AN IDEAL CLIMATE.
The first white man to set foot on
Utah soil, Father Silvestre Velez de
Escalante, who reached the GREAT
SALT LAKE on the 23rd day of Sept.,
1776, wrote in his diary: "Here the cli
mate is so delicious, the air bo balmy,
that it is a pleasure to breathe by day
and by night." The climate of Utah
is one of the richest endowments of
nature. On the shores of the Great
Salt Lake especially and for fifty
miles therefrom in every direction
the climate of climates is found. To
enable persons to participate in these
scenic, and climatic attractions, and to
reach the famous HEALTH, BATH

SPORTING HEWS.
V 1. -
Two Clubs Cling to the Top in
the National League.
Philadelphia and Brooklyn Can
not Be Shaken Off.
BOSTON CLIMBING UP.
St. Louis is the Disappointment
of the Season.
But the Club nas Had the Worst
of Luck Lately,
Philadelphia and Brooklyn have
shown thus far that. In playing strength
they are superior to the other six clubs
oJ -the National League.- Of the two,
Philadelphia is entitled to a trifle more
credit, not because of any particular
display of better baseball strategy; but
for the reason that the team, crippled
by the absence of its second baseman,
one of the best of the National League
players, has fought pluckily against
odds and held its own.
Of the' other league nines Boston cer
tainly deserves the most-praise. At the
beginning of the year the former cham
pions played in a dull, listless manner
that speedily put them at the bottom
and kept them there for more than
three weeks. With the advent of hot
weather and a return to the little 2x4
patch that answers for a ball park in
Boston, the team representing the Hub
buckled down to hard work, and, aided
by a little luck, pushed its way steadily
toward the top until it is now in third
place.
The most disappointing of all the
league nines Is St. Louis. The team,
however, has a fairly good excuse for
its poor position in the race, owing to
the injuries received, not only by one,
but by four of the best men enrolled.
Constituted of players who are not only
Individually strong, but who should
play good ball together, the St. Louis
nine was expected to finish at least
third in the race and appeared to-have a
fair chance to tight for first place with
JirooKlyn, .Philadelphia or any other
nine that proved itself to be of class. St.
Louis has a chance to get back to the
top, out It will take the most persist
ent effort, and no small share of good
luck, in the face of the excellent work
Delng done by the other nines of the
league.
tor at least 36 hours it anneared ns
if the New York nine had annroached
something like a consistent standard of
work. With Smith In right field and
three pitchers of at least average ability
the team played well asalnst St. T.riiis
and even better against Philadelphia.
Then on its return home it played list
lessly against Boston and lost three
games, not by Indifferent field work, but
uy ausoiuteiy useless work with the bat
Possibly the New York air had a brac
ing effect upon the Boston pitchers In
any event they fooled the New York
batters so effectuallv that th

three games played.
COMISKEYS TEAM.
Some of the Reasons Why the Chicago
Club ia Leading American League.
Chicago, June 28. Comiskey's White
Stockings are now in the lead in the
American league race. The Chicago men
nave passed the Hoosiers. who are badly
handicapped by the absence of Hartzell
and Seybold.
There is little wonder that Comiskey's
Y;amT13J leahng the bunch. In Hoy, Bro-
It- Pad.den, LH.wd, Sugden. Hartman and
others he has men on his pay roll of Na
tional league calibre. Hoy and Brodie
are outfielders of the sensational order,
and Comiskey knew what he was about
when he signed them. Hoy is said to re
ceive the same salary that h4 got In
Louisville, which was $2,100 for the season.
1 his is more salary than any outfielder
on the Cincinnati National league team
receives. Brodie gets the same salary, or
more, than he received at Baltimore. In
fact, his salary is about the same as
Hoy s. Both men get more for the sea-
?" i.J1 any of the outer gardeners of
the Reds.
There are few outfielders in the country
.1 fjcel either Hoy or Brodie in the
outfield. Comiskey mada a good invest
ment when he stretched the salary limit
and signed them. Both men are doing
their share to bring people out to see
the games at Comiskey's park. During
the season Hoy and Brodie will get line
hits that some National league outfielders
could not get under. It. would not be
surprising to see them both back in the
major organization next year. Tom Daly
was resurrected at Milwaukee, in the
Western league, and now he is plaving
second base in fine style for the "best
baseball club in the world. Because a
man is allowed to drift to a minor league
is not always a sign that he is "all out "
Hoy and Brodie are exceptions to the rule
the same as Tom Daly. Bill Hotter was
allowed to get away from Pittsburg, and
now is pitching fine ball for Cleveland
and it is acknowledged in Pittsburg that
his release was a managerial mistake.
Dick Padden is a better second baseman
than some of the men plaving the bag in
the National league. He takes long
chances to win. runs the bases well, and
is a hard worker and hustler for his
team. New York has never been able to
replace Fred Hartman at third. With
such players it is no wonder that Com
iskey's team is In the lead. The White
Stockings could come pretty near putting
it on Hart's National leaguers in a post
season series. Jim Hart would doubtless
arrange such a series if it were not for
the fear of showing up his big leaguers
Such a series of (fames would no doubt
draw well in the Windy City.
A THRILLING RACE.
Advance Guard Beats Sam Phillips
by a Head at Chicago.
Chicago, June 28. The attraction at
the park was the meeting between Ad
vance Guard and Sam Phillips in a
handicap at a mile and a sixteenth. It
was claimed the heavy track beat both
of these colts in the Derby. The track
was fast and the youngsters had a bat
tle royal. Brutare made the Dace to ths
stretch and then Sam Phillips went to
the front and looked like a sure winner
at me eigntn post, but VHtatoe brought
Advance Guard up next to the rail nrl
although Burns made the hole just as
small as he dared. Advance Guard
squeezed through and in a terrific drive
won by a head. The race appears to
Indicate that the colts are about evenly
matched up to a mile and a sixteenth,
but that Advance Guard is the better at
a turtner distance.

