LOCAL HORSE TALK
WHY COL. OGI.EB.YY DOESN'T RACE
OX TUB SPEEDWAY'.
Everybody Ik Wonderlnc YV'hnt E. F.
Snlnncy's Walter E. Will Do
When Ilefltrrrected From the
Brnnh Racine; rtenlt.
E. F. Swlnney's well laid plans to carry off all
kinds of victories with his new purchate, Walter E.,
the ex-king of trotters, caused much comment among
local horsemen yesterdsy. Colonel James H. Ogle
bay la one of the best Informed horsemen In this
vicinity and he believes that Mr. Swinney villi sur
prise the talent unless Walter E. Is too fsr gone to
be resurrected, even as a roadster.
"Now. Swlnney's horse may be a wonder," said
Colonel Oglebay, at the Midland last night, "but he
knows better than to brush up against my horses.
I have horses of all ages, knlds and colors and I
think that I can beat anybody on the road."
Colonel Oglebay has spent thousands of dollars to
gratify his longing to possess tho Best horses in town
and as he is possibly the best amateur driver In the
city he should be able to pass many ot the fine ani
mals that are exhibited on the speedway every even
ing. The question Is frequently asked among the horse
men: "Why doesn't Colonel Oglebay win oa the
The question Is easily answered when It Is remem
bered that the colonel Is too wise to race. He drives
his speedy animals up and down Rl p?rmita his
friends to do the racing. The colonel mieiy eer Ms
his horses brush up against any others. Just v,hy
the colonel will not allow his horses to test their
steed is not known, but the colonel's most int'mate
friends say that he Is afraid that he might be beaten.
The colonel Indignantly denies this charge, and tays
that he races only when he feels like It.
Colonel Oglebay's best horse Is Direction, 2:0H.
The principal event at the opening meeting of the
Gentlemen's Driving Club will be a series of three
heats between Direction and C. C. Christie's Bob
Colonel Oglebay has a horse that he calls Joe
Davidson, that Is very speedy for short distances.
"Joe Davidson can beat anything In town." says
Colonel Oglebay, "but he Isn't worth a dollar." This
laconls tribute to the horse Is construed by horse
men to mean that Joe Davidson can beat anybody's
horse for a distance bf about one block.

appreciation of the royal anecdotes. Tho
prince, who is no fool, was quick to avail
himself of the first opportunity to show
that he understood the little game.
The occasion soon arrived. The prince
was telling a story and happened to pause

When the idea- of an Irish village was
first suggested to the Karnival Krewe it
was taken up as a splendid plan to give
added attractiveness to the Midway and it
was understood that local Irish-Americans
were to be allowed to have charge ot the
village In the street fair. When President
Eaton went East, however, he made ar
rangements for the village to fce conducted
by a professional showman and this move
on his part knocked the local projectors
A week ago about twenty of the leading
Irishmen of the city got together and de
cided to build an Irish village of their own,
to be separate and apart from the regular
street fair. The scheme was enthusiastic
ally backed by several capitalists and com
mittees were appointed on plans and ar
rangements. It was understood that the
Kansas Cityans were not to antagonize
the Karnival Krewe and in fact they
wished to work with them.
But the plan did not meet with the ap
proval of President Eaton, of the Karnival
Krewe, who called a mass meeting of some
of the members of the Marquette Club for
the other evening to take action oiy the
matter, presumably, as some of the out
siders say. to keep the projectors of the
Independent village from going on with
There were about fifteen present at the
mats meeting and reporters were rigorous
ly excluded. What they. did will ever re
main a mystery, so far as any authentic
Information can be had. but the next day
ono of those interested In tho independent
village called upon Mr. Eaton and learned
that the Krewe was opposed to the build
ing of any villace outside of the midway,
to which the Krewe was to charge 10
cents' admission. Mr. Eaton said, accord
ing to ihe report of the conversation, that
he had made a contract with the profes
sional showmen for the exclusive village
and the Krewe was pledged to protect him
in his monopoly, and that no one was to
be allowed to have a village anywhere In
Kansas City during carnival week without
the Krewe's permission, which in the pres
ent instance was withheld. It was to tha
Interest of tho Krewe to give the stranger
every opportunity to make money out of
carnival week, but Kansas City men who
are ambitious along this line must sub
side. Tho independent villagers were somewhat
nonplussed and as yet they haven't decid
ed whether they will antagonize the street
fair or drop their project. From the talk
of one of the independents yesterday, it
seems tiiat they were about equally divided
on the subiect.
Father Dalton has been engaged to make
the opening address at the Kansas City
village, and to a reporter for The Journal
last nifjht he said:
"I know nothing whatever about the
controversy. If the Irishmen are fighting
among themselves it is characteristically
Irlsb, and only proves their ability to re
produce the typical harmony and peace
that usually prevail in a representative

