pearance, and. as they rushed out on
the gridiron and commenced kicking the
bull to und fro, the rooters decorated
with the blue.and while, who were 111
evidence on all sides, fairly went wild.
The Virginians, led by Captain Penton,
math? their appearance shortly after
llio Tar Heels antl the enthusiasm ?villi
which they were greeted was almost un?
bounded. The large crowd apparently
rose en masse, and for several minutes
the circumambient atmosphere was till
eU with bourse yells, in which could be
distinguished it slight mingling of the
shriller cheer of the female rooters,
who were out In gi t at numbers.
As soon as possible the captains itut
together and selected the Olllcers of the
game. Mr. Johnny Poo, of Princeton,
was chosen for referee; Messrs. J. K.
Lloyd, of the University College of
Medicine, <>r this city, and Ucnumbnt, of
the University of Pennsylvania, wore
appointed umpires; and Messrs. Uasker
vllle, Of ihe University of North Caro?

The playing during the llrst half was
pretty much all against Virginia, the
ball being almost constantly In her
territory. At one point the umpires
awarded a foul against North Carolina

Jackson and a dispute resulted. Cnp

and contended thai Carolina's right

Tii.- umpires decided to rule both men
out of tin- >;ame. and Captain Pentoh,
being satisfied with this decision, sub
Btltlltpd Itullitt for, Jltckson, and Field

Play was resumed, and after some
playing the ball was snapped back to

yards. Collier, of North Carolina, lh-;

Beaumont declined, however, to move
from lh.- sin 11(1 ho bad taken, and said
that Collier must leave the name. Capt.
Gregory declined to allow Collier to
leave the can.v. and said that If the
umpire did not resi llttl lib; action and
permit Collier to play, lie would take
him men from the Held and stop the
game. A number of the Carolina
players crowded around their .captain
and besought him to adhere to b.is de?
cision n.it to play If Collier was taken
out, and. though he nearly weakened
twice, he maintained bis contention that
his man should remain or that play
must stop, S. \eial professors from Ihe
University of Virginia attempted to
bring the disagreement to an amicable
end, but Gregory held out, ami finally
the umpire decided to let Collier re-1
main in the game, if the Carolinians
would forfeit the ball to Virginia and
sacrifice 11 fteen yards. Gregory agreed
to this, but Penton declined to play
with Collier in the game. He was
finally prevailed on lo accept the com?
promise, and the game proceeded after
n delay of about twenty minutes, during
which time the crowd had encroached
on tii..- Held ami monopolized a great
portion of the space reserved for the
players. All attempts to put them
bail; w.rc futile, and they were left

Philadelphia Pa., Nov. 2S.?On
Franklin Field this afternoon amidst
the cheers of lli.OUU people, Pennsylvania
closed the second season of unbroken
victories In football by overwhelming?
ly defeating the Cornell College eleven
From start to finish Cornell was never
in the game anil when lime was called
they had but two solitary points lo
place against 4f? for Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania scored 17 points In the
lirst half and 29 In the second. Cornell
scored Us two points oh a safely touch?
down from Brooke fumbling the ball
when It was passed lo him for a kick.
Throughout the entire game with the
exception of a few momi nts in tin- first
hall. Pennsylvania's offensive and de?
fensive piny was as m'agnltlconl an ex?
hibition of fast scientific football as
has ever been seen In this city. Out?
played and swept away before the furi?
ous onslaughts of the Quakers the It Ill
cans Fought bravely, but it was In vain
that their backs hurled themselves
u gainst Pennsylvania's Impregnable
line or attempted to skirt the ends ami
towards the last it only became a
question of time fur the red. blue to
score touchdown after touchdown.
Pennsylvania had the south stand
and before and during the game the en?
thusiastic adherents of the red and
blue cheered and cheered and sang
their college war songs to the oncour
agement of their battling warriors
of the gridiron. Cornell had a section
of the north stand and some three or
four of the red and white strove to en?
courage the Ithicons with their cheers.
Pennsylvania made it( apearance
upon the Held at 1!:10 O'clock ami the
cheers that greeted them was still split?
ting the air when the Cornell boys trot?
ted out. The Ithlcans were given near?
ly as warm a greeting as the home
Ritchie for Cornell kicked oiff at
2:20; Throughout the game the Penn
slyvanla forward opened up the Cor?
nell line almost at will and their backs
were downed before they could get
fairly started. Against such a game
as Pennslyvunla. put up to-day. how?
ever, the greatest leant In the coun?
try would have had desperate work
to make headway against them.
Minds. Colbert, Woodruff, Whnrton,
ami Hull all did great work, but again
the laurels of the game are carried ort'
by Brooke, This great fullback buck?

