TOPEKA STATE JO URN AL, WEDNESDAY EVENING.: OCTOBER 22, 1002.
KANSASJEWS,: Improvements Being llade at the New Prison Site. - Large Amount of Work Going on at Leavenworth. A HUGE SMOKESTACK. llises 125 Feet Above Uround ' . 9 Feet in Diameter. Circular Bull Fen of Two Cir cles of Barbed Wire. Leavenworth, Oct. 22. The new build ings at the new federal prison site are going ud as- ranidly as 400 men can work, but it will be no less than eight years before all of the buildings will be in perfect order and running smooth ly. One can gain no estimate of. the enor mous amount of work that is being done within the barricade Irom the out side, but a walk -through the ground fenced In. impresses one with the mag nitude of the undertaking. A reporter wenf to the site and was hown over the around by Guard Bid die. Entering at the northeast gate one first' encounters the brick making plant Where millions of bricks of the finest quality are made by a machine that is capable of compressing and turning out S8.G00 In a working day. Two men are kept at work steadily taking away the bricks formed which are hauled on cars to the kilns, where they are burned and then taken to the buildings. The laundry building with its thick walls and barred windows is almost completed and will be used by the pris on authorities for the 400 convicts at work on the buildings. The men will eat and sleen there in order to have more time in which " to work , on the buildings and will not . have the long walk in the mornings and -the even ings. - The northwest cell house is a huge af fair and it is said that it has as many brick in it as there are in all of the buildings on Delaware street. The walls are from four to six feet in width and there are to be 300 cells in this building alone. Each cell is of brick and there will be four tiers of such. Instead of constructing the cells back to back, a space has been left behind them where waste water can be taken out without entering the cell. The walls of this building are finished and slaters will commence work next week. It is about SO feet high and is one cf two that will be builv. , ,. One of the greatest sights at the prison Is the boiler room. . Ten boalers'are to be Installed here and here also is th.? huge smokestack from which two men fell re cently. The stack is built of steel and is now its full height, 125 feet. The task of putting up this stack was no smad one. Compressed air is forced through a hose of 12& feet tnto the air and tlwre used to work a hammer for driving rivets. The Stack is nine feet in diameter, but about twelve at the base. It rests on a base of concrete and the hole in which th- p;pcs from the boiler are to enter is so large that a horse was driven through it. j.Wnrkj on the big tunnel is progres-j'ns iapidly. This" is large -"enough for n. man "to walk through without stooping and about five feet wide. AH4.of-3the ' steam fiul water pipes are to Tun throug-f tins t6 the several buildings. One of the most interesting .places with in the enclosure is the "bull pen" in which the convicts are marched when thej- enter the grounds and before they leave it. It is constructed of barb wire and is circular. There are two circles of posts one within the other and about ten. strands of wire in each circle. Here the men ire kept until the guards take their positions on the walls and until the others remove their arms as none of the officers who have charge of working forces are armed. The surface of the prison vard is a per fect network of railway tracks. The prison has its own engine used in hauling stone from the quarry on the side of the hill west of Twentieth street and the lncnmo ttve is capable of running at the rate of 15 miles an hour. The. engineer convict is no novice at the work, having been a lo comotive engineer and long a member of the brotherhniKl. He receives his discharge from the prison next Mondav. Besides the railway engine there are four donkev cfigir.es constantly at work hoisting ma terial to the roofs of the buildings cr drawing cars to their places. In one of the buildinKS already com pleted are the dark cells, eight in num ber. The building is not a verv inviting looking place and the windows high above the ground are heavily barred. At the southeast corner of the big in closure is a large brick tower bullet proof in which guards are stationed. On the platform are brick walls and around the walls are holes for the.guards to shoot through in order to protect -themselves in case of an attack. At the gate near the tower inside of a high fence surrounded by strands of barb wire the two famous bloodhounds are keot end are handy in the event that a convict tries to make his escape. The. dogs ave not the ferocious kind, but they have the best of reputations for tracking criminals. Jointist Gets an Injunction. Winfield, Kan., Oct. 22. Judge Law rence of the district court has issued an order restraining the city officials from attempting to search or seize goods in the place of Henry Schmidt, one of the a' leged jointists of this city. The city offi cers have been searching this place as many as eight times a day, and the pro prietor made application to the court for an injunction on, the grounds of oppres sion., . . , ; .. .-.v.

