NORFOLK, Oct. 21.?About 2,000 peo?

noon and ?aw Georgetown lick North
Carolina to the tune of 33 to 0.
The Tarheels were hardly In It a
minute. Sometimes they put up fair re?
sistance, but their aggressive tactics
amounted to little up against the strong,
heavy aggregation from Georgetown,

Jacocks, right half-back, and tho left
Only one man went to the side line
from Georgetown, and he simply did so
to make room for the "Great Rellly."
Rellly did not go In on the start, pre?
ferring to give Cromley a little exercise
at leu half, so he himself could size up
tbo North Carolina players, and then,
when he did go In early in the first half,
he knew all the weak points, nnd was
responsible for about all the good plays
In that half and nearly all In tho second.
?\ J? KJS ? UTOIA.?S?D.
Not ono of tlie North Carolina players
did anything to distinguish himself, al?
though Jacocks and Mann tried hard to
make the team's work resuit In a good
showing. As a full team the Tarheels
did occasionally make gains, but In nearly
every instance Georgetown recovered tho
ball before any muterial advance was
mr.de, and before the team from the Old
North State realized what had happened.
Seldom did Georgetown lose the nail on
downs. They did lose It on kick? from
back, and in each Instance the loss of
the ball was made because the team had
been penalized for ViM-sUb? pfciy. The
kick was then tried, because the captain
realized that It would be pretty hard to
gain the lost ground on downs, and pre?
ferred to let the Carolinians get It on a
kick, and then regain possession again
AN AWFUL, DAY.
A sight of the skies and the field sent a
sickening chill through the overcoats of
those who bad to be In attendance upon
tho game. The wind blew most of ilio
time from the north and south, and all
the time from the east and west, and the
drizzling rain sank deep Into one's sys?
tem as he stood out In it and tried hard to
dodge the wind.
In face of all this, however; with occa?
sional drenching showers, when the crowd
hoped, th? clouds would open up and-spill
all their contenta at once n^id have done
with it, there were several hundreds of
ladles out to see what was to be seen,
although as regards favorites, they were
neutral; and many of them wore the com?
bined colors of the two teams.
Rellly, the big halfback or Georgetown,
figured one way or another in every play
mudo by his team after he went In, ex?
cept In the last touchdown.
This touchdown was the sensational
play of the game. Robertson had Just
kicked off for North Carolina, It wus a
god kick, and the ball sailed low down
the Held to within about ten yards of the
goal. Then lio followed his comrades
down after the ball. Hart caught it, and
with the pigskin tucked under his left
arm, ran for tho Carolina goal llko a
stieak of figurative lightning.
It was Retting dark. Ono could scarcely
see the faces of tho players, and the now
rules changing the. goals had confused
many of the spectators. Hurt darted
through the barricade that the Carolinians
liad endeavored to build up before him.
He found a cleur Held, and was rapidly
getting dangerously close to the opposite
The crowd yelled. Most of the people
thought it was a North Carolina man
running through the gloom and rain and
wind, and they cheered bini on. Down,
donw the Held he rnn.Oniid ?is he ? eared
goal the crowd held Its breath in the ex?
citement of Ilio moment, Fven the play?
ers behind him paused in admiration and
The runner had cleared all the plnycr3,
he thought, and It looked like buckwheat
cakes nini honey for a touchdown. Hut
there wan still an obstacle that lie wotted
Robertson, the Tar Ileel full back, was
Julinn'o on tbo spot. He rushed after the
speeding Hurt, and right on the two
yard lino downed the runner In VU
tracks. It was but it momentary de'ay,
however, for on Hie next snip Mnrte'.l
carried tho ball over for a touchdown,
the last, nnd the llerco 'norenmer that
was howling across Hie country prevent?
ed Carroll from kicking goal.
Georgetown worked all along North
Carolina's line, mid found It finito easy
at any point. Some of the. mava plnys
were ?iiii?l to go through, anil the George

