medical officer attached to the naval acad

constating of the lifting and folding .over

aiKh blood clots a might be formed, was
performed by Dr. Finney and Dr. Thomas,
the specialist In that line, who came to
Annapolis at Dr. Flnney'a request In order
to locate from the symptoms the proper
place for the operation. Dr. Byrnes was
called In consultation with Mr. Stone
shortly after Branch bad been brought to
Much evidence of a deeply interesting,
though some of the time of a technical
character, was giver by the medical men.
All of the medical officers gave It as
their very positive conviction that Branch
died from the effect of he blows he had
received In his fight with Meriwether.
They belittled any possible effect of the
treatment Branch received after the fight
and gave it as their opinion that no treat
ment could have Raved his life. The ab
sence of in autopsy was explained by
Burgeon Byrnes, who stated that Branch's
father refused his permission. ,
The principal witness called was Sur
geon E. P. Stone of the Naval academy
staff. lie gave a detailed account of
Branch's symptoms, his, treatment and the
changes In his condition" leading up to his
death. The death, he said, was primarily
due to oedema of the vessels of the brain,
this was not disclosed by the operation and
no autopsy was performed, as Branch's
parents would not consent.
The cross examination of Dr. Stone by
lieutenant Commander Roblson, counsel
for the defense, was very searching and
several members of the court also asked
questions on different phases of Dr. Stone's
testimony. The defense evidently wished to
talse a doubt as to the posltiveness of the
proof that Branch's death was necessarily
caused by the blows of Meriwether and
asked many questions of the medical officer
as to the possibility of some unhealthful
condition of Branch's bringing about the
death. He was also examined as to the
effect of the absence of an autopsy and Ills
ability' under the circumstances to testify
posltlvely as to the cause of death.
A large part of the time of the session
this morning was taken up In reading over
and verifying the record of yesterday's
proceedings. This Is required by regulations
and as many witnesses were examined yes

Correcting; the Testimony.
Several witnesses noted minor discrep
ancies in the recording of their testimony
tr corrected themselves on statements they
had made. According to the practice of
naval courts-martial further questions, are
allowed to be made of witnesses who are re
ralled. and ono or two important points
developed In this manner. Midshipman
A. M. Kltch, the referee of the Meriwether
Branch fight, who admits to acting as ref
eree In nineteen similar encounters, was
Questioned ss to the use of the gloves which
were used in v the fight at the academy.
These gloves are used to protect the hands
when punching the bag, but Fitch said
that there was no regulation, as far as he
know, sgainst their use In the friendly
boxing matches at the gymnasium. He
ilso said that he had never seen them so
used. In answer to a question by a mem

The only ltn"e railed during "the
morning session besides Surgeon Fume were
Lieutenant Commander H. J. 7,egrmelr
and Hospital Steward John F. Mahnakee.
The former was called to prove that the
articles for the government of the navy
which contain the prohibition against fight
ing were read to nil midshipmen during the
summer cruise, during which the witness
commanded th Hartford, on which Meri
wether was stationed.
Hospital 8'ewa-d Mahnakee was sum
moned to have his testimony fill the gap
befwern the testimony of Tritrhard as to
the development of Branch's unfavorable
symptoms and his reception by the hospital
authorities. He told of being summoned
to Bancroft hall, seeing Branch and recog
nizing his serious condition. This he re
ported to Dr. Stone and was ordered to
bring Branch to the bospltnl. He had him
carried In an electric carriage to the hos
pital and delivered him to Surgeon 8tone.
The transfer, he testified, was accomplished
without anythltvg to disturb Branch.
Condition of Branch.

