Not only thin tut tho erstwhile 'Wolverine will continue as coach of tho Commodores for five years. This Important announcement was madi lust night, when the annual banquet was tendered the Vanderbilt eleven at Kitfsam Hall. More than 100 loyal supporters -f tlrt team gathered around the festive board and a most pleasant evening w;.tj enjoyed. There wore speeches praising tho boya who ao well carried the coUns of the institution and many other events to make the gathering a memorable ono, but It was not until. Dr. Dudley announced thd plans of Mr. McGugin did tho enthusiasm break loose In real earnest. The popular coach was given an ovation. He responded In a brief talk, during which he thanked the University for tho honor that had been conferred upon him, stating that he had chosen between the North ajid tho South and had selected, tho latter because this was a growing country and furnished many opportunities for a young man. From this time on Mr. McGugin will bo what is known as a faculty coach, as ho will teach "Constitutional Law and Contracts Baaed Upon Engineering Specl-Jlcatlons" in the engineering department. To this work he will devote three hours each week, probably 8 to $ a. m., or late In the afternoon. The rest of the time he will devote to the practice of law and will open on office In this city shortly after Jan. 1. Since coming to -Nashville Mr. McGugin lias made a great reputation. Not only has he been a success as a footbull coach hut lias been just as Bucceasfu'l as a lawyer. He likes the South and Its people, has hundreds of friends here and for this reason. If for no other, has decided to mako his home here In the future. Mr. McGugin was born In Fingley, la., July 'JZi, 1S7, and Is therefore 2S years of age. He graduated in the Fingley High School and tho finished a literary course at Drake University, Des Moines, la. He followed this up with a three years' course in tho Llw Department at the university of Michigan and It wu3 from this institution that ho came to Vanderbilt. Mr. McGugin paid his own way through the last five years of his college career. On behalf of the football eleven Mr. b McGugin was presented with a very Ijhandsome pair of diamond studded cuff niuttans. . The banquet was one of the largest over given the football squad. Not only were members of the faculty and alumni present, but the public, as well, was on hand. Dr. W. L. Dudley acted as toast-master. Speeches were made by Samuel Doug-, las, President of th0 Board of Trade; Bob Blake. Captain of the 1907 tam; Sam Costen, Chancellor Klrklanu, John Craig, J. N. "Stein" Stone.' Jeff McCarn, Manager Palmer and Coach McGugin. Just before the guests entered the banquet hall the football team met and elected Sam Costen, tho crack quarterback, Captain of the IMS eleven. Dr. Dudley announced the resignation of Dr. R. B. Steele, Treasurer of the Athletic Association, who has filled the office for several years. Dr. Steele has been in ill health for some time and was forced to give up the work. He was not prem-nt at the banquet. In hohalf of the Athletic Association ho was presented with a handsome loving cup. Dr. Dudlov rend a letter from Vice Chancellor Wiggins, of Sewanee, In which lie praised the Commodores, and ex-prefKed hTs regret at not being able to he present. A brief history of the Vanderbilt team wiifl given by Dr. Dudley. He stated that the first same was played In 1H90. Since then thlrty-slx different university and three athletic club elevens bad been .played. The Commodores had played all fold 1TJ games, of which they won 90. lost '11 and lied the rest. The team has made a grand total of 3.435 points to the opponents 712. The highest score over made by the team was 97, once against f '(Mitral ' of Kentucky nhd once against MarvvilJe. Fortv-elghl points made by North Carolina In 1900 was tho largest score ever made on tho Vanderbilt team In one game. Nineteen games have been played with Sewanee and .Vnnderbllt has won 13, lost 5 and tied 1. Against the Tigers the local squad had scored "97 points to Sewanee'B m. Chancellor ' Klrkland spoke of clean athletics and complimented the press for Its support of the team. Coach McGugin, In his talk, commended cuch member of tho 'Varsity, and closed with a short ' review of the game with Sewanee. explaining to the guests Just Tiow It was won. NO NEW JOCKEY CLUB Thoroughbred Breeders Decide Not to Form One. LEXINGTON. Ky., Dec. 2 At a meeting of Prominent Breeders -of thoroughbred horses here today It was decided not to form a now jockey club to govern racing in the West. It was tho opinion of those present that clean racing and hotter condition could he secured by conferring with Baring Commissioners of nlher States, and ;i Commission of ten of the breeders was appointed to do this. The Rood work of the Breeding Bureaus of various States was commended. It wag recommended that thoroughbred horses be crossed with common mores.

