The game of foot-ball that look place yester
day afternoon at Capitol Park botween the
Swarthmore College, of Pennsylvania, and the
Georgetown University team did not attract
the largo audience that was expected, but what
was lacking in number was made up in fervor,
as both sides wcro excited during the entire
game. The few lusty Swarthmores were re
enforced by a large delegation ot Columbia
Athletic boys, and they made themselves nu
merous during the contest. The game, which it
was thought at the outset would'bo productive
of good feeling, developed into a llerce on
slaught at times, which came near ending in a
row," but luckily it was averted. The two bin
ctntres, Daily, of Georgetown, and Mcllvaln,
of Swart hmore, seemed to have a good deal of
feeling in the matter, as they wcre'coutiuually
broiling. The two teams lined up as follows:
Swarthmnrc. Positions. Georgetown.
$. Hond Full-back Fleming
K. Bond Half-back Keyts
CI rcen 1 1 nil-back Dyer

Mr. E. M. Harvey, of the University of
Pennsylvania, was referee and Mr. G. "Bur
roughs, of the C. A. C, umpire. Iu appear
ance Georgetown had the call, but the stocky,
well-knit frames of the Swarthmores made them
favorites with many. On the opening or kick
off Swarthmore secured the ball, and by a good
run of S. Boud they advanced twenty yards,
which they cleverly followed up with well
timed rushes by E. Bond and Green that curried
them several yards toward goal. Green made
a splendid rush and run on the second down,
dodging iu and around the Georgetowns, and
flnallv scored a touch-down in seven minutes.
S. Bond failed to kick goal. Score, 4 to 0. On
the line-up Georcetown had the ball, and little
Fleming started in by making five yards, and
then Keyes followed with ten more, the tack
linc of Pugh being the cause of his stoppage.
I. Dyer then charged for fifteen yards and was
successfully stopped by Green. Fleming then
ran around the line for fifteen yards and lost
the ball on tackle of Carr. E. Bond on the
iue-up made a grand run and secured over
thirty yards. Green followed up with a run,
and "S. Bond, catching the ball as he fell, ran
across the line and made touch-down. S. Bond
failed to kick goal. Score, S to 0, twenty-two
minutes. On the line-up Georgetown secured
the ball, and Dyer, their half-back, made eight
yards: then Fleming went him ten better. On
Dyer's second attempt Green tackled success
fully and carried him back four yards, while on
the third down Swarthmore secured the ball.
Then E. Boud made two splendid runs for
thirty yards, and on the last lost the ball by
Fleming's tackling. McCoy made ten yards,
which was increased eighteen more by Keyes
and Dyer. The tackling of Hencbey was par
ticularly good at this point of the game. A
slight fracas occurred at this stage on account
of some slugging, McCoy and Carr being the
ones involved, but it was allowed to
pass. On the next pass of the ball Fleming
kicked for forty yards, Green made a catch, and
before any other gains could bo made the iirst
half expired. In the scrimmage at this point
E. Hart was slightly hurt, hut resumed when
In the second half Georgetown had the ball
and Fleming started to rush things in a lively
nianner.going fifteen yards before being downed,
and Dyer following immediately after with ten
more. Then Fleming got in another and Dyer,
dodging arouud the corner, made ten also.
This was the best work of Georgetown during
the game, and it enthused their boys con
siderably. After a few more rushes Swarth
more got the ball and Green made the run of
the day, and really the only brilliant event.
He gained the ball about mid-field and by 6omo
extraordinary and dextrous running, aided by
good interference of his side, ran the entire
length of the field and secured a touch-down.
Then S. Bond kicked goal, the first of the day.
Score, 12 to 0. Time, 10 minutes. On the line
up Fleming ran for ten yards, which was set
back some by Keyes losing five yards. Fleming
punted for thirty j-ardsand Green, making a fair
catch, started to run, but was cleverly run down
by Cleary and downed. Green made another
run aud touch-down, and S. Bond kicked goal.
