COLLEGE CANNON FIRED
Desperate Attempts of Students to
Hazs Two Freshmen.
Tried to IlniK Tin-in From Their
Uonrdiiijj Place, Hut Are Driven
Off With MimuuiM.
Brllefuntp, l'a.. Oct. 31. Two students
have been expelled from tlic Stale College,
ami fourteen indefinitely suspended for
hazing. And. In addition, most of them,
or maybe all of tticui, may yet get into
the irirulual courts before the affair is
entirely at an end.
As is usual at the opening of each col
lege year, the higher men undertook to
Initiate the freshmen (and there were a
great many of tliem this year) In the usual
way liy giving each one a good hazing.
For several weeks all went al.,ng without
a Jar, the old students were having their
fun at the expense of the new men, and,
though the college authorities attempted
to suppress it, they were never able to
rind out who the parthlpants were.
Among the freshmen were two brothers
who hod taken room and board in the
family of Daniel Shivery, in the village
near the college. Try as they might, the
students were unable to catih these tivo
to give them the proper Initiation. And
thus matters stood for some lime, until
one night recently a large rowd of the
higher ilass men got together and sur
rounded the house of Jlr. Shivery and de-
-manned the surrender into their hands of
the tiro young men.
The demand was refused, whereupon
the crowd opened fire with one of the
colli ge cannons they had surreptitiously
token with them, and which had bern
loaded for the occasion with stone, old
tomato cms, and most all kinds of dirt,
right, nt thehouse. Windows were broken,
furniture inside of the house was ludly
demolished, and the outside of the house
"" " it-MMirujieu inai it wjs almost Im
possible to tell Its original color.
Two shots were fired, by which time all
the minutes of the house were pretty badly
fright died, except Mr. Shivery and one
cf the students. They were equal to the
rmergeney. Each of them hastily seized
a double-barrelled shotgun and sallied
forth into the crowd, demanding their Im
medlatr withdrawal under threats of being
fired Into if they refused.
Acting wlili discretion, the crowd began
to withdraw, attempting to take with them
the cannon, but the owner of the propertv
ordered them to leave that, and they had
no other recourse. The cannon Mr.Shivery
luM as a ransom until his lots and damage,
may be made good . ,
The nnmesor most of the students taking
part in this night's work were kuown and
renorted to the facultv. Tliev were at
once taken in hand bv the college authori
ties, and two f the number, the ring
leaders, c-cn-'llcd. and under such a cloud
that tliev will be unable to enter anv of
mo coucges in me unltnl. states, and
fourteen others were suspended Indefin
itely. When this was done it was thought
that it might be the end of it. but it seems
that it Is not to lie.
-Mr. Shivery not vet being reimbursed
for the damage to his property, came to
Itellefonte and consulted an attorney, with
tbe result that he was Informed that lie had
a very strong case against the voung men
In the criminal courts, lie decided, bnw
nor, to give tbcm,onc chance to settle,
nnd tbe participants have been notified
that if thev will pav all costs accumulated
an far. repair the damage to the house,
and In the aggregate pav a fine of S1.000.
the matter will be allowed to drop: If they
rail to do this, thev will likely all be ar
rested and tried at the coming term of

Columbian 'VurMty l.lew'n Wiliits
Cliiuici" to l'lay 1-elilgb on Tlinnks.-
There is liable to lie some feeling stirred
up in the football ranks over the: Thanks
giving Day game. It was said last night
that the new Columbian "VarIty team
would challenge the Columbia Athletic
Club eleven for a game just as miuh as
Coach Lewis gets his men placed ami work
lug together smoothly, awl that the game
would decide which team should play
Lehigh on the holiday, the 'v.frsity men
assuming that they nnd the athletic i tub
men have the best and strongest teams
In the local contingent.
This claim is iiuite likely to be vigor
ously disputed by several other team, but
It It Is not, such a bargain as the 'varsity
men huve in mind will hardly meet with
the approval of the athlitic club men.
In fact, a prominent athletic club man who
speaks by the card said to The Times that
no such agreement would be gone into, be
cause arrangements lor the Thanksgiving
Day event had gone too tar. Theathntic
club team would be glad lomeelthe'varsiiy
bos. but they wotnd hold onto the right
to may the holiday game, win or lose.
Nothing definite has as jet been heard
from Lehigh about a Tliankgiving Hay
game here. Capt. Wells said last eten
ing that hedid not know whether the team
woual or would not come. Tin time with
in which a lin.il ausivcr is to be given has
not yet expired, so he Is therelore still In
a quaislary as to what her intentions are.

