Yale Shotas One JVeW Tlay
Corey Scored Third Touch Down Against Tufts
on Quick Quarterback Run.
IB? Tatevraph to Th« Triton-.]
New Haven, Oct. s.— Scouts of other col
leges who came to see the game with
Tufts to-day in the hope of learning
something of Yale's plan of attack undor
the new rules went home disappointed.
Yale won by a score of 17 to 0, but -n
only a single instance was anything tangi-
Mi uncovered by Captain Fred Daly's men
different from the hackneyed attack of
former masons. This was a formation In
which, for th* first time this season, the.
Yale quarterback ducked through the- cen
tre of th* line with the ball.
Acting Captain "Pop" Corey kept this
move as a scoring feature, holding It in
reserve until Tale had the ball five yards
from th» Tufts goal, and the third down
had been called. The play took Tufts by
surprise and Corey dashed through the
gap for Tale's third and last touchdown of
the day. The play was more effective, be
cause Corey made it or a delayed run and
did not dash ahead until th«» Tufts' tackier?
had broken through upon the Yale half
backs, leaving a wide hoi" for his plunire.
All of Yale's other plays were tradi
tional line plung*? and a few forward
passes. Tufts reeled off dazsling line

Philadelphia. Oct. s.— The University of
Pennsylvania football team defeated Frank
' lin ard Marshall here to-day by a score of
IT to 0. While the Quakers were never in
danger, they had to fight for every foot
'of ground. The visitors, coached by Mount
Pleasant, once of the Carlisle Indians, han
\ dled the ball remarkably •well, and besides
i forcing Pennsylvania to kick continually
I on.'** took the ball on downs inside the
i 5-yard line.
The Quaker?" were not able 'to score in
: the first period. although they had the ball
i dangerously near the goal line when time
' was called. In th* second period the Red
and Blue got its offensive machinery into
'■■ action and in seven plays took it over the
j line for a touchdown, Mercer making the
j score.
• The second touchdown was the result of
I a forty-five-yard advance In nine plays. A
' forward pass fumbled and recovered by
Large opened the way to the third touch
j down.
Pennsylvania made much better use of
the. forward pass than in any of her pre
vious games. Instead of trying the pass
directly over the line of scrimmage the
ball was snapped to the side, much like
j Canadian rugby football. This kind of
passing was effective and as a result Perm
; sylvania lost tho ball only once on the
. forward pass. . ... _ -
! A. jftjod many penalties were inflicted by
the officials, especially for offside .play.
Mercer was the star of the game and made
many long runs for the Quakers. His line

Says Mistake on Army Building
Was Made by Officials.
Mayor Gaynor Likely to Make
Investigation of His Own on
Gambling- and 'Vice.
- Well informed persons were savins last
night that. Mayor Gaynor would probably
take no action on the report of .President
Mitchel of the Board of Aldermen on the
vice crusade started by him as acting:
Mayor and that. *> far a Mr. Mitchell
recommendation that he be removed went,
Police. Commissioner Baker was perfectly
sure of his place.
The Mayor is said to feel that Mr Mitchel
was advised and ursed to make the cru
sado by political enemies of the Mayor.
Feeling this way, Mayor Gaynor to« not
Intend to pive these enemies any satisfac
tion, it is said, by following up the move
ment started by President Mitchel. Later
he will probably make investigations of his
own and act along lines of his own In curb
ing gambling and the social evil.
President Mitchel would not comment
yesterday on the letter written by Mayor
Gaynor apologizing to tlie officer in charge
of the United States Army Building, in
Whitehall street, because the Police. Com
missioner had informed him that gambling
was being conducted there. Mr. Mitchel
said he thought a letter he had written to
Lieutenant Colonel M. Gray Zalinski would
speak for itself, and ho proceeded to give
out copies of it. In it he put the mistakes
made first up to an examining: inspector of
the Mayor's Commissioners of Accounts
and secondly up to the Mayor's Police Com
missioner. .
Mr. Mitchel opens his letter to Lieutenant
Colonel Zallnskl as follows:
Having been apprised through the col
umns of th<» press of a letter addressed to
you yesterday by his honor the. Mayor,
dealing with a certain communication .sent
to you by the Police Commissioner notify
ing" you that the United States Army Build
ing-. at the southeast corner of Whitehall
and Pearl streets, was being conducted as
a gambling house. I feel that you should
have a statement of facts in this matter.
The letter goes on to say that Edward V.
Amos, an examining inspector in the office
of the Commissioner of Accounts, handed
in a report in which he spoke of having
visited on orders a poolroom at "southeast,
corner of Whitehall and Pearl streets,"
and that he had lost money on several
horses there.
With a view to taking action ogainst
premises in which it was reported that
gambling was going on. Mr. Mitchel wrote,
he directed the Police Commissioner to in
form the owners of all premises named in
a list sent to him, and designated as
"Schedule A," of the existence of gambling
on the premises. The letter goes on to
Before forwarding the list to the Com
missioner of Police the office of the Com
missioners of Accounts had. on my instruc
tions, obtained a iej>ort as to present own
ership from the Title Guarantee, and Trust
Company, with respect to each of the prem
ises named in this schedule A. I tlnd that
the company reported the United States to
be the owner of premises on the southeast
corner of Whitehall and Pearl streets. This
will explain to you the notice received from
the Police Commissioner with respect to
this building.
On investigation of the matter I find that
the examining inspector of the Commis
sioners of Accounts, on the day of his ex
amination, mistakenly reported the south
east corner in place of the south v.-" cor
ner, at which point he had in fact discov
ered gambling in progress.
As to the mistaKe tnade. m notifying the
managers of the United States ' Appraiser's
"tores that gambling was going on there,
President Mitchel writes to Lieutenant
Coltinoi Zalinnki that a letter was received
a the Mayor's office from a woman who
said her boy was gambling at night at No.
106 Morton street, and asking that the place
be- closed. After quoting the letter Presi
dent Mitchel goes on to write:
' This complaint, among a vast number of
other complaints, was not investigatf-d by
the staff of the Commissioners of Accounts
because of lack of time. ! The address com
plained of. however, was included in the
schedule marked "Schedule B," and trans
mitted to the Police Commissioner in my
letter of September 16. and as to this list
lie was specially instructed to make an in
vestigation and learn the truth or falsity
of the complaint before taking action. He

