< HADWICK AND ROCKWELL THE STARS.
But the bright, particular stars of the Yale
r!rv«*n were in the backfield, of which so many
r>ars were expressed early in the season at
• "Haven. Captain Chadwick was one of
them and Rockwell was the other. Chadwick
i« one of the best halfbacks Yale ever had. He
Is always in every play, starts rapidly when he
takes the ball, bits the line low and hard and
is sever down for good until he is practically
buried. On the defensive he was Invaluable
ana always safe. He has every reason to be
proud of his own work, as well as of that of
the team that has been developed under his eye.
His co-star is Rockwell, the redheaded quarter
back, who routed Metcalf from that position.
This young man, who. though a senior, has been
so recently discovered by Yale, . showed all
the qualities of a great football field general.
He never mixed his signals up, got the ball
promptly into play, passed without an error
xnd never fumbled. But th» most remarkable
quality in his play was the certainty with which
he followed the ball. He followed it as a hound
does a fox. He was never at fault, and not
only did he find it, but he stuck to it with the
persistence of a bulldog to a bone. If he could
pant, he would be the equal of the famous Daly,
who passed the ball so well for Harvard some
years bask, and who is now at West Point.
Bowman's play was disappointing. He did not
seem as strong as in the Princeton game, and
his punting was decidedly inferior. Metcalf
showed great skill at running back punts
through an open field, but he had the benefit of
a fine defence, which is worth special descrip
tion. Whenever Kernan fell back to punt both
Yale ends, instead of trying to break through
and block the punt, at once fell back fifteen
yards or so. Consequently, . when the leather
settled Into the embrace of one of the Yale
backs, these ends were always on the spot to
form a flying interference which was rarely
good for less than twenty yards.
Yale's play did not contain many features.
She made almost all of her gains of consequence
by the variable tandem with which she ham
mered Princeton's line. This thunderbolt was
directed generally at Harvard's left wins, which
ga\-e way before the terrific onslaught. Met
calf s touchdown was, achieved by means of the
false Interference that enabled Captain Chad
wick to score two touchdowns against Prince
ton. The Interference and the runner started
like a flash toward the right end. Halfway
there the runner let the interference go and
deshed off at right angles through the line.
Most of Harvard's defence was gathered st the
spot whither the interference was bound, so that
the runner got through the line easily, and then
dodge,] the unhappy Marshall. This, in brief,
is how Yale -non. The victory went to the more
powerful and better organized team, one of the
best, in fact, that American football ha« ever
Th» biggest crowd that ever went to Yale
Field saw the game. Additional accommoda
tions had been provided, extra stands having
been built. so that there were seats for more
than twenty-seven thousand persons. Not only
was every feat sold, but there were thousands
of would-be spectators who were unable to get
inside the grounds. Every seat was disposed of
days ago, and those speculators who had been
able to get hold of the precious pasteboards
had no difficulty at the last minute In disposing
uf them at the rate of $25 each. It was not long
after noon when the thousands began to file
it .to the stands. Harvard had the west and Yale
the cast stand, with the north and south fairly
Impartially divided. Every regular train Into
New -Haven was packed to the doors, while

