AMONG THE BOWLERS
INDIVIDUAL AXU TEAM STANDING
UP TO DATE.
First Series of tlie Bowline: Lenjrne
Schedale Ended Lart Week
Kansas Citys and Missouri
Tied for First Place.
lirt week eofled the first series ef the schedule of
the Kansas City Bowline League, and the nee chows
an Interesting; grouping of the teams. The champion
Kansas Cltya and the hustling Mlssourls are tied lor
rst place, each having lost one game, the Kansas
Citys to the Mlssourls and the Mlssourls to the
Acmes. When the Kansas City commenced the com
position of their team before the season opened. It
looked Ulce & walkaway for them. Every one of thein
had either held the high Individual, average at some
time during: the existence of the league or had been
the next nearest competitor, and tLe three leading
men were considered by competent judges more than a
match for any three men in the city. But only ccc
of them has come tip to hli ante-season form, and the
team as a whole has made no record worth special
notice. The Mlssourls started the season In & regular
hammer and tongs style, and defeated the Kansas
Citys very handily In the flrrt game. They then had
plain salllnr In the next three games, clearly out
classing their opponents, the Eagles. Exchanges and
Electrics, but It was noticed that there teemed to be
a diminution of the snap and rim that characterized
their game with the Kansas Citys. When they met
the enfeebled Acs.es last week they received a touca
of the Fplrit or W- The Mlssourls had to yield, and
their retention of first place now becomes In effect a
Question of again beating the Kansas Citys, a result
subject to grave doubt In- view of the fact that they
will be deprived of one of their strongest men when
Cheek leaves for a business trip East, which will
keep him out of the game for this coming scries.
The Eagles and Acmes are tied for third place, and
the coming series will probably furnish a good Item
of Interest in the progress of these teams. The
Acmes should have the better argument, for their
regular members are strong, capable boilers when In
form, and Captain Barse has the happy faculty of
Imbuing his men with that spirit of determination
that is so effective when employed In any direction.
The Eagles, from their present heights, can look
down on the level of last year's record when they
floundered around in the mire of defeat. Then they
were the weaklings, the Infants of the league and
could only put forth a feeble effort, until near the

close of the season. TLe first tesm to be damaged
br tbem was the Acmes, who bad held the lead Iron
the first game. Tbey put tbem to rout and the
defeat was the first of a series which landed the
Acmes In third place. Between seasons the blrdlcs
waxed strong and another year finds them with out
spread pinions and soaring in lolly amtuaes. uo
moulting season Is at hand, however, and they will

