' S 'ILLINOIS IN FINE TRIM. 'PLAYERS IN THE BEST OF CONDITION FOR :WISCONSIN GAME. , Tcant Arrives from Champaign This Forenoon and Will Stop Over Chicago Until 3 O'ClockOnly Fear , of the Orange and Blue Is O'Dea. Kicking Badgers Are Confident ::' and in Shape for a Fast Contest Michigan Eleven at Wayne, Pa. Champaign. Ill.. Nov. 9.--Special.-4111- Mots' football team put the finishing touches on their practice this afternoon before meetine, Wisconsin. twenty minutes being de- N'oted to hard scrimmage work and the rest ,ef the time to signals and kicking. Ten min..utes each were given to offense and defense, the team showing splendid form against the scrubs. Martin, a substitute half back. ,especially distinguishing himself carrying 'the ball. The scrubs were given the ball on twenty-five-yard line. but did not succeed in scoring at any time. In the punting department Illinois will no doubt be at a disadvantage. although John 'ton Is the best kicker the home team has In years. The defense of the eleven is , remarkably strong, but the renowned punts, 'lace. and drop kirks of O'Dea are greatly -feared. ant a kicking game Would certainly be a losing one for Illinois. Outside of this ,,advantage conceded to Wisconsin, the en,th usiasts and coachers here look for a close game. , Nineteen players will compose one-third ' ef the party going in the morning, fifty stu.-dents or more having signified their intention ,..1 making the trip. and this crowd will no doubt be greatly increased by alumni and ;friends going from Chicago. The players 'tnaking up the squad are , McLane, center; Briley. Elkas, Clayton. guards; Lindgren. Lowenthal Pollard, tackles; Hall, Francis. Dowd. ends; Adsit, !Jutton, quarter backs; Stahl, Wadsworth, Lundgren, Martin. Chamberlain, half backs; - Johnston, Lewis. full backs. - All are In good condition with the exception of Stahl and Wadsworth. and as they bay, rot been worked the last. few days It is probablo they will be all right for the 'game. - Madison,' Wis., Nov. 9.--ISpeciall--Coach J-ing took the football squad out to Randall Yield today and worked them behind closed , gates- The work was fast and full of snap and ..tiasn. and it is quite evident that the Badgers are going to be In excellent shape for Saturday's , game against Illinois. The varsity was given about tWenty-fiVe minutes Of offenvive and five minutes of defensive work. The athletic council today decided that Larson was not eligible to play in Saturday's game. This is a great disappointment. as Larson has been playing far the best game at bait of any of die men for the Lint week. Milwaukee, Wis.. Nov. Wis- I constn-Iiiinois game will be the big event of the season OTI the gridiron in Wisconsin and the uniNermit y rooters are preparing for a large turnout. Manager Fish.r estimates from this large advance sale there will be over 6,000 in attendance. The - fact it will be the last appearance of O'Dea in this city will be a big drawing card. The Wisconsin team has recovered its form and. with the exception of O'Dea, is now in as goed condition as it , was previous to the Yale game. Comstock will not play on Saturday. Should O'Dea be injured -Driver will take his place at full back. Over 0345) of the university students are coming from Madison for the game. and these. with the rooters from Champaign and alumni from Chicago are expected to give Milwaukee an exhibition of football enthusiasm such as it has never witnessed. - The Illinois- eleven will arrive in Chicago att 11:15 this forenoon and will go to the 'Victoria 1-tote!. It will leave for Milwaukee at 3 o'clock In the afternoon over the Northwestern. During the stay of the team in Chicago it will be given .11014 exercise in order to be kept in condition. Sb-veral small bets were made among local alumni of the two institutions yesterday Illinois alumni takinic even money they wouldn't score and asking 2 to 1 on the game. but this Witwonsitt alumni objected to giving. The showing of Illimole against Michigan and the fact Wisconsin has hot shown any evstematic offense in its game make the alumni think the contest will be a close one. Se,.eral Michigan alumni expressed -the opinion LI it they would not be at all cur-prised to see Illinois win. although for the sake s,f their game with Wisconsin Thanksgiving daY they would prefer to see the Badgers win by a tinge score. The lust game between Illinois and WISCOnSin was phiyed at Madison in 18'93, and resulted in a tie. Inc score being 10 to 10. LIGIIT PRACTICE FOR THE MAROONS. Stagg Is Taking No Chanee of 'glue. ", log Ills Players. - Rather than allow his men to become bruised up and go into, the game with Northwestern Saturday in a battered condition Coach Stagg gave his men hard signal practice