TScrdman Smith Command, of this City, Regarded as Logical .Candidate for Neti) Head of the Corps. A orimpaiKn bidding fair to rival anything of a like nature in political circles is being conducted among the visiting delegates of the Spanish War Veterans, for the position of Corps Commander of the state of New York. Principal in the field are Captain Charles Alonzo Simmons, of Tj. Rnrdniati Smith Command, No. 5,'i, S. W. V., also commander of the Eighth Separate Company, of this city and General Eugene Grillin, of New York city. No little rivalry, though in a perfectly friendly way, is manifest between the several contingencies from surrounding cities, and the election, which takes place on Tuesday, promises to be warmly contested. Since the formation of the organization, New York city has ben favored with the election of two corps commanders, while riuffalo. at the extreme west, has been favored with one corps commander. For this reason there is a strong feeling through New York state in general that will not be downed that, as the East and the "West have both with success placed their candidates in the coveted office, the central portion of the state should this time have that honor. Captain C. A. Simmons is, therefore, a logical candidate for the position, and to what extent he will be supported and upheld by his many fri-nds may be learned from the fact that Buffalo, almost solid: Niagara Falls, Jamestown, Itatavia ami Tonawanda, and some New York city delegates will name him ns their choice. In talking with Hamilton Ward, Jr., of F.uffalo, national judge advocate, it was learned th:t F.ufl'alo comes to this city seeking nothing. Mr. War.l sail: "Jluf-falo realiz'-s the honors she has received at the hands of ihe organisation. and socks none at this convention. She has ben honored with judge advocati of the national body, corps commander, which rxi'dtion is now hold by Colonel F. J. War.l and other oHleors cf importance, so that now all she asks is that braiil; be behind the choice of the convention; that a business head may take charge." Although Mr. Ward made no statement to that effect, it was (rained from other visiting delegates that Captain Simmons seemed to lie the man that in their minds would best fill the position. The New York C( rps Assembly, which meets in this city to-day, is the annual assembly of Spanish War Veterans of the state of New York. The Spanish War Veterans are divided, each state being known as a "corps" and each forming a part tit the national body. The programme? for to-day's session i- as follows: Assembly of delegates, in Common Council chambers, 'iiy Hall, where, oil business sessions will bo held. Ill o'clock. Include! in the morning session will be nu address of welcome by A. J. Ilodenbeek. mayor of Rochester; response by'iten-ont-Colonel Francis (J. Ward, commander of the Corps of the state of -New York, Spanish War Veterans; the appointment of committees on credentials, organization of Convention,, reading of stated reports by corps' oJlicers, and the reference of the reports to tin committees. At 12 o'clock an adjournment will be taken. At 2 o'clock the convention wiM again convene, at wh'ch time a business session will be conducted. The reports of the officers will be read, and the reference of the reports to committees will be made. At 3 o'clock another .i.i-jourument will be made, at which time the delegates will board the New York Central train nt the Central avenue station for Ontario IJeach. At 4 o'clock nt Ontario Ieach a clambake and sevtral field sports will be held. The events follow: One hundred-yard dash, three leggcl race, backward run, indoor baseball game, between members of E. P.ordman Smith Command and delegates from the Spanish War Veterans' Commands of l;uiTuio. For nil these events prizes will be cigars. After tho sports Lave been run a clambake is scheduled to be held. Admission to the ball park will L.; granted only to those who wear delegates' badges, which may be secured at the Common Council chambers this morning or afternoon, or at the ball i.ark," by those entitled to them. In connection with the convention here today a very piensant feature In the nature of a reunion of the I'.urTalo commands, of which there are five, will he held. xtlce to this -Cect has lier-n posted throughout the western end of the state, and all comrades have been Invited to Join the Iluffalo contingent la Its advance upon this city. The Iluffalo commands, under the auspices of the Joint City Hoard. S. AV. V., will leave that city on the. 8:10 o'clock train this morning. The regular corps headquarters will be located at the Whlteomb House, but Buffalo headquarters are to be established at the Eggle-ston. Among the prominent officers from nuffalo who will he present at the convention to-day many of whom have already arrived, are: Hamilton Ward. Jr., national Judge advocate; Colonel F. C. Ward, corps commander, commissioner of public works; Captain O. O. Victor, editor of the Huffalo Times, aide-decamp on Chief Crell's starf, and captain of the ISruso -Cnuiracey Command, of Iluffalo; Captain