Jockey club has failed to get a special

with $5,000 added, at a mile and a quar

it did create some surprise, in view of
the fact that trainer Brossman was so
anxious to get into the special race
between Ethelbert and Jean Beraud.
Brossman later stated that he had a
good reason for not entering Imp. The

where she can run with 113 pounds, and
Brossman thinks she will win this race
sure. If she was to be entered in the

Baseball Notes.
The Boston management is said to have
an eye on Smoot the new outfielder of
the W orcester team.
Brooklyn has been outbatted, but has
outneiaoa Its opponents.
Piatt has been a rank failure for tho
Phillies this season.
Katoll, pitcher for Comiskey's team
bears watching. He has been twirling In
shvit-out games ad libitum, and is show
ing wonderful improvement in his work
over what he did while with the Chicago
National leaguers last campaign.
The Brooklyns are moving away from
the bunch. Buck Ewing predicted that
Hanlon's team would win the flaz with
fully 25 games to spare. Looks like Buck
knew what he was talking about.
Philadelphia has the same old affliction
weakness in the pitcher s box. No mat
ter how well a team hits it should be
well supplied with good twirlers.
The absence of Kinmett Heidrick for
the season will, badly cripple St. Louis.
With this great young plaver out of the
game the chances of the Tebeau-McGra w
combination finishing high up in the race
are materially lessened.
Garvin, of Chicago, and Scott, of the
Cincinnatis, are regarded as two of the
best young pitchers in the league.
New York is said to intend securing the
services of Pitcher Pittenger. of Boston.
He is on the market for farming purposes.
There have been 42 pitchers taking part
in the league games up to date. This is an
average of five to each team.
Foster, the New York outfielder, has
been recalled, to act as general utilitv
man in the place of Frisbie. who has been
awarded to Cleveland by the board of
arbitration.
AVillie Keeler has the credit of being the
coolest headed man in the whole league
wnne on oases.
It is said that tiarlv" everv nitcher In
the league is adopting the underhand de
livery wnicn jyicGinnity nas used so
effectively.
Big Bill Phillips is in good condition
again, and expects to be able to take his
regular turn in ttvbx from now on. He
and Scott and KSnn will likely do the
bulk of the twirling against the eastern
teams during the games at home for f the
teos. ...
Pitcher George Eneel. of the Hamilton
team, has been asked for his terms by
the Minneapolis team of the American
league. He has been recommended to
Manager Walter Wilmot by W. R, John
son, secretary of the American league
and brother of President Ban Johnson or
that organization. -
The loss of Frank Chance, Chicago's
promising receiver, laid low by a -collision
at the plate with little Jimmy Barrett, of
the Reds, in Sunday's game, is going to
cripple Tom Loftus' brigade, especially
when it is rememDerea mat Jtsnciget"

