Twenty-five husky looking men from
Illinois arrived in Minneapolis this morn
ing, fit and ready for to-morrow's battle
with Minnesota on Northrop field. The
nquad is quartered at the West Hotel.
Athletio Director Huff expressed the
opinion that his men would win
the game. He expressed the opinion
that Illinois . would average - lighter
than Minnesota, but according to
the schedule of weights handed
out by Mr. Huff himself, there will be
scarcely a pound difference in the weight
of the two teams per man.
Coach Holt said that Illinois was not in
the best of condition, but so far as an es
timate can be made from seeing the
players in citizens' rig, the visitors are
very fit. They run to extremes. Half
the men are tall and rangy, the other
half short and stocky. The members of
the team expressed the belief that 5 to 2
on Minnesota were the logical odds on
to-morrow's game. They said that* the
few rooters who accompanied the team
would take all the money they could get
at those terms.
Little Difference In Weight.
The average weight of the eleven Illin
ois men who will start in to-morrow's
game Is 171 Vi- The line averages 177, the
backfield 162. Here are the individual
weights: Rothgeb, right end. 187 Kas
ton, right tackle, 170 Fairweather, right
guard, 187 Wilson, center, 170 Bundv,
left guard, 191 Stahl, left tackle, 187
Cook, left end, 164 Parker, quarter, 163
Pitts, left half. 159 Bronson, fullback,
157 Diener, right half, 170.
The Minnesota team as it lines up to
morrow, will average just about 171
pounds. With the two elevens so evenly
matched In weight, speed, teamwork, and
ability to seize opportunities, will de
termine the result. The visiting team in
cludes six veterans.
About town Minnesota is a pronounced
favorite, and odds of 2 to 1 are offered on
the gophers, or even money that Illinois
will not score. These odds seem hardly
justified by the facts. As one rooter said
this morning, "Minnesota has never out
played Illinois in point of actual football.
During the last two years Illinois has
played just as much football as the gop
hers, but Minnesota's weight told. This
year there is no difference in avoirdupois,
and Illinois has the best team in her his
tory. Under those circumstances Minne
sota cannot be held to have any material
advantage over the Illini."
Yesterday's practice wound up the hard
work of the week for the gophers. This
afternoon light signal practice was the
NERVOUS DYSPEPSIA
A CURE FOR ALL.
Not Patent Cure-AII, Nor a Modern
Miracle, but Simply a Rational
Cure for Dyspepsia.
In these days of humbuggery and de
ception, the manufacturers of patent med
icines, as a rule, seem to think their
medicines will not sell unless they claim
that It will cure every disease under the
tun. And they never think of leaving out
dyspepsia and stomach troubles. They are
nure to claim that their nostrum is abso
lutely certain to cure every dyspeptic and
he need look ho further.
In the face of these absurd claims it is
refreshing to note that the proprietors of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have carefully
refrained from making any undue claims
or false representations regarding the
merits of this most excellent remedy tor
dyspepsia and stomach troubles. They
make but cne claim for it, and that is,
that for indigestion and various stomach
troubles Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is a
radical cure. They go no farther than
this and any man or woman suffering
from indigestion, chronic or nervous dys
pepsia, who will give the .remedy a trial
will find that nothing is claimed for it that
the facts will not fully sustain.
It is a modern discovery, composed of
harmless vegetable ingredients acceptable
to the weakest or most delicate stomach.
Its great success in curing stomach
troubles is due to the fact that the med
ical properties are such that It will digest
whatever wholesome food is taken into
the stomach, no matter whether the stom
ach is in good working order or not. It
rests the overworked organ and replen
ishes the body, the blood, the nerves, cre
ating a healthy appetite, gives refreshing
sleep and the blessings which always ac
company a good digestion and proper as
similation of food.
In using Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets no
dieting is required. Simply eat plenty of
wholesome food and take these Tablets at
each meal, thus assisting and resting the
stomach which rapidly regains its proper
digestive power, when the Tablets will
be no longer required.
Nervous Dyspepsia is simply a condition
In which some portion or portions of the
nervous system are not properly nour
ished. Good digestion invigorates the
nervous system and every organ in the
body.
Stuart** Dyspepsia Tablets are sold, by
all druggists at 50 cents per package.

physical condition.
Non-Partlzan View.
