TMJi^WORJJD op ROSEBEN WINS AGAIN. JU \S BKILLIAXT HACK. -Davy Johnson Has Faith in Big Sprinter and Profits Well. Davy Johnson did not lose faith In his great •printer Rosebon at die Aqueduct racetrack yes urday. oven though tho biff and little bettors did. and the eon of Ben Strome came to the re? cur of the spectacular plunger once more by winning; th* Bay View Handicap at seven fur loncs. under tlie cruFhins Impost of 140 pounds. The layers were wary, and opened Roseben at even money, but In the absence of any support worthy of the name, and In the fare of a wild plunge on Hot Toddy, his price went s. a ring to 8 to 1. As th« horses were on the way to the poet Johnson pot busy and placed upward of $4,000 «n Roseben. co that as the barrier was released 8 to 5 was the ruling quotation. He told a friend that he averaged about 2 to 1 for his money. Four horses Trent to the post with Roseben. and each one had a strong following. Hot Toddy was played from 4 to 1 to 9 to 5. Oxford at tracted a big play at 4 to 1. Ben Ban was pounded down from 7 to 1 to 5 to 1. while even Ormonde's Right came In for some support •round Bto 1. Roseben would have gone to the poet practically unbacked if It had not been for hie owner's commission right at the end, which •mi* naturally followed by many who stayed In Qw ring long enough to rote th« play. The handicappers lost faith In IV>«aben. be cause of a feeling, more or less general, that be does not like the mud, and from the fact that th« e'stance *n»s seven furlongs. They recalled his defeat by Oxford, at Jamaica, over a heavy track, at six furlongs, under the same weight ar rangement, and many were loud In their crit icise of Davy Johnson for sending his good herea to the pest under conditions that Invited defeat. "The wise on*« were fooled, however. and Mr. Johnson justified, as Roseben ran one el the beet^raee* of his career. Shaw took him to the front In the first fur long, and forced a pace which had Ben Ban and Hot Toddy reeling and dizzy behind him by the tine the field was well straightened out for home. With Hot Toddy and Ben Ban soundly beaten. Oxford moved up and gave challenge, but he could not run the big sprinter down, al though Fhaw took no chances, and rode Roseben cut to win V? two lengths. Hot Toddy and Ben Ban stopped pi badly from their efforts to out run Roseben that Ormonde's Right came along and earned third money. The remarkable popularity of Roseben was demonstrated as he passed the judges a winner. The majority of those in the stand stood up and cheered and applauded as if each one had wat ered on his chances. It was a spontaneous out burst for a good horse, and those who had lost on th« race> were generous enough to forget •verything in doing honor to an equine hero. The day was cold and bleak, with occasional showers, and the track was heavy and sticky with soft mud Lender these adverse conditions the crowd was unusually large. Three favorites end a second choice won, nhi:e two outsiders brought joy to the lucky few who wagered on their chances. The eterplerhase for maid'--: three-year-olds resulted in a howling farce. « >nly four horses went to die poet. Jurist refused* early In the race and Paprika hopped over hie fences In such a slovenly manner that he was soon far In the rear. Dulc:ari and Locked Out. which wore about eo.ual favorites in th« netting, ran in clnso company moFt of the way. with Dulclan having all the best of it until lie treat sprawling at the peoopd jump from home. This left I^-ck^d Oat to come on find win as ho pleased by a furlong or so from Paprika, which earned Keor>nd money by standing up. Silver Wedding was j.hmgred on and backed from 4 to i to S to 5 In the fir-it race, with Mint la end Edna J. .■•>■■!■ the beet liked of the others. All three finished outside ihe money however, as Prince Frederick made a show of his company, while Society Bud ran second and Firebrand third. Plnud. with Millar up, was keel out ns one of th* surest winners of the day in the third race and backed from 7 to 5 to even money, but he was beatf-n two heads by Rockinerham and Fire Opal In a spirited drive. Rockingharn had not sterted since the meeting at Hal.-ni on July b\it a wise few profited by hie victory, as he was barked from IS to 1 to 10 to l. The finish was so close between four horses that a majori ty of those in the stand did not agree with the plach^g of the judge;;. To thoss above, the flni6h It looked as if Citrons, which finished on the ex treme outside, had won, while those below the fir 1 - thought Fire Opal had earned the purse, Th" judges were In the <.>■> position to see. bomver, ••' thMr placing was undoubtedly correct.

