OF TH3 ASSOOZATSP The State Journal Is a member of the Associated Press and receives the full day telegraph report of that great news or- Sanizatlnn for exclusive afternoon puollca on in Topeka. The news Is received In the State Jour nal building over wires for this sole pur pose, busv through the entire day. A Complete copy of the ni&ht report la a,so received. David Bennett Hill should repeat his declaration that he is a Democrat lest Im be put down on the list of Socialists. It looks now as though the question tf whether or not there is a tariff on anthracite will not be settled for the Voter before election. The management of the St. Louis World's Fair is expected to open the how with the handicap of a decent and moral midway. The other kind prob ably will be located outside the grounds. Will Frank Stahl be very mad should he wake up on the morning of Novem ber S and find that his supposedly good friends have made him the election scapegoat? All indications point that way at present. The business of the party organ is to make the voter believe black is white If it become necessary to do po for the success of the ticket. It appears to be regarded as imperative to do this during, the present state campaign. The coal barons said if they had more eoldiers they could mine more coal. They got the additional troops but the coal output has not increased. They explain the situation now by saying that pending arbitration negotiations prevent the men from returning to work. ' Dispatch. Pittsburg: It is stated by an authority that has been giving some attention to the question of the post check currency that if business men and business organizations urge the j passage of legislation to provide it the i action of congress can be secured at the next session. Tht being the case there should be a general call for that action. The post check currency means simply the printing of circulating notes in such farm that the holder endorsing a note in his possession can convert it into a draft payabl-olyH the person named In the endorsement. This will do away with the loss of time, annoyance and expense of a journey to secure a money order every time that the sending of a small remittance is necessary. The saving to the public will immensely out weigh the slight increase in cost to the government, and the loss of revenues from money orders. There should be a strong representation to congress in favor of the bill. A Wall street view of the coal strike and its consequences is set forth in th latest issue of the Clews & Co.'s Finan cial Review. whi h says: "The coal strike has become a de pressing factor in the market, not so much for Us effect upon the coal shares as for the Important questions involved. The threatening attitude of labor and the sharpening of issues between mon opolies of capital and monopolies of labor are H'k lv to have a - seriously de-1-terrent effect upon all s .rts of new en toj prises, unless an earlv settlement of the coal strike is fort heoming. The al most certain proj etion of these issue?, into the coming elections and the in evitable raising of a new set of econ omic problems with which the country is not yet piep.ired to deal are certalrt to have a depressing effect upon all lines of business. It is ferfunate that the country is still enjoying great commer cial and industrial activity, and that peroral conditions are sound: hut it -would be foliy to overleok that a new set of influences are coming Into promi nence which will have to be seriously rei koned wit'i in business affairs as. well as in polities." THE CEMENT AGE. Indications are not wanting that ce ment is soon to become an important factor in the industrial and commercial development of the United States. Its ready adaptability " for use as building material, dec orative purposes and street improvement is not only suggested by the erec tion of costly manufacturing plants in many parts of the Union, but is even more strongly suggested by the rapid Increase in the production of ce ment during the past deCade. and es pecially during the past live years. Ac cording to figures received by the treas ury bureau of statistics, the production of cement in the United States has act ually doubled in five years, the total for 1901 being 20 million barrels, as against 10 million barrels in 1887: while during the period from 1S92 up to the beginning of 1S06 the production had remained practically stationary at about SV2 mil lion barrels per annum. That American manufacturers are be ginning to take advantage of the home market for cement is seen by an exam ination of the .official figures of the bu reau of statistics relative to the com merce in this article. The exports of cement are very small. Prior to 1897 they were too insignificant for separate enumeration; in that year they amounted to 33 thousand barrels, valued at 171,160, and have steadily increased, year by year since that; time, 299,462 barrels having been exported in 192, valued at $051,526. Meantime the mar ket for foreign cement is becoming more and more restricted in the United States. In 1892 the imports amounted to nearly three million barrels, valued at a little less than four million dollars, the importations remaining practically sta tionary from that time until 1301. when they showed