A dispatch from Chicago gives a very
good non-partlzan view of to-morrow's
game, as follows:
"Illinois' game with Minnesota is the
one event in western football Saturday
that is looked forward to with consider
able interest. The Illini have gone to the
twin cities with the expressed intention
of defeating the gophers. It is likely that
the team from Champaign and many of
its backers really think that Illinois will
win. There is no reason why they should
not have this opinion.
"When you once think it over, Minne
sota's great prowess just at present is
based on a single gamethe contest last
Saturday. One game Is hardly enough to
prove the mettle of an elevenespecially
when that'game against a team as weak
as Grinnell probably is.
"Minnesota is naturally the favorite for
the game with Illinois, but the chances
of the Illini are far from being gloomy.
They are very good indeed. Illinois has
had a pretty good try out already this
season. It has been beaten, too, and that
means that the members of the eleven
have probably learned a good deal.
Whether they win or not, Coach Holt's
players will give Minnesota a hard game."

SPY WAS A SHOEMAKER.
Madison, Wis., Nov. 7.Football practice yes
terday afternoon was seriously Interfered with
by the appearance of a stranger who followed
the men out to the golf grounds where the team
was to practice.
The suspicions of Coach King were aroused
and when the man was asked where he was from
he replied that he was from Northwestern, and
desired to watch the practice of the team.
When asked to leave the grounds, the stranger
was obdurate and refused to move beyond the
edge of the field. Jerry Kiordan came to the as
sistance of Coach King, but his pleadings were
without avail. Next Sakigowa, the little Jap,
was called upon and his appearance caused the
stranger to retreat, but the stranger was not
deprived of watching the practice, and climbing
upon a box car of the Illinois Central standing
outside the field caused the practice to be de
layed till nearly dark.
It developed later that the stranger was
George White, a Madison shoemaker, who had
gone out to watch the practice and afterward
get a line on the Minnesota game so as to place
a small wager on the result.
In the signal practice the linemen were coached
on charging and the backs on forming Intefer
ence and getting into the plays together. Fol
lowing this the varsity was lined up against the
second team for fifteen minues of scrimmage, In
which the veterans were allowed to keep the
ball, although the scrubs held them several times
for downs.
At times the varsity men played a fast game.
Their work on the whole was very ragged and
not satisfactory to Coach King. The backs were
rather slow in starting and did not help each
other In the plays.
Captain Juneau Is still on crutches. It begins
to look now as if he would not get in shape
for the Minnesota game. His lame knee is Im
proving very slowly. Lerum is also on the crip
pled list with a weak ankle, but he managed to
go through the signal practice and scrimmage,
each night. All the rogular varsity men were In
the line up except Captain Juneau.
MICHIGAN RESPECTS THE GOPHERS.
Special to The Journal.
Ann Arbor. Mich., Nov. 7.From now on there
will be nothing but secret practice at Ferry
field. Yost has announced that the open
Wednesday will be no more. It has been given
out that the team has been resting and that no
scrimmages have been indulged In, although a
long, fast signal practice has been carried
through each evening by Captain Weeks. The
regulars are all out and in harness except Red
den, who is out of the game for the second time
this fall, with a sprained ankle, and Carter.
Graver, substitute quarterback, who relieved
Redden In the Wisconsin game, will probably
play left end In the Iowa game Saturday, giv
ing Redden a chance to get well In time for
the struggle with Coach Stagg's pupils on Nov.
15. Carter hurt his leg yesterday and will be
out for some days.. Otherwise the line-tip will
be the same, as before unless Lawrence goes
In instead of Jones at fullback. Yost hopes
to make a star player out of Lawrence. In
the few minutes that he played at the end of
Saturday's game, his work was a little slow and
lie went into the line too high, thus his gains
were not as large as those of Jones, who is play
ing like a fiend in order to hold his place on
The team. As might he expected, Lawrence finds
difficulty In holding his 200 pounds up to the
pace set byi Weeks, Ilernsteln and Heston, who
are claimed to be the fastest trio of backs which
Michigan ever produced.
Palmer, who played his second game In fast
company last Saturday, promises to develop into
one of the best tackles in the middle west.
Sweeley, who started in the season late, is Im
proving In condition as well as Palmer. Michi
gan will be much stronger when she meets Chi
cago on Marshall field than she was when she
went against Wisconsin. Up to the Ohio game
there was a constant change of players and posi
tions, but from now on there should be a steady
improvement until the Thanksgiving game with
Minnesota.
