What proved to bo the most interesting game
of foot-ball played licro this season took place
yesterday at Capitol Park, the opposing teams
being the Columbia Athletics and Lafayette
College, of Eastou, l'n. It was interesting from
the fact that every yard of vantage ground was
stubbornly contested by the twenty-two men,
and consequently it was a match that kept the
, spectators lively throughout the game. The
garao started auspiciously for the Columblas.
In tho first four minutes they secured a touch
down by some excellent sprinting of Butter
worth, but afterward they failed to add n point
to their score, try hard as they might. They
were somewhat handicapped by the absence of
two of their best players, llarbau and Veasey,
though tho presence of Cash, an old Prlnce
tonian, made up considerably for their loss.
13yrne was placed at full-bad:, and being new
to tho position made several blunders'" that
operated badly for his team. The visitors were
also handicapped by the abseuce of their best
Dlayer their centre rush who was injured on
Friday at the University of Virginia. At times
bad blood was shown and some scrapuiug took
place. Once Lieut. Kelly was obliged to sepa
rate the men. In the preliminary practice the
Columblas showed up to better advautage and
it looked to the untrained eye that they had a
walk-over, as the Lafayettes did not play much
for shape. In the game they displayed excel
lent judgment in their interfering and tacklimr,
and, though llchter by many pounds, showed
far tho better team work. As they lined up
they were placed as follows:
Cohimbias. Positions, Lafayettes.
Byrne Full-back March
Butterworth Left Ilalf-baek Beidlcnmn
Itamsburg Hight Hair-back Wilson
Taylor ix!tt-guard Oliver
Itanier Left end Dumont
Cash Left tacKle Smith
Wade Centre -Stcckel
yells Kight tackle Hitchcock
Lewis Itlirbt guard Robinson
"Welsh Bight end Silver
Burroughs Quarter-back Voigt
Mr. Charles 11. Boynton, of the C. A. C, was
referee and Mr. Edgar March, of Lafayette, um
pire, two excellent selections, as during the
contest none of their decisions were questioned.
In tho kick-off Columbia had the ball and by a
splendid rush Eamsburgh made a gain of ten
yards. On the next pass Butterworth made a
good ruu of forty yards, which brought them
well up into the vicinity of goal. On the next
down Cash made a rush over the line and se
cured a touch-down. In the attempt at kick
for goal Butterworth failed. Score, 4 to 0;
time, 4 minutes. In the line-up the Lafayettes
had the ball 3nd thev at once commenced to
rush, Beidleman starting oil with a run around
the line for ten yards. Silver then made a long
punt, which Butterworth caught fair, but was
cleverly downed by March. In the next pass,
the Columbias having the ball, Cash showed
his good Princeton training by rushing the
centre for eight yards, then on a fumble by
Byrne and Emory the Lafayettes secured the
ball. Big March secured the ball and by a
splendid run covered thirty yards before being
downed. Then by some strong and fierce inter
fering of Cash, Wade, Wells,' and Welsh the
Lafayettes were kept at bay, and were unablo
to gain much. March then attempted a kick
for goal from the Held, but Butterworth caught
it, but made a failure in kicking it back, as Du
niont rushed it over on the fumblo for a touch
down. March failed to kick goal. Score, 4 to
4; time, IS minutes. On the line-up the Co
lumbias bad tho ball, but in an instant the La
fayettes secured it on a fumble by Byrne, and
immediately March, Wilson, and Voigt, by ex
cellent runs, secured another touch-down.
March punted out, but failed to kick a goal.
Score, h to 4: timr. "1 mlnntoo Tn i. i
minutes left of pluy there was very little ad
vantage secured on either side, as the ball was
kept busy in play all the time. The last part
of the game was as fine an exhibition of foot-
ball playing as any lover of the game would
like to see. A brilliant feature of tho game
was a rush through the lines, a scrimmage, aud
a fumble, on which Dumout secured the bail
with a clear field for a run, but within ten yards
of goal was overtaken by Butterworth, who
downed him with one baud. The first
half closed without any additional scoring.
They lined up for the second half looking
dilapidated. Lafayette had the ball and by three
great runs by Wilson they advanced tho ball
well up tho Held, on the last being well downed
by Wells. March attempted to kick goal from
Held, but beiug "oil-side" lost twenty-live yards
and tho ball. Columbia then by splendid rush
ing of Uamsburg and Cash worked tho ball
down to centre of field. Here they lost tho ball
and Maich made a kick of thirty yards. On
regaining the ball they commenced to work hard
and Cash made several mad rushes through tho
line for about thirty yards. Tho Lafayettes trot
themselves together and by good work in tho
scrimmages secured tho ball and worked it up
toward goal. 1 n one of the scrimmages Wilson
secured the ball and while tho rest were fight
lug ho ran away and touched-down. March
then made a kick for goal. Score, 12 to 4.
Quickly lining up, Voigt and March made
rushes, aud then Wilson made auother good run
and secured a touch-down and March kicked
goal. Score lb to 4. It was now too dark to
continue piay and the Columblas called time.
Tho opinion of tho spectators was unanimous
that it was tho beet exhibition of foot-ball seen
hei o this season. The Lafayettes will leave for
homo this afternoon. They were tho guests of
the Columblas at their club-houbo last night.
The greatest came of foot-ball of tho year will
tako place on Thanksgiving Day in Brooklyn.
Tho opponents will bo tho Yalo and Priuceton
Collegiate teams. Tho tramo will bo pJayed at
Eastern Paik, and already over five thousand
dollars have been expended in putting tho
grounds in shape for tho contest, aud the larg
est crowd that ever witnessed a foot-ball en
counter is expected to bo present, tho lowest
estimate placing it at 40,000. Tho two teams have
been liurd at woik for three months, audit is
safe to predict that they will 6tep on tho field
fit to battle in a loyal manner. Among tho
great majority of peoplo Yale has tho call, sim
ply because of its signal defeat of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania, while Pilnceton had all
they could do to beat thoPennsy's. Tho Prince
tons have been severely crippled of late by in
juries to Capt. Poe, Black, Iliggs, and others,
but they will all bo iu condition by Thanksgiv
ing Day to give tho New Haven boys tho haid
est game thoy have ever played. Yalo is in
good condition, aud if the team emerges from
the contest played yesterday against Harvard
Jn good shape tho odds will still bo in her favor.
Still there is a lurking impression that Prince
ton will wiu the game simply through tho wou
deiful team work that Capt. Poo has drilled
them to and tho splendid discipline and man
agement of Mouager Alan D. Wilson. Prince
ton is a decided favorite here, aud quite a lartte