His followr ra were not entirely downcast, however, as he was second on Society Bud and Oxford, at play able prices. The Jockey honors were pretty well divided, as Finn. J. Hennessey, Shaw. C. Rosa and Homer rode one winner each. J. J. Mclaughlin, who trains Fire Opal, and Julius Bauer, the owner of Illusion, both clnlmed the services of «■}. Burns, the Jockey, in the third race. As they could not agree, the matter was submitted to the stewards, who decided in favor of Mclaughlin, and Julius Bauer scratched his filly. Klre Opal waa beaten a ehor: head. Terry McGovern had a starter in the third raco named Spring Beauty. He stood in a forward place in the grandstand and rooted loud and long for the filly, even though she was struggling along far back in the ruck. His enthusiasm amused the on lookers, but Otherwise was totally wasted. Previous winners of the Bayvtew Handicap were Clifton Forge, Israelite, Lux Casta and St. Finnan. ROW IX BASEBALL CLUB. Litigation Will Follow Meeting of Brooklyn Stockholders. Litigation In the New Jersey courts will follow the annual meeting of the Brooklyn Baseball Club, which was held in the First National Bank Build- Ing, at No. 1 Exchange Place. Jersey City, yester nny afternoon. The factions In the organization led by Charles 11. Ebbets and Edward Hanlon clashed, and som« inside baseball history Is likely to he told as a result. The Ebbeta faction was in the majority yesterday, and voted to elect Mr. Ebbets. his 6on. Charles H. Ebbets, Jr.; Henry W. Medious, Albert C. Wall and Robert A. Wright directors of the- club. The last named la elected to take the place of the late Harry C. Vander horst, of Baltimore. In casting their ballots Hanion and Ferdinand A. Abell voted for Hanion. Abell and Howard Griffiths, of Jersey City. Hanion and Abell cast 1.203 shares and Ebbets the remainder, or 1.251. Hanion at once protested the election, claiming that Ebbets, his eon and Metllcus are not eligible as directors for the coming year. He bases his claim on the ground that they were directors last year and failed to file a certificate of election with the Secretary of State of New Jersey. The penalty for a failure to file such a statement is that the men so elected are not eligible to election to succeed themselves until one year has elapsed from the end of their terms. Hanlon's protest was not heeded, and the matter will !>o taken into the courts. • After the meeting Hanion said that he had begun a suit in the Court of Chancery of Now Jersey to compel Charles H. Ebbets. the president of the club, and Henry W. Medicus, tho secretary and treas urer, to refund several thousand dollars alleged to have been drawn by them from the treasury as salaries, and in excess of the amount allowed by the certificate of organization, during the year's 1&05 and IMS. Mr. Hanion claims that the salaries of the president and treasurer are fixed by the charter as *4.'«« and I2,OO'», respectively.

