Football Endorsed by Chicago's School Superintendent. Milwaukee. Wis.. Dec 10. Terry Mc-Cov-ern is working hard, alternating gym nasium exercise with Ions-distance run ning on the road. He followed the usual routine work, taking a tenmiie run in the forenoon and putting in two hours at the gymnasium in the afternoon. He sparred with DoiiRherty and Donohue, and suc ceeded in asaln sending the big; Philadel fihian to the floor twice with rights on the Jaw. They did not spar for eiercle. but went at each other at full speed. ;Mter the bouts Terry was asked what course he intended to pursue In hla bout jwlth Gans and said: "It Is rather a delicate question, as T Jtnow- there will be a great deal of betting en the match, and as a rule my friends will wager that I stay the six rounds. Anyone who imagines that I will make a tunaway Hunt of it is mistaken, although 5 will not say how I will go about it. Jf mav take me a round or two to size s nv man up. and then 1 can octter i low to reach my man. It would be Im- fcossible for me to say Just what tactics I will adopt, as I can not tell now. Ail I vant is to reach the other fellow, and if 3 can not stop him. why. then it is be rause my power has gone back on me. J fend I don't think it has." ; When asked about the report th.f rrank Krne would challenge the win":' ! tf the bout Terry only said: "I defeat JCrne once so decisively that there c;'. " yio question about the decision, but if 3tarris savs that I am to have anoih gnatoh with th Buffalo boy. why. all w. ii end good. I will not back away from any af them near mv weight." Word was received today from the Adel r'nia Athletic club of London making an !ter of .r."oo and expenses for a battle be tween McGovern and Hen Jordan of En piand. Manager Rir.kle of the Nonpareil Ath letic club of Louisville sent an offer today u' fS.W "for a meeting of twenty rounds between Terry and Kid Broad. Manager Diarris has accepted on behalf of McGov ern. the contest to take place some time In January. There will be the largest crowd of Mil waukeeans attend the McGovern-Gans fight in Chicago on December 13 that ever 1-ft the city on a similar mission. It is Xiot estimating too high to say that fully E'V people from this city will find their way to the world's fair city the night ot the fight- A low rate has been secured nvpr the St. Paul road for the occasion und it is very probable that a special train will be run. If the steclal train is not arranged for. then the crowd will leave here at 4 o'clock smd a special coach will be attached. Ar rangements have already been made to liave two leaving the Union depot in Chit-ago at 3 o'clock in the morning and ar riving here at 5. The persons desiring can fro into the coaches at 12 o'clock, or right efter the right, so that they need not kill time about town waiting for the train. ENDORSES FOOTBALL. Superintendent of Chicago . Schools "Wants Pupils to Play. Chieaero. Deo. 10. "I do not believe a city council ot board of education can Ftop PchocUxiys from playlnsr football. I do believe it is a truly American jcame. I ? -layer! it myself when I attended col sre. anil enjoyed participation in it im mensely. However, I am of the opinion that the frame can and should be regulated o far as It pertains to our hitch school teams. I foresee no Obstacle to prevent t ueh action." This statement was made yesterday bv Fuperiiuemient of Schools Cooley in a dis cussion of the objections raised by Trus tee Hrenan aaainst the prame at the meet ing of the school managrenieTit committee. The present head of the public school sys tem is a firm believer in the ereat col lege grame anil sees no harm in it when the players are in frood physical condition nd the officials are com(etent to serve Sis the rtilers of the players. "The fatalities which have come under my notice this year have been in coses where tite players were not physicaliv ebie to withstand the vigorous treatment to which players are sometimes subject- d." continued the superintendent. "At 3irrariire. within two blocks from where I live, a hinh school boy was fatally in jured. I ascertained later that be "was j-imply tackled