Bumors Floating Around That Santa Fe Has Bought It. Other Items of Interest to Railway People. Wellington, Kan., June 13 That the Santa Fe is preparing to put the Portales-Belen cutoff. Into service iu the near future is evidenced by the announcement from Woodward that a cors of serveyors has arrived there and commenced the preliminary work toward strengthening out the line on that division, reducing curves and grades, so that it will be able to han dle the heavy California traffic which will be sent that way as soon as the cutoff is put into operation. It is the intention to route . all of the heavy freight traffic and probably much of the through passenger traffic for Cali fornia that way, in order to avoid heavy grades on the Raton pass. The through California business will then run from Kansas City over .he Ottawa-Emporia cutoff to Emporia over the old main line to. Newton, south to Wichita, thence via Mulvane to Wellington and on west over the Southern Kansas and Pecos Valley lines to Portales. then on the new cut off to Belmont, where it strikes the main line aeain. The Dossibilitv of the Santa Fe pur chase of the Midland Valley is again beinsr discussed in the territories. It is known that the Santa Fe has made several efforts to buy . the Midland Vnllev. but was not quite willing to come up to the price aemanaea Dy me nresent owners of the road, and as a result will have to pay about $6,000,000 more for it than it would at an earlier date. A deal had been practically closed for its purchase at 815,000,000 when the Glenn oil pool was openea tin and a sour built from Jenks to tne heart of the field. As a result of the extra business caused by the opening up of that oil field, the- owners or tna Midland Valley have .advanced their nriee to t21.000.000 and that is the.iiK ure at which the Sartta Fe is- now atd to have made the purchase. It is claimed that the Santa r e also the purchaser - of the Arkansas Central and tho Dardanelle Ola - nnd Southern, two small Arkansas roads which have recently changed hands. The Midland Valley runs from Arkan sas Citv. Kansas, to Fort smitn, at kansas, and the purchase of the two da mentioned would enable it to run on from Fort Smith to Little Rock. IMPORTANT QUESTIONS. They Will Be Raised In Fight on Nebraska Two-Cent Fare. In the contest begun by the Union Pa cific against the enforcement of the- 5- cent maximum passenger -ra;te law. in Nebraska, the question of federal and state Jurisdiction is likely , to be made a conspicuous feature of the controversy In such a way as tor lead to a judicial pronouncement on the respective rights of each. John N. Baldwin, general so licitor for the. Union Pacific, has inti mated his Intention of making this point a conspicuous feature of his attack on the enforcement of the new state law. Another Important element In the at tack will be an attempt to overthrow the greatly exploited idea that the re duction of rates will so. increase-travel that the roads will be 'gainers, rather than losers, by the .new law. The ex perience In thickly settled territory in the east, as well as In the more sparse ly populated regions of the west, will be cited to emphasize thla point. System atized efforts now are being made to collect statistics to make -good this point, and the experience of the Ohio roads, as well as of those In Nebraska, will b'e cited. Great stress will be laid On the con fiscatory character of the new legislation, and it is confidently expected by the legal advisers of the roads that' the courts will not hesitate to interpose their authority to prevent such confiscation as Is alleged.

