Haskell Intends to Beat Nebraska
Will Be a Battle Royal
Rates Within 100
A Lawrence, Kan., Oct. 26, dispatch
says: The football game which will
probably be the best and hardest game
this season will be played at Lin
coln, Neb., next Saturday, when the
Haskell Indians and the Nebraska
Cornhuskers will struggle for the
championship of the states of Nebras
ka, Kansas and Missouri. The result
of the Nebraska-Missouri game was a
surprise. Reports indicate that the Ne
Nebraskans had their hands full, while
one week ago the Redskins scored al
most p w'll on -the Tigers. It is, of
course, likely that the Cornhuskers
took things easy and avoided unneces
sary exertion in order that their con
dition for Haskell might be unim
paired, so the two scores can hardly
be used as a measure of the respective
Btrength of the teams. Coach Booth of
Nebraska, was a very interested spec
tator at the Haskell-Washburn game
"Saturday, and he was unsparing In his
praise of the aborigines. He makes no
secret of the fact that he is by no
mans confident of victory. When asked
by the Journal correspondent what
the score would bo he made no esti
mate. He said, however, that he hoped
to win on team work. Booth freely
admitted that his team individually
was not nearly so fast as Haskell, but
ho claims that the team work of the
Nebraskans Is faster and more reliable.
The big ex-Princeton center was en
thusiastic over Haskell's back field and
ends. Ho said that if Archiquetto or
Baine over got a start the Nebraska
goal line would be In danger. It is evi
dent from what Booth said that he
considers the Haskell line a trifle
weak and he will probably batter it
hard. The Cornhuskers are not so
heavy as the Indians, according to
The showing of Haskell yesterday
was a--surprise even to her backers.
WaBhburn's lino was strengthened by
Hughes and Clark, two of tho famous
Washburn team of 1900, and the To
pekans were sure of victory. Haskell
started in with the customary rush
and gained ground as fast as the lines
men could carry their yard sticks. Tho
Indian offense was manifestly strong
er than at any previous time thlB year.
Tho interference was much more ef
fective and the man with tho ball was
helped on In better shape. On the de
fensive there seemed to be no weak
places In the line. Carl at center
ktyrlll strengthen the line for the Ne
braska game.
All of the Haskell men are In good
shape to practice hard this week to
prepare for Nebraska and Coach Out
land will do his best to put them In
condition to win. No trick plays were
used In yesterday's game by the In
dians, so that Booth only saw the
strnight game. The Indians have a
stock of tricks that they will be pre
pared to spring un the Nebraskans.
The game will be a good exhibition
of punting. Benedict, Nebraska's
quarter, bids fair to rival the great
halfback, Benedict, who made a record
as a kicker. Captain Fallls, of Has
kell, is also a punter of no mean abil
ity and the Haskell ends get down so
fast that Haskell can probably hold
her own on an exchange of punts.
Baine, tho big Haskell half, Is a good
place kicker, also, so that Haskell Is
well provided with hooters.
The above dispatch states what Has
kell intends to try for next Saturday.
The game will be one of the most ex
citing in the history of the institution.
Nebraska now has a reputation lo sub
taln. Tho Haskell people know'vlt and
will try to take the lead.
The gnme will decide practically th,e
championship of west of the river. If
Nebraska wins it will place her
among the leaders In the country.
Haskell realizes this and will try to
put herself In Nebraska's place. The
varsity team will receive as great sup
port as at any time since the plaj Ing
of football in Nebraska.
A rate has been made of one fare for
the round trip from all points within
one hundred miles. The athletic board
Is hastening the erection of more seat
ing capacity and intends to handle on
immense crowd.
Football Practice.
The scrubs had three touchdowns
scored against them last night by the
varsity. The first was. obtained by a
fumble when the scrubs had tho ball
on their own 5 yard line. The ball
rolled behind tho line and a varsity
man fell on It. SimodymuB made a
long run that nearly resulted In a
score, but was tackled by Myers before
he could cross the line.
Cotton and Ringer failed to appear
for practice last night, their places be
ing taken by Tobm and Hunter. Mr.
Hunter has been sent to the training
Sophs ys. Freshmen.
The first class football game at the
year will be played between the Sopho
mores and Freshmen Friday afternoon
at 2:30.
This will be a very Interesting con
test and every loyal classman should
turn out and yell for his team. Both
elevens have been practicing dally at
chapel time and are now In good trim
to battle hard for class supremacy.
A fair grade of football ought to be
put up at this game as there are men
on each of these teams who play with
the varsity scrubs and each captain
has some fifteen or twenty candidates
from which to pick ills men.
