GRIDIRON BATTLE
RESULTS IN TIE
VINCENTIANS AND UNIVERSITY
UNABLE TO SCORE
University Player la Ordered Off the
Field for Slugging an Opposing
Player— Holmes Plays
His First Team
Edward L. Moriarty
The riot which Coach Holmes of the
University of Southern California had
expressed himself as anticipating In
yesterday's game between the St. Vin
cent eleven and the U. S. C. team, ma
terialized to a certain extent and re
sulted. In the removal of Nicholson, the
University right end, for slugging Cun
ningham of the, St. Vincent eleven five
minutes after the kick off. Umpire
Tracge.r observed Nicholson In the act
of administering no gentle face mas-
Huge and the player was ordered off the
gridiron.
The teams struggle to a 0 to 0 score
and the Bt. Vincent men tossed away
What apparently should have been a
victory by a continual wrangling among
the players as to the best manner of ad
1 vanclng the ball.
Time and again during the second
half they rushed the ball within strik
ing distance of tho U. H. C. goal line,
only to enter Into a heated discussion
ns to what play should be attempted.
Time was fleeting and the tired line
men of. the University team rested dur
ing the Intermission to come back fresh
for the fray.
Coach Homes for . some reason or
other experienced a Hudden change of
mind as regarded placing a second
cloven on the field and the 'varsity
team went out to battle against the
Vlncentlans.
Tho game terminated with tho best
of feeling manifested on either sldo
after ii. grilling contest in which both
elevens seemed wrought to a nervous
tension over tho rumors of lntendud
foul tactics.
Over anxious to an extreme, the men
of cither team were constantly off side,
though the officials for the most part
overlooked the errors. Severe penalties
w-ero meted out to the Rt. Vincent men
for using their hands when running in
terference, and, coming after tho long
est dashes of tho (lay, lost the Saints
yards of hard earned territory.
Mainly a lino plunging exhibition,
players of either team in several In
stances found their way past the op
posing ends for a swing to the side
lines, where they went down under the
llercest tackling witnessed this year.
Determined not to give way without
a struggle to the last, both teams
fought for all that was in them, and
every inch of -ground was bitterly con
tested before the ■ whistle sounded at
tho end. :
First Half
Tho first half waxed evenly, but in
the second half St. Vincent had the
' IT.'S. C. men on the defensive till the
' close* Thq right wing of the University
was the mont pregnable spot In the line,
and the greatest gains of the S. V. C.
men vero netted by plunges in that
direction. The U. S. C. men also made
their best gains through the forwards,
though they were unablo. to menace
tho St. Vincent goal. . *
Knd runs were not to the fore ana
when the out-riggers were circled too
great a distance across field had be<-n
covered for a warranting of much gain.
In the early part of the game the
•varsity men got away wUhthelr plays
in faster style and ran the St. Vincents
an even race for what advantage ex
isted but' ln tho latter portion were
o'ontent to wage a desperate defense
near their own goal line.
Wllholt outpunted Cass and his foot
work aided the Saints in threatening
the varßlty goal. The closest approach
to a touchdown came in the last half,
when, with the ball nine anoVa half
yards from the U. S..C. line St. Yin-
Jent's failed to make the yard needed
?or the third down and the ball went
over. A few moments before the leather
had gone to U. S. C. on the "-yard
line nfter the St. Vincent men hart
wasted considerable time in disputing
the play to be made. .
The university team was unable to do
much with the St. Vincent line In the
way of advancement, but at critical
moments, with the ball In the shadow
of their goal posts, held and punted out
° Ochoa, whose defensive work has
been the mainstay of the university
team called off the field before the end
of the second half, for the pace was
swift and the fullback had thrown him
self into every play.
Wilhoit and Stuart of the St. Vincent
taam played the strongest kind of bail
throughout the game, repeatedly break
ing up the opposing formations for
loMsesi. ..
Stuart was opposed to one of the
heftiest rushes in the south and more
than held his own in yesterday's game.
"Wllholt's punting netted the St. Vin
cent men an average of forty yards a
punt, which, -followed by the Vincentian
line-gaining ability, kept the ball in
university territory during the major
portion of the game.