allfe, when they bested the Electrics last week In
a game Involving the solution of the problem, who
shall be last? Uut they will be bfcard from at all
times snd. It they do not win the championship, they
are capable of Interfering to a large extent with tb.
calculations of the other teams. They may be a
ort of free lance In the race, attacking with suc
cess, or being routed with ease, in the most unex
pected quarters, but their record as bowlers is more
than an average one, and the advance of the season
wlirdemonstrate their fitness against the others.
The Electrics organized this season with players
from last year's Telegraphers Lesgue, composed of
men from the Postal and Western Union offices, who
took to the game for the exercise. That league dla
not revive and the more ambitious of the members
Joined -the big league, through the Electric tesm.
They could make no showing whatever against the
other teams and a reorganization was deemed neces
sary and was effected by the withdrawal of four
and the substitution cf men who were considered able
to cut a large figure In the league. So far the
change has been of no benefit In advancing the team
to a better position, but the team's record bss been
much Improved and It will not continue to be an
unbroken series of detests tor them Tery long.
The old Telegraphers' league has been revived and
the ex-Electrics have joined It. It Is to be hoped
their disappointing experience In the big league
will not discourage any future desire on their part
' to try It again. Could they have reconciled their
differences and remained In the league they would
have emerged from tho contest at the end of the
season with a fund of experience that they can gain
-In no other way. The league would conserve the
best Interests It It would adhere to the Idea of en
couragement to embryo bowlers.
Charlie Clark, of the Ksnsaa City tesm, has a
strong lesd over all others for the high Individual
at erase, being 53 points ahead of his nearest com
petitor, and unless he goes lame In some particular
before the season Is over, thst position might Just
as well be considered pre-empted with no one to
rightfully dispute bis claim. Interest must then be
trsnsferred to the race for vecond place, which Is
now held by Barse, of the Acmes, who Is Just as
cspable of maintaining the position aa either of the
four men next to him who at present can be con
sidered his only competitors.
Wilson, the high man of last season, has greatly
dlscrpolnted his admirers so far, as be has not been
bowling up to his standard by any means. He seems
'o put little spirit Into his work and to be rsthei
careless as well. It his first ball was as perfect as
his second, he would have an excellent average.
Farley Is another strong player, who must be
nursing a grievance against the pins on account of
the obstinate way In which they drop for him. He
has had to face a great many difficult splits, but he
Is the veteran of the league and It Is a safe predic
tion thst his average will be raised above the MO
mark before the season Is over.
Lord, the former king, never comes on the alleys
except at club rolls and while he ought to be among
the leaders he Is occupying his present unsatisfactory
position solely from lack of practice.
Uackett has been very unfortunate also In splits,
having averaged over seven to a game. He Is far
below the figure that ought to designate his position
in the race.
Of the new men who have entered the tournament
roll this year, Lanlng has made the best showing and
occupies a sstlsfactory position. Voght leads him
by a good margin, but "Tony" bss made his ap
pearance before, having bowled a few games with the
Ilssourls when they were first organized.
Dunlop, who carries the Isst banner In the proces
sion. Is not only new to the lesgue, but to the
rune ss well, for this Is only his second season. Ha
it ambitious and if he gathers confidence with experi
' ence will make good progress at the game.
A noticeable feature of the Uble of Individual
averages Is the wide difference in the standing of the
first ten men. Between Clark and Allen, first and
t.nth. a difference of fifty-two pins average per
game. Two years ago the bowlers appeared In the
table of averages In gradual order of decline and
more than a dozen were over the S00 mark. Is
there a real decline fn the standard of bowling? It
Is very hard to answer the quertlon rightly. Per.
haps had the old Owl team remained In the league
four or five cf the members would have flgurtd among
the first ten. A partial excuse for the diminished
percentages of the bowlers can be offered In the fact
-that two games have been rolled by each team on
the Armory alleys, which are used for the first time
this vear hv the leaaue. With very few exceptions
these alleys were strange to the bowlers and the
balls hsd finger grips that were quite different to
the ones they had become familiar with on the
Brunswick. This difference necessitated a change
In the style of delivery of even such expert bowlers
as Farley and McMlnamln, and, in consequence,
neither of these men were Improved In their records
by the new alleys. Whatever Influenced to their
detriment was apt to become even more pronounced
In the case of more uncertain bowlers. The coming
aeries will serve to determine more exactly Just
.how much credence Is to be sttached to this theory.

NEW ORLEANS. Dec. S. The Palmetto handicap,
at a mlio and a sixteenth, vslued at 51.000. was th
event of the day's card. Duke of Mlddleburg was
favorite in the betting and in two or three strides
more would have won the prize. As it wss he
faltered In the few yarda and Eva Rice, who had
made most of the running, Issted Just long enough to
beat him out by a short neck. Lady Callahan, who
was figured to have a chance, was left at the post,
and Bennevllle, another likely candidate, was an
chored. J. Lucille and Colonel Cluke were the only
winning favorltea. The former Just managed to

