Imperial Clothiers Will Use Second Floor of New K. & L. of S. Building. The work of tearing down the old fire department building is well under way. Thi plans for the new building are in the hands of the national executive committee of the Knights and Ladies of Security. The building will be four stories high, but the roof will be on a level with their property on the corner ff Seventh street and Kansas avenue. This is made possible from the fact that the descent of West Seventh street from Kansas avenue is so great that an ad ditional floor may be placed in the build ing. The lower floor will ba divided into three store or office rooms with an ad ditional little room about ten feet wide. The new building will be 50 feet square. The second floor will be on practically the same level as the floor now occupied by "The Woman's Store" and the Kobinson, Marshall Clothing Vompany. The south half of the second floor has been leased to the Robinson, Marshall company, and by cutting out the rear wall and putting in about four or five steps the Imperial clothiers will have a store room which will be 25x-25 feet. The north side of the second floor will be divided into office rooms, as will also the third floor. The entrance to the second floor offices will be from the stairway and entrance to the Security building on Seventh street, and the en trance to the third floor offices may be either from the Seventh street hall or the Kansas avenue stairway. The fourth floor will be fitted up as a lodge room. The Security lodge room now is one of the best in the city, and the new room may be even better. The building will cost nearly $10,000.

IcE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA. 6A. t o. SP0RTIHOJ1EWS. Jimmy Michael 5Iake3 Wonder ful Record. Leads Eddie McDufFee by a Mile at Chicago. A MOTOR PACED RACE. Little Welshman Kides Circles Around Bostonian. Johnny Nelson Tries For a Rec ord But Fails. Chicago, Oct. 22. Jimmy Michael rode circles around Eddie McDuffee in their fifteen-mile motor-paced race at the Coliseum Saturday evening. Lap after lap the speedy little Welshman gained, until at the finale, when Jack Prince fired the gun for the finish at the tape, the "midget" was ten laps and four yards to the good. The Jlichael-McIHiffee race was far and away the prettiest and cleanest cut event of the kind which has taken place during the meet. Just to show what he could do in the way of pace-following, Michael changed from his original pace three times, while going at top speed around the deep-dished bowl, while the crowd of 2,500 cheered his nerve. Michael took the lead from the start. Crooks and Sherer, the fastest of the fast motor teams, were his first pace makers, and Michael caught them by riding on his pedals, standing high over his saddle in order to get the proper sprint. He gained half a lap on Mc Duffee by this spurt. Steadily he widened the breach, and at the end of the ninth lap of the first mile he had made his gain a full lap. At the finish of the second mile the "rarebit" was a lap and a half to the good, and by the end of the fifth he had made the gap two and a quarter laps. Having this margin. Michael felt that he could afford to do a little fancy work on the side. Newkirk and Stone start ed an extra motor, and when the proper speed had been attained Michael s orig inal pacemakers kept up the bank and he dropped neatly behind, while the big crowd cheered his performance. It was like jumping from a train going at a mile-a-minute clip to another, and in a way where a misjudged movement meant sure accident. By the finish of the eighth mile Michael had made his lead three and a half laps, and it was four and a half when the hundredth circuit of the ten lap track had been finished. Hali'-way into the eleventh Michael again picked up Crooks and Sherer with one of his pretty drops. With Michael six and a third laps ahead in the sixth lap or tn thirteenth mile McDuffee's pace gave out, and the Boston man gave a nervy exhibition, riding like mad about the track in a grand effort to tack on be hind Michael's pace. For six laps he rode thus before his new team came on. But Michael was not to be denied, and at the finish of the fourteenth mile he had made the gap eight and one-half laps. He was ten laps aHead at the finish of the ninth lap of the fifteenth mile and a quarter lap better at the end. Johnny Nelson made a great effort to beat Michael's record of 1:40 for the mile, and made the distance in 1:41 2-5. George Leander set Ralph "Wheaton a pretty pace in the five-mile match race, and Wheaton stuck surprisingly well, finishing only four yards behind. MUTES PLEY FOOTBALL, T heir Game Free From "Wrangling a Least. Outclassed as they clearly were in the game with Topeka High school Satur day, the deaf mutes from Olathe gave an exhibition of Spartan grit that was good to see withal. The fortunes of bat tle fell to the strong, the skilled and practiced, and the High school rushers had things pretty much as they pleased. When the gale subsided and the slaugh ter was over ready reckoners found that the High school boys had rolled up 45 points to their credit, while the Olathe contingent had advanced the pigskin just eight yards in six rushes. No one seemed to mind the drubbing they got so little as the mutes them selves. Brushed aside like , flies, they swarmed to the attack again; knocked down like a row of wooden soldiers or bowled over like so many tenpins, they bounced up with the elasticity of a return-ball and waited to be floored again. And they