TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, WEDNESD AY EVENING. SEPTEMBER 3., 1902.
SPORTIMWS. Outfielder Green Doing Good Work With the Stick. Leads the White Stockings in the Batting Department. JONES AND STRANG UP. Clark Griffith Makes a Most Re markable Record. Has Not Made a Misplay in Twenty-two Games. Chicago, Sept. 3. The News says D. Green easily leads the White Stockings In the race with the stick up to tho pres ent time and is still the only member of the team above the 30 mark. Fielder Jones is pushing that mark pretty close, however, and is now only one point be low it. Sammy Strang, too, has increased his average of late and is near the top. Griffith is not up to his usuaKform this season with the willow, for he usually is above 300. Callahan has fallen behind al so. Eddie McFarland and Tom Daly have advanced rapidly of late and may yet finish the season with averages some where near the figures given them in the National league. Garvin ended his record at the end of the list. Jones has been at bat the greatest num ber of times, 431, and also in the base hits, 129 while Strang leads in number of runs scored, eighty-two. The White Stockings are strong on stolen bases and Mertes leads the league with a totai of thirty-eight. Isbell has thirty-two. Green twenty-nine, Janes and Davis twenty eight each and Strang twenty-seven. Green has sacrificed oftener than any other champion, though Isbell Is only one behind him. Griffith is the only White Stocking who has not made an error up to the present time this season. In the twenty-two games he has played he has not made a single misplay a truly remarkable record. Fielder Jones who has been in every game played by the champions this season, 109, Is close to him, though Isbell with a total of 1,215 chances in 108 games and only thirteen errors. Is second in the fielding list. Callahan has played fifteen games in the out field, most of them in the right garden, and is therefore given an average as an outfielder as well as a pitcher. Strang is at the foot of the column in fielding chances accepted among the re regular players, while Wiley Piatt is the last in the list of the team. Among the men regularly in the game Jones has made the fewest misplays, wnue estrang has the greatest number chalked up against him a total number of 48. Sullivan is still ahead of Eddie McFar land in the record as a backstop, though Comiskey's new catcher is slowly creeping up on the former Boston player, as the latter is compelled to absent himself from the game owing to an injury to his thumb. Besides leading the White Stockings in batting. Danny Green is also at the head of the list as an extra basehitter and has made a total of 153 bases. His lead is very slight, however, for Fielder Jones Is close on his heels with 152 bases. Garvin and Patterson are the only members of the team that have not made an extra base hit. DRAKE ISSUES A CHALLENGE Offers to Match Salable Against Any ' Horse in Futurity. New York, Sept. 3. As the result of a controversy among some well-known turfmen gathered at the Holland house last evening, regarding the merits of the Futurity winner, Savable's owner announced his willingness to engage in a special matc h race with any individ ual member of the Keene entry or any other of the starters. Any owner who feels that it was not truly ran, may now secure a second and decisive en gagement, with the winner very readily. Captain Sara Brown, the Pittsburg oil man and owner of Blue Ribbon, ven tured the opinion that Irish Lad was the best in the Futurity field at the weights. Charley Gates demurred. An interminable dispute appeared im minent when Owner Drake's sweeping chaUenge killed all argument. Mr. Drake went Btill further by declaring that if there was to be "several East ern colts which yet would make Sava ble shape up like the proverbial 30 cents before the season's close," they would have plenty of opportunity to show it. He intended starting Savable. he said, whenever possible, after a due rest from his Futurity effort, feeling confident of his colt's ability to beat anything in the East at even weights. ADVANCE GUARD IS KINO. Ed Corrigan Voices His Opinion of the Son of Imp. Great Tom. Chicago, Sept. 3. Ed Corrigan regards the Kentucky and Tennessee thorough bred the highest type of horse in the world. He considers their quality hardly up to the best English grade, but in stamina and general soundness they far surpass the brilliant stars raised on the other side of the Atlantic. "Why," said he, "there Is not a horse in all England that in two or three miles .Advance Guard could not beat easily and give him fifteen or twenty pounds. Wil liam III, not excepted. Nor has there bean in England for fifty years a horse that has trained on like the son of Imp. Great Tom. Many English cracks in their whole turf career have not run as many races as he has in a single season. Inviailjto nti?grXl Enemy to Health marshes of the cotmtry, or the filthy sewers and drain pipes of the cities and towns, its effect tipon the human system is the same. These atmospheric poisons are breathed into the lungs and taken up by the blood, and the foundation of some long, debilitating illness is laid. Chills and fever, chronic dyspepsia, torpid and enlarged liver, kidney troubles, jaundice and biliousness are frequently due to that invisible foe, Malaria. Noxious gases and unhealthy matter collect in the system because the liver and kidneys fail to act, and are poured into the blood current until it becomes so polluted and sluggish that the poisons literally break through the skin, and carbuncles, boils, abscesses, ulcers and various eruptions sl an indolent character appear, depleting the system, and threatening life itself. The germs and poisons that so oppress and weaken the body and destroy the life-giying properties of the blood, rendering it thin and watery, must be overcome and carried out of the system before the patient can hope to get rid of Malaria and its effects.

