SPORTiflGJIEVS, Echoes of the Past Baseball Season. Events of ap Unusual Nature On the Diamond. STAB" "TWIRLING : FEAT It Was Made by Halm Who Denied Thillies a Hit. Only, One Triple Play liecorded For Season. A list of the remarkable events in a playing sense only which have taken place in the National league during the Iast season may prove of more than or dinary interest to the fana. These de tails show clearly that the pitchers had sovereignty during the year, and that fat batting- records were the exception rather than the rule. - 3S"ot one batsman managed to make six hits in a single game. Those who made five hits in one battle were eight in number Lajoie, Flick, Wolverton, Siagle, Berkley, Donlin. O'Brien and Bill Clarke. Four of the eight were Fhila delphians, and made the hits on the buzzer-haunted Quaker grounds hence a legitimate doubt as to their honesty. Many batsmen made four hits, but r.ot as many as in previous years. Those making four .hits more thas once were Lajoie, five times; Hamilton, Delehanty, Beaumont, Kitchey, Burkett, Van Hal tren and Barrett, three times; Wagner, McGann. Collins, Long, Flick, Beckley, Kelley, Siagle, Dahlen, Stahl, Daly, Green and Crawford, two times. Those who rapped out four singles just once were Jones. MeCormiek, Irwin, Dolan, Oleason, Monte Cross, Red Donahue, Powell, McFarland, Fred Clarke, Tanne bill. Ganzel, Davis, Keeler, Donovan, McBride, Strang. McGraw, Corcoran, Clements, Sullivan. Tenney, Farrell, Jennings. Lave Cross, Wallace and tsteinfeldt. The heaviest club batting of the year was done by Pittsburg. July 31; 26 hits oft Kennedy, Nopa and Howell, the Brooklyn stars. Cincinnati made 20 hits off Young and Hughey. August 20. Sep tember 12. in six innings, Boston made IS runs and 18 hits off Johnny Powell. Only one triple play is recorded. The Reds made it April 25. Nobody was guilty of live errors during the season. Clingman, Irwin, Lowe and Ritchey each made four bungles in one game. The star pitching feat of the year was achieved July 12 by Noodles Hahn, who shut out the mighty Philadelphians without a hit. One-hit shutouts were pitched by Nops, Kitson and Fraser. Two-hit whitewashes were twirled by Leever (twice), Powell, Nichols, Ken nedy and Callahan. Three-hit blanks were pitched by Chesbro, Nichols, Jones, Toung and Hawley. Four-hit shutouts were credited to Donahue, Philippe, Chesbro, Willis (twice, Powell, Leever, Griffith, Newton, Young, Kitson and Waddell. The most remarkable pitching of the season, on both sides, was that In the Chicago-Pittsburg game of June 19. won by Chicago, 1 to 0. Griffith against Waddell, Griffith fanning out " men and Waddell 12 The strike-out recrd for nine innings was achieved by Cy Young on the opening day of the year, when he fanned nine of the Pitts burgs.

Pittsburg and Brooklyn Begin a Post Season Series. Pittsburg, Pa,, Oct 16. The post ser ies of ball games between Brooklyn and Pittsburg for the world's championship and possession of a ?500 trophy cup was begun yesterday at Exposition parte in the presence of 4,000 enthusiastic fans. The series was made possible by the Chronicle-Telegraph of this city shortly after Pittsburg's phenomenal stride toward the pennant, in the latter part of the season, offering a beautiful trophy in the shape of a solid silver punch bowl to be contested for by the teams finish ing first and second, provided Pittsburg was one of them. The team winning three games out of five is to have ab solute possession of the trophy, and the gate receipts of the series will be di vided among the members of both teams who were signed before September 15. Great interest attaches to the contest, because Pittsburg has won the aeries from every team in the league except Cincinnati, and many friends think she would have won the pennant had not so many of her players been disabled toward the end of the season. The first game was won by Brooklyn with hands down. McGinnity. the "'iron man," had his opponents completely at his mercy up to the ninth inning, allow ing only three hits up to that time. In the eighth inning McGinnity was being run down by Waddell between third and home and in an attempt to dodge bis pursuer McGinnity fell, striking his tem ple hard on Waddell's knee. He was laid out for three or four minutes, but pluck ily went into the box and finished the game. In the ninth he hit a batter, gave a base on bails and two hits, saving Pittsburg a shutout. Waddell was not hit hard, but often, hits being made off him in the third inning. His support was not of the best. O'Brien and Wil liams making costly errors.