Score, 20 to 0. Time, 20 minutes. Georgetown,
to save Itself, now commenced to work and
by some good work of McCoy, Denoe,
O'Donnell, and Smith woiked the ball up
dangerously close to Swarthmqre's goal. Then
Fleming kicked forsafcty. Green gotthe ball and
came across the line, but immediately returned,
McCoy tackled and claimed a touch-down for
safety, but liefcreo Harvey refused to allow it.
A wramrlc ensued and tho game ended by a
score of 20 to 0. The Georgetowns were cleverly
outplayed, as the "Swarths" displayed more
team work. They claim, however, that the
referee was againat them, ho being a graduate
of Swarthmore, a fact, however, that Manager
Sproule of tho visitors denies. The Swathmores
were royally entertained at dinner yesterday by
the Georgetown students.
Tho second eleven of Georgetown College
played an interesting game of foot-ball with
U)o Columbian College team on the Georgetown
Campus. T ho teams lined up as follows:

Columbian opened the gamo with the V, thus
gaining ten yards. From this until near tho
cud of the first half the ball moved back and
forth from one end of tho field to tho other.
Kaufman got theballonafumblo by tho full
back of Columblau and made a touch-down,
which was not allowed on account of Geogo
towns men naking a foul interference. This
ended tho half which lasted thirty mluutes.
On account of darkness tho second half con
sisted of but twenty minutes. Sullivan by a
beautiful run of forty yards made a touch
down. Tho ball was badly punted, and tho
Columbians by a series of good rushes carried
tho ball again to the centre, where it remained
until It was gradually forced to the Columbian
goal, whero their full-back was forced to make
a "safety," 'when time wa6 called. For George
town good rushes wcio made by Sullivan, llcn

teams was very good. For Columbian irood
rushes were made by Talmadge, Davis, and

Lu a'ln.ary on tL defensive at the btart and
kept her there all throush the urainc. All that
Pennsylvania could do was to kick, and Thay
er's punls were caught and rushed hack for
touch-downs. Iu the second half Dewey aud
Griffith (Pennsylvania) were injured, the latter
having Rome ribs broken. Their places wcro
taken by llcisman aud Graham. Hutchinson,
of Harvard, was referee, and George, of Prince
ton, tho umpire. The Pennsylvania men
dropped several hundred dollars by betting that
Yale would not score twenty points.
Buookmn, N. Y.j Nov. 15. The Princeton
foot-ball players had it all their own wav from
the bediming. There was very little slugging.
Once Princeton lost the ball and played a loose
game, aud finally Slayback got tho ball and,
dodging throe Princeton mon, scoring a touch
down. It was tho first. Wcsleyau over made
acainst Princeton. The Wcsleyau men hauled
liko madmen. The Princetons made runs
arouud the cud, aud Wcslcvan rushes through
the middle. Princeton had'lG to 4 in their favor
at tho end of the first half. When the gamo
closed the score was 40 to 4- In Princeton's
Washington is a great athlcUc centre, and
out-door sports receive as much attention here
as In any locality In America. Tho prepon
derance of young men who are in Government
life and who are therefore free and untram
melcd at the hours usually placed for training
purposes, reuders it very easy for tho clubs to
get out available men in every class of
athletics. That out-door athletics is popular
hero has been attested iu various ways through
local regattas, the championship meeting of the
A. A. U., aud later on tho foot-ball contests of
the collcgo and athletic clubs. Of all out-door
sports foot-ball, while the most interesting, is
at the same time the worst abused game from
outsiders, simply because they do not really
understand what they are talking about. Tho
modern game of foot-ball, as played here by
the Columbias and Georgetown aud Kendall uni
versities, requires not only trained men of
muscle, brawu, and skill, but they must possess
a great degree of grit that will enable them to
resist the rushes aud tackle the big men with
every confidence in their ability to down
the opposiug man, though he be twice as large.