Popular Young Lawyer and Coach of the Vanderbilt Football Eleven, will Make His Home In this City, CHAMPIONSHIP OF "PREP" GAMES IS IN A VERY TANGLED CONDITION. C. M. A. AMONG THE BEST. COLUMBIA, Tenn.. Dec. 2. (Special.) The football championship for tho prep schools seems to be In somewhat of a tangled condition since the tie game between1 the Columbia Military Academy and Castle Heights here on the 27th of November. It Is a wise man indeed who can pick out the best prep team In the State. C. M. A. has every right to take pride In her team of this year. The gdfme played with Mooney was one of the hardest and prettiest games played during the season on the home ground, the llnal result of the game being G to 5 in Mooney's favor. But the cadets made a touch back which would have netted ttyem two points, If the referee had allowed It at the time, and which, by the way, he admitted nfter the game ought to haH'o been allowed, and If tho cadets had not been beaten out of these two points the game would have resulted In a -victory for the cadets by a score of 7 to 6. The game between the soldiers and Castle Heights was a clean hard fought battle and each team deserved the six points they made and no more. There is ono thing that Captain Hamilton will have to do. next season and that la to train the boys to piny as well away from home as they do at home. In the game with Battle Ground Academy and Branham & Hughes they seemed Jo have lost all of their former spirit and allowed the opposing teams to run over them at will. One case, that is nssigned for the victory of the B. & H. squad over the cadets was tho absence of Quarterback Hamilton from the game, and Lee, the quarter substitute, did not understand the running of the team. Practically 'all of the eleven will be back next year, with possibly the exception of Joe Neal. Dan McGutjin has had his eye on Joe since the great Vanderbilt coach with Yost refcreed a game here last season and saw the splendid work of the soldier lad. Neal well deserves the honors of all prep, half that has been bestowed on him, and If he should enter Vanderbilt will have little difficulty in making the team. Neal formerly lives in Lawrence-burg, but since entering the Academy his parents moved to Texas, and It Is possible that the University of Texas will be after him next year. Capt. Hamilton will begin at once on the organization of a basketball team. This will be the first year that the Academy has had a basketball team, and whllo there is some very good material out of which to get the team, it is not supposed that they will exccll In the art this season. There have been several challenges received already. All the frames played by the cadets this season will be played nt home, as he rules are strict in the matter of allowing the students to go nivay from the school nights. Captain Hamilton will also begin the organization of ills baseball team Immediately after tho holidays, and they are expected to make a much bettor showing on the diamond next season than that made last season, as there Is some splendid baseball material In tho school this year. SOUTHERN LEAGUE AVERAGES. LITTLIO ROCK, Ark., Dec. 2. (Special.) Secretary Miller, of 'the Southern League, who Is compiling baseball averages for the past Southern League season, has almost concluded his duties and says that (he fans In the Southern States will be confronted with more surprises this year to equal surprises last season, when Sid Smith, the Atlanta slugger, was awarded batting honors after all private compilations had given Bill Domrhis, Little Bock first baHcman. batting honors. Miller will not give out anything definite until he lias completed the full list, but he admits that a member of an Alabama team will get. tho batting honors. The name will, however, cause a surprise, he said, and the club with whom he played will produce equal surprise. Shrevepnrt players who will revert to Mobile In next year's circuit acquitted themselves well so far as Miller's compilations have proceeded. Atlanta will produce tho leading piteJier In point of games won. "And this Is not Osstleton, either." says Secretary Miller, who was asked the direct question whether the famous ground rout "southpaw had led the list. The averages will bo announced this week, ns soon as Miller finishes his figures. Many surprises await the fans. , 301 Fourth Ave., (Corn ' Uno".) NASHVILLE. TENN. MARKLEY LEADS PDRPLE SQDAD FULLBACK IS ELECTED CAPTAIN AT THE ANNUAL BANQUET AT SEWANEE. SEWANEE, Tenn., Dec. 2. (Special.) The annual banquet to the football team was given by Chancellor Wiggins at his residence tonight, and the Captain of the team for 1908 was elected, Lawrence Markley being chosen to fill the shoes of Barret. Markley is a senior in the law department, thi? being his second year on the "ream. Last year he played half, as he did the first part of this season, but waa-Iatsr shifted to full. He has been the selection of a number of critics for all-Southern honors. He received his pre-Itmipary training in the Lawrenoe-ville Preparatory School at