SMITH'S BAT WINS
FIRST FR0M LIES
Earl Makes Home Run, Two
Triples and a Double and
Omaha Captures Eighth
Straight Game, 7 to 4.
Pa Rourke's 1917 de luxe twenty
four cylinder machine gathered in its
c l g n n Sudani
game yesterday at
the expense of the
lowly Links from
Linktown, 7 to 4.
The Rourkes cap
tured the combat
largely because
tarl Stnith became
obsessed with a de
sire to ruin all the
fences surrounding
the park. Earl got
away to a great
start and might
mm
j ' '
E. smith. have succeeded in
his mission if the game could have
gone a couple of more innings.
All Earl did yesterday was manu
facture one home run, two triples and
one double in four times at the plate.
Rotten I
This bunch of hitting was responsi
ble for five of Omaha's seven tallies.
He knocked in three runs and scored
two himself.
Mr. Gardinier, who, judging from
his monicker, hails from some port
where the trenches are now located,
was the victim of Earl's terrible on
slaught. Fred Mitchell may say
Smithy is a punk.ball player, but the
odds are 8 to 5 it would take a power
ful lot of argument to convince Gardy
of the fact.
The Rourkes started after the game
in the first round. Burg walked and
Krug sacrificed. Lamb's throw on
Shag Thompson's grounder was bad
and Surg galloped home, while Shag
scooted to second. Smith's first triple
scored Shag.
Smithy led off the fourth with a
double, but his mates couldn't count
him.
Makes Second Triple.
Cecil Thompson and Burg walked
to start the fifth. Krug whiffed and
Shag Thompson forced Cecil, but
Smith walloped his second triple,
scoring Burg and Shag.
Smith opened the eighth by banging
the pill over the right field wall for a
home run. After Bradley died, Schick
singled, went to third on Brottem's
safety and scored on Woodruff's sac
rifice fly.
Link Hits Scattered.
The lowly Links nicked Cecil
Thompson for thirteen bingles. but
Cecil kept them scattered and no dam
age was done until the last two
frames, when the Rourkes let the
Links score four.
Butler's single, an infield out and
Griffin's hit scored one in the eighth.
Schmandt's hit. Woodruff's error,
three stolen bases, which tlie Rourkes
permitted without making a move to
stop them, a double by Tony Smith
and Butler's single counted three in
the ninth.
The Rourkes and Links clash again
today, starting at 3:15. It will be
ladies' day.
Gaspar Poorly Supported
And Des Moines Wins
Des Moines, la., May 17. Gaspar
received poor support today and in
addition was hit hard, while Kallio
pitch invincible ball and Des Moines
won easily, 8 to 2 in the first game
of the series. Score:

RUSH RIDICULES
HOMERULE MOVE
Omaha Irish Leader Declares
New Plan Proposed in Par
liament Will Not Prove
Satisfactory.
John Rush, well known Omaha ad
vocate of Irish home rule, branded as
"utterly preposterous" the plan of the
British prime minister for the intro
duction of a bill in Parliament for the
immediate application of the home
rule act in Ireland. The bill would
exclude the six counties of Ulster.
Dispatches from London stated that
such exclusion was to be subject to
reconsideration by Parliament at the
end of five years.
The plan also provides for a coun
cil of Ireland, to be composed of two
delegations, representing the excluded
area as well as the new Irish Parlia
ment. Irish Men Oppose Act.
"No Irishman with a drop of real
blood in his veins could ever be re
conciled to such an absurd half-way
measure," said Mr. Rush.
"What good would it do to have a
government with a hostile neighbor
at your door ready to shoot you
dt'wn ?
"Such a shoddy proposition will not
meet with the sympathy of the Irish
people.
"I do not think the imperial gov
ernment will get far with it.
"If you would search this country
from Maine to the Pacific coast I
do not think you could find an Irish
man who would have anything but
contempt for this plan for so-called
home rule as outlined by the British
government.
"It would be worse than none at
all with hostile Ulster excluded.
Ulstermen Not Satisfied.
"I am not an extremist, but this
latest plan of the British government
is impossible on the face of things.
I think every true Irishman will bear
me out in this contention."
Answer in Horn Damage
Suit is General Denial
Aurora, Neb., May 17. (Special.)
Answers have been filed in the big
damage suits against George Horn,
Charles Allen and Andrew Allen in
which the plaintiffs are Sarah Hare
of Grand Island and John W. Burk
of Phillips.
The three defendants live in Phil
lips and each of the plaintiffs has
sued for $15,000, alleging false arrest.
The answers are in the form of gen
eral denial. The petitions in these
cases alleged that these three defend
ants instigated and wrongfully pro
cured the arrest and imprisonment of
the two plaintiffs.
Miss Hare states in her petition
that she was employed as housekeep
er for Burk. The two plaintiffs were
placed under arrest by the village
marshal of Phillips. They were later
taken to Aurora and kept in the coun
ty jail for the night and then re
leased. American Association Will

Minneapolis, May 16. M. E. Can
tillon, president of the Minneapolis

cussing the local base ball situation

drop base ball for the season."
