LONDON. Nov. (New York Worlil Cn-blu-rnm-Special

lomhlned to glo London, phyHlcally ami I
mentally, Iih most lugubrious aspect during I
the week now dosing. From Saturday till
Thursday fog absolutely dominated tho
metropolis, causing thirteen fntul accidents,
impeding or stopping locomotion, rendering
Ktrcct t radii: confused and highly periloii".
disorganizing tlir railways, closing tlio
theaters, bringing business almost to a
ntnndstllt nml sending up tbo death rain

At thncH tlio brown pall of mist was no

horses' heads. Cabmen bad to load their
horses by hearing lamps. At congested
points llkn Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park
corner and the Hank of Kngland foot and
horso traflli! repeatedly got Into such a
hopeless inuddln that progress was Impos
sllilo fur hours at a time.
Friday morning tho fog lifted and for the
first time In six days Londoners saw day
light. Throughout that time thn fog had
been so thick It bold the smoke In sum
pension. Tho wayfarer who had groped his
way through the streets for an hour
emerged Into the artificial light of n house,
blackened around the'oyrs nml the wrinkles
of his face llko an actor's made up for the
stago.
Ilnrilxhlp uf tlio !'.
Incidents Illustrating tho fog's Irresist
ible sway could be multiplied a hundred
fold. When a fashionable dinner party
lssuod from tho Carlton hotel Saturday
night tho guests soon discovered It would
be hopeless, or at least dangerous, to nt
tompt to find tho wny homo In carriages.
Tho countess of Essex and another woman
alighted In their Jewels and flnory from
their cnrrlago In Pall .Mall. Intending to
walk along tho footway beside tho carriage
ns tho safest If not the only means of
gottlng homo. They were quickly lost In tho
fog snd affer they had- wandered around,
torrlded and helpless, In pitch black dark
ness for nn hour a policeman conducted
thom to a friend's houso In Piccadilly,
where, giving up their attempt to get home,
they wero compelled to seek shelter for
tho night.
Another ovonlng nn omnibus, heavily
laden lnsldo anil out, was proceeding at a
walk across thu broad thoroughfaro to
Westminster bridge, when tho near horse
got Into difficulty and tho vohlclo bumped
nnd swayed dangerously. Tho conductor
found that tho omnibus had got upou tho
footpath and tbo horsn was struggling des
perately with a foreleg over tho bridge
parapet. Tho omnibus with Its human

Tuesday at 3-.30 o'clock In tho aftornoon,
when tho heavy traffic from four converging
rolnts had got into nn Incxtrlcablo tangle
at Ilydo Park corner, the carriages of a
wedding party returning from church be
came mixed up with a struggling, Jammod
mass of vehicles of ovcry description, driv
ers shouting nud womon screaming nnd
orylng In tho Inky gloom. Flnnlly tho brldo
snd bridegroom mado helr way to the
sidewalk, then lost their trnck and wan

Msny years ago tendon had such a dim
visitation from Its November enemy. This
early Hppearance of tho densest fog always
heralds the coining of nn exceptionally se
vere winter
London's condition In tho fog lslngi
lnrly symbolic of the plight Into which the
affairs of the imipiro have drifted In tho
hands of n Jingo administration. Tho cab
inet has had two protracted sessions, des
perately striving to discover somo means
of dealing with the South African im
broglio nnd of penetrating tho alarming
mystery of Franco's alms in provoking a
trials In Turkey.
Horhcr- llnrk In Politic.
The. proved Incompetence of tho ministry
Is so unanimously recognised that Lord
Roebery's sudden announced Intention of
re-entering the political arena has evoked
a general and fervent hopo thnt ho may
suggest thn forming of n non-partisan cab
inet nf officials especially constituted to
lead tho country out of tho deepening
morass into which the Imperialists have
plunged It. Tho tension of tho public mind'
Is shown by tho fact that consols, which
stood nt 112 before the war. havo dropped to
91, tho lowest point touched in thirty years,
and this nt n time when the trade boom was
not yet spent.
Hut with tho prospect of effecting a con
quest of thn lloer republic fading Into the
dim, uncertain future, with n gaunt specter
of nmscrlptlnn looming up with growing
ileflnllenens, with tho chancellor of the ex
chequer's grim furccafit of an era of grind
ing taxation and. atovo all, with the total
disbelief In ministerial rapacity to solve
thn momentous problems they have raised,
the fitiauclnl outlook Inevitably Is depress
ing. Kxprdlrnls nf Ministerialist.
The expedients adopted by the ministerial
prws to blind tho public to the truo con
dition of affairs in South Africa Is Incredi
ble. Thus the Times, commenting on the
llrukeulnagte disaster, where two guns were
lost, ays! "It Is n victory for our arms,
though a victory dearly bought."
The utnld, would-bo high-toned Spectator
observes on tbo weeks dispatches: "The
war news durlug tho week has been fairly
latlsfactory."
In otnelal circles this optimism la any
thing but shared and tho gravest rumors
nr nflont regarding loss of morale among
the officers, who havo grown wearied and
llstlrss In tho war and are serklnfi every
Jj'purtunlty of neglecting their stern duties

