PHILADELPHLV, Nov. 26. West Point
defeated the Annapolis football eleven,
11 to 0 two touchdowns and one goal.
The score does not properly indicate the
relative strength of the two elevens, for
probably not in the history of the great
university game have two teams been
more evenly matched.
The first touchdown for the Army was
the result of a fumble by one of the Navy
backs, but the brilliancy with which Tip
ton, the Army center, took advantage of
the error has never been excelled, if
equalled, on a football gridiron. The
game had been in progress less -than ten
.minutes when West Point, Jound the
Navy line a Gibraltar, and Torley kicked
to midfleld. There were three jAnnapolls
men under the punt, but when all had
been thrown, the ball roye'off to one
side of the mass of player?. 'Tipton,
coming on from behind, kicked . the ball
toward the Navy's goal. Pursued by half
a dozen Navy men, he had no time to
stoop and secure the sphere, but, rushing
on, he again dribbled it. His aim was ac
curate, and the ball was driven nearer

turning point of victory for West Point.
Up to this time the Annapolis boys had
really outplayed their heavier opponents.
and on the exchange of punts aided by a
stiff wind had gradually forced West
Point nearer her own goal line.
This touchdown gave West Point the
advantage of the wind, and was doubtless
mainly responsible for the victory of the
Army. Doe missed goal, and the score
stood 5 to 0, in favor of the Army.
On an exchange of punts the Army se
cured the ball on the Navy's 50-yard line.
From this point it required 22 minutes for
the Army to force the ball to the Navy's
goal, and this with a gift of five yards
for off-side play.
A few minutes before the close of the
game the Navy, by brilliant line-bucking
by Doherty and Cormlee. the latter hav
ing taken Smith's position at fullback,
carried the ball from their own 3S-yard
line to within 20 yards of West Point's

this half the advantage, if there really
was any, favored the Navy.

HASKELL BADLY DEFEATED.
Carlisle Swept Off Her Feet at First,
but Brawn Counts in End.
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 26. After three and
a half minutes' play, during which' the
Haskell Indians fairly ran the Carlisle
braves off their feet and Hauser, Has
kells right end, kicked a field goal from
the lS-yard line, the vaunted speed of the
Western Indians, spent Itself against the
brawn and muscle of the Eastern red
men, and the latter's heavy plunging
backs tore through Haskell's line almost
at will, followed the opposing line back
upon Itself when Haskell got the ball, and
piled up a score of SS to 4 before the end
of the second half.
With ideal football weather and many

The only time in the second half that
Haskell forced Carlisle to punt was when

ting Association and its officials on ac
count of it has ever occurred In the trot