but lr the team finally decides not to ac

game for that day with some other good
Edward Williams, captain and manager
of the Ijlakcs, is enthusiastic over the good
work lieiiig dune In prat lice by his men. If
they do not make a strong showing when
he lines them up for ai tital duty he will be
greatly disappointed. The friends of this
team are emphatic hi expressions of the
belief that no clocn In town can down
them. Practice is done on the triangle.
New York avenue and North Capitolstrect.
The outlook for the Columbia Athletic;
Club eleven for games with other local
teams does not appear to be encouraging.
Capt. Wells said yesterdiy that challenges
had lieen sent to several of the teams notv
in good playing shape, including Gallau
dct, but that none of them would agree
lo line up against his men. Just why this
is so is not cxpliined. lut it is hoped that
the teams -hallcnged trill change their
minds and that, meetings may be arranged
In the near future.
Among the games being negotiated for
by the Columbian 'Varsity eleven are those
tilth the UntMTslty of Virginia, Uiil" ersity
of North Carolina, Virginia Medical Insti
tute, Johns Hopkins, Lehigh, and Laray
etle. Speaking -of these negotiations and
the Columbian footlull movement gener
ally, Mr. It. B. Barrett, who is heart and
soul in It, said:
"Columbian University haR an opportu

and knowledge. Mr. Johnson will go to New
York to vote next week, and will witness
the Princeton-Harvard game.
The Fotomacs, It is said, have declined to
meet the Shamrocks, Why. no ono except
the Fotomacs, knows. If the local teams
continue to refuse to try conclusions with
one another there will be few games here
outside of those played by the school teams
There are four good teams in the city, not
one of 'which has had a game thus far this
year. They are the Columbia Athletic Club,

His injuries are. not dangerous, but they

There is said to lie more than a little
chagrin felt by some or the members of
the orients over the anuounceuii lit made In
the-e columns a day or ltan ago that
Alton was thinking of associating liim
silf Willi the Columbian rarSlty team.
Alton is one of the stropgi'St.mcii the
oriei.ts have, and it is liui, natural tfiat
the team should desire to hold him, but on
the other hand, it is a naturul thing Tor
Alton to feel that lie should like lo join
his cold go i hums, and help them ns much
as possible in making the 'VarMtv team a
winner. However, The Times did not say
it iras nt all certain that Alton would cast
his lot with the Columbian". In fact, it
Is well understood that he has a very
warm feeling ror the Orients, and K he
leaves them at all he will do so with
no little regret and with their full con
sent and approval.
Noreum. the 17f-Ktiud young fullliack
for the shamrocks, is developing into a
corker. He is as strong as a horse, rear
less ami very fast, and with nil Is be
yond exciting or rattling. He is. rated
as good a footliall plaver as tie is a base
ball player, and Unit Is mlf-lily good.
The Columbian 'Varsity eleven will line
up again for practice on the college

The game between the Polomacs aril
Orients yeslerdav was probably the best
from the football expert's point of view
that has been played in this city this year,
and It has rumMicd endless discussion.
There were several changes mnd in the
line-up of the 1-otomncs. Bright played
right guard in place of Davis, and Clark
was full back in place of Capt. Lyman,
who took Bright's place as left tackle.

was published in ycslcnlay afternoon's J
limes. -ne oincer in ine Kiiuie cie.

The teams were very evcnlv matched,
both ns to weight and playing ability,
and it was a case of see-saw from start to
rinisb. Olle Sears and Durfv were the
life of the Polomacs. Early jn the first
half Sears executed .a double pa?s, and
getting the ball, made a beautiful run
around rigid end. This was the prettiest
play of the game.
In the last few mluutes or the second
halt the Potomacs discovered a weak spot
in their opixinenl's line, nnd hammered It
Tor all they were worth. Duffy did some
great work at this Juncture, repeatedly
carrying the ball through tbe Orients'
line, nnd not once loslne It.
Tlndail and Wood diu the most crrcclive
work for the Orients. The mass plays
of the ttnm were well executed, but they
did not show the head work that charac
terized those of the Potomacs.

been matched to box six rounds before the
Schuylkill Navy Athletic Club next week.
The new Manhattan Atliletlo Club, of
New York, lias devised a plan tojiscertaln
who is the most skillful 1-0 and 145 pound
boxer in New York city. A tournament is
to be held, the preliminary contests on No
vember II and the filial bout oil November
18. The contests are to bo liiultcU to four
rounds each and a purse awarded in each
bout. L j
Tbe benefit for Joe Bateman, to take
place at Georgetown to-nlgrrtVpromiscs to
furnish some good sport, and, notwith
standing tho very bad weather, It will no
doubt draw a good crowd.
It- now looks as though Bateman would
be able to get all the fignt he wants within
the next few weeks. The prospects aro
that Glynn will meet him within the next
leu days, notwithstanding the numerous re
cent failures to bring them together. Then

The local contingent Is all on tip-toe to

about 9 o'clock this morning a report was
spread around the eastern end of town
that Corbett and Fitzsimmons were nt it,
and there was a general flutter, but th
truth of the rumor could not be verified,
and tbe excitement soon died out.

