Walter Camp, In Chicago, gives out the following interview: "From expressions of spectators at the great games in the east this fall," "said, "the new rules will find hearty favor with the people, and the people make or unmake any game of sport. In the new rules we have plays that can be made far easier than under the old rules, Forward passes, the ten-foot rule and three downs, and, in many other, instances, under the new rules, give greater scope for better playing. Tha game has taken on life that will make It a highly favorite one with the public under the new rules. In the eaBt the people are delighted."

PROSECUTION CLOSES IN LICORICE PASTE CASE (Continued from First Page.) ation. Mr. Duke said he suggested to Mr. Jungbluth,' president of the Mac Andrews & Forbes company, a corpor ation controlled by the Continental company, to buy out the Weaver & Sterry company. That owing to diffi culty they were experiencing in getting raw root, Mr. Duke said, he objected to selling paste to others, as he did not deem it wise to furnish others with root or paste when their own supply might at any time bo curtailed. Mr. Duke also said he told Mr. Jungbluth that he did not consider It good business' to sell the paste to competitors without mak ing a fair profit. In view of the large investment they had in the licorice paste industry. They had finally agreed upon ten cents per pound as a fair price tor the paste. He Insisted there had been no attempt to raise the price to an unreasonable figure. Mr. Duke concluded his direct exam ination by saying that at his sugges tion the MacAndrows & Forbes com pany purchased the Young company's business. . "Who owns the stock of the MacAn drews & Forbes company?" was Mr. Parker's final question. "The Continental Tobacco company owns 70 per cent, of the stock. The re maining 30 per cent, was given by the Continntal company to the men actu ally In charge of the business of tho1 concern." "Were you much In the office of the MacAndrews & Forbes company?" ' I never was there. If they had any business they came to me," replied the witness. "Why did Mr. Jungbluth object to the increase of the price of licorice root?" queried Mr. Taft. "He thought we had better supply the independent dealers at a low price so they wouldn't be induced to go Into the root business, and, therefore, Inter fere with our own root supply." Mr. Duke said they . bought out Young & Lewis to get control of their root supply. "You wanted to keep every .one else out of the business'" "It was a matter of supreme Indif ference to me whether we sold to the Independent dealers or not," said, Mr. Duke. A SEA INCIDENT. How the U. S. S- Wisconsin Surprised Mr. Hill's Minnesota. The wife of Captain Drake of the battlcshln Wisconsin is soon to be the gucs: of a prominent Chicago society won an. Mrs. Drake took leave kf her husband in Yokohama in September and soiled for Seattle in the steam ship Minnesota, one of James J. Hill's mammoth boats, arriving there early n October. In connecti-n with her sailing from Japan an incident occurred which the ;ns'ieners of the Minnesota will not soon fo.rget. and which was novel to tho high The Wisconsin which had bem cruirtir.sr around with the Asiatic ficel, hec1 been ordered home with a full crew of between 800 and 900 men, many of whom had served their terms of enlistment and were to be mustered out upon their arrival In San. Francisco. For a week the Wis consin lay at anchor inside the break water at V( Ik ham a. admired by all foreigners and a welcome sight to all Ar.t'jr'.eans. The day previous to the departure of the ship the boat's crew had tona ashore, and their baseball Vui's hn.i tau-eht the nine from the Imperial University at Toklo, s.rao- tliing about the great American game. The same morning of the day that the Minnesota was scheduled to leave Yo kohama fcr Seattle the homeward bound pennant of the battleship was seen flying astern of the boat which lay in hailing distance of the Minne sota. The homeward-bound pennant of the Wisconsin is the especial i.rido of every jackey that treads h-.r deck. The crew always buys the 'iennant, according tc custom, and they are en titled tii a fJot if ribbon for every man the, chip carries. At any rats, tho hcmunvaid-bound pennant of tha Wisconsin, which is of the finest silk tho Orient provides, is nearly COO feet long, and ihe boys think it is the prettiest thing that floats in the breeze next to the fctars and Strips. In that cle.ir oriental September