Harvard turned out a record breaking crowd
... cheer for the Cambridge players in Tale's
stronghold. When th' referee's whistle blew for
ihe first time, there must have been ten thou
sand Crimson shouters, who simply split their
lungs singing "The Harvard Marseillaise."
V. hen they aii rose to their feet, took off their
bats and waved their banners the sight was one
of vigorous beauty.
Yale. too, did herself the utmost credit. She
packed the eastern stand from end to end.
«h'!e so the north and th» south her banners
waved by thousands, and even In the hotbed of
Harvard sentiment an occasional blue banner
waved defiantly amid the Harvard cheers. Each
contingent had its own band, which helped to
keep the fingers together temporally, and the
"Boula" song leaped out to meet the "Three
cheers for Harvard and down with Yale!" Big
Franz ]e<l the Harvard cheering with one as
sistant. while Yale employed no less than even
or eight agile and energetic persons to mark
time for the «houters
It was five minutes after the hour named fo*
play to b*ir»n wh««n •< roar from the north
*t»r]«s announced ' the advent of Yale's eleven.
and en instant later the team, headed by Cap
tain Chadwick. trottf>d upon the field. A shout
went up from th*» eastern stand, and th» black
V-ackground leaped Into lir* with blue. A half
minute later Captain Kernan trotted at the head
of his mm. and the crimson flashed ten thou
sand tlm*s In the sunlight.
Th* two teams lined up for a btt of signal
practice to limber up and all doubts about
Tele's playing Glass were settle, i when the big
jruard stepped Into his place. Only a few min
utes of this work were had before the coin was
tossed. Captain Kernan called It correctly and
chose the southern goal. As the two teams
faced each other for a struggle toward which
♦•very energy had been .for so loner directed, and
the thousands realized that at last the time for
speculation was ended and the hour for deeds
was come, a perfect hush fell upon the multi
tude. There was a brief delay while Shevlln's
canvas Jacket was laced up, and then Referee
McClung's whistle blew. Bowman took a little
run and lifted the ball for. the first time The
ball fell out of bounds and Bowman had to kick
again. This time Putman caught the leather
almost on Harvard's goal line. The halfback
fell down promptly, but managed to pick him
self up and make ten yards before he was
downed by the first tackle of the game Shev
lln being the instrument of Yale, while a shout
of glee went up from the eastern stand. It was
too close home to be comfortable, and Reman
promptly punted to the middle of the field
<:hsdwlck was first to try Harvard's line, but he
did not gain, and a quarterback kick followed
which was sadly fumbled by Captain Kernan',
and It was Yale's ball again only thirty yards
from Harvard's goal.
Then Yale began the first of the series of
terrific onslaughts of brawn and beef by which
sh« wore down Harvard's resistance. The vari
able tandem was called upon time after time,
and Hogan, Gobs and Bowman carried the pig
skin forward for gain after gain of from two
io seven yards, without a stop until on Har
vard's 12-yard line Metcalf was piled up In a
way that brought the Harvard thousands to
their feet with a ringing cheer. Tt was only a
momentary respite, however, for th« hammering
recommenced. It was all through that weak left
wing of Harvard's, sad Hogai! hit the CrSni
son defence for four yards. Glass dragged Chad
wick through it for' three yards, to the 2-yard
line, and the next instant the Yale captain ."hot
through tlr- remaining distance for the first
touchdown of the frame, while the howls of tri
umph rioted over the Held. Bowman promptly
kicked the goal, and the score was 6 to 0.
Carl Marshall kicked off to rale's JO -yard
line to Shevlln. who was downed by K"wdJtcn
after running it back five yards. Klnney. on a
tackle back play, got only two yards, and two
more rushes netted little more. Bowman punt
ed to Harvard's 50-yard line, and C. Marshall
was downed in the middle of the field by Kaf
ferty. Tandem plays aimed at Goss and Hogan
alternate!) carried the ball down to Yale's .••»
yard line, where a fumble gave the bail to the
wearers of the Blue. A. Marshall was off side
on the first play, and Harvard was penalised
five yards. Bowman made four yards on a mass*
formation, and he then kicked to Harvard's ..'_
yard line. Graydon had hardly got the ball
securely tucked In his arms when Bheviin
clowned him. Three tandem plays gave Harvard
a firet down, and after carrying the ball to her
own 10-yard line Kernan kicked to Yale's .<—
yard line, Metcalf fumbled, but Bowman re
covered the ball. On the very first play A ale
made a feint toward the right end of the Har
vard line, and as the Crimson started in that
direction to stop it Metcalf squeezed through
the left side, between Shea and Barnard. Carl
Marshall was the only man between the Yale
halfback and a touchdown, and Metcalf dodged
him and placed the ball behind the Harvard
goal line after a 70-yard run. Bowman was
again successful in kicking a goal, and Yale
had an advantage of 1- points.
HARVARD'S GREAT BRACE.
On toe kickoff Metcalf got the ball at his own
10-yard line ana ran it back five yards. At
the first plunge, Yale made her distance. By a
fake kick Hogan made another of Yale's long
runs, carrying the ball from the 15-yard line to
Harvard's 18-yard line before being brought to
the ground. The ball was fumbled and rolled
ten yards, but a Yale man fell on it. Harvard
got the ball on the next play for holding, and
at once began her one great brace of the game.
Slowly but surely she carried the ball down the
Bald until the Harvard stand rang with the
word, "Touchdown! Touchdown:" so confident
did the Crimson cheerers feeL Holes were made
through Goss. Kinney. Hogan. and occasionally
Glass, Graydon and Kernan doir>g most of the
ground gaining. The ball baa reached rale's
B-yard line when Harvard fumbled. Sugden re
covered it. but it availed him little, for the Yale
line was now like a stone wall, and Harvard had
to surrender the ball on do« us
A fake kick on the first play resulted in a
loss and Bowman then punted to Marshall at
Yale's 30-yard line. Plays directed at Coss
carried the ball to Yale's 20-yard line, where
another Harvard fumble cost the Crimson a
possible chance to score. Bowman kicked to
Kernan, who fumbled the ball, but recovered 4t.
On the next play Kernan kicked to Yale's .'lO
yard line. Four mass formations brought the
ball to Harvard's 50-yard line, where the half
At 3:33 the teams lined up for the second half,
with Vandei playing fullback for Yale, in
place of Bowman. There were no changes in
the Harvard lineup. Marshall kicked off to
Yale's 25-yard line, and Metcalf ran back be
hind good interference fifteen yards before he
was downed. Three plays, with Kinney back
and Glass making the hole, netted ten yards,
and holding in the line by Harvard gave Yale
an equal distance.
Again Klnney was brought back for the tackle
back formation, and with a wide hole opened
for him through Barnard by Glass, he tore up
the field for thirty yards before being tackled.
Yale now played with the confidence and
strength of a winning team, and at every smash
of the Harvard line tore a hole which repeatedly
gave the Blue first down. Glass and Kinney
continually broke through the line and helped
the runner by dragging him along. Hogan was
called back from the line to carry the ball time
after time until Harvard's thirteen-yard line
was reached. Metcalf got the ball, and again
Glass made an opening In the Harvard line. He
caught Metcalf about the body and dragged
him, with two Harvard men who were hanging
on to Metcalfs legs, to Harvard? two-yard
line. On the next play. Kinney smashed through
Knowlton for the third touchdown of the day.
Metcalf kicked a pretty goal and sent the score
up to 18 to 0 in favor of Yale.
When the teams lined up for the kiekoff
Hurley relieved Putnam at right halfback.
Marshall kicked off to Yale's 5-yard line, and
the ball was carried back sixteen yards by Met
calf. Yale's charge at the line did not gain
much ground at this point, and Vanderpoel
kicked. The pass was low and hard to handle,
and the fullback kicked cut of bounds at Yale's

