2 SPORTING -HEWS. Football Situation at K. Suddenly Changes. U. Petition to Team is Signed by 400 Students. READY FOR THE WORK. SeTeral Members of Old Team "Will Return. 3Ieehan "Makes Up" Studies and Will Play Center. Tjwrenoe. Kan., Oct. IX The football situation at the university has taken a de cilii ehajiee for the better and though there was doubt whether even half of the men would stay with the team, and It was feared that the presidents' agree ment had killed football at the univer sity for this season, tt lease, the events that have transpired since fail to show that there is danger of any thing- of the kind, and the. Indications now axe that the Payhawkers will meet the Tigers on Thanksgiving day with a team that will be prepared to uphold the former records cf Kansas university. A petition was circulated among the students yesterday, wnicn reao: -FOOTBALL. TEAM OF 1S00." 'V are with you. We recognize your misfortuntes and appreciate your tntiicui lies. but a know Kansas university his grir and we believe in you. "We expect you to continue to represent lis on me jeriairon. 'Ye oromisa von our loyal and enthusi stic support, whether in victory or de tent. Bv noon over 400 had Fiened the petition nnd there is no doubt that almost all of th students will do so before morning. The majority of the team were back at The training table this noon and were ret:dv to betrin reirular practice acain. Probably one of the most effective causes which helped to restore confidence to the men was the receipt by the man s?ment of letters from several of the old men of the lat two seasons, announc i.iK their intention of returning: to the uni versity and adding their strength to the team. Among: those heard Irom was lo(kberaer of Leavenworth, who played tackle- in 'P. and who is reputed to be .r.e i!t the Dest tackles in tne west, tie weighs ls5 pounds, an dwill add greatly to the strength of the line. His brother, who is also a. heavyweight, will probably be here in the near future and make the team as guard. (aviii irom Eelo'.t, who played end on the team last year, has written that he will be here, and will probitbly be played in his old position. Meehan, who was unable to get on the team on account of being conditioned in funics, has succeeded in making up the work, and will play his old position aa center. Iong. the Coffeyville man, who was call ed home shortly after his entrance here this year, will be in school again by the tirst of the year. He is the man whom Tost called the "wonder" of his Coffev team, which he coached after the end of the season of K. U. Clyde Alphin. the heavyweight pitcher f-f Inst year's ball team, will also b back tmd will probably make the team. THE ABBOT TO BE SOU. Kiflg of Trotters Will Be Auctioned 0E New York, Oct. 13. For the first time in the history of harness racing the king if trotters is to be put up at public auction and sold to the highest bidder. The Abbot. 2:081i. the great horse that will ko into the records as the fastest trotter of the century. 13 to pass under the hammer at Madison Square garden luring the week following the National Horse show. This surprising announcement was made today by "Ed" A. Tipton, of the Fasifr-Tipton company, who has just returned from Buffalo, after makinsr a contract with C. J. and Harry Hamlin to sell fifty trotters and pacers from the vamous Village Farm. C. J. Hannin. the veteran breeder of The Abbot, has refused many tempting offers for his champion trotter since the campaign opened. A Boston horseman offered t-o,-O00 for the gelding to drive on the road, according to reports, which was refused. SScarcely less surprising than the pro posed sale of The Abbot is the announce ment made by Mr. Tipton that Lord Terby. 2:07, is to be included in the Vil lage Farm consignment to the garden pale. Not a few good judges of horse Jlesh believe the Mambrino King gelding is a faster trotter than The Abbot, and that in a year or two he will send the record still nearer the two-minute goal. "What will The Abbot bring under the hammer?" is a question that is likely to keep. horsemen talking from this time on until the champion is sold. The highest price for which any trotter has et been sold under the hammer is $51, r00. Marion was sold at private sale for S125.000. This sum was paid for Bell Hoy. 2:19i4. the full brother to the sire of The Abbot, about ten years ago. ST. I.0TTIS BALL PLATERS. They Will Scatter After Sunday's Game. St. Louis, Oct. 13.

