Kentucky Derby the Next Big
liaciDsr Event.
Will be Run Monday on Famous
Churchill Downs.
Indications Point to Garry Her

Schorr's Entries Make Trouble
For Pittsburg Colt.
Chicago, April 24. The Inter-Ocean
publishes the following from a Kentucky
correspondent :
The Kentucky Derby, to be run at
Churchill downs Monday. April 29, is, as
usual, the chief topic these days In and
about Louisville. In IS'.'o the race was in
augurated, when Aristides had the honor
of winning the initial event. Last year
Lieutenant Gibson won the race for C.
31. Smith, of Chicago. The prospects are
thai even a larger crowd than ordinarily
will witness this historic blue ribbon
event of the west, and watch Che great
Cuirv Hermann pass the wire in the van.
The priz" is this year worth some JC.OoJ
to the winner.
Not only is this event surrounded by
more sentiment than any other race in
tne west, barring, perhaps, the American
IJerby. but it is really the first race of
tne eituii which, is entitled to the name
c-f Derhv, us it is run over one and a
half miles of ground, which is the proper
distance for this race. There have ai-
tKiuf been three so-called Derbies de-
cM-d namelv, the California, Crescent
City, ami .Memphis but all of these races
are contested over a shorter course than
that over which a Derby should be run.
Kentuckv is noted for three things its
thoroughbreds, beauuful women, ana
-whisk v n 1 1 of which develoo into the
finest of their class, and there is no other
part of the country where enthusiasm
lor sport reigns to such a pitch as in the
biuetrrass region, as is shown by the
mayor of Louisville declaring Derby tor
a holiday, and there will be nothing doing
at iHiisvnie city nan. as tne municipal
officials will attend the Derby in a body,
as will also the judges and all the sLate
Garry Hermann is the public favorite,
end justly so. J. J. Markleiu was his
cirisrlnal owner, and the son of imp.
Ksher and 8ilk Oown won his first race
as a 2-year-old April ll.jyuO. at Memphis,
when he beat Sad Sam, Dirk Burgess,
and Mattie lJain. Prior to that race he
had only started once, when he was
beaten by Joe Prey in the Gaston hotel
stakes. His next victory was April l'i. at
jSb-mphis, when he beat Wild Pirate, Wall,
Ampere, and others. After this Miss
Hennett. C. C. Bennett's living rtlly, took
his number, but in doing so had to make
a new track record for live furlongs
namely, which holds good to this
dd y.
The first peep Chicago race-goers had
of this colt was on the opening day at
lakeside. May 10, when Garry got home
a- nose in front of the lightly weighted
Kob.-rt Waddell. who was in receipt of 11
pounds. He won again May li This
time he had an easy task. Four started,
and he was the last to get away, where
be remained until given his head in the
stretch, when he galloped over his field,
which Included Sig Levy, Sad Sam, and
Yi iiliant Ack. He was there and then
fctamned. bv those who should know, as
a great colt.
Hermann won his first stake race May
16. nani'-iy. the Hammond stanes of S1.5tX,
when he literally romped home from
Money Musk and three others.
The colt was successful at the next two
ventures at Lakeside, but he met more
than his match in Silverdale at Haw
thorne. May an. After that he put six
straight victories over the plate, includ
ing the Juvenile stakes at Hawthorne and
the Youngster stakes at Harlem.
C. H. Smith purchased the colt from
J. J. Marklein just prior to the Juvenile
stakos. It was in this race that he first
carried the colors of 'Race Horse" Char
ley, and he gained a grand victory.
It was at Washington park that Garrv
met his W aterloo. Alurd Seheok, the dark
brown colt by Hindoo-Cherry Blossom,
belonging to the Tennessee brewer, at an
advantage of seven pounds in the weight,
won the lOnwood stakes easily bv six
