Something or a surprise was sprung in the junior on*--mile run. It had been ex pected that Matt Gets would account for first prize, with Joseph Malone, the Mo hawk 'cross country' runner, as a danger ous factor. During the oarly stages v. Powers, an Irish-American Club runner, set the pace, but he gave way a little later to Malono. who was closely attended by W. L. JlcGe*v-of Philadelphia; Gels and O. iir-! lund. of Brooklyn.

"Dope' 9 from Football Critics Harvard Is Stronger than Princeton. Says One. While Others Fail io Agree. Football critics are not of one opinion this season on anything or any team be yond the fact perhaps that the game is safer and freer from injuries. One thinks Harvard is wonderfully strong, another that the eleven is overrated. One says litre that Yale is already beaten by Prince ton and Harvard; another says there that Yale will be ready when the time cornea and will make the Tigers run to cover and humble the Cambridge forces. According to some Pennsylvania ranks at "•■ top, while others deprecate the "poor" showing against the Carlisle Indians. Home say I rlncet day has come, others contend that Princeton was lucky to beat Lafay ette and Dartmouth. Bo It goes Harvard and Princeton am the only teams in the East, of those which deserve a ranking, that have not been beaten or scored on. Cornell and the. Navy liav< not been beaten either, but they have been tied and Cornell scored on. Yale, Pennsyl vania. Dartmouth and West Point among others have tasted defeat. Harvard is stranger than Princeton, is the avowod declaration of "Touchdown" In "The Boston Journal He cays: After seeing Princeton play Saturday and Harvard in 1 •»■ Brown game, I believe that Harvard could defeat the Tigers, provided Harvard could abstain from the fumbles which marred her game at West Point, and this whether or not the Tigers also flayed errorless football. The Princeton roaches think otherwise. They said Saturday night that if Dart mouth's team would follow its logical line of development and "get together" in the next fortnight Saturday's game at the i'olo Grounds in -\'ew York will have Bel tied the "championship" in the East. In this consideration they ignored Perm and took Yalf- for granted ... doubt thti wish was father to the thought. They certainly, in my opinion, underestimate Harvard's present ability to Inject second end even third string men Into a game without ruining team efficiency.

Hal Chase, captain and manager of th* Yankees, defeated Sid Mercer in the Class B amateur three-cushion billiard tourna ment at Doyle's Academy last night. The score was 25 to T. on the same with Colgate on Saturday says: Marked improvement was shown by the university team, both in team work and in the diversified methods of attack. New football was used almost entirely, forward passes, wide end runs and delayed passes being used to gain the required distance for a first down It is true that Yale was held for downs four times within th.- ten yard line, but this ran be explained as partly the result of the new rule against assisting the. runner. Howe played in ins first game of th« season and Yale's consistent gall were largely due to his sensational end runs and well executed forward passes. It begins to look as if Yale would not be. fnr behind her rivals li new football when the time comes to show h«»r full strength, in spit.- of those who can see nothing good in the team's development "Mr. Wtseguy," In "The Philadelphia Press, •' said after th*» Pennsylvania-Carlisle Indian football came: "Pennsylvania team stronger than victory shows." I). L*. Reeves, sporting editor of "The Philadelphia Public Ledger," Fays of the same same: "Penn sylvania was fortunate. . . . Then was never ■ time in the contest that the lied and Blue eleven looked twelve points stronger than Carlisle." Who shall decide when critics disagree? Dudley Dean, the Harvard quarterback In 1800, Ik quoted as Baying: Harvard Is strong, but not wonderfully bo. The present game takes one back twenty yearn in some respect*. In 18M we didn't have the onside kick or the for ward pass; our interference In the open was not so good as now; we could, how ever, pull and push the runner and this lost was a good offset to the firm Seven men had to be en the line or scrimmage, lust as now. It was then a case of the team that knew the funda mentals, had one or two brilliant, fast backs and had ■ good drop kicker and punter.

Despite the. fact that he was handicapped to a marked degree by a severe cold on the rhest which robbed him of a lor of his old time speed and dash. "Battling" Bill Hurley, the Pasta! "Thunderbolt." admin istered a severe beating to and almost knocker- out Willie Beecher in a ten round bnut at the National Sporting Club of America last night The bout was a one sided affair from the start, and Beecher never showed to the front during the entire, contest and was lucky to last the ten rounds. The bell saved B»echer from a knock-out in the third round and Hurley's wildness and lack of ring generalship saved the East Side lad several times durning the contest. At critical stages, with victory within his grasp. Hurley boxed with a la mentable lack >>( skill, and by running away and clinching desperately when in distress Beecher minaged to last the limit. In the third round Hurley rushed out of his d»rner and forced Beeches around the rine He caught Willie on Th»- point of the jaw and sent him '•rashine to the mat. but the heii ramo to his rescue and ■ km wae prevented While coming from, the bout. Dick Curley, the well known manager of boxers, ran his touring car Into an express wagon at 44th street and Broadway. The police guarding the vehicle swooped down on Curley and the latter had considerable trouble In prov ing to the officers that it was not an inten tional assault.