Paris and other European cities before returning home. "Cy" Young goes back to the seclusion of his Ohio homestead: Jimmy Hughey to Cold tvater, Mich., and Bert Jones to Pueblo, Colo. Jones has an offer to coach the college team at Golden, and will likely accept it. It pays well and will give the crack southpaw two months' valu able wort in. the early spring. ABE NOW DIVORCED. American League Decides to Out Loose From Major Organization. Chicago, Oct. 13. The magnates of the American Baseball league at their meet ing here yesterday took a decided step in the direction of independence from the National league by declaring they would no longer countenance "the farm ing" system now in vogue between the major1 and minor leagues. The baseball leaders decided that henceforth no "American league player will be farmed to a minor club, and ao National league club will be permitted to "loan" its play ers to an American league team. Reso lutions were passed ratifying the deal which gives Pitcher Koscoe Miller at Detroit and Outfielder "Topsey" Hartzel of Indiananolis to the Chicago National league club. Hartzel has been playing with Cincinnati. There was further dis cussion in regard to dropping Kansas City and other American league towns from the present circuit and the taking in cf Baltimore and Washington and Manning of Kansas City was assured that his team would be located in a sat isfactory city. Resolutions were also ador-ted after considerable discussion limiting the number of players of each team to four teen. By this arrangement foul pitchers and two catc"- .-3 will probably compose the batter; strength, of each team. Y ANGER VS. SULLIVAN. Featherweights Will Do Battle In Chicago Next Week. Chicago. Oct. 13. The match between Benny Yanger, the "Tipton Slasher," and Tommy Sullivan, of Brooklyn, was clinched yesterday when the eastern featherweight's forfeit of S250 for weight and appearance arrived. This match is to be decided at the Star theater a week from last night, and will be at the featherweight limit, 122 pounds. The two boys are of the few who claim to be featherweights and can do this weight, and the winner will be a fair kind of representative to pit against anybody in the country at that figure. Sullivan bears a bright reputation and Yanger has never been defeated as yet. The little local knocker-out aspires for high honors this winter, and if success ful with Sullivan will stand ready to meet anybody in the country for the featherweight title. The winner of the Sullivan-Yanger fracas and the winner of tonight's battle between "Young Mowatt" and "Buddy" Ryan have been promised a match by Manager Carroll, to take place two weeks after the former bout.

Corbett has not yet given up hope of getting on a match with Jim Jeffries and has made another offer to the champion. When Corbett read the champion's reply to his challenge today instructing him to go fight McCoy again he laughed and said that he would give the champion a chance to show his generosity. Later in the day the former champion sent a telegram to the Californian stat ing that he would fight him instead of McCoy and turn over the entire receipts to the Galveston sufferers. It is not money that he is after, Cor bett says, but just a chance to meet the big boilermaker again in the ring. The ex-champion, in speaking of Jeffries' an swer, said that it was ridiculous and that Jeffries' only object in mentioning McCoy was to avoid a meeting with him. MANKATO COURSING.