MADISON. WIS.. Dec t. The Western football
championship goes to Chicago. Before at least 12,000
peopls the eleven of the University of Chicago to-day
defeated the University of Wisconsin team by a score
of 17 to 0 in a game that for desperate playing, for
clean, scientific football, has probably never been
equaled on a Western gridiron. No flukes marred the
victory of the sturdy Chicago players, and to-night
for the first time In years the Maroons can lay claim
to an undisputed title to the championFhip. it was a
game between a team which in offensive play was
perfect, with weather and wind in Its favor, an
eleven whose dense play up to to-day had been com
psct enough to protect their goal line from all oppos
ing elevens except Yale. But Chicago's mass plays
were Irresistible, and though the Badgers fought un
til they could fight no more, through the first half,
and once In the second half, the Maroon backs
plunged through Wisconsin's line until the ball was
carried over the goal line. Onl once did Wisconsin
have a chance to score, and that ona chance tfwy
were unable to avail themselves of, as, with tho ball
on their own 15-yard line, the Chicago forwards
braced so effectively that on four downs the ball was
only shoved forward 3 yards. In this respect the Chi
cago players surprised their supporters? Their defen
sive play was far stronger than expected, and even
when Wisconsin bad the ball, which was seldom,'
n'TVa waa comnelled to kick in most Instances.
Throughout the whole game the Badgers were on the
defensive, most of tho time with the ball well inu
their territory. Chicago quickly located the weak
spots In the Badgers' defense. They were mostly on
the left side of the line, and in the flrzt half, Slaker,
Fell. Hamlll and Henry, behind Interference that
was apparently unbreakable, tore through the tackle
and guard portions for gains that almost Invariably
netted the distance. On tho right side, however,
more difficulty was experienced. Curtlss, the Wiscon
sin right tackle, plajed a whirlwind game, and he
tore through Fell time and again In time to spoil the
play. He was easily the star of the Wisconsin
eleven. The whirlwind mass on tackle, the most ef
fective play of Chicago's, was often directed against
him, but It never netted more than 3 yards, and fre
quently Curtlss stopped the play before It was fairly
started. At the other side of the lino It came easier.
Flannlgan, Webb and Eldredge held their men safe,
and when Slaker or Fell were sent against the line
the ball generally found a resting placo several yards
In adiance ot wnere n siancu.
In the second hslf Comstock, exhausted and limp
ing retired In favor of Lerum, and little Tratt also
went out. Wilmarth taking his place. But It made
little difference. The game had already been won
and although Lerum made big Flannlgan's life a
burden to him for the balance of the game, the rest
of the team was too exhausted to make effective
headway. During the latter part of the second halt
Chicago played to keep Wisconsin from scoring and
once Kennedy adopted the. tactics ot CapUin Mc
Bride. of Yale, and dropped back 20 yards to hold
the ball. Chicago's Interference was far superior
to Wisconsin's and to this fact more than any other
must be ascribed the victory. Once the ball was
put in play every man on the team was pushing,
pulling or helping the runner to keep hl3 feet until
the whistle was blown for a down. Even when
tackled, the Chicago backs and tackles. Fell and
Webb being frequently used, struggled forward until
crushed down by a mass of plajers. Wisconsin's
in.frf.rpTiri. on the other hand, was more easily
broken up and at no stage of the game was the ball
advanced more than ten yards. Two hours before
the game a cold drizzling rain oegan to iau aim
throughout the battle showers fell frequently. The
rain did not have much effect on the field, hut It
was sufficiently heavy to render the ball wet and
slippery and fumbles by both sides were frequent.
When the referee's whistle was blown for the end
of the game, nearly 1.000 cheering rooters broke out
on the gridiron, hoisted the tired but happy cham-

