they remained unpunished.

Suggestion That Another Interna

Called Next Year.
The Prospeots of Agreement Are
Now Thought to Be Muoh
England Will Be Foreed to Make some
Conesslon to she White Metal
Before Leong.
WAsBHiOTOx, Nov. 24.-Inquiry to-day
among sesalorsand members has developed
a very general belief that there will be an
efort next year. possibly early in the year,
to bring about another iuternational con
ference for the purpose of securing some
recognition of silver. A prominent mem
ber of the senate oommittee on finance, who
has been knowa for meal years for his
hostility to the contiuaed use of silver in
this country without the co-operation of
the principal European satcons, expressed
the opinion to-day that by proper manage
meat the administration could secure a
conference upon the question which would
accomplish impertant results looking to
the largely increased use of silver in Euro
pean oountries. He was of the opinion
that the action taken by this gevernment in
stoeping the purchase of silver would prove
a strong lever in bringing fo eign coun
triee to see the necessity for p oviding
means for increasing the volum 1 of moosy
in the civilized world, and argued that the
United States should shew a determination
to manlatain the gold standard as long as
other nations persist in this eourse, and to
secure all the gold possible.
He dwelt upon the importance of seeuring
the aseent of England to such a confer
ence, with the understanding that it should
not be a mere pro forms proceeding on her
part, aend expressed the opinion that afairs
are shaping themselves in a way to render
Englamd more favorable than that country
had heretofore been to an international
agreement. He called attention to the rate
of exchange between England and India,
and said India's partiality for silver would
be difeult to overeome. He fu thermore
asserted that England's relation with India
is so intimate that the former country.
in view of the difficulty which England has
already experienced from rival powers in
maintaining her prestige in her Aslatli
peasseslons, cannot afford to go to any
great length in antaronizing the people of
that region upon a point so vital to them as
their inances.
This senator also expressed the opinion
that the present government of England is
liable to be overthrown at the next election,
and said if it should be, and Saishbury and
Bilfowu again come into office,. as in that
event they -would, there would be much
greltes likelihood of securing favorable
action "flom England than under Glad
stone, as Balfour is a pronouneed bimetal
list and Sallsbury is very favorably in
clined in that direction.
Some Details of the Measure Yet Under
WAsHINiox., Nov. 24.-The democratic
members of the ways and means commit
tee are experiencing meeh diiculty in their
endeavors to complete the new tariff bill
and have it ready for submission to their
republican colleagues at the meeting of the
fall committee Monday next. Details of
the Internal revenue schedule and income
tax provisions are yet inceomplete and
somewhat indefinite. Indeed. strong influ
ene has been brought to :bear within the
last forty-eight hours to induce the com
mittee to abandon altogether the snoome
tax provision, but the position of MeMii
lin, Bryan. Whiting and others has been so
resolute in favor of this policy that it ap
pears impossible for the committee to
abandon the income tax fully without
hopelessly dividing the demooratio party. It
seems probable, however, that the income
tax provisioen will not be of the sweeping
bharacter that was at frst contemplated.
The present plans are to impose a tax on
legacies, on ineemes of large corporations;
on incomes of real es ate and other prop
erty in the country owned or controlled by
aliens, as well as to require the stamping of
certain doeuments and a speeial license on
certain classes of business.
The sub-committee on internal revenue
is still at work, and will probably oennlude
iea labors seme time to-morrow night. No
changes of importance are eontemplated in
the internal revenue taxon tebasco or beer,
though there probably will be a slight in
erease of the whisky tax.

meda was considered at the sabiast meet

have resulted Ia the determination not to
enlghtsen the public any further on what it

already been done, but to allow it to walt
upon the regular means of eommunisation.