It was in August, 1S99, while the Reds' old center fielder was at Niagara Fails, that he crossed th river to the Canadian shore and was there wedded to Miss May C. Rich, one of Cincinnati's popular young school teachers, who was enjoying her vacation at the Falls at that time. As Miss Rich the young wife continued her duties all last year at theTwentieth district school. When the recent vacation days began she revealed the truth to her parents, and now it has became public. Holliday was a member of the famous Goldsby'a Giants of Topeka. A BRIGHT IDEA But It Cost a Cotton Sealer Five Thousand Dollars. New York, Oct. 13. Gustav Eckstein, a New York representative of a Sa vannah, Ga., wholesale cotton house, and also one of the partners in it, is trying to find out what has become of J5.000 which he claims was in an en velope sent by express marked $5,000, but said to have contained double that sum when it was dispatched. On be ing opened at its destination only $5,000, it is declared, was forthcoming. One day last week Mr Eckstein went to the Central National bank where he is a de positor and drew a check for $10,000, asking Cashier Young for bills of large denomination. He was given nine one thousand dol lar bills and two five thousand dollar bills. Then he asked the cashier to have them put in a large envelope, as he wanted to send the money by express. This was done and the parcel handed to him. Then, according to the story told by the cashier, the cotton mer chant took a pen and marked the en velope $3,000. That done, he returned it to the cashier and requested him to forward it to Savannah along with the rest of the bank business. The envelope was directed to Eckstein's brother, who is at the head of the Savannah house. Mr. Young took it and Mr. Eckstein left the bank. At the close of business Eckstein's package marked $5.0o0 was taken to an office of the Adams Express company by a messenger of the bank. A receipt was issued for it as marked, and it was forwarded together with the other pack ages of money that had come from, the same bank. Nothing was heard of the matter un til late Tuesday night and then Gustav Eckstein got a telegram from his brother in Savannah saying that the envelope had been received but it con tained only $5,000. It is said that Gustav Eckstein had written his brother of the transaction and that the envelope would contain $10,000 Mr. Eckstein has put the ma'tter into the hands of his at torney.

ASKS A FEW HIMSELF. Wants to Know If Bryan Will Pay Bonds In Silver Or Will Refase the Electoral Tote of North Carolina. Evansville, Ind., Oct. 13. Governor Roosevelt conoluded his Indiana tour last night, making two speeches in this city, and speaking In both instances to large audiences. Arriving here at 4:30, the governor dined in his private car, remaining there until shortly before 8 o'clock, at which time he was escorted to the St. George hotel, where he re viewed a parade given in his honor. From the reviewing stand he was driven to Evans hall, where he made a reply to a speech delivered yesterday by Mr. Bryan. From the hall he went to the Grand opera house and addressed the second audience, constituting the eleventh which has heard him speak since he left Indianapolis in the morning. The day was characterized by large crowds and much enthusiasm, in which respect Evansville was not lacking. In his speech at Vincennes, Governor Roosevelt delved into history to show that through expansion that part of the state of Indiana in which Vincennes is situated was added to the dominion of this government. Governor Roosevelt's address at Evansville follows: "Mr. Bryan yesterday attempted to answer what I said about his attacks on the United States army. He says that the president in his message of De cember, 1898, asked for an army of 100,- 000 men, two months before there was any war in the Philippine Islands. He asks: 'Does Mr. Roosevelt know this?' "Of course I know it; and let me also add that Mr. Bryan ought to know, what every little school boy knows, that at the very time in December the Fili pino insurgent army was threatening our outpost and a collision was imminent any moment. Aguinaldo at that time was trying to organize the remnants of the Spanish army in conjunction with his own army in a war against us. T ie bill in which the increase in the army was provided itself explicity set forth the conditions in the Philippines as, a reason for keeping the army up. Every intelligent observer knew there would be trouble in the Philippines if the treaty was confirmed. "The bill for the temporary increase which Mr. Bryan apparently seeks to persuade his hearers is a permanent in crease was introduced by Senator Cock rell of Missouri, a Democratic supporter of Mr. Bryan, and the bulk of the patri otic Democrats in both houses voted for it. For at that time the Kansas City pitaform had rot sought to make the dishonor of the Hag a national issue and the Democratic conventions in Colorado and California were in their platforms calling for the retention of the Philip pine Islands