8 THE NASHVILLE AMERICA, FRIDAY, JSTOVEMEEH 15, 1907. iWLL 1'GUGIN REMAIN -HERE? jThisJs the Question That. Is )-: Worrying the Fans. ALL DEPENDS ON YOST -If the Latter Retires From Football Daa -Will Succeed Him at Ann Arbor. McGugin Jives Out a Statement. Other Football Neiys. ..Will Dan McGugin bo the Vanderbilt . football coach In 1908? Will Fielding Yost retire from football at the end of the present campaign? Here are two very hard questions to an-jswer. Both may be answered In the af-v flrraatlve and again they may not. It Is : known that Mr. Yost Is considering whether or not to give up duties on the 5 gridiron. He has Intimated that he will, v- lt ls. known that, the Wolverine institution wants McGugin If Yost retires. During the past several days many of the Northern and " Eastern papers have published" reports to the effect that Dnn McGugin is to succeed the man of .'"hurry-up" methods. It has been said that if Mr.- Yost wins tomorrow's game from Pennsylvania that he will be ready to give up work, on the football field; ho is going to best Penn, or the Easterners at all hazards, providing, of course, it la by honest methods, and then turn the ln-structorship of the Wolverines over to some one else. Mr. Yost, so reports go, Js getting along in years, he is tiring of football, strange as it may seem, and he wants to devote all of his time 'to his mining Interests in old Virginia. Dan McGugin has been named as hla successor. A Chicago message says: . "Aeeordinir to word received from pan McGugin, the former Wolverine star and present coach of the Vanderbilt University team, he Isjikelv to be head coach of the Michigan football team next year. "In a letter to a friend here McGugin said: 'J have been given to understand that there will be a place for me at Ann " --rbor when Yost decides to give up coaching I do not believe that Fielding will be at Ann Arbor long, as he Is as much of a business man aa a coach, and for that reason is anxious to get out of football and enter some other sort of business. Mr. McGugin Informed the writer yesterday that he made no such statement as ' this: he did not write a letter to a friend in Chlcagosto this effect. Mr. McGugin, when informed of the many reports going the rounds about him leaving Vanderbilt, authorized the following statement: "So far as I know there will be no change at Ann Arbor. Yost has done -wonders P there' in every way. The teams have been of a high order and all Michigan people have the utmost respect for Mr Yost, especially on account of his manly Influence. It Is very doubtful -whether Michigan will ever let him gp o long as he is willing to stay. However, he has . several times intimated that he Is going to give up this line of work before long. "I have been told by people who nre in a position to know, that when Mr. Yost was willing to coach no longer that I would have first call for his place. "There is many a slip between the cup and the lip, however. . and, of course. I am awaro that Michigan would never be so foolish as to expect mo to fill the shbes of Mr. Yost. "! am frank to" sny that. Vanderbilt. . as a place . to coach, appeals to me us much a my alma mater. However. Ann Arbor Is only a few miles from Detroit, and is connected by Interurban lines, and with some ambition to be a . .successful lawyer. It will certainly be best to be near one's office." If McGugin is to follow his chosen profession, that of n lawyer, there Is no question but that leaving his place of business oach fall Is proving a handicap to him. The wholo football population of Nashville wish him success, no matter what business he may follow, and yet not only football followers desire him. to remain here, but many who know nothing of the game. Without a desire to exaggerate, the writer docs not hesitate to sny that since McGugin took charge at Vanderbilt. the 'ity has received more advertising than Xrom s other .source. And I do not bur the hustling Hoard of Tnwta. The organisation has sent out nirculars. yea. many of them. Through the Board of Trnde the citv has gained much prestign Throughout tiie country: still there lias not. been one single niTa.ii promoted by this organization that has rIwjii Nashville the advertisement that the Vanderbilt football eleven has'. Hardly a night Dii;;s"es but what messages are sent Kast, West, North and South, about tho Commodores. Hut getting back to McGugin. Judging from the ton'! of his statement, it looks like he Is going to leave. If Yost trims Pennsylvania tomorrow the veteran Of the gridiron will probably bo ready to give np his place at Michigan. Jn this case Dnn MeGugin will certainly succeed blm. However. Vanderbilt will not give him up without a tight; not a tight, exactly, but every effort will be made to Induce him to stay.

If Chattanooga really wants to enter Southern League company local club officials are willing to grant this opportunity, although, of course, at the. Little Rock price. Chattanooga citizens may not consider the offer a bargain, yet since the local club 1s not anxious to sell", and since Shreveport's franchise is held at a similar amount, the price asked, 518,000, may not be regarded us out of line because players and claims on players go with the sale of the franchise and Southern League's rights. This much has been decreed at the meeting of the Little Rock Baseball Association, but It is not believed, however, that any UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA ELEVEN IS SUSPENDED ATLANTA, Ga., Nov. 14. A special to the Constitution from Macon, says: Prof. H. T.

The 'specific charge is that in tho football game between the University of Georgia and the Georgia School of Technology in Atlanta. Nov. 2. the University of Georgia used four professional football players. TROUBLE-MAKERS TO TALK OF PEACE REPRESENTATIVES OF CENTRAL AMERICAN REPUBLICS GET TOGETHER. WASHINGTON', Nov. 14.

