Three Races in Succession Won
by The Columbia,
UPTON A TRUE SPORTSMAN.
New York, Oct. 7. With victory flags
floating from her towering mastheads
and the ends of her spreaders in honor
of her concluding and triumph in the
cup races of 1901, the gallant sloop
Columbia returned to her anchorage
under the escort of the entire excursion
fleet. She completed her defense of
the honored trophy in another stirring
race with the Shamrock II over a lee
ward and windward race of 30 miles,
crossing the finish line two seconds
behind her antagonist but winning on
the time allowance conceded by Lip
ton's boat by 41 seconds. And plucky
Sir Thomas Upton, standing on the
bridge of the Erin led his guests in
three hearty hurrahs for the successful
defender. "She is a better boat," he
said, "and she deserves to be cheered,
"If there had been any possibility of
choice in the matter I believe the
yacht club would have given me the
race."
The usual pandemonium that attends
the final Yankee victory in a cup con
test followed. Whistles, sirens, bells,
bands and cheers united in a grand
ehorus of jollification.
. After the Columbia had hauled down
her sails and set her victory flag, the
excursion boats crossed alongside to
cheer the Yankee sailors and the win
ning skippers. Nor did they forget
either Lipton or his gallant craft. In
turn the crowded steamers ran along
side the Shamrock and Grin and the
vanquished received almost as much
honor as the victor. And thus with
felicitations all around, the twelfth
6erics of races for the cup, which the
schooner America brought over fifty
years ago ended with the best of feel
ing. While taking his defeat gamely, Sir
Thomas Lipton made no attempt to
conceal the honest disappointment
when he talked about the races at
night on the Erin.

Topeka, Oct. 2. The attorneys for
John Collins have in their possession

lins woke up and they had to kill him.

STORY OF AN ATTACK
Upon the Guard at the Canton ' Ceme
. tery.
Canton, Ohio, Oct, ,5. Private De
prend. Company C,; Fourteenth U. S.
Infantry on duty in guarding the vault
containing the remains of President
McKinley, related the particulars of
an attack upon himself during the
night. At first all the commissioned
officers and the members of the com
pany generally accepted Deprend's
story fully, but when morning came
and no evidence of a struggle could be
found, only one of the commissioned
officers adhered to the belief. "He said:
"It was the real thing; it was prompted
by the pure cussedness of some people
who thought to bring reproach upon
the nation by doing damage to the
resting place of the dead president." '
All the men who were talked with
expressed the belief that Private De
prend acted in good faith and that he
related only what he believed to be
the real circumstances. Captain Biddle
authorized this statement:
"I think the sentinel deceived him
self on the occurrence. I do not think
an actual occurrence as related by him
occurred. When daylight came there
was no evidence found of a struggle."

Austria-Hungary Election.
Budapest, Oct. 4. Although the
newspapers here published congratu
latory articles on the orderliness and
fairness of the parliamentary general
elections, which resulted in the return
of a large liberal majority of the gov
ernment, the fact remains that there
were serious encounters in many dis
tricts, necessitating military interven
tion during which troops fired and
killed or wounded numbers of people.
The government has been obliged to
declare some of the results invalid ow
ing to the coersive measures.

Wins By Two Minutes And Fifty
two Seconds. .
WITHOUT THE EXTRA SECONDS
New York, Oct. 5. In a glorious,
wholesail breeze which heeled the big
cup contestants down until their lee
rails were awash in the foaming seas,
the Columbia beat the Shamrock II,
over a triangular course of 30 miles by
two minutes and fifty-two seconds
actual time. With the forty-three sec
onds which the Irish sloop must allow
the American boat on account of her
large sail plan, the Columbia won the'
second race of the series by three min
utes and thirty-five seconds. The fast-
est race ever sailed in a cup contest, it
was not only a royal struggle from a
spectacular point of view, but it was
absolutely decisive as to the merits of
the two racing machines. There is not
a yachting sharp who witnessed the
race who is not firmly convinced that
the defender is the abler boat, blow
high or blow low, bearing, reaching or
running, and that Sir Thomas and his
merry British tars are doomed to return
home empty-handed.
Again the ancient piece of silver
which was brought across the western
ocean fifty years ago is safe. Again
American supremacy in marine archi
tecture has been vindicated. Sir Thom
as has been wishing for a breeze that
bury Shamrock '8 lee rail, and he had
it, just as he had a similar breeze in
the concluding race two years ago,
when Columbia, in a driving finish,
beat the first Shamrock over six min
utes. Heavy Deposits.
Wichita, Oct. 7. The three national
banks of this city have issued state
ments of their condition on September

crease over their statement of July 15
last of 8433,287. Since April 24 last,
each bank has increased its deposits
over 8225,000. The banks of this city
are expected to increase their deposits
at this time of year, but not to such an
amount as is shown in the statements.
The banks of this city are supplying all
southern Kansas and Oklahoma with
currency and each da y are shipping out
large sums of money.
Irish United League.
Dublin, Oct. 5. At a meeting of the
United Irish league in Dublin at which
the lord mayor of Dublin presided, a
letter was read from William O'Brien,
M. P., who expressed a hope that "if
the King visits Ireland next year the
league will arouse a spirit which will
convince His Majesty that he has come
among a people discontented and dis
affected to the core, only needing arms
and the training of the Boers to testify
to their hatred of England's rule with
n eloquence equal to that of the un
sonquered South African republics."
A Church Burned.
Wichita, Oct. 7. The Endeavor Pres
byterian church, of this city, was

