Terrt. a ,, K m!»r of Urn New York Stock Exchange. Mr. -I . itt has made a special study af Indian acces- Fories, and his collection i.= r. garded as one of the best in the country. In the Apache and l."te division twenty-five dif ferent styles of weaving are. shown. A coiled Hopl basket ni&de by an Indian widow and another made by a young Indian rirl represent some of the peculiar :iiiri«:T:;itions of the red women. They arc *xß'tly similar in appearance, the only difference l>eing that in the basket woven by the girl the last coil is left open at the top. the idea being that if the coil had been closed the maiden would never marry or be the mother of children. The same thought is conveyed In various other ♦•samples of the Indian weaving craft. On a # piece or buckskin is shown the headdress of the chief of the tribe, embellished with hundreds of wood peckers' scalps, neatly arranged. On the opposite Trail -in this division is shown the dress of the squaw, made also of buckskin and decorated with hundreds of b* ads. sheDs and highly colored but tons. These articles are only worn on occasions of festivity. The Hatsajs division shows the Indian's skin Jr. beadwork. and numerous examples are on view. Here also is seen a bow made of one buffalo rib, paid to b« the strongest of its kind in existence. ■any carriers, medicine bags and the chiefs saddle are profusely decorated with beads. The sacred basket used by the medicine man in time of sick ness and a shield of buffalo skin for protection in warfare are also shown. Some Interesting exhibits are shown in the Sioux division, among which is a shield made of alligator Mate; half an inch in thickness and bullet proof, which was used in Indian warfare, A baby carrier made of buckskin and <Kcorated with beads was made in honor of the treaty between Red Cloud «nd General Smith, consummated in the early 40's. The United Si ales flag is painted in colors on the Fid© at the carrier. A gray wolfs skin, painted on the back, which adorns the wall, is used In •wedding ceremonies ,and in introducing young war riors to the Indian maidens. A ghost shirt of woven cloth, painted brown and preen, shows the t-acred beetle, which was extremely sacred to the Indians, believing thai if one. of their ■Hanheta killed a beetle he was immediately doomed. Here is also shown the Sioux chief in warrior's dress, and apposite is the dress of his wife. One especially strong feature at this division is the biography of Chief V.'ashakie of tho Shoshone ■tribe, members of which never fought against the white man, always acting as scouts. This is de •picted in the Indian sign language, painted on white cloth, and is about 4 by «> feet square. The squaw saddle, made of buckskin and bones and ornamented with beads and fancy stirrups, occu pies the centre of the space. In the Iroquois space is shown the crude uten ans used hi preparing food. The stone crusher for the maize ami various other stone vessels are scat tered around the compartment. The Indians were gamblers, and here is shown the gambling bowl, with six <!!<■••. made of nuts. The dress of the medi <-ine man is shown here. In the hand is a dried turtle filled with bird claws. This is shaken be fore the patient or one believed to be afflicted with ♦■vil spirits. The medicine man always used a mask, representative of some god, with horse hair falling over his shoulders. On the wall are .shown various masks which they used In times of sick ness. .•« The last division of the exhibit contains the col littsn of the,. Mohawk tribe. The lacrosse stick nsed la games differs from the modern one, inas much *is no pocket is used to carry the ball. One might spend an entire afternoon in viewing the Indian relies .In this division. Neatly arranged in a glass case are shown reveral medals, on« h silver medal bearing an Inscription denoting the friendship,-of peace, presented to "VVin-no-skick, : chief of the Wlnnebagos,' by James K. Polk, Presi dent of the United States in ISIS. The witch med icine, which was supposed to have the power to change a man into a beast or an animal, at the wish of the holder is also shown. It resembles a hickory nut with innumerable weird faces carved thereon, and is Inclosed In a bead sack, supposed to be the oldest kind of woven beadwork in the world. The exhibition represents only about one-quarter r.f Mr. Te.fft's collection. Fifty-six transparencies, several of which are worth hundreds of dollars each, are shown in connection with the forestry ex hibit, which is undoubtedly- one of the most edu cational of those offered. It has been arranged by the Camp Fire Club of America, which organization has the support of George Emmett in the arrange ment of this feature. A display of various imple ments and devices used by lumbermen and foresters in their work is also well worthy of study by those interested in the preservation of the forests. Dr. Robert T. Morris has loaned a collection of But* which is regarded as the most complete of Its kind in the world. Dr. Morris may be said to occupy the Fame position with regard to the fam ilies of oaks and hickories that Luther Burbank fills with respect to fruits. The results shown In this collection represent years of study and scien tific research. SCHOOLBOYS SHOOT WELL. Pingnj Team Opens Rifle Tourney at Sportsmen's Show.