A. I!. Gllfillan, of Liscom Command, also an aide-de-camp on tho national staff; Major C. F. Ftruso, state medical director; Captain Williams, of the Ituckey Command; Captain John T. Ryan of the Hughs Command, and Captain Casey, of the Seyburn Command. A large number of delegates arrived yesterday from New York city. Tliene have taken quarters at the Whlteomb House, where they are carrying on a campaign In favor of fJeiioral Griffin, their candidate, of New York. Though the New York delegates are doing a great deal of talking with regard to the merits of the candidate whom they have placed in the field, the Rochester men are satisfied with a great deal more thinking, and the Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Tonawanda, Jamestown and Hatavla men seem to be affected In the same way. During the convention addresses will be Klvcn by Captain I.elmbach of Brooklyn, Colonel F. . Ward of Buffalo and James I.. Whitley of Rochester. Other officers of the convention are: Senior vice-commander, A. J. Kline, of New York; Junior vlce-commana-er, John M. Thompson. New York; adjutant. I,. D. Fetzer, New York. The association includes a command of veteran sailors, the Neptune Naval Command of Brooklyn. Regular Trip to the PnrK.

CAMP TALKS ON FOOTBALL RULES CHANGES TO BRING ABOUT MORE VARIED ATTACK. GAME NO LESS INTERESTING Alterations Will Make the Plat; More Open and Much Easier for Spectators to Follow Hard and ln yielding Armor Cannot Be Worn Never before in the history of the sport has there been a time when It was more difficult to predict what the various styles of play would be in the approaching season, says Walter Camp lu tho Philadelphia Press. For a few years the rules have been allowed to crystallize so that the coach and players have been given an opportunity of building upon a secure foundation certain methods of play, which have from season to season been developed to higher degrees of perfection. The spectators had progressed In a remarkable manner In the uuderstandlng of the final points of the rules and play until they were very nearly as keen as the officials in detecting anything wrong with the code and had become remarkably clever in appreciating the finer points and formation plays, as well as the duties of the individual players. With It all had come, however, a desire on the part of the spectators of the football field, from their view in the grand stands, to have the game simplified, and this element, combining with those who had come to believe that mass plays, so-called, were dangerous, produced a party of protestants In favor of another form of play and a body-that must be listened to. Whether any form of piny can ever be devised lu a game involving such personal contact that shall be free from danger is decidedly doubtful, but neither the parent nor spectator can be more desirous of this than are the ruicmakers aud players. The rulemakers began their sessions In March, and after having collected by mall a large number of plans of the various followers of the sport and having succeeded In securing many suggestions went into session and continued their meetings as often as the members could get together during a period of some three months. The resolutions passed at their first meeting gave something of an idea of their position on the subject. They expressed the desire to make such alterations as should render the criticism less and to consider lu detail the propositions already submitted and any new ones that might be offered. The result of ail these meetings was the production of the football rules as they stand for 11XJ3. There are two views to be taken of these rules. The first is that of the spectator and the second that of the player. This article puts before the spectator the facts as to tese rules aud the changes that he is liable to see brought about by them. Iu the first place the spectator, as he looks out on the field, will see that its middle section, that is, the space bounded by the two twenty-five-yard lines and the side lines, Is marked out like a checkerboard. The space from each twenty-live -yard Hue to the goal line is a gridiron, as of old. The object of this marking, 33 was the object cf the five-yard lines orlin.illy. Is to assist the referee In determining rapidly distances without resort to a tape measure. The transverse lines throughout the field are to Indicate whether a side has made the necessary five yards in three attempts, but the longitudinal lines used In the middle section are made necessary by a new rule. It will be remembered ttint there wns a time in the history of the same when the quarterback, that Is, the msn who first receives the ball from the snap-back In the scrimmage, could himself carry the ball forward. After some years a law was made preventing the quarterback from carrying the ball forward beyond the line of scrimmage. The new rule of 1003 gives him a chance once more of being a runner with the ball. He will, however, not be permitted to plunge through the middle of the line, but he must go at least five yards out, that is towards the ends of tlie due. from the