Ryan's Cleverness More Than Offset
Carter's Superior Weight and _
Strength—Carter Fought
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
Ryan entered the ring at 10:10 and wait

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.

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

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'

Villi Play Open Game Against Min
nesota— Many Substitutes.
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

Had the t Beat of It.
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.

Is the Bloat Important Change—Text
of the New "Dribble Rule" a*
:"/;'.; Revised by Luther
Gulick. :
.--..._ ■ •-■-,-.■■
With the golf an?! football season draw
ing to a close the attention of athletes
is now drawn to the popular basketball
game, which holds' the fort during the
winter season in the indoor arena. 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

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

to the rule now. in force.

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. -
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.

There was a meeting of the Democratic
state executive committee at the head
quarters yesterday, at which Chairman
Rosing and all save three members were
present. 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.

A clump of Republican, politicians
gathered in various quarters of the city
yesterday, the Merchants* hotel being
the scene of their most important con

others were there. There was a - secret
conference between Messrs. Ferris and
Laybourn, to which none but the per
sonal advisers. and most intimate friends
of each were admitted. Upon the re
sult of that conference, of which : but
a small part is revealed to the public,

The Minnesota State Medical Institute,
Corner Fifth and Robert Streets, St* Paul*
for the Layboum ferces. Ferris, it is
generally known, had recognized his obli
gations to Mr. Laybourn for the latter's
support in sending him to the national
convention at Philadelphia and his
promise to do all in his power for the
Duluthlan when the time came to elect
a speaker. 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

Election expense lists still continue to

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. '

Catarrh of Lungs Cured.
Mrs. M. Mlhln, S7 South Robert street,
says: "For two years I suffered , untold
agonies from catarrh of the nose, throat
and lungs. One doctor pronounced my
case consumption, I tried everything 'that
was recommended to me without receiv
ing any benefit. However, at last I went
to the Minnesota State Medical Institute
and the doctors there told me they could
cure me. I was skeptical at first but in a
short time I was so much better I had to
believe, and today I am a well woman.
I can -now do my housework without
tiring and feel like a new woman.. I
cannot recommend , these Doctors too
highly to any one." -
Strain From Lifting.
For over twenty years I have been a
