ftudents Interested & First Clash
of the Gopher Gridiron
By O'Loughlln.~
thousand enthusiastic spectators stood
ound on the campus at the university yester-
afternoonVimd Interfered with the progress
"the first scrimmage of the year of the gopher
Btball forces. They crowded in. so close to
itch the players that end runs were almost
it of the question, and back of the lines were
fecondary lines of defense, twenty deepso
ep in fact, that a mogul engine could not
live gained five yards thru them.
'The interference with the play was wholly
liilntentional. Not a man on the campus would
db anything intentionally to bother or inter
fere with the. progress of the team, but it was
4 case where Individual Interest "resulted badly.
The gridiron on Northrop field was too soft for
tie yesterday without the danger of ruining the
rface. The heavy rain of the night before
not damaged the field/ but the plowing
scrimmage would have had a bad effect upon
tfet soft sod. For this reason the candidates
tfere taken out in front of the armory for their
work. Ir Williams, Assistant. Coach Dobie and
61g Harris were out to look after the men, and
aiter dividing- them into three squads sent them
trip and down the drill ground for a time in
signal practice.
'Headgear was called for and before the spec
tators were well aware what' was un the men
were in a scrimmage which was marked more
ttr its pounding than its precision. The two
teams lined up as follows:
Marshall.. Left end ....Rogers

Dr. "Williams was behind the veterans, while

iiBterans found the opposing line a bit too
'e tiff to their liking Larkiu was new at his
,e gnals, and this caused a little confusion. After
'i- time Brush Irefleld and Liggett began to
make headway, and end runs gave gains suf
ficient to carry the scrimmage well up and
down the field. Dobie"s team put up a stiff
defense, and on offense went into the mixing
tlgorously. It was all rough and ragged, but
no more so than could be expected from the
ifirst scrimmage of the year. The most praise
worthy feature of the struggling was the deter
'mlnatlon and spirit of the men. The veterans
caught their opponents on the charge almost
every time, opening up. holes eso quickly that