place player runs five yards out or not. Under where the ball was snapped back. With this marking It will not be a difficult thing for the refereo to decide whether the this rule there may be more cr less dispute as to whether the man goes far enougft out. This would be more liable to prove the case If the quarterback were allowed to run with the ball inside, that Is, between the twenty-five yard line and the goal. It Is hardly provable that there will be a great amount of dispute over this, provided the quarterback runs out beyond the tackle. This is, however, a weakness of the rule, but It is hardly liable to prove serious. The spectators will soon have accustomed themselves to this checkerboard effect. At this point the spectator may expect to see the players as they come running upon tht f.eld present a complete chango of appearance from that of former years, owing to the fact that there has been legislation regarding the heavy armor. Some may even anticipate seeing the contestants appear upon the gridiron as lightly clad as a man on a Tace track, or like the bare-kneed English players. In this the spectator will be disappointed, for while the rules will be strictly enforced regarding the protecting armor. It probably will not be so markedly different In appearance from that of the old. The heavy sole leather helmet will probably be replaced by soft leather with, pneumatic cushions with padding running around the top. From the grand stands, however, the appearence of the cap will not be far different from that of the old. The spectator, however, can rest assured that this season there will be no hard or unyielding substance worn on the players that is not eo padded on the outside as to render It harmless to other players. It is hoped that quite a good deal of this will be discarded. The spectator should also note a change made In the penalty for holding opponents, that is, by using the hands or arms when lu possession of the ball. Instead of losing the ball it means a loss of five yards. This, however, is a lesser penalty than the loss of the ball. Tackling below the knee will no longer be ruled against and In fact this rule has become practically dead. The linesman will also become far moTe Important, as he will be practically another umpire, being charged with the duty of calling and penalizing offside play in the line, tripping and roughing a full-back after a kick. The first thing In the play Itself that will attract the attention of the observer tin-doubtedly will be the formation of the men for the scrimmage. As soon as the ball is kicked off, caught, run with, and the player brought down, the spectator will find that, if the ball has been brought back by those who caught the kick into the middle section of the field, instead of seeing the team line up as of old with a formation play of some kind, taking a tackle or a guard back, he will see what may be called a return to the good old days of football, when seven men were always on the line of scrimmage. The rule this year provides that la this middle section a team must have seven men on tne line when the ball is put In play. What the spectators will see next nobody knows, for opinions are sn txtim styles of p'.ay will be adopted that on !l8t need to be a prophet who before th October could tell much about wh " teams will do when they come to th 1 important contests. The chances Wr the spectators jvill see some klckln- more than formerly. Bt whether Thf' be brought about by the inability 0f !a gain ground when they have only rt back of the line, or simply hy 1? the chances of a high kick and a 0pl mains to be seen. The spectators5; will have the opportunity of KPe.n J done more clearly than in the ' plays, and this Is one of the reenn, ot tlons for the alterations. tonii,. As soon ns the ball gets between th t ty-five-yard line and the goal the t privileged to use the formation nlav, ! " last two or three years, and it IE I : th that they will do so. probabi, The nest thing that will strike th . tor Is when a fullback has kicked th the opponents will no longer rush tin and knock him down. Few amoc- the h! have realized that the reason for thla . ent brutality has been that this m, Pp"' after kicking the ball, if he were ?t T' run up the field and there get the ball k self or put his own man on side so th.. could get It, and gain as much as if v. 1 made a run of equal distance, himself ! 1 ing the ball. In order to prevent this .J"7" ent brutality a rule has been made ren-'" It impossible for a kicker to put his n? side or himself get the ball 80 longT.Vj1 kick carries the bail over the line of .J' mage. aenm. Still another alteration which will be and commented upon by the spectatoT? that when a team has been scored DPon?v, are not absolutely forced to kick off aad let their opponents at once have another portunlty to recommence their runalnir It Is possible now for a side that ha, h scored upon to choose whether they kick off or have their opponents kick off t seems only fair that the side which has h scored upon should be able to exercise th" option thus in this matter.
