Cost of Sinking the Deep Shafts That
Are Now Necessary.
With increased and increasing de
mand for coal came the necessity for
opening our lower seams, and deeper
shafts meant heavier capital expendi
ture in colliery enterprise. It is worthy
of remark how little the outside public
realize of the great difficulties that of
ten have to be overcome in sinking
such as passing through water bearing
strata or running sands or of the enor
mous cost entailed by some colliery de
velopments. As early as 1820 John Buddie, In giv
ing evidence before the house of lords,
declared that the cost of sinking, even
hen, was frequently 10.000 to 15.000,
and J. T. Taylor stated before a select
committee on rating of mines in 18o7
that at Haswell colliery, in the county
of Durham, 40,000 was expended in
contending with a quicksand, and that
the shaft had ultimately to be abandon
ed. At Murton colliery, a few miles
distant from Haswell, 300,000 was ex
pended in sinking; the quantity of wa
ter pumped during the operation of
passing through the overlying magnes
ian limestone bed amounted to an av
erage of 9.306 gallons per minute, from
a depth of 640 feet: and the three shafts
ultimately reached the Hulton seam, at
a depth of 1.4SS feet from the surface,
n April, 1S43.
Many deep and costly sinkings sev
eral much deeper than In the last in
stance have been put down since the
Murton winning: but none, I believe, at
a greater expenditure of capital, owing
doubtless, to the greatly improved
methods now employed in carrying on
such operations through watery strata,
notably the Kind-Chaudron system,
whereby the shaft is bored out and the
side protected by metal cylinders lower
ed from the surface; and the Poetsch
or Goberat methods, whereby the wa
ter Is frozen in the "running" sand or
the other water-bearing stratum, and
the shaft sunk through the solid mass.

Honor of Setting New Auto Marks
Costs Millionaire $1,000 a Second.
New York, July 21. One thousand
dollars a second is about what it will
cost Alfred G. Vanderbllt for having
established a new automobiling record
for 20 miles on the Empire City track.
His 60 horse power machine, driven by
Chauffeur Paul Sartori, ran 20 miles
and lowered, the record from 25 minutes
2-5 seconds to 19 minutes 37 1-5 sec
onds, but in the act the $15,000 car was
nearly ruined. It will need a whole
new engine from Germany before it is
fit for service again.
New records were made by the van
derbilt car after it had won the 15 mile
free for all on the programme of events
postponed from Saturday because of
rain. The car won the race by nearly
mile and was then ahead of the rec
ords for that track and so close to the
world's record of 14 minutes 21 seconds
for 15 miles, made by Oldfleld at Den
ver last year that it was seen to he
could easily establish new records for
the fifteenth to twentieth mile to re
place figures that have been standing
to the credit of Henry Fournier since
1901, when he established the following
figures at Fort Erie: Sixteen miles,
20:24 4-5; 17 miles, 21:40 4-5; 18 miles,

cannot core. All they ask is a fair and

No other medicine than Dr. Pierce's Fa

They have the most remarkable record of
cures made by this world-famed remedy
ever placed to the credit of any prepara

After achieving , this Sartori started
the car in the jive mile handicap, but
naa to quit in the last mile, and it was
then found that the two front cylin
ders were broken and the crank case
ruined. Practically all that was left of
value was the running gear and body
and transmission gear. Sartori man
aged, however, to take the car home
under Its own power, running on two
cylinders. The damage is supposed to
have been caused by the water for the
cooling system giving out when the
machine was being driven the extra
five miles for records.
It was supposed to be the desire of
Mr. vanderbllt to have this car estab

or at least to break the record for the
Empire track of :55 4-o made by Old

ever, for when the ' time came for the
record trials after the races his car
was hors du combat. The nearest he
came to it in competition was a mile in

Beat Broomstick and Rose tint in a
Great Contest.
New York, July 2LWaterboy, the
champion of last year, won the fifth
race at Brighton beach defeating Rose
tint and Broomstick, the latter the
holder of the world's record of 2:02 4-5
for one mile and a quarter. Water
boy's victory aroused as much enthus
iasm as did Broomstick's nine days ago
when he won the Brighton handicap.
Broomstick was always a favorite,
closing at 4 to 5, while Waterboy, who
opened at 7 to 5, was pounded down
to 11 to 10, all the big plungers sending
big commissions into the ring. .
Broomstick showed in front as the
horses passed the stand for the first
time, but in making the paddock turn
Odom sent Waterboy Into the lead. In
the run down the' back stretch Water
boy was leading by a head from
Broomstick. Rounding tne far turn
Waterboy drew away and a great shout
went up from the stand as the black
horse took a commanding lead. In
the stretch Odom"was looking back at
the field and won easily by a length
and a half. Rosetint, who was running
easily, closed with a rush in the stretch
and beat the fast tiring Broomstick
for the place.
Lady Amelia, favorite, won the Glen
Cove Handicap by four lengths.
Edict Against Entries of Women
Chicago. July 21. The Chicago Jock
ey club has made a ruling that in the
future no married woman may enter a
horse in her name, but the entry must
be made in the name of her husband.
This ruling will bring to a close the
career of Mrs. R. Bradley, In whose
name Robert Waddell won the Ameri
can Derby. All of "Pa" Bradley's
horses are entered in the name of his
wife. Among the women who are
credited with running horses at the lo

