worth Watts Klffh, 7.
Before a solid moss of 4.01 cheering,
yelling- rooters, who crowded Into the
grandstand and swarmed out onto the
field, Omaha High school, fighting for
Mood every minute of tho time, decisively
crushed every hope of western Nebraska
high schools by defeating North Platte
High school, which Is acknowledged as
representative of the average strength of
western high schools this year. Around
the ends, through the thick of the line
and by means of long forward passes,
the" Omaha boys ripped the North Platto
xquad asunder and triumphantly scram
bled over the goal line for seven touch
downs, which, with the five goals after
touchdowns by Gardiner, gave Omaha a
Brand total of forty-eeven points, while
North Platte was forced to be content
with one lone touchdown, which netted a
meager seven.
With the exception of the first five
minutes of play the western team was
outclassed from tip to tip. Shortly after
the Initial whistle Ryan plunged his way
across tho goal line for a touchdown
and McWilllams added qne more point by
kicking the goal. But North Platte was
doomed to defeat and scored no more.
Score Tied by Omaha.
Omaha tcd the score In the first quar
ter, when two forward passes, one twenty-five
yards, Platz to Klein, and ono
twenty yards, PlaU to Hughes, and twaf
short plunges through the line netted I
Omaha its first score.
Two more touchdowns were scored In
the second period. After Berry inter
cepted sV forward pass which gave Omaha
the bail In Ml. ti&ie of Hie field, Plats
hurled a forward pass to Hughes, who
evading" cv"errNorttf,F!MTo" tacT7
printed over the! goal line. A minute later
a twenty-yard run by Berry, a fifteen
yard penalty for liorth Platte, a twelve
yard run. by Kelly and a fifteen-yard
smash by Plats made the score at the
end pt the first half 21 to 7, with the
margin going to Omaha,
In the third quarter a forward pass
which Platz hurled to Hughes within two
minutes after play was started allowed
the; fleet end to carry the ball forty yards
to North Platto's twenty-yard line. A
second forward pass, Piatt to Hughes,
ave Hughes an apportunlty to make
the fourth touchdown. A few minutes
later Platz picked up tho. ball and ran
nround left end for forty-five yards for
a touchdown.

After sce-sawing back and forth for a
Xiw minutes another pf the deadly passes
from Plats to Hughes was attempted
successfully and Hughes ran thirty yards
for a touchdown. Omaha worked the ball
to tho ten-yard line In tho last quarter
and both North Plalte and Omaha fld
died around for some little time, during
which much discussion was raised be-1
tween tho two teams and Rufcrco
Chauner, After much "rag chewing" play
was allowed to resume without Inter
ruption and Hughes ran around left end
for tho last touchdown.
After the first quarter It was clearly
Omaha's game. Fighting . every single
minute. Platz ripped through the North
Platte line, a line which had been her
alded as Impenetrable, Just as, a roaring
torrent brushes aside the puny 'bulwarks
of a spanning bridge. Battered and
frayed, the lino "which had withstood the
attacks of the mightiest, crumbled be
fore the vicious attacks of that one battle-scarred
hero, Plrttz, who brooked no
opposition when he lowered his head and
started his terrible rushes.

