"1 liavo the highest regard for ('apt. Anson
personally." said President Charles Oomiskey,
of the St. Paul riub, yesterday, "and, know-
Ing his reputation and the big following ho
lias In base ball, I should be very glad to
Ben him in the Western league, if he has any
thought of taking a franchise in our circuit.
Itut, as I understand it. Cap'- Anson has
not intimated any such desire. In fact, I
kiiuw iiu'lilng more than gossip to the effect
that he will not continue to be at the head
of the Chicago league club.
"There Is no question that the Chicago club
and the National league for that matter, are
under obligations to Anson." Conilskey con
tinued, lie has been a stalwart, determined
fighter; whether or not he has been a suc
vitli the club under his management
during the last few years, he has certainly
tried to do hia best. Nobody will deny that.
An* 1 stood by the Chicago club and the
league ilurlng the Brotherhood fight, and, as
one who Kttfl on the other side, I will assure
you thai 'ison was a big factor in that
contest. In addition to putitng up his own
motley, and losing it, to back the league, for
everybody Interested in base ball lost money
that time, he was by all odds the best draw-
Ing card Hifl league had that year.
"Now, I don't know whether Anson wants
to get Into our league or not. I haven't the
remotest idea whether he could get a Chi
cago franchise If lie wanted it. My impres
sion !s he would apply for a franchise in
some other city If he should come Into our
league, but that Is only a guess. I* know
nothitiK about his ideas on the subject."
Mr. Comiskey made one statement which
appears to be of some significance in the
matter of Chicago's chances of getting a
Western It-ague franchise. "I am very sure,"
aaid he. '-that the Western league will not
accept the amendments imposed upon the
minor leagues in regard to the drafting of
players at the recent Philadelphia meeting:
for, while the league may have seemed to
favor us in that they granted the two points
we asked for — restricting the number of
players to be drafted from any one club to
two each year and not allowing a man to
be subject to the draft until he has been in
our league two years — these favors are more
than offset by the condition imposed in the
way of giving the National league a right
to reclaim a 'loaned' player on thirty days'
not !••(>. Why. we would a great deal rather
leavn the rules as they were than allow them
to do that. With that rule In force they
could wreck one of our clubs any time they
•wanted to and force us to do what they
•wanted in the way of deals. I do not fully
underatand whether the National league In
sists nn this clause before it grants us the
concessions we asked for, or whether they
liav>' simply requested us to make the con
cessions In regard to loaned players: if the
three changes have to llvi er die together I
am by all means in favor of li-t.ting them die.
and I think the other members of our leagua
■will think the same wav a!>our It."
Manager Comiskey bbv* the National board
la doing him an injustice in not takine un
the Slagel case. Inasmuch as he has paid to
that player a salary of. S32S due Slagel from
the Boston club, with the expectation that
SUk>-1 would play in St. Paul next year; but
the board decided that Kansas City had a
prior claim to Slagel, and yet has made no
provision for Comiskey to get bank the money
pail to the player.

Bacaped \nimnl Im Killed <<■ Save a
Man'H Life.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.. Dec. 3.—
Jack, th<« favorite member of the John
KkII park bear family is dead. It was
cither his life or that of Chris Wiliner
ink, one of the park men, and the
choice was quickly and effectively
made. Jack had escaped from the
park and was killed while an attempt
! was being made to induce him to re-
I turn to his quarters. Kruin was dis
covered by the big party organized to .
hunt Tor him about half a mile from !
the park. Efforts were made to coax
.Jack back to the park, and he was
finally st;>i-t.-'l in the right direction,
the crowd following at a respectful
j distance.
But Jack apparently had no inten
tion of returning to imprisonment. Iff:
had gone only a short distance when
he suddenly turned and made back
directly for his pursuers, Wilmerlnk
was closest to him and the others of i
the party were spread out to cover his
retreat. Jack started toward the park
man on all fours on a run. Wilmerlnk
waved his gun and arms wildly as he
retreated backward", yelling, "Go back.
Jack. <io back Jack." Hut Jack had
his mind made up ami had no inten
tion of K'>i!>n back. When the boar
was within a few feet of him Wilmer
ink struck his foot against a stubble
and fell fial on his back.
Greenley, Wood worth and Watson
covered the brute with their Winches
ters ready to shoot. On came Jack
| with a rush for the prostrate man. As
| hi- approached Wllmerink struck the
bear ;i smart blow on the snout with
his gun. It stopped him for a moment,
but it only tended to Increase his ugli
iii ss. Before Wllmerink was able to
r< gain his feet Jack made another rush
for him. 11 was his last. Three sharp
n ports rang out and as many bullets
pierced the bear's body. Two balls en
tered the fore shoulder and the third
found lodgment in the neck. Jack
irmbled over dead.