Signal Drill for the Tigers. R. T« eirravti to The Tribune. 1 Princeton. N. J., Nov. 1.-A lons and fast signal drill took the place of the usual scrimmage for the Princeton 'varsity foot ball team this afternoon. Every member of the first eleven, with the exception of Brown, ran through the signals for more than half an hour. Little fault could be found with the work of the players at any time in the drill, and coaches and students alike left the field well satisfied with what they had seen. Old and new plays were run off with wonderful speed and precision. Roper would not be satisfied with anything but perfect execu tion of the plays, and. as a consequence, they had to be rehearsed several times in some instances before he would allow them to pass. He constantly urged the men to faster work, and there was plenty of life and spirit throughout the drill. Sawyer took Brown's place at fullback, but otherwise the 'varsity team lined up intact. Pendleton was at half, and despite his bruised knee had more of his oldtime dash and speed than he has displayed since the early games .if the season. After the 'varsity men had finished their drill two teams were picked from the scrub for a short scrimmage. In this game a line plunger was brought to light the like of whom has not been seen in Princeton since the days of Tim McCormick. His name is Thompson, and he con* from the West, where he won the all-around athletic championship at Chicago last year. Un fortunately for the Tigers, however, he is attending the Princeton Theological Semi nary and came over to the university grid iron this afternoon for a little exercise. He found the exercise a little strenuous, but he created a small sized sensation among the Princeton undergraduates by his play ing. Unassisted he tore through the oppos ing team repeatedly for gains varying from five to fifteen yards at a time. Another man who did good service in the backfield was Vaughn, formerly of Notre Dame, who showed up to good advantage this afternoon. Chrystle ran well in the open field and Farr played a splendid game at quarterback Dartmouth Loses Good Player. [By T^lfsraph to Th» Tribune i Hanover. N. H.. Nov. l. - Dartmouth suffered the first serious football injury of the season to-day, when C P. Dudley, left halfback on the second team, broke his collarbone while in a scrimmage with the "varsity Dudley is a sophomore and last season played a brilliant game on the freshman eleven He was fast developing into "varsity material, but this Injury- will put him out for the remainder of the year. Captain Ryan again was tried at right end and played so well that Randall, the head coach, has decided to keep him per manently in that place. Ahlswede was tried out at the other end in place of Daly, who is still suffering from stomach trouble. He played a fast same and scored a touchdown in the scrimmage by recovering a forward pass. "Bud" Hoban. who has been subbing at quarterback, was to-day tried out at i ft half in place of More-. He played well, and the two brothers as backs will make an interesting combination. George Ho ban played well to-day and scored two touchdowns. The practice was stiff and included line plunging, strap bucking and a scrimmage. Quakers Worrying About Line. [By Telegraph to The Tribune ] Philadelphia. Nov. I.— Pennsylvania's football coaches are determined to develop some sort of a creditable line before Pat urday's game with Lafayette. In their opinion the backfield does not need much practice, because it is far in advance of the line. The forward situation is bo pre carious that Smith prevailed upon F. A. Piekarski. who did the Team so much good last week, to return from his home. In Pittsburg. in order to whip the men into condition. He reported on Franklin Field this afternoon and devoted all his atten tion to the forwards. Ferrier, last year tackle, was used on the 'varsity substitute team for a time, but he was handicapped by his Ignorance of the signals and his lack of condition. He played for only a few minutes. Pre vious to the scrimmage Smith Bent the regular 'varsity through a sharp signal drill. George Brooks devoted much time to coaching Kennedy, one of the new half backs, in punting. Kennedy is a left footed kicker and the best long distance punter in the squad. Cornell Men in Good Condition. [By TMegmpl to Th. Tribune | Ithaca. N. V..

