Will Take Thirty Players in March to California. IN A SPECIAL TRAIN. Will Stay a Month In the Coast Cities. Side Trip to Seattle and Port land to Be Taken. Chicago, Jasa. 2. When the White Sox "Went to California last February In their own speoial train they set a prece dent for high flass travel among base bull teams. Bfcit next March they are going to elaborate on that famous trip. Negotiations are under way and It looks certain that a duplicate of the Overland Limited will be chartered for the trip. A whcfle month Is, going to be spent In California, and the members of the Sox team may, before returning east, visit Porttemd and Seattle. Those cities have offered President Comiskey some rich guara ntees to bring his team into the north wsst, but he has not de cided on that detail. A year ago th Sox went straight to Los Angeles in their special train. A switch In arrangements will be made this tlmve, and the former champs of the wo'ld will hike straight for Frisco, starting from here about March 1. A year ago the' Sox spent most of their time in southern California, their real headquarters being Los Angeles. That arra ogements " didn't please the Frisco fans, who saw too much of the second team when they wanted to see the stars In action. This time the first squad will give the Frisco fans all the parries they want, and in fact all of California wall have plenty of oppor tunity to see the first team, as during the thirty days to be spent there the whole state wall be covered thoroughly. There will be plenty of time left over for a trip to Portland and Seattle, but Comiskey Isn't quite certain at this time whether he wants to send his team up there. The customary southern Junket will be omitted from the Sox programme next spring. A few dates may be played in Texas, but that old journey up the Mississippi valley will not be made. In all probability games will be played in Fan Antonio, Fort Worth, Houston and Dallas, but from Texas the sox will hop north fast and acclimate themselves with half a dozen games north of the Ohio river. It Is figured to send one section of the team home through the middle west and stops probably will be made at Salt Lake City, Denver. Omaha, Des Moines and other cities. The league season will open April 14. It is the Cubs' turn to open In Chicago and for the Sox to play their champion ship series "on the road." Thirty players will be taken on the trip. .AH of the men on last year's team and several new ones will be taken for a try-out. Last year Comiskey regret ted that he hadn't planned to make a What Do They Cure? The above question is often asked cob. eerning Dr. Pierce's two leading medi cine, "Golden Medical Discovery" and "Favorite Prescription." The answer is that "Golden Medical Discovery " is a most potent alterative or blood-purifier, and tonic or invigorator and acts especially favorably in a cura tive way upon all the mucous lining sur faces, as of the nasal passages, throat, bronchial tubes, stomach, bowels and bladdeor-carlng a large per cent, or catar rhal cakes whether he disease affects too nasal parages, the thsoat, larynx, bron chia, stomacnNlas catarrhal dyspepsia bowels (as mupiiditfcaJ. bladder, uterus or other pelvic organs- Even in affection it.

The words of praise bestowed on the several ingredients entering into Doctor Pierce's medicines by such writers should have more weight than any amount of non - professional testimonials, because such men are writing for the guidance of their medical brethren and know whereof they speak.

Chicago, Jan. 2. B. B. Johnson, who, as a member of the national commission, dug up most of the evi dence in the ticket scalping case, said he was afraid that Secretary Thomas of the Cubs wouldn't bring suit against him, as Thomas had threatened to do. "I'll send Thomas my check to help get the suit started," said Johnson. "And I will promise him that, once started, I will prevent the suit being dropped. It will go through to a finish. And when it's over the fans will know who received the tickets." Mr. Thomas, who claims that he is being made the goat in the row over the seat sale for the last world's 6eries, is undecided whether to begin the damage suit against Johnson. His at torney had advised him to go slowly in the matter. Thomas Is not quite cer tain Just at present whether he has grounds for a suit. Nothing more damaging than angry words resulted In the talk about going to law. Thomas assistant. Ticket Seller Cooke, thought he might cut in, too, with a lawsuit. He says he may sue Johnson for defamation of char acter. He has sought legal advice and, according to his story, is likely to start action against the president of the American league at any time.

