Rourke of (ha Omaha baaa all team says he la not greatly w HTled over George Teheau'a breaking In.o the Western league by scaring D. C. Packard out of hid holding at Denver. ' Rourke aays that Omaha Is Indlapena'ble to the success of bn.ee ball in Denver and Colorado Spring, and no matter whether the West ern league haa all cluba or eight or a doaen Rourke professes to fear nothing; more than a loaa of sleep Insofar' aa thla city and his own interests are concerned. "George Tebeau always hat been noted for his foxlness and Ma crafty maneuvers, and nothing- he can do will aurprlsa me much, for I know that Tebeau la not given to the love of his fellow creatures to any noticeable extent," said Pa Bill. Tebeau'e move at Denver Is the result of wen laid plans and a desire Tor revenge, for which he haa been thirsting for some moons, and the object of his hate la Pack ard. He haa dope nothing more than force Packard Into Opposing of his holdings at Denver. Tebeau wants to be a factor In Western league affairs and claims to have an Interest In the Kansas City franchise, He also set up the plalm that he had an In' terest tn the . Denver franchise, but the records of the Western league aecretary how that this Is merely a supposition on T beau's part. "You aee," aald Rourke, "these western towns cannot get along without Omaha. , They must have this town In order to make a success pf base hall further west, so there Is little ground for worry here except It be over the entrance of Tebeau Into Western league matters. lorry Day if Tebeaa Wlia, "Tebeau has enjoined us from meeting In an official capacity Until the courts decide whether he has a Tight to a voice In the deliberations of the Western league, and thla matter will be up for adjudication In the courts at Lincoln today. I have only this to say and that Is it will be a sorry for the Western league when Tebeau more gets his think tank Into opera' Hon, In connection with our affairs. "Relative to the six-club circuit, I cannot see that this question Is anything to worry over. Reports recently have been clrcu lated that Bloux City and Lincoln are about to back down and do not want membership In the Western league,' Nothing could be further "from the troth. Both towns have raised more money for base ball purposes than ever In their history, and the six club circuit If It Is to be such will be com posed of Omaha, Dee Moines, Bloux City, Lincoln, Denver and Colorado Springs. "Tea1, J have signed some new men a catcher, third baseman, shortstop and three pitchers but I do not care to announce their names at this time." Hitch la Tebeaa'a Plana. DENVER,- Jan. 20. Specta4 Telegram.) The officers of the Western league In Den Ter are In a muddled oondltloa and Oeorge Tebeau, who Worked so .ardently to gain oontrol from D. C Packard, may not be at the head of the aggregation that will rep resent thla oily this year. According to well authenticated rumors - Tebeau "angel," who Is aald to be no other than Ft O. Bono Is, declined at the last moment to hand over the requlJooWflltbr lucre, the reason being that Tebeau had mis represented matters to tilm during the ne gotiations with Packard. . It U aald that f 26,600 was Packard's figures, while Bon nie had banked on getting out of the deal for $30,000, . Tebeau denies that there baa been any ""hitch In the purchase, but he virtually admitted aa much today when he aaked Packard for an option of a day or two, assuring the latter that he would secure the necessary money within a day or two.
