Fast Game Scheduled at
Rdurke Park Sunday Be
tween Armours and
Star Professionals.
Unquestionably the best game of
base ball that Omaha ians have had
an opportunity to witness since the
closing the Western league season,
is billed for Rourke park next Sun
day. An ah star organization has
been assembled by Pat Ragan of
the Boston Nationals to battle with
the Armour team, winners of the
amateur clash last Sunday.
Ragan has agreed to appear on
the mound for his team. Although
not using the steam for which he
was noted while a member o.' the
Rourke clan he has amassed a weird
variety of curves and exceptional
control. He will have on the re
ceiving end of his team, Jones of
the Council Bluffs Longeways. This
peppery little catcher is the most
promising ball players on the local
sand lots.
No chances are being taken by
the newly organized combination
of a defeat and Manske of the Longe
ways and former Rourke will be
kept in the dugout as an emergency
Have Fast Infield.
On the infield will be seen such
Omaha favorites as Dennison on
first base, Claire on second, Senek
on third and Nye at short. Nye is
i former Rourke and now enlisted
in the navy. ,
; In the gardens will be seen Hazen
against the scoreboard, Krug in the
middle field and Lyck, a Western
leaguer from Soo City, will cavort
in the sun meadow. With this com
binations the packers are assured
of stiff fight from the ringing of
the gong.
', The Armours have the old fight
and pepper that lasts until the last
man i rtitr Thir rnnfir1inr liae
made them one of the most feared
teams in amateur circles and they
will never admit defeat until the
cores are counted.
The same team that has defended
the honor of the packing clan and
earned a host of admirers will bat
tle with the stars. After 'looking
over the opposition lineup the team
was unanimous for playing the reg
ular team and confident of suc
cess. Large Crowd Expected.
" Team work and the knowledge of
each man's playing characteristics
will be a wonderful advantage to the
amateur team. League will do the
heaving and Williams will appear
behind ttte plate. The balance of the
team will be the same huskies who
hammered their way to the top of
the amateur heap and maintained
two ties for the league honors.
With a continuance of the Indian
summer weather such as greeted the
players, last Sunday a record at
tendance seems inevitable. The
teams are in tiptop shape and the
interest in the amateur teams has
, beerf gradually increasing. John
Gonding will assist in managing the
atar9, which will assure fast playing
on the part of the professionals.
Former "Boxing Champ
is Sick and Also Broke
Chicago, Oct. 9. Battling Nel
son, former lightweight champion
of the world, is reported to be se
riously ill of influenza at a hospital
in this city. The "durable Dane"
said -that his finances had been de
pleted through his property being
''tied up."
"I would like a return of some
of the money I loaned in the days
of my prosperity," the fighter is
quoted as saying. "It may be un
believable, but the total amount I
now have outstanding in one way or
another will run close to $250,000."
College Ran Cancelled.
New York, Oct. 9. The intercol
legiate cross-country championship
run to have been held at Van Court
land park.Jhis city, November 23,
hat been cancelled. This action was
taken by the advisory board of the
1 C. A. A. A. A. after a canvass
of the leading colleges of the east.
At a majority of the institutions the
athletic associations have temporar
ily tuspended activities and the presi
dents of the colleges, in replying to
the communictions, stated that there
was little possibility of teams or in
dividual runners competing in the
ross-country race.
Cannot Win by Peace
Talk, Thinks Geddes
Washington, Oct. 9. Talk of
peace at this time is apt to paralyze
the energies of soldiers and impair
the usefulness and productivity of
munition workers. Sir Eric Geddes,
first lord of the British admiralty,
, said today, in discussing the Ger
man attempt to obtain an armis
tice. "We cannot win this war by talk
ing of peace," Sir Eric said. "To
get us all talking of peace is just
what Germany wants."
"I am not interested in how much
longer Germany can hold out. What
interests me is how great a whip
,ing we can give her. The allied
armies and allied navies will bring
peace. Let the kaiser talk while
Foch shoots."
Washington, Oct. 9. Senator
Chamberlain of Oregon, chairman
of the senate military committee,
expressed the opinion today that
President Wilson's inquiry in re
sponse to the German peace pro
posal was quite as effective as if he
had bluntly proposed unconditional
"Personally, I believe in uncondi
tional surrender, and the acceptance
by Germany and her allies of peace
terms dictated by the allies, and as
I construe the president's note, it is
a polite and diplomatic suggestion
of unconditional surrender and the
acceptance of these terms."
Dallas "Over Top."
Washington, Oct 9. The Dallas
district reports every county in the
drought-stricken district of west
Texas oversubscribed. Even Mexi
can laborer! are buying 'bonds;

