THE ItICII3IOXl PAL LADIU3I AAI SUX-TEIiEGRA3I. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 190S. QUAKERS REGULARLY SPANKED THIS YEAR Football Season a Failure So Far as E.arlham College Is Concerned. ODDS FAVOR DE PAUW. METHODISTS SHOULD HAVE LIT TLE TROUBLE IN TROUNCING LOCAL COLLEGE TEAM SEVER AL PLAYERS OUT. By Tort. Last Saturday when the doleful re-t Bults of the Rose-Earlhara encounter were flashed to-Richmond, the cham pionship dreams of Earlham complete ly evaporated. This season Earlham has been rig orously, religiously and regularly spanked by all her opponents with the exception of, one tank college its name at present escapes us located somewhere, in the Ohio corn belt. The Quakers season closes Saturday of this week when they meet their an cient rival, DePauw, at Reid field. De Pauw has an exceptionally strong team this year and the odds are about 10 to 2 she will contribute another can to Earlham's already large sea son's collection. Earlham has been exceedingly un fortunate this season, luck having broken hably for its warriors at every I turn. Right at the kick off of the season three or four of the veterans, who were depended upon to be the mainstays around which the team was to have been built, were forced to join the arnica souad and since then the majority of the best players have been constantly in dry dock. Perhaps Larrance has been missed more than any of the regulars. Had he been able to play at quarterback the team would have bad the services of a capable, dashing field general. In his absence his place has not been filled by a satisfactory substitute and the result has been that the Quakers have gone through game after game like a ship In a storm without a rud der. The end positions have been weak nearly all season. At the start the Quakers bad a brace of ends, Hancock and Gaston, the equals of any in the state. Hancock was forced to retire with a bad knee and Gaston was laid off for failure to keep up In his stud ies. The loss of these two men alone weakened the-team 25 per cent, then the team was further crippled by Cap tain Harrell's forced retirement. WILL GO HALF WAY Peterson Will Not Wrestle Defensive Against Olson. on CONFIDENT OF VICTORY. By Tort. C. Peterson, who Is matched to wrestle Charley Olson at the coliseum Thursday night, writes the following to the Palladium: "As I am matched to wrestle Olson on the 12th inst. in ydur city, and knowing he is a man who Is able to defend his title of light heavyweight champion of American, I fully realize that I have to be in rood condition on the night of our contest, r-nd I assure you that I am doing everything to be in condition, and able to, give him the hardest tustlo he ever had. ' We are about the same weight, and as he has agreed to throw me threo times in 75 minutes, I am of the opinion that he has undertaken something he will not be able to carry through, for I really think there Is not a man in America that can throw me three times In that length of time, especially so when I have a chance to go on the defensive, but I don't Intend to do anything of that aorL It is my intention to meet him 'halfway, and I am sure the peo ple of Richmond will see a contest, such as they never have seen before. I have wrestled for over ten years, have held the championship of the Pacific Coast and British Columbia for eight years, so I am not afraid of Olson, having much the best of me." We are also in receipt of a letter from Bob Manogoff, the Turk, and as near as we have been able to decipher his script, we think he wants another match with Olson. Boy says some thing about having $2."o to bet that Olson can't throw him again. " At the present time the Turk is In Chicago. It is not probable that Olson will take him on again. , CITY BASKETBALL ! LEAGUE PROBABLE Gamp.s May Be Played Y. M. C.A. at A city basketball league is proposed for this winter.' It is not expected the Y. M. C. A. will endeavor to select a team this season. It is probable the league will be made a six or eight team affair. Games will be played under the supervision of the T. M. C. A. and at the gymnasium.

