Cattlemen in Reservations Blocking
Agents' Efforts.
"Wichita, Kan., Nov. 22. Dennis Flynn,
Helegate to congress from Oklahoma, in
an interview with The Republic corre

'"The cattlemen who have leases in the
Kiowa and Comanche Indian reserva
tion are blocking the efforts of the allot
ing agents to git the land ready for the
opening, and I fear the reservation will
not be opened until late next summer."
Thousands are now on the border,
waiting the opening, which they expect
ed to take place in January.

Cherokee Strip celebrated the sixteenth

SURPRISING RESULTS.
A Simple Internal Remedy Makes Re
markable Cures of Catarrh.
People who have used sprays, inhalers,
salves and washes for catarrh and have
found how useless and inconvenient
they are, will be agreeably surprised at
results following the use of a pleasant
Internal remedy In tablet form; drug
grists everywhere admit that Stuart's
Catarrh Tablets, whieh they sell at M
cents for fuil sized treatment in the saf
est, most effective and popular of all
catarrh remedies.
Nearly all cheap cough mixtures and
t hi oat. lozenges contain opiates; these
cheap medicines give a temporary re
lief, especially with little children by
destroying nerve sensations; the irrita
tion in throat, which causes coughing is
temporarily removed, not by removing
the cause but by deadening the nerves
of feeling the irritation is not felt al
though it is still there and will prompt
ly return.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets Is the best
remedy to remove catarrhal secretion,
whether in the nose, throat or stomach
"because they are composed of whole
eome antiseptics like Eucolyptol, Guaia
col, Sanguinaria and Hydrastin; when
you use these tablets you know what
you are putting into your eystem and
not taking chances with cocaine, opiates
or similar poison3 found in so many ca
tarrh cures and cough medicines.
Dr. Ramsdell in commenting on ca
tarrh cures says: "I can heartily rec
ommend Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, be
cause they contain no cocaine nor other
dangerous drug found in so many ad
vertised catarrh cures. I have known
tt many cases of long standing catarrh
ef the head and throat completely cured
by the daily use of these tablets for
everal weeks. One case in particular,
which I could not reach with an inhaler
or spray and where the catarrh caused
daily headaches and a noticable loss of
riearteig was entirely cured by this
harmless but effective remedy."
Dr. Wain wright says: "I never hesi
tate to prescribe Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets for catarrhal headaches and catarr
hal deafness because I knovr them to be
perfectly safe for child or adult and
have seen many remarkable cures re
sulting from their regular daily use: be
cause they are advertised and sold in
drug stores is no reason why any good
rhyslctan should not use them because
we siould seize upon the means of cure
wherever found."
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are especial
ly valuable for catarrhal colds in child
ren because they are pleasant to the
taste and may be used freely to break
VP severe colds and croup at the very
beginning.
All druggists sell the remedy at fifty
eents for fall sized package.