Mrs. R. Bradley. . .Mrs. Hart Dern

Fred Palmer, manager of the Western
League at St. Joseph, Mo., in 1897, has
notified President Shtveley that he will
put a Valley League team in Kansas
City, Kan., in 1905 if the franchise is
granted him. Palmer Is an old experi
enced baseball man and knows the
business from A to Z. The Kansas side
of the big metropolis by the junction
of the Missouri and Kawls reckoned on
by baseball men as a good proposition
for the "Valley. The American Associa
tion is an unpopular institution in Kan
sas City. George Teb.eau owns it and
the team at Louisville, Ky., also. That
kind of baseball ownership never suit
ed anybody. While the Blues were
playing with the Colonels there on
Tuesday, one Kansas City fan remark
ed when asked about the result: "Oh,
it makes little difference. Tebeau
wins either way." That is Just about
the amount of spirit which the Kansas
Cityans have for their team. The
American Association is also getting
poor crowds. Palmer's request for .a
franchise will state that the park -will
be located in Kansas City, Kan. .where
there is -no professional team at-the
present time. It ought to be a good
thing. The wise ones are also saying
that St. Joe, Mo., will be in the Valley
circuit next year. The financial end of
it in the Josie town is getting a bad
black eye in the Western league, and
the baseball promoters there wish to
go into a league where the expenses are
less. The Jump to Denver costs money
in the Western league and has done
more to knock the wadding out of the
treasury of the clubs than anything
else. Lincoln is about ripe for profes
slonal baseball again and has been
making overtures to the Western league
for admission. But if Kansas City,
Kan., and St. Joe are secured, Lincoln
ould probably smile a good big smle
on a valley proposition, ine entry or
St. Joe and Lincoln are of course tine
tured with a good deal of conjecture,
yet the officers of the league seem to
have something up their sleeves on
that subject which they will not let go
of until the fall meeting. Some of the
cities in the present circuit will have
to be dropped. They would not be hard
to name. In fact this paper did name
them once, and they have not yet re
covered from having some one ten them
hat they look like. But "sufficient
unto the day," etc.
In the Spalding Baseball Guide for
this season, the name or frank .tteiiey.
secretary of the Topeka City Railway
company, appears as manager or tne
Topeka baseball team in the Valley
On next Sunday every person - who
buys a score card to the game at tne
new park will receive a picture of the
baseball team, printed on a giazea eara
board, size ten by eight. A charge of
ten cents will be made. The team had
its picture taken for that purpose on
Wednesday afternoon.
Manager Hurlburt has Informed his
Springfield team that he would fine
the first man $25 whom he catches
drinking liquor. The team played
dopey last Monday against Iola, and
the Midget manager suspected some
Lee Gramley, erstwhile of Wash
burn, caught at Sedalia while Stoner
was on the bench for talking. He Is
considered a good man in the cage,
Joe Roe, Nestor of the Valley
league and one of the fathers of the
Sedalia team, states that the fining
of Stoner was unjustifiable and that it
should have been put upon Manager
Dick Rohn. "Stoner," said Roe. "is
a hard worker. He tried to get Rohn
to ginger up the fellows, and when
the latter wouldn't do it, why he got
mad himself. And in my mind he
had a right to get sore."
Jake Bene has revived the old
champion Sporting News club and
will now manage them. Most of the
old faces of last year are back, and
Jake is out hot-foot after the flag of
honor tor isu4 ror the amateur
champions of the world's fair citv.
Some of the boys whom he brought
out here ror tne ort scott team are
again with him. They were alto
gether too slow for this league.
'I'm ready to help vote Fred
Hornaday and his Fort Scott bunch
out of the league any time," said
Shorty Hurlburt after he had asked
the Giants' manager for the release of
a player whom he has on the black
list and was refused. "I have helped
him in every way, and he won't do a
thing for me. I don t want to be In
the same league with him another
year. He am t doing us any good.
The syndicate which Is now run
ning the team at Pittsburg is already
calling "help." Its members want the
citizens of the Pirate town to get Into
their jeans and fatten up the ex
chequer. They reason that It will
take about 13,500 to run the club for
the rest of the year. Of that amount
$1,000 has been subscribed by ten
men. Adding to that the probable
gate receipts for the rest of the sum
mer a deficit will still be found.
Therefore another $1,000 must be
raised. There Is one comforting thing
about it, however, and that Is that ths
syndicate will keep the team In Pitts
burg for the rest of the year.
Rube Farrell, Just released from
Springfield, is pitching for the Spring
dale, Ark., club, and won his first
game the other day by a score of
15 to 0.
In the contract which Topeka and
Leavenworth signed up for the game
here next Sunday, the Saints' man
agement agreed to pay the fines of the
Orioles if any arrests are made for
playing baseball on Sunday. The
Leavenworth management refused to '
come here without the acceptance of
this clause in the contract.