LONDON, Nov. !.(Now Vork World Ca
blegram Sper la Telegram.) A suit which
wns amusing nnd instructive, especially for
Americans ambition for paid social Intro
ductions, was decided this week.
Sir Frederick Miller 3iied a firm of house
agents for negligence In letting his Pari:
Lane mansion to Mrs. Cora llnidy, de
scribed as a plausible, handsome, dashing
Irish woman.
Mrs. Hrady had told tho agent that sho
had contracted to act ns special sponsor for
two wealthy Atncrlran women, names not
given, who were to pny her $15,000 for the
season for her Introductions. Tho rent of
the house as fS.COO, but she only paid
one quarter's rent.
Sir Frederick Miller recovered $2,100 from
the agents for damage done to his furniture
during her tenancy. The evidence showed
that the woman had tolerably good con
nections, but was unable to be of benefit to
Amoiicnns who hunker after the smart
sovlcty.
The beautiful countess of Warwick Is n

energy nnd endurance. Her clover show nt

PAUIS. Nov. !. (New York World Cable

Ilnlley circus, which will open hero next
week, has been taken as an object lesson.
The piesldent of thn Doard ot Health took
n crowd of officers to tho Onllery of Ma
chines, tho biggest hall In tho world, where
the circus la established, and discoursed
thus:
"Ocntlemen, 1 have brought you here to
show you how tho Amorlcans surpass us
when It comes to solving great problems In
organization, alco In sanitary arrangements.
For yenrs wo have given our horse and
cattlo shows In this hall with nothing but
surface drainage, insufficient precaution.!
against firn and no healing whatsoever.
Now sco what tho Americans have done."
The party then inspected the stnblo ar
rangements, tho employes' camp, tho prop
erty room and tho vast kitchens for man
and beast. Kvery Inch of ground was
trenched nnd sewered, strain heat wns iu
stnlled, water under high pressuro was
overywhero available to flood nny part
which might bo In danger from Are.
Then thero were prlvato switches, bring
ing within the building tho mcnagcrio and
property trains. Tho tracks were covered
during the day, but uncovered after mid
night to bring In train loads of hay, litter
nnd food stuff.
Klectrlo lights were everywhere. Thero
were private dynamos in tho offices, employ
ing sixty department managers and account
ants, and a private telephone evchango con
necting tho multitudinous departments with
ono another, with tho city and with nil
Kurope. Whllo tho visitors wero admiring
American Ingenuity, Trlme Minister Wal
deck Rousseau telephoned to his brother-in-law
In Londonfrom the manager's desk.
The manager next called u( the liar mini -Dallcy
representative In Berlin, settling
several business questions In the twinkling
of nn oye, whllo tho prime minister wns
holding n second recolver to bis ear. The
French visitors expressed unbounded ad
miration. Thn circus will remain In Paris five
mouths, running special excursions from
tho suburbs direct Into the building.
Minister of Commerce Mlllcrnnd, having
been told tbesc wonders, said: "That Is
exactly why I nm asking congress for an
appropriation to establish a French gov
ernment school In the United States. Our
engineers, merchants and business men ot
all sorts must Americanize their methods.
We send our artist laureates to Italy and
(Ireece, where Frunre maintains, expensive

"Now we must tako every year, Bay 100

snd support them from three to five years
whllo they are working In various parts ot
the country, In mines, In factories, on rail

