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.

THE ABBOT TO BE SOU.
Kiflg of Trotters Will Be Auctioned

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,

S125.000. This sum was paid for Bell

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.

STILL AFTER JEFFRIES.
Corbett Says the Champion's Talk of
McCoy is Ridiculous.
New York. Oct. 13. James J. 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.

"Bug" Holliday a Benedict
Cincinnati, O., Oct. 13. Cupid put
"Bug" Holliday on Hymen's score card
over a year ago, and the secret has been
well kept ever since. 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. " HOD " LAWRENCE COMING.

To Recent Questions Asked bj
the Democratic Candidate.
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

Surgical Operations For Cure of Piles
Discarded by Best Medical
Authorities.
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,

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

evitably reminded of the first expansion
of the United States. It was a hundred

Rogers Clark and his troop of riflemen,
joined by some of the old French

garrison to surrender and added what is
a portion of the state of Indiana to the
American union. 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. Right from the be
ginning we have had people who were
afraid whenever we started to expand.
"There were men on, the Atlantic toast
at the end of the eighteenth century who
said that it meant ruin to have the OIJo
valley admitted into the union, and then
they said that it meant ruin to take in
the territory beyond the Mississippi. Six
years ago our opponents held that it
was the undoing of the people to take in
Hawaii, and now they are saying th
name thing when we plant the flag in
the Philippines. But the flag has never
come down, and what is more, gentle
men, our opponents will gradually be
come accustomed to it. The Democracy
always has difficulty in catching up.
Mr. Bryan has just learned, thirty-five
years after the rest of us. that Abraham
Lincoln was right In 1S64. If ha lives
ns long as I hope he will, for I wish him
well in private life, I have no doubt
that in YMo he will realize that McKin
ley was entirely right In 1S0X"
