Dec. 21. t8peclal.)-8ena-tor 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."

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.

The board also put the seal upon' the mouths of Chief Donahue and Captain Huse when Mr. Thomas aakud them regarding Sunday opening. The attorneys objected to the question as being "Irrelevant and im material" and Chairman Broatch promptly sustained the objections. George Brunnenkant. who runs a saloon at $17 South Seventeenth street, said he had been at his saloon on a Sunday upon which Detective Oavlen said he had bought liquor there. Tha witness said he had gone home hefore noon' and left a porter there to clean up. He swora he hud told the porter not to Mel) anything, but he did not know whether he had followed his instructions, thougli the porter was acting as bartender in those . days. ' "What were your cash sales on that Sun day?" asked Thomas. The allied attorneys objected in chorus nod Chairman Broatch sustained the objec tion. A dozen different ways Mr. Thomas Smith says the corner will not be sold at any price. P. B. Myer. president of the Myer-DUlon company, which occupies the corner, said when asked concerning the deal that his company had stood ready for some time to buy the corner at a reasonable price, but he had been given to understand that It was not for sale.

The marriage of Mary Tudor to I.outs of Franca was one of the strokes of Wolsley political genius and added much to the ! prestige of the throne of Henry VIII, but the marriage of the widow of Louis to Charles Brandon, un untitled gentleman of England, was a triumph for the love of a woman ior a man. The house of Tudor whs founded In much the same way, when the widow of an English king married an untitled Welshman . because he was the nmn she lovecl. Therefore Mary Tujor'a action may be ?ald to b! an atavistic exhi bition. Charles Major has surrounded tho rplsode with a glamor of romance that is truly delightful, and with the assistance of Paul Kester has prepared for the stage a drama that tells the story as completely and In as charming a manner as did the novel.