KUlott of U. S. 0., with Campbell and
Orlndle of St. Vincent's, were down the
field in fust style under the kicks and
run backs of either team, as a rule,
netted very little ground.
The prettiest play of the day came
oft In the last half, when M. McDonald,
who had taken Seeley'3 place at quar
ter, received Cubs' punt while coming
in fast from where he had been playing
back, evading the university tacklers
for twelve yards.
Jnek White and Hlagler, the varsity
backs, -did most of- the ground gaining
for U. S. Cii Halgler running outside the
St. Vincent tackles for the greatest U.
8. C. gains. ' ■ '
Andreas, Acker and Cunningham
found the university lino open to at
tack and made successive, marches to
ward the goal line, only to lose the ball
when a touchdown seemed imminent.
Heeley, who entered the game at
quarter, outplayed himself and was I
forced from the contest before the call
of time.
But one' place kick was attempted
during the game, and that by Grindle
ot :the St. Vincent eleven, near the
(kliip of the last half. The- ball -.went
JfThe left of the goal posts and fell
ft) i .the one-yard line, from where th«
/ jiilverrlty men I puntod out of danger.
/ The field was in poor condition an a
/result of the recent rains, and . there
* was little opportunity for . fast work,
the men loßlng their feet, as thoy
ploughed through the heavy soil.
Bt. Vincents won the toss and ilo
fended the wont goul. At 3:43 Beat
kicked thirty yards to Heeley, who
tried fur a fair cuteh on the twenty
yard line.'

Cunningham found the weak spot
again for four more. Wllholt's fumble
gave the ball to U. 8. C. men on their
thirty yard line and Jack White gained
four through the 8. V. C. left wing.
Ochoa went over center for five
more, Halgler wns thrown back by
Phelps and fumbled, regaining the ball.
U. S. C. forced the ball down the field
and when held for downs punted to
Campbell on the line. The
game ended on tho forty yard line with
the ball In U. S. C.'s possession.
Second Half
Andreas kicked to Cass on the fif
teen yard line and the leather wns
brought back five yards. Ochoa made
one and Cass punted fifteen yards out
of bounds. . .■-
S. V. C. fumbled but U. S. C. was
again forced to kick, the ball going
twenty yards, Seeley being downed In
his tracks. ■
St. Vincent tried a double pass,
which resulted In a fifteen yard pen
alty, as Acker whs ahead of the ball
when receiving. The gain was fifteen
yards, but the penalty carried the ball
ten yards behind the starting place.
Seeley failed to gain on a quarter
back run and Andreas punted thlrty
flvo yards to White. Ochoa made five.
At this Juncture Seeley left the field
and M. McDonald was substituted.
V. ii. C. lost on downs. On the thir
ty-five yard line Cass punted to Mc-
Donald, who received the ball on the
run, bringing it In twelve yards in
fast style.
On the thirty yard line Grindle tried
for a place kick, and the effort went
wide. U. S. C. punted from the on,e
yard line. St. Vincent brought the
ball back to the ten yard line and on
the third down Andreas failed to make
the distance. In the approach to the
ten yard line, time was lost In deciding
what play should be used and the delay
favored the U. S. C. line men.
Halgler, White and Burek forced the
ball to the twenty-five yard line as
time was called.

Caught.
Spoclal to Tho Herald.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Dec. 2.—
Ben Brumley a convict from St. Louis,
was working In the shipping depart
ment of a shoe factory today and was
ordered to fix up a lot of kindling to
be sent to the home of the manufac
turer. He put a partition in a shoe
box. On one side he put the kindling,
and on the other he prepared a place
for himself.
Brumley packed himself In the box
and was put in a wagon with a con
signment of stuff for outside the walls.
After the wagon had got on the out
side It was found necessary to change
the boxes around, and the box In which
Brumley was secreted was placed in
such a way that he was stood on his
head and had to cry out for help. He
was taken out of the box and placed
In his cell. „ ; .
