FIELD FOFT FROM FROST.
TYhlle the crowd was waiting It had time to
observe that the field was soft. There had been
. enough frost to congeal th* moisture of tho
day before. Then the sun had come out and
warmed it up. and the result was a soft Bur
face that was difficult to keep a footing on.
This, it was generally agreed, would work
against Princeton, Inasmuch as superior weight
el-ways tells for more in soft going.
Another feature of the field that attracted
general attention was a contrivance for meas
uring the advancement of the balL This affair,
which was used to-day for the first time in a
big game, was a substitute for the usual pair of
ete«»l tipped poles connected with a five-yard
chain. It was constructed entirely of wood and
looked like a section of delicately fashioned rail
fence. It* principal claim to recognition is
doubtless the fact that the distance as measured
by It can neither shrink nor stretch.

the h»a<i of what is probably the most stalwart
collection of football players New-Haven has

from end to end of the western stand. It eveo

At once nearly fifty thousand eyes were fixed
upon the Ell players as the 'varsity squad
stripped off their sweaters and trotted out from
the Fide lines for their preliminary warming up
rractlce. Bloomer was In the line-up, broken
ahculder and all, but the reports of his lack of
condition were borne out by the big tackle's ap
jiearajice. He looked white and stale, and
moved with a noteworthy lack of snap and go.
Indeed, in the practice manor res Bloomer did
nothing but go through the motions.

teemed to be in the pink of condition. The fore

ticular, however. It had been stated that
Morse's Injuries sou d keep him out of the game,
so that there was r;o surprise when Leavenworth

Royal as was the greeting Yale received, It
was discounted by tho roar that went up from

Princeton stand was In an Instant a flower bed
of rioting cr:inf>-i chrysanthemums in honor of
the way their line had held. Hoyt then made
his first pant of the game. It wasn't much of a
putt, and when Shevlin had downed Patter the
little halfback was lying about in the centre
of the ricid. and Princeton had made a good gain
on the exchange of kicks.
But the Tigers in vain assaulted the Yale line,
and Miller punted, perforce, the ball going out of
bounds at the 30-yard line. Then Bloomer be
gan his great series of gain??, a series that set
the Yale stand frantic with joy and noise. He
ripped his way through th» fighting line for
fifteen yards before the entire Princeton team
succeeded in hauling him down.
ROCKWELL MAKES POOR PASS.
Then fallowed about the only really slovenly
bit of play of which Yale was guilty the whole
afternoon. Rockwell, on the pass, threw the
ball clean over Leavenworth's head, but Hoyt
saved the leather by prompt work, and then
punted. It was a short punt, at best, and, as
Cooney got through Hogan Just in time to touch
it with the tips of his fingers, the ball went down
for Princeton just inside of Yale's territory.
Princeton then began a string of short but
useful grams that flattered her friends into tho
belief that 'hey were the beginning of a great
end. RlttT ".'ikinned the right tackle" for five
yards by fast running twice in succession, and
Stanaid plunged through Hogan for three, but
the umpire saw a Tiger holding In the line, and
discouraged th« practice by setting tho Orange
and Black fifteen long yards back, and it was all
to do over again.
Miller fell back as If to punt, but ran instead.
only to be hauled down by Meal aiter a vigorous
progress of three little yards. Next time he
punted m good earnest to Hoyt. Burke was up
under the kick as if he were playing end. and
brought Hoyt down with the cleverest tackle
of the game. It was too vicious, however— so
much bo that Burke was knocked senseless for
a few seconds — and Hoyt. wriggling out of hla
nervelep; clutch, got back fifteen yard.3 before
he could be stopped.
When the two teams next lined up it was a
repetition of the story: Yale's ball on her 35
yard line. Then came a play that electlfied tho
multitude, and was. In fact, about the most sen
sational single play of the game. When tha
ball wan snapped Shevlin, Hoyt and Owsley
started at breakneck speed as if to skirt the
right end, and almost the entire Tiger team
tore off to stop them. But Rockwell held the
ball and gave It to Leavenworth, who easily
shot through the weakened line and dashed
down the field with no one save little Ritter to
?top him. The halfback was equal to the emer
gency, however, but it was not until he had
covered thirty-five yards that Leavenworth was
YALE PLOUGHS THROUGH CENTRE.
This was the entering wedge for Yale, and
from that moment she put forth all the her
culean efforts of her herculean team to hammer
the ball across the line. Bloomer, Owsley.
Leavenworth and Bloomer again was the or
der. Strive as she would. Princeton could not
check that attack. Almost every drive was made
at practically the centre of the line, and Rora
back, Kinney and Tripp opened up the way for
the onslaughts of the giant tackle and the slip
Once, Yale got a present of five yards for
offside play, and once the Tigers hurled Ho
gan back for no gain. But then the Invincible
Bloomer took up the tale again and on went
the ball. Twice, too, Yale Just barely made her
first down, but enough was aa good as a feast.
On went the triumphant march In short, sharp,
desperate progression, and at last Bloomer, of
the broken shoulder, shot through, and the
Tigers went down in their last ditch.
It would be difficult to tell without the use
of a "nolseometer," If there is such a thing,
whether the Yale or the Princeton cohorts made
the most uproar at this stage of the game, the
former by way of jubilation and the latter In
encouragement to their team. Anyhow, the re
sult of their combined efforts was something to
Hoyt kicked an easy goal and Yale was In tha
lead, 6 to 0. But Princeton was by no means
discouraged. It had been expected that if Yale
scored at all it would be in the early part of the
struggle, before her battered warriors began to
tire. "Now," said the Princeton rooters, "you
Just watch "em, watch 'em. They'll show you."
But they didn't.
Miller kicked off to Rhevlln, who was downed
on his 35-yard line. Hoyt was slow In starting
and failed to gain through the line. He re
deemed his error, however, by running eight
yarda on a "fake" kick Immediately thereafter
around Tooker"B end. Leavenworth got between
Cooney and Dillon for five yards In tliat curious,
anakelika way of his, but two more attempts
wens not fruitful, and Hoyt punted. Somebody
held in the line, however, and the umpire called
the play back and gave Princeton fifteen yard*,
TEXXErS CLEVER DODGING* RUN".
Hoyt promptly punted again to Tenney, who
had taken Burkes place, and the "'sub" quarter
then gave the prettiest exhibition of running
back a punt shown In the entire gain*.

