Fort Scott, Kan., Nov. 23.-Proseoutlng Attorney C. B. Griffith and Attorneys W. TV. Padgett and J. I. Bheppard have not yet succeeded In arresting any of the Webb City foot race swindlers, but the United States grand Jury, which was In session here last week, Indicted five members ot the gang. They are Bob Boatright, better known aa Buckfoot;" J. P. Stewart, the cashier of the Webb City Exchange bank, E. K. Ellis, O. Q. Stansbury and Bud Gil-lett, the last two being professional Toot racers. The charge is using the malls for fraudulent purposes. Their cases will not come up before the May term of the federal court. In the meantime another attempt will be made to arrest them on state warrants, and requisitions will be applied for next week. Greater Than Croker. Their swindling games are on fake foot races upon which prominent men from all over the United States are pursuaded to place large sums of money under the pre tense and with the understanding that th race is to be thrown in their favor. The game has been In operation for the past two years, the races Invariably belna pulled off at Webb City, the home of the swindlers, where their Influence is greate with the state authorities than Croker's is in New York, and It is boldly and unhesitatingly admitted by one of the gang that the winnings on these fake races during the last eighteen months aggregate $200,000. The work has been carried on in the public eye and under the nose of the Mis souri authorities, who simply wink at the fraudulent deals, of which they are compelled to take cognizance, and the numerous robberies in which prominent officials from all over the country lost their thousands, continue unabated with great rapidity. So daring has this nefarious work been repeated that two and three races have been pulled off each week, thousands of dollars changing hands on a one hundred yard dash, the result of which is a prearranged affair to "bump" the sucker. "Buokfoot and his subordinate confederates have grown fabulously rich in this business, and boast of carrying theii thousands In their pockets. Those Who " Bit." Proseouting Attorney C. B. C-rifflth of this county, has In his possession letters from numerous people who have been swindled In the last few months, ard the amounts they lost aggregate In the neighborhood of $100,000. 'Among those who have recently gone up against the "skin" parne are H. Phillips, sheriff at West Point. Neb., $5,000; W. P. Wells, Massa-lln. Ark.. $r,000; Unknown writer of Chanute, $3,000; Unknown writer of Wellington, Kan., $S,500; J. TV. McIIroy, Fay-ettvllle, Ark., $5,000; Leonard Nelson, Kackley. Kan.. $7,000; Henry Cohn, Colllnsvllle, 111., $1,000. A man from Topeka writes that two of his friends lost $4,000 each by the same gang. The same was tried on J. TV. Sjhuessler, president of the bank of Colony, Kas.. but he failed. An attorney In Colorado writes that two of his clients lost $5,000 each. Only last week, after the expose of the pang, $27,000 was cleaned ur. One remarkable inci dent was a Texan who was induced to go all the way to Webb City to bet on one of the races. He dropped 21.000, but be ing Interested in ore of the bis oil com panies in Beaumont. Tex., he made no complaint, but asked for a pint of whisky and a ticket back home, which was freely given and he left without a murmur, Mr. Davis "Squealed." The gang was exposed some weeks ago by J. M. Davis of this city, a member of the Kansas Leslslature. and a congres sional aspirant, who was swindled out nf in Aueust. After several weeks he exposed the game because his cred itors forced him for the money which he borrowed under false pretences to bet on the race. When threatened with prosecution he gave in. Warrants were sworn out for the five men, but the crime hav. In been committed In Missouri, requlsi tlons were necessary, and the state au thorities only succeeded In catching Gil-lett in Kansas. The gang had wealth and local Influence to back them, and em ployed the best attorneys to fight every f th eround and defeat any at- ,f tn rouse their extradition. Davis attornevs. beinc baffled, then sought remedy in the federal court and the men were indicted. Still the work continues and every day almost, a race is nulled off. Boatright Ellis and the bank cashier, seem to be at the head of the concern, the former two being noted confidence men.

BLOODSHED MAY RESULT FROM COURT'S ORDER TO, STRIKERS Miners Refuse to Vacate Their Camp. They hold that Madisonville, Ky., Nov. 23. The striking union miners continue defiant and remain X ! under arms tonight in their camp near ' the Providence coal mines. x X y ' treat It with contempt.