SPORTING NEWS.
Corbett and Jeffries Booked For
a Fight.
To
Be a Twenty Round Bout,
Winner Take All.
BIG PURSE OF $20,000.
Date of the Mill Set For Middle
of February.
Chicago Probable City Where
Contest Will Be Held.
New Tork, Nov. 22. James J. Cor
bett will today attach his signature to
articles of agreement for a boxing con
test with Champion Jim Jeffries. The
match, if made, will be for a purse of
$15,000, winner to take all. In addition
Corbett will offer to make a side bet of
$5,000.
All of this, so far aa Corbett ia con
cerned, was today arranged for.
The contest will be for twenty rounds
andi will come off on or about February
14. All that can be said at this time as
to the battleground is that the contest is
to take place in a city of several hun
dred thousand population east of the
Mississippi river, centrally located and
easy of access. A representative of the
organization which wants to give the
contest is in New Tork with papers testi
fying as to the g?nuineness of his claims,
both as to having permits which guar
antee that the right can be pulled off.
and that the purse in its entirety will
be in the hands of Al Smith as stake
holder at the proper time. The backers
of the contest want Corbett and Jeffries
only, and for a contest between them
have arrangements been perfected, even
to providing for posting of forfeits of
$2,500 each on the part of the men, and
a similar sum en the part of the com
pany proposing to pull off the contest.
It now remains to be seen whether
Jeffries will follow Coi'bett's suit by
signing the articles of agreement, and
thereby again meet in the ring the only
man who has been able to give him any
real argument with the gloves since he
(Jeffries) reached into the neighborhood
of championship honors. It is difficult
to figure out how Jeffries can avoid the
meeting. He promised Corbett another
contest immediately after their meeting
at Madison Square Garden. Then $15,000
in cold cash, even if Jeffries will not
make a side wager, turned over to the
winner upon the announcement of the
referee's decision, is not to be neezed
at. In fact, it will be a bigger lump of
clean cash than Jeffries has ever han
dled as his part after any of hist en
counters in the arena.
Coi'bett reached New Tork last night
from Chicago, where he put in a profit
able week in theatricals. His attention
was today called to a statement made a
few days ago by Jeffries' manager, Wil
liam A. Brady, to the effect that he
(Brady) had not authorized the making
of a match between Corbett and Jeffries
to be pulled off in Chicago.
"I noticed." said Corbett, "that Brady
stated I was not mentioned in connec
tion with a six-round bout in Chicago
with Jeffries. Now, I saw the letters
written by Brady to Lou Houseman,
matchmaker of the Tattersalls club, ask
ing that I be matched to box Jeffries
six rounds. I will wager Brady $1,000
that I can produce the letters in which
he mentioned my name. He simply
thought he would catch me out of con
dition, and when he found I was ready
for him he switched. Jeffries is afraid
to box me, I sincerely believe, but he
can't slide out of a match and get away
with it."
As soon as Corbett signs the articles
of agreement they will be brought to
Manager Brady and Champion Jeffries
for signature. Jeffries is appearing this
week in his play at the Grand Opera
House and is doing a fair business. He
has stated in public print, and has told
friends in private, that he would like
to arrange for another match. None
of his friends entertain even the faintest
notion that he is to meet either Ruhlin
or Sharkey. That those matches were
made to boost along show business is
the accepted theory of all sportsmen. In
the proposition to meet Corbett again,
however, he will have set before him an
opportunity for a bonafide match.
HARVARD IN GRAND FORM.
Crimson Players Demonstrate Re
markable Ability in Practice Game.
Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 22. The Har
vard eleven did some grand work in
the practice periods yesterday afternoon,
scoring three touchdowns and one goal
from the field against the best scrub
eleven that Coach. Dibbles could mus
ter. The men were In splendid condition
and the way they tore the opposing line
to pieces and assisted in pushing the
backs through the holes was enough to
make any coach rejoice. There was no
hesitating; it was simpy plunge into
the scrimmages with a vengeance and
get the ball along from five-yard line
to five-yard line. Rip-roaring, fast foot
ball was demonstrated, Just such as Ben

Americans in every part of the country are interested strongly in this elite equine event of
even the mammoth metroDolia of the Western world with an enormous assemblage of society folk and
Dibblee's team played against Tale two
years ago.
Captain Daly gave his signals care
fully and then he made his coworkers
do lively work when the plays were
started. It was a case of continual hus
tle throughout. Sawin, the crack left
halfback, has regained his old time form
and his goal from the field this after
noon was as accurate as could be de
sired. He practiced on this great de
partment of scoring previous to the
lining up. and it is safe to say that he
will outclass Sharpe in, this respect on
Saturday if he gets anywhere within
kicking distance.
Not a player was injured and at the
conclusion of the practice the warriors
were as lively as kittens, notwithstand
ing the fact that the work had been
hard and the weather muggy.
BKOAD IN NEW YORK.
The Kid Says Mc Govern Is an Awful
Puncher.
New Tork, Nov. 22. Kid Broad, of
Cleveland, who is in New Tork, talking
today of his fight in Chicago with Terry
McGovern, said that he had never met
any one who could hit as hard as, Mc
Govern. "No matter where his punches
landed, they hurt," said Broad, "but
still I think I have a chance to beat
him. I put him down twice and I know
now that he can be knocked out as well
as any other fighter. I am willing to
take a chance with him at any time."
Joe Macias, Rroal's manager, also
thinks that McGovern can be knocked
out, and that Broad is the man who can
do it.
"There is no truth in the story that
Broad has been matched with McGovern
for another tight," said Macias today,
"or that there is an understanding be
tween Sam Harris and myself to that
effect. Harris simply gave me a prom
ise that he would make a match for
some future date provided McGovern's
theatrical engagements do not interfere
and there is a purse in sight. Harris
says he prefers a 20 round fight next
time."
Broad does not show any marks of his
recent battle with McGovern, in spite of
the stories which were sent out from
the Windy City to the effect that he had
been cut into ribbons by McGovern,

