A Negro Supposisl to Be Dead is Said to
' Montgomery, Ala., Nov. 20. A special
from Tuskegee, Ala., says:
Last Firdny a negro named Henry
Dawson was hanged here for murder by
the sheriff. He was a large, 200-poundor
and when the trap was sprung, fell so
hard he almost broke the rope. Fifteen
minutes after the fall ho was cut down
ii ml the physicians pronounced him to
be dead from strangulation. His body
was tumid over to his friends for burial,
who put it in a large, black cotlin, start
ed with it in a wagon for the Buchanan
place several miles distant, where they
pronounced the benediction.
A negro named Beiiben Uice now
comes forward with the statement that
Dawson is not dead: that as soon as
the wagon was outside of town the lid
of the collin was pried off and whisky
and other restoratives applied, with the
result that the supposed corpse was re
suscitated, and after an hour or two was
recovered sufficiently to walk. The evi
dence as to the truth of the statement
is that the negroes having the remains
in charge have left the neighborhood,
and no evidence of a new grave can be
found about the Buchanan place.
MONEYED MAN MISSING.

detectives are milking a vigorous effort
to solve the mysterious disappearance
of Michael Kudayeff, a wealthy real es

somewhere in this vicinity. Kudayeff
left New Y'ork Inst May, intending to
visit Colorado for his health. Before
starting he shipped his trunk to his cous

stop and visit him. He did not come,
but about a month ago his cousin re
ceived a letter from him, dated Denver,
which stated that the writer intended
to start oast in a few days.
Since then Mr. Harwitss has had no
word from his relative. It is the form

1890 by playing pretty much the same
kind of a game as she has done all along,
at times brilliant, while at other times
it would have put to shame a lot of
Cornell played a brilliant game through

quarter then play was of the most per

that tb- ttain was so much lighter than
the red and blue there would not have
been 32 points scored againt them. There
were few attempts at tricks by either
side. The interference oi the Cornell
team was nlwuys up to the standard,
which partially accounted for the brill
iant dashes by Beach and McKeever.
It was due almost entirely to the mag
nificent playing of Cornell's back field
that both of their touch downs were
made. By steady plunges in the out line
and an occasional run around the ends.
McKeever, Ritchie and Beach got the
ball over the red and blue goal line

University of Chicago Eleven Bent the
University of Michigan.
Chicago, Nov. 20. In the big building
in which, five months ago, Sir. Bryan
was nominated for the presidency, 13,-
000 cheering footbnll enthusiasts saw
the eleven of the University of Chicago
defeat the strong eleven of the Univer
sity in one of the most desperately con
tested games ever played in Chicago, the
final score being 7 to 0. The result was
surprise to everybody.
Although the Chicago eleven professed
he utmost confidence in winning, yet
there was no such confidence by their
importers, who at best looked for them
to hold their opponents down to a small
score. To Horsdibergcr, Chicago's full
back, belongs the honor of winning the
game, fits punting was one ot tne ton-
ures and his goal from the held, kicked
from the 40-yard line, went cleanly
between the goal posts. He easily out-
lassed Hogg, the Ann Harbor full back.
and time and again his long kicks saved
is team. Chicago could do but little
ith Michigan's line, most of her gains
leing on end plays, in which she dis-
Iaycd splendid interference, or by the
kicking of HorsohlH-rgcr.
Hnmil nnd 1 irtli, the Chicago ends,
both distinguished themselves by sonic
cry pretty tackles. On the Michigan
side, Pingree, in the first half, was the
whole thing," the plucky little follow
seldom failing to make the required dis
tance. He was. however, forced to re-
ire in the second half, his pluce being
taken by Herbert, who was equally of-
ctive. Michigan made frequent use of
the famous Princeton tackle and guard
ack plays, which were very effective.
cry few tricks, however, were resorted
to by either side, both relying on straight,
hard football. One thing at least was
settled by the game, and that is that in
door football is a success. The weather
outside was wet and windy, but the shel
tering walls of the big Coliseum protect
ed the plnyors and the crowd, nnd the
game was played on a -field that was
ideal in its fooling. The noise was sim
ply terrific. Every mother's son and
daughter seemed to lie possessed of a
tin horn and a determination to blow its
mouthpiece through the roofs. College
ells and songs of all kinds were start-
d up with or without provocation nnd
at times the piny had to be stopped on
nccount ot the lmihility of the players to
ear tne signals.