th« complaints in this list to be true he was
to pursue the same course with respect to
notice as that outlined with reference to
premises named In Schedule A.
It was th« duty of the Police Commis
sioner to invp*tlgate the complaint with
reference to No 106 Morton street and to
verify or disprove it. If the Police Com
missioner did in fact (as it is to be inferred
from Mayor Gaynor'a letter to you) follow
the same .-ours* as in the rase of the Army
and Navy Building, he did so in direct vio
lation of the instructions, issued to him
by me.
I sincerely regret ihe error made by the
examining Inspector of the Mayor* Com
missioners of Accounts, for which I accept
responsibility In the case of the Army and
Navy Building. As the Mayor has already
tendered you an apology oh behalf of his
Commissioner of Police with respect to No.
If* Morton street. I trust that the state
ment of facts which I have submitted to
you in thi3 connection will be satisfactory.
The Mayor refused to be drawn into mak
ing any comment on the police situation
yesterday. He devoted himself entirely to
other matters an .i left the City Hall for
home about 1 o'clock in the. afternoon.
Health Officer Says City's Need
for Extension Is Imperative.
In a communication 10 Health Commis
sioner -Lederle Dr. Herman M. BipE" 1 gen
eral medical officer of the Health Depart
ment, says, reirardlns the request of tho
department for the sum of Slff:.72> for its
research laboratory extension, that there I.°
"immediate necessity for an important ex
pansion of the activities of th«» bacterial
laboratory and a corresponding 1 increase in
the scientific staff of the same."
"Tt would influence as radically the future
development in sanitary work." wild Dr.
Ei?r£3, "as the original establishment of
tho bacteriological laboratories did in 1892
and ML"
According to Dr. Bitr?rf«. a division should
be established for specific therapy and pre
ventive medicine. The entire cost of th«
research laboratories to the tity is much
less*. Dr. Bicgs Bays, than the cost of the
curative remedies produced In the laborato
ries at wholesale prices. Th» city's labora
tories cost last year * >8.'%0. If the city was
not producing its own antitoxins it would
have been necessary to purchase them at a
cost of fit Mi SO. or nearly Jl^.OOw more than
the laboratory budget for the year.
Speaking of the imperative need for such
expansion Dr. Biggs said:
"It is my deliberate opinion that there is
as imperative a need for the establishment
of a laboratory for specific therapy and
preventive medicine at this time as there
was in ISV4 for the establishment of the
antitoxin laboratory. As indicating what
others are rioing. it i? interesting to note
that Harvard University, in Boston, and
Washington University, in St. Loui». have
just established departments of preventive
medicine to train men for this kind of
work. The laboratory force should be re
quired to devote their undivided attention
and their entire time to the work."
Brooklyn Magistrate Triumphs
Over Charges of Misa Hickey.
After an all day trial yesterday in Brook
lyn, the Court of Special Sessions acquitted
Maeistrat" E. Oairtim Ifigsinbotham. of the
Bedford avenue court, of the charges made
by Miss Mury Hickey. nineteen years old.
of No. ar Bedford avenue. The case lasted
until 7 o'clock in the evening, whet.
Justice Isaac Franklin Russell and Asso
ciate Jnatfees Ryan an<l Salmon decided
that the magistrate wag not guilty.
Dr. Philip A Brennan represented
Magistrate nixginbotham and Assistant
t Attorney Robert 11. Elder appeared
for tha people. After the decision Magis
trate Higginbotham shook hands with Dr.
Brennan itnd. turning to Mr. Elder, he
said, with extended hand, that he wished
to thaiik him al<=<-.
The prosecuting attorney, however, was
thoroughly disappointed at the outcome
and ignored the magistrate 3 proffered
hand. Mr: Higginbotham, unruffled at the
rebuff, only smiled and then walked out of
the courtroom with his counsel.
Mi*.* Hickey "*aa the first witness <ail.>d.
Magistrate Hig^inbotham followed her on
the stand and denied all her charges. In
the course of his testimony Mr. Elder In
troduced three young women into the pro
ceedings, and asked file magistrate if he
had not acted toward them as Miss Hickey
said he had acted toward her. Tha magis
trate's counsel was quick with an objection,
which was sustained by the court.
tn summing: up Dr. Brennan anru«d that
Miss Hickey's testimony of the alleged as
sault was uncorroborated.
"The reputation of a public man depends
on the decision of this court," he declared.
"Allow me to Bay." Mr. Elder replied.
"tSat the safety of many young girls also
is depending op. the decision of this court."