"CORPSE" ABLE TO TALK
Supposed Dead Man Knocks Coroner
Out of the Wagon and Calls
Him a Liar
Special to Tho Herald.
STILLWATER, 0., Dec. 2.— The
body of a man, supposedly dead, was
found In a field along the Cincinnati,
Hamilton & Dayton rutlroad tracks' to
day. Coroner Kline and a party went
out to investigate. They lifted the man
into a wagon and started for Still
water. Farmers came from all around.
One of them asked: "Is he dead?"
, "Quite dead," answered the coroner,
who was sitting on the tailboard of the
wagon. The next instant he was
sprawling on the ground.
"You're a liar!" Bhoulted tho "corpse,"
who had knocked the coroner off the
wagon. The crowd made a rush for
him, but he escaped. In his wake he
left a well-defined odor, which ex
plained all.
A Woman Oil Operator
Mrs. Mac Ora Hood Russell of
Bloomlngton, 111., is the only woman
oil operator in Kentucky and perhaps
In the United States. Since the dis
covery of; oil there have been but one
or two women who ventured into the
business on a large scale, and so far
as is known this young woman of
some 28 years is the only one to make
a success of the business and today she
Is rated as among the largest opera

ARMY AND NAVY
PLAY TIE GAME
CONTEST ENDED BECAUSE OF
DARKNESS
President and Mrs. Roosevelt and
Many Other Distinguished Person.

Iron Btruggt«
Hy Associated Presa.
PRINCETON. N. J., Dec. 2.-Whllo
tho army>navy football game today
was probably one of the most exciting
ever played between the two Institu
tions, it waa simply a sideshow to the
social football event of the season.
Twenty-five thousand persons wit
nessed the game. From all sections
of the United States came spectators
who ordinarily would not travel a
score of miles to see a football con
test. All this was doubtless brought
about by the fact that President
Hoosevelt was to be present.
Seated In the east and west stands
were the genuine football enthusiasts.
Every play mnrtn by their respective
teams was eagerly watched. There
were uproarious cheers for the quick
dashing runs and sighs for the at
tempts which failed. But the dashing
runs were few.
Once Torney got away for a pretty
run of thlrty-Blx yards which brought
the army supporters to their feet and
Decker, on one occasion, electrified
the navy rooters by almost getting
away from the army eleven.
Only the Bllppery condition of the
field prevented Decker from doing
some remarkable work. He fre
quently got beyond the line, but as
he turned to circle the end, the treach
erous turf played an Important part
for the army and Decker was pounced
upon before he could get a foothold.
Wind Aids In Score
Near the close of the first half the
army got the hall on the navy's thir
ty-flvc yard line on an exchange of
kicks. Howard, who kicked brilliantly
for Annapolis, sent a spiral high in
the air. >••
The easterly wind carried the ball
back toward the navy goal, so that In
distance It had not traveled more than
five yards.
From this point the West Pointers
carried the ball over for a touchdown,
Weeks, Smith, Hill, Christie and Tor
ney carrying the ball.
A West Point player was respon
sible fqr the tie game. On an ex
change of kicks within ten minutes of
the close of the game, the navy had
the ball near midfleld.
Howard sent a beautiful punt back
of the West Point goal. As the navy
eleven started down the field an army
man was detected by Umpire Wrenn
holding one of the navy.
As a penalty the ball was brought
back and given to the navy on the
army's thirty-yard Mne. In a last des
perate effort, the Annapolis boys
placed the ball on West Point's fifteen
yard line.
They lost It, but the army was forced
to kick again. The navy got the ball
on the army's 40-yard line and carried
it back twenty yards. Here they
kicked and Johnson, fumbled. An
.Annapolis boy was on the pigskin in
a flash.
Substitutes Sent In /.',_• .-.;.,,/
: At this point Dousrlas was sent in at
left halfback and Smith at full back
for Annapolis. The change had a
bracing effect on the navy eleven.
With renewed fierceness and a de
termination that would not be denied,
they carried the ball over for a touch
down. Norton, who had replaced
Decker, kicked the goal. It was •so
dark that only the players and the
referee could Bee where the ball had
gone between the posts. When the
Annapolis boys were assured that the
score had been tied, their enthusiasm
was unbounded.