Only Theological Institution West of the Mississippi Kiver. Kansas City, Kan., Oct. 22. The Kan sas City Baptist Theological seminary, the only theological seminary of any de nomination west of the Mississippi river was last night formally opened here. This new school starts off under auspic ious conditions with the united support Of the Baptist churches in Kansas, Mis souri, Iowa, Nebraska and other central western states. It will have 25 stud ents for its first enrollment, and, with its building half paid for and with $8,000 to defray the running expenses for the first year, the seminary's prospects are most, flattering. The building secured for the school is the old Fowler mansion in Edgerton place. It was purchased by the Baptists at a cost of StO.000 and J5.000 of this amount has already been paid. The buildinjr is situated in the highest sec tion of the city, overlooking the Mis sori and Js'aw rivers and the territory tributary. It is modern equipped, has large rooms and plenty of grounds. It has excellent advantages for a theologi cal school. Last night Baptists of the two Kan sas Citys and .many from out of town attended the opening ceremonies. Ad dresses were made by Dr. Stephen A. Northrop, acting prsident of the board of trustees, and Dr. w. P. Crannell, of Topeka. Dr. Northrop talked of "The Future of the Kansas City Theological Seminary," and also gave a history of the movement which has resulted in its establishment. Dr. Crannell's- subject was "Orthodoxy and Evangelism." After a Fecred song service, which in cluded choir and solo numbers, a recep tion was held and then the visitors were given an opportunity of inspecting! the building. The movement to establish a Baptist theological school in Kansas City was started about five years ago, but active plans were not laid until about a jear ago. when Dr. Northrop, pastor of the First Baptist church, advocated the es tablishment of the school and made an ap peal for $5,000 to further the plans. This appeal met with a hearty response on the part of Baptists throughout the middle west. The Fowler mansion in Kansas City, Kan., was decided upon as the home of the new institution, and negotiations for its' purchase were immediately entered into with the result that the transfer of the property was made last spring. In the meantime Mr. and Mrs. Charles Lovelace donated 115 acres, valued at the present time at ?10.XSO, to the school's use, so that this munificent gift gave absolute assure a nee of the success of the work begun, by Dr. Northrop and other ministers of the two cities. The appeal for cash donations was so generously r tponded to by Bap tists generally that it found that the sem inary, could be established without the necessity of selling either all or a portion of the lanA.given by .Mrt and Mrs. Love lace. and a recent meeting of the board of trustees it was decided to hold this prop erty for five, years, the belief being that it will double in value within that time. . The idea ' of establishing theological schools in the eoumereial centers is on that has found favor in the east. Medical, law and other institutions of learning along professional lines have operated successfully in the large cities, because the students are: given the opportunity of get ting practical experience along with their studies. The- theory is that theological Students can accomplish much good for themselves if given these same opportuni ties. " . The constituency of the new seminary will come from -Kansas. Missouri, Iowa. Colorado, Nebraska and Oklahoma and already much encouragement has been re ceived from these statements. Baptist congregations have practicallv furnished the new seminary and Rev. Dr. R. W. Wiseman, the financial secretary, reports that cash donations aggregating $?) per day are now being received from states in the Mississippi valley. Within a radms of 75 miles of Kansas Citv there are HO.rviO Baptists, and the board of trus tees, recognizing this fact, believe tha.t the location of the new school oelonged in either Kansas City, Mo., or Kansas City, Kan. A permanent president has not as yet been elected, but the faculty has been chosen and everything is in readiness for class work. which will be begun this morn ing. Rev. Dr. Rafferty. who has been as sociated with Baptist churches in this vi cinity for the last thirty years, will he professor of svstematic theology. Rev. James F. Wells, professor of English scripture, and church historv: Rev. Dr. Crannell. pastor of the First Baptist church. Topeka. professor of homileticis and pastor theology, and the Rev. F. L. Streeter, professor of New Testament Greek. Lectures will be given by Dr. Wil liam R. Rowlands of the First Baptist church, Lincoln. Neb : Rev. Dr. Crannell of Topeka. and Rev. Dr.Stephen A. Norm rop of this city. The regular course for students will be three years. "Every state in the west,' said Dr. Northrop last evening, "has a Baptist college, and the new- school will draw from these. The institution will belong to the great "west and it will stand alone.