never said a word -just grinned. The gale of wind that whirled the dry dust across the field could not lay a crust of dirt on each hot face thick enough to hide their evident enjoy ment. They cracked this crust with continued smiles. Their eyes flashed merriment. A shrug of the shoulders, a shake of the head, a twirl of the fingers, an odd grimace, a facial contortion all seemed to say the same thing: "Do it again, we like it." It was a continued succession of five, ten and twenty yard gains by which the Topeka boys carried the ball at will through their opponents' line. "Tackles back" gave splendid interference and the runner would crash through behind them for big gains every time. The linemen were kept busy moving the tape' on every down, nearly, and not once in the game did the visitors' line hold for four downs. The way the High school backs crashed into the Olathe forwards like human catapults was enough to jar a cigar store Indian mto speech. But they never said a word only grinned. The bad parrot in the henhouse could not throttle the dumb chicks into say ing "Papal" as the story goes. Neither could the good-humored, silent athletes from Olathe be hammered, scared or startled into speech. For it was a game full of rush, dash and ginger, although, be it said to the credit of both teams, there was no slugging. The two halves of twenty-five minutes each proved conclusively that the boys from the state institution for the deaf and dumb are a tough proposition for taking hard knocks. Professor Putnam spoke truly, just before the game be gan, in answer to a question, "No. we do not have a physician along. Our boys are tough. They do not get hurt." Kates, a wiry little chap that went in for a moment as right end, was, the only unfortunate that tended to disprove the assertion. In his second scrimmage Bates got mixed up with somebody's shoe, as he made a tackie, and retired with a cut alongside the eye. There were no other casualties on either side. In the one brief interval of the visit ors' offensive play, the crowd could not make out how they gave their signals. The boys are so quick in their move ments that it works to their football disadvantage. Each of the four times that they ran with the ball, it was fumbled in passing. The second shot, Furlow, the elastic left end, made a quick recovery and advanced it fur their only recorded gain. They gave promise of running well, though, if tney had had more opportunity, and their greatest football fault was in tackiing high. There were gestures enough to keep the spectators interested in the unusual features of the game, nevertheless. Any one knew that when a player rushed up to the referee with his head thrown , back, striking his forearm across the stretch of neck exposed, that he wanted a penalty inflicted for being choked. When Bates was scratched there was an excited running to and fro for a mo ment, and the air was full of fingers working mystic signs. Hands waved and fingers worked overtime, without a doubt, but who could expect to see them in a football match where the vista is continually one of flying arms and legs? Quarterback Stewart, who sprung a surprise of his own after the game, by conversing easily and fluently, gave as suranca that the signals are given by hand and that every player comprehends them. By way of gesture he twirled his hands in front of him as he spoke. "There. I gave a signal then," he laughed, "but you didn't see it." In the playing Furlow was into every one that came around his end, and where the nimble end was not Captain Burson and Tackle Ressink were. In in dividual work these three figured largely. There was plenty of hard work cut out for the Topeka boys in making the several touchdowns and running up the big score. The team work was most favorably commented upon. Every rusher advanced the ball when he was ealled upon to carry it. The High school team has bright prospects if it con tinues to play to win and is not led to brew a tempest in a teapot through de sires for individual glory. The teams were lined up as follows: Topeka. Olathe. Curry L. E. XT?Z' Tuttle E. T Modar. F Griggs L. G Brooks. Vance" C Oliver. Fleshman R. G Rule. C. Griggs (Capt.)..R. T Ressink. McCauley R.

When the men were called, however, MacFarland declined to rare, owin? to the sodden state of the track, and there upon it was announced th.it Jicfiuelin would ride over the course.

Great preparations are being made for the Chicago horse show. Most of the grand stand at Harlem has been inclosed in glass. Arion, 2:07, will be started to beat his record some time this fall. Of the $11,150 won by Boralma this year, $7,500 has gone to charity. Thomas Lawson won $18,000 over the victory of Boralma in the Transylvania. The pacer Prince Albert, 2:22, changed hands in Maine last week for $200. Charley T., 2:iS. by Tempter, 2:16, is out of the pony pacer, Allen Maid, 2:16. There will be close to 1,000 horses at the New Orleans track for the opening day. Dreamer, 2:14t,i, by Oakland Baron, is aeain the fastest 3 year old colt of the year. Charley Herr's second heat in 2:07 was the fastest ever trotted on the Lexing ton track in a race. Boralma, 2:0S, is the first trotter to win both the Futurity and the Transyl vania at Lexington. One day recently at a big race meet ing in France $504,713 were played in the mutual machines. More horses are in training at Over land park, Denver, at this season of the year than has been for many years back. At the fair at Brockton. Mass., 100,000 paid admissions were taken in.

