Baseball manager Regards Fenn Team
as Strong and Hare as a Wonder.
Chicago, Oct. 25. Arthur Irwin, the
old-time baseball player, subsequently
the manager for several years of the
Philadelphia National league team, is
in the city on business connected with
his football score board. Mr. Irwin
thinks Pennsylvania is strong this fall,
and says Hare is the greatest football
player who ever lived. Although he saw
Penn beat Brown by only a small score,
he does not regard the Brown team as
at all strong, and was surprised at its
defeat of Chicago. Referring to Lafay
ette's good game against Princeton, he
expressed the opinion that the Lafayette
team, which he has also seen, was vast
ly better than Browns.
Irwin says the promoters of the new
baseball league (American association)
are doing a lot of talking throughout
the east, and making a good many peo
ple believe they have the promise of a
good organization. Ball players, how
ever, says Mr. Irw in, are not among the
people who believe so.

President Charles Ebbetts of the Brook--lyn
team announced today that Brush,
Soden, and Freedman have selected a
Boston newspaper man for the place,
and that an at'.empt will be made to put

He Ever Caught.
Washington, Oct. 25. Charles A. Far

Brooklyn club, is in the city, and will
spend several weeks hunting and fishing
in the vicinity. Farrell says McGinnity
is the greatest pitcher he ever caught,
and that he will go down in baseball
history as the peer of Radbourn, Clark
son and Keefe.
Gene De Montreville of the Brooklyns,
with his wife, has returned to Washing

Ex-Champion Heavyweight Appears
aa a Blacksmith Sharkey Hot.
New York, Oct. 25. Bob Fitzsimmons
is going to be an actor again. He has
a play called "The Honest Blacksmith."
His season, it is said, will begin on Oc

is in four acts. The first scene is Bob's
blacksmith shop. In this scene he makes
a horseshoe and shoes a horse. In the
second act, which shows Bob's training
quarters, the pugilist will do some bag
punching, and, with his trainer, will in
dulge in a bout with the gloves. The
third act takes place in Slocum Dun
lap's Oriental room, where the plot
thickens. Bob's home is the scene of
the fourth act on the night of his fight
with Ruhlin. Moving pictures of this
fight will be shown.
"If there is one fighter in the busi
ness that I would like to have Joe Wral
cott fight," saidd Tom O'Rourke a few
days ago, "he is Tom Sharkey. I think
Wralcott can beat that Irishman in
quick time, as he used to put it all over
him when they boxed friendly bouts at
New Dorp."
When Sharkey was told of O'Rourke's
statement he became hot-headed, and
said: "I won't fight that fellow, as I
never fought a colored man before, and
don't intend to now. O'Rourke is sore
because he knows I will be the cham
pion in two years."

Races at New York.
New York, Oct. 25. A bright, clear
day, with a touch of summer in the air,
afforded a pleasant outing to the Em
pire City race track. Favorites had their
inning, four being first past the Judges.
The Bronxville stakes was the fea
ture, in which Redpath was a hot fa
vorite, with Trumpet played for a good
thing from 5 down to 3 to 1. Hesper
made the running up the back stretch
a neck before Trumpet, with the fa
vorite, who was slow to move, a bad
last. Coming into the stretch Hesper
stopped and Carbuncle and Redpath
challenged Trumpet, but O'Connor had
saved something for the finish and he
won, driving, by a length, from Car
buncle, with the favorite a bad third.

head from Chuctanunda, but was dis
qualified for fouling the latter and his
jockey, R. Williams, was further pun

Wait Not. with Herbert a bad third;

away and a head before Miss Hanover,

St. Louis, Oct. 25. Form players had
a good day at Kinloch park, four favor
ites and two heavily backed second

