Tale went down to defeat before the men of Princeton today In the annual football gamo on Yale field, by a score of 11 to C The contest, which was one of the most spectacular ever witnessed on Tale's grid Iron, was stubbornly fought throughout. T'ntU the last five minutes of play, when Dewltt the Princeton Captain, kicked a marvelous goal from placement, and broko the tied score of C to 6, the result was In doubt. Tale pado one touchdown, from which a goal was kicked. Princeton equalled Tale's record, and added a goal from placement. At the end of the first half the score was tied, and close observers looked for a Tale victory, but the New Haven men were unable to get the plg s'Mn over the line again, while Dewltt's kicking ability gave to his team a vic tory. "While Princeton deserved to win, Tale deserved to lose, for Princeton's scores wero practically the direct results of Tale's fumbling. Tale's small score, more over, was due to lumbllng equally as fatal. "Within. 14 minutes from the time play began. Tale had torn through Princeton's line consistently and had sent Hogan across the line for a touchdown. Prince ton could not cope with Tale's stone-wall defense, and the play was largely in Or ange territory. Yale Makes Bad Fumble. Tale followed up her first advantage and again pressed toward the Tigers' goal line. A fumble gave the ball to Princeton when Tale was on the verge of crossing the line Jer another score. Again Tale pounded Princeton's line for short but consistent gains, and again Tale was within striking distance. The Tale quarterback, with the game well in hand, apparently decided to save his men, and signaled for an attempt at a goal from the field. Mitchell dropped back and fumbled the ball on Princeton's 20-yard line. The visitors broke through. Dewltt snatched the ball from the ground. and, protected 'by flno inteference, ran the length of tho field for a touchdown. Vet terleln kicked the goal, and the score stood even at 6 at the end of the first half. In the second half, as in the first. Tale's Superiority of offense was apparent. Twice Captain Hafferty's men rushed the ball with irresistible force toward the Orange goal line, and twice, with touchdowns in bight, the sons of Tale fumbled grievous ly. Again the backs hurled themselves through the opposing line, only to lose their last hope of victory through hold ing in the line, which cost Tale 20 yards and tho surrender of the ball. Battle Is Waged Furiously. The battle was waged furiously, and the Talo men were the first to show the ef fects of the struggle. Princeton resort ed to tho kicking game, and with but five minutes to play, another Talo fumble placed Tale in serious trouble near her own goal line. Luckily for Tale, one of her own men fell on the ball, but Bow man, the Talo back, was forced to kick from behind his own goal line. He punted well to Tale's 42-yard line. "Vetterleln, who was playing back for Princeton, caught the ball, and with great presence of mind heeled the catch for a kick from placement. "With the score still at 6 to , the great crowd was breathless wbilo iewltt prepared to try for goal at o, slight angle. The distance seemed for bidding, but Dewltt was superbly equal to the occasion, and shot the ball between the goal posts in masterly style, thereby insuring Princeton its first victor' in foot ball over Tale since 1S99. Tho game afforded something of an anomaly in view of tho fact that Tale, the dofeated team, gained tho greater distance both in kicking and in rushing. Mitchell, the Tale back, outpunted De wltt unmistakably. Indeed, Princeton's captain apparently had an off-day. He punted poorly, and three times failed dis mally In attempts at drop-kicking. In rushing Tale was much superior. Prince ton, however, was able to handle the ball moro cleverly, and was never slow to take advantage of Tale's mlsplays. Play is Clean Throughout. The play was clean throughout, and no penalties for roughing wero Imposed. Tale was penalized four times for off-side play P or holding. Princeton escaped punish ment of this kind. Princeton played 13 men, while for Tale three men gave way to sub stitutes. The weather, unpromising early in the day, cleared beforo the game began, and throughout the afternoon was all that could be desired. Nearly 30,000 spectators watched the game. A summary of the work of the teams showed plainly that Tale outplayed Princeton both at rush ing and kicking. Princeton gained 61S yards on IS kicks, while Tale gained 652 yards on 16 kicks, all from downs. In rushing, Princeton gained 129 yards in 54 rushes to Tale's Zl& yards from 63 rushes, all from downs. On tho other hand. Tale was penalized 50 yards during the game for off-side play, while Prince ton was not subjected to a single penalty from start to finish. The line-up: Tale. Position. Princeton.

