Thirty New 2:10. Trotters.
New York, Nov. 6 During the season
lust closed thirty trotters entered the
1:10 "charmed circle" and 65 pacers beat
1:10. While there is nothing especially
startling about thio statement in the.e
days of speed, 23 years ago the whole
country became greatly excited over
the fact when one horse had trotted a
mile In 2:10. Jay Eye See was the first
trotter to enter the list and he did it in
a trial against the watch over s-1 -tally
prepared track at Providence R. I.,
August 1, 1884. Ten davc' l-ter, at Lex
ington, Ky., Maud S. trotted a mile in
J:09i4, and she went into winter quar
ters that year with a mark of 2:09. Jay
Eye See never beat his record of 2:10
at the trotting ga.it, but stepped a mile
In 2:06 a few years later when he ha-1
been transformed tnto a pacer. Maud
S, reduced the trotting record to 2:08
In 1885. Since that time a great many
trotters have entered the 2:10 111 every
. year, and for that reason this season's
batch excites little notice.

AMES MAKES A PROTEST.
Objects to One of Referee Outland's
Nebraska Game Decisions.
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 6. Information
from Ames that the Iowa Aggies have
entered a "protest" against Nebraska's
victory in Saturday's game is hailed
only with derision in the Cornhusker
camp. A dispatch from Ames relates
that Coach Clyde Williams, of the Ag
gies, ft reputed to have said that Ref
eree Outland had promised to submit
to Walter Camp a question involving a
cusputea neia goal, claimed by Ames
but disallowed by Dr. Outland, and
that the referee had agreed to "revise
his ruling" if Camp decided in Ames'
favor. To set at rest any further con
tention a Lincoln newspaper wired to
Dr. Outland at Topeka, receiving from
htm the following response:
Decision not reversed. Score 10 to 9
in favor of Nebraska." Dr. Outland's
laconic statement settles the question
completely from a Nebraska standpoint
and Cornhusker authorities only smile
at the suggestion that there is further
room for contention. The play provok
ing the disputation on the part of Amos
concerned an attempted place kick by
the Aggies. The ball hit the ground
twenty yards or mure from the Nebras
ka goal line, dribbled along bv succes
sive boundsand Jumpf d upward toward
the cross bar. Ames claims that the
ball bounded over the bar, although
Referee Outland ruled at the time that
it had gone under, while hundreds of
spectators affirm his judgment. The
Ames captain, McElhinney. Insisted al
the time that the ball had been touched
by a Nebraska player and that when
Cooke, the Cornhusker quarter, put it
down for a touchback that Ames was
entitled to a safety. There was-no claim
at the time concerning a field goal. In
this connection Dr. Outland again ruled
against Ames, declaring the play a
touchback. Meanwhile the Cornhusk
ers are simply laughing at Ames while

AXXUALSALE, TEN KILUOM BOXES
Leavenworth, Nov. 6. A new school
has been opened here. There is noth
ing so very peculiar in that since new
schools are ODehed everywhere now
and not much thought Is given
them, but this one was just a little
different from any that was ever in
augurated before, for it had It birth
in the Kansas state prison ' and its
pupils were grown men, some of
whose hair was gray before they en
terea ine institution.
As some of this - class ' lined ud in
the prison chapel last nieht. it seemed
almost impossible' to think that the
hands that nervously grasped their
first slates could not form their own
er's names. Yet It is true and when
one stops to consider this condition it
is not hard . to see why there are
That Warden Haskell's cherished
project, this night school was meet
ing enthusiastic support from the men
whom it was to benefit, one had but
to look Into their eager faces to see,
Lined up in row after row they sat-in
earnest attention, many of them tired
from the day's labor, but erect and
alert lest they should miss some word
and thus spoil their chances in the
There were old men and young men
and middle aged men, with here and
there a boy in the crowd. There were
bright faces and dull ones and occa
sionally one that showed the bitterness-
of a life that someway had lost
its grip, while thrown in, it seemed
just to relieve the tragedy of the oth
era,: was' a jcheerful humorist or two,
who couldn't resist a smile at such
names as "Alexander" and "Sunny."
But over them all was the set look
that prison life brings and which was
for the time somewhat broken by the
new interest that thad come to break
the monotony of. their days.
There was perhaps never a school
where such absolute order was main
tained or where the scholars were so
attentive. Every man listened care
fully to the rules read by Chaplain
McBrain who is the superintendent of
the school and has done much to
make the old system a "success.
At the opening of the session War
den Haskell made a short address.
The-warden possesses the happy fac
ulty"' of saying a good deal In a few
words and' he never "preaches at" his
men. In a little heart to heart talk with
them he told thenif of what great
benefit the spbjbol. could be made to
them -and, Jijw uptMk their actions its
suceess- ancr furth.erijriaintenance de
pended., .r't -
Perhaps the'trpngeSt point of his
talk was made when, utter a pause, he
said: -Boys, even in a prison you
can make something or your lives.
This has been profved by - a lifetime
prisoner who just last week was given
his freedom Thefe was not an officer
in the Institution who was. not glad to
know that he had been given a pardon
and this was because . he had the
strength to ftialte of .-himself Just
what he was. a manly man. ' .
- After the warden's little ' speech
there was a deep -'silence. - It seemed
that the men . had absorbed every
word of it. Tnere was no one in the
large audience who needed to be told
that the man referred to was Emmett
Dalton and there was probably not a
man who was not glad to ..hear . him
given th;s tribute. .
, Upon the, stage, sat the , twenty-six
teachers who were willing to help the
ether3 less fortunate than themselves.
Among these men there were univer
sity graduates, many of whose faces
often showed intellectual strengtn not
often seen in the average man.
A roll was called, first the teacher's
name and then those of his class. As
thev were assigned the men stood In
their nlaces near the door and when
the class was filled, passed Into the
school room accompanied by their in
structor and a guard.
The algebra class in which are
taught the higher branches had a
good representation. These men will
take up civil government, English
literature, algebra, and rhetoric.
There was also a finishing class In
penmanship. But It was in the lower-
grades, which ran up tc the Foiarth,
that most of the men were classified.
The primary class, or grade one,
was the best filled of any. This was
divided into sections, those who could
not write at all and those who had
made various degrees of ; progress.
There was a large showing of colored
men in this group, while some of the
white men were gray haired and car
ried their slates as though they were
still a little uncertain as to their use.
In the front row sat a boy, a thin,
pale fellow, who looked scarcely more
than sixteen. To him this school was
the most wonderful thins in the
world. With his eyes" big and round
with excitement and his hands nerv
ously twisting, he looked like a real
"first grader" whose mother had just
brought him to school. When ques
tioned as to what he knew he an
swered in low embarrassed tones, "I
think maybe I can read a little, but I
don't know how to write." He was
taken to a class where a young col
lege graduate was patiently trying to
teach a gray haired colored man the
difference between "a" and "b."
And so on down the long list they
went. On a seat by himself and very
much occupied with his slate was
Melvin, the man who tried dynamite
on the Iola Joints. Thin faced and sad
looking, he labored with his' pencil,

