FORMER RUSSIAN CAPITAL
LOOKS LIKE BATTLEFIELD.
Moscow, Wednesday; Dec. 27. The
backbone of the insurrection is broken
and the uprising here is rapidly going
to pieces. The revolutionists are able
to keep up only a guerilla warfare,
but the ease with which they can
move from one place to another In
small detachments renders the task
of suppressing them slow and tedious.
The city or Moscow bears the plctur
esque appearance of a battlefield.

Odessa, Dec. 28. Martial law has
been proclaimed in this city. Tne
strike, however, is nearly over.
COLLEGE" MEN TALK
ON FOOTBALL GAME.
New York, Dec. 28. Representa
tives of a large number of eastern
college will hold a conference jit the
Murray Mil Hotel this afternoon, to
consider the foot ball question, and
dtiscuss suggestions for reforming
the game, so as to remove some of
T,he brutal features which have made
the game objectionable to a large
number of people. Yale will not be
represented in the conference, having
taken a decided stand against- any
attempt to abolish i or even change
the present style of playing. It is
considered probable that a special
committee will be appointed to work
out new rules for governing inter
collegiate foot ball games In the fu
ture. It Is not believed that the game
of foot ball will be abolished, but
that the rules will be so modified that
the danger to the individual players
will be greatly reduced.

to go to Wyandotte, Kan., last even

eral persons who were heard talking
about him among themselves.
"Did they say anything to you?" In
'lulred Chief McMilliu.
"No," Htygood replied, '"but they
were whispering among themselves,
saying: 'That's him; he is the fellow
with the money.' "
Haygood said that he believed they
had formed the opinion tuat he had
plenty of money, and had lt; in for