Cash Corn Market Demoral
ized as Result of Big Break
in Chicago Futures;
Oats Prices Decline.
Omaha, October 9, 1918.
Receipts of grain today conntlnued light,
with 31 cara of wheat, 51 cars of corn, 19
cars of oats, 3 cars of rye and t cars of
barley. Out shipments totaled 108 cars,
with 6 cars of wheat, 64 cajj's of corn, 38
cars of oats, no rye and 14 cars of barley.
The spot market In corn was almost
completely demoralized aa a result of the
big drop again today In Chicago futures
In this cereal, which wera off 66c from
yesterday's close. A few offerings In the
sample grades constituted the bulk of the
sales made up to a late Hour, which
brought figures all the way from 8 12c
off. No. 3 yellow sold 6o lower and No.
t whlta was 7c off.
Oats followed corn, deolinlng 3c. Rye
was unchanged to lc off, and barley 3 4c

Fresh Military Surceases Bring About
Acuta Weakness In Corn Market.
Chclago, Oct. 9. Acute weaness which
developed In the corn market today came
entirely from news of fresh military suc
cesses against the Germans and from
bearish views of the diplomatic outlook.
After an extreme fall of 7 centa a bushel,
, price closed unsettled, SVtc to 5Ho net
lower, with November, $1 1414, to S1.15 V.
and December $1.13 to $1.14. Oats lost
2c to 3c, and provisions 40c to $1.
Sharp breaks In values, together with
general selling began as soon as the corn
market opened, and increased In violence
until near the end of the session. Then
profit taking by shorta led to somewhat
better rallies than those which at times
had briefly interrupted the main down
ward sweep of price. Throughout the
day, all factors except those relating to
the war failed wholly to get attention.
This was notably the case with the gov
ernment crop report and with word that
permits for the shipment of corn were be
ing Issued less freely, and that Instead
preferences waa given to oat.
Lowest prices reached were nearly
simultaneous with bearish report to the
attitude of Austria.
Liquidation and absence of demand was
much more evident In the oats market
than on any recent occasion.
Provisions dropped with corn, despite
buying ascribed to packers.
New York Coffee.
New Tork, Oct. 9. There were a few
July contracts for sale at the maximum
price at 9.86c In the market for coffee fu
tures here today which probably reflected
realizing on the slightly easier ruling of
the futures market at Santos. Otherwise,
however, there was no pressure and price
were well maintained at the full max
imum figure, with the marl.et opening
and closing net unchanged. December
ahorts showed little more anxiety to secure
cover, delivery being exchanged for
December at 40 points and for March at
10 points, while March wa exchanged for
September at 34 and 30 points, October,
8.50o; December, 8.80c; January, 8.96c;
March, 1.25c; May, 9.55c; July, 9.85c; Sep

tively few freeh offer were reported In the

a parity.
The official cables showed an advance of
121 rels In the Rio spot market as corn
fared with the last quotations. Santo
spots were not quoted, but futures were
225 to 475 reis lower. Brazilian port re
celpta, 44,000; Jundiahy receipts, 39,000.

Paris, Oct 9. General J. M. G.
Malleterre, the military critic for
the Temps, has written a letter from
the front paying that the German
armies are at the end of their
strength and that the German high

"An armistice, even with the ob
ligation to evacuate invaded terri

tinues, "would allow the German
command tc withdraw its armies in
security to a distance sufficient to
give time to reform the ranks in
preparation for the moment when
Berlin will denounce the allies' con
ditions as impossible." -

For prompt relief from Rheuma
tism, Neuralgia, or Lumbago, you
can depend on Sloan's Liniment. The
warning, soothing, counter-irritant
effect is the quickest way to over
come the inflammation, swelling, or
stiffness. A few drops go right to
the sore part, draw the blood from
the congested place and remove the
cause of the ache.
The great penetrating power of
Sloan's Liniment makes rubbing
needless. It is easier and cleaner to
use than plasters or poultices. It
does not stain the skin or clog the
pores. A bottle of Sloan's Liniment
is all you need for quick rest and re
lief from the pains of sprains,
bruises, backache, stiffneck, and
most forms of rheumatic twinges.