to hear or read of It, writes J. L. Hewey,
In the Chicago Record Herald.
A year ago a genuine blot was smeared
on the "scutcheon at Wichita. It was suf
ficiently deep-dyed and malodorous to
satisfy the most Inveterate scandal
monger and last Indefinitely. There was
here cause sufficient. But the Dillon
Memphis case is Its antipodes, and of the
effort to make It out another Wichita
affair we can only express ourselves In
the paraphrase that It is not so much the
deed as the attempt that amazes us.
The root of the whole matter lies, or
course, in the rivalry between .Messrs.
Bluings and Smathers. It has gradually
grown more Intense for three years past.
and the present climax Is not, perhaps.
remarkable when what went before
In 1902 Smathers. with Lord Derby, got
the best of Mr. Billings with The Monk
in a series of sensational races, winding,
up with that for the gold cup at Mem
phis. Last year this was reversed. Lou
Dillon came Into the market In the
Spring. On public form she was an un
known quantity, but It was pretty well
known to many men that she was a won
der. When she was led before the block
at Cleveland in May, Smathers had a rep
resentative there to bid on ner. Mr. Blu
ings was there in person, and against the
judgment of his advisers outbid Smathers
and all the rest and got her.
She soon made It apparent that she.
could trot rings around any of the
Smathers horses. Then Major Delmar
began to loom up. He clearly was the
only horse living with even a chance to
compete against her: Smathers bought
him at private sale it is said for $40,000.
but that is only guesswork and the two
raced for a cup at Memphis.
The mare made the gelding look like
hack, and the Smathers colors trailed
through the dust to Winter quarters.
This year the teetotum whirled back
again. Lou Dillon went off early in the
season and at no time was the mare of
1S03. Delmar was In grand form through
out, and when the two met for the last
time the birdlike mare collapsed In a
strange and unaccountable manner and
the 'gelding won a spectacular but in
All Summer, however, he had. been tilt
ing at the unpaced record of Cresceus,
2:02U. He beat it at Lexington first In
2:01: at Memphis he trotted In 2:01.
There also he pulled the high wheels in
:07. Everything was Delmar. The mare
was In eclipse. Her owner was almost
heartbroken, while Smathers was Jubi
lant. The last dying chance was taken with
the queen. She was kept at Memphis in
the hope that a record-breaking mile
might be got out of her. No one for a
moment expected her to no what she
could do a year ago. But It was believed
that, even If not herself, she could still
trot a mile faster than Delmar.
Well, she has done so. She has trotted
two as fast In 2:01U each and one faster
In 2:01. And It has hit Smathers so
hard that he has forgotten the meaning
oi tne worn sporismansmp, to an ap

He has accused something like a score
of as representative, reputable horsemen
as connected with the harness turf of
fraud, and if reports are true no stone
is being left unturned In the bolstering
up of the charges made.
It Is now said that the affidavits of the
Smathers timers are to be laid before the
board of review next month and the plea
made that the mare's record be declared
fraudulent. Past history has made it
plain that Lou has few friends at court.
But In this case there is only one possible
procedure for even the famous advisory
board which Is to hustle the aforesaid
affidavits, etc. into the stretch with em
phasis and expedition.
That, at least, is the way in which the
affair looks to the man up the tree. It Is
not a pleasant affair. It i3 distinctly un
pleasantto use a word altogether too
mild to be fitting.
The most unpleasant part Is thatvthls

because she has never been "sweated for

the uses of pure sport alone, should be
subjected to such an unsportsmanlike as

Turn In Her Case.
NEW YORK, Nov. 26. The serious Ill
ness or jdwara . Dressier, one or the
Jurors, which was reported at the open
ing of court today, may necessitate a
new trial In the case of Nan Patterson,
the former show girl, who is charged
with the murder of Caesar Young.
An affidavit from the sick juror's phy
sician which was presented to Justice
Davis said that the patient had suffered
stroke of apoplexy and that his con
dition is serious. The trial, which was
to have been resumed today, was ad
journed fdr the time being.

she said as she was being led back to
her cell In the Tombs. T am sorry the
uror Is 111, both for his sake and for my
own. I was sure tne jury woma acquit
me. If there must be a new trial I hope
it will come at once."
.Although the members of the Jury and
the defendant gave themselves over to
complete rest during the Interval afforded
by the recess, the attorneys in tne case
took advantage of the Intermission in an
entirely different way. All their energies
were exerted toward bringing closer to
gether the material points upon which
depends the success or loss of their case.
Rumor, which has tigured prominently
In the case since the trial began, also
was active during the Interval. One of
the stories which gained wide circulation
and which, if true, undoubtedly will have
added materially to the sensational side
of the trial, was to the effect that J.
Morgan Smith. Nan Pattersons brother-
in-law, who fled after he had been sub-
penaed to appear before the grand Jury.
had been found, and was locked up at
police headquarters. This report was later
denied by the police, however.
The .prosecution has kept up an unre
mitting search for Smith ever since he
disappeared. They charge that it was
Smith who purchased the revolver with
which Young was shot, and that he would
prove to be their strongest witness if he
could be found. Already bmitn s pnoto
