HARD LUCK STICKS TO HOME BOYS

On tlic DefeiiNlvc All the
Wny Through ( lie tinino.
The gridiron wnrrlors of the Omaha and
the Des Molncs High schools had a battle
royal at the Ames Avenue ball grounds yes.
terday afternoon. At the conclusion of two
hours' play the score was O'to 0 and the ball
In Omaha's terri
was on the forty-yard line
tory. This result was satisfactory to neither
ouo nor the other of the aggregations and as
a consequence a return game Is to beplayed. .
On next Saturday the two elevens will meet
again on the grounds of the Des Molnea
High school. Dickinson at taeklo and Kngle-
hart at fullback played the star game for
the Omaha team. Both these players wcre >
decidedly strong On offensive work. When
the pigskin was given to cither it was certain - .
tain that the required gain would be made.
Luck played the Des Moines'eleven for fa ;
vorltcs , for the losal team had the ball twlco
on the gncmy's five-yard line and each time
lost the opportunity to score.
The gunio started promptly at 3 o'clock ,
Omaha winning the toss and choosing the
wind. DCS Moines kicked Into Omaha's ter
ritory , but the local aggregation soon re
gained possession of the pigskin and was on
the offensive during the fntlro half. When
within reach of the DCS Moines' goal , how.
ever , the local team would lese the ball on
downs or by a fumble. The half ended with
the ball In the mlddlo of the Held and In the
possession of Omaha.
In the second half Dickinson , Englehart
and Thomas figured prominently. These
three men succeeded in oozing through tht >
Dos Molnea line whenever the pigskin was
turned over to them and they brought the
bill to within five yards of the Des Molnea
goal. Hero it was lost on a fumble ana
after an ineffectual attempt to get through
the line Des Moines kicked the ball to the
center of the flelil. Again the Omahans car
ried the ball down the field , but when they
were within n couple of yards of the goal
line the Des Moines eleven took a marvelous
brace and secured the ball on downs. DCS
Moines punted the ball to the center of the
field and hero the referee called time. The

A fine point concerning the election regis
tration law , affecting the opportunity to
vote , for Hon. N. B. Ashby , lately returned
consul for the United States to Dublin , was
today referred by the registration board to
County Auditor McQulston for decision. In
1890 Ashby was appointed consul to Dub
lin. Ho was at the tlmo residing In Cedar
Rapids. After his appointment ho moved
to Des Moines. Ho resided In the city
about ono month before leaving for his for
eign post. While absent too claimed his
residence during the entire .period to bo
In Des Moines. He returned from abroad
October IS , to live here. The point at issue
Is , did Ashby gain residence in Des Moines ,
or has his residence remained in Cedar
Rapids during the period of his absence ?
Ashby claims that his residence was prop
erly in Des Molncs through the entire period.
The registration board Is In doubt , because
of.the requirement of the law that a resident
of ono county moving Into another must
be In a second county sixty days before
he gains residence. Ashby applied to the
registration board for permission to register
and was refused. The brard declined to
permit registration under the circumstances
and referred the point to Auditor McQuIs-

HOBSON EXPLAINS HIS WORK
Million Dollar * Will Do Required to
Save the AYrccUcd .Simnlnh
WASHINGTON. Oct. 29. Naval Con
structor Hobson appeared before the Board
of Naval Bureau Chiefs today for the pur
pose of explaining the condition of the Span
ish ships wrecked off the coast of Santiago
and the progress and prospects of the efforts
which are making for their recovery. It Is
said that over $1,000,000 will bo required to
cover the operations and the secretary of
the navy desires to know what chance there
is of success before authorizing the ex
penditure of so large an amount of money.
Constructor Hobson was with the board all
the afternoon and gave detailed Information
as to the condition of the wrecks. Ho was
of the opinion that it was useless to continue
the wrecking company any longer and that
results did not warrant the $ SOO per day It
Is receiving. Constructor Hobson said that
in his opinion the Colon and Vlzcaya could
bo raised and brought to dry dock at New
York or Norfolk at a cost of $300,000 for one
and $400,000 for the other and possibly both
could be brought In for $400,000 each. The
government would of course take the risk
of expending $200,000 on each of the vessels
and In the end find It was unable to raise
them. Mr. Hobson wanted to bo placed at
the head ot a wrecking company which he
should organize and bo authorized to expend
from $800,000 to $900,000 on the two vessels ,
He said the hull of the Vizcaya was Intact
and proposes to build a cofferdam around It
and bring it to the surface after making re
pairs necessary to float It. Mr. Hobson also
gave the bureau chiefs Information concernIng -
Ing the Rclna Mercedes nnd the Merrlmac.
The former could bo easily raised , ho be
lieved , for it was apparent that It had been
only scuttled. The Merrirnac could be
raised and he said it must be removed from
the mouth of the harbor in some way.