morninsr the Wisconsin's homeward bound pennant was a pretty slht as it roundfcd out from the topmost point of the hUVitest, mast, and anchored on th's main deck astern, It round out to t:m brisk breeze that came inward over the bav. At lunc-heor. tiir e "tiffin" they call It lu the Eaet-Captain Drake brought hh wife iil;rard the Minneacta and took tiflln with Captain Rinder- Upon leaving the ship he waved adieu and said: "I'll see you later." SSoSon afterward, the Wlso.nsin s. tamed slowly past the Minnesota, wT.ii the h-ui'cwatdl)! unil pennant gallantly fly irr and .the b;.nu playing "Hmc, SSweet Home." In a couple of hours the smoke from her huge stacks disap peared below the horizon and none thought to see the Wisconsin asaln. Later in the day the Minnesota sailed for home, taking the same route as the Wisconsin. For a time the course of tho northern and of the southern routes from Yokohama to the United States coincides. Then one bends sharply to the south toward Honolulu and the other as sharply north toward the Islands. Just as the sun was casting its last brilliant coloring over the waters of the Pacific the passengers of tho Minnesota were surprised to see the Wisconsin, directly ahead and steam ing at about one-quarter speed. Hav- ng reached the open waters of the Pacific, Captain Drake had "loafed' with a view tij letting the 'Minnesota overtake hurt. It was a pretty sizht as the big steamer overhauled the great battleship, the passengers of the former, Mrs. Drake included, wonder ing what was to happen, Mrs. Drake went ontothe bridge and through the marine glasa saw her husband on the quarter dock." in full uniform. The battleship's full crew were drawn up on deck, their officers at their head. The arrangement of the crew was artistic In the extreme as they pre sented an almost solid phalanx from the main deck to the crow's nest. The white uniforms of the men slis tened In the setting sun, and to the man who had been in the orient for three montft's the "Wisconsin presented a goodly fright, 4 flight which thrilled the heart and fired slumbering patriot ism. The band of the Wisconsin was on deck playing patrlotio airs. "Wish I was In the land of cotton," came floating in rythmical strains across tho Intervening waters. The Minnesota, having drawn even with the battleship, slowed her en gines, and tM'tWo great bunts sailed slowly side by side. 'As the last strain of 'iDlxlo" came across the waters the flag of the Wisconsin was dipped In salute and nearly 900 deep-chested, leather-lunged young fellows gave three? cheers. It was like the blast fromfrom so many trumpets. The passengers of the Minnesota hastily organized' a cheer for the Wisconsin, but compared w(th what was sent it tounded like the wail of a dying in fant against the battle roar of a lion. "My Country, 'TJs of Thee" struck up the Wisconsin's band, and every tar on board who could sing Joined In the chorous with a will. So did the passengers of the Minnesota. The song concluded down came the Wis consin's flag a second time followed by three cheers fur Mrs. Drake. A moment's pause as the sinking sun made its last plunge Into the western waters, and then came the stirring notes of "The Stars and Stripes." While band was still play tho boys of the Wisconsin gave three cheers and a tiger for their beloved flag. The music ceased as the last faint echo of the huzzas came softly, born by an Idle breeze. Darkness closed in, the lights of the battleship began to twinkle the throaty whistle of the Minnesota blew three blasts for "farewell," the Wisconsin turned her prow southward, the Minnesota stuck her nose into the north wind, adn the shades of the oriental night fell still deeper as the great battleship and the great steamship parted company upon the bin eboson of the Pacific Chicago Record-Herald . MARKS ON OLD SILVER. Their Use In Determining Its Age and Genuineness. Every mark on your old silver means something, and if you care to be sure about its age or maker a study of these marks and the system is essen tial. A record has been kept at Gold smiths' Hall, London, for five centuries of all annual data letters and of the registered silversmiths and their pri vate marks. In 1337 King Edward III. granted a character to the Goldsmiths' Guild. During the reign of Edward IV. the Goldsmiths' Company lof London, as it came to be known. Invented and mit into practice an alphabetical system of marks, changing each year, There were similar codes in the .provincial assay offices. This system is one of the few bo duests of the middle ages which have stood the test of time practically with 'out change, says Country Life in lAmerica. By the provisions of this system we have not cnly a lasting in dex by which to judge the age of gold and silver, but we have a guarantee of genuineness. Neither the date marks for makers's markg are hall marks, properly speak ing, though all marks on silver are commonly referred to as hall marks. The true hall marks are the leopard a.d the lion. The leopard's head was used first, from 1300, and in 1545 a lilm passant ' was added. These marks were punched Into the metal with a die, the animal appearing in a shield or oblons field. Until 1550 a small crown appeared over the lion; from 1557 to 1680 the puncheon followed the outline ul tha lion's body; after that the lion appear ed on an oblons shield. These various forms of the hall mark indicate certain broad periods, and are sometimes helpful in determining the age cf a piece of silver when the date mr.rk is indistinct. The date letter or year mark svstem Beems to have- been definitely settled about 1518, for although there was.an alphabetical system more than fifty years before it is customary to go back to 1518 an accurate starting point. Charles II. raised the standard of the metal and in 1695 the new quality was given a new mark Britannia, sit ting in an oblong puncheon, with a lion's head, erased. The standard was found to be too soft for uractlcal pur poses, however, and in 1720 there was a return ti the old, and present, stand ard of metal, with the leopard's head and lion passant. Naturally, these Britannia pieces are rare. Makers began to use their private mark3 about 1363. At first they used the first two letters of the surname; about 1739 the initials were sub stituted. For example, prior to this date Paul Lamerie's mark was La;, afterward it became p. L. Thus there w-ere four marks on the silver-up to 1784 leopard's head, lion, date letter maker's mark. In .1784 the soverereign's head was added the governmental customs mark making five punches in all. There were changes made from time to time in fixed hall marks which are worth noting. For example the leop ard's head was set in a puncheon fol lowln its, outlines until 1678, when it began to appear in 1 a symmetrical shield of five sides. In 1696 the head was reduced some what in size.' In 1720 the lespard lost his beard and his shield became ob lonr, and In 1823 his crown was taken away from him. These were all London marks. There were In addition, provincial marks. The Edinburgh hall mark dates from 1457. It was a triple castle or tuwer. The standard mark was a thl3tle, which was substituted for the assay master's initials In 1757. The date tet ter cycles began in Edinburgh In 1681, Glasgow had a curious, emblem a tree with a bird In tho top, a bll hanging from one branch, and a fish across the trunk, stamped In an oval puncheon. The Shefffield and Birm ingham hall marks were a crown and an anchor respectively. With the lion passant as the standard mark. Dublin had a crowned harp. Other special marks were lijns used In Ches ter, Newcastle, and many ' Scottish towns. Familiarity with these provin cial marks will often prevent confus ion in studying old silver. Now to go back to the subject of date marks. I cannot do more than bareli- indicate what there Is In tho cubject for those who jvlsh to. go into it seriously. Different cities or halls had different year marks. I will dal only with the London marks, as being by far the most important. Each year had assigned to it a letter of the alphabet, Which Was stamped on every piece of silver made cr sold in London that year. When the al phabet was used up they went back to A again, taking usually a sllehtly different form of letter. These alpha bets stopped at the letter U, so thai each uf those cycles Is an even twenty years W lengrti. One way of counterfeiting old silver is to make a pervet copy of an old piece In some alloy and give it a thlch coating of silver by the modern elec troplate process. Such counterfeits are treated skillfully, hall marks and all being reproduced. On the bottom or inside of the piece may sometimes be found the granulat ed or crys tallized surfaces left by this process, though these are usually tooled over if In sight. Sometimes English hall marks have been cut from a spoon or other small article of jrreat age and transfered to a larger clece of more modern make.
