MARCH 25 Ducky Holmes Signs Taylor, an Ex-Omaha Twirler. A Fine Lot of Umpires Are Slated, Says O'Neill. The chances are that the Denver team will be a better fighting aggregation the coming season than it has ever been be fore in the history of the Western League. President Burke has been a very busy man during the past few weeks. He is getting his 1909 aggrega tion together with a determination to have a winning team. He has sent out his contracts ,for 1909 and is confident that with but a-singlc exception or two every man under reserve will come Into the fold without trouble. One of the exceptions is Harry White, the popular first baseman of last sea eon's team. White has a good business in Chicago where he is making money. and he may decide to quit the game. He will be missed by the fans and man agement as well. Burke, however, is confident that White will return. - The men upon whom Burke is plac irg his dependence for a 1909 team and from whom he expects to draw for his next year's aggregation, and who have received contracts for 190') are as fol lows: Catcher, Billy McDonough and Jack Zalusky; pitchers, Olmstead, Bo hannon, Rick Adams, Ted Corbett, Jackson and E. K. Calvert; first base man. White: second baseman, Heinie Maag of Dallas; third baseman. Chat ley Orwin; shortstop, Charley Hartman of New York city: left fielder, X.ovelt; center fielder, Belden; right fielder, Cassady. Burke has also sent contracts to sev eral tryouts, among whom are Harry Thompson, second baseman for Fort Worth last season; Thomas Stankard of the Springfield. Mass., team and Wald ron. who performed in the Denver out field a year ago. Burke has ordered his men to report In Kansas City March 25. He is now working on a spring schedule of exhi bition games. Last season the team went to Joplin, Springfield and other towns in the Ozarks. But the rains kept the men from getting into good condition. This season he wants to keep his men in Kansas. Some games will be played with Kansas City. Then parries will probably be arranged with St. Mary's college, Kansas university, College of Emporia, state normal, Cha mute, Cherryvale. Parsons, Independ ence and Hutchinson. The Denver team played three games here last season, but this wm not De auowaoie ims season as Topeka Is now in the same circuit. The Denver team will probably open the season in this section. Ducky Holmes of Sioux City has signed a semi-professional pitcher, Charles Taylor of Omaha. Taylor was The Story of a Medicine. Its name "Golden Medical Discovery" Was suggested by one of its most import ant and valuable. Ingredients Golden Seal root. ' Nearly forty years ago, Dr. Pierce dis covered that he could, by the use of pure, triple-refined glycerine, aided by a cer tain degree of constantly maintained heat and with the aid of apparatus and appliances designed for that purpose, ex tract from our most v&lnable native me dicinal roots their curative properties much better than by the use of alcohol, so generally employed. So the now world famed "Golden Medical Discovery," foe the cure of weak stomach. Indigestion, or dyspepsia, torpid liver, or biliousness and kindred derangements was first made, as it ever sinae has bWn, without a particle of alcohol in its mata-up.

From these endorsements, copied from standard medical books of all the differ ent schools of practice, it will be found that the Ingredients composing the "Gold en Medical Discovery" are advised not only for the cure of the above mentioned diseases, but also for the cure of all ca tarrhal, bronchial and throat affections, accompained with catarrhal discharges, hoarseness, sore throat, lingering, or hang-on-coughs, and all those wasting affections which, if not promptly and firoperly treated are liable to terminate n consumption.

President Tip O'Neill of the Western league dropped the following bit of dope on the perplexing umpire ques tion: "I see that you are not overlooking the fact that the Western league is go ing to supply some of the best baseball ever seen in the section represented by the circuit next season. You can not say too much, for I believe it is going to be like a new league; new life, new faces and a whole lot of things that go to make baseball popular. "And while thinking of the class of ball that is going to be played and a most likely hot race for the pennant, don't forget that we are going to have good umpiring. I can not at this time announce the officials, but I can say that capable men will handle the Indi cators. There was considerable trou ble with the umpires last year, and it hurt the game in some towns to a greater extent than some of the fans realize. I expect no such trouble dur ing the coming season, with strict, un biasel and capable men in charge of the game." Frank Hurlburt, owner of the Springfield Midgets in the reorganized Western association, has secured Van Tappan, an infielder from the Inde pendence team. Prank Conley, a third baseman from Hastings. Neb., is an other lnflelder. Tommy Smith. "Mike" Grady -and "Dolly" Gray are the other Inflelders of the Midgets. Affy Wilson will again manage the team. "Butch" Freese, the clown catcher of the Hutchinson team last season, will catch for the Bartlesville Western asslcoation team next season. TEN ROUNDS TO A DRAW.

