PORTING NEWS. Little Mouey In Baseball This Season. Earnings of the Two Chicago Clubs Giren Out. IIAIiT'S CLUB AHEAD National League Had 248,577 Paid Admissions. American League Drew 124,000 Spectators to Games. Chicago,' OcL 20. It has been the popu lar belief among baseball fans that ihe past season has- not only proved disas trous to the Chicago National league club, hot In comparison with Comiskey's team, the local American league club has reavilv cutdrawn Mr. Hart's aggrega , (iou of baU tossers. This theory has been ,' circuiatcd widely throughout the past Bfison, every opportunity being taken to magnify or minimize the attendance, according- as the fan. favored one park or the other. This error on the part of those who es timated th6 crowds is easily explained by the difference in the seating capacity of the grand stands and bleacher on tne two fields. A crowd of 5.000 or 6.000 would not more than half fill President Hart s stands, while that many in attendance at Comiskey's plant would jam the stands and give the appearance of twice that number. To delve into the abstract figures show ing the exact numbers in attendance up m the games of the two leagues in this city wouid shatter the fond Ideas of many an enthusiastic fan. For these prove conclu sively that President Hart's team has out drawn President Comiskey's ball team two to one, despite the bad season and the poor game the National leaguers put up. In round numbers there were 124,(kO p.iid admissions to games on th; south s'de grounds this vear while there were 24.00 who paid to see the National league team in its struggles against the other seven clubs of the league. Comiskey s was the newer stand and a minor league, and naturally this result was to be anticipated. During the annual meeting of the Amer ican league last week considerable discus sion was engendered relating to the amount of money paid in to the g nertl fund for league expenses by the various clubs. James TX Burns of Detroit was . certain he had paid as much as Comiskev, and the rivalry between these Ciubs brought out a statement showing the t. p proximate attendance for each of the eight clubs during the season. Under the rules of the American league Irt per cent of each admission, average 1 at 25 cents each, is paid into the g neral fund for the purpose of defrayi g the sa1 aries of umpires, the league preside t ind other necessary officials at the lea Uc headquarters. This amounts to 2'', cnt for each admission, or .'.6o per 1C0. Tile following statement, given ut from an authentic source, gives the foliwini? amounts, in round number3, ciepos.ted by the eieht clubs for the season, and also the approximate number of paid admis sions: club. Amount. Attendance. Chicago t 3 100 124 0 0 Detroit 2 6 X I'M 000 Milwaukee 2 2t S. 0 Kansas- City 2.1t'0 84,0-0 Indianapolis 1.90 76,0 t Cievel aid 1 5"0 60.0 0 Buffalo 1.4"" 5 ,"'0 Minneapolis 1.2M 40.000 Total IIS, W0 63:.0o0 These figures were shown President H irt C'jday: "Well, 1 have only to say that those fig-ures gi to show "how far wrong the statements have been this year that Va American league has outdrawn the Na tional so much." eaid he. "1 figure hat our totals would amount to nearly o00 tXjd in attendance." Mr. Hart then had recourse to his books to hac -k up this statement and .ound a t jtal of 2IS?.r.77 paid admis.-i ns, t r an aver age of 3.551 for the seventy g.imes played on the home grounds. Seventy grimes were scheduled for the -White "Stocking to play on the south side plant, giving them an average of 1,771 paid admissions for the season. The past year has been a hard one for the National League ciubs. The Philadelphia and Pittsburg clubs were the only ones not suffering losses. ThW places Brooklyn wmonsr the losers as far aa money goes. The 248.000 paid ad missions this season have not even paid expenses of the Chicago club, f r cut of this amount comes the share of the visit ing club and the 5 per cent that club of the manr league pay into the gene al fund for league reduction. To show the difference in the expense of main aln n; the National League Chicago club and Comiskey's team, the s'atment is madi rhat tr cists Mr. Hart S1W 10 t e vr bare expenses, w hile the .Am- r c m 1- agu m ig nate counts on but 125,000 for a season.

