SPORTING Tom O'Rourke Says Sharkey and Jeff Will Fight. But Big Jim Must Not Hug the Sailor Too Much. CLINCHES SOT WASTED Terry MeGoyern and' Frank Erne to Be Matched. Champion Light "Weight and Champion Feather Weight. New Tork, June 18. Jim Jeffries and Tom Sharkey will surely fight in spite of the present uncertain state of af fairs which exists in regard to the matching of the men. When Tom O'Rourke was asked today If the match was cT, he said: "Certainly not. Sharkey 'will fight Jeffries before September 1, but we won't allow him to hug and haul Shar key around in clinches like he has with other- fighters he has met. I think Sharkey can beat Jeffries if the latter Isn't allowed to hang on to him." Oscar Gardner, the "Omaha Kid," and Tommy White, of Chicago, have been secured by "Bat" Masterson to fight a twenty-round bout before the Denver Athletic club on June 25. This will be another one of those fights in which a clever man will meet a rugged fighter. The chances are that Gardner will come very near beating White as McGovern did. Joe Gans will be kept busy for some time to come, as his manager, Al Her forcl, has seven lights arranged for him. On June 26 he meets Barney Fu rey for 15 rounds in Cincinnati; June 30 he tackles Chicago Jack Daly in Chi cago; July 4 he fights Jack Gibbs in Cleveland; July 10 he boxes Toung Griffo at Coney Island; July IS Whitney lister in Baltimore; July 29 George McFadden at the Broadway Athletic tiub. and on Labor day he meets Tim Kearns at Bridgeport. Eddie Connolly, the welter-weight champion, and 'Jim Ferns, alias Rube Ferns, of Kansas City, have signed ar ticles to box a twenty-rive round bout at the Seaside Sporting club. at Coney Island on June 30. Fern is the western fighter who secured a decision over Mysterious Billy Smith, and also beat a numnr of good fighters in the west. Sam Fitzpatrick is enthusiastic over Billy Hanrahan's chances of beating Tommy West when they meet next Tuesday night. He has taken Hanra han to New Dorp. S. I., and is person ally superintending his work. He writes that Bill is in first class shape, and if he is successful Fitzpatrick will take on any middle weight in this coun try before going to England. WHAT'S TJB NOWP Tommy Ryan Crawfishing in His Match With Root New York, June IS. Jack Root, the lusty 158-pound man from the Windy City, started for his home -last night. He came here a month ago and began training for a bout he supposed he was to have with Tommy Ryan. The latter sent word he would not fight Root ex cept at 15S pounds at the ring side. The Chicagoan said he had money to say he could make 158 pounds at 6 o'clock, and couldn't understand why Ryan flunked. Root then inquired if McCoy desired a bout. The "Kid" said he had de clared oft all matches and would not take on any one. Tommy West dodged Root and made matches with Bonner and Hanrahan. Root certainry seems to have scared the eastern, middle weights to the tall timber. A GRAND BOUT. Terry McGovern and Frank Likely to Bo Matched. New York, June IS. There Erne Is strong probability that Frank Erne, the lightweight champion, and Terry Mc Govern, the bantam and featherweight champion, will come together in a bout in the near1 future. Sam Harris, man ager for McGovern, stated that he had talked with Erne's manager, and .the latter had consented to a meeting. "It will be a handicap fight." said Harris, "and Erne will agree to stop Trry in a certain number of rounds. If the lightweight champion will weigh 128 pounds at the ring side, and at tempt to stop Terry in ten rounds, the match will be quickly made." "And," added a bystander, "if Terry does not stop Erne inside the ten rounds I will be surprised." Erne is now negotiating for a match with McFadden, Rod McMahon having offered to back the lightweight cham pion for Jl.OuO or 52.000 a side. Harris said he will make arrange ments with Erne any time the latter shows willingness. Ethelbert's Jockey Slow. New York, June 18.

