5 WHATSTHE SCORE Same Old Story Orioles 10 and Saints 4. Topeka Plajei! Listless and Stupid Ball. HUGHES HIT HARD. Premier Pitcher Was in Very Bad Form. Ileary grounds Gare Little Op portunity for Brilliant Plays. "Who Is running this thing anyway." asked one fan in tones of deepest dls gust on Thursday afternoon as he watched the Leavenworth Orioles choke the Saints into insensibility and ram 10 to 4 score down their throats. On, It's Just running itself," hopelessly re marked his neighbor. And that tells the story. Like all the rest of the trouncings. it was only more to add to the list under the caption "No manage ment." and its side-kicker ' Bum flay ing." teaven worth Didn't Wake Up to Go to the Grounds Till 4 P. M: Tom Hughes. Topeka's premier pitch r occupied the middle place, and his reputation had all its shingles knocked oft and a. part of the foundation caved In. Fifteen times did the Convicts clam his pills over the mountains and far away and fractured the horizon shamelessly. But it wasn't all the ex iPirate's fault. He went into the box complaining of a. wrenched back and was not In condition to work. In the first two Innings five hits were meas ured off his work and that should have opened the optics of a blind, lame and raralyied man. Hughes should have been taken out out out. But instead of that Captain Schrant calmly played on at first base, and President Sheard, who in reality does the managing, kept his seat In the grandstand. And the rest of the team took the cue and play ed like a lot of hobbled cows. The To peka baseball association is simply ask ing too much of the fans to stand by such an aggregation. And it must be remembered that not all the criticism must be dealt to the players. The man ngement ought to have its share and a whole lot thrown in roc good raeas nre . .... ... . . Xr Schrant Has a Little Trouble at First Base. White, Topeka's new acquisition for the second bag. joined the squad at the game and delivered the goods. He was responsible for three runs. In the sixth Freil made his way to first on a single and vv hlte whizzed out a two-bagger. Then In the eighth after Shinner had walked, and Cole and Freil hit. White rapped out a single and scored two runs, and let in Freil by bluffing an attempt to steal second. He had no chances at fielding. But at the stick three good ones were registered for him. He was the only bright spot in the firmament. Hughes fielded as though be was sick. Freil made three errors at third and no more need be said. Catcher Corr is Anxious to Bat. - Hitter was in the box for the Con victs. Eleven hits were registered off his whip but none claimed relationship tave in the sixth and eighth inning.-. He is a heady fellow and takes his time, which makes him a good slabman. The grandstand hooted him mercilessly for his molasses and fly-paper gait, but he won his f.ame and that is what counts. "Lucky Bill Rapps from Pap pysville" was on hand as usual in the sun garden and appeared in a stellar role. In fielding, batting and rag chew ing. He made one pretty a la Bevis capture in the sixth inning, the ball going foul and close to the fence. At the bat he made an average of l.OOu, Retting three hits out of as many times up. At talking he ruined the English language and had a good start on Chi nese.

I'D to the eighth Inning Sedalia and Fort Scott put ud one of the best games of the season on the local diamond. The score had been close all through, but the visitors had kept up a continual round of complaint on t'mpire Cusack's decisions. In the eighth Inning Sedalia scored, breaking a tie. and In the latter half the locals filled the bases onbunch ed hits. Jones followed with a fly to left field, good for three bases, cleaning up the bases. Sedalia claimed It was foul, and Rohn was put out of the game. McDill took up the right, and he. too. was put out. Hutter had been knocked out of the box and only eight men remained .and the game was for feited to Fort Scott, 9 to 0. Score bv innings: R.H.E.