JudfftaS iiy reports from Princeton and New Haven, there H a disposition to belittle the chances of the football elevens of Princeton and Yale in their coming struggle on Saturday. The plaint comes from New Haven that Captain Morse is in bad condition, while the tule of woe from Prince ton Indicates that Bddle Dillon, tho clever quar terback, it still suffering: from some bard usage in the' West Point game, and that the whole team Is In poor condition physically. It Is tlie same clri story, which must be accepted with a "grain of salt." <'aptain Morse will probably be ready for his b»Ft effort on Saturday, and Eddie Dillon Is likely to be the life of the Tigers. If either should bo nh^ent their r'sp-jrtlve teims will suffer, as Cap tain Morse Is second only to Knox as a consistent ground gainer for Vale, while Eddie Dillon has no equal at quarterback for Princeton. In comment ing editorially o.i the Brown game, the Yale "Yews" says: A reflection on the era me with Brown Saturlay leaves the average man undecided In his inter pretation of tho same as a test of the team 0 strength, and of Us chances in the two remaining games of the season It must be admitted that Yale was by no means the equal of Brown In the first half, lor tho lait-^r gained almost nt will both around the ends and through the line. Their team worked as a unit an.l all their plays were started quickly and were well executed. Yale, on the other hand. seemed bewildered by Brown s swift, agßresslve attack, missing tackle after tackle in a vain attempt to stem the onslaught. The second half, however, had a different story to tell. Brown being kept on the defensive nearly all the time. The team Showed that It had considerable strength tucked away somewhere, so that, when put on the defence ir. this half, the men In the line went Into th* game hard nnd smashed plays which. In the lirst half, they had allowed to sift through to the secondary defence. In the latter pnrt of the. game things went well because every man pitched In and fought for what ne sot. The university is squarely behind tho captain and the team to en courage them to go hard into every play which is made during the coming week of preparation and In the game Ba turd Nothing more could be asked, and the body of undergraduates will rißhtly place the utmost faith in their team. * "The Prlncetonian," In commenting on the West Point game, says: The result of Saturday's game at WeFt Point, al« though not all that the undergraduates expected, was fair. West Point's ability to advance the ball and force a kicking game showed a lack of defen sive strength more clearly than had been foreseen. In addition to this, the. fact that the university team was utterly unable to gain ground consistent ly until toward the close of the second half comes as a surprise to Princeton men. The only other game, which save any Indication of a lack of offen sive strength was th?* first period of the Cornell game. judging from the performances of the Army team during the last two weeks, there was every reason for expecting a most difficult contest, and whether comparative scores count for any thing is a matter for the future to reveal. The work of the team was certainly not as satisfactory as that of the previous week, anil, whatever the cause of this let-uu. a great deal of -hard work must be accomplished during the present week. The great danger of a Slump, and particularly the danger of overflneness In physical trim, are only too well known to the. coaches, and if the present Indications point in that direction it is safe to say that they will be carefully guarded against. Sat urday's game was valuable as revealing to the coaches and players the faults of the team, which it was Impossible to discover in the Dartmouth game, end its result will show the line of work which must be pursued in correcting them during the final week of preparation for the pants with Vale. Now Is the time for final effort in all mat ters pertaining to football. Princeton can and must beat Y*le, and let it not be said of any man that he ha« shirked his share of the last week's work, even If it consists only in supporting the team. FOOME BACK IX GAME. Yale Captain Nursing a Lame Knee Regulars Rest. [By Telegraph to The Tribune.] New Haven, Nov. 12.— Captain Sammy Morse's knee, which was Injured In the Brown game on Saturday, was so lame to-day that he did not take part In the practice. Fears nre expressed that he will not be at his best for the Princeton pame on Saturday. Room" returned to the squad, and lines up with the 'varsity for signal practice, lie also played In the last ten minutes of the scrimmaging between the second and third eleven?, scoring a touchdown. He still limps, but will start the game against Princeton. "Tad" Jones was the only 'varsity regular to play In the fifteen minute scrimmage with the scrub. He ran the eleven for two touchdowns. The 'varsity backs to-day were Linn, Bomar and Werneken. The practice was devoted to offensive play. Alcott was not in uniform, and Torrey. Tale's best sprinter, covered right end. Burch. the quar ter miler. played for the first time since he broke his collarbone in the opening game of the season The coaches were Camp. Rockwell. Hlnkey, Hoyt. Ferguson. Wilson. McCUntock nnd Morris Kly. Captain Coy, of the freshman eleven, wrenched his knee so badly in the game with Princeton. '10, on Saturday, that lie may not be able to rlav against the Harvard freshmen. A mass meeting was held In Alumni Hall to-night, at which Professor George H. N'ettleton and Frank B. Butterworth spoke. Cheers and songs were practised. TEXXY RUNS THE TIGERS. E. Dillon Not in Condition to Prac tise with Princeton Eleven. [By Telegraph to The Tribune. J Princeton. X. J.. Nor. 12.