Emporia Normal Football
Eleven
Make3 Score 18 to 0.
Emporia, Kan., Nov. 22. Kansas uni
versity and the Kansas State Normal
football teams met here yesterday after
noon and the contest resulted in a vic
tory for the latter by a score of IS to 0.
Kansas university was big, heavy and
confident of victory. Last year they
won by 35 to 0, and at Lawrence some
days ago tied the Normals by a score
of 6 to 6.
The game began at 3 o'clock with a
light wind at Normal's back. Normal
kicked off twenty-five yards, tried an
end run, but lost the ball on a fumble,
and Myers fell on the ball. Normal
started, down the field from Kansas uni
versity's fifty-yard line, and by five,
ten and fifteen yard gains Caldwell was
pushed over for a touchdown three min
utes after the ball was put in play. Tur
kleson kicked an easy goal. Score, 6
to 0. Kansas university kicked off to
the tw-nty-yard line. Middlekauf re
turned fifteen yards, Caldwell was sent
on a close end play for eight yards.
Myers went through the tackle for five
yards. Fisher went around the end for
twenty-five yards, but here Kansas uni
versity braced up and held Normal for
downs; tried three times, made two
yards and punted for twenty-five yards.
Middlekauf returned about five yards
and Normal failed to forward the pig
skin. Kansas university forced Normal
to their two-yard line. Here Normal
dug their toes into the ground and
stopped Kansas university in their.
tracks, and immediately started down
the field with 10S yards to gain. With
out losing the ba'1, Fisher and Turkle
san, the giant tackles; Caldwell, the
ever-present etar; Myers and Peterson,
the half and full, crossed the line with
perfect interference and Turkleson
kicked a second goal. Score, 12 to 0.
Kansas university kicked off to Mid
dlekauf, who waited for his interference
and advanced fifteen yards with the
ball. On the twenty-yard line Peterson
was sent around left end, and with
Caldwell's beautiful blocking he was
given an open field. After four men had
received the stiff arm from Caldwell
they dashed behind the goal, having run
ninety yards. Once more Turkleson sent
the sphere sailing between the posts.
Score, 18 to 0. Kansas university kicked
for the third time to Middlekauf, who
gained about twenty yards. With the
bail on Kansas university's forty-yard
line in Normal possession the half ended.
Score, 18 to 0.
THE THANKSGIVING GAME.
Some Pointers as to the Relative
Strength of K. U. and the Tigers.
The result of the Kansas-Nebraska
game at Lawrence Saturday has fur
nished the best line on the capabilities
and comparative strength of the Jay
hawks and the Missouri Tigers yet
given this season. Kansas was beaten
by a score of 12 to 0, but writhout dis
grace to its team. Some two weeks ago
Missouri was beaten by a like score in
a game that threw discredit on the
kickers of Rollins' field.
Kansas went into Saturday's game
with a team weakened by cripples and
a big hospital list- Tucker, the Kan
sans' tower of strength at half, was out
of the game with his injured side. Odle,
the plugging Kansas fullback, was lack

ing, too, being at home with his broken
leg.
When Missouri met Nebraska at Co
lumbia the Tiger team was rent with
the dissensions aroused by the faculty's
strict interpretation of the amateur rule.
For three days the men had flatly re
fused to get into their football clothes
for practice. Then, when the Nebraska
date was to be filled, the Tigers went
into the game with a partly green team
and gave their best exhibition of foot
ball this season.
When one views these facts, the
Thanksgiving game promises to be the
closest and most interesting played in
Kansas City since 1S95.
Here is given a table which shows the
points each team has made in the
Thanksgiving games for the last nine
years:

BIG JACK DOYLE.
Wanted For Fir3t Base by the Man
agement of the Pirates.
Pittsburg, Nov. 22. W. W. Kerr,
treasurer of the Pittsburg Baseball club,
stated this afternoon that Manager Fred
Clarke would like to have Jack Doyle
to play first base for the Pirates next
season, and that his wish will be grati
fied if possible.
"We are perfectly willing to pay the
price for Doyle, either in money or ma
terial, as we realize that first class men
cannot be had for the asking, but we
will not give up Jimmy Williams to get
a first baseman," said Captain Kerr.
"We have a lot of good players, and,
perhaps will be able to make terms that
will be acceptable to Andrew Freedman.
President Dreyfuss will be in New York
a great deal this winter, so he and Mr.
Freedman may discuss an exchange at
their leisure."
The report that Harry C. Pulliam has
decided to go to the Chicago club was
denied Jesse Tannehill and Tom O'Brien
of the Pittsburg club and Charley Hick
man of the New Tork team arrived.
They have had all the Cuban experi
ence they care for. O'Brien contracted
a fever in Havana. Tannehill reports a
peculiar condition. He says that the
Cubans seem to dislike the Americans,
but that the Spanish are very friendly.
PATCHED IT UP.
Jeffries and His Brother Again
on
Speaking Terms.
New Tork, Nov. 22. Champion Jim
Jeffries and his brother Jack have
patched up their grievances. The latter
will in the future be the big boiler
maker's sparring partner. The two had
a falling out owing to the fact that
Jack took up fighting as a business
against the wishes of the champion.
It is evident that Kid McCoy intends
to remain away from this country for
an indefinite period. It is said that he
has sold his cafe to his brother Homer
and that he has no idea of going into
the saloon business again.
There is talk of Tom Sharkey meeting
an unknown heavyweight at Philadel
phia within the next two weeks.
STILL IN A HOSPITAL.
Big Old John L. Is Peeling Like a
Two-Year-Old.
New Tork, Nov. 22. John L. Sullivan,
who is a patient at the Polyclinic hospi
tal, on East Thirty-fourth street, is
gradually recovering from the effects of
the painful operation which has necessi
tated his confinement and has lost over
nineteen pounds since he took to his
bed. The los3 of flesh is gratifying to
the big fellow, who has grown too stout
during the past five years. He is look
ing better and younger than he has in
years, and says that he feels as lively
as a 2-year-old.
WALCOTT MATCHED.
The Black Wonder to Box Bill Han
rahan. New Tork, Nov. 22 Articles of agree
ment have been signed for a match
of twenty rounds between Joe Walcott
and Bill Hanrahan, to be decided at the
Kmpire club at Hartford on December
13. The contest will be for a part of
the gate receipts, 75 per cent to the win
ner and 25 per cent to the loser.
Jeffries Wants the Belt
New Tork, Nov. 22. Jim Jeffries, the
heavyweight champion of the world, has
decided to sue Richard K. Fox for the
diamond belt the latter has repeatedly
stated is the property of any champion
that has fought for it and wen his right
to it by defeating the other heavy
weights. Jeffries claims that as he has
defeated Bob Fitzsimmons, Tom Shar
key and Jim Corbett and has never been
beaten, he is the rightful claimant of
the belt.
Wants to Box Sharkey.
New Tork, Nov. 22. Peter Maher said
today that he will take a trip to Louis
ville in a few days to see the match
maker of the Nonpareil Athletic club of
that city regarding the proposed match
with Gus Ruhlin. Maher, who is in
fairly good shape, declares that if he
cannot come to terms with the "Akron
Giant" he will ask the club to hang up
a purse for himself and Tom Sharkey.

Citizens Victimized.
Affable Young Stranger Creates
a Sensation.
DESERTS HIS BRIDE.
Borrows Money Right and Left
Then Disappears.
Promised Many Boys Places
With Eastern Relatire.
Hutchinson, Nov. 22. An affair re
cently occurred in the west part of Reno
county which has brought forth the
righteous wrath of the people there and
if the offender could be found there is
not a doubt but that the wrath of the
citizens would be ventilated to a good
purpose. Little has been known regard
ing the affair outside of the .neighbor
hood where it occurred, but it is under
stood that a number of people are in
teresting themselves in the search for
a yeiung man who suddenly disappeared
a week or so ago. The full particulars
of the young man's stay in the county
are not known here. It appears that he
stopped in the west part of the county
several months ago, giving out the im
pression that he was a person of some
importance at St- Louis, but had decid
ed to spend a few months in the coun
try for the purpose of improving hi3
health. He managed to gain the con
fidence of the people of the neighbor
hood and about the middle of last month
was married to an attractive young lady
of good family in Sylvia township. His
marriage seems to have been another
step to gain further the confidence of the
people of that neighborhood.
All the time, it appears, he was pav
ing the way to fleece the friends lie had
made. About two weeks after his mar
riage he disappeared, taking with him
several hundred dollars which belonged
to his friends. Some of the money was
advanced by young men whom he prom
ised positions with some relative. He
had an arrangement with the boys to
give them places and they had advanced
money to cover transportation. Some
of the money had been secured from
friends in other ways. He seems to have
been a ready and plausible talker. The
money he secured under false pretenses,
while perhaps the only thing for which
he could be handled legally, is the
smallest part of the offense. His mar
riage and almost immediate desertion is
the most shameful part of the affair,
and the neighborhood which he has just
left would not be a very healthy place
for him just at present.
The people of Reno county would mo
doubt all be in favor of a big reward
being offered by the county for the
man's arrest.
He was followed to Wichita by some
of the people he had fleeced, and there
he was lost track of.
AFTER NATURAL GAS.
Company Formed to Drill Wells at
Arkansas City.
Arkansas City, Nov. 22 The Arkansas
City Commercial club at its last meet
ing started the natural gas problem.
For years it has been known that gas
exists here in paying quantities and
several efforts have been made to find
it, but all have failed to bring forth the
desired flow. At this meeting it was de
cided to organize and charter a stock
company, to be known as the Arkansas
City Gas and Mineral company. Sub
scriptions were asked for at the meet
ing, and 223 shares were subscribed. To
day several men with subscription lists
started out among the merchants, and
the desired $5,000 was soon promised.
This amount is to be used only as a
the closing century, now crowding
sportsmen.

