r GAUGH HILL IN HANDICAP Grover Hughes, Carrying Top Weight, Runs Good Race, But Is Unplaced. FLY BY NIGHT IN OPENER NORFOLK, Va., Nov. 14. (Special.) The hard rain of last night was beneficial rather than detrl-, mental to the course at James town to-day, for It packed the sandy track and made the going better than yesterday. Another large attendance weu on hand despite the drop In temperature. Sixteen layers quoted odds and did a fair volume of business. To-day's card was an Improvement over that of yesterday, " many of the better class of horses being among the starters. The Kentucky horses were given respectful consideration, due to Merry Lad's . hollow victory In the Lynnhaven Stakes yesterday. White Wool would have also been a bit faster in this race but for Jockey Glass' action of reaching over and taking hold of his bridle. He was promptly warned off the course for his offense. The crack sprinter, Grover Hughes, was the center of Interest In the fifth race. He was carrying top weight, but enjoyed favoritism and made a splendid showing. Cauga Hiil won the event cleverly.

San i'Vancisco and Nashville, lenn., also were after the meeting. Irade and barter talk was so continuous to-day that President M. H. Sexton, of the association, f6und it difficult to get enough members together to constitute a quorum. Appointment of the Readjustment Committee settled what thrfiatpnpil to hncnm, an object of severe contention among the Miiifcjmiefl. inere appeared some dissatisfaction with the" agreement insofar as it required the minora to submit their sal ary limit action to the commission for approval, and because many of the smaller leagues tnougnt the commission dicta torial in its attitude.

Thp arbitration board, which has found little wine or inclination to ao its worn, win remain, and to-morrow decision Is expected in a number of cases of more than purely local importance.

Sebree, of Carro.lton, Is so far as is known here, the only other announced candidate tor the place, which pays about $5,000 a year. Former Congressman W. P. Kimball, who Is a well-known lawyer, and who has been for many years chairman of the Democratic Joint City and County Committee and one of the oest-knoivn Democratic leaders or central Kentucky, to-night authorized the statement that he was a candidate for appointment to the position of United States collector of internal revenue'ln this district.

NEW HAVEN", Conn., Nov. 14. Prospects of a Yale victory over 'lie Tigers Saturday are daily growing brighter to Yale eyes. The return of Bomeisler, the all-American end, to the lineup and the general improvement in team play has encouraged all followers of the Blue. The betting is still inclined to favor Princeton, but those who know Yale'B faculty for late-season development are taking the short end of the wagering. Bomeisler played at right end all through the practice, and there is no doubt but that he will start the game Saturday. He plays with all his old-time speed, and one would think that he had never' been injured and had been In the game all season. His runs down under puts easily rank him ahead of any end seen at Yale" field. this year in any game by any team, tie also took the forward pass well and was a better tackier than anyone in the laie lineup, ne is iji' with a brace, and the coaches say Mere Is no chance of his shoulder being Injured aain There Is not the sligntesiSsigii .-f staleness us the result of ills lack of work "'oespUe' the rain, the team was sent th-oush a hard scrimmage, which marked the close of heavy work for the Princeton came.

Princeton, N. J., Nov. 14. The Princeton footbal! eleven wound up the hard part of Its preparation for Saturday's contest with Yale with a two-hour workout today. Contrary to general expectation, light scrimmage was held, but this did not last more than ten minutes, serv.ns merely to give the first eleven a little defensive try-out and a chance to run through their tormaiiun. An of the regulars with the exception of Dunlap were In the line-up, Wight tak- GUARD; .MALLORY. QUARTERBACK; manager, but Is probably explained by the fact that until the franchise Is transferred and officers are elected, none of the new owners has authority to trade, while Hayden as representative of the old regime has that power, I'.nd obliged the new owners by currying out the deal. WHILE THE LOSS OF- TINKER IS a big one, it seems that the Cubs would prom by the deal whereby Mitchell, Grant and Phetan would be secured. Grant and Mitchell are veterans and tirst-class bu 1-playert-:, -while Phelau is a most promising youngster. IT IS SAID THAT JOHNNY KLING will likely become backstop of tho Cardinals. At least, Mrs. Britton has stated that she is ready to pay any amount necessary for his release, and in these days Buch a sentiment usually prevails. REPORTS FROM CAMBRIDGE ARE to the effect that Brickiey and Wendell, the stars of the Harvard eleven, are suffering from Injuries so severe that they may bo out of to-morrow's game with Dartmouth. At that, it is probably well that they will not be called upon to play after they face "Lefty" Plynn, PhUbin, et ai.