They thew their caps, flaps and any
thing that they could grasp that was
movable Into the air. They did not
cease their Jubilation until the result of
the conference between captains, referee
and umpire announced the conclusion
of the game.
The game had been called four
minutes before time was up, a most
unusual occurrence, but the fast gath
ering darkness made this necessary.
During the excitement Incidental to
the navy's touchdown, the president,
who had kept his eyes riveted on the
game from the beginning, left his seat
In the army stand, accompanied by
President Woodrow Wilson of Prince
ton, secret service men, Secretary Loeb
and a half doaen policemen, and walked
briskly from the grounds.
President Gratified
The president was apparently grati
fied with the hearty reception. From
the time he entered the grounds at the
southwest corner of Osborne field until
he reached the box In the navy's sec
tion the cheering was continuous and
he received a similar greeting as he
crossed to the east stand. • '
President Roosevelt's day in Prince
ton was a very enjoyable, one. From
the moment he stepped from his train
until he departed for the capital he was
cheered by the football spectators..
The president's train arrived at the
little Princeton station at 12:22 p. m.
and was greeted by 2000 persons who
had assembled on the edge of the
campus.
The president and Mrs.. Roosevelt
were welcomed by President Woodrow
Wilson, and after the greetings . the
party entered currlajres and started for
the home of Dr. Wilson. •.>.'<
Four mounted guards surrounded the
carriage in which were the president
and Mrs. Roosevelt, Secretary .Root and
Dr. Wilson. In the carriages following
were Mr. and Mrs. Cowles and Secre
tary Loeb. The party remained at
President Wilson's home until 2 p. m.
Secretary Taft, Assistant Secretary
Newberry, Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., Miss
Ethel Roosevelt and other members of
the party on the president's special had
luncheon on the train.
After the president left the football
field, he entered the club house of the
Princeton Athletic association, where
he remained about twenty minutes.
It was 3:27 o'clock when the presi
dent's party boarded the special train,
but owing to the heavy travel the spe
cial did nnt leave here until 6:IC.
Among those who saw the same were
Mrs. drover Cleveland. J. P. Morgan
and former Secretary of the Navy Paul
Morton. Mrs. Cleveland occupied a
seat In the president's box on the navy
side of the field. Mr. Cleveland did
not attend the srame.

LIFE AS IT IS LIVED IN
AMERICA'S METROPOLIS
Father Knickerbocker's Big Bealty Holdings— A
Trip Along Petticoat Lane— Condemned
Gambling fioom— High Living
Special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, Dec. 8.-The City of
N«w York Is paying a pretty penny for
the downtown ■ property which It elm
ply must have for 1U public buildings.
One plot alone of less than hnlf an
ncre cost 15,000,000— the price paid for
the great Central park nlte about 70
years ago. Yet, In the matter of buy
ing real estate for public purposes, the
early doges of New York seem to have
been fnr-slghted. When Father Knick
erbocker first began investing In park
property on the Island of Manhattan
In the early part of the last century he
probably had no Idea that before an
other hundred years rolled over his
head his holdings In that particular
kind of realty would make him a
richer old man than any of the Antoro,
or all the Astors together, In fact. As
an Instance of hla unconscloui fore
sight his fine exhibit as a real estate
speculator Is shown in Central Park,
which, with the adjoining Manhattan
square, he bought In 1839 for $5,000,000.
When he made this purchase and pro
posed walling the property In for the
purposes of a breathing place and
pleasure ground for his sons and
daughters for all time the idea was
ridiculed by many of the townsfolk,
Mho looked upon what Is now Fifty
ninth street as a distant country or,
at least, a rural district too remote to
be of any Immediate concern to New
Yorkers. • •■■; • ' >•',••,'' ■■'',; '• ■■■;
In Petticoat Lane
AH the beautiful women In New
York seem to take their exercise In
Fifth avenue; no other street can show
so many In such cmart attire and of
such obvious breeding at any time of
day. Gowned In the richest of silks
and velvets, they lean back luxurious
ly In their handsomely appointed vic
torias; wrapped in costly furs and
swntlind In veils they dash by in their
swiftgolng motors; In the smartest of
tailored suits, with every hair of their
heads brushed and waved to perfec
tion, they parade on the sidewalks with
a pmart looking Boston terrier or a
fluffy Pomeranian on a string. They
ore all alert, busy and Intent on some
thing, whether it be attendance at a
charity meeting or an appointment at
the dressmaker's.