Two of the I. urgent Rivers Are Dry,
and lOmporla Huh a Famine.
KMPORIA. K;in., Dec. 3.— Great uneasiness
is being felt regarding the water famine in
this city. Never in tho history of the state
lias water been so scarce, and should cold
weather prevail the consequence, would be
fearful, as what little water there is would
be frozen solid.
Emporia lies between and very near the
junction of two of the largest rivers in Kan
sas, the Neosho and the Cottonwood. For
months not a drop of water has been flowing
in either; indeed. In many places the beds
of both rivers for long distances are as dry
as the sunds of Sahara. Here and there,
where deep holes have been dug by the cur
rent, however, pools of water remain, but
even these are becoming scarce.
For some time past the supply of water for
Emporia has been furnished by tapping se\*
eral of these pools in the bod of the Neosho,
abova the water works dam. The supply has
at last about given out. and Mayor Addis is
now digging a huge well about a mile above
the water works in hopes of striking a sub
terranean river reputed to flow in that

An Bxcuiie for Not l'tiyiiimr the In
demnity Demanded.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3. — Edhem
Bey, the new Turkish charge, who re
cently arrived here, states that he has
received no instructions thus far rela
tive to the reported demand made by
the United States minister at Con
stantinople, Dr. Angell, for a speedy
payment of indemnity for the destruc
tion of American mission property in
Turkey. It is believed that Turkey
will postpone a* settlement on the
ground of a depleted treasury. This
was the basis for a former postpone
ment. The excuse is less effective
now, however, as Turkey is to receive
a large cash indemnity from Greece.
It is felt that Dr. Angell's pressing for
payment of the American claims is
due largely to his knowledge that
Turkey is about to have a replenished
treasury- It is said at the state de
partment that no new claims have
been filed since Mr. Terrill's presenta
tion of the subject, and that Dr. An
gell is simply pressing these to a defi
nite conclusion.

is that the canal is about one-third

Great Injustice.
Special to the Globe.
WASHINGTON, ;»•<•. 3.— The goven
ment will never pay its honest debts, if
it can escape them. Thecongress will
always be subject to the influences of
spoilsmen. The bills carrying appro
priations containing a "divvy" will al
ways find corrupt supporters.
Senator Teller, of Colorado, Is likely
to receive considerable censure for a
pending procedure, which is exceeding
ly reprehensible. Nevertheless, Sen
ator Teller Is no more worthy of blame
than the other statesmen, and he is
less censurable than many of them.
Senator Teller will be censured rather
because of his position as chairman of
the committee on claims, than because
of any particular action on his part.
There are hundreds of honest claims
against he government, which are
pending and have been pending for
many years. The claimants come to
Washington year after year, begging
for justice; but begging in vain. The
committees make favorable reports on
their bills; and then the committees on
claims and appropriations Ignore the
bills, and they die. The claimants die,
too, very often, without getting their
rights. But little difficulty is experi
enced by the attorneys for the Choteau
claim, the Bowman act claim and the
infamous French spoliation claims, so
far as congress is concerned. They can
secure appropriations from the treas
ury for the payment of millions, but
the honest claimant, to whom the gov
ernment owes a few , i.undred or few
thousand dollars, cannot get justic... It
Is practically Impossible for them to
even secure a hearing..
The government claimants were very
busy last year, and they pressed the
congress very hard for recognition;
and, as a step in the right direction, a
joint resolution was passed, authoriz
ing the senate committee on claims to
prepare a general claim bill, incorpo
rating in the bill all honest claims,
which have been favorably reported
upon by committees of either the sen
ate or house of representatives. Sena
tor Teller is chairman of the commit
tee «on claims, and under his direction
the bill has been prepared, until It is
now practically completed <*antl ready
to report to the senate on the first day
of the session.
You may have no idea how many
hopes are wrapped up in that general
claims bill. You cannot conceive how
many hungry hearts, and hungry
mouths are awaiting tho passage of
the bill, which will bring relief to
those who are suffering; to those who
ought to be in comfortable circum
stances, if they had their rights.
You cannot tell what feelings, with
ered hopes, bitter, burning wrongs,
anxiety, fear and ultimate misery
those claimants have within their
hearts' hot cells shut tip; for all of
them are to be doomed to disappoint
ment and despair.
Today they are buoyed up with hope;
because they believe that the general
claims bill will give them back their
own, and tho government at last will
be honest. They are counting the days
when they will receive the treasury
drafts, and their homes will be glad
dened with relief f rom wa nt.