lengths. After this Garry started twice
more at Washington park and won both
races handily. From Chicago Garrv
Hermann was taken to Saratoga, where
he wms east-J up a bit. though he ran in
tiie Fl" ischmann stakes and was beaten.
From the famous Spa Hermann went to
Moms park. There he distinguished
himself October hi by picking up 124
pounds In an all-aged race called the
high-weicht handicap, distance six fur
longs, and winning. In this race he beat
Lady Schorr. His best performance was
his victory in the Champagne stakes,
when he ran seven furlongs in 1:27 2-5,
currying 117 pounds. In this race he beat
Smile. Water Color. Conrov. Advocate.
Criterion, and others. He wound up the
season by running the Withers mile in
J :4,. with 123 pounds up. finishing in front
of Rolling Boer, Joe Frey, and Dr. Bar
ton. btil! there may be a thorn in the side
of Garry yet, in the shape of Alard
iSeheck. It is true he has not vet a race
this year, but still George Walker, his
trainer, is a shrewd man, and It is well
Known that Alard is a loafer in his work.
The last race of the son of Hindoo must
iut be looked upon too Sightly, as his con
queror, Sevoy, is very fast, and Scheck
Mas askt to give the gelding 11 pounds.
The Schorrs also have Silverdale and Jos
3-ey eligible for the Xvrbv. and should
t.he lutt.r have recovered from his trip
neros.s the Kockies it may be that he, too,
""in make it interesting for the great
Carry Hermann.
Laurence Ball Team Wia by Score
of 6 to 2.
Lawrence, Kan., April 24. The Mis
souri university baseball team dropped
the contest to the Jayhawkers by a
ecore of 6 to 2. The Tigers played a
considerably better game than they
fcavs been putting up heretofore on their
trip, but their errors and wild throws
came at critical moments, as in the
fourth inning, when Owsley's and
i asher's poor throwing allowed three
jayhawkers to cross the plate, and a
men single scored a fourth. The score
1 ' t wtn the honors over Hall in the
pitching. Only five safe hits were
1 'tg, 1 f-om his delivery, against six
iroru Hall s. and the Missourian struck
out lour men to Hall's two. Voeth gave
the only base on balls during- the game.
Tlw pitching on both sides was strictly
firs-t class. Hall fielded his) position the
letter. Schrant outclassed Washer be
hand the bat. His throwing- to second
was food while the ball never passed
him at critical times and caught some
difficult foul tlies. Washer threw high
End wild to second and missed Owsley's
thrown from second, letting in a score.
Prey and Coe each did well at first,
although the former allowed a. hot
grounder to roll between his feet. JIc
Campbell had Owsley bested at second.
He was fast and sure, while the latter
l-t the sphere pass him several times.
He seemed to lose interest in the game.
Yant at short played the whole infield
for the Tigers. His work was almost
liiifnomenal. and he saved the team
from a worse defeat than It suffered.
I'ciorman was also on hia mettle, plav
lr a very clean game. Broadhead at
third was treated to some very warm
grounders and allcmed two to got away
in the forepart ef the tame, but braced
tip toward the last. White was in great
fTia at third. Tucker played left field
l.ke a veteran. Burnett made come nice
c-atches and Curry redeemed his error
with a pretty running catch. The Mis
souri gardens were not so well kept, but
iij.tiller made a great catch of a hard
one near the fence. - .
Neither team showed marked ability
with the stick. Tucker hit a clean dou
ble for K. I7, and White's single was a
beauty, but Voeth allowed few safe ones
placed off his delivery. Kieffer, Coe,
Yant and McCaslin did very good stick
work for the Tigers, but a majority of
the latter were easy at the bat.
A good crowd witnessed the game,
which was the best seen here this sea

Phladelphia 5; Boston 3.
Philadelphia. April 24. T'p to the eighth
inning Tuesdav's game between Boston
and Philadelphia looked like a victory for
tile visitors, but a timely triple by Dele
hanty. with three men on bases, brought
in the winning run for the locals. Tha
game was well plaved by both clubs, and
but for two bad fumbles by Demontre
ville, would have been perfect. Both Orth
and Willis were in good form, but the
eighth proved an unfortunate inning for
the latter. Threatening weather resulted
in a small attendance. Score:

Philadelphia, April 24. "Lefty" Dav
is, the ex-Minneapolis player, who sign

tried today to return to Mack the mon
ey that had been advanced him. Mack
spurned it, and it remains to be seen
whether Davis will be in or out. Mack
announced that rain checks given at his
park would be good until used. It is the
general rule in the National League that
they are void after the following day.

Nashville Races.
Nashville, Tenn.. April 24. Three favor
ites and a well backed second choice were
among the winners over a track that was
slow, but not bad. Delays at the post
tried the crowd's patience, and when the
last race was started it was almost too
dark to distinguish the jockevs' colors.
Echodale. in the first race, threw his
rider. May. and ran away two miles. He
had enough left to win from Jim Clark
afterwards, but it was a close call. Jor

New York. April 24. Golden Cottage,

over Tamah Nawis in the betting, won
the Canarsie stakes at Aqueduct In 56 4-5

Young Man Who Fled From New
fork Astonishes Creditors.
A New York dispatch to the St. Louis
Post-Dispatch says that Lewis G.
Tewkesbury, the young broker who ab
sconded from New York leaving many
unpaid bills is now prepared to pay his
debts. Mr. Tewkesbury has many rela
tives in Topeka. Following is the dis
To the great gratification of his many
creditors Lewis G. Tewkesbury, the for
mer banker and broker, has made a for
mal announcement that he will pay 100
cents on the dollar on all claims against
Tewkesbury, who disappeared from
New York in June last, leaving debts
aggregating toOO.000, has been long
sought by his creditors. The first clew
obtained was on December 10, 1900,
wherein it was stated that Tewkesbury
was living in affluence in the City of
Mexico as Louis Thorne, and that he
had entered into contracts with the
Mexican government that bade fair to
make him a millionaire many times
This naturally aroused the interest of
Mr. Tewkesbury s creditors in New
York, and one of them. W. Browning
Johnson, whose claim amounted to $12,
472, placed the matter in the hands of
his attorney, B. Berson Oppenheim,
lawyer at No. 265 Broadway, who has
now been made the medium of Mr.
Tewkesbury to liquidate all the claims
against him.
Mr. Oppenheim. who has just returned
from a visit to the City of Mexico, said
"I at once communicated with Mr.
Tewkesbury, or Louis Thorne, and.
much to my astonishment, received a
courteous note from the erstwhile mil
lionaire inviting me to the City of Hex
ico for the purpose of adjusting the
claim of Mr. Johnson.
"I went down there fully prepared to
settle our claim of $12,000 odd for $5,000.
and would have esteemed myself lucky
to get that. To my astonishment Mr.
Tewkesbury said to me: 'I will settle
your claim in full.'
"Talk about your gorgeous offices!
There is nothing to compare in New
York, Boston or Philadelphia with the
magnificence of Tewkesbury's estab
lishment in the City of Mexico. It was
not until the story of the Post-Dispatch
was telegraphed to Mexico that any
trouble arose. Tewkesbury was about
to enter into some valuable contracts
with theMexican government, but the
story killed these, and he had more
trouble, with the result that the gov
ernment canceled its contracts, and
Tewkesbury, known there as Thorne,
thought it advisable to emigrate to a
city in Central America.
"There he has rehabilitated himself,
and, to my astonishment, he not only in
sisted upon paying my client's claim,
but suggested that I should, upon my
return to New York, negotiate with his
various creditors and settle their claims
against him in full.
"I have returned in order to fulfil his
behests. Mr. Tewkesbury has made bo
much money that he is in a position to
pay everybody."
"Do you suppose that he will ever
return to New York?" asked the re
porter. "Well," was the reply. "I have some
doubt about that. He is making so
much money down there that I doubt
if he has any inclination to return
Tewkesbury Is a New Englander and
came to New York in 1SS0. He was a
bold speculator in Wall street and when
the slump of 1890 came about he was
credited with making more than $1,000.
000. He built a superb residence in
Seventy-second street and owned many
valuable trotters, including Robert J.
and John R. Gentry.
Last June Tewkesbury, who had the
reputation of being able to lose $100,000
on a turn in "the street" with a smile
upon his face, disappeared in the latter
part of June, with .the result that Ber
son Oppenheim, representing W. Brown
ing Johnson, obtained an attachment
against his property in this state on a
claim of $12,472.