California Net Appears To Be
Closing in Rapidly.
San Francis©. Oct. 3.— The net thrown out
by the authorities appears to to* closing
in rapidly on the dynamiters of "The I*»
Angeles Times."
"It is certain that the dynamite, which
we know was secured at GUtnt. was taken
to Los Angeles and that it was the same
dvn^ite used In the destruction of The
Times' building, and in the bombs found
at the Zeehandelaar and Otis residences,"
said Earl Roger?, of Los Angelas, who Is
in charge of the man hurt. "We have or
dered arrests," continued ST*. Rogers. "and
we have men now In jail at several points,
both between hare and Los Anjjeles and
cast of Fan Francisco."
It 13 estimated that only 200 pounds of
the total amount has been accounted for.
Los Angeles. Oct. .V Not only will the
lecal strike of the njetal trades and brew
ery workers not be declared off. but the
State Federation of Labor guaranteed
moral and financial assistance to the strik
ers, according to a resolution adopted t»y
the* state convention last night. The fol
lowing motion offered by Andrew J. Galla
gher, the San Francisco labor leader, who
is suing General Harrison Grey Oti*. of
••The Los Angeles Times', for criminal
libel, was adopted:
"The convention declares its sens* that
th* strike be not declared off. but that it
continue until real Industrial freedom—
freedom for working men and women to
have a voice in determining the conditions
of th-ir labor— be established in Los An
geles, and we guarantee to the strikers
ev=ry ounce of moral and financial support
that they may need." •
Th«» theory Is advanced that th" men
who carried out the dynamite plot were ex
pert quartz miners from the gold fields of
Northern California. The man who bought
the dynamite used the names of J. L.
Bryson. a Placer County miner, and that
of his neighbor, Morris.

Sued for Divorce.
Chicago. Oet Z- —Mrs. Margaret Horton
Potier Black, who. as Margaret Horton
Potter gained a national reputation as the
author of sensational fiction dealing with
society. Is charged with, habitual drunken
n*?* in a bill for divorce filed by her hus
band. John D. Black, in the Circuit Court
to-day. Mr. Black, who is a lawyer, is a
son of General John O. Black, former
commander in chief of the Grand Army of

Temperature of 82 Degrees Causes
Visions of Springtime.
. Pumpkin? in this vicinity were untouched
by frost last nUrnt. At 2:10 p. m. yesterday
I the temperature registered 82 degrees, but
j the midsummer complaint against these
! figures was in turn registered again by
j suffering individuals who toiled far below
' the ?nne rookery where the record, unusual
j for the season, was made.
Tired men slept on the tender sra.-.-> of
the city's parks from Harlem down to the
Battery. Workingrm^n who had not the
time to do this day dreamed at their desks
of the dimplinsr eddies of whirlpools. Buds
are yet a little timid about patting forth
their blushes, but if this keeps up until
' Thanksgiving it is believed they will appear
. by then.
Those persons who put them on a few
' days ago expect no sympathy.
