VOL. XXI. BILLINGS. MONTANA, FRIDAY. DECEMBER 1, 1905. NO. 62 CCHICA BY CLO RUB TWO POINTS GIV WINDY CITY THE WESTERN OTBALL CHAMPION Ip. SAFE TOU Only 8orIng,-O Poor ' Lacking Somewh, 'Crowd of Sp Chicago, Nov. 30. -- - igan, 0. The undisputed honor of the football championship was earned Chicago today by the close score two points, earned on a safety touch down in the second half by splendid work of Catlin of Chicago, but also by the poor judgment of Clark of Michi gan in trying to run back a punt of Eckersall, which barely reached Mich igan's goal line. He was thrown across the line by Catlin, after he had thrown off two Chicago tacklers, and two points on a safety touchdown were re corded for Chicago, the only scoring done in the game. The game was devoid of spectacular features. Brilliant open field play by Chicago and hard, grinding, man kill ingrline work by Michigan was expec ted by the 30,000 spectators that sur rounded the gridiron on Marshall field. But the contrary was the case. Trick plays almost invariably were gnsuc cessful. Eckersall, whose remarkable powers were expected to at least score for Chicago had only one drop kick and this was unsuccessful. Michigan's concerted offense when hurled against the Chicago line failed to produce expected results and the fight for the honor of the western foot ball championship early resolved itself into a punting game between Ecker sall of Chicago and Garrells of Michi gan, but with this unexpected differ ence. Michigan failed utterly to gain consistently against Chicago defense, while Chicago, whose line has yielded to the attacks of nearly every team that had played Chicago this season, not only held against the heavy line plays of Michigan, but gained much more ground than did Michigan on straight football. Part of this was due to the disqualification for slugging in the first half of Curtis, the star tackle of Michigan, for Eckersall, quick to observe the consequent weak ness in Michigan's defense, instructed the majority of the Maroons' line plays against Patrick, who took Curtis' place. Outside of all this, however, Chi cago plainly outplayed Michigan and the maize and blue for the first time in five years was defeated. The ball was in the air a great deal of the time. Frequently both Chicago and Michigan punted on the down, although this was resorted to more fre quently by Michigan than by Chicago, and in this punting duel Garrels did the kicking for Michigan and had none the worst of it. His punts averaged fully as many yards as the long spirals of the brilliant Chicago quarterback and were high, enough to allow the Michigan ends to get down the fell. But Chicago made more distance on straight football than dl. Michigan. POWERS MAY BACK DOWN IN THEIR DEMANDS ON SULTAN [By Associated Press] London, Nov. 30.-While in official' circles in London it is admitted that the powers do not expect the sultan to yield as the result of the occupa tion of Metyline, it was stated today that plans for the next step had not been definitely arranged, the other powers awaiting the British proposals. The foreign office informed the As sociated Press that the British govern ment does not know exactly the ex tent of coercion which the other pow ers are willing to employ, but it is certain that none of the power~ is In the second half this figured in the I lay that resulted in the only points scored.

HAMILTON IS FOUND Insurance Lobbyist Undecided as to Whether He Will Leave Paris and Return to America. [By Associated Press] Paris, Nov. 30.-The correspondent of the Associated Press today located Andrew Hamilton, who was confiden tial legislative representative in the insurance committee at Albany, and had a half hour's talk with him con cerning his plans and his answer to the request of the .Armstrong insur ance committee that he give orders to his agents in New York to surrender his papers to the committee and he go to New York to testify. He said: "I am preparing a reply to the re quest of the committees which will be sent when completed to President Mc Call of the New York Life Insurance company."

