that the lack of an athletic field on the

porta, and they are now determined t
hare a new Cornhueker fteM by next fall.
The sentiment of the men who are now
working; to grt a new field was voiced by
C. J. Bill of Lincoln, at the Cornhuaker
banquet last week. He announced that
the legator would be asked for an ap
propriation for purchasing a field at Its
session this winter. He expressed hla
beHeve In th wllltne-ness of the aew bffla
lature to treat the Nebraska athletes In
the right manner. IX the legislature doea
not give the university a field, he declared
he was wilting to fornlsh part of the money
for buying a field and ta as that the rest
was raised. He declared Nebraska would
have a field by next fall.
Kite tot New Grovnds.
The site of tho new grounds will be
airectly north of the old Nebraska field,
between Tenth and Eleventh streets. Part
of the grounds at this place was bought
last summer. The regents pold for a few
it the lots and tfhe athletic board for the
others. The lots now owned by the uni
versity on the proposed site for the field
re Not. T, 8, 9, 10 and a part of 13, In
It Is figured that the total cost of buying
the land and equipping a field will be 140,000
About f30,0(XJ of this amount will be needed
for getting the rest of the land, and J20.000
will be wanted for fixing up the field.
This $40,000 will enable the athletic board
to purchase enough land now and fit It
up properly to do tho university for a
year or two. ' Iter on the play grounds
will need to be enlarged to give more capac
ity for bleachers and a cinder track, and
then probably $10,000 additional would be
required to fit the grounds up properly.
A special committee of the university
and Lincoln business men is now at work
devising plans to secure the field by as
early as next spring so that base ball and
track athletics may be kept on the campus.
Some of the workers are so sanguine as to
believe that they will have no trouble in
getting things all arranged by March 1.
They all declare that a field well equipped
for foot ball will certainly be ready by
next fall In time to accommodate the home
fames on the Cornhusker schedule.
New Baaket Ball players.
Since the close of the foot .ball season the
basket ball squad has been augmented by
the addition of several foot ball warriors
and now numbers fifty candidates. Dr.
Clapp says this Is the largest squad that
his ever been out for practice this early
in thr season. He -believes the prospects
ar excellent for a strong team. The sea
son was opened last evening at the Armory,
when the Cornhuskers met Jhe Cotner col
legians In an 'easy game.
At the present time the men who are
showing up to the best advantage in
practice are Bell, Walsh. Hugo Blrkner,
Richer, Woods, Stevenson, Petrashek,
Schmit and Perry. Bell and Walsh are
veterans of last year's team and win
play in all but the inter-colleglate games.
Hugo Blrkner was a half-back on the
varsity and since the close of the gridiron
season hag been practicing at guard with
tha basket bail Ave. He has shown won
derful guarding ability and will be a strong
candldat for one of the places on the
quintet. Petrashek and Rlchey are the two
trongest candidates for center and that
place wiU fall to one of them. Schmit may
ecure one of tho guard positions. He is
fast and aggressive and can play a rapid
and hard game. For the two forward
tnera are several excellent possibilities

It was the turn of the Harv-rd team to
conquer this year a turn relished all the

BUSINESS METHODS JN CITIES
Attractive Shawlus- t the Commissi
-System "t Government la
At recent meeflng of th Carolina
Municipal association Mr. Rica, th mayor
of Houston, Tex., gay an account of th
government of hi city which wa full of
Interest as a lesson in what may b ac
complished In th way of business munie
Ipal administration. Houston had for
year been suffering under the evil of
political government. It was Inefficient
and extravagant, and money which was
raised by taxation was squandered. Pub
lic utilities wer unregulated and people
bad to pay too much for what they got.
Wearying of these things, leading citizen
went ito the legislature for a city charter
on a new plan. Under this plan authority
and responsibility were centered in a
mayor chosen by the people, voting; under
the restrictions of the law of Texas. These
laws limit the suffrage to those who have
paid the poll tax In person. The main
features of th Houston plan are the elec
tion by tha people of a mayor who 1 the
head of the municipality and of a small
council. Instead of having a council com
posed of men elected by separate wards,
the council Is composed of four men elected
from the city at large. A co-ordinate
power is vested in the mayor and council
to dismiss any city official, except the
comptroller, without cause at any time.
Essential provision were adopted safer
guarding th granting of municipal fran
chises. A large portion of the executive
or administrative power Is subdivided into
different department. Each department
Is under the charge of a committee and
the mayor, and all the councllmen af
members of each committee.
One oflhe striking results of fhe sys
tem, as described by Mayor Rice, ha been
the elimination of red tape and palaver.
Any citizen who want a street paved,
taxes adjusted, assessment changed, a
nuisance abated, has only to call t the
mayor' office, state his case and have the
matter decided on the spot. Not long ago
a nonresident landowner came to Houston
and discovered that his property was a
eased higher than other adjacnt prop
arty. He asked the ad Wee of a lawyer
and was told to call at the mayor's office
and state the case to him. He did so.
The mayor called in the tax collector, and
in. less tha an hour the matter had been
adjusted. The astonished landowner de
clared thai in the city where he lived It
would have taken week to reach a con
elusion. This new charter in Houston becam
operative n 1$05. When the pew govern

Although It la known that the league has
been considering the subject in executive

notice when President Pulllam today
formally presented it and a statement was
drawn tor the public as follows:
When the National league had apparently
transacted all rf Its business nt Its meet

the league had received an official call
from the members of the American league,
Mr. Pulllam called attention to a mailer
which tlie undersigned consider not only

but to organized base ball as well. He stated
that Messrs. Kltm and Joitnstone, the
umpires who had officiated at the game
played between the New Ycrk and the
Chlrnge clubs, at the polo grounds October
8. liXX, liad submitted to him certain signed
statements that an effort bad been made
to bribe them with respect to their dutls,
pertaining to that contest. In one of these
statements the name of the person who
approached the umpires was given, as well
as the name of Dersons whom lie claimed
In the other statement the names of
the persons , who approached the umpire
were not given, this umpire stating thai

at which all the club were represented.
John T. Brush, president of the New Tork
club, has not been present at previous ses
sions, because, be said, be had been 111, and
would not have attended today' meeting
except for the extreme importance ot the
case under discussion.
President Pulllam said the regular busi
ness of the meeting 'had been concluded
early yesterday and that since that time
the various representatives had been trying
to get at the bottom of the attempted
It was mod clear that there were few
close decision In the memorable contest ot
October t, which gave Chicago the pennant,
at least none that affected tbe result. The
game was ordered played after the regular
.season closed because ot the .tie for first
place between New Tork and Chicago, when
the last of the regularly scheduled games
had been played. Contributing to tbe ex
citement of th situation with the cham
pionship banging on a single game, was the
disputed tie game of September 3, which
New York lost because Merkle failed to
tcurtj second base. The echoes of that
memorable contest and the excitement in
the base baU world which followed It had
died away to a great extent, only to be
reawakened by the sensation of today.
With the conclusion of the National
league meeting it was expected that the
rumors of many deals for player between
the club would come to a head. The only
report which received confirmation, how
ever, wa tbe engagement .of Clark .Griffith
manager of tbe Cincinnati club. The
former manager f the New S"ork Ameri
cans, It ia underatood, goes to Cincinnati on
a one-year contract which he ha tbe op
tion ot renewing. The new manager said
tonight that he would consider no change
in tbe makeup ot the "Reds" until he bad
looked over the field.