No. 1417 G Street, N. \V?
Washington, D. C, Oct. 24.
Democrats at the national capital be?
lieve that the State elections on Norem
ber 3d will be more encouraging to the
party generally than any since 1S92, the
year In which Grover Cleveland was elect?
ed to the presidency for a second term.
The Democrats are absolutely confident
of electing George B. McClellan to the
mayoralty of New York ,by a large ma?
jority. They believe that Hon. Edwin
Warfield will bo elected Governor of
Maryland by a small majority. Republi?
cana themselves concede that the Mary?
land Legislature will be Democratic by
a safe majority.
Two well informed Ohloans, one from
Columbus, and one from the extreme
western portion of the State, have told
me within tho past weok that while Tom
Johnson, the Democratic candidate, for
the governorship, would be defeated by
Colonel Myron T. Herrick, there were
grave doubts as to teli complexion of the
legislature. One of them?both are Re?
publicans?went so far ns to say the
chances were that a majority of the Leg?
islature would be Democratic. Thls^would
mean that Clark, a Democrat, would suc?
ceed Senator Hanna in the United States
Senate. A Clnclnatl man said here last
night that the railroads In Ohio were
greatly wrought up at the prospect 'of
Senator Hanna's being defeated. Perhaps
the people of Ohio think that with Colo?
nel Herrick, a bank president and rail?
road magnate, in the gubernatorial office,
the railroads might bo content to allow
the common run of the people of the
State to have a representative In the
United States Senate.
It is said that affairs in Massachusetts
are in far worse shape for the Republl.
cans than was thought two weeks ngo.
Ex-Go-vernor Crane had a lengthy con?
ference with President Roosevelt at the
White House this week. The nature of the
conversation is not known, of course, but
soon after Governor Crane went home It
was announced that Secretary Moody
would take purl in the Massuehusi??*
campaign, and there enme from low the
announcement that nearly nil the dates
made by Secretary Shaw for speeches In
that State liad been canceled, owing to nls
determination to devoto such ? large por?
tion of his time to the Massachusetts
The campaign In tho Bay Stnte Is said
to be the warmest known In many years.
Nearly every man In tho State of any
noto as ? campaign speaker hns gone on
tbo stump. Your Uncle George Friable
Hoar Is a prominent exception. All urg
ings to lift up his voice In behalf of the
Republican nominees have failed. Sena?
tor Horn? nearly broko with his party
viten tho Imperialistic policy of tho Re?
publicans was announced.
The bloody shirt, moth-eiiten and musty,
bus been dragged forth In Massachusetts,
and Is fluttering bravely nt the van of
the Republican column. It was recently
discovered that Hon. lizoklel M, Kzeklol,
the Democratic nominee, to the ofllco of
Secretary of State, wns a Southern man
und a Connfedernte veteran. Wbon tho
war ended he went North and entered
business In the State of Massachusetts.
Ho hns prospered, nnd Is now a man of

his defeat is now admitted us being al?
most a certainty. MussacliuseltsWas per?

Wonderful Mare Proves Her
Right to Title of Queen of
the Turf by Trotting a Mile
In 1:58 1-2 Under Ad?
Great Ovation Ac?
(By Associated Press.)
MEMPHIS. TENN., Oct. 21.?Lou Dil?
lon, owned by C. K. Q. Billings, of Chi?
cago, and driven by Mlllard Sanders, this
afternoon proved hor right to Uio title
of queen of the turf bs- trotting a mile
under adverse conditions In the remarka?
ble time of 1:53 1-2. The daughter of
Sidney Dillon was paced by a runner
driven by Scott McCoy und another run?
ner followed closely to urge the maro to
a supreme effoVt. Tho track of the Mem?
phis Driving Club never showed to bet?
ter advantage. A strong wind from tho
north swept down tho long back stretch.
After a preliminary go, Sanders an?
nounced that he wns ready for thu start.
The two runners wore aligned In position,
and It waa noticed tliut a strip of board
about one yard wide was fastened to Iho
pace maker's sulky directly under tho
seat. This, it was announced, was used
to keep the dust out of tho mare's face.
At the first start Sanders nodded for
tho word and the flag was dropped.
After going an eighth of a mile Sanders
yelled to McCoy to drive faster, und It
looked as If the mare would catch tho
runner. Making the first turn, the re?
markable work of Lou Dillon could bo
better seen by tho thousands present,
and like a piece of perfect machinery shu
reachod the quarter pole in thirty sec?
The turn for tho back stretch was now
reached; and many expected to seo thu
champion falter because of the. wind.
To the surprise of every one Lou Dillon
seemed to travel faster, and when the
half mile was reached the timer's slate
clicked out r?!i 1-2. A great cheer arose,
and ninny horsemen predicted that a now
record was making. On the far turn
McCoy was forced to whip tho runner
to keep clear of the .trotting marvel,
which was pushing him clos.-ly. Tho
three-quarters pole was passed in 1128 1-2
?and the mire had ? livrea ?-,?? home.
The wind now was an advantage rather
thnn a detriment, and with a .superb
hurst of speed Lou Dillon, urged on by
the shouts of tho driver? of the rurlers,
dashed under tho wire In 1:iiS 1-2.
When the time was flashed to the spec?
tators bats were flung high Into tho air
and cheer followed cheer, Sanders waa
literally lifted from Illa sulky by an
ndmlrlmr thrnijg, w'MI" Mr Hillings was
showered with congratulations,
Two other world's records v.-ero brokon

were poor attempts, tho ball going wide
of the mark.
? La ge Sc?r? a Surpr se.
The large score made by Virginia wna
a surprise, even to tho players them?
selves. After the first touchdown, bow
ever, tho University team were suro of
their ground, having carried tho ball al?
most the length of the field without once
being held for downs, After that It was
only a question of the size of the scorn
and whether Blacltsburg would scoro at
all or not. Two more touchdowns were
made, by Virginia In the first half,
neither of which yielded a goal.
in the second half Blacksburg took ?a
brace and played a splendidly aggres?
sive game, having the University on tbo
defensive much of the time. At the
critical moment, after they bad carried
the ball down tho field In magnificent
runs and rushes to Virginia's 10-yard
line, the Institute team was not strong
enough to measure up to the emergency
and found the Orange nnd BIuo lino un?
yielding. Thus paused tho Virginia Polr
