Airship Speed Contest-Manage-ment
Asks for $10,000..,
Little; Chance That This Sum
Will Be Kaised.
There is a slight chance that Topeka
will be included as one of the checking
stations in connection with the grand
circuit aeroplane race between repre
sentatives of various nations. It is only
a ghost of a chance, however, judging
from the sentiment expressed at a
meeting of business men at the Com
mercial club .this noon.
The drawback would be the raising
o" $10,000 which would be necessary to
assure the landing of the finish of a
lap of the race for Topeka. A com
mittee was appointed to investigate the
proposition further. It is composed of
Secretary J. Will Kelley, J. F. Whit
ford, of the- Western Areo association.
nd H. L. Cook, secretary of the State
fsir. ' ' ' .'... ."''
C. W. French, secretary of the Aero
Ciub of America was present at the
meeting to explain the details of the
race. ,
The starting point will be Chicago.
Other cities which may be included in
the circuit are some in ;Iowa, Lincoln,
Keb., Topeka. Kansas City, Dayton,
Ohio, Akron, Ohio, and Detroit, Mich.
It was the general opinion of those
present that it would be difficult to
raise $10,000 in Topeka, but that the
race would be an excellent means of
advertising the city.

"The board of health have careful

Feeling Against Americans In
creased by Orozco Incident.
Juarez. Mexico, June 18. Distinc
tension is manifest here today over the
news of the latest government plans
to capture this town and the city of
Chihuahua, the only important rebe
The approach of big federal columns
from the state of Sonora makes it od
vious fighting will occur close to the
American border within a few days.
That American officials are expecting
an engagement is indicated by corres
pondence made public yesterday be
tween Colonel E. Z. Steever, comman
der .of the department of Texas, and
Pascual Orozco, Sr., father of the rebel
commander-in-chief and head of the
Juarez garrison.
Colonel Steever cautions the rebt!
commander that in case of an encoun
ter at Juarez "You must so conduct
operations as not to bring any part of
the territory of the Tjnlted States un
der your fire; the use of bullets, shells
shrapnel, bombs, or other projectiles or
explosives by either of the contendinf
Mexican forces in such a manner as tc
endanger life or property within tht
limits of the United States cannot b
permitted. "
Rebel Reply Is Saucy.
The rebel reply sent by Colonel
Orozco says in part:
'Although the American government
trampling ostensibly the neutrality laws
orders you to sustain with all efficacy
that 'bunch of mercenary Maderistas
that are acting in, El Paso, I assure you
that we will try in every possible way
to meet the conditions of your com
munication but without promising tc
do it in case the American authorities
sanction the passing to this side of the
Maderista troops which publicly art
being organized in El Paso under the
direction of the Mexican consul, E. U
Orozco's Wife Is Stopped.
One Incident that added to the ill
feeling against Americans which admit
tedly has prevailed here since the pol
icy of alleged partiality to the Mexican
government became pronounced wa
the difficulty Of Mrs. Pascual Orozco
Jr.. wife of the rebel commander-in-
chief, in crossing to El Paso today
Senora Orozco came with the wife ol
the secretary general of the revolution
Mrs. Jose Cordova, and was halted
with other immigrants at the interna
tional bridge. The immigration auth
orities declare she gave the name of
Mrs. Jesus Terrazas, and they could
not permit the passage into the TJni
ted States of women under assumed
names. She nnany was identified as
Mrs. Pascual Orozco, Jr., and crossed
to El Paso. Mrs. Orozco said she
fancied the American authorities migh
detain her in connection with her hus
band's revolutionary activity if eh
gave her own name.
"Americans have already begun to
return to Mexico. About 15,000 01
them had left, but they are coming
back now, especially to the capital ana
the large cities. Of course the eco
nomic situation of the country is not
what might be desired but it is hoped
that with the restoration of peace,
commerce and traae win reap tunes'
ponding benefits.

