Tire KITCHEX NOT READY
Real Cause of the Prison Change De
lay at Leavenworth.
Fort Leavenworth, Kan., Jan. 1 The
transfer of the old United States peni
tentiary, within the garrison proper in
Fort Leavenworth, to the military au
thorities probably will be February 1.
Is was planned to hove the formal
transfer January L " TThpTIn ited States
penitentiary officiate".! that it will
crowd them closely-to make the change
in another month. So far the only
progress towards effecting the transfer
has been the appointment of -Major R.
W. McClaughry to reprerent the de
partment of justice, and Major G. S.
Young to represent the war department,
to arrange to invoice and agree upon a
division of property and to recommend
plans for the transfer.. Major Mc
Claughry is warden of the United States
penitentiary, and Major Young will be
commandant of the new military prison.
In addition to this the war department
has designated General Bell. General
Ainsworth and General Davis as the
three commissioners to represent the
military as prison directors. The two
civilian commissioners, of whom it is
likely Major McClaughry will be one,
will be named later.
The delay in making the transfer is
due to the fact. that the kitchen at the
new United States penitentiary is not
ready. All other arrangements for the
transfer are practically completed at the
new civil penitentiary. Another reason
for the delay is that there is no provis
ion for organizing an official force in
the new prison.
It is expected that when the change
Is finally made that from 2'X) to 300 long
term general prisoners confined iii
, gruard houses will be brought in. It is
doubtful if any prisoners now in the
United States penitentiary will be trans
ferred. A force of more than 500 pris
oners will be in confinement within a
year. The old military prison was
abandoned July 1, 1S95. A bill passed
congress to abandon it in order to
change to a civil penitentiary. There
were fr,0 prisoners in confinement. They
were all pardoned out w ithin a period of
five months.

WHISKY EVKKY 30 MINUTES.
How Young Whilte, the Englishman,
Left for Garden City.
Kansas ' City. Jan. 1. Byron R.
White, the young Englishman who
ssays he was robbed of $4,375 on a Wa
bash tram between Detroit and Kan
sas City Wednesday night, has left for
Garden City, Kan. He rode to the
union depot in the patrol wagon.
White came to Kansas City Thurs
day night and has been staying at the
Midland hotel. Friday he told the po
lice of the robbery and said that he
was the son of an English peer. He
was on the way to Garden City, he
said, to undergo treatment for the
liquor habit.
Saturday afternoon Chief Hayes re
received a telegram from E. L. Wirt
of Garden City asking him to furnish
White with transportation to that
place. The dispatch said that money
would be forwarded to pay for the
ticket and til's expenses of the trip.
About 3 o'clock the chief obtained the
ticket and sent an officer to bring
White to police headquarters. He
found the Englishman under the in
iiuence of liquor in the Turkish bath
at the Midland.
"You will have to give me whisky
every few minutes," said White at po
lice headquarters. "If you don't I
may go crazy."
Then the Englishman sat down in a
chair and went to sleep. A bottle of
rye whisky was obtained and every
thirty minutes White was aroused and
given a drink until 8:30 o'clock, when
he was led to the patrol wagon at the
police station and taken to the union
depot. ' He was accompanied to the
depot by Ben Sanderson, a patrolman,
who purchased a sleeping car ticket
for White, placed him on the train,
gave instructions to the conductor to
watch) him and put him off at Garden
City.
"If you think he needs whisky give
him a drink from this bottle," was the
parting advice of the officer to the
conductor as he handed him a bottle
which he had broughft from police
headquarters.

Junction City, Kan., Jan. 1. Work of
drilling wells here in prosnecting for oil
or gas is being abandoned and the cas
ing is now being pulled out of the last
well, which is 1.930 feet deep. It was

produced any oil. The oil was in such a
small quantity, however, as to be very
far from a paying proposition.

CONFER AT BUFFALO.
Chances Are That JKube Will
Change His Residence.
Ban Johnson Names a List of
His New Umpires.
Buffalo, N. Y., Jan. 1. After a
lengthy conference here between Capt.
Jimmy Collins of the Boston Ameri
cans, Connie Mack of Philadelphia,
and President Ban Johnson it became
known that Collins was anxious to se
cure the service of eccentric Rube
Waddell, and further, it may be said
the prospects of Waddell playing with
Boston are bright.
The conference was arranged at
short notice. President Johnson and
Mack left Chicago for Philadelphia
Saturday. They wired Capt. Collins,
who met them on their arrival here.
President Johnson said:
"I did not take much of a part, in
the conference. I left it all to Jimmie
and Connie. I will say, though, I be
lieve Pat Powers will be re-elected
president of the National Association
of Baseball clubs. ; " '
"I have selected the 'following 'men
to umpire for me during 1906: . Sheri;
dan, Buck Connolly; Siljc G'Laughlin,
Tim Hurst, Connors, Evans of Youngs
town, and Conihan, who umpired in
the New Y'ork State league."
Both Capt. Collins and the Quaker
magnate were inclined not to talk
about the reported transfer of Waddell.
Both Collins and Johnson denied
there was any trouble between the
Boston manager and President H. I.
Taylor of the club. It was thought
Mack and Johnson might have come
here to patch up the alleged trouble,
but all three said everything in the
Boston camp was harmonious. -, - i
A GREAT FOOTBALL GAME.
Clianute and La Harpe Elevens Cora
lKsed of Stars. '
Chanute, Kan., Jan.. 1. The higgest
football game of the year for Kansas,
outside of the cehgiate games, will be
played at Chanute today between Cha
nute and La Harpe. The town cha.m-:
pionship of the state is at stake and
the game will be the hardest fought
contest the state has seen for a number
of years. It is probable that a bigger
aggregation of football stars was never
before arrayed against each other in the
west.
The fame of the old La Harpe team is
well known. Under skillful coach
ing an almost invincible team was or
ganized which defeated every
team the year it . was organized,
including the Haskell Indians. Some
very strong .players were developed, in
cluding such men as Donald, .the new,
captain of the Kansas university team
for the coming year, who made such a
sensational showing in the Kansas-Missouri
game Thanksgiving day, and who
will be in the La Harpe lineup in the
contest today. Another star player on
the La Harpe team will be DeSaulles,
the well known all-American quarter
back, who will play at his old place.
Another star of the same magnitude
who. will probably play is Campbell,
who was end on the ail-American team
for three years. In addition to these
players, several of the best players of
the Iola high school team, which won
the state championship this year, will
be in the game with. La.Harpe, includ
ing Atchison, fullback, and Allen, . end
man, two young players of great prom
ise. The Chanute team has claimed the