The Chicago boy started after his man in the tenth round fighting him from one side of the ring to the other.

Almost Immediately he was up and fighting but McFarland fairlv smoth ered him with rights and lefts to the head. Hyland was hanging - on throughout the last half of this round.

Pete Sullivan of Salt Lake won the decis ion last night over Cyclone Johnny Thompson of Chicago in a fast twenty round contest.

RAiLR0AD NEWS. Workingnien Receive SeTenty One Per Cent of Earnings. President Brown of New York Made Investigation. ROADS PROFIT LESS. Only Nine Dollars of Every Hun dred Goes to the Owners. Other Items of Interest in Rail way Circles. What became of the $2,585,913,000 gross earnings of the railroads of this country last year is a question which W. C. Brown, president-elect of the New York Central, set about to learn a little while ago. The result of his In vestigations has been made public, and In doing so he answers the question. Mr. Brown says $71 out of every $100 earned by the railroads in 1907 was al most immediately redisbursed in pay ment for labor or equipment and ma terial, of which labor forms by far the largest component part. He says that the railroads receive more and keep less than almost any other department of business activity in this country. Out of every $100 earned by the rail roads, he says, only $9 goes to the own ers, the shareholders representing less than 4 per cent on the face value of the securities. The result of Mr. Brown's investiga tion was contained in an address made last week by him before the Illinois Manufacturers association. "In mileage the railroads of the United States approximate 225,000 miles." said Mr: Brown. "They em ployed in 1307 in the neighborhood of 1,675,000 men, and their gross earnings amounted to $2,585,913,000. or more than $7,000,000 for each of the 365 days of the year. Figures of this magnitude can be better comprehended bv comparison and It may be stated that the number of employes on the pay rolls of Ameri can railroads in 1907 was only about 80.000 less than the standing armies of the United States, Great Britain, uer- many. France, and Japan combined. Their gross earnings were three times the total revenue of the United States eovernment- twenty-nine times the to tal srold production of the United States, and six times the gold produe tion of the world." TO JTCMBKIi STATIONS. Xciv Device Being Patented for Pciin. sylvania Road. A new and ingenious scheme for calling out stations has been presented to General Manager W. W. Atterbury of the Pennsylvania railroad, and has been referred by mm to a committee of operating officers. If adapted, an indicator would be placed in the upper right hand corner of each end or a car. When the train left one station the brakeman would, pull a lever which would show the number of the next, all stations going by numbers instead of names. The cost would be almost $100,000 for the Pennsylvania system, with an adidtional cost of $250,000 for changing station signs. It would, however, make traveling for the public more convenient.

A rehearing has been secured by the Santa Fe road from the Interstate Commerce commission of the case in which the commission decided that it could not transport free supplies to the hotels on its line run by Fred Harvey, with whom the road has con tracts. The road contends that the decision, if adhered to, will make it impossible for it to maintain more than ten hotels between Chicago and the Pacific coast for the cars of Its transcontinental travel. In Its decision the commission held that where a railroad made contracts with hotel keepers for the care of its passengers and transported its sup plies free, the service of feeding peo ple by such hotels must be limited to j me people actually traveling uvtT iia road. It is claimed by the Santa Fe that the enforcement of this decision would be a deathblow to the hotels along its lines in which over $5,000,000 is in vested. It would be impossible to ex clude the general public from these hotels. The road hopes to be able to convince the commission that there is nothing illegal in what It is doing. If an adverse decision is given by the commission, the company will take the case Into the courts. Officials of the road say the string of hotels which the company maintains has done more than any other thing to build up the towns and the passenger traffic of the road. FUNDS FOR SEW LINE.
