Aldermun Harris of the Ninth ward tonight Introduced in the city council a resolution requesting Cor poration Counsel James Hamilton Lewis to prepare an ordinance prohibiting the play ing of Intercollegiate foot .bull In .this city until the rules regulating the game have been modified and changed to eliminate the present dangef of strlous injury to players. The resolution was referred to the commft teo on health. . The resolution Is as follows: ' i Whereas, Many casualties have been re ported from foot ball guinea this season, where a number of deaths and serious in juries occurred umong the participants; uml Whereas. The game, as it is plaved at the preaent time, has been condemned by Presi dent Roosevelt and the professors of various universities snd colleges as a game of brutal and of unnecessary roughness, where the lives of players are Jeopardised; therefore be !t , Ordered, That the corporation counsel be ind la hereby directed to prepare and sub mil te this council an ordlnanoe prohibiting 1 "ollege foot bull In this city until the rules regulating said gutm-s are so revised as to eliminate the element of danger that now prevails.

The partial failure of two or three second-class crops makes no spparent Impression upon the great aggre gate of all crops. Valae on the Farms. The corn crop Just harvested In the Unlteo states is placed by the secretary at 2.7o OOO.ftOO bushels, a gain of 42,000,000 over the next lowest year, that of 1899. Wheat yielded 684,0O0.ono bushels, the second larg est yield In the history of the country. Oats, with a yield of B30.00n,000 bushels, tell 60,000,000 bushels short of the record pro. ductlon.

The general level of production was high and that of prices still higher, so that no crops for which separate estimates can be made fall below third place In total value compared with the crops of preceding years, except potatoes, barley, tobacco, rye and buckwheat. The cereals more than maintained their previous strong position In production, and their aggregate yield Is 4.fi'.n.nno.OOo bushels, with a farm value of $2,123.(J0u,0f, or $145,000,000 over last year. Dairy and Poultry Products. Other Items than grain, potatoes and forage enter into the estimate. The old cow Is doing her share, and so Is the hen, for the report says on this topic: Both butter and milk have higher price In 1905 than In 1904, and these, combined with Increased production, permit an esti mate of the value of dairy products at J6tK,000,ooo, or SM.mn.ono above the estimate for last year. No crop but corn produces the Income that the dairy cow does. LUND'S LAND AGENCY, with mittee on athletics, today pronounced foot j bull, as played under the present methods, to be "a brutal and abominable game" and said that if he had his way it would be prohibited. Speaking of the rules commit tee, appointed a number of years ago by the now defunct University Athletic club, Mr. Bangs described Its members as 'irre sponsible. Impervious to public opinion and culpable to their disregard of the Increasing danger of the game as they have made it." He declared that they had done nothing to better conditions and that he did not think the revision of the rules could be entrusted to them now with any confidence. Of a proposition made some months ago to refer the question of stopping foot ball to the athletic associations of the various universities. .Mr. Bangs said: "You might us well trust the cooking of u steak to a cage full of lions." President Butler suid that he was not I yet ready to make a statement for publica tion, but that the views of Mr. Bangs ap peared to him to be entirely sound. The university council several years ago authorised the president to appoint a uni versity committee on student organizations to supervise and control all student organ izations, athletic and otherwise, which In any way represent the university before the public. It is in the power of this com mittee to tuke whatever action on the pres ent question seems to them wise. it was said today at Columbia, appar ently on good authority, that President Butler has only awaited the end of tho foot ball season before calling this commit tee together and urging them peremptorily to forbid the further participation of. Co lumbia students lu the game of foot ball as It is played at present. Would Idealise the Game. CLEVELAND. Nov. ST. With reference to evils In foot ball, President Charles Twlng of Western Reserve college, said to night: Among