Cannon , a most esteemed person , were
serving as volunteers with the rankE

penalty of death , among other reasons
because they were not military per
sonages in the actual service of Ze
laya. A similar crime of Zelaya 1ms
never been witnessed in the historj
of Central America. "

Protecting Americans There.
Washington , Nov. 26. The revolu
tion In Nicaragua Is spreading In the
opinion of Captain Shipley , comman
der of the United States cruiser DCS
Molnes which Is off coast of Nicara
gua. The revolutionary forces are
reported to be maintaining an effec
tive blockade and are patrolling off
Greytown with two gunboats. Assur
ance was given that American inter
ests are being protected. These are
Important facts contained In n cable
gram received at the navy depart
ment from the commander of the Des
Molnes at Port Limon. On Novem
ber 23 the revolutionary gunboats fir-
cd on Greytown , but without effect.
The revolutionary forces now have
possession of the back country of Nic
aragua including Rnma , where fight
ing is likely to occur. An officer from
the Des Molnes landed at Greytown
but found only ono American citizen.
The state department was advised
by the Western Union Telegraph com
pany that during the present inter
ruption to the telegraph lines in Nic
aragua and Costa Rica , it Is possible
to handle some of the traffic by wire
less via Colon but the service Is not
continuous and there was no com
munication between Tuesday and
Thursday. This accounts for diffi
culty the department Is experiencing
in its efforts to reach Its diplomatic
and consular officials at Central
American ports. Renewed efforts are
being made to reach these officials.
Washington , Nov. 26. Greco and
Canno , the two Americans executed bj
order of President Zolaya of Nicaragua
last week , held commissions In the
Insurgent army , according to advlcet
received here from Bluefields , where
the revolutionist government Is locat
ed. The dispatch stated that the
state department of the United States
had been notified to this effect.
The state department has been enx
lous to clear up the point whether the
two men had commissions or were
merely acting In their Individual ca
paclttos , for In the former event thej
would have been entitled to treatment
as prisoners of war.

The shooting of Mrs. Daniels and

West Virginia. The Christians lived
In Mlngo county , W. Va. , and the Dan

weeks ago , George Christian ventured

were brothers-in-law and had formerly

Supreme Court Triumph Will Popular
ize the Administration.
Washington , Nov. 26. Dissolution of
the Standard Oil company , If sustained
by the supreme court , will do mpre
than any other one thing to set the
administration forward on a career of
popularity , according to the prevailing
That such an event would Imme
diately send to oblivion what Is still
remembered of the tariff struggle Is a
foregone conclusion , and friends of the
president are already looking forward
to the creation of a public sentiment
ns a result of the prosecution of the
trust that will at least enable the re
publican party to'present at the next
congressional elections an unbroken
Much In this direction had been
hoped from the sugar Investigations ,
though as that has turned Into more
of a cleaning out of government em
ployes than n prosecution of the sugar
trust Itself , some misgivings were felt.
In one direction , at least , the admin
istration undoubtedly will gain much
strength from the successful termina
tion of the Standard Oil appeal. That
will be In pushing before congress the
president's program for corporation
control. The winning of this case be
fore the supreme court Is expected to
guarantee not only the sincerity , but
the ability of the administration In Its
efforts to put further restraints around
the corporations. It will vastly weak
en the arguments of those who main
tain that the machinery of the govern
ment Is already too cumbersome to
Inquiry today among responsible of
ficials of the administration disclosed
the fact that the question of criminal
prosecution of the Standard Oil men
named as Individual defendants in the
dissolution suit had not yet been
brought up officially , although it has
not escaped the attention of the ad
ministration that such a result might
follow a successful termination of the
pending case. It is learned that no
definite line of action Is likely to be
determined until after the decision on
appeal to the supreme court. In case
the opinion of the circuit court Is ftf-
firmed the question of criminal prose
cutions will then come up for decision
by the administration.
The question is also affected to some
extent by the question raised In the
sugar trust prosecution through the
decision of Judge Holt In New York
dismissing the case against Gustavo
Kissel on the ground that the statute
of limitations had run. That case Is
about to bo appealed by the govern
ment , and the decision of the supreme
court may have a bearing upon what
shall be done with the Standard Oil
men. The government will contend
that although the original act In violation
lation of the Sherman law by the sugar
trust may have been outlawed , the
violation was In fact a continuing of
fense and that each act of the trust
in furtherance of the conspiracy con
stituted a now offense.
There are points of difference , how
ever , between the sugar trust case and
that of tlia Standard Oil. The opinion
of Judge Stillborn repeatedly declares
that the seven named defendants
"have been and are" committing "tho
Illegal act , " thus bringing the violation
of the law right down to date. The
question of criminal prosecution would
await the final adjudication by the supreme
premo court , however , regardless of
the question of limitations , because of
the unwillingness of the government
to undertake n criminal case while
there was still n chance that the equity
proceedings might foil.
If the Injunction case Is successful
In the supreme court , however , the
probability today Is that-criminal
cases will bo Instituted against such
of the seven Individuals ns are then
within reach of the courts. One of
the seven , Henry H. Rogers , has died
since the equity proceedings were be
gun , In November , three years ago.

