TheNebraskans Defeated Handily by^Butte's Champion Eieven.
NoSlugging. No Discord, But a^Clean Play From the Start-Lass-^well Scored th-i First Touch^Down-Few Accidents.
Yesterdayafternoon's football game^settled three questions that have been^occupying the public mind for several^days, and it is now fully settled that^the people of Butte will turn out to^week-day games almost as largely as^on Sundays and holidays; that the de^^parture of ^Big^ Jim Hooper has not^weikened the Butte team a particle,^and that the Butte giants are In every^way a better and stronger team than^that which represents the University^of Nebraska on the gridiron field. The^game was full of surprises, the great^^est of which was the comparative ease^with which the Buttes humbled the^proud Nebraskans, who are the Inter^^collegiate champions of Missouri, Kan^^sas, Nebraska and Iowa, In the decom^^posed granite. The visitors are looked^upon as the crack players of the Mid^^dle West, and their emphatic defeat^elevates the smoke-eaters still higher^on the ladder of fame, up which they^have steadily fought their way with^^out a single misstep or setback. It also^emphasizes the fact that the Butte team^As it now stands, Is one of the very^Strongest west of Chicago, and llutte^people will take a greatly increased^pride In It as a result of yesterday s^game. Its latest victory is in many re^^spects the greatest that it has ever^won, and it is a proud distinction to de^^feat the Nebrasltan giants by a score^of 1G to 6, which was the score In yes^^terday's conflict.
Thegame was In every respect the^best that has ever been played in Itutte^and the 2,000 or mure people who wit^^nessed It constituted an audience that^was as enthusiastic and delighted as^any that has ever attended a football^game anywhere In America. One of the^most pleasing features of the game^was that It was entirely free from^slugging and roujrli playing; that Is, in^the general acceptance of the latter^term as regards football. It was a^game In which gentlemen opposed gen^^tlemen, and there was no disposition^on either side to turn it into an Indis^^criminate prize fight or slugging^match. Both teams were Instructed by^tholr captains before the game com^^menced that there must be no slugging^and these Instructions were lived up to^with a unanimity that was as surpris^^ing as it was gratifying to the specta^^tors. There was not a single black eye^or bloody nose at the close of the^game, and while It Is true that four of^the players were so badly hurt that^they had to leave the field, their In^^juries were the result of hard work^and were not attended by even a sus^^picion of dirty work.
Onlyonce was there any apparent^desire to slug, and that was In the last^half when Captain Brooks received a^nasty smash In the face. Some of the^Buttes were anxious to retaliate In^kind but Brooks told them that the^blow he received was accidental, and^calmed the angry spirits. The Nebras^^kans were Intensely excited at the^time, *nd It Is possible that ithe blow^which Captain Brooks received was an^acoldent. Another gratifying feature^was the playing of W. T. Perham. the^new man from Portland, who played^left guard In place of Jim Hooper. He^filled the position of the auburn-haired^giant most acceptably and his work^made It oertaln that with a little more^practice with the team he will be a de^^cided Improvement on Hooper. He Is^fully as strong as the man whose place^he has taken and he runs faster and^plays harder than Hooper. He plays^so hard In fact that he has no time to^slug, which was one of Hooper's weak^points. Perham will most assuredly^do. Laswell, the other ex-Portland^playtr, played a wonderful game, and^the way he bucked the Nebraska line^every time he hit It, and he hit It eo^often that the Nebraskans grew sick^at heart every time they looked at him.^Brooks, played I more brilliant game^than usual and every man on the team^distinguished himself at one time or^another. The Putte line was the same^old stone wall and the visitors were^unable to move It to any extent. The^Interference of the [iuttes was not quite^up to their standard, but this was due^to the fact that they are practicing a^new style of interference and have not^fet got It quite perfect.
TheNebraskans played a hard, clean^And determined game, and every foot^of ground gained by the Buttes was^stubbornly contested. ^Wiggins,^ Fair^and Packard were the visitors who^particularly distinguished themselves^by clever work. The visitors made two^changes In their team as published^^C. L. Thomas, who captained the Oma-^has when they played here playing^right guard Instead of A. B. Jones, and^Kellar playing center In place of Dun-^gan.