Branch came tindcf his care at the hos
pital at about :30 on Monday. He was
absolutely unconscious, he said. The loft

right eye and llpa were much swollen and
discolored and both eyes were closed.
When the eyelids were opened with the
hand the eyes rolled and generally set
toward the left. The left arm and leg
were paralyied and there was a convulsive
movement in the right arm and leg. There

ATTEI.I, AXU SILL1VA
Washington Kid Has Best of It, but Is
Vnable to Land Knockout Blovr.
BALTIMORE. Nov. 23,-Kld Sullivan of
Washington and Abe Attell of San Fran
cisco met in a fifteen-round match before
the Eureka Athletic club tonight. Jt was
whispered at the ringside that Immediately
before the meeting Attell had insisted upon
its being called a draw If both men were
on their feet at the close of the nfteenth
round, and Ills one object seemed to be to
prolong the fight to that point. He suc
ceeded and Referee O'Hare held up the
hands of both men. Throughout the match
Attell used practicallv onl" one blow, a left
Jab. that never tended hard enough to make
Sullivan angry. The only other feature of
tho Attell campaign was his fondness for
clinching to avoid punishment and foot
work that his admirers called magnificent,
while those of Sullivan dubbed It a sprint
ing match. Sullivan did about all the liglit
Ing and inflicted a good deal of punishment,
but was unable to land a knockout blow
on his agilo opponent.

The disaster which overtook Booth's t'orn
huskers last Saturday In their annual
clash with Minnesota wss so overwhelm
ing and unexpected that the average Ne
braska rooter has not yet recovered from
the shock. It is still a sore spot with
Booth, who has felt it too keenly to at
tempt explanations or excuses. He con
fesses that his proteges played the dopiest
game of the entire season. While giving
Minnesota full credit In the possession of
a great foot ball team, he asserts that
Benedict and Borg were the only men on
the entire eleven who played with any
vim or spirit. The others stood up almost
like signs, letting Minnesota get the Jump
on every down, and that under such cir
cumstsnces Nebraska was lucky to come
out of it without a greater score against
it. Booth, in fact, feared a defeat all
the while, only he would not openly admit
It for the reason that It will not do for
a coach to betray his misgivings to his
The Cornhuskers have Tieen playing the
same quality of lifeless foot ball, during
the present week In their preparations
for Doane college, which sends lis eleven
to Nebraska field Saturdaj . Two or three
of the players are showing signs ot state
ness, and Booth hss not worked them in
a single practice, but the slump of the
entire 'varsity crowd Is so wretched that
Booth now wishes that Doane was not on
the schedule, In order that the long rest
before Thanksgiving might permit the
bunch to again get on edge in time for
the bout with Illinois.
Doane a Formidable Opponent.
Doane has a formidable team. It has
cleaned up every minor college in the
state by big scores and has already an
nexed the inter-collegiate championship
for Nebraska. Its aggregate weight Is
greater than that of the Cornhuskers and.
If coached in the finer points of the game.
It Is not at all Improbable that Doane may
take Nebraska's measure. With such a
possibility In store. Booth is not In a rosy
humor. The practice certainly has been
ragged. On Wednesday the coach gave
the scrubs the ball In the center of the
field and three straight times they rushed
It down to within the two-yard line, while
once the 'varsity barely held with the ball
less than six Inches from the goal. Not
to be denied, the scrubs proceeded to block
the 'varsity punt and a touchdown for
the second team was a result. This dis
grace Installed a measure of ginger Into
the 'varsity, and the regulars then pro
ceeded to lug the ball on straight rushes
for ninety yards, but they fumbled on the
ten-yard line and failed of a touchdown.
At this Juncture Booth halted the
tlce, and the scrubs left the field victors
for the day.
The Nebraska hospital list now Includes
Captain Borg, center; Benedict, quarter
back; Denslow, right end, and Johnson,
left end. Denslow has only a slim chance
of mending In time for the Thanksgiving
game and Booth Is placing very little de
pendence upon him. Johnson Is out of con
sideration for Doane, and even Benedict
and Borg are questionable. With this
quartet missing,, the practice might be
expected to be poor, but it has been so
utterly wretched as to make It plain that
the slump may wreck Nebraska's chances j for $122,755.