Four Million-Dollar
Fund for T.M. C,A,
is Raised on Time
NEW YORK. Nov. 27. -This was a true
Thanksgiving day for the Young Men's
and Young Women's Christian associa
tions of this city. Jubilant as they were
of having established a World's record
In fund raising by obtaining more than
$4,000,000 within fifteen days. The an
nouncement as reported last night that
the total of $1,002,501 had been raised was
followed today from some lnterestlngde
talis of tho unique campaign. The gift
of the odd dollar of the over-subscribed
amount came at the Inst moment from
the Janitor of a downtown building who
sent It with the following simple and
earnest, It ungrammatlcal, note:
I see by tho papers this morning that
you have not got your $1,000,000 and so
there Is nothing else for me to do than
help It. This morning a lady gave mo
one dollar for a turkey; then 1 thought
that I have to be without turkey and
send that one dollar for your fund. I
am a Janitor that loves the lost. God
bless you.
It Is shown that 17.241 senarato con
tributors gave so generously that their
gifts alone totalled $1,175,000. John D.
Rockefeller was the chief contributor,
having given $500,000. Cleveland H.
Dodge waa a close second with gifts of
$375,000. A number of rich persons elbthed
their philanthropy with modesty and the
total of anonmous gifts was more thati
Miners and Owners
Unable to Reach a
Temporary Truce
DENVER, Colo., Nov. 27.-Whcther tho
conference which adjourned at 1:30 o'clock
this morning without reaching even a
temporary truce, would be called to
gether to mako any further efforts tp
terminate tho Colorado' coal strike, was
not decided definitely when Governor
Ammdns reached his office early today.
The governor was reticent as to his
future plans, although it was believed
that cither he would outline a plan for
further conference or orfer recommenda
tions to the committees based on tho
facts secured at yesterday's hearing.
While yesterday's Conference brought
no tangible agreement, It was felt today
that the fact that reports of the operators
and miners discussed their differences
fully and frankly was an encouraging
sign. Tho operators stated they would
grant demands of their employes for
check weighmon, right to trade at any
store, board at any place, secure the ser
vices of any physician, recognize enforce
ment of the state mining law.
The crux of the situation still is recog
nition of the miners' union, which the
operators declare they would not grant.

rious so-called central bodies which grant
recognition to dual and seceding unions.
John T, Taggart of the International
Union of Wood, Wire and Metal Lathers
made a hot speech In opposition, vir
tually telling the department that his
union would not be bound by the orders
of "the proposed council. He was an

W. J. McSorley. a co-delegate with
Taggart, declared that Taggart was with

Anti-Snuff Law
is Declared Valid
BISMARCK, N. D., Nov. 27.-The
North Dakota law prohibiting the salo
ot snuff, passed at the last session of
the legislature Is constitutional. The
state supreme court so decided In a de
cision handed down lata last night.
The plea that the law singles out a

others the court says, Is unsound as
"no criminal should be allowed to escape
punishment because someone else is
mora of a criminal or more dangerdus to
society that he."

to take Juarez from him. He believes
that other rebel forces have Intercepted

would be able to capture the entire com
mand or annihilate It.
Today was an off day In Juarez. Villa
and most of his officers attended the
opening' of the Juarez Jockey club. All
tho dead had been burled and the
wounded placed In temporary hospitals in
Juarez. The rebel soldiers were given
clothing and ammunition today prepara

Oil Field In Da Hirer.
WASHINGTON, Nov. S7.-Whlle Rear-
Admiral Fletcher has obtained Informal
pledges from tho constitutionalist general
Agullar, .that there should be no Interfer
ence with foreign oil properties about
Tuxpam, there Is some concern as to
whether that Is broad enough to cover
the rather critical situation at Tampleo
State department officials will feet easier
when they iiear of tho arrival of the ad
miral, on his temporary flagship, Rhode
Island, at Tampleo,
The battleships Nebraska and Michigan
and the gunboat Wheeling already jftre at
Tampleo and their commanders 'have
been instructed to look after American,
British and other foreign interests.
It Is thought at the Navy department
thrre is little dahger 6f" action. 'by coh

The real danger, It any exists, would
lie In Interference with pipe lines running
twenty-five miles Into the Interior from
Tampleo. Naval officers estimate thut
It would require & small army to Protect
the wells and pipe lines, Tho lifting of
a cap from one of the gushers and the
Ignition ot the- rushing streams ot oil
might carry widespread disaster down to
the coast.
Rear Admiral Fletcher It Is expected
will undlcrtake first to get into commun
ication with Insurgent leaders near
Tampleo and induce them to respect the',
pledges given by General Agullar.
