Thirty Don Their Moleskins for
Preliminary Stunts at
Handling the Ball
With thirty men on the field for the
first practice of the season, football
opened at Occidental college yester
day. Coach Wieman putting his men
through the usual preliminary work
of passing and handling the ball. Thd
college has never had more promising
material. Of the new men, Bradbeer
is undoubtedly of varsity caliber. He
Is the holder of the Southern Califor
nia record in the 440-yard dash and Is
a heady player.
The Stoltz brothers, freshmen, show
themselves' to be fast, with lots of
ginger. Tad Jones of Pasadena is re
solved to make the varsity and is into
the game for all he is wortn. Fiefleld,
a stalwart youth from Los Angeles
high, is looked upon as a good man
for the line.
The Tigers have one cub so large
that there was not a suit In stock that
would fit him. McNary is the lad's
name. He cornea from Occidental
academy with a fine record as guard.
He has been training all summer and

Cromwell urged the students to get

Morvic was decisively whipped tonight
by Monte Attell, the former's seconds
throwing up the sponge In the seventh
of a scheduled twenty-round fight.
Morvic was game to the core, was
floored several times and took the
count of nine, coming back each time
for more. While Attell had hardly a
mark, Morvic was badly beaten.
Much discussion has been aroused
among the fans of San Bernardino be
cause of an opinion printed in The
Herald regarding the merits of a third
bunted strike, and The Herald takes
this occasion to correct its former
statement in regard to that particular
play. The move in question was
whether a man bunting at the third
strike, the ball getting away from the
catcher, was safe at first, all the time
a runner holding down second.
According to the opinion advanced
by The Herald, the runner was out
for bunting on third strike. This
opinion was given after talking with
the Coast league scorer and Henry
Berry. However, Umpire Eugene Mc-
Greevy holds that the runner' was
safe, and a careful diagnosis of the
play causes others interested to agree
with him. Therefore, this occasion
Is taken to take back the first opfrtlon
and substitute one declaring the run
ner safe.

Champion Sprinter Will* Be Op
posed to Riders of Rec
ognized Ability
One of the principal competitors at
Sunday's bike races at Fiesta park
will be Iver Lawson, the fastest bicy
cle sprint rider the world ever pro
duced. In 1904 he won the world's
professional championship for Ameri
ca on the Crystal Palace track, Lon
don, defeating the riders of ten dif
ferent nations who gathered there to
defend tho titles of their respective
countries. Lawson has Just arrived
from Salt Lake, where he raced with
great success during the past sum
mer. One of his hardest competitors
was Gordon Walker of Australia, who
also has arrived in Los Angeles to
compete in Sunday's races.
Walker is one of Australia's greatest
riders. While Lawson won a few more
races during the past summer than
Walker, the latter's friends are still
willing to back him against the al
most invincible champion, and the fans
who attend Sunday's races should be
furnished enough excitement when
these two stars meet to pay them for
coming, even without tho many other
interesting events which will be on the
Another attraction will be the pro
fessional motor-paced match bicycle
race to be run In two best out of three
heats bstween Ray Duer of Buffalo,
who holds all the motor-paced world's
records from one to ten miles, and
Harvey Wilcox, the young profession
al from Salt Lake, who Is prominent
for his great riding In the annual six
day and night races in Madison Square
garden. This should be a great race,
not only because two such stars of tho
banked saucer will compete, but they
will be paced by two of the greatest
motor riders In America, W. E. Whit
tier of Salt Lake and Hubert Kittle,
who turned professional at the last
motor races on the Coliseum here, and
since has won many big events on the
new Salt Lake motordrome.
Another good event will be a match
motorcycle race between Al Ward and
M. J. Graves, who last month won
the ten mile national championship nn
the Point Breeze track, Philadelphia.
There will also be amateur bicycle
races on the program.

professionals who have entered to date:

Regulars and National Guards
men Examine Ground for Prac
tice Battle at Atascadero
[Associated Press]
first day of the four weeks of army
maneuvers which began today at Camp
Atascadero under Brig. Gen. Tasker H.
Bliss was spent by the regulars in
camp and by many of the officers in
familiarizing themselves with the topo
graphy of the country over which the
field operations will take place.
In many respects the meneuvers and
field movements of the regular troops
and the national guards of California,
Arizona and New Mexico will be more
extended in scope this time and more
difficult in the problems involved than
were the field operations two years ago.
Sixteen officers have been detailed as
umpires to observe the operations of
the troops and to render decisions in
the game of war between the red and
the blue forces. Each officer will be
placed In command of larger bodies of
troops in the field than is afforded him
opportunity at any of the army posts.
The manner in which they acquit them
selves will be decided by the umpires
and by the commander-in-chief and
his chief of staff, Maj. W. M. Wright.
Today was pay day in camp, an event
in which the troops take great in
terest. Mayor E. J. Smith, paymaster,
and Fred Foster, paymaster's clerk,
began this morning the work of paying
off 1600 regulars now in camp. By to
morrow night about $40,000 wil have
been disbursed.
Tomorrow morning the troops will
take to the field for the first opera
tions of the present maneuvers. The
infantry will bo given problems of
attack and defense which will extend
over the rolling ground In the south
ern part of the reservation, which
comprises the big maneuver field. The
evolutions and tactical movements will
be by battalions which probably will
be supported by machine gun 'platoons.
The cavalry will operate in squadron
formation, while the artillery, signal
corps and other branches of the ser
vice will have special instruction dur
ing the flay.
The first of the national guard will
reach camp tomorrow, when eight com
panies of the territorial troops of Ari
zona will arrive on two special trains.
Major F. R. Day of the thirtieth In
fantry, commanding Fort Mason at
San Francisco, has been detailed .is
coach to tho Arizona militia, with the
title of "inspector Instructor."
An effort is being made to interest
some of the amateur aviators In the
state in making areoplane flights at
Camp Atascadero to demonstrate, the
practicability of aeroplanes for mili
tary purposes. As the war department
has failed to grant the request for a
detachment from the army aerial corps,
with aeroplane or dirigible, and as
there is no appropriation available for
such experiments by the army, the
only chance of making such experi
ments here lies In the hope that some
of the ambitious California aviators
will volunteer their services.
MIDDLKTOWN, N. V., Sept. 15.—The
federal census reports received here
this week showed that apparently this
city had gained only 791 in population
during the test' ten years. There waa
great dissatisfaction over this showing,
as many citizens were convinced that
the increase in population had been
several thousand.
The explanation came today when
the announcement was published that
the census takers of 1900 had counted
as part of the city's population the in

Three of Four Lawmakers Under
Indictment Renominated
CHICAGO, Sept. 15.—The so-called
Lorlmer Democrats won In large num
bers at today's primary.
Three of the four lawmakers now
under Indictment on charges connected
with the election of Lorimer were
"The pumpkin" system is said to be
largely accountable for this result. By
this system, where there were three
candidates two of them might be ig
nored and the entire trio of votes cast
for one. Representatives of the reform
sources declared the outlook is not so
dismal from their viewpoint as might
at first appear. They say enough seats
had been won to Indicate the next
house would be under different control
from that which ruled when Lorimer
was elected to the senate.
Among those renominated are Lee
O'Nell Browne, the Democratic leader
recently acquitted in Cook county of
charges of bribery, but against whom
there is another Indictment at Spring
field. Senator John Broderick, also in
dicted on a charge of bribery at Spring
field, was renominated. Similar honor
was given Robert E. Wilson, who is
charged with perjury Inconnection with

