rAGE TWOw. DORAMDO DEFEATS HAYESJN MARATHON , .... ...... .....,. Italian Runner Showed Much Speed and Great Endur- ance in Renewal. , - - - -AYES STAYED WITH HIM. Iab not until the last lap and by tremendous burst of speed that american was outdistanced. New'Tork,1, Nov. 26. The end of the most exciting struggle between two tnen ever witnessed la this city, came t midnight last night when 10,000 per sons rose and greeted Dorando as the victor In the renewal of the famous Marathon of" the English ' Olympiad. For almost three hours Oorando Pietrl end Johnny Hayes, the game little New York boy who brought victory to the American athletes in the most famous event of the Olympian games, padded about the restricted tanbark ring on which the disputed Marathon was to be re-run. From the Btart it was seen that Dorado, living up to the reputation he made when he last met Hayes, had wonderful speed, and en durance extraordinary in a human be ing. At the last race he was at one time almost six miles head of Hayes. Last night he was not six feet ahead of him during the running of the 2G3 laps until the last lap, when he spurt ed, and, with his marvelous speed, sained a quarter of a lap and crossed the finish line this mush ahead of JIayes. The race was run for the full 6 miles. CONGRESSMEN DO NOT THINK TAFT. WILL INTERFERE (Continued From Page One.) WAS HAPPY. THRONG Roller Skating Season Opened At the Coliseum Last Night. ALL WAS IN READINESS. It was the same old crowd, the same old music, but a better floor and bet ter rollers than ever that featured the opening of the skating season in this city last evening. The weather was slightly too warm for the winter In door pastime, but the - crowd was large and everybody happy. The floor was In the best condition it has been since the rink has been opened and that is saying a great deal. During the summer months , the skates have been fitted up anew and new rollers substituted) for those that "were nicked or broken and there is probably no rink In the country better equipped with skates than that In this city. Of course there were numerous spills and plleups. The local skaters persist in going at a rapid rate and accidents are the Inevitable -result. congress would vote this year to in crease their salaries, employment by the government does not seem to have lost'any of its; attractions. Reports received by the civil service commis sion, show that, at the recent general examinations there were more appli cations than ever before. ! This rush to get into the service Is attributed, by some to belief that con gress will soon raise the level of civil service salaries, but a safer. opinion, is that the same old lure of government employment is still at work and as population increases applications may be expected to increase. Whatever the cause, the increase in applications Is gratifying to those charged with the duty of providing Un cle Sam with clerks. The larger the list the more opportunities there are for selection, and the government al ways is in need of capable help. PUT KUHN IN THE SENATE (Continued From Page One.) dependently of any other official con nection with the city government. It is believed that the work of the controller can be done by the city clerk, that or the city judge by tne mayor and that of the city treasurer by the county treasurer, thereby sav ing to the city the calaries of the three officials whose place are to be abolished. It is argued that the board of public works as at present const! tuted is not needed. It Is pointed out that most of the work is don by the mayor and the city engineer and that the board really does little more than ratify their acts. Under the present law there is no street commissioner, but it is felt that one Is needed and that he should be a member of the board of public works, along with the mayor and the city engineer. The citl tens of Kokomo and several of the other fourth class cities are said to be strong for the change, because it will save them money. SELECTION IS MADE Seven Groups of Ten Ears of Corn to Be Shown at Omaha. THE INSPECTOR IS PLEASED COM E THIS WEEK Wrestlers Who Will Appear plohday Night, Training For Contests. WINKELHOEFER GOOD MAN. Wlnkelhoefer, Young Beel and Roe ber, who will take part In the double header wrestling match at the Colise um Monday night, will arrive in this city the latter part of this week. Olson who Is matched to go against the Ger man Hercules, Wlnkelhoefer, will probably not arrive here until the day of the mrtch. Olson is now in hard training at Indianapolis, as he realizes this match will be the most Important he has had this season, not even bar ren; the match he had with Americus at Baltimore. The (other three principals in the double header are also In hard train ing. The first match "will be between the two middleweights, Young Beel and Roeber and will start at 8:15 sharp. These two men are regarded among the top rotchers of their class. Wlnkelhoefer is a man of about the same stature of Gotch, the world's champion heavyweight The Ger man Hercules Is the logical favorite in the match, as he is at least twenty five pounds heavier than Olson and is as quick and skillful as his clever opponent. Consul Gracy at Tsingtau warns young men against going to China in the hope of finding profitable jobs. Any young man who Is willing to work will, he says, find better opportunities every day In the large American cities. A new process has been discovered In China by which ramie fibre be comes a soft flasse in a few minutes. A company has been formed to pre pare the. flasse for general use. and the first shipment will soon be made to Europe. A very creditable exhibition of Ori ental paintings, both modern and an cient examples, was held at the India Government School of Art in Calcutta recently. The selection of seven groups of ten ears from the corn offered by Wayne county growers for exhibition at the National Corn Exposition to be held at Omaha, Neb., was made yesterday by Joseph Helms, of Center township, Mr. Helms is an expert at judging corn, and Is a member of the Indiana committee that has in charge the work of preparing the state exhibit for the national show. The winner of the prize for the best ten ears of corn re ceives a prize of $1,000 and a trophy cup worth $1,000. Mr. Helms regards the chances of the Wayne county growers as being good. He was very flattering in his remarks about the quality of corn placed on display yes terday. There was not as general response to the call of Mr. Helms for the corn exhibition as he had desired. How ever, the offerings made were of bet ter rank than is usual. The selections made by Mr. Helms and the gradings placed upon each were as follows: El E. Eliason, tnixed corn, 78.7; yel low, 80; Frank Kuhlman, yellow corn 82.7; John Nicholson, yellow, 79.5 Will Elkenberry, yellow, 78.7; Alfred Harris, yellow, 74; A. D. Bond, white corn, 71.9; William Threewitt, yellow, 72.8 and J. S. Helms, 86.7. Mr. Helms will also exhibit in a special class a specimen of the bloody butcher varie ty, which scores in the neighborhood of 90.