J. Bryan's plan for the reformation of Democracy is out. In it Mr. Bryan favors radical changes and a depar ture from conservative lines, but ad vocates the election of Judge Parker for president as a. good beginning. He declares for state ownership of rail roads, government control of tele graph, abolishment of private mo nopoly, the income tax and the elec tion of federal judges by the people. Mr. Bryan says in part: "My selection as standard bearer of the Democratic party in 1896 and again in 1900 made me the nominal leader of that party, and as such I did not feel at liberty to engraft new doctrines upon the party creed. I contented myself with the defense of those principles and policies which were embodied in the platform. "Now that the leadership devolves upon another and I bear only the .esponsibility that each citizen must oear, namely, responsibility for my wn opinion, my utterances and my conduct, I am free to undertake a vork which until now I have avoid ed, namely, the work of organizing he radical and progressive element in the Democratic party. "Tne money Question is for the present in abeyance. The increased production of gold has lessened the strain upon the dollar, and while bi metallism is as sound in theory as it ever was the necessity for it is not so apparent- "But while the people can not be brought at this time to consider the various phases of the money ques tion, they can be brought to consider certain other questions with which the Democrat party must deal. 1 have heretofore refused to take a position upon the question of govern ment ownership of railroads, first, be cause I had not until recently studied the subject, and secondly, because the question had not been reached. "Recent events have convinced me that the time is now ripe for the pre sentation of the question. Consolida tion after consolidation has , taken place until a few men now control the railroad traffic of the country and defy both the legislative and executive power of the nation. I invite the Democrats therefore to consider a plan for the government ownership and operation of the railroads. The plan usually suggested is for the purchase of these roads by the federal government. This plan, it seems to me, is more objectionable than a plan which involves the owner ship and operation of these roads by the several states. To put the rail roads in the hands of the federal gov ernment would mean an enormous centralization of power. It would give to the federal government a largely increased influence over the citizen and the citizen's affairs, and such centralization is not at all neces sary. The states can own and oper ate ranroaas witmn their boi tiers just as effectively as It can be done by the federal government, and if it is done by the states the objection based upon the fear of centralization is entirely answered. A board com posed of representatives from various states could deal with interstate traf fic of the various lines. If the federal government had the railroads to buy there would be a constant warring between different sections to secure a fair share of the new building and development, but where this is left to the state the people can decide what railroad they desire to build or to buy. "While the Democratic party in the nation is advocating the government ownership of railroads, the Democrat party in the cities should upon the same theory espouse the cause of mu nicipal ownership of municipal fran chises. "We have also reached a time when the' postoffice department should em brace a telegraph system as well as a mail system. While the telegraph lines do not Teach as many people as the railroads do, and while the abuses of private ownership have not been so open and notorious, yet there is no reason why this nation should not do what other nations are doing in this respect. "The private monopoly must be destroyed. The Democratic platform adopted at Kansas City declared the private monopoly to be indefensibit and intolerable. "The Democratic party has in two campaigns stood for an income tax. The plank was omitted this year be cause the men in control of the party thought it would jeopardize success in eastern states. This objection may have weight when the appeal is made to a particular section and the wealthy men of that section, but it can not have weight when the party goes forth as it must ultimately do to appeal to the masses. "The contest above outlined must be made whether the party wins in November or not. A single election is but an incident in the life of a party. For more than a century the Democratic party has stood forth as the representative of certain great ideas. Jefferson founded it, Jackson defended it, and even Cleveland could not destroy it. If Mr. Parker is elect ed, his administration will rid us of Imperialism and of the threat of a race issue and give us greater freedom in the taking up of economic questions." WHERE FAIR FAILS. Discovery Is Made That It Is Not Properly Advertised. Pioneer Merchant Retires. Blue Rapids, Kan., July 22. A. E. Sweetland has sold his stock of gen eral merchandise to T. H. Eaves of Washington. Kan. Mr. Sweetland has been in business here a little over 32 years, more than half of his lifetime, and was one of the oldest men in his line of business in Marshall county. ITOXIIA. t The Kind Yot Havg Always Bought 5 C3 Bean the Sigsatnra of Be tto The Kind You Have Always Bosght OASTORIA Bear th ) The Kind Yon Have Always Bought Signature of St. Louis, July 22. Because they be lieve the fair is not being properly ex ploited by the press in this and other countries, the national commission has caused a letter to be addressed to President