A MARRIAGE PROPOSAL Leading Woman of Corse Pay ton Stock Company Declares Big Pugilist Offended Her Dignity. New York, Oct. 24. Etta Reed, the leading -woman of the Corse Payton Stock company at the Lee Avenue the ater, Brooklyn, and wife of Corse Pay ton, insists that her husband shall fight a duel with Champion James Jeffries, Bhe says she received insulting notes, proposing immediate marriage, from the big pugilist or soma one who sig-ned his Payton is now studying- a form toota on pugilism and tryiag to convince tiia wife that some one else- used the fighter's name. But Mrs. Payton re reived the notes, and she weep as Mr. Payton tries to figure out some diplo mats way of inviting ths conqueror of Kltzsimmons to explain. Jeffries is an actor now, and is ap- f earing in the character of Silent Sam a the Gaiety theater in vVilllamsburgrr. Etta Reed went there to see the nov lty of a "silent" pugilist. Bhe is a blonds, -with a striking figure, and evi dently attracted much attention. At the end or the first act a cote was handed to her, with Jeffries' name at tached, in which the writer stated his willingness to marry Miss Reed at once, nd naively suggesting that immediately after the performance would be a con venient and satisfactory time for him. the paid nd attention to the communi cation, but after the second act another missive was handed to the aotress, in which the writer suggested a monetary consideration. She arose and left the theater, but un fortunately was so angry that she tore up the note, so that it cannot be proved whether the real Jeffriea is intimidating the blonde-haired woman or whether an other used his name. Meanwhile an exceedingly lively inter view is expected when Payton and the pugilist meet. CORBETT DENOUNCES BRADY. Says Jeffries Owes Him For Suits of Clothes Bought For Him. Boston, Oct. 24. James J. Corbett, the firmer champion of the pugilistic work), publicly denounced his former manager, Viiliam A.Biady, and the present heavy weight champion, Jeffries, at the theater where he opened an engagement. Cor bett was in a serious mood and In re sponse to the cries for "speech," got af ter Brady and Jeffries in this fashion: "When I first met Bill Brady ten years ego. he didn't have SO cents. After I had fought and defeated John L. Sullivan, the champion of the world, I said to Brady, now let's go ahead and make pome money and we'll 'split even." I never had a contract with him and al ways kept my word. "As for Jeffries, when I was training for my fight with Fitzsimmons at Car fon City, a friend of mine In Los Angelts wrote to me and told me about Jeffrie, lie sail he didn't know anything, but wanttd me to give him a shew, so I took him in. Jeffries was a big awk ward gawk without any clothes and I paid a hundred dollars for two suits, which he hasn't made good yet. Then I took him in fcand and taught him all he knows, "I rropose to follow this chump all over the country and tell the same story and see if I can make the coward fight me again. If my right with McCoy was a fake, Jeffries and Brady ought to be the last to say bo. He doesn't say any thing about my last fight with him' when I punched the head off of him at Coney Island. I don't want any credit for lick ing McCoy, for I am a heavy weight and lie is nothing but a welter weight." GOING TO SOUTH DAKOTA. K. XT. Football Team Leaves Thursday For Vermilion. Lawrence.

IM SWIFT SPECIFIC CO- ATLANTA, 6A. couldn't winr from the Normal, which is generally considered a minor team, is not a proof of weakness, as the Normal team is playing a great game this year, under the coaching of Lamb, a tormer Princeton man. The prettiest dodging sien for some time was that of Quigiey, who got away from the whole varsity and made a touchdown, running three fourths the length of the field. Coppin also got away from the varsity ends several times. Tucker and Jenkinson played great ball at half, and owing to superior Interference were better able to show off their ability. Algie seems to be getting faster every day. He got the scrub halves several times last night before they got started. Elder was taken out from tackle and Schraut, the big German guard, was put in his place. Morton taking Schraut's place at guard. Betsford was put in at quarter. He seems to be a surer man in handling the ball than Poorman, who was inclined to be nervous in Saturday's game. RECORD OF CRESCEUS FOB. 1000. Great Stallion Trots 17 Heats in Av erage Time of 2:06 3-4. New York. Oct. 24. Cresceus, 2:04, the champion trotting stallion, finished hia campaign of 1900 at Terre Haute. Tnd, last week. He had been shipped to that famous track in order to send him against his record, and It was believed that he even had a chance to lower the World's trotting record o 2:0314, made there by