CAPE NORMALS TRIMMED 32-0 BY CARBONDALE GERMANS SINK 14 BRITISH SHIPS IN THE CHANNEL KELLY REBUKES BENYINYARDAND LOUIS B. HOUCK WILL ASK LAMM TO SPEAK THREE TIMES IN CAPE United States' First Submarine, Too Old For Fighting Duty, Is on Its Way to the Shelf jlJlL w Luck with Visitors Aids Them in Using Forward Pass for Scoring. FUMBLES WERE COSTLY TO CAPE; NO "PUNCH" Ranny Is Star Halfback of Cour leus Aggregation Cline Did Well. With the break of luck in their fa vor supplement! by a bigger and more experienced eleven, the Carbon dale Normals yesterday afternoon de feated the Cape Normal aggregation bv a score of 152 to 0. The game was played before a large crowd at Fair- grounds Park. Forward passes brilliantly executed, followed by runs across a clear field, resulted in three of the Carbondale scores. Two of the Carbondale for ward passes were the most spectacular -ver witnessed in the history of foot ball in the Cape. The Carbondale giant who hurled the ball, shot it straight as an arrow Hies. The bacg from the Carbondale offense leaped into the air and one handed brought the pigskin down till it nestled under his arm. Each of his j days resulted in touchdowns. The Cape team also indulged in for wanl passes and two were executed successfully netting the Cape a total of 40 yards. On the first, Parker, fullback, threw the ball to Ranney, left halfback, who made a gain of 25 yards. On the second, Parker sent the ball to tiie arms of Cline, the Cape's quar terback, who gained 15 yards. Ranney did the most brilliant play ing for the Cape team and Cline at quarter did good work. On the w hole, the Carbondale team out-generalled the local eleven. In the last quarter the Cape took a spurt and virtually fought the visitors off their feet, but their brace came too late and they were unable to put the punch into their attack at the time when it meant a score. The Carbondale boys also were pre pared to defend their goal with a man who never failed to kick the ball 40 yards whenever he got a chance. In this manner he kept his goal line out of danger. The Cape is without a kicker. Carbondale mixed up the style of plays that were used against the Cape, kicked when it was necessary, hit the line, went around ends or employed the forward pass. The lineup of the Cape was as fol lows: Morgan, Bechle and Walling, left end; Klaus, left tackle; Clark and Miller, left guard; Farrar an'd Allison, reiter; Bartels and Fitzgerald, right guard; Lahmeyer and Crecelius, right tackle; Latham, right end; Cline and Joyce, quarter; Black, right half; Ran ney and Dudley, left half, and Parker fullback. Chamberlin. formerly of Nebraska and now of Poplar Bluff, was umpire. The Cape team next Saturday will meet Christian Brothers College of St. Louis, and following that game, ne gotiations now are pending for a game with McKendree College to be played here. It is probable that a game also will be played with DeSoto Athletic Club, Coach Courleux declared last night. The Normal Second team will go to Jackson next Wednesday for a game and on Thanksgiving Day, the second team will play at Caruthersville. PRETTY MAN" FLEES 278 WOULD-BE WIVES Huntington, L. I., Oct. 27. William Gamer, who advertised himself a few days ago as a "pretty man" who want ed a wife, has left this town to escape the matrimonially inclined of the op posite sex. The first day he got 40 letters, the second 172, and the third he told the postmaster: "If any letters come for me, burn them. I'm going away." Some of the fair ones had called Garner up on the telephone and others threatened personal interviews. This with the comments of his friends here proved too much for him.

CUTSMAN'SSTOMACH OPEN IN A FIGHT James Richmond in Dangerous Condition at Hospital Last Night. James Richmond, a carpenter work- in a logging camp near Sharps- boro, a few miles below the Cape, last night was cut and perhaps fatally wounded in a fight with two brothers, Robert and George Surlett, both em ployes at the logging camp. A warrant charging the brothers with assault with intent to kill last night was issued against them by Jus tice of the Peace W. H. Wilier, when a complaint was sworn out by Jeff riiev a friend of Richmond's who i came to the. Cape with him. Richmond was brought to the Cape !bv some of his friends and taken to St. Francis Hospital. The brother who inflicted the wound upon Richmond, apparently used a sharp pocketknife. The blade went in deep and made a wound ten inches long across the left side of his stomach just below the belt line. According to the story of the cut ting that was told by P. C. Gross, pro prietor of a boarding hou?e at Sharps bo ro where the three men have been taking their meals, the fight was the outgrowth of an old grudge between them. He said that they ate their supper . togGther ast nighfand left the dining room together. When they were out- side, they started to talking anil quar-1 relling. A short time later, he said he heard Richmond call for help and ran outside to find him wounded. Friends of Richmond, who came to the Cape last night with him, told the police that the immediate cause of the fight was a quarrel over some work upon a house that Richmond was build ing. He is a carpenter. The surlett boys are "0 and 35 years old, respectively, and all three men are married. They disappeared after the fight. Last night after the physicians had performed an operation upon Rich mond in which they sewed his wound together, it was said that his condition is very dangerous.

