THE BEE: OMAHA. FRIDAY, DECEMDKR '3. 1000. B)ARD OPPOSES POLITICS Cornhuikers Casting About to Select Foot Ball Captain. SHONKA AND TEMPLE NAMED lame of Fntrttf Feeling Mani fested, bat .trlfr Mar n rkrrkril Mrl( ef Csa ldates. LINCOLN, Dec. 1 (Special.) It ha de Y'iop'd during the aet two days that there will be it leant two candidates for the reptalney of the iniO Cornhuskcr foot ball eleven. Only a few day ago It was taken a a certainty that Ix-roy Temple of Lexington would he the unanimous choice of the letter men for next season's lewder. Now S. V. Shonka, A l-Misotir1 Valley center. Is mentioned as a candidate for the place, and It Is fearoil that the election will (ret Into politics, as the, one did last fall, when Collins and Frum sought the captaincy and Beltzer waa elected as a compromise candidate. Among the undergraduates of the unlver lty there Is a fellng that Temp'e Is en titled to the captaincy, because of his service to the team; yet Shonka la a mighty popular fellow with all students, and his friends are pushing him for the captaincy. Temple Is a fraternity man and Shonka In a nonfrnternlty student; being so considered, although he Is a tnemher of Acacia, a university Masonic fraternity; and there Is a vague rumor to the effect that Phonka la being pushed for the captaincy In opposition to Temple because the latter Is a' "frat" man. Sev eral of Shonka'a friends, however, declare It Is absurd to even hint that Shonka Is being "run" n an rntl-fraternlty candi date. They are barking him, they say. because they believe him to be the best man for the position. The Nebraska Athletic board, In event that the captaincy gets too deep Into po'l tlcg, will taJce steps to put an end to the wire pulling. The entfre board Is sat on preventing a repetition of last season's disgraceful election, and may even go so far as to take the selection of a captain out of the hands of the players. Too Mach ft port Politics. A prominent faculty member of the bocrd made the following statement this afternoon regarding the situation: "Nebraska athletics cannot stand another disgraceful election like the one of last aeason. That hurt our foot ball eleven of this fall and caused one good player to tay away from the gridiron this season. If this election gets Into politics we will have to take Immediate steps to get It out. There seems to be no quenlon as to whom should be elected captain this fall; one of the two candidates has earned the honor and the players have no right, because of personal considerations, to keep him from getting the position." The first step the athletic board will take toward preventing a bad fight over the captaincy will be to call an early meeting for the foot ball men to select next fall's leader. It Is thought that delay In the election will give the rival forces time to do a great deal of wire pulling and to create much 111 feeling. A year ego mem bers of the team were on n?vcral occa sions close to fistic encounters, and Ne braska's foot ball eleven suffered much from lack of good feeling created at that time. A new system of electing the foot ball captain Is to. be adopted soon that will do away with all chances for wire pulling And will permit the best man for the place to get It. Just what this new plan will be has not been : agreed upon as yet. The election of this fall has been delayed until the season's letter men are p'eked. Thr athletlo board has been waiting to adopt a new system for granting letters and It Is not likely that the letters will be awardrd until next week. All letter men are allowed to vote for captain. Temple, whom the majority of the stu dents think is the logical man for the place, has played two years on the CornT husker eleven. He la a tackle and la rated as on of the best In the west. He was a real star on this fall's team. Shonka, the other candidate, played his first year for the Cornhuskers this fall, being stationed at center. He waa a brtl I ant man at that position, and one of the best that ever wore a Nebraska uniform. Ha still has two years of foot ball to play, while Temple has but one. Both players are popular with the students and the elec tion of either will be satisfactory to under graduates, though Temple Is thought to be deserving of the honor. WITH T1IK RUWLRR9.

