Youthful Environment Tells True to His Wayne County Kansas Promises to When Governor Stubbs assumed the office of chief magistrate of Kansas yestrday, he proved true to his early training in Wayne county. He an nounced that an inaugural ball would not be in keeping with his , ideas of piety, so, none will be held. Instead a monster reception will be held.

WAS HARD FOUGHT MATCH Chicago, Jan. 12. Mahmout, the "Terrible Turk," took two straight falls from Charles Olson of Indiana polis last night at the Coliseum. The Turk's strength proved too much for his opponent. A crowd of 5,000 was present and cheered Olson on to a hopeless task. In fact, Olson was on the defensive the greater part of. the time, although at one time he almost had the Turk on his back. He claim ed a fall, but Referee Fleming declar ed against him. The Turk found Olson the toughest customer he has met in this country to date; however, neither Americus nor Beell giving him such- a tussle. The result of the match leaves the Turk in direct line for a match with Frank Gotch for the championship of the world. Gotch stipulated in a re cent letter that if Mahmout beat Am ericus, Beell and Olson he would take him on. Turk Works Hard. . The first fall went to Mahmout in thirty-six minutes and fifty-three sec onds on a bar-arm scissors and chancery. The second was taken by him in thirty-one minutes and thirty seconds, on a bar-arm and wrist lock. Raool De Rouen, the giant French man, took straight falls from John Denutc, the first being at the Graeco- Roman style and the last at catch-as catch-can. The first fall took nine minutes and fifty-seven seconds, the hold being a grapevine and a wrist lock. A grapevine put John on his pack in three minutes and fifty-five seconds in the second. Dick Sorenson was victorious over Jack Burke in a single fall, a bar-arm and half-nelson doing the trick in 10:13. Kid Cutler beat Jack Olson in two bouts turning his rival over in 11:58 on a half-nelson and hammer lock in the first and a front double arm side roll in the second in 7:59. Dick Fleming refereed all the bouts. LEAGUE HAS OPENED Carmans Jump on Five B's Last Night and Maui Them For Three Games. R. CARMAN WAS HIGH PIN STANDING OF CLUBS. Won. Lost. Pet.

