SHE 'TOPEKA DAILY STATS JOIFSU AS MONDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER "19, 1906.
S!1017EDTIEL UP .Washburn Made a Spectacle of St. Marjs Football Team. Tope k a Eleven Amassed a Score of 12 to 0. ; ''VISITORS WERE SCARED Seemed to He Afflicted With Case of Stage Fright. Ought to Settle 'the Claims of Fairmount to Championship. The result of the game between St. Mary's and Washburn last Saturday afternoon at Washburn park, was a . one-sided s..cre in favor of Washburn of 42 to 0. the largest whien the Wash burn team has 'succeeded in piling up this season. The game was a surprise to the To pe ka people who had expected Qu!g ley's men to put up a fast same against Warhbum. Prom the very first of. the game, however, the Caiholics did not come up to expectations. This is the second eame which the St. Mary's -team has played away from home this season and it is probably due a great deal to stage fright that the team was to badly defeated. Nearly ail the men on the St. Mary's team are young and inexperienced. Very few men on the team have attained the age of 20 as yet. The St. Mary's team was clearly out classed from "the first. This was es pecially noticeable on ihe defense. Con t ; a t v to their visual custom Washburn relied upon tackle swings tor most of the gains. The Catholic? were unpre- pared for this kind of a same 'as is Known by the fact that they piayed a single line defense throughout the en tire game. The Washburn team was supeior in weip-ht and the blue line was able to stop mof t o the plays of the Catholics. The St. Mary's team showed several good offensive plays ' but on account -f the fast work of the Washburn ends and the stiff de fense of tne blue ihey were unable to get them off with any regularity. On . nearly every occasion the Catholics , were "forced to punt and in the punting due! Millice had a wide margin over Dillon. The Washburn team entered into the frame, with better, spirit than at any previous time this season, not even ex cepting the K. U. game. The team work was also of the Kilt edged vari ety and eleven men figured in every play. The work of Williams was the feature of the game. Williams' TO yard return of a kkkoff was the most , bril liant work of the game. Johnston also played a great game. His 45 yard buck through the line for a touchdown took all soirit out of St. Mary's team. For the Catholics, Walter Walsh was the star of the p.?. His tackling wa3 the best on the St. Mary's team and he was the only one on the team who made any sains at all against the Washburn team. Hendrix also piayed a hard game and was taken out in the eeoend half because of injuries. From a Washburn standpoint this frame is considered a sweet revenge for Fairmount. It ras the Fairmount team which piayed Washburn a couple weeks iro and on a disputed decision of the referee got away with, the psme in ri very sqneery manner. St.. Mary's was the only team which has been able to defeat Fairmount and they accomplish ed this by a score of 6 to 0. St. Mary's was in better form last Saturday than fit any previous time in the season and Washburn's defeat by a score cf 42 to 0, places the Fairmount bunch, which is still claiming the state champion ship without having: played Kansas un iversity, about 50 degrees below the Washburn team. The game while very spectacular and filled with brilliant work by the Wash burn team was filled with penalties. Both teams were penalized repeatedly because of offside playing. The only time in the game in which St. Mary's really showed much form was in the second half when with a Peri ?s of. quarterback kicks ancr quar terback runs they carried the ball 32 yards without losing possession. During the game Washburn made 29 first downs and St. Mary's 13. Wash burn gained 7S9 yard3 while St. Marv's advanced the ball 13S. In punting, Mil-lie- punted nine time? for 267 yards which averages nearly 41 yards per punt. Dillon punted 257 yards which gives him 32 yards for each punt. Coach Ernest Quigley of St. Mary's said after the game: "The game in every department was the biggest disappointment to me. The St. Mary's boys displayed the poorest form I have ever seen a college team show with the possible exception of Kansas university at St. Louis. "Washburn's touchdown coming as it did so soon in the game took all the heart out of the Catholics, they ap parently not being prepared for such a .poor showing on their part, then too the three first plays used by St. Mary's , was ail 'balled up.' "I have no excuses to make except that their playing might be attributed to the fact that they were away from home, yet they held K. 1". to IS points on McCook field about six weeks ago. During the last five minutes of the first half, when they carried tht ball about seventy yards on onside kicks only to lose it, was the only time during the entire game they showed any form.

There was not a crip ple in, the lineap, -neither was there any doubt but what the eleven men who went against Washburn would be and were in the pink of condition. Then too the team with the.exccption of Captain Hughes and ilalf back. Barns were all first year men. "Taking into consideration that we have defeated Cooper, college, Wes- leyan university, Midland college. K.an sas City Medics by such, decisive scores and then too being the only school ii! the southwest to defeat the heavj 'Whcatshockers' from Fairmount, hav ing won from them by a. 6 to 0 score, only tends to prove what a rank dis appointment the piaying of the team was on Saturday.

In a game full of spectacular football, but slightly marred by wrangling and poor work by the officials, the Kansas City Athletic club defeated the Chilocco Indians at Association park Saturday afternoon by a score of 5 to 0. The much touted Chilocco team was lighter than the Athletics, but their fighting spirit and splendid defensive work enabled them to pvi'.l out of dangerous spots and to held the Athletics to one lonesome touchdown. The. Chilocco team had been advertised as being' loaded for this game with Ha?ke!l stars. It developed that Oliver and Dugan on the Chilocco team were brothers of the famous Haskell players! With the exception of "Stub" Felix, the Haskell veteran, who was picked up at Lawrence by the Chilocco team, the Indians were all young bucks who had not had more than two years of experience on the gridiron.

In an" ex citing and well attended basketball game between the Eskridge and Har veyviile high school girls at the Esk ridge grounds Saturday afternoon the Harveyviile girls scored 9 to 8. The features of the game were the throw ing of a field goal by Miss Fields, and the rapid playing of the Misses Lee and Grissinger, though the whole team is strong. Much praise is given the Esk ridge girls for good work and fine treatment of the visitors. Chicago 63, Illinois 0. Chicago, Nov. 19. Chicago's football eleven gave Illinois the worst drubbing it ever received Saturday afternoon, the Maroons running up 63 points and keeping Illinois from crossing their goal on the one lonesome chance the state institution players had to score. Ten touchdowns were made by Chicago, nine of the goals being kicked, while Eckcrsall helped along the slaughter by dropping a field goal from the 20-yard line. Illinois, badly crippled from the first by the. absence of Captain -Car-orthers, and with a number of other players in poor condition, sent in sub stitute after substitute as the regular men were injured or exhausted, but could not stop the scoring, and in the latter part of the second half the game was almost a farce. Chicago used the forward pass repeatedly, generally with success. State Normal 6, College of Emporia 4. Emporia, Kan., Nov. 19. One" of the most hotly contested football games seen in Emporia this year took place Sa-turday afternoon when the State Normal won from the College of Emporia by a score of 6 to 4. The Normals won in the last three minutes of play by scoring a touchdown and kicking a goal. Neither side scored in the first half. Two min utes after the second half started Culbert son for the college kicked a fit id goal. The Presbyterian bovs were at least ten pounds to the man lighter than the teach ers, but notwithstanding the great dif ference in weight: the college put up much the better frame.

Enterprise More Remarkable Than Crossing Sierra Jladre. ROAD IS INDEPENDENT. Stilwell Sees 6,000 Capitalists 3,500 Now Stockholders. Gossip and Matters of Interest in .Railroad Circles. Recently the surveys for the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient railway through the Sierra Madre mountains in Mexico were concluded and" it was proved that the tracks of the new railway could be laid on grades not exceeding 2 per cent at any point. The feat was declared impossible by many railroad men, and the least skeptical asserted that a pass ageway across these mountains would necessitate surmounting grades of at least 14 per cent. "The successful accomplishment of this undertaking may seem worthy of some praise," said A. E. Stilwell, pres ident of the Orient road, "but I will tell you of a more remarkable enter prise that has succeeded. This road is being built without one cent of aid from Wall Street or any of the great finan cial institutions of the east, something heretofore unheard of in railroad an nals." Mr. Stilwell has Just returned from Europe, where, in England and Hol land, there are many capitalists inter ested in the Orient project. As a re sult of the trip, he says, many new names have been added to the list of stockholders in the enterprise. "Consider what it means to under take the construction of a great trans continental line, 1.S59 miles in length, with no funds or backing of any sort except from private individuals," con tinued Mr. Stilwell. "Thirteen million dollars already expended, les3 than ons million in bonds issued, and plenty of means In sight to complete the road. To accomplish this it has been neces sary to see personally 6,000 men of means and convince them of the merit of our undertaking. The result is that the Orient is owned by the people, and not by Wall Street. Of the 6,000 capi talists seen 3,500 are now stockholders. More than 1,400 of them are residents of the United States." 'Mr. Stilwell says that all formidable problems' of construction h3d been solved with the successful crossing of the Sierra Madre mountains, and that practically all of the force of surveyors and engineers had been discharged. "The road is staked for its entire length," he said, "and the rails are be ing laid as rapidly as possible. Our right of way is paid for with the ex ception of less than ten per cent, and there is nothing to interfere with steady progress. There are now 625 miles of finished road in operation, and 420 miles are graded and ready to receive the rails.

Chocago, Nov. 19. Chicago still con tinues to be the greatest railroad center In the world. Twenty-five systems, op erating 5O.000 miles of road, converge here. They bring to and take from this city tens of thousands of passengers and hun dreds of thousands of tons of freight ev ery day in the year. In comparison with the total business transacted, that at New York, London, Paris, Berlin and other big cities shrinks into insignificance. Fifteen hundred and thirty-seven trains passenger, mail and freight are sched uled regularly to arrive and depart daily. They serve to swell the business trans acted in this city to an enormous extent. Assuming that the average train is 600 feet long, these daily trains would cover a distance of 145 miles if placed end to end In a continuous line. These figures include only the steam railroads. . They take no account whatever of the num erous electric lines and other transpor tation facilities which the city possesses. Oklahoma Broom Corn. The Santa Fe is hauling out of Okla homa every day fifteen to twenty cars of broom corn. The shipments go all the way east ito New York, Pennsyl vania and New England, as far west as Oregon, and northeast to New Brunswick and Ontario. The broom factories in Kansas and Nebraska receive quite a large share of the output. Ten chances to one it is a whisk broom made from the Oklahoma pro duct, that you are brushed down with when 'traveling anywhere in the United States and Canada, for the Oklahoma variety is much sought after because of its "many fine qualities. Santa Fe Rouble Track. If enough men and material can be secured, the Santa Fe management ex pect to have nearly the entire line be tween Chicago and Kansas City double tracked by the end of 190S. When completed it will greatly aid the prompt handling of the immense traffic that is poured inito this wrist of the Santa Fa hand that now covers nearly all of the southwest country. About one-thIrd of the line east of Kansas City already has two track fa cilities. There Is also a double line of rails west of Kansas City on the Santa Fe as far as Newton. Southern California Fast Mail. The Santa Fe California Limited (No. 3) Is carrying heavier mails than ever between Kansas City and Los An geles, and is showing a fine record for "on time" arrival at Los Angeles. The postofflce department is arranging with the company to increase the dis tributing facilities on this train from Albuquerque west. Change la Not Contemplated. The statement that Thos. J. Pargen h".d been appointed roadmaster of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific at Her ington. Kan., was incorrect and we are officially informed that, no such change is contemplated.
