Kagle Baseball Notes.
The odds now are 5 to lthat Baltimore
will win the pennant.
Fred Pfeffer's benefit game at Chica
go promises to be a corker.
Billy Niles. the Cincinnati boy with
Milwaukee, lead that .team in batting.
Tom Lovett did not make a put-out in
thirty-seven games he pitched for Pro
vidence this season.
Pitcher Frank Wilson of Cleveland
has the jaundice and will not be able to
play again this season.
Louie Bierbauer is playing second
base for Pittsburg with a thumb as big
as a bat. He refuses to give up.
Bobby Caruthers has almost reached
oblivion. His job as umpire in the
Western association is doubtful.
The Washlngtons are again Intact in
the field. Scheibeck having returned to
short and Crooks to second base.
Cuppy is $50 out in that last Baltimore-Cleveland
game. He bet that
amount he would win the game.
Harry Blake, the Cleveland's right
fielder, will not play again this season.
A wrenched ankle is the reason why.
Fall River won the pennant in the
New England league. New Bedford,
the home of Bancroft, came in second.
Joe Harrington, a New England lea
gue third baseman, is playing second
base for Boston. He's' not so bad, nor
yet a star.

Walter Wilmot says he will not play
in Chicago next season if he has to quit
base ball to carry out his resolve. He
can't stand the adverse criticism heap
ed upon him.
In New York they say that Lange
and Dahlen are the only ball players on
the Chicago team. If these men are a
standard then New York has but one
ball player George Davis.
Persident Ban Johnson of the Wes

and Kansas City would make good re

Tom Kinslow, the catcher, who was
released by Pittsburg because of dis
orderly conduct, has been unable to
get a league engagement. "The wages
of sin is death," and Tom is dead as
far as fast company Is concerned.
A. G. Spaulding of the Chicago club
does not believe in a club trying to
stem adverse criticism a la Freedman
in the case of Sam Crane. Said Mr.
Spaulding the other day: "We have had
a great deal of adverse criticism show
ered upon us in Chicago, but there is I
no need of getting hot under the collar.
My policy, to let the papers roast the
Chicago club as much as they please,
and thereby keep it before the public,
is a good one, for if the newspapers
didn't mention baseball, where would
the National league be? It's a mistake
to antagonize reporters because of their
harsh criticism, for they are all honest
in their convictions, and have a right
to say and write what they please."
Mr. Spaulding has the right idea of
things, still it is hardly probable that
that the Chicago press criticised the
Colts without just cause.

NEW WOMAN AT YUKON.
The new woman has made her ap
pearance in Oklahoma and she wears
revolvers. Of her advent at Yukon
the local paper says: "Two women
and two men alighted from a wagon
which halted at the public well early
Tue'sday morning. The men turned
their backs to the gaze of the curious
ly inclined observers while the wo
men proceeded to pump water from the
well for ithe team they were driving.
One of the women wore the regulation
mother 'hubbard dress, fastened at the
back. While exerting herself at the
pump handle a stiff breeze unloosed the
locust-like garment and exposed to the
eyes of the onlookers a huge brace of
trusty 45-calIbre guns strapped to her
waist under her dress. Without any
perturbation of mind or apparent dis
turbed equanimity of manners, she
closed up the aperture of the garment
and went about -her business as though
nothing had transpired. Tne reporter
was anxious to interview the quartet
up to -the time this incident transpired,
bu concluded as he was as yet unac
quainted with the "new woman" and
her ways, he would not insist upon it."
DELAWARES GETTING KICHER.
The littl tribe of Delaware Indians
in the western portion of the Cherokee
nation, the remnant of a once powerful
and dominant race in the east, have just
come into great luck. In a couple of
weeks they will receive about $220,000
cash in consequence of a judgment of
the court of claims at Washington in
their favor. And this piece of good for
tune is only a continuation of a series
of windfalls that have dropped into
their pockets during the past five or
six years. A little over a year ago they
received from the government a little
over $1,000,000 in cold cash, from trust
funds lying in the treasury, and short
ly before they received other large sums
and "these together with property they
already had, and other big lumps of
ready money in, hand, will make every
man, woman and child of them worth

