John Hughes of Williamsburg, who has
been the father of the anti-pass bills In
troduced In the legislature during the last
six years, said oday that he took no
stock whatever In the reports that tho
railroads would not oppose an antl-pasa
bill at this session of the legislature.
"When I Introduced my first bill In the
house six years ago they said the railroads
had gotten me to Introduce the bill," said
Senator Hughes today, "and yet the bill
waa killed and that, too, with railroad
Influence. The railroads will fight It again
at this session, as they did at the last.
1 am not ready to say whether I think the
bill haa a better show to be enacted Into
law at this session or not, but there will
be opposition from the railroads, there Is
no doubt of that."

Family Recommends the Abolition of
All Intercollegiate ,
NEW YORK. Dec. ll.-The Columbia uni
versity faculty today receded from Ita po
sition of withholding the results of tha
meeting of the university council on Tues
day to consider abolishing foot ball and
tonight the proceedings of the council wera
published. The outcome exceeded anything
that the undergraduates expected, for not
only wan foot ball definitely abolished at
Columbia, but President Butler waa reo
ommendfd by the council to take atepa to
eliminate all Intercollegiate sport at the In
stitution. This means. If Dr. Butler follows tho
recommendation that waa made, no more
Columbia teams ever will be seen on tha
Intercollegiate field In any line. The plan
Is that all athletic exercises hereafter shall
be confined to the various classes and de
partments. What the council recommended to Presi
dent Butler is included among resolutions
purporting to deal with the immediate
questions of foot ball only. . It gives tha
president tha right "of substituting, as far
aa possible, competition in sports among
tho students at Columbia In the place of
intercollegiate competitions."
Failing this, tha right la given of re
stricting the latter, with the exception of
rowing, to the home grounds of the Co
lumbia teams.
The sentiment among the teams who saw
this resolution tonight Is that inter
collegiate sport is doomed at Columbia.