Francis of the exposition. The letter is signed by Thomas H. Car ter, president of the commission and says: "I respectfully call your attention to the apparent need for an extension and enlargement of the publicity feature of the exposition within the range of the general circulation of the papers pub lished in this city. All features of the fair have been made known, but unhap pily, the journals of this city, like those of all other cities, enjoy general circu lation only in limited area. Beyond the line of the special influence of the local press the extensive proportions and in teresting details of the fair do not appear to the commission to have been known to the general public to the extent or in the manner calculated to inspire the interest and secure the at tendance warranted by the extra mer its of the great educational force here installed. In the opinion of the com mission this delinquency does not arise from any lack of devotion to the public welfare by the press of the country at large. "The buildings are completed, the ex hibits are installed and the exposition has been in progress for substantially three months of its allotted period. The faith of the management in the merits of the exposition has been justified by the approving judgment of all who have entered the gates, but the daily at tendance has been far short of what it should be from any point of view. "Unhappily the magnificent propor tion and numberless attractions of the exposition do not seem to be fully un derstood by the masses of the people throughout the United States, whence attendance must be chiefly expected. The result obtained from the territory commanded by the press of St. Louis warrants the belief that the unsatisfac tory conditions prevailing would be overcome if the country at large could be adequately advised of what is to be seen, learned and enjoyed within these grounds. "The -newspapers of the respective states will, without doubt, cheerfully give space to descriptive matter direct ly relating to the exhibits and achieve ments of their readers. . "The exposition company could well afford to aid and assist in the prepara tion of descriptive matter accompanied by plate matter relating to different lo calities because it is evident that crea tion of interest in any locality will .con tribute to the general purpose. But it is not the intention to here attempt to detail the many ways of securing pub licity which would undoubtedly evolve from a general conference by representa tives of all the interested forces. "It is far from the intention of the commission to interfere with the oper ation of any of your matured plans; but it is respectfully submitted that the failure of expected and necessary at tendance at. the exposition is a matter of such supreme importance as to com mand every available force in directing the attention of the people of the whole country to the attractions and merits of the exposition. "Should it comport with your Judg ment to call the conference suggested the national commission will be pleased to co-operate with you." LOSS IS NOT LARGE. BLEW UP AT SEA. Ship Loaded With 450,000 Gallons of Oil Catches I'ire. E. Junkia Says Wheat In Ills County Isn't Badly Damaged. J. E. Junkin, editor of the Sterling Bulletin, who was in Topeka to at tend the meeting of the Republican state committee, says that the wheat loss in his section will not be as great as was at first anticipated. "The farmers have got their wheat about all up around Sterling," he said. "It has stood up wonderfully well and very little of it shelled. I don't think the entire loss will exceed 10 per cent. In the north part of the county the harvesting has not progressed so rapidly, and the farmers there will be harvesting until the first of August. The soil in that region is heavy, and while it is dry on top it is wet beneath, and every little while it is necessary to dig a horse or a machine out of the mire. It has been my experience that a farmer is generally pretty badly scared and thinks everything is going to the dogs untii he gets his wheat put up, but after that he thinks the crop was about right."

Sebastopol, July 22. Captain Glo toff, commander of a torpedo boat de stroyer anchored ir. the roadstead here, jumped overboard during a storm today to save a man whose boat had been swamped. Glotoff succeeded in bringing the man to the side of the destroyer and he was taken aboard, but the captain himself sank exhaust ed and was drowned. New York. July 22. Captain John Humphries and the rescued members of the crew of the Creedmoor have arrived in this city. The Creedmoor left this port on Monday with a cargo of 450,000 gallons of naphtha, gasoline and ben zine for Liverpool. On Wednesday evening fire broke out on the poop deck Just forward of the main saloon. When the alarm was given. Captain Humph ries put the vessel about while the members of the crtw under Mate Ad ams were doing their best to hold the flames in check. After about an hour's work the crews seemed to have the fire in check and at that time the Creed moor was making for New York at good speed. A little after 10 p. m. the fire made its appearance on the poop deck section and this time the gasoline had becom? ignited and it was expected the oil laden ship would blow up at any moment. The lifeboats and the ship's yawl Were lowered: the lookout on the forecastle, a Portuguese sailor named Mara, was called with the other members of the crew but he did not respond. In a few minutes the ship was wrecked from stern to stern by heavy explosions. The boats drifted nearly three hours before the schooner Jos. B. Thomas of Thomaston, Maine, picked the men up.