General Sherman' Indorsement on a

From the Washington Tost.
The handwriting of a good many of the
volunteer quartermasters Is so illegible
as to require a good deal of deciphering
skill on the part ot the clerks In the office
of the quartermaster general. An oldtlrae
clerk In tho quartermaster general's office
was speaking of this the other day, and It
reminded him of a story.
"The worst penmanship I ever saw," said
he, "was that of old General Melg3. His
writing was a cross between Arabic script
and a beginner's shorthand, and it put
gray hairs Into the head3 of a lot of men
who had to get sense out of It. AVhen Gen

he got hold of a paper one day with a long
Indorsement written by General Meigs on
tho back of It. Old Tccumsch screwed his
head around In all sorts of different ways
trying to make something out ot the In
dorsement. He turned it upside down, side
ways, held it at arm's length, pulled it close
to his eyes, and finally gave It up. Jabbing
a pen into an inkwell, he wrote beneath
General Meigs' indorsement the following:
"All of the above suggestions made by
Gcneral Meigs are approved, but damme

The Mlnea of Southwest Mlaaonrl.
To The Journal.
A few business men In JopIIn. who hare moner In
Tested In mines and other business Interests, hara
latelr become alarmed orer the many rumors put in
circulation through unreliable newspapers regarding
the development of the Arkansas mineral fields. A
tew weeks ago a Kansas Cltr paper published a state
ment to the effect that the Rockefellers had combined
with other Eastern capitalists to speedily develop th
Arkansas mineral lands br building railroads ami
rendering assistance to all prospectors who might
come Into these undeveloped fields. These rumors
have grown to such proportions that many ot the un
informed miners and buslnen firms ot the mining
regions ot Southwest Missouri have given so mucu
credence to these rumors that It has come to be ac
cepted as a solid fact. U tha truth waa known, how
ever, there Is not now. and It Is Improbable that
there will be for several years, a sufficient develop
ment of these fields to menace the prices ot ore la
the mining districts ot Southwest Missouri.
Here are the simple facta ot the matter aa they
are presented by two reliable experts, who accom
panied a party ot gentlemen to Tellvllle, Marlon
county. Ark: Among this party who visited these
fields were John F. Wise, a mining man with large
Interests In and about the JopIIn district, and E. N.
Perry, an expert mining man with twenty-five years'
experience In mining In the lead and sine districts ot
Southwest Missouri. "There la not." said Mr- Wise
and Mr. Perry, "one good mine In Marlon county.
Ark., at present- The Morning Star mine, twelve
miles from Tellvllle. turns out tour tons ot Jack and
silicate dally. There Is very little lead In this dis
trict. This Is the only producing mine In this dis
trict which can be called a mine. If there were any
other mines In the district we failed to find them.
As far as any prospecting was concerned, very llttie
has been done. It will uke many years to develop
these mineral lands, and 1 doubt If the output from
these fields wlfl ever be sufficient to attract serious
attention, or so Increase the output of lead, sine and
silicate as to lower the prices which now- prevail,
provided there shall he as great a demand for these
minerals aa no?r exists.
"If the Rockefellers own any land In this section.
If they are building a railroad. If they are assisting
prospectors to get a footing In thla territory, we
failed to discover It-" R. E. SKASE.
