The weather man consulted ; tb Three Fates and they told: him that the most humiliating defeat they had ever received would be administered to Jimmy Jackson and his Wolves If they played the Savages this after noon. So the weather man had com passion upon them and induced Jupi ter Pluvius to make the heavens weep, causing; the postponement of the first Topeka meeting of the two teams and bringing disappointment to hundreds of local fans. , ' t The Wolves came in from St. Josepn at 11:36 o'clock this morning, and de spite the poor showing they have been making Jackson and Roaring Bill Rappe forced out their bold faces and handed out the "dope" with a free hand. "It's too bad it rained." Jimmy said. "Now we will only have a chance to beat you two games instead of three. It's too bad." He Side Steps. However, Jackson was given his chance a short time later when Savage requested a doubleheader for Sunday, but Sir James promptly refused the proffered opportunity. Jackson would not budge from his stand against this, despite the efforts of the local management, and Savage was asked if he knew why the Wolves were sidestepping. He said he did not, but that it appeared to him that Jack son had something in his throat, that was choking him. Later Savage put in a long distance call for President Ebrlght of the Wichita club, asking for the doubleheader in spite of Jack son's objections, but at the time of ge ing to press he had not been able to talk to the Wichita magnate. Jackson maintained his bombastic optimism w hen questioned regarding the strength or his team. "I don't know where we will finish," he said, "hut you can bet we will finish ahead of Topeka.

Y May 12. Theo dore Roosevelt last night swept aside all doubt as to his attitude toward the presidential nomination. v He is in the fight to the finish. In a recent letter to Colonel Roose velU Guy Emerson, national secretary of the Roosevelt Nonpartisan 4eague, saijfc.. - "The platform that is absolutely vital in our opinion for the safety of the country during the four momen tous years which lie ahead is the plat form strongly stated in your recent Chicago speech. We believe that you are the only man now available who can carry that platform into effect and who at the same time has any chance of being elected." In his reply. Colonel Roosevelt once more outlines the principles of patriot ism 'and preparedness which he has declared to be the dominant issues, and says: "Your league emphasizes its devo tion to these principles and supports me only as representing the principles'. This is emphatically the proper atti tude to take; and because this is your attitude and..because you are working in this spirit, I very earnestly approve your work." Brushes Away Doubt. It can be said with certainty that behind this declaration is a plain pur pose of dissipating all rumors as to Colonel Roosevelt's attitude toward other candidates for the presidential nomination at Chicago and of dispell ing all doubt as to his position in the fight.. He is a candidate on the platform which he has outlined. He will remain in the fight until the issue has been decided. With this declaration a vig orous campaign is inaugurated which will be waged with the utmost vigor until 'the tickets have been named at Chicago one month hence.

The wind carried fire brands from this burning structure diagonally across the corner to the four story Kuntz block which is threatened with destruction. If this building goes the fire may spread further west into the very heart of the business district.

Mav 12. By Wireless to Sayville. "The Austro-Hunjrarian passenger steamer Dubrovnik has been torpedoed and sunk by an enemy submarine in the Adriatic." says an Overseas News agency announcement today. "The Dubrovnik was not armed and was torpedied without any waminsr whatever." An official dispatch from Home yes terday announced that an Austrian transport was sunk in the lower Ad riatic by a French submarine. This is the only torpedoing that. has been "mentioned from Rome for several days. It is possible that the vessel tor pedoed and declared by the Austrians to be a passenger liner, is the same ship which the Italian government says was carrying supplies. The Dubrovnik was a steel screw steamer, displacing 4,235 tons, 380 feet long, with a 49 foot beam. She was built in 1912 and registered at the port oi ftogusa. SENDS BIG MEX ARMY NORTH TO BORDER STATES Orders 10,000 Men to Chihua hua and Coahuila. Obregon Declares Motive Is to Round Up Bandits. AMADOR SEES SETTLEMENT He Will Conduct Next Diplo- matic Step With U. S. American Forces Withdraw North to Namiquipa. El Paso. Tex., May 12. Juan X. Amador, sub-secretary of foreign af fairs of the de facto government, who participated in the conference with General Obregon, called on General Scott today and reiterated to him as surances that such troop dispositions as were necessary to restore and main tain order along the northern frontier already had been ordered. General Obregon, who will remain for a few days at Chihuahua, has di rected General Trevino to send Into the states of Chihuahua and Coahuila 10,000 men. These forces will be taken from Torreon, San Pedro and other points in the southern part of Coahuila. Immediate occupation of the district around Parral has been ordered and what the Mexicans regard as an adequate force will be dispatch ed to the Big Bend country and every effort made to run down the bandits and rescue J. Demer, who was cap tured in the Glenn Springs and Bo quillas raid. General Scott previously had assured General Obregon and Mr. Amador that the withdrawal of the American troops from the district be low Namiquipa already had begun and Mr. Amador asserted that this dis trict would be controlled without loss of time by the Mexican forces. Amador a Real Optimist. Mr. Amador expected to leave to night for Mexico City, where he will have an important role as sub-secre tary of foreign affairs In the negotia tions that have reverted to the foreign offices of the two governments. To newspaper men he insisted he had no doubt of an amicable adjust ment at an early date. He explained that the questions .involved in . the protocol governing the mutual agree ment for the crossing of troops into one and the other countries must be the basis of these negotiations . al though the withdrawal of the Ameri can troops stiplated in Carranza's note of Am-il 12 must also be consiaerea. Mr. Amador did not regard this, how ever, as an insurmountable obstacle to a successful conclusion of the diplo matic negotiations. "And you may be certain," said Amador, "that the danger of a con flict between Mexico troops and Amer ican soldiers pending these negotia tions does not exist." Frars C. S. Might Start It. Mr. Amador emphasized the word "troops," explaining that it was quite possible to be expected that any ir responsible band of armed men might attack American troops at any time but that General Obregon, General Trevino and other high officers of f i rva n -ra ' o nrmv hnVA JMloh Control over their men that a move by govern- ment forces against the Americans was out of the question. General Obregon's army in Sonora will remain there for the present, ac cording to Mr. Amador, although he said a request would probably be made later for the, passage of a portion of the troops from Sonora eastward, either through American territory or through the American line of com munication. At present, he said, neither Scott nor Obregon regarded it wise, however, to send the Mexican troops across the American lines. "ffot because we fear that our troops would cause a conflict," said Mr. Amador, "so much as we fear that they might be attacked by your troops." Baker Con(rratnlats Conferees. At this Mr. Amador turned his head and smiled at General Scott. Secre tary of War Baker today sent to Gen erals Scott and Funston congratula tory telegrams on the manner in which they had conducted the negotiations with the Mexican conferees.