The Twine Plant at the Peni
tentiary Closed Down.
There Is Now 30,000 Worth
of Goods Stacked Away.
CASH SALES WANTED.
Farmers Could Buy Trust
Twine on Credit.
Said Not to Have Been as Good
an Article Either.
Leavenworth, June 28. The peniten
tiary twine plant has closed down and
will make no more twine.
There are two reasons for closing the
plant, and the main one is that a large
amount of twine remains unsold. There
is about 300,000 pounds, or nearly $30,
000 worth, of twine stacked up in the
warerooms. The second reason is that
the price of raw material is very high
at present, and the chances are that it
will fall within a couple of months.
All wheat binding twine made from
now on has to be carried over until next
season, and should the price of raw
material decrease the state would suffer
a loss by buying at this time.
The making of twine at the peniten
tiary has proved beneficial to the far
mers of Kansas, but so far it has not
been very profitable to the state. Kan-
sa wheat raisers have been able to get
their twine made from two to five
cents a pound cheaper than the twine
trust intended to sell it for. The trust
twine finally came down to penitentiary
prices, and cuts were made on botn
sides.
A strong fight was made against the
penitentiary twine on the part of the
twine trust. All kinds of untrutniui
stories were told about the size of the
balls, shortage in length of twine to
the rjound and that it cloeeed the ma
chinery of binders. These stories tended
to retard the sale. The penitentiary
twine had to be paid for when ordered
and as many implement dealers sold
on credit this also retarded the sale of
the prison twine.
So far as the sale of twine in Kansas
was concerned it turned out fairly well.
The officials can not sell large quanti
ties, as they expected, in Iowa, Nebras
ka and the Dakotas, owing to the fail
ure of the wheat crop in the states
north of here. There is a good wheat
crop in southern Nebraska and much
twine has been shipped into this terri
tory, but none has gone to the North
west wheat growing country.
THE CONVICTS' FOURTH.
Prison Minstrels Will Perform and a
Special Dinner Will Be Served.
Leavenworth. Kan.. June 28. The
convicts in the Kansas penitentiary
will have a lolly time on the Fourth of
Jully even if they cannot shoot off fire
crackers. The program was prepared
yesterday by Warden Tomlinson, Dep
uty warden xnompsim ana apLiun
McFarland. Breakfast will be served
late, at a "fashionable hour," as they
term it, and the 1,020 convicts will sit
down to hot rolls with butter, bacon
and coffee with cream and sugar. Din
ner will be served about 3 o'clock in the
afternoon and the bill or fare will be:
Roast ham, brown potatoes, new cream
potatoes, beets, green peas, mince pie,
cream jumbles, bananas, oranges and
lemonade. This will be the last meal
of the day and each prisoner will be
permitted to take an extra pie, and
several bananas and oranges to eat
while in his cell listening to concert
music in the evening.
During the morning all the prisoners
will appear in the chapel to see the
exhibition of the "Kansas State Peni
tentiary Minstrels," an organization
that has been preparing for the occa
sion for more than three months. All
the actors are prisoners. There will be
buck and wing dancing, Nick Carter, a
comic prisoner, in some of his late spe
cialties, a farce, "The Doctor and As
sistants," "The Fast Mail Between
Kansas Citv and Lansing," and "The
Fancy Ball." There will be plenty of
music, as prisoners win sing Jerusa

"Whitewashed Army of the Lord,"
"Hook and Ladder Route" and "I'll Be
Happy When My Baby Comes to

and "Brother Gardner's Lecture" by
"Jim" Green promise to take well with
the audience. The clapping of hands
and stamping of feet will be allowed,

M'PHERSON OUT OF DEBT.
Has Recently Built a New Court
House and JaiL
McPherson, June 28. This county is
entirely free from debt and it has as
fine a court house and jail as there is
in western Kansas. They were recent
ly built but are paid for.
Harvey is the only adjoining county
that can boast of not owing anyone a
cent. Rice county has a bonded indebt
edness of $102,000, Marion county $318,
000. Saline county $253,000 and Reno
county $362,000. From a comparison of
these figures it will be easily seen that
McPherson county is far ahead of the
average of her neighbors.
STAY AWAY FROM SALINA.
Chicago Firm Abandons Its Intent. on
of Locating in Kansas.
Salina, June 28. A telegram from W.
W. Watson, representative of the Du-rand-Kasper
Grocery company, who is
now in Chicago, states that that firm
will withdraw its proposition for the es
tablishment of a wholesale house here
owing to the fact that they do not wish
to begin business with a law suit, which
they would be compelled to do In order
to obtain the bonus offered by the coun
cil, as an injuction has been served to
prevent the council from allowing the
money. It is hardly probable that they
will locate anywhere else in Kansas.
TROUBLESOME TRAMPS
Have a Battle With, a Freight Train
Crew Near Salina.
Salina. June 28. A crew of a west
bound Missouri Pacific freight train had
a desperate encounter with tramps
Wednesday afternoon six miles east of
Salina. The tramps, 12 in number,
boarded the train and insisted on riding
notwithstanding the conductor's orders
to stay off. The train was finally stop
ped and the hoboes ordered off and tw o
negroes refused. The conductor again
ordered them off and was struck a ter
rible blow on the right side of the head
with a pair of brass knuckles, knocking
him down and cutting his face in three
places. The train crew captured the ne
gro that had struck the conductor and
gave him a good thrashing and let him
go.
This is only one of a number of times
that train crews have been troubled
with tramps who are bound for western
Kansas.
A TRIP TO PARIS.
Editor Howe Tells How Expensive it
Is For Two.
From the Atchison Globe.
Answer to a correspondent: A round
trip ticket from Atchison to Paris costs
from $150 to $600. You can go from
Atchison to Paris and return very com
fortably for $150, which would mean
second class on a fast ship; Second
class on a steamship is very comforta
ble; almost as comfortable as first class.
TwoAtchison men recently spent fifteen
days in Paris, and did not stint them
selves particularly. They employed a
guide, and rode a good deal in cabs,
in order to get about quickly. During
the fifteen days they spent $200 between
them. A trip to Paris lasting five weeks,
which would mean fifteen days at the
exposition, would cost from $300 up.

Ottawa, June 28. A few days ago two
young men who gave their names as
Haines and Cook appeared in Ottawa

proposition to canvass the county for
subscriptions. Their proposition was
accepted by the Republican-Times, A.
P. Elder's paper, and the men went to
work. Today Frank Hay, of Norwood,
came In and swore out a warrant for
the two men charging them with having