-' Dr. Northrop was last night introduced to wire greetings to the Missouri Baptist General association, now- in session in St. Joseph, and to the Colorado Baptist con vention now in session in Denver. GRAND RACE FOR LIFE. N. Y. Millionaire's Special, Sick Wife - Aboard, Made 61 Miles an Hour. Arkansas City, Kan., Oct. 22. A special train carrying Mr. Earhart,' a New York millionaire and his wife, passed through this city Tuesday on the way to Texas to save the life of Mrs. Earhart. The pa tient was under the care of two physicians and several nurses. . About a week ago Mr. Earhart took his wife to. Colorado for her health. It was soon discovered that the altitude affected her lungs. Reg ular trains were too slow and a 'special was chartered. The train left La Junta, Col., at 9 o'clock last night and when it arrived in this city had made an average of sixty-one miles an hour. A $3,000 Fire at Longton. Longton, Kan., Oct. 22.

Attended and Cheered Home Team. Portion of Indian Eleven Were Second Team Players But Lindsborg's Men Were Not in Star Condition. McPherson, Kas'.', Oct. 22.-The Beth any Swedes demonstrated in the game Tuesday afternoon ' that they are no mean competitors in. the game of foot ball. Oh the athletic field at Lindsborg the hardest fought gamein the'history of the college was played with the Has kell Indians. The game was fast and furious from the start. The tactics of both teams were similar, alternate end playing being the only feature. The Beahany team Has rather wealcened from several hard games last week. In the first half neither team could claim any advantage, but in the second Beth any came within seven yards of mak ing a touchdown, when they lost , tht ball. From this on it was certain that neither team would score, and the last half was finished with no advantage to either, the score being 0 to 0. Fully 1, 500 people witnessed the game. The interference was about equal, ' but the line bucking and the long punts of Hauser kept the In dians from defeat. Leslie Peterson made the star play for the Swedes, not withstanding that he' entered the game in a badly crippled condition. The gains made by both teams were small. The Swedes were rapidly gaining ground and were not far from goal when time was called. The officials were Dick Odell and Tucker. Haskell seems to have played several of their second team men in the game with Lindsborg, which perhaps accounts for the closeness of the game. It is likely that many of the star players at Haskell have been laid out by injuries received in tke recent hard, games with Illinois state university and Missouri state university. Yet the Bethany eleven was also disabled. Compared with the game, in which Haskell beat Washburn 29' to' fl the line up of the Haskell team was as follows: Against ..Against Washburn. Lindsborg. Felix right end. .Shoulder Blade Dubois right tackle Allis W. Baine right guard Shepherd Hunt ...w. center Hunt Redwater" . V: . : . left guard .'. . Lego E. Hauser left tackle... Woods Guyon left end Syldais Fallis quarter Lemott Archiquette right half..... Gokey Oliver left half Baine P. Hauser full back P. Hauser It will be seen from this that Haskell had only three first team men in the game against Lindsborg , They were. Hunt, Baine and Hauser. It Is no doupt true that many of the, second team men at Haskell are nearly or quite equal to the first team men, and there may have been some changes in the regular first team line-up since the Washburn game. In the Haskell-wasnDurn game, j-iaskeu had the following team on the field dur ing the last ten minutes of the second half, and Washburn was able to make good gains against it: Right end. Woods. . Right tackle, Gardner. , Right guard, Shephard. Center, King. Left guard. Big Leg. Left tackle. Allis. Left