The referee was William A. Brooks, of

gave Yale the ball. As the ball js put in
play, and the spectators were still talking
about the appearance of the team, suddenly
a shout from the thousands on anil around
the field was heard. Something had hap
pened. Only one minute and fifty-seven
seconds had elapsed and Yale had scored a
touch-down ami Butterworth was prepar

trick. Two trials had been niade and the
ball advanced thirteen yards into Prince

captain had snapped the ball to Laurie,

ALARVU1G RUMORS ABOUT BLAINE.
Paid To Be a Very Sirk Man, A tiirh Ilia
WasniNGTOK, Nov. 11. Mr. Illaiue was
much worse lnt . night. The attending
physician admit the condition of his pa
tient to be serious. Several times during
yesterday Mr. lilnine sank into an tin
conscious condition from which he had to
be aroused. At times he was unable to
recogniKe the anxious watchers about his
bedside. Mr. Blaine rallied somewhat
Wednesday and the family said with great
confidence that be would be able to be out
in a few days. But instead of improve
ment he was found to be much worse yes
terday. The attending physician, made
three visit.s to the Bltiitio mansion yester
t inlay. Just what the disease is which,
lias attacked Mr. Blaine no one seems able
to find out.
Tin- Ilm tor Will Sny Nothing.
Br. Johnson. the .-.ttertilina physician, will
6'iy nothing, atal the family insists there
were no new d' eiopmcnts in the caea yes
terday. But good authority says the dis
cjise has so far progressed as to affect his
brain and that at times he has been deliri
'is. There is a very evident desire on the
part of the family to keep the details from
the publirf. This was done in the other at
tacks Mr. Blaine suffered from, but to no
purpose. 1 hut the family was alarmed
Yesterday is cettain, i;nd that his condition'
is extremely serious is true, notwithstand
ing the denials. Inquiries at the residence
at 11 p. m. were met by positive statements
that Blaine w.-i'i not worse, all rumors to
the contrary notwithstanding.