This bad mess was followed up by the series
of mlsplaya already referred to. They made the
Tigers very weary- Dutcher thought he was
trying to catch a man at the home plate and
heaved the ball over Miller's head when tha
latter went back to punt. Of course, a Yale
forward got It and. as before described, the Ella
bucked It up in the 10-yard line, only to lose
It on a fumble. Immediately Miller let his
punt get blocked, and when Hoyt kicked the
goal from Rockwell's punt-out Yale had rolled
her total up to 12 to 0, where It stayed to the
The rest of this half was given up to unavail
ing attempts by each Hide to break the other's
line, after which a punt would follow. In the
exchange of kicks Miller invariably got the bet
ter of Hoyt, onco booting the ball for a total of
sixty clean yards. But Yale gained enough
more through the line to Just about offset this
advantage, so that when the half ended the ball
was in midfield in Princeton's possession.
YALE'S I.IN'E-T'P UNCHANGED.
There was come surprise when the elevens ap

that the spectators enlivened with a little more
than the customary outbreak of Institutional
songs and cheers, when it was observed that

game from that time on. Sometimes she punted
on the second down, and her attempts at gain
ing ground lacked the sharpness and determina
tion that had characterized the first half. As
for Bloomer, he did rot carry the ball once in
the seoond half. His work had been performed.
Miller kicked off to Leaven worth, and. after
Yale had failed to grain, Hoyt returned the punt
to Tenney, who ran It back brilliantly ail oy
himself, ttanding: off no fewer than three sep
arate Yale players who tried to down him. for
no less than twenty yards.
Followed that single burn of successful a?«
gT6F9lvene.?3 already described, by which, with
Cooney, Stanard, Miller and Hitter in the har
ness, the Tigers fought their desperate way from
the middle of the Meld up, up. up and to within
twenty-five yards of a touchdown. Several
times they were fought to a third down for their
five yard*, but they always made It until that
fatal UK-yard chalk mark. There that third
down stopped them, and Yale took the ball and a
deep breath at the same time.
Thereafter Yale's goal whs never really In
•erlcus danger, for there was no giant De Witt
to drop goals from the 40-yard line. But
though Yale saved her bacon, she could not gain

