Breaking: Crowd "Scoldy,
Bill" Won Enslly
The Kansas Citys last) night defeated
tiio Owls in one of the most interesting
and exciting tournament games over
bowled in Kansas City and thereby prac
tically assured for themselves the cham
pionship of the Kansas City Bowlins
League for the season -which will close
ccxt week. The Kansas Citys, by last
night's victory, secured a lead of one game
over the Owls, and as both -will probably
win their games scheduled for next week
they will doubtless finish in the order they
now occupy, with the Kansas Citys first,
the Owls second, the Acmes third and the
The Grand alleys were packed until It
would hardly have been possible to crowd
another person Into them, so great was
the desire of bowling enthusiasts and the
friends and rooters of the opposing teams
to witness this decisive struggle. At least
twenty-live ladles were In attendance and
they seemed to enjoy the excitement of
the struggle fully as much as the men.
Th big crowd on the whole was well be
haved, though Referee "Whitfield had on
one or two occasions to caution them
against too vigorous demonstrations.
The game was a clean and well bowled
one, considering the pressure and the un
usual conditions. The excitement was In
tense when the two first bowlers faced
the alleys and by the rousing cheers which
greeted a spare for "Whitney and a strike
for Hackett it could be told that the root
ers were pretty equally divided in their
Both teams started out at a strong pace.
"When the referee announced at the close
of the fifth frame that the Owls led by
three pins a rousing cheer went up from
the fctock yards contingent. This was the
last time the Owls showed In front during
the game, for in the sixth frame the Kan
sas Citys went into the lead and main
tained It to the end, increasing their mar
gin with each succeeding five frames. In
the tenth frame the Kansas Citys led by
42 pins, in the fifteenth frame by S2 pins,
in the twentieth frame by 31 pins. In the
twenty-fifth frame by 109 pins and at the
close by 133 pins, the score at the end
being 2,561 for the Kansas Citys to 2,1
for the Owls.
Captain Wntson. of the Kansas Citys,
was the star, bowler of the game, with
the fine total of 560, made by careful,
steady work. Hacket, of the Kansas Citys,
ran second, with 53S, and Whitney, of the
Owls, was third, with 530. Delterlch fin
ish fourth, with E19. and Crider was fifth,
with 503. Then came Taylor with 8, Bell
with 4SS, Farley with 450, Stranathan with
4T0 and Jordan bringing up the rear with
407, a very low score for him.

WAS EASY FOFTSCALDY BILL."
He Bent Jimmy Lavone In Three
Bounds, Fnnishlnir Him
A goodly sized party of sports journeyed
across Into Knnsas last night to witness a
glove contest between "Scaldy Bill" Quinn,
the well known middleweight, and Jimmy
Lavone, who claims to hall from Syracuse,
but who has for some time been working
at the Brush Creek coal mines.
The battle lasted three rounds and served
only to Illustrate Qulnn's cleverness and
,the wonderful power of Lavone to stand
punishment. Lavone proved to be a novice
in the art of boxing, but he was as game
as a pebble and took ercugh punishment
to have killed an ox before he cried quits.
He was not knocked out, but ho had all
ho wanted of it.
Mlnoguo Rnd Sullivan were behind
"Scaldy BUI," while Mcllody and Dclough
crty looked afier Lavone. AVhen Lavono
stripped he showed up as a perfect phys
ical specimen, six feet In height, with
powerful chest and shoulders, and weigh
ing about ISO pounds. Quinn looked a trill o
heavy, scaling at 160 pounds.
In the first round Quinn merely felt out
his opponent, though it was evident as
soon as he put up his hands that he would
not be dangerous. Towards the close of
the round Qulun landed some heavy blows
on the fnct- In the second round Quinn de
voted his attention to Lavone's body, pun
ishing him terribly, and in the third round
he went after him with both hands. He
cut his lip open, causing the blood to flow,
and with n. right hand swing sent his op
ponent under the ropes In tire corner. La
vone was game and struggled to his feet
only to meet another swing which knocked
him through the ropes again. He was not
out. but he had all he wanted and the ref
eree declared Quinn the winner. Extra
large gloves were used, or the fight would
have lasted only two rounds. Quinn did
not have a mark on him to show that he
had been in a fight.