yesterday. and did not line up his.teams against each other. It was a disappointment to the crowd. but they staid throu;ti the long afternoon watching the South , side Academy tea pr and the varsity scrubs fight out a little practice between themselves. Flannagan. the big guard. who was displaced Ervin.. did not come out yesterday. as he was not tn condition to do any work. and for almost half an hourthe-varsity practiced without a guard In his place. Finally Stagg called Ervin out of th e, second eleven and put him in Flannagan's piece. He showed himself to be speedy and man-tied to get around fast when the Interference set mg his way. Ilia playing lately has been exc. :tonally good. He weighs 1St; pounds and may play Saturday at guard. Schniabl. at end. is being put through the mill In liopes of developing him into a good substitute at left end. His ankle Is still weak. but he gives promise of getting around later in as good form es Ile did last year. He went through the signal practice quickly last night. Sheldon was put at end during the last part of the practice. and may play a part of the game Saturday. alternating with Schmahl. - As the team stands it will be a strong combination which talc. Northwestern tomorrow. Barring a few bruises as a result of the hard practice this week the team is In good shape. Henry and Hamill at half. with Slaker at full back. will mese up the varsity back field. which will give the men from Evanston considerable trouble. Xennedy le not playing his best game. as he is suffering front a severe case of charley horse. Which he received in practice a few days ago. The oilleiala for the game. Saturday have been )' accepted by both sides, and are: Fred Hayner. umpire, and Harry Hadden. referee. Stagg laughed at the idea he had a representative at Evanston watching the secret practice. and also that the purple team was getting discouraged about the practice behind closed gates supposed to be going on at Chicago. Stagg said he had no idea td sending a man to Evanston or even having any Special practice for his team. staiat also denied yesterday that any corr.- smormence had passed between -him and Baird regarding a game, but said that he had simplv granted a requeNt for side line badges from Baird, and that he had also received a letter of thanks from the Ann Arbor manager on that account, which. he mild, explained the two letters which were sent trrm Ann Arbor. "'FINAL WORK AT NORTHWESTERN. Purple Perfecting Ito Play for Tomer- rotr's Game with Chicago. The tvittisil team of the Northwestern University tseik its last hard work before the Chicago game yeserdays and today will simply line up for &lanai practice. The olay was not har& but was long and tedioue. Hollister had Paul Noyes. the cid Captain. to help him, and the two worked together all afternoon. The first thing Hollister did ai,tut to show the men how to stop Chicago formations. and he kept them at it for an hour. Not much was accomplished. but the men were shown something of how the trick could be turned. .Most of the formations were new to the Evanston players. and at first they were totally at a loss to handle them. Special methods of stopping the tackle play of the maroons, a method similar to that timed by Beialt teat year, was, tried and seemed to work. How it will go against the Chicago team remains to be seen. After this work had been eompleted the Men went into signal practice. NVard and Johnson 'were not in the lineup at first. and Gifford and ,don took their placea, These Men are :ow and showed lack of exbertence. Furnblir.g was frequent. and the coaches had to keep the men keyed up most of the time. Pinneo was out with a bruised leg and will not be able to play against t7hizago. Tiijs will necessitate the using of Johnn behird the line. The little back did well against Chicago last year. but be is too light for the purple formations this year. Last evening the men went to the gymnaelum and there nad another signal practice. The plays are going eft smoother each day and the men are gaining confidence. " TILe team is green." said Noyes yesterdaY. "One can easily see that, but the men are playing good ball and will make a fine showing. They do not get away as fast as they should and do not seem to know each ether as they wili soon. I uncerstand they are mostly freshmen. and this accoun,s for much et the lack of smoothness. :it nt rusl,d eft their feet early In the game they will push Chicago hard. Today the students will hold a rooters' inee:Ing and praetice new songs and yells. Even a touch-divan wi,1 set the Ziorthwesiern bleaehers wild. and a close lie0t will raise pandentunitun. Over LUDO will go. and extra seats will be brought into the chapel today io accommodate the crowd. MiCIIIGAS