end, Felix. ' Quarter, Moore. '- . v uJ Right half, Jenos. Left half, Gokey. Fullback, C. Baine. Of these. Woods, Shephard, Allis and Gokey were in the line up against Linds borg. A RECEIVER APPOINTED. Baltimore Club Passes Out of Control ot Ban Johnson. Baltimore, Oct. 22. The fact that the case of Henry S. Rippell & Co., build ers, against the Baltimore baseball and athletic company, has reached the stage of the appointment of receivers for the affairs of the baseball company, will be regarded over the country as a tacit ad mission that Ban Johnson, president of the American league, nas developed his plans for placing a club in New York and abandoning Baltimore as a baseball city. By the decision of Judge Stock today appointing receivers for the Bal timore baseball and athletic associa tion, the claim of Riopel & Co- takes precedence of the assignment of the lease of the grounds by the company to Ban Johnson, president of the American league. Whether the courts determine that Johnson or the Baltimore baseball com pany controls the grounds matters not in its relationship to the claim of Rip pell the builder. It is apparent that had Johnson had any idea of using the grounds he would have taken steps to satisfy P.ippell & Co. That he permits the advancement of the claims against the grounds indicates that he does not intend to use the grounds again, and that Baltimore will be without baseball unless Manager Hanlon of the National league comes to the rescue. The appointment of receivers is made by the consent of the baseball company, which acknowledges that a considerable sum is due Rippell & Co., which the company is unable to pay, because Ban Johnson created what he terms a for feiture of the baseball franchise belong ing to the company. Jockey Henry Retains Labori. Paris, Oct. 22. Jockey J. Reiff failed to keep his appointment with, his solici tors, Kelly & Boddington, today in re gard to the withdrawal of his license. It is rumored that Reiff 's father, ,who is in California, proposes to bx tag an action in behalf of his son. who is a minor. Milton Henry, the other . American jockey whose license was withdrawn, has retained Maitre Labori, who de fended ex-Captain Dreyfus, and who has appeared for some of the Americans in volved in the turf scandals recently, to look after his interests. : K. TJ. Very Poor on Defense. Lawrence, Kan., Oct. 22. The football practice on McCook, field Tuesday after noon was again unsatisfactory, and the University of Kansas men will have to take all kindy of-, a brae'"tp make a showing against. Wiseonsiii. on Satur day. The men were forked on signals for over an hour and then Coach Curtis lined the two elevens up- for scrimmage work. On the kickoff the scrubs would bring back the ball 20 to 35 yards every time, and after they had -fceen . given several trials, the scrubs were finally told to go ahead, and in less than four minutes of play had made a touchdown. The advances weref made steadily for half a dozen plays, when -a man was shoved clear, through ithe line and went down the field 40 yards for the touch down. At no time did the scrubs fall to make their gains, and only once were they forced to puntj- When the first team was given the' ball it found Jt just as easy to go through the scrub line, showing the -lali-around weakness on defense. --.ht'rri : TERRY A TRUE FEATHER. ' McGovern Willing to Bet $50O He Can Do 120 Pounds in Ten Days. . Chicago, Oct. 22. Terry McGovern is a little fellow, to. hear him talk, and anybody who thinks he has outgrown the true featherweight class and is no longer able to make 122 pounds can have $500 of his money, so he says. This proposition J to; make this weight was made by the Jittle Brooklynite upon his arrival in town, vhen he offered to bet Harry Franks $500 that he would make 120 pounds inside of ten days. "You are looking big, Terry," said Franks, and then, just to start some thing Terry flashes a roll as big as his fist. "I'll bet you $500 'that I can do 122 pounds in two weeks'," said McGovern. "Yes, I'll do better than that. I'll put the money up right now to do 120 pounds inside of ten days, and this goes for anybody that, thinks they can win my money.". . : McGovern is fHlfflling a week's en gagement at a local theater, and yester day afternoon and evening boxed four fast rounds with Billy Finucane, the little west sider, " The bout was fast and spirited, although McGovern held in his punches, arid allowed Finucane to make a good exhibition. Terry is anxious concerning his match with Young Garbett and says he is afraid somebody else will get to him and manage to- win before he has the chance to regain his championship laurels. McGoveVn is pleased with his matching with Benny Yanger, the local boxer, and hopes a club will soon make a satisfactory bid for it. He will leave for the ert after his theatrical engage ment is out and will do his training there for both the Corbett and Yanger fights. New Track for Gothatnites. 