FOR HIGH SCHOOL
Special to THE TIMES.
Douglas, Ariz., Dee. 5. - In a very
hotly contested foothall game the El
Paso high school team deieated the
local eleven of the high school, ll to 0.
El Paso punted from the middle of
the field after fifteen minutes of play,
and the Douglas quarter fumbled the
bail. Young, in his new position,
picked it tip and ran fifteen yards for
the only touchdown in the game. The
half ended with the hall in El Paso’s
possession on Douglas’ 20-yard line.
Field Goa! Kicked.
It took El Paso twenty minutes of
the second half to get the ball on
Douglas’ 25-yard line, from where
Worthington placed it square be-
tween the posts for four points more.
Douglas showed marked improvement
over their performance at El Paso.
They pierced El Paso's line for long
gains, and executed several forward
passes, but were very faulty In hand-
El Paso played well, but were woe-
fully without ginger. H. Grady, Young,
Newmau and Worthington deserve
special mention; also Kllburn for his
running back punts.

Soo City in Collision?
North Sydney, <\ n. Dec. The
mystery surrounding the fnie of tie
steamer Hon CMtv from < InMe/o tr»
Texas was intern-dlied today by the
finding of a number of life belts at
(’ape Ray hearing the name “S. S.
Stanley.’* The belts drifted ashore
with similar ones marked "Soo City"
and this circumstance has led to liic
theory that the lake b< . ? was possibly
mink in collision. It dso suggested
that the life-bolt's mocked "S. S. Stan-
ley" may have bee1 ifchased at sec-
ond hand by the owners of the Soo
City wlun she was carrying excur-
sionists tm l ake Michigan.

IN FIGHT WITH LONDON POLICE
Organist at Big Meeting Tried to Soothe Hysterical
Sisterhood by Playing “What Can the Matter
Be?”, But Suffragettes Rioted.
Condon, Dec. 5.—The suit between
(be suffragists and suffragettes, tb"
latter being the term generally used
to describe the militant section of
women agitators who believe in riots
and attacks on cabinet ministers as
the quickest means of attaining the
ballot for their sex, was further
widened this afternoon through a
fierce demonstration indulged in by
the suffragettes at Albert hall against
David Lloyd-George, chancellor of the
Women Want Deed*, Not Word*.
The chancellor was addressing a
suffrage meeting under ihe auspices
of the Woman* Liberal association.
He had hardly got beyond announcing
that he was present to make known
the government's intention regarding
the problem of woman suffrage when
a great uproar broke out. Strident
voices from all part* of the hall
shrieked: “We want deeds, not
The stewards of the hall, and there
were 350 on hand to deal with the
anticipated trouble, at once moved
down the aisle toward the women who
had interrupted the speaker, to eject
them. They found the women chained
to their seats. There then began a
confused struggle, but finally the
chains were cut- and the suffragettes
Played "What Can the Matter Be?”
But the numbers of the disordely
seemed to increase rather than dimin-
ish. Some of the women were armed
with whips, and they repelled vigor-
ously every attempt to eject them
There were fierce tussles every few
moments in different part* of the hall,
and every time Mr. Lloyd-George
made an attempt to speak his voice
was drowned by mingled groans and
