Huggins Has Arrived From the
. British Isles.
Whitney's Great Horse Trainer
Talks Turf.
THERE SIX SEASONS.
Tells What Racing Costs Across
the Waters.
Animals He Has Cared For Won
185,000.
New York, Dec 4. John Huggins, who
has trained "W. C. Whitney's racers in
England this year, is back in New York,
accompanied by Mrs. Ilusglns. Contrary
to expectation, none of Mr. "Whitney's
horses were on this vessel and there is
no certainty that they will be brought
back thin fall, although there is a report
that they may come on the next trip of
the Minnehaha, which is due here two
weeks hence. Kilmarnock, Elizabeth M.
and Elkhorn are the three which are ex
pected. John Mackey, who is general manager
for the breeder and turfman, J. B. Hug
gins, was also a passenger on the same
vessel with Mr. Huggins. A number of
thoroughbred English stallions and John
E. McDonald's well known American
horse, Rensselaer, were on the Minne
apolis. Muggins has for six consecutive seasons
trained in Kngland. having gone over in
189t to handle the late Pierre Lorillard s
racers. Iuring the last season Mr. Hug
gins has achieved the greatest honor any
trainer can aspire to, inasmuch as he
trained Voiodyovsky, the Derby winner,
for Mr. "Whitney, as well as Watershed,
winner of the Cambridgeshire Handicap,
and Game Chick, winner of the Den
hurst Plate, a great English 2-year-old
event. All told Mr. Huggins has trained
horses this year which have won more
than J1S5.U00. This includes the $20.0X1
French stake, called the Consent Munic
ipal, won by Kilmarnock, and first, sec
ond and third money in all races. Not in
four years has Mr. Huggins visited his
native land. He has a cotton plantation
in Texas, which he will visit in a few
Asked about Mr. Whitney's Intention in
respect to racing in England again next
vear, Mr. Huggins replied that he was
just then in telephonic communication
with Mr. Whitney, but that until he saw
Mr. Whitney nothing definite could be
said.
"I sold out everything I had, paid ort
my servants and made up my mind that
I was done with training in England for
the present," said Huggins, "but now I
don't know what my future is. Air. Whit
ney has a number of leased horses,
which he must continue to race. I do
no know whether or not Mr. Whitney
will send over Goldsmith and Nasturtium,
as you say the report is."
"Have von any opinion to express as to
the suspension of Lester Reiff?" Huggins
was asked. . .
"All I know is that the stewards acted,
on his case. I saw the race which caused
the suspension and I saw nothing wrong.
What the stewards may know, if any
thing, is more than I can say. But Reiff
will be here himself in a few days and
you can see him about the matter.
"Watershed, winner of the Cambridge
shire, can defeat Kilmarnock at a mile.
Kilmarnock is a. fair sort of a horse,
that's all. It is hard to say what the
best horse in England is," continued the
trainer. "There are about 4,0u0 horses
in training at Newmarket and each is
taxed 15 per annum.
"Racing in England is a far costlier
matter than racing in America," he add
ed. "You can not send a horse from
Newmarket to any part in England with
out its costing from J60 to Ji6 each. But
of course we have good men to help us.
That is, the assistant trainers are good,
but the stable lads try our patience.They
never want to do a stroke of work more
than is absolutely necessary."
"How dws the starting machine work
in England?"
"All right," was the unqualified answer.
"The barrier goes up and horses move
away and that s all there is to it. This,
of course, applies to the 2 and 3-year-olds.
Next year it will be used for all
ages. As far as I could see there could
be no complaint about the starting."
- Huggins is one of the two only Ameri
cans who have ever trained Derby win
ners. The other, Jacob Pincos, is now
in England.
Dunlop (property of Edward Corrigan),
b. h., by Ayrshire out of Fortuna, who
cost $50,060 as a yearling, was also on the
Minneapolis. He was sold at Newmarket
Kmi weeks ago for ilia.
BASEBALL MAGNATES.
Discuss the Transfar of Milwaukee
Team to St, Louis.
Chicago, Dec. 4. The principal ques
tion under consideration by managers
of the American baseball league attend
ing the annual meeting at the Grand
Pacific hotel Tuesday was the transfer
of the Milwaukee team to St. Louis. It
was rumored that the Milwaukee mag
nates were hard to deal with, and that
they had given out an ultimatum that
unless satisfactory terms were arranged
in two days no transfer would be made.
Matt Killilea said regarding the trans
fer: "Tfce owners of the Milwaukee
club are opposed to the transfer to St.
iouis, and the American league cannot
make the change without the consent of
the owners. The men at St. Louis were
all signed by the Milwaukee club. I
can't say what the outcome will be, but
there will be some decision soon."
Owing to the absence of a number of
members of the convention a quorum
was not secured until late, thereby de
laying action.
CONNIE MACK'S TEAM.
Has Hartzel and Flick Signed For the
Outfield.
Philadelphia. Dec. 4. Manager Mack
says he has about completed his team
for the season of 1902. He has signed
seventeen men, as follows: Catchers,