He stands undisputed champion of Amer ica over a distance of ground." " Corrigan proposes to attempt to repro duce the Advance Guard type of horse by breeding his English stallion to native mares, reversing the ' method pursued at Castleton stud of J. R. & F. P. 'Keene. He proposes to limit his new breeding plant so the production will never over reach the 'demand of his racing stable. He never expects to become a market breeder, and in the future he will breed only horses to carry his green and white sash. "I am getting to old," he said, "to at tempt to go into the breeding business in competition with the public breeders of to day. I fancy myself outclassed, but I do claim to know the racing game, and will stick to the old tools o pull me through financial storms the rest of my days, I may never have another Modesty or Freeland, but I guess I will be able as long as I last 'to win a selling race once in a while or a jumping contest or two. I still have a fondness for hurdle and steeplechase racing. It tests the game ness and endurance of a horse and no real bad performer has ever developed into a racing star between the flags." Amelia Wins at Hartford. Hartford, Conn., Sept. 3. Anzella trotted two slow heats in the Charter Oak $10,000 event and then went in and won in three straight heats. The race was marred by a bad accident in the last heat, when Idolita and Hawthorne came together, both horses going down. The accident happened at the three quarter pole and the majority of the 5,000 spectators left the stands, crossing the infield to the scene of the accident. The horses and drivers were found to be uninjured. In the first heat Amelia broke at the start and again in the back stretch. Metallas gave Idolita a hard drive, and Ozanam broke badly. In the second heat. Metallas led to the back stretch, but Idolita took the heat. The third heat was very easy for Anzella, with Ozanam coming fast and getting second place. The fourth heatooked good for Hawthorne, but he broke at the wire, and, though Anzella had broken twice, she came in a winner. The fifth heat was an easy win for the favorite. The pool sellers evidently feared Di rect Hal's bursts of speed, and no pools were sold on the favorite for the 2:30 pace. He won in straight heats, and though the time he made was fast, he could have done better. Greenline sold for second place at even money. To win the- third heat and race. Direct Hal had to pace the last quarter in better time than 0:30. Greenline, who led at the three-quarter pole, did the quarter in 0:30 1-4, and Direct Hal was two lengths behind Greenline when time was snapped at the stretch mark. Tennis at Kansas City. Kansas City, Sept. 3. Dr. H. S. "Vanghn and Carter Wilder, of Kansas City, won the championship in doubles in the Djk ington tournament, after a five-set fight, from A. Hogg and W. E. Higgins, of Lawrence. There was brilliant tennis on the part of both teams, but the locals won out through their steadiness and careful playing. The scores were 4-6, 6-2, 8-6, 1-6. 6-2. The first match of the day was con solation singles between Fietshans and Sharrard. Sharrard was not up to his usual form, whereas Feitshans' work was, anything, superior, to that of Mon day, Feitshans won, 6-4, 7-5. The next match was between Dr. Lyons and C. H. Williams. Lyons was in poor playing form at first, gaining the first set only by hard work; score, 8-6; and losing the second, 2-6. He then braced up and took the last sot handily, score 6-4. In the afternoon the match pfaying opened with semi-final singles consola tion between Bert Williams and Feit shans. This match was closely contest ed every point and was finally won by Feitshans, who repeatedly lobbed' to the service line, and backed it up with smash ing drives. Both men played brilliantly at times, but Feitshans succeeded in win ning out, 6-4, 6-3. Ducky Holmes Deserts. Detroit, Mich., Sept. 3. Ducky Holmes, right fielder for the Detroit club, and one of the veteran members of the team, has played his last game as a Tiger. He went away without waiting to secure his release from De troit, and will join the Des Moines team of the Western league, for which he will play the outfield. Holmes fielded fine here this season until his knee went lame, but has been shy with the stick all season long. Des Moines is Holmes' home town, his father being a wealthy farmer with a place about five miles out of the city. Holmes, in quitting the American league, denies himself the California trip with the All-Ameri-cans. Salina Races Open. Salina Kas., Spet. 3. The Central Salina, Kas., Sept. 3.