MAYOR HAHN IS MAD.
At El Reno Mayor Hahn created a
sensation at- the council meeting this
week by charging that the script buy
ers and city treasurer are in a com
bination to keep down the price of script
to enable them to speculate off the peo
ple. A committee was appointed to in
vestigate. Mayor Hahn's sensational
statement was as follows:
"Mr. President and Gentlemen of the
"I desire to file the following state
ment of facts with our caty clerk, and
ask .the same to be made a part of the
"Whereas, There seems to be a well
founded rumor of a strong desire on
the part of some of the money lender
of the city of El Reno to depvciate
the vahie of city script, thus depriving
the honest working men in tho city's
employ from receiving a fair remunera
tion for services rendered. I am cred
ibly informed that our city treasurer
has been speculating to some extent
in our script, and recently made an
offer of SO cents on the dollar for some
script issued on the street improvement
fund, when he well knew the money
was in the hands of the county treas
urer for the redemption of the samv,
and thus lnjurmg the credit of our
city and depriving our laboring class
of their just dues, and
"Whereas, There is sufficient money
now in the various funds of the city
treasury io redeem all script issued,
!es the $17,500.00 covered by the re
funding bonds; and for ?he purpose f
maintaining- script at par value. 1 de
sire to offer the following resolution. j
"Resolved. That it is the sense of ;
the city council of El Reno, that for
the purpose of maintaining the parity
of all city script issued hereafter, that
the city general, fire, water, side walk
and street improvements funds be used
in common, and script Issued hereafter
upon any one of these funds, if upon
presentation of said script there be no
money in that particular fund, that the
city jrewer shall be authorized to
pay said script out of any of the funds
in which there may be a surplus.
"In support, of the resolution I desire
to add, by handling the city funds In
this way we aan keep city script at
par. and with your assistance we will
haverfno trouble in maintaining the
present splendid condition of El Reno
and soon fhave sufficient funds to meet
all future obligations and reduce the
present high rate of taxation.
The last statement of the financial
condition of El Reno showed the city
indebtedness to be $25,900.00. Of this
amount the refunding bonds cover $17,
800.00, leaving a balance of script un
paid of $8,100.00. Amount in hands of
city itreasurer, paid by county treas
urer $7,752.00 leaving a balance of out
standing warrants of only $343 which
sum is more than provided for by funds
in the hands of the county treasurer,
received since making this last report
to the city. Please note the fact that
if all script issued, not covered by the
refunding bonds, were paid, there would
be a balance in the .hands of thetreas
urer, and with accrued tax due from the
county treasurer which will be paid
into the city treasury inside of 90 days
the city will be on a firm cash basis.
"Gentlemen, I believe that each and
every one of you have the best inter
ests of our city at heart, and I certain
ly have no desire to censure any one un
justly, but want all to understand that
we are not in sympathy with any one
who uses -their influence directly or
indirectly for the purpose of depreciat
ing the face value of city script, and
I hope that I will not again have occa
sion to mention the name of our city
treasurer in connection with speculat
ing in city script, or any of our city
officers. FRANK HAHN.