Some of his punts were tremendous and
Pennsylvania constantly gained from
ten tn thirty yards on the exchange of
kicks between Brooke und YVyckofjf,
and Kiti hie. When the game was over
the crowd surged out Into the field,
and. carrying Brooke off of Iiis feet,
raised him tu the shoulders of shouting
men. and bore In triumph from the
Held. For Cornell Wyckoff fully sus?

Washington, D. c. Nov. 28.?1C some
of the Southern Republican Congress?
men make good their threats the pros?

Ohio and Indiana delegations lusl night
in voting to support the MeDowcll
Glenn-Russcll combination for the of

gressmen Brewer, McCall, Olbson ami
Anderson, Of Tennessee: .1. B. Fortune,
I of North Carolina; ex-Collector Archie
Hughes, ot Tennessee, and a number
Of State politicians from Kentucky ami
North Carolina. A heated discussion
ot Hie Situation followed, in which u
was repeutedly asserted that neither
.McKinley nor Harrison could secure
the delegations from these two South
? in States at the next Presidential Con?
vention after trio refusal of their dele?
gations to support the Southern can?
didate for doorkeeper. Twenty-two 61
the twenty-four Southern Republi?
can Congressmen will caucus to-night
10 decide whom they will support for
. lie of Ib.- House OftlCCS. It heilig the
belief thai the combine will win without
tin- material opposition.
The cuacus of Republican numbers
of ih.- lions.- from the Southern Stales
to-night to determine upon a course of
action in connection with the organiza?
tion of the House, was attended
throughout by eleven members. It was
claimed that during the evening that
11 fteen members were present, but when
adjournment was reached only eleven
members chine out.- These were
Willis, of Delaware; Baker, of Mary?
land: Llnncy. of North Carolina: Ander?
son, Olbson, Brown ami McCall. of Ten?
nessee; Dovener. of West Virginia;

tion. Representative Evans, of Ken?
tucky, presided, ami Representative
McCall, of Tennessee, acted as secre?
tary. A telegram was received from
Representative Wellington, or Mary?
land, stating that he was confined to
ib.- house by order or his physician,
otherwise lie would have been there.
The caucus was held behind closed
doors and after adjournment the seve?
ral memb-rs answered all inquiries
by sayitiu they were pledged to secresy
and positively refused to say anything
concerning their action. They eyen de?
clined IO say whether or not any ac?
tion P.a.I be n taken. It was learned
however, that in the course of the meet?
ing the situation was fully discussed
and in better temper than was dis?
played last nicht by tin., friends of Mr.
Tipton, the Tennessee candidate for
Doprkei per, when tin y heard of the ac?
tion of ib.- Ohio and Indiana delegation.
It was said by one of the speakers that
the Southern members should go be?
fore the caucus Saturday night and ask
recognition by the caucus of one of the
principal officers from that part of the
Country. Another speaker advised
meeting a solid column with a solid
I column, and in this spirit a resolution
or motion was offered that the caucus
vole to support Cell. Henderson ror
Clerk: Ed. A. Parker, of Kentucky, for
Bengonnt-nt-Arms, and Mr. Tipton. of
Tennosse, for Doorkeeper.
There was some quenllon us to wis?
dom of this action, bill on,- of the mem?
bers remark, d that they might as well
I ac t thus for were they now go to the
I support of Ihe combination they would
get no "preferred stock." It had all been
Issued. They would nail their Mag to
the mast and go down, if they must,
with colors living.
The proposition to vote for the per?
sons named was agreed to. and the
Tin- Ihiriy-two members from the
Southern States, including Ihe ten from
.Missouri, upon the basis of the caucus
to-night nie divided upon the Clerk?