Length of halves 23 minutei. PITIFUL DEFEAT FOR HARVARD Dartmouth Outclasses Her and Vins by Eleven to Nothing. CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 14. A defeat more pitiful than any recalled b3- the friends of Harvard, and one In which there was not a feature to give comfort to the undergraduates of the university, was administered to the Harvard eleven by Dartmouth this afternoon. The final score was 11 to 0 in favor of the New Hampshire college team. Harvard displayed great weakness. Fumbling and the Instability of Har vard's defense were most apparent, and with the possible'exceptlon of A. Marshal everj' man in the line was fairly out played by his Dartmouth opponent. Even in punting. Harvard was outclassed. Har vard's 'only chance to defeat Tale next week has been thought to be In the snap piness of her play, but this feature was markedly absent today. INDIANS DOWN THE QUAKERS. Pennsylvania Showed a Lack of Judg ment in Not Tieing the Score. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 14. In a game marked by fumbles and penalties, the Carlisle Indians today defeated the Uni versity of Pennsylvania by the score of 16 to 6. The Indians scored a touchdown and kicked a field goal In tho first half, and each team scored a touchdown In the second half from which goals resulted. Pennsylvania probably played her poor est game of the season in the first half. Quarterback Johnson, of the Indians, ran his team perfectly, and his variation of plays completely mystified tho Quakurs. In the second half, Pennsylvania out played its opponents at all points, and that it did not at least tie the score was because of lack of judgment. Harvard Freshmen Defeat Yale. CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 14. For tho tenth consecutive time, the Harrard freshmen defeated tho Tale freshmen at football today by a score of 17 to 6. Har vard was the better team in every de partment of the game. , Othcr Eastern Scores. At Chicago Northwestern 0, Notre Dame 0. At Champaign, III. Minnesota 32, H1I- nols 0. At Columbus, O.

It is said that the famous New Orleans bull clique which dictated prices on cotton to the entire world last Summer has given place to a new, much stronger and better organized pool, with almost unlimited re sources. It was currently rumored among the members of the Cotton Exchange after already made arrangements to take about 150,090 bales of cotton on December con tracts, and It will not wait for notices to be issued in that option, but will demand the actual cotton. CRANK SEEKS G0VEBN0B. Armed Man Is Arrested In the Colo rado State House. DENVER, Nov. 14. A man giving his name as John Otto was arrested this afternoon at the State House while at tempting to obtain access to Governor Peabody's private office. He was armed, and it is believed by the officers making tho arrest that he is the author of a half dozen letters threatening the life of the Governor and fixing 3 o'clock this afternoon as tho time for carrying out the threat After a desperate resistance Otto was disarmed and lodged In the county jail. He Is thought to be a crank or an anarchist ID IE Roosevelt SeasOurLand laws Weed Changes. FRAUDS MADE TOO EASY Richards, Pinchot and Newell to Propose Reforms. WESTERN MEN CANNOT AGREE This Leads President to Ask Heads of Departments to Formulate Leg islation He Can Recom mend In Message. OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, "Wash ington, Nov. 14. After consultation with Senators -and Representatives from al most ever public land state in the "West, President Roosevelt has concluded that the time has arrived when the administra tion must take a positive stand on tho question of repeal or modification of the public land laws- He has been impressed with the fact that the public land question has become the leading issue throughout the "West, and that there Is a popular clamor for radical changes in the existing statutes. At the same time he finds a great di versity of opinion among "Western men as to what changes should be made. "While some Senators andfRepresentatives with whom he has talked during the post two weeks maintain that tho present laws are adequate, if they are properly enforced, others go to the extreme of recommend ing the absolute repeal of all but the straight homestead act. The majority, however, advocate modification of the timber and stone, desert land and com mutation homestead Jaws, but cannot agree among themselves as to what forms these modifications should take. The President wishes to deal with tho public land question in his forthcoming message in a way that will tend to bring about concerted action at the approach ing regular session of Congress and re sult in legislation that will correct the most flagrant abuses committed under the present laws. In view of the con flicting recommendations that have been made to him, he hesitates to declare, on his own responsibility, In favor of any specific form of legislation. In order that he may deal with this question wisely, yet conservatively, the President has called for tho personal views of Commissioner Richards, of tho General Land Office; Gifford Pinchot, of the Forestry Bureau, and F. H. Newell, of tho Geological Survey, all men thor oughly familiar with tho public land sit uation, and men in whoso judgment the President has great confidence. If those three men can agree among themselves as to what legislation is demanded, and can point out the exact way In which the objectionable laws can be modified In tho public interest, their recommendations! will be taken, as the basis for that por tion of the President's message which deals