Big league Pitfhers Kail as Result of

Past Chancellors In Charge of Monday
Xlght K. of P. AVork.
New York, June 18. Officials of both
the National and American leagues
have begun an investigation of charges
that members of the New York and
Brooklyn teams have been playing
Sunday baseball here in semi-profes
sional teams under assumed names.
It Is alleged that from $100 to $250 is
regularly paid to the big team stars
for this service by semi-professional
teams here and in suburban towns. On
stveral occasions, it is said, star pitch
ers on the pay rolls of the local major
league clubs have worked on Sundays
for as much as $250, only to fail utterly
when called upon to enter the box the
next day by their regular employers.
One crack boxman, it Is alleged.
pitched a sixteen inning game on a
recent Sunday in a Hudson river town
in spite of the fact that it was his reg
ular turn to pitch on Monday. On an
other occasion, according to the inves
tigators, a star batter hired for $250
by a semi-professional club found that
the opposing team had a. pitcher and
catcher egually well known in organ
ized baseball. The recognition oh the
field was mutual, but in order to fool

Tommy Has Hammer Working
Oyertime Ji'ow.
(By Ed W. Smith.)
Las Vegas, N. M., June 18. Tommy
Ryan has definitely quit the Jim Flynn
camp at Montezuma partially quit
and partially "excused." Ryan ar.d
Flynn didn't hitch from the start and
the end was inevitable and perhaps
fortunate that it came so far ahead of
the big contest. Ryan save out a
statement to the effect that the whole
trouble was over financial matters.
It appears that when Ryan met
Jack Curley. Flynn's manager, in To
ronto, soon after the match was made.
Curlev had an offer of a purse of
$100,000 for the contest. He and
Ryan discussed It and Curley said if
that amount was secured for the fight
Ryan could get J3.000 for training
Flvnn. Since nothing like $100,000
was obtained for the contest, Curley
did not feel called upon to stick to
the original figure. He paid Ryan's
and Morrow's transportation here,
paid a month's rent on Tommy's quar
ters and gave him $100 for current
expenses. Ryan' wanted to know just
what ho wa? going to get and pressed
the matter. Curley told him finally
that it would depend upon what
Flvnn's end was. Ryan declined to
gamble that way and said he would
at once quit the camp.
Thougli Klynn and Ryan boxed al
most daily last week they never got
along well together, Ryan's brusk and
bullying manner being too much- to
jibe well with Flvnn's- present disposi
tion. Ryan kept telling Flynn what
Johnson would do to him unless he
(Flynn) did certain things and this

about it and the rupture was on for
So Tommy is going to take his
Michigan fighter, Howard Morrow, to
El Paso, Tex., for a bout there next
week with Jack Herrick. This is ths
bout that originally was to be staged
here July 3 but which was switchea
to the bull ring at Juarez, just across
the border because there was a $1,000
guarantee there.
Knocking Jim Xow
Directly Ryan had severed his con
nection with Flynn, the Syracuse man
began his ancient tactics of swinging
the hammer in a most violent manner.
though he told me three days ago that
he figured Flynn had a .royal chance
and that he was a powerful hitter and
a good, strong man who could take
a world of It and not wince. Ryan
switched about completely and began
to tell that Flynn didn't have the
ghost of a chance, etc.
As a. result of an astonishing change
in the weather here Jack Johnson did
not dare . go out into his al fresco
arena this afternoon, contenting him
self with a little shadow work inside
the house. He was on the road for
an extra two miles, doing fourteen
miles In all. After he got through
witb. that the scales showed the cham
pion to be down to 218 pounds.
Watson Burns, his chief adviser,
made the statement this morning that
he figures Johnson to be as good as
he ever was right today.
Flynn shifted his work a trifle, too,
doing no boxing but paying the usual
sharp attention to his road exercises. ;
The cold snap switched him and he '
decided like Johnson to make it a day
off from the old routine.
Several inquiries have come here
asking whether or not the Johnson
Flynn contest was to be stopped. No
body here knows a thing about, any
attempt made anywhere in the state
to interfere with the battle. Mayor
Taupert, one of those at the head of
affairs here has not heard a dissent
ing .word so far in the entire state.
