READY FOR IE GRIDIRON
The G. A. 0. and Columbian
Teams in Fine Form.
EACH SIDE SURE OF VICTORY
The liiK Game "Will Bring; the Local
Football Secson to an End and
"Will Settle the SlncIi-'Moolod 'Ques
tion of Supremacy "Flow the 31en
AVIll Line Up.
All is iu readiness for this afternoon's
big foot-hull battle between the Columbia.
Athletic Club aud Columbian University, ut
National Park. The captains of both teams
are equally confident that victory will
he theirs when the referee's whistle brings
the gamo to a. close. This confidence Is
fully shared by the men, and the eleven
which wins will have no easy task. Everj
tliiug points to tho most hotly contested
aud exciting game neen in this city since
the annual contests "between the George
town College and C. A. C of three years
The remarkable stridetaken by Columbian
this season has placed them in the very
first r.tuk of .Southern football teams. This
fact Is evidenced by their defeatiug the
Winged Arrow men a month ago, as weil
as by the splendid game they put up
against tne University of Virginiu team, two
weeks si'jee. That Capt. Granville Lewis
will use every endeavor to lead his men
re a second victory over the Winged Arrow
men is almost unnecessary to say. Capt.
Wells, on the other baud, is full of grim
determination to retrieve his Joss of the
former game, aud he said last night he
was confident his men would come out on
top or the heap this afternoon.
Enthusiasm among the supporters of the
respective teams has reached a high point.
Yesterday afternoon a mass meetlngof the
Columbian students was held in the yard
or the university for the express purpoto
of practicing the various yells, iwigs and
war cries to be used this afternoon. The
public v.i!l be able to Judge the result of
tlat rehearsal when Capt. Lewis leads his
forces on the field before the game. Th3
brazen-throated rooters will furnish plenty
of that sort ol noise which Is indispensable
at a football game. The 'varsity students
have engaged a number of coaches and
tally-hos, which they will drape with tin
college colors, and from the tops of whlcti
some of the most dyed-m-the-wool rooters
will witness tne game.
The. clubmen will also have several coach
cs filled with Winged Arrow men, who will
be heard fiom during the contest.
There is a tacit agreement that all
rooters and sympathizers of the respective
teams will Feparate into two section!;, the
C. A. C. people to take the northern part
of the grand stand and the 'varsity ad
herents the southern section. This I to
secure a uniformity in the singing and yell
ing of the faithrul.
Bob Cuurch. the famous ex-rrincetoji
player, will act as referee, and Mr. E. S.
Wagenhurst. tlte old UnlverMty of Penn
sylvania player, will perform the duties of
umpire. Tilt selection of I hese two gentle
men will insure a fair and impartial ren
tiering of all decisions. Furthermore, both
these officials are exceedingly strict with
regard tu unfair playiugof any kind, which
Mieaus that all slugging will be barred from
the start. The game will start promptly
at 2:30 o'clock. Tills ltour was selected
as it was thought to conflict least with
After the game both teams will attend
the perfarmance of "El Capitau" at the
Lafayette. It is needless to say that
DeWolf Hopper has been apprised of tho
fact, and that he will greet the athletes in
his usual happy way.
The line-up of the teams is a matter of
uncertainty, which will not be settled until
the teams are on the field. However, t-io
probable line-up as given out by Captains
Wells and Lewis last night is us follows:

meet. This time the men will weigh 133

to $250 that the long Calliorninn can put

The representatives of the boxers met
last night, and agreed to articles, which
covered what looks like a scientific spar
ring match. The two men will start train
ing at once.
The go will take place on December
16, and the condition"! of the match are
an evidence that Burley Is liberal to the
former champifin of the District, but at
the saiue time seems to bs confident that
he can get within 153 pounds.
Tills contest, it seems, wilt be the best
that has been arranged between .these
fellows, and as lined y is Just as strong at
1 53 as he was at 1 58 pounds, because of
his stocky make-up, whuteverchance weight
gives Jo a man he will have.
Burley must do some fine training to
pet down to 153, but us his representative
made tie match, it is only reasonable to
believe that he will be as fit as a veil
tuned fiddle to do battle on the date set
for the affair.

ON THE STAGE.
There wlU be Thanksgiving matinees
at every theater In town this afternoon.
The Ilanlon Bros.' "Snperba," that clla
podridn.of merriment, will be with its once
more, commencing Monday, at the New
National, with Wednesday and Saturday
matinees. This charming spectacle is wH
known to the theater-going publlr, and
each season that we have seen It it has
appeared in anew dress. We are informed
that this season will be no exception to
the rule. The piece is now in the eighth
year of its success, but so remarkable
an entertainment Is it that its popularity
does not seem to wane. Part of this may
be accoiinted for from the fact that the
Hanlons each year introduce much that
savors of novelty into the old piece, so
that when it emerges from their theatorlum
iu Boston it is practically a new pla
under the old name. Its admirers seem
to understand tills and, therefore, the
patronage has always been up to a pay
Charles Frohman will produce "The Salt
of tho Earth,'' with Miss Annie Russell as
its heroine, at the Columbia on .Monday
night. The play is by Joseph Arthur,
who has given the stage such great suc
cesses as "The Still Alarm," "Blue Jeans"
and "The Cherry Pickers." Its title de
notes that it will have a hero of that
rare and lovable type described by phrase
and whom all men and women should
like. The presence of Annie Russell at
the head" of the cast denotes, too, that
this hero will have a gentle and sweet
girl as the object of his adoration. M'aS
Russell's part will be of the same winsome
and charming nature as Esmemlda, the
character in which she first won recog
nition from the American pubiic. The
cast will include George Wilson. Theo
dore Babcoek, Franc Landers, It. A.
Roberts. George W. Denham, Thomas
Bunny, Charles Harris, Annie Russell, Alice
Fischer, Marion Berg, Maud Odell, Charles
J. Greene, Herman G. Vernon, Hernrui
Noble, Robert Robson, Anna Dogwell, and
a band of singers.
James II. Wallick's big scenic produc
tion, "When London Sleeps," returns to
the Academy next week. The opening
scene represents a circus dressing-room,
the hetoine, Queenie Carruthers, being a
slack wire performer, and her lover, David
Englehardt, a famous athlete. The young
lady proves to be a great heircssr and the
second ac:. finds her removed from the old
life and surrounded by wealth an'tV.matty
dancers ns well, on account of the ex
istence of a cousin and a villain of the
deepest dye, who is-determined to secure
her fortune by fair means or foul, foul
rather preferred. From his relentless per
secutions the play derives its action and
the audience is carried from ope starUing
situation to another with rapidity. The
play is elaborsitely staged.
The Lafayette will next week have h
second visit rrom the fascinating little
Japanese musical comedy, "The Geisha,"
which has been running at Daly's Theater,
