Absolutely the First Showing of Special New Pictures Including the ELKS PARADE in Philadelphia CAST WEEK and other new subjects. Special invitation to the Antlered Herd in Topeka. Exhibition will last 30 minutes beginning each u evening at 9 o'clock. 'WESTERN' ASSOCIATION GOSSIP WHERE THEY PLAY TOMORROW. Oklahoma City at Topeka. Joplin at Wichita. Leavenworth at Webb City. . . Hutchinson at Springfield. - Merely for the benefit of that individ ual on "the morning lick-spittle, whose erudition Is self-confessed. It is stated that the round robin letter to the State Journal from the members of the White Sox team, telling of the harmony -which exists with them, -was not received at this of fice until 6 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, or more than an hour later than the time when the paper goes to press. For that excellent reason it was not' printed on Saturday afternoon and 1 made public now at the first oppor tunity. It is as follows: Joplin, Mo., July 26, 1807. Topeka State Journal, Topeka, Kan. Gentlemen: We have Just seen a clipping from your' paper relative to a purported trouble between Mr. Hurl burt and Mr. Davis of the Topeka baseball club, while at Springfield, Mo., and desire to state that the same Is erroneous, and believing that you de sire to give only such Information as is true and not to create ill feeling among the players on the team, as well as hurt the patrons of the game In To peka, we deem It a Justice to ourselves that- the came be corrected and the public be- advised of same, also how and upon what basis the information as published by you, was received. For we, the undersigned players, do hereby voluntarily - assert that there was and has been no trouble whatever between Mr. Hurlburt and Mr. Davis at Spring field and that no patrol wagon was called orf iiaed. -an frther -that there is a perfect harmony,- jexiBting .among the players on the team. There was trouble between released player, Mr. Tonneman and Mjr.i Hurlburt. but that the same was instigated by Mr. Tonne man. Willie the" affair was unfortu nate, we maintainthat Mr. Hurlburt acted Justly under the existing cir cumstances. Jack G. Halla. Spencer A. Abbott, G. H. Davis, Roy N. Ar nold, Emery Olson, Steve Ragan. John P. Gilbert, E. Wooley, John Bunton, Mike Erwin, L. Runkel, F. P. Robbins. It will be noticed that the prevailing tenor of this letter is that the dis graceful row at Springfield did not oc cur between Hurlburt and Davis as was stated in the first dispatch from Springfield on the subject to the State Journal. This error had already been rectified by the State Journal. Tonne man w-as the man with whom Hurl burt had the embroglio which resulted in Hurlburt's arrest and subsequent fine. That harmony exists among the members of the team, according to one brief sentence in the letter, is good news, which is welcomed by the State Journal and all the other followers of the team. Harmony among them has been needed for some time. It would seem from the letter, however, that this harmony exists among the mem bers of the team irrespective of Hurl burt. He does not sign the letter aB would be supposed if he was in on this "harmony." He had as much reason to sign the letter as did Davis or any other member of the team were this "harmony" amongst them all,, a reality. Wolfe, who caught for Topeka last year for a short time and afterwards went to Lincoln and Des Moines, start ed out this season with Milwaukee, At the present time he is catching for Peoria in the Three Eye league. He ranks eleventh among the backstops In that league and is batting at the ter rific Clip of .10L Sylvester Olson, who is one of the most popular visiting players to come to Topeka, is not with Joplin on this trip.

