NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 14. 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
"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
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:

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.
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. ,

More Powerful Than the One Which
Lately Dictated Prices.
NEW ORLEANS, La., Nov. 14. 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.
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

Richards, Pinchot and Newell
to Propose Reforms.
This Leads President to Ask Heads of
Departments to Formulate Leg
islation He Can Recom
mend In Message.
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
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.
Senators Will Not Allow Stewart to
Be Postmaster at Seattle.
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
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.
Senator Fulton Will Ask for an Esti-
mate on Dredging.
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. These shoals have
Interfered materially with large vessels
that attempt to reach the docks. Based
on tho report Senator Fulton, will ask
for the necessary appropriation to carry
out tho work of dredging.

Wait for Advances,
A Few Street Cars Again
Run Under Protection.
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

BOSTON, Nov. 14. Progress In dispos

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