The scene at the garden at 10 o'clock to-night was
exciting when the winners swept over the line,
ending one of the roost sensational contests of Its
kind ever ghen In this country. Ten thousand peo
ple saw the finish. From 6 o'clock to the end the
the pace maintained was heart-breaking. It was
nothing more or less than a continuous series of
sprints, first one and then another of the riders
electrifying the crowd with a terrific burst of
All the teams worked In 15 and 20 minute relays
but frequently one man relieved his mste In th
middle of a hair-raising sprint. Not for a single
Instant did a single rider leave the track side after
C o'clock. The moment a man dismounted from his
wheel he was wrapped In a bath robe or blanket, set
In a chair and his handlers went to work on him
In plain view of the spectators.
The last ten minutes of the race were ridden at
a record-breaking pace, first one and then the other
of the leaders going to the front and setting a
terrific clip. Beginning the last lap. Pierce, who
had been trailing the bunch, suddenly shot to tho
front, and he crossed the finish line three lengths
before Babcock who had been iylrg in fourth place
during the long sprints. McEachern finished third
and Champion Miller was fourth.
After the race the seventeen prize winners were
paraded about the track. Hobby Walthouer, the Indi
vidual Drize winner, who finished rldlne at 7:44. also
paraded, and to him the crowd gae its heartiest
welcome. Tne men then went to tneir training quar
ters, and after a rest proceeded to their respective
hotels. Only one accident occurred during the day.
That happened shortly after 3 o'clock during a long
sprint. Babcock fell, carrying disaster with him. As
a result of the fail the bunch became separated, and
resulted in Miller. Maya and Walthouer gaining a
lap on the others. An Investigation showed that the
accident was entirely due to careless riding on the
part of Babcock. and the referee decided to give back
all the laps lost by unlucky riders except the of
r,n,p whn was Denallzed one Ian.
The best previous record for 142 hours was made by
Miller In the garden In 1S9S. when in a six-day race
he roda 2.190 miles and C60 yards. The combined
mileage of Miller and Waller for 112 hours, therefore,
beats Miller's record by 543 miles.
After the close of the six-day race, a fifteen-mile
amateur paced race between Arthur Ross, Harrison.
N J and John Nelson, of Chicago, was won by Ross
In 29:25 2-5. At the start Ross' motorcycle was slow

According to reports received from the East, Joe
Walcott's next opponent will be Joe Choynskl. The
heavyw eight Is In Chicago at the present time, work
ing at a North side "gym." and those who have
seen him on tho scales aver that he weighs only
about 157 pounds. If this Is true a match between
Walcott and Choynskl would prove an even proposi
tion, unless the colored man should happen to reach
Choynskl s Jaw early In the fight.
Harry Pulllam. president of the Louisville base
ball club, arrived at Louisville from Pittsburg yes
terday. To a reporter he said: "If we cannot dis
pose ot our Interests at the league meeting next
week we will continue In the game. We would pre
fer to sell out. but not at a sacrifice. We will hare
material for a pretty good team. With Billy Cling

port of the public. Of course. It would not be the

expensive for us with the patronage we received at

He Is anxious to arrange a match with Paddy Pur

would make up his mind to re-enter the ring h could
command a good purse before the National Sporting
Club, of London, for a contest with Harry Ware.
Barry alowly shook his head with seeming sorrow us
he said that he realized that his fighting days were
over. "Too bad, Jimmy," remarked a friend stand
ing by, "that you did not receive that kind of an
offer about two years ago when you were fighting Hi-
pounds around New York." "lea," replied uarry.
"I was very unlucky. When I was good I could not
get anyone who would command a good puree to fight
me unless I gave away lots of weight. Since I have
retired all kinds of little fellows have sprung up
around the country."
The closing session of the board of review ot the
National Trotting Association was held yesterday.
Over 179 cases came before the board during its ses
sion and were, with the exception of several casc3.
In which Western horsemen and horses were con
cerned, disposed of. There were in addition about
twenty cases that had been continued over from the
last meeting. The continued cases win come up
for disposal at the next meeting of the board, which
will take place in Chicago the first week In May.