and brought to tiie ground by one player. There was no falling of ten or twenty men on top of him. He did not possess the stamina to stand the strain probably had a weak heart or romethin of that sort and the shock was too much for him. "It is such pupils as that -who should be rreventp-d from joining? the plavers. The iiifrh school teams should be regulated. The members should be examined bv one of the school medical inspectors and their soundness and litness to participate in the play determined by medical authori ties. Then I believe there will be few serious accidents and no fatalities." SLOAN IN CHICAGO. Suspended Jockey on His "Way to California. Chicatro, Dec. 10. Tod Sloan. the prince of jockeys, arrived in. Chicago yesterday. With him came Mr. and Mr Phil Dwyer, Jr., and his valet. J-'oilowintr the party was a squad of porters who wrestled with seven big trunks containing Sloan's wardrobe, and the ebony-hueel valet, who was piled fcifrh with valises and satchels and many packag-es. Mr. Sloan went im mediately to the apartments reserved for him in the Auditorium Annex, where he was yeen last night. The little Jockey is heavier than he has been In many months. "I am grow in? as big as a house," was the wav he expressed it. His waistcoat fits snug and tight and the little American un bhishingly acknowledged that he act ually weighed 114 pounds. However, this he considers is not so much of a weight, for the exercise that he is to take on the Pacific coast will pull him donn to proper trim again. Hefnre starting for California, how ever. Tod Sloan will give the trap shoot ers of Chicago a few pointers on how to bring down the clay birds. He in quired with much interest yesterday as to which pun club was the best to at tend and will devote probably this af ternoon to perfecting his shooting in reparation for his hunting trip in the west. "If I sro back to England for whom shall I ride? Well, the Prince of Wales is the only man with whom I would Fign. I would far rather be a free lance, and In my career on the British turf I have been under contract to but two Knglish gentlemen, and those two were the prince and Lord William Beres ford. Otherwise I have ridden the mounts that I have wanted and at the request of th? owners." The trouble in Kngland that resulted In Tod Sloan bein suspended from the British turf took place in the big Cam frridgeshiie race. Sloan was mounted on Codoman, and. in addition to his salary for riding-, the owner, F. Gardner of Australia, promised him. a. large sum U the horse won. Althougk the torse did hot Win, finishing second, the! stew ards of the club found that Sloan was guilty of an infringement of one of the rules. C. A. Mills, Gardner's agent, was lined 25, as was his principal, and drastic justice was meted out to Jockej Sloan although he protested his in nocence of any intent at wrongdoing. PAUL PONS INDEED A GIANT. French Wrestler Puta the Gigantic Jeffries in Shada For Measurements Chicago, ec. 10. Paul Pons, "the noblest (Greco)-Roman of them all," the French wrestler who will tackle Rooney, the gripman, is in reality a veritable gi ant. Articles have been signed for the match to take place at the. Coliseum tonight. From the looks of Pons Roo ney will have hut little show. Pons stands 6 feet 6 inches in height and weighs 290 pounds.

Calf Pons 16.88 inches; Jeffries 16 inches. Among those who have fallen before the mighty Frenchman are Nolat, Apo'. lo, Sebastian Miller, Tom Cannon, An toine Pierri, Cristol and others. Wrhat he considers as the nearest he ever came to defeat was in his match with Youssouf. the Turk. The match was wrestled at the Folies Bergeres. Paris. In that bout the two men pulled and strained and tussled for two hours. At the end of that time neither man had scored a fall and the referee called the affair a draw. Pons has been in the country but four weeks, and has made one appearance in America. That was last Friday night, when he overcame Pienlng, New York's "Butcher Boy." Pons started his training yesterday with a five mile run through the parks. He says he needs little training-, as he is always in shape. MADDEN BUYS COLTS.