the evils of foot bll as now played are danger to life and exposure to Injury: temptation to fraud in making up teams; temptation to betting; temptation to brutality, enthusiasm becoming so great as to become a sort of hysteria; disad- j The farmer's lien Is becoming a worthy companion to his com-. The annual pro dnctlpn of eggs Is now a score of billions, and, after supplying the needs of factories, tanneries, bakeries and other trades, they are becoming a substitute for high-priced meats, besides entertng more generally into the everyday food of the people. Poultry products have now cltmled to a plac of more than $.ViO,fi.ono in vnltr; and so the farmer's hen competes with wheat for precedence. Wealth Prodnctlon of Farms. Just to show where the farmer stands In the matter of accumulated wealth, the secretary says: Dreams of wraith production 'could hardly equal the preceding flu urea Into which various Item of the farmer's industry has been translated, and yet the story is not done. When other items, which cannot And place here, are Included it appear that the wealth production on farms in 1005 reached the highest amount ever attained by the farmer of this or any other coun try, a stupendous aggregate of results of brain and muscle nnd machine amounting in value to .,4 15,000,000. The deduction from wenlth produced made in the report of last year on ac count of products fed to live Ntock is not continued this year, because t!ie duplication of the produced wenlth in the consumption of products by farm animals is much less than has been assumed and is undoubtedly more than offset by the amount of wealth produced on farms which cannot be estimated or even ascertained practi cally by census enumerators. It might reasonably have been sup posed in 11)04 that the wealth proT duced by farmers had readied a value which would not be equalled perhajw for some years to follow, and yet that value is exceeded by the value for this year by 250,0)O,0OO, Just as the value for that year exceeded that for 10O:i by $242,000,000. The grand aggregate of wealth pro duced on farms in 1005 exceeds that of 1004 by 4 per cent; it is greater than that of 1003 by 8 per cent, and principal offices at Minneapolis an vantages to the scholarship of some play ers; too great frequency of games: ina bility of athletic associations to handle properly large sums of inony; the public exhibition of young men who are primarily students; reports in newspapers giving false interpretations of college values. To eliminate these evils President Twlng says: "Let the sport to be Idealized, the ideal be not victory but love of the sport Itself;' wise administrative bodies in charge of the teams; competent medical supervision of players; players be required to maintain reasonable standing In studies; officials in sufficient number and power on the Held instantly to check unduly rough playing; fewer games and fewer still hard games; permitting every student in college to play foot ball if agreeable to parents and the student Is physically fit." Harvard Defers Action. CAMBRIDGE. Mass., Nov, 27. President Kllot of Harvard stated last night that he would not call a meeting of the university and college presidents to undertake the re form or abolition of foot ball. A request that he call such a meeting was received by President Eliot in a telegram from Chancellor MucCracken of New York vuii verslty, after the death of Harold P. M.ifre of the Union college foot ball team. "I have not replied to Chancellor Mac Cracken's telegram," said President Eliot. I expect to write him a letter soon. I shall decline to take the action requested. I can not see why such action should come from me. It should come from the Board of Overseers or tho corporations." When asked whether he thought such a move nus contemplated, President Eiiut suid : "I know absolutely nothing about It. Mi. Storey (an overseer of Harvard), according ttf tho newspaper, is thinking of Introduc ing a motion to abolish the game. How ever, he denied to me that he had any such intention. He denied It to the news pupcrs too, but they published It, neverthe less." Favors Tnree Year Role. PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. S7.