CHICAGO, Nov. 27.—Tommy Ryan, who now claims Chicago as his home, de feated Kid Carter of Brooklyn in. six rounds at Tattersall's tonight before a crowd of 5,000 people. Ryan had the best of the milling all the way with the. exception of two intervals in the first and second rounds, when Carter sent, him to the mat with right swings. Carter was beaten fearfully about the head and face and, aUhouna he went the limit, he fought the last three rounds without knowing much about what he was doing except that there was a. man in front of him, whom he had to hit. He fought gamely to the last and his superior weight and strength was a very heavy handicap to Ryan. The latter, how ever, was much too clever for Carter and got inside nearly eveijr swing he male and blocked three out of five blows that were sent to his body. George Siler awarded the prize to Ryan amid loud cheers from the crowd, the applause being fully as much for the game boy from Brooklyn as for the vic tor. Ryan entered the ring at 10:10 and wait ed eight minutes for Carter who did not appear until 10:27. When Carter took his seat Ryan noticed his hands were bound tightly with bandages. He at once offered objection, saying that he did not mind Carter's keeping bandages. around his hand, but lie wished them removed from the knuckles. Ryan car ried his point, Referee Siler ordering Carter to wind bandages around the lower portion of his hand. In Ryan's corner were Billy Stift. Billy Ryan and Bob Long, Carter being attended by Tommy Sullivan, Johnny Reagan and Bob Dillon. The match was at 158 pounds, the men weighing in at C o'clock. Both were under weight, although Car ter had several pounds the best of it when he entered the ring. Before the fight began it was announced that on Dec. 13, Joe Gans and Terry McGovern would meet in Tattersall's, the men to weigh 130 pounds at 7 o'clock. The' match is to be under straight Queens bery rules, Cans agreeing to stop Mc- Govern inside of six rounds or forfeit the decision. • FIGHT BY ROUNDS. Round One—Shook bands at 10:15.

LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 27.—Twenty-one Nebraska university football players are in training for the game on Thanksgiv ing day with the University of Minnesota team. Realizing that the odds are heavily against his team as regards weight. Coach Booth intends to play two men to every position save one in the coming contest, and each of the twenty-one who are now being prepared for it will be given an opportunity to take part In the contest. The fact that the substitutes are so numerous and so uniformly good makes the Nebraska supporters -confi dent that their team will. successfully defend the goal line, which has not been crossed this season. They are also en couraged by the comparative scores the two teams rolled up against Grinnell and Ames - colleges, . Nebraska securing a larger score against both than did Min nesota. - The struggle Thursday will show the open . game against close formations. Coach Booth, with a light team, has de veloped tactics of the former class ex clusively, and expects the speed of his men will enable them to hold their own against the Gophers, who weigh twenty seven pounds heavier to the man. The "Bug-eaters" commenced secret practice tonight, and the time from now on will be spent mainly In developing some spe cial plays. Manager Wlckershani. of the Minnesota team, was In the city Satur day, and. at his request university field has been covered deeply with straw, to prevent the ground from freezing.

DENVER, Nov. Benny Yanger,. the Topton Slasher, of Chicago, and Young Corbett, of Denver, fought a ten-round draw before the Colorado Athletic asso ciation tonight. The decision^ was very unpopular, and Referee Jack McKenna was hissed by the entire" crowd as he left the ring. Corbett floored Yanger seven times during j the fight, and waa himself knocked down more than once. In the eighth round Yanger .went to the floor from a right swing on the jaw and got up very groggy. Corbett went in to fin ish his man,- and put him down four times more, each time for eight seconds, but he was .himself so tired -*4__.t he could not land hard enough or he could have knocked Yanger out. Yanger regained his strength by the time the ninth be gan, and fought hard, though his blows lacked strength. With te exception of the eighth round, in which Corbett had all the best of it, it was an even thing, both being very tired at the finish, as the result of their hard fight.