Wednesday Evening,
High School Coaches Make Rapid
Progress in Developing
By GH.
One week ago it required a strong imagi
nation to see even the semblance of a football
team in the material which South Side sent
to Coach Goldblum's moleskin kindergarten. Yes
terday It was impossible to overlook the fact
that the bunch on the practice grounds were
aspirants for gridiron honors. The development
made in one week by the raw material mus
tered in under the South Side banner is won
The long grind necessary to shape even vet
erans into a ground-gaining machine Is still
ahead, but the hardest part of the work is
behind. The candidates have learned that they
are out to play football. They have passed the
period of self-cohsciousness nnd are following
the ball, not debating whether or not they want
to play. A number of husky lads are stili
hanging on the sidelines apparently waiting for
a little coaxing. Coach Goldblum declared his
position on the coaxing proposition very em
phatically yesterday. He said: "A.man who
lias to be coaxed to get out and try for the
team is no good. He Is not worth trying out."
Backfield Heavy.
The men who are turning out to practice are
a good lot. The backfield is well un in weight
and the line is fast learning to charge low and
charge a little sooner than the other fellow.
This last lesson^ is being steadily ground into
the linemen, and If they keep up as they have
begun they will be able to hold men consid
erably their superiors in weight by the time
the regular games begin.
Good men are turning up every day. Hol
strom, who played right tackle on the 1903 team,
is expected back Monday and has been men
tioned for the vacant captaincy. Several other
heavy men are now arranging their outside
work so thai they will be able to play,' and
will be out before the alumni game scheduled
for Sept. 29. Manager Solem has also arranged"
a game with Mechanic Arts of St. Paul, to be
played a week later.
Dr. George Goldblum. quarterback on the Chi
cago Fhysicians and Surgeons team lu 1901 and
1902, and an alumnus of South high, was out
helping with the coaching yesterday.
Burgan Is Cautious.
North Side will riot play against the university.
Coach Burgan is unwilling to risk his men in ft
game with players out' of their class, and is op
posed to the forced training necessary to put
them In shape for such a game a week from
So far no attempt has been made to divide the
srraad Into a first and second team. The men
are divided for scrimmage haphazard and every
man of the thirty or more ont will be given a
tboro trial before any selection is made. In
view of the large number of candidates it will be
some time before a first team is evolved and
even then the men will have to fight to
hold their places.
Neither Ertle nor Wilkinson, the two most
promising candidates for the quarter position,
were out yesterday. Green was given a trial on
one of the teams and Captain Marks, who was
out in a suit for the first time this season,
passed the ball for the other. Marks is still a
little off condition and will not mix in the more
strenuous work for several days.
Friday afternoon eleven men picked from the
squad will line up against the alumni. This will
be a practice game, and Coach Burgan will try
out as many men as possible. A week from Fri
day the first outside guime will be played. Nego
tiations are on wlttr Hamiine, Macalester and
St. Thomas, and one of the three will be the'
opposing team.
East Side^s" Heavy Line.
East Side is to haye a heavy line. A tough
estimate places the average weight of the whole
team at 1T0 pounds, and the line will probably
go a little above this. Coach Wyman is still
following out the "hurry up" line of campaign
with which he-started,
avenue bunch getting the idea
speed developed to the point of instinct.
Central is now practicing three hours a day
in preparation for the university contest-Satur
day. The players did n6t leave the field until
6 o'clock last night and Coach -Morse plans to
keep school till i--tonight. The tryout is well
along. Every candidate has been. given a
chance and the first lineup for Saturday's game Is
practically settled.1-
New men with football experience on some
other school team are turning up dally. The
latest addition to the red and blue squad is Sem
ple. formerly of Hill school. He made his first
appearance yesterday and did some work which
promised well for the future.
Enthusiasm in the school is high and there will
be no lack of loyal rooters to cheer on Captal'i
Dickenson's cohorts when they go against the
varsity Hue.
Will Try to Score Goals After
Touchdowns by a Drop
Chicago. Sept. 20.Walter Eckersall is likely
to have new and original duty to shoulder in
the games this fall. It is a duty in the kicking
line at which the maroon quarterback Is most
proficientnamely, of kicking goals from touch
downs. Instead of boosting the oval over the
cross-bar from placement, as is the most common
method of adding the extra point. Eckersall will
drop-kick the pigskin over, provided Coach Stagg
decide* to let him add this feature to his kick
ing game.
According to the gridiron rules, the drop
kick for a try at goal IS a legitimate proced-,
ure, tho until last Saturday it had never been
seen on Marshall "field. Eckersall then tools
advantage of the apparently forgotten ruling,
and after the maroon candidates had scored their
third touchdown of the afternoon against North
Division, he sent the ball sailing over the goal
in easy fashion with a drop-kick.
Since the days of Hershberger. Stagg has
never been favored with a reliable, consistent
goal-kicker, despite his repeated attempts to
develop one. Walter Kennedy in 1899 proved
hims-'lf a competent man ip this department at
the blose of the season, but early in the year
was a crude goal-kicker. Jimmy Henry in 1900
was fair and in 1901. 1002 and 1903 no maroon
showed above the ordinary. As a goal-klcker
from placement Eckersall himself is a com
plete failure, Stagg.having tried him out time
and time again.
In the art of drcp-klcklng, however, "Eckie"
Is a nastmaster. He has proved himself the
superior of any man in the west, if not in the
e*ire country, in this respect during his two
years' service at'the Midway. For him to stand
on the forty-yard line and register a percentage
of close to .900 out of fifty attempts from all
the angles is no task. Naturally it is even eas
ier for him to send the ball over the goal from
the fifteen-yard line, where the rulings declare
that th? attempt at goal should be made. Of
course the kicker is allowed to move back as
far as be may desire from this line.
Shevlin's Weight May Cause Shift in
Yale's Line.
New Haven, Conn., Sept. 20.The most in
teresting piece of campus gossip in evidence
at Yale is that Captain Shevlln will shift one
place in the line and become a tackle. He
tried for fullback last season, but soon dropped
back into his position at end.. His weight is
a factor that makes him needed as tackle, ami
it is thought here .that Jils quickness and
strength will make him a valuable man as a
ball-advancing tackle.