TEAM , AT WAYNE, PA. Loses Two PlayersAVIII Take. Light Work Before Game with Penn. Philadelphia. Pa- Nov. 9The University of ichigan football team arrived here at 7:30 o'clock tonight. There are twenty-tour men in the party. ineluding F. W. Henninger, coach. and Keene Fitzpatrick., trainer. The players are is line body of athletes, each man giving every intimation that he possesses brawn and endurance. All the men appear to be in perfect condition. and the team v.ill doubtless make a fine showing against Pennsylvania on Saturday. la answer to a question Coach Henninger asserted that if Penn does not play a better game than it agalmt Chicago Mich!gan will have a good chance to win. Tile team is quartered at Bellevue Villa, Wayne. a entail b of this city. The tpen will remain there nitil Saturday. Tomorrow and Saturday they will engage in signal practice. but will do no hard work before the game. i'etin Played a thirty-minute practice genie against the scrub today: during which the varsity reeved two touchdowns. Outland and Coombs watched the practwv from the side lines. hut did Duk 1:i.ittic4ate. neither having entirely recovered from injuries sustained In the game with Harvard. Wood ley played at quarter and gave the signals with considerable success. There was less funibling than usuat, anti the team played a snappY game. The second touehdown was made on line plunges from Penn's thirty-five-yard line on five downs. When the Michigan eleven arrived here two of the players. Half Back McLean and Quarter Back Street could not be found. It is believed that when the team changed cars at Bethlehem. Pa.. these two men boarded a train for New York by mistake. Tigers Close Their Gat". - Princeton. N. 3.. Nov. 9.-4S1)ecial.--The gates at the entrance to Osborne Field were shut tight this afternoon against seniors and freshmen alike when the Tigers took their first secret practice of the season in preparation for their struggle with the Indians on Saturday. In bygone games with the red men. Princeton has used double passes and simple trick plays to good advantage. and. although the', coaches are mum to a man as regards the exclusive part of the afternoon's practic. nevertheless it is probable the Tigers will have a few time worn tricks up their s.eeves on Saturday to puzzle the aborigines in case of an emergency. All the varsity players were in the game except the ends. Palmer and Poe. Their places were filled by Lathrope and Roper. On account of their superior weight the new men are big factors in advancing the ball in mass plays. and from present appearances they promise tut give the veterans a citcte rub. Hutchinson was a ouarter back for the tirst time in ten days and quickly fell in with the pace set by the rest of the team. Reiter's loss was compensated for in Part by the appeararkee of Half Back Karel-. He will hardly be in shape to enter against the Indians. Mattis was the only p:ayer with a case of charley horse. and he was relieved at lull back by Wheeler. Mattis. however. outplayed the veteran in the line-breaking game and was nut far behind in the kicking department. - Freshmen Score -Against Harvard; Cambridge, Mast.. Nov. 9.--fSpec1a1.j---In the secret practice game this afternoon on S Idlers' Fir Id the Harvard freshmen scored against the varsity in the first half of ten minutes duration. The varsity was hardly awake and the freshmen, made a touchdown before the regulars were alive to the situation. After that they picked up and Played hard football. The freshmen returned the ball on the kickoff to Daly. who fumbled. Percy secured it and made a pretty run of fifty-five yards for a touchdown. Ellis made the first touchdown from the seven-yard line for the varsity through center. The var5Ity touchdowns in the second half were made by Parker, Donald. and two by Ellis. live in all. Tbe freshmen played a lively game throughout in direct contrast with the way the varsity started. There was a large squad of coaches out. Among them were Dibb len. Lewis. Adams, Wrenn. Upton. Cabot. Fairchild. Bouve. Cranston, Dr. Brooks. Waters. Forbes. F. L. W. Richardson. Summer. Palmer, and Fearing. tackle in '14-9. In addition to these Professor Hollis Dr. Co llidge. and Major Ha llowel were present. This shows that the graduates are getting a little worried. Harvard has practically wasted this week, while lots of old players have been doing their best to brace up Yale. Yale.. Back Field Chosen-New Haven. Conn.. Nov. 9kISpec1al.1--In the secret practice today the back field was made up exactly as it has played daily for a weekMcBride at full back. Richards and Sharpe. halves. and Finck at quarter. Indications are that this will be the set of players to go into the Harvard game next week. Richards and McBride scored a touchdown apiece during the secret drill. the varsity slamming the ball down the field for a score within two minutes after play began. The new formations of the varsity are kept a strict secret. but all rumors assert that they are most effective against the second team. Again. the coaches played Dupee at half and Adams at full back today. and it is now certain that Dupee will go to Harvard as a leading substitute for either half or full back. Elbert Is Princeton's', Beat Shot. Princeton. NT.' 3.. Nov. 9.:--tSpecia1.1Benjamin F. Elbert. 