IT. Baseball hasn't been fanned out by the financial flur ryin fact, the national sport has come to bat stronger than ever, ac cording to the jobbers of base ball things. The total of orders for masks and mits, for bats and digbats of the diamond already has started zenith ward, like u sure-enough fly over the home-run fence. lit connection with this commercial aspect of tie coming season's sport, the big league rumors are flying thick and fast, like cushions from the grandstand at emotional cli maxes. Steinfeldfs new contract with Tresldent Murphy permits mi anxious public to relax, secure m knowing the waiuo inttelders of the World's Champ ion Cub team, will throw to Captain Chance on first base as threw to him laft year. For the White Sox team the signing of Nick Altrock has been hailed as convincing proof that the White Sox's hick is changed, particu larly as the contract has a temperance clause. The grand national all-Amer-ican team of professional players from 1S71 to 1907, now has been made up as follows: Spalding, pitcher; Kling, pitcher; Anson, first base; Barnes, second base; Steinfeldt, third base; Jennings, short stop; Kelley, left field; Duffy center field, and Keeler, right field. To the old time fan, who recalls John Clarkson's curves and was present when "Kelly came to bat,' these names suggest many alorious memories.

FANS' DREAMS REALIZED. Richmond polo fans who have been in doubt all season as to whether the Richmond aggregation of polo pellet pushers was of league class, will have a good chance to decide this question Wednesday night, when the strong Ma rion, O., polo team of the Ohio state league, will bo brought to this city b7 the Coliseum management for one game. The Marion team has several "old heads" in the lineup and is considered one of the strongest teams In the Ohio or Pennsylvania circuits. Its rushes are reported to be veritable whirl winds. Fans In Richmond have made sever al requests of the local management to bring the Ohio team to this city, but this is the first date that Marion has been fre to play outside the Ohio cir cuit. The team quickly agreed to play in Richmond when asked. Richmond will present her strongest lineup when Marion appears here and the game will be a battle royal from the first toot of the referee's whistle till the end of the third period, it is asserted. A monster crowd will un doubtedly greet the Ohio lads. There will be a. reserved seat sale for this game and the plat will open tomorrow. CITY BASEBALL LEAGUE PROBABLE An Effort Will Be Made to Put Such an Organization On Its Feet. THE PLAN IS PROPOSED. AN EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO GET EASTHAVEN TO JOIN AND GOOD SPORT IS ASSURED IF OR GANIZATION IS PERFECTED. An attempt is being made to organ ize a city base ball league for the coming season. It is the intention of the promoters to organize a league composed of four or six clubs, the games to be played on Saturday aft ernoons and holidays. In case of a six club league, it is proposed to try to induce Easthaven to enter as this will permit two games on the school ground diamond, as one city team is playing at Easthaven. The team west of the city will be forced to play all their games on their own diamond as all of the players are doctors and at tendants at the institution. There are many good amateur ball tossers in the city and good sport will undoubtedly result if the league is or ganized. If all applicants for franchises will send in their names to the Sporting Editor of the Palladium, a meeting of managers can be held and the most desirable clubs picked. All such com munications should be addressed to the Sporting Editor, Palladium, and marked "City League." A COLORED LEAGUE Would Be Composed of Strong Colored baseball Teams Of the State. WANT GIANTS TO JOIN. Charles Marshall, a well known col ored s.porting man of Indianapolis, is promoting a colored baseball league in this staie. and ho wonts Richmond in cluded in the circuit.

The first meeting of the promoters of the league was held yesterday at Indianapolis. Tha Giants' management can communicate with Marshall by addressing him care of The Freeman, Indianapolis. Ind.

EARLHAM IS EXPECTING TO GIVE THE METHODISTS THE BITTER PILL HANDED OUT TO THE QUAKERS RECENTLY. All the students at Earlham are eagerly looking forward to the basket ball game between De.Pauw and the Quakers in the Coliseum next Friday night. In the game with DtPauw at Greencastle three weeKs ago. DePauw trimmed Earlham to the tune of 2i to 11, but Earlham's team work and goal shooting have improved considerably since that date and the Quakers count on being the victors on this night at least. Coach Vail stated that the rea son of Earlham's defeat in the game three weeks ago, was not the superior ity of the Quakers' opponents, but the fact that the Earlham team had never played on a 'floor quite as small as that in the gym at Greencastle, and said also, that he had no doubt of the Quakers' ability to win the game on their own floor. In chapel this morning. President Kelly stated that the chapel hour would be shortened on one or two mornings of this week and the time given over to the boys to practice their yells. If rooters have anything to do with helping a team on to victory, the Quakers will not have to swallow the bitter pill of defeat this week. YOUTHFUL THIEVES WILL SERVE TERM R (Continued From Page One.) closely related to one of the most prominent families in Center township and that, unlike Ammerrnan, he has been reared well but never took ad vantago of it. Once the lad stole $20 from a kinsman, but the affair was hushed up. With Ammernian he stole catalpa seed and then sold it back to the owner. He was also connected with some chicken stealing affairs. Roy Hilbert was shown to have borne a good reputation up to the time he began associating with Ammerrnan. Hilbert is 22 years of age and the court thought he would be sufficiently punished by a jail sentence. "Dickey Rat" Thrine has never had any ad vantages and since a tender ago, has constantly been in trouble. He is an orphan and since a mere boy has been responsible to no one for his conduct. Young Newman is a farmer boy and was never in any trouble until one night last month when he went out on a chicken stealing exposition. Am merrnan and Savage will not be sent to the reformatory for several days, the court ordering that they be detain ed here to testify against Linting, the Centerville poultry dealer, who pur chased poultry stolen by the boys. Linting will be tried next week. MASONIC CALENDAR. Monday, Feb. 17. Richmond com mandry, No. 8 K. T. Special conclave work in Red Cross. Tuesday, Feb. 18. Richmond lodge, No. 196 F. & A. M.