A est case as to whether the county local option law rendered void the remon strance feature of the Moore law prob ably will be instituted here. James McCormick, one of the saloonmen de posed by remonstrance In Henry town ship, which closed his place about a month ago, has given formal notice that he will apply to the county com-; missloners at their December session for a saloon license. McCormick's application notice is very carefully worded, so as to com ply with the law in every respect. The room in which he proposed to open a bar is in the Ward Block, and formerly was occupied by a saloon owned by Andrew H. Ward, now in business in Indianapolis. The application is made despite the remonstrance is in effect here and in Henry township, and under its provis ions the last saloon has not yet closed and will not close until next month. The remonstrance became effective last Thanksgiving day, hence will not cease to be effective until Thanksgiv ing day, 1909. McCormick, it is understood, Is to be assisted in the test by other- saloon men of this city, and possibly several outsiders where similar conditions pre vail and where the outcome would have the same effect. It is contended the county option law repealed the Moore law, and that when this law died, the remonstrance secured under it also expired. McCormick filed his application no tice with a local newspaper, and ex pects to be heard, by the commission ers before there js time to hold an election under the local option law. HALE'S INTERVIEW WITH KAISER FOR CENTURY KILLED (Continued From Page One.) managing editor of one of the largest Philadelphia newspapers. BERLIN PRESS SHY. Independent Papers Indulge in Sar casm. I Berlin, Nov. 9. Obviously in re sponse to pressure from official quar ters the Berlin press is almost univer sally silent Jn reference to the sup pressed account of the interview with the kaiser by William Bayard Hale, which the Century magazine was to have published in its December issue. Only three journals, which boast ut ter independence of "inspired" influ ence, mention the incident The Tageblatt publishes a cable gram from its New York correspon dent directly contradicting the assur ance given by the foreign office last night that no pressure was brought to bear by the German government The correspondent asserts that the govern ment actually "resorted to extremes in order to avoid warlike develop ments." The socialist Vorwaerts asks sar castically who Is going to reimburse the Century for its destroyed plates and whether the government perhaps has a secret fund for use upon such occasions. The democratic Morgenpost declares it is a genuine piece of good fortune that the Interview was "killed." The incident is certain to figure In Tuesday's debate in the relchstag and be adduced by various speakers as a fresh evidence of the necessity of con stitutional safeguards against "imper ial indiscretions." WIFE LED TAFT INTO POLITICAL ARENA SHE SAYS (Continued from Page One) Taft, brightening up. "Indeed I do. I have studied the situation gravely, and I think I understand it well. Noth ing in the whole campaign so pleased me as the compliment paid Mr. Taft by the gain in Republican votes In Virginia and other Southern states.

Of course, all bets are off when the 1909 season opens. Esthetic tendencies of Pitcher Har ry Coveleskie, the Giant buster, do not deter him from working in a mine at Shenandoah, Pa., during the off sea son.