No secret is made of the fast that Michigan
expects to defeat Iowa, the score depending upon
the weather. If It Is wet, the tally, of course,
will be low but if cold, brisk football weather
should turn up, Michigan expects to crowd the
third-figure column. Yost is constantly warn
ing the men against overconfidence. Chicago
always fights the hardest against the wolverine
team. As Stagg is doing his utmost to regain
Chicago's lost prestige, the Michigan football
men reallz ethat there can be no napping.
It Is too early to make a comparison between
Michigan and Minnesota, until the gopher-badger
game. Minnesota's whirlwind score against
Grinnell was a great surprise at the University
of Michigan. Grinnell has a reputation of put
ting out a scrappy team and no such score was
anticipated. The general opinion seems to be
that the gopher team has improved greatly since
Its defeat by Nebraska, and may still have to
be reckoned with in the middle west champion
ship.
Michigan's other game Is with the eleven
from Oberlln (Ohio) college, a team on which
Cornell ran up half a hundred points. So It is
expected that this will make a good practice
game as an appetizer four days before the final
game with the students of Coach Williams.
HAHVAKD PLAYS SNAPPY GAME.
Cambridge, \lpt:s., Nov. 7.The work of the
Harvard varsity football eleven on Soldiers' field
yesterday afternoon was by far the most encour
aging of the season. During the middle of the
Week there was fear in the Harvard camp that
Pennsylvania might score because of the loose
work of the Harvard eleven.
Yesterday, however, the whole eleven got Into
the game and worked together well. The line
men charged hotter and the backs were quicker
in getting away and there was not so much
fumbling. For the greater part of the scrim
mage yesterday afternoon the second eleven was
cflveu the ball to give the varsity practice on the
defensive, as a precaution for Saturday's game,
but in six aud eight downs the second eleven
could not penetrate the first eleven's line.
The scare of Ineligibility has once more invad
ed Harvard. There Is a rumor In Cambridge that
Pennsylvania has sent on asking for Information
regarding King, Harvard's ii40-pound center. It
is claimed that King had played four years be
fore be came to the Harvard law school last
fall. The athletic committee has done nothing
in regard to the case, according to the statement
of Professor IIoilIs, but the football manage
ment is Investigating tlje case. Little stock is
taken in the report, and it Is stated unofficially
that King has a letter from the president of the
state university of Indiana to the effect that he
did not play there four years.
King's loss would seriously cripple the Har
vard line, as he Is really the only available man
for the position, but his loss Is not yet feared.
H0LL1STER WON'T KESIGN.
Chicago, Nov. 7."I have made no announce
ment: to the effect that I have resigned
coach of Northwestern university's football team,
for I have at present no intention of resigning."
With this statement Coach Holllster last eve
ning made a denial of reports of his contemplated
resignation, to taEe effect at the end of this sea
son. Unless requested to resign by the athletic
association, he says he will be In charge of the
purple team another year at least.
"I have realized ever since I first came to
Northwestern that there has been some opposition
to me among the alumni, and I suppose every
coach has this to contend with at all Institu
tions, but to me in person there has been made
no complaint. If at any time the university no
longer desires my services I shall tender my
resignation, but until either the university or the
athletic board of control intimates to me that a
change is desired, I shall not band in t y resig
nation."
Prank E. Lord, a former student, and other
Northwestern alumni, are urging the removal of
Dr. Holllster as coach, but they have made no
formal petition to the athletic board of con
trol. What they hope to effect is to have some
one employed next year during the football sea
son as coach of the team and retain Holister as
general iwanager of all the teams as well
physical director in the university.
SONS OF ELI OFFER ODDS.
Princeton, N. J.. Nov. 7.All of Princeton's
varsity players but Captain Davis were In uni
form yesterday afternoon for the flrBt time since
the Cornell game. Davis has a bruised neck
and the coaches will .not let hira resume work
until he is entirely recovered. The playing
yesterday was pretty ragged, but the men showed
lots of snap and dash. Dewitt, the big guard,
who has been away on a hunting trip since last
Saturday, was In the game again, and he con
tinued to show up brilliantly. He tore through
the scrub Hue in fine style, and repeated his per
formance of last Saturday, catching the ball on
i " W&
his own punt and running a lamg distance before
he was downed.