tied up for several hours to-night by an engine on

damage, proved especially annoying to the hundreds

An Offering of Slightly Used Pianos Many Practically
New— Taken in Exchange fcr the PIANOLA PIANO
Distinctly the best piano opportunity of the year
THE reason this Sale stands unique and alone MMOf all other offerings of used pianos, is
that nowhere else does the#ame inducement exist tor people to exchange instruments in
every way worthy.
We had no sooner "launched the Pianola Piano than it became evident that we should
have to enter the regular piano business in a large way. Almost every time a Pianola
Piano was sold, the purchaser offered in part piyment the piano he a'ready owned. The pianos re
ceived in this way have been remarkable for two things:
Excellent Condition Exceptionally High Grade
Hitherto the usual reason for a used piano coming into the market has been that it proved
unsatisfactory to its owner. Not so with the instruments in this collection. They have been ex
changed solely because their owners wished to replace pianos they could not use with others which
they could use.
The Pianola Piano is a piano which anyone can play without previous training. Consequently
the pianos taken in exchange for this new type of musical instrument have been disposed of by their
owners for no fault or lack of merit. As most of them have come from homes in which there was
no person able to play, these pianos have seen very little use and consequently are, in respect to
condition, totally unlike the instruments advertised at similar sales. In regard to their high grade,
the names of the manufacturers as printed below speak for themselves.
Tne demand for the Pianola Piano is so active that the exchanged pianos are coming in at a
greater rate than storage room can be found to accommodate them. Hence, prices have been fixed
for this clearing sale which will insure their promptly finding new homes. Judges of musical quality
will find that this collection represents unprecedented value.

Politicians Already Opposing 1 1 for
Next Year— Straight Ticket.
Now that the election Is over, the Republican
leaders are beginning; to talk about the Mayoralty
campaign next year. While Governor Udell will
not discuss it, and says there is plenty or time i.>
take that up when he Rets around to it, th^re Is
already a strong feeling among th«j politicians
against fusion next year. The Republican organi
zation in this city is in better shape than it lias
been for years, and Kings is also in Rood form.
Many favor a straight Republican ticket. "Better
nominate a Republican and take a. licking and
nominate a Republican and take, another licki.ig
and keep it up until we do win. than shift around
with fusion movements," said a prominent leader
last night. "Thin is tho way." ho continued, "to
keep the organization on Its mettle. 1 think this
can bo made a Republican town In time, and the
way to make it Republican is to keep hammering
at it. If we are licked, it helps in Stiite and na
tional elections, as the organization Is intact and
has been disintegrated by tying uy to fusion

A NEW POSTMASTER SOON
President to Make Appointment
After Consulting Party Leaders.
[FROM THE TKIBUNE ai'REAU.I
Washington, Nov. 12.— President Roosevelt
will in all probability name the new Postmas
ter of New-York about the middle of next
week. He will consult Governor Udell and Sen
ators Plait ami Dep«w before making- Ms de
cision, and will give due consideration to the
claims of the many candidates, avowed find
receptive, that have been ttled since Mr. Van
Cott died. Since the smoke of election cleared
away the hunt for the. big office has been prose
cuted with great energy by the men v.iio want
the place and their "backers." Each day the
list of "best men for the place" has grown until
now 11 makes quite an imposing roster.
To-day's new candidate was ex-Park Commis
sioner William K. U'illrox. William D. Murphy,
of the Union League and Republican clubs,
brought his name and fane to the White House
and ur^d the President to give him the place.
"Mr. YYlUcox la not .in avowed candidate or
the place." said Mr. Murphy, "but he would
take It. I think. I have nothing whatever to
hay against Marcus M. Marks, or any of the
other excellent men who are after the appoint
ment, but I believe thai Mr. V.'illcox is by all
odds the best candidate jret presented to the
President His record is above preach, he is
■ man of ample means, and he has am amount
of ability to apply to such a task as tha head
el: ip of the New- York postofflce."
Captain F. Norton Goddard, who ha« been
"named" for the place by all the political
prophets, was at ih* White House in the fore
noon in the Interests of Marcus M. Marks.
"I am ursine Mr. Marks lor the postmaster
ship," .--aid <..'aput!:i Godd&rd, "'* • ■ ;v"; v " I think
he is the best man the President could possibly
pick out for the place. You may say definitely
and decidedly that I am n..: ■> candidate, do not
expect to have it offered to n\', and would not
lake it If It were tendered, TTw ««ily condition
uiultr which l would take it at all would be if
CongT**S made the pay lares enough to at
tract my interest, and the President were to
then request trie to take •: lam a pool man,
and am obliged to *.ork for my living; there
fore 1 cannot afford to take a place that pays
no more th.m the New -York postofnc*.**
Tseodore P. Oilman, formerly Deputy State
(.'Ol it rot l«»r, stlU another applicant for the plare.
called to see the President in tri* morning. Ha
was accompanied by F. H. wiis >n and >;<*ori;
