Central High Meets
Sioux Falls Next
The Central High School foot ball
team will spend this week preparing
for the Sioux Falls game here next
There .is talk now of a post-season
game jbetween Lincoln. High and
Omaha High to definitely settle upon
a state champion. This will depend
somewhat upon the game between
Lincoln High and Beatrice High next
Saturday. If Lincoln should win this
game the championship will still be
unsettled. If Beatrice should prove
the winner, comparative scores would
favor Omaha, since it defeated Bea
trice week ago, and the .Omaha
players concede Beatrice a chance at
turning the trick. ; , i . ;
Although Omaha was outplayed in
the first half of both the Lincoln and
Beatrice games, it did not enter the
two games in the same spirit. In the
Beatrice . game Omaha looked
throughout, likei winner. The team
entered the Lincoln game in a nerv
ous state and threw away several
good chances to score in the second
half, when clearly outplaying its

Ducky Holmes Has v
Something to Say
"I wish to state for the benefit of
the amateur foot ball fans of Omaha,
that the Class B championship could
not be decided by a, game between the
Athletics and ' Nonpareil , Reserves,
because the Athletics is a Class A
team, this season, and the Nonpareil
Reserves lost to the Ducky Holmes
team by a score of 20 to 0, thereby
eliminating both teams, and giving
the Ducky Holmes, team the undis
puted championship, they not losing
a game and only playing one tie
game, 0 to 0,,with the Athletics. We

Famous Haunt of the Down-and--
. Outer Run by Former Prue -
Fighter. : ;
As a relief to the frequent plaintive
recital of political flops, so lamentable
in some instances as to bring about, as
in' the civil war, the separation of
brother from brother, one is delighted
to read of another kind.
This is Hogan's "flop," the word
carrying with it the thought of throw
ing yourself with small preparatory
measures on any place of rest that can
be obtained. Ben Hogan, who estab
lished it in Chicago many years ago,
is dead. But the flop remains. Out
casts can still find a bed at Hogan's
shelter for 2 cents a night payable
strictly in advance and soup to re
pletion at a price a shade below cost.
The fact that Hogan was a prize
fighter before his conversion may
have had something to do with his
methods afterward. Prize fighters
are not without acquaintance with
battered humanity. In fact, if the
blows are received in fair fight, even
knockout becomes honorable. More
over, men of his following deal with
individuals father than with theories.
Consequently when Hogan was con
verted he went after men. Theology
may have tost an able dissector, but
the down-and-outers gained. "I
learned there was more to. serving
mankind than by giving hungry men
words," Hogan once said: "that is the
reason I started the soup mission and
the flop."
No one can ever know the good
that. Hogan did. Somewhere, doubt
less, in the line the soup -and -the
"flop" made all the difference. In his
"Pasha of . Many Tales" Captain.
Marryat tells of the Arab merchant,
about to perish in the sands of the
Sahara, saved by the crust of bread
his little child had thrust into his
pocket on leaving home. Crises of no
less moment may occur in the streets
of great cities. Hogan helped un
fortunates and at the same time pro
tected that greatest of all their re
maining possessions, self-respect. The
2 cents must be forthcoming. Even
if it were "panhandle" there was merit
in giving it up to Hogan, demanding
in return the right to "flop" as the
result of an honorable transaction
carried on between man and man.

American Lad Becomes a Demigod in
Eyei of Half a Dozen
Republics. .
One American Could have a crown
for the asking. He is the uncrowned
king of the tropics, the Cecil Rhodes
of Central America, a demigod in the
eyes of half a dozen republics.
There sits daily in an unpretentious
office at Battery place, New York, a
silent Hercules who is transforming
the American tropics from a jungle to
a fruit garden, who is creating pros
perity, health and peace where only
poverty, "disease and revolutions for
merly luxuriated, who. is busily steel
rail linking Central American repub
lics t one another as a necessary
preliminary to their union into one
powerful commonwealth and who,
also, is plodding to make it possible
to travel from New York, Chicago
or San Francisco all the way by rail
to Panama or even to Rio Janeiro.
Minor C. Keith was a Brooklyn lad
who, at 16, started in a men's fur
nishing store . on Broadway, New
York, at $3 a week, didn't care for
selling collars, socks and neckties
and quit in six months to become a
lumber surveyor." He made $3,000 in
the first year and then went into the
lumber business on his own account,
his father having followed that in
dustry. --
Before old enough to vote he was
raising cattle and hogs on a bleak,
uninhabited island called Padre Isl
and (as long as Long Island), near
the mouth of the Rio Grande. He had
looked over the country- after the
civil war and decided to seftle on this
forsaken territory; Only one other
family lived on the island.
Here young Keith trained for the
battle of life, under rough, nerve
trying circumstances, with two revol
vers never .unhitched from his belt
and with cattle thieves and other
care-free gentlemen all about him
when he crossed to Texas and the
Mexican border to buy cattle. He
rose at 4 every morning, roughed it
for sixteen hours daily, often slept
outside and prospered,
He reared and bought cattle all
over the surrounding territory to kill
tor their hide and tallow. I he beef,
not worth anything in Texas in those
days, was fed to swine I He amassed
a herd of 4,000 stock cattle and 2,000
pigs. Stock cattle were , then worth
$2.50 to $3 and steers brought $1 for
each vear of their are. (Todav. alast
we city folk pay 35 cents a pound fo
the choicest parts of such steers!)
Then something happened to
change the course of Keith's career.
His uncle, Henry Meiggs, was the
famous builder of the first railway
over the Andes and of other epochal
South American lines. Minor s eld
est brother, Henry Meiggs Keith,
had joined his uncle in Peru and had
taken over a contract from his uncle
to build a railroad in Costa Rica for
the government. One day, in 1871,
Minor received a letter from his
brother asking him to come to Costa
Minor's job was to run the com
missariat of the railway. His brother
subsequently died and the construc
tion of the railway was suspended
through the government. Also, to
make possible the money. In order
to carry out his brother's undertak
ing he reconjtracted the coast line
of the railway with the government.
Also, to make possible, the building
of the mountain section tor which the
government had not the needed $6,
000,000, he made a contract with the
Costa Rica government to settle their
external debt which had been de
faulted for thirteen years. He pro
ceeded to London and after many dif
ficulties arranged a settlement of the
debt and all arrears of interest, and
obtained $6,000,000 for the construc
tion of the railway.
The International Railways of
South America "The Pan-American
Railway" is not a mere paper rail
road. Half of it is already built. Con
nection has been made on the Pacific
side with the National Railways of
Mexico, at the Guatemala boundary.
The road runs down the Guatemala
coast and then cuts clear across the
continent to Puerto Barrios, on the
Atlantic side; this transcontinental
line is now in profitable operation,
the net earnings (or profits) in the
first four months of this year having
been $667,545. From midcontinent
the line is- being built straight
through the little republic of Salva

