A Miueapolls, Minn., dispatch says:
Nearly ten thousand people gathered
at Northrop field Oct. la tosco tlic
eleven gopher giants win from Ne
braska ono of the hnrdest contests ever
wen ou the local gridiron. Through
out at least two-thirds of the giuuu
Lincoln men were on the defensive,
and the manner in which they stood
up at the onlnughts of the gophers
brought feelings of pride to every Ne-bratd-ati
on the grounds. '
The- score was decisive, 10 to 0. Hut
one reason for the defeat wns offered
by cither members of the team or
coaches, the superior weight of the
northerners. Like the famous team
of 1000, which cast consternation over
thousands of people in Lincoln nearly
a year ago, the prcsunt tenia Is composed-of
Minnesota's scoring cninc slowly. It
was not until the Nebraskans were
hammered to pieces that the home
team began to work the heavy close
formation plays effectively. The first
touchdown came one minute and fifty
eight seconds before the call of time in
first half, the remaining two which
were added in tins second half came
about fifteen minutes apart, the last
one being made the minutes before
time was called. The gophers also
made a safety In the first half, caused
by disastrous fumble within thrco
yards of Nebraska's goal line. Knowl
ton kicked two goals.

An Albany, New York, special says:
Superintendent Cornelius V. Collins
will send a request to Secretary of
State Hay to designate nn ufllrlal of
tho government to bo present tit Jho
elect mention of Leon F. Colgosr, tho
mtudcrcr of 1'rcsident McKinlcy. Only
twenty -b1x witnesses will be psescnt in
the chamber of death when the sen
tome is executed. Warden Mead of
Auburn prison has scut to Superin
tendent Collins tho requests he has re
ceived for permission to attend the
electrocution, over 1,000 In tilt. The
law will limit the uumlcr of witness
es, and the snpcrlntendcnt will decide
who the. witnesses shall be.
It was stated at the state depart
ment of prisons that statements to the
effect that Colgosz Is in a continuous
state of collapse and Hint he breaks
down and weeps every time anything
is said to him concerning the electro
cution nrc false. Superintendent Col
lins had u talk with the condemned
man some days ago, anil at that time
ho said he knew how to die. He ex
pressed no fear ns to the electrocution,
but said that he would not care to go
out side of the prison, for ho believed
thnt the people would kill him.
Since his confinement in Auburn
prison several thousand letters have
been received for him at the prison, ns
well as a largo number of express
puckages containing flowers and fruit.
The letters, flowers and fruit have
never reached the condemned man.
Tho flowers and fruit, It is learned,
have been scut by Christian societies,
as have a number of letters consoling
him iti his last moments. Other let
ters have come from cranks who have
written about the species of torture to
which they would put him if they had
the execution of justice In his case.
It Is stated, however, thnt it would
be a mutter of surprise if the names of
senders of fruit and flowers were made
The state prison department has
pursued a uniform policy in regard to
Colgosz. An effort has been made to
prevent tho murderer from gaining
any notoriety while awaiting death
and U surround him by us perfect an
isolation from the world as possible.

Certain I'vldcnrc Other "News
Of tlri'xt Iniporintire.
An Albany, N. Y., dispatch snys:
lloland It. .Molineux, convicted of tho
murder of Knto II. Admits in New York
city, has been granted a new trial by
tho court of appeals.
Tho court wns unanimous In agree
ing for a reversal of the Judgment of
conviction on the ground that thu trial
court erred In icelvlng evidence of
the declarations of llarrel, mtido to
Dts. Phlllpps und Douglas, that he had
received thu ktttnow powders through
the mull. After summarizing the
theory of the ptosectttlon that the
murder of Mrs. Adams was thu result
of a plan devised by the defendant to
kill Cornish by means of a rare and
deadly poison concealed in a powder
lu common use as a remedy for trilling
ailments the court sttys:
"Throughout the length und breadth
of the testimony relating to the death
of llurnet them is not a suggestion to
a fact which throws any light upon
the intent with which the poison wns
sent to Cornish, or which setves to
support or strengthen the Inferences
us to intent which may be drawn from
tho evidence tending t show that the
defendant sent the poison to Cornish.'
Further on the court says:
''Assuming llarnet to have been killed
by tho defendant, tho crime hits Its
own separate motive, intent and plan.
ThlB is equally true of the crime
charged in thu indictment. The mere
fact that the two crlmcN are parcllcl
as to the methods and means em
ployed In tho execution does not serve
to identify the defendant as the poison
er of Mrs. Adams unless his guilt of
the latter crime may bu inferred from
its similarity to the former. Such an
Inference might Iks Justified If it had
leeu shown conclusively thnt the de
fendant had killed Unmet nnd that no
other person could havo killed Mrs.
Adams. Hut no evidence was given.
The evidence tended to show that thu
defendant had the knowledge, skill and
material to produce tint poison which
was sent to Cornish. Hut he wus not
shown to be the only person possessed
of thin know ledge, skill nnd material.
Indeed, it is common knowledge thnt
there uro many such olsonb. There
fore, thu naked similarity of these
crimes proves nothing,"