first base. Harry Davis; second base.
Lajoie; shortstop, Monte Cross; third

Fultz, Elmer Flick, Mclntyre and Sey
bold; utility man, Robinson.
The new players in the club are Pitch
er Duggleby, Outfielders Flick and
Hartzel, Shortstop Monte Cross and the
utility man, Robinson. The first four
of these are familiar to baseball fol
lowers. Robinson is a youngster who
covered third base for Kansas City last
season. Four or five National league
clubs and also several American league
clubs were after him, but Manager
Mack landed him, and now lias his
signature to a contract.
COEBEirS LUCKY LOCKET.
Contained the Face of His Intended
Wife.
New York. Dec. 4. It leaked out to
day that Young Corbett's talisman, in
his fight with McGovern Thanksgiving
day, was the miniature face of a young
and beautiful girl. Inclosed in a gold
locket and tucked away beneath the
folds of his fighting shirt.
When the first rush of excitement fol
lowing his winning the featherweight
honors had left him, he took the lit tit
locket from its hiding place and looked
long and longingly into it.
"Who is It?" asked one of his friends.
ghat's tier,' said tfia IttU fighter.
with a blush. "I am going home to
Denver right away, and she will be
there waiting for me. I suppose I might
as well confess. We have been engaged
for some time, but the date of our wed
ding has never beeh set. ' She was with
me in this flgnt, and I guess it was as
much for her as the championship that
I trained so hard. ....
"It will do me good tp get married,'
said Corbett. "I have always been given
to roaming, and I guess she will per
suade me to settle down. When I get
out to Denver I think I shall start in
the hotel business. Whatever I do she
will be with me. heart and soul."
Young Corbett denied a report pub
lished here that George Considine would
act as his manager in the future. He
was seen at the Metropole hotel today.
"Jack Corbett," he said, "who has
been my manager ever since I have
been fighting, will continue to attend to
my affairs."

M. S. U. - Tigers this year, has been
elected captain of the team for next
year. There was one other candidate
for captain besides Ellis, Charlie Wash
er being the second man. The vote was

unfortunate season of it this year, be
ing out of the game much of the time

New York, Dec. 4. Sandow, the
strong man, announced once for all that
he had no time to engage in a contest
with Rolandow or any other of the
strong men who have been seeking
matches with him. Rolandow had de
posited $2,500 as a guarantee of good
faith, so anxious was he to meet the
blonde Hercules from Eu ope. Sandow
says he is the victim of a steady stream
of challenges, some of which are even
from women and insane men. He de
clares he is too busy making money to
bother with challenges.
Sudhoff May Go With McAleer.
St. Louis, Dec 4. "Wee Willie" Sud
hoff will in all probability be the next
Cardinal to desert to the American
league. Jimmie McAleer is hot after
him for the new local club. Last year
Sudhoff drew $1,800 from Frank Robi
son. He has been offered $2,100 for the
coming season, but this McAleer has
raised an additional $300, and the
chances favor his desertion.

pitcher of the Boston National league
club, may play on Capt. Collins' Amer
ican league team in this city next sea
son. Director Billings has given up hope