The government has received infor mation from Sofia, through official sources, that the Macedonian commit tee has issued what is practically an ultimatum that unless the demonstra tion of the powers shall be carried to a successful issue the revolutionaries are prepared to announce that they intend to create a situation which will be certain to result in a war between Turkey and Bulgaria. MARKS 'I 0CH FO SRAEL Jews Celebrate j.iAnniversary of Landing ins America. CITABLE MENARE PRESENT 1dress b?.Grover . lveland and Sig. .nficant Letter frtn Roosevelt. [By Associated Press] New York, Nov. 80.-In celebration of the 250th anniversary of the landing of the Jews in America a meeting was held in Carnegie hall today. Addresses were delivered by former President Grover Cleveland, Governor Frank W. Higgins of New York, Mayor McClel lan of New York City, Bishop CoadJui tor David Greer of the New York dio cese of the Protestant Episcopal church, Mayor Sulberger, and the Rev erend Doctor H. Pereiramends. President Roosevelt, who was un able to attend, sent a significant let ter, *hicli was read to thb great audf ence. Vice President Fairbanks tele graphed his regrets and an apprecla' tion of the Jewish character. The speech of Cleveland was the principal address. Cleveland's Speech. Mr. Cleveland said: "Among the large enterprises and ulidertakings which have become fam iliar to the people of the United States there may be mentioned the extrava gant celebration, especially in these latter days, of all sorts of anniversar ies and events. Many of these un doubtedly tend to the improvement and stimulation of patriotic sentiment. But there is good reason to believe that others have no better justification than the indulgence of local pride or the furtherance of narrow and selfish interests. "We join today in 'the celebration of the two hundred and fiftieth anni versary of the settlement of the Jews in the United States.' This event created such an important epoch in our country's development, and its rela tionship to our nation's evolution is so clearly seen in the light of present conditions, that every thoughtful American citizen must recognize the fitness and usefulness of its commem oration. To those of the Jewish faith it recalls a foothold gained that meant for them a home and peaceful security, after centuries of homelessness and ruthless persecution. To those of us professing a different religious faith it brings to mind the landing upon our soil of an element of population whose wonderful increase and marked traits of character have added a pow erful factor to our national progress and achievement. All nationalities have contributed to the composite pop ulation of the United States, many of them in greater number than the Jews. And yet I believe that it can be safely claimed that few, if any, of those con tributing nationalities have directly and indirectly been more influential in giving shape and direction to the Americanism of today. "What our Jewish fellow citizens have done to increase the material ad. vancement of the United States is ap parent on every hand and must stand confessed. But the best and highest Americanism is something more than materialistic. Its spirit, which should make it imperishable and immortal, exists in its patriotic aspirations and exalting traditions. On this highoe plane of our nationality and in the at mosphere of ennobling sentiment we also feel the touch of Jewish relation ship. If the discovery of Americl prophesied the coming of our nation and fixed the place of its birth, let ui not forget that Columbus on his voy sre in search of a new world was aid &in a most important way by Jewish support and comradeship. Patriotic and Loyal Citizens. "If the people of the United States ,g.iry in their free institutions as the crdw. of man's aspiration for self-gov erment, let them not be unmindful of the fact that the Jews among us have in their care and keeping the his tpry and traditions of an ancient Jew. ish commonwealth astonishingly like o~r own reiublic in its democracy and udntlying ntentioen. This anolent 6om2Mifdaihlth was oebiA.a.. bflti _6d for the government of his chosen pso pie; and we should not close our minds to a conception of the coin cidence in divine purpose, discoverable in the bestowal of a similar plan of rule, after thousands of years, upon' the people of the United Sta:es, who also had their beginning in willing sub mission to God's sovereignty and the assertion of freedom in his worship. When with true American enthusiasm and pride we recall the story of the war for our independence and rejoice in the indomitable courage and fortitude of our revolutionary heroes, we should not fail to remember how well the Jews of America performed their part in the struggle and how in every way they usefully and patriot ically supported the interests of their newly found home. Nor can we over look, if we are decently just, the valua ble aid cheerfully contributed by our Jewish fellow countrymen in every national emergency that has since overtaken us. They gave convincing evidence of their assimilation with the best sentiment ofAmerican patriot ism by heartily joining in the popular acclaim that met the selection of Washington as the first president of our new republic. In support of this statement it certainly cannot be amiss to quote the following passages from a letter addressed to General Washing ton after his election to the presidency, by the Hebrew congregation in New port, Rhode Island: "'Deprived as we hitherto have been of the inalienable rights of free citi zens, we now, with a deep sense of gratitude to the Almighty Disposer of all events behold a government erected by the majesty of the