Kansas in Washington Tells of the Congressman's Past. Washington. D. C., Dec. 10. Congress man Charles Curtis, of Kansas, frequently referred to as the "Indian of the House, is one of the most prominent characters in national legislation from the west. He is the first ranking member of the com mittee on Indian affairs, before which a number of important bills are now pend ing. Owing to his thorough familiarity with Indian legislation his advice is more generally sought after than any other member of that committee. The other night Mr. Curtis was made the object of an interesting story. While sitting in a hotel lobby discussing his ef forts in congress a Kansas man, sur rounded by a clan of Jayhawkers. told of thre ambitious life of Curtis when a boy and his legal career, which story, he said, had been given but little publicity even at home. The story goes, that on one summer flay in the early '70s A. it. Case sat reading in his law office in Topeka. when the door opened and a dark-haired, dark skinned lad entered. He was a sturdy, well-built youth of about fourteen years, and his coal black eyes and hair and high cheek bones suggested the Indian blood, which flowed in his veins. His clean but patched clothing bespoke poverty, but there was a manly nir about him as be stepped up to the Judge, who turned and sulci: "Why, Charlie, you' seem to be in a good deal of a hurry for such a hot day. What's up now?" "Oh. I'm not in a hurry. Judge Case," replied the boy energetically, "but I've been thinking of something for a long time, and I've got to decide it now, and I've come to ask you something," and then he stopped abruptly as though he hardly knew how to frame his question after all. "Well," said the judge, having laid aside his book, "what is it?" "I have decided to make a lawyer of myself, and I want an education, and I want to know if you can't give me a chance to do your office work and, in pay for It, let me read law with you?" "Well, well! I hardly know what to sny to that proposition," said the judge. "There are more poor lawyers already than the profession can support." "But there aren't more good ones, and I'm not going to make a poor lawyer ot myself, Judge Case." replied the boy quickly. "There's room up round the top of things, isn't there? I hope you will take me and give me a chance, for I'm bound to be a lawyer, and I'll promise you I won't be a poor one if hard work and study will make me a good one." "If you feel that way about it," replied the judge, "I guess I will venture to take you in on your own terms:" and the next day Curtis began his career. In 1SS1 he w as admitted to the bar, and shortly afterward began practicing with Judge Ciise. He soon won a local reputa tion, and in 1884 he was elected county at torney of Shawnee. In ISti he was re elected to the same office, and during that entire term he did not lose a single case in the district court. SERVED SEVEN YEARS Of 13 Tears' Sentence Un justly Inflicted. Philadelphia. Dec. 10. After serving seven years of a 13-years sentence in the eastern penitentiary here, James Parker, of Hillsdale, N. J., has been released as innocent of the crimes with which he was charged. Parker, who is not 27 vears old, obtained employment at Bordentown in 1!1, and two years later was arrested on the charge of stealing a watch. Later it was found the watch had been mislaid by the owner, and the charge with withdrawn and Parker was released. Parker then came to this state and re sided in Buck's county. One night he re mained at a hotel and in the morning donned a suit of clothes hanging in the room, mistaking it for his own. He was arrested on the charge of larceny and at his trial a constable from New Jersey tes tified that the defendant had been pre viously arrested for larceny. This mili tated against him and he was sentenced to 13 years imprisonment Recent Parker wrote to a friend pro testing his innocence. The matter was in vestigated and it was found the suit which Parker had left at the hotel was of better quality than the one he had put on in mistake. Upon presentation of these facts the board of pardons unani mously gave Parker his liberty. SUB-WAYS IX LONDON. American Promoter Succeeds With Underground Railway Project New York, Dec. 10. H. C. Davis, ot the brokerage firm of A. A. Housman & Co., who has been in London repre senting the Yerkes syndicate, which is to build the new underground railway in that city, returned on the Deutsch land. Concerning the proposed road, Davis said: "The work of construction is likely to begin now at any moment. It will be about eight miles in length. The tubes will be wider than the central London underground railway and electric mo tive power will be used. It is intended to connect with all the different surface and underground railway systems of London. The central London road has been a great success, carrying approxi mately one hundred and forty thousand passengers a day. When the City Im perial volunteers returned from South Africa the number traveling In one day reached a total of two hundred and thirty-six thousand. The new system is t be known as the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead railway. I can't say just now how much the road will cost or how long It will take to built it."

Enraged Father Leayes a Church Meeting TOAVEXGE DISHONOR. Fractures Skull of a Young Farmer Who'CIaims to Be Innocent of Any Wrongdoing. Douglas, Kan. Dec. 10. Butler county Is experiencing another sensation"ln aii dition to the Jessie Morrison case. Last Sunday morning at the South Methodist church in Bloomington town ship, nine miles northeast of Douglas, Crit Elder struck Lum Hughes on the head with a piece of board, fracturing his skull and knocking him senseless for a time. It was reported that Hughes had been killed by the blow, but this is a mistake he is recovering. Mr. Elder claims justification for his act on the ground that Hughes had im posed great indignities upon his 14-year-old daughter. Last Friday evening there was an oyster supper in the neighborhood which was attended by several of the young people of the Eider family. Lum Hughes took one of the Elder girls home in his buggy. After arriving home she told her mother something, which her mother told the father, and which wor ried the parents very much. Mr. Elder determined upon taking action in the mat ter, and consulted or communicated with one or two of his closest friends on the subject. Saturday he looked for Hughes, but did not find him. Sunday morning he went to the South Methodist Sunday school, and just as the closing hymn was being sung he saw Huges drive up in his buggy. He immediately got up and went out. picking up a piece of board and struck him a severe blow across the side and back of the head. We are told he would have followed up the work but for the timely interference of some of his friends. Though the victim of the blow was bleeding at the eyes and nose and the injury appeared fatal, he recovered con sciousness after a time and the doctor says there appears to be no reason why he should not get well. Hughes denies that his actions toward the young girl were of a nature to merit such treatment. He says he was alto gether surprised, and had no idea that Mr. Elder was angry with him.