KANSAS NEWS.
Trial of Young Moore at Win
field Is Now On.
Jury Secured Last Evening in
District Court.
IS ONLY 17 YEARS OLD.
Theorj Is a "Hold Up" With
Unintentional Murder.
Defendant Alone In Court, De
spondent and Sorrowful.
W infield, Dec. 4. The trial of Clyde
Moore, charged with the murder of C.
L. Wiltberger, commenced in the dis
trict court here Tuesday. Wiltberger
was killed on the ISth of last April,
while hauling wheat from his farm.
About two weeks afterward. Charles
Betts, Jr., and Clyde Moore, of Arkan
sas City, aged 13 and 17, respectively,
were arrested, charged with the murder.
The theory was that they attempted a
hold-up, and shot Wiltberger uninten
tionally. Betts was tried at the July
term of court and acquitted, but is now
in jail on the charge of perjury as a
result of his testimony at that trial.
About two months ago, "Shorty" Mc
Farland. a suspicious character of
Winfield, who had long been suspected
of guilty knowledge of the affair, was
arrested on the charge of murder and
will also have his trial this week. Betts
was acquitted last summer, largely
through the efforts of W. P. Hackney.
Now Hackney is assisting in the prose
cution, while G. H. Buckman, who pros
ecuted Betts, is conducting Moore's de
fense. The entire day was spent in the
selection of a Jury, which was secured
just before 6 o'clock. The trial will
probably last all week.
Clyde Moore, the defendant, seemed
to be altogether alone in court. No
relatives or friends sat with him and
he spoke very seldom even to his coun
sel. He was rather thinner than when
he was arrested and seems to have lost
much of the reckless, defiant air which
he sometimes assumed.
DOLD CAR SHOPS.
Will B.e Moved From Kansas City to
Wichita.
Wichita, Dec. 4. The Dold Packing
company has decided to locate its car
repair shops in Wichita and this will
be made the center for the large num
ber of cars used by the company in
handling the product of its factory. A
new building will have to be erected,
and this means an added number of
employes. At present the shops are lo
cated in Kansas City.
The location of the shops here means
an expenditure of several thousands of
dollars more in addition to the quarter
of a million which is now being invest
ed in the new plant. It is said to be
the intention of the Dolds to make the
Wichita house one of the largest in the
world. Now that their Buffalo house
has been destroyed, all the interests of
the company are centered here.
ACCEPTS JOINT LICENSE.
Wellington Council Refuses to Re
peal Liquor Ordinance.
Wellington, Kas., Dec. 4. A commit
tee of 100 citiaens appointed at the re
vival meeting waited on the city coun
cil with a petition asking for the repeal
of what is known as the "malt ordi
nance," under which joints have been
licensed by the payment of an occupa
tion tax of $600 a year. By a vote of 6
to 2 the council, which contains a ma
jority of members elected last spring on
a "wet" ticket, turned down the peti
tion and refused to repeal the ordi
nance. The temperance people are con
sidering the advisability of bringing
quo warranto proceedings to prevent
the city accepting this license money.
WELLINGTON REVIVAL.
Sum of $ 1,500 Raised For the Evan
gelist 463 Conversions.
Wellington, Kan., Dec. 4. The collec
tions at the tabernacle meetings for
Evangelist Williams, to remunerate
him for his work here, amounted in the
aggregate to $1,500. At Winfield, Evan
gelist Williams received $1,160, and at
Hiawatha he received $1,500.
The total number of conversions are

David R. White Shot Himself Fatally
at Manhattan.
Manhattan, Dec. 4. David R. White,
a Kansas pioneer, committed suicide
here Tuesday by shooting himself In

WHY DID HE DIEP
Neighbors of a Bourbon County
Farmer Desire to Know.
Fort Scott, Dec. 4. The neighbors of

near Mont Ida, a small town in this
county, were brought to this town for
playing at whitecapping and lodged in

victim was rescued by an officer.
Thete Farms Sell Well.