Now and then corhes a group of
girls, safely chaperoned, from some
school. They swing along In twos, full
of delight at all that Is going on and
not missing anything. In contrast to
them are the little errand girls with
whom Fifth avenue habitues are famil
iar. They climb In and out of the
stages or trudge along carrying big
boxes from the dressmakers' to the
homes of wealthy patrons. There la
not much Joy In their faces, and little
wonder, for they know that their bur
dens contain more money represented
In a dress than they can earn by a
year of hard work.
Passing of Big Suds Parlor
At the Manhattan end of Brooklyn
bridge there Is a saloon which averages
a Bale of SO barrels of beer a day. It
la probably the greatest suds parlor in
the world. The yearly profits are $75,
000. These facts are stated preliminary
to the more Important one that the sa
loon Is soon to vanish. The city needa
the room for an extension of the termi
nal facilities. Probably no other sa
loon In New York does so big a busi
ness as Andy Horn's. It ia really a
hotel, but not one customer In a thou
sand guesses that, i In hot, dry weather
It Is no uncommon thing for 3000
thirsty souls to, cross Its threshold
during the day— parched and anxious
going in, moist and Joyous going out.
On a mild, sunshiny, mellow day, like
today, with Just a hint of autumn cool
ness In the air, not more than 75 bar
rels of beer are Bold; but on a scorch
ing day In August more than 100 bar
rels float across the bar In schooners,
echoppens, seldels. steins, shells, stitn
gels and promlnentes. Lashlns of whis
ky, too, are consumed on the premi
ses every day. And at least four
cases of champagne are sold every 24
hours. The total draught of moist Joy
sold at Andy Horn's every day Is
enough to float a steam yacht of six
tons' displacement.
Women Paid for Ideas
The old superstition that women do
not possess the Inventive faculty has
been pretty well exploded. It Is true
that all kitchen utensils have been
Invented by men, yet In the field of
business, and particularly the adver
tising business, women are doing the
best work today In New York. It was
a woman who Invented "Jim Dumps'*
r.nd "Spotless Town." Another woman
has recently devised a calendar, at the
top of which she placed a large
painted pansy. By a little sliding ar
rangement the pitnsy pulled down re
veals a packet of court plaster. Un
der the court plaster was the legend,
"I'll stick to you when others cut you."
Below was a space for an advertise
ment. She took this model to a brew-
Ing company. They bought It and paid
her $100 for the Idea. Since then she
has not worked any more for $6 a week.
The Noise Evil
All the laws against noises In New
York city sein to operate against the
poor hucksters, but none is In working
order against big corporations and
contracting companies. Should a ped
dler appear in one's backyard and be
gin bawling, "Put up yer clo' linos. Put
up yer clo' lines," he would be dis
turbing the peace of the neighborhood
in a way which should cost htm a $10
line. On a proper complaint the police
could arrest him. Such soliciting of
business by clothes-line hangers is ex
pressly forbidden. The exact letter of
the ordinance rends: "The peddler of
clothes lines shall abstuin and refrain
from all shouting and crying out of
his wares and occupation In the back
yards of residences." He may adver
tise himself In the street during ped
dling hours, or from 8 a, in. to 9 p. m.,
as much ns he pleases, but he has no
right to yell Into rear windows. No
account Is taken of the outrages of the
elevated and surface car lines. Since
the electrical equipment was put In on
the elevated roads and the heavy mo
tors In the surface cars there Is no liv
ing along Third or Sixth avenues.
Kents have fallen and merchants find
it Impossible to keep female help. The
noise Is Intolerable. Yet no police in
terference has been rported.
