Chicago, Nov 10.—Football in the middle west reached its climax today when the elevens of Minnesota and Chicago universities lined up on Mar shall Field. With neither eleven having a game scheduled with Michi .gan or Wisconsin, no championship claims were possible from result, but the prospect of seeing "reformed" football In its highest development by the swift back field of Chicago, and the tremendously Ivavy line of Min nesota, drew record-breaking crowds to the field. Minnesota had an enormous advant age in wtight, her lipesmen averag ing 194 pounds to 1S2 for Chicago, while in the back field the advantage was still more pronounced. Minne sota's back field averaged 1771-2 pounds to 1S6 for Chicago, but this advantage which would have been overwhelming under the old rules, Chicago was confident of more thaf overcoming by superior speed, and from Eckersail and Steffen, especial ly, at least two touch 'downs and a drop kick were looked for. In prac tice during the last three days, Eck ersail had been making 75 per cent of his tries at field goals, and if the Chicago line held sufficiently to pro tect him, the little quarter back was figured by Maroon adherents as sure to bring victory to his team with his kicking, if touch downs could net be made through the Minnesota wall. Neither Coach Stagg nor Dr. Williams save out his line-up until shortly be fore the game was called. 3 P. M.—The score at the end of the first half was 4 to 0 in favor of Min nesota.

CARL LUEGER IS REPORTED AS Notorious Jew-Baiter, Burgo master of Vienna, is Near ing the End. A•—elated Press Cable to The Evnlig Vienna, Nov. 10.—Dr. Carl Lueger, the notorious Jew-baiter and for fif teen years past burgomaster of Vienna, is reported to bo dying. He has long been suffering from a com plication of diseases, but recently his condition was rendered more critical as a result of an Injury he received in mountain climbing. The death of Dr. Lueger would re move from the field of Austrian poli tics its most picturesque figure and one who has contributed more to the political turmoil in the dual monarchy during the past two decades than any other one person. Ten years ago his power was such that it was seriously stated that he would overturn the monarchy and found a patriarchal gov ernment, with himself as chief pat riarch. Of late years he has somewhat declined in prominence, though bio anti-Semitic propensities -have- shown no abatement. Lueger perhaps does not dislike the Jews any more than he does the Aus trlans, and his violent anti-Semite policy probably was a mere pretence to catch the votes of the people. He tried all sorts of experiments before he became a success In politics. As a student he fought vigorously for the Roman Catholic clerics and got him self disliked for it. His clerical pat rons then advised him to become a lawyer. He followed the advice, turned against them, and talked freedom, anti-capitalism and socialism to the people. Finding that denunciation of the priests and socialism did. not win with the people, he raised the cry of "Down with the Jews," not because of their religion, but because of their financial supremacy. This policy, he found, immensely pleased not only the people, but the rich Austrians, too, and even his old friends, the clergy. Lueger mixed with the poor, preached anti Semitism to them, won their hearts, and was secretly sympathized with by the wealthy but narrow-minded com mercial classes, who disliked to open ly avow their antipathy to the Jews. As a result of the popularity and support he thus gained Dr. Leuger has managed to retain the burgomaster ship year after year. LIBERTY TREE PLANTED. Associated Press to The EtcbIbk Tlaies.