The only capital ists of the proposed baseball association live here, and a statement made by one of the angels today Indicates that they are weakening. He said: "Should the American league come to Baltimore it may find friends among the capitalists who have founded the new and independent organization. At any rate, the players have confidence in the American league, and Catcher Wiibert Robinson, of the St. Louis club, when asked about it yesterday, confessed to much respect for Ban Johnson's league. It is believed that neither he nor Captain John McGraw, of St. Louis, would ob ject to playing w-ith a Baltimore team of that organization." M. S. TJ.'S CLOSE CALL. Missouri Tigers Defeat Warrensburg by Narrow margin. Columbia, Mo., Oct 16. In the best game played so far this season the Tigers were yesterday triumphant over the Warrensburg Normal team by a score of 11 to 6. Warrensburg, how ever, has a good team and played a stiff game, Mosse, the old Kansas captain, who is coaching them, going into the game as soon as Missouri made the first touchdown. The Missouri team showed marked improvement in team work and in individual playing. The greatest im provement was in their interference. This is the first game in which Missouri has run any interference worthy of the name. X. C. MCedic3 Improve. Kansas City, Oct IS. Thirty-five to nothing tells the kind of treatment the football team from William Jewell col lege received at the hands of the Kan sas City Medics at Exposition park yes terday, afternoefh. Two weeks ago the Medics' played the same team and only defeated the collegians by 10 to 0. Since that time they have practiced daily, lining up against both the high school teams, and the game yesterday showed that they were vastly improved in their team work. Their line stood as one man, and both Pigg and Feese repeatedly broke through the Liberty line and downed their man before the interfer ence had time to form. Morley, Porter and Lewis were each good for gains nearly every time they were given the ball. Many long runs were the fea tures. Champion Checker Players. Boston, Oct. 16 The first of a series of fortv games for the checker cham pionship of the world and $2,000 a side between Charles F. Barker of this city and Richard Jordan of Edinburgh, Scotland, was opened at the American house Monday. The articles of agree ment gave the contestants a range of the. entire field of checker playing, the restrictions being according to the Stuart Jordan system. ELECTION RETURNS. Commercial Club Would TJae the Aud itorium to Receive Them. The Commercial club has written a letter to the council supplementing the request of the Republican committee for use of the Auditorium for the evening of November 6. The club proposes re ceiving the election returns in the Aud itorium and intends charging a small admittance fee, which will be turned over to the club to help in paying for the seats. SELL AT BOX OFFICE. Change In Ticket Arrangements and Gallery Entrance at Crawford. Hereafter the reserved seats for Craw ford's Opera House will be sold at the box office in the opera house.

"One day last winter a lady came to my drug store and asked for a brand of cough medicine that I did not have in stock," says Mr. C. R. Grandin, the popular drug gist of Ontario, N. Y. "She was disap pointed and wanted to know what cough preparation I could recommend. I said to her that I could freelv recommend Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, and that she could take a bottle of the remedy and after giving it a fair trial if she did not find it worth the money to bring back the bottle and I would refund the price paid. In the course of a day or two the lady came back in company with a friend in need of a cough medicine and advised her to buy a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. I consider that a very good recommendation for the remedy." It is for sale by all druggists. COLORADO FLYER. Via "Great Rock Island Route." Leaves Topeka 8:10 p. m., arriving Colorado Springs 10:35.