a marked downward ten dency, being in that year 1, 593,926 bar rels, valued at $2,198,891, and In 1902, 1,059,010 barrels, valued at $1,478,452, the lowest roint reached in the Dast 15 years. While these figures are small in comparison with the volume of our to tal commerce, they are chiefly interest ing as showing the tendencies in an in dustry which is still in its initial stages, but which promises to supply an im portant substitute for wood, stone and iron in the building- and allied trades. The following paragraph from the To ronto World, though addressed primar ily to Canadian readers, is even more applicable to conditions in the United States: "The use of Portland cement is in its infancy and the manufacture of it on a large scale is only beginning in this country. Cement promises to re place stone for all kinds of heavy foun dations and other wall works, to re place stone for paving, to replace brick very largely for building, and to replace lumber where lumber tag been used. Indeed, cement will noon b". next to steel, perhaps more than steel, the chief building material of thi continent. Our houses w ill soon come to be of cement and evpry day sees the field for the use of cement growing at a surprising: ra tio." EDITORIAL COMMENT. "Welcome the Felt Hat. Chicago Chronicle: Fashions in men's headgear, usually unsightly and uncomfortable, are this autumn distinctly sensible and artistic. To a considerable extent the felt hat has displaced the stiff, hot, unhandsome "derby." The male portion of the popu lation will this winter look like Mexican vaqueros so far as their hats are con cerned. The soft felt hat is comfortable, and, if it be propei ly chosen, it is artistic. It has possibilities of which the hard hat is destitute. If it has a generous width of brim it imparts to the wearer an air of breeziness not to say strenuousness - which would be impossible of attain ment with a "derby" or a "plug." lut either of the latter on an Italian b.indit or a Montana cowboy and the romance which surrounds either character would be turned into commonplace if not intr. ridicule. The soft hat is the hat of ro mance, of melodrama, of poetry. It is associated with long cloaks and guitars and rapiers. It makes for sentiment as opposed to the mere dry, cold routine of dollar-getting. Therefore the appearance of the som brero for the sombrero is the ruling style of the autumn felt hats is wel come. It indicates that we are pro gressing beyond the Gradgrir.d stage of civilization. If next year the tailors shall issue a mandate commanding male humanity to wear knee breeches we shall have gone far upon the road which leads to Arcadia. Republicans Need to Work. New York Press: If the Republicans of the state of New York will look carefully at the registration- figures they will realize that it is time for them to get up and do something. There is no party which suft'eis such serious effects from "ap athy" as the Republican party. There is no state where apathy results in such public- evils as the state of New York. And at this stage of the campaign the one sure thing that rn-iy be said of it is that there is too much apathy. Not enough citizens are registering. Not enough citizens will vote, if this sort of thing goes on. to give Governor Odcll the support he deserves and tliN suppr-rt lie must have if New York is to stand up among the states o1 tne unio'ii lirm in the faith of the principles of the Republican party and strong for its battles. If the people of this state think they are so well off that they need not ex ert themselves to get anything better they are treading the path that is the most dangerous of all clangers to in dividuals, nai ites. peoples and nations. If they sit down and do nothing while their opponents are a'ield and working they take the b"st possibh- means to lose the very things with which they are content and hieh they wish to keep. As much as ever if was necessary for the voters of this state to get out and work for what they wished to gain is it now necessary for them, having gained it. to get out and work and vote to kee.p it. In their satisfaction and case the Re publicans of New York are asleep. They must wake up. They must be shaken into life and action. They must get up and go to work to do something. Olney's View of the Strike. Chicago Post. In ii-ading Mr. Olney's strong and significant speech on the coal strike sit uation allowance must be made for his "stalwart" Democracy. This quality will account for the inc idental attack on the general policy of the Republicans as regards protection into the validity of the protective principle it is not nec essaty to inquire at this juncture. Even Mr. olney will acknowledge that the coal trust is not "sheltered'' by protec tion, though it managed to secure a duty on anthracite by "a sneaking and cowardly" trick, in Secretary Moody's word-:. The points in Mr. Olney's speech that the e; f rators and their few sympathiz ers will do tvc-11 to ponder are these: That it Iocs not Ho in th mouth of "most unblushing and persistent law breakers" to accuse the striking miners of lawlessness and anarchy, and that there is nothing but arrogant folly in the pretense of the operators that they are fighting for a "princ iple." With regard to the charge of lawless ness