SUNDAY RACING NOT INDORSED.
L. A. W. Toole Decided Negative Ac
tion on Important Proposi
Albany, N. Y., Feb. 12. What the League
of American Wheelmen In annual conven
tion to-day declined to do was of equal im
portance if not greater than those things
they did. They declined to admit profes
sionals, no matter of what stnndtng, to
either full or associate membership in the
league. They refused to allow tho assem
bly at its meetings to select the city fpr the
annual meets. They declined by a heavy
vote to allow local option for Sunday rac
ing They declined to cut off the club in
itiation fee of $2 or allow consuls to pass
upon racing board suspensions. They de
clined to amend at all the section of the
constitution that provides only Tor ama
teur riders and draws the color line. Thty
declined to offer a salary for the racing
committee. . .. , . ..
The things they did were to divide the
league into consulates of twenty-flvo clubs
each; allowing amateurs to exchange their
'prizes for anything but cash: Increasing
the bond of tho secretory to JIO.OCO and the
treasurer to $15,000, and placing road rac

only Showalter may be looked upon as a
certain winner for the American team.
However, things may alter In to-morrow's
play and the Americans njlght still come
out victorious. It was the second annual
International match between these coun
tries. Last year the Americans beat their

SOUTHERN PACIFIC XAMES A ROUXD
TniP BASING RATE OF $S5.
Meeting of Kansas City-Clilcngo and
Kansas Clty-St. Lonti Lines at
St. Loais Branch From
Mena to Hot Springs
Omaha, Neb., Feb. 12. The Southern Pa
cific has just announced to the lines In tho
Western Passenger Association a basing
rate of J33 for tho trip from Ogden to
Carson City and return. This Is practically
a rate of one fare for the round trip. If
the roads In the Western Passenger Asso
ciation adopt this basing rate the rate
from Kansas City and Omaha to Carson
City and return will be $63; from Chicago
to Carson City and return the rate will
bo $77.50. These rates are $13 higher than
it was at first supposed they would be.
Tho Southern Pacific will charge $S more
between Ogden and Reno than was sup
posed. As the fight will bo at Carson
City instead of Reno, another $2 has to
be taken on.
Dnn Stnnrt's Idea,
Chicago, Feb. 12. A telegram received
from Carson City to-day, signed by Dan
Stuart, says that tho 'announced basing
rate from Ogden to Carson will probably
be supplemented by a further reduction of
tho extra one-fifth. ,
HOT SPRINGS BRANCH.
General Claim Agent Orr Reports the
Route Feasible and the Coun
try's Resources Remarkable.
J. H. Orr, general claim agent of tho
Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf, returned
yesterday from a trip over the proposed
branch of the road from Mena to Hot
Springs. Mr. Orr, accompanied by A. M.
Nelson, assistant engineer of the company,
followed almost an air line in their trip
across the country, and decided that the
route was feasible. Tho country abounds
in minerals and the line would pass
through some fine agricultural- lands. In
the Ouachita, Mazan and jCaddo valleys.
Mr. Orr says that in the vicinity df Mount
Ida, Silver City, Crystal City and Bear
there aro good sliver mines already devel
oped, many tons of ore having been hauled
thirty-five or forty miles to tho railroad
and shipped to smelters at a profit. A
millrun of gold bearing quartz was shipped
from Max creek, east of Mena, to the Ar
gentine smelter, and made a remarkable
run. A carload shipment will soon be made
to the Argentine smelter for a further
test. Messrs. Orr and Nelson will make
Mena their temporary headquarters for
the next two months and will drive across
the country by several different routes be
tween Mena and Hot Springs.
UNION PACIFIC LANDS.
Secretary Francis Modifies His Re
cent Orders Governing the
Patenting: of Same.
Washington, Feb. 12. Secretary Francis

status occupied tinder the order of Secre
tary Smith last Juno, directing the lands
of the road to be patented where shown to
have been sold to bona fide-purchasers and
fixing the affidavits of two persons familiar
with the facts as sufficient to show bona
tide purchase. Secretary Francis had later
required the affidavits of owners or occu
pants as to bena fide purchases, ras weil as
of the company's official, but the road com
plained that this was an Injustice, in view
of deaths and other reasons. The order
applies only to the Union Pacific, the lands
of the Central Pacific being specifically ex
cepted. Secretary Franqis explained that
the reorganization committee having guar
anteed a large part of the government's
claim against the Union Pacific, the neces
sity for his former ruling has ceased.