Joseph S. Clark, another of the repre
sentatives indicted at Springfield, ap
parently was defeated.
Republican Adherents of Governor
Returned in Primaries
SPRINGFIELD, 111., Sept. 15.—One
of the bitterest battles in the political
history of central Illinois today result
ed in a victory for friends of Governor
Deneen, over the supporters of Senator
R. M. Sullivan, the Lorimer repre
sentative in this senatorial district,
was defeated for urecinct committee
man in his own precinct and thus
forced out of the organization by Chris
Unger, Deneen candidate.
State Senator Logan Hay. Deneen
Republican for renomlnatlon to the
ptate senate, was overwhelmingly re
nominated over former Alderman Law
rence Flynn.
Representative J. F. Morris, Demo
cratic member of .'he legislature, who
voted for Lorimer, was renominated.
Governor's Candidates Win All
Nominations but One
DENVER, Sept. 16.—Adherents of
Governor John F. Shafroth, who last
night secured his renomination in the
Democratic state convention here by
the scant official plurality of 27 votes,
today finished their work by bringing
about the nomination of practically
the entire Shafroth slate.
The big Denver delegation, with 284
votes out of 1100, was unable to stem
the Shafroth tide except late tonight,
when it assisted in selecting Alex
Davidson of Salida county as candi
date for state railroad commissioner.
Every other candidate supported by
the Denver men was defeated.
Opposition among the women of
Denver county to the renomination of
Mrs. Katherine M. Cook as state su
perintendent of public instruction also
went amiss, while another plan of the
women to nominate a woman for sec
retary of state failed even more dis

PROVO, Utah, Sept. 15.—State-wide
prohibition was put forward by the
Democrats of Utah as a paramount
issue at their state convention today.
They refused to ask for a prohibitory
amendment to the constitution, al
though a considerable minority favored
that course, but Inserted a strong plank
in tho platform pledging the party to
an anti-liquor law.
The fight waxed warm at times, but
the dry delegates mustered a large
majority on the final vote.
Ferdinand Erickson of Mount Pleas
ant was nominated for congressman
and O. C. Richards of Ogden for the
supremo bench.
The convention rejected a plank call
ing for a public utilities commission,
which was advocated by friends of
railroad regulation.