thSl ti
Special to The Journal.
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 20.The inception of foot
ball practice at Nebraska university was at
tended by distressing weather conditions, but
Booth, the head coach, had shaken off some of
the discouragement which had seized him at the
South Bend training camp, and was' in good
spirits. More than thirty men were 1n uniform.
A dozen other candidates were on the side
lines und twice as many more are expected to
reach Lincoln before the end of the week. Booth
Is figuring that he will have upwards of sixty
men from which to pick his first team.
The persistent rains of the past week had
converted the gridiron into a veritable quagmire,
and the players had gone thru only a few min
utes of practice when they were bedraggled
from bead to foot with black Nebraska .mud.
The,, players were divided into two squads,
Booth taking one in charge and assigning the
other to Captain Borg. The gridiron at Ne
braska is notoriously the hardest in the west,
and before the end of each season its granitelike
surface has been responsible for the Injury of
many players. To mend this situation, Booth
inspired the athletic board to plow the field
early in the summer and sow it to millet. The
hay was cut early this month, leaving a healthy
stubble and a soft field which should not hardeff
until late in the season. Booth figures that
the soft field will make the plays decidedly
slower, but visiting teams will be handicapped
as badly as the cornhuskers. High scores nat
urally will scarcely bew possible, but the elimi
nation of most of the danger *of injuring'play
ers should more than counterbalance the factor
of slowness in' the plays.
The roll of candidates has been strengthened
by the addition of one or two.new huskies,'hut
there is no denying that men of pronounced
avoirdupois are still very much in demand. Mean
while Slatf, Taylor and Nelson,"the only guard
possibilities at the training camp, are the only
men of promise who have yet appeared upon
the' campus. Captain Borg declares that others
have given assurance that they will be hi school,
and Booth is anxiously awaiting their' arrival
before he will venture an opinion as to Ne
braska's chances for the. season.
i Cptton, the Wg right .tackle, who crossed the
Minnesota's goal last year for the' first touch
down registered ngalnst' the gophers, and wild
blocked the place kick which enabled Bender
to scoot down the field, for the other, was in
line for the opening campus practice. Cotton
has been rusticating in Colorado during tht
summer, climbing mountain peaks to keep his
weight down, and he is already in fairly good
physical trim. He brought the information that'
Caley, who played a Superb halfback for Colo
rado university and had expected to register
at Nebraska to take football under Booth, had
decided not to become a cornhusker. He will,
however, retire from football, as It is his pur
pose to enter into a matrimonial contract.
Admitting that the line furnishes more or
less of a problem, Booth was well pleased with
the initial practice, and at its conclusion de
clared that the array of new material was as
good as he had ever seen upon the Nebraska
campus. His elation was prompted chiefly by the
fine-prospects as to backs and ends. Nearly a
dozen youngsters, fast and well built, available
either as backs or ends, were out in moleskins
and bidding for places. Inasmuch as the" end
and backfield situation was satisfactory even
at the South Bend eamp. Booth now has a
wealth of material for': those positions from
which he is quite confident that he will be
able to develop several high-class men.
Toward the end of the practice Booth had
sorted out a varsity line-up and was running
the men thru signals. Scrimmage practice will
not be undertaken until almost the eve of the
Grand Island collejge game Saturday.
At least two men were tried out In
each" line position, Captain Borg at cen
ter nnd Johnson at end alone excepted, and it
is much too early to venture a prediction as to
the probable make-up of the line for next Sat
urday. is reasonably

This country smoked 300,000-tons of
tobacco last year. We smoked 7,689
337*000 cigars, an increase of 185,000,-
000 over last year. The cigaret con
sumption was 3,368,212,000, an increase
of over 141,000,000 over last year. The
snuff output was 21,131,000 pounds, an
increase of nearly 1,000,000 pounds over
the previous year.. The production of
smoking and chewing tobacco was 334,-
489,000 pounds, ah increase of 2 per
cent. These are the figures of the To
bacco Leaf. The total value of the to
bacco consumption in 1900 was $263,-
977,000, cigars and cigarets costing
over $160,000,000. The increase in thetackling
tobacco industry is shown by the fig
ures of the last' twenty years.' In 1880
the value of the total produce was, in
round numbers, $116,000,000 in 1890 it
was $195,000,000 in 1900 it was $263,-

000,000. Last year we exported $37,-
000,000 worth of tobaceo and imported
$22,000,000 worth in its various forms.
This is a tobacco-using nation. So

imagine what becomes of over 7,000,-

Big Pitcher Is Watched Carefully
by Connie Mack's Special
New York Sun Special Service.
New York, Sept. 20.Undoubtedly the condi
tion of "Rube" Waddell, the big Philadelphia
pitcher, and the number of games he will pitch
against the giants next month, if the two
teams play for the world's championship, will
affect the betting on the series more than any
other one thing. Recently a number of queries
from fans have been received. They do not know
how to ligure "Rube" in the wagers that are
now being laid. The fact that he has not pitched
since he was defeated at Boston ten days ago in
a thirteen-Inning game has started the rumor
that Waddell will pitch no more this season.
There is not a doubt that "Rube" will cut a
big ligure in the series. Just now he has a
sprained shoulder caused by falling over a grip
in the sleeper between Boston and Philadelphia
the other night when the players were having
their annual straw-hat "cut up."
The shoulder still bothers "Rube!' a bit, but
he is here with the team and may pitch today
or tomorrow. However, Manager Mack will
not work Waddell unless satisfied that he is
in good shape.. He, however, believes that Rube
can be relied upon to take part In the big
Rube is more important than a prima donna
with her maid. The club is carrying an extra
man who acts as "Rube's" keeper. Frank New
house, trainer of many fighters, including
Young Corbett," "Battling" Nelson, "Mike"
Schreck and Benny Yanger, is the faithful
watchman. He has trained several ball clubs,
imd does a little rubbing on the side, but as the
athletics are in good condition, Newhouse's prin
cipal labor is the care of Waddell. He car
ries the money and doles out enough to enable
the eccentric pitcher to make small purchases.
Here in New York Newhouse has redoubled his
vigilance, as it is feared that some agents of
the giants may undertake to lead the big fel
low astray and "keep him In pickle" until after
the big game.
Whenever Rube and Newhouse walk up to a
bar and order two drinks Newhouse gets
side both while Rube wipes his mouth with the

Taylor this morning proved his loyalty by for

It is the belief of the Nebraska authorities
that Coach Stagg of Chicago has no knowledge
of the methods employed by a supposedly over
