide ones. Dugdalo and Carroll followed
with singles , uuu the bases were full aud no
one out.
But Willis fooled Blogg. Ho did not allow
liim un opportunity to clinch the game for
Minneapolis Ju > t yet.
Foster fouled out to Clevelandand on Mln-
jiohun's hit to Willis , the farmer was caught
nt the plate , and then Uyim was tossed out at
lirst by Willis , also.
Now that was great , wasn't it !
The third was a blank for both teams.
Walsh was thrown out at Ilrst by O'Dny ,
Minnohan attended to Keanis , und Phulen
died at lirst. For the Minnies , Carroll and
O'Day hit safe , Mitchell struck out and O'Day
nnrt Miller were doubled up on the hitter's hit
to Walsh , who touched second and then
threw to Ilrst In less time than it takes you to
bay scat.
Sharp fielding all round , oh ?
Tim fourth was passed without a feature
worthy of note , but in .tho ilfth Omaha took
the lead.
After Moran had filed out to Minnchan Ur-
ininlmrt made a lucky three sucker to right ,
Bcorlng on a bad throw by Dngdulo , who
caught Uftj off his base.
Cunavun then followed with his second safe
hit , but was forced at second by Walsh.
Kcurns also made a hit , but ended the inning
by being thrown out at second.
No more scoring was done until the seventh
Inning , when four runs eumo in , and moro's
the pity , every one of them went to Minnea
polis' credit.
Urquahurt gave the calamity a good
deal of momentum by inufllng Dug-
tlulo's fly , then Carroll and Foster made three
buggers and it was Kitty bar the door , so fur
us Onmhuwus concerned.
Minnchan llniilly Hew out to Phnlcn , but
Ryu mid Ilengle cutno along with hits for two
bags each. O'Day then sent ono to ICearns ,
nnd on Mitchell's grounder Henglo was
caught at third.
But all the ginger had been incontinently
knocked out or the Black Sox , and they fell
easy victims in the eighth and ninth.
And thin loft the score just 0 to ! i in favor
of Blogg , nnd his aides from Minneapolis.
The sumo teams will try It again this after
noon. ,

Tlio Cost of Newspapers.
From a suffgostivo article on news
papers , by Eugene M. Camp , in the Cen
tury , is taken tlio following : What IH
the total annual cost to the wholesale
purchasers of news namely , the pub
lishers of tlio entire nows-produet of
the United Stated ? An answer to this
question would bo of interest , but it has
never been answered. For several years
I have been gathering information upon
which to base an estimate. Publishers
have uniformly extended mo every
courtesy ; nevertheless , I find it an ex
ceedingly diflicnlt quantity to urrivo at ,
and for my llguros 1 do not claim abso
lute accuracy. Publishers in this coun-
trv annually expend something like the
following sums for news :
For press despatches $ 1,820,000
For special despatches 2,250,000
For local news 12,500,000
Total $10,570,000 ,
The business of tlio Associated press ,
a mutual concern which pays nothing
for its newa and which serves its patrons
at approximate cost , amounts to 81,250-
000 per annum ; and that of the United
press , a stock corporation , is $450,000
per annum. Tlio former aims to provide
news about all important events , in
which work 8120,000 in telegraph tolls
is expanded ; while the latter endeavors ,
above all else , to provide accounts of
events occurring in the vicinity of the
respective papers served ,

A New Fanfjleil Poison.
WATEHU > O , la. , Juno 4. [ Special Telegram
toTim BKI : . ] A number of families in this
city have recently boon taken suddenly very
sick with symptoms of poisoning , followed
rapidly by stupor. There have boon no fatal
cases , though in several instances death was
narrowly escaped. The physicians ascribe
the sickness as a result of being poisoned
with tyrotosyciillno , the newly discovered
poison from decomposed milk. It is believed
that the recent hot weather caused the poison
to become active.

huviint hud a charming time among his
friends in the east. "While in Washington , "
ho said , "I visited Senator Stanford und
spent some time unftmgst my friends , listen
ing to tlio speeches in both houses und renew

New York , at the house of Mrs. Grunt , who
is an old friend of MM. Newman und myself ,
nnd always insists upon our visiting
her. I shall remain in Omaha until
Monday , when I take my departure

ence of the church of Japan. On Sunday I
shull prciich at the opening cf the lecture

arraugc the general conference of the church.
In the east the most intense
interest is manifested by both
clergy and laymen in the coming general
conference to bo held hero , und there is con-
sidcruble conjecture as to whether Omaha
Will be competent to entertain it. When I
told them of the generous prospect thev were
pleased , as many of them are very anxious to
see the west and are pleased with
the idea of coming here. The commis
sion who will bo hero this week
is taken from amongst the bait business ele
ment of tbo cast , men who have money to in
vest nnd I think it will be a good thing for
Omaha to have them here. The Sunday
school room at the now church will be ready
for services next Uuuilay and hereafter our
people will worship there.
I sail for Japan on the City
of Pekin on July 19 , and shall re
turn on the same steamer August 11.
This will give mo ample time , us I have no
sight-seeing to do , having been in Japan ba-
fore. Mrs. Newman will not accompany mo