Of course, there is some abuso brought into the
game by rough scrimmages, and once iu a while
accidents occur, as iu every other line of sport,
but they arc few and far between. Last year
whan the Princetons made their first appear
ance here, aud later on the Naval Academy
boys, our athletes had their eyes opeued, and
at once the sport took firm root and established
itself iu public favor, and it has growu ever
since. This year our clubs have shown marked
improvement, aud while not yet able to down
such as Princeton, etc., they have succeeded in
winuhiK some good games, aud it Is confi
dently asserted that before the close of next
year they will cause the best college teams to
lower their colors. The small bickerings that
have arisen aud the falsehoods spread "broad
cast about the promoters of the game should
he stopped and a game arranged fmr the cham
pionship on Thanksgiving Day. This should
be the came of the year, aud the Columbia A.
C. and Georgetowus should go at it with the
desire ouly to settle the question as to which is
the better team. Will they do lt? ' a r
One incident happened at the GeorgetowTi
Washington and Lee game that is worthy of
mention. Among the spectators was a crowd
of yelling students who had a large tally-ho
coach, and they made themselves very abusive
and objectionable; iu fact, their work was out
rageous. Well, the Georgetown boys took it
good uaturedly, aud only one break took place,
that being one of the gang hitting little Flem
ing over the head with his caue. When the
game was over the abusive gang crowded Into
their coach, and it being on a small declivity, It
upset, and the ringleader of the crowd un
fortunately broke his leg in the scramble.
When the coach was righted the crowd got
aboard, drove oft", and left the injured man on
the field to get along as best he could. When
Dyer and McCoy 6aw this they got out of their
hack, lifted the man in, aud carried him into
Lexington for treatment. This generous act
to the most abusive man of the crowd caught
on, and that night the people of the place
could not shower enough houors on the vis
itors. It has been said frequeutly of late that the
probabilities are that the Amateur Athletic
Association of England will feel disposed to
look into the amateur standing of the Salford
Harriers team when it returns to England. The
men have been competing in joint games with
the Manhattan Athletic Club for gate receipts,
the proceeds to be divided between the two or
ganizations, but this question will not enter
into any investigation the Amateur Association
may make. What the association will want to
know, if it cares to know anything, will bo
whether the Salford Harriers paid "their own
expenses, which, of course, they have not.
On Tuesday the Columbia Athletics met and
defeated the eleven from Dickinson College in a
hard-fought and stubbornly-contested game, tho
score being 0 to 0. The Columbia boys showed
marked improvement iu their gamo, and it is
apparent that tho two games with Princeton
and Lehigh havo taught tho boys a trick or two.
What they want to do now is to add a little more
6nap to their game, stop tho cavorting with tho
ball when lined up, and devote more attention
to team work. The individual work of Buttcr
v nth, Bam6burgh, Vcasey, and Emory was
good, while Harbau and Crist interfered and
tackled well. Tho points were accomplished in
a clever way. Butterwoith made a kick toward
goal whichtho full-back of Dickinson fumbled.
A6 it bounded out of his hand Capt. Wells
caught it, and, making a good run, scored a
touch-down, and then Butterworth kicked goal.
There was a very small crowd present, but they
wcro not pleased with tho decisions of Mr. Lake,
tho referee, who gavo everything in favor of tho
On Tuesday tho Georgetown Collcijb foot-ball
team visited Lexington, Ky.,to play 'tho team of
Washington and Leo University, and after a
good game returned homo victors by tho score
of 10 to 0. The Georgetowners were royally en
tertained by tho faculty and students of tho Vir
ginia school, and say that if possible they will
have them down here this mouth. Isadora Dyer
made his fiist appearance as a half-back, and to
his splendid luunlng and Interfering may bo at
tributed much of the success of Georgetown.
McCoy played splendidly, as also did Fleming,
Koycs, O'Donnell, and lleuchoy, while the en
tire rush linoof Georgetown stood tho onslaughts
of tho Virginians liko a huge wall. The game,
though played hard, was devoid of tho usual
hard slugging that has been noticeable in con
tests of late.