An Angry Mob of Hundreds Visit the Police Station. POLICE OUTWIT THEM. Two Sen Suspected of Murder of Policeman Spirited Away. Jails Searched Thoroughly by Appointed Committee. Kansas City. Kan.. Sept. 3. A crowd of from 200 to 300 determined men. bent on lynching, stood in front of the oitv hall last night and demanded the sur render by the police of "Toots" Rambo and "Ike" Johnson. The two prisoners were arrested by the police yesterday on suspicion of be ing the men who killed Patrolman W. J. Morris ot the police force, and dan gerously wounded S. A. Minsker, a watchman while trying to rob the safe at Metropolitan car barn in Armour dale at 3:30 o'clock yesterday morning. The details of the crime as printed aroused the people of the citv to such indignation as has never been seen be fore. At night, when the full details of the tragedy were known to almost ev ery man. woman and child in the city, together with the fact that the wound ed man in St. Margaret's hospital had identified Rambo and Johnson, there was talk of lynchinsr on many street corners where men congregate. At the police headquarters in the city hall the accused were imprisoned in iron cells in the basement. Chief Zlm mer and the officers on duty evidently did not realize the gravity of the situ ation until after fi o'clock when tele phone messages were sent in from var ious parts, of the city telling of the state of public feeling. The city coun cil was assembling upstairs and the usual crowd of peoole who attend the meetings was also on hand. There was nothing to betoken anything unusual until about 7:30 o'clock when some one telephoned that one crowd was march ing up from Armourdale and another crowd was marching in from the north west part of the city. Chief Zimmer. -who had crone to his home in West Armourdale, was quickly notified. ' He drove to the city hall in great haste, .and while the crowd was assembling . Rambo and Johnson were taken out of the Jail through the police court room adjoining and taken away without the crowd knowing it. Toward 9 o'clock the crowd had grown to such proportions that it blocked the entire street, but there was no demonstration of any kind or loud, boisterous talk such as one might expect from a mob. The crowd was composed of orderly, well appearing men, many of them well dressed, but they were determined men.. Finally a tall man. wearing a gray suit of clothes and a mass of red hair, addressed the men. "Well, boys, let's see If they are here." "The men have been taken away and are not here," said John A. Hale, the lawyer employed by the Metropolitan company to help bring the murderers to justice. : "Well, you may be speaking the truth, but we prefer to see for ourselves," re plied the spokesman. So, suitins his . actions to his words, the man with red hair and gray clothes took a committee of four or five men and entered the station. Sergeant Tar pley was at the desk. "tVe want to see if these murderers are here," the spokesman said. "Well, gentlemen, they are not here," the sergeant answered. "Sergeant, we want to make sure ot it and we demand the keys," put in a thick-set man. who stepped up to the dsn. Srgeant Tarpley took a: bunch of keys out of a drawer and turning to the leader, said: "Follow me." The committee passed down the stair way, and as the doors of the jail swung open they marched inside. There were only two persons in the Jail, both young men held for minor offenses. "We are satisfied and we thank you An tEloefrie Sofi Froo Bend Your Application At Onoe To Tne rbysician Institute. - They Will Send Yon Absolutely Free On of Their lOO Onage Supreme Electric Belts, the Belt W hicm Bias Made so Many Wonder ful Cares Ton Needn't Send Even s Postage Stamp, J ast Your Kama and Address. Seven years ago the State of Illinois granted to toe Physicians' Institute of Chicago a charter. There was need of something above the ordi nary method of treatment for chronic diseases, something more than any one specialist or any Dumber of specialists acting independently could do, so the State Itself, under the powers granted it by its general laws, gave the power to the Physicians' Institute to furnish to the sick such help as would make them well and strong. Ever since its establishment this Institute has endeavored in every possible way to carry out the original purposes of its establishment under the beneflclent laws of the State. Three years ago, the Physicians' Institute, realizing the value of electricity in the treatment ot certain phases of disease, created under the superintendence of Its staff of specialists an electric belt, and tills belt has been proved to be of great value as a curative agent. From time to time it has been Improved until It reached that stage of perfection which warranted its present name of "Supreme." This belt is the mosteffective of an agents in the cure of rheumatism, lumbago, lame back, nerv ous exhaustion, weakened or tost vital functions, kidney oisoraers and many oilier com plaints.

'. There was disappointment in the faces of the men in the crowd in the streets when, the committee reported that the prisoners were not there. "Let's go to the county jail," was the crv. "Forward," shouted the leader, and the procession moved along Sixth street to Minnesota avenue and along Minnesota to Seventh street. Not a shout was heard during the march. Later they repeated this performance at the county 9all and not finding the men there finally disbanded. The mob was orderly. - PHILIPPINE WAS BOUANCE. Michigan Soldier to Wed Kansas Girl Who Picked Up His Card. Wilson, Kan. Sept. 3. The engagement of Miss Blanche Himes, a daughter of S. P. Himes, a merchant of this place, and Lieutenant Bates Tucker, of the United States regular army, is announced, the wedding to take place in January. The announcement recalls a little romance in which these young people figured and which will shortly culminate in their mar riage. During the rush of the United States troops to the Philippines at the out break of the Spanish-American war, Mr. Tucker, who hails from Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., was a private in a Michigan volun. teer regiment. While passing through Wilson, these soldiers were greeted at the depot by crowds of fair Kansas maids, who gathered at the station at the arrival of every soldier train to cheer the boys on their way to the battlefield. It became a custom with most of the soldiers to drop their cards from the train, which were later picked up by the girls, and in al most every instance these soldier boys who had thoughtfully left their names and addresses behind found letters await ing them on their areival at Manila. In most cases these letters were from strang ers who had come into possession of their cards and had written merely out of cur iosity. In some cases, particularly this one, a correspondence was kept up dur ing the time that the soldier boy was on the islands. On his return to the States, Tucker stopped to visit his new-found sweetheart while homeward bound. On his return home a correspondence was still kept up between Mr. Tucker and Miss Himes, and has finally resulted in the announcement of their marriage. Tucker, after receiving his discharge from the volunteer army, was appointed a second lieutenant in the regular army, which position he now holds.