against the operators. Mr. Olney is quite specific. He sjys: "For years they have defied the law of Pennsylvania, which forbids common carriers engag ing in the business of mining. For years they have discriminated between customers ir, the ireisrht charges on th. ir railroads ;n violation of the inter state commerce law". For vears they have unlawfully monopolized interstate commerce in violation of the Sherman anti-trust law." These statements are not new. but thev are much more im pressive when made bv a man of Mr. Olney's acumen and authority in mat ters of law. And what is the "principle" the oper ators arj so "heroically" defending against the assaults of the public, the president, the governor of New York and the press of the country? They cannot afford to "recognize" the miners' union, and arbitration would involve such recognition. Mr. Olney tells them that in taking that attitude they are as blind to the salient facts of the era they are living in as they are' oblivious of legal obligations. And he goes on to say: "In these days of combination of capital on a scale and to an extent as startling as it is urprecedented. can they possibly imagine that labor is to be denied an equivalent right o combi nation? If they do, they reckon with out that sense of fairness and of justice which alwavs animates the American .people. If they do. it is only another instance. of their comDlefe indifference to the laws of the land." The operators are clamoring for the enforcement o--law. 14 v ali means, let the law be enfroced against them first of all Americans henrtily indorse Mr. Olney'H impressive declaration that 'law suovemp and eerual for all men is to the American people what the ark of the covenant was to the Jews of jld while we have it we need not fear for our safety, when we lose it we are far ad vanced on. the high, road to ruin." JAYHAWXER JOTS. Iola is going ping-pong crazy. A Lawrence man has a grove of pecan bearing trees. An Atchison boy lost a nickel and while looking for it found a $5 bill. A McPherson county farmer raised some fine samples of cotton on his farm this j ear. The favorite amusement of an Ottawa dog is jumping through plate glass win dows. Many Reno county citizens are now pay ing their road tax and a fine for de linquency. Concordia has been tortured this week with a couple of wancering amateur bag pipe artists. A Concordia man advertises a liberal re ward for a lost five dollar bill. How will he identify it? A noted Chicago divine after an Inspec tion of the Franklin county Jail declares it "unfit for swine." "Little Squaw, "a Franklin county horse, won the 2:06 pace in Kentucky this week and a $1,5"0 purse. A Reno county woman will bear through life tile marks from a can of scalding ap ples exploding in her face. Chanute has a new $1,000 crusher. City prisoners will be allowed to work out their fines feeding the hungry machine rock. An old fashioned fiddler contest is billed for Iola October 25. The best rendition of ".Money Musk'' will take the blue ribbon. Wichita has been deluged with church conventions this week. The moral effect will be pretty much like pouring water on a cluck's back. From a two-year-old Lyon county rooster his owner cut a spur over three inches in length. The bird weighed 2S pounds. There will be less apple butter and cider in McPherson county this winter than Inst. The apple tree census shows 18,841 fewer bearing trees than in l.'Ol. Just when Topeka begins to assume metropolitan airs a measly old brown cur with a tin can tied to its tail will go yelp ing down Kansas avenue. The bread war at Ottawa, two loaves for p. nickel, is still in force. After the coal strike is settled the president might turn his attention to Kansas. In the absence of the Welsh Congrega tional pastor his wife took the pulpit Sun day arid preached one of the best sermons heard in Emporia in years. Til a Coffeyville elopement case the man was given ninety clays and court costs and the woman returned to her husband. Which will be punished the most? At the end of the fourth inning in a Coffeyville ball game a jack rabbit dashed j players joined in the chase and the con test closed. A half dozen boys under twelve years were in the Leavenworth police court . for e'isturhing church service. A little more attention from the craddle up, by their parents, would have saved several dollars in fines besides the humiliation. An Emporia man kissed his wife so hard in the dark that he almost broke her rose. And now the spouse declares he thought her the hired girl, as he isn't half that strenuous In the day time. GLOBE SIGHTS. From the Atchison Globe. The average town man has more appe tite than digestion. A striker has no more fear of a mil itiaman than he has of a scab. Seme men start wrong, and are late at every station all through life. , Women arc slow in keeping every en gagement except an engagement to marry. You neve-r know when women are hav ing a good time; you never know when they have a headache. We have noticed that when people have a great deed of company, they speak of it as "an awful lot." Whatever a dog does, he eloes openly: if he wants a sheep, he takes after it, and keeps going until somebody shoots at him. When a farmer is given a pair of slip pers, he puts them away to wear, when