1902. of Des Moines. Ia.. the crack shot or the Princeton University Gun club. this afternoon won the handsome rifle offered by Outing to the undergraduate here who would- win three consecutive competitive shoots. Elbert won the two previous shoots by easy scores. but today Richard McMillan. 11s02. of Princeton. tied him handily by killing twenty-nye birds out of a possible thirty. However. on the shoot-off. the veteran's nerve told and Elbert won out by one bird. killing twenty-nine out of a possible thirty. The shoot was held at unknown traps and angles. Englewood and Hyde Park Tomorrow. A big football game is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. when the Englewood and Hyde Park High School teams meet at the Wanderers cricket field. Thirty-ninth street and Wentworth avenue. Neither of these teams has met defeat thus far this season. and the contest will settle the championship of the south section and go a long ways toward determining the high school championship. Austin and Northwest Division are the only other unbeaten high school teams. Wesleyan to Play Washington. Bloomington. III Nov. 9--ESpecial.1--Washington University of St. Louis will play Ilinois Wesleyan here on Saturday. TAYLOR'S QUARTER-MLE RECORD. Rides the Distance in Twenty Seconds at Garfield Park. - Another world's record added to the fame of the Garfield Park bicycle track as one of the fastest In the country yesterday afternoon when Major Taylor set a new mark for the quarter mile. making the distance in twenty seconds fiat. smashing the record of :21 1-5 made by E. A. McDuffee the day before. In a preliminary trial. Taylor equaled McDuffee's mark of :21 1-5. Then - when he covered the distance in twenty seconds. two of the watches caught the time under that mark and two a fraction over it. while the other watch was just at the even second. It was the only record of the afternoon, although there were numerous trials by both McDuffee and Taylor. After Taylor cut McDuffee's quarter-mile record. the Boston rider started out to win back lost laurels. but the closest he could get to it was :20 1-5. and then Taylor made an unsuccessful attempt to break his own record. Both rulers tried unsuccessfully for the third mile mark made the day before. but neither was able to better it. the pace losing time at the turns. the men losing the pace. and other circumstances of racing interfering. The best time made was :28 for the third by Taylor. and this was not as good as the record of McDuffee the day before of ;27 2-5. A crowd of nearly 500 people turned out to watch the work of the wheelmenMcDuffee's mortorcycle again did beautiful 'work. but Taylor's did a great deal better. Mcriuffee had two large Cylinders attached to the rear of his pacing machine which. his manager averred, contained some mji0erious power which enabled the motorcycle to go at a continuous pace of 1:30 for twenty-five miles. but other cyclists Insisted that the most the cylinders contained was air and that they were placed in position for a wind break. If so. they served this purpose admirably. One of the motorcycles blew up as it was spinnitu; around the track. The rider on the rear seat speedily scrambled off and rolled down the banking. the cloud of steam pouring into his face. The rider on the front seat. however, guided the motor until it was ready 'to stop. The steam seemed to the spectato,rs to be burning his back badly. but it turned out that his thick clothing and the fact the steam had a chance to cool considerably before it struck him permitted him to keep his seat without any great discomfort. The spectators were relieved when they- found be was not injured. The mile record was to have been tried for. but was given up at the last moment and may be tried for today. That is. of course. the coveted record in cycling. Other records are broken every few minutes. but the mile is a distance which is much more difficult. McDuffee has an unaccepted record of 1:21. which he will claim if he is not able to better the time in his present engagement. Both McDuffee and the colored rider are in excellent condition and the trials for the mile record will be most interesting.