Another Erowohiw apostle who i. to suffer from the Evans ax is Edmund Hughes, postmaster at Mt. rieasnnt. Al. the conference of U.c Evans-Hale-Sanders faction in Nashviil Wednesday it was decided to remove Mr. Hughes and appoint Mrs. Sarah L Orojrory, of Mt. Pleasant, to the place. This Is n fact, in spite of thi denial of the statement by the Republican leader:. Mrs. Gregory is the wife of Hon. K.'U Gregory, of ML Pleasant, uml is fully qualified lor the place-. sale will be made. President Kavanaugh is lenown to bs in favor of . Little Bock remaining in the league until 1910, .when the agreement between the present clubs In the circuit will expire. The offer, however, goes, and if the Chattanooga Street Car Company, Sammy "Strang" Nick-Hn or his father want to invest In a Southern League franchise Little Rock's is for sale. Local directors say tnat tney have heard nothing at all from Chattanooga regarding the purchase of the local franchise contrary to manv pub lished reports. President Rather says he received a communication from a Chattanooga newspaper man asking if the franchise was for sale, and he answered at that time that it, was not. Prof. Holmes slated that he had preferred charges against the University of Georgia on last Saturday, and had com-mlnicated with Prof. Sanford, but 'failing to receive a renlv he had ordered the suspension. Prof Holmes also said that tie nau nau a conierence witn 1 ootii Georgia and Tech authorities on the eve of the game that resulted in the charges, and the deliberations at that time were of a sensational character. The, University of Georgia was scheduled to play Clemson in Atlanta on Nov. 16 and the Alabama Foloytecunlc Institute (Auburn", on Thanksgiving Day, but these games have been cancelled by order of Vice President Holmes. QUAIL SEASON OPEHS TODAY LARGE CROP OF BIRDS IN THE FIELDS AND HUNTERS ARE READY FOR SPORT. The season in which quail may bo shot was opened today, and hundreds of huntsmen are In the held with gun and dog. The crop of quail is far larger than for many years, and the sport to be had by tho "early bird's" is without limit. Tho season is two weeks later than last year, and the birds have had that mueh more time in which to grow .strong. No locality or county is favored over another by the Bob Whites, and they may bo found in quantities in the mountains or upon the plains or In the valleys. Davidson County has her share of the crop, and good sport is expected -by N'ashvilllans who can not find time to take a long run for a day's shooting. Any number of Nashville people got away on the night trains Thursday night, however, en route to a favorite field, and the Union S:ation at times could be mistaken for an armory or a kennel without reflection upon the observer. Each hunter Is equipped with a dog,' a bag and a gun, and boars his credentials in tho nature of the "huntsmons' license." which is required by law, or has the writien permission of the land owner upon whose property he proposes to shoot. The wise ones have a license, for with a license one may shoot with the verbal permission of the ' owner, but If he has no license he must f.e armed with written permission,, or the "Wardens will get him. Col. J. H. Acklen, State Warden, stated Thursday-night that 'the quail crop was unusually large, and would afford shooting for half the people In the State. NEW YORK BANKER COMMITS SUICIDE C. W.

PURCHASE PRICE IS $4,000 New Tax Digest Is Received by Comptroller Dibrell From Printer State Board of Equalization Will Meet Next Week. . Col. If. :c. Alexander, Assistant Adjutant General, and Capt. James F. Hiiger, chief distributing officer, . will return this morning from Knoxville whore they have been engaged In closing tho deal tor the new rille range and camp site for tho Third Tennessee Regiment. It has been the dj-siro of the Adjutant General and his . associates iri tho Tennessee militia to establish a permanent rJfio range for each o the Tennessee regiments, in order that practfee may be conducted and the general work of the militia caried .on at various intervals between the times of encampment. Heretofore, a number, or tho companies have maintained riile ranges on a small scale, and wijile these have proved very satisfactory, the office lias experienced some trbublo in securing a desirable camp site each year. When tho time came for selecting a camp site for the Third Tennessee last summer, Col. Alexander made a personal Investigation of the property for-the purpose of establishing a permanent range near that city. The property near Fountain City; which Included about 130 acres, was .selected as the site last summer, and tho conditions there proved so satisfactory that the officials were prompted to consider it aa a favorable location of a permanent range. Accordingly, plana were at once begun to make tne deal. The abstracts were prepared and forwarded to Washington In order that tho War Department might be fully acquainted with the title before indorsing tiie transfer. For several weeks tho matter lias been alowed to remain in that condition, but upon hews being received that the transfer was approved by the Attorney General, tho Tennessee authorities proceeded to close the deal. The property is considered very valuable lor the. purpose lor which it was purchased. The authorities will provide a ride range which will bo permanent, and it Is also probable that it will undergo other changes necessary to make the site a' most desirable camp. The purchase price paid lor the property was New Digest Received. Comptroller Frank Dibrell has received tho first copy of the new tax digest" from the printers, and tho books will be ready for distribution in about ten days. The now digost Is the most complete ever published, containing all the laws relating to the subject of taxation, with opinions of the Svipremo Court, and Attorney General.
