DROP ONEAT LAST
Cooleysox Defeated by St. Joe
In Comedy of Errors. '
Slippery Field Made Good Play-
AN UP HILL GAME.
Topeka Players Do Well After
Crowd of Six Thousand Sees the
8t. Joseph, Mo., May SI. The Drum
mers finally took a game from. Topeka
when they defeated the -visitors here
Monday afternoon, 11 to 7. before a
crowd of over 6,000 people In a, contest
full of run a, hits and errors. -
This put St. Joe back In. first place
as Lincoln lost. On account of rain
the morning game was called oft and
the afternoon- game Was delayed to al
low the grounds to dry as much as pos
sible. The field was heavy and was
largely responsible for the many tnls
playa during the early innings. In the
latter part of the game both teams
tightened up. . Topeka's errors were
costly and It seemed everything broke
wrong for the Cooleysox.
Jackson was hit for two singles and
a double id the first inning which
brought in two runs, but after that
with good support he would probably
have gone along all right. Fugate, who
went in the box in the fourth, had bad
luck in handling bunts which seemed
to always go to a certain slippery spot
on the diamond. Mixing this up with
three hits and three errors gave St.
Joseph six runs In the fourth and fifth
innings. In the last three innings the
locals could get only one hit off Fugate
and in the eighth he fanned three men.
Jackson did the same thing in the
second inning, retiring the Drummers
with three strikeouts.
The Topeka team played a good up
hill game, but the lead was too great.
In the fourth inning the visitors made
five hits, but on account of unfortunate
base running scored only two runs. In
the fifth the team batted clear around,
Fugate starting the- inning with n
Mngli anl ending it with a strikeout.!
Jieilly and Kerns led in hitting, se
curing three each.
In the third inning McChesney hit to
Kahl, but in taking a bad bound the
ball caught him on the thumb of his
left hand, tearing the nail loose. Boles
took his place. Cy Landreth is still on
the sick list and may not be able to
play for several days. He was out to
the park in the afternoon, but not m I
uniform. Kunkel split the bone In his !
little finger in a game at Des Moines j
in fielding a bunt. The finger is swollen
badly and bothers him considerably. !

But Referee Calls the 20-Round Bout
London. May 31. "Packey" McFar-

the British lightweight champion.
fought a 20-round draw last night
before the National Sporting club.
The fight was for a purse of 6,500
and a side bet of 81,000. MeFarland
had much the better of the bout. He
led all the way. knocking his oppon
ent against the ropes repeatedly and
forcing the fight in every round.
The verdict of the referee was re
ceived with much hostility. Welch
was the favorite at the opening of
the contest at 7 to 4 but before the
fight was half over the sympathy of

Controversy Between Railroads
in Regard to Space Used.
TO BRING TEST CASES.
Department of Agriculture to
' See Ahout! Stock Room.
Other Items of General Interest
in Railroad World.
A controversy has arien between
some of the railroads of the country
nd the larger lire stock shippers in
regard to the space in the cars which
must be afforded animals in transit
from one state to another in order to
make unloading unnecessary and still
comply with the 2S-hour law .
This law provides that when the ani
mals are 'carried in . ears "ih which
they can and do have proper food, wa
ter, space and opportunity to rest"
they shall not be''req.Mired to be un
loaded. The department ot agriculture
has been appealed to by both railroads
and shippers, and; today the position
of the department is tentatively an
nounced as follows: -
If cars are not loaded bevond the
minimum weight fixed bv the tariffs.
the department will not, for the pres
ent, raise the question as to whether
sufficient space is provided for the ani
mals to rest; but railroad' which load
beyond the minimum and do not un
load for rest will have to take their
chances of prosecution in the courts.
It is the intention of the department
to institute a number of test cases and
secure rirtings from the federal courts
as to what space must be afforded. It
is claimed by the department that this
is the only way open, since Tio power
is given the secretary of agriculture by
the law to make rullnrrs and regula
tions regarding space to be afforded in
In all cases where live stock is not
unloaded en route "into properly
equipped pens for rest, water and feed
ing." the cars must be provided with
facilities for feeding and water in
transit, and live stock must, when so
fed and watered, receive proper feed
TOTALLY ELECTRIC LIGHTED.
New Burlington Train Said to Be One
of Best in Country.
Chicago, May 31. One of the most
extensive and costly improvements of
coach lighting ever undertaken will be
made effective by the Burlington route
on the 1st of June. On that date all
of Its through trains will be electric
lighted from locomotive headHght to
observation platform. The most effi
oient electric lighting system yet de
vised has been adopted namely, the
dynamo system. With this system there
is installed in the baggage car of each
train a high-power dynamo which sup
plies the current for the entire train.
Ordinarily, when the dynamo car is de
tached, there is a distinct dimming of
the lights, but under the dynamo sys
tem not only ia enough current gen
erated to light the train when it is in
motion or standing still, hut enough
surplus current is stored in each in
dividual car to light it brilliantly for
several hours without any direct cur
rent from the dynamo. This in Itself
is a big improvement over other systems
of car hghting.
To inaugurate this service it has been
necessary to rc-equip entirely electrical
ly 72 complete trains. This includes the
Burlington's through trains not only
to the cities of the middle west, but
ftlso to the Pacific coast. In addition
practically the entire passenger equip
ment of the railroad, including locomo
tives, baggage cars, mail cars, coaches,
chair cars, dining cars, sleeping cars
end observation cars, has also had to
be entirely re-equipped for electric
lighting, and at very large expense.
EXTEND TELEPHONE SYSTEM.
Frisco Substituting Receiver for the
The St. Louis & San Francisco rail
road, which has been active in the cam
paign among the railroad systems of
the country to supplant the use of the
telegraph with the telephone for train
dispatching, is now installing new tele
phone circuits over about 500 miles ot
its line. The circuits now in course of
construction extend from St. Louis to
Springfield, Mo., from Springfield to
Thayer. Mo., and from Amory, Miss., to
Birmingham, Ala. .
Trains on the Frisco are now being
dispatched by telephone between Kan
sas City, Mo., and Springfield on the
iKtrthem division, and on the Lebanon
division between Springfield and Mon
ett Mo., a total distance of about 246
miles. This part of the Frisco is sin