The record therefore shows that this present temporary army of 65,000 regulars and 3t,Q0O volunteers was called for in December because of the threatened trouble in the Philippines. Any statesman with the slightest pre tention to the name could not but see that this trouble was threatening and would have been criminally derelict in his duty to the nation had he failed to provide for it. The trouble was certain to arise, having in view the attitude of Aguinaldo, unless we rejected the treaty, and indeed the outbreak occurred just before the treaty was accepted. When Mr. Bryan did his part in working for the acceptance of the treaty by the sen ate he stopped himself from any right to criticise the carrying out of the pledges which he said must be made in advocat ing that treaty. "Now I have answered Mr. Bryan's question on this point, as I will gladly answer any question he can- put to me. Now let him show equal frankness and readiness in answering these questions: L "If elected, Mr. Bryan, will you pay the obligations of the nation in gold or in silver? 2. "Will yon refuse to accept the elec toral votes of North Carolina, because obtained without consent of the govern ed, and will you now at once denounce the action of your party associates who helped to nominate you for establishing by the constitution in North Carolina the doctrine that one man is good enough to govern another without his consent? 3. "Will you denounce your party as sociates in congress who voted on June 1 last that the national government should not be given the power to control trusts? You say that all trusts are bad. Will you denounce as hypocritic you party associates who supoprt you on that platform, and yet themselves are beneficiaries in the cotton bale, whisky and ice trusts? This question is not to be met by saying that there are trusts in which Republicans are interested. The point is a question of good faith, or hypocrisy. If all trusts are as bad as you represent them what right have you to be supported and accept the support of Senator Jones and Mr. Croker who to public denunciation of trusts add private membership in them? "Yesterday at Neilsville, Mich., Mr. Bryan propounded certain questions to the Republican party as follows: 1. Q. " 'If a trust is a good thing.why did the Republican platform denounce trusts?' A. "The Republican party denounced the evils of trusts and pointed out the way those' evils could be controlled and minimized. Any sensible man knows NERVOUS PROSTRATION is only a failure of strength.

A prominent orificial surgeon says: It is the duty of every surgeon to avoid an operation if possible to cure in any other way. This is especially true in the treatment of piles and rectal troubles because such operations are at tended with excruciating pain and se rious danger to life by collapse of the nervous system. Furthermore, operations for piles are often unsuccessful and always very ex pensive. The most advanced physicians now rise and recommend the use of astring ents, combined with healing oils of veg etable extraction, and administered in suppository form. The most widely used and best known remedy of this character is -the Pyramid Pile Cure, sold by druggists everywhere. This pile cure contains no cocaine, no opiate, no poisonous drug whatever, and a single 50 cent package in some Instances has cured cases of several years' standing. The harmless acids, astringents and oils contained in the Pyramid Pile Cure cause the blood vessels and congested veins to contract to a natural condition, the little tumors are absorbed and the cure is made without pain, inconvenience or detention from daily occupation. Being in suppository form it can be carried in the pocket, always ready for use. Ointments, salves and pills sometimes relieve piles, but they do not cure. ' The safest and surest way to cure any form of piles, itching, bleeding or protruding, is to use the Pyramid Pile Cure. B'ull sized packages at all drug stores, 50 cents. A book on cause and cure of piles mailed free by addressing Pyramid Drug Co., Marshall, Mich. that there may be evils which need cor rections and yet that this may not mean general and senseless destruction of all corporations and the conditions of our modern industrial development. 2. Q. " 'If the trusts are a bad thing why did the Republican administration allow more trusts to be organized than during all previous history of the coun try T A. "The Republican administration oid not allow more trusts to be organiz ed than during all previous history of the country. I he Standard Oil company, the American Sugar Refining company and all the other more prominent trusts came into existence long before the present administration. Moreover, Mr. Bryan knows perfectly well that the na tional government cannot prevent with its present powers the organization of these trusts and that it was the action of his own party associates in congress on June 1, last, which prevented the pas sage by congress of the constitutional amendment which would have given the national government the power sought for. 3. Q. " 'If some trusts are good and some bad, can you tell the difference be tween a good one and a bad one?' 4. Q. " 'Do you know of any good monopoly in private hands? 