WONDERFUl HYOMEI
LUCKY MANUFACTURERS.
Physicians can now look forward to
the coming winter without any fear or
anxiety regarding the thousands of
weak-lunged and catarrh afflicted pat
ients under their care.
Facts furnished by the Bureau of Vi
tal Statistics in Washington have prov
en beyond the least shadow of doubt
that consumption is curable, that all re
spiratory diseases can be eradicated
completely and the' death rate reduced
wonderfully by the use of the new rem
edy, HyomeL
Hyomei is a dry air germicide found
in Australia, the first one ever known
which can be inhaled in the air we
breathe, the only possible method by
which the germs of these diseases can
be reached.
LUCKY MANUFACTURERS.
Never before in the whole history of
medicine has any remedy manufactured
for these diseases received recognition
by the United States Health Reports
or been successful in reducing the death
rate one iota, and it is expected that
all physicians from this time on will
use this one 'treatment and no other.
Of course this means a tremendous
demand for the new germicide and a
fortune to the manufacturers, a reward
which they richly deserve.
LACK OF SUPPLY FEARED.
Undoubtedly thousands of lives will
be saved during the coming winter
through the new treatment, but as this
germicide is only obtained in Australia
and at certain seasons of the year, it
is feared the manufacturers have not
a sufficient supply on hand to meet the
increased demand.
All of those who are afflicted wTith
coughs, catarrh or consumption should,
therefore, obtain an outfit of Hyomei
from their druggists at once, or send to
The R. T. Booth Co., Ithaca, N. Y.,

Goods Imported From Philippines
Will No Longer Pay Tariff!
Washington, Dec. 4. It is stated at
the war department that the decisions
of the United States supreme court in
the insular cases do not call for any
change in the existing tariff arrange
ments in the Philippines and that it
was not even deemed necessary to is
sue instructions to the civil governor
of the islands on the subject as a con
sequence of the decisions. Secretary
Root has had several conferences with
other officials in regard to the enact
ment of legislation necessary to meet
existing conditions, but he said today
as he had not received an official copy
of the court's decision he was unable
even to indicate what steps should be
taken. The secretary of the treasury
has issued to collectors of customs in
the United States a telegraphic order
directing them to admit free of duty
goods imported from the Philippine is
lands. Following is the order:
"Discontinue requirement entry and
collection of duty on merchandise
shown by manifest of Vessel to be ship
ped from Philippines. Allow free de
livery goods in bond. Detain cigars and
cigarettes until revenue stamps are
affixed under circulars 81 and 85 cur
rent year. Refunds will be made by
certified statement where protests duly
filed."
Red Necktie Betrayed Him.
Guthrie, O. T., Dec. 4. Elmer Pecore
was placed in the federal jail here to
day charged with rifling the mail be
tween the small towns near the Indian
Territory border. The officers suspect
ed Pecore and laid a trap for him by
placing a red neck tie and a pair of
beaded gloves in one of the mail sacks.
They apprehended him later wearing
these articles at a dance, where he had
taken his sweetheart. Pecore is a mix
ed breed.
Lexington Sale Closes.
Lexington, Ky., Dec. 4. The Wood
ward and Shanklln horse sales closed
here last evening. During the sale 250
horses were sold for $55,885, an average
of about $215 per head. The stallion
Jean Bereaud, by His Highness, the
property of William C. WThitney, and
one of a few horses which formed his
original stable, brought the top price
of the day and the sale, T. E. Dolan

BAD BLOOD,
BAD COMPLEXION.
The skin is the seat of an almost end
less variety of diseases. They are known
by various names, but are all due to the
same cause, acid and other poisons in
the blood that irritate and interfere "with
the proper action of the skin.
To have a smooth, soft skin, free from
all eruptions, the blood must be kept pure
and healthy. The many preparations of
arsenic and potash and the large number
of face powders and lotions generally
used in this class of diseases cover up
for a short time, but cannot remove per
manently the ugly blotches and the red,
disfiguring pimples.
Eternal vigilance is the price
of a beautiful complexion
when such remedies are relied on.
Mr. H. T. Shobe, 1704 Lucas Avenue, St. Louis,
Mo., says : " My daughter was afilicted for years
with a 'disfiguring eruption on her face, which
resisted all treatment. She was taken to two
celebrated health springs, but received no bene
fit. Many medicines were prescribed, but with
out result, until we decided to try S. S. S., and by
the time the first bottle was finished the eruption
began to disappear. A dozen bottles cured her
completely and left her skin perfectly smooth.
She is now seventeen years old, and not a sign of
the embarrassing disease has ever returned."
S. S. S. is a positive, unfailing cure for
the worst forms of skin troubles. It is
the greatest of all blood purifiers, and the
only one guaranteed purely vegetable. '