Harvard Quarter Back Couldn't Re

what the matter was with O'Flaherty.

Captain Fish tried to have him leave
the game. "I'm all right , Ham , " said
O'Flnherty , and he refused to leave the
game. When Dr. Nichols ran out
onto the field , the first thing OFlaher-
ty said was "I am all right. "
Tlie doctor questioned him during
the game. The questions were in the
way of a test to see how the Harvard
quarter back's mind was acting.
"What day Is It ? " asked the doctor ,
and O'Flaherty could not tell htm.
That was enough to have caused
Coach llaughton to have him removed.
Wlgglesworth was eager to go on and

THROUGH WITH FRISCO.
California "Shorts" Talked Too Much
for Stanley Ketchel.
New York , Nov. 26. Stanley Kot-

That Is what "Steve" Is quoted as
saying the day before he left the
western burg for Los Angeles. "I
would rather fight for $1,000 in the
east than for $5,000 out here. The
"shorts" our here talk too much. They
have ruined my reputation complete
ly , and think because I won a few
fights out here that they own me. Let
them match other fighters for this
point In the future.
"I'm off for Los Angeles for a go
with Jim Flynn. After I win over
Flynn I'm going to New Orleans to
pick up a little change , and from there
I'll go east nnd take on either Sam
Langford or the winner of the Kauf
man-O'Brien fight. "
Pretty strong talk from quiet , bash
ful "Stove , " Isn't It ? Ever since Wil-
lus Brltt died It seems that tongues
have been wagging out there about
Ketchel'H behavior. He admits that
he fell , badly over the loss ot his lit
tle manager , but declares that he did
nothing foolish In the line of cafe
pranks , ns they had said.
Being a thin skinned gent , "Stove"
couldn't stand it nnd told the above
to three newspaper men In a cafe
Jiist before he slammed the door and
shook the dust off his heels forever ,
, Sporting writers out here say that
, "Stevo" Is an Ingrate. They say that
'Frisco mndo him welter , middle and
light heavy weight champion of the
world. They say that 'Frisco should
bo the last place he should knock
and if It had not been for their gen
eroslty he wouldn't have a cushion tc
sit on , let alone an auto.
"Stove" has his own ideas , how
ever. He has gone with his buzz wag
on for the south.

university's football team and coach
of the Ilnskell Indians this season , has
come Into the rank of first magnitude
football coaches , as a result of the vic
tory over King Cole's men of Bender's
nlma mater yesterday. As a result ,
Bender today Is the happiest man in
the Missouri valley.
That Nebraska will make an effort
to get his services as coach next sea
son , to replace Cole who has fallen
down , seems now Inevitable.
The showing of the Indians will hnvo
to be attributed to the coach. They
have been second raters In the valley
since 1904 , but all this season they
have been giving promise of a great
deal of strength. Owing to the can
celling of two or three of their games
after the accident resulting In the
death of Spybuck they have been de
veloping In the dark for the past
month and the Denver game was the
first hint of their real progress.
The team that Bender took to Lin
coln Is light , averaging about 160
pounds , with the back field still light
er , only about 156. But they are the
fastest , trickiest team that the big In
dian school has turned out In years.
In the palmy days they did not know
any more football or got away with
their formations with the speed that
they use this year. They have been
pulling off passes of every description ,
slnglo , double , delayed , brilliant fakes
and end runs with whirlwind rapidity.
This style of game simply took the
heavy semi-professional team at Den
ver off their feet , nnd In spite of the
high altitude , Bonder's men were In as
good physical condition after the con
test as were the mountaineers.
Bender has some real stars on his
eleven this year , and critics are In
clined to concede to him the best punt
er In the Missouri valley. Roberts ,
the big captain , pulls off the long spir
als with unerring precision for sixty
to seventy yards at a clip , and never
makes n bobble. By this feature alone
the Indians can offset ordinary gains
of their opponents and get the ball
within striking distance of the enemy's
goal. Nevltt nnd Island , who alter
nate at quarter , had some things to
uncork against the Nebraskans , and
Delora , Bonder's little halfback , is a
wonder. Ho is a ten second man , and
Is ns slippery as an eel with the ball.