5. Q. " 'Do you know any man good enough to stand at the head of a mon opoly and determine the price of that which others are to use? A. "Mr. Bryan's terminology is here so loose that it is difficult to know what he means. If he uses 'trust' in the sensa of large corporations, any Intelligent man must know that there are good cor porations and bad corporations, and the difference between them can be told as readily as the difference between two wealthy private individuals. As for the monopolies In private hands, patents are such monopolies, and if Mr.Bryan means that all monopolies are bad, he means that patent laws should be abolished outright. Does he really mean this? If not, his words mean nothing. The un doubted evils connected with some par tial industrial monopolies will never be affected in the least by an opposition until dealing with them their opponents learn and practice both precision of thought and precision of statement." 6. Q. " 'Do you know of any good reason why the army should be made 100,000?' A. "Here again Mr. Bryan's lang uage is loose. If he is speaking of the present army of 65,000 regulars and 30, 000 volunteers, then every man who pos sesses an ounce of common sense, or sn ounce of patriotism must know not only that there is very good reason for hav ing had it, but no possible excuse for re fusing to have it. It has been needed in the Philippines; it has been needed in China; and only the allies of Aguinaldo and the boxers can criticise it. Half of the Democrats in congress voted for it when It was provided for. 7. Q. " 'Would you be willing to make the army 200,000, if the Republican lead era said so, or a half million, if they wanted it? A. "It is hard to believe that this question is put in good faith, for no one has dreamed of asking for any army of 250,000 or a half a million. Abraham Lincoln once had to ask for a large army and in spite of the opposition of the politicians whose political heir and assignee Mr.. Bryan is. the people gave him what he asked. No increase of the army will ever be asked for by Repub licans, save because of reasons which would satisfy the people as they were satisfied in the days of Lincoln. 8. Q. " 'What is your title to the Fili pino? Did you buy him, or did you get him by force?" A. "There is of course no title to the Filipino, save us there is a title to the inhabitants of Alaska or of the Ha waiian islands, and he was net bought save, exactly as dwellers in the Louis iana territory including what is now Mr. Bryan's own state of Nebraska, were bought by Thomas Jefferson. The Phil ippine Islands were acquired under Pres ident McKinley by treaty and purchase exactly as the Louisiana territory was acquired under Jefferson, Florida under Monroe and all the rest of the territory which we have acquired." 9. Q. " 'Do you think you can buy the right to govern people? A. "This has already been answered in my reply to No. 8. Evidently Thomas Jefferson thought that we could buy the right to go'ern the Indians of the Louis iana purchase and Andrew Jackson thought we could similarly acquire the right to govern the Seminoles of Florida. 10. Q. " 'What are you going to do with the Filipino when you get him? Are you going to kill him?' A. "We are not going to kill the Fil ipino unless he tries to kill our soldiers and he will stop trying to kill our sol diers very soon after he becomes con vinced that he will receive no further aid in the effort from the party of which Mr. Bryan is chief. As to what we are going to do with him, the answer is simple. We are going to civilize him and give him the peace, order and indi vidual liberty and gradual increase of self-government of which Mr. Bryan would deprive him for all time by turn ing him over to a syndicate o.' corrupt Chinese half-breeds and ferocious Tagal bandits." At Vincennes, Governor Roosevelt said in part: "Speaking here in Vincennes, I am in evitably reminded of the first expansion of the United States. It was a hundred and twenty-one yeirs ago that George Rogers Clark and his troop of riflemen, joined by some of the old French Creole inhabitants, forced the British JUST TWO WORDS ILL WA Eut they mean a whole lot to us, and will to you il you investigate our prices.

And, gentlemen, they did it without asking the consent of the inhabitants and much against the wiil of the British garrison, and, although Thomas Jeflerson was then guiding the councils of the nation, he did not think that an infringment of the doctrine of the consent cf the governed. We spread then because our forefathers were men and fitted to do men's work and then began the great conquest of the conti nent, which has gone on to our day, then began that movement of expansion which has always been a movement of terror to the weakling and coward and a movement of Joy to the strong men who trust in the might and righteous ness of the people.