THE CEITCAGO PICNIC FOR LONG SHOTS. FAVORITES FIND IT HARD TO FINISH INSIDE THE MONEY. Wiggins at 20 to 1 and Tillie W. and Allanto at 15 to 1 Elaels Score In Succession at LakesideAdmetus Is the Only Successful Choice Turf Correspondent Dan Murray Is Assaulted by "Curley" Brown and Ills Crowd at Newport. Experience does not seem to aid the crowd which daily makes its visit to Lakeside In picking the winners. Yesterday but one of the six favorites won. That came in the last race. In the first three races the successful horses were at extravagant odds. An unwieldy field of twenty went to the post in the opening event., and as the distance was only five furlongs it Seemed a forlorn hope for any horse not off in the first division. Mr. Dwyer. however. distinguished himself by a magnificent start for all except one horse, old Balk line- The other nineteen were on apparently even terms, and accordingly Balk line was left. Wiggins. a 20 to 1 shot, went to the front, with the favorite. Herrnoso, in close attendance. Instead of stopping, Wiggins gained, and turned into the stretch half a dozen lengths to the good. He had only to gallop the rest of the way to win from another 20 to 1 shot. Debride, who came fast at the finish. Diggs was third and Hermoso finished far back. - In the second race King's Highway was made the favorite, but after leading most , of the mile and a sixteenth he was.passed by the 15 to 1 chance. Tillie W. who won easily from Little Singer. to 1; V. Steadman. 13 to 1. also beating the favorite. Red Cross II. was picked to win the 2-yearold scramble. which came next. but Ailanto. who had been backed from 15 to 1 to 10 to 1. came with a terrific rush in the stretch and beat the choice Mission at 20 to 1 finished third. After that the short-priced horses did better. Catastrophe ' the second choice, won the fourth race by a nose from Moroni, Duke of Baden. favorite, coming third. There was another close finish in the fifth race, Mont Eagle. Morris Volmer. and Clara Wooley crossing the line necks apart In the order named. Mont Eagle was the second choice. Felix Bard. the favorite. showed no speed. The closing race was won by the favorite. Admetus. whom the lung route. a mile and three furlongs. suited.

Nov. 9.--ISpecial.1--A cowardly assault was made today at the Newport race track by ex-Starter " Curley" Brown and his two brothers-in-law, named Keating. on Dan T. Murray, the well known turf correspondent. Murray was engaged at work in the reporters room when Brown and his friends walked in. locked the door, and assaulted him in a brutal manner, giving him a severe beating. Murray was conveyed to his hotel in Cincinnati, where he received medical attention, and is now resting comparatively easy, with no serious results anticipated. The quarrel arose over a grudge of long standing. Brown feeling sore about some criticisms Murray made about his work as starter on the Canadian racing circuit. Murray said this evening that he would prosecute his assailants. The assault was condemned on all sides. Brown poses as a gun fighter. Murray's .face was cut in several places, and he also received a deep gash on the side of the head. Brown left the track after the affair, but was la ter taken into custody and put under bonds. The judges have suspended the Keatings. who are assistant starters here, and the case will come up for a hearing in the morning at the Queen City track.