William Weston Who Defrauded a Hutchinson Bank In a California Jail for the Same Offense. CONDUCTED REVIVALS Evangelist Helped Secure His Freedom in Kansas. The Bankers' Association Not Be So Lenient. Will Hutchinson, Kan., Jan. 2. William W. Weston, the man who beat a local bank two years or so ago, through cashing a bad check, has been caught in Los Angeles for swindling and will likely have to stand trial, with a good chance of conviction. Weston is the man who claimed to be a Methodist preacher and was con ducting a big revival In a Methodist church in Oklahoma when arrested for the crime committed here. He had all the tools a forger should need in his possession when caught. He was put in Jail here and told a wandering story of his past career, claiming to have been a dope fiend for a part of his life. Tim Casey, then living here, and Rev. W. K. Biederwolf, the revivalist who was conducting a series of reviv als in Hutchinson at that time, both become interested In Weston or West wood, as he gave his name. They suc ceeded in getting the man out of Jail and his case dismissed, because he said he was a preacher and because he had the finest line of talk you ever heard. when he needed to use it. He is said to have gone from the 'Jail here to a city farther east and started up a revival business again, being quite successful in a Missouri city. Then he drifted out to the coast. It was in San Francisco where Wes ton did his work this time. He step ped into a bank there and asked if a check on a bank in LeMars. Iowa, would be honored without identification if the Iowa bank should wire to do so. Being assured it would be all right he soon had a boy, purporting to be a regular telegraph boy, appear with the proper telegram for the bank people. He got the money and it was so easy that he started for Los Angeles to have a good time. But he was soon caught. Now he is in Jail awaiting trial and the bankers of the country will see that he gets what is coming to him. WAS STRICKEX DUMB. Cherokee County Farmer Has a Sud den Affliction. Columbus.

RED CROSS CALL Meeting Will Be Held Monday to Con eider Relief Measures. While all America is doing what it can to relieve the distress of the suffer ing Italians. Kansas is not going to be In the background, calmly looking on and seeing the other states of the union heroically putting forth every effort to help those poor people. That is not Kansas style. The American battleships, originally intended and constructed as peace pro ducing agents for the entire world, are now about to demonstrate that purpose in an unlooked for manner, by going into the midst of the stricken district and working effectively to restore the courage of those people whose homes and whose hopes have been destroyed In that fearful calamity. Now is the time for Kansas, which has never had and never expects to have an earthquake greater than a powaer explosion or a fanatic's speech, , to show their sympathy and good will by making liberal contributions. The Red Cross in Kansas has been organized for the express purpose of be ing of service In Just such emergencies as this. It is composed entirely of re liable, trustworthy, philanthropic peo. pie all over the state of Kansas, with Governor E. W. Hoch at Its head, to whom contributions may be confidently sent, with the full knowledge that all contributions will reach the source for which they were Intended. The con tributions sent to the San Francisco sufferers are proof of that and speaks well of the liberality of Kansas people Contributions from Kansas will be sent directly to the American National Red Cross at Washington, and from there transmitted with the contributions of other states as long as such aid shall be needed. A remittance of $50,000 has al ready been sent forward from the na tional treasury, and more will be sent as needed as fast as it is collected. Red Cross receipts will be sent to all contributors, signed by the state secre tary, Mrs. B. B. Smyth of Topeka. These receipts are a badge of honor and something of which the holder will be proud in after years. j A meeting of the Kansas branch of the American Red Cross Is hereby called to convene at the office of Gov ernor Hoch on Monday afternoon, Jan uary 4, at two o'clock, for the purpose of taking such action as will best sub serve these ends. The needs . of the Italians are Imperative. Shall we listen to their appeals for help In the depths of their distress, or shall we turn a deaf ear, draw our garments tightly around us, and grasp a tight hold on our purse strings? B. B. 8.