SAN FKANCISC0 MAY BE LOCATION Date of Contest Between Jeffries and Johnson Probably Will lie July 4, 1910, Says the Sac resefal Bidder. NEW TORK, Dec. 2. The world's cham pionship fight between James J. Jeffries and Jack Johnson will be held in San Francisco before a club organised by "Tex." Rickard of Ely, Nev., and Jack Gleascn, the .fight to take place probably on July 4, 1910. The bid made by Rickard and Gleason of a purse of 1101,000 and the contestants to take 664 per cent of the moving picture receipts, was accepted by representatives of Johnson and Jeffries this afternoon. "Tex." Rickard said today that If the fight were awarded to him ana Gleason It probably would be held In San Fran cisco. 'My bid Is for Utah, Nevada or Califor nia," he said, "but in Utah it Is not at all oertaln that we can hold the fight. In Ne vada, where the laws will permit, we can not get a crowd large enough to pay the guaranteed purse, so that leaves San Fran cisco with practically a clear field. The successful bid provides that the fight shall take place in California, Utah or Nevada on a date to be set later, but It was stated that without doubt the con test would take place In San Francisco. In view of the fact that James Coffroth, manager of the Mission Athletic club at Colma, Cal., controls certain patents on moving pictures, It was thought Rickard and Gleason would likely enter Into some arrangement with him whereby they could have the fight take place In the Colma arena. T. J. McCarey of Los Angeles and Eddie Graney of San Francisco made a vigorous protest against the acceptance of Rlckard's bid, declaring their bids were higher and should have boen accepted. They asserted that Rlckard's bid had been accepted In advance and that other bidders Blood no chance. The final articles for the fight will be drawn up by lawyers and signed In Ho boken, N. J., tomorrow. 'Frisco May Change Ordinance. SAN FRANCISCO, Deo. 2. The news from New York that the Jeffries-Johnson world's championship fight would be held In San Francisco, although not unexpected, has caused keen satisfaction among ring followers In this city. Already speculation is rife as to the location of the battle ground. The laws of California permit finish fights, but contests within the dlty are so regulated by the municipal authorities that only twenty-round exhibitions can be given. There Is a belief, however, that owing to the tfemendous importance of the cham pionship battle pressure may be brought to bear on the Incoming administration to waive all restrictions and grant permission to the proomters to hold an unlllmted con test In the city of San Francisco. In such an event It ia generally understood the base ball park of the Pacific Coast league, on Valencia street, near Fourteenth, will be tho scene of the battle. On the other hand, there 1b an undercur rent of opinion that an arrangement has been effected with Coffroth, In which case it Is almost certain that the fight will be taken to Coffroth's Mission Street arena. litre unlimited contests are permitted without molestation, but the arena would have to be enlarged.

Because of con fusion among foreign postal authorities over the number of stamps used on letters reaching them from the United States, the Red Cross Christmas stamps and other "charity" stumps on mall packages will have to be UBed with utmost discretion. Five foreign governments have placed re strictions upon the use of such stamps. Four of the countries Great ltritaln. Or ange River Colony, houth Rhodesia and tho Transvaal refuse to admit to their malls packages bearing such stamps, and Germany admits packages bearing the stamps If they be affixed to the back of the letter or parcel, but not If they are placed on tbo face of It. Concerning the matter, the Postoffice de partment today Issued a bulletin saying that articles liable to be refused admit tance to any of the countries named above on account of bearing charity stamps will be returned to the sender. If known; If sender be not known, such articles will be sent to the division of dead letters. All articles bearing Red Croes Christmas stamps for transmission In the Interna tional malls, the department cautions, should bear on the covers the full address of the sender. The Red Cross authorities have placed on sale throughout the country millions of the "Christmas stamps," the proceeds of the sale of which are to be devoted by the society to the work of fighting consump tion. The stamps will be good in the United States, but care will .have to be exercised In their use on letters or packages for for eign countries. Direct appeal to the rulers of the various governments to waive the rulings against the stamps was at first contemplated, but Charles L. Magee, secretary of the Red Cross, declared tonight that the society will content Itself with warning purchasers of the stamps through the Red Cross agents against their use on packages des tined for foreign countries. The loss to the Red Cross fund will be small as a result of the ruling. The sale of the stamps up to tonight la greatly In excess of whet It was last year. Already 48 000.000 have been purchased, and the so ciety expects that the last of the 60.000.000 It caused to be printed for the present Christmas season will be gone before De cember 26.
