Marshall's Famous Kick.
Then Minnesota/with the pigskin on
Chicago's thirty-nine-yard line, resolved
to have a stab at the goal. Marshall
dropped back, Larkin poised the ball
for him and the player's foot sent the
ball true between the posts.
It watf a great shot, the ball%andered
slowly toward its mark, while the root
ers of both sides held their breath and
then dropped over the crossbars.

the Minnesotans that it is dangerous to

roons looked like winners for about five
I*, minutes, but could not hold the pace,
'r and Larkin punted out of danger.
The half closed just after Chicago,
one of the rare times in the game, had
gained tenyards in close play. The ball

Minnesota's splendid student band,
sixty pieces strong, marched around the
field playing a war song, in which the
rx xooters joined.
Chicago started in the second half
with a relapse of form. The men seemed
slow. Minnesota soon moved up close
enough to try for another field goal, but
the ball fell short and was carried back
twenty yards by Eckersall. Then came
another long period of punting and
scrimmage, neither team gaining much

New Rules Opened Game.
The new rules made possible a game
'of unusual Bpectacular interest to the
crowd. Under the old code, Minnesota
beef would have gained repeated first
downs, as five yards seemed rather easy
for them at times. But the ten-yard
gain necessary to retain possession of
the ball as a little too much for the
gopher team, and in consequence the
was opened up, to the everlasting
elight of the spectators.
With both sides forced to kick once
in three plays, Eckersall and Larkin,
the punters, found themselves in a cork
ing duel. Eckersall did not average
much more in the length of his kicks,
but received his opponents "spirals''
in better fashion and ran the ball back
f&r better.
And at that "Eckie" as a marked

speed with its immense driving power,
and also showed a versatile attack.
Marshall as as great a factor on of

Stage's Tricks Wouldn't Work.
The defense of Minnesota as sAperb,
as it .has .been for yea*s~ All of Stagg's
tricks failed to catch the gophers off
guard. A favorite play, most often
ed hut which never gained an inch
for Chicago, was a double pass with"
fake interference for an end run.. The
halfback recetfingthe ball from Eeker
sall, passed it to Finger for a straight
buck thru center. Safford, the huge
gopher center, as always in his place,
waiting for the attack, and he repulsed
it in fine shape.
Naturally the weather conditions
worked havoc with Chicago and in some
measure excused the slow, halting work
of Steffen, Chicago's plays, which de
pend for their successful execution on
quick starting, were frustrated by them.
All of the maroon backs floundered
badly jnidfield, from where going was
On the other hand, Minnesota did
better. Their heavier line had better
luck, as the Chicago forwards found
the footing uncertain. The gruelling
assault of the gophers was more con
centrated, and every player was inter
fering for the man with the ball or
dragging him along. Consequently the
attack gathered force as it rolled ahead.
Thus, mud or no mud, it made progress.
N Fluke for Minnesota.
The score of 4 to 2 is streakish and
indicates open work of the first order.
Marshall's field \goal as no fluke by
any means. His line held like a stone
wall while he got the kick away and it
seemed he could have consumed a few
more seconds before booting the ball.
Eckersall's work was brilliant too
much cannot be said of it. His handl
ing of punts was wonderful, asr the
whole gopher team as usually upon
him when he caught the ball. His
he line and
ggbng and dodging thru a swarm
of gopher tacklers was thrilling and of
wonderful pluck and courage. The lit
tle general ran his team splendidly, as
did Larkin when the gophers were forc
ing the fight.
Parry and Walker did strong work in
getting down the field, under
7 Eck's"
kicks. The former made some great
tackles until' an injury slowed him up
in the second half. His presence of
mmd downing Larkin behind the
line gave Chicago its score.
Twice Parry over-ran his man .and
Larkin got away with good gains, which
offset the splendid kicks of Eckersall.
It was disappointing to Chicago on
those two occasions to see half the dis
tance gained by great punts recovered
by the gophers.
Eckersall appeared to be aching all
the time for a good chance for a goal
from the field. His onlv attempt for a
score by that method fell short in the
first half and he never got near to the
gopher line again.

London, Nov. 10.Heavy rain is now
making up for the long period of
drought which has prevailed for so
many months. Not in many yearshas
such a tremendous downpour visited the,
city as that which lasted without cessa

The annual event came off yesterday
amid quite a downpour. A for the

more upon the procession than his pre
decessors, one could not help thinking
that the cost was quite out of propos

A it wended along the street more
jeers and jokes could be heard at the
tin-clad knights, who awkwardly be

thus the republican maiority will be
precisely equal to the entire democratic

Mr. Gompers. has arranged for a con
ference with President Roosevelf onj
the question of anti-injunction legisla
tion, after the session of congress has
begun. This question will then be
gone over in detail. Mr. Gompers'
legal adviser will be present, as will
the attorney general in the president's
cabinet, and the result of the confer
ence will determine the attitude of the
Roosevelt administration and likewise
of the republican party, on the anti
injunction question. In order that the
position of the administration may not
be misunderstood, it is the purpose ot
the president, after the conference is
ended, to issue a formal statement to
the country embodying his policy with
the reasons back of it. The adminis
tration is already more or less directly
on record as being opposed to the re
peal of the injunction statute. The
White House statement will close the
incident so far as the republican party
is concerned.

will, in ins annuai audi bob, review the
late campaign and endeavor to justify
the position which he took with refer
ence to it and explain why it was that
he met with failure.
From friendly sources, it is learned
that while Mr. Gompers really believes
that it would be a good thing for or
ganized labor in this country if it could
solidify for.pohtiQal purposes, he haB
heen "controlled in p"ait, so5
tar as this

spirit of opposition which he has been