people, a gov ernment which to bigotry gives no sanction, to persecution no assistance, but generously affording to all liberty of conscience and immunities of citi zenship, deeming everyone of whatever nation, tongue and language equal parts of the great government machine. "'This so ample and extensive feder al union, whose base is philanthropy, mutual confidence and public virtue, we cannot but acknowledge to be the work of the great God who rules in the armies of the heavens, and among the inhabitnts of the earth, doing whatever seemeth to Him good.' "These expressions, besides bearing on the hearty participation of our Jew ish fellow citizens in the patriotic sen timents of the time, illustrate how thoroughly they appreciated the new opportunities and the new security of fered to them by a free, just and pop ular government. "And thus it happened that the Jew ish immigrants who were driven to our colonies by religious persecution, and their descendants, have, under the kindly influence of toleration and equality, co-operated in nation building with those of different religious faiths, whose ancestors or they themselves had also sought amid hard and inhos pitable surroundings, freedom to wor ship God. - Jewish patriotism, which had been for centuries submerged and smothered in homeless wanderings and nationless existence, in the more cheerful light and warmth of a safe abiding place, sprung up and flourish. ed. It has been said: 'If you perse cute you make slaves; only by declar ing equal rights for all, will you make good citizens.' The rule that equality in right is essential to good citizen ship has never been better supported than by the result of according equal rights to the Jews who found a home on the soil of the United States. "I do not overlook the fact that the full enjoyment by the Jews of relig ious and industrial freedom was not without restraint or limitation at the time of their first arrival. Nor am I in the least inclined to claim that Jew ish characteristics or the Jewish religion are, or ever have been, abso lutely preventative of bad men and bad citizens. It cannot be denied, how ever, that with even the limited equal ity of rights at first accorded to the Jews by the American colonies, their loyalty and effective patriotism when needed were not wanting. "We have today only to look about us to discover that in every phase of present American enterprise and effort the Jews of the United States, with un restricted toleration and equality, are making their impress more and more deep and permanent upon our citizen ship. They accumulate wealth with out exhibiting or encouraging harmful extravagance and business reckless ness. They especially care for their poor, but-they do it sensibly and in a way that avoids pauper making. On every s~e are seen monuments of their charitable work and evidences of their determination to furnish their children and you'th equipment for use fulness and self-support. It is not among them that dangerous discontent and violent demonstrations against peace and order are hatch.. at fes tered. There may' be sometRt*l'of separatene eI.uitheir '.eId1 liffe! pected among those hbo are not alto gether free from the disposition born of persecution and the loss of nation ality to seekt in a common devotion to their peculiar religious creed the strongest bond of their social fellow ships. And yet, with it all, they are by no means laggard in the civic duty and the work in behalf of the general welfare of the state, which are the badges of good citizenship. "It is time for the unreserved ac knowledgement that the toleration and equal opportunity accorded to the Jews of the United States have been abun dantly repaid to us. And in making up the accounts, let us not omit to put to their credit the occasion pre sented to us through our concession to them of.toleration and. equality of strengthening by wholesome exercise the spirit of broad minded justice and consileration, which, as long as we are true to ourselves, we must inflexibly pronounce as the distinguishing and I saving trait of our nationality. No Place For Prejudice. "I kn)w teat human prejudice- es pecial;y that growing out of race or religion-is cruelly inveterate and lasting. But wherever in the world prejudice against the Jews still exists, there can be no place for it among the people of the United States, unless they are heedless of good faith, recre ant to the underlying principles of their free government and insensible to every pledge involved in our boasted equality or citizenship. "Roger Williams, the pioneer of religious liberty in America, expressed the fear, long before the United States became a nation, that England and the other nations had a score to pay to the Jews, and he added these words: 'I desire not the liberty to myself which I would not freely and impartially weigh out to all the consciences of the world beside.' Our nation will have no score to pay to the Jews. As a people we shall never suffer the humiliation of appealing to them for favors with the shamefacedness of in tolerance unforgotten and unforgiven. The Jews of the United States have be come our fellow citizens and, like us, have at heart the prosperity and safety of our common country, forasmuch as we have desired not that liberty to our selves which we would not freely and impartially weigh out to all the con sciences of the world beside. "After all, it comes to this: We celebrate an event in the history of our country fraught with important results deeply concerning us all as citizens of the United States. In the spirit of true Americanism let us all (Continued on Fourth Page) HIS NERVE GIVES OUT LIEUTENANT SCHMIDT SPEEDILY RAISES WHIT FLAG ON THE OTCHAKOFF.