The Abbot a few weeks ago. Be made two trials, but both were unsuccessful. On Tuesday he trotted in S:05'i. and on Friday his time was 2:WH- The track was good, but the Indian summer sun of late October does not take all the chill of the frosty nights out of the air. and to this cause Cresceus' owner and driver, George Ketcham, attributed his lack of success. In his second essey on Friday It looked at one time as if the end desired was as good as achieved, for the stallion was at the three-quarters in 1:3214. Could he- have come home In 31 seconds, as he did at Cleveland, two weeks before, when trotted in 2:04, he would have equaled The Ab bot's record. But the cool breeze that he had to face, and the strain he was un der, told their tale and it took him 32 sec onds to trot to the wire. It was in the last quarter of both these miles that Cresceus slowed up percepti bly, which would lend color to the as sumption that he is slightly stale, as when he la thoroughly "at himself he is noted for his grand finishes. But he has been hard at work since July 4. when he opened the season at Pittsburg by beating Tom my Britton. and aftrr so many miles at the pace thnt kills it is small wonder that, sturdy as he is, he should begin to show signs of needing a rest. There is a question whether he Is seen on the turf in 1;01. Since he made his first appearance In public Cresceus has had but one off year. That was in lsS, and his owner then declared that it was because he had made a stud season with him in the spring and that the experiment would never be repeated. But if Cresceus never races again, which is not likely, seeing that he is young and strong and absolutely sound he has done enough in 1L)0 to make his name lasting in turf history. He has placed the stallion record at 2:04. and beaten 2:05 three separate and distinct times, and no other stallion has ever trotted below 2:C6Vi. But one of these nineteen heats is slower than 2:10. and as that was trotted over a half-mile track, pulling a f ur wheeled wagon, It may well be the ex ception. The average time of the othiT eighteen heats is just 2:07, and excluding; the milo in 2:09 over a half mile track, the average of the remaining seventeen is 2:(5. Of all other trotting stallion", Dir-ctum. 2:(5,i. only has ever beat n 2: 6, and he did that but once. Considering this, Cresceus' seventeen heats in the average time of 2:06 mark him, equally with his second mile of 2:04. the one su premely great trotting stailiun of the nineteenth century. EMPIRE CITY RACEa St Simonian "Won Mile and a Furlong Handicap in 1:52 1 5. New York. Oct. 24. A card of six over night events was decided at the Empire City race track but some fair sport was enjoyed by a good sized crowd. The track was again lightining fast, as shown in the handicap, at IVb miles, which St. Simonian won easily in 1:52 1-5, but a fraction of a second more than the world's record of 1:52 for the distance. King Barleycorn was the favorite for this race and made the running for seven furlongs, but as usual, quit when the finish came, and St. Simonian moved to the front and showed the way into the stretch. Annoy challenged gamely, but when McCue let St. Simonian down he drew away and won easily by a length and a half. Annoy took the place a length before MacLeod of Dare, the favorite stopping to nothing. An unfortunate accident happened in the second race. While at the post The Chamberlain kicked St. Cloud and in the first few yards of the race his leg broke, the animal going fifty yards on three legs before he could be pulled up. He limped off the track to the paddock, where a bullet put him out of his mis ery. It was a severe loss to his owner, James R. Keene. Miss Hanover won the race by a head from Buff on, after racing together all the way. Musette won the first race ridden out from Himtime and Unmasked in fast time. She made all the running. Only one favorite was suc cessful, Cresson, in the fifth race. PLAY 1N KANSAS CITY. Victorious High School Team to Meet Undefeated MissouHans. The Topeka high school football team goes to Kansas City Friday to meet the team from the Kansas City, Mo , Central high school. The date, as originally set. was for the game to take place Saturday, but owing to the fact that the Kansas City Medics arranged for a game on that date and the grounds had to be given up to thom, the date for the Topeka-Kansas City game had to be changed to Friday. The Topeka boys ajre confident of vic tory in Kansas Citv. With this victorv added to their string they will ensilv be the champion fooiball team of Missouri and Kansas in their class. So far the team has not been defeated this year and the Kansas City team has been alike victorious In ail their games. Hence there is cosiderable rivalry between the two teams.