Like a dynamite shock' will come to
them the news, one of these days, that
the government is not honest, and did
not intend to be honest. Then there
will be weeping and wailing and
gnashing of teeth. The picture, even
anticipatory as it is, must move good
hearts to sympathy, and some of them
to tears.
The general claims bill will bo passed by
the senate before the Christmas holidays.
To those who do not know the truth the
passage of the bill by the senate will be as
a benison, and they will thank God and take
courage: and they will have a merry Christ
mas—a Christmas of happiness based upon
false hope.
To become a law. a bill must pass both
the senate and the house of representatives.
\\ ell after the general claims bill shall have
passed the senate it will go to tho house of
representatives. There, in the room of the
committee on claims, the bill will sleep the
sleep that knows no waking. It will never
be reported to the house, and it will never
be passed by the present congress.
Speaker Tom Reed, the man 'who rules the
house of representatives as an old-time school
master ruled his country school, has de
clared for economy In government expendi
tures, tnder his orders tho chairman of the
house committee on claims will withhold the
bill, and It can never be passed. The people
who are looking for justice will get injus-
But don't blame Senator Teller. He has
done his duty, and his committee has acted
honestly. Moreover, you may be sure that
the senate v.-ill act honestly arid sincerely with
these honest claimants against tho general
Place the blamp. If you will, upon the
house of representativesr, or upon Speaker
U<ed individually. You lave the facts, and
will reach your own conclusions anyway.
The committee clerks say that each bill
hP3 a history, and that a full description
of the general claims bill would fill a vol
ume. There are claims for horses used by
the Union troops during, tho. Civil war, and
never paid for by the soldiers. There are
claims for fornge taken and Used in cavalry
campaigns and never paid for. One claim
ant furnished J7r>,o<Ki worth of Ice, which was
not accepted according to contract, and the
Ice nulted into the Mississippi river. The j
man was then wealthy. He became suddenly I
poor and begs In vain for justice One claim
ant wants $5,000 for the desruetion of her I
hous^ by fire, while her husband was in the
Union army. She will never- get her money.
Speaker Reed is as honest as any man In
either house of congress. So is Congressman
Hrumm, the chairman of the committee on
claims. The same may ba scid of the mem
bers of the committee on claims. Probably a
majority of the members of the house of rep- j
rescntatives are honest enouph, and believe 1
that these claims ought to be paid. But, as
a general proposition. It may be said that
the surcharged sentiment of the house of
representatives is opposed to the general
claims bill, mainly because the treasury is
bankrupt and in no condition to meet the hon- I
cat obligations of the government. 1
Control of the Foreln" Market, to

SIOUX CITY, 10., Dee. 3.— The ninth
annual convention of the National Live
Stock exchange began here at 3 p. m.
today. The convention brings to Sioux
City, besides the foremost representa
tives of the live stock Industry of the
land, the largest number of representa
tive railway men ever in attendance
upon a meeting of the national body
outside of Chicago. The National Lave
Stock exchange is composed of the live
stock exchanges of Chicago, Kansas
City, South Omaha, Bast St. Louis,
Louisville, Fort Worth, St. Joseph,
Pittsburg and South St. Paul, and each
exchange sends a full delegation, with
the exception of Pittsburg.
Following the call to order. President
Thompson delivered his annual address
in part as follows:
The maintenance of the avenue of outlet,
the foreign markets, for our surplus rests
largely with the producer. There his pro
duct comes in strong competition with that
of other nations produced at times under more
favorable circumstances and much cheaper
than that of our own. Our success lies In
the quality of our products, therefor*, let us
never lose an opportunity to improve more
and more the quality of our output until it
Is recognized and accorded the palm of
superiority it so Justly deserves, uncqualcA
by that of any nation on earth. Tin- tlm»
Is fast approaching when the quality of our
productions will be the standard of ad
mission to foreign markets. It should be
the- aim not only of lh& producer but ali.:
those who are Interested Id the exportation
of live Btock and meat food products to
know that none but the very best in qual
ity Is Bent abroad. All those interested in
live stock should duty appr«*clate and grate
fully acknowledge the successful efforts made
by the secretary of agriculture to promote
an Increase In the demand of our dairy pro
ducts In foreign markets, and the dairy
men of"thiß country should show appreciation,
not alone by keeping the product at such a
standard of excellence as will defy all com
petition at home and abroad, but by never
losing an opportunity to inaugurate any im
provement In the manufacture tending to im
prove the quality of the output.
Undoubtedly the beef-producing Industry
is the branch of agriculture justly claiming
tho most serious consideration, and it is one
of more importance to our constituents than
any other. It is important because large
amounts of money are represented in the raw
material; it is Important because of the
great expense in caring for, furnishing feed
and fattening for market. This latter ex
pense Is about the same per head on fatten
ing a common or inferior class of cattle
as It is on the grades or thoroughbreds.