The local eleven easily defeated Trmsylvania and Central Universities and loat only to State. Hanover has had rather a poor season. but during the past week has been bending every effort in order to make a good snowing In to-day's contest. The team is said to be In good condition and confident of giving the Cardinals a hard game. Cosrh Larson gave his men a long slg- nil practice yesterday and put them througn several trick formations. At tho end of the afternoon's work he announced Mpuc f as well pleased with the eleven. While the Cardinals will, of course, miss Ewald. who is out on account of Injurie and who wjs almost the whole team In the came asalnst State, the form shown by the other players Is such that no fear I.t felt as to the outcome of to-day's game. .

The liveliest Interest Is being felt here in the came which will be played In this city Suturday between the Lexlnitton High School and the Loulsvlllo Male High School football teams. The two elevens are believed to be very evenly matched ar.d. although Loulsvilie has a shade the best of the record, the Lexington boy? are preparing to put up the game of their lives, and tne visitors win nave to make a desperate battle to win. A bin rally for the Lexington team will be hew to-morrow nigin at tne y. ai. u. a hiilldincr. and a large crowd Is exnept- ei to be on hand to help enthuse the city s champions, bpeecnes win be made l v I'nyicai uirt'tiur u. i. iiuise, manager John Barclay and Capt.

COMMERCIAL CLUB AMTTTJAL EVENT DECIDED SUCCESS. "HAMMER" KNOCKS FOIBLES AND FAILINGS OF MEMBERS. PRESIDENT CARICATURED Sustained by luscious pun'kln pie, sweet 'taters and chicken, accented by melodies of voice and instrument and punctuated by oratory of a typical kind, thj annual Harvest Home dinner of the Louisville Commercial Club was held last night In tho main dining-room of The Scelbach. Lured by tho triangular combination above mentioned, some 300 old and new members of tho Commercial Club, some othera and then some more, partook of the pie, were captivated by tho melody and stirred by the speakln'. That wasn't all. The speakers were Lieut. Gov. E. J. VcDermott, the guest of honor; Thomas W. Thomas, a prominent attorney of Bowling Green, and the Rev. Dr. John M. an der Meulen, the new pastor of the Second Presbyterian church. Ail delivered stirring addresses, Interpolated here and there with flashes of humor, and all characteristic of the occasion. That wasn't all. Shells of new-picked pun'kins, sheaves of fodder, ears of yellow corn and brown autumn leaves adorned the tables and decorated the walls. Plates ot cracked walnuts and hickory nuts at each diner's elbow accentuated the autumnal atmos-pl'ere. The dinner began at 7:30 o'clock. The diners, arriving at theii places, rose at the call of Toastmastet F. SI. Gettys and Joined voices in the singing of "America." As they sat down there burst out from the two entrances to the dining-room a souad of dirty-faced, ragged newsboys, shouting "Wuxtry." Harvest Home Hammer. It was the debut of the Harvest Home Hammer, a publication which the Commercial Club issued for the occasion. On the front page was a caricature of President John M. Scott, beset by conventionalized imns. renresenting tbe every day worries of a Commercial Club president, and all the pages were filled with stories poking tun at tne various organizations, people and activities of Louisville. The proposed merger of the commercial Club and Board of Trade was the butt of most of the fun. That wasn't all. After a 'number of selections had been rendered by Miss Jane Keigwin Webster, soloist: Mathias Oliver, violinist, and Walter Kursteiner, flutist, the assemblage rose and sang "My Old Kentucky Home." In the chorus Toastmaster Getty? detected a tenor voice, rising above all the others. He at once announced his discovery and a clamor for the possessor of the voice arose. It was Edward G. Hill, an attorney. Mr. Hill finally consented to sing. He rendered two darky ballads that took the audience by storm. Not content, the audience clamored for more song, and U. C. Rogers, a reporter, sang, '"Cause I've Been Hoodled," to several encores. Still that wasn't all. ... Toastmaster Gets Busy. Mr. Gettys next assumed the arduous duties of the toastmaster. In a short preliminary speech, he succeeded in acquainting those in attendance with the spirit of the occasion, and the speakers collectively. He then introduced D Van der Meulen, whose subject was "Psychology and Business." Dr. Vander Meulen, wondering that