Leavenworth at Springfield. . Several members of the Joplin team claim that Topeka haa a much better team than Wichita.-- However they say that Wichita has a better pitch ing staff. Topeka is playing ball all the time and unless Wichita gets a run or two ahead early in the game they are apt to lose out. - r - Oklahoma News; -. Wichita hasn't it on Topeka. in any-sense and it is the opinion of most of the fans -that last year's Champs are the superior- team. in base running and. fielding the Hul- burt crew haa th Jobbers skinned. The teams are abonit eoual. in- hittinsv The; only in- whloh. Wichita-shows any superiority is in the pitching, .staff. That seems to be the. explanation of the standing of the Jobbers. - Arthur Queisser has been appointed temporary field captain :of- the Leaven worth team while; Manager Quigley has gone to St. Mary's to get some of his old college team, to join the Leaven worth team. : j Jay Andrews is now batting 393 for Hutchinson. If the big doctor had not been so unlucky in having fielders on the opposing teams rob him last year he would have had a higher bat ting average than he has this season, Poor old Dudley Risely;- He Is now managing the Fort Smith team in the O. A. K. league and his team so far has won 10 and lost 20 games which gives him a percentage of 333 and puts him on the lowest rung of the pennant ladder. -: ' Bennie Henderson, who will be re membered as a Western Association star a couple of seasons ago when Guthrie played in this league Is now with the Stockton team in the Cali fornia outlaw league where he is making a hit with the fans and is play ing great ball. Bennie always was a good pitcher and was one of the best who ever played in the Western asso elation. , Arnold has been playing with Dud RIsley on the Fort Smith team of the O. A. K. this season and went to Okla, homa City with Lawler, where he Join ed the Champs. Walter Boles -left last night to Join the Ft. Worth team. As soon as he arrived there Merkel will leave the Ft. Worth team and come to Topeka to join the locals. He will be here in time to pitch one of the games against Oklahoma City. If Ragan had ' slid In home in the ninth inning yesterday he would have undoubtedly been called safe. Henry was in a position where the play could not been seen exactly, .but Ragan by sliding, could have relieved Henry" of any doubt. The fact Is that Vander hill did not touch Ragan. Sedalla Sentinel: "Doc" Shlvely, of Kansas City, president of the Western Baseball association, is coming to Se dalia one day this week, it is said, to look over the situation with a view to transferring either the Leavenworth or Springfield ball club to this city. Both of these towns are "dead ones," from a baseball standpoint, it Is claim ed. and if Sedalians care to meet Presi dent Shlvely halfway it is almost cer tain that the city can secure a fran chise in the Western association. Oklahoma Post: Manager Jack Hoi land of the Wichita baseball team wears a very glum expression." His pitching staff appears to be causing him loss of sleep and much anxiety. He at the present time has six twlrlers on the salary sheet. The work of this corps during the past eight days, in losing four out of six games, is the principal cause of Jack's glumness. At Joplin, Wichita lost two out of three games. In each of the games where the Jobbers drew the small end of the final score, Holland used three pitch ers. He was compelled to substitute his twlrlers because of their lack of control. Joplin's two victories out of three games is directly responsible to the fact that the pitchers were unable to put the ball over when Army's men were at bat. - Young pitched a brilliant game against Oklahoma City Saturday, and had control. Speer lost in yesterday's game, although it was not especially responsible for his de feat, i i DROP FIRST ONE. Joplin Takes Ten Inning Game From White Sox. Player Umpires Make a Fiasco of the Contest. NEW BATTERY TRIED. Both Arnold and Tonneman " . Make Good.' . Captain Hurlbnrt Gives an Ex hibition of Temper. In the seventh Inning Armstrong had a grievance against. Umpire Mclr.nis and demanded that the latter be retir ed. Hurlburt agreed to take Mac out providing Root was taken out and Henry was substituted for both men. Henry did a good Job and would make ah improyemeht on some of the West ern Association officials but he made one mistake. In the ninth inning R.i gan came home on Tonnernan's fielders' choice and Henry called him out. There is no doubt that the ball reached home before Ragan did but Vanderhill neg lected to touch the runner. c.Re- Ragan'g One-handed Stop on Second. There is another thing which is dis gusting the spectators and that is the disposition of Captain Hurlburt to abuse his players in . full view and hearing of the people in the grand stand. This was painfully evident Wednesday and to put a cap sheaf on the whole business Hurlburt engaged In a controversy with a man in the arandst&nd who had expressed himself rather forcibly on tne pugnacious cap tain's methods of managing his. men. It was an unheard of proceeding and If Dersisted in will do much to Rill inter est in the game in Topeka. Hurlburt haa many good points as a player but he should learn to control his tem per. . Dick Rohn Is a Good Dodger Topeka tried out a new battery in the game. Arnold, the big pitcher, worked on the rubber and showed that he had the goods. He is a trifle wild but that Is about all that can be said against him. He has more smoke than any pitcher who has worked here this season and is hard to hit. Tonneman worked behind the bat and made good. He is especially strong in throwing. Lawler, the new outfielder did not have much of a chance to show off in the field. He dropped one difficult chance and took care of his only other on. In the eighth inning he secured a tri ple. Xawlor Can Run Some. Joplin - was the first to score, Fleming walked - and Vanderhill went to first when Arnold threw wild to Olson to make a double, Fleming going to third on the play. Vanderhill Started for second but Ragan intercepted the play and threw Fleming out at the plate. Happy Westcott, one of the poorost batters ln the association, then lined out a double and JopHn scored her first run. Topeka'g only run came in the sev enth inning. Ragan singled but Was caught at second on Runkel's fielders' choice.' Olson sacrificed Runkl9 to third."
