TO HITCH HER DOUBLE Fastest Trotting Sisters on the American Turf. Owner Will Make a Trial for World's Team Record. Chicago. Nov. 23. After a long hunt, C. K. O. Billings, president of the Peo ples Gas Light and Coke company, is in a fair way of adding another world's harness record to his already famous stable. Mr. Billings has come into the possession of Mabel Onward, after pay ing the highest price that any horse ever brought at auction in Chicago. The mare was bought for Mr. Billings by Murray Howe at the Chicago horse sale at the stock yard3 and the price paid was $5,9)0. Mr. Howe purchased the daughter of Shadeland Onward with the express purpose in view of getting a mate for Mr. Billings' Lucille. When the two are hitched together on the Xew York speedway Air. Billings will go after the world's team record, now held by Mr Hamlin's Belle Hamlin and Honest Oeorge. Several weeks ago Mr. Billings was told that Mabel Onward would make an excellent mate for his famous mare Lucille, holder of the world's record to wagon. He called on Murray Howe and told him to get the mare. Price was no object if Mr. Howe thought the mare would suit him. HOWE AUTHORIZED TO BUY. Mr. Billings took Mr. Howe around to his financial agent with the introduc tion: "This is Mr. Howe. He is going to buy a mate for Lucille. Give him all the money he asks for." Yesterday Mr. Howe went to the stock yards. In the course of the afternoon Mabel Onward, owned and bred by I. E. Iuty of David City, Neb., was brought to the block. There were a dozen bid ders from the start. When the bidding had reached the notch of $4,luO Mr. Howe stepped In. Hundred by hundred the price soared. Daniel Mahaney, rep resenting Senator Jones of New Hamp shire, stopped at $4,600. It was said that V. C Brown, general manager of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad, was also after the mare for Malcolm Forbes of Boston. John G. Creighton of Omaha stuck the longest, however, but dropped out at $5,S0O. Howe bid another hundred and got the mare. Mabel Onward will be shipped to New York immediately. Mr. Billings at pres ent is in the eastern metropolis, where lie has all his horses. The new purchase is a bay mare by Shadeland Onward, dam Sentinel Belle, and a full sister of Phoebe Onward, who was also sold yesterday at the sale for J1.750. The two make the fastest trot ting sisters on the American turf. Mabel's record is 2:11, made last fall at Dubuque, Iowa, in a race where she forced Contralto to do better than 2:10. Contralto, by the way, will be sold at New York next week. GRAND MATE FOR LUCILLE. Mabel is 5 years old and has had one foal which died. She has never been consistently trained for the race track, but it is confidently predicted for her that if she falls into the hands of good trainers ;he will come close to the world s record. She is a beautiful bay, with black points and without a white hair on her body. She stands fifteen and one-half hands high, almost exactly the same height as Lucille, who is of a similar color. Lucille, whose mate Mabel will be, holds the world's wagon trotting record f 2:07. which was made at Lexington last fall. , Mr. Billings now has a stable second to none in the country.