-Prof. W. B. Scott, chairman of Princeton's Athletic committee, said tonight in regard to Pennsylvania's proposals on foot ball: . I can only speak personally as one mem ber of the committee, but Hie new proposals will affect Princeton in only one particular and that is the one-year residence rule. All the other propositions are now being tn torced atrlctly. I cannot see that debanlng freshmen would do any good, unless It wi re accompanied by a three-year clause to keep a man from playing longer than that time. Unless this were done the evils would be transferred from the beginning of tne course to graduation when the athlete would be forced Into a professional sehoul so aa to use up his four years. With the time of playing limited to three years 1 would be In favor of the proposed one-year residence rule. One member of the committee refused to talk. DOAXE OX EDGE FOR (OMKEROHL n Crete Collegians Empect o Give Good Aeconat of Themselves. CRETE. Neb., Nov. 27 (8ecial. ) The Doane team started today od the iinal spin t for the last game of the season, with the Omaha Commercials on Thanksgiving day. The men cume out of the gtune with Ne braska In finer shape than Coach Fuhrer had even hoped for and today there is not a man on the team who Is not in the pink of condition. The team reached the low ebb of condition Just before the Nebraska gam", for the bruising game with St. Mary s in Kansas had resulted in a good many sore muscles. Captain Fuhrer, fullback. Right Halfback Mareah and Quarterback Hui4 were the worst hurt and everyone of them le now In condition. Fuhrer and Maresii In the backrleld and Graybiel, tight guard, were taken out of the game with Nebraska in the second half In order t- save tiiem for the (Jrnalia game Thanksgiving, which Coach Fuhrer seems to think will h a hard one. Should any of the regulars be hurt In that game Fuhrer has four first class men for substitutes in Bronson, the 2n3-pound Una man. and Taylor for the line and Dick inson and Parsons behind the line. These latter were the cause f much woe in the Nebraska swine after they went In In the aoond half and Parsons especially proved himself capable of making good galne against Nebraska. Manager Perry went to iranscends the census figures for 1 80!) by 36 per cent, and this after a lapse of only sit years. If there is no relapse from this high position that the'farmer now holds as a wealth producer, three years hence be may look back over the preceding decade, and, if he will add the annual figures of his wealth production, he will find that the farming clement, or about 35 per cent of the population, has produced an amount of wealth within these ten years equal to one half of the entire national wealth pro duced by toil and composed of the surplnses and savings of three, cen turies. Balance of Trade. During the fiscal year ended June SO, 1908, the exports of domestic farm products were valued at $?27.000,oOO, a loss of (b2.000.000 as compared with 1904 and JSl.OOO.OOO behind the flve-year average; although it was $332, 000,000 above the average of the five years from 1895 to lfOD'and $167,000.00 above he 1R90-1S94 average. Here the secretary says: "Hurlng the last sixteen years the domestic exports of farm products have amounted to $12,000,000,000, or $1,000,000,000 more than enough to buy all the railroads of the country at their commercial valuation, and this with mere surplus for which there was no demand at home." ' Imports of agricultural products, which were mostly noncompetitive, for the fiscal year ended June .10, 1905, were $554,000,000, or JI25. 000,000 more than the annusj average for the preceding five years. The net bal ance In favor of the farmer for the year is $285,000,000. During the sixteen years past the farmer has secured a balance of $3,635,000,000 to himself In his International bookkeeping, and out of this he has offset an adverse balance of $543,000,000 in the foreign trade in products other than agri cultural, and turned over to the nation from his account with other nations the sum of $5,002,000,000.

AMATKl II BILLI AHD TROPHY M ATCH I'oKBCnbura Wins First Contest from Gardener by Wide Margin. NEW YORK. Nov. 27 In the first of a series of six games which will decide the ownership of the Kagle trophy, emblematic of tne amateur billiard championship of Ann i li a, J. Ferdinand PogRcnburg of this city defeated KUwurd W. Gardner of Paa sah. N. J.. at the German Llederkranz club tonight hv a score of 3i to 155 points. Al though five men have a leg on this prize, onjy three are taking part In this tourna ment, the third player being Charles F.

Tomorrow night the Chicago player will meet Gardner and on Wednesday Conklin and Poggcnhurg will meet each other.