Such was the theme of a discourse delivered Sunday afternoon at Grace M. E. church by Evangelist Tilmau Hobson, to a mass meeting of men that filled the auditorium. Some time ago in the city a Y. M. C. A address on the subject, "Drop It,' was delivered, and in contrast to that subject. Rev. Hobson chose the antl phrastic theme, "Pick It Up." According to Rev. Hobson no mem ber of one of the leading secret orders can, according to his vows, condemn the church, because both the church and the order are based on the same teachings and doctrines. The speaker pointed out tuat the lodge member and the church member were similarly pledged to the same truths and prin ciples, all founded on the bible. Con sequently the church member has no right to poke remarks at the lodge member or the lodge member at the church member. In fact, according to Rev. Hobson, they should stand shoul der to shoulder in the front ranks for civic righteousness. A lodge man is just as much of a hyp ocrite who disregards purity and sanctity in domestic and public life as thecliurch member who violates the same principles, he said. Beginning tonight, the remainder of the series of meetings will be held at First M. E. church, corner of Main and Fourteenth streets. SOME FIRST OCCASIONS. Cannon and small arms were intro duced in 1390. Spinning wheels came to the rescue of women in 1530. The first stereotyping 'was done In 1313 in New York. Shirts resembling those now worn were in use in 1S30. Phrenology, "discovered" by Franz Joseph Gall, a Viennese physician, iu 179t, became a so called science in 1S05. The first submarine telegraph wire in this country was from Governors island to the Battery in New York, laid in 1842. Double entry bookkeeping was first used in the mercantile cities of Italy, notably Venice and Florence, in the fifteenth century. Schwartz invented gunpowder in 1328. But Roger Bacon, a thirteenth century alchemist, gives a recipe for it in a work of his in 1270. Natural Wei la In Yucatan. Since Yucatan, where the Mayas built their strange fities. is a coral limestone formation, it would, says a writer in Records of the Past, hare been a barren desert but for its sub terranean livers and the cenotes, or water caverns, which give access to them. The Mayas noted the courses of the underground streams and built their towns round the cenotes. Many cenotes are now found surrounded by ruins aud give indications of the meth ods employed by the Mayas to reach their cool waters. In Uxmal a cenote about forty feet deep is inhabited by a peculiar species of fish. At Bolan chen there is a cenote having five open ings in the rocks at the bottom of the cavern. Ladders made by tying tree trunks together lead down a total dis tance of l.iuO feet, but the perpendic ular depth from the surface to the wa ter is not over 500 feet. The Mixture In Itonmania. Roumauia is inhabited by a bewilder ing variety of races, but whether of Greek. Slav or Teuton U- lineage, the modern Roumanian makes it a point of honor to claim descent from the colo nists whom Trajan planted in the con quered province of Dacia A. D. 107. Calling themselves Romuni aud their language Romunie, the proud citizens seldom craw out a legal document without some allusion to their founder, whom they style "the divine Trajan." The Roumanian language reflects the composition of the race and now but faintly suggests the language which Trajan spoke. Tennyson's Groffness. Apropos of Tennyson's gruffaess is a story repeated by the London Chroni cle. Tennyson, in his last days gave audience to an American, a friend of Longfellow and Ixwe'.l. who came armed with credential. "I hope you dnn't write." was the rautlnus old po et's first remark. "No, my lord, and I don't talk!" wns the swift reply. This response s-et Tennyson at his ease, and he at least -talked." to his guest's vast contentment. Flattered "Men.