Lawrence-vlllo, N. J., playing halfback on that team for two consecutive years. In 15Q4 he played halfback on tho Princeton freshman class eleven, coming to Sewanee a year later. He Is one of the most popular members of the squad. Speeches were made at the banquet by Judge Chalkley, Dr. "VV. B. Hall, Rev. V. T. DuBose, Dr. Roscel, Dr. Hxmneman, Dr. J. Lee Klrby-Svnlth and the following members of the team; Markley, Barret, Stone, Lewis, Tom Evans and Lanier. Coach Krwin was unable to be present, having been callM home late this afternoon on account of the illness of some of his relatives. The cry at the banquet was "Out for Vanderbilt, 190S." The coach for the 190S team has not yet been selected, but It is probable that Coach Erwin will be returned. Lex Stone announced tonight that it was doubtful whe:her he would be able to return to school next year. The entire eleven is eligible to play another year, but it Is doubtful whether Stone, Barre: and Shlpp will be enabled to play in 190S. It Is practical certainty that the remaining members of the team of 1907 will return. OFFICERS WILL BE NOMIMTED AT MEETING OF RETAIL GROCERS' AND MERCHANTS' ASSOCIATION MONDAY NIGHT. At the weekly meeting of the Retail Grocers' and Merchants' Association Monday night, It was decided that nominations for officers for the ensuing year should be made at the meeting next Monday night. The nominations will be made at this meeting nnd the election will be held at the meeting on the following Monday night. The officers will be installed Jan. 6. No meeting will be held Dec. 23, on account of the Christmas rush. The committee appointed at the last meeting to confer with Councilman I. P. Cohen In regard to tho bill recently introduced by hftn in the JouncII made Us report. The bill about which tho conference was held provided that no goods shall be placed on the sidewalks. After conferring with the committee, Councilman Cohen agreed to so amend hia bill as to Include the down-town streets. This will apply in large measure to the fruit stands, only ono member of the Association being affected. Th , action of the Board of Trade In regard to the parcels post bill was concurred in. Collections for the past week were reported good. SCHAEFER STILL CHAMPION. CHICAGO. Dec. 2. Jnke Schaefor retained his title as champion at IS-Inch balk line billiards, one shot In by defeating George Sutton here tonight, 500 to -IBB. N. TO CURE YjU What will Sewanee offer In the way ot a football eleven In 1908? Since Thursday's battle with Vnnderbllt this question has been ashed many times by those interested. There is but one answer. They'll come oft the mountain with ono of tho most powerful organizations that ever carried the purple. There will not bo any special change from this year's squad. What can be learned every single Tiser of '07 will respond to the next call. Not a player leaves by graduation and it is reasonable to presume that they will all come haclc for Sewanee realizes that next seaso?! will be their one grand chance to wlpo out past defeats administered by the Commodores. Besides being better qualified in team work and generalship "Erwin, if he returns, will most assuredly see that the squad is better drilled in the forward pass and if they can got the new plays down to perfection there is no reason why Sewanee should not have by far tho best eleven In her history. Vanderbilt' is going to nave a hafd row lo hoe. This will certainly be tho case If the one year rule is -passed. The absence of Bob Blakp, John Crag and Stein Stone is going to leave a hip hole-a hole that McGugin or no other coach can nil in one or two years, rhe Commodores will not only lose these men but two or three others will be found missing and from present !n-ulcatlons McGugin wCl have five or six places, to fill Instead of three. There is not a Stone or a Craig or a Blake in view 'or next season. The tenm will not have a slmrle plaver, un-ess it Is Campbell, that will equal either of these men, but the material on the whole will be only nrd'-nary. Therefore McGugin w'il have to work wonders to warj off defeat. There Is not much In this one x-ear rule which Is belnj advocated. 'The smallcY universities of the South will be the ones to suffer most and not Vanderbilt, as some seem to think. It - tui ma liiiiu ua- Ing, but aftov the first vfar the Commodores would come back with her ui;ual powerful machine But as It stands Sewanee's prcs-pects are the brightest and If tho Tigers. do not have :'ne star i-leven next season they will miss their one grand chance ... Fred Gerhardy. the Nashville turfman, has arrived on the coast and In a letter to Judge John Morrow, dated San Francisco, stated that the game was fine at Oakland. Mr. Gerhardv went from 'Frisco to Los Anp-eles. where he will put In tho winter. Here is a very Interesting article on the batteries in the major leagues clipped from tho New York Sun: "In both the National and American leagues this year more batsmen fell off In their averages from the year before than gained. In the National League forty-four batters fell off and fifty-six