A.B. Jones of Nebraska was um^^pire, J. V. Bonn of Butte was referee^and Wesley Warren of Butte and Tom^Pomeroy of Nebraska were the lines^^men For a wonder Butte won the^toss and Captain Brooks selected the^south goal. Kellar kicked off for Ne^^braska and sent the ball 40 yards^down the field where Brooks muffed^It. but got It tack five yards. Bu^e^failed to gain the seven yards on three^downs and rather than give up the^hall to Nebraska they gave ^he^m^20 yards and kept the pigskin. Lass-^well hit the center for five yards and^then dodged around the left end for^five yards more while they were lock^^ing for him through the center. Glllis^advanced the ball 15 yards on a criss^^cross from Brooks and Lasswell went^through the lien for two yards m^r-.^and followed It ud with a pretty 15-^yard run around Lbs left end. H^ was^given good Interference but was finally^tackled bv H. Jones. Butte lost five^yiris through Richards passing the^bill too high, ami failing to make the^required gain they again gave their^opponents .'o yards nd k^pt the ball.^Then they ^.!.^^- 1 like a cyclone for^a few minutes. Ellis gained eight^yards between W;is ^n and Shedd.^Glllis got the ball and mao^ a beauti^^ful 20-yard run around the left end.^He shook the doughty Thomas off as^though he were a flv. hu: w is tackled^hard by Thorpe. Brook* kept up tile^good work with a 15-yard run arvund^the other end. but it was claimed that^King was off side when the run was
madeand it was no go. Brooks re^^peated the idav and made four yards.^Lasswell followed M up with a 23-yard^run around the right end and then^bucked the center for Ave yards more.^Smith gained live yards between the^left guard and tackle and Lasswell^wont six feet through the line. Butte^lost the ball 01 a fumble and Nebraska^did the same a moment later. Lasswell^lni iked the center twice for 10 yards^and the next time he struck the line^he hit it with such terrltlc forve that^he broke cle ir through It and when^the astonished Nebraskans looked^around he w is 10 yards nw.iv and run^^ning for their gi^al like a frightened^deer. Pursuit was useless, and Fair,^the full back, who was the only man^In his way, was cleverly dodged. He^ran 35 yards and scored the first touch^^down amid lusty cheering in 20 min^^utes' of actual play. King sent^the ball between the posts and the^score stood 6-0 In Butte's favor.
Fiveminutes later Brooks scored the^second touoh-down after a 60-yard run,^which was the prettiest and longest^run of the game. The giant Perham^carried the captain through the line^and he did the rest. Whlppls and^Fair gave him a hard chase, but he^let himself out a few notches and^quickly left them hopelessly In the^rear. King again kicked the goal,^making the score 12-0.
Kellaragain kicked off and when^the ball was downed It was 40 yards^nearer the Butte goal. Glllis got the^ball on a criss-cross from Brooks and^^hot arourd the left end In superb^style fur 20 yards. Chut Smith broke^through the center for 15 yards and^Brooks ran 40 yards around the left^end before he was tackled by Thorpe.^Nebraska got the ball on three downs^and was making futile efforts to get^through the Butte line when the first^half closed. King kleued off at the^opening of the second half and Wig^^gins carried the ball baok to wltMn 20^yards of center. The Nebraskas were^determined to score In this half and^they secured their only goal after 10^minutes of uh| hardest kind of work.^Wiggins ran around the left end for 20^yards before he was tackled by King^and a moment later he gained 25 yards^around the left end before Smith fell^on him. Jones advanced the hall 15^yards more around the left end and^when Glllis tackled him he was on^Butte's five-yard 1 In-. Wilson wss car^^ried acros the line In a series of ru-hes^and Shedd kicked ithe goal, making^the score 12-8.
Theball tlmn passed back and forth^several [lines with Bmall ga:ns on bmth^sides. After several minutes of slg-^BiJ playing Liw.vell. Ellis and Slater^advanced the ball 20 yards through^the center In a succession of rushes.^Lasswell then changed his 'tactics and^pan around the left end for 15 yards,^which gain was .iiilnkly followed by^a 20-yard run by GilHs. A series of^rushes by Glllis. Laswfll and Slater^carried the ball 15 yards further and^Brooks ran around the right end for^25 yards. He was given great inter^^ference and downed the ball only a^yard from Nebraska's line. Laswell^carried the ball across with a center^buck. King missed the goal and the^score Atood 16 to g against Nebraska.^Time was called a few minutes later^with the ball near the center. Chet^Smith. Butte's great right end, was^compelled to retire through slofcness^In the second half and Wilbur Boyce^took his place and put up a strong^game. Hayward and Bhewe of Ne^^braska were also knocked out m the^last half.
TheNebsssteans took their defeat^very grace-fully and spoke of the vic^^tory In the kindest and highest terms.^Hayward, the Nebraska right tackle,^who played bis third game Against the^Buttes to-day, said this evening that^the Butte team play* as fair and gen^^tlemanly a game as any team In the^ooirntry. Captain Wilson expressed the^same ^^ntlments, and said that he^wo'ild not lose an opportunity to deny^the reports that have been circulated^In the East that the Buttes are slug^^gers. The game was well bandied and^everything passed off smoothly, Which^was largely due to the work of Man^^ager Stivers,

Thelabor question Intruded Itself^into the meeting of the llu'teolty coun^^cil last evening. H was r -presented la^a communication from t'.ie Working-^mens' assembly that the spirit of the^rule adopted some years ago. that no^employe of the city should receive less^than $3 a day, is berng violated. The^street sprinkling contractor, while pay^^ing 13 a day to Us men, is given a re^^bate of 12 per day. The communication,^which was signed by the officers of^tin* Workingmebs' assembly, K. of L.^and the Silver How Trades and Labor^assembly, was placed on file. The com^^munication was as follows:
Webelieve that In the spirit of the^resolution recorded in Book 21, Page^443, for May 21, 1S90. and on Page 464,^In Book 2 for June 25, 18K0, It was In^^tended that all men employed directly^or lndlreotly In any capacity for the^city of Butte, should receive a compen^^sation of $3 per day; and feeling that^an arrangement whereby an employe^rex-elves S3 per day for his labor and is^required to pay 12 a day to his employ^^er In return for board, has prevailed^between the party to a contract with^the city to do the street sprinkling for^1895 and his employes; or that an ar^^rangement such as prevailed In 1894 be^^tween the contractor with the city and^Charles Hart, whereby the employes^received $3 per day from the contract^^ors for work, and paid Mr. Hart II^per day for board, being obliged to^board with Mr. Hart, and Mr. Hart^paid a rebate of (14 per month to the^contractors, on each man's board, while^the contractors employed more nun^than were required by the team'', thus^Increasing the amount of revenue from^the rebate and correspondingly de^^creasing the revenue to the laborer,^hardly or fairly meets the spirits and^requirements of the aforesaid resolu^^tion, and deeming the spirit of the^aforesaid resolution good and wise to^be observed, which we hope It Is the^desir.-, as it Is undoubtedly the duty^of the council to secure Its observ^^ance.