The Metropolitan, race tracks ottered in stakes and purses during the Eeaaoti just closed, II, 362,000. Two hundred and twenty owners were fortunate enough to win a part of this fortune, while 5,1)00 horses raced for It James R. Keene heads the list of win ners. The Wall street millionaire won a small fortune with his stable. With 24 horses he won $111,357. Tommy At kins captured J14,(50; Commando,$41,000; t-etrucnio, jiu.iio; voter, 510.130. William C. Whitney finished below hia turf rival. His stable won $92,545, of which Ballyhoo Bey's share was $37,690: Prince Charles, I13.S15: Killashandra, $9,905, while others added small amounts to the sum totai. The third man on the list is Sam Hildreth, a professional turfman. Hil dreth's success was phenomenal. He bought a number of horses out of sell ing races, horses that were considered selling platers, yet by some mysterious system of training he made those horses beat stake horses. For instance. Beau Gallant beat Commando in the Matron Stakes. Many think the better horse won, but the stewards thought differ ently, and Jockey Spencer, who rode Commando, lost his license. Hildreth's stable placed $50,263 to his credit. Beau Gallant won him $25,115; King Bramble, $3,270; Gonfalon, $4,385. Charles Fleischmann's Sons were next with $4i.317 to their credit. Their chief winner was Bonnibert, $24,967, while Ir ritable got $9,3,5, and Blues, $8,830. Perry Belmont, through his good colt Ethelbert. is fifth on the list. He won $36,690. of which sum $33,020 was due to tne son or li then. Pierre Lorillard won $32,670. David Garrick by defeating Ethelbert, gave $23,700 of this sum. Twelve others made up the remaining $9,000. John F fechorr had a small stable in the east, but all were good horses. Alaid heiiecK, a black colt, heads the stable with $11,300; Greenock won $5,630; Lady Schorr. $6.S70: Lieber Karl, $2,130; Sil- verOale, $2,540. Prince of Melbourne.probably the best 3 year old of the year, made F. D.Reard. who won $27140, the next on the list. The prince won $21,bfi5. Eastin & I.arrabce's Kinley Mac, the horse of the year, added $25,475 to the $26,190 won by his stable. It will be re membered that this good colt won the Brooklyn Handicap and the Suburban. Charles Littlelield won $24,62S; H E Leigh, $24 191; G. B. Morris, $23,640; A. L. Aste, $22.120f of which sum Jack Point contributed $17,400; O. L. Richards, $21, 215; W. M. Barrick, 520,445; R. W. Wal den & Sons, $19,202; Harness & Bross man. $18,690, of which Imp won $18,125. Of all the really good horses this mare has been asked to run oftener than any of them. She has run more races than Kinley Mac, Ethelbert, McKeekin and David Garrick combined, and in nearly all the races the handicapper almost mada It impossible for her to win. MEDICS IN TEXAS. Kansas City Doctors Play Bryan Football Eleven Six to Six. Bryan. Tex., Nov. 23. With weather like that of a June day, the Medicos met the team of the Agricultural and Me chanical college this afternoon.the game resulting in a tie. each side scoring six points. The Medics were some lighter than the home team, but at no time during the game was their line in dan ger frum straight football. The doctors played a listless game owing to their trip and the warm weather, while the home team played fast and snappy, but were repeatedly penalized for nff nirto play. The Medics used their tackle back piays to good advantage and gained more ground than their opponents, but fumbling often. Their defense, had it been more snappy, would have been very effectual. The stars of the A M C. tam were Captain Schultz and Right Half Back Boone, they carrying the ball well and tackling brilliantly. The game was free from any rough play and was remarkable on account of the punting both teams kicking time after time. MORETOFOLL0W. End of the Liimon Lynching Affair Seems to Be Far Of Denver, Colo., Nov. 23. A special to the Times from Kansas City, Mo., says: Robert W. Frost, father of LoUjse Frost, who was murdered at Limon, Colo., was here this week to consult Chief of Police Hayes. Frost believes Arthur Porter was implicated in the murder with his brother, who was burn ed at the stake, and acting under the advice of Hayes, has secured the ser vices of Assistant Marshal Sam Jones of Lawrence to watch the Porters there and endeavor to get evidence. ) CKOKER ACROSS.

C. Berry of 730 Hancock street, veteran member of Co. B, 4iHh Ohio Vol unteer Infantry, says: "I was bothered with my kidneys ever since the war, and at times the pains in my limbs and back were so acute that I could hardly walk. Rest at night was out of the question during an attack, and there was a terribly distressing and annoying weakness of the action of the kidney secretions. I tried every remedy I knew about but without permanent relief un til I procured Doan's Kidney Pills at Rowley & Snow's drug store. Since taking them I have been better in every respect and my health is better than it has been for years." For sale by all dealers. Price 59 cents. Foster-Miiburn Co.. Buffalo, N.

Ex-Army Captain's Case Up For " Hearing in Leavenworth. Leavenworth, Kan., Nov. 23. The habeas corpus proceedings brought by the attorneys of Oberlin M. Carter, late captain of engineers, TJ. S. A., to show cause why Warden McClaughry of the federal prison should not release .the prisoner were opened in the United States district court today. Judge Amos Thayer, of St. Louis, Bat with Judge HooK, of Una city, in tne case, uaner was brought from prison to the court room in an ambulance unattended save by Warden McClaughry. He appeared self-possessed as he took his seat and avoided the gaze of the spectators who crowded the room. The ex-captain was attired in a new black Buit, which the warden had at the prisoner's earnest solicitation permitted him to substitute for his prison garb. His hair and heavy mustache were much grayer than before he began serving his term and his face was wan. Frank P. Blair of Chicago and Con gressman Grosvenor of Ohio appeared for Carter, while Colonel J. W. Clous, deDutv iudee advocate general of the army, and District Attorney I. E. Lam bert and his assistant, H. E. Bone, rep resented the government. IX S. Carter of Illinois, an uncle of the prisoner, was in attendance. Judee Thayer limited Carter's attorneys to three hours and the government to two ana one-nan hours' argument. Attorney Blair open ed for .Carter, whose conviction, he al leged, was illegal inasmuch as it should have been secured under the sixtieth ar ticle of war instead of the sixty-second, and that when the president disap proved several findings in a court mar tial the full sentence pronounced by the court martial ceased to exist and its execution was illegal and void. He also argued that when Carter paid a fine and was dismissed from the army and de graded, the power of the court martial was exnaustoa ana Dore no ngnt iu cause imprisonment. TOLD HER FORTUNE. Mrs. Frank's Warning to Mrs. Metzler Was Verified. The preliminary hearing of Mrs. Sam Frank and William Bryan for robbing F. S. Metzler's house at 917 Clay street of money and rings to the value of $720, was commenced in the city court this morning. The robbery was committed In the afternoon by a man who found the mon ey in a box and the rings in the pocket of a nightgown. At the time of the robbery Mrs. Metzler was visiting at a neighbors by the name of Mrs. Tuttle. Mrs. E. A. Austin saw the man enter the house but can not describe him. On the day of the robbers Mrs. Frank was in Mrs. Metzler's home and Mrs. Metz ler showed her where the money and Jewelry were. That afternoon Mrs.Frank and Mrs. Metzler were at Mrs. Tuttle's. Mrs. Metzler did not wear her rings. Af ter seeing her Mrs. Frank left the house for a few moments and then returned. When she returned she told Mrs. Metz ler's fortune with cards and said she, Mrs. Metzler, was about to suffer a great loss and that something was going on then that would worry her. Soon after Mrs. Metzler went home and discovered the robbery. Santa Fe Rumors. Local railroad people were much In terested toiay In two rumors. One was to the effect that the Santa Fe has leas ed the St. Louis, Kansas City & Color ado, which if extended to a junction point, would give them a line into .St. Louis erd terminal fae'li'ies. its j.lausa bility and desirability is great, but no authentic Information can be had. Ow ing to conditions in the territory there is small foundation for a dispatch from Guthrie stating that the Rock Island is surveying a branch line eastward from that point. Senator Mason Can't Walk.