n the meantime a child was born and
was named Mary. The parents of the
divorced wife tools her back into

Drawn for
Petitions to Be Presented to
Government by "Strength
ot Britain" Movement. . '
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
London, Oct. 31. A 'petition ' it
shortly to be presented to the British
government by the "Strength of Brit
ain Movement" asking that the Brit
ish government follow the lead of the
greatest of the allies to prohibit the
sale of alcohol. This remarkable ap
peal has already been signed by 1,000
representatives of the brain power of
the nation, including leading officeri
in the army and navy, directors of mu
nitions, privy councilors, prominent
men in literature, art and music, fi
nance and industry, university and
college professors, heads of public
and secondary schools, prominent
scientist and medicalmen. : ,
The memorial claims thaWtwo
grave dangers stand before the coun
try, holding back the power of early
victory and throwing a shadow over
the vision of peace. One is the wast
ing of alcohol, the other is the im
periling of infant life. Among all the
factors of weakness these confront us
with terrible vividness and they lie
within our own control. With the
weakening power of alcohol removed
our national effort against the enemy
would' gather increased Strength;
with the increased strength and more
rapid supplies our losses in six cam
paigns would have been substantially
reduced. '
Facta Are Enumerated.
The following facts are given con
cerning the effect of alcohol:
It hinders the army, delays muni
tions, keeps thousands of men from
war work daily, makes good workmen
second rate.
Hampers the navy, delays trans
ports, places them at the mercy of
submarines, slows down repairs and
congests docks.

'Destroys food supplies. In twenty
months of war it consumes over 2,
500,000 tons of food,, with - sugar
enough to last the nation eight days,
and uses up more sugar than the
army. . ,
"Wastes our financial strength. In
the first twenty months of the war

"Diverts the nation's strength. It
uses 500,000 workers, 1,000,000 acres
of land and 1,500,000 tons of coal
yearly. During the war it has involved
the lifting and handling on road and
rail of a weight equal to 50,000,000
tons. ;'
"Shatters our moral strength; its
temptations to women involve danger
to children and anxiety to thousand
of soldiers." 'i
The appeal goes on to say' that dur
ing the eighteen months since the
government appointed the Board of
Control its work, though successful
socially, has had little effect 'in the
great industries on which the armies
rely, and the men in the trenches are
betrayed by an enemy at home.

Russia and her prohibition is made
much of in the memorial which con
cludes: .
"We are no temperance reformer
as such. We stand for the great de
sire of all-good people to atrike the
mightiest blow for freedom of which
Britain is capable. ' We support the
demand for prohibition made to the
government by its own investigatora,
and by the Shipbuilders' deputation,
with not a teetotaler among them, in
March, 1911 Believing, in the prime
minister's words, that no sacrifice ia
too great when freedom and honor are
at stake,' and that rich and poor alike
should bear it, we ask the govern
ment to suspend all drink licenses
throughout the- kingdom for the
period of the war. -
"We believe golden moment has
arrived for our oountry; that, pre
pared for the sacrifice by the exam
ple of the king and Lord Kitchener,
the nation is ready for the natural
step that France and Russia have al
ready taken. The suspension of the
liquor traffic during the war, the con
version of the public houses into
homes of refreshment will quicken up
our civil and fighting populations, will
raise a new fire of resolution in our
people and will give to millions the
first opportunity they have ever had
of breaking old habits of weakness
and forming new habits of strength.
"We believe that in. this, as in all
other vital issues, there must be sym
pathy and unity of action between the
allied nations, and we appeal to the
government to be bold and trust our
people, to be strong and follow our
allies, to be worthy of the mighty des
tinies they hold in solemn trust."