Topeka Commandery Knights
Templar Votes 10,000.
Their Share Toward the New
Masonic Temple.
MEETING WITH FAVOR.
Success of the Flan Is Now
Assured.
There Will Be No Mortgage on
the Building.
At the meeting of Topeka Commandery
No. 5 Knights Templar held last night
ft was unanimously voted that the com
mandery should take the 100 shares as
signed that body by the ways and
means committee of the Masonic tem
ple. The commandery received the report
of the committee, adopted it and im
mediately agreed to assume the re
sponsibility of raising $10,000 toward the
proposed $70,000 Masonic temple.
"We hope to begin work on the
Masonic temple by March 1 and to
have the building completed and ready
for occupancy by December 1, 1902,"
said Colonel T. W. Harrison this morn
ing. "The building will be four stories
in height and will be devoted exclus
ively to Masonic purposes. The temple
will be erected without a mortgage on
it and provision will be made that at
no time can an incumbrance be placed
upon it."
The report of the ways and means
committee has so far been presented to
the Chapter and the Commandery and
has been unanimously accepted by
both. The report will be submitted to
the Scottish Rite, Siloam lodge, To
peka lodge and Orient lodge for their
approval. The report of the committee
on ways and means is as follows:
To tho Masonic Board of Control:
Your committee of twelve, to be known
as the committee on ways and means, to
prepare a proposition for raising funds
for the erection of a Masonic Temple in
the city of Topeka, Kan., would respect
fully submit the following plan which, in
our Judgment, is practicable, and, if
adopted and carried into practice, would
result in the speedy erection of a Ma
sonic Temple which would forever be free
and clear of all indebtedness:
First We recommend that the sum of
$70,000 be raised for the erection of such
Masonic Temple.
Second In order to raise said sum of
$70,000 we recommend that each Masonic
body interested in said Temple, Issue
bonds in the sum of $100 each, to be
known as Masonic Temple bonds.
Third Each Masonic body so interested
shall issue only such number of said
bonds as will be its proportionate part of
said $70,000, based upon its present mem
bershin. Fourth A brother can hold only one
such bond in each of the Masonic bodies
in which he is a member in good stand
ing, which is entitled to issue such bonds.
Fifth The subscription to said bonds
may be paid all cash, or quarterly, or in
monthly payments of $10 a month, and
the payments shall begin March 1, 1902.
Sixth When a brother who has sub
scribed for a bond shall have paid the
sum of $100 in full, he shall be entitled
to one such bond, which shall mature
upon the death of such brother and the
bodv issuing said bond shall then imme
diately pay to the family of such deceased
member or to such beneficiary as he may
in his lifetime in writing direct the sum
of $100 without any question whatever.
Seventh As soon as a brother shall
have paid the sum of $100 in full he shall
be entitled to a bond and his name shall
be Inscribed upon a roll of honor on a
tablet, which shall be erected in the Tem
ple and on which, in alphabetical order,

that each of said bodies appoint ten of
its members best adapted to that work
to secure at once the necessary quota
of subscriptions for that body.
And from the assurances we have re
ceived and the pledges already tendered,
we feel warranted in saying that the 700
bonds will be subscribed without any de
lay, as soon as authority therefor is given
by the respective bodies, and we are as
sured that if the contracts could be let
and work commenced on the Temple by
March 1, 1912, that the building could be
completed and ready for occupancy by
December 1. 1902.
We therefore most urgently recommend
that immediate action be taken in the
several bodies interested upon this propo
sition and as soon as the same is ratified
by all the bodies that the taking of said
subscriptions be commenced and carried
promptly forward to completion to the
end that actual work may be commenced
upon the Temple by March 1, 1902.
All of which is respectfully and frater
nally submitted.
Dated at Topeka, Kan., Nov. 30, 1901.