LEAVES HIS CREDITORS. Highland Hog Shipper's Address Wanted by Those at Home. Highland, Dec.10. Ed French left last week for parts unknown and his ab sence is mourned by many creditors. He lived two miles north of Highland and bore a good reputation. He bought hogs in this section and made irequent snip ments. But when he made his last ship ment a week or so ago he failed to pay a great many from whom he bought hogs. He also overdrew his account at the Citizens' State bank at Highland, $97 and the banker believing that he would be in in a few days to square up the de ficiency raid the account. When French left for St. Joseph -with his last shipment he wrote the bank that he would straighten up the account.

Mr. Case of Highland went down to recover a mortgaged wagon but Ed French's brother-in-law, Gurwell, had the wagon. The action of Mr.Frenoh is the subject of considerable specula tion. Some believe he played a whole sale game of scoop and left with the money never to return while others be lieve that he somehow became hopeless ly involved and did not have the courage to face his many creditors. SWING SCAFFOLD FALLS. Two Salina Men Injured, One of Them Dangerously. Salina, Dec. 10. M. L. Baird lies in sensible at his home with a severe bruise on his head and a deep scalp wound and hiB spinal column injured as a result of a 35 foot fall from a scaffold at the Sa lina mill. When the accident occurred, E. L Swain and Mr.Baird were upon the scaf fold which had been drawn up near the eaves of the mill, 50 or 60 feet above the ground. Without the slightest warning the west supports of the scaffold gave way, allowing the west end of the scaf fold to drop down. Mr. Baird managed to retain his hold on the end of the scaffold until it had fallen to a point within 12 or 15 feet of the shed roof below him. There he lost his hold and fell backwards, striking on the shed roof with his head and should ers. The force of the fall was sufficient to break three 2x6 rafters in the shed roof. Mr. Swain hung to his end of the scaf fold and when the west end had fallen, glided down the ladders and alighted on the shed roof upon his feet. He sus tained no injuries beyond the jar from, his jump. Mr. Baird was picked up in an insensi ble condition and immediately removed to his home, where Dr. Crawford exam ined his injuries. The examination showed that his head was severely bruised, with a deep scalp wound, caused by a standing beam in the shed roof, and that a small bone at the end of his spinal column was broker. Beyond this the doctor is unable to say anything.although the patient may have suffered internal injuries. He has not yet gained consciousness. This is not Mr. Baird's first fall. Two or three years ago he fell from Hum barger's house near Salina and sustain ed some severe injuries about the head and only recently he walked backwards Off of a two-story house In Salina, sus taining a serious fall. Mr. Swain, his patrrier in the acci dent, had a narrow escape, after alight ing on the shed roof, from the falling timbers. Pieces struck not more than a couple of feet from him. HAND BLOWN OFF.

Curtis of Farmington township pulled a loaded shotgun out from behind the bed, with the usual result in such cases, ex cept that the gentleman didn't lose his life. He had his hand over the muzzle and when the hammer caught on some thing. -as it always does, and the piece was discharged, his left hand paid the penalty. An ugly hole was blown through the palm, shattering the bones and tearing and burning the flesh in a fearful man ner. He was brought to town, with bleeding member wrapped in cloths, and until the doctors agreed on the method of operation and got him under the in fluence of chloroform he suffered great ly. Drs. Leigh, Callender, Hill and Jeffery were present in consultation and it was finally decided to remove the fore and middle fingers and the shattered bones in the hand, attaching the thumb to the third finger.

The Miners" union and the County Coal Operators' club, composed of the largest operators in this district, have pooled their interests and are endeavor ing to work a scheme whereby the price of coal can, or may be, advanced. The operators at their joint meetings, it is said, appointed a committee composed of members of the Miners' union, to wait upon and inform all small op erators that unless they agree to the terms of the Mt. Carmel and a few other wealthy mine owners, that they will be "frozen out" and obliged to close their work. Nearly all the miners are mem bers of the union and the means em ployed is to force all miners from the independent operators. It Is now said that all the operators above Joined the combine except two, the co-operative and J. Jones. As soon as they are forced to enter into their agreement coal, as a matter of course, will be advanced in price from 10 to 25 per cent, without any benefit to the miners. New Fusion Paper in Reno.