with the public land question. The President does not wish to take a radical position, which would antagonize many, and tend to prevent tho enact ment of any remedial legislation, yet ho is anxious that something shall be done to correct tho abuses that have so gen erally aroused tho people of the "West. HUMPHREY MUST GIVE IN. Senators Will Not Allow Stewart to Be Postmaster at Seattle. OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, "Wash ington, Nov. 14. The appointment of a postmaster for Seattle to succeed G. M. Stewart, whose term expires early next month, is a question that has been brought before the two "Washington Sena tors and Congressman Humphrey, and from all appearances the latter will soon be obliged to bow to the will of Foster and Ankeny. Strictly speaking. Congress man Humphrey is entitled to name the new postmaster, but his choice must be a man satisfactory to tho Senators. Al ready Humphrey has recommended the re-appointment of Stewart, but Stewart is not acceptable to either of the Sena tors, and In view of this situation can hardly expect a second term. Senator Ankeny is favorable to the ap pointment of "W. A. Carle, but not In sistent that ho shall be the appointee, while Senator Foster has so far expressed no preference. Another candidate for the office is A. M. Brookes, the banker. "Within a short time, the delegation will endeavor to get together and recommend the appointment of Stewart's successor. If Humphrey drops Stewart-and picks a man P10 t0 the Senators, he can name me next postmaster. ir no re fuses to abandon Stewart, the Senators will Join in a recommendation of some man of their choice, and this man will bo appointed. As soon as Representative Cushman ar rives, the delegation will take up tho postmasterships at Castle Rock and Van couver. During the entire recess no agreement was made on these two offices and the present incumbents both have been allowed to serve beyond their terms. TO DEEPEN ASTORIA HARBOR. Senator Fulton Will Ask for an Esti- mate on Dredging. OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash ington, Nov. 14. Senator Fulton has pre pared and will introduce in the Senate a resolution authorizing the Secretary of "War to make a survey of the Columbia River between Tongue Point and Fort Stevens, with a view to widening and deepening tho harbor In front of Astoria. He also calls for a plan and estimate of cost of such improvement The resolution contemplates tho formu lation of a plan for dredging out shoals that have been caused by collections of sediment brought down by the Columbia River, or discharged by streams empty ing Into the harbor.

FIRM IN STRIKE Both Sides at Chicago Wait for Advances, WILLING TO ARBITRATE A Few Street Cars Again Run Under Protection. DISORDER IS LESS MARKED Engineers and Firemen Walk Out, Closing All but One Power House and Greatly En couraging Strikers. CHICAGO, Nov. 14. Cars under police protection were operated three times on the Wentworth-avenuo lino today without Interference or material disturbance. The police, under Assistant Chief Scheutter, kept the peoplo moving on all streets through which the cars passed, and no crowds were allowed to congregate. There was a much less disorderly disposition manifested by strike sympathizers, and the day was one of comparative peace. Two obstreperous hoodlums were clubbed and thrown into a police patrol wagon. This comprised the hostilities. The work today has encouraged the com pany to announce It will run cars on Sun day, the advisability of which heretofore has been a matter of debate among tho company officials. The first run will bo made at 8:40 In the morning, and there after cars aro to be sent out at intervals of Ave minutes until evening. The strike managers are building great hopes of success upon the trouble which they believe the company will have in re placing their engineera They hold it will be Impossible to procure licensed engineers In Chicago to replaco those who have gono out, and for a new man to undergo hs examination and qualify for the work will require a length of time which the men declare will embarrass the company be yond its powers of endurance. Power Houses Are Closed. This afternoon, all tho power-houses of tho company were closed, with one excep tion, and it Is not expected they will be opened for several days at least. In the early part of tho day several teamsters re fused to deliver coal to nonunion firemen at the power-houses, but this action was nof Sanctioned by the officers of the Teamsters' Union, and throughout tho day coal was steadily carried into the com pany's bins. The prospect of peace is not promising tonight. Both sides expressed themselves as willing to arbitrate, but each is waiting for nn advance from tho other side. General Manager McCulloch waited at his office today until after the specified tlmo for the giving of tho company's an swer to the demand for arbitration, but no representatives of the men appeared. Instead, the completeness of tho strike was accentuated by the enginers and fire men at the power-houses failing to report for work. Their places were announced by the railway officials to havo been filled by nonunion help. The immediate shutting down of tho State-street and Cottage Grove-avenue cables was regarded by tho strikers as significant In anticipation of a long siege, the railway company is rush ing preparations for the feeding and hous ing of its men. . When the hour arrived which Manager McCulloch, prior to the strike, fixed for giving the company's answer to the employes' demand for arbitration, Mr. McCulloch, President Hamilton, Counsel Bliss and two