to Yale's 25-yard line, when Marshall dropped
back for an attempt at a field goal. The pass
was good, and th* ball carried well, but It went
to the right of th«» goal posts by about three
feet, and Harvard's last chance waa gone.
Vanderpoel kicked out of bounds on his first
try. but on his eeeond sent the ball down to
Marshall at Harvard's 40-yard line. Rafferty
caught the runner In midflejd. Kernan fumbled
on the following play, and Graydon, who carried
the ball In the next scrimmage, was tackled
from behind by Ooss and thrown for a loss.
Marshall kicked to Metcalf nt Yale's 15-yard
line. After two attempts at hitting the line.
Vanderpoel punted to Kernan. Shevlin missed
his man, but Metcalf threw him hard. Harvard
could not gain by tandem plays, and again
kicked, the ball going to Yale's 25-yard line.
Kinney and Goss were Injured, and the latter
had to leave the field, Hamlin taking his place.
Yale galloped through the Harvard line for
thirty yards In short gains, when Harvard made
a last effort and held for downs.
The effort was costly, however. The Crimson
men did not have the steam to hit the Yale line
effectively, and Kernan kicked. Metcalf ran
back thirteen yards. Hogan was now called
on repeatedly, and made good gains. Barnard
was played out and Whltwell went in, as did
Clothier, who relieved Bowditch. The ball was
on Harvard's 10-yard line when Hogan crashed
through for a touchdown. Metcalf failed at
goal, and the final score stood at 23 to 0 In
favor of the sons of Ell. Darkness was rapidly
falling and in the few minutes of play which re
mained made it difficult to watch the ball. Bow
man was laid out and Farmer substituted, and
Wilhelml took the place of Rafferty. Wright
relieved Shea. With only a moment or two to
play. Graydon was replaced by Harrison. The
game ended with the ball on Harvard's .'ld-yard
Then those thousands of Harvard men stood
up In the twilight and cheered their beaten
eleven half an hour, while over across the field

