Football interest now centers on the game to be played on the Washburn Held Saturday afternoon between the Washburn-Medics and the Haskell In cians. CUNNINoTi'AM. Right Tackle on the Washburn Eleven. The game played Tuesday between the Bethany college team and the second eleven from Haskll institute is the only contest which tends to throw any light on the coming struggle, and this is but little, for the first team will play in Topeka. The Washburn-Medics and Pcthany played a tie game so far as the scoring c f touchdowns went. Each team rr.ade two, but Washburn won by one goal kicked. The first team of the Indian school defeated Missouri univer sity the same day 40 to nothing. The second Indian team augmented by first team men then played Bethany a tie game, nothing to nothing. The entire first Indian team will be on the gridiron in Topeka. . v v- , 'Mr BAINE, Half Back' on the Haskell Team. This would indicate that the Indians will defeat the Washburn-Medio team by an overwhelming score, but surprises often take place on the gridiron, as for instance the surprise that the College of Emporia gave the Topeka team. The Washburn-Medio players have an un limited supply of grit and determina tion to draw from, while the Haskell players have a certain amount of, play in thera and can not strain a point to put up a little fiercer struggle. Moie than once Washburn pluck has pulled a victory out of what loaked like defeat. The Washburn-Medics have plenty of jrood substitutes tor ail positions, and many changes may be made in the line after the game starts. Lakin is still suffering from injuries and may not be able to play out the game. Should he go out, Read, who has been making an excellent showing, will go into the back field. Read was the player who took Wade Moore's place at half when he retired in the Ottawa-Washburn game on Thanksgiving day in In that game Read distinguished himself. Read has been playing a game which endangers Caldwell keeping his place at half. The Washburn Medic line is in good condition. Stahl and Earnest are able to take good care of the ends and the rest of the line has been doing good work. In the practice games the ball has been fumbled a good deal but Worsley will be at quarter and he can be relied upon. In the Haskell line up will be the great Paine who played with Carlisle and car ried the ball through the Harvard line for a touchdown. He has done little else for half a dozen year3 but play football. Migeul. Archicpiette, Fal'.is, Oliver and Guyon, also have several years' exper ience. The teams will go into the game with the following line up. Washburn-Medics. Position. Haskell.

Kohl, Demo cratic candidate for congress for the Twentieth eiistrict and the protege of Mayor Johnson, is out with the state ment that he will attend White House receptions, but not in full dress.

PENSIOTCLIRKS" VEXED Many of Employees Keal Angry at Commissioner Ware. New York, Oct. 23. A special to the World from Washington says: A large proportion of the 1.700 clerks employed in the pension bureau are dis gruntled because of the bulletin issued last week by Commissioner Ware com mending a clerk lor not taking annual or sick leave. The employes all feel that as the an nual leave is given to them by law they are entitled to it. The dissatisfaction aroused by Com missioner Ware's action is intensified by the fact that the clerk who received the commendation is a Democrat and has served in the bureau but about five years. Many of the employes feel that if the commissioner considered it was necessary to issue such a bulletin a good Republican might easily have been found to be thus honored. SHOT STAGE VILLAIN.

Negro Messenger Attributes It to the ' Eclipso of the Moon. Washington, Oct. 23. To some peculiar and inexplicable lunar phenomenon ac companying the total eclipse of the moon, Howard Merriman, the aged negro mes senger of the treasury department press room, attributes the recovery of his voice. For months past Merriman has been hard- J wife whose efforts to have herself the fam - - - ly able to make himself heard in a whis per, his vocal cords apparently being par alyzed. But the next morning after the eclipse, when he reported for work, he greeted his chief in a clear, strong, youth ful voice- , Merriman solemnly and ser iously asserted that during the eclipse he found his voice changing, and when the moon had passed out of the earth's shadow his voice was as clear and as strong as In the days of the reconstruction period fol lowing the war, when he was a sheriff in lower Mississippi and aided in running down members of the infamous Ku-Klux Klan.

Mr. Hanbury, presi dent of the board of agriculture, reply ing to the deputation which waited upon him today to reciuest him to open Brit ish oorts to the importation of live cat tle from Argentina, refused to do so un til he was satisfied that no cattle dis ease existed in Argentina and that the Argentine government was taking prop er steps to prevent the spread of the disease in Argentina. The deputation pointed out that the Australian supplies were at their lowest ebb because of prolonged droutns in Australia, while the shipments of frozen meat from the United States had con siderably fallen off owing to the short supply. Traders, they added, were now compelled to pay 75 to 100 per cent, more for frozen meat than at the same time last year. The only hope of relief was the readmission of live cattle from Ar gentina. Mr. Hanbury admitted that it was his personal belief that Argentine was at present free from cattle disease, but he was not satisfied that the government of Argentina had taken the pracaution to prevent its reintroduction. He was pressing Argentina to adopt regulations similar to the British. Meantime Ar gentina was supplying more frozen beef and mutton than ever before, and if the importation of live cattle from that country was allowed the dead meat im ports would necessarily fall off propor tionately.