TOMMY RYAN TALKS OF THE FIGHT. Middleweight Pugilist Gives Details of Jeffries-Sharkey Bout. Tommy Ryan. the middleweight pugilist, was in the city yesterday and was kept busy recounting his story of the Jeffries-Sharkey fight. in which he played an important part. " Sharkey." said he. " is entitled to great credit for the showing he made. With the single exception of Jeffries, he can beat any fighter living. The Californian is his superior, and when they meet again, as they undoubtedly will, he will demonstrate the fact in shorter order than be did last week. " Jeffries was greatly handicapped after the fourth round by the injury to his left hand. He is left handed. using that member for the same purpoi4es as the majority of people use their right. His left arm is stronger than his right. and as he defeated Sharkey almost solely with the use of his right he surely can win in quicker time when his more powerful arm is in good condition. Jeffries was more fatigued from the heat of the electric lights than from the punishment of Sharkey. He entered the ring we.ghing 216 pounds and .:eft weighing :Iva' The battle was remarkable for the amount of joshing done by the seconds. all of 'Which was permitted to pass unchecked. 0II,,urke, in his corner. made remarks to Jeffries with the -object of rattling him, a task which he found difficult, while I occasionally offered a few remarks to Slim key. which acted like a red rag on a bu;I. Jeffries kept his temper wea. while Sharkey at times was raging mad. Even when Sharkey was fouling Jeffries coolly asked Slier to make him stop it. " The champion undoubtedly made a misteke In fighting in an upright position in the earli-r part of the contest. I instructed him to assume his usual attitude in the last live rounds and in addition told him to drive his right up to the jaw instead et sending it straglit to the body. He did so and landed some terrific jolts on the sailor's chin. In my opinion Jeffries was in better shape for a long contest than when be met Fitzsimmons. He looked thinner because he was drawn fine round the hips and legs. a condition due to his many long runs. which I think were of great value. He has about reached his growth. and I do not think he will take on enough weigat to handicap him in the future. In two years' time he will be better than he is now. I do not think Corbett is In earnest in making his challenge. " Nothing htts been done about my match with MeCoy. and I understand there is some talk of his match with Maher being postponed." Ryan came to the city to take his wife back to Syracuse. He wi:i shortly rejoin Jeffries in New York and expects to travel with the etwmpion when the pictures of the fight are put on exhibition. JEFFRIES WILL FIGHT CORBETT. - Brady- Gives the Ex-Fighter the First Chance at the Champion. New York. Nov. 9.--(Specia1.1--James J. Corbett will be the next opponent of Champion James J. Jeffries. -William A. Brady. the latter's manager. said tonight that It had been decided to give Corbett the first chance. He was the first challenger. and has my promise of first chance.

No one would cover the bet. He stilt has the money to bet- - Tonight. when told that Jeffries had decided to take him on first, he said: " Good I'll be ready whenever he is. 1 am willing to fight within a reasonable time. I don't propose to worry him a bit. as he is entitl.d to a rest and all the profits his title may bring him. " When he is ready I am. 'expect the fight will take place within six months.' Martin Julian. manager for, Robert Fitzsim- mons, tonight posted $2.500 and issued a challenge to James J. Jeffri.s in behalf of the ex-champion. At the conclusion of a long statement re-counting the records of Fitzsimmons and Jeffries and claiming that Jeffries has repeatedlY promised to give Fitz another fight. Julian says: " I shall leave my money up for two weeks. and if by the end of that time it htus not been cover ell by Jeffries and another match made I am satisfied to leave it to tht public to decide who is afraid and whether the present champion is a weakling who fears to defend his luckily acquired title or will come out man fashion and agree to fight the greatest tighter that ever lived. for the heavyweight CliaMpt011- ship." When W. A. Brady. Jeffries' manager. was shown Jullan's statement and challenge on behalf of Fitzsimmons. he said: " O. "let Fitzsimmons and Sharkey flight. and then I'll match Jeff against the winner.' - M'GOVERN BOUT SET FOR NOV. I.S. 100,' will Meet Haley and Smith at Tatter.. sall--Praises Slier. Terry McGovern and his manager. Sam Harris. have arranged with the Tattersall's Athletic club to pull off the postponed bouts with Patsey Ha'.ey and " Turkey Point " Bill Smith on Saturday evening. Nov. 18. McGovern has a number of profitable engagements in the East covering most of the dates between now and the 18th. but has consented to cancel one of them in order to show here. George Siler. who will reach Chicago soon. will referee the 'bouts. In writing of this feature of the battles McGovern said: " Slier goes for my money every time. He's level headed in the ring and not swayed by the clamor of the excited spectators. His decision in the Sharkey-Jeffries tight was such as only a fearless. unbiased referee could give. If he had been weak-kneed he would have given in to the crowd. He knew he was right and had the nerve to stand by his opinion. That's the kind of a man I want for referee when I fight."