mayors' Leaguo Mooting Trying to Settle
Nnw Yonic, Nov. lo. Tho Players' League
meeting nt tho St. James Hotel continued until
nearly 2 o'clock this morning. Mr. Prince, of
Boston, was asked this morning if ho was to as
sume control of the League, and he said ho
would until tho fight was over. "How loim-,"
ho was asked, "will it bo before tho fight is
ended?" "I doujt know," ho said; "wo are at
present all intact, aud there is no reason why
we can't go on as before." "You don't really
mean that, do j-ou?" tho reporter asked; "for
there aro New York, Pittsburg, and Brooklyn
consolidated." "Yes, I do; for they can't lo
gally wlthdraw;l feel sure of that. That is what
wo discussed last night most of the time, and
wo came to that conclusion. We will, however,
be sure beforo wo take any decisive stops; this
morning we will consult Judgo Bacon, and bo
guided by him." After the Leaguo meeting
every one was close-mouthed. It was known
that A. G. Spalding made a speech and that tho
Pittsburg Club representatives made a statement
of the financial matters. Tho other clubs will
probably help Pittsburg out by taking stock.
The meeting adjourned subject to tho call of
the chair. Mr. Byrne, of Brooklyn, said: "No
resolutions or statements were made, and about
the most Important thing was that of leaving
all the differences between tho opposing clubs
in the cities where they exist to tho con
ference committee, composed of A. G.
Spalding, John B. Day, aud myself." "That
means that you will settle the Cleveland, Phila
delphia, and Boston questions, doesn't it?"
was asked. "No, wo have no arbitrary power
at all, only tho power to get at the bottom of
the troubles and report our opinions to tho
National Leaguo. We won't, however, hurry
ourselves, as the Leaguo will not probably meet
again until late in the winter, and at that time
wo hope to havo everything settled. Phila
delphia may be settled by the consolidation of
the Players' and Athletic clubs."
An application has been regularly made for
admission into the Brotherhood by a syndicate
of Washington speculators.'
There has been considerable base-ball gossip
iloatlng around during tho past week and it is
said that at the Brotherhood meeting In Pitts
burg application for admission was made on
behalf of this city. Well, if this was done no
body in tho District knows tho parties and
those interested in base ball do not seem to care
who tho foolhardy ones are. It looks liko the
Brotherhood was on its last legs and was bol
stering up its tottering frame by sending out
such stuff. Washington will have a team, but
it will not come within the shadow of the
Brotherhood. We will either be in the Leaguo
or American Assoclacion.
ATHLETICS AND ROWING.
It will be remembered that at the champion
ship meeting of the A. A. U. on October 11 in
this city Nickerson, of tho Naw York Athletics,
won the running high jump. His entry was
protested, and last week the committee de
cided that tho protest was based on good
grounds and awarded tho first prize to Halloch,
of the Mauhattans.
Mr. Herbert W. Elmore has been elected a
member of the Columbia A. C. Ho will make
a good addition to tho ranks of tho largo mem
bcrflhip roll of tho C. A. C.
A meeting for tho election of a new governor
of the Potomac Athletic Club will tako place
on tho.20th of tho present month.
The many friends of Mr. Howard Perry, tho
excellent secretaiy of the Columbia Athletic
Club, will bo glad tolcarn that ho is convalesc
ing from his recent illness. Tho popular young
man had a severe case of nervous prostration,
and for a time serious results were feared.
President Harry McMillan, of tho Amateur
Athletic Union, has or Is about to tender his
resignation as general manager of tho Athletic
Club of tho Schuylkill Navy, carrying with it a
salary of 2,500, This is tho proper move to
tako if ho desires to continue at tho head of Hio
leading amateur association of tho laud, as it
has already caused ill-feeling, and charges of
professionalism are rife.