The secretary of state has addressed an identical note to the powers interested in the Chinese situation setting out tersely and afresh tne object of the United States govern ment as to China and pointing out how such objects aa are common to the pow ers can best be secured. The note marks the initiation of fresh negotiations on our part on the arrangement of new bases to tide over the impossible situa' tion created at the last meeting of the ministers in .fekin. borne responses al ready are at hand and it is stated that generally our advances have been well received and the state department ex presses satisfaction with the progress so tar achieved. It is believed that the note is an appeal from the extreme course suggested by some of the powers as to xne treatment or cnina, especially in the matter of punishments and in demnities to which the ministers at Pe- kin seemed inclined. The intent is to pusn tne negotiations on a more ration a land businesslike basis. ' HOMAGE OF LYONS. Extended to President Kruger on His Arrival. Lyons, Department of Rhone, Nov. "3. There was a great demonstration here when Mr. Kruger's train arrived. ne assistant mayor welcomed the for mer president and presented him with a beautiful gold medal especially en graved for the occasion. On one side was the head of a woman, representing the city of Lyons, and an the reverse the words: "The homage of the citizens- of Lyons to jfresaaenx JK.ruger in remembrance of his heroic defense of the South African republics. Mr. Kruger replying to th speech on tne presentation of the medal, said: "I am profoundly touched at the hom age, respect and sympathy coming from entire France. Give my thanks to the population of Lyons. It Is a just cause which animates you; a cause- for France ana tor all .Europe to safeguard. I am firm in the conviction that our hopes win be realized. We are hoping- with you. The Boer statesman then descended from his carriage and walked towards the entrance of the station, which caused the cheers to be redoubled. The crowd eventually broke through the po lice cordons and Mr. Kruger regained his carriage with difficulty. LOCAL MENTION. There was but one "drunk" in the po lice court this morning.

''?mmmmmmmnmm mm mmmnmmnmmimmfmm IRRIGATION IN EAST. Discnssed Before the Congress hy Prof. Yoorhees, Chicago, Nov. 23. Today's session of the National Irrigation congress was devoted to papers and addresses per taining exclusively to the question of practical watering and reclamation of arid lands and arid plant life. The session was called to order at 11 o'clock, Quiglet F. Best of Washing ton presiding. Wesley A. Stuart of Da kota was introduced and spoke on "What the National Irrigation Associa tion Stands For." S. M. Emery, president of the Mon tana Horticultural society of Bozeman, Mont., followed with a paper on "Prac tical Irrigation." "Irrigation and Increased Production was discussed by Prof. F. H. King of the Wisconsin agricultural experiment station. A letter from Prof. E. B. Voorhees of the New Jersey agricultural experiment station was read. It dealt with "Profits from Irrigation in the East." Prof. Voorhees said in part: "In humid districts where the total annual rainfall supplies sufficient mois ture to bring growing crops to perfec tion the application of water would not be a profitable operation. One reason for this is the misinterpretation ot meteorological data; another is the fact that losses incurred through a deficiency of water have not been carefully com puted. "As to the first, the data are accurate, but the shortage for short periods have not been regarded as serious. The fact that four inches of rainfall is recorded for one month in the growing season is not in Itself sufficient evidence that plants may not seriously suffer, and crop and production be reduced. Far mers in the east frequently have their crops ruined or partially by lack of sufficient water, due to a lack of fore thought and expenditures, which will result in full crops when other condi tions are favorable. In the east, as in the west, there are many problems oth er than the water supply itself, which have to be taken Into consideration. Where water is abundant from the streams and the topography of the land contributes to the distribution of water to the land there are questions of water righta for manufacturing purposes, questions of prior rights in reference to the water supplies of cities and towns, questions of co-operation in collecting holding and distributing watei? all of which must be considered. "Throughout the entire east, as In the states bordering on the Atlantic, the quetsion of irrigation is a practical one, worthy of study and its proper solution will mean much to the people in the utilization of their natural resources. Facilities should be provided by the states, or by the government, for - fur ther study of the problems involved in the practical working out of a system." FOOTBALL GAFiSE OFF.