he is past SO, and too old to work on the farm. You can compliment a woman by prais ing her home, or her childre n, but com pliments given to a rr.an must be first hand. We suppose one reason a mother is so fond of her boys Is that in thrm she has found some one who appreciates her cook ing. An Atchison woman tallis so continuous ly that when she has a caller, people in the next room think she is reading ahmd. To live up to a man's ideal of her, a wo man should never put herself in a position where she has to mend his socks, and take back talk. When a woman complains of being ex tremely fragile, some mean man present quotes statistics to prove that women live longer than men. The average political meeting is so un interesting that we wonder, when we at tend one. why more of those present are never se en at a prayer meeting. The average bov is so starved by meal time that it is a wonder his mother isn't afraid to give him solids, without first breaking his fast with broths. The kind of persons who do a dollar's worth of talking with every five cents worth of business transacted, never seem to have anything to keep them at home. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Ilecord.j Even a drum may be a delusion and a snare. When a man is generous to a fault it is usually his own fault. The football plarer can't say that he never does things by halves. A self-made man is generally one who has made his ow n opportunities. A man's love isn't apt to grow cold if his breakfasts are kept warm. All men are born equal, but a good many of them get their legs pul l. The sirl of the period doesn't like to be told that she is ungentlemanly. The fellow who rides a hobby should le careful that it doesn't run away with him. Hoax "What would you take for a cold?" Joax "Take for it! I'd give it awav." - The young man measured six feet thrno. She measured three feet nine. "My darling, how I long," quoth he, "To call thee shortly mine!" Many a woman has been spoiled by flattery. Someone once told Lot's wife that she was the salt of the earth, and it turned her head. He courted a gem of a girl. And told her that she was his pearl; Hut when they were married Her- ma came and tarried. Though he didn't like mother of pearl. "It's ail right to keep your good resolutions." says the Alanayuuk Philos- opher; "but don't keep them wrapped up in cotton in aglass case." Never trust a trust unless a trust will trust you. .. : JEFF DAls REPLIES. Manhattan Editor Discusses Action of Students. The war between the friends of Presi dent Nichols, of the State Agricultural college, and Ji J. Davis, editor of the Manhattan Mercury, is becoming more violent than ever., Davis criticised In unmeasured terms the action of some of the students of the college in hiss ing two of the regents recently. In return a mob of the students burned Davis in effigy on the streets of Man hattan and also visited his house in the course of the demonstration. The fol lowing is an editorial on the subject from this week's Mercury: "During our absence from home on the night of October 10 a mob of college students met and resolved: First, to de stroy the Mercury office and throw the type in the river. One of the mob sug gested that some one might be killed. They re.-olved: Second, to mob J. J. Davis, euitor and proprietor of the Mer cury. Again it was suggested that some one might be killed . They resolved; Third, to form, march, to the business portion of the city, with college yell and cheers for Nichols; and occasional dis charge of f:re arms, to burn the timid editor of the Mercury in effigy. This they did. Then a noiCon'of the more desperate members marches to our house, many of them entered our vard. went around the house, looked into the windows, alarming our family and neighbors by their yells and threats of violence. This is the history of the mob as we have it from eye-witnesses. "Every member o" that mob was a violator of law. Their loud yelling and cheering for Nichols disturbed the peace. The discharging of firearms was a crim inal offense. Threats of murder and de struction cf property made them an archists. Entering my yard and search ing my house Jv looking into the win dows was an offense against law and common decent ;'. "Now as to the responsibility: Per haps two-thirds of that mob had never read the article, and did not know why they were making criminals of them selves. It has been suggested that lead ing Republicans were the instigatorr. This we are not inclined to credit though some of them are said to have been happy spectators of that disgraceful scene, and some are said to have ap proved of the mob on the following mcrniner. "That the. mob had leaders is known, and while guilty of overt acts drew their inspiration from a chaotic condition known to the college only since the ad ministration of President Nichols. "We understand that Mr. Niehcls is a reformed Democrat, and as a Repub lican is not in harmony with some of the members of the board of regents, or more especially Mr. Coburn and those who refuse to change the word "agricul tural" on Mr. Nichols' motion. "When the regents were hissed in the chapel Presid"nt Nichols sat in silence and by his silence endorsed an exhibi tion of mob spirit. This has not been denied and can be accepted as