JTHE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA" GA. AT: pitched two games, shutting out one team by a score of 3 to 0 and another by a score of 5 to 0. Oklahoman: With Dick Cooley at the helm for Topeka it is not unlike ly tnat Oklahoma City will have a hard rub to retain second position in tne western association pennant race Gilbert was handed his release yes terday. He has won on? and lost two games since he has been with the White Sox. He seems to have a fair repertoire of goods but does not use them Judiciously and hence has trou ble in getting away with the prize. He is thinking or going to Kansas City, seeiung a tryout with the Burke ag gregation. Umpire Guthrie Is here to work in the present home series. Guthrie has a bad looking eye, but is otherwise all. right, . notwithstanding his recent fracas with the Webb City team Guthrie was hardly treated fair in that city especially when he was ar rested for trouble that was not caus- ed by himself and then after being placed behind the bars was refused medical attendance. He is young, but gives promise of being about as good as they make them in this brush. He has the nerve and that is more than can be said for a majority of indica tor handlers. Pitcher Jerry Buchanan, ' of the Oklahoma City team, has. been re leased and has returned to his home in Little Rock. Buchanan seems to have nearly everything a pitcher ever did have, but is unable to get away witn tne goc-as ana was released be cause of his hard luck. In his place the Mets have added a new pitcher by the name of McrjITntock, who hails from? -the O. A. K. league and. is Tated as one of the best twirlers in that cir cuit. Welcome N-ewsf The Oklahoma Post says: Members' of both the Okla homa City and Wichita teams will be have on the field hereafter or pay the penalty. "I called my men together the oth er day and told them that I would not stand for rowdyism any more," says Breese. "They understand that every fine assessed by an umpire will be taken out of their salary and that I will multiply It by five myself and deduct that amount in addition. I have Capt. Holland hired to do the talking and my men have got to let him exercise that privilege." President Heyman also stands for strict discipline. "The Mets understand that they must be gentlemen on the field," he says. ".bJven if we finish at the bot tom. I want everybody who gees the players on the Oklahoma City team, to witness them act like men and not bullies. Every member on the team thoroughly understands that fines will stick and will be taken out of their envelopes." Detroit News: And while the bou quets are being tossed about one must not forget this red haired lad. Downs. They said last year when they got him from the bushes that he was breaking the back field fences out west with his extra base hitting. He's living up to his reputation with a vengeance. When he hits the ball it goes on a straight line way to the outfield. It's not to be expected that Jerry should be way up in the batting average, for he has not ' been in enough games, but he'll keep right on improving. As for his fielding Jerry is not as good as Schaefer by a long shot, nor can he run bases as the Dutchman does. But as he says himself: "I've been playing in the outfield so long that I've kind o' gotten out of the infield habit." He is one of the kind that admits he has lots to learn and he is willing to be told. There Is no question but "Schaef" will go into the game as soon as his back is better, as there are few can beat him for clear, quick thinking. But Jerry ha shown what he can do. and his presence on the bench, even, will strengthen the team. It looks like a fight for position from now on. Jerry seems determined to land a regular berth somewhere on the team. RK': PURIFIES 2o THE BLOOD VAGNKEADS. The "Flying Dutchman" of the Pirates the Champion Batter. For the Fifth Time He Holds National League Honors. HITTINGIS VERY WEAK Seren of the Slab Artists Are in the Errorless Class. Philadelphia Leads in the Long Range Slugging. St. Louis, July 29., The latest com pilation of National . league averages shows a still further decrease in bat ting, as only two regular men and-two pitchers are in the .300 class. Richey of the Phillies has the highest per centage, being .375, and is followed by Scanlon of the Superbas. These men have played in but a dozen games, however, and Hans' Wagner of the pirates is the real leader, with the mark of .321. Should he win first honors again it will be the fifth time, a record never equalled. The big shortstop is followed by Magee cf the Phillies. Lumley, who was formerly in the select, has dropped back' to .287; Murray and Holly are doing the best stick work for the Cardinals, standing .257 and .252, respectively. Although the Cubs had a slump with the willow, they still lead in club'bat tir.g, with the percentage of .248, and are 2 points ahead of the Giants. The Trolley Dodgers are still climbing and are fifth, while . the Cardinals have dropped to last place, with the per centage cf .227. Philadelphia l-?ads in long range hit ting, having .330 extra base3 to, their credit, while McCloskey's men are tfth in this respect. Among the Individuals, Wagner leads the sluggers by a wide margin, while Murray is the best among the Cardinals. Magee of the Philliesand Hans Lobert of the Reds are tied for base running honors, having purloin ed twenty-five bases so far, but are being closely followed by Chance of the Cubs. The Pirates have stolen by far the most bases, wlfle the Reds have the most sacrifice hits to. their credit. Shannon of 'the Giants., is. still the best run-getter by' a big lead avei? Strange of the same .club. .