Arlie Latham, once the star third baseman of the St. Louis club and w ho this year acted as coach for Cincinnati in a letter to a . Cincinnati friend says: , "Kindly see Groundkeeper John Schwab and ask him why my name does not appear on the reserve list of the Cincinnati club. 'I would suggest that you send some smart fellow like Tom Par rot t to see him in reference to the matter. Parrott has a foxy way of getting information and I am sure he would get to Schwab and ascertain what I am vitally interest ed in knowing. After the good record that I made in the coaching box with the Reds it seems strange that I am not retained for next year. Between you and me it looks as if some of these cut rate coachers are trying to undermine me. I don't care to mention any names but if I run across Tom Tucker or Bull Chiles they will hear from me. I have received a large number of letters from Cincinnati friends asking why my name does not appear on the reserve list, and I am anxious to know where, I stand. "Dad Clarke is anxious to take a team to Alaska this winter ami wants me to go along as the top-liner. He says that Dawson City has a club that could trim the Brooklyns in a hot series. A num ber of players have consented to make the trip, and nothing is lacking now save money to pay expenses. Dad feaya he will get that, even if he is compelled to mortgage his prospective profits on bis latest book. 'What I Said to Dan Brouthers After He Had Pasted One of Mj Outcurves Nine Miles.' He writes me that the players in - Dawson City wear snow-shoes and some great base running is witnessed daily. I showed the letter to Petle Chiles, who said: " 'Poor old Dad has either swallowed a few pills or has been reading a dream book. Write back, and tell him to get out of bed.' " OTTAWA VS. HASKELL. Two of the Strongest Teams In Kan sas to Meet Next Monday. Ottawa, Oct, 20. The slump in foot ball interest at Ottawa, which has been perceptible ever since the Ottawa-Kansas university game, scheduled for last Monday, was declared off, has taken a decided reaction. The boys are again livening up into their old form. They be lieve they have a much stronger team for opponents in next Monday's game at Lawrence than would have been the mighty jayhawkers. Monday Ottawa will meet Haskell at Ottawa and Ottawa expects the hardest game of the season with the exception of the Thanksgiving game with Wash burn. Both Ottawa and Haskell are in good form and both have been defeated but once this season,the former by K. U. by a score of 6 to 0 and the latter by Washburn. 12 to 0. Otherwise neither team has been scored against. Realizing their hard proposition, the boys w orked like beavers last Wednesday and put up one of the fastest practice games seen on the university athletic field for some time. Charles, one of the best men on the team, has been compelled by school duties to give up his position at left end. ALLEGE BTCOT OWES MONEY. Story at Morris Park That He is In Debt to Bookmakers. New York, Oct. 20. It was reported at the Morri3 Park track today that Norman Selby, better known as "Kid" McCoy, who left the city a few days ago, owes money in the ring to the ex tent of $5,000.

Excitement was fur nished in nearly every event, close fin ishes and some unexpected conclusions keeping the spectators guessing and the bookies uneasy. An accident occurred in the steeplechase event, which necessi tated the destruction of Rollins, the favorite. The horse fell over the sixth Jump, breaking his right leg at the shoulder. The accident happened in full view of the grand stand and he was taken from the field and shot. Rollins was a bay gelding, 6 years old.

In the second race, a five and a half furlong spring, a heavy play was made on Dangerfield and Oudenarde, the former going to the post a slight favorite over the latter. Dangerfield tiptoed his field and won under double wraps by. fifteen lengths from Oudenarde. " Con " McVey In Trouble. New Tork, Oct. 20.

This is the common complaint of the dyspeptic. If eating sparingly would cure dys pepsia, few would suffer from it long. The only way to cure dyspepsia, which is difficult digestion, is to give vigor and tone to the stomach and the whole digestive system. Hood's Sarsaparilla cured ths nlees of Frank Fay. 106 N. St..

Aken3 first came to this place some three mouths ago and disappeared about the time his real identity became known, and although vigilant search for him has been prosecuted by the local authorities, he was not found until yesterday. He was greatly surprised when arrested, but submitted quietly and accompanied the officers to the county jail without re sistance. When seen by a reporter last evening he admitted his identity and confessed that he was the party want ed. However, he denied his guilt of the crime charged. He claimed he was ar rested for this same crime shortly after it was committed, but was acquitted at a preliminary trial.

FOR MANY YEARS Physicians Have Been Seeking; a Reliable Pile Cure- For years physicians have experi mented in vain, seeking a remedy which would effectually cure piles and similar rectal troubles without resorting to surgical operations. Many salves, ointments and other remedies were found to give only tem porary relief but none could be depended upon to make a lasting, satisfactory cure. Within the past few years however a remedy called the Pyramid Pile Cure, has been repeatedly tested in hundreds of cases and with highly satisfactory results. The first effect of this remedy is to in stantly remove the pain and irritation and from that time on the cure rapidly progresses and before the patient is hardly aware of it he is entirely cured. The Pyramid Pile Cure seems to act directly upon the nerves and blood ves sels of the parts affected as it comes into direct contact with them and sets up a healthy action which in a perfectly natural way reduces the swelling and in flammation. The Pyramid Pile Cure performs the cure without pain or inconvenience to the sufferer and is justly considered one of the most meritorious discoveries of modern medicine. Piles is a most annoying and often times dangerous disease with which hu manity is afflicted. If neglected it fre quently develops into fistula or some fatal or incurable rectal trouble,whereas by the timely use of this simple but effective remedy no one need suffer a single day from any form' of piles. The Pyramid Pile Cure is perfectly harmless, contains no mineral poison, opiate or dangerous drug of any kind. It is in suppository fprm composed of emollient oils and astringents, and is ap plied at night and absorbed into the parts affected during sleep. Druggists everywhere sell full sized treatments of the Pyramid Pile Cure at 50 cents per package. The uniform success of the remedy has made it the most popular and best known of any form of. treatment for piles.