HARMON DEAL GETS WILSONS WIRELESS Harmon Deal, the son of E. J. Deal, last night received a wireless message sent out by the War Department in Washington to all of the amateur wire less stations in the United States. Each operator receiving the message was asked by the Government to pre sent it to the local newspaper. Mr. Deal, immediately upon receipt of the message, delivered it to The Tribune emce. The statement was taken from one of President Wilson's speeches, and rad: "President Wilso say3 I neither TRIBUNEBESTPAPER, SAYS COUNTY COURT Judges Give It Big Printing Con tract Jackson Items Lands Prize. By selecting The Tribune to publish the official ballots and the three amendments that are to be voted upon at the coming election, the County Court officially declared The Tribune to be the leading daily newspaper in Cape Girardeau County, which natur ally makes it the greatest newspaper in Southeast Missouri. The Tribune is the only Republican daily newspaper published in South east Missouri, but politics does not en ter into the court's action in awarding the contract for publishing the ballots and amendments. This is always given to the two leading newspapers in the county. The Jackson Items also was authorized to publish these documents. The Weekly edition of The Tribune in this week's issue earned the page and one-half of ballots and amend ments. In order that the city readers of The Tribune may obtain a copy of the official ballots and amendments, The Tribune will publish them in one of its daily issues between now and the day of election. The newspapers that were consider ed by the court for publishing the offi cial ballots and the amendments, and their politics, were: The Tribune, Republican; Jackson Items, Republican; Jackson Cash Book, Democratic; Oak Ridge Independent, Democratic; Cape Girardeau Republi can, Prohibition. Although The Tribune is less than three years old, it has passed every newspaper in Southeast Missouri, in circulation and prestige. No news paper ever published in this section of the State has made such a rapid growth as has The Tribune. This newspaper was originally an independ ent Republican paper, but it has since been made the Republican organ in this part of Missouri, and has been in dorsed by the Republican Committee of Cape Girardeau County. seek the favor nor fear the dis pleasure of that small alien element amongst us which puts loyalty to a foreign power before loyalty to the United States." The apparatus at the Deal home with which Harmon Deal sends and re ceives wireless messages, was con structed by him. Young Deal is con sidered an inventire genius. While working with his radio instrument he has become an expert wireless opera tor. Last spring he accepted a positioji as wireless operator on one of the Lake Michigan, where he remained un til a short time ago. Tells Wilson-Gardner Club Officials They Are Trying to Defeat Him. DEMOCRATS READY TO DECLARE WAR Charges of Double-crossing and Sky-scraping Treason Made by Two Factions. The split in the local Democratic party yesterday .'resulted in Judge Frank Kelly, Democratic nominee for re-election to the Circuit Court, per sonally denouncing L. B. Houck and Ben Yinyard, president and secretary, respectively, of the Wilson-Gardner Democratic Club, and the recognized leaders of the party in this county. Judge Kelly accused Mr. Houck and Mr. Yinyard with attempting to bring about his defeat. "You have told Dem ocrats that my renomination would cost the Democratic party votes," shouled Judge Kelly at Ben Yinyard. The secretary of the Wilson-Gardner Club assured the Judge that he was goinrf to vote the Democratic party, but the Democratic candidate con tinued the discussion. It has been known for more than two weeks that a break was brewing in tht ranks ot tke Democratic party. i. j.-, openly admitt ?fi by certain Dem ocrats that they vT. not vote for the Democratic nominees this year. Houck and Yinyard have been informed that the dry Democrats are going to scratch Col. Gardner. This has anger ed the officials of the Wilson-Gardner Club, who have not attempted to con ceal the fact that they were displeas ed over certain osunty nominees. The Cape Girardeau leadens, who have accomplished all that has lecn accomplished for the Democratic party in this campaign, have taken excep tions to the determination of Dem ocratic county committeemen living in the western part of the county to dom niate the nominees. Neither Mr. Houck nor Mr. Yinyard has been able to get the County Committee to accept their selections for county candidates. This rivalry caused the first fric tion in the party. Finally the Wilson- Gardner leaders decided to cut away from the County C mmiltee and work alone, ignoring the Countv Committee. tu v ,..,ti.. ,..u:i, ... ,,!

When some of the country Dem ocratic leaders learned that Bryan was going to speak here, they tried to "horn in" on the party, but they were given the frozen stare. mj . t .1 i i :.n . . : i ine Dreacn nas neeii rupiiuv men - mg ever since. During the past week it has become common gossip that cer tain dry Democrats had announced they were going to scratch certain wet Democratic nominees. It is also said bv influential Cape Girardeau Democrats that certain party men have agreed to swap Democratic votes in order to get Republicans to vote for Judge Frnak Kelly. Judge Kelly charged Mr. Houck and Mr. Yinyard with circulating stories about him for the purpose of antag onizing the voters. Both denied they had mentioned his name to any voter, but Mr. Houck did not assure the Judge that he planned to vote for him. The Democrats who are opposing Houck and Vinyard charge them with ingoring every candidate except Pres ident. Wilson and Col. Gardner. "If Gardner get in," said a Democrat last night, "Houck and Vinyard will get everything there is to get in this part of th; State, and they will refuse to in dorse any Democrat who has not done what they asked during the cam paign." As a matter of fact, Houck and Vin yard are the only party men in this county who have exerted any effort in behalf of Gardner. Their friends say the rank and file of the part are jeal ous of what Houck and Vinyard have accomplished. It has reached the stage where every Democrat suspects every other party man, and when Democrats get together it is for the purpose of harpooning onto Democratic leader instead of dis cussing party organization for the coming election.
