William A. 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
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."

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