sas CSty and Fort Scott Is unusually
The fact that the telephone dispatch
ing circuit in this busy district has
proved satisfactory to the operating offi
cials through the service it has given
influenced their decision to extend this
form of dispatching over more terri
tory. The equipment which is now in ser
vice and that which is soon to be in
stalled consists of telephone aipparatus
and selectors purchased from the West

on which the commercial business is

AVAS ONCE AN OFFICE BOY.
New Katy Assistant General Manager
a Fort Scott Boy.
Fort Scott, Kan., Mav 31. There
has been sort of a shake-up in the
general offices of the Katy at St. Louis
and as a result there are men who
have been promoted to good positions
and some of the men are known here.
All of them have influencein the work
that goes on in this city and one of
them goes to Texas, where he will be
made assistant general manager of the
Texas branch of the M K. & T. He
is A. E. Bethard, who for some time
was assistant general manager at St.
Louis. To fill the vacancy caused by
this change there . has been a young
man promoted. One that has risen
from the ranks in every rense of the
word and who has come to fill an im
portant position in railroad circles.
That man is Arthur Durham, who is
known to a great many of the Katy
emplbyes here and who. worked, rwith
Sherman Knox at Sedalia just 12 years
ago. Sherman has Just heard of hjs
promotion and he is ticKiea. tie al
ways thought a great deal of the young
man and predicted something good for
Sherman Knox, day operator at the
Katy in this city, was working in Se
dalia during the year 1898 and he was
watching things; pretty carefully. He
became acquainted with a young man
named Arthur Durham, who was an
office boy and (was running errands
here and there. ' He became intimate
ly acquainted with him and. often
talked with him about most anything.
If the young man did not know some
thing that was brought up he went out
and looked it up. He rot to know 'his
business and kept on climbing. Dur

Sherman had about lost track of him,
but he has him placed now and can

MASY BLOCK SIGNAL SYSTEMS.
Total Mileage in United States at This
Under the direction of the interstate
commerce commission the block signal
and train control board bas compiled
and published a report regarding block
signals m use on railroads or tne unit
ed States on Jan. 1. 1910. The report
includes also a table showing ihe ex
tent of the nse of telephones in the
transmission of train orders. The total
length of road in the United States
operated under the block system on
Jan. 1, 1910, was 65.758 miles. Of this
mileage 14,237 was automatic and 51.
520 was manual. Durinjr 1909 there
was an increase of 2.047 miles In the

Ten roads which have not heretofore
reported the use of block signals ap
pears in this report, and 22 roads have
made notable changes in their block
signal installations. The telephone is
used to a greater or less extent for the
transmission of train orders on about
275 railroads; the aggregate mileage
operated by these companies is 131,014
