LiKNVKIt. May ft. Clarke and Pa via had
another fracture of friendship today over
a decision of the former and Iavla went
off the ground. The trobule came with th
banes full la the fourth Inning, when Mat
ticks lilt a fly out the first base line. It
truck the line and Clarke said It hit on
the outside, whirl) pavls would not admit.
Hi run woids followed, with the usual re
ault, the umpire being the ciar.
Other features made the game Interest
ing, though It was long; and dragged gen
erally. Colllgan did some grand fielding,
and Maltlrks made a catch that ranked
with It. Put the Ies Moires fielding; was
of two kinds, and the worst appeared at
bad momenta. Denver played aa snappy
ball aa the cold day would permit.
In the first Inning Pes Moines secured a
run without a hit. Ualton was given first,
Colllgan tried to sacrifice, but Olmetead
alerted to try for I)alton at second, falling,
and rowing with the umpire over It. Mat
tic ks forced Haltnn at third. A base on
balls to Nflhoff and an error by Kelly let
in the, run.
Lloyd for Denver made a hit, went to
third on Mctlregoi 'a had throw. Kelly got
a base on halls and was forced. Heall was
caught off the base. CasHtdy was hit by
the ball. Lindsay hi tfor two bases and
McAleese for one.
I)es Moines took a run In the second on
singles by Radiant and Palton, and got
three In the fourth on a three-bagger by
Curtis, an error by Lindsay and singles by
MiOiegor and Halton.
A three-bagger and a single gave Denver
a run In the fourth and further scoring
was prevented by Colligan's spearing of a
high fly, doubling his man at first. In
the next Inning Denver took the lead on
fair hitting and poor play tig by Des Moines.
After this Inning everything was slow,

Speeding Motor ii Smashed, but
Driver Has Narrow Escape Acci
dent at Atlanta Races.
ATLANTA, Ga.. May 6.-John D. Altken.
one of America'a fastest stock car drivers,
had a narrow, escape from injury on the
back stretch of the Atlanta track last
evtnlng when his National forty, going at
seventy miles an hour, dashed into the in
side fence and over the embankment. The
front of the car was smashed, but Aitken
and his mechanician, Wilson, escaped with
a few scratches.
The accident happened In the forty-ninth
mile of the 200-mlle race, when Altken was
about two miles in the lead of his nearest
competitor. The race was won by Har
roun In a Marmon car.
Ono track record was broken, Ralph De
Palma clipping 30.38 seconds off the twenty
mile record for cars of 461-600 cubic inches
piston displacement, made by Robertson
In a Fiat last year.
An exciting feature of the late after
noon was the graceful maneuvering of
Charles K. Hamilton in a Curtlss biplane
at the time the 200-mlle race was in prog
ress. Homllton made one flight of sixteen
minutes, circling the race course repeat
edly at a mile a minute clip.
Tomorrow Christie, De Palma, Horroun
and Lyttle will go after the American
track records for one mile.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 6.-In response
to scores of letters received at the gov
ernor's office since the death of Tommy Mc
Carthy, following his fight with Owen
Moran In San Francisco last Friday night,
urging that Governor Glllett stop the Jeffries-Johnson
fight on July 4. E. Forrest
Mitchell, executive secretary to the gov
ernor, sent out answers today saying that
the governor Is powerless to Interfere.
The abatement by Mitchell, which of
ficially outlines the governor's attitude,
"Gentlemen: This office Is In receipt of
your letter enclosing resolutions by the
Ministerial union relative to suppressing
the Jeffries-Johnson prize fight or contest
July 4, 1910.
"Governor Glllett Is enroute to Washing
ton and probably will not return to Sacra
mento for -a month. Lieutenant Governor
Porter will not be in this office for a week
or ten days. '
"Replying to your letter in their absence,
permit me to eay the governor is not In
favor of prlxe fights, that he has never at
tended one In his life and says he never
will. However, under the laws of Cali
fornia, 1 believe he is helpless to prevent
or suppress this so-called boxing contest,
because the law allows such contest. If
the necessary permit has been granted by
the local authorities. In this Instance I un
derstand this permit has been granted.
"I would suggest you file your complaint
with the district attorney of Alameda
qounty, and If that is a prize fight and not
a boxing contest, he han the right to put a
stop to It. In all probability, however, the
local authorities will be seriously handi
capped until such time as the law ia
amended by the state legislature so the dis
tinction la clearly shown between a prize
ight and a so-called boxing content.
"I have the honor to be, dear sirs, your

gram.) Tho Iowa constitutional prohibition
committee is having a hard time to find
some one to manage Its campaign. The

finally to Rev. M. R. Sawyer of Davenport,
but today he declined the place. The place
of treasurer of the association is also va
cant and nobody can be Induced to fill.
The executive committee has put off or

Wage Struggle Near End.
The Iowa miners and operators who have
been holding sessions for a month today
to fix up the waga scale for next year
have so far succeeded In making agree
ments that they have fixed upon next Wed
nesday as the date for the Joint conven
tion fcr the adoption of the wage agreement
as- a whole. The leaders believe the con
vention will adopt the scale at once and
the mines be reopened. One of the last
of the features to be adopted Is one pro
viding for heavy fines for the miners in
case the agreement is not lived up to.

Oaaollne Damage Case..
The supreme court sent back to Oelweln
for new trial an interesting damage case
wherein a verdict of $2,500 was rendered
against a grocer for having put gasoline
Into a can which finally resulted In an
accident to a child. The can was painted
red as required for gasoline, but two small
children were sent to the store to buy kero
sene and afterwards one of them, under In
structions, poured oil Into a stove to hasten
the fire. She was badly burned. The re
versal, was not because of the general
facts, but because of failure to have before
the Jury all the evidence tending to show
that the parents of the child did not hold
the grocer responsible.

"The evidence taken, and the knowledge
otherwise acquired, force us to the con
clusion that the late chairman of the Board
of Control was the chief factor In causing
the outbreak." Present Board of Control.
This is the verdict rendered by the pres
ent Board of Control In the matter of the
disturbances at the state school for girls
under the Carroll administration.
Governor Carroll permitted the report to
be seen today in his office. The report of
the investigation Is comprised In about 200
pages of testimony of Superintendent Garri
son and subordinates, chiefly in relation to
what Mr. Cownle said or did.
It appears that Mr. Cownle opposed ap
pointment of a woman at the head of the
school. At the time of the resignation of
Superintendent Fitzgerald, Mr. Cownle was.
temporarily In charge, when all ran
smoothly. The former superintendent had
been ill and away and discipline was lax.
Soon after Miss Garrison took charge
On March 15 an outbreak occurred and
the conclusion Is that continuance of the
trouble was due to the sensuMonal reports
In the papers.
"Miss Garrison had an exceedingly diffi
cult position to fill," says tlie report, "was
Inexperienced In the work, had much to
learn and no doubt made mistakes."
In December, according to the report, Mr.
Cownle asked that the girls be permitted
to dance at Christmas time. The superin-
lendent objected. Mr. Cownle said he
would not belong to a church which did j
not permit dancing.
In January Mr. Cownle had complained to
the superintendent that he had not received
letters from the Inmates of the school, that
their communications to the board had been
Intercepted or opened, and said that under
the law they had a right to communicate
with the board. It seems Unit this brought
on harsh words and a quarrel. Following
this the other two members of the board
ordered him to remain away from Mltchiil
ville, which he did.
It seems from the report submitted thai

statement, but this is not Included and wax