over the rail upon the gridiron, overwhelmed

upon their shoulders, and bore them about the

[NT TEI.EGR.APn TO TUB THIBUNB.]
X \ -Haven. Conn., Nov. 22.— Tale supporters
were in a high spirit of excitement over the
overwhelming victory of tho football eleven thin
afternoon. Crowds surrounded the New-Haven
House and cheered the coaches when they ap
peared, and surrounded th» players when they
came out from dinner. All of the Yale players
are In perfect physical condition, except, of
course, for a tc.:gh tire out. They all went to
the gymnasium after the game and were rubbed
down, donned ordinary clothes and mingled with
Trainer Murphy uf Yale wits bubbling over
with good feeling to-night, as he is receiving;
congratulations: from everybody for the way he
brought the Yak- team out of its slump and put
them through the two championship games. He
said to-night: "The boya outplayed Harvard Just
a? we expected they would. Every man Is feel
ing fine except that Cuss hurt his neck a little
nnd Bowman Is tired out The uther men came
out as fresh as they went in. "
Captain Cbadwick waa pleased but modest.
He said :
"1 guess I'm about the proudest captain Tale
ever had, because the men all played to the
limit and beat a splendid team with good Yale
spirit. Harvard's offence was very fast at times,
but we found ourselves able to hit their line for
gains almost at will."
Head Coach Swan was preatly pleased at his
score, which he thought was larger than Tale
had any expectations of making. He said: "We
retired our men. not so much because they were
hurt, as because we had the game, and didn't
need to rush our men. Harvard put up a dandy
game, full of ginger and fight, and mighty
sportsmanlike, too. The npeed. quickness and
aggressiveness of our line won the game. It was
a first class team, anyway, and next year, we
are going to have even a better one."
The Harvard players looked thoroughly tired
out when they boarded their train for Boston
at 7 o'clock to-night. Bowditch was the most
used up Of the team, and showed the effects of
a very hard game. The other men were In good
condition, but cheerless. They received Invol
untary applause at the station from a large
crowd of Yale men, and laughingly saluted their
Captain Kernan said to a Tribune correspond
ent: "Vale was a better team and therefore
won. But every Harvard man played for all
he was worth every minute of those two halves.
It was a clean game. also 1 think we had not
just expected such a dashing attack as Yale
gave us. You see. we rather expected to win.
We had a number of good trick play* up our
sleeves, but didn't dare to use them after Yale
had met the first ones we showed. So we played
straight football. We can't complain of the
Head Coach Farley said
•'Yale was betti-r than we thought. Their at
tack was tremendous and our men were over

of the stuff the Harvard t«.am showed iteelf to

SHARE WILL LIFT MORTGAGE
ON HER FIELD.
Princeton, N. J., Nov. 22 (Special).— George R.
Murray, the general athletic treasurer, said to
day that last Saturday's game against Tale was
the most satisfactory financially that has ever
been played here. The gross receipts of the
geme were $32,000. After a deduction of about
$2,000 for various expenses, this sum will be
divided equally between the Yale and the Prince
ton associations. There were 1."»,83t two-dollar
seats occupied, 1,016 general admission tickets
sold and Gt'K) seats alloted to the press, ushers
and side line spectators, making a total of
17.49*.*. This is 4.0<»0 more than the next largest
attendance, which was at the Yale game two
years ago. The attendances are constantly In
creasing, attesting that the popularity of the
game is rapidly growing In the East.
Ihe proceeds of the Yale-Princeton game will
go a long way toward clearing up the debt which
his been hanging over the athletic association.
The expense of putting up new stands has been
large, but the $15.<100 not only covers this, hut
will clear up the mortgage on the university
PRINCETON PLEASED AT THE RESULT.
Princeton, N. J.. Nov. 22 (Speeial)-The news or
Yale's vi tory was received her«» with many ex
pressions of "joy. Each touchdown was grated
with cheers by the crowd which viewed the came
as i; was followed on a blackboard placed on the
front campus. The outcome makes last Saturday's
result look much batter. The Tigers' defensive
game, it Is thought here, must have been of the
first quality to withstand Tale's heavy plunges.
C. E. Patterson, the well-known writer on sports,
in a letter to "The Princeton Alumni Weekly" this
week, highly praises the Ti«r«>r!«' coaches for the
work that they did this fall. In i*>irt he nays:
Yale hi>Kin the season on the crest of the hi!!,
with a juallty and Quantity of material such as no
university > -er hud at the npentrtf? of a season.
Princeton bejmn at the bottom with a jrood cap
tain only three or four players of calibre and ex