Regents, Students and Profes sors of Emporia Normal Involved in a Peculiar Row Over Bloomer Question. GIRL CLASS REBELS. Camera Picture of Basket Ball Team at Play Secured by a Young Man and Lady Teacher Objects. Declares For No More Athletics Regent Madden Differs. Emporia, June 18. Regents and pro fessors at the state normal are involved in a peculiar row. "You may say for me," said John Madden to a reporter, "that this fight has just begun." Madden was talking about his contro versy at the normal about Miss Stone, instructor in physical culture. The Madden movement is not really against Miss Stone. In the contention at the normal Miss Stone is merely a figure head. "I am for student government," continued Madden. "The students who go to the Kansas normal are young men and women of fairly mature years. They should not be treated like children. They are capable of forming Judgments, cap able of self government. Do you know that the fine courage those boys exhibi- .ted in coming before regents, in opposi tion to the powers or the taeuity, De claring their wrongs and demanding their rights, is an inspiring thing. Boys brave enough to do that are brave enough to restrain themselves, and gov ern themselves." It is likely that Mr. Ritchie, of the board of regents, will agree with Mad den in the matter. Regents Larabee and Dodge would in . all likelihood do as President Taylor suggests, but there is a bare possibility that Turner and Ross may join the boxers. The vote on Chris man three . to three represents more nearly than the vote on Miss Stone the trength of the Madden movement. Chrisman has been an outspoken advo cate of the student body in faculty, a kind of Democrat In the meetings. He as with them in the contention for a readjustment of the trained nurse's du es last winter. There was a cloud the size of a man's hand on the horizon all winter in Miss tone's department a year ago. But it blew into a cyclone when Miss Stone took the girl's basket ball team out to play on their grounds and a boy, John Turkelson took their picture. President Taylor and the regents and visitors to the normal were permitted to see the iris in their bloomers. But when the boy took a snap shot at the girls a hun- red yards away, Miss Stone was angry nd refused to allow the girls to play. The girls rebelled and played in spite of Miss Stone s orders. They got their pic tures taken, and sent to Miss Stone for heir own ball. She wouldn't let them have it. There was insubordination. She gave her final examinations to cer- ain seniors the day of their reception. The seniors protested. They would be tired out. Miss Stone was firm. As a matter of school discipline President Taylor stood by Miss Stone in her con- entions. The student body opposed her. John Madden espoused the cause of the students and for the first time in many years, the students appeared before the regents against the faculty. If they can find an audience there once they can go again. They claim that petitions have been unavailing in the past. If thev avail now "the old order changeth giv- ng place to new lest one good custom should corrupt the world." Student government is a form of school govern ment which is organized with the stu dents on the disciplinary committee with the faculty. In some cases the stu dents have equal rights with the faculty In making schools laws and enforcing; them. In other institutions the stu dents have representation on the disci plinary committee but only a minority vote in the committee's deliberations. It Is said to work for good in the schools where It is adopted. But if it were adopted at the normal only the umer classmen would be permitted to partici pate in stuoent government, as the model school and lower classmen are not old enough to form administrative judgments.

The oats harvest began in Montgomery county today. Farmers on all sides report an unusually good crop of oats in this section this year, although at first only a small crop was predicted. The oats are so heavy that a wind blows the grain down and it cannot rise again. This has happened in many places and whole fields are down, though uninjured. It will take twice the usual time to cut such fields. Corn is as high as a man's head in many places and is tasseling. It promises well, especially since the recent hot weather. The chinch bugs from the wheat fields that have been cut have gone to the oats and corn. The oats are too far advanced for them to do any damage, but the email corn will suffer. SUICIDE AT OTTAWA. Roy Stiles Takes Carbolic Acid Feared He "Was Going Insane. Ottawa, Kas., June 18. Roy Stiles, a young; man about 25 years of age, com mitted suicide here Saturday by drink ing carbolic acid. Young Stiles was unmarried and lived with his parents. Mr. and Mrs. David Stiles, on South Cedar street. Both the father and son were engineers at the Excelsior flouring mills here, the son working on the night shift. Young Stiles' friends have noticed of late that at times his mind seemed unbalanced and a note found on the table in his room bears out the theory that Stiles was insane. It read: "I feel that my brain Is going. The rest seems to be blocked. Death is preferable to this. The ministers of this town and other towns ought to be hung. They have been talking about me. They will be hung if I have the power." Stiles was found in his room dead, beside an empty vial which had con tained carbolic acid. On a table were his insurance policies, one In the New York Life for $10,000 and one in the F. A. A. for $2,000. He was a graduate of the Ottawa high school and was con sidered an exemplary young man. It was rumored here today that Stiles had been playing on 'change lately and had lost heavily. PLEAD WITH PROF.

In the district court one day last . week there were three juries locked up and another in the box at the same time, which is cer tainly a record breaker. Montgomery county furnishes more business than both Labette and Cherokee, which three counties comprise the Eleventh judicial district, and every term there are sever al cases left over that cannot be tried for want of time. This state of affairs has existed for several years, but Judge bkidmore is determined to get caught up. He has assigned 59 cases for trial The majority of persons upon reaching middle age and past find their blood becomes weak and thin, and diseases that were casuy comrouea in earner ore begin to aiiect the constitution. 1 ' Those predisposed t "V J'- . - o-.o. ouHigmcu!, .IW iln- " 13 not only W ''"f, f if?- rCTV.1 V-C .,.i.