Computa tions based upon census information dis close the fact that farm products, to some extent obtained from other countries, con stitute ftrt.4 per cent of the total products, and 8. ft per cent of the total materials, and these Industries produce 3ivS per cent of all manufactured products snd use 42 per cent of all materlsls employe,! in manufacturing. At the same time these Industries using agricultural materlnV employe 37.S. per cent of all persons engaged In awennfactur Ing. and the capital of thepo 1U(istrlee Is 42.1 per cent of the capital of all manufac turing establishments. Resisted In absolute terms, during the last census year the farm products eni- 'loyed In manufactures were valued at 2,679.000,0(10; the value of all materials. In cluding the preceding amount, was $3,0s7. 000,000; and the products of the Industries using these materials were valued at $4.720,. OnO.OOO. These industries employed ?,154,O00 persons and had a capital or $4,132,000,000. Such are the enormous Interests, not en gaged In agriculture, but In Industries, that oould not maintain themselves without the farmer and his extraordinary productive ability. Influence on Banking;. The farmer has also become a bahker, says the secretary, and he proceeds to demonstrate his position by giving figures on the growth of national banks In the strictly agricultural sections of the country. On the matter of deposits the report says: In the north central states farmers have been depositing money In the banks until the rate of interest on deposits has fallen so low that they have diverted a large por tion of their savings to permanent Invest ment. In spite of the fact that the banks do not receive and keep all or most of the farmers' savings, the increase of bank de posits In agricultural states and larger re gions is most extraordinary. The following are some examples of the increase of the deposits In all banks In the agricultural states during the year ending June SO, 1906: In Iowa and South Dakota the increase was 14.9 per cent; In Nebraska, 13 5; In Kansas, 9.7; In North Dakota, 25. During the same time bank deposits In the great capital state of Massachusetts Increased 9.1 per cent. If a comparison is made with ISM, within the latest prolonged financial depression, the comparisons are still more striking. During the ten years from that year to June SO. 1905, the bank deposits of the United States, all banks Included, Increased 129.2 per cent. In comparison with this is the increase of the South Atlantic stales. quota to the above by having placed thousands of homeseekers Inning. His best runs were S4, 51, 47 and 24, and his average 15. The rules governing this contest are 9M points, 14-lnch balk line, two shots In. Gardner's highest runs were 29, 24, 24 and 13, with an average of 7 15-20. WITH THE BOWLERS. The Cudahys were too much for the Black Kats last night and took tinee straight games. The first contest was very even throughout, the Cudahys winning out by picking up some hard splits on the finish. The second was a runaway and the third never in doubt, after the first two frames. The black boys were Inclined to he rather despondent over the result, but the team has some first-class material that can win games from any of the teams.

For Individual states there are such In creases during the ten years as 190 9 per cent for Iowa. 2.",i.3 per cent for Kansas, 294 per cent for North Dakota and 35.7 per cent for South Dakota. The foregoing remarkable increases In bank deposits In agricultural states, as well as the Increase in the number of small country banks, are directly and Indirectly because of the profits that have come to the farmers from the operation of their farma. The man with the hoe has become the man with the harvester and the de positor and shareholder of the bank. Increase in Land Values. The change In farm value since the census of lOOO is snmmed up in the) following terms, detailed figures being given: With this nnderstanding it is found the cotton farms have increased In value $460,000,000, the most promi nent Increase among the states being Texas, with $115,000,000, while. Georgia stands second with $77,000, OOO and Mississippi third with $02, OOO.OOO. Therefore, it may be said that during the last five years the cot ton plantations have had six crops of cotton, one of these crops being a per manent investment and promising to pay a good return year by year. Hngar farms have increased in value $20,000,000, more than half of which is found in Louisiana and one-sixth in California. Hay and grain farms have such an immense acreage that the increase for them amounts to $2,000,000,000, three-fourths of which is in the north central states, and an even greater gain, or $2,2U3,0OO,0O0, was made by the live stock farms, nearly three fourths of this also being in the north central states. In tho case of farms having dairying as a specialty the in creased value was $:irlO,000,000; to bacco farms increased $57,000,000; rice farms, $3,!I00,000; fruit, $07, 000,000; vegetable farms, $113,000,- AND INCREASING values.