The ground upon which the prospect

A MENNONIIE COLLEGE.
Members of This Sect Contemplate
Building at Peabody.
Peabody, Nov. 22. A committee was
here Monday looking for a location to
build a college to be established under
the auspices of the Mennonite Brethren.
The committee included J. J. Harms of
Medford, Ok.; P. Reiger of North Knid,
Ok.; H. P. Schroeder of Moundridge,
Kan.; D. D. Gltasen and Frank Hein
richs of Kansas.
The location at Peabody would place
the college on two lines of railway, w hii h
would make it accessible to the great
body of their people who live in Okla
homa, Kansas, Nebraska and the Da
kotas, and it would be desirable for a
good many other reasons, including its
good common schools, its public library
and its liberal church-going people.
A meeting of the Commercial club
was held and the committee presented
its wishes and aims to the club. After
duly considering the subject, the opin
ion seemed to prevail that the silk sta
tion grounds could be secured. A com
mittee of Peabody citizens was appoint
ed to take charge of the matter, Mr. K.
F. Davidson, Dr. L. A. Buck and Dr.
O. J. Furst, and the committee of
brethren will correspond with them.
The brethren were favorably impress
ed with Peabody and its citizens and
the location of the college here is almost
assured.
THE GIRL REFUSED HIM.
Russell County Member of the 20th
Returns to the War.
Salina, Nov. 22. Another romance of
the Twentieth Kansas regiment that
"didn't run smooth," has had a chapter
added in the departure this month for
Manila, on the Sherman, of a Russell
county member of company M of Fun
ston's famous regiment. This corporal
was a student at the Salina Normal un
iversity when war was declared, and
served through to the end, and came
home to the great reception at Topeka,
refusing the tempting inducements to
stay in the Philippines because of a
Jewell county beauty who had been a
fellow student. After further work in
the university the ex-soldier accepted a
cashiership in the Luray State bank, and
prepared to establish a home, but his
inamorita at this point refused, and the
disappointed warrior.smarting under his
first defeat, at once enlisted in the Six
teenth United States infantry for three
years, and left as stated above, for the
scene of conflict, expecting to thu3 for
get the Jewell City maid.
SUICIDE BY HANGING.
Reno County Farmer Found Dead in
a Barn.
Hutchinson, Nov. 22. Jesse McCune
committed suicide by hanging himself
in a barn on a farm near Castleton, a
station fifteen miles south of here on
the Hutchinson '& Southern. The body
was found last evening, but he had been
missing since Saturday night. He had
once been an inmate of an insane
asylum, but had been out for several
years. It is supposed that he again be
came insane. He was a well-known
farmer, but had only recently moved
with his family on the farm where he
was found.
QUAILS FOR THE SOUTH.
About 500 of the Little Game Birds
Shipped From Wichita.
Wichita, Nov. 22. About 500 live quail
were shipped from this point recently to
South Carolina, to stock up some hunt
ing preserves. They were in canvas
crates abiut six inches high, one com
partment en top of the other. Their
food and water were placed in troughs
on the eutside of the crates, and the
quail aid not sesm to be much frighten

Atchison Bridge Funds.
Atchison, Nov. 22. The case against
the Atchison & Eastern Bridge com
pany for the recovery of deposits with
drawn from the Atchison National bank
a few minutes before the closing of its
doors, and after a telegram had been
sent to Washington announcing that the