Two thousand people witnessed the de

bands of the San Antonio eleven, at
Beach park, this evening by a score of
to 0. 'Ihe weather was fine and the
gridiron elastic. Both sides played a
luggisn game, devoid of brilliant ploys
or special features. The Galveston
team's ignorance of the rules lost them
the game on the quarter back kick in
the brst half, and the game see-sawed
from this to the finish without incident
of note. It happened in this way:
Quarter back Van Howard of San An
tonio took Left End Elskaridge's place
in left end, (smitn taking Howards
place, and Elskaridge dropped behind
Smith. Smith kicks on a fluke, and Els
karidge runs forword. grabs the ball

Dallas. Tex.. Nt 9?ra....:..i
Hon. E. II. R. Green, chairman of the
republican state .executive committee
arrived home tonight from Canton, Q.'
where he had called upon President-elect
McKinley. Mr. Green seemed well
pleased with the result of bis visit to
Canton. Among other things he said:
"The campaign is a thing of the past
und there is no barm in discussing it."
"Did you really believe there was a
possibility of the, republicans carrying

speaehes in that state. They were to
furnish the oratory and help win the
Hoosier state for Bryan. I visited Chi
cago before the Fort Worth convention.
Hon. Mark Ilanna urged me to accept
the state chairmanship. I refused, say
ing that I was not a politician. Mr.
Ilanna insisted and finally toll me that
if I would accept the position the nn-
linitnl '.nt.,,,,!.., ,.-..1,1 S.. - t
to conduct a vigorous campaign. We
talked the mutter over nnd I reconsid
ered on the promise that an experienced
politician from the north would be sent
along. I wns inexperienced in politic;
nnd I insisted on a man that 1 could
trust. Gen. J. N. Huston was agreed
upon hv Mr. lliiiinii nnd n i?iiitlimnn
high iii the councils of the republican
party whoso mime 1 shall not make pub-
of this gentleman, who is his personal
and political friend. ThiagH looked
shaky in Indiana and we decided that a
red hot and aggressive campaign in Texas
would force Messrs. Baily, Hogg & Co.
to remain nt homo, and also force the na
tional democratic committee to send a big
campaign fund to the state. The plan
was successful. We spent $30,000 in
Texas, and made it so interesting for
tho silver democrats that they kept ont
of Indiana. The fact is, we assisted the
Texas democrats to 'pull the log' of
Chairman J. K. Jones."
"Did Jones' committee send a cam
paign fund into Texas?"
"Mark Ilanna told me that ho under
stood $100,000 was sot aside for Texas
in order to keen tho state from f.-illinc
into the hands of tho republicans. Oui
crent fight was made in Texas so o
for the purpose of compelling democra
to keen their heavy guns at home and
to compel Senator Jones and his com
mittee to divide up their campaign funds
instead of concentrating the cash iu
the doubtful state of Indiana. We were
successful. Huston came to .Texas at
my request. He was recommended by
two of the greatest republican leaders
of tho country, nnd our sole object was
known only to Ilanna, Huston and'mr
self." "What about the Grant-Huston letter,
"When I nccepted the state chairman
ship nt Fort Worth, I stated that I wai
a worker, not a talker. I make the sanif
reply to the question you have propound
ed. 'I am n worker, and not a talker.' "
"About federal patronage; what have
you to say about this very important
"In my opinion two important consular
appointments will fall to Texans. Of
course, I can not anticipate the lucky
Chnirmnn Green declined to discuss
the Grant-Huston episode. However,
he bluntly stated that Gon. Huston was
his friend, nnd that he assumed all re
sponsibility for his presence in
Texas during the campaign.
Speaking of Chas. Hedges ho said:
"Hodges is in Washington city in charge
of tho arrangements for the inaugural
ball. His futher and Senator John Sher
man fire olnso frionHn tf thn nAiMin
elect and no doubt Mr. Hedges will have
smooth sailing after March 4, 1897."
He intimated to the reporter that at
least throe contests had been decided
upon in Texas. He declines to name the
districts, but it is understood that Slny
don, Henry nnd Cooper will be compelled
to fight to retain seats in the next con
