"Tfce result was that In 1!87 there was a call to organise a central government that would give all sections of the coun try a voice In Its affairs. Accordingly BUTLER OF CORNELL SENT PROM QUARTER TO LEFT HALF (Special to Hm Enslnf World. ) ITHACA. N. T.. Nov. 23. If hard work can make a team win, the Coi neM eleven ought to come out on top la tta final struggle with Pennsylvania. The Bed and White varsity scrimmaged aa boar and a half yesterday and kept the ball all the time, trying Its offense afalnst the scrubs. Nearly two full teams of second string men were use I up while the varsity battered away at tae aerub line. No regular score waa kept of course. Tha vnrelty did good work, consider ing the radical changes that were mado In the lineup, Butler, who has played quarterback all season, was shifted to left halfback, and O'Connor, the regu lar left half, was given the quarter back position. Y'llether this change will be permanent or not Is u question of doubt, but It Is pretty late In the saaaon 'or the coaches to make much serious ohauttca unless they are to stand. rflll was In at fullback and Hawkins waa used at right halfback, It.

LOCAL BOXING RESULTS. Mr. Sullivan paid high tribute to the executive qualities of the new president of the A. A. iS Oustavus T. Klrby, de claring that he has Just the qualities needed to pish the work of tho I'nlon forward. He said that probably one of the first things the new head of the Union would attempt would he to bring the National Playground Association of America Into closer relationship with the A. A. V. Mr. K1rty li treasurer of this latter organisation, and according to Mr. Bulllvan should be able to bring about this union. Reinstated a Quiet Inquiry Was Made Into His Record. Some of the sensational features that characterized the management of Sing t'lng Prison for many years will be revealed to-day. An Investigation more thorough and searching than any that has ever been undertaken v.l'.l bring these detafla to light. The Investi gation, which will be public, will be conducted before Warden Kennedy. Col. Scott, the Superintendent of State Pris ons; Conservation Commissioner Van Kennon. Judge MacMahon and other oftVlnla of tho State Quvernment will probably be called as witnesses and will make known for the first tlmo the re sult of their probing of the prison af fairs of tho State. Testimony will be Introduced to prove that John p. Powers should not bo rein stated as Superintendent of Industries of the prison, as ordered by the courts. Powers, n to has exercised unusual power at Sln Sing, was removed last spring following the Investigation con ducted by Mr. Van Kennen, who was appointed special commissioner for the lurpose. POWERS WA8 APPOINTED BY COLLINS. The dlSOOVerlei m-ade by Mr. Van Kennen have never been made public. Iowers sued for reinstatement on t" ground that he was a veteran fireman and was exempt from removal for po litical causes. No specific charges were preferred against him, but after he had Invoked the courts to compel hla rein statement, In which he succeeded. Col. Scott began a systematic Inquiry Into the record of Tower In anticipation of the Inquiry to-day. Powers was appointed In the prison service from Troy by Cornelius V. Col- Una, the Republican boas of Rensselaer . I nun. u ...I fhn Sum.' liitotut. nl Af ! I Prisons. He served a short time at Uannemora and was then transferred to Sing fling. At first he was put In charge of the spinning Industry, but a little while later was made (leneral Superintendent of Industries and hli salary raised from $I.S00 to 1:1,000, which its M mora than the silary of the I Warden. I Kor several years Powers appeared to have more authority In the affairs of the Institution than any other official. In addition to his public duties Powers 1 was treasurer of the State l-'lrcmen'g Association at H.SOO a year and treas urer of the Knights of Columbus, lie bought supplies for the prison aggre gating :.", In a Single year, but It was not until a year 0 that he ever gave a bond, when he furnished S-VflOO. . Powers appeared to prosper rapidly after he went to Sing Slag. He lived In mi lis, mo house In Clinton avenue. He was a director In the Osslnlng National Hank, In which the State money and that helonglng to prisoners was kept. Powers's bank accounts will probably figure In the Investigation to-day. I'ower.i was regarded as dealing heavily In mort gages on property around Sing S:ng. TRANSFER OF THE CONVICT FUND. According to the official records on fll In the Staite Comptroller's office, "the First National Hank of Osslnlng on April 1. 119. transferred to the ossln lng National Bank capital fund SIOT,- (172.29, convicts' fund $lfi,.6H, by order of Comptroller Charles II. Oaus." Urns died Ont. 31. 190t, and QoV, HlHtiaj. Nov. 12, 11109 named Clark Williams as his eueoe-saor. l,vor since then the Osslnlng National has had tv Industrial fund, controlled by Director Powers, on de posit. The mpltal fund of the Osslnlng Na tional Hank Is $100,000; the surplus Is recorded as I3r.,0co. The bond which PowVws's bank has on tile In Albany Is for tlOO.OOO only. An examination of tho official records of ttv Comptroller's of fice show that at no time was the capi tal fund greater than the lowest deposit to the credit of the State. Oct. 10. 110. the State Prison l.y-pa.rt-ment had on deposit In Powetrs's bonk: Prison capital fund. 1 1.15.. 137 US; convicts' deposit and miscellaneous earnings fund, IZ3.603.T1. On that day the capital fund of the Osslnlng National was no: more than tWO BOA, As superintendent of Industries, Pow ers was brought Into personal oontACl with the prisoners and with their friends on the outside.
