that !t was the property of the government
It ai Indignantly denied that the legation
had been driven from Its iniarters hera'ise
of the failure of the Nlcaraguan govern

Word was received here tonight In Cen
tral American circles that the reports if
Zelayan victory over the Insurgent army
near Rama was .without the slightest
foundation In fact. It wivs declared that
there had been no fighting In the last few

The battle is said to have been a desper

One of he arrivals here, who is not a

No foreign newspapers are allowed to
enter Nicaragua at points in control of the

LINCOIjN. Dec. . (Ppf clal.) Foot bill
lettters were awarded to only fourteen
plnyers for services this fall by the Ne
braska athletic board at a special meelng
this afternoon. This Is the smallest num
ber of "N's" that has been given out In
Tho players who were honored are Cap
tain Beltier. Harry Ewlng, Lruls Hart.',
V. Shonka, LeRoy Temple, Johnny Jojin
son, II. Magor, Tard Wolcott, Tolt nitit
ley. Alfonso Sturteznegcer. Harvey Raih
bone, Vincent Hascall, Turf Frank and F.
Three games Minnesota, Kansas and
Iowa were selected as the "N" Contests
and all the players who participated In
these games were eligible for letters.
Sturtexnegger was not eligible under the
ruling that only the men who partlc patod
In the three big frames should te awarded
the coveted numeral, but he was voted
the letter becaure of his faithful service
to the team during the last three years.
He is a senior this year and would not
have another chance to get a letter.
A new system of awarding the letters
was adopted by the board at this meeting
and it will be put into operation next fall.
Under this new plan a player will have to
participate In at least thisu games played
with Chicago or Missouri Vall?y confer
ence elevens or will have to be recom
mended for his "N" by the captain, coach
and manger of the eleven In crdor- to got
a letter. The system r.ow In force simply
requires that am an play but one full half
of one of the big games of the fall.
Powe-r to Deny Letters.
One section of the new rules for grant
ing the letters gives the athletic boarj
power to deny, by a vote of nine members,
any man a letter. The board reserved
tO ItBAlf thl. '..;
,..,,0 imnvi leyuiremems rcr a
letter and yet do something that would
warrant the board In refusing to give him
the honor of wearing u letter.
In case a player Is Injursd so that he
cannot take part In three games of the
rail, although he would have done 10 had
he been In condition, the manger, captain
and coach have the rign; to recommend
him for a letter. In making this rule the
board had in mind the case of C. Jnhn.t
of Minnesota, who was iniured in th t -.t
big game of the season this fall, that bd
Ing the game with Nebraska, and wa ni
able to get into a game during the rest
of the season. Such a man as he, the
board declared, should haw' his letter; at
Minnesota Johnston was given his numeral.
"W" Men Klect Captain.
At this session the athletic hmrrf nrAe.
that the "N" men should elect a foot ball
........... .ui iiexi season s team at a meet
ing of the board to be held next Monday
evening. All the players will be com
manded to come before the board at that
time and ballot for a cantaln until- i.
selected. The members of the At,in
board have decided that the captain shall
ba elected next Monday evening, even If
the selection . haa to be done by the board
itself. According to the Coristltutlorl of the
board the1 letter players are allowed to bal
lot twice for a captain,, and then if they
fall to make a choice, the athletic board
selects a leader. Unless the players can,
agree on a captain in two ballots the
board will pick the leader.
Three candidates have announced them
selves as Beel Ing the position. They are
Ltroy Templo of TLexington, Harvy Rath
bone of Lincoln and V. Shonka of Able.
Temple is the only one of the this trio
who has ben on the 'varsity for two years.
He and Rathbonc are fraternity men and
Khanka is a "barb."
Of the fourten players who were awarded
letters today eleven are fraternity mon. It
they should unite on one candidate they
could easily elect him and there would be
no contest. The candidacy of Raihbono
and Temple, though, will dlvido the fra
ternity vote and there probably will be no
election on the ' first ballot next Mon
day. It Is now believed that the election will
no', develop Into a "frat"-"barb" fight, for
Khonka, the non-fraternity man, lias de
clared that he will no", make the race on
that issue. If he is not selected on the
first ballot he c'eclares he will withdraw.
There Is 'no bitter feeling in the campaign
this winter as there was a year ago, and
tho candidates are not making a deal of
noise. They are, though, going about the
matter In gumshoe fashion and there will
be nochance for any bad accusations. No
matter who is picked for next fall's leader
there Is certain to be a spirit of good feel
ing existing among all the players on the
world. The rrmtrh will be played In Bor

DALLAS, Tex.. Dec. 9. With his face
wrapped In woolen bandages and wearing
heavy fur gloves and tut overcoat, Barney
Oidfield drove hla 120-horscpower Bern
racer in thfe teeth of a Texas norther thii
afternoon and broke the fifty-mile world's
circular track record, which has stood for
over five years. He covered the half-century
in 47:18, as against the old mark of
4S:40!4, made by himself in Fresno, Cal., in
Oldfleld got Inside the previous record at
thirty miles, and broke every Individual
mark from thirty miles to fifty. Oldfield's
drive was most spectacular as the track
was frozen in places and the radiator of
his car was filled with alcohol as the only
preventative against freezing. At the fin
ish of the drive Oldfield's hands had to
bo pulled loose . from the steering wheel
by his assistant, having been affected by
the intense cold at so high a speed.

BOSTON, Dec. 9. That the republican
party has changed front and is now march
ing toward lower tariffs, in which move
ment the Payne tariff bill is but an Inci
dent, was the Interesting statement made
by Secretary of the Treasury Franklin Mac
Vcagh at the annual banquet of the Mass
achusetts Bunkers' association tonight.
Three hundred persons attended the ban
quet. Among the other speakers were
Genere E. Roberts, president of the Com
mercial National bank, Chicago, and Gov
ernor Eben S. Draper.
Secretary MacVeagh declared that unless
the bankers succeeded In adopting the pub
lic point of view Instead of the private
point of vision, they would lose an oppor
tunity to influence greatly the coming leg
islation on the subject.
That was all the secretary had to tn;.
on- currency, and he passed to a discus
sion of the tariff and the Payne law. He
said, in part:
"In considering the results of recent
tariff legislation, it Is indespensible, in my
judgment, to keep two Important factors In
mind. The first is that the Payne law Is
but an Incident in a tariff revision move
ment, by and within the republican party,
sanctioned and undertaken by the party
itself and advocated by President Taft, in
office and out of office, and by President
McKiniey with almost his last words. The
second Is that It Is the resultant effect of
the movement which It Is Important to
take into account and estimate, and not,
essentially, anything else.
'There In one great fact that makes a
new tariff epoch. That fact Is that the re
publican party has changed Its front. It
has recognized changed conditions.
"It Is true that the Payne bill does not
contain as much downward revision as the
great majority of the republican parly had
wished. It did not contain as ryich of that
revision as the president wished. But the
Payne bill, as It passed the house, was an
Intentional and avowed revision downward.
As It now stands It Is a practical con
firmation of the new policy of the repub