Kansas Millers Discuss Present Standing. Its Satisfied That It is as Good as the Best. WILL BE CHALLENGE. Northern Millers Asked to Sub mit to a Test. Take Steps to Prevent the Con founding of the Products. The Kansas Millers' association met in the parlors of the Copeland hotel Mon day afternoon. At a secret session held late in- the afternoon the question of prices was brought up and discussed. There are about 140 millers .belonging to the as sociation, including nearly all the prom inent millers in the state. Some of these millers have made rates really lower than they should to make a fair profit It was urged that in the interest of self protection some action in this respect would not be out of order. Another meeting was held last night at which the doors were closed to the public when the matter was further discussed. Owing to -the small attend ance no positive action could be taken. However, the matter may come up at subsequent meetings. The meeting yesterday afternoon was opened by .President J. 1 1. McMalr of Halstead asking the secretary to read the call, and saying: "We will be in session only a few hours and you should not be backward in introducing any busi ness which should come before the meet ing." Herbert Hackney, of the Hackney Milling company of this city, arose and explained to the members of the associ ation present the reason for the calling of this meeting and how the project which they were interested in originated. C. B. Hoffman of Enterprise is an energetic worker In the cause of setting Kansas wheat right before the world. He was the first speaker and said: "The Northwestern people have the advantage of us here in Kansas from the fact that their mills have been , in operation longer and have grown to larger proportions and being better ad vertised. While our wheat is equally as good as the Minnesota product or per haps even superior it has not been on the market so prominently as the flour from the Minnesota mills." J. E. Howard of Wichita thought that it was the duty of the members of the association while they were present to challenge the northern millers and de mand a speedy test either in public or private to prove the relative merits of the two flours, the one made from Kan sas hard wheat and the other from the wheat of the northwest. "I have no doubt," he said, "but that the test would prove beyond a question that the Kansas wheat is the superior in every way." Mr. A. Passler of the Inter-Ocean mills of this, city had a letter recently received from a miller, a friend of his in another city, in which he said that he had been grinding springwheathtretoforebut that just recently he had switched to Kansas hard wheat and that he had been plac ing it on the market in the same sacks and as the same grade of flour as the spring wheat and that the consumers had kept on using it, in blissful ignore ance, apparently satisfied. This is an other instance that goes to prove that the Kansas hard wheat is suitable to make the finest flour. F. D. Coburn said: "It is a pleasing circumstance to see the room full of gentlemen assembled here for the purpose of taking council together for the agri cultural interests of this state." Continuing, he said: "Kansas has never been appreciated, I think. The question of the large value and the im portance of our wheat crop has taken on new light within the last few months. We have every opportunity now to get all that is due us in this regard and I think it is our duty to take steps to get our dues. "There is one suggestion I do not want to forget. It seems to be a prob lem whether this hard wheat maintains its value in this climate; whether the seed that has been grown in this state for 15 years is not almost worn out. It is unquestionably true that it is best that a change in seed be made every few years. This organization should take this matter up and arrange for the bringing to this state a cargo of the best seed wheat of Russia." Secretary Smiley, of the Grain Deal ers' association, in speaking along the lines touched by Mr. Coburn, said: "This matter was first brought to my atten tion by Mr. B. Warkentine of Newton. He convinced me that it was necessary that to secure the best seed w-heat we would have to send to Russia for it. He requested me to broach the subject to every one I met who might be interest ed in it. I talked on the subject with a great many men, both dealers and grow ers and without an exception they all stood in favor of the idea of the impor tation of some seed wheat from Russia. Upon investigation I find that the cost per bushel for the importation of this wheat will be about S2.50. I have been the recipient of a great many letters from both dealers and growers from all parts of the state to keep this plan for the importation of a cargo of Russian wheat to be distributed over the state agitated. This is a vital question and demands the serious consideration of every one interested in, their line of in dustry. "It only takes a few years for grain that is planted and replanted in the same locality to deteriorate in value. I will cite one instance. Some seed wheat was taken from the northern part of this state to the southern part and planted along side a field of wheat which had been a native of that locality for a number of years. The former yielded 40 bushels to the acre while the latter only brought forth about IS bushels. And mind you this under the same cli matic conditions." Mr. H. Hackney thought that the or ganization should appoint a committee to work with a committee from the Grain Dealers association to investi gate and prod into this matter further. The plan was adopted by the body and the chair appointed B. Warkentine of Newton, C. B. Hoffman of Enterprise and Thomas Page of Topeka as the members of that committee. W. H. Barnes, of the State Horticul tural society, was present and urged-the need of the millers taking advantage of the opportunity to display and vindicate the Kansas hard wheat before the world in the Pan-American exposition which is to be held in Buffalo beginning No vember 1, 1901. The following resolution which is self explanatory was introduced and passed as amended by the committee: Whereas, It is known beyond question that certain mills of the northwest