The Lady, a 3 year old, at Chicago, has proved a consistent bread-winner. She won 22 races, was second 14 times and third 5 times. Nick Hubinger is one of the heaviest losers in the Transylvania. It is said he played the field against Boralma to the extent ofl $15,000. If Arion should be kept in training all winter a lot of horsemen think he would be a dangerous competitor in any class next season, despite his age.

Lon don Chronicle. KANSASJEWS. Judge Hook Mates a New De cision In Court. Refuses to Hold Man Accused of Passing Bad Money. NOT A FEDERAL CRIME Confederate Bills Not Enough Like the Genuine. Other Judges Found Such Acts to Be Criminal. Leavenworth, Kas., Oct. 22. A deci sion that will, no doubt, have the effect of causing a large number of habeas corpus proceedings to be brought in the United States courts, was handed down by Judge W. C. Hook, in the United States district court. Judge Hook holds that there is not enough similarity between a genuine greenback and a confederate bill to hold a man charged with passing the con federate bill for genuine money. The decision was handed down in the trial of William L. Schraag, a soldier in com peny I, First infantry, charged with passing a o conieaerate dui xor a greenback, on a groceryman here. When the trial was called Schraag's at torney. Lee Bond, moved the court to quash the indictment for the reason that there was not enougn resemmance iu enuine money in the confederate Din to cause it to be taken for genuine money. This was the first time the point has ever been raised in the court, and, after deliberation, Judge Hook sustained the motion and the indictment was quashed. Judge Hook, however, withheld hi3 ruling until the state authorities can be communicated witn relative to nanaing Schraag over for trial on the charge at obtaining money under false pretenses. Last year John Pierson, on trial oeiore the court on the charge of passing con federate money for genuine money, pleaded guilty, and Judge Hook sen tonnod him to one vear in the United States penitentiary. A number of such cases have been tried before Judge Phil- iims in Kansas City, and where tne ae- fendant was found guilty he was sen tenced to the penitentiary on the charge of passing counterreit. money.

LET HIS TRAIN GO. Col. Bryan Stayed at Buffalo Till He Finished His Speech. Buffalo, N. T., Oct. 2. Mr. Bryan concluded his four day campaign tour of the state of New York with two large meetings in this city Saturday night. One of these meetings was held at the Broadway market, and was an open air gathering, and the other at Convention hall. Before reaching Buffalo he had made fifteen minute addresses during the day beginning with a thirty minute speech at Elmira, at 9 o'clock in the morning. The other places at which he spoke were Corning, Bath, Coshocton, Wayland, Livonia, Avon, Spencerport, Brockport, Holly, Albion, Medina, Mid dleport, Lockport, and Niagara Falls. The attendance at most of the day meet ings was good and at some of them was quite large. During his state tour Mr. Bryan has made about sixty-five different speeches and has quite thoroughly traversed the central belt of the state from east to west. He left this city at 12 o'clock for Huntington, W. Va. At Wayland Mr. Bryan discussed the foreign policy of the government as ex emplified in our management of the Philippines. He condemned that policy, but said he .had never lost hope. "When the children of Israel were in bondage," he said, "it took them several years to secure their release, and it was not secured until the slaying of the first born. In our cause I believe that the slaying of the first born is going on in the Philippines where our buys are dying to purchase trade with human blood that syndicates may exploit the islands, and I believe that in the slay ing of the first born the eyes of the people will be opened to the iniquity of the Republican party's policies." Hundreds had been turned away from Convention hall before Mr liryan ar rived. When he entered, the great au dience arose, and with waving Hags and roaring cheers, made a demonstration that only the most strenuous efforts of the candidate could quiet. Standing dramatically, with extended arms, he hushed the tumult into quiet. In a few words he pointed out that the campaign was nearly closed and that the time of decision was close at hand. While Mr. Bryan was in the midst of his anti-imperialistic argument, at 10:50 o'clock, he was told he must close at once to catch his train. Turning to the audience, Mr. Bryan said: "Were I to consider my own strength I should close now, but at the end of a hard week's work I am willing to travel a little further for the sake of staying a little longer. I am going to stay with you." The audience went Into a tumult of ecstacy that almost equalled the first. At 11:15 o'clock he concluded his ad dress. COLORADO FLYER. Via; "Great Rock Island Route."