After the Ceremonies There
Was a Fine Banquet.
Building Will Be One of the
Best in the State.
Clay Center.April 24. Clay county laid
the corner stone to its handsome new
J40.COO stone court house here. The
weather was perfect and the people
poured out in great numbers to partici
pate in the ceremonies. In fact, it seem
ed as though all the inhabitants of this
splendid agricultural county took a day
off and came into town and dropped the
traces for the event.
Three years ago the people of this
county decided that it was time to build
a court house on the public square ded
icated to the town for that purpose by
A. F. Dexter years and years ago when
he laid out the original townsite. They
didn't like the idea of issuing bonds for
that purpose. They wanted to raise the
money as they went along, so that there
would be no debt hanging over the peo
ple after the building was completed. So
they went to the legislature of '98 and
got a special act passed authorizing the
county to levy a tax for the purpose of
building a court house. A three mill
levy has been collected ever since that
time and will be collected this year.
This will net enough money to build and
equip one of the finest court houses in
Kansas, and that is just what Clay
county is going to have.
The contract for the erection of the
building was let last fall to Ziegler
Dalton, of Junction City. The plana of
J. C. Holland, the Topeka architect, were
adopted. v oik was started late in the
fall and had to be suspended after the
foundation was completed on account of
the weather. A big force of men was on
hand, however, and as soon as the cor
nerstone was laid they began work. They
will keep at it al! summer. The build
ing will be completed and ready for oc
cupancy by November 1.
As stated, everybody in the county
took a day oft and celebrated. In the
afternoon there was a grand street pa
rade participated in by the drum corps.
the old veterans, the school children of
the county, the Masonic bodies, the Odd
Fellows, Knights of Pythias, Modern
Woodmen, A. O. U. W., the National
Aid Association arid other secret socie
ties, citizens in carriages and on foot
There were three bands, the Coronado,
the Idana and the Oak Hill, in the pro
cession. Captain W. H. Fletcher was
marshal of the day. After the parade
was over the crowd assembled at the
square, where the cornerstone laying
ceremonies were held under the auspices
of the Masonic order. This programme
wa carried out:
Music, Coronado band; song, "Battle