and other points are using Kansas hard wheat in the manufacture of flour which is being sold as genuine hard j spring wheat flour in' the markets of this country ana Europe, ana mat in order to. bring all hard wheat flour not made iH the northern, spring wheat sec tion into bad repute, a number of those mills have proclaimed through the ad vertising columns of certain trade pa pers that tney are not now, nor ao tney intend using any Kansas hard wheat a statement that has been disproved (as the investigation by the Topeka Capital has proven) and intended to greatly in jure the fair name of Kansas hard wheat goods which, because of their su perior Quality, are growing rapidly in favor among users of hard wheat flour in all the markets of the world, there fore, be it Resolved, By the Kansas State Mil lers" association in session at Topeka on October 15, 1W0. That the action of the northwestern millers in using our Kan sas hard wheat in the production of flour and selling the product as genu ine hard spring wheat goods, thereby trying to discredit the splendid flours made by Kansas mills from the finest hard wheat the world produces, is de ceptive and unbusinesslike: and merits the severest condemnation of the milling fraternity of Kansas as well as the pur chasers of hard wheat flour the worid over. Resolved, That the secretary of this association be and he is hereby instruct ed to send a copy of these resolutions to the secretary of each board of trade, produce exchange or chamber "of com merce in the United States where hard wheat flour is Bold, and to each like or ganization in Europe where the true merits of the splendid Kansas hard wheat flours are becoming known and appreciated. Resolved, That we heartily endorse the Kansas Semi-Centennial to be held in 1904 and pledge the aid and influence of the Kansas State Millers' association to its promotion and success. Resolved, By the members of the Kansas Millers' association, this day as sembled, That their thanks are due and are hereby heartily given to the Topeka Capital for its enterprising and mag nanimous efforts to put Kansas wheat products where they rightly belong at the head of the list in the markets of the world. Following the passing of the resolu tion the meeting was resolved into a meeting for encouragement to the finances of the Daily Capital Publishing company. The fact that the Sunday Capital of Sunday, October 28, was to be made a special wheat edition and that advertise ments from the millers were wanted was brought out. Mr. Popenoe, on behalf of the Capital, said that the paper felt deeply indebted to the association for the kindly man ner in which it had treated them. Con tinuing he said when asked concerning the prices for advertising in the special edition, that pages would be sold at the rate of $75 per page and papers would be mailed for $5 per 100. A suggestion was made that the asso ciation take one page and make it the directory of the association, giving each mill included In the association, its loca tion, officers and capacity. A. Fassler said that the millers were indebted to the Capita, and that they should not hang back but should come forward with a good stiff price for their advertisements, and that the publishing of the directory would not sufficiently reimburse the Capital company. The suggestion was then made that each miller who felt so disposed could outside of tbis take a3 much space as he desired. This plan was not adopted. Some one asked the rate for small spaces, and Mr. Popenoe, Mr. Holman and Mr. Babize left the room and a con sultation was held, which resulted in Mr. Popenoe reporting to the meeting that double-column five-inch spaces would be sold for $10. Four of these ads may be placed in two columns of the Capital and twelve in six columns. The seventh column may be divided into ads of different shape than the rest on the page but containing the same space as one of the others, which gives a total of fourteen advertisements to the page. The total sum for the page being $140. Every one present was urged to sign a contract agreeing to take the $10 space, which almost every one did within five minutes. The secretary was instructed to correspond with the other millers of the association and urge them to come, in for equal spaces. Those present at the meeting yester day afternoon were J. E.

COMING DRAMATIC EVENTS The bill at Crawford's Wednesday night will be David Higgins' southern play "At Piney Ridge." The locale of the play is amid the rugged mountains of Tennessee, and the atmospheric pos sibilities of this out of the. way section are said to be taken full advantage of by Mr. Higgin3 in the action of his drama. The roughness of the mountain life with all its undersweep of deep human ity in its simplest, yet truest moods, are depicted with a great deal of fidelity and keen insight into the true nature of the people of this out of the way sec tion. The plot is said to be rich, strong and reasonable. The characters are: said to be like the scenes simple, honest, truth-loving and rugged. The producing company is said to be good and the scenery and electrical effects novel and beautiful. Arthur Dunn, the comedian, is dis tinctly original in style and possessed of a quaint and unique personality upon the stage that peculiarly fits him for the part of Flipper in the Augustin Daly London and New Tork success, "A Run away Girl." Mr. Dunn has increased his hold upon his many admirers by his very clever and artistic performance of that role. Those who have seen this production can readily understand the many re quirements demanded of the artist who assumes the part of "Flipper," the jockey. As its name implies, he must be "nip of speech, small of stature, nimble of foot, quick of action and alert and wideawake always. He must be able to sing a song or a dozen of them, dance a jig or a reel, be quick and point ed in repartee, and conceal his identity of face, figure and speech at a moment's notice. This wonderful versatility Mr. Arthur Dunn possesses more than any artist in America. It has enabled him to score a very decided and pronounced The Kind You Have Always in use for over SO years, and -Xt sonal supervision Biuee its infancy. cc&&Z Allow no one to decel ve yon in thin.