3." New York, Oct. 22. When- the Morris park track shall have pased into history and been cut up into building lots its place among Metropolitan race courses will be taken by a new track which will be the greatest course in the United States. It will be controlled by men who will be responsible for the popu larity of the sport of kings and will be a grand affair in every particular. The track will be located in the Jamaica Plains section of Hempstead, where 480 acres of land has been secured at an average price of $800 per acre. The purchasers of the property, acting through agents, are said to be August Belmont, William G. WThitney, Thomas F. Hitchcock, Dr. E.-D. Morgan, J.. Pier-; pont Morgan and other, men of wealth. On the plot- is to be reared the grand est race course in the world. Paddocks, club houses and grounds are to be laid out without regard to expense and a feature of the course is to be the chute of one mile straightaway, without hol low or break, over which it is expected world's records wfl be made. Durnell Not "in Favor East. New York, Oct. "22. There was a story current at Morris park today., that "Boots" Durnell, who is a part owner of the-western colt McChesney, was not in the good graces of, the jFrench jockey club, and ;fcrthat: rfasoii his colt could not race, on-, an eastern.. track, Purnell. had his joekSy's,. 1 license .revoked in France a year ago, but -he. was. still per mitted to train .race bo,rses,: which would make it appear that there could be no objection to; him here. The Cali fornia jockey club, it is said, has re fused to- allow his horses to race there, but the Wrestern jockey club, operating the Chicago track, has never even con sidered Durnell's good standing. Her- mis and McChesney at Morris park is out of the question now. but an effort will be made to bring them together at Bennings. Hermis worked a mile and a half between races today, his time for the last mile being 1:40. Poor Outlook at Old Penn. :-- Philadelphia. Pa., Oct. 22. At Pennsyl vania the football situation is the saddest in many years. When the season opened those who followred the quakers' fortunes expected to see a round up of some good material at Franklin field. But the fact becomes more apparent day by day that in the matter of purity in athletics the red and blue practices what it preaches, not only as to the letter but as to the spirit of the law. There are at least half a dozen -men playing on other teams today who have been lost to Phil adelphia for the lack of a scholarship. Starting the season with the remnants of a former disaster, Coach Williams and his assistants made an excellent begin ning. The team took a spurt In the Get tysburg game, which caused hope to sweil in the breasts of alumni and students. Then the hospital claimed both quarter backs and several other men, and the red and blue-airship, that had 3tarted so prt?t ty an ascent, came down with a crash and Brown cavorted over and around the wreck. Pfeffer Breaks an Arm. Chicago, Oct. ' 22. Fred Pfeffer has broken his arm. The accident resulted from a throw to nrst in practice at Ra cine. The throw snapped the arm and it is doubtful if Pfeffer will ever play again. Perhaps he will have to take to bowling the way his old side partner in the stone wall infield has done. The right field half of that infield is still living. Anson is running his billiard and bowling hall and has been known to make a political speech. Burns and Williamson are both dead. Welsh Will Train for Fleischman. - New York, Oct. 22 Julius Fleischman, who was at Morris park today said that when his term as mayor of Cincin nati expires next July he will devote his entire time to his racing stable. Tom Welch will train exclusively for him, as he has severed his connection with Frank Farrell. Americans 5 ; Nationals 4. Kansas City, Oct. 22. The stars of the American and.