The local man has not been seen In the ring for several months. In Purcell be will meet a fighter of the same aggressive style as his own.

CITY WANTS RIGHT OF APPEAL Judge Brentfulo's Decision in Star Construction Company's Suit Nay Keep Case Out of Supreme Court. Preparatory to the final decision of Judge Brentano on the merits of the suit for $300,000 damages for extras brought against the city by the Star Construction company, contractors for the building of the Thirty-ninth street land tunnel, Mayor Harrison is seeking to sustain the right of the city to appeal the case to the Supreme Court. The announcement of Judge Brentano on Wednesday that he had Jurisdiction over the case imperils the right of the city to appeal from the final decision should it be adverse. Hearing of the case will be begun by Judge Brentano on Monday at 9:30 a. m., when the evidence prepared by Master in Chancery Barber will be accepted in lieu of new testimony. Mayor Harrison agreed to the collation of evidence by a Master in Chancery as a means of saving time. Acceptance by the court of the evidence thus obtained Was urged by the attorneys for the Star Construction company, but was protested against by the city's attorneys on the ground that, as the suit pr4ctically was an expenditure of money and expenditures cannot be made without the authority of the Council, the Mayor had no right to make the agreement. The court, however, did not hold that the suit was an expenditure of money, and the Mayor's agreement to the collation of evidence by a Master in Chancery was sustained. The protest of the city against payment of the $300,009 damages will be that the Star Construction company contracted to build the tunnel of such material as was necessary to make it substantial. The contract simply stipulated that the timber to be used in the construction of the tunnel should be " wood." Commissioner of Public Works McGann maintains that the failure of the contractors to realize at the time of making the contract that hemlock was not substantial enough " wood " and that oak would have to be used is the loss of the company. Thought Hemlock Could Be Used. The company claims that its bid of $790,000 for the construction of the tunnel was estimated under the belief that hemlock could be used, and that after beginning building it was forced to use oak, which cost $20 a lineal foot more. The company alleges, further, that before the completion of the tunnel it would thus have to expend about $300,000 more than was expected. One of the creditors of the Star company said last evening there was no disposition on their part to force the company into bankruptcy, a condition which might allow the city to place the contract elsewhere. The total indebtedness of the company, as set forth by Hiero B. Herr, President, and Charles Montgomery, secretary. through their attorney, is about $200.000. They claim this indebtedness is due to the expense of substituting oak for hemlock. The indebtedness indetail is as follows: Salaries due to employ aght & Co.. for brick Railroad freight Meacham Wright Miscellaneous Total I sino.noo ismoo londo) 26.000 $200.000 City Will Fight Hard. " The city is preparing to make a hard fight for an appeal should the final decision of Judge Brentano be adverse," said Mayor Harrison. " Of course. if the decision should be in favor of the city we will force the contractors to build the tunnel at the contract price." Commissioner McGann said that in addition to refusing to pay the claim of the contractors the city would continue to retain 15 per cent of the money already due the contractors. which amounted to $45.000, as security for the completion of the tunnel. " Should the company fail to fulfill their contract." said Mr. McGann, " entirely new bids would have to be taken. There has been some talk that the next lowest bidder on the specifications would be awarded the job. It has also been said that Gahan & Byrne. who were $160,000 higher than the Star company, would be given the contract. This is not so. Gahan & Byrne would not have the least chance. In the first place they were not the next lowest bidders." F. S. Winston of Winston & Meagher, counsel for the Star company's creditors. said: The City Hall officials admit there is nothing crooked in the claim of the contractors. The fact is that the contractors bidding for the Job were told to figure on hemlock and not on oak, the idea being to economize for the city.

