MID-WEST TOURNEY WILL DRAW Women's Tourney and City Chant plnn shlp Alao to Be Played Over Three Net, Latter Event la Auarwst. j Tennis men will have a busy season at the Omaha Field club this year, and the seven splendid clay courts will be kept busy all summer. The great Interest shown In the game by the old and new players alike has caused the tennis committee of the club to prepare for a large number of events. The women's tourney Is the first sched uled event. A woman's championship tournament will be held during the week of June 31 for the cup which Miss Faith Potter won last year. The cup must be won twice to secure ownership. Arthur Stori has given a beautiful trophy cup, for which the men will play a handicap tournament. This, which Is for club members only. will be competed for during June and July and the winners during the two months will play) off. It will be a handicap affair. All tennis players of the city will be In vited to take part in the city tennis tour nament which will be held as usual at the Field club, the date being about July 24. As In the past the competition will be for the champlonshlDof the city In both singles and doubles. The big tennis event of the summer in the west will be the Middle rest tourna ment, for which the Field cjub will act as host This classlo has become a real fix ture in the tennis of the country and play ers will come from all over the country to take part In the week's game on the city courts famous for the way they have been kept up. The committee is already work ing up Interest among outside players and present Indications are that the entry list will be the largest in the history of the eight years In which this tournament has been In' existence. After the mid-west tournament the dull players will have a tournament of their own to determine who is the best man at the club. Club championships will be awarded In both singles and doubles. This event probably will be August 28. HOODOO NUMBER IN THE RACE Cars Leave New York for Seattle Next Tuesday Morning;, NEW YORK, May 29. From present In dications a field of thirteen motor cars will roll away from this city on June 1 on the long run to Seattle for transcontinen tal automobile racing honors. Announce ment of the entries was made recently by the eastern representatives of the contest. the hoodoo number of nominations being declared. The cars that will make metor ng history In the long struggle are: Two Fords, entered by the Cordlner Motor com' pany; two Stearns, by Oscar Stolp and Charles Watson; a Simplex, by the Sim plex Automobile company; a Shawmut, by the Shawmut Motor company; two Thorn ases, by Ous Buse and E. R. Schmidt; a Renault, by W. O. Houoh; a Franklin, by S. S. Mapes; a Welch, by L, H. Perlman and a Garford, by W. H. Owen. The original entry list comprised four teen cars, but the Isotta-Fraschlnl nomina tton will be unavailable by June 1. C. M. Hamilton of the local agency stated last night that he will be unable to get an Iratta ready by the time of the contest, as his next delivery of machines will not be ahlDsed from Milan until this week. M' chlnea that may be nominated are a Zust, another Simplex, two Matheeona. a Benz and a White steamer. In event of the last named car being listed it will be entered by Charles Leathers of St. Louis. When the fact is considered that the ma chines wilf face a 4,000-mile trip that will put every fiber of the modern automobile to the teat the number of entries is needed large. Of late the wiseacres have been Is suing gloomy stories relative to the "on test, asserting that only four cars would be at the starting line on June 1. The pan hostility of the Manufacturers' Contest association toward the race has undoubt edly affected the entry list to seme extent, but Inasmuch as the nominations are well known to the motor car world It appears probable that the ocean-to-ocean race will be crowned with success.

HUGHES OFFERS NO 0RJECTI0N la Said to Be Satisfied wlth the foil, dnrt of Racing. NEW YORK, May 29. From a source of authority it Is learned that Governor Hughes is satisfied with the reports he has received In regard to the conduct of racing at Belmont park. It ia asserted at Albany that the reports circulated that Assistant Diatrict Attorney Elder had interviewed Governor Hughes on the question of pro cedure, when racing came under his Juris diction, had no foundation, that the gov ernor had not seen nor heard from the assistant district attorney. Those in close touch with Governor Hughes are pronounced In expressing the attitude of the governor regarding the out come of the Anew-Hart bill. They say the law Is there; that the courts have Inter preted tt, and so long as the associations and the public live up to the decisions of the courts nt further action will be taken. Any infraction of the law will be Imme diately looked into. This seems to mean that as the objectionable features of horse racing have been ellmlted, the sport will continue and presumably grow upon the new foundation that Is now being built. This is cheering news to those who ars much concerned In the welfare of the turf, and will do a great deal to bolster up the weakened who are loaded up with fear and trembling at the slightest rumor of pending evil. Certain matters the courts have decided to be permissible on the courses. It Is to be observed and to expose those who, for selfish reasons, endanger the sport. Rac ing has an opportunity to be built up again so that It will be lasting. The help of every one is needed to raise It to a stand ard that will keep It from further attack, either from the political battering ram or the reform element Top Row Casssdy, Belden, Thompson, Zlnran, Hartman, Olmstead.

He started twelve yards in the rear and finished a yard In front Fraser then gained some more on Funkhouser and gave Wood such a lead that the fleet-footed Mann co.Jd not overcome It. Omaha was crippled by the loss o: ifc Klnney, Thompson and Welrlck at the last minute. These students were not allowed to take part in the meet because they are behind In their studies.

May 29 Billy O'Hara o'i th Giants Is one of two athletes now play- Ing in the National league who were born under the Union Jack of England, Harry Smith, the Bostony catcher, being the other. The dainty little center fielder Is not t Briton, but a Canadian, Toronto being his home. In securing O'Hara Manager McOraw ob tained quality and not quantity. Wlllianf weighs only about 1M) pnundB, hut can hlf a bsll remarkable hard, and Is the fastest man on bases the New Tork club has haif since the days when George Browne wart at his best. O'Hara Is the classiest center; fielder seen In a white uniform at the Po8J grounds for many seasons.' Ha Judges ( fly ball quickly and accurately, and as soon as the bat rings against the shore he Is on the move if the hit goes In his di rection. A fielder who thus gets Into position quickly makes many catches appear easy, whereas a fly chaser less skilled has to make his sprint at the last moment, and either; misses the ball or makes a hard catch of It. O'Hara Is sure of himself, and he can also make those fancy catches. His one-handed capture of a short hit In the Chicago series was the fanciest hit ol fielding turned at the Polo grounds this season. O'Hara made an enviable record in thd Eastern league last season, stealing fifty three bases and hitting .22 in 143 gameC He Is T.ot a "phenom" or anying of thai sort, and his success Is due to hard worlt Three years ago he waa a member of th Toledo team In the American association, v and was purchased hy Cleveland, but was turned down by Manager Lajole the follow-, ing spring. He Is a well educated, quiet little fellow of clean habits and minds his own buMnesM. Withal, he Is aggressive Ir) a way, hut seldom runs afoul of the urn pi rex. O'Hara has a peculiar hatting position and does not pull away from a ball, lit hits many line drives. Jack Dunn, man ager of the Baltimore team, declares tha' O'Hara Is one of the moFt capable players that ever worked for him, and Is positive that the young man will be in the National Vague for many yearn.