gained, and in the American fifty-one gained and sixty-two retro-gated The topmost batter in each league Improved on his 1006 figures. Wagner, the NationaV-League leader, who also held that position in 190G, gained eleven points in 1907, while Cobb, the American League leader, gained thirty-two points In 1907 and rose from sixth to first place. "The first seven batters In the National League all gained this year. Among these Is Dan McGann, the New York National's first baseman. There-has been much talk tho last two seasons of how McGann has slumped as a stick artisan, but the figures show that McGann is among the first ten hitters, that he gained sixty-one point this season and that he Improved his rank by sixty-four poipts. Pretty good for a batter who Is on the down grade. Magee and Beaumont are other batters who made big jumps. "The biggest increase In the National League was made by Richie, the Philadelphia pitcher. He advanced 113 points. The biggest decrease was experienced by Ferguson, the New York pitcher. He shot from second to 149ta place and made the tremendous backslide of 278 points. Lumley and Stcln-feldt, two first-class hitters, fell off materially. "Two noted performers with the ash in the American League who fell foul of a diminishing average were Lajoie and Keeler. Lajoie waa reduced Bix numbers In rank and was fifty-six points poorer in average than in 190C. Keeler fell from eleventh to seventy-third place and fell off sixty-eight points. The biggest gain was made by Bill Donovan who climbed from 148th to thirty-ninth place and Improved his average by 145 points. The biggest loss is charged to Wakefield, the Cleveland catcher, who dropped from twenty-fifth to 146th place and sliced 145 points off his 1906 percentage. Griffith's now in-fielder, Harry Nlles, took a big jump forward, aR di'd Al Orth. Joe Yeaker. whom Griffith traded to Leuls, fell off considerably, and so did Ttlclrey, whom Griffith got in exchange for Yeager. Of the New York Americans, Orth, Morlarty, Laporte, Klelnow and. Hogg gained, and Chas. Klberfleld, Williams, Hoffman, Conroy, ICeeler, Thomas, Blackey and Newton lost. A notable gain was made by Pitcher Killian, of Detroit. He soared from 123d to sixth place and bettered his batting average 150 points." ... Johnny Carr, shortstop and second baseman of tho local club during the past season, has been sold by President Kuhn to the Dubuque, la., club. Carr Is slated for manager of Dubuque. He left for Nashville, but his work on thn whole was not up to Southern Leaguo calibre. Many of tho other players on the local roster are slated for sale. ... The science of baseball Is limited today as it was limited back in the '80s and the '90s to the ability of one player to outguess another player, and that., in brief, is all there Is to the whole proposition, says Elmer Bates. It was quite as necessary for a pitcher to know what not to offer up to Brouthers and Anson and -Browning as it is for the modern pUcher to know what particular balls to keep away from the Wagners and Lajoiss today. Tho guessing contests between the base runners and the catchers were fully as exciting in the days of Harry Stovey and Charlie Snyder as they are in the days of Ty Cobb and Billy Sullivan. Was "Old Hoss" Badbourne, when, singlc-handed.he won the flag for Providence, less "scientific" in outguessing the great batters of those days' than are .the Browns and Pfelsters and Donovans in outguessing the Cobbs and SAM COSTEN Vanderbilt's Fast Quarterback, Who Was Blectcd Captain of-.the 1908 Team Last Night. TOMMY BURNS NOW THE CHAMPION HEAVYWEIGHT LONDON, Dec. 2. Tommy Burna, oi America, knocked out Gunner Moir, of England, In the tenth round before the National Sporting Club tonight. Englishmen never had' great hopes of the ability of their representative to regain their lost honors In the boxing arena, and In a somewhat exciting contest the American champion had a comparatively easy task in disposing of Molr's pretensions and socurlng Cor himself the title of heavyweight champion of the world. After the first round-Burns' victory was certain, and in tho tenth, when the gunner failed to rise to the call of time and was literally cut to pieces, Burns left t the ring with scarcely a mark. Moir owes his .right to participate In championship matches more to influence than to merit, and hia defeat, therefore, was not a matter of general surprise. Burns proved himself superior In- every detail. He displayed greater science and infinitely better generalship and his blows were delivered with much more power than those of the Englishman. It was an easy victory for the American. Tho ;contest aroused - a greater amount of excitement and enthusiasm than any decided at the National Sporting Club since Slavin's defeat at the hands of Peter Jackson. ' Burns entered the ring the favorite at odds of 7 to 4, which would have been still longer but for the fact that the two titled backers of Moir 'covet ed the Burns money for, a large amount on the cjiance of a big winning In addition to the stake money. Except for the difference In weight and Molr's advantage of two Inches In height, the men wer ' evenly .