directors were waiting at tho company's offices, but no committees from the strikers appeared. Soon, how ever, a note was dispatched from the union headquarters to Manager McCul loch, Inquiring his attitude toward the men and his views with reference to meeting the men in the light of events since the question of arbitration was raised. The message from the employes' headquarters was delivered by a district messenger boy to a clerk in the general offices of tho railway company. The clerk took It to Mr. McCulloch, and pres ently returned, saying to tho boy: "Mr. McCulloch says there Is no an swer to tho message." It was learned later that McCulloch and Counsel Bliss considered the note for some time, and then returned the answer mentioned. Secretary Bland, of the union, declared upon receiving Mr. McCulloch's reply that no further peace overtures would be made by the union. Strikers Create Scene at City Hall. A great crowd of strikers, representa tives of the Chicago Federation of Labor, and members of the municipal ownership league, with a few hundred other men, poured into the City Hall late In the after noon and attempted- to break Into a .room where the City Council committee on local transportation was holding a meeting. They were repulsed by the police, and then tho crowd slowly melted away after two hours of loud talking. The promise was made by members of the Council transportation committee that the advocates of the municipal ownership would be given a hearing on November 23. A new method of preventing street blockades was put into effect today by the police. Whenever cars were passing from the strike district, the thoroughfare used was temporarily closed to all wagon traffic. The result was practically to elim inate attempts at Interference by team sters friendly to the strikers. The strikers and their friends have been stirred to great efforts, and have called a mass meeting to be held in Tattersalls Sunday night They expect to have an audience of 10.000 men and women, and "begin a powerful movement against the Chicago City Railway." Tho strikers have also appealed to the Governor not to order out the militia, and planned quo warranto proceedings against tho city for permitting the police to enter tho cars. President Mahon today reluctantly ad mitted he had been called Into a confer ence at which the question of a sympa thetic strike on the part of employes of other traction companies In the city had been discussed. He said the question had been put to him whether he would permit a sympathetic strike if tho stato militia or regular troops were brought here to break- the strike on the South Side. To thl3 step he refused to give his consent, but said ho believed if soldiers were brought to Chicago tho union employes on all other street and elevated lines would quit BRANDS 1SIANY AS B00DLERS. Missouri Grand Jury Sends In Four Indictments Against Prosecutor. JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Nov. 14.

It is stated, however, that four Indictments are returned against Prosecuting Attorney R. P.

Attorney Stone was present In court when the Indictments were returned, and gave bond for his appearance at the next term of court At 9 o'clock tonight it could not beJearned definitely as to what member of the Legislature and others concerned had been indicted, but rumors were generally current which mentioned a number of well-known names. It was stated that the indictments will be served as soon as possible and arrests made, INDICT BAKING POWDER MAN. Grand Jurors After Him for His Part in Aium Legislation. KANSAS CITY. Mo., Nov. 14. A special to the Journal from Jefferson City, Mo., says: The Cole County grand jury today In dicted William Zeigler, of New Yprk, president of the Royal Baking Powder Company, for connection with alum legis lation In tho Missouri Assembly In' 1901. The Indictment against Mr. Zeigler alleges bribery on thiec counts, and states that the defendant was instrumental In secur ing the votes of certain State Senators on the alum repeal bill of 1901 for which legis lative agent D.

BOSTON, Nov. 14. Progress In dispos ing of resolutions was made today at the convention of tho American Federation of Labor. Many matters still await action, however, and when late today the con vention adjourned until Monday, after having been in session six days, only about 40 of the 2S0 or more resolutions in troduced had been passed upon. Today's meeting was marked Jy a lively discussion on the question whether the convention shall appropriate 51000 for the Western Federation of Miners. A resolu tion to this effect was finally adopted. President Gompers, speaking from tho chair, answered what he termed an "In sinuation of cxtravagJhice." made by Delegate Gcorgo E. VIncens, of Spring field, who said that it might have been well If some of the money which the executive council had expended in visit ing Boston to arrange for the conven tion had been saved for an appropriation for the miners. Mr. Gompers declared the expense of the committee entirely justi fiable, and added: "The Federation has now many ap peals for funds before it It is not good to give to others who are always op posed to things you deny to your own family." The resolution of Delegate Lavin, of Wilkesbarre, that unionists shall oppose "unfair Injunctions issued by capitalist judiciaries," was voted down. A resolution was adopted Instructing tho legislative committee to Inquire into the extent of the practice of the Navy De partment in advertising for Chinese and Japanese to take employment as laundry workers In that department and to en deavor to have these positions given to others.
