Augustana Synod' Declines to
Hear Petition From ColleQe
Students and Alumni
Motion to Leave Matter In Hands of
Individual Institutions Also
Meets With Defeat
The Augustana synod has declined to
let down the bars for Intercollegiate
athletics in any manner. At the meet
ing in Chicago this week the petition
of Augustana and other colleges con
trolled by the synod was presented,
asking for the reconsideration of. the
resolution forbidding Intercollegiate
athletic contests. This petition, which
was signed by hundreds of students
and alumni of the different institu
tions, was refused consideration by
the members of the synod.
I Defeated Ttrirr.
Not only did the synod decline to
hear the petition, but it voted down a
motion that the authorities of the dif
ferent colleges be authorized to dis
pose of the athletic question in such
manner as they deem fit in the indi
The rule was adopted last year, and
was particularly aimed at collegiate
football games. Its effect however, was
to put an end to all intercollegiate con
tests, and baseball, basketball, and
track athletics all fall under the ban.
Rule Very I'npApular.
The prohibition of athletics has prov
ed very unpopular in the various in
stitutions, and there is a wide differ
ence of opinion as to its wisdom. That
a reform was needed in athletics at
the time the resolution was adopted, it
is generally admitted, but those who
disapprove of the action of the synod'
maintain that it was entirely too rad
The movement for its reconsidera
tion was started at a meeting of Au
gustana students, following a demon
stration expressing the disapproval of
the measure. This demonstration, it
will be remembered, included indigni
ties against seyeral members of the
board of directors of the institution,
but the student body sent representa
tives to Omaha to apologize for these
acts. The other schools readily co
operated with Augustana in the effort
to have the resolution rescinded.

The battle line of republican poli

a rival of the present incumbent of

TENDERS MONEY FOR
A SALOON LICENSE
City Clerk, Howtver, Refuses to Ac
cept Fee from George Baumann
for Tabooed Place.
A move was made this morning to
draw Mayor Schaffer out in the mat
ter of granting a saloon license to a
place which has been closed under his
orders and refusal to again license a
saloon at this location. George Bau
mann of Davenport formally -applied
for a license for the Club saloon on
Eighteenth street. Mr. Baumann ten
dered the city clerk the $250 fee, and
when the clerk declined to accept the
money, it was taken to the city treas
urer. W. H. Gest Jr. He also declined
to accept it, and it was deposited in
he Rock Island National bank, sub
ject to the city's order, on the signing
of the receipts deposited there.
The location and its former reputa
tion, rather than Mr. Baumann. is the
reason the mayor has declined to is
sue the license, and the clerk acted
on this Information.

liam J. Bryan, "which the tourists will
reach on Saturday, a second train of
Studebaker cars, carrying Governor
Hoch of Kansas and Governor Folk of
Missouri, will meet the Illinois trav
elers, and continue to Denver as one
train. John Atwood of Leavenworth,
who is expected to make the nomina
ting speech for William J. Bryan, will
be one of the Kansas party.
The automobile train carrying the Il
linois . delegation was chartered by
Roger C. Sullivan, chairman of the Illi
nois democracy, and the party will in
clude a number of prominent demo
cratic statesmen. '
It is expected that the Chicago train
will reach Clinton, Iowa, on the first
day, Marshalltown Wednesday, and
Omaha, Neb., Thursday night, remain
ing at that point nearly an entire day,
as prominent Omaha democrats have
arranged a gigantic reception in honor
of the delegates.
Following another reception at Lin
coln, the tourists will continue through
Grand Island-, Kearney, and North
Platte, Neb., crossing the Colorado line
near Julesburg. At that point a num
ber of distinguished democrats in au
tomobiles will, meet the tourists and
escort them into Denver. At the con
vention city special entertainment is
being arranged in honor of the Illinois-Kansas-Missouri
travelers, who will -establish
a precedent in convention trav
el, this being the first time in the his
tory of 'transportation that a train of
motor cars competes with trunk line
railroads over long distance routes.
The route to be followed by the tour
ing delegations, is based on the one
generally used for cross-continent auto
mobile tours, but several slight devia
tions will be made for the purpose of
touching cities and towns in which
prominent democratic organizations
are anxious to entertain the delegates.
It is expected that Denver will be
reached some time daring- the day of
the glorious Fourth. The train will go
leisurely, and average about 125 miles