— Tigers were in poor condition to-day as a result of Saturday's game, but the Princeton eoachers had the regular out for some hard work In secret. "Eddie" Dillon. ■who was injured on Saturday, is still in such a bad condition as to cause some alarm. He did not play, and Tenny had charge of the regulars and put them through a fast scrlmmarn against the ecrub. There was no scoring on either side, and after a run around the field the "varsity retired to the field house. The coa«h«T3 are here in fore© and will devote their time to strengthening the defence. Daub made such a goo.i showing at guard against West Point that he will probably be a fixture !n the line. With Daub at guard and Herring at tackle Stanard may have to look on when the Tigers line up ngainst Tale. A mass nioetinsr was held In Alexander Hall to night to rehearse the football songs for the gam-) with Yale. Among those who spoke were W. W. Roper, the head coach; W. IT. Edwards and Cap tain Dillon. HARVARD PLAYERS REST. Lincoln Has Been Changed from Left to Right Halfback. [By Telegrapn to The Tribune. ] Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 13.— More than half of the Harvard 'varsity players were not called out for practice to-day. Starr, Osborne. Burr. Kers berjr, Xewhall and Wendell did not even go out to the. field. The tubstltutes had a long signal drill and then a short line-up against the second team. In which the 'varsity men snored a Dingle touch down by playing fast football. A final change, was made In the 'varsity line-up this afternoon, Lincoln being shifted from left to right halfback, where he will play from now on. Miller and Orr, the substitute ends, got Into the frame after nn absence of two weeks on account of minor injuries. Their return was welcome to the coaches, as Harvard has been badly off for substitute ends. Part of the afternoon was devoted to practicing drop kicks from the scrimmage. Hall doing the kicking. About half of Ms trios were successful SLIGHT INJURY TO NAVY CENTRE. Captain Spencer Will Be Back in the Line- TJp on Saturday. Annapolis, Nov. 12.— Slinpluff. who has played centre on the Navy football team the entire season without being Injured, turned his ankle in tho game with Bwarthmora on Saturday. He will be kept out of the scrimmage work this week. The roaches are decided nlK.ut sending him Into Saturday's gam*, as there Is no second string man of anywhere r.Tr his experience or ability. Brandt or light may be used. Captain Spencer will be, in the line-up on Satur day. Richardson, who has been nt fallback most of the year, showed up well at end la the Bwarth more game, and will probably be a nxim.-- at that position for the rest of Iha season At the other end violet Dafrue s*>enis to have the call, after a long, liard fight. The midshipmen are d.iily prnctlalng th- *on=:s ■•' ■'■ yells that I! •• will use | n Philadelphia at the Arjny-.Niivy game. For the first lime this year they appear to Le optimistic over tho outturns of the game DR. ELIOT OX FOOTBALL. Says Game Has Been Improved Viulcr the Revised Code. Boston. Nov. 12— Football under the new rules". an demonstrated In the Harvard-Carlisle game at Cambridge on Saturday, meets with favorable com ment from President Charles W, Eliot of Harvard Inlverslty In an Interview muda public to-day. President ni'ot. whose attitude toward the sport List year nuide it seem probable that football would soon be drrpped from Harvard's athletic schedule, attended Sittirday's contest and expressed hl» en joyment of the game, which, he said, appeared to him "free from unnecessary roughness." Presi dent Eliot said: I saw the game between Harvard and Carlisle at the Stadium, and 1 can say frankly that 1 eniojed it. I conKider that many of the things which ap peared to mo to be objectionable under the system employed In former years have been eradicated by the new rules, or. perhaps, by the new way or play- Ing the game. The oontest. in so far as I could see. was free from unnecessary roughness and there was apparently no brutality. Much has been clone, to my mind, in improving the game by the rules committee this year, and there only retrains further improvement in other years along the same lines. I hope to see the game again improved by additional modifications along the same general lines as this year. Football Is considered under probation at Har vard this year. A committee appointed several months ago is still discussing the subject of ath letia sports with special reference to football, but has not as yet submitted its report. President Eliot's views as expressed to-day, it Is expected, will have some weight with the committee in recom mending that football be retained on the Crimson's athletic calendar.

On the floor was a hatchet which had been used to drive the two big nails. At the hospital she said that she had b»en struck on the back of the head, and did not know who had driven the nails through her hands. Sl.-> 13 only nineteen years old.
