Chicago, Nov. 25.The close of
Minnesota's football season Saturday
brought defeat to the Gophers at the
hands of Stagg's Maroons by a score
of 7 to 0. It was a hard fought game
throughout and the best team won.
When the first half ended, the Go
pher supporters were firm in a belief
that Minnesota would triumph in the
second half as they had outplayed
their rivals in the first half. Chicago
braced amazingly in the second half
though and managed to make a
touchdown which spelled victory for
the Stagg forces.
The touchdown came as a direct
result of a long and accurately timed
and well executed forward pass Two
Minnesotans were on the spot and
might have interfered at least for a
penalty, but failed to make the most
of their opportunity. The big gain
seemed to put the Minnesotans in the
air for a short time and was follow
ed by a ten-yard end run by the Ma
roons. This appeared to put the
Minnesota eleven even higher and
the Maroons smashed and crashed
.down the short remaining yards for
a touchdown, finally registering
.through an end run when the Min
nesota secondary defense was play
ing for a possible forward pass. It
was good football by the Maroons
-and the touchdown came without
iftaw or fluke of any description.
Gophers Seemed Off Form.
Minnesota lacked a lot of playing
up to the finished form the home
rooters had expected. Many things
perhaps contributed to this, but the
Gophers were clearly off form both
in their offensive and defensive
work. They did not approximate the
finish or the driving power they ex
hibited in the Wisconsin game. The
team played to the full limit of its
speed and power but the offensive
work appeared to lack that vital
spark necessary to make it go.
The team lacked snap and the
thrust and "punch its offense had
shown in the previous games of the
Most of the rooters incline to a be
lief that this lack of dash and vigor
is due to the short period elapsing
since the Wisconsin game.
The team did not seemingly have
time to recover from the Wisconsin
game and Chicago appeared to be
trained to the minute. The Gophers,
during the season had found It nee-

Harvard Smashed Yale.
New Haven, Conn., Nov. 25.
Harvard smashed Yale Saturday. It
was a rout, a disaster, a cataclysm.
It takes memory of the oldest inhab

score ran into double figures while
keeping the Blue blanketed That
was done today And if 20 for Har

Cambridge, it is equally certain that
it means more to New Haven.
Already it is known that the en

thereof is to be radically revised
down here where Old Man Football
himself was popularly supposed to
mane his habitat And when the re
vision is complete it will be found
that Yale has taken a leaf from Har

her organization on the model of her
once despised rival. A Permanent
coach will be installed and the time

coaching, changing each year, is to

MOON FILES APPEAL
C. O. Moon this morning filed no

from the decision of the board of
canvassers and expects the court to
act soon. Mr. Moon was defeated for

FREIGHT TRAIN IS WRECKED.
Several cars of a Great Northern
freight train went off the track at
Solway about 8 a. m., and traffic
on the line was closed until nearly
2 p. m. As far as could be learned
no one was injured, but merchandise
was scattered over the right of way
for some distance. The east bound
passenger did not reach Bemidji un
til after 2 p. m.
SNOW PLEASES HUNTERS.
The foot of snow which fell last
night pleased many hunters who
have not yet bagged their limit- ot-
game and it is predicted that majryJ
deer will be shipped Into- -fiemidji
this week. The snow is heavy
enough to make tracking easy but
not enough to make walking diffi
cult The absence of snow to date
has protected the deer better than
any game laws. Hunters predict
that they will be more plentiful than
ever next year.
COLLINS' BODY HERE.
The body of Ed Collins, of Island
Lake, will arrive in Bemidji at 6 p.
ir this evening having been shipped
from the federal prison at Fort
Leavenworth via Minneapolis. The

WARM SESSION IS PROMISED
The contest for the speakership, of
the next Minnesota legislature is be
coming interesting. Henry Rines of
Mora looms up.as |h|^leaiiu candi

thirty-two house members, but he
will have strenuous opposition from
former Speaker H. H. Dunn of Al

and P. H. McGarry of Walker.
The next house will be made up of
98 Republicans, 20 Democrats and
one Socialist, one Prohibitionist and
one Independent. Of this number,
the Progressive Republicans, respon
sible for Rines' candidacy, claim to
have fifty members signed up and
they figure on eight others as certain
to vote for him. As sixty-one votes
constitutes a majority, they feel cer

The two Dunns are both in favor
of the election going to the floor of
the house. This would undoubtedly
please the Democrats. It is now pre

will undoubtedly be disappointed. It

will be a contender for the floor lead

the tonnage tax bill that Governor
Johnson vetoed four years ago, will
be back in the house, and it is said
he will spring another similar meas

be one of the most important meas

passage are said to be good, as many

aspirations and will desire to "get in

MACKENZIE IS BUSY

a Publicity Bureau.
HOME LANDS ARE THE BEST
W. Mackenzie was recently in
Des Moines, Iowa, in the interest of
the Northern Minnesota Develop
ment association,-^*,whieh he is sec
retary, and the Des Moines Register
and Leader printed the following in
"Claiming that states "of the Mis
sissippi valley are losing financial
benefits and good citizens by the flow
of settlers to the northwest and
Canada, W. R. Mackenzie of Minne
apolis, immigration commissioner of
the Northern Minnesota Development
association, proposes the establish
ment of a publicity bureau to tell of
the resources of these state.
"While in Des Moines Mr. Mac
kenzie told of the work of the organ
ization with which he is connected,
and suggested that the work might
be enlarged to include all of Minne
sota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa,
which he believes have many inter
ests in common.
"His bureau was organized three
years ago and is supported by the
business men of thirty-three coun
ties. The cost of maintenance of the
bureau for the three years has been
$5,000 a year, but definite results
have been accomplished. Principal
among them is the securing of a one
mill tax for road use, which will give
$3,000,000 available next year.
'We have nothing to sell,'_ said
Mr. Mackenzie, 'but we are trying to
wake up the people of Minnesota to
the fact that right in their own
state are better resources than are
to be found in Canada. We have ac
complished a great deal, and our
work is gradually being extended.
'Iowa needs the same thing. This
state has wonderful opportunities for
any one who will take them. But
the trouble is no one knows about
them. Nothing is ever said about
them. People right in the state do
not know what Iowa offers, and
when it comes to talking of outside
people coming in Iowa might as
well be surrounded by a stone wall.