few days again. I feel that I am go

Then in a cell all to himself he
fights his battle and when he thinks
he can trust himself he is released

Gilbert Guthrie Writes Interestingly of
utre in central America,
Atchison. Kan.; Nov. .' 6. The Globe
Gilbert Guthrie, who left here sev
eral months ago for-Central America,
writes an interesting letter from San
Juancito, Honduras, where he is- en
gaged in building a cyanide plant for a
big mining company. Among other
things he says:
"Had a bully good trip down here,
and had to lay over at Panama for
about a week. As the old tub of a Pa
cific Mail .stopped at all the ports com
ing up (on the Pacific side), I had a
chance to see some of Nicaragua and
Costa Rica. War was on between Nica
ragua and Honduras - besides a bunch
of revolutions, and then San Salvador
butted into the game with the United
States warships as a background. It
maue a lovely rness.for several months.
The day I reached - camp a battle was
going on not many miles away. The
mining company was trying the experi
ment of running automobiles over the
mountains, but it didn't work very well.
They sent an auto down to meet me at
the coast, and say, boys, it was certain
ly an exciting ride over the ninetv miles
of wild, picturesque mountain road.
The country was full of ragged sol
diers, and yours- truly was looking most
of the time for a good piece of tall
timber that would hide a man about
my size.. When we reached Tegucigal
pa, the capital, we had to hit it over the
twenty-mile trail out to this place. The
manager welcomed me with open arms,
and about the time I was beginning to
feel comfortable, he gave me the in
formation that I was expected to do
wonders In the way of of converting
the old, rickety concentration and
amalgamation plant into an up-to-date,
modern cyanide plant.
After a close inspection of the com
pany mules, to pick out which one could
carry me out. of the country the quick
est, I took a good smoke,' and decided
to have a try at it. I found that I was
expected to be a mining and civil engi
neer, metallurgist, chemist, assayer,
miner, . construction engineer, mill
wright, cyanide expert, and a few other
things. ' The mechanics had never seen
a cyanide plant before, and my head
carpenter is a native and deaf. When
I want him to do anything, I have eith
er to write it in Spanish, or make 'high
signs.' I believe that I could now
teach a monkey to speak Russian. The
company gave me a free hand, and my
word la law on the new plant, and now,
after steady experimental work, and
good plugging, I have a plant about
two-thirds done that will be a dandy,
San Juancito is a small camp of sev
eral thousand inhabitants, and plenty
of dogs and pigs, and is located In
very picturesque hole in the mountains.
The climate is fine; also the neas are
plentiful. There are twenty to twenty
five white men and two white women
In .the camp- : The chief excitement is
giving; farewell dinners to departing
brethren, who-are leaving either for
their own or the company's good.' Dur
ing the war it was rumored that this
place was to be plundered, so our local
soldiers took time by the forelock and
vanished, so we "gringos" had to do
guard and police duty. I went around
armed to the teeth, scared to death.
but in perfect running order, ' A drunk
en native shot off his gun for fun, and
the shot whistled over my hfd. The
way I ducked for cover would have
made a Filipino turn white. The na
tives never bother the white men, but
among thempelves they are a peaceful
lot, I don't think. The way they carve
each other up is something wonderful.
People in the states think that these
Central American wars and revolutions
are Jokes, but they kill Just as dead as
they do anywhere. When I finish here
am to go over Into Nicaragua to ln-
pect a property there and hope to get
home sometime in the. spring, I have
the best bachelor quarters in camp, a
good salary, ple.ity of work and worry,
and a powerful keen desire to get home
for a while."