WHY THE BOSSES ARE SORE.
CAXXOT DICTATE THE APPOIXT
3IEXTS OF ASSESSOR BOAVER.
Real Secret of the Reason AA'hy the
O'.Velll-SIinnnon Push Has Ar
rayed Its Batteries Against a
Democratic Office Holder.
The action of the O'Neill-Shannon faction
of the Jackson county Democracy In trying
to belittle the duties and Importance of the
assessor's office, as was told fully in The
Journal yesterday, is but a continuation
of the fight of that portion of tho divided
Democracy that began last summer. AVhen
it was decided by O'Neill and Shannon that
they would control the party's actions
they fixed a "slate" for all of the county
offices and put it through at tho county
convention, except that they lost Curtis
Campbell, their candidate for assessor.
That place was won by Charley Bower.
Their failure to secure the whole slate mor
tified them greatly. They openly stated
they could have beaten Bower but for the
Influence of Davo Wallace, who was for
riower, anu at me proper time tnrew his
strength to him and broke tho slate. They
dared not open a fight on Wallace, because
he was In a position to toss them up in
tho air and they knew it, so they kept
still. They hoped to browbeat Bower and
force their dictation on him, and when the
election was over that wing of the Democ
racy called a conference of the officers
elected and said the party "puEh" had
promised certain places to faithful hench
men. They made each officer a list of
deputies and asked that they bo appointed.
This was to redeem the promise of the
bosses and all of the county officers swal
lowed tho bait and accepted the dictation
except Bower. He simply told them he did
not owe his election to them and further,
he did not propose to allow any man to ba
forced on him unless he was' competent to
discharge his duties. It was his office, he
declared, and he proposed to run it as ho
believed to be proper. He said he would
namo every deputy that served in the of
fice. Falling in this effort to dictate to Bower,
whom they had antagonized, they havo
now tried to cut down his offlco to get even.
This is the entire secret of tho lignt on
Bower. They do not intend to allow any
.man to come Into power to whom they can
not dictate. They will rule or ruin, probably
the latter in the end.
A special from Jefferson City says: Rep
resentative Crisp introduced in tho house
yesterday a bill fixing the salaries of offi

Washington, Feb. 12. Tho feature of to
day's discussion of the Anglo-American
treaty by the senate was the general effort
to reach a basis of agreement whereby the
treaty could be disposed of and other busi
ness taken up. The session closed with an
announcement by Senator Sherman that
ho would Issue a call for a meeting of the
foreign committee to be held previous to
to-morrow's session of the senate, with the
hope of being able to present an amend
ment that would bo so acceptable to the
senate as to make It ppssiblo to secure the
ratification of the treaty before ,adjourn
mtnt to-morrow. Ho also announced that
ho would not ask the senate to devote moro
than one more day to tho question this
This announcement had been preceded by
a debate, in which a largo number of scna,
tors had participated, lasting from 1 until
"5 o'clock. There were several speeches on
tho merits of the treaty as such, but these
wero interspersed through the entire pro
ceedings with suggestions looking to the
importance of speedily disposing of the
tieaty, either temporarily or permanently,
by agreeing to a postponement until the
extra session or by a direct vote on the
document, which would result either in its
ratification or rejection. The suggestion
which appeared to meet with the most
general favor was one looking to the post
ponement of further consideration until
immediately after March 4. and the predic
tion was freely made after adjournment
that this would be the outcome.
There were innumerable short speeches
during the day, but the principal addresses
on tho merits of the treaty wero made
by Senators Daniel, Stewart, Hoar, Lodge

Senator Turpie that nny negotiation under

Senator Daniel took an opposite view, as
did Senator Chandler. Senator Daniel made
an elaborate argument; taking a view rad

ntor 'Turpie, and showing that from his
point of view tho government would by
the acceptance of the treaty place itself
in a position to make this country subordi
nate to England In many important re
spects. He held with Senator Morgan that
the senate in accepting the treaty would
voluntarily delegate to another authority
its share in tho treaty making power, and
contended that It could not legitimately
do this under the constitution.
Senator Chandler announced himself 03