The athletic authorities are very anxloua
to locate the identity of the person who Is
reputed In the Minnesota newspapers as
having written the Gopher board that
Quarterback Benedict has been a paid
coach all season nt Lincoln High school.

camp as an absolute falsehood and a gross
injustice to Benedict, who Is admittedly
one of the cleanest athletes ever known nt
Nebraska and Is now playing his .fourth
successive year on Booth's eleven. Dr.
Lees, chairman of the Nebraska board. In
tends to request of Minnesota that the
Identity of Benedic t's defanier be made
known. Dr. Lees, in refuting the charges,

CHICAGO, Nov. 23. President Ban John
son came out of the annual meeting of the
American Base Ball league today entirely
vindicated of the charges made against hint
of trying to wreck the organisation by
bringing about an amalgamation with the
American league. In a resolution offered
by Secretary Benjamin F. Minor of the
Washington club and seconded by F. J.
Navln of the Detroit and voted for by
every club In the league, the Chicago club
Included, President Johnson's management
Is freely Indorsed.
The resolution follows:
Whereas, reports have been recently pub
lished of a plan to combine the American
and National leagues and connecting with
this plan the name of the president of the
American league, therefore, be it resolved:
First That a vital principle underlying
the American league, having been formed
to protest against arbitrary monopoly In
base ball, the American league stats em
phatically that It was not receded one Inch
from that principle and la now, as It has
always been, in hearty and earnest accord
with the policy of the president of this
league, Mr. B. B. Johnson, who has con
sistently worked and fought for the main
tenance of two Independent but friendly
major league organizations.
Second That in view of the unexampled
success of the American league during the
season Just closed the league hereby ten
ders to its president, Mr. Johnson, Its sin
cere congratulations and offers to him Its
earnest thanks for the able, conservative
and businesslike manner In which he has
conducted Its affairs. With absolute confi
dence In his loyalty and Judgment, It lias
no doubts of the future and looks forward
to many more prosperous seasons under his
guidance and In friendly competition Willi
the National league.
Comlskey Backs Ip,
President Comiskey of the American
league today -was one. of the magnates to
address the meeting. He said he had the
utmost confidence In President Johnson and
that his statement In regard to the pro
posed amalgamation of the two major
leagues had been misunderstood. There
was great relief apparent among the other
members of the league when Comiskey
took the stand that he did. ss It was be
lieved thut thre might be an open clash
between him and President Johnson. Presi
dent Johnon listened attentively to every
word uttered by Mr. Comiskey, but did not
Tho question nf arranging a new drafting
law with the minor leagues was talked over
thoroughly and finally left for President
Johnson to settle himself. The minors,
who were represented by J. It. Farrell. sec
retary of the National Association of H;isc
Ball Leagues, and W. It. Watkina of the
American association, are after a change
In the drafting pi l"p and a modification in
the drafting ruls which will not allow
the major leagues to draft more than one
of their players every fall from each club.
The present rules permit the major leagues
to take two men from the class A league
clubs, and this Is considered a hardship,
as It hrika up a championship team In
the minor leagues too much.
The meeting was adjourned, subject to
the call of President Johnston.

The Omaha "Water Company, regarding the advertise
ment of water rates by the "Water Board of the city of
Omaha as calculated to mislead citizens and -water consu
mers with respect to the facts of the situation, desires to
say that the reduced rates attempted to be fixed for
Omaha consumers by the "Water Board have not become
. finally established, but are still the subject of contro
versy in the courts, the water company contending that
the Water Board had ho power to reduce the rates, be
cause of the city's original contract with tRe company
fixing the limit of the company's charges, which the com
pany has never exceeded, and contending also, that the
reduced rates are unreasonable. Should these conten
tions be sustained as the result of the company's pending
suit, all consumers who shall have meantime paid only
the reduced rates will be subect to legal proceedings for
the recovery of the difference. Should the reduced
rates be ultimately established the company will, ot
course, refund to each consumer who shall meantime
have paid the full rate the difference between that rate
find the rate as reduced.