true tilt refuted, of which we have heard of no effort. Such an endorsement was a legitimate inceptive to the formation and unlawful action of the mob on the night of October 10. "Under the administration of Fair child and Will the Murcury told the truth as it saw and understood condi tions, but it remained for the adminis tration of Nichols to defy the law and permit the making c-f criminals. "Had the board of regents been hissed by the students of the college during the administration of Will, the Repub lican papers would have gone insane in their wrath against Piesident Will. "The Mercury has told the truth and stands by its utterances. "One man is no match for a mob of 300 physically. Mobs are always treach erous and cowardly, and like a pack of wolves are reckless and bloodthirsty be cause conscious of superior strength. "If the leader's of the college mob are the brave, courageous men they claim to be, they will not seek to conceal the part tiit--;' took in that demonstration on the night of .October 10. Send us your names and "tate what particular part you took in the riot, in which you appeared to be so proud and enthusias tic, and we will add to your imagi nary glory by placing you squarely be fore the public. If you do not wish to send it. then come in, one at a time, that the deal may be fair and the olav may be equal. "If the Mercury violates the law it is amenable to the law. but it is not amenable to the mob If the law i insufficient or if the officers of the law indifferent, we shall promptly defend our property and our person. "We sincerely deplore, as a citizen. the mob spirit end the mob's act", but if a statement of facts and logical crit icisms provokes a mob after each is sue of the Mercury, we will continue to state facts and make criticism"; that is our legitimate calling; it is the busi ness we follow, and we expect to follow it until death us do Dart. "We shall wait impatiently for a new governor, new regents, a new presi dent, a higher and better deportment at the Kansas State Agricultural col lege, and the enforcement of law against riots in the city of Manhattan." Prominent Banker Dead. New Yory. Oct. 16. William Harmon Brown, a retired member of the firm of Brown Brothers & Co., and for many years one of the best known financiers of Wall street, Is dead at his home in this city. LOCAL MENTION. Mayor Parker is in Holton. and will not return until Friday evening. A. L Wilmoth. of Concordia, a regent of the State university, was in Topeka last night. Mr. and Mrs. Evan J. Thomas, of 510 Jefferson street, are the parents of a daughter, born at noon today. Superintendent Frank Nelson will represent Iow-a university at the "coro nation of Chancellor Strong at Law rence. He is an alumnus of that uni versity. Superintendent Frank Nelson general ly does not take -much interest in foot ball, but he met the excursion from Lindsborg this afternoon and is rooting for Bethany. "The social that was to have been given by the Epworth League of the First Methodist church at the parson age, corner of Fifth street and Topeka avenue, on Friday evening, has been postponed until Saturday evening, Octo ber 18. The Barber company . will begin re pairing the pavements where the tele phone company has torn them up to lay their conduits in about a week. Citr Engineer McCabe is making a list of excavations which plumbers haye made through the asphalt, and these places will be repaired at the same time. No work will be done for the city at large. People living- out in Quinton Heights are complaining of the indiscriminate shooting of "rearms in that - part of town every night. It is probably the work of a tough gang of boys whicn infests the neighborhood, and a good de tective from the police departmen should be put on their trail. The object of the bovs seems to be to break window lights. Ono house on Clay streest has had Ave window lights broken within the past two or three months. DEFIED THE PREMIER. John O'Donnell Shakes His Fist in Balfour's Face. London, Oct. 16. During an exciting scene in the house of commons today Premier Balfour moved the suspension of John O'Donnell and the latter crossed the floor, stood in front of Mr. Ealfour, shouted defiance and shook his fist in the premier's face. Mr. O'Donnell was suspended by a vote of 341 to 51. The sitting opened with a turbulent de bate. Premier Balfour moved that the remainder of the session be entirely de voted to government business which he explained would consist chiefly of the dis cussion of the education and London wa ter bills, while the Indian budget, the Uganda railroad, sugar bounty and the supply vote would enable the procedure to be carried out. The Transvaal, he added, would also require mention. James Bryce, leading the Liberals in the absence of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannner-man, made a mild protest and then came the storm. Patrick O'Brien, sitting In the place usually occupied by. John Redmond, the Irish leader in the house, asked that at least a day between now and Christmas be devoted to the discussion of the serious itate of affairs in Ireland. Mr. Balfour replied that if the request for such an opportunity came from tha Liberal leaders the government would grant it but they could not notice it from the Irish