J. W. Breidenthal Gives His
Ideas of Campaign.
Says JUany Bankers Who Op
posed Party Before
Sees More Gains Than Losses For
But Full Tote Must Be Out In
Order to Win.
Wichita, Oct. 25. J. W. Breidenthal
passed through Wichita Wednesday on
his way to Topeka. In speaking of the
prospects of the fusion party he said:
"The indications point to a complete
victory for the fusion forces in Kansas,
provided a full vote is polled. While it
is true that a few former Populists and
Democrats as well as a small percent
age of Silver Republicans will vote for
McKinley all these claims of large gains
that are being made by Republicans
are absolutely without foundation in
fact except in counties where there has
been a large increase in the vote as in
Cowley county, where the increase in
the vote in. Winfield has been largely
Republican and in Crawford county
where the Republicans will receive the
benefit of about 500 Alabama negro
voters that have come into the county
since 1896.
"In Osage county several hundred fu
sion voters from among the coal miners
have removed to Illinois thus reducing
the fusion majority. Republicans are
reporting great gains in these counties
and pretend that the gains are the re
sult of fiorjs. Wherever I go I have
made special inquiry and I am confident
that we have more gains than losses.
The gains from Gold Democrats who
voted for McKinley in 1896 will alone
more than overcome the desertions. The
Socialist vote will come largely from
former Populists, but it must not be
forgotten that the 1,250 middle of the
road Populists are largely supporting
the fusion ticket. Those who do not
will vote the Socialist ticket. In 1896
many German fusionists voted for Mc
Kinley on the money issue. Today prac
tically all such are supporting Mr. Bryan
and many who never voted our ticket
axe now with us.
"Another element of strength is the
fact that the bankers of our state are
not now alarmed with reference to the
result of the campaign. In 1896 but few
men whose notes matured in October
could secure an extension. They were
told to wait until after election, that if
Mr. Bryan was elected they would not
care to renew the loan. This materially
alarmed many men and caused them
to exert themselves in behalf of Mr.
McKinley. Today this is all changed.
Kansas bankers have an abundance of
money to loan and are ready and
anxious to make any good loan that is
offered. They will not take the risk of
losing a good loan by refusing to grant
an extension. Our deposits as a result
of our great crops have doubled since
1896 and our banks now hold $17,000,000
available for loans and no banker will
undertake to say that the election of
either McKinley or Bryan will affect
our bank deposits. If a full vote is
polled Mr. Bryan will carry the state
by an Increased plurality over 1896."
A Man Thought to Be Partner of Belle
Plaine Burglar Caught.

Speeches were delivered by Senator
Hanna, J. K. Cubbison of Kansas and
Henry D. Estabrook of Chicago.
Senator Hanna was very late in reach
ing the Coliseum, having addressed a
meeting at Aurora earlier in the even
ing. When Senator Hanna made hi3 ap
pearance he was given a tremendous
ovation, the entire assemblage rising
and cheering him ror several moments.
He said, in part:
"Prosperity in this country Is a nor
mal condition and it is only Interfered
with when clouds arise in the horizon
which frighten capital and drive it from
the channels of trade into hiding places
and capital withdrawn from its useful
ness brings idleness end poverty with it.
No business man will risk his capital In
any venture if those clouds arise, and
that will be the condition Just as soon
as there is any change in the present
administration. Mr. Bryan has descend
ed to the lowest plane of demagoguery
when he attempts to array employer
against employe, labor against capital.
It is a significant fact to me; it means
sure defeat, because nothing but des
peration or demogoguery would drive a
man who aspires to the highest offi-e in
this country to such arguments. He is
sowing the seed of anarchism and so
cialism. He is driving apart these great
forces of capital and labor which united
are productive of our development. In
doing that he Is doing violence to the
good sense of the people. President Mc
Kinley'a whole public life has been in the
direction of building up our great indus
tries, protecting American workingmen, i
saving them from the low wages of our
competitors in Europe yet thi3 Moss of
Bryanism proposes to offer to them
promises based upon theory." j
They were discussing the probable con
dition of a man if he should chance to
fall from the top of the wall on the new
addition to the federal building, when
a man who sells books broke in: "You
may think it impossible, but I have known
men to fall a greater distance than that
and not be Injured in the least. It Is not
Infrequently that "we read of men falling
a distance, of fifty or sixty feet with no
serious results. I remember of an instance
when 1 was m St. Louis, of a boy about
S years old. falling from the seventh floor
of a building without receiving any more
serious injury than a heavy jar. It h.ip
pened In this way: the boy was leaning
out of the window attempting to tly a
kite when he lost his balance nd fell.
He whirled over and over and struck a
lot of telegraph wires, fortunately, about
midway between the posts. The wire
were somewhat slack and he bounced off
and struck on the back of a horse, which
was hitched In the street. In twenty min
utes the boy was able to tell the people
who picked him up where he had fallen
from. Just in what position he was in
when he struck the horse, I do not know,
but I do know that he was not scrlousiy
Injured for I was one of the men who
picked him up." "I do not doubt your
story in the least," snld a gontb-man who
had been sit tin with the group listen
ing to the conversation, "for 1 had an
experience in falling which is jut as
strange. Although I fell exactly 175 feet
I am near todav to tell the tale and there
is not a scratch or a scar to show for it.
It happened In this wise: I was worklmr
for an iron firm which took contracts for
building iron bridges, smoke-stacks and
Iron constructlqn generally anil was rent
with a gang to build a smokestack fr a
smelter In Colorado. The stack was to
be 1T5 feet high and w hnd Just com
pleted It, when the accident happened. In
some way I lost my footing, failed to
catch the ropes with my hands and down
I went on the Inside of that stnek: I
have frequently read of people falling
great distances and have noticed that it
seems to be the Trevrtlnt opinion that a
man is unconscious before he reaches the
f:roun.l. This I Can say from experience
a untrue. I realized I was frilling and
would bump from one side of the p;pe to
the other. It seemed to me that I was
a long time in petting- to the bottom, but
I remember when I struck and did not
lose consciousness for several minutes. It
seemed to me that on my downward trip
there was something pushing me back all
the while and that it prevented me from
falilnur as rapidly as I thouKht I should.
When I was picked up and taken out the
greatest wonder was expressed that I
was alive, the Impression among" the other
workmen being" that I would have to be
gathered up with a dust pun. It was all
explained to me In a very satisfactory
manner by one of the engineers and his
theory was sustained by the doctor. He
said that in my downward trip that I hnd
compressed the air in the stack and that
in escaping past me it had thrown my
body to the side of the pipe, thus break
ing the fall. When I reached the bottom
he figured that I struck on a compressed
air cushion at least ten feet high and
that I was let down almost as easily as
I would have been If I had lighted on a
feather bed twice as thick. The only
bruises I got were those received in
bouncing from one side of the pipe to the
other. lie demonstrated his thpory with
figures and references to scientists and I
guess he was correct, for I did not have
a bone broken and was able to resume my
work in a few davs."
"I met a man on the train coming up
from Wichita who had more original
ways of hunting than any one I ever
knew," said a man who sells cigars. "He
was telling m of a farm he had on the
Arkansas river snd the amount of sport
ho got by spending a short season the-e
each year. According to the story he told
me he has a man on the place who de
votes his odd moments to devising ways
and means of catching game without the
aid of a gun or a net. Kvervone In this
county Is acquainted with the fact that
the Arkansas river is a great place for
geese when the season comes on. and
about every sportsman In the state has
been there hunting at least once. This

but he taught me a trick worth two of
that. He would go out on the sand bars
and dig holes about two feet deeo and
very narrow. In the holes he would put
corn. The geese would come up the river

"T would like to have as much money as
Is spent each night at the lunch carts on
the streets in any of the western cities."
said a man whose business carries him
out at night. "Every year there is more
demand for night lunches and people are
getting so they can't sleep without eat
ing. It has only been a few rears ago
when there were no such things as lunch
carts and tamale wagons and ihre were
only a few night lunch counters, and
now every town is full of them. It used
to be that the entire bill of fare at a
lunch counter consisted of ham-sandwiches,
coffee, pie and spring chieken in
season. Nowadays, if a man wants to
catch the trade with a night lunch coun
ter or cart he must have all the old
dishes with tamales. chili, ham and eeg
sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, trllbvs
tenderloin sandwiches and a dozen other
new dishes that were not formerly at
tempted. The hot Mexican dishes are
general favorites, especially with people
who stay out and drink beer. Nothing Is
too hot for a man who Is drinking and the
red pepper, which Is the principal Ingred
ient of most Mexican dishes, m a good
thing for him. In up-to-date lunch carts
the ham used Is chopped and Is mur h
