The Moberly Signals defeated the Chillicothe Athletics at Moberly Monday afternoon in a close game by the score of 3 to 2. Callahan, who pitched for the Signals, held tho Athletics down to one hit, while the Magic City boys touched Sullivan up for three hits. \Villiams of Higbee did the receiving for tho Athletics and it was a costly error on his part that lost the Athletics game.- With ono man out in the ninth inning and a man on third, Weisner caught a long fly in deep right field and made a perfect throw to the home plate and snut the runner out but Williams dropped the ball and thus ended a fast game of ball. Monday's game probably will close the base ball season in Chillicothe. The past season has not been a success in a financial way. The bad weather at Moberly prevented a large crowd from witnessing tho games. SK UNABLE TO ATTEND THE 'ROAD CONVENTION Immense Crowd Which Canie to Heftr His Speech Disappointed— Has Malarial Fever. A telephone message early Tuesday morning to the CONSTITUTION from Hal Woodside, secretary to the Governor, stated that Governor Folk had taken ill at 10:30 Monday night with .a renewal of the fever attack which first overtook him at Washington, Iowa, a week ago, and that his physician, Dr. Hough, had advised him to remain in his room. Tho consequence was that the Governor was unable to keep his date for the Good Roads meeting at Chillicothe Tuesday, much to the disappointment of a vast crowd which had gathered to hear him speak. Governor Polk was taken sick a week ago with malarial fever at Washington, Iowa, and did not leave his berth all the way to New York where he *was chairman of the Bryan Receptioncommitteeand delivered an address at Madison square garden. He was constantly under a physician's care in New York but felt refreshed after arriving in Jefferson City at noon Monday. He himself telephoned that he would - be in Chillicothe Tuesday, though not feeling at his best. Later however his malarial attack returned and his physician was called. The first thing the doctor did was to demand that the Governor remain in his room until all the fever had disappeared. DR.WOODSONHERE. Dr. C. R. Woodson came up from St. Joseph Tuesday to attend the road convention and hear the Governor speatf. He was a guest at the Industrial Home and took great interest in being shown over the institution. He is the superintendent at the St. Joseph asylum jmd is a brother of the candidate for supreme judge, A. M. Woodson. MANY HERE FIRST DAY OF BIG CONVENTION Norman J.

Woods and Jugge :jd : !in R, Harisfcon of Fayefcta jire gf MT, aad Mra, R. 32 The Interstate Good Roads convention was formally opened at the Luella theatre, Tuesday morning at 9 o'cock, when Norman J. Colman of St. Louis, a member of the State Board of Agriculture, and former Secretary of Agriculture, rapped for order. President Allen Moore of the Chillicothe Normal school was introduced and delivered the address of welcome. Mr. Moore declared it his opinion that this was the most important meeting that had ever been "held in ^Chillicothe. "We have had Sunday school conventions and church meetings," he said. "The preachers have preached and after they have gone the people have 'cussed' just the same. This meeting is important because we expect to accomplish a great work. Good roads delegates are preachers in the highways. There is nothing that will tend to do away with profanity more than good roads." Mr. Moore assured his hearers of their welcome to every home and business house in Chillicothe. Handing tho chairman a great bunch of bright keys he said, "Here are the keys to every place in town except the jail and cala- boose. Only those are closed against you." Norman J. Colman delivered the response to the address of welcome. He said that'tho delegates should not be discouraged at the small beginning. Other associations he had seen grow from very small numbers to very important bodies. "Missouri certainly needs good roads," he said. "We were impressed with this last spring when some families could not even get the necessities of life, owing to their inability to pet to town. "We must adopt a progressive system. What that will bo the convention must decide." Mr. Colman referrde to his own efforts, when Secretary of Agriculture under Presidentj Cleveland, in tho cause of roads. He was, he said, the first federal officer to recognize the necessity for this wonr, and appointed an engineer at the head of the road department to give instruction in the making of roads. "We want a state highway commissioner, or a- superintendent of oads," he said. "We have a tate superintendent of schools and we know how important his vork is. It is almost equally as mportant that the children have roads so that they can get to chool, so that the farmer can market hia produce, go to church and visit his neighbors. "Many think the expense of ood roads will be enormous. It need not be. The state should do ts part because good roads will je for the benefit of all the peo- jle. Missouri in its present fi- lancial condition, being out of debt, can well afrord to contribute to the building of highways which will add to the value of its land. In the same way the counties and various communities can afford to do their part. "All roads cannot be macadam- ized.but the principal ones jshould be rounded up and drained. Drainage is the principal thinfj in making good roads. Without drainage ditches, there is no use inputting in macadam, because it will disappear in the mud." Mr. Colman paid a high tribute to the enterprise ol the people of Chillicothe for making this convention possible and especially to Mr. G. H. Lawson, the manager of the convention. The judges appointed by the board of agriculture to make the awards on all machinery exhibts are Col. Alex Maitland of Richmond, Hon. D. Ward King of Maitland and Judge John Haris- tonof Fayette. The judges for, good roads awards will be named later. King delivered brief but instructive and interesting talks at the morning session on the road question. Adjournment was taken at 10:30 until 1 o'clock. A crowd of several thousand people came to the convention Tuesday, mostlv for the purpose of hearing Gov. Folk speak, No road work was done during the day, except the building of a ce- mont bridge on the Linneus road. Following the meeting at the Luella theatre W. R. Goit of Kansas City spoke in Elm Park. At 1 o'clock D. Ward King of Maitland, the "good roads apostle," spoke about the split-log drag and the road question in general. A large crowd attended the first performance of the ,. Wyoming Wild West show at the fair grounds, which began at 2:30. Tomorrow morning at 9 ^o'clock road work will be done on the Linneus road and the south Utica road. Blade graders will be used on the Linneus road and elevated graders on the Utica road. Tonight's program at the Luella theatre will be as follows: Paper — Hon. John Howatt, Clarksville. Address—Judge C. I. Dempsey, Bowling Green. "Road Drainage"— W. R. Goit, Kansas City.

The part set aside for foot passengers has been, closed on 'account of the unsafe condition of the passageway.