Discharged for Cause
Nashville, Tenn., Oct 5.--Street car
service in Nashville is almost at a
standstill, 200 of the 250 employes of
the National Street Railway company
having been discharged. - The situation
is the result of a meeting at which the
men joined the Amalgamated Associa

positions taken.
Foot More Kansas Bank.
Topeka, Oct 2. Four new banks will
be installed by Bank Commissioner Al

Evan W1U 8tay.
Washington, Oct. 1. H. Clay Evans
will not be removed from the position
of Commissioner of Pensions. At least
this is the intimation of President
Roosevelt in answer to the importuni
ties of the friends of ex-Congressman
Peters of KaDsas to appoint Peters to
the position after first removing Evans.
President Roosevelt says he will not
remove Evans because he is satisfied
that it was never the intentisn of the
late President McKinley to take such
action.
II ME III
Likely to be a Sympathy Strike
Throughout the District. . .
BARRETT THE OBSTRUCTION.
Weir City, Oct 7. At a miners' mass
meeting the employes of the Barrett
mines were ordered on a strike to take
effect today. The meeting was pre
sided over by District President George
Richardson, of the United Mine Work
ers of America, who stated that the
istrike question would be settled by vote
of the Barrett employes present This
was promptly overruled by the radical
element, who took the ground that the
district board, sitting at Pittsburg, had
ordered the strike and there was no
option in the matter. A resolution was
finally introduced calling the men out
When put to a vote only fourteen
hands were up in support of the reso
lution and none opposed. The diffi
culty arises from the refusal of W. H.
Barrett to recognize the union. He
operates two Kansas and Texas mines
under a lease, his own mine, the Nor
ton, No. 1, at Scammon, and is a
partner in W. H. Barrett fe Co.'s No. 1
here. As a handle to work on among
the men, the union took the price paid
for machine coal at mine No. 49 and
the Nation shaft, the only machine
mines in the state.
At the district conference in August
the union signed a contract with the
other operators who have no machine
mines, in which the price for machine
coal was raised 13,'j cents over the
price established for the district for the
two Barrett mines using machines.
Now they call the employes of these
mines scabs, and have called out the
men at all shafts in which Barrett is
interested. It is very doubtful if the
union will be able to shut these mines
down, as they have some of the best
work in the district and -the em
ployes are satisfied. It is very likely
that these mines will continue to run
with a reduced force, and the result
will be a general sympathy strike
throughout' the district.
A Inng Enchra Game.
Wichita, Oct 5. William : Crimble
of Geuda Springs while here met a
Choctaw Indian he had not seen since
1861 10 years. The Indian, who is
civilized, came up behind him and
whispered in his ear: "Bill, let's finish
the game of euchre." It seems they
were playing a game in 1861 when they
were disturbed, and have not met since
until this event Mr. Crimble accom
modated his Indian friend. They be
gan just where they left off, and Mr.
Crimble skinned him in that and three
other games in succession.

ton showed himself the thorough sports
man he is.

against us. But in my own heart I am
just as hopeful as I was this morning,
for I feel that if I only have a wind I
am all right . It was a fair and square
race, no fluke, but itj was not Shrmrock's
day. We want a breeze that will put
that deck six inches under water and
then you will see a race. Be sore of
one thing- I was licked fairly today.
HARD LINES FOR MINERS.
Interior Department Hold np all Mlner
'. i art Lease In Creek Nation.
: Washington,' Oct 3. The Interior
Department has handed down a decis
ion holding np all mineral leases in the
Creek Nation thus far negotiated. The
decision is a severe, blow to capitalists
in St Louis and other western cities
who-have invested large sums of money
in the development of oil and coal
fields in the Nation. .
Prior to the enactment of the Creek
treaty oil and coal leases had been
secured and large sums of money spent
in developing coal and oil properties.
A number of valuable coal mines are
now in operation in the vicinity of Red
Fork, and oil wells are being sunk in
the same locality. The operations at
present are going on nnder contracts'
made with members of the nation who
have made their selections. These
selections, however, have not been ap
proved by the Dawes commission, and
probably will not be for six months to
come. . Patents to the allottees will be
issued some time within the next year,
but until this occurs no individual
leases for the mining of coal and oil
are of any validity whatever.
The Government's Side of Story.
London, Oct 4. "We learn on very
high authority," says the Daily Chron
icle, "that a sudden and complete
.collapse of Boer resistance and the
speedy termination of the war with
South Africa are anticipated. The
attacks on Forts Italia and Meodwill .
and other recent engagements are re
garded as the last desperate efforts of
men who are wearied by the struggle
and tired of being hunted.
"Therefore, beyon.d sending drafts
to compensate for losses by casualties
and disease, there is no intention' to
dispatch further reinforcements or to
employ Indian troops for guarding th6
lines of communication.'

Another Race Called off.
New York, Oct. 3. The attempt to
sail the second of the present series of
international yacht races for the blue
ribbon of the sea proved a dismal fail
ure. Between 25,000 and 30,000 people!
who crowded the pleasure fleet off
Sandy nook lightship in the hope of
seeing a repetition of the thrilling sport
witnessed instead more of a drifting
match than a race. The wind was ex
ceedingly light and variable, and at
time a complete calm. The Shamrock
had the better of what sailing was done.

London, Oct 7. Arrangements are
being made by the leading American

rial should be in the nature of a bust