Fourth Assistant Postmaster General Bristow, acting di rector of posts in Cuba, says he will pro bably complete his special work in con nection with the department so as to be able to leave the island June 23. He has decided upon a definite plan of reorgani zation, reducing the salaries paid to of ficials to a level with those paid in the Fnited States. The reorganization of these offices will effect a saving of $11,700 a year and pos sibly more, when the inspectors shall have completed their investigations. The greatest saving, however, will be effected in the smaller offices, where large salaries have been paid, irrespec tive of the amount of business done. Radical changes will be made in many of these, especially where Americans have been employed, and where salaries ranging from $1,000 to $1,400 are beyond what the receipts justify. Two hundred and eighty of these small offices will be reorganized, with a total annual saving of $39,000, making the total for the is land $50,000. This amount .added to re ductions formerly made, gives a grand total of $110,000. In 1SS9, miscellaneous expenses amounted to $50,000. Mr. Bristow be lieves they can be covered with less than $20,000. For instance, printing and stationery last year cost $30,000, where as, they should not have cost more than $10,C00. In many cases bills were paid twice. Furniture last year cost $20,000. In ordinary years the- figures for that item would not exceed $5,000, and possi bly fall beneath that sum. There was also an expenditure of $16,000 for per diem allowances for employes. This will be entirely done away with. Beginning with the fiscal year Julv 1, tnere snouia oe a saving or $180,000. De ducting from this, $20,000 for the addi tional transportation of mails, there should be left a net reduction of $160,000. Mr. Bristow believes that reductions in other quarters can be made, thus mak ing the service as nearly self-supporting as possioie. last year tne gross ex penditures were $612,000 and the gross receipts uu.uuu. costal receipts now amount, at a fair average, to $1,000 a day and the gross receipts for the vear should be $365,000. or $115,000 more than C. W. F. Neely reported. W. J. BUYAN'S PORCH. He Writes About It as an Illustration of the National Convention. Norwalk, Ohio, June 18. The Huron county Democracy at its recent conven tion sent William J. Bryan a message, congratulating him on building a front porch to his Lincoln residence, and hoped that it would prove a mascot in the coining campaign. Today the fol lowing reply from Bryan was received: I am in receipt of your favor com plimentary to my porch. I am obliged to you for your friendly interest. The porch was built as I hope the Kansas City platform will be. It was simply an enlargement of the old porch." FIRST CUBAN ELECTION. Results at Polls Heard by Natives With Seemingly Little Interest. Havana, June 18. General Alejandro Rodriguez, nationalist, was elected mayor of Havana, polling 13,073 votes, against 6.034 east for Senor Estrada Mora, independent. The total vote fell about 4,500 below the registration. Reports from every part of the island go to show that perfect order prevailed at the polls. ot a shot was fired, nor was there any sign of disturbance any where. To an American observer of the elec tion here it seemed as if the people re garded the whole matter with absolute indifference. There was not even a crowd in waiting to hear the result de clared.

Contest Feature of Programme Was Abandoned. EVERY ONE WAS MERRY Marshall's Band Furnished an Interesting Concert. The Occasion Was a Pronounced Social Success. A large number of Germans from dif ferent towns over the state were here yesterday attending the fourth annual Saengerfest which was held in the Tur ner garden under the direction of the Arion society of this city. The garden was filled all day long and although there was singing, there was no contest, they simply gathered to have a good social time and they had it. During the afternoon a concert was given by Marshall's band and in the evening there was music and a general good time. There are no people on the earth who can have as much real enjoy ment when they get together as the Germans, and their Saengerfest thor oughly demonstrated this yesterday. The original idea was to have singing contests between the societies of the dif ferent towns, but this was abandoned because it required too much time and did not promise to be a success. Saturday night a reception was given the visiting members in Arion hall and the seating capacity was taxed to its limits. Speeches were made and songs were sung by the members of the dif ferent societies. The local society fur nished refreshments in large quantities and every one seemed to enjoy the even ing. As is usual on such occasions ad the songs and refreshments were in German. The Saengerfast was a suc cess both socially and financially. ROBBED BY FOOTPADS. A. E. Tonsley Held Up v Negroes in Daylight. by A E. Tousley who lives at 172 Twiss avenue and s employed at the Santa Fe lumber yard, was held up Saturday evening by two negroes and was re lieved of $21 in cash. Mr. Tousley left his home about 8 o'clock in the evening and started to go down town to make a few purchases. He had gone but a short distance and was just opposite Taylor's nursery when he saw two negroes approaching him. As it was not yet dark no thought of a hold-up entered his mind but as he stepped to the side of the walk to allow them to pass they both drew revolvers and ordered him to hold up his hands which he did. Th3 larger of the footpads said to the other as he took his pistol and leveled both at Mr. Tousley: "Go through his clothes, Jim." It took but an instant to do. the work and then they ordered him to go back the way be had come. He did so but soon turned round and watched them as they went away. He then followed them to the old beer garden on Jefferson street where he lost them. Mr. Tousley describes the larger one as a man weighing about 200 pounds with a scar on the left cheek under the eye. The other was a man weighing about 140 pounds, but Tousley could not give a close description or mm as ne said unless they bad some mark they all looked alike. ELEVATOR IN RUINS.