(AHSAS HEWS. 3Ian, Wife and Ten Children Pitifully Poor. Reach Wichita and Are Cared For bj the City. ARE WITHOUT A CENT. Traveled From California With Little to Eat. Father of 19 Children and 66 Grandchildren. "Wichita, Oct. 24. Joseph Duston, 73 years of age, with his wife and family of ten children arrived in Wichita last night in a covered wagon, after an awful trip overland from California, crossing 1,000 mile3 of desert with nothing to eat but dry bread. Many times they found themselves penniless and went hungry to bed and now they are living at the expense of the city, until the old man and his grow-n children can find work. Joseph Duston is a relative of Han nah Duston, of Revolutionary war fame, who killed nine Indians and has a mon ument erected to her memory in New York. He has lived in California all hia life, and ten years ago owned $12,000 worth of property in San Bernardinocoun ty, near Los Angeles. But the floods came, washed away his crops and cov ered his land with sand. He was com pelled to sell his property for a small sum and with three covered wagons he started eastward in hopes of regaining some of his lost wealth. They followed the trail of the Santa Fe railroad from California to Wichita. In speaking of their experience, the old man said: "In all of my 73 years of life, I have never passed through such an ordeal as we now have ended as I trust. We left Los Angeles in June, 1899. We start ed into the desert at the San Bernardino county line and came out at Ratoon, New Mexico, after two months on sandy plains I had $200 In cash when I started, but spent all that buying feed for the horses as we crossed the desert. We got little to eat ourselves save dry bread. Salted meat was a luxury and cool water was something we never tasted in all that time. We arrived at Ratoon with little cash and nearly worn out in spirits. I tried to find work. Win ter was approaching. We jogged on to Albuquerque where we had to beg for something to eat. I got work there and we stayed there seven months. lhen wont became scarce and we journeyed on across Arizona. After getting into Texas our trip was uneventful. I work ed along the way to get bread for the family. Last night we were caught out in the rain storm and had to apply to the police for protection. I want a job on a farm and my two grown girls would like to get work out if they can get a chance. We don't want to live on charity any longer than necessary, for we can earn our way. I have not a cent to my name." The Duston family are at present liv ing in the basement of the city building and are being fed by the city. Chief of Police Cubbon says he thinks they are worthy of any aid anyone would be stow. Four of the little children are now sick with the chills, but the father has no money to secure the services of a doctor. All are poorly clad. The old man is father of nineteen children, nine of whom are grown and living in Cali fornia. He has 66 grandchildren and there are 25 voters in the family. STANLEY AND WELCH.

Crotsley, 538 Washington St., Hoboken, New Jersey, writes: Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets just fill the bill for children as well as for older folks. I've had the best of luck with them. My three-year-old girl takes them as readily as candy. I have only to say "tablets "and she drops everything else and runs for them. A Buffalo mother a short time ago who df spaired of the life of her babe was so delighted with the results from giving the child these tablets that she went be fore the notary public of B;rie Co., N. Y., and made the following affidavit: Gentlemen: Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab lets were recemmerded to me for my two-momhs'-old baby, which was sick and puny and the doctors said was suf fering from indigestion. I took the child to the hospital, but there found no relief. A friend mentioned the Stuart Tablets and I procured a box from my druggist and used only the large sweet lozer.ges in the box and was delighted to find they were just the thing for my baby. I feel justified in saying that Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets saved my child's life. MRS. W. T. DETHLOPE. Subscribed and sworn to before me this 12th day of April. 1897.

STAHL AND HAZEN Exchange Compliments Because Chief of Police Refuses to Support the Judge. The campaign seems to have warmed up sufficiently to arouse Judge Hazen. Monday night he went to the police sta tion, and calling Chief Stahl aside, said: "I heard today that you would not vote for me. I told the man that I would not believe it until I had heard you make the statement yourself. Are you going to support me?" Chief Stahl replied that he would not; that he intended voting for Judge Mar tin. "I have always been a good friend of yours," said Mr. Stahl, "but I ex pect to support the other candidate." This aroused the ire of the judge, and he asked for reasons, and got them. "I want to know if the city administra tion is going to Import men Into the city for the purpose of working against me?" inquired the judge; "and I want to know if Mayor Drew is in this deal." "You will have to ask Mayor Drew if you want to know what he thinks and is doing," replied the chief. The judge repeated his question, and got the same answer. The talk got a little loud, for the judge wasangry, and the policemen stood in readiness to in terfere in case the argument got too strong. The judge accused the city ad ministration of importing men to defeat him. and the men who were, standing by gathered from the rapid flow of words that the Judge Had some very concise opinions concerning a man who would do that, and he was ready and w illing at any minute to hand the opinions down. Chief Stahl said that he had not spoken to any of the men concerning the fight on the judge, ana mat he Knew tne politics of but few of the men on the force. He had been too busy attending to Us duties to give much attention to politics. Chief Stahl informed the judge that he did not like his decisions in re gard to the prohibitory law. and also gave his views on that subject in a very convincing manner. Mayor Drew when told of the meeting said:" "I have heard that Judge Hazen had a talk with Chief Stahl and that he was laboring under the impression that I was using the power of the adminis tration to defeat him, but I know there can be no grounds for such an opinion. I have not asked a man on this floor how he intended to vote, and do not Intend doing so." END HAS COME. Elmwood Club Ha Apparently Given TJp the Ghost.