Monument In lOiiiiini'lpntoi',
The czar, though not usually credited with
literary proclivities, Is arranging the Im
mense mass of prlvato papers left by his
grandfather, Alexander II, rclntlng to tho
emancipation of serfs. An official rerlcs ot
volumes on this subject will be Issued, a
sort of monument to the Liberator. Soma
of Alexander's dispatches and memorials on

An American company has received a
franchise to construct a street railway Una
here, which Involves building an enormous
bridge over the River Neva. Tho wholo
cost of the enterprise Is estimated at $."0,
000,000. The franchise has already received
tho sanction of M. Wltte, the minister of
finance. In financial circles It is believed
that this will have a powerful political and
economical effect on the futuru ot Russia
and the United Stotes. M. Wltto certainly
Is anxious to develop a connection between
thu two countries, and will hnvo no hesita
tion In doing so even nt thn. rxpense of

of Culmo Seymour, ono of tho best of tho

Ilnlfnur, another 'varsity stroke, went off
the same way last year, as did Cotton thu
yeor before. Seeing that no man Is selected
for the "varsity crewn without undergoing
a vigorous physlrat examination, the per

A vigorous correspondence has been pro

that tho treatment of womon In America
by men In the street cars came In for rough
criticism, and It Is claimed that sis a whole
civility toward the weaker sex Is more gen

A curious commentary on this comes this

Iu Prussia thero Is one teacher to every

at dnrk empty-handed.
It Is believed thut the twenty-four con
victs still at liberty have broken up Into
twos and threes and scattered to avoid at
tracting attention, and this may old them
In getting a wny. It Is now possible that
somo of them may gut Into tho Indian ter
ritory before, morning. As fast nn tho men

Itentlnry nnd placed In solitary confine

of conspiring to kill their guards nnd with

CHICAGO, Nov. 9. The rtocord-Herald
tomorrow will say:
In his mcfcengo to congress President
Roosovelt will Incorporate certain radical
recommendations regarding tho Interstate
Commerce commission nnd will probnbly
urgo the passage of remedial legislation
which will pluro tho commission In a po
sition to be n power for good In the traffic
world.
Concerning the matter, Chnlrmnn Knapp
of tho commission said: "I am reliably
Informed that the president will treat or
thn commission In his messnge and will
mnko some recommendations to congresti as
to legislation that Is necessary to enable
tho commission to accomplish what the
law creating It Intended that It should ac
complish." Tho essential facts secured by the Inves
tigation which closed today nre: That rail
roads east and west cut export rates con
stnntly and do not publish their export
rates; that a condition eclats In tho Cen
tral Freight association which morally
prove that thn roads cantbound from Chi
cago are pooling on grain and praln prod
ucts; that the rut rates In exports ar
duo largely to tho competition ot water
routes which nro not under thn supervision
of n commission; that tho bulk of grain
for domostic uso moved ns export grain,
thereby being granted a cut rate, that a
substantial discrepancy exists between the
rates on grain and flour and that hay Is a
classification higher than kindred products.