Francis Galton, who is now eighty six years old, studied surgery in the old days before chloroform was used, and says of the Birmingham hospital "The cries of the poor fellows who were operated on were very character istic; in fact, each class of operation seemed to evoke some peculiar form of them. All of this was terrible, but only at first. It seemed after a while as though the cries were somehow dis connected with the operation, upon which the whole attention became fix ed.- In 1904 Japan exported a little over 11,000 worth of human hair; the tal export was valued at $60,000 1906.

HOOSIER IS PROSPEROUS, HAS LARGEST PAYROLL IN ITS HISTORY STARR PIANO COM PANY WORKS FULL TIME WITH SOME OVERTIME. The shop employes of Richmond had particular cause to offer up thanks this Thanksgiving day. A year ago this month was a gloomy one to these citizens. Several of th eshops were closed down and nearly all the others were working with skeleton forces be cause of the financial panic. At the present time these conditions are re versed. Every factory is in operation and nearly all of them are working with full forces. The Hoosler Drill branch of the American Seeding Ma chine company now has the largest payroll in its history, over seven hun dred men being at work. At the Starr Piano works a capaci ty working force is employed, all the men working sixty hours per week, an average of ten hours per day, and there is considerable overtime work. This factory has been working on this basis since the first of last Janu ary. The Gaar, Scott & Company and the Robinson & Company have not their full working forces employed, but this condition is not the result of the re cent financial depression. It is the result of the drought, which has made the spring wheat prospect in the north west an uncertain proposition. It is now thought that the wheat outlook is improving in that section of the coun try, and it is quite probable that next month or the first of nextyear will find these two big concerns operating with full forces. At the Wayne Works, the F. & N. Lawn Mower works, the Dille, Mc- Ouire Lawn Mower works, the West- cott Carriage company, the Richmond Carriage company, the Seidel Carriage company, the Hutton Casket company, the Richmond Casket company, the Watt & Keelor Casket company and other local manufacturles, nearly ' the normal working staffs are employed and the business outlook Is reported to be excellent. CHURCHES UNITED FOR THANKSGIVING (Continued From Page One.) the past year. We should offer grat itude to God in all things. "All of us here today should offer gratitude to God for the advancement being made in the cause of temper ance. - This is more advanced today than at any time since the saloons have been established. I do not feel disposed to criticize Governor Hanly for the calling of the special session of the legislature. I believe that these moral questions should be kept out of politics. I do not think that the tem perance cause has been materially helped by the clauses that are in the two partiy's platforms. It behoove us to push the battle on to victory. "One ought to be grateful for the re cent rain. Men have prayed. Men have longed for this event and it is very befitting that we should rejoice together for this recent blessing. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness and his wonderful works to the children of men. " Tne union services at the First Eng lish Lutheran church were participat ed in by the members of that congre gation, the Second English Lutheran, the South Eighth Street Friends, and the St. Paul's Lutheran churches. The sermon in English was delivered by the Rev. Emerson Harsh, of the Sec ond English Lutheran church and the Rev. Conrad Huber, of St. Paul's spoke in German. The services were con ducted by the Rev. E. G. Howard, of the First English Lutheran church and the scripture was read by the Rev Mr. Keats of the South Eighth Street Friends church. In his sermon, the Rev. Mr. Harsh told of the reasons wh thanks should be given to God. He declared thanks were due for His great temporal bles sings, the agricultural blessings, those that have befallen the Industrial world and the institutional development. The blessings were said to have been shown in the kindness offered and the guiding hand that has been manifested In political affairs. The abounding blessings that have befallen the church of Christ were told of. The Rev. Sonrad Huber chose for his scriptural reading the first and second verses of First Timothy, chap ter 51. His text was as follows: "I exort, therefore, that first of all sup plication, prayer, Intercession, and giving of thanks bemade for all men, for kings and for all that are in au thority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in Godliness and hon esty." The text was expanded upon and the sermon, which was in German, was a forceful presentation of the spirit of the day. Lead, when reduced to a very low temperature in liquid air, is said to act much as steel at ordinary temper atures. It will serve as a helical spring, for example. - Just as iron is soft and inelastic at a high red color, so lead is dull and soft at ordinary temperatures, for it is then already wall en Its way to ba maltad.

Nearly everybody enjoyed a va cation and all those with sporting pro clivities were out in search for the rab bit and quail. The rain was welcom ed by the hunters for more reasons than the material good it did. It laid the dust and enabled the bird dogs to "work" on trails. This Is something the dogs had been unable to do for several weeks on account of the dry condition of everything. At an early hour this morning nu merous vehicles were seen leaving the city and all contained marksmen anx ious to try their skill. Others walk ed, and as soon as the daylight arrived the bang of the gun was heard in fieldrs and woods. The slaushter of rabbits will be great.