ASK TOPEKA'S HELP.
Commercial Club Requested to Favor
Cable to Hawaii. '
At the next meeting of the Topeka
Commercial club the merchants of the
city will be asked to endorse a resolu
tion favoring the construction and op
eration by the national government of
a cable extending from California to
Hawaii and Manila, Japan and China.
John B. Corliss, member of congress
from Michigan, has given the question
a great deal of study and in address
ing the various commercial clubs of the
country says that it is "one of the most
important projects before our people."
"For years the cable interests have
been seeking to secuire from the gov
ernment a subsidy varying from six to
ten millions of dollars as an inducement
for the construction of this cable," says
Mr. Corliss. "Their measure carrying
a subsidy of six millions from the gov
ernment was defeated during the last
congress by a substitute bill offered by
myself, providing for government con
struction and operation.
"It was conclusively shown that the
revenues to be derived from the opera
tion of this cable would fully cover the
cost of operation at a rate of one
eighth less than the amount in tolls
heretofore paid by our government for
cable messages to Manila,
"The cable monopoly, having been de
feated in their attempt to secure a suc
cessful subsidy, is now seeking to ob
tain the right to this utility so as to
charge in tolls an amount which would
exceed the subsidy originally asked for.
"This will become a continuous bur
den upon the business interests of our
country and will check the wheels of
progress In the Pacific. The ownership
by our government of this great utility
will not in the least trespass upon the
vested rights of private interests.
"England has expanded her trade and
held supremacy of the commerce of the
seas through the influence of the own
ership, control and operation of cables
operated by the government at actual
cost. A British cable is now being con
structed from Vancouver down through
the Pacific to Australia, connecting
British colonies, and if the business
men of our country are to meet suc
cessfully the competition of trade in the
Pacific they must have quick communi
cation at the least possible expense.
"This can be accomplished . only
through government construction, own
ership and operation on the plan by
which we operate our postoffice depart
ment, to wit, al actual cost."
A MILD THRILL.
Effect of the President's Message in
Germany.
Berlin, Dec. 4. The message of Presi
dent Roosev'elt caused a mild thrill In
Germany. On the bourse, where It was
eagerly awaited, the message was re
ceived with uncommon interest and the
market was slightly stimulated upon
the posting of a bulletin containing
President Roosevelt's utterances about
trusts. The shares of the steamship
companies fell one or two points on ac
count of immigrant inspection para
graph and the proposed development
of the merchant marine service. Sev
eral field Journals aver that there is no
reason why the United States should
encourage ship building. They say that
if the United States becomes possessed
of a commercial fleet she will have to
built it, inasmuch as the attempts to
buy German lines of steamers have
been defeated.
President Roosevelt's words concern
ing the restriction of Immigration con
tain an unpleasant suggestion in the
present time of depression,- when as the
Berliner Volks Zeitung says the hard
times make an overflow of the laboring
population of Europe necessary. The
free trade and Liberal newspapers wel
come the reciprocity recommendations,
but regret that President Roosevelt did
not recommend specific tariff reduction.
The first impression of the president's
message in German official circles Is
that the repression of anarchistis by
international agreement is much mora
likely to be carried through upon the
initiative of the United States than by
that of any other power. An anti
anarchist preposition from Germany
along the same lines as that of Presi
dent Roosevelt is probably already on
its way to the state department at
Washington.
The "Vossische Zeitung says the presi
dent's message indicates that the feet
of the United States are well In the im
perialistic path and that ventures
abroad seem to agree with them.
The National Zeitung alludes to the
strong and confident tone used by Pres
ident Roosevelt and to his large pur
poses. Taking the message altogether, it has
been favorably received, both popularly
and officially. The references it con
tains to the late Empress Frederick
are especially appreciated.