. The Freshmen have not lined up
while the Sophomores have defeated
the Lincoln Academy.
The football game between the Soph
omores and the Academy failed to
come off yesterday. Only eight Soph
omore pfayers appeared, while the
Academy was out In full force. The
latter claims the game by default
Mr. Cook of American History
Department Compares ll. S.
and Australian Consti
tutions Mr. W. W. Cook addressed the
students at convocation yesterday on
"The Australian Constitution." Ho
said in substance:
On the first day of tho present cen
tury tho constitution adopted by the
six Australian colonies became effec
tive, and the commonwealth of Aus
tralia camo into existence. Since 1847
the question of federation had been
discussed and In 1891 a constitution
was actually framed but failed of adop
tion. Tho present constitution was
framed by a convention of delegates
elected by tho people of every colony
but one. and was submitted to the dif
ferent legislatures for ratification. Af
ter It was passed upon by the legisla
tures the convention re-assembled and
put tho constitution Into final shape.
After being adopted by direct vote of
the people In each colony the consti
tution was sent to England and be
came a law with practically no
Australia, said the professor, has
now a federal form of government, con
sisting of a central government and
six states. The central government is
a government of enumerated powers,
while the states possess residuary pow
ers. In adopting this principle they
followed our example rather than that
of Canada.
The sneaker assorted that there are
two differences between our constltu- (
tlon and that of Australia: First, a
much wider range of subjects is placed
under the control of the central gov
ernment In Australia; 1. e., lawB re
lating to marriage and divorce, Insur-
qualifications of voters at national
elections. Second, the constitution
vests only a few powers exclusively
.n the central government and states,
especially that in all other coses tho
commonwealth and states have concur
rent powers. That is, until the com
monwealth government regulates a
given question the state may exercise
A further section provides that when
the central government does legislate
upon a given subject, Its laws super
sede all state laws on that question.
A similar provision In our own system
would have prevented a large amount
of litigation on constitutional ques
tions. The Australian legislature, said Mr.
Cook, consists of the lower house, sim
ilar to our own, It being representative
of the population, except that no state
can have less than five representatives,
and upper house, the senate. In the sen
ate each state has six members who are
elected by direct vote of the people,
one half of whom retire every three
years. The separation of powers, how
ever, 1b not as complete as in our
system. The nominal executive Is tho
governor general, appointed by tho
crown of England, while the real exe
cutive is the cabinet, composed of tho
heads of the executive departments.
ThlB cabinet may bo described as a
committee of the lower Iioubo and Ib
politically responsible to tho legisla
ture. Tho real executive is thoreforo
made up of tho recognized leaders of
that political party which has a ma
jority In the lower house, and remains
in ofilco only so long rs It can com
mand tho confidence of a majority of
that house. As a result, the small
states that had won equal representa
tion In tho senate gave up their victory
by allowing the executive to be vested
In tho lower house, which Is represen
tative of tho population of tho Btatos.
Another peculiarity lies In tho fact
that In case of a disagreement of tho
two houses on any bill, if the senate re
fuses to pass the bill after three
months of waiting, the house repasses
it and then, if the Bonate still refuses,
tho governor general dissolves both
houses and order a new election. If tho
new houses still disagree, tho governor
general may call a Joint session and
the bill can become a law by receiving
an absolute majority of the votes cast
In Joint session.
Provision is made for a system of
courts at the head of which Is tho high
court, which interprets the constitu
tion. The methods of amending the Aus
tralian constitution differ greatly from
our own, amending being easier,
which, Mr. Cook thinks, is an improvement.
New Cadet Orders.
Captain Chase issued some import
ant orders Monday night. The con
text of the rules which have been laid
down is as follows:
All orders will be bulletined hereaf
ter and cadets should examine them
carefully. Applications for absence or
information should be made In writing
to the commandant, and explanations
for delinquencies should be submitted
in writing on tho proper blanks.
Demerits vary from three to twenty
points, according to tho magnitude qf
the offense. Fifty will fall a man for
tho semester and disqualify him for
promotion. Any cadet receiving six
ty is rqparted to the Chancellor with
a view to his suspension or expulsion
from the university, according to the
circumstances of the case.
No man will be allowed to play in
the cadet band unless he is registered
for the work. On and after November
3d the band will appear in uniform at
all formations, and non-commissioned
staff and band are hereafter under
charge of the adjutant.
Cadets should iot fall to salute all
officers during drill hour, and must see
that their guns and belts are properly
cleaned and polished. No property
should be removed from the armory
without permission from the com
mandant Two more corporals were appointed.