Only Way of Raising Needed Money to Improve the PropertyEast-Bound Commodity Rates to Be Withdrawn ...Reduced Fares Granted Illinois Central Earnings ReportedQuarantine Regulations in Florida and Alabama Withdrawn for Winter 0 The Chicago and Grand Trunk railway, now - operated as an integral part of the Grand Trunk of Canada, and which affords this company an outlet from Port Huron to Chicago, is to undergo foreclosure proceedings. This action was decided upon at the annual meeting of the Grand Trunk recently held in London. The object is to raise the means necessary to double-track the road from Chicago to Port Huron, to reduce its grades, and increase and improve its equipment. The plan of reorganization. among other things, sets forth that the present capital of the company consists of $5,437,000 in first mortgage 6 per cent bonds, due on Jan. 1, 1 1900; $563,000 in 6 per cent Northwestern Grand Trunk bonds. maturing next year; a like sum of second mortgage 5 per cent bonds, due in 1922; and $6,000,000 of common stock. The further capital requirements are estimated at $4,000,000. r The company claims to be unable, without the cooperation of the bondholders, to make provision for these requirements and for meeting the first mortgage bonds falling clue on Jan. 1, inasmuch as the conditions of the second mortgage prohibit the issue of bonds in excess of the existing first mortgage of $6,000,000. Therefore, the directors say, there appears to be no alternative but to foreclose the first mortgage on Jan. 1, 1900, and reorganize the capital. The reorganization is proposed on the following basis: The creation of $15,000,000 first mortgage fifty-year gold bonds, of which $563,000 w-ould be reserved for exchanging at rvar ten years from now: the Northwestern bonds. $5,437,000, to be issued. bond for bond, to the existing first mortgage bondholders; and the balance of $4.500,000 to be issued to the second mortgage bondholders at the rate of $750 for each $1,000 held. This would leave $4,500,000 to be issued for capital purposes. East-Bound Rates to Be Raised. Rates on commodities between Chicago and Eastern points will be advanced from 10 to 25 per cent on Jan. 1 next. This action was decided upon at a meeting of the general traffic officials of the Central Freight association lines in this city.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE. Hope for Drug Users. 4 Ridgway, Ill., Nov. 4.--tEditor of The Tribune IIn The Tribune " of Oct. 31 is an editorial quoting Dr. Crothers on the excessive use of morphine. He is credited with saying: There is no cure." Because Dr. Crothers cannot cure drug patients it does not follow that no one else can. For six years I lived under the intense gloom of its dark shadows and was brought out of its darkness into the sunlight of health and happiness. It is almost four years since I entered Dr. Leslie E. Keeley's institute at Dwight Ill., for treatment for the use of morphine. I took six weeks' treatment for opium and was cured of all desire for the drug. In four months alter leaving the thstitute I had gained thirty-five pounds in weight. and from that day until the present my health has been simply perfect for one of my age. I have had no desire for the drug in almost four years. I write this article in the hope that drug users may not be discouraged. I am yours truly, an ex-Keeley patient. MRS. Lt. F. ALDRIDGE.

Now the query is how shall we do this after Dec. 31. 1899?

All manner of suggestions will be made. but who shall decide authoritatively bow we shall write it after Jan. 1, 1900? The thought came to me today. and in mentioning the matter to my fellow-clerks in the office where I labor mot one but was taken completely by surprise, as I think possibly " The Tribune " may be.