he. a man of the cloth, had b'een Invited to participate, defined one attitude toward the ministers by relating a story of a Scotchman who passed a well from which the cries of his parson emanated. "Help mo out! Help mo out!" shouted the parson. "Help ye oot? Help ye oot? said the Scotchman. "Why, mon. It's only Thursday, and wlia' In the world wou bo the gned of helpin' ye oot before the Subbath?" , Dr. Vunder Meulen. when the laughter had subsided, added, however, that the men of the cloth were not still being regarded as tho Scotchman regarded his parson. The day had come, he said, when the business men and the church were In closer touch. Not Infrequently, he said, was the business man to bo found filling a preacher's pulpit, nnd he declared that the minister waa beginning to become more and more Interested in matters of business. ... Age of Business Man. "This is the age ot the business man, said Dr. Vander Jlculcn. "There was a time when the o.der professions ministers, lawvers, physicians and teachers held the day. But for the nonce, at least, the business nian is having his Innings. He la at the bat." The speaker declared that the burden of responsibility which formerly has rested with the older professions now rested upon the shoulders of the business man. Dr Vander Meulen took up the theme ot psychology In its relation both to the business man and tho preacher. He told of the necessity for the minister fitting himself for his work not only by the study of theology, but by the study of other things as well. Including that nf psychologv. He said that psychology, from this viewpoint, had resolved itself Into a study of the Individual, for men a'e of all tvpes, he said, and of different beliefs, Weals and possessed of varied idiosyncrasies. He spoke of the factor of imitation, explaining how It could be applied to business and to the church. Concluding, Dr Vander Meulen told another storv in Scotch dialect, this time one of appealing humnn Interest, and delivered this time In a way that brought tears. McDermott's Address. "Commerce cannot well thrive In any land where there is not an orderly Government." said Lieut. Gov. McDermott. discussing "The Business Man as i CIJ-zcn""where the people have not thrift, peace, moderate taxation and a fair administration of justice. In times when var was the chief occupation of men, trade was looked down upon and commerce languished, but wherever com. n.crce greatly flourishes, wealth a-cumu-lntes and luxury spreads, and. though art n,ny for a time bloom In splendor, the sturdy virtues wither In such a hothouse atmosphere. . . r "There Is discontent In our land and In every other land where wealth and freedom relgn. There arc so-ne Just causes for d'scontcnt. but there are always soie ether cnurcn that are not reasonable and that can never be removed. Everybody Is clamoring for his rights; nobody likes to be told nf his duties." Mr McDermott said the Commercial Club had done much for the material side of our lite He reviewed some of the things It had accomplished. He told of the need of the business men giving thoneht to his nublic duties, declaring that' because of the disinclination of some to exercise their right of suffrage, an active minority always governs us. "Twenty-one years ago I gave a great deal of my time to the preparation of our cltv chjrrter. It has been amended by the Legislature since, of course sometimes wisely, but sometimes for ae'flsn and unsound reasons but Its main outlines still remain. In my opinion the Constitution of the State should be bo amended that, with some restrictions for the protection of the State, each city of the first and second class should be allowed to choose delegates to make lt3 own charter and to ratify, or relect It. and that thereafter It should be amended only In the caine way. That would give each city the charter It desired, and the organic law could not be suddenly or inconsiderately altereo wlth-cut the knowledge and consent of the people." Bural Kentucky. Mr. Thomas, speaking on "Rural Kentucky," opened his remarks by declaring that "to almost every land there comes in some form a harvest Ume with ita festivals." "To but few," he said, "Is It ushered In with such mellow lights, such blending of colors, such tang of frost mingled wltn the breath of the South, as In Kentucky. Where in all tbe world do the autumn The oldest Ford is yet a young car with a surplus of "g" strength and power. Slow depreciation is a big factor, in the economy of Ford maintenance.