MORSE ARRESTED LIKE A CCMMON (Continued From Pago One.) signed by a surety company, had been prepared. Mr. Morse was required to sign two obligations of ?10,0o each, and along with the representatives of the bonding company was put under oath to appear at any time his pres ence may be required. Mr. Britt stated that he had re quested Mr. Jerome to allow the attor neys to produce Mr. Morse in court to day, as he said had been done in the case of other well known men under indictment, but had been told that the public Interest demanded that the ex banker be placed under arrest as soon as the ship reached New York waters. Basis of the Indictments. The charge against Mr. Morse grows out of a note given to him by former Chief Justice Morgan J. O'Brien, of i.te appellate division of the supreme court. Judge O'Brien is said to have deposited three notes for 5100,000 each with Mr. Morse, in payment for a block of 1,000 shares of stock in the National Bank of North America. The notes were to be held three years and not discounted, accord.jg to Judge O'Brien, and at the end of three years he was to have the privilege of con summating or withdrawing from the bargain for the purchasi of stock. It is charged that Mr. Morse discounted one of these notes at the Mercantile -National bank, in which he formerly was a director, and that he represent ed to the bank that he was authorized to receive its check for the amount of u.e loans. It is further alleged that the check given to Mr. Morse was made payable to Judge O Brien and was cashed by Mr. Morse at the Na tional Bank of North America Morse signing Judge O'Brien's name "per C. W. Morse." It is the theory of the indictment that the check, never hav ing passed into the hands of O'Brien or his authorized agents, its'use by Mr. Morse constituted grand larceny from the Mercantine National Bank, title never having been passed from that in stitution.

Louis Landis was granted a di vorce from Grace Landis on the ground of adultery and desertion. He stated that at the present time Mrs. Landis was living with a man at Mun-J cie. Lola Harrison was granted a di vorce from Georgo Harrison on the ground of desertion. BRYAN GREETED BYT (Continued From Tage One.) would a speaker at a political gather ing. Mr. Bryan also said, in his usual dry-wit manner, seemingly without in tending to amuse, that when he was busy campaigning in iolitics and mak ing numerous speeches, he always took Sunday for a day of complete ret, but that now, when he is averag ing only two or three speeches daily through the week, he has sufficient time to give some attention to relig ious matters on Sunday. At times in his address the speaker grew quite facetious, particularly when he discussed the soundness of the Darwinian theory of the descent of man from monkey, but throughout his talk Christ, "The Prince of Pe ice," was kept uppermost. But few times did be so much as use the word "politics,-' and when he did it was only in comparing the political parties, plat forms to the platform of religion. Shake Commoner's Hand. At the close of Mr. Bryan's addicts and before he could get off the stage came a number on the program unan- ; nounced. when several hundred men, dspi-o the efforts of the ushers to I head them off. swarmed uion the plat - form to shake hands with the com moner. At th - conclusion of the meet ing Mr. Bryan turned to p-ctk to the men on the stage near him, and in an ; instant a score of hearers who were : seated on the stairwav to tho staep ! amde a rush to graap his hand. Oth-. ers passing out the doors changed their course and rushed for the stage. and before Mr. Bryan had greeted them all using both hands to hurry along matters, several hundred of his hearers had passed by him. utners wno naa left tne hail neara of theunanfmous t J of, the unannounced recepuoa within STORE the requirements of the pub patrons when they shall see and rushed through the door and down the aisles, but before they reach ed the stage they were stopped by ushers and turned back.

According to the program mapped out beforehand hy those interested la the coming of tne commoner ho wa to have reached Indianapolis about 10 o'clock, and several men prominent in. the democratic party were appointed to be at the station and escort Mr. Bryan to the home of John V. Kern, where ho was entertained until t!m for theafternoon meeting. But Mr. Bryan, by what might be called being too previous, upset this carefully arranged plan. He rolled In about 8 o'clock, while several of th members of the reception committee still were in the land of dreams. When the train bearing the distin guished Nebraskau steamed In under the train sheds at Union Station and stopped a tall, heavy figure, clad la long black overcoat and black crush hat and carrying one or two artlolea of baggage, alighted, looked aroiiDd, saw no welcoming hands extended, started, looked surprised, then disap pointed, and finally chuckling to him self, William Jennings Bryan, twice candidate for the presidency of the United States and likely to bo a third time, wended his way up Illinois street alone. When he reached the Grand hotel Mr. Bryan turned in, passed through the swinging doors just as would any ordinary guest, handed bis luggage to an ever-present porter, strode up to) the desk and calmly wrote 'W J. Bry- 1 an, Lincoln. Neb." Standing near by the desk was An drew FYklpr. a. hrnthor rf MttcA TYilov j democratic gtate committeeman from the Ninth district and he imruedlatelr recognized the hotel's distinguished guest. Hastening up to Mr. Bryan, Mr. Foley made himself known. Inquir ed anxiously about the reception com mittee, and then enjoyed a hearty laugh witb the commoner over the dis arrangement of tho plana. Mr. Foley at once communicated with several of Mr. Bryan's Indianapolis friends, and in a short time the reception commit- tee. somewhat tardy, but none the less anxious to welcome Mr. Bryan, was on hand, apologizing and greeting la ! the same breath. !