It is probable that Charley Taft the mention of his name here al ways brings forth a smile and a word of good feeling the younger member of the family, will eat Ma Thanksgiv ing dinner with his parents. AN EPISODE OF WAR. The Only Coward Evans Ever Saw In the Naval Service. After Admiral Evans had been so grievously wounded In the attack on Fort Fisher during the civil war he was picked up by a marine named Wasmouth and carried Into compara tive shelter. Wasmouth was killed a few minutes later. Evans' own ac count continues: "After Wasmouth was killed I soon fell asleep, and when I awoke it was some time before I could recall my surroundings. The tide had come in, and the hole in which I was lying was nearly full of water, which had about covered me and was trickling into my ears. I could see a monitor firing and appar ently very near, and the thought came to me that I could swim off to her If I only had a bit of plank or driftwood., but this I could not get It was plain) enough that I should soon be drowned; like a rat in a bole unless I managed to get out somehow. Dead and wound ed men were lying about in ghastly piles, but no one to lend me a helping hand. By this time I could not use my legs in any way, and when I dug my hands into the sides of my prison and tried to pull myself out the sand gave way and left me still lying In the water. Finally I made a strong effort and rolled myself sideways out of the hole. "WhenI got out I saw a marine a short distance away nicely covered by a pile of sand and firing away deliber ately at the fort. I called to him to pull me In behind his bar of sand, but he declined on the ground that the fire was too sharp for him to expose him self. I persuaded him with my re volver to change his mind, and in two seconds he had me In a place of safe tythat is to say. safe by a small mar gin, for when he fired the Confederate bullets would snip the sand within a few Inches of our heads. If the ma rine had known that my revolver was soaking wet and could not possibly be j fired I suppose I would have been buried the next morning, as many oth er poor fellows were. As soon as 1 could reach some cartridges from a dead sailor lying near me I loaded my revolver, thinking it might be useful before the job was finished. "When I was Jerked in behind this pile of sand I landed across the body of the only coward I ever saw in the naval service. At first I was not con- scious that there was a man under me, so completely had he worked himself into the sand. He was actually below the surface of the ground. The moni tors were firing over ns, and as a shell came roaring by he pulled his knees up to his chin, which hurt me, as it Jostled my broken legs. I said: 'Hello! Are you wounded?" 'No, sir, he replied; 'I am afraid to move." 'All right, then,' I said, "keep quiet and don't hurt my legs again.' The next shell that came over he did the same thing and the next notwithstanding my repeated cau tions. So I tapped him between the eyes with the butt of my revolver, and he was quiet after that" The Glove on the Pole. A quaint custom in an English town, Honiton, is "proclaiming the fair." The town obtained the grant of a fair from the lord of the manor so long ago a 1257. and the fair still retains some ol the picturesque characteristics of by gone days. The town crier, dressed in picturesque uniform and carrying a pole decorated with gay flowers and surmounted by a large gilt model of a gloved hand, publicly announces the opening of the fair, as follows: "Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! The fair's begun, the glove is up. No man can be arrested ! till the glove is taken down. Hoi coins are then thrown among the chil dren. The pole and glove remains dis played until the end of the fair. How Hammer of Death Struck James. The old parish church of Plumstead Is probably at least 1,000 years old. The picturesque churchyard, a cher ished haunt of the poet Bloomfield during his visits to Shooters Hill, con tains a delightfully choice "derange ment of epitaphs. One of these on "Master James Darling, aged 10, teaches a lesson of moderation during the cherry season to the youth of othei places besides Plumstead. Speaking from his tombstone. Master Darllnf exclaims: The hammer of death was give to mm For eating the cherries off the tree. Westminster fiaiettfc St S TO ERECT CHURCH Funds Will Be Solicited Begin ning About the First of Next Year. THE DESIGN IS SELECTED. WILL BE GOTHIC, AND BEAUTI FUL IN SIMPLICITY MAGAZINE NOW ISSUED FOR LOCAL CON GREGATION. In the November number of fit. Mary's Parish Monthly, the second is sue of this excellent periodical, a cut is shown of the proposed St. Mary's Catholic church. Under the cut there is a line which reads "Is it Worth an Effort?" The design was prepared by a Louisville, Ky., firm of archi- tects. The style is Gothic and beau- tlful in its simplicity. The cut shows stone and the front ornamented with ten beautiful stone pillars. The usu al steeple is conspicuous by its ab sence. Father Thomas A. Hoffman, assist ant rector of St. Mary's church, states that no definite plans for the con struction of the new church building ! have yet been completed, but he thinks preliminary work to raise a building fund will be started the first of next year. About four years ago the church bought considerable prop erty surrounding the present church building and the school building, North Seventh and A streets, at an approximate expense of $20,000. Father Hoffman states that this debt has been nearly all paid off and that as soon as the entire indebtedness has been wiped out, plans will then be formulated for raising funds to erect i the new church, which will undoubt edly be one of the most beautiful structures of its kind in the state. Magazine Interesting. The monthly magazine that St. Mary's church is putting out, is In ev ery sense a "live wire." Every arti cle appearing in the November Issue is of the utmost interest to the church members. The editorials are bright and crisp. One of the editorial para graphs reads as follows: "Who is thej wealthy Catholic in middle north islej ivho gives a nlckle in the envelope col- j ectlon? Watch and see.

Contests in four counties in the First district are to be started by the defeated republi can county officials to get a recount and reinspectlon of republican ballots thrown out in Tuesday's election. It ls hoped by Congressman Foster that recount In Posey, Spencer, Warrick and Gibson counties will show enough protested ballots were thrown out by democratic election boards to over come the eighty-nine plurality credit ed to Mayor Boehne (Dem.) candidate for congress. It was officially announced by friends of Congressman Foster that he hopes to win out yet over Mayor Boehne and to carry his case before the congressional committee. In or der to make a strong case, the repub licans are proceeding against demo cratic workerst who are alleged to have Intimidated voters on. election day. Tov this end the republican county commissioners today revoked the saloon license of George Eckstein, upon affidavits made by a nephew of Congressman Foster that Eckstein fought a colored man away from the polls.