TO LEGISLATORS. Sam Kimble Issues Kansas Ex position Association's Address. Sam Kimble, of Manhattan, chair man of the legislative committee of the Kansas Exposition association, has sent out the following letter to each member of the house of representatives and senate of the next legislature: "It has heretofore been decided by a very large consultation and action on the part of lending citizens of the state that an exposition should be held at the state capital in the year 1904 which should properly celebrate the event, and at the same time inure to as large a benefit to our state as possible. As lo the propriety of this movement, I think there can be no question, and that it is the general Judgment that the deci sion to hold on exposition has been wisely made and that it is the desire of every Kansan to make the celebration a success. "Among other things that have been done, I have been selected as chairman of the committee on legislation and ordered to take such action as shall provide for necessary legislation and as sistance as the needs of the enterprise shall demand. To do this I act only In a representative capacity. 1 feel that it is the business of the people of the whole state and it is the glory and honor of the state that is to be set forth. "In entering upon my duties as chair man of this committee, I confidently ex pect the kindly, courteous and earnest consideration and assistance of every loyal citizen, and more especially of the members of the legislature, and I wish it to be distinctly understood at the out set that I only desire to co-operate with you in the consideration of this matter and to secure the legislation which on consultation and in your best judgment as a loyal citizen of the state will be necessary. "It is now understood that the na tional government will make an appro priation toward the carrying out of this exposition of at least 11,000,000, condi tioned only upon the proposition that the state itself will exhibit such an In terest in the success of the enterprise as will indicate to the national govern ment that we are in dead earnest. "The organization of Kansas was dif ferent from any other state in the union. It came at a time and under circum stances that made it the central object of our national history, hence the cele bration of the event is not only a state but a national affair. This fact justi fies us in the belief that the coming leg islature will seriously and properly con sider the matter "Now, just what legislation will bp best Is the question. It has been sug gested that the legislature should make an appropriation to be provided by a state tax of one-half of one mill, to be levied on all property in the state for the years 1901 and 1902. This tax, w hen computed it will be found would scarcely be noticed by any individual, but In the two years would realize to the support of the exposition about $300,000. "Now I present this subject to you as your own affair, with the desire that you consider it carefully, and I shall be pleased to hear from you at your earliest convenience with suggestions as to what, in your judgment, would be the best plan to secure the success of this public enterprise. "Please advisemewhetherin your Judg ment the suggestion above named would be feasible or not, and as to any other suggestions that may occur to you, as one having the best interests and glory of our state at heart, and as one being invested with the important duty of securing such legislation as will be proper, under your oath of office. "I do not wish to be looked upon In connection with this public matter as one 'lobbying' for some private enter prise, for I never have sustained that relationship toward any legislature, and never expect to, but at the demand of leading citizens of the Ftate I have felt it nothing more than my duty to accept the work involved in this mat ter, and I expect to do so conscien tiously. "Please let me hear from you as soon as you are able to consider this matter, with your suggestions upon the subject, and oblige." EXGLAN D WAKING U P. Parliament Evince Interest In Elec trical Project. New York. Dec. 10. A dispatch to the Tribune from London, says: The spring session of parliament promises to be remarkable to the atten tion given to electrical projects of all kinds. There will be in addition to numerous underground electric under takings for the metropolis, an unusually large assortment of light railway and electric tram bills. Provincial corpori tionn and district councils throughout the United Kingdom are sending up bill for legislative sanction and the London county council is also taking a hand in the game. The same councillors who have opposed heretofore the disfigure ment of I)ndon streets with overhead wires are now supporting a project for an electric tramway through Bucking ham Palace read, Victoria street and the embankment to Black Friars bridg", with a proviso that the conduit system shall be employed where it is Indispen sable. Legislative sanction will be ask ed for over ZH miles of surface electric road in thoroughfares and for a largj number or suburban lines in Camber well. Wandsworth and elsewhere. The London t'nited Tramways company is also actively pushing legislation for var ious surface electric lines In the western suburbs of Kingston, Hampton Court and many other districts.