Amateur cyclists and motor cyclists are looking forward to the New Year's run of the Associated Cycling Clubs of New York. There is more interest among the riders this year than heretofore sinco this run has the approval and sanction of the Na tional Cycling Association, which has assume! control of road events during 1 the last year. Thii affords protection to every rider and insures uniform fair treatment. The event Is open to all bicyclists, as well as motor cyclists. The Gerbereux trophy, that has been competed for by the cyclists for the last ten years, is almost certain to be won this year, as three of the riders are tied for it— Bedell, Daraman and Kessler. The Oatman motor cyclists' trophy is Btill anybody's prize, therefore the interest of thi3 class will be the more Intense. Barring unusual weather conditions, the number of contestants will be greater t lis year than ever heretofore. HARVARD HOCKEY TEAM AT PRACTICE. The Harvard naefeaa/ tenm nnd tho Hockey Club of New York epent an hour at practice on the ice at the St. Nicholas Rink last night. The men* on both Bides shifted their positions frequently, and no attempt was made to keep score. The Columbia seven will play the Crescent Ath letic Club to-night.

Representatives of city, state and national auto mobile organizations .■.■:•■ present at a public hearing of the Park Board at the Arsenal, yster day. to protest against the recent ordinance which forbids the use of chains on wheels of vehicles en tering the park or driving on park thoroughfares. Nearly every organisation which had a representa tion voiced its sentiment against the action of the Park Board. Previous to the hearing ■ conference was held at the headquarters of • .■■ American Automobile Association. No. *37 Fifth avenue, at which the programme was arranged, as to who was to pre sent the arguments of the automobilists. The fol lowing were selected: Charles Thaddeus Terry, of the American Automobile Association and the Na tional Association of Automobile Manufacturers; W. W. Nlles and A. P.. Bhattuck. of the Automobile Club of America: Russell A. Fields, of the Long Island Automobile Club; Alexander Schwalbacb, of the Good Roads Association; Kelvin Bender, of the New York State Automobile Association, and P. W. Strong. Commissioner Smith presided at the hearing Commissioners Berry, of The Bronx, and Kennedy, of Brooklyn, and the assistant clerk. Colonel Clin ton 11. Smith, were also present. Before Mr. Bender, the llrsi speaker, began his protest, the Commissioner advised him to leave the legal aspect of the matter out of the meeting, as the ordinance which went Into effect on December 16 was framed by the Corporation Counsel. 1: was within his province to have the legality of the question determined. Mr. Bender promised to dis cuss it from other viewpoints. He said that it was absurd to restrict any more than necessary the traffic of the automobiles in the park, which was primarily designed for pleasure purposes. The driveways were limited altogether to pleasure vehi cles and automobiles to-day constituted a large part of such vehicles. Chains be declared were necessary in metropoli tan districts, where the lives of pedestrians were imperilled if a machine were unable to come, to a quick stop. Th« chains prevented skidding, that was otherwise Inevitable in muddy or cold weather. If the park authorities forced them to comply with the regulations they must stand responsible for the consequences, he said. He added that even New Jersey, regarded as tlie mother of automobile persecution, had no measure as drastic as the recent park ordinance. The use of chains on motor vehicles is prohibited on the park ways, but is allowed when the weather conditions make It dangerous both to the occupants of the automobile and those who use the driveways. Kven the steel caulks on the horses' hoofs were more injurious to the roads than the Smooth link chains which were universally used on tires. In conclusion ho questioned the authority of th» board to make such a mandatory regulation. By the city charter they were empowered to regulate traffic, but that did not give them the power to restrict pleasure vehicles, be paid. Mr. Maxim, as a practical motor machine engi neer, gave, his opinion of the Injury that a road suffered by the use of chains on automobile wheels He said that It was the only expedient that to* years of study of the problem brought forth. He told of his investigations made on an endurance run when he examined a macadamized, road after a hundred machines had passed over it, every "tie of the automobiles bearing th*» chains. The. road, be said, had sustained no damage. The soft bed of the road after stormy weather and the, pneumatic cushion of the tire, according to his view, absorbs the chains, without inflicting any appreciable in jury to the road. His opinions -were corroborated by Charles Thad deus Terry. He failed to see why the restriction applied to chained wheels and not to studded tires. The roads were inadequate for modern traffic, he asserted. In the evolution of locomotion the roads had failed to keep pace. They are tho same now as they were long before the discovery of tho automobile. A new surface should be ap plied to the driveways, so that they would be able to sustain the strain of automobile traffic. The bad effect of the New York ordinance would travel to other cities, ■which patterned] their regulations after the metropolis, he declared. The popular impression that .lutomobillßts are superior to the law, declared Mr. Nlles, had gained considerable ground, but It was entirely erroneous They were more amenable to reasonable legisla tion than any other class of people, but In 'his in stance he thought that their good nature nad been violated. The enforcement of the new ordinance in The Bronx would be greatly fill, as the only roads worth travelling over in a motor car are those under the direction of the Park Department. To compel automobilists to go without chains on wheels would drive them to the other thorough fares which were in bad condition. For the preservation of the roads Mr. Shattuck suggested an emulsion composed of water, soft soap and oil. This formula is now Ing used with much success in Boston. Commissioner Smith said that the department had experimented with the emulsion, but the cold weather had forced post ponement until another season of the year. Mr. Field went over the ground that the others had covered, and Mr. Strong caused a mild sensa tion when he asserted that the smooth tires: with out the chains did more damage to the roads than the chain bearing wheels. ' At the conclusion of the hearing the Automobile Club of America offered to have tests made to show the board the effect of the tires upon the roads in various weather conditions. Commissioner Smith thanked them and promised to communicate with the club if the board deemed it advisable to have any such tests. MANY DEEE KILLED IN VEEMONT. Montpelier.