The market value of the matured ani
mals is from 60 cents to f1.50 per lo<) pounds
in favor of grade or matured cattle, which
fact should convince the producer that In
order to obtain the best price for his feed he
should feed it to befter grades of cattle.
The speaker also spoke at considerable
length on the raising of hogs and sheep. He
urged the early marketing of hogs, which,
he said, would have a tendency to reduce the
stock of lard and make It more valuable to
the producer, and would undoubtedly reduce
the losses sustained by producers through the
ravages of hog cholera.
The English sheep raiser, continued the
speaker, through proper breeding and care
in feeding, produces a grade of mutton su
perior to ours In edible qualities, and there
fore secures a better price fur it, at the same
time shearing as much and as good a quality
of wool as an American, hence his advantage
and ability to make us take a "back seat."
so to speak, with our mutton. Why not take
advantage of the experience furnished by
him and grade and improve our flocks until
they are net only the peer of, but superior
to any in the world, and .such as will evi
dence their superiority when their carcasses
are in foreign markets hung side by side
with those produced by our brethren across
the watrr.
The success which has attended your ef
forts is in a large measure owing to the
valuable aid rendered by the producers ami
consumers throughout the country who, when
called upon by your executive officers, have
made their influence felt even In the halls
of congress In support of adopted measures
of exchange, and I feel warranted in saying
that so long as practical business men are
willing to give a portion of their time and
counsel, regardless of personal Interests, and
without hope of fee or reward, but feeling
amply repaid in the consciousness and satis
faction they will gain by contributing to so
worthy a cause, so long may we expect the
unqualified support of our constituency, so
necessary to our success. The past is his
tory and we stand or fall upon tho record we
have made, let us therefore, turn our atten
tion to tho business for which we are assem
bled and in our deliberations and dispositions
of the questions that may come before us at
this meeting be actuated by the common im
pulse "to do the greatest good to the greatest
At the session tikis afternoon it was
decided that next year's convention
should be held In Omaha. A request
from the Chicago Board of Tr.id-> for
an Indorsement of the candidacy of Col.
William R. Morrison for reappointment
as a member of the interstate com
merce commission was refused. Yhe
question of changing the federal quar
antine line was given to a special
committee consisting of two members
from each exchange, which will make
a report at the regular .session tomor
row. A banquet was given the dele
gates tonight, at which prominent live
stock men made addresses.

An Individual giving his name as
Charles Johnson reported to the police
yesterday that he had been "touched"
for $60 by a woman whom he accom
panied to the saloon of W. H. Griffin, at
33 East Seventh street, Thursday night.
"Johnson," who lives at Merrlam Park,
claims that he followed tho woman and
demanded his money and also request
ed the proprietor of the saloon to as
sist him in securing the return of the
roll. Griffin says the fellow lost no
money In his place and that an attempt
was being made to blackmail him, but
he would not stand it. The police are
said to have commenced an investiga
tion of the affair.
State Hoard of Heulth iMHtien a Let
ter o>f Warning.
Dr. Reynolds, director of the veter
inary department of the state board of
health, in accordance with the decision
of that body has issued a circular of
advice to farmers and stockmen con
cerning the many so-called cures for
hog cholera, and the men who aft go
ing over the state selling them. It
Hog cholera has tw»en proven infectious by
many different men and by many careful ex
periments. Practical experience supports
these scientific experiments and so it is dif
ficult to understand how any one who has
had experience with the disease can think
otherwise than that It Is infectious. These
hog cholera cure agents are themselves a
constant source of danger, as they go from
farm to farm. Owners and local health of
ficers should not allow them to go near the
hogs upon auy farm where the disease has
not appeared, and they violate the law when
they go into pens or yards where, hogs have
been quarantined by local or state boards
of health.
John Cownle. vice president of the State
Agricultural Society of lowa, has recently
superintended a test of one of the most prom
inent of these hog cholera cures and hl3 con
clusions, as published at length in Wallace's
Farmer and Dairyman of Oct. 13, are as fol
lows: "So far the disease which is now de
stroying the swine herds of our state has
baffled all efforts to cure or even control it,
and each and every one of the so-called "hog
cholera cures' now on the market have proved,
when put to a fair and honest test in a herd
really affected by the disease, to be without
merit and absolutely worthless as a cure for
this dread complaint."
The only prospect now In sight for the
cure or medical prevention of this disease
seems to lie in the way of blood serum or
antitoxin. Meanwhile the farmers of Minne
sota should not add to their losses by spend
ing money for worthless hog cholera medi
cines. They should, however, do everything
In their power to prevent the spread of the
disease by excluding the common carriers of
Infection from their herds of hogs.
