Echoes of the Past Baseball Season.
Events of ap Unusual Nature On
the Diamond.
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
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

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. Score:

Baltimore, Oct. 16. 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."
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
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.
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
Change In Ticket Arrangements and

It Happened in a Drug Store.
"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.

Kansas Millers Discuss
Present Standing.
Satisfied That It is as Good as
the Best.
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
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
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
Following the passing of the resolu
tion the meeting was resolved into a
meeting for encouragement to the
finances of the Daily Capital Publishing
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.

day afternoon were J. E. Howard, Wich