-matched and in perfect form. In the Hi:.? Burns crouching attitude appeared .to place him at a still greater dlsadvant-. age In weight, while Moir assumed a fairly erect position with arms extended widely and phowed no guard. -The work in the" first round was mostly at. long range, tho fighters sparring warily. Finally Burns landed two heavy blows on tho gunner's neck and ear, the second sending him staggering to the ropes, while the American himself escaped without punishment, avoiding Molr's rushes cleverly. Crawfords and Flicks of-today? "Were Kelly and Bennett and Ewing, when, in their day,' they nipped slumbering base runners at second and third by Xhe dozens, less "scientific" than, are the KUngs and Crlgers and Clarkes who nowadays make such play's" two or three times a season? What "science" of the game, Indeed, does any outfield r of 1907 possess that Jimmy Fogarty, Blllle Lang, Curt Welch and JJm-Mc-Aleer did not have fifteen or twenty years ago 7 What outfielder of today in either league would aiot -willingly surrender all he now knows of tho game In exchange for that, particular "science" that enabled McAleer to know .by. tin? very key In which the crack of the bat was attuned exactly where io go for the ball? Baseball is now and has been for thirty years, and will be, let ua hope, for all time to come, the great and glorious American game. So great and so glorious a gamp it is that it needs no box office boomers, no press agents ' of the club" owners to contribute to its prestige. Especially should the man whose fortunes are chanced on the game pray to be sparrO from those critics in knickerbockers who seek to Illuminate the present by throwing a shadow over the past. Fortunate, indeed, will baseball he If It lives- to see the reincarnation on. Its diamond In brains and in- science or Charley Ferguson, the peerless pitcher MEN &ND WOMEN.

He received a jolt under tho chin, however, which brought. him up. but he soon resumed the in-fithtlng. Moir clinched fiercely. Burns bolnp too clever for his adversary, who began to show signs of the punishment he had received.- In the fourth Burns took a breather and allowed Moir to have just a shade the "better' of a light round. Burns came back again hard in the fifth, forcing the fight from the sound o the bell. He landed a right on the jaw, and a long left swing cut Moir severely over the eye. The sixth round was all in favor of the American, whose foot work completely baffled-his opponent. Moir bo-came very wild in his attempts to get in his right. In the seventh Burns sent home a terrific swing . which made an ugly gash In the gunner's cheek. They cflme to close quarters, the Englishman clinching and thus avoiding the full force of two hard rights. Some holding caused Referee Corri to entr the ring and ho separated tho fighters. Moir then looked like a beaten man. In the eighth, however, he came back gamely and with the evident Intention of trying to stand off the American, but he was fought all over the ring and badly punished. Burns set upon him unmercifully In the following round, administering terrific punishment. Moir was now In a sorry plight and the bell Just saved him from being put out., Burns came quickly to the center of the ring. In tho tenth and forced matters from, the start. He forced the gunner to the floor-with a Phort right arm jolt. Moir' rose, only to be floored again by a hard left on the Jaw. He staggered to his feet, but was an easy victim' for . another crosH on the jaw, and"goIng down was unable to respond to tho call of time- 'Burns had taken, his opponent's measure In the earlier rounds, and although Moir showed: marvelous pluck, ho was equal to the- American In no other respect. A tremendous crowd outside tho National Sporting" Club awaited tho result and the announcement of: Burns' easy victory caused the greatest excitement. and all-round player; ' of George Wright, the greatest- shortstop of any ago; of Buck Ewing, the master of all backstop; J n keeping a pitcher at hia best; of Clarksnn and Whitney and Eufflngtori, of, Morrill, and of Comiskey, of Evans, and McCarthy, of Dunlap and Denny, and of all the grand old heroes of the game who thought nut and put in action the plays that we applaud today? ." W, J, E. MANY GOOD SALES Mule Market at Columbia Shows a Decided Improvement. COLUMBIA, Tenn., Dec. 2. (Special.) There was a good demand for Maury. County mules, here today. The market is looking up considerably. Several, buyers were from the South and from Cincinnati, and many good sal?s were made. R. L. Hayes, of Atlanta, was one of the. heaviest buyers, ho picking up several good, pairs at nice prices. The outlook is very much improved and there Is a general feeling among the stockmen and farmers in this county nnd town that the financial trouble is about over. Yet they realize that money will be a little close for several, months yet, but the feeling is not so tense as it was. IOWA'S 'GOVERNOR SAYS NO MORE PRIZE FIGHTS CHICAGO. Dec. 2.