The new rules, edited by Luther Gulick, for the season of ■' 1900-1901 -'.*•' have ■ several changes. The most important change lfl in what is known: as, the 7 "dribble rule.". The new rule reads as follows: _"*"' "A man may touch the ball with both hands but once;; it makes no '. difference at what point this '; using both hands comes. He may catch it with both hands, then dribble it with, one hand, but cannot touch :it with both hands again until some one else has : played It. Or he must get the ball with one hand and dribble It a ways, and then take it with both hands and throw it In drib bling with one hand there is nothing to prevent the hands being used alternately. The ball must be played by another play er; touching him is not sufficient The principle Is that he can take it with both hands but once In a single play. Thl3 does- not interfere : with his throwing for goal twice or more iin succession, even if no other player touches in between times. The player who dribbles the ball cannot throw for goal until the ball has been played by another player. The um pire shall call a foul for violation of this rule." ~X-~- . Under last season's rule a player was allowed to shoot for the goal after hav ing dribbled -the ball, so long as" he caught it with both hands. This has been changed, the new rule prohibiting the throwing for goal by a player after having just completed dribbling the ball. This change is directly in line with all the changes that have been made In the rules during the . past. two seasons, j j all with the object oi making the game more open, to eliminate individual playing, with its consequent roughness as much as possible and to 3 promote that most Important feature of the game— play. "n* '-X ■ --7 -7 There Is no question but. what the amendment is a gqoi one and a step in the right direction. It will ! take gfast work and the very best team play to profit by the dribbling tactics according to the rule now. in force. *" FITZ MAY FIGHT AGAIN. .-. T._:i f.. - • Will Give Some'ot Tkem n Chance Next- Spring?. TORONTO. Ont., Nov. Robert Fitz simmons, the actor-pugilist, is ap pearing at the opera house here this week," announced today that he would re consider his determination to retire from the ring. . "Fitz" says that at the end of his present theatrical season he will give some of his present challengers an opportunity to measure skill with him within the roped circle. This announcement will come a3 a great surprise, for since his decisive "defeats of Ruhlin and Sharkey and Jeffries' re fusal to meet him. within a week after the latter battle, "Lanky Bob" has de clared his intention of quitting the game for good. He asserted that advancing age must sometime tell, and that • since Jeffries, the only- man who ever defeated him, would not fight, there was no sense in his risking : defeat, again to accommo date some ambitious fighter. As soon as "Fitz". announced his retirement he was hounded by challenges, the most persist ent of which was from Champion Jef fries. Therefore It is probable "Fitz" will take on the champion, and Cincin nati may be the scene of battle. Fitzsimmons ' relates an interesting story concerning Champion Jeffries' latest chal lenge to him. He declares that Manager Brady approached him with the sugges tion that the match be made for adver tising purposes., alone. It was to be dropped when the theatrical "season closed. "Fitz" says he refused to have anything to do with such a scheme. - LIVELY GAME IN SIGHT. Central and Ist. Paul Play - Football . Tomorrow. The Central high school football team of this city expects as, hard a game as it has had this season when it meets St. Paul Central high tomorrow morning. -The local eleven is undefeated this year, while St. Paul lias been beaten by only cne eleven of its class, .the Dcs Moines high school. The only learn-which both schools* have played is the university. Central tied the collegians, while St. Paul was defeated 26 to 0. St: Paul, however, played the 'varsity one week later than Central, and at the beginning of the season one week sometimes means, much in the de velopment of a team. 7 Last year's game. between these schools was close and exciting, being won by Central 11 to 0, and as St. Paul has about as many old men as Central, the game tomorrow is expected to be a fast one. The two teams have been rivals for years, and there is considerable feeling over the game. George Belden will be one official and Pudge Heffelfinger. will prob ably be asked to officiate also. - The game will be played at Northrup field and will be called at 10:30. SIX-HAY' RACE.

