HANGED MAN RESUSCITATED. A Negro Supposisl to Be Dead is Said to Be Alive. ' Montgomery, Ala., Nov. 20. A special from Tuskegee, Ala., says: Last Firdny a negro named Henry Dawson was hanged here for murder by the sheriff. He was a large, 200-poundor and when the trap was sprung, fell so hard he almost broke the rope. Fifteen minutes after the fall ho was cut down ii ml the physicians pronounced him to be dead from strangulation. His body was tumid over to his friends for burial, who put it in a large, black cotlin, start ed with it in a wagon for the Buchanan place several miles distant, where they pronounced the benediction. A negro named Beiiben Uice now comes forward with the statement that Dawson is not dead: that as soon as the wagon was outside of town the lid of the collin was pried off and whisky and other restoratives applied, with the result that the supposed corpse was re suscitated, and after an hour or two was recovered sufficiently to walk. The evi dence as to the truth of the statement is that the negroes having the remains in charge have left the neighborhood, and no evidence of a new grave can be found about the Buchanan place.

PENNSYLVANIA DEFEATED COR NELL BOYS BY A SCORE OF 32 TO 10. Ill GAME PLAYED III CHICAGO In Which the University of Chicago De feated the University of Michigan Boston Athletic Club Defeated By Chicago Athletic Club. Philadelphia, Nov. 20. Pennsylvania, 32; Cornell, 10. The Pennsylvania font trail eleven wound up the season of 1890 by playing pretty much the same kind of a game as she has done all along, at times brilliant, while at other times it would have put to shame a lot of school boys. Cornell played a brilliant game through out. With the exception of Bassford at quarter then play was of the most per fect, and bad it not been for the fact that tb- ttain was so much lighter than the red and blue there would not have been 32 points scored againt them. There were few attempts at tricks by either side. The interference oi the Cornell team was nlwuys up to the standard, which partially accounted for the brill iant dashes by Beach and McKeever. It was due almost entirely to the mag nificent playing of Cornell's back field that both of their touch downs were made. By steady plunges in the out line and an occasional run around the ends. McKeever, Ritchie and Beach got the ball over the red and blue goal line twice. Thost- players seemed to be nil over the field at the snme time, and the playing of J-.ee and Taussig on the ends was also in illinnr. iney got aown un- icr kicks umarkiiblc fast and tackled ike funds.

University of Chicago Eleven Bent the University of Michigan. Chicago, Nov. 20. In the big building in which, five months ago, Sir. Bryan was nominated for the presidency, 13,- 000 cheering footbnll enthusiasts saw the eleven of the University of Chicago defeat the strong eleven of the Univer sity in one of the most desperately con tested games ever played in Chicago, the final score being 7 to 0. The result was surprise to everybody. Although the Chicago eleven professed he utmost confidence in winning, yet there was no such confidence by their importers, who at best looked for them to hold their opponents down to a small score. To Horsdibergcr, Chicago's full back, belongs the honor of winning the game, fits punting was one ot tne ton- ures and his goal from the held, kicked from the 40-yard line, went cleanly between the goal posts. He easily out- lassed Hogg, the Ann Harbor full back. and time and again his long kicks saved is team. Chicago could do but little ith Michigan's line, most of her gains leing on end plays, in which she dis- Iaycd splendid interference, or by the kicking of HorsohlH-rgcr. Hnmil nnd 1 irtli, the Chicago ends, both distinguished themselves by sonic cry pretty tackles. On the Michigan side, Pingree, in the first half, was the whole thing," the plucky little follow seldom failing to make the required dis tance. He was. however, forced to re- ire in the second half, his pluce being taken by Herbert, who was equally of- ctive. Michigan made frequent use of the famous Princeton tackle and guard ack plays, which were very effective. cry few tricks, however, were resorted to by either side, both relying on straight, hard football. One thing at least was settled by the game, and that is that in door football is a success. The weather outside was wet and windy, but the shel tering walls of the big Coliseum protect ed the plnyors and the crowd, nnd the game was played on a -field that was ideal in its fooling. The noise was sim ply terrific. Every mother's son and daughter seemed to lie possessed of a tin horn and a determination to blow its mouthpiece through the roofs. College ells and songs of all kinds were start- d up with or without provocation nnd at times the piny had to be stopped on nccount ot the lmihility of the players to ear tne signals. Ihe line up was as follows: Chicago Position Michigan Firth Left End Farnheim Mortimer Left Tackle Villa Webb Left Guard Carr Cavanaugh Center . . . .Wombacher iooker Right Guard Bennett Roby Right Tackle Ilenninger Inmil Right End Greenlenf lark Quarterback Herbert iardner. .. .Lett Half Back .Pingree oy Right Hilf Back Calley Hogg Ilerschborger. .Full Buck . .