Boston Physician Uses Refined
Process in General Practice
BOSTON, Mass., Sept. 15.—Inocula
tion for typhoid fever is one of the
latest contributions of the medical pro
fession to a world of disease and suf
fering. For several years the Royal
Army corps has been able to produce
artificial Immunity against typhoid
fever among British soldiers, but a
Boston physician has refined the pror
cess and demonstrated its value in
general practice as well as in special
Voluntary inoculation carried out at
the Massachusetts general hospital
during the last eighteen months by
Dr Lesley Spoonor at the suggestion
and with the assistance of Dr. Mark
W. Richardson, secretary of the state
board of health, have resulted in con
firming the experiences of the army
doctors of Great Britain.
"In my opinion, 1 said Dr. Spooner,
"the development of this means of
prophylaxis is a very important step
in the fight against typhoid.
"As you know, the Massachusetts
general hospital is one in which equip
ment is of the best and where every
precaution against the spread of dis
ease is taken, so that an incidence of
typhoid there has even greater signi
ficance than it has elsewhere. Yet in
spite of all precautions, in ten years
—from 1899 to 1908—there were con
tracted within the hospital, apparent
ly from direct or indirect contact,
twenty-seven cases of typhoid fever.
"In April, 1909, I began inoculating
volunteers, first among the house of
ficers and then among the nurses and
ward tenders. In all cases the blood
showed a distinct reaction, a reaction
so marked that it seemed very doubt
ful that immunity was not conveyed.
The roHults were so encouraging that
we continued with the work, and up
to the present time have inoculated
one hundred nurses, nine house of
ficers and six ward tenders at the
Massachusetts general hospital and
fourteen employes at the Naval hos
pital at Chelsea.
"I have found that the physical dis
comfort to the inoculated is far less
marked when inoculations are per
formed with small doses repeated at
frequent intervals. Severe reactions,
I think, are due to the administration
of tremendous doses of the organism.
"Our experiments show that the se
verity of the .reaction bears no direct
relation to the degree of immunity
conveyed. The greater number of those
showing the higher agglutinating pow
er—that is, the condition in the blood
which shows immunization—suffered
only slight local an 1 no constitutional
reaction. On the other hand, several
with smaller amounts of agglutinins
complained of greater disturbances.
"The only case resembling typhoid
among the employos of the hospital
since we started inoculating occurred
last month. That was a nurse who had
been Inoculated. But she presented
such very mild symptoms that the di
agnosis is at present still in doubt.
Her illness was no more severe than
an ordinary cold, and if it is typhoid
it is significant only as confirming
our belief that Inoculation gives a
reasonable amount of immunity with
out absolutely preventing the disease.
"Many persons intending to travel
abroad now come to me for inocula
tion. I have made approximately 500
Inoculations up to date, and 1 think I
can say with perfect freedom that
there is no danger, but slight incon
venience and every indication of im
munity. It is too early yet, however,
to say how strong the immunity is or
how long it will last."
Declares Creed Stands for Apply
ing Old Moralities to
Today's Conditions
(Associated Press)
. OYSTER BAY, N. V.. Sept. 16.—
Theodore Roosevelt said today that ho
is not talking revolution in declaring
his now political creed. Neither is lie
making an appeal to mob rule.
In a stanch defense of his doctrine
of the "new nationalism" he declared
he was merely urging- the application
of old moralities to modern conditions.
At the same time, he replied with
spirit to those who have been opposing
him, and hotly denounced newspapers
which, he said, attacked honest public
Colonel Roosevelt's address was de
livered at the Suffolk county fair at
Riverhead, L. I. He rode about 120
miles in an -utomobile to and from
Riverhead, and spoke to a great crowd
on the fair grounds.
The colonel's exposition of "new na
tionalism" came at the close of a
speech in which he also denounced dis
honest corporations, dishonest men of
wealth and political bosses. He made
no .reference to the New York state po
litical situation. 0
"I have noticed a good deal of com
ment on my speech on new national
ism," he said. "All that new nation
alism means is the application of cer
tain old-time moralities to the changed
conditions of the day.
"I wish to see greater governmental
efficiency, because we have to deal with
a greater business efficiency. Simple
laws are all that are necessary In small
communities, when there Is no big busi
ness and each man works for himself.
When you get masses of wealth gath
ered together and great corporations
developing, conditions then become so
changed that there must be an Increasa
in governmental activity to control the
wealth for business efficiency.
"I would not do any wrong to the
great corporations, but I don't intend
to rely only on the big corporations'
good nature to see that the corporation
does not do harm against us. 1 want
to see such control of the wealth now
gathered for business uses as to favor
the honest man who uses the weahh
genuinely for the service of the public,
and to make the dishonest man feel
that he has to do what is right; «and
if he does not feel it, we shall see to
It that he does.
"That is my whole creed. That is all
there is in it.
"There is no revolution in It. There
is no appeal to mob rule.
"On the contrary I recognize mob '
violence as an enemy of the public
good, just as much as lav/less wealth.
I am against the poor man who is
guilty " of the crime S of lawless vio
lence, and when It is in my power I
shall try to punish him for his mis
deeds Just as whenever I have the
power I will join with those that see
to it that the corrupt man of wealth, -
Is good—not because he likes It, i but
because he has to be."
CoL Roosevelt spoke with even, more
than customary earnestness. . His
words were received with cheers. •
"I now want to speak to you as
citizens in the great problems that
concern all of us. I think every citi
zen of a free democracy ought to dis
trust above all others the public man
whose deeds do not square with his ■
"That has two sides. It has to do
with the politician who makes promises
that he does not keep, and it has to do
with newspapers that say what they
know is not true.
"There are two prime difficulties in
getting good government. One arises
from the dishonest politician. I think
the corrupt politician no worse ", an j
enemy of the people than the man who
lie 3 about the honest public servant. •
"The corrupt politician is no worse
than that corrupt politician's mainstay,
the newspaper, which says what is not
true about men in public life. Honesty,
truth, courage—you need them just as
much in public as In private life."
In concluding his speech he urged
greater respect for manual labor. ■