CeMnmtrns, Mass., Nov. 24.-Any person
ean try to become a member of a 'varsity
athletic assoelation who is a member of
the college or univresity, bat it is quite an
other thing to get a place on the team.
The work done Mt trying for the several
teamse l a big institution like Harvard, for
example, is surprising. 'I hre are the
foot ball eleven, base ball nine, reow, Mote
Haven track athletto team, erisket team,
tennis club, and the four class teaems each
in foot ball, rewla, and base ball. The
candidates for one of these alone, say the
freshman crew, asually number no less
than eighty men. The others are in almost
equal proportion, and the total number of
candidates runs well up into the hundreds
and probably sear a thossand.
The efforts of a candidate for foot ball
honors are not by any means extended
merely to the two or three months preced
Ing the big games. To be one of eleven
representing a university of 3,000 students
is an aehievemsnt werthy of great things.
Once In college and the man who, when in
his preparatory oshool, had his eye on the
'varsity, immediately begins his more di
reat work for the place. Unless he is a
stWr, who has been singled out for special
attention by the collgae athletice men, he is
not dir Oetl asked out to the 'varsity squad,
but Joins the freshmen. Here he works
daily, for a few minutes at first, until he
becomes toughened and in good trim. Then
he i rctless for at lsast one hour and a
half every afternoon. The candidates are
numerous and their mettle is shewn in the
class games. Here the freshmen are sized
up by the upper class men, and a 'vality
man or two drope around to look at them.
During the winter months all of t}e ath
letes not in direct training for soml team
take general exercise. Every afternoon
they may be seen by hundreds in the gym
nnslum. The foot ball men ean easily be
distinguished because they oftei wear their
heavily padded trousers. The exeroise
asually taken is work with the dumb bells
and chest weights, and a ran up North ave.
nune of a mile and a half. The ran is good
exereise, and all return to the gymnasium
in a healthy glow. Then comes the shower
bath and brisk rub down, and the student
is ready for his dinner.
As soon as the snow is off the ground the
foot bail men form what is. known as the
"spring squad." This is desllped more
especially to bring out all new men and
teach them the rudiments of the game. It
is hard work. The men line up and prac
tics breaking through the line, and then
falling on the ball. They use a dummy
swinging man as a tackling meehine, and
rush at him full speed and down him.
As the summer draws near the captain of
the 'varity team makes up a list of all the
more promising candidates, and these men
be manages to have together daring July or
August for two or three weeks' practice at
some cool place on the New England coast.
They sweat and toil in the broiling hot unn
for hours every day. They have little time
for any pleasanter pastimes. In the hope
that they mar wear a 'varesity sweater, the
candidates come back to Cambridge early
in :eptsmbsr, long before college opens.
Now comes the struggle. Every day for
the next three months they must work to
the very utmost of their physical capabllity
and denies themselves most of the pleasures
indulged in by college men. Smoking is
absolutely forbidden; drinking is not al
lowed, unless by express permission of the
captain or the coach. They cannot go to
theatres, as the candidates must be in ted
by 10 e'clook. There Is a surgeon in
attendance every afternoon, who looks after
all bruises, eats, and sprains whieh may be
Strict training begins early in Septembsr.
They are drilled in the elementary prin
ciples of the game. For instance, a line
will be drawn up; then one man will take
the bail and start at the top of his speed to
run down past the line with it, and the man
at the other end will run feorward and
taekle him. It his taekle is not low, hard
and arse, and if he has not downed his
man quickly, they must try it again. The
men practice for houal the simple feat of
"aropping on the ball." The ball bounces
unevenly, and the man falling on it most
do so by throwing himself directly for the
ball at full length, oatch it up in his arms,
eurling himself about the ball so as to se
cure it firmly. This Is hard to do, and
many a man bruises his arms badly.
The work of the candidates toward No.
vember to exactly the same from day to day.
They rise at 7:30 o'elook in the morning,
and, after a good, cold bath, dress quickly.
Then they meet at some fixed point in the
college "yard," At eight o'elosk they ean
be seen walking by twos to breakfast,
Breakfast at the training table is a hearty,
whole.ome meal. They have plenty of well
cooked food, oatmeal, eoge, fruit, and
steaks, bat no sweets of any kind. They
are not allowed coffee or tea; no hot bread
or hot eakes. After brerrkfast the men
scatter to their various reeitations and leo
ture, whieb keepl thsem busy until one
o'clock, when thesy lnnch together at the
trainlnl table. This meal is much the
same as breakfast, with a good deal of fruit.
They have two houears to themselves after
Ianch, and then begins the hard work.
For an hour and a half they strouggle.
with an intermission of ten minutes. The
game is stopped every few minutes bhy a
coaoher to haul some poor fellow over the
coals. But all goes on in a spirit of ear
nestness until it is too dark to I lay any
any nmore. Then the substitates who have
not ilared indulge in a run of two miles or
no. and the regular me. go to the Carey
building for their baths. The men dine at
six o'oloek, and consumne la ne quantities
of rase meat in order to keep their weight
up. T'hey ai too tired to do much later in