Itefore an nsremblago of o.OOO people th
Cnrnhuskcrs of Nebraska defeated the Mis
souri Tigers by a score of SI lo 0 at th
Young Men's Christian Association pari
yesterday afternoon. Though confronted bj
opponents who weighed exactly tho same
per man. 170 pounds, the Nobrasknns by
tholr fast playing and experience) wern
enabled to outclass completely tho Mis
sourlans. Rnlph Drain, iiuarterbnck, was far and
nway the star of the came. His work wat
phenomenal. Twico ho made runs foi
touchdowns ot more than fifty jards nil'
many other long gains wero credited to
him. Ho Is cnslly tho best dodger that
ever played on the Nebraska team, as he
proved by going through tho whole Held
of opponents tlmn nud again yesterday. It
Is not usual for quarterbacks to carry thi
ball, but Coach Ilooth has developed n little
delayed pass trick that enables Droln t(
use his speed and quickness to advantage.
He tnkes the ball from the center, a usual
nnd pretends to pnss It to one of the bucks
However, the back merely runs up snd
touches thu pigskin as Drain holds It Ir.
Ills hands nud thnt mnkrs It legal for the
little quarter to run with It. Meanwhlu
tho opponents nro waiting for the back am'
Drain darts out around tho other nnd. Thli
trick has been good for gains nil this ye:u
nnd yesterday the qunrter mado oue run
of sixty yards for a touchdown by means
ot It.
This was by all moans the most phe
nomenal and exulting play of tho tiny.
Drain had dodged nnd eluded every oppo
nent, save one, but that man, tho Mlssoui"
fullback. Hall, seemed certain to capture
him. Dralu skirted along on n slant for
the goal lino nnd when Hall, who weighs
175 poiii.du, mado his dive, the little back
caught him squarely In the fact: with his
outstretched hand on the straight-Arm In
terference nnd threw him yards nwny,
speeding then on toward the goal.
Hick Somo us Well.
Rut two touchdowns were, not the ex
tent of Drain's work. Nebraska ronton
wero thrilled as they hnvo not liecn In
years when ho dropped bark In the sec
ond halt ami kicked n goal Horn field on
the twcnty-llvo yard line. This Is the fit hl
time Nebraska has mniln a Held goal slncn
when llonedlct did tho work.
Thou on kicking goals fiom touchdown
Drnln missed but two out of right. So
summed up, his work represents a large
sham of the whole gume, nnd In engineer
ing the tram work hs quarterback h'j
headwork wna perfect.
On tho defense, too, Drain lived up to
every word that Phil King, the Wisconsin
conch, snld nbout him after seeing him
play at Minneapolis. King Is known as the
"Silent Man," but after wutchluc Drain'
work In tackling the Gophers tlmn nftei
time safely when ho was thn only ohMad
between 200 pounds of beef and thn goal,
ho opened up nnd snld to Coach Rootle
"I havo never Keen nny quarterback In
nny gnmn back up his team ns well ns that
llttlo fellow did today."
This is Drnln's Inst enr of piny. lie
weighs only 115 pounds.
Aul .Much I'nnt llnll.
From stiirt to finish tho game was nni
of "follow thn lender" us much iis foot bnll
The strangers were bowled over like sc
mnny tenpins, and wherever tho Nebraskant
wished to go thorn scorned to be room foi
thum to get tbert. Thn men from Mlssour'
wero game, but hnlpless, and by thn tint'
tho two long halven of thlrty-flvo mlnut'i
woro ended they hud been "shown" to the
heart's content of thn most rapacious scar
let and cream rooter of them nil.
Absolutely no doubt ns to the result wm
entertained from thn tme. when, only foul
minute after tho southerners Imd kick' t
tho ball off for tho first time, Loft Tackle
Kingsbury of the Nebraska tenm rnrrled It
over the line for thn first touchdown.
From thn on tho scores camo thick nni
fast. Twenty-two to nothing was tho tall j
nt the nnd of thn first half, nnd spectutori
hegan to think thnt P. would not go much
higher, for In thn second hnlf Nehrask
vould kick off to Missouri, giving tho Tlgeri
tho ball.
However, that made no difference, Ani!
the Cornhuskers more than douhled theli
score In tho last half, making twenty-nln!
polntB more. It was Just as easy for them
to takPytho ball away (rom their opponent
on dowlis or to compel thn Mlssnurlans lo
kick as It was to run It down the Held for
another touchdown after they secured pen
session, Willi! (lie fill in r Mums,
A resume of the. actual technicalities of
tho game Illustrates how completely thu
Tigers wero snowed under nnd also shows
that tho tesult was absolutely on tho
morlts ot tho game and thnt no tlukes as
sisted Nebraska to her phenomenal scoie.
On tho other hand, the only sllpu that did
occur aided Mhsourl rather than Nehiaskn.
In the first place, Nebraska rnrrled 'hn
pigskin altogether 516 ynrds, besides kick
ing It a great many more. In contrast io
this Missouri advanced thn bnll but nine
teen ynrds duiins the entire gamo by carr -log
It and, nlso did some kicking.
Marked as thnt comparison there 'i
another still more annihilating. Only oiho
did thn Tigers mako thn necessary dlitaii' n
on three downs to retain tho ball, II vo
yards. Nover once did Nebraskn fall to do
so, Necr once woro the Cornhuskers com
polled to relinquish the hull to tholr an
tagonists because nf Inability to adwinro It.
So, although thero was much kicking
done, especially toward tho' end of thn
game, Nebraska wm never compelled in
boot the ball nnd Missouri wns always
forced to such tactics,
Such .contrasts show how completely the
Tigers wero outelamed, ynt drspltn all th'
thn game was a fierce one and intensely
Intel estlnc, for the boya from Mlisourl are
tull of i rue sporting blood u:id fought