These three * were Secretary Canfield, who was detained because of sickness; Senator Gauzewitz, who had to leave the city after he had come to at tend the meeting, and W. P. Ewert, of Sauk Rapids. Gov. .*: Lind was present at the meeting and stated his unwilling ness to contest the election of Van Sant. There was nothing new In the position of the governor, for he has from the first been opposed to the contest and has so declared himself upon every " occasion when he was asked for an expression of his sentiments or to accede to the re quest. " -'-- Gov. Llnd arrived at the conference shortly after it had begun and entered fully into a discussion of the conditions Incident to the contest proposition. . He was at the meeting probably half an hour and his determination was express ed plainly to the committee. After the governor left 5 the rooms the committee remained in session for about, an hour, but adjourned without deciding upon anything definite as regards what action will ultimately be taken in the contest proceeding. The only decisive step taken was in the form of a resolution to hold a meeting of the committee, Dec. 21, at which time the situation will be gona over fully; for the final disposition of the case and a definite conclusion arrived at as to whether or not the contest shall be held. - Pending this meeting of the executive committee, Chairman Rosing will com municate with the members *of the gen eral comittee of the state, either by cor respondence or otherwise I for the pur pose of getting their opinions. In view of the stand taken by Gov. Lind tho committee does not feel warranted '.. in proceeding . with the matter without the full sense of the state central commit tee, - embracing a member from each county; neither is its mind fully made up to drop the case where it is. -With the sense of the general committee and the information that will be available 'from the official returns of the state examin ing cot-- ittee, which meets Dec. 18, the executive committee feels that it will have all the guidance It needs, in the di rection of its further and ultimate course. The decision of Gov. Lind, which has been, recognized from the first, but only formally given yesterday, leaves no doubt in the committee's mind as to what may be expected from the man most Intimately, associated with any thought of a contest and whom they be lieve has been personally wronged by the election returns. As to what the sense of the committee at large will be, no one can at present indicate or even surmise, neither is there any grounds for presuming that Gov. Lind can be prevailed upon to change th*"-- determination which he expressed yesterday, and yet there Is not conclu sive evidence at hand to warrant tho deduction that there will be no contest. The committee, it has been known, waa originally strongly in favor of the contest and if their position will have been alter ed, it will, perhaps, be due to the stand taken by the governor/but the members of the executive committee represented by Chairman Rosing, have given out no statement that would justify the in ference "that the mind of the committee at large will be changed, neither did they suggest or intimate that it will not alter its former position. It is quite certain that the matter re main-, where it was. before the meeting of the committee, so far as the com mittee is concerned. Gov. Lind, of course, has made a definite statement of his position so that no further question is patent along that line. * ._*; * The speakership kaleidoscope has. been given another twist and in the confusion of candidates the little particles | that obscure the vision of the deluded spec tator seem to cluster in bunches around the head of Al Ferris, of Brainerd..

A letter was recently writ ten by the Crow Wing man, it Is stated, in- which he reannounced his support, of Laybourn in terms that could not bs misunderstood. - Laybourn therefore had not the slightest doubt of Ferris' stay ing out of the fight himself and re maining his steadfast supporter, but It is certain that no-such confidence dwells in the mind of the man from the Zenith City now. Laybourn and Ferris canont both be In the race; that much Is certain. The man, therefore, who is the stronger, will take the field, providing the programme is compiled with and the weaker one will get out. This was. the sense of the lit tle confab yesterday, but it is not known to have met the entire satisfaction of Mr. Laybourn. The latter is in the raca to stay, he declares. Mr. Ferris posi tively declined to f-ay whether he would be a candidate, but stated that It may be depended on that when the proper time comes there will be but one candi date from the Sixth district. That man, the majority § believe, ' will be Ferris, despite his former declarations, It will be Ferris, not because he is so anxious for the place, but simply because ho will be the stronger of the two men. That Is, of course, the opinion of those who claim to be best informed how. Lay. bourn may later develop, remarkable strength that he does not seem to have at present. Ferris, if he runs for the place, will, it is generally conceded, be able to lay Berg in the shade, and that is what nearly all the party, save that little ring, that clings in parasitical fashion to the skirts of the adminietra ' tion-to-be, wants. Ferris will bo a strong man In his own district and will no doubt, accomplish wonders, in the Seventh, where Berg has lived for only five months. -■While the other three candidates are squabbling over the bone Mike Dowling may come along and carry It off. Dowl ing is still a potent factor In tho fight and has something up his sleeve that nobody has yet seen. Election expense lists still continue to come in at the office of County Auditor Johnson, though slowly. The largest- in amount filed yesterday was .that of Peter Metzdorf, county treasurer-elect. The campaign cost him $56525, of which $225 was given to the. : central and ward committees. Judges Kelly and Brill, despite the fact that they had no opposition, managed to spend a little, the latter $121 and the former $120. These amounts were divided equally between the central committees of the two great parties. Dr. A. W. Miller distributed $220. No less than $100 of this amount was placed in advertising and cards. ' George. H. Leuders, candidate for rep resentative, and Walter Nelson, also an aspirant for a representativeshlp, let go of $72 and $116 respectively.; For livery alone Mr. Nelson separated himself from $35.* .-*.■.. 7 ■:' --'- Frank Ford, In his race for the office of probate judge, says he spent $125.50.
