Washington, Dec. 7. ScnatbrGh'amV
lor of New Hnmpshlro today Introduc
ed a bill providing for systematic ath
letic exercises at West Point Mllltnry
Academy nnd Annapolis Naval Aca
demy. Tho title of tho bill sets forth
Its object to bo "to Incrcnso tho efll
deny of tho West Point Military Aca
oemy nnd Annapolis Naval Academy,
and to qualify nud stimulate tho
American youth for actual military scr
vice by sultablo physical training In
stead of execsstvo mental education."
It provides that tho conrso of In
struction shall dispense with the study
of higher mathematics and foreign lan
guage and substitute a courso in ath
letics, to cmbraco especially golf, bi
cycling, football and baseball. The bill
also provides for annual athletic con
tests between the students of the West
Point Military Acadeniy at Boston,
Now York, Philadelphia, Pittsburg,
Cincinnati, Chicago; St. Louis, Rich
mond, Atlanta, New Orleans, Omaha
nn San Francisco, at which sultablo
prizes shall ho awarded. An appro
priation sufficient to pay tho prizes Is
provided for, but tho railroads are re
quired to carry frco tho cadets to the
places of contests, and also tho repre
sentatives of such reputable newspa
pers as tho Secretaries of War and
Navy may designate.
During tho discussion of Ue bill in
tho Scnato Hnlo said ho took It to bo a
bill to encourago football and other
slllmlar games, and he could hardly
Btand ns sponsor for such n proposi
tion. In n facetious speech Chandler re
plllcd that ho thought athletic con
tests among the collego men ought to
bo encouraged. "Tho proposition I
present Is," ho said, "that tho athletic
contests shnll bo regulated by law, and
that International and Intercollegiate
contests shnll occur at salient points.
Frco trains shn.. bo run by tho rail
roads to theso nffalrs In order to in
crease tho interest and attendance, nnd
I proposo that this shnll bo done with
out violating tho interstate commerce

Washington, Dec. 20. Tho Sennti
Commlttco on Foreign Itelatlons todny
authorized a favorablo report upon tho
two trentlcs negotiated with Great
Britain nnd Germany for tho dissolu
tion of tho tripartite agreement for tho
control of the Sanioan Islands. Sena
tor Bacon, one of the now Democratic
members of tho committee, was the
only opponent of tho treaty, nnd ho did
not seek to delay tho reporting of it to
tho Senate. His opposition was direct
ed toward the acquisition by this coun
try of the Island of Tutulln and was
liascd upon tho contention that the
consent of the Islanders should bo first
secured. Ho was met on this propo
sition with tho stntcment thnt tho na
tives wcro nothing more than wander
ing tribes, and with the argument that
tho .United States could not afford to
forego the opportunity to securo com
plete control of Pago Pago hnrbor,
which this treaty gave.