- . , The Cubs lead in club fielding, with the fine percentage of .968, while the Giants are second and the Cardinals are in the last rut, with the mark of .946. Among the Individual fielders, seven slab artists are in the errorless class, Chicago and Pittsburg having two each. Bow.erman still . heads the backstops, with the. wonderful mark of .993. Noonan and Marshall -of -the Cardinals rank well down, being .953 and .946, respectively. Ganzel of the Reds is the premier first sacker, hav ing the remarkable percentage of .896.- Konetchey is ' thirds with - the mark of .893, having made . but two: errors. Richey of ..thef,8ea,t. Eaters is. still the leader at second -basej . but is" only 1 point ahead of Knabe of the Philles, who is putting up a wonder ful game. Tinker of the Cubs leads the shortstops, with .960, while Holly of the Cardinals-is sixth. Steinfeldt is still the boss third sacker, with the swell mark of .963. Byrne is sixth. Kummell of the Brooklyn club has a pprfect record in the outfield, but has plaved in but a few games, and Tom my Leach of the Pirates is the real leader. Burnee, one of McCloskey's latest men, ranks the highest among the Cardinal outfielders, with the per centage of .950. ''"Murrey is .945 and Barry is .941. ;; . . THEY MISS ELMER OT.ICK. Cleveland's Long Hitter Quits When Third in the List.' ' ' Cleveland, July 29. Just how. valuable Elmer Flick is to the Cleveland ball club and how much his desertion . ef fects his club's standing in the race at the present time can be guessed by, a glance at the average figures of the American league for the past week.. In them Flick is credited with being one of the three leaders in batting, safely entrenched in third position with a .337 mark. He has made 105 hits this sea- sen, of which seven were two-baggers. 16 triplets and three home runs. He has stolen 27 bases and has sacrificed per fectly ten times. Only Crawford of , Detroit . and;. Niles of St. Louis nave a Detter snowing. Niles leads the league and plays with the St. Louis team, not figured in the flag race. Crawford is second with De troit, a team which, with Philadelphia, now form a combination' of formidable rivals to the White Sox for first place honors. With Flick back in the game and Lajoie on second Cleveland would loom even greater than these. Cobb, another Detroit man;- is fourth in the battintr list. Of the first 15 men St. Louis has three. Detroit has two, Cleveland two. New York three, Boston one; Philadel nhia one and Washineton three. - The leading base stealers: Flick, and Conrey, with 27 each;, Cobb, 18; Lajoie 14; Chase, 15; Anderson. 15; .Doherty, 20: Oldrine. 17: Hoffman. .16; Ganley, 23: Rossman, 15; Altizer, 17; Donohue, 16; Tom Jones, 19; Turner, 16. .; Bradley of Cleveland' is king of sac rifice hitters, with 37 to his credit. Fielder Jones is close to him With 2r. Jones is improving with the stick and is now batting at a .273 clip. IN THE WESTERS LEAGUE. Neither Omaha Nor Lincoln Repre sented in the 30O Batting Class. ' Omaha,July 29. Neither Omaha nor Lincoln is -represented in the ranks of the Western league's .300 .sluggers, yet the two teams are fighting for the lead. Strange that Des, Moines, Sioux City' and Denver have all the big. hit ters. There are ten men with aver ages over .300- and they are divided among these three clubs. Pueblo also being without representation. Hart. Hogriever. Yeager,- Cassady and Murphy are the only "men who have played in fifty games or more to bat better than -.300-. Omaha's best sticker is Joe Dolan, who is clouting them out for .290. Autrey is second, with Welch and Graham following in order. Bill Belden, Pa's right fielder, has made more runs than any man in the league. He has crossed the rubber fifty-eight times. Captain Fox of Lin coln leads Ui stolen bases and sacrifice, hits. Weed of Sioux City has made the most doubles.- .This big fellow is climbing right up to the top and will be among the leaders if he keeps up his great stick work. Ryan bf Pueblo ; has made eight . triples and Jack Thomas has seven Jiome runs. There was .an interesting and merry struggle on among a few of the. play ers last week, to see which would be the first to. get .his hundredth hit of the season. It;, so happened that Murphy, Fenlon and Autrey each made the century on the same day last Sunday. Weed and Ketcham got theirs the. next, day and Ryan passed into the century, .mark on Tuesday.

With half the flat racing season over the statisticians have got to work. According to the figures, Mr. W. Hall. Walker leads the list of winning owners, with Richard Croker fourth on the list. There are those who believe if Mr. Croker"s great horse had been given fair treatment in the way of handicaps that the American would have been much nearer if, indeed, not at the very top of the list. Twenty-four own ers have winnings of $10,000 or more. Thus far Slieve Gall ion is the topi notcher, having earned for his owner, Captain Greer, something like $40,000. Croker's Orby, the Derby winner, is in second place, with a total of $33,585, the result of two races. White Knight, the best handicap horse in England, is in third place, with a total of $28,475, the result also of three races. The winning stallions have come in for some calculation and it has. been found that the twenty-three-year-old Gallinui'.' holds the pride of place with a total of $66,505, his get having made .11 wins. Desmond is second with $64,700, the re sult of 23 races. Orme, the sire of Orby and Witch Elm, is third, with $58,310, this sum being gathered by his get in six races. . .