Yale's backers are beginning to send their
mouey in to he covered. About $1,000 canie
yesterday and it was snapped up quickly by the
I'rincetoniaiiB at odds of 5 to 8. Yale taking the
long end. The annual Yale-Princeton freshman
game will be played on Snturday. The tigers
eubs are strong this year and It is thought they
will land a vlfctory.
v
OTHER GAMES UNINTERESTING.
Except the local contest, the result of none
of the games to-morrow is much in doubt. Wis
consin probably will roll uji a big score upon
the demoralized Northwestern team, and Michi
gan will follow its usual custom of piling up ns
mnny points ns possible upon Iowa, which is like
ly to offer little resistance to the wolverines.
Chicago ought to have nearly as easy a time with
Indiana, judging from the dope, since Illinois,
nfter losing to the maroons, piled up 47 points
on the boosters.
' Nebraska probably will win from Kansas by
two or three touchdowns. ,
Pennsylvania has picked up a little In the last
two weeks, but nevertheless the Quakers are
nearly certain to lose to Harvard, which like
wise has been Improving. Columbia and Brown
are likely to have the closest game In the east.
Brown expects to win from the New Yorkers,
but will get a tough -argument first. Lafayette
and Annapolis also may furnish an interesting
contest.
CORNELL EASES UP.
Ithaca, N. Y., Nov. 7.Cornell has not been
able to accomplish much during the past week,
and the eleven will enter the Washington and
Jefferson game with no special preparation.
The coaches fear that the players have got stale,
and on this account the work of the week has
been especially light.
Of the varsity men who reported yesterday,
the most that was required was a short run
aside from a half hour spent in kicking the
ball, although Captain Warner and Davitt, of
tueir own accord, went in at tackle on a scrub
eleven. As far as injuries to players are con
cerned, Cornell is fairly fortunate, for Smith,
Warner. Hunt and Brewster seem to be entirely
well. I'urcelUs swollen toe Is a cause for alarm
and he may be out of the game permanently.
8TUDENT STRIKERS WIN.
Northfleld. Minn., Nov. 7.The boys of the
Northfleld high school football team, who stood
by the captain and manager, whom the super
intendent suspended from school, have won a
victory.
The school board held a meeting and decided
to allow the captain and manager to return to
school, which was all the boys wished, and to
day all will return.
It was nt first thought that trouble would
result, but itseems that the school board be
came aware that it was in the wrong and made
things right.
The football team has been dlsbnnded and will
reorganize under the name of the Northleld Ath
letic Association.
YALE HAS ANOTHER REST.
New Haven. Conn., Nov. 7.Again yesterday
the Yale coaches let up on the varsity squad.
The entire team of regulars went out to the
field, but'only three varsity men played in the
one ten-minute half against the college eleven.
For three-quarters of an hour, however, the var
sity had secret practice, the entire time being
devoted to signal work under the direction of
about ten coaches. Big Glass and Holt and
Kinney were sent back to the gymnasium after
the secret practice to take further rest. The
other members of the first squad pranced round
the field to limber up.
BROWN TAKES LIGHT WORK.
Princeton, R. I.. Nov. 7.The practice of the
Brown varsity team this week has been very
light. The coaches, thinking that the team
might grow stale if they were worked too hard,
made practice easy for them all week. All
those who received injuries in the Lafayette
game were out yesterday in good condition,
going through fast signal practice. No game
was played with the scrubs.

from Cincinnati yesterday, and while the Ameri

evasive, from his manner it is believed there Is
no real foundation for the recent rumors regard
ing the American League's contemplated entrance
of Pittsburg. "It is true," said Johnson, "that
three gentlemen from Pittsburg came to Chicago
and in an interview at my office offered a site
and substantial backing for an American League
ball team there.
"The men had influence and money back of
their proposition, and offered a site which is
much better than that of the National League.

TS THE PJtIZE RING
In the boxing contest scheduled,- for twenty
rounds between Bonny Yanger" of Chicago and
Tony Moran of New York, at St. Louis last
night, Yauger knocked Moran out in the third
round by a solar plexus blow.