This refusal to heed the order of the court is GROVES HASJIST A COLD. Mrs. Cleveland Says Her Husband Is Not in a Serious Condition. Prominent Men Selected. Men holding public office and responsible positions, such as bankers, are picked out, as they can not afford to "squeal." When arrangements are first made the victim is not to bet any money, but is simply to j hold stakes, however, upon reaching Webb City, he is Induced to arrange through the bank to obtain $5,000 or $10,000 from his home, and here is where Cashier Stewart gets in his work. After the victim arrives in Webb City he is never allowed to be out of sight of one of the erana- until he is cleaned out. Some of those victimized have sued in Missouri courts and obtained Judgment against Boatright, and while he is worth thousands of dollars, it is all in cash on his person, and the Judgments can not be collected. Under Missouri laws money so situated can not be attached to pay a debt. A short tims ago, however, a party who had a Judgment against Buckfoot in one of these cases, forced him into bankruptcy in the federal court at Springfield, Mo., and he was compelled to "cough up."

There is one incident connected with the i C0JPS2; 'fXZr. operations or tnese connaence men that 's comical, yet it illustrates the clever tactics that they employ. swindled victim went to TVebb City to get a settlement, and failing, the state authorities were appealed to, but they refused to interfere. The man took his lawyer and called on Boatright in the hopes of recovering the money. "Buckfoot" was so smooth and oily tongued that a bit of intimacy was the outcome and a race was arranged between the attorneys and his client. They bet all the money and sent homs for more, consequently the lawyer was cleaned up once and his client twice. Most of the foot races that they have matched to run are participated in by fast men, but one is noted to be the fastest of the two, and he always loses. In most instances the fast man, upon whom the victim has placed his money, falls down and pretends to have sprained his ankle declare that the court's order was a farce, illegal in the extexeme and issued without authority. When the Associated Press correspondent visited the camp today the strikers were eating breakfast. More than 200 were assembled in the camp, with probably a hundred more in the vicinity. There were four large canvas tents, the lodging capacity will accommodate about 200 people. There is much speculation about the re orders have been given General Murray so that he may get his forces In readiness to meet the emergency in such manner. as his discretion may suggest. I would suppose that the increased number In the camp with their continued hostile demon strations would require great precaution in General Murray's perparations, all of which la left entirely to him and will necessarily cause some delay."

Nov. 21 The football team of the University of Kansas closed the season at home this afternoon with as clean aut a victory as has occurred iq the west this year. The Texas university team was defeated by a score of 12 to 0, and the work was done In the last alx minutes of play alter a hard battle between teams about evenly matched for weight and size and apparent football playing abilities. The entire first half and for twenty minutes in the second half the ball was kept near the center of the field and the goal line ot neither team had been crossed or was even in danger. The Texans finally seemed played out and despite brave attempts on the part of the lads from the South to keep the Kansans from scoring. Vincent was sent over twice for touchdowns andl twice did Jenklnson kick the goal. Was Straight FootbalL The result was not accomplished by tricks, end runs, nukes or anything else except the hardest kind of straight foot ball, and there was no inclination on the part of anyone to hold that Kansas had not fairly earned the honors of the day in the stubborn contest and final victory. In the first half both teams played a ragged game of football. The fumbles were so frequent that the speotators became disgusted and both sides seemed to be In the most lamentable condition. Ther was little work In this half that excitea enthusiasm or even attracted more than passing attention. The second half started off much the same way and fumbles caused changes o the ball. The ball was played back an! forth In the center of the field until Kansas seemed to take a brace and with Vincent's change from the line to full back position, some wonderful advances were made and without loss of the ball. Kansas slowly and surely worked It across the field until at length It was possible to push Vincent over. There was Just six minutes more of the twenty-five minute half to play wbn this was done, and it did not pm possible that another touchdown could be made. Kansas again secured the ball on the kick off and without losing it rarrld It through the Texas line time and acaln until Vincent was sent over for the second touchdown. Texans Made a Stand. Just as time was railed, the Texana made a beautiful stand at the last min-ues and It looked as though Kansas might be held, but the chance of another score and the better conditions of the Kansans was telling on the team and they could not withstand the terrtfio rushes made by Vincent, The result of the came leaves but llttld loubt as to the result of the Kansas Missouri came, for It was only a week ago that Missouri was defeated by the Tfxans and the fine snowing maae oy Kansas this afternoon with some of the strongest players out of the game and in face of the fact that Coach Outland ha been on the sick list the entire week and has not been able to jrlve the workers personal attention is most gratifying to the members of the University of Kant sas and th town rrpnorfrs of the team.