Walter Camp's All-America football team for 1907, with solf-ctinns for second and thin! eleitens, is published In the curreQi Issue of ■■Collier's." Mr. Camp, Yale's 1 athletic mentor, is looked on as an authority In college football, anil for that reason his team i- accepted, as ■ rule, as tho official rank- Ing of the season. Mr. Camp's first loam is made up of the same players la named by "Herbert" in The Tribune, with thre< exceptions AJcoti for Whrter at end, Schulz for Slirigluff, at centre ,and Wendell for Douglas at halfback. AlCOtt and Wendell wet* on The Tribune's second team and were suggested as leading candidates for first honors, CX Wteter, Slinultiff ami Douglas Mr. Camp says: "Wister. of Princeton, while apparently some what below his form of lust year, was still a first dan man, and. with the execptoa of a part of tii» two K;(inrs when Ms physeal condition setmed not of t!if .:■•-?. lir» played a Strung all-round game. "DduQJjas, of :ii4' Navy, while not in the rest physical condition during the early part of thf season, came splendidly toward the «'nd. and In his big game did wonderful work for his team. lie is not only a star In advancing the ball, but also in defensive work, and, In addition to this, his punts were bo well placed as to be a. source of • on stant menace to the Army barks." Slingluff, of the Nay»", pressed tli.-m (referring 'a Brhulz, Grant. Phillips, Cbngdon and Danbar) ■■ II Closely, especially for steadiness and general reli ability. Mr. Camp says of his team: "This team of 1007 would furnish a first eleven equipped t. play the necessarily varied forms of attack and defence essential to victory under th<* present rules. First, as to attack by and defence to that most important feature tho forward pass. Jones is par excellence tin- most skilful man in any back hold to-day in exocuttnK not one kind of for ward pass, but both kinds, namely, tho. short one and the long one. Ho '-an, moreover, throw equally •well the spiral and the "end over end' that stays so ions in the air, and. executed from about forty yards away from the riuil lino, sends chills down the backs of the defence. In Alcott be lias the best man to take either kind of pass, while in Dague he has a man who can be absolutely relied upon to get the ball if touched by some other man. Jones himself would play the midway position on fence, from which he not only did bis remark able running back, ■ but also spoiled tii«< forward pass* of opponents. "Next, as to on-side kicking. In this we have Harlan, of Princeton, admittedly the most success ful performer of the year of this kind of kick. With it he put his opponents in serious difficulties ana proved that it was far more valuable to bis team than any of the loner distance kicks of the other teams. Thus for the two special features of the new game we have chosen ' four men each easily tho leader of his class in some particular part of tho work. Xext as to ordinary attack and defence. In Mc- Cormiek we have the strongest simple lino bucket when we consider that such a man must not only be able to carry the ball IJms.if, but be equally competent to .any another man, this other man having the ball, in that, way line bucking becomes i valuable because of the deception as to the man in possession of the ball, as well as the point where the play strikes. In McCormick and Harlan the combination is complete, while for the wider runs we have. Wendell, who made, the best record in this respect and Is at the same time good on pushing and in defence. With McCormick and Wendell backing up a line the power of th.» sec ondary defence would be Ideal. Then for kicking Harlan would furnish punts, drops and on-side kicks, with McCormick as an occasional alternate, just enough to deceive opponents. Draper gives us the best combination of offence and defence as tackle, as he can cany the ball well and also make openings (Horr, of Syracuse, is the only man to match him in running with the ball), while Bigtow adds that greatest of essentials to a line to-day, namely, a tackle so fast and so tireless as to share the ends' work down the field, while having weight and power enough to fully com plete the tackle's duty. In Ziegler and Erwin, Hanking Schulz, we have an ideal centre trio, one of them, Krwin, acknowledged by all to be the quickest and most active of the season's guards, with a record of spoiling many an opponent's play and yet not leaving his place uncovered. in Schulz there is the steady experience and accurate pass ing so essential, combined with wonderful speed and tremendous power. Finally, Zicgler completes the trio with strength, steadiness and ability to last out any amount of hammering attack, as in stanced In the Pennsylvania-Cornell game, both last year and this." * -HARMSWORTH SELF-EDUCATOR" QUITS. • The. publication known as "The Harmsworth Self-Kducator,"- which was first published in this country by Charles Murray, in December, 1908, suspended publication on Tuesday, but Mr. Mur ray said yesterday that negotiations were pending for its continuance in another form. Ho said that he had lost $164,000 in the venture, which was a success in .England, but did not. seem to take here. Not being able to obtain ' the second Class rales until July, 1907, the larger the circula tion be obtained the more money he lost, because ho had to pay five cents tor every copy sent out.

Hughes, Pennsylvania Champion, Beaten in Brilliant Game. Cornell.