The three largest stopped at were Stam ford, where he spoke In a hall; Onetla, where he addressed a large outdoor meet ing and at Bloomville, where he said: "I want to call your attention to a little Incident that occurred last night in New York. I think you can sometimes know a man by the company he keeps. You can sometimes tell something about a candidate by the people who are his most active supporters. There whs a Bryan meeting last night In New York, in Cooker Union, I think. .At (hat m et- Ing the morning papers report that the two people who were most enthusiastic ally cheered were Aguinaldo, of the Philippines, and Altgeld, of Illinois. I think it was entirely proper to cheer one. If you cheer the other. It was entirely appropriate to cheer the man who par doned the sriarehisls In this country and .the man who hai been striking at i ur soldiers on the other side of the earth. Now think of a party that relies on that kind of support, symbolized by the m.-n who cheered Altgeld and Aguinaldo as a great apostle of freedom, and a few months ago a certain Hryanite alluded to him as a second Ueorge Washington. You may not be familiar with Amiina do's history, so I will give it to you brieiiy? Continuing tiovernor Hooseveit review ed, as he had in several previous speech, a, the career of Ajruinaldo. He then said: "Now, gentlemen, think of a party that is reduced to champion that type of man." At Koxbury, a few miles biiow Stam ford (.Governor Boosevelt was anttered by a man in the crowd yelling "Hurrah for Bryan." "Hurrah for Bryan?" snld the Gover nor. "Why do you hurrah for Bryan? When any man says hurrah for Bryan I always feel like asking why." A voice: "They can't answer." "Because Mr. Bryan has announced that Mr. Croker is the prophet of Tammai.y hall and the state is why they hurrah for Bryan. "Again, why hurrah for Brvan? Whv, for the forty-eight cent dollar, for the prospect ot cutting into the nation's debt by the simple process of cutting into the nation's honor. Is that a good reason f r saying 'Hurrah for Bryan.' Why don't you hurrah for Aguinaldo? You will give the greatest possible comfort to every Malay bandit who Is shooting at the flag, if you help or aid the HryaniEd Democracy in any way. I make a dis tinction between the Bryanlzed Democ racy and the Democracy of Jackson." The committee at t;.mf ,rd hud secured the new opera house for the addresses and the party was driven there in car riages. An audience that tested the ca pacity of the house gree ed Governor Hoosevelt as he walked upon the stane. He said in part: "Now Mr. Bryan yesterday was speak ing about trusts. Apparently trusts are now the paramount issue. That para mount issue lias rhar.gr-d so oltn thit it has been a little difficult to keep up with it. Yesterday in his speech he pro posed two remedies for the trusts. Th lirst remedy wa to nut on the frn lint all trust made articles. Bis nnxt pr ito- sltion was to provide by law that th. re shall be interference by the federal gov ernment. Now, I criticise his first rem edy as being marked to the last deg, ee uy rony. in ract is. air. Brvan is not sincere. He claims that if the Demo ratic party had a chance they would abodsh trusts. Well, he had four yearn in c ti gress and during that time s .me of the million dollar trusts were formed and I have not heaxd that he raised his finger or his voice to stop them. And ttien y.u remember that the records of congress show that all but four Democrats In the house voted against the so-called anti trust bill and Rave as their reason for si doing, through the mouth of Mr. Rich ardson, that if the bill was passed they would have nothing to make a paramount Issue In this campaign." At Norwich Governor Roosevelt took tin entirely new subject, touching rm.si.v upon state legislation. Kef erring to his elforts in framing legislation for New York state he said: 'T studied with interest m-hat Kmn done in New Zealand. New Zealand tried very boldly a number of exp runents in dealing with Corporate wealth. I also studied the laws cf Ma-sSHChuet.ts. But 1 can tell you one state we only stu !y a little, because we found nothing In It and that was Nebraska. They had had I'opu II. tic legislation there and we found som,. legislation to avoid, but we did not tind anything the other wav. I hiive ftrons hopes that Nebraska wilt e-o "ep. , n M1 this year and If that happens I am will ing to nuarantee that two or ,tir, e y. am hence we will find law ther- en-ct ng lab r and corporations which will be good for us to carefully study in re orminK onr laws but there is not anything there now. ' In spite or the rnln storm which set In before the meetings, the governor talked to two crowded houses. THAT STRIP ,rLAN SUIlT Action to Determine Whether They Are in the City or Not.

Webb McNall spoke at the cpera house here Tuesday afternoon to the largest and most en thusiastic audience of the campaign. He touched upon the Philippine ques tion, and the logic put forth plainly showed the folly of the administration In attempting to pursue the policy it has outlined. He pointed out the dangers of the people under Imperialism and the rule of trusts, and in every instance his remarks were apt and to the point. Com ing down to state issues he reviewed the insurance question, telling why he. as superintendent of insurance, did certain things, and declaring that he would do them again.