John T. Brush, the new owner of the baseball club, is expect ed to arrive in this city Wednesday from his home in Indianapolis. Then, maybe, the names of New York's next year team will be revealed. Johnny McGraw is still doing his sphinx act, and no one need ex pect to hear how the. Giants will line up in 1903 until John T- gets here. Pven then it is likely that another excuse will be made for a delav." "' - ' It is probable McGraw has not secured Christy Mathewson's signature to a con tract for next season.- Frank Bowerman is another McGraw has not . signed, and. even though "Matty" may make up his mind later on. it is a sure thing Bowerman will not. for Bowerman is signed with the St. Louis American league club for two years at a salary of $3,750 a year.

Atlanta, Ga. big catcher at the time he signed received a bonus of $500 in cash, and, if details are necessary, the money was paid in one bill. But while McGraw is remaining silent, the American league is keeping New York ers interested in baseball. The new or ganization is constantly sending out re ports that it will put a team in this city next year, and the persistency of the re port leads all to believe that there is more than mere talk to the story. The latest news from the American league camp is that Merlet Adkins. - the crack pitcher of the Milwaukee team of the Western league, has signed to play with the American league team in New York next year. The story comes from Adkins himself, so it amounts to something. . 'Ihe PlUsburg team may lose another one of. its stars. Clarence Beaumont, the swift center fielder, it is said, has been flirting with the American league, and le ports say that if he is assured ' a place on a New York team he will come here. Harry Killillea. who signed Adkins, has been authorized to offer Beaumont $5,000 for his year's services. Princeton Takes New Hope. Princeton-, N. J., Oct. 22. Princeton in the next three weeks will meet her three biggest rivals this year, Columbia, Cornell and Yale. Every bit of work done by any of these teams is closely taken into ac count by the Princeton team. To learn of. Cornell's defeat by the Indians a.l't.?r the Ithacans have been given, by many the championship this year, turned the tide of feeling somewhat. Then Columbia and Yale did not make showings which frighten Princeton. - But the thing most in favor of the tiger team is its own score and the way it work ed to get it ini the game with Washington and Jefferson. F;he men today are all in good condition, and a hard week is being put in perfecting plays for Columbia next Saturday: 1 Shake-Up Likely at Cornell. Ithaca. N. Y., Oct. 22. Ithaca is a city of mourning on account of Cornell's tie feat at the hands of the Carlisle Indians Saturday. Never -in the hisUiry of ath letics at Cornell was there a greater sur prise and. despite the fact that Cornell had a crippled back field and that Brewster was not in the best of condition, Cornell has been looking for victory. Captain Warner is wearing a heavy bandage around his head, while one eye is swollen to twice its normal size. Lar kin has a severe muscle, bruise and Cof fin is badly bruised up. " Coach Reed has arrived from Princeton and no sooner had he made his appearance than all sorts of rumors regarding changes in the make up of the eleven were afloat. It is possible' that some of the line men will be- utilized in the back field, while it is practically certain', that Davitt will not retain the position at center. ' ' New TuU Back for Yale. New Haven, Corin.. OctJ' 22. Yale's back field will be strengthened tpday byt the rec tum of Morgan Bowman, the freshman from Hill school, who was, injured twice in Succession and has been 'cripled three of the five weeks since the season opened. Bowman will probably be the permanent choice for varsity full back. Charley Raf ferty of Chicago, last year's - end rush, will take an examination, to remove the conditions in his studies. He has been ineligible all the fall. If he passes he will rejoin the eleven immediately. . All the members of. the eleven finished Saturday's West Point game in excellent condition.
