BIG GAME MONDAY.
The Second Team of the Minnesota U. to Play
the A. C. Monday Afternoon.
Probably the best football game of
the season in Fargo will be played at
Broadway Park Monday afternoon be
tween the second team of the Univer
sity of Minnesota and the North Da
kota Agricultural College. There was
some difference regarding the choice of
officials, Coach Williams of the uni
versity team insisting on acting as um
pire, a thing unusual in the ethics of
college athletics. But with Minnesota
it was Coach Williams for umpire or
game, so the local management gave in.
Dr. Wheeler will probably referee. The
gophers are after revenge for the de
feat sustained by them two years ago,
when they were compelled to return to
Minneapolis with the score
against them. 1
he second team is said
to have scored quite frequently upon
the first team this year and it looks
like the A. C. boys are up against a
hard proposition. The locals are in
fairly good shape with the exception
!«f Rose, whose ankle bothers him con
siderably. The ,A. C. boys expect to
hold the score down low. They have
?iot been scored upon since
•have shown up well this'year against
a number of teams. There seems good
reason to believe the boys will give a
good account of themselves and the
y.- surprise will not be great if the Min
nesota boys are sent home a second
time with a defeat to accompany them.
Pn account of the numerous subs that
will accompany the university team and
i£he distance, the expense of the game
will be great. However, it has been de
cided to place the admission fee at

The Fargo H-igh School football
team with Coach Burd and subs left on

where this afternoon a game is being

The High School is stronger than us

a good game. Having defeated Fargo
College the first game of the Season by
a good sized score and then Fergus
Falls and the Grajid Forks High
School team the local boys are feeling
their oats. They have not had a game
for sometime, however, and this may
work to their disadvantage. They are
greatly outweighed by the normal boys,

An Official Talte,
At the regular meeting of the city
council, on next Monday night, H. C.
Sickler of Wilkesbarre, Pa., a heavy
stockholder and one of the chief pro
moters, and Fred MorjiJl, local attor
ney of the Fargo & Moorhead Street
Railway Co., will appear before the
board and ask for an extension of time
in which to complete the road. In con
ference with Mayor Sweet, yesterday,
they suggested Aug. 1 as the probable
date of the extension proposed.
Th Forum interviewed a number of
members of the city council this morn
ing regarding the proposed extension
of the franchise and there seems to be
little or no opposition to the request.
In speaking of the matter this morn
ing one member of the municipal fam
ily said: "I don't see that the city has
anything, to lose by a little generosity
in this matter. The«genthemen who are
at present at the head of the street
car company are acting in good faith
and I am satisfied if they are given
the opportunity that they will go ahead,
and complete and operate the road.
They have displayed the railroad com
pany's receipts for the shipment of sev
en cars of steel rails, which were load
ed on Oc!t.

With the showing the company has
made we could not declare this money

the company cannot complete and have

then, if we cared to pose as the modern