A number of drug clerks are considering
the advisability of forming un association
for the mutual benefit of Its members. All
registered vvleiders of the pestle will be elt
ginle to membership.
The principal ooject of the proposed asso
ciation will be to secure, if possible, an
agreement from employers providing for
the closing of drug stores Sundays, or for
a part of the day, at least.
The drug clerks say they would certainly
appreciate the suggested change. They
nrcamong the hardest worked, and are paid
the least of any class engaged In the professions-
Besides, their responsibilities
are great and out of Uie oniliury. The
proper comiwundiiig of prescript tons is most
important, a person's life often dueiidlug
upon their correct Interpretation and ful
fillment. Such lieing the condition, the
argument is used by the pill rollers that
Where their tasks are so great, they should
lie given an opportunity to have necessary
recreation, at least one day In the week.
In speaking or tile proposed organization,
tlic chier clerk of a promlnetit pharmacy on
Sev entii street said to a Times reporter:
"It Is a fact the drug clerk receives less
remuneration for his services than any
individual in any other line of occupation.
He is obliged to lie hi the 6tore ready for
work at 8 o'clock ln the morning. He
seldom leaves before midnight, exeunt two
nights which are allowed him during the
week. On these occasions be leaves the
establishment at 8 o'clock.
"The Idea," he continued, "Is a good one
nnd should be pushed. An organization
is neeaeu. 10 no mis, uuwever, we necci
co-operation. The closing on the Sabbath
would not seriously affect many places, but
it Is an utter Impossibility to get the drug
stores connected with hotels to close. They
are, In a majority of Instances, allowed to
exist by tlte hotel management, only In
consideration that they be kept open dally.
There Is a provision hi tbe lease to that
Several clerks in leading apothecaries co
incided with this view.
A well-known clerk in one ot the stores
on the Avenue said:
"I am glad to sec that pharmacists are
beginning to take an interest In a matter
that Is not only to their interests, but con
ducive To their good health and welfare.
The life of a drug clerk is a hard one. Long
hours, great responsibility and small wages
form the rule. They are handicapped, to a
certain extent, however, because of the
large number of lnexierienced and unregis
tered young fellows, who accept positions
nt nominal wages in the smaller class ot
drug stores. There are many such people
employed in Washington. It will require
a strong organisation of ttie registered
clerks, together with concerted action on
their part, to accomplish anything of
permanent beneflciency. I would like to
sec something of this nature accomplished
in our ranks."

AS THE CKOKHS CO.ME OUT.
The story or Edgar Allen Poe as pre
scntisl by Mr. Creslon Clarke according to
the play written by Mr. George C. Hazel
ton, Jr., the voung Washington actor and
author, caught the sympathies or a large
audience at the Lafajclte Square Opera
House last night.
No American lire history so appeals to the
American heart by its strange surround
ings and tragic end; none is so thoroughly
dramatic. Mr. Hazelton has well portrayed
with Tvords the dazzling li-hts and heavy
black shadows of the poe-t's career, and
Mr. Clarkc's-prc-sentation of tbe character
ot Poe is thoroughly appreciative or the
fine iioluts of the play. At the same time
he btings to the part all the technical skill
of tne "lnistied actor. He has, too. n close
personal reeml)Lin-i" to tbegre.it Virginian.
After .showing the merry jouth at Will
iam and Mary with ample means togratlfy
every whim, Mr. Hazelton brings on the
discarded heir in Ins cottage at Fordham
attempting to live by Ids ien and proud
as Lucifer in his nestltuiion. His love
story is skillfully lnterwov en, and the w hole
brought lo a climax in the pathetic death
scene In a taltlmore street.
Through all Mr. Clarke brings the liv
ing man belore tbe audience with an in
tense n-alily that imparts a new meaning
to the story, and when he finally bows his
head upon .1 i.ox in ine the spectators
arc almost heartbroken. The play culm's
very near the line of the Greek Inti-rdlct
which would permit no subject of too re
As John Allan, Poe's father, Mr. J. L.
Carnart gives a lively picture of early
Virginia character, while Frederic. Vroom
presents the villain or the play acceptably.
Virginia Ciemm and Helen Whitman, the
leadiug parts of that side, are both well
done by Adelaide Prince, wlios- power
to turn from one character to another is
proved lo be very great by the double de