Two thousand people witnessed the de feat of the Galveston Royals at the bands of the San Antonio eleven, at Beach park, this evening by a score of to 0. 'Ihe weather was fine and the gridiron elastic. Both sides played a luggisn game, devoid of brilliant ploys or special features. The Galveston team's ignorance of the rules lost them the game on the quarter back kick in the brst half, and the game see-sawed from this to the finish without incident of note. It happened in this way: Quarter back Van Howard of San An tonio took Left End Elskaridge's place in left end, (smitn taking Howards place, and Elskaridge dropped behind Smith. Smith kicks on a fluke, and Els karidge runs forword. grabs the ball and rushes to Galveston goal, scoring 4, hile the Galveston team stands bewil dered. Smith kicked a goal nnd settled the story of the game. VIRGINIA TEAM WON. Richmond, Vn.. Nov. 20.

They Want the Military Withdrawn From the LcadvHIc Minos. Leadville. Col., Nov. 20.-Tho Cloud City Miners' Union has issued an address to Governor Melutyre and to the people of Colorado which attempts to show that a conspiracy exists among the mine own ers for the purpose of keeping the state troops in Leadville until tho union is dis organized. The miners disclaim respon sibility for the Coronado aud other out rages that have occurred here uud offer to guard property nnd aid in maintaining peace if the tioops are withdrawn. The address says: "The presence of tho militia iu Lead ville so far will cost the people of the Btate some $200,000. Every day that they remain here will add something over $2000 to this sum. and it must all be paid from tuxes. Will the state further lend its aid to such tremendous cost to destroy and crush organized labor to assist one class of citizens, strong and powerful, against another class of citi zens, weak and humble in comparison .' The miners are ready and willing to restrain nnd consider any reasonable proposition looking toward a settlement. They will meet the operators in a spirit of fairness and justice. They can not, of course, and ought not to consent to the destruction ot the union, for that is the bulwark of their safety. It stands between respectable labor life and tramn life. "Neither can they consent to perform their hard and exhaustive labor under ground, its constant hardships and face its ma n i fold dungers for less wages than will supply them with the necessities of life. "These two things are nil they demand. !l they ask is the right of the union. the right for themselves, to live." TEXAS CONFERENCE. Bastrop, Tex., Nov. 27.

They were to furnish the oratory and help win the Hoosier state for Bryan. I visited Chi cago before the Fort Worth convention. Hon. Mark Ilanna urged me to accept the state chairmanship. I refused, say ing that I was not a politician. Mr. Ilanna insisted and finally toll me that if I would accept the position the nn- linitnl '.nt.,,,,!.., ,.-..1,1 S.. - t to conduct a vigorous campaign. We talked the mutter over nnd I reconsid ered on the promise that an experienced politician from the north would be sent along.

Huston was agreed upon hv Mr. lliiiinii nnd n i?iiitlimnn high iii the councils of the republican party whoso mime 1 shall not make pub- of this gentleman, who is his personal and political friend. ThiagH looked shaky in Indiana and we decided that a red hot and aggressive campaign in Texas would force Messrs. Baily, Hogg & Co. to remain nt homo, and also force the na tional democratic committee to send a big campaign fund to the state. The plan was successful. We spent $30,000 in Texas, and made it so interesting for tho silver democrats that they kept ont of Indiana. The fact is, we assisted the Texas democrats to 'pull the log' of Chairman J. K. Jones." "Did Jones' committee send a cam paign fund into Texas?" "Mark Ilanna told me that ho under stood $100,000 was sot aside for Texas in order to keen tho state from f.-illinc into the hands of tho republicans. Oui crent fight was made in Texas so o for the purpose of compelling democra to keen their heavy guns at home and to compel Senator Jones and his com mittee to divide up their campaign funds instead of concentrating the cash iu the doubtful state of Indiana. We were successful. Huston came to .Texas at my request. He was recommended by two of the greatest republican leaders of tho country, nnd our sole object was known only to Ilanna, Huston and'mr self." "What about the Grant-Huston letter, Mr. Green?" "When I nccepted the state chairman ship nt Fort Worth, I stated that I wai a worker, not a talker. I make the sanif reply to the question you have propound ed. 'I am n worker, and not a talker.' " "About federal patronage; what have you to say about this very important party issue?" "In my opinion two important consular appointments will fall to Texans. Of course, I can not anticipate the lucky ones." Chnirmnn Green declined to discuss the Grant-Huston episode. However, he bluntly stated that Gon. Huston was his friend, nnd that he assumed all re sponsibility for his presence in Texas during the campaign. Speaking of Chas. Hedges ho said: "Hodges is in Washington city in charge of tho arrangements for the inaugural ball. His futher and Senator John Sher man fire olnso frionHn tf thn nAiMin elect and no doubt Mr. Hedges will have smooth sailing after March 4, 1897." He intimated to the reporter that at least throe contests had been decided upon in Texas. He declines to name the districts, but it is understood that Slny don, Henry nnd Cooper will be compelled to fight to retain seats in the next con gress. MISSOURI'S COMPLETE VOTE.