GENNETT. Thursday, Jan. 14 "Father and the Boys." Friday, Jan. 15 "Girls." Monday, Jan. 18 Mme. Marchesi. NEW PHILLIPS. All Week High Class Vaudeville. "Girls." "Girls," the new comedy that has added to the fame of Clyde Fitch as an author and Messrs. Shubert as pro ducing managers, will be the offering at the Gennett on Friday, January 15 and comes here with the stamp of ap proval from the patrons of Daly's Broadway theater, New York, where it ran for many months and the the ater going public in general. "Girls" is constructed along strictly original lines and packed full of laughs. It tells of the happenings to three girls, avowed man-haters, who have taken an oath to shun and be independent of the male sex in general. They look upon mere men as an evil. "Girls" shows the wonderful transfor mation of man-haters to man-lovers, the victory of nature's laws and order over the imagination of woman. The situations are novel and the dialogue bright and witty and the author has rounded out the whole into one of the most interesting productions of the season. "Father and the Boys." W. H. Crane one of the most genial and popular of comedians, comes to the Gennett theater on Thursday ev ening, January 14 and will be seen in "Father and the Boys," George Ade's play, as genial and delightful as the comedian himself. Not in years, with the possible exception of "David Harum," has Mr. Crane had a charac ter so congenial and so well adapted for the display of his own engaging personality as the chief figure in this recent emphatic hit of Ade's. It is a typical Crane part, which means that in it the actor is seen at his best. with plenty of opportunities for the very quality of humor which is part of his own make-up in private life and which has made him one of the best liked players on the stage, but a tre mendously popular man away from the foot lights "Genial Billy," as he is styled by his intimates. To see him in "Father and the Boys" demon strating his art at his mellowest, is really to watch him . at play, more than to watch his playing, for the au diences get scarcely more fun out of the play than the actor. The New Phillips. Comedy and good singing always draw a good round of applause at the New Phillips theater and the patrons have not missed their, opportunity of dealing out the "glad hand" to the Bijou Comedy Trio which plays the first three days of this week. Cos tumed in attractive sailor outfits and with three well harmonized voices, these men present a selection of songs that have called for repeated encores. Their list is composed mostly of the popular melodies with here and there, one of the old time songs that will remain in existence as long as Ameri can people are drawn by vaudeville music. The illustrated song of this half week is the work of an old Richmond boy. It has been said that almost anything on the literary market of to day can be traced to the penwork of a Quaker City lad. Gillilan, Blodgett, Hale, McNutt and a bunch of others have made the old town noticed in their lines and now Will Anderson, adds another laurel leaf by having written "several popular songs and in tennedaries. "Just Some One," Is An derson's latest work and is being sung and illustrated at the New Phillips this week. Other works of Ander son's are: "Only You" and "Tesslse" the intermediary of the "Honeymoon Trail." Claude Thardo's coon song singing reaches the high point in anything of the sort ever heard on a Richmond vaudeville stage. Thardo isn't con tent with just singing the songs as they are written, but sticks in a bunch of "eurly-ques" that never fail to draw a laugh. His parody on "Schooldays" deals with the temper ance wave that has been splashing over the national mentality for the past few months and each chorus throws a toque t of rich humor at some prominent Richmond person. The novelty act is a rich little western drama put on by Miss Kitty Faye and company. It is the usual story of a few papers, a little love, a gun-shot and a death. However the general quality of the act is not lack ing in interest, as departures from the aged theme have been made. Two films of motion pictures of popular interest subjects complete the pro gram. Mme. Marchesi. Mme. Blanche Marchesi will be the attraction at the Gennett theater Jan. IS. Wagners "Tristan" is intensely ser ious. The theme of the drama close ly follows a central line of thought. There is nothing of an episodical na ture until after the death of the. hero. Then. . Kurvenal after running amuck among King Mark's retainers, kills Meiot and dies at his beloved mas ter's feet. If the story is terse and compact the music shows the same concentration. It clothes the story of the ill-fated lovers with a musical gar ment of a wonderful richness and glory of texture. Into this score Wag ner poured all his wealth of imagin ation, all his matchless technical fa cility and, in addition he sounded through it a human, personal note which is missing in his treatment of the mythological and legendary. char acters in his other works. Wagner was deeply in love himself at the time he was engaged upon "Tristan" as his diary shows; as a result It stands as the most intimate, passion ate work he wTse'VY'"-;.V Had Madam Blanche Marches! not i 'V been a great singer, she would have won fame as an actress. She has such, a mastery of the technique of histrionics; her medium for the trans lating of passion and pathos every phase of feeling. In short is so per fected, that in an emotional part like that of Isolde, her own personality be comes to the hearer merged in that of the character she represents. mrougnout tne long opening 6cene, when Isolde, loving Tristan, rages at his indifference and finally, deter mines to poison him, her art was be yond criticism. Voice, gestures, pos ture, declamation and facial expres sion all fitted the n.od of tlie mo ment, the very word indeed. The effect of the love-potion, which Bran gaene substitutes for the poison was portrayed by the artist with unerring fidelity. In the second act, where perhaps the most ravisMngly beauti ful music which Wagner ever wrote is heard, she sang and acted as though inspired. But it was in the last act that Mme. Marchesi won her greatest triumph. She has but a few lines to sing, but they will live im perishably in the memory of those who heard them. "Speak unto me but for one moment" word , wrung irom an anguished heart, were sung with a soul-searching tenderness inef fably beautiful. This was the great moment of the drama and the finest thing we have ever heard. A worthy feature of Mme. Marchesi's song re citals is that o even the smallest composition which she sings she brings the same exhaustive interpre tation which has made her operatic appearance the comment of the se vere ' critics of the old world. Her programs are vertlable vocal treasure troves and fountains of pure song. Cascades of melody from Brahms, Schubert, Schumann, Scarlotti, Pur cell, Dr. Arne, Sigurd Lie, Carl Loewe, Reynaldo Hahn, Hugo Wolf, Debussy, List, Guonod and all the older as well as the more modern, masters of song. The selections for her. recital here is wonderful in the scope of songs. PROF.