Era of Cry of Election Fraud is Once More Here. The pathetic and tiresome part of the biennial campaign in Kansas is now upon the people, and there is no respite, even through tonics and nerve restorers from the cries of "fraud," "watch the opposition," "there are plans to count us out and steal the election" which will ring out from each of the state head quarters until the battle has ended. Just why men who shake bands with each other daily, have business interests in common, are proud of the state in which they live, believe in Kansas and her future, should find it necessary to divide on political lines and charge, the members of an opposing political party with fraud and dishonor is one of the hidden mysteries of politics which the plodding citizen will never understand. Criticism and denunciation were more popular a few years ago in all the po litical parties than today. Now it is the practice for the candidates to refer in terms as eulogistic as the circumstances will permit to the purposes and work of the opposition. Jn this manner the rep resentatives of all the parties hope to steal away on election day with a few votes belonging to the other fellow. Polite consideration has given the former plans of abuse a. back seat. There are yet among the unpunished some who consider a first-class political speech a vindictive arraignment of the opposition, infused with denunciation of the personal character of a candidate. As a rule humanity is much the same. John J. Ingalls once said that "there is no law against a man getting rich," and this is also true concerning political par ties; there is no law against men iden tifying themselves with whatever politi cal party their fancy dictates and there has not yet been created the political party which embraces all the wisdom, sagacity and common sense of the age. There never will be such a party. The country would be dead were all the peo ple ir it of the same opinion. The fact that the human mind and man are large ly the same; that there is in a ma jority of men a sense of honor; that none of the political managers are fugi tives from justice or on a vacation from a convict's cell, makes the cries of "fraud," "fraud," which are now Moating about the country in Kansas very amusing. The Republican managers are counsel ing their trusted workers in every pre cinct of the state to Vt'ateh the opposi tion, and the Populists are sending out the same advice to the lieutenants in that party advising them to keep a watchful eye on the opposing element. "The Republicans are older at the business than we are," said a Populist manager today, "so we'll watch them all the time." The Republican politi cians say that the fellows in the Popu list party are as shrewd as those in any other party, and that their interest in the proposed frauds must be from a knowledge of how those things are ac complished. So the cries of fraud, the straw vote fiend, the personal interview writer who puts out new documents every few days, the Hopper, the incriminating political stories, the roorbacks, the cartoons in fact, all the confusion of the combined intelligence of a large number of men engaged in political management in thi3 state will have the right of way until after election. The statistician at the respective headquarters will continue to "announce" results which he knows no more about than a cigar store Indian, and the election will come and go much to the satisfaction of a peace-loving people.

Street Commissioner Snyder Wrest ling With the Problem. The street commissioner's force was out Thursday sweeping the streets in the daytime. This is an unusual occur rence, as the force is occupied at other work during the day. However, the work got behind and the force was put to work sweeping Jackson, Quincy, West Sixth and a portion of Tenth. The street force is so small that when the sweeping is done in the day all the men have to be taken away from the work on the parks along the recently paved streets, and this throws them be hind in their work. The city owns two old sweepers which have been in use since they first swept streets and they do not do good work, and are a very heavy item of expense. It is possible to use the old gweepera twenty days before new brushes have to be put in. It costs about $13 to do this. The modern sweeper whh h i3 used in all of the cities at the present time will do more work and the brushew can be replaced at a cost not to exceed $5. It seeims that the city ia displaying very poor economy in this respect. Street Commissioner Snyder said this morning, when askcu why he had his force out doing sweeping in the day time: "We were a little behind in the work and I was anxious to get those streets cleaned. We could not do it at night because we can not work as rap idly in the night. If we have good luck and the old sweepers do not get out of fix, we can sweep about twenty-three blocks during the night. If we can work in the day we can sweep from thirty seven to forty blocks. If the city owned a sprinkler to run in front of the sweep ers we could work in the day and do at least a third more work. At night we can sweep without a sprinkler as the dust does not bother the people," The city needs one force to do noth ing but sweep the streets, but the pres ent force is altogether too small to prop erly attend to the streets. THOSE UNIFORMS. How Marshall's Will Appear at the Concert. The new uniforms in which Marshall's band will appear at the citizens' compli mentary concert, at the Auditorium, on October 23, are superior in effectiveness, workmanship and trimmings to any band outfit in this country. The coats are of artillery red cloth, trimmed in applique with black mohair braid. The trousers are- a dark blue with regulation red artillery stripes. The caps ate dark blue, and have the word "Marshall's" and' a lyre embossed in gold on the front. The band has also been furnished with duck trousers for summer wear. These white trousers, with the red and black coats, make a handsome, showy uni form, in which the band will appear in the second part of the programme, in order that the audience may see their entire outfit. From first to last the concert on Tues day evening is being managed by the friends of the band outside of the mem bership. A fitting and profitable testi monial to this popular and talented or ganization is in nowise amiss. In strict keeping with the elegant uniforms, the music is to be of the usual first-class standard, new and catchy as well. Piles Cured Without the Koife. Itching, Blind, Bleeding or Protruding Piles.
