TOPEKA STATE JOURXAL, SATUED AY EVENING, OCTOBFR 20. 1900.
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

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

expenses, w hile the .Am- r c m 1- agu m ig

The Old St. Louis Player Talks of His
'. Release From Cinc innati.
Cincinnati. Oct. 20. 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. Eddie Burke, a book
maker, is said to be the largest creditor,
McCoy, it is declared, owing him $1,200.
McCoy left town very quietly, and not
until his arrival in England was an
nounced was it reported that h had
deserted New Tork. According- to re
port, the "Kid" is bound for South
Africa, where he has some mining
property that is not yet developed.
There is a suit for divorce against Mc
Coy pending, and he has not yet cleared
himself of the charge that the fight he
lost to Corbett was "faked." Eddie
Burke was also Implicated in the fight
I scandal, Mrs. McCoy being authority for
the statement that he was the man who
placed the "wise" money.
Racing at Chicago.
Chicago, Oct. 20. 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. He had
been a useful breadwinner and was a
half brother to that fast horse. Acclaim,
who was one of the best horses in the
west some years ago. Rollins was a
heavily played favorite, opening at 3 to
1 and being back to 8 to 5.
Gans Defeats Kelly.
Denver. Colo., Oct. 20. Joe Gans, of
Baltimore, won from "Spider" Kelly, of
San Francisco, in the eighth round of
what was to have been a ten-round go
before the Colorado Athletic association
here last night. Kelly's seconds threw
up the sponge in the middle of the eighth
round when he was so weak that he
could neither lead nor defend himself.
Gans was strong and undoubtedly
would have put Kelly out had he gone
further in the fight. During the first
five rounds the honors v. ere about even.
Kinloch Races.
St. Louis. Oct, 20. Four favorites and
two outsiders were successful at Kin
loch park. The weather was ideal, the
track very fast and the sport most en
joyable, three of the finishes being of
the hair-raising order. 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. "Con" McVey, the
big pugilist, who gained notoriety on
November 10, 1S9S, by jumping into the
ring and interfering with the Corbett
Sharkey fight, was today held in $1,000
bail for examination on a charge of
mayhem. Thomas Clinton, a small-sized
hotel porter, appeared against McVey.
One ear was badly lacerated by, he
claimed, the teeth of the Suit-pound
pugilist, who had attacked him for
spoiling a practical joke played by Mc
Vey on a poorly dressed man.
Gans is After Frank Erne.
Denver, Oct. 20. Al Herford. manager
for Joe Gans. announces that he had
mailed to William Naughton of Chicago
a draft for $1,000 as a forfeit for a six
round fight with Frank Erne In Chi
cagOL And eating is simply perfunctory
done because it must be.
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.. South Boston. Mass..
who writes that she bad been a great sufferer
from dyspepsia for six years: had been with
out appetite and had been troubled with sour
stomach and headache. Sns bad tried many
other medicines in vain. Two bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla made her well.
Promises to cure and keeps the
promise. Don't wait till you are
worse, but buy a bottle today.

W. K. Akens Wanted la Ken
tucky on Murder Charge.
Arrested In Doniphan County
by Local Officers.
CRIME OF A TEAR PAST.
Said to Have Killed a Woman
. and Child There.
Public Feeling is Very Strong
Against Akens.
Denton, . Kas., Oct. 20. "William K.
Akens, a young man 23 years of age, and
wanted in Monfordville, Hart county,
Kentucky, for alleged murder of a wo
man and child, committed there over a
year ago, was arrested here by Con
stables Lee Baird and Arvin Coy, and
taken to Troy and lodged in the county
jail.
A reward of $450 is offered by Ken
tucky authorities for his, capture. 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. He was later in
dicted by the grand jury, but left be
fore a warrant could be served on him.
He says he will accompany officers to
Kentucky without requisition papers
from the governor. He says public feel
ing is very strong against him at the
scene of his alleged crime and that he
fears mob violence when taken back.
The constables who effected his capture
will likely receive the entire reward.

drinking, and within two hours his
money was gone. His wife found him
shortly after he had drawn his money,
and she begged him to let her have some
of it for safe keeping, but he refused to
do it. He had the money in his outside
coat pocket, and frequently felt to see
if it was still there. Presently he felt
for the bills and they were gone. Dearen
had shown the money promiscuously,
and several men were following him,
presumably waiting for a. chance to get
his money.

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.

WATCHING THE POLLS.
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.

SWEEPING THE STREETS.
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.