Rural Kentucky, he said, is unsurpassed by the Highlands of the Hudson, the majestic sweep of the Danube or the mystical flow ot the Rhine. In describing Kentucky, he said, however, he was not like the mon who, because of his reputaUon for veracity, had to get his neighbor to call his hogs when he wished to feed them. Mr. Thomas told of the part Kentucky and rural Kentucklans had taken In history, and of Its being the birthplace of Lincoln and Davis. "The rural Ken-tuckian of to-day," he declared, "clings to his traditions, cherishes the sacred memories of the old hearthstone, is true to his Ideals, but his face is set toward the future. He realized that the old life and the feudal coloring is gone forever, lie is o modern product of the old onder and carries ever with him and about him his chivalric love or truth, his personal dignity, his manly courage and his sensitive honor." Mr. Thomas reverted from time to time to the humoioun vein In accordance with the example set by Mr. Gettys. At the-ieglnnlng of the dinner Smith T. Bailey Introduced a resolution expressing regret that Col. R. S. Brown, long a member ami leader In the Commercial Club, was ill and unable to attend.

In the Franklin Cii'rkil Court, against J. P. Hostelter, his father-in-law, in which Green had recovered ),500 damages for the alienation of his wife's affections, was reversed and rcn.anded for ri. trial, with 'directions for intruding the jury. Tiie transaction by which Taylor coun-f borrowed 4.W0 from the banks of Columbia In lSJi :o pay Its railroad lndebt-eaness reached the Court of Appells to-lay for tbe third time in one of Its various phases, but with new parties. This action is brought by Wade's administrator to collect the amount with 43,000 Intel est, the estate having paid tne bm'c and received. an assignment of the claim. After the bonk had sued for the amount the county made a levy for the payment, a'ld Wade, the Tax Collector, was a psitv. After his estate had paid the bank the county ordered another levy, but rescinded It, and suit against the Tix Collector that year came to naught. Then the county, under a decree of mandamus, made another levy, and G. A. Moldy was appointed special collector. The order of the Fiscal Court, however, did not mention the collection of this special levy, and this suit was brought by Wade's administrator to collect from Moody anl his bondsman. The court held that Moody was not liable. ... A question of the separation of damages gi'-.wing out of a particular tort. In which rre same parties were involved, wis presented m the case of Robert Harp agalnt the Southern Railway Company. The Whitley Circuit Court was reversed. Harp's corn crop and his residence at Jelllco were damaged by the explosion of dynimite In a car. The company .and Ha.'p agreed to settle for the co.-n anj submitted to an agreed judgment tor -KG for the damage to the corn, and afterward Harp sued for $500 for the damage to his residence. The company demurred to !:i. petition on the ground lhat Harp, elected to sue only for damage to his corn, it was a bar to further action for damage to his house growing out c-f the same tort. The court, however, distinguished this from cases cit.d, de-caring that the rule was intended to prevent tne harrassment of a defend int by a n.uitlp'lclty of suits, and the company, having voluntarily agreed with Harp as to the amount of the damages to his corn, could not complain that he afterward brought suit for other damages.

It is not our policy to destroy in thirty minutes that whicn It has taken thirty yearB to create.

When giant corporations use their power lo stamp out competition, to create fase prices and grind down the worklngman, it is time to call a halt.