Morse Denied the Privilege of Seeing Rela tives Sunday. NO FAVORS SHOWN HIM. New York, Nov. 9. Charles W. Morse, former banker and ice king, who is confined in the Tombs prison pending an appeal from his fifteen years' sentence, spent a quiet Sunday. He didn't express a desire to attend the regular Sunday service held in the prison and spent most of his day smoking. At other times he sat on the side of his couch with his face burled in his hands as though deep in thought Not a single person, other than the keeper, spoke to him all day. On Sunday visitors are not permitted in the prison and even his counsel, Mr. Ldttlefield, was denied an audi ence with the prisoner. "We show no favors her!. said Warden Flynn. "Morse is no more to us that any other." Members of Morse's family were told Saturday it would be useless for them to attempt to see him on Sun day, so none of them came. The prisoner awakened at -7 o'clock and soon after was handed breakfast consisting of ham and eggs and coffee. After he had finished that he had a rarebit He ate heartily and then smoked. At dinner time he had beef, potatoes and bread. For a time he paced the narrow limits of his cell, but looked up as keepers passed the door. He had several papers, but did not manifest much interest in the news. RICHMOND DISTRICT MiSSIOIKONVENTION Women of M. E. Church Meet At Dunkirk.

Young W. S. Gilbert's Brief Interview WithChsrles Kean. At the early age of fifteen, accord ing to the author of a biography of Sir W. S. Gilbert, the future dramatist showed his theatrical bias to his own undoing. Enraptured with a splendid per formance of "The Corslcan Brothers" at the Princess theater, then under - the management of Charles Kean, ' younjr Gilbert packed up a few clothes In a hand bag and actually succeeded In making an entrance to the theater j with a view to going on the stage, i Greatly elated at receiving the mes . sage that Kean would see him in his room, the boy lost courage when he was face to face with the great actor. "So you would like to go on the stage?" said Kean. "Yes, sir, replied Master Gilbert, trembling In every limb. "What's your name?" The boy's imagination failed him at a critical moment in bis life. "Gil bert," he faltered, seeking refnge In the truth. "Gilbert, Gllbertr reiterated Kean. with a sharp glance at the embar rassed boy. "Are yoa the son of my old friend. William Gilbert?" T-es."

The theft of a horse and burgy be longing to Jesse Starr, who resides northwest of the city, has been re ported to the police. Starr visited friends at Williamsburg last evening and when ready to take his departure found his horse and buggy missing. The police are inclined to believe some one' maliciously turned the horse loose, although It may have been sto len. The horse and rig were located at Economy this afternoon- . Net Stumped. Once, when the renowned Mrs. Sid dons was playing In the Theater Roy al, Dublin, she, as Lady Macbeth came to that part where a drum should sound and she exclaims: "A drum I A drum! Macbeth doth corner There was some difficulty or neglect In obtaining the necessary Instrument, and to her amazement a trumpet Bounded. She Immediately saw how absurd It would be to say "drum" while the well known sound of the trumpet met the ears of the vast audience. So she said: "A trumpet! ;A trumpet!" then stopped short, not knowing how to rhyme It, when a voice from the gal-! lery called out, "Macbeth doth stump ' It!" at which the house broke out Into one peal of laughter and applause, and the tragedienne advanced to the footlights and bowed her acknowledg ment for the relief. Average Length of Life. The man who lives till he is more than a century old and the child who dies in infancy are alike Included In the law of .averages. They balance each other's chances, as it were. Of 100,000 people living at the age of ten only 05.614 will live to the age of ' twenty-one. only 82.284 will be living at forty, only forty-nine will be living at ninety-six and only nine at ninety seven. At thirty the average man may take it that he has under thirty-five years to live, at forty under twenty eight years, at fifty under twenty-one years and at sixty under fourteen years. In each and all of these cases bow he lives will determine whether he will have a longer life or a shorter life, but the average will Infallibly work out within a space of ninety years.

Danger In the Chill That Comes With the Fall of Night, Few people who visit Denver realize that it is located only a few feet short of a mile above the sea level. At such altitudes the climate Is always treach erous. The midday sun may be broil ing hot, bat after dark the air Is soon chilled and one Is liable to contract a cold. Several of the Spanish cities stand upon the crests of tall blUe, where such climatic changes occur after nightfall. When, as a boy at the grand opera, I saw Spaniards In "Carmen or "The Barber of Seville" toss their long cloaka or capes about tbHr faces I assumed that the act was Intended to disguise them to hide their faces. Nothing of the sort. The Spaniard, like the Italian, of the Alpine regions, always covers his month after sun down to minimize danger to his lungs from the night air. Curiously the women haven't any fear of the chill that follows the dark ness. They may be seen In low cut bodices at all hoars of the evening la the cafes, at balls and on the streets. The men, however, are In terror of cold night winds. Pneumonia and tu berculosis carry off a great many vic tims In Spain and northern Italy. Juiius Chambers In Brooklyn Eagle. Net a Dead One.