Georgetown College played an exciting came

College boys, the gamo resulting in a tie, 0 to 0.
The Ucorgetowns played a strong game and
showed the New Yorkers that thev knew a
trick or two at the subtle art of playing foot
ball. "Isaac" Dyer aud Fleming made some
excellent runs, while the rush line was improg

There should not be auy bad feeling engen

HARVARD DEFEATS YAL.E.
A lSrlllinnt Game Between the Grout Uni
Si-iiiNGriEi.u. Mass., Nov. 22. The Harvard
eleven defeated the Yale team here this after
noon by a score of 12 to G iu one of the most
brilliant games iu the history ot foot-ball.
Both teams played like clockwork, aud for the
first half neither was able to score, though Yale
, was the aggressor throughout, with a strong
wind iu her favor. The loss of McBride, who
was every bit as good as Traft'ord at punting in
last year's game, was keenly felt by Yale to
day. The crowd that cathered on Hampden
Park was greater than that of last year.
Tho college colors were so universally worn
that it seemed as if every man aud woman on
the two sides were clothed with crimson or
blue, and the multitude of Hags was countless.
The Yale and- Harvard cheers were kept up
without cessation from start to finish, and tne
enthusiasm when Harvard scored her first
touch-down was something unheard of. Tho
referee and umpire were Messrs. George and
Irwin, of Princeton. The eleveus lined up at
2:33 P. M. in this order:
1'alce. Positions. Harvard's.
Hartwell Lett end Hallowell
Wnllls Left tackle Newell
HeUeitinger Lett guard..- P. Trafford
Lewis Centre Crnuston
S. Morrison Bight guard Finluy
Rhodes Right tackle Upton
Crosby Right end Cumnock
Barbour Quarter-back Dean
McClung Half-back Corbet
Williams Half-back Lake
B. Morrison Full-back B. Trafford
Yale wins the toss, and lines up on the north
end of the field for the kick-off. Tho first
noteworthy play is a loner run by B. Morrison,
which takes the ball well" down into Harvard'
territory, aud then for forty-five minutes both
sides struggle as only trained athletes could
struggle to gain supremacy, but neither was
able to secure a point. Good runs by Williams,
McClunff, Morrison, and some grand kicking by
Trafford were tho features.
The second half begins at 3:50, Williams
Deing repiaceu nyuiiss. JUcClung and Traf
ford exchange punts and then the Harvard
men force the fight down into Yale's territory.
Corbett gains fifteen yards, but is sent back on
a foul, and Bliss, the'new man, docs some good
running. A struggle that is fierce but not de
cisive ends in an injury to Lake. Leo is put
in his place.
The ball is down near the Yale goal when
the first great play occurs. The ball belongs to
Harvard, and it is passed to Lee, the now half
back, who runs like a deer for forty yards and
scores the first touch-down of the game, from
which Trafford kicks a goal. The agony is
soon to be repeated, for at4:2G Dean leaps over
Lewis's right shoulder and falls upon Barbour
as ho is passing back the ball. Dean
regains his feet, catches it on the re
bounda thing that Is not likely to
happen once in a thousand times
and covers the twent3'-fivo yards to tho Ynle
line, closely pursued by Hartwell, who just
fails to reach him. Trafford kicks another
goal, and tho score is 12 to 0. Then the Yale
team seems inspired with a frenzy. It madly
forces the crimson back to ite twenty-flve-yard
line, but no fuithcr. do what it may. Tho "play
is fast and furious, but tho gathering darkness
prevents most of the lino points being ap
preciated. At last the Yale men, by
a series of mad rushes and resist
less wedges reach tho Harvard lino
and McCluug is carried over with tho ball,
scoriug Yale's first and only touch-down, from
which B. Morrison kicks a goal, making tho
score 12 to 0. Still tho Yalo men fight bb for
life, and there are fifteen minutes of agony.
But tho crimson stands steady, and when tho
blue comes too near a long punt by B. Traf
ford, with tho rushers promptly down on tho
man who takes it, sends u jjroan through the
Yalo benches. Tho moon shines brightly, but
little can now bo made out save that Harvard,
though all the time on tho defensive, is not to
bo demoralized or routed. Tho end comes at
exactly 5 o'clock. Harvard is declared tho
victor. Tho scene that ensued Is indescribable.
Harvard is drunk with its success, while the
Yalo peoplo aro much cast down.
Bi:tjii.khem, Pa., Nov.22. A largo crowd
gathered hero this afternoon to see tho gamo of

Ciikstisu, Pa., Nov. 22. Tho annual Swarth-inore-Haverford
game of foot-ball was played
on tho Haverford College grounds to-day,
Although Sullivau, Swarthmoro's centro and
strongest man, was disqualified, Haverford
could not resist tho visitors, and Swarthmore
was tho winner by 30 points to 14.