Thereforewe, the undersigned, ven^^ture to give you this Information and^would respectfully petition your honor^^able body that for the future no con^^tracts be awarded to do the sprinkling,^butthat the work be ^Mfofiuid h^' ^ona^Hde residents of the city and by day's^work instead, and that an ordinance^to this effect be adopted by your hon^^orable body.
Therewas also a little kirk on the^labor question that came up when a^contract for constructing the sewer on^East Broadway from Covert street to^Lee avenue was let to John McCrlm-^mon. Mr. MoCrlmmon was the only^bidder, and he offered to construct the^S40 feet, according to the terms of the^contract, for 1*00, the work to be com^^pleted by Nov. 5. This contract was^awarded, but Alderman Byrne suggest^^ed that a very close watch be kept on^this sewer work, to see that the spirit^of the $3-^-^ay resolution be not violat^^ed as, he said, it had been In former^contracts.
Acommunication was received from^P. A. Gabel and 26 other residents,^protesting Against the granting of a^franchise to the street railway com^^pany for traoks west of Missoula^gulch, unless they shall extend their^Granite street line north on Excelsior^avenue to Caledonia street and west^on California street to Emmet avenue.^This was referred to the Judiciary^committee.
J.D. Thomas complained of the bad^condition of the Buffalo gulch sewer^under Nos 43, 45 and 47 West Park^street. He said the sewer Is very det^^rimental to the basement of his build^^ing. He asker that the city arch the^sewer with brick In this portion as in^the main part of the sewer. Referred^to the sewer committee.
Apetition from W. A. Clark and oth^^ers asking that the established grade^be lowered one and one-half feet at the^northwest corner of QffMtfts. and Mon^^tana streets and one foot at the south^side of the alley in the rear of said^block on Montana street, was referred^to the street and alley committee.
MayorThompson presented hi* report^for the mnnth of 8eptenil^^r, which was^read air.nl fllej. It Is as fol.ows: ^I here^^with respectfully submit to your honor-^ahle body my report for the mointh of^Septemtnc, 1S95, containing the receipts^and disbursement* and a comparative^sta'temint of the IJ^e month of 1^S4, show^^ing the tpcrva-se an I d^or.a.se of the sev^^eral funds.

ch]Attorney Hamilton reported re^^garding the cabin In the alley north of^(Iranite street that the cubln had no^right there; that the ( cupant of the^^ it.In had no legal right either to ths^cabin or the land It Is on, but that It^would cost something m tegil fMMti^lugs to oust him. and I thought It^better to make an amicable settlement^with Mr. O'lirien. He said Mr. O'Brien^was w illing U. settle on receiving a fair^coinp: nsaion for his cahln. The may^^or was authorized to settle with Mr.^O'ltrlen.
Anordinance authorizing the pur^^chase for tr.OO worth of ground on the^Krankle lode claim for the purpose of^widening Montana street at Its south^^ern end was read and referred to ths^Judiciary committee.
Anordinance granting a franchise to^the street railway company toff a double^track on Arizona street from Mercury^to Park streets, a single track on the^same street from Park to Broadway,^and a single track on Broadway from^Arizona to Wyoming, was read and re^^ferred to the Judiciary committee. This^is the ordinance necessary to remove^the tracks of the street railway com^^pany from the objectionable Wyoming^street to Arizona street. The company^In a communication which was read^after the franchise had been read,^agrees by Dec 1 to vacate entirely the^present line on Wyoming street from^Broadway to Mercury and on Mercury^from Wyoming to Arizona. The old^franchise on Arizona street has been^forfeited by failure to run cars on It,^and It Is necessary to grant a new^franchise for Arizona street before the^tracks cm Wyoming can be torn up.
AldermanMontgomery suggested^that the prostitutes be removed from^Wyoming street and that the chief of^police be Instructed to do this. This^was referred to th- polies committee.^The council then adjourned to next^Wednesday evening.