party. William O'Brien thereupon made an im passioned speech, warning the house that Ireland was on the verge of revolt. The constitution, he said, was practically sus pended, and now the members were gag ged in the only parliament they had. Throughout Mr. O'Brien's remarks the Irish members kept up a perfect storm of applause. When Mr. Wyndham. the chief secretary for Ireland, entered the house, the Irish members hissed him loudly and the speaker who was frequently on his feet asking for order, sternly repressed the demonstration. Mr. Lloyd-George, backed up by Irish members and T. P. O'Connor, brought the excitement to a fever heat, bitterly up braiding Mr. Balfour for declaring that Irish matters must only be discussed by favor of the English Liberals. Qnly after a heated colloquy with the speaker was Mr. O'Connor prevented from voicing abuse of Mr. Wyndham and a description of the alarming state of Ire land, which the other nationalist members had not touched on. During the afternoon the speaker's rul ing raised renewed clamor from the Irish benches. , Members of the house of lords, as spec tators, crowded Into the house of com mons in expectation of a scene for the threats from the Irish benches became more and more audible. The climax canne unexpectedly. Mr. Healy, amid ,. intense excitement, said: "I rise to speak as a native of Uganda." and then in a speech which on all sides was characterized as one of the finest sa tires ever heard in the bouse of commons. Mr. Healy, always as a Ugandan, thanked the premier for his consideration which enabled the imperial parliament to devote time to the discussion of native affairs. He complimented Mr. Balfour on being able to sufficiently detach himself so as to be oblivious of the vital disturbances pre vailing in "that distant and distressful country, Ireland." In this vein whTch irresistibly held the attention of the bouse and which caused Mr. Balfour himself frequent amusement, Mr. Healy completed what a unionist member defined as one of "the finest sa tirical indictments" the government had ever undergone. Other nationalist members continued the debate fiercely, elcclaring that IrisTi affairs were at present more important to Eng land than any of the matter mentioned in Mr. Balfour's programme. William Redmond regretted that the Irish people could not with arms in their hands strike a blow against the violent tvranny to which they were subjected. The present action of the government, he declared, afforeled a reason why the mem bers would take the first opportunity of hurling the ministers from office. BIG STRIKE OF GOLD. Bonanza Find in the Wild Horse Mine or Cripple Creek. Colorado Springs. Colo.. Oct. 16. The largest body of bonanza ore ever opened up in Cripple Creek's history has beer, found at SOO-foot depth in the famous Wild Horse mine of the United Mines company on Bull Hill. The chute, when uncovered some time ago in the eighth level, was five feet wi:'e. It has since been proved up for SO feet. It has gradually increased to 26 feet wide and 50 feet high. Sample values obtained today show the ore to te worth across the entire vein $140 to $1,120. Select specimens carry values trom S12.RU0 to $14,000. Thousands of tons of ore have been uncovered. The vein, according to experts, extends to the ninth level and perhaps to 1,500 The Wild Horse has produced $S00.0C0 during the riast year. It is now one of Colorado's irreatest mines.

A poker room in the old Vermont house was raided last night by Constables Hall and Riggs, assisted by Prosecuting Attorney Core for Asthma and Hay Fever The statements published below con firm the claim of Dr. Schiffinann that his remedy is an absolute euro for Asthma and Hay Fever. Mrs. Mary Zachery, Pleasant Hill, La., says: "I havo found your Asthma Cure a permanent euro for Asthma, for which I used it 7 years ago. I have never had the slightest return of the trouble since. I have also found your remedy excellent in Bronchial affections." A Hay Fever sufferer writes: "I have had Ilay Fever for i years. I bought a package of your remedy (Schiffmann's Asthma Cure), of our druggist and duo to Its uso this is the first summer that I have not been troubled."

The latter is said to have fired several shots before entering the room, and so frightened the inmates that they jumped from- the second Rtory of the building. Several were badly hurt in the fall. One cf the proprietors, Lee liaron, used an umbrella as a parachute, but did not escape injury. THEY WOULDN'T RIDE. Lindsborg Football Players and liooters Walk Up Town. Benny Owen and his heavy Bethany college football team came in from Lindsborg at 1 e'clock over the Missouri Pacific on a special train of four cars with 250 rooters with them and a brass band. The rooters were bedecked with long streamers of blue and vellow and they felt confident that their team would win. "We certainly expect to win," said Owen. "The merger with the Me dics makes it a harder game lor us and Leslie Peterson, our captain and Dave Peterson, the halfback are both out of the game on account of injuries received in our last game. We'll try to win but can tell more about it after the game.' Owen and his players are quartered at the Throop hotel. The men are in good condition and confident of a victory.