day Testimony of the
CHATTANOOGA , Tenn. , Oct. 29. The war
Investigation commission closed Its slttluK
here tonight by a hearing of testimony ot
some residents , stating their observation or
the condition at Chlckamauga park while
the troups were there and giving their con
clusions ns to the cause of the sickness of
the soldiers. They defended the climate as
salubrious and healthful and generally at-
tiibutfd the prevalences of disease to the
habits of volunteers.
Major Edward T. Comcgys was the
first witness before the commission
today. Ho was medical purveyor hero dur
ing the life of Camp Thomas. Ho stated
there had never been any delay In lining lib
requisitions ou the surgeon general , and thai
he had always been able to meet all requi
sitions upon himself. Major Corncgya ad
mitted that ho had refused to fill Rome requi
sitions from the hospital of the Second divi
sion of the Third corps because satisfied the
articles demanded were not needed. Ho ac
counted for the sickness In Camp Thomas
by saying the men did not know how to take
care of themselves.
Lieutenant James M. Arraamlth , who actrd
as chief commissary of subsistence for Camp
I Thomas , said that while In the beginning
I there had been some congestion on the trans ,
portation lines , there had never been any
, shortage of supplies. There was constantly
on band on average ot 1 , ,00,000 pounds of
i rations. The rations were the best ho had
ever seen Issued In many years' experience.
He thought the principal trouble In regard
to the rations was in the matter of cooking.
Lieutenant Arrasmlth also said the slnku
were very badly cared for and that tut ?
stench around the camp at night was simply
stifling. Ho also eald the discipline was vcr >
slack. Witness considered Chlckamaugu a.
natural camping site , but that there were
moro men In It than there should have been.
Some of the volunteer regiments never tool'
down their tents during their entire Btay ami
I there was general negligence ot cleanliness
I and sanitation. Ho did not accept the theory
that the formation of the ground was such
that the sinks could not be made deep
enough. There was , ho said , a general Im
provement in the camp after General Breck-
Inrldgo took command.
Doctors Baxter and Boyd , local physicians ,
were called to testify in regard to the casv
of Sergeant Frank , who died here during the
summer as the result of a railroad accident.
Dr. Baxter said that notwithstanding th
man was In a state of profound shock after
the accident , Dr. Samuel D. Hubbard , sur <
geon of the regiment , Insisted upon remov
ing the wounded man to Chlckamauga park.
The man died on the way out , as he ( Baxter )
had predicted ho would. Dr. Baxter told or
, certain ot Wisconsin's alck whom he had
seen on their way homo without a medical
j officer or medical supplies.
j J. C. Howell , railroad station agent , told
of an Instance in which titty-four sick men ,
being part of a Wisconsin command , had
been placed on a train and started to their
homes without medical supplies or phy
sicians and without furloughs or transporta
tion papers. They were taken off the train
at Chattanooga and mcdlcino was adminis
tered by members of the relief societies ,

DAWES COMMISSION REPORTS

Off Than the ludlniiN.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 29. The nnnual report -
port of the Dawcs Indian commission , bring
ing the work of that body In reorganizing
Indian territory up to date of early thla
week , was made public today. It urges
as the main call 'for government aid ,
"fraught with disastrous consequences U
delayed , " the need of some piovlslon by the
national government for educational pur
poses In the territory. While the funds nml
resources of the several tribes , properly
managed , can probably supply sutTlclcnt sup
port for the schools ot the citizen Indians ,
yet the -white residents cannot share In them
and must look elsewhere for the means of
educating their children.
There are believed to be between 250,000
and 200,000 white residents In the terri
tory tnday and well nigh 30,000 of thein
children of school ago. While some of them ,
living In the towns , are anxious to educate
their children and may be able to some ex
tent to do so from their private mpans , yet
It Is quite different with the poor pioneers
In tlio country , who constitute by far tin
larger part of this white population. They ,
however anxious , cannot of themselves com
mand the means or the opportunity to edu
cate their children. Consequently a very
large proportion of these 30,000 children ot
school age , Increasing In number every year ,
are in danger ot growing up In Ignorance ,
to take upon themselves the responsibilities