Chicago's two recognized fight referces Slier and
Hcgan are busy men these days. They are In !e
mand all over the country to officiate In glove con
tests. George Slier, who presided over the Trank
Erne-Jack O'Brien argument at New York city Mon
day night, will step over at Cincinnati on his way
back to this city. There on Monday night he is to
referee a fifteen-round contest between Joe Cans and
Kid Ashe. From there Slier may go to Louisville and
referee a bout. Malachy Hogan will also be absent
from Chicago during the first Tart of next ween.
Hogan Is to referee an eight-round contest at Detroit
Monday night. This leaves the Eddie Santry-Jack
O'Malley contest, scheduled to wind up the boxing
show clven for Frank Garrard's benefit at the Star
theater Monday night, without a referee. O'Mallcy
would not agree to any official yesterday when hs
learned that neither Slier nor Hogan would be here,
and It was finally agreed to choose the official at the
ringside Monday night.
"Mark Hanna,? ha, ha," laughed a man
of many ex's seated in the center of a group
of admiring friends at the Coates House
last night. "Mark Hanna is a much abused
man, who improves wonderfully upon ac
quaintance." The speaker was Charles Foster, Fostoria,
O., former governor of the Buck
eye state, secretary of the treas
ury under President Harrison and
for many years a familiar figure in
and for many years a familiar figure in
congress. He bears his 72 years well, has
the cheery, ringing laugh of a man a score
of years his junior and is an entertaining
conversationalist. Good nature and affabili
ty are his chier characteristics and to such
an extreme' did ho carry this trait of
character last night in chatting with a
group of men, many of whom fie had never
seen before, that he almost missed an en
gagement with Major Warner, who is one
of his old-time friends.
A question regarding the personality of
the new senator from Ohio aroused the
risibilities of the ex-governor and he pro
ceeded to enlarge upon the mistaken Idea
which the oubllc has of Mark Hanna.
"Why, according to the cartoons in the
Democratic papers Mr. Hanna is a very
uclv old devil, and people are agreeably
surprised when they first see him. Not
long ago I went out with him for a little
campaigning. It was his first effort at
speechmaking, and to say ho did very
creditably is putting it mildly; he fairly
took tho audiences by storm. Senator
Hanna has been a practical business man
all his life, and he is not an orator in any
sense of the 'word, but when he got start
ed at speechmaking he showed a surpris
ing control over his audiences and they
greedily called for more. They were not
content with hearing Hanna in the hall,
but he had to talk to them on the outside
after tho meeting; there were cheers for
Hanna and cheers again, and then every
body wanted to shake hands with him.
That Is the real Mark Hanna and not the
caricature of the opposition press.
"President McKinley." continued the vet
eran statesman, "well, sir. President Mc
Kinley is the luckiest man God ever cre
ated. How do I make that out? It is
simple. Before he became famous 'William
McKinley was a man of one idea, a pro
tectionist in the strongest sense of the
term. His tariff measure was drawn up
and passed, and then came the repeal and
the substitution of the Wilson bill, and in
its wake a period of depression which has
never been equaled in the history of tho
"Again there came a time for the nomina
tion of candidates for the presidencv. The
issue was the tariff, and naturally the
choice of the party fell upon William Mc
Kinley. tho great apostle of protection.
The campaign was started upon the tariff
issue, but the Democrats, cleverly enough,
turned attention toward the money ques
tion, and upon that issue the campaign
was fought and lost to them. William Mc
Kinley Is still the logical candidate of the
party, and as for thf Democrats well,
their candidate is already nominated and
well. I might say, tho election Is over as
far as he is concerned.
Antl-Expnnslon a Flxale.
Soon after graduatintr from one of the best medical colleges in the world
(over a quarter of a century ago), I became convinced of the importance o
special studyand attention to the much-dreaded and health-destroying diseases
of the Genito-Urinary Organs and Blood and Skin Diseases.
It was generally conceded by the profession that the failure of success in
the treatment of these diseases was due to the fact that they had not received
enough attention and were not understood by the regular practitioner. Hav
ing decided to adopt the treatment of these diseases as my specialty, I went to
New York and associated myself with the prominent men of that city who had
made them their life study. I also connected myself with the largest venereal
hospitals of the world, spending over five years in special study and work,
receiving certificates from the leading Institutions of the East, including tha
Bellevue Hospital, the Post Graduate and Polyclinic Colleges of New York,
obtaining an experience that cannot be acquired by the ordinary practitioner.
I have devoted my life to the study and practice of my specialty and have
been successful in restoring to health and vigor many cases that. were in tha
most serious condition and had passed through all classes and methods ot treat
ment without benefit. Your failure to be cured by others is no valid argument
against my treatment.
I claim advantages in treatment of diseases coming under my specialty
over other physicians. No honest man need go without the treatment that will
effect his complete and permanent cure. The poorest can have the benefit of
my experience. Many suffer because the means of cure are beyond their reach,
My treatment, with special advice to suit each particular case, is positively
within the reach of every suffering invalid. I treat and guarantee to cure the
following described diseases:

"What will be tho Issue upon which the
next campaign is fought? It must be sil
ver, for there is nothing else left. This
antl-exnanslon sentiment has alreariv
proven to be a fizzle. It is not the popular
idea, and even many Democrats have come
out flat-footed tho other way, so that Is
disposed of. Now as to trusts, what Is
there to b done in this resnect? Has not
the Sherman act a Republican measure
been declared constitutional? This is the
law through which some political jurists
were going to drive a coach-and-four and
lo and behold tho United States supreme
court has upheld It.
"The test was made recently In what Is
known as the Anderson case, a trust com
posed of sewer pipe manufacturers. This
corporation was not so much a combina
tion to fix prices; it was based upon the
principle of a division of territory. The
country was divided Into districts and only
certain factories which were In the com
bination could dispose of their goods within
the boundaries of a certain district. Of
course there was an understanding as to
the price, but that is not tne point upon
which the case was fought. The United
States supereme court declared the sewer
pipe trust a combination in restriction of
trade and Its charter was declared void.
If the law applied in this case it will apply
in hundreds of others. So It is not a ques
tion of introducing and passing anti-trust
legislation, but of enforcing what has been
passed. What is there left to make a
light on, but silver? And with that as the

Whatever may be the cause ot varicocele. Its In
jurious effects are too well known for extended comment-
Suffice to say that it depresses the mind,
weakens the body, racks the nervous system and
ultimately leads to a complete loss of sexual power.
It you are a victim ot this dire disease, come to my
office and let me explain to you my process ot
treating It. Under my treatment the patient Im
proves from the very beginning. The pools of stag
nant blood are forced from tha dilated veins, which
rapidly assume their normal sire, strength and
soundness. All Indications of disease and weakness
vanish completely, and In their stead come the
pride, the power and the pleasures ot perfect health
and restored manhood.
It matters not how long you hare suffered from
Stricture, nor how many different doctors hate dis
appointed you, I will cure you Just as certainly as
you come to me ror treatment. I win not ao n Dy cm
ting or dilating My treatment Is new, entirely
original with me, and perfectly painless. It com
pletely dissolves the Stricture and permanently re
moves every obstruction from the urinary passage.
It stops every unnatural discharge, allays all Inflam
mation, reduces the prostate gland when enlarged,
cleanses the bladder and kidneys, invigorates the
sexual organs and restores health and soundness to
every part ot tne noay aaectea oy ine disease.
Syphilitic Blood Poison.
On account of Its frlehtful hideousnesa syphilis Is
commonly called the ling of all venereal diseases.
It may be either hereditary cr contracted. Once tho
system ts tainted with ft, the disease may manifest
Itself in the form of scrofula, ecxema, rheumatic
pains, stiff or swollen joints, eruptions or copper
colored spots on face or body, little ulcers In the
mouth or on the tongue, sore throat, swollen ton
sils, falling out of the hair or eyebrows, and finally
a leprous-ltke decay of the flesh and bone. If you
have any of these or similar symptoms, consult me
Immediately. If I find your fears unfounded, I
will quickly unburden your mind. But if your con
stitution la Infected with syphilitic virus I will tell
you frankly, and show yon how to get rid of It. My
special treatment for syphilis Is practically the re
sult of my life work, and is Indorsed by the best
physicians of America and Europe. It contains no
dangerous drugs or injurious medicines of any kind.
It goes to the very bottom of the disease and forces
out every particle of Impurity. Soon every sign
and symptom disappear completely and forever.
The blood, the tissue, tbe flesh, the bones and the
whole system are cleansed, purified and restored to
perfect health, and the patient prepared anew for the
duties and pleasures of life. We guarantee & cure

Vesuvius could erupt again with the smoke made from the
"Arties" last year. Their sale ran into the millions.
Natural that they're popular. There's as good stock in 'em