HOW IT WAS DONE.
Postal Clerk Almon Tells Aooat that Kali
Will Almon returned from his round
trip to the Panhandle yesterday and
his friends at the postoffice hardly
knew him. He had been scared out of
four years growth.
Will was In charge of the mall car of
the train, that was held up near Curtis.
Cherokee strip, by robbers, day before
A reporter for the Eagle met him at
the court house last night and he was
still rather pale behind the gills.
"Well I should say I was scared,"
said Will. "Who would not be scared
held up by robbers with two Winches
ters stuck under your nose. Yes, I ac
knowledge I was scared."
"Tell us about It?"
"It was this way: the day was as hot
as Jupiter and I had all the doors of
my car opened. After we had gone
beyond Curtis a few miles the train
stopped and I looked out. I saw the
track hands all there and I thought
nothing of it. I kind 'thought they
stopped the train to borrow a match
or a chew of tobacco from the engineer.
Pretty soon I saw four men jump out
from behind a pile of ties and tell Bob
Buswell. the engineer, to throw up his
hands. I honestly think that Bobs
hands were about twelve feet long and
made of rubber they went so high in the
air and I tell you that Bob Buswell is
no coward either. Two men stood one
on each side of the train firing shots at
every head that was stuck out while
two more came down towards the ex
press car. I was standing at the door
of my car looking out when they came
on me kind o' sudden. Two guns were
placed under my nose and I was order
ed to throw up my hands."
"Did you throw up?"
"Did I? Well, I guess yes, and so sim
ultaneously that I nearly broke two of
my knuckles against the top of the car.
My hands actually felt so limber and
elastic that I felt I could give the man
in the moon a belt in the nose."
"Hand out the money," said one of
"I am the mall man' said I. I guess
you want the express car. They look
ed at me kind o' sharp and I expected
to see the top of my headplay hide and
go seek In the prairie grass the next
moment. One lltle touch of the trig
gers would send me to kingdom come
and I tell you now In confidence that I
wished I had been converted while Ma
jor Cole was here."
"Well, did they kill you?"
"No, they did .not, but they might as
well for they scared me to death. I
have been running through the Terri
tory for a long time and I often wished
I was held up to see what the feeling
would be. I know all about it now and
I am satisfied. Well, to make a long
story short, they took compassion on
my youth and innocence and went up
to the next car where "Dad," the ex
press messenger, was taken entirely
by surprise. That man, "Dad," nearly
jumped out of his hide when they fired
a shot at him that passed within two
inches of his nose. He didn't do a thing
but throw three summersaults In the air
yell like a Comanche Indian and make
a dive into the passenger car where he
disguised himself by looking sober.
About that time the women In the car
began to have fits. There were about
fifty harvest excursionists on the train
and all of them were from the east.
One woman carried on like she was
crazy and she prayed loud enough to
wake Julius Caeser in his grave. She
hid her money in her stocking without
regard for our modesty. The robbers
took everything they could find In the
express car and then went back up -to
Bob Buswell when they said:
" We don't want to go away empty
handed: we must rob the mail car.'
"Don't do It. said Bob, "there's noth
ing there, and you'll get Uncle Sam
"They then said they guessed they
would not and my heart fell back near
its right place again. They then left,
telling Bob Buswell not to pull out till
they gave him the signal. The four
men then went into a ravine where two
other men he.'f their horses. When
they gava tp signal the two deputy mar
shsls who were on the train got brave
and began firing at them. The six men
returned the fire and whe I saw them
preparing to do so I fell flat on the
floor and hugged it till I was as thin
as a piece of paper. I never heard
such peppering of bullets In all my
life. Bullets hit that train like hall
stones and it Is a wonder we were not
all killed. While I was hugging the floor
I wrote a note to my wife, telling her
where to find my life insurance policy,
thinking I would never live to see her
fair face again. When we got Into Wood
ward we were all ready to join the

Tbpeksc Kan., Sept. 14. (Special)
Leavenworth is not afraid of Attorney
General Dawes. The saloons are run
ning openly at Leavenworth and will
continue to run openly. Dawes will
not appoint an assistant attorney gen
eral there. He can not do it. At the
same time Leavenworth is not fawbing
around the "abnormal specimen of mor
al obliquity." It talks to his face just
as Wichita and Atchison does.
The Leavenworth Times in an edi
torial this morning handles Dawes an.l
without gloves. It says:
"What object has Da-wes in making
so venomous an attack on Wichita?
His recent letter to H. W. Lewis shows'
an absolutely hostile and implacable
temper. His language is minatory:
It Is domineering; it is despotic. 'It
may take a year,' he says, it may tako
eighteen months, but I can control the
policy so far as the prohibitory law is
concerned for that length of time at
least. It doesn't make any difference
whether the metropolitan police force
is abolished or not, prosecutions wilt
go on so long as a man Is found to pro
secute.' Again he says: 'If costs aro.
heavy. It is the fault of these same
taxpayers. If they persist in encourasr.
ing, aiding, assisting and abetting viola
tlons of the law, they must not squirm
and play baby when it comes to pay
ing the fiddler. They seem to- be deter
mined to have this jig of outhvwfulness.
It must stop, regardless tire cost."
"It seems to us that there is a aiote of
malignity running through this, and
an antagonism to the whole bily of
inhabitants of an important city in th
state. And there is besides the atti
tude and imperlousfness of a czar which
cannot be tolerated by men and. women
calling themselves Americans.
"Why so truculent, Mr. Dawes? The
prohibitory law Is not enforced any
where in Kansas; cannot be enforced:
never will be enforced. Mr. Dawes
knows it. Then what is the reason of
this dogged work of mischief at Wichi
ta? What is the motive of it? What po
litical end or personal grudge Is to be
