dispatches y nothing of counter measures being taken, or of the attitude of
the other regiment of the regular garrison. ' Mutineers and riotous sailors
parading the city with the regular flags, without interference, may be pos
sible as was the case at Odessa now that the gun of the battleship Patereli
mon (formerly the Kniai Potemkine) and other veels of the fleet dominate tha
situation and prevent active measure being taken to quell the mutiny, even if
Admiral Chouknin ha efficient local troop at his disposal. The dispatches
aay nothing of the reaona for the mutiny or the demand of the mutineers, and
no details are obtainable at the admiralty, the conjecture being advanced that
demands for better food, and the release of the reservists might partly be re
sponsible. The force of the commissioned officer at Sebastopol Is now only
about one officer to over 400 men, and many of these are utterly incapable. The
revolutionary ferment, in ipite of the efforts of the officers, is known to have
affected a portion of the enlisted men in many of the regiments, and the Se
bastopol mutiny may be a spark necessary to et the flame of widespread re
volt. . 1

Presented for Sijnatures,
Wsshington, Nov. 23. At the final
meeting of the board of consulting en
gineers, the outline of the report which
the board is to make to the Isthmian
Canal Commission was discussed and a

A minority report, representing the
view of those opposed to a sea level
canal may be submitted to the commis

not yet beea determined.
The next meeting of the foreign mem

FOOTBALL HAS OUTGROWN
San Francio, Nov. 23. Presi-
dent Benjamin Ide Wheeler, of
the University of California in
an address to the students yes-
terday, discussed football and
used very plain words. Among 4
other thing, he declared the
promised reforms had never
come. He said: "The game haa
outgrown its intention. The
trouble with it is that it ia too
highly specialized for the aver-
sge student. Men have to be in
e an artificial stage of preservation
to play the game aa it is played
today. I never objected to it on 4
0 the ground that it Is rough, but
that it ia not in the sphere of
usefulness for the ordinary stu-
dent The great trouble is that
the game is in the hands of a
select appointed, self organized
committee of rules. I refer to
a Mr. Camp and his assistants.
They have promised reform but
v have done nothing. Now college
a president have lost patience. We
will revise the rules ourselves
and the changea we make will O
0 be radical"
