Twenty candidates for foot ball honors

mada by CpacU Milter to tho. students of
Crelgbton university Monday. .Miller has
been dissatisfied with, the manner In
which candldatea are coming out for the
foot ball team, there being only about
twenty in uniform each night, so he
visited all the professional departments
Monday. At each of the law, medical,
dental and pharmacy departments, he
made speeches to student gatherings, urg
ing all those who could possibly do so,
to tako the field. He asked that all stu
dents who weighed over ISO pounds don
uniform, whether they had any ex
perience at the college gamo or not, and
that all who weighed less and had played
before, should get Into the harness.
That Minor's appeal did not go un
heeded, was evidenced by the fact that
about double the usual number were In
suits. No more of the veterans have re
turned,, however, and the task confront
ing Miller Is a difficult one.

Important Amendment Mnde to Ile
WASHINGTON, Sept. 16.-Wlth de
tailed consideration of tho administration
currency bill in the program progressing
more rapidly than democratlo leaders
Mad hoped, the banking committee today
agreed on an amendment by Represen
tative BulKcley of. Ohio to permit banks
.unlimited rediscount privileges with fed
eral reserve banks.
wopresentatlves Rulkeley, Glass and
Fhelan contended that to limit the re
discount of banks to the amount of their
capital stock would defeat the Jnaln pur
poses of the bill to alltfw ample means
for securing currency on commercial
paper In times of stress.
Representatlvo Toung, republican, North
Dakota, proposed an amendment to allow
all banks no matter what tholr capital
to enter tno system. It was rejected. 81
Progressive Leader Murdock offered a
voluminous amendment embracing recom
mendations of the Pujo money trust fcom-mltreo-
of the' last congress, including a
prohibition against interlocking direc
torate, Chairman Glass contended that
the amendment had no place on the bill
and r$ad a statement from Samuel Un
tormyer, counsel fpr the. Pujo. committee,
setting forth that currency legislation
should not bo complicated by considera
tion of" the Pujo recommendations.
Speaker Clark took the floor to urge that
the bill be passed as speedily as possible.
The Murdock amendment was beaten, 61
Representative Undberg proposed to
allow state banks to enter the system Ir

tried to block the postponement on the
ground that the writ had been obtained

an affidavit from a newspaper . man
quoting Thaw's counsel as saying this
biit he was unwilling to press the matter
after counsel for Thaw had assured tho
court that the application-or tho writ had
been entirely regular.
"What do you propose to do then?" In
sisted the Judge.
"The Immediate question," continued
tho court, "Is whether tho proceedings