OKLAHOMA CITY'S PLANS. - .
Manager Barnes to Have New Ball
Park and a Big League Pitcher.: .
Oklahoma City, O. T., Jan. -1. Man
ager Gene Barnes, of the Oklahoma City
Baseball association, is in communica
tion with Dr. C. F. Reising, of Caldwell,
O., regarding the captaincy of the team
for the coming season. Reising is one"
of the big league pitchers, having sign
ed with Brooklyn, but it is said he
jumped the team and has for the past
season played outlaw ball. He . is a
good batter and his box work ranks
with the best. If his standing with the
Brooklyn team can be reconciled it is
possible that he will be secured to cap
tain the Oklahoma City team next year.
Manager Barnes will in a few days close
a contract for the making of an entire
new park and which when completed
will be one of the finest in the south
west. A grandstand with a seating ca
pacity of 2,500 will be erected. A
half mile bicycle track, tennis court,
football ground and everything required
in a first class athletic, park will be
included in the enterprise. This will be
finished for the beginning of the base
ball season.
SHE IS AFRAID OF BOB.
Mrs. Fitzsimmons Lives in Dread of
Her Husband's Arrival.
Sioux Falls, S. D., Jan. 1. Mrs.
Robert Fitzsimmons lives in fear of
death at the hands of her pugilist hus
band. "In spite of Bob's cruel treatment of
me, I know he still dearly loves me in
his rough way, and this makes me fear
sometimes for my safety should he de
cide to come to Sioux Falls," said the
runaway wife. "He appears to be al
most insane over me and because of
this, should he become fully convinced
that he is to lose me through the divorce
courts of South Dakota, I hardly know
what may happen."
Mrs. Fitzsimmons' manner when she
said this indicated that she was very
much frightened at the prospect of her
prize fighter husband following her to
Sioux Falls.

A GIANT FOR CHICAGO.
Freshman Roy Maddiiran Weighs 203
Pounds, Is Over 6 Foot,
i Chicago, Jan. . 1. Coach Stagg re
ceived many presents in his stocking
when he hung it up Christmas eve at
the home of his parents at Orange, Ni
J. There were football pictures, sweat
ers, caps, handkerchiefs, notes of greet
ing, end many other tokens. But per
haps the token he valued most was a
little note from Dr. J. K. Raycroft that
Roy J. jUaddigan, the prize of the year's
athletic acquisitions, would enter the
University of Chicago January 2.'
Maddigan is the biggest man that has
entered the university since the days of
"Fat" Maxwell, now an athletic hero at
Swarthmore. Like Maxwell. Maddigan
came from the Englewood high school,
but unlike "Bobby" he is not overbur
dened with portliness or obesity. In his
present condition Maddigan weighs lo
pounds and stands, in his bare feet, 6
feet 4 inches. He ' only 18 years old.
In the last six months he has gained
eighteen pounds, due to roughing it on
a farm, he declares. He expects to.put
on fifteen or twenty more pounds, which
will bring him up close to the 22.r-pound
mark. It is predicted by University of
Chicago athletic officials that he will
prove the most ideally built athlete of
the west.

Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 1. After four
weeks of competition the horsemen at
Ascot have failed to dislodge S. M. Wil

Borghesi, Bearcatcher, Silver Sue, Mem
ories and Good Luck. This latter colt,
from the stable of Tichenor & Co., has
won all five of his starts here, and at
no time has he been fully extended,
having beaten all the good 2-year-olds
with apparent ease.
In the jockey division Miller and
Dugan are having a battle royal for

FIVE tm HELD.
For the Assassination of Former Gov
ernor Steunonbcrg. .'
Boise, Idaho, Jan. 1. A man has been
arrested at Caldwell whom the officers
believe is the assassin of ex-Governor
Frank Steunenberg. His name has not
been detained ou trivial charges in or
been detained one trivial charges in or
der that they may be investigated.
When daylight dawned on- the scene
of the tragedy it was found that the
dynamite had been exploded by pulling
a wire. Pieces of wire and waxed fish
line were found in the trees on -the
lawn. Further, it is believed that two
bombs were used, to make certain of
carrying out the purpose of the assas-.
sination. They seem to have been to
gether. Both were pulled at once.
The -explosive was placed against the
post against which the gate closed. It
was on the inside of the fence. That
post was on the victim's left as he en
tered, but the force of the . explosion
struck him on the right, showing that
he turned partly in closing the gate.
Had the mine been set to go off from
the movement of the gate, the explo
sion would have occurred as he went in.
Shoshone county has offered a reward
of $10.0000 for the capture of the mur
derers and has sent its sheriff to assist
in the search. It was in that county, in
the northern end of the state, that the
Coeur d'Alene riots occurred in 1S0!. It
is probable the funerp' will be in the
capital. The body probably will lie in
state in the capitol building.