WAS MISQUOTED LOCALLY William Dudley Foulke has branded as "indiscreet" his remark made in Washington relative to the house of representatives, and ita longing to be insulted by the -president. Mr. Foulke says also, he was misquoted in the re production of his statement as printed in the Palladium Sunday morning. Mr. Foulke says his remark of in discretion was: "The demand of Dogberry to be writ ten down as an ass was pale and color less when compared with the inextin guishable longing expressed by the house of representatives to be insult ed by the president, and have it inferred from language which had no such meaning that a majority of its members were corrupt." Milk Dealers State They Will Positively Refuse to Ac cept Milk Ordinance. ARE PREPARING MEASURE Dairymen attending the special ses sion of council Friday evening will re fuse to accept the terms of the ordin ance. Their next step will be to forn ish an ordinance of their pwn if they cannot convince the councilmen that there are sufficient laws already in regard the subject One dairyman stated today that arrangements had been made by several of the smaller dealers to either quit the business or else sell their milk- to another deal er if the ordinance was psed. These men claim that they can not make money if they abide by the pro visions of the ordinance proposed by City Health Officer Dr. Charles Bond. The section demanding their attention is the provision for all milk to be re tailed in bottles. If the ordinance is passed the dairymen believe that there will be such a reaction against it in a short time that will cause it either to be repealed or its provisions not enforced. In short a milk famine is promised the consumers in this city. An informal meeting was held last evening but as a majority of the dairy men was not present, no action was taken. REV.

H alley's comet has an enviable his tory, but its chief claim to distinction rests in the fact that It was the first periodic comet whose return was pre dicted. Edmund Hslley, an English astronomer, observed Its behavior In 1682 and made calculations which led him to conclude that It was the same comet which bad been seen and noted several times before. He figured it would come back In seventy-live or seventy-six years, and, although be did not live to see the event, the comet did return according to schedule.

DAIRYMEN OBDURATE UNITED STATES A WORLD POWER Prof. Lindley of Earlham To day Described Position Occupied by Country. ADDRESS INTERESTING ONE NEARLY ALL EUROPEAN GOV ERNMENTS EXTEND THE SAME INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY THAT AMERICAN PEOPLE ENJOY. "America as a World Power" furn ished the subject for a very interest ing talk given in the Earlham chapel by Prof. Harlow Lindley, of the his tory department, thi3 morning. Prof. Lindley in a masterly way explained the systems of the different European countries and told of some of the var ious points that should be distinguish ed by history students. He told of the influence of the newspapers and of the similarity of the United States government to the powers of Europe. ! Prof. Lindley said in part: Constitutions for All. "In tho first place every state of Europe west of Russia and " Turkey has a written constitution except Great Dritian and here is in a sense written. In the second place, every one of these constitutions contains . provis ions of fundamental importance to the individual and guarantees to the indi vidual freedom from governmental powers. "In the third place no law can be made in any one of these states ex cept with the consent of its legisla ture and in the legislature of every one of them there is a popular branch, the members of which are choosen according to the laws of suf ferage, so liberal in most cases as to constitute a democratic electorate. "In the last place some of these European states through their present constitutions have freed themselves entirely from the hereditary tenure in the executive power while they that retain the loyal power have not only reduced it from sovereignty to an of fice but have placed its exercise un der ministerial restraint. Nearly Equal U. S. Government. . "When we pass all these facts in rapid review we must conclude that at the present time the European states furnished the individual . cititens or subjects very, nearly the same civil liberty and protection "against gorern: mental encroachments as does the system of the United State. We must also remember that the external man ifestation of the past systems are rem nents of the present modifications and are practically when viewed from the standpoint of political or civil liberty. . "Thus we see the governmental systems of the European states and the governmental system of the Unit ed States are not either in their con struction or In the results of their ac tion so far apart as is generally sup posed on this side of the Atlantic.