Under the faithful leadership of < # ochran. ably
seconded by Hutchlnnon, Rl«g-«. Mill?. Balrd and
John Poe, the whol*- Princeton squad of forty men
has be<»n instructed in the principles of football
from the ground up. I have watched their work
closely ana have seen their plans unfold week by

ij..nf wonders with the. material at hand.
HOW THEY CELEBRATED HERE.
AND HOW THE SUDDEN CONCENTRATION
OK CAPITAL IN TALES HANDS
DIDN'T STAY THERE.
The crowds of men and women who left New-
York yesterday to see the big game at New-
Haven eclipsed all previous records. A conser
vative estimate plates the total number who went
out to the game at fifteen thousand. From 5
o'clock till after II th ■ Grand Central Station was
crowded with enthusiasts, and presented many
gray colors and much vivacity. Then the women
wore all possible things to proclaim their allegi
ance, ribbons of blue or crimson. Bayly colored
dresses. Colored vests and blue violets or crim
son chrysanthemums, declared that their posses
sors Intended to cheer for one or the. other team.
A little before I" o'clock the 1 rains began to
move, and every five minutes until 11 o'clock ten
crowded coaches started for New-Haven. The first
trains out were those of thn Harvard and Yale
clubs, followed by trains of private and parlor
cars, and those in turn by the ordinary coaches,
• •tie entire train of parlor cars was occupied by
parties headed by Howard Willets. Woodward
Babcock, Gerald U Hoyt. James H. Lowell, E. R.
Adee. »l. B. Hollins and 11 W. Taft. August Bel
mont's special car Louisville and Edward Gould's
enr Dixie were attached to the Harvard Club
trains. Horace C, Dv Val occupied Senator
Depew's private car.
Early In the evening the trains began to return,
and unloaded their passengers at the Grand Cen
tral. Every one was tir>>l. The Yale, men were ex
ultant and happy, while the Harvard partisans
went quietly to their own places without attracting
undue, attention. At the Yale Club. In Forty-fourth
at., the Joy bubbled over. The game was again and
again reviewed, and there seemed no limit to the
general content. Across the street at the Har
vard Club content was not so evident.
Yale itnJ Harvard hoys came to the city, pack
ing the theatres and dancehalla and thronging the
Tenderloin In search of excitement, the Yale men
to celebrate their vie tory, the Harvard men to
forget their defeat It Is likely that the sudden
concentration of capital in the hands of the Yale
boys has already been largely overcome, and the

FIREMEN DIE IX DOCK FIRE.
A Im»7.EN MEN CARRIED DOWN WITH
Ashland. Wi?.. Nov. 22.— The Wisconsin Cen
tral Railroad Company's ore dock was destroyed
by (Ire this afternoon, the loss being- about
$525,000. In falling the dock carried with It a
number of. firemen anil dockmen. and several
lives were lost. Just how many will probably
not be known for some days. Several badly in
jured firemen were rescued from the burning
ruins, one of them with both legs broken.
The fire started presumably from a boat un
loading lumber across the slip, and before the
firemen arrived the entire ore dock, half a mile
lons, was in flames. An engine was run on the
tramway as near the fire a? possible, «nd half
a hundred men began tearing apart the tim
bers connecting the tramway and the dock, to
keep it from (ailing with the dock. Suddenly
lbs dock gave way, carrying with it two hun
dred feet of the tramway, the engine bard; to
i aping the fall into the bay.
Several hundred persons were under the
tramway, but most of them escaped with slight
Injuries. As the broken tramway and the burn-
Ing dock fell, at least a dozen men were seen
to go down in the ruin*. The wreck fell Into
twenty feet of water, and it will be impossible
to recover the bodies for some time. A large
force of men is engaged in an effort to recover
the bodies of the dead firemen.
When the tire began the upper dockman was
cut off from the shore, and a lumber boat put
off to rescue him. Another man. In running to
the shore, fell into an ore pocket and his com
panions were compelled to leave him to his
fate. At a late hour the fire is still raging.