Nov. 1. — Harvard* full complement of football plaryers was on the field to-day. H. Leslie, the full back, was out tn togs, and while he did no hard work he can be used in the Cor nell game if needed. He is the hardest man to stop in the backfield. and also is the strongest back on the defensive. Perkins and Smith, the two centre men. who have been on the hospital list until recently, began hard practice in prepara tion for Harvard's important games that are coming, so that, everything consid ered, the Harvard coaches to-day have all the men on hand and ready for the final touches. There was a short but brisk scrimmage between the regulars and the substitutes behind the fence to-day, and then a lon* drill by the men on signals and forma tion. Work was begun on some of the forward pass plays the team will use in the Dartmouth same, and the kickers also came in for a lot of attention. Cornell is expected to present a stronger attack than the Army did last week against Harvard, and between now and Saturday much attention will be devoted to improving the Crimson's defensive game, which was not good against Brown. Hard Work for N. Y. U. New York University had a hard prac tice yesterday afternoon on Ohio Field against a squad of sailors from the bat tleship Connecticut, under the leadership of Lieutenant Richardson, a former An napolis player. The navy men got en the field before the New York men and greatly amused the crowd with their nautical sig nals, such as "starboard formation." ""full ride." etc. Late m the afteinoon the two teams linen up against each other, with the un derstanding that there should be no scor ing. Then the fun began. The New York team started off with a series of forward passes which completely bewildered the stalwart navy men. The sailors *ere- a bit crude and prone to make flying tackles for the neck or head, and in the first part of the play •killed" quite a few of the New York men off Richardson finailv coaxed 'herr \v tackling, and tn B B the came went off smoothly. Yule played a star game, contlnually running back punts for twenty and thirty yard pains. Belteher, who took Wheelers place at -nd. showed sjoikl form in break ing up the end runs and open plays. Dress ier, another substitute, made himself con spicuous by his breaking through the line. Kennedy and Miller substituted in the back field, both doll . creditable work. The football elevens of the DeWitt Clin ton High School of Manhattan and Boys' High School of Brooklyn will play oil their postponed contest at Saratoga Park. Hal eey street and Broadway, Brooklyn, this afternoon. The game will be called at 3:30 o'clock. FAST RUN TO DRAG HOUNDS Twelve Riders Enjoy Good Sport in Meadow Brook Hunt. Hempstead. Long Island.

QUESTION BILL OF SALE Kerscher May Not Be Allowed to Drive the Cars in Great Driver's "Stable." Word came from Atlanta yesterday *hi* the automobiles in whirr-. Oldfleld has rar^j all over the country prior to his Indefinite, suspension by th* American Automobile Association had been accepted by the rsaa agement of the Atlanta meet as entries^. These cars are a Darracq. a Knox arw4 %■ Benz. The message also states that Ba^. Kerscher. Oldfleld's mechanic, will <}rr?s the Darraco. and the Knox. and that 01<t field ir order to get his cars on to t5» track had sold. or, rather a bill of gala had been given Kerscher of. these two cars. At the .-** .. of th» conte3^ board ot tri« American Automobile Association It was stated last night that Samuel Butl»r. chair. m.in of the contest board, hart started for Atlanta on Monday night to be on the) ground when the races were ran on Thurs day. Friday and Saturday of thi3 week ar.d to watch th» situation. After Oldfleld and Jack Johnson had driven their hippodrome moving pirrurw race at Sheepshead Bay last w-ek Oldfield went directly to Atlanta, stating that he would carry the war into the camp of th« American Automobile, Association and that he had no fear of th» outcom* His ord*r of suspension bars him from any track sanctioned by the governing body or arr race meet so sanctioned either as promoter, owner, entrant or driver. And the sus pension was made further effective gainst the specific Bern »-ar. the 2f»^-hors»power "Blitzen" Benz with which he gave as •*- hibition at Rtadville. Mass., the last stra-sr that broke the contest board's back. The Atlanta d:spatch of yesterday gt-v«s> no information concerning the driv-r ot the Benz car. so it is evident that OldSeld decided the wisest thing to do was la main no effort to use that particular rraehl-e. but to make his fight on the other two cars, the Darraeq and the Kr.ox. which have been the other two members of his -racing stable." K«rscher has for som» time been a mem ber of the Oldfleld camp and has trax--ll«j with him widely, driving the Darrac-; ard 'acting as Oidfleld's helper in many ways. There is no suspension operative acainst him. and his entry could naturally be ac cepted by the Atlanta manag»m»nt with out tea of incurring the displeasure of the American Automobile Association. It was pointed out. ho»»w, at the American Automobile Association offlce yesterday that the bill of sale was a. palpable subterfuee to get Oldf.eld's cars' on the track, that while the existing st» pension did not operate against these fro cars as it does against the B-nz. the American Autorr Association would be inclined to resent this action as a further defiance of its authority, and if the mar. agement persisted in receiving the entries of Kerscher to use these cars it is entire: 1^ within the power of the content bnard to withdraw the sanction granted to J. H. Nye for this three-day meet. The Senegambian in the wood supcly is that the Atlanta managemerr has a con tract with Oldfleld to appear made befnr* his suspension was announced. Hence th« report that it has accemed Ker«ch* r s entries. J. H. Nye Is a successful and a. wise manager. He has arranged a thr-» day meet which has nev»r been approached in th?s country for class ot entries. It is hardly to be ?'irrnw that he win jeopar dize- his meet for Mr. Oldfreld ? contract. more especially since counsel retained b-r the American Automobile Association ha« advised that Oldfse!<: contract could not be enforced, as it was made with the un derstanding that OldSeld was in sood standing. In fact, he was a: tba ttee tie agreement was mad". But his suspension since nullifies the cos tract, according to the advice nf the law •»- Henr» the Atlanta .-.;„—„-- — a throw out the entries without fear of re taliation by suit on Oldfields part, and there la «very probability that the cars will not appear ar Atlanta Wnkes-Barr- Perm..