?Both men were weighed at 125 pounds. From
thci beginning It was apparent that Yanger had
the advantage. In the first round he devoted
himself to "feeling out" his opponent. In the
second round the boxing started in fiercely, but
in stepping away from a clinch, Yanger landed
a left upper cut on the Jaw, which put Moran
to the mat, and nine seconds were counted on
htm. Moran endeavored to retrieve himself,
but a blow on the -head landed him, but he was
saved -by the gong.
In the third round Yanger seemed determined
to win out in a hurry. Moran could not find
him. After fiddling around for a few .moments,
Yanger seized his opportunity and landed a blow
on the solar plexus and Moran was counted out.
The United States war department is reluc
tant to commit itself upon the subject of prize
fighting'In the army. Some time ago the com
manding general of the department of Missouri
requested a devision of the department upon the
question of the right of an enlisted man In the
army to participate as a principal in an athletic
boxing contest. .
In reply he was Informed that "there are
some subjects as to which it is impossible for
the war department to prescribe a uniform rule,
and that this is one of them. But apart from
the strict law In the case it is a matter of com
mon information that local sentiment is divided
in respect to contests of the kind described, and
this adds to the difficulty of framing a rule
where there are no legal obstacles In the way of
its preparation.
"There being no legal power in the department
to establish a rule on the subject, the acting sec
retary of war decides that the question present
ed be left to the regulation of the post com
mander."
Jeffries is expected at San Francisco soon to
talk over the preliminaries for a fight for the
championship of the world, to be decided in May
or June next.
Jeffries is in many respects a peculiar person.
He attends to all negotiations concerning match
es himself, which is the personal reason Why
Billy Delaney and Kid Egan have nothing to say
In response to the Corbett challenge. Harry
Corbett, who is looking after Jim's interests at
San Francisco, says:
"I am satisfied now that a match between
Jeffries and Jim will be made and I am confident
arrangements will be such that the big fight will
be brought off in this city. This is the only
place In America In which such events can be
decided without danger of official interference.
Here the sport is recognized as legitimate."
Kid McCoy and Jack Boot have been practical
ly matched to box rounds at the Transport Ath
letic club of Chicago. Billy Everett is responsi
ble for getting the men's consent to face each
other. He said: "I came from Chicago to New
York to see McCoy, and found him in a genial
mood to talk fight. Root we had secured. The
kid looked favorably upon my proposal, and
asked for no special cOnditons.
"McCoy looks-bigger and stronger than ever
before, and the people of Chicago can feel as
sured that they will see one of the very best
bouts that has ever taken place there."

A ray of light was let into the trials and
tribulations of horse owners when George
H. Davis of the racing firm of Davis &
Van Kuren called at the New York Sun
office last night to say that, since hia
horse Bounteous failed to win at Aque
duct on Wednesday, he had been made
miserable by those who backed him. *
"They have been sending me letters by
the bushel," said Mr. Davis, "and they
have been calling me up on the telephone
at all*hours of the day and night, until
I feel that I must do something. My life
has been threatened even, and for that
reason alone I believe that my correspond
ents must be catered to In some way.
"As matters have reached a crisis, and
as I wish to be allowed to live in peace,
I want the Sun to publish the following:
" 'To My Friends and Horse Gamblers
at Large: Being, in receipt of about a
thousand letters so far to-day, inquiring
as to the race run by my horse Boun
teous yesterday, -1 cannot find time to
answer them separately, so issue this
statement for the benefit of all.
" T wish to say that I have ordered the
trainer of said horse to have him placed -
in a vacant lot adjoining' my stable, and
a day will be set for his execution, to
which all of you are invited. I trust the
friends that have threatened my life, both
by gun and knife, will send their guns
to the stable that they may be cleaned
and loaded with the proper slugs. The
one landing on the horse first will be given
his choice of the many horses I now sup
port. I wish to say that there is little
choice, all the horses being about equal
in looks and ability (both on the track
and at the feed trough). All the harness,
blankets, electrical appliances for secur
ing speed and a complete line of feed bills,
etc., will be given away as souvenirs of
the occasion.
" T wish further to say that, after hav
ing had to borrow ?5 to get home on the
day a newspaper reporter had me as
winning $20,000, I am inclined to believe
that you cannot always believe what you
read. Trusting this announcement will
relieve the letter carriers and be a solace
to my friends, I remain yours very truly,
"George H. Davis.' ",.