Long Hours for Bankers
Hank officers of New York have a
long day stretching fur beyond the
hour when the bank, doors are closed.
Many banks ure not actually deserted
until after 5 o'clock, and most bank
employes report for duty Boon after
8:30 In the morning. The luncheon
hour for bunk officers Is notably short,
and In some banks the whole body of
employes, from president down, take
luncheon on the premises. The chief
officers are apt to take the opportunity
of this gathering to discuss details of
business, for the heads mid the sub
urdlnutc'H take luncheon In different
parts of the building.
Condensed Gambling Room
In these modern days of condenaed
living in collapsible Hutu, with < com.
pressed parlors, accordion bedrooms,
Invisible dining rooms and self-rising
kitchens, a collapsible poolroom Rhould
be nothing odd. The New York gam
bler Is nothing If not up to date. The
latest fire escape, the newest steel
door,, the most modern alarm for this.
Hence the "folding gambling den." The
police of the Mercer street station
raided a place suspected of being a
gambling house. They found no trace
of the usual Implements of the game,
and were about to depart when the
captain paused and propounded this
conundrum: "What has four legs nnd
feathers like a chicken?" Then all the
eyes turned upon a folding bed. This
was quickly let down. In the bed, in
stead of bedclothes, were a roulettp
wheel and a sweatbonrd sleeping
peacefully, while a faro box and 2000
chips had been hastily spanked and
put to bed. An Inoffensive looking, lit
tle, upholstered tabourette, with fan
cy scroll work and Jeweled sides, was
found to contain mi electrical key to
control the game. It was a "brace."
Chinese In New York
Chinamen In New York are.con
stantly broadening the field of their
activities. Already many of them are
employed as household servants and
valets and a few days ago one of them
opened up an American tailor shop.
Not a few have gone into the station
ery and tobacco business in a small
way. The first Chinese tailor to open
on atelier In New York Is Yum-Chuun,
originally of FU-Chau and latterly of
San Francisco, "I like not that Pa
cific so much as that Atlantic," he
said confidentially to the oriental trav
eler who met him In Chinatown the
other day. "They no like Chinamen In
Cala, no matter If he high or low
caste. I meet one rich Joss man, him
bishop you call, an.d he say come along
New .York with me: you no like this
place. Ho I come by me by."
High Living Indeed
The quietest place In the whole world
at night Is Wall street. Many of the
big financial magnates have found
this out and they have fitted up sleep-
Ing apartments on the top floors of
the big skyscrapers. A. whisper may
be heard a block in this quarter after
nightfall, and at midnight there Is no
spot on the western plains half so
lonely and deserted. Roof restaurants
In the financial district are becoming
popular for the same reason. There
Is an air of quiet about these places
200 feet above the street level which
attracts the man who has been In the
hum of the street all morning. There
will be a downtown Waldorf or St.
Regis one of these days, and It, will
have no sleeping rooms below the
tenth floor. About the only noise
heard in Wall street after 6 o'clock
is the distant toot of whistles in the
barhor, and on foggy nights the dreary
drone of the ferryboat horns.
Tests for Policemen
An almost devilish Ingenuity is ex
hibited by the men who make tests
among roundsmen and patrolmen for
promotion. One of the most diaboli
cal schemes to disqualify fat and
pudgy policemen is ■ called the "pea
nut test." The competitors for promo
tion are obliged to run past a small
peanut stand and grab' a handful In
their flight. The man who shows the
largest number of peanuts gets the
highest mark. At a recent test climb
ing a rope hand over hand was one of
the stunts. Another . extremely inter- i
estlng feature was called "cheese It, '
the sarge." AH the men took part in
this and the results were very close.
The men worked in relays here. Fifty i
roundsmen were placed In comfortable
positions about, the room, most of
them reclining and feigning sleep. A
trolley car going at one end of the
room was suddenly rung announcing
the coming of a sergeant. The winner ,
of this contest had strapped on his '
belt, placed his helmet on his head and
begun his patrol in four seconds; the
loser did the same thing in six, which
gives a fair idea of the closeness of
the contest. and the skill of the men
taking part in It.

lungs all hut gone and discharged him