The new court house, when comple
ted, will be one of the finest in the state.
It is being built of Manhattan lima
stone. It is of the Romanesque style
and is being built on the three entrance
plan. The main entrance will be from
the west side. Bach entrance has a large
archway, granite shafts and carved cap
itals, une tnree cornerstones run into a
central corridor and leading from this
are two huge stairways to the second
floor. On the first floor will be the of
fices of the probate judge, the register
of deeds, county clerk, county commis
sioners and county treasurer. Each of
fice is supplied with a fire proof vault.
On the second floor is the court room,
judges' chambers, jury rooms, consulta
tion rooms and offices of the district
clerk, sheriff, county superintendent and
county attorney. The court room is 3S
by 61 feet in dimensions and 22 feet
high. A new feature is an alcove for
the judge's desk. This adds to the ac-
coustics and economizes in space. The
room is covered with a cove ceiling.
X he basement is a high story above
grade line. It will be useJ for the coun
ty surveyor's office, the Janitors' livinar
quarters and the heating and ventilation
The central dome is 115 feet in height.
It is carried from the basement on !
stone piers, ornamented. In the tower
will be an illuminated clock with four
dials. Each dial will be six feet and
eight inches in diameter. The face will
be made of ground glass and will be
lighted by electricity. The clock itself
will cost $1,000, and will be paid for out
of a private fund raised by the citizens
of the county. ,
One of the chief features of the build
ing will be the absence of perishable
material, such as sheet metal and the
like. The exterior will be all stone and
slate. The floors will be of tile. The
inside finish will be of cypress, but there
wm re so little of it that the court
house will be almost firenroof. It Is be
ing built on the slow burning plan. The
building win be heated bv steam and
lighted by electricity. It will be fitted
up with the latest plumbing system and
will have every possible convenience.
State Normal Students Deplore Fro
. feasor's Departure.
Emporia, April 24. The senior class
of the Kansas State normal school has
put itself on record as not approving
the action of the board of regents in
discharging Dr. Oscar Chrisman because
of his advanced theories regarding the
sexes and their capabilities for love, and
his fearlessness in giving utterance to
hi3 ideas. In order to show their regard
for the professor and his theories the
class called in a body at his residence
and presented him with a set of solid
silver spoons engraved with his initial
"C." They also presented him with a
copy of the following resolutions adopt
ed by the class:
"We, the members of the class of 1901,
feel that in the removal of Dr. Chrisman
from the faculty of the Kansas State
normal school we have lost a personal
friend and worthy instructor. We take
this opportunity to express our regret.
"We feel that the school has lost one
In whose higher classes we have found
especial opportunity for that self
searching, for that self-expression and
for that self direction In study tha is an
essential element in the education of a
man or of a woman.
"It is evident that Dr. Chrisman states
a strong principle in social science when
he says that education must deal more
with preparation for home life, and that
he has rendered a great service to the
state and to the country, in as-much as
he has given to teachers a greater sym
pathy for and a keener insight into the
life of the child.
"We appreciate his liberal ideas and
teaching, his sincerity and fearlessness
and extend to him our heartiest wishes
for success in his work, in whatever field
he may labor.
"Be it resolved: That this expression
of the class be presented to Dr. Chris
man, a copy be placed on the record of
the class and that copies be furnished
the press for publication."

Wind Blew 10,304 Milea With Maxi
mum of 60 Milea an Hour.
The following is the climate and crop
service of the weather bureau report for
Kansas for March:
March opened with a warm wave,
which waa immediately succeeded by a
cold one, and the unusual feature of the
maximum and minimum temperatures
for the month occurring within 4 days
time was experienced over the larger
part of the state, the minimum tempera
tures in the extreme northwestern coun
ties occurring the last day of the month.
Another warm wave passing over the
state the middle of the month carried
the temperature up to SO degrees again.
The mean temperature for the current
month was the same as the mean for
March, 1900, but the extremes were not
so great. The mean temperature tor
the month is above normal at all sta
tions, except in the extreme western
counties; the mean for the state, 42.5 de
grees, being 0.9 degrees above normal.
The month waa "windy," the total
movement of wind averaging 10,304
miles for the state; the maximum hour
ly velocities being 36 miles at Concordia,
40 at Topeka and Kansas City, 43 at
Wichita, 52 at Dodge City, and 60 at the
Kansas university, on Mount Oread, at
The precipitation for the month, 1.71
inches, was 0.32 of an inch above nor
mal, and was greatest in the extreme
eastern counties south of the Kaw, and
in the far western counties from Deca
tur south to Haskell. In the extreme
western counties it amounted to less
than an inch; also, in Ness and south
eastward to and through Sumner, while
in Labette. Crawford and Cherokee it
exceeded four inches. The precipitation
was below normal in Greeley.in the cen
tral and central-southern counties, in
Ottawa, Cloud, Coffey, Woodson, Green
wood, and in Shawnee, Jackson and
Brown, but over the rest of the state
there was an excess In the western
counties much of the precipitation was
in the form of snow, -which was unus
ually heavy in the northern portion,
where stock suffered severely.
Wheat continued in good condition
in the central and eastern counties and
sprouted in the extreme western. Some
oats were sown in nearly all parts of the
state, and in the southern part the oat
sowing was nearly completed. A little
plowing has been accomplished In
some of the southern counties, and in
Chautauqua some corn has been plant
ed. Apricots blossomed in the south the
latter part of the month, and peaches
are nearly ready to bloom. Fruit